    RUMOR: TGP plans to retire in 2019

    Large talk from a wannabe Disco Stu!
  6. Yes and as others have said I think it would obviously apply to his film work only unless there is some physical impediment to his continuing at all. For any concerned or saddened at the idea I have lately discovered the profound importance in valuing the simple existence of a thing rather than its permanence or impermanence. A simple lesson but one which many of us still need to learn the hard way it seems.

    RUMOR: TGP plans to retire in 2019

    Good luck. Wojo ignored me just a few weeks ago yet responded to my thread with obvious care and concern. Please remember to vote in my poll -

    RUMOR: TGP plans to retire in 2019

    Only takes the occasional misunderstanding to stink things up though. You know I reckon I have more acquaintances in the real world who are familiar with this forum without being members than anyone else here does - actually I'm not so sure. Regardless it offers me an interesting angle on our public perception so to speak. As for my retirement I think I've made it clear for a while now that the atmosphere and content of this place has been moving in a direction that I don't really like. That's just a product of time passing. It's also tied in with my own ventures in "the biz" and my growing disillusionment with that world as well. I feel that I've done something useful here as far as spreading some ideas and knowledge. I truly relished the excellent musical discussion I was able to take part in especially with younger folks like Sharky and Jilal and others. It was a wonderful chance to exchange ideas and hopefully teach something, given how much I learned from them at the same time. While growing as a composer myself it was encouraging to see others thriving along the road behind me, and ahead of me. I've even had a young composer offer me my own advice on something, not realizing it was me they'd gotten it from on here. Given that there is a vanishing market for that here now, and that lively discussions about music and quality banter are also growing rare, I find myself having these fits of wanting to break the habit entirely. You'll have to forgive me if it seems melodramatic. I'll not pretend that I haven't become rather attached to many of you. It's a tricky habit to kick. Yet when there's always a new snarky twit to give me grief about something inconsequential, I am reminded of the need.

    I suppose it's what you get from a sarcastic and self deprecating sense of humor that doesn't translate well in text and the inability to censor onseself when things get thorny.

    RUMOR: TGP plans to retire in 2019

    Jerry is testy, and apparently the latest humorless JWFan to take issue with me - and others like Stefan who he feels post often without contributing.
  11. I know where this comes from and it seems well founded. However, since many have tried before and failed we should obviously treat it is a rumor.

    My avatar signifies the usual status of a disgruntled and/or absent poster. Tell JWFan...I feel fine.

    Everything I know about the world beyond America is from James Bond movies.
  14. Oh search for compliments if you must, Administrator. Meanwhile, I think I'd like a nice OST, or, a large brandy.
