Someone posted something about the Metafilter midnight signups on plastic.com. At least I think this was it. It was a long time ago. Anyways I didn't like plastic.com, and got into Metafilter after a couple of attempts.
It's all good, really
I can't remember when it really clicked - I just started to realize that this was where cool people were finding and posting all the stuff I was really interested in. If there was a favorite post for me, maybe it was dhoyt introducing me to Korean psychedelic and acid folk music. I'm still listening to this stuff.
