New & old FANS! Post YOUR Introductions Here!
Apr 11th, 2004 at 5:03am
 
Welcome to our new (and old) Romantics fans!!!

Since we appear to have lost all of our old messages, I want to encourage people to post (or re-post) a brief "introduction" here in this thread so that we can all get to know each other better!

(For those who have already posted, please feel free to do so again!!)


Also,
please try to limit posts on this particular thread to introductions only
--that way it can be "short and sweet"!

Looking forward to seeing everyone's intros!

Smiley

OK,
I will start off the introductions!

I've been a fan of the Romantics since I was in high school--I was introduced to their music by a high school "punk" band... Smiley

The first time I heard "What I Like About You", I was hooked!  I have requested "What I like about You" at almost 40 weddings...(and that's only in the last 11 years!)  Smiley

I have almost all of their albums, and am still searching for copy of "Made in Detroit"....  The majority of my albums, and dance tracks are
VINYL

and I've picked up a couple of the compilation albums on CD....

The first time I saw The Romantics was around the late 80s/early 90s when they played outdoors on a cool evening on the Detroit River at the River Rock Cafe. There was only ahandful (about 30 people) standing outside in front of the stage--everyone else was inside the bar getting drunk... LOL)

Got lots of (more recent) memorabilia and I can't wait to see them again soon... I've seen the 5 times so far and 3 of the times were within the last 6 months!  Smiley

Oh yes, if you haven't guessed it already, I'm from the Detroit Area--the Motor City Rocks!!! Smiley

That's all for now!

--Iris

********************************
Fan intro questionnaire:

Name? Iris
Where are you from? The Motor City (Metro Detroit, MI)
How long have you been a Romantics fan? 23 years (since I was 14!)
When is the last time you saw them live? in February.
Favorite song? What I like about you
Favorite cd? They are all my favorites! Smiley
Favorite band member? Wally, Coz, Mike and (now) Brad.... I like them all! It wouldn't be fair to choose...
How many times have you seen them live? 5
Most memorable show--It's a toss-up between the most recent Cleveland show at the Beachland Ballroom and the one at the Phoenix Center in Pontiac, MI in 1999.
I think the Cleveland one wins out because I did a "marathon" road-trip (only was in Cleveland for 12 hours total and had to turn around and drive home!)

Most cherished memorabilia? The picture and program that Wally, Mike, Coz and Clem signed at the Pontiac Center in 1999.  I waited around about an hour (and was the last fan waiting) before the bouncer got me into their party tent to have my program signed!

Have you ever met the band?  Yes! Smiley
Do you belong to the Yahoo group? Of course, I was the one who started it several years ago! :-D
Yahoo or AOL or other IM screen name? pinkbubelz
Your birthday-- March 19th
Anything else you want to tell us-- Hot pink is my favorite color and If you see ma at a show, I will probably be wearing a fuschia leather jacket... Smiley

Mac users might not have a right click button, but can still do the cut and paste. Wink

AND.... I've edited my original post to follow the blanks. Smiley

Remember, please post only your intros in this thread.
 If you would like to make a comment, we encourage you to create another thread for it... Smiley  That way, it will be easier to find everyone's introductions!

I also added a question about IM screen names to the list as well. Wink

When I referred to my friend John, I was speaking of John Wicks of The Records. I only use his reference because he has mentioned more than once about a local Romantics fan he runs into, whom he thinks I know...probably it isn't you...but, since I don't know your first name...

Gee Cheryl, I think that Long Beach show where Lori (nee...Depp) thought you got whacked in the head by a guitar, should get a mention, or Colorado Springs when you wore my sailor shirt as a dress Smiley

BTW,
Did Jeff tell you we got together when he was here in April...it was a nice healing chat and it was nice to see him as a 'grown-up'   Grin  Hindsight truely is amazing  Roll Eyes

Hi Linda (aka Tiz)Smiley

How in the world did I forget about the infamous Long Beach show....that was memorable.  We had been to lord knows how many shows by then and I was just plain exhausted and on alcohol fumes:)  I did forget all about that one.

No, Jeff didn't mention that you guys saw each other....he mentioned that he was thinking about going to the Viper Room show and that you were going.  But then again, we talk in basic terms only....kids and money:)  (kidding)  Yeah, he has grown up (some) and his saving grace with me is that he does truly love his kids ~ he goes completely out of his way for them.  And knowing that, makes it much easier now for me to send them to his house every other weekend, without being worried ALL the time.  He is a good dad...wasn't a good husband....but he is a good dad. Undecided

Yeah he and Dodie were going to the Viper show because it was also my Bday party celebration...but things changed for them and I met up with him another day. He talked alot about the kids and how wonderful they are...I heard the pride and devotion to them as he spoke (which Dodie had told me about) and I'm glad to see and hear of him as a good father...I understand your husband comment because of the history and you have to know how oddly weird it was for me to sit and have a "normal" conversation with him Undecided  I just kept thinking how oddly surreal it was to be sitting there all these yrs later, making small talk, but, in my mind for no reason...   He did ask one question that caught me off guard about you...and it took me a few minutes to answer...this is one that should be emailed privately...and if you want to know email me privately...

Cheryl...no matter what...all of us 'girls' have an "odd friendship/love" bond   We are stuck with each other through that bond  Tongue

How many times have you seen them live? at least a couple dozen times.
Most memorable show-- all of them, even the joel and arnie day's. have a flyer from 1982 show in ypsi, roadied for several more shows after. can't burn the candle from both ends. nothiing worse than a hangover and riding in the band equipment truck.
Most cherished memorabilia-- wally's harmonica and autographed case, a pair of black leather pants, made by irene. which wally nor i will ever fit into again.

Hey everyone! I'm glad to be here! The 1st time I saw the boys was in '83. They opened up for The Tubes, in K'zoo, MI at Wings Stadium. I now live in Indiana, and was wondering if anyone knows if they ever tour in "Hoosier" country? I've never seen anything on it. If any one can tell me, that would be great!

Indiana...I saw the band there in Elkhart ( Conversion Van Capitial of the US...) Indy and Bloomington (Breaking Away) but I think it was Bloomington that left the best impression upon me...what an incrediblbly beautiful area and the people were wonderful!!
I have had more than one person ask me why I would want to go to Indiana...well, I just happened to go there more than once and it turned out to be a wonderful place with wonderful people. If I had listened to outside opionions I probably would never have visisted Indiana, but I am very happy I did   Smiley Eek, I hope I don't sound like a tourism commerical   Roll Eyes

Thanks for the warm welcome! I don't think that many people down here really know that much about The Romantics. Thats why I wish they would play here. It would give alot of people a chance to hear how great they are. Hopefully they can play Indy, or Bloomington(a great college town). I would def. be there! I think they would blow people away here. I'm glad you liked Indiana, it is a great place. I don't live far from "B-town".  Michigan is beautiful! "Hoosiers" is a great movie! And yes, basketball IS that popular here! My 2 fav. teams are IU, and whoever's playing Purdue! Ha! Take care! Jason

The only Romantics I ever heard was 'What I Like About you" way back then when my sister would play it. Well I went thru my punk phase all through high school and college and didnt pay much attention to them. Up until I saw them last weekend at The Fest. I am a born again fan. I bought there new CD today.  So everyone...tell me ,what have I been missing all these years?

Well, I have 7 of my own and recently took in a mother cat and four kittens. They are 6 weeks old now and still nursing. Have you ever seen the movie "Yours, Mine & Ours" When Lucille Ball tell Henry Fonda how many kids she has. I feel that way when I meet a guy and have to say " I have 12 cats".
BTW- Aren't you also the horse lover on this board? My sister and I just came back from the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington. It was amazing.

Teresa,

Yes!!!  I am most definately the horse lover, as I own two and try to ride as much as possible!  I would love to go to Kentucky one of these days  Grin - haven't had the opportunity yet!

Awe, you are doing a wonderful thing for the Mom and kitties!  I just fostered a Manx kitty, found in the back of my housing development.  Precious.

And, Springsteen - HOW GREAT IS HE??????   Cheesy

Lori,
You must get to the Kentuck Horse Park. I don't ride or anything but just love animals and that part of Kentucky. We were able to go down to the stables and chat with some owners and riders and get close to the horses. I learned a few things too.
Did you know Bruce's daughter is an equestrian? I hope I spelled that right.
We named the mother cat Mia after Mama Mia  Roll Eyes
Take care,
Teresa

Yes, I did know that Bruce rides and his daughter is an Equestrian.  They actually bought one of their horses from a friend of mine in New Jersey.  Wish I coulda been there that day!

Seems I just keep missing Springsteen : (

I've been listening to 61/49 non-stop. It dont think there is a greater feeling then  hearing a great new rock album. And yes maybe even better then sex! Unless you combine the two.....

Hey, I'm also the horse lover here!  Welcome to the newbies.  I've been involved with Arabian horses for over 20 years, and am just waiting for a check to clear to have sold my current mare.   Smiley

Yes, the KY horse park is amazing.  Some of our horse shows are  held there.

This is my fave song on the record...I have loved it from the very first version I heard...and it only became more wonderful with each revision.  Grin 
I must say I love the lyrics in midnite to six too (right Fran)  Tongue

Linda

PS
Still We Remain is truely one of the most incredible songs on the record and it was wonderful that they used Bruce Witkin's (from Supremium) daughters class for the background.  Can you picture the band at the head of the class at the chalkboard?!   Grin

How'd you guess, Linda?!  LOL

My little "country" town made the national news today.  There was a bad plane wreck(I haven't used the "C" word since childhood because of trauma) here last nite.  How awful and it was just a couple miles from my office too.  The planes usually fly in right over our office so I was relieved to find it ok this morning!  The media is all over the place.  Thank goodness two people lived and I'll bet we'll hear their stories later today.  So that's the news from hickville, MO.  Everyone have a safe and happy day!  Lisa
