They are without a doubt the best & most talented thrash metal band that never made it big. Their music is very similar to Metallica (80's only), Megadeth, Anthrax, and most of the other 80's thrash metal bands that never sold out. They are best known for giving Metallica their founder/song writer/bassist Jason Newsted to Metallica in 1986 after Cliff Burton died (RIP). Screw Metallica for never letting him show the world that he can write music. They only let him co-write 3 songs in all the years he was in Metallica. He co-wrote 3 songs on the 2nd Flotsam & Jetsam album and he didn't even play on the album because he was already in Metallica. I've been a fan for over 20 years and I've always tried to turn people onto them. Having met the band several times, I've always tried to do my small part to get their name out there. So if anyone reads this, likes hard rock/heavy metal, and never heard of Flotsam & Jetsam, pick up any one of their 9 albums. You won't be disappointed.


I may be mistaked but I think that Flotsam and Jetsam is the name of a chapter in The Two Towers. This chapter takes place after the Ents have torn apart Saruman's tower and the place is flooded. Gandalf, Aragorn et al come upon the scene to find Pippin and Merry chillin among the flotsam and jetsam of Saruman's stronghold.

Here is the scene recreated in Lego form:

Well, let's see here.

Kinda like the 'Cuna, i used to use many names on the internet, and it took me many times to find the right one

I went from
to Stayin_Alive_All_Nite
to something involving a lot of these.. º╜ôƒ§ and stuff like that

And then finally, while making a new starcraft account because I had lost too many games under my old one, and didn't want to be kicked whenever I joined a game (you guys know the feeling) I came up with Teck_72

T-Travis, my first name
Eck - first three letters of my last name
72 - my favorite number

Teck is used here because i could use it, and that became my nickname all through highschool.

I used to be known as 'Fender' because that's the guitar my dad had as a kid, and he gave it to me for my 16th birthday. After about 200 posts, I heard the word 'Flockers' somewhere I immediately knew it was the name for me.

Here I am, the member you all know and love. :-D
