BBC and the PEAR Proposition

Apparently Yoko Ono recently commissioned a piece on the PEAR lab for the BBC. Her producer did some shoddy edits on my interview material from the PEAR Proposition and then introduced the material himself. Of note: I get no mention. Neither does the product (for sale here) that he lifted most of his material from.

Take a listen to the BBC's piece. Everything that's not Brenda or the producer is directly from the PEAR Prop (~30%). As I understand it, he didn't go to the lab, so his descriptions of the scene are also from the DVD. I would have loved it if he had approached this as a review of an educational release instead of as "journalism". As is, it makes me sad.

In light of the recent unexpected resurrection of GUR, and other things, I find myself in a disturbed state of mind. What is going on here?

...any publicity is good publicity... the recognition, if deserved, will come with time...
