My favorite breakfast place is closing permanently next month. Very disappointing. The current owners just took it over about 2 years ago. They seemed to be doing well. Always a little busy in there...
I have my own office! They moved retiring old man out to a different area!
Read that script again with less tired eyes.
That all gonna need a helluva lot of editing before it's fit for public consumption.
I figured out what I wanted to do last night.
I wrote a 6 page movie script based on my interpretation of the story told in the song Hotel California.
If you could imagine, it is a story about a vampire society.
"You can check out any time you like, but you can never leave."
I feel like I have deprived myself of artistic creativity lately.
What should I endeavor to create? I need some inspiration.
Mind you my main mediums are photography, film and writing.
You could write an erotic story.
You can write precisaly about your lack of creativity, about the empty sensation, about the lack of sense related with this stupid world... just about you and your present feelings.
I'd love to see some photography!
I could write about both... how my lack of creativity leads to me wanting to write myself into an erotic story....
CuRsEd - i don't update my portfolio here for maybe not so obvious reasons. What other platforms would you be comfortable connecting to in order to view said photography?
I'm good to enjoy anything you write, film, or shoot. :)
Awww, thanks VW. Have you ever seen the short films I've made?
I'll message you. :)
For those of you looking at these questions and don't want to answer in a public view, you can do so by private message.
Whom among you are into erotic stories?
That was something I just never found myself being interested in. I have friends who very much dig it though.
I've never really enjoyed reading my porn either.
But I do have a fondness for writing them.
I posted some of my erotic stories in my society forums. Do you happen to have any means to access my society?
Ok, let's say you don't have a partner to explore your kinks with. Do you still explore your kinks?
Nope. My kinks all involve my partner.
Very cool question. Classically, shibari and kinbaku require a partner to receive feedback from. Whether too tight or loose and the like. How the rope texture is preferred to others.
I suppose normally this kink would be practiced better with another. But I still practice knots and ties. Arm restrains and bracelets, some cuffs. I suppose in this manner one could still practice without a partner.
Absolutely. Rope work is as much an art form as it is a kink. A painter doesn't only paint if he/she has a model to pose.
What kinds of naughty, kinky things?
Deeply erotic poetry
But you didn't list that.
Would deeply erotic poetry not also be an erotic story?
It can't just be a collection of words can it?
The Vibrator Hums
Penatrates and rubs the spot
Oh see, now my kinks are not things like this... it's stuff in the privacy of my bedroom.
So then your kinks are just unmentionable?
Well, maybe I am just reserved... but with as many pervy weirdo's I get on here that send me inappropriate messages..... Yeh.... I wouldn't mention that sort of thing in a public message. lol. Vagueness is better for me.
I completely understand.
But I feel like this would be a safe space for such a conversation. Honestly, who even reads my journal?
Well, you get replies so someone does! lol!
Nawww.... it's like, just you and maybe one other person.
I have been seeing on tiktok a lot of the Boudoir Session. I did not know that was a thing. lol Well, not paid thing at least.
What do you mean? Like, you didn't think people hired photographers to shoot boudoir?
Do you like naughty, kinky things?
Remember when Elf said, "You're not Santa! You smell like beef and cheese!"
If you want to know what that smells like, I invite you come sit with the guy I have to share an office with.
But ... but it's cheese! :)
Cheeses is our savior.
But this is not a good smell, trust me.
Gross. No smell at all is perfect for sharing an office.
I agree. Some days he's pretty awful. Some days he just smells like BO. Musty and oniony.... ugh. I can't wait for him to retire.
I found out today that a person I have been friends with for 30 years passed away in her sleep Monday night.
Younger than me. Three kids, all about the same ages as my three kids. Just poof. Gone. No warning. At least none that she ever let on outside of her most personal circles.
I just did graduation photos for her daughter, and family portraits for her family a couple summers ago.
She was a wonderful mom. Wonderful person. When we were younger, she was the pot stirrer. Always looking for trouble. The one I couldn't get to quit smoking no matter what I tried.
We worked together when we were young. I had my own place (lived with just my widowed grandmother) but I had to be the everything for that household, while balancing full time school, and full time employment. Every Memorial Day I hosted a picnic/party for my friends and co-workers. Had a sand volleyball court with lights - we'd make a bonfire and play until the neighbors called the cops. Dinner, desserts, drinking games, music and friends all being friends.
One year I wasn't planning a party because I had tickets to see a Metallica show about a 60 mile drive away. My friend (who I mentioned above) said I had to have a party. She would host it as long as the party was at my place. I pondered that. I told her, "You have to take care of my grandmother. If she gets angry about anything... hell to pay." My friend agreed.
The day of I got the grill going and had the food prepared. She showed up with the drinks, and a few friends, and I left for the show. By all accounts, it was a party just as I would have had it. I got home close to 1AM, and there were about 10 people left, sitting around the bonfire, listening to music and just hanging out. My friend put together dinner for my grandmother. Everything was cleaned. Leftovers in the fridge. I had no need to worry.
That's the kind of person she always was.
Today is a sad day.
Sorry for your loss. She sounded like a wonderful person.
She was a good person.
A couple folks said they want to hear the story, so here it goes:
Way back then, I felt like I didn't have very much communication in my life that wasn't business oriented. I ran my own business. Most of my time each day was tied up with making business happen. I had a spouse who didn't talk to me unless she wanted me to do something, or had a complaint, so I was looking for social interaction that could be had a bit passively while running my business.
I found these forums. I forget what the name of them was, but the parent website was broken into dozens upon dozens of forums that you could join. The forums all had their own topics, and individual members could petition the site to open their own forum. Most of them were pretty immature. A few were interesting and I found interesting people in them, but over time I grew to realize that the majority of members were trolls, and shit stirrers. and most of the forums were just places where lonely people went to vent their life problems. The forums had chat areas, which were almost unbearable woe-is-me pissing contests daily.
So someone that I met made the suggestion that I try out this new'ish place, Vampire Rave.
My reaction was... "Vampires? WTF? Are you serious?"
But I scoped it out. Honestly, there was still a pretty good level of woe-is-me pissing contests here, and as you probably know, a number of trolls... but not nearly as bad. I did meet some pretty outstanding people here. A couple right away, and they seemed surprised that I honestly didn't have any ulterior motives beyond just getting to know people, and trying to have intelligent discourse.
And that is what kept me here. The people I met. A small circle of people, that made this interesting. A short time after joining, with my business, I landed a contract that got me doing work all over the United States, so I was able to meet many of those people face to face, and truly get to know them as people, not just members of this site.
And often met them in such unusual ways.
"Hey, just got kicked off my flight and I'm stuck in a city nearby you. Want to grab dinner?"
Shit like that.
Amazing how many people agree. I could have been a crazy serial killer. Or actually a VAMPIRE! And they would just be like, "Shit yeah, let's hang!"
Life is weird, man.
But 17 years later and this account, however infrequently signed into, is still here.
Love it! I too have met many interesting people in my time here and have had the privileged in my travels to meet a few in person as well! There were a few who made plans to meet and then bailed but oh well.
I feel special at being one of those meet up's. :)
You were! Morri and I enjoyed that trip out to meet you!
There was someone else there, too, if I recall....
@CuRsEd - yeah, same. I had some cancel plans on me at the last minute. I was lucky enough to get to attend a VR gathering in New Orleans one summer. Got to meet many, many people.
Well, if we are ever in one another's area, we will have to add to our growing lists!
I'll keep it in mind. I don't really travel these days like I used to. No travel in my job, and my schedule rarely has the flexibility. It's a shame, I used to really enjoy it.
I travel often.... certain areas more than others but you never know what the future holds. :)
No, that is for sure.
Well, if y'all are ever in the south let me know. Have car, will travel. :-)
I shall. I haven't been in the south in probably 10 years at this point. I think my last trip down there was South Carolina in 2013.
If you ever in KY you call me, meet up. Nightgame and Elemental both live here too, who you meet if I remember.
I do. I couldn't remember who else was there on that trip, but I do remember some of your other local friends were there.
So this May will be 17 years since I joined this site?
Who wants me to tell the story of how I ended up here?
17 years WOW Thats cool.
wow 17 years is a long time
Wow, 17 years is indeed a long time, and it's fascinating to hear that you've been a member of this site for so long! I'm absolutely interested in hearing your story of how you ended up here. I'm sure it's filled with exciting twists and turns that have led you to where you are today.
It's incredible to think about how much can happen in 17 years, and how technology has advanced and evolved over time, especially with regards to online communities and communication. It's remarkable how this website has stood the test of time and continues to bring people together from all around the world.
Thank you for sharing your experience. I'm looking forward to learning more about your journey and how this website has impacted your life over the past 17 years.
Bravo, Not too many with those age batties. lol. I definitely am game on reading about your finding this place.
I love it here, despite the mess. I've met a great bunch of people, lessons and lifers just the same. So this site is very dear to me. The people are... almost all gone but I'm not nor are the memories. I keep holding out hope that certain things would be as they were, till that day comes, I'll keep my profile around a tad.
Congratulations! I received my 17 year batty in Dec of last year. When I realized it had been that long I too had the holy fuck realization. I would love to read the story of your coming to VR.
Maybe I should go look at my society.
I haven't done that, I don't think, since maybe September...
That might be a thing to do occasionally! lol!
Yeah, as I suspected though, nothing was happening there.
But, I mean, what do you expect from the coven of lost souls (aka - inactive accounts)?
Yeeeeh, I would imagine it is fairly peaceful and easy to care for. lol.
I can say for sure, there is NO drama.
Except when someone returns from the dead, and demands to be traded to the society they used to be in, and makes a stink about it because, like the purpose of my coven, I am rarely here to grand such demands expediently..
I'll take over where Lord Mogy left off.
So... who likes to be spanked?
Whoa, gettin personal here! LMAO! I am surprised no one answered the question!
Me too. I figured there'd be a lot of people here who enjoy a good spanking.
I prefer to be the spanker rather than the spankee. LOL.
Hmmm... as do I. Although I will switch roles for the right partner, that is a rarity.
What? Lord Mogy left?
What the fuck, dude?
Remember when I used to host cooking shows on the webcam feature here?
Wow... that was.... over a decade ago....
Yeah, I'm still a really good cook. So, there's that.
lol Never change, my friend.
I wish I had seen that!
Ah, VW.. time changes us all in subtle, and not so subtle ways.
For example, time has made me fatter. Or... maybe that was from eating all the good cooking....
I watched a few of those. Another site feature I miss.
Well, the Webcam feature is still available. Who uses it?
I'm not sure it works. But if you're considering more cooking adventures, I'm certainly interested.
The Webcam feature currently does not work From what Cancer told me a Google update broke the webcam coding
Oh boy. That's a shame.
But no, I wouldn't be doing any cooking shows these days. My days of fun and frivolity on this site are long in the past.
