He's such a bitch! [re: TheDeuce]  

Before we begin, I'd like to note that I bear no personal ill-will towards Mr. Two-hole, but I'm trying to follow this, and it ain't going well.

In reply to:

I've always thought that the Coffee Shop name for the board was the greatest analogy.


See, good analogies, let alone great ones, should have a consistent throughline by which a person can tell what it is you're trying to say exactly, and this one goes off track pretty damned fast.

In reply to:

Eight years ago or so, when I first came across this board, that's what TW was, a coffee shop. You could come inside, the guy behind the counter would greet you by name, and even pour you your favorite flavor.You would sit down at a table, maybe a few friends would even stop in and sit a spell at your table with you and talk the night away, while sipping your coffee.


OK, I'm with you so far. TW is the shop, the threads are the tables, and your friends are the posters who come talk on your threads. What fun!

In reply to:

Then Starbucks came to town and put the little neighborhood Coffee Shop out of business. Being a lover of Coffee (Bowie) you decided to give it a shot. The coffee was good, the place looked good, and the customers were coming in by the dozens.


So Starbucks = Bowienet? Good analogy, I'm with you still. Except that TW is still "in business," no?

In reply to:

Then one day you noticed that the quaint little shop had gotten overrun. You had long lines to get in to get your coffee, the guy behind the counter didn't know you from Adam, nor did he care about the coffee that he was pouring.


Uh...you're losing me. I thought the little coffee shop was out of business, but now you're saying it's overrun with people? Or is that Starbucks/Bowienet? Do the mods there not care about Bowie/Coffee either? Or else we're still talking about TW here, in which case I'm guessing "long lines" = Oops! messages? Ok, that's good too.

In reply to:

Looking for a seat you'd find people that had made tables that were available to the general public "their seats" and wouldn't welcome anyone else outside of their clique. If you sat alone and eavesdropped on a conversation, when you threw in your two cents they'd glare at you and tell you to "butt out."


Well shit, if I were at a coffee shop with my friends and some weirdo started butting into our conversation from the next table, I'd do the same thing! That aside, I'm pretty sure we're talking about TW again (you can tell because of the word "clique"), in which case I'd have to ask folks like Froggy, Vanessa, and any other relatively recent joiners how many times they've been asked to leave.

In reply to:

New flavors (albums/tours) stopped coming out, or it was a long time in between new releases. Pretty soon you noticed that something novel was happening in the Starbucks: no one was talking about the coffee anymore. They were talking about tea, or other varieties of drink. It just wasn't the same as the old Coffee Shop.


So if TW (which I'm now pretty sure is Starbucks) stops selling new coffee (i.e. talking about Bowie albums), isn't that the fault of the corporate office (Bowie)? Isn't it better that we still have tea and crumpets to keep us interested, rather than just shutting the whole place down?

In reply to:

You still pass by the site where the old Coffee Shop was and let out a sigh to see that it's now a Barnes and Noble. From time to time you take a peek into the Starbucks to see what's going on. Between the vegan muffins and the cd's on the counter, there's almost no signs of coffee.


I don't think Barnes & Noble would allow tubgirl posters plastered all over their walls, but hey, let's run with it - B&N is a pretty wide-ranging shop, with most of them stocking books, music, periodicals, and, yes, Starbucks, and they're all more than happy to let you laze around in their comfy chairs doing nothing all day. Which is actually not a terrible analogy (by these standards) for the all-inclusive, all-encompassing nature of TW, except that instead of being bought out by a major corporation, it's like the little Coffee Shop you rememeber was turned into a co-op run by it's best customers.

And you know what a smart co-op does when their coffee supplier craps out? They open the doors to tea and shortbread and everything else, and they let their customers dictate the discourse. Hell, they don't even mind it when the old fart caffeine addicts periodically stick their head in the door to complain about all the fun the co-op kids are having.

TW is what we've made it, every last one of us, and I for one am pretty damned proud of the whole lot.

Oh yeah, and we still have plenty of coffee, but our baristas are entitled to make fun of the customers if they order orange mochalattes.

In reply to:

Time to move on with life.


Ya think? Be sure to let us know when you have.

Put it to his head and said, "Ya scared ain't ya?"
He said, "Hustler for death, no Heaven for a gangsta."
