I wonder how the hell I got myself into this mess.
That's a relief! I wonder who bought it and what their plans are - and how that's going to impact the preservations of the bungalows. If they're going to be preserved, that is...Just wanted to clear something up- someone bought this property.
Respect? Don't start out with a lie, it tends to lessen the believability of what comes next. It's not my forum anyway. There are other users here who can delete what I'm typing to you right now if they think it's out of line.Mjp; I know this is your board, and I respect that.
Why?However, I wish that you would be a little less cynical, just sometimes at least.
I was?Frankly, you were wrong about this working
Only time will tell if that it is the case. You can't say it "didn't stick" yet....you were wrong about the Nazi thing sticking
Why is what you wanted more important that what I wanted? Or the owner of the property wanted?That's all I wanted anyway.
You are/were "in cahoots" with them as it related to your introduction to this forum and, and that is the only way I know you, so that's what I was talking about (again and again). A cynical person might wonder why every article about DeLongpre mentions both of you.Also, I have a "working relationship"...with Richard and Kim...BUT, I have never spent time with them socially...Thus, I would appreciate it if you stop referring to us as if we were in cahoots.
No.I find it ironic that some of you want parts of the structure as momentos, but don't care if it's torn down. Odd, no??
Not ironic at all. I have said that it is only a matter of time until it is torn down and am fine with that. Making it an upscale yuppie neighborhood or painting the thing green, gutting it and making it a chiropractors office does the same thing as levelling the building and making it a parking lot.As a final thought, I find it ironic that some of you want parts of the structure as momentos, but don't care if it's torn down. Placing importance on it in some ways, but not in others. Odd, no??
well I for one was just (kind of) joking about all of this (kind of). and personally I think that saving things that have once "been" is kind of like saving love letters from past relationships. it may have meant something then, but now its past and gone. and to save one building while everything around it changes? just not the same as it was. I think that its not the house that was so important to Buks writing but the atmosphere of the whole scene/area and the way that Buk (was) related to it. I'm sure that it must be different now. but yeah, I would still keep a tile as a momento.As a final thought, I find it ironic that some of you want parts of the structure as momentos, but don't care if it's torn down.
