Wasn't it something about getting the post number up? But now she's not here and the annual thing keeps it current and not full of spam. (Orders up: Spam, eggs, bacon and spam!)

Haven't heard anything from you in like two comics (back in when I was doing Battle of the Robofemoids?) Wow…

It was weird selfies, and i think i was drunk posting all the time…back when it was drunk duck. skoolmunkee chided me, and shortly after that we started dating the threads.

Well, what was it? 2011 when i left. The forums had a tough year that year. and since it was up and down, i decided to leave. Turns out, Drunk duck was the only thing holding my life together.
Went on a deployment sometime that year, leading to my actual divorce. (whew! we finally did it!!)
Got a (non-life threatening or even bad really) medical condition which disqualified me from my dream military job, lost my discipline, made some mistakes in the military, deployed several more times, spiraled further down, left active duty, got bored working civilian jobs, moved to california, joined part time military rescue, went unemployed for a year, then picked up a job at Tesla Motors.

I've been working there for over 2 years now. I was even in Queensland australia last year for the military!

life is pretty good these days. but there's a whole lot more in those gaps, but that's the TL;DR

Glad to hear you're still out there doing the thing - I often wonder what happened to you. I can't find Top Drawer Gamma though!

You were in Australia? That's groovy man!
I remember the dream job you were going for… Something about parachuting… Good to know about the Tesla job :)
Your wife was terrible for you. I'm glad that part of your life is over.
Welcome back man! I've often thought about you.

Welcome back Seventy2, yes, I remember all your forum posts from about nine years ago. Back then you were always being deployed and would always return home with more life stress than when you left.

Guess what I did a few weekends ago, Oz?

A few nights before Dita Von Teese's: Art of the Teese show in LA, I was able to find a ticket at a pretty nice price. I figure, she is one of my fashion/style icons and one of my role models, so I had to see her perform at least once. That Friday I took the early afternoon train to Los Angeles, had dinner in Little Tokyo and then I was on the South end of Broadway waiting in a line of young women in vintage dresses with red lipstick and long black curls. The audience was quite the spectacle.

I walked inside the restored, historic Ace Theater with its early Art Deco interior architecture. The main hall had floral wood cutouts, and I found my seat in the side left orchestra section, the red velvet upholstery cushions dating back to nearly sixty years sinces its last refitting, and I sat with high aniticipation for my first Burlesque show.

Dita came out and did her signature martini glass piece, then a contemporary dancer named Ginger Valentine recreated a classic Dita performamce with her own style. There was a Dancer from Australia who choreographed her dance number to a retro song that would have been played from a gramaphone. There was a M2F transgender that performed a very ethereal piece. A male matador that disguised himself like Zorro. There was a very plump plus size dancer riding on a stationary carousel horse.

In addition to the martini glass, did performed a number with the giant ostrich feathers, one where she lip synced and danced with two male dancers, she closed the night with a Western themed performance that ended with her on a pink upholstered, plush electronic bull where she rode it in slow motion to the heart-pulse beat of the DJ.

The entire show was magical, superb, and mesmerizing. It will definitely go down as one of the best experiences and well-spent evenings in recent history.
