    Subtle Toadying: The Indirect Compliment

    How do we stop people making comments that are not directly complimenting anyone but indirectly have a flattering implication for another forum member? Cryptic and ambiguous though it may be it can still be very nauseating.

    Did John Cage plan any additional movements for 4'33", such as a mellow andante at 32'18", an impudent Scherzo at 2'02", and a rousing, crowd-pleasing finale at 15'24"?

    What is "child's music"? I listened to Mozart, Bach, Schubert and Beethoven when I was 7. Now that I'm 47, I listen to Black Sabbath, Judas Priest and Napalm Death...They're all from Birmingham actually! Flip your wig

    Is there a world record for playing Tom Dooley? I think it's a good/stupid idea that as many guitarists as humanly possible play Tom Dooley for as long a time possible. F.ex. fill my city's town square with 8500 guitarists...day and night... A new era: Before and after Tom Dooley.

    I'd like to see the world record for pole sitting broken by a guy who at the same time is setting a world record for playing Tom Dooley.

    Are you sure you haven't taken the red pill instead of the blue one?

    Delius was born in Bradford, so yes, why not?

    Well he left when he was quite young but it was corroborated by Mussorgsky (who lived in the house opposite). Although, of course, Modest was a big fan of Worthington's White Shield.

    Indeed.

    "One pill makes you smaller and the other makes you believe that Tchaikovsky was born in Edgbaston."

    As Grace Slick so nearly sang.
