The reports of my arrest are greatly exaggerated.

The same goes for any other reports of death or whatever. Reports of being busy or just general apathy may have a hint of truth to them.

So, yeah, shit's different now. New job, new apartment, new city, and maybe most importantly, new broadband connection. That's pretty much what's occupied the last several days. Moved on Saturday, started work on Monday. Job seems good so far, apartment is fucking bad ass. Then, of course, after moving in, there's all the organization I have to take care of to get this place in order. That was interrupted yesterday by the new broadband hookup.

And since I have broadband once again, you know what that means. Porn: ON.

A so-called friend got me back into newsgroups. Newsgroups were how I got my start in the world of web porn, from back in the days of fourteen-four. That would be circa 1995. This kid and I spent quite a few hours burning up my five free AOL hours every month just digging through It was slow going, so as you can imagine, I always went well beyond the five free hours every month that $20 bought you in those days.

I got back into newsgroups for awhile four years ago or so when we had DSL and I discovered a web site that offered free access to newsgroups. I mostly used those to download ALS scans, which some of you may or may not be familiar with. At some point, though, that web site went pay service, and I haven't fucked around much with newsgroups since then.

Until now, of course. Man, it is fucking insane out there. I'm limited to one crummy gig of newsgroup downloads a month, and after two nights, I'm about halfway there. Which sucks, most definitely, but it's probably for the better. There's no way in hell I could get shit done if I had unlimited access to newsgroups. Just sorting through all of the shit I download and culling the good stuff could be a full-time job in and of itself. Man, if only I could find a way to pull off a gig like that. I would officially be the envy of all men. "What do you do for a living?" "I download porn on the internet, and I have a much bigger house than you do."

I don't know where the ol' 'blog is going to go from here. The past several days I either haven't had time, web access, or the inclination to 'blog. I'm mainly posting now just because I feel like I owe the people who keep showing up here something. For some reason, I'm maintaining decent site traffic despite not having done shit for several days.

Even before the big move, I've been questioning what to do about this 'blog. I never really intended for it to go anywhere, but now it sorta seems like it should at least go somewhere. But no, it's still the same bullshit, complaining about Bush and whatever. I got well past the sodomizing a dead horse point a long time ago, but at some point, I would think, the redundancy is just going to get ridiculous. I'm not sure if we're there yet, but we've gotta be skating pretty close.

Like I said, we'll just have to see. It may be awhile before I fully get back into the swing of things when it comes to 'blogging, mainly just because I really am pretty fucking busy right now, and not just with the whole porn thing. I'm sitting here surrounded by about two dozen boxes packed with stuff, and that's just the upstairs. Downstairs is slowly coming together, but let's face it, that's still a fucking mess, too. Then there's this full-time job, which I actually have to work hard at and pay attention to, mainly because I actually want to.

Oh, and don't read too much into my bullshit here - Fuck Everything isn't going anywhere. I'm never going to stop complaining about, well, everything, and if I'm gonna do that, why not share with a bunch of strangers?

So, thanks to all you FE readers out there. I'll do what I can to maintain the low level of quality you've come to expect from this site.
