Hey everyone! 30 years ago today, I was born at a very young age. and through a combination of luck and survival instict, i made it this far!

and what better way of honoring it than by finding a Cursed VHS tape at goodwill! I'll have pictures down below for you to look at.

It was a single black sleeve with a white ghost like picture physically painted on it. and inside was a very cursed looking rubber pig face, with japanese on the side, and a big label that said "JANICE.CLICK" on it.

now i don't have a VHS player, so i had no way of watching it...

BUT

I found it on Youtube! (embed video)

it's called "PIGMAN" and it's a found footage style video about 2 guys looking for the Pigman near Hartsburg, MO. It's super amateur and has a lot of weird effects and decisions. honestly i found it kinda funny.

The channel is called "JANICE.CLICK" and he has tons of videos, mostly small found footage horror vids. But he also has a couple longer ones that i enjoy for WILDLY different reasons.

(CW: light nudity (see some guys butt, and implied fluid), heavy themes?)

"McMurderer"
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E_fBAkPaBEg

this one is pretty insane and i was laughing at it's pure absurdity. It also has probably one of the funniest scenes i have ever seen which caught me out of left field. and it also had a weird twist that is just plain nuts!


"They Are Not Human"
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nrYtIGBCM9I

this one actually is really good. it still has the "home movie" charm, but he actually made a very cohesive story that is well told through the cinematography and use of over exposure of the camera set against the black dressed characters. it looks like a movie version of a black metal album cover. I unironically say this one is great!

i dunno, i think it maybe haunted

like, doesn't it make sense? a thriftstore video that is more or less unrecognizeable to most people, and on it is strange and horrifying things. then you get a call and it's just squealing of pigs as they come and eat your soul!

I'm glad that today I was able to help my younger sister a ton with these college assignments. Was also nice to eat stuff with her just to relax, we watched an episode of 'The Simpsons' and talked. I also got my hair cut earlier and like what I got quite a lot. Post-hospital life really hasn't been too bad, honestly. Just have to cut through the anxiety about a lot.

it's more general long term stuff, and it is partially my fault for jumping onto certain social media's and stuff. but i'd say probably fear of political unrest and stuff has been kind of prevalent. I don't want to get into details (mainly cause i don't want to start a tizy in my thread) but there is just so so much. compound that with climate change and it just is more NYEEEH

and i look for some advice on line about it, and most of it is like "anxiety about getting lost at school." or "anxiety about somebody doesn't like you" and it's kinda frustrating cause my anxiety is much more about long term things that are far outside of my control.

i know it's outside of my control, and i tell myself that i am in a safe place now, and that i should accept the things i cannot change, and that does help a little. but the sheer frequency of those intrusive thoughts have been getting more annoying.

i think it probably has to do with the fact that i'm going to be leaving my goodwill job, and i'm trying to spark a creative venture. and i don't know if that will be proven useless if the internet gets locked down and i'm forced into some LGBT internment camp or something

also, it stands to mention i have an issue with catastrophizing, so i want to recognize that more.

anywho. i am sorta spilling the soul a bit, but despite that i am practicing healthy mental techniques, and it is helping. but it's overwhelming at times T_T

You have my contact if you need to let it out.

I believe I've seen people with depression and other issues suffer from the same matter? Emotional troubles aren't always rational, but people are very quick with rational advice to just not be anxious, like it's easy.

Sometimes one's mind races. It's easy to get trapped in a spiral when it's just your own mind lashing onto whatever dangles in front of it. Nevermind that you're actually going through times that an especially grounded person would still feel anxiety over.

thank you wheat, i appreciate that <3

i don't think i've ever been truly depressed, although i've had some down moments, they never were really that bad per say. i was definitely struck more with anxiety and need for control than anything. but i can definitely see the overlap

anywho, one thing i would ask is without saying anything too detailed or whatnot, how do you feel about the near future? if you don't want to answer, that's fine, but talking with friends about it has helped in a "we're all in this together" sort of way

i'm compelled to say "till death do us part" but that is definitely a cliche at this point!

i actually was playing around with a ghost style love story with the similar concept, but it's just a baby thought at this moment ^^

yeah, but it's rather creative to say the least! i didn't do any of the puzzle solving, but i imagine a lot of people probably were trying to figure out what was happening in that video

To answer with full honesty in a way that I'm afraid may not be the most therapeutic for someone struggling with anxiety, we did have an incident at work the other day so I've more or less been interpreting the future through that lens.

But... I do think a lot of people are sharing in the anxiety, and I believe that's making a lot of people long for a release. Something big and dramatic that just sorta wipes the slate clean. Personally I don't think it's coming. I think it's one of those feedback loops that leads to a lot of doom oriented thinking, but it isn't anything more than that for the majority of people.

I wasn't asked, but I'll say that i have no future anxiety whatsoever. The climate will collapse, maybe I'll be hunted down or interned for being exceptionally gay, but I just can't find a reason to be bothered by that. Like you said, outside my control. For whatever reason, I've always enjoyed loss of control. For the most part, all you have to do is endure! No choices, just survival. And I've so much experience in enduring and surviving.

Yeah, it's all good. But this still kinda bumps up against one of my own personal concerns I've been having lately. I used to over think a lot of things and that made me cautious and generally able to sense these things out. That was a survival trait for a lifetime but I don't feel i need it anymore. In fact, I'm actively opposed to over thinking because it's been so destructive in my life! So I'm just way less careful around people now and I'm just a tad worried that I'm acting recklessly with people's feelings. I am okay with being impulsive and acting a bit wild, but I don't wanna be an insensitive jerk!

But that's just my own stake in it. I'm just kinda trusting that acting genuine and being apologetic when appropriate can fill the gap left behind by ditching social anxiety!

oh inanis, i love your brilliant confidence in yourself and ability to live in the moment! in all honesty it's exactly where i want to be with my mental health. and it's just human nature to accidentally step on somebodies toes, we don't mean to do it, and we may have done nothing wrong other than just misread cues in the moment. life moves on, and i think you are fine. i'm glad you listened to me when i complained, and we can clear the air ^^

please keep acting genuine, and maybe one day i'll join ya ^^

Unless I missed something, rounding up the gays seems a bit hyperbolic at this point? In America at least. Acceptance seems on the rise.

Perhaps in today's world.  But in the event of a climate disaster (e.g., Clathrate gun hypothesis) that greatly reduces global GDP per capita, I could see social attitudes becoming much less favorable.

In parts of the world already predisposed to such sentiments, perhaps.

LGBT acceptance ebbs and flows throughout history however, not necessarily in reaction to economics.

I don't exactly have anxieties about being rounded up into a camp for being with my partner.

There would need to be a significant and backslide actively occurring. Not just a loud minority screeching about "the gays." I mean widespread corporate reaction in opposition to the LGBT community as that is now the more profitable market to cater to. GDP could rapidly fall and if the money available is still easier to access by being pro-LGBT, I'm not too worried about systemic extermination.

I only said that in response to something Noelle said in a similar vein >>1086207. I don't really imagine that's a very likely outcome, but as Suomi says there are paths there still!

That said, things are sliding back for trans people at least. And the courts are packed with people who will be anti trans and rule in anti trans ways. Bills are getting passed in red states which will literally be fatal to trans people, and if conservatives get their way it will only get worse. Not internment camp worse, but it's incredibly reasonable to have anxiety about it even in America. I personally don't but I am also in California and basically rich.

I mean, I'm also not trans, and I don't want to dismiss that struggle, especially for those transfolk in those red states.

But that there are LOUD detractors of that sort of thing now indicates to me a general rise in acceptance of them. There is a significant degree of work still to be done, yes. But even as holdouts gasp, splutter, and even push their views, that's on the way out. It's not so much a risk of a backslide as it is damage control as the die hards... die off.

Then again, due to my temperament and private disposition I'm not exactly easy to read. I don't typically engage with the larger LGBT community. I doubt average people would even pick up if something is a date and not just friends hanging out. So a lot of this is secondhand for me.

I do appreciate the discourse, and while I initially brought up the conversation,  I fully admit that was mostly catastrophizing on my part, which is something I've stru%led with since I was much younger.

If you asked me on a rational basisi, I saw a recent poll that suggested that 70 percent of Americans support gay marriage, and the acceptance level of trans people has been higher than in history for the most part. So while I am worried what far right courts and positions will try to do, it's going to be against a widely culturally accepted and scientifically backed group of people; and any push against them will be met with strong protest and public display.

So my rational brain is less worried about that, but a bit more worried about local government stuff around my town screwing me over. Like this little nugget about th Bible College in my town.

Yeah, stuff like what Noelle points out here are the kinds of things that cause me anxiety for friends and family members who live in places where they could be more directly hurt by reactionary actiins like this.

I live with inanis out here in California so I feel like I am personally safe out here, and I recognize that culturally things are improving over on ... but my old family is all in Texas right now so ...

I've been thinking about this a bit the past couple days.

So I believe people in general have been anxious about the future lately and that their anxiety has been feeding into each other (with outside assistance) into very doom oriented thinking leading to ridiculous conspiracy theories and bizarre lashing out in the political sphere. I don't really care much about that.

But it occurred to me that you recognized that you were getting anxious over a doom scenario that may not be entirely rational, and you reached out to us for grounding rather than letting it carry you away. And that struck me as being incredibly mature. Thinking about it, I don't believe most people would consider you to be so mature at a surface glance, Noelle. I certainly struggle to do such things.

There's definitely local issues in such places that it's perfectly reasonable to worry about. This makes much more sense to me.

this definitely is a big thing for me. Colorado on the whole is much socially progressive and is growing more so as people move here more and more. but i just so happen to live in what is probably the most conservative part of the state (8th in guns per capita of counties in the entire country) and i'm not far from Colorado Springs, where Focus on the Family is based in and the New Life Church is situated. so i'm exposed to a lot of that stuff.


but even still, i can at least rely on my state government to a degree to keep things pretty cool. i couldn't imagine what it would be like to be in a rural town in Texas, where things are much less certain...

>hugs and kajis <3

>>1086358
aww thank you <3

>hugs and kajis <3

i mean... it is true that i was looking for some grounding. even though it was definitely more of a "tell me everything is going to be okay" sort of thing :PP

but still, i like to feel i'm opening up a bit

>>1086359
yeah... it kinda sucks. but like i said to andrea, Colorado is more left leaning on whole, and the state government is pretty good. So while my town's government may be taken over by the crazy bible college people, i don't fear being directly affected by them.

heh, i guess you are right. i am running a bit more on overdrive, so i guess i'm a little more sensitive to stressful thought at this point.

but life doesn't stop for me, so knowing how to process these feelings, healthier mindsets and practices, and trying to improve my life in different ways are all important for me now.
