Yeah - chicks, eh?!


"Skirts", if you will.

But I changed my mind (it's the woman in me).

Cell phones. When people wanted to use their phone as an internet-accessing device - that was a BCB killer. Could you imagine Quaco composing one of his epic posts on a fucking phone?

Damn straight.

Very few people post in it anymore. I posted a Quaco response so it's not like I have comedy gold to work with.

Yep. I went to send some money to Tony & Debi and was frankly shocked at that figure.

Amazing and really did warm the heart.

I was coming here to post the same thing. That's what we've always been great at. When someone has a genuine need, we come to each other's aid. Every single time, without fail.

II'll never give up totally on this place as long as we have that. And I think we always will.

It's an amazing little community. Even for someone like me who doesn't post as much. The people I've met, the people who helped me when I had a CD to promote (and that was back in the Mojo days, I believe). The folks here in L.A. who will come out to greet a visitor to our fair city. I could go on and on but you all already know. It's something special.

BCB has always been great, it changes and it evolves but it never loses something, the relationships.

back in 2000, these were the folks that contributed to the BCB album project, a roll call as it were. We need more of these things these days, galvanised the community and wore colours on sleeves.

None of this makes any sense to me. Was there a BCB in 2000? And what is that list supposed to represent?
