Can't say how long I'll last here again, but if the OKP is still around this time next year, I'll have plenty of time to ruminate as I used to.

:wave:


i am so vibing on instrumental bands anymore. explosions in the sky and tycho. pretty far from classical but i am definitely down with trying to communicate some story or feeling without words. same reason i love teh phesh jamz so much. plus without words no one is telling you what to feel or imagine you get to make it your own ;)

I seriously thought my eyes were deceiving me when I saw the name Fone as the most recent poster. Or that it was an old page or something. Bill!! Glad to see you here! You are the long lost OKP'er I wonder most about.

I very much understand where you're coming from with work and mush mind/desire to zone. Seems like it's the story of my life, except my retirement is a few decades away.

Thanks for popping in. I expect it's because you heard my call from the Katiemay birthday thread. Hope all is well with Marie and the family.

Can't explain my absence at all. I could use getting older as an excuse and finding that everything seems to take more time than it used to, or that I don't seem to be getting as excited by things as I used to,

Good to hear from you, sir.

I seem to remember you mentioning how there was a change in your job where you couldn't get on OKP while at work like before. It's funny how these habits are so essential to use keeping up on these things and, when they change, it's hard to get back to it...I tend to not go on any of these sites when I'm at home too unless there's a show on that night.

I take back everything bad I have ever said about LaVar Ball. The man is a hero, and a national treasure.

He's doing the same he's always done...saying anything to get headlines. Dude's a genius.

The Tide Pod challenge is just about the craziest fad I can remember, but I did get some serious chuckles out of it. Below is a short reimagining of Roald Dahl's classic "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory."

Being up for something and down for something are the same thing.

Still not over that yet.

Sometimes I question my logic in buying expensive equipment in order to get that perfectly shit sound, when I could go for the cheaper option and have that genuinely shit sound by buying shit equipment. Its the process isn't it. I'm a fucking knob for process.

^That stuff makes me glad that I can rarely tell the difference between "bad audio" and "good audio." Saves me a lot of money and heartache.

^ At one point I thought it was necessary to buy more expensive bottles of wine. One day I realized that my palate isn't refined enough to distinguish between merlot and pino noir, so how the fuck would I be able to tell the difference between an expensive bottle and a cheap bottle? It was at this moment that I stopped buying wine that costs more than $5 dollars a bottle.

I'm the same way. I can't tell at all. I just get mine from local sellers since it's not like I know if it's good or not and I can brag about supporting someone local.

I'm the same with music quality...I have no idea what the difference is between bad audio and good audio is so I'll take it however I can.

Boo-berry doesn't count. Right?

I remember rushing to answer the phone ... especially before the invention of the answering machine ... now that the phone is in my pocket all day I rarely answer calls.

^I still answer them all since, even if it's spam, I want to make sure so I can then Call Block their ass. A fine invention.
