I think it was Manny, Moe & Jack you were drawn to! And why not?

I made a tactical error and got booted out in the third :(

I was an original Doyen (meaning that I was at the first jolly up I think). I've been lurking very occasionally for some years and I may be back sporadically but in truth I am nowhere near as obsessed with music as some of the people on here. I often feel like an interloper.

I am amazed that it is still a going concern. How is Jethro by the way? We owe all this to him... And Mojo's poor Internet connection speeds back in the day.

Hey Cheif. Nice to see you. I have just recently come back myself, as have a few others.

Regarding music, I'm very much into local music here, so would be of no interest on this site. That's why I'm always in Nextdoorland. Love the peeps.

I unfriended you on Facebook not because I didn’t like your posts on Scottish Independece. I unfriended you because of your steadfast refusal to even consider any opinion ... and indeed facts ... that didn’t meet with your bigoted view of the world. You used to constantly demand other people gave proof of their facts and figures whilst blindly refusing to back up any of your own rants.

But most of all Joe, I unfriended you because you brought it down to personal insults and abuse. And I just couldn’t be arsed anymore.

Hi Richard, good to see you’re still around. I’m not here much either! More on Facebook.

Good Day,
I'm not exactly a Newbie. It's just that I woke up today and for some reason maybe scientists can explain I suddenly remembered my BCB password. So I thought I'd quickly check in to let those who may be interested know that I'm still around, cooped up on our small ranch in Tomball TX. I may wander beyond the fence after January 20th. We still have "Trump County" signs in the neighbourhood, even after the coup attempt. Gotta love them Texans. Hope you are all well.

Eric!! How fabulous to see you back here!

Have you been in touch with Neil at all? John Roussety I exchanged messages with him just before Christmas.

I still think Zappa's shit...

Hey, Mudshark, great to hear from you.

This place has been getting rather moribund of late, but it still feels like home.

Hey Minnie,
It's been at least 18 months since I last was in touch with Neil. As you know he's not well and frankly I've dreaded contacting him more recently, fearing the worst. I dearly miss him. Tomball has a population of 5,438 so whoever you called, I probably know him/her. Talking of Zappa: Junior was the last concert I attended pre-pandemic. It was in Austin, Feb 24th and of course he was fantastic, like his daddy would have been.

Robert, I must have fallen asleep on the couch when Cale was downstairs.

Rorsch, Neige, just wonderful and reassuring to hear you guys are still around. It means not everything has gone down the drain. Let's get vaccinated and wasted.
