very cute convo guys nice job
Remember how bad the search function on AP was?
I’d be like “Hey search bar, are there any threads about Paramore?” And it would be like “Who? No, never heard of em.”
at least there's no fuckin babe/pornstar threads here
nothing against pornstars
but a lot against the type of people that comment in pornstar threads on a pop punk website
There is it's called the video game thread
Haha yeah, very discernible distinction there
I miss being able to go back and see my old posts to remember how I used to be, but other than that not really.
The only thing I miss about AP is IWasACamera or whatever his name was. That dude introduced me to so much incredible music and literally helped forge my taste permanently.
I'm SO glad I can't go back and read how annoying I was back then.
i started posting on AP in the general forum in 2007 when i was a dumb young teen (vandalsandquinn) and very impressionable, and i think it taught me that being a douche to others on the internet was cool and funny - *narrator voice* it wasn't. it was a different kind of turbulent time on the internet back then. it was also weird to be a young girl in that environment, there was some kind of creepy behavior at times and i also felt like i needed to be a certain way to "fit in".
but! AP introduced me to some music and classics i never would have listened to otherwise, some of my long time favorite artists (ted leo and elliott smith!) were introduced to me at a young age thanks to the forums. there were also some genuinely cool people i "knew" who i talked to a lot and considered friends. i haven't been in touch with anyone for a long time but i appreciate AP for what it was, good and bad.
it seems like this community is nicer, more mature, and the site itself is better!
i miss getting all the hottest CIWWAF news.
truly the curse of curves
