    Well, I'm new to the boards, I'm 15 and have been working in technical theater since I was eleven. I've never really had any training, but I've learned alot from books and stuff.
    I think this board is going to be my new favorite place on the internet.

    Let me throw in my welcome to Controlbooth.

    We do indeed like questions, and as was said in another post not so long ago, the only stupid question is the unasked one...

    Sorry Van, but that does not make a bit of sense... I must be too young, or is it that cultural difference thing again? [Sorry, I just had to tale the bait;)]

    It's an old Jerry Lee Lewis song called the "Tupelo Mississippi Flash" It's about a hick kid that walks into a agent and presents himself as the Tupelo Ms. Flash, The agent thinks he's a nut and doesn't listen to him next week the kid is number one on the charts and the agent is driving his bus.

    "He said, "Son, My name is Beauregard Rippey. I come to you from tupelo, Missisisippi. I write songs and I sing like a bird. I play the guitar like you aint never heard, Back home they call me the Tupelo Mississippi Flash."
    Really fun song, Lewis had a lot of great hits, most notably "Great Balls of Fire". Anybody here know where he got the nickname "Killer" ? ​

    Sorry Van but I'm not REALLY enough to know the answer however, my dad was a fan and I grew up listening to his Jerry Lee 8 track in the old station wagon. So I think I actually do know why... I think it's because of how hard he pounded on the piano.

    I like the fact that he is Jimmy Swaggart's cousin. What a weird family reunion that would be.
