You find a borderline pedophile comment less amusing than people bothered by it? Sorry, what he wrote is gross, creepy, and concerning, and your support of the comment is gross, because you’re supporting someone requesting cleavage from teenagers or slightly older, so I guess you’re ok with pedo requests? I mean, based on your comment you are, which is messed up.

I never said I supported the request and I'm not okay with it, but to think that it hasn't been happening is wishful thinking. BD - Felliniesque comes to mind.

You don't support it and you're not okay with it, so why keep talking about it?

This is so gross.  Just let it end.  

Also, if a corps hasn't done this as a ballad or pretty moment, it's long overdue.

Holst's "Saturn". And speaking of which, here's some cool footage:

You’re right, it has. However, openly requesting it is gross. And that is what poster did. To which you stated it’s absurd to call him out for requesting this. You literally said those of us calling him out is more absurd, which means you are more ok with his post, than those of us that think it’s a bad thing. So yeah, you did support that post more.

In your opinion! Nothing I said was in support of the post no matter how you try to spin it. I was pointing out what I believe is the hypocrisy of those that were offended by it but failed to note that such blatant sexualization of members has been ongoing for some time.

He made a request fir it. Yes it’s happened in the past, but openly requesting it is gross. That is why people were bothered, not by the fact that things like that have happened. Which has been my point all along. No one said it didn’t happen before, nor do they need to. To openly request designers to put the members in revealing attire is still disgusting. Find me where people stayed that it happened before and their support...then you have a point about those posters, but criticizing gross comments isn’t hipocratic since that was not what was being commented on.

No, Keith.

But there's this amazing piece of music that I hope a corps will do (not saying they should, but hope they will someday)

I saw this live a few months ago, and I've been obsessed with it since. Weinberg doesn't get nearly enough play - very similar to his contemporary Shostakovich. The first 90 seconds or so are terrific. The slow movement has a great melody (in places). And the entire fourth movement is excellent.

I owned up and apologized six weeks ago.  What more do you want me to do?
