from what i can find online, "lemonade" is derived from the french "limonade", which is derived from "limon". where does that "ade" come from in the jump from limon to limonade? does it refer to drinks? the product of something (limonade = product of lemon)? i can't seem to find anything about it
#Album: Mach’s Hard Lemonade
The elusive Mach-Hommy is something of an enigma in the underground hip hop scene. With a dedicated fan base and support from larger artists such as JAY-Z and Earl Sweatshirt, the New Jersey rapper has released a slew of incredible projects over the last few years, each one full of witty bars, grimy production and inventive song writing. Mach is not afraid to take artistic decisions such as singing, or rapping in a different language on tracks, and he’s also not afraid to ensure his discography is extremely difficult to listen to. This was case once again with his 2020 album ‘Mach’s Hard Lemonade’, released exclusively on TIDAL or as $99.99+ physical copies in early August. The project is only 9 songs and 22 minutes long, however this is a length Mach has proved he works best in time and time again.
Hard Lemonade was released with two, alternate cover arts. The first is an image of an exceptionally gentlemanly looking Mach, with the rapper donning a suit and top hat (as well as the signature bandana covering his face) as he is picking lemons. The other cover is a medieval depiction of an old lemon tree, surrounded by spirits and a lone adventurer, the type of image you’d expect to see on an ancient scroll or tapestry (this style is courtesy of artist Ayis Lertas, and appears on almost all MHL related media).
Album intro ‘SBTM (Sweeney Been Told Me)’ opens with a voice instructing listeners to read along and turn the page, another suggestion that the album is like an ancient book depicting Mach’s words. The track most likely references this 2017 interview with Sweeney Kovar. Almost instantly the beat begins, (with production done by DJ Preservation), and Mach’s... keep reading on reddit ➡

Alkis had a plan. Well less of a plan, and more of an idea. He thought of his recent interactions with others, specifically Andre at his lesson.
Chaos... can't be controlled that's true. It can be harnessed though. If I can figure out how to control my powers, particularly how it affects people and who it affects, then I can control damn near any situation. More importantly, I can prevent it from affecting people who don't deserve it.
Figuring this out would be a difficult process to say the least, as he needed other people. Alkis knew he couldn't just use his power on other people, it would be wrong and immoral. Just terrible. So he decided on something.
Alkis' parents had recently purchased a fridge, and after a confusing phone call from a pay phone, he convinced them to bring it out to camp, leaving it outside at the bottom of the hill. Alkis gathered this box, placing it in between all the cabins and the dining pavilion on its side, setting up two foldable metal chairs, one on each side.
Alkis then focused hard, creating a thick vine on either end of the box, reaching up into the air, two feet above the box. He then manipulated the vines so they would be able to hold the large cardboard rectangle he had sliced out of the bottom of the box, upon which was written: FREE MONEY!
He then sat on the side of the box facing the cabin cluster, opening his notebook and beginning to scribble a rough format. If one looked closely it would list;

Why did FuboTv and Lemonade crash yesterday. JP Morgan goes all-in on travel and Nikola spikes after their report. Let’s talk about this and other stock market news
~Very Long Post~
Hello everyone and Good Morning! So, let’s start with the recap of yesterday, as we saw the broad stock market SP500 leading the way, up .87%, with the Nasdaq Composite also gaining more than .7% and the Dow Jones rising by more than 200 points to finish the day, with all 3 big indexes finishing broadly higher, with all of them also closing at all-time highs, after the relief BILL lifted many stocks, as this bill does include direct payments and unemployment benefits while also including over $300B that will be direct to the small businesses relief funding programs alongside other good programs, like rent assistance, child care, vaccine distribution and others. But despite this great movement in the stock market, we did see the VIX rising by almost 1%, with most factor groups trading lower yesterday, with only large-cap growth companies gaining, while the biggest losers were in the small and mid-caps, especially the growth companies.
Yesterday there was almost a 50/50 split in advancing to declining stocks, with 177 new highs on decent volume, as more companies have started to trade below the 50-day SMA, which is a good thing as the trend was worrying with over 84% of companies above that moving average just recently.
We also saw 9 of the 11 sectors gaining yesterday with communications, consumer discretionary and technology all gaining over 1% for the day while the 2 sectors that lost ground and lagged the market were Energy and Materials.
Here is the HEAT MAP that confirms those charts, as we can see big gains made in the big tech names with Amazon, Facebook and Google all gaining more than 2% for the day with Netflix and Microsoft also posting a 1% gain. We can also see the biggest losers coming in the Software-Application and Biotech sectors, probably because of tons of profit taking after huge-runups this year, while funds want to show investors that they own the big names, not those very volatile high-flying stocks of 2020, maybe that is one of the reasons for this rotation.
We also saw the total peop... keep reading on reddit ➡
Parts of the army already left for their respective castles, but a respectable force still remained, making their way from the Mountains back to the Gates of the Moon.
The troops remained camped outside the old Arryn castle, with the commanders being invited inside.
There was refreshment prepared in the Falcon Tower, medical care provided to those who needed it, and word was sent to the Eyrie, for the Queen and her councillors to descend, and hear reports of what had transpired in the Mountains of the Moon.
