2020.11.19 23:03 Orpherischt The Basic

In the prime number cipher:
Many of you will have heard of Event 201, which informed us about the coming 'Coronavirus pandemic'.
Rambling Context:
I first began looking into the number 1933 (and thus also 933) because of this novel, published in that year (of which I have a very yellowed 1930's print edition)...
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Shape_of_Things_to_Come
The novel has the frame story that it is a record of a series of dreams by a UN politician, which were confided to the 'author'. The entire book is written as a history book for the school student of 2106 AD, explaining the fall of our current civilization and how our future (and their current) Utopia was built. Critics go to lengths to discredit the various 'predictions' made but in general, there is a thematic arch that is nonetheless perhaps worth paying attention to (ie. exact dates are not really relevant, but the sequence is - it's the changes in the society, and the forces causing them, and in what order, that are perhaps more important - worth paying attention to as political lessons, if not as some form of prophecy or predictive programming, which cannot be discounted).
I have read the Shape of Things to Come twice, both times years ago. After my first read-through, I was impressed and entirely depressed, coming to reflect anew upon the dismal state of affairs in our own time. That things could be fixed if we could just do ... this or that.
A few years later, reading it again, I had a totally different impression. I was horrified at the Grand Presumption that Scientific Order claimed for itself as Shepherd of Man - not so much in the abstract - but because of the inevitable corruption that stains all valorous abstractions. No centrally powerful priesthood can be trusted, until man is perfected - which of course, is the overarching theme of the novel.
I might have to go through it again to see how my perspective might have shifted since the last reading.
Anyway, of the novel ('Europe' can imply all of 'western civilization', and perhaps might represent the entire world), wikipedia has:
A long economic slump causes a major war that leaves Europe devastated and threatened by plague. The nations with the strongest air-forces set up a benevolent dictatorship that paves the way for world peace by abolishing national divisions, enforcing the English language, promoting scientific learning and outlawing religion. The enlightened world-citizens are able to depose the dictators peacefully, and go on to breed a new race of super-talents, able to maintain a permanent utopia.
The book was published in 1933
  • "To Go Viral" = 1933 squares
  • .. "Catch the Coronavirus" = 1933 trigonal
  • ... "You cannot deny it" = 1933 trigonal
  • ... ... "The Infection" = 933 trigonal
  • ... ... "SARS-CoV-2" = 933 trigonal
  • ... ... .. [ "Original Sin" = 933 trigonal ]
  • ... ... .. .. (ie. The Bible is another key Textbook)
The number 933 is composed of 93 and 33.
  • "The" = "Name" = "Magic" = 33 alphabetic
  • "The Word" = 93 alphabetic
  • ... ( "Strong" = 93 alphabetic )
  • ... ( "Bend the Knee" = 93 alphabetic )
  • ... ( "Bend the Knee" = "Corona" = 224 jewish-latin-agrippa )
  • .... .. .. .. ( "Disease" = 224 english-extended )
  • ... .. .. ... .. ( "Soul" = "Temple" = 224 primes )
Wells' predicted war ends with no victor but total exhaustion, collapse and disintegration of all the fighting states and of the neutral countries, which are equally affected by the deepening economic crisis. The whole world descends into chaos: nearly all governments break down, and a devastating plague in 1956 and 1957 kills a large part of humanity and almost destroys civilization.
Wells then envisages a benevolent dictatorship, "The Dictatorship of the Air", which arises from the controllers of the world's surviving transport systems, who are the only people with global power. The dictatorship promotes science, enforces Basic English as a global lingua franca and eradicates all religions, setting the world on the road to a peaceful utopia. When the dictatorship chooses to execute a subject, the condemned person is given a chance to take a poison tablet (modelled on the Hemlock given to Socrates).
  • "Dictatorship of the Air" = "A Novel Coronavirus" = 224 alphabetic
The achievement of a classless society is not via a Marxist Dictatorship of the Proletariat, an idea that Wells completely rejected. Rather, the working class is massively "pulled upwards" and completely eliminated in several generations of intensive upward social mobility, in effect leaving a humanity entirely composed of "middle class intellectuals". The limited amount of physical labor still needed is performed by the world's youths, who undergo two years of "labor conscription" instead of military conscription, which is no longer needed.
  • "Middle class intellectual" = 1,189 english-extended
  • ... ( "Understand the Codes" = 1,189 english-extended )
  • ... .. .. ( "A First Step" = 1,189 trigonal )
  • ... .. .. [ "Breaking News" = 1,189 jewish-latin-agrippa ]
Eventually, after about 100 years of reshaping humanity, the Dictatorship of the Air is overthrown in a completely-bloodless coup, the former rulers are sent into honourable retirement and the world state "withers away". The last part of the book is a detailed description of the utopian world that emerges. The ultimate aim of this utopian world is to produce a world society composed entirely of polymaths, every one of its members being the intellectual equal of the greatest geniuses of the past.
  • "The Utopian Society" = 2020 trigonal
  • "Coronavirus Religion" = 2020 trigonal
The book displays one of the earliest uses of the abbreviation "C.E.", which Wells explains as "Christian Era" but it is now more usually understood as "Common Era"
The 'bloodless coup' is what I reference in terms of 'forgiveness' in this sort-of-poem:

This year is 2020 AD, and next year is 2021 AD

  • "1 Century" = 2021 squares
  • "A Century" = 2021 squares
  • "Measure Time" = "Time Measure" = 2021 squares
  • ... ( "New Count" = 2021 squares )
  • ... . ( "The New Son" = 2021 squares )

  • ... .. ... .. [ "Ziggurat" = 2021 squares ]
  • "Coronavirus Religion" = 2020 trigonal

  • .... . ... [ [ ... "Writings" = 2021 squares ] ]
  • .... . ... [ [ ... "To End All Disease" = 2021 squares ] ]
Many understand '20/20' vision as a symbol for clear sight, which we might extend to 'understanding'.
  • "Eye Measure" = 2020 squares [ ruler @ measure ]
Do you have 20/20 vision? Are the small letters on the chart...
  • "Entirely Obvious" = 2020 english-extended ( ? )
Next year you work for the Matrix Architect.
  • "Machine's City" = 2021 squares
You are all being brainwashed to be..
  • "City Machines" = 2021 squares
  • "Victory of the Machines" = 2021 trigonal
The Meat of the Matter:
The main reason for this thread is the notion of the 'enforcing of Basic English'. Of course, this has happened already, for a large portion of the world, in terms of much day-to-day commerce. English is the international language of worldwide Air Traffic Control. The 26-letter English-Latin alphabet is used, with little modification, by those writing many other languages.
  • "Spread" = 201 primes
  • "The Basic" = 201 primes ( "Twenty Six" = 555 primes )
Leaping wordplay, discount it, if it irks you:
Bass Sick @ Sick Bass @ Low Music @ Deep Frequencies @ Subliminal Sound @ ELF
The word 'Low' is an anagram of 'Owl', the bringer of the Wizard's mail and symbol of Wisdom and Fear. They also swoop low to catch their prey. Silently.
  • "Basic English" = "The Message" = "The Show" = 317 primes
  • ... .. ( "Whisper" = "A Great Theme" = 317 primes )
  • "Anthem" = "The Man" = 187 primes
  • .. ( "The Grand Framework" = 187 alphabetic )
  • .. ( "The Restoration" = 187 alphabetic )
The Orthodox is "Formal" = 187 jewish-latin-agrippa
.... .. 187 @ 187 .. ...
  • "Truth" = "Undeniable" = 87 alphabetic
  • ... .. ( "1 Man" = 87 primes )
  • .
  • "Truth" = "Nothing" = 87 alphabetic ( nothing @ zero @ sifr @ cipher )
... and for most, or all...
  • The Writings" = 1331 trigonal ( sapphire )
  • "Shape the World" = 1331 jewish-latin-agrippa ( zephyr )
As they say...
'As it is written, so it shall be done.'
I will modify that:
"As it is written, so it is done" = 108 reduced 1980 jewish-latin-agrippa
I make that modification because of its changed semantics, and to reference the key number 108, and because I was conceived in 1980, and born the next year.
The number 108 crops up in many religious observances, as well as in the orbital mechanics of Sun, Moon and Earth.
  • "Basic English" = "The Rules" = "Secret Club" = 108 alphabetic
  • ... ( "Geometry" = 108 alphabetic 108 reverse alphabetic )
  • ... ( "Full Moon" = 108 alphabetic 108 reverse alphabetic )
  • ... .. [ "Coronavirus Religion" = 2020 trigonal ]
  • ... .. [ "To Gather Under the Moon" = 2020 trigonal ]
'Gematria' is the Art of Numbers hiding behind Letters. It implies 'Geometry of Writing'.
  • "Basic English" = 54 in reduction [ 108 / 2 = 54 ]
  • ... ( "Sun" = 54 alphabetic )
  • ... ... ( "Love" = 54 alphabetic )
  • ... ... ( "Health" = 54 alphabetic )
  • ... ... ... ( "Nutritional" = 54 in reduction )
  • ... [ "Anthem" = "To Heal" = "The Man" = 187 primes ]
  • .. .. ( "The Grand Framework" = 187 alphabetic )
  • .. .. ( "The Restoration" = 187 alphabetic )
The Interactions of the Moon and Sun are Alchemical Keys, being Female and Male archetypes (at the very least). The Eclipse is a Key.
The 'Bicycle' is a 'Two-cycle', and the Sun and Moon have two interlocking cycles.
Time, and Timekeeping are Keys. The Kiss is one of the Great Keys.
  • "The Riddle" = "The Time" = "One Time" = 247 primes [ Open 24/7 ]
  • "Basic English" = 742 trigonal
  • "The New Lore of Spelling" = 742 primes
  • .. "Welcome to the School" = 1,742 trigonal
The golden ratio accurate to three decimal places, is 1.618...
  • "Know the Basic English School" = 1,618 jewish-latin-agrippa
  • ... ( "Know a textbook" = 1,618 jewish-latin-agrippa )
The map is not the territory (the terror of torah), or so they say.
  • "Know Geography" = 1,618 jewish-latin-agrippa
  • ... ( "Symbolic" = "Geography" = 1,618 squares )
It will be up to you to decide if the enforcement of Basic English is to be desired or not.
And it will be up to you to decide if my writings here are aiding the Language Conquest envisioned in the novel, or working against it, or stand as neutral witness.
I am not sure myself.
The word Witness is a Key.
As is, Written.
T H E . B A S I C ( "Enforce the English Language" = 711 primes ) [ enforce @ one force ]
0. Zero.Nothing.Circle.Zero.Cipher.Corona.Everything.Circle.Zero (@ Nero @ Eroz @ Eros)
1. Language is an Enigma (Machine). 'A' is a Key. Either you have a Point, or you don't.
2. Language is a Transmission of Enigmatic Spells, encoding Ideas. There are many 'Languages', but they are Dividing Branches rooted in The One Tree of Language. Division is a Key. Division is a Math-thematical Operation, and the Operation is the Great Work. Division is the trickiest of the basic algebraic procedures. The Monad divides into the Dyad, yet the Monad, or it's Concept, remains. Two hands (or Wings) work better than One. Animals onto the Archive two-by-two. Duality is a Duel that Ties. Breaking News: To Be or not, is a Key. Two Points implies a Vector: a Direction. The Vector has a Direction. The Victor has an Objective. One walks the Beaten Path, or strays, which may or may not be to go astray.
3. There are ostensibly Practical Ideas (needs, desires, dangers, general denotion of objects) and Abstract Ideas (futures, pasts, times, organisms, systems, numbers, symbols, relationships, metaphors). Sometimes the Practical is used to refer to the Ideal, and vise versa. While you might have a single Definition or understanding of a Word, others might have more, and imply them in their works, and if you blink, you just might miss them. ABC is a Key. Trilogy, Trinity and Threesome are Three Keys. Fire and Water. Air and Earth. The Triangle is a Pyramid viewed from one side. The Triangle is A First Surface. It is a Field, Bounded, like a Circle or Sphere, which are themselves expanded Points. Know Family is a Key. Families are made by Spelling.
4. In commonly-known lore, Spells are Magic Enigmas, cast by Gods, Wizards and Witches, characters associated with wisdom, intelligence and guile. Characters that are never 'arbitrary', but rather 'nice' (in the obsolete sense of the word). How many Corners hath the Earth? ABCD is a Key: The Door Deletes Memory. The Cube in which you sit is a Key. Who are you sitting there For?
5. The Spells (ie. words in the Dictionary and the Saurus) were made and then formalized by a God, Wizard or Witch. It is likely they contain niceties. Most people cast spells unwittingly. Mages cast them knowingly. There is no Fairy Tale, and no Fantasy, if there is no Spell of some kind. Spells are Elemental, and thus Particular. 'V' is a Key, reflecting 'Λ', and these dualities of the Sounds of El. Quintessence. The Blazing Star. Five is a Key.
6. The Lexicon might be a Dark Crystal of information in more metaphorical ways than one. The Enigmatic Crystal is perhaps partly broken down, or shattered. The cracks might be found in the division between French and German, or between English and Russian, or between the dialects of Khoe and Hebrew, between Fire and Water, and between Earth and Air. The cracks are how the light gets in [see the splintering of the geometric tongues reflected in the film Arrival]. The word 'crack' is the word 'church' in disguise (and this sort of fluid linguistic transformation - a liquid wordplay - is a Key to the Language of the Birds). The church is built upon, or within, a Rock. A small Rock is a Stone, or the Isopsephic Pebble of the Philosopher.
7. There are perhaps Key Ideas.
8. Key Ideas are likely to be those things that most Awed the Creator of the Enigma: that prompted the Creation of the Enigma in the First Place. And it is likely that these Keys are those used to unlock it - or to align it (or the Perceiver) so that it's Contents might be correctly perceived. Fine Optics requires Precision Geometry. Curves are Angelic Keys. Time Stops if you turn the Hourglass on it's side. Do not Cross the Beams. Do as I say, and not as I do. Do something.
9. The 'Manuscript', and in particular, 'The Illuminated Manuscript', is a Key. The 'Light' of the 'Illumination' is a literal and figurative wordplay, as is the closely related key, 'The Book' (and it's Pages, and it's Letters, it's Contents, and it's Index). Illuminated Letters. Letters of Light. The opposite of Light is Shade. The Shadow is a Key. The Gnomon, or Gnome, projects a Shadow in order to Measure the Geometry of the Light. You are made of Light, yet you are invisible in the Dark. Though you are of Light, you have Darkness in You. If the Enigma reflects you, or if you are of it's Pattern, then so it is with the Enigma. The Brightest Flame burns quickest. The Dark is that which is In Umber.
10. Words (spells) contain Alphanumeric Spectra (ie. Specter, the Digital Ghost in the Machine). That is, they contain enciphered Numbers (data points, or da'at pints). The Number is The Key. These numbers are implicit. They have not been 'assigned' to the Letters in the Alphabet, but rather, the Act of standardizing the Alphabetic Order conjures the Cyphers (Sefers, Serifs, Seraphs, Surfers) into existence. Either you acknowledge them or you do not. Either you see the potential that these numeric spectrum could have been intentionally constructed by act of letter choice, or you do not. The Tetractys is a Key.
11. The Spectrum of a Spell is the set of numbers extracted from a set of cyphers. I argue that those most obvious and intuitive cyphers are the ones that deserve the most investigation, and the more obfuscated and twisted the cipher mapping, the less likely investigation will lead to results (with the caveat of the Theory of Totality - that indeed, the Lexicon is the Monolith and a Deific Mind Map, with information to be extracted no matter the angle of incidence). In selecting cyphers to observe, we consider again the Mind of the Architect of the Enigma. What would interest IT? ... Prime numbers are Prime. They are Primary. They are the Singletons, the Black Holes, the Gods or Titans of numbers. Obviously, a Wizard will prefer them, or at least revere them. The Division of Odd and Even is a Key. Those Numbers that implicitly denote constructive Geometry, like the Triangular numbers and the Squares, and the Hexes, and the Stars, etc. will likely be leveraged as Elemental Tools. The Wizard in Dungeons & Dragons has a Spell-component Pouch (itself a metaphor). 'The Master' is a Key.
12. Knights of the Round Table. 12 Disciples. 12 Labours. 12 Hours in a half-day. Time is Key, and Counting Times is Key, and Counting is The Key. Adding is a Key, as is the Adder. The Total is a Key, as is the Summit. The Speech is a Key, as is the Peak of the Mound of Spice. The Oral History is itself it's own Key. Mythology and Legendarium, and Religious Icons are Keys. Old Canon catch-phrases are Inceptions. The Circle is a Key.
13. The word Lucky <--- Luce / Luke <--- Luccifer <-- Light-bearer <-- Illuminator
14. Accept Death, but do not dwell on it. Nonetheless, Death is a Key. Unlearn what you have Learned, but Remember all of it.
15. The Yin-Yang is a Key. Opposites Oppose, and Opposites Attract. As-above-so-below. If in doubt, Revolve. There will be Drama. There will be Trauma. There will be Dreams. There will be Drums. Find the Light in the Dark. Be the Light in the Dark - a Derk of the Light. The Torque of the Vortex. Speech is a Hurricane, if you are small enough. The Selfish Occultist Hides, while the Occultist Mentor Reveals by making a Show of Hiding. A Teacher shows what he or she Knows - but some would say that Knowledge cometh through Trial only.
16. Innuendo is Eternal. He or She that casts Spells is a Cunning Linguist. The Language Enigma is better understood when one sees that the Ocean of Language is Naughty Tickle. The Best Parts are Hidden, as are the Scariest ones.

2020.11.18 16:40 Loading-23 What I Want For Overwatch 2 and Overwatch in General

For Bizzconline I think they should show off 4 existing heroes new skins for Overwatch 2. I think they should also show 1 new hero. I think they should also reveal two more heroes' hero talents. I think they should also show another cinematic. I think they wouldn't have a playtest like last year because they would have to send it out to everyone because Blizzconline is free this year. During Blizzconline they should also show off the reworked Paris map or Horizon Lunar Colony map. Sometime before Overwatch 2 gets released they said they will add one more map and I hope this map is from the Stone by Stone short story featuring Zenyatta and Symetra. You could see that there is a new map in the home screen during the weekly challenge.
I think they should release Overwatch 2 on the same day Overwatch came out because of the anniversary event. I think they should rework PvP to be a 2/3/2 model. I think they should have a 2 tank, 3 damage, and 2 healer role queue because it would lower damage wait time. I know that Jeff said that they can't do it for Overwatch 1 because they would have to redesign every map but why not do it for Overwatch 2. We can assume that Overwatch 2 has been in development for at least 2 1/2 years. So they should at least of 5 heroes.
If we look at the release schedule of Overwatch it went like this:
Ana released 19 of July 2016 (Support) (Egyptian) (Female)
Eichenwalde released 1 September 2016 (Hybrid)
Sombra released 15 November 2016 (Damage) (Mexican) (Female)
Oasis released 3 January 2017 (Control)
Orisa released 21 March 2017 (Tank) (Omnic) (Numbanian)
Horizon Lunar Colony released 20 June 2017 (Assault)
Doomfist released 27 July 2017 (Damage) (African Numbanian) (Male)
Junkertown released 19 September 2017 (Escort)
Moira released 16 November 2017 (Support) (Irish) (Female)
Blizzard World released 23 January 2018 (Hybrid)
Brigitte released 20 March 2018 (Support) (Swedish) (Female)
Rialto released 3 May 2018 (Escort)
Wrecking Ball released 24 July 2018 (Tank) (Lunar)
Busan released 11 September 2018 (Control)
Ashe released 13 November 2018 (Damage) (American) (Female)
Paris released 19 February 2019 (Assault)
Baptiste released 19 March 2019 (Support) (French/Hatian) (Male)
Havana released 7 May 2019 (Escort)
Sigma released 13 August 2019 (Tank) (Dutch) (Male)
Echo released 14 April 2020 (Damage) (Omnic?)
Sojourn ??? (Canadian) (Female)
Rio de Janerio ???
Toronto (Push)
Gothenburg ???
Monte Carlo ???
P.S. I chose to not add all of the Workshop, Deathmatch, Lucioball, and Elimination because I don't hate myself. I also added all of their Nationalities because it might be a good way to see what ethnicities are still missing.
So it went Hero > Map > Hero
We have 8 Tanks, 17 DPS, and 7 Supports.
4 Omnics, 13 Females, 13 Males (Not including Animals)
9 People of Color (Not including Widowmaker or Sojourn)
It is disappointing that only 9 Overwatch heroes are POC out of 31 heroes. There should be more representation of different countries.
There are 5 Control Maps, 5 Assault Maps, 6 Escort Maps, 5 Hybrid Maps, 1 Capture The Flag Map ( I know that there are other ones but I am counting it just for that game mode), 4 Elimation Maps, and 2 Deathmatch Maps.
I think they should add 7 new heroes and 10 new maps.
Possible Heroes:
Sojourn (Damage)
Junkerqueen (Tank)
Dae-hyun (Support)
Mauga (Tank)
Sanjay (???)
Maximlian (Support?)
Someone Completely New (???)
Lynx 17 (Support)
Kace (Tank)
Tracers Omnic Friend (Support?)
Mysterious Null Sector Omnic (Tank)
Someone in Dead Lock Gang (???)
If you don't know who kade is look at Tracer comic 2 same as Tracers Omnic Friend
Possible New Maps:
Destroyed Swiss HQ (???)
Toronto (Push)
Rio de Janerio (Push?)
Monte Carlo (Push?)
Gothenburg (Push?)
I think the Swiss HQ would be interesting because it could be like Petra where walls could be destroyed.
I hope they have a lot of new cosmetics to unlock. For the hero missions I think that it would be interesting to have cosmetics only unlocked through the hero missions. I think it would be interesting to have a few heroes unlocked through the hero missions through credits. BUT I DON'T WANT MICROTRANSATIONS BLIZZARD OR A BATTLE PASS!
My questions:
If Overwatch 2 doesn't get released on the same day as Overwatch 1 how will the anniversary event work?
If they are reworking all hero's base skins then are they going to rework all common skins?
Sorry for writing a literal book but this is what was stuck in my brain. What do you guys think?

2020.11.01 22:41 CaptainRyuk How come even in crime-filled regions and groups it seems a pattern that light-skinned Latinos (particularly fair skin) behave better despite coming from screw up criminal dark skinned families? Esp females?Including both legit and illegal migrants? Like they are brainwashed to think white is GOOD?

I'm not trying to offend anyone. Sincerely I feel uncomfortable typing this and don't mean to be racist. But its seems like an ubiquitous pattern I noticed not just in America but my travels across to and fro Mexico during summer vacations as well as single trips where I visited different countries like El Salvador only once in my life. It seems to universal I even seen this pattern among migrants to other places other than the USA like Canada and Brazil......................
American studies revealed on American TV news and in political discussions as often seen on reddit is that Hispanics esp Mexicans have extremely high crime rates and these studies correlate it due to poverty. That the reason Mexicans and other Latinos have commit so much crime is no different than why the Deep South of America has so much violence and why black people make up the most gangsters, which is because of how rife poverty is among Hispanics in the same way blacks do so much robberies and other crimes because black people lived through generations of ghetto lifestyle as the result of most African Americans being on the bottom poor of the social class and how the redneck whites Deep South loves doing so much hate crimes because minorities are blamed for the wealth inequality in Alabama and other states.
The studies states its obvious because most upper class Latinos have no higher percentage of committing crimes than your average white American and even points out Latino immigration from countries with large whites coming in like Argentinans and Puerto Ricans even have much lower crime rates than even middle class educated America, on top of often being richer.
However reading these studies I notice one thing related to race and colorism is very neglected....... True most light-skinned Latin Americans are descendants of Spaniards who where the top ruling class of Central and South America for centuries and the former Hispanic colonies maintained la castas for generations as a model for society thus restricting wealth to Spaniards and mostly white Creoles and Castizos. Thus it should only be obvious your average light-skinned Latino immigrant would be middle class and in turn better educated and more behaved as typical of people in middle lass and above...............
But the pattern I notice studies don't take into account is that even among poor neighborhood filled with crime and lower social stratas like Morenos is that despite being cultures of poor and crime Light-skinned lower class Hispanics tend to commit far less crime and even attempt to put a show of proper manners and being educated a bit.
Personal experience example, I grew up with a Mexican family next door and a few Cubans also went to school. The Mexican family fit all the bad stereotypes of Hispanics such as starting violent fights, being drunk, pickpockets, etc but there was a very strange thing about this family. Most of the household 13 and above were dropouts and the family also already had some trouble because their younger kids neglected to go to school or were intentionally playing hooky...........
All except for their pale daughter who was so white she's even lighter skinned than most blue-eyed blondes of Irish ancestry at the school. I was friends with her and we still do meet up weekly to eat at a few local restaurants so I witnessed some firsthand things into Hispanic culture. While the matriarch didn't care about education for the younger and older children and allowed them to fail classes and later drop out allowing them to just stay at home chilling as teens or volunteer to work manual labor or pink collar jobs............................. My friend's mother was absolutely obsessed with not only sending her to school but was pushing her to excel at school. In addition where as she just let the rest of her children just stay at home and watch TV or play on the computer and didn't care what the older ones were doing even if they just went out the front door at night to gallivant in town or to work overtime.............. She paid for ballet lessons, was strict on teaching proper English (hell even forcing high class Peninsular Mexican dialect of Spanish), and a whole other bunch of things she was forcing upon my Latina friend growing up.
I later heard them talk in Spanish during middle school after I spent enough time to pick up on the language of the mother saying something along the lines "I'm so proud I have you a daughter who looks like a castiza and even whiter than a peninsulares! So I'm gonna make sure you have it easy in life!" and she was smiling when she said that while in private during a local gathering of the Hispanic community which I was allowed in despite being a gringo because of my close relationship to her family.
While like the stereotypical Latino mother, she never bothered with college for most of her kids and let them work in minimal wages or married the females off to other "proper men" (including one having a semi-arranged marriage with a young middle class migrant from Cuernavaco who fell hard for her youngest brown daughter), for my friend she took a loan to pay so she can attend a nearby university for 4 years. So I went to college alongside my Latina friend.
In addition among my Cuban classmates in high school, I notice the brown ones don't bother doing well at all in school and even did stuff like pickpocketing and other crimes....... While their siblings and cousins who attended the same school who had light skinned really did put max effort to avoid stealing from the Cafeteria or dressing like sluts and other petty bad deeds Hispanics are stereotyped as doing. Hell one of my Guatemalan classmate who was as light brown was prostituting herself outside of school to older men and even classmates who could come up with the cash. While despite coming from the same social strata as she did, I had another acquaintance from the same country but was olive skinned similar to Greeks who was aggressive about defending her virginity. They were both cousins and their parents were pretty irresponsible but the light skinned one refuse to do anything to stain herself because she was "born fortunate".
Looking at the classmates I had esp the Guatemalan cousins, it seems as though even in lower class Latinos and ghettos full of crimes like the Cuban one I lived 5 miles away from, Hispanics seemed to have it programmed into their minds that if they have dark complexion, they shouldn't bother acting like good citizens like they go "fuck it!" and just do whatever they want to get their desires be it shoplifting candy bars, stealing a computer from the school by going in at night and lockpicking the doors (not kidding this literally happened), paying the sexy classmate for a quick one night stand, and so on. While the Hispanics born with light skinned are brainwashed into believing that they should act like Caballeros or model their conduct after the Holy Virgin Mary.
All DESPITE COMING FROM THE SAME DESPITE LOWER CLASS in POVERTY and living in the same ghettos full of crime and violence!
I mean with my Latina friend, even she is expected to be the Matriarch of the family after her mother dies despite being the Middle Child. Sure she's the only educated one with now having a PhD in economics but the whole reason she was able to go to college was because her mom was willing to pay student loans because she saw my friend as a gift from God for looking more like Maria Felix than like Yalitza Aparicio.
Now this question is not restricted to just the USA or even Mexico. When I went to Venezuela I noticed a similar pattern where even in poor neighborhoods, light skinned females tended to dress more formal than dark skinned girls from the same families. I notice more store owners were olive like Greeks while the people hauling the shipments were their darker skinned relatives, even direct brothers.
And this was actually a very safe neighborhood that even I a foreign WASPy American was met with frienliness from the poor locals. In my times in Canada, I notice this same exact pattern of light skinned people acting better behaved and even taking it upon themselves to discipline their relatives from the same family who were brown as the stereotype goes and did minor vandalism.
Am I the only one noticing this pattern? I mean so much is made out in the media and academic studies that the reason for Hispanic crime rates and Mexicans in particular doing very stupid foul behaviors like urinating at an alley or spitting on the floor in a supermarket is because of coming from an impoverished background and lifestyle.
But what I notice seems t be like there is a very big colorism element to this!
Why does it seem this way across Latin American cultures? Like how my Latina friend suddenly get the idea that since they are light, they must behave properly in a manner worthy of Holy Mary? While people with dark skin esp Hispanic males seem to be scripted into believing that they go ahead and act like criminals and not bother trying to behave like model citizens?
Again I don't mean any offense and I admit I did use hyperbole in my examples. But after meeting my Latina friend again this month and seeing her kids get special treatment at the restaurant over other stereotypically brown Latinos while we were eating, I realized this pattern despite not even noticing in my almost 20 years of friendship with her and am really curious about it!
Does Latino culture really brainwash people into believing their skin color should reflect their behavior? If it helps, when I was in in Brazil which technically is Latino, I noticed Brazilians as rigid about skin color influencing behavior as what I seen with Cubans and Mexicans and in Venezuela and other South American trips!
(Side question: I know racism exists in Brazil and can be bad at times but why isn't it colorism as rigid or at least as pronounced as it seems to be in Mexico and other Hispanic groups?)

2020.11.01 22:41 CaptainRyuk How come even in crime-filled regions and groups it seems a pattern that light-skinned Latinos (particularly fair skin) behave better despite coming from screw up criminal dark skinned families? Esp females?Including both legit and illegal migrants? Like they are brainwashed to think white is GOOD?

I'm not trying to offend anyone. Sincerely I feel uncomfortable typing this and don't mean to be racist. But its seems like an ubiquitous pattern I noticed not just in America but my travels across to and fro Mexico during summer vacations as well as single trips where I visited different countries like El Salvador only once in my life. It seems to universal I even seen this pattern among migrants to other places other than the USA like Canada and Brazil......................
American studies revealed on American TV news and in political discussions as often seen on reddit is that Hispanics esp Mexicans have extremely high crime rates and these studies correlate it due to poverty. That the reason Mexicans and other Latinos have commit so much crime is no different than why the Deep South of America has so much violence and why black people make up the most gangsters, which is because of how rife poverty is among Hispanics in the same way blacks do so much robberies and other crimes because black people lived through generations of ghetto lifestyle as the result of most African Americans being on the bottom poor of the social class and how the redneck whites Deep South loves doing so much hate crimes because minorities are blamed for the wealth inequality in Alabama and other states.
The studies states its obvious because most upper class Latinos have no higher percentage of committing crimes than your average white American and even points out Latino immigration from countries with large whites coming in like Argentinans and Puerto Ricans even have much lower crime rates than even middle class educated America, on top of often being richer.
However reading these studies I notice one thing related to race and colorism is very neglected....... True most light-skinned Latin Americans are descendants of Spaniards who where the top ruling class of Central and South America for centuries and the former Hispanic colonies maintained la castas for generations as a model for society thus restricting wealth to Spaniards and mostly white Creoles and Castizos. Thus it should only be obvious your average light-skinned Latino immigrant would be middle class and in turn better educated and more behaved as typical of people in middle lass and above...............
But the pattern I notice studies don't take into account is that even among poor neighborhood filled with crime and lower social stratas like Morenos is that despite being cultures of poor and crime Light-skinned lower class Hispanics tend to commit far less crime and even attempt to put a show of proper manners and being educated a bit.
Personal experience example, I grew up with a Mexican family next door and a few Cubans also went to school. The Mexican family fit all the bad stereotypes of Hispanics such as starting violent fights, being drunk, pickpockets, etc but there was a very strange thing about this family. Most of the household 13 and above were dropouts and the family also already had some trouble because their younger kids neglected to go to school or were intentionally playing hooky...........
All except for their pale daughter who was so white she's even lighter skinned than most blue-eyed blondes of Irish ancestry at the school. I was friends with her and we still do meet up weekly to eat at a few local restaurants so I witnessed some firsthand things into Hispanic culture. While the matriarch didn't care about education for the younger and older children and allowed them to fail classes and later drop out allowing them to just stay at home chilling as teens or volunteer to work manual labor or pink collar jobs............................. My friend's mother was absolutely obsessed with not only sending her to school but was pushing her to excel at school. In addition where as she just let the rest of her children just stay at home and watch TV or play on the computer and didn't care what the older ones were doing even if they just went out the front door at night to gallivant in town or to work overtime.............. She paid for ballet lessons, was strict on teaching proper English (hell even forcing high class Peninsular Mexican dialect of Spanish), and a whole other bunch of things she was forcing upon my Latina friend growing up.
I later heard them talk in Spanish during middle school after I spent enough time to pick up on the language of the mother saying something along the lines "I'm so proud I have you a daughter who looks like a castiza and even whiter than a peninsulares! So I'm gonna make sure you have it easy in life!" and she was smiling when she said that while in private during a local gathering of the Hispanic community which I was allowed in despite being a gringo because of my close relationship to her family.
While like the stereotypical Latino mother, she never bothered with college for most of her kids and let them work in minimal wages or married the females off to other "proper men" (including one having a semi-arranged marriage with a young middle class migrant from Cuernavaco who fell hard for her youngest brown daughter), for my friend she took a loan to pay so she can attend a nearby university for 4 years. So I went to college alongside my Latina friend.
In addition among my Cuban classmates in high school, I notice the brown ones don't bother doing well at all in school and even did stuff like pickpocketing and other crimes....... While their siblings and cousins who attended the same school who had light skinned really did put max effort to avoid stealing from the Cafeteria or dressing like sluts and other petty bad deeds Hispanics are stereotyped as doing. Hell one of my Guatemalan classmate who was as light brown was prostituting herself outside of school to older men and even classmates who could come up with the cash. While despite coming from the same social strata as she did, I had another acquaintance from the same country but was olive skinned similar to Greeks who was aggressive about defending her virginity. They were both cousins and their parents were pretty irresponsible but the light skinned one refuse to do anything to stain herself because she was "born fortunate".
Looking at the classmates I had esp the Guatemalan cousins, it seems as though even in lower class Latinos and ghettos full of crimes like the Cuban one I lived 5 miles away from, Hispanics seemed to have it programmed into their minds that if they have dark complexion, they shouldn't bother acting like good citizens like they go "fuck it!" and just do whatever they want to get their desires be it shoplifting candy bars, stealing a computer from the school by going in at night and lockpicking the doors (not kidding this literally happened), paying the sexy classmate for a quick one night stand, and so on. While the Hispanics born with light skinned are brainwashed into believing that they should act like Caballeros or model their conduct after the Holy Virgin Mary.
All DESPITE COMING FROM THE SAME DESPITE LOWER CLASS in POVERTY and living in the same ghettos full of crime and violence!
I mean with my Latina friend, even she is expected to be the Matriarch of the family after her mother dies despite being the Middle Child. Sure she's the only educated one with now having a PhD in economics but the whole reason she was able to go to college was because her mom was willing to pay student loans because she saw my friend as a gift from God for looking more like Maria Felix than like Yalitza Aparicio.
Now this question is not restricted to just the USA or even Mexico. When I went to Venezuela I noticed a similar pattern where even in poor neighborhoods, light skinned females tended to dress more formal than dark skinned girls from the same families. I notice more store owners were olive like Greeks while the people hauling the shipments were their darker skinned relatives, even direct brothers.
And this was actually a very safe neighborhood that even I a foreign WASPy American was met with frienliness from the poor locals. In my times in Canada, I notice this same exact pattern of light skinned people acting better behaved and even taking it upon themselves to discipline their relatives from the same family who were brown as the stereotype goes and did minor vandalism.
Am I the only one noticing this pattern? I mean so much is made out in the media and academic studies that the reason for Hispanic crime rates and Mexicans in particular doing very stupid foul behaviors like urinating at an alley or spitting on the floor in a supermarket is because of coming from an impoverished background and lifestyle.
But what I notice seems t be like there is a very big colorism element to this!
Why does it seem this way across Latin American cultures? Like how my Latina friend suddenly get the idea that since they are light, they must behave properly in a manner worthy of Holy Mary? While people with dark skin esp Hispanic males seem to be scripted into believing that they go ahead and act like criminals and not bother trying to behave like model citizens?
Again I don't mean any offense and I admit I did use hyperbole in my examples.

Sure she's the only educated one with now having a PhD in economics but the whole reason she was able to go to college was because her mom was willing to pay student loans because she saw my friend as a gift from God for looking more like Maria Felix than like Yalitza Aparicio.
Now this question is not restricted to just the USA or even Mexico. When I went to Venezuela I noticed a similar pattern where even in poor neighborhoods, light skinned females tended to dress more formal than dark skinned girls from the same families. I notice more store owners were olive like Greeks while the people hauling the shipments were their darker skinned relatives, even direct brothers.
And this was actually a very safe neighborhood that even I a foreign WASPy American was met with frienliness from the poor locals. In my times in Canada, I notice this same exact pattern of light skinned people acting better behaved and even taking it upon themselves to discipline their relatives from the same family who were brown as the stereotype goes and did minor vandalism.
Am I the only one noticing this pattern? I mean so much is made out in the media and academic studies that the reason for Hispanic crime rates and Mexicans in particular doing very stupid foul behaviors like urinating at an alley or spitting on the floor in a supermarket is because of coming from an impoverished background and lifestyle.
But what I notice seems t be like there is a very big colorism element to this!
Why does it seem this way across Latin American cultures? Like how my Latina friend suddenly get the idea that since they are light, they must behave properly in a manner worthy of Holy Mary? While people with dark skin esp Hispanic males seem to be scripted into believing that they go ahead and act like criminals and not bother trying to behave like model citizens?
Again I don't mean any offense and I admit I did use hyperbole in my examples. But after meeting my Latina friend again this month and seeing her kids get special treatment at the restaurant over other stereotypically brown Latinos while we were eating, I realized this pattern despite not even noticing in my almost 20 years of friendship with her and am really curious about it!
Does Latino culture really brainwash people into believing their skin color should reflect their behavior? If it helps, when I was in in Brazil which technically is Latino, I noticed Brazilians as rigid about skin color influencing behavior as what I seen with Cubans and Mexicans and in Venezuela and other South American trips!
(Side question: I know racism exists in Brazil and can be bad at times but why isn't it colorism as rigid or at least as pronounced as it seems to be in Mexico and other Hispanic groups?)

2020.11.01 22:40 CaptainRyuk How come even in crime-filled regions and groups it seems a pattern that light-skinned Latinos (particularly fair skin) behave better despite coming from screw up criminal dark skinned families? Esp females?Including both legit and illegal migrants? Like they are brainwashed to think white is GOOD?

I'm not trying to offend anyone. Sincerely I feel uncomfortable typing this and don't mean to be racist. But its seems like an ubiquitous pattern I noticed not just in America but my travels across to and fro Mexico during summer vacations as well as single trips where I visited different countries like El Salvador only once in my life. It seems to universal I even seen this pattern among migrants to other places other than the USA like Canada and Brazil......................
American studies revealed on American TV news and in political discussions as often seen on reddit is that Hispanics esp Mexicans have extremely high crime rates and these studies correlate it due to poverty. That the reason Mexicans and other Latinos have commit so much crime is no different than why the Deep South of America has so much violence and why black people make up the most gangsters, which is because of how rife poverty is among Hispanics in the same way blacks do so much robberies and other crimes because black people lived through generations of ghetto lifestyle as the result of most African Americans being on the bottom poor of the social class and how the redneck whites Deep South loves doing so much hate crimes because minorities are blamed for the wealth inequality in Alabama and other states.
The studies states its obvious because most upper class Latinos have no higher percentage of committing crimes than your average white American and even points out Latino immigration from countries with large whites coming in like Argentinans and Puerto Ricans even have much lower crime rates than even middle class educated America, on top of often being richer.
However reading these studies I notice one thing related to race and colorism is very neglected....... True most light-skinned Latin Americans are descendants of Spaniards who where the top ruling class of Central and South America for centuries and the former Hispanic colonies maintained la castas for generations as a model for society thus restricting wealth to Spaniards and mostly white Creoles and Castizos. Thus it should only be obvious your average light-skinned Latino immigrant would be middle class and in turn better educated and more behaved as typical of people in middle lass and above...............
But the pattern I notice studies don't take into account is that even among poor neighborhood filled with crime and lower social stratas like Morenos is that despite being cultures of poor and crime Light-skinned lower class Hispanics tend to commit far less crime and even attempt to put a show of proper manners and being educated a bit.
Personal experience example, I grew up with a Mexican family next door and a few Cubans also went to school. The Mexican family fit all the bad stereotypes of Hispanics such as starting violent fights, being drunk, pickpockets, etc but there was a very strange thing about this family. Most of the household 13 and above were dropouts and the family also already had some trouble because their younger kids neglected to go to school or were intentionally playing hooky...........
All except for their pale daughter who was so white she's even lighter skinned than most blue-eyed blondes of Irish ancestry at the school. I was friends with her and we still do meet up weekly to eat at a few local restaurants so I witnessed some firsthand things into Hispanic culture. While the matriarch didn't care about education for the younger and older children and allowed them to fail classes and later drop out allowing them to just stay at home chilling as teens or volunteer to work manual labor or pink collar jobs............................. My friend's mother was absolutely obsessed with not only sending her to school but was pushing her to excel at school. In addition where as she just let the rest of her children just stay at home and watch TV or play on the computer and didn't care what the older ones were doing even if they just went out the front door at night to gallivant in town or to work overtime.............. She paid for ballet lessons, was strict on teaching proper English (hell even forcing high class Peninsular Mexican dialect of Spanish), and a whole other bunch of things she was forcing upon my Latina friend growing up.
I later heard them talk in Spanish during middle school after I spent enough time to pick up on the language of the mother saying something along the lines "I'm so proud I have you a daughter who looks like a castiza and even whiter than a peninsulares! So I'm gonna make sure you have it easy in life!" and she was smiling when she said that while in private during a local gathering of the Hispanic community which I was allowed in despite being a gringo because of my close relationship to her family.
While like the stereotypical Latino mother, she never bothered with college for most of her kids and let them work in minimal wages or married the females off to other "proper men" (including one having a semi-arranged marriage with a young middle class migrant from Cuernavaco who fell hard for her youngest brown daughter), for my friend she took a loan to pay so she can attend a nearby university for 4 years. So I went to college alongside my Latina friend.
In addition among my Cuban classmates in high school, I notice the brown ones don't bother doing well at all in school and even did stuff like pickpocketing and other crimes....... While their siblings and cousins who attended the same school who had light skinned really did put max effort to avoid stealing from the Cafeteria or dressing like sluts and other petty bad deeds Hispanics are stereotyped as doing. Hell one of my Guatemalan classmate who was as light brown was prostituting herself outside of school to older men and even classmates who could come up with the cash. While despite coming from the same social strata as she did, I had another acquaintance from the same country but was olive skinned similar to Greeks who was aggressive about defending her virginity. They were both cousins and their parents were pretty irresponsible but the light skinned one refuse to do anything to stain herself because she was "born fortunate".
Looking at the classmates I had esp the Guatemalan cousins, it seems as though even in lower class Latinos and ghettos full of crimes like the Cuban one I lived 5 miles away from, Hispanics seemed to have it programmed into their minds that if they have dark complexion, they shouldn't bother acting like good citizens like they go "fuck it!" and just do whatever they want to get their desires be it shoplifting candy bars, stealing a computer from the school by going in at night and lockpicking the doors (not kidding this literally happened), paying the sexy classmate for a quick one night stand, and so on. While the Hispanics born with light skinned are brainwashed into believing that they should act like Caballeros or model their conduct after the Holy Virgin Mary.
All DESPITE COMING FROM THE SAME DESPITE LOWER CLASS in POVERTY and living in the same ghettos full of crime and violence!
I mean with my Latina friend, even she is expected to be the Matriarch of the family after her mother dies despite being the Middle Child.

Ending
I have had a lot of time to reflect on my entire career, from championship glory to the most epic of battles. But even after I’ve had it all, there was still one thing missing, the one thing that defined me as an icon: The Streak. I came to realise that after my defeat to Brock Lesnar, the Deadman was never the same, a watered-down version of a once-mighty warrior. So with the power of Time at my hands, I went back to the day the Streak ended, at WrestleMania, and changed my fate by keeping Lesnar down for the three count. I immediately retired afterwards, so this ended up being my last ride, but I managed to leave a legacy behind, and a simple message that if anyone tries to step up to the Deadman, you will...REST...IN...PEACE!

2020.10.18 23:52 TheMightyWill [TOMT][BOOK] A stripper kills a man and is put on death row. Title is The ___ Room

I thought the title was The Red Room. But when I googled the title it didn't come up.
I know it's The *adjective* Room though, which references the place she stripped at.

The story isn't told in chronological order. It starts with the woman in prison before jumping to different parts of her life to paint the picture of how she got there. There are a lot of characters who are initially just mentioned in passing (and it's written like you're supposed to know who they are) but it isn't until later on you find out why they're important to the story.

A lot of the book is written from other people's perspectives.
Now onto what I remember:
  1. I forgot who she killed, but I'm pretty sure it was either an abusive ex or a stalker who kept buying her gifts?
  2. When the MC was a young child, she met an addict on a bus who tried to buy off her (forgot what exactly. Dope I think?). She fronted for a little bit and the addict used the rubber on the sole of his shoes to write his number down on the wall to contact him the next time she had a reup.
  3. In her early teens, the MC became enamored with a slightly older teenager. She had black hair and wore punk clothing. The last thing I remember about her character was that she became a dope fiend.
  4. The MC was sent to an all woman's prison. Among the people she was sent to prison with, was a trans-woman and a pregnant teenager. The teenager ended up giving birth shortly after they arrived.
  5. There was also a former leg model who liked to talk a lot.
  6. There was a man who committed some murders but managed to avoid prison. Until he confessed to a woman (I think she was the leg model from 5?) he was fucking about those crimes during a pillow talking sesh. He also liked to masturbate with Irish Spring soap.
  7. I'm pretty sure it was the above man, but there was a joke he liked to tell about a man who gets stood up at a date. Turns out that joke was actually a true story and the man was himself.
  8. A former prison guard (the same guy as 6 and 7???) became obsessed with a female inmate and would have her cut his hair to get close to her. They ended up fucking once, and she used that experience to blackmail him.
  9. There was a not-so-bright man who was being financially taken advantage of by a former convict. She used the metaphor of reeling in a fishing rod to describe the process.

I never finished the book but have always wanted to. Which is why I'm making this post.

2020.10.14 17:31 TheySayiiLackFinesse Why so many female legends Respawn?

Although nothing it officially confirmed, the talk is the new Legend Horizon is a female. Now I am not annoyed by the fact she is a female but the fact the this is the 3rd female legend we had in a row slightly disappoints me. The last time we had a male legend was Crypto. (Not including Revenant because he is a robot.) And what had been leaked and shown about Horizon she does not look like a person the would take part in the bloody sport named the Apex Games. I really thought Horizon/ Valk was going to be a dude along with Rampart but noooo Respawn is shoving another female legend down our throats. I really hope Horiozon’s legendary skins look dope a’f because looking at her normal model does not look like she belongs in the Apex Games. Respawn I think myself and others in the community want more fierce looking and intimidating legends like Wraith,Bangalore, Caustic with a cool backstory. Not soft spoken Irish girl looking for clues.

2020.10.09 11:06 ConstantHeadwreck CHX - A fitting conclusion to 3 years of headwreck

Brief backstory for context: I'm MTF, 5.5 years post-everything bar SRS. Been legally-female and fully socially-transitioned for the past 5 years, got my GRC as far back as 2015.
Fast-forward (ha!) to Oct 2020 and only now have I finally received my referral letter for SRS from CHX 11 weeks after my sign-off meeting with Barrett. Which had followed 5 years of gatekeeping (2 years in my native Irish health system and the following 3.5 years in CHX's never-never land) and no less than 8 separate psychs assessing me over that time for SRS, each of whom separately reached a unanimous decision in favour of my being allowed to have the surgery I desperately need.
For the record, I am and have been in the optimum condition to meet all their requirements. I'm slim, physically and mentally 100%, never smoked or drank or did drugs, my BMI is perfect, I've been on HRT more than 4 years without any issues. In other words, there's no good reason why after spending 2 years coming through every hurdle in the Irish system I should have had to face another 3.5 years (and counting) facing the same hurdles (but far worse) all over again in the British system.
But this is the way the brainless NHS model works, where they treat you as if you started transitioning 5 minutes ago upon being referred to them instead of making a judgement on each case's individual merits. Which I'm convinced is a big part of the reason why the waiting lists are so insanely-long.
Dr Barrett had advised me during my meeting with him that it would take "about a week" to issue the referral letter. NHS guidelines so I'm told specify that it takes a maximum of 2 weeks before such a letter is issued.
However it took them 11 weeks between my being told by Barrett I was finally being referred to when they actually sent this referral to the National Referral Support Service in Lincoln (who to their credit passed it on to Parkside the same day they received it). And even that was only after I'd forced CHX's hand by submitting an SAR (Subject Access Request) thanks to a thoughtful heads-up I'd received from a member of this sub who had likewise been left in limbo waiting for months for her referral letter.
Any of us who know what its like to have to wait for healthcare, be it hormones or surgery, will know the feeling where one day feels like a month. So the 3 years I've been fucked around by CHX have felt more like 30 years. However, as much as I have come to have the lowest possible expectations of them, having gotten on okay with him at the meeting, I was willing to take Barrett at his word and expect that I might receive my referral and finally be free of his hellhole clinic and "care pathway" (oh the irony) at last.
But no. After 8 weeks of waiting and emailing them to enquire where the letter was, finally they sent it to me. Little did I know they would then sit on the letter for a further 3 pointless weeks before sending it to the NGDRSS in Lincoln.
A simple one-page letter. Eleven WEEKS.
This was my final straw. After bottling it up all this time I erupted at the admin department with a volley of the most abusive words I could muster, 5 years of frustration tumbling out.
And that was that, or so I thought.
But lo and behold, a mere 3 weeks later I receive a letter from Barrett amounting to a written warning that I may not be allowed back, on account of a couple of emails I sent to CHX after remaining polite and patient for 3.5 years of my life that I'll never get back. The idea that I, after the most frustrating 3.5 years possible and with no longer any need to have anything to do with the place, might want to go back to CHX at some or any point, I find totally hilarious. (My HRT is administered under the Irish GIC and has nothing to do with Barrett or CHX).
But this exchange revealed something interesting to me. CHX, who ordinarily take months or years to do anything, will spring into action remarkably quickly when you have a go at them. Just a heads-up to anyone waiting for anything from them - a roasting will rouse them from their slumber pretty fucking fast.
To conclude, I've replied to Barrett with a letter that outlines the extent to which the system is broken and detailing my grievances regarding all my experiences at CHX to date, and I've informed him for what it's worth that in all my transition, no matter has caused me more upset, frustration and difficulty than dealing with that hapless circus he presides over.
Now to wait for the next step of this endless road...
Thanks for reading, needed to vent among people who can understand what I'm going through with this. None of my friends or family are in a position to understand any of this so I never discuss it outside of this sub x

2020.10.08 08:55 StevenStevens43 The great british isolation

The great british isolation
The fight for Northern Gaul:
In this article, i am going to investigate yet more of Geoffrey of Monmouth's claims, and criticisms against him, whilst comparing them to contemporary history.
The first few of his claims i have already covered in the previous article "the fight for Northern Gaul", so one should read that article before coming back to read this one.
I will leave the link below.
The fight for Northern Gaul <<<<< Link for article.
Link for photo
Roman Gaul
Dionotus:
And the claim in quote below, regards to Dionotus and Caradocus i already covered in previous article, so will not be re-covering in this article.
Dionotus
Dionotus was a legendary king of Cornwall in Geoffrey of Monmouth's Historia regum Britanniae, an account of the rulers of Britain based on ancient Welsh sources and disputed by many historians. Dionotus succeeding his brother Caradocus, and was regent of Britain during the campaigns in Gaul of Emperor Magnus Maximus.
Seventy two thousand women:
So i will begin with the first claim i did not cover in previous article.
And it is a "sensational" claim.
I can understand why a modern day historian and scholar could dismiss it as nonsense, unlikely, improbable, using modern day standards, without doing any farther research on the matter.
Dionotus
Nothing is said of Dionotus until he became king under Maximus. He is first mentioned when Conan Meriadoc, king of Brittany sends a request to Britain for Briton women to help populate his country. Dionotus, being extremely noble and powerful, accepted the request and sent seventy-two thousand women to Gaul. The ships, however, became lost at sea and most of the women died or were captured by barbarians.
Nath I mac:
Before i go any farther, i will begin with an Irish high king named Nath I mac, that is said to have died in the Alps region after being struck by lightening.
Nath I mac
Nath Í, also known as Dathí, son of Fiachrae, son of Eochaid Mugmedon, was a semi-historical Irish king of the 5th century, the father of the likely-historical king Ailill Molt and the ancestor of the Uí Fiachrach dynasties of early medieval Connacht. His mother was Béḃinn. According to legend, he was a High King of Ireland, and died after being struck by lightning while on an expedition to the Alps.
Link for photo
Death of Nath I mac
Elpa:
Now what i find incredibally amusing, is that critics of Irish legend, try to make out that Nath I mac's death is too similar to his predecessor's death "Niall of the nine hostages", to be believable.
However, in order to draw any type of actual similarity, they first have to just naturally assume that the Irish keep getting mixed up with Elpa and Alba.
Therefore Nath I actually died in Alba, according to critics.
History
O'Rahilly and Francis J. Byrne observe out that Nath Í's death-tale is modelled on that of Niall of the Nine Hostages,[6]:213–215 [2]:78 and as with Niall, the early Irish name for Britain, Alba, may have been confused with Elpa, the Alps.[1]
Arrow/lightening strike:
They also have to just naturally assume that lightening strike is euhemerical for arrow strike, as Niall actually was struck by an arrow.
Death
the tale then has Niall appearing before an assembly of Pictish bards in Scotland, where he is killed by an arrow shot by Eochaid from the other side of the valley.
Alba:
Now what is more amusing, is that to ridicule the death of Niall, they sewed the exact same seed, suggesting that the Irish had again gotten confused with Alba and Elpa, aswell as forgetting Britain was once under Roman rule, making Nialls death in the Alps, instead of Alba.
But in actual fact, it is the modern day scholars and historians that are assuming and over speculating too much, to the point they are almost making it up.
They are forgetting that southern britain was Roman Gaul.
But Northern Britain was Alba.
And the Irish would know this.
Therefore when they say Alba, they likely mean Alba.
And when they say the Alps, they likely mean the Alps.
Death
Byrne suggests that Niall's death took place during a raid on Roman Britain. Irish tradition had forgotten that the Romans once ruled Britain, and relocated his remembered confrontations with the Empire to continental Europe, with Alba, the ancient name for Britain, being confused with Elpa, the Alps,
The Bora:
Though it would make sense that in actual fact Niall did die whilst on a european excursion, as right around the time of Niall's alleged death, there was in fact a war fought on european mainland between a Roman usurper and the Roman empire, and Eugenius the usurper was a dead cert to defeat Theodosius I.
However it is written in records that Eugene's forces were hit by a natural phenomena in the shape of the Bora, which is a major storm.
However this happened in what would be today Croatia, not the Alps.
So it is possible though, that Irish historians did indeed make an error.
But it would be more likely caused by quite simply getting Niall mixed up with Nath.
It is unlikely it would be due to getting mixed up with the name Alba.
383-395)
The next day, the battle began again and Theodosius's forces were aided by a natural phenomenon known as the Bora), which produces cyclonic winds.[27] The Bora blew directly against the forces of Eugenius and disrupted the line.
Link for photo#/media/File:Nin_(bura).jpg)
The Bora
Irish:
Albion was originally the Celtic Gaelic name for the whole of Britain, until latinasation, but the word survived in Irish Gaelic and became the Irish word for Scotland.
And when Caledonia seperated from Northern Gaul, Alba pertained only to Northern Albion from that point on.
To this day, Gaels still refer to Scotland as Alba.
So to suggest the Irish do not know the difference between Alba and the Alps, is simply mediocre.
Etymology
The Common Brittonic name for the island, Hellenised as Albíōn (Ἀλβίων)[6] and Latinised as Albiōn (genitive Albionis), derives from the Proto-Celtic nasal stem *Albi̯iū (oblique *Albiion-) and survived in Old Irish as Albu (genitive Albann). The name originally referred to Britain as a whole, but was later restricted to Caledonia (giving the modern Scottish Gaelic name for Scotland: Alba).

Honorius:
Now that i have got my point across, that even Irish legends attribute something happening in the Alpine region during this period, i shall move on to the Roman emperor Honorius.
Honorious)
Flavius Honorius (9 September 384 – 15 August 423) was Roman emperor from 393 to 423. He was the younger son of emperor Theodosius I and his first wife Aelia Flaccilla, and brother of Arcadius, who ruled the eastern half of the empire from 395, when their father died, until his death in 408. In 410, during Honorius's reign over the western Roman Empire, Rome was sacked) for the first time in almost 800 years.[2]#cite_note-2)

Now even in contemporary history, serious war has broken out all over Gaul and Italy, including the Alpine region.
Though honorius is 26 years old by now.
Defence of Italy#Stilicho_and_the_defense_of_Italy)
The next crisis was the Visigothic invasion of Italy in 402 under the formidable command of their king, Alaric. Stilicho was absent in Raetia in the latter months of 401, when Alaric, who was also the Eastern Empire's magister militum in Illyricum, suddenly marched with a large army through the Julian Alps and entered Italy.[12]#cite_note-12)

Honorious and his associates
Britain was isolated:
By 406 AD Rome was close to collapse, and Britain was isolated.
The Roman garrisons in Britain were called back to defend Rome, and the indigenous Celtic men of Britain and Ireland were following directly behind them.
Defence of Italy#Stilicho_and_the_defense_of_Italy)
.[9]#cite_note-Bury,_pg._110-9) Then, in 405/6, a tribal confedration, composed of Suevians, Vandals, Alans and Goths crossed the frozen Rhine and invaded Gaul.
The situation in Britain was even more difficult. The British provinces were isolated,
Foreign Aid:
Citizens still living in Britain required "foreign aid".
They received this up until 410 AD, when Honorius decided to cut his losses with Britain, and declared Britain no longer part of the Roman empire.
Defence of Italy#Stilicho_and_the_defense_of_Italy)
[14]#citenote-Bury,_pg._111-14) By 410, Britain was effectively told to look after its own affairs and expect no aid from Rome.[[15]](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Honorius(emperor)#cite_note-15)

End of Roman rule 410 AD
Arian:
The situation was so bad, that even Honorius's Arian father in law was onside with the overthrow attempt.
Defence of Italy#Stilicho_and_the_defense_of_Italy)
He convinced the emperor that his Arian father-in-law was conspiring with the barbarians to overthrow him.[19]#cite_note-19)
Famine:
Due to the effects of the war, even Rome was on the verge of a famine.
Perhaps the poor pigeons and chickens that were in that photo, were sadly being coaxed by Honorius and his associates ending up on his golden plate.
Gallic descent:
Whilst no names are mentioned, all the nobility of Gallic descent are in Gaul along with the Goths, vandals, and the rest.
Irish, Scottish, Cornish and Welsh nobles, at this point in history, are also very very much Gallic.
Erosion of wesstern empire#Constantius_and_the_beginning_of_erosion_of_the_Western_Empire)
Gaul was again a source of troubles for Honorius: just after Constantius's troops had returned to Italy, Jovinus revolted in northern Gaul, with the support of Alans, Burgundians, and the nobility of Gallic descent.[30]#cite_note-30)
Barbarians:
Unfortunately, whilst all the men were away sacking Rome in 410 AD, opportunists were taking advantage of Britain having no army, and began raiding Britain, were no doubt the females were raped and pillaged.
Sack of rome#Sack_of_Rome)
The year 410 also saw Honorius reply to a British plea for assistance against local barbarian incursions,
Tales:
During this period there are plenty other tales consistant with men dreaming of women/angels, and women getting lost in sea adventures and ending up being raped.
Unfortunately, it was the reality of the times.
There probably would have indeed been many women fleeing Britain and attempting to get to the locations of their husbands.
There would have also been many sex deprived men looking for mates.
As much as that is hard for the modern historian and scholar to grasp.
Dionotus
A passing mention is made in the Historia regum Britanniae to Conan Meriadoc being madly in love with his daughter, Ursula, which reflects the ninth century legend of Saint Ursula. According to the legend, Dionotus (her father, said to be king of Dumnonia) is asked her hand in marriage by Conan Meriadoc, the pagan governor of Armorica. After obtaining a three-year delay, she was given as companions ten young women, each of which had a thousand virgin handmaidens; they embarked in eleven ships and sailed for three years, but when the time came for her marriage, the ships were miraculously carried by a gale first to Cologne, then Basle and on to Rome before returning to Cologne where they were killed by Huns.[1]

Honorio
Romano-Britons:
And regarldess of the truth of the tales, Brittany was indeed the centre of a Romano-British migration away from Britain.
Immigration from Britain
The history behind such an establishment is unclear, but medieval Breton, Angevin and Welsh sources connect it to a figure known as Conan Meriadoc. Welsh literary sources assert that Conan came to Armorica on

2020.09.30 17:22 xblood_raven Orion Trilogy-a Collection of Intriguing Information

We're all hyped for the upcoming Wood Elf dlc and so, I decided to read through the Orion trilogy and see what I could find within it (there will be numbers of 1-3 which states what book it is from-1.Vaults of Winter-2012, 2.Tears of Isha-2013, 3.Council of Beasts-2014). I will avoid spoilers and will simply focus on quotes (and other relevant information) and what they could be.
Brúidd (The Council of Beasts)-the original Lords of Athel Loren, Brúid in Irish means animal and sometimes brute or beast. Appear in one battle and so, could be a collection of spirits that a Wood Elf faction could collect to help them in battle.
1.Handmaidens of Ariel-“The Handmaidens of Ariel are female Elfish mages among the ranks of the Wood Elves. They are said to be more powerful than their male kin due to their ties to Ariel and her unique bond to Athel Loren.” Appear in the novels with healing magic and wings (one has damselfly wings). Also mentioned in 6th edition as mages. A possible elite unit for the Wood Elves or higher ranking Spellweavers.
1.Chapter 18-19 has ‘Forest Spirits’ coming out of the forest and attacking the Beastmen.-“Spring came to the shores of the Idolan, blackened by fire and hungry for revenge. As Caorann lay bleeding on his fallen kin, he laughed. Figures were bursting from the smoke in all directions: immense, inhuman goliaths and hunched, spindly wraiths, shadowy beings of thorn and bark that raced through the crimson dawn, towering over the ranks of minotaurs. Awful sounds filled the air, loud enough to be heard over the fire that was still raging through Locrimere: the harsh crack of breaking limbs and moist tearing of flesh.” The shadowy beings of thorn and bark could be another type of forest spirit as they seem quite ethereal and are likely so with a Cygor focusing upon them.
1.Chapter 20 has Orion on an eagle-“For the first time in his short life, Orion felt free. The forest was gone. It had sunk beneath him in a haze of grey cloud and all that remained was the endless, blinding azure of the evening sky. Skólann’s enormous bulk was beneath him and she was no longer trembling. The giant eagle had grudgingly accepted her new rider and she was at ease once more, and revelling in the power of her enormous wings.”
1.The Vale of Fincara (Turas-Alva) (Alvaír Warriors)-“Tall, long-limbed guards hurried towards him: asrai, certainly, but clad in strange, tawny-coloured robes of feather and moss. Even stranger than their cloaks were the masks they all wore: hoods of animal hide with long snouts of carved bone, designed to resemble the beaks of eagles. The guards carried slender wooden javelins”
1.Animals can serve as Wood Elf units, especially with the Wild Hunt-“As Orion ploughed through the enemy ranks, animals were stampeding from every direction to join his charge: an army of wolves, boars and foxes was pouring from the forest and tearing into everything they encountered.”
1.Orion also has his Hounds as well.-“Grey, rangy hounds emerged from the trees, sniffing and growling as they caught the scent of his divine blood.”
1.Priests of Kurnous-These could be elite Wild Riders. 2.”On either flank of the charge were riders, mounted on pale, ghostlike steeds. Orion recognised his feral priests, with their tall, jagged masks and thin, spiralled horns.”
1.Also, Orion should be able to use his magical bow (Hawk’s Talon). It's on his model but he cannot switch weapon to use it.
2.Drycha and her Branchwraiths were the ones to contain the Nurgle Daemon Alkhor (Plague Lord and Old Blight). This seems a decent theme for a future Lord pack featuring the Wood Elves (Wood Elves vs Nurgle).
2.Coeddil is referred to as ‘The Ancient One’ (he is an Ancient Treeman during the End Times so he can be represented in game as an unlock for Drycha). “He was hunched in shadow at the bowl of a natural amphitheatre, surrounded by his dutiful handmaidens. They were wraiths of bark and thorn, like Drycha”. “The centuries had gradually stripped him of form, leaving little more than a mountain of shadows and a vague rustle of leaves, but the song of the forest radiated from him, flooding the amphitheatre with its silent refrain, filling Drycha with courage.”
2. Possible Nurgle unit-“The things he had mistaken for natural insects were enormous grubs, several feet wide and held aloft by spindly, whirring wings. The creatures were swooping back and forth across the garish yellow river, trailing strands of mucus from barbs that jutted from their abdomens. Some were clad in black, iron armour and others dangled long, twitching proboscises from their heads.” “Enormous, segmented grubs whirred overhead, carrying pot-bellied riders”
3.Tree Spirits wielding weapons seems to be possible-“No, Finavar realised, not trees. The tall, crooked shapes were moving and whispering to each other. Some clutched long, curved weapons in their wooden claws.” “This close, he saw how different the spirits’ faces were from the bark of trees. Their features were huge, strange and inhuman, but filled with emotion and intelligence. What he had originally taken for splits in bark, were actually runes, formed from their brittle flesh and glowing with faint light.” “They were tree-like things – forest spirits, like the dryads – but these were goliaths. Their faces looked down through the fruit trees and they batted the dryads aside like insects.” These forest spirits are from the Wildwood and so, can be a valid explanation for why we've never seen them before.
3.Large Nurgle monster-“As weak, grey light washed over the unnaturally gaudy landscape, it revealed that, rather than an outcrop of land, the shape was a vast, spineless mollusc. Its pallid, puckered flesh glistened in the growing light and its face turned to reveal a nest of tentacles that undulated, drifting like grass caught in the breeze. It was the scale of the thing that shocked Finavar most. The monster had blocked the whole width of the valley with its bulk.”
3.Possible RoR unit-“even archers from the Night Glens – the Wraiths of Modryn, they call themselves. They certainly looked more than half-spirit to me.”
3.’wooden guardians’-Automatons made out of Wood-“The figures from the frieze had sprung to life and were approaching them from several directions at once. Their carved, wooden faces were as expressionless as ever, but they had raised twohanded swords and were moving with solemn, chilling purpose. They were clad in pauldrons and hauberks constructed of oval, metal plates. Their dead, wooden eyes looked out from beneath tall helmets, designed to resemble dragons. They made a strange sight. Some of the figures were almost fully formed, apart from a flat, featureless back or side, but others were no more than a sliver of wood, only ever designed to be seen from one angle in the original frieze. Their outlines were silhouetted against the light and they reminded Finavar of a magic lantern he had seen as a child – rows of thin, mute figures, jerking mannequin-like towards him.”
“They were as wooden and expressionless as the others, but these warriors wore even more elaborate armour and they carried spears rather than swords.”
3.Snails and Slugs can be a form of monstrous infantry for Nurgle-“These smaller daemons carried prizes too – gastropods with human heads and sacks filled with wriggling, glistening worms. And, slithering alongside these smaller shapes were larger creatures – oozing, ponderous molluscs with teetering spiral shells and probing, glistening antennae.”
3.Armoured Plaguebearers or Heralds of Nurgle?-“While Atolmis and the others had been busy running in circles, several larger shapes had crept quietly from the rotten trees. They were of a similar breed to the other daemons – bony limbs, rotten, diseased flesh, pot bellies and single, yellow eyes – but they were twice the size and clad in thick, armour-like hide. Rather than a single tusk, their heads were crowned with a cruel nest of jagged horns and as they began to laugh, long, segmented tongues tumbled from between their fangs.” Was not sure on this one, could be elite Plaguebearers or the Herald of Nurgle.
3.Wildcats, a previous Wood Elf unit-“Dozens of wildcats were circling in the shadows, padding in and out of view and following his movements with their glinting, yellow-green eyes.”
3.Orion can get a dragon as a mount!-“As the spirits watched in amazement, Tanos climbed from the pool, lowered his head and allowed Orion to climb along his neck and take a seat between his wings. Then he reared up and let out a deafening roar.” “Orion plunged through the clouds on Tanos’s back, haloed by a burning sky. Sparks flashed along his antlers and danced on the bone-white tip of his spear. He sang as his dragon mount bore him through the fumes, filling the air with majesty and leading his strange kin to war.”
3. “Finally, entering the garden from every direction came vast squadrons of the daemon-flies, each as big as she was and carrying spear-wielding, cyclopean riders.”-A small one here, Plague Drone riders are armed with swords on the tabletop, not spears, so another weapon option.
3.A mix of animals from the Wild Hunt-“Below them, emerging from the trees in one snorting, tidal rush, came bears, followed by boars, followed by wolves, stags and noble, moonflanked unicorns.” Unicorns and Great Stags are an unit in Storm of Magic and the rest appear in the picture with the Wildcats.
This is one of the largest Wood Elf novels I could find (maybe the only one) and so, any information in it could be useful. There are other obscure and possible units for the Wood Elves such as Zoats, Wythel Warriors (Citadel Journal 37) and the Living Forest/Woken Forest from Storm of Magic, but we'll have to see.
Anyway,thanks for reading and discuss and tell me of any other information that you think would be relevant on the Wood Elves.

2020.09.26 00:44 larki18 Interview with Brandon in Hot Press: "All Killer, No Filler"

Whilst buzzing with new album excitement - kd lang, Weyes Blood and Lindsey Buckingham are among those who helped his band score yet another No 1 - Brandon Flowers is sickened by the state of the American nation and praying for a Biden victory in November. He talks heroes and villains (thankfully there's more of the former) with Stuart Clark.
He hasn't seen any little girls riding tricycles down corridors or maniacally typed 'All work and no play makes Brandon a dull boy' a gazillion times whilst possessed by a demon, but otherwise life during lockdown for The Killers lead singer has been a lot like The Shining.
"Yeah, we've been away from everything and everyone up here in the Utah mountains, which when all of this craziness started in March and April were covered in snow," laughs Brandon, who, with there being nothing quite as romantic as a Hot Press interview, is curled up on the couch with his wife Tana Mundkowsky. "It is a bit like The Shining. We've done okay, though. Well, apart from the home schooling. That was a disaster!"
So his three pupils, Ammon (12), Gunnar (ten) and Henry (nine) gave Mr. Flowers a hard time.
"No, we're just really bad teachers," he grimaces. "I tried the piano a little bit with them and it didn't go down very well. Our oldest boy was able to navigate it - he's more independent - so that was nice but the other two had a tough time."
Asked whether he was a model pupil himself, Brandon gives me a withering "are you kidding?" look and says, "No, I wasn't a great student. It was before they were really handing out ADD diagnoses and I had a touch of that for sure. It feels like such a long time for kids to be sitting at a desk. I can't remember a time that I didn't really struggle."
How bad did it get?
"I missed most of sixth grade. I was having a hard time at school and we moved from one town in Utah to another one thirty miles away. We were doing a bunch of renovating at home, which was a nice experience. My Dad always had the oldies station on when I was a kid, so I discovered a lot of great music early on. I'm kind of equating what's happening with my kids now to that - hopefully we're bonding the way I did with my Dad. We've talked before, haven't we?"
Yep, twice in 2004 just before and immediately after The Killers' debut Hot Fuss went to number one in a pile of countries including Ireland (see page 24).
It's fair to say that Brandon's life since then has not been dull. We'll run through some of the many highlights later but first to the not inconsiderable matter of Imploding the Mirage, the band's eighth studio album, which has also claimed the top spot on both sides of the Irish Sea.
It's an, ahem, all Killers, no filler affair with a guest list that includes Lindsey Buckingham whose six-string participation in Caution is one of the numerous highlights. Was he still smarting at being booted out of Fleetwood Mac last year?
"Um..I think he was just, you know, happy to get the call," Brandon says diplomatically. "I can't speak to the problems within Fleetwood Mac but from our short encounter...I blame everyone else! We recorded that a couple of months before lockdown so we got to share a studio, which I loved, and afterwards go to dinner. He was open to everything. We felt like we needed something for the end of Caution and to hear Lindsey deliver his solo like he did is something we'll remember forever."
Was there a money song they nailed and thought, "We're okay, we have that one in the bad, the rest will follow"?
"I think Bono once said, 'If you aren't sure what your second single is, you don't have one,'" he reflects. "There's another great quote from [legendary Queen producer] Roy Thomas Baker which is "There's no such thing as a bad mix of a good song." So these things were swirling around my head - 'Maybe Caution isn't good enough.' So I kind of went and forced My Own Soul's Warning out of the universe. I knew I was really proud of that one, and then we came up with Running Towards a Place and Blowback, and I was really like, 'I can walk with my head held high now.'
A kitchen-sink drama about a 'born into poor white trash' girl leaving home on the bus - it's so cinematic the screenplay writes itself - Blowback features Adam Granduciel, which I'm assuming is code for just dicking around in the studio.
"No, he does a great synthesizer on the second verse, and a really cool slide part on the chorus in the counter melody, which he took and applied effects to," Brandon says, sticking up for his new studio buddy.
Whose idea was it to also throw a bit of Frankie Knuckles and Jamie Principle's Chicago house classic, Your Love, into the Blowback mix?
"Did you pick up on that?"
I knew it was something I'd bopped around to during my chronically ill spent youth, but no, I had to wait for the nice record company person to mail me the credits, which also confirm the sampled presence of Krautrock legends Can on Dying Breed.
"I wouldn't sit around listening to them all the time, but I know about Can's impact on a lot of the music that's shaped me. They're in our DNA. That song was going down a very particular road, but the sample opened it up. As for the Frankie Knuckles one, that was Shawn Everett's idea."
Everett being the quintuple Grammy Award-winning Canadian who co-produced Imploding the Mirage with Foxygen's Jonathan Rado. He previously shared a studio with Bob Dylan, as did another album contributor, Blake Mills, who plays guitar on The Big Zim's Rough and Rowdy Ways. Did he give Brandon and the boys the nod that a new Dylan record was on its way?
"No, he kept his cards quite close. Only a few people knew Murder Most Foul came out and I thought it was going to be a one-off. And then we started getting more singles. I really love I Contain Multitudes. Gosh, that song just floors me." Murder Most Foul feels like doing round to Bob's house and flicking through his records and his DVDs. It's 17 minutes long and too short.
"Yeah, I loved it," Brandon enthuses. "What a song to come back with - especially during lockdown."
Dylan dropped Murder Most Foul just after we'd seen Bono sing Let Your Love Be Known in his living room after very obviously staying up all night, and just prior to Michael Stipe debuting No Time For Love Like Now (there's a theme developing here) in his own not-so-humble-abode. It's interesting how many big artists thought, 'All bets are off, let's just get it out there,' during the height of the pandemic.
"Yeah, necessity is the mother of invention," Brandon nods. "The first performance of Caution ended up being for our friend Jimmy Kimmel. It's just me and Ronnie in a bathroom. No amplifier, no effects, no Auto-Tune. It forces you to prove yourself in a different way, so it's been interesting."
Lockdown also found The Killers performing a poignantly paired down version of Land of the Free, their 2019 standalone, which reacts to the murder of George Floyd with the updated lines: 'When I go out in my car, I don't think twice/But if you're the wrong color skin/You grow up looking over both your shoulders/in the land of the free/How many killings must one man watch in his home/Til he sees the price on the tag?/Eight measured minutes and 46 seconds/Another boy in the bag/Another stain on the flag." Like Bruce Springsteen's American Skin (41 Shots) before it, it's a damning indictment of the institutionalized racism that blights US law enforcement.
"We did it in Provo, in a great studio, June Audio, which is about an hour from where I live, Brandon adds soberly, "I just felt compelled to rework it and document it. I was broke. I believe it was the CNN video. I cried on my couch watching it. I couldn't believe that people weren't rioting already. I thought that first night that things were going to start burning - and they did. It simmered for a minute before they went onto the streets."
Depressingly, Provo was also where the 15,000-strong Utah Citizens Alarm militia staged its first anti-Black Lives Matter counter demonstration, which resulted in the shooting of a passing motorist. The fallout is still being felt statewide.
"You get people coming out of the woodwork for strange things like that," Brandon rues. "They're worried about their guns being taken away from them. Whole campaigns are run on issues like that."
Does Brandon regard Trump vs. Biden as the most important election he's been able to vote in?
"I think so. You know, four years before was important and my wife and I voted for Hilary Clinton. We deserve more from our leaders. It's sad that democracy has led to this, and that celebrity has gone this far."
Having done some top quality digressing, let us return to Imploding the Mirage, which with Lucius, Weyes Blood and a certain catherine dawn lang also on the guest list is purposefully not The Killers boys' club of old.
"The women being on there was a very pre-determined thing we wanted to do because we had the album cover picked out long before we finished recording," Brandon explains. "It's a painting by Thomas Blackshear of these two celestial beings, so it needed to have a female component. We started thinking about women who might work, and came up with Lucius who are great singers and toured with Roger Waters; Weyes who'd just made a record with Rado - her bridge on My God is so beautiful, and then because I needed someone to basically represent my mother on Lightning Fields, kd lang."
Was she told that when they were selling the song to her?
"No, she still doesn't know that," he says a tad guiltily. "It was my late mother talking to my dad. It was during quarantine so she was up in Canada and sent it in. It ended up being great. She's iconic, and it was so gracious of her to lend her voice to us."
As I mentioned in my Imploding the Mirage album review, it's a peach of a song with a half-inched Pet Shop Boys intro giving way to a barrage of synths and guitars of the squalling maelstrom variety.
Brandon is great but lang is even better as she belts out her Mrs. Flowers verses - "Don't beat yourself up/You laid good ground/Look at 'em walk from scratch to sundown/You put in the work and then some/Where is all this coming from?" with 80s AQR gusto.
It's another example of Brandon painting his characters in an almost Springsteenian way.
"I was lucky enough to get to Bruce's Broadway show and it was just the best," he coos. "To do that and Western Stars and the autobiography at this stage in his career gives us all hope. His work rate is phenomenal. It's almost an addiction. You don't want to take the opportunity for granted. It becomes part of your DNA and your identity."
Bruce's film version of Western Stars is part of The Killers' reason for working with Muse and Halsey director Sing Lee on their own Imploding the Mirage short.
"It's going to be 30 minutes long and feature Caution and snippets of other songs," is all a spoiler-avoiding Brandon will say for now. Given Lee's past output, it's likely to mirror the epic widescreen feel of the record - and then some.
I happened on a Youtube clip the other day of Brandon grinning like a kid at Christmas as he belts out Thunder Road with The Boss. One of the best moments of his life?
"It's up there," he reminisces fondly. "It was 2008 and we were on the same Pinkpop festival bill as him and the E- Street Band in Holland. I looked over during Mr. Brightside and behind our sound engineer you saw these Aviators and a very familiar countenance nodding along. We finished the set and walking back to the dressing rooms with Bruce, he said, 'Do you wanna do a little Thunder Road later?' It was just a dream. My favorite part was the preparing for it. I got to go back to his dressing room and we chose which verses we were going to sing. It was almost like a test, you know? I knew all the lyrics by heart and I wrote them by hand, and he helped me me mark up which parts he would sing and which ones I would sing. We got a guitar and worked it out. That behind the scenes moment was very special. I didn't really have time to feel nervous. If it had been suggested a day or two before I don't know if I could have made it!"
Before we let Brandon and Tana snuggle up properly on the sofa - two's company, three when one's a journo is definitely a crowd - what have been his other 'pinch me, am I dreaming' moments?
"In the early days, it was things like being recognized by people you admire," he concludes. "Getting to open for U2 on the first album. Or Morrissey. That was like, 'How did this happen?' These are people who I still had posters of on my wall. Glastonbury 2019 was a special gig for us. I was just really proud and thankful for everything. It felt full circle. That was a great moment."
------
THROWBACK - THE FANNISH INQUISITION
Brandon Flowers has always been upfront about The Killers' influences - and especially when talking to Hot Press!
You can tell from the vastness of his Utah mountain retreat and the cut of his designer cobbler that Brandon Flowers has done extremely well in life, but in some ways he's still the same shy 22 year old with a nervous giggle and the serious musical hots for The Cars, he Beatles, U2, The Cure, The Smiths, New Order, and Oass - roughly in that order - that I met for the first time backstage in 2004 at Oxegen.
Hot Fuss had only been out a few weeks and, while there was a buzz about them topping the Saturday New Band stage with Halie, Sone & Daughters and Razorlight on the undercard, there was no indication that some of the world's biggest stadiums awaited.
If we hadn't mislaid the video of it, you'd be able to see the brilliant bit in the interview when a drunken punter who'd managed to sneak past security, staggered over to us and initiated this conversation:
Drunken punter: "Are you in a band?"
Brandon: "Yeah."
Drunken punter: "Whassyername?"
Brandon: "The Killers."
Drunken punter: "The Killers? Ah, yer a bag of shite!"
I think we know who had the last laugh there.
"There's a bit of 'The grass is always greener' going on, yeah," Brandon, who I noted had a bit of the Matt Damon about him, agreed when I accused him of being an Anglophile. "We've never thought, 'Oh, we wish we were British,' but the music from The Beatles all the way up has always been really good. Hearing The Cure's Head on the Door for the first time was pretty special, and The Joshua Tree was a big record for us. I was inside the heart the last time U2 played Las Vegas, which was amazing (Before Angry in Athlone writes in, Brandon does know that U2 are Irish, Editor).
"Our guitarist, Dave, placed a 'Musician Wanted' ad mentioning Oasis, which came directly after me seeing them in Vegas as well, and deciding that's the direction I want to take. A couple of weeks later we were a band."
Asked whether he'd met any of his heroes, Brandon beamed and said, "Morrissey stood right next to me at soundcheck when we opened for him in LA. You've looked up to this guy since you were twelve and there he is eyeballing you."
By the time our paths crossed again in early December in the penthouse (natch) of Dublin's Clarion hotel, The Killers really were living the rock 'n' rock dream.
"It's been one amazing thing after another," he gushed. "Gold discs, being sat between Sarah Michelle Gellar and Geri Halliwell on The Jonathan Ross Show and looking up at Irving Plaza in New York and seeing David Bowie singing along to Mr. Brightside. I couldn't believe it! Afterwards he complimented every single one of us individually, and said that he could hear the whole history of rock 'n' rock in our songs. He's a hell of a musician and a hell of a nice guy. Elton John's the same - he's actually coming to our Manchester show tomorrow which is a follow on from us doing a TV special with him in Paris."
He almost started hyperventilating when I took him out on to the balcony, pointed at U2's former Hanover Quay HQ on the other side of the Liffey, and told him they were just about to announce their own branded iPod (remember them?)
"Man, that'd be so fucking cool!" he enthused. "The first thing I'd stick on it is the U2 Digital Complete Works followed by John Lennon Imagine, David Bowie Hunky Dory, Morrissey Vauxhall & I and The Cure Head on the Door. Those are the records I'd go into a burning house to rescue."
Brandon was in fan mode again when he finished by saying: "Watching Smiths videos with my brother when I was 12 and hearing Just What I Needed by The Cars on the radio are the two main reasons I got into music. As far as I'm concerned, Ric Ocasek is God!"

2020.09.16 06:03 Shop_Zombie A Weekly Moment of Bexcellence: Hope

This week I’m going to be talking about WrestleMania 35. My discussion of this particular moment is going to be very different from past discussion in that I’m going to go into things about it that I wouldn’t normally go into. I should therefore provide a warning here that this post is going to go heavily into “social issues”. I know that not everyone is comfortable with this sort of thing being bought into discussion about wrestling, so I apologise for that. I promise next week I’ll return to the usual programming. Also, to make my point properly, I’m going to go into some personal stuff as well, so if you’d rather not be reading about me going on about my life, you can skip past the next five paragraphs to where I get onto Becky and Mania. I think you can still pick up the necessary context from there.
Now, I feel like I should explain myself a bit before I go any further. The reason for covering WM35 right now, in this way, is because over the past week I’ve had some experiences that have made me realise something important about that particular moment. Something outside my usual wheelhouse of discussion, but that I feel I ought to cover regardless. The problem is, in order to properly make the point I want to make, I need to go into the personal stuff that lead me to this realization. That personal stuff involves talking about things I’ve never voluntarily disclosed to others before. Not even online. Primarily because the prospect is scary as hell. As such, if I leave this post too long, I’ll definitely chicken out and not do it. And this is a series of posts about Becky Lynch – being a coward about them just wouldn’t be right. So here goes nothing.
The thing is, I’m just an incredibly ordinary, unremarkable guy… except that I’m not. I’m usually really good at ignoring that except-that-I’m-not bit though - just getting on with pretending I really am an incredibly ordinary and unremarkable guy to myself and everybody else. I’ve been doing this for many years. Occasionally the pretending doesn’t work though, and the thing I’m trying to ignore comes up and punches me in the face. But such is life. However, this past week I accidentally stumbled upon something I was completely not expecting. It was a character on a TV show. The show is a British soap opera called Emmerdale, and the character is named Matty Barton, played by the actor Ash Palmisciano. The thing about Matty (and the actor who plays him), is that he’s just an incredibly ordinary, unremarkable guy…except that he’s not. He’s the exact same kind of not-as-ordinary-and-unremarkable-as-he-really-wishes-he-was as I am. You see, the uncomfortable truth of the matter is that myself and Matty (and Ash) have never been ordinary guys, and we never will be, because we’re transgender. To explain that in what I hope is the clearest way possible for anyone unfamiliar, we were all born biologically female. That’s the kind of thing that can really put a crimp not just in a man’s day, but in his whole life.
Now let’s rewind to the year 2005, when I was 16 years old and in my second last year of high school. I’d just started on testosterone as part of my physical transition and was flush with excitement about having my whole life ahead of me for the first time. I was eager to find out about as many guys like myself as I could. For role models and reference points for making my own way in the world as the kind of guy that I am. I figured there were probably plenty of examples of such guys in movies and TV that I’d just never noticed before because I’d never thought to. So I checked this out. You can imagine my dismay when I subsequently discovered that, throughout the entire history of movies and TV, there was a grand total of only two instances of men like me being represented. The first was a Hollywood film starring Hilary Swank as a transgender man who gets raped and murdered when the people of the small American town he’s living in discover his difference. The film is based on a real person and events that took place when I was five years old. The second instance was a documentary about a transgender man from the state of Georgia in the USA who dies of ovarian cancer as doctors refuse to treat him because of what he is. I haven’t seen either film and I don’t intend to.
As an impressionable 16-year-old coming to terms with what it meant to be what I was in the world, this discovery sent a powerful message that I’ve carried with me ever since: That I had to hide what I was from the world at all costs. Because that world did not know that men like me existed, and if they were to find out, the potential outcomes of that did not bear thinking about. So I’ve been hiding what I am from everyone I can ever since, even myself as much as I’m able. But there’s a great big pile of fear, shame, anxiety, isolation and vulnerability always there lurking in the back of my brain at all times. And every now and then it rises to the surface in a big way. Like when I’m at the pub with my mates, and we’re having a few pints. And then for some reason the conversation steers to transgender people. And it turns really ugly. And I’m reminded that my best mates think I’m a freak (they just don’t realise it). But I just laugh and go along with the conversation because I don’t want to arouse suspicion. Meanwhile, feelings of isolation, vulnerability and self-loathing inundate me.
And that’s just how life is. Or at least it was until last week, when I discovered this not-quite-so-ordinary guy on a British soapie. Then, for the first time in my 31 years on this planet, I saw myself in a piece of mainstream entertainment. I saw an actor who was just like me, playing a character who was just like me, telling our stories to the rest of the world. All our pain, trauma, struggles, anxieties, insecurities, hopes, fears, desires and joys, all there. I’ve watched my life, the things I feel, some of the things I’ve been through playing out in this popular TV show watched by many. It’s made me feel seen like I never have before, it’s made me feel like I exist in a way I never have before, it’s made me feel less alone than I ever have before, and for the first time in my life, it’s made me think that one day in my lifetime, I’ll be able to live in this world without fear or shame. For the first time, it’s given me hope. And this brings me to Becky Lynch at WrestleMania 35.
I think the most obvious go-to when thinking about the importance of Becky winning the Raw and Smackdown Women’s Championships by pinning Ronda Rousey in the main event of WrestleMania 35 is the usual narrative of “nothing is impossible” and “if you work hard enough, you can accomplish anything”. That and of course the breaking down of barriers for female wrestlers in the business. But this past week I’ve come to the belief that there’s something even more important than either of those things, that comes from that image of her holding her two titles high, as the fireworks go off. That something is hope. It’s a hope rooted in representation.
Now I’m not one of the people being represented here, which is why I’ve never really thought about her win meaningfully in this way before. It’s also why I’m not going to try and speak directly about how those people who are being represented feel. I can speak for myself, and hopefully I’ve done that in a way that makes clear the core idea I want to communicate. But I can’t speak for others. What I can do instead is take my experiences from the past week and imagine. I can imagine a young girl, maybe she’s not all that popular at school. Or all that tall. She’s also no good at sports, not very flexible or athletic. She hates doing PE at school. I can also imagine that she loves watching wrestling. And that she’s watching WrestleMania 35. I can imagine her looking at this short, Irish, woman, who was never the big star, or the important one on the roster. Whose also not very good at sports, and not very athletic. And I imagine how that young girl must feel as she looks at this woman, holding up her two titles as the fireworks go off. I imagine what that must mean to her. To her sense of self-worth, her value to the world, her visibility, to the potential she sees in herself, the possibilities for her future, and the realization of her dreams.
I understand what all this can mean to someone now. It means hope. Hope for themselves and their future as who they are in this world. All because they had a chance to experience something incredibly important for the first time: seeing themselves out there on the biggest of stages, with the world at their feet.
This past week has taught me that there’s an incredible power to seeing people you don’t normally expect to see, in places you don’t normally expect to see them. Like a transman as a charming village lad in a popular British soap opera. Or a short, unathletic, pun-loving Irishwoman standing tall with two world titles held high above her head as the fireworks go off at the close of WrestleMania. Most of us don’t notice this kind of power because it doesn’t affect us. But for the many unexpected people out there, it’s life-changing. Amongst all the things Becky accomplished that night in April last year, to my mind, this one thing stands tall above them all. It’s the accomplishment of giving hope.

2020.09.07 15:16 AskACopywriter #006: How This Ad Made 50% of American Women Prostitutes

Reading Time: 10 Minutes

Header Image

For most of the 1900s, if you were a woman who colored her hair, you were either an actress or… well, a prostitute.
Dyeing your hair was something you would do in great secrecy and NEVER admit to. Because unless someone was asking for your autograph, you would be considered a ‘loose’ lady.
That was the case until 1956. It took an ad campaign to make it socially acceptable to dye your hair and open up the market. Before this ad, only 7% of women dyed their hair.
After this ad, 50% of women started doing it. The hair-dye market grew to $200MM in a few years. And this brand ate up half the market share.
It took hair coloring from something only expected of prostitutes to… well, anyone. So here’s how 50% of American women were “made prostitutes” by the standards of a previous generation.
If your product has a negative social stigma, there is no better case study than what I’m going to cover right now.
In this article, I’ll tell you the business decisions that led up to it, the exact ad he used and takeaways you can apply to your own copy and business.

Finding Miss Clairol

We don't know much about Lawrence and Joan Gelb, the husband-and-wife founders of Clairol.
We DO know that Lawrence was a chemist. And in 1931, he traveled to Europe with his wife and two sons. Despite The Great Depression, Lawrence wanted to start a new business and went searching for great ideas.
In France, he found a hair-coloring product made by Muray of France. This product was very different from all the other treatments at the time. Clairol went INSIDE the hair shaft, giving hair more natural-looking color.
Joan insisted this was it. Lawrence bought the rights to the product. And off they went, back to America.
Back home, Lawrence worked with other chemists to improve Muray’s formula. A few years later, he was ready to launch Clairol.
Joan was the head of the company, called Clairol. She promoted “Instant Clairol Oil Shampoo Tint” in beauty salons around the country. Even in the middle of the Great Depression, women spent money on hair care and beauty salons.
By 1938, Clairols annual sales reached $1MM.
Fast forward to 1956. Clairol launched their flagship product “Miss Clairol.” This was a home hair coloring kit that let women color their hair in one step, by mixing the solution with peroxide. It only took 20 minutes and the cost was affordable.
Lawrence and Joan attended the 1956 International Beauty Show in New York City. Their goal? Show Miss Clairol to the world.
When the Clairol sales team demonstrated their new product, thousands of beauticians watched in surprise.
Bruce Gelb notes, “They were astonished. This was to the world of hair color what computers were to the world of adding machines. The sales guys had to bring buckets of water and do the rinsing off in front of everyone, because the hairdressers in the crowd were convinced we were doing something to the models behind the scenes.”
But even with this amazing product, the Gelbs were stuck. In the 3 decades since Clairol started, they fought a very strong stigma.
Back in those days, it was believed women who colored their hair were either actresses… or prostitutes. With no in-between. So unless you were a movie star, you didn’t want it known that you color your hair.
But with famous actresses creating the “blonde bombshell” look… what was a woman to do to look like her favourite movie stars?
So, even with this amazing product, Clairol hired an advertising agency to make a campaign for “Miss Clairol.”
The goal? Make the idea of hair coloring more socially acceptable and to emphasise natural-looking results.
And this is where we meet…

Shirley Polykoff

Shirley Polykoff was a junior copywriter at Foote, Cone & Belding. The only female copywriter in that entire company.
She got the Clairol account, and there was no other person better for the job.
The inspiration for the Clairol campaign came from an experience she had 20 years earlier. An experience that became an in-joke between her and her husband, George.
See, in 1933, Shirley was invited by George to Passover dinner with his family. It was a very fancy and heavy dinner. Soup. Roasted chicken. A sweet potato and prune dish called tsimmes. Sponge cake. Tea with lemon. And a mixed fruit gelatine.
Shirely was keen to make a great impression on George’s parents, so she ate EVERYTHING put in front of her.
On the drive home, she was curious to hear how it went.
She asked George how it went. If his mother liked her. George kept dodging the question.
“That’s nice, George. But what did she say?”
George paused.
“She says you paint your hair.”
For weeks afterward, she kept imagining what she said. She could her George’s mother asking in Yiddish, as she cleared the dishes: “Zee paint dos huer? Odder zee paint dos nicht? Zee paint dos huer? Odder zee paint dos nicht?”
Which loosely translates to “Does she … or doesn’t she?”
(We've already seen the power of a good slogan before in the ad that increased a piano manufacturer’s net profits by 1,616% [Reddit Link].)
So, when she had no ideas and a deadline coming up, she wrote a memo to the head art director.

The Memo

On that stuff I talked to you about, Miss Clairol Hair Color Bath, I’ve got three approaches. One is great but I need at least two others for knock-downs at the meeting so I can sell the one I really want.
#1. “Naturally by Miss Clairol.” We use the same model in each ad, a kind of fresh-faced creature, and each time her hair color is different but it always looks natural. (Yeah, I know. It’s a nothing idea.)
#2. “Tear up those baby pictures. I’m a redhead now!” and then a pay-off line like: “No one will know you weren’t born a redhead” (or blonde or whatever). It has a nice kind of exuberance combined with naturalness. Only I don't see these for long-term use and a good campaign has to snowball.
#3. Now here’s the one I really want. If I can get it sold to the client. Listen to this: “Does she ... or doesn’t she?” (No, I’m not kidding. Didn’t you ever hear of the arresting question?) Followed by: “Only her mother knows for sure!” or “So natural, only her mother knows for sure!”
I may not do the mother part, though as far as I’m concerned mother is the ultimate authority. However, if Clairol goes retail, they may have a problem of offending beauty salons, where they are presently doing all of their business. So I may change the word “mother” to “hairdresser.” This could be awfully good business— turning the hairdresser into a color expert. Besides, it reinforces the claim of naturalness and, not so incidentally, glamorizes the salon.
The psychology is obvious. I know from myself. If anyone admires my hair, I’d rather die than admit I dye. And since I feel so strongly that the average woman is me, this great stress on naturalness is important.
So too for the models. No slick overly made-up fashion types. Our women must be like the gals in that book by Spectorsky, The Exurbanites. Shirtwaist types instead of glamor gowns. Cashmere-sweater-over-the-shoulder types. Like larger-than-life portraits of the proverbial girl on the block who’s a little prettier than your wife and lives in a house slightly nicer than yours. Or the average model with her face washed. This, in itself, will be a new twist. All very P.T.A.-ish and ladylike, if you’ll pardon the expression. Very avant garde, you must admit, to have a “lady” in a haircoloring ad.
And let’s put her in real-life situations. Like a mother with a child . . . maybe heads together doing homework ... or out in the playground going down a slide ... or sailing a boat with her kid in the park. I used to do that with my little girls until I was ready to drop. Anyway, kids are fun to have in an ad that asks, “Does she ... or doesn’t she?” wouldn’t you say?
Think about this. Bill, but remember especially that everything about these ads has to come through as absolutely real, straightforward, and honest. Even the tiniest phony note will flaw what we’re trying to accomplish.
For instance, the other night, it was about one in the morning, George and I stopped off at Ratner’s on the East Side for some scrambled eggs and bagels. We were practically alone in the place and just about ready to call it a night when the door opened and in walked a beautiful young man, spotless in a navy-blue Bar Mitzvah suit, except that he was obviously Irish. He staggered over to a table near us and ordered some black coffee. He’d just escaped from being best man at his sister’s wedding and was wondering aloud why his sister had wanted to marry the S.O.B. Suddenly he looked over at George.
“My name is O’Brien,” he said, coming over to shake hands. George, wanting to make him feel at home, said, “Hi. My name is Murphy.”
O’Brien studied George’s face a moment, then went back to his coffee with a puzzled look on his face. “Hey, Murph,” he said after a while, “you’re Jewish, aren’t you?”
I’m not quite sure how this story applies, unless I’m just trying to say I don’t want to fool some of the people even some of the time.
S.P.
On top of this, Polykoff suggested advertising in family magazines. Not women’s or fashion magazines. Specifically, Life magazine.
Life magazine turned it down. Apparently, having bikini girls on the cover was fine, but this ad was too suggestive?
In Foote, Cone & Belding, people were in two camps. One camp, mostly men, thought the same thing. That it was too suggestive.
The other camp, a minority of women, assured that the dirt was in the boys’ minds. The ad simply asks a woman does she or doesn’t she use haircoloring.
Polykoff insisted that Life magazine ask their female employees. They did. And they couldn’t find a single woman who admitted to a dirty meaning in those words. And so, the ad launched.
Everyone involved began getting rich. The magazines. The ad buyers. The typesetters. The makers of the dresses the models wore.
Most of all, Clairol made money.
Hair-coloring went from being used by just 7% of women in the country to over 50%.

A Full Ad

Image of 1957 Ad

Polykoff’s memo covers the headline and sub-heading. Let’s look at the rest of the ad.
That wonderfully radiant, outdoors-y look is more than just the reflection of a little clean air and sunshine. It’s the silky sheen of her hair, its clear sparkling color looks as fresh and natural in blazing sunlight as it does by the light of the moon. And that’s the beautiful difference with Miss Clairol! In every light, finished tone is soft, ladylike… gray is completely covered. And all it takes is minutes!
This section oozes with such colorful and lively language. You’ll see this a lot with any product that appeals to the senses.
Then in the last two sentences, we get to “harder” facts. It completely covers gray hair and it only taking a few minutes. Remember, assurance and ease are two very big selling points to use in copy.
That’s why most hairdressers recommend Miss Clairol—use it every time to put lasting young color back into fading hair… and to hide gray. With results so sure, why deny yourself the joy of knowing you’re a younger-looking, more attractive woman! Try Miss Clairol yourself. Today. In wonderful new Creme Formula or Regular.
Most women trust their hairdressers. To say that most hairdressers recommend Miss Clairol is to borrow that trust and put it on their product.
The copy also tells you WHEN to use it: when your hair is a bit dull or you want to hide gray hairs.
Again, it repeats offering assurance saying “results so sure.” And it asks you rhetorically if you don’t want to be a more youthful, attractive woman.
It then ends with a call-to-action with urgency.
MORE WOMEN USE CLAIROL THAN ANY OTHER HAIR COLORING
Human beings are social creatures and we will often do what most other people are doing. So, when you say, “Hey, a lot of people are doing this”, you are using a concept called social proof. You are saying in a way, “Hey, this is something you should do too.”

Another Ad

Image of 1956 Ad

This time, we have an ad featuring a schoolteacher. Remember, the focus of this campaign was to make it more socially acceptable to dye hair. And it featured “wholesome” women to do it.
This meant featuring mother-and-child, schoolteachers, secretaries, and so on.
Of course, once you have the answer, it’s easy as ABC. That’s why Miss Clairol is this teacher’s pet. And how the kids adore her bright looks … her pretty hair … her gay, happy outlook that makes even school seem like fun!
The first paragraph in the previous ad gave context to the outdoors picture. This one gives context to the woman and the children. And connects the positivity of that situation to Miss Clairol.
As every woman knows, it’s easier to be wonderful when you know you look wonderful! And the flattering, young hair color you get with Miss Clairol is wonderful no matter how you look at it!

2020.09.01 16:03 AbaddonDestler That Guy Cleric Simps over my Wife with me at the table and is then butt hurt for in game punishment

x-post /rpghorrorstories
Okay so this was a one shot at a convention a friend of mine was running as his first foray into DMing, it looked like a module but I don't know the name. Basically a load of Goblins had been stealing from travellers and were taking it back to a cave network where it turned out they were giving it to a Dragon for it's hoard.
The Players in this drama are:
Game has 4 set characters, normally I would play the Cleric or the Barbarian but as I was the most experienced and had been GMing for a long time I said I would just take what was left to fill out the party and help the GM or new players if there were any problems or they needed advice. By rule of ladies first and my sister in law and the other girl (whose name I don't remember) not knowing what to do meant my wife picks first and she decided to play the Dwarf Barbarian to try something different to Rogue. My sister in law and the girl had been talking and asked if they could both play the Half-Elf Rogue so that they could confer on what to do as they hadn't played before; DM says that's okay and my wife offers to help them as Rogue was her main class.
Then That Guy goes next as I'd been okay with and I had been telling him earlier that I main cleric and it's a fairly back of party role and responsible role; he picks Elf Cleric. Fair enough that leaves me with the Human Fighter.
Now before I get into the session I should mention there had been other red flags with That Guy so I will list a few of the big ones:
There are a lot more and this guy had been in our group for years and we just couldn't get rid of him partly because most of us wouldn't tell him to sod off because they were shy and the three of us that would have didn't like to because he had a tonne of issues and we just felt sorry for the guy
Back to campaign, as soon as the game starts That Guy who is playing the Cleric decides to take every opportunity to get in the way of my Wife who is playing a Dwarf Barbarian wielding a +1 greataxe (+3 against goblins). He has a sling and a scimitar and decides that as a man of god he must be on the front line.
I tried to gently explain to him that that was a bad idea, he was a purely healing and buffing cleric, no damaging spells, that he wasn't working with the party and continually dragged out every fight longer than it should have by getting in the way, trying to take hits for my wife's character, and occasionally the two girls rogue though not as often. He ignored everything even when I suggested fighting from the back line with the Rogue (who by the way were playing amazingly, between the two of them they came up with really creative solutions, pinged enemies from the back line and got the hang of back stabbing really quickly) as me and my wife were the front line and we needed range support.
He continued to physically get in the way to "defend" the Barbarian Dwarf and try and attack high level enemies. The table is getting angrier, the DM is losing control and getting disheartened and my wife is furious at him to the point where this normally very shy and quiet woman starts almost screaming at him to get to the back or she'll chop his head off and we'll go on without him. No one but him and me argued with that idea but it continued until he became so much of problem and we only had the table for about 30 minutes more and we weren't even half way through to dungeon.
Finally I passed a note to the DM "I tie the cleric up and carry him" he made me make a roll for both and there it was, I had to abandon my bow and hand out some of my potions but that was fine; the Rogue girls were ecstatic to get a bow rather than throwing knives. We carry on, occasionally swapping between my Fighter and my Wife's barbarian (looking back he tried to make escape checks a lot less often when my wife's character was carrying him which has just skeeved us both out at the thought) meet the boss of the dungeon, a Goblin chief riding a spider. Perfect I dump the cleric and tell him to stay there out of trouble.
The fight begins and that guy is constantly trying to escape until he does, he charges past the rogue on 2Hp, runs past me dealing with three goblins and on half hp, and puts himself, directly between my wifes Barbarian who was at full Hp and the Goblin chief she had been preparing a big attack for, an attack that would deal 3D8+10 damage to this goblin chief. He took the damage from the goblin chief 1D6 with D6 poison damage and it nearly floored him, this attack would have barely scractched my Wife's barbarian because of course it wouldn't she was a barbarian and a Dwarf and had advantage against goblins and poison. After i finally lose my temper with him, and my wife having to move her character model and charge the attack a further two rounds the fight was done and we won and I ordered him to heal the Rogue while my wife and I take health potions. He still tries to heal my Wife's barbarian (who had taken a total of 2 points of damage which was completely his fault for getting in the way and dragging out the fight and forcing her to suffer an attack of opportunity) but she has her Dwarf physically slap him and in character scream at him and he does as she says.
Even me and the DM were done with this guys shit at this point and we had 10 minutes left (we cleared over half the dungeon in 20 minutes when he was tied up when before that it had taken us almost an hour and a half to get to the half way point because of him slowing us down).
This is when the DM shows us what was meant to be the epic dragon fight at the end of the dungeon. The Dragon flies away to speed things up which pisses us all off.
This results in one of my first time In character turns PvP and the Rogue (using a bag of goblin heads they had gotten off my wife during one of our trades of carrying the Cleric, she had been collecting the heads in a burlap sack for serial killer reasons) join in as we lay into the Cleric until he is dead and bleeding, while the Barbarian stole all the loot, we would take his money, and then claim that the Goblins killed the cleric while we curse his name to oblivion. He complained to anyone that would listen but by that point I took everyone away and ran a game of Maid RPG to calm down and refused to let him join in.
I felt bad later and would later apologise to DM for how things went down but he told me he was happy because That Guy apparently had done the same thing the day before and learnt nothing and would proceed to get in the way of Combat to save the lovely lady he was crushing on (even if she was playing a Dwarf Barbarian or Dragonborn Paladin!) until he was finally told he was banned from joining in any of the one shots being run at the convention due to dragging the games out and making sessions late/not finish due to time constraints.
I would later lose contact with That Guy and I don't regret it one bit after he sent a plush of that same MLP character he fetishized and told my wife she was like to my wife under the guise of a birthday present; her birthday is in August and he sent it in June.
Tl;Dr That Guy simp plays Cleric and tries to protect my wife ruining the campaign and then gets butthurt after we kill him in game and refuse to let him simp all over a game of Maids RPG
