msb-0192 A Critique and A Response

msb-0192 A Critique and A Response

Feedback comes first, so...

I got mail! I got mail...

From a fellow MSer who lives in Brooklyn New York.

Thank you Brenda.

Your email was just the "pick me up" I needed.

Suffice it to say I'm in a strange musical mood.

You're getting some MIDI files of Domenico Scarlatti by John Sankey that I found on the internet for free download.

Feed Forward comes next, so...

This is "your" segment.

Say "your" piece on this segment.

Share with other MSers whatever "you" want to share.

Drop me an email: charles at

Feed Me comes third, so...

Do you have a therapy, product, good or service that is of interest to MSers?

Consider advertising on this podcast.

Reminders on this segment only cost $0.03 per reminder per download of an episode. (A $30CPM targeted at MSers.)

It can/should lead to a full ad, in text, audio or video, which costs $3.00 per download.

That sounds expensive until you do the math and realize that if nobody downloads it it costs you nothing, unlike print, where you often can't even get an ad in to the specialized journals, or radio or TV where you'd just be wasting your money with the 0.0833% MSers rate of return. (That's about six times "below" the level of "statistical noise".)

But MSBPodcast is 100% in your market, and you only pay per download of your material.

No play, no pay.

Reach the MSers who would buy your therapy, product, good or service, with-out having to waste your advertising money on anyone who is "not" interested...

I have been critiqued and on reflection, I have found the critique to be a valid one.

The critique concerns my writing style.

Its too akin to some of Bach's two part inventions in structure; very satisfying works but later he supplanted himself with works of better and more expressive scope.

I have been writing the equivalent of two part inventions when, all of the musical styles, and all of the writing styles, that I respect are three part inventions.

So this marks a departure into three part invention.

Its hard to think in three parts; its like "not" having a third hand, trying to venture into a "partita" with such a disadvantage.

Much of the music I wrote were in sonata form even when they relied on "jeux de paume" (finger play) to carry the melodic lines. Indeed most music has been written in three parts.(I'm sure that my old music professor would smiling down on me if I believed in such a place as heaven.)

I am about to adventure into the essay.

My writing, and therefore the structure of this show will reflect the thesis, synthesis, conclusion of the well reasoned essay, just like a piece of good Baroque music.

There many conventions that I must respect.

The shows all need to provide feedback, that is what I start off every show with after all.

The shows all need to provide feed-forward since this is my audience's opportunity to respond of to provide their own inputs into the shows.

The shows all need to provide information of a commercial nature from any advertisers I do get.

That makes up a triumvirate which must be respected, since I respect my audience.

The throws my segments into turmoil though.

When I write, I must have a point to make.

I then have to explain my point.

I then have to reach a conclusion of some form.

Hopefully I will henceforth be a better writer through using the essayist's conventions and make my points much more effectively.

I will therefore revisit prior themes and see how much more effectively I make the point.

The first thing to revisit is my contention that "NOBODY" likes self-injecting and that pulmonary drug delivery is a reasonable alternative to be explored.
