A Moon Shaped Pool[edit]

Yo. If you have time, I'd appreciate your feelings about the A Moon Shaped Pool article, specifically the Release section. Another editor has recently moved the special edition information into its own section. I'm in two minds about whether this is necessary. They've also added a photo of the special edition taken from Radiohead's site, which I'm guessing is a copyright infringement, right? (Copyright stuff has always been one of my blind spots on Wikipedia.) Popcornduff (talk) 10:12, 2 October 2016 (UTC)

Pod[edit]

Hi BLZ, how are you? I'm writing to ask whether you would possibly be interested in collaborating to any degree on Pod (The Breeders album). I really liked your editing on Title TK a lot in its recent FAC, and I'm sure the Pod article would benefit greatly by any contributions you could provide. The state it is in right now is that I have added lots of material (and have other possible source material organized at User:Moisejp/sandbox), but:

  • the lead needs developing (that should be easy once the rest of the article is solidified);
  • I have a bit more material to try to add for the Recording section;
  • there may be potential to do something different or additional in the Music and lyrics section—I have source material for it organized in my sandbox;
  • need to use a sound clip whose caption will justify its inclusion in the article;
  • the Release and reception section is currently mostly negative-ish reviews, so I want to add more reviews, and try to make more use of paraphrasing;
  • I plan to find some free images to include;
  • as with any article, it's always useful to have a second set of eyes for seeing opportunities for copy-editing and polishing of the prose.

I know you're in law school and often don't have a lot of time; I, too, am quite busy in real life and have not been working on this article as fast as I would like. But anyway, I just want to say that, if you are interested, any degree of contribution would be welcome. If you wanted to do a full collaboration, that would be great. Or if you wanted me to continue to do most of the work, with you just chipping in here and there, that would be fine too. Or another option, if you like, is I could keep working on it myself, then I'll probably take it to GAN, and then to a Peer Review, at which point I might ask you to look at it then. Thank you for considering, and of course no worries if you don't think you'll have time for it. Have a great day! Moisejp (talk) 16:43, 7 January 2017 (UTC)

@Moisejp: Hey! Thanks for approaching me on this, I'd be happy to help out. I'm always a little surprised that Breeder and Pod in particular haven't picked up more retrospective acclaim, especially since Cobain held them in such high regard. Maybe they were too grungy for the new wave of critics and too indie for most people who got started getting into alt-rock/grunge 10-20 years after the fact; either way, I'm glad to see someone working on their music here because there's no doubt they are under-appreciated. Since you're more familiar with the source material I think it would be easier for you to put together a complete draft first, at which point I can give it a solid once-over with the same type of edits I gave at the Title TK FAC. I'm also about to start another semester and have a few Wikipedia projects of my own in mind, so I think a supporting role would work best. The sandbox with notes is a great resource for me and will make the source review really easy. Hit me up when you think it's ready for an an eye and I'll do what I can to help you get it to GA- or FA- level fairly quickly. —BLZ · talk 06:31, 9 January 2017 (UTC)
• Thanks so much! I'll definitely be in touch when my complete draft is done. Take care and talk again soon. Moisejp (talk) 16:11, 9 January 2017 (UTC)

Secrets article[edit]

Hey. I recall you messaging me once about Secrets (Gil Scott-Heron album). I don't remember if I got back to you or not, but I added some stuff to it last night. There wasn't much literature or sources on it, so I think I've exhausted whatever it is I could've contributed. Dan56 (talk) 21:28, 28 January 2017 (UTC)

Hello, I've officially nominated OK Computer to be Wikipedia's TFA for May 21, 2017, which will be the 20th anniversary of its release.

TFAR[edit]

As a matter of courtesy, I thought that I should let you know that I'm not planning to run OK Computer this month. The Ray Charles song has a more significant 50th anniversary, and we don't run two music articles in the same month. You could move your nom to unspecified date, or just wait to next year, sorry Jimfbleak - talk to me? 06:43, 21 April 2017 (UTC)

@Jimfbleak: While I'm disappointed to hear that, I do understand and I appreciate the notice. Wikipedia should certainly prioritize a half-century milestone for a music giant like Ray Charles, and running too many music articles in a short time, let alone on back-to-back days, should be avoided. I wonder if there might be some flexibility: although OK Computer's first official release anywhere occurred 20 years ago on May 21 — it was first released in Japan on that date — its first release in the band's home country occurred on June 16. The Japanese date isn't particularly special except that it was first; other national release dates (in Canada or the US) don't have much particular weight as anniversaries, but the 20th anniversary of the album's release in the UK is special in its own right. I've even found, while doing research for the article, that news sites have marked release anniversaries on June 16 rather than May 21, and sites that have used either May 21 or June 16 typically haven't clarified for the reader that they're interpreting either the "first" or the "UK" date as the "official" date. If spacing music articles a month apart is a sufficient gap, and there are no similar scheduling issues in June, could the article wait until that anniversary? Also, if I do choose to move the request to June 16, should I open up a new nomination or copy-paste the current discussion to June 16? —BLZ · talk 14:04, 21 April 2017 (UTC)
One problem we have is that, although there is a general shortage of articles that haven't been at TFA, some topics, like music, are over-supplied. I write bird articles, which aren't even helped by a date connection, and some may never run because of the surplus of avian FAs. I don't see why you shouldn't try for the June date, the connection seems reasonable. I'd be inclined to follow the protocol used when renominating at FAC, set up a new nomination, but ping your reviewers to ask if they will look again. I'll leave the nom up until I schedule the Ray Charles date, so you might even garner some more !votes Jimfbleak - talk to me? 15:44, 21 April 2017 (UTC)
@Jimfbleak: Sounds good! And yes, totally get the glut of music (and entertainment, generally) FAs and how it's just something I'll have to work around, if it works out. Thanks again for the heads-up. —BLZ · talk 16:31, 21 April 2017 (UTC)

Environmental Justice Article Nomination[edit]

Hey! You left a really helpful comment yesterday on my plea for help with the Indigenous Environmental Network page. I really appreciate your kindness and interest in the topic (and your music page edits are impressive). I withdrew the FA nomination and renominated the page as a good article, and would be super grateful if you could help us reach that status. Thank you so much!

So I've fixed some of the things Ian pointed out and I think the article is on it's way, my group members are still working on fixing the citations within the sections we worked on. Just wanted to make sure you've seen this (and also to let you now we have until may 6 to get the article to GA status, so I'm putting a lot of work in.) @Brandt Luke Zorn
