About iloveboxcars

  1. I did the same awhile back. The way I made it work is by getting collections of short stories, short novels, and easy reads. Nine Stories by J. D. Salinger, anything by H. G. Wells but The Time Machine or The Invisible Man would be my recommendations, and for easy short reads I would start with The Maltese Falcon by Dashiell Hammett, or 1984 by Orwell. That's how I started anyway. I then moved on to books that were still short but had a little more meaning behind them such as Common Sense by Thomas Paine or On the Abolition of All Political Parties by Simone Weil. Now I'm going through the classics as I have time. Currently on Dracula.

    The Where Are They Now, prelude to a 12oz Reunion Thread

    I feel like I already did this. Married. Bought a house in Oakland. Currently listening to Princess Nokia. I've seen some nutty shit thanks to security clearances. Recently researched and bought a succulent, to give you an idea of how tight my life is.

    Satellite Internet (when DSL isn't an option)

    Rick and Morty is pretty funny. I would recommend it.

    Legends Thursday

    Pretty sure it's over now. Coupe says he has real life shit to deal with and this was taking up too much time.

    Noob alert! Question about numbers

    At the beginning it was street numbers now it's just whatever random number they want to attach to their name. Sorry officer, that's really all there is to it.

    (Older) NYC oontzers: Anyone know the story on this guy?

    Damn, in a Mexican restaurant at a community table and everyone around me is acting like a penis didn't just show up on my phone. Fuck this new Internet everywhere you go shit. After this I'm buying a flip phone.

    everyday life tips and tricks

    I find it hard to stay focused on the story with books on tape. I listen to podcasts for my commute. When you're house cleaning leave the fan on your HVAC system running and brush the grill to your return duct so all the dust gets ducked into the filter instead of falling to the floor and creating more of a mess.

    What book are you reading? Part 20

    Just finished up The Shining starting on Gardens of the Moon by Steven Erikson. I've been struggling to pick books up lately so I'm just going through as much easily digestible stuff as possible. Shining was the first time I've read anything by Stephen King aside from On Writing. I had also never seen a movie adaptation of one of his books, so I threw the shining movie on directly after finishing the book. The movie was dog shit terrible in my opinion, but you just can't transfer the psychological aspect of the book all that well, I think. Most of the book is in everyone's own head which is impossible without some shitty narration decisions in a movie.

    Pizza Appreciation Thread

    I'm on a diet right now but straight up miss the fuck out of pizza. I could fuck with 711 cardboard crust right now, that's how low down I am.

    What is your job and was school debt worth it?

    Climate Control for Critical Systems (read: Air conditioning for computers) I'm in a union. So I didn't pay for school, I have the Cadillac of insurance plans (dental/vision/health) for my wife and myself. I can (and will) retire when I'm 55 unless the business I start in the next few years takes off. They're (the company I work for) is about to pay for me to go to school to learn how to program building management systems (essentially the brains behind all the mechanical stuff). I make slightly over scale at just under $66 an hour. Basically: fuck college bruh.

    Dumb shit I'd buy if I won the lotto thread.

    Pinzgauer's are awesome. There a place out east that restores and sells them I'm partial to the Volvo C303 body design. Parts for both are a bitch to come by, but both can be had for about 20k working. Unimogs are also pretty good and have a much wider following in the states than a pinz or C303. If I won the lotto I would hire a financial advisor and figure out how to live only on the interest accrued from the money but I'd dip in at the start and do these things>>> buy a house in the east bay hills. Along Skyline Blvd or deeper in but not as far as Alamo or bullshit like that. Let my parents and in laws retire. Aside from that get the wife one of those Teslas and sell her prius. Maybe get myself a dedicated track bike. Guns. Travel. I'm a simple man with simple dreams.

    The New Forum

    Would you consider moving all non graffiti related subforums back into channel zero as it was in the past. There will appear to be more action on the forum as it is concentrated to one area instead of 5 or 6 different non graffiti forums and will also attract more responses as people who visit ch0 and not art or what have you will notice and probably respond to more discussions. It was a smart move to expand the forum when 12oz was at its peak, but now that it has gone back down fewer options for users would benefit the users that already visit and simplify the choices for users that are new.
