    Word to that... I guess events are as important as we make them in our heads... I too remember a time when winning or losing here ment more to me then sleep or homework just to name a few. We acted and reacted like a real communitiy at times... it was a very different time tho I guess. Audio nowadays is very easy to do and lyricism hasn´t been as important in hip hop as it was prior to RM´s high days for the past 5-10 years hip hop has become more and more about attitude then actual skill... I think we´ve seen at least part of that change set in here.. Too bad really I improved and enjoyed myself tremendously and still rhyme and record to this day. I would have loved for other generations to enjoy and prosper themselves here in similar fashion. *sigh* feel free to disregard the ramblings of an old man, but seeing how others feel about this place I shed some internet tears for RM text

    Remember when Pent Up, Sacrifice, Baron Mynd, Tali, Vern, Claus, and Richard Corey were all around, thus making it virtually IMPOSSIBLE to win an RSTL title? Got my first and proudest title during that era, and always wished they'd all come back and I could give them another, more serious run.

    Also, FUCK Super.

    Remember when Magus and Defcon used to go at it all the fucking time?

    Remember the intersite battle on Braggin Writes (this guy won the topicals for RM thank you very much)?

    Remember when John Dough was unfuckwitable in the RBL?

    Remember the RWF?

    Remember when I wrote for Got Life? a bunch of times one season only to completely bomb his championship match? No you don't, because it happened a couple times and I never told anyone.

    Remember how I was denied membership in every text crew ever?

    Pink slip battles...

    I was supposed to have one with someone and I can't remember.

    I think it was with Cal and he wouldn't do it.

    ^Hey, I got my payback.

    After about two years of you dudes koing me every time I reached a contendership match, I started winning and never stopped, haha.

    You, if I remember correctly, were rather salty about the bragginwrites tourney when I beat you.

    Speaking of which, remember KO's?

    Something like three or five consecutive, non-opposed votes resulting in an auto-win for the winner?

    That's one of the most genuine pieces I ever wrote, my mom honestly has neurasthenia, I gave it up after that.

    Psh I can't tell you how many times that happened to me.

    Probably different for you because you took a more creative and imaginative route with your writing so you weren't used to people not recognizing the genuine emotion and execution likewise of a piece, but I sure fucking was.

    But yea, that piece I posted against you was, I remember at the time thinking, that it was legitimately the best piece of writing I'd ever composed for a league.

    Frankly, I've been around longer than almost anyone here (if not everyone). Way too many memories to note. Most wouldn't be RM ones though. Sethro's, Homegrown, UPN. There was a time when this shit was really fun. Too bad most of the guys I thought were the best stopped writing a looong time ago. Would be dope to see guys like E2, Rudge, Cory Kalico, Kno, etc. still writing. Not to mention some of the newer guys.. Fracture. Resin. Not going to happen though..

    Topical leagues are pretty much non-existent now though. It's crazy when I think back to like... 2003/2004 here when the RSTL had sign-ins in double figures and the tribunes the mods used to post were HUGE haha!

    Word, I don't really know how these new cats are gonna get better. It's one thing when Vern is giving you advice, it's another when T.a.C. is (no offense T.a.C.).
