when i first got here, it was because of a really awesome little concert, and in all the links i was given, this was one of them. i've had a little experience with message boards and seem to like them a lot, but damn did i feel out of my league here. i figured at first i was too old to make sense to anyone now; i remember posting a lot with no responses.
reading all the old stuff just on this board was pretty damn fun. i got here just in time for the alyss decline and fall, and his ill-fated date with elaine. and, i hoped that was the last of similar drama (having already surfed through the whole troll/tranny issue with friends, in person), but it seems that was the last of any drama at all.
not that i'm looking for drama. but i don't find much to stimulate an actual discussion, other than critical commentary, and even that is reacted to with kneejerk instead of more discussion, and then promptly dropped. and well, it seemed when i got here that the artistic side of people was still being stimulated and called forth, but now, not so much. i think it's interesting that in the thread about the tarot deck, people have been asking for an update on the project since march, with no answer whatsoever. i keep expecting someone to show up and fuss at people for getting impatient, assure everyone that whatever the new decision is is awesome, and fuss at everyone again for not knowing just how much work they actually do, like in the past when pre-orders got messed up or whatever. but it is even more interesting that, nothing, no response.
ever since i turned off twitter (around the end of summer; i just couldnt read one more dinner menu or 'we went to the music store' or whatever), it has seemed like the sb lacked something vital. i have really come to despise twitter; i'd rather read anyone's long-ass rambly blog than their forty-character sentence on the state of their fridge.
