Composers' Forum

Music Composers Unite!

Hey Composers!

You may have noticed there's been some pockets of anxiety and offensive behavior along with our growing propensity for trolling/derailing. Lots of stuff to make it tough on our little forum!

I believe that everyone here is good people, with good intent, and interested in developing as a musician/composer here. A lot of points get lost or created because text is very difficult to read emotion and sarcasm. There are also a few who have let the intensity of who we are cause themselves strife and that spills out into their writing.

I think one thing that might be super good for the forum, and would be a lot of fun also would be if we joined a Google Hangout and do a video conference call. We can just get together and meet each other, face to face, and at least initially just meet and have small talk.

So, I will be hosting a Composers' Forum Google Hangout video conference call this coming Wednesday, 4/27/16 at 3:30pm eastern time!

I will post a link here once I start the stream and all are welcome to join me! I'd really like to get to know you, and I am hoping you would like that too! If the time isnt great dont worry! If we can get even 3 or 4 to join this time and it works well, I will try to do them like bi-weekly maybe. I hope to see you Wednesday!

I bet you will find that most people you have met in text are all very similar to you, and that you have a lot in common and will be a really fun way to hang for an hour! Come on come on, dont worry, nobody will judge that HUGE OMG WART ON YOUR NOSE OMG hahaha ;-) really it will be low key and just chill a min. I think you can join voice only too if you dont want to share vid

Do I have to put my teeth in...???

Not necessary! Just enunciate. Very. Slowwwly :D

Chris, it's an interesting proposition, but I for one don't have any skype

capabilities, the up side being that I don't worry about spinach in my teeth. lol

I'd be happy to 'chat along' with y'all', but can't do the face to face thing.    Peace     RS

Google Hangout isn't skype. Anyone with a gmail account can get into hangouts. So it can be done on your phone, computer(with a web cam), or tablet, with a rear facing camera. Join the new millennium, Roger ;-) 

I like the idea, Chris

Bob, I still have a 1996 model Nokia phone... and only on my 2nd battery. lol

Honestly, I want no part of 'the new millenium'. You may ask why, but suffice it

to say, I have my reasons. I have never had a credit card and never had a

mortgage, but designed, built and own, my own house. I have no debt either.

Call me old fashioned, but it's deeper than that. Yes, I'm comfortably different.    RS

ps- no offense intended, but I will stick to my principles regardless of current trends

It was a joke.

So . . . 1930 GMT? I think? Timezones confuse me. But if I really can use my gmail account and iPhone, after spending an hour on the most flattering lighting of course, that could be good.

Yes! Im pretty sure gmt is eastern +4 right now. You can do on phone, you will need the google hangouts app:
Hangouts by Google, Inc.
https://appsto.re/us/KUVwM.i

There is similar for android, other phones

Or you can do it in any browser. You only need a gmail acct. if you have a csmera and want to share you can choose video, or just voice, maybe even just text too? Not sure on that but i think so

Actually, and truthfully, thanks for the insight.

Roger,

In the spirit of camaraderie, I humbly suggest that not having a mortgage or credit card have nothing to do with the new millennium. though it might be that your ability to live as you do is built on the backs of and otherwise because of all the rest of us that do :-)

I was looking forward to meeting you screen to screen :- )

Bob, ouch........ but in the spirit of camera-derie, my point was that

I ain't got none of them new fangled de-vices. :<{    and... you are seriously

baiting me into a side discussion, for clarity of fact vs. fiction.

Maybe at another time, in another thread  amigo, but presently the ice is

a bit thin. :>}

In the mean time I will look forward to meeting you and others here- at some point.
