So you've gone from building the future to staring at ancient history. What a trip!

All I see is an endless ocean of dumb. It's scarier than any conspiracy. At least with a conspiracy shit is happening for a reason. It might not be one you agree with but at least it makes sense.

Be still my throbbing heart! And her vital statistics?

Maybe it was the name. Not totally convinced attaching a gender prefix is helpful in this instance. "assplaining" might have worked better

That was awesome.

Exactly this!

There's always an awkwardness dealing with someone's grief for me. Maybe for a lot of people. Having been a griever on occasion, I'm not sure anything anyone said would have helped but it didn't stop them trying. I don't remember anyone saying anything that made me feel worse, I mean I've hit bottom, right? Nowhere left to go from there. At least I knew those people cared, even if I didn't care if they did, right then.

You're right, tho. The constant "How you holding up?" shit gets old fast. Especially when I realize that I'd just managed to think about something else for the first time in days and now I'm right back there, with a side order of guilt cos I forgot for a second but then the triggers aren't limited to just people asking how I am. In the grand scheme of things they're a drop in the ocean.

Anyone who takes the hump cos you're -something out of character- with them at a time like this, doesn't really deserve much in the way of consideration IMO.

That last guy who left? That fucking guy :horrormirth:

is the assumption, from out of the blue, that the person being explained to has no pre-existing knowledge of the subject

This is definitely a thing. I'd wrongly assumed it was fucking hilarious so I stand corrected on that point. I also wasn't aware it was only men who did this to women so it's good we now have a descriptive name for the phenomenon to clear that up.

Gribetz comes The Smiler at times but I'm stoked for this tech, regardless. I reckon the people currently saying this is the next platform shift are bang on the money.

Thanks. Kinda liked writing it. Just flowed, didn't even know what it was to begin with. Words kind of popped in my head first and led to the memory, later.

Story is I'm six months or a year into being broken up from ExT4gR4m and so's my mate "Yeti" and we've reconnected after years apart and carried on like we did when we was 18 - mainly booze and pot and being unemployed and f'kin miserable. So one night (can't remember which) I'm like "Wilderness. Wilderness and Tequilla." and Yeti is like "Yeah, fuck it"

So we're pretty wasted by the time we climb into a couple of kayaks and I remember paddling out to an island with a pub on it and then it's the next day and I wake up, lying on a beach, f'kin no idea how. I literally cannot even. There's voices and some people are getting in a boat on the shore and trying to act all cool in front of the kids whilst still conveying an urgency to leave. Sun was baking, nearly noon but I vaguely remember a thunderstorm last night. No idea where Yeti is but there's only one boat on the beach.

No worries, I look down to find I'm cradling half a litre of Jose and fresh orange mix like a newborn baby. Breathe a sigh of relief. No need to deal with any of this shit right now.

I kind of come and go with pot. Like I'll smoke regular for a bit then get bored with the headspace and quit for months or years but with booze it never gets boring.

I guess I have pot-brake but not booze brake  :)

... on some pretty nice bud


Look at me I here I can hardly walk
I can hardly move I can barely talk
Open my eyes but I'm blind to see
the horrible truth staring back at me

Listen to me sing and see me dance
Swallowing my hate and spitting out romance
All you ever get when you play this game
is a shot of regret f'kin drowning in pain

Happy ever after never paid the rent
After turned to this as the happy got spent
There was fire in the sky all fighting with the smog
raining black tears on a dead stray dog

Not to call it negative it is what it is
Cracking under pressure but I made it like this
Can't remember how so at least I got that
Still aint seen the wreckage but I'm guessing it's bad

People on the beach, steer their kids the hell away
turned up in a cruiser but they didn't wanna stay
Memory or dreaming couldn't tell the two apart
Numb and sweet oblivion an aching in my heart

Grabbed a chunk of paradise and turned it into hell
Motherfucken alchemist disaster for a spell
No idea how I got here but I'm half a mile from shore
It's eleven in the morning and I gotta have some more

A world of wonders awaits you. Healthy REM sleep, improved memory and concentration, freedom from constant, low grade background depression...

The only problem is this nagging little voice in the back of my head that gets louder whenever I'm near a pub or off-license or even just a bit bored, yelling "PARTY TIME - DO EET!!!"
