Hello

I've been snooping around in your forum every now and then, so when C.. cordially invited me to actually join I thought why not.

So, some random info about me:
Gender: male
Nationality: Finnish
Live in: Finland
Age: more than I care to remember... 40 or so
Profession: translator
Interests: reading, writing, birds, music, vulgar humour, history

Maybe that's enough for now; ask for gory details if you're curious enough. Since probably most people on a NW forum are more or less interested in Finnish and Finland, I'll be happy to help if something perplexes you as regards these.

Hi there- I also joined after the closing of the old official forum, some of you might have seen me over there:

Name: Himiko (Emma is my actual name, but it is also ridiculously common, so it's probably simpler to stick with Himiko :P)
Age: 22
Location: UK
Interests: Reading, listening to music, browsing internets, jobseeking (not really a hobby, but something I spend a lot of my time doing these days). Occasionally, when I have enough spare pennies for ingredients, I like to bake.
Bands I like: Blind Guardian, Skindred, Sabaton, Subway to Sally, Alestorm, Finntroll, Loreena McKennitt, Helium Vola, Trevor Jones, Ayreon, Nightwish, E Nomine, The Black Mages, Abney Park, Steeleye Span, Iron Maiden, Lindisfarne and various others.
Religion: Agnostic
Smoker: Not really
Drinker: I've never drunk alone, but having been a student for some years before this, a lot of alcohol has been consumed. Am cutting down mostly for financial reasons, but also because I'm trying to lose a little weight, and the hangovers hit me much harder these days: ->

Additional Info: I like to play Devil's Advocate, especially on forums, so my apologies for that. I can be a bit of a pessimist. More to follow. Possibly.

I never noticed this before, but yeah, on the surface of things I seem like a huge nerd. My name is even a combination of my two favourite video game characters...

I've been into Battlelore for a while, long before I ever joined any Nightwish forum, but it's cool to see other people who like them - as for BG, I love Nightfall in Middle Earth SO MUCH.

Crimrose: This forum gives lots of cookies, but I don't think those are the ones you mean.

And well, this isn't *my* forum, I'm just lucky enough that the good folks here let me stay around.

Welcome Danteryu! Yay, another video gamer/Battlelore fan among us! Because the world needs more bands that pay homage to Tolkien!

First post!

Officially this is my first post here. I've lurked for a long time, almost as much as I did on the official NW forums, but now they've changed and everything's rearranging anyway, I figure I'll take a shot at an actual post!

Name: Desi (short for Desiree)
age: 26 (I'll be 27 in Feb, I'm a Pisces)
Location: Kansas City area in Missouri, USA
hobbies: Music music music.. I used to play WoW (I was a BC kid), my life revolved around raid times. I haven't raided since Wrath. I love going to concerts, surfing the internet, video games, movies, etc. I'm pretty easy going. I also teach kids piano a few hours a week.
fave bands: Nightwish obviously, No Doubt (super mega fan since childhood), The Living End, Dawes.. My tastes seriously run the gamut. Used to be a ska nerd, now I'm getting into heavier sounds, and a lot more eclectic.
Religion: Atheist
Smoker: No, thank goodness I never started that habit. So much money!
drinker: Occasionally!
additional info: I have an 11 year old basset hound, although he's been living with my mother for the last year and a half. I miss him (even though I see him at least twice a week)! His name is Bumples.
My best friend and I got into Nightwish together. It's been a common bond for us for awhile. We're both fairly new fans (just after DPP came out)..

Yeah, just program our time machine to drop us off at ever future Nightwish show in the U.S. That would work for me.

And for fun, in-between, have the time machine take us to all the Tarja-era shows that we missed.

Right on, Jade. I've not had a soda in well over a year, and i consider caffeine to be a drug just like any other. It's generally unhealthy and to be avoided.

I have a feeling "new age mysticism" means Wicca, or possibly (though less likely) Golden Dawn. I've always had a keen interest in Thelema and the works of Crowley in general, though I've more or less moved away from it when I acknowledged a few years ago what I've always really been: an atheist (putting aside minor issues with the word itself). At any rate, welcome to the forums. :]

Congrats to you both; I'm a certified soda addict and I know I will never go to rehab.

Welcome, Jade!

Thanks Tramz and C
I don't drink sodas because I think they keep me awake. But Yeah I wouldn't be surprised if they do put something in it to make it addictive (lol)

By new age I meant I will believe in any sort of weirdness not just one thing, dream techniques, reincarnation, spirit guides, whatever.
If there is a book on it in the mind body spirit section then I will read it.

You don't have to explain; I've been a student of astrology since the age of 10.

Since you said you read books about spirit guides/reincarnation/etc., have you ever read the books of Sylvia Browne?

Happy solstice (for several days ago) in that case.

I don't think that I have read any books by her but its possible I have and don't remember it, it does look a bit familiar.
