Five years


that's all we got


I'm pretty sure that thing actually goes up until like the year 4770 or something.

We don't get to watch the apocalypse, well..we get to see myspace which I'm still somewhat convinced is going to kill all of us eventually, so maybe.


quotan a bowie song


So wait, David Bowie will instigate the apocalypse?

..Alright, I can work with that. Better than most alternatives.

I've been told what he did...I'd tell you, but he'd probably want me to.

Just think of him like the dirt on the sole of your shoe. He wants attention, denying it to him is what we should do.

Hell lets make this thread about something else. Anybody got a funny anecdote? Hol post some art, thats always good. Necro was that dude you hate on the bus again?

Quote by R. Lawson:
Hi, folks.

I'm not familiar with many of the users here, but I do see some I recognize. To those who know me: this message is for you.

My name is Robb, or Nova or Ninja Cow.

I've been thinking of what to say and how to apologize for the last two years, yet I've been too nervous to register. I know I was a huge jerk to many people. I regret this. I sincerely do.

I haven't come here to post on a regular basis. I couldn't if I wanted to -- too busy. I merely registered because many of you deserve an apology. So, I apologize for my past cruelty, terrible attitudes, and outright hate toward many of you.

I mistreated many of you. There's no fear when you're babbling behind a monitor, eh? One might say, "I could care less about your apology." That is fine. Yet I could not remain a coward forever and withhold an apology from you -- especially you, X.

I wish you all well,
R. Lawson


David Bowie is pretty cool and I think everyone likes at least some of his music.

I like Space Oddity among others, but I also find it kind of a sad song, whats your take on that?


space oddity definitely has a sad edge to it, providing the image of a man alone lost in space. bowie's use of the stylophone effectively gave the an otherwards folksy song a futuristic edge and successfully made it dynamic - which, although it's only from his second album to this day remains one of his most well known tracks

i've also heard rumours that at the time some critics/jounralists believed the song was a metaphor for taking heroin - this isn't something i care to think about deeply but bowie did play with the idea in the song ashes to ashes from his 1980 release, scary monsters (and super creeps):

"Ashes to ashes, funk to funky
We know major toms a junkie
Strung out in heavens high
Hitting an all-time "

I like Scary Monsters (the song, never listened to the whole album), and the one song he had Trent Reznor on that I can't remember the name of that I think started with an S.

See, people beat up on Isao, he likes Bowie. I'm not even all that into most music, I like Bowie.

Bowies awesome though, if you can appreciate awesome, you'll like at least one Bowie song. It's the universal language.

Oh hell, we should beam those out into space..if aliens exist and hear them, thats how we'd know which ones we hate. The ones who don't go "hey we like this planet, this is a good song", those are the ones we exterminate and steal their planet.

...I guess that was it, though I remember reading that there was a Bowie song that Reznor contributed vocals to, but his record label wouldn't allow it so Bowie was supposed to take Reznor's vocals out (but instead of doing so Bowie just heavily distorted them).

I dunno.


EDIT: Nevermind, the song I'm thinking of with that story is a cover of Supernaut that Reznor helped with... gah. my memory sucks.

Thank you for showing grace.

Quote by Mavveh:
Sounds like two years ago Nova had a "oh man, I was such an asshat, I should apologize" moment, and then spent two years dicking around going "oh man, I should apologize, but what should I say? oh man."


Pretty much, yeah. Funny thing is, I was able to make right with Nick (Strider) in late '06. I tried contacting Hypershell but still cannot reach him.

Quote by X-sah:
A REALLY huge jerk.


An understatement, indeed.

Quote by X-sah:
I wonder if he's changed a lot.


I have! I don't use profanity any longer. Laughing Out Loud

Remember the mean kid in Butterfly Effect? And remember how in one timeline he was really nice?

That's me now.

In essence, X -- and I am not shifting blame here -- I had been hooked on opiates since 1997. In 2004 I kicked the habit because of Sandi, God rest her soul, and then I pretty much went bonkers. Everything I did was of my own free will, of course. Please understand that I take full responsibility for my despicable actions.

I was a complacent, arrogant fool.

I went to seminary, obtained my Master's in Religious Studies, and preached my first sermon on April 27. (Don't worry, I'm not here to proselytize -- I earnestly came here to apologize to everyone.)

I appreciate your forgiveness, X. Everyone else's, too.

Robb (yeah, with two B's now). Wink
