    Yeah I was wondering that myself.

    Smug's been gone for a long time.

    When I got the Recordings mod job it was because DHC didn't want to do it anymore, maybe something came up.

    I hope they are both okay.:(

    Ah, for lo, I talk to Pete on a daily basis.

    He's quit TB; he just felt he spent too much time here, and that he'd learned all he could and wanted to concentrate on other things.

    Long and the short: he felt TB outlived it's usefullness to him.
    He's fine, just no longer a TBer.

    I myself am going to be all but absent from TB as well come September.

    Pretty smug attitude. The day I quit learning is the day I die. I learn something new here almost every day, and I don't think that'll change.

    Oh, to be 20 again...

    Are you taking a break, or leaving all together?

    No, learned all he could from Talkbass, not period. Pete's not THAT smug. He's still doing the learning thing like a mutha (I actually admire his tenacity in learning), just not from TB.

    Nick: Possibly period. I'm just not enjoying Talkbass like I used to, and at this point, I'm only still here because of a crippling addiction to TB, so I'd like to use my move as a way to cut down/off TB.

    I noticed Peter and DHC were gone, but when the ivy is wilting from the heat, well it's time to move on. [ Peter wasn't the only Ivy basshead that was ever on TB. ]

    When the trauma of college transition is over, gainful employment is found [ there is such a thing?], I expect we will hear a little from older, smugger members.

    Some of us have already been there, but we still enjoy interacting with other musicians.

    They will have their space, we will welcome their return.

    Cassanova seems to be missing as well, we used to chat nearly nightly on AIM, and I haven't seen him on in a while.

    All these people leaving here are depressing.
  10. Yep, the "vibe" of TB seems to be changing, and not for the better.

    Or maybe it's just the summertime blues.

    This kind of crap is why a lot of good members have decided to drop out of TB.

    The board has turned into a teenage chat board. I for one am sick of absolutely stupid posts,like the one above, that are only made for post count.

    I'm afraid that we are going to see a lot of other members leaving.

  12. Word Pkr2, word.

    Although OS appears to be in his mid 30's.

    I sent him an email the other day as well (without reply). I hope he's alright. He seems to have dropped offline. I know he had some computer issues last month too.

  14. lol, osama_spears is actually 14 years old. He just wanted (and suceeded) at tricking you:D

    no doubt... like squashing ants, the more users you block, the more they show up :rolleyes:
  16. I disagree...I said that in a joke,the forum would loosen up a bit...everyone is so tense around here,we can all be friends,share info,and abide by the rules all while having fun :)

    I even put a smiley to ensure I was kidding , and I'm not doing it for post count...I am doing it to joke around with people.

    Geesh,sorry :rolleyes:


    Oh...and another thing,I am appauld that you dare call me a child! I am 38! :mad: ;)

    EDIT: If the tables were turned...and there was a post about me missing(I doubt there would be one)I'm sure DHC would post something like "Osama...Osama who?" or Peter would say some joke about me...So,it'd be the same situation. Don't judge someone on there age...
  17. Wow...finally someone understands me around here! :rolleyes: ;) :D

    Pkr, I agree, and hopefully you will not be one of the leaving parties. I guess it's a time for the kids to grow up and the elderly to loosen up. There has to be a happy medium.

    That being said, it is not directed at anyone or any post. Just my $.02
  19. I agree to the fullest...

    If it bothers you guys,I will try not to joke as much as I do,and I will be more long as you guys loosen up and keep your bad comments to yourself,as will I :)
