How do you measure 19 years?

I feel compelled to write some reflections on the occasion of Oasis shutting down after 19 years, but it’s hard to find the right words.

I’m 46 now, and 27 when I started this site in 1995, so it seems like there should be some profound summation or insightful conclusion, especially when you consider that this site launched the same year as Amazon, and three years before Google.

But that’s probably why the right sentiment eludes me. The world has changed so much since then, and so much for the better, that Oasis no longer having a major role to play is cause for celebration. Not sadness.

Oasis countdown...

As of today:

Countdown Clocks

At that point, the site will become static.

What this mean is that on December 1 (or thereabouts), you will no longer be able to log in to Oasis. At some point after December 1, the site will come back online as a static record, but probably not completely intact.

9 days and counting

As I right this there are only nine days left until oasis closes. I purpose we all come to this website on the day it closes and right a final good bye entry. Just a suggestion. Does any one know any similar websites? I suppose this website is closing down due to recent rise in popularity of other social media so I'm looking for something similar to replace it ( not that any one could truly recreate such a website)

E T N A H (No Pussyfooting)

I don't really know where to start with this, but I've been doing some thinking about him, going on some walks alone. Ever since around September of last year, I've been getting really negative feelings about and because of him, and I've just been wqlkig them off.

More dreams about hallucinogens

I've been dreaming about consuming Psilocybin mushrooms more frequently. I don't know why, I've never had interest in them, but they've been appearing in my most recent dreams. Last night I was at an outdoor concert with a lot of my friends, and someone gave me some Psilocybin, which I immediately consumed. It didn't give me any hallucinations, but it did cause me to mostly lose control of my actions; it actually seemed to have more of an alcoholic effect on me than anything else.
