Re: Lana Del Rey(my new obsession)

I am curious to know how you found out about Lana as an "old person"? Do you gravitate to any particular songs? Pitchfork? I'm being (only slightly) ironic calling myself old, but you'd have to be outside of popular culture entirely not to know anything about it, if only due to the fact she's appea...

Re: Lana Del Rey(my new obsession)

I'll avoid addressing the question of whether or not we're intellectually and ecologically doomed and just say I enjoy what I've heard of Lana's music but I'm not sure yet how much I like her. She's got great style, certainly one she's cultivated, and her music references a lot of things I like (Dus...

Re: Put Your Youtube.com Links Here! (if you want)

I love Koop. What's even more amazing is that their music consists entirely of samples. It boggles the mind.

Re: New server

Sorry about that, Blair. I really should have posted a message that I was changing servers prior to the fact to give everybody a heads up. I didn't even realize I'd changed the address of the forum until after it was done, and by then I decided it would be too complicated to change it back. Hopefull...

Re: New server

Thanks Blue. One think I noticed is that I inadvertently changed the address of the forum, so if users had bookmarked it, it's now coming up as an error page. Hopefully people realize that they can click on the banner to go to the homepage and then click on the Discussion Forum link on the right, bu...

Re: New server

Thanks Ron! There are a few quirks yet to be ironed out, but on the whole the transition was pretty smooth. The site seems faster and more responsive to me, but I'll let you guys be the judge of that.

Re: New server

Thanks An Enormous BB Fan. I don't want to get overconfident, but the new server is much better equipped to block spammers and stop the bot attacks that slowed the site to crawl and repeatedly got it suspended. I'm already noticing much quicker load times. Keep your fingers crossed! (Sorry I referre...

New server

Apologies for not giving a pre-emptive heads up, but at long last, I'm in the process of moving www.bacharachonline.com to a new server. The upside is it should be faster, more secure and less likely to experience downtime. Unfortunately, there may be some interruptions or issues during the conversi...

Re: Problems registering or accessing your account?

Hi Djalma, Sorry for all the downtown lately! It's not my fault! The main Bacharach site is built on WordPress, and as best as I can determine it, there are bots that target WordPress sites with brute force attacks to try to hack their login credentials. The bots will attempt to log in using thousan...

Re: An idea and a request

Yes, Davide! If you could update the discography, I'll be even more indebted to you than I already am. I'll pm you with the details.

Also, thanks to Blair Cummings for his first contribution!

An idea and a request

Hi all. As some of you know, I'm the admin of this board and the webmaster of bacharachonline.com, which has been around since at least March 28, 1996. https://web.archive.org/web/19970508113128/http://studentweb.tulane.edu/~mark/bacharach.html God. That was a long time ago. Anyway, for many years n...

Re: Additional date for Burt in London

Not sure what you mean, Rio. As far as I know, Burt is still scheduled to play the Royal Festival Hall on June 26 and July 7, with two dates in Scotland and the one in Bournemouth in between. With our many insiders, this board usually has more up-to-date info about Burt's concert schedule than the m...
