About your moderator blinkilite:
I am an active member of the official Bunnymen forum, the Glide forum, and the fan forum at Villiers Terrace.com. I am on their e-mail lists too. I started this community because I love this band and thought the lack of Bunnymen presence on LJ needed to be rectified. Most times I re-post messages found in the news section of the bunnymen main site (http://www.bunnymen.com) and announcements made on the forums...

Just trying to spread the word and the Bunnymen love out to the world. ^_^ I encourage you to post your Bunnymen-related stories of live shows, post photos, icons, anything at all!
Cheers!
