hello, may i introduce myself...

i am Kirsten, nickname "McForce".
what else is there to say? i'm 26yrs old, now living approx. 200metres behind the border on the french side: pays de bitche, departement moselle, region lorraine, france, europe, earth.
i'v started studying applied computer sience at the university of kaiserslautern, but then changed to business economics.

this www-site is mainly dedicated to my hobby: music, especially bob dylan... though i like many styles of music, from jazz to blues, singer/songwriter, german songwiters and french chansons.

How I came to Dylan? to make a long story brief: I saw a review about a Dylan concert in a German music magazine and quickly decided that I had to go to one of the upcoming concerts in Europe (I didn't own any dylan album at that time... the only song I knew was the Peter, Paul & Mary version of "Blowin' In The Wind", which is IMO absolutely horrible). So I went to my first Bob show in gotha back in 1994... meanwhile I've visited many more concerts:
1995 stuttgart, 1996 frankfurt & mannheim, 2001 schwäbisch gmünd & bad reichenhall, 2002 hamburg, frankfurt, münchen, innsbruck & nuremberg, 2003 the two club-concerts in hamburg, munich, frankfurt and 2004 bonn & worms. in 2005 it was wetzlar and munich.

also have an account on 'myspace': http://profile.myspace.com/63714109

i'm trying to remember the 'tour schedule of my life' ;-) and then maybe fill it with stories & ticket-scans. unfortunately i can't fill all the gaps...
