Religion and Sexuality Course (College)

2020.08.26 18:55 Prince_Of_Angels Religion and Sexuality Course (College)

I recently started Fall classes at school. I'm taking one class, and it's based upon how religious institutions and religious culture influence our understanding of human sexuality.
We were to write a short essay on what we were taught about sex as a child, and I want to share my thoughts based upon my own upbringing in the Church.
As a child, I was taught that sex was something experienced by two adult people, as an act of bonding. As it is, I'm not necessarily sure what I was taught, but from what I remember, that was the gist of it. As I got older, and as I was indoctrinated into the Church, it was taught more as means to keep producing children, with sexual expression outside of that viewed as contrary to His will. It was taught that God blessed us and wanted us to procreate.
As I grew older, and I sought understanding, as well coming to terms with my own sexuality (bisexuality), I figured that sex was something special a person can give of themselves to another. As well, my view of what the Church taught changed, as it was made apparent that it was a selfish justification (they want more to indoctrinate). Relating to that, they seem to look down upon contraception (condoms, birth control, IUDs), as official doctrine states that "every action which, whether in anticipation of the conjugal act, or in its accomplishment, or in the development of its natural consequences, proposes, whether as an end or as a means, to render procreation impossible" is intrinsically evil" (CCC, 2370). In other words, contraception is a grave sin because it closes the life-giving act of sexual intercourse to one of pleasure, either for one partner or for both partners.
Official Church teaching also seems to "other" LGBTQ persons as "intrinsically disordered" and that same-sex sexual expression is a sin. Denying someone the right to their own bodily pleasures because they are LGBTQ, or denying LGBTQ couples the opportunity to express their love and commitment because they are of the same gender, is ludacris. It's placing a double standard on sexual expression: heterosexual couples can have sex but homosexual couples can't because it's "evil" and "depraved". "Basing itself on Sacred Scripture, which presents homosexual acts as acts of grave depravity, tradition has always declared that "homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered." They are contrary to the natural law. They close the sexual act to the gift of life. They do not proceed from a genuine affective and sexual complementarity. Under no circumstances can they be approved" (CCC, 2357).
As of now, I have moved away from the Church chiefly due to the abuse scandal, as well as other differing opinions on a moral standpoint (LGBTQ rights), and I cannot help but feel liberated from its ideology. I feel as if the Church was hypocritical to make these justifications of sexuality because of that matter. I pray that the Church will reform its teachings in a way that they respect all expressions of sexuality, no matter to contraceptive use, gender identity, nor sexuality.
I hope you can relate to my own feelings and views. I hope you liked reading it as much as I did writing it.

2020.08.23 09:40 jerichoneric With a final record of 3/6/1 (win lose draw) I'm retiring from multiplayer

So I've owned a version of air 2 since release but never played the multiplayer because it never seemed interesting to me.
I recently tried to get into multiplayer because I wasn't getting a challenge out of the AI anymore and I've been watching a lot of SotL and I felt like I could try, but honestly playing online is just too tense for me. Sure I've won a couple games, and only one of them I was entirely carried, but I was terrified the whole time. What I didn't realize is that now that I was online I had actual people relying on me. I had always been dragged down by dumb ai partners, but now I could become the weight.
The other problem was that I never felt like I had enjoyed the game in the moment most of the time. I look back on most of the games and I'm just silently building and so are my teammates. Im not surprised a random match with a bunch of newer players would be like this, but I feel like without knowing the other players and having discord or something I won't have fun most of the time. The 2 games that actually went well and I helped win were the two with teams that talked and joked.
Either way I'll be heading back to the nice casual pit of turbo fast 2v2 ludacris black forest 500 population to relax.

2020.07.19 00:00 blackcatt42 Therapy and abortion?!

Hey, I hope this is okay to post here. I didn't know how to tag this as needing emotional support.
I am the worst at articulating my thoughts but I am going to do my best, so I am sorry. I have posted here before, often in threads and a few times on my own, I experience a great deal of inner turmoil with my feelings and events surronding my abortion. I am very sad, paranoid and lost to summarazie. I recently reached out for paid therapy through a popular app, as many people in my area dont respond to my inquiry. I am hoping to gain some insight from you guys about your experiences finding a therapist and talking about your abortion, I know it can be hard to find a good therapist and I dont expect it to be perfect but I am wondering if my concerns are valid or if I am perhaps self sabotagig/gas lighting myself, a shame I even need to ask but alas my mental heatlh is not great- especially around this subject. As: I mentioned I used an app and it connected me to a man in Louisaina, ironically on the same day they announced their repeal of birth control. I tried to not let this make me fearful as it is ludacris to judge someone based on where they are from, I looked up the stats ( why do I do this to myself) and it seems the state is 60/40 split on the subject which arent great odds but again, someones physical location is not a testiment to what kind of person they are but I hope it gives some insight into how paranoid and fearful I can be. To get into it, these are the things that I am not sure are red flags or me just gas lighting myself and I hope I it is okay to talk about here as I know the community is a.safe b. understands the stimga surronding abortion.
He said he was going to send me some things on ruminationg, and was about to explain what it was and I expressed I am familair but would like the resources. He never sent them. Funny that im ruminating rn.. lol..
Do these concerns seem founded in reality? I do tend to be extremely paranoid and afraid when it comes to my abortion, I have an irrational fear that it puts me in danger and that was my main concern of seeking therapy, my quality of life is severly impacted by this SO I dont want to give up, if I am just being delusional but with the controversy of the topic I want to talk to someone who understands and respects my beliefs. Thanks, please feel free to share your experiences with therapy or emotional turmoil if you have any surronding your abortion, I am so sad and I want to give up but I know I have to keep fighting. Thanks for reading ❤

2020.04.29 01:34 CyrusWaugh (Almost) Every Pop star collaboration ranked

Pop stars in country songs, that has become the biggest trend these days, 2018, it was making wedding songs, 2019 was talking about how country somebody was, and 2020 is making sure you have a major label pop artist on your song, literally go through the years and the number of these collaborations just get bigger and bigger, I’m sure it was noble early on to have a pop star on a country song, and it had more meaning back then as it was a rare occurrence, nowadays it honestly lost its meaning, oh wow, this artist is on this song, nowadays, I’m not shocked they are and I’m not excited that they are. Florida Georgia Line started this downwards spiral of collaborations and this trend is far from evaporating, so I’m going to rank all these collabs and stars making “country music”. However Old Town Road is not on this list, because people know at this point it isn’t country and realize it was never intended to be released as a country song, it’s it’s own entity and we should leave it that way, so let’s get through this as I say which ones work and which ones don’t. There are some I may forget, these songs are just off the top of my head.
  1. My Truck-Breland
I was considering whether or not it deserved its own spot, as this dude isn’t signed to a Nashville label, and I don’t want to give this song any buzz, the more buzz you give a song like this whether you’re saying its good or bad makes it trend, and this a song I don’t want to trend whatsoever, its getting ready to drop off the chart as they are releasing a version with Sam Hunt all of a sudden hoping it gives it a shred of streams. I don’t like trap music whatsoever. However I know when a song is doing something right, even trap. This isn’t the case in the slightest, the song is boring, its trap beat is extremely weak. And I’d honestly call it a snap track rather than a trap song. The song’s structure doesn’t make sense, and the lyrics are just drab, and trap lyrics are drab but this takes it to another level. I think its is going to be forgotten once hormonal teens stop using it on tik tok. And hopefully this will send country trap into the forgotten abyss along with bro country.
  1. Back Porch Bottle Service-AJ McLean
I feel like this would’ve been a successful hit in the late 90’s but releasing in the late 2010’s was a mistake. This is forgettable in almost every aspect. The melody in stupid, lyrics just scream desperate. And the production is extremely terrible. I don’t have much to say about, I can’t find anything profound, or interesting to talk about it, it is a blank slate of a song, which explains why it is stuck at the bottom with My Truck.
  1. Coming Home-Keith Urban ft. Julia Michaels
The opening piano chords make it seem like a reflective mature song, and then you get the insult that is the bastardzation (is that even a word) of the chord of Mama Tried by Merle Haggard, one of the most beloved country songs of all time, they literally copy and paste that chord and tear it to shreds. They do the same thing with the chorus, it isn’t that bad of a song, it is just bland, but its that chord that infuriates me, there are some lines you don’t cross, that is one of them. Julia Michaels sounds like she’s grasping for breath when she comes, but when we get to the chorus she sounds fine. It’s just a mess, a mess I don’t really feel that invested in.
  1. This Is Us-Jimmie Allan ft. Noah Cyrus
I know songs from Phineas & Ferb with this narrative that sound way better, and I’m not joking, there are a lot of Phineas & Ferb songs that are really good. Basically what I’m saying is: go watch Phineas & Ferb, its not just for kids and also watching that is better than listening to this pile of vanilla. There is nothing truly wrong, it just is an overproduced song that does nothing. The lyrics don’t feel relatable. The lyrics are incredibly simplistic as well as the melody. If you’re gonna do straight up pop music then at least make it sound good, the top 40 has a bunch of songs teeming with life like Circles or Blinding Lights. If you want to bastardize a genre at least put in the effort.
  1. Lost In The Middle Of Nowhere-Kane Brown ft. Becky G
I don’t really know much about this one, I think it is bland, I think it has interesting words and is pretty catchy, but I don’t really understand what this song is about, I think it has the same narrative of Lose It. That’s it, it’s bland. It likes to repeat lyrics several times, and if I don’t have much to say in terms of a song from here on out, I’m implying there is nothing to take from listening to it whether that is good or bad.
  1. The Champion-Carrie Underwood ft. Ludacris
Cry Pretty was a really bad album, I’ll even say it is the worst album in Carrie Underwood’s catalog and possibly the worst mainstream album of 2018, and its because of songs like this. It wants to be this big workout song, I’ve seen better attempts at this like God’s Country, or Loud & Heavy (I use them as workout songs don’t judge me) I will say Ludacris does a pretty good job. I like how they use Champion as an acronym, but Carrie just doesn’t bring it at all, one of the weakest vocal performances from her. One of the best voices in music overall went to making some of the most drab music.
  1. Take Back Home Girl-Chris Lane ft. Tori Kelly
This is a really cheesy song. Everything about this song is extremely cringey. This feels like a song that has the same narrative as a stereotypical small-town boy & girl hallmark film. It follows the standard checklist of boyfriend/bro lyrics. I’m not emotionally invested in the story, and Chris Lane just doesn’t sound good and nor does Tori Kelly which is honestly shocking.
  1. The Bones-Maren Morris ft. Hozier
Out of all the artists available you got Hozier. Look I don’t like that The Bones is number one on the country charts, but I think The Bones is a solid pop song, similar to my opinion of Body Like A Back Road. Maren Morris definitely has an earworm with this song, its become the biggest hit of her career since My Church. I just do not like Hozier on this, his voice is so annoying on this track, everything works with this song, I admit I slightly enjoy this song. But I hate the version with Hozier. I think he doesn’t harmonize with Maren Morris at all. I’m glad this was the first number one for a woman since 2015, I would’ve preferred More Hearts Than Mine or I Hope You’re Happy Now but what are you gonna do.
  1. The Other Girl-Kelsea Ballerini ft. Halsey
I’m infuriated they made this the next single rather than Half Of My Hometown, Halsey is going to get the most buzz, so I get why. This is bad vocally, and production wise it is nothing special, however lyrically it is interesting. I’m actually impressed in terms of lyrics. What I really enjoy is lines like whose the diamond whose the pearl. If they changed the melody and production I would enjoy this way more, but I can only take it as the overall package which is why it isn’t in the top 10.
  1. Cool Anymore-Jordan Davis ft. Julia Michaels
Jordan Davis normally does a good job in terms of crossover songs. This isn’t really the case, I like how they say you don’t have to be cool anymore, but they repeat that so many times, take a shot every time they say that, you will be wasted. It is way too repetitive for my taste. I’m not keen with the production here either, whereas on other songs like Single You Up or Take It From Me, it is really fun. Here it is just too forgetful.
  1. Nobody But You-Blake Shelton ft. Gwen Stefani
I’m surprised this song is succeeding as well as it is. It is a mess all over the place, but it is a decent mess. I hate when people bring up roads nowadays, that is the one thing no matter where this genre goes will stay, whether its bro pop or boyfriend country, that one aspect stays no matter what. I don’t really like Gwen Stefani in the song. He’s written way better songs for his partner like God Gave Me You, a far better song than this. This can only dream to be as good as it. I think this song is pretty catchy but I’ve never imagined people would enjoy this song as much as God’s Country. So kudos to Blake Shelton, he’s back in a very big way, I wish I could say the same for Miranda Lambert.
  1. Last Time I Say Sorry-Kane Brown ft. John Legend
Eh
I like it to a degree, It is way too simplistic for my taste. I would love for them to say what actually happened but if you can’t, why create this song in the first place? What are you sorry about, I need to know these things in order to relate to this song. I think John Legend sounds pretty good, his voice is amazing, can’t really say the same thing for Kane Brown, he rarely uses his bass voice anymore, which is where Kane Brown shines, it is a good pop song, but why not put this on the pop chart, this would succeed way more there, its not me complaining that its on the country chart, it isn’t insulting enough for me to hate it, you’re losing money putting this primarily on country radio. I don’t get labels sometimes. I thought their number one goal was to make money not lose it.
  1. 10,000 Hours-Dan + Shay ft. Justin Bieber
This isn’t as bad as many people say, and its not as good as many people say. It’s a song that plays it safe, if this was released in 2010, this would’ve succeeded as much as it does now, there is nothing outlandish about this song but nothing profound either, its an earworm sure, but it’s a cheap love song. I scratch my head when I think about this song, cause its not a 5/10 or worse nor a 8/10, I am all over the place when talking about this song. It has banjo sure, its not a snap track so I’m not gonna complain, I say let it be .
  1. You Should Be Sad-Halsey
This is a diss track. This feels more like a rock song more than anything, I like this song quite a bit, I like the lyrics a lot. They are really hurtful and full of pain sadness, and especially bitterness. I think it is a bit simplistic melodically. I get what’s going on with her and G-Eazy so I can empathize as well. This makes Gaslighter look like a fit compared to this song.
  1. One Thing Right-Marshmello ft. Kane Brown
The further we go, the more bombastic the songs. Its not “I Got Away With You” but it is solid, I like the guitar throughout. Lyrically its okay, it’s not a simplistic song like a lot of this list. But my favorite thing in a song is lyrics and I usually am never satisfied with these pop crossovers. I don’t like Kane Brown’s voice in a majority of his new releases, he tries to sing like a pretty boy, instead of the rugged bass voice he is.
  1. Women-Florida Georgia Line ft. Jason Derulo
I’ve gone on record saying that Women is in fact a good song, but it came out at the worse time, where for the very first time there was no women in the top 20 radio, and you release a song about loving and appreciating women. That was a major mistake. I think out of all the songs about loving women, this was the best. I wasn’t the biggest fan of Women Amen and I really didn’t like Female by Keith Urban. However I like this song a lot because it sounds like a legit R&B song, not a defective clone, not a poor copy, just a solid R&B song. I like the lyrics Jason Derulo brought to the table. This is one of the rare occurrences where a snap track works, I like the vocal power they bring, so this song gets a thumbs up from me. Just they shouldn’t have released it when they did, because it backfired.
  1. Setting The World On Fire-Kenny Chesney ft. P!nk
I’m not he biggest fan of the intro, the drum loop feels so cheap, however the first few lyrics make up for that. Chesney doesn’t do the best job vocally but P!nk makes up for that, she sounds great. Pretty much make this a P!nk song and get rid of Kenny. I’m sorry but he doesn’t sound good on this track. Kenny’s too old to reach those high notes so I get why its happening. It’s a nice middle lane song that I can get behind
  1. Meant To Be-Bebe Rexha ft. Florida Georgia Line
To follow up u/Notwith10000men just because I don’t like a song, doesn’t mean its not good. This is in fact a good song, but it is ridiculous that this song is considered country, I get why it was number one for 50 weeks, look at the streams and sales, and I understand why it was as successful as it was, it is a jam, and sure it is the poster boy for every pop crossover, having a snap track, talking about how they love a girl and wanting to get her on a road in 2 minutes and 45 seconds. Pardon my French but the song just slaps. I’m not just primarily invested in country and I know a good pop song when I see one. I enjoy it a lot, because it does pop right unlike so many other rejects on the country chart trying to achieve the same exact thing. Florida Georgia Line don’t really offer much, that’s why it is credited to Bebe Rexha. I wish the duo could do more, because they are capable of doing it, I just hate that it denied so many good songs in 2018 a number one spot.
  1. Heartless-Diplo ft. Morgan Wallen
Diplo doesn’t have a place in country music, but nonetheless, this is pretty fire. I can’t believe I’m using all these unprofessional words, but I have no other way of describing this. Everything just works, it moves fluidly, Morgan Wallen brings it with his raspy vocals, the second verse is just insanely catchy. Sure it is a standard break up song with nothing truly unique, but the way they move the words is done so well, mostly because Diplo is a pop artist who actually knows what he’s doing (except on do si do which is hideous) I don’t see it as country, but similar to Women by FGL I see this a pop song not a cheap knock off.
  1. Cruise (Remix)-Florida Georgia Line ft. Nelly
I’m probably over ranking this but I don’t care. I know the original is far better, but there is just something that brings me back to the remix, I was not a fan of a lot of the songs being put out overall in 2013. So the remix was a nice thing to hear on the radio, everything non country just didn’t click for me but this did. Nelly does a good job with this song, because he’s a professional rapper, Tyler Hubbard needs to stay away from rap, after 3 tracks of him doing it, he is just so bad at it. Out of all the remixes of country songs like Tequila and Dirt Road Anthem, this is by far the best.
  1. Keeping Score-Dan + Shay ft. Kelly Clarkson
This is a bit overlooked with all the hits these two have. It isn’t an overproduced boyfriend song, or a wedding song. This is more in every aspect, it has Dan + Shay’s vocal power, nice lyrics, it has a simple message of living life to the fullest, Kelly Clarkson and the duo blend amazingly. Kelly Clarkson is probably my favorite out of all the female features. This reminds of a song by Rascal Flatts, back in the day they were known for creating power ballads. The bridge is pretty repetitive so that docks it down a bit. But this is one of the best songs in Dan + Shay’s catalog as 90% of their stuff is so vanilla. Check it out, you won’t regret it.
And my favorite pop collab is:
  1. Say Something-Justin Timberlake ft. Chris Stapleton
In order to make a good collab you need two people who understand the genre and are truly passionate about it. These two are those type of artists, Justin and Chris care deeply and that care created this song, it is a rootsy smash. It isn’t an overproduced vanilla track nor a laid-back reflective song. Both blend to create a beautiful harmony. I still don’t know what this song is about, but I truly don’t care. The music video version adds another layer of praise, as it is more grounded in terms of instruments and production. Its ironic how the one guy who refused to go with the norm, created a traditional masterpiece went on to have the number one country album of the decade, and got to collaborate with some of the biggest names in music. While everyone else scrambled to be just like these pop stars and got nowhere.

2020.04.07 06:27 howanonymouscanyoube I watched Crash (2004)

What a load of shit!
I bet every Angelino elite patted themselves on the back for this one. I bet cops fucking loved it. Sandra Bullock pulls off her best performance as herself until she embraces her servant and lies. She is her own best friend and her own worst enemy; her husband is a neoliberal sociopath chasing prestige. The working people, the desperate people are portrayed as dindus by the condescending producers of this shitheap, an insult to the socioeconomic conditions that lead to crime.
Ludacris is what, some sort of honorable thief? Property is the real theft. Beware the yellow peril! He frees the cambodians destined for slavery in the streets; a good deed - but there is no lasting happiness in this act as a refugee slumps against a wall unsure of what to do next as snow falls on Los Angeles and the former slaver urges his loving wife to cash the check.
The cop who did nothing as his former partner molested a woman based on his own prejudices, then defused a dangerous situation with her husband the next day, succumbs to fear and mistrust, damning himself. Heavy? Sure - yet contrived! All the man had to do was say "Oh hey Saint whatever, I have one of those!" "yeah?" "Yeah, see?" "Haha oh wow my fears were misplaced."
Goddamn, Hollywood loves stoking racial tensions, don't they? I bet a million morons walked away from this going "YeAh but WHAt if he had A gUn"
Meanwhile, the racist rapist cop doesn't change. He's succumbed to his fears, not seeing the true enemy - not the man of color, it is the man of wealth. No, no he seeks solace in prejudice instead. Your dad has a pissing problem? Join the fucking club - no, not that one! We don't wear robes, we just drink lots of water and hope for the best.
And the detective - alright pal, you're a little racist too (she's half puerto-rican and half honduran, not mexican), and you shouldn't speak to your mother that way, and while the white man is giving you a position to secure his own bullshit you can use that position to ease tensions. Maybe he wants an uncle tom, but you could be an obama instead (that is, empower your community instead of uncle tomming it.)
His relationship with his mother was complex but played all too briefly. Should have been a movie about that detective, that was the most interesting part; how does he and his family feel about him leaving the projects to become a homicide detective on the most racist police force in the nation? Give me 2 hours of that instead of 20 minutes.
Michael Pena knocks it out of the park yet again. Bit typecast, you know, but if you're good at playing up the dindu to the racist money people I mean I guess you gotta eat. The Farsi characters were pretty believable too, I mean I totally get the motivation of Baba and his stubborn, willful ignorance.
Altogether, this was a lukewarm film jerking off the Angelino elite and moralizing class inequality and racial tension. Load of shit.

2020.01.22 19:50 TheRoyalGodfrey [DISCUSSION] BlakRoc - BlakRoc (10 Years Later)

BlakRoc is a studio album by American rock band The Black Keys, in collaboration with Damon Dash, co-founder and former co-owner of Roc-A-Fella Records, who oversaw the project. The album features guest appearances from several hip hop and R&B acts, namely Mos Def, Nicole Wray, Pharoahe Monch, Ludacris, Billy Danze of M.O.P., Q-Tip of A Tribe Called Quest, Jim Jones and NOE of ByrdGang, as well as Raekwon, RZA and the late Ol' Dirty Bastard of Wu-Tang Clan.
After Damon Dash began listening to Ohio-based rock duo The Black Keys, which he says quickly became his favorite band, he reached out to the musicians to meet in person. Dash suggested they enter the studio with his friend and associate, New York City-based rapper Jim Jones, with whom Dash had recently partnered to form Splash Records. While recording with co-producer and engineer Joel Hamilton at Studio G, Brooklyn rapper Mos Def, interrupted the session and ended up recording with them as well. With new artists being called in to work on the album, it was completed after eleven weeks of recording. Included in the project are vocals from deceased rapper and former Roc-A-Fella Records artist Ol' Dirty Bastard, tapes which were signed over to his brief Roc4Life venture under Def Jam, with the intention of an eventual album release. In order to release Blakroc, Dash founded an independent record label in conjunction with the band.

2019.08.07 01:52 BeNerdy Price increase conundrum

I recently the price increase letter to say my contract is going up by £4 per month which is just ludacris considering I'm already paying £64 per month for a package they now have on their website for £33. I called today to try and work out a deal with retention and was told I have no right to any discounts as we recently moved house and the discount they can apply then resets apparently so they couldn't offer anything remotely reasonable.
I feel as if they've royally shafted me on this one then just shrugged it off. Looked Sky as they have some good deals but the issue is they use BT lines for their fibre which is just awful in my area so I'm a bit stuck with Virgin really as their broadband is unparalleled in my area.
As I was told their website offers are all for new customers only, I had the idea of cancelling and setting up a new deal in my partners name to get a website offer. Has anybody else had any experience doing this in a similar situation at all?

2019.05.03 17:41 KaiKaiBankai An attempt at an honest and fair look for the worst summonable LR

To begin, this post is my personal opinion and these opinions are not facts. They should not be taken as factual though they should, in my opinion, be considered with careful thought. This is a fair, unbiased comparison of every summonable LR(Japanese version) to help determine which truly is the “worst unit.” This in no way means the card(s) are bad, they are simply the worst in a bunch of absolute monstrous units.
LR INT Goku and Vegeta(Super Vegito) -
Leader skill - Potara category 3 ki HP & ATK 170%, DEF 130% and INT types 3 ki with 90% to all stats.
Passive skill - Attack and Defense 120%, Ki +2 in addition per rainbow ki sphere obtained. Fuse when conditions are met(6 turns must pass as well as fall under 50% total HP)
What can be said about LR Vegito that hasn’t been already? I won’t waste time speaking of a unit that’s to this day still praised as one of, if not the, best. Bolstering one of the best categories in the game, an amazing attack/defensive stat and a passive to ensure that incredible 18 ki+ damage. This unit IS not in contention for the “worst.”
LR PHY Goku and Vegeta(DBZ Gogeta) -
Leader skill - Fusion category 3 ki HP and ATK 170%, DEF 130. PHY types 3 ki and 90% to stats.
Passive skill - Attack and Defense 120%, Ki +2 in addition per rainbow ki sphere obtained. Fuse when conditions are met(6 turns must pass as well as fall under 50% total HP)
LR Gogeta and Vegito are mirrors of one another, copied passives and incredible transformations. I won’t waste time on a unit that is very clearly not in contention for the “worst.”
LR SSJ2 Gohan -
Leader skill - INT types 3 ki and 90% to all stats.
Passive skill - ATK 18% per ki sphere obtained, and ki +1 whenever ki is raised with ki spheres.
The OG! The first ever summonable LR and the only unit to have mega-colossal on both his 12 and 18 ki attacks. LR Gohan is seen by very few as the “worst” however it is still a topic of debate. Bolstering the highest potential attack stat in the entire game, having impressive links in shocking speed and PFB on top of the best ki passive in the entire game should leave very little left in discussion for this unit. While his defense can be a liability it DOES not out-way his incredibly damage. This unit is not in contention for the “worst.”
LR Broly -
Leader skill - STR types 3 ki and 90% to all stats.
Passive skill - When performing a super attack, ATK +80,000 but DEF -20,000, and launch a guaranteed additional super attack.
The world tournament king! LR Broly is one of the most divisive units in the game to this day. A flat passive never ages well in comparison to a percentage boost, however Broly’s damage has shown time and time again. While modern events do(slowly) get progressively more difficult, his defense down gimmick has proven to be a passive liability. Two BIG attacks hovering between 1.4m and 2.2m is always impressive, however ignoring the blatant lack of defense can not be ignored. Some even make the argument that the EZA LSSJ Broly is better than this LR which in itself shows how ineffective at times this unit can be. This unit IS in contention for the “worst.”
LR Goku Black & Zamasu -
Leader skill - TEQ types 3 ki and 90% to stats.
Passive skill - Recover 15% HP at start of turn; attack 30%+ per attack received up to a max of 120%.
LR Black is seen as one of the best LRs in the game by many, and to be fair.. it’s hard to argue this. As HP Values raise, their passive only increases in value. While you may struggle to achieve their 18 ki super every now and again, you’ll never be hurting for HP. Absolutely an incredible unit with not much left to say. This unit is NOT in contention for the “worst.”
LR Majin Vegeta -
Leader skill - AGL types ki +3 and 90% to all stats.
Passive skill - ATK 150% when launching a super attack.
LR Majin Vegeta is another heavily divisive unit. Some say he’s underrated(which is the boat I’m in) some say he’s one of the worst. Now here me out, 150% is monstrous, I believe very little people would argue this. Yes, I agree that JUST a 150% passive with no added gimmicks is “boring” however Majin Vegeta is one of the fastest, strongest, and easiest LRs to use. His 12 ki+ is his mega-colossal which some feel is a hinderance, however it’s incredible. How often do you miss 18 ki super attacks on units without ki passives? I personally do fairly frequently due to poor orb spawns. Some say “oh you’ll never use him in world tournament so his 18 ki+ is awful.” While his 18 ki is factually worse for damage, it’s not weak. The 150% passive on an LR is crazy and he still easily shoots out well over a 2m attack stat just for existing. This unit IS NOT in contention for the “worst.”
LR SSJ1 Trunks -
Leader skill - PHY types ki +3 and 90% to all stats.
Passive skill - ATK 120%; high chance to preform a critical hit.
Oh boy.. at one point.. yes I would’ve agreed Trunks is the worst LR. However now with the PHY EZA Trunks I believe it’s fair to say that this units true value and potency has been revealed. An incredible link set, an absolute massive chance to critical, the best linking partner you could ask for.. the list goes on. His damage speaks for itself. This unit IS NOT in contention for the “worst.”
LR SSJ3 Goku -
Leader skill - Super TEQ types ki +4 and 100% to all stats; extreme TEQ ki +2 and 70% to stats.
Passive skill - DEF 120%; ATK 180% when launching an ultra super attack, DEF -70%.
Ok.. Ok.. now here me out once again. This unit GOOD, I won’t deny nor should you. Attack 180% on a unit is INSANE, however.. this unit requires the most setup out of maybe any LR. Having to build around a unit is expected in certain scenarios however this unit is simply not worth it. While yes, bolstering near 4m attack stats is amazing, the effort to achieve that is not. You have the absolute highest chance to miss this units 18 ki attack on most every team(with the exception of SSJ3 category) which is not all bad to be fair. Defense 120% is great, very great to be honest. However when this units whole gimmick is virtually damage, and that damage only comes very unrealistic setup.. what’s the point? This unit IS in contention for the “worst.”
LR Beerus & Whis -
Leader skill - Super STR types ki +4 and 100% to all stats. Extreme STR ki +2 and 70%
Passive skill - ATK 80%, ATK & DEF +60% for 5 turns after receiving an attack.
Another one of those “divisive units.” Would many people argue that LR Beerus is bad? Maybe serval months ago. Now? Absolutely not. Not in any case where his best friend TEQ Beerus is around. I won’t waste time on this unit, I feel most have accepted this units true power and potency. An absurd attack stat, great defense, and a heal on his 18 ki. This unit is NOT in contention for the “worst.”
LR Cell and Cell Jrs. -
Leader skill - Extreme PHY ki +4 and 100% to all stats. Super PHY ki +2 and 70%.
Passive - ATK & DEF 90% at start of turn; Ki +1 and ATK 10% per existing enemy.
Well here’s an interesting one! I don’t feel LR Cell gets talked about very much, is that good or bad? I’d say he’s very middle of the road, nothing lacking while nothing is very incredible. I’d be hard pressed to find anyone who’d believe this unit is bad. What can truly be said for one of the least talked about LRs? This unit is not contention for the “worst.”
LR Bojack -
Leader skill - Extreme INT ki +4 and 100% to all stats. Super INT ki +2 and 70%.
Passive skill - ATK & DEF 80%; plus additional attack boost up to 70% (the more HP remaining the higher the boost) and defense boost up to 70% (the less HP remaining the higher the boost)
My man Bojack. In my opinion is the absolute most underrated unit in the LR discussion right next to LR Majin Vegeta. One of, if not the best defensive LRs in the game. Simple as that. His attack stat is no joke either, bolstering a complete 150% attack stat in itself is impressive.. not only that he raises all Extreme class allies attack by 40% for one turn on his 18 ki super. This unit is NOT in contention for the “worst.”
LR Goten and Trunks -
Leader skill - Super AGL types ki +4 and 100% to all stats. Extreme AGL ki +2 and 70%.
Passive skill - 3 to 9 ki randomly from start of turn; attack 120% when launching a super attack.
Well here’s a personal favorite of mine! This LR reaches very high attack stats, while being self sufficient in ki. The ki passive does help due to their lack of common links. You could argue their biggest issue is their RNG super attacks and yes, I’d agree. An inconsistent unit, while fun, can be a liability. The likelihood of missing this units 18 ki is LOW and their damage does make up for any shortcomings. This unit is barely not in contention for the “worst.”
LR Bardock -
Leader skill - Super PHY ki +4 and 100% to all stats. Extreme PHY ki +2 and 70%.
Passive skill - ATK & DEF 70%; plus an additional 30% attack when performing an ultra super attack. Ki +4 when facing only one enemy, DEF +60% when facing 2 or more enemies.
While this does pain me, Bardock is.. lackluster. Not bad, lackluster. First I’ll start by saying yes, he’s great ki wise and defensively and it’s great that he can seal. That’s.. about it.. sealing isn’t really applicable on almost every fight and how often do you truly NEED to seal? A great super battle road unit for certain.. however this unit comes up short. This unit is in contention for the “worst.”
LR Goku & Freeza -
Leader skill - Representatives of universe 7 category 177% to all stats. TEQ types ki +3 and 90% to all stats.
Passive skill - ATK & DEF 77% when performing a super attack; plus an additional 77% when forming an ultra super attack; plus an additional 77% when enemy is afflicted with “attack down” status.
I mean.. really? This unit is not in contention for the “worst.”
LR Trunks & Mai -
Leader skill - Time travelers category ki +4 and 130% to all stats. Super STR ki +4 and 100% to all stats.
Passive skill - ATK 70%; ATK & DEF 10%(up to 70%) per Time Traveler category ally. Ki +6 and high chance to dodge when facing an enemy of the future Saga category.
Ah shit, here we go again. LR Trunks and Mai, one of the most debated units for some time now. While their passive is impressive, it’s only impressive on one/two team(s). The amount of setup out-ways that of LR SSJ3 Goku by a mile and their damage is significantly lower. They are incredible on their own team, yes. On other teams? This unit is in contention for the “worst.”
LR SSJ4 Goku -
Leader skill - Goku’s Family category ki +3 and 170% to HP & ATK, DEF +130%. Super AGL types ki +3 and 120% to stats.
Passive skill - ATK +80% and DEF +20% at start of each turn (up to 80%); Ki +2 in addition per rainbow and agl Ki Sphere obtained; medium chance of evading enemy's Super Attack and countering with tremendous power.
Yeah. This unit is not in contention for the “worst.”
LR SSJ4 Vegeta -
Leader skill - Vegeta’s Family ki +3 and 170% to ATK & DEF, HP +130%. Super STR types ki +3 and 120% to stats.
Passive - DEF +80% and ATK +20% at start of each turn (up to 80%); Ki +2 in addition per str and rainbow Ki Sphere obtained; medium chance of evading enemy's Super Attack and countering with tremendous power
Nope. This unit is not in contention for the “worst.”
LR Super Baby 2 -
Leader skill - Artificial lifeforms category ki +4 and 130% to all stats. Extreme AGL ki +4 and 100% to all stats.
Passive skill - Ki +3 and ATK & DEF +100%; plus an additional Ki +3 and ATK +50% when there is a pure saiyan Category enemy; plus an additional Ki +3 and ATK +50% when there is a hybrid saiyan Category enemy; high chance to turn into Giant Ape when HP is 40% or below (once only)
Without even going over his transformed state, let me ask this, how many fights can you think of right this second that consist of both hybrid and pure saiyan enemies? At the same time too? Good luck. This unit is in contention for the “worst.”
LR Goku, Pan, and Trunks -
Leader skill - Dragon Ball Seekers category ki +4 and 170% to all stats. Super INT types ki +4 and 100% to all stats.
Passive skill - ATK & DEF +77% when performing a Super Attack; Ki +1 per Dragon Ball Seeker Category ally on the team; Plus an additional 77% ATK when performing an ultra super attack.
This unit is great, simple as that. They bolster one of the friendliest free to play categories, have massive attack stats and even raise their defense by 33% on SA for 3 turns. This is a unit with very little weakness or flaw. This unit is not in contention for the “worst.”
LR SSJ2 Kale and Caulifla -
Leader skill - Joined forces category ki +4 and 130% to all stats. AGL Type Ki +4 and 100% to all stats.
Passive skill - god help me.
ATK & DEF +66% and launch an additional attack; Ki +1 (up to 6) and chance to evade enemy's attack (including Super Attack) +6% (up to 66%) with each attack performed; ATK +10% per universe 6, joined forces and pure saiyans Category ally on the team; launch an additional Super Attack when there is a universal survival saga or pure saiyans Category enemy
Let’s start with this, if LR Kale and Caulifla and were another LR Goku and Vegeta then nobody would rethink them as the best unit. They are amazing, they are arguably the singular best unit in the entire game and people won’t accept that due to who the characters are. Guaranteed attacks, high dodge chance, easy links, Wild attack stats. This unit has everything. This unit is not in contention for the “worst.”
Well! That’s it! I’ve boiled it down to FIVE. LR Broly, LR SSJ3 Goku, LR Trunks and Mai, LR Bardock, and LR Baby. Let’s start by saying none of these units are bad, they are simply in my opinion the worst of the best units in the game. Let’s immediately say that LR SSJ3 Goku outshines all these units in most every regard. He does require ludacris setup but it’s time we say “move bitch, get out the way.” LR Goku is out. LR Bardock is next, while yes, he’s not impressive.. rather bland to be fair. He’s still great defensively, offensively, and he sustains himself. While there are many, many better options it is hard to ignore this units sheer well-rounded viability. LR Trunks and Mai are up now and you know what? I think the new Golden Week Trunks has really brought them to shine as of late. While they do require massive setup, the setup is built in as is. You’re only using these two on categories which bolster the units in their passive so it’s not as strenuous as it may seem. It’s down to LR Broly and LR Baby.. for my money.. LR Broly is the worst singular LR in the game. His defense is a liability, his attack stats aren’t that massively impressive and his passive only deteriorates over time. While Baby is not wildly impressive I do feel that he’s leagues ahead of Broly. How often do you truly use Broly outside of world tournament? I rarely do, but maybe that’s me.

2019.04.28 04:54 d8uv Ultimate Song Tournament 1992-2007, or why “Under the Bridge” is the best song of the 90s and 00s.

I was curious as to what the best song of the 90s and 00s would be. To figure this out, I created a massive 256-song tournament, and ran through it with my partner antarris

Our Filled Bracket

http://www.d8uv.org/misc/song-tournament-1992-2007-filled-out.png

What the hell is that thing up there

For each year in our tournament, I took the top 16 songs from Billboard’s Year-End Hot 100 chart (which measures a song’s overall popularity over the course of the year), and seeded them appropriately (so that the more popular songs have a slight advantage). Then, I took the output of the 16 years, and ran a tournament to find the best song of the 90s, the best song of the 00s, then pitted those two winners in the grand final.
Note: In the filled-out bracket, we were mostly in agreement. When we absolutely couldn’t agree, we had to split. Splits are denoted by slashes; the song on top is d8uv’s choice, and the song on bottom is antarris’s choice.

Notes from the tournament

1992—Winner: “Under The Bridge”

d8uv: Note: “Smells Like Teen Spirit”–you know, the song that changed the entire rock genre—only got up to 32. And yet, “Just Another Day”, a song that you have never heard of, was the 10th most popular song. What the hell was wrong with the people of 1992? antarris: Not everyone was an angsty white suburban teenager, you know.

1993—Winner: “Nuthin’ But A ‘G’ Thang”

antarris: I don’t even know who like a third of these people even are. “I Will Always Love You” nearly won my bracket.

1994—Winner: d8uv: “Whatta Man”, antarris: “Don’t Turn Around”

antarris: The Sign was the first album I ever owned. I sang “Don’t Turn Around” in the shower through my mid-twenties. Sorry-not-sorry. d8uv: This was the year of Ace of Base, and as much as I love my trashy eurodance, the sound hasn’t aged particularly well. antarris: I live for my trashy eurodance. Fight me.

1995—Winner: d8uv: “Waterfalls”, antarris: “Gangsta’s Paradise”

antarris: “Waterfalls” is just a touch behind for me, probably because my little sister played it incessantly. She was seven. d8uv: Antarris called “Gangsta’s Paradise” out as “the only rap song every white person knows”. This was meant as a compliment, but I know better.

1996—Winner: d8uv: “Tha Crossroads”, antarris: “C’mon N’ Ride It (The Train)”

d8uv: When pressed for comment, all antarris said was “... it’s a choo-choo train.” antarris: Pure fucking lyrical genius. “Tha Crossroads” is my second favorite, though. d8uv: Still, I found myself honestly surprised at how much I liked “Tha Crossroads”.

1997—Winner: “Wannabe”

d8uv: This—like 1994—was a surprisingly weak year. Every matchup other than the final was super easy, and even the final wasn’t that hard. antarris: “Semi-Charmed Life” was #17. It would have won my bracket. I probably should’ve bought it instead of recording the video off MTV.

1998—Winner: “How’s It Going To Be”

antarris: This year was also surprisingly weak. Lots of “this is my third favorite song from this artist.” d8uv: Elton John cheated with a mediocre song that made into two years of this tournament.

1999—Winner: “Livin’ la Vida Loca”

d8uv: This had the hardest matchup in the entire tournament. The seeding was unkind, and forced two songs that would have won the year if they didn’t have to clash. “No Scrubs” vs. “Livin’ la Vida Loca”. But, in the end, Ricky Martin just barely beat TLC. I’m still not sure if this was the right choice. antarris: If “No Scrubs” had won, it would have made it just as far as “Livin’ La Vida Loca” did. It’s that good. My mom thinks we made the wrong choice, though.

2000—Winner: “Smooth”

antarris: I honestly thought d8uv would fight me on this one. I remembered him saying he absolutely hated “Smooth”. d8uv: My dad only listens to Classic Rock. So, when Santana came out with new music, of course he had to Limewire it, and he loved those singles. I heard “Smooth” so many times my teeth fell right out of my head. Turns out, it’s actually a great song. Who knew?

2001—Winner: “Fallin’”

antarris: A garbage-ass year. I’m pretty sure I rounded third base listening to that Staind song, though. d8uv: I thought Dido would win, since I love that song and still play it. antarris: I think you mean “Stan”.

2002—Winner: “In The End”

d8uv: Hybrid Theory is the rare album that became better over time. antarris: Seriously. I hated this in 2002. Love it now.

2003—Winner: “Crazy in Love”

antarris: I had somehow never even heard “Crazy in Love” before. Wow. d8uv: This did not win because it was novel. Lord knows, these pop charts are filled with random songs that we’ve forgotten. Almost every single one was forgotten for a reason. antarris: To be fair, I think 2001 made me give up on pop music for like a decade.

2004—Winner: “Hey Ya!”

d8uv: Outkast was as popular as they deserve, for once. antarris: I was promised Enya. I got baby Adam Levine instead. What the actual fuck.

2005—Winner: “Gold Digger”

antarris: That’s not even the best song named “Shake It Off.” d8uv: Kanye can be very VERY good when he tries.

2006—Winner: “Crazy”

antarris: “Crazy” vs. “Ridin’” was hard for me. I’m still not sure if I made the right call. d8uv: Are you sure you weren’t thinking of the Weird Al version? antarris: Yes. Fuck off.

2007—Winner: “Umbrella”

d8uv: Here it is, the weakest year of the tournament. There’s like one, maybe two good songs in this list.

90s Grand Tournament—Winner: “Under The Bridge”

d8uv: This was harder than the individual years, because we love every single one of these songs. “Under The Bridge” vs. “Nuthin’ but A ‘G’ Thang” was particularly brutal for me. antarris: We started listening to high-quality versions of the songs here instead of just streaming YouTube. Coolio going over Ace of Base in my bracket surprised me.

00s Grand Tournament—Winner: “In The End”

antarris: “Umbrella” over “Crazy” and “Gold Digger”? Really? It’s like I don’t even know you! d8uv: Should I pack up and leave? Maybe head to the train station? antarris: I picked the song about choo-choo tr--oh, I see what you did there. Not cool. d8uv: This song was always great, it just took a few years for people to forget the stank of nu-metal.

The Grand Final—Winner: “Under The Bridge”

d8uv: They tried so hard, and got so far. But, in the end, it didn’t even matter. antarris: Afterwards, I looked up some of the history on “Under the Bridge”, and this makes sense. A funk-rock band wrote a song based on a poem and had it produced by Rick Rubin. It’s like catnip to both of us for completely different reasons. d8uv: The thing that clinched it for me was the realization that this song builds so beautifully. It’s dynamic in a way most pop songs are, but maintains being interesting even during the subdued opening. antarris: Yeah, I used an orgasm metaphor when I advocated for it. d8uv: Most of the songs on this list were pop songs that became art. This song felt like art that became a pop song. That’s pretentious to say, so just remember—I almost went with “Umbrella”.

Caveats

I chose these years because I needed to cut 4 years to get 20 years down to 16. Because of this, I excluded the two lowest-revenue (according to the RIAA, adj. for inflation) years from the 90s (1990 and 1991), and the two lowest-revenue years for the 00s (2008 and 2009). It might have been better to include them, but I didn’t want to.
Because the Billboard year ends in November, if a song is released during the winter, it’s likely that it won’t show up as a smash hit for one year; instead, it will show up as a mediocre hit across two years. Some songs can pull off charting highly in consecutive years, but that’s really rare.
It’s important to remember the wise words of Binary Star: Everything that glitters ain’t gold, and every gold record don’t glitter—that’s for damn sure. The Hot 100 measures popularity, not cultural relevance or quality. A lot of very good, very important songs didn’t make the cut for this tournament, while a lot of long-forgotten dross did. Ultimately, I’m fine with this. Most of the fun of filling out the bracket was running into songs I don’t remember and going “What the fuck are YOU, song?”
For singles with an A-side and a B-Side (ex: “Follow You Down / Til I Hear It from You - Gin Blossoms”) I chose the first song. This is a little arbitrary, but a line has to be drawn somewhere.
Some additional caveats (because antarris is an academic pedant): this obviously has too small and homogenous a viewing audience to be objective truth. While both of us have pretty broad taste in music, there are some genres—mainstream country and slow R&B in particular—that neither of us is super into. This probably skews our results significantly, especially in the 90s bracket.
Also, a better way to determine our sample of songs would be to take a page from Good Mythical Morning’s cereal tournament and set up a poll for each year. However, getting a survey sample that’s representative of the population at large would be extremely challenging with an internet poll and, let’s face it, we’re not getting grant money for this shit.

If you disagree, you should fill out your own bracket:

2018.11.30 14:23 kwriley87 Customer Price Shopping Incident -- How would you handle it?

Good morning MSPWorld!

I am a smaller IT MSP / Hosted PBX provider and am finding myself running into an issue over and over again, and I haven't quite figured out how to address it... Customer's that price shop equipment.

I've dealt with this for quite some time now, and I imagine that most MSP's deal with this too, so I'd like to figure out a concrete way to handle this situation that keeps the peace between you and the customer. It doesn't happen with all of my customers, or even alot for that matter, but there are a select few... one of them including my biggest client.

When I send out estimates/quote for equipment, I have stopped putting in exact model numbers and specs to avoid this. So if I were to quote out a new Dell PowerEdge T330 server with a Xeon, 16GB RAM, 1TB HDD, Win2k16, etc.. I would just label it as a line item on the estimate as a Dell PowerEdge server. This has somewhat stopped people from simply copying and pasting my estimates into Google and coming back to tell me they found better pricing on another website and question why there is a mark up. But there are times when a customer will call me and straight out ask me for the exact model number of the device or equipment quoted.. and they proceed to go shop it on Amazon.

But I had a different situation happen yesterday with a smaller customer that has me on the fence of how to handle it..

Customer has a 6 year old desktop computer, complains about performance on a regular basis, knows he needs a new one but doesn't want to spend the money. Okay, fine... I understand. Over time I've told this customer essentially that hey, I know your computer is slow and it's no fun to work on but there really isn't much I can do to make your 3rd generation i3, 4GB of RAM, 500GB non SSD hard drive outdated PC blaze along... You need a new computer.

Well, finally he gives in. I send him option A and option B over in a quote, with Option A being an "acceptable" Inspiron tower with an i5, 8GB RAM, 1TB HDD, Windows 10 Pro, standard warranty, etc. simply because I know he is very, well... frugal. Option B being a Dell Optiplex workstation with an i5, 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD, Win 10 Pro, 3 year ProSupport, etc. He decides on option B. Great. I have it ordered, shipped, and it arrives at our offices. I deliver it to his office, set it up, join the domain, migrate his data from his old PC to his new one, install programs, configure Outlook, etc. to get him up and running.

Yesterday, out of the blue, I receive a text message: "Hey...I just Googled the computer you brought me. How much are you upcharging me in it?". I'm on a conference call during this, so I just shake my head and tell myself I'll deal with him when I'm done.

5 minutes later, another text: "I'm not happy about this. I'm looking online and you up charged me 25% to order a computer. What was your cost on the computer you sold me? At Staples this computer is $580".

So once I have the time, I send him a long drawn out reply, that in hindsight, I probably shouldn't have as my emotions were involved because this happens more often than I like to admit. I essentially told him that I looked the computer up at Staples he was referencing.. it was his computer model with an i3, 500GB non SSD drive, and no 3 year warranty... while that may be the same model, it's not the same computer. So I let him know that HIS computer has an i5, 256GB SSD and a 3 year warranty. Then I went on to explain that we are a Dell partner and buy from them directly and include a 3 year warranty on workstations we sell which does up the price on PC's a bit and there is a markup included for a number of reasons.. one being that we are a business and that every business in this world marks up their products. If businesses sold their products at cost, they wouldn't thrive, we took time on our end to research a solution for him to meet his performance & job function requirements, and we also hand delivered it to his office, migrated his data, installed programs, etc.. and invited him to give Geek Squad a call and ask what they would charge him for those services.

I probably should have left that last sentence out..

Anyway.. 10 minutes later, he sends me a link to another website that has his computer model with his specs, minus the 3 year warranty for $740. There is an option to add that 3 year warranty to the computer on this website for $70 and once that's added, the total is $810... a mere $100 cheaper than what he was invoiced.

I didn't respond to his attacking text message as arguing with a customer via text message isn't something I have the desire to do. He said he was going to call us tomorrow (today) to discuss.. so I figured I'd save the above point for that conversation, if he actually does call us.

So at this point, we're about to have an confrontation and possibly lose a customer that pays us about $700 a month for IT & hosted PBX services over a $100 markup on a computer and have to try and justify why that is the case.. which is crazy to me..

Do your customers REALLY expect you to sell them equipment at cost?.. After you take time out of your day to research and find them a solution to fit their needs, pre-purchase it, personally deliver it to their office, set it up for them, migrate their data, install programs, add printers, etc. and NOT make any margin on it? This assumption to me is ludacris. You don't go walk into Walmart and tell them to sell you that gallon of milk at their cost because you do business with them on a regular basis do you?

I don't know about you, but when a person doesn't value my time, I find that to be insulting.

If I lay this point out to him, I already know the reply I am going to get:
"Then what do we pay you for every month?"

Well, you pay us to monitor and maintain your computer network, perform routine backups of your workstation and server data, antivirus software to protect workstations, monitoring of all of your IT equipment 24 hours a day and take proactive measures to prevent downtime or data loss, have the resources and be able to formulate and execute a plan for a quick recovery of your data in the event of a disaster, provide on demand technical support your computer problems in the office, have the peace of mind that we will dispatch to your office in a heartbeat in the event of a critical IT related issue or outage to ensure you are up and running with as little downtime as possible... oh, and you also pay us for your business phone system service.

I am just really not sure what to do here because essentially what's happening here is this customer is devaluing our services. If you are going to shop around every single purchase and get bent out of shape for the fact that your IT consultant is making a margin on equipment they sell you.. well, then why don't you fire your IT consultant and go buy and manage your own equipment? You clearly don't need us.

How would YOU handle this situation? How do you as an MSP deal with customers like this?

The answers I typically see around here are "Fire them, you don't need them and they are going to hinder your business". Well that sounds great and all if you are an established medium sized MSP where it's easy to replace the income... but when you're a smaller shop, you really don't want to just throw $700 a month away over a $100 markup of a computer.

I also see responses here along the lines of "Do the legwork for him find him what he needs and send him a link to purchase it himself and then bill him for the consulting hours you took to do so." Again, sounds great and all, but that will be also be met with a "What do we pay you for every month?" question.

Is there any way to avoid situations like this? Do we need to fine tune our Managed IT Services agreement to include examples of in scope and out of scope work? Do we need to actually say that we mark equipment up in our agreement and justify the reason why? This way when a situation like this happens, we can just refer them back to their agreement and end the conversation there?

How do you handle this?

2018.10.09 04:50 qwertycoder Revisiting the more curious synchronicity and aspects of the Harvest 91 festival, 1 year later.

Hello world, I want to bring up The Mandalay bay Sync sequence that has gotten a bit more interesting since our last discussion. It appears that a lot of people have moved on from this event either coming down on the side of Conspiracy or the side of “ The mainstream story” I want to share the Plethora of Coincidences that when looked at holistically paint a picture quite a bit deeper than a “Conspiracy of Men”

https://www.reddit.com/conspiracy/comments/75ubvc/what_is_with_all_those_numbers_a_theory_to_the/

https://www.reddit.com/conspiracy/comments/78rzsz/hurricane_wienstien_the_mandalay_effect_and_the/

Here is a list of the facts that shine a synchromystic light on the event and specifically the word Mandalay.

  1. Boris Johnson was Reported to have recited the poem Road to Mandalay within the temple and that it was in poor taste due too the author of the poem. Here is the kicker and the most peculiar part. The event of going to Myanmar was JAN-21-2017. The actual news reporting this reference of Mandalay was not until SEPT-30-2017 the day before the “Mandalay bay Event.”

http://www.foxnews.com/world/2017/01/21/british-foreign-secretary-positive-and-optimistic-on-trump.html

https://www.theguardian.com/politics/video/2017/sep/30/boris-johnson-caught-on-camera-reciting-kipling-poem-in-burmese-temple-video

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dXtYLmoG9Ek

Why is this the case? Why did an event which happened simultaneous to trumps Inauguration Ball not include the words Mandalay until over 15 publications announced the Gaffe of Mandalay the day before the “Mandalay bay Massacre”. Some will imply that they KNEW that Mandalay was going to be a “Keyword” . But what if it is bigger that that... what if the universe has highlighted this word?

2.The geometric coincidence of alignments..

Now here is what I found the DAY after the event.

https://imgur.com/xUw8WA4This is the Equilateral triangle formed from the Mandalay Bay Hotel, Luxor Pyramid and the Harvest 91 stage.

https://imgur.com/rEstE0m

These three images show the distances between 444.44 yards each lineWhat is even stranger is that from the 32nd window of the Mandalay bay hotel to the front door of the Las Vegas Masonic temple.7,777.77 metersA very precise alignment that is made more peculiar.https://imgur.com/W3jju9uThe yellow line is from the window to the front door of the Las vegas Masonic temple. The blue line is the same point but pointing at the center of the Mandalay bay hotel.

https://imgur.com/Ojq37Zb

I saw the arch of the Mandalay bay and the obelisk and how they were in a line. So I measured and this on is damn near to the pixel accurate from the far corner of the obelisk and the arch. Again 444.44 yards.......

So visually you have a perfect Repeating digit Equilateral triangle showcasing the Pyramid the Stage and the Hotel. All of which are owned by the same company

  1. The Company that owns it all......MGM Metro Goldwyn Mayer.https://www.trademarkia.com/enlightened-society-for-global-transformation-74349850.html

Oh that's right it is the Trademarked logo for the Mandalay group owned by MGM studios.
“The Enlightened society for global transformation”

This is on the Floor of the Luxor hotel/ Black Pyramid

But here is some more nuggets of synchromystic treasure from the research.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Road_to_Mandalay_(1926_film)

This movie was released in theaters on 6-28-1926


https://www.timeanddate.com/date/durationresult.html?m1=6&d1=28&y1=1926&m2=10&d2=1&y2=2017

33,333 days before the event at Mandalay bay. Which is also 91 y 3m 3d . Remember that it was called the Route 91 “HARVEST” festival and we have the 33 once again reiterated.

The 33 reiterated in the Wikipedia page for the movie

The Road to Mandalay is a 1926 American silent drama film directed by Tod Browning and starring Lon Chaney. Originally a 7 reel feature, the film was considered lost until an abridged version, of about 33 minutes, with French intertitles surfaced in Paris. This poor quality French abridgment is all that survives of The Road to Mandalay “ Also 70 min and 7 reels echoing the 777 theme that Vegas persists.

The kicker here is seeing that MGM built the Mandalay bay and also made this movie with the same name.

  1. Charles Dance's reading of The road to Mandalay 777 days before the “Mandalay Bay Massacre”

https://www.timeanddate.com/date/durationresult.html?m1=8&d1=16&y1=2015&m2=10&d2=1&y2=2017

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6mRt50wyaLg

Charles Dance played Tywin Lannister In the Game of thrones as “King of the Seven Kingdoms”Reciting “Mandalay” by Rudyard Kipling notable Freemason 777 days before the event in Mandalay bay Vegas......

  1. Jason aldeans Tattoo......https://www.reddit.com/conspiracy/comments/74jys8/why_does_jason_aldean_have_the_illuminati_card/I
made this post 11 months ago. The levels of synchronicity on this point alone is mind boggling.
From the top lets take a look at the tattoohttps://www.reddit.com/conspiracy/comments/75tgag/jason_aldean_tattoo_numerology_and_symbolism/

Alot of people will mention that “JA is his initials and he just likes poker and that's why he got the tattoo.)

In the places ive seen this fact brought up people will simply write it off as a guy getting a tattoo of his initials.WRONG: His name is JASON ALDINE WILLIAMS“Aldean changed his name on the suggestion of Monte C. Willis, a music consultant hired by Barry Williams (now partners in managing Curb Recording artist Rachel Holder).[citation needed] "There was an artist named Jason D. Williams performing all over Nashville at the time and I felt like there would be a lot of confusion, so I called Barry and suggested the name change. Really, not an easy thing to suggest to a father, but ultimately it worked out well". Monte Willis: "In order to stand out, he changed the spelling of his middle name, Aldine, to come up with the name Aldean.” https://twitter.com/MUSICARCHITECTS

This is the gent who made Jasons new name for him. His initials would have been JW or JAW had Monte not been there to Craft his new name.

So the JA persona was Crafted by a dude called “MUSICARCHITECTS” on twitter.

The next crafted part of his persona is BLACKJACK RIDGE.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9zXps-Wv2UE

This is the video that puts his house on the market. Published 2-11-16

http://www.nashcountrydaily.com/2017/02/22/jason-aldeans-black-jack-ridge-farm-in-tennessee-is-on-the-market-for-4-5-million-photo-gallery/

This was the article I found first announcing it for sale. Published 2-22-17

2-22-2018 is exactly 222 days before 10-1-2018 (2+0+1+8=11) 10-1

  1. The Marilyn Manson connection.
https://www.reddit.com/Retconned/comments/744vxd/the_mandalay_effect_synchronicity_binding_the/

Where does Marilyn Manson come in? Well I hadn't seen him in the news in Ages and I see a couple interviews of him talking about
columbine, which came out on 9-23-17. Now He has a new album called heaven upside down. The first track on this album is “Revelation 12” which is the day of the Rev 12 sign.
So the day before The shooting Mr Manson was crushed under a giant GUN prop on stage.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BzVCaxdb6vo

So he comes out talking about Columbine The first big noted mass shooting in recent times. Then a couple days later is injured by a giant gun. The day after that we experience the biggest shooting in history.

So lets look at the songs he just released before the shooting.

Released Sept 11th..... hmmm

https://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/marilynmanson/weknowwhereyoufuckinglive.html

Let's make something clear We're all recording this as it happens Those diamond-bullet storefront-blood-bank Splinters and stained glass

The world was stripped of its superficial surfaces We don't intend to just eat the street The asphalt is the good meat And we will sleep on the skin of its nightmares We will sleep on the skin of its nightmares "It's time to just kill this crowd And scream as fucking loud..."

We dont intend to eat the street. Its time to just kill this crowd and scream just as loud.

Fire fire fire fire fire away Fire fire fire fire fire away Fire fire fire fire fire away Fire fire fire fire fire fire fire away (22 fires)

I love the sound of shells hitting the ground, man I love the sound of shells hitting the ground I love it

I really dont have to emphasize or doing any reaching here. This is pretty odd.

The next song off his album released 11 days before 10-01-2017 which is a 111 day. Kill4ME

https://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/marilynmanson/kill4me.html

From the getgo the title is apt.
Your hotel hall won't be so vacant And I can tell that you ain't faking Because I take death threats Like the best of them
Would you kill, kill, kill for me? I love you enough to ask you again Would you kill, kill, kill for me? You won't be kissing me unless you kill for me Kill, kill, kill for me
Hotel hall......

“This is a sacrifice.” Self explanatory.

The North American leg of the Heaven Upside Down Tour will begin on September 29, and will incorporate dates at several music festivals, So the tour began and the gun fell upside down injuring him at the start of his tour.

So on further research This album was supposed to release on Valentines day.2-14-17.... Wait a tic. We just saw this date. 6M 6W 6D before 10-01-17 was this day the same day they evacuated oroville.

Robbie williams connectionRobbie Williams has a song called “The road to Mandalay” The same title of the poem written by the Freemason Rudyard Kipling which was recited by Boris Johnson 1 day before 33,333 days after the release of the movie “The road to Mandalay” of which was made by MGM studios.(and is also recited by Charles Dance 777 days before on the 70th anniversary of VJ day).... who owns the Mandalay bay/Luxor pyramid/ and the concert grounds that form a perfectly equilateral triangle of 444.44 yards between each of the 3 points.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eternity/The_Road_to_Mandalay

Just the name of the song doesnt do much but as you know there is more.https://www.lyricsfreak.com/robbie+williams/me+my+monkey_20116746.html

“We made tracks to The Mandalay Bay Hotel “

“Me and my monkey With a dream and a gun I'm hoping my monkey don't point that gun at anyone Me and my monkey Like Butch and the Sun dance Kid Trying to understand why he did what he did Why he did what he did”

“We got the elevator, I hit the 33rd floor We had a room up top with the panoramic views like nothing you'd ever seen before “

The name of the Hotel, The floor of the shooting … and the reference of the gun, and trying to understand why he did what he did.

http://steveyb.co.uk/wp-content/gallery/Robbie-Williams/RobbieWilliams-Sing16Eternity.jpg

Album cover for the road to mandalay album. Note the tattoo on the bicep. It is a lion. Very similar too the MGM logo.....Also remember Jason Aldeans tattoo! Its the opposite arm same spot as the eclipse

6Y 6M 6D from 10-01-17 Is the next total USA eclipse similar to the last one.

6Y 6M 6W 6D before 10-1-17 was feb-14-11 The Day of Rage and the beginning of Arab spring.

  1. Dr phil connection.The Next strange attractor involved in this tapestry of people, places, and dates is Corrine Lomas

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XgsxUleg16Q

One of the first interviewees of CNN for a boots on the ground Perspective of what happened.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dBufBWjcZt4

https://www.drphil.com/shows/1907/

It turns out she was on Dr phils show on 3-20-2013, She was on the show for being a Narcissist..... Now I dont know about you but I dont know if the people that go on Jerry springer, oprah, dr phil or any of these types of shows are completely genuine.
I cant find a full clip but this is just weirder and weirder

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aKRgcS9vc4Q
Now I was surprised to find that her twitter is Public. And what I found is pretty dang odd.

1st thing I noticed was the absolute overwhelming amount of rap music. And not 1 country song. And looking at this event It is really only country music stars. Again this by itself is nothing, just another clue.

https://twitter.com/corinnelomas?lang=en
Now looking before the shooting.

The VERY last post before the shooting was “The presidents face” by JACKA (this is important.)
https://genius.com/The-jacka-the-presidents-face-lyrics Note the word illuminate.
The First post AFTER the shooting was a retweet of 6lack. Stressed about things I shouldn't even be stressing about.
I see BLACKJACK coded in this Jacka or Jack Ace A perfect hand in blackjack.
This is her first post since the shooting. Not something hey guys Im ok, or anything like that.
Then another quote from 6lack (common occurrence here along with Jacka)
“u gotta love them innocent looking girls that are actually bad” This is the next morning after the shooting.
Continuing through her feed you will see her pushing the multiple shoote shooters on the ground/ military experience/ and antigun control bend.

Ok so enough about her. Ill let use your own discernment to decide what you think im just sharing the data and syncs as they came too me.

SO what about BLACKJACK or 6lackjacka, in reference to The twitter feed.

  1. Ludacris Vices connection.


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YvcsyiwxU4E

Video begins at 10PM same as shooting.

Same wing of hotel. Showing the concert grounds as well as the Luxor Pyramid. Unknow if the same floor. Filmed before shooting 1 month prior, released 4 days after. Very last frame of video alights Ludacris Bighead with the black pyramids capstone.

ISIS ISIS ISIS is repeated throughout. Because who the F says ICES

  1. Tom petty connection.

Tom petty dies the day after the shooting. His last performance being at the Luxor Pyramid.

was startled to read the Tom Petty had a heart attack shortly after the Vegas shooting. The media then went back and forth saying he wasn't dead and then he was again. Tom petty was one of the founders of tom petty and the Heartbreakers, and he died of a broken heart.

He was 66Y 11M 11Days old on the day of his death and the Vegas attacks. This converts to 66y 345 days 34566.
So how does that connect back to Vegas because a linear connection isn't as solid as a fractal or spiral.
http://lasvegas.eventful.com/events/tom-petty-/[email protected]

This shows that Tom Pettys last performance in Vegas Was at the LUXOR hotel On his 66th birthday Almost a year from the Harvest that would take place on 10-01-17.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HDky7zFS_ms

To tie this connection up nicely we have ALDEAN singing PETTY's song......

  1. That days Chabad bible verse......

And you also have this preacher dude Standing in front of the concert doing his spiel. We've seen this many times before so its not shocking, but its just an additional piece.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AhbhQnzmIQo

So the daily bible verse from Chabad.org is very applicable.
Chapter 60-65 of Psalms. Psalms is a book of verses written to music. So we have the musical connection.
Chapter 64 smacked me right in the face. Hard, jeez.

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Psalm+64&version=NIV

"Hear my voice, O God, as I recount [my woes]; preserve my life from the terror of the enemy.
Shelter me from the schemes of the wicked, from the conspiracy of evildoers,
who have sharpened their tongue like the sword, aimed their arrow-a bitter word-
to shoot at the innocent from hidden places; suddenly they shoot at him, they are not afraid.
They encourage themselves in an evil thing, they speak of laying traps; they say: "Who will see them?”
"Terror of the enemy" "Shelter me for the schemes of the wicked and the conspiracy of evildoers."
"To shoot at the innocent from hidden places." Really...Really shooting is in the bible?
"They sought pretexts; [and when] they completed a diligent search, each man [kept the plot] inside, deep in the heart."
This is another phrase dripping with meaning for me. "Sought pretexts" Looking for answers, but the answers are in our hearts.
"But God will shoot them with his arrows; they will suddenly be struck down.
He will turn their own tongues against them and bring them to ruin; all who see them will shake their heads in scorn.
All people will fear; they will proclaim the works of God and ponder what he has done."
"All people will fear and proclaim the works of god and ponder what he has done."
People are afraid and wondering WTF is going on.
I take in all news and data points whenever I look into things, A holistic approach is required and nothing can be cast aside as not applicable.

TLDR: The Route 91 Harvest festival was one of the most synchnronisitcally connect events I have even see since 9-11. As for the HOW, WHY,WHO I don't know. All I am presenting here are the peculiar temporal anomaly contained within.

The Mandalay bay hotel was named after the poem “The road to Mandalay” written by notable Freemason Rudyard Kipling. The hotel is owned by the same company that produced the film “The road to Mandalay” which was released in theaters 33,333 days before the Harvest 91 event.

The day before the event, British Secretary of state was reported to be reciting the poem “The road to Mandalay” in the exact temple where Rudyard Kipling was inspired to write it. What peculiar here is that the recitation was filmed in june but didnt appear in the news until Sept-30, the day before the event that would happen at the hotel named after the temple the poem was recited in.

777 days before of the 70th anniversary of VJ day the former king of the 7 kingdoms Charles Dance/Tywin Lannister Reads the Road to Mandalay in front of thousands and is broadcasted live to millions of people.

The day before Marilyn Manson is crushed under a gun stage prop during a concert while singing “Sweet Dreams” 7770 days after the initial release of the MM cover.. This connection becomes more curious with the content of his Kill4me and “we know where you fucking live”

Robbie Williams released an album with the same name of the poem we are finding so prevalent here . He also made a song called “Me and my monkey” In this song Going to the Mandalay bay hotel getting on the elevator and hitting the 33rd floor along with bringing a gun up and have a wide vista, perfect view. A fellow redditor pointed out this oddity

http://www.mansonwiki.com/wiki/My_Monkey My monkey was a song Written and performed by Charles Manson. And then reperformed by Marilyn Manson later on. The lyrics repeating some stunning lines.

I am a mechanical boyIt's an illusionPostulated, mocked upThrough confusionConfusion, it's an illusionUtter confusionLive on in your illusion

https://genius.com/Charles-manson-mechanical-man-lyrics

Robbie williams has a tatoo of the roaring lion opposite of where Jason Aldean Williams has his Black hole sun/ Blackjack tattoo. The tattoo image of Blackjack signifies the date as well as references a Illuminati card.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steve_Jackson_Games,_Inc._v._United_States_Secret_Service

The company which made this has been involved with some peculiar things as well.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I dont really think this is a Conspiracy in the sense that every element was forethought and prepared just so that these alignments would take place.... I think it has something more to do with the universe trying to wake people up to the dream this reality is.

My wife was waking me up earlier than Id like to be woken the other day and a distinct metaphor came to the front of my mind. I DO NOT LIKE TO BE WOKEN UP........ Id rather be dreaming or getting just one more dream in before having to slog thru the reality that persists.

This “Seems” like a dream..... Like the elements and factors in reality are speaking to each individual person in their own ways. The universe “Seeing” itself through the consciousness it produces. The same way a dream can be interpreted to suss out messages from the subconscious we can Analyze our own day to day reality in comparison with the whole to suss out a message from the Superconcious.

Well that's all I have on this topic. Im sure there are about 100 things I missed but please feel free to add the various curiosities surrounding this event and I will take note and delve deeper. Stay aware my friends.

2018.10.09 04:05 qwertycoder Revisiting the oddities and synchronicities regarding the Harvest 91 event.

Hello world, I want to bring up The Mandalay bay Sync sequence that has gotten a bit more interesting since our last discussion. It appears that a lot of people have moved on from this event either coming down on the side of Conspiracy or the side of “ The mainstream story” I want to share the Plethora of Coincidences that when looked at holistically paint a picture quite a bit deeper than a “Conspiracy of Men”

https://www.reddit.com/conspiracy/comments/75ubvc/what_is_with_all_those_numbers_a_theory_to_the/

https://www.reddit.com/conspiracy/comments/78rzsz/hurricane_wienstien_the_mandalay_effect_and_the/

Here is a list of the facts that shine a synchromystic light on the event and specifically the word Mandalay.

  1. Boris Johnson was Reported to have recited the poem Road to Mandalay within the temple and that it was in poor taste due too the author of the poem. Here is the kicker and the most peculiar part. The event of going to Myanmar was JAN-21-2017. The actual news reporting this reference of Mandalay was not until SEPT-30-2017 the day before the “Mandalay bay Event.”

Why is this the case? Why did an event which happened simultaneous to trumps Inauguration Ball not include the words Mandalay until over 15 publications announced the Gaffe of Mandalay the day before the “Mandalay bay Massacre”. Some will imply that they KNEW that Mandalay was going to be a “Keyword” . But what if it is bigger that that... what if the universe has highlighted this word?

2.The geometric coincidence of alignments..

Now here is what I found the DAY after the event.

https://www.timeanddate.com/date/durationresult.html?m1=6&d1=28&y1=1926&m2=10&d2=1&y2=2017

33,333 days before the event at Mandalay bay. Which is also 91 y 3m 3d . Remember that it was called the Route 91 “HARVEST” festival and we have the 33 once again reiterated.

The 33 reiterated in the Wikipedia page for the movie

The Road to Mandalay is a 1926 American silent drama film directed by Tod Browning and starring Lon Chaney. Originally a 7 reel feature, the film was considered lost until an abridged version, of about 33 minutes, with French intertitles surfaced in Paris. This poor quality French abridgment is all that survives of The Road to Mandalay “ Also 70 min and 7 reels echoing the 777 theme that Vegas persists.

The kicker here is seeing that MGM built the Mandalay bay and also made this movie with the same name.

  1. Charles Dance's reading of The road to Mandalay 777 days before the “Mandalay Bay Massacre”

  1. Jason aldeans Tattoo......https://www.reddit.com/conspiracy/comments/74jys8/why_does_jason_aldean_have_the_illuminati_card/I
made this post 11 months ago. The levels of synchronicity on this point alone is mind boggling.
From the top lets take a look at the tattoohttps://www.reddit.com/conspiracy/comments/75tgag/jason_aldean_tattoo_numerology_and_symbolism/

Alot of people will mention that “JA is his initials and he just likes poker and that's why he got the tattoo.)

In the places ive seen this fact brought up people will simply write it off as a guy getting a tattoo of his initials.WRONG: His name is JASON ALDINE WILLIAMS“Aldean changed his name on the suggestion of Monte C. Willis, a music consultant hired by Barry Williams (now partners in managing Curb Recording artist Rachel Holder).[citation needed] "There was an artist named Jason D. Williams performing all over Nashville at the time and I felt like there would be a lot of confusion, so I called Barry and suggested the name change. Really, not an easy thing to suggest to a father, but ultimately it worked out well". Monte Willis: "In order to stand out, he changed the spelling of his middle name, Aldine, to come up with the name Aldean.” https://twitter.com/MUSICARCHITECTS

This is the gent who made Jasons new name for him. His initials would have been JW or JAW had Monte not been there to Craft his new name.

So the JA persona was Crafted by a dude called “MUSICARCHITECTS” on twitter.

The next crafted part of his persona is BLACKJACK RIDGE.

  1. The Marilyn Manson connection.
https://www.reddit.com/Retconned/comments/744vxd/the_mandalay_effect_synchronicity_binding_the/

Where does Marilyn Manson come in? Well I hadn't seen him in the news in Ages and I see a couple interviews of him talking about
columbine, which came out on 9-23-17. Now He has a new album called heaven upside down. The first track on this album is “Revelation 12” which is the day of the Rev 12 sign.
So the day before The shooting Mr Manson was crushed under a giant GUN prop on stage.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BzVCaxdb6vo

So he comes out talking about Columbine The first big noted mass shooting in recent times. Then a couple days later is injured by a giant gun. The day after that we experience the biggest shooting in history.

So lets look at the songs he just released before the shooting.

Released Sept 11th..... hmmm

https://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/marilynmanson/weknowwhereyoufuckinglive.html

Let's make something clear We're all recording this as it happens Those diamond-bullet storefront-blood-bank Splinters and stained glass

The world was stripped of its superficial surfaces We don't intend to just eat the street The asphalt is the good meat And we will sleep on the skin of its nightmares We will sleep on the skin of its nightmares "It's time to just kill this crowd And scream as fucking loud..."

We dont intend to eat the street. Its time to just kill this crowd and scream just as loud.

Fire fire fire fire fire away Fire fire fire fire fire away Fire fire fire fire fire away Fire fire fire fire fire fire fire away (22 fires)

I love the sound of shells hitting the ground, man I love the sound of shells hitting the ground I love it

I really dont have to emphasize or doing any reaching here. This is pretty odd.

The next song off his album released 11 days before 10-01-2017 which is a 111 day. Kill4ME

https://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/marilynmanson/kill4me.html

From the getgo the title is apt.
Your hotel hall won't be so vacant And I can tell that you ain't faking Because I take death threats Like the best of them
Would you kill, kill, kill for me? I love you enough to ask you again Would you kill, kill, kill for me? You won't be kissing me unless you kill for me Kill, kill, kill for me
Hotel hall......

“This is a sacrifice.” Self explanatory.

The North American leg of the Heaven Upside Down Tour will begin on September 29, and will incorporate dates at several music festivals, So the tour began and the gun fell upside down injuring him at the start of his tour.

So on further research This album was supposed to release on Valentines day.2-14-17.... Wait a tic. We just saw this date. 6M 6W 6D before 10-01-17 was this day the same day they evacuated oroville.

Robbie williams connectionRobbie Williams has a song called “The road to Mandalay” The same title of the poem written by the Freemason Rudyard Kipling which was recited by Boris Johnson 1 day before 33,333 days after the release of the movie “The road to Mandalay” of which was made by MGM studios.(and is also recited by Charles Dance 777 days before on the 70th anniversary of VJ day).... who owns the Mandalay bay/Luxor pyramid/ and the concert grounds that form a perfectly equilateral triangle of 444.44 yards between each of the 3 points.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eternity/The_Road_to_Mandalay

Just the name of the song doesnt do much but as you know there is more.https://www.lyricsfreak.com/robbie+williams/me+my+monkey_20116746.html

“We made tracks to The Mandalay Bay Hotel “

“Me and my monkey With a dream and a gun I'm hoping my monkey don't point that gun at anyone Me and my monkey Like Butch and the Sun dance Kid Trying to understand why he did what he did Why he did what he did”

“We got the elevator, I hit the 33rd floor We had a room up top with the panoramic views like nothing you'd ever seen before “

The name of the Hotel, The floor of the shooting … and the reference of the gun, and trying to understand why he did what he did.

It turns out she was on Dr phils show on 3-20-2013, She was on the show for being a Narcissist..... Now I dont know about you but I dont know if the people that go on Jerry springer, oprah, dr phil or any of these types of shows are completely genuine.
I cant find a full clip but this is just weirder and weirder

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aKRgcS9vc4Q
Now I was surprised to find that her twitter is Public. And what I found is pretty dang odd.

1st thing I noticed was the absolute overwhelming amount of rap music. And not 1 country song. And looking at this event It is really only country music stars. Again this by itself is nothing, just another clue.

The VERY last post before the shooting was “The presidents face” by JACKA (this is important.)
https://genius.com/The-jacka-the-presidents-face-lyrics Note the word illuminate.
The First post AFTER the shooting was a retweet of 6lack. Stressed about things I shouldn't even be stressing about.
I see BLACKJACK coded in this Jacka or Jack Ace A perfect hand in blackjack.
This is her first post since the shooting. Not something hey guys Im ok, or anything like that.
Then another quote from 6lack (common occurrence here along with Jacka)
“u gotta love them innocent looking girls that are actually bad” This is the next morning after the shooting.
Continuing through her feed you will see her pushing the multiple shoote shooters on the ground/ military experience/ and antigun control bend.

Ok so enough about her. Ill let use your own discernment to decide what you think im just sharing the data and syncs as they came too me.

SO what about BLACKJACK or 6lackjacka, in reference to The twitter feed.

  1. Ludacris Vices connection.


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YvcsyiwxU4E

Video begins at 10PM same as shooting.

Same wing of hotel. Showing the concert grounds as well as the Luxor Pyramid. Unknow if the same floor. Filmed before shooting 1 month prior, released 4 days after. Very last frame of video alights Ludacris Bighead with the black pyramids capstone.

ISIS ISIS ISIS is repeated throughout. Because who the F says ICES

  1. Tom petty connection.

Tom petty dies the day after the shooting. His last performance being at the Luxor Pyramid.

was startled to read the Tom Petty had a heart attack shortly after the Vegas shooting. The media then went back and forth saying he wasn't dead and then he was again. Tom petty was one of the founders of tom petty and the Heartbreakers, and he died of a broken heart.

He was 66Y 11M 11Days old on the day of his death and the Vegas attacks. This converts to 66y 345 days 34566.
So how does that connect back to Vegas because a linear connection isn't as solid as a fractal or spiral.
http://lasvegas.eventful.com/events/tom-petty-/[email protected]

This shows that Tom Pettys last performance in Vegas Was at the LUXOR hotel On his 66th birthday Almost a year from the Harvest that would take place on 10-01-17.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HDky7zFS_ms

To tie this connection up nicely we have ALDEAN singing PETTY's song......

  1. That days Chabad bible verse......

And you also have this preacher dude Standing in front of the concert doing his spiel. We've seen this many times before so its not shocking, but its just an additional piece.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AhbhQnzmIQo

So the daily bible verse from Chabad.org is very applicable.
Chapter 60-65 of Psalms. Psalms is a book of verses written to music. So we have the musical connection.
Chapter 64 smacked me right in the face. Hard, jeez.

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Psalm+64&version=NIV

"Hear my voice, O God, as I recount [my woes]; preserve my life from the terror of the enemy.
Shelter me from the schemes of the wicked, from the conspiracy of evildoers,
who have sharpened their tongue like the sword, aimed their arrow-a bitter word-
to shoot at the innocent from hidden places; suddenly they shoot at him, they are not afraid.
They encourage themselves in an evil thing, they speak of laying traps; they say: "Who will see them?”
"Terror of the enemy" "Shelter me for the schemes of the wicked and the conspiracy of evildoers."
"To shoot at the innocent from hidden places." Really...Really shooting is in the bible?
"They sought pretexts; [and when] they completed a diligent search, each man [kept the plot] inside, deep in the heart."
This is another phrase dripping with meaning for me. "Sought pretexts" Looking for answers, but the answers are in our hearts.
"But God will shoot them with his arrows; they will suddenly be struck down.
He will turn their own tongues against them and bring them to ruin; all who see them will shake their heads in scorn.
All people will fear; they will proclaim the works of God and ponder what he has done."
"All people will fear and proclaim the works of god and ponder what he has done."
People are afraid and wondering WTF is going on.
I take in all news and data points whenever I look into things, A holistic approach is required and nothing can be cast aside as not applicable.

TLDR: The Route 91 Harvest festival was one of the most synchnronisitcally connect events I have even see since 9-11. As for the HOW, WHY,WHO I don't know. All I am presenting here are the peculiar temporal anomaly contained within.

The Mandalay bay hotel was named after the poem “The road to Mandalay” written by notable Freemason Rudyard Kipling. The hotel is owned by the same company that produced the film “The road to Mandalay” which was released in theaters 33,333 days before the Harvest 91 event.

The day before the event, British Secretary of state was reported to be reciting the poem “The road to Mandalay” in the exact temple where Rudyard Kipling was inspired to write it. What peculiar here is that the recitation was filmed in june but didnt appear in the news until Sept-30, the day before the event that would happen at the hotel named after the temple the poem was recited in.

777 days before of the 70th anniversary of VJ day the former king of the 7 kingdoms Charles Dance/Tywin Lannister Reads the Road to Mandalay in front of thousands and is broadcasted live to millions of people.

The day before Marilyn Manson is crushed under a gun stage prop during a concert while singing “Sweet Dreams” 7770 days after the initial release of the MM cover.. This connection becomes more curious with the content of his Kill4me and “we know where you fucking live”

Robbie Williams released an album with the same name of the poem we are finding so prevalent here . He also made a song called “Me and my monkey” In this song Going to the Mandalay bay hotel getting on the elevator and hitting the 33rd floor along with bringing a gun up and have a wide vista, perfect view. A fellow redditor pointed out this oddity

http://www.mansonwiki.com/wiki/My_Monkey My monkey was a song Written and performed by Charles Manson. And then reperformed by Marilyn Manson later on. The lyrics repeating some stunning lines.

I am a mechanical boyIt's an illusionPostulated, mocked upThrough confusionConfusion, it's an illusionUtter confusionLive on in your illusion

https://genius.com/Charles-manson-mechanical-man-lyrics

Robbie williams has a tatoo of the roaring lion opposite of where Jason Aldean Williams has his Black hole sun/ Blackjack tattoo. The tattoo image of Blackjack signifies the date as well as references a Illuminati card.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steve_Jackson_Games,_Inc._v._United_States_Secret_Service

The company which made this has been involved with some peculiar things as well.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I dont really think this is a Conspiracy in the sense that every element was forethought and prepared just so that these alignments would take place.... I think it has something more to do with the universe trying to wake people up to the dream this reality is.

My wife was waking me up earlier than Id like to be woken the other day and a distinct metaphor came to the front of my mind. I DO NOT LIKE TO BE WOKEN UP........ Id rather be dreaming or getting just one more dream in before having to slog thru the reality that persists.

This “Seems” like a dream..... Like the elements and factors in reality are speaking to each individual person in their own ways. The universe “Seeing” itself through the consciousness it produces. The same way a dream can be interpreted to suss out messages from the subconscious we can Analyze our own day to day reality in comparison with the whole to suss out a message from the Superconcious.

Well that's all I have on this topic. Im sure there are about 100 things I missed but please feel free to add the various curiosities surrounding this event and I will take note and delve deeper. Stay aware my friends.

2018.10.05 07:08 qwertycoder Revisiting the Mandalay bay event 1 year later. Compilation of curiosities.

Hello world, I want to bring up The Mandalay bay Sync sequence that has gotten a bit more interesting since our last discussion. It appears that a lot of people have moved on from this event either coming down on the side of Conspiracy or the side of “ The mainstream story” I want to share the Plethora of Coincidences that when looked at holistically paint a picture quite a bit deeper than a “Conspiracy of Men”
https://www.reddit.com/conspiracy/comments/75ubvc/what_is_with_all_those_numbers_a_theory_to_the/
https://www.reddit.com/conspiracy/comments/78rzsz/hurricane_wienstien_the_mandalay_effect_and_the/
Here is a list of the facts that shine a synchromystic light on the event and specifically the word Mandalay.
Boris Johnson was Reported to have recited the poem Road to Mandalay within the temple and that it was in poor taste due too the author of the poem. Here is the kicker and the most peculiar part. The event of going to Myanmar was JAN-21-2017. The actual news reporting this reference of Mandalay was not until SEPT-30-2017 the day before the “Mandalay bay Event.”
http://www.foxnews.com/world/2017/01/21/british-foreign-secretary-positive-and-optimistic-on-trump.html

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dXtYLmoG9Ek
Why is this the case? Why did an event which happened simultaneous to trumps Inauguration Ball not include the words Mandalay until over 15 publications announced the Gaffe of Mandalay the day before the “Mandalay bay Massacre”. Some will imply that they KNEW that Mandalay was going to be a “Keyword” . But what if it is bigger that that... what if the universe has highlighted this word?
2.The geometric coincidence of alignments..
Now here is what I found the DAY after the event.
https://imgur.com/xUw8WA4 This is the Equilateral triangle formed from the Mandalay Bay Hotel, Luxor Pyramid and the Harvest 91 stage.
https://imgur.com/rEstE0m
https://imgur.com/iiRWp2l
https://imgur.com/SSO2L5b
These three images show the distances between 444.44 yards each line What is even stranger is that from the 32nd window of the Mandalay bay hotel to the front door of the Las Vegas Masonic temple. 7,777.77 meters A very precise alignment that is made more peculiar. https://imgur.com/W3jju9u The yellow line is from the window to the front door of the Las vegas Masonic temple. The blue line is the same point but pointing at the center of the Mandalay bay hotel.
https://imgur.com/gacOHsG
The Blue line coming from the masonic temple bisects the equilateral triangle and crosses between The obelisk and the sphinx.

Bisecting this Parking lot as well as crossing over the white car at the center point.

I saw the arch of the Mandalay bay and the obelisk and how they were in a line. So I measured and this on is damn near to the pixel accurate from the far corner of the obelisk and the arch. Again 444.44 yards.......
So visually you have a perfect Repeating digit Equilateral triangle showcasing the Pyramid the Stage and the Hotel. All of which are owned by the same company
The Company that owns it all...... MGM Metro Goldwyn Mayer. https://www.trademarkia.com/enlightened-society-for-global-transformation-74349850.html
Oh thats right it is the Trademarked logo for the Mandalay group owned by MGM studios.

It turns out she was on Dr phils show on 3-20-2013, She was on the show for being a Narcissist..... Now I dont know about you but I dont know if the people that go on Jerry springer, oprah, dr phil or any of these types of shows are completely genuine.
I cant find a full clip but this is just weirder and weirder
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aKRgcS9vc4Q
Now I was surprised to find that her twitter is Public. And what I found is pretty dang odd.
1st thing I noticed was the absolute overwhelming amount of rap music. And not 1 country song. And looking at this event It is really only country music stars. Again this by itself is nothing, just another clue.

Now looking before the shooting.

The VERY last post before the shooting was “The presidents face” by JACKA (this is important.)
https://genius.com/The-jacka-the-presidents-face-lyrics Note the word illuminate.
The First post AFTER the shooting was a retweet of 6lack. Stressed about things I shouldn't even be stressing about.
I see BLACKJACK coded in this Jacka or Jack Ace A perfect hand in blackjack.
This is her first post since the shooting. Not something hey guys Im ok, or anything like that.
Then another quote from 6lack (common occurrence here along with Jacka)
“u gotta love them innocent looking girls that are actually bad” This is the next morning after the shooting.
Continuing through her feed you will see her pushing the multiple shoote shooters on the ground/ military experience/ and antigun control bend.
Ok so enough about her. Ill let use your own discernment to decide what you think im just sharing the data and syncs as they came too me.
SO what about BLACKJACK or 6lackjacka, in reference to The twitter feed.
  1. Ludacris Vices connection.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YvcsyiwxU4E
Video begins at 10PM same as shooting.
Same wing of hotel. Showing the concert grounds as well as the Luxor Pyramid. Unknow if the same floor. Filmed before shooting 1 month prior, released 4 days after. Very last frame of video alights Ludacris Bighead with the black pyramids capstone.
ISIS ISIS ISIS is repeated throughout. Because who the F says ICES
  1. Tom petty connection.
Tom petty dies the day after the shooting. His last performance being at the Luxor Pyramid.
was startled to read the Tom Petty had a heart attack shortly after the Vegas shooting. The media then went back and forth saying he wasn't dead and then he was again. Tom petty was one of the founders of tom petty and the Heartbreakers, and he died of a broken heart.
He was 66Y 11M 11Days old on the day of his death and the Vegas attacks. This converts to 66y 345 days 34566.
So how does that connect back to Vegas because a linear connection isn't as solid as a fractal or spiral.
http://lasvegas.eventful.com/events/tom-petty-/[email protected]
This shows that Tom Pettys last performance in Vegas Was at the LUXOR hotel On his 66th birthday Almost a year from the Harvest that would take place on 10-01-17.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HDky7zFS_ms

To tie this connection up nicely we have ALDEAN singing PETTY's song......

  1. That days Chabad bible verse......
And you also have this preacher dude Standing in front of the concert doing his spiel. We've seen this many times before so its not shocking, but its just an additional piece.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AhbhQnzmIQo
So the daily bible verse from Chabad.org is very applicable.
Chapter 60-65 of Psalms. Psalms is a book of verses written to music. So we have the musical connection.
Chapter 64 smacked me right in the face. Hard, jeez.
https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Psalm+64&version=NIV
"Hear my voice, O God, as I recount [my woes]; preserve my life from the terror of the enemy.
Shelter me from the schemes of the wicked, from the conspiracy of evildoers,
who have sharpened their tongue like the sword, aimed their arrow-a bitter word-
to shoot at the innocent from hidden places; suddenly they shoot at him, they are not afraid.
They encourage themselves in an evil thing, they speak of laying traps; they say: "Who will see them?”
"Terror of the enemy" "Shelter me for the schemes of the wicked and the conspiracy of evildoers."
"To shoot at the innocent from hidden places." Really...Really shooting is in the bible?
"They sought pretexts; [and when] they completed a diligent search, each man [kept the plot] inside, deep in the heart."
This is another phrase dripping with meaning for me. "Sought pretexts" Looking for answers, but the answers are in our hearts.
"But God will shoot them with his arrows; they will suddenly be struck down.
He will turn their own tongues against them and bring them to ruin; all who see them will shake their heads in scorn.
All people will fear; they will proclaim the works of God and ponder what he has done."
"All people will fear and proclaim the works of god and ponder what he has done."
People are afraid and wondering WTF is going on.
I take in all news and data points whenever I look into things, A holistic approach is required and nothing can be cast aside as not applicable.
...................................................................................................................................................................................................
More coming soon....

2018.07.05 05:51 xandfan IJW: Show Dogs (2018)

Read other reviews of mine here
Here's the story, a hardened cop who works with the FBI is on a case that requires them to keep their cool. During a mission, a major screw up by the cop causes a major catastrophe to happen and so they need to go undercover as a beauty pageant in order to save the day and while doing so, maybe the hardened agent will learn that beauty pageant queens aren't just about being pretty. I know, sounds like a good movie right? It should, because that's the basic plot of Miss Congeniality, one of the best films of the year 2000 and a film that's so beloved that every April 25th we all post that scene where a contestant is asked about their perfect date. It's one of Sandra Bullock's best movies... and it's what was shamelessly ripped off in the creation of this film.
Show Dogs is a film about Max (Played by Ludacris), a police dog with an attitude problem who teams up with Frank (Played by Will Arnett), his human partner who has to stop an animal smuggling scheme that's taking place at a dog show. Apparently, that's all they do, this is just a specific unit dedicated to dog crimes... oh, did I say unit? I mean the entire FBI/Police Force only handles crimes that involve animals, which is spelled out in an early sequence that's so mind-numbingly boring that it fits in perfectly with every other mind-numbingly boring sequence in this film. The writers of the film clearly didn't care, which is shocking because you'd think with roughly 14 writers that one of them might actually try and make a story that's worth telling... then again, this is a team of writers who thought the line "I'm good alright, good at taking a bite out of crime" was a piece of dialogue that was worthy of being put on paper as part of an actual script.
The movie is full to the brim with cheesy and unfunny dialogue like that, it's a film that's written with either bad puns about dog things OR references to much better things. A basic rule of making a movie, do not mention a better movie in your bad movie and this movie namedrops Turner and Hooch multiple times. This film WISHES it was anywhere near as good as Turner and Hooch. Turner and Hooch was at least memorable and had decent dialogue. Show Dogs has neither of those things, what it does have is a bizarre belief that "Reference" is the same thing as "Joke". Just making a Lego Batman reference while you're talking to Will Arnett is not a joke. Just having RuPaul turn up to spout RuPaul quotes is not a joke. Just having Ludacris' character be into hip hop is not a joke. I should not need to tell professional writers this but, apparently, I need to tell them this.
I also need to tell the CGI artists to stop because oh my god the CGI in this film is just bad. By this point, doing lip motions on an animal is old hat, if there is a movie with talking animals then chances are that they've just used real dogs and animated their mouths to move and it's done here too, but it somehow looks worse than it did back in 2001 when Cats & Dogs came out. It's not helped by having several major animal characters as CGI creations, so sometimes a real dog will be sharing the screen with a CGI panda and it's shockingly obvious which one is real and which one's fake. If all the animals were CGI it might actually look better because then it's a stylistic choice and allows for some form of consistency but when some are more obviously animated than others, it's a bit of a distraction. There are times when they do try and CGI the dogs for specific gags and effects, and it's possibly the most horrifying thing I've seen all year.
It stuns me how much they tried to get past the adults into a childrens movie. This film already has a little notoriety due to a scene that some claimed to be normalizing child grooming, a scene that got cut by the time it landed in my local cinema... they cut that scene, but we're going to keep the scene with the obvious junkie dog who is selling info for a hit of 'Catnip'? There's a ton of 'jokes' that are clearly meant to be aimed towards the adults who are dragged along by their children who don't know any better. Jokes about grabbing balls and waxing and drugs and all kinds of things, and it's absolutely fine to work those kinds of jokes into a kids movie just so the adults can have a laugh too... but, those jokes should be goddamn funny and none of the 'jokes' in this film get anything above a small smile of recognition because I understood the reference they just made.
The worst part is how much this film wastes it's cast. Did Will Arnett lose a bet? Does he owe the IRS? Did the director help him move a couch? Why would he be doing this? It makes no sense but to his credit, he's not phoning it in. He's actually trying to make this character work. He's failing because there's no character to make work, but he's trying. Same with Natasha Lyonne, who is way too damn good for this film and could've easily treated this like it was a school play but goddamn it, she actually made her character likable. Even Ludacris, who is only given the job of providing the voice to Max, seems like he's trying to make something out of this. Every actor is actually trying, they're actually putting in an effort to create performances that could be funny or interesting or heartwarming but they are let down by the atrocious script and poor visuals that the movie seems to think is in any way acceptable.
This movie is in that sweet spot of too boring to be good, too competent to be bad and too mundane to be memorable. It's the kind of film that would've gone straight to DVD about 15 years ago, which is roughly when it might've actually looked good in comparison to the other movies that were coming out around that time. Honestly, the fact that it is so completely bland and flavourless might actually make it worse than A Dog's Purpose for me. Sure, A Dog's Purpose might've been my most hated film of 2017, but at least I remember it. It was awful, but it at least there was some substance there. This is just bland and boring, impossible to take offence at but impossible to enjoy.

2018.06.29 02:20 xxpired_milk Does the person that commits a form of infidelity view the original partner as a parental figure?

This is likely ludacris. It's not my opinion by any means. It threw me into a mental whirlwind when hearing it.
Someone I know told their ex partner that a psychologist had concluded that his ex girlfriend could no longer be attracted to him because she now views him as a father figure since cheating on him, and she subconsciously views any romantic act with him incestuous.
This is crazy, right? Either a huge misinterpetation or a lie on his part for some unknown reason?
Thoughts?

2018.02.17 21:57 nullescience [Synaptica] Cyberpunk Characters and World

Characters
David Freeman
A hard boiled freelance detective for the Federal Bureau of Cyberneurics. David recalls Rustin Cohle, Joe Miller, Jimmy McNulty, Sherlock Holmes with a shot of Christian Bale on the rocks.
David is a caucasian male in his late forties, approximately six feet two inches. Some long line of introspective European, maybe German or Jewish. He is medium built with coiled muscles and razer reflexes from prior military training and cardiovascular exercise. He has a gaunt angled face framed with stiff black hair just beginning to edge grey. His nose, bent from too many bar fights, watches over chapped and sealed lips. His eyes are hollow almond, the kind that wish they were somewhere else. He wears a prussian blue work suit which hasn’t been ironed in a while and a coffee-stained dress shirt.
Loss drives David, loss of his daughter. He spends his days remorsing on her death and his nights searching for her killer. All the while drowning in the closest drink. After his daughter’s death David had her neural network digitally entombed, the demi-soul of her thoughts now dwelling on a cerebral implant inside his head. He wants his daughter back but knows he can never have that. He harbors burning vengeance for the one who took his daughter away for him but six long years of searching have brought him no closer. His is a relentless pursuit of truth.
David is a rowboat of self-inflicted rage amid a tempest of sorrow. David keeps mostly to himself and has trouble trusting the intentions of others. Experienced at sensing the order of things, David focuses on objective facts and patterns to solve crimes. Everything is processed through logical filters and his curiosity is often more interested in finding answers then the answers themselves. Always vigilant, David adapts to changing circumstances spontaneously. His voice is monologue and melancholy, the kind talking directly to you. His vocabulary, down to earth and working man but all to often straying toward existentialism.
David is a heterosexual man. His ex-wife used to break out the kinky handcuffs, but that was before she left, taking his chance of a happy little family with her. And the dog, he liked the dog. It is not that David won’t stop and momentarily contemplate the taunt wet curves of the stripper at the bar. But it always comes back to the pointlessness of it all which prevents him from forming human connections.
Politically, David supports the Hegemony because the Hegemony supports his paycheck. He knows the government does bad things but, the way he sees it, it is not his problem. Whether it is this party in power or that one makes little difference. David holds much the same beliefs on religion. He is apatheistic, whether or not God exists being irrelevant since God clearly has no intention of interfering down here.
Sophia “Jax” Mao
A retro hacker determined to change the world. Jax multiplies Lisbeth Salander, Trinity, Sombra, Major Mira Killian, Elliot Alderson, with a hit of Tiny Tina straight to the veins.
Jax is a hispanic female in her early twenties, approximately five foot one inch. She is fluent in mexican and ryukyuan. Growing up on the street, Jax was a parkour fanatic and her body is thin and lithe with viperious agility.. Her face is a mocha teardrop laced with a midnight lavender mohawk and not-so-subtle eyebrow extensions. A platinum nose ring clips a petite nose above sensual lips the most irresistible violet. Her eyes scream neon pink from cybernetic iris implants. An ink black dragon scrawls across her elegant curved back. Her nails are hieroglyphic LED. She wears a short leather jacket, studded rivet belt and frayed mini-skirt, all shades between onyx and pitch. Her scent is lilac.
Pleasure and fame drive Jax. She wants nothing more than to be remarkable among a sea of forgotten people and ride every thrilling sensation she can achieve on her way to the top. Orphaned at a young age Jax was raised on the streets and it was on the streets that she learned to hack. At age seven she had broken into her first cryptocurrency bank. At age eleven she had programed a class III artificial intelligence. But it was Retros, the virtual reflections of the past, where Sophia truly found her domain. Here in the Retros, Jax is queen, bending chance and circumstance to her will. She spends her days dominating cyberspace under her alias, telecasting her performances to a captive holo-vid fan club. She spends her nights lit by hazers, empathogens and psychoanaleptics in underground rave discotecas.
Jax is an ecstacy firecracker illuminating a starless night. She laughs, loves and lives her life to the fullest. She is seductive, daring, and optimistic. Yet she knows her waves in the web have made her some deadly enemies. She uses her cleverness and flexibility to constantly evade these foes, always having an alternative contingency. Jax is charged up by being around other people and can multitask like a processor in parallel. She focuses on possibilities and values creativity and innovation. Feelings give her direction and she is sensitive to the emotions of others often using these to manipulate them. Her voice is quirky and hyperactive. Her vocabulary playful tones but a penchant for awkward cursing.
Romantically, Jax is bisexual woman with preference for women. She has seen it all but don’t make the mistake of thinking she is a slut. Every partner she has ever been with has had to earn it. Problem with a girl like Jax, she is rarely satisfied for long. She is not narcissistic, nor high maintenance, she just has space rocket standards.
Jax falls somewhere between libertarian and anarchist. Part of her dreams of a future where triumphant democracy allows us to live free. But a smarter part of her knows that it is all going to have to come burning down to get there. On triple proxy encrypted channels there are messages with certain rebel elements. Whether she would even take the next step even Jax doesn't know for sure. Jax is a Catholic. She knows her Madre would have never approved of her lifestyle but nevertheless she still clings to the old religion. She finds ironic comfort, like a fairytale amidst the swirling chaos of everything else. Be a good person and upload to heaven. Someday.
Eli Achebe Malik
A slave mechanic for the Keays War Raiders. Eli is constructed from Idris Elba, Denzel Washington, Samuel L. Jackson, Tom Hardy, and nitro primed with Ludacris.
Eli is an african american male in his mid thirties, approximately six feet seven inches. Before the Fall, genetic engineering was widespread and in the post-apocalyptic nomads these mutagen chromosomes have been evolutionarily selected. His bones are ultra-dense from rare earth metal ossification. Myosacro hyperplasia reinforced by years of junkyard weight lifting have built his muscles brutish. Eli’s face has a rough texture and granite jawline, his hair is corded dreadlocks adorned with cerimonial trinkets. His skin is scarred ebony hide. His hawk eyes are shaded moss green. His left arm is a military-grade cybernetic aug with hydraulic servos and piezoelectric twitch fibers. He wears a threaded dirt linen tunic with camouflage leather breeches. When traveling in the mantle tunnels he wears a mole suit, water cooled trench coat and strapped oxygen tank. He speaks rarely but when he does his voice is calm and bass. His vocabulary is english mixed with Akkadian.
Survival drives El, survival at any conceivable cost. Taken from his birth clan as annual tribute, his first memories are of the long trek across the Oklahoma floodplains. He was sold at the outskirts of the Mojave irradiated zone to the Keays Boys. The savages brought him to the trash mesa ruins of San Diego. They forced him into the mechanic trenches, but under the encouraging touch of thorn whips, Eli found he had a gift. He was adept at turning rusting metal into diesel-spitting machine. His cars, whether screaming past salt-flat speedways or pillaging neighboring tribes, always seemed the fastest. On his name day he was sold to the Boss for work on the warlord’s personal mech walker. He spends his days tinkering with gatling machine guns and squeezing every ounce of horsepower out of turbine engines.
Eli is a calm wind over scorching desert. He has a serenity that comes from having everything taken away. He seeks a harmony with nature and shows a gentleness towards lingering life. But buried underneath that is loathing and fury for what his tormentors have done to him. He is independant save for the shackles that bind him, yet dependable, pragmatic and tenacious. In his mind what separates mankind from beast is values, chief among them honesty and justice and he judges others by this same code of honor.
Eli is a heterosexual man. At an early age his genitals were mutilated both to boost testosterone for cage fights and render slaves unable to reproduce. David’s religion prohibits sexual desires outside of marriage and he is quick to temper errant thoughts. David, despite being a lone wolf, longs for a family some day.
Eli is an outsider. All he has ever known is gang tyranny and tribal castes. Eli believes deeply in the shamanistic creed of his birth, loosely translated as the Quake Brotherhood. This religion preaches that a prophet will come some day to reclaim the earth and only those who follow the rituals strictly will be saved. Eli has practiced these rituals in secret for many long years.
Neo Angeles
The Towers
Neo Angeles. Founded circa 2058 in the still cooling radioactive ash of old Los Angeles, the city was an amalgamation of constructed mountains and excativated canyons. On a clear day, from the outskirts of the Mojave Irradiated Zone you could just make out the Towers gleaming against the bay. Massive citadels formed from titan alloy skeleton and indomitable granicrete core, these mammoth institutes formed the foundation upon which humanity's future would be built or her soul finally crushed. There were seven towers.
Lakshfi, Vault of Prosperity, home of the banking guilds and mega finance firms, was bedecked opulent golden whirls on decadent silver, her enormous clockface rang constantly trading marketplace cash, commodities and wealth from the Trans-African Republic to the Russian Confederacy. Anbal, High Seat of Justice, adorned marble columns with blind lady justice overwatching, in her halls the Judicators safeguarded the populace from unrelenting lawlessness. Seshrat, The Bureaucratic Monolith, tubule stylus where legions of unnamed bureaucrats churned the gears of society. Genaea, Birthplace of Gen-gineering, verdant helix whose spiraling terraces overflowed with designer vegetation and rejuvative stemcell tanks. Budyha, The Happy Corporation, supplier of franchised acme products worldwide, cartoon animations dancing along prismatic cubic surfaces. TyrX, NanoRobotic Industries, an ominous scarlet ziggurat, empty scarab husk abandoned since the Drone Wars.
The last Tower, Irez, rose above the rest. Her triangular heights crawling with vid screens and vox speakers. Pinnacle crowned satellite array broadcasting Pan-China syndicated programming. Irez was the nexus for the Neuro Electronic Terminus and it was said those working in the server bunkers underneath Irez could still feel the vibrational dreams of all those lost in the NET.
The Boxes
The Boxes were the labyrinth sprawl at the foot of the Towers, a concrete jungle of condominiums squares and overlapping residential zones. Make enough credits and you live in a penthouse in the Highrizers. Don’t make enough and you sleep in an individual coffin bed slotted next to a couple hundred of your neighbors. For everyone in between there was the apartments. A billion people lived her, all struggling to find purpose among rampant commercialism, racial divides and a society become machine.
The residential zones were checkered against the ever busy commercial sectors where your happiness was only a price tag away. Mega-malls, prefabricated chain stores and retail outlets reproducing at the limits of supply and demands. Here buzzing stream of delivery drones ferry online orders to the convenience of home.
Interconnecting the residential zones and the commercial sectors was an expansive web of bridge, magnetic track and hoverway. The major transit hubs pumped the citizen lifeblood to the city through pneumonic hyperloops. Supersonic flights continuously taking off and landing at Asimove International. Perched on the hill overlooking the airfields was a lone X-21 Traveler, the launchpad on darkened lockdown since the moon colony went dark. Streams of fishing trawlers, cargo freighters, juvenile sportscraft and private yachts filtered through the cities two ports, North Marina and Rancid Harbor.
At the northern end of the Boxes was Gates University, you did well in primary schooling, you went to Gates with a chance at a better life someday. Next door was the Neo Angeles Archival Library, buried in those dusty mainframes were stories from before the Fall and even the occasional banned religious texts. Nearby Genaea Memorial, High Cross and Children’s heals those with priority insurance. Those more indigent queue for St. Bellevue, coughing in the exhaust from the Infirm Crematoriums.
The Boxes, for all it’s toil was not without its points of pleasure. In the Art district were the Grand Aero Theater, Bard Studioway, the Hover Speedway, and the Rave Circuses. The Entertainment Complex humed with upscale nightclubs, aroma restaurants, and the privilege casinos. Hybrid Gardens was home to reanimated birds and beasts from the extinct wild, now thriving in a photosynthetic jungle. Lakeshore Hills to the south offered serenity living for country club suburbanites. Vacation Island, pristine beach resort of the Elite, rested just offshore. And not to be forgotten was the theme park Budyha Land, family centric incorporated fun for all paying customers.
The Industrial Pits
Beneath the Boxes were kilometer deep bore holes penetrating the earth’s crust. Hollowed out shortly after the Twenty Minute War, they were originally intended to serve as massive fallout shelters for the city populace. However, they had since become dark fallen places where societies most undesirable seemed to settle. The poor, villainous and lost condemned to a subterranean life sentence.
The Tech Caverns housed the massive nuclear facilities and hydroponics plants, life support for surface side. Augs, those who had chosen cybernetic enhancement for medical or cultural reasons were shunned by society but welcome in the engineering communities down here. The Indentured, civilians who sold their rights for protection, food and shelter, worked laborious and short lives in factory towns. Slugs, those addicted to drugs or virtual stimulation litered the sewer tunnels down here. Among these factory towns were the ethnic enclaves, Little India, Euroburg, Asiatown and Latinville, each with a dedicated crime family engaged in all out gang warfare amid ghetto squalor.
Descend down a level and you would find the Subterrestrial Farms, growing luminescent biovats, gengineered plantations and meat slime nurseries. Harvesting drones nurtured and protected these pitch black fields from the hungry. The deepest abyssal Pits were mostly unknown. Hole 64 was a black site prison restricted to the most craven criminals and their machine wardens. Hole 51 was omega classified, some say it collapsed long ago, some say it contained pre-Fall relics. Those who said anymore, disappeared.
