    Default pink floyd clarification

    his name is spelled
    Gilmour
    NOT
    gilmoure
    or gilmore
    or gillmour.

    and I think his lapsteel work is a critical element in dark side of the moon.

    but he also wasn't a founding member of pink floyd.

    not a lot of question, just a lot of people screwing it up over and over and over.

    I should probably make an English language clarification thread as well.

    Just so we don't have to worry about people making asses of themselves over and over and over and over and over and over.

    Were you trying to sarcastically point out some fault in the construction "over and over and over?"

    probably. unfortunately for webster here, grammatically incorrect repetition is perfectly acceptable in informal writing as a creative method.

    So is misspelling surnames?

    Anything could be?

    Not really. It's a proper noun. It's someone's name. It's not a stylistic option. Either way, my point is that you ought to be more careful of getting high-handed with grammatical observations around here. Some of us actually know what we're talking about.

    I don't doubt that.
    I mean, you're the fellow who plans to consume a quarter vile of acid in a couple of days. You have GOT to know what you're talking about.

    The English language is alive, god damn you.

    Anything can be a stylistic option. Ask Burgess or Burroughs. Kafka or Kerouac.

    However any one person would like to write their brain is the way it is written. There is no proper way to express yourself.

    You are an asshole.
    You make that evident over and over and over and over again.

    I hope you become the whale's tail and the polo field eats you.

    This isn't a question of the English language. YOU'RE the one that made the stylistic judgment. HE was talking about being appropriately respectful of a man's name. Proper nouns are not "alive." They are definite terms.

    Nice sentence. How is it that I eat vials of acid and you're the one that can't string a coherent thought together?

    Everything is alive. I intended for that sentence to be formed that way. I hate you with all of my soul.

    one question, donut-puncher:
    are you really suggesting that David Gilmour should be spelled any differently in the context of discussing his and/or pink floyd's music?
    or are you just trolling, picking fights?
    I fucking thought so.

    I just don't think it should matter how anybody spells Gilmouruouru as long as you know that they are talking about the most recent guitarist for Pink Floyd.

    Well then let's just disregard all rules of spelling, semantics, grammar, and syntax entirely. That should provide for effective communication. Are you illiterate by any chance?

    hey menik: why don't you print out your four thousand or so posts, start shoving them in each and every one of your dripping, infected, rotten orifices, and get back to me when you're halfway finished. is this thread about coldplay? don't bring that shit over here.

    and skyfriends-
    are you really such a fart-gulping douchenozzle that you think you can spell people's names however you like, as though everyone in the world should follow your retarded concepts of universal abstract identity?

    thread had two purposes.

    1) get people to spell David Gilmour's name right.
    2) clarify to a few people that he wasn't actually a founding member of pink floyd

    and as a sub-purpose, I wanted to point out that his most famous contributions to DSOTM (as in the bits people tend to remember the most) were on the lapsteel, not guitar.

    comprende? or is someone pending for a bending?

    You are a complete and utter tool. lapsteel is a guitar. wtf do you think it is?

    It's perfectly acceptable if you are not a douche to refer to a lapsteel as a guitar. So, no I don't comprende the reeason you would point out such a trivial fact. You can be more specific I suppose but overal it's not incorrect to call a lapsteel a guitar.

    i usually don't complain about people's threads, but dude, if people on a message board misspelling some guy's name is a big problem for you, your life must be pretty sweet...i mean, really...who cares?

    gfys, fax.
    have you ever fucking played a lapsteel?
    not only is it completely different in construction and playing method, but it doesn't even generate sound in the same manner as a guitar.

    the POINT was that gilmour's got a lot of skill on lapsteel. I haven't seen waters play one. I wonder if he'll play those parts live, or if someone else will?
    and jesus christ. are fuckig coachella board reglars chewing ME out for getting anal about details? are you hypocritical bastards out of your god damned minds?

    I've clarified two things:
    one
    David Gilmour is spelled
    David Gilmour.
    two
    some of the most iconic stuff in DSOTM (i.e the instrumental harmony at the beginning of breathe) was played on lapsteel, not guitar.
