I was pondering a trend as of late that i have seen. especially here on vf but other places as well. Age and maturity seem to be getting out of sorts.
I was wondering also if my page makes me seem less mature then I really am. Ive found that most people find me very reponsible, that i don't lack social graces, basically that I am a fine, bur possibly misunderstood young man. biggest flaws being a weak heart, and a rash temperment at times. (see byronic hero).
but back to point i was trying to make; i look at pages of people who say they are in their twenties, they appear to be of the right age, in fact their pages have been active for 4-7 years since their mid to late teens.... yet their journals, profile content, public conversations all appear childish to me.? Is it a result of growing old on my part or is it them lacking the ability to mature either in truth or at least appearances.
considering all this I might completely re write all my profile content to reflect maybe a more current post 30 me. I have updated it on occassion, few times a year adding a music artist or movie, or some such thing....
I'll add to what EnterDragon wrote. I and the spousal unit just bought a house. No shortage of adulty-big-boy type responsibilities with something like that. I believe the HR types call it a 'major life event.' At any rate, we were recently at the hardware store (big shock, having just bought a house, I know!). The spouse is looking at various flowers and plants in the front of the place which is boring me to tears. So I'm standing there staring at the little flat-bed cart he had me fetch. What did I do next? The obvious thing of course. Hopped on and tried to start riding it like a skateboard around the parking lot. Without even turning around, he just says "You're an idiot..." So I guess my long-winded response is basically to say that there doesn't need to be a Great Wall of China between being an adult but keeping your child-like tendencies in full vigor!
So I'm on the train in london, and this guy walks onto the train. Its the last train of the evening, so its pretty dead.
He walks over, sits directly opposite me (bearing in mind he has a whole train to choose from) and sits staring at me. I make eye contact with him, and ask him if he wants to take a photo or if he's just practising his gargoyle face and I swear to god, the funniest shit happened.
He started hissing, and saying some prayer under his breath, and making all sorts of religious prayer gestures, and soon as the train stopped (in woodside park, which is a shitheap where noone lives) he ran off the train.
I kid you not, I've not laughed this hard since my sister ran full speed into a lamp post.
Here soon I am going to be posting some videos of my dance practice featuring some pretty ridiculous songs if I do say so myself. I heard some songs on the radio the other day on my lunch break at work and thought "I could probably dance to this and have fun with it." so NO JUDGEMENT! but laughs YES!
Besides, What the point of life if you take yourself seriously all the time?
In Germany for wave gotik treffen spreading some VF love with stickers and partying it up. Then off to kinetik festival in Montreal soo not too many VF updates from me for a bit so I hope you guys are holding up ok. Miss my Internet peeps
The first step to correcting a problem totes is to admit there is a fault. Congratulations on completing that stage. I now recommend that you sit down and contemplate where you want to go in life, because you have limited choices at the moment.Alu66, when did you go?
I do not think the point was if you like or not Faderhead..the point was how WFT has a wide spectrum of music types to offer...and due to the fact that is the biggest goth festival in the world it fluctuate to follow how things are evolving in the music world...None of you guys lives in Europe either so you have no exposure of what it is really happening here besides watching from the internet window...so you cant have the full grasp of the all picture...but again is just my opinion.
Your a fucking idiot Renatus. Frankiichan You are right on not knowing how it is in Europe. I didn't down at any events and would like to go to WGT and the other events that are always held every where else but here. I can tell you though here in the states it is bad. The only thing any one ever focuses out here is NIN and Marilyn Manson and Combi Christ. Which sadly, is the only thing ever played. The clubs here and the dj's do nothing to bring in new sounds that are happening unless you live in Los Angeles. One of the very few places on new music going on and sometimes some people here on this site don't do too much of a good job promoting new bands. I am aware of new bands and new sounds because I know where to look for them. Record labes and reading their sites from time to time is a good source for new music. Letting online sites bring new music into light limits your chances on expanding your knowledge as whatever the moderators or owners only expose what they want. I've been lucky to able to find bands and music that I have in the years I've been listening to music.
Talked to my little brother, I haven't seen him in forever. I've missed him so much. He's graduating and getting his BA in psychology, tomorrow! And he's a almost two year younger than me! I'm so unbelievably proud of him! I'm so happy I could cry, really.
