Default Hi everyone.

I'm sitting here listening to M83's "Outro," and for some weird reason it gave me the sudden urge to come back here. The song inspires wonder...hope...awe, the same feelings Avatar inspired. (In fact, anyone good with fan videos should make an Avatar fan video to Outro, it would work so well).

Anyway, I don't have much to say at the moment other than...I'm sorry. I'm sorry I haven't been on lately. Uni has been keeping me busy, plus I've been going through some personal problems (a lot like PAD just brought on under different circumstances, and in this case much more focused on romance and finding a soulmate, rather than a general existential crisis). Anyway, all the stuff I've been going through has got me feeling the need to watch Avatar again. To see if maybe it could give me some guidance over what I am feeling at the moment. Hopefully I can do that this weekend. It will be the first time in a year and a half.

Anyway, that's about it. Hi again, everyone.

PS: Anyone else really excited for Cloud Atlas? I've read the book, and judging by the extended trailer, I feel it might strike me in much the same way Avatar did.

The Dreamer's Manifesto

Mike Malloy, a voice of reason in a world gone mad.

"You mustn't be afraid to dream a little bigger, darling." - Inception

"Man, I see in fight club the strongest and smartest men who've ever lived. I see all this potential, and I see squandering. God damn it, an entire generation pumping gas, waiting tables; slaves with white collars. Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy **** we don't need. We're the middle children of history, man. No purpose or place. We have no Great War. No Great Depression. Our Great War's a spiritual war... our Great Depression is our lives. We've all been raised on television to believe that one day we'd all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars. But we won't. And we're slowly learning that fact. And we're very, very pissed off." - Tyler Durden

I'm reading Cloud Atlas right now and trying to finish it before I see the movie! Great book so far!

Stuff happens, and it seems somewhat normal for people to drift in and out of here these days. But it's good to see you're still around.

Hey there Tsyal, it's great to see you again.
It's interesting that a piece of music can bring back similar feelings of Avatar.
Let us know how your rewatching of Avatar goes!

Welcome back - I'll try to avoid the politics

Good luck on finding someone... I know how that feels. Hope things go better soon on the personal side.
