But alas... instead I decided to be active on Twitter. For promotional purposes. That was dumb.

Figure this place will be sparsely populated for a little while until word gets out that we're back. Then eventually cats will be back.

Anywho, at least I've been busy being creative on other fronts.

Still doing the Return to Zero podcast with OKP Squeeg. Still playing hip-hop:

https://www.mixcloud.com/returntozero/

Still doing the writing thing for Albumism.com.

Tribute to 30th anniversary of "No One Can Do It Better" - https://www.albumism.com/features/the-doc-debut-album-no-one-can-do-it-better-turns-30-anniversary-retrospective

Tribute to 30th anniversary of "Unfinished Business" - https://www.albumism.com/features/epmd-unfinished-business-turns-30-anniversary-retrospective

Let's see, concert-wise, hit up that Wu-Tang/De La/Eric B. & Rakim/Pharcyde show earlier this summer. Going to see Herbie Hancock and Kamasi Washington in few weeks.

Finally, as a general plea for help for a good dude, the homie Paten Locke is dealing with stage 4 cancer. His friends have started a gofundme to help his family, if you get a chance and have the inclination to do a good deed, hit it up at www.planetlocke.com. Anything helps.

Peace.

the boards had been down for so long -- longest I can ever remember, so that's what, 18 years for me -- that I stopped checking anymore.

of course now I'm posting in this thread, so

Did it at least 5 times every work day w/o thinking. Even had to refresh when it was up today to make sure I wasn't going crazy. Sorta glad it's back and sorta came to terms with this site's death already... but will I ever leave on my own? Unlikely.

...is that digital spaces, in general, have gotten
exponentially dumber and more hateful during this site's
existence. Meanwhile, this site has remained mostly the
same (except for less popular and older).

So your attraction to this place is understandable:
people are relatively smart and decent here.

It's just funny because I spent years here calling everyone
ignorant and dumb. Mostly joking, but still: I had no idea
what the rest of the internet world was like.

Like I said in my post below, you don't wanna find yourself in 99% of the cfb message boards around the net. This place is a safe haven. Props to everyone for keeping it that way.

the relative anonymity that most of us have make it all the more impressive that the testiest of exchanges pale in comparison to shit that goes on on FB and the like

From 2015 on I keep thinking "Surely it's impossible for Twitter to get worse", and yet, it always does. The discourse around the 2020 election is already frighteningly dumb and we still have a long way to go.

I was so starved for intelligent sports convo, I cannot stand any of the talking heads/"insiders" on ESPN and FOX. They flip-flop more than politicians

some of the team subreddits are OK if only a lil "homey" (which is to be expected)

but the league boards: r/nba, r/nfl, etc. yeah... dumpster fire

some of the team subs are basically making fun of the league subs.

because drink stirrer-style agendas would never survive over there.

the coalition of fan bases is hilarious too.

r/ClevelandCavs was my favorite place to go for live games, especially in 2018... every "LEFUCKYOU 3" was documented

11. "I was gonna be legit bummed for fall saturdays without okp"
In response to Reply # 0

I watch exponentially less sports than I did in my younger days so I spend much less time on this site as a result. And there are a lot of different reasons for why I watch less sports. Not the least of which is that my pro teams are Giants/Mets/Knicks. Enough said.

But with less time devoted to sports throughout the year I feel less guilty in going EXTRA hard on cfb...so my ass is glued on the couch on saturdays from noon until Pac after dark shuts it down. The back and forth here is a really good companion to that. Overall people know their stuff, there's just the right amount of shit talking to make things fun, the homerism isn't over the top, and most importantly we can talk cfb without disturbing levels of ignorance, racism and the like. If you've been around other cfb message boards you know that that kind of shit is pretty standard issue and a big part of the demographic of this sport, unfortunately. So anyways, I'm glad this place is back up and running just in time for kickoff in a few weeks.

In response to Reply # 11

Had me legit sad that I wouldn’t be able to spend my Saturdays BSing with the people in here about CFB.

I’m glad it’s back in time for CFB because this site has the best group of CFB fans. As you said, this site has the right amount of knowledgeable fans that aren’t over the top homers and genuinely like CFB for the sport just as much for their team. That’s why I wake up early to watch random ACC and Big 10 games at 9am PST and the TV doesn’t turn off until PAC 12 After Dark is over.

I also spend less time watching sports as well but just like this site, I just can’t quite CFB.

a second that gave me hope that they might be working on something but as the weeks went on I started to lose hope but still checked almost every day.

With the explosions in the NBA and not being able to talk about it here with semi-knowledgeable NBA fans were killing me.

Twitter is OK, but I adjust my "style" for the "shout at the TV screen" format that place has. but man, it's more about the lulz over there.

our lulz are a different type

I am entirely certain of this.

Now, I will return to tentative enjoyment of their season mixed with the creeping awareness that there are several better teams they may face as soon as the first round of the playoffs - if they don't trip on their own dick on the way there.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

partially inspired by a trip to Taiwan I took a few months ago, but mostly just because I think I'm entering my midlife crisis and need a way to keep my brain sharp and make life slightly more interesting.

Anyway, I say "conversational" because I have no interest in becoming completely fluent or learning the characters. So far so good though.

It's crazy how great this place is


I checked the link every damn day, multiple times.


And to think that I used to come here to check to music as part of a publication that has long since ceased to exist…but yeah, this is easily my favorite online community. One of the only ones I really participate in at all. Yet it's also a link to a completely different time in my life that would be hard to explain to anyone I know now.


Very happy it's not gone yet.

In response to Reply # 43


          

its not just about him having a job

its about the NFL not acknowledging the intentional and systematic blackballing of him for protesting racial injustice

I can never rock with them again at least until that restorative justice has been served

There should be an acknowledgement and a public apology, as well as all teams giving him or asking for a fair "look" at his skills with sincerity, then letting him say no if he doesn't want to play.

We all know that will never happen.

Therefore, in light of their past missteps around misogyny, the mistreated of injured/retired players around concussions and CTE, covering up and wristslapping criminal players (rape, wifebeating), I will never support the NFL again.

with that said, I'm completely fine if at some point, you want someone else to do the pool. I just morally cannot.

After so many days of checking the bookmarks...I hit my dud Snacks on Twitter like...”I guess it’s really over.” A site I’ve legit been coming to, basically every day, since ‘99...was gone. I had become ok with it. That said, I probably won’t be here much, if at all. Also...I probably will.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

They added Anxiety to the list in PA which is going to add so many people to the eligiblity list since almost anyone can claim anxiety, but I actually do have severe anxiety and panic issues I've been in treatment and on meds for for a long time.

That being said, the experience of legally buying weed in a nice store is crazy.

But also, as someone who very rarely has gotten high in the last 5+ years as being in my late 30's with a young kid changes my social life, it's crazy what actually prescribed marijuana can do compared to just smoking it on your own.

All these specific strains made for very specific purposes, 2:1 CBD to THC or whatever. I honestly can hit this, function in my day and just feel non anxious in a way that no medicine or even other weed has ever been able to do for me. Science is some crazy shit.

Hey, it happens. There could be worse topics to discuss. When you're house-ridden (medical issue) , and your outlet has become limited due to that predicament, you look for civil entities to engage online, regardless of the divergence in opinions.

I haven't been on here in about 5-6 years, so the discussion rules escaped me. lol
