in some kind of form-mirrors-content way
because of that fucking concrete discussion.

How are we talking about a concrete subthread when that very thread contains this beauty http://drownedinsound.com/community/boards/social/4308961#r6387716
I totally saw that and it didn't even occur to me that it was one of the most inane things I had ever seen

how boring was that?
though I'm not terribly convinced by this piece. I chalk it up to being 2 year old (boring, sean!). Either that, or what joeymahone said up ^there.

I'm really bored.
which probably makes them all boring.
with your stupid male 'hobbies' and just toss each other off.
that was a real good sleep. thanks Meo
Too busy will all my hobbies.
JFC. Too busy hobbying to type properly.
How did you know?
but ctrl and f'ed for creaky and no results.
surely some mistake?
How are bores defined exactly?
but I think I'm going to wait a while now.
Which was boring.
but it was really boring.
