    grade 11
    John Williams (Yeah Keeksy) I've got every star wars orchastrael cd. Special edition, expensive, 2 cds for each movie.
    rap sucks, rock sucks, pop sucks, heavy metal sucks, anything except classical and orchastrael sucks, yes you might call be "uncool" but I couldn't care less since being "cool" appears to obligate you to be stupid, act like a moron, kill your senses, and do drugs.
    I've got 2 macs and a pc [​IMG]
    I don't shop at future shop since they're sad little twerps who don't know shit about computers, macs neither.

    Old picture, only one that I could find of me online, I had to cut it out of a larger picture. Ignore my appearance, it was from a trip summeting Mt.Baker.

    Back to the top....
    I'm Peter
    23 years old (8-11-77)
    3rd year medical student.
    Graduated with B.A. in Neuroscience from colorado college in 99.
    I'm prob the most irregular regular member. I'll be on the boards all the time and playing all out for a few weeks, then drop for a few months. That's med school for you.
    I've lived in Tx most all my life
    I listen to most all music. From classical to Godsmack. (no rap, regge, or polka. Dont like tejano either, but I do like salsa. Oh yea, no under age girl or little boy bands either ;) and then there's ...
    Movies: Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. Quidam (a cirque du soleil from amstradam), Devils advocate... errr... others
    Hobbies: Games, my dog, b-ball, tennis, working out stuff, working on my house, just hanging with friends.
    computer: iMac DV (tangerine) with 384MB ram and a VERY tight 10 g hard drive. I also have my powermac 7100/80 (750 mb hard drive, 24 mb ram) that dont go right now... I think it needs a new hard drive; it freezes every time I try to start up
    picture from 5-27-01
    p.s. we might want to delete a few posts... it's hard to wade through 6 pages just to get the scoop on 10 poeple.
    [added in: WOO HOO!!! STICKER FOR ME!! see next post]

    good idea. you get a sticker! :p

    whoa! It's weird seeing a picture of some one you know on a message board. I gotta post an updated pic. My current pic is like 3 years old. Gotta admit, it's a classic though. :D

    [SIZE=+1]//edit on the rules[/SIZE]
    For those that go straight to the last unread post... i just edited in some rules in the first post in this thread:

    "
    Since this thread has gotten so freakin long it was suggested by Sklithe that I delete the unrelated posts so this thread is more to its original point. So that is what I am doing. Let's keep any future posts to the point. thx! :)
