...and where else can I go when I want half of the threads to turn into two-person, never-ending discussions about Julian Assange?

Here's a good place for that:

I used to spend a lot of time refinishing old strats years ago when I had a garage.

Actually a great forum for stuff like that, some of the people there do some really awesome work, builds from scratch, including acoustic guitars, pretty cool actually.

The one thing I wont miss is the interminable discussion of US politics ALL the time. Yay!

Now all we need to do is get rid of Boris and they might let the lounge sneak back in under the guise of something like "cool new recipes to try whilst you are waiting for your plugins to scan"....

Hehe, I thought for sure this thread was toast when that giant picture of orange man showed up, but somehow it's still here. I guess upper level management isn't reading this.

D minor is far from the saddest key. Try listening to D# minor, F minor or Ab minor and then reassess.

If Trump were a key, he'd be Bb minor played on a child's plastic recorder, badly.

Really??!! The loss of this kind of post has gotten everyone's knickers in a twist? That explains the D minor vs D# minor lament.

Man, I should not post in the General Discussion Forum, this is where all the nice people, with music hang out. So this will be my final comment, until, and if the "Lounge" is reinstated. Which I doubt at this stage.


I say goodbye to the few free thinkers, anti globalists, proud individuals, non-self hating, not Champagne Communists, woke identity fans, victim hierarchies, begrudgingly GOP voters, anti Brexit, Liberals, Lefties, Pro Feminist critics, Pro Brexit, Fascists, Virtuous/"Nice", Orange man bad, Orange man good crowd that existed in the Lounge are no more.

The obscure and minute corner of the internet, password protected, is no more and who can blame them. One day "somethingaweful" post a link to your site accusing you of harbouring Trump supporters. Followed by massive progressive social media outrage with inevitable accusations of racism, and god forbid Cloudfare involvement.

Loungers, this is not your fault, this is the ever decreasing platform of free thought that is very rare, almost non existent on main stream media.

I enjoyed my time in the Lounge and I thank Justin and the many mods who had to put up with us. I have no resentment, I am saddened for those few who have no other platform. I can point you in some free speech alternatives but who have the stomach for that these days.

Ciao, make beautiful music, make Reaper more awesome.

OK, dude. I'm wondering whether you even have the credentials to make such a departing speech. Go get tucked in at the same time as woogish (and dream of F minor fantasies). Ahhhh, what the heck. I'm just messin' with you all. Love Reaper.

The lounge, while a mixed blessing, obviously meant something to some of the people here. I don't see what good being dickish about it does for anyone.

Should our paths not cross again, Ben, blade, Crimson, fran, suleiman, Susan, and of course Visco and Xite and the rest of you wherever you are, my best regards and wishes, you're collectively and variously a bunch of weird interesting smart funny annoying misguided talented warm hostile mates and dickheads, like most people, but more so. Nice to have met yas.

I like the way that certain "unlikely to offend Church Lady & her cohorts threads have been cut `n pasted into the General Disgustion section of the forum!

Who remembers superblonde.org from the lounge??

Damn I really miss him. My favorite was his rant about climate change being a conspiracy because Al Gore likes seeing women in bikinis.

Still cracks me up.

Brilliant guy. One of a kind. A mind of his own, to say the least. If not for the lounge we would never have encountered him. That goes for other people too. Free spirits. I miss them, even those I didn't particularly like.

I haven't been posting here in a while, so I'm just noticing the disappearance of the lounge. Last few times I popped in just to take a look at what might be going on there, it seemed to have lost it's liveliness of opposing viewpoints. I guess nothing lasts forever. But damn if I didn't learn alot in there over the years through discussion and arguing (of both kinds), even if half of the time spent there (or more) was equally wasted. So I guess I'm torn on it's disappearance. I very much appreciate that Justin and Co. allowed for it to exist over the years nearly without intervention. Discussions there had a big impact on shaping my views on this and that. So I guess on the flipside, it's sad to think that won't be the case for someone else. But at the same time, thanks for the tolerance, where things definitely did get wild at times.

But it does seem that politics threads have become lopsided in the lounge. Did Bevosss go on hiatus or something? I'll definitely miss his insights on political topics. Bevosss is the boss. There was no one in the lounge worthy.
