|This man has gone too far!|
Dear much loved readers (except for The Curmudgeon), your favourite blog has been slighted.
The Curmudgeon (one of many Curmudgeons at The Curmudgeon Inc.) writes,
"And, while we're here I contest that "original bass bagging site" claim. Wasn't there some guy by the name of Ben or Ken who created the original. Maybe the Curmudgeon's Inc. coud 'fact check' that."
I think he's talking about a site (not a blog) called Ken's Corner. There are quite a few bass sites on the internet, there may be some blogs too for all I know.
Richard's Bass Bag* is unique in that it invented the concept of bass bagging.
Bass bagging is a coloquial term that was invented right here on this blog. You won't find a definition in the Oxford Dictionary.
It's like when an Italian says, "A mia volta."
This literally means in my turn but, to an Italian, it has subtle overtones.
Bass bagging is a term with subtle hidden meanings.
- To do things that bring safety to basses (putting a double bass in a bag to take it somewhere).
- Telling tales about basses or other instruments that Richard (of RBB) plays.
- 'Bagging' someone (in a big bag, big enough for a double bass) for talking nonsense.
- Telling humerous tales - throwing ideas into the bag.
Any explanation of bass bagging is
going to be complicated.
|Richard Prouse Park in Nuova Lazio.|
Okay The Curmudgeon, in his desperate to save face moment, will notice the spelling of the park's name - Prouse instead of Prowse. In actual fact these two spellings were often interchanged in past times. No big deal.
|A big deal.|
We at Richard's Bass Bag* take huge pride in the traditions that this blog has created. We find The Curmudgeon's comment offensive and WE DEMAND AN APOLOGY!
