I wrote a letter to an old friend. Haven't takled to him in at least two years. He lives less than a mile away. It was very general and unassuming, He has yet to answer. A mutual friend saw him a few…Continue
My suggestion would be "Call of Cthulhu" or just grab one of his short story collections. I don't know if you are on Facebook or not but there is a H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society Page and that question comes up quite…"
Man, that;s a bummer. I wish I had some advice for you, All I can really say cliched and trite, It sounds like you have done quite a bit for him already, which is awesome. I don't think there is anything you can do to get rid of…"
"I am a big fan, personally. Really dig Los Straightjackets and listen to a podcast of Underground Surf music. I think it's highly underrated as a genre. I am also digging it because it's easy to play. Only drawback; most of it's in…"
It would take an Act Of Congress to get him on the phone, email or any other modern means.
At one time (years ago) we were pretty close for over ten years, then... I don't know what happened.
It's difficult to know what went down then,…"
"Had a similar situation a few years ago.
Most of us are different men today than we were years ago. As we mature, we hope that our friends do, too, but not all do. The ones that don't are best left in memories and the occasional beer. I have…"
"I'm not sure you've given enough information for an answer.
My first thought is ... you wrote a letter? To a guy? And mailed it a mile? Why not just call the dude and see if he wants to get some chicken wings or…"
I wrote a letter to an old friend. Haven't takled to him in at least two years. He lives less than a mile away. It was very general and unassuming, He has yet to answer. A mutual friend saw him a few months ago and it was all monosyllabic answers. It seems we have changed and he hasn't. I guess the question is do I just say the Hell with it and call it a day or what should I do? Thanks in advance.See More
"RD, I beg to differ. People listen to music, just not like they have in the past. At least it seems that way to me, I just joined the other day and am in the process of getting the hang of it, fear not you shall hear from me!"
Music, Homebrewing, Playing the guitar, Gardening, Reading
Wife is a Librarian. The list is LONG.
Action mostly, some comedy. On a retro kick right now. Wife has a DVD burner so I'm surfing all the movie channels and adding to my collection.
If it's round I'll spin it, simple as that. I have some of everything in my collection. Love talking about it, listening to it and playing it. It really is the glue of the universe and with out it life would be meaningless.

"Yeah let's not pretend like it's entirely altruistic. It's a transaction wherein there is a mutual exchange of cost and benefits. And we all know that it's easy come / easy go. If / when it's no longer beneficial to the US,…"
"People often refer to Krav Maga like it's this super micraculous unbeatable system that will make you invicible.
The reality is that Krav Maga can be good but it all depends on the quality of the instructor and his training methods. IMO most…"
"I'm 5'5" about 140 lbs. soaking wet. Because I live in Taiwan, there's not a soul I fear, as I'm about average size here. But I remember working in a gym as a personal trainer (working mainly on clients looking…"
""Rebekah I think most self-defense classes for women-and men-, but for women in particular are worthless because they are not nearly violent enough."
It's true. IMO, a self-defense program isn't super useful if it doesn't…"
"Watch the free stuff. You'll see if you like it. Even watching the The Ultimate Fighter reality show (which has thankfully gotten much more tasteful over the past few seasons) is pretty itneresting to see how they train and prepare for fights.…"
""What channel is the UFC on?"
Depends. Pay-per-views are online or through your TV provider, free fights are online and on Fox.
I usually just watch highlights or *cough*streams*cough* after the fact because I can't bring…"
"If you're still in good shape, why not go to an MMA gym and try it out? If you can box and you can wrestle then a little bit of light sparring could be fun! You'd probably take the young guys by surprise!
