New People


I hope this isn't frowned upon, but I'm new and thought I'd make a topic for introductions. It's not because I'm an attention whore, but because for some reason I find myself disoriented without it. OCD much? Maybe. We'll see how this goes.

Anyway, I stumbled upon Fountains of Wayne 3 weeks ago. I got the urge to listen to "That Thing You Do," researched the song, and found my way to "Welcome Interstate Managers." They really write some phenomenal stuff. The first thing they reminded me of was They Might Be Giants, specifically my favorite TMBG songs like SenSurround, Purple Toupee, and Experimental Film. They also remind me of Morse-era Spock's Beard, minus the 20-some minute songs and liberal use of instrumentals.

Most of what I listen to is Prog rock, metal (power, prog, heavy, thrash, doom), and classical, but I do have a place in my heart for power pop.

I also pay attention to lyrics, which makes Fountains of Wayne a great choice as far as power pop is concerned. Their lyrics are smart, funny, and mostly inoffensive. Love it.

So yes, I'm new here, and I imagine this topic could be used by new people in the future to introduce themselves. Or it could just sink into obscurity or be deleted by staff. Either way.

Welcome! :bigsmile:

It's always great to see newbies joining this board because, as you've probably already noticed, there isn't a lot of action around these parts.




:happydance: look at this dance, it's incredible :rotfl:

Thanks for the welcomes guys!

Judging by the post counts, there has been some action here. And with a new album coming out, you never know.

A few of us have spent a bit too much time here over the years, lol.....

I'd hope that the board picks up with the new album/tour.

Again, welcome aboard. Feel free to merrily post away. :thumbs:

Hello. Funny thing is I never introduced myself on the board. Perhaps I should do that now?

... I believe you. :)






Also, you know what all these newcomers need?

A kitten.

But now I'm too lazy to supply such a thing.

It's okay. When you're new to things in this world (such as this forum), you need to face hard truths that may come along the lines early on, such as dead kittens.

With that in mind, you did a good deed, showing the newbies that horrifying, mangled piece of computerized roadkill.
