Random things you want us to know about you:

I'll listen to anything once. I want to travel everywhere and see everything. I smoke cigars but hate smoking. I'm a Capitals, Cubs, Titans, and Buckeyes fan for all very good reasons (not a bandwagoner). My goal in life is to become a Colorado State Patrol Officer or Arizona Highway Patrol Officer. The West fascinates me to no end and I'm doing anything I can to move out there.

Real name:

chris birdwell (too many Chistopher's in the world apparently, my name was changed to my last name, against my will, in 3rd or 4th grade unforunately)

Favorite Bands:

The Murder City Devils, The Snake The Cross The Crown/Curbside Service, Boston, Grade, Northstar, Beulah, The Pine Hill Haints, Lucero, Hot Water Music, Beatles, Thin Lizzy, ect. ect. ect. (as with everybody I could go on and on and on and on and on)

What's your Facebook/Twitter/Tumblr etc.?:

I go to/attended The University of Alabama...you can find me on facebook if you care, I didn't change my url when all that crap became available

Hobbies (outside of record collecting):

Black and White Photography and listening to music in general...I've realized I'm not too good at much of anything in the past few years...I used to really enjoy playing music and recording music, unfortunately that's become more and more of an imposibility as of late...also become more and more aware of my age and my lack of actual talent each and every day, reality bites

Play in a band? Run a record label? Link us!:

don't have anything current, but I continue to randomly write and record

http://www.myspace.com/projectraisetheflag some of my stuff is up here

http://www.myspace.com/theauxilary did this for a little while...wasn't 100% into the music, but had a blast with these guys

Random things you want us to know about you:

didn't start drinking until halfway through my 22 year of life...but apparently have made up for lost time in the past 5 years (for better or worse). I don't quite understand how people still beleive in God/Higher Power...the Easter Bunny is fake, Santa is fake, Tooth Fairy is fake...there's a common trend here, but to each their own, whatever makes you happy I suppose (wish Christians didn't spend so much time pushing their beliefs on others though). I'm absolutely an Alabama Football Fanatic. I thrive on live music. I work at the number 2 Jimmy John's in the nation (as based on Royalty Sales) our store holds the top 4 spots on their single-day sales records for the entire 27 years the company has been around...wish I got paid accordingly, been there for 6 years (for every one of the top 4 spots) and can still barely keep my head above water. Seem to hate my job more and more and more each and every day. I feel like I bitch about my life quite a bit, but I genuinely feel my life warrents it. I can't stand cats, in the past 4 years I've had a cat have liquid shits on my chest while I was sleeping and another piss all over me while I was trying to sleep...Fuck cats. One of my best-friends of 10 or so years (who owned the first cat mentioned) left me high and dry after he and his girlfriend dicked me out of around $200 about 2.5 years ago and moved to Seattle...didn't see that one coming, honestly...shit's weak. I think about selling my vinyl almost daily now. I think about getting a band together almost daily as well. My family life ain't the greatest...starting to think it might be affecting my life more than I ever thought it would. I have been diagnosed with High Blood Pressure, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, and Depression....all of which I currently do not take any kind of medication for....wish I had more money. I'm 2 classes away from finally graduating from the University of Alabama...been almost 10 years now (on and off)...shit's weak. Plan on moving to Austin, Texas in the very near future.

edit: actual fun fact. I'm the kid singing along front and center on the insert photograph of Frank Turner's "Poetry of the Deed" album

p.s. been drinking a bit, so if spelling/gramatical errors are present, that'd be why

Hobbies (outside of record collecting): / Random things you want us to know about you:

I spent 7 years going to school for psychology and journalism and now I work for a computer electronics company. I train in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and am a big MMA fan (but I don't wear Tapout or Affliction shirts), follow hockey religiously, and spend my free time playing video games and raising my 1.5 year old son. I'm looking forward to teaching him how to skate this winter!

Here's a terrible pic of me and an awesome pic of my son before we head off to Beijing!

Random things you want us to know about you:

- Got a little boy who is now 2.5 and is wise enough to tell me that CONVERGE is "too loud Daddy, play Wiggles"

Sounds familiar. My son used to smile whenever I played Pig Destroyer. Now he looks at me like I'm a fucking retard. It's amazing how just a few months affects the discerning tastes of a toddler.

Favorite Bands: I could rattle my brain and come up with a list, but it's easier to just put my last.fm here:

http://www.last.fm/user/garrygumguru

What's your Facebook/Twitter/Tumblr etc.?:

I'm pretty anti-social, so I don't have much need for social networking sites.

Hobbies (outside of record collecting):

I love watching movies from the 30s, 40s, and 50s. I'm super bummed that I don't get Turner Classic Movies on my TV anymore, but I get a few more things done now...and I don't stay up until odd hours or get up super early to catch a movie anymore which is nice.

Play in a band? Run a record label? Link us!:

I do not. But a fun fact, my user name comes from middle school/ early high school when I wanted to start a ska band and name it: Garry Gum Guru and Billy the Frog. Not kidding. I just kinda stuck with it for screen names throughout the years. I also had an idea for characters/ logos that would include a wizard blowing a giant bubble (Garry Gum Guru) and then just a normal sized frog (Billy). I love gimmicky things.

Side note: I'm super excited for the Ska Is Dead 7" series.

Random things you want us to know about you:

I'm straight edge. I have a sweet dog that's most likely a German Shepard/ Dachshund mix, and her name is Casey. All of my pet's names have started with "C".

And...great faces, great places South Dakota.

I always laughed to myself when I drove my nephew around. We'd go from Between the Buried and Me............to Backyardigans........oh the horror.

I like beer, specifically hops. Drink as much craft beer as I can. Used to do a lot of rock climbing and backpacking.

Real name:

Matthew

Favorite Bands:

The Beatles, Cursive, All Heroes, Led Zeppelin, Glassjaw, New Found Glory, Counterfit, Hey Mercedes, The Suicide File, Refused... etc.

What's your Facebook/Twitter/Tumblr etc.?:

I have a facebook with around 15 friends, which is embarrassing enough without linking you all to it.

Hobbies (outside of record collecting):

I like school and reading, that takes up most of my days. I watch a lot of movies, that takes up most of my nights. I have only recently started reading comics, mostly Batman comics I steal from friends. I also like movie posters. I have Milk and Wall-e in this room, Forbidden Planet and Annie Hall in the living room.

Play in a band? Run a record label? Link us!:

I suppose the band I'm in broke up but then again we were never really a band just a bunch of friends. Never played a show, or recorded on anything besides a tape recorder in the garage. Our name was Rock Taco.

Random things you want us to know about you:

I've been a member of this board for a little while but never post. I usually just check the vinyl section for updates on upcoming releases. Perhaps I'll venture over here more. I'm 23 years old. I didn't think I would ever be involved in academia after graduating from high school and for three years after that I wasn't, but now I am at Davis studying to be a research professor of evolutionary theory. I guess you could call me straight edge in the sense that I don't drink or use any other recreational drugs, but I don't really associate myself with that label. I have two kittens, Charles Darwin and Frank Sinatra, and they wake me up at 5 am every day. And I'm going on a bike ride in the morning!
