    Chrono is eating clean, doing yoga and buying $25 bottles of wine.
    Deej moves back to Chicago.
    Cinnamon Pooter spent $450 on a sweater that doesn’t fit him and is pilled right off the rack.
    Ned, Zappo, Sausage and Paves had a couple karaoke nights.
    Nick got a vasectomy.
    Duff is going to tweet about his latest book.
    Avec joined a cult, then left it.

    Everybody is probably clinically depressed even though it’s is readily apparent that we are all crushing it.

    Oh now I remember: nobody can score Radiohead tickets and it’s a real bummer.
    Wrestling Punk 64 is a 24 year old.
    I’ve started combing my hair to the other side and it’s really working out for me.
    Undo and Jesus Jones are not happy about Trump AT ALL.
    Mitchell was in a commercial.

    Thanks Reuben.

    Really the only surprise is the Chrono update and that's awesome to hear.

    Put me in the crushing it category, here are some highlights from the past few years:

    Sold our house in Logan Square and moved to Independence Park.
    Keeping up with phixed jr's piano lessons three years in.
    Hiked to Phantom Ranch in the Grand Canyon.
    Got jr into professional wrestling.
    Picked up rock climbing.
    Went to Iceland and backpacked the Laugavegur trail with the Mrs for our 10 year anniversary.
    Deleted Facebook and Snapchat accounts.
    Started meditating daily.
    Sold our house in Independence Park as the market there went insane and our house was too big for us anyways.
    Currently renting the top floor of a mansion in West Walker and enjoying the first time in seven years where things like yard work and snow shoveling is not required.
    Hiked to Havasu Falls in the Grand Canyon.
    And, just recently, decided to see the Fast & Furious films for the first time in my life. 4 down, 4 to go.

    Almost all of these things were driven by the Mrs and I was along for the ride. Looking back, it's been a pretty transformative period for the family.

    That said, there's plenty of shit and ennui day to day. I ran only three times in 2017. I've lost touch with a ton of friends I used to be close with. Short term memory is as bad as it has ever been. Plenty of extended family drama to deal with and so on. But yeah, listing all the good stuff puts the shit in perspective.

    BTW, I had totally forgotten about this place until that email landed in my inbox the other day. Whoever's idea it was to send it howyadoin

    Is the JDFF still up and running? Any news from over there that might be of interest?

    how old is phixed jr?

    mitchell and i both have little ones now.

    the latter half of the above is why i've also not been running. signed up for a 5k in april tho!

    JDFF died its most recent, and perhaps final, death within the last month or so, i believe.

    yeah, congrats you two. parenthood is awesome Smile

    little phixed turns 8 next month. kinda nuts how quickly that happens.

    current obsessions are mario odyssey, nerf guns, star wars, wwe, climbing, and math.

    here's the parental text conversation that happens when your kid asks to go to math camp this summer: "wow, that's awesome. what a good jew-asian. how the fuck did he hear about math camp? (five minutes later) holy shit, a week of math camp costs more than a summer of park district summer camp. let's see if he keeps asking about it."

    Is the rave archive still online? I don't remember the url for it.

    I had years to properly check it out but I was lazy and not curious enough and took it for granted. Now I'm looking for it and can't find it.

    It is but only for zines. The 1000+ mixtape files are in the hands of a couple different groups of people who want to bring them back online but I'm not sure what the status is of those projects.

    That feels like a pretty logical conclusion for that board.

    What happened to some of the regulars like Yancy/Damo/Deej/Raj etc?

    I saw a tweet from Yancy suggesting he's got an infant now too? He did once trick us into thinking he won like $600,000 from McDonald's Monopoly before though so who knows.

    Raj pops in from time to time. I think that Damo vanished not too long after this new board was set up. Didn't he?

    Jesus Jones failed to mention that he's a pretty major elite-ass recording artist, now.  Dude is hot fire.
