i've been lurking for a few weeks now, since before i moved out to Minneapolis, and decided i should finally step out of the shadows and say hello...so, um...hello.

i just moved up here about a week ago from Albuquerque, NM where, despite rumors to the contrary, the scene is quite amazing. not as big as the Twin Cities to be sure, but one fabulous club, lots of good local bands and whatnot.

as for me, i'm starting a PhD in medieval literature at UMN, read too much, write when i can, take black and white photos, spend too much time on my computer, make and listen to ebm/synthpop music...the usual suspects.

i've been to Hard Mondays and Thursday night at Ground Zero here so far, and i have to say that i'm incredibly sad that Hard Mondays will be closing. at any rate, i'll be there for the next two weeks, so if anyone sees a new girl-type face with fading purple/blue hair attached to it, feel free to say hello.

All I know about the scene in Albuquerque is that apparently a few people in it thought I was creepy when I was in town. Did you know that guy who made the Gother than Thou card game?

Welcome to the Twin Cities!

Heh. He's one of the people that thought I was creepy, I think. I know that we didn't like each other. Though I don't know, honestly, how much of that is true because most of it was told after having a falling out with the person who told me the things.
How's that for a convoluted sentence?

Anyway, feel free to say 'hi' sometime at HM. I'm pretty easy to spot and I usually hang out on the porch.

He's the most non-goth guy in the place with the most beautiful lush long hair. . . .

Yeah. I'll be the unfashionably tan fellow with lots of hair and glasses. Chances are that I will be wearing shorts as well.

Also, you could try visiting the website in my profile and browsing the pictures section. There are definitely a few of them.

I was there er... probably Spring of 2001. I don't remember for sure. I was visiting Meg. I brought a movie that everybody hated called <i>The Dark Backward</i> which had Judd Nelson as a three-armed comedian.

aha. Meg i know. then you probably would have been there when she was living with Kat? when Kat kicked her out, i moved in there...

"it's a small world...." etc

Small world. No kidding. This Kat wouldn't be a nineteen year old redheaded contortionist, would she?

According to Meg, Kat also thought I was creepy! For all I know Meg is lying about most of that. Hard to say. She is kind of kooky.

Sorry I missed you somehow!

Griffin, Urbane, nice to meet you monday night, sorry i was so... i was weirder than usual...

Damarious, Jezebel, thanks for putting up with me once again (etc)... and Damarious... no mystery pills! :razz:

not a problem at all.

No worries, Gryff (figure I'll call you that since you're making R&B references). When I say "kooky," I am demonstrating the tendency Midwesterners have to understate things.

So no offense taken at all.

You probably did see me. I was in a pretty big group of people, though and you may have been distracted by the people singing.

I saw you (Gryffyn), but was sort of pulled off. I'm a lot nicer than I may have appeared.

yes, i think Dove introduced us briefly...you have green in your hair, no?...or perhaps it was blue...hard to tell under the lights.
