By browsing here it seems that Chopin only wrote Fantaisie impromptu, nocturne op 9 2 and Ballade in g minor; Liszt only La campanella and Liebestraume; Beethoven moonlight and pathetique sonata; Debussy clair de lune and arabesque. Not trying to be offensive with those who post them playing these pieces, but everyday I lurk around here there at least one of those self taught begginers trying to play one of those and it always ends up with horrible playing.
I mean, where are Haydn and Scarlatti sonatas? Chopin mazurkas? Bach fugues? Liszt arrangements? In the past 2 months I don’t recall seeing any of these and it really bothers me, come on, Bach wrote over 1000 works and the only thing I hear in this sub is his prelude in C major, Scarlatti has over 500 sonatas and if I saw someone play one of those was a lot. And I get really mad that I don’t see any Czerny exercises with the of amount of begginers here, they would rather play Fantaisie Impromptu(badly) from synthesia.

If you were to take the existing mechanics of the mainline series and write the story for a mainline game, does anyone have any good story ideas that don't involve the league? Pokemon Colosseum and XD exist, so a good story can come out of a game that doesn't use the league to advance the plot. Does anyone have any ideas that are different from what XD and Colosseum did?
I'm really struggling with not spending every second of my days thinking about my partner, wishing they were texting me, trying to analyze their moods or what they're thinking of my texts; it feels like I'm in withdrawal from their presence every time I'm not with them, and I literally can't care about any other facet of my life if I can't be with them in that moment. I literally get home from spending a day with them and think "Well what's the point now?". It feels like an addiction, I won't be happy unless I'm spending every second with or around them. It bothers me because I know this is just my codependency, and it's even worse because we've only been together 2 months, so this is way too intense to be feeling this way already. And then of course I'm always worried he'll leave me for some dumb thing I've done or said, and I just end up trying to do what I think will make him happiest/like me most.

Over the quarantine I’ve binged quite a few shows but the shows I feel attracted to are mostly ones that heavily are INTJ oriented. In a way it’s like relieving knowing there are people that think like you even though they’re not there and not real while you’re surrounded by people who just don’t get you
For example I’ve watched Black list (even though Raymond is mostly extroverted I feel I can relate in other parts) ,Dexter, The walking dead, Breaking bad, Money heist/la casa de paper, House MD. (Edit: Person of interest,)
I’m sure I’ve watched more that I can’t remember currently but those are just a few
Many players have pointed out that they feel that a majority of the main cast (save for Aldo of course, and sometimes Feinne and Guildna) lack distinct personalities and significant impact on the story. This is no surprise, given that at any point in the story it is almost certain that there are over ten characters present in the scene. This leads to underdeveloped and therefore uninteresting main characters, a sure downside of a game meant to primarily be played for its story, and often quite a few of the gacha-exclusive characters have much more interesting character development through their dedicated quests than the main cast itself. Even in parts of the main story itself, the newly released gacha character has more screentime and development than the original members of the core cast, despite the fact that they are likely going to be pushed to the side as soon as the next story update comes out.

That is what my life is all about. It's all I think about. It's all I strive for. It's all I want in my goals in life.
My first attempt at suicide when I was 6. Fucking 6. I was sitting on a hill with my motor bike (XR 70). I took my helmet off. Jumped on my bike and without really thinking about it, went full speed down the hill towards a parked truck. I closed my eyes and just breathed in all the cool air and dust. I woke up in the hospital with 2 broken arms and a tracheostomy tube cut into my neck.
When I was 8, I made friends with my neighbour. Not because she was a cute girl my age, but because I thought it would be a bad-ass way to die to be killed by her Pit-Bull. As expected from a chained up dog, it attacked me straight away when I went up to it. It got a good hold of my hip bone. The father jumped off the balcony of their 2 story and whipped the dog in the face with his steel cap boots. Pulling me away. The dog never let go. Meaning she got a chunk of me.

There’s this perception that every time someone takes more than half an hour to reply you’re ‘being ghosted’ or ‘she ain’t interested bro’. Granted, all those things can be true, especially at the start of the relationship but there is a clear distinction between people flaking you off, i.e a really unreasonable amount of time between messages where sustaining a conversation becomes impossible or where the excuses are unreasonable. But if people are busy working or hanging out socially, you aren’t owed shit. If there is sometimes a delay but they’re still interested in you, making good convo when they do talk or still going ahead making plans just relax and give them space.
I’m a 25 year old lad from the North of England, and it’s pretty much normality that people around my age drink frequently for any given reason.
Nobody see’s it as a problem because everyone else is doing it but I feel like if I cut it out completely I’ll have little social life. Now you might say, why don’t you just go out and not drink? Well... because I’m pragmatic and I know as soon as everyone around me starts getting a bit pissed I’ll find it impossible to stop myself from getting a drink myself.. and that leads on to another, which leads on to bad decisions and regret 8/10 times.
What I would like to know is if anybody has any advice on how to overcome this? Or if anybody is in the same sort of predicament
I’m frustrated. I’m in a long distance relationship and working from home and am very bored a lot of the time. If I boredom eat I eat too much. If I restrict, which I’ve mostly been successful with eating one meal a day, I spend a lot of my day anticipating the meal, and then I eat so much at once that I often fall asleep right after eating it. It works to keep my calories down but my whole day ends up revolving around food.
This week I have been taking naps to pass the time before my one evening meal. It’s making me depressed. I hate living just to kill time. But my life is so boring and lonely right now that even if I eat I still feel like I’m killing time just with more guilt and self hatred from eating too much.
First off - I'm bisexual and non-binary myself. I'm 21 and have been in the LGBTQ community for over 5 years. So I know what I'm talking about here.
I've been noticing this trend for a long-ass time and finally felt the need to just rant about it. A lot of LGBTQ kids/teens/young adults seem to have this obsession with making their entire lives and personalities revolve around their gender/sexuality.
This can get super irritating and make talking to some of them feel like a chore. They'll constantly go off about "how gay" they feel, how much they just love being gay/trans/etc, or (and this is the most annoying one), how annoying and stupid straight/cis people are. Basically what anyone who knows what Tumblr was like in the mid 2010's the "Tumblr personality". Yes, I'm aware straight people can act like this too. But you know what? It's also annoying as hell when they do it, too. Meaning the reverse is just as annoying.

I've noticed that Revolve and ShopBop will actually raise prices without notice. It's not like a sale has ended and it's not like the items are selling well (all sizes still in stock, none running low). The prices were in place for weeks before and the items are seasonal.
Do we know what the pattern is? These are items I thought would eventually go more on sale so I'm surprised/disappointed to see this.
Like, I’m never having as much fun plating anything but shoothouse and shipment. Most maps are basically “camp or die a lot”. There’s always like 3 dudes vibin in a corner or in some kind of longshot area. Idk just my opinion. The new barn maps pretty cool but eh.
Hi. I have reached a point that I both want and need to stop drinking. As I get blackout drunk more nights than not, I have no doubt that I'm an alcoholic. I'm terrified by the thought of quitting because of I'm not drinking, I don't have a clue what to do with myself.
How do you handle this? I don't really have hobbies. It's way too hot where I live to take up anything outside right now. Something has to replace alcohol though, right?
I've watched The Duke Of Burgundy so damn times because I view it as near perfect representation. But now I'm realizing there has to be other great movies, right? Give me your recommendations! Any genre is fine as long as the main characters are clearly lesbian / sapphic and it's not something that's vaguely hinted at :)
I'm a teenage girl and the majority of teens just want to hookup and base relationships on that.. not all, but asexuality is a very small percentage of the population. Modern dating and hookup culture is really confusing; I don't value looks. I stay away from it all.
People mistake my entire lack of interest for me being a snob, or since I never responded to all the guys, they assume I'm a lesbian. Just proving people don't know about us as much..
Idk for sure, girls have liked me too, but I don't feel anything to anyone. I just thought they were nice.
I have trust issues, and I can't feel the need to do what others do. It would be nice if I could find someone like me, because I haven't. Although we'd be friends at most still.
Sexual attraction never occurred to me and once I found out about asexuality it all made sense. Dragons, our flag colors, cake, all things I loved waaayy before. Oh was I relieved and happy :)

Hi reddit. You may have seen posts from me before about building a world around your backstories. This type of world-building, where the players tell the story and the GM just roleplays how the universe reacts to that story, is something I've fallen in love with. I'm currently running a group of absolutely amazing players through a campaign based on their stories that evolve and change based on their characters. The world is massive, however. Sitting down like Tolkien to create a massive fantasy world is not as easy as it sounds. I think a more exciting way to expand this world is to have another far off adventure between two others, hence this post.
Firstly so I don't waste your time, I'm looking for two very experienced players. Here is what I expect from you- ALL criteria must be met for approval.
-Read the entire post (So many people don't do this it's ridiculous)
-Adept and very comfortable with roleplay covering a wide range from romance and politics to torture and graphic v... keep reading on reddit ➡
I’m actually really curious how invested people on here are when it comes to kpop.
Like are any of you obssesed to the point where all you do is watch/do kpop related things, or do you guys just watch/do kpop related things once in a while. Maybe half half?
For me, I probably spend 1/3 of my day watching and listening to kpop. As a multi stan, there’s always new content to watch so there’s never been a day where I didn’t do something that relates to kpop.
The only reason AOC is idolised is because she is a woman. There are many male politicians better than her that get no credit because being a straight white cisgender male automatically means you're a bigoted ass.
As the title suggests I need some story games that don’t revolve around violence.
Like Night In The Woods or Little Misfortune.
I already played undertale, life is strange, and stardew valley.
Hopefully they would take anywhere from 2-20 hours to complete. Thanks
Heard about this from a friend. Not sure if he was talking about a series or a movie. The movie/show starts in ancient times and there was some sort of war. Apparently there's some sort of coven of witches or demons or something and they get destroyed and their ashes are separated with the caveat that if they come back together, they come back. Well, in modern times, someone finds some of this and puts it back together and those evils start coming back. It sounded interesting but I totally forgot the title or on what streaming service he was referring to. Thank you!
Not Hocus Pocus, TMNT, X-Men Apocalypse, Hellboy. Not an MCU movie. Not "popular". Not Hellraiser, El Dead or Goosebumps. Not a children's show/movie. Not Cabin in the Woods.
The person who puts the artifact together (I think it was like molecules of dirt and he finds some of the dirt and shifts it together) does so inadvertently.
The "artifact" could simply be dirt or dust or ashes.
I feel like the situation that America is in regarding COVID is the only logical progression after "allowing" faith to be such a pervasive aspect of life for so long. I am frustrated with democrats and those that have enabled these beliefs. This feels like such a Leopards Ate My Face moment for everybody that has insisted that we treat people who literally believe in magic and sky men as if their beliefs are valid contributions to society or worthy of consideration. And now that all of these people (not saying that it is just religious people, but I'd bet money on it there being a correlation) are saying "we don't believe in the science for that, sucks for your lives and safety", the same people who call atheists edgy are now looking like a shocked pikachu. I definitely toe the line of anti-theism, and it is situations like this that continuously push me over the edge.
Its interesting to see that despite the culture of backstabbing, betrayal, and general untrustworthiness in the Tower, the weight behind bets, games, or promises seem to be taken very seriously. A few examples:

For who'd like to binge-watch all of the 8 episodes, here is the playlist of the series: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9UvPa8vlXxQ&list=PLKrLe4Yrt1xW6DUuDovuGo7ijtEJ3qoW-
The mini-series takes place in the 50th century, where humanity takes many shapes. Biologically and conceptually.
In the last episode, it is finally revealed who is the anonymous contractor that gave the mercenary group the mission to acquire a mysterious box from a hi-tech R&D company. They had to assault and loot the space carrier. Further ahead, they had to fight for it in the Jovian moon Amalthea and in the Asteroid Belt, to carry it to a specific place.
To the mercenaries was given some coordinates that lead them to a derelict space structure, an Egg-world. Which fits as a meeting point to showcase the technology that the box contains. Tavis One is an O'Neil structure that has the form of an egg. It served v... keep reading on reddit ➡
Hey all! I’m looking to read some fictional books with Black characters/written by Black authors that don’t focus on slavery or the Civil Rights movement.
I’m an 18 year old gay guy. I’ve never been in a relationship with anyone before, let alone kissed or had sex with anyone. But the thought of having anal sex is really uncomfortable for me to think about. All of my friends who are gay and my age have already been on Grindr and hooked up with countless random guys and I just want nothing to do with that. When they date people they always talk about their penises or how hot they are and never once mention things they do together other than sex. I’m scared I will never be able to get into a relationship with another guy because sex isn’t the main thing I care about. I don’t know if this makes any sense and I truthfully don’t mean to offend anyone! I’m just worried about my future that’s all :/
I mean, there are so many well-know cases of this. Transformers, the old Sonic cartoons, even Steven Universe was prone to this. All of these have human characters that are almost always hated by the audience, usually because these characters don't do anything cool, and their plotlines come off as filler most of the time.
I remember borrowing this from a teacher in middle school. It was a compilation of the first 3 books in a series, and was made sometime in the 90s or early 2000s, way before Disney's 7-9 trilogy. So I'm not sure which plot details are from which book. The Empire had a new Sith leader, who wanted to possess control of Darth Vader's glove, as the one who could would be Vader's successor or something. He wasn't able to handle the glove's immense power, so he instead wore a fake glove in order to convince others he was worthy.
I also remember that Han and Leia got together and bought a house in Cloud City, which was able to be moved, specifically to get away from the city's pollution, referred to as "braze".
I also think the Sith leader went blind at one point, and required the assistance of a Gungan healer.
If you have any idea what specific series this was, please let me know as I'd be interested in reading it again. Thanks in advance.
I already have one but it sounds soooooo good in my Parisian apartment (high walls so it echoes a tiny bit but it makes the sound extra good).
As I know two bose revolve pluses can be paired I’d love to buy another one!
Do you guys think it’s a good idea?
My feeling is since we kinda forced Chara to watch us kill everyone they ever knew and corrupting them to the point of what they become by the end of the no mercy run. I think them possessing us by the end of deltarunr means they will put us through the same date, we watch and dodge attacks but they make all the choices for us and control the fight
I have to constantly remind myself that it's NOT ABOUT THE QUESTIONS but about the anxiety in my brain that makes these questions feel scary and unbearable.
I know because I've been through these cycles multiple times. When my brain calms down again, those questions will return to their rightful place as legitimate and interesting questions, but not triggers for panic.
As I see I have offended many people and as I am not fluent I don't know how to change my title. I would like to clarify. Why do most Americans on social media seem to think everything in world revolves around America. Apologies in advance, offending anyone wasn't my motive. I was just angry/mad at stupid attacks.
So my yt has lot of American content. Philly d etc. On a non political channel, I said when this is all over(pandemic) I would like to move to either Germany or New Zealand. I was immediately attacked by American right wingers. Saying how Trump has the best policies and Jacinda Aardern is a shit leader and I should get out of CNN rabbit hole and such. I explained that I am not American and haven't ever seen CNN but that Karen just kept going. She called me lefty nut, abortion loving, Chaz enthusiast, Bernie simp. Why do most Americans think everything revolves around them.
When Zamasu asks Zuno how long it takes the Super Dragon Balls to work after one wish, he says it takes one year (the lifespan of a cockroach). That year seems to be focused around Earth time, a fact that confuses me when other planets have different year spans. Take Namek for example, where one year was 130 days. A Namekian would be waiting about 3 of their own years to get their wish granted. Why was that the decision from the author, and why did Zamasu not ask for a specific number of days he would have to wait?
Hey fellow reader !! I am not sure if this question has been asked before so please forgive me if it sounds repetitive.
Like the title says, I am looking for a book whose story line revolves around the French Revolution. It could be fiction, nonfiction or classic. I want to know how to lives of people were during french revolution. I love the idea of a book in which the plot and the main characters are heavily influenced by the revolution.
ps- I have already read A Tale of Two Cities so please avoid mentioning that.
It's hard to remember the last time I did anything without my parents tagging along. Most of my life has been 95% about them.
Every story deals with problems of some kind, of course, that's just the nature of drama. But those two movies are specifically about figuring out solutions, as opposed to being about interpersonal relationships or physical confrontations.
The primary action of the plot involves doing the math or figuring out solutions to problem after problem, watching the protagonists wrestle with an obstacle and figure out a solution so they can move forward.
Any other movies you'd recommend like that? (Doesn't have to be about astronauts, btw.)
Yesterday at work (I'm an industrial electrician) we had a safety meeting and they mentioned how last year someone left out a chemical in a parking garage they were working on and a four year old thought it was juice and drank it and was hospitalized for weeks and barely survived. They then went on to mention how much money this costed our employers from lawswuits... And I'm the only one sitting here thinking a four year old just almost died and all you're thinking about is money.... Fucking animals.
I’d like to read more books with complex women characters whose life doesn’t revolve around babies or pleasing the men in their life. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance!
