The History of MT
Posted 03 January 2013 - 03:39 PM
When was MT started?
Who started it?
What was it like initially?
How and in what ways has MT changed over the years?
(Radiohead specific questions)
What was the initial reaction to In Rainbows around here?
What did people think of HTTT in its initial aftermath?
Did people view the pre-HTTT albums different back in the day?
To anyone who was here back then, what went on here when the band went silent for the better part of 2004-2005?
Also I realize we have that legendary threads thread up in here and it's pretty good but if anyone has any other neat stories/ memories they'd like to share, feel free to post them in this thread.

i guess it must have been fall 2001 right after the original MT went down and a temp forum was being hosted at revolve.spacecowgirl.nu (http://web.archive.o...m/mt_beerb.html). that was the peak of my RH fandom i guess. i only started posting there bc my friend did but clearly he got a life at some point in 2002 and i just kept postin'.

i remember the opinion of IR being pretty positive. probably more talk about the influx of new members.
and during the band's downtime it was pretty much business as usual? GRT critiqued and gushed. everywhere else talked amongst themselves.
a history of MT would be a good excuse to reminisce over some of the board's highs and lows, and there's been a LOT of those. it's relatively drama free these days but it used to be pretty interesting once upon a time. like a soap opera.
and there was even that Radiohead Soap Opera thread which was amazing.
