Introduce yourself

Jamirotalk » Feb 15 '18
Hey everyone,

we probably know each other through the old jamirotalk forums, from Facebook or other sites... but we also have newbies here and the Jamily is growing, so it would be nice if everyone could just drops a few lines about her-/himself here so we know who is around.


Thanks! kissing_heart

Ok, so I am going to start...


My name is Meike, everyone here calls me CosmicMouse or just Mouse. I am 44 years old, am married and have 3 kids (18, 14 and 8 years old).

I am listening to Jamiroquai since 1993, but am following the band on the internet since about 2000/2001 and opend my own international fan forum in February 2002. Jamirotalk was growing and growing, I have made loads of friends through my community. I once counted and remember that I have met over 50 jamirotalkers since I opend the forums. But it must be meanwhile a lot more, as I stopped counting at some point, years ago.


Jamirotalk had been very active years ago. We made a lot of fan-meetings, the front-rows were crowded with jamirotalk members at every gig. With this new upgrade I want to reactivate jamirotalk. This upgrade was long overdue and I am happy that I finally made it.


I hope we will have a lot of fun here and I can't wait to meet lots of you for real at the next concerts!


On the pic you see me, my husband Miran, my kids Mika, Marja and Marlin and on the right Marlin's girlfriend Lisa.

WHAT IS UP JAMILY!

How time goes by! Well I am one of the O.G.s of the old JamiroTalk, I have started on it around 2001-2002 and contributed there for a LONG TIME, nearly 7-8 years before transitioning over to other social conduits (I.E. Reddit/Facebook/Twitter).

As for me, I'm a 41 American Jamiroquai fan who works in the food service industry currently, in addition to being a very passionate music fan/gamer and overly active moderator of the r/Jamiroquai Subreddit over on Reddit! I was a bit inactive in Jamiroquai support/promotions between their album "A Funk Odyssey/Rock Dust Light Star" but got instantly reinvigorated into the Online Jamily with their stellar recently released 2017 album "Automaton". I look forward to continuing to contribute where I can, from my Jamiroquai Minute Video series over on my my YouTube Channel all about Jamiroquai HERE to passing on the latest Jamiroquai-related news I come across on all my social media connections, I am most humbled and proud to contribute the NEW JamiroTalk+ when I can! Cheers my friends!

Sincerely,
JamiroFan2000

Hello everyone,

I'm not very good at this, but I'll give it a go.


My name is Kerstin and I'm a newbie on this site. I wasn't a member before, you can find me normally on facebook where I follow the one or the other group or site. I'm from Germany, live in the near of Cologne and I'm 43 years old.


The 1st CD I ever bought was THE RETURN OF THE SPACE COWBOY in 1994 because I heard the song in the radio and liked it. Beside that I liked Jay Kay of being so different and inadequat. But I wasn't a fan by that time. It still took a while. One day I saw a live gig of Jamiroquai on YouTube and that was it. I was completely flashed and excited. THAT was my music and it will always be. Listening to them is just making me happy.


Unfortunately I've never met Jay or one of the band members. So I've not much stories to tell or pictures to post and turn out more to be a silent follower. I've been to a few concerts, mostly with my partner who is no Jamiroquai fan. So I would like to get to know a few people that I can talk to or can meet on the one or the other concert eventually, because I think it makes more fun in a crowd than "alone". This year I'll go to see them in Stuttgart and I'm looking so forward to this.


Well, that's all I can say for now. Have a good time here.


Cheers. blushrelaxed

Hello Jamily!!!


My name is Dennis. My old handle on Jamirotalk before the update was blueclipse. I decided to change it up a bit. I DJ under this handle now so it seemed fitting. I am a 34 year old American fan from Las Vegas, NV in the United States. I was born in Detroit, MI. I've been a Jamiroquai fan since 1996 when I was introduced to the band like many others through the Traveling Without Moving album. I can still see my 13 year old self mesmerized by the Virtual Insanity video on Video Music Box. I was astonished....."what are these vibes......these sounds......those moves.......who is this singer......what is this band......I gotta see if there's some more of this".....and to my happiness and good fortune there was and it was just as awesome. I was hooked and a fan for life. I have followed the band heavily ever since and have greatly enjoyed their evolution as a band and have been eager to share my love of Jamiroquai with anyone I can. I've seen the band live only once in 2005 for the Dynamite tour but I will be seeing them again in 3 weeks with my sister in San Francisco and I am beyond excited.


My favorite Jamiroquai album is The Return of the Space Cowboy. My favorite Jamiroquai song is Stillness in Time. At the moment however I am really fond of Vitamin from the latest album. That song shot into my top 10 Jamiroquai songs QUICKLY.


Meike.......thank you from the bottom of my heart for keeping this forum going. Brent as well for what you do and for all the fans out there who keep the light on for this band. Thank you. Even during slower times Jamiroquai is still in our hearts and it's such an incredible fanbase. It's a testament to the band that they attract such warm and incredible people as fans.

Hello everyone! It is nice to see Meike's new project going on and have the opportunity of met you here again, together with other old school jamily members and newbies!

My jamiroquai story starts in 1996 and i become amazed by everything about this band. When internet started in our lives i become a very active jamiroquai fan. Collecting, talking, searching, going to concerts, jamily meetings etc.
Now I'm 35, have an almost 2 years old daughter and living my life quite out if the "fan life" but i still love jamiroquai and the jamily, so having this place, even if I don't use it a lot anymore makes me happy.
Hugs to all.

not to necropost here but i feel as if it's hard to avoid - but here we gooooo


i'm harmony, i'm sixteen and i was introduced to jamiroquai by my own prerogative... my sister (32) apparently liked them at my age as well but i had no idea. i've liked jamiroquai since i was about 10 or 11 (give or take) and while i'm not the most well-versed in the trivia/"lore" - i'd love to learn and that's why i joined! i have a soft spot for jay kay's auto collection because i'm a mechanic myself (and feel free to message me about that too - i LOVE cars). i also play bass!


outside of jamiroquai and jamiroquai-related things, i work in a greenhouse and (of course) am a high school student; i'm a section leader for my school's french horn section and i'm planning to head to diesel college! comet


seems as if i'm the only newbie in this thread, but it's cool. it's kind of funny how jamirotalk was started in my birth year... but still! let's all get along.

Hello peoples,

OlSumBitch » Apr 28 '18
I am Drew. I liked what I heard when I was introduced to Jamiroquai sometime in the mid 90s . To me it's like a mix of funk/jazz/disco what I call "ass shaking music" lol, so I have been grooving ever since. Some of my favorites are Slipin N Slidin, Blow Your Mind, Dynamite, Starchild, Falling, Little L, Soul Education... and on and on. I like a lot of styles of music; rock, metal, rap, classical, jazz, electronic...but my favorite is funk. Some other funky artists I like are Dogg Master, Zapp, Daft Punk, Parliament, P Funk Allstars, Wojtek Pilichowski and Victor Wooten. I live near Omaha Nebraska. I love humor and sarcasm and don't like when people are way to serious. I bust ass every day for Union Pacific to pay the bills. I have two people of my own , a son and daughter . I am addicted to fireworks and fun in general. Here are some pictures of; Steve Miller, fireworks, George Thorogood, ZZ Top, Bob Seger, some bunnies, Alice Cooper...or his head at least, a furry four legged freak named Cain and... me naked (under my clothes) ha ha got ya!

Hello!
It's me, Änder, the King of Luxembourg.
How are you party people?

I'm 40 years old and I was a member in the old forum from 2005 on, if I'm right. (Maybe Meike can check? grimacing )


I like Jamiroquai music from the "Too young to die" era on. I remember one day back in the early 90s, I was sitting in the living room with my sister and the song was broadcast on the telly. My sister noticed that I was digging that music, she told me so immediately.

"Too young to die" is until now one of my favourite Jamiroquai songs, if not my favourite, especially the extended version. Although, my favourite album all artists combined is "The Return of the Space Cowboy".


I had several opportunities to meet up with fellow Jamily members, of whom some have become good friends. It was MissP (aka Janice from Britain) who coined my nickname.

I also had the opportunity to chat with band members, especially Derrick McKenzie and Paul Turner. One time D gave me a cold can of beer from the tour bus when they performed their only gig yet here in Luxembourg. Nice gesture of him, beer is my favourite drink.

The best gig I've attended so far was one in the Paradiso in Amsterdam during the "Rock Dust Light Star" era, directly followed by the memorable one in Ahaus, Germany.

The last Jamiroquai concert I've been to was last year in Antwerp in Belgium, where I met up with two old Jamily members, Peggy from Belgium and Xavier from Luxembourg (originally from Britanny).


I listen to a lot of funk, jazz and soul. Currently I'm totally into Snarky Puppy. Never heard a band playing that well and smoothly together live. I'm also into other music, like Frank Zappa (although he had also a lot of jazz influences, especially with George Duke on the keyboards), Pink Floyd, Jethro Tull and even Ludwig van Beethoven. I also like to listen some times to songs of Jacques Brel and Georges Brassens.


My hobbies are vaping and writing in forums dedicated to vaping, listening to music and going to concerts (kinda obvious), driving around with my girlfriend in my convertible car when the sun shines and having beers with friends.

I also like to watch films, my favourite films are French comedies, ones with Bud Spencer and/or Terrence Hill, Takeshi Kitano, Emir Kusturica and Jim Jarmusch ones.

My all-time favourite though is the Godfather trilogy.

My favourite TV-show is South Park.


Another hobby I have is watching YouTube videos. My favourite channels are TJ Kirk (aka the Amazing Atheist) and the podcast he's part of (Deep Fat Fried), Secular Talk (with Kyle Kulinski), Jimmy Dore, Le joueur du grenier, Liquidhimmel (with Philgood), pbusardo, the Angry Video Game Nerd, H3H3 (with Ethan and Hila Klein) and Thunderfoot (aka Phil Mason).

I used to be very active on Facebook, but I got fed up with it. I can assure you: it had nothing to do with the Jamily crowd.

See you guys around!

Hi Everyone,


My name is Nicolas and I'm from Chile, South America. I can't remember when I joined Jamirotalk (formerly, my nick was gonna_dance), maybe in 2003, but to be here again bring me a lot of memories. I'm glad to see Jamirokaki posting on the forum again and found many other fans new and old (I'm sorry, time has passed) back in the site.


Who remember that beautiful time, when we used to trade bootlegs by postmail, when we keep the computer turned on to share some new cd to a friend? It was the time when I joined Jamirotalk, when I used to visit great sites as Frenchiroquai, Jamiroquai.com, mtey.com, ak's website, Amanda Website, J-Love among others. Such a great time.


I'm 33 years old now and I'm Occupational Therapist. I work in public mental health and keep moving between my hometown and my work out of the city.


The first time I hear Jamiroquai was in the mid 90s. I get crazy when I first hear Space Cowboy, and after all, I realized the first Jamiroquai song I ever heard was the David Morales Space Cowboy Remix (LOL). Actually, I bought the ROTSC album just to listen to that song. With the time, that album became one of my precious albums of my life. Later, I started collecting in 2001 and I have never stopped.


We keep regular contact with some great fans around and in Chile I'm part of a fans group who keep in contact since 2005. We have been together in every Jamiroquai concert held in Chile.


I also keep an Instagram Account called Jamirochile with Pablo, a great friend and fan.


That's my little story. It's good to see the Jamily back together again.

Peace!

I remember that, it was really nice to trade, I liked it a lot. Nowadays nobody is interested about it it seems. Most of classic websites are off, but you can find a lot of other new webs and social media sites to explore.

Hello everybody,


Older fans should remember me. Newer fans probably have no idea.


Still a fan, just not of the new(er) material even though there are some decent tunes. My collection was properly thinned a couple of years ago. I still keep some gems I simply cannot part with.


My favourite albums are:


EOPE/TROTSC (can't pick the best one, it depends on my mood).

TWM

SYNK


From AFO and onwards there are some decent tunes. But this AFO certainly was the beginning of the end for me. Put the jam back in Jamiroquai!


I probably won't be around much here other than to check in from time to time. But it's great to see some familiar faces! See you on Facebook. slight_smile

Hey Everybody

Space_Cowboy20 » Jun 10
My name is Kevin I am 19 years old and I have been a fan since I was little. I first discovered their music when I was little I heard their songs on the radio while I was at the back seat whilst my parents were driving. I remember hearing Little L, Seven Days In Sunny June, Feels Just Like It Should, You Give Me Something and many more. I instantly became a fan of Jamiroquai. The first Jamiroquai album I ever bought was A Funk Odyseey which is a great album. Then I started to collect their other albums and Live DVDs as well. My favourite Jamiroquai album is The Return Of The Space Cowboy.

Hello, I'm Eli, and I'm from Seattle . I haven't been familiar with Jamiroquai before Automaton released. Before that, I only knew about virtual insanity (that, and Feels Just Like It Should sounded eerily familiar). Then I listened to Space Cowboy, and I was hooked .I've been on here a little bit but I'm still new . I love collecting their live albums, but lately I haven't found any online or for sale. I'm always open to trading . I also like posting on r/Jamiroquai .


My favorite album is The Essential Live, and my favorite DVD is Live in Ahaus (thanks to mojogonlopoto)
