Hello there! I'm Karen, your quasi-average High School student. I like pink hair, Hufflepuffs, Speech (specifically Extemp), activism, and of course, TMBG. I discovered them fairly recently from an IndieFeed Podcast (which in turn I discovered thanks to an awesome friend) episode released a bit after The Else, featuring Take Out The Trash. Since then, I have developed quite an obsession. Also, I'm a huge news junkie, liberal but most certainly open-minded, so feel free to talk!

Random TMBG Stuff
I sadly admit that...
I have so far never been to a TMBG concert. That time they came to Northampton, I felt I had to stay home because my grandfather at that time was very sick, and Northampton is about a 2 hour drive from the metro Boston area. Also, I'm your typical stereotypical Asian and worry about my grades a lot.
Also, I haven't purchased Long Tall Weekend or Mink Car. I've listened to several tracks one way or another, which makes me feel pretty guilty inside.
I proudly boast that...
I have been to the high school of John and John. As a member of my High School (Newton South) Speech Team which in turn is a member of the Massachusetts Forensic League along with Lincoln-Sudbury Regional High School, I attended the annual Lincoln-Sudbury Regional High School Tournament. Granted, the school had been rebuilt since John and John went there, but I was still pretty giddy. Yay?
