The Mozy we love plays great music, is a magical mixologist, and a wonderful dancer.

I miss that Mozy.

It was the Shooting Gallery that pushed me over the edge into buying my first ticket, even knowing it probably wouldn't be back that year.


I thought $70 was a lot for a ticket, or whatever it was.

You killed that Mozy. I warned you that you were but no one listened.
hijacking the bar was more important.

No one made this happen but you Mozy.

this bar has/had/will have again(thanks to you ensuring it)loading problems.

The second bar was created to get around this problem so that people could be in there without locking up thier computers...remember that problem a lot here had? I know you do.

you got nuthin on me, as I rarely visited this one or the new one.

Wasn't there a third one also?

Did you start any of them?

it seems like you just came back here to be some sort of Ethug to the Mods and anyone else that you feel stands in the way of whatever bug is up your ass.

If you think you are gonna gain new friends by doing this , you are wrong, if you think it is going to end friendships you might have still had in the future, you are right.

Continue on with your blah, blah, blah, you are now the second person that I have ever plonked, the other one was BQ, just last weak, for the same reason, you are merely trying to ruffle feathers and are therefore just a distration to all of us.

Hows that for loyalty, brotha' ?

That, indeed, was a sad thing to witness... I remember all sides of this.



But I have other issues to deal with now. The woods are dark and deep, And I have many promises to keep. And kilometers to go, before I sleep...

But... before I go... a round for us traditionalists who still watch *the* bar... as well as the new upstart!!

Who’s paul?

Goat that was pitiful. You had a chance to really let me have it and all you can say is change your name to Paul.
What the fuck


I don’t hate Burning man, the mods or the people on eplaya.

Emily sorry you got sucked into this. I think a PM would have helped.

Hahaha who you people kidding with these plonks.
You will read every word quit lying to these newbees.
I have been here too long. I know how the board works.

You have clearly mistaken me for someone that gives a shit what you think.
Just because my life doesn’t revolve around eplaya or burning man I have no life?
Believe it or not you still don’t know all even thou you think you do.
That was pitiful. Still have that chip on your shoulder I see.

What I never understand is the effort put into long posts when supposedly the poster no longer cares about eplaya. Seriously, I don't get it. In this case, Mozy, but I've seen it before. Last word syndrome? Eplaya is so great you can't leave it alone? Picking at an old scar so it won't heal? You do give a shit? Not as jaded as claimed?

The Bar did have problems, Bar II was established. Dork or some other IT-able person fixed the old Bar, but the new one kept running. I don't know what the fix was, something in the code about page numbers or some such. No lies. Bar II is in use now more than the original. Is THAT the bug up your ass?

So at the risk of losing a friend, I would like to clear my mind for a moment. I've known Mozy since 2007, when this great bear of a guy greeted me with a huge smile and made me feel instantly welcome. Since that meeting, I've felt a wonderful bond of friendship and camaraderie with him that has extended to our chats both on here and on Facebook. I was blissfully unaware of any past drama or situations regarding the ePlaya Bar and frankly, I still don't know too much about "the falling out". I do know that I've met some incredibly wonderful people on the playa and in this forum and thread and I greatly enjoy meeting and seeing everyone when we hit the playa each year.

Gradually I became aware that there exist some tensions between Mozy and a number of other folks on here, particularly as it regards the fracturing of the old ePlaya Bar group and then, the creation of the Bar 2 thread on here. As someone who on occasion is not on a high speed connection, I can agree with the fact that it takes this thread ages to load sometimes... glacially slow even. I can understand the simple desire to continue the fun and banter in a thread that loads more quickly, particularly as the snark can often lose some momentum when it takes 10 minutes between posts. Mozy has a different point of view on the creation of the Bar 2 thread, and, in deference to my friendship with him, I have stayed away, even though I know many of you in there and really enjoy the interactions, which I watch but have chosen not to participate in, just to keep the peace with Mozy.

I'm not real big on holding grudges. I'd rather do what I can to clean up my side of the street and move on. It bothers me when I think or know someone has issues with me and I try to do what I can to make things better. In this current situation, I feel like I have somehow inherited someone else's grudge, over which I have no control. I need to let that feeling go now.

Mozy, I know you to be a man with an enormous heart, vibrant, creative, exceptionally talented, a good husband, and a great deal of fun. What I don't get is how that Mozy can coexist with the grudge holding Mozy that has come so vibrantly to the fore in the last three days. I don't believe anyone in here has any desire to pursue a grudge match with you and what I read in the reply posts is a confused reaction... where has the Mozy we all know gone? I miss him. Why have you retreated to the shadows? Won't you come out and play with us again?

The playa is a big playground and there are dozens of bars. There will always be room for new bars, rehashes of old bars, strange twists on existing bars, etc. etc. etc. With all my heart, I wish you could just let this one go. I don't know the details, and they don't concern me. What I do know is the amount of hurt and festering pain that you seem to have allowed to build up over all of this. It's just a party in the desert. It isn't really worth the pain is it? Come out and play again. You can even have the ball.

So, I wish this one would have a happy ending and everyone would be all smiles and suddenly the birds would sing and we would all be cavorting merrily once again, with Mozy in the middle, playing his tunes, sipping his whiskey, smoking his stogie. What I suspect will happen, is that I will lose a friend on Facebook and be seen as one of the hijacking masses who have turned against you. I will never do that. I just want to have fun. I don't want politics. I want to see my friends and carry on with them... and that includes you, Mozy! I don't understand what you get out of the long term grudge, but I guess it is not for me to understand. I've held the candle for you in this thread for awhile now, occasionally bumping it up in hopes that you might even reappear in your old way. This reappearance was just too... odd. I still consider myself your friend and hope we do get to see each other again soon. I have other friends too, and they started a thread that loads faster than this bloated beast. I think I will post over there now. Won't you join us?? Won't you come back and play again??

I have to agree with the above post 100%. And why you decided to throw anyone and everyone in your self-assigned "fuck you" group is beyond me.

Your off-color, off-base post is so... strange.

Swing and a miss? Wow, you really ARE out of touch.

Pretty... telling... post. Chip? Dude, look in a mirror.

I feel sorry for you, Mozy. I really, really do. You make me... sad. That as your legacy, after close friendship and cameraderie is, well... not sane.

Have a good life. Get help. Seriously. Get some help.

AntiM's been keeping the peace around here for a long time (grateful!) and she asked for help. so i did what i could... because i remember the spambots. it's no fun deleting a bazillion posts... even if it wasn't on the 'always-dog-slow-for-me' bar thread.

and i've got too much else on my mind to see the mozybonzznobyzom mirror.

I don't pay much attention to the Bar or Bar II threads, so I come in here tonight out of boredom and read all kinds of stuff about Mozy, eplaya tensions, and a bunch of stuff that I had no idea was going on.

Ignorance is bliss.

The Mozy I met was the one bigbluedoggy described meeting for the first time. And in my mind that person is still one and the same. I think I'll employ selective filtering and just keep my perception the way it is....until I have a reason to do otherwise that reaches out and bitchslaps me across the face.

Before I go back to lurking what I did read has me glad I have stayed out of organized / theme camp camping with the exception of Kidsville. It's made for a much more drama free experience at the event and here in Camp Realitysucksbloateddonkeyballs.
