Hello, all! Long time...

Hi, all! It's really been a while. Been curious to see how things are here. Does it still get as heated and interesting as I remember?
I see a lot of old faces so I'm guessing nothing has changed much, which is great.

Cheers! :grin:

It’s shifted somewhat, the dialogue. No chew toys anymore and Facebook stole the internet.. but it’s still warm. Been up to much?

Been doing animations and puppet films with the wife (she's an indie director). Lots of work!
So the heat is down these days? No biggie. I'm sure the site is as informative as ever.

Hello! I remember your avatar :lol: Things are probably a lot slower than when you were here last. Some folks who were away for awhile have come back recently, so good timing. We don't get that many religious or conspiracy nuts these days (just missed one), most of the "interesting" threads revolve around political stuff as is the trend these days, for better or for worse. Anyways, enjoy!

Yeah, things do seem a bit slower. Did someone take down the "Chewtoys Wanted" sign? :lol:

On the other hand, there's tons of good stuff to catch up on. Should be worth a few months of reading.
In the meantime, I'm posting some of my art in the Arts and Entertainment section.

Cheers!

Hello I don't think we've met before, but I also came back to find all is well, but quiet. Facebook is to blame. I think.

Well, I tend to lurk a lot, so we probably didn't interact. But I remember you. Glad to see you here! :wave:
