Hang With Friends

Latest Activity: yesterday

Come on in, pull up a chair!

Picture yourself spending some time with congenial friends, sharing your lives and pictures from your cell phones." They're curious about that cool game, song, movie, camping trip, art show, or other event that fascinated you. You talk about all kinds of stuff, poetry, styles, personal achievements, relationships, and bad days. You can share your inner child, and laugh together. They sympathetically listen to your feelings about serious topics like politics or climate change, even when they don't agree.

Personal validation comes from paying attention to one another, giving more than you get. Everyone respects you and themselves, despite our amazing range of personal tastes and interests. They'll tell you they don't agree with an idea or behavior without implying you're a bad person or somehow deficient. It's an "I'm OK, You're OK" kind of fellowship, where nobody tries to make himself look better by picking on somebody else.

Nobody here is into mind games. A discussion started with a loaded guilt-throwing question will be deleted.

This group is not intended to compete with other groups on topics they cover but to "fill in the cracks." Whenever a discussion dwells at length on a topic for which there's an existing group, we urge you to provide members a link to that group to continue along their tangent.

A comment is a shout-out, which will get lost in a few days, because the comment wall is just a random stack.

Please start a discussion to share stories, photos, and videos. Replies will pop up in your "latest activity" and a conversation can develop from the feelings and thoughts you contributed. Groups are built on discussions.

Let's not define ourselves or others by our worst behaviors

Started by Ruth Anthony-Gardner. Last reply by Dominique Lutz Apr 16. 6 Replies

My take on the recent melt down at Hang With Friends, of which I missed part, is that some of us were tripped up by a habit of thought. It's something we learn growing up, and use without realizing how much pain it can generate -  failing to…Continue

Ode to Yahweh (Non Stamp Collector & 43alley)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Joan Denoo Mar 24. 1 Reply

Ages ago (five or six years, I guess it is) when I first started recognizing my own atheism, one of the first atheist YouTubers I ran onto was Non Stamp Collector.  His handiwork wasn't up to Disney's standards, nor even Hanna-Barbera, but his wit…Continue

Don't forget diapers, sanitary pads, shields, adult diapers, feminine hygiene, jock itch, incontinence, diarrhea/constipation, & hemorrhoids!!! All the focus is in the crotch somehow!!!!

My sister was watching the USC-UCLA game this past Saturday, and it seemed like nothing BUT car and jewelry comm'ls.  (When I'm using the computer , I'm sitting with my back to the TV, so I get to hear all the crap....and none of the bands.)

We both want to upchuck when we hear, "Every kiss begins with Kay;"  It's so OLD!

Comment by Bertold Brautigan on December 3, 2014 at 10:26am

You're so right, Randy. I especially despise the luxury car ads with the new car in the driveway with a gigantic bow. Puke!

Comment by Randall Smith on December 3, 2014 at 7:30am

And do you notice the number of car/truck commercials this time of year? I know the market is strong now, but it's ridiculous to have so many commercials. Toss in car insurance ads, and it's almost a slam dunk. Don't forget jewelry and ED commercials as fill-ins. IIIEEEEEEE !!!!!!

Yes Randy, It's Linda Ronstadt.  Probably my favorite singer.  Her greatest hits is the second CD in my player.  The first is "TRIO", with her, Emmylou Harris, and Dolly Parton.

The Everly Brothers is one of my favorite groups as well.  Didn't know that Phil had died.  He was 2 years older than me and Don is 4 years older than me.

Comment by Idaho Spud on December 2, 2014 at 10:16am

Do they still make new Mustangs?  You can tell I'm not into cars.

Comment by Randall Smith on December 2, 2014 at 7:34am

So, in looking up the Everly Brothers, I discovered (or had forgotten) Phil died last January. They both were heavy smokers and drug users. (And it's Ronstadt--I think!)

Roads coated with ice this morning. Think I'll stay home. Welcome December.

I have some good ideas on where to put that guy's cruelcifixy thing!!!!!

I was wondering if Carl would private message us his address to send a cheque or money order. I still want to contribute something over the next few months.

Comment by Randall Smith on December 1, 2014 at 7:52am

I love looking up people from my childhood--"googling", that is. When I looked up Linda Rondstat (sp?) the other day, I was surprised at how old she looked! Next on my list, the Everly Bros. All I want to do is dream....!

Oh! I missed the pj party! Monday morning here, mist and rain (come and get it!) and I'm off to the dentist. Waving to you!
