...the two of them are like Carnival barkers trying to cheat the innocents out of their money. To think that Fletch would so openly diss the lines he doesn't carry just to make a buck. Damn, that's desparate.

Popstar, I think that's unfair and going too far. While I can see your point regarding Fletcher dissing products he doesn't carry, that doesn't have to mean that he does so out of spite or just to make a buck. Not that there's anything wrong with making a buck, as long as one does so in an honorable manner.

But isn't it also possible that he doesn't carry products he doesn't like by choice? While I admit each is possible, neither "has" to be the "correct" answer. Unless you know something about the subject that I don't.

But as far as cheating the "innocents out of their money", I don't believe that's a fair assessment. At least from my experience with purchases made from Mercenary, Fletcher has always been fair, and has gone out of his way with his time to be helpful to me.

As far as the PT thing, no worries - I didn't think you were addressng that to me. I was just offering my observations and comments to the discussion.

And as far as GM's credibility, class, experience and accomplishments, I have nothing but the utmost respect for him. I wish him only the best - no matter where life takes him.

Hey Lynn, thanks for letting everyone know that even YOU can't stay away from the Mixerman forum. I mean, that's just fantastic. I'm going to call my Mom!

Love ya Robo!

Enjoy,

Eric,

Why do you think we're doing this? It's only to draw you back and apparently it's working!

By the way, I guess my VERY FIRST guess on what the tick, tick was all about was RIGHT ON THE MONEY. Dude, you're so predictable...

I'm sure your Mom will be impressed.

By the way, I forgot to mention that my posting and reading days at your forum ended over two years ago. So tell her not to be too impressed.

You wrote:

I'll be honest. In some respects the bomb has gone off for me as well, albeit self-imposed. I won't likely be getting into it with the likes of popstar or Curve any more. Those days are over. Partially due to the coming circumstances.

So when does the new "kinder, gentler" MM make his debut? Or is he reserved for your new forum?

You also wrote:

I'm done now. Really.

But you aren't done. Really.

You just can't stay away from here, can you? Even though you have stated your intentions and attention will be elsewhere. You're still here with your old persona and snappy comebacks.

How 'bout them spots?

Too late Lynn. you already blew it. I've already stopped the presses on the book, and put that as a blurb.

Nice try though.

It wasn't these past two years. I last posted in 2002 as I recall. I better go back and see what I said before I "out" myself.

Is that a fact?

As far as malice, mixerman, or any of the "shit-brigade" goes.... maybe you can fool others, and maybe you can even fool yourselves... but you can't fool everyone. And ultimately.... you have to answer to your maker, if you believe in that sort of thing. Don't get so worked up about people seeing through the facade.

It is the height of irony for GM to be in a forum with you all, given your egeregious afronts to his forum here.

Well, to keep MM from having too much spare time on his hands, I'll offer these hints.

1) There are only four posts from me at his forum during my lifetime.

2) The last was made on Sept. 2, 2002. It was regarding his potential future in this industry after publicly bad-vibing the group(s) he works with. Mine was one of 647 responses in that thread.

3) The only other time I posted was March, 2002 and there were three posts in two days.

4) As you can tell, I have been a very active participant in his forum. }:-)
(Call Momma and tell her not to break out the champagne yet!)

5) The only other interactions MM and I have had are at A) my forum, B) Glenn Meadow's mastering forum, or C) here. All are a matter of public record in forums where he cannot delete my posts.

6) I doubt he'll believe any of the above, after he's done searching for the posts.

7) I forgot, there was a fifth post but MM saw fit to delete it after I spoke the unspeakable name.

8) MM, I did look for that apology, but oddly it seems to have disappeared. Maybe you thought you heard an apology when it didn't really exist.

For those of you who can't find out who I was (how obscure can those clues be?), I'll post an excerpt here. Tomorrow.

Sick, sick, sick.

Oh the suspense is killing me.

Or maybe I should just remain anonymous and everybody will think I'm really cool and maybe I'm Phil Ramone just dropping by MM's forum. I bet that would work. I'll be GoodMixer, the Anonymous. And everyone can think I'm Bob Clearmountain. Too cool.

Tomorrow, all will be known.

It's bad enough when one plays this silly game, isn't it? When there are two playing it, it's just nauseating, don't you agree?

I don't remember having offended GM or this forum as a whole by any stretch of imagination.

I see anger from you and some other posters.

Why is that ?

It's only the internet, relax

You'll soon have a place to gather where me and Mixerman and most of the so called "shit brigade" that you seem to despise won't hang anymore. You will have two new forums where trolling won't be admitted anymore with some great moderators.

There is more joy than sadness in these news.

Peace

I'm still not quite sure how this can be accomplished. If you guys can do it, then more power to you. It should be interesting to see what exactly you have planned to accomplish this (seemingly impossible) task.

Since it's obvious that MM is hovering over his computer doing searches by date range over at PSW, I'll save him the time and be gracious enough to allow him to sleep soundly tonight.

You can read all this at PSW if you'd like ( The Dictator Speaks from PSW ). By the way, my pseudonym was "Bettermixr." (Oh no. Now everybody knows I'm not Bob Clearmountain!)

But just in case someone is feeling trigger happy with the delete key at PSW, I'm going to post it here so no one can edit it.

For the astute readers, be on the lookout for that "apology." I still haven't found it.

Something about stooping to this level makes me feel young again. It's all so juvenile.

But MM finds it so invigorating that I hate to deprive him of his fun.

Sleep well, MM.

And by the way, you don't have to tell your Mom. She can be impressed with you even if it was only four posts two years ago.

Lynn,

Thanks for sharing...that is some FUNNY stuff. Ah, Eric, that's what we love about you!

Anyway, Eric, in that thread, you said this..."Of course, I do feel a little guilty giving Radar this new name, as IZ cares about the customers need, do not charge for technical support, and are not interested in selling you the same slightly improved product, over, and over, and over again."

I'd like to ask you about this. Please know that this question is not meant in any way to put IZ into a bad light...I actually applaud their attempts to providing excellent customer service. BUT, in looking at this from a purely business standpoint, I think IZ was (or is) wrong for NOT charging for tech support and product updates, etc. I mean, if we look at Apple, for instance, they've asked $129.00 for OS X 10.0, then another $129.00 for 10.1, and another for 10.2 and another for 10.3, if I'm not mistaken. Yes, it's true that Digi charges for major updates, and simply because I understand the necessity for companies like IZ and Digi to pay their programmers and service techs, I am all too happy to pay it. I've paid several hundreds of thousands of dollars for consoles in my life, and I've always felt that part of that cost was to cover (in advance) the future tech support that I'd need. But at the relatively low price point at which IZ and Digi operate, paying for updates and tech support is something that I expect and actually hope for, because I feel it is my obligation if I am to expect ongoing development of the platform.

My worry about IZ, as I expressed to Fletcher many months ago, is that by NOT charging for updates and tech support, they are potentially hurting their long range success as a company. I know that both you and Fletcher have been great supporters of IZ, and in that light, wouldn't you WANT to pay for upgrades and tech support in order to support the company and its platform? I know that when Apple releases its new operating systems, they typically hold a "party" night at the Apple retail stores. If you've never attended one of these (they often have 10% off sales on computers on those nights, as well), you should make an effort to do so, because it will show you how loyal Apple's users are, because typically the lines to get into the stores on these nights are often blocks long and those lines are made up of people wanting to go in and pony up their $129.00 for the latest update. I know that I'm ALWAYS happy to pay Apple money, because I totally believe in their entire philosophy about providing us with cool products to enhance our lives. Getting back to IZ, I think it is widely known that their RADAR is a great platform, but I believe that ongoing updates and tech support should require additional fees from the users. It is a fair way to continue development of the platform.

Thoughts?

Hello again popstar..not to worry; IZ does charge for major updates and has for quite some time (over a year I believe).

Yup. That, until our evil side comes out, get passionate and start flamming each other. We all have been out of the line on this forum on the past (present?), and that's why I encouraged to keep our evil twins on another forum that we can flush down with no regrets. Call it a neccessary evil. Sorry if I wasn't clear at first when I mentioned our twins.

You'll notice that I'm not up here flaming all sorts of people. Actually, I think I was the first to publicly congrat you on your recent Grammy nom.
You're right, and I thank you again for it. I would love to know the real you so I can congratulate you as well.

I'm actually happy to see others do well. I'd even be happy to see MM or Fletcher do well as long as they didn't use baseless (hey, I guess I should say BASS-less, get it?) product-flaming to get attention.

In case some of you were wondering if aliens had commandeered my ISP or 11 year olds were now writing my posts, fret not. 'Tis true that this is not the normal voice of Lynn Fuston that you have been hearing.

What you have been experiencing is a game. It is only a game. Had this been a real emergency, you would have been informed where to tune in your area.

Seriously though, it's a game that I originated years ago. It's called the MixerPong game. Think of it like Ms. Pacman where you chase the moderator (MM) and try not to get eaten or deleted. Or actually it's more like internet Pong. You bandy words like ping pong balls with MM and see who wins. If you start to get the best of him, he'll probably start posting things like "crunch, crunch, crunch" or "Pass the brewski," or other such unrelated nonsense.

It's quite entertaining really. There are no rules. But the best thing is that you can keep it going as long as you like. See MM has the same affliction that I fall victim to sometimes. If you hit him the ball, he can't not respond. He has to return the volley. It's like the child responding where all you hear is "I know you are but what am I?" over and over again.

Even when MM says he's done, he can't walk away. This thread and even his quote on page 1 are testament to that. Maybe the new "kinder, gentler" MM will be able to walk away. And that will be a great loss of entertainment value for the internet. But you should try it sometime. It's a very entertaining game. I choose to only play it once every two years or so, so it stays fresh for me and gives him a chance to stock up on new witty comebacks.

I now return you to the regularly scheduled Lynn Fuston. And if this is indeed the last game of MixerPong I get to play, it was fun. No one was hurt. And even MM's Mom got a kick out of it. And MM got a fallacious* quote for his new book. We all win.

*fallacious

\Fal*la"cious\, a. [L. fallaciosus, fr. fallacia: cf. F. fallacieux. See Fallacy.] Embodying or pertaining to a fallacy; illogical; fitted to deceive; misleading; delusive; as, fallacious arguments or reasoning.


So pass the potato chips and say the magic words with me and we'll go back to where we started.....

"Tick, tick, tick.....

Thud."

Eric,

Popstar,

Please do me a favor, and do not drag me into your interminably infantile rivalries with Mixerman.

You do not speak for me. We are not related. My last name is not Vincent, it is Schneckenlinie. Vincent is my middle name and I only use it as a PKA because it's easier to spell, pronounce and remember. Vincent was my great grandfather's name, and it in no way implies any connection to you whatsoever, nor any endorsement by me or my company Curve Dominant Sound&Vision of anything you say or do. On the contrary.

Where or how you and Mixerman find the time to post such long and boring attacks against each other is way beyond my need to know, let alone my comprehension.

What you can most certainly count on is my absence from this time-wasting bullshit on PSW. Marsh looks cool on the surface, but it's not even up and running yet, and already Mixerman has demonstrated the now-legendary negativity that is sure to tank the whole enterprise.

But you two boys have fun.

Sorry, Curve,

You and I have both had fun in the past ganging up on our buddy, but I didn't mean to imply any connection other than answering MM's post that you and I were welcome over there at any time. No problem...it won't happen again!

Popstar,

Consider yourself a party of one in that recollection.

Let me break that down in the most clear terms I possibly can:

1) I am not one to "gang up" on anybody, with anybody. My opinions are mine, and mine alone. I take full personal and professional responsibility for everything I post on these forums and elsewhere.

2) Nothing I have posted requires validation from any third parties, and that includes you. Anyone who either agrees or disagrees with anything I post does so in their own interest, without my consent or approval.

3) My disagreements with Mixerman have not been "fun" from my perspective. That is your choice of verbage, and yours alone, so please do not speak for me in that regard.

There is only one defining source of my disagreements with Mixerman, and that has to do with his Pro Tools HD "Bass-Lite" hoax, which I consider an unpardonable breach of engineering ethics.

In the words of Sonny Corleone: "It's not personal, it's business."

It's one thing to say, "I don't like this platform" or "It sounds like ass" or whatever. Those are opinions, and so can be interpreted as such.

But for Mixerman to stage an intentionally decieving propoganda campaign against a popular platform based upon his personal prejudice, guised as a professional "finding," went way beyond the bounds of "engineering" standards.

If GM, Bob Olhsson, Fletcher, Kenny Gioia, et al choose to overlook Mixerman's propensity for such shenanigans, which run in total opposition to their oft-stated claims of being standard-bearers of integrity in the audio engineering sciences, so be it.

I neither know nor care to know what their motivations are in joining Mixerman's forum. But for Mixerman to come here and gloat over GM's involvement in advance of GM making his own statement, tells you how lacking in class Mixerman is.

But that's nothing new.

Eric,

Whoa...whoa...I already apologized, no? And I never said one word about "validating" your opinions. I don't propose to do that for anyone up here. I guess at this point I should say something like "That is your choice of verbage, and yours alone, so please do not speak for me in that regard."

And by the way, I believe that your quote was actually Michael Corleone talking to Sonny. Or did Sonny say it first, then Michael repeated it?

ps
