The Notebook v4.0

Postby Dyolf » Wed Oct 22, 2014 12:27 pm

So... new forum, new notebook! Looks like we're on v4.0 now. Let's hope the PFO community all make a smooth transition to Floydians and maybe, even Cevor will come over ;)

It'd be awesome if Cevor wants to come over. Part of me still feels nasty about making a new forum to replace PFO, but I think Cevor understands.

Given his response, I'm comfortable with the move. I was very wary before he posted, though.

The notebook, eh? Hmm... I learned how to play Dogs, and I punched a wall covered in paint. Also I joined a forum called Floydians.

Well it could have been avoided - or delayed - if PFO had taken a little time to appoint one to two new moderators to help keep the spam down and maybe search for really old threads and delete them. Even old, dead accounts. But it seems that the PFO forum is being abandoned by it's creator and left to rot. But as a community we are not letting it die, we are continuing what PFO started. It'd be useful if the PFO forum was replaced by a new page; with a link to the old (closed and archived) forum and a link to this one, for new users. :mrgreen:

Yeah, I'm hoping they will do that! It'd be great if this can be the new "official" PFO forum.

Well-

It had to be done. Arno- thanks for really taking the bull by the horns on this. I'll pay homage to PFO somehow on my signature.
Thank you PFO

Sadly, Raphael Ravenscroft has passed away. Although most famously known for his sax solo on Gerry Rafferty's "Bakers Street", he also played on Pink Floyd's The Final Cut and toured with David Gilmour on his About Face tour.

Yeah, I heard about this yesterday. Sad news indeed. :(

Unrelated - but quicksilver, you saw Floyd back in '87? Was that one of the few performances of "Echoes"?

Unfortunately not. By the time I saw them, they had stopped playing Echoes. They opened the show with Shine on.

I was 4 months old in September 1987 :lol: My dad actually saw them at Wembley Stadium in August '88. I think he was unable to afford a ticket and travel for the '94 shows so he didn't go.

I think that Pink Floyd was completely done by the time I existed. They did Live 8 and I first heard their name years later. I was a bit late to the party :)

I first got into them around 1998-99, early secondary school (aged 12-13). My intro was Delicate Sound of Thunder, which is why I like that and A Momentary Lapse of Reason so much :D

I saw them in '88. It was my first concert. I believe they got a fine from the local council for playing to loud.

A teacher of mine introduced me to Pink Floyd when I was about ten. I didn't care too much for it back then, although it did sound pretty good.

Two years later I suddenly started listening to The Wall, and that's what changed my life (no exaggerating!). That was around 2003, I think. I remember hearing about Live 8 and wanting to go there when I was 14, but I was obviously not able to go. I shed quite some tears over it. Right now, when I listen to The Wall or watch the Live 8 concert, I still get pretty sentimental and nostalgic.

The first PF album I bought was The Wall. I would have been about 13 or14.

Okay this ages me a bit. I actually bought The Wall at a record store. Actually my introduction to Pink Floyd was Piper and SOS on cassette!!

I listened to that tape until it shreaded. after that I pretty much listened to them in chronological order- which is unusual. I would spend hours at the local record shop talking and listening to music with the guy behind the counter. I'd ride my bike there every Saturday morning and he would spin the next Floyd record. I really got to hear the band as they developed over time.

I wasn't quite a year old when The Division Bell came out, so The Endless River is exciting to me in the sense that I can actually buy a new Pink Floyd album in my lifetime.

Maybe they did, maybe they didn't. I have no idea if they did actually.

Just a joke on how they deafened themselves on stage. The local council probably would have sued them for every last cent.

The local council in question made the mistake of allowing the concert to occur on a Wednesday night, in an open air venue, in a populated district.
