Talk about anything but keep it polite and reasonably clean.

First usage on TPF of that word. Gloating would have been met with scorn, but as it was done quietly, I thought that it should have been acknowledged.

There could, perhaps, be a subsidiary competition for those noticers.

What an enjoyable thread! I love the sight of bomphiologia in the morning (with apologies to John Milius)

It has been used entirely correctly. An extra point to Julian for your being such a bad sport.
Yes, perhaps I should have checked that no Classical Greek dancers or poetry composed along particular lines had been offered as an intermezzo for slides. I presumed too much.
I agree that the usage went slightly beyond the strict classical meaning. But in the sense of a song to the god of wine, I hoped that it was close enough.
I wish to withdraw my objection to the use of dithyramb in the context Julian used. I have given the matter careful consideration since the seventh of July and think I have been too pedantic.

I was hoping, but dared not presume...

Unless the Scylla and Charybdis of this thread (yes I do mean you two) have anything to say on the matter.

Sorry. I was at Covent Garden watching a production of Tristan and Isolde in which the singing was all absolutely faultless, in fact quite sublime, but nobody had been given anything to do but 'stagger about and lean on a chair'. Very disappointing. It made the long slow boring bits, which Wagner was really good at, quite long and slow. But what an ending.

Daniel, you're back! Saved from Julian, Barnes that is not ours.

I think you should post this here; http://www.theportforum.com/viewtopic.p ... t=Concerts which I discovered quite by chance when trying to see if Derek could add 'odious' to his list on this thread. Alas no, three times in total, once by myself and the other was in reference to Mr Paul Gadd. Quite.
