    100% what Yody said. The ability to shut off that critical function in your brain is gonna take a lot of short starts and pressing ons. Expect to fail, but don't give up. At some point you'll realize that you regularly get lost in drawing, and...

    Hello, I struggle with this a lot too. Your home life sounds pretty rough right now and that definitely makes it harder to create things. Americans in particular are bad at understanding environmental influence, we tend to underestimate it and...

    Yeah, sharing space with others like that can be hard. Possibly build a little shed? Strictly used for your art.

    Seven Habits of Highly Effective People. The author is Mormon, but don't let that bias you! The whole bit on time management, where he has you put things into different boxes of importance is pretty enlightening. More enlightening than it...

    Dogs are good. Also, make sure you have an outlet, some hobby you make yourself stick to, otherwise you might stagnate and that'll just add to your loneliness. Control what you can to keep your energy as good as you can, and you'll end up...

    I've been stoopid and lonely a bunch too! Having a dog helps. ;)

    To quote myself, "sometimes". I got the impression this guy is going solo. That increases the odds. But yeah, I think it mostly happens in areas where people have taken over.

    There's people that live in the redwoods out near Arcata. I think mostly hippy types. Year round, so remote enough for that, or else forestry service let's them be, Idk. Haven't been out there myself, but one lady I grew up with lives out there.

    Hells yeah! Food for thought for sure. Maybe I need to stop taking all this shit "so seriously".

    Didn't watch the video but I've seen other long in depth interviews with Daryl Davis. Interesting cat, I like his style. Every time? Because I can rattle off a dozen just off the top of my head that we're 100% justified. I can also think of a...

    First track of one of a solid album.

    Album: Heaven or Las Vegas. Some of the prettiest ethereal shit. Kinda like one or two Cranberries songs I can't think of at the moment. Here's the first track.

    Right on, Brother. I struggle w lonliness too, and reckon most humans do. Remember the book I recommended in your book thread? Thats the theme of the book. Its counter intuitive though, as you think finding a a group will quell the loneliness...

    That sounds like a good place to be. To many people get stuck on the supposed opportunities/freedom that the road will provide that they neglect everything around them. And then they hit the road and the homeless aspects of it really sink in for...

    Sometimes I wish I was asexual and aromantic, but the truth is, I'm VERY (hetero)sexual, and VERY romantic! Well...You know that's got me thinking. I do see this time as an opportunity to really grow in the ways that are truly important. I'll...

    Lol. Well I guess I might as well admit. That maybe my motives for both even associating with or even considering joining the LDS, and my motives for going to an orgy, are pretty much the same, which is just, loneliness. But I get the impression...

    I've heard people say that the difference between good times and bad times is that in bad times we feel we have no options, while in good times we feel we do. @Wheat2020 I think that fits with what you said about loneliness. For myself, I don't...

    If you want that kind of "suitcase access", consider the Kelty Redwing. It comes in multiple sizes. 50 liter is the largest. I got it used (brand new condition, though) on Amazon for 50 bucks. I think they retail at 140 or 150 or something.

    THIS Ultimately, I don't care about arguments of what these people *deserve*. What they deserve isn't necessarily what's productive. It can potentially be counterproductive. I'm not advocating anyone go out and befriend kkk members, but...

    I’m mean yeah. That’s how people generally self-defend. Until somebody attempts to do you harm, you don’t normally go about assaulting people because they could. I’m lucky enough to live in an area where racism/anti-semitism/homophobia hate...

    My taste in music shifts around, but I just started getting back into ebm (electric body music -subgenre of industrial) D.A.F. and Nitzer Ebb so far are my two favorites. ("All Over" by Nitzer Ebb is a killer track) NIN brought this genre to...

    I truly believe in finding freedom though independent production (working for yourself), technically this is capitalism but I call it survival. It's actually one of the biggest lessons I've learned through the DIY/punk ethic.

    I guess I'm guilty of making the same backhanded comment towards Coywolf. Is it really backhanded though? Is it really a high horse issue? Or is it just one person being completely honest with another person about how they once felt about them...

    Ooooh, yeah, I only edit my posts to correct a word, spelling mistake, or rephrase a sentence. I hit the "agree" response on that post, like what if you'd added something atrocious to it after I did that? 😄 Or what if I just missed a good part...

    Yeah, I'm not exactly of the opinion that capitalism = fascism or anything that extreme. I call myself a "soft libertarian". I'll vote for Bernie, if he makes the nomination though. I totally agree, it's religious/spiritual conformity/death...

    Yeah, you're right. I'll try to leave out the sarcasm when it comes to sensitive topics. Actually, that could maybe be a good forum rule? Especially with politics. Just cut out a lot of potential misunderstanding, and keep the threads more...
