This is a fine digital b/b representation of what it feels like to grow old and die.

I was a bit surprised to hear that Q and Jefe got nixed... Q was a nut, but I've never known him to be a liar and brought a lot to the BFC. Jefe was unhinged; nonetheless, was entertaining and had a lot of good stuff as well.

Seeing the announcement of their departure, I couldn't help remembering how the old flame throwers like Bobby Sands, Penta, Kasca would post things merely to start a flame war. I never took any of it personally, but it took so much away from the subject at hand. It got old and a few cool posters packed up and disappeared.

I am a nobody with a worthless opinion who freely admits to be an expert in nothing. I get where Robert is coming from in banning them; however, I am saddened to see them go.

This place was great a while ago with some awesome posters, but unfortunately the BFC appears to have turned into another offshoot of Vice.

Really sad... Kinda like a great Mom and Pops store that fell victim to Starbucks.


Pretty much agreed.

I mean, I think Mach should be banned for his own protection (seriously), but other than that the attraction of the place was that it's a free for all. Posers. Legit. Everything in between. Good times. It's always been pretty obvious who was who.

Bring em all back I say. Sure, some snowflakes could never really handle that, but fuck em. There is always Lonely Planet.

I already tried getting young and dying but it didn't work.

Dunno man, I still remember angelfire sites. Never kept a diary, with the online stuff it's built in and generally about as useful, interesting and cringe-inducing.
Endut! Hoch hech!
