Did any of you browse 4chan when you were younger? Like, before 2007, when it was fun and civil, not the twisted abomination it is now.
Those were the good days. We were all alike, because even if you were a fat neckbeard weeaboo, everyone else was a also a fat neckbeard weeaboo, in their hearts. This picture sums it up nicely.

What are some VHS tapes that you remember watching when you were younger. Could be home videos, movies, tv shows, cartoons, anime, shit you found in a dumpster, etc.

Only my grandparents had a VHS player when I was growing up. I remember really looking forward to staying over with them, because it meant watching videos or telly until bedtime. My favourite was probably this one, but I also remember liking the Monsieur Hulot movies and steam railroad documentaries. Not really kids media, but it definitely made a lasting impression on me.

My grandpa died a day after his retirement started when i was like 14, and my grandma a couple years later after a long illness. I helped clear their space out, and held on to the casettes for a while, but i think theyre gone now.

You still can play and enjoy them, I recommend you starting with 'A Link to the Past', pretty comfy and fun game, I think it was my first one.

Being on chans for so long has really desensitized me and made me stoic as fuck. Maybe not so much desensitized as it is just disassociation. General disdain for normalfags (which is probably 99.9% of the population)

have you never had a good relationship or did something go sour?

i'm sorry to hear this, one of the few good things in my life is the relationship i have with my mom. not in a "momma's boy" way I don't think, but almost like a friendship

No.617

We've never had a good relationship. We are just very different people. And I'm just not the sort of person who has good relationships. For example, I never used to tell he stuff like "I love you," or hug, or anything else, because I'm just the sort of person who doesn't like doing that sort of thing, and never have been, ever since I was 5-ish. I am also very stubborn, and have very different views from my mother. I had a very bad temper, growing up, which would get me in trouble in school and at home.
Overall, it's just a recipe for a bad son.

No.664

She was the parent that stuck around. She's a disgusting joke of a human being but she was there, and it really makes me sick that such is enough to make her a thousand times the parent that my "father" was.

My mother loves me, but she's sick in the head and she's done some monstrous things to me, and to my brother.

Dear Livejournal,

For a long time we would go over to my Mother's mother's house for Christmas Eve, have dinner and open a few presents. This was mainly in my earlier childhood up until around the 5th or 6th grade.

After that we had Christmas Eve dinner at our own house. We would always get up to open presents at around 4 am and eat Hillshire sausage, crackers and cheese until around 8 then we would get ready to go to my dad's parents house and have Christmas lunch/dinner.

We did the latter until my grandfather died then we tried one more year but my grandmother couldn't do it anymore after that. The subsequent years we would have smaller get togethers at her house but she gradually lost her memory and now she's in a nursing home.

While I was in school we would always do "special" things too once the holiday started. One year we went to a Christmas light show, then another particularly memorable year we went to a planetarium and they had something about Christmas and Jesus. It was actually really good though.

We would almost always eat at the Outback after whatever we did.

Once my grandfather died my dad lost a lot of drive to do anything and ever since then my Christmases have been a depressing, horrible mess. This year was no doubt the worst.

I was very lucky to have a functional and good childhood. My family has gone to shit now and have been that way for a 5-6 years. We had to foreclose the house I grew up on and now we rent a little shithole in the sticks with no central heating. Parents don't work, sister lives here with her kids, barely a pot to piss in and I just know they aren't going to have the great Christmases I did.

That makes me sad. We'll never have as much money as we did growing up and their dad is a worthless shithead alcoholic who won't child support.

Nostalgic Crush Thread
This thread is for any nostalgic crushes that you had. What are they from? Why did you like them? (If they're real did they age well? lol) Animated and real allowed.
Try not to judge anyone. This is a friendly thread :D

I'm starting off with an obvious one for me. Mitchell Tratchenberg from Harriet the Spy. She was also in The Adventures of Pete and Pete she's been in a lot of other stuff too. I remember watching Harriet the Spy a lot on my VCR. I can quote the hell out that movie. Harriet was a really cool character and I've always loved writing and ninja stuff and spy stuff so I connected with her character a ton.

So what about you guys?

That's pretty cute. I don't think I've ever had a fictional crush before: the closest I got was when I watched Neon Genesis Evangelion a year or so ago: Kaworu is a good character.
Then again, I had a crush on a real person I knew online all the way back in early high school.
