    Solo - So quiet we can't hear it!
    Andante - The range of speeds that a marching band sets off at. In order to control this tempo and avoid unsightly shuffling, you need to ensure the trombones are all shorter than 5'6".

    A long time ago, tMP had reputation points, where you could + or - a person's reputation if you liked or disliked a post. It all seemed a bit silly to me, especially when I realised I was miffed about a negative laid against me. The problem was, you didn't know who was 'dissing' you, so had no right to reply. (Sound familiar?)

    For whatever reasons, TMM pulled the plug.

    I do like the concept of a simple "Like" button, though.

    Semi-Quavers - the result of your bass player sitting on the above.
