Thanks!! Hey maybe I'll just get a new job that'll leave me some more dicking-around-online time, so it could still all be win-win.

It's good to have you back reallifegirl, it's good to have all you guys back.

Oh shoot, y'all, find yourself a hiding place because the Notorious RLG is back!

JamishT was a heck of a guy,
With a devilish twinkle in his eye.
With his hand-picked flowers,
And his feel-good powers,
He made all the girls blush and sigh.

I'm still alive, but busy as hell. Additionally, my new job (less stress; big raise) has severe Internet restrictions. News brief:

1. I licensed Driving In Snow to Heart Dance Records (New Age label). The song is being re-released on April 27th--I got a pretty decent deal on the royalty agreement, so I hope it ends up in a TV/Movie library. The Threads album will be re-released without Driving in Snow soon afterward. I still have CDs if anyone would like one.
2. I've formed a duo called Photon Junkies with a friend here in ABQ. Watch out for us on Facebook if you haven't yet quit.
3. I have changed jobs-- I finally got a Government job after 40 years. I am now a Systems Admin with Bernalillo County. I was hired to replace someone who was backing up the rest of the SysAdmins, so I'm learning a crapload of stuff, which is pretty cool.
4. Cathy's schedule has changed from 10-7 to 7-4, which is awesome for many reasons.

There's more, but that's the major stuff.

Cheers

The first thread I see seems to be pretty fitting. I haven't posted much since moving away from my shitty roommates except when my other half was in the hospital and then again to pop by and reassure everyone I wasn't killed during the shooting.

Jesus, have I had a busy several months. The shooting really tipped off a rollercoaster of busy for me. I had to hire and train over 100 people for the holidays, I got to go to Dallas for a work trip, I transferred to another location to help shut it down, I transferred back, hubby has had two more ER visits for the same issue, my grandma beat cancer for the fourth time, oh yeah, I got fired because bringing up HR issues to my boss was the wrong fucking choice. But I'm fine. I'm trying to get over anxiety about a job interview tomorrow, so I'm announcing my return.

I'm still alive. I spent all of August performing on the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, which was exhausting. And now I have a job, which is exhausting. But I have returned.

I got absurdly busy for a while, and then I felt like I had been gone too long to come here again. That was a dumb feeling, because as soon as I logged into this website again it was like pulling a warm blanket over my somewhat traumatized internet browser.

Sup. While I've been fairly active on Discord, I really haven't posted on here recently. So don't panic, I'm not locked in anyone's sex dungeon at least not unwillingly, I'm just incredibly lazy. Hope y'all have been doing well, and I've missed you.

Hello! So I highly doubt anyone remembers me, I used to post on Cracked a lot and came here a few times back in 2015... and wow that was a different time. Came here for nostalgia purposes expecting the board to be defunct so it warms my dry, shriveled heart that a pretty cool group of smart people are still hanging out here. :)

I've got a PhD now (sociology) and am lecturing (proudly non tenure track). Do people here still go on Cracked?

Not really, AFAIK. Are you familiar with Bunny Ears or The Modern Rogue, by any chance? They each have some Cracked writers.

”pretty cool group of smart people”... nice to see we have someone fooled...

I abandoned cracked before that, I think most of us don't really go there that often. Yeah 2015 was a different time. It was peaceful and you would have never thought dude from Prairie Home Companion would be accused of sexual harassment. But the Matt Lauer stuff would not have come as a shock. Oh yeah and politics hoo boy that's the new Mario Party. Guaranteed to fracture families.

Well, now I want to hear about the weird ass tumblr phase haha. I love Tumblr, but what happens on Tumblr should probably stay there.

And thanks for those links jbobsully! Super helpful! I want to try to figure out how to do more non-academic writing (b/c I think academia is dead, corporate-controlled, obsolete, etc) so I came back here in part to figure out what was going on with Cracked/Internet writing.

Welcome back, Asami. I also am an aspiring writer, though I've put that on hold while trying to deal with my depression.

Come again now? When did we ever go through a Tumblr phase?
