ENOUGH, already!!!

Recommended Posts

Okay, I've been here since mid-2004 and don't post a lot, but I'm always reading... and I've been sitting here at 999 posts for a few days now.

 

I've been looking for a suitable topic or thread to ascend into whatever state of exhaultedness you hand out for 1,000 posts... but I just gotta say that there's been enough silliness on this forum lately that my silence must end!

 

1. Trading a Nord Electro 2 for an XK-1 is idiocy.

 

2. Lawrence Gowan is NOT THAT GOOD. In fact, any of us can make ourselves sound no less artistic by playing pseudo-classical finger exercises with the portamento switch on.

 

3. We don't know what's ahead for the iPad any more than we knew what another of Apple's derivative gadgets - the iPod - was going to become.

 

4. Speaking of derivative, "The 80s."

....'nuff said.

 

5. All I want to say about the Yamaha CP1, CP5 and CP50 is: Look Before You Heap. Or, Hear Before You Smear. Something like that.

 

6. Sue: go buy the right sustain pedal.

 

.... guess that's about enough to get me out of purgatory and on to the next millenia.

 

Meanwhile, Happy Friday!! :wave:

 

....and 1,000 pardons!

How about a nice pic of Dr. Herbert Ross Reaver, then?

 

"Dr. Herbert Ross Reaver, called "the most arrested chiropractor" in history, was an incorrigible criminal. As soon as he finished a jail term, he'd go home and break the law again. Soon, he'd be back before a judge for another sentence to the workhouse. Dr. Reaver wasn't a thief, a murderer or a vagrant. His crime?

Practicing chiropractic."

Drawback, congrats on Platinum status. I enjoyed the post reaching that milestone too. :thu:

 

7. There is way too much time spent discussing any new digital piano.

 

8. With all due respect, Joey D should spend more time at the salad bar.

I'm afraid that still puts JD in close proximity to food. I think he should spend more time at the Universal, er, World Gym.

 

A Costco membership and steady diet of Slim Quick, er, Fast would help too. JD's still one organ playing mf'er though. :D

 

I hope Herbie records his next project using a combination of DX tines and the Rhodes tone from the "Monster" album. :laugh::cool:

PD

Instrumentation is meaningless - a song either stands on its own merit, or it requires bells and whistles to cover its lack of adequacy, much less quality. - kanker

:laugh: aHAHAHAHAHAHAHAaaa... err. Yeah.

 

:snax:

 

Hi Sue. :wave:

 

 

He laughs. :D So you really want to talk about this, huh? You know I ought to kick all your butts. I ask for help and I get a vocabulary lesson and assorted reasons why it couldn't be done.

 

Hey if you ever need help, .. I'll give you a good referral.

Just imagine how much better JD's playing would be if each of his fingers didn't weigh as much as an extremity. I think he is the only person I know who weighs as much as his instrument.

 

That could be potentially offensive.

 

So could that ^

That's exactly what I told my wife the other day regarding JD.
