Hi! My name is Rory, I'm 18, and I'm from Colorado. I've been lurking on here for the last few months and figured it was about time that I made an account and said hello. I've really been enjoying the Instagram lives that y'all have been doing- it's a lot of fun to get to see people from around the world all talking about Mika. Anyways, my need to understand what Mika was saying during the Radio Italia Ora thing won out over procrastination and social anxiety so here I am lol As for how I discovered Mika, it's kind of a long story. Like, four years ago, I was in I think my second year of learning French and I wanted to start listening to some French music. A blog post I saw recommended Mika, and so the first Mika song I ever heard was Elle Me Dit and the second was Boum Boum Boum (which, looking back on it is quite funny... 14 year old me listening to Boum Boum Boum and then reading the youtube comments... yeah). Then I heard a bunch of his other songs, and from there listened to him on and off. Fast forward to the beginning of quarantine, I was putting together a playlist and wanted to add some music I hadn't heard in while, so I went to Mika's page and saw that he had released a whole new album while I wasn't paying attention! I became absolutely obsessed with MNIMH, and then after falling down the rabbit hole of watching interviews and live shows, obsessed with Mika in general. So yeah, there you go, and it's nice to meet you all!
