Elise,
Welcome aboard. ELJ is right. I have only been here a few days and he, Salamiguy and Alison were quick to greet me and make me one of their puppets.

All kidding aside, they seem like neat folks so you are in good hands.

As far as my intro that I am not going to do on how I first heard Dino Jr, I was still in the Marines stationed in Okinawa, Japan when I was "dosed". There was only one radio station called the Far East Network. I was in an office near where we were doing the paint, sandblast, undercoating and such on all of the vehicles that just came back from Desert Storm when this wonderfully dissonant song came blaring through at about 11am or 12pm, Puke and Cry. Funny, I don’t remember many people telling me Dinosaur Jr. ever had much radio airplay outside the college scene here stateside, yet the only stinking station for thousands of miles around saw fit to help add much joy to a miserable SOB who was not very grateful until late. They also played some stuff like Mary’s Danish (you gotta give props) Dada, and others I succesfully can’t think of at the moment. Anyway that is my minisermon. The soapbox is now available.
