This is the spot for AMN members to get to know each other. Feel free to submit any information you wish, ranging from name, alias, homepage, photo, e-mail address, where you live, age, interests, sex, or anything else. As much or as little as you want to give is fine by me. Feel free to submit info even if you're a "newbie" or a "lurker" (see FAQ for explanations of these terms). It'll help others to get to know you. This isn't reserved for the "bigshots" exclusively. Everyone who submits something will appear on this page.
In case you're wondering, the list is alphabetical by first character of the name, or alias, if that's all that's given (so as not to show a bias.) Click on the person's name for a picture (where applicable.) For ICQ numbers of these people (again, where applicable), try the ICQ page.
Another note: I try to correct spelling/punctuation errors (sorry, I'm a prefectionist), but if for some reason you feel I changed a part of your profile, and shouldn't have (maybe what I viewed as a "mistake" or "error" in fact wasn't), e-mail me and let me know. I'll change it for you.
So? What are you waiting for? Send me some info!

Fav. bands besides Nirvana: Jawbreaker, Mudhoney, Shonen Knife, Mark Lanegan, Minor Threat, Melvins, Man or Astro-man?
Lead singer of a band I most resemble: Blake Schwarzenbach
Random shit: Berkeley is an awesome city. Last IQ test I took, I scored 130, which supposedly makes me gifted, so fuck you. I saw Mudhoney and Cosmic Psychos on the night of 4/17/98. I guess I live the straight-edge lifestyle (in the words of Ian MacKaye, "(I) DON'T SMOKE, DON'T DRINK, DON'T FUCK" although I think labeling yourself and following it like a religion is pure closed-minded elitist bullshit. I play the violin in a youth symphony that just got back from touring Spain (6-7/98) and recording some stuff for a cd. So, in other words, we're good. The X-Files and Ally McBeal are the two best shows on television. Seinfeld was good, too. I maintain the Cherry-flavored Antacids page, along with the Nirvana First and Last Live Performances Guide.

Claim To Fame: Used to be the president of The Thomas Morgan Appreciation Society (Which I also founded), but for some inane reason, I got sued by the american government, and I had to delete the page. It was a conspiracy, of course. (It will return, trust me!) I recently scored 9 out of 9 on an IQ test, so I guess I'm the smartest one around.
Music I Like: Nirvana, Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr, Neil Young, Helium, Pavement, Hole, Foo Fighters, Loosegoats, Red House Painters, Paus (at least what I've heard so far...it's Peter Svensson's (of the Cardigans) solo-project.), REM, Beck, Lemonheads, blah, blah, blah.
Hobbies: Abusing an acoustic guitar, will soon play either guitar, bass, drums or kazoo in a band, collecting Nirvana shows (http://www.algonet.se/~bara1/nirvlist.htm), study (it becomes a hobby, wether you like it or not), reading alt.music.nirvana, posting to the same newsgroup, worshipping Justin Slade for creating this ego-boost, listening to music (that's probably my biggest hobby, and supposedly the reason for my constant need of money).
Other Stuff: Beavis & Butthead makes me laugh, as well as Ally McBeal (well, lots of other stuff as well, but these comes to mind directly), Beck writes "interesting" lyrics, I need a haircut. There is a chance that you can find me in #kurdt_cobain (on Undernet), or perhaps in #amn (on Dalnet).

First Got Into Nirvana: January, 1992.
Favourite Nirvana Album: In Utero
Favourite All-Time Album: Exile on Mainstreet
Other: I play bass and sing lead in a "Rawk" band called Bluedog.
My Nirvana Testimonial: I first got into Nirvana when a friend of mine played me Bleach in early 1992. I had heard the "hits" from Nevermind, but honestly I was not impressed with what I heard. I do like the album now, but it took a while. I bought In Utero the week it came out and I still feel it is the greatest album of this decade. From the production to the song writing, it is in my opinion the album people will remember. After seeing the band live in December 1993 (Omaha) I listened to nearly nothing else until April of 1994 when Kurt's death caused everyone in my trendy town to go ape shit over them. They are still one of my favourite bands; the best we've had in the last ten years, and likely the best we will have well into the next decade.

What Else?: I've been reading and posting to amn since mid '96. I work pretty much fulltime delivering pizzas for Domino's where I get paid 8 bucks/hr (depending on tips) plus 18 cents/mile all for cruising around on my arse listening to cd's on my car stereo. Yeah, I like my job. I first heard Nirvana when I 'borrowed' my friends nevermind tape in '92 and thought they were OK. I still have that tape, hehe.
I Listen To: Nirvana, Ramones, Butthole Surfers, Devo, Misfits, Jesus Lizard, Pavement, Big Black, Sonic Youth, Pixies.
Anything Else?: I won the Spelling Bee for Brazos County (pop. 100,000) in 1990.....I now attend a junior college.
How Could AMN Be A Better Read?: If I had a filter on my newsreader that would sift through all posts containing the words 'kewl' and 'rawk'.
Anything Else?: That is all.

A.M.N Subscriber Since: In 08/97, I first started reading A.M.N., and stopped in 09/97. Started again in 11/97, and then stopped around 11/98 for a final time.
Interests/Notes/Misc: I trade bootlegs, and am proudly Canadian. I am interested in bands such as Nirvana, Mudhoney, Sloan, Sonic Youth, Foo Fighters, Sweet 75, Hole, Collective Soul, the Beatles, Sleater-Kinney, Smashing Pumpkins (older "rock" stuff... ya know, the stuff everyone says they like), the Doors, Queen, L7, Bob Dylan, Pixies, Green Day, R.E.M., Beck, Screaming Trees, Pearl Jam (kinda...), the Methodists, Weezer, Velvet Underground, Potatobug, Everything After Z, Marble, FooLtank, etc. (I think that's enough). Rubik's Cube is the greatest puzzle of all time, hands down. I play tuba in a concert band and bass trombone in a jazz band.
Claims To Fame: I have memorised the first 51 digits of Pi, and I once told a woman I coined the phrase "pardon my french" (please excuse the blatant Seinfeld reference). I created a certain fake title for the song "You've Got No Right" that starts with an "Over" and ends with a "Yonder Cliffe".

Favorite Kurt Quote:
General Info: I do not trade, I only buy. If I ever get a CD-R maker, whatever you call them, then I will trade those things. I doubt I will ever purchase one of those though. I am a collector of Nirvana disks. I am interested in what you have to say, I just don't have the time right now. Thank you, drive through.

Claim To Fame: Annoying millions of people on a daily basis. I'm also the master mind behind '101 Useless Facts About NIRVANA', the almost-done 'NIRVANA for Dummies FAQ,' the Save Frances Bean campaign, and the planned NIRVANA site 'Moment Of Silence' this April.
Band I listen to a lot, discounting NIRVANA: REM, Sonic Youth, the Pixies, the Breeders, PJ Harvey, Belly, Radiohead, Hole, Pearl Jam. I find the Vaselines pleasantly disturbing.
Look for me: I'm taking a break, but I still post to alt.music.nirvana sporadically, so you'd better watch what you say about me. I post to the HSMB on a more regular basis, and am a proud regular of AOL's Rolling Stone NIRVANA Message Board. I like to post classified ads at www.unamerican.com a lot too. E-mail me and say something smart. I love new friends almost as much as I love new enemies.
Be warned: I'm conceited and love to talk about myself. Plus, I'm a grammatical hypocrite.
