Recommended Posts

Oh NenaE, don't be so naive, we all know he likes to look at himself! It's worse than a mirror. :lol::P

:lol: ...Puma, Shhhh,...It's part of my HAIF image, don't ruin it for me. This topic is a funny one.

I don't understand most, including the significance of the old man and woman at the dinner table.

Really? If you look under "location" that explains the scene, plus the signature at the bottom of each post. 99% of the avatars are Houston (past or present) history related.

Now lets have fun and you bring back that topic you made about Killer clowns & scary dolls. :o:D

he's a lover

I think I'm busted. :blush: See what classic songs/films do to ya. :)

most valuable poster? quality per post

my top three are niche, red and channeltwonews

I can see the consistant sarcasm/humor/flame bait in RedScare, but I am thinking otherwise regarding quality, hence my nomination for member to most likely to cause a topic to be locked still stands alone on this one. No one can top him.

Quality humor. . . moo, he has his moments, quality HAIF posts. . . not so much. :rolleyes:

:blink:

and I am thinking someone's garden-gnome coat cut off the oxygen to their toddler brain, and they never fully recovered. ;)

Awww, admit it. You love Red! We all love him, especially when he puts the lawyerly beat-down on trolls.

Is there a special icon that denotes 'thread locked on account of Red'? I can't find it.

Most obnoxious - Plastic (banned member)

Best comedic ending to a member

Topic: Buffalo Spurway

Owner: PhD (Plastic)

Best Quote: CE_ugh

Hello Plastic.

Once again, you propose a highway through one of Houston's most expensive and prestigious neighborhoods. You must be a socialist or something.

Worst Lie: PhD

I'm a first time poster.

Even funnier is there is a current member called Meltedplastic. Will the be Sonofplastic, etc? :lol:

I honestly thought he was a foreign exchange student just having trouble with the language barrier? If you see foreign language forums, it or he appeared the same. Or maybe he was just plain insane.

although he can get me started from time to time, my intuition tells me that Red is probably a pretty nice guy in person. As far as quality of posts, I couldn't dissagree more. Red has been a big contributer to HAIF since I've been here.

Millennicca is the one that was truly of value. (Her name suddenly popped into my head while in flight)

The lady had such, such wealth of knowledge and insite. A walking enclyclopedia. We welcome those like her any day/occassion, etc. The West Coast always has such great contributions to Haif. :)

Must mention the ones most likely to bring up Houston's oldest and almost, but not forgotten, neighborhoods and note on HAIF in great detail:

JLWM8609

LarryDallas

Spikey2

Plumber2

Poppahop

Fez1964

and many Thanks for taking some us all back to a very carefree & fun time in our lives, childhood memories in this city. Big pat on the back. Cheers!

Thanks for the mention! I don't really check this particular forum out a lot, so this one almost totally slipped the radar. It's funny, I'm probably one of the younger members here, but somehow, I can comment on the history of forgotten neighborhoods in great detail. Go figure! I guess having an interest in history, researching said neighborhoods, living in a historic neighborhood and being interested in preservation helps. :)

Other great local historical contributors:

Another best photographer - JAX

More mysterious dissappearances - Danax/Papillonwings/NewOmd

Bringing the otherside of the world to Haif - Sarahiki/Western Gulf/Channel2news

Good old University news - OriginalTimmyChan's/MidtownCoog

and a peculiar quote from our fav "Plastic"

"Everything's plastic, but I love plastic. I want to be plastic."

signed Plastic

I haven' vanished, I am right here!!!!!

I give good credit to everyone that has a passion for our cities history!

By the way I was driving down Hutchins street the last week and more beautiful old homes are now gone. :angry2: Other topic I know. Dowling street now looks tooo different. Too modern.

Keep up trying to get good old stories from family, friends etc. There is still too much to be told!

You wanna unload some of those "New Wave threads"? I'm starting a cover band with Steve Candelari of "The Octanes", and I need some new stage clothes.

As insane as that sounds it can be done. I know a professional seamtress that can recreate anything and i do mean anything! She could use the originals and copy just as if it were knew. Keep in mind the waists have grown just a tiiiiiiny bit since 83-84. :D Your on your own with the Flock of Seagulls do.

Does anyone here remember "HoustonJack" or "Governor Aggie"? I liked reading their posts. I think HoustonJack eventually got himself banned. Also, someone named "Capt AWACS" always had a good sign-off after his witty posts.

... and I remain, in 77389, Day 13 without power from my friends at Centerpoint Energy. <_<

Governor Aggie is till here! Had a recent response on an East End topic so has to be on the top selection.

There used to be some good "players" joining in from the ChannelView and Northshore areas but they seemed to vanish into Haif oblivion.

Maybe there is a Haif Triangle like in The Bermuda Triangle realm? :lol:

This thread deserved a bump. Total nostalgia win upon the reread.

Question, like me, I left, sorta, and came back, noticed some members no longer posting anymore.

Kinda like going to a 20 class reunion, the 10 year everyone showed up, the 20 year, not so much.

Some people MIA:

musicman - 4 months, strange for our #3 poster

TJones - over a year

midtowncoog - 1 year

Vertigo58 - almost 3 years

houstonmacbro - almost a year, still see him on facebook

KimberlySayWhat - almost 2 years

Mark F. Barnes - almost 3 years

sheeats - almost a year, still see her on facebook

Parrothead - almost 3 years

Where y'all be?
