I never miscue a record. I am punctual, well-prepared, and dislike clutter. Outgoing and helpful, I'm always appropriately dressed. I do not behave erratically and have excellent penmanship. My CD's never skip, and I am in good health. I like all the notes, in any order.

"Phenolphthalein has been used for over a century as a laxative, but is now being removed from over-the-counter laxatives because of concerns over carcinogenicity. Thymolphthalein is a related laxative made from thymol." - en.wikipedia.org...

"Thymol also provides the distinctive, strong flavor of the culinary herb thyme, also produced from T. vulgaris." - en.wikipedia.org...

You probably won't get a straight answer from us weirdos, @Cid, but I'll tell you this: If you're not already, you should also check out Daniel Blumin's fantastic show, as well as Fabio, Scott W., and Marcel. And if you like relaxing electronic and synth-y madness, check out Carol's "Serious Moonlight Sonatas" show.

WHAT UR HEARING NOW IS NOT "ETHNIC" U CAN DISCRIMINATE THE DISTINCT GENRE. BRYCE'S "USUAL" IS THE SUBLIME "UNUSUAL". I DONT LEAVE COMMENTS BUT NOW THAT IM HERE I SEE ITS TRENDY TO BE CUT-THROATY AS "CUTE". ANY VALID ANSWERS OUT THERE? STUPID-ASS NEED NOT.

there are a million sort-of categories, and most of this music is somewhere in between them.... "avant garde" "free improv" "experimental" "electroacoustic" etc.
