I can't believe that my member number is what it is.

Has anybody ever wrote a history of all the different Beck forums that existed - those were the times.

;)

Okay... I was already drifting into becoming a lurker but let's at least try to be active. I've kind of lost the touch of posting on forums, I guess.

I'm a Beck fan from Finland and I've been a fan for a couple of years now. However, If I recall correctly, I liked Loser, Hotwax and that famous clip of Beautiful way a lot earlier than a few years ago. I really like Mellow Gold -era Beck and songs from that period and earlier are my favourites. Especially the demo tapes, even though I don't have enough money to buy them for myself. One Foot in the Grave is really cool too, expanded edition even more so. I've never seen Beck live but maybe if he sometimes comes here, I'll go see him.

I found this site from whiskeyclone's facebook page, even though I think i have wondered here before that also.

As for things I like besides Beck... I like to play video games, watch cheesy, low-budget horror movies and listen to all kinds of music. Also, I like to play my guitar and write songs. I also have a harmonica, balalaika, keyboard and I just got a banjo and a mandolin (which might be broken, haven't seen it yet), but I can't really play any of these well... yet. I'm really excited about the banjo though.

That's about it.

I am aware, and it is on my list. Sadly, I can't find the existing script yet, so I may have to write it myself.

The exciting thing about that is that we could potentially make BBCode to do just about AANNNNNNYYYTHING. The only real limitation being the time to make it happen!

Oh, hey, I didn't see this thread when I joined last month or whenever it was.

I've been a Beck fan since I borrowed Odelay in '96 from a friend who was borrowing from a friend of hers. I think it was a CD so I had to dub it to a cassette so I could play it over and over in my '81 Olds Delta Royale. Then an old boyfriend gave me Stereopathetic Soulmanure on vinyl for my birthday even though i didn't own a record player. I think Beck and I were just going steady until I heard the first track of Midnight Vultures. That's when I really fell hard.

I found stewoo (and the hub) probably just from googling stuff about the shows I saw: either back in '06 after seeing Beck in Davis, CA or '08 after seeing him at Outside Lands. I don't think i joined then ~ grad school got in the way of being too fanatical. Now i'm done with school, I saw him in Bend in May and I'm back in it - trying to control the obsession.

But really, I'm so grateful you're all here. I only know one person in real life that's a big fan, but even then I feel like I can't properly geek out, so thanks! Much love!

Yeah, that all sounds pretty familiar!


EDIT:

Wait, I don't actually know a Beck fan in my daily life any more.

Hi everybody!
I'm new to this here space, but definitely not to Beck. I remember becoming increasingly fascinated by him until I broke down and bought Midnight Vultures when it was released. I've been happily hooked ever since. I reclaimed the Beck subgroup on Reddit, so if you are a redditor we would love to have you in that community as well

Oh, a bit of shameless self-promotion. I run a blog called http://somekindofawesome.com and as Beck news comes up I gush about it there.

Really happy to be here! :)

I've stalked you all for years. Seriously, I've been on here as a guest a couple times in the last five years, but never gave it much thought of joining. I used to be on Jamiroquai forums because I loved the pop/funk but the fans sucked (to the point where they kind of ruined the band for me). I really got into Beck around Grade 11 (around 2008) but I've liked his music since around 1999, I just never knew who it was singing the songs (they were all tracks from Odelay, mainly Devils Haircut and Where It's At).
