Return of the Ugly Truth BBS

Many props to Rachelle for sending me this old BBS.LOG file. In case you were unaware of it, before the internet there were hundreds of BBS systems that people could call and post messages, upload files that others could then read, reply to and download (messages and files, respectively.) These BBS reached a certain level of subculture all to their own. I had many friends that I only knew via posts on various boards. I met some of them at BBS Gatherings… but mostly I knew them by their posts and by their Aliases: Steveo, Fuckhead, Gunner, Cerridwen, Snaker, Big Dog, Taint, Trader john, Firestorm, Mr. Hoohah, Towelhead, Jezebel, J. Homes, Riff Raff, Shinobi, Raccoon, Ducky, Circuit… Here’s hoping some of them happen upon the site via googling one of them. If you do.. Dead Air says hello. :)

And now, the BBS.LOG. If you don’t understand what any of this means, or if you don’t think any of it’s funny – you’re not supposed to. You had to be there.

In a political and legal challenge to California law, city authorities officiated at the marriage of a lesbian couple Thursday and said they will issue more gay marriage licenses.

The act of civil disobedience was coordinated by Mayor Gavin Newsom and top city officials and was intended to beat a conservative group to the punch.

Wow. You go girl. *snap snap snap*
