20 [M4F] Vermont/Anywhere Do you like Cars, Fine Food, or Old Music? Lets Talk.

A bit about me. I'm Italian, Swedish, and Scotch-Irish.

I'm a heavy equipment operator in a fine food warehouse. It's interesting and fun, but stressful.

I've enjoyed learning classic French cooking for the past 10 years, with a recent foray into Vietnamese and Korean cooking.

I really enjoy music from the '60s to the '80s stuff like Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd. I also enjoy music from New Orleans, stuff like The Treme soundtrack and Trombone Shorty.

I have a somewhat dark, cynical, and sarcastic sense of humor.

I've always enjoyed games from Settlers of Catan and Monopoly, to Factorio and Farcry.

My favorite show is Avatar The Last Airbender, favorite book is The Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy, and favorite movie(s) is/are Back To The Future.

I enjoy working on cars in my spare time.

If you want to know what I look like, just ask.

I'm looking for someone who can sustain an interesting and meaningful conversation but can also shoot the shit at two in the morning. Someone to play games and watch movies with. I want to hold a conversation for longer than a day.

I've rambled on long enough if any of that sounded interesting or you just want to know more about me I'd love to talk. !unlock

Booking WrestleMania 36: (lots of detail)

Hello gang. So I’ve seen multiple, multiple, multiple WrestleMania cards on the sub as of late, ranging from good to bad, however I’ve yet to see someone actually book the show. How do we get to the matches? How do the matches play out? What are the stories? In this booking I will create my ideal WrestleMania card, varying on the scale of realism. This is quite long with lots of detail, however I didn’t go mad with 6-8 paragraphs per match. Anyways, on with the show.

PRE SHOW:

1- Street Profits vs. The Authors of Pain vs. The Viking Raiders vs. The OC - Elimination Match for the vacant Raw Tag Team Championships

Rollins attacks Edge brutally one night on Raw (more on that later) and so as punishment, Rollins and Murphy are stripped of their Raw Tag Team Championships. Authors of Pain want to fight for their stable mates honour, Viking Raiders want to reclaim the titles, The OC say they never got a shot at the gold while Rollins and Murphy were champs, and Street Profits say they haven’t been given their big break yet. All these guys come to blows in the ring explaining why they deserve the match and so the match is declared official. Viking Raiders get the win and after the match, AOP look on at them as they celebrate atop the ramp, and that’s the feud going forward.

2- 24/7 Championship Scramble Match

I’d scrap the André The Giant Memorial Battle Royale as it’s just meaningless now, and really only used to get people on the show. I’m fine with that reasoning, but to make it more interesting, make it a 24/7 Championship Scramble. Here’s the rules: 30 men start, and it’s a pinfall and submission only battle Royale. That means you can exit the ring and roam freely around the arena. When you pin somebody they are eliminated and whoever pinned them becomes champion. I wrote out how this match would go but it was like 6 paragraphs so I’ll just leave it in the comments.

3- Natalya and Beth Phoenix vs. Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross vs. Fire & Desire vs. Sarah Logan and Ruby Riott - Elimination Match for the vacant Women’s Tag Team Championships

Kairi Sane and Asuka implode (again, more on that later) and so the Women’s Tag Team Championships are vacated. I’d use this match to attempt to build the division, establish characters, create stories etc. Beth Phoenix and Natalya are the workhorses, Beth using her strength, Natalya her submissions to take out the competition. Cross over the past weeks has become a psycho,

First DnD one shot: Wild-magic bingo

So for my first DMing, I made a one-shot all about a trickster god playing what he calls “High-stakes street bingo”. It’s bingo, but every number called triggers a magical effect on the private plane it takes place in. Winner gets a wish. One of the players said they wanted to play the same one-shot again, so it seemed like a success! For fun, I decided to show everyone the table I made with the effects and their numbers ——— High stakes street bingo:

  1. Beholder’s Eye — As a reaction, all characters gain the ability to curse another character 1 time, the cursed character instantly crit fails the action they are doing.
  2. One Little Duck — A single golden duck appears in the plane.
  3. Cup of Tea — All creatures pause whatever is going on and take a short rest.
  4. Knock at the Door — A random elemental appears around all major areas of the plane.
  5. Man Alive — All currently dead characters RESURRECT.
  6. Big Mix — All creatures swap items with the closest creature to them.
  7. Lucky Seven — All creatures gain 7 temp hit points.
  8. Garden Gate — All plants become awakened.
  9. Spine to Spine — All creatures are pulled towards the closest creature to them. A STR or DEX save of CR12 is needed to pry themselves apart, otherwise the pair are fused together permanently, needing to be medically separated.
  10. Monsters Den — A monster of CR1/2 appears next to every creature and only targets them. The monster is up to the discretion of the DM
  11. Improv Session — All players may make a request (within reason) for what happens to the plane/people, it happens.
  12. One Dozen — Everyone rolls a D100, if a player rolls 1-12, a giant hand descends from the abyss above and searches for them to carry them away.
  13. Unlucky for Some - If a character has the lucky feat (or Halfling trait), negate this effect. All creatures’ next roll is a fail.
  14. For the Shorties — All characters in the SMALL subclass permanently double in size [Medium]. (gain +2 on STR rolls and physical damage)
  15. Young and Keen — All characters become a child for 1 day. (D8+5 years)
  16. Sweet 16 — Instead of making a roll, a player may choose to instead roll a 16 one time in future.
  17. Dancing Queen — All players must make a charisma saving throw or begin uncontrollably dancing.
  18. Evil Unseen — Invisible hands appear in the plane and begin attempting to steal from and attack all creatures for one day.
  19. Goodbye Teens — All characters below the age of 20 are teleported to a specific spot on the map (

2018 Bonnaroo Rumor and Confirmation Thread

This is the 2018 Bonnaroo Rumor & Confirmation Thread, where we keep track of all the rumors, tours, likely, and unlikely artists that might be playing Bonnaroo. Please share any new information in the comments and I will try to update this thread as frequently as I can. Here's a look at back at our 2017 and 2016 Rumor and Confirmation Threads. Thank you u/bittsweet for the extra help!

Confirmed: (Artist confirmations, Bonnaroo confirmations)

Semi-Confirmed: (Talking with an artist at a show, roo clues) Note: Take this section with a grain of salt. Many people talk to artists and it turns out to be wrong, and we usually get a few roo clues incorrect

Possible: (Tour dates with Bonnaroo gaps, In the US in April & May)

Rumored: (Planned tour with no dates or early 2018 dates, speculations with no hard evidence)

Unlikely: (Tour dates that conflict with Bonnaroo but not impossible)

Out: (No Bonnaroo dates open, at other festivals, in Europe)

2018 ACL Fest Line-Up Speculation & Confirmation Thread

UPDATE: THIS THREAD WILL NO LONGER BE UPDATED, as we are t-minus 12 hours until the lineup drop. Thank you everyone who contributed and helped me make this the best it could be! If you have any feedback on how I could make this thread better for next year, please comment or DM me. Thank you!

###Welcome To The ACL 2018 Speculation Thread! Last update: April 30 @ 10:00pm

Hello ACL fans! As we inch closer to the official line-up drop (usually first week in May), I figured I would consolidate all line-up speculation and rumors in one place. I am basing the formatting off of the very well done speculation threads on r/lollapolloza and r/bonnaroo, so hat tip to those fine folks!

Please take all of this with a grain of salt. There is no way to include literally every band, so odds are that only a part of this will accurately be reflected on the official line-up. Also, I will do my absolute best to keep this as up-to-date as possible, but I am only one dude and thus might fall behind on updates on occasion. Please be patient! Lastly, if you have any updates you’d like to be reflected, feel free to comment below or DM me.

Quick notes on my process:

  • I am assuming acts that play in Austin in May or earlier to be in play. There is precedence for acts to play in May and still make it on the bill.
  • I will not include any acts that played ACL in the past two years. While I know there are some very limited cases of artists playing twice in a three-year span, it would be overkill to include the 300+ acts when 99% of them are out.
  • I will use my discretion to determine the validity of a source/rumor. Sorry in advance if you disagree.

Our categories are:

  • Confirmed: Confirmations straight from the festival, artist, or other directly-officiated sources
  • Highly Likely/Very Logical: Tour dates align with ACL dates, leaks from reliable sources, etc
  • Rumored: Chatter from fans, someone heard something, etc. Take this with a giant grain of salt!
  • Possible Playing other major festivals, playing C3 events, touring in the fall, etc. Basically, we have no reason to believe these acts are 100% out, but not enough info to solidify them as highly likely/confirmed.
  • Out: Conflicting tour dates, etc

Lindy Hopper's Starter Guide

Hi!

So, when I started dancing, I didn't educate myself much on the history of this dance and the culture it came from. I didn't listen to the people who told me to check out the old videos and listen to old music. To me, these people just didn't realize what was obvious to me - there are plenty of good quality, well-lit modern videos all over YouTube, with more coming out on a weekly basis. These were way easier to watch and understand than black and white videos with poor or no music synced, and bad lighting. I figured I could observe everything I needed to know about Lindy Hop just by attending dances and following the modern international scene through YouTube and attending events. I justified this decision to myself, saying people who cared about preserving and recreating the old stuff were probably just being needlessly rigid and behind the times. The same with music. I was still strict about wanting to only hear swing at dances, but plenty of good music albums were being released by modern swing bands. Why would I listen to old-timey, scratchy records when there was so much stuff coming out from bands I could actually pay to see live?

It was years before I realized the enormity of what I was missing out on. And when I think about it, there wasn't really a good reason for this, except that I didn't know where to find these videos and music. I recognized, in a general way, that it was important to study the history, but I never really did it. That all changed after a trip to Herrang and reading Frankie's autobiography, and it came as a shock to me to learn that people used to fight and scour to the ends of the earth to find "clips" of vintage dancing as recently as the 90s and early 2000s, because now almost everything is just sitting there on YouTube. So it came to me as an equal shock that, as far as I can tell, relatively few people actually study them these days. For evidence of that, you can note that many of the best vintage Lindy Hop clips on YouTube (some linked in this guide, some not) only have a few hundred hits, while the latest videos from the biggest dance weekends hit tens of thousands of views within a week of being released. For the record, I'm not saying this is good or bad.

Regardless, there’s been a lot of talk in this sub lately about the importance of people educating themselves on the history, culture, and music of swing dancing. But on the internet these days, there's way too much information out there to tell what informat

Pumped newbie in need of direction.

Intro:

Hey, everybody! As my title suggests, I am new to trombone and completely pumped (to the point that I have sought out a trombone subreddit after three days of playing)! I am posting here out of curiosity and sheer excitement, so maybe I won't get roasted by this community for the content and length of this post.


Background info:

I am 21 years old and I have been playing music for 11 years now. I started playing guitar in the 4th grade, trapset drums in the 5th, bass guitar in middle school, some piano here and there, and started singing this past year. I started writing music in the 7th grade and started producing/recording music in the 9th grade. I have developed a solid understand of theory over the years and am now in college as a music major.


Why trombone?

About a week ago, I decided to pick up a horn with serious intentions of learning it for the first time. Due to my experience in string instruments, the chromatic concept of the trombone's slide appealed to me. I also love the sound of the trombone in a variety of styles and genres (e.g. The Suffers, Snarky Puppy, Trombone Shorty). To top all of that off, my wife played trombone in high school (I played percussion), and her dad is a high school band director. Needless to say, trombone was obvious.


Level/State of playing:

As I stated previously, I have only been playing for three days now. After getting some basic pointers from my wife, I bought an Essential Elements book and have been learning out of it. Over the last three days, I have played through the first 30 exercises in the book while focusing on playing clean notes and not rushing the exercises. I sequentially learned the notes in order introduced one at a time through the first thirty exercises (F, Eb, D, C, low Bb, G, and the low A below the low Bb).

In the meantime, I have played around with the horn enough to figure out some songs (When The Saints Go Marching In, Half Time, Mary Had a Little Lamb) on my own due to my years of playing by ear.

Needless to say, the last three days have been great. I've had a lot of fun playing.


>Questions:

>1.) Am I risking the forming of bad habits by learning from the book on my own? Should I seek instruction from my father-in-law or an instructor, or will physical and online resources suffice?

>2.) What are some online resources that you would suggest? (I understand reading sheet music well, but I am look

Bonnaroo always pulls through! Yes to 2018!!!

This will be my 6th consecutive year returning to The Farm. Headliners are alright (been wanting to see Eminem for some time now, MUSE is a must see act, and The Killers always put on a great show), but this undercard is complete fire! Some may complain, but remember, only a handful of artists tour every year, plus bonnaroo doesn't USUALLY bring back artists for 3 years (under-card) and at least 5 years (headliners)...so it makes booking a bit tougher than you think ;) Acts that I am most excited for you say?! Introduce me to some new music if I haven't listed them down!

[WTT] I would love to trade unneeded books and school supplies for a tax deduction.

Need Unneeded Books and School Supplies for HS SLPS Students

Good day. I am a public school teacher at SLPS (St. Louis Public Schools), and I have a problem that you might be able to help me solve. I need help providing school supplies and independent novels and books to my students. I would really like to give my students the opportunity to read books beyond my relatively narrow curriculum. If you have middle school, young adult, or adult fiction or nonfiction books that are gathering dust in bookshelves or boxes in your home, I would love to take them off your hands. I would also love any pencils, pens, folders, markers, colored pencils, or notebooks that you might be able to provide. Your donation is tax deductible. All of my students are on the free and reduced lunch program and your assistance will improve their education. I will drive to meet you in a public location if you respond. Every book or resource you give will help a student to develop a love of reading!

Your clutter is their treasure!

Specific Information

Generally, I need middle school, high school, or collegiate fiction or nonfiction books and school supplies to support my students. I also generally need pencils, pens, folders, markers, colored pencils, or notebooks.

In addition to my general needs, I have very specific needs. I will list those specific needs below and cross them off as I receive them. Books will be listed first, then supplies. The links run to Amazon to give you an idea of what I’m looking for. I am specifically hunting for supplies that might be collecting dust around your home or office. However, if you would like to donate anything new, I can give you the address of my classroom from the e-mail address above.

Specific Books

Any middle school level novel or nonfiction book

Any high school level novel or nonfiction book

Any collegiate level novel or nonfiction book

Captain Underpants (any book in the series)

Diary of a Wimpy Kid (any book in the series)

Bone (any book in the series)

Yummy by G. Neri - Link

March: Book One or Two by John Lewis - Link

Black Like Me by John Howard Griffin - Link

Native Son by Richard Wright - Link

Holler If You Hear Me: Searching for Tupac Shakur by Eric Michael Dyson - Link

The Rose That Grew from Concrete by Tupac Shakur - Link

Events this week from The Boston Calendar. Thursday to Wednesday, December 4-10.

The 55th edition of a weekly (or at least weeks that aren’t Thanksgiving and when we don't forget) post highlighting interesting events around Boston, from The Boston Calendar:


Sick of the holiday season already? Charlie Brown was railing against the commercialism of Christmas back in 1965, and nothing’s changed yet, so you might as well embrace it. Throw on “This Christmas” and hug your sweetie by the fireplace. Go see a burlesque ballet, run with Santas in Speedos, or score some free hot cocoa. Do you feel it? That warm sensation in your tummy? That’s the Christmas spirit! And the whiskey you topped off your cocoa with. But mostly the Christmas spirit!

  • The City Awake social impact festival launches today and runs through December 13. The festival is partnering with 170+ local organizations for 50+ events highlighting Boston’s diverse community of world-class for-impact institutions and leaders. From Ted-style talks and expert panels discussing the world’s most pressing challenges, to workshops and hackathons showcasing prospective solutions. Mark your calendar for Saturday’s City Awake Expo and next Saturday’s Finale Party, both at District Hall. Various times, prices, and locations

  • The Boston Cyberarts Gallery hosts an opening reception for Comfortable Control: Vulnerability in the Digital Age, an exhibition from three local new media artists that explores our inherent vulnerabilities relative to digital technology. Typically characterized as impersonal, the digital technologies surrounding us are actually all products of human endeavors to connect, empathize, and belong. Like sometimes it’s 3 a.m. and you’re trying to sleep but there’s a fireworks show on the back of your eyelids because you’ve been staring at screens all day and it’s finally starting to go away but your phone is right there under your pillow and you could be connecting with so many Patriots articles, empathizing with Tom Brady, and belonging to a team. 12.4. 6p. FREE

  • If you happened to catch the New Orleans episode of Dave Grohl’s “Sonic Highways” show on HBO, you know they don’t call him [Trombone Shorty

CHICAGO Redditors: I need your help! Lost awesome care package for my girl outside Double Door 10/9...

Dearest Redditsphere,

Last night my band (currently on tour) played The Double Door in Wicker Park we lost something really really important: a blue wal mart bag full of special, unique presents I collected for my girl over 4500 combined miles of travel.

I'm not sure how (after the show I went back to the place we were staying sick with fever to try and get rest), but somehow during the time the rest of my bandmates finished loading our gear out of the club they accidentally left this blue Wal Mart Bag of Presents on N. Milwaukee (across the street from the smoke shop).

If ANYONE saw it, saw somebody pick it up, knows anyone who mentioned it in a recap of their evening, or has it or any info that could help me track it down...that'd be amazing. I love this girl, and I put a ton of thought into these gifts.

The contents of the bag are as follows:

  • handmade checkerboard stuffalo (brooklyn, ny)
  • 180 gram vinyl copy of "1983" by Daniel Johnston from Grimeys (nashville, tn)
  • a stick that looks like a unicorn i found while gathering kindling (santa fe, nm)
  • wildflowers from the painted desert (arizona)
  • petrified wood i stole from the petrified forest (arizona)
  • alien bookmark from roswell crash museum (roswell, nm)
  • trombone shorty fillmore poster from amoeba music (san fran, ca)
  • a used copy of the last unicorn from powell's books (portland, or)
  • handwoven japanese silk notebook (ashland, or)
  • handmade tibetan mala beads (denver, co)

Please share, spread the word. It'd mean alot.

Thanks, Brian

Playing instruments while high

Had an empty house tonight, so went onto the roof to smoke a quick bowl. Came back down and decided to go over and play piano. I soon spot some of our sing-a-long books and start jamming out hard core to song like "close every door" and "any dream will do" (this one was so much fun to play just improving on the chords) from Joseph and the technicolor dreamcoat and "learn to be lonely" from phantom of the opera (love this one because it shows the humanity of the phantom which makes him much more real and personal of a character)

After that, I broke out the old trumpet and trombone and put on some Trombone Shorty (If you haven't listened to it, stop reading, put on "hurricane season", and then resume reading). Trying to play along was super hard, but it was awesome when I managed to consistently play a few of the licks.

Side note: my mom called me to tell me to go on the roof and look at the clouds while I was typing this. Will report back later.
