    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.

    Podcastorinos

    Or podcasts for short. I listen to a shit ton. I commute 1 hour each way every day and spend the majority of my 8 hour work day alone. So that's close to 10 hours of media I consume Monday through Friday, plus a lot of Saturdays for some extra cashola. I figured I'd throw together a list of what's in my rotation in hopes that others would add thiers and all of us could find some cool new things to fuck with. Here goes.. Common Sense with Dan Carlin Dan Carlin is mostly known for his history podcast Hardcore History but his political/current events podcast (this one) is just as good, much shorter, and shows Dan Carlin to be a very level headed guy. Cortex Cortex is a podcast where popular youtuber CGPGrey is interviewed by his friend about how he works and what he does to stay focused. He is a very specific, queer person when it comes to organization but he has mentioned several things that have actually helped me to better myself when it comes to organization. Criminal Stories about criminals or criminals acts. Lots of fun. Hardcore History Every one of these episodes are several hours long and very interesting. Each episode is generally one of several in a series. Right now he is doing a series called King of Kings focusing on the Persian empire. DecodeDC American politics podcast by a guy that is a retired lobbyist. Detective 2 seasons so far that focus on one detective each season and tell his stories. Futility Closet a weekly podcast, which is hosted by a husband and wife team. Each episode spotlights a quirky or forgotten episode from history and presents a lateral thinking puzzle, in which one of them has to unravel an odd situation using only yes-or-no questions. Intelligence squared US debates Smart people arguing over serious things. Legends Thursdays Well known retired writer coupe interviews other writers. I listen when the guest interests me but I can't stand how uninformed coupe is. He has said before he has never read a book, and you can really tell by the vocabulary he uses and his extensive use of the word "like" and lack of sentence variety. I'm not trying to diss him, I have a lot of respect for him. I just wish he would try to limit his use of filler words and maybe study better interviewers and try to figure out what makes them good at what they do. Lore Lore is a bi-weekly podcast (and upcoming TV show) about the dark historical tales that fuel our modern superstitions. Each episode explores the world of mysterious creatures, tragic events, and unusual places My Brother, My Brother, and Me Stupid joke advice podcast where 3 brothers give shitty advice to listeners and yahoo questions people. Only listen if something described as "goofy" would interest you. Mystery Show A woman solves silly mysteries sent in by listeners. Only one season so far Radiolab Interesting podcast about nothing in particular. Most recent episode was about a woman who was born in the United states and does not have a birth certificate or is in any way documented as existing and her struggle as she attempts to become a citizen. Reply All A show about the internet and Internet culture Risk! A story podcast. There are some really good stories here, but the host is one of the most annoying S.O.B.'s to ever exist. His initial monologue lasts from 5 to 10 minutes and I highly recommend skipping it. Be warned, there is some extremely disgusting stories on this one, all true. Serial Has so far gone over the case of bowe bergdahl (sp?) And Anand saied (sp?). In depth and interesting. Snap Judgement Another true story podcast. This host isn't as annoying as the risk! host but isn't really worth listening to either. The Guardian's Long Reads Newspaper The Guardian takes some of its most popular articles and reads them to you, you lazy fuck. The Lapse Another true story podcast The Moth My favorite true story podcast The Partially Examined Life Philosophy podcast. Not recommended if you aren't already into philosophy in some way. The Young Turks Hard left US politics podcast No Agenda Right wing podcast that pretends it isn't right. Thinking Sideways Podcast about unsolved mysteries. Pretty level headed hosts that keep it interesting This American Life Ira Glass says things and they are interesting. This is Actually Happening True Story podcast about being in horrible situations Uhh Yeah Dude Two guys say stupid shit for an hour and have been doing it for over 10 years Us and Them Podcast about challenging your preconceived notions about others That's all I've got.
