And time for a quiz of sorts, what do the folks mentioned here all have in common? I'll give a button (either Toyboat or one of mine) to the first 3 people who get it right. Comments are screened.

edit And yes I am fully aware that they are all on my friends list ...
edit too Two people have gotten it right.

Well, all of them are filkers or musicians of one sort or another. I'm not sure if there's a narrower thing than that though...

I'm Sorry

That is not correct, a couple of them are not musicians, although many of them are.

Um... they're all on your flist?

I think I only know two of these, so this wimpy answer will have to suffice.

They're all either filkers or are connected with the filk community, they're all in your LJ friends list, they're all fen, they all consume food and liquids in order to survive ...

Am I getting close here?

Hrm - I'm guessing it's con and band related. All will be at OVFF and/or Windycon? (or, alternatively, all were at Archon)

Indeed

1) People you might see/have seen at conventions
2) People who live in the midwest

BTW, your last edit horked your HTML. Please to fix?

Re: Ummm

Now that I know the answer...

Why should I have been able to get this right? *I* wasn't at Archon, and I don't know some of the people on the list, so how I could specifically have known they were at Archon with you I just don't know.

People you've performed in front of live? (I don't know all these people, at least not by handle)
Possibly "people you've performed with"? Although I think gabrielg is pushing the envelope a bit, his devoted efforts to join the band at your last rehearsal to the contrary.
People you've roomed with at conventions?

PS - unless you want Toyboat to be a trio, you really should stop mike46 from draining anach's socks. It can't be good for him...

One of them I have never performed in front of live ... I've been him, but never in front. I've only performed with three of these, the guys in Toyboat, although I have been on a Luke CD. I have roomed with 5 of these folks. And I have no control on what Mike does ... you should know this.

And, Gabriel was onstage with us at Archon, rocking the washboard.

Um... they are all people you have met personally, at a con? I'd also guess all filkers and/or dementia fans.

As far as I can tell, they're all sci-fi con goers, though I don't know if all of them were at Archon.
