*Bumpity bump*

I want to know why we can't post anything on Justin's Facebook wall? It means we can't abuse him (sorry, contact him) properly!  Grin

Also, maybe Justin needs to branch out into the 'being on the panel of a music competition' area....?  I'd love to hear his reaction to some of the acts that go on these shows.  Hee hee.

I dread to think what shape his mentoring role would take.

Sometimes the grass is greener, you just have to figure out if it's because the other field is full of shit.

Where would you even start?  His turn last Saturday seemed to consist of bad Dad dancing and be powered by the fear in his eyes.  Not that I watch mind you.

I'd like this board to come to life again - Facebook is ok but I still miss a dedicated space where you can share info and chat about Justin and the band.

How about it?

I only found facebook a few months ago. It keeps throwing people at me it thinks I should be friends with.
The most interesting part is typing in a name, seeing a face, and thinking, "Is that really him/her from 25 years ago"! :o

Good idea...let's spread the word to all our Facebook friends and tweety pie it around as well.

*gets out the feather duster to spruce up the board*
Gotta get the place looking good for the Del boys....

I don't think message boards have had their day, I post on others for my other interests and they are very busy and active.

I'm not sure why this one seems to be in the doldrums, but it is a shame. You'd think with the tour going on and seemingly well-supported, there'd be more people going back to investigate the Dels sites online and joining in here.

It was the news of the tour that prompted me to try and find a Del Amitri forum for the first time in several years, anyway!

Yikes, I am having to relearn this all over again. Kind of like the riding a bike thing but not quite. I hate facebook with a passion now. Only on it to keep in touch with a couple friends. It is mostly politics and shared shit that I waste too much time clicking on.

I had to have my password reset but I can't find anywhere to reset it again to something different. In fact, when I look at my home page - it offers me nothing that I can actually change.
