Pffft. "Matt Haughey." Like that's a real name. Please.

Mr Haughey says: "throw paint at the fucking thing over and over, until something good sticks"
So that's how it's done.
Good to know.

Psst.....It's all so clear to me now, I'm the keeper of the cheese, and you're the lemon merchant, and he knows it.

Nice interview but it needs some spicing up, I think we need James Lipton.
If heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive?

What sound or noise do you love?

What is your favorite curse word?

"Remember when all you did on the web was randomly surf?" Doh!

Very sweet.

Does anyone do anything else? I just end up here several times a day because there are so many links that end up here.

I don't arrive at a site because I followed a path through a dozen other sites anymore. I'm at a site because it was linked to on some forum.

If I was Jon Katz I'd call this shallow surfing.

I end up here because I'm so lazy: it's so much less time consuming than randomly surfing the net. Plus, you guys and gals are just a bunch of lovable teddy bears.

There are other sites on the internet?

Funny, Karl, I always thought of myself as more of a Rat Fink...

There used to be, but they all went broke.

Oh, c'mon, his friend didn't show him any porn sites at all, huh? Rrrright.

kchristidis - there weren't any porn sites in 1995. They didn't get online until 1996. All the good porn was on Usenet.
