[Evening] Comfy dinner talk.

1 Name: Anonymous : 2018-09-27 21:57
Good evening, everyone.

Grab some tea or dinner and lets talk about today.

How was your day?

I ended up getting drunk.

I went to see a play with my partner and then had a lovely Italian pasta dinner. Afterwards we had another drink at a quaint wine cellar and then went home to play some games.

work was. summer is swinging around again. seems like there's a lot more bird activity than usual. relaxing after dinner. niceness.

it was really shitty. I tried going to some lectures, but I couldn't handle all the people and had to leave. Ended up coming home and getting drunk, amongst other things.
That said, I did go and see a live performance of Le Tombeau de Couperin, which was really nice. I found a place at the back not too close to everyone else. Was free too.

Anyway OP, why do you never talk about yourself? I feel like I'm the only one who ever spills his beans

I'm getting all 4 of my wisdom teeth removed tomorrow. I'm very nervous about it.

I had a couple of teeth removed when I was a little kid, but I don't remember it very well. Do they just anesthetize you and pull them out?

Removing 4 wisdom teeth at once is a pretty serious intrusion so they might put him under general anesthesia, yes.

I removed 3 wisdom teeth last summer by doing one every 10-14 days and it wasn't much harder than fixing cavities. Did you decide to remove them all at once by yourself?
12 Name: Anonymous : 2018-10-12 16:28
I hear removing teeth can be a lot easier now than before. Never had to remove any wisdom teeth myself, and they're all fully grown. I guess I can thank my big mouth for that.

I had all of my wisdom teeth removed at once and there were no problems at all during the procedure

the only bad part was that the painkillers made me feel really weird (combination of feeling high and spaced out) and then I posted some embarrassing/weird shit on social media

Not bad, went downtown and bought some heroin got high and a bit later went for a walk in the park. The leaves are changing color already it looks pretty and the weather was pleasantly cool.

heroin is bad, please get help for that

It's ok. Heroin itself is pretty harmless, its addiction that you gotta worry about and luckily right now I am not addicted anymore.

Had the best birthday party ever. My bestest friend gave me an American MRE because they knew I'm so into Steve1989MREinfo, and then we danced the night away on MDMA in my bedroom.

I really like walking aimlessly through the snow. The cold makes me feel numb - like I'm not here anymore.

Up and down kind of day, it started off pretty well with errands and gift wrapping, but then I started feeling really shit. Realized I'm probably coming down with a cold. Rested and complained to the SO for a while before they ordered dinner and I felt a lot better with some hot tea.
Making a pie now so overall it worked out and I want to get to bed early to rest up.

I took photos in a harbor during a snow storm all day. It was wonderful.

Baking at night is magical.
Also why haven't anyone told me fried bread and fried sausage sandwich is so tasty.
27 Name: Anonymous : 2018-12-22 08:49

That sounds delicious. What kind of sausage? What condiments or sauces?
28 Name: Anonymous : 2018-12-22 14:39

Bologna, no condies or sauces, just fried bread (fresh, thick slices, both sides, on a dry pan) and fried bologna (both sides, a tiny splash of oil) in-between.
Using the following bread recipe, it always turns out great.

It was a disaster 10 years in the making, but they'll be shutting geocities.jp down in March 2019. I'll be busy helping archiveteam, and running some private backup operations.

Not a very comfy subject, I know. But this is a nice way to spend winter break.

That is unfortunate. I feel like every aspect of Web 1.0 is fading into obscurity. I have even heard that 2chan in Japan is getting replaced by Reddit and Twitter, but I could be speaking from ignorance here. Hope the archiving goes well.

The plain, simple web is pretty much gone. Everything's shitty "single page" webapps thrown together with mountains of javascript frameworks built for the sole purpose of datamining and advertising.

What I miss the most is the mediocre web. Say what you will about Flash and its vulnerabilities, but sites like Newgrounds had the atmosphere that everyone, even people who knew nothing at all about art or programming were making their own art, video games, and music to share with everyone. The most they could expect was a couple cents from a preload ad. Now everyone has patreon and adsense, turning their hobby into their job. The only site remotely similar to Newgrounds is YouTube, and people don't make content there for fun anymore. Even if they did, they either drown in the sea of "professional" video essays, or become "professionals" on patreon themselves.

Nothing on the Internet can be mediocre anymore. And as a result nothing feels like it has any heart, because some 15 year old kid making his own poorly drawn universe cannot be replicated by charlatan vloggers and video essayists. Instead of mediocre content that feels high quality, we get high quality content that feels mediocre.

Every time I talk about this, people smugly tell me I have on rose-tinted goggles. "Don't you remember how SLOW the Internet used to be?!" or the worst of all, "you're only remembering the good stuff, there was bad stuff then too!"

I tire of these losers who just don't get it. I don't think everything then was good, I think that there were real communities then. The web didn't exist to be datamined. We didn't get 98% of our content from 4 websites. It was a glitch in the matrix, an ephemeral spark of real humanity that we aren't allowed to have anymore.

Sorry for rambling.

That was a good ramble; don't apologize for it.
As much as I like how easy and convenient it is to find just about anything on the modern net, I too miss the heart of the old days.
When I was 14 or so, I had a Tripod page. It was terrible of course, but it amused me. It feels like nobody make things on the internet purely for their own amusement any more.

There's a pretty nice essay about this (although more generally about amateurism): https://www.nytimes.com/2018/09/29/opinion/sunday/in-praise-of-mediocrity.html
Lost here is the gentle pursuit of a modest competence, the doing of something just because you enjoy it, not because you are good at it. Hobbies, let me remind you, are supposed to be something different from work. But alien values like “the pursuit of excellence” have crept into and corrupted what was once the realm of leisure, leaving little room for the true amateur.

Today I blasted through some phonology homework, cleaned the bathroom, downloaded the Mona font so AA art werks on my machine, got started on some historical linguistics, texted my gf, and ate some meatballs.

I missed dinner, since I've been suffering from a bout of insomnia lately, so I'm currently drinking tea and sorting/downloading music.

>>33
>>35
I've actually never considered this, but you both are absolutely right. The community that speaks to me in this particular regard is the Module(.mod/.xm) Music scene. Lots of great amateur music and friendships were forged there. And we didn't need to obsess over mastering and EQ for 1000 years. Now I find that I haven't been able to make music without feeling overwhelmed by the sound tweaking meta.

I'm of two minds on the "pursuit of excellence". On the one hand I like hitting flow states once I've achieved a level of mastery over something, but I also like dipping my toes into a million different hobbies just for the sake of exploration. I do agree that we refuse to allow ourselves true leisure time without trying to squeeze some sort of "worth" out of it.

Would you be willing to share those photos? I live in the desert so it never snows here since there's hardly any precipitation and I haven't seen wonderful snow in a very long time.

I set out to be really productive today, but a headache foiled my plans. It's not even a bad one, just enough so I can't concentrate.

Was a pretty standard day. Woke up at around 9, did cardio for 45 minutes, and checked to see if company approved job offer they are gonna send me. Corporate can sure be slow on approving things.

thank you for sharing this article. this and a related article linked within "The Case for Having a Hobby" https://www.nytimes.com/2018/05/10/smarter-living/the-case-for-hobbies-ideas.html fully changed my perspective on how I view my time outside of work. damn.
