A short review of some individuals on this forums. YES YOU TOO!
« on: October 08, 2013, 06:34:34 AM »
Well I feel inspired so I decided to review some of the people I have come to cross paths on this forum and how I see them in my mind's eye, if we have talked you're most likely here. A ForumDex if you will hehehe.

j_menz



Where to start...I *** respect this guy. The the freaking green power ranger badass but too intelligent to be the red power ranger. (Yes I'm taling 'bout freaking power rangers here Mighty Morphing if it brings some dignity)  Also he appears to have a freaking massive stash of weed pictures for every occasion. Like the wizard no matter what he remains unfazed.

Somewhere, someday...

"Foolish cretins, you all run in fear while I, J_MENZ, stay and fight like a true warrior!" j_menz stood firm, his twin giant hammers held high as the thousand of eyes rapidly closed in. "Do not hold back else you will fall without a struggle!"

Final thoughts: I am bothered at the very fact people exist, but you’re the exception.

Describing this specimen could take tomes and volumes of literature. To measure Rach4ever is like measuring the universe. To do so, the only unit of measure you can use is the thing itself which you are measuring. You can only say that the universe is one universe long, one universe wide, its exact value being one universe. The same principle holds for this crazy pregnant cat good man.

Somewhere, someday..

"I, R4E, can be the only god here!" R4E held his piano sword high, posing dramatically. "You must not believe you are one who is above the mighty R4E for that is blasphemy! You wish to be blasphemous against the Church of Rachleal? Then you shall suffer the consequences!"

The room was completely silent after his small tirade. "R4E, what did you just say?" Bob asked the arrogant pianist slash skater.

Perfect_pitch followed up with a, "Seconded. What the *** did any of that mean?"
"My circuit board is sizzling just trying to comprehend it," Dima reported. "Initiating contingency script. Opening to lower intelligence and cool circuitry."

"It means I AM R4E!"

Mental Image:



Bob



He's not from this world. He's from a different place. A place where people don't write bad books like Twilight or fanfiction about them, where there is no perfection. It's a little harder. Not too much, don't worry. He can turn anyone if he want. It just takes a little more work with some.

I cowered back, eyes fogging with someone unseen's breath...


Bob, Bob, Bob..for someone with such a simple name he is everything but. Ye old reliable, quick with a fact or to light up your smoke. A true gentlemen is I ever saw one (I haven't)
His wisest words to me where, twofold. To begin, when on the site of a ceremony that exists to summon a hellish abomination, it is best to avoid the spilling of fluids that are vital to the completion of said ceremony. The next step to securing survival is to avoid the raising of items which would are palpably known for their conduction of electrical energy during a squall of such.

"Humans are vapid insipid stupid creatures," I muttered.

So once you've finished sobbing, do a little work and build yourself a bridge. Then stand on top of it…"
"…and enjoy the view from the highest point of sanity you're ever likely to reach."


*Sigh* Emill what can I say the guy is full of wisdom, rainbows and rumor has it candies.

Last time we saw...He paused to look back intently at me. "By the way, you shouldn't discredit something of your personal knowledge solely on the grounds of the inability to convince others to believe you. There's always a chance that you may be right, nevertheless: at least seven percent. Also if our beliefs depended solely on seeing concrete objects, I don't suppose we would have religion or regard oxygen and gravity as legitimate elements of science"

Mmmm he may have said that or not those memories are fussy.

Okay, vanity. Sorry. Yeah. Can't help it. Used to be a poster boy, when I was a kid, living in the ________ _________. Tiny little place. I was the first one ever to be signed up for the _____ ________. They were so proud of me. The Face of Bob, they called me. Hm. I'll see you.



Not so far off though, except I'm wearing a shirt.  And pants.  And socks.  And I don't have the fake movie actor face.  Otherwise, close.

I am disappointed to hear this. Must be something in my intonation, but I don't know what to do about that. Showing that others are even more stupid than I am myself was never my goal. I have two purposes only for posting here:
1) practising my English
2) showing different (and if possible unexpected) aspects, angles of looking at a topic.

Dima, you don't need to worry about that. You never gave any impression of wanting to show off. And I don't think the poster was even implying it, the humour can get lost sometimes.

When I was a teenager I tried to grow my hair like that, my mother would have no part of it ! My parents let me have a car though. I believe that was worse for me. They should have gone the hair route I think.
Depressing the pedal on an out of tune acoustic piano and playing does not result in tonal color control or add interest, it's called obnoxious.

If you're not on this thread it is because I don't know you as well XD

By all means show other what you think of em (within a semi reasonable appropriate level)

*Two and half hours later Bob returns after viewing memes...*



He's doing it again...





I thought having your picture taken back then was a huge deal.  Expensive.  Once-in-a-lifetime event.  You had to hold the pose for a while the picture set -- hard to do if you have a to smile the same for a few minutes -- and I heard the idea that people wanted to look serious for posterity.  If you smile, you could end up looking like an idiot in the only picture you'll ever have taken.

I bet Liszt thinks he's looking up at God or something.  Devine inspiration.


Or "eyes of pride."  That could be a good stance for marching band.  "Look to the horizon!"  "Eyes of pride!"

Or given that he, at this point in his life, was juggling more drinking, womanising, concertising, teaching and composing than anyone else who's ever lived, maybe he just had a bit of a headache.

I realize that what I said came out wrong. If a person reminds you of someone, gender means little. I posted the female wording because I thought that you might take offence if I posted an image of a male composer, but then again, there is no such thing as monogender classical music.

In regards to that, I would picture Scarlatti still as you. I mean, the music is just very 'you' like.

Anyways: sadly I don't play 2 instruments anymore. I think I would seriously kill myself if I did that on top of the things that I already do which still pressure me.

Now if only the stupid thrill in the prelude n3 would work along with me, darnit.

And as David once said (I might be wrong, but I'm fairly sure that you said this David); no haste in the piano. I'm going to take my sweet practice time to learn to play several techniques and pieces, not dozens of pieces half-assed/played to such an extent that piano becomes not fun to me anymore.

Could be something I said along the way, I was warning you to hold back a bit I know..  You were hitting burn out in a year or 18 months and music is a lifetime venture . You will carry on more cautiously now.

Meanwhile, that little girl in the yellow reminds me of my Grand Daughter a few years ago. Cutie with long dark hair and all kinds of spunk in her personality. Now 13 driving her parents nuts, I might add !! Though if you ask her they are driving her nuts.

You should know me well enough by now to not think I would be offended   ::)

And really, there is a resemblance...maybe he is my ancestor  ;)



Anyways: sadly I don't play 2 instruments anymore. I think I would seriously kill myself if I did that on top of the things that I already do which still pressure me.

Even if I can't really see you in a yellow dress, I think the picture shows the same kind of enthusiasm and drive that you have for music and the instruments. So maybe one day...




Now if only the stupid thrill in the prelude n3 would work along with me, darnit.

Patience. I have worked on a piece with some difficult trills on and off since May, but I am slowly making progress...Finding a balance on not trying too hard but hard enough and the right hand positions has been a challenge, especially on an upright.
