I know, our former (excluding Gyro, of course) resident troll is well on his way to being the current resident laughingstock.

Don't you love that simultaneously high and mighty yet pathetic and thoroughly wrong defense of "contend"?

You can't make this stuff up.

Steven
I guess my point did not come across. Let me be crystal clear:

the word contend has a number of different usages...
... one usage of the word contend is the way you though I meant it, "to engage in a competition or campaign in order to win or achieve".

However, this is not how i meant it.

The usage I was reffering to can be found in ANY dictionary under the word in question(content):

and i quote "to assert something as a position in an argument"

ex: "he contends that the judge was wrong"

here's the sentence I used:


"In addition I can't imagine you could find a single person on this board whom would contend that jazz, as a medium, uses the most vulgar of human impulses as a foundation...."

I hope it is all clear for you now sotto, you seem a bit confused on this matter even after my initial attempt to clear it up for you.

The most vulgar of human impulses? Obviously -- to seek pleasure!

Jazz is very pleasurable, as is most good music!

Given that the intent is to anger and harass, it really might burst his bubble when he can no longer elicit that reaction.

He's already a laughworthy parody of himself. How long before we all become inured to the pestilence altogether?

Hey, I'm feeling a vulgar human impulse coming on right now. I guess all this talk of jazz got me all worked up and flustered!

PPM, I'm so sorry you're disappointed that I'm not an elderly female. But if you'll confirm that you're a young male—and at least four years older than your screen name suggests—well, I'm wondering what you look like at least.

So what are your stats? They say opposites attract, and surely that applies to the intelligence spectrum as well as age. Besides, I like 'em young and stupid. So what do you say?

And to think that Gyro was already sweet on him. The two outcasts might have been friends—maybe even more:

http://www.pianoworld.com/ubb/cgi-bin/ultimatebb.cgi?/topic/2/19668/2.html#000049

Well, who am I to complain? Gyro's loss might be my gain, after all!

Listen to this:

The question is: Jazz? Or a salad of notes, acting as a cancerous growth on the very fiber of classical music?
