Welcome to the board, tell us a bit about yourself if you like?

My name's Sean (as some of you know, and some of you may gather from my username). I like things, music, tacos, and my girlfriend especially.
Hopefully I can help people out here and contribute to what I hope are some awesome conversations.
I'm a MySpace whore (as seen here (http://www.myspace.com/indecisean)). Feel free to add me.

My name is also Alex, but I don't claim to be the future of much of anything. I enjoy, obviously, listening to the dolls, as well as political activism, debate, a lot of other music like death cab and the postal service, and trying to contribute what little I can to the world before I meet my imminent demise.

Post by: 85283-071 on July 16, 2007, 05:47:41 PM
I am the former Surgeon General of the Mongolian Secret Sevice. I am the manager of a rock band called Mortal Angst. The name sounds cheesy, but the members are all over eighty years old... so, ya know- that shit is legit. I am actually a time traveler. My era of origin is about six hundred years from now. I am here because I always wanted to be present for The Revolution of Consciousness. Y'all don't know what that is yet... but you will! This is so exciting.

It is everything I can do to refrain from sexual innuendo or blatant sexual references at any and during every given moment. This is a by-product of the psychlogical state precipitated by never having masturbated.

I have four pets. They are all dead, but I'm working on re-animation. One was alive when I caught it. The others- well, your guess is as good as mine.

I drink from city rivers. It never gets old.

I am still the same Malyss (sounds like "malice") that I was on the other board, but some call me "Heather." Others may call me "Maurice" 'cause I speak of the pompitous of love or not.

I play the ukulele and I am learning to play the guitar and accordion. I have one semester left at college before I earn my B.S. in psychology and certificate in gerontology. I have already started a psych related job working with brain injured people. Tomorrow is my last day of training. I'm nervous, excited and scared all at once.

The ghetto boys are catcalling me
As I pull my keys from my pocket
I wonder if this method of courtship
Has ever been effective
Has any girl in history said
Sure, you seem so nice, let's get it on
Still, I always shock them when I answer
"Hi my name is Amanda."

Hello, I was a lurker on the old board because I was afraid I would be looked down upon for some reason (but I can't say that, because I'm egotastic and look down upon my fellow humans).

Mainly because I made a Star Wars esque version of the Dolls, a pair of looney vulture aliens who go around singing and poking space elves XP
Also because I associate the song Colorblind (I don't suppose there's a live version, somewhere out there) with Chinese River Dolphins. I tend to associate a whole bunch of Dresden Dolls songs with river dolphins and their reincarnations. Somebody on another forum asked if I was on Death Sticks.

I had a bunch of songs by the DD back in 2005, but lost them. My interest resurfaced when I saw Yes, Virginia for sale at the bookstore. I bought it and eventually got into it. I tend to associate these songs with things other than the person who wrote them. Like I tend to associate Half-Jack with a hermaphrodic alien commander. So, errr, hi!

Hi, my name is Jade, and i like to read, write poetry, sometimes songs, and musicals. I love the Dolls, cause they resemble human beings, as apposed to 'normal music," as my friends would call it. My favorite color is yellow, and i am really in to fantasy. Let's see, I am really happy to be on this forum, cause I have been looking for a place online to settle down. To me, forums are like families, and I most recently had to leave mine behind. i like Amanda am a open book, so I know that this will be the place for me. I also believe that music is the one true language that all human beings know, and that should be our comunication. I alos enjoy philosophy, and am on the Elexorien forum, if anyone just happpens to hear of them. I post once in a great while on the Blind Guardian forum, but not much. Well, I will see you all on the forum.

well when I said that I meant that it amuses me, but at the same time I feel bad for the guy that keeps having to go back. like the mythological dude who has to roll up the stone up a hill but everytime he gets to the top he slips and the rock rolls back down, and he has to do that for eternity. it's his punishment. I think his name's Sysiphis. I can't spell it but it's in that Red Bull commercial. so that's why it also makes me mad at the same time. but don't worry I dont hate you.

Or you can tell your friends just what a fool I've been
And laugh and joke about me on the phone

You can tell my arms to go back onto the phone
You can tell my feet to hit the floor
Or you can tell my lilps to tell my fingertips
They won't be reaching out for you no more

But don't tell my heart .... awwww  :love5:

I stuck with my old one, both name and picture. Those of you who remembers me might recognize them.

Hey everybody, I was kindof silly and posted a newbie thread in the general area. I changed the topic into "hey, do you compose?" sort of thing so I made it better  :) . Anyway...more basic Gail data
My real name is Gail.
I am a theatre major/ closet music minor/ closet sociology minor.
I am majoring in acting, directing and managment.
I also compose and want to write musicals.
The dresden dolls have been one of my main inspirations for this piano composition / closet music minor-ness.

I am usually that girl sitting in a random corner of campus dressed somewhat like a hippie and writing in a journal.


Anyway, that's what I've got for now. I'm totally procrastinating on a paper that's do tomorrow because I have the attention span of a ferret when it comes to writing papers.

Hi Guys,
  I guess that I never properly introduced myself.......... my name is Hayley, I am a 30 year old feminist artist.  I went to The University of The Arts in Philadelphia and am a member of Mensa (don't make fun of me for being a dork.)  My husband, Robert is a tattoo artist, and I am like a walking canvas of sorts...... I have 6 tattoos (7th coming soon.)  One of which is seen in my "sig."  I am in the process of getting a leg sleeve dedicated to "Girl Anachronism."  I live in NJ (close to NY,) but I miss the city horribly.  I have a lovely kitty named Pickles who sits next to my easel when I paint.  He particularly likes to take my brushes and hide them............ he's odd (like me.)  I credit the ingenius Amanda Palmer and Brian Viglione for "re-lighting the fire under my ass." I am very sick and have been basically bed-ridden for many years, and Amanda inspired me to start painting again and enjoy my life.  She means the whole world to me. I am finishing the first in a new series of paintings inspired by the song "Bad Habit."  I will post it once it's done.......... but not yet  :)

Hello!  My name is Stephanie.  I am sleep deprived and mistook this Shadowbox for the last one...  That tells you a little bit about me, I guess.

More:  I'm from Brisbane, Australia, and recently had the opportunity to see Zen Zen Zo's adaption of Dracula through my school.  I saw Regina Spektor earlier in the year, and The Cure last Wednesday night.  All amazing!  Future prospects for me include... moving to the UK next year, becoming a publisher/performer/librarian/writer (haven't decided yet...)

I've only been to one 'Dolls concert, but it was the best night of my life ^____^  Oh yes indeed.  Next year, when I'll be living near London, I'll have more opportunities to see bands perform.  Hopefully...

Hello all, I'm Katelyn... or Käti... or Kate... whichever you prefer. I'm 23 going on 24 and I'm going into college to study to be a music therapist. I've heard the Dresden Dolls since 2004 but I got into them further thanks to Jade Reichert (my best friend). She even says in some instances I look like Amanda Palmer (not in this userpic though.) I primarily like melodic, progressive, and power metal and obscure goth and synthpop stuff. Here's just a few of the many bands I have in my collection: Blind Guardian, Demons & Wizards, Iced Earth, Metallica, Black Sabbath, Scorpions, Dream Theater, Helium Vola, Within Temptation, Freezepop, Tanzwut, Subway to Sally, Unheilig...

Anyway, I sing, play piano by ear, though I'm not trained that well and only know part of a Dresden Dolls song, heehee, I play guitar and dabble a bit in drums and percussion instruments. Singing is my strong-point though. I love being active in disability rights and I'm one of those people that wants to be healthier but doesn't look the part (i.e. walking, eating veggies, but still has a Hobbit belly, etc.) Oh, speaking of Hobbits, about my name... I love Noldorin Elves and I have the dark hair and dark eyes like they do, but I'm as tough as a Dwarf and not one to mess with, and when I'm light-hearted, youthful, or just plain pigging out on good food, I'm a lot like a Hobbit, so put them all together and you have a Noldwarfit!

I am currently on TheSchwag message board (A grateful dead tribute band) Love It, Love it. The community and love we all share is brilliant.

I definately see this being a entirely different situation, but I hope to maybe make a few friends, and learn more about this remarkable band, besides how much I love their music.

I adore Amanda, she is inspirational and honest. amazingly talented...

Brian, he is beautiful and stimulating.

Wow, so that is really all I have to say for now. Chances are I will be a big mouth like always and become a top poster. Until then...
Shringara!

We must love in admiration and admire love.

Yes. I'm American.
I speak only French 'un petit peu'.
Anyways.

I'm a singer / songwriter. I play piano and sing moderately well. My music is kinda between Amanda Palmer / Regina Spektor / Fiona Apple in nature... all these different influences clashing together like some kind of ugly discordant mess. It's really quite fantastic.

I'm not so much an amateur songwriter. I'd call myself in the process of finding my unique style. :]

Hello everyone!

My name is Cassie. I'm from Texas and I hope to meet a few other dolls fans through this board.  

I don't play any instrumets, I've tried to play piano and guitar but my hands can't seem to coordinate.
I'm the promotional director for a band called Miser that is doing really well.
I'm obsessed with rockstar juiced energy drinks (guava flavor) and I despise mushrooms.  :buck2:

IM OMNICELL:      Im very intelligent, and this sometimes causes problems...   Im a  composer of classical, jazz, stride, swing, rock/vocal and new age.  Pianist, drummer, beginning guitarist..     A writer, public speaker/ Artist.  University Grad with several extra years of
university work.. More then I care to share, As I like to hide alot , no matter where I go.. Im getting better though..       .....Im an introvert..
     I  collect data like a sponge, process it through internal filters of many colors and come to my own conclusions about the world... 

I am obsessed with the Dolls.. Especially fascinated with Amanda's contribution to society As I strongly feel she is making a change in many peoples lives even if she doesn't know it .. I know it..

.......She's the sister I aways dreamed off having........
And Brian is a great drummer with excellent stick control and technique... 

Im looking to get involved more ...here.....   In someway.. However, Im not sure how yet.... 
Just Glad to be here, and hoping that the Dolls will be playing in the Seattle area soon......

Cheers

I'll stick up for strangers if I feel they aren't being treated fairly. I don;t take shit from anyone. I am back for no apparent reason.

i play violin & guitar, write poetry sometimes, take photos, and surround myself with music and art as much as i possibly can.

looking forward to getting to know all of you.

Good evening.

My name is Vernon.
I have a lovely wife and 2 kids, all of whom love the Dresden dolls. ( The 2.8 year old just said "Oooh, its BOOTIFUL music" when I put them on in the car tonight, I think that counts. )

I'm a dork. I play RPGs. I listen to all kinds of music, from obscure metal bands to EBM, industrial, opera, gypsy, big band, swing, western, and jazz.
I used to do renaissance reenactment, but had to step away for a few years.

My right brain and left brain regularly get into fights, and more often than not my left brain takes my right brain out behind the tool shed and beats it with a shovel while screaming "YOU'RE THE REASON WE CAN'T HAVE NICE THINGS!!!"

And I just bought black dish towels with skeletons on them. No, they're not just for Halloween. ( Dorky and home-body all rolled into one )

I also have almost every live recording I've found. (<--Fandom bragging..:p). The Dresden Dolls are my absolute Favorite Band evar.I am about to have a son and I'm sure he will love them too, oh yes, he will, his first words will probably be "You motherfuckers, youll sing someday" Amanda, I'm in love with you. Brian, I love you. My god I love you fuckers.

I'm Danielle. HI. I love music...the Dresden Dolls being my second favorite band after AFI (woo woo four year anniversary of hearing AFI coming up! ^_^)XD I got into the Dolls about 6 months ago (my best friend got Dresden Dolls from the library and ripped it for me, starting a never-ending which obsession that far surpassed her's XD). I am constantly amazed by Brian's drumming skill (I've grown up around many drummers...including my father who is also a Brian) and am often in awe of everything Amanda. They're great...though I'm sure I didn't have to tell you that. ;)

Let's see...well I'm 16, love art (both creating and viewing), and play violin. Acting is my passion; my greatest hope is to be able to spend the majority of my life in theatre. I am very into school (yes, nerd alert) and like helping others. My second choice of career is to be an Occupational Therapist. I'm safe-haven to two cats and one very special girl who has loved me more than I ever thought anyone could (my girlfriend, Kayla.) And-well-I like to talk. XD

Well...there's my life story more or less. *not skiddish at all*

Hello everyone,

I'm Jeanne, 20 years old, French, currently living in Czech Republic's second largest city ('cause central Europe is where real life lies, kids... it's where IT's happening!). I have a passion for central & eastern Europe. I happen to study languages (currently polish + czech), but it is only one of my too many loves/vocations... I'm not a fan of the Dresden Dolls and will likely never be, be it only for the reason that I'm constitutionally unable to be a "fan" of anything or anyone, however I like their music and the spirit that goes with it. I feel that while most certainly being a music band, the Dolls are a bit more than merely their music, and this is actually why I'm here.

Hi, I'm Crystal. I believe I was on the old shadowbox awhile back, and have now finally re-registered. I have been a fan for quite some time. And have officially made a line of beautiful fire with spreading the love to some of the most wonderful people I have ever met over the years.

Hi, I'm Mel, and I've been a board member for a while now.
I'm finishing high school this year and hating the fact that I'm going to have to go out into the real world in a matter of months. I want a BA in English and a life on Broadway.

Thanks, Juliet. I'm pretty excited about graduating, but worried about getting into uni.

Don't worry too much about that. I feel they-as in your student advisor, teachers, parents-put more pressure than is needed on that aspect. If you stay focused on your studies and what you want out of a university/college you'll be just fine. It is a bit overwhelming, but it's quite liberating to not be in high school anymore.

Best of luck with it all ;)

Mm. This is my...second time here? Yes, I believe that's right. Not that I left on a bad note, I just wasn't here long enough to leave on any note. That aside, I think I may well stay this time around. First and foremost- I'm Bruce. I write, act, read, sing, revel in my grandiloquence, etc. I love the Dolls with every part of my body...even my peepee! That aside, I'm a very diverse character. My favorite authors are Salinger, Bradbury, Gaiman, A.M. Holmes...and really anything by anyone that doesn't suck. My name is a Bowie reference, get it or die. And first and foremost, after two opportunities missed- I will be seeing the Dolls in Tampa, despite it being about an hour away. I'd go further in a heartbeat. All that aside, my prospects are high for this time around.

Hello yall. My name is Drew and I live in Santa Cruz, California. Someone on the Scarlett Johansson board I visit kept mentioning the Dolls, so I told her to send me some of their material. I have been hooked ever since. I have yet to see them live, but I know I will at some point. They did play in the True Colors festival here in San Fran earlier in the summer, but I didn't want to pay the huge price just to see them. I look forward to frequenting this board.

Hello.

I am Domi.... or Dominique.

I am 20 years old... Going to school for who knows what. I changed my major like 11 times, making me now a third year sophmore i think? Anyway, I was going to school at NAU, majoring in photography, then changed to psychology, then changed to Womens Studies, then moved to tucson for a girl who ripped my heart out, so now going to a community college and I think I am majoring in Art now, and am going to go to Art School in the fall.

I love art, music, reading, writing (i have kept a journal since I was twelve and think I am writing in my fifteenth... so i  basically journal and write poetry...), I work at a record store... Zia if anybody is from AZ... I am a feminist... a big lez.... liberal.......... and i think i have some sort of short term memory disorder. OH and i quit smoking today so have been in a horrible mood. OH OH. I am a Madonnaist.

The only person I know in real life on this forum is Heather. I love her. But I love to make new friends.
I am only a part of two other forums....
absolutemadonna.com (madangfan)
and
gia-carangi.com (prettiestgirl)

anybody from tucson or a part of those forums???

i feel like that was information overload.
sorry.

Hi everybody! My name is Mariël, I'm 20 years old and I live in the Netherlands. I love music! I play drums myself for about ten years now. I also play a little keyboard/piano and guitar, and I love to learn as much as possible. Besides music I also love photography and I'm interrested in psychology.

A friend of mine introduced me to the Dresden Dolls and since that moment I'm pretty addicted to them :P Never seen them live unfortunately, since they don't visit the Netherlands that much. And when they where here, I didn't really knew them, so missed those performances ;) Hopefully they'll visit our little country sometime! :)

So.. hi! *waves*

I've been into the dolls since I was 12.  I didn't really understand half the things they were singing about at the time but it wasn't long before I did.  Haha.
I'm an addict but I assume that just about everyone on here is.
I'm also into Bright Eyes, Regina Spektor, The Decemberists, Cat Power, and of course, Rocky Horror Picture Show.  Yes, I do count that as music because I commonly throw it in my cd player wired through one of those cassette tapes, put it on full blast and sing along as I swerve back and forth on the road in my '86 cutlass ciera.   Heh, that was one hell of a run on sentence.  Sorry about that.

Hi everyone,
I'm pretty new here.
I discovered The Dresden Dolls maybe about 8 months ago through a friend, & have been hooked ever since!
I live in England & have just turned eighteen, which is scarily old I feel.
I'm studying for my A levels, which are seriously stressful at this minute!
I am a musician of sorts (but a bit of a rubbish one!), and I adore all things horse.

At the moment the run in to winter is getting me down a bit 'cause there is hardly any daylight & it keeps raining & it's suddenly turned really cold too.

I'm also writing far too much on here because the longer I write the longer I can avoid getting back to what i should be doing: my performance investigation, which is a total disaster zone.  :'(

Love,
      Rachel.

hiya folks,

i'm a newbie. my name is max... well thats a nickname. but anyway i'm 22, i live in southern california.  i was introduced to the dolls' music back in july. of course right AFTER they were in san diego. the funny part is a lot of my friends love them and i had never ever heard of them.  So anyway I fell in love with the music and the passion.  i'm so sad they aren't coming back here for a while together... but hopefully Amanda or Brian or both will come through on a solo tour. i always miss out on stuff. they were litterly down the street from where i hang out and i had no idea they were there. Anyway that will never happen again.

cheers,

The reason my old name on the old box remains a secret is solely because none of you would remember me. I registered within  the first few months, got bored after a week, and came back for a couple hours every six months. There weren't any affairs, friendships, or anything else noteworthy forged or broken. So I'd have to reintroduce myself whereas this way I can just pretend you're all jerks who don't remember this highly significant older member because of your comparitive newb-ishness. But yeah... I don't really have Internet access so chances are this is almso my last weekend on the forum.

My name is Jen.  And I just became an active newbie this week after I saw the Dresden Dolls in Chicago.
I don't know anyone in my hometown that like the DD, so I figured it would be cool to meet new and interesting people. 
Likes: Rats (can you tell by the pic & the name??), Anthony Bourdain and first orgasms (in the morning, afternoon or evening).
Dislikes: sports, reheated pizza and waking up in the morning.

Take care ya'll,
Jen

Hi there! I am Rachel...long time lurker and full time fan of the Dolls.

Currently, I spend the majority of my time trudging around in the frozen tundra that I live in right outside of Chicago. Otherwise, you will probably find me stuck in various science labs and lectures at the university. Pre-med student by day, concert-going addict at night.

Just how I like it.

That would be "Sweatys".

Derived from "Sweaty Socks"

Rhyming Slang for

"Jocks"

which is slang for a Scotsman.

muscle-brained type.  I wonder which came first: the ethnic slang, or the athletic undergarment?

Welcome Casey.  I am also male, 5'11", and occasionally talk to myself, when I can pick
my own voice out of the others in my head.  If you look around a bit, you should have no
trouble finding people who like talking (even to you, maybe), who like long walks on the
beach, long waaaaaaayy-too-intimate talks (see damn near any thread in Anarchy), and
even people who will correct you when you mis-spell the name of a delicious beverage...

Favorite food, color, Bob Marley song, George W. Bush quote, [pick a way-too-personal detail]...

Anyway, college scheduling is based on the assumption that you're mature enough to manage

I'm a devoted Steampunk (or devotee to Steampunk, if you prefer), which may turn out a bit annoying the 7-thousandth time i reference Nicola Tesla, or use terms like "Ahoy-hoy". I will attempt to stay tolerable.

Other than that, there's not much to say of me other than the fact that I'm a vegetarian, a lover of cthuloid horror, and just learned the Modern Russia is a semi-presidential republic consisting of 83 federal subjects. That's a lot of subjects.

AWWW thanks for the welcome!

The idea of anarchy and peace being mutually exclusive is a falsity. And I'd be more than happy to debate the topic with you!

OOooh. What are you reading?

Post by: CeeGBee on March 31, 2008, 01:13:27 AM
Well, I was referring to your multitude of posts, but I read a bit outside the SillyBox.

Currently it's a well-researched, but not-so-well-written account of Soviet and Chinese
attacks on American surveillance flights (what we'd call "spy planes" if the roles were reversed).


Title: Re: Introduce Yourself
Post by: Seb on March 31, 2008, 01:15:22 AM
when did these "attacks" take place?
Title: Re: Introduce Yourself
Post by: CeeGBee on March 31, 2008, 01:29:44 AM
when did these "attacks" take place?
They started almost immediately after WW2.  The research for the book originally centered on the shoot-down
of a C-130 (specially configured to monitor Soviet communications) in September of 1958.  Other "incidents" have
ocurred as recently as 2001; you may (or may not) recall a collision between a Chinese jet fighter and a US Navy
EP-3E Aries.  The Chinese jet was trying to force the American plane to enter Chinese airspace then force it to
land at a Chinese base.  The collision caused the fighter to crash, and the pilot was killed.  The American plane
was damaged and had to make an emergency landing at the Chinese base.  Names were called, fingers were
pointed, politicians pontificated, and eventualy the US got its crew back, but not the plane.

As it happened, US policy was always to stay just outside Communist airspace while listening to radio signals
or monitoring radar emissions.  Of course, what happens a hundred miles out at sea, with no witnesses, is a
matter for debate.

Greetings,

My name is Bart and my goal in life is to get a picture of Amanda Palmer biting me like a zombie.

One of my friends has one and I think she got it through the Brigade.  So here I am.


So... what's up?
Title: Re: Introduce Yourself
Post by: ~*johanna*~ on April 02, 2008, 09:49:53 PM
Well, I'm back. Hey everyone! So I was on this forum for quite last year. I found about about the Dolls in early 2006 and was fortunate enough to see them when they came to SF that October. I wasn't able to see them with the True Colors tour, which sucked, but now I just saw on their MySpace that they are coming to SF again this May. I'm so excited. And that excitement led me back to this forum. I forgot all my old crap, like passwords and such. So I just signed up again.

A bit about me... I'm 21 and am mid-way through college (it's been pretty slow-going for me). In August I am moving up North to a University near Portland, OR to get a major in English Literature. My goal is to be able to study abroad in London in a couple years. But who knows? I'm interested in so many different things; my major may change and I might end up somewhere I didn't expect. Whatever. I'm just going to let things unfold.

I hope to maybe meet up with people in SF, as my only DD-loving friend is living in NYU, and my other friends are either living far away with families and husbands, or they just don't like DD. *shrugs* Again, whatever! I love this band so much and I'm definitely going to be there in May.

Hello, everyone, I'm Emma. I'm female and almost 17.

I have a wall in my room covered with pictures and drawings and comics and pretty much anything that makes me happy. I like to embrace my "manlier" side through my woodworking class. I played the drums for four years a while back and I'm picking them back up now. I wear glasses, or, at least, I should. Wearing them doesn't actually happen that often. As a general rule, my room's a mess, but it's clean today. I'm currently reading Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen and it's absolutely fabulous and also insanely overdo. I practically live in book stores, especially ones that also sell music.

Er.. I think that's it for now. Hi!

Hmmmm....  Certainly not my intent....  Humblest apologies if I freaked anyone out.
Anyway, I didn't say "everybody hit on the almost-fifteen-year-old".  I directed my comment to
"The Shadowbox Boys" which lets us old guys out, and I pointed out that in a couple of years
(when she's had plenty of time to figure out who here is creepy and/or just-not-nice) she's likely
to be one of those amazing Icelandic girls one sees...  well, wherever one sees Icelandic folks.
I suppose there's a rational explanation, but I've never met an unattractive Icelander.

I am whiter than white...  and not in that fun ultra-pale Irish way.
There's a picture down in "Shameless Self-Promotion" where you can see my legs.  If it hadn't been
totally overcast when the picture was taken, my friend's camera would have been destroyed by the
glare.   As for the cello, I'm not at all embarrassed to have played, but I kinda wish I was currently
able to play an instrument...  any instrument.

I dunno, you don't look freakishly pale to me.  At least your legs don't match your socks =P  But whatever.  Also, smilies are easily misinterpreted.  If you really wanted to and had the time you could probably learn to play an instrument.  But that's a huge "if" and it's hard to find time for that kind of thing when you have a life.  If you do find time for an instrument though, you should learn piano so you can play DD songs  ;D

Just as long as you know that they are all copyrighted (except the covers) and selling them would be illegal and I can sue you.

What kind of shoes do you like?

I'm just not too great at introduction things.

let's see. I play guitar. mainly rock, but a little bit of Irish folk music, and I'm open to just about anything else.

I act in fairly small, local plays frequently. I've been in shows such as A Midsummer Night's Dream, and A Funny Thing Happened on The Way to the Forum. I also do lighting on the occasion.

I'm not really a fan of most shoes. I wear flipflops pretty much everyday, but I do have an awesome pair of rainboots.

and I'd have to say strawberry out of those two options, but blackberry would be my top favorite.
Title: Enter the Bastard of God
Post by: Radarmantro on May 04, 2008, 03:22:20 PM
Greetings for all o' ya. I am known around as Radarmantro around the internets, and it suits me more or less sufficiently. As an internet participant I can be an unpleasent bastard, but I try to behave most of the time. Presently I am not generally view'd as someone very important, apart from the fact that I am the divine, but largely unknown Bastard of God (bastard-son of the now dead God (Nietzsche kill'd him afterall) and elder brother of the departed Jesus H. Christ (and personally I am not very interested in who it was that killed him. I just quite grumpy with humankind for his alledged death, and let's face it peeps; he did not come back. I have at least not seen him since he was kicked out of Heaven to walk amongst you mortals. Poor sod...)).

But, regarding my person, there exist a number of lables which would more or less fit the different aspects of my ever-changing personality. Pianist in the making, anti-prohibition, semi-intellectual, secularist, divine, silly, coffee-hater, nihilist, fail'd troll, hobby philosopher, poet etc. These lables only encompass a tiny fraction of the universe of categories which makes up my temporary reality tunnel. As I mentioned, some would experience me as a rather unpleasent character here on the internets, and these feelings usually derive from my attitude to rather controvercial topics. But try to cope with me, and I can be a quite nice guy sometimes.

But when it comes to my relation with The Dresden Dolls, I accidentally heard one or two of their songs, and was quite impressed with the sound, mood and overall musical quality of the music. You can say it so plainly that the combination of Amanda Palmer's very spicey piano and the rock-like drumming of Brian Viglione appealed to my ears. I have been an enthusiastic listener and supporter of their endeavours afterwards, even more so after reading about The Dresden Dolls on wiki.

Well, that should be enough for now. If any of you have any questions regarding my divine persona, please don't hold back. I know you mortals can be curious beings, and having the heir to the throne of Heaven on your own forum can create excitement, so come with what you have kay?

Umm, on the serious side. Because my physical body was born in Norway, and despite my current state as divine entity, I do have some slight spelling mistakes when it comes to English.

Oh, by the way, my godly eyes just discovered the Spell Check button! Now I shall become ever more powerful, muahahahaha!  :D

tsk tsk.. not to worry. My position as a transcendent being can be seen as a more philosophical topic than anything else, and won't attract the attention of potential super villains (and other interesting lulz-spreaders). No, I consider my main concern to be a Nietzsche Jr. coming along and proclaims "Bastard of God ist tot" and poff! I end up dying like my father. I mean, you don't mess with Nietzsche. He ist panzer!

Why I Love the Dresden Dolls: I saw the Dresden Dolls open for NIN back when they were doin that and fell in love...it was "Gravity" that did it.
I have seen them twice since then (once at the Starland in NJ and once this past New Year's in NY, which was the GREATEST SHOW EVER)

Hello there.
Here's some facts about me:
I'm a redhead.. My whole life i've been called Gingerkid.. or Strawberrykid as we call it in Denmark. But I don't mind: I like strawberrys :).. and I must admit, sometimes I remind myself of a strawberry.
I play alot of funky bass-rythms and I enjoy.
I love to sit in my backyard among my chickens while reading books(most of the time work of Paul Auster).
I love culture. Diffrent kind of cultures: I love to travel.
I'm probaly gonna a gardenarchitect.. like my mom.. and grandmother.. But if that wont work out, I'd like to work as a pedagogue.

...

By the way, my name is Sidsel and I live in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Hello, all.

I used to have another account, but it went by the wayside... I think it was Surabaya Johnny?

I was quite a pain the arse back then, but since that time my life's gotten itself somewhat in order, so I'm relatively calmer. Although, there is sarcasm left dwelling within me because, after all, there is a bitter queen residing in my soul.

Anyway, I enjoy costuming, 1920's/30's fashion and culture, Sunkist orange soda, and of course, the Dresden Dolls.


Cheers.

I've decided to introduce myself, after a long time of spying on you people. It's a verry lively forum. My name is Adriana but i like to be called Rozie, I'm from Romania, (i searched romania on this forum and all i could find was a pic of the poet Mihai Eminescu and someone who looks totally like him and that was really entertaining :) ) . I must be honest... with myself i guess and say that i heard about the dolls from my ex b'friend who was totally obsessed with brian and... mostly his hat  :icon_king: . he played this trick on me and he told me that the dolls are coming to romania and i was all like... oh my good and stuff and after that he gave me the roundhouse and paradise dvds he ordered on amazon heh. i watched paradise the night he gave me the dvds half undresed 'cuz i pressed the play buton when i was in the middle of jumping into my pj's . all the energy and all the beauty of that dvd kept me in place for 2 hours or somth with my pants down and my mouth open ( ah, shit, that sounds totally porn  >:D ... oh well) . bowth of the dvds were amazing . i could've watched them for hours but after a period of time i separated with my b'friend and he kept the dvds (witch he gave to a local band frontman he knows and haven't seen them for like 3 months or somth, hah, bastard  :violent5: )
i've recently discovered that i'll be going to london at the end of august and i checked the calendar and amanda has a gig on 21st that's exactly when i get to london, but they're all sold out.  :BangHead: if anyone has a spare ticket or somth, please do tell me, 'cuz i've never seen the dolls live or amanda or brian (jeez... that sounds really sad and makes either romania a shithole that no one heard about or me a lazy ass bitch that never left the country , witch is not true  angel ) and that would just be the most amazing thing ever (to see the dolls live, not for me to be a lazy ass bitch ).
well... i guess that's about it. hope i'll enjoy this place even though i'm all shiny and new here and i don't quite know anyone...  :happy11:

Hello! My name is Steven, and I'm from Maryland. :) I've been following The Dresden Dolls for about a year now, and I saw them play live back in December at Rams Head Live. I just found the Shadow Box after digging around dresdendolls.com
I can't wait until Amanda's album drops in September, and I've been checking her videos and blogs like crazy recently.
Nice to meet you all!

he needs any (more?) crazy women in his life...   ;)

Hi everybody,
I'm living in Germany and came across the name „Dresden Dolls“ by reading a new book last year (hopeless romantic teenie fantasy fiction, but definitely worth it since it might have been my only chance to discover all this wonderful music-art-broad-mindedness-forum-amanda'sblog-thing).
In the story the band was mentioned along with some other music artists, and when I checked out their music it was like - Rachmaninoff, yeah, I know - Sugarcult... well... okay... - The Dresden Dolls. Wait. What's that?? Strange. Fascinating, but ... strange (resulting from the fact that all I had by then was the video version of Coin-operated boy, Girl Anachronism and some nice pictures of Amanda and Brian, I guess).
A couple of days went by. Then I discovered the Roundhouse-DVD at a friend's house. Watched and absolutely fell in love.
Going to see them live at the Pukkelpop soon – can't wait!  :D

@EdwardsBells: Nice to meet you. I'm pretty obsessed with the Cullens, too.  :)

but as you might have guessed - I'm HAPPY!

Title: Re: Introduce Yourself

The key difference being that Len has a human brain filtering the input-output
so that it's not simply an auto-response.


Still, I wonder if we might not find a 'bot to do the job for less...  Maybe we could
find someone in Bombay who'll respond to posts for 75 cents a day...

Wait, Len works for free...  I suppose outsourcing him would be counterproductive.

Ya might say that would be [say it with me] NotQuiteNecessary!

I've been a member of the Shadowbox under several different usernames for the last few years, but I've continuously forgotten said usernames and their passwords.  So hopefully this will be the last one for a while!

I've been a fan of the Dolls for almost four years now.  I was turned on to them by an ex-friend but my appreciation for them has definitely grown on its own, totally by my own accord.  I just got "No, Virginia" this week, and am more than in love with it (especially "Sorry Bunch" - it describes me and my friends with frightening accuracy ;D).

Couple of random facts about me.. I'm living in NY now with my partners (I'm poly), and I'm transgender (Female-to-Male).  We have a Pit Bull who should actually be called a Pain-in-the-Ass- Bull.  I live life to some degree of extreme, as I'm sure most people do who are on here.  Just figured I'd give you all an introduction (albeit, a slight repeat, since I've had so many other accounts on here before now).

Also, to close - "HI!!!" *waves wildly*

Having bought tickets for an Amanda Palmer show in Amsterdam this morning (my first concert in over five years!) I browsed around their website a bit and stumbled upon this place. It looked interesting. So, you know. Tah dah. Account made! :headbang:

I'm a recent art school graduate and now putz around in administrative work and translating.

I tend to be terrible about keeping up with forums but I thought I'd introduce myself in case I do drop a few comments here and people wonder who the heck that Cory person is.

Hello everyone. I'm Priscilla. It's nice to meet you all in an informal electronic setting.
I'm not new to the Dolls, but I am new to this forum. So yes, cupcakes and hellos.

Um, I'm from Long Island and I'm... you know, a college student. I was wondering if anything is planned in the near future for the Brigade in the tri-state area. Because I'd really like to help out. :D
Hey guess what! I'm from Long Island and got to college too! ;) Do you go to school on LI or elsewhere?

I haven't seen any brigade like festivities on LI, but usually at a dolls show in NYC there's the brigade and other cabaret/street performance stuff happening.

Woo, go us! I go to a little community college over by my house in the 'hood (Brentwood, yes, feel bad for me). Where do you go?

I'm actually not far from Brentwood at all - I'm from Hauppauge!

I go to school in Binghamton... yes it's part of the SUNY system haha, Binghamton University!

the one i'm referring to closed 5 to 10 years ago
or maybe it changed owners, and the bakery half changed
Hauppauge Bakery & Caterers
900 Route 111
Hauppauge, NY 11788

between Veterans Highway and Smithtown Bypass on West side across from
the Fire House

I've lived here hmm about 18 years.

it may be that the bakery went with one new owner, and came back with another

Come to think of it, I know a new liquor store just opened up but I don't remember if it was near where the bakery was, or if that's what the bakery turned in to. Probably the former. I'll be over there in the next couple days and I'll let you know if it's close for good.

Ahahahaa, I never said I went to BHS. I actually survived high school, haha. I went to school in Estero/Naples, Florida which is way down south.

I suspect we have another Dane or two around here somewhere, but I can't think who it might be.
Then again, maybe there isn't anyone else from your country...  That would mean you have to be

And I got it. I just didn't think it was funny and actually /don't/ know anyone who says it.

Oh, and btw, kudos on getting straight to the nitty gritty with the seatbelt thang - who cares if it'll save my life?

It's good, I have one more year left. I co-host a radio show on their station WHRW with my twin sister and i love love love it - that's what makes it so awesome.

Hello all my name's Candra and I enjoy the cyclops smiley. :icon_cyclops_ani: I'm from Florida and my air conditioner has been broken for 4 days. I'm not new to the Dresden Dolls (I've been a fan since right before the self-titled album came out) and I've been a lurker for a while on the box (probably right around when things switched to the new box), but I've always felt like I'd be imposing on the family here, despite how supportive everyone is, and then I'd say "meh.. I have too much poopieshit to do anyway." I've been a bit less busy lately though, and I just wanted to introduce myself.

I...love the piano. And kitty cats. And movies. And some video games. And art of every form. And starting my sentence with a conjunction. And you guys. And uncountable randomness-es..es..es.. that I find and decide to take a likin' to.

Also

Curiosities:
Fav TV Show of all Time: Buffy the Vampire Slayer (And all other Joss-ities)
Fav Movie(s): Too many. I like horror movies.. and movies like Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Amelie, Pan's Labyrinth, Clockwork Orange, lots of musicals, etc. etc. etc.
Music I like: Oi. Let's just say it would probably take almost a month (of 24 hour listening) to listen to all the music on my computer.
Instruments I play: Piano, Flute, Guitar (badly), Trumpet, Violin (barely passable), and I fiddle with other things (which will soon include the ukulele from PWT  O0.)

Hey peepz

Being, I guess you could say, something of a late developer in my love for the Dolls, as such I'm as much a noob to the board as they come.

I'm from north east England and often use strange words common to my town, but charmingly unheard of in other parts of the world (such as the town on the otherside of the rain-lashed motorway). Some of these are 'elish' (very good) and 'dut' (small cotton hat). The point to telling you this is in case they're used at any point in my time at The Shadowbox.

I like to think I'm more interesting than any of that makes me sound. Doubt it, like. But I can but hope  :happy11:

hi, i'm mandy.  always just mandy, never amanda.  i'm 21 and i'm an artist.  i went to college for a while but it wasn't a good fit so i took some time off to figure things out.  no luck yet but i'll let you know when i do!

i love amanda's music.  it has helped me through a lot of really rough times in my life.  her music speaks to me the same way it speaks to a lot of you, i think.  she understands both light and dark and that shows in her art.  the first time i heard "first orgasm" and it got to the part that goes "i am too busy to have friends / a lover would just complicate my plans" it was like someone punched me in the stomach.  that's what my life had been for a long time.  i was fighting to get ahead and missing out on the really important things.  so that's why my username is "complicatemyplans," because i am now always looking for complications.  they are what make life worthwhile.

so, hi.  i am glad to be here.  i wish i would have found this board before the show in new york city, because then maybe i would have had someone to hang out with!  but it didn't matter, amanda's performance was amazing and it seemed like a big group of friends getting together rather than a big rock concert.  i even put a question in the "ask amanda" ukelele case that the fancy girl (jordanal?) was taking around, but it wasn't nearly as good as the ones she picked.

I actually saw Len once, it was this past New Years Eve show, I was stuck packed in the line and Len walked out of the entry doors and strolled along the line of people waiting to get in (before doors opened). I was like "THAT'S LEN!" because we were friends on Myspace and here and well you know, the avatar and all. I didn't say "Hi" because I was packed into the middle of the line, but had I been on the end I'm sure I'd hold out a high five and Len would have been like "yeah high five!" back because he's nice.

It's unfortunate because I asked like everyone around me if they were on the 'box, including the Jester statuing (Daniel, he posts here now!) and no one was :( but I did see Lauryn and she took some photos of me on line so that was cool.

Hm, what would people want to know?

Novemberchild, male, 37, from Cologne, Germany.
Unemployed and out about it.
Often secluded, yet also communicative...

My screenhandle is supposed to be ambigious. November is not only the month I was born, it also is an association by which I'd describe my personality - a diagnosis from my own book, so to speak.

I liked the Dresden Dolls the very instant I found out about them, through the "coin-operated boy" video on TV around the time they launched the album/single in Germany.

Then, after "Yes, Virginia", I lost track of them somehow until, just a few days ago, someone posted about "No, Virginia" in the only other forum I visit and that, and discovering Amanda's upcoming solo-debut, set off the severe back demand I'm satisfying right now.

So, Hi! I'm the new one, expect to see me more often... *waves hello*

I love The Dresden Dolls and I find them very inspiring and they've inspired me very much indeed to simply be who I am and dress like a nutcase and laugh and smile all the time.
I like to paint and draw and take photos. I also make alot of websites.
At the moment I am trying to teach myself to stand still.
I want to be a living statue.
My display picture is of myself. Wearing my 5 year old brothers leggings as a hat. Mainly because I wanted to take a stupid picture and I saw them on the ground and thought 'HAT'.

I don't think I introduced myself and I've just been here blabbing away! My name is Jordan, I'm far away from most of you guys... Atlanta, GA :'( But if DD ever came here again, I'd love to meet each and every one of you! And as much as I'd love to travel to see every single show I can, I'm tied down with work and home life! If there's any kind of useful advice about this site and how it works, please feel free to let me know. You can check out my MySpace page at--- www.myspace.com/coolkidshafla!

Well... then Welcome Mom, I mean Jordan.

Advices about this forum? Just... *thinking for 5 minutes* there are no advices i can think of.

LOL... thanks, I just figured out how do get my avatar up, without it, i thought there would be confusion! here's how it got it! one day my boyfriend said "Oh Dear God", and i being funny said "Yes my son", and he said "I love you Father", then i responded with "NO... Call me MOM"! so that's that ;D

Ah, another chance to test my grand theory of Atlanta...
Pt.1:  Might you agree with the description of Atlanta as a Big Northern City transplanted to the South?
(...which one sometimes hears as "Northern charm combined with Southern efficiency...")

Pt.2:  Among those persons you know who grew up & reside in Atlanta, what percentage would sell their
mother to get away to damn near anywhere else?

I would guess he meant...
Name: Mister Leave Me Alone
Picture: not "mister"-anything, and one would guess from the image, a fairly personable individual...

I try not to dwell on such discrepancies, since there's often a fair amount of subtext, irony, or back-story
to people's usernames...  and avatar-images?  eh, mine's a robot-assassin from a late-70's hippie-sci-fi movie...

So you live in London...  Do you still say "G'Day Mate" and eat vegemite?  Didja bring yer kangaroo and boomerang?   ;)

As far as charm goes... not too sure this place is so charming lol. It can be very ghetto :icon_rr: and some of the people here have attitude coming from nowhere for no reason! I've only resided here for like 2 years. I do say the friends I've made here and my Boyfriend are some of the most greatest people I've met. Since I'm young, however, I would still love to do some major traveling and live in as many cities as I can! I hear DC is wonderful as well as Chicago... New Orleans too. I'm originally from the midwest, Louisville KY, and honestly, people here are more cordial. I don't know, like I said... Whenever DD come back to ATL, I'd love to meet each and every one of you! ;D

Welcome Jetske and Ampdoll!

And Ms. 'Doll, you will find that there are people here who's lives are a network of internet forums,
but there are many others, myself among them, who don't really participate in any other boards.


I believe years ago I may have posted on a forum or two, I can't remember -bad memory (I have some neurological problems, so I really mean it when I say I have a bad memory!) - I think I stopped because everyone kept insulting everyone. I took the advice of the "read before posting" thread on here and "lurked" a bit (as creepy as that felt). For the most part, people seemed decent and respectful towards each other. Also, everyone seems to have quite the sense of humour and genuinely helpful information as well as other fine things to offer and discuss. I have no idea what I'm talking about. Wow. Anyway, I THINK/hope that made sense. My point is that I'm excited to be here and looking forward to the DD forum experience!  :)

Well...  In case you hadn't heard, the jobs are in math and science. 

Lit/creative-writing/social studies: public school systems won't let you teach anything that matters, or spend any time
on anything interesting.

Music/Art:  get in now, before they eliminate the subject areas entirely.

Are you any good with a foreign language?  There are occasionally openings...
(Oh, and if you slap the first person who says "pedagogy" or "inculcate" to you like it's a word they use every day, I'll
pay your bail if they call the cops.)

Hi Eddie!

Many here are into politics...  especially hurling all manner of abuse at people whose views don't quite fit with theirs.
Should you stumble into such a discussion, don't take the shit-slinging personally.  You'll notice that it's usually aimed
more at your candidates/positions/party than at you, and almost never spills out of the thread it started in.  Of course,
well thought out, issue-oriented, reasoned presentation of a rational argument on whatever point is also welcome.

Most of us also like Half-Jack.

Hello Fellow Shadowboxers!
The name is Solangel and I have been a member for a couple months and a lurker for even longer. I don't know what took me so long to "officially" introduce myself but better late then never right? Anyway,  I am 22 yrs old student/ticket monkey from NYC. I was first introduced to the Dresden Dolls via Girl A which I heard on a youtube video mashed up with scenes with Faith (Eliza Dushku's character) from Buffy the Vampire slayer. (There was also a mash up with Riley scenes and Coin-Operated Boy that was not as memorable). Sadly those videos no longer exist and at the time I didn't even know it was the same band. Anyway, I had completely forgotten about those songs until almost a year and a half ago when they were part of the True Colors Tour. I started listening to their stuff a bit before the actual show and I have been hooked ever since. Now you can catch me at every single NYC show (New Years was just wonderful!) so if you are there look for me and say hi. I even traveled all the way to Michigan to spend a lovely weekend with them in a tent at Rothbury Music Festival. Like most of you, my love for them has no bounds and I am happy to be here and be able to share that with you lovely like minded folk.

I'm a writer, an actress, and a photographer. I've been writing since I could spell, acting since I was ten, and taking pictures since I got my first barbie camera.
I'm easy to get along with, just a bit shy, so..I look forward to getting to know the lot of you. <3

Also, just a fun fact. My boyfriend's name happens to be Brian. xD

Hallo. My name is Erin. I'm 16 (almost 17) I don't know, does anyone read these anymore, after page 52? ^_^

I've been an avid Dresden Dolls fan for 2 years, I play piano (but mostly just Amanda Palmer songs) and am ATTEMPTING to write my own, but I haven't gotten that far. I went to an Amanda Palmer concert this August, and met Amanda. She's such a cool person, and her concerts are fucking MINDBLOWING. I'm a actor, practically live in theatre (honestly about half of my day is spent in one), love piano, painting, poetry, and my amazing friends.

I went to Germany this summer, and it's super awesome. Passed by so many signs for Dresden. Half of my heart is in Germany.

Absolutely!  The trick is getting people to read the beginning part of threads before adding commentary on page
20-something of an ongoing discussion of some specific topic.  Since each new person here is, in effect, a new
subject, it's easy to get up to speed in this thread.

hi there!

even though i've been on the box for a long time (i actually used to be on the old box too), i've never posted that much. i'm starting to post more now, so i guess i'll introduce myself :)

you can call me lucy. i'm a 17-year-old girl from the netherlands and i've been a dresden dolls fan since june 2006. i saw their perfomance at the pinkpop festival on tv and almost instantly became a fan. and i just realised that i actually really suck at writing something about myself. anyways, i'm a singer and i play the piano/keyboard. i also try to play the guitar but that's not really going that well ;) i also really like photography and just learning new stuff. and i guess that that's it ;)

I think it should sound...  almost like Meli (you know, as in "Meli Kelikimaka" = Merry Christmas in Hawaiian?)...  not quite, but close.

@ CeeGBee who or what is "Meli Kelikimaka" ???? never heard of it :o
It's Hawaiian (really, the language spoken by people in Hawaii before the English showed up),
and it means "Fröhliche Weihnachten"...   Of course, they didn't have Christmas in Hawaii until
the Europeans arrived, so it's really just a phonetic approximation of "Merry Christmas".

I don't know for sure, but I suspect there's a different word for general usage that means pretty much the
same thing.  I assume the Hawaiians have had happy/merry/joyful and so on since long before they met any
Europeans.

I'm Elizabeth. 22...from the midwest. I love the Dolls and Amanda's solo stuff like mad, but that's obvious...I'm here, right? XD

I uh....am a writer. I'm going to school to get one of those degree sorts of things. I am mostly interested in writing non-fic but I can write some mad fiction if the mood strikes. Annnd I shouldn't have written this intro in the middle of the night when I was tired and, for once, not entirely verbose.

Mmm...other bands I like are Radiohead, Tilly and the Wall, The Hush Sound, Billie Holiday, Duke Ellington, Rasputina....Audrey....anything with cellos....

I love words, which is part of why I adore Amanda as a song writer and musician. There aren't that many good lyricists anymore, truth be told.

eh, that's pretty much it. XD Hello everyone. <3

Hello! I am absolutely useless at these things.

Well, I am good friends with Mr. Leave Me Alone (who partly inspired my username) so she should be a help?

My name is Bekki. I want to be an artist. I love the Dresden Dolls and Amanda Palmer, as does everyone else on here. They are pretty awesomesauce. There was a point in my life where I was listening to Yes, Virginia twice a day. 

I'm not quite sure what else to say? Damn my lack of talent with those word things.

Hi there.. I'm Jo, only really just strayed out of the touring part of the forums ^_^ 17 and from Oxford, but just applying to uni to do English Lit so hopefully moving to Brighton or (we'll see how things go) Cambridge next year! I got introduced to the Dolls when some friends took me to one of the Roundhouse gigs and've been at London AFP events pretty much ever since.. usually in hats.

And I think that is about it.

My names Maddie, and I'm sixteen. As a counselor at a ranch camp during the summer I earned the nickname Duck.
I'm a junior in high school this year. I think science is my favorite class. I enjoy writing, I don't sing unless I'm driving, I actually do homework in study hall, and I love my cell phone way too much.

Mark was my "boyfriend", about three years ago. When we first met, he asked me if I was gonna beat him up. We lasted for seven days, and then he called to tell me that he was dead. He hung up; I didn't bother calling him back.

So. Maybe it's time to introduce myself.
I'm Oskarr. I live in France, in French Alpes exactly - next to Geneva, Switzerland.
What should I tell for more ? 28 years old. I work as a freelance graphist.
I'm involved in art too, writing on a rageous-fanatic-anarchist blog - also painting, drawning...
I read much too (Darien, Breton, Vian, Volodine... Yeah, that doesn't mean much to you, I suppose. I'd better talk 'bout Emma Goldmann, or Voltairine de Cleyre ?)
I also work for an alternative associative concert hall - so we make concerts (rock, punk, ska, jazz, ethnic music...), but also circus, theatre, and many other things I don't know how to translate.
As you can see, I don't speak english as well as I wish (did you notice ?...)

Well. So, Hi everyone.... 8)

hello everyone
i actually think this is my third time or so in the introduction post.
o posted in here and then i went back to lurking. but this time is for good i guess.
so let's start again.
i'm sylvia, a 19 year-old girl from italy. i study foreign languages in pavia, my town (it's 30 kms from milano).
i'm sort of antisocial...well, mainly because people here are usually very closeminded and bigoted...
i loooooooooooove art, most of the time i draw/paint/sew and make videos.
one of my videos has been shortlisted for the baltimore women's film festival, and i'm really happy about that.
next week i'll also start interviewing artists for rockline.it , with my best friend (well not acutally together, but we both got the ''job''). i'm really excited about that...
oh and i love travelling. thank god for low cost flights!

:)

Hi, im Jaz. Im 18, I used to live in Birmingham, UK, but i moved to Holland about a month ago to start a media internship in Amsterdam. Im kinda in the process of settling into a whole new life over here and I dont know anyone, so if any Dutch people want to help me out that would be nice.

Im also getting used to no longer being a student. I finished my A-levels in media, theatre and english this year. This is currently my gap year, and next Septemeber i hope to go on to study Drama and English in London.

I enjoy reading, watching films, going out (although theres been little of that so far in Holland) and talking endless politics.

So yeah, hi. :)

I should probably introduce myself...  Hiya :)  My name is Bobby... I'm a bit of a hermit from Northern California.  I've been a fan for years...   Been trolling these boards for a while.  I'm not a super big poster.  By the time I figure out what to say to say to somehting, I've often moved on to something else.  ADD?  I dunno... But I enjoy reading this board and after listening to http://www.imeem.com/penguinsinthedesert/music/zoWL40O4/hayley_and_jeri_interview_amanda_palmer_42008/ the other day... I feel like I should come out of the shadows a bit.  I'm an artist and a mom... I love garlic, road trips, tea, wind and eating lunch in the sun...  ...and I'm... a bandaholic.  I have fear of bees but I love honey.  Bunnies scare me a bit too... but I will tell you yours is cute if you show me photos of your pet.  So.. yeah, Hi Shadowbox!    :-*

I have a tendency to go back and forth between being extremely active and disappearing for days or a week at a time. I have a lot to say but it doesn't always make sense. I love music and love to talk about music. Actually I love to talk about a lot of different topics. I like people who don't take the internet very seriously. I don't like internet elitists at all. I can be an asshole but I know when I'm taking it too far.

So I guess that's all. I am new here but I've been a member on @forumz for a long time and so far, these forums have been a nice change of scenery.  O0

Hello everyone........must have registered ages ago but only started posting a while ago. Thank Mr. Obama. :)
I've been into this DD&AFP stuff for almost three years now. Saw DD in Prague...what was it...April 2006. Best gig of my life (OK...next to Leonard Cohen this Sept.).
In short: I'm a music maniac with a touch of a movie maniac. A shy introvert who admires anyone who goes out there and makes some fuckin art. :)
Oh yeah, 21, more or less female angel, Prague, CZ. Screen name borrowed from a Bowie song title (first track on Lodger ;D).

Hoping Amanda's gonna visit this ol' city I live in soon.

Hi guys....I'm kinda alien here.  I'm old...at least I feel old here.  I'm 40 but I feel 20.  I've been a music fanatic since I was in elementary school. I grew up at age 7 listening to Black Sabbath and Led Zep among many others.  Music has been my vice, my therapy, my friend for as long as I can remember.  At the old ass age of 38 I discovered the Dresden Dolls and needless to say, life has never been the same.  Thank God for that.
So....even though I am "old" to 99% of you, I am still capable of being "cool", loving good music, having fun, and even being able to give some sage advice to the "young ones" out there --if needed.  I'm a laid back, hard working chick that still loves to live life to the fullest and enjoys great music.  Amanda Palmer helps me to make it to my shit job each day.  I put in her CD and just deal with life, same as anyone else.  So I look forward to meeting any like-minded music lovers out there.

Hi. My name is AJ, and I found The Shadowbox from another student in the drama university building. I heard The Dresden Dolls for the first time 4 years ago, but not until this September did a borderline obsession begin. I love the music, and the style of The Dresden Dolls, and I adore Brian and Amanda. This being said, I'm more of a lurker than other things, but I'll be around.

Nice to meet everyone,

AJ

o hai. didn't see this thread until now.

name's marissa, from philadelphia. currently failing out of bryn mawr college (i'm reapplying next year). when i get my shit together and do this college thing, i will major in math.

longtime dresden dolls/afp fan and occasional lurker on the shadowbox, just joined. just saw afp in philly, saturday 22 nov @ the TLA - awesome.

let's see... i play guitar and bass guitar and sort of keyboard (aka i match up the guitar frets to piano keys and play everything i know on guitar very slowly on the keyboard).

i also like cookies, gnomes, cats, and books. (puppets are okay when they're not terrifying me.) and i like dogs too.

that is all i can think of right now. perhaps at a better, non-3 AM-time, i will think of something more interesting to say.

Hi, I'm Edie.

...well, not really, but there's about 23453672 possible puns on my real name and I just get really tired of it. So since I use Eveningsdawn as a screenname almost everywhere, I took the E and the D and put them together. That makes E.D., which said phonetically is ee-dee, which made into a real name is... Edie!

I've been listening to the Dresden Dolls since my very dear friend Dee introduced me to them about four years ago, and follow them more or less obsessively. Due to scheduling conflicts - like living in AUSTRALIA for six months - I've only been able to see the Dolls/AFP once, despite them being in my area more or less constantly... I live 45 minutes from Boston and 30 from Amanda's hometown, where, fun coincidence, my current girlfriend lives. But I did get to see them at the Onion Cellar cabaret show, which was done at the Zero Arrow Street Theater and it was a BLAST.

Joined because of the belly thread, like many others.

I am a twenty-one year old short, stocky, cheerful dyke, and am halfway through my junior year of college where I am an English major. I like ponies (been riding since I was nine!), parentheses, ellipses, books, writing, spotted hyenas, train trips, and singing as I walk down the street.

Heyy. I'm Peet.
I'm Aussie. I idolise Amanda and I support her in everything she does.
I first heard her when my best friend let me listen to Coin-Operated Boy when we were stuck in a tent with two large, annoying, slimy boys. So me and him sat there listening to his iPod. (Very close, may I add. ;D But he wasn't out back then so nothing kinky happened.)
And yeah. He was able to order a copy of Amanda's new album and it's SIGNED. I, however, am so slow about anything and everything that by the time I go to order it it's like, too late. xD

I'm a musician (I play fucking wicked piano) and I want to pursue that. =D

kthxbai!

Oh, and I'm almost 17. (:

Hey. Callum here, know as Galactic Simian / Space Monkey to most of the internet.
I'm Australian (and consequently have little change of ever seeing Amanda live), but yeah, one day, I'll get to Boston or NYC or something.
Anyhoo, I was a mild DD fan for a while, until my friend (Peet from a few posts back) got me into them again. I'm the proud owner of a signed W.K.A.P. album and 'I Killed Amanda Palmer' t-shirt, and um, yeah, I'm mildly musical (sax, flute and dodgy piano).
Also, I'm 16  ^-^

PS: Call me a noob, but what does 'Anti-Warhol-ism' mean Brittany?

Hi all! I have been lurking here for a while, but I figured it was time to introduce myself! I'm Orlagh (Or-la). I'm 18 and from Brighton, UK. I am having a year off studying at the moment and should be applying to uni any day now. I like to write alot and I have studied photography, I'm hoping to work my way into music photography/journalism. I also sing, and me and my friends are putting the final touches to our first very synthy, girrrlectro cover of The Cure this friday  :)

I am a bonafide newb (be nice :embarassed: ), in as far as I was introduced to the Dresden Dolls just last month by my friend Wasim (of the WKFC (http://viewmorepics.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=viewImage&friendID=38725576&albumID=2157715&imageID=45052744)). And though I'm generally an electo fan, I've become utterly obssessed with the Dolls and Amanda's solo project. I think the way Amanda writes lyrics is incredible, and the way her and Brian play music together, so aware and in tune with each other, is as if they share the same brain. It's just beautiful. I've spent the past two months immersed in Amanda/Dolls; reading, watching but mostly listening to anything related I could get my hands on, and am *hopefully* getting all the CD's and merch one could ever wish for for christmas/my birthday...

oh, here's the place to introduce yourself.

hi, i went to see Amanda at Amsterdam and i live in Holland.
totally loved it. the week after the concert i was like.. wtf just happened?!  :love5:

i love snow white (i've got a snow white tattoo on my belly), i study psychology, i like to think i rock,
i love to make people laugh while seriously trying to present a study-thing in college, i love hangin' out with friends,
getting stoned, party on xtc, party party just party, i like to frighten elderly people by screaming "SO WHAT, I'M STILL A ROCKSTAR"
i love that, i love to go to the movies and throw popcorn everwhere.

my all-time favourite live out song is "killing in the name of - rage against the machine"

that's it. for pictures (where i mostly look wasted, an AM wasted) check my hyves. (that's what dutch people do, a sort of myspace)

Genital tasering is not my thing, maby the occasional boob/manboob, but I consider them more of just a useful thing to have around.

Though there is this game called "taser tag"- it's like laser tag, but no one ever gets called out of the game, you just keep shocking them untill the batteries run out.

het was fucking geweldig, freakin' awesome. i sat on a couch before the concert because i was about to faint because i always get terribly sick before something huge (an Amanda Palmer concert for instance) is going to happen, i was on the verge of a nervous breakdown i mean. i thoutgh the army of broken toys was horrible and i barely could stand straight, so i went to sit on a couch in there. and then all of a sudden that woman with the accordion sat next to me and went on playing her part on the accordeon while looking at me and blinking her eyelashes. my friends (whom i was with) looked at me full of compassion. justly.

Here's another Dutch person.

Saw Amanda in Utrecht. It was brilliant!



Hi I am Pelle, 19 years old, from Holland, Leeuwarden. I'm a musician (piano, guitar, vocals and cello), artist, and hopefully a soon-to-be website designer. I'm currently attending the Academy for Popculture, which is a place where you learn how to be a musician and more (at the moment I'm working on a musical I've written and will perform in the near future).

I didn't know that the Dresden Dolls existed until the drummer of my band told me my style was kind of similar to the Dresden Dolls. He told me that more than six months ago, and I have been buying cd's, listening way too much, going to a concert of her, being the fan I thought I could never be.

@Lucy: Yes I play the cello (though I've just started; I've been playing for a month now), and it's great. And I kind of suck too at the guitar (okay I can play quite well, but I can't compose songs on the guitar).

And I know quite a lot of chords (I can figure out every single one). Maybe I'll need to try it again soon...(instead of thinking about quitting).

Anyway, I can also keep myself occupied by composing all the Dresden Dolls song on the guitar (though it has been done before).

Oh playing and singing the Dresden Dolls songs is a problem for me. I can't play the stuff she plays and sing at the same time (I can play and sing my own songs, but she has a couple of songs which have really odd rhythms which are hard). And my range is rather different (obviously as a guy, but I have a really deep voice, ranging from the C2 to around C4).

And yes I am not bad, but there are a so many people who are way better than me. And there's playing with the plectrum which I suck at and stuff...but I'll try harder then.

yes her songs are pretty hard to play sometimes, most of all when you try to sing along. wow that indeed is a really deep voice! my range is something from like D3 to D5. though when i have to sing notes like C5 of D5, well it's really hard for me. amanda hits those notes sometimes, so i have to transpose the songs like -2. though, amanda can sing lower than i can (she can easily hit a C3 for example) so like when i play guitar hero i have to transpose it -2 and sing the verses 1 octave higher. it's really annoying :P on the other hand, i've only had 1 singing lesson (my next one is this week) so in a few months i'll probably won't have that much problems anymore with hitting notes like C5 and D5. or at least that's what i'm hoping for haha.

well, there'll always be someone who's better than you. but don't let that stop you from learning!

 Well D is rather low too :).

@Lucy: I know her vocal range for a female is rather strange (and she has quite a range). But her dynamics and speed are also absurd sometimes.

Well it's not that there is one person who's better than me. There are only a few singer song writers who play worse than me at my music school, all the other people are better. But I'll stick to it for now (though if I keep getting better this fast with the cello, I might give up guitar so that I'll have more time for the cello).

yes, it is rather strange indeed. i like it, obviously, but it makes it hard to sing her songs. exactly, she can sing extremely fast.

I got into The Dresden Dolls a while back but kind of just moved onto different stuff, that was until Amanda came to my college.
I fell in love with her album and all the dolls stuff again!
Plus since then i've started playing piano again.  :)

@Sophie: What did Amanda do at your college?



She came to my college to give a talk about her life in the music industry and she performed some tracks for us. I won free tickets for the concert she did at the end of the night. Was really glad that she did though because it was after she had her foot ran over and my tutor was rather worried she'd have to cancel. But like a true sport she came through and it was one of THE best days ever.

Hello! Nice to meet you all! You can call me Juliet. :) I'm turning 22 on Friday, and I live in the beautiful city of Utrecht, the Netherlands, where I go to uni.

A friend of mine got me into the Dresden Dolls some time early 2004, by making me listen to Girl Anachronism, which I really really liked so I downloaded the album (yes, I know, shame on me). It's always been one of those albums I'd listen to every once in a while, and then forget about and then I'd listen to it again and rediscover its awesomeness. So yeah, saw the Dolls live at Lowlands this year, LOVED the show (so so glad I picked them over The Roots and Stephen Lynch, who were performing at the exact same time). Amanda told us her sister had just moved to Utrecht for 5 years and that she was going there after the show to see her apartment etc, which I thought was pretty cool. She also said she'd be back soon for her solo tour, so when I found out she was playing at Tivoli on October 27, I bought myself a ticket and went to the show. It was AWESOME, quite obviously. I now own the self-titled CD and No, Viriginia.. and once I figure out if the official WKAP webstore really needs me to fax over a form stating they can charge my credit card (wtf?) I shall be getting WKAP too (and Yes, Virginia, once December is over.. needz money first).

Anyway, yeah, I started reading Amanda's blog after the show, fell in love with her awesomeness even more and that's how I ended up here!

been here a couple days now, officially since yesterday, and I already have a favorite thread (the one for chords/tabs/sheet music). this is subject to change, however, as there seem to be many threads about a hell of a lot of crazy shit. we shall see.

Thats cool that you made it to that show though. I would be pumped to catch a show at the last minute like that.

Hi, I'm Phoenix :)
I've already posted on the belly thread, but thought I should post here as well.  Not quite sure what to write...
 I've loved the Dolls since I heard them 3+ years ago, their music has gotten me through some very rough patches and I will forever be a fan.  I got to see them when I was about 36 weeks pregnant with my first daughter (outdoors, so you all don't think I'm damaging my kids in utero LOL), I secretly think thats why she like the music now and dances like only a crazy 2 year old can! 
hmmm, what else....I'm 22, I have 2 kids (2.5 yrs and 5months), I'm a vegan, I can sew, I have 3 cats, I have a vegetable garden but I hate pulling weeds, I once lived in a house (anarchist co-op) with 5 bedrooms and 15 people living there (where I first heard DD!) and even now that I live in a typical(ish) suburban single family home with my husband and kids...it feels strange to me to NOT have roommates!

I spend way too much time on the internet but I'm usually nursing a baby so I don't have the free hands to type, so I'm usually lurking/reading, I promise to try to post, but really, I'm not being creepy with my lurking abilities, promise!

Hi. *waves* Name's not Rook, but who cares? Call me Rook.

I've been a fan for about three or four years. When I figured out the disparity between their self-titled album media façade and the actual meaning and message behind the Dolls, it really helped me to see the entire concept of being someone's fan in a different light. Their music and their attitudes were with me throughout a breakthrough in my development as a person, and although it'd be a bit much to attribute all that personal growth to Amanda and Brian, it's definitely not a lie to say that they're responsible for helping out with quite a fair bit of it. Love to them both. <3

Thats about it...

The first song I ever heard was "Coin-Operated Boy," and to be honest, I hated it. And still don't really like the song to this day.  ;D
But then I looked up more Dolls' songs and came to love them quite quickly -- especially since they have the three most favorite instruments of mine all wrapped into one.
I just found out Amanda was doing solo work a few months ago, and I've come to like it even more than the Dolls' work.

Anyway.

My name's Deanna. [My parents were Trekkies.]

I used to write a lot. But I haven't as much, since I've been put on Prozac.  :D Ironic.

I dabble with the guitar & piano. I'm not splendid at either, but I know how to write & read music and a bunch of useless music theory I've learned over the years.

I'm graduating high school this year & then I'm off to college downtowm to major in graphic design mgmt.

1984 and Fight Club are basically the best books ever written. <3 [and if I hear one more preteen raving about Belluhh n' Edwhaardd, I'm off to chase down Stephanie Meyer.]

I can be a real bitch when it comes to my opinions. I'm completely against religion, and think most women are complete bimbos & not helping their gender whatsoever.

so hi?  :)

Hey,

Im always a bit late with the 'introduce yourself' threads... but im still a newbie so i guess im not too late!?

My name is Heather, from Birmingham, UK
Im a musician and a lecturer.
I am smalle (but alas older than i look)
Im in a band called DRAG (shameless plug here: --> http://www.myspace.com/dressedasgirl (http://www.myspace.com/dressedasgirl)
I've liked the DD for a few years and find Amanda particularly inspiring with her piano playing and vocals.
AP is one of my influences for my vocal, songwriting and visual performance style.
I had the pleasure of working with AP in October 2008 when I co-ordinated her visit to speak and perform at my college :D

Looking forward to speaking to you all, a lot more now i discovered my work place doesn't filter this message board! woo!

I'm Clare, but I also go by Black Canary (or just Canary) taken from my favorite comic book character (Black Canary from DC Comics).

I've been silently stalking the shadowbox for a few years now but have been a bit afraid to join- I have no idea why. I'm a huge Dolls fan and Amanda Palmer is my hero. I like reading and writing comics. I work at a comic store in NYC (St. Marks Comics! Best place I've ever worked) and hopefully one day I'll write Batman.

Hmmmm...   "Black Canary"...   Name's vaguely familiar, and the avatar image would suggest
a DC heroine, probably one who hangs out with The Green Arrow...  (Hawkeye would totally
take him in a fight...)

...but I can't really place the character.


Welcome nonetheless.

Welcome nonetheless.

She recently married Green Arrow. But she was the first major female character since Wonder Woman and was the second woman (first being the above mentioned) to join the Justice League rooster.

And Ollie would take Hawkeye and they'd both mess up. See JLA/Avengers for proof. Dinah would end up kicking both their asses for being idiots.

I really wish I had found this place earlier, but forums are usually... not my thing.

My name is Aaron! [Nicknames include Az, Zaza and Princess - choose your own!]

I'm 18 and from Melbourne in Australia and have been a Dolls fan since the release of Yes, Virginia... 165cm/5'5" and 52kg/114lb with long windswept brown hair (soon to be black with an azure streak on one side).

A first year uni-student next year and a wannabe musician - I take singing and piano lessons as a hobby but I'm not what one would call a prodigy.  :buck2:

A rare guy who plays both music AND sport, well, it seems to be rare out my way as when I broke my hand playing cricket last month, all I got at the local theatre was "Thats what you get for playing sport >_>".

I wish I lived in the city, not in the forest.  >:(

It's a nice place to escape to after several days of frantic-paced life, but, sometimes I can feel isolated. There's no shops, no public transport to get into the city, no sporting events, very few local gigs... these are the things I enjoy most. I prefer it to staring at trees.

I like a lot of things, one of the thing I really like is The Dresden Dolls/AFP.  Which is probably why I'm here :D
Amanda makes me like myself. (In such a way that she inspires me)... Ah well no good way to put it anyway.

Other things I like include other music (lots of it), drawing, writing, video games of all sorts, and sleeping.  Eating too.

I also love my kitties, one is male, he's huge (24 pounds).  I'd post a pic but that would make me seem weird(er).  The other is a bulimic bitch.  I love her too.

Ooooh, complicated...  You should fit right in.

I live in the middle of a mother fucking desert.  And I love snow. I see a problem with this...
We've got a couple of desert people...  and a bunch of Canadians, all of whom are apparently
buried unter ten feet of snow right now.

I like a lot of things, one of the thing I really like is The Dresden Dolls/AFP.  Which is probably why I'm here :D
Amanda makes me like myself. (In such a way that she inspires me)... Ah well no good way to put it anyway.
You put it quite well.  She has that effect on a lot of us.

Other things I like include other music (lots of it), drawing, writing, video games of all sorts, and sleeping.  Eating too.
Oh, well keep all that to yourself...  No one around here likes video games or artists,
especially artists who post their stuff in "Shameless Self Promotion", or their Dolls/AFP
art in the "Art & Photos" section...  and food?  We don't eat, nor do we have recipes-
threads... O0

I also love my kitties, one is male, he's huge (24 pounds).  I'd post a pic but that would make me seem weird(er).  The other is a bulimic bitch.  I love her too.
That's a lotta cat.  Again, no one here likes animals.
If they did, they'd probably start a thread....  like this one (http://www.theshadowbox.net/forum/index.php?topic=4096.0).

Well that's a good start right there  :).  It is lovely to meet you all.

Edit: Did i mention that I get really nervous when posting on new boards? becuase I do.
It's nice to meet you as well, and don't worry, we all take our meds as prescribed.

I love to be outdoors and try every weird sport I can, although I've still got a lot left to try. I live near two major ski fields in NZ, so I'd love to successfully learn to ski well, or try snowboarding. I'd like to live in a lot of different cities and towns around the world (NZ is my third move), possibly because I get too bored being in one place for too long, and need to keep moving and constantly changing.

I work with a Canon 20D and love photography, and all of that other artistic crap I know everyone else is familiar with here. I love music (obviously), and was gifted with a set of bongo drums a little while ago. Played piano for 7 years, want to pick up a keyboard in NZ, I have a keyboard, piano and organ back home in Australia which I miss a little sometimes. I took drama lessons for 10 years and wish I had the time to get back into that.

Just to simplify it a bit more, here's the crap I love: Peaches, Ani DiFranco, Flight of the Conchords, Nine Inch Nails, Desperate Housewives, Buffy, the X-Files, Nip/Tuck..
I used to almost pride myself on being weird, but now I've settled a bit more. Have 5 tattoos which are awesome!

I write a lot of rubbish sometimes. Hi. :\

him, then I know to be on the lookout for a crazed Frenchman in a DD t-shirt...)

Hey everyone,
I'm new (obviously) so I thought I would introduce myself.

I'm Bonnie,
I'm 16, and I live in Wisconsin's capitol city, Madison (Yes, I'm a cheese-head lol)
I enjoy listening to music, playing my violin, and curling up to a book with my Earl Grey tea on cold, snowy, winter nights...Not the average teenager, but hey, I like that. =)

I look forward to talking/getting to know some other amazing Dresden Dolls/Amanda Palmer lovers. (It's difficult to find people in my city that have a passion for them that are actually nice...)

Hey, I'm Amy.
I'm 18 years old, Pisces, I play drums and I'm doing a degree in Film and Media studies.
I live in New Zealand and its absolutely wonderful.
I've considered joining Shadowbox before but never quite got to it, I would have thought I'd feel like I was living a double life cheating on the other forum I post at.

I'm obviously a Dresden Dolls fan and I also love films, animals, playgrounds, films, Square Enix, watching whole tv series' on DVD with my flatmates while wrapped in blankets, my hometown (sort of), my new town (very much) and imaginative stories.
Etc.

ruined the scene, one more can't hurt...   ;D

Now Kiwis...  we've got a few, but more are needed to spread our empire.  'Specially
since the Big AFP tour's headed that way...  (I admit, I'm not certain that there's an
actual date currently fixed in NZ, but that was part of the plan last time I checked,
and if she's in Australia anyway...  right?.)   O0

Hello,
My name's nalA.
Well, OK, it's not really.
One of my friend's exes was saying people's names backwards when she was drunk, mine worked and it stuck.
The next thing you knew I was being introduced to people as nalA and that was that.
Most people don't even realise I'm not really nalA and I kinda like it that way.

I'm 27 (going on 15) and live in a tiny sleepy place called Carshalton that's right on the border of London and Surrey in England.

If anybody was at the leeds utd shoot and remembers an ickle ugly short guy with vaguely purple hair on his own; looking rather scared, wearing eyeliner, a bright blue bowler and creepers to try and make him taller, well that was me.

I would like to be able to say that I could play guitar and sing but that would be a lie.
I do however like to make a noise pretending that I can.

I'm not a moaning minnie like the preorders thread makes me sound - honest!

I like hugs.

Funny thing is, I was *JUST* thinking about reading people's screen names backwards as I opened this thread (I admit it, I read "MeaCulpa" backwards as I clicked the "last post" button) - it's just something I do because I know people use backwards words as screen name ;) case and point, right?

1. I exaggerated.
2. Apparently (and I had no idea until I just looked) people at horror cons get into fist fights over this...
3. There is rumor of an actual remake-remake, and in that context, the similarities between E.D. and E.D.2
    are superficial.  (Worse, Sam R probably won't direct the "remake".)

Right, I'm going to try this again.

Yes, I've already introduced myself. But I lied. Alice Silence isn't real. Never has been. She is an alias that I've been using for almost a year. Why did I start using her? I honestly have no idea. Escapism, boredom...it's not important.

While it was acceptable to be Alice in other places on the internet, being Alice here has, as we've seen, caused quite a few problems. Today, I was reading over the letter Indja sent me, and then went on the SB and caused offence to sarah, and I thought to myself 'what the hell am I doing? Why don't I just be me this time?'

I've been pretending to be Alice for so long that I didn't even think about the choice involved when I registered here; I just became Alice again. But it isn't fair, to be this person that upsets everyone here, and it isn't fair to deceive everyone either. I have, quite disgustingly, abused your trust, and I am deeply sorry. This is not a forum of pretence, it is a forum of humanity.

So yes, I am that old, internet cliché: the guy who pretends to be a girl online. My name is Fergus Bovey-Hull, and I am a 20 year-old student of Drama and Scriptwriting at Northumbria University. I was born in Oxford, and grew up there. I used to work as an admin assistant for the City Assertive Outreach and Rehabilitation Team. A lot of me went into Alice, and a lot of Alice has filtered into Fergus, but I have never had even the beginning of her array of psychiatric disorders.

I should like to begin again here. I like the community (you're all Dolls fans, how could you go wrong), and have a lot of free time. I didn't mean to insult or upset anyone; Alice is a personal creation, just like a character in a play. Stupidly, I became that character and didn't let go of her when I should have.

I'll shut up at this point and let the lynching commence...

I totally fucked up my last year at school so I don't really know what I'm doing now, I wish I was more artsy and I don't consider myself unique at all. (Although I am left handed). Plus I spend a ridiculous amount of time on the net.

I wasn't going to respond to this, but I had to say this. You have no idea how many people you offended with the things you said, including me. And now saying that the whole thing is made up, it makes me sick. You don't go throwing around a fake life story, being a fake person. If you want to be someone else, fine. Don't do it this way. You said things that went way too far. You offended me, you offended my friends. I won't forgive that. Good that you're saying it now that the whole thing is a fake, but for me... it's too late. Next time, use your brains buddy. Think before you do these things to people that have feelings.

the forum is generally an interesting place full of creativity and individuality....it is only very occasionally we have shameful incidents like this happening....
to be fair Alyss was only around for about 10 days, they seem to have made a really determined effort to create a strong reaction, I am thankful it did not get to the stage it has on another forum I know he posts on where he has claimed to have personally witnessed a friends suicide and has garnered sympathy because of it.... so far that forum still believes him to be a sick girl in a mental home that has been through a very hard time..... they may discover the truth quite soon

I've been a huge fan of the Dolls and AFP for ages, but I'm still getting used to the idea that your favorite musicians are real people that you can really be in the same room with, so I haven't been to a Dolls concert yet.

I am really a twin, we don't know if we are identical or fraternal (yes I know the difference, but we were the first twins the doc delivered and he was pretty new and couldn't tell - or so that's what I'm told).

I host a college radio show that ends this semester because I am graduating and I like to play Amanda Palmer and the Dresden Dolls and take requests from people on the shadowbox. I've met Amanda and Brian twice, I've seen The Dresden Dolls play 2 and a half times (the half is an instore hours before the first concert of theirs I attended), and I've seen Amanda solo just once this past New Years Day, though Brian was there and played w/ Amanda during the first song!

Just judging from the pix you've posted, I'd guess fraternal.  It looks like you actually have fairly
distinct facial bone structure...  Are you the same height?  I'm guessing you have the same blood
type, but that doesn't prove anything (unless you don't, which would rule out identical...)

There are some pictures where we look more alike than others...

We have all features that both identical and fraternal twins can have.

Same gender, blood type, both right handed etc. Doctor thinks placenta was either one or two fused together, we were in the same 'sac' - none of this really says one way or the other.

But we're VERY similar - I mean of course we have our own personality traits but we have the same/similar interests. Also identical twins I think can differ up to 20% or something... based on nurture... yada yada yada.

I think I'd be crushed if we were told we were fraternal because I've always felt like we were identical. I've had people come up to me though and say "Oh youre identical, I can tell!" or "Oh you're definitely fraternal, I just know it!" - *shrugs whatever.

Same gender, blood type, both right handed etc. Doctor thinks placenta was either one or two fused together, we were in the same 'sac' - none of this really says one way or the other.

But we're VERY similar - I mean of course we have our own personality traits but we have the same/similar interests. Also identical twins I think can differ up to 20% or something... based on nurture... yada yada yada.

I think I'd be crushed if we were told we were fraternal because I've always felt like we were identical. I've had people come up to me though and say "Oh youre identical, I can tell!" or "Oh you're definitely fraternal, I just know it!" - *shrugs whatever.
Well, if you want to be identical, just go with that.  If you wanna know for an absolute fact,
save your pennies and have your blood sent out for DNA matching...  (Just don't freak out
when you find out that one of you was switched at the hospital and you're not really even
related....  :o  )

I am really a twin, we don't know if we are identical or fraternal (yes I know the difference, but we were the first twins the doc delivered and he was pretty new and couldn't tell - or so that's what I'm told).
Hi everyone! I hope you're as friendly here as you are in real life!
Just judging from the pix you've posted, I'd guess fraternal.  It looks like you actually have fairly
distinct facial bone structure...  Are you the same height?  I'm guessing you have the same blood
type, but that doesn't prove anything (unless you don't, which would rule out identical...)

the test is expensive, I've looked into it once before. We joke about going on the Maury show ;D haha since he seems to be giving away free DNA tests like they are going out of stlye.

It occurs to me that I never officially introduced myself here, or if I did it was like forever ago.

Anyway my name is Jason, I'm 25, born and raised in Brooklyn, NY.  When I was younger I wanted to be a writer but somewhere along the line that turned into wanting to make movies.  So now I'm a freelance script supervisor, which is extremely hard to explain.  I spend way too much time watching tv and it's fair to say its an addiction.

You know, I never actually did either... So hey, several months later, here goes! I'm Irina, but everyone calls me Rina. Or sometimes, more affectionately, Rini. I live in London and I'm a student. Like the rest of you, I'm crazy about The Dresden Dolls. And, for that matter, all things theatrical - cabaret, the circus, burlesque, the list goes on. I think I'm developing an addiction to piercings - I have 10. I fear that with all these holes, I will end up with very little wind resistance. Can't really think of anything else interesting to say about me... *Runs away*.

Yes. It's why people board up their homes when a hurricane is approaching. One broken window can increase the force the wind brings to bear on a structure enough to tear it to pieces. Granted, the home might fall apart anyway, but a busted window/door will pretty much guarantee it.

I am a pretty new fan, unfortunately (wish I could have discovered all this earlier) and was introduced to AP and the Dolls at the beginning of last summer.

I went, I saw, I sang, I was astounded, I became even more hooked and then I joined the box.

im currently 19 years old, turn 20 in june, and i live in a VERY small town in the middle of nowhere, indiana. i entered college last fall as a music major. i actually had a lot of personal problems while away at school and ended up dropping out about 3/4 of the way through the semester. ive moved back home with my grandparents and im now attending a community college about 20 minutes from my house, 5 minutes from my old high school. i hate being in a community college, but i hope to transfer to a 4 year college after i get my associates degree. im double majoring in criminal justice and counseling and want to someday work with criminals.
im really into piercings and tattoos and want MORE. i have each of my ears pierced three times in the lobes, an industrial, my eyeborw, my nose, and my lip pierced. i have five tattoos, one of which is an amanda fairy tattoo that really got trashed when i first came here to the SB. oh well. amanda said it was cool :)
im currently single, blah.
i love to read!! i also love music. obviously the dolls and afp are my absolute FAVORITE, but im also really into ben folds (saw him in concert october 2008!!), three days grace, kimya dawson, staind, seether, korn, AFI, coldplay, neutral milk hotel, tori amos, michael buble, system of a down, my chem romance... just lots and lots of music. i love to write short stories and poetry. i am ALWAYS writing! ive kept a journal for as long as i can remember. i love to draw and paint but im really not that good. i can play the saxophone, clarinet, the drums, and a bit of the piano. i just bought a ukulele though, and can't wait to learn to play it!!
i have the most amazing little sister that is 11 years old and she is my life! recently she's really gotten into the movie Chicago and different musicals and i just bought neil gaiman's graveyard book for her to read last week. we went and saw coraline last weekend, too, and it was great. we look nothing alike but we have so much in common. ive even gotten her into the dolls/afp. my sister is the number one best thing in my life and i love her to pieces!

Hello all,

My name is Ryan,and I this is my first time on a forum. I didn't own a computer until I was a junior in High School, and have always been a bit weary of the internet. Any attempt I've made in the past to be a part of something like this seemed to be cyber-catcalling in the name of whatever interest the forum was supposed to be about, but I have been (as always) very impressed by the awesomeness of dolls fans, and think this place is amazing.
Of course, I'm a huge DD/AFP fan, as well as a theater/lit geek. I've lived in Little Rhodie all my life, and I love the ocean. My folks live in New Hampshire in the summer and Florida in the winter, and my sister lives in Connecticut, so I get around. I worked with a theater company called The Theater Expansion for two years, but our artistic director has placed the company on hiatus to gain much dance knowledge out on the west coast, so I am excited about getting involved in something new. I have done many things occupationally, but currently find much joy as a residential aid for the developmentally disabled. I have a twenty year old cat named Tiger who I've had since the fourth grade, I absolutely LOVE the sound of vinyl and am so glad the medium has not died, and I've been a vegetarian for over two years. I eat seafood, but only at restaurants if there are no other choices or if someone wants to prepare it for me. Due to oh so many reasons I've always been a bit down on myself, and never though I could be a creative type person, but this whole community has really given my inner artist a jump start. I've always had a crippling shyness about me, but the punk cabaret is definitely freeing me up.

Kind of unrelated, but whatevs. You just reminded me of this thing Craig Finn said in the Guardian about these rules his friends and he made up when they first got into punk - like, you weren't allowed to wear a band's t-shirt until you'd seen them live, and to write their name on your file at school, you had to own at least one of their records - copied cassettes didn't count. If you broke the rules, you were a total poser. Cracked me up ^.^

Aye, I try not to consider myself a fan of a band, or at least a true fan, unless I have listened to, and bought, a majority of their music, and liked it. The Dresden Dolls pass this test, as do Ladytron, Wir sind Helden, Schandmaul, Nightwish (maybe not their earlier stuff), and a few others. I used to count the Counting Crows, but I really don't like their new album, so I've struck them off, as lovely as Adam Duritz is.

Especially since  we all know  the really  hardest-core fans (especially punk rock hardcore fans) are
the ones who only have, like, a third-generation cassette tape of a bootleg recording of the band's
third show ever where the lead singer had strep and could barely talk, and the guitarist was tripping
so hard he didn't know which song they were playing.

Kind of unrelated, but whatevs. You just reminded me of this thing Craig Finn said in the Guardian about these rules his friends and he made up when they first got into punk - like, you weren't allowed to wear a band's t-shirt until you'd seen them live, and to write their name on your file at school, you had to own at least one of their records - copied cassettes didn't count. If you broke the rules, you were a total poser. Cracked me up ^.^
Especially since  we all know  the really  hardest-core fans (especially punk rock hardcore fans) are
the ones who only have, like, a third-generation cassette tape of a bootleg recording of the band's
third show ever where the lead singer had strep and could barely talk, and the guitarist was tripping
so hard he didn't know which song they were playing.

Well, obv. Hey, Cee, you can write my name on your school file if you like - you got the first EVER Helen Rose recording "somewhere in [your] iTunes", after all ^.^

You can be a fan, Alyss. You just can't wear the t-shirt. Duh. Although, by rights, that means I can't wear my Clash shirts, but if any of you fuckers wanna tell me not to... grr....

Can I be in your gang, Indja? Even though my collection of band T-shirts once included Avril Lavigne?

Congrats on getting into such a prestigous university! And I know what you mean about discovering things earlier...I regularly listened to Coin-operated Boy myself back in 2006, but never thought to listen to more until the very end of 2007. And I'm glad you enjoyed the Camden concert! I was there too (maybe you recognise my hat, heehee).

Thanks! And yes, I recognise your hat and your face...I think you were standing behind me during the gig...or beside me, anyway. I was the redhead all in black...

Daaaaaamn! I ask because I'm from Oxford myself. But I didn't have nearly good enough grades to get in. It's also mostly made up of private school people, who tend to vote Tory and set my teeth on edge. I know that's a generalisation, but it's an accurate one.

Though, as a Dolls fans, you probably don't fall into that.

errrrrrrrrrrrmmmmmmmmmmm i want to say something really nasty in reply but i can't quite think what to say.
it's not exactly like that.
well at least jon and i are testimony to that.
and, well, as much as i do bitch about how a lot of people are quite conservative here, it really isn't that bad at all... out of all of my friends only one of them actually votes Tory and most of them haven't been to private schools. although come to think of it i went to a private school myself and i don't think it has to make you a bad person. nor does voting Tori Tory! in fact, the main issue i have with people from private schools and/or who vote Tory is that they can be close-minded, but you are obviously neither but are just as close-minded yourself to make such 'accurate' generalizations like that.
i almost think an 'accurate generalization' is an oxymoron anyway. but i won't try and out-philosophize you.

Making generalisations doesn't make you closed-minded, and I'm not. Of the 7 people I live with 4 went to private schools but only 2 are Tories. There are plenty of exceptions to the rules, but that doesn't change the fact that the majority of Oxford students went to private schools or that the majority of people who went to private schools vote Tory. It's just statistics. I'm not drawing any conclusions about you, I just wouldn't go to Oxford myself, even if I had the grades for it. That kind of atmosphere isn't one I want to study or live in. If it works for you then cool: just don't start voting Tory.

hmmmm.... i suppose i just feel like i should defend oxford, seeing that i go here, and there are loads of decent people here. but i must admit, that having heard basically nothing about it before i applied, i had just assumed it would be full of quirky intellectual types, not aspiring investment bankers. i had also assumed that uni students in general would all be activisty types; maybe that's just the impression i got from my parents who were students in the 70s.
who knows, i probably wouldn't have applied to oxford if i'd known the statistics.
but now that i am actually here i would encourage people to apply if they are keen to study at a good uni. perpetuating rumours (even if they are true) just deters the sort of people that would actually improve the place... it's kind of a self-fulfilling prophecy.
i definitely don't plan to start voting Tory! :)

Students aren't any more motivated up here. The whole of the MEDC world is in need of a little activism. And defending Oxford's even harder if you actually come from there; everyone assumes you're some Summer Town Rah. I have to explain to them that the part I grew up in (East Oxford) is more like Camden than Eaton.

i've always gotten the impression that oxford as a town is fairly left-wing. there seem to be loads of green councillors and stuff. i don't really think of summertown being rah-y but i guess most students don't venture beyond the centre for long enough to have an opinion of anything outside st giles, the railway station, the police station, or the zodiac...
or perhaps that's just because i'd never even heard of the word rah (or chav) before i came here, and found the whole concept quite alien...

East Oxford is pretty left-wing. We've voted in a Labour guy for ages and ages, but the Lib Dems are creeping up behind him rapidly, with the Green Party following. Tories are nowhere to be seen. I don't know about the voting habits of the rest of Oxford though.

You should check out the pubs along the Cowley Road, less rammed than town and usually cheaper too. Do you venture into clubs much? And if so, which ones?

Hi! I finally found the "introduce yourself" thread  :D

I'm a cute 16 year old from the very far land known as Argentina.
And my name's Melisa ^^

I started listening to the dolls about 2 years ago I think. I got into them thanks to a nice english girl in a Placebo forum who kept saying how awesome they were, and she was damn right!
They've become one of my favourite bands along with Placebo, The Smiths/Morrissey, Tegan & Sara and Nine Inch Nails.
Here they're not very famous... I think I now about... 4 or 5 persons who like'em



andddddddd that's all I've got to say until now :)
