Not to mention eye-rollingly narcissistic.

Even more so me thinks. :)

Narcissism is the opiate of the masses.
… music is not only an `entertainment’, nor a mere luxury, but a necessity of the spiritual if not of the physical life, an opening of those magic casements through which we can catch a glimpse of that country where ultimate reality will be found.    RVW, 1948

A good narcissist knows the real trick is to log off quietly, wait a while, and see who posts in "Missing Members" about you  ;)

Where's Mirror Image? I've just checked and he hasn't bought any music for the past 48 hours. ??? I do hope he's okay.  >:(
He logs onto GMG regularly.  He changed his avatar recently.  Judging from his listening to list he is having a binge of non-classical music

Yeah, MI doesn't plan on coming back but last I spoke, he seemed to be doing well  :)

Why does he not want to come back? Did something bad go down? Anyway, I hope that's not true.

Yeah, I hope so too. It's not like he hasn't fell off the grid before.
