Hi! [18 Mar 2007|05:46pm]

[ mood | awake ]

I've been watching this community for aggges... but never joined til now so... 
Hi, I'm Emily. I just turned seventeen in January and I'm from Sydney, Australia.

Let me see... I've been a fan for about three years I guess (not real long I know, but whay can I say.). 
I love Johnny because I really enjoy his music, I find I can relate to alot of things he sings about it, which is pretty important. Also he was really so good, playing excellent guitar with so little technicality. He didn't care what anyone thought about him and I admire that. But I suppose the only thing he compromised for was drugs, which is sad.

I guess he's affected my life to a degree because before I discovered him (or any meaningful music for that matter), I was very bored and didn't really have much in the way of creative outlets.
In a way I adopted a sense of smug superiority when I got into Thunders which sounds awful, but it can make you feel good about yourself when you're kind of, you know, alone in a crowd so to speak. I guess I felt alienated from the others. So it kind of felt like, even though it wasn't a current thing, I liked some music and scene that no other kid in my whole school liked or knew about and consequently in a way I thought I was better than them.
Haha. I suppose it was a bit of a silly mindset in retrospect. 
: )
Anyway, excellent community, thanks for making it! 
There's a photo of JT at Max's.

BitTorrent users

Born to Lose (probably a documentary most of us have not seen, or maybe I'm just behind!) is available, for BitTorrent, so if you're familiar with BitTorrent, you need more people downloading it for it to go faster, and I thought this was the perfect place to ask because a lot of people have been wanting to see this documentary

Just google, BitTorrent, download the program

and then download the file here

We need more people to download so it can go faster :) (you can also look up the Don Letts infamous Punk Rock movie there)

Here is a picture of Johnny:

ok, I better write a little about myself and follow the rules so I don't get kicked out, so;
my name is rebecca, I'm (soon) 16 years old and I live in a small town called halmstad in sweden. I've been a fan mabey..3 years, it not very long but since I'm only 16 years old I think it's a good start ;)
however, there's certainly no one like johnny. he had such a killer-attitude and sure didn't care what any dorks said about him. he was just an eccentric person. like a cartoon ;D also a thing that means much to me is that he never sell-out.

so I read in the OC Weekly that the Johnny Thunder's play So Alone will be going for it's third run in July.
If anyone in the LA area would like to see the play that depicts the life of Johnny Thunders in all sleezey slutty junkie glory it will be held at:
Stages Theater
400 E.Commonwealth Ave.
It will be showing July.8- Aug.13 and the tickets are a mere 15 bucks.So for all of you out of towners,start scrimping yer pennies for a bus ticket.
A friend of mine had seen the play during it's last run in the year 2000 and says it's fantastic!It's really a must see.

I really wish that red_cherry_slut girl would quit posting and making it so nobody can comment, that sort of defeats the whole purpose of a community. Quit it.
