MandolinPaul Nothing Worth Opening Here Lately (113* d) RE: Nothing Worth Opening Here Lately 14 Nov 99


While I also don't read or contribute to many of the BS threads, I think they do have a place. We meet to discuss music, and sometimes we touch on other subjects. If I had never started any BS, I never would have found the inspiration to write my cult classic The Ballad of Wandering Christie, which came about with Bert's suggestion that my BS would make a good song.

Reading back over this, I feel kind of silly. Basically, what I was trying to state in my first posting was what Aine editted to the much more succinct (and tactful): Is it not better to light a candle than to curse the darkness? Things ended up a little out of proportion.

PS: I think that we have now thoroughly pounded the piss out of the party analogy. I'll be over at the punchbowl.
