Cheers, y'all!

Yeah, I know it's off-topic, but as a drummer myself, I'd like to add that one
of the talk-show hosts here in Atlanta says that to him, jazz sounds like five
guys all playing different songs at the same time.

And once again, a vain elitism rears its ugly head. Ironically, it is the same
type of thinking that labels the general public as "no minds" that leads the
arrogant developers in Peter Neilson's anecdote to ignore the TW's request for
information about how to turn off Auto Save.

By the way, I've been playing the drums for almost 30 years, and I understand
structure, scales, rhythm, syncopation, melody, pitch, consonance, dissonance,
and articulation. While I am no Buddy Rich or Dave Weckl and haven't "studied"
jazz, I understand jazz and can play jazz--and I don't care for most jazz. While
there is some jazz that I really do like, I most often think of jazz by its
other name: noise.

I studied jazz, and the most common phrase we used was, "The general public are
no minds."
