Great post. I thought I read every post in this thread; I must’ve somehow skipped over that whole page (the one with your post). Who knows?
Anyway, I became amused at myself when I first started reading your post. You know how when you see your local radio DJ in real life, he/she never looks anything at all like you imaged in your mind? Well, I’d always seen a tall, slender white guy (very pale skin, at that) when I imagined you in my mind. Of course, I’m well aware that the likelihood of my imagining with any accuracy the way anyone on here looks is very slim. However, when I read you describing yourself as a short Asian guy, I found myself with a very strong sense of “see the DJ for the first time” effect. I’ve thought about posting a picture of my face here several times, but I’m a little too worried that someone will recognize me. I’m beginning to care less and less about being found by someone who knows me (I think the scare with my father toughed me up to the idea), so maybe one of these days I’ll put a face to the annoying, long winded poster known as KOG.
What the hell kind of a tangent was that? I don’t know. Great post, thanks for bringing it to my (our) attention with the link. :)
