Spanish/ Swedish > English: Viking conquistador - goto80(song)

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=g3J-yD1MzLE

I’m fluent in Spanish and I understand some of the first verse and he talks about how he likes to rape people and light them on fire. He also talks about like contracting/ or spreading sexual diseases. I’d like a better translation tho, thank you. Also I think the second verse is in Swedish, could be Norwegian or something but the artist is Swedish so I assume it’s that.

[For Sale] 500 vinyl records, shipping within the EU

Hey folks,

I'm new to this sub. If myposting should violate any guidelines, please comment or contact me and I'll change accordingly asap.

That said here's what this post is about: I'm selling 500+ vinyl records. Nearly all of them are 12", most of them albums. The great majority is Rock & Pop but there's also Jazz, Funk, Soul, Gospel, Electronic, ...

I made a huge google sheet with all the details of the records like country, label, number, with grading of record and sleeve and of course with a price for each record. Also titles are linked to discogs and colored according to the grading. The list can be found here:

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1l4dtQazEHprucbHOb-GcSFcOhiBi9JuHtVqNyICW6BI/

However, since it seems plain text is required here, I'm also providing exactly this below.

For the shipping: I'm based in Germany and shipping within the EU is no problem at all. Unfortunately with COVID-19 still ravaging around the globe I cannot ship to the US (it would cost about 53.00€ to ship a record).

Since I'm a private seller I exclude warranty of any kind. All records are excluded from change and return.

So, enough talking, here's the list with grading of sleeve first and record second:

0,50 €

  • Lisa Stansfield - This Is The Right Time (1989) VG+ VG
  • Mirage - The Jack Mixes (1987) VG VG
  • Peter Hofmann - Rock Classics (1982) VG+ VG+

[Award Ceremony] Painting With More Rhythm

Ciao, musical amateurs, instrument players, and people with awful, no-good musical taste!

What a great musical adventure it was! When choosing this theme based on its immense popularity a few years ago, we expected it to fair pretty well this time around too. However, we didn't expect to absolutely drown in sound. With an unprecedented 95 entries, this contest more than doubled the previous record for most entries held by the Cinematic Arts contest at 42 entries. It was an exceptionally hard time for our reviewers to pick out the funkiest grooves, the nastiest riffs, the catchiest hooks and the tightest drumbreaks. But after days of thorough listening and genre whiplash, here we are presenting our albums of the year.


The winners of this month's contest, Painting With More Rhythm are:

  • The first place with 9.40 points goes to /u/amiral_zheng and her piece Misplaced in Time. She is therefore awarded with a Golden Beret and permanent golden medal! Her piece will decorate the sidebar of the subreddit until next contest, and she can crosspost her winning artwork to r/polandball. She has also been bestowed the title of Fochloc and an added golden paintbrush to her flair so she can show off in front of her artist friends.

  • With 9.20 points, second place goes to /u/paulionm and their piece St. Helena - When Will I Finally Get My Long-Awaited Peace And Quiet?. He is therefore awarded with a Silver Beret and permanent silver medal!

  • Finally, with 9.17 points, the third place goes to /u/DinoTzarr and their piece Walestorm - No Clay But the Sea. They are therefore awarded with a Bronze Beret and permanent bronze medal!


Here are the full results:

Score Author Entry σ
9.40 /u/amiral_zheng Misplaced in Time 0.49
9.20 /u/paulionm St. Helena - When Will I Finally Get My Long-Awaited Peace And Quiet? 0.98
9.17 /u/DinoTzarr Walestorm - No Clay But the Sea 0.69
8.83 /u/Lars2703 Anger Upon the Oppression - Self-Titled Album 1.07
8.80 /u/paulionm Zanj - Kaleidoscope 0.40

63 Overlooked/Underrated Pop Songs From 2020 (with write-ups)

Over the month of December I posted two songs per day in the Daily Discussion threads (one single and one album track (mostly)) that I felt went unnoticed by most people but would potentially be enjoyed, and this is a compilation of those write-ups.

There’s a definite pop focus but I picked these tracks with an ear for diversity of sound/artistry so there’s quite a few different things going on here and some picks that might make you roll your eyes, but I think there’s something for everyone!

Here is a Spotify playlist that compiles all the songs but a walkthrough of the playlist is below.

FFO = "For Fans Of"


##Singles:

> “Pink Pony Club” by Chappell Roan

  • FFO: Taylor Swift

This an excellent example of using music to further storytelling: it begins with this almost old-western sounding piano line that slowly climbs as Chappell describes her small-town dreams, which are abruptly cut off by sparse, pulsing synths as she describes her apprehensions, only for the thrilling full arrangement to kick in once she overcomes her fears during the chorus. And all of this slaps, of course, the production on this track is fantastic and there’s even two triumphant electric guitar solos!

> ”Dirty Nikes” by Ruth B.

  • FFO: Alessia Cara

Ruth B.’s first foray into r&b the song is strikingly minimalist, it’s mostly just a drum beat with some sparse piano chords and Ruth’s ghostly voice lilting gently. It’s a total vibe that fits the melancholy air she’s going for and helps put the focus on the melody, which is packed with unassuming hooks and a lot of simple but memorable lines.

> “Boys!” by Bronze Avery

  • FFO: Troye Sivan

On the off-chance that any of you are into dudes you might relate to this track, which is a sun kissed synthpop ode to boy craziness. It’s a short song (only about two and a half minutes long) but it does exactly what it sets out to do, which is provide a nice little jolt of gayness to your day. The synth pads and sleepy melody are easy on the ears, Bronze brings a bit of steaminess to the track with his coy delivery, and if you can hold back from shouting out “BOYS!” with the chorus then you’re a stronger person than I am.

> “Love You Less” by tv room

  • FFO: Selene Gomez

There’s a fairly str

MF DOOM and GTAV

Hi all,

I don’t care if you knew who he was or if you like his music or not, just thought it was worth mentioning that DOOM’s final project was a song by The Chocolate Conquistadors and was made specifically for the Cayo Perico heist update. In fact, given that he apparently died at the end of October, it was released after his death whilst no one knew he had died.

If you’d like to hear it you’ll hear it on Worldwide FM in game and another song of his is on Flylo too. Just wanted to let you all know.

ALL CAPS my guys

[SHARE] "VILLAIN GUEST APPEARANCES" 80-Track Fan Compilation | Solo Edits of MF DOOM Features (.FLAC, .ALAC, .320KBPS)

Looking back, Unexpected Guests could've been a multiple-volume series. DOOM was prolific as a featured artist, consistently giving others quality verses that could've been used for his own albums (Despite the lyric: "I sell them bums a scrap verse that's so-so nice / Ya get what ya pays for, raps for the low-low price"). My VILLAIN GUEST APPEARANCES fan project began as an EP called LOOSIES, and I gradually kept adding songs until it snowballed into eighty tracks. I'm guessing there's about ten or eleven songs that I'm missing, and I invite the /r/mfdoom community to help contribute to completing this project. Think of this compilation as an open document that anyone can edit. The goal is for this to be an extension of the subreddit's discography guide (a resource much better than Wikipedia's page), and hopefully more people will hear some of DOOM's lesser-known gems.

Files, artwork and tracks have all been tagged manually. Please share with other fans, on file-sharing sites, whatever. Just enjoy and celebrate his genius.

Ranking my favourite entries from each year.

Y'all phones bout to crash!

65. 1957 - Netherlands - "Net als toen" by Corry Brokken (winner of 1957).

The winning entry of the very second Eurovision contest. The first couple years were pretty dull, to be honest, but this seems like a logical winner, even if I'm not sure what was the standard of quality at the time. The violin part is sort of nice, but that's the most I can say about this little lullaby. Score: 4/10

64. 1956 - Germany - "So geht das jede Nacht" by Freddy Quinn (placement unknown).

I'm almost ready to call anyone who says "50s Eurovision had great songs" a liar. At least in the first two years it's filled with boring songs, and even knowing the titles for at least 10 years and going through every song every once in a while, I still struggle to hum the melody of about half of these songs from memory. This song, at the very least, is fast paced and you can actually say that this is the only song of its kind. I respect this, but I don't necessarily love this. Score: 4/10

63. 1960 - United Kingdom - "Looking High High High" by Bryan Johnson (2nd place).

A memorable tune in a largely unmemorable contest. UK were the saviour in the 60s Eurovision, usually sending a song that's easy to sing along to, and this one has some little charm to it. Unfortunately, I don't think I'll be done with rants about the boring years for a while. Score: 5/10

62. 1962 - Spain - "Llamame" by Victor Balaguer (nul points).

While this song has a nice tune, and some Spanish charm, it registers as "just ok" for me and is just the best song in a very poor year. Still - pretty shocking that this song wasn't good enough for at least some points. Score: 5/10

61. 1964 - Luxembourg - "Des que le printemps revient" by Hugues Aufray (4th place).

One thing I like to look for in Eurovision songs is some cultural signatures. And call me cray-cray, but I kind of hear a little bit of Johnny Cash, a little bit of US country ballads, and I get the picture of a guy sitting in saloon, playing this guitar, drinking sasparilla in the breaks, and a bar fight is abo

Some recommended listening..

Some of these may have had a mention already, but definitely worth checking out:

-A couple of Gilles Peterson shows from the past few days - one full near 2.5 hour DOOM tribute show and a tribute section in the other show - plenty of deep cuts, some great records sampled by DOOM thrown in as well:

https://worldwidefm.net/show/mf-doom-in-tribute/

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/m000qx4v (from 1h.41m)

-just listening again to an excellent DOOM interview posted a couple of years ago but recorded in 2003: https://soundcloud.com/thehouselistpodcast/ep-100-doom-1

Interesting that Gilles Peterson mentions DOOM was largely ignored on UK hip-hop shows - it was on GPs shows in the early 2000s I heard DOOM, Madlib, Dilla & various other Stones Throw related acts, for which I will always be grateful for the introduction to these artists.

OK FINE. I'll write about the Costco essay

First thoughts: It's aight. I see why she got in places. My biggest negative towards the whole thing was actually how calculated and polished the piece was. Yes, it's a wacky essay about Costco. But to a trained eye, it's the work of a professional writer expertly crafting a work that will make a student come off well. One of the greatest magic tricks we as consultants play is making it seem like we were never there at all. The much rougher version of this type of essay is the essay I can tell a parent wrote. Those tend to be calculated as hell but never polished and usually really bad. This is a much higher level of touch-up.

Or maybe it wasn't! I don't know; perhaps she's just both extraordinarily talented and knows how to professionally craft college work. And hey, she got in. Maybe I should take this as a bit of advice for myself.

Because of that, I'm less interested in giving this piece a grade (8.5. Needs more believable substance in the middle. See notes.) and more diving into what kind of thought process went into making the piece in the first place. I also start doing that editor thing halfway through where I say an essay is good only to then tear it to shreds line by line. Sorry. The doctor says it's incurable.

Take this as an analysis of what I think goes into a top-tier college essay. As well as the type of feedback and advice I tend to give when doing my editing. Spoiler: It's a lot more about strategy than talent.

https://www.businessinsider.com/high-school-senior-who-got-into-5-ivy-league-schools-shares-her-admissions-essay-2016-4

Prompt 1: Some students have a background, identity, interest, or talent that is so meaningful they believe their application would be incomplete without it. If this sounds like you, then please share your story.

Managing to break free from my mother's grasp, I charged. With arms flailing and chubby legs fluttering beneath me, I was the ferocious two year old rampaging through Costco on a Saturday morning.

This, students, is what we call a "hook." A hook is a way of starting a piece of writing by presenting ongoing events immediately, live, as if the reader were an onlooker in the store themselves. The goal is to create intrigue and excitement by jumping right into the action before explaini

The Vietnamese language used in the game, rated by a Vietnamese person. Part 1: Units

Inspired by this post, I have decided to make a table of the Vietnamese words, phrases and such used for units, techs and buildings when the game language is set to Vietnamese. I like to believe this is an unexplored topic on here, but I will give a preemptive apology here if someone has already written a post about it

At first I thought I could cram in everything in one post, then I look back and realise how long I have already gone with just the units 11. So this one will be just that: all the units on the tech tree (so no Xolotl Warriors or Dismounted Konniks... for now)

I recognize that this is a weird and totally-not-gameplay-related topic, but I have a lot of fun with this game and want to express my love for it. So this is how I will do it, since I suck at MP haha

So I hope this will be a fun read, and have a wonderful weekend! Part 2 will come soon, maybe next week, maybe next day, maybe next hour... I haven't decided yet

P.S. Some of y'all might have switched the game language to Vietnamese out of curiousity, and noticed that many instances of <y> in names are <i> in my post. Vietnamese treats <i> and <y> very interchangeably with only a few rules, so I tend to use <i> at all times unless preceded by <qu>, as <quy> sounds closer to <uy> than <qui> to <ui>

Unit Vietnamese term Translation of the Vietnamese term into English My thoughts
Militia Dân binh literal
Man-at-Arms Quân binh literal
Long Swordsman Lính gươm dài literal, "soldier with a long sword" This one broke the Sino-Vietnamese streak of its unit's previous 2 stages, while failing to convey the "swordsman" part like its 2 upgrades below will do. I think using "Kiếm sĩ" (lit. swordsman) would work here given that longswords are not well-known in Vietnam anyway
Two-Handed Swordsman Song thủ kiếm sĩ literal
Champion Kiếm sĩ vô địch literal, "invincible swordsman"
Spearman Lính giáo literal
Pikeman Lính mác literal
Halberdier Lính kích literal
Eagle Scout Lính do thám đại bàng literal This translation is a little too literal IMO, and not able to convey the meaning of "eagle warrior that scouts". It fits with the "Warrior" structure though
(Elite) Eagle Warrior Chiến binh đại bàng (siêu cấp) literal
Archer Cung thủ literal
Crossbowman Nỏ binh literal

Confessions of a Recovering Nice Guy

Hey Moonhorse. I love your channel. I like the way you tell stories, and I’d like for you to tell mine if you want to. It’s about my journey out of the kneckbeard mindset. Honestly, I could write a whole book about this that would bury Scott Pilgrim for eternity, but I’ll give you the short version. It starts kind of light, but I’m gonna get pretty deep with it, so I might pour a drink if I were you.

At the time, I was your typical internet role playing, cargo shorts wearing, its-not-cartoons-its-anime nice guy. I liked beer, cigarettes, Chinese food, hentai, and not much else. I didn’t have a personality beyond the media I consumed and a festering bog of depression and anxiety. I had no idea how to dress or groom myself and I brushed my teeth little enough to make my dear uncle Moonhorse gag. One of my favorite t-shirts was from Walmart and featured a wolf howling at a full moon. It was pretty bad.

I met my best friend when I was 20. She showed up at a mutual friend’s 420 party with a rich white kid on a $4,000 monthly allowance. The type that drives through the suburbs bumping Gucci Mane on the way to the neo-confederate manufacturing center otherwise known as “private Christian College in the South”. He was playing metal this time, which I later learned was a song she was showing him. This was Jax, at the time known by many as The Jackal. She had pixie cut pink hair and a goth ravergirl outfit that could turn a saint into a pagan. You’d think I would’ve been stricken, but I was such an edgelord that my brain said “player two has entered the arena”. I immediately switched the conversation to what obscure black metal I was listening to, and she asked me if I’d ever heard Polkadot Cadaver. I talked about the wild parties and massive bonfires we had out in the country, she regaled us with a tale of going nuts in a warehouse while a dj laid down the law. We were toe to toe, evenly matched, stoned out of our minds and locked in the ancient duel of the edgy goth kid.

But then she busted out the big guns. A joke about eating babies. The fucking nuclear bomb of edgelord cringe.

Somehow, I managed a riposte and narrowly escaped with my head, “Do you eat yours with ketchup or mustard?”

And she chuckled and said, “Barbecue sauce!”

We shared a genuine laugh and our first joke. That was the spark of our friendship and my immense crush on her. I didn’t see her for a while besides on Facebook, but we met again at some asshole’s apartment. I’m not calling him an

Need new music

Hello everyone,

I'm currently updating my playlist and I'm looking for recommandations.

I don't have "a" favorite artist and usually will only buy one or two songs that I really like from each artist/album. My playlist usually consist of about 150 songs I'm really into. I just shuffle my playlist and not skip any songs until it is over.

I was brought into music in the years 2005 and really enjoyed metalcore/emo such has Bullet for my Valentine and Avenged Sevenfold which I still listen to. I really enjoy when the song has a darkish feel but also has fast/hype beat

Songs I really enjoy currently are: heathens - twenty one pilots, drug in me is you - falling in reverse, believer - imagine dragons, conquistador - thirty seconds to mars, cynics and critics - icon for ire, all i want - a day to remember, rap god - eminem, another way out - hollywood undead, emperors new clothes - panic at the disco, the show - since october, my demons - starset, pretty handsome awkward - the used, bad guy - billie eilish.

I already went through the entire library of the artist mentionned above so no need to mention songs from them.

TLDR: looking for new songs. Like metal/emo/pop with upbeat.

Latino Pantheon (idea for a new pantheon)

¿What could be a Latino pantheon?

So to start, when i talk about a Latino pantheon, I’m not proposing an umbrella term for other pre-Hispanic religion that aren’t in the game (examples like Aztec ,Mapuche ,Guarani); that’s not the intend with this rather different pantheon.

If you are from a Latino country something that most countries have “mitos y leyendas” which means myths and legends in Spanish; but when talking about this “mitos y leyendas”, latinos usually don’t mean about myths from their indigenous ancestor; the creatures and entities that appear under this term are beings created from the syncretism between the various aboriginal beliefs, African slave beliefs and Catholicism, a lot of this creatures come specifically from post-colony times and are part of foundation myths of South Americans country, they could be compared to entities like the yokai from the Japanese, but the people who study a lot of this beings as cultural phenomenon of the Latino identity usually compared to other similar beliefs like Voodoo. A lot of this folk creatures do have big cultural impacts as national patrimony to some countries, and are still believed to exist in rural areas of those countries (a lot of them even have statues on their honor)

¿But using the term Latino can be generalizing?

This is point is where one interesting about this creatures comes into play; a lot of them are shared by multiples countries, yeah sometimes the story has little changes depending on the country, but they are still depicted in the same way. The best and most well-known example of this is La Llorona, it’s possible that you may have heard of her before; but something interesting of her as myth is that she is present all Latino America as part of common folks; for example in Mexico she is considered national patrimony, but in other countries La Llorona is very tied up to their identity as much to the Mexican, and not even that, both the story and the appearance of La Llorona are always very similar to each other, she is always represented as the ghostly figure of mother with skull as a head (a common motif on a lot of Latino legends), her lore always been is of the spirit of mother eternally looking for their child and her cries disturb people from villages. But this aspect of been shared by almost all Latino America is not unique to La Llorona, of courses there some cases of myths that are exclusive to individual countries, but a lot of them are usually shared between a

Chasing Ponce de Leon's phantom

So I've been listening to this new album...about as much as you guys are. I try to figure out the visuals in my head on this song of "when" he's describing and I keep coming back to that line. Is this kinda like a NIN - Dead Souls situation where he's talking conquistadors? Or is it a call to the fountain of youth that the warrior is seeking?

PRRD ushers new age: a world without death

MANILA, Philippines, Province of China--Amidst corona virus pandemic, humanity has now achieved "immortality" as Pres. Rodrigo Duterte shared a rather vulgar yet potent phrase in one of his late night shows.

"Putang ina ka umalis ka diyan, may hinihintay ako na vaccine," were the words, according to Pres. Duterte, that will ward off death from anyone who utters it.

Other than blessing the world with immortality, the 75-year-old president has also served 46 years as lawyer, nine years prosecutor, 23 years mayor, 3 years vice mayor, and 3 years congressman, turned Davao City from a warzone into a liveable, highly urbanized city, cleanest and safest city, etc. ctto.

In a presscon, Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque explained that the phrase is only useful to those who have sworn allegiance to Pres. Duterte.

"Simply saying the words will not grant its powers. You have to swore allegiance to the flag and President Duterte as your personal lord and savior. Hindi ito tatalab sa quarantine violators, dilawan, NPA, government critics, Joseph Morong, and Triciah Terada... especially you Trish," said Roque.

Philippine folk wisdom and medicine

In a race to develop COVID-19 vaccine, medical experts started to look into traditional wisdom and medicine to fight against the deadly virus.

Earlier this April, the Rajesh Koothrappali Pandemic Research Institute in Mumbai reported to have developed a vaccine derived from ancient ayurvedic medicine. However, it failed human trials as the midichlorians reacted violently to the human FOX-P2 gene.

Compared to India's ayurveda, Philippines' traditional medicine is thousands of years younger when barred from further developments by the arrival of the Spanish conquistadors in 1521.

Ancient texts and rituals were erased from the consciousness of the indigenous population, luckily, several Spanish records by early friars resurfaced in several convent libraries in Madrid.

In his book, Barangay: Sixteenth-Century Philippine Culture and Society, William Henry Scott explained that the islands' precolonial society understood the universe not as different realms coinciding but a unitary plane populated by beings of different dimensions.

"Precolonial deities were beings contacted by the babaylan through language, transcending the human plane," wrote Scott.

A similar belief is in "An Asuwang: A Bikol Belief," a anthropological study by Jesuit priest Francis Lynch. In this text, Lynch wrote that there were phrases uttered

An animated show from the 80s about kids exploring South America.

There was an episode with a tribe who made everything from reeds. I think the main characters were like a teenage boy and girl.

I remember there was a song for the intro.

One episode had a giant metal bird. I think it was a giant condor.

The setting might have been in the time of conquistadors.

Writing Prompts 20/20 Contest - Round 1 Entry

This was my entry for the first round of the 20/20 contest, based on This Image here!


Through crashing waves, the frigid steel prow of the HMS Innsmouth continued to plow through the churning desolation of the North Atlantic. Rocking and rolling, the ocean spat and boiled as if in a grand cauldron. White caps and endless foam, constant spray drenched many of the men wandering the deck, on constant lookout for their designated prey.

The HMS Innsmouth was in deadly pursuit. A German U-Boat had surfaced further south, sinking a commercial liner carrying ammunition and supplies to the besieged British Isles. Most destroyers in the North Atlantic existed solely to hunt down U-Boats, and curb the terror experienced by vessels unlucky enough to find themselves stranded and lost, away from their protective convoy. Such a duty did little to assuage the anxieties of the men themselves, who often thought of their ships as grim steel coffins, waiting for wolf packs of German submarines to surface and fire their torpedos in the dead of night.

Jamie stood on the deck, watching the waves rise and fall. The ocean undulated, hinting at a dark and cruel nature. He’d escaped Dunkirk to now be trapped in this new assignment, though he never kept his rifle far from his grasp. It was reassuring to hold. Ahead, he watched a low and fast approaching obstacle, a strange and mysterious thing to come on so suddenly and so late in the day. He shivered slightly at the oncoming wall of fog, impenetrable and thick. It stretched, boundless, to either horizon. Jamie’s friend, Douglas, muttered something vaguely Scottish. Probably some kind of curse, or a prayer. It was difficult to tell with men like him.

The vessel relentlessly sliced through the sea, the wind picking up and beginning to whistle and roar. Not a storm, but something else, something that sent many a superstitious crew to turn around and race in the other direction. Not the Royal Navy, apparently. They played a game of cat and mouse where the mouse would dive into the depths, or turn around and attack in a surprise maneuver. Either way, Jamie hated it. He hated the sea, the smell, the salt, the waves, the inability to ever remain dry. The cold that gnawed at his bones, the weariness and pervasive boredom spiced with an incessant terror.

There was something unnatural abou

IMPORTANT NOTES

  • Kick off the COO of WWE, the cerebral assassin, the game, Jean Paul Levesque, Terra Ryzing, Triple H, and Bald Bull Shawn Michaels is there too. Hunter says 25 years is a lot of time to climb a mountain but you do it because it's the deadliest in the world and that he and Shawn should be at the summit right now. However an avalanche fell on them afterwards made them wonder if the mountain was just a lie this whole time. He says that respect is a word thrown a round a lot but today but to him it meant something to him and that he saved that word for people who fought with him for years. Shawn says that for the past eight years he was retired out of respect but when he stepped off the plane in Chicago Hunter asked him three words. Are you ready? Triple H says the question isn't for Shawn, it's for Undertaker and Kane at Crown Jewel. Shawn tells the Brothers Destruction that he says it with no respect that they have two words for them, Suck-It. The DX theme plays and Hunter and Shawn do the DX poses.

  • After the match Lashley is instructed by Lio to continue attacking Owens which he does by picking apart his legs, wrapping them around the ring post and then gloating about it.

  • Balor and Bayley are interviewed and say that Jinder and Alicia Fox aren't even on the same planet now and can never be focused when they team together. As they are hyping each other up Lio Rush and Bobby walk by and Rush gloat's about Lashley's win. Bobby asks why they're talking about hugs when when he just ripped Owens apart. Lio says with his man's power and the fact that he's the man of the hour, it'll be too sweet.

The United States of America (USA), commonly known as the United States (U.S. or US) or America, is a country consisting of 50 states, a federal district, five major self-governing territories, and various possessions.[g] At 3.8 million square miles (9.8 million km2), it is the world's third- or fourth-largest country by total area[c]. Most of the country is located in central North America between Canada and Mexico. With an estimated population of over 328 million, the U.S. is the third most populous country in the world. The capital is Washington, D.C., and the most populous city is New York City.

Paleo-Indians migrated from Siberia to the North American mainland at least 12,000 years ago.[19] European colonization began in the 16th century. The United States emerged from the thirteen British colonies established along the East Coast. Numerous disputes between Great Britain and the colonies led to the American Revolutionary War lasting between 1775 and 1783, leading to independence.[20] The United States embarked on a vigorous expansion across North America throughout the 19th century—gradually acquiring new territories,[21] displacing Native Americans, and admitting new states—until 1848 when it spanned the continent.[21] During the second half of the 19th century, the American Civil War led to the abolition of slavery in the United States.[22][23] The Spanish–American War and World War I confirmed the country's status as a global military power.

The United States emerged from World War II as a global superpower. It was the first country to develop nuclear weapons and is the only country to have used them in warfare. During the Cold War, the United States and the Soviet Union competed in the Space Race, culminating with the 1969 Apollo 11 mission, the spaceflight that first landed humans on the Moon. The end of the Cold War and collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991 left the United States as the world's sole superpower.[24]

The United States is a federal republic and a representative democracy. It is a founding member of the United Nations, World Bank, International Monetary Fund, Organization of American States (OAS), NATO, and other international organizations. It is a permanent member of the United Nations Security Council.

A highly developed country, the United States is the world's largest economy by nominal GDP, the second-largest by purchasing power parity, and accounts for approximately a quarter of global GDP.[25] The United States is the wor

Absolutely do look for other sources of opinions, this is my personal account with the game, so obviously, others will have different experience, it's all over.


Tried installing on Thursday, but couldn't download because the Store page wasn't working (Insider part went fine) - probably some temporary issue, but to put the whole story. Started working only later, things fine with install. First launching all right, just signing into Xbox multiplayer bugged and had to restart to properly get the sign-in window and permission prompt, was fine after.

First version:

I started with OBS recording for the non-stream test to potentially help the game better determine settings, it gave me Medium graphics settings, which means almost everything turned off. Resolution is tied to desktop, so for example cannot do 1080, even in windowed mode, which gives me biggest size 1366x768 - it's almost as if the game is trying to tell me I shouldn't even play at 1920x*, or not sure what's up with the options. Game benchmark test (needed to play ranked games, so basically game deciding if you have potato performance or not - threshold is 1000), already on stream, succeeded with 1037.4. I left the settings as were defaulted, as I first like to playtest games with what the designers want me to experience.

Went into MP, not too many games, actually literally just a handful, even for spectating, which seemed weird, it was at about midnight GMT on Friday, so was expecting more, especially since others were streaming, and not only the gated bigger streamers. But okay, went into a ranked 1v1, which seemed to play fine, but I'm not an active player, I have much more experience with the game

Silas Watkins fights the Reaper

This Passage is taken from A History of America: Great Men and Failed Men, published in 1956. The book was pulled from stores after selling only 23 copies, when readers discovered a passage describing Abraham Lincoln in not-very-favorable terms that implied America would be better if John Wilkes Booth had acted 5 years earlier. I was ‘lucky’ enough to inherit the book from my grandfather, who himself described the book as an “utter piece of trash, only read it if you want to lose a few brain cells." The following passage concerns a brief history of the Rocky Mountains and the life of one Silas Watkins, who the author described as “a quintessential failure of a human being.” The only critic to ever read the book described this section in particular as “Lies and meaningless balderdash ... nothing more than the delusions of a raving-mad author.”

Many miles west of Denver in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, there is an overgrown dirt trail, beginning at the edge of the Great American Desert, winding many miles through the thick pine forests into the heart of the mountain range, at times plunging down into gorges carved by once-magnificent rivers reduced to muddy streams, or reaching into the sparse shrubbery above the treeline, and finally terminating west of the mountain range near the Utah border. The trail gained prominence in the late 1830s when missionaries traversed the rocky, barren mountains to reach the fertile lands of the Pacific Northwest. However, they quickly decided to move north to Oregon trail, finding that dysentery and Indian raids were preferable to a slow death by starvation while trapped high in the Rocky Mountains. The trail regained prominence during Colorado’s gold rush due to a number of lucrative mines located along the trail. It became a bustling route, wide enough to fit two wagons, with a number of camp towns along the way for the young men mining the mountains to rest, drink at one of the boisterous saloons, and perhaps spend some “private time” with the notorious women of these camps. However, by the 1880s the trail had once again fallen into disuse due to competition from the transcontinental railroads. A four-month, often lethal journey through the Rocky mountains on foot simply didn’t have the same charm as a four-day trip on the technological wonder of the iron horse. By the turn of the century, the trail had all but disappeared, the Colorado wilderness devouring the camp-towns and leaving behind a few lonely ghost tow

[Progress] Just clearing out the backlog with smaller games this month.

Hallo,

Hope everyone is staying safe from the situation out there thesedays. I've been stuck at home, so lots of gaming time and no real work to do.

Last month's progress report;

So, this month I got through 15 games, but I'm reviewing 17 today. If you make it through, huzzah! :)

  • February last minute completion

I finished one game after I made my February report, that's why I've left this month's report so late.

  • Expeditions: Viking
  • Steam
  • Genre: Turn based RPG
  • Rating: 7/10 Good.
  • Completion: 20

The second game in the Expeditions series, these games have two key factors;

Firstly, they are phenomenal role-playing experiences. Secondly, they provide average gameplay experiences.

That’s been my experience of the series so far, both Vikings and the first game Conquistador, are great games if you’re into RPGs where you jump in and immerse yourself into the lore, history and time period.

Viking, like its predecessor Conquistador, does not downplay the barbarism present in the time period. The major conflict is over religion, the story takes place in the time where Catholicism was taking off and the old world of paganism was dying. Being Vikings, you can imagine what they got up to.

Often, you are encouraged to liberally spill blood. Very often, it is of monks and nuns and indeed, children. Many dialogue options are centred around aggressive dick-waving, repaying any insults to your honour with death and more death. It is glorious and it really gets you in the mindset of a Viking raider.

The storyline presents you as newly appointed Thane of Skjern; your father having died raiding. He has also neglected his home politically and militarily, so you have the job of cleaning up your internal power struggles and batting off external Viking invaders.

There are two parts to the story; The first taking place in Denmark serves as a tutorial, and has you consolidating your home power-base. The second part, sees you raid the north of England and Scotland with impunity as you try to amass power and/or prosperity in order to gain allies to defeat any future political invasions of your lands in Denmark.

You can go either way, try and be a trading type of Viking, or go the typical strength-based warrior of legend and do your own invasion. That’s the beauty of the role-playing experience, dialogue is rich and well researched, conflicts are brutal, religion is at the foref

The trail regained prominence during Colorado’s gold rush due to a number of lucrative mines located along the trail. It had become a bustling route, wide enough to fit two and a half wagons, with a number of camp towns along the way for the young men mining the mountains to rest, purchase alcohol at one of the boisterous saloons, and perhaps spend a little “private time” with the notorious women of these camps. However, by the 1880s the trail had once again fallen into disuse due to competition from the transcontinental railroads.

By the turn of the century, the trail had all but disappeared, the Colorado wilderness devouring the camp-towns and leaving behind a few lonely ghost towns nestled high in the Rocky Mountain.

Overall, the history of the Rocky Mountain trail would not have been anything to note, except the origin of the trail eluded the early settlers of the West. America’s earliest pioneers of the West, the Mountain Men, were more concerned with destroying local beaver populations than recording detailed histories of Western settlement; however, quite a few journals from that period provide insight into the overland routes through the Rocky Mountains, and all point to this dirt trail as an enigma, a trail already well-traveled when the first Mountain Men hadn’t even crossed the entire mountain range yet. Of course speculation was rampant among early settlers about the mystery of the eternal trail. Some believed that Spanish Conquistadors, fresh from conquering the great civilization
