  1. I'm very sad to hear this terrible news. I never met Marsha in person, but I certainly feel as though I met her here on this board, PMing back and forth. She struck me as kind, generous and smart. I will miss her.
  2. Oh no! I'm so very sorry to hear this sad news.
  3. Thanks, Jimmy. I suspect I'll be around more now that we're awaiting a new album!
  4. That's an extremely powerful ad, and as well as Bruce's lyrics applied to the AIDS crisis, they apply to other ways in which people are left to waste away.
  5. The Buffalo part was just a given! About a year ago, I was passing through Buffalo and was actually looking around, wondering if Tim was in any of the cars around me...although I wouldn't have recognized him even if he was.
  6. I'm pretty sure the third b was for Bonaventure, as in St. Bonaventure University. I remember him talking about the Bonnies--their team. bbb and I spent a lot of time squabbling with each other in the political forum, way back when. I wish I'd met him in person, because I suspect we'd have gotten along if we'd met at a show. I wish his friends and family peace.
  7. Meet Miles, our newest of three dogs. He was a foster and we fell in love and made it official.
  8. Grab your ticket and your suitcase.

  9. We lost our sweet Reuben (15 year old lab) to cancer in July. The house feels too big and empty without two dogs in it, so we found our Nico (the cockapoo) a little lady friend. Meet Lily! She's a terrier mix and came from a hoarder situation. When she came to the shelter, she was terrified and sick, but after three months of socialization they put her up for adoption. Now she's a total love bug. Nico wasn't so thrilled with the competition at first, but three weeks later they are starting to be friends.
  10. Killer Joe asked me to post the following, from a texting exchange we had last night. "Oh. he knew how to push buttons, that's for sure. He was an acquired taste. Like Scotch. It took me quite awhile to realize he was, for the most part, trying to piss people off or stir the pot. I used to love how he would have GMan and Partner Sonny infuriated with him. Mark and I joined GL the same summer of 2000. If it's possible, go back and find some of his posts/stories from back then. I swear he could transport you to the dingy seaside bar in NJ and you could actually hear the waves softly crashing as you read the story. Nobody else at GL has made me feel that realism in their stories. Many have tried, some did o.k., some did not so o.k. Most after the first paragraph would make me stop reading because my interest quickly subsided. Not MM! He was imitated but IMO never equaled. Not even close." KJ also wrote: "He was definitely a Bruce afficionado and probably forgot more about things Bruce related than most fans know."
  11. BillyB, I'm so sorry for your loss. I'm sorry to say I never met Mark in real life. Here on the internet, he and I butted heads pretty often. His posts were sometimes aggravating but always entertaining, and I feel as though an era has passed for us all. He singlehandedly gave this place an extra dimension. I've been searching for the right words--maybe something out of Bruce's lyrics--but failing. The best I can do is to say he added spice to the menu here. Sometimes he stung the palate, but things are going to taste quite a bit blander without him.
  12. This was an event for the history books. I regret that I didn't take more pictures! RIP Rich.
  13. Stand back, son, and let a man work.

  14. Till then, can I call you Pops?

  15. is enjoying the memory of handfuls of Bruce.
