Is this an okay time to be completely off-topic?
If so, ITT we drink to the memory of moot.
If not, expect me to delete this thread in a few minutes.
I'll drink. Just keep posting anime/manga and maybe it'll slide.
In all of my years on this site I've never felt apart of the community other than the One Piece threads and a few other selective series on /a/ but I've always been a fan of Moot.
Hey man. Whatever happens, happens.
>A star just fell from the sky.
>That is not an ordinary star, my son. That star is the tear of a warrior.
>What warrior is it?
>A lost soul who has finished his battles somewhere on this planet. A pitiful soul who could not find his way to the lofty realm where the great spirit awaits us all.
See you, space moot.
You take care Moot. Travel far, have fun, and we hope you've enjoyed this ride for it is finally ending for you. ;_;
Fuck, still hasn't fully sunk in that I'm posting in a mootless age. Thought he'd be around as long as I was.
I know feels are scorned on /a/ (for good reason) but never has this felt so relevant.
Bourbon, like a boss.
But, honestly, I think talking about what we're drinking isn't going to get us anywhere.
I tried to start something with 'what would asuka drink?' but it didn't work out too well. Give me a bit of time and I'll try to come up with an interesting topic.
Who should succeed moot?
What would your waifu drink?
Daily reminder that hating snake is a meme.
Are crossboarders really that bad?
Ugh, what the fuck am I saying? Fuck you /v/. You are everything wrong with the world.
Drinking some tea for the moment (would have had some beer but it's the fucking morning here, cut me some slack).
It hasn't sunk in for me either.
>Wants to transfer ownership to someone else
>Always told us "I'll be the last one to turn out the lights"
Why did you have to lie to us? It hurts moot. I thought you would be here to the end
A fine drink for a fine faggot.
>Who should succeed moot?
Its a tough job to fill, but I hope he doesn't go public with his name like moot did.
>What would your waifu drink?
Bourbon as well.
>Daily reminder that hating snake is a meme.
Snake is for hate fucking.
>Are crossboarders really that bad?
implying that we don't all do this.
I kind of feel like mootykins should join the /a/ 4chan cup team as a perma member.
>these newfags worshipping moot
Did you even watch the Q&A, despite saying how he 'loves' /a/, he doesn't watch any anime and is at odds with half the people on 4chan
moot is a faggot, and a horrible admin who ruined his own website
Can't I just have a fucking day you turbo nigger.
All I have is super chill root beer to drink...
Did anyone else send moot an unnecessarily long email telling him how much 4chan has effected you and thanking him for everything he's done?
I typed mine up listening to Space Lion on the catalog while tears rolled down my face. I just wanted him to know.
He deserved to know.
Jim Beam Black Label
Never realized I'm the same age as moot, feels weird
I was thinking of doing it but I assume that he has more important thing to do aside from reading the countless amounts of email. Besides I would not know of anything meaningful to say to him/
I've grown up and still like anime. I don't watch as much but I have less free time in general. I have a job, a wife and kids but still like anime and videogames.
moot is immature, he needs to try being himself rather than taking a dick up his ass to earn funding for some web startup. It's pathetic
But then maybe for him, being the faggot he was in the Q&A is always what he's been. If that's the case I pity him
Won't have to worry about that for much longer, feds will be here soon since we have no one left to protect us.
Glorious. Or ignorance. Either way Tumblr doesn't really bother 4chan that much. They only really interact with 3 boards, 2 of them full of women and /pol/. And even then it's just /pol/ shitposting most of the time
He is always begging for people to email him.
Like in the stream every 15 minutes
>Guys I can't answer all your questions so make sure to email me! I read all that I get!
Just send him something and call him faguck or something.
Btw, faguck, all me, original idea donut steel.
This is actually really good timing on moots part. I planned on stopping 4chan for good and just as my bandwidth is about to run out I hear moot is retiring. I guess it's a good time to leave.
As for moot, I never really knew the guy but we all kind of knew who moot was. It doesn't hit me as hard as some of the people who met him IRL. But, this site has definitely had a huge impact on my life, for better or for worse. It did alot of bad things to my psyche, helped me to learn about myself and others. But it also did alot of good. I learned alot hanging out on 4chan about alot of things. So for the most part it did good, more good than bad.
-Helped bring out and expose my attraction to very young girls (thanks /b/)
-Helped me through depression and anxiety (thanks /a/)
-Brought me closer to the truth of the world, with the Illuminati and how Jesus is real (thanks /x/)
-Helped me learn a hell of alot about technology (thanks /g/)
-Helped me to understand that feminism gay marriage etc is all part of a Jewish conspiracy (thanks /pol/)
-Gave me lots of laughs (thanks /v/ and /b/)
-Exposed me to elitism and autism (thanks /jp/)
Thanks moot for your hard work. Have a good rest and see you in the next world.
Goodnight /a/. Tomorrow I will wake up, browse, and post on a site that moot longer frequents, much less runs.
>Had the site since 14, has yet to sheckle it out to foreign entities for gold. Is cutting ties completely and giving ownership to only people he trusts. If even a twentieth of corporate leaders were like him the world would be a better place.
So disgusted with this shitty toxic board.
Don't even want to do something nice for moot that actually matters and thinks he cares about some shitty internet cards.
Could have given him his life long dream.
Okay now that's giving me some flashbacks
Too bad it's not this anon.
So you didn't listen to the Q&A then
And oh wow he hosted 4chan for years nobody could have or wanted to have done that! He's selling it, didn't you know?
And he already sold us out to the Feds, so much for no foreign entities
moot cultists are just deluded and ignorant
New fucking fags
Moot is a good man. He stuck by his guns for the better part of a decade and refused to sell out. He has endured years of people call him a faggot, a sellout, an SJW, and a cuck; yet, he keeps on going and keeping the site up.
Even now as he leaves, he doesn't blame anyone for 4chan's failure but himself.
it's so stupid.
i hardly post on /a/ anymore and usually stick to /mu/ and /co/, but tonight i feel like an /a/non again like i was back in '04.
such a weird feeling on here tonight, but i'm glad to be spending it with you retards.
Like him or hate him, you are posting on a site with a community that was brought in by him, s you gotta respect him for what he has done.
I never wanted to last longer than moot lol. He's still going to be an anon but I feel that... it will never be completely the same.
I'll go back to lurking on /a/ like I always do, but it's going to be an interesting year. Looking through The Bartender manga atm to find a good mixed drink to make.
I was never a super big fan of moot, but knowing that the man who created this site and was always there behind the scenes, has now retired, I just don't think I can come here and love this place like I used to. It's just not the same site anymore.
If you need to look through a manga for a mixed drink recipe you probably have none of the ingredients in your house
Pick a spirit, google the drinks made with that spirit. A lot of them you'll need extra to make
>I never wanted to last longer than moot lol.
Ironically enough, me too. I was here way back in highschool, but always thought that I would outgrow 4chan before moot did (or either died).
I'm still here now though, and while I don't feel self-pity, it's still sombering.
Drinking a 39' wine left to me by my grandfather.
I dont know if space lion is helping or hindering atp
I'm drunk right now, I don't really know what I should be doing but one thing that has been bothering me for a while is: what is the appeal behind Asuka? I never got why so many people like her, first of all I know she isn't Tsundere but she has Tsundere tendencies and I get the attraction to Tsundere. I just don't see it, she just came off as an annoying obnoxious bitch with penis envy and mother issues, what the fuck is the appeal?
just a run of the mill beer, some local brand my roommate bought.
>you outlasted moot
oh wow I never thought about that. Now I just feel like shit. Although Christopher is still posting, and he says he regularly browses /a/ still. So he can still never leave, he's just not Moot
I'm getting tired of this, you can't have any fun any more because people bitch and moan too much about 'being off topic' that its killed a lot of potentially interesting threads. I know some stuff can be slightly off topic but does it really matter than much? So long its got some vague relation to anime then I don't see the problem, but no threads get deleted so damn quickly. I'm surprised this thread is lasting this long.
What's with the music?
Is moot going to Twin Peaks?
Actually, I do. I'm just looking for something interesting, and if I have to buy it, I will.
I have a shaker, strainer, stirrer (bar spoon), muddler(crusher thing), and juicer.
I think I'm just going to go with a simple mizuwari.
That's another problem all together, people make out that you have to be Shinji to be interested in anime which simply isn't true. Anime MCs are a real mixed bag, I never saw the appeal the generic dense MC that you're suppose to self insert. Take a series like Welcome to the NHK! where you are meant to relate to Satou but I don't feel that connection, even though I have a penis I relate a lot more to Misaki, hell I even relate more to Yamazaki but a lot of Otaku have this preconcieved notion that we're all Shinji in denial which I think isn't true. I would have been completely different in his situation.
As for Asuka I can't relate to the facade she puts on. You want to know who is a good representation of me ? Fucking 8man, there are decent characters to relate to that aren't generic Shinji clones.
moot found his way out the black lodge.
I would drink, but this is the only beer I have at the moment. I'm not really too keen on it....
just trolling around, seeing how everyone is grieving
/tg/ made me laugh though
>The official state beer of China
You kind of have to drink it
I don't drink alcohol, but I'm on my third banana and coconut smoothie
Nah, I just don't really remember that particular piece, my bad.
Also Twin Peaks is on Amazon Prime now, if anyone has it. Worth a gander.
In fact Shinichiro Watanabe should do a mystery show like that sometime. It'd a be good fit.
I'm kind of jealous that there isn't a can of some shit beer that says "The official beer of the US Government"
I'd call it Eaglebrau
Did you know KILLER BOB was in Amagi Brilliant Park?
That odd empty feeling when you type out extremely long 2,000 word posts, then just close the tab before posting every time.
I don't even know why I'm in this melancholic mood; I don't even like moot or relate to him. Man, I've been here since I was 12.... and in 14 more months I can legally drink. In four more years, I can say I've been on this shitty site for half of my life.
One day, I'll be here as a 30 year old man and reminisce about youth well spent.
Also I realize since most people probably were posting here at the age of 16-25 a decade ago... you guys are all Christmas cakes now... All the little girls have gone to high school, college, then entered the workforce...
Expired goods, the lot of you....you're too old to even debut in a High School anime, much less be a little girl!
I already drank a 40 of St. Ides. Now it's on to almost half a bottle of red wine followed by a 24 ounce can of pabst blue ribbon to finish things off. This hangover is for you moot.
Here you go, nothing special.
It just means the brewery is state owned, I think Qingdao/Tsingtao is too... But that was started by Germans.
I love this song but it just makes me sad now, yet i don't want to stop listening.
drinking shitty angry orchard a friend pawned off on me
I'm gonna miss old Moot, but now he's just gonna be another faceless anon like the rest of us, and most likely that is the way it should be.
I do that all the time too. Its a weird feeling, but it isn't weird to feel that way. A very large and established part of this community just got up and said it was time to move on. It feels sad man.
Oh shit. Somebody save Sento before she shows up covered in plastic.
That's the best space to occupy.
Actually chugging beers after say, the 2nd or 3rd pint, isn't even enjoyable. It sits heavy on your stomach, makes you gassy, gives you an appetite for junk food and goes beyond pleasant tipsyness into headache tier drunkenness.
If you want to get pleasantly drunk, you drink wine.
All I have is shitty vodka and nothing to mix it with.
Drinking anyway because it hurts worse than I thought it would. This all happened way too fast.
>came here when I was 14
I hate to think of the total time I have wasted my life on this website.
But I wouldn't give it up for anything.
I feel a little bad about not bringing this idea up days ago. You guys remember what moot did at the end of every panel? He'd always have everyone go NO U. Fuck it would have been beautiful to have all the boards come together for that.
for anyone that wants a break from space lion, We're having a little cross board git'together if you want to join /a/
and /pol/ admitted it was wrong
I came here when I was 14 too, I think it was 2008 This place practically raised me. My taste in everything, from music to books, has been shaped by this place.
/pol/ was never interested in "gamergate". GamerGate came from /v/, /pol/ initially engaged with it before realizing it was massively autistic.
Note that whenever there has been a controlled poll about GGers political affiliation, they have always been left-liberal by a vast majority. In short, they're just your typical garden variety /v/irgin who is cool with 95% of liberalism but dislikes the "SJWs".
/pol/ hates these people as /pol/ is full of uncompromising white nationalist types who despise any form of liberalism.
I've been on this site since I was 14 years old (I'm now 20). /a/ was the first board I ever started going on, but over the years I've migrated to other boards and now mostly go on /mu/ and /lit/ everyday, I haven't been to this board in years. But this seems like a fitting time to pay a little visit. I love you guys, you're my family.
See you space cowboy. Some time, some place.
Maybe it's a sign of how fucking pathetic my life is, but I feel like moot leaving is one of the most pivotal events in many years. I just don't trust anyone else to run this shit hole.
>Expect "The Real Folk Blues"
>It's "Space Lion"
I wasn't ready for this feel
I listened to some of the Q&A and Moot sounds like a pretty well-adjusted intelligent chap, strange really, for some reason I had him down as a meme spouting autistic man-child like so many of us.
The worst part is moot hasn't been gone for more than 24 hours and this place is already erupting into civil war. Boards blaming each other for the state of 4chan. At this rate we won't survive.
>Before moot left different boards never got mad at each other
Reminds me of the guy who placed his cum-filled-rainbowdash-jug ontop of his heater on accident.
It then boiled it in jizz.
Been rooting around in the Cowboy Bebop OST for the name of this song but I can't figure out which one it is. It's killing me, and the song is so depressing it makes me want to kill myself with the circumstances.
>don't forget, you're here forever.
He'll be back.
>wow moot left
>all this time
>and now where am I?
I'm going to try to sleep.
You'll all be here when I wake up, right?
the same thoughts are going through my brain
>all things have to pass
>such is life
we may not like it, and we wont. Sometimes we will like it. Sometimes we will make friends, sometimes we wont. But it's ours. Our warrior star, our life. Our realm and great spirit.
>an older fag than the oldest
>what am I doing
At least you guys get to be sad at home. I had to go to straight to work right after he said see you space cowboy.
I honestly don't know. With moot leaving I'm honestly looking back on my life and seeing a big waste of time. I've loved my time with you all and I've loved being introduced to new material. You all have taught me so much. I came on in 2006 while I was in Iraq. I saw desu, chanalogy, rickroll, the rise and fall of popular anime. I've seen the reassurance of thoughtful animes and I loved every second of it. But now I don't know, this is getting old. I've gone from /b/ to /a/ to /o/ to /v/ to /k/ to /pol/ to /whatever/ and now I'm tired. I love learning but how much time am I wasting? You guys kept me through my trials over seas, then when I got broke from the army, then my rehab, then my university and failings and not giving up. My god, ever since 17 I've been here. I just don't know. With moot gone I have to wonder why I am still here. Is it time to move on? Sorry about the rant but seriously I don't know where to go or what to do?
My first post here on /a/. I don't even like anime and have always hated animefags posting in threads on non anime boards.
But after today I realized we have all been posting together on the same website for 7 fucking years sharing the same feels.
Drinking right there with you guys, you glorious faggots.
I may have to watch coyboy bebop now
Fuck I keep listening to the last minute of his Q&A. I can't stop crying. I've honestly had the best memories of my life because of 4chan. I really love moot regardless of what he's done in recent years, I'm really glad he made this website.
tl;dr of the Q&A?
I couldn't watch it, I don't think my listening skills in English are that good anyway and now I'm in a place where I can't emit sound.
And what happened with the signatures?
You're making this harder than it should be moot.
I don't give a fuck
I got no where else to go. I'll stay here until the lights burn out themselves if moot won't do it.
Of course. I've got no where else to go.
Who else sat through the whole 8 hours? I figured I owed him at least that much.
>drinking wine and listening to his ramblings for 8 hours
>cry bitchtears after parting words at 5am
Well I'm not getting any work done today.
Might clean my apartment and then marathon Cowboy Bebop as a tribute to moot.
This selfless cunt kept saving us from being destroyed by our own stupidity. We did shit that would've brought down a hundred other websites. But with his effort and constance, we were able to keep on trucking and discuss and argue about the dumbest shit while also keeping each other company.
For all the shit you went through, thank you. Space cowboy.
ya, let's see what's over that horizon. what the fuck was I thinking.
This really about sums it up.
I sat around for the whole 8 hours.
He should've peed and eaten on mic though.
This'll be my first post-moot-Q&A post, so I suppose I'll go ahead and say, Thank you moot, you may have finally come to terms with your being a cuck and all, but you're still a pretty cool guy. It'll be interesting to see what a post-moot 4chan will look like, and I surely hope that this site continues to grow in a positive way, rather than stagnate and die out.
On second thought, I just failed the reCaptcha three times, so fuck you moot
Until the bitter end. It can't be helped.
>only a little more than a year younger than moot
I will use that one year to get my shit together.
hopefully i don't get crapped on for asking, but what is the song that is currently playing? whiskey plus this song, and the fact that moot is gone is really giving me a bad case of the feels.
God fucking dammit m00ty...
Also, this music is making me want to play Sim City 4 for some reason
Yes I know I didn't delete personal info from the bookmarks, I don't give a shit
I haven't been there since beta. Do they still take things too seriously? It felt like the fun started getting sucked out of it when people got ACRE working and we started doing bigger ops.
>tfw Moot read and responded to one of your questions
i can't believe how sad moots passing makes me.
i really feel like i never appreciated what he gave us.
and i only have skimmed milk ;_;
i got incredibly lucky,
>on /a/'s card
>on /a/'s song,
>answered my question about boxxy even though the answer was lack luster.
im sad but fulfilled.
also i still think they fucked
hey my post got on your cap cool.
also dont kill yourself
I'm sorry anon.. I didn't mean to I swear!
NEVER SEEN A BLUER SKY
I've really been here for almost ten years? Holy shit. I knew Moot would leave someday but I never thought I'd still be here to see it. I wonder if I'll still be here in another decade.
I need a drink. Space Lion is definitely not helping.
Thank you for what you've done moot, I'm so happy you were here all this time.
And thank you, each and every anon, I'm so happy to have spent time with you.
Found myself twice in that.
I'm not sure what to feel
I was drinking last night, when I passed out an hour into his stream, after posting with you faggots all night. Then I had to get up 2.5 hours later for work. Now i'm back here and I'm going to start drinking again, while listening to him speak officially on 4chan related matters probably for the last time.
I got a whole bunch of different beers I've been trying recently, since working a lot affords you choice in alcohol. I've also got good whiskey, which i'll hoe into in a few hours. And i'll probably pass out in front of my computer again, before i wake up and go to work.
I'll just say that its been nice doing this with you guys. This is where it all began and it's fitting that we're coming together to appreciate the man who made it all possible.
It's ok Touhoufag, we still have plenty of time to insult each other even without m00ty
That's why it's our sacred duty to tell them to lurk more or fuck off.
Y'know, I haven't been here that long. Hell, most of you would probably say I'm a newfag, and I'm pretty sure no one is gonna give a fuck about this post, but I gotta say something.
This place is one of the best things that ever happened to me. As some other anon up there said, it shaped who I am, my tastes, the way I act and talk, everything. And because of this place, I met some pretty great people, in meetups, /tg/ games, /vp/ trade threads, /m/ Gunpla threads and shit.
So, thank you, /a/nons, and thank you, moot. Thank you for this place and for what it did to me.
Did anyone confirm this?
Or is ED trolling?
>tfw literally never drank any alcohol in my entire life because I have never been on parties or there like.
What does it taste like? What is a good drink for beginners?
Nothing. Moot kills 4chan for me before retirement. I can't posting anymore. Goodbye
Alcohol is an acquired taste. I highly suggest red wine for beginners. If it doesn't make you feel sick/give you allergic reactions then you can start drinking stronger liquor. Stay away from anything that is Smirnoff. It's shit
>What is a good drink for beginners?
If you like sweet things, a pre-mixed drink like vodka and cola, or bourbon and cola.
For beer, a good dry lager as they tend to go down smoother than the really hoppy, bitter beers. Nothing too cheap, like 3.5% swill, otherwise you'll gag.
Pear or apple Cider is another good choice, but be warned it will not necessarily be sweet. Depends on the brewer.
I'd stay away from the harder stuff, but if you must choose a good whiskey, at least 12 years old, and drink it straight, no ice. It will pack a punch though.
You could also try a sweeter wine, like a moscato.
Goblin vomit, a mix of vodka and lime soda.
Here's to moot.
>deepthroating a stalagmite
Its sad to see someone go in such a big way but seriously Moot hasn't really been relevant for a long ass time now.
The guy doesn't come here other than to just have everyone go crazy and suck his dick also he's clearly outgrown his anime phase.
While moot may be gone, he lives on in the hearts of all those who post
Well it's 9:30 am here but I do have this bottle of scotch and nothing to do.
I had to give up after about 2.5 hours (just after he skips /a/'s card) to get some sleep. Can anyone give me a tldr of the rest of it? Anything significant mentioned apart from /a/ being the best board and I have a million buddies?
I think it will.
The real moment of truth here is when somebody else buys 4chan. Either they get it and the site carries on, or they don't and alienate the user base as it is to the point of everyone leaving.
Yeah, he always was tsundere for it.
So nothing else noteworthy?
I heard the bit about /b/ costing him tens of thousands over the fappening. Did 4chan ruin him completely?
For a second I misread your post as "fiancée"
Hey guys. I was thinking of watching anime in memory of our dear moot. If you'd like, we could.. y'know, watch together. What do you say?
He has a mother, who is probably sick of 4chan more than him. Never heard anything about his father so I assume he was brought up by a single mother. He also mentioned in the stream about how 4chan was his only friends, he doesn't really have many friends in real life.
This pic is just him and mods, not him and friends.
Finished some the bottle of shouchuu on to the Jack Daniel's. Crying bitch tears.
Its an end of an era, but time well spent I feel.
I'm a wizard now but living the dream in japan.
Moot your a faggot, but I'll always remember you and look back to the god times.
>Dude's a step away from being a hobo.
That's sad, I kind of hope that some social website will take him on as a technician or customer service or something. God knows he has enough experience.
