Well since the club has been down for pretty much the span of a summer vacation I thought it would be fun to share what each of us has been up to in the last couple of months.

Me, I was in a 90 man poker tournament in Vegas (which I eventually took 3rd) when someone called me and asked what happened to the 600 club. It turns out the old provider scrapped the server when it got compromised instead of fixing the problem. Fack!

I was driving with a car full of belongings to move back to L.A., a city which I had abandoned about 6 years ago and sworn never to return to. By the time I made it to LA and got settled in the site had been down for almost a week. A long story short, all attempts to resurrect the old site were met with resistance (crap server, corrupted database files, incompatible php versions, etc).

So then I said fuck it and spent the remainder of the summer bumming around Hollywood bookstores, bars and nightclubs.

The End.

P.S. Oh yeah, and then I brought the site back to life with my mad CPR skills.

I gained a Grandson back in May (I think it was May) and gained my old job back at the county animal control office. I was pretty damned excited over that shit. I was fired a few years back from this same job and that old boss is no longer there...YAY.

My Mother-in-law died so my neice moved in with me. Then her brother shortly followed. I like having them here, never a dull moment.

My oldest son started trade school a whole 3 hour drive away. He comes home twice a month. I miss him but he will make decent money once he's out.

My youngest son had a pregnancy scare with his girlfriend but turned out she was just having a rough month. Then they broke up and now I have my son back.

In all it's a good summer and I'm happy and that is ALL that matters. Family says "If Momma ain't happy, nobody is happy."

My summer was pretty much a wash. This is our insanely busy time at work. So I spent most Saturdays at work, with no overtime, just trying to catch up. I bought a big ass smoker/grill, so many nights I was in sweltering heat preparing flesh over hot coals. Had some very good battles with my kid who thinks he knows everything. One resulting in police being called. Like you Xear, I played a ton of poker. My bankroll grew, but since I still prefer the cheap games, not to some level that I bought a Lambo or something. We dabbled in horse racing. Spent a shitload on repairing the siding that blew off my house earlier in the year. Discovered the wonders of blueberry vodka. Got great seats for a Los Lonely Boys concert. Ate the hottest hot wings I have ever eaten in my life at the same concert. So hot, I had to sign a waiver to get them. Then I could only finish one and spent 2 days trying to recover from it. Spent half a day in the cold and rain for another concert, and left before we even got in. Overall, my summer was one of work, work, and more work.

I have been passing time by studying human behavior on the website YouTube… The drama, bullshit, personal attacks, and trolling that go on there is truly amazing… All this on a video site, so much for the thought that people might be nicer if they see a face on the other end…

Other than continuing to forge ahead in life by working and getting myself back to being healthy that is…

I did Summer School. Mathematics, Propositional Calculus, Logic and whatnot. Then planned out my fall schedule.

Hung out at the club mostly, then started working the door for rave nights. Try to keep the kids and drug dealing out. Have a big guy I can send after people. Keeps me on my toes.

My pets started getting sick, so I spent a grand on medication and vet visits, and lost two of my rats.

Saw Combichrist and Imperative Reaction when they played at our club. It was the best show we had there.

I was supposed to be in LA around this week, but that didn't pan out. Haven't had much of a vacation. My vacation will be in October when I visit my other half in San Diego.

I was hanging out at the mall with an old friend of mine and we bumped into an acquaintance of his. That acquaintance proceeded to literally bump into another (he tackled him in the food court and almost brained him on a trash can). That acquaintance and I have been dating for about three months now and he's moved in with my parents and I for the next (senior) school year. That and my mother is moving to Alaska for an internship as a hospital chaplain (Episcopalian, but it's a Catholic hospital). Other than that it's been a slow summer. I quit my job and haven't found a new one yet, so I've been bored and broke. Hooray for school... never thought I'd say that.

Recently started my own bizniz: "Bad Crowd Ltd.", and have been working like a madman since then. Had two weeks of vacation, but spent them herding my daughters through the joys of beach life and hunting for poisonous insects.

Had a very nice weekend in Amsterdam staying in a fantastic hotel run by two old gays:

Eating Rijstaffel (Indonesian cuisine) and going to concerts.
Saw "Tokyo Ska Paradise Orchestra":

Great fun!

Let's see: I got my baphomet tattoo enhanced, worked different summer jobs, enrolled in Platt College for graphic design, pondered on how best to maximize my personal success, got three piercings, visited bars/clubs; and tried to stay cool in this freakin hot weather \:\)


P.S. Good job Xear; your work is well appreciated.

Hmmm...well, I left a 15-year career in banking for a new one in sales. I recorded a record with one of my bands. I re-read a lot of great books and picked up some new ones. I've really gotten into practicing ritualistic sensory depriavtion. Opened my mind up to a lot of great books, people, and other very interesting forums on the web. Best thing about the summer so far has been my successful weening from several perscription drugs with the help of some very good doctors. In a few weeks I celebrate my 10th wedding anniversary and life is pretty damn grand.

It is winter here rather than summer, but I feel compelled to add my 2 cents.

Seperated from my Husband of 5 years after realizing I was married to a psychic vampire and that now I have to be selfish at times for the sake of my health, I only gave and didn't receive emotionally or on alot of levels.

At first he moved out and went to another state to work, but had a serious accident that left his best friend a quadraplegic and him self brutally scared inside and out.

He moved back home and I went to a girlfriends for a break (I'd had the children 4 months straight and with my health it's too much for me to cope with) and he proceeded to lock me out of the house, conveniently in his name only.

So I stayed with my sober born again friend for a month whilst I found another house to live in.

That, I must say was very interesting, as we had many a friendly discussion about Satanism v Christianity. Foretunately she is a very open minded person and we can talk about our different beliefs without having to try and make each other think the same thing. Something she wishes she could do with her Sister the Wiccan, who fights with her about religion all the time.

I had quite a revelation actually. I realised that the reason Christianity works for her is that since she was a kid she has been desperately looking for unconditional love, stemming from the fact that her alcoholic father loved her SOOOOO MUCH he used to get drunk and show her how much he loved her in a way a father shouldn't show a daughter.

She has finally found this love in God. Now, you and I know that it's really herself she is getting this love from, but hey, whatever works for people I reckon. More power to her for turning her life around from being a bar hostess in Japan substance abuser to becoming a sober psychiatric nurse and helping others.

Found my dream house in a great suburb 100 feet off the beachfront. Moved in about 8 weeks ago with the kids and cats (I get my dog once a fortnight for the weekend) and am trying to find it in myself to be supportive of my husband and his problems even though I'm afraid that nothings ever going to change and that he isn't the man I thought he was :-( Still he was once my best friend, and best friends don't just give up on people because they have issues. Still, I can only control myself and I want to be a better person. I'm afraid that means that unless he also wants to grow, there's no saving the marriage.

On a happier note, I have been gearing up for a motorbike ride I am doing in October for a group called Amazon Heart. They are a group that organizes adventures for women with Breast Cancer. Anyone interested in learning more about it please PM and I'll send you a link to my site. I don't want to put the address in the public forum as it has my full name etc on it.

Because of this I have also been organising a fund raising Dress Up and Cocktail Party for Breast Cancer month which in Australia is October. The theme is Gods and Goddesses and it should be quite a show. I've been incredibly lucky in that all my friends etc have been a fantastic help in this donating all sorts of things from thier services to prizes to raffle off. I have a blues artist doing a 1hour set, that I will be joining him in at the end and doing several numbers, one of which Less Than Perfect was released after the death from Breast Cancer of a very well known women here Belinda Emmett. She got BC at 19 and managed to live 8 years after she was told it had moved to her bones (the news I was given 18 months ago). She was very into alternative therapies including diet (she looked vegan), but in the end it was after all incurable which we all know, but try so hard to deny.

Because I will be riding from Melbourne to Adelaide, I have been trying to get in as much bike riding as I can, but being winter I haven't wanted to go out in the rain, so didn't really ride at all for about 6 weeks, but have been on a few really great rides in the last week or so. My VTR250 is not going to keep my happy for much longer so I think I'm going to upgrade to a Ducati Monster or Supersport sometime next year (once I've saved up enough bucks and gone for a few test rides on as many different bikes as possible).

Bought a great new LCD TV, computer and home theatre amp and speakers which I am currenlty using as my computer screen. You know what they say, when the going gets tough the tough go shopping.

I've also been working on finding my shadow self and really being able to be honest with myself about who I am as a person. Accepting my faults so that I can be more accepting of others. Fuck, but it's hard! I've accepted that I'm jealous, but it's really such an ugly emotion, I wish I wasn't.

Anyone know any good books or sites on dealing with Jealousy?

Well that just about sums it up. There's been some alcohol abuse, tears and tantrums, but overall it has been a very dynamic winter.

Here's hoping Spring is a little less dynamic and little more rewarding.

I could almost describe my summer by what I didn't do.

I didn't get to the beach at all this summer. That really sucks. I especially like to take my youngest because he so enjoys trying to drowned himself.

I didn't get to my 'compound' in the mountains of WV.

I didn't get to go camping or fishing. My oldest really wants to go fishing.

Some of this I may try to do some of this in fall. The mountains are awesome in the fall. Camping and fishing are still an option.

Mostly I did a lot of work this summer. The wife is looking to open her own shop. I am getting ready for some big events at work and trying to close out FY-08. My oldest did a bunch of work this summer (he is a child actor). He just finished the last season of HBO's "Wire." He home schooled last year and we spent some effort to get his portfolio complete for State review.

We also went through the drama of getting him into a regular school. All of the good charter schools had waiting lists hundreds deep. We finally settled on a good Catholic school. Don't worry, he wont burst into flames. He already has a skeptical view of religion. I am sure that this will only re-enforce it. The real pain in the ass is the $5000 price tag. I want my fucking voucher!

I didn't do much of anything. I went fishing and shooting (only because I have a big pond on my property) and my property is big enough to shoot targets etc. Shot a .22 and a .50 calibur black powder rifle. My boys of course have .20 guage shot guns that they like to shoot, and when I am feeling like they are going to shoot each other, I make them shoot BB guns.

This year will be my first year hunting. Should be interesting. I hope to actually shoot a deer and a bear (hopefully I don't get too scared and take off running because more than likely there will be no more me)

yeah so...

Nothing much of interest.

And I don't really seem to have much luck with fishing. My boys catch big mouth bass and catfish, but all I catch are little ass perch.

And the summer here hasn't been really hot, which is kind of unusual. The last 3 summers have been miserable. But this time around it rained for the most part. And that was okay with me.

My relatives in California have been complaining the past couple of days that it's been extremely hot at record highs and very humid. I find that funny because the humidity doesn't really happen in California, so they are really loving it. lol

Hmm, this summer, I did a bunch of stuff.
Mostly school, work, and drink.
I saw a bunch of shows, became a regular at this bar on saturdays.
Kept up straight A's in school.
Laughed a lot, visited Cali, bizarre trip but so worth it.
Oh, and got this cute 19 year old girlfriend too!!
Life is Bizarrely Very Cool!!!

I am so glad this place is back. \:\)

Summer in Florida doesn't seem to end until October, but I've had a good one so far. Haven't done much, but I've read some interesting books and seen some good movies. Kept in touch with my online friends, a couple of whom are visiting my part of town this weekend. Befriended a spider. One of my budgies died. Had a birthday.

Got used to a new crappy job, read alot, and managed to gain a few more pounds that I don't really need. Not very Satanic, I know.

All the time, dreaming about moving (or at least visiting for the first time) Las Vegas, a Satanic Paradise.

Hmm, Rick, I hear LA has a way of pulling you back to it no matter what. I have a couple of friends who live there and they swear they'll never leave. Bonus points for bumming around. Satanism is the kind of thing where absence is good for all of us.


Darkangel - Books are definitely a good addition.

Blackdragon - ok clubs are good too, lol...

ta2zz - Hey how's my favorite jerkoff doing? I am glad to hear you are getting back to being in good health. I look forward to killing you on the boards soon.

undeadridinghood - Better luck to you with your future endeavors then.

delusion - sounds shitty, hope life doesn't get the better of you. having a kid is a tough time.

Octavius - So you're in banking? Geez no wonder you're such a jerk. Mwahahaha. Take care...

Zephyrgirl, nice story. I understand your suffering. I can't say I agree with the god crap but whatever works I guess. We can't always have idealism all the time. As far as jealousy goes I don't have a whole lot to say. All I do is focus on my own light and the rest follows. Jealousy and anger just slip away once you realize everything you need is inside your own mind.

Fist - good to see you. weird on the Catholic school...

that's all I have time for

I've been working over at abrahadabra.com mostly, since 600club went down. It's been fun, got involved heavily in transhumanism, proto-Satanism and mutational alchemy.

visited the reservations over in New Mexico to see the family and do the Native American tribal crap. I'm getting ready to sell my house and move back out to Seattle to start an occult shop with a Satanic bent.

I also got (or am in the middle of getting) a divorce. go me, whoo!

good luck to everyone.

I've been a member for about a year now. I've missed the site during the summer and it's good to be back again. Life's finally back to normal.

So, except for missing this place, I've been working, visiting my family in Norway, been pissed about the fact that the weather didn't let me go snorkeling, read some books, obtained a boyfriend, confirmed my love for vodka, tequila and absinthe, practiced archery quite a lot, bought a copy of The SB since my online one disappeared, sold my budgies (silence at last! Me 1 - Budgies 0) and I managed to end my diet coke addiction.

So all together it's been a good summer, despite the crappy weather. Now I'm back in school again, studying ethology and animal welfare.

Nice to see so many familiar "faces" on here again. My The600Club-abstinence has barely been bearable.

Here in the pit of hell, you hibernate during the summer. Break starts in about a month when the temperature is consistently below 100F.

I hibernated a lot and ventured safely out to places with AC and drinks...

Hey all,
Been awhile. Spent last summer sailing my new home. Some may remember my "argument" with the cat-licks. Well, as you can see from the avatar, I won the argument.
The fuckin bitchop printed an apology in the Cleveland Plain Dealer for defaming me, gave up $500,000.00, (most all of which went to expenses, liars, and family) and resigned in disgrace- his legacy being the only bitchop in history hounded out of office by a mere mortal. HA you fuckin cunt, and his liar too- I'll fuck you in hell, in every possible way...

Entered the tall ship race single handed (never been done before). Took first place overall (and in class) in the Americas' Sail and been sailing around the East coast last summer, last winter, and all summer this year.
Planning to hit the Gulf Coast in search of derelict/ salvageable vessels, or work in a yard. (temporarily, of course)

Pretty much trying to heal from having to deal with the real bottomless pit of evil in this world- organized serial child rapists who masquerade as "xtians," and who literally will stop at nothing to destroy a persons' well being; physically, emotionally, and spiritually.

Seems every time I get back into a harbor, I find more assholes than at sea... hmmmm. I think I am hooked on cruising. Too bad I need to come to port for fuel, tobacco, alcohol and food. (Yes, in that order.)

Feels good to be back here, though.

Tat- did you have to go to the sandbox?
How was the experience?

I'll be around, somewhere in the world, maybe.

This summer was especially interesting because I traveled to the United Arab Emirates. (Dubai)

The Burj Al Arab Hotel was fantastic and I plan on returning there on my next visit. It's a place that will cater to your individual style, so regardless of your taste they can accommodate you.

I ate at the Al Muntaha and to get there it's actually accessed by a nifty submarine voyage (simulated of course). Not the best cuisine money can buy, but then again I enjoy a good BBQ more than anything. But it was good.

I traveled around the city and hit a couple of nightclubs and casinos, and the locals were amazing to me.

3 weeks wasn't enough time to enjoy everything, but I had to attended my sisters wedding. I'll be returning there early next year.

Looking forward to it.
