First Post

All right, as most of you know, I've dragged this thing on for entirely too long. But I like to finish what I've started, and despite the fact that we lack a less-craptastic layout despite several entreaties for a good one, I'm launching it.

At the time of its birth, it seemed most reasonable to start up a livejournal community, since there were only Xanga blogrings and Friendster randomness. And I, being me, possessed neither. Now that a public forum for the band has been created, this place has become something of a moot point. But what can you do. Maybe it'll become the most successfully bitchin' comm around. Who knows? ;p

To kick things off, because I'm incredibly inept at making anything shiny and computer graphics-ey (yeah, yeah and I'm your admin ;p) and it's near four in the morning, I'm giving up something more than half of you have already seen. I'm just hoping that half of those have forgotten they've seen this, and the other half will be awed.

Interviewed! Humble BeginningsCollapse )

And that took way more effort than one might think. It had better be appreciated. And you people had better post. Introduce yourself as you have never introduced yourself before!
