Just settled down in Lawton, OK near Ft. Sill where I'll be working for a year. OKC is quite surprisingly a super cool town, spent a day or two there after our 3-day road trip from NYC. I've got two weeks in preventative quarantine doing nothing but taking free-to-cheap online classes off of UDemy to try to maintain some semblance of intellectual stimulation. Also learning my way around Ableton.

There's a blood drive across the street from my apartment complex this Friday, so I'm throwing a post-blood-donation party at my apartment to make friends and see who passes out first.

This is my roommate's fat fuck of a rabbit. His name is SGT Pepper. He gives me life in the morning.

This is all the books I threw in a box to bring with me from home. If you want to read one, pm me for a book exchange.

While moving I found a Ziploc full of letters and postcards I've received and kept over my years at school. Some of them are from the Hubsquad, and I doubt I ever replied via mail, so I'm going to try to do that this week.. but I haven't seen or heard from lil in a minute and I fear she's moved since she sent me one.

Just having that ability to build connections and relationships as a family for example.. I'm just counting the years until I feel prepared to be a bitchin' good dad.

    steve has 11 kids though

Nice one steve, the thought of that just killed my family fever /s

These are the sorts of stories that I dream to make my own one day. Absolute kick-assery.

(P.S. I think I'm getting family fever)

Hahaha gotcha, I'm always here for it.

I resent your sarcasm for I benefit wonderfully from this mantle.

I dont think we’ve interacted much but I think I remember when you first joined the site.. apparently in the same year that I did. Good to see ya around!

Too often I take those posts to #songsforpabs for granted tng. So... Thank you.

Hey friendos, I’m here (thanks steve!) in my own capacity. I actually check hubski instinctively on a daily basis, like I would reddit or facebook. I haven’t heard from galen in a moment though, but I know he’s kicking ass in school abroad last I heard, and I’m rooting for him.

I check Hubski like I’d pop into a room to check on a group of people:

“Hey, yall doing alright? you need anything? Cool, have fun.”

Im active in spurts because its only every once in a while that I have to bring someone a glass of water, so to speak. Or, I’m having the kind of day where I need to take a knee and see what’s going on outside of my head; I pop over to a room where I can rely on many users doing their best to be their version of a good person.

There was a time when I was posting, sharing and commenting all day long (sometimes on alias accounts) and was always given a healthy combo-dose of guidance and encouragement. I just don’t have the luxury to commit to that right now, but I highly doubt the site is at any a loss if some of the hubsquids in my “peer group” dont saturate the feed.

edit: since I’m already in this thread and have yet to be muted by our benevolent developer megamind, I think no magnitude of algorithmic glory and website-design strategy will accomplish the key task of growth in numbers, or depth of field (both vertically in value of content/users and horizontally in range of content/users). Good marketing and good luck will do that as you likely just have to knock enough heads against the site to stick ones that are tensile enough to hold on. All your vision for a philosophically and mechanically perfect site does accomplish has already long been achieved on Hubski... a kick-ass site full of meaningful content that people love. If you’re feeling doldrums, slap a decent throwback-to-quality-content mechanism on this site and indulge in the insane amount of valuable thought people put on this platform.

    Low allegedly purchased a US$325,000 white Ferrari as a wedding gift for Kim Kardashian in 2011.[42][43] The Department of Justice (DoJ) was reported to have sought restitution from other famous celebrities who had received gifts from Low, among them Leonardo DiCaprio, who has since returned Picasso and Basquiat paintings; and Miranda Kerr who returned diamond jewellery with a market value of US$8 million.[43][44][45]

Thank you for making my day.

Wait, I can't understand the syntax here.. does Balazs also own Soho House? The closest I've been to Soho House is having extremely attractive female friends that get invited to it and then bail on our dinner plans >.<

Also, I'm going to LA in August and would like to spend a night at Marmont but their website only has a phone number (no online booking) and I'm too afraid to call and ask.

In broad strokes, "Man, that was some spicy shit, huh?"

In reality, it's not like we're in denial about anything. From a strategic perspective, counter-insurgency is something that is still trained, studied, and evolved-- not to mention still fought.

I think it will be a very long time before the last two decades of warfighting is fully unpacked.

Holy fucking shit. I've never heard about this. God damn it.

You'll love Astroneer.

So, you're not abjectly wrong. But there are disclaimers and contingencies to most of your statements like

    Russia supports Armenia
and
    US sells guns to everyone involved either directly or indirectly
and
    they're doing their best to fend off the protestors
Historically these truths have all been time-sensitive, e.g. Russia supports a version of Armenia that is stable enough to continue being profitable, but is in no way a military priority that might aid in the defense of a Turkic invasion. Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan are all former Soviet bloc, but at least two of them have been invaded by Russian forces or proxy post-independence at least once.

In this specific microcosm of Fuckery-in-the-Caucasus, this wiki sums it up pretty well.

How do I send this to my girlfriend without losing my girlfriend.

nowaypablo  ·  77 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: Ennio Morricone died

Met him once at some random dinner, apparently my mom used to be friends with his son. I've got a 1966 copy of The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly soundtrack on vinyl in great condition.

This man will always be a legend.

The two-handed water drink was real. I'm pretty sure it had been documented before, possibly on his campaign trail?

The ramp shuffle seems a little blown out of proportion lol, the guy is 6'3 and he's just a lot of person. I think he was just being careful.
