Default Signed up a while back, never introduced myself

Hey folks. I signed up in September 08 (didn't realize it was that long ago!) but never introduced myself. Nor did I post much...just one post and a few poll votes, really.

I'm always looking for places to kill time online, and music is my favorite hobby. So here I am, ready to meet some new folks and discuss and discover music.
