I am on here sifting through the posts regularly, looking for any news updates on my favourite band.... but I am sometimes curious about the persons behind a posts. What is a typical Melvins fan like? What do they do? What age are they? Do they know other Melvins fans where they live (of physical form - on here not included) ? Where do they live? So I thought I'd start a post/questionnaire with the hope that you all could write a little about yourselves and what makes you tick as a No. 1 Melvins fan. Please be honest.. this could be interesting.

P.s  Just cut and paste ... and delete my answers for your own.
