hola everyone! i found this site a few months ago and recently decided that it would be good to register. i loved mscl when it was originally on and when mtv continued it. i guess it holds a special place in my heart because it was so relateable. even now i'm surprised at just how good it was. i was so fond of it that it was the sole reason i originally tuned into relativity and once and again (which of course i'm also obsessed with). let's see, for an introduction, i'll say that i am a 20yo college student majoring in english and history. i love to read, write, overobsess about really weird things, and create really inane inside jokes. good times... :D

Welcome Isabel & black coffee - I, too, began watching Relativity because of the MSCL connection, so you can imagine how disappointed I was (to put it mildly) when that was cancelled as well. It must be so easy to be a network exec - just throw darts at the wall to determine which shows will stay or go? :evil:

Hi, another newbie here. Not just to this forums, also to the series. For too long this serie was unknown for me, but I finally discovered it. I never saw it on television, and untill a month ago I never heard of it, but then I read some things about it on websites about Claire Danes (I just love Romeo and Juliet), and read some more about it on the internet, and downloaded some clips. It got me interested, and I decided to order the DVD box with all 19 episodes, and it totally blew me away. God I'm so amazed. Yesterday I watched the last episode, and well, I don't know how to feel now..I'm still a bit emotional of it.. I'll post the rest of my thoughts in the several topics in the 'The Show' forum.

Hellooo

Post by Emeralduk » Aug 14th 2003, 8:25 pm

Hi everyone!
It's great to read these pages and find out that other people my age, and from the UK, have also recently discovered the show. I only bought the DVD set a few months ago, and before I saw it, I knew I'd love it, and I did. I only found this website a week ago too, so I thought I'd start posting, as I love MSCL so much (plus no one I know has seen the show, so I have no one to talk to about how great it is). :D

To give you some info on me:
Fav.shows: Buffy, MSCL, Seinfeld, Cybill, Caroline in the City
Fav.films: Almost Famous, Breakfast Club, Heathers, Me Without You, Mallrats
Fav.music: Sarah McLachlan, Sundays, Tori Amos, Bree Sharp, Fleetwood Mac
Fav.food: Prawns, lettuce (it's good for you!), scampi, cheese-cake, white chocolate
Fav.things in general: taking photos, eating cereal, cats, snuggling up in bed with a good movie, milk, Jared Leto, the word "cookie", looking at the moon
Things I hate: spicy food, leather jackets, heavy metal music, spiders, my brother's laziness

I hope to make lots of MSCL friends here, take care all. :wink:

Do you feel like sometimes you're so glad that you found MSCL and love keeping it a secret, like it's your own special TV show that no one else around you (in your town) knows about? Ok maybe that's just me! But I like that no one I know has asked to borrow my DVDs to get into it. I feel like I discovered something truly different and wonderful, that I want to watch in 10 or 20 years time and remember how good it made me feel when I first started watching it. Sorry if I'm getting a little deep here! :Fade-color

That was very beautiful said, I can totally relate (again). I'd imagined once how it would be if it was a very popular show and people at school were telling about it. That was a horrible thought, since it's something special to me, and not just for all those "standard" people (girls) at school, treating it like a new Backstreet Boys CD or something.

Btw, hi alicia.

I'm not new here but I liked the idea of an intro thread. I've been coming to the forum off and on for years but haven't managed to post a whole lot. I've been living in the dark ages without my own internet access until recently. I started watching MSCL when it first aired on ABC. I remember seeing previews for it and being convinced that it held some truth that I would relate to. At the time I was looking for answers everywhere and was always sure I was just about to find them. I don't know that I found any answers in MSCL but I certainly was able to relate to it. I was 14 when I first saw it and turned 15 by the time Guns and Gossip aired. I was in the midst of my own obsessive doomed-to-heartbreak-love, shifts in friendship dynamics and my relationship with my mother was disturbingly similar (more disturbingly, it still sometimes seems that way today :shock: ). Throughout the years I've been tremendously entertained by MSCL and love introducing new friends to the show, it always makes me feel closer to them as though we are sharing a bit of our teenage years with each other even though we didn't know each other then. I'm not sure when I discovered MSCL.com, I started reading the fanfiction in the spring of '99 but I'm not sure if it had been incorporated onto this site yet but it was around that time anyway.
I guess now I spout out a few specific things about me.

first saw MSCL: ABC Pilot

How it impacted my life: probably made me more introspective by making me feel it was okay to be so self-obsessed

My greatest accomplishment in life so far: mmmph. I'm not feeling too accomplished these days so I'll settle for saying that I've finally made up my mind about what I want to do and am proud to be working my butt off to get back to school (english-history Bachelor of Arts)

My shoe size: 12

My favorite fruit:oranges (maybe)

My most guilty pleasure: occasional cigar (well that's the guiltiest answer I'll give to strangers)

sugary cereal: honey nut cheerios

My favorite cartoon character: zoidberg (but i always change my mind) clone joan of arc is pretty cool too

favorite disco song: I'll pass on the disco and go with Rufus Wainright's "Rebel Prince" but I'm fairly fickle about all of my favourites.
