hi everybody! i actually discovered john maus through this site of all things. i was actually scouring the web for positive reviews of the latest ariel pink lp, because a lot of websites were trashing him (i discovered him through a random buy at a record shop, i bought mature themes because i like the cover), and by chance i stumbled upon the discussion about pom pom. after looking through his section of the site, i began to wonder who john maus was, so i logged onto youtube, and by chance one of his songs was in the recommended videos section. it was rights for gays, which i loved(i seem to be rather alone in that opinion) and on a mad impulse, i listened to a good portion of love is real. i ended up buying all of his albums that i could find, and have been listening to them for a while now. i've actually begun seeking out vinyls of his albums (all of them, i just love me some coloured vinyl), so my mania is still in a rather embryonic form. the only other thing i can note is that i'm probably the youngest user of the forums, and that i've got quite the penchant for rambling.
peace all, and hope to see you soon
Welcome, Mausist, and best of luck with the vinyl collecting! I had the same compulsion and it only took me about a year to get every limited edition Maus record. I have four versions of We Must Become the Pitiless Censors of Ourselves alone.
