Dudes like Lando.
1. People who are decent fishermen, but lack the wit, humor and writing skills to contribute to a place like this in a meaningful way. They, in turn, use groupthink and "what this guy said, wasn't that cool when we got drunk together in 2014...fuck posuers!" to fit in, and the marrow of the board is slowly sucked out, like fucking cancer.
2. Threads that used to either be filled with incredible content (what are you tying), unmatched humor (local board pics), or just plain insight and levity because those who were accepted had a mutually destructive pact together. Now these same threads are filled with one sentence posts and hardly any new content. Even the "old guard" go days without posting.
3. The fact that the Rockies caught fire in regards to a destination for people to move to. Like it or not, this mag and editor were based here, and a lot of its members were part of that scene...before it was bought and sold, ultimately pricing and driving anyone out that wasn't willing to deal with the fact that the area is no longer what it was. This shit happens, but it has been put into hyperdrive since 2012.
4. Fucking Australians....goddamned criminals. Every one I meet has the same M.O. I wish I was joking, seriously. They are fucking descendants of hundreds of years of people who weren't fit for jail time in the British Empire. Someone decided that these people had to go, and boated them to an island out in the pacific. Now we're supposed to embrace them with open arms, like the whole fucking continent isn't full of murderers, children of murderers, and fucking truants?"
Why do I keep coming back? Because it was that good, and this isn't a swan song written by someone who flamed out. It's an honest assessment on how a place that was known across the globe got cut off at the knees by a certain type of member.
The Drake always had a bunch of people to hate, and I was near the top of that list. What kept it going was that it was every man for himself, a battle royale, not a couple gay fraternities with reunions every 6 months, like a bunch of dudes trying to relive high school football when they are in their 40's.
Lord let me die, but not die......out
