Hello! I am HotelDetectiveInTheFuture, but you can call me Oz. Happy Friday. How's it going? I am a guy who's just a little too obsessed with TMBG but has sadly NEVER seen them in concert. I am slowly building my collection of TMBG memorabilia. I like to make taglines among other things, here is a list of all the taglines I've made.
Apparently I have spent more than 7,320 minutes of my life listening to They Might Be Giants, and that's just their adult music!
My TMBG fandom story
My TMBG fandom story kind of comes in three parts. Part 1: When I was a wee young'un (about 3 or 4), my parents played me the Here Come The 123s DVD, and I absolutely fell in love with the songs, music videos, and of course, the Puppet Johns. They also played me Here Comes Science but admittedly I wasn't as in love with THAT album as much as the 123s album (I like Science more now.) So yeah, those were my two favourite albums for a very long time. Part 2: Cut to 2019, I had mainly forgotten about They Might Be Giants and Here Come the 123s etc, that is until I heard Crystal Fortress. You see, in the summer of 2019, I was on a huge Homestar Runner phase, and I stumbled upon Crystal Fortress. Then I was like: "Oh yeah, They Might Be Giants, I forgot about them!" That led me into a TMBG rabbit hole. I didn't know where to start with TMBG, but then I found this random TMBG Top 20 Songs list, and I checked out those songs. The list had a healthy mix of TMBG classics like Don't Let's Start, Ana Ng, Birdhouse In Your Soul, and also some obscure deep cuts like Mr. Klaw, Cowtown, and I'm All You Can Think About. Part Three: Then, in 2021, I went into an even deeper dive to prepare for BOOK and listened to every single album. And as a result They Might Be Giants became my new favourite band.
