Hi

Post by tomkoers » Sun Jun 05, 2005 9:24 am

My name is Tom, and I'm from The Netherlands (Hengelo).
I'm a reborn Christian, and I love music in which the Lord is being uplifted.
Glass Hammer is since last year my favourite among others like Neal Morse, Iona and Delirious.


Greetings,
Tom

Welcome to the forum! You'll meet many people here - Christian and non-Christian - both with a love for GH in common. (humbling I must admit). They're also kinda crazy so be careful who you talk to. But welcome!
God bless.

Stay away from me, I got my own 'Beware of youngest littel squirt on the forum" sign. Welcome to the forums, anyway.

Welcome, Tom.

I like Iona, too. The first time I listend to Kells Opening Theme, I was literally blown away! Their music, just like Glass Hammer's, is always inspring to listen to. Anyway, let's wait for The Inconsolable Secret.

I'm Tom and I live in New Jersey. Yeah, I had to travel long and far the see Glass Hammer at Nearfest 2003! In fact I've been to every Nearfest, and am looking forward to meeting GH members again.

Age: 37

Single, always looking... :cry:
No children but have 4 wonderful neices

Job: CSR for American Standard

First GH Album: On to Evermore back when it was new. I read about GH back in 97 thanks to an article in Progression. I discovered the "underground" prog scene just a few short months before then.

Favorite GH album: Shadowlands -I simply adore the female vocals on this. Run Lisette is one of the best songs I've heard in the past 5 years.

First prog album I ever heard: Kansas -Leftoverture, early 1977, and I was all of 9. I'm a major fan of Dream Theater -all their albums plus 14 concerts, Rush all their albums plus -10 concerts, along with bands like Yes, Genesis, ELP, the Beatles, Tangerine Dream, King's X, Ayreon, Flower Kings, Joe Satriani, Ars Nova and countless others...

Music other than prog:
Classical, Jazz (no smooth jazz please! :x ), metal, bagpipes

Outside interests:
Sports, mainly baseball -Yankees, and Football -Giants
Movies -Sci-Fi and fantasy, historical epics, action
Monty Python :lol: :lol: :lol:
Politics -especially talk radio
Food -Italian, Mexican, German
Beer -Guiness Stoudt and many others
Cigars
Las Vegas -Have not been there in 4 years and its killing me!
:evil:
Stock Market
Charity work for MDA
And now for something completly different...

Really? :oops: :oops: :oops: That's a first! Not that it bothers me, but what gave you that idea? I'm one of those "manly" men. My favorite vegetable is steak. I only watch movies where things blow up and women wear not very much. Well, not exactly a hard rule, but certainly no chick flicks. I smoke cigars. OK, that last one is about the most manly thing I do, I'm so pathetic! I've never even changed a tire or my oil.

It's the fluffy kitten avatar, Moose. Quick! Change it to a Rottweiler or something!

FWIW I always had you pegged as a bloke :)

Actually, I think it was the avatar that made me think that. I guess for some reason I associate cats with females . . . :?

That kitten is well armed! I wouldn't think the sniper kitty would be a good choice for a woman. But I did find out about that picture thanks to a woman at work.
