Where Is Everyone?????
 
Okay, I checked and I am signed in, so that's not it. HEY1 However, I have not seen a post here for at least a month. Why??? Is the site no longer active?? :?? Hello! HI!

I can always get the most up to the moment info at Tommy's #1 Site, but his message board leaves a lot to be desired. When you post something, you rarely get an answer. So, I have not posted there in a long time. Otherwise, the site is very good.

Since Shania seems to have her hands into a lot of things recently, I am surprised that our old mainstays like Spock, FV, etc., have not made their impressions clear. I've been a member of this site since 1997, although my info says 2000. I believe there was a glitch with that several years ago and it got changed to 2000. Anyway, hope someone can explain why there is no activity anymore.

I've wondered the same, Steve. I think Shania's magic is waning for some.

Thanks TAL! I was beginning to think I was on the Twilight Zone Board. I've never seen it so inactive all these years. Even when the club went to Timmins and the Center, etc., there was still a few posts. Oh well, at least you heard my post. HEY1

I think most info is exchanged via Facebook.
That's the main reason that many forums do not run as well.

Steve F 01-24-2018 04:43 PM

True, but Facebook tends to be a place where info is constantly coming at you from everywhere. Plus tons of people want to be your friends that you have never heard of. I do go on most every day to see what my family and closest friends are doing, and yes, Shania things show up often. But I like forums like this as you can concentrate on single subjects.

What I think is the most interesting is that even during Shania's long breaks, this board was more active. Now there's a new album, she's on TV fairly regularly, and there's an upcoming tour and this place is dead. Makes no sense to me.

Of course, it's also kinda weird to me that Shania's team seems to have stopped promoting the new album. No new recent singles or videos.

Steve F 01-26-2018 11:57 AM

I agree. Yes, I don't know what is going on here. Right now I get my info from Tommy's Site. He seems to be right up to date. I do look at her facebook page too.

I am here :BL I check the board often during any week, but am trying to spend less time online and prepare for Shania's tour so to speak....it's like going on a diet before the holidays because you know you will want to eat a lot of goodies later.... :drool:

I think it is a slow Shania news period overall, it seems Shania is waiting for the start of the tour to promote the album again, we'll likely see more Shania the sooner to the actual tour we get....

I liked the docudrama on REELZS " The Price of Fame" the other night. They did a decent job with it.

Hi Steve, Tal---guys, i would rather have 2 loyal fans like you guys for SHANIA, instead of having so many with questionable loyalty. Other artists, still around because of those very loyal fans. Mr. Sinatra music is still around even though a lot of his fans are no longer around. Because the remaining ones are still requesting for his songs and buying his old albums. And even getting new fans from new Listeners.

JNT 02-08-2019 09:36 AM

That's the kind of loyalty that the Beatles, Stones, The Who, Eric Clapton, Mr. Elvis Presley etc have over the years.

I might add Linda Ronstadt. They have just released an 80's concert she did in Hollywood for HBO. Being a live CD, it's great. She was such a talent and now she can't sing much at all due to Parkinson's Disease. It is sad, but as the old saying goes, nothing lasts forever.

True story. I was such a Ronstadt fan back then, and all of a sudden, she seemed to be gone. Didn't know why, but later I found out what happened to her. So, I started looking for a lady singer to listen to. One day, I heard FTMO on the radio and have been a fan ever since. True, Shania and Linda are two different types of singers, but for me, Shania brings a wonderful talent to the fan. Great songwriter, good singer, and awesome stage presence. Doesn't get much better than that. I miss Linda's fabulous voice and songs like Back In The USA, Just One Look, and Blue Bayou, and it's possible that had Linda not stopped singing, etc., I might never have become a Shania fan, but that time has gone and Shania Twain fits the bill just fine.
