Hmm … a life-size Dara 'doll'? or Dara silencing a carving of someone else? Either way, good to see that you’re still around.

Okay, I'm gonna take requests, since I'm two for two on this thread alone. Next, perhaps I should try to summon TJ Newton from the wreckage of his Fiat 126?

Close. My oldest son found a rather novel way to make the point many a son has felt compelled to make down the centuries: Does the old man ever shut up? Most wouldn't have the wherewithal to carve a life-sized facsimile of the old man's head from wood.

Here's what I want to know: where are all the TW threads of the past? I wanted to stroll down memory lane just now but they were all gone, even those that I'm sure I would have looked back on and enjoyed. Remember those heady days of the mid/early internet? Where is Adam???

PS: I did go to college but it was an indulgent/upper middle class waste of time: Fun, but stupid; I learned no actual skills.

It now seems to me that I put a fair amount of emphasis on celebrating my inner asshole on this board back in the day. Some of what I wrote then, I now regret. But I won't tell you which bits those are. You'll just have to guess.

...should've gone to some place better. It's as though you've beaten TW and you're still here eight years later …. That's hellish.


This is rather apt. At the moment I feel as though I'm in some obscure Buddhist hell of my own karmic-devising, especially since I've felt compelled to visit TW of late.

All these reminiscences are undoubtedly profound. But when it comes to ghostly echoes from the abyss, I to think that the saddest, yet most tragically-beautiful, thing about this thread is how it takes us back to a time when T.J. Newton was still on this earth with us. Many a night I've woken to the sound of chains rattling, and wondered whether it was him. His untimely death was perhaps the dark seed that started TW's demise, just as in Germanic mythology, Baldr's death inaugurates the process that leads to Ragnarok.

And you know, I toured an 18th century home a while back, and the guide told us about the old belief that when someone dies in a house, it is necessary to cover up all the mirrors, lest the spirit get trapped in there until the end of time. Well, what if there is some truth in that? And what if it applies also to the internet? Could T.J.'s soul be trapped on these very fora, like a spectral virus? It's a chilling thought.

ghosts always signify a deeper, darker history new [re: strangeDivine] Reply to this post

Perhaps i should dump the whole lot of threads i have here (in a zip file). They were way too cumbersome to edit manually, even if it means we can't add to them.

Looking through them, there seems to be an unhealthy fascination with a yorkshire terrier abuser. Your favourites are omitted for sure.

I suppose i need to find a file host which doesn't delete stuff after x number of downloads or ~7 days.

Man would rather will the void than nothing at all

You should do that. It's an auspicious time - what with a new Bowie album coming out (gasp) and a slew of old geezers returning to this site in response. It's a better time than any in the past few years to bring back the old threads. I mean, Sylvanelf posted today! What has happening?

I often think about what a big impact TW had on my life. I don't mean to get sincere here, but it was a great outlet for a teenager in Bush's America. TW had a big impact on me intellectually. And it also made my "real" life seem more tolerable! On the other hand, I have some apprehension about seeing too clearly into the past. I'm sure I'll find that there was far more dog molestation than intelligent discussion than my sometimes rosy memory suggests.

By the way, I think that the world did in fact end this December and the sudden revival of these fora is a symptom of that.
