    Bathroom shouldn't be too much of a trouble to find . . . maybe you're looking too hard?

    Where's the barman here? Or do you serve yourself?

    Is there an official History of the JC? If so, was the Great Basher/Slacker Exodus the end of the Second Golden Age or the Third?

    I'm the "barman," Commander Antilles. When I'm not around, it's serve yourself, or hail one of the droids.

    Well, I agree Pyrus, I made a thread called "N.E.W.B.I.E. and newbie: a distinction" in summer of '99, and credited your acronym as:

    Non
    Enlightened
    Weirdo
    Babbling
    Insults at
    Everyone

    Is that how you originally wrote it?

    Jabbadabbado, there hasn't been a comprehensive history of the JC made; Paul made one that went up to the first trailer in Nov. 98.

    And there's only been one Golden Age. It ended in late spring-May '99. That's not to invalidate the numerous great times since then, but the Golden Age was a time of a small community of members who cared about the integrity of that community. When TPM came out, the community ceased to be and was replaced by several cliques, and the term "golden age" became relative to the good times of the respective cliques.

    A distinctive marker of the Golden Age that has sadly not been replicated since: conflicts between member and admin were solved quickly and without lingering resentment.

    I'm just in an odd mood for sharing song lyrics. I've sent my poor friend on AIM about 6 or 7 songs, I think.

    When I get older, losing my hair
    Many years from now
    Will you still be sending me a valentine?
    Birthday greetings, bottle of wine?
    If I'd been out 'till quarter to three
    Would you'd lock the door?
    Will you still need me?
    Will you still feed me?
    When I'm sixty-four

    You'll be older too
    And if you say the word
    I could stay with you

    I could be handy mending a fuse
    When you're lights have gone
    You can knit a sweater by the fireside
    Sunday mornings go for a ride
    Doing the garden, digging the weeds
    Who could ask for more?
    Will you still need me?
    Will you still feed me?
    When I'm sixty-four

    Every summer we can rent a cottage
    in the Isle of Wight
    If it's not too dear
    We shall scrimp and save
    Grandchildren on your knee
    Vera, Chuck, and Dave

    Send me a postcard, drop me a line
    Stating point of view
    Indicate precisely what you mean to say
    Yours sincerely, wasting away
    Give me your answer, fill in a form
    Mine forever more
    Will you still need me?
    Will you still feed me?
    When I'm sixty-four
    ****
    That was rather random, wasn't it? I think they'd make good wedding vows. LOL

    One word: pants.

    A few more words: Man, I need to stick around on the weekends. SoK's cafes are hoppin' when I'm gone! Well, I'll have a pint o' Guinness and hum some Beatles tunes, I guess. :)
