Hey! They'll be back. Don't know why they deleted, buy they'll be back, says Mel. :o)

What? No making of the sock channels and ranting about them in The Brig?
Geeze you people have gone soft.

I'm tuckered out, but actually...ya know, I should do a vlog about this (or if anyone can relate, by all means)- I'm kind of down about how the LV community fell apart. STILL.

I'm glad we're all here and we're still connected on the Ark, but it sucks that everyone else is everywhere.

The cumulative effect of it now makes me a little less willing to throw so much time and energy into any online stuff simply because I no longer trust the platform to preserve it.

Does that make sense?

lol- it's kind of like when you get burned by a lover and so you're guarded for a long time after. You don't let your guard down, you don't put as much into it...as you would say, Dan, they took the piss out of it.

or something. lol

Does this sound stupid?

It's the truth, though.

And the novelty is no longer there, which is a given.

That doesn't stop me from wanting to make videos. When I give myself the time, I still love it just as I always have. I love editing. I love playing. I still have so many ideas!!

It was the weirdest thing. We were so excited because Mel and Doug were finally coming to visit us. We even took showers and bulldozed the the stage props into a corner of our apartment so they'd have a place to sit. When they showed up, Doug was in a suit and tie, Mel was dressed like a Mormon (fringe) and they were carrying REALLY old bibles,...like,...50 years old. They started telling us how we needed to repent and believe in some prophet who went by the "earth" name of "Vanilla Ice" and that if we didn't repent and believe, we'd be left behind. It was all very uncomfortable but we smiled and offered them some herbal tea and then there was this strange humming sound that I'd liken to the sound of centrifugally forced air,..and then this beam of light came right through the ceiling of our apartment and we watched Mel and Doug just dissolve right before our eyes. Doug said one last thing before he disappeared and I swear it sounded like : " You suck ",..but I can't be sure. I know all of this sounds crazy, but I'm worried because we now have blood coming out of our taps and my husband has welts that form a portrait of some white punk who looks like he's trying to come off as a black dude. Does anyone know how to get rid of those ?

Blanchie- Wow, I thought I was alone in this.

Blast Nirvana. That helps, but if it doesn't all go away, top it off with some Barry Manilow. Preferably Copacabana.

Back to serious- Yeah, Sara- I guess I feel the same. I'm in touch with Mel, but I know stuff goes on with people that I'm not privy to and I know they feel they have to retreat because maybe it's the best thing for them for whatever reasons, but the cumulative effect of people just up and disappearing leaves me very weary about the online connections I've had (unless I've met them).

I've never understood the need to delete when you can just take a break. It leaves so many people feeling like they never mattered.

I also realized I'm not open to making new connections as a result of it.

k, I'll stop being Debbie Downer now.

Rams- you only validated what I've long suspected. But don't worry, the sex wasn't that good anyway.

Yes, well, I'm playful and so I thought you'd get it that when I threw the beret, it wasn't supposed to land on your head...

although considering where it was supposed to land, I could understand the confusion.

If you want them to ever come back, I think less visuals involving Syd waring tin foil hats and tossing berets at mini me and Rams growing a vagina and putting on his best Che Guevara face while in the throws of passion might help. Of course, I could be wrong and they are among the .00000000000032 percent of the online population that are attracted to that kind of imagery.
