Well, the only thing he left is his RP post, so again, so self centered he left the things he directly created rather than allowing the forum to just be, he took out all the PC Games posts, his console posts, just a total *******

What the hell, man? At least delete that **** too

edit: can we get this stuff back or did he take his ball and go home like a bitch?

Idk, feels like a portion of the culture here was selfishly stripped by a jerk, and I'd rather not see it successful, so I'm hoping to get it back but if that's not possible I suppose we'll move on then

Post by: eropS on May 17, 2017, 09:58:08 am
Sure, but the typed posts are what make up the sum of what we are, so to take that from us in such an unjustified manner is kind of a dick move, that frustrates me

well honestly, strip away all the goobiness from sam's post and that's how i feel. over time this forum gradually just become a backdrop to my one-on-one chats with those of you i talk to regularly (not to say i wouldnt love to talk to the rest of you.)

I really hate the trend of TV programmes and films using pop-songs as incidental music instead of having their own soundtrack.

Title: Re: The off-topic Topic
Post by: Plank of Wood on May 18, 2017, 04:31:05 am
I don't mind it. It's cheaper/easier to just pay for royalties for an existing song than to get an in-house musician, and often helps promote small time musicians to a larger audience. Or, if you take Westworld's or Black Mirror's example, helps create a sense of familiarity that is otherwise impossible with an OST.

The problem is that most of the time they're wispy hipster acoustic covers of The Smiths or something.
Title: Re: The off-topic Topic
Post by: Krakow Sam on May 18, 2017, 10:13:46 am
It works if there's an emotional connection established with the actual show or movie.

Obviously it works just great in Guardians of the Galaxy. 80s pop fits the tone of the movie perfectly and it's directly connected with the main character.


In the case of Westworld if I recall all the pop music featured is Scott Bradlee style low-fi covers using period instruments, which means someone had to make the effort to arrange and record those covers and it adds to the anachronistic themes in the show.

The problem is laziness, like it's always been.  :P

Post by: eropS on May 19, 2017, 01:57:40 pm
Sure, I can understand being under stress. I cannot understand releasing that upon those I claim to care about in a way that would do the most damage in the quickest way possible to the most amount of those who I claimed to care for. So sure, as someone who I used to care for, I hope he as a human being is doing well, but im still upset yo, haha

What's there to make worse, the whole thing's in ruins, just gotta rebuild the content as it came the first time, through discussion of **** we want to talk about.

I'm sorry I keep bringing this back like I'm dwelling but I do still have a sense like someone in my surrogate family hurt everyone in the family and bailed and that edge will stay with me for a bit until I have moved on, unfortunately.

i'd probably hate being there too though i don't know maybe not

I practically live off of caffeine, without it I'm like a comatose zombie half the time. Ha, 'health'. The low-carb Monsters are like my lifeblood, kidneys be damned.


On an unrelated note, I try to pop back in every so often, even if I don't say much if anything. Not sure how ginger I should be here but I did NOT expect to see the boards coming up a few topics lighter.

Caffeine makes me jittery and shaky, and makes me feel tired while simultaneously removing my ability to sleep.

I really only drink it if there's an actual danger of me falling asleep doing something, which is pretty rare.

Forgetting it is the same as forgetting it.
Which is what happened.

Or does owning a dictionary mean I know the definition of every English word?

Knowing how to google isn't the same as remembering everything on the internet.

In fact if anyone knows how to contact him, I'd like to say hi myself.

So if anyone can drop him a message that I'd like to be in contact again, that would be great.

There are many options.

cause it ain't "science" fiction - sci-fi is meant to imagine consequences of technological and scientific advances and how they impact society

it's often considered "science fantasy" which is a blend of sci fi and fantasy

It's strange to me this thread hasn't been touched in two weeks (I'm back for my bi-monthly attempt at posting, whee!) but if you take the science part off entirely, Star Wars is most definitely more fantasy than fiction, and it's definitely more 'sciencey' in comparison to more fantastical stuff like LOTR, say

If any of ya'll think it's time for a change and are willing to uproot to Seattle, we have very much a need for a baker, or someone who has a brain who can learn to be a baker and hopefully also enjoy it. We will pay mid 30s, which for the area admittedly won't get you super far but you won't be eating ramen every night. You'll basically be making cookie dough, baking cookies, delivering cookies to our store, and being responsible for coming up with a new cookie each month preferably. Ours left this month to go back to live with family in another state and my partner feels up against the wall, :\

PM or discord or reach out if you are interested. I'm unable to provide any sort of shelter so that'd also be on you if you decided to make the leap,


Edit: okay he found someone from our current employee reference, we were that desperate to get someone in there to help it seems :/  if it doesn't work out I'll keep ya posted

But I don't even like sitcoms.

Also I managed to escape my custom built purgatory and got a new job, forgot to mention it.

Erops, you should look around and see if there's a temp or job placement place that covers your industry, for the next time you need to fill a spot fast.  I have no idea if that's a thing for bakeries/restaurants specifically, but it seems like something worth checking.  Have you done much networking or reached out to any small business stuff in the area?  There may be advice and resources available that we wouldn't know to think of.

My friend gave me some shrooms and I realised that people form their idea of me based on a few short exchanges. No one knows what my life is actually like. They just know what I was like the few times they talked to me.

Just came to mind that people probably base their opinions of me on stuff that are completely meaningless to me, but it may be the only thing they remember about me since they were around at that time. But for me, tons of stuff has happened since then. Something that seems to me to have been ages ago may be the most recent memory about me to someone.

Shrooms are one thing I'd like to try myself as well. There've been studies done, and psilocybin gives you about an extra half a standard deviation of "Openness to Experience", which is the psychological dimension corresponding roughly to things like creativity, curiosity, and receptiveness to emotional experiences. Based just on that, they're the only drug I'm aware of that might legitimately be called "mind-expanding". Hard to get in the states, yeah.

Hey Irish people, you okay after Ophelia?

Here in Dublin it was pretty disappointing. Huge fuss in the city, people here didn't know what to expect at all. Went into work and everyone was complaining that everyone else they knew had had their work cancelled. Eventually the boss came in to a sea of displeased faces and made the call. All public transport got suspended for the day a couple hours later so it was a good thing - I would've been stuck.

But then it came and it sucked/blew (I was hoping for something a little more dramatic), it was real windy but not dangerously so. We did lose our doormat though. RIP. We also lost power from 9pm to midnight.

My dad was down south in rural Cork and it was way worse there, it blew the roof off a school. The country had three deaths, all from falling trees.

Yesterday the weather was back to being perfectly normal, except the trees are noticeably more bare than before.

And we have "Storm Brian" coming over the weekend, too! Thanks, climate change!

You know what that means?

Because I don't. I don't know what anything means anymore. I took a quiz to tell me what kind of quiz I was and it told me I was a dumb quiz. The world is and has always been confusing.

Also please don't let this community die.

I know it's slightly more work than some places, but it's the only place online I don't feel like my participation is being soul-crushingly gamified by a points/likes system, or picked apart for a corporate branding agenda, or the political machinations of Russian internet trolls or someone else.

A lot of the huge other social sites leave me with this weird sick unsatisfied empty feeling, like everyone's competing and trying to destroy each other and there's no warmth.

We have had our ups, downs, problems, and undeniable drama here. It's not as fast paced as some other places. But I genuinely feel better after spending time here than I do sooo many places online. I don't know.

A crowd-sourced, algorithm based editorial voice isn't necessarily bad, but it gets reaaaal tiresome and repetitive.
I want this place, flaws and all.

Discord is fairly active. It's not the same, but communities evolve. I'm enjoying the immediacy of the conversation there.

Oh hey it is November!
You know what that means?

Because I don't. I don't know what anything means anymore. I took a quiz to tell me what kind of quiz I was and it told me I was a dumb quiz. The world is and has always been confusing.

Also please don't let this community die.

I know it's slightly more work than some places, but it's the only place online I don't feel like my participation is being soul-crushingly gamified by a points/likes system, or picked apart for a corporate branding agenda, or the political machinations of Russian internet trolls or someone else.

I agree wholeheartedly. Posting on Reddit just kills my soul. This place warms my heart.

That's why lately I've been subscribing to subbreddits of animals being adorable. It helps.

I haven't played Cuphead, but if at least one villain or attack move isn't named "The Cup Holder" I will be severely disappointed.

Well, I just finished reading Paradise Lost, which took me the better part of 3 months (mostly because I went on a working holiday for a month). So I wanted to pick up some light reading. But nowhere had the next Star Wars book I need to read, Dark Disciple.

So I picked up To Kill A Mockingbird, because I've never read it, and I'm almost done with it.

i'm reading 2 (well, like 8, going back three years, but...) books at the moment

homo deus (which i believe sam also read), which is a book about anthropology and the future of humans

la belle sauvage, which, admittedly, is kind of for kids - it's the first book of a new trilogy in the setting of the his dark materials trilogy (the northern lights/golden compass, the subtle knife, the amber spyglass)
