  1. Just want to say “hi” from Manchester, UK.

    Any connection to information seeking behavior with these differentiation of groups?

    Everytime I am listening to The Cure I go back to that cateloging powerpoint slide of the Cure you made in class. You are probably the first instructor to use them as an example in a powerpoint slide.

    I was just listening to The Cure on Myspace and all their songs seem to be live recordings. Amazing I tell you. They are absolutely a flawless band.
