Default Re: I miss what this place used to be

I've been coming here since...ekhhhh... the late 90's? I've had a bunch of different user names, and I never really contributed that much. But I'd pop in every now and again, and I still read it quite a bit.

It's weird for me because - and don't take this the wrong way - but the Bboys are and have always been my favorite group of any genre, and I still listen to their records almost every day. So to me they're just as active as ever....... but then I remember that they're not (at least not in the way I remember them), and that MCA is dead, and that this place barely gets a dozen people to reply to anything.

It all just petered out so quietly. No big group break-up, no shutting down of the website when the band retired, so scandal that ended the whole Beastie train.

I just wasn't looking and it all stopped. I never met them and they never even knew I existed, but I felt like I saw the Boys every day for decades. Now... I dunno. Maybe I'll be getting a sandwich sometime and bump into Adrock. What would I say? "When's the new album coming out?" "How's Biz Markie?"

Coming here since 90s too. Was a teenager. Now I'm closer to 40 than 30.

I still think about the boys. Still listen to the albums. This place and the band shaped my life more than what seems reasonable. But wouldn't change it. Thanks BBS, thanks BBoys

I just wanted to see if I remembered my password. I do.

I've been coming here since the late '90s, I'd guess. I was still in high school when I started. I'll be 33 in November. So, there's that.



I made $970,000 last year. How much you make? You see pal, that's who I am, and you're nothing.
Nice guy? I don't give a shit.
Good father? Fuck you! Go home and play with your kids.

I just got a chance to read this, and damn. It made my heart hurt. So, so very true. I always assumed they'd always be here, and this board and all of you awesome people would always be here. It's like having family, and you get comfortable and think home will be here forever, because it always was.

I don't know if it covers free teeth (I have two missing), but there could be a chance.

How has it changed your life now that you've been diagnosed?
Sorry to not respond to you guys. Interesting, the similarities in behavior. I got a new job that is a lot easier for me emotionally, because I am around other quiet people, some who may be on the spectrum as well...though I don't want diagnose...and I've not been diagnosed. But it's kinda funny, I'm like "why is that person so cold to me? What did I do?" And then I realize it's how people see me sometimes, and maybe it's awesome that they don't want to small talk, ha. Definitely feeling better and less anxious and depressed than when I had to work with the public...I was very sensitive to sounds and people's voices, to the point that I would physically shake. I didn't realize how bad it was until I was away from it.
Anyway, hope you guys are doing well!

Default Re: I miss what this place used to be

Over the passed 20 years (of being an adult) I've learned that a lot of people suffer from crippling-anxiety. Three of my closest friends do but I wouldn't have known when they were not close friends as they hurt themselves (mostly mentally but sometimes physically) to not show it.

A lot of us self-manage with drink and drugs which makes us OK for a brief moment but it's no cure long term with side-effects that are often worse than what we started with.

It doesn't help that there are some extroverts in the world who seem to be the life of world and we all think 'why am I not like them, they are normal' so we think that there is something wrong with us and we try to emulate. We see others trying to emulate and when you only catch the highlights of someone's life you think 'they have it sorted too, they are normal too' when actually they are screaming inside.

Life is weird. But this thread isn't weird.

Damn.

I used to be on this shit literally all 8 hours of my shift at work back in the day.

Unbelievably, the last time I logged on was exactly 364 days ago.

Clicking though some old threads is like hearing a song from your youth that you haven't heard in a decade. It instantly takes you back to that time. A time when things weren't necessarily better, but definitely so much simpler.

I had an opinion

Then I realized I was wrong so I changed my opinion

I had an opinion

Then I learned something new. The new information leads me to change my opinion

I had an opinion

Then I realized I did not know all the facts, so again I learned something new and changed my opinion

I don’t understand why people call me all of these things for changing my opinions.

Seems to me if I learn something new and don’t modify my thoughts accordingly, that would be worse. According to my fellow colleges, seems I should make an opinion and stick to it no matter how bad it is. I should even fight and stir shit up once I realize I’m wrong. I should just fight harder to make sure people think my wrong is right.

Or just change my opinion and be known as some wishy washy guy who cant make up his mind.

Unfortunately I have this issue of not giving a fuck about bullshit, so I just say how a really feel for better or worse. The funniest thing is how a room full of people bust out laughing when I speak a hard truth that nobody wants to say.

I first came here in 2002 (I would have been 19 or 20 depending on the time of year), but I don't think I became a "serious" or regular poster until 2004 or so. This place was a big deal for me in the 2000s. I've forgotten to look at this board until recently. Hey it's still here, you guys!
