Indeed. Still seems like it was just recently that he and Tupac died… Same with Kurt Cobain… And it’s been quite a while, actually. Scary to think about.
Complete honesty: I’ve lived out here in California for ~30 years, and not once did I ever hear (or read until now) California being referred to as Cali. (I know I’m not exactly plugged into the Zeitgeist, but c’mon!)
You can, apparently, have it use BRIAN BLESSED’S voice. Why you would do anything else, I have no idea.
I still don’t ever hear a Californian say “frisco” and haven’t in the decade I’ve been living here. When it has come up conversationally, there is always an eye roll. Your anecdotes may vary.
I mean, where did people learn that they needed to do this to fit in? From Californians?
In Blessed’s voice: “You are now entering the town of Toad Suck, Arkansas.” Hmm.
I’m sure Kurt even died before some of us bbs members were born!
…only a year before though so don’t feel too old.

That was actually a typo on my part; I meant subscripted. Having the text be literally smaller is great for emulating a whisper.
Unlike me now. Thanks for that.
“Smells Like Teen Spirit” was an anthem for us in college in Seattle at the time. I got to hear it live from Nirvana at the record release party at Peaches Records.
Oh. So like when you want to whisper or just want to pretend to be walking away or trailing off into nothingness…
Also: 📌 BBS Style Manual!
Huh, cool; I had no idea we supported limited html in addition to markdown. Thanks!
Honestly, he was born only two weeks before me…
Yadda, yadda, lawn… Also…
I’m reluctantly giving you a like.
