Don't hate the Pylsur, hate the game.

In related news, I finally found my Felt Mountain CD. It was in an old Sony Disc-Man. Beat that for old school.

Damn, Moorwhelp, to avoid reblogging this with me as a source, you re-posted my image yourself? That takes commitment, I’ll give you that.

Alert: Area North of Bárðarbunga Volcano Evacuated

I’m so cut off from things, I only just heard about this.

archwayofaerodynamics:

as you might have noticed we’ve been absent from tumblr for a while and will continue to be absent until after our move is completed

except when slaine decides he just has to share some david byrne videos and shit instead of putting crap in boxes

Hi. I got a tape I wanna play.

Hey all, I just discovered this convo, after I spent a while harnessing my writing to try to address the issue in a more polite fashion on the forum thread.

1. Yes, it makes you a bad person.

2. My frightened husband, girlfriend, mother, father, doctors, emergency personell, FFXIV guild, etc can all confirm things for you if you ever have further doubts. I also have a 27 min video on my ipad with further symptoms, but my cable isn’t working and it’s too long to email atm.

I’ll be sure to follow up on my tumblr later with some medical reports if it’ll make you feel any better, ok?

3. You’re free to review my acres of hypergraphia for evidence if you like, or read the Midnight Disease, by Alice Flaherty.

4. Bite me.

I’m glad you are seeking help, but don’t cross the line. We are not friends.

Any who are willing to iterate

And any who are willing to support my mission to reform mental health care

Are my friends.

As pleasant as that sounds, friendship requires a degree of affection or at least respect from both parties. The only thing more tragic than a one-sided love must be a one-sided friendship.

I hope that clears things up.

You would be mistaken to call it one-sided. Any exchange of ideas is a communication, which forces me to evaluate and iterate my own convictions. By doing so you have contributed to my advancement, and as soon as we arrive at a peace, you become my friend.

To quibble over the definition of the word to soothe your own pride, you deny the truth of the evolution of language and hinder progress.

We can’t be friends because you have always come across as a jackass. It’s true that it is a matter or pride for me to make it clear that I am not your friend. I wouldn’t want anyone to think that I would be friends with a jackass. And let’s not drag poor old language into this, it never did anything to you — why must you abuse it so? Overall, your post is an evolutionary dead-end.

No. We cannot be friends. It would compromise my brand.

I think Necero is on Tumblr (at least he sends me anons), maybe you could be friends with him. I feel you would hit it off.

Not your friend,

Slaine

While preparing for our move

We pulled some things out of storage that had been sitting there for seven or eight years. Only a few of the boxes had gotten damp, but, of course, they were the boxes with my books.

My complete collection of everything published by William S. Burroughs — of which I was inordinately proud as a teenager —got wet, and now they are all  wavy/bendy shaped. It made me very sad to see it.

To make it up to him, I repacked him with Denton Welch. I hope they spend the next few years in dry conversation.

Before I leave again, I want to say to Satterly — if she is on Tumblr — that she needs to contact people who can actually help. All the good thoughts and MG armchair medicos in the world will provide no real support.

She is here, as vonds, and is actually attempting to get the help she needs, but seems to be having some difficulty finding someone to appraise her condition accurately. With traditional avenues failing to yield satisfactory results thus far, I suppose I can see why she’d try the more scattershot approach.

The neuropsychiatrist seemed to be helpful but she lost the contact numbers he gave. I don’t think that can be fairly held against medical professionals and it doesn’t really warrant seeking help from video gamers.
People that need help need to be encouraged to get actual help.

Also , she should keep a file with details on all appointments as well as doctor names to take with her whenever she seeks help .
Id also suggest taking someone along who she trusts and can help relay information if communication is an issue at that time.

Does it make me a bad person if I don’t feel very sympathetic to what seems like an acted out video and cry for attention?

I agree that it seems like a cry for attention coupled with a questionable self-diagnosis, but even if that is true then there is still some kind of deeper issue causing such a desperate and dramatic bid for attention. So, even if I questioned the veracity of the claim, the fact that such a claim was made would still lead me to encourage the person to seek help.

One doesn’t really need to think she is Joan of Arc to require medical assistance.

Everything already said. Im gonna only add in two things.

I’m putting this out there for two reasons.

1. It’s hilarious
2. I’m looking for help

from the youtube video.

and that having been a person that has involuntary movements and having been around a lot of people who have involuntary movements for a lot of different reasons

it seems voluntary. Not only does it have that feel but the expulsion of air would indicate that the jerk isn’t a ‘painful’ happening.

The forum posts themselves are all giving me the vibe that this person has a problem associated with needing attention in this manner and that they have possibly not genuinely been seeking help, but i dont want to pass judgment too imperiously.

i will just say that i dont feel good about it

because if indeed she does have a problem in the vein of wanting attention then the odds of her lookign for help for it are very slim
