  1. My depression's been pretty persistent. I've basically been this way for 2+ decades now.

     

    I really don't know what to do. I always want to just shoot myself, but I can never muster the courage.

  2. Not just Rydell in particular, but the Bridge had all these scenes, like the (IIRC) lady in the trailer park who was convinced a handkerchief, blessed by a televangelist, could ward off AIDS.

     

    I mean, I can see why you namecheck GTAV I guess (it's like an NPC Trevor would encounter in Blaine County)

    So my first save file for Red Dead Redemption 2 was like Nov 3rd, 2018(!!!) and I finally finished the damn game off this weekend, lol.

     

    Amazing story, amazing world, but so very, very many things to get distracted by. I think I spent most of 2018 starting out on a mission, getting distracted by an animal crossing my path or a dude on the side of the road or whatever and ending up 50 miles away on the wrong side of the map from the quest, with like 10 pelts on my horse and no way to get back without dying in some outlaw gang attack… Glad I persevered though, it was good to know what the heck happened to everyone. Be sure and pay attention during the credits too, as they wrap up a lot of the little side stories (and even link RDR1 & RDR2) via little vignettes sprinkled into them.

    oh, damn, same issue with GTA V for me

  4. People like to make a big deal about the explicit artifacts of culture--stuff like cuisine--but I think/wonder if there is a whole bunch of implicit stuff about culture that is much less apparent.

  5. for something completely different, here's Cory Booker with Zuck's dog

    I get, like, both Zuck and Booker are the sort of (neo)liberal/normie managerial class or whatever, but, goddamn, tell me that photo isn't cute as hell. I cannot fathom this sort of photo, but with Trump.

  6. still utterly baffled by Trump's appeal in the first place, which maybe is why I don't have the urge to destroy the US that a lot of my lefty friends have 

     

    I'm cynical about things? But not nearly sufficiently cynical about the US?

  7. a reminder that, at 35 years, I'm not merely a virgin, I'm a (to quote 4chan) "handholdless virgin" and a "kissless virgin".


    I am honestly not that ashamed or angry about this. I mostly bring it up as a reminder of how utterly alien I am.
