Freebase Dali as well. Janszoon is also cool. He always seems happy. While arguing, he always remains composed and civil. I like this too.
Agreed. It's fun to argue with Janszoon because you can't anger him no matter how much you try. Believe me I have.

Hi, I'm Annie. My username used to be TumorAttitude but then I started taking Ritalin and decided to make a new account. Like most interesting people, I spend too much time on the internet. I joined Music Banter the day after Christmas 2 years ago and I was pretty down on my life. Reading my old IRL journal entries from that time freaks me out and brings back a bunch of shitty memories. Reading my old posts does that even more. I was clearly very young, had chronic depression out the ass, and didn't know how to use the swear filter.

I don't want to go back to that place but I feel like this forum made me a better person. I shed my pretension and realized that I didn't really know much about the world or music. I lurked when I felt like I didn't have anything to contribute. I expanded my horizons and jumped out of my comfort zone. And I'm still doing that. I'm 16. I still don't know **** about music but I love it and I want to. My last.fm has 4120 and 194 artists. Thats not enough. Its never going to be enough. I hope I'm never perfect and that I never know everything because that means the end of learning and new experiences and thats really what makes me happy gives me will to live.

I've talked to a lot of amazing, genuine, beautiful people that I want to keep talking to forever. I've never met them but I feel closer to them then most of the people that I physically see every day. If I went into detail, I would just end up repeating the same words over and over again (amazing, caring, sensitive, nice, sweet, smart, brilliant, nipple-biting attractive). So here's my list. Here's my MB family. If you need a kidney, by all means, take one of mine. If you're really desperate and can't make the rent, I'll babysit and mow lawns and paypal the money to you. I love you guys.

Guys, be nice to each other unless you're arguing with somebody that seems to like it as much as you do. Be kind to the n00bs, even if they seem dense. Everybody's dense when the world is new. If you're going to be a dick, at least be funny. Get out of your comfort zone once in a while. Its New Years Eve. I'm going to go slap some paint on my face, then hopefully get wasted.

Annie, your honesty and humor are two reasons I've liked you both as "Tumor" and as "Pavement." I wish I'd been as savvy, thoughtful, and open to reaching out as you are when I was 16! I always like how you acknowledge what you feel are or were flaws in yourself. You also give good advice: be nice to each other.

Neapolitan - I'd describe Neap as a civilized lunatic. I think s/he would come to dinner in the Sunday best, with combed hair and freshly showered, but when engaged in conversation would make, at best, vague reference to topic with disjointed imagery or at worst, non-sequiters.

I have no problem with the child, I just imagine - it - as a bug-eyed Earl type from the Red Meat comic.

Ooo! I can't read this without commenting!

Neapolitan is thoughtful, friendly, funny, quirky, and respectful, a nice human all around. Neapolitan is one of the people I've felt happiest about meeting at MB. I think of him as somewhat shy, but since I am somewhat shy (no, really...I'm an introvert who just *seems* extroverted) I feel I relate to him. I wish Neapolitan would be back at MB more often, but I don't blame him for not being here much, because I don't think many of you really understand him! Why you don't, I don't know. I love Neapolitan's non-sequitors. They represent to me a refreshing and understandable reaction to the weirdness and lunacy of life. Big3, I do agree with you, though, that Neapolitan would probably dress nicely if invited to dinner.

I think Cardboard Adolescent and Neapolitan would get along great.

Speaking of Cardboard Adolescent: this young human's philosophical, compassionate outlook continues to inspire me. He is deep. He doesn't seem interested in superficiality. I like that about his writing and way of thinking. He is a True Philosopher, I feel. A Mystic Musician. He seems interested in living a good, full life that is meaningful, and I like seeing the part of it that plays out here at MB. When I zip up zippers, I do it with greater awareness, thanks to him. When Urban started a thread about MB tossers (a thread I dislike, as I made clear in it), I still remember Cardboard Adolescent wrote sarcastically something like, "Yeay for making fun of people." Cardboard Adolescent makes his views known simply and clearly and I usually agree with them.

I categorize people into three groups: Safe, Semi-Safe, and Scary. I view both Neapolitan and Cardboard Adolescent as Safe.

Here are more of my simplistic categorizations of MB people:

The Big3...Semi-Safe! Sometimes Scary. Sometimes Safe. Mostly Safe. Ergo...Semi-Safe. When he talks softly... SAFE!

Pavement Saw ... Semi-Safe.

Urban Hatemonger ... Semi-Safe to Safe.

Right-Track ... Semi-Safe to Safe. Getting safer all the time. I will never, ever bring him beer, though. The temptation to dash it into his smug face would be too great, and I could never forgive myself for stooping that low.

Terrible Lizard ... Scary.

Tore ... Safe! Safe and sane. I wish the world were filled with 6.5 billion Tore clones.

Dirty ... Semi-Safe to Safe.

Crash ... oddly, Safe. He's a Dubstep Bud.

Freebase Dali ... Semi-Safe.

Adidasss ... Safe!

AwwSugar ... Safe. Safe and funny. Safe and honest. Not afraid to express her views and emotional reactions to what goes on at MB.

Nonsubmissive ... Safe! And pleasant.

Ribbons ... SAFE SAFE SAFE SAFE COME BACK LIZ!!!

Antonio ... Safe. Is he ever mean?

Goblin Tears ... Safe.

Moonlit ... Safe and talkative.

s_k ... Safe and expressive.

Engine ... Safe.

Paloma ... Semi-Safe to Safe.

Thirtiesgirl ... Safe, and I understand where you are coming from, fellow Feminist who is unapologetic about stating her views even if they are unpopular! If I have to hear one more male doctor talk about getting forms copied by "the girls," the adult female receptionists in dead-end, tedious, mind-numbing jobs, I think I'll puke!!! (I heard this once last year, and once was enough.) The point isn't just that referring to underlings at a job as "the girls" is demeaning, but also that we should ask what causes women to be the ones usually choosing such a job that probably wasn't their childhood dream job. My answer: pregnancy and patriarchal society. Pregnancy and raising a child should not interfere with a person's opportunities to establish and maintain a career that fulfills her. Yet societies still have not progressed to the point of allowing humans to procreate while ensuring the burdens and delights of raising children are shared equally among women and men, such that neither gender is affected more detrimentally than the other. This article gives a good example of current issues relating to gender and medical professions: Are There Too Many Women Doctors? - BusinessWeek

Pedestrian ... Safe. She gets to her point quickly, so knowing her viewpoint is easy. I like to read her posts to get a break from mine!

Burning Down ... Safe. Once I saw her pick on someone, a noob, I think, for having resurrected on old thread, so I thought she might be Semi-Safe, but I recategorized her as Safe the longer I watched her actions. She has a nice taste in dresses, too, and an interesting journal.

Jackhammer ... Safe. He reminds me that life is not perfect but is worth living.

StoryMilo ... Safe, and just such a cutie!

Conan ... Safe, of course. Safe and silly.

Unchained Ballad ... Safe...horrified by underarm hair...but Safe.

Dotoar ... Safe ... and an avid, thoughtful musician who seems dedicated to keeping Prog alive singlehandedly. An unapologetic fashion relic from the 70s, no one on MB is quite as fashionable as he is, I think. (Except maybe Vanilla or Savannah.)

I have all the rest of you (whom I know) categorized as Safe, Semi-Safe, or Scary, too, but I'll stop here since I have to go to work and there are a lot of you!
