Whenever things aren't too cheery in my life, I can always come on here and talk to you guys about anything, something I'm not too comfortable doing in person. I'm close to people in real life obviously but there just isn't that bond that I have with them that I have with this community. We've never met but still, I feel better talking to you guys about things than people I know.
Sep7agon obviously isn't as big as it was, but I'm just happy that the few of you that still post here still come to this website. I'm glad to still be a part of this community for the past 9 years. Wow... 9 years now, crazy. Where did the time go...
Whether we get along or not and despite our differences, I want to thank you guys for being a part of my life. I never would have imagined being a part of this community for this long.
I like that some bands take their older stuff and remaster it, making it sound better as if it released today. Some bands are great at doing it, but some bands destroy their work by doing it for whatever reason.
Take Megadeth for example. The Cryptic Writings album is an album that's not that popular or liked by fans of the band but I enjoy it a ton and I think its great, one of their best albums with the last great lineup. The original version of the album sounds flawless but Dave Mustard Stain went with a George Lucas approach and added stuff to some of the songs, changed them, and removed some things too in the remastered version. Nothing major, but easily noticeable when listening and it just doesn't feel right. He did this for every album pre-2000 and it's rare to find the original versions anywhere.
Iron Maiden I think are a good example for remastering their music. The only change I noticed on their older stuff was the removal of the intro from the song Powerslave which was basically the outro of the previous song Back in the Village. Other than that, their music sounds really great in the original and remastered versions respectively.

We have 2 big palm trees in my front yard where a bunch of birds like to call home.
There used to be a family of owls that lived up there but I think they moved to another palm tree that's taller down the street from my house.
But the bird that intrigues me is this small, grayish one that always has babies around this time of year every year. If it's the same bird that's been doing this then that's pretty cool. I guess earlier today a chick fell out of the tree and my dad got him and put him in one of our old bird cages and brought him inside for the night. The same thing happened last year too. My dad would leave him outside near the palm trees and every once in a while the mom would fly down and feed him after feeding the rest.
I wonder when he'll get the strength to start flying.

What the fuck does that even mean lmao
A couple of days ago, a C-130 crashed in Georgia. All 9 people on board were killed.
An F-16 crashes while trying to land, pilot made it out okay thankfully.
F-16 pilot is killed in a crash at Nellis Air Force base
Apache helicopter crashes while training, both pilots were killed.
4 marines were killed when their Super Stallion crashed.
These are just some examples as to what's been going on recently. There have been way more accidents of all branches of the military. According to this article, accidents have risen 40% since 2013.
I'm not exactly sure how often accidents like this happen, but to me, it's been happening way more than I remember. It feels like every other day I log on and another one has been reported.
Who or what is to blame for these? Are they all caused by human error, budget cuts, or something else?

After months of speculating MechaGodzilla's potential appearance in Steven Spielberg's Ready Player One, Variety has reported that the Iron Giant does in fact do battle with Godzilla's mechanical doppelganger.
I finally had the balls to talk to this girl at work, the one that I asked you guys for advice on.
I told myself that it was either now or never and kept going back and forth about it. Then I decided to walk up to her since I had the chance to.
I walked up to her said "Hey, how's it going?" and her face turned super red before she said hi back. From there we started a conversation that lasted probably about 5 minutes. She's super cool too which is great. It was time for her break so we stopped talking then.
I don't know what had it in me but I'm proud of myself. I'm gonna try to talk to her again for just a little bit before we go home.
Edit: the dream is dead
Driving home earlier while this tumbleweed comes out of nowhere and I didn't see it until the last second so I had no chance to dodge it. It hit the right side of my car and thankfully there weren't any scratches on my front right tire and fenders.
It wasn't even that windy outside either so I had no idea how a big ass tumbleweed like that was rolling across the highway.
These past couple of days I have been hit with the sudden feeling of loneliness, been stressed out over nothing, having difficulty sleeping, and also not enjoying anything I do like playing games or watching movies. It's been awhile that I've felt like this, not since after high school when I was at the lowest part of my life and had nothing going for myself.
It doesn't make sense to me because since then I've been more successful and have more than I could ask for. Hopefully this is just something that will pass like it has before.
The dumbass gets out of his car right in the middle of the highway at a stoplight when it turned green because he thought the car behind him hit his car or something when it was nowhere near it. I was 2 cars behind this idiot and was honking my horn so he can get back in his car because he was holding up traffic, seriously, there was like 15 cars behind me on the lane I was in. He notices me and waves his arm at me with a "go around" gesture but I couldn't because there was too many cars going by in the other lane. Finally, I get to go in the next lane and he pulls up next to me at the next stoplight. There's two lanes to turn left onto the freeway and as we were turning, I flip him off like this and kept my finger there all the way until we got onto the freeway. While I was doing that, he does this at me and then the dude takes the first exit while I kept going. Did he really think I was gonna waste my time and follow this idiot?
That pissed me off so much man, its people like this that shouldn't ever be allowed behind the wheel of a vehicle. This fucktard should have driven to the side of the road and parked instead of getting off in the middle of a god dammed highway, especially a busy one. Something like this could have caused a wreck.
The intersection where he got off.
I hope it will since Wolfenstein got one.
I replayed through DOOM and it really is one of the best games this generation. All the guns kick ass and feel satisfying to shoot, good enemy variety that are all fun to fight, exploration is rewarded, glory kills are always fun to do, and the soundtrack melts your face.
