I guess I'll post this now, while I am thinking about it. Bowlie is shutting down in a few days. It's kind of a bummer, but life moves on. It's weird, I signed up in August of 2001 because I was looking for tix to the sold out Belle & Sebastian gigs at the Warfield. And I've been hanging around there for seven years. SEVEN YEARS! And that's probably nothing to some people.
Anyways, it's been a nice run. Without getting too in-depth, I've made friends with a lotta cool peeps, peeps I probably have no business even knowing. I even went to Seattle to witness the marriage of two forum members. How cool is that?
The pic above is from the Ace Hotel, where we stayed at in Seattle. One of my favorite pix, I think we were all a bit drunk and someone brilliantly came up with the idea of creating our own Polyphonic Spree album cover, sorta like this...
I thought about posting a Belle & Sebastian song, as Bowlie rose from the ashes of the Belle & Sebastian Jeepster forum. I'm not feelin' that, tho, so those guys are out. This one dude posted a "Thank You and Goodbye" thread, and it keeps reminding me of this song, Thank You and Goodnight, by The Angels. You can find it on the super cool girl groups comp, Growin' Up Too Fast.
If you are interested in a solid girl groups collection, I highly recommend Growin' Up Too Fast or the seriously awesome (four disc set) One Kiss Can Lead To Another. Seriously, there's not a bad track between either set, unless you talk to Sharon, who hates Marsha Gee's Peanut Duck.
So anyways, to paraphrase The Angels; Thank you, Bowlie, and goodnight.
The Angels > Thank You and Goodnight
