I miss iTunes.

I miss actually buying digital albums rather than just streaming them.

Streaming I feel is going too far.

I feel your pain, Spuffure.

For three years (2017-2020) I had no internet access whatsoever and had to rely solely on phone data. Were it not for CDs and the music I had stored in my external hard drive I would have gone insane.

The experience left me with a newfound appreciation for physical media, and on that note I wish I could own streaming service original productions such as The Boys on Blu-ray.

Ditto! I buy physical media for the stuff I want, even if it means going on eBay. I bought a used Playstation 2 because there is no way to experience ps1 or ps2 games from that era without owning the actual thing.

I have altered Lucas’ visions. Pray I don’t alter them any further.

Just to clarify, I don’t mean just physical media, I also mean digital media that you own. Bandcamp is awesome in this regard. I can see why The Caretaker has refused to release his albums on Spotify or Apple Music.

Idk, buying digital media feels like a half-assed middle ground. After all, you only really own it so long as the store you bought it from is still online. A disc won’t disappear when the label goes out of business. I prefer the limitless options of digital. I could never afford to buy all my ever-changing music collection, but online I can have it for free or on the go for a small subscription fee. I feel like it’s a better deal.

I don’t consider digital media to be something that you ever really own, but if it works for you, it works for you. I just bought Quincy Jones’ “The Dude” off of eBay even though most of my listening will come from the rips for my iPod. I’ll mostly use the CD when I’m driving around in my Toyota, but at least I’ll have the disc in case Apple declares my tech “obsolete” with a simple update. That’s what works for me.

Sometimes I feel like this saying describes my life; “so where should I go, to the right where nothing is left, or to the left where nothing is right?”

I’m just a simple man trying to make my way in the universe.

Star Wars has 3 eras:The eras are 1977-1983(pre Expanded Universe), (1983-2014) expanded universe or (2014- now) Disney bought version. Each are valid.

In regards to both Anakin Starkiller and Eyepainter, I can see what you’re trying to say, and do kind of agree, but with Bandcamp you can download the songs, not as in download as in Spotify download with no files you can access, but actually downloading files to the computer, so even if Bandcamp went out of business (God I hope not) the files separate to Bandcamp would still be there. So that way I consider that I own it because you can access it without having to go to an app or site.

I dislike the idea of chocolate Easter Eggs. It feels to me like consumerist nonsense and corrupts the true meaning of Easter.

Well, aren’t all holidays consumerist?

Ah yes I forgot. Christmas sales and presents are (for the most part) the same.

I say for the most part because there are some things you genuinely want that can be bought there. But most of the time it’s also consumerist bull.

The Christmas consumerist craze has completely ravaged the true meaning of Christmas.

I disagree. I like eating chocolate and buying things at the store.

I’m going back to work, which means more stress and less time to build relationships.

Not sure what your situation is like, but I managed to make a few friends on Discord, and I’ve found it immensely helpful! If you can find some people who are willing to invite or DM you on Discord, I highly recommend it! 😃

Discord is indispensable for day-to-day socializations, but our monkey brains were not meant for the Internet. We still need in-person relationships.

When you work in customer service and live in a hick town where everyone is an entitled old male Karen with a fragile ego, you don’t have a choice.

Besides, I can testify to the effectiveness of Discord because I myself found a few support groups after calling the national suicide hotline. I wouldn’t be here today if it wasn’t for Discord. If that isn’t a winning recommendation, then nothing is.

Still can’t get back into the OT Discord after leaving in a moment’s folly because only mods can send invites and none of them are active except one who responding saying they didn’t have Discord set up so couldn’t help. Is anyone else having this issue?

There os a discord? Why haven’t I heard of that till now

Ups! Butzenscheibenputzer Lutz putzt Butzenscheiben, die Butzenscheibenputzer Lutz schon geputzt hat.

So… I was looking through my USBS to find something to transfer to my new computer, and was greeted with all the weird and EXTRA cringey shit I stored there when I was very horny back in 2018.

I feel tainted.

Stop feeling ashamed of your own horniness.
