\m/ What is an interesting fact about you?
-Erm, I suck. I am a weird German/Finnish/Norwegian/French heritage librarian thing who wants to be a cartoonist but has no guts. I am really interested in Scandi bands, mostly. I want as many recommendations as possible to get a good feel for what I might find followable. I am pretty new to metal, but I am really enjoying what I have tried. I am REALLY FUCKING INTIMIDATED BY THIS COMM, but I will do my best to be useful, funny, and polite. I was sent here with much urging from hakucho_cygnus after I freaked like a wimp. I love comics and silliness and cartoons and music and... *blah blah*
\m/ If you could be anything besides yourself for a day, what would you be, and why?
-I would want to be an astronaut on the Station. The reasons are obvious; SPACE ADVENTURE. I like realizing how big the world is.
\m/ What was the best metal concert you've been to?
-Er, I suck. I have only seen Dethklok/Mastodon, but have wanted to try more. (DESPERATE FOR AMON AMARTH AND OPETH AND APOCALYPTICA CONCERTS OHGOD.) That is where you guys come in. I want to learn enough to feel like I can justify my right to be at a great concert. I am a listener, but I don't know at what point I should start frequenting without looking like some random girlfriend who feels like she has to be there.
\m/ Do you play a music instrument? If yes, tell us more.
-I play flute, acoustic guitar, electric a bit, drums, and a touch of piano. I mostly sing. A LOT.
\m/ Post a photo of yourself. If not of yourself, then of your art, or any picture you'd like to share. [If you dont have an Image Host, I suggest using one such as http://www.photobucket.com . The image must show up in your introduction, not just the link.]
Weirdest AND most recentish! CONVENIENT.
DAH THIS SHIT IS NEW. Be gentle??
