Dear Uncle Jaqueoff,

You state, ""Dreamer" has to be sung with a certain tender grace and delicacy, yet with clarity - with attention properly paid to vocal ennunciation and articulation, as Singers were trained to do back then before the advent of electronic amplification.

When we do this in the 21st Century, most listeners who have been brought up on electronified rock-&-roll, heavy metal, rap and the like will despise it, and describe it most contemptuously as being "Operetic".

Such sophisticated, modern ears are more than welcome to patronize their choice of high-intensity and decibel rock-concerts and raves to their heart's content; I shall not miss them a whit from the audiences of my performances."


Please take that load of crap and shove it up your ass. None of that malarkey even remotely applies to me. I find many songs from the era especially wonderful and yes, I know many of them myself. Equally, I'm a fan of of Stephen Foster as well. However, this particular piece has always just grated me the wrong way. So does one of my state's songs, "Beautiful Ohio." Maybe I hate the word beautiful. Let's not get into who has what taste huh?   I will admit that your song here also works well in a certain Bugs Bunny cartoon.

Spaw

That's all very nice, 'Spaw49 - but you needn't flatter me so;
really.

That nom de plume by which you salute your humble correspondant has been used before, and often at that - although it's been a while. Perhaps it was your original creation back 3 or 4 years ago when we used to go at it in grand style over our alternative political perspectives. Aah; those were the days, weren't they?

Shucks; I have not been the target of such a scatological scorching here on the 'Cat in quite some time; I didn't even get that much of a rise out of my cutting loose on a recent abortion glorification thread. At least not for the following 4 or 5 posts - I havn't been back to check since. Some were predictably indignant with me, but were commendably civil about it.

And as to your suggested proctological excersizes, may I respectfully suggest that you confine such practices to between yourself and your beloved pet oppossum, who is by now, I expect, well accustomed to the procedure, and for all I know may even enjoy it.

Regarding matters of "taste" or "class"; neither I nor anyone else here needs to elaborate or expand upon your most colorfully articulated public revelation of about where you settle out in that developmental pond.

As you probably know, I have been known to wax passionate at times, but think that it will be generally found by the most studious thread-chaser that at least here in the Mudcat Parlor I manage to do so without resort to such septic-tank vocabulary as we see flung about with such vitriolic abandon in this thread as of late.

The stark contrast in terms of intellectual competence, effective use of the language, scholarship and social maturity between postings no. 13 and 14 is no less than utterly astounding to me.

Unc, I'm sorry to hear that you are scatologically challenged as this can be a serious drawback for you. Obviously the term tight-ass has been used in the past when referencing you so I'll not do it again, although from a medical standpoint, this would help to explain the bad taste in your mouth. I'll now leave yourself and the others to discuss this stirring tune and it's possible usage....perhaps inspirationally to help you to gain an actual personality and a soupcon of intelligence so as not to make such patently ridiculous blanket statements as you are so often wont to do.

Why does an interesting discussion have to be spoilt by idiots who cannot resist bringing in distasteful comments and showing themselves up for the scumbags they are. Uncle Jacque you deserve an apology.

This proves to me that I shouldn't have returned to Mudcat, there are plenty of other decent sources of musical information available.

Aw, dang. Now you done it, Spaw. You pierced some pomposity and it splattered all over that puir disappointed Guest, and now look!

As for scumbags, dear Disappointed, a review of definitions is certainly in order. Your use of the term is severely off-target; if you tremble at the use of vile opprobrium, such as "tightass", if strong language makes you cringe, it may be best for you to seek more pastoral retreats, where the gentle hand of Nature nurtures all, and nothing there is to be found more vile than a sweet and natural cow-flop by a babbling stream, feeding the daisies.

Well, I was going to offer the chords I use for "BD", but I don't suppose that anyone is interested in that sort of thing... not any more, anyway.

Having worked in a State Institution for the Developmentally Disabled (formerly known as "Mentally Retarded") for about 12 1/2 years, I am no stranger to the sort of literal environment that seems to be figuratively developing here - but that is not to imply that I have ever come to enjoy it.

So "ta-ta", "Gentlemen"; we are off to the light of another campfire.
