Where have all the grumpy people gone?
... long time ago...
Seen from a grumpy overlook, all musical instruments are artificial extensions of us. The human voice, unamplified, is the only thing that is truly clean, dry and given by God. God supplies the materials for our clever minds to put together -- sheep gut for strings, bones and reeds for flutes, and so on, and eventually the ability to dig for ore and oil and chemists' brains to figure out how to manufacture reverb units.
Playing a keyboard without reverb in a dry room can be frightening -- the tone just ENDS when you let your fingers up. This means your are RESPONSIBLE for every white space in the music, as well as the tone itself: no reverb to fill those empty microseconds. It's like when you're playing an acoustic grand and the pedal cotter pin comes off and suddenly all is dry and plain and out there in the open, with no pedal-acoustic-reverb from the sympathetic strings.
Curious -- my spell check does not recognize "reverb" as a word.
Where have all the grumpies gone? / Long time passing
Where have all the grumpies gone? / long time ago
When have all the grumpies gone? / Back-row pews are wide and long
When will they ever learn? / When will they ever learn?
Your singing that in the wrong key and the wrong tempo, to match my whinging and whinning.
Anyway, who gave you permission to use one of them hippy songs here........ What is the world coming to? humph!!!!!
It's a bit like trying to spell check guit for guitar, just add the word "reverb" to your dictionary and it will be OK from then on.
They've gone the same way as all of the other six spiritual Dwarves:
Sleepy -- He's got Sardis in his eyes. (Rev. 3:1) Better wake up!
Dopey -- blown here and there by every wind of doctrine (Eph. 4:14)
Bashful -- "if you deny Me in front of your friends, I will deny YOU..." (Matt. 10:33)
Doc -- "...twelve years she bled, and bled as well by her doctors for all she had." SHAME. (Luke 8:43)
Sneezy -- "many of you are weak and sick, and some have died" (failing to recognize Christ among them, even as they shared communion together) 1 Cor. 11:29-30
Happy -- Heigh-ho! Height-ho! Away with the noise of your songs! Woe to you who are complacent in Zion... you put off the evil day and bring near a reign of terror. (Amos 5:23, 6:1)
Grumpy doesn't look so bad against this lot! But even so, the Word reminds us not to grumble, as some of them did (1 Corinthians 10:10) and were destroyed by the Destroyer.
I'm not sure quite where we fit in with the Dwarfs but it does look as if a lot of us have died.
Talking of Dwarfs, did you here the one about the password:
‘I needed a password eight characters long, so I picked Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.’
All the grumpy people are still here just asleep and waiting to be poked.
I'll have a look and see if I can find a sharp stick!
Then I may be able to poke a few!!
I'm still here, but not as grumpy as I once was..........haven't got the energy!
