What's up from Detroit!
« on: Oct 25, 2012, 06:00 AM »
Hi everyone! I'm super pumped about being on this board and meeting other 'Tones fans! Here's a bit about me!

Name: Andy

Age: 24 (as of next Saturday)

Gender: Lady being

Location: Detroit, MI, USA

Fandom: I actually started listening to them because of "Little Nicky" (an Adam Sandler film) when it first came out in theatres. After that, I was hooked. They move and inspire me artistically as well.

Hobbies: Nerdy shiiiihhh... Drawing, sewing, reading comic books and manga, playing video games, and adventuring.

Other music interests!: System of a Down (and side projects), Bjork, Elzhi, Massive Attack, Korn, Slipknot, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Tool, A Perfect Circle, NIN, Misfits, Pixies, Pogo, of course Deftones side projects, Telepopmusik, the Birthday Massacre, and other stuff

Favorite Deftones Album: ... can't really say I have one in particular. My fave 3 are "Adrenaline," "White Pony," and "Around the Fur."

I'm up for making new friends everywhere! Don't be afraid to give me a holler. :)

Hi Andy! A good friend of mine is actually from Detroit, so it's cool to meet someone else who lives there. :) I've only recently joined the board myself, but welcome! By the way, I'm also a fan of Tool, A Perfect Circle, the Pixies, GY!BE and earlier NIN and Korn releases. :D Deftones fans always have the most interesting tastes in music.

Hi Seasick! It's nice to meet you too! None of my friends here in Detroit are friends of Deftones. But, it's really interesting to see another Deftones fan who like GY!BE. That's so rare!

You can call me Devin, by the way. :) And I'd have to agree! It's definitely not a common occurrence. By the way, have you listened to their new release and, if you have, what did you think of it? I thought it was pretty solid- kind of quirky, if that makes sense- but so far nothing they've done has topped Lift Your Skinny Fists... for me. :)

I've been meaning to attempt to find more local fans. It would be badass if we could organized a gathering at their next show in the mitten. :D
