To The BME Community

I hope you might remember me, my name is Nefarious. My childhood was surrounded by BME and I have missed it in the past years, so hello I hope you are doing well.  As you may already know, today 10 years ago my dad Shannon Larratt passed away. And if you were not aware, my mom Rachel Larratt passed away last year in June. Together they built BME and created a place where people truly had freedom. BME may have not been as active recently as it was in the past, but I do not want to let it die with them. Unfortunately through those years of neglect, the site and community have deteriorated. Since my mom’s passing we have been dealing with hosting issues, unforeseen struggles, and a string of bad luck. We’re still gaining full control over some accounts. It is very complicated, but we are asking for patience. We are trying to get it back, but this time it will take longer than it has before.

I cannot promise that the millions of photos and videos since its inception in 1996 are safe right now, but if it does come to it, together we can create a new collection. Jon, Jen, Marks and I have worked tirelessly trying to keep BME online, and we will continue to do so. In the meantime we will keep this blog running, and we are launching a private website that will allow us to stay connected.

Times have changed and so have all of you. BME on the other hand has had nearly no changes in the past 15 years. We are overdue for more than just a makeover and recent events mean that BMEShop is our only source of income right now.

  1. I am a member since shortly after BME began. I met your mom and dad at Mod Prom in Canada. (Actually there was a small one prior). Since then I have lost my husband who died in 2004. He was the one that found BME for us. I don’t really go there a lot anymore. I remember when your Mom was living in South Carolina. We were actually taking to each other during the flooding in her basement and she was worried about the BME mechanics. Then she when through helping the community after the flooding. I am now one of the older people from BME. Rachel archived my page and I thing my husband’s as well. I will gladly support BME in any way I can. I would love a new BME shirt too. I wish you all the success each and everyone of you! Stay weird! Stay Calm! BME 4 ever!

  2. I have your dad’s RoboCop ring he made that was a gift. my friend Melissa has the zombie ring just like it. it warms my heart to see this still trying to come about. I was around in the late 90’s helping with the chat and mod q &a. if you need any help, I’d be more than willing.
