As a rule, I don't like electronica, but I do quite like Daft Punk. Their soundtrack for Tron is one of my favourite albums to listen to.

^Daft Punk? I agree, they're legends. Similarly, I love Deadmau5.

Skillrex or whatever is the least of the offenders, but still not good IMO. All of this is open for opinion, but I used to spin and I take the new wave of digital mods as offense.
Wow, Skrillex is usually top of the hate-list. I just seem to find something in his music that I can't get anywhere else.

The way a lot of Djing has gone completely electronic is just like electronic books IMO. It helps in some cases, but it takes away some of the feeling of reality.

Random fact? I'm sort of hi-jacking this thread...

A natural progression yes but I hate change and that is your random fact as well.

I just ordered a pastrami sandwich and Diet Pepsi from the pizza parlor for lunch. They would not deliver it because the cost was to little, so I also ordered a spaghetti dinner with extra meatballs and sausage for later on tonight.

I had 20+ alcoholic drinks last night and remained sober enough to supervise toddlers and 'stay on the ball'

Thank goodness that sentence trailed off. I was tensed halfway through it in anticipation of some sort of gruesome farming anecdote.

The word neckbone makes me writhe. Red wine makes it stop.

Over a decade ago, I invented a sporting event that is now enjoyed at bike (motorbike) rallies around the UK. Admittedly, the inspiration for this ultimate test of mental, physical and psychological toughness was accomplished after consuming well more than a gallon of cider, nevertheless I can take pride in the enormous pleasure it has given to thousands....

...what is it?, I hear you cry...

...naked marquee-pole climbing!

It's tough on the way up, racing in front of a crowd of baying bikers, but boy can the friction burns test the athlete on the way down!

I have a live in writer lover for the first part of the winter who's good with my scientist lover visiting every month and my homesteading lover visiting every couple of months. Random Fact: Polyamory is great!

You could say that Kas. They still won't be as good as you, red, and Syn all pounding away on manual typewriters at kiddy desks in my library like we all discussed last year, but luckily my library is quite large.
