    I don’t mean this in a gatekeep-y way even though I know it probably sounds like it but it’s crazy to see how many people listened to him now. Just cause I remember being in hs and it seemed like only me and a couple other people knew about that whole side of hip hop or whatever. back then I could only talk about music like that online cause no one I knew in real life listened to it. But I think a lot more people just found stuff as they got older which is cool it just surprised me.

    I never really get sentimental when ppl I don’t know die but I really do have memories with a lot of his songs... like when I was younger and learning to make beats I used to look up what doom sampled and then try to chop it up and recreate it to figure out how it worked. I showed his music to a bunch of old friends over the years too and they always had funny reactions to it. I think I’ve had the beat for “vomitspit” stuck in my head for like 12 years.

    Come to think of it getting into doom/madlib/dilla when I did made me appreciate music in general a lot more because they could find samples in anything.

    Ya, I kept most of my music taste a secret to my irl peers. in MS/HS people just thought I was weird for not listening to shit like Disturbed and 5FDP. I owe SBC and other online outlets for keeping me sane back then. Nowadays I don't live in a town of 3,000 people and have plenty of people to share my music tastes with.

    I also remember that Mullensucks dude ranting hard about how much MF Doom sucks. That dude was so bitter and miserable lol, wonder what he's up to these days.

    I look back at lots of my old posts. And see how much of a conceited asshole I was. Not that I'm not now. But I can't believe I was here calling people fags and belittling people and bragging about really superficial shit. I can feel the arrogance permeating from all my posts. And the things I would say that I expected others to think was funny... wasn't really funny at all.

    Yet still people responded, whether with indifference, meanness, or going along with it trying to make my input to this community be heard. Even when I would taunt people and put them down in order to draw attention to myself just to assuage my poor sense of self worth, people would listen and they would react. Incredibly, often with such love and support. People would even ask after me if i wasn't around for some time, or bring me up in such positive light in conversations i wasn't directly involved with.

    But these days, I have never felt so insignificant. Feeling as if no matter what i say, no one would really listen. No matter how much i dump my heart into things, I would never have my being so much as noticed, let alone acknowledged. Online, I feel like i'm competing with such masters of attention grabbing and the powerful algorithms that support them, pushing me off into some dusty long forgotten server-space. And irl, i am just a ghost that floats through the shells of people whose mind have been uploaded somewhere and no longer respond to outside stimuli.


    I kind of always knew how much of an asshole I was here, and how immature. There was always a voice in the back of my head saying "come on, what are you doing man, grow up". And since my last posts several years ago have made a big effort to be more humble and supportive to others. And I've really made a lot progress. But I wonder at what cost. For too long I set aside my efforts to be noticed and feel belonging in order use that energy on supporting others. And recently, I've been finding it hard to really give a shit about them any longer. And I'm wondering, maybe I was feeling more love for a stranger here on these forums when i was calling him a stupid faggot than I have been to my best friends as of late. With the online person I was playing a game of dominance and attention seeking, but at least i was willing to sit down and play that game with them. To have them be a part of my struggle and of my life. To value and notice them, even if not for the most pure reasons. It may be better than having friends where I am constantly holding back, because i am checking my energy levels, determining how much I can give them without running myself dry. Because I am not taking and fighting for what i need to keep my energy and lust for life up. Humility to point of negligence.


    If i could do this life over, to go through the teenage years, as I did on this forum, I certainly wouldn't be so mean. But I would play these games again. They are so necessary to develop a community. To have this give and take relationship. and some kind of struggle that you grow together from. And i feel these days, the extremes of the game have been so amplified that an individual is either taking everything or giving it all. There will never be a level playing field, but now it seems that some people aren't even allowed to step on. Sidelined, completely powerless. Living off the bones others cast aside, rotting away in their starvation.


    In any case, for any relevant person reading this. I'm sorry if I was ever a cunt to you. I know it hurts. Especially back in the early 2000s when people on forums like this were generally folks who couldn't fit in irl. It scathes especially bad for us. But thanks for being a part of me growing up. For allowing me to feel a part of a community as I was learning to love. And having made together something to look back to when I need to relearn some things about it.

    you don't have to say sorry. i feel like that was part of being a teenager, particularly in the skateboarding community, and especially online where it was all concentrated. in skateboarding you had to grow a thick skinpost-forum era, and in the twitter hate era, there are way bigger assholes

    this is typical kid behavior. I can't stand most of the high school kids at the skatepark because of this.

    Thankfully the number of times I've been to the skate park in recent times, no one's been there, or only a handful of scooter kids and they tend to clear off. If there are skaters, they're usually at least in their 20s and more chill. Skating seems to be a dying art here, at least among younger people. They're either on scooters, or indoors on twitch or whatever.

    I remember 10-12-13 years ago, whatever, there were kids on the sides just heckling everyone. Fights would break out, it was mayhem lol

    I haven’t skated at all in several years I just stuck around this site for the homies but even when I did skate a lot when I was like 13-16 there was only like 3 or 4 kids at my school who skated and then a few other groups of 3 or 4 from different schools that would be at the skatepark but it was never really busy. There was never more than like 10-15 people there and half of them were usually just chilling and smoking lol.

    I haven't been to skateparks on the regular but all the old street spots I used to hit have basically been redone with new buildings etc, the school up the road was completely redone and it looks like some fucking ugly grey rehab center.

    I remember moving here 15 years ago and I was kicked off the school property 5 times in a day by the cops, there were like 5 other people there so we just kind of lurked around until the guy was sick of our shit.

    I remember one weekend at the skatepark, it started raining so me, my friend and this other group a couple grades above me headed to this school to skate. couple of little ledges and gaps. it was a weird group, then at school the following day the older kids acted like nothing happened and that they weren't skating with us younger folk lol

    i'm not entirely sure this was doom, but i believe there were some skits involving him going to the record store and asking for old blue note records. i remember he goes "any reggae?" and the store clerk goes "no, no reggae" lol.

    also speaking of which i'm pretty sure i saw one of the doom fakes in 2007.
