  1. Frontier Psychiatrist (Single) The Avalanches. 2000.
  2. Ok, a little background. (Rant not entirely relevant. Skip to bold below for thread.) 2-3 years ago, I used to spend a lot of time on the internet. No big deal, I guess. But I spent all my time here...every waking moment. It was most of my life. Now, still, not entirely out of the ordinary. especially for someone who at the time war 14-15 years old and not entirely popular outside of his own little world. The difference was, for one, I was literate. Seeing that text was the dominant medium of communication on the internet, my lack of social skills and relative superiority over others my own age, in terms of writing, meant that I overshadowed my peers and even came across as older than them. Of course, at the time I was sheltered. I didn't venture beyond, into the harsh backwaters of the internet. In time, I did. I found what it was actually full of. Cretins, creatures without any sense of civilised discourse or humanity. And that was the best of it. Upon returning to my previously hallowed websites I saw that I was surrounded by mewling infants intent of lying their way to attention, every remark false and mulled upon for hours before typing. Of course, I was guilty of the same time. So at the time, I snapped. To several communities, I made a statement, mostly coarse and vulgar, and left. And I return, a few years later, and I find that the web hasn't got any better. It is still populated seemingly entirely by wealthy pre-teens with a penchant for illiteracy. it is still a safe haven for liars and frauds in the pursuit of attention and sympathy, and it is still a petty, gross shell of what it possibly could have been. Nothing has changed. So. I am going to ask you...have you ever fallen out of love with the internet? And if not...why not?

And it seems this guy will be doing a Request For Adminship soon...Hm. *Returns, fedora-tipped into the night*

I just didn't like the fact that someone would join ST just to come on here and tell us how ignorant and insignificant we are; that's not what this site is for.

  5. Save Simtropolis on Wikipedia!

    I performed one of the recent "cuts", removing a lot of the cruft. Folks, this is a great site with a lot of community, but a lot of that article is frankly pap. Guys. It's a 4 year old game. There are plenty of good communities out there with fantastic communities, but in the future, will people need to know? Do people need to know NOW?
  6. The New Moose Factory - Virtual Bar & Grill

    Working at Tesco is hideous! Every moment I spend there is like a further part of my soul being wrenched from my body. And, to top it off, admin have told me I won't get paid until the 15th now, so I missed last payday (I started working there just a few days too late...). Which means I have a grand total of

  15. The Simtropolis Closet

    Easy for me. I sometimes break into 'I feel pretty' quite randomly. That's also quite calming, but probably not in the same way.
