For some weird reasons, I just checked when I started participating regularly in forums of Princeland. And it was almost exactly six years ago
At the begining I started posting from time to time at the org, then I discovered HQ and left the org for good.
This is not a self-celebration, I am not important: but now I remember the good & bad days at HQ, the countless entertaining nights, the silly jokes at The Royal Hub (not always well understood... right, Anne? ), the feuds and the funny threads at HQ, the trip to London in 2007 (unfortunately to not meet anybody from HQ), the good friends I've made in this land, the celebrations, the wasted time, the imaginedfriendswhoeturnedtobenobodies, the nobodieswhoturnedtobegoodfriends, the music discoveries, the amazing people who came and went (Kosta, where you at???), the rock solid people who always are there (you know who you are...), the time lost for other, possibly more important things...
... it's been a ride, but I tell you: I won't forget the ride.
My grandsons will possibly listen to grandfa Cateto speaking about the beginings of the net and how he found fans of the best musician of his generation, a purple one called Prince, who despite being a not-too-friendy guy provided us with the best music in studio and, moreso, live.
Times come and go, but memories and unforgettable moments stay forever.
You guys are responsible for many of those:
Jaime, Pat, Jose, Toto, Aaron, Laura, Susanna, Marika, Terji, Ciccio, Harry, Jeroen, Darryll, Kosta, Pat, Kostas, Pieter, Tom, Dansa, Erik, Phil, Ian, Cam, Hans, Pieter, Anne, Pixie... the list goes on... please excuse me as there are many names missing.
Thanks everybody: Sometimes you just need to bring back memories and enjoy every minute.
