Where am I, and why am I in this handbasket?
sockii started this whole mess. Don't ask her why.
Born in Ancona, Italy in 1972, sockii (sometimes known as Nicole Pellegrini) grew up in New York State and has always considered herself a fan. She can vividly recall being obsessed with The Beatles when she was only five years old, listening to her mother's old lps records non-stop and imagining crazy adventures about John, Paul, George and Ringo (and herself as the 5th Beatle, of course) in her head. For most of her early years she followed various musical acts avidly including Duran Duran, The Police, and Pink Floyd. She became active in Pink Floyd and The Police on-line fandom while in college at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology between 1990 and 1994. In 1994 she moved to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where she still resides today, and become active in television and movie fandom on-line as well, organizing websites and mailing lists for various fandoms such as The A-Team and later Babylon 5, Star Wars and Xena.
Currently she is primarily active in music fandom once again, obsessing over The Police just like the good old days and pursuing concert photography as a new passion. She is an avid collector of printed material related to her fandoms and is sadly prone to starting new web projects as soon as someone suggests an idea that sounds like a good one.
She is very glad her other half, vespapod, puts up with all of this nuttery and sometimes even foolishly encourages it.
If you want to make sockii happy, please check out her professional writings at Associated Content, where she is a Featured Contributor for the Travel and Local (Philadelphia) categories. But usually has a lot to say about The Police, too.
