I exist too.

General Introduction

Good evening. We've got an action packed night for you here on the Thames. But first, here's a rotten old BBC programme.

Hullo one and all! I am in fact, if only temporarily, back from my six month hootoo vacation. My name is Strider, and I don't bite. Or something like that.

The Post If I've written something you like, hooray for me. If I haven't, I'm sorry.

Please come talk to me if you'd like. You may find that I'm a humour inclined procrastinating Jewish anglophile peripatetic bass playing photographer obsessed with all manifestations of the terpsichore muse. Or, if you feel like it, you may find out something completely different. Only by actually talking to me will you ever know. So give it a shot: spend a few minutes and write a word or two.

A little about my tastes: I read lots of Sci/Fi, Fantasy and Literature. Specifically, this includes the works of the late DNA (of course), JRR Tolkien, CS Lewis, Charles Dickens, Bill Watterson, Oscar Wilde, Gary Larson, David Eddings, and Robert Jordan.

I listen to just about anything. However, the general populus would probably find it more useful to have a list. So, as absolutely and utterly unrepresentative it might be, here goes nothing: The Beatles, Bob Dylan, TMBG,* Pink Floyd, The Who, The Doors, Cream, dIRE sTRAITS, Jimi Hendrix, CCR, Moxy Fruvous, The Clash, Jethro Tull, Jane's Addiction, Beastie Boys, Third Eye Blind, Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Rolling Stones, (early) No Doubt, Sublime, Bob Marley, and UB40. Its a start.


If you or any cool pages aren't on any of these lists and think you should be, tell me! I probably just spaced out. I'm experimenting with not having a friends section, as it's kind of redundant with the friends feature.

Useless Places

Not to be confused with "Informational Places" or "Fun Places," this section contains only links to groups and the such that were on my old page:

|Brunel Fanclub |Keepers |Royal h2g2 Procrastinators Society |The Guild of Naked Astronauts |Northeastern Researchers group |United Friends of h2g2 space |People for Peace |The Church of the BEATLES |Ignored Musicians Guild |h2g2 Musicians Guild |Campaign to rename Thursday "Thing" |The Campsite |The Mac-Users' Orchard |Operation Human-Shock |Area 42 |Knights of h2g2 |Willem Love Collective |The Terranic Army

Virtual People (Also no order)

|Rat |Spaceman Spiff |The Shee |Old Uncle Zarniwoop |The Theory |Lara Croft |Yankee-Shoes

Not to imply that they don't actually exist, but only that I know them through h2g2. I originally swore never to do this, but I find myself wanting these links. If you think you should be on this list and aren't just tell me. It's just a list of people's spaces, not a list of all the people I like. smiley - ok

My pledge to you: If you click on the discuss entry button below I will respond. I'll even be nice. Surely some thought or other must have crossed your mind as you read this. If so, simply click on the button.
