  1. I'm in the middle of writing an essay for an American history class and after writing each page I find myself back here to take a little break and get a fresh start on the paper. So my question is, what do you use TB to escape from? Work? Homework(like me)? Anything at all? :eyebrow:

    TB is not an escape for me. I come here to learn about bass. Along the way, I found the OT forum. I like to think I have made a couple "friends" here, so I check in frequently to see what my "friends" are up to.

    I don't use it as an escape...I just like to hang out here and talk to y'all when I'm at home.
     
  8. beat me to it!

    oh well, i actually came here to learn about bass stuff, and as it turns out, there is a little bit of useful information here, so i stick around.
     
  9. I go to TB when I'm bored...wow I get bored alot.
     
  10. Work, that is all.

    When I'm on the net, I come by to check what has happened.
    As an escape, it's mostly from study. And reality, but i'm a bit late with that reply
     
  12. Prison. I use TB to escape from prison.


    I wish I knew the lyrics to that wretched Hoobastank "reason" song...
     
  13. I use it almost everyday. Sometimes for questions about basses and amps, other times i just reply to posts in the off topic. I guess an escape from being bored on the internet.

    I play bass....what's your excuse?



    :ninja:





    Really it was somewhere to get useful info and a escape from reality every so often.

    Best wishes.
     
  15. It started as a place to get decent reviews and opinions of gear I was planning on purchasing. Now I use it to escape from work and occasionally throw in my 2 cents.

  16. I feel the same way. There should be some kind of bass-knowledge related class I can register for. After 5 years here I couldn't fit everything I've learned into a novel.

    I get paid to post here on TalkBass. It's what I do for a living.

    Hang on a second...

    Oh...my boss just informed me that I don't get paid to post here. My bad!

    I have to get back to work now. Which I still think is posting here. I'll have to have a talk with my boss, because if I'm not supposed to be doing this, then we really need to renegotiate my salary to compensate me. :D

    I find this place useful mainly for learning.
    Besides, it`s a good escape from my work duties (hope my boss isn`t reading) from time to time.
    It`s relaxing and entertaining.
