Yeah, we've met. He's always been completely cool to me!

I know you like him, but I can't abide someone who's a complete dickhead on a music forum, or any internet forum for that matter, and completely forget that aspect of someone's personality and want to meet them in real life. I didn't even know anybody very well on the Mojo boards, but he came across like an obscene, crass little baby, along with his toady, that Megh bitch, when people were going to BCB from Mojo. I wouldn't step across the street to spit on either of them.

You're a better man than me, Pete.

No, I think she's "sound." Kid P and Griff palled around with her at the Chicago JU of America, I believe. And if that didn't drive you crazy, you're fine.

As long as Griff wasn't talking about history it would be fine.

Well Kenji didn't have to actually be of Japanese descent for him to be one of my favorite BCBers. I wasn't bothered by his internet facade hoax or whatever because he never posted shite, and was always friendly and polite.

FWIW I liked Meg. Still friends with her on Facebook. I never understood what Meg did that rendered her so noxious to others here. She wasn't notably close to Plaxico in my memory, but then again I wasn't here for long stretches due to my flouncy habit, so I probably just missed it. I think it's a case of mistaken identity. Someone maybe spoofed her name as a Plaxico alias? She really is a very nice person and I never saw her be anything but friendly here.

Danee and I used to have a running joke about "It puts the lotion on its skin" and Plax because he had said such horrific stuff to us both...but rumor had it that Plax/Chris was nice enough as a human being IRL. He and Dave and Jamie were all quite friendly and they both assured me that despite the death threats and horrible misogyny, he wasn't going to show up and kill my firstborn or boil my cat or anything looney. So thus reassured repeatedly that he was not a dangerous psychopath despite appearances -- I tolerated him, defended his right to free speech at times even -- despite not warming to him personally and the fact that he said some truly reprehensible things to me and others. As a consequence I tend to see Plaxico defended as a somewhat immature but mostly harmless troll. Ah! The internet was young then. Mistakes were made. I still feel badly over my photoshopped Geisha Girl pumpkin patch thing, and that time I went all PMS and laid into Jane for no reason. We all could behave inappropriately eh?

There's not really been anyone here I truly loathed, although a few people have creeped me out and made me wary about participating in mix club and secret santa where my address could get to them. I miss Kenji and Baba and Midnight Special and Take_5 and Spenny and Ced and all the people who have left our little enclave of music obsessives.

He was one of my best buds on Mojo, we exchanged PMs almost daily, talked about pretty much everything.

On the board itself he could be combative and occasionally an absolute arse, but I think some of that was just a facade. He was a decent sort.

And from what I remember of Megh, she was a sweetie!

Yeah, I don't understand having a problem with Megh at all! Unless I'm confusing her with someone else (or John is). She's a dear, both when we met in person at the 2007 Chicago JU, and on fb (where we're still friends).

As for Kenji, I'd heard from various sources that he was not actually Japanese, and didn't really care. But I think the fact that it became a big issue here (iirc, when RcL asked about it), sadly, is I think what stopped him coming 'round these parts. Not sure why he didn't either ignore it and keep posting the same way and just not respond to the rumors, or say "ha ha! Cat's out of the bag now!" and keep posting, but it's been over three years now... :cry:

I don't remember Plaxico at all but I wasn't on Mojo for that long and it was some time ago. I have no idea who Megh is.

Never knew about Kenji's real identity and I'm sort of sorry he wasn't Japanese.

Megh was always sweet and she attended a London JY not that long ago.

I never knew that Kenji-san wasn't Japanese. I wondered why he was so knowledgable about Celtic. I put it own to us having signed Shunsuke Nakamura :lol: :oops:

Lovely guy regardless. He used to sometimes buy me Japanese releases of things he knew I'd like and send them to me, gratis, without my even dropping hints. Very generous. I have a bunch of CDRs he sent me of soul stuff I'd never heard of, which I still spin regularly. Very thoughtful guy, with a knowledge of soul music that was only matched by his passion for it.

The very reason elaborate conspiracy theories don't work (ironically): people like Jimbo.

I think it's ironic that Jimbo is the one that ruined BCB's biggest state secret.
