Hi there. I’m Berlin Kofoed (ie @SilentHalls or makingyourowndeathbed.tumblr.com). I’m 24 years old, I live in Seattle, WA, and I have a hard time making normal faces in pictures.
It’s really a problem.
Anyway, hello! I am the person behind @STastronautalis and this Tumblr page. I’ve been working behind the scenes (sort of) on the Street Team for months now, and I decided that I might introduce myself. I play drums (for 15 years now), I work at a music shop, and I go to a different concert pretty much every other week. Or at least, that’s what it feels like right now.
Since August, Astronautalis has been a huge part of my life. I started working with bands (promoting, running the merch table, drum repairs, whatever they needed) when I was 14 for a local band by the name of Mountain Con (since broken up). I loved it, but stopped just after graduating high school because I wanted to pursue other things. Well, Astronautalis has done nothing but revamp my interest, and everyone is responding so well! I mean, I am floored by you guys all the time. I’ve never seen such a ravenous bunch of fans that love this music so much.
I listen to a variety of things, and it changes all the time. I didn’t listen to much rap until Astronautalis (I liked Eminem, but really, that was all). Now my iPod is a bit more diverse. He has sparked my musical interest again!
Jord Plourde (@JordPlourde) is my right hand man in this. He doesn’t run the Twitter page, but he posts for the team just as often. We talk on an almost daily basis about new ideas, old ideas, and just about everything we can think of. I go to him for everything, because he is amazing and creative.
Welcome to the team, all of you crazy Trouble Hunters! It’s nice to meet you!
