Idle (idol?) curiosity...
- What what was it, about November of 2000 that saw the number of
posts, here, better than triple, and show steady growth thereafter?
There seems to have been a defining moment, as I assume that would be
in close proportion to the number of members - I know that membership
here has been climbing recently, but that was a really big jump - any
of the old-timers remember?
Was it a tour? a particular remix? I mean, I joined in late Feb of
2K1, a while after this defining moment, whatever it was (but then I
AM in New Zealand - things take a while to filter down here
sometimes), and I think it was the War of the Worlds remix and/or the
BodyRock remix coupled with realising that the Blue Pearl remix was
the same guys. I do remember thinking to myself, whilst listening to
whichever of the Nettwerk Plastic comps that has BodyRock on it
that "these guys write good breaks".
- November 2000? I can't even remember what happened in November 2001!
I've been running the list for two and a half years...it all merges
into one. There was only a few of us at the start, we've now got 360
You're right though, it did go up quite a bit that month.
I've just looked back in the message archive...we talked about a lot
of subjects. Quite a bit about the Lennie De Ice remix, Symphony,
MP3s. the remixes of Moby etc.
I seem to remember that Hybrid were on tour with Moby at that
time...? That may have accounted for some of the new members then.
It's quite nice reading through some of the old messages...that
month, Hybrid managed to get 29th place in GEAR magazine's "Coolest
100 things in the world" (beating things like the Ducati motorcycle,
Nintendo Gamecube and the Winter Music Conference).
I'd just like to say that this list gets a lot of good comments about
how friendly everyone is. Many members that have never posted tell me
how much they like being on the list.....so thank you to everyone for
making this list a lively (understatement) and happy one :o)
