Same with me as Ken from Hyde. The few times I read Beware, I found things of interest, but it didn't often attract my att'n to begin with. Unfortunately the world is now so awash with text, it's not like when we were starving for belated info, as in the LCD/Blast of Hot Air days. But I do hope you or someone archives it.

You know what else should be available for starring? the soundbites. I'd star Ms. McWiggan, Eric Bogosian, The Nhilist Spasm.., etc. Melon inquirers, although they get all my sympathies, would not get any star from me thou.

Avatar 11:23am the Canterbury wood-elf:

@βrian In retrospect, it could have been worse. Parents moved there, so I had little say in the matter. There was a bit of a hardcore scene in the late 80s and WWSP (college radio) kept me sane at that time (Reagan years). But i was desperate to get away, and did as soon as legally possible. Still got friends in those parts, tho' (and on the Isthmus).
