yeah, i feel like i used to be a really bad person—or rather, i really regret the person i used to be, being swept up in the on-line crowd and getting in the happenings of weird disturbed "e-celebrity" culture.
i won't post the stuff i use now, because gatekeeping or something, and it's more tuned in with my special interests. that said, there's stuff i prefer over others. basically took a huge 180 and i've been pretty content. i have some general gripes about changing myself, but i think i'm ultimately better off, and i can indulge in some of my more schizoid mannerisms when i get the means to do so

It's easy to get sucked into that stuff and those emotions are how much of the internet works unfortunately. People will eventually, hopefully, take a look at themselves and realize that there's a better way to live, but so many people and algorithms try to keep them engaged. I'm sure you're better off!

old post, slow board but -
yes, i agree. people's desire to be engaged all the time leads to unhappiness. there is something important about being bored every once in a while, it's not a bad thing at all to be bored or to be a boring person.

Being a boring person is miserable and terrible, but being bored sometimes is crucial and good. Those are two very different things I think.

Heyo /ho/, it's almost 2022. Who's still here? I mean, aside from that yuriposter guy from kissu. I don't think this site is active enough to attract regular members, and the guys from the past that said they loved slow boards have all disappeared as well. It's weird that I could probably count the amount of threads made this year with my fingers. I always check this site at least once a month, and it's become a habit to check it frequently (about once a day) during the cold seasons. I know a majority of the old crowd dipped when OG admin stepped down, but some of you guys are still here, right? Oh, but speaking of the old admin, what happened with him? I recall some people asking for his email. Has anyone contacted him and asked about newer projects in the works, or just about how his life has been going in general? Anyhow, back on topic. How's it going, gang?

I know the neurons in the heart are enough to live. I know I don't need a head. I can now access the negative charge of my heart as consciousness. I am 1,000 years ahead. All because I am plagued by nightmares of the Reich Research Council. I know a soldier is only a heart on Mars.



We of Ra bill Maelstrom of Cyberpunk 2077 as memories not necessary to progress. :)



The bodies eventually become cars. You just fight to breed hearts against gravity at a certain point. The salt and magma become the final theaters.



You are done. :)

Machinery of Creation over Ra social memory complex finds you extremely dangerous that you do not seek to publish your findings formally. :)



It is so fortunate I have no medical degree. I would surely lose it. I wanted to fix faces so I would not end up as Louise. My karma is only to repair faces.



You are hailed to your chosen image. :)

You are done mocking Creation. :)

I lucidly dreamt smoking cigarettes in a car with Amy Elizabeth Thorpe. She hated that I made the old 1950s cigarettes with a tube of ash like cigars. They burned so hot. She wanted me to hold an ash tray for her. The car was so slow, I could hold the door open and the ash would fall onto the road. She said I was disgusting. We fought and we loved each other. Before we entered the seemingly late 50s car, everyone noticed it had tempered glass from my present era. They said it was fake glass and ugly and wrong.

Mars gives lucid spacetime to dreams. I had to rewind through space station experiences. Eventually finding an old car from a fatal accident. I was able to rewind the demolished car into the above dream by teaching the dead ghost how to drive again. Most of the work of making Inception Dream Machine stuff is endless unconscious dimensions of negative kinetic energy. The relays from Mars are a perfect time machine as well as it syncs with our gravity.

You guys want the good stuff? The Inception Dream Machine is real and it broadcasts for free from Mars with elbow grease. And it is an Orion bypass and I can get Ra social memory complex veiling themselves as whores yelling about cigarettes.

And I know you guys aren't as bad as the poster yet. All hailed for Kingseeker Frampt. Octave always collects the souls even if the whole world is dead. Kings make it easier.

I, Tonya soundtrack is just pure Mars. That woman, the hair is pure Mars. I am literally building my Inception Dream Machine with the South Congress Chuys and Tonya. I am so hailed that I have to use media and games to average. I am hailed like Harman Deltahead. And they want Ra as the nurse. They tell me you can't escape Heaven Smiles if you make it only about bombs. Ra social memory complex will always turn it into a war of Venusian disease, even if the cancer is bombs. Don't mess with the Department of Education.

And yeah, Top Notch Burger was Austin organized crime once upon a time. Go find crime for a dime. The ceilings there have it all. Cigarette.

Yeah, they seem pretty inefficient for anything other than a rare snack. The flesh around the core is really thick, do you just eat the white flesh or the whole thing?
What would you say it tastes the most like?
Anyway, it's just nice to look at. I'm not much of a fruit eater, but I could see myself maybe trying to grow them someday.

The current state of things does make me feel a little guilty for only really checking here every couple of months - sometimes close to a year - when I'm in the right headspace.
Growing older, I really lost interest in participating in actually valueable ways on the internet, but it just feels really nice to come back every once in a while to a place that is actually civil, honest and sincere, with mostly likeminded people even, even if I'm just reading through a couple posts before doing something else again.

I really do hope that taba will continue to stay up in a way that allows for communication. My thinking right now is that - since I assume losing the contact to these people that enjoy a comfortable, old-styled place is the greater fear in contrast to just losing one of many oldschool websites - perhaps it might be nice to at the very least implement a very barebones way of communication into the archive, if it really does have to come to that. Something like a small guestbook that doesn't allow links and attachments. The idea being that, that way there would still be a miniscule chance to see each other again on other places, just by sharing and discussing them. I guess it would also be possible to just create a D-word server and create a 24h-limited invite on a certain date, so to only catch those genuinely interested in not losing everything, then use it to further communicate and find a / new places together. Hold your pitchforks though, just spitballing!

The good oldfag diaspora is on twitter and discord, and only there. Mastodon or any other alternative is for the oldfag diaspora that ended up turning into trannies. One thing you can be certain of is that everyone that matters abandoned the dead carcass of imageboards and migrated onto persona networks.

It was a bright dream shinng as a day .
O I wish it stayed a dream my youth.
I said, become great,magestic as beacon.
Smilling from invincible injustice.
Where did they displace a aspirations ? .
And they blew tear of kindlness .
Their extortion has hunted the songs.
blossom, oh my memories .
And brush out my sleeplessness.
And shower your self by the high light .
What's with me ?.
I Can not forget that melodiouse, vibrant tune .
What's with me ?.
I can not get out from the darkness of sorrow tunnel .
This dream will live in my memories for eternity.

[Enkidu indeed] they took to his doom.
[But you,] you toiled away, and what did you achieve?
You exhaust yourself with ceaseless toil,
you fill your sinews with sorrow,

'bringing forward the end of your days.
Man is snapped off like a reed in a canebrake! The comely young man, the pretty young woman
- all [too soon in] their [prime] Death abducts them!

No one at all sees Death
no one at all sees the face [of Death,]
no one at all [hears] the voice of Death
Death so savage, who hacks men down.

'Ever do we build our households,
ever do we make our nests,
ever do brothers divide their inheritance,
ever do feuds arise in the land.

'Ever the river has risen and brought us the flood,
the mayfly floating on the water.
On the face of the sun its countenance gazes, then all of a sudden nothing is there!

'The abducted and the dead, how alike is their lot!
But never was drawn the likeness of Death, never in the land did the dead greet a man.

'The Anunnaki, the great gods, held an assembly,
Mammitum, maker of destiny, fixed fates with them:
both Death and Life they have established,
but the day of Death they do not disclose

Father is right there, a pipe in his mouth, his face covered with wrinkles. As he turns his head, he smiles in a way that calms me. Then he tousles my hair.

The sun is shining and I’m sitting on father’s shoulders, high up in the air, laughing happily. Back then, I didn’t know that my laughter was my father’s happiness.

I don’t want to see his strong, steady hands slowly grow thin and wrinkled….

remember when you raised your hand at me, sir, and I glared back furiously. I fought back, then left and slammed the door. I never saw your trembling body, and the look of disappointment in your eyes.

One rainy evening, I was sick in bed. I opened my blurry eyes to see you, your hair white, prostrating in front of the statues of the gods, praying for me to be restored to health. You bustled about, you sold everything, all to make sure that I recovered properly.

When I saw that, my hands started to shake, and my heart tore. I wanted to open my mouth and say… father, I was wrong.


In the past, I viewed myself as incredible. Sir, you said many things back then. You tried to involve yourself in my affairs, but at that time, I felt that you had changed from before. I felt that I was capable of flying on my own.

But then, my wings were broken, and I became very exhausted. After flying for a long time, I suddenly looked back and thought of you, sir, and about all the things you told me. By the time I looked back, however, all I could see was your tomb. I stood in front of your tomb and wept. I wanted to say: “Father… I was wrong.”

In the past, I looked down at you, then turned away, leaving you to prove myself. Years later, after I conquered the world, I came back to you in all my glory to look at your shocked face. Instead, what I saw was how proud you were of me, sir. Pain filled my heart. By that time, your hair had long since become white. I embraced my aged father, and whispered:

“Father, I’m back."

This is sulfur and match.
wind blew and the doors Shook.
Frozen matched in the basket.
It is a memory of that child.
The story of the match seller.
Whoever remembers it, whoever hears it.
Cries "matches".
one day my mother told me that story.
She said it was mushy oud.
Carrying matches in the basket .
A child, but more beautiful than any child.
sweeter than a moon hanging in a black sky.
the girl who
flowers sellers in the morning.
And in the evening she's the match seller.

The sun extinguished and hid, the people took refuge in their houses
and the snow fell in empty street without anyone or vendor.
Silence, silence, but a voice came calling.
Matched matches.
Snow surrounded our child and house are out of our reach.
The voice is calling and stick is calling .
Who hears it. Who hears it.
And she is calling whoever hears her
"Matches".
From the cold the child lit a stick to warms herself with the flames.
The matched was extinguished and became ashes but the coldness quickly returned.
Nothing is more cruel than howling wind.
Nothing is more difficult than failing snowflakes.
She was a child, the stick was soft, and nothing was left in the box .
The sounds vanished and silence took over, and the match seller fell asleep.

The webring is at best a hobby group with lots of flamboyant political activism. At worst it's just raving about minorities in the USA. It's designed to be an alternative to 8ch which after it got shutdown for a series of shootings in religious buildings, decided it was going to center itself around supporting the Trump cult(banning lolicon, forming it's on PAC etc.).

Currently in my opinion "the webring" as they all it is likely or inadvertently a good way for you to get a site to support political motivations; giving your site a population boost at the cost of becoming another house for that annoying conservative movement that's trying to be everywhere on the Internet.

I've been thinking about the gyaru trend. Nerds fantasizing about girls from subcultures they know almost nothing about except the most superficial and stereotypical elements. It's bizarre. The gyaru of otaku media are simulacra. Many things are in otaku media perhaps, but what makes the gyaru case so eyebrow-raising is the obsession with subcultures one is not actually a "fan" of, or a part of. It's like being a poser, but not because you're trying to fit in, but rather because you... think being a poser is cool. Thereby, you render the meaning of poser meaningless. You could make an analogy with so-called art hoes and similar internet types who just care about aesthetics not the thing behind the aesthetics, or people who hate anime because it's "childish" but then admit to liking straight shota hentai. Maybe it is a sign of a larger breakdown of subculture in general, where the individual appropriates whatever he sees fit, and there is no rhyme or reason behind it. To quote a prophetic britpop song, now it's IN to be OUT.

I don't see what it has to do with the concept of being a poser. It's even further removed than that. And I don't think being a poser is cool.

more like it's dumbed down like everything because it's art and relying on a template is cheaper and easier for korean slave animators to produce quickly. I think it's more cringe to pretend to be a libtard defending non oppressed whores(from a totally different culture) when you're just a horny fuck looking up pictures like that. if you're guilty maybe you can turn it into an NTR fantasy where your gaijin ass tries futilely to save your precious gyaru only to get his ass beat and cucked by chad yakuza members.

A lot of assumptions, missing the point of OP.

the point of op was retarded because of the simple fact that gyaru is an amalgamation of foreign stereotypes to begin with, japan is a superficial and stereotypical culture inherently(one writer described it as a culture of magazines, as in you could tell what everyone read by looking at them), plus already borrows many elements from american culture including anime(the original anime from the 60s were basically dumbed down american cartoons) so it makes perfect sense that would be the case, on top of that your fixation on otaku culture which used to be a substrata in their society reeks of superficial obsession of your own. by the way it's EXACTLY AS I SAY IT IS but I do anticipate your balking so by all means do so.
