Re: Introduce Yourself

Goodness me, you've been suffering a long time with your back, much longer than I have.
My doctor said that he wouldn't recommend surgery for my problem except as a very last resort, something to do with the position of the nerves, he also told me that it'll gradually get worse over time, I appreciate him being straight with me about it as I feel it's better to know what to expect, it can be quite depressing as you know, but still on the bright side God loves us and the sun was shining quite a few times today, the sunset in Carbis Bay was lovely tonight, amazing cloud formations and sunbeams shooting through, I love the sky down here, it's so open and vast and changes so much.
Take care, kind regards Joe.

Re: Introduce Yourself

I'm sure it was Sand point as the name sounds familiar, if we're up that way again I'll be sure to let you know.
Yes I love the scenery down here in Cornwall too, but I also find a certain strange kind of beauty in industrial landscapes, and the sea always amazes me regardless of it's colour.
In the mid nineties we lived in Southampton in a cottage next to Southampton water with views of Fawley oil refinery and Exxon chemical plant, at night the chimneys would be blazing with fire and there were a myriad of tiny lights all sparkling it reminded me of the cityscape scenes in Blade Runner and there was a definite kind of strange beauty to it all, but in saying that we wouldn't want to live there again as we're happy here.
You know what? we haven't been to the Eden Project since 2004, I know it must have changed a lot in that time, we must go again!
I've kind of learned to live with the back problem, it's a huge restriction on things I can do at times, but I just try and manage it as practically as possible because I know I can't change it, thanks for your thoughts, kind regards, Joe.

I was in Southampton in the mid-nineties too! St Mary's, student house -heart of the red light district with a gay club on one side and a cheeky little brothel / crack den on the other. I liked Southampton, though -the parks ringing the centre are supposed to be a bit dodge but I spent many a pleasant afternoon there.

It's easy to overlook Cornish industrial history coming as a tourist, but I suppose it's everywhere -we did glimpse the old spoil heaps apparently known as the 'Cornish Alps' around St Austell, pretty spectacular....

Re: Introduce Yourself

Small world ain't it?
That club must have been the Magnum then, I have some bad memories from around that area but also some good ones (I met and married my wife there) I lived in Denzil Avenue quite a few times and worked in the Tiberius Casino (remember that place?)I mainly drank in the Dorchester and the Onslow and sometimes the Portswood Hotel which later on became the Hobbit.
I lived in Southampton (most of the time) from 1976 until 1999, I saw it change a lot in that time, and now when I go to visit I don't recognise the place, it's so different and it feels different too.
I go every year coz my Mum's still there, I guess I'll always have a soft spot for the place what with having spent so many years there.
My wife saw Stereolab play at the Joiners pub in St. Marys in 1993, wish I'd been there too.
Take care man, Joe.

Me I'm a choreographer and a songwriter with two children. Currently I reside in the sticks because I seem to thrive here and I prefer the privacy and the laid back, friendly manner of the people.
I enjoy reading (esp. philosophy) listening to classical and jazz some pop, I listen to the college radio to stay current and I enjoy writing songs or trying to write songs and of course my job which is creating ballets.
I also enjoy reading wikipedia.



oh and I like to work out, c & W dancing, and karaoke on Tuesdays!!!



First heard Lab in a movie theatre in 2000 while waiting for movie. Refractions. Was absolutely on a mission to find out who this band was felt like I had finally found music that epitomized my pop music ideals and I was absolutely right about that. I don't know how I missed them during the '90s; glad I finally found them. I think they are the best band ever.




I want to change my name to Wolfgang, but it's too fashionable and I can't stop crying over it. It's unfortunate for me because I'm out of tissue. (pronounced TISS OOO )

Re: My Ray Liotta Impersonation

It was really ugly.
I was hanging out with this sergeant of detonation next to the airport partying all night to the sound of helicopters.

Fill in the blanks. nothing sexy.no.
