Hey guys. Longtime lurker, first time poster. Let's see, what should you know about me?

My name is Andy and I'm from New Jersey. I'm a journalism student working toward being an entertainment writer and currently interning at an alternative weekly newspaper in Philly. I first got into Gaslight the summer after Senor and the Queen dropped and they quickly became my favorite band--the bootlegs, the vinyls, the merch, etc. Incidentally, I've used the pricing guide and the lists you guys keep---cannot overstate how helpful they were.

I mostly hang with crust punks and, er, "hipsters," so with the exception of my girlfriend and a couple more tolerant friends, nobody in the crowd I run with can tolerate Gaslight's [comparatively] poppy sound and slick production. With that in mind I have decided to shed the trappings of my cool/crusty friends and join the ranks of the nerds--that is, you dudes.

Also, I notice one of the more regular posters here has an avatar of Amy Pond from Doctor Who. Awesome.

thanks for that, and 'welcome' to you, fellow Gaslight nerd study

Technically, 3. Waaayyy south. Town of Glassboro, right down the road from Rowan University, if that means anything to you. How about you?

A friend of mine went to Rowan, for engineering. I live in Hunterdon county, nowhere near the parkway. People ask me what exit and I tell them, I'm an hour away from the parkway, all the way west by PA.

Damn, that is quite a hike. However, I do generally know where that is!

It is not too bad, since I'm an hour from Philly, NYC and the shore.

15 min and I'm in New Hope, PA, which is a cool town and 35min to New Brunswick. I want to move to the Basking Ridge/Bridgewater area.
