    As you can seen from my post count, I am not a frequent contributor to this site. But I have been around a looong time. My profile says I joined in 2004, but I think that's due to a redesign at the time, because I was definitely doing some heavy lurking in my first year of university, which was 2001. I actually went to school with Rory (StopAndCop). I believe I might have stumbled on this place before that though. I know John Book and I were both members of the Dj Shadow mailing list (can't remember name). Ha way back then doing sample-pack mix-offs all trying to be little Joshes. So more than a decade anyways. Wow. I wish I could say that I was more active around here, and contributed more to the canon of the 'strut. I always felt like a little dude in the big pond because my record knowledge is not deep, and I just dabble in beats for fun mostly. Looking back though, I wish I spent more time being active. Because there is absolutely no denying that this site has had a small but very very real part in helping shape my sense of style, my musical tastes, my slang, and my knowledge about life in general, not just rekkids. So I feel guilty. Like I used Soulstrut all these years and didn't give back. I am proud to have been able to have one of my songs included on Gnat's Break In The Road compilation. But I have taken far more than I have given.

    So thank you. If you're reading this, then you've probably provided me with great music or laughs at some point around here. And I think this place probably means even more to you than it does to me. So I promise right now that if there is a way I can help reinvigorate the site, I'm going to try. I owe it to you.

    ps thanks Raj for birthing this bitch.

    Faux has indeed dropped some great knowledge on Soulstrut about Jazz / Latin records, without question. Rap? Not so much

    Not to get on topic or anything, but Soulstrut shouldn't try and out waxidermy Waxidermy. If that's where record snark is happening and set sales are working now then so be it. Soulstrut has covered 90% of the relevant record ground throughout the years and can still turn on the guns when it needs to... so big deal I say. Good threads here are still constant, they just aren't always about records anymore. Nothing stays the same forever.

    Waxidermy is full of dudes who think "alone time music" is topical.

    Imagine a random friend being in a coma for the last 4 years and waking up tomorrow. You show them soulstrut for aweek and they'd be caught up on everything they needed to know - and learn a bit about good records. If you tried to use waxidermy to reintroduce them to society, they would be completely :zooted:

    Shit, my son wraps himself around a tree last week,busts his leg and the next time I look up Raj is sayin it's time for the strut to dead itself. Ooof....
    I know it's been quiet around here, and I'm as guilty as the next (house building related). But when I do turn on the PC the Strut is one of the sites that is always checked. Please Raj, find a way to keep 'er going. Some folks jumped ship after the redesign... the classifieds certainly fell off a cliff. But there's always something on here that gets a reaction out of me: that's what I love.
    If you need to save $$$ cut the strut to the bones, try to save the mixes. It's all you can do now that you're up to your tits in the real world.

    Well played sir. Is it too late in the thread to blame the site redesign for my triple post?

    When new mixes are put up it would be cool to have a thread with a link to them - always good talking points/.

    As someone who posted a lot up to about 3 years ago, let me say for the record that my lack of participation has nothing to do with other posters, the board design, waxidermy, facebook etc.

    I just do not have time. But I do miss it because I had a lot of fun!
