smileysmile.net closed?

Postby GoogaMooga » 11 Jan 2022, 07:13

The Beach Boys forum smileysmile.net has been down for quite a while now, and judging by the comments elsewhere on the internet, it seems it may have closed for good. That is an incalculable loss, as smileysmile.net was a vast repository of knowledge that gathered many of the leading experts, fans, and writers to make it the best online source for all things Beach Boys. Moreover, no one thought to save the material or move it to another server in good time. It's almost like the burning of the Great Library of Alexandria.

Let's hope they do it again...

God only knows if they will though

Sadly, no more fun, fun, fun

They may have shut down

Googs- don't worry baby...

I'll ask my sister: Help me Rhonda...!

I know there's an answer

I'll go back in my room and wait for further news

Fingers crossed for good vibrations

Top drawer nonsense, Googa.
For a second, I thought you were being serious.
