    Petey one of these days can you give me the inside story on your legal career? I'm very curious to hear what you're up to now and how you got there.

In my case I have a set of jump-off questions, and lead into a real conversation with no ulterior motive beyond self enlightenment. In my experience, it has been a great way to understand not only the day-to-day you can expect in different fields with regards to obligation and tasks, but also the sort of mentality (albeit anecdotal) of workers and people in that profession.

    I recently had a phone conversation with a features editor at Bustle who was originally from Oakland. She was pretty straightforward and helpful. I'm trying to do more stuff like this.

    Ha, sure. It's not very interesting though. You can PM if you'd like.

    You wouldn't if you saw it in person! Looks more like an old Illinois Entertainer! Ha! No shitting though, I love these guys and the lumpen people making Bridgeport a cool place to be. Cool that JP writes for them, wonder if she lives in the neighborhood?

    Does anyone remember the real name of jdff poster saskadelphia?

    Writes about metal for Spin, whatever print magazines cover heavy metal. I think his first name was Adrien? Lives in Canada.  I'm just trying to find his blog.
