I'm sorry things aren't working out for you. Are you still going to the methadone clinic or am I thinking of someone else? How are you doing with that? You talk about your addiction quite often and I know how hard it is. It seems that you have taken steps to better yourself so I am just wondering about your recovery. If you wouldn't mind talking about it I'd like to share ideas with you.

I'm not sure if anyone here has watched American Horror Story. I really liked the first season and the 2nd was okay. I didn't like Coven. I can't put my finger on why I didn't care for it, I just lost interest. Freak Show is on now and I'm into it so far. The killer clown is very unnerving.

Edit: I just watched the second episode. The Fiona Apple bit with the mosh pit and crowd surfing was just too corny. I need a new show for me and my fiancé to watch at night now that she's caught up on Boardwalk Empire. I'll go back and give the Knick a second chance. The second episode was boring so I moved on. That was premature, I'll give it another go.

Oh my god Boardwalk Empire, nooooooooooooo.
I haven't watched episode 6 yet. So far this season reminds me of a cross between Breaking Bad (Margaret is Skylar and always has been), the Godfather 2 and 3, and a much darker version of Forrest Gump (Van Alden is Forrest)

Just watched Episode 6 and I agree with your sentiment.

His episode on Ferguson was really good.
I saw it. It was really good. I also like the one on FIFA a lot, too.

Since I don't have HBO I just now started watching John Oliver's show. I started watching clips on YouTube and it's fucking hilarious. The Net Neutrality piece had me cracking up. It also made me realize I need to watch the news more often. I had no idea that cable companies are pushing for two tiers of internet speed.

lol, internet is a thing if I remember corractly, lol
i thought i could relate, and if it was too much trust too soon, yeah i think i remember her saying that was exactly the i said "i feel like i deserve sex" might have caused some offense, but all that i meant was that i felt like I was finally worth it

I don't know about anyone else but a young man in california making statements such "i feel like i deserve sex" is very reminscent of the horror Elliott Rodgers unleashed.
That's exactly what Elliott Rodgers and all of his asshole chatroom followers say. It makes me wonder, if he's actually saying this kind of crazy bullshit, what is he holding back? The dude needs help.

Joshua, could you please stop trying to post through rap, poetry, or whatever it is you're trying to do? Pretty please?

Rory posted as I was making my post. He is spot on.

This guy has to be applesandonions, only more irritating. I had no idea that was even possibles.

Oh and Room 237 is somewhat interesting at first but they are all reaching and sound like crazy people. Some of the things they point out are interesting but the dots don't connect as well as they would like them to.

I hate it when people who do not regularly smoke try to bum cigarettes off of me. This used to happen a lot when I would go to bars and people would be drinking but also happens, at times, when someone is talking to me outside and wants to bond over a cigarette. They're really fucking expensive so if you're a "drunk smoker" go buy some before hitting the bars or liquor store. If you want to talk to me outside while I'm smoking, it is not essential for you to smoke, either.

Now if you are a regular smoker and just happen to be out, that's completely different and will tolerate it as long as it doesn't happen every day.

I don't even know what you're talking about 3/4 of the time. Are you taking any medications?

What the fuck is going on here? I'm really not sure what to make of him but I'd like to think that I don't have much in common with this guy, contrary to his claim.

i don't remember making any claims to have anything in common with you, i don't remember even talkiong to/about you...

I was being a little sarcastic in my post but it was the above statement that I used to distance myself from you. It's not the fact that you put gender queer in your statement that led me to say that but rather the copious amounts of shitty rap and the general mouth diarrhea that you seem to have acquired.

I don't think you should be banned, I just think you are annoying.

I just got done with the Wire and now it's on to the last season of Boardwalk Empire. I hope it's better than last season.

I really liked the Wire. Brett was right, season 4 was the best. I liked season 5 but was kind of disappointed with how Omar ended up. I also would have liked to have seen Marlo go. It was cool how some of the kids took the place of the adult characters.

I just realized now that I'm re watching Boardwalk Empire that the actor who played Omar plays Chalky White. I don't recall seeing him in anything else which is a shame given how talented he is.

The Wire is a show I think you need to finish the entire seasons before really judging them. Season two doesn't start off as strongly but I think the final episodes are better than the first season.

Season 4 is where it's really at though.
I just finished season 3 and it turned out to be pretty good. I liked it more than season 2. I'm watching the first episode of season 4 now. I have high hopes for it given your high opinion. You are usually right when it comes to tv and movies. Omar is still my favorite character. I'd like to see Brother what's his name team up with him again. They work well together for being so different. I can't believe what happened to Stringer. I figured that Avon and Stringer's positions would be the opposite of what they are now.

I just started watching The Wire and am halfway through season 2. This show is addictive, though I liked the first season more. Omar in court was pretty great. I would like to see him more. He's one of the best characters. I don't know why I didn't watch this show sooner given all of the hype.

Apparently, Vince Vaugn is going to be in season 2 of True Detective. I like the idea even though he hasn't been in a good movie in years.

Be a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (I'm filling out the form), have far less anxiety, have a stable job with consistent clients, get married by the end of the year and have a happy marriage, be a good step-father to my fiancee's children, be a good and supportive husband, get physically healthy (I NEED insurance), and help my clients.

The Vince Neil one took me back to the days of VH1's Behind the Music.
This was my first thought, too! I also remember the Behind the Music on Rick James so I knew about that one, too. I'm still able to enjoy the Chappelle's show skit and I don't think that makes me insensitive or ignorant. I've never thought of Rick James as charming and he comes across as a fool during the sketch (the parts where he talks about the story). As for the others, I've heard about most of them. The versions I heard were much tamer than were written out, here. I can't know for sure, of course, but would think that the versions of events presented by the victims would be closer to the truth.
I actually would be interested in seeing this movie. I think James Franco is good in the movies I've seen. I also like his brother. Is his name Dave? He was good in the Jump Street movies and Neighbors.

i was watching mtv's beach house summer circa 1993 hosted by jon sencio, pauly shore, kennedy, and jon stewart and eating probably seven lbs of frozen french fries a day. in between games of shining force on the sega genesis.
I'm not the oldest person on the new board anymore! Happy days are here again.
When I was 13 I was obsessed with Kurt Cobain/Nirvana, Green Day, grunge music in general, as well as discovering punk bands via 120 minutes on MTV, and pamphlets that came in Lookout! Records, and Epitaph Records/Fat Wreck releases. This was before the internet was prevalant. I also discovered bands via t-shirts that members of my favorite bands would wear. I would buy albums based on this.

I had my first real girlfriend along with my first real kiss along with playing around in other various ways short of sex.

I was very depressed, socially awkward, and anxious. I was dressing a mix between goth and punk and would do any substance my cousin and my older friends (who I met through my cousin) would put in front of me in order to prove myself.

Most of my time was spent cruising around with friends doing dumb things that would get me in trouble while smoking a lot of weed and drinking.

I also played a lot of bass guitar and would learn songs via tabliture found in various guitar magazines. I did well in school and went to my first concert at 13 (the Smashing Pumpkins).

If I had more positive things to do, I probably could have avoided over a decade of drug abuse. That's one of the reason that I try so hard to get my teenage clients involved with things in the community or with positive people. It's hard to find in a small community but can be done. There are always things available nowadays if you look. I would do some research as to what is available in your area for that age group and push them to experiment with these positive things to see which ones they enjoy. I usually try to have them find a hobby involving music, art, or other creative outlets. Sports also seem to have a very positive effect on the kids I see so I would explore that with them, as well.

I just want to see Better Call Saul. I just read this update which is pretty interesting and could mean the return of quite a few characters from Breaking Bad in cameos.

I also just discovered Hannibal and finally have a new show to watch since Fargo ended.

I have no idea what this song is about but it has the right title. I loved this song growing up and still like it despite not knowing what the fuck the lyrics are supposed to mean.

Good news, everyone!

I was able to find a local clinic that offers both psychiatrists and therapists. I've made an appointment with a psychiatrist because I NEED MEDS NOWWW before I have to commit myself, but I'm also considering therapy.

Blake, you know how behaviorists feel about counseling. I'm very well aware of my own behavior, I realize when I'm being a complete dickhead (and oftentimes act that way anyway), and in general and am just pretty aware of my behavior. The only thing I will say that I do not understand is where my personality ends (I've always been dangerously adventurous, overly analytical, etc.) and where that behavior becomes disordered. Basically, do you think therapy would help? If this doesn't cross ethical boundaries, is there a specific therapy you'd recommend?
I have never met a strict behaviorist so while I learned how behaviorists have been very skeptical of therapists such as myself and the effectiveness of treatment, I learned this in school. I absolutely think that therapy would be good for you and think CBT would be good for you. I believe behaviorists are okay with CBT, too, so maybe it would be appealing to you. I think that talk therapy would be great for you to explore your thoughts and personality and to help make changes as to how you think about things and figure out how you can change your thinking. I'm all for you doing counseling and think that you've been so focused on behaviors and measurable results that you haven't explored your thoughts and thought patterns. Try and be open minded and do some exploration as to who you are and what more you would like to get out of life to feel more comfortable with yourself as well as more confident and less anxious.

Pwoink, everything you said is right on. In all surrounding areas, the vast majority of people on psychotropic meds are required to attend counseling. I have seen many schizophrenics helped immensely by counseling. Of course all other disorders are helped, I just wanted to make that comment on schizophrenia due to your comment.
