Dear John,

I have come to visit you for the first time in quite a while, and I must say that your board is dreadfully boring.
Now I know you may see this as a compliment, but I assure you that it is not. This was once a source of pride for me - conversations were held on many topics and the superiority of Pepsi-Cola was never in question. It seems that through the years you have all forgotten the statement of this board: Every conversation is uninteresting.
This does not mean that only excessively droll conversation is allowed. You may talk about anything, especially topics that may not be suited for other boards.

Why am I telling you this, John?
I fear the trends over that past year have created a circlejerk in shades of gray; every man stroking unenthusiastically and not a single climax reached. The board approaches an insipid singularity and the userbase stagnates and shrinks.

What do I feel I can do to halt this monotony?
Remove this monochrome veil.
Turn off the elevator's wail.
Take back your own names.
Move from completely uninteresting to mild interest.

The music is from the Tenpenny Tower lobby in Fallout 3.

Dear Johnm,it took me about one minute to remember why I even had this picture. Turns out I posted it as a reply to someone on facebook saying they were "glade" instead of "glad".
It wasn't funny.

I made this picture with the intention of it being funny, but forgot the joke after the first two panels or so.
Then it just didn't really go anywhere.

John Smith 14/07/28(Mon)00:12 No. 43474

I found something about it highly amusing anyway John.

Glad that you did, John

Had forgotten that I actually finished the picture, but find it a tad more uninteresting than the incomplete version.

I like a eggshell or lavender. Perhaps I'd use a nice ocre or something for a bedroom color but probably not.

Do you have a favorite color (, John)?

John Smith 14/07/30(Wed)06:30 No. 43480

I like the rich dark and red/brown dark colours. Mahogany ,rosewood, walnut, wenge.

John Smith 14/07/30(Wed)08:22 No. 43482

I like unsaturated colors, preferably dark, but light ones are nice too. Slate blue and moss green come to mind.

Crimson would come the closest to a favorite. It has a really cool sounding name but is actually quite unremarkable.

How are you all enjoying the start of lawnmowing season?

They're designed to be brightly coloured and to clash with the average garden lawn for that very reason. What I find easy is to work with the chord trailing over my shoulder and my back to the wall, that way I can just flick it out the way if I do start mowing backwards.

John Smith 14/07/29(Tue)10:44 No. 43478

I find it too risky for my taste, but sure would be nice not having to charge the battery

John Smith 14/07/30(Wed)06:33 No. 43481

I have really been enjoying the lawn mowing, unfortunately allergy season is approaching fast. I can't stand rag weed pollen :(

Have you ever taken the time to read the movie credits, John?

Sometimes you can find some real gems in there. I swear half of the names must be made up, or name changes. It's too difficult for me to believe these are birth names.

I know there is a boom operator with the same name as me who's worked on several blockbuster films it's almost humorous that I tried the very same job once but didn't like it.

John Smith 14/07/23(Wed)09:13 No. 43454

i find that many of the people who work on foreign films are immigrants or something. The people that i find working on more western films are also immigrants, but this is worse, because the initial immigrant is more foreign...

i'll go now...

I always watch movie credits. It's a good way to nicely ease out of the film.

What I like to do is watch out for people with nicknames and wonder how they earned them. Sometimes you'll see names like John "patches" Smith, and you just know there's a story behind it.

Sometimes it's just to tell people apart. There'll be Bill "tall" Johnson and Bill "short" Jackson, for example. I like to imagine the crew conversing:
"Hey, have you seen Bill?"
-"which Bill?"
"Tall Bill."
-"Oh that guy, he's at Patches' desk, discussing the lighting for the next scene."

I find it really breathes humanity into the process of making a film.

Are there any things you do specifically to improve your productivity?

John Smith 14/07/26(Sat)21:57 No. 43472

That's a bit vague, OP.

Use better quality or more suitable tools.
Acquire additional training.
Optimize work flow, mostly for processes that take multiple steps.
A little planning at the start can help a lot.
Reduce interruptions or distractions.
Get plenty of sleep and fresh air.

Your gif suits your tale quite well. Keep doing things like that, John Smith.
For years I was certain that finding someone that cared for me again would be impossible to do due to a tainted repuattion in a small town.
When my friends asked me to go with them to a party I met someone. And while we're not really in a relationship, she seems to like me for who I am, despite almost certainly knowing about my past.
It feels good to have some human companionship again every once in a while.
Sorry if that was a bit too personal, I just wanted to let you know it's not unlikely that you'll end up meeting new friends.

John Smith 14/07/25(Fri)14:59 No. 43465

I did as well, John.
Perhaps we live in close proximity to each other?
That would be interesting, indeed.

John Smith 14/07/25(Fri)15:06 No. 43466

Please forgive me for not replying to you sooner, John. I've been a bit busy with my stamp collection.

Might I ask how did things fare with this person you mentioned?

What are you putting off? I'm putting off trying to get in touch with my first crush, who I averted looking at since I first paid attention to her in primary school and calling for a practice interview with the Defence (they're offering me one by phone before the actual interview)...

i need to get to work on my eigenharp

it's been four months now and i still haven't used it. It's an electronic instrument and is very advanced. I hope to perform with it too one day.

John Smith 14/07/25(Fri)03:19 No. 43460

Similar case here John, I need to send a rather apologetic letter to a pen-pal I simply haven't written to in a very long time. If I make it self-depreciating enough, she will most likely forgive me enough to reply.

I also need to apply for more jobs, as volunteering at a nearby bookshop isn't exactly earning me anything.

John Smith 14/07/25(Fri)13:15 No. 43464

if you don't feel a need to reply to this penpal lady, then why bother? maybe you should just move on.

or maybe nothing is happening and that's why you haven't got anything to say to her..just my two cents for ya johnnie.

if you're trying to get a job, why don't you resume bomb all the businesses in your local area? took me three days on that route
