Since we seem to have a lot of people in a state of longing, crossroads, and coming out and wanting more from things that aren't going to offer it, here's my go-to song for that feeling:
I'm unclear about the weird riff she adds in the middle about "You want to hit me, boy!" etc., heh.
Saw a recent thread with people questioning Sam2000's identity, whether he's really 12, etc. So, just want to point out that this issue will not continue.
I understand that it is human nature to be skeptical of things that seem amiss, and in an environment like Oasis, where things don't seem to add up, and there is really no means of proof, you can't really resolve it.
So, there's no riddle to unwind here. Everyone is what they say they are online.
Heads up... if you like Oprah, and you like me, why not experience both at the same time?
On Monday, at 8p ET, you can! Tune in to OWN, the Oprah Winfrey Network, and you can see Oprah, Tony Robbins, and possibly, ME in the audience at Radio City Music Hall!
What will I ask Oprah? Find out!
Site had died. Site is risen. Site will crash again.
Job ended in California. Moved back to PA. Road-tripped to Texas for Christmas. Got sick. Sickness just ending. Now it's time to look for work and a place to stay in NYC, which also means I'll be online a bit more...
Place seems to have not imploded, heh.
Just Dave's post just reminded me that Oasis has a birthday coming up.
On December 1, Oasis will have its Sweet 16 (apologies to the Latino/as, as we never had its quinceanera last year).
So, the site is finally older than many of its members, yet I never age. Go figure!
Just a heads up that I am moving from California to (not quite) NYC by the end of this month, so I'll be offline more than usual...
Then I'll be at my parent's place in PA in advance of making the real move to NYC in January.
So, send a pm if you really need anything, as I may miss some content...
So, looks like I'll be in Seattle this weekend. Arrive Saturday afternoon, fly back to SF on Tuesday morning.
If anyone around there wants to get together, grab a coffee, whatever, let me know. No plans as of yet, may hit Bumbershoot one day yet, not sure.
I don't plan stuff too heavily in advance. Hadn't reached my friend up there until this morning, so wasn't sure I was going to get on the plane if he wasn't going to be around, heh.
been a few random threads on evolution, "Creationism," and such lately. Just saw this on the Washington Post, where Richard Dawkins answered a question about Texas Governor Rick Perry wanting to teach both theories, etc., and this part stood out as rather elegant:
I can't stop watching this.
Well, booked my way out of town for the weekend, so no fighting!
I'll be off gambling, drinking and seeing Barry Manilow and Donny & Marie!
This was supposed to be a response to Magic Fantastic on another thread, but I delayed too long, so I figured I'd give it more visibility. The gist was that he has to decide things now that will determine his future career, etc., and it is the usual 'what I love' versus 'what makes sense' that many people go through. So, here's my take on that...
Growing up, I wanted to write novels. Or screenplays. Or anything creative. It was definitely more of an aspirational thing, as I wasn't one of these people who were always telling and making up stories. But that was definitely the idea.
I'm off to a long weekend in Texas, and not going to be online much...
You may have noticed that I'm not around much, and when I am it is mainly for some background task like deleting spam, etc.
Lots going on, which you can read here if you're so inclined.
I caught some glimpses of conversations about Oasis and popularity contests and not as many people online anymore, etc.
I like it when the girls stop by, in the summer... do you remember?
