Hang With Friends

Location: Earth
Members: 852
Latest Activity: on Wednesday

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

Can't hear that song without thinking of the German disco version:

"Sinking in der reyn, yust sinking in der rein". Can't remember what the name of the group was supposed to be but was obviously a bunch of second-rate session singers cobbled together with a drum-machine and a synthesizer. So bad it was funny.

Tony, I don't think I have a "soul," so I ain't afraid.  And "Singin' in the Rain" is one of my all-time favorite musicals, too.

And, as a former ice skater, this just blows me away every time I watch it:

Don't know if we've had this one before.

Time for work, getting ready, wanted to leave you with this. From 'Singing in the Rain'.

Samhain just around the corner. My fathers mother immigrated from Ireland when she was 6 yrs. old. I vaguely remember her, died when I was 15. But when I was younger and she did come around, she told the best shivery stories to us. And even though she didn't have a brogue being raised in America, she always called Halloween Samhain.

So, happy Samhain to all, and keep an ear out for the Ban Sidhe. And whatever you do Halloween night, accept no ride from Dullan in his Coiste Bodhar, for he is out collecting souls, and you don't want to be counted in that number, for sure.

Goodnight to all.
