So I get almost all of my irish whistle sheet music from this site called The Session, and that shit has been online forever. It's basic as fuck, but it works. I noticed, though, that some of the original comments posted on the oldest tunes date back well over a decade and it kinda blew my mind to see "posted 13 years ago" under the comment.


It's crazy to think that in a few decades we will be able to look back and see the random thoughts and musings of just about everyone we know. It's pretty terrifying, really.

I've thought about that..pretty cool window in to what we were..In a few years, if I look at this website, there's so much stuff that would just be..weird.

Stuff in the hugging thread, the relationship thread, and other threads I've started for example would be an insight in to my life, and things I'm going through now which would be quite weird..

Like, going through your childhood house's attic and finding an old diary, almost.

I like to think that in hundreds and perhaps thousands of years time, internet archeologists will comb the ruins of the ancient internet to learn more of our history and culture.

So we're kind of ****ed as far as representation goes.

Maybe not most of my stuff here, as I was a little bit older when I joined (though not much)

But I know that once I went through some of my older conversations on msn, which were saved on my pc..

Dude, that was embarassing.


Even though, with FB messenger, skype, whatsapp etc, I still kind of miss msn messenger.

I'm not sure whether it'd be cringey or awesome looking back at my past on the internet, if I could find anything. I've always been a pretty eloquent mother ****er on the internet, verbose to a fault, which I'm not sure if that's a good or a bad thing when looking back to say, teenage years.

Them: wuu2 we gtn blzd 2nite hmu

Me: I dare say that sounds like a jolly good lark, at which venue shall we be partaking in this social event?

I had to look up Irish whistle on youtube due to ignorance. They're pretty badass, pretty cutting sound aswell, I think I may have heard them in some Folk Metal before.

Also anything that improves your chances of shifting the beer consumed to money spent ratio has got to be good.

You'll probably be permabanned by then anyway.

Either that or a mod will close the thread just so you can't edit it.

This will be my fifth year on UG, which is a little weird. I sometimes delete my 2009-2011 posts when I see them (except the hysterical ones). I definitely don't want people to see those, or even a lot of my recent posts.

Over all though I take the 'amazing window into the past' approach to dealing with the internet. It's always interesting to see what people were thinking even just a few years ago. With this documentation, the history of our era will be written more accurately than ever before. It'll be interesting to see how all of this affects our collective perceptions on time, and I'm interested how the internet will affect what influential figures/musicians/etc. stand the test of time.

Naw I sit around with a bunch of retirees playing fiddles and bagpipes and entertain the pub-goers. Then I mosey my way over to the bar and get shitfaced at 4pm.

I was reading the FAQ on GameFAQs for Half Life, and near the end of it, the guy wrote something along the lines of "So Valve are going to be moving all of Half Life's multiplayer stuff over to this new thing called Steam." I looked and that thing was posted around 2003 or so. It just seemed really weird to see someone addressing Steam like it was a new thing. To me it's just always been there.

I have tabs printouts still from this site back from 1998. Back then UG was just the new kids compared to guitaretab and all the rest.

Not completely relevant, but those of you that haven't already seen it will find this interesting:

http://www2.warnerbros.com/spacejam/movie/jam.htm

Website for the movie 'Space Jam', which hasn't been updated at all since 1996. It really is like looking into a time machine. To think that was one of the biggest movie franchises attempt at making a website, and it was pretty much cutting edge at the time.
