Anonny Mouse BS: No Offense Meant, But... (107* d) RE: BS: No Offense Meant, But... 09 May 06

Amos:" I await Anonnymouse's dissertation in response to my questions about his feelings regarding the word "fuck", which was th eoriginal topic."

No dissertation Amos. Guess it just goes back to how I was raised...and all that childhood/adolescent stuff. My Dad (and we're not puritans, or religious fanatics or whatever) was just really strict about such-which of course goes right to Lenny Bruce's (or George Carlin's) truth about the suppression of a word, or idea, or whatever giving it power.

Carol C--if you're really interested in my mundane little world, here's a bit y'all can ignore or not. I AM an amateur musician; play a bit of piano, but my main instrument is guitar, 6 or 12...and a bit of 5-string banjo. Like many of you, grew up in the great Folk Scare--Kingston Trio, PP&M, Limeliters, etc. Had "groups" (trios or quartets) in High School, College and Grad School. 6 years of voice; a lot of a'cappella choral background. Pretty diverse tastes musically-don't consider myself a folk music snob, and know a lot less about it than most of you, which is what attracted me to Mudcat in the first place. I'm not going to get into my vocational aspects, but I do a good deal of writing--professionally (although I am only published in a very few arcane publications; nothing any of you would have seen or read).

As for "dissertations" (re: Amos) yes, you can see I can be verbose. I have great respect for the written and spoken word, hence my somewhat "puritanical" attitude to vulgarity. It isn't that I am not vulgar myself on occasion...but I prefer it not infiltrate my writing (even on an informal forum). So, if I haven't bored you all to tears, that's a snippet of my background. Grew up in the northeast; lived in Pennsylvania, Maryland, and upstate New York. Wish I could say I play like Tommy Emmanuel, Phil Keaggy, Leo Kottke or Doyle Dykes--but, alas, I DON'T. I think that's it for now.
