  2. Mods - why was my topic deleted from the forum?

    A very common reason was always "collateral damage" -- it could be that at 3am someone went on a tear and said all kinds of horrible things in many separate posts and in the morning a mod saw it and said OMG cannot even deal with this shit I'll just remove the whole thing.
  3. Mods - why was my topic deleted from the forum?

    This is the Reasons for Removed Posts referred to earlier.   It's broken though, has been for years.  It would only show the reason if you were the OP.   Anyway, this page is still valid though lots of the links are broken: 
  4. Looking forward to it!   1) rappy 2) crusoe 3) Gen    
  5. Has it been so long?  I figure we'll get to meet up in January again unless you all come to our concert on Sunday, Dec. 10:ünchner-künstlerhaus/   Check out our huge variety!  Beethoven, Uptown Funk, and carols.  And more!  Would love to see you folks there --  It's in the afternoon this time because it's a Sunday.
  6. Mods: Toytown Aggression

      Your memory is correct, he was a mod for a while.  And he always complained about the Wiki being broken...  @Small Town Boy might get him to show up again just for lulz...
  7. Mods: Toytown Aggression

      Those are the only mods on the forum anymore.  I haven't been an admin since I quit in 2006.  And the Wiki is still broken -- the links here to the Moderation Team don't work anymore, looks to me like they've been turned off:

  9. Ooooh thanks for the Sedaris tip, I'd been seeing ads for the Vienna gig but nothing about Munich.  Facebook's algorithms are sometimes impenetrable.  I'll definitely go to that.   As always during choir season, I can meet up any day BUT Wednesday.   12 Tues crusoe, Gen 13 Wed crusoe, Patonki 14 Thur crusoe, Gen 19 Tues crusoe, Gen 26 Tues crusoe, Gen 27 Wed crusoe, Patonki    
  10. Read about Dinner for One at, the channel that originally produced the film. Search for "Dinner for One" and you'll find it on their site along with the documentation of the rituals that have grown up around this show. They also filmed a version in Plattdeutsch, which I found terrible. Miss Sophie smokes a cigar through the whole thing -- seems they took "Platt" to mean more than just the dialect.   The movie is in English, done by English people, but apparently nobody in the UK has ever heard of it. Freddie Frinton and his partner May Warden toured southern England's sea baths doing sketches: this is one. A German TV producer saw it, had them appear live on his show, and then had them film the sketch (1963) -- Freddie Finton's only film. He died five years later, and in 1972 the film was first shown on German TV. Now it's on every year at Silvester, I might see it myself this year for the first time. It's actually the old lady's 90th birthday, still don't know why it ended up being a New Year's tradition.     Kika, the Kinderkanal, has done a parody: Dinner für Brot     There's also a Swiss version from Schweizer Fernsehen, which has minimal differences: it's shorter, as they eliminated the introduction, assuming their audience would be able to figure out what was going on. I find the camera angles terrible in this production, the German one focuses on the more expressive bits.   Read more (in German) on Dinner for One at wikipedia!
