hey Alessandro (aka ZeroTheHero)
bello sapere che c' un altro italiano a cui piacciono i GONG
Intendo i primi GONG (Camenbert Electrique, AngelsEgg, You) :-)
sorry to all for this italian intermission
Ho letto solo ora! Tutto il filone Canterbury forse il mio genere preferito, prova a sentire qualcosa degli "Hatfield and the north"...
Ciao!

Hehe...
Italians and prog-rock. Why does you guys have such good taste?
Thanks! So, let's listen some "Premiata Forneria Marconi","Area" and "Banco del Mutuo Soccorso"'s records!
Although I prefer UK and Canterbury scene, I can't stop listening to PFM early records.

hehe... I'm Italian-American, and although I understand 90% of what you were saying to one another, I can't add anything to the convo without looking like a fool misuing the language!  Thats why I pretty much only lurk at DIYitalia  :icon_cool:

I'm in. I've always put my real name at the end of posts but for some reason I used grapefruit for my username when I joined. I guess because not many other people used their real names, and I love grapefruit!

I really like this. It becomes much more personal when you can address people with their real name.

Like Stew I always use my real name in posts.

My displayname is my initials + a number as my initials were already taken when I first used this as an email address.

Can anyone guess what the number 42 is a reference to :icon_question:

BTW: Is the "" in my last name shown correctly in everybody's browsers? It should be an o with with a diagonal line, the same letter as an

Dave, you should read the book(s). I think I have read the Hitchikers Guide at least six times.

I once bought the BBC radioplay on casette tape on a trip to England (pre-internet trade era), but I have heard that it is not the original background music compared to the radio show.

Thanks, Jim.  Thanks for the suggestion Carsten, but I'm not sure when I would get around to reading something like that.  I still haven't made it through my 12th grade reading list.

Do you see my two dots above the " o " ?
