1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I'm rather fond of ABBA.

    "Knowing Me, Knowing You" really gets me stirred up.

    BBA is some of the most perfect pop ever written.

    On this we can agree. I'm exceedingly fond of 'SOS'

    My other vices include intricate and bombastic commercial and underground Japanese pop, in addition to an affection for sci fi/fantasy television and comic books. But then, my avatar says it all

    John Lennon said "SOS" was one of his favorite songs of all time. I like that one too.

    At ease, soldier! Teh Tastemakers have decreed that this is acceptable pop culture. No need to apologize!

    Gilmore Girls

    Yeah, Gilmore Girls was one of my favorite shows back in the day. Can I even admit that in its first two seasons, 7th Heaven was one of the best shows on TV?

    Two different takes on family disfunction.
    7TH was good until everybody and their third cousin went to live with the Camdens.

    The Wayne's World films don't seem to have aged as well as I'd expected. My ability to detect Mike Myers' irony-laden smugness was somewhat impaired as a youth

    I was one of the sheep who forked over $9 ($27 actually, I took my sons) to see Hangover II this weekend.

    It was predictable, derivative and not particularly creative...and I nearly pissed my pants laughing.

    It was the anal sex with a transsexual that did it for me. Everyone knows someone who has fallen prey to the Bangkok ladyboy.
