Those were both great @laughingsquid anniversary parties. 2002 at The Odeon and 2005 at Varnish. (the latter was a SF party if the decade). And I met @scottbeale for the first time at the 2002 party. I had been a laughingsquid.net hosting customer and always wanted to meet him. Been pretty good friends almost ever since #tbt

“We are living in a culture entirely hypnotized by the illusion of time, in which the so-called present moment is felt as nothing but an infinitesimal hairline between an all-powerfully causative past and an absorbingly important future. We have no present. Our consciousness is almost completely preoccupied with memory and expectation. We do not realize that there never was, is, nor will be any other experience than present experience. We are therefore out of touch with reality. We confuse the world as talked about, described, and measured with the world which actually is. We are sick with a fascination for the useful tools of names and numbers, of symbols, signs, conceptions and ideas.”
-Alan Watts
