In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act -Orwell
Hi I'm Chris.
10 years at any one website is a real long time...
So, what did I do at Epinions? - mainly travel, books, music and perfume.
I started here with TRAVEL reviews, as I wanted an excuse to write down and record my experiences. The fact that someone else may read and find my review useful is one big bonus.
With BOOKS, I think I could string along a reasonable review. Indeed I was a top reviewer for quite a while
MUSIC is my weakest area, but I love music so much, I just couldn't stop myself from writing reviews.
I know some may disagree with some of the events on my list as being a "top event" but, hey this is my space!:

I enjoy reading, learning, current affairs, cooking, eating, drinking, music, travel, walking and art (not necessarily in that order).
The Dante's Inferno Test has banished you to the Seventh Level of Hell! Here is how you matched up against all the levels:
'Tis a great mystery, but somehow you have come to belong in Jane Eyre; a random world of love, kindness, madness, bad luck and lunatic ex-wives. There really isn't much to say about the place you belong in. It's your place, and though it seems far from reality largly due to how random the events are, you seem to enjoy it. You belong in a world where not too many people understand you, and where you can be somewhat of a recluse. Take this quiz!
What Mythological Creature Are You (Many Results and Beautiful Pics)
Harpy: Harpies are beautiful creatures with wings that are said to have terrorized sailors. You are slightly arrogant and vain but you probably deserve to be. You are confident in your abilities and know what you want to achieve in life. Similar to vampires you will use almost any means to get what you want. You have some friends but you only hang around with people who think like you do. Take this quiz!
