Maybe it's the way you present yourself that creates this trend. And........I'm done here.


Without ever reading a post new_world_order has ever posted, I can still agree with that.

I SUPPOSE that, uh, you know, it applies to ePlaya, too... I guess... even if you are an trollish asshole...

So, POST ON, you fuckin' troll...

Now, that's settled... can we get back to Da Bar...?

Well, let's just also that there's an unfortunate choice of log-in issue, too. At least for those of us who are older or have a historical memory. Now, the name could be a deliberate tweaking of sensibilities, and who am I to say don't do it, but when I do something like that I keep in mind that that sort of thing can offend or hurt people, deeply, and that it's my responsibility to remember that I made the first "move."

Has Evan left the building?

Will Evan join us at the burn?

Will the owner of the segway be reunited with his mobility device?

Will Larry Harvey come up with a better theme for 2012?

Will C.F.M. and TnT ever return to eplaya?

Who is the Most Interesting Eplayan in the World?

Stay tuned for the answers to these questions and many more...

Yup. Right now my camp position is in a bit of flux, you may have noticed some slight ticketing drama, what isn't right now? Otherwise I would give you coordinates.

I like a spirited debate. Digital/computer art is a big issue for me. This discussion actually made me break out some old Warp and Ninjatunes artists, listen to things I had put on the shelf for a while. It is always fun to put a face on an internet post.

Beware: I intend to convert you to the electronic dark side! I have done this before with you guitar & vocals people.
