Please help me come up with options! What's your favorite thing that happens on the PianoStreet forums regularly that's kind of a meme/weird?
I am trying to become Franz Liszt. Trying. And failing.

This quote: "Mozart is the hardest, because it requires perfect."

Someone asking for repertoire suggestions for a probably-fictitious performance (guilty of this in my youth :-[)

Derek, j_menz or pies being an unwanted, cold, wet fart in your thread

Addendum
I'm too lazy to develop my piano literature awareness by reading,  listening, and exploring composers and their works. Please "pick" my next piece with little information to go on other than the name of pieces I either play well, badly, can not play at all but think I can or should, or piece i would like to play-off I'm not telling Please also provide a detailed biographical  summary for the composer,  a musicology study abstract,  and a definitive numerical difficulty rating that I agree with. Please attach a score or link where I cans find said music. I cam use piano street to log in and post but don't know how to use Google, YouTube,  or ask a library employee for assistance. Please listen to and provide detailed review to my satisfaction of this computer performance of new agey dental office waiting area lobby music.  I love Chopin.

Interminable arguments about things of very little importance.

And amen re Chopin. This forum has genuinely lowered my opinion of him, and I'm sure it's due to the way he's fixated upon - it's almost as if he was the only important composer for piano. That bloody first ballade - I could happily never hear it again.

I don't care a cuss about his popularity or otherwise; I care only for his music.

The funny thing is that when I was 16 / 17 I played loads of Chopin.. including the first ballade. With a few exceptions I barely touch his music now - amazing how one's aesthetic preferences can change.


I miss the God Muslims Jews threads, for comedy value obviously.

...Me always stealing the win in the 'Last Post Wins' thread.

...Vlad telling us we're playing Schumann wrong...

...Louis posting his one and only video about how we're playing all Romantic music wrong and how our teachers were idiots for not knowing this?

Very old... Replies like "quite" as the only response in the post.

Or someone saying everything is epic.

What's the hardest piano piece ever?   The sonna-something-or-other.

Snails.   _@/

A thoughtful Bernhard reply

A list of links (to Bernhard posts) as a response.  None of the links work because of a previous forum software change.

Someone posting recordings of themselves sight reading and getting reemed by comments.

A few sock puppet accounts one of which has TB.
Favorite new teacher quote -- "You found the only possible wrong answer."
