while it is true i am usually avoiding th curb ;-) and looking for th
dip in roads, why does 'sylvi' keep coming up in dat CEC dis.cussion /
dredged up so to speak / squeak ? am i in trouble again, and i didn't
even write nothing ? didn't Gertrude Stein write something about going
there only to find out there was no there. i believe it is time to take
'sylvi' & comments regarding her music / text off list, way off list. if
you wish to dis cuss or criticize or defend 'sylvi' plz do so directly
through or th Canadian Consulate or :-) We may
have NO answer but plz take sylvi off list, OK ?

Either that or Kevin and i will have to have a heart to heart and while
his heart is kind, he is also a byt more realiztic than i am. After all,
i was a very bad / dab Irish Comedian, now forced to spin my wheels all
day long practising action comedy with Travolta & Grover et al out back
of Kanuka Ranch and since i got th Marcia Award for ElectroAcoustic Arts
at SFU in 1999 i have far bigger shoes than mine to fill. i do not want
to stand on th shoulders of Giants. i want to speak and listen to them.

while i appreciate th critisms and ne'er turn away from a good jest /
swim or a friends' helping hands it is time to drop th name o sylvi from
th subject or body o th CEC-conference. i'd like to work on how i'm
going to throw an international electroacoustic hockey party where we
might all compose, with no high sticking or ascii aloud ;-) talk about
codex etc, eh ? And i got to get to work on WHEELS, Harmonica in 8
Directions, Composing for Film, and Producing a few CDs hear and
And th other computer chickens / composers hear are busy composing /
inventing / creating code / instruments / we-pods .... etc ...

Morgan escrib: "Sylvi actually has something to say and I'd like to
hear it." Thank you, i thought that twas what you meant. i still prefer
pseudo-comedic. thanks for th quote :-) Miriam, thank you for 'standing'
up for me, but if i am going to run over peoples toes a 6mph i'll have
to learn to do it myself, but prefer i not to. i use a bicycle bell (not
an air horn). But, if anyone asks me if i need help, i'm going to tell
them 'i could use a new yacht'. (insert your favorite ascii). Please
join us when we have th WHEELS conference set up at - VAMS - vancouver adapted music
society. i will certainly need and heed Mr Austin(s) advice as
Moderator. Thank You Kevin, iriXx, Morgan et al .. btw, what is a pwnt ?
(plz reply to .. i love NASA & NASA loves me :-)
