Venice Beach

Was discussing Ellis’ endurance in the previous post.  She still loves to be out and about.  But, her walking endurance seems to be diminishing.

It could be just her mood.  She sure doesn’t look tired when eating (organic and nutritious N’ice) ice cream.

We planned to stay at Venice for only an hour.  I never really enjoyed Venice Beach but had a blast today.  Ellis took in all of it and ended up spending four hours at the beach.  I had planned to do some shopping at Abbot Kinney but we’re already really close to dinner time.  So, I decided to go straight to dinner in Santa Monica.  We took a small risk since Ellis is still a very picky eater with Indian food.  Considering she is still as picky as ever, she really did take it all in scarfing down almost everything we gave her.

While we were preparing to go out, Ellis decided to do some morning calisthenic.

    haha. that vimeo of little LS is absolutely adorable. had me smiling through the entire sequence. giggly pure love.

    oh yum, indian cuisine. now you have me craving for some.

    • http://etane.net/ etane

      haha i love that video. i need to start signing her up for dance class. her body takes over whenever she listens to music. i mean where did she learn those moves? she was dancing a lot at venice too. she stopped at just about every street performer and moved to the beat for 5-10 mins each. that’s mainly why we were at venice for so long.

      • Phonow

        good morning etane. lol. i am not sure if you have video counts on vimeo… but i watched that 3 or four times yesterday. it is pure joy. when you are not holding the camera… i hope you are dancing WITH Ellis. what fun!!

        • http://etane.net/ etane

          i can’t even count how many times i’ve watched it. received messages from friends who told me how much they enjoyed it too. maybe if i put it on youtube it might go viral and the view count can pay for her college.

          • Phonow

            haha. little Ellis will be a youtube star. :) vimeo is more classy…. maybe you should photoshop daddy’s head on Ellis on youtube. it will still go viral if you keep the giggles in there.

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            yah then she can do the talk show circuits, ellen, oprah… actually kinda scary sorta like those north korean children playing guitar… dont want her to grow up too fast.

          • Phonow

            eh, if the kids were white, the video would be the “amazingly talented kids playing guitar”. lol

            i agree, you do not want to be a stage mom. what i find scary are those beauty queen kids and especially their mothers.

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            just saw a documentary on netflix last week about those parents who spend all their money on training their kids to do well in sports. the dads sitting in the audience kept cussing the coaches and referees out and are eventually forbidden to spectate… and the numerous arguments between kids and parents when they can’t meet impossible expectations…..

          • Phonow

            one of my friends moved back to iowa years ago. her son was physically big n strong. there was an amazing amount of pressure put on her to allow him to be on the jr hs football team. she refused. thank gawd. her son is more skate/snow boarder personality. that is, you compete against yourself, rather than team vs team.

            she did a wonderful job being a single parent (his dad passed away when her son was a baby) — allowed him to grow into his own person. her son has graduated from college– and is just starting out on his own…. a fine young man.

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            football as a sport supposedly is dying since more and more schools are banning it at the high school level.

            can’t imagine this happening in mid west or inner city where sports is more than a way of life…

          • Phonow

            good. football is way too violent for kids to participate in. it is like the book hunger games- kids harm each other for the entertainment of adults. (like nba– there is too much glee on jl.net when they make jeremy bleed- smh)

            i am signing off– going to safeway to battle other old asian ladies for a really good sale on NY strip steak. wish me luck. am sharpening finger nails– maybe i can draw blood this time. hahaha.

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            beef is on sale? so it’s going to be a bfd blood bath….

          • Phonow

            LOL. aunty pho scored. 10 lbs of strip steak/$5/lb. pho is old enough to be ruthless, but young enough to scratch the eyes out of great grandmas.

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            lol you are medium .. not too rare not too well done. hubby going to chow down tonight. i just had too much for lunch.

          • Phonow

            cooked to a perfect 145-150 degrees. haha.

            stinky tofu for lunch?

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            red bogins… -= (

          • Phonow

            red bogins?? per urban dictionary: bogin. (noun) derogatory term used to describe
            an out of work Aboriginal person with questionable hygene and severe
            drug abuse and/or alchohol abuse.

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            that’s how i feel about red robins haha

          • Phonow

            lol. when recipes call for aubergines, i read it as 8 long aborigines…

            when jlin is out, jl.net goes through a total melt down. sigh. poor joe… he is a true fan, but way too mature for the place. he actually thinks he can advocate for civility.

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            yah at least when i start fights there it’s constructive haha

          • Phonow

            haha. i loved the tag team that you n llips had the other day. classic. poor trolls they did not have a chance. haha

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            thank joe for this link. http://www.borntorunthenumbers.com/2015/02/the-strange-and-badly-misunderstood.html

            he has so many good links such as when he links my articles haha

          • Phonow

            i will thank Joe for you. just to clarify: you do not mind me cutting & pasting the above– with your name attached?

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            haha no but it might get deleted really quickly

          • Phonow

            lol. when i push your blog on jl.net… i always wonder if jl.mod’s hand is wavering over the ban button. ;)

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            lol you’ve done that? so far only kp/llips had dropped in to say hi.

          • Phonow

            lol. yep– mostly llips & have faith– i know they liked you a lot. have faith does not want to be a “stalker”– so declined to come over. kp came by on his own. :)

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            have faith no likey me enough to stalk = (

            it’s ok i got you and lips stalking me now. you two share the same ip?

          • Phonow

            lol. i am so glad llips comes over. love her wit n intelligence. aunty pho just sits back n watches the repartee.

            (whisper) yes, we are the same person. cough cough.

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            you cannot escape the kgb nsa!

          • Phonow

            i remember laughing with chris– i was convincing him you were nsa– when you mentioned you were a kuchinch fan. told him that… okay, there are probably three asians in the u.s. who supported kuchinich…. what are the chances that two of them met on a basketball forum….Preeeetttyyyy fishy i would say…..

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            if i must, i can show you proof that i donated to kucinich when he last ran for president like.. 8 yrs ago? = P but yah hard fo find two people who support kucinich anywhere.

          • Phonow

            if llips, chris, and i agree you are secret service… well…. your cover is blown. sorry. i guess they will have to transfer you to a desk job.

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            yah just like how u guys blew my cover at jl haha… now i have to do a valerie plame and sit in a cube.. wait i already do that.

          • Phonow

            i hated lying to dockers– pretending that i did not know it was you. :( he’s my roo buddy. lol.

            be grateful you have a cube. my old boss made us sit in a more “open” environment… so we could “communicate” with only low partitions separating us. uggggghhhh.

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            wut’s a roo?

            that’s how i was at a previous job. the conservative christian girl sitting behind me kept reporting me to my boss saying i am web surfing. boss said, no, he’s researching. haha

          • Phonow

            kangaroo. dockers’s avatar.

            gawd damn conservative xians. your boss pretty much told her to mind her own business. good.

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            well i am starting me weekend now. see yah!

          • Phonow

            okay, message for you from jl.net. kpkafle:

            Kpkafle:Tell etane to set up a new user id using another email address. Tell him he is missed around here.

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            haha i saw that. but i did what he said and got banned again = (

          • Phonow

            try again!!! we miss you there. i can’t believe mod banned you again. loc vu was forgiven. you just have to take whatever meds loc vu is taking, and you’ll be fine. haha

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            most people there now realize who the trolls are. so the troll hunter’s job is done = P. other than that i waste too much time there before. especially when some people there can’t handle the banter!

          • Phonow

            oh tay. but you are disappointing your fans. :(

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            that WAS one fun day though when i got to debate the trolls then the rest of the forum turned on them… and now the trolls are in full friend making mode and afraid to say anything bad about lin.

          • Phonow

            LOL! it was like jesus descending from the heavens. the trolls were sorely afraid… and jl fans renewed their faith.

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            i went to bed… next morning i was reading posts from 2am and find kh duking it out with the trolls.. he was going spastic… so funny!

          • Phonow

            haha. you gave KH a reason to live again. all hail etane! blessed savior.

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            yah i will create another sn in 6months… too much fun haha

          • Phonow

            hahaha. will joyously await the return of the Savior. (bows head in prayer).

  • Llips don’t lie

    Is that Au Revoir Simone?
    never heard that one before…
    Ellis has better “endurance” than me for Indian
    Love it but it gives me the s__ sometimes (hope u are not eating, haha)

    • et_morh

      kisses, it’s a band i found in paris but turns out they are from silverlake about 1 hr from me.

      might not be the type of cuisine but the establishment’s cleaniness…

      • Llips don’t lie

        I thought it was that
        Till I ate curry at home
        Same consequence
        I suspect one or more of the spices could be having
        A laxative effect on me

  • http://etane.net/ etane

    interesting discussion about monkeys.

    • Llips don’t lie

      Cousins just made himself persona non grata in Asia
      What a ‘tard
      LoLOL

      • http://etane.net/ etane

        it probably was never about the monkey thought. probably afraid black history month won’t get the month long recognition since lunar day is day 1 of black history month thus effectively cutting it short. but, yah, it probably has something to do with monkeys. probably has more to do with the figurative distance blacks have to travel to get their own month and cousins didn’t want that to be taken away.

        “”I walk into the building and DeMarcus Cousins calls me over to an
        animated discussion he’s having with Kings operations people,” he wrote.
        “He ask me, ‘Olskool, what you think about this T Shirt? Told him a
        little insensitive on 1st day of Black History Month’. They pulled the
        shirts…”

  • Llips don’t lie

    To me, there are a few things ” troublesome ” about his reaction
    Notice the word used is “insensitive ” someone got his feelings hurt.
    Like people should know not to put monkey and black people together ( because what would people think of monkeys and blacks? ?)
    Don’t be acting like black history is some extraordinary time with nothing else in the world happening
    Like others said cny is 1000 s of years old
    Being linked in such a way is nice and goodwill to all races
    But noooh, someone goes and feels sensitive about a purple monkey

    • http://etane.net/ etane

      it’s not about the monkey really. it’s about celebrating x on the first day of y. and, frankly, king’s PR could have handled this much better. the purple monkey is just icing on the cake. i am more alarmed about the comments i’ve read on various sites regarding this. the privileged class is having a field day at the expense of the “monkeys”.

      • Llips don’t lie

        I didn’t read the report you pulled the quote from
        Guess I see it differently
        Since Bhm is month long
        I don’t see any slight
        It’s not bh day
        Find it petty and ridiculous

        But I do agree that kings pr could have handled this better

        On jlin net that iam guy is having a field day
        And we both know how he feels about bk ppl

        • http://etane.net/ etane

          i’d give benefit of the doubt to cousins and his kind. the culture here in the us is very divisive with the mulsim ban, anti immigrants and anti affirmative action/reverse discrimination claims not to mention imbalance of blacks/latinos in jail or in poverty while the ruling class is milking this. if you’re from the disadvantaged class here in the US, you’d be very sensitive too.

          and, the king’s could’ve made it cny shirt day on the next home game. no biggy.

          • Llips don’t lie

            Cuz is not every bk man
            He’s a famous multi milionaire playing a globally popular game
            Some resentment of his whining would be from this fact

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            i don’t suppose he only represents himself. it’s not black cousins day. conversely, if cousins was a poor nobody, nothing he says will ever be heard. so damned if he’s famous, damned if he’s not.

          • Llips don’t lie

            Guess I’m not seeing this in the context that you are
            Looking at the bigger picture of it being representative of a bk issue
            I see it as a powerful player who holds sway over fo decisions
            Not as someone from a disadvantaged group
            Whose experience he only knows of second hand

            I

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            i haven’t researched cousins but i don’t think he was born with a silverspoon in his mouth like chris webber was.

            it’s not like cousins tried to fire his coach for being non-african american like lebron allegedly did in miami and perhaps in cleveland.

            http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2611328-miami-heat-minority-owner-claims-lebron-james-wanted-erik-spoelstra-fired

          • Phonow

            this article says cousins was brought up in a blue collar neighborhood. mom was a nurse, no mention of father. http://www.sportingnews.com/nba-news/1222474-demarcus-cousins-peeling-back-the-layers-kings-big-man-is-laid-back-and-loveable

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            has your opinion about cousins changed at all after reading that?

            “During his final two seasons after transferring to LeFlore High School, many opposing coaches encouraged their teams to punish him physically, harping on his reputation as a hot head that would eventually lose his cool.

            “When the scouting report says simply, ‘Beat up the kid’, that’s not basketball,” said DeMarcus. “We’re not talking about double or triple teams. So, of course I’m gonna be mad when that stuff happens. Sometimes I handled it well, sometimes I didn’t.””

            sounds like the nba’s playbook on lin down to a T.

          • Phonow

            on jl.net i wrote: true. lol. cousins should have used this incident to learn about
            chinese culture & celebrations. he is way too paranoid. *not
            everything is racist.*

            the article does not change my opinion. i think that cousins should have picked another fight. to claim that celebrating cny is insensitive, it dilutes the message that black lives matter. it is similar to aoki fighting silverman re “i love chinks.” aoki had a weak argument as does cousins.

            to give cousins a break, i think that the media is running wild w/his comment. and, as you mentioned above, the privileged class is having a field day.

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            lol i think we could agree that cousins is an over sensitive guy. unfortunately, basketball is his life not social science. he grew up in mobile alabama where civil rights pretty much started. so that’s a big part of who he is. he didn’t grow up in nyc or sf where multiculturalism is celebrated much. so, taking who cousins is in terms of his age, where he’s from and what he knows, he’s not a bad guy who did a bad thing.

            and, if there’s an aoki out there, it’s the people who are making it into a bigger deal than it actually is. and, we know who they are. cousin’s is the silverman in this situation than anything else as cousin’s comments were taken out of context as was silverman’s joke.

          • Phonow

            good point about alabama being the place where civil rights started. cousins seems to be a good guy–even though he looks like a meanie. lol. judging a book by it’s cover.

            i noticed that Llips is plugging your site on jl.inet. invited dockers over. let’s see if he shows up. haha now you have two of us working for you.

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            cousin’s a nice guy. he wouldn’t hurt a soul:

            you two don’t work too hard. i am running out of bandwidth trying to contain all the traffic coming to this site haha.

          • Phonow

            lol. bev goes out of his way to injure players. he deserves that “pat” on his stomach.

            when the site slows down, does that mean you are out of bandwidth? or… does bandwidth mean the amount of space that your entire site takes up? or…..?

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            haha no bandwidth is unlimited. i was joking bout that. dunno why disqus has problems after the thread gets long. doesn’t seem to be a problem on jl.

          • Phonow

            haha. shows you how much i know about computers. but then again, i remember when a 10 mb floppy disk was considered “amazing.” hahaha.

            oh, and i also argued w/my bf at the time that it would be impossible to hold an entire encyclopedia in a “computer” because it would be too expensive. hahaha

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            sounds eerily similar to something bill gate said years ago:

            http://www.computerworld.com/article/2534312/operating-systems/the–640k–quote-won-t-go-away—-but-did-gates-really-say-it-.html

            well disqus i snot lagging right now. when it is lagging, i will try a to change a few settings to see whether that fixes things. risk is all the comments disappear? who knows.

          • Phonow

            ah, gates denies ever saying that. lol. i believe him. anyone who believes in computers would not say that it has a limit.

            ah, mo in law flying back to MN today. no more playing tour guide. she & sisters are very nice– but after a while, i just want to go back to normal. lol. will be flying out to big island mid feb. house needs a new roof. sigh. not looking forward to being there. little or no computer access. cold turkey.

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            i am looking forwards to when i could go cold turkey. but work is too boring without the internet. heck.. i need it for research.

            actually it wouldn’t surprise me if gates actually said that at one time or another. he’s more of a marketing person than a computer guy. he only has like 3 patents to his name. maybe he was supporting one platform over another… so had to say whatever to support his product.

          • Phonow

            gosh. i love the internet. computer = magic. wish i had it when i was a student. we wrote papers on typewriters and research was done with a card catalog. all my $ went into photocopy machines lol. No cut n paste. no nothing. first world problems. haha

            like your boss said “etane is doing research” lol. you have the smart man syndrome — most work is too boring. you probably turn out a high quality product quickly, and have too much time on your hands.

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            yes i got another ec telling me that i don’t do any work haha… it seems like a theme for those who follow koch.

            i was an awful typer. way too many typos to type out papers to turn in. that is until i got one of these bad boys…

            http://i.ebayimg.com/00/s/MTIwMFgxNjAw/z/B0kAAOSwX~dWokye/$_35.JPG?set_id=880000500F

          • Phonow

            omg. i had one of those too. iirc, i could type 300 characters??? or was it i could read 300 characters on that little screen. i did not own it for long. haha someone stole it from me.

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            i could type out 3 lines of text and edit before i print it. and, i could save at least a few papers onto a single diskette. i think it was 1mb per disk? not sure. i have no idea where mine went to… come to think of it… probably threw it away.

          • Phonow

            i wish & pray that whoever stole it from me still is using it. hahaha. it was such a pain. horrible font– green background. hard to maneuver.

            man why do you always end up working with ecs? no one likes a snitch. there is always one brown noser in every group. they are people who are not too bright, but knows how to “play the game.”

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            i don’t know of that many but there is one in my group and we end up talking about poltics sometimes and he’s grown to hate me. he already got this other guy in our group fired. he found another job thankfully. he wasn’t happy here anyways.

          • Phonow

            crap. sounds like a nightmare workmate. i bet you all had a party AFTER he left.

            one thing i like about chris or my repug ex– they are able to converse about politics without making it personal. people who are not as bright (or emotionally secure) get angry.

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            oh i meant the guy who got another job is the guy who got fired…

            and probably easier for you to talk about politics than it is for me. i am more confrontational than u are.

          • Phonow

            oh darn. the asshole is still around. damn.

            you are more confrontational then me? (hand to forehead) i just can’t imagine. ;)

        kh does a threesome.

        • http://etane.net/ etane

          you flatter him

          • Phonow

            ok. more real: kh enjoyed watching the butt slap vine until he was satisfied.

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            his eyes saw something. his mind wandered somewhere else.

          • Phonow

            ya know, most straight guys’ minds would not wander in that direction. hmmm

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            most straight guys don’t share their interracial “conquests” on the forum.

          • Phonow

            some do– the immature ones.

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            yah strangely those that say about others “you think you can score with white girls if jlin does well” says more about themselves.

          • Phonow

            people unknowingly reveal a lot about themselves when they post. kh being case study #1.

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            or “you should stop being an analyst and be a silicon valley start up”

  • http://etane.net/ etane

    you guys should post that obama/curry thing at the portal.

    • Phonow

      imho, et morh should do the nasty at portal. ;)

      • http://etane.net/ etane

        who is that and why did he link my site on jl.net?

        • Phonow

          et morh is a secret admirer of you.

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            i heard he’s banned. good riddance.

          • Phonow

            jlmod runs a tight ship, and never forgives, never forgets. haha

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            et was banned a long time ago and he emailed mod asking why he was banned. mod replied although et didn’t do anything wrong, he taunted others to do wrong things.

          • Phonow

            i remember you taunting the mod. to me, that was the reason why you were banned. not the pc reason jl.mod gave you.

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            oh this was before… at that point et knew mod was out to get him anyways. pronia

          • Phonow

            oh well. wish you could come back. the forum gets pretty boring w/o you.

            nowadays everybody talks about basketball. smh.

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            ‘You’ve been unblocked but please watch the taunting.’ just found what kelbrett replied to me when i was banned 2 yrs ago…

            yah the monkey and butt conversations seem lively.

          • Phonow

            my god, you keep everything. lol.

            so, you were banned two years ago, then banned again last year? my goodness.

            i want to see you go on portal–to see how long you last. haha.

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            you can go there and pretend to be me and see how long you last.

            and it’s easy to find old emails on gmail.

          • Phonow

            no, you are too quick. llips is, to paraphrase dockers, the female version of you. hint hint llips.

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            yah llips should go to portal and pretend to be me and see how fast she’s banned.

          • Phonow

            old time portal people are becoming disenchanted with the portal. “smart” trolls are messing up the place, and psalm is letting them run free. so, people like “john Focker” (i forget his jl.net name– an old time poster)– is waving bye bye until psalm cleans up his site.

            hahaha.

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            i thought portal has 20 mods who ban 10 people a day. how could they not “clean” the place up?

          • Phonow

            lol. here is a post about sws94, lin win, & tom. i copied it because i knew it was going to be deleted. i have no idea why they allow lin win & tom to stay. i think that psalm loosened the rules.

            ghost in 2 minutes
            Jlin is at least twice the player and 1000 times the
            man Kemba Walker is. And yet, JLin is paid minimum wage to do
            the dangerous, dirty work solely for the glorification and
            enrichment of Kemba. That doesn’t seem fair does it? The NBA is
            motivated purely by greed with not even an ounce of integrity.

            But that shouldn’t really surprise us. Just look at this JLin
            fan site. It’s supposed to be the “positive” site but it too is
            motivated purely by making money from advertising. Do we try to
            be supportive and seek the truth about JLin’s circumstances?
            Nope. As long as you remain “polite” you can trash Lin as much
            as you like. Take sws94 for example. She has stated clearly and
            on countless occasions that Lin is not a PG and should not start
            at any position. Why?

            1) JLin’s handles are too shaky to be starting PG

            2) He’s not a good shooter

            3) He defers too much

            4) He makes bad decisions

            5) He’s not a leader.

            I’m pretty sure sws94 would not deny any of this but if
            necessary you can check her history. Dozens of very long posts
            stating these “facts” and detailing why in each case. True Lin
            fans are disgusted by her negative propaganda but are cowed into
            accepting her abundant comments. Why? Mods seem to think content
            and controversy will drum up traffic. They don’t realize that
            for real fans it’s no longer fun to read this blog.

            Take ‘Lin Win’ as another example. He is clearly a troll. He
            has directly attacked mods. But does he get banned? Of course
            not. Lin Win is not simply a troll, he is a mole. He wants to
            establish himself as a Lin fan by posting on this site so that
            when he posts outrageous stuff on team fan sites, he causes even
            more damage. Lin Win has argued persistently and obnoxiously on
            Hornets fan sites that Lin should start over Kemba while
            pretending to be a Lin fan. But on this site he usually argues
            the opposite. He must be quite disturbed and he’s a virulent Lin
            hater but he’s still welcome here.

            And finally we have ‘Tom’ who used to be ‘Jeremy’ who used to
            be ‘Frank’. Tom is just a mean old man without a shred of
            decency but sws94 thinks he’s terrific so he proudly posts here
            as well.

            If JLin were to become super successful again, traffic to this
            site would skyrocket and the money would flow in. But in the
            meantime, let’s drum up traffic with trolls…as long as they’re
            polite!

            (Cut and paste this to another app asap as it will soon be
            deleted!)

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            why delete it? haha… i like this ghost guy. he’s not fooled by the trolls.

            you should create a fake sn, go on portal, donate $5, change your avatar to lgbt flag then post that obama/curry tweet on portal and see what happens.

          • Phonow

            haha. the writing style is similar to Jerimiah (the grey), who was banned from portal. lol. i copied john fockers post too. (okay okay, i hate the portal lol)

            Apologies in advance for being real blunt here, but whatever happened to:

            Our #1 Vision is “Positively Bringing Together JLin Fans”

            Build a community to enjoy interaction and positive discussion among
            Jeremy Lin fans

            Shut me down if you’d like, but this type of quarreling is the result of
            being generous and kind and allowing constant Lin mockery to go
            unchecked over extended period of time. I have no issue shutting up, but
            I’m hardly the only member here who’d like to see “fans” like these put
            in check. If anything this is why this sanctuary was set up, and why
            many of us left the old turf behind. It’d be truly sad to see this place
            slowly sink into Old Turf 2.0.

            Checking out.

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            c’ya

            there was a jeremiah at jl who i thought was a troll too. sometimes i thought whether he and bbm is the same. their style is similar.

            llips lastnight posted there’s too many trolls. sws94 replied “who”. later that comment was removed.

          • Phonow

            k.bye. trolls tolls everywhere, but i do love seeing portal melt down. ;)

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            bai, wish someone would crack down on hollywood on jl now. go do.

          • Phonow

            testing. no it is not lagging today.

          • Llips don’t lie

            Haha
            When was this? Never saw it
            Was it deleted?
            Bet no mod replied

          • Phonow

            LOL. that is because it was deleted almost immediately. portal is very gestapo– they clean up the offender AND the replies leading up to the banning. such a clean website. :)

          • Llips don’t lie

            But they let that lin win guy run free
            This is totally don’t get
            He must be bringing a huge spike in business
            Real ahole

          • Phonow

            it does not make sense. i know it was maknusia that got on grover chang and focker’s case, he (she?) is the most anal of the mods.

            & god knows why lin win gets away w/things scott free. very uneven moderation.

          • Llips don’t lie

            It’s a he
            Very uptight
            But he’s like you know, experienced mod and all
            He said it before
            He’s nice but very controlling

            Lin win case is very very odd
            Rude about lin and his fans
            Shud have been automatic ban

          • Phonow

            hmm, i wonder if lin win made a big contribution to the site??? that would explain why they do not ban him.

            yeah, at least maknusia comes down hard on everybody (even a long time poster like john focker).

            i miss not having joyce watson as a mod. she psychs out on everybody– and even told KHuang to beat it. psalm emailed kh to come back home. lol

          • Llips don’t lie

            Oh my you could be right! !!

            You’re cia too
            Ha

          • Phonow

            haha. shhhh. don’t tell etane.

          • Llips don’t lie

            There’s no other reason
            That guy feels very comfortable to post
            And insult others especially dot
            Lol

          • Phonow

            he has this demon inside of him that just can’t be controlled. which is why we like him.

          • Llips don’t lie

            I wish I feel less repulsed
            But I do get affected by the nasties, especially when they bully others
            Gotten better at minding my own business
            some just go looking to get insulted
            You know who

          • Phonow

            i notice that denzel has not come back. haha. i like denzel, but he really could not let it go (like a lot of people there).

          • Llips don’t lie

            Jw is back and crowing about how she feels charlotte are “feeling lin”
            Lol
            Soooo after the fact and stating the obvious

          • Phonow

            haha. i am just sooooo happy joyce is there & not on jl.net. a real know-it-all. i wish reagan would go there & stay there too. damn. i wish i was a mod on jl.net. i would ban people right n left. & sometimes randomly. haha

          • Llips don’t lie

            Haha
            I once got a reply back from the mod
            He claims family and work commitments
            He’s a high powered attorney if I’m not wrong
            Honestly they could have sold the site and made a tidy sum
            Offers were made
            But that place is just so. …annoying without at least 1 mod

          • Phonow

            eh, when i look at portal’s problems with many mods, i can see why jl.net wants to keep control over their website. portal mods enforce the site haphazardly. they also allow certain posters to get away w/murder.

            and, jl.net has always taken action in a reasonable amount of time whenever i have emailed them about trolls. i usually copy & paste the objectionable post/s & email.

          • Llips don’t lie

            Ooh ooh let’s talk about the donation
            No webA this year but brent yen
            Something tells me he’s now. ….one of the converted
            Oh dear

          • Phonow

            what is webA?

            poor brent. i always loved him. mellow & funny. he should keep his $ for his adorable kids.

          • Llips don’t lie

            Web attorney
            He made a big noise last year about it

          • Phonow

            oh duh. webbie. yeah, he made a big noise last year, but i think he thought it was going to be a one time deal. lol. he probably realized that psalm was using the fund-raising for his own glorification. haha

            you have to admit, brent & others on the site were pressured heavily to donate. i mean, people were calling out people like linmad (is that his name? the nuttiest lin poster guy) to donate. i mean, calling out people by name is just uncalled for.

          • Llips don’t lie

            Charles will have a field day
            Notice he’s back

          • Phonow

            Charles the shrink? haha. he agitates posters just to analyze their responses. probably wants to write an article for Psychology Today. ;)

          • Llips don’t lie

            You wonder right?
            Someone got used to seeing his own posts highlighted by himself and like more people to read them
            Front and center on the check giving photo
            No more ‘shy’

            Enjoys the free “coffee money” (what he calls donations to the site ) too

          • Phonow

            not only that, but psalm asked posters to click on the ads on the site– to make more $. he posted that *after* ghost’s post was deleted. haha. looks like ghost hit a sore spot.

          • Llips don’t lie

            All about the Benjamins to him
            True colors

            And i laughed hard at those who bitched about jnet ads
            Lol

          • Phonow

            i hate hypocrisy more than anything. portal is becoming everything that they hated on jl.net– and worst– because it is infested with self righteous christians.

            John Lee

          • Phonow

            hahaha. that right! john lee. he is still upset that people (occu?) laughed at him for posting the Taiwan tweet. lol. he is a good guy. too bad he went back. lol.

          • Llips don’t lie

            That was pretty lame
            Guess he wanted to appear useful
            Yeah I é liked him when he was at the jnet

          • Llips don’t lie

            I’d burn that Adele and Dorothy on two separate stakes
            Utterly insane moonies

            that is wasteful. use one stake.

            which is why they only speak about aunty in whispers and hisses.

          • Llips don’t lie

            Ah guess you knew
            But shocked me

          • Phonow

            no, i did not know. but in any asian family, there will be buddhists and christians, and heaven forbid, the atheist nephew. lol

          • Llips don’t lie

            Absolutely
            But being a nun is pretty ” eztreme”
            At least to me heh

          • Phonow

            yeah, being a nun is extreme, but so is being evangelicals. the “god” gene must run in the family.

          • Llips don’t lie

            Mum side were Christians all the way from great grandpa

          • Llips don’t lie

            Her being Buddhist is like poetic justice
            Lol

          • Phonow

            lol! i wonder what their relationship is like– does jlin’s family try to convert her, and vice versa?

          • Llips don’t lie

            Exactly
            Dad is very close to her
            Tw visits were in the early days to visit her
            some temple in obscure tw

            I mean everyone thinks the whole family is so hard core Christian
            And here you have an individual istic aunt
            I like her already

          • Phonow

            haha. we always love the mavericks. :) glad that daddy lin is mellow enough to accept the wayward aunty. mama lin strikes me as more controlling.

          • Llips don’t lie

            Daddy is tender hearted
            Sounds familiar? Always feel that lin is more like him

            Mum is go getter sort
            Fierce but nice

          • Phonow

            did you ever watch the 60 minute tv show where they interviewed lin & his parents? mom said her role was the enforcer, and dad was for fun.

            haha mama lin only irritates me when she gets on lin’s back about christian beliefs.

          • Llips don’t lie

            I did, until the point when she started talking over the dad
            Felt so embarrassed for him
            Yes, his English speaking is garbled
            But hers is not much better
            Did 60 min become 35mins?
            I ol

            They are truly wonderful people
            And supported lin when no one did
            His success is owed to them rather than the Lord

            hubbie likes korean more than i do. i love korean side dishes though.

            does your family go all out for lunar new year? vietnamese mama san reminded me it is not chinese new year lol, it is Lunar New Year.

            what’s the diff between chinese new year and lunar new year? or, is it chinese new year is based on the lunar calendar? dunno. or are they the same thing and viet just don’t want to call it chinese new year since they are not chinese?

            we usually eat together during lunar but i am still avoiding them for now.

          • Phonow

            no difference. lol. both viet & chinese celebrate on same day. i guess viets rather call it lunar since they are not chinese. i read somewhere that only americans call it chinese new year. don’t know if that’s true. in hawaii, we celebrate it as CNY. ” kung hee fat choy” shows up everywhere– esp in supermarket ads. lol.

            i have never been good at playing the “family” game. society demands that a person *must* do this or that. to me, you have your own family unit now. & if avoiding a family gathering, means avoiding pain, then go for it.

            well it only makes sense that people in china don’t call it chinese new years. do people in america call it american new years? people here just need to call it something else so as to not confuse january 1st with some foreign countries’ new year.

            haha yes i am avoiding pain and boredom and self incrimination. the whole 9 yards.

            eh, in my family, we called Jan. 1st japanese new years. to me, it just my parents way of making the kids clean the house, top to bottom. actually, we did the whole 9 yards–symbolic foods, good luck paper & offerings, fireworks, etc. now, as an adult, once every three years or so, i turn japanese and put out some good luck symbols. lol.

            haha. aunty pho will back you up when the family disowns you. ;) been there, done that.

            who wants to adopt a puppy (40 years removed) ?

            my family isn’t so traditional. no one in our family actually likes doing anything together. but mom has nothing to do during holidays since her gambling buddies are with their families, so we’re invited to do stuff with her. it’s the only time she’s free. all we do is eat tho. no good luck charms. no traditional anything.

          • Phonow

            lol. you are one of a kind etane. damn needed you in my family. then i would not be the only black sheep. haha

            interesting that your family does not do the traditional stuff. maybe it is a hawaii thing– sociologist study hawaii japanese because we held on to old traditions. japan japanese have moved on.

            yah sorta like those japanese soldiers still hiding in caves and didn’t know ww2 was over 50 yrs ago. or them chinese people in chinatown are more traditional than chinese people in china.

            yah i need more black sheeps in my family too. too many narcissistic technocrats in mine.

          • Phonow

            haha. those soldiers are japanese heroes. banzai! i sa-rut you my ferrow countrymen. lol

            our chinatown is in full swing right now. we went down for some of the festivities & great dim sum. yum.

            well, you have a great time with your beautiful family for CNY. i have the feeling that it will be your best celebration ever! pure joy.

          • http://etane.net/ etane

            pure joy? sounds like a good name for a cult.

          • Phonow
