Hello old friends.

I’m sorry for getting your hopes up that Plaguey would drop in. It appears she can’t keep up with it. M.S. issues. Still she says she loves you all and misses you all so much. So I thought I’d start hanging here more just to share a little love around.

Happy Caturda…DV8!!1!

My goodness it’s nice to see you; I’m sure SackO’SugarK and I are not alone in missing you and Harper terribly. (Actually, we miss you both poignantly; English has some odd turns of phrase. Come to think of it, that one sounds weird, too. I must be improperly caffeinated.)

I’ll put some more coffee on; there’s some store-bought pumpkin pie and whipped cream in teh fridge. You and Plaguey make yourselves t’home. (I’m embarrassed the larder and bar aren’t better stocked for special guests…)

Big hugs from Happy Larryville to both of you!!1!

I noticed Fatwa, so this thing must auto refresh. I didn’t remember that from the old days

Fatwa Arbuckle: Misanthropologist

Reply to  dv8

The auto-refresh -- and other small enhancements -- are courtesy of our host Jerry Atrick who has been funding teh GN via his own server(s) for the past several years.

He graces us every once in a while. 🙂

Fatwa Arbuckle: Misanthropologist

Reply to  dv8

It’s been a while; there’s been no activity for quite some time of which I am aware.

She was a fugitive for a while followed by some time in the pokey (in CO, I believe). I do not know her current status, save for “not here“.

Now there are snowflakes like her all over the country beating up old ladies and calling them fascists.

It’s gonna be a real surprise to Antifa goons the first time an “honest citizen” has legal justification and runs-down or shoots one of those jackholes dead.

We’re all fascists now. 🙂

While I don’t spend much time on Twitter, I’ve found a wee group of very bright, loosely AnCap folks with un-PC senses of humor. (And containing a disproportionate percentage of armed Jooooos.)

I think I’m more of an anti-social media guy.

most of my social media is just auto posts when I stream. I am active a bit more on Gab/Dissenter though.

since they became fediverse compatable, you can get fediverse on your phone and use the app for gab also. so that’s been convenient.

I started watching pewdiepie when he did the South Park Episode. But then I started supporting him a lot more when the SJW types started picking on him.

Fatwa Arbuckle: Misanthropologist

Reply to  dv8

Haven’t watched South Park -- which I used to enjoy -- for years.

Pretty much lost interest in nearly all TV / film stuff nearly a decade ago; I’d rather read stuff online…and have a pile of hardback dead-tree SF novels awaiting me. 🙂

Yeah, I can’t remember how long ago that episode was. A long time ago though. They’ve stayed pretty fresh though all in all. like they’re making fun of Chinese censorship now.

I’ve a cousin who’s been keeping me apprised of TV / films he thinks I might enjoy; just don’t have the interest in watching. (In part as I’m still burned-out from having to watch so much crap when I was writing / producing radio promos many years ago.)

We gave our TV to the “kids” some years back and pulled the plug on satellite service; BK decided that Amazon Prime, Netflix and occasionally pirating programming (Arrrrgh!) was cheaper and better for her. She can view on her computer using cans and we don’t need a TV and soundbar hanging on a wall. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

yeah, us too. we don’t have cable. Just watch stuff on the internet. Anime sometimes southpark Arrrrrrgh. and a bit of netflix because we can use our kid’s acct. I put a roku in our oldish TV so we can use it to do smart tvish things.

I guess our TV could get the air channels, but we aren’t really into that. We pick things and binge them sometimes.

Happy Caturday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, dv8!!1!!, Fatwasset, Sven, and Mac!

I’ve been reading the threads and checking out dv8’s youtube channel -- it certainly is good to see you again! Please pass on my fondest greetings to your lovely bride.

Yeah, Nice to see you Paddy!! She misses you all so much, but has serious trouble following along these days. Although I think the email feed might help her out. We’ll have to see.

Well this thread has brought a smile to my face -- and good day Mac, and Paddy!

Back to work for me -- the house is a mess -- we hadn’t really cleaned up from the bathroom remodel, the evacuation threat two weeks ago, and it’s worse now after the other day’s fires. On top of which it’s another refrigerator clean out and dump and a slew of other carp.

And how much to really put away with power outages likely once again next week?

But we banned plastic straws.

Backup generator? Or… I wonder about CA. Cities covered in poop…. We left Oregon And came back to AZ when the mobs started attacking people. That was five years ago and really, it had been getting bad for around ten.

They are still up there, although not in that same house. Rob bought his own place. the other two guys went elsewhere. We told Jerry he could come down with us, but he decided to get a place up there. He seems ok.

Rob, on the other hand was recently assaulted by said mob and was very badly hurt, although he is okay now and is recovering.

It’s a son he has, and yes he’s all grown up and actually he decided to come live with his Dad. He’s some kind of foreman up there for work. He’s a bit rough around the edges, I’d say but a hard-working guy Rob is lucky to have him around.
