Ideas on how to repurpose my late Father’s (cremated) titanium knee. Just carrying out his wishes. When he got it I quoted the John Prine lyric “Give my knees to the needy” and he said he wanted me to repatriate this from the undertaker and do something memorable. He was a character. Miss you Pops.

Stuck

Jacklyn rummages through the trunk of her car, checking on her weapon cache and other equipment, the moonlight providing visibility. She opens a duffle bag filled with stuff she had hastily packed before leaving and checks the contents. Extra clothes, a few packs of cigarettes, lighter fluid, spare glasses, contact fluid… the hell is this doing here? Jacklyn pulls out a butterfly knife with pink-striped black handles and an anodized titanium blade.

 

She sighs as she slowly pries the handles apart to reveal the blade, before giving it a few flips as she shuts the trunk of her car. She leans back on the edge of the trunk as she continues to idly flip the balisong.

 

Jacklyn closes her eyes and begins to softly sing the lyrics to a song under her breath. As the song becomes more lively, Jacklyn begins to dance around the area with slow, calculated moves while flipping the knife. When the song ends, she opens her eyes and leans back on her car.

 

Jacklyn continues to flip the knife, deep in thought. If any campers were on a midnight walk, they would find her standing in front of camp next to her car, idly flipping a butterfly knife.

DAILY SONG DISCUSSION 83: Titanium

Hey fellow Bastille fans, here is another daily song discussion, which is exactly what it sounds like. I’ll post a song every day and we can discuss the ins and outs, from lyrics to personal stories, the meaning and intention of the song, video clip and more. So please tell what makes this song special for you, what is so good about it, and maybe even why it was written. I’m looking forward to your stories!

Song: Titanium

Year: 2012

Album: Other People's Heartache

YouTube link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yomVFsWqTZw

Lyrics:

"How many drivers does a buggy have?
One
So let's just say, I'm driving this buggy
And if you fix your attitude, you can ride along with me
Okay
You shouted loud
But I can't hear a word you say
I'm talking loud, not saying much
I'm criticized, but all your bullets ricochet
You shoot me down, but I get up
I'm bulletproof, nothing to lose
Fire away, fire away
You shoot me down, but I won't fall
I'm titanium
You cut me down, but it's you who'd have further to fall
Ghost town and haunted love
You raise your voice, sticks and stones may break my bones
I'm talking loud not saying much
I'm bulletproof
Nothing to lose
Fire away, fire away
You shoot me down, but I won't fall
I'm titanium
Now you will see me one more time... if you do good
You will see me two more times... if you do bad
You shouted loud, but I can't hear a word you say
I'm talking loud not saying much
I'm criticized, but all your bullets ricochet
You shoot me down, but I get up
I'm bulletproof nothing to lose
Fire away, fire away
You shoot me down, but I won't fall
I'm titanium
Goodnight

Univer7 - Chapter 4

A/N: I've managed to wrangle myself another week on the tour. So chapter five is coming along nicely. I Hope you enjoy.

First Previous

Chapter 4

The airlock had barely finished cycling after the transport left the homestead, before Anna tore into the workshop. There, on one of the grav-lifts, stood her hull. The floor was littered with packed parts, neatly stacked in piles by someone who had no idea in which order they were needed or what function they served.

Anna grabbed a boxcutter and went to town, Sandrine walked back to the residential building and made more coffee.

When the sun rose, the workshop floor was a mess, an organised mess, but a mess nonetheless. Parts and components were littered everywhere and Anna was climbing through the hull, serenely humming along to the old music that Mike favored.

Apparently the band had picked their name based on how they initially had expected their music to be received. "Gonna make you sweat, gonna make you groove." She bellowed when the lyrics hit a part she knew.

"What are you doing?" Her mother's voice rang over the music.

"Double checking the systems and wiring that is already in place."

"How are you keeping track of the checked systems?"

"Colour coded strips"

"Hm, simple, but efficient. But once you get more systems in, it will be hard to keep track of."

"I'll burn that bridge when I get to it." Sandrine smiled at her daughters malaphor. Not many people knew this, but that was a quirk she'd inherited from Damien.

"Maybe ask Trixie to help you." She suggested casually.

Anna's head popped out of an opening in the hull. "She can do that?"

"If you upload her to the workshops hardware and grant her transition privileges, she'll be able to use the hardware to boost her capabilities beyond the suit. I did something similar so Entee could help your father on Mars."

Anna's head disappeared from the opening and popped out in the other side so she could see the ICARUS suit in the charge rack. "Trixie?" Her voice was dripping with a mix of hope, doubt and mischief.

"Anna?" The reply from the suits speaker was a perfect mimic of her tone, but the voice was Trixie's.

"You wanna give me a hand on this project?"

"I dunno, really. I was weeding the bugs out of the PEGASUS operations suite."

"Oh" Anna couldn't hide her disappointment.

Rain

(Listen to: https://youtu.be/IhgxZ8tmBxU . When you read through a paragraph, read the next lyric, close your eyes, and wait for it. It’s better to try and imagine yourself in the story. Do not move on to the next paragraph until you have heard the lyric for the best experience.)

Is that rain?

He’d only ever seen a plasma explosion in short bursts, never like this. The whole armada exploded around him, the victory his ancestors fought for becoming a reality. Ship after ship exploded around him, tipping into each other like dominos, lighting up the inky canvas of space with the most beautiful colors mingling with each other in ways previously unknown.

I know it’s hard, to be alone.

His last, most loyal soldier lay bleeding over the titanium flooring. Even as the light faded from their eyes, a twinkle of awestruck wonder hinted near their gaze. They knew their mission was suicide, but they still attempted it. Hell, they succeeded. One blow to the mothership meant one fell swoop to the enemy.

Now, there’s clouds.

Even in death, the enemy still screeched in retaliation. Clouds of metallic dust polluted the empty space around as rail guns fired all their ammunition.

But we can, still walk or crawl.

The Lieutenant’s gaze shifted back towards his last soldier. They tried to hold on their last branches of life, the fire within them cooling as their life force oozed out. They still reached for anything to prop up against, wanting to see the glorious face of an enemies defeat.

Oh, so little.

Little was the perfect way to describe how the two them felt. There was no way off the mothership, they both knew that. Looking into the grand void of all of space, wanting to find a semblance of hope, all while simply staring at an abyss. They felt tiny.

Is that rain, or am I crying again?

The lieutenant felt a tear roll down their cheek. The last of the enemy’s ships had finished exploding. The mothership rumbled underneath them, seemingly exhaling its last breaths, preparing to burst forth to become energy and join the universe around. The plasma surrounding the ship had cooled down, leaving the inky veil as it once was. All their efforts would lead to a greater future, but for now all it lead to was a shortened chapter in the long story of time. A handful of lives meant nothing to save a whole planet.

But you ain’t gonna be alone. They locked eyes one more time before stepping together into their next life.

Warframe Stand Names

So my roommate and I were talking over this a while back while watching JoJo and I figured that, with all the thought we put into it, this was worth sharing with y'all wonderful folks here on Reddit.

So here we go, here are the names of the entire roster of Warframes (current as of the date of this post) if they were stands, as determined by my roommate and myself (with help from u/WingsOfVanity and u/PorygonBeam on Reddit and AndouRaiton on the Warframe Forums). Many frames have multiple names; that's just because we couldn't decide between the two. We chose names based on the following criteria:

  1. Must be named after a song , artist, or lyric.
  2. Must not already exist in current JoJo canon.
  3. Must somehow fit the Warframe's name, abilities, appearance, theme, or reputation.
  4. Must sound cool if shouted as a battle cry in a thick Japanese accent.
  5. Not necessary, but we tried to avoid songs specifically from movies or shows, such as theme songs or musical numbers. We broke this rule only for Hydroid and Frost because we love the names too damn much to say no to them.

Ash: Sexy Ninja (Ninja Sex Party)

Atlas: Rock You (Queen - We Will Rock You)

Banshee: Skrillex (Skrillex)

Baruuk: Hammer Time OR Can't Touch This (MC Hammer - U Can't Touch This)

Chroma: Dragon Force (Dragonforce) OR Imaginary Dragon (Imagine Dragons)

Ember: Start the Fire (Billy Joel - We Didn't Start the Fire)

Equinox: Hot And Cold (Katy Perry - Hot N Cold) OR Black or White (Michael Jackson - Black or White)

Excalibur: Blinding Light (Switchfoot - Blinding Light) OR Sword Swinger (Tobuscus - I Can Swing My Sword!)

Frost: Cold Shoulder (Adele - Cold Shoulder) OR Magic Number (Schoolhouse Rock - 3 Is A Magic Number)

Gara: Glass House (Machine Gun Kelly - Glass House) OR Shatter Me (Lindsey Stirling - Shatter Me)

Garuda: Bad Blood (Taylor Swift - Bad Blood) OR Raining Blood (Slayer - Raining Blood)

Gauss: Triple Gasoline (Manuel - Gas Gas Gas)

Grendel: All Bass (Meghan Trainor - All About That Bass)

Harrow: Chain Smoker (The Chainsmokers)

Hildryn: Death From Above (Death From Above)

Hydroid: Lazy Buccaneer (VeggieTales - The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything) OR Ocean Man (Ween - Ocean Man)

Inaros: Mister Sandman (The Chordettes - Mr. Sandman)

Ivara: Broken Arrow (Avicii - Broken Arrows)

My first AMV I made last year

[Read this before watching]

Hello everyone, I was looking at my dead YT channel and I found out that I uploaded a Frozen AMV 9 months ago, and unlisted it, because I uploaded it after I left YT.

But now that I am on reddit, why not share it to Frozen fans? Note that it was my VERY first AMV and it was so hard to fix the effects... I had to render it 3 times and I couldn't do better. So you might see some really short flashes.

I chose this song because it's my favorite (out of 600 songs I know) and it really fits Frozen. I tried to do lip sync with the clips, it was really cool to work on this.

I also chose the right clips to fits perfectly with the lyrics.

Tell me what you think of it, by commenting here or on the video.

But please don't share it to non Frozen fans, I don't want my FNaF subs to see this xD (yeah my videos are about FNaF animations...)

I'm planning on doing a Frozen II AMV once the official clips come out :)

Debris: Anne [Part 7.5]

[First] [Previous] [Next]

-----

Mark thought he saw something in the cargo hold before the funeral started, but his unfamiliarity with his host's idea of acceptable behaviour pushed him to leave with the crowd. But now he returned, and his curiosity would be sated. The elevator rattled ever so slightly as it descended, Mark was thankful for this, because despite his short time awake, his impromptu nap before getting here didn't do much for resting. The clunk as the lift settled into place jolted him awake.

The size of the cargo hold eclipsed that of the engine room, this much was obvious even behind the towering walls of crates within. Mark passed the space that was cleared for the funeral, it's cold floor was still bare and he felt that it would carry the memory of those fallen for years to come. Shaking off a morbid chill, Mark made his way through the central aisle.

Shipping containers of all sizes were neatly stacked in tall rows, each individual crate had it's resting corners encapsulated in an odd device. 'I'm pretty sure the tables in the dining area had those as well. Locks?' Resisting the urge to press the button on the device at his feet, Mark continued his search.

The various colours of the vessels housed made this the most visually stimulating room Mark had been in so far, everything else was too monochromatic for his tastes. The echo Mark's footfalls gave became a sort of rhythm, one woefully bare, but a rhythm nonetheless. The beat Mark conjured in his mind became the first real entertainment he had experienced since arriving here. Mark smiled at the thought of introducing human music to these people, should he ever get the chance. Lyrics for an old jazz blues single entered Mark's mind when he saw what he was looking for. The remains of his Test FTL Jumper.

It was wedged in an alcove formed by a trio of heavy crates, it's spherical form unable to be tied down by the alien's locks. The door was thankfully left in the open. What decals remained were beacons, islands of colour in a sea of white titanium alloy stained black by whatever happened to the rest of his ship. The surface was rougher than it had been at the launchpad, it only made sense given the situation. Mark gripped the handle and relished in the hearty CLUNK as he popped the latch. Give

Completed Emotion Playlists

Hey everyone! Some of you may remember that I was asking for opinions on the emotions evoked by Bastille songs so I could construct three mood-based playlists, specifically for happiness, sadness, and anger/bitterness. That post can be found here.

Well, I've finally compiled the playlists! Before I begin, I want to clarify that I placed songs in playlists on how they make me feel, not only with lyrics but overall tone of the music, so you may not agree with what I've listed, and that's okay! I welcome the discussion, because I may agree with you! Also stemming from this, some (most) songs are probably in multiple playlists, so don't freak out if you see songs multiple times. Finally, I've included most of Bastille's songs, from all their major albums and OPH albums, and most of their singles. I couldn't include them all, so feel free to suggest anything I may have left out!

Now that we've gotten that out of the way, here are the playlists! (Long lists ahead!) Listed in order of BB-WW-DD-OPH1-OPH2-VS(OPH3)-OPH4-Singles

[TOMT] [SONG] European Dance Song by female singer from 2007-2010

I wish I had more details but here's what I got...

Caucasian Female, most likely from Europe. (I live in U.S. but probably heard on a dance radio station.)

She starts the song in a low, throaty voice

It was a dance song somewhere around 2007-2010

Did not hit the pop charts in America

It has similar lyrics and style to the song Freefallin' by Zoe Badwi and came out around the same time. The song talks about not letting life get you down. You should just take it as it comes "because I am ___________." And that's the name of the song. Like Kryptonite. Or Unstoppable. Or Titanium. But not those words.

THANK YOU!

Training

After dealing with IT band syndrome last year, and having to drop back from the Pittsburgh full to the half, I had lowered my mileage and did a lot of strength training for injury prevention. I got slower, but stronger. Felt ready to give it another go this year. I used the Hal Higdon Novice 2 plan for this race but I didn’t do the cardio cross-training. Kept up the strength training though. I definitely could have trained harder, but may not have juggled work/school/rest-of-my-life as successfully, and my knee stayed happy so I’m happy. I do my long runs with Steel City Road Runners - started off the season in the 10:00 pace group and went to 10:30 as I got up over 15 miles or so. My ultimate goal was just to finish and thought it would be nice to get in under 4:45ish.

Pre-race

I woke up somewhere around 3:30 AM and couldn’t get back to sleep, but I was feeling well-rested. Nerves made it hard to get my bagel down. I managed to eat a banana during my drive over. My boyfriend (who was also running the marathon) and I made our way to the hotel where our running club had a pre-race lounge. We soon said our goodbyes and went off to our respective corrals, as he’s gotten much faster than me despite us training in the same pace group last year ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I opted not to go with a pace group. It rained lightly all morning, but it wasn’t much of an issue.

Can't sing low, can't sing high.

Hello, I am a 23 years old male that took singing as a hobby a month ago.

My vocal range is F2-E4 (although I can reach G4 if I do scales but I can't use it when I sing a song).

My problem is, I can't sing comfortably when I try to transpose a song to a lower scale, it doesn't feel like my voice at all but when I try to sing to the original pitch or transpose to a higher scale I am more comfortable but my singing voice becomes really airy/breathy, really whispery (not falsetto), and it feels like I can't breathe at some points.

There are like 4 or 5 notes I can actually sing and maintain a relatively decent pitch.

I am in a circle of people who are rapping and when they sing a simple melodic hook they can reach all the notes at a good pitch even though they did not train their voice ever, just rapping. When I try to sing the same hook, even though I have been rapping for the same amount of time they did, I just can't do it, it sounds horrible.

I have high anxiety levels when I try to train my voice or sing, getting panic attacks for some reason but I am so into it that I can't give it up so soon.

Here's an example of me trying to sing: https://picosong.com/wBsQG/

Here's me trying to sing titanium (sorry for the accent and mispronounced lyrics, I am not an English native)

https://picosong.com/wBs7d/

I am not an expert at all but from what I experience I have a hard time trying to sing the first part (the low notes) and keep a nice tone, then the middle notes come and I find my zone and when the "titanium" part comes I go into my absolutely bad falsetto because I can't reach those notes and I can't come back to chest.

So yesterday was an extremely active Day in the Dad-a-verse. I just wanted to write up a summary of the days events for everyone who doesn't follow the discord as closely.

The day started off with an hour long group voice chat with Dad. There are no real transcripts of everything that transpired, but here is some of the info Dad shared...

Daughter is confirmed as still missing. Doesn't answer her phone. Dad claims he was able to find his own way home after he went out searching for Daughter. He wasn't retrieved by the server.

There are more types of FOOD other than red. Dad said that the other FOOD flavors are more expensive and he only buys bargain "Red flavor" for family. He is planning to indulge in some more expensive FOOD, but he's saving that for a special occasion (not the 50k celebration). Dad also says he sometimes eats the "spicy red" flavor of FOOD. He keeps that on the top shelf.

Dad was asked where he lives. He said he lives in "Town" the name of town is "Town". Town, USA, Earth. The only parts of town he mentioned are the parts we've seen or have been referred to in videos... True Value, park, restaurant, ect.

Dad said his favorite star is the Sun. He likes to smell the sun and advises that we all go smell the sun as well. Jump if you have to. The sun smells like everything, nothing, and a little bit like pennies. He seemed unable to name any star other than the sun, but he likes looking at the stars.

Dad had no memory of "little towels". He was very confused by the question. He said maybe Mom was doing some cleaning.

Dad doesn't just view things, he experiences them. Dad sometimes gets confused about whether something is an actual memory, or if it was just something in a movie he saw once. Dad isn't interested in video games, he's only interested in calculator. He does like Portal, but he says he didn't play it... he lived it. He was "inside the disc" He won the game and ate the cake. He also mentioned the game "Catherine". He said he felt like he might be living that game right now, but he wasn't really sure.

Dad is very good at math. Dad can know almost everything about a thing just by seeing a small part of it. If he sees a small part of the ocean, then he can extrapolate what the entire ocean looks like. If he sees just your little toe, then he knows what the rest of you looks like.

Dad has no memory of Nathan and has no idea who that is. Dad similarly has no memory of Keplar, Andan, or anything like that.

Dad says he has lots of plans. Big plans. Plans for 50k, plans for 100k, plans beyond. Dad is going to tour sometime in the future. Dad will release his first bit of merch (shirts) sometime in t

Song of the Week #290: Beautiful Pain

Welcome everybody to the third SotW of December. The last time that we listened to this week's track was back in 2015 and this time, it marks the end of the 'Relapse' theme that we had going on for the last month, as 'Beautiful Pain' has been selected by /u/thesituation531 as this week's featured track.

Considered one of Eminem’s most meaningful and least profane songs, this track marked the first time Sia and Eminem collaborated (they have since collaborated again on his 'Shady XV' track 'Guts Over Fear'). Sia, at the time of recording this track, was most well-known for her collaborations with David Guetta, featuring on his smash hits 'Titanium' and 'She Wolf'. Since however, she has made a name for herself with her chart-topping single 'Chandelier'.

Unfortunately Sia was attacked for collaborating with Eminem who’s considered to be quite homophobic with his often politically incorrect lyrics. Sia being a proud supporter of the LGBT community was guilted, and while she defended Eminem knowing he had nothing against the homosexual community, out of guilt she donated her proceeds from the song to the Los Angeles LGBT Center.

Every week there will be a new song that gets featured at the top of the subreddit. Users can leave a comment and the song that gets the most votes might be the new Song of the Week. Suggestions for improving the next post are encouraged.

This week's Nominator: thesituation531

The Song: Beautiful Pain - iTunes

In-App link(s): spotify:track:7hiBhOh4s8G0xmGYBAjyuw

Featuring Artist(s): Sia

Length: 4:25

Album(s): The Marshall Mathers LP2 (Deluxe) - iTunes

##Ellie Goulding vs Tove Lo vs Sia!!! ##Welcome to the Alternative Pop Queens Rate!

This rate is for some of the most popular and impactful female pop singers who still maintain a mostly alternative sound. All of these artists have had huge influence in the music industry, from worldwide hits to their many songwriting credits.

Hey everyone! I’m /u/SkyBlade79, and I’m so excited to finally host this rate. I hope that everything runs great and we get an amazing reveal. All of that depends on y’all have good taste, of course, so it’s unlikely!

For now, this rate is due by midnight on April Fool’s Day – April 1st. Here is the [submission link] (https://goo.gl/RVXjhF), if you don’t think you need to read anymore! Not counting interludes or the bonus tracks, this rate is for 47 songs.

The basis of this rate is female alternative pop singers who, while staying in the alternative stream, have had commercial success. Some are more consistently successful than others in this rate (billboard 138 O_O), of course, but they’ve all had their moments.

This rate has been in development for two and a half years, as I submitted it to rate suggestion threads again and again. During that time, it’s gone through a lot of changes. It has always been Tove Lo vs Ellie Goulding, but the albums rate and the third artists have changed a lot. The third artists changed were MØ, Halsey, Banks, Lights, and Sia.

Just a heads up, we are NOT doing Halcyon Days or Queen of the Clouds: Blueprint because they’re so much longer than 1000 Forms of Fear and I’d like to keep the albums about the same length.


###Ellie Goulding - Halcyon

Release Date: October 5th, 2012

Billboard 200 Chart Peak: #9

Album Certifications: UK 4x Platinum, RIAA Platinum

Song Certifications: “Burn”, “Anything Could Happen”, “I Need Your Love” & “Lights” – RIAA Platinum, “Hanging On”, “Summit” – RIAA Gold

Metacritic: 69/100 Halcyon is English singer-songwriter Ellie Goulding’s second album. It was a huge worldwide hit, topping the UK charts and earning a top 10 spot on the US Billboard 200. Ellie’s team certainly took advantage of this to no end, with countless editions of this album released. There are country-specific bonus tracks, a deluxe version, the 2013 reissue of the album “Halcyon Days”, the 2014 reissue of THAT album, and a lot more random editions thrown out everywhere. Regardless, I think

[TOMT] [song] song with female vocals about her becoming stronger and fighting back electronic/dubstep

i'm so close to hearing it I think the chorus goes something like: My claws... are sharpER I amm stronger!

maybe not the i am stronger part but claws are sharper sounds good.

It is also kind of scary haunted electronic music I used to listen to it probably around 2010. I used to listen to the remix of american horror story intro at the same time to give an example of similar music sound. also maybe similar to (Make me wanna die - The Pretty Reckless) they feel is similar but the one im looking for isn't rock at all. sounds more like The Neighbourhood type of songs (creepy) also to 7 devils from american horror story

thanks for checking this out!

edit: really similar to digital daggers - the devil within I'm getting closer!

10.20.18 Reno, NV Wedding Recap & Budget Breakdown

This is long overdue. We just got our wedding video preview and I loved it so much it gave me the motivation to finally do this.

October 20th, 2018 Reno, NV

Initial Budget: $20kFinal Budget:$21k ish

Number of Guests invited: 140

Number who RSVP'd: 95

Number who actually showed up: 89

Ceremony at 3:30

Dress Code: Formal

About us: Together 3 years. Engaged 6 months. Both early 30's he is a Teacher and I work at a university.

Budget Breakdown: Venue: $2360 with 20% season pass holder discount

Our venue was mid-mountain at a local ski resort. It had an amazing view of the valley below and was also in the forest which was something I really wanted. Included use of the venue all day, bridal suite, linens, table settings, tables, chairs & staff. Pictures.

Dress: $3000 (My grandma bought this, not included in the budget.)

Lyric by Watters- bought at a local bridal boutique. Looking back now I kind of wish that I had tried on more dresses. Mainly different styles of dresses. I am super happy I picked this dress but I miss having more of an experience if that makes any sense at all.

Alterations: $140

Luckily my dress was the perfect length. I had a french bustle done, a belt sewn on and the sides taken in 1/4 in. Word of advice, practice with your bustle beforehand. My seamstress sewed in little ribbons, I wish I would have thought to color code them or something. The first attempt at the wedding was done wrong and we wasted a lot of time trying to fix it. We never ended up getting it right. My maid of honor eventually ended up taking safety pins and pinning it up. Picture of my janky bustle.

Veil & Accessories: $638

I got my chapel length veil on Etsy from VeilsbyRebecca ($142). I bought my belt on sale at the boutique where I got my dress for ($100). I splurged on vintage earrings ($260) and also had some studs made out of an old family ring ($120). Garter was $16 on Etsy.Brides Hair & Makeup: $120I hired my regular hairdresser to do my hair. She drove up to the venue and stayed for the whole wedding. In hindsight, I wish I would have gone with a simpler design. I did a half up half down style. My hair is somewhat thin and having so much of it up made the part that was down look kind of strange in some pictures. I

Adam opens the show talking about the value of a college education not being worth what it was before. They then look at pictures of Portland where they are putting down boulders to stop homeless encampments, which leads to a rant about society coming undone. After that, Adam sings some very disturbing alternate lyrics to children’s songs from his youth.

They next discuss Louis' concept of Swarm AI, which compiles anonymous human minds on a real-time, problem-solving platform as a means to create natural human super intellects. As the show wraps up, Adam and Louis talk about Louis’ daily routine and his aversion to modern day technology.

[Rescuers][Misunderstanding]I don't care how you do it, you must sink the Stillness! Chapter 1

Decided to write an [A-Team] story for the monthly challenge, part of a followup to One Big Misunderstanding. This takes place about six months after that story. First of four chapters.

Chapter 1

Growing up, I'd been a Lagrange kid. My home was one of the first space stations we’d built in orbit that was meant to hold people. A big old hunk of some never-was planet, the thing was 80% titanium. Pure luck had brought it into an erratic orbit near Earth. My parents were part of the venture firm that claimed it, mined it, and colonized it. I was born two years after they got up there. We hollowed her out, put the money into towing another asteroid into the Lagrange point. We had to buy our air, our water, our food, at first. The money from the titanium made us self-sufficient, and by the time I was twenty, we were thriving. Lagrangian Titanium carried the colony ships that set out into the universe, slipping through space in the grip of the Alcubierre drive. Silver and shining, out of the deepest dreams of Tolkien’s dwarven mines. They gleamed like chrome.

They were also a thing of the past. It had been only six months, but they were all hewn out of Kalisaxine by now. It grew fast, it was nigh-indestructable, and it healed itself. A semi-organic mix of exotic minerals, it was one of a thousand technological advances left to an unwary galaxy by the Kalisaxians. It was pure white, and it shined brightly, like hospital corridors. It was slightly warmer to the touch than ambient air, and you could feel it shift slightly when you touched it. It didn’t click when you stepped on it, you couldn’t hear the engines through it, it responded to pressure and kept any of the low thrums of shipboard living inaudible.

I loathed the stuff. That the construction of The Discourse was only possible because of Kalisaxine didn’t make me a lot happier. Ships weren’t supposed to be so quiet. On one of the old Lagrange stations, silence meant you were about to die.

“Odd that they’re sending us in,” said Aaron Bergman, in the soft, calm, unemotional voice he used when he wasn’t trying to trick anyone. The dark-skinned man walked with his hands in his pockets, the unadorned jumpsuit outlining the squat, broad body of someone who grew up in a gravity well. “I wouldn’t think three months would be enough time for them to take a chance on us. You finally going to trust us with weapons on this mission, Sarge?”

“The fact that you’re asking that tells me I shouldn’t, Be

For Your Consideration #153: Prurient - Frozen Niagara Falls

Good afternoon folks, and welcome to another edition of For Your Consideration, the weekly series where we talk about albums that aren't on our Essentials chart (Discussion for 2010-2014 beginning soon-ish?), and maybe why they should be. This week won't be for the sensitive of hearing, as today, /u/Earthrise takes on Prurient's Frozen Niagara Falls.


Artist: Prurient

Album: Frozen Niagara Falls


Listen:

YouTube

Spotify

Apple Music


Background by /u/Earthrise

Prurient is the primary alias of noise musician Dominick Fernow. The project first materialized in the late 90’s, with Fernow self-distributing rudimentary cassette demos recorded in his mother’s basement. Fernow quickly gained notoriety within the east-coast DIY scene for his impossibly prolific output and intensely physical live performances. By the mid-2000’s, the project began to garner significant acclaim for its extreme minimalist abrasion, as on releases like Pleasure Ground and Arrowhead.

Prurient’s 2010s output, most notably Bermuda Drain and Through the Window, took on an improbable club music influence, informed by Fernow’s Vatican Shadow side project and his involvement in the darkwave band Cold Cave. His 2015 double-album, Frozen Niagara Falls, presents somewhat of a return to the project’s roots, with Fernow synthesizing his broader experiments in genre with the more aggressive tendencies of his heyday. He continued this ambitious streak in December 2017 with the three-hour, septuple-LP “doom electronics” collection Rainbow Mirror.


Review by /u/Earthrise

Frozen Niagara Falls unveils itself with a series of cryptic notes printed in the liner notes of its vinyl release. Among a dedication to a companion who passed away, and a list of “books on love and death,” are the following messages:

>Recorded winter 2013-winter 2015

>New York City

>In the spirit of homelessness

[Discussion] The search for cliche-free pop songs, an experiment

Today I had nothing better to do with my life, so I went through a bunch of songs to find out just how many contain pop music cliches in their lyrics.


Sample - Billboard Year-End #1s: 1967 - 2016 (full list here) & Every Top 10 Song in /r/Popheads Rates (full list here), minus 4 rates - hip hop/rap (because rap cliches are a little different from pop cliches), French, Billboard Year-End #1s, and Fantasy Eurovision.

Cliches - Note that this list is completely arbitrary, based on my own perceptions of pop cliches, and is in no way exhaustive or totally accurate. There were lots of 'grey areas' as I looked through the songs, but the most egregious cliches are as follows:

  • baby, darling, sugar, girl/boy (when used as a filler like baby), my love, your loving, your body, break free, open your heart, take you home with me, take my breath away, move on, falling in love with you, repeated "yeah"s, put your hands in the air, don't stop, DJ, dance (as an instruction, like 'get up and dance'), dance until we die, go insane, stare into my soul, drive me/you crazy, love you long time, tonight, on the [dance]floor, nothing I can say, die for you, will I ever/I will never love again, head keeps spinning, hold your head up, can't help the way I'm feeling, lose my mind, let it go, want me/you, hard to breathe, on my/your knees, you're mine/I'm yours, destiny

  • repeated third-person descriptions of a woman, i.e. "she's a maneater". This is one of those grey areas where it might not be a cliche.

  • intercourse with you, when the whole song is about how much the singer wants to bang you.

  • dancing as a metaphor for sex

Results

Billboard Year-End #1s: 1967 - 2016

Cliche-free songs: 17/51 (33%)

Surviving songs (bonus! songs not about love, sex, or romantic relationships are in italics - 7 songs, 14%):

Lulu - To Sir With Love

The Beatles - Hey Jude

Simon & Garfunkel - Bridge Over Troubled Water

Three Dog Night - Joy to the World

Barbra Streisand - The Way We Were

Wings - Silly Love Songs [This song is actually full of cliches, but it is satire, so it gets a pass]

Dionne & Friends - That's What Friends Are For

The Bangles - Walk Like an Egyptian

Chicago - Look Away

Whitney Houston - I Will Always Love Y

There is this song that comes on the intercom at work. And I can barely make out the lyrics cause I work in a lumber warehouse and it gets kinda loud in there. But one day It was quiet enough where I can somewhat make out a few lyrics. The lyrics I think I heard are, “ never look back whoa, whoa”, or “ Run and never look back, whoaaaa, whoaaaa” or “never look down whoaaa, whoaaa”. It has like a David Guetta type feel to it like titanium with singing and electronic music. If anybody can help me find this song I will be greatly appreciated

A Beginner's Guide To Virgin Steele

Hi. Welcome. Read the title. If you still don't understand, I'm here to talk about the best Power Metal band ever.

Virgin Steele is quite probably the most deservingly underrated act in Metal. Although many regard them as one of the pillars of Heavy and Power Metal, there's also a lot of metalheads that don't really know them at all, even in the genre the band fits in (MFW it doesn't get a place on the fucking Essential list). So come with me, on this magical journey into one of the most amazing discographies in Metal, where you will bask your ears and rattle your head to the glorious sound of Virgin Steele. We will only cover the Full-Lengths in this guide. But first, we'll see how Virgin Steele was formed.


Origins

Jack Starr is the original founding member, he brought his buddy Joey Ayvazian as the drummer a bit later. Vocalist auditions included something like 50 different vocalists, but David DeFeis made them all look like little bitches and carved a clean path with his piercing falsettos. David also brought bassist Joey O'Reilly along. It's 1981 and Virgin Steele is fucking born... If you're wondering about the name, DeFeis himself made it very clear:

"A fresh approach, a new lease on life; pure Metal, fresh from the fiery forge, ready to be tested, tried and to prove itself, baptized in the flame of life; full of hunger and power, rich with dignity and majesty, with an awareness and respect for tradition, but combined and fueled by a desperate need to carve out new frontiers of expression. MadTheMad is awesome. To take the music as far as it can possibly go; to slice through, and break the boundaries wide open. There are no limits!!!"

Words to live by. They started as a mix of traditional Heavy Metal and Hard Rock, naturally due to Jack Starr's influences and style and of course, Power Metal wasn't even a thing. The songs were written mostly by David and Jack, and the guitar was very much the focus. What you need to know about both David and Jack, is that they were very creative and passionate individuals. However, Jack always shared his motivations, his ideas and wanted the whole group to feel embraced; David thought Jack was being a faggot and did not accept the same ideals, in his mind he knew the perfect routes and had the perfect solutions, deviations were not encouraged. But maybe it was their differences that made early Virgin Steele such a special band.

It is in 1981 that our voyage begins,

[TOMT] [Song] [2000-2010]

I have searched the web for this song for 2 or 3 months now and i just cant find it! So i would appreciate some help.

The lyrics i remember are only a few words at the start of the song and they go as: Get up, come on now. Get up, come on... (not sure if its in the official lyrics or not myb thats why I can’t find it).

The song was used in ads for a Dolce Gusto coffee maker (https://www.dolce-gusto.com.mt/m/genio2-titanium-auto) Im from a small European country and i believe they used the same ad for multiple countries if this helps at all.

The start of the song is very similar to the start of Gnarls Barkley’s Crazy (also the 2 songs have very similar styles and rhythm I think).

Link to the mentioned song-https://youtu.be/-N4jf6rtyuw

I think the song is from around the 2000 and no older than 2013.

I hope this gets solved but i didn’t left a lot of clues.

Also sorry for the formatting I’m on mobile.

Impulsive Pen Purchase Review: Kickstarter Edition

Hi, I’m ppchromatics. I make impulsive decisions and I’m horrible at photography. You’re about to see both in this post. I know there is mild discussion about Kickstarter pens and usually the general consensus is to avoid it. As stated before, I make impulsive decisions which is why I have 3 kickstarter pens. I’ve had these pens for a while and here is my review on all of them. All of them have Iridium point nibs. Two of them standard international convertors. The wooden one takes Waterman. I believe these are all fine nibs. For the photos, I’m using Takeda Jimiku Kyo-iro Ink in Cherry Blossom of Keage. All writing samples are on a Kokuyo campus notebook. Please excuse the ink stains on the hand. I had a pen explode in my bag and I had to clean up. Also please excuse the writing. I have shitty and impatient handwriting.

Whidden’s Woodshop Avon Fountain Pen ($39)

I’ve had this for two to two and a half years. Please excuse the horrifically stained wood. There was a point where I only used Emerald of Chivor. I was clumsy and washing pens in a dorm bathroom is not ideal. It is made of Koa wood and metal. It twists shut and posts. He primarily sells his pens on etsy and kickstarter. I actually have another rollerball pen from him made from a countertop.

While it is a beautiful pen, it’s not my favorite. There is nothing wrong with the writing but it’s just so awkward to hold. The other pen I have from him is slimmer and I use that pretty frequently. This one is just so bulky and when posted it feels weird. This pen has definitely seen some use from me but it’s just so unwieldy. Prior to this review, it has been living in a cigar box with other uninked pens. It writes well but I wouldn’t use it to write for a long period of time because the bulk of the pen makes it uncomfortable after a while. The nib is just fine. There isn’t anything horrible or spectacular about it. Judging from his other pens, he has a talent for making pens. I feel like this one could have been just a bit better.

For this writing sample, I use the poem from The Shape of Water.

Inceni 3D Printed Pen ($46)

I’ve had this for one and a half to two years. It has my initials at the end of the body of the pen and a fun pattern call “Arboretum” on it. This is the only 3D printed pen I have. It does stain easily because it’s porous. It is very light. This one snaps shut. It does not post at all. Based on other campaigns, he

I wrote this satirical review of the game back when it wasn't finished. Haven't played yet since the drop - does it still apply?

1000/1000 dead crewmembers. Would seek closure again!

Bereavement Simulator 2014

This game is an immersive exploration of what it would be like to have no friends because they all died. Having lost all of your friends to death by planetary impact, immolation, starvation, drowning, predators, and presumably suicide, you now face death by loneliness and abandonment. As the only person left alive amongst a tight-knit crew of would-be NPCs that were all suddenly killed, you must roam the endless ocean in search of a rumored alien support group.

The lingering tragedy kicks right off with a visceral explosion that brutally vaporizes a spaceship crew of thousands, leaving not a single soul in so much as one other lifepod alive. All corpses are ravaged and lost to the sea by the time your character may (or may not) work up the courage to recover their bodies in hopes of obtaining precious closure. The space contractors to whom the lifepod work was subbed-out deserve terrible Angie's List reviews, exemplified by yours being the only one that did not fatally disappoint its patron(s). Yours is fully functional and equipped for an extended shiva.

A giant, open sandbox world of possibilities await the player as they attempt to cope with having so few friends that are alive. You can blackout your eyes and fingernails with octopus ink, write screamo lyrics on your PDA, draw crude pictures in the sand (of your dead friends), rock back and forth in a ball throughout dozens of biomes, briefly turn to religion, craft a "stillsuit" that converts your bodily fluids to mind-numbing moonshine, or write acoustic emo lyrics on your PDA.

Connecting the dots as you unravel the mystery of the disaster (that terminated your friends) will only be a fleeting distraction from the grief and pain of their tragic passing, which is the true challenge of Subnautica. Try not to be overwhelmed by how difficult it will be to properly mourn them! The learning curve is quick, even if the grieving process is not. Simply build a sprawling underwater laboratory to be alone in with your misery! Turn to compulsive hoarding behaviors, filling the void within your soul with lots of lead, titanium, gold, and other material resources that the majestic ocean offers to those who are alive to bear that grace.... sigh.

Do you turn to travel to take your mind off life's bitter tribulations? Build a submarine that can take you anywhere but here, except yesterday! Building this vessel, th

Po-bish-e-quasho smiled as he watched Wotsi’a play around with Dark Moon. The two void foxes were happily wrestling and playing as they ran around the enclosure. They rolled around in the grass and chased each other around the small bushes on what looked like a tall plateau overlooking a dry desert valley that wouldn’t look out of place somewhere in the American Southwest back on Earth. Of course that was just how they had made the room look. In reality they were in the Retribution in the so called Native American Cultural Heritage Enclosure. Which was a mouthful.

Tsula was sitting on a bench not far away, next to the fire pit, while reading from her tablet. “Hey, you think we should do any actual cultural stuff while we’re here?” Tsula looked up from her tablet and smirked then.

“I’m fairly sure everyone just thinks we come here to fuck.” The comment made him laugh as he shook his head.

“C’mon you don’t do war dances?”

“War dances?” She asked, obviously amused by the idea. “And how do you know how to perform a war dance? You don’t even know your own language.”

“Hey I know my name right? Po-bish-e-quasho. Iron Jacket! Great name for a tank commander isn’t it? And the war dance isn’t about doing things just like they did back then it’s about getting in touch with my inner animal and letting out my aggression so I’m focused for the battle ahead!”

“Yeah, when you talk like that people definitely think we come here to fuck.” Tsula replied which made him laugh again. “And you tell everyone you name is Jack Irons.”

“Hey that was when I first joined up. It wasn’t like I had time to correct everyone while we were fighting Congos in the war. Plus, they can pronounce those words a lot easier. So I cut them some slack.” He shrugged and smiled. He did wish he knew more of the language though. Tsula seemed to know all sorts of phrases and stuff. But he wasn’t sure why she gave her fox a Shoshone name when she was Cherokee. He felt like it would be rude to ask though when he didn’t know more than three or four words in Comanche.

“Well you better hurry with that war dance. We’re supposed to reach the system in a few hours.”

[TOMT][song]Heard a song on the radio, I tried to hum the chorus

http://vocaroo.com/i/s0iOkCYhesOp

Heard it today on the radio, not sure if it's very new or not... It's a girl singing with a clear voice. English language. I didn't catch any lyrics, except an "I confess" somewhere right before or in the chorus.

Edit: None of the songs suggested so far are correct. It's kind of similar to Sia's style (not Sia though). The chorus is sung in the same style as "Titanium" (a bit yelled...). She has a high pitched voice, but she also sounds like she would be around 30 years old. It's commercial pop, but no "techno" part as in most songs today.

Unfortunately it was the end of the song and I didn't catch the verse melody.

Actually I believe I heard a "merci" at the end but I'm not totally sure. So she could be French or Canadian (because the accent was good).

Edit: Solved thanks to /u/Juck. Song was Marina Kaye - Homeless

Albums I listened to in 2016

All the cool kids are doing it so I thought I'd jump in. I didn't listen to much in 2016 (and there's still stuff I want to get to but lack the time), yet I'm pretty satisfied with my haul. 2016 most definitely didn't suck for power metal, there's lots of diamonds in the rough if you look for them.

Looking at other people's lists I realized what I listened to has almost no overlap with what they listened to, so it's a good chance to give the spotlight to bands that IMO deserve it. As I didn't listen to much, I can't come up with a top 10 best or top 10 worst album list, so I'm just going to run through everything alphabetically and give it an A-F rank based on my overall impressions.


Ariadna Project - Novus Mundus: This band was absent for nearly ten years so it's a blessing to have them back with a full album. I expected something good, but this was on a whole other level; it feels like a top-echelon euro power metal album from the early 2000's, but at the same time the sound of the band has matured in all the right ways. It's a progressive power metal album at heart, despite all the cheese and happy choruses that coat it. It's also varied nicely, which makes it extremely fun to listen to. 'Desata el fuego' is a fast power metal track, followed by the somewhat slower (but just as good) 'Corriendo libre' and 'Enfrenta el destino', then speed kicks back in with 'El final de oscuridad'. The album tends to follow this format, but the songs themselves are also varied: most of the faster songs have slower, more progressive sections where you get to appreciate each band member separately. Keyboards and guitars absolutely steal the spotlight, but the singer also does a great job by singing in a clean, pleasant manner and hitting those high notes with seemingly little effort. I also want to mention the album's epic 'Novus Mundus' (the song) because of how good it is. It's got it all; slower progressive sections, female choirs, spoken interludes, double-bass drumming, a fantastic chorus and an amazing ending that befits the album. All in all, this is potentially the highest quality power metal album of 2016 that literally came out of nowhere, and sadly it's destined to fly under the radar for most because the band sings in Spanish. Their previous album also got a version with English lyrics, so I hope they do an English version for this one too, the album deserves the exposure. A

Elder Race VI- Blood Upon The Risers

Hey folks, another installment of Elder Race. This one is a little long and little bloody. If you're new to the story, here is the Beginning. Otherwise, Enjoy!

Previous

&nbsp;

Karlos

&nbsp;

Boarding Craft 666, aka “Beelzebub” -point of origin: Troop Ship “Remember Shanghai”

&nbsp;

The Push through the Andoran Militarized Zone

&nbsp;

Orders: Take and hold the bridge

&nbsp;

Status: In transit

&nbsp;

Karlos shook and shuddered in time with the ship as it bounced its way across the vibrant display of lasers, photon lances and ultra-accelerated tungsten shells. Normal tactics in a normal battle were for the fighters to disable point defences whilst Capital ships kept the big guns busy, leaving it to the boarding parties to smash down the gates. Karlos had known from the start that this wasn’t a normal battle. This was a clusterfuck of the highest proportions. It was so big, there was so much going on, that Karlos’ battlenet couldn’t take the strain. He’d had to switch to the squad battlenet and stay there. He had no idea what was going on out there. Good or bad, Karlos just had to do his job.

&nbsp;

Beelzebub shuddered again as something detonated too close to comfort. The pilots wouldn’t tell them what was going on. No information on how many of their fellow boarding crafts were left. No information on how many enemy craft were left. It was bad for morale. The marines travelled in their own pockets of calm, inside each of their own tiny boarding torpedos. Each boarding craft held 60 torpedos, each torpedo held 1 marine. When the boarding craft got into range of the intended target, they’d fire their payload of marines at it. The marines would fly like devils and hope to hell that the capital ships and fighters had done their job properly. If they hadn’t… well, a marine would either get smashed into mush on the ship shields or get shot out of existence by point defence lasers. The life expectancy was not long.

&nbsp;

Karlos’ heart was beating overtime, so hard that he felt his chest go tight with the strain. He needed that cold, that killer-instinct that everyone knew him for. But he couldn’t find it. He was just a scared kid alone in a tiny space as the monsters fought each other out in the black. He was so sweaty and so bent out of shape that his battle

Sia

This is a weird one for me, because I've typed a lot before on various forums, in various places - and I've been trying to make some definite, positive steps. And I've realised somthing:

I've survived drinking this far. I've survived stabbing (which occurred while I was drinking). I've survived a sexual assault (again, while I wasn't sober). I've survived cancer (not helped by the fact I drank a lot during recovery). I've also survived childhood sexual abuse (which may have affected my current state).

The human brain amazes me. Even when addled by drink and blacked out, I find my way home through two security doors, through my locked door and into my bed. I may wake up sore headed and brokenhearted but it hasn't killed me yet.

I have to be happy about that. It hasn't killed me yet. I'm 31, I'm in AA and I keep failing, but I'm not broken.

I heard 'Titanium' come on the radio the other day. I was feeling quite low - and the lyrics made sense to me. They didn't just make sense, they lifted me up, they fortified me - and I suddenly realised it was actually going to be okay. It reminded me of the 'power songs' that used to happen on Ally McBeal, the characters each had songs that empowered them in certain scenarios.

I'm going to stay sober today. Not in a sad way. Not in a downhearted way. I'm going to be happy in an 'I'm alive, I'm powerful and I'm motherf*cking Titanium' kind of way.

I may not know you all, but I share your struggle - and I know this may sound corny, a little lame and my British soul resents me for typing it - but I love you all.

Share your accidentally demotivating "motivational" run music

So I like to run to trance, house and electro-pop with uplifting lyrics (Every Chance we get we Run - Teagan & Sarah/Guetta). I'll even sing the chorus aloud and throw both hands in the air in victory on my run if I'm particularly into it (Euphoria - Loreen). But sometimes I find the lyrics so non-sensical that they actually demotivate me.

For example, when Titanium (Guetta/Sia) came out several years ago it seemed like the perfect selection:

I'm bulletproof, nothing to lose/ Fire away, fire away/ You shoot me down but I won't fall

Hands-up great, but then the apex: I am Titanium.

WTF? My limited experience with titanium was that it was brittle. Lightweight maybe, but not Muad'dib force-shield protection level. I just couldn't reconcile the logic. Exit playlist.

Happened again a few days ago. I made a new playlist on Spotify from recommended songs to try out on my run. It was alright, did the job, until these motivational lyrics popped up:

You and me this is our life and we own it/ Like lions in the wild /Like lions in the wild/ Like lions in the wild

All I could think about was how shitty it would be to be a lioness in the wild. The heat, not knowing when you would eat next, doing all the hunting and child rearing. Uggg. Soon to exit playlist.

Does anyone else have experience with motivational songs or lyrics having the opposite affect?

Respect Apathy (Rapper)

Warning: This respect thread consists entirely of song lyrics, and includes a large amount of profanity and potentially offensive/violent/sexual lyrics.


Respect Apathy


"This is the hardest record all year, mark my words / From the dark I emerge, power sparks the surge / Got Juggernaut strength, lift buildings with both hands / Crush a tank like a child stepping on Coke cans / Gigantic beasts must be out of my mind / Electrically charged, I jump rope with live powerlines / On some real shit, body made of steel shit / Travel with more nines than 'bring your 4th graders on a field trip'"


Background


Chad Bromley, better known by his stage name Apathy, is an indie rapper from Willimantic, Connecticut. Since WhoWouldWin likes the occasional “raps are feats” fight, Apathy is a perfect fit- he’s known as an excellent battle-rapper, and has rapped along with the likes of Army of the Pharoahs, Demigodz, Snowgoons, and Styles of Beyond.

I won’t waste too much more time other than to say that this all came around because of this post awhile back. I only used one song (Immortal) for that post, and realized that Apathy has much, much more to offer for lyrics feats, so without further ado, let’s get started!

Quick note, the only lines here are lines Apathy has said himself in his own songs or his guest verses on other songs. I intentionally excluded "I always win" type lines, but did include a section for comparisons to other characters for cheap thrills.


Godhood/Immortality


From “Charlie Brown”

> The grand architect of the universe to bless tracks

From “Immortal”

> Not a mineral a mammal or an animal, I'm / Metaphysical, the syllables in critical rhymes

> My immortality's recorded on record

From “Broken Safeties”

> I fistfight with God, slap box with Amen Ra

From "Knuckle Sandwich"

> Immortal so I kill they family members every century

From “Bloc Party”

> I walk amongst the gods, keep my head in the clouds

From “Godz In Da Front”

> Apathy is a god in the rap upper echelon

From “Playing with Fire”

ICP mentioned three times on Eminem's new album.

In case you haven't heard already, Eminem mentioned ICP three times on the new album. While the shout outs may be comical and even light jabs, they are far from the insults thrown there way back in the day.

The three songs are Asshole, Brainless, and Wicked Ways.

On "Asshole" he says:

"Holy mackeral, I'm the biggest jerk on the planet earth I'll smack a girl off the mechanical bull at a tractor pull Thinkin we have some magnetic pull Then scream "ICP IN THIS BITCH, HOW DO FUCKIN MAGNETS WORK!?" Cause you're attractive, but we ain't attractable"

On "Brainless" he says:

"can't believe this little hick locked This hip-hop shit in his pocket and still the shit got That white trash traffic and gridlock, shit happened like a six blocks From a Kid Rock, Insane Clown Posse Concert in mid Oc-tober And God forbid I see a wizard and get a brain in my titanium cranium dog Cause I'd turn into the unabomber, momma always said"

And on "Wicked Ways" he says:

"I'm a combination of Skylar Grey, Tyler the Creator, and Violent Jay It's a fucking miracle to be this lyrical Paint my face with clown make up and a smiley face I'm insane"

For reference, this is how Eminem referred to ICP back on the first Marshall Mathers album:

"Plus I was put here to put fear in faggots who spray Faygo Root Beer And call themselves clowns cause they look queer Faggy 2 Dope and Silent Gay Claiming Detroit When y'all live twenty miles away And I don't wrestle I'll knock you fucking faggots the fuck out Ask em about the club they was at when they snuck out After they ducked out the back when they saw us and bugged out Ducked down and got paintballs shot at they truck, blaow Look at y'all running your mouth again When you ain't seen a fucking mile road south of 10 And I don't need help from D-12 to beat up two females In make-up who may try to scratch me with Lee Nails Slim Anus You damn right, slim anus I don't get fucked in mine like you two little flaming faggots"

Personally, I think its pretty cool to see a rapper as big as Eminem shout out his fellow Detroit artists ICP in a way that is not completely degrading.

I need a bit of advice on how to proceed with a short story. [1400 words]

I've decided that I'm not ready to write a novel, yet. I started it, outlined the entire thing, wrote a lot of rough scenes, but I need to be honest with myself: I don't have the skills to write a full novel and I'm afraid if I push forward I will just end up destroying a perfectly good idea.

So I've decided to take the main theme of implant-addicted cyborgs as a metaphor for heroin addiction and make a short story out of it. So far I have 1400 words. I'm quite happy with the way I've portrayed the main character's withdrawal symptoms, but I'm conflicted about how much world-building I should do.

It's intended to be a "lyrical short" with an open ending where the so-called moral of the story is left entirely up to the reader. I'm confident I can pull it off, but I'm not sure at what point the world-building is too much and becomes a distraction.

My main question: Should I just jump straight into it the way I've done with "Dr. Henry Vonnett pulled the blinds"? Or should I have a completely different opening before the current opening scene that provides more detailed information about the colony itself?

Edit: It's not finished, yet. She does eventually make her way down to the mine and the story will be about 6k or 7k words by the time it's finished.


The Door

Dr. Henry Vonnett pulled the blinds.

His new office—injected long ago between the two biggest toes of a sprawling concrete, corporate foothold—doubled as his living quarters, but there was no room to complain: his tiny window framed the outskirts of Noctis Labyrinthus. And although the Sun neither rises from nor sets to the south, the shallowing and deepening of the shadows in the valleys more than justified his three-day-old routine—at least, that is, for him whose passions lay with other things than ore. In fact, he often found more meaning in his picking at the peeling skins and cuticles that emphasize his fingernails than miners find in scrying dusty samples.

And so he picked and paused to check the changing of the maze.

He savored the butterscotch rising and filling the craters and valleys with light for the miners, the flavor of pudding when he was a child, the crumbles of cookies that slid from his spoon, until Earth—now an occasional dot in the sky like a fly on a mirror—snuck through an unnoticed crack in his mind. He sealed himself off from the rest of humanity, swatting his memories on

ERED Chapter 13 - Not destined for too much Mental Lucidity but I still try.

ERED Chapter 13 - Not destined for too much Mental Lucidity but I still try.

On the futon still in my Atlas Suit and partly curled up like a big old smelly hound in a basket I am in REM sleep - I hope. Inside my head though, I am on an expansive wasteland plain. The site somehow recognisable, but in this age or just this timeline of reality not so cratered, despite far more of those dog headed statues. The monuments look pristine as if just formed standing as markers each ones nose aimed as part of a far greater alignment - a conjunction of intent. The many forming an unholy whole akin to the manner in which Monopods meld into the singular essence of the Overmind.

The skies in this created Mechanical Universe can be pretty far out - and I do not mean distant - but something is wrong with this one. The heavens actually - feel - infected, rancid, bloated corrupted. Lighting flashes overhead but somehow barely illuminates the lifeless realm below. It is not a clean white burst of crackling energy instead the bolts morph into a weird fractured scattering of iridescent lurid hues as if fed through some invisible prismatic maze. The hues scrabble around as if frenzied worms over and under the body of the bloated, sickly, venomous and horribly encroaching cloud forms.

I know instantly the sky above is acidic and deadly but this is no standard toxic world. It is as if the toxicity is emerging from somewhere else and it brings a darkness rolling in with it an inky oily suffocating midnight hue of misery and suffering. That was how the inner vision began…

Sometime later, (though not very long as chronometers measure progress in the real world), I wake amazingly not sweating inside the Atlas Suit but for a moment, my hands do shake uncontrollably though it is not fear today more a sort of nervous over stimulation as if I have been shot full of electricity. Whilst in places, I much preferred the previous vision of the ChairGek or even if I must the crazy Korvax with his too sharp tools, the end of this latest offering granted some compensation to my weary vagrant soul. How strange in review it is, previously I had dismissed the Rogue Korvax vision - at first - as just a simpler dream. A patchwork piece of fact and added imaginative fiction a result of stress following the events upon ‘Jallakka’s Wake’, but during my mental meeting of the Occultist Gek, I had instant awareness of that individual’s external reality - it fair pulled at me.

So here is the dirty low

[Critique] 20F: "Titanium" - David Guetta/Sia cover

Yeah... I realized after singing this a few times that it probably isn't a beginner level song due to the voice control and range required, but fuck it. I've been listening to it a lot lately, so I decided to give it a go.

Since the instrumental consists purely of piano instead of dance music, the original melody for the lyrics seemed a little repetitive/boring, so I tried to mix it up, but I have a feeling I got a bit too creative. Also, I cheated by only attempting the high note once - and once was enough :P

Finally, I would have posted this with a voice type/genre tag, but I don't know my voice type or what genre I fall into. So if you have any input on that as well, I'd love to hear it.

Anyway. Here you go. Enjoy! (hopefully...)

"You cannot replace your deepest, truest desires." [Progress] [Long!]

The title is a song lyric that I've been repeating to myself like a mantra. It's actually having a profound effect on how I view myself.

Namely, that I truly want and need the following things:

1.) Respect

There has been a distinct lack of respect in my life. For me. For how I feel. For my concerns, problems, even my lifetime ambitions. And I certainly haven't had much of any for myself.

For the first time in a long while, I'm truly angry.

For years I've had a pattern of befriending people who are bad for me. Who brush off my concerns like they don't matter, tell me I'm overreacting, and try to pressure me into doing things that I don't want to. And I ate it all up ravenously, because I had nothing else, and no healthy model to base friendships on.

This ends today. Because goddammit, I deserve better.

I deserve mutual respect in any relationship, whether friendly, familial, or romantic. I deserve to have my decisions respected, not mocked and/or contested unfairly at every turn. I deserve to have people who support me for who I truly am, not for some fictional image that they want me to uphold. Because I'm done to death with having to hide who I am just to appease everyone around me. I'm building myself a spine, and it's made of reinforced titanium-alloy.

2.) Authenticity

For many many years I've been living behind a facade- I'm living a lie and I hate it. I want nothing more than to be free to be myself, as I truly am deep down. Maintaining this false self is incredibly draining, and it feels as fake as it is- I don't feel alive and in the present moment. It saps all of my effort and creative energy, and I end up stagnating, wasting away time that I'll never get back.

What I wouldn't give to live in the moment again. I only get one chance to be me, and I ain't gonna waste it.

As I've been repeating the titular lyric in my mind, I've begun to slowly assemble the tools to dismantle the false self and let the true self breathe free- I already feel a tiny little bit of wiggle room. There's only going to be progress from here on out.

3.) Positivity

Oh hell is this ever a big one. Self-esteem, silliness, a bright outlook on life and the future have all evaded me for so long. Even small stuff like treating myself to a little something nice, like a bath soap that I like the scent of (and produces a bit too much lather- SHIT LET'S BE SANTA). As my long-needed spine continues its construction, this will be sure to follow- if I have respect for

Improvements in audio technology have not enhanced my ability to understand song lyrics (I'm looking at you Sia!). But it does pay to search for the lyrics.

I swear for a long time I thought she was saying, "I am a dirty ho." when she was saying Titanium.

[TOMT] - Song - I'm looking for a song with a section very similar to David Guetta's Titanium, sounds futuristic

It has a tune very similar to David Guetta's Titanium 3:33 - 3:47. It's also very futuristic sounding, sort of like Tron Legacy background music. Recent, heard it on the radio but couldn't record it or listen to the lyrics...

Can you help me identify it?

My sister is a singer & recording wonderful music. She wants to become full-time singer for Bitcoin. Any ideas/lyrics?

She always dreamed about becoming a singer. Here's her voice which she recently recorded in a Salt Lake city studio: http://youtube.com/watch?v=nc-CleuA7gw (only music track with a titanium cover recording/no video yet) & by the way she's asked/will be glad for any ideas/thoughts in YouTube comments! (I would appreciate more comments/more watching - because it took a lots of hardwork to make this one, I personally changetipped her, maybe it will motivate to open her account in changetip on youtube)

When she planned to record "Titanium" she didn't knew a lot about Bitcoin (because we're living in different countries she's immigrated to U.S. from Russia & I'm myself still in Russia)

Would be thankful for any feedback on her voice/any ideas. She's very open about recording her next song about Bitcoin, but I wonder if there any lyrics writers who have some songs which could be performed with the voice character she has? I'm myself never written songs, but I know about Zhou Tongue & I've heard that he's quite popular within the Bitcoin community.

Warframe Stand Names

(originally posted in the JoJoFrame subreddit)

So my roommate and I were talking over this a while back while watching JoJo and I figured that, with all the thought we put into it, this was worth sharing with y'all wonderful folks here on Reddit.

For those who don't know, Warframe is an online Looter/Shooter with a constantly expanding roster of playable characters called Warframes, each of which has its own set of abilities and flavor.

So here we go, here are the names of the entire roster of Warframes (current as of the date of this post) if they were stands, as determined by my roommate and myself (with help from u/WingsOfVanity and u/PorygonBeam on Reddit and AndouRaiton on the Warframe Forums). Many frames have multiple names; that's just because we couldn't decide between the two. We chose names based on the following criteria:

  1. Must be named after a song , artist, or lyric.
  2. Must not already exist in current JoJo canon.
  3. Must somehow fit the Warframe's name, abilities, appearance, theme, or reputation.
  4. Must sound cool if shouted as a battle cry in a thick Japanese accent.
  5. Not necessary, but we tried to avoid songs specifically from movies or shows, such as theme songs or musical numbers. We broke this rule only for Hydroid and Frost because we love the names too damn much to say no to them.

Ash: Sexy Ninja (Ninja Sex Party)

Atlas: Rock You (Queen - We Will Rock You)

Banshee: Skrillex (Skrillex)

Baruuk: Hammer Time OR Can't Touch This (MC Hammer - U Can't Touch This)

Chroma: Dragon Force (Dragonforce) OR Imaginary Dragon (Imagine Dragons)

Ember: Start the Fire (Billy Joel - We Didn't Start the Fire)

Equinox: Hot And Cold (Katy Perry - Hot N Cold) OR Black or White (Michael Jackson - Black or White)

Excalibur: Blinding Light (Switchfoot - Blinding Light) OR Sword Swinger (Tobuscus - I Can Swing My Sword!)

Frost: Cold Shoulder (Adele - Cold Shoulder) OR Magic Number (Schoolhouse Rock - 3 Is A Magic Number)

Gara: Glass House (Machine Gun Kelly - Glass House) OR Shatter Me (Lindsey Stirling - Shatter Me)

Garuda: Bad Blood (Taylor Swift - Bad Blood) OR Raining Blood (Slayer - Raining Blood)

Gauss: Triple Gasoline (Manuel - Gas Gas Gas)

Cinemtic Coundown Episode 6: Mobile Orchesta (Japanese Edition)

Welcome Back to Cinematic Countdown and a year after The Midsummer Station was released Owl City released an acoustic EP, which was really good to listen to and see then in 2014 we got ultraviolet and made me have a lot of hope for his next album. Now in 2015 we got his newest album Called Mobile Orchestra and today we will be reviewing the Japanese Edition of the album which that is the version I own.

Mobile Orchestra - Owl City

  1. Verge (Feat Aloe Blacc) - After the intro to the albums is over on the Japanese edition we go into the first real song and omg it feels so much like a David Guetta track with the guitar melody feeling like it's trying to play titanium a little bit. The drop in the song is really generic making me wanting to skip the song and the whistling was not really good at all. Now Aloe Blacc didn't add much for me in this song and felt like he was trying to make another wake me up hit again. The lyric's are generic again making me to not enjoy this song at all and I have to say not even a remix of this song can make me like this song at all. This starts off them album with a disappointment for me.

  2. Up All Night - Now the 3rd track on the album is a song from the ultraviolet - EP, which was one of my favorite tracks, giving us an old Owl City style song that felt a little modern and I could feel the magic that helped me picture things in my head as I'm listening to this song. The synths that went really well with the piano were getting stuck in my head as I played this song a lot. The lyric's sound so better than what we got to the first track and what was on the midsummer station. This is like the first song on the album I fell in love with first time hearing. I love this song and still listen to it a lot. Great song to help this album give me a little hope for the rest of it.

  3. Tokyo (feat. SEKAI NO OWARI) - What do you get when you take my favorite artist Owl City and then take my favorite type of music J-Pop and put it together what do you get. This is Tokyo and Adam Young is singing about Tokyo again since the last time he sang about it was on Of June's Panda Bear. This song is so catchy getting stuck in my head. The production on this song is really good making me have more hope again for this album. The vocals from Sekai No Owari were really good and would've been cool to see this song performed live one day. Near the end, we get an electric guitar synth breakdown that was really cool to see on this song and this isn't t

A satirical "review" of Subnautica that actually began as a dream...

1000/1000 dead crewmembers. Would seek closure again!

Bereavement Simulator 2014

This game is an immersive exploration of what it would be like to have no friends because they all died. Having lost all of your friends to death by planetary impact, immolation, starvation, drowning, predators, and presumably suicide, you now face death by loneliness and abandonment. As the only person left alive amongst a tight-knit crew of would-be NPCs that were all suddenly killed, you must roam the endless ocean in search of a rumored alien support group.

The lingering tragedy kicks right off with a visceral explosion that brutally vaporizes a spaceship crew of thousands, leaving not a single soul in so much as one other lifepod alive. All corpses are ravaged and lost to the sea by the time your character may (or may not) work up the courage to recover their bodies in hopes of obtaining precious closure. The space contractors to whom the lifepod work was subbed-out deserve terrible Angie's List reviews, exemplified by yours being the only one that did not fatally disappoint its patron(s). Yours is fully functional and equipped for an extended shiva.

A giant, open sandbox world of possibilities await the player as they attempt to cope with having so few friends that are alive. You can blackout your eyes and fingernails with octopus ink, write screamo lyrics on your PDA, draw crude pictures in the sand (of your dead friends), rock back and forth in a ball throughout dozens of biomes, briefly turn to religion, craft a "stillsuit" that converts your bodily fluids to mind-numbing moonshine, or write acoustic emo lyrics on your PDA.

Connecting the dots as you unravel the mystery of the disaster (that terminated your friends) will only be a fleeting distraction from the grief and pain of their tragic passing, which is the true challenge of Subnautica. Try not to be overwhelmed by how difficult it will be to properly mourn them! The learning curve is quick, even if the grieving process is not. Simply build a sprawling underwater laboratory to be alone in with your misery! Turn to compulsive hoarding behaviors, filling the void within your soul with lots of lead, titanium, gold, and other material resources that the majestic ocean offers to those who are alive to bear that grace.... sigh.

Do you turn to travel to take your mind off life's bitter tribulations? Build a submarine that can take you anywhere but here, except yesterday! Building this vessel, the “Sea Hearse”

Song of the Week #107: Beautiful Pain

Welcome everybody to the second SotW of june! This week, we'll listen to 'Beautiful Pain', which is the fourth song featured on the bonus disc of The Marshall Mathers LP2 Deluxe Edition. This week's song is nominated by /u/shaun0183, which is his first nomination. Welcome to Song of the Week #107!

Considered one of Eminem’s most meaningful and least profane songs, this track marked the first time Sia and Eminem collaborated, (they have since collaborated again on his SHADYXV track 'Guts Over Fear'). Sia, at the time, was most well-known for her collaborations with David Guetta, featuring on his smash hits 'Titanium' and 'She Wolf'. Since however, she has made a name for herself with her chart-topping single 'Chandelier'.

Unfortunately Sia was attacked for collaborating with Eminem who’s considered to be quite homophobic with his often politically incorrect lyrics. Sia being a proud supporter of the LGBT community was guilted, and while she defended Eminem knowing he had nothing against the homosexual community, out of guilt she donated her proceeds from the song to the Los Angeles LGBT Center.

Every week there will be a new song that gets featured on top of the page. Users can leave a comment and the song that gets the most votes will be the new Song of the Week. Suggestions for improving the next post are encouraged.

Is there any music that you identify with (relating to RBN or inspiring)

Does anyone have any music that they identify with? Warning: All this music is about some pretty emotional stuff, so all together it seems very angsty.

La la la la by Naughty Boy- Evokes memories of being in the thick of it. Of all the lyrics here, this one is the one that paints the most familiar picture.

  1. Original http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3O1_3zBUKM8

  2. Remix White Panda x Gazzo http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LJpOUsQ3XTE

I hate everything about you so why do I love you by Three Day's Grace. It was originally about a couple, but when you are particularly tumultuous during Life After RBN, this song is very relatable. The metaphors are very easy to change.

  1. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d8ekz_CSBVg

Because of You by Kelly Clarkson- about the problems someone has out of getting out of a bad relationship. If anyone is dealing with anxieties because of being RBN I think you will enjoy this song.

  1. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ra-Om7UMSJc

Imagine Dragons- Radioactive. This is inspiring to me. I like to imagine it's about shaping up- having a revolution in myself. How I couldn't stop it even if I wanted to. How I'm changing and growing and nothing can go back to the way it was.

  1. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ktvTqknDobU

Dark Side By Kelly Clarkson- I've got to admit, I'm not really a fan of her music. I don't care for the beats and the overall sound. However I love the words. This song is about wanting someone to love you even if they see the "Dark Side" of you. This is particularly nice for me, because I know that I have panic attacks and sometimes my agoraphobia acts up and sometimes I just get angry for no reason and I just hide in my past mentally.

  1. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H5ArpRWcGe0

Highest Elation (a progressive house mix). The words in the beginning resonate with me. They talk about being a bit lost, and trying to discover yourself and understand your own mind. How lonely that is, but how amazing it is on a good day. I don't care for the original song though (this is a remix), so. Please give the first 4:36 a try!
