Title: A Thread For Introductions
Post by: moleshow on October 16, 2016, 10:14:15 am
since i was having some difficulties in figuring out how to get folks to actually... well, use the forum, the idea of an introductions thread was proposed to me. your post should/can consist of

-name (make one up if you have to.)
-a non-Rz interest, like a hobby or something.
-current favorite album(s)/project(s) from The Rz

i'll start.

you can call me moleshow or mole or (insert name). an interest of mine is Beanie Babies, but only the bears. i also draw/paint. current favorite project is Wormwood.

Hey Moleshow, Hope this thing takes off.
 33 year fan from the Chicagoland area. You may have attended a Huddle or two that I have hosted in the Chicago area beginning in '98.
Looking forward with an open mind to the new changes in our favorite band.
Peace- Out!

Thanks for making another forum for the Rez. I never found the official chat roll very useful because I'm never at a computer/website for long periods of time, and any "discussion" there would be lost after so long.

Been a Rez fan for 20 years, got hooked on the Bad Day game and I'm still hooked. Also started listening to Zappa and Sun Ra around the same time, and those 3 artists make up a large portion of my collection (so damn prolific are they).

Right now the latest Bobuck stuff is what I'm most into. I've always like the instrumental Rez, and I'm glad he is still making music.

My most cherished Rez item is a book that was sold during the Bunny Boy era as an eBay auction. I'm sure people remember he was selling items from his room, a lot of them were art pieces (or found objects), but I bought a book for a fair price and emailed "Bunny" to ask if he'd sign it before it got mailed off, which he did, in character. Not sure if he did that for anyone else, but I'm lucky to have such a unique item.

A Good Hello.  Long time fan here.  I love climbing trees, mushroom hunting, and making wood block prints.  Current spins are Demons Dance Alone and The Big Bubble.  Both are moody, albeit on different planets.  Blessed Be.

HELLO! I am Meisekimiu! I go by "mewee" on the Residents website chat! I am a hip young millenial who has been a Residents fan for more than 2 whole months! (Okay, it's been more like 5 years at this point, but that's basically nothing compared to most **** fans).

In addition to being a Residents fan, I'm also into Japanese culture, including that weird anime stuff and Japanese pop idols! Yeah... it's kind of weird that I like Japanese pop idols and The Residents considering that idol music is probably the most disgustingly commercial pop music ever, but hey, I like it. And I enjoy the fact that I like both.  :P

My favorite Residents project ever will probably forever be Not Available. It's just wonderful and I love it so very much. In terms of things that aren't forever going to be my favorite every time, I guess right now I've been really digging The Gingerbread Man album as of late. It's pretty neato!

ho7mes is my name here as well as on RYM and Lastfm.

I first heard Goosebumps as a kid and thought it was the weirdest thing ever. I remembered it when I was in high school around 2008 (I'm 24 now) and decided to check them out. They've been my favorite band ever since.

I like video games a lot. I've especially been getting into Japanese spaceship shooters.

Not Available is my favorite album ever. As for more recent material, Mush-Room is probably my favorite.

my name is dixie! i LOVE horror, and i desperately want to see a ghost. i found out about the residents through a friend... they were very much into the residents when we were in high school. i enjoyed listening to them talk about it and i enjoyed it when they showed me some things by them but i hadn't ever considered listening by myself. but then they showed me Cube E version of Jambalaya... i thought it was the most beautiful thing i had ever seen...! i've loved the residents ever since then. as for my favorite album? i absolutely adore demons dance alone!!!

I got interested in The Residents when I was a DJ at a college radio station in Louisiana in 1983. Listeners would sometimes request Constantinople.

Over the years, I loved The Residents appearance, back stories, crypticness, and all around weirdness. But I just didn't get the actual music. Even the live shows weren't doing it for me. Finally I went to see the Wonder of Weird show. Afterwards, I bought a couple of CDs, Coochie Brake and Ten Two Times.

Coochie Brake didn't work for me, and neither did most of Ten Two Times. When I heard the two versions of Midnight, suddenly things clicked. It was like the flicking of a switch. Suddenly, I liked all the music on Ten Two Times. I liked all the music on Coochie Brake. I went through the few records I had. I now loved all the music. Quickly, I purchased practically their entire catalog, and they became my favorite band.

I have 5 cats, my hobby is seeking weird music, and my favorite Residents record is The Bunny Boy.

I'm Dutchfan. I'm 53 YO, and live in Holland.
I know The Residents since 1981 and bought "Mark of The Mole". I liked it, but somehow found it to weird.
A few years later I also bought "Stars and Hank Forever". Loved the Hank-side of the LP, was not so sure about the Stars...

Anyways lost track of them after that, until 2010, when I heard The Ughs.
Since then the rest is history.

Post by: CheerfulHypocrite on November 16, 2016, 03:35:07 pm
Dear All,

I am a Cheerful Hypocrite.

I know I was a lot younger when I first heard the Residents. I may have purchased my first Residents LP, on vinyl, from the Late Pete Burns in Probe Records on Mathew Street - opposite the Armadillo Tea Rooms. Now gone. But the Bust of Jung, with the quote about Liverpool being the Pool of Life is still there. If you are ever visiting. You can stand on a Manhole Cover. The same Cosmic Manhole Cover as Bill Drummond - 28th November 2013 - stood on and stare at the steps of Probe Records. Naturally, Probe Records is gone. Translocated elsewhere.

 I suspect Pete Burns may have seen the Residents on the 29th June 1983 Royal Court in the Royal Court. Although, he was probably expecting to see them at The State. For various treasons, the venue was moved. I only suspect this because that is the date printed on the Ticket I have from the State. Where I did not go. No. Not me. Not that easily fooled. Well, I am, but not that day. I wandered to the Royal Court and saw the whole thing. Afterwards I jumped upon a bus from the bubble stops and fled the scene. Tremendously happy, as I recall it.

As a consequence of early age exposure to the Residents, I have a developed the need to sustain delusions about their various identities and so forth. This is generally harmless but completely unreliable. It has involved various people - of generally good character - from across the globe, being incited  to take part in time travel and various implausible reports.

Bunny is possibly my most sentimentally favourite. Having bribed the Box Office, in London, with Chocolates for various reasons, I do have a strange affection for the whole thing. Especially since I ended up in Cambridge. Watching all of the Bunnification Webination to date. It was an interesting few days.

Somewhere between Mole and Bunny, I acquired a slight brain injury. I did recover. I suspect I did not recover when I believed I recovered.

Hello, you skeletons and space cadets!
 
I am Sebastianne, also known as Erick the Ghost.  I am a musician, historian and fortune teller from Maryland, USA.  I've been a fan of the Residents for a few years now, and have been working through the associated acts (Snakefinger, Renaldo and the Loaf, etc) ever since.  I've seen the band live once and hope to see them again.
 
I am currently obsessed with the Intermission album, especially the track "Would We Be Alive?".

Glad to meet you all!

Post by: ZZaunkoenig on January 06, 2017, 07:13:11 pm
My name is ZZaunkoenig. The 1st Z stands for Zacharias, "Zaunkoenig" means "wren", a small but very lively singer. Actually the name derives from the alliteration of the names of Duckburgh inhabitants. So blame Carl Barks on that.
I first discovered The Residents ca. at 1980 when I read an article about them in a german music magazine called "Fachblatt Musikmagazin". I heard and loved them until God in Three Persons - and then forgot them because my interests moved in another direction.
Then somehow somewhen I rediscovered them - and loved them more than ever. I had the luck to be able to buy a collection of dvds and cds from a guy on eBay. And I was able to see them two times live - first time in Hamburg at the Wonder of the Weird Show, second time in Düsseldorf at the Shadowland Tour (which was sooo great).
My favorite albums? That changes every once in a while. Maybe one of my all time favorites is River of Hades - but that is only one album. Everytime I hear an album I discover something new. That's a sign for really great music, isn't it?
I'm just listening to the Mole Show while I'm writing this. What a damn **** great show that was.
Other music I like is Frank Zappa (also discovered around 1980) and Captain Beefheart and Yes and Led Zeppelin and ... The Beatles of course ... and Fantômas (one very great band - listen to them!).

Hey folks! Nice to see a new Rz forum, I used to be quite active on Residents Lovers where I was known as lohmotiv and I was taken aback that it suddenly closed down.

I decided to go with dookybrain this time around seeing as that was the name given to me by Roger the Bunny Boy back in '09!

My favorite album is Not Available, the one I used to like the least was Voice of Midnight but eventually after a few listens it kinda grew on me. I have been dutifully collecting any and everything they put out for years now and luckily it seems the train isn't gonna stop just yet! Yay! First live show I was able to attend was Talking Light, now last week I've been to In Between Dreams in Nijmegen and I'm actually going a second time to see them in Amsterdam as well.

See you around!

Hi, I'm ADeadlyFriend but you can call me "Deadly" if you want. I'm a 20-year-old Residents fan living in a Wisconsin town you'd have never heard of if you didn't live in it, and have been fan for a year as of last September. Aside from the Residents I enjoy tokusatsu and various manga. One day I hope to publish my own comics and design monsters for Super Sentai and Kamen Rider. When it comes to my favorite RZ project, it would be easier to decide my favorite hole in a sponge, but I do love Demons Dance Alone.
