    Default I still wake up everyday and google Van Halen

    Ive been doing this since at least 1996, any time i was in my grade 7 computer lab even, had a guitar and VH became my band after Kurt Cobain died as i was a huge fan of before when i was an even younger kid.

    Not sure why just always a habit get up search for news of my favorite things, this goes back long before googling became a term even.

    I just turned 37, been here since 16th bday and other sites before like the Pleasure Dome, Van Halen Mailing List which I was once well known by the community there, and its just always been a part of my day I guess.

    Am I the only one that does this?

    Shit. I actually still have to at least listen to a VH song every single day.

    It's kind of a jinx type thing. I need VH just once a day. Out.

    Google? Why? Nowadays the VH "news" automatically come to my phone, I imagine it's the same for everyone else. Immediate access to vh news... problem is, there really isn't any real VH news anymore. Sigh.

    Same here. Since '96 when I learned how to use the Internet. VHND, VHML, Pleasure Dome, Slawterhouse/Roth Army, SHML, Extreme Forever, Melodicrock, etc, etc. But since '99, like Raldo, it's almost exclusively here (and the VHND). Pretty much every day for 20+ years lol.

    Set up some google alerts my man. It saves a step!

    Although people aren't lying about coming here first. Half of the articles that came out for a long period of time were referencing actual threads here. I know we joke about it, but it was for real. Someone would mention a rumor, a news article would pick it up (and in many cases not cite their source), we would all rejoice because now this rumor had a legitimate source, and then we were off to the races in a vicious cycle. It happened at least a dozen times.

    By the end there was that Metalsludge site or whatever that was basically taking posts from here and turning it into an article. I remember reading an article that quoted Dave's Dreidel, and I was like "hey, I know him!" lol

    On a related note, CNN once quoted me in an article when they announced the postponements in 2012 (which I still find hilarious). Hence my sig.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    Its easy to live in the past on the net. I don't know how healthy it is. But I do it. I come here its more social then VH related for years now.

    Like Raldo, I come here. Most days.

    Googling VH everyday, that’s some serious dedication!!
    SOME VH LINKS CLASSICS


    "Sammy is fat, Dave is bald, Mike is next in line to be the Pope, Eddie is a drunk, Wolfie is fat, Gary is gay, CVH is VH, Mike is VH, Sammy can outsing Dave on a tequilla hangover, Eddie is a meth head, How Many Say I is the worst VH song ever, Up for Breakfast is a close second, Dave was horrible at radio and everybody hates the assless chaps.
    Ok I think that covers everything." Ziggysmalls

    "I sense that some of our newer passengers may be nervous due to the sudden turbulence. Please be seated, this is simply a normal part of the periodic ride.
    I didn't say we'll get to the destination, but until Alex comes out a says what a complete waste of carbon DLR is, we're still climbing, so strap yourselves in.
    Those of you who have been on this ride before, the hottie in the mini will be around shortly with your drinks......." Red
