I'm David, 36, reside in Atlanta, married, son is 22 months and daughter is 4 months. Financial Advisor for Wall Street firm advising wealthy individuals, average guitarist that loves the heavy dark fuzz pedals and soon investing in piano. Interesting to see only a few women have replied here. Either there aren't many women Idaho fans or they choose not to participate in message boards. CANNOT and WILL NOT live without a band not one person has mentioned: Luna Other fav's are Kitchens of Distinction, Starflyer 59, Pale Saints, Morellas Forest, Cocteau Twins, old Church, Smith's, RHP, Idaho of course,Velour 100, recently Death Cab, Interpol

RE: Calling all idaho message board users | from jeremyJan 15 2004 - 13:43

Jeremy in freezing Toronto, Canada, older than all of you, but not wiser, I'm sure. Male genitalia, co-habiting with a South American partner with female version of same and teenaged son. Have a couple of fucking cats, but some human friends, too. I write about and publicize film & tv shows, specializing in documentaries. Can't help using big words once in a while if they hit the spot. I like all the usual slo-core suspects that we all know, along with world, jazz, blues, classical..actually pretty well everything from time to time except rap, hip-hop, techno and all their variations - guess they're the proverbial new tricks this old dog can't appreciate.

He has nothing to declare but his genius...

RE: Calling all idaho message board users | from adamJan 15 2004 - 06:52

Nice diction Mr. Wilde. Save it for Grad School.

RE: Calling all idaho message board users | from Alex NiedtJan 14 2004 - 20:36

So many big words... : )

RE: Calling all idaho message board users | from CodreanuJan 14 2004 - 18:37

I sincerely apologize if I have offended anyones churlish sensibilities by the above cant-laden post. I promise that in future I will exercise greater caution when consuming barbiturates on an empty stomach. Actually, HEffE, according to my Match.com profile I am a 6'2 bodybuilder named Wade with a home in The Hamptons, who enjoys candlelit dinners and long walks on the beach :) My above mention of my cat was an inept attempt at self-deprecation, a facility some of you would do good to acquire. -One last thing. As a she-male with a complementary set of genitalia, I can assure you that it is not all auto-erotic bliss. For I am observant of the Vaticans strictures regarding birth control.....

RE: Calling all idaho message board users | from MixheadJan 14 2004 - 18:23

You people are completely without irony.

RE: Calling all idaho message board users | from JeanJan 14 2004 - 17:21

Not what I was intending to say, but I suppose it's possible. ; )

RE: Calling all idaho message board users | from hey jeanJan 14 2004 - 17:13

"him/her" - so you're saying Codreanu is a shemale?

RE: Calling all idaho message board users | from JeanJan 14 2004 - 16:50

I'm guessing that none of you have ever met Codreanu in person, but you all obviously feel you have the right to judge and label him/her as a pretentious, self-absorbed douchebag. Looks like you all are the real douchebags here.

RE: Calling all idaho message board users | from Alex NiedtJan 14 2004 - 16:42

Yeah, HEffE. I bet we'd make a great match! Especially if I had a single clue as to what the guy was talking about (other than a couple of bands). Great rhyme, by the way. Reminds me of kindergarten...

RE: Calling all idaho message board users | from hEffEJan 14 2004 - 16:15

hey codpiece, I mean codreanu- that's hilarious. is that yr match.com profile???? very dramatic. no wonder your best friend is a fuckin cat. you should meat alex niedt - hey that rhymes!!!!!!!!!!!!!

RE: Calling all idaho message board users | from yepJan 14 2004 - 15:58

overly pretentious doesn't begin to describe that douchebag.

RE: Calling all idaho message board users | from adamJan 14 2004 - 11:16


RE: Calling all idaho message board users | from nopeJan 14 2004 - 05:14

or, an overly pretentious self-absorbed blowhard.

RE: Calling all idaho message board users | from CodreanuJan 13 2004 - 23:21

My name is Codreanu (not really) and I live in Muskogee, Oklahoma (no Merle Haggard jokes please!). Male...Thirty years of age...6'...Hazel eyes...Dark brown hair stylistically morrisseyesque (early 90's)...165 lbs. a tad ectomorphic but gorgous nonetheless.
I am a semi-recluse whose best friend is a diabetic silver persian named Spinoza. When I am not aimlessly dithering about the house or emoting something awful, I occupy myself with reading. Subjects I enjoy include classic literature - Dostoevsky, Hawthorne, Joyce, the prose of Samuel Beckett etc. Philosophy - mostly the Germanics (Schopenhaur, Fichte, Von Hartmann etc.). Although in my salad days I was overtly fond of Sarte *blushes with shame*, Kierkegaard remains my most beloved pervasive influence. I am rather fond of poetry, my favorites include Mallarme, Keats, Rilke, and Pound, amongst others. I listen to music of the 'sadcore' genre, as well as anything nostalgically inflected or of sorrowful idiom....Jacob Faurholt, RHP, Flashpapr, SWS, Black Heart Procession, IDAHO, Spokane, Codeine, Morrissey/The Smiths, Carissa's wierd, Migala, Delphine, Tram, CTFTPA, Joy Division, Arab Strap, The Cure, Lycia, AMC, My Favorite, Galaxie 500, For Stars, Fred Thomas, etc. I revere classical music, the synphonies of Gustav Mahler in particular (pace Robert Smith, it was Mahler who fashioned the original 'Dark Trilogy'!)
Politically, I am decidedly anti-modernist and sowewhere to the right of Joseph De Maistre.
I am currently in the process of conversion to the Catholic Church.
In sum -a winsome eccentric, or dream-wracked schizoid, as you please.
