Of course you're a Pisces, Melinda. How 'bout you, Coela?

he's riffin'
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:22pm melinda:

I guess it makes sense that jazz zodiac would be improvised.
Avatar 10:23pm Little Danny:

I dunno. It sounded authoritative to me. Apparently you're moody, extremely so.

I'm highly sensitive.

Float. Float on.

And like you I love to sleep! But Aries over here.
Avatar 10:26pm Little Danny:

Dean! What's your sign?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:26pm melinda:

I do like to sleep, I wish my sleep was higher quality.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:27pm melinda:

I think I was in college when I first encountered someone who thought sleep was a waste of time. How bizarre.
Avatar 10:28pm coelacanth∅:

fleep! swim on in the water's water!
  10:28pm Dean:

Cancer. Is the answer.
Avatar 10:29pm Little Danny:

Now I wanna hear Cannonball weighing in on Cancers.
Avatar 10:29pm Little Danny:

Coel, please tell me you're a Pisces, fish-friend
  10:30pm Dean:

Well, we love butter.
Avatar 10:30pm coelacanth∅:

Danny -water bearer; but my rising is pisces and it's at least as significant, in my case, as my sun.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:30pm chresti:

Franco is Cancer
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:31pm melinda:

I'm not well-versed in zodiac so I don't know my rising or setting. In Meyers-Briggs I'm INFP.
Avatar 10:33pm Little Danny:

I've submitted myself to the Meyers-Briggs at least three times now and the only part that remains consistent is the "I" What a Capricorn move
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:33pm chresti:

I'm double Leo, moon in Scorpio
Avatar 10:33pm Little Danny:

Well shoot that makes sense now Coel
Avatar 10:34pm coelacanth∅:

chresti, that would really scare some people!
Avatar 10:35pm Little Danny:

Poetry, chresti
Avatar 10:35pm coelacanth∅:

haha Danny why's that?!
  10:36pm Dean:

Strictly speaking, you're not submitting yourself to Meyers-Briggs. It is submitting itself to you.
  10:36pm Dean:

Levels great on a Chromebook.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:36pm melinda:

Meyers-Briggs tests tend to be not very reliable.

Mutual consent when taking a brain quiz is vital.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:39pm chresti:

I don't know much either 'bout 'strology
Avatar 10:44pm coelacanth∅:

i'd decided astrology was mostly or entirely bullshit but then someone gave me my astral portrait for my birthday (it cost some money then, before the www) and i was astounded at the accuracy of it. the explanation of my rising, moon, venus and mars explained a lot that wasn't meshing with only reading about my sun sign.
Avatar 10:45pm Little Danny:

@coel: Like Cannonball & crew, I also like to make shit up about signs. For instance, you're prone to drink, and to high-pitched laughter
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:45pm chresti:

A friend did my chart, back in the 70s
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:45pm fleep:

A dolphin with a mane. That's my sign.
Avatar 10:45pm Little Danny:

Good. Thanks Dean! (re:levels)
Avatar 10:45pm coelacanth∅:

Avatar 10:46pm coelacanth∅:

i did laugh out loud just then, and it wasn't high-pitched!)
  10:47pm Dean:

Big data is the astrology of our time. The pretense to scientific rigor is stronger (and in some respects reliably so) but most of the proclamations about its power are BS.
Avatar 10:47pm Little Danny:

Friends: Tell me your sign and I will tell you about you
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:47pm chresti:

I tend to laugh very loudly
  10:47pm Dean:

"You're the kind of person who reveals more or less intimate details about yourself."
Avatar 10:49pm Little Danny:

Dean. You're a Cancer. Thus you are a slob. But you also keep your car spotless. Weird.
Avatar 10:50pm coelacanth∅:

i don't laugh loudly, in fact usually i just smile; but i'm a natural baritone so a high-pitched laugh would freak me out , as much as it would others
...i don't drink that much!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:50pm chresti:

Wow! Just like Franco!
Avatar 10:51pm Little Danny:

Nervous laugher over here, who's with me?
  10:51pm Dean:

"car spotless"...really?
Avatar 10:52pm Little Danny:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:53pm chresti:

I have a maniacal laugh-I've been told
Avatar 10:53pm coelacanth∅:

my car's spotless.
...or, no - it's so thoroughly spotted that it's not spotted anymore.
  10:53pm Dean:

Well, you're right about the fact that I have a car, so there's that.
Avatar 10:53pm Little Danny:

When I'm REALLY nervous my laughter has an almost hysterical quality to it
Avatar 10:54pm coelacanth∅:

chresti hahaha!
  10:54pm Dean:

My 91YO mom now cackles. I tell her she's cackling, which only provokes more cackling.
Avatar 10:55pm Little Danny:

See Dean? Now do you believe in astrology?
Avatar 10:55pm coelacanth∅:

okay now i really want an audio clip of both chresti's and Danny's laughter
Avatar 10:55pm coelacanth∅:

...and Dean's mom
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:56pm fleep:

Star for Strung Out, great sounds
  10:56pm Dean:

If I can look it up in the dictionary, I believe it.
  10:57pm Dean:

^in it.

For instance, I don't believe in sprqluigwe.
Avatar 10:57pm Little Danny:

Thanks fleep! Good tastes there
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:00pm fleep:

Gravitational waves cause the fabric of space time to ripple, so anything's possible.
Avatar 11:00pm coelacanth∅:

Dean i think it's "sprjqluigwee". there's the problem.
  11:02pm Dean:

Never once said I didn't believe in sprjqluigwee.
Avatar 11:03pm coelacanth∅:

fleep are you sure your sign isn't "nude sun-bathers beyond this point"? (with a "no dogs allowed on beach" rising?)
Avatar 11:04pm coelacanth∅:

Dean, good point.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:10pm fleep:

My sign at the moment is Trader Joe's Gingerbread Spice Granola
Avatar 11:13pm coelacanth∅:

mmm. i used to eat tj's "just the clusters" ginger/almond(?) flavor a lot
Avatar 11:13pm coelacanth∅:

  11:13pm Dean:

My sign at the moment is VACANCY and the NO keeps flashing off and on.
Avatar 11:14pm Little Danny:

Haha, yes Dean!
Avatar 11:15pm still b/p:

There's 'nother good burlesque name: Ginger Something.
  11:16pm Dean:

Who needs burlesque when you have Ginger Baker?
  11:16pm Dean:

...in a band called Cream, no less!
Avatar 11:17pm Little Danny:

Well well well. Here's still b/p!

i've rarely baked ginger. he should thank me.
  11:20pm Dean:

He's Levon Helm in a funhouse mirror.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:21pm chresti:

and acting. We watched a documentary-Beware of Mr. Baker

Haha coel!
Avatar 11:22pm coelacanth∅:

well -i used to go out with a "ginger" and she got pretty baked without my help.
Avatar 11:23pm still b/p:

Ginger has the look of a fella that mighta had a little cult family back in the day. But he was more cantankerous and volcanic than smoothly charismatic.
  11:24pm Dean:

But "ginger baker" refers to the person/agent that bakes ginger, not to the ginger who is thereby baked.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:26pm chresti:

What's Ginger Baker's sign?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:26pm melinda:

Americans have taken to saying ginger instead of red-head over the last few years. At least on the internet.
Avatar 11:26pm coelacanth∅:

Avatar 11:27pm coelacanth∅:

or leo
Avatar 11:28pm coelacanth∅:

he seems much more like a leo

Leo. August 19.

Oh yeah, I thought July
Avatar 11:30pm Little Danny:

OMG still b/p. Totally. Those eyes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:31pm chresti:

He's got nasty rheumatoid arthritis
Avatar 11:32pm Little Danny:

I've noticed that too Melinda. Growing up, the worst insult thrown in the direction of my hair was "carrot-top." Didn't hear "ginger" until the aughts
Avatar 11:32pm coelacanth∅:

melinda i would hate that -and i do if the person is british because the likelihood of the person being an actual "ginger" hating bigot is much higher; but i've had full-on red-haired girl friends and friends who refer to themselves as such.
- it still bothers me a little though. i still know it was borne out of hatred & fear.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:35pm chresti:

Red hair is highly regarded around here
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:37pm melinda:

My impression was that it's one of those adoptions of a British phrase because it's British, whether conscious or not. Yeah, I hear American red-haired women describing themselves with it too. Maybe it evokes something positive for them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:38pm melinda:

Ginger=earthy warmth and spice
  11:38pm Dean:

That Guardian article is pretty typical shallow journalism. It treats an intense personality as somehow wrong or deviant. But we're all angry, we all bitch and moan. It's our prerogative. So when the article quotes GB: "Then one day some friends took me to one side and pointed out that it might be wiser if I calmed down. I respected them enough to listen – and not throw anything."...I think, well, shoot, that's a grounded person who responds sensibly to personal criticism.
Avatar 11:39pm coelacanth∅:

Danny i didn't know you had red hair! it's not that evident in your avatar
Avatar 11:41pm Little Danny:

It used to be an even brighter bit of red. I was luckily never one of those fire-engine redhead types though. Horrid, terrible people.
Avatar 11:42pm coelacanth∅:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:42pm melinda:

Deeply red hair is impressive.
Avatar 11:43pm coelacanth∅:

damn i love this song
Avatar 11:44pm Little Danny:

Avatar 11:44pm still b/p:

Check this one from a few years ago, and the questions still cook regarding how much slack to offer or how much to invest in interacting with such a person.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:45pm melinda:

@Dean when I read that I thought he sounded ok.
Avatar 11:45pm Little Danny:

Sometimes I pitch this track down for even more drone power
Avatar 11:46pm coelacanth∅:

Danny it's most impressive that you made it through that period without being burned alive or experimented on!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:46pm melinda:

@Danny awww, peak chub! haha.
  11:49pm Dean:

I'm not sure I trust that writer's observations, still b/p.
Avatar 11:50pm coelacanth∅:

i dunno Ginger Baker's appearance doesn't phase me much. am i the weird one?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:51pm fleep:

eventually everyone looks like an apple left in the sun too long, you just have to keep living
Avatar 11:52pm coelacanth∅:

i mean, yes he's intense - to match his intense personality; but i just don't think about that.
Avatar 11:52pm Little Danny:

@coel: These days I generally work to maintain a wan pastiness but unlike some redheads I can actually catch a tiny bit of a tan if I really go for it
