@  xcrash1998 : (30 November 2019 - 11:07 PM) New fictional holiday "Index Day"
@  Fire Blazer : (28 November 2019 - 08:52 PM) yeah just guest bots and stuff I think :( we really were active once upon a time though...
@  kirant : (26 November 2019 - 03:48 PM) No invasion. I imagine a lot of guest bots visiting for indexing purposes.
@  xcrash1998 : (26 November 2019 - 02:15 PM) How is most people online at 959 for the 8th of October of this year? Is that right? Did I miss something or was there somekind of spambot invasion?
@  xcrash1998 : (26 November 2019 - 02:06 PM) I know what you mean, it gets awkard to post something unrelated to the current conversation, and even if somebody picks up on it, it would just become a huge mess in the c hatbox if a multitude of groups talk about different topics.
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:45 PM) especially better imo if you want to update on a topic but like only occasionally (e.g. a project you're working on or a let's play of a game)
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) it's hard for me to explain precisely why but forums just like work better for meaningful discussion over a longer period of time ig
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) but that's def just not hte same ig, idk
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) yeah, you can also kind of respond at your own pace on forums. Discord conversations are often like... it's awkward to respond to something that happened a while ago, especially if the server is active, but even just in general. since you sort of need to keep track of multiple conversations at once at times, and it's not like it has a good reply/quote system ala forums, closest thing really is to copy/paste or screenshot the text you're responding to and then type a response below
@  Elwood : (09 November 2019 - 11:29 AM) Adding on to what's been said, I just enjoy the order and structure of the forums. You can look through the threads and know exactly what people are talking about. Conversation get lost and buried on discord which is why I'm not a big fan of it.
@  kirant : (06 November 2019 - 05:31 AM) I enjoy that part of forums too. They become niche communities where you can have very specialized conversations as opposed to the cluttered mess in Discord.
@  Ezra : (31 October 2019 - 01:17 AM) Yeah, part of me wishes I could go back to the times forums were more prevalent. I really enjoyed how even several different forums based off the same franchise could feel so different. It's not like what we now is bad though, I just feel nostalgic for old times.
@  Fire Blazer : (30 October 2019 - 06:39 AM) also forums in general are just not as prevalent, there are so many other ways to interact these days, like Twitter, FB, Tumblr, etc., where you can just throw your thoughts into the void. I think that's the real issue and that the only people rly interested in forums these days are either super dedicated to whatever they're about, have a specific reason/need to (e.g. support forums), or grew up with them and are thus attached to the idea enough to continue to try and use them (this was kinda me for a while lol but things happen, I couldn't keep it up forever)
@  Fire Blazer : (30 October 2019 - 06:36 AM) I've posted on SF for various reasons ofc but in terms of like making friends and stuff it's p. much just been smaller groups/forums, yeah. mainly FES
@  Elwood : (27 October 2019 - 10:08 PM) Only reason I'm even on Serenes was because I had hacking questions. @Ezra yeah I figured it must be an age thing. I've been called an old man by many a child because I use Facebook.
@  kirant : (26 October 2019 - 09:39 PM) It's strange. I don't think I've ever posted on Serenes...period. I've always been a fan of smaller forums.
@  Ezra : (26 October 2019 - 05:49 AM) I think it's because a lot of newer FE players didn't frequent forums growing up. And those that do probably end up on Serenes.
@  Elwood : (25 October 2019 - 07:30 AM) I would love to revitalize this place I'm just not sure how that would be done. I mean with how main stream FE seems to have become I'm honestly surprised we don't have more members.
@  Fire Blazer : (21 October 2019 - 08:04 PM) tfw u not coming here results in not seeing a PM from last month T_T ok gonna try and check at least every couple weeks now even if there's nothing here, lol...
@  Fire Blazer : (21 October 2019 - 07:54 PM) I come here almost never because I've fallen out of habit and basically just accepted the forums are dead :( it's neat you come here every day tho

so it turns out i'm one of the very few fans or 3rd wave ska in the city of Kerrville Texas(there might be two people other than me...highly doubt that many though). so the only way for me to discuss good music and not hear "we likes cuntry music 'round here" would be on the interwebs. so lets have at it.

My favorite ska band right now(it changes from time to time) is streetlight manifesto closely followed by suburban legends.

apparently ska isn't dead yet. an album just came out a few months ago 

 

 

inb4 some smartass like me comes along i'm aware that it's only one song there. it's pretty good stuff imo. ska isn't for everyone, but it's some good chill out music.

 

Edit: i should note that this isn't third wave like most people who listen to ska at all with probably know. it's more traditional/closer to reggae

I like it. It's like raggae with a funky twist.
Dave Grohl is rock and roll personified.

Actually a real smart genius man, but I'll never show it.

ska was originally a derivative of reggae so that makes sense =P most of the stuff i listen to though is called 3rd wave. it's this stuff mixed with a little punk.

Can someone explain what ska is? Some kind of awkward music genre?

That's basically correct. I'm not the best at explaining, but I can suggest a song to listen to that pretty much sums up what Ska is. Sell out by reel big fish is a good one. The headitation song there is just about as far away from what ska is to me though. I only called it that because that's technically what it is.

It's really not the kind of music that everyone would want to listen to, but I find that basically everyone who does I can get along with. Must be a personality thing that makes people like a horn section with their punk.

 

Edit since i'm not on my phone anymore: just to be clear that gilla1ness guy does make ska music. it's just that it's closer to traditional ska, and that stuff is basically indistinguishable from reggae if you're not paying attention. in fact i was playing it at work, and most people asked my why i was playing Jamaican music(lol fuckin texas man). what i like to listen to is officially called 3rd wave ska, and that's what the band reel big fish plays. it's basically where ska became its own genre instead of being a branch of reggae. there's still a lot of variance within 3rd wave too. you've got stuff like streetlight manifesto which is closer to punk, you've got reel big fish which is closer to pop, the aquabats which made a kids show for a bit. it's a surprisingly diverse style which complements covering music very well when done properly. especially 80s music. there's a duran duran tribute album done all by ska artists actually. pretty good shit.
