Mine is a play on my profession as a psychiatrist and reflects my love for vanity license plates, hence the use of the "8".




Does anyone else remember the Canadian Game Show 'Bumper Stumpers'? Two people would compete and they would get a clue from the host: "Which license plate, the right or the left, belongs to an irate baker?" And then you would have to work out what they both said, and then guess which one belonged to the clue. Classic.

Hey Amie.. I do remember a game show like that here in the states, though I don't remember the name of the show.

I've used my handle since my early online gaming days. I first used it playing one of the first online 3D multiplayer games: Airwar on the Genie network, on my Amiga 500, and my 1200 baud modem. It was a simple WWII dogfighting game. The scoring system was pretty basic back then, based on more points for the most kills without being shot down. There were quite a few hot-doggers online boasting about their scores, which of course put me on a mission. I've basically just stuck with the handle ever since!

Kilty, the Cassidy/Jones CD I linked above is available from Amazon sellers(the link)and also Tower Records(10% off sale ends today). You can get a brief taste of the music from their sample clips. My second favorite Brigadoon, and a bit better-recorded than the older Cassidy/Jones, is this one , with an especially good "Waitin' For My Dearie".

Jack, you inspired me to pick up the movie from the library on the way home and watch it for the first time in about three years. Yeah, Gene and Cyd do some nice dancing through the heather on the hill, and it's definitely better than the dancing on any of the CDs. It's still a shame that they cut funny stuff like "The Love of My Life" and "My Mother's Wedding Day" and turned beautiful romantic duets like "The Heather on the Hill" and "Almost Like Being in Love" into a Gene Kelly monologue to accompany his dancing.

Agreed.

Brigadoon didn't really do well at the box office when first released. Kelly always blamed it on the fact that the movie had to be shot on a sound stage at the studio, and looked it. MGM, which was struggling financially at the time, refused to allow the movie to be shot on location in Scotland as Kelly demanded. To compensate, they took some money allocated to another musical being shot at the same time, and did Brigadoon's sound stage as elaborately as they could. Ironically the other movie, Seven Brides For Seven Brothers did much better at the box office.

Contrary to popular belief, no más (no more) is a happy coincidence and not the reason for my screen name. My mother and sister, way back when I was young, thought it would be fun to teach my youngest brother to call me Thomas since I hated it so (I've since gotten over it). He couldn't say Thomas, so he said Nomas - a name that many family and some friends still call me. The Mr came from a phase where he called everyone Mr. or Mrs. [insert their name here].

As Bren R. - wow, I really don't have to explain mine, do I?!?

No one calls me Brenden... except my one living grandmother and telemarketers. I can tell them apart since the telemarketers don't "haff a t'ick G'arh'man acc'int"

I suppose after all these years, I shall explain my user name. I'd like to make it clear that I did NOT choose it because I thought it was fitting! The boring reality is that I took it from a song titled, "The Sonic Fox", which happens to be on one of my favorite electronic albums, Tango N' Vectif by Mu-ziq. I just thought it was a cool name, that's all!

Mary, nevertheless it's still appropriate. Your membership on an audio board justifies the first half and your picture the second.
