"Sticks and stone may break my bones but words will never hurt me."

Loundry was a good read but if chooses to leave, he chooses to leave. IME, it's harder on the one leaving than the ones left behind.

MGR and his lover Condi have kept a low profile the last few years. I wonder if THE TERMINATOR EVER GOT THE ALL CAPS BUTTON FIXED ON HIS COMPUTER.

We lost Loundry off of our board yesterday and I hate it.   He was certainly a controversial poster, but he did have a way about experimentation and reviewing his experiments at home that makes him a favorite of mine.
Perhaps we will see him again some day, maybe not. ?
He didn't die, he just signed off of our board, btw..

Just damn.  I really appreciated the way he got you to *think* about his subject matter and not just go with the common flow.  I guess that kind of expression made him a lightening rod for some unnecessarily harsh rebuttals.  Unfortunate.
Unfortunately, a conclusion is usually the place where you got tired of thinking.

No, I don't think his detailed analysis and often very intelligent posts made him a lightening rod.  I think it was his style that aggravated (many) people, not his message.  Face it, some folks come here to relax and talk food and simply don't think every discussion needs to be a brawl where there MUST be a winner and there MUST be a loser.

And whoever is responsible should be lambasted publicly and sent to banned camp for ever.  Oops, wrong board.  ;-)

Yes it is unfortunate... I guess some think they are more 'high-falutin' than they really are. I'm sorry to see him go.

I could move this to it's own thread ?


what do you think ?

Finding offense where none is intended is a form of selfishness.

When facts change, I change my mind.  What do you do?

Musician and artist Don Van Vliet, who performed a complex brand of experimental rock under the name Captain Beefheart, died Friday. He was 69.

One of my early favorites.

Me, too!  Our friends of 35+ years, fiendish fans of the Captain all, have had a round robin e-mail going for several days now with lyrics and remembrances.  I heard DH playing Trout Mask Replica during his exercise routine.  Me, just singing all of the lyrics to songs from Clear Spot. . .
