"Social media" has replaced forums for most people. I don't think it's that Dave has fewer people interested in communicating as much as it's that people have found much easier, albeit less lengthy/thoughtful, means to share their interests.


you are obviously right, though it's a bit of a bummer because social media is kind of the wal-martization of a community like this one once was, which isn't to say i don't use social media, because i do, but it's like... anything too thoughtful or serious on there just doesn't work. on social media, the currency is likes, and this fact changes the whole discussion.

and again i say, this forum used to be AWESOME. i know for sure there aren't fewer people interesting in David Bazan; in fact, for sure there are MORE. but we used to discuss everything on here, from like news reports to personal matters. it was really something. (/end of nostalgia).

Totally dig the artwork posted in this thread, I'm enjoying Blanco a lot, very deep thoughts shown there.

Also I did a little semblance of Blanco btw, the thing is that it is in spanish, but to those of you interested in the reading, hope that google translator would help.

thanks Alex.

it's cool you are out there promoting Bazan's work among the Spanish speaking world. i'm sure he would be pleased with that.
