Can't find time to do both? Who will feed your GAS pains? Who will debate nuances of clonewheels with you? Who will argue the best beer with you? Who will....?

 

Jokes aside, did someone / something piss you off or are you just getting ready to start a whopper of a project?

Time to stop following this forum and make music instead, goodbye Cowboys and GASers.

 

R U CRAZY?

 

No, Fred. We will not allow this to happen.

 

Besides, I believe you owe a few of us money... or a brewski... or a date with your sistrah. :cool:

 

Do not go and leave your debts unpaid. For we will find you and haunt your dreams. :evil:

I'm tempted to say "drama queen," but I won't. If I did, then he'll go, "see, it's exactly that kind of thing that's making me leave." :wave:

Why so black and white? Are blogs an addiction that some people have to declare they're stopping as a "cold turkey" approach? Why not just stop for a while and if the mood strikes you, read a few comments. I'm always having to consider if the topic is worth following.

I think we may need more information before we can arrive at any conclusion concerning an addiction. But to answer your question, a "cold turkey" approach is often needed to treat an addiction, and in many cases is the recommended course of action. Behavior is always communication, and if someone engages in a recurrent behavior despite negative outcomes (e.g., problems with work, family, legal issues), that may suggest the behavior is beyond their control. While moderation may be a goal, some folks cant do moderation until they negotiate the underlying issues regarding the addiction. If they say they can, I often ask, So hows that been working for you? The data often suggests a more restrictive approach/environment is needed. But again, more information.....

Personally, I find that this forum supplements, rather than hinders, my music making.

Big +1.

 

edit: expanding on that thought, I hang out with lots of musicians, but very few keyboard players. Probably because there are very few keyboard players. This is literally the only place I can go to talk about my issues. Not to mention my "issues."

I'm tempted to ask where this kind of attitude comes from, but I won't.

Mine or his?

 

As far as my attitude, perhaps it's nothing Fred is doing and I'm reading too much into his post. However, I'm a bit tired of the people making a big deal about what's wrong with this forum AND making noise about it when they leave. If you don't like it so much that you don't want to be here, just go.

 

Imagine you are at an event, and someone stands up and says loudly, "you guys are a bunch of jerks, I don't want to be here with you any more, good-BYE!!!"

 

It is possible Fred was merely the guy at the event saying, "I have a lot of things to do, I have to get up early in the morning. Goodbye and take care." If that's the case then I'm not talking about him. :)

Ha ha! I can relate to the sentiment :) It's easy to spend a lot of time here, and then realize "oh damn I didn't practice at all!". I'm not saying it's inevitable- I've been practicing like crazy- but it's a potential hazard.

 

See ya Fred. Don't be a stranger! :)

There are lots of distractions in the world. Instead of practicing and making music, I could be watching TV, working on the house, watching porn, posting worthless comments on FB, out drinking in a bar, playing my PS3...if I'm going to procrastinate, I have many outlets. At least this one is music related, keeps music on my mind, teaches me a thing or two, and is legal.

these things are not necessarily mutually exclusive if you're a good multi-tasker

Are you kidding? You can visit Keyboard Corner and at the same time watch porn... Forget about this?

 

On the other hand, this is what may have driven him away....

I posted that yesterday on another topic... Pretty funny (and somewhat offensive... In many ways... )

Although I have just started posting here. I think this is a fantastic, informative, and friendly place. I doubt there's a better KB site out there, that has such an interesting group of folks, who even share their soul at times. IMO, a place to share and listen openly has great merits, since many of you here seem to have a good bond with one another. Years ago, my doc told me to stay away from cancer forums, in that she felt they would drain a newbie. Well, she was partly correct, yet this comes back to the moderation issue and it's normal for some members to leave. You all deserve credit for staying the course, and making a dry eyed newb like me, feel welcome :) !

Hey Fred, I get where you're coming from in one sense, ie, oftentimes browsing and posting here takes a back seat to life and making music ... as stated before, it's not black and white. If you were intending to politely say you won't be around for a while, that's cool. But there's no rule how often you have to check in, or how long you have to stay, right? I leave for weeks, sometimes months ... no one seems bothered by that. Or maybe they don't notice. :freak:

 

Oh well, Maybe we'll see you around again sometime. :wave:

 

And Chris, welcome! :wave:
