Up coming shows in DC, NYC and NJ in the middle of August, St Louis is now
either August or Sept., and we'll hit the road at the end of Sept.
I am going to do an on-line chat on Sonic Net on July 11 for Mono Puff,
and am doing a tour diary over at that SpinOnLine thing on AOL under "Mono
Puff." Get your ten free hours, and stop in and say hello.
DID ANYBODY ELSE NOTICE FLANSBURGH JUST POSTED ABOUT THE TMBG ALBUM?
just wondering. calmly. very calmly.
AOL users can go to the "Boreds" at Keyword: Spin for proof. If you don't
have access to AOL, just take my word for it.

Yes, why wouldn't it be Flans? I thought it was common knowledge 'round
here that John 'n John are both on the 'net, and I'm sure read this
The only reason I'm surprised that he posted is that now he has to deal
(probably) with tons of posts from idiots...questions ranging from
"I likes They Might Be Giants" to "Can I send you a demo tape of my
band...blah, blah, blah..."
Actually,someone should have asked him...(ok, I'll do it now)
How come Nightgown of the Sullen Moon didn't make Lincoln, eh? ;)

really? since when? i've been reading a.m.tmbg since, oh, october 1994,
and back then it was said that neither of them were online, and the few
posts we got wth either of their names on them were silly forgeries. at
that point, word was that they knew the ng existed but they weren't
involved with it in any way. when did this change? i haven't seen
anything about either of them having any sort of internet or email
of course, message propagation has been perfectly horrid this last year or
so, perhaps it never reached my newsfeed.
oh well, whatever, in any case it's awfully neat to see flans here. i
hope this becomes a regular event.
I honestly doubt it.. on AOL Flans has mentioned several times that he's
going to use his "10 free hours" disk and sign off forever. It was a
nice thing to see, and I"m just hoping he gets "addicted" to the 'net
and sticks around. But I'm not counting on it.
the faboo opus mo
: the screen name monopuff seems to belong to mtsc...@students.uiuc.edu.
: (according to the page http://members.aol.com/monopuff/monopuff.html)
It's Flansburgh. The E mail address and screen name aren't
Mono Puff but Hello Club. The Mono Puff web site is indeed run
by that other guy, it's not even close to official, but
the Hello Club postings (as well as Dept PPFNP postings)
are the real deal.
whoops. nifty... i guess the faq will have to be updated. Hopefully
he wont trash the account after the ten free hours tho. :)
I just ordered Unsupervised from Rykodisc... I was sick
of going to record stores and having them look at me funny. Of course,
they do that anyway, but even more so when i ask for the Mono Puff disc.
awaiting the UPS truck,
just goes to show you cant beleive everything you hear... :)
still waiting for the darned UPS truck,

> That was probably not him, right?
Why wouldn't it be him? Flans is a cool guy, and he has been collecting
his free online hours. He also mentioned a few songs that I have
never heard of (Exquisite Dead Guy, uhh something else). Why is it so
hard to believe? Why why why?

It's kinda like bumping into him on the street or something. Just very
unexpected, that's all.
