    I'm a fan of neither westerns nor ballads, but I just can't stop listening to it.

This song is your gateway drug. Soon, you'll learn to love both. Also, I know this is a parody, but if you've never listened to it, give Big Iron a shot. It's a very good song.

In 1997 the Kazakh president launched a plan to protect his new capital from the icy winds of the featureless steppes with a ring of trees. Twenty years on, his scientists are still struggling to grow forests in a spot where no trees stood.

Since we're talking about growing trees in harsh places. In the article you posted mk, it talked about students traveling to Iceland to learn about contemporary desertification. It would be interesting to see if people around the world, struggling to reforest places, are exchanging ideas, techniques, and data. There's a similar article I read a while back, about a man somewhere in Asia, who planted a whole forest himself, tree by tree. I'll see if I can find that and share it too.

Edit: Here's a whole list of projects

You guys went on a quest!

Invasion of the Astro-Monster/Godzilla X Monster Zero ended up being a real treat for me because I didn't ever see the movie until after I saw episodes of The Rebel on television. Nick Adams is the actor that plays the American in the movie and in The Rebel he's a man named Johnny Yuma roaming the country side with a sawed off shotgun doing cowboy shit. The entire time I watched Monster Zero, I couldn't help but imagine Nick Adams character was an astronaut Johnny Yuma.

You're starting to get to the point where the Showa era starts to let loose a bit more and have more fun. It's honestly been so long since I've seen either Godzilla X Ebirah or Son of Godzilla that I don't remember much of either. They're all fun in their own way though. Lots of people really enjoy Godzilla's Revenge and Godzilla X Hedorah just because they're pretty wild departures from your regular films.

So, out of curiosity, do you have a favorite monster yet?

You should go around, ooing and awwing everything and taking pictures like Detroit is the biggest, fanciest city you've ever seen.

Went to bed last night feeling like a champ. Woke up this morning feeling like a loser. Must have been a dream I had last night.

I was gonna make a rant about how much I hate Nat Geo Wild and how I think the channel is sensationalist and borderline exploitative reality TV bullshit that puts what should be a historically well respected organization like National Geographic to shame. Decided not to post it, cause it's just too fucking negative. Seriously though, Nat Geo Wild is mostly shit.

Read multiple articles in the newspaper today dogging on my city, my county, and my state. I mean, I know this place isn't paradise, but hot damn, it's not that bad.

I'm wearing an undershirt, a flannel shirt, and a sweater and I still can't seem to get warm. Maybe I'm sick. I've been getting sick a lot lately. Don't know what that's about.

I'm gonna go draw something now and devise a plan into tricking thenewgreen into selling me his house for like, $100 or something.

Thread res. I was gonna post this today, but it looks like francopoli beat me to the punch by a whopping year.

I used to collect action figures.I never could keep them in their packages. Chances are, I'd be the same with any car. :)

All cool bro. I'm loving these "millenials are destroying X" articles.

If crying is the worse you're doing, you've come far. I'm sorry to hear things didn't work, but keep trucking on dude and keep trying to improve. Right now, you deserve the best you that you can be.

I think the best way that ads work is that they just remind you that something exists. If it's something you're half interested and ads help keep it in your main thoughts, you're more likely to go after it. After I gave up Reddit, my media consumption for comics, movies, and games pretty much plummeted. I wasn't constantly being reminded about the things I wanted, so I tended to forget about them, and then, I didn't buy as much.
