Everyone and their dog has already linked to Conservapedia -- the wiki for the hydrocephalic and home-schooled -- but seriously, this is without question the best trainwreck I've ever seen on the internet. As one commenter pointed out, it's not just that they're crazy, they're crazy about crazy things -- like the use of "BCE" and "CE" instead of "B.C." and "A.D.", and how using the British spelling for certain words is evidence of anti-American bias. I'm not making this up.
Hilarious commentary abounds -- see Jon Swift, for starters. But why don't we take a quick survey of all of their music-related entries to date?
Beethoven: "Ludwig Van Beethoven was a German musician who lived from 1770-1827. He was a great pianist and composer, and his work is among the most famous music ever written. The most remarkable thing about Beethoven is that he completely lost his hearing, yet continued to compose music despite the fact that he could not even hear himself play. In fact, some of his greatest works were composed after he had fallen deaf, including the famous Ninth Symphony. He lived during the transitional period between the Classical and Romantic ages in music. Some of his most famous songs include Fur Elise and Moonlight Sonata."
Stravinsky: "Igor Stravinsky was famous Russian composer. In his piece, The Rite of Spring, which he wrote in 1913, he broke away from traditional views of music by having the instruments play in different keys simultaneously."
Recorder: "A recorder is a musical instrument about a foot long. You play it by blowing through a whistle-like mouthpiece known as a fipple, and putting your fingers on holes to prevent air from coming out. Baroque and Renaissance music written 'for flute' would have been played on a recorder. The modern 'flute'—made of silver, held sideways, and played by blowing across it— was not developed until the 1800s."
Musical Harmony: "Musical harmony was invented in the late 800s A.D. Singers in monasteries like St. Gall in Switzerland improved the basic chant by adding a voice in parallel motion in order to sign in mostly perfect fourths or fifths along with the original tune. This was the beginning of musical harmony, and is known as the organum. It later became the counterpoint."
Jazz: "Jazz is an entirely American style of music that originated in New Orleans during the 1920s. It combines traditional European music with African American music."
The Beatles: "The Beatles were one of the most influential rock bands of the 20th century. They were the most successful band, selling over 1 billion records. The four Beatles were John Lennon (1940-1980), George Harrison (1943-2001), Paul McCartney (1942- ), and Ringo Starr (1940- ). Many of the Beatles songs were written by Lennon and McCartney, Lennon writing the lyrics and McCartney writing the music."
The Vans Warped Tour: "A punk, hardcore,ska, and emo music festival series sponsored by Vans Shoes that has occured every summer since 1994. Lasting all day and having over 50 stops in the US. It is best known for having large numbers of bands or artists playing throughout the day, sometimes over 100! There is also usually a skateboarding demo as well. Bands such as: The casualties, Senses Fail, Nofx, Less than jake, Atreyu, thursday, and even Joan Jett and the blackhearts have appeared at past warped tour dates."
Examples of bias in Wikipedia: "Wikipedia claims about 1.5 million articles, but what it does not say is that a large number of those articles have zero educational value. For example, Wikipedia has 1075 separate articles about "Moby" and "song". Many hundreds of thousands of Wikipedia articles -- perhaps over half its website -- are about music, Hollywood, and other topics beneath a regular encyclopedia."
