    I admit, in real life I'm in 3D. Nobody believes I used to fly, I mean, I've gained about 300lbs since I was on TV in the 60s.

    Ok, ok. I'll admit all that flying around was done by my stunt double. I would be thrown into a catch pit offscreen by Bullwinkle. That bastard would sometimes try to miss the pit! I got a dislocated shoulder from that once. Still gives me trouble. The joke's on him now, he's posting as me on TDPRI.

    In the New York Times crossword puzzle the other day, there was this clue: “How John Lennon wrote I Am The Walrus.” Six letters. The answer was ONACID.

    I've been lucky enough to have had more chances to be 'me' than most people. By that, I mean I've spent most of my adult life doing things connected to music that genuinely interest me. Whatever I've learned from that, I'm happy to share.

    But I'm not 'real' on here. In real life, I'm in colour and 3D. You can't smell bad on a forum, and my avatar looks the same, even when I've cut my hair. There are vast aspects of my life that I don't share with most people on here, because that would make me a hideous bore.

    But I checked the box that says "I am not a robot" and passed the test.

    I'm retired. Read DGAF, too tired to lie, and be pretentious. Nobody to impress, just bending strings, and talking Strat.

    Going back to the original question, I'd say I'm neither for real nor am I against it.

    I guess you could say I'm sort of the Switzerland of the real.

    I am unreal!!!!

    Seriously though I'm not even real in real life depending who you are.

    Those who really know me well, know I'm a nice guy.

    New people "know me" to be the person I am depending on who they are.

    If I don't like you, you'll think I'm a jerk.

    I'm not one to put a lot a value in a lot of casual friends but I place a lot of value on a few really good people.

    Internet me is closer to the real me, but without any context.

    Eric Burden was the egg man. During an acid fueled party the lads got messy with food items and eggs were cracked on the participants.

    Useless trivia, back to the scheduled thread in progress.

    I am a guitar enthusiast that actually lacks basic guitar playing skills. Having a strat and an amp makes my inner rocker feel "real".
