I got to tear up the backroads of California in a rebuilt CJ-6 with just, a v-8 engine in it, and that's all.

ETA: it didn't have body paint, specifically, the whole thing was hosed with truck bed liner on the outside. We named it Jehova, it was LOUD.

I tried to post a pic on the Arm Players Photo thread. Could someone wiser in the ways of SMF let me know:

a) can you clickthrough?
b) why did the Google Photos "Get a link" option and come up blank?

Thanks,
Morrolan

Yes.

A lot of image hosts are set up to try and maximise clickthroughs rather than embedding.  If you want to directly link that image click so it maximises, then right click and 'open image in new tab'.  That tab will have the URL you need to wrap in IMG tags.



Like so.

Random thought. I'm 22 years old and lets just say my month has been fairly stressful.

(instrumental)

As many people have urged, I should just start writing about anything and everything, so I did today. Please do not murder me with your opinions, but do be honest as a brand new writer/rapper. (Brand new, not about this mumble rap crap) This was a real life event, so I was just expressing.

I still remember....I still remember.
Back in the day, blast to the past before I was smoking on some glass, before the puff puff pass
When my mind was clear, my vision still sincere
Oh I remember those days, when I was across the world living life crazy across seaasss
Specifically one thing that made me crazy - and that was *you*, you see,
yeah you even though you cant see this, it's you. I know if you saw this right now, you'd know it too.

I remember spending time everyday with you, I remember the only thing on my mind that could stay steady...was *you*.

Fast forward now and I'm looking back, I think about all the good times, short times....yeah a whole month of bliss

When I walked out that store, walked out the door on that old cobblestone street, not to sound cocky but surrounded by girls on this youth group trip
imploring me with all these questions...then you and chills commence
oh the suspense, I didn't know what to do, instincts progressed

Lost in a different world than reality, I didn't know how or why
but when I saw you I lost the concept of time...
seriously love atfirst sight was a myth until I saw you and took a bite.
Well how could I help myself I was smitten with love, and I had never had a girl...going into junior year and I was still innocent as -fuck!-
Almost made me want to duck, so beautiful I almost wanted to run
but that wasn't it, you met me mentally, physically, spiritually and that's why I'm writing about you lyrically..
But you, you changed everything when I saw you, I heard my soul calling and I had to have you, I have to have you be mine.
Flowers and chocolocates, wine and a good time, a kiss that blew my mind I still think about you to this day, and how you're doing oh so great...

And then I'm here. And you got a man who's being a man, stacking bands and provide everything you could ever want, need or understand.
Treat you right. Hold you right. Love you right. Care for you right.

Damn. I guess that's how life goes, cuz its crazy - when a man loves, he gone love you until end of eternity girl, that's why I still think about you, feel like a damn fool, but at least I aint no tool in 2018.

But now I know you're a queen, and you got a king? And me? I'm just obscene if I were to think I deserved you now, just a dude on the scene watching sidelines remembering....I still remember.

I love this. I love this so bad.

I would love to hear you do it. I'd pass that shit around like free crack rocks.

Thank you. I haven't felt as alive as I did writing with emotion there. I just need to practice now, I have the heart down.

Ditto.  I think it deserves it’s own thread, especially if you mean to make a practice of it.  Maybe paste it into a new one called “In this thread we FLOW”.  8)

On the subject matter, there are two bits of relationship advice I wish I knew when I was 22.  Or better yet, in high school:
  • Don’t wait for something to happen (it usually won’t), and don’t ‘tell her how you feel’ (it’s asking her to say yes to too much at once), just ask her out.
  • Since you obviously handled #1 already, here’s the second one: Don’t keep throwing a party in your heart for someone who’s not gonna show up.  A month, two if you need it, three if she’s really worth it, but after that...you gotta keep moving forward.  The people who let us down that hard once are usually more likely to do it again anyway.

Glad to see you working through it, man!
You know I think if James simply retitled his thread "Cheese" and apologized for his first post being off-topic, all problems would be solved.

Oh no, I been over her a loooong time, still comes to mind though. I figured I'd start early on, work my way up with the experiences to the real, gritty....shitty stuff.

Is there a word for one's ability to teach? Like, if someone was not a good teacher, you would say they lacked _____.

Like if someone is a good teacher they have a lot of ________. Or a strong ______.

I feel like there should be a word for one's ability to impart knowledge on others.  Like, if Impartial wasn't already a word that meant something else.

Wisdom is close. Really close, but not right. You can have lots of Wisdom but be an awful teacher. Maybe a word half way between Wisdom and Communication.

Hmmm. That's more the word you'd use to for "the methods of teaching". Unless you can be pedagocious it's not quite what I'm looking for.

Someone who learns quickly is astute, clever, talented. What do you call someone who teaches quickly. There has to be a word, right?

Everyone was bitching about this live action Death Note. I don't know what the problem is. Very watchable.

I also enjoyed it! Seems like an unpopular opinion. Maybe it was a little cheesy but that is to be expected given the premise.
