Bitches, it's all about BALANCE; work hard, play hard. It's gotta be 50/50 all the time if you want to have your cake and eat it in the Fast Set, or else...
At any rate, this thread is useless without Mitcham's sex videos. Gay meth addiction involving a guy like Mitcham is NEVER without those videos!
R8 you can play hard WITHOUT using drugs. There is no reason to use drugs, especially something as hardcore as meth. Anyone still doing drugs in 2012 is a fucking moron. I'm so sick of fags turning to drugs when things aren't going their way. Guess what? It's called life and you have to sometimes deal with pain. Using drugs won't solve anything.

Amen, R10, amen!
Miss Righteous at R10, your opinion may be appropriate regarding general life, but we did specify a little something called the "FAST SET" in which hedonism rules over common sense. But, you already knew that. Thanks for playing anyway!
I'm totally down with playing hard, but crystal meth is no joke. I can't understand why anyone given what we know about it would ever even try it.
When we say "playing hard" what are we referring to?
p.s- is it hard to believe a twinky blond could be a meth queen?
"Playing hard" = touch football
I'll admit I'm completely naive about these matters, but is it even feasible for someone to develop - and then beat - an addiction to crystal meth in the course of a calendar year?
Was he treated badly back in Sydney post-2008? Weren't there stories of him being denied endorsement deals due to his sexuality? Was he with that hot bf of his when he started the downward spiral?
I heard horror stories about of how difficult it is to quit meth.
I'm sorry for this young beautiful man.

It's not like anyone wakes up and says hey, I think I'll get a drug addiction today. I'd really like te spend all my money, steal, overdose, and go into rehab. And not catch anything, if I'm lucky.
Well, he does have to live among his fellow Sydneysiders, so this makes sense.
WW for R10
Crystal meth is for evangelical preachers!

R21 but it's not the 60s, 70s or even 80s anymore. Everyone these days knows even if you casually try a drug, there is a chance you could become hooked after that first use. It doesn't matter if you're having a bad day, "partying", or just doing it for the hell of it. 1 try is all it takes for some people. Anyone who even tries drugs and takes that risk in 2012 is a fucking moron. There's no excuse for it. Now, I'm glad this guy is off meth, but those of you excusing his past use of it or saying "partying" is ok, you're idiots.
I'd rather hang out with a meth queen than r10/r25 who is coated in smug.

So nice that Datalounge has its own Nancy Reagan scold.
You probably think Refer Madness is a documentary.
Mitcham seems like such a ray of sunshine in interviews and in his homemade music video performances on youtube. I'm really surprised to hear about his depression problems and issues with self-cutting and suicide attempts. I've always thought that being well accomplished at sports is good for building self-esteem in a young person, but apparently not in every case.
I can't find the 60 Minutes interview online yet, but here is a transcript of the segment.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
