Uhh, I haven't even set up a Christmas tree yet. XD I should get onto that.

Never really was a huge Christmas celebrator.

Don't worry

We over here have a habit of setting up a Christm-- I mean a New Year Tree (we celebrate New Year instead of Christmas) at the last or before last day before the celebration XD

Usually I'd say that this is a Russian thing, but I think it's just us postponing things with holidays until the last possible moment

who follows 700 000+ people on twitter? seriously? Thats really cheap way to try fish for followers & advertise yourself. "hey look, i care what you have to say... dont mind other 700 000 people, i somehow can read all those tweets & still function as human being"

I might sound angry, but in reality im simply laughing my ass off right now that people actually fall for this. Here's the full story so far though:

I have 20 followers on twitter, most of them spambots (and somehow 1 person i actually know from real life). Using twitter as throwaway platform, mostly to participate in giveaways & such, though lately i have been starting to post bit more meaningful ones (though still max 1 every few weeks. max). So i notice another popup telling me i have new follower (que most uninterested "wow"). I do open the profile and imagine my suprise when i saw this was real person account. With 1 000 000 followers. It apparently belongs to some youtuber i have never heard (Bart Baker- though apparently he has lot of subscribers). Then my view slides to "following" tab and i am still laughing at that ridicolous number i saw there- apparently that guy follows 735 000 people. Now, i know its common practise to do so to gain more followers, but thats just over the top ridicolous. And whats more baffling is that so many people fall for it. Its tough enough keeping track of news you want when following 50 people, but almost a million? I find it one of funniest things i've seen in a while

To me one of the worst things abot being ill is sitting next to someone in public (like on a train, in class, etc.) and feeling like an awful disgusting mucus factory, constantly coughing, sneezing, and blowing your nose, knowing that you're making the person sitting next to you really uncomfortable. Also, am I the only one who feels like if someone coughs, and you cough immediately afterwards, people think "Oh wow, look at that copycat"?

Apparently, the '06 GMA 3000 is as good as a good card from '02. Three or four years' lag actually is way less than I was expecting, I was thinking something more like five years.

Alreet lads? Just thought I'd pop by and give an update with me life to those who are interested:

 

Working full-time, moving between houses, picking up a girlfriend, and having a hectic time with the band (guitarist leaving during festival season, and training up a new one) has all left me with no real time to stay up to date with both the forum and Accursed Farms in general. But I'm on the second of three days off where I don't have anything to do (me lass is in Germany for the holidays). Hope everyone's well :)

 

Not sure how active I'll be on here moving forward, but I'll do what I can. I'm getting holidays booked over the next few months to do music and games, so I'll put some time aside for the forum (and my AF spin-off).

 

In the meantime, stay cool, feel beautiful, and have a picture from my most recent gig.

Binky Binky Binky... How this crusty old suburban walrus has missed you... :'c

 

But seriously though dude it's nice to hear from you! :D I'm glad your absence has been due to properly positive reasons. I'm pleased that your band seems to be garnering a name for itself.

It's about time somebody fucking said it.

God bless you Mr. Pie. While I do agree that damning an entire year based solely on celebrity deaths is pretty stupid as Pie explained there's plenty of other legitimate reasons for why 2016 is awful.

Sticking my reply in a spoiler cuz it's more a vent than I'd like. This isn't directed at you, just a response laced in heavy residual stress.

 

I mean, I can't speak for anyone else but personally, this has been the worst year I've ever endured. I even have a list:

 

- Starting early January my asthma's been getting consistently worse, helped absolutely none by the eternal burning of the California mountain ranges and it's smoke that not even the indoors can fully block. Doctor says that there's nothing I can really do about it other than learn to live with it and stay clear of sources of dust and smoke.

- In February my friend died.

- In March my great uncle died and his daughter thought it'd be fine not to tell us until 5 months later. Actually they didn't tell us at all. we found out on our own 5 months later.

- I spent the entire summer with a leg brace after refucking up an already sorta fucked up knee.

- In October my dad nearly died and spent a week in the hospital.

- In November I experienced a disconnect(or whatever you call it) that lasted over a week. The entire time it legitimately felt like everything was fake and that I was trapped in my own head as my body just went about it's day.

 

And this is all on top of the most stressful, surreal political circus act I've ever seen which I'm still having trouble making sense of, and the stress of knowing that come the 27th of next month, I have to rely on medicare, a program currently in the sniper scope of certain government fuckwads who want to change it to turn a profit.

 

I don't doubt that a lot of people are over reacting but for me, this year can't end fucking fast enough.

I'm not saying you have no right to complain if you personally had a genuinely bad 2016, I'm just sick of the general overreaction.

"Nope, stop complaining! People had worse than you!" - People like the guy in that video.

Except that isn't AT ALL the point of the video. Skip ahead to 4:44. If you had a bad year, that's fine and you have every right to complain, but celebrity deaths and political events that you aren't happy with doesn't constitute a "worst year ever".

And didn't you block me? Do me a favor and stick to what you said. If you really think I'm a jackass then do me a favor and shut up.
