It IS you and it is getting funnier and it should be a pleasure to moderate. We are moderate people who are pleasurably funny!

Oh that totally came out wrongly, it's always been a pleasure to moderate, but it's even better when you get some incredibly funny comments like the afore mentioned new machine comment.

You're all great people and this is a great forum making it great to moderate such great people on a great forum :lol:

I forgot to take that test...is it too late, cause I'm sure I'd win. Is there a prize? Is there a feminine version of git, or is it gender neutral?

It was bad enough that Syd was gone. Dave was an awesome replacement. But once Roger left, they were not the same band (nor were they the same when Syd left).
:D
Wow, so what'd you think the first time you heard "Ummagumma"??? :)

I really like the live album and some of the studio. I liked "Ummagumma" alot. just love most of the post syd stuf. I'll say it again: i love Dave's guitar playing, singing and writing. The band just started sound different, not better or worse necessarily. I Love IT ALL!! (mostly) :lol:

By the way, I always see you UK people saying "old git" which as a dumb, stupid American I take to mean "old person" but not in such a nice way...
I guess that I am an "old git" being 45 years old. I believe that is older than a good number of you (I may be wrong but i do know that David is 16 at least and he is the moderator--and a nice one at that!).

I guess that if you are calling one of US the oldest git, then it must not be a derogatory word, huh? :lol: :lol:

Dave's writing :?:

----

Anyway, I generally prefer Syd's singing style to David's, but I have a couple different VOIOs of Flaming, not lip-synched I don't think, where David is singing, and I must admit he does a great job, and dare I say I prefer it to Syd's.

Old git is a degrading term, but only when properly applied. The old git test doesn't properly prove an old git and therefore shouldn't cause offence, but a proper old git is someone like Mick Jagger who refuses to admit he's uncool and still beleives he's with the times.

If someone is with the times and is old then that's ok, if they're not then it's also ok, but if they're disallusioned then they are. My grandad for instance is an old git because despite being like 90 he still thinks he knows about rappers and stuff. A total embarassment.

Whatever happened to the term "boring old fart?" Or is that an old git term?

Can I say fart?

I remember it being a darn sight better than that atrocity Radio KAOS at the time. Loved it and still do. Even Dogs of War. Best Floyd album cover ever too.
