Re: Fringey Stuff

I know I'm coming in pretty late on this, and sticking my nose where it doesn't belong, but that's what I do, and I'm curious to know: what was decided about the female singer/songwriter night? Because the 'gender doesn't matter' trope is total nonsense from my point of view, and if Forest has never...

Re: Forest Reading list

Wow! I had no idea. Thanks for that. Fun fact: EYFA's office in Amsterdam used to be located beside an association designed to promote the acceptance of man-boy love, until they were summarily dismissed from the building (the man-boy lovers, not EYFA).

MIK QUANTIUS & DAGORA gig for September

I know this is jumping the gun a bit, but a friend from Amsterdam contacted me today looking to play in Forest in September. They are looking for a gig on September 19th of 21st. Is there an events book for beyond September? Here's the description: MIK QUANTIUS is a vocalist from germany, and is pro...

OSP has most of what you'll need to cook, but I recommend getting some big pots out of storage, depending on what you're making. Definit...
