    Hyfi and Peabody aren't the same guy.

    Yech isn't human and, therefore, doesn't count.

    I miss DarrenH, Mike, and Demetrio.

    You sure?

    And as for you other imposters, you weren't on the mailing list. Get it together, men!

    Wait, that didn't come out right! Hey, I have some compilation mailing lists too, did a sort against yours and this is what happened ...

    Red Red Meat - There's a Star Above the Manger Tonight
    Bowery Electric - Beat
    American Analog Set - The Golden Band
    Songs: Ohia - Axxes and Ace
    Palace Music - Viva Last Blues
    Geraldine Fibbers - Lost Somewhere Between the Earth and My Home
    Sparklehorse - Vivadixiesubmarinetransmissionplot
    Edith Frost - Calling Over Time
    Jim O'Rourke - Eureka
    Wheat - Hope and Adams
    Portishead - Dummy
    Silver Jews - American Water
    Olivia Tremor Control - Dusk at Cubist Castle
    Yo La Tengo - I Can Hear the Heart Beating as One
    Stereolab - Emperor Tomato Ketchup
    Built to Spill - Perfect From Now On
    PJ Harvey - Dry
    Tricky - Maxinquaye
    Richard Buckner - Devotion + Doubt
    Laika - Silver Apples of The Moon

    Oops, that's not right either, that's a best of the 90s list, and a damn good one too, let me try that again, here's a few that don't show on your comp list, though hard to compare since your list isn't even sorted, and some of them may be alternates, hard to keep track over the years ...

    Heard from Rae recently, he's in the 2015 comp. cc posts some over at SHTV, Mike already stopped by, I sent out a bunch of PMs when I made that comp post, but not too much back. Still, getting close to reality, might almost have enough songs, have to check, maybe let it go on for another month.

    In fact, how do I know that YOU aren't a woman?

    Bernd sent me several 12AX7 tubes. They were all singles to be used in my Bellari phono preamp which requires only one tube. I still use the Ei gold pin. He was/is a perfect gentleman (as noted by Feanor). I remember that recipe too.

    Oh, I have old private messages from Lensman and Resident Loser (and the banned one markw).

    I'm sure. I don't have half the audio system he has, but if I did, I might be him.

    Although MarkW was banned, he isn't who he appeared to be. We have spent many good times together with the wives over dinner and drinks and music. Unfortunately, he is currently battling Esophageal Cancer. Wish him well!

    I think perhaps people are more self-indulgent online than in person. MarkW was aggressively rude to me personally and others too I'd say.

    He was the same with me also, and old threads will show how we banged heads many many times. After a while we figured out we had much in common and became friends. I didn't ask anyone to change their opinion, just to wish him well in his recovery.

    Indeed, I certainly wish him the best in his battle with cancer.

    Oh no. I wish him well. While not attempting to defend his impact on others here, I really enjoyed what he brought to the board. I hope he defeats his cancer.

    Looks like a lot of people just dropped in to see what's up. Timing, huh? Trust everyone is doing well, jamming, and generally enjoying life. Now playing: Florasongs by The Decemberists.

    Send my best wishes, if possible. Yeah, he could be a rascal on the boards, but we exchanged cordial private messages.

    I was the same with YECH, we exchanged several compilations and insults. He seemed civil enough to me until I insulted him a bit too far (imagine THAT) and he disappeared.

    Hi, Jim Clark! Wow, long time!
