“I bumped into Bernardo during high school (only once, thank goodness). My spidey sense went off immediately: he exuded a creepiness that was palpable, while seeming larger than life. My friends were smitten, but I just plain left the area.
I agree with you about Homolka; she likely boosted his ego to the point of godhood, then just continued prodding him to do more evil things.”
“Pffft. I have been "plus sized" all my life, and grew up expecting to not be able to buy clothes that fit in regular stores. If a store markets itself as catering to larger-sized women, I will go there to see what they have - if a store doesn't market itself that way, I don't even enter the door or visit the website. Stores specialize, people - get over yourselves and stop crying about not being able to wear what you want right noooooowwwww!!!!!! (cue stampy feet and pout).
I guess I learned early that quality and good fit are more important than the name on the label.”
“I've loved Aphrodite's Child and Vangelis since the 70's, as well as most prog music. I have Eloy playing in the background right now, in fact. CDs are handy for sure, but when I DJ, I use vinyl - there's nothing else like it.”

“Yeah, vinyl still holds it's place. I enjoy turning on some of my younger friends to things they never heard, played on something a lot more high end than ipod headphones or dock speakers.”
“Recorded music existed before the digital age you know, and quite a bit of really good stuff is out of print now, I got it 30yrs. ago, I am a fan of electronic music and Vangelis (and other genres too). I first heard of him when he played keyboards for Aphrodite's Child (google them).”
“I'm sure he thought he was being edgy and cool with those questions. Hopefully he will figure out that intelligent and/or thoughtful questions have more of an effect in this world. His actions in the press room just made him look like an immature child.”

“And his Twitter follow up confirmed that he is a 16 year old. I'm sure that will get him plenty of job offers from the right when he's old enough to work past 11pm.”
