First time logging in since 2011! I was that annoying kid who joined waaaay too young and tried my hardest to comment on every single post with 'lol' or 'cool'. Good times!

Didn't expect this thread to backfire so soon lol
Good for you though! :)

Me still struggling with shit

Neko 2021-09-10 14:12

Didnt you like have a girlfriend?

ChaosFish 2021-09-10 14:20

Several times, yep

Neko 2021-09-10 14:23

Seriously though what are you struggling with?
(Or pm me ok)

ChaosFish 2021-09-10 14:32

Thanks for the concern. Really. Life just didn't really work out for me yet. I intend to live forever so that shouldn't be a problem, though.

Kobold 2021-09-10 19:36

Haha yeah, I for myself have been pensioned for a while, didn't really get along with that whole having-a-job thing. Lots of medical procedures didn't help either. I'm having therapy

DedalousDiggle 2021-09-12 07:33

Yesterday one of my coworkers said I’m the granddad of the department, so I guess so.

CS2x 2021-09-14 19:21

Hello ChaosFish! It seems you, Neko and I are the oldest members here. The year 2000!

And don't worry. It has been hard for me too, growing up. I can relate to what kobold said also. Many of my friends are getting endless promotions, have definite future plans and positive expectations of success, and are in good health. It's like an endless upwards spiral of ambition and achievement, where "problems" are more between two good options than anything else. Not judging, just a general observation.

I'm just in "survival mode", though, getting through each day. But I do have good friends who care, a foster son (he'll be moving on soon but has been nothing but a blessing) and a wife. My main work has been doing soundtracks, which has had ups and downs but is good as I don't think I'd hack a regular job and making music is wonderful.

Insomnia and then health things have come on thick and fast since 2018 however. I'm currently going through auditory hell with my hearing. That side of things began in February 2020 after I played at too loud a concert. Suddenly went even more haywire in May of this year - I don't know why, though I suspect it was randomly getting a bunch of ear infections. And then went crazier still just recently. 24/7 screaming catastrophic tinnitus, hyperacusis (over sensitivity to / pain with most sound), etc.

I still think it is better to live / keep on going. I have a faith in God too, which I know will seem utterly ludicrous to everyone in this day and age but has changed things. Never complain, people! Be thankful for the silence, hearing and senses you have. Food (if you have it.) Shelter. Etc.

Seems that way - even I qualify, and I very much remember being something of a baby of these forums.

I do think being a grownup is kind of a fake idea though. I definitely don't feel very grown up a lot of the time!

Heey fishos! Long time no see. :)
Guess so. *shrugs*

Y'know what's one cool thing that came out of 2020? this website:

I was pretty impressed at how immersive this kind of thing can be. It's such a nice idea and such a nice registry of the world. Somebody will be nostalgic about these scenes one day in the future.

I’m also making short films to help people with love and their relationships. For example:

Good to see the place alive again:cool:

the old great mare she ain't what she used to be

Snapman 2021-09-21 16:58

Finally remembered my password after 4 attempts.

Mad to think that I signed up for this place almost 20 years ago. Where has the time gone?

Snapman! I remembered you the other day and thought it'd be fun if you said hello again / some reconnect occured.

Do you remember that Radiohead concert? Are you still engaged deeply in music?

Sorry I was so often a jerk online in those days. :(

Snapman 2021-09-23 23:50

Hey CS2x, how’s it going? Course I remember the Radiohead gig - can’t believe it was that long ago!

Yeah I’m still into music, though mainly listening rather than recording these days. I work from home these days so pretty much just spend all day listening to all sorts of stuff.

Sorry to hear about you developing hyperacusis - I used to know a guy who suffered with that and it seemed extremely unpleasant. Hope you’re keeping well regardless.

Purple Sheep 2021-10-01 19:59

Since there seems to be a reunion going on, I thought I'd at least pop in and say hello. (I probably check the MBN for news once or twice a year - hence stumbling across this!)

Joined as a teenager back in the 2000s and haven't really posted since then. Now in my 30s. I guess that could count as grown up?

Nice to see some old familiar names!

Sorry the links in my signature don't work any more.

Nice to see you Sheepie. Guess we're all around our 30's indeed.
Are you still playing the good ol' trumpet and all that jazz?
