The only reason I signed up for this deal is because I've had several people recommend that I should.

So here I am.

I'll tell you right now that I don't have any important plans on making daily updates in this thing.

I'm a 2003 Graduate of Benson Polytechnic High School in Portland...

I work in radio broadcasting... Perhaps you have seen me on TV Sports-Casting high school basketball games in the past on PPS Channel-28. You may also know me as "Portland's Favorite Soul Brother" from my radio show. That's the title I earned.

I dig Soul music more then most other genres, but I'm fairly knowledgeable when it comes to music... I have over 1500+ records (yes, full albums) ranging in all genres... From Metal to Rap, I've got a bit of everything.

Like I said, Classic Soul music is my favorite of them all. Some of my favorite music off the top of my head: Earth Wind & Fire, Maze (Featuring Frankie Beverly), Stevie Wonder, The Temptations, Parliament, Curtis Mayfield, Marvin Gaye (to some degree), Bobby "Blue" Bland, etc...

I own 2 cars, and maintain 3... All 3 are Volvo 240s... I own a 1976 245DL (289K miles) and a 1980 245DL (427K miles). Both are standard trannys (stick). My dad drives a 1977 244DL (mileage unknown, probably over 300K) that I keep running for him. His is an auto. Currently, I only drive the '80, because the '76 does not run. I do have a new engine for it just waiting to be put in... That's a project you will be hearing about soon enough.

For simplicity's sake, I have an 8-TRACK player in my car. Many reasons behind it: No one will ever steal it, I have a lot of tapes, People like to give me their old 8-TRACK collections for free, and it gives me total control over the radio when I have passengers, because I'm the only one that has tapes for it! MUAHAHAHA...

I spend most of my online time at the following websites:

Uhh, I'm sure you are probably sick of me already, so I'll stop this insanity now. If you really feel the need to contact me, use AOL IM: HearToTemptYou.
