The Diner / Re: The Snyprrr Appreciation Thread.
« Last post by Mandryka on Today at 07:39:40 AM »


It's a balancing act, which doesn't always work out neatly. But I would like to think that, as people go, the four of us have common sense -- which to be sure, can also fail now and then.





Who are the four, by the way? You, Gurn Blanston, Que and who?

Ah it looks as though many people are saying similar things at the same time!

Anyway, let’s hope that the knife hasn’t been stuck in unfairly.

I certainly do, but as far as I can remember snyprrr did not "fuck" any member, on the contrary, it's he who's been a constant target of derision and abuse. I might be wrong, though.

Yes. This sounds right. But maybe I’m wrong.

That's true, you might be wrong. :-\

Regarding the Cello sonata, I find it a bit dry. I suppose I need to appreciate it better.

I'll admit to never having understood what commenters mean when they call a given work "dry" or (in this case) "a bit dry".  (BTW, why do reviewers conversely never refer to a piece as "wet" or "moist" or even "fluid", - though sometimes "florid" or "flowing")?  Just what IS the standard antithesis of "dry" in musical commentary?


Can anyone elaborate?

I got a bunch from Sweden through eBay at a good price, about 17 cents a blade. Locally I saw them at $1.50 a blade!!

Yeah, I'll go for ebay as well if local store that used to carry them doesn't re-stock.
