Isn't that eyeresist aka criticalI? Y'all are like peas in a pod, now that you mention it.

Nope. I think Sid said many months, probably a year, ago that he was taking a long break or something like that. He was a relatively new listener of CM and his posts on the listening thread were almost always filled with descriptions of his first explorations of various works.

Oh, yeah, that's right ... I remember now. He was gracious and open-minded and interested in learning and sharing his joy of discovery.  I did a quick search and turned up this typical example: http://www.good-music-guide.com/community/index.php/topic,429.msg521910.html#msg521910

Speaking of missing members, it would be nice to see him back!

No, someone else altogether. I enjoyed his posts. As I recall, he used to host some listening parties and report back on reactions of the group to different music, which I thought was interesting. So it goes... :-\

There've been quite a few posters of worth who posted like crazy in a short amount of time and disappeared — I can only hope they found something better to do that takes all their time. :)

Yes, it would be be great to see him around here again. By the way, me and Critical1 (eyeresist) peas in a pod? We do generally seem to along with each other.

Metropolis Greg will always be Monkey Greg to me.

Mahler, you ought to go see it.
he was as f*cked-up as you are."

Call him Tom, Dick, or Harry;
Call him Monkey, call him Metro;
Call him Sally, call him Larry;
Call him Lee, call him Jethro;
Call him saint, or call him sinner:
Just don't call him late for dinner.




(as you can see,  Sarge is not the only one who can write lousy poetry around here.)

Dear Hans Rott
In the 1980s there was a creative punk group called "Big Audio Dynamite".  I have decided to apply the term to you, my man.  And I still haven't properly finished your Screenplay yet.  Too bad.  Take care anyway old chum, I'm off to listen to Brahms!
Kind regards, John

Didn't he become a moderator? Perhaps the same thing happened to him that happened to you when you were a mod. ;)

Maybe ::). Being a mod is not something I enjoyed. A chore and a pain the butt, but also quite stressful at times :P.
