I just read through this, and saw a couple people mention my boy, Ese Edgar.

We were/are not the same person...but he's actually a very good "real life" friend of mine, who I've known since 1st grade. He doesn't post, I guess because a) he's very busy at work(lawyer), and b) just pretty much stopped with the message board thing after Abuzz got shut down.

Oh, and I killed him. Accidental sausage incident of '03.

I was pretty much my current name, I was a couple other ID's before that got booted off, but I don't think anyone would recognize them, it wasn't long before I was Slappy.

I heard about that sausage incident of '03 with the whips and the German Shepard Slap. Of course, "accidentally" is the key word here.

A search for Abuzz will show up a variety of threads, which might give more and deeper answers.

But in short: Abuzz was a service by the New York Times.

All of the earliest members here (besides Craven's Brasilian students) were more or less 'heavy posters' there, who finally got a kind of depression and joined here.
One invited the other and so on ...

Abuz officially closed a couple of months ago.

Somebody must have thought you have a couple of loose screws.

Seriously, now. There was an original farmerman on Abuzz who knew Little Jimmy Dickens.

Screws loose--I thought they were color-coordinated ice picks.

Why so many ice picks?

Perhaps Gus is a party minded sort of guy and perhaps he's a murderous sort of man.






Edited for spelling--twict.

umm, no. no ice picks, no carving tools. they're good for internal cleansing of oneself, sotospeak. at least i think that's what they are.
anyhow, i am only peeping into here, feeling lonely as i have no abuzz history. in fact, no other than a2k history. so sad.

dagmarka--

You are a woman who lives deeply. Your unfolding passion is of such intensity that your past is consumed to fuel the glamour of your present.

Even as you became aware of Abuzz, it crumbled under your consideration.
