I know we all have added some fun topics on this site and stated some pretty crazy things. I'm just as guilty as the next joe if not more, but what ever happened to the great inquiring minds? I know some may get offended by what I say, but my intent is not to single out any individual or subject matter. I'm just not hearing as much soulful Detroit related stuff anymore. We have some great resources from which to draw excellent information that we're not taking advantage of. Help...!

To paraphrase someone smarter than myself, the most effective criticism would be to start a better thread than the ones you feel are subpar. This one probably is not it.

I'm happy to have any Soul Music related topic plus bits and pieces, but Horse has made a good point IMO.

You can take whatever shot you want to take. I stated in my thread, that I had no intent to dog any specific person or subject matter. I just was missing some fire in the conversation. Yes, you were correct in stating that if I wanted superior subject matter I should create it myself. Perhaps I may. Obviously, your entry didn't add any quality either.

I wasn't trying to take a shot, really. I would love to see the level of discourse raised. I also totally agree that we are not doing it here, which was my only point.

Ken also makes a good point.
Anyway, we have an incredible 64 discussions on tap at the moment.
About half are Detroit related. Maybe that is reasonable. I would certainly rather have 64 rather than 32!
The main thing is that all webisodes will be 100% Detroit.
Thanks to EVERYONE for continuing to support the forum.

Cool, Peace and Hair Grease..!
I will shake up my brain and see if I can start a fire.

All good points,
the forum is great...but the FOCUS has changed here lately...FOCUS is the title of this thread.

HEY HORSE,BE CAREFUL WITH THAT SHAKING UP AND STARTING FIRES STUFF,REMEMBER THAT THE OL SOUL PROSPECTOR IS DEEEEEEEP IN THE GOLDEN OLDIES MINES AND THE LAST THING HE WANTS TO HEAR ABOUT IS FIRES AND SHAKES..HEY IT'S EARLY THIS IS THE BEST I COULD COME UP WITH!

I think having so many discussions, with at least half of them having nothing to do with soul or Detroit, has diluted a great forum substantially.
The level of discourse has changed a bit...I've looked to this forum for people who know a lot about music, I hope that returns ...

It does get a bit tiresome to weed thru the (if you could be a tree,what type would you be) type of threads.
Yet I contribute to those as well,(I need to get out more)
