for me it was probably about 2001. That was when the rave scene broke down and ecstacy quality went to shit. Now I have to face stupid reality.

yeah 2001 sucked a lot too.
I hope this is one of those gay cycles.. and in a few years everything will kick ass again. Hey, acid came back around.
I doubt it though. For anything interesting to happen, half the population would have to die.

i feel you...

but yeah there's much more to life then all that!
what you're talking about is city life, going out with friends and consuming stuff...
how about creating stuff?
educate yr self so you can creat!
play an instrument
work your body
grow mushrooms and other cool plants
paint/digitally manipulate images
write a song/poem/book

consuming is boring real satisfaction lays in creation
nothing beats a home cooked meal (except a sheffs meal but even that often is less satisfactory)

don't shoot yr self just yet there are other stuff out there that you've failed to realize yet...

Funny, I was just thinking about this exact same topic earlier today.  I'm pretty impressed...you listed all of it.  The main thing I was thinking about with American culture was the radio and the internet.  All the modern music on the radio just seems so...souless...and...manufactured.  It's just a quick musical fix instead of the elaborate journey's I go on when I listen to older musicians like Floyd and Yes.  I don't watch much TV and I've given up on seeing movie's in theatres.  99.9 percent of them suck.  I'd rather watch a movie at home then go out and see one, because at least then I can get high and even if the movie sucks, hey, at least I'll still be high. 

I have no social life either.  Part of the reason is because I'm being reclusive and solitary.  The other half is that there is a trend of meeting people who are either weirded out by me, or I simply have nothing in common with them and its hard to communicate at the same level.  I don't see the point in going to clubs anymore, although I did when I was younger.  Everytime I do go to a club, it's like everyone there is the same.  It's rare that I find someone that I actually click with. 

Fortunately, I'm one of those people who like hanging out in nature.  HOWEVER, I never do it, because I live in the city and Texas-style nature is really brutal during the summer.  I don't think it's fun to get heat stroke just because I want a walk.  (I'm very sensitive to the heat) If I lived somewhere cooler and more serene I'd be out playing in the mud every single freaking day. 

Really, the only thing that makes me truly satisfied nowadays is writing my book.  So I've contented myself with that.  And the knowledge that one day I will be outta Texas.  I'd trade three feet of snow for 100 degree temperatures anyday.  At least you can PLAY in snow! 

Hope you find something to make life more satisfying, Doc!  :heart:

yeah.... I actually have quite a few aquaintances but I secretly hate all of them... and I'm pretty sure the feeling is mutual... You know, you go out to clubs and there are always these tightly knit cliques... but the truth is that most of those people are only hanging out with eachother for fear of being alone and having to face their own thoughts (OOOOooohhh... wouldn't that be scary?)

the truth is that everyone is miserable and people who claim they aren't are just faking so they can judge you and make you feel even worse. bastards.

Haha, man..I understand what you said 100%, and it scares me cause this is some negative shit.

And you really don't sound too bummed out. If someone is really upset, it's not funny. But this thread is gold, lol.

to be expected when you consume consume consume... it doesn't really matter what it is anymore really. The fun is in the things that can't be priced.
Being a consumer is tedious and boring. Work Eat Sleep, Work Eat Sleep, Work Eat Sleep, Work Eat Sleep, Work Eat jerkoff Sleep, Work Eat Jerkoff Jerkoff again Sleep, Work Jerkoff, until ya just say fuckit and shoot yourself but only after one more...

haha, i just reread this and i'm officialy crazy... i'm just gonna leave it alone for a comical... post

the truth is that everyone is miserable and people who claim they aren't are just faking so they can judge you and make you feel even worse.

Come on, what are you, 14? Not everyone is completely miserable. It seems like every single post you make is about how other people are either all completely immoral, or evil, or conspiring against you somehow. Maybe if you weren't constantly judging everyone around you, or being completely paranoid, you'd be able to make some real friends.

Culture's as shitty as it always was. There were probably kids in the 20s going "Man, the speakeasy scene is totally lame now".

If you want better culture, make better culture.

I don?t think it?s not only America or the time we?re living.
Maybe even not the planet we?re living, who knows?
The problem has always been here, seeing maybe more than others.
Find your own way and make things better as much as you can. It may require shooting yourself, but hopefully not.
Your problem is familiar to me, too, but that attitude won?t get you anywhere.

My first post here, greetings from northern Europe and sorry about my bad english.

the perspective of it being shity is always here and there. IMO though, I see that things have always been balanced, only the extremes have grown. We can see where things have gotten real shity all while simultaneously an equally great thing is occuring. I just get angry that sometimes it seems as though someone keeps tipping the scales... chaos ensues (good/bad)... I guess enlightenment is rising above it all and taking it as it comes.

When nearly every post you make includes something about how you don't trust anyone, it's obviously more than some kind of joke.

You used to make posts about how all women were liars.

You've obviously got some serious issues with trust.

Not that you're going to listen to me at all, but you seriously need help. I'd have to say, out of everyone on these boards, you've got the most transparent neurosis, and it's obviously having dire effects on your social life, and your ability to be happy at all.

If I didn't want to read your posts I wouldn't. They're often interesting, sometimes the way they're intended, and sometimes because of the strange psychology. I have no desire to ignore you. If you think my armchair psychoanalysis of you is stupid and way off base, then YOU can ignore ME, obviously you didn't ask for my opinion.

I'm just saying, talking about how you distrust everyone doesn't really come across as a joke, and even if its meant tongue in cheek, there surely must be some kind of reason behind it if you talk about it all the time.

If you're a fraction as paranoid and miserable as you make yourself out to be, you really need help. When people question the validity of your fears or your distrust, you always seem ready to defend them, and not in a joking manner... but when someone says you might really need help, then it's all just a big joke.

I used to think you were really an asshole. Some of your posts about how you felt about women absolutely disgusted me, but now it really seems like you've got genuine psychological problems. You're obviously not a stupid guy, you're probably one of the more intelligent people on these boards, but you're not convincing me that it's all a big joke.

I don't doubt that you're a nice guy in real life, but that doesn't mean that you're not seriously neurotic and paranoid, to the point where your risking becoming untrustworthy.

I don't think that posts about the town conspiring against you, or how you think everyone is greedy and evil make you a bad boy, they make you seem frightened.

Maybe the post where you said that there was some kind of bounty on your virginity, and everyone was scrambling to take your money was a big joke, but you seemed pretty defensive in it.

dude, if you really want to have this conversation with me you should take it to PMs, as you are getting a lot of things wrong and I'd rather not have to answer a bunch of pm's from people who have gotten the wrong impression from your misquotations.

why you feel the need to call me out on this in the middle of a 'friendly discussion' forum is beyond me. seriously, what is YOUR problem, dude? I don't believe I've ever confronted you in this way.

Earlier in this thread you were making condescending remarks about people's advice and suggestions, I'm certianly not the one who strayed from "friendly conversation".

I doubt I got "a lot of things wrong" because I only mentioned one thing that was specific. If you're going to make a thread about how you hate life and culture, and you're going to make condescending remarks when people give you advice ("but keep on thinking you're enlightened there. thats a great attitude. see where that gets you."), then you should be ready to get some criticism about your way of thinking.

If you want to turn it around, and try and portray me as "obsessive" because my replies are longer that a couple sentances and I've actually read other things you've posted, have a ball.

All I've done is stated my opinion. If it really is all an act, then fine, having someone call you out on personality traits that you're trying to portray anyways will only help to develop the character, and since you're not actually miserable and paranoid, then you can sleep fine at night and go on living a happy life.

If it's not an act though, I'm just saying get help. You don't have to be as miserable as you make yourself out to be.

I think it's pretty self explanatory.

I don't blame you for your inquisition of further meaning within such a simple common phrase, you seem like quite the simpleton.

It's okay though, you can cry about your friends going to Starbucks all you want.

If it makes you feel better and all.

no life- the unfortunate circumstance of someone who trolls people's posts on an internet discussion board, in a vain attempt to feel superior.

Sorry.

I'll let you carry on crying about how you're tired of your video games and nothing good being on TV.

I do not disagree with everything on your list, but many things are what you make of them and others are a matter of personal preference. Other people's preferances in sports, music and literature (for example) should really have no bearing on what you like because you can seek out those things which appeal to you. This is MUCH easier at this time than it was even ten years ago.

doc you don't seem to take much intrest in your self and i think that's what really bugging you... american culture as you've put it is shitty but that does not mean you have to be part of the game!
once you start doing stuff of your own (be creative... i'm having a problame with that my self actualy) you'll realize that what ever it is out there makes no diffrance as long as you can find something in here... in your self... by yr self!

if that takes sitting at home for a few months and doing nothing untill you go crazy
if it means not talking to your boring ass friends because they don't challenge you anymore
or if its simply giving up on trying to be happy...
here's what saul williams has to say about that
"The fiery sun of my passions evaporates the love lakes of my soul
clouds my thoughts and rains you into existence as i take flight on
bolts of lighting claiming chaos as my concubine and you as my me i of
the storm you of the sea we of the moon land of the free what have i
done to deserve this? am i happy? happiness is a mediocre sin set for
a middle-class existence
i see through smiles and smell truth in the
distance beyond one dimensional smiles and laughter lies are hereafter
where tears echo laughter you?d have to do math to divide a smile by a
tear times fear equals mere truth. i simply delve in the air and if that?s
the case, all i have to do is breath and all else will follow"

anyway you don't have to be so tuchy about it either... people have alot in common and i'm guessing that alot of us over here went through what you're going through so it's no suprise we feel free to comment on your situation...

the world is what you make of it so stop eating the bullshit (unless it's pinning)
good luck

Annnnnnd I had a light saber and my friend was there and I said "you look like an indian" and he said "you look like satan" and he found a stick and a rock and he named the rock ooga booga and he named the stick Stick and we both thought that was pretty funny. We got eaten alive by mosquitos but didn't notice til the next day. I stepped on some glass while wading in the swamp and cut my foot open, didn't bother me til the next day either....yeah it was a good time, ended the night by buying some liquor for minors and drinking nips and going to he diner and eating chicken fingers, and then I went home and went to bed.---senior doobie

After Thanks Giving when the Natives found we weren't friends.
Listen, we've become a country of nosey, negative, mean fuckers with little in our souls but dollar signs. There is no culture when money and faith are the only objects.

Fight for a large loving government that can take care of its people, kill our criminals, and preform the huge industrial tasks our corporate overlords refuse(wanna greenwash me some more Exon?)

Not this weak travesty that let millions starve and sucks corporate cock while failing at every turn.

Holy shit, I never noticed how old this thread was. So few people make that mistake, he seems new though, at 6 posts. Welcome to the Shroomsomethingorother.

America has a culture?... funny. I thought we borrowed our "culture" from others... Hmmm. I must be misinformed.

To some, fallen trees are ugly. But in reality, it is the circle of life at its finest. This is a beautiful world, its time that we recognize that before its all gone."
