Tony does equate love with money, so does Carmella. Not totally, but marginally and in different ways.
Tony can’t find a woman he enjoys hanging around with long term other than Carmella. Specifically, look at season 5 episode 11. Tony wants to have sex with these hot, seductive women. Outside of that he treats women like they’re a chore to converse with.
Ralph’s ex Gooma is in the other room shouting from the other room about some picturesque holiday destination where the breeze is the same temperature as your skin. Tony says something like “Didn’t I tell you I hate this shouting from across rooms shit!?”.
If his maid in the beach house was even a 5/10 he might humour her with a flirt. Instead he roasts her about throwing out the paper of that day as she haggles for her job reminding him she cooked homemade enchiladas.
“This thing of ours” Tony’s grief for men the likes of Big Pussy might not be fully empathised with by most viewers with the gravity it’s meant to hold. The allure of organised crime as its portrayed in pop culture is the romanticised bond between members; the first act or two in Goodfellas. Tony puts himself in mortal danger and so does everyone else involved, really to be able to hang around the guys they enjoy being in the company of.
Carmella is the only woman Tony has where after all these years of marriage and kids, he can still call her up post-whitecaps and talk shit, joke, laugh. She still nags him, breaks his balls with “women” things, but Tony remedies the things he dislikes about Carmella with Jewelry, coats, cars, houses. It’s his way of saying “Deshpite the headache you give me, I Shtill Love you.”. Carmella, if she truly wanted to be loved for who she is, she wouldn’t be materialistic.
This is no mere conjecture but is, in fact, made all but explicit by the Dr. Suess' original opening:
The kids weren't alone that cold rainy day./ As Mother was leaving, she passed Dad on the way./ He lay on the couch, taking a nap/ "While I watch these kids?" She thought, "Fuck that!"//
"You watch them for once/ You bald, lazy bastard/ I'm going out clubbing/ I'm gonna get plastered!"//
"Ok," Dad said, "you dried up old biddy/ You go have fun, I'll watch the kiddies./ In fact they'll enjoy it (if they survive)/ I'm high as a kite! Let's go for a ride!"//
I remember someone in a TV program about classical music mentioning that a certain woodwind instrument is often used as personification of death in symphonies and other big orchestral pieces. I think it might have been an oboe. But now I can't find any sources for this statement. Does anyone know more about this?
I was going through my playlist like a few minutes ago and thought about what songs could fit the RWBY cast. So I chose a couple and here’s the results:
Ruby: Love Train - O’Jays
Weiss: Uptown Girl - Billy Joel
Blake: I Am A Rock - Simon and Garfunkel
Yang: I Get Around - Beach Boys
Jaune: Oh Lonesome Me - Don Gibson
Nora: Together Forever - Rick Astley
Pyrrha: Unforgettable - Nat King Cole
Ren: Overkill - Men At Work
Oscar: 21st Century Schizoid Man - King Crimson
Qrow: Paranoid - Black Sabbath
Penny: Mr. Roboto - Styx
Ozpin: Dreamer - Ozzy Osbourne

Think about it.
Kirk is an above average player who is much better than people think he is. He consistently puts up numbers that are better than his peers, and always does just enough to instil hope in fans. The thing with Kirk is that he has whacky implosions that seem to come at the worst times. These implosions leave people hopeless until he comes back and has a performance like yesterday where that glimpse of hope returns.
The Vikings are an historically above average team that win a lot more than people think they do (6th all time in win %). Outside of a few dud seasons, they have consistently been a competitive franchise that fans can put their hope and faith in. However, like Kirk, the Vikings implode at the worst times possible, leaving a lot of us fans wondering what the fuck is the point. As soon as we’re on the brink of apathy toward the team after so much disappointment and heartbreak, they come back and give us that sweet sweet taste of hope; just like Kirk.
Kirk is us. We are Kirk.
I didn't know who you were at first
All those years ago
Like a best friend
My very companion
Attaching to myself
Always going wherever I was
Telling me things
Getting into my head
Never making sense
Oh, but you'd be dressed in yellow
You'd be brighter than a thousand suns
From chair to chair
Never keeping still
Exploding with energy
Enough to last you until 7AM
And then you'd wear blues and blacks
How can you change so quickly?
"I know I'm unloveable, you don't have to tell me," you sing.
You'd have drinks in your hand
Drinks lining your
Never knowing how much is too much
So you tell me.
You're red with your crazy hair
From being pulled out so hard
Seething rage festers for hours
And all of a sudden
It's a trigger
Everything is burning
In the worst way possible
Until there's nothing left
People love you
They think you're fun
You're so bright
But I wish you weren't such a problem
I am utterly ashamed of you
You act like my friend
You've never left me
Even when you never failed to make me believe
That no one will ever be here to stay
Words so loud
I can't quiet you
You hurt me
Take advantage of me
I love you for it,
I hate you for it.
You say I can't be with anyone else but you
You've destroyed so much
I've lost so much
And it's all because of you.
I love them with every fiber of my soul one moment,
I absolutely, entirely hate them the next
I love with obsession
I hate with passion
And it's all because of you.
You always yank me one way or another
Always forcing me to go on that rollercoaster
It's like your personality
Despite you not having one.
I always wonder why you're like this
But then I remember you
Being left outside the doors of your home
But there was no one.
And yet still,
I hate that you're like this
I hate what you turn me into
I hate what I've become
And it's all because of you.
I have thought that vegans try to personify animals. I don't want to talk about that they use words like "non-humane woman" or something highly personified.
What I want to say is easy: they just try to show only happy animals like living peacefully in their sanctuary, and they say as if those animals are highly social. However, I think that they're attempting to pick out only pictures they want.
Except vegans, we know that animals can be highly dangerous, and they're even hard to control a human criminal. For instance, pigs can bump somebody without any notice. Cows are rather safer than pigs, but still able to attack a person. Even some vegan sanctuary twitter or facebook pages say that those pigs and cows tried to attack a person they don't know, and they wrote it as if it's something they should be boastful of while it's something we should pay heed to. If you study history, dealing with wild animals was something really difficult, and it was challenging. A lot of people died because wild animal attacked them.
I think that it's rather not organised, but what I want to say is that: Vegans usually say that those animals are sociable, and they have deep relationship with them, and they also say that they also kind to anybody. Those vegans also say that they're also moral like humans while there's no evidence.
In conclusion, I think that they think that we're living in the world which some pre-school kids' animations which some animal characters are in, and they think that animals are really good. They've also tried to find an evidence that those animals are moral like humans. However, they take no notice of that animal attack, and try to teach children something ideal which doesn't work in the reality.
I don't know it can be an attempt to normalise all of vegans. However, I think that some vegans who speak loud are like what I told you.
Today is the greatest day of my life. Tomorrow will be exponentially better. My demon's name is Abigail. (Don't say it three times or she appears, I think.) Once I designated my apartment a positive energy zone, I started making Abigail wait outside. I turned up my music a little too loud and cleaned my kitchen. I shaved my face and took a cold shower and put on a nicer shirt than the holey band tee I'd been rotting in all weekend. I held myself accountable. I built myself a sanctuary. I praised myself. This is my head. This is my home. This is my heart. These are my feelings. Noone can love me like me. I'm a machine.
Personify your demon.
Last night I made a post talking about what songs resemble the main characters. I had a lot of fun so I’m doing it again, this time for the antagonists. Which was a little bit more difficult to pull off. But I made these results:
Salem: Who Wants To Live Forever - Queen
Cinder: King Nothing - Metallica
Emerald: Enter Sandman - Metallica
Mercury: Johnny B. Goode - Chuck Berry
Torchwick: Renegade - Styx
Neo: Killer Queen - Queen
Tyrian: Dead Man’s Party - Oingo Boingo
Hazel: Rasputin - Boney M.
Watts: Virtual Insanity - Jamiroquai
Adam: In The Ghetto - Elvis Presley
Raven (Kind of a villain): Civil War- Guns ‘n Roses
Like before I want to see the songs you would pick for the characters or if you need help understanding why I chose a certain song!
I've always loved discovering the reasons why we do certain things, so I wanted to know why I've been doing something for about a year now. I have names and personalities centered around my emotions. They take a part in everything from small decisions to life-changing ones.
To elaborate, Emmet is the name of my 'sociopathic' side. I see him as the person that controls the emotions that are immoral and sometimes straight up illegal. He has been the most interactively dominant one as of recently, which is causing me some concern. He enjoys manipulating, hurting, and toying with others, and though I can control every action he does, I feel no guilt when he is fronting. (Note: I'm 99.99% sure I don't have DID (Dissociative Identity Disorder), but since I don't have any other words to use for what I feel, I use the vocabulary that a victim of DID would use.) Emmet takes control in situations where I'm anxious, stressed, or agitated, causing me to become almost emotionless and unable to react to certain things.
Another one of my alters (another DID word) is Brian. He is the first alter that was introduced into my chaotic head. He's practically an amplified version of my personality, but he has much more confidence and does things that I'd normally not be able to do (Ex. Socializing, flirting, etc.). He takes control in situations where I can't stand up for myself easily. He's also the one I "talk" to when I'm bored.
I also have a little that appears whenever she feels like it. Her name is Lyra, and when she fronts, I tend to act like a little kid (hence the title 'little'). Almost all of my dominant energy as my friend calls it disappears.
I have one last guy living in my head. This alter doesn't have a specific name because he keeps telling us to call him baby, but if you've watched Ouran Highschool Host Club, he's pretty much an exact copy of Tamaki. He's a big flirt and takes any chance he can get to compliment a girl or tell a cheesy pick-up line to one of my friends. He's the most extroverted one out of all of us.
I should also note that an ex-friend of mine has experienced this too. For the sake of her identity, I won't say her or her alters' names, but she told me I was too deep in the game I created when I told her of how much my alters interfere in my daily life. (To elaborate, Brian was originally supposed to be an OC of sorts that represented the irrationality of my brain. My friend eventually created someone that represented her brain... keep reading on reddit ➡
I find that I’m doing and in certain towns, especially when I’m alone that I will refer to inanimate things as buddy or guy. And when something isn’t acting the way it supposed to And malfunctions or acts kind of funky, I will legitimately curse it out as though it is trying to piss me off
