I'm currently an Environmental Studies-Humanities major (don't ask what it is, just know that it basically means I'll be asking people if they want fries with their meal OR working with Greenpeace after I graduate) with an Art minor (putting yet another hole in the already sinking ship) at Eckerd College here in St. Petersburg, Florida. My actual home is in Phillipsburg, New Jersey (no jokes about what exit off the Turnpike else you'll feel the wrath of my road rage...or something). Let's see, I'm 19, male, Ares, and I like rain and long walks...wait, sorry, wrong page...I'm one of those "freaks" of society in that I like to confuse/scare/intrigue other people. I play bass guitar, I like video games, I listen to most kinds of music, I like to read fantasy novels, watching The Simpsons and other animated shows, playing table-top and live-action RPGs, the Rocky Horror Picture Show and hockey.
So ANYWAY here's may "how I got into Fruvous" story: One day, in 1998 I believe, two of my friends and I decided to go to Red Bank, New Jersey to visit Jay and Silent Bob's Secret Stash (comic/memorabilia store owned and operated by Kevin Smith, director of Clerks, Mallrats, Chasing Amy and Dogma), when we missed the exit and continued east towards New York City. We went through the Holland Tunnel, drove around those awful roads for an hour (though my driving skills improved greatly...damn taxis trying to sneak ahead of me) then we left. Now I need to tell you that my minivan had a problem with it's gas gauge...it didn't like to tell me the correct amount of gas in the tank. So we were driving back home when all of a sudden pressing the gas didn't make the enging speed up (that's bad, by the way), so I pulled off the next exit with the last vapors of processed petrolium in the tank and parked the car. I sent my two friends off to find some gas while I stayed with the car (listening to the radio).
Then this song comes on about the King of Spain and I think it's one of the coolest things I've ever heard in my life. Well anyway my friends get back with a red tank of gas (which I later learned was "borrowed" from the back of a pick-up truck) and we got home. Well I forgot about the song until the other day when I was looking at my friend's .mp3s on the school's network when I came across a song labeled "They Might Be Giants - The King of Spain" so I listened to it and at first noticed it wasn't in fact TMBG but a really cool band otherwise. Then I remembered that day 2 years before and was happy to have finally put a band to the song. Now I'm planning on purchasing some of Moxy's albums to give more diversity to my music collection.
