right hold on
 
first of all that's crazy, warped. i don't even want to hint at the possibility he's not telling the truth for your sake, but at the same time i dunno...if there's a doubt in your mind...'according to him it was made up'...worrisome business.
 
and your dad was in true detective? is your dad steve the drunk? the old silent detective guy? who is he!!!

earl i was thinking of doing some kind of talking about video for true detective anyway. if you wanna do a little bookclub thing for tv shows then i'll post in video form + normal.
 
i think it's a nice idea even. i don't expect anyone to really post in it, because people don't do that here anymore, but it's worth giving it a start and seeing if there's a little group of people who actually take part.

I'm only going to give you two hints about who in true detective I am referring to.
 
1.) Don't expect you are going to see my dad right away, but once you do I think you could tell immediately he is exactly the guy I was talking about.
 
2.) If I gave you any more of a hint than that, it would most likely count as spoilers. (plus I have only just started watching the series myself as of typing up this post, so ATM I can't really even GIVE more of a hint than that)
 
But yeah, if the book-club style online viewing party thing is going to turn out being a thing, I will hold out on watching too far ahead. (I do hate cliffhangers, but having access to the episodes counteracts that JUST enough for me to be indefinitely patient about actually watching those episodes)

I think people can tell who woody harrelson's character is.
 
@warp yeah, porn addiction is serious and destructive. hopefully it's a wakeup call for him. I know you're trying to get out of there and move to a city, hopefully sooner than later. feel free to ask for advice
 
@TV I'm down, wanna set up the format here first? what sounds good, like one episode a day or every other day, or more time between? maybe discussing it here will cut down on the desire to search for conversations elsewhere and run into spoilers, which kind of ruined part of it for me.

yeah I generally spend too much time looking around for conversations about things I'm watching and have to endure a lot of filth which I wish I didn't really have in my brain. I think I've talked about that before. So talking about things here would be better.
 
I guess people want to watch true detective? I've seen it all, I watched it as it was on, but I'd like an excuse to make some videos about it just cos I like making videos and I wouldn't do spoilers in em. I've just downloaded all of Hannibal. I've seen the first two episodes, and honestly, so far I hate it and think it's terrible, but I'm curious as to why it's getting such a positive response so I want to watch along for at least the first season. I guess game of thrones and mad men will be starting in the next couple of weeks, too. I'll be watching both of them and I'd like to talk about mad men at least.

Yeah, we've probably talked about it before. This is really the only good place on the internet I've ever had to discuss media and read other people's opinions. Browsing the net otherwise, you're definitely going to run into really stupid thoughts alongside the usual bigoted bull. I even read an interview with the creator/writer, and ofc he makes the series sound a whole lot dumber than I thought it was. I hate these over-informed useless opinions the internet makes everyone have and I'm tired of other people's garbage making everything worse than it is.

Sorry. I almost browse the web entrely by RSS feeds now with few exceptions. I find that I check sites without RSS a lot less often. Maybe that could be something to implement? An RSS feed for new posts?

I know deep down that making games and music are things I enjoy the most and visiting here used to be captivating but honestly I just cannot be bothered doing either any more.
 
I'm not sure but I think this is what happens when your day job destroys you as a person.

I haven't had a memorable dream in a long time, but last night I had a long one. it was some kind of huge evening get-together with a ton of people from my high school, yawn etc - the interesting part is that you were supposed to come in costume, not halloween monster costumes or anything, but dress like a 50s reporter or whatever. I intrinsically knew I had to go as Miley Cyrus (present-era & not as a joke on any level), and that there would be a lot of  difficulties and hurdles in the way of achieving this goal. as I was planning the costume before-hand I knew I could get ridiculed for dressing as a woman, but I reasoned if I could look just like her people would be too caught up in how accurate an impression it is it is to criticize.

before the event I was planning and getting the materials together. it was going really well. I had shades and little shiny earrings that looked great, but the baseball cap wasn't doing it...but wait, if I push it back on my head and flip the brim up, puffing my hair out the front a little, I look just like Miley. the rest of the outfit was really important too, though I'm not sure I've ever seen the real Miley Ray Cyrus dress anything like it. it was sort of a mix of punk and hip hop and chic fashion. an incomprehensible black top & jacket, ambiguous bracelets. the jeans were super important, high-wasted skinny jeans that, combined with my black patent heels and showing bare ankle, looked to me exactly like Miley's legs(?)
 
still, when I got to the event I was fucking unprepared and had a big ol stressful time trying to put together the finishing touches for it to be perfect, or else I wouldn't look like miley at all I would just look like garbage. it was a big mall/school-like complex, and I went in a holistic healing/head shop owned by a girl I went to high school with to use their disgusting public bathroom (a recurring theme in my dreams if ur new to these). at this point I realized my neck was incredibly hairy and needed to be shaved. my alarm woke me up but I went back to sleep to make sure I shaved my entire neck to the hairline and got back to my friends at their table, looking like an extremely good impression of miley cyrus. then it was ok to wake up.

also in my dream miley was the ideal human being to me, like MA's David or an ubermensch or something. it kind of sounds like a bad joke a snot-nosed kid would make, but it's true. they play her songs at work sometimes, but otherwise idrk what that's all about!

I recently had a dream where I found out that my dad was a 150 years old robot. He had to erase the older parts of his memory so that he wouldn't accidentally start talking about his experiences during world war I or something. That's all I remember. I'm sure there is some deep interpretation to this

who the fuck is your dad that crazy antler head guy?
 
that is wicked awesome.
 
I went to brazil which is a gigantic shithole and landed right before they closed down the airport and invaded it with military convoy, some drilling company bigwig got his head lopped off with a machete riding in a taxi (mugging attempt or success I don't know). Almost got washed over the side of the ship by a bigass freak wave. And got home right before all the transit in rio got shutdown and it turned into a chaotic mass of brazilians inside the metro system. Now I'm in ft. lauderdale getting first responder training which apparently includes learning how to deliver a baby.
