Same for me, except I wasn't by myself, it was a tandem jump. the feeling you get up there in the sky with nothing but wind and clouds. It was simply beautiful. I enjoyed it so much I'm going to take the classes to go solo and maybe one day be an instructor.

You can take any pretty loser who can't sing who has a good smile and sells records and make him a star
Just look at ANYONE on the charts today
We lost a part of music history, a legend, and the greatest pop music artist there ever will be.
The things Michael created on “Thriller”, “Off the Wall”, and “Bad” will never be matched.
By anyone ever.
Michael Jackson was the best.
People believed in Michael Jackson who didn't believe in Jesus
And that my friends is a legend.
God Bless Michael Jackson's music, his soul, and his legend
That can never be replaced.
Rest in Peace Sir
God bless your soul -

My vacation is pretty much over, but I had lots of fun on the road for a couple of weeks.

However, the last part of it was a bit tiring - anyone recall the old Punish My Heaven mondegreen "vacation with my parents, a lifetime in hell"? Well, I topped that - had vacation with my grandparents.

I don't get a vacation. I just spent 3 weeks doing research in Kansas, practically starving because there was nothing but fast food, and nearly dying of heat exhaustion running in 100 degree weather in spite of a water bottle.

Now I'm back reading and writing again! At least it's like 68 here.

Ha, I'm on permanent vacation right now. I work with computer games for a living, done a bit too much overtime and have got double RSI for my trouble, so the doc has signed me off. Got the game finished though...

@Zach.Zhang: Yeah it's proper. That's surprising. What's more surprising is how much they look alike. It's like seeing Nicolas Cage in a black metal outfit.

@Villain: That sounds fun. Especially the last part.

RampageSword, did you jump on the 26th? I didn't get to because of wind, but it's rescheduled for Aug 30.

The scale goes like this:

Japanese > European > US > Latin > other
As far as I know, Japanese ones do not have better recording quality... Japan use the same source as other countries.

Japanese ones often have bonus tracks. That's why they're more desired.

@ Zach.Zhang, thank you, as you are correct about recording quality(there is but one way to press a CD)
that knucklehead from CR, thinks USA CDs are cheaply made or some confused ramble about something he knows nothing about -

The combination of Rusty coming back after such a long time to post that and his avatar made me: a) want to cry, b) want to hug and kiss him.
I don't live in Athens and i'm fine. I'm honestly moved by the concern.

We had huge fires like that a couple of years ago, that burnt a huge part of Greece closer to where i live. This bunch started about 3 days ago, and it's very disconcerting because it's so close to homes (some burnt already) and the capital. I was on vacation in Ithaca when it started and only found out the extent of it now that i returned. The most frustrating thing is that something similar happened not so long ago, so you would expect it to be dealt with faster and more efficiently. It's really hard to say though how much of it is political inefficiency and how much of it is to blame on conditions.

Oh, I have that effect on all half-fish.

I was living in Melbourne when all the bushfires were raging around Victoria and yes, disconcertion was one of many prominent emotions as well. I'm glad to hear you're all right. Here's hoping the fires burn themselves out sooner rather than later.

Five things.

a) I quite randomly stumbled across this nostalgia-rich place just today, a place which I had completely, totally and entirely forgotten about for over 5 years and at which I've just spent a good hour or so in an utter bliss of reminiscence.

b) I quite randomly spotted a typo in Rahvin's forum rules thread.

c) I have no idea which of a) and b) brings me greater joy.

d) I have been laying down lots of lettered lists of late.

e) This forum could do with more alliteration.

f) I sometimes struggle at counting.

After briefly considering and discarding a thousand and one retorts, I'll just give the actual reason: I was looking for the Now Feeling thread, forgetting all of those Now... threads were condensed into this one.

Ok, contraction. Like F U, right?
No, thanks for pointing it out, I was led to believe one thing meant another. By dark powers. That be.

So, I'm going to slightly break one of the forum rules and post something out of place. I feel that this is wholly relevant discussion, in more than simply a "check out this band" fashion.

You know what's totally awesome? Italians?

What else? Dwarves.

I think I found the rest of rahvin's clan, and a good round of mocking that which we love (aside from rahvin) while we're at it.

I give you...Nanowar.
