kyricom: Who cares? but my favorite author (right now) is John Brunner - The Sheep Look Up.

kyricom: Invader Zim
kyricom: Al DiMeola, Eric Clapton, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Etta James, Frank Zappa, Jimi Hendrix, Paco de Lucia, Billie Holiday, B.B. King, and so many more
kyricom: Too many to list
kyricom: Modern Family, Monty Python, (the older) Simpsons

kyricom: Summer... definitely
kyricom: There are almost always many shades of grey
kyricom: Cranberry juice
kyricom: Don't really use filters too much, but I also don't chop that often.
kyricom: I mainly compete in the photography end of the site, and I LOVE all the shots we get to see from across the world. My favorite thing about PXLEyes is the international community and all the people I get to meet.
kyricom: Well, there are very few things in the world that I truly "hate," and a website wouldn't even come close to any of them.
kyricom: I have made a lot of friends here, and a lot of them have helped me improve dramatically.
kyricom: Way too much! :-)
kyricom: Ones that show imagination in the interpretation of the theme, combined with good composition and technique.
kyricom: I'd hesitate to name names, as I'd hate to leave anyone out, but there are a lot. Over the years that I've been here I've gotten to know (as well as you can on-line) many people with many different perspectives and techniques. I've learned a lot and can honestly say that the folks on this site have dramatically changed (hopefully for the better) my ability level.
kyricom: Probably about 6 or 7 years ago, but like I said, I mainly do photography here. I've been doing that in some form since I was about 11 or 12, although not seriously until about 10 years ago.
