jim o, etc....
- Davis, I know what your saying and this is not really a comparison, but Jim O really isn't arrogant like Mr. vat, he's actually very kind and shy....and just a giant musicologist, that at the same time actually has a couple good tricks up his sleeve... which doesn't mean relying on bird samples.

>Jim O really isn't arrogant like Mr. vatok, just a few words:
beginning of this year hrvatski performed in berlin.
i enjoyed the performance even more than i had expected after listening
to his excellent cd.
also i've heard from my colleague who organized the concert that he was
very kind and that it was a pleasure to deal with him. since i later
regretted not to have talked to him at the occasion of this concert, i
sent him a mail, which he answered in a very kind way.
telling all this just to say that in my experience there was never a
trace of arrogance on hrvatski's part.
(other than btw in some remarks on scanner on this list, but this is
another story. when i come to think of it, maybe it's more or less the
same story actually).
((hi ben - what about the inversion cds i was asking for some years ago?))
(((oops - please ignore this last sentence: it was meant to be private!)))
i did not quite understand hrvatski's harsh comment on the list, but
doesn't each of us - at one point or the other - think that it is
bullshit? correct me if i'm wrong.
writing all this i am feeling rather silly, but i think this is at least
partly owing to the character of this thread.
(maybe all this sounds totally humourless - actually i enjoyed the
threads about garden chairs and silent cell phone rings more than some
other stuff on this list...)
over here it's becoming spring finally, the sun is shining, and probably
i should rather go out for a walk instead of caring about all this...
p.s. my favourite song of today is the hrvatski remix on the kid 606 and
(okay, i AM humourless today...)
