    Lieber Day, I guess in a real life simulation game like "The Sims2" we would be at the stage where the flatmates have talked so much with each other that they become "friends". Please let's become friends again on! Ich habe mich schon für (m)ein neues Profil entschieden. Ich hoffe, es gefällt Dir! Es ist noch nicht so viel vorhanden, aber das musikalische Adventure 2.0 geht weiter. Willkommen in meinem neuen Show Room, der dieses Mal kein Panic Room sein soll. Obwohl ich gegen etwas mehr Looks von Frau Foster nichts einzuwenden hätte...Love, Kat

    Thank you kind sir! I hope we can give and take from one another. ;) I do agree that it sucks that gave up on the radio aspect but I am still addicted to scrobbling. Music is life! one of my favorite DJ's is from Germany, Boys Noize!. Much Love from Cali!

    Hi there :) Nice descriptions of your musical journey. Would I be a copycat if I did something similar on my page? My first memory is of listening to the radio. My first album purchase was Madonna's "True Blue" (on cassette), and first CD purchase was of Stone Temple Pilots' "Purple." (Which, imo, was nowhere near as good as debut "Core," but I digress.) I can't remember the first mp3 I downloaded, but it was probably on Limewire. Not sure any of these choices reflect my personality or musical taste at present moment, but you could probably guess how old I am, hehe.

"The white twisted clouds and the endless shades of blue in the ocean make the hum of the spacecraft systems, the radio chatter, even your own breathing disappear. There is no wind or cold or smell to tell you that you are connected to Earth. You have an almost dispassionate platform - remote, Olympian and yet so moving that you can hardly believe how emotionally attached you are to those rough patterns shifting steadily below."

(Thomas Stafford, astronaut & commander Apollo 10)

...and now the grizzly back-cover blurb about me:

Hmm so you want me to say something about myself... right now?? What is there to say, i like music; i thought we had already established that? perhaps I'm being too obvious (?). What do i like? Well.... it's all laid out in front of you... take a peek. (I'm not doing such a good job describing myself, am I ?). OK, howabout, something more oblique..... how would you like to see my firsts? (calm down, i said firsts, not fists. Concentrate please!)

First Artist I recall listening to: My mum placing me next to the family Decca record player was the easiest way to keep me a quiet & happy baby; And with my head resting gently on the lid, the cooing and crooning of that Irish charmer Val Doonican, would always entice quietly and without protest into the arms of Morpheus. For that I became inseparable from my Decca (and presumably it from me), though at some point I began to grow restless of Val's blarney and yearned for more vicarious thrills.... time to determine my own musical destiny and start buying my own records to listen to. Cue my first purchase, aged 6 and a half.

First 7" Single bought: New Seekers - Beg, Steal or Borrow (1972). A british Eurovision entry and according to Wikipaedia, sung in English no less. Wow! With that amount of talent we should have knocked the jury for 6. "Angleterre nul points!". At age 7 and a half, i decided i was going to marry Lynsay de Paul, but Lynsay never replied to my love troth. After such a crushing disappointment I decided Karen Jones at number 14 was much nicer anyway (in truth she was easier to write on my pencil-case) and so she became THE ONE.

My first LP: Blondie - Parallel Lines (1978 or 79). I'm so proud that I don't have to pretend or lie to you on this one. Today a well-worn LP sits proudly amongst its compatriots. I've never hidden it when guests have come around. And y'know, this is still a great LP to listen to...... "it's 11:59 and i wanna stay alive!". So you're wondering if i was a pretentious little brat, well musically I was quite the early adopter (sometimes a bit intense; but never precocious!) and by age 12 and a half i'd already devoured all punk had to offer me and had jumped bandwagons to the embryonic new wave scenes (it was those ice skating discos, Linda holding me up by my left arm and Sara by my right that converted me).

Gig: The Teardrop Explodes, Lancaster University, Oct 10th 1982. I don't recall much except that for most of the gig, that nice man Mr Cope was balanced very precariously aboard his strange microphone stand/seat construction. There may also been moderate self-mutilation and some auto-erotic honey smearing, but I'm a bit hazy on that. I recall everybody else being much older (maybe I mean taller), and that TTE didn't play Reward. You Bastards! (most vivid recollection of the event...stopping for fish 'n chips on the way home at a chippy on A6 that coincidentally was called "Fish & Chips" - i think!)

CD purchase: quite a difficult one this. i resisted those shiny little silver discs for so long in favour of those larger, huggable, warmer-sounding but electrostatically-friendly vinyl disks. And y'know what, vinyl is so heavy! especially a lot of vinyl but the clincher that converted me was watching Kieran Prendiville demonstrating the indestructibility of CDs by producing a jar of honey and liberally coating a disc in the stuff before inserting into a cd player with a Tomorrows World guarantee of skip-free and flawless playback (whatever CDs were being produced back then...we need more like that nowadays!). But what impressed me the most was thinking Kieran had probably gotten the honey idea from the Julian Cope tour. Errm....where were we, Ah yes, first CD, I'm going with Belle & Sebastian - The Boy With The Arab Strap (BS, i hear you, no BS...errrm yes, BS! OK, I might revise this later but it's OK to say you like B&S isn't it... i mean.... they're quite innocuous & folky. no-one can take issue with a choice like this (?).... moving on .... onto my next first.... which is even more impressive still.

MP3 Download: Deep Blue Something - Breakfast at Tiffanys (Wiki says Uk #1 in 1995. Wiki is never wrong; The great British record-buying masses...possibly). Music on the computer, oh Yes! Sorry family, this is a really important activity i'm engaged in. A milestone in home entertainment no less. No more shall this pc speaker squawk or bleep miserably. Sing little speaker... So now dear family, I'm going to need more computer time to appreciate the revolution that is MP3 before you can have your play with Microsoft Encarta. The novelty effect of audio playback on computer at 96kbps far outstripped the staying power of the actual song. But i played it many many hundreds of times as it was initially my only song.....I gambled on a future where everything would be digital and with mighty stomp from the heel of my hefty jackboot consigned that antiquated Decca gramaphone to oblivion (please, no tears!). The future was here and now and was called Napster and Audiogalaxy and I felt completely vindicated. Overnight EVERYTHING had changed.

OK so now you know a little about me..... please feel free to browse around and....oh sorry, was there something else still? my username? Well...ahem....let's just say I got into a lot of fights when i was younger. So why don't you just call me Day
