I just realised I've been a fan of the dolls/Amanda for 12 years now...  I have seen Amanda numerous times (last week in Edinburgh actually) but this will be my first dolls gig.  I can't remember when I was this excited about a gig since I was a teenager!?  I am still in disbelief that this is happening.

The dolls were THAT important band for me when I was "discovering myself" in high school.  I was such a fangirl.  (i guess I still am?)  The dolls have always been in a special place in my heart now for over a decade.  It's nice to revisit the forum and remind myself of the impact the dolls have had on my life and in bringing this forum/community together.

I'll be there on the 31st, what songs are we hoping to hear?  I would really love to hear Glass Slipper.  It's an added bonus these gigs are over the Halloween period, I'm excited to see what they make of that...  the 18th year anniversary? wow.


glass slipper would be amaaazing... or bank of boston beauty queen... but i honestly doubt they will play them :-(
i personally hope they'll include some no virginia songs but i try to keep my expectations low^^

None. I'm just learning not to have plans, expectations and to take things as they come.

sounds almost Zen Buddhist!  ; - }

It is also freaking difficult. :)
This forum is like old school letters - you send it and wait for weeks for the reply. It is very Jane Austen-y. :D

haha, that's the perfect way to look at it!

I think it'd be nice if there was a space here which was specifically devoted to sharing our stories of coming out. I'm starting this selfishly because I'm searching everywhere I can for the best advice for coming out (I'm gay); but of course I invite everyone to share their coming out stories, or fears about coming out, or how they felt when their loved one came out to them.

hi Kerry,

welcome to the shadowbox.

starting a thread for this is certainly the right thing to do.

sadly, this forum is inactive.  you might get a few more replies,
as the remaining regulars check in over the next days & weeks.

i'm 69 & heterosexual. 
i'm also supportive of people who aren't.
all ways of relating & loving are cool.

if you haven't already, you might want to start a
"Coming Out" thread ob both the Official
& Unofficial AFP Patreons groups on Facebook.

let me know if you need links.

best -len

many of the d.dolls reunion shows have been on or near Halloween.

i've been to the boston & some of the nyc reunion shows since
the "breakup" almost a decade ago.
the d.dolls sounded much the same to me.
brought up similar feelings, but as I had felt more & grown,
so had my feelings.
i particularly enjoyed meeting new fans & seeing old ones.

let us know how you find the London shows?!?

& have fun here on the sbox & elsewhere.

great you started the thread!
might comment on a few of the more recent threads!
OK, if I link to this thread from the FB event page?

i've decided not to go to these shows from Boston in the USA.
hopefully, other sboxers are going & will post!

Hi :)

hm, i feel like facebook is a whole other world, and there is already a group there to connect for the shows...
it's no problem if this thread is not really used, it's just for fun and nostalgia^^
but thank you for your efforts! :)

i am sooo curious how the dolls will sound and i cant wait (and i wonder if the things i will feel when listening will resemble the things i felt when i saw them the last time, 10 years ago...getting older is strange)

and ok i'll check out other recent threads now, haha
