shitty buzz. sounds to me like one of the owners wasn't pulling his weight (looking at you chris.) just kidding.

anyways thanks. as japanese tv is the most horrifyingly god awful mix of mindless tripe and incomplete sporting coverage, this place made nights at home in japan bearable. a few haposhus, a few hot knives to take the edge off, and hours of flamewar goodness. cheers.

later you crazy bunch of bastards

I want to say how much I enjoyed writing posts for and
reading posts on your site. I will really miss it. I hope that
you will resurrect it someday in some modified form.

Take care of yourselves and be well,

Nah, this is treason. This is the raft of the Medusa all over again. This is unforgivable.

If this is to be the end. So be it.

We each have our battles, standing firm or running like mad. For we have all gone together. Standing with and for one another in need. Weathering the cannon, and the fire that falls upon us from all sides.

As the time draws nigh, the words of Alfred Lord Tennyson spring to mind.

The Charge of the Light Brigade wrote:Half a league, half a league,
Half a league onward,
All in the valley of Death
Rode the six hundred.
"Forward, the Light Brigade!
"Charge for the guns!" he said:
Into the valley of Death
Rode the six hundred.

"Forward, the Light Brigade!"
Was there a man dismay'd?
Not tho' the soldier knew
Someone had blunder'd:
Their's not to make reply,
Their's not to reason why,
Their's but to do and die:
Into the valley of Death
Rode the six hundred.

Cannon to right of them,
Cannon to left of them,
Cannon in front of them
Volley'd and thunder'd;
Storm'd at with shot and shell,
Boldly they rode and well,
Into the jaws of Death,
Into the mouth of Hell
Rode the six hundred.

Flash'd all their sabres bare,
Flash'd as they turn'd in air,
Sabring the gunners there,
Charging an army, while
All the world wonder'd:
Plunged in the battery-smoke
Right thro' the line they broke;
Cossack and Russian
Reel'd from the sabre stroke
Shatter'd and sunder'd.
Then they rode back, but not
Not the six hundred.

Cannon to right of them,
Cannon to left of them,
Cannon behind them
Volley'd and thunder'd;
Storm'd at with shot and shell,
While horse and hero fell,
They that had fought so well
Came thro' the jaws of Death
Back from the mouth of Hell,
All that was left of them,
Left of six hundred.

When can their glory fade?
O the wild charge they made!
All the world wondered.
Honor the charge they made,
Honor the Light Brigade,
Noble six hundred.

(J. E. Tilton and Company, Boston, 1870)


Spare a beer, be of good cheer, and until that time we meet again. It has been a pleasure, and perhaps ending a bit sooner than one might like. Leaving a bitter-sweet taste of regret, of questions not posed, of thoughts not uttered. Of beers not drunk, and stories not heard.

Here is to tomorrow, whatever she may bring.
Dancing in the summer light, the clouds come drifting in.
Fade all to darkness,
the night a velvet black,
may stars like diamonds light our way, should we aught be coming back.

Until the dawn comes again, I wish you all goodnight ...

Barten may well be right, it may well be treason. If it is, may we all not drown alone.

What? What? What?

I log in after a month or so off of LJ.....just in time to say goodbye apparently.

Man, I loved these forums. They got me through many a day of work.

Thanks, Chris and Shawn, you guys deserve much credit (and a break I guess).

Please come back sometime in the future or hand off or sell the site to some other enthusiasts.

To all the people I've chatted/argued with:

It's sure been fun and I wish you all the best!!!!!

Peace out!

Wow, the return of Scully. Well, fuck me! I guess even slag dyke trolls can get sentimental as well.

Who knows? Perhaps Dark AnusGel or Samurai Jerkoff will show up as well.

Chris, Shawn, Fetus, Denizens of Let's Japan: Otsukaresama deshita. Thanks for all of the hard work over the years. Your efforts are much appreciated, and I'm willing to bet through your actions you have inadvertently saved some peoples' lives. You guys are SAINTS!!!

Love, Mog.
