Flashmeister Show Of Hands - over the top?-Arrogance, Ignorance (341* d) RE: Show Of Hands - over the top?-Arrogance, Ignorance 09 Feb 10


Lizzie - it seems there is a small smattering of savagery that I detect in your statement :

'And as far as Flashmeister is concerned, don't worry, sunshine, I won't ever write about your music.'

Lizzie you have never, ever seen me play nor heard any of my music, nor attended any of my sessions so you simply cannot make a snap judgement on my music or indeed me - I appear to have survived thus far without you writing about my music and shall go forth for some time to come blithely going about my business without suffering for your lack of writing about my music. Is it because Ralphie expressed a fleeting interest in me that I am now a 'baddie'?
Listen to your own mantra and don't judge me in ignorance please.

A sign of how ridiculous this whole thing has become...
At the session I attended last night this very sentiment came up when i mentioned the madness on this thread to friends who are aware of your omnipresence on here. After a chap did Country Life acoustically (and well) someone piped up and said 'dare you post that in your report of the evening for fear of Lizzie Cornish!'to a smattering of chuckles.
Now that to me is not good if people know you outside of the boards for being reactionary, argumentative and generally quite intimidating on here.
Who knows what you hope to achieve though if anything through your rants and pontificating you have achieved a certain noteriety amongst even us folks in the 'real world' (to be found to the right and left of your computer screen and much worn keyboard)and frankly if you were so passionate about the music you'd be getting out there, getting involved, attending sessions, patronising folk clubs and basically being too busy to spout your endless views on here two, three, four, five times a day and more.

I appreciate throughly that you found something you loved in the music of SoH and that is great and I hope it has led you to more artists you have discovered and a wider appreciation of the folk scene, gawd knows us little folk/acoustic artists appreciate people stopping and listening instead of talking over us and pub crowds heckling for 'play something we know'.

What is blindingly obvious is no-one appreciates the hijacking of threads and the ensuing brouhaha that tediously follows.
I am not attacking you here I am trying to explain that snipey little comments like the one you wrote in regards to me and my music just fuel the fire, sour things further and are utterly unecessary.

Apologies for the long post everyone but I work damn hard on my music and when it is dismissed out of hand like that by someone who hasn't even heard it just to make a swipe at me it gets my back up.

right I'm off to play ukulele - it is impossible to be gloomy on a uke! :-P
