Introductions Thread

#1 Post by coz » Sat Jan 06, 2007 3:02 pm

Whoever you are, if you want to...
say hi and tell us all about yourself in this thread!


EDIT: I guess I should include mine here, too.........

My name is Coz. 27 years old today (Jan 8th) Livin' in the burbs of Philadelphia, PA

I found Tally Hall February 1st 2005.
I started spreading them all around the net within 2 hours of hearing them on Myspace after I got a random friend request... even though I wasn't involved in too many communities, I tried. The band was still young and hadn't ventured much further than Ann Arbor at that point. They picked up on my efforts, as did their closest friends. I began to get some emails from them thanking me for pushing them here on the east coast. In April 2005 I saw them at The Pingry Spring Fling and met them for the first time. That was concert #1 of 11 (I think?). I've since created the Tally Hall Livejournal, Tally Hall Yahoo! Group, and of course the awesome HIDDENINTHESAND.COM.

I believe the world of popular music needs them. I just don't know if the world of popular music is ready.

jill? you could be thinking: what kind of a name is that? or hey, that's the second jill i know. or sheesh man, my name is jason/josh/jennie/joanne/etc and our names both start with a j. either way, you should know a few things about jill.

she is hardworking, laidback, friendly, vegetarian, and accepting. she is irish/native american/scottish/english/french canadian.

here is a list of jill's favorites:

CEREAL: fruit harvest
BAND MEMBER: horowitz
ZIPPER FLY COMPANY: ykk
KANYE WEST: kanye west
APPENDAGE: left big toe
NES GAME: ultimate street fighter
STAGE OF MITOSIS: anaphase
RUDIMENTARY SHAPE: triangle

now, we move on a list of analogies:

paisley : polka dots
as
movie theatre style popcorn : old fashioned style popcorn

and finally,

it is done.

wait.

ok.

now, it's done.

i am me, and that's enough for me.

i first saw tally hall when i was getting a beer to pass the time before okgo went on stage at mr. small's in pittsburgh on may 12, 2006. it has been a roller coaster ride since then.

they caused me to miss my senior dinner, which included free drinks.

they caused my old car, foster, jr. to become junkyard fodder 5 hours from home.

they made me watch as some very creepy guys (aka tubalcaine) roared, screamed, dumped beer and potato chips on their heads, and made out on stage.

they also made me listen to some pretty weird japanese pop music (and i will never get any of those minutes of my life back).

they caused me to miss a review for my probability final, as well as a potential steelers game.

but they're pretty funny, intelligent, and good at what they do... so i forgive them.

I'm am Savannah. But you can call me Savay, Savvs, Savvos, Savvies, Savavies, Fanny Pack, Cinnamon, Vanna, or any other weird thing you can think of. Yes, I answer to all of these and some others, too.

Jason, AKA Ibram, introduced me to Tally Hall. That silly boy nagged me for months on end to listen to this band. But we differ on almost all of the rest of our music tastes, so i just ignored him for ages. Finally, toward the end of 2005, he refused to be ignored any longer. He sent me Pingry EP and a bit of Complete Demos, and I was completely hooked from there on out. I have seen Tally Hall three times in concert. Once in Ibram's basement, better known as Wall Party '06. The next time was July 9th, 2006, when I went and saw Tally Hall opening for Puffy Ami Yumi at the 9:30 Club in DC. Two days later, I went and saw them again at a bar called Fletcher's in Baltimore, MD. The last two times were accompanied by my friend Tree, and those were AWESOME days.

I also twirl for my school's flag team and aspire to be a novelist. I play video games and obsess about Harry Potter. I go into withdrawl when I don't have any books to read.

I am Josh. Perhaps the same Josh as mention in Jill's fantastic introduction. Fantastic enough to make Zubin proud and/or green with envy and piss off Andrew for using his color in vain.

I live in what I consider the heart of New Jersey: Sayreville. Others probably disagree with the previous statement and I agree with their disagreement because chances are I'm wrong.

I found out about Tally Hall after watching Banana Man, being scared, and then watching Greener and loving the song playing in the background. Circa August 2005.

I have met and seen the guys of Tally Hall on October 24, 2006 at 6:09PM in Maxwell's of Hoboken, New Jersey. The situation was borderline awkward at the beginning, slowly etching its way into comfort. It was my first concert. Ever.
Prior to meeting them in person, I have spoken with Andrew and Ross over Jennie's phone on August 11th. Several phone conversations over Jennie's phone followed with them thereafter (one involving Joe as "Gay Zubin with leather chaps")
I've also been noted by the guys as "the guy who was talking about Brave New World with Ross" which is a reference to an email conversation I've had with Ross regarding the book. This title was given to me the night of my first concert.

I am currently spending my time with school, slumber, my kitchen, and a Tally Hall cover band known as T.H. Phone Home.

why hello there!

my name is joanne

i'm smart, quirky, and just like the rest of you, i love tally hall

basically there's not too much i can tell you about myself that you can't find out about me on these here forums

i feel a little silly (ugh. i hate the word silly, but it's organic in this context) introducing myself because most of you know me, and a few of you know me a little more than you should...but whatever

my interests include (but are not limited to): speaking spanish, drinking tea, answering questions, writing jokes, anecdotes, and scripts, going to concerts (especially those of the tally persuasion, thumb rings, laughing, cliches, eating, ya know- the uuussse

random facts about joanne!
-she has no tonsils
-she has a list of favorite words
-she has been to 6 tally hall concerts
-she is originally from new jersey (the very same county as andrew horowitz!)
-her dad spells her name wrong
-she is allergic to all things citrus
-she is a comfortable 5 feet, 8 inches tall (which is good for playing her favorite sport, basketball!)
-she works in a coffee shop
-she's coming to a town near you!!

sorry if i went overboard, it's a boring sunday night

puppies and kittens,

joanne! :smt117 :smt117 :smt117 :smt117 :smt117 :smt117 :smt117 :smt117

that's basically the funniest thing ever...besides "joshyg"

Hello everyone, I'm Bearwhale from the original tally hall forums. My name is Jacob, and I live about 5-10 minutes away from the Palace. I saw Tally Hall at the Blind Pig in Ann Arbor.

Interesting Fact about Firebird: I was born in St. Joseph Mercy Hospital in Ann Arbor. We moved to Oregon from there when I was 1.
