No aplogies from you are necessary Yuri. Franco is a mean little pissant and he's gone.
good riddance to his cruel nastiness.

Franco, may I leave you with this.....may God bless you and give you peace, I harbor no ill feelings towards you, what was done was done, and I wish you well. I would shake your hand but I can't reach Ottawa from here. Peace, bro!

(and Yuri, my friend, you have nothing to apologize about, I thank you for introducing my music to this warm group of music appreciators)

Thank you for your kind comments, and for recognizing the purpose of this track, to simply BE melodically hypnotizing.

Patti, thank you too, everyone on here seem so warm and kind-hearted. I hope I can stick around without it reminding everyone of the recent battling.

Charlene, thank you for that - the purpose of the video was simply to share the music.

Yuri, again I wish to thank you for introducing me to this wonderful group of music appreciators.

I regret that my being here has caused such trouble, but I realize it was not me instigating anything, I just felt I had to speak up, and that is now history, so I'd simply like to put it behind me and get to know some of you a little better.

I grew up listening to GL, I'm 55 and heard GL tunes on the radio quite a bit when I was a teen. The songs made a lasting impact on me.

One last comment, WOW, is it ever tricky to do multiple quotes in a message! LOL

yeah - how did yo do that John? 1st time I've ever seen someone post multiple quotes like that.

And you're welcome and thank you too. Sorry that Franco posted all those negative things. Hope you don't take any of that too personally. Hey - he called me an extremely gracious man (or something to that effect). Something I don't hear everyday (I'm a girl). So much for his assumptions, eh? (ooops! Can I say "eh" hehe).

I don't feel so bad, at least franco didn't call me the opposite gender! LOL

You use 'eh?' just like the best Canadian. . .. eh?

Criticisms about a piece of music are to be expected. Being told I am clearly not, this or that, and accused of making fake claims of credentials is quite another thing. It was actually a good lesson for me to learn how to handle criticism better. Plus I got to meet all of you fine people!

I think Yuri felt bad over all of this, but it was certainly none of his fault that this guy appeared to harass me.

As for multiple quoting, I opened the same window in 2 browsers, the one I used to compose my response, and the other to quote each person, then copy and paste it into the response window. I had seen it done on another forum and felt this was the time and place to try it for myself!

Thanks again for being so understanding, you are a very gracious girl! (whew, I got that right!)

With a name like Podunklander, anything is possible!

Welcome to Corfid John, your among friends here. That video Yuri posted was really great. Hope to get to see and hear it again.

What BillW posted also made me laugh out loud... Funny guy that BillW...

Was going to be Podunklanderella so there'd be no mistaken my gendah (Bostonian accent...'tis the season ). I bettah watch my 'eh's' though so I'm not mistaken for a Jays fan (eh?). Oh well, if I let one slip be it known as a tribute to my Canadian relatives near and far.

Hey Pam,

Pudunklanerella is a lot longer than Pam, but has a certain ring to it. Up here in the cold north, we'll be seeing the grass turn green in the next four weeks, then it'll be time for me to dig out my 'sneakahs'. (my attempt at Bostonian accent) I think that's the correct term you use, we call them running shoes, even though nobody really runs in them.

Hey, I have an ex-piano that hailed from Boston from the 1880s but it lives in my ex's house. So I have at least a little connection!

And Jessie Joe, thank you for the welcome! I am looking into upgrading a music website membership so that I can post a video, if that happens I'll be able to link it again. I won't put it on YouTube, too many jerks on there criticizing what they don't understand.

I know, Boston is like the piano capital of the universe. Perhaps other universes too!

Here's the piano, it's a Hallett & Cumston, but I no longer own it. It weighs about 1000 lbs and was wider than the doorways, a beast to get into the house!

I love those Victorian pianos. btw John, I was referring to the supposed sunken piano that so many searched for in an attempt to reverse 'the Curse' ...as in the Bambino's Turns out that venture wasn't necessary but the search continues on..unless -by chance did your piano come from Saugus?

Welcome, John.

Hey BILLW, I didn't know that was a song, I just liked how you "sang" it. Sounded good. Later I typed it in at youtube and found a song called "Don't Let the Bastards Grind You Down" by The Toasters. Catchy tune.

Hey Patti,

If Borderstone had time to post I am sure he could tell you all about the Toasters. That man is amazing with all music trivia.

Welcome to our group, John. I know you will enjoy it here and like your new "corfid family". Thank you for your wonderful contributions.

Patti,

The lyrics I was (mis-)quoting are from "Bill & Annie" on the album "Running, Jumping, Standing Still" by John Koerner and Willie Murphy. It's widely available after all these years. A partial review here:

Bill and Annie" ramps up the party again, with one of the best choruses on the album--"don't let the bastards wear you down/don't get hassled to a frazzle."
