i know it seems a bit sad or cheesey but i had an idea for mothers day 2009 The date of Mothers' Day 2009 is Sunday 22 March (UK)
i think it would be really nice for bill and toms mum to get thankyous from all of us uk fans because if it wasnt for her we [glow=red,2,300]would have no tom and bill, and would not have had their great music [/glow]
lets somehow suprise their mum (not as in BOO) but somehow [shadow=red,left,300]maybe send her our thanks[/shadow] ?? that would be cool
Yeah, soubi's got a point. It's a cute thought in some way though. I don't know. You'd need to do something for the G's mums too... and how would they receive it? Btw, Mother's Day is in the beginning of May in Germany so if we should stick with that, I think.

Liz is right - Bill and Tom (and Georg and Gustav's) family are kept very private. You rarely see them anywhere. They don't go with them on tour, they don't give interviews, they just keep out of the spotlight. Us focusing on them isn't a very good idea - it doesn't respect their privacy, though we are all, of course, very thankful for their creations.
I was thinking about this some more today and have come to the same conclusion. While the intention behind this idea is really sweet we shouldn't do it. First of all they're musicians and in a band and we should always focus on this and not their families. Their families and friends are about all they've got left that's really private to them so this is something we shouldn't reach out to.
I have to admit, I never get my mum anything for mother's day. Well, nothing but a card.
Once again, I'm going to ramble on about how wonderful THUKST is. Here, we have fans that want to thank the members' mothers, and people wanting to respect their privacy. It's all very well thought out and organised.
