Where are you from ?

Recommended Posts

Beatles' best works are all towards the end, no musician on this planet will ever deny that. They definitely made some of the most impressive stuff I've ever heard on Abbey Road and Sgt.Peppers' Lonely Hearts Club Band

 

And I'm spiritually closer to B.C. than Quebec right now, but I'm still a Canadian deep inside.

Don't worry I'm still from California :)

 

I changed my mind. I've decided that I'm from West Virginia. Having heard endless jokes about West Virginians (most of which would be too gross to post on this site even if we weren't striving for family-friendliness), I'm curious to see what life in West Virginia is like. Naturally, I'll keep you all posted.

I'm fairly sure that I would not have survived in ancient times. Either I'd have been captured by slave traders and then killed by my master for general laziness, or my tribe would have packed up and left me behind in the middle of the night.

 

Modern life does have its perks.

I didn't mean that far back - I was thinking more along the lines of the 50s or 60s, at least in my case.

 

One of my close friends would love to live between the 1890s and 1930s. :D What am I saying - she practically does!

I could have had some success had I been born a couple decades earlier, but I would not have survived to enjoy it. Yay medicine!

The 50's and 60's? I'm fairly sure I wouldn't have been smart enough to dodge the draft. I probably would have also been too chicken to join a cult or commune. And I'd be the kid who got laughed at 'cause he'd rather listen to Frank Sinatra and Billie Holiday than the Stones or the Beach Boys.

 

Then again, it would have been cool to hear Chuck Berry and Elvis and Little Richard back in the day: you know, anticipating every new single, etc. Shame I'd have had to work a soul-crushing job in order to hear that stuff (unless I lived someplace like Memphis, where they had a decent radio station).

Exactly! Ah, I love the oldies. It would've been so much fun just to dance to those songs.

I have less rhythm than Ringo Starr has songwriting capabilities. So dancing's out for me. I'd be happy listening to that stuff in my room (were headphones "in" then? Because Phil Spector sounds best on headphones. Actually, most stuff sounds better on headphones than on a stereo).

 

Anyway, the three musical movements I'd most like to experience firsthand (along with early rock 'n' roll) would be 70's punk (in England), 80's/90's Madchester (in Manchester, of course), and 90's Britpop (London, I guess).

Hi everyone! Sorry to interrupt this music conversation...

 

I have double nationality. I am spanish (Spain-spanish, not "latino-americano"-spanish), and american. I was born in a city in southern Spain, and currently live in a town near that city. From the age of 4 to 12- I have lived in Nebraska (Yep, that not-really-famous-for-anything state, and probably one of the ones you've never heard of). Ah! Who am I kidding, it's pretty nice over there. (But in Spain I have a beach nevarby  :P). I consider myself more spanish than american. I am also an 18 year old, and starting to live like one XD. About french: I take it at school, but since this year has not gone well, well, french is one of the subjects that haven't gone well... My mom and my uncle speak it pretty well, but me, not much... About San Francisco: I am not (may I say gay, with no offense?) or a hippie, but San Francisco is a place I've always wanted to visit! About music, Well yeah, I've heard of Pet Shop boys, Rolling Stones, The Beatles, etc. but don't really listen to them... I'm more of a rock-type guy, my tastes in rock go from rock to thrash metal, with some other sub-genres in between. But fortunately for everyone, I also like other type of music, like Michael Jackson, 90s-early 2000s pop, I could say some limited rap, oh and I also somewhat like Reggae (for example Bob Marley). And probably I'm some other music which I can't remember right now. I know, I have a different taste in music. I HATE the music most of the people my age listen to over here, it's too annoying.

 

But I gotta ask. How do so many people from around the world know about Chip's Challenge? Did they have the Atari Lynx? Did they get it from their "Windows Entertainment Pack" from their Windows 2000 or did they hear about it or saw it on the internet?

 

Me, I got it from the "Windows Entertainment Pack" (good memories  B) ).

 

Well, se ya!

I imagine most people here (including me) discovered Chip's Challenge from the Windows Entertainment Packs.

 

(That was all i wanted to say, but since i'm here...)

 

Born and raised (and still living) in Texas. Concerning my ethnicity, my mom is Oriental and my dad is European.

Actually, I found it out by the web. I think its when I first saw the wiki I got truly a Chipster. I think I saw it before then but I really had NO IDEA WHAT WAS HAPPENING. I would think my little brain would think "Is that fanged teeth frog trying to kiss that dude? Why is he having to collect these computer chips? Why is the exit just a bunch of squares in squares when the rest has some kind of computer theme going on? Why is this guy dancing in the ending? What the crap is a bit buster? WHAT THE **** IS A SONIC?*"

 

*5 computer chips if you get the joke :chipwin:

I like your little brain, it's funny.
