I am not sure if there is one of these, I just recently started posting under this name and used tolurk under two other names for awhile. Hi, I am Billy. I live in Pittsburgh and I work teaching inner city kids how to put out poetry zines and at a toy store.
Hello, I am Aidan. I've always posted under this name. I'm from Dublin in Ireland and I make music under a few names, most prominently my folky project porn on vinyl ; www.myspace.com/pornonvinyl , and my chiptuney project hipster youth; www.myspace.com/hipsteryouthh I'm currently in an art course preparing a portfolio for college entry. if anyone would like some album art/design done, I'd be glad to help when/if I can find the time.

hi, im emily from california. i've been listening to phil's music for a couple years now. I have to say that his music has influenced me more than anything else I have ever heard. I still remember the first time I heard one of his songs, because it made me remember my surroundings and how i felt that day. His music has changed my life for the better, and I came to this forum because the other site with all the wonderful concerts was taken down. I'm currently trying to finish my collection of his concerts. I've never actually been to a concert of his, since I live in the middle of nowhere and am basically a broke college student. I'm studying music at a junior college and really want to meet phil someday. I would also like to meet some other fans of phil's music, so if you're interested in a friendship please pm me.

Hello, I'm Dan from Fort Lauderdale, Florida. I like anything historical. I play music, but mostly to keep myself occupied. I like to imagine me writing these great indie ballads about various girls I meet but they never materialize. I currently go to a community college where my focus is art history, but I don't think that I will pursue that for very long.
In terms of The Microphones / Mount Eerie, the first song I ever heard was "Great Ghosts" and I immediately fell in love with it. It was a time in my life where it just had this profound effect on me. Every time I listen to it now, the flashbacks are immense.
Hello. I am David (or damg) some oldies might remember me from the old trivialbeing board. its great to be back! ive been busy making music. i also got the chance to meet Phil at his show here in Glasgow recently with No Kids. nice guy, although he was eating at the time so i left him to it. Anyway, yeah, hi's etc.
My name is Matt. I used to post on the old board a bit years ago when I first became obsessed by everything Phil touches and his entire ethos. I love his DIY style and have been collecting the majority of his output since around 2005.
I got the chance to meet Phil quite briefly on his last tour supporting Earth. I saw him at an Earth show and then a week later at ATP Curated by Jeff Mangum where I gave him a zine I made with my friends. We all spoke quite enthusiastically about the photo book Mount Eerie Pts. 6 & 7 which I introduced my two friends too when we first arrived at university. It's been a major influence for all of us.
At the Jeff Mangum show the sound guys had a few smoke machines on stage. When asked if he wanted more fog, Phil shouted: "Yes! Maximum fog!" It has stuck with me since and I think it would be the perfect title for a project which I'm just starting work on now. Obviously, it's also my username.
I was sad when the old board closed and I was very excited today to find it was up and running again. I heard Clear Moon the other day - I've preordered it too (in case this upsets any purists), but I couldn't wait to hear it - and it's rekindled my love for Mount Eerie so I look forward to chatting and discussing all that Mount Eerie is with you all.

Hello I'm Alexandra. I live in the woodsey part of CT. I'm an illustrator and graphic designer. I dig dig dig Phil's stuff. Seeing Wind's Poem live in a little itty bitty basement in the midwest was an out of body experience. This is me; rateyourmusic.com/~goandcutyourhair
Hey guys, I'm Cesar! I'm from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and I make music under some pseudonyms in the internet (mostly breakcore and ambient stuff) and I work as record producer with some local rock bands. I've made album artworks for other bands too.
I got into Phil's stuff last year but, since last week (when I finally listened to "The Glow pt. 2"), I'm totally immerse in his albums and, now, I feel influenced too much by him.
