I have re-read the Harry Potter series every December since 2007. Finished on NYE. #tradition

I've lost my 6th sense for detecting irony on forums. Is it irony or not? tard

They're really good books. But isn't reading them once or twice enough?

Actually, I very rarely read the same book twice, except for some rare exceptions. There are so much to read, can't waste the time.

I try to read the Hobbit about once a year. It's been my favorite book since I was 10. I've read through the Malazan series twice, A Canticle for Leibowitz a couple times, and the same with Blood Meridian and a few other books. Depends if I feel like I'm getting something out of it and not just reading it for the story alone.

When I read it (being 12 or something) I didnt pay attention so much for the first chapters and instead I visualized Bilbo as this:



Tried to read the latter trilogy but it was at the time when the movies came out so I remember there was a spoiler about Aragorn being Strider on the backside of a carton of milk, which made me alittle pissed so I stopped, still The Hobbit feels like the best book. Too bad the movie was shit. icon_hug

My brother had to read it when he was in middle school. We had rented the Rankin-Bass animated movie from the library before he read the book proper and I really liked that, which is what spurred my reading the book for the first time. After he read his copy I borrowed it and kept it, more or less. I also did that with a few other books he read in high school like Siddhartha. The ones I ended up reading were shit. They moved to more contemporary books by the time I got there.

Been a while since I went dacing.

Spacecat enters my mind whenever I gaze up at the night sky.

And I often ponder. Did megs have a cat of his own back then? Did he ever get one?

Are we all geting old?
Approaching 40 with 4 kids.
Can't even drink n e more. 4 beers and I get hung over. This is bad since kids make you want to drink.

I did have a cat of my own then, and now (a different cat of course)

I love animals and wouldnt harm a fly, literally or figuratively, even metaphorically. It was a dead cat by the side of the road and i did some expressionist taxidermy

havent done anything like that since of course, turns out people will happily eat a burger full of butts but you hold up more complete bits it makes them shudder



i had a wee daliance a few years ago, i wanted to cover a tree in skin, but pig skin is quite pricey. the skin would turn to leather in the sunshine and the tree would look metal as fuck

one day.



I can feel my age now, the hangovers are slower to recover, drugs tend be not worth the comedown, my eyesight is getting worse, my face is sliced with wrinkles. I dont mind as the life I had in my 20s wasnt sustainable really, id probably be dead by now if i tried to Keep it Up.

i live in the country and dating a german lass, i teach homeless people how to use computers, things turned out more normal and better than i thought

though now and then i get the urge to fill a bulls heart with ants or fly dead birds as kites.

Hello dear friends like a phoenix I have risen, shotgun by my side, Chernobill my ride or die. Like phoenix to a flame and/or icarus soaring towards the Sol Invictus shall I fall, and probably in like 3 days I will have forgotten this website again; ride by the sword die by the sword as they say. But until then I'm back for good. Feels like it was only yesterday when I was a young phoenix hatchling and now I'm a full blown piss stained degenerate living like a king in his shitty studio apartment. But that's cool I've always been pretty disillusioned with the whole consumer culture anyway. 34, single, will not mingle, and after years of odd jobs and unemployment, for the past bunch of years I've done tattoos for a living, I guess the comics paid off, not really though, but it pays the bills whatever. My life didn't turn out at all how I imagined it would because I never imagined it turning out to be anything really, mostly surprised to be alive still. Two decades of mental health issues and I'm back to shitposting on DAC, I've gone full circle, but that's the Samsara of internet for you. I'm pretty saddened that I've forgotten most of the funny shenanigans that were going on here, I'd like to pretend I remember space cat but that's a stretch.

Anyway for an introverted kid living in a small rural town this forum was honestly a pretty meaningful place, I guess, I don't know. It's an inseparable part of my teen years and I suppose my identity to some extent as well. Also I really like what Megatron wrote about the olden days of the Internet on the previous page, I read Snowden's autobiography earlier this year and he talked about the very same things quite a bit, the anonymity, and how you could be a kid having a conversation with grown ass men, a level playing field. Not that I ever had a conversation or contributed anything of value word-wise and I'm pretty sure young Snowden did not spam goatse all over his tiny corner of the world wide web, but I must say I'm pretty proud of the Wasteland subdomain and everything related to it; I guess it was my first public outlet for my weirdness, in the safety of anonymity. Now I'm just weird identifiably, but then I feel like the internet spawned a whole generation of fuck-ups like me so it's nothing special anymore anyway, I'm just another nail to be hammered down, and if you read through this whole thing then I feel sorry for you, peace ouuuuut Sanitarium for life!

Also what the fuck is my avatar

Welcome home gimpmask icon_hug

I don't find this site degenerative, on the contrary it might be one of the very few last standing beacons of hope.


DAC is not the end of the circle, it's the save point of life, you are lucky to be on it, 34 is young. Look forward to the ride. icon_drunk

Thanks for the blossoming welcome! 34 is young but I don't expect to get old, fuck it anyway. It's 106 miles to Arroyo, I've got 30 microfusion cells of fuel, a lifetime supply of Jet, it's radioactive out there and for some reason my leather jacket is missing a sleeve. Hit it homieslice!

Also have I been around here when you've been around here? I don't mean it in any mean way at all and apologize if I'm being forgetful, my memory's just a bit fucked I guess that's why they call it Random Access Memory LMAO icon_chainsaw

Good times, before the great fuck up of trying to renew the site for profit under totalitarian regime.



What are you on? I'm in Europe and if it hadn't been for Corona a dream of mine is to visit Prague, seems pretty wild west concerning drugs.
