Hey Ned & iriXx & Morgan & Kevin(s) / fellowes & friends / et al

Reconsidered :-) they threw me out o th Hockey Game too ;-) think i'll go hang out with NASA and old reruns. well Dis.Cuss Players of th World Unite does have nice overtones in th ring of difussion, NON ?

maybe it's time i jump ship and find other WWWs to lurk / party on ... Would you have any
recommendations ? what do other people think / tink of CEC ? technical / schmeknical / OT (surely it's not just my Irish (éireann) Canadian sense o th absurd in reality, virtual or otherwise, eh ?

thanks for 'standing' up for me but i've got to learn how to run over toes myself ... ;-) .. i'm already practising ... btw, i really am tired of people asking me if i need help. like i said, i could use a new yacht !!!

but then i again show up on th CEC radar ? and on a conference list ? i can't take all this fame & fortune (lol). OK, i'll play hockey with you and be happy to assist in uploading sounds from WSP th SOUND site ... it's a COOL endeavor that (hopefully) will bring a lot o folks to EA & Soundscape (or maybe it's th other way round) ... can i bring my shadow puppets, if they
don't make too much NOIZE and promise to behave 'emselves ? (lol)

ps, i still think 'challenging' th folks from Corner Gas or Da Vinci's Inquest, NASA, Everybody Hates Chris Rock etc to an ElectroAcoustic Kompostion would be a good idea to bring th community who loves SOUND to come 'running' or sliding into home base (oops sorry that's baseball :-) but then they're lurking already so waz up ? don't ya know Morgan's alter ego is as a phD
graduate in physics of sound / silence but is really Kanye West in Dis Guise who is at th moment komposing beat box for Kris (or was that programming)? btw, are th studios access-able at CEC-Discuss (er, i mean th more 'academic' sounding conPHerence) ?

Archiving & Access-Ability - let's talk / do lunch ;-)

think you think you very much (psuedo-comedic ascii)

love & west, sylvi macCormac

I'm just thinking that this file-sharing project might entice peope who are not into a kind of list art/communication-poetry jam to participate in CEC discussions anew (btw, I much prefer the old name of this list ;-)
