No offence taken, It is not your fault that you typoed "semi likable" instead of "totally likeable chap" and "occasionally funny" instead of "immensely amusing to the point of incontinence"

You may have been distracted by jazz at the time of posting.

I was just thinking, to me Jazz is the only thing worse than the sound of a nagging women, and most men have the ability to detune their ears to the sound of a nagging women so we dont actually hear it anymore,

we learn to say things at the end of the nag like " oh yes how correct" or " Indeed" or "Okay, I will get onto it first thing in the morning"

If asked, even for lots of money we cannot repeat any of the nag, because we were not listening.

Some men lock their women up in the cellar and beat them to stop the nagging.

This does not work for jazz musicians, they will still carry on playing and improvising, and seem to thrive in dark places.

In order to enjoy Jazz you must be one of the [un]fortunate few who are anointed by a very rare type of cosmic ray. This rare cosmic ray contains stable particles of antimatter that manages to penetrate the earth's atmosphere intact. It typically aims straight for the atomic bull's eye on a victims forehead. Most of this jassy antimatter slices right through the cortex without any evidence of its visit. However, should that one rare event occur that disrupts a certain synapse in the auditory cortex the victim will become smitten with dissonance and will aimlessly and helplessly search for a stable chord for the remainder of his life.

None the worse for wear, victims will claim superior musicianship [Allegedly as a result of relentless hours spent developing and repeatedly playing obscure scales in a syncopated beat.] and befriend fellow victims in the dark recesses of shady nightclubs. There is no known cure. Probably because none has been sought.

Sometimes they can be quite the spectacle!

For those that cannot be bothered to follow a link , this is what Tribbs just posted.



What new shade of H E L L is this?

No, dont answer that, because what I will hear is this: (remember the sound of a girl nagging)

"Blah Blah Blah, technical merit, blah blah blah blahety blah blah, improvised procrastination, blah chord structure lead sheet blah blah blahety, long windy explanation of worth, blah blah structural integrity.... blah blah extremely awkward dominant 7th + 13th augmented 5th/Eb variation upon a nice sounding chord. blah blah infinitum."

And it still sounds like total shite to me.


In fact , after listening to that, I actually said "dont worry, I promise I will fix the hoover first thing in the morning"

That video's great - the thing that struck me more than anything is that from the expressions on their faces and their body language, all three of those people appear to be in some considerable pain. I thought that the first cut to the guy with the six string bass was a great comedy moment - perfect timing.

I'm always wary when there are more than four strings on a bass. Just get a guitar already if you want to play solos.

The expressions on their faces were nothing compared to the expression on both my dogs face and my own face, we were in so much terrible pain also, fortunately , only for a fraction of the time that the performers were in pain for.

This was because the performers played for a much longer length of time than either myself or the dog could listen to.

we managed 14.7 seconds.

I just watched a bit more of that video. I'm sure that's Eric Idle on the drums. Maybe if you watch to the end they break into 'Always look on the bright side of life'.

You aint going to catch old Rossy that easy.

Thats allmost like saying "just give me the cash and i will go and get it for you" I have been around for longer than that.

Absolutely no chance whatsoever of me watching any more of that upsetting and spleen bursting noise ever again.

If anyone knows what a spleens purpose is, do let me know, I dont know what it does, am to lazy to google it and the only thing I can safely say is that jazz is detrimental to ones spleen/car/paraboots/dog/position in society/rectal elasticity.

For someone who purports to hate jazz, you sure spend ALOT of time talking about it. You must have a secret crush or something. Why are you wasting so much time writing, shouldn't you be practicing or playing. almost 3000 posts, geez, what a waste.

You might want to get a proper piano stand. You just about killed your digital!! haha. Learn this word, dynamics.

I reckon even the lowest graded jazz players at juco could outplay you with their left hand.

Oh no... Rossy...have you fallen off the wagon again? Quick! Somebody check the basset hound for over medication! smile

Seriously... Music is an expression of the heart. Then with some it becomes a match with their nervous system. Also shows their heart. Same way with some jazz.
Now I find this jazz just plain hot....

Words reveal the character and heart behind a person's intentions. For this guy to start a thread and write all this vitriol about jazz shows a deep angst. I doubt very much it is only jazz that gnaws at him, perhaps some childhood trauma or family issue has affected him and his only recourse is to lash out at jazz. It's pretty funny from my point of view.

A true musician never denigrates the art form. There are many musical styles I like and some I don't like. I don't go off pontificating on those which don't appeal to me. Why waste time on that when I could be listening and playing music I enjoy.

Professional or amateur, I highly doubt he's taken serious time to study, learn, teach, perform and share music with integrity. I personally would not trust or hire him for any of the above.

Dude, you then went on to write another four posts without anybody else posting inbetween, This is exactly what jazz musicians do, they go on and on and on without anyone else getting a chance...

They too like the sound of their own solitary voices.

Dude, you couldnt afford to. (And dont try offering me Euros again)

hey dude, take a look in the mirror. most of your single posts here are longer than my 4 posts combined!

Learn this word: brevity

You really have no clue about jazz, most players play in groups not solo.

My last performance cheque could no doubt easily cover your pedantic fee, but why bother when I got 10 year old students who play better than you and for free?

I heard they're looking for buskers again at Picadilly Circus, best put in an audition while you can. You might get lucky with a quid or two.

Gentlemen, PLEASE! A little ribbing and teasing is fine, I've certainly done my share here...but let's cool it with the personal attacks, shall we? Not that I think Rossy needs any help from me, but scrolling through post after post of personal attacks in what was previously a funny and light-hearted thread is getting tiresome.

I don't know if you clicked these links or not, Rossy...but I presume you haven't if your spleen is still intact. I recommend keeping your distance if you value your semi-useless internal organs.

Hear hear! I'm new here, but it only took reading one of R's posts to realize that he's a music elitist wanker. I don't even love jazz, but having my eyes fall upon the pretentious verbal masturbation of R is a fate I would not wish upon my worst enemies!

You are absolutely correct, I did write a novel that nobody bought , the publishers said the problem was actually in the title though.

It was entitled, "wizeman,mentally abusing ten year old students with jazz related augmented 5th+13th's"

My next novel will have a better title, something like Piano joy suggested " Is disco brain dead or is it just unwise, man?"

I thought that a much cleverer title because you cant prove a negative.

Anyways, do not wait to put me on ignore, I Love being on folks ignore list, that way I get to see what they post , but they cannot see what I am posting, fantastic Idea.

So, if you hate jazz your an "elitist wanker?" excellent, much better than just being a common wanker I suppose.

allthough as I love every other genre of music apart from jazz I fail to see how that works.
(Bagpipes isnt music as I understand it)

Great to see you back Piano joy by the way, long time no hear.

Well, my arm's still too sore to play much, so guess I'll join in the discussion here.. I've tried two local jazz teachers over the years because I thought it might be fun and I do like some jazz, but they didn't last long. Both rolled their eyes at me right from the start and said my playing was too "cocktail style" and "you have to think like a jazz player, not cocktail player". I asked what do you mean, and he says my playing is too "flowery". I said "Well, what do you have against flowers"?! LOL That was the end of my lessons. I think maybe Chopin and Tchaikovsky were accused of the same thing? Just play what you love, IMO. The best teacher I ever had (about 25 years ago) combined classical, cocktail, jazz, etc, etc.

I agree. Like in music. The heart shows in what is said.
We got a couple "gentlemen" who have been here less than a month. They're posting destruction.

Who is the real troll?

Rossy always posts creativity. Causes us to think. Be amused. Entertains people with expanding their minds. I like him. Even though I like to rib him also. smile

EDIT: I've always said I love the mind of jazz. The creativity. Particular players are irrelevant to me.

I like to call that: Prozac music. High sugar diets. Energy drinks. Diet pills. Any of that will cure you. Will understand it perfectly. Will actually like it.
See Rossy? You just need to get your Doctor to change your prescription. But then, your Basset Hound will leave you.

I'm sure old Rosto can handle a few insults his way. With a title like that he knew full well he'd get the jazz guys all riled up. Time to take what you can dish. He's a man.

and no, his posts aren't creative or worthy of anything at all. what I don't get is for someone with so little musical skill why are you not practicing more? Get off the forums and get in the woodshed.
