This message is going to be kept at the top of my journal as a quick introductory message in case anyone casually browses over to this journal and is wondering what makes the writer tick.

Firstly... I read quite a lot of web comics, and have been having a bit of a hunt around for live journals or RSS feeds which look likely to give notice of updates to the comics I'm keeping track of. So, if you write a web comic and find this journal has added you as a friend or joined your community, that's why. If you don't want weird people from obscure foreign countries reading your journal or community, please let me know and I will cease and desist from doing so forthwith.

The nature of this journal is mainly for communication with friends. About two thirds of the posts are public, and tend to be reviews of the popular culture I enjoy: web comics, science fiction TV, rock music (with a particular interest in `eighties post-punk and "indie" music, especially that recorded in New Zealand). I have more obscure interests, as well, which I discuss rather less often: cartography, werewolves, philately and "odd stuff" in general. I tend to keep most of my older archived posts, and anything dealing with work or personal matters, under "friends lock"; if you wish to read them, please comment here.

Everything here is just my opinion, and is offered free of charge and is worth precisely what is paid for it. There are no insights into the fundamental nature of the universe contained herein.

Any reader is welcome to:
(1) Ask me anything you like about one of my user icons.
(2) Ask me anything you like about one of my interests.
(3) Ask me any question you want to ask, and I will give it the answer it deserves and post it as a reply to the question.

Pleased to meet you. Hope you enjoy your stay.

New Zealand Music

Partially because you mention in your info that there's a good possibility if one doesn't live on the same island you do, haven't heard it. I could ask about anything NZ but don't want to seem 'stalker-ish' myself; I admit to a soft spot for Kiwi's and Aussies for a number of reasons.

Most probably wandered in by way of either tx_cronopio or quietdarkenss corners of the world.

Re: New Zealand Music

You're welcome to ask anything you like about music (or New Zealand as a whole); all that would happen if you ask a question that sounded too stalker-ish to me is that you'd get a silly answer.

Although you should be warned that I have a lot of opinions, so if you don't want screenfuls of garbage as replies you might want to keep the questions sort of specific...
