Fair description of real life.

Just substitute "BCBers" with "people".

There you go.
The invisible and the non-existing very much look alike.

Now that really interests me. And I overheard a couple of suits on the train the other day talking about just that. They were recruiting.


I've looked on Facebook to see what junior recruits profiles look like. if they're too stupid to not have a photo of them doing bong hits made private, then I would think twice about hiring them.

I know it's their own personal business, but at a certain age you don't want to put that shit out there for the world to see.

The last fucking people on earth I want to hang out with on Facebook are BCBers, Now Playing excepted.

That came out more harsh than I meant. What I meant was BCB is for talking to BCB folks. I have other friends I connect with on Facebook. I'm kinda picky about BCB people on Facebook.

Can I have that baloney sandwich now?

I used to post 99% of the albums I played in BCB's Now Playing but it got down to me and Tom Waits for No One and that's about it.

I like Facebook's Now Playing. A lot of it's the same people - me and Machuki, but there's some non BCBers that post interesting stuff.

And they can comment or like selections. I like that added feature.

Yeah, but Facebook “Now Playing” is so ‘wham bam, thank you m’am’.
On BCB ‘YOUR FAVORITE ALBUM KILLED MY DOG, MIster.’

Compared to the 10 or 12 people who post here almost every day?

I don't know if you want to go there. I don't have to get off of Facebook because someone has been an asshole.

I've had to do it twice in the last month on here. And they haven't even been jerks to me.

Just jerks.

And I try to avoid those sometimes.

I find FB, and all social media for that matter, massively over-rated as interactive and fun places. Of course you can learn some interesting stuff, keep in touch with people, be creative in different ways, etc. But they can also become extreme time-wasting exercises, and bring out some of people's most shallow and neurotic traits. I tend to spend as little of my precious free time on there as possible, just a 10-minute a day cruise. BCB is better.
