Welcome Montserrat :)

As one of the wiltier of the wall flowers I deeply appreciate the vibrancy, inclusiveness and creativity that this community exhibits that compells people to interact and share thier gifts. Maybe it's just the nature of FotC to attract special people but just knowing such a confluence of such interesting, warm people exists gives me deep fortification and resiliencey in the face of the grey dross life chucks in yer face.

Hi Felty! thank you very much for your welcome. I´ve had a bit difficult time reading your post, because I´m not that skilled when it comes about english language, but i think i´ve finally got the meaning of your words. I share with you the feeling of amazingness about the people on the board, and the quirkiness of, us, the FotC´s lovers (and for quirkiness I mean the quality of being lovely freaky about lovely freakies that do quirky lovely music and series and such ;D ) Hope that makes sense

Even I´m a newbie here I´ve realized that between board members it flows a lot of good feelings, love and friendship, and I find it very inspiring too. #hug#

I look after see u around here further #blowkiss#


Oh and hi Silwya!!!! #blowkiss#

I definitely am of a like mind in regards to the lovely freakies. I genuinely do feel FotC has the most vivacious, outgoing fans, so much so that I'm perfectly content to be a fringe dweller. Reading the marvellously entertaining contributions here has givin me at least as much pleasure as FotC themselves. Hopefully the Conchords shall tour again sometime in the not too distant future then you too can share in the overwhelming vibrancy and borderline euphoria that positively effervesces off the bubbling excitement. I don't know if it's a unique sensation as this is the first fan community that I've participated in to any degree but the inner smile I had all during the last tour warms me to this day.

I even derive a certain enjoyment from the threads about boy butts though I can't fathom the appeal. Everyone knows that's where cooties comes from.

Also, I must apologise for my less than orthodox english, I should have endevoured to be more coherent. I'm guilty of lapsing into the colloquil and my spelling and grammar has a tendancy to get a bit fast and loose. Still, I'm uncomfortable trying to simplify my gibberish too much, afraid of lapsing into percieved condesencion. (To be fair, native english speakers find me fairly impenetrable too sometimes)

I love your use of language, vivid, adventurous, fun, lacking some of the inhibition inherent in over familiarity :) You only omit some of the boring betweeny junk anyways, gives you a streamlined feel :P]

Thanks to you too Emira, I appreciate your role as lighthouse keeper here. The emotes of the blue smiley interfering with the yellow smiley were particulary endearing. My sentiments might seem gratuitous but I assure everyone that theyre heartfelt, I just dont have the equipment for plain speech.

What a beautiful comparison! #cloud9#

And because I lack of such flow of English words that would bring a proper meaning,
here's some more #glomp# #glomp# #glomp# #angel# #blowkiss# #blowkiss# #blowkiss#

Yes, yes, and yes Sir, I´m with U about this

I wish they would tour again, but i´m pretty sure that they wouldn´t come to Spain, as they aren´t that popular here, and then there is the language barrier too. For me, would be quite difficult to catch the pulse to a live show too...maybe I must get ready now that I have time enought, and get some UK/USA erasmus dude (student exchange program), or even some mormon XDDD (they offer free conversation classes here, in order to catch some followers). Practice makes perfection eh? #haha#
Anyhow, you´re right, even if I couldn´t attend any gig, I would welcome a tour just for the shake of living the excitation here in the board. #excited#

I don't know if it's a unique sensation as this is the first fan community that I've participated in to any degree but the inner smile I had all during the last tour warms me to this day.

Same here, my first fan community ever, and my first experience about fandom (at least as an adult, grown woman) #sadlove#

I even derive a certain enjoyment from the threads about boy butts though I can't
fathom the appeal. Everyone knows that's where cooties comes from.

I can tell u that I´ve laughed like a fool about some of the most "come out tune" comments, people here are witty enough to make the lewdest comment in an enjoyable way, and I find it very funny. I love seeing the girls going nuts about the guys butts and such, as I go nuts too on the inside...but I´m still too shy to express myself about this, I´m afraid that my "streamline feel", as u said, could go too streamlined for a lady of my age #rofl# #rofl# #rofl# #rofl#

Also, I must apologise for my less than orthodox english, I should have endevoured to be more coherent. I'm guilty of lapsing into the colloquil and my spelling and grammar has a tendancy to get a bit fast and loose.

Not really, it´s my fault

Still, I'm uncomfortable trying to simplify my gibberish too much, afraid of lapsing into percieved condesencion. (To be fair, native english speakers find me fairly impenetrable too sometimes)

U have to write/talk the way u feel confortable and natural with, anyhow, if I have any problem understending your posts, i can always ask for some sidelight eh (please?) :)

I love your use of language, vivid, adventurous, fun, lacking some of the inhibition inherent in over familiarity :) You only omit some of the boring betweeny junk anyways, gives you a streamlined feel :P]

OMG OMG OMG this is the kindest and loveliest way to tell somebody "your english sucks, but I don´t mind if U talk like Tarzan" #rofl# #rofl# #rofl# #rofl# #iheartu#

Thanks to you too Emira, I appreciate your role as lighthouse keeper here.

Same here Sylwia #blowkiss#

Oooooh stop it, stop it #cry#

EDIT: YES, I´M THAT DUMB. I CAN´T USE THE "QUOTE" OPTION PROPERLY :(

The only one? Really? I have always thought that FOTC guys are the kind of guys that boys want as buddies, girls want as boyfriends, and moms want as sons in law ;D

There are a few other fellas who've graced the board but old Felty seems to be the only (semi)active one lately. B+J have many male fans I'm sure but I suspect some mans are probably reticent when it comes to displays of fanboyishness, the usual hangups in play. For me, I have deep admiration and gratitude for what they do and what they have done for me.

Most would probably classify me as introverted and undemonstrative, not particulary effusive. FotC and the community were such rich gifts that I felt only natural to give back something, even my own meager contributions. You see, my life had lapsed into a dreary grey funk. My work was suffocatingly tedious and was poisoning my life, robbed me of any zeal, ossified my spirit if you'll excuse the fancy. I was groaning under the burden of dissillusionment, cynicism and what I can only call a deadly malaise.

I stumbled across a FotC track one day, I think it was Bowie or Robots, it doesnt matter which. Instantly I was captivated, it wasnt just the amazing chemistry, showmanship and musicianship that got me. What lay at the heart of it was the pure lack of cynicism, the humility and genuine good nature that informed all that I saw. It was so simple, but so compellingly honest, but also so intricately woven. I find myself groping for words to describe how it touched me, it was like the sun at last.

The laughter and untarnished joy welling up in me was revelatory. There was still some pure things in the world, laughter, unsullied with a hint of spite, performance for the joy of sharing, edifying, entertaining. Noone was the butt of the jokes and yet I could identify with the jabs they took at themselves. Learning grace was still alive and manifest in the songs of these two was enough for me.

I thought to percieve similar joys in the reactions of other people around the world. The ebullience of thier outpourings just deepened and enriched my appreciation for them. And so I'm here, typing this unbearable gushiness. Part of me quavers at sharing something so deeply personal but the nature of FotC and what they mean to people demands I relinquish this much of myself.

Bleh, I feel rude now for having hijacked your introthread with my orgy of sentimentality. I better post now before it dies in the clipboard.

And please Montserrat don't belittle yourself. It's patently clear from reading your posts that you have a rare agility and creativity that the folks here surely appreciate. ;)

Just stop it. You're not dumb, just unexperienced. Let me show you how you could fix it. You can post in " " just as felty did or put it in the "quote box". If you want to close the text you're quoting, you use [ /quote ] like here:

[ quote="felty"]I definitely am of a like mind in regards to the lovely freakies. I genuinely do feel FotC has the most vivacious, outgoing fans, so much so that I'm perfectly content to be a fringe dweller. [ /quote ]

Of course, when you remove the spaces the result will be this:

felty wrote:I definitely am of a like mind in regards to the lovely freakies. I genuinely do feel FotC has the most vivacious, outgoing fans, so much so that I'm perfectly content to be a fringe dweller.


And then when you want to quote one more fragment, you can highlight the text and use Quote button over the message window or type [ quote ] texttexttext... [ / quote ] so it looks like this:



[ quote ] Hopefully the Conchords shall tour again sometime in the not too distant future then you too can share in the overwhelming vibrancy and borderline euphoria that positively effervesces off the bubbling excitement. [ / quote ]

and when you remove the spaces the result is this:

I hope it's not too complicated. #hug#

Dear Felty and Sylwia, don´t worry about me being mean to myself #hug#
All that "I´m dumb" "I´m pathetic" babble is only a pose that I can display because, in my inner soul and heart, I know I´m the coolest cat that someone could be, a total genius, the global charmer, for sure the smartest pen on earth, I officially totally rock a lot #buttrock# #rofl# #rofl# #rofl#

No, seriously, I think that my difficulties with the board features come mainly from the fact that I usually post when I´m at office, and I put a very tiny window in the corner of the pc´s screen, so my boss can´t see me doing my extra-occupational activities #evilgrin# (When I get saturated I refresh mi mind checking the board / twitter and such, and in five minutes my batteries are full and ready to follow with my professional tasks). The consequence: I always post super quickly, and I haven´t had the time to explore further all the possibilities of the board. I MUST take a moment to explore the posting features and such at home, but then is when I even have less time to do it (to do home cleaning, to cook for the next day, to walk the dog, to pay attention to hubby, etc etc etc)

Sylwia your instructions will be very usefull, I thank you a lot for taking the time to explain this to me #blowkiss#

Felty, your kind words about my writing skills give me confidence and for sure I´ll write with a carefree feeling from now #hug#
