The old lounge, back in the Wild West days, was filled to the brim with dedicated users and new music which everyone was willing to listen to and comment on. I know. I was the Jesse James of that old forum. Reviled by many, and loved by many others. I was a truly polarizing character. And we had some great times being all incorrect and funny and punchy and untethered.
Now, this place has become like a morgue. Lifeless. Not even a zombie presence. And the music I’ve heard so far is so completely uninspired that I struggle saying anything nice about it. Not sure if this was something caused by the mods or simply the fact that so many have moved on. I was banned a number of times for being who I am.
I would say that this place has died. And it’s likely (and sadly) a fitting demise.
