Who are you?

riley540riley540 Bellingham WAPosts: 830
I notice a lot of names on here, a lot of regulars that often contribute to conversation, but none of us know each other. I’m just wondering who you all are?! I will start! 

My my name is Riley Doyle, I’m 22 and grew up in Anchorage Alaska. I loved my childhood. I started fishing when I was in 4th grade and salmon fish every summer. 
I grew up playing hockey for fun and was a goalie on my high school team for a year. I still love hockey and am a huge Washington Capitals fan. 
I went to a university for 3 semesters and decided I didn’t really like it. 
My passion is mountain biking. I started riding bikes in 6th grade and learned how to do “trials” riding. Basically where you maneuver yourself through obsticals while not puting your feet down. 

I then started riding mountain bikes a lot and competing in Alaska. ( very very amerure.) 

my girlfired wanted to go to go to school out of Alaska so I convinced her on Bellingham Washington. It’s one of the best biking towns in the US. I trained hard in 2016 and got my USA cycling pro license. I raced pro events in 2016 and 2017. 

This year im taking a step back and am going to focus more on riding for fun, and doing longer adventure rides. Racing is very expensive and exhausting. 

I got into Pearl Jam in 11th grade. I was going through some shit with my friends and a girl I was interested in. Long story. But I stumbled across Jeremy, and Black. It took off from there. In 12th grade my friend Cameron and I traveled to Spokane to see them and it was unreal. The next year I saved my pennies for Denver. And then I saved pennies for global citizen and again for MSG in 16. Best band ever. 

i proposed to my girlfriend of 4 years on October 7 2017 and we are getting married in Alaska in July. And then she’s hitting Seattle night 1 with me. I’m doing night 2 solo, and then my friend Cameron and I are driving to Montana to see that show. It’s shaping up to be a great year. 

For money, I buy and sell original vintage movie posters and advertising material. Mostly through eBay. I decided I hated working for people and am trying to hustle on my own!! Some stressful nights I tell you. 

I covered mostly everything! Who are you? I’m Riley

    Hello Riley
    What a nice thread, I’m Anna a 37 yr old PJ fan from Sweden. I grew up in a very small town, the youngest of four siblings. When I was younger I’d spend most of my time in the stable.
     I had my own horse there and fun people to spend time with. I like all kinds of sports but I’m not particularly good in any.
    I like music off course and would want to learn how to play piano and guitar better.
    I discovered PJ when Riot act came out, I fell in love with their music and quickly bought everything they had given out. :) I also became a member on this forum at that time.
    At first I only wrote poems but later I started to write in other parts of the forum as well.
    I think my life is kind of ordinary in a good way. 
    I have my own family now with two kids and it’s great. I enjoy to spend time with family and friends, travel etc. I live kind of close to a big city now.
    I work with dialysis it’s ok but I’m thinking about trying something new. 

    Best regards !

    My name is Mud
    Not to be confused with Bill or Jack or Pete or Dennis
    My name is mud and it's always been
    'Cause I'm the most boring sons-a-bitch you've ever seen
    I dress in blue-yes navy blue
    From head to toe I'm rather drab except my patent shoes

    I make 'em shine, well most the time
    'Cept today my feet are troddin' on by this friend of mine
    Six foort two and rude as hell
    I got to get him in the ground before he starts to smell

    My name is Mud
    My name is Mud,
    But call me Alowishus Devadander Abercrombie
    That's long for Mud, so I've been told
    Told that by this sonsabitch that lies before me bloated blue and cold

    I've got my pride, I drink my wine
    I'd drink the finest except I haven't earned a dime in several months
    Or were it years
    The breath on that fat bastard could bring any man to tears
    We had our words, a common spat
    So I kissed him upside the cranium with an aluminum baseball bat
    My name is Mud

    Riley do you have access to either a Shawshank or Big Lebowski original poster?  Might be interested...the prices I have seen are unreal given the questionable condition.

    I haven’t come across any in the big collections that I have bought. I know Shawshank sells for $150 - $600 depending on style and condition. It’s one of my favorite movies! 
    I have big tubes full of rolled 90s Posters I’ve never been through. I will start getting into them soon! And let you know if I find any.

    I'm Brian Lux, lead guitar player for the most famous unknown band on earth, The Mismatched Plaids aka "Bad Plaid".  The other member of the band is is my wife.  She plays nothing but she does make me look better.  We only played one show with zero notes.  Take that, White Stripes!

    Here is the promo shot for that show:

    I'm Lou, 40(ugh, hate that) mum to two kids in the UK. Been a fan since '93.... I'm a physio rehabbing amputees (?physical therapist in US). I live in the countryside in the south of England. My loves are exploring the countryside with my dog, practising yoga and drinking red wine. Pre-kids i enjoyed travelling as often as i could, but now we dont do so much.. Making up for it this summer with solo trips to euro and Seattle shows. That's pretty much me. 
  • F Me In The BrainF Me In The Brain this knows everybody from other commetsPosts: 12,575
    Not to be confused with Loo.  ;)
    That is awesome that you are doing the solo trips.  My wife would kill me if I went trans-atlantic w/o her!
