The Big Hello Thread



I'm Dan.
I'm 19.
I listen dancehall and lil bit of hip hop and UKG w/ a side order of everything else.
I watch a fair amount of japanese anime.
I play role playing video games and whatever takes my interest to distract me from coursework (if music ain't workin')
I'm from South East (England, not London).
I'm studying C++ and application design at City College Norwich.
I work part time at a stupid regional electrical retailer as warehouse monkey.
I can't drive.
Did I say I liked dancehall?

Good day.

a wonderful wooden reason
oh no! there's noel emits!

Hello! I'm Noel Emits (actually that's not my real name, it's a reference to John Lilly and 2 Unlimited).

At the moment I grub a living buying and selling records (keeping the best ones for myself of course). It's nice to be able to turn obsession and a lot of 'trivial' knowledge into even modest amounts of kash.

I also play music in a group and by myself, thank fuck - I think this makes my time here worthwhile.

I drink too much coffee and smoke too much weed.

I'm old enough to remember accessing the black dog bbs on a 300 baud acoustic coupler (i was there!). and that's all part of the route here, innit? Then it was freaky trigger, ilm (mostly lurking), blissblog (thanks simon), twanboc/woebot (thanks matt)................................

I have a terrible weakness for Acid Mothers Temple CDs and plan on posting a primer here at some point.

Big up all pioneers and poets.


night tripper
my name is gido, and i dont do much interesting at the moment. one thing im proud of is the low budget saturday night im throwing for mostly north african kids who are refused in every other club here in amsterdam. they love rnb, hiphop, dancehall, some other stuff, and most of all bubblin.. dj chuckie, naffie, etc, did anyone hear the bubblin versions of gabber/hardcore tracks? theres: poing and amsterdam and stereo murder and i lke it loud, and more.

By day I'm a white-coated scientist, toiling over bubbling test-tubes, strange formulas and a serum which will one day make me rich and/or turn me into some kind of superhero.

By night I trawl blogs on the internet, soaking up music and inspiration like a sponge, which I fully intent to wring out into my own blog one of these days.

I'm also plotting the return of a night I used to run with my mates, where bedroom DJs and record collecting anoraks alike were offered 15minute DJ sets throughout the night.

Hello! John from the frozen wastes of Manitoba, Canada, toiling away in the offices of a cross-country music chain. Jazz, Hip-Hop, Metal and unique music of all stripes make life well worth living. Been enjoying the conversations and musical suggestions here for a while in full-on stalker mode and decided to add an enthusiastic voice wherever I can.

It's a lot of fun to see so many interesting voices converging in one place, helping me to track down even more wonderful music to spend my hard-earned money on.


Konnichiwa to all and sundry,

I'm Melmoth. I teach literature and write poetry and listen to music and when I'm not doing that I walk around South London like a faintly puzzled ghost.

My favourite poem today is The Shirt by Robert Pinsky, here:

And thanks to Matt for setting up the great Dissensus :cool:
Hi, I'm a temp, I keep getting offered sales jobs and I'm really unenthusiastic about them so I'm stuck going from office to office but there's a tiny part of me that's getting a kick out of it. I live in Central London. I haven't really worked out what this board is about yet but I liked the top thread in the Politics section so I thought I might as well register.


Me = old old skool ilxor and pre-ironic noize dude, re-locating here after the cultural schism. no blog cos I'm too old and fat. i sell jazz records for a living (that isn't a euphemism) and generally like art/music by drugged up fuckos


BabelTek Generation
I am young, teenage, broken, complicated, eloquent, lucid, loving, loved, seeking, listening, uncomfortable, discontent, fearful, awe-ful, insignificant, omniscient, destructive, reconstructive, rhythmatic, bizarre, thoughtful, talented, pretty, ugly, ill, ill-fated, limitless, powerless, controlling, submissive, passionate, idle, depressed, synthetic, repetitive, panicked, pacified, addicted, overcome, fleeting, permanent, figmented, fragmented, this too shall pass in my reformed soul of united states that fleet the moment they are concieved. blhablahblah i can talk a lot of nothing.


I suppose I should do this, too.

Sometime (longtime?) ILXor, failed blogger, wannabe filmmaker, wannabe wannabe.

I feel bad writing such a trivial post during these sad times, but...well...


Living Too Late
Add one more to the role call...

Brokeman from Vancouver, Canada. Happy to have finally found a spot where I can comment on posts by all the folks who's blogs I've followed over the years. Also a little bit intimidated by the prospect of having to say something... hmm.

I'm a musician of sorts, a DJ and a grad student.

Happy as hell to see all the usual suspects!
