Here’s your 2024 Wild Winter Thread, which will remain in effect until… I don’t know, when does winter end? March something? Look, I just didn’t want to make you hang out under a Christmas tree all through February.
The winter months have a reputation for being boring and lifeless, but I’m starting to see them through a different lens. Piling blankets over myself like I’m Giles Corey before watching sixteen movies in a row because there’s literally nothing better to do? That doesn’t sound too bad.
Enjoy the thread! I thought the Halloween and Holiday ones were pretty great this year, so I figured I’d buck tradition and not disappear until August. May this dank basement be a blessed respite from the rest of the internet.
Okay After Darkers, here’s your Ho Ho Hot Holiday Thread for 2023! A quiet lounge for anyone who needs a chill, cozy hangout away from social media and the rest of the internet at large.
This thread will last until the end of the year, which includes a handful of major holidays, so feel free to chat about whatever you’re doing, eating, giving, getting, buying, watching and/or decorating. (Or, you know, about whatever else.)
I think this might set a record for the longest break between Dino Drac After Dark updates. Oops!
But it’s the Halloween season now, officially, so you guys deserve a new thread.
Happy Halloween to us all! I’ll be keeping busy on the main page and hope to see everyone there, but I know that Dino Drac After Dark hits different, so keep on keepin’ on in the comments, all season long.
Better late than never, here’s your Ho Ho Hot Holiday Thread for December 2022!
It’s been a strange year, right? I can’t quite put my finger on what’s going on, but like, if you discovered that you’d been living in some Matrix-like fake world for the last little while, would you be totally surprised?
The holidays can be a grounding force, so RN I am all about gingerbread candles, and Christmassy junk food runs, and scanning what’s left of my cable channels for any shows about cookie baking.
What I’m *not* about is checking the calendar, because even in an unfamiliar year, December’s keeping up its habit of flying by in what feels like three hours.
Have fun Christmasing in the comments! As background noise, here’s one of my old compilations of holiday commercials. Further background noise can be acquired from the Christmas Jukebox. Have a solid month! (I’ll be visiting the thread too, of course!)
