Time & Music  

I note that the Great Music Party Debate has once again broken out in the open. Interesting. Were I not a Bear of Very Little Brain with much overtime still to be worked this month, I might try to toss my tuppence into the hat. As it stands, however, I'll probably have to go back just to follow all of the public discussion undertaken by you brave souls, much less say boo about it. On the other hand, this might actually be a Good Thing.

I always love hearing your tuppence. And I'm saving them up so I can buy a steak and kidney pie. :-)

Thanks. Will try to find time after the work peak lets up. Just saw your thoughts, want to peruse them. Gotta run!

Sorry to have woken the sleeping giant. I should have known that no one actually ever persuades anyone of anything. So the people who agree with me still agree with me, and the people who don't, still don't.

Yeah but we still like the hat you...

Anyone for pie?

I think I agree with you more than you think I agree with you.

More later.
I think.

You hurt my brain sir! You've changed my mind on things before.

Oh heavens, no—don't be sorry! I believe it's good to talk about the elephant in the living room every now and then. It lets the intelligent newcomer know that, yes, we do know there's an elephant in the room and that while talking about it may occasionally be costly it isn't taboo. It lets the blind know that there is an elephant in the room. It lets the ignorant among the peasants dust off their pitchforks and torches and have a rousing, community-building night on the town. Oh my yes—all sorts of good and important stuff.

As a sort of aside, I enjoy the heck out of my job, so I don't really regret that, for example, I put in a 13-hour day yesterday and will be heading back to work in a few minutes, but I seriously do wish I could find the time & energy to add to the current discussion of music party etiquette. Although, come to think of it, the discussion has been running, to my knowledge, for, oh, 30 or 40 years now, so I guess there'll be time and space for my thoughts next month if I can find the wherewithal to pull them together.

I'd love to know your thoughts on the subject, someday. I've never been to a music party where I've thought (doesn't mean I was right) you were having a good time that I, also, wasn't having a good time.

What I really enjoy about the elephant is that it just sort of...is. And my pitchfork wasn't dusty. I kept it stored in mylar in a cool, dry room.

The very fact that your pitchfork gathers no dust proves that you, sir, are no peasant. Nor are you a pheasant. Although you are frequently pleasant. And a good day to you.
