Just wanted to thank everyone who so warmly welcomed me to the Forums so far - that was SO sweet, hehe!!! So yea, a BIG thanx.
And umm, I know some ppl asked me questions, so I guess I'll answer all of them in this reply! So ok, these go out to -
Guest: I'm from Canada, and yes UE'ing, (Urban Exploration); is AWESOME! - I do enjoy UE'ing old buildings, but also like you mentioned....yes, UE'ing nature is also lovely - I LOVE nature & animals, and I always love exploring any intriguing, old areas in nature; just talking walks, etc, hehe. Actually, there's this one place in particular, (you probably wouldn't know it, seeing as your in the US); but it's in Canada, not too far from me - it's called Rouge Beach Park and it's just SO amazing, man!!! - I've been going there since I was little, and I still go there now...it will always hold a special place in my heart. I just LOVE going to this one spot there in particular, under this old bridge where the train still passes by! I could sit under there for HOURS, man!, just watching the water, birds, thinking, singing; doing anything really...it's so comforting. And it's even more special to me now, because I recently met my new boyfriend in that very spot!!! - it was SO romantic, teehee. But yea, I also love forests & willow trees - they're the best *sigh*...I believe they all have spirits...I always wonder what they're thinking, man!? When their branches blow, it's like they're speaking to eachother! Hmm, but I won't ramble-on, hehe...nice meeting you!
Psychhead: Hello, I'm glad your glad I'm here, hehe; (that was sweet)! But yes, I often wonder the same thing - is it all becoming lost? Ya' know, like...people like me and my mum, hehe! I always look around me when I'm out & about in this World, and I feel like I'm swirling in some kind of sad DAZE, man! It's weird, like...I look @ a lot of ppl my age, and SO many of them seem to be like "sheep", they all look the same, listen to the SAME music, "act" the same, etc! Like I go out & get all these weird looks/stares, but I feel proud - because I know I'm ME! But it's so sad, because it's like almost EVERYONE now is like, "following" eachother - either Organized Religion, or 'Organized', Pre-Manufactured Music that I call 'MWAM', (Music Without A Message); ie. this newfound and INSANE, (in my opinion); "Rapper" craze that I just do NOT 'get' at all! Like, I don't mean to "bash", because I believe ppl should be able to be themselves & express themselves freely, so I don't say much - but since we're sort of on the topic of "all being lost", I just have a BURNING itch to bitch, lol! - so yea, I don't know, I just feel like a dying breed...for example, me & my mother have always had SO much in common and been really close, etc - she's like the 'older' hippie & I'm the 'young' hippie! And whenever we go out together or even turn on the t.v. or something, we both feel the same way; like WHAT HAPPENED, man!? LOL, like even though I *unfortunately* wasn't around in her time, (which is one of my biggest regrets), so it seems weird for ME to be saying, "WHAT HAPPENED!?"; but I do! And I feel I can't relate to hardly ANYONE, other than my mum, (and maybe a few others on Forums like this, hehe)!, because of my views on life/the World, the "Government" -(don't get me started, LOL)!!! but even the way I dress, the music I listen to, etc...and it's so sad - like, what IS the World coming to...what happened to the days when more ppl, (apart from me & the odd few, lol); were inspired by people like Grace, Jimi, Jim, Stevie and so many other beautiful, amazing & ROCKIN' ppl w/ something to say!; who were "different"/individuals, carefree - making a DIFFERENCE!? - instead of apeing/admiring these OBSCENE, violent, insipid Thugs on Rap videos, (ie. "50 Cent" or "Eminem"); who send out violent, sexist messages to anyone willing to listen; and walking around causing trouble, (in gangs, etc), and being so ANGRY!? I mean, am I the only one who feels this way!? - Where's the LOVE, man!?
zeke: Hi! Yea, I know eh'? Hehe, I felt the same way; but it really turns-out that we "old building/UE enthusiests" arn't a dying breed! Ya' know there's actually this website if ya' wanna' check it out man! It's called - http://www.infiltration.org
! It has some WAY cool articles by other UEer's and also information on abandoned places & even some forums...check it out, I did & I was SO glad to stumble upon it, hehe! Only thing is....if you join the forums, beware of a few really nasty ppl, man - real meanies, I let myself be hurt by a couple of em' online, BIG mistake! - if they try to pick on you, just IGNORE, hehe; they're not worth your time...nice meeting you!
knight of ni: Hey, man; great to meet you - we have so much in common! Yea, I know what ya' mean tho'; it's always good to know there's others like us out there, because, (well I said in my other post, so I won't start ranting again, HAHA)!!, but yea...it sure does seem like there isn't much hope for our generation musically alot of the time - pretty sad...oh well, hopefully we can help pave the way, man - YAY!
