O Ethan! Where Art Thou?

Postby OperaTenor » Thu Jul 10, 2003 10:40 am

Ethan (aka EJA) has been away for too long. ;) It can't still be hay season, can it? Just wondering.... :confused:

No, hay season -- the first cutting, at least -- is long over. I've just been pondering the significance of my 1000th post (This will be my 1001st, I believe), noting the dramatically different character of this board from what it was when I joined (I am the 47th member), and wondering whether I want to continue to participate in it. I think I will.

Did you guys ever hear of something called classical music?

I've also been pressed for time to post, being busy with a variety of things, and I don't expect that to change for some time, so my posts will be few and far-between.

OT, thanks for your concern. (Of course the pun was intended.)

Thanks. Glad to hear you're leaning towards continued participation. The board isn't nearly as interesting without you (that goes for a number of others out there as well).

I know what you mean about the character of the board(perhaps I'm a perpetrator of that in part). However, I feel it's what we make of it. There are some people out there who used to post frequently who I don't see much of anymore, and it makes me wonder why. I miss their contributions, as I learn a lot from what they have to say.

Ethan has the right idea about getting back to classical music (and I didn't put him up to it). It's nice to have something about US, but the main thrust should be about the composers and their music.

Having said that, I've been listening to some music of Arthur Bliss (the subject of a past biography). The Colour Symphony is well worth having. Suites from Checkmate and Adam Zero are good, too. My top recommendation, though is music from Things to Come.

And it's good to hear from you again, Ethan.

Ethan,

Perhaps we should impose upon our hosts to re-arrange the bulletin board to put the non-music related topics out of the "Musical Notes" section.

I don't consider myself knowledgable enough about classical music to join in the discussions in an intellegent manner, so I just read the posts to learn. I do join in many of the other discussions, not that I'm particularly knowledgable about them either, I just don't feel quite so out of place.

I listen to B.com daily, and enjoy the music, but I don't know much about the composers or the composition. I just know what I like.

I agree. I think I was one of the earliest perpetrators of this movement towards more fun (and nonsense and telling about oursleves), less music. I still think it's nice to have fun and tell about ourselves but we've been having a real shortage of music related subjects. (we can have fun with them too).

There's a classical music connection to this? Wait...is that what the "listen.." button is on the first page? It's a radio station??? WOW!! Who's this Beethoven guy then? Does he own the station?

A little more classical music talk might be enjoyable. But I also like the fact that this is one of the boards in which you don't have to be ALWAYS adhered very STRICTLY to the topic. (I've been on some where they delete your posts when your not OT (O=on :D :p )

What we REALLY need is a way to have parallel threads, where reactions to the topic leading it off topic get kinda split to their own thread(s?), and the original thread continues undisturbed. Unfortunately, UBB is probably not capable of such things, and B.com probably isn't concerned enough about the issue to want to spend $$ on this issue, certainly not including converting the archives to the new format... Now... Might it be something that us geeks could contribute to? Is UBB an Open Source project?

-Benito

p.s. This is a solution to the problem brought up by the thread, is that a hijacking!?
If only I could fly on my own wings.

I'm still a subscriber to:

If someone is so concerned about the hijacking of a thread, how about being a good little rudder and steer it back onto course by posting?
