(latest update: 1 Jan 04)

Have we chatted.. especially in the SoHo Loft chat, 1995-97?

Enquiring minds want to know anything newsy about SoHo friends, but here are suggestions:

  • where you are, what you're doing,
  • where & when you chat, and your current name(s),
  • ICQ? Your # for your friends to contact?
  • your website URL(s) and your email addy,
  • and which tall buildings you've recently leaped in a single bound. Or something like that..? *grin*

You can email me, or use this form, or even the guestbook, below. And please send info that I can cut-and-paste to this site, since lots of people are updating now.

(Yes, Tom is still humble, too! *chuckle*) He's painfully single (so he claims, but I suspect this charming, witty, handsome lad has an active social life), and hasn't really chatted since the demise of the Loft.

      Latest news from the illustrious Anonytom included a new job with the same company's latest publication, with a focus on Magic, The Gathering. You can email him at his appropriately named address:

    • Astral is still in college at Binghamton, NY and studying computers. In addition to being a full-time student, he's also working two jobs: one in retail, the other at IBM, so he doesn't really chat anymore.

Astral has been biking, working out, and is going to be taking rockclimbing at Cornell and of course snowboarding is on the horizon.

He has a (poetic, despite his AIM name! *grin*) homepage at, chats in ICQ (#1927806) as rust, at AIM as nvrpoetic, and there's always email: take your choice of or the easier-to-remember Find him in chat or drop him a note!

    • Looking for Dave? See Frogurt, below.

    • Deerblue chats in ICQ as "blue*" and has email at - did I ever reveal that for the first week or two of SoHo Loft chat, I thought she was male? Boy, was that embarrassing! *LOL* She is very definitely female!

    • Delores del Ruby has a wonderful online journal at her website, and is in Pittsburgh studying English Writing. (It seems to me that anyone named "Delores del Ruby" was born to be a successful writer! *grin*) She misses Bonanza Jellybean (and looks forward to her next visit), and Delores can be found at ICQ (1603762) or on AIM as "marimbitch", or you can email her.

      e says, "I finished writing my first full-length novel a year ago and have been, ever since, attempting to publish it. I have rejections up the wazoo, but I am no less determined and no less faithful in believing that this book will make it out there soon enough. Besides, if it doesn't, I do have a new book on the way.

      As for my techno band, Duality, we have been working hard, despite the fact that we are split between two different cities with all of our equipment in a third.

      If you visit our site (, you will notice that we don't have many new songs up, but we are secretly working on a new album (entitled Gullible Devin and Her Down-Syndrome Cat) and are rehearsing for a possible live act to be put on in Gainesville, Tampa, or Orlando by the end of next year. Other than that, I have nothing new to report, aside from finishing college and being thrown into the real world (no real job yet, but I'll keep you posted). Oh yeah, and I am also on AIM as emagill00."

    • small photo of Joe/fJoe/f, aka Joefie, sends love and a big hug to everyone. She rarely chats anymore, but when she does, it's in the Restaurant. In Sept 2000, she said: "I'm becoming a mom in December and married in March (wedding and christening combined). [Ais notes: Her Prince Charming is Frederik, or course.] I now work for Manpower and actually having fun with it. I've heard that Manpower treat their employees bad in the States but over here it's not the case! I no longer have a homepage.. I deleted it in a weak moment *L* well.. that's me you know.."

    • Joel has reported in, and he's graduated from college. He lets us know that he has moved to Durham, NC with the beautiful Briana, and, in his own words, "The whole family (minus brother Josh) already lives here, and my mom (Lynn, Mystery Lady, whatever) is an RN in the neurology department at Duke University Hospital. I'm still in the Army Reserve, and was named 1998-1999 78th Division Soldier of the Year (my one accomplishment thus far)." He's found a job as an administrative specialist for a major pharmaceutical company. Sounds pretty impressive to me, Joel! You can catch Joel (as, of course, "Joel") on ICQ (1188790), or email him at his new email: And though Yahoo/GeoCities, blundering along as usual, jerked Joel's great website (SunsetStrip/Alley/4995), he still has one at

    • Tragic news about our longtime friend Killer Queen, aka Jim Carney. You may remember him as the artist & architecture student from Tulane. He and his girlfriend were killed in a car accident in New Orleans, in early August 2001. His car was hit by someone who ran a stop sign. For more info, see our memorial page.

    • Right before the 2000 reunion, I met the witty Knifemorr in the new SoHo chat. Knifemorr's still on the sunny NJ shore, now a senior at Southern Regional High School, and working at a video rental/auto parts store. (You'll remember Knifemorr if you chatted at the old SoHo in late 1997, shortly before GC Java'd the chat into oblivion. *sigh* Knifemorr's a friend of our own Flying Squirrel.)

    • It's time for the spotlights, or at least the footlights: Kory, currently at university in Oklahoma, appears with Stryc9 at and on AIM as aliasofkory. Prefer email? Reach Kory at I think I want a cyber-autograph, Kory! *grin*

    • Kurt (from Vienna), aka Shawn, started ChatWorld in 1997. It included GeoChats, where we had our 2000 SoHo Reunion.

      Aisling reports: The concept was wonderful; since GeoCities apparently didn't care to continue the chat format we loved, Kurt picked up the ball and ran with it. For awhile, it was great! Instant flashback. Chatting with old SoHo friends, in a familiar format. I loved it.

      However, it's probably no surprise that Yahoo/GeoCities wanted the GeoChat name for their very own. *sigh* He had to sell the name to Yahoo/GeoCities, and his SoHo chat is now closed.

      In my personal opinion, Y/GC is being a complete dog-in-the-manger about this. But hey, since when do they listen to me? *chuckle and sigh, again*

      Anyway, Kurt's now working on fabulous new projects, and you can follow his glorious pursuits at and the new

    • lacorbeau, aka Gina, is still at and her email is still Her ICQ is 3359941. She says, "Yes, we have a beautiful little son named Alex Tam-Minh, and I invite all to go and see him. I so miss our loft, no where else compares. Fast approaching 35 on July 10."

    • Yippee! We've heard from the lovely lee lee! Her website is at SoHo/Studios/4037, her email's, and she's at ICQ #1222610. She says, "I have been working hard at school...studying psychology and of course as all college ppl know...PARTYING!! ~L~ I am now working for a local company as a behavioral aide working with children performing behavior modification. I am still single and having fun. I really don't chat much anymore but I am definitely looking forward to seeing how everyone is doing."

    • The brilliant and blunt Lexi, or Lexus says: "Alright, here goes. I'm now in Collegeville PA attending Ursinus College. Don't ask my major cause I don't have one. lets see. ICQ hasn't changed its 2888776 for those inquiring minds that I have lost touch with in the recent years. I'm now chatting in Webmaze under the alias Lexierica. (what can I say? I got bored with Lexus.. and correcting my lovely sister Erynne..... I never used LexusNeon in Soho.) I've been very lucky to see Dave aka Frogurt a few times in the recent months and Joel and Briana in the past year or two at least. My homepage is or as yahoo likes to put it just for the record... yahoo sucks big. but okay. enough bashing. Anything else going on? hmm... other than my aol name being LexusNeon..... nothing much. *hugs kisses luck and love to all of you soho sweeties* -Lexi"

    • London Lad, aka Andreas Duess still has a magnificent older website at his familiar GC URL. Check out his more recent accomplishments at, and an installation piece at Lighthouse 3.

      And, as of January 2004, he's involved in a great and much-needed print-on-demand publishing business,, aka "Print and Be Damned"! *LOL* If you've wanted to publish your life story, that novel you've been meaning to finish, or anything else that ought to be in print... check out his site!

      Email London Lad at

    • Lou, aka Brandon, also has personal website (be sure to see the hat), AND an older (but wiser? *grin* well, certainly lovely anyway...) website about musicals, AND he's in his last year at the Univ of Idaho (Secondary English Education) this year AND he'll be student teaching this spring AND he's going to SF with Anadine to visit Trystessa! Wow! Care to share some of your energy secrets, Lou? *grin*
