Guys, how are you?

It feels like eternity. T.a.j., Joost, Daijin, Gandalf de Grijze. Orodaran, Sleeping Dragon, West Virgina Mool, Sarah, ra me nivar, Noam, corrupted old gnom, End of An Era, Baby Kürsch, Little Dragon, Annie...

Are you still around? What the hell? You are missed.

I am! And the same goes for many of the others, although the forum isn't as active as before -- it's been some time since the last heated debate, I'm afraid. Anyway, welcome (back) to the Slaughterhouse!

How are you doing, these days? (btw, there are plans of a larger forum meeting again this spring or (probably more likely) summer... how about joining?)

As Hansi would say, "I'm Alive" too 8) still checking daily even if there's barely anything going on!

Good to hear that most of you survived the last few years 8)

No easy feat anymore!

I'm also doing well since i still have a job that i love, family and above all, whisky. What else would a man need?

I'll be joining you guys at the spring/summer meeting if the timing is right.

Now, sorry Belgarion, but this is slightly more spectacular/shocking than your return! :P

That's correct, Mr. Joost. Your memory seems to be in good shape.

I'm around, yes. Once in a while I do check the website and have a peek at the forums too.

And Belgarion, I emphasize quality not quantity. One of my posts is worth few hundred regular ones. ;)

Uninvited grey hairs are slowly marching upwards on my ever more exposing scalp and the passsing of time is destroying dream by dream with a stunning ferocity, but I'm as fucking alive as fucking ever as well 8)

Awesome to see so many old nicks popping up all of a sudden !

But do you really eat more vegetables?

I think there were some slices of tomatoe scattered over the pizza I just ate, but it all happened so fast, it could have been anything that's red really.

Those reddish discs scattered over the pizza? They are salami.

Indeed. Tomorrow is my 11th anniversary as a member of this forum. Those were surely the days.

Once upon a time there was a forum
where we used to have a chat or two.
Remember how we spammed away the hours
and dreamed of all the meeting we would do?

Those were the days my friend
we thought they'd never end
We'd chat and spam, forever and a day
Discussing politics
Religion and the licks
that our guardians they were known to play

Then the busy years went rushing by us
the meetings getting rare along the way
Soon Heersch flags flew no longer over Wacken
And in the forum spam bots ruled the day

Those were the days my friend
we thought they'd never end
We'd chat and spam, forever ever more
full of camaraderie
dreaming of love to be
remembering shows that we had seen before

Just tonight I logged onto the forum
nothing seemed the way it used to be
days old threads that lay without an answer
and was that word shy watcher really me?

Those were the days my friend
we thought they'd never end
We'd chat and spam, forever and a day
And all the names we knew
of members old and new
where are they now, did they just go away

Then on the board an old, familiar nickname
appeared and asked me “are you still alive”?
And soon my fingers danced upon the keyboard
writing with that old familiar drive.

Those were the days my friend
we thought they'd never end
We'd chat and spam, until the edge of time
debating this and that
and posting drunk or mad
And I myself, from time to time a rhyme.....

This is actually more than moving... I also miss those days. Flaming trolls, fighting the introduction of admins to the forum, the Round Table... playing Anton Maiden as loud as possible in Wacken in order to delight the Heerschers... I miss Anton Maiden btw...

Damn you guys are old :P I went to school back then, now I'm finally graduating university.. it's been a while indeed..



EDIT: 51 posts, are you fucking kidding me???? See that's why I fought the adminds.. I used to be in the top 5 in 2005 :P

O Tex, what a beautiful poem! You almost made me cry!

Couldn't anyone make a song of that...?

This is really epic.
And yes, I miss those days, too. :-(

And why not relive them again...?

Just sayin'... :mrgreen:

Yes, I'm still alive. But no, sadly I'm not following this forum anymore.

Seems like forever since I last visited this forum, but yes I'm still alive.

@Tex: Beautifully done! And I miss those times, too. In fact, right now I'm really enjoying posting in this very forum instead of browsing some shit in FB. Feels good.

Well there's that indeed, but also getting squashed by trees is currently a plausible way to go over here at the moment. Damn it was terrible outside today, and I don't even live anywhere near the coastline where things were supposedly even way worse.

Steem, Bart, Marcel : your houses are still there ?
