Saw the username listed as guest in an old post. I guess he deleted and re-registered at some point.

Last I heard, the mods were monitoring his every post after some (particularly) xenophobic comments. I guess he deleted his account somewhere along the way.

Thanks for asking about me. Indeed, I was away for a spell, was shocked to hear what happened to Karl meanwhile.

Had a stroke two weeks ago. Go to Henning's Headquarters thread for details.

Hopefully he’ll be back soon. I miss him too. He is a genuine, truthful fellow.

You must've seen a post from my old account (under the same name), which was active 5 or so years ago and which I deleted. I'm still here.  :)

Mirror Image wrote to me today, and said he hopes to return: he is listening to Jazz at the moment.

I was recalling two members from long ago: who recalls PINK HARP ?   :D

For those who do not, he or she was absolutely obsessed by Debussy's opera Pelleas et Melisande, and most of the time made comments which invariably led to mentioning how wonderful that particular work was!

Another was S A U L who was similarly obsessed by THE WORLD'S GREATEST COMPOSER...

Mendelssohn!  Music, in his august opinion, which, in his august opinion, was always correct, had not progressed beyond Mendelssohn, and so he pooh-poohed most composers post-1850...

Except for  S A U L himself, who composed some rather simplistic pieces, possibly with the help of "YOU CAN BE A COMPOSER" computer program.   Maybe he has improved since then: ten years or so have gone by, maybe more!  He was from Georgia (the one in Europe) and undoubtedly meant very well.  I do not recall his last name: it resembled Stalin's real name (Dzugashvili) but was different!  0:)

Anyway, both left the forum for various reasons.  S A U L   (I think) felt his works were not properly appreciated here.

Oh yes, Pink Harp and the one and only Saul Dzorelashvili, who had actually two obsessions: Mendelssohn as the greatest composer and Jews as the greatest people.  :laugh:
