Go ahead... this should be fun

You know you are a Cure fan when...

... Your nickname on the internet is the name of a cure song.
... You have two fishes one named Harold and the other one Joe.
... When you wake up you listen to doing the unstuck.
... It is 10:15 on a Saturday night and you just want to go sit in the kitchen sink
... You hear Friday I am in Love on the radio and you crank up the radio but you tell yourself that the DJ is stupid because it is only Monday.
... You start a thread on the internet to see if you are the only one with sick idea.

When hearing the word 'cure' in everyday conversation instantly makes you think of the band, not the proper context.

Same with songs and lyrics too.

... Your nickname on the internet is the name of a cure song.
well, close enough i guess...

... You have two fishes one named Harold and the other one Joe.
i have no pets and i really don't want to have any.

... When you wake up you listen to doing the unstuck.
definitely not. most times i don't want to listen to anything at all first thing in the morning. but in case i do, then it's more likely to be something in the lines of the following:
nirvana: breed (on repeat)
nin: wish/last (or both on repeat)
or some electro/industrial-ish noise...

i very rarely listen to the cure in the morning. if i listen to something i listen to something that'd help to punch my stupid ass awake.


... It is 10:15 on a Saturday night and you just want to go sit in the kitchen sink

maybe i end up doing it but it surely isn't in the top of my want list as my favorite saturday night pastime so...

... You hear Friday I am in Love on the radio and you crank up the radio but you tell yourself that the DJ is stupid because it is only Monday.

hard to say because i never hear it on the radio because they never play the cure in radio around here.

i wonder if it means i'm not a fan then?  :?

Whenever I hear, "Trying to find the cure..." I always point to Robert T-Shirt and say, "Found 'em!"

Guess you have to be there for it to be funny...

Anyway, you think comparing The Cure to The Cult is an insult...this one girl thought that Robert Smith on my shirt was Boy George!!!

XD! I'd never be caught wearing a Boy George T-Shirt...he's just too weird, and not in a cool way...

Anyway, you know you're a Cure fan when the name "Charlotte" makes you think of a church...it does for me.

You know you are a Cure fan when..

--Someone types "LOL" in chat and you wonder why the are talking about Tolhurst.
--You have multiple copies of several albums.
--You have a photo of a certian member of the group decorating your keychain. Can't leave home without him. ;)  (Well, for me atleast.)



Um, I never had any fish named Harold or Joe, but I did have a parakeet named Simon Jonothan Gallup, Jr. :-D

I TOTALLY AGREE WITH THE LOL THING!

I'm not really into the whole internet lingo, so when people say, "Lol!" I always add the "Tolhurst" mentally...

You know that you're a Cure fan when you purposely look for sneakers twice your size (because of Robert's awesomely big sneaker...well, at least I do...)

You know you're a Cure fan whenthe idea of lipstick on men seems perfectly normal to you...

You know you're a Cure fan when listening to The Smiths makes you red with rage...

You know you're a Cure fan when you really like the cure...duh...

Okay, obviously these only apply to me...

Indeed, or sometimes add it in conversation to confuse people.  8)

I like The Smiths......  :D

am i not a proper fan now?  ;) Just kidding, i couldnt care less really.

Ive never really got that Curefans Vs. Smithsfans thing, just because Robert and Morrissey didnt like each others output in the 80s it hardly means i should follow suit, simply as my 'duty as a loyal fan'.... Hey, if you like what you hear, thats all that matters in the end right?  :smth020

You know you're a Cure fan when you can't help humming "Friday I'm In Love" at the end of the week.

You know you're a Cure fan when the code ": smth023" makes you think of Robert Smith...everytime I click that smiley and that code comes up, I always think it says "Smith"!

You know you're a Cure fan when you start eating cinderblocks...okay I'm all out of ideas obviously... ;)

You know when you're a Curefan when..............

You play their music in the car everywhere you go despite children pleading for mercy ( I know what's best for them)
You can't get going for the day unless you have your black eyeliner on.
Your heart skips a beat when you hear a snippet of a song on the telly or the radio or anywhere for that matter.
A cure song is on your mobile phone alarm to wake you up each morning.
Not for everyone but for me anyway, you get goosebumps everytime you hear Roberts voice singing or even just seeing him.

Yeah yeah I know soppy soppy but........... hey I'm entitled to a little bit of hearts a flutter. Can honestly say even after all these years Mr Smith is still gorgeous. ;)

Post by: Carnage Visor on September 08, 2007, 16:24:26
Yes, I do get all excited whenever a snippet of a Cure song comes on the radio, like in a segment on the 80s, they'll play a snippet of Lovesong or something...

And I agree with everything else you said.

your family and friends think you are a little strange
your mother say to you that the Cure isn't something for you, because you are weak at heart
when you say you are a Cure fan the people look at you like you are from another planet
when it's raining you think of the Disintegration album

Also you know youre a Cure fan when you listen to other bands and you think the singer sounds a bit like Robert or instantly think they're ripping off The Cure when they probably arent  ;)

i have a confession to make:

in the very beginning of my "internet life" (you know "once upon a time, in a galaxy far far away...") i actually didn't get this 'LOL' thing at all. i kept wondering why people were constantly referring to mr. tolhurst on every cure board in all kinds of situations that weren't even referring to him, not even remotedly. and then i got even more confused when i noticed that a lot of non-cure people in all kinds of non-cure internet environments kept doing it too.  :smth017
honestly, i took me a good while to figure it out  :oops:
but i can defend myself by saying that after all, i'm not an english speaker by birth and there certainly isn't any similar abbreviation in finnish language that could have pointed me the direction.
and please note that this really happened a long time ago - really.

The Cure is definately my favorite.
I have "At Night" as my ringtone, it's a realtone as well.

It goes:
"Unaware of the changes at night. At night." and then the music kicks in for a while.

Some bands may compare, but only one song by them. The Cure is the only band where I can love an entire album. Other bands, I have to pick and choose carefully what song from what album, because some of them suck!

I wish our radio stations would play some of those songs.  The only ones that get air time maybe once or twice a month is Friday I'm In Love, or Just Like Heaven.  Everyone knows I am fan at work, because when I hear those, that is the only time I actually turn my radio on in my cube as load as I dare, or they are the only CD's I play.

You know you are a fan when you purchase your first pair of tix, and you bawl so hard, and are gasping for breath, you get asked "who died"...

Co-Workers  :smth011

Actually one of my co-workers was a big fan of the band in the 80's but hasn't really listened to their stuff in years.  He kept complaining that he couldn't stand Robert's voice anymore but he eventually gave in!   Now he blames me with his current obsession with the band!  I love it!!!  :rocker

Actually one of my co-workers was a big fan of the band in the 80's but hasn't really listened to their stuff in years.  He kept complaining that he couldn't stand Robert's voice anymore but he eventually gave in!   Now he blames me with his current obsession with the band!  I love it!!!  :rocker


Spread the sound like Gospel... It will have non-believers begging for more!! :rocker

Did that...although by the end of the night I ended up looking more like an emo girl...which I am neither...oh well, at least I looked good in the leggings and giant boots. Had lots of nasty words hurled at me too about my sexuality...as if I can't be straight and dress up on Halloween? How is that any different than dressing up as a football star? It's called dressing up for a reason!!!

Strangely enough, I have just SEVENTEEN SECONDS, JAPANESE WHISPERS, PORNOGRAPHY, and THREE IMAGINARY BOYS on mine, but they're like full albums, so I can drift off into a music coma while listening to them. Those albums really run smoothly. The songs change with little notice, and they're all good songs. I don't think either contains a weak song (aside from THREE IMAGINARY BOYS's songs like "Meathook", "Foxy Lady", and another one I can't think of now)

I have Christian Death, Lydia Lunch, The Cult, but a very little amount of The Cure.

I think it's because I'm afraid I'll get tired of certain songs if I overindulge in them. And I wouldn't want that!!! Aaaaaah!  :shock:

I have convinced my friend via Instant Messaging to download FAITH, PORNOGRAPHY, THREE IMAGINARY BOYS, and SEVENTEEN SECONDS. Yesterday I suggested THE TOP, since he seemed to like "Give Me It" and "Shake Dog Shake".

Soon enough, I shall have more followers!

When you have a whole external hard drive of shows,  and it's full

when you have sat through the Judge Dredd movie,  just to catch Dredd Song at the credits (oh boy,  that wasn't their best)

ditto for The Crow movie,  to hear Burn rocked inthe movie theater!

when you had cassettes (yes tapes) of A Forest versions live,  and know how many "again and again"s will come each time!

when you have read Charlote Sometimes, The Cockatoos, The Gormenghast trilogy, A Perfect Day for Bananafish, Les Enfants Terribles, The Stranger...

when you check out who is Banco De Gaia the week you buy WMS!!

when you work out to Mixed Up and your other 200 remixes you've collected (even the bad Gone! ones)

when you cling to every forum daily, trying to recapture the magic of 1989, knowing you probably never will -  (inspire in me the desire in me)

when you've secretly at least once attempted: pushing your face,  holding my breath until I shake, put your hands in the sky,  just looking at the floor, and throw your foot away (ok not the last one  ;)  )while listening to the songs

i had a bit similar experience the other day as i quickly popped in this second-hand cloths store and wasn't even going to hang around for more than 2 minutes, but they were playing 'a forest' on the store PA and i was so amazed by this (because it's pretty rare around here, really) that i kept loitering around, just to hear the song in its entirity because i fund it really annoying to leave in mid-song. then i realized they were actually playing the greatest hits cd and i kept loitering around a bit more (not because i couldn't hear those songs at home... but just because it felt kind of relaxing and comforting, in the middle of a busy day, to have a good doze of the cure).
in the end i even ended up buying a pair of army pants - although i had promised myself for not to buy anything that day. doh!


anyway, most times i think the much better "fan indicator" for myself is the fact that there is actually a LOT in the cure that actually pretty much annoys me these days and i find that i'm easily irritated by a lot of things about them... some things about them drive me pretty mad, actually.
- but even then i still go and read the news about them nonetheless...

love this question...

you know you are a cure fan when you get your thrash-metal-fan-brother to admit that he likes Homesick.  :smth023

you know you are a cure fan when a scary, gangsta lookin' crowd pulls up next to u in a lowered POS, blasting rap, yet instead of rolling the windows up, you blast Close to Me and continue to stare them down until the light turns green.  :shock:

you know you are a cure fan when the person u r dating, who used to be a cure fan, is now sick and tired of them because of how obsessed u r with the band.  :!:

you know you are are a cure fan when u not only think of wedding songs to hear, but songs you would want to hear while lying on your death bed, many years from now.

Ive never really got that Curefans Vs. Smithsfans thing, just because Robert and Morrissey didnt like each others output in the 80s it hardly means i should follow suit, simply as my 'duty as a loyal fan'.... Hey, if you like what you hear, thats all that matters in the end right?  :smth020

I completely agree! I'm a huge Curefan, but I also love The Smiths. I was talking to my friend -- who's almost as obsessive about The Cure as I am -- about The Smiths, and she went on this crazy rant about how I shouldn't listen to The Smiths! And another of my friends, he's a big Smithfan, and he despises The Cure, just because of the feud between Morrissey and Robert Smith. Do we really have such a need to be like them that we dismiss whole bands? Especially bands as good as The Smiths or The Cure!

You stop breathing sometimes when you watch videos of them live because you're so in love.

I have a dog ( a black cocker spaniel) named Bob! (I call him Robert James when he is naughty & Boberty when he is good!)
I can't open my mouth without referring to something associated with Robert, Cure songs, Cure facts, e.t.c!
I have strange dreams about Robert. (in one, he was naked & bald!)
I have various Cure ringtones!
I couldn't sleep for the week before I saw them at Bestival & just stood & stared, in awe,for the first hour when they took to the stage!
I have been a fan for thirty years & I still get excited by them!
I have some of Robert's hair!

when it's raining you think of the Disintegration album
O...yes it's true,or when you have an unofficial nickname with 'dark' or 'mystery',or
when you're walking through a big electronic market (like me once) and suddenly you're
hearing "Love Like Blood" from the loudspeakers and then "Let's go to Bed" you're getting
a goose flash and you're thinking:"Am I dreaming?"...then you're a fan too. :o

When you convince to your own family to be a cure fan...and your friends....
