  1. Thanks, but they came with the upgrade -- I didn't have to do anything special Also, I see that our old smileys are still there, too -- you just have to scroll down the list a bit to find them.

    Where in the World Are You?

    Sure Nancy, feel free to add me on other social media. And I think you mean 2015, not 2005 -- and yes, I was there! 👍🏻 Perhaps we even spoke? I seem to recall meeting people who drove quite a distance to get there. In any case, I'm sure Mika will come back to the States eventually. Maybe not Michigan -- you might have to drive to see him again -- but NY and LA for sure.
  3. Hey all! Wanted to let you all know that we have just upgraded to the latest version of the software this forum uses. So far, everything seems to have gone smoothly. Because it was a fairly big upgrade, some processes are still working in the background, so it may take a day or two for everything to be 100% available. You may notice a few changes, though, and this would be the thread to write to looking for help! One thing you may notice immediately is that our smileys have changed. They now appear to be very similar to the emojis you probably use on your phone. The old shortcuts that you might have been using will probably not work any more, you'll just have to select them from the tool bar above the text box. As I find other things that may be of use to you, I'll post about them here, too! Have fun exploring

    Where in the World Are You?

    Hi Nancy! And welcome! I'm also in the US, in the DC area. We don't have a US fan club -- I consider this my Mika "home." There is a thread here for US fans, but it hasn't been very active... mostly because Mika hasn't been here in US for nearly three years, I guess. But there are still plenty of us around. You may want to repost your introduction over in the Introductions thread, where I'm sure you'll get a very warm and international welcome!

  6. I know this is straying from the original topic a bit, but, Eriko, isn't this photo from that Polish recording session? "Children" by Dai Fujikura for boy soprano and orchestra Lutoslawski Radio Concert Hall in Warsaw (1998) performed by The Polish Radio Orchestra, Mica Penniman (boy soprano), Zsolt Hamar (conductor) http://brahms.ircam.fr/works/work/21887/

    Come contattare Mika per posta normale

    Ciao Catecate, Prego, leggi questo per trovare il miglior modo da contattare Mika.
  8. Yes, they had a string of hits here. This was their first, and I think they're biggest. They also did Muskrat Love, Do That To Me One More Time, Shop Around... My little sister used to love them. They're divorced now.

    Comprehensive Lyrics

    It's My House (We're talking about this song HERE.) Don't even try to tempt me with the keys to the Taj Mahal Or the Leaning Tower of Pisa 'cause I heard it's about to fall There ain't no pyramids or palaces for me Already got a home, it's the only place I need It might be big, it might be small Ain't no paintings on the wall And the bed might not be long enough The neighbors want us all to leave And they're callin' the police They'd kick us out if they were strong enough It's my house 'Cause my house Is your house My heart is too 'Cause my house Is your house There's room for you Ain't no walls you could keep my heart in Ain't no walls I won't lock you out It's my house You don't need a flying pigeon 'cause you already know the way You can bring your best friend with you and I'd love to have you stay We can make some music, yeah, we can watch the sun go down This house is yours and mine, you can always come around It might be big, it might be small Ain't no paintings on the wall And the bed might not be long enough The neighbors want us all to leave And they're callin' the police They'd kick us out if they were strong enough 'Cause my house Is your house My heart is too 'Cause my house Is your house There's room for you Ain't no walls you could keep my heart in Ain't no walls I won't lock you out It's my house

    MFC Anthem?

    Ha! Imagine my surprise at seeing this old thread resurrected! And imagine my embarrassment after I read over those lyrics! Did I really write that? Oh, I see, it was just after seeing Mika two nights in a row, way back in 2012. A time I fondly look back on now with tears, because it's been nearly two years since I've seen him. I can tell you that two years without seeing him is not as inspirational as seeing him two nights in a row.
  12. Thanks for posting, krysady! Maybe we need to cross-post it to the Pilot pens thread?

    Mika's collaboration with Pilot!

    Wow! The mailing list competition is finally out! The prize is a boxed set of ALL 24 pens -- this complete set boxed like this is not available to buy in stores!

    Hello Everyone!

    Hi Ronnie! And welcome! Another US fan here -- there are more of us than you might imagine! Glad you found us and we'll look forward to getting to know you better! And maybe we'll even get to see you at a gig, once Mika releases his next album!

    Mika's collaboration with Pilot!

    For those of us in the US, I wrote to Pilot Pens US directly to find out about availability, got this reply this morning: "Thank you for your recent email message. We appreciate the opportunity to address your inquiry. The Mika pens are not available in the USA. Each Pilot affiliate has a specific list of products available to them and the residents of their marketing area and they cannot sell outside of their marketing area. Regrettably we are unable to provide purchasing assistance for this pen. Once again, thank you for the opportunity to address your inquiry." So it looks like we'll have to get creative and rely on others in other countries, as some of you have already done. Also, in addition to the competition that Mika's having on his mailing list, the MFC is supposed to get several boxed sets to give away, so watch for more details here -- hopefully we can make a few fans happy!
