    After 49 years of never having played any electronic game, I have become addicted to 2048.

    This place has definitely become a quiet company.

    Very quiet… Sometimes I reminisce about the good old days on the site that Mark started. The constant posts, the group of friends, the general passion for music. But we are in a constant state of change ’cause nothing lasts forever, even cold November Rain.

    Hi there, tis I (seachange, seafret etc). Had to re register and it was a bit of a palaver. But lovely to be back. Yes, Jimbo, I used to love it here even though not one of the original gang. Maybe there is something going on that mirrors what is happening with the band? A dissipation of that initial energy, side projects, growing families, expanding awareness. Change is the only constant.

    So… how is everyone and are we posting photos of our Christmas dinners?!

    here’s an open letter that I hope no-one will actually read – much like i think most open letters are. either writing, whispering quietly or writing very, very loudly.

    this place has bought me so much joy but also slightly disillusionment. I am a fan, first and foremost, but given the amount of time and investment, not for my own entertainment, has made me disappointed to be shunted continually, just on the front of something which seems to be so assumed by every other artist i know, worked beside or have worked for. This has been my lifetime of work, this is my field.

    I provide a service of professional levels which is actually something I am an alleged real life specialist in. Or, I have done. This stems from a love for the band, but as popularity, venue size and sales grow, it would be so very nice to be treated with a mutual respect. a small amount of thanks. Its quite entertaining for positions which are contracted, paid, list is assumed. Here, not. Even just one. i dare say i’ve almost earnt it. it has been some years.

    I realise noone has asked, there is no agreement, but surely the level of independent commitment and care is vague enough to be a helping hand. It’s a little tiring, moreso disappointing. I know we are not friends. But i do provide value. This I know. I have tried.

    it’s just been highlighted that now all my belongings are dust and i have no pennies to rub together that i’m left on the side benches on the first leg, and probably all future stints. How it feels to be on the other side! i understand the envy now. Even on the other side, I could see it. It shouldn’t affect things, but maybe it does.

    I’ll probably delete this, but hey. Its been on my mind for literal years now, maybe it’ll be at rest now! (or not). thankfully the hay rolls freely here.

    I only take up a little of the collapsing space, I better cut this off…

    Don’t wanna fuck it up.

    best always, love always. congratulations, most sincerely.

    Dear Logical,
    I feel your frustration and well merited anger with the lack of recognition you deserve for services to the band (including but not limited to supporting this forum). I think it has been apparent for many moons that you have laboured for love and with no reward.
    The National make good music but few friends. You should at least be on the Guest List at each and every venue having toured worldwide and promoted the band when times were a lot leaner for them.
    They should now recognise the unstinting effort and expense you went to that assisted their upward trajectory.
    The tight gits!

    Thank you for your kind words. It’s genuinely really appreciated. I guess it’s not the renumeration that bothers me most, although that clearly is a small issue, I guess it’s the lack of respect.

    And i do know i’m owed nothing essentially, but it’s been a long old slog at times. Still – the people who i’ve met here have absolutely made it worth it.

    Do you know, my lovely, that I think about this and you often. What drives you, the energy you give, the way you support this forum. I do wonder about the band’s attitude to stalwart fans and champions of their music, which was clearly brought to light (through management etc) in the pre sale fiasco.

    I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your energy towards this place, historically and continuing. My life is richer for knowing you, if that is any consolation. And …

    “Hey, Band, listen up! Stop giving random bottles of wine to random dudes in the audience and say thanks to LH instead.
    Yours indignantly.
    xx”

    We spoke a bit about this already, but it does pain me to see you left out. In case the powers that be are reading, I wanted to publicly voice my appreciation for you and all that you do. ^What all these guys said, basically!
