    • Net Neutrality

      2 weeks ago

      JMonty

      I try to rarely weigh in on politics in a public sense. I tend to keep my own political opinions to myself. However, I feel like this is something I have to put out there. The FCC is currently set to vote in December to remove net neutrality, which is fantastic. If this happens ISP's will be allowed to charge for access to certain sites, essentially making it like having to pay for HBO, but instead of HBO it could be YouTube. 


      Honestly the removal of net neutrality is horrible for the entire internet community because it makes using the internet more expensive which in turn will make it less accessible and less popular. 


      Please read up on net neutrality and voice your opinions about it, also sign some petitions like this one to hopefully get it so it isn't removed:

      Sorry for my political message

      So last month I discovered a band called The Wombats and they have quickly become one of my favorite bands. I just discovered that they will also be coming to a venue really near my home! I'M SO EXCITED! 


      If any of you like New Wave or Indie rock I really suggest listening to them

    • Well...

      2 months ago

      JMonty

      In reference to my last post I had a weeks worth of exams that ruined my sanity, but the business has all blown up in my face.


      Let's just say all the organizations I'm a part of, all the classes I'm taking, all the meetings I go to caused something awful to happen and there is no going back. So yeah.....I guess doing all that you can in the end doesn't exactly work out. 


      Now I'm just trying for things to be normal for a bit, stay busy, but not too busy, learn from my mistakes. I'm not too sure what exactly I'm trying to do, but I'll get there.


      (I know this was all cluttered and didn't make a whole lot of sense because I didn't say what happened, but, it was nice to just talk about it.)

      Now that we are farther into school....I'm losing it. There are so many moving parts this year I have to take care of and I'm slowly becoming a ball of stress. I haven't even had an exam yet!

      Well my summer is officially over and I am back at college. 


      It is sad when the highlight of your summer was 1 game of corn hole that went on for an hour and a half. (For those who don't know what corn hole is the average game length is 15ish minutes, if that)


      So you can say I've had a pretty interesting summer....

    • Let's Play Naps

      4 months ago

      JMonty

      So for years I have been watching Let's Plays and it has gotten to the point that the sound of the guys doing stupid shit, killing things, or sucking at mini-golf is just a way for me to sleep. Now when I want to take a nap I go lay on my couch, put on an old Let's Play that I've seen before, watch it for a bit and just doze off. 


      This is probably weird and makes no fucking sense but it somehow works. Don't judge me.

    • I GOT A JOB!

      5 months ago

      JMonty


      I got a job crewing for local concerts and events setting up all their speakers and lights beforehand! It is an awesome job that I already have experience doing because of theater. 


      Downside is I don't have guaranteed hours and they come few and far between. Upside is that it pays super well and you get a minimum pay for when you do work.


      I HAVE MONEY AGAIN!

      JMonty

      So, I'm broke. I am basically out of money and I need a job. I have been applying to a bunch of places, but I guess people hate college students. No where around me wants to hire people for summer jobs. Ugh...I miss having an income and not having student loans...

    • Old Friends

      6 months ago

      JMonty

      I have been a member of this site now for just under 4 years, if I math right, and as I've said before so much has changed in this community since then. There have been new community members, a new site, etc. However, in my mind the most prevalent change is old members leaving. 


      Yes, I understand that people move on and things and I can always make new friends with the new community members. However, all those people I used to know when I first joined I still consider friends. Looking back through old conversations I see these people I used to talk to on the daily and I get nostalgic in a way. Then I click their profiles to see if they have been active recently and almost none of them have within a year and it saddens me to see them not be active anymore. All these people that I used to be so close to, now I have no real way to see how they are doing. It is painful. I don't know how many else of you notice this or feel this way to look at old threads and realize that half those people don't even use the site anymore and are gone. 


      *********************************************************************************************************************

      With the new site it seems harder to make friends on the forums as well. There are little to no forums that are used frequently anymore as they used to be. People post more slowly than before. Also, people make journals less than before. There used to be almost one journal a day from people. Plus we have to click a link to see these journals anymore instead of them just being on a feed on our profiles which made, in my mind, people more connected and obliged to look at others journals. Now people can just dismiss these things that people put out there without even looking at them. The site is ultimately smoother, but it feels like it came at a cost of the majority of the community aspect of things. 


      I could be wrong, I could be 100% ultimately wrong. I know that I have been wrong before, and if I am I am sorry. I just feel like whenever I come here I'm alone now instead of being part of something larger that used to be one of the best parts of my day. 

      ***********************************************************************************************************************


      Anyways back to my initial point after that tangent. I seriously miss all the old people that used to use the site and I really wish for them to come back for at least a short while. I would love to see where they are now or something because I hate letting friends go. I hate the fact of knowing that you wont ever talk to someone again that you used to be so close to. I know that this is part of life and everything but I really care for all of my friends and because I didn't have many for a time I cherish all the ones that I have and I hate seeing them leave in any sense. I do not know how many of you are sad about all the people who have left the site since you joined or not. What do you think?


      All I want to say to all my old friends who have left the site since I joined is:

        Most likely no. She did these for us because we are all friends. I know she does work for money though.

      Yes to muse. Yes to PS3. Four to you, glen coco.

      • JMonty

        3 years ago

        I've tried to learn some of their stuff on guitar. Some is hard some is easy.

      • geometrix

        3 years ago

        Yes!! Yeah that's true .-.

      • JMonty

        3 years ago

        Plus they sound just as good on album as live. They are very very hard to beat, but everyone argues.

      • geometrix

        3 years ago

        I know right? All of their songs are so incredible

      • JMonty

        3 years ago

        Knights Of Cydonia is my favorite but my top 5 are: Knights Of Cydonia, Supremacy, Hysteria, Panic Station and finally Showbiz (Resistance and Plug In Baby being very close). Its hard to pick favorites out of so many songs you love though.

      • geometrix

        3 years ago

        New Born is my absolute favourite, but I tend to list my top five: New Born, Muscle Museum, Glorious, Futurism and In Your World. You?

      • JMonty

        3 years ago

        Returning to their roots awesome! To more heavier guitar and rock. What is your favorite song by them?

      • geometrix

        3 years ago

        Ah that sounds great :') I'm so stoked for their next album because they've said it's gonna be more like Showbiz and OOS and they're my faVOURITES so it's gonna be fucking great

      • JMonty

        3 years ago

        I first heard Uprising then was hooked from then on. I did a project and speech on them in school because we were allowed to pick anything and while girls were doing JB and 1D I was the cool one doing Muse. I can't wait 'til their next album comes out so I have more songs to listen to.

      • geometrix

        3 years ago

        I became a fan of them just after Absolution came out and my parents have been a fan of theirs since Showbiz first came out. I have every album and almost every song when you consider the b-sides, and I've seen them live twice :D

      • JMonty

        3 years ago

        Wow. I can't say I've been a fan that long. I discovered them around 2 1/2 years ago while on Pandora on Cage The Elephant radio. They make me so happy too I have all their albums except Showbiz. I was also lucky enough to see them in concert.

      • geometrix

        3 years ago

        I've been a fan for over 11 years now, they make me so happy

      • JMonty

        Muse is fantastic as well as PS3. Glad to meet another fan.

        I don't study for exams I kind of just wing it and things normally work out. The swearing thing is awful I'm breaking and my mental state is deteriorating slowly, but I haven't lost yet.

      • AnneLydolf

        3 years ago

        Oh okay then :) Not swearing? Don't think I could do that... I swear too much for it to be possible! And yeah, I hate exams... spend most of my time reading and reading and reading...

      • JMonty

        3 years ago

        I'm better as of now. Just the weekend was torture for me. Oh exams they are the absolute worst. My main problem now is just not swearing which is harder than anticipated.

      • AnneLydolf

        3 years ago

        Oh sad to hear that you are sick! Get well soon :) And yeah I'm doing good, despite exams and all smiley1.gif

        Thanks Anne! I miss you guys too I don't know why I haven't been partaking in the calls or anything. Last couple days I have been sick so that was one reason. I am doing well aside from being sick and things are going well. I hope the same for you! smiley0.gif
