19:55 - Moose Many thanks to whoever introduced me to Astronoid via the shoutbox the other day. Their new album, Air, is magnificent. I can even understand why some refer to their genre as "Dream Thrash".

18:01 - Marcel Hubregtse Karl is a small,. albeit quite fattish mf. He is smaller than I am. And I am only 5'11"
17:56 - 3rdWorld He definitely isn't massive as he once was.
17:26 - Apothecary I think I am slightly taller, I'm about 6 feet. But he is definitely a bigger guy than I am, overall
