Tad Williams' Message Board

Hello, babies. Welcome to Earth. It's hot in the summer and cold in the winter. It's round and wet and crowded. At the outside, babies, you've got about a hundred years here. There's only one rule that I know of, babies -- 'God damn it, you've got to be kind.'
-    Kurt Vonnegut, 1922-2007

Welcome to the message board for tadwilliams.com. All comments are welcome, whether kudos or brickbats. However, please bear in mind that Tad would like this to be a friendly, civil message board, at least in the relations between users. We reserve the right to remove postings, or even ban postings, from anyone who crosses the boundary of reasonable taste. Basically, you can argue vigorously with someone, but watch your language, okay? We have a lot of young readers as well as grown-ups, so please show them some respect.

But the main requirement here is: have fun.

RIP Tom Petty (1951-2017)

He's passed on. I loved "I Won't Back Down", "Mary Jane's Last Dance", "Learning to Fly", "Free Fallin'", and so many others. His voice was so distinctive I'd recognize it anywhere. For me, his music was a big part of the 1980s and 1990s; music I grew up on. He was a great musician; my thoughts are with his loved ones.

Big loss for the music of the world. Another oart of my youth gone ...

Re: RIP Tom Petty (1951-2017)

The video for "It's Good To Be King" had a huge effect on my artistic sensibilities.  It was weird and grounded and trippy at the same time.  It also made me appreciate those posed photos --- which I enjoyed again when I got to watch "Koyaanqatsi".  The song is great too, and it puts me in a very pensive mood.  (That of the singer, who seems to be as emotionally low as the drifter that closes the video.)

I'd forgotten that one. Thanks for the reminder, Rook.
