Chris, that's a little unfair isn't it? Valentin didn't say he achieved that, just that it was difficult to do so.

Anyway, I'm open to that more benign interpretation, though I understand others might read it differently.

It reminds me a bit of the artist pages here, in which most of us—including me but not Chris, to his credit—talk about ourselves in the third person, giving the impression that someone else is saying all sorts of nice things about us.

Bios in third person have been mostly the norm on PS for one or another reason. I had mine initially like that. But when I wanted to change it around a bit it seemed to me that it's really phony to write about oneself in the 3rd person, so I changed to 1st person. Luckily I don't have any nice things to say about myself :D

Well in that case it's a very lofty goal. Don't we all strive to be perfect !

What good is this kind of posting of YouTube videos on the Audition forum anyways? Some time ago this section of the forum was intended for evaluation of recordings (meaning MP3 files uploaded to this site) only. And nowadays -- as it seems to me -- every second or third posting is of the type "look what I have uploaded to my YouTube channel". On YouTube there's just lots of egos "promoting" (even if it's amateurs) their stuff, while this site (as I see it) is not so much about who has recorded what, but more about having an ever growing collection of piano music.

I suppose I could have done... They may be stupid, but I love them a lot. They know beans about music though.
