"You have worked a lot on your own, haven't you ?"

"Yes, sir. I have."

"Your report specifies the authorship of articles and books, the production of records, the curating of exhibits and executive positions at major record companies."

"I'm not presently disposed to discuss these operations, sir."

"Did you not work on books and exhibits about punk, hip hop, the May 1968 student uprising to name a few?"

"No, sir."

"Did you not create reissues of records by artists like The Monks, DEVO,
Os Mutantes and Missippippi Fred McDowell?"

"Sir, I am unaware of any such activities or operations - nor would
I be disposed to discuss such operations if they did in fact exist, sir."
