but keep in mind penalty fits the crime, and it deals no softened blow

(Scroll down for the list of radio stations. Thank you ever so.)

Had an odd moment earlier, at Silent Sparrow's not-so-secret sale.


I remember this when it came out. I remember this, and the all of eight other items she had at the time, in a little satellite store in the original Steelhead sim. I remember really liking this, not knowing if I could afford it, but having to go to her main store anyway, which was all dark brown wood and open to the night air, the panels for the clothing on display full bright (there was no glow back then, remember).

I'm standing in front of this now, and realizing how far the grid has come, in a lot of ways. Hells, that's Panache hair she's wearing. I don't even know if Panache hair is still around; more to the point, that hair was very nearly--or might indeed have been--made before the advent of flexi prims!


This was the first thing I ever bought from Silent Sparrow. I was (I still am) deeply in love with My Chemical Romance's Welcome to the Black Parade. The album with the same name was released on September 11th, 2006. I'd been on the grid exactly two months and one day.

I saw this and knew I had to take it home, for all that it's gone with so very little over the years.

I'm slightly tempted to give in to nostalgia and buy a new copy. Save for I'm doing my best to get down below 60,117. I always held 60K as the impossible barrier, in terms of lag, redmapping and crashing; and boy, I wasn't kidding. I have to get back to at least 58K again!

I didn't see Internet Swiss Radio - Crazy Jazz, which ... when it works, it works.

Same with Radio Dismuke ...

In--I put 'em both into Jazz/Blues, even though it seemed Radio Dismuke also plays big band/swing.

Completely I share your opinion. In it something is also to me it seems it is excellent idea. Completely with you I will agree.
