Hello from Los Angeles...
« on: December 29, 2016, 22:35:49 »
Just stumbled across this forum since www.thecure.com is down.  Not sure how that happened.  Did Robert pull the plug on the site?

Been listening to the Cure since I saw the video for Why Can't I Be You? on MTV back in the 80's.  I was about 11 or 12 at the time and was intrigued with this grown man wearing a bear suit dancing around and I totally loved the song.  It still is one of my favourites.  The Kiss Me LP started my beginning and I just fell in love with Disintegration.  In 90 I joined a Cure Fan club, but I forget the name of it, but I received a monthly magazine and had made some connections with fellow cure fans across the US.  I only remember 2 in particular.  One girl went by the name of Image, but I forget the state she was in.  The other girl was in a city called Nacogdoches, TX.  I can't remember her name though.  Man!   I haven't thought about this for decades!!!  At any rate, I went by the name "The Exploding Boy".

So my life pretty much took the norm.  I got married 18 years ago and now have 3 budding Cure fans.  One boy and 2 girls.  My oldest is 11 now and then I have twins - one boy and one girl. 

I've seen the Cure about 8 times or so out here in California.  I missed the last tour though.  My favourite was probably during their Disintegration Tour where they played Dodger Stadium.  That was a great show, except for getting a beer thrown from the level above which poured all over my black clothes.  Not cool, but I still enjoyed the show nonetheless.  Love & Rockets and The Pixies were openers.  I saw them at the Rose Bowl for their Wish Tour.  That was an amazing show as well.

My favourite Cure song is Birdmad Girl, possibly because my favourite animal is a polar bear.  :smth023

So hello to all my fellow cure fans.  Keep on listening to the Cure!  :smth020

Hello to L.A. & welcome.

No, worked last time I looked. (Not that I look very often, here is more busy even in quieter times...)
If a website isn't working temporarily, doesn't mean someone "pulled the plug". There is a multitude of possible reasons (server problems, maintenance work etc.)!

Did you meant the forum there? It was finally closed in 2013.
Welcome and thanks for the introduction.  :smth023
Wenn das Spätjahr kommt, werf ich mich in einen
Wagen, ziehe die Decke des Wagenleders hoch zu
meinem Kopf, hülle mich in einen Mantel - so daß nur
meine Augen übrig bleiben, mit denen nach Euch ich
greife.

No.  I was curious to see if there was any "NEW" news on 4:14 Scream and I tried accessing www.thecure.com and I kept getting an error, so I searched "is thecure.com down?" and the curefans.com link came up.   :smth020 :smth023

Hi and welcome Willy.

I now live in San Jose, Costa Rica but im originally from Caracas, Venezuela. I've been living in Costa Rica for seven years now.

So why did you post in a topic called "Hello from Los Angeles"?  :?

If you want your "own" introduction thread let me know, then I will move this!
