Those Were the Days

From . . . man, about 2005 until maybe 2011? 2012? there were so many of us there. Pre-Facebook, sort of alongside MySpace and the other bulletin boards (I remember being somewhat active on Shock-Waves too—think that’s what it was called). Anyway, just dredged this up from an ancient-old folder. Cool to see it again. Still have matching stickers, too:

But, of course, The Velvet went away, as good things will. Worse, it just blipped into nothingness—no archives left over to prove all the many, many, many wonderful threads. But I still meet people from it. Met two in the past month alone, I think. And there’s more I’ve yet to meet, but hope to.

Anyway, just thinking about the olden days.
