Oh how I'm taken aback  by that;  the soundtrack to junior high and its unrequited lust.

Welcome Frankramos1952. 

Like your music posting but your goal of getting everyone on board is a real tough nut to crack. Not that I don't admire your lofty goal, it's just that it's so difficult to get their mind off of sports and the boob tube.

Make yourself at home.

   "The sound of colors is so definite that it would be hard to find anyone who would express bright yellow with base notes, or dark lake with the treble."

-Wassily Kandinsky


                                         
                                                      Autumn in Murnau


                                         
                                                             White sound   


                                           
                                                                Winter Landscape


                                           
                                                        Improvisation 31 (Sea Battle)   


                                             
                                                            Contrasting sounds

 
  The creator of the first modern abstract paintings, Wassily Kandinsky was an influential Russian painter and art theorist. In his youth, he studied law and economics at the University of Moscow, and was later hired as a professor of Roman law at the University of Dorpat in Estonia. He was 30 years old when he began his studies in painting, focusing on life drawing, sketching, and anatomy, at the University of Munich.

He was not immediately accepted into the school as an art student, and so in the meantime he began learning art by himself, gaining artistic insight from Monet’s Haystacks and Richard Wagner’s composition Lohengrin. He was also influenced by the teachings of anthroposophy

G.O.!
Thanks for the reply.
I am afraid you are right in your observations about DD, and TAE as well. It is a shame.
You are also right that my psa attachment to my posts was a bit over the top and it acted as a red flag. Got it.
You are also right that Ashvin is the most intelligent participant over there by a wide margin.
So, you seem to be RIGHT about everything.   :)
I did not get any of your messages because I cannot access the personal messaging area of DD. My account seems to be fixed that way.
Anyway, we're in contact and I get what you are saying.
Yes, at some point I'm going to do my own (web) thing and I will publicize it so you can stop by if you like. Main probable starting point: men's health, a subject about which I know a fair amount and think I can offer something useful.
You're a good man, G.O.
Cheers!
Alan

Hi Alan,

I sent you messages to contact me here. Sorry, I thought you could see messages from members but not send them.

It wasn't just you I was defending, but the whole idea of Free Speech. Let me apologize to you for the bigots and buffoons who labeled you a troll and got rid of you, they did the same to me before, so I know how you feel.

There was no excuse for their behavior, and I feel terrible about it. You did make a mistake in my opinion on leaving that banner on your postings, it was like waving a red flag in a bull pen, and it gave them an excuse to ban you. Other than that you conducted yourself properly in my view. You have to understand how they are like horses with blinkers on, they can only see in one direction as they are guided in their harnesses by the teem driver. A pitiful site.  Ilargi at TAE is another dogmatic dolt that has been wrong for about ten years now, but it means nothing to him. Same drivel day after day and barks at dissenters. Of course in the class, brains, and sophistication department he is in another league altogether, but the inability to see the other side of the coin is there just the same.

Let me assure you that arguing, talking reason, or joking and building friendships with the hand picked cadre over there is a total waste of time. They were all selected for a reason, as I am sure you are currently aware.

Oh well, what can I say? I am sick of their bullying and threats and have stopped posting in total disgust for the past few days. Their hypocrisy is the most amazing thing I have ever witnessed in my life, Our view or No view allowed, as they lament about the same thing going on in the world that they practice there. Ashvin, the most brilliant and honorable person there by a very wide margin tried to explain it nicely to them as well, but you saw what happened there as well.

No big deal, don't let it upset you, it means nothing to them, they are totally without shame. Thanks for writing, it was a pleasure to hear from you. Keep in touch Alan and send me a link to your new website if you get it off the ground.        Regards, GO

HI, G.O.!
Alan2102 here, from DD.
Hey, I just wanted to say THANK YOU for the support you gave me at DD.
I really do appreciate it.
I would have sent you a message on DD, but they've fixed my account
so I cannot do that. So I looked you up... and here you were!
Thanks again, and God bless you.
Alan
