I truly love that. Sometimes in the randomness of internet audio idiocy there are events where I become sort of epicenter of bashing. I say “sort of” as they do not discuss my personally or what I stay for but instead the intent Morons mostly share with each with each other their fears how bad I might be. I am sure that someone having interest in the fields social group psychosis would write a PHD dissertation about it. I personally have great amusement reading pages and pages of white trashes from some kind audiokarma or stevehoffman forums discussing that they understood from the pictures from my site.
I mention the pictures from my site as 95% of those white trashed do not invest themselves into anything deeps then to look a few pictures and to browse “for sale” section of my site. There are however 5% of the intellectuals who do try to read my site. They have enough efforts to read a part of “my playback” page and then they share their idiotic “expressions”. My beloved “expression” that I absolute adore is the following: If he invest all those efforts and then listening FM radio 80% of time then he is a fool who have no idea what he listens.
Well, as I told. Each of the internet idiots express opinion restricted by own ignorance, own stupidity and own fear, thankfully all of it exes in great volumes in internet audio. The reality is that FM radio is a phenomenal source, as the subject of this thread suggests.
Let take yesterday for instance.
Early morning it was The Bach Hour with Brian McCreath, the Harpsichord Concerto in E and two cantatas. Brian play CDs, he knows Bach well and I a few times bought some CDs when I liked what Brian played. Then there was life broadcast from Fraser perfuming studio with renown harpist Ina Zdorovetchi plaing harp. I do not care too much about solo harp play but I need to admit the Liszt’s Piano Consolation converted to harp was very nice. Then there was a repeat from last night live broadcast of Marc-Andre Hamelin celebrated the Liszt’s 200 birthday. How many chances the mortal Morons have to have pianist of Hamelin caliber to play for them a private recital, including the Sonata in B minor? Then there was re-broadcast of Saturday live performance of Boston symphony with Brahms Second piano concerto and Third symphony. Then a program dedicated to Franz Liszt 200th Anniversary with semi-live broadcast from a dozen concert hall around the world with pianists palsy Liszt music. I said semi-live as it was a synchronous translation in studio of the host from different countries. Then there was Arias and Barcarolles programs with most of WGBH own recordings in New England and one track from Dorian CD. Then there was a program with historical recording of Toscanini with BBC Symphony. Then there was live broadcast of Verdi's Rigoletto from Washington National Opera. Then I was trying to listen last night’s live broadcast from Sanders Theater of Harvard-Radcliffe Orchestra but it was too much for me.
You got to be kidding yourself if you feel that this density of LIVE programming is “not enough”. I know, I know, the Morons complain about the “quality” of FM that they accustom to get in their cars. I can only assure you that the sound I am getting in my room from FM is much more interesting then 1000s of white trashes out there are getting from their LP and SACDs. I am very much not kidding.Rgs,
