I take it that it's a coincidence you used that word.....there's another thread where we're having a pretty good whoop-de-doo about "jealous."
And if you don't know about that, you don't want to either. ha

envious is the correct word now that you mention it.

...and I'll take your word on the other thread and remain blissfully innocent, pun intended.

I always have to think for a moment before I use either word, to make sure I'm using the right one.
And I probably don't anyway. smile

Well, if you are Ragtime Clown, you'll probably get banned. RC was given a break the last time one of his false identities was revealed. Just sayin'. smile

I never heard of this other guy and I have no idea why he's being mentioned.

Actually I feel a little silly because y'all are probably just having fun, and here I am getting all worried.... smile

Ragtime has had something like 7 or 8 different identities, so I don't blame people for being a little suspicious. smile

I think I counted 9 finally. But it would be easy to be mistaken smile

I think I only knew 4 of them for sure before the final debacle, but then he 'fessed up to a couple more, and someone else called him on another one or two, and then there was one last one that, believe it or not, I knew from "who's on-line" before he posted at all laugh

It was sort of a brouhaha -

Cathy

I know this has nothing to do with the original post (but I'm not exactly the first off-topic one here), but I did look up Mark's video that he referenced, and I'm impressed. wow

I've read that it takes 7 times as much effort to "unlearn" something that you learned incorrectly, that is actually a good thing if you learn correctly the first time.

Mark, I watched your video and pretty much read all your posts. I find you quite entertaining and it seems that since you came onboard the forums have never stop moving right along at a nice clip. BTW - You look like Picard to me ( very cool ). You really do seem to stir up emotions and thoughts that encourage members to post more than usual. I think we have seen a lot of very good exchanges as a result and maybe some folks allowed more of themselves than intended. Levelheaded counterpoints were appreciated by me anyway, even learned a few things Thanks and keep posting.
Richard

sotto voce,

You have some nerve calling me a fool!
At what point did I lower myself to namecalling?
Because you quote in French?
Nice.

I don't think I implied I admire Mark Cannon, I simply said I thought he was entertaining.
That does not call for your insulting remark.
Richard

KeyboardKlutz,
The "usual" areas I would like to place myself here is to say that I think you, and sotto voce are terrific pianists. If I were to "admire" someone it would be someone who has demonstrated a great talent as you both have, as Mark has. I have listened to some of your postings and I can only hope that in a few years from now that I can play nearly as well as both of you do, usually, and be a surprise.
Richard
