I'm liking this seemingly new trend you are showing for being 'zany'.. it's nice to see a good sense of humor on this forum.  Keep up the good work!

Hello, John. I wanted to wish you a good evening, and to say thanks for this site that has become my new home:) As always, I enjoy the blossoming artistic relationship I have with the ambient musicians here. I really have to go to the poetry section again and check things out there! Here's a robot or two for you :) Who can resist the infamous Portal Turret, right?! "I'm different...ahhhh..." haha and, of course, the robot from Beastie Boys "Intergalactic" hee hee..
