Wink Here is a home, in my home

Hello, everybody.

I am more than happy to be a member of this community.

Like you, I have great passion for music.

I enjoy a relatively wide variety of music from a relatively long span of history.

I love to share, discuss and write about music I love.

I listen to music without vocals, mostly.


Other than that, I have been living in Asia for six years. I live in GuangZhou, China; about 2.5 hours NW of Hong Kong. I am a DJ here.

Talk to you soon.

-P.B.-

P.S. I can't give or access any links from YouTube because it is blocked in China.

Welcome to MB.
Favorite bands?

Roger-that on the Youtube thing. I didn't realize you were located there when I PM'd you. Nor did I know China blocks Youtube. Damn... The whole tube?

Facebook is also blocked there, and some other social networking sites.

So, welcome to MB! Where are you from originally?

Wow. China is mean for no reason. Even Hitler probably wouldn't have minded Facebook.

Yeah. One of my professors was there over the summer and she said you could get on Facebook sometimes, if you were lucky enough, through an offshore proxy-server or something like that. But she also said that most proxy-servers are blocked there too.

I have not been to Kitchener in a while - it's a bit out of my way - but it's a nice place

Don't worry. You don't need YouTube to help us overthrow the Chinese government.
