Social interactions suck, and I hate that I hate them

Posted by Fuzz , 24 December 2013 · 491 views

Over the last two years I've become more reclusive than ever before. I left school this time last year and have worked from home all of 2013. I used to travel to the university every day to attend class or work. i worked at a computer lab, a very public place where I would help students who needed any kind of help - technical or just someone to help them...

Hmm....where to go from here...

Posted by Fuzz , 10 September 2013 · 747 views

I wrote a blog back in Februrary where I talked about wishing I could just restart GDA & GDC from scratch. Get a complete do-over. 
 
Here I am seven months later, thankfully haven't deleted everything, but wondering where things are going from here.
 
I can't shake this feeling like things aren't working out. I feel like the sites are...

No more Static Noise

Posted by Fuzz , 04 June 2013 · 938 views

I have decided to kill off Static Noise. Even though it's been months since we did a show, and it's been about a year since we did them weekly and regularly, I let the guys know that I have no plans to bring the show back. I also removed it from iTunes so we could stop paying the $20/month we paid to host it.
 
The show was a lot of fun. We had some...

Why Green Day shouldn't be playing more trilogy songs

Posted by Fuzz , 30 March 2013 · 1,658 views

I've been seeing a lot of people talking about Green Day's set list now that they're back on the road. There have been some complaints that they aren't playing more trilogy songs, which usually goes something like this 
 
Looks at the setlists for their two shows so far during the full tour, I see that they play about 27 songs each night. Out of...

My struggle with depression

Posted by Fuzz , 16 March 2013 · 1,384 views

Depression sucks, and it's a bitch to explain. I've struggled with varying levels of depression since 2005. While I've had my low points of actually feeling sad and helpless, I've also recovered from those to feel amazing highs like last year when I was able to lose 40 pounds from March - June in 2012. I was eating healthy (very...

I wish I could restart GDA and GDC

Posted by Fuzz , 20 February 2013 · 918 views

GDA is my full time job. I've been sucking at it lately. I feel guilty about it, but it's yet to change. When I visit GDA and GDC I feel like there's just so much stuff I want to change. I wish I could restart both sites from scratch. GDC feels bloated. I feel like we have too many subforums and the community is splintered because of it. I don't feel like...

In Defense of Green Day for Twilight

Posted by Fuzz , 04 October 2012 · 3,367 views

As soon as I got word about Green Day allowing a new song in the upcoming Twilight movie, I knew what to expect, fans bitching about it. Maybe rightfully so. But I thought I'd offer a different point of view for the sake of conversation.

Allowing songs in a movie doesn't really define...

So much to do, such little time

Posted by Fuzz , 02 October 2012 · 892 views

I fell into a nasty slump for much of last month which left me feeling uninspired and lazier than usual. I didn't do much work on GDA (or anywhere for that matter) and let a lot of stuff fall to the side. Then over the last 48 hours, super Andres (as Lone calls my exceptionally productive side) came out. I hit these peaks where things start making...

I feel like I'm taking crazy pills

Yesterday's news about Billie Joe getting treatment for substance abuse has definitely hit me in a way I wasn't expecting. As someone said on GDA

This isn't my fucking problem.
But it hurts. It hurts really, really, bad
