01/29/03 from listening to records i just knew what to do

...from today's Onion...also be sure to see this article!...

site work...

...thanks to everyone whos sent in photos, artwork or strange but true weez stories. Since the fans' stuff page was revamped a little while back, new submissions have come in fast, and its about time to update again....so if youve contributed recently, keep an eye peeled for your submission.

...a fine example from Tim T....

...also looming on the horizon is the long awaited re-vamp of the equipment pages and the ongoing project of adding a ton of stuff to the super chrono. [some stuff in 1991 already, tons of neat + previously unseen stuff headed for the 1992 section asap, - then 1993, etc.] Thanks for your patience, its our goal to always be improving the site and adding stuff.

here there and everywhere...
