And other MG related materials. You will receive full credit for whatever you submit that was by you. So be sure to include the name you want to be creditted as with your submission. Trouble Bunch info may or may not be credited due to cluttering of some info.
Q: Is this an official website?
A: Nope, just a fansite, but the official site's URL is: www.matthewgood.org
Q: Why the name "Disorientation"?
A: I know it isn't a super obvious name, but it is Matthew Good related. It's the name of the first manifesto that I ever read, August 1998. It is also the first sidebar/margin manifesto in At Last There Is Nothing Left To Say.
Q: Do you know Matthew Good?
A: Yes, I at one time talked to him regularly. But not so much anymore.
Q: Can you give me Matt's msn email/aim name/phone number?
A: No I cannot, but he is quite active on various social media sites, you can contact him through them. Check the links page for links to those.
Q: What is History Teacher?
A: History Teacher is a compilation of all the demos plus a few extra songs sold without Matt's or other band members consent. More info check out the Discography, under the demos section at the bottom
Q: Can you design me a website?
A: Maybe, check out Plastic Soldier Designs for more information.
Disorientation was originally started as a small part of a "Favourite Bands" website that I created to try to get some
sort of fansite out there for a bunch of different bands I enjoyed at the time. The site was of course hosted on geocties. It didn't last very long as a multi-band favourite site before focusing on just MGB
So in grade 9 (2000-2001), in computer class, I didn't know what I wanted to do for my next project, and I already knew a bit about HTML as well as had a small site to work with, so I decided to take the Matthew Good Band section off of the site I had, and make a site devoted to my all-time favourite band, rather than just top favourites of the time.
So I did just that. Which of course gave me more time to practice with what HTML could do.
Originally titled "MGBFan2002's MGB Fansite" from lack of ideas. Now that just didnt scream interesting at all to me so I decided to look through MGB related things for an idea for a name when I decided upon Disorientation, the August 1998 manifesto title, which was also the very first one I ever read. To make it seem a bit different I used sticky caps (DiSoRiEnTaTiOn) and the Bookshelf Symbol 1 font, which resulted in this:
I have since abandoned the sticky caps since they looked very childish, or first time website builder who knows little about graphics.
Disorientation was officially started on January 28, 2001. And has grown considerably since that time. Man has it ever come a long way too. It's had its ups and downs, many moves, but in the long run its been here for you, the fans. I know I don't always have it updated, but I try, and even without always being 100% up-to-date, it's still pretty comprehensive.

From time to time I have actual stuff on my personal site, but it's not updated very often these days:
I also have a design site/portfolio, designs.plastic-soldier.com, for showing all of my work

Need to contact me to report an error, or submit something?
Emailing me is the only option currently. Soon I'll try to get a form into here to make it easier.
Please put "Disorientation:" in the start of the subject line to help me identify the nature of the email.
