However it has lead me to ponder, what would my fursona be?

 

I don't get the furry thing at all.  It never made much sense to me and I I think it's pretty odd that enough people feel that way to make some sort of coherent community.  It would probably revel something interesting about psychology or sociology if it was investigated thoroughly.  I find the lighter elements like animal ears, tails, and whatnot cute and/or attractive but I get kinda lost when the art turns into what amounts to werewolves with curves.  Some of it just gives me a gut level disgust that I have to work to suppress since I think that people should be allowed to pretty much do whatever they want as long as it doesn't hurt anyone else, which art and consensual roleplay don't.

I usually type that kind of thing up in Word or as a draft in gmail just for the auto save.

 


 

Also a quick question MF.

 

Do you have any links to some sort of freely available articles, videos, lectures, podcasts, etc about Platonism and, if applicable, the specific version(s) you most identify with?  I really only know much about middle Platonism and even that is only in the context of Gnostic Christian writings like some of the works from the Nag Hammadi library and the Gospel of Thomas.

It's here. Along with the 4 loaners from James: e-Q7, EX-600, Adagio V, EPH 100.

And after I paid $75, I am officially done with college. Yoohoo!

To my opinion Platonism itself is not really interesting. What is more interesting is that Platonism merges into a broader and very important  category called Idealism.

 

My preferred connections would be: Platonism - Idealism - great summary made by Arthur Schopenhauer ( George Berkeley, Immanuel Kant, Indian Philosophy, his interpretation of Christianity). But to say the truth I would easily skip Plato when describing Idealism.

 

Though Wikipedia says that he is not an idealist in the modern sense. As an idealistic dualist or dualistic idealist I can't agree with modern tendencies.

 

 

Plato's theory of forms or "ideas" describes ideal forms (for example the platonic solids in geometry or abstracts like Goodness and Justice), as universals existing independently of any particular instance. Arne Grøn calls this doctrine "the classic example of a metaphysical idealism as a transcendent idealism", while Simone Klein calls Plato "the earliest representative of metaphysical objective idealism". Nevertheless Plato holds that matter is real, though transitory and imperfect, and is perceived by our body and its senses and given existence by the eternal ideas that are perceived directly by our rational soul. Plato was therefore a metaphysical and epistemological dualist, an outlook that modern idealism has striven to avoid: Plato's thought cannot therefore be counted as idealist in the modern sense.

I was mostly asking because MF mentioned having a Platonist viewpoint earlier in the thread.

I just came back from checking my PM's. According to the fellow I just bought my new amp from I'll have a tracking number either later tonight or early tomorrow morning. Looks like Itoru is about to start her long journey to her new home in the Great White North. Both of the girls, Marilyn and Sally, are quite excited at the idea of having a new sister around for girl talk. I can hardly wait to see what Itoru is capable of, I think I'll throw my DT1350 at her and see what happens.

It refers to music that is indicative of specific altered states, music that taps into the same feelings, sensations, and experience that one has under the influence of specific chemical substances which shall go unnamed.

Yeah, I actually really enjoy a lot of Animal Collective and Panda Bear's stuff (skipping the first half of some tracks, though, which pisses a lot of people off, but seriously...), but have never thought of it as being psychedelic either and their more direct attempts at being such have been, in my opinion of course, bad.  They're a genre of their own I lazily call avant-garde.  I'm not particularly well-versed in the psychedelic genre, but if anyone were to ask me what seriously tripping feels like I could actually use this track as a point of reference:

 

 

I'm pretty bad at talking about music, but beside the obvious thematic cues in the lyrics the general introversion, constant use of past tense, and concessions of will consistently portray the ethos of someone debilitated from an overdose.  I feel like the droning buzz in the instrumentals is analogous to how I perceived my own body in such a state (especially my teeth) as well and, although I can't articulate exactly what it is, there's something missing in the track that draws my interest.  It's not negative space so much as an absent convention.

 

Edit: Actually, to Panda Bear's credit, the bridge to and the last half of "Take Pills" has always sounded like a mixture of adderall and vicodin to me.

 

Disclaimer: Driver 8 isn't cool for any of his substance abuse, kids.  Don't be like him.

 

Re: the Diablo 3 talk: I wasn't going to get the game, but my friend coaxed me into it a few hours ago; it's been pretty boring thus far and left me jonesing for Monster Hunter again.  I'll give itm ore of a chance over the next few days, though.  My character's Maganzo#1882 if anyone wants to add me.  I should probably go post that in an actual gaming thread, but truth be told I've only seen the forum index of this place a couple of times; I just bounce between new threads on the homepage and threads with replies at the bottom of my profile. 

 

If I may ramble here a bit: I plan on ordering the Fitear TG334's tomorrow and making that my last headphone purchase for quite some time.  1.) I'm not actually working right now and am siphoning funds off a finite source, but, more importantly 2.) I should really start appreciating what I actually have and developing other hobbies.

^ I probably won't do half this ****, but it's all incentive to stop buying audio gear for a few months.

Sorry to dump my problems on this thread, but it's one of the few places I feel comfortable.

My depression has struck back upon me really hard today. I've got intense apathy and the suicidal tendencies are swarming me.

Do you feel comfortable enough to elaborate?  That usually helps.

Yes elaborate and above all get yourself out and do something. The last thing you want is to be sitting in your room alone over thinking stuff. It's time for you to make a few calls and go do something if you can't find anyone to do something with then at least find someone to talk with on the phone.

I just got my tracking number and I'm getting the following from USPS "Delivery status information is not available for your item via this web site. A return receipt after mailing may be available through your local Post Office. " Guess it still hasn't entered their system yet. I'm so impatient when I get a new toy I'm like a kid at xmas.

I can't because I don't want the people involved to find out.

Essentially there was a girl who ended up being very manipulative. More than I can explain, more than the word does justice. She did so many bad things, lying, cheating, stealing. When I called her out on it no one believed me because she has a pretty face and a kind persona on the outside. And now she is ruining my life because she has lots of money and power. I don't even want anything from her except an apology, to admit that she did wrong. But she lives in her own world.

I gave up on her but my experience with her has creeped into the rest of my life. I trust no one anymore, especially girls. I feel like the world, especially the higher powers like the administration, are all against me, and that no one will ever believe my story that she did wrong. I feel incredibly alone. A lot of people use the word alone at my age in a naive way--"I feel so alone, I need a boyfriend or girlfriend"-- but I feel like I've learned the true meaning of the word alone. I don't know how to explain it other than feeling like I am trapped in my own mind with the entire world against me. If you've ever read 1984, I feel like Winston, the only person who notices that something is wrong, yet when I speak my mind I only get more in trouble and feel more insane.

I feel dumb to admit that this girl has ruined my life. I used to be the type of person who always saw the best in people--now I always assume the worst. She has destroyed me.

With all these negative thoughts and feelings of loneliness my depression came back. I don't know what to do.
