My parents bought No! for us when it came out. I was 6 at the time and have been hooked on the band since. My obsession really took off around 2008 when I was in middle school and started collecting all of the band’s albums.
Aside from TMBG I’m into collecting vinyl, CDs, cassettes, and 8-tracks from all types of artists. I also make art and can be found at www.ethanrosa.com or on Instagram @ethanalart. I’ve made covers of Spy and Road Movie to Berlin for the TMBS compilations on Bandcamp as well.
Everything below this point was written in middle school/high school but I wanna leave it as a time capsule for myself.
Favorite Bands: They Might Be Giants (obviously), The Beatles, XTC, Ok Go, Green Day, Screeching Weasel, Black Sheep, Beastie Boys, Bomb the Music Industry! etc...
Favorite Movies: Any of John Hughes' Brat Pack movies, anything Star Wars (other than the animated movie and the holiday special), anything by David Lynch, Pulp Fiction, Fargo
Other Favorite Things: Anime, Musical Instruments, Food
