Hi charters! I'm a sweet'N sassy gay male that just loves music. I'm on Billboard every Thursday morning to catch the latest singles charts. I was born in Scotland (a baby upon moving to the US) and have no memory of my biirth place. My mother says I was born in the same hospital as Sheena Easton and I believe her. Smile It's all good.

I'm very fun loving and easy to get along with. I adore people with good qualities and a big heart. I'm liberal to anything with the exception of racism, homophobia and such. I love to kick back over a beer and do some video games. I cannot stand politicians and that's me in a nutshell. Smile I am very big on animal rights and adore my feline friends. I don't do television at all, with the exception of my soap (One Life To Live) and a childhood obsession (Doctor Who). That obsession still exists in full form.


I love music and always will. I was a child charting music at 9 yrs. old. The early 80's started it for me. I'd be playing Pac-Man in the arcade and the radio was always on. Who could forget that? 1982-1983 are my ALL time favorite years. Music was on fire then!
I have such memories, good and bad.

Well, this is me now .... welcome to my forum and may the best memories go your way. Oh, I'm the stripper, so take a guess lol.

Hi everyone.

I'm a easy going and down to earth brit who loves music, games and sport - it keeps me happy! I'm from sunny England, born and bred and will probably be here forever (even though the weather isn't the greatest).

Basically, I love music - any style and from any decade. If I'm online playing games, I have music playing in the background. If I'm reading or cleaning, I have music channels on the tv and if I go out shopping, I ALWAYS have my mp3 player on my phone going.

I'm hoping to meet other music lovers here and look forward to making even more great friends!

Hello everyone!

I'm a fun-loving, easy-going, take-very-little-seriously kind of person. I love to laugh and have fun with my family and friends. I enjoy reading, cooking, writing, playing games of all kinds, music, television (especially classic TV and British comedy), watching movies, working with computers and studying history (the Old West, the US Civil War, Ancient Egypt and English history are my favorite topics).

I love animals of all kinds. I currently have six pets that are more like children to me instead of pets. I have two birds, a Cockatiel (Tweety) and parakeet (Angus) and four dogs, a Saint Bernard (Max), a Chow Chow (Brandi), a Saint Bernard/mutt mix (Bernard) and a Golden Retriever/Leonberger mix (Lucy).

I have a pretty eclectic taste in music. I grew up listening to groups like Hall & Oates, Fleetwood Mac and The Eagles. My favorite music is from the 70's and 80's but I like music from pretty much every decade. Some of my favorite bands/artists are: The Eagles, Morrissey, The Smiths, The Bravery, Frank Sinatra (I adore Frank!), Bryan Adams, The Rolling Stones, Stevie Nicks, Fleetwood Mac, Rick Vito...the list could go on and on! Very Happy

I'm looking forward to meeting everyone and having a lot of fun!!

Kinda shy but here goes.... I live near the RocknRoll Hall of fame and music is my passion. I enjoy most types(not a fan of country) but favorites are Pantera, Tool(2nd album),& older Depeche Mode. Pretty much anything heavy on the minor scale I gravitate towards. I used to be a huge Duranie and I imagine all my 12 inch Japanese import mixes are melting somewhere in the attic Embarassed

Greetings.

I'm in the UK and was asked if I would like to join here by Adric - so I did. Looks quite good, hope it takes off.

I'm obsessed with music, massive fan of Morrissey and The Smiths but love all genres of music, even have a soft spot for Kitty Wells and Winifred Hatwell Laughing

I've just turned 40 and feel old. Mind you, that's only in body as I have the mind of a 16 year old - reminds me of the Morrissey lyric - "On the day that you mentality catches up with your biology, come round cos I wan't the one I can't have and it's driving me mad" bounce From this info you will gather I do favour 80's music over all others.

Pleasure to be here Very Happy

Welcome to Adric's Place, Ergon!

I'm a huge fan of Morrissey and The Smiths as well. A good friend got me hooked on their music a couple of years ago and they've quickly become my favorites.

Hi I came over here after Reading that BA has been removing your posts,I do not usually post very often although I have responded to one or two of your posts in the past.

I just wanted to come here to let you know that you have always been my favorite poster on that site. and BA has been going downhill for me for a while hardly anyone ever posts over there at all anymore and if you stop posting it is gonna be like a ghost town over there.

About me I am 35 year old female married with 2 kids and 6 cats. Music I love most types of music out there I guess one might think I am confused LMAO. I have everything in my ipod(my prized possesion) from Air supply to zz top and everything in between.depending on my mood I could be listening to music written in the 60s or a new song just released last week. If I tried to list my favorite groups or songs I would be here all day trying to figure out witch one to choose. LOL I could not even begin to tell you what my favorite song or group is because it all depends on the mood I am in when you ask me.

I spend most of my free time doing things with my husband and kids who are 9 and 7 years old. We love to watch basketball and spend the majority of our summers in the swimming pool(its HOT in Phoenix) after my ipod my dvr is my 2nd most prized possesion. I love shows that go off the beaten path even though I watch crime and hospital shows there are so many of them same old thing different cast of characters. I love LOST and I am so sad that there is only one more season 5 seasons worth of questions I sure hope they can answer them all in one season. We really enjoyed Eureka and Kyle xy but kyle got the axe and it looks like eureka is gone now too. Gosh I miss Sliders one of the best shows sci-fi ever put out.I sure hope Leverage does not get cancelled or after lost ends next season there will be nothing left for me to watch. Actually there were acouple of new shows this season Fringe,Eleventh hour,and life on mars.life on mars got the axe,but not sure if the other 2 will be back next season I sure wish I could be a Nielson family and get my opinion heard.

not sure why I just spouted off all that stuff about my tv preferences I really just wanted to come here and tell Adric that I will very much miss his posts on BA

flower Welcome aboard everyone! I'm so glad you have joined, especially at such an early stage in this forum. I have some truly fun plans for this little site as it progresses and hope that you will all bare with me. I've still got 26 years of charting to do to be officially caught up. Razz
I want this site to be very laid back and easy going. Please feel free to start any new discussions on anything in the world. It's very liberal here and am open to anything. Comments and suggestions are always welcome. I know you all from a few various forums and am intrigued to have such a wonderful group of people here.

Okafor, thank you so much for your kind words regarding BA. I regretted leaving that site, though it was time. It just hasn't been the same in a few years now. I was stunned to see how narrow minded it has become over time. (I won't say what BA stands for as I don't want to publicly diss another site), but your words meant a lot to me. Ofcourse I will miss it there as well as some wonderful people. In the end, the petty politics got the best of it, it seems.

Kindest Regards,
Adric

Just want to wish you luck on your new site!

I am a big poster on BadgeAddicts and a fan of your posts Adric. You will be missed there. I have also had many of my post removed in an almost random manner, its become very frustrating to post on there. Especially frustrating for me when they removed my posts on the mini mall, which were in no way violating anyone's rules. If you can't complain about the mini mall on badge addicts where can you complain about it?!

I am 47 years, have a long history of bad stuff happening to me, lol, like a lot of badgeaddicts. I am a graphic artist. And currently selling my house and moving somewhere else yet to be found.

Over the years I have been friends lots of different people and don't care much about what they "do" or "don't do." I like people for who they are and I like smart funny people over dumb serious ones.

I have a collection of 1300+ cds, and I am too old-fashioned and have been too busy to pay much attention to music the last few years but I love the old stuff, especially new wave, punk and ska. I have NIN, Frank Sinatra, and Les Negres Vertes in my CD changer right now, I don't care when the music was produced, what color hair the lead singer had, or whether or not its cool, I just care about the music. I don't have many computer music files because I am not a fan of the sound quality, though I know it has gotten better.

Hello there. I too was invited here by Adric, on account of my similar chart-type interest, and because I'm happy to copy the relevant UK top 40s from a book I own. The fact that I bought a book which listed the top 40s from 1960 to 1995 probably tells you what kind of a nerd I used to be, though I'm getting better.

I couldn't put a ballpark figure on the number of CDs and cassettes I own, even a few dozen LPs. I try to lend a fair ear to any style of music. There's no band no irredeemable that they won't someday produce the record that makes me go "now that's good!"

I'm 31, single, conservative (I guess) but left-leaning on some issues.
