HELLO THERE

Postby owen » Sun Apr 18, 2004 9:35 am

What a great idea to set up this forum
I have been a fan of Yello since one day in early 1985 when i walked into a small independant record store & it was playing 'Desire'.I bought the cassette of Stella' 2 minutes later.Infact for a few weeks i did not even know who Yello were or indeed what they looked like.As i heard more & more of their stuff
i became addicted to them.I also find them to be fascinating characters.

:D :D :D

It's unbelievable, but many people don't understand Yello-Music.

They say "ok, sounds good, but it's a little bit boring" or "Is that Kaufhausmusik?" (Backgroundmusic, played in shopping centers - how is the correct word?) or "cool Babytechno"

They are blind and doesn't see/hear the magic of Yello!

Unbelievable...

I think in english the word is either "Muzak" or "Elevator Music" :)
Which Yello is far from! :)

I'll piggyback onto Owen's Hello to also say Hi!

I've been a lurker since last August at the previous Yello message board (thanks to Jonathan!), so I should make myself official now that there is this cool new forum.

I'm approaching 39, been a fan since the 80's and my hook was Oh Yeah. My single largest (read obsessive) collection by any music artist is Yello, although I also like jazz, classic rock, 80's etc. Only Yello satisfies my musical cravings to the greatest extent.

My favorite song is "Of Course I'm Lying" and my least favorite is "I Love You".

That's it in a nutshell for now!

Hi,

I love "Elevator Music" or "lounge music" called in France. I think Yello have some tracks like that but it's not the good word for that for sure...

I really loved Yello from Solid Pleasure to Baby but the rest is not really the same magic even if you can reach the Yello touch in all tracks listened and if I do like them anyway.

Hey Max, you're so lucky to live in Berlin... 8) I went there some month ago with my girlfriend. We felt in love for that city and we want to come back again in some months. 1 week is not enough to see all you want and want to see again... I've taken about 500 photos and I've made a presentation on DVD with greatest shots (about 400 photos) added with some Yello tracks of course :)

Regards.

Yeah, a lot of places to visit and pass one moment or come back again... So great city. My photos of Berlin are not all on the web yet but those of the Egyptian Museum in Charlottenbourg are visible on http://www.gr3g.net/berlin/musee_egyptien . I've bookmarked your site, I like the idea, I think it can be really interesting for people who doesn't have other way to share but I would like to put them on my own site, so I will ... (when I'll have some time too :roll: ) I'll share !

Thanks, thanks, thanks... :o

Well, I'm using a SONY DSC-717F. It's time for me to buy a portable HD to shoot all I want without any frustrations :roll:

That's a good camera but now is out the new 828-F. Sony is making very nice cameras. But this piece isn't yet what I'm looking for... Let's wait and see ... You can see some other of my photos on the LOMO(GRAPHY.com) dedicated site. Direct link : http://www.lomohomes.com/Gr3g then PUBLIC ALBUMS. There are some of my Berlin shots, not the best but maybe some of the most creatives... Cool site (in general) BTW...

Awesome Lomo shot!

very impressed.

I wish there was a digital alternative. I hate messing with film. I know it's not the same but I'm lazy and don't want to spend money on it.

Well done Mac Daddy Julz.
You'll have your work cut out John mate it's going to be busy.
I know that i'll surley get the sack from work now, as i'll be spending far too much time here instead.
It feels like our Yello group from around the world has taken a step into the future, does this mean the end to the newslist?
Hey Greg mate nice site, nice artwork!
Congrats again mate.

It's about retouching for the most (haven't any LOMO for the moment) :oops: but no retouch on NEGATIVE ART album per ex :)
I really like the digital alternative for sure for the cheap cost of the shot... But in anycase your eye will determine the value of your act :)
