Finally! Someone from North Dakota! Welcome to the site and org. North Dakota holds the distinction, along with Alaska as the only 2 states we haven't visited and done a Just Plain Folks event in. Perhaps later in 2009 you can help us set up our first ever in the state and we can check that one off finally from the list!

Stick around,

Brian

Tyler,

Welcome to the site. Will look forward to your participation.

I used to work with a young lady from Fargo. that was years ago. But i still remember her telling me how cold the winetrs were and how the wind would cut right through you.

Hope you enjoy your time here!

Thanks to all of you. and yes the winters are terribly windy and cold, but its more time to spend indoors with a guitar i guess. Steve, I spend quite a bit of time down in Minneapolis when I need some "city life" haha.

Hey Tyler,
Big hello from Tasmania Australia from a young-at-heart oldie!

I haven't been here that long myself but it's VERY friendly and extremely informative. I've learnt so much it makes my head spin - and I've worked in this industry a long time!

My tip is that this place works best if you're prepared to get talking too. People might disagree with your point of view but they'll respect you for saying your piece. Like we say in AU 'have a go ya mug'!

Oh and the sun is shining and it's almost summer - just thought I'd rub it in for all you Northerners!!!

Welcome Tyler:

Glad to have you with us. Man, it's cold in Fargo. I've never been there but a publisher I correspond with every now and then used to tell me about your winters. Stay warm and have at least one extra ration of turkey today. Happy Thanksgiving.

Hey Tyler! I'm brand new to this website too. I've read lots of good stuff so far. I actually have spent quite a bit of time in both Fargo and Minot North Dakota also Moorhead, MN. Are you involved in the music scene out that way at all?

I'd really like to hear some of your tunes!

I used to be very involved in the punk scene about 4 years ago all over ND and MN. I was in a band called Thrive on Apathy. Now I do a lot more sitting alone and playing stuff a lot more mellow, haha. Im going to school in moorhead at the moment, but planning on getting out of this area within a few years. The "scene" around here is mostly metal/hardcore stuff thats not my thing.

Welcome tyler to JPF!My songs are way back in the pages on Lyric Feedback forum and Lyric Feedback Forum 3.AJ


Life was once a beautiful thing when we were able to live it.Love is such a beautiful thing when we are able to give it.Time alas has no meaning when there is no time but it takes but a moment for one to be so kind
