Greeting From New York
« on: April 09, 2019, 04:59:07 PM »
Hi folks! I just joined, but I'm also a member of TC, and a couple other forums. I like all kinds of classical music as well as jazz. etc...

I see several TC defectors here, which is cool. I didn't know if some had quit, died, or what?

Welcome. I was an on and off contributor to TC for a while. Got fatigued with rants against modern music.

I don't know what 'TC' is (Top Cat - a favourite TV programme of my childhood?) but welcome to the forum.

Ah, now I see where you’re from. ;) Welcome aboard and I hope you enjoy your time here. By the way, did you have a Varèse avatar on one of the other forums?

He’s also on the Steve Hoffman forum. I’ve seen him hang around there.

Welcome aboard!
The man that hath no music in himself,
Nor is not moved with concord of sweet sounds,
Is fit for treasons, stratagems, and spoils.
The motions of his spirit are dull as night,
And his affections dark as Erebus.
Let no such man be trusted.

-- William Shakespeare, The Merchant of Venice
