MUSIC

I used to have a list of all the music I've been obsessing over recently here, but if you really are interested, you can see what I've been listening to on my Last.FM profile at: http://www.last.fm/user/CoolBeans.

If you're thinking of signing up, I've set up an E2 usergroup there too.

NODERS WHO ROCK!

 

I can testify in a court of law, that these noders actually Do exist in real life: Haruspex, Panamaus, Montecarlo, Meidinhell, Spiregrain , StrawberryFrog (the guy who juggles), Hugo Rune, Catchpole, Mdn, Albert Herring, Wertperch, Grundoon, Tessie, Bipolarbear, Ascorbic, La Petite Mort, LeoDV, TenMinJoe, JodieK, RalphyK, Wiccanpiper, Pandora, Andrew Aguecheek, Booyaa,Wntrmute, Heyoka, TheLady, Princess Loulou, Gritchka, The Debutante, Wrinkly, Lady_Day, Fondue & Gnarl (briefly)], Cloudstrife, SharQ, JellyfishGreen.

Snail-mail rocks my world!

I have recieved gifts/cards via snail-mail from

  • Borgette (a beautiful hand-made book of her poetry),
  • francesemma (a mix cd, postcards of Hull, and a beautiful Christmas card)
  • skybluefusion (a Christmas card 2004)
  • Segnbora-t (a Christmas card 2004)
  • LSK (a mix cd)
  • Glowing Fish (letters)
  • Slidewell (mix cds)

    thank you all very much :)

     

    Spiregrain gets my vote for funniest noder EVER!:

  • spiregrain says re three bean-stew: /me hopes you now do a collection of nodes about beans, in honour of your user-name.
  • I really enjoy reading the writings of Borgo, Borgette, Slidewell, Riverrun, Haruspex, Balseraph & RACECAR/BROCKEN.

    Other noders who just rock in general (but for no specific reason) are: Wertperch, TheDeadGuy, RACECAR/BROCKEN, LSK (the dancing fool!), Cloudstrife, FeltTips, Glowing Fish, Chase, Akatchoom, , and You

    The following things are a lot of fun:

    try them, or else...

  • Golden Trinkets,
  • Everything Sperm Counter
  • Everything I-Ching
  • Everything Arranged Marriage Registry for all you single types out there
  • Everything Rumors but if you want the REAL gossip, join ninjagirls!
  • Node Heaven
  • Talking like a pirate is fun but annoys people - try it - it is fun!
  • You know you are addicted to Everything when...Yclept tells you so!
  • psychic tickle (but don't go there if you're ticklish - be WARNED!
