PostSubject: Howdy All!   Fri Jul 03, 2009 7:14 am

Hi everyone

I've been browsing around this forum for some months now and finally decided to join, haven't posted on any forums in years so gotta get back into it. Smile

Anyway, obviously I'm a big TGA fan. More so since I saw them live for the first time in June.
They're now definitely one of my favourite bands if not THEE favourite. Not sure if they've taken the place of my beloved Muse yet.

I'm 18 from the middle of England.
But in September I'm moving down to Cornwall (South West coast) to go to Falmouth Uni and study Graphic Design, woooo.
Only bad thing about that is it's miles away from any main music venues so I probably won't be able to see Gaslight again unless it's when I'm home. Sad

That's about all. Laughing

Really you can't study it? That sucks. Sad
I've just finished a two year course in Graphics (get my results next week!) and I really can't imagine doing anything else now, so bring on the degree.

So if anyone wants any graphics doing? Wink

Hey. Smile

I'm afraid that is miles away. Like 200 miles or something.
Unless I went by sea. haha.

Closest large venue type place is probably Plymouth, and beyond that Bristol but not sure how I'd get there.
Could be fun to try though!

Having a look at the link now... I'll keep an eye out for them.

Yeah, that's a possibility. They probably don't run too late though, I'd have to camp it out in Bristol for the night. Could be fun!

I haven't welcomed you yet, so hi! Very Happy You've settled in well already though!

I was looking through your DA and saw your GA desktop. Could you upload that image file? It looks deadly.

Hello! Thank you. I'm getting the hang of forum posting again. Haha.

I think I just cropped it from a poster.

you should do a drawing or two for the forum... we have had the same logo for about 6 months now, do something kick ass and I am sure the other admins will agree to use it as the logo

Does it need to be the same dimensions as the existing banner?

I made this:

Didn't want to chop their legs off. XD

But then I made a better banner sized one:

Or I could make it the same size as the current one.

There's also a huge sized one: http://i32.tinypic.com/2s5xq4z.jpg
I dunno, you could use it as desktop wallpaper!


EDIT:

More contrast & smaller:

I like these, but should we not keep up with Benny's new look? There must be some posed pics with him with the short hair.

I appreciate that, as I haven't seen any posed pics online with the new hair do, even if there have been some in various magazines. But like I said, I like the ones you did, I just wondered if the band had to look up to date.
