Title: Where IS everyone?
Post by: Matt Gillis on July 08, 2008, 10:20:04 AM
Seriously, where IS everyone? I do realize that it's summer and a lot of people are probably outside or on vacation rather than hunched over a computer, but seriously, I'm waiting for a tumbleweed to roll by any day now  :bullwhip  :lol

*Gasp* Or maybe the events of O3 have unfolded already, 4 years early! Maybe I'm the only person left! Nooooo!

 :lol But on a more serious note, how are things as of late for everyone? We need to get some life back in here somehow.

I know, it's boring here, not even VFS is here. but i'm incredibly busy right now, travelling a lot so i can't waste my time on a forum that no one uses.

plus i've been trying to spread word of the band online, but no one appears to be biting; they either laugh at me, or just ignore it. i think the vacancy is a precursor to the site shutting down (GOD FORBID!), but it just died here, like the event's of "Hell on Earth" :lol

C'mon people!

VFS has been very busy, because she isn't even on DTF.

I'm on New York on vacations. So hai gaiz!

I've gone from working nearly full time to working nearly full time, having a girlfriend, playing volleyball two nights a week, hosting a radio show one night a week, getting things together to go back to school in the fall, preparing to move out on my own for the first time...

I've been so ungodly busy (with both work and pleasure) that the internets has just had to suffer a bit.

You call that an excuse Nick? God, just stop being so Lazy already! :lol

Kidding of course. We all get busy from time to time, I just am finding it weird how so many people disappeared around the same time. I don't suspect a conspiracy or anything though  :lol

I'm jumping around from festival to festival. I just got a press pass for the loreley open air and I'm looking for a place to rent a professional lens for my cam. I wanna do a really cool review for the guys at plantet.tt (they ran THE venue to go for if you want some cool music in vienna; the place is being torn down, but luckly they took over 2 new and even better ones, so prog and metal and prog metal will be getting lots more attention in the future over here)

other than that I've been all over my myspace page. and my yahoo im and skype are blinking restlessly. as y'all have spotted there seems to be a little summer hole on this forum  :rolleyes

also, I've been busy working and caring for my little one. (this is one of the shortest sentences in this message but it contains my main time consuming activities) and in the back of my head I've recently started to try to figure out how I could get and manage a post doc research position in nyc after I'm done with my ph.d. ... ok, that's 3 years from now, but I know shit like this takes forever to work out + I have a kid... very complicated venture...

besides that I'm reading a nice book "the sound of thunder" by wilbur smith; it doesn't really sweep me off my feet, but it's a good and relaxing pleasure read. in parallel I'm reading part 16 of terry goodkind's "sword of truth" series and I just thought I should start all over again cause I can't really recall what happened in parts 5-13  ;D

of course I'm also planning my son's birthday party; he's turning 4 next wednesday and we're gonna have a party with 7 kids (is 7 a good number ??) .. I'm scared.. luckily my mum's gonna help me and hopefully some other parents will stay. but I guess so, cause there's gonna be a bbq (no idea how to spell this word in its entire version).

hmm.. now what else? i bought 4 chairs at ikea today !! and I watered the flowers !! wow !!

ok, I guess I'll stop now  :P

I sincerely hope this page wont be shut down ...

That's a very existential question that could take decades to properly answer.

I was wondering where you disappeared to! Though quite obviously you've been busy in your absense, so it's good to know you weren't kidnapped from your bed at the age of 10 after wandering into a strange Austrian time machine. . .

That's correct. You can also say barbecue.

As far as this goes, I always spell it out as Capt. did, as "barbeque". I've never seen the "barbecue" spelling (not that I recall anyway), but I'm sure it's out there since "bbq" isn't really an acronym so much as it's a lazy abbreviation for the syllables it represents; so as long as the spelling sounds right, it's pretty much correct. Regardless, the common practice of abbreviating it means that the "true spelling" (if there even is one) has been lost to ambiguity, and thus we talk about how to actually spell the word in a music forum  :lol

Nonetheless, it's good to see people back, even if it is ony for a post or two   :tup

this forum is way too slow for people to bother coming in, therefore i have my time better wasted at dtf or five8 most of the time.

Well, to be honest my participation has been declining as well, just because it's getting slower and slower, and Charlie isn't around as much any more and stuff, so this forum isn't as it used to be. On ther other hand though, I can be a pretty busy guy at times, thus I like the slower pace so I am not overwhelmed with things to catch up on. I also like a smaller community where quality of thought and heartfelt, meaningful discussions are encouraged rather than everything being a nut house ALL the time like on other forums (though a nut house IS fun from time to time!). So that is why I keep coming back here, plus the fact that I want to continue to support Dominici even if it just means I am a forum statistic.

Neither Charlie nor Jen are here....  :sadpanda

I know... it's strange... :hmm since Charlie hasn't been on the site often, he might be focused on other things towards the development of finding his place in the prog scene, so he's puttong the site on the backburner for a while in order to keep going.

well I guess that in a few weeks everyone will settle down for school and other things, and attendence will spike, especially at the end of the year... hopefully.

I finally finished my training last week, and just have to take my written state test on Thursday. I also don't have a computer to use (I'm at an internet cafe).
