deleted the last, never can tell how my tone will come across, though we all know each other so you'll read into and add/subtract to fit whatever you want anyway as it should be.
need to know what everyone's intention is with the site. i'll start by putting my full idea out, comment away.
we have basically at our disposal, the efforts of a professional Web Developer, in exchange for his ability to add it to the list in his portfolio.
what this means is whatever you can think of within reason could potentially come to fruition with a little back and forth and a lot of thanks to Justin. You don't know him, but you will soon enough. Dude rules it in just about every aspect.
With this, I hesitate to enlist his efforts and putting him through the frustration if it's not going to pan out to anything on our end.
I felt freaked out by not having regular contact with you guys. The phone calls consisting of "What have you been up to?", "Same old", "Me too", "Got drunk the other day did some stupid shit", "Oh yeah? Me too, that's crazy" just wasn't filling the void.
I longed for the days of hashing out ideas for good or ill, often knowing we were damn wrong from the start, just to instigate the thought process and sharing with one another. Turning the gears on the regular.
This escalated into a demand that everyone start going haywire on the Danger Crew myspace, which was already woefully inadequate in terms of it's capabilities.
Conversations with Chunks resulted in him taking the reigns and redoing what I think was a previous personal blogger account into a group one, which is this very site you add to yourself.
After initial conversations, it turned to the excitement of the potential of a review/opinion/whatever site that people other than ourselves might actually check into regularly, with the very far off if ever possibility that our collective writing/recollection/addiction pool had the potential to turn into something bigger and profitable at some point in the far off future. Though never demanded or expected, it was prominently in the back of our minds, and by back I mean the very front. While it would not be fair for me to speak for chunks, this came across as a consensual possible longing.
I'm not sure if any one but him and i were aware of this, as it hadn't directly been brought up, so there it is.
I had a prior post, that i deleted if you even saw it that brushed on this in the wrong ways maybe, but i realized it was unfair of me to get frustrated that other people were not taking it as seriously as i thought i was, when i never bothered to explain how serious i was taking it. what a dummy i am indeed.
in a not condescending way at all, i need to know where everyone is coming from if we attempt to take this seriously with regular installments, demanded output, time frames, basically a freelance job until it becomes more. If we want it to be, i have no doubt it will turn into that. If we just want to treat it as a glorified group myspace page, and again i have no problems with that and am not intending to be slight in the least, lemme know. I'm down for sharing of any kind, but my expectations were greater, and the immediate output from everyone out of the gate was on par with what chunks and i had discussed initially.
I know first hand the difficulties of keeping up with this shit, finding the time, and agonizing over every word knowing we are all our biggest critics as friends, but trying to determine where this is going if it is to ever be more than a sight to repost youtube videos.
and i like funny youtube videos. i'm not hating please don't take this as negative. please please please give your input, what you'd like to see, and how much you want to do. we can take the more all in people to do things for now, and pull in people off the bench as we get overwhelmed or find things that are exciting enough that we just can't keep our mouths shut.
please share your thoughts, and please make them longer than a one sentence comment. i'm looking for actual input, potential goals, and involvement levels here. yes it seems like work cause it is, but already it's seemed incredibly gratifying personally, and i've been amazingly impressed with the energy and thought behind everyone else's output.
the exact shit i was looking for in the first place, tiny bubbles of the intensity we shared over too many drunken nights trying to bide our time in the best ways possible.
and i didn't split this cause i wanted you to be forced to pay attention. i'm an asshole i know.
oh yeah, keep in mind. while it has a million diff. origins to a million diff. folks, type in "Danger Dome" in google. we are #2 and #3 as of this moment anyway. while not a huge step, and a random search, we are very easily found if looked for even in our current form. Potential indeed.
