MEGA STRANGER DANGER ❤️
The only stranger I am is to myself. And maybe bad drivers.
HOW ARE U
Hereeee but not here!
How are youuuu?
Nice to meet you, I'm Xenovent! When I first joined ZU a lot of people were wondering if and/or confusing me for you, so it's nice to meet the man behind the legend!
I'll try not to act like you so that people won't mistake me for you! lol
which one is which?!
It's me, the ZUer who wore green HAL2000 avatar back when you were active because I was in Farore back then.
lol, I forgot when was the year you changed avatar to the rotating 3½" floppy disc.
I do remember!
Hmm, I'm guessing it was maybe a few months before I took my hiatus. It was a challenging decision; I had that other avatar forever! Wonder if I still have it...
Wonder if it's okay for me to go back to the green HAL avatar?
I feel like I had to go back for now so people can recognize me lol
I recognized a couple people already based on their avatars and signatures!
Yeah. I better go back to the green HAL avatar, then.
We called it AL9000 because of my actual name, if you remember.
Haha I remember it vividly.
Hey man it’s cool to see you pop in again. I may have gone by Koulatio around when you left. Haha.
Sounds like you’ve had a busy couple years by that response to Cody. Haha.
I remember when you changed your name to Ty.
Lemme tell you, these past 3 years have been quite a wild ride. There's a lot of learned lessons and experiences. Some good, some bad. But most of it consisted of tons of beef jerky lol
Cool cool. You never know who’s going to remember what. Haha.
I’ve never had beef jerky so you’re one step ahead of me. Haha.
Good sir, you must rectify this immediately!
Unless you're vegetarian or something, which is fine if that's your thing. But if not...
It's the perfect meat snack!
Hey man I'm glad to see you pop in
Poppin' in, looking around, trying to hold my bearings a little. It's good to see some familiar names! Not that new people aren't nice to talk to. But eh, not quite the same as bumpin' into Viajero.
Oh I'm solsetur by the way
Sols! Have you been consistently around? It's good you told me your name, because I would have been like 'who dis?' lol
Yeah I have! I actually mod Din now~ my name is actually just solsetur inverted because of Lysis haha.
How have you been man?
I would have never noticed that lol
Din! How's Din holding up? In capable hands I see. Good!
Me? It's good, good good good. Bumpy ride, but it has put hair on my chest and made me more j̶a̶d̶e̶d̶ wiser lol. You?
Din is doing alright. We had a rough patch for a while a few years back but it's been pretty solid since then! You should pop in some time~
Your bicep still strong and infallible? I've been doing pretty good. Since you left I've graduated high school and start college-- currently a stressed out nursing major too deep to switch it up, haha.
Long time, been a while, eh? Welcome back!
Too long! 3 years apparently. It's good to be back. Still has that ZU aroma.
Indeed. Good to have you back!
I know lots of people are probably going to ask you this; So give me the short version of, How have you been since then?
I've somehow managed to NOT stay out of trouble, as trouble had a way of finding me. Things have stabilized since that period. No more riding motorcycles for now, cut some people out in my life, got this cool new job. Life is going steady right now.
How about yourself?
I had a job, but boss accused me of quitting, when those words never came out of my mouth; But ended up walking out in the end.(I don't do business with that place anymore. I'm still salty af about it.) I've been jobless since then, and I'm living with my parents for now. Not whole lot has changed with me. But my brother got married, and he and his wife are expecting a baby anytime next month. Also, me and my brother have been getting along better than before he got married. So that's a plus.
As far as ZU goes, I left before ZU was shut down. And I came back the day ZU came back from the dead. I also became mod over Newbie Board for like a year. But modding that particular board, drained me; as I like to keep things interesting and fresh. Forum Games is where it's at for me. But I'll have to wait to see if that happens. I'm still on Slack though. Fun times on ZU! And I'd say much more fun than back then, when I was trolling the forums. haha Glad those days are over! *cringes*
So what have you been doing for the last three years?
Has it been 3 years? Good lord where does the time go. Would you believe me if I told you I was trying to find my password? No... that's a terrible excuse lol Well for almost a year I didn't even have my computer hooked up because I was getting tired of being connected all the time. Which is ironic, because I work with computers for a living!
Ohhhh the ridiculous stories I have to share.. I bought a motorcycle and then someone crashed into me, traveled to a country and was stuck there for weeks, moved 3 times, changed jobs 3 times (mostly just promotions), almost went to prison for being wrongfully accused of something, all the while trying to save the City of Townsville before bedtime. And that's just last month! (kidding) But yeah that's just some of it.
How's the Davies life treatin' ya?
I’m doing well, I haven’t crashed a motorcycle or almost been taken to prison lately
Ahhh the American dream. To strive and hope for bad things NOT to happen lol
With Australians that dream is just natural. Now I know why we are mocked ; _ ; lol
Where do I sign up? I'll just attend PAX AUS and stay forever
Whatever happened to HAL-9000?
hey Xeno how have you been?
Who knows what mysteries it contains!
Still got that awesome spinning floppy-disc. lol Nice.
And what kind of music does that radio station play?
Oh hush your bum, things will work out
So your a huge Progressive House fan then that hasn't listen to it in a while?
I hope so.
You listen to the whole thing yet? Glad you liked it.
I found a Progressive House compilation by them. Here's it is:
I've never been good at that, and some classes don't work that way.
And that's one epic sig you've obtained by the way.
Well, since you seem to be new to it, you'll have to try various versions of the style.There's this one great 1 hour long compilation by this one youtuber. They have two channels. One is for single songs, and the other is for compilations. They work with a variety of genres, even Progressive House.
Give two samples to listen to, in your spare time. First one Drum and Bass. The second Progressive House(if I can find it again).
This is my favorite Drum and Bass compilation from this youtuber(Hope you enjoy):
Alright. I'm stressed and tired from school though.
Your sig is absolutely glorious.
You always have awesome signatures.
Left hand, middle. lol
And same here.
I now have the cast and bandages off of the finger. I can type normal again! Yay!
It's actually healing surprisingly fast now. Like over night last night it feels and looks like it mended together about almost 1 centimeter or something, but no more than that. I'm like, wow. I must be super human or something, right? lol
Do you like Drum and Bass?
Ah, geez, that's really unfortunate. I remember my family was in a similar situation many years ago when I was just a kid, before my mom had secured a job as a secretary at the high school (it was always funny having mom as my secretary lol) and we ended up having to move a lot because we never had a constant flow of income or anything. Hell, we lived in a camper for like, 8 months one year v.v
All I'm saying is I can understand how tough it can be, and I send my regards and best wishes to your family. I really hope they can pull through it and if they do end up having to move, they find a place that's safe and well for them. *huggles*
Yes it was somewhat bad. But it's probley not as bad as you're thinking. When I say soft cast, I mean something home made with first aid bandages, so that it doesn't move and split back open. I took off the cast yesterday to see how it was doing, it seemed to be mending fine to me. But for safe measures I'll wear it a week longer.
I'm actually surprised at how well I've learned to type on the keyboard with out that finger. And I'm glad I tried too. I would have been bored, if I didn't. lol
