2023.06.01 08:10 plozappi Seeing other men wife up your old hos

Back in the glory days of Craigslist, I had a number of excellent experiences coaxing young college coeds into trying prostitution in a very coy way. I posted "generous gentleman" style posts that left a lot to the imagination, made them think of me as a rich boyfriend, and then pumped and dumped them. Beautiful thin innocent sweet coeds. None of them had never had sex for money before, and most had never had cum on their face. After I came once on their face and once inside them (bagged), I'd get them to realize the gravity of how I'd defiled them by saying, casually, as if it was nothing, "so how was your first expeirence with pros---" then cut myself off and say "sex for money? Was it as good for you as it was for me?" sometimes I'd get scowls, several times I got some good crying (which was a huge turnon), twice I got girls refusing money so that they didn't have to accept becoming prostitutes (there was no OnlyFans... this was a different time almost 20 years ago... prostitution was very shameful to them). I'd told them that they'd be getting $2000 a month for two sessions a week, after fucking them for 3-4 hours I sent them home with $250, and then the next day send them an email saying there wasn't good chemistry but I wish them the best. My goal was to make them hate themselves, not hate me.

Oh, also, I videotaped all my sessions, and stored them in folders with their real names and Facebooks, as these girls were too naive to use fake names or numbers.

So now I watch my fuck sessions in split screen with the video on the left and the girl's Facebook on the right. Now, many of these girls are married, some with kids... and it's so funny to see what garbage these guys married. Most of them are 30+ pounds heavier, saggier in the face, of course have taken many more cocks, and of course were sold to me for such a cheap price back in the day. What degradation your precious wife endured from me for three pieces of green paper!

Me... I get to dump loads in a vag that has never taken another cock. LOL

2023.06.01 07:42 RemnantEvil [Video games journalism] When a writer's punished for having the wrong opinion and leads a tiny exodus of hobbyists

What is Rock, Paper, Shotgun?
Rock, Paper, Shotgun (RPS) is a PC-gaming focused site based in the UK that was started in 2007. It has the usual gaming site content – Top 5/10/50/100 lists, publisher or developer press releases dressed up as news, reviews, previews, press event reports, a podcast, and – important to this story – a comment section below articles where gamers and capital-G Gamers, left-wing and right-wing alike, can find unity in complaining that their favourite was inappropriately placed in the aforementioned Top 5/10/50/100 lists.
(Fun fact: one of the co-founders of RPS was Kieron Gillen, who has since worked on Uncanny X-Men, Young Avengers, Marvel’s Darth Vader, and co-created Doctor Aphra.)
Of note, RPS bucks the generally apolitical nature of gaming sites by being quite openly left-wing. Though it generally isn’t a feature of many articles, it does show up on occasion, and not always in the best light. For instance, this article that has an unusual bone to pick with Rainbow Six Siege having a female hostage in the E3 demo. Despite Tom Clancy himself having a reputation as a conservative, and that’s pretty evident in his fiction, the Rainbow Six series has been unusually progressive in having women fighting terrorists alongside the men since the inception, and Siege was no exception. It was actually quite rare in the ‘90s that a woman not named Lara Croft was involved in the action alongside the boys, so it does seem like an article about Rainbow Six’s treatment of women is more about having a bone to pick.
(Editorial note: I do not believe a person’s identity is political. Some people do. There’s a saying that applies to capital-G Gamers – “There are two genders: male and political.” Often when they decry keeping politics out of video games, it’s directed at any sort of inclusion. So, the political slant on this is just to point out that left-wing people are generally pro-trans and right-wing people are generally not. Spoiler alert, this is a discussion about trans people.)
What is wargaming?
Within gaming, there are genres. Wargaming is one of them, and quite niche. Within the genre, there’s a diverse spectrum of passion. Some would consider themselves wargaming fans if they played and liked the Total War series. More hardcore wargamers would vehemently disagree and look down their nose at a game that has giant men standing on a world map; in their minds, wargaming is the domain of the chit and NATO symbology – a whole other language where a rectangular with an X through it represents an infantry unit, and the number of Xs or Is above the rectangle represents its size from XXXXX being army group, XX being division, II as battalion or I as company. (Give me hexes or give me death!) But in general, it’s operational (think the Italian campaign of WWII), strategic (the invasion of Sicily the Allies), or tactical (taking a specific town in Sicily with a regiment), and generally turn-based but occasionally real-time. You won’t find Age Of Empires in this genre, for instance.
Wargaming is not exclusive to the digital space either, and it’s just as likely to be played around an enormous table with intricate landscapes, pushing 8mm, 15mm or bigger pieces, usually hand-painted, and rolling dice. They’ll have a hefty rulebook in hand to consult how many dice you roll and what sort of success you need in order for your British mortar team to successfully knock out the German machine gun nest on the rooftop. Warhammer 40K is the most famous example, but that’s a single guy per base; the deeper wargames have a single base representing a squad or platoon stuck together to move as a group.
(The more hardcore have taken on the moniker grognards, a reference to old soldiers and specifically the original Imperial Guard that fought under Napoleon at Waterloo.)
What’s The Flare Path?
Among the contributors to RPS was one named Tim Stone, who started writing for the site as soon as it was founded. (I cannot use anonymity, so the usual sub rules apply about leaving people alone; Tim’s still writing and in order to engage with this drama, we have to link articles that clearly have his name on them.) There’s a distinction between staff and contributors; staff were full-time employees of the business, whereas contributors are just freelancers who pop in and out. He was not a run-of-the-mill writer who would guzzy up press releases, Tim only had one ongoing feature called The Flare Path with a supplemental Friday Foxer. Though he started out doing little comics under the title Strafe Left, he moved on to reviews and features before creating the regular feature The Flare Path in 2011.
The title The Flare Path is a reference to the lights that outline runways, allowing aircraft to take off or land at night. And that is a pretty good summation of the feature, because Tim’s focus was exclusively on wargaming and simulations, which could mean directing squadrons of aircraft to take off for a mission, or yourself piloting a plane to a gentle landing guided by the flare path. Every Friday, you would just as likely find an article about a game where you drive a train in rural England as you would a wargame where you command Roman legions in that very same countryside. Among the regular features were A2Z articles, where Tim would have short snippets for each letter of the alphabet, with Q often necessarily “Quick tea break” due to the infrequency of that letter showing up. For instance, a new ARMA game might be A, then teasing a review of Battle Brothers is B, and so on, just a fun way to wrap up a lot of short bits of news that don’t have enough meat for a full article.
Another article type would see Tim break out of his usual Friday containment and run communal games, typically Combat Mission. Combat Mission is a WWII/Cold War turn-based tactics game where you’d queue up orders to your units that would then be executed for 60 seconds, during which the other side would be executing their own orders and you’d simply have to watch how your planning and preparation plays out. And it turns out, this is surprisingly adaptable to a group game – Tim would grid the map, lay out a scenario, identify the units and the objectives, and then people would comment below the article to give instructions. You could only move one unit in a turn and you had to be the first to claim that unit, but you’d say, for example, “I’d like to move 1st Squad to H3 and try to suppress the machine gun,” and Tim would take your comment and play it out. The next day, he’d do a little narrative report on who did what, where, and when, and what the enemy did in response, in a fun narrative way, even naming characters who pulled off particularly heroic or cowardly feats. Then he’d update the map, and the next turn begins.
Alongside his regular article, he’d also post a Friday Foxer. He’d have a variety of different games in the Foxer genre, and often rewarded correct answers with prizes – usually codes for games that developers gave him. One type was giving clues to a location and the readers would have to deduce where Tim was “standing” that fit all the criteria. Others were Catchphrase-like messages hidden in images that you’d need to decode, or a series of seemingly-unrelated images which had a theme that you’d need to identify.
I go on these tangents to emphasize that Tim had built himself a little community on RPS. While contributors did reply to reader comments in articles, Tim was often playing a game with readers, which endeared him to some people. Not only that, if you were interested in wargaming or simulations, any article on RPS about those genres was typically Tim’s domain. For a certain group, Tim was the only regular source of news on two niche genres, and the only reason to read RPS if the newest action game or looter-shooter didn’t appeal to you. There was and (spoilers) is nothing like The Flare Path and the Foxers on RPS, as far as actual engagement with the article itself through community wargames or puzzles.
Equally important, wargaming itself is niche enough that there are few others who do what Tim does. is actually the name of the company who makes World Of Tanks, World Of Warships and others – ironically, none of which would qualify as wargames and would barely pass musters as simulations either. Wargamer has infrequent articles. The best podcast on the subject is Three Moves Ahead (which originally launched as the podcast for the now-defunct Flash Of Steel website), but the podcast is infrequent as well, is primarily focused on a single game per episode (though with comparisons made by the host or guests to other games), and has a bit too much focus on Total War or every single new Paradox DLC for Crusader Kings at the exclusion of more niche titles.
On a weekly schedule, Tim became a stable pair of hands, and was directing his community to support all sorts of up-and-comers who were otherwise ignored or neglected or just invisible to wider gaming press.
I also want to point out that there’s an often-unspoken ethical question at the core of wargaming as a hobby. To his credit, Tim often wrote about it, and would even avoid wargaming topics as a matter of sensitivity to significant dates. As players in this hobby, we are moving chits around that represent thousands of people and though nobody obviously dies, wargaming frequently deals with historical events and it’s something we need to be aware of. Tim would frequently muse in his articles or bring it up in interviews with developers – to paraphrase, what we’re doing for “fun” is essentially turning some very dark times in human history into entertainment, and to what extent should we be aware of that? Should we want to simulate “playing” as Germany to conquer Europe, which in the real world resulted in tens of millions of innocent and not-so-innocent people dying? It’s a tough conversation to have and Tim chose to engage with it, which probably put him offside with some of his readers, because it’s a topic that actually genuinely is bringing politics into gaming, unlike a lot of the gaming discourse.
A journalist is booted off a fictional radio for being a bit TERFy, resulting in a journalist being booted off a website for being a bit TERFy.
The inciting incident for this drama is an article posted in 2020 about a UK journalist who was one of several used by game developer Ubisoft to provide voiceovers for the video game Watch Dogs Legion. In the article, it is revealed that this journalist had in the past posted a 2017 The Times article titled “A man can’t just say he has turned into a woman.”
What is TERF? Trans-Exclusionary Radical Feminist, which probably spiked the Google charts more recently with The Author Who Shall Not Be Named. I will add this disclaimer, I am inferring things about Tim when I call him a TERF, and maybe I’m giving too much credit. I don’t know if Tim Stone is a feminist, so I’m giving the benefit of the doubt, and I wear that. The author of The Times article is a self-proclaimed feminist, and does claim to support trans right, but according to the RPS article, “(She) uses familiar hand-wringing about biological sex, transgender identification as a trend, and people with penises in women's changing rooms.” I’ll leave it up to your judgement whether you think either is an actual TERF or not.
In an unusual move, one Tim Stone showed up in the comments of the above article, and that’s the meat of this drama.
The Alamo but with TERFs.
The comments, as you can imagine, were completely chill since obviously “censoring” a “journalist” in a “video game” for “anti-trans views” outside of the game itself is just the perfect intersection of everything political on an internet forum possible. (The voiceover in the game was scripted by Ubisoft and was itself not an issue; they were choosing to remove the voiceover to remove association with the journalist based on their views.)
One user wrote:
there are diverse voices within RPS when it comes to games, genres, preferences etc but I would say (and i’d be prepared to be challenged on this) there is zero diversity in respect of political views and arguable groupthink and alignment particularly around trans issues.
To which Tim opined:
There's at least one regular RPS contributor who'd like to see the site show a little more respect for the gender critical position in the trans rights debate. Me.
He proceeded to link several articles, saying,
I agree with all those arguing for more constructive discussion and less name-calling in this debate.
And we’re off to the races.
One commenter wrote:
never mind 'gender critical' being an obvious dogwhistle, it boggles the mind that you think "trans rights debate" is an acceptable string of words in 2020
trans rights are human rights, this shit isn't a debate
And significantly, it wasn’t just site users who were chiming in. Another writer for RPS came in guns blazing:
The "gender critical position" is tired snivelling cowardice hiding behind Very Real Concerns while throwing shit at the people whose lives are routinely treated like an intellectual excercise. [sic]
I am frankly embarrassed [sic] to see you repeating such dogwhistling bullshit. The obviously lying "I am cancelling my subscription!!!" oafs in here are one thing, but this is just sad.
What the writer was alluding to was the typical capital-G Gamer response to anything political (and often something is only “political” if they don’t like it), namely “Get your politics out of my video games.” Often the corollary of that was “..or I’m getting out of your website.”
The inciting article is itself tame. Incredibly tame. As referenced earlier, it has the usual games journalism scent of just dressing up a press release. At the most judgemental, they referenced that the voiceover-providing journalist had “some pretty ugly opinions about transgender people” and “that’s decidedly not neat,” which is just the lovely understatement you get from British people. “This is a bit bothersome” was, I believe, repeatedly uttered during the Blitz.
I won’t bore with copying over more comments, but it gets quite heated – although Tim seems to remain quite collected in the comments, which does have an air that he isn’t aware of what kind of hornet’s nest he’s kicked. The most noteworthy exchange is between a user and Tim, where the user writes:
It is distressing that you think my rights as a trans person are subject to some sort of "trans rights debate," and that "gender critical" is anything but a dog whistle for the same transphobic rhetoric as I've always been subject to, but now behind a veneer of intellectualism and civil discourse.
This isn't a matter of left and right, it's a matter of respect for other human beings. Good to know at least one RPS writer has none for me.
And Tim’s response:
I have profound respect for you and your life choices.
I also believe that questions like "Should trans women be allowed to compete in female sports?" and "Should male-bodied trans women be housed in womens' prisons?" are worthy of debate.
To forbid all debate on "trans rights" and to seek to silence and cancel people who don't unquestioningly support one side of the argument seems horribly totalitarian to me.
If you were to take an unfriendly view of Tim, this might be it – calling a person’s transition a “life choice”, and then putting the question of trans rights up for debate, calling the desire not to debate someone’s human rights “totalitarian.”
In all, Tim would comment eight times, with his last being:
Some proposed trans rights clash with women's rights in certain areas. It is not bigoted to point this out or advocate debate so that compromises can be reached.
Overrunning the drop zone.
Five days later, the RPS Twitter account posts this tweet.
Trans rights are human rights. We strive to create an inclusive space for all people. Earlier this week, a freelancer used the RPS comments section to express views that failed in that goal. We will no longer be working with this freelancer or publishing their column.
And just like that, the flares are snuffed and Tim’s time at RPS comes to an abrupt end after 13 years of service.
The responses, I’m sure you can imagine, are the usual volleys from the usual battle lines. Left-wing and trans rights people are chuffed to bits, believing that an insidious TERF has been weeded out from RPS. They view his comments about bathrooms and sports as the usual dogwhistle, typical of the alt-right where the goal is to draw increasingly smaller circles to exclude trans people from one thing after another until they ultimately cannot exist in society. Gamers with a right-wing focus and wargamers (and those are not mutually exclusive) try to cancel culture RPS, many declaring that they’d never return to the site for this grave injustice. And for wargamers, that’s pretty easy; Tim was the only one catering to their genre appetite, and there literally was no reason to return without Tim. The most vanilla response was those who didn’t care about the comment section conflict at all and just wanted their dang wargaming news.
(The wargaming audience was not exclusively on the right-wing - the creator of one of the biggest wargaming podcasts showed up in the comments too, and took a distinctly anti-Tim and pro-trans stance.)
The last (spoilers, not really) article posted by Tim was a typical A2Z column, and became somewhat of a shrine to him. Of note, the very user to whom Tim gave his perhaps most damning response showed up:
Please don't assume Tim is a TERF. I was involved, and indeed in lots of was responsible for what happened on the other forum which i am devastated by.
I am trans and Tim replied in support of a view that i expressed! He shared some views and links to articles (including one from a trans blogger) that many people (including many trans people) would agree with. And even if they didn't, and Alison below articulates the position better than i could, its not like he went on an alt right tirade. This is a reasonable person making reasonable views very politely and and commenter whether they agreed with those or not has gained nothing from what happened subsequently, and we have all collectively lost something.
Flare Path fans were somewhat split. The most mild responses were critical of RPS for how they booted Tim out the door without a second chance; some were concerned that it’s not a great way to win allies and convince people. Throw in the usual snippets: “cancel culture” and references to “The Inquisition”, and a number of people saying their farewells to RPS. In an odd way – and I did it myself by calling this a shrine – the comment section really does feel like the man died, with some outright coming to, quote, “pay their respects”.
Of particular note, a user named hms_pepperpot shows up, and it looks like it’s Tim. I have no evidence to the contrary and the phrasing is close enough that I’m willing to believe it. But wait, Tim was posting as Tim Stone in the inflamed comment section, right? Yep, the divorce was so swift and decisive that they even blocked his access to his old username, or deleted it entirely – either way, he was in the comments to say goodbye under an alias.
Leaving RPS without being able to say a proper goodbye to you, the readers who have made my job such a joy this past thirteen years, has been one of the most depressing aspects of the last few days. Your enthusiasm was as important to The Flare Path's modest success as the complete creative freedom Graham afforded me. Thank you for making possible the happiest years of my working life.
While the Flare Path name is destined for the scrap heap, the concept and spirit of the column will hopefully live on. I'm planning to pick up pretty much where I left off early in the new year. An article devoted to the FP game jam entries will be amongst the first pieces I post. Of course, there will be foxers too.
To readers hurt by my words last weekend, all I can say is a heartfelt sorry - I didn't set out to wound and have no wish whatsoever to make the lives of trans people more difficult. To readers baffled by the comments that ended up costing me my job, I strongly recommend reading a thoughtful essay written by Sam Smethers, the CEO of respected British women's rights charity The Fawcett Society. Google 'Sex and Gender Indentity: Finding a Way Forward' and you should find it.
See you in 2021 I hope. Tim.
Of note, HMS Pepperpot is a reference to warship HMS Penelope. With Tim’s penchant for riddles and puzzles, it is not likely a coincidence that:
On wartime service with Force K, she was holed so many times by bomb fragments that she acquired the nickname "HMS Pepperpot".
Though Tim had some in agreement with his views in the inciting comment section, he was undoubtedly outnumbered and taking a lot of flak.
Napoleon’s exile on Elba.
Some time later, Tim would resurface on a new site of his own creation, Tally-Ho Corner. Very much The Flare Path with a new coat of paint, he would carry on with his regular columns on a weekly basis. The Foxers returned, as did A2Z and communal wargaming. RPS, for their part, did not seem to fight to keep the column to themselves. There was a small exodus as RPS had once been a PC gaming site with a wargaming/simulation column, to just a PC gaming site. Those with only an interest in those genres left; there was nothing for them anymore. An unknown number followed Tim to his new endeavour and made themselves known over there. Striking out on his own has costs, however, and Tim sells membership and banner space to those who wish to help out. He has made follow-up requests since Tally-Ho Corner started which would indicate that it isn’t a profitable venture; he says he only wants enough to support the site, and seems to be happy to continue for the love of the hobby. He has alluded to the site not breaking even, so you can infer from that what you want about the size of the Flare Path exodus. Like I said, it’s a very niche hobby, so even 100% of Flare Path readers might not constitute a large number. One of the posts with the most engagements is a community vote on the best PC wargames; two years old, it has 144 comments and a closed comment section, so you could probably extrapolate a rough guess on readers versus commenters to see how popular the site is.
Tim would make the occasional comment about his past misadventure, but generally seemed to just carry on. Others would fight for or against him in other corners of the internet, but publicly, Tim seemed done with the whole thing and happy to just get back to writing about games.
The most blatant reference was an A2Z at the start of this year. No longer than any other entry (remember, he’s filling out 26 entries in a week, they’re usually just snippets), the entry “P is for Pointless provocation” in its entirety:
If, after my bruising departure from RPS in 2020, I had decided to start work on a “cathartic” retro FPS about gunning down dogmatic ‘trans allies’, I hope someone – a friend, colleague, or family member – would have taken me to one side and said “Tim, WTF are you doing?”. Unfortunately, no-one seems to have urged Norwegian coder Sandra Moen to think again. If they had perhaps the nasty Terfenstein 3D wouldn’t have made it onto Steam.
Tim’s back, baby! But it’s not him! But it is!
In a strange, quite dickish move, an RPS writer recycled an old Flare Path to come up with “The 25 best simulation games on PC”, with the writer credited… even though it was copied from Tim’s 2015 article. Tim called it out in an A2Z, as “H is for Hire a new sim correspondent, you cheapskates”, and that really sums it up – they were not rewriting the list, rearranging it, or updating it, they were literally copying the original list over and slapping a new author’s name on it.
If you click the above link, you’ll see that the article now has Tim as the author, changed retroactively (again). That in itself added a new element of drama, as readers who showed up after the edit were surprised by a new article from Mr Flare Path himself. Though it says “updated” in 2022, the giveaway is that the comments are predominantly from 7 years ago, when it was originally posted. One commenter, who I’ll take at their word, seemed to be witnessing the Stalin-esque rewriting of history in real time:
Wow, I just saw that Tim Stone's name has been removed. He was there as author when I first saw it this morning, with a note about it being updated by someone else. Now his name has been fully removed as the original author. I don't know what to say, but it feels icky to rewrite history like that, very 1984.
Update - now it says article by Holly, Additional Contributions by Tim Stone. Still not accurate (seems to be the reverse or reality) but at least the original author's name is in there somewhere again.
(Not calling anyone over there a tyrant or communist or anything, merely referencing that infamous photo where people are removed one by one as they fall afoul of the Stalin regime. In this instance, taking Tim’s work and crediting to someone else, then crediting Tim in addition to the new writer, then finally just calling it a Tim article.)
People noticed that the “updated” tag was the last attempt to hide in plain sight, since there was nothing updated about the list. It was identical to the one posted by Tim in 2015. And the clue was that, according to RPS, no simulation game had managed to crack the list since 2015; the “youngest” game on the list was 7 years old (now 8), a title shared by Farming Simulator 15 and Train Simulator 15.
15, of course, being the year both games released and the year Tim wrote the list.
An odd move to dig up the bones of the past, both the article and Tim’s involvement with RPS, for a single cheap parlour trick. Needless to say, if you search for Tim Stone contributions on RPS now, his “shrine” – a pretty typical A2Z Flare Path – is not his most recent contribution to the site. Instead, it’s “The 25 best simulation games on PC” from 8 years ago.
Fittingly, in the comment section below, the most recent post is by someone seemingly oblivious to the drama surrounding Tim Stone, RPS and trans rights. They’re instead complaining that two other motor racing games were left off the list. And really, there’s probably no better tribute to the community.

2023.06.01 05:36 lovecatsx Steps I'm taking to leave Nparents again.

Hi. Second post here. I was feeling suicidal during last post. I have since gathered my thoughts and safety planned.

I've been back at Nparents house for 2 months. I'm a 31 year old woman. I turned up here after about 6 years no contact. I used to post here years ago under a throwaway account.
I really had no option at the time, due leaving a black moudly motel, to the housing crisis, lack of sleep, bouncing around places, sexual assaults and being at risk of further, etc. I just wanted to lay down and stay in one place with my cat for at least a few days. Here I am 2 months later!
However, I am NOT an underweight scared little girl anymore, that they brought me up as, with no knowledge of what abuse is, what my rights are, what safety planning is, etc. I know ALL about all of these things.
I have come back a very strong, street smart, resilient and resourceful woman. I am using the skills and knowledge I gained being homeless, leaving abusive boyfriends, etc to my benefit to get out of Narc mums house sooner!
Narc mum was calm the first few weeks then reverted back to her usual narc behaviour; verbal abuse escalated. The house is full of cameras in and out. She abuses my dad. I don't care that she abuses him, since he chose to stay with her all these years, letting her subject me and other sisters to abuse. I care that I never say a say being born into this. I will never ever forgive him for that. Probably a narc himself. I don't trust him either.
I suffer depression being back here (and ptsd) but won't let myself and my cat stay here long term again like how I grew up. I have a plan in place, along with further steps I'm taking to get out, and hopefully prevent myself from ever returning. Even though I am not out again yet I hope this post helps somebody else also living in narc abuse (domestic and family violence)!
These are the steps I've taken over the last 2 months since being back:
  1. Contacted social housing, along with housing organisations. I have applied, and my application is pending to to housing crisis, pending time frame, etc. I call them often. Any places I do get th address will be kept private from narc parents. I will tell them I've left once I've actually left.
  2. I have saved private rentals on real estate that I will also apply for. Again any new address will be kept private from narc parents. Will NOT be informing them I'm applying for private rentals, nor tell them when/where I get a place.
  3. I have created a new work resume on my own, which looks great. My therapist printed the copies for me at her office. I can't access help from centrelink job provider due to being on a medical exemption. That's why I'm printing things at therapist office.
  4. I have purchased a new good brand phone (my other was breaking). I will use this for uber app for safety, cam/vid to record abuse if needed, emergency calls, social, job applications/calls, calling housing etc. May seem like a small step, but super important having a fast reliable phone.
  5. I have safety planned with an abuse hotline, and know of shelters in this city even by name and suburb, if she escalates to physcial abuse like she has in the past. I also know of which organisations (pets in crisis via RSPCA) to put my cat temporality if needed while I get out and back on my feet. I prefer to use this as a last resort though. But being aware of this and having a plan helps.
  6. A few days ago I opened a PO BOX for my mail. This is usually $313 including esbalishment fee, key, mail redirection and 2 years worth of box rental, but I managed to get this for free by applying via special circumstances/DV victim. I just had to take in a copy of a restraining order of previous ex boyfriend, No mail will be sent to former address, nor parents address. This keeps my mail in one safe spot, away from narc mother. I can still use this post after I get out of here as well.
7.Grey rocking, not reacting to her abuse. It sucks. I stood up for myself verbally and called out of BS already a few times since being back, but it just makes her worse. I now play dumb, dont engage/react to the verbal. However if she touches me (or my cat) I wil leave ASAP to keep me and cat safe. She hasn't touches us yet. That's why I'm trying to get out before it even happens!
  1. I have purchased some homewares for when I find an apartment. This includes bedding, a bit of pink wall art, kettle and kitchen things. Much more is needed
  2. To follow up with the homewares step, I will be opening a storage unit to store all of these things without telling Narc mother. I plan to also buy and store furniture there, as well. So that my cat and I don't have to move into an empty apartment. The reason for this is because this way she won't know when I'm leaving (I won't be moving things in front of her, or in front of her cameras while she's out), AND she cannot try to steal, or break my things in narc rages once she realises I'm leaving. I can just leave with my handbag and cat.
  3. I may purchase a cheap car in a few months, and if I do, I will be storing the car in a storage unit as well (one for cars), as my narc mother already told me if I get a car while living with her I can go live in my cat (her jealousy and need for control) so I will NOT be letting her know of any car I purchase, and will be storing it away from her in safekeeping (unit)
  4. I am going to job interviews and trying to find work while living here, so I can save my money. I am also saving Centrelink/welfare money. I'll go and work nights as a dancer if I need to!
  5. I have informed my long-term therapist about the situation and will also be informing my doctor as well. They take down notes, and I will use this if needed for a restraining order against narc mum once I leave. I will also use this if she contacts police or reports me missing OR tries to have my admitted to a mental hospital as she has tried in the past.
  6. I am medicated, in therapy, and have advocates now. If she ever pulls that BS I WILL be informing police I have left FAMILY VIOLENCE, that she is my ABUSER trying to use police to regain control of me, and I WILL be making a police report, and filing for a restraining order. I will NOT have her try to use emergency services to perpetrate her abuse and control against me.
  7. I AIN'T PLAYING. I'm not gonna have her play around with me this time around, she can go do her little gossip and smear campaigns, calling me unstable, ungrateful and all that, I'll let her have that, but she ain't gonna be messing up my escape, and recovery. I'm getting out and going to get myself in such a good position I'm never going to have to EVER return here.

2023.06.01 05:30 G0dlessandHuman Said I could be poly to save it

Cross posted in the infidelity sub.
He said we could still be together if I went poly.
When I meet my STBXH I was honest and up front about it bisexuality. When he asked me to marry him (we bought a washedryer instead of a ring) I was over the moon, I had found my true love, I found my great love.
Little did I know the affairs started right after we married..
So during our 18 years together, he would ask for 3somes, Introduce me to women, and sometimes I would say yes and we would fuck once or twice before I wanted my husband for me.
Only 1 person, was ever on my I would be poly for them list.
Now that I filed for divorce because I found out about another affair, after I thought we were really working on our marriage. (17 year anniversary married anniversary June).
We can have about I coversation every few days before my anxiety kicks up and I spriral. He still wants to be friends and go to concerts, co- parent (be the fun dad with AP).
I am talking with friends who agree, that if you start a marriage without stating that your poly then you can't be telling people your in an open marriage and poly. I was honest and willing to let him be my ham for life.
I felt so invisible to him for a while, I don't think I could have agreed to be poly and see him love someone else when he was supposed to love me.
Now that he has a lawyer, and I do too, and it's officially dead. He wants to sell the house to his AP and her polycule. I can't, I can't let them live here...
So I am trying to find closure and move fort for the kids. But fuck this is hard.
I don't want his dick to be the last I experience, especially since I wasn't his last.
I'm afraid to even star on dating sites, not until the divorce is final. I don't know how to even flirt in bisexual (that's a joke between me and my lgbt kid).
I can't believe this is happening to me.
I just agreed to sell the house, he is lawyer told him to move out. I was told to stay in the home until the divorce is final.
I need time to get my finances in order, I just have so much uncertainty. But I refuse to accept being comfortable for love.

2023.06.01 05:15 ISTof1897 LPT Request: What are some ways you’ve helped to maximize space in a small kitchen?

Here’s some of mine. Not affiliated with any linked products. All links are Amazon.
In the future I’d like to add some long shelves along the walls surrounding the dinner table to hold my larger pots and pans. Would love to hear any other ideas on saving (or cheaply/easily adding) counter space as my counter space is limited as I’m in a 1,200 sq ft starter home.
  1. Adding a compact knife drawer organizer.
  2. Adding a compact silverware organizer.
  3. Repainting an old dresser, adding rolling wheels (cheap at hardware store) and using it as a pantry for more shelf space.
  4. Using beesoda can flats to organize loose or smaller items in dresser mentioned in #3.
  5. Storing large pots above my shelves near the ceiling.
  6. Using pots that I don’t often use as utensil storage.
  7. Using a coffee can or tin can to store smaller utensils that are extras such as extra fork and knives or serving utensils that have odd shapes and don’t fit will in my silverware organizer.

2023.06.01 05:08 CougerHuntar Tainted Ambitions

CHP1: Robyn Charlemagne, a vivacious 18-year-old with cascading chestnut curls, slipped through the smoky haze of the private back room in a popular southern California nightclub. The room was cloaked in an air of mystery, its walls adorned with crimson velvet curtains and dimly lit by chandeliers dripping with crystal teardrops. The soft strains of jazz music floated through the air, mingling with the raucous laughter and clinking glasses from the main club area. Tonight, the clientele was a sea of fancy dress and inebriated youth, their inhibitions drowned in the intoxicating mix of alcohol and euphoria.
Robyn, dressed in a figure-hugging black cocktail dress, had dreams of becoming a successful actress. However, her current reality consisted of serving patrons in the upscale restaurant known as "The Golden Elysium," where the elite of Hollywood often dined. It was a place where whispers of fame and fortune danced in the air, mingling with the scent of truffle-infused delicacies.
Meanwhile, Caspian Mortcombe, a dashing and enigmatic film producer in his early thirties, cut a striking figure amidst the crowd. With his commanding presence and sharp jawline, he exuded an air of regal authority. Caspian had recently acquired a reputation for his underground noir films, casting a shadow on the mainstream industry. In search of fresh talent for his next project, he found himself drawn to the allure of this bustling nightclub.
Robyn's naive charm and captivating beauty caught Caspian's discerning eye, and he saw potential in her untapped talent. As he approached her, his dark eyes pierced through her, conveying both power and dominance. He wore an impeccably tailored suit, an extension of his personality, that spoke volumes about his wealth and influence.
The room was guarded by a bouncer, known simply as "Big John." A towering figure with a shaved head and a muscular build, he was a black mountain of strength. Caspian had made sure to slip him some extra cash to ensure their privacy in this secluded space. Big John maintained a watchful eye, ensuring no interruptions disturbed the affairs unfolding within these velvet-draped walls.
As Caspian engaged Robyn in conversation, his magnetic presence captivated her impressionable heart. The allure of the silver screen beckoned, and Robyn found herself drawn into Caspian's web. He regaled her with tales of his past successes, painting a vivid picture of a world far beyond the glimmering lights of the nightclub. Robyn's airheadedness and dreams of stardom made her susceptible to Caspian's charm, her aspirations blinding her to the underlying motives driving his interest.
Their encounter unfolded against the backdrop of a time when grunge music and flannel shirts defined the alternative culture of Southern California. It was a world where wild house parties and underground clubs whispered secrets of rebellion and freedom, carving out a space for artistic expression in the heart of an industry dominated by conformity.
In this dimly lit room, where dreams clashed with reality, Robyn and Caspian's lives collided. The stage was set for a seductive dance of power, ambition, and manipulation, the boundaries between desire and exploitation blurred. Little did Robyn know that this encounter would mark the beginning of a twisted journey, a tale woven with passion, deceit, and shattered dreams.
As the night wore on, and the echoes of jazz music faded into the early morning hours, Robyn and Caspian found themselves tangled in a dangerous game, oblivious to the consequences lurking in the shadows. And behind the velvet curtains, the secrets of the night whispered their unholy promise, sealing their fates in a world where passion and ambition intermingled, where nothing was as it seemed.
The private back room had become a secret haven for Robyn and Caspian. Their clandestine meetings unfolded like a carefully choreographed dance, fueled by their shared desires and ambitions. Robyn's infatuation with Caspian grew with each passing day, as he expertly played the role of mentor and seducer.
Caspian, aware of Robyn's impressionable nature, used his position of power to mold her into his ideal actress. Under his tutelage, she blossomed, her raw talent and beauty refined through his guidance. He pushed her limits, pushing her to explore the darkest corners of her emotions, blurring the line between fiction and reality.
As Robyn's days at "The Golden Elysium" turned into a blur of serving plates and nodding at patrons, her nights became an intoxicating whirlwind of auditions, rehearsals, and stolen moments with Caspian. The boundaries of their relationship were hazy, a web of desire, control, and artistic collaboration.
Meanwhile, the enigmatic Big John kept a watchful eye, guarding their secrets as if they were his own. His imposing presence served as a constant reminder of the shadows lurking behind their glamorous facade. Caspian had ensured their privacy with a hefty sum, and Big John remained steadfast in his loyalty.
CHP2: One fateful evening, as the neon lights of the nightclub flickered outside, Robyn found herself alone in the back room. Caspian had promised her an important announcement, one that would change the course of her life forever. The anticipation hung heavy in the air as she waited, her heart pounding with a mixture of excitement and trepidation.
The door swung open, revealing Caspian's commanding figure. His eyes, usually filled with intensity, now held a hint of vulnerability. Robyn sensed a shift in their dynamic, a subtle change that made her pulse quicken.
"Robyn," Caspian began, his voice tinged with emotion, "I've secured a role for you in my next film. It's a daring, provocative project that will challenge your limits as an actress."
Robyn's eyes widened with delight and apprehension. She had longed for this moment, to step into the spotlight and leave her mark on the silver screen. But as Caspian detailed the role, she couldn't shake the nagging feeling that something was amiss. The character was complex, enigmatic, and dangerously close to mirroring her own life.
As rehearsals commenced, Robyn found herself diving headfirst into the depths of her character's psyche. The lines blurred further, reality intertwining with fiction in a dizzying dance of passion and manipulation. Caspian's influence over her grew stronger, his control tightening like a vice around her fragile dreams.
But as Robyn delved deeper into her role, the shadows surrounding Caspian began to unravel. Whispers of his questionable tactics and dubious alliances reached her ears, casting doubt upon their once-promising collaboration. The world of underground noir cinema revealed itself to be a treacherous labyrinth of deceit and power plays.
And so, Robyn stood at a crossroads, torn between her burning desire for fame and the nagging doubts that gnawed at her conscience. The allure of the silver screen had drawn her into a dangerous game, one where the line between passion and exploitation was blurred beyond recognition.
CHP3: Robyn stood before the ornate vanity mirror, her reflection fragmented in a sea of gleaming glass. The weight of uncertainty pressed upon her shoulders as she prepared for another day of shooting Caspian's provocative film. The character she portrayed consumed her, merging with her own identity until she could no longer distinguish where the role ended and she began.
On set, the atmosphere crackled with tension. Caspian's domineering presence loomed, his eyes scrutinizing every movement, every line delivered by the actors. The crew whispered in hushed tones about the mysterious underbelly of Caspian's productions, tales of compromising compromises and blurred ethical lines.
As the cameras rolled, Robyn surrendered herself to the role, surrendering her soul to the art of deception. The character demanded sacrifice, extracting fragments of her true self with each take. The passionate scenes with her co-star ignited a tempestuous fire within her, further blurring the boundaries of reality.
Yet, amidst the chaos, Robyn's intuition screamed for her to break free from Caspian's grasp. Doubts gnawed at her spirit, reminding her of the stories she had heard, the warnings whispered by those who had fallen victim to Caspian's manipulations. But her dreams of stardom held her captive, the allure of fame weaving a seductive spell around her vulnerable heart.
One evening, after a particularly intense scene, Robyn found herself alone in the dimly lit corridor outside her dressing room. She gazed at her reflection in a nearby mirror, searching for traces of the girl she used to be. Her eyes, once bright with innocence, now reflected a flicker of uncertainty and defiance.
As if summoned by her thoughts, the door to her dressing room creaked open, revealing Caspian's imposing figure. His face, once a mask of control, betrayed a glimpse of vulnerability. He took a hesitant step toward her, his voice tinged with a mixture of regret and desperation.
"Robyn, I never meant for it to be like this," Caspian began, his voice laced with a fragile sincerity. "I have made mistakes, pushed boundaries, but it was all in pursuit of creating something truly extraordinary."
Robyn's heart wavered, torn between the remnants of affection she held for Caspian and the growing realization of the toxic dynamic that had ensnared her. She mustered the strength to meet his gaze, her voice filled with a newfound determination.
"Caspian, I can no longer ignore the whispers that surround you," she declared, her words resonating with newfound courage. "I refuse to be a pawn in your game, sacrificing my sanity and self-worth for the sake of art."
Caspian's face contorted with a mix of anger and desperation, his grip on control slipping like sand through his fingers. He pleaded, his voice desperate and raw.
"Robyn, you don't understand," he whispered, his eyes pleading for forgiveness. "I can make you a star. I can give you everything you've ever dreamed of."
But Robyn's resolve remained unshaken. She stepped back, reclaiming her autonomy, her voice steady and unwavering.
"I'd rather carve my own path, even if it means sacrificing the fame you promise," she asserted, her spirit ignited with a newfound sense of liberation.
As Robyn walked away from the suffocating grip of Caspian's influence, a weight lifted from her shoulders. She embraced the uncertainty of the future, determined to forge her own destiny in a world where art and integrity could coexist.
CHP4: Robyn's decision to break free from Caspian's grip marked a turning point in her life, but the aftermath was far from the fairy tale she had envisioned. The offers that flooded in were not the golden opportunities she had dreamed of but instead invitations to auditions for seedy productions that prized her physical attributes over her talent.
Determined to make a name for herself on her own terms, Robyn reluctantly stepped into the world of auditions, finding herself in dimly lit rooms with questionable characters. One such audition led her to the doorstep of "The Velvet Rose," a small production company that specialized in adult films masquerading as art.
The setting was a dilapidated warehouse, transformed into a makeshift studio adorned with flickering neon lights and tattered velvet curtains. The air hung heavy with the scent of stale cigarettes and cheap perfume. Robyn, dressed in a simple black dress that contrasted with the flamboyant costumes around her, entered the room with a mix of trepidation and determination.
The director, a sleazy middle-aged man named Marcus, oozed an air of false charm as he beckoned Robyn forward. His leering gaze made her skin crawl, but she swallowed her discomfort, determined to prove her talent transcended the grim circumstances.
The audition scene called for Robyn to showcase vulnerability, to bare her soul under the guise of artistry. As she performed, her words filled the room, carrying a poignant truth that momentarily silenced Marcus's predatory gaze. But the spell was broken as Marcus cut her off, his expression morphing into a lewd smirk.
"Not bad, sweetheart," he sneered. "But let's see if you're as good in other... aspects."
Robyn's heart sank as she realized the true nature of this production. She had unwittingly stumbled into a den of exploitation, where talent and integrity took a backseat to the basest desires. With a sense of resignation and a flicker of defiance, she mustered the strength to walk away, leaving behind the suffocating atmosphere of "The Velvet Rose."
Undeterred, Robyn sought auditions in different corners of the industry, hoping to find a glimpse of genuine artistic expression. But time and again, she encountered the same bleak reality—a world where her talent was overshadowed by the allure of her physicality.
In a seedy underground theater called "The Midnight Masquerade," Robyn found herself surrounded by performers who had long lost their dreams to a cycle of vice and indulgence. The stage was set for a twisted cabaret, where darkness and desire entwined in a grotesque ballet of desperation.
The director, a jaded man named Vincent, exuded an air of faded glamour as he navigated the tangled web of his performers' lives. Each audition felt like a performance within a performance, as Robyn tried to impress Vincent while disguising her own crumbling spirit. But the allure of the Midnight Masquerade was tainted, a haunting reminder that her journey had taken a detour into a world she never anticipated.
Robyn's encounters with these seedy production groups became a mirror of her own unraveling dreams. With each rejection, she felt the weight of compromise pressing upon her, threatening to extinguish the spark that had once ignited her passion for acting.
As Robyn navigated the grim underbelly of the industry, she found solace in the fragments of genuine connections she forged with fellow actors. In the midst of this dark landscape, she discovered kindred spirits who yearned for artistic integrity as fervently as she did. Together, they formed a small collective, vowing to support one another and create their own path forward, away from the shadows that had swallowed their dreams.
CHP5: The collective formed by Robyn and her fellow actors had become a lifeline in the tumultuous world of seedy auditions and compromised dreams. Their bond grew stronger with each passing day, their shared experiences forging an unbreakable connection. They sought solace in late-night conversations, their voices echoing through dimly lit cafes and hidden speakeasies.
Amidst their collective struggle, a glimmer of hope appeared on the horizon—an opportunity to perform at "The Twilight Theater," a renowned establishment known for its commitment to artistic excellence. The theater's marquee, adorned with sparkling lights, beckoned to those who craved authenticity in a world of smoke and mirrors.
Excitement filled the air as Robyn and her companions prepared for their debut on the Twilight stage. The backstage area buzzed with energy, costumes strewn about, makeup artists applying final touches to anxious faces. The scent of anticipation mingled with the hum of the crowd beyond the velvet curtains.
But fate, with its capricious nature, had other plans in store. A sudden tragedy struck, shattering the camaraderie that had blossomed within the collective. A devastating fire ravaged the Twilight Theater, reducing it to ashes and tears. Dreams were shattered in the inferno, leaving Robyn and her companions adrift, the ties that bound them abruptly severed.
Heartbroken and alone, Robyn found herself forced back into the seedy underbelly of the industry. Necessity became her cruel mistress, driving her to take a job on a film so deplorable that even the darkest corners of her imagination could not have conjured its horrors.
The production was called "Crimson Temptation," a vile amalgamation of exploitation and degradation. The set resembled a dilapidated warehouse, its once grandeur now decayed and repurposed for the darkest desires. The stench of desperation clung to the air, mingling with the sweat and despair of the cast and crew.
Robyn's character, Amelia, was a pawn in the hands of a sadistic director named Donovan. His presence exuded a sinister charm, his eyes gleaming with malevolence as he reveled in his perverse creation. Donovan's demands pushed Robyn to the brink, forcing her to perform acts that violated her soul, leaving her feeling tainted and broken.
In the depths of her despair, Robyn's spirit flickered like a dying ember, but a spark of resilience remained. She clung to it fiercely, finding solace in the memory of the collective she had lost. Their voices echoed in her mind, reminding her of the strength she possessed, urging her to fight against the chains that bound her.
With each degrading scene, Robyn's determination grew, transforming her pain into a simmering rage. She saw through the facade of "Crimson Temptation," recognizing it for what it truly was—a testament to the darkest aspects of human desire. And in that recognition, she vowed to reclaim her power and break free from its suffocating grip.
CHP6: The dimly lit alley behind the decrepit warehouse where "Crimson Temptation" was filmed served as an unlikely backdrop for an unexpected encounter. Robyn, her spirit bruised but not broken, found herself face-to-face with Caspian Mortcombe, the man who had once held both her dreams and her heart in his hands.
Their reunion crackled with tension, emotions swirling in the air like a storm waiting to break. The flickering streetlamp cast shadows across Caspian's chiseled features, emphasizing the intensity in his dark eyes. Robyn, defensive yet filled with a longing she couldn't deny, met his gaze with equal fire.
"You've stooped to new depths, Robyn," Caspian stated, his voice laced with a mixture of disappointment and concern. "Reducing yourself to this—"
Robyn cut him off, her voice tinged with regret and defiance. "You don't understand, Caspian. I never wanted this, but I had no choice. I'm fighting to survive in a world that's swallowed my dreams whole."
Caspian stepped closer, his voice softening with a mix of understanding and lingering desire. "I know the darkness of this industry, the compromises it demands. But you're capable of so much more, Robyn. I've seen it in you."
Their eyes locked, the intensity of their connection reigniting a long-buried flame. Robyn's heart yearned for Caspian's touch, his presence a reminder of the passion they once shared. A surge of desire pulsed through her veins, drowning out the doubts that had plagued her.
In that dimly lit alley, surrounded by the remnants of broken dreams, Robyn and Caspian gave in to their shared longing. Their bodies pressed against one another, their lips finding solace in a forbidden embrace. The raw electricity that had always existed between them crackled to life once more, their connection transcending the boundaries of reason and consequence.
As their bodies intertwined, the weight of their past dissolved, leaving only the present moment—their shared desire, their mutual understanding of the sacrifices made in the pursuit of their dreams. In that stolen moment, they found solace in one another, a respite from the darkness that threatened to consume them.
But as their passion ebbed and reality seeped back in, Robyn pulled away, a mixture of longing and regret etched upon her face. "We can't keep doing this, Caspian," she whispered, her voice filled with resignation. "The world we live in won't allow it."
Caspian's eyes bore into her, a mix of anguish and determination. "I refuse to let the industry define us, Robyn. Together, we can rise above its darkness and create something extraordinary. We can reclaim our dreams."
Robyn's heart wavered, torn between the love she still held for Caspian and the need to protect herself from further pain. But in that moment, a glimmer of hope flickered within her, reigniting the fire of her dreams. Perhaps, against all odds, they could find a way to navigate the treacherous path of their desires, where passion and artistry intertwined.
CHP7: The California coastline stretched before them, the crashing waves a symphony of freedom. Robyn and Caspian, drawn together by an undeniable force, found solace in stolen moments, their time together becoming a refuge from the chaos of their respective lives.
They sought refuge in a quaint beach house, nestled amidst a picturesque landscape of sandy dunes and rolling waves. The scent of salt lingered in the air, mingling with the intoxicating fragrance of blooming flowers. Here, they could escape the prying eyes and suffocating expectations of the industry that had brought them together once again.
In the golden hues of twilight, Robyn's laughter filled the air as Caspian recounted tales of their shared past, his voice a balm to her weary soul. Their connection, forged in passion and ambition, had stood the test of time, its flame reigniting with a fervor that defied reason.
But as their blissful respite carried on, the producer of "Crimson Temptation," a man consumed by jealousy and greed, grew increasingly restless. Donovan, a ruthless figure with a penchant for control, confronted Caspian one evening, the tension between them palpable.
"What do you think you're doing, Mortcombe?" Donovan sneered, his voice laced with venom. "You think you can just steal my budding starlet and get away with it?"
Caspian met Donovan's gaze, his own eyes blazing with defiance. "I'm not stealing anyone, Donovan. Robyn is not a possession to be claimed. We have a connection that goes beyond the confines of this industry."
Donovan's face contorted with rage, his voice seething with a dangerous edge. "Mark my words, Mortcombe. If you continue down this path, you'll regret it. I have the power to destroy everything you hold dear."
Caspian stood tall, his voice steady and resolute. "You underestimate us, Donovan. Love and passion are stronger than any threat you can conjure. We will not be controlled by your darkness."
As Donovan stormed off, the threat hanging in the air like a noose, Caspian returned to Robyn's side, his presence a shield against the encroaching storm. Their bond deepened with each passing day, their love an anchor in the tempestuous sea of the entertainment world.
Together, they vowed to navigate the treacherous currents of the industry, to create art that spoke to their souls and defied the conventions that sought to confine them. They became each other's muse, igniting creativity and passion with a single glance or touch.
In the late hours of the night, as the moon cast a silvery glow over their entwined bodies, Caspian whispered words of adoration, his voice filled with a mixture of reverence and longing. Robyn, her heart brimming with love, echoed his sentiments, their declarations intertwining like the intricate brushstrokes of a masterpiece.
CHP8: The weight of the industry's demands and expectations bore down upon Robyn and Caspian, threatening to extinguish the flame of their love and creativity. But in the face of adversity, they made a daring decision—to break free from the clutches of the entertainment world and forge their own path.
In the quaint beach house that had become their sanctuary, Robyn and Caspian hatched a plan. They would take their art into their own hands, reclaiming their creative freedom and sidestepping the suffocating constraints of the industry. Their vision became clear—they would create intimate and authentic films, placing their work directly into the hands of their audience.
With trembling excitement and a sense of rebellious liberation, they embarked on their new venture. They turned to a platform called "OnlyFans," a place where they could showcase their films without compromise. It was a risk, a departure from the traditional avenues of success, but they held onto the belief that true artistry lay in the hands of those who were unafraid to challenge conventions.
The beach house became their makeshift studio, a haven where their visions could come to life. Robyn's natural beauty radiated as Caspian captured her essence through the lens of his camera. Each frame whispered of their connection, their love and creativity intertwined in a seamless dance.
As they released their first independent film on OnlyFans, their audience responded with an overwhelming embrace. Their work resonated with those hungry for raw emotion and unfiltered storytelling. Robyn and Caspian became a symbol of artistic rebellion, a beacon of authenticity in an industry plagued by artifice.
In the intimacy of their digital platform, Robyn and Caspian found solace and empowerment. They were no longer subject to the whims of producers or the suffocating demands of the industry. Their art was created on their own terms, nourished by the connection they shared and the unyielding passion that burned within them.
As their independent films gained recognition, they became pioneers, inspiring other artists to reclaim their voices and redefine the boundaries of creativity. Robyn and Caspian reveled in the knowledge that they had escaped the clutches of the industry, creating their own world of artistry and freedom.
In the twilight of the beach house, with the sound of crashing waves as their soundtrack, Robyn and Caspian made a vow to one another—a vow to continue defying expectations, to never compromise their artistic integrity, and to forever choose love over the trappings of fame and success.
Together, they embarked on a journey of self-discovery and creative fulfillment, their spirits entwined as they blazed a trail of artistic rebellion. Their love, once threatened by the darkness of the industry, had found a refuge in their shared passion and unwavering devotion.

2023.06.01 04:27 M0dusPwnens Disintegrating studs

I've never run into this problem before. I have a row of modular buildings on my counter that I've put together over the last three years (my COVID hobby), and I just went to move the Assembly Square on the end to dust behind it today, and it felt strange. The base was flexing more than I remember even just gently lifting it, and a few pieces popped off.
When I looked at where the pieces had been, the studs were completely ripped off. I very gently pulled up another flat piece from the plate, and the studs came off with it. When I pulled the broken-off stud out of the flat piece, it completely disintegrated between my fingertips. The surface seems to have a slight oily film.
The only things I can think of that happened nearby are:
  1. A cheap spray bottle of Mrs. Meyer's basic multipurpose cleaner on the part of the counter I cook on, but I never spray or wipe particularly near the Lego
  2. I oiled a cutting board with coconut oil nearby a couple of weeks ago
  3. The buildings are under a counter light that is on most of the time, but none of the other buildings under it seem affected, so that seems unlikely
The disintegration and those oily patches seem to have worked their way under a bunch of the bricks on the first layer, but I certainly didn't spill anything across the whole surface or anything like that. Could it have somehow wicked the oil or cleaner up? I've googled a bit and already sent in a support request, but wondering if anyone has any insight. It sucks to lose such an expensive set, but I'm worried about damaging the rest too.

2023.06.01 03:50 Narcissist-Narwhal Self Realization

I’m a single mother who wasn’t cut out for hard labor. I’m to ugly to do porn but I’m to pretty for Burger King. I’m just existing until opportunity comes into my life through the back door.
Let’s start somewhat in the beginning- I was born in Mendocino County California. Directly on the coast in Fort Bragg, on February 10th, 1998. I’m 25 years old, but I will leave the rest of the boring details of an uneventful and traumatic childhood for a different “poor me” post.
For now, I’m going to tell Reddit all about my chronic laziness problem and inflated expectations/ego. I need to tell someone in depth why it is that I get fed up with a aspiring relationship before I even go out with a man, but also, why it is that I can’t find a man that wants to put up with me for the rest of forever. Firstly, I not a worker, I have not ever thought about what I wanted to do in terms of a lifelong career because, well, that just seems like a really long time to have a job to me. I worked in the legal cannabis industry trimming weed for a distributor, but I started talking to this man on the dating app Plenty of Fish, one thing led to another and I quit my trimming job because I got offered an opportunity to “audition” for porn.
I didn’t have my own vehicle so I bought a greyhound ticket and told my mom I was going to meet a guy in the city to try out for a part in an adult film. I should mention that the man that I was going to see in the motel for my… interview lol… was not the man that I had talked to on Plenty of Fish, the guy on plenty of fish set me up with the opportunity to meet the guy in the hotel. My mom was obviously upset by the fact that I was so willingly to jump at this chance and didn’t even think twice about how I could probably end up getting murdered by this man-in- a-motel-room. So naturally, she drove me down to the city because she didn’t want to seem unsupportive and she got a room in the same hotel as me.
I probably don’t need to say this but I’m going to just in case some of us are a little slower than others… Yes, I slept with the potential murderer. He had me show him what I could do lol, my mom and I stayed in the city for two days while I was interviewed and then we left and he said he would put together a small script and work me into a part then he would get ahold of me when we were ready to film. If we are still a little behind, no, he never called me back with a script, I got porn catfished! I made an Onlyfans account after that and was in the 10% of creator’s for a long time, but it was hard to find and keep subscribers and my boyfriend at the time started focusing all of our content on his genitalia and that didn’t fly with my subscribers who came to see my solo content.
I know that I’m not a 10. I am fully aware of the fact that I am not all that and a bag of chips and I am definitely not everyone’s cup of tea because I’m probably a fat dab. In my own mind I’m pretty enough that one day I will find someone who will want to take care of me financially, put up with my bad ass attitude and accept the fact that my attitude will never change. I am the woman that will wake up with you everyday at 4:30 AM to make coffee and packs your lunch before sending you off to work. I will take care of the kids, do all the household chores and perform oral sex every night as long as I don’t have to work anymore, but I also won’t even consider a relationship with anyone I find less attractive than myself no matter how lavish the lifestyle and that has caused a dilemma.

2023.06.01 03:47 oneandonlyE 2008 Honda Accord, 2012 Honda Civic, 2006 Toyota RAV4?
Which one of these do you guys think is the best deal, just based off the listing? I’ve driven the Accord and the RAV4, they both drove pretty well. And I’ll probably test drive the Civic this weekend. They all have stuff I like about them but I’m mostly going for reliability and mpg. They all have better mpg than I get now, I drive a 98 Cherokee.

2023.06.01 03:20 KaySen762 Theory (contains light spoilers for episode 7)

Thought I would expand my theory and put it in a post. I believe the town underwent some nuclear testing in the 40s, and like the atom, was split into parts. The residents there went into a quantum state of neither being alive or dead and eventually ended up as the monsters we see now. Their clothes are from the 40s and they seemed to be dressed in uniforms that match the remaining buildings. A waitress from the diner, a gas station attendant, a wealthy man wearing a bow tie who most likely owned colony house. After the event they moved underground to avoid radiation perhaps, that is why they seem to have some personal belongings under there.
Nothing has changed since Victor was a child. Perhaps time moved forward for a period, but nothing has changed in 30+ years. Here is a shot from Victor as a child and here is a shot recently. You can see the bush and grass out front of the post office is exactly the same. The blue metal mailbox should have rusted completely within that time. The buildings look the same as well.
There are quite a few missing buildings such as the motel. There was an aerial photo of the town posted (which I can’t find now) where there were bits of driveways but no houses there. So chances are the town was split in half. But another interesting thing is that there is some long grass where the motel would have been. So it wasn’t always frozen like this, and time did move forward for a short period. I think one of the original people (now turned into monsters) got pregnant after the event, so time moved forward till the child was born (possibly that boy in white). Since time seems to be moving forward again now since the leaves are falling, which hasn’t happened in Victor’s time there (this is a bit of a spoiler that will be revealed next episode), it is because Fatima is pregnant.
I think there was a scientist who was in the town during the event and that is who was performing experiments on Martin with the bloodworms. I don’t think he was looking for a way to kill the monsters (I suspect he is a monster as well) but rather just kept doing experiments like he did when he was alive. Martin should have been dead a long time ago it seems. They create immortality in humans but death in the monsters. It puts humans in a quantum state of being neither alive or dead and monsters out of a quantum state making them dead. It could possibly make them alive as well, but that probably requires that they would be alive in the present day if nothing had happened.
The symbols the monsters have in their tunnels and the one jade keeps seeing I think are road overlays. The monsters at first tried to find a way out because for a time I think they were human while one was pregnant. That idea came from this post. The talismans symbols don’t do anything at all, just represent what happened to them being in two states, but the type of rock they are on is what gives them power. Also the voice they heard on the radio I believe came from people who are trapped in the other half of the town elsewhere and are entangled with this part of the town.
edit to add: The only things that seem to age are the newcomers and their objects including cars.

2023.06.01 02:34 ScholarImpossible121 A Tobias Harris Trade for every Team - Part 1 Eastern Conference

Here is a list of a Tobias Harris trade for every team, along with a small narration of why the teams would do it, who I believe it favours and a rating out of 10, being how many seconds the GM takes to call me an idiot. All pass the fanspo cap machine. Have tried to exclude trades where major draft capital changes hands.
If a first round pick is all that is needed then these trades are close to the mark in value.
For cap purposes, I will state that Harden is staying ($40m salary as part of 3 years / $130m) or going, with the trade being made with that knowledge and who of Paul Reed, Shake Milton and Jaden McDaniels will be retained for $8m per season each.
Tobias Harris for Kris Middleton (opts in to player option). Harden stays. Reed and McDaniels resign.
The Bucks do this because Middleton gives an ultimatum of this or he leaves in free agency, allowing them to retain the salary spot for another year. Sixers do this with the view of extending/resigning Middleton.
This trade is probably a 2/10.
Tobias Harris, Tyrese Maxey + picks for Jalen Brown and Malcom Brogdon. Harden stays. McDaniels resigns.
The Celtics are scared of the supermax on Brown. They cut some salary and pick up a cheaper second option player in Maxey. Sixers believe Brown helps win now more than Maxey.
This trade is a 1/10.
Tobias Harris for Dean Wade, Ricky Rubio and Cedi Osman, Caris Levert S&T to 3rd team. Harden leaves, Milton, McDaniels and Reed resign.
This is a salary dump for the Sixers and an attempt to acquire a wing for the Cavs.
This trade is a 3/10.
Tobias Harris, Furkan Korkmaz and Danuel House for Julius Randle and Evan Fournier. Harden stays, McDaniels and Reed resign.
The Knicks believe that Randle is bad for the team and would like an adult in the room and to redistribute offence to their guards. Harris helps them remain competitive. Randle takes the regular season load off Embiid and Harden, hopefully you get odd year Randle and not even year Randle.
This trade is a 5/10.
Tobias Harris for Dorian Finney-Smith, Joe Harris and Patty Mills. Harden stays, McDaniels and Reed resign.
The Nets are swapping 3 cheap years of DFS for 1 year of Tobias Harris, Joe Harris and Mills are the matching salary and were barely playing last year. Sixers get a cheaper wing on a longer contract and the off chance that Joe Harris remembers how to shoot.
This trade is a 4/10.
Tobias Harris, Furkan Korkmaz and Montrez Harrell for Duncan Robinson and Kyle Lowry. Harden leaves, Milton, McDaniels and Reed resign.
This is a salary dump of two bench players for the Heat. They get back Harris, who they believe under Spolstera can be better than Caleb Martin. Lowry replaces some of what Harden provided.
This trade is a 3/10.
Tobias Harris and Danuel House for John Collins and Bogdan Bogdanovic. Harden stays, McDaniels resigns.
Hawks look to salary dump Collins (3 years) and Bogdanovic (4 years). Harris probably is steadier than Collins. Sixers bet on having an improved Collins and Bogdanovic just being another guy that is playable in the playoffs.
This trade is a 2/10.
Tobias Harris for Fred Van Vleet, Chris Boucher and Otto Porter. Harden leaves, Milton and McDaniels resign.
FVV wants to follow Nurse, opts in and extends and replaces Harden. Boucher and Porter are the matching salary. Boucher pushes out Reed. Assuming Porter provides nothing.
This trade is a 6/10.
Tobias Harris, Furkan Korkmaz and Danuel House for Lonzo Ball and Demar Derozan (RTRS special). Harden leaves, Milton, McDaniels and Reed resign.
Chicago want to blow it up and get off the Lonzo Ball contract and not extend DeRozan. They acquire expiring salary.
This trade is a 5/10.
Tobias Harris for Jonathon Isaac (and Gary Harris if the Magic are looking to dump him). Harden stays, McDaniels and Reed resign.
The Magic get a forward who plays and give up a guy who doesnt play. Harris is just an adult in the room.
This trade is a 4/10.
Tobias Harris for Buddy Hield, TJ McConnell and Daniel Theis (RTRS special). Harden stays, McDaniels and Reed resign.
The Pacers dont have any big forwards and would like to let their younger players handle more offensive responsibility.
This trade is a 4/10.
Tobias Harris for Daniel Gafford and Johnny Davis. Harden leaves, Milton, McDaniels and Reed resign.
Wizards look to replace the Porzingis/Kuzma minutes with Harris and get off future money. This is a salary saving move for both teams.
This trade is a 2/10.
Tobias Harris for Gordon Hayward and Cody Martin. Harden stays, McDaniels and Reed resign.
Sixers get 2 x the lesser twin. Hope Hayward can = Harris post season production. Hornets get a player who probably wont be injured all the time.
This trade is a 3/10.
Tobias Harris for Bojan Bogdanovic and Marvin Baguley. Harden stays, McDaniels resigns.
Pistons get expiring salary for 2 year contracts. Sixers get a Harris replacement that hopefully is a small upgrade and some salary savings.
This trade is a 4/10.

2023.06.01 02:30 DramaThrowAway2023 Deep Dive: Matty Healy, the evil edgelord

Deep Dive: Matty Healy, the evil edgelord
Hi! I did a huge deep dive on the DWD drama a while ago and was asked to do others and said I would. Since then, all hell broke lose.
I talked about this with some people privately, but I mentioned in my first post that I was a stan, just not of anyone involved in the drama. Well, I was a Taylor Swift stan. Was being the operative word. I'm once again using by throwaway account because I was warned by people who I reached out to privately of the horrible things people have been telling them since they called Matty out. I used to be a huge Swiftie, and I wasn't that careful with my personal data when participating in conversations, so I need to be careful.
I'm tired of seeing Tay's new boo defended and the excuses people make about him, so my second deep dive is exposing him for the dirtbag he's been his whole career, how he refuses to apologize or gives terrible apologies when he does. How he repeats the same "mistakes" over and over, etc. I know there's been a ton of threads about this man lately, but I wanted to have everything in one place. Strap in. Trigger warning for everything under the sun, grain of salt on unsubstantiated stuff (there's like, two things and one of them is pretty obviously true, but I rather say it than not).
The 1975 is a band from the city of Manchester, England. They were a band for about a decade before they reached any sort of success. That happened in late 2012/early 2013. Matty was born April 1989 and is now 34 years old. This is important because everything I'm about to show you happened in his adulthood. He was 23 in 2012.


  • He dated a girl called Gemma Janes, who was 17/18 years old, when he was 23/24. Here's a pic of them together on her Instagram, posted in January 2013. She was still 17 - her birthday is May 11 1995. The age of consent in England is 16, so this wasn't illegal. Immoral, however? I think yes. She posted him a lot, btw. It wasn't just a one-off pic. Like here and here and here. She was also in the band's music video for the song Chocolate (Aug 2013). She simulates/appears to be nude. She was 18. He was 24.


  • Normally, I wouldn't include something like this, because it feels like a small issue and too prevalent to actually single him/his band out, but given some of the criticism he makes of hip hop culture later on (and how he pats his own back on his own "feminism"), I decided to come back and include it.
The music video for the song Girls juxtaposes The 1975 and a version of it but as girls. This is the formation for The 1975 as men vs as women:
You know, totally the same outfits. But misogyny is only in hip hop, according to him (you'll get to that in a second).
Girls in bathing suits featuring the band fully dressed. This is basically the tone of the entire music video.
Once again, this is, sadly, par for the course for the music industry, and usually I wouldn't include it (I got it from a ridiculously named blog as I was researching), but given the context of what he will preach later, it seems pretty freaking ironic.

  • The song was part of their August 2013 album called The 1975, and features lyrics about a 17 year old girl "seducing" him. Reminder, he had met his current girlfriend at the time when she was 17. These are some of the lyrics:
Bite your face to spite your noseSeventeen and a half years oldWorrying about my brother finding outWhere's the fun in doing what you're told?
'Cause they're just girls breaking heartsEyes bright, uptight, just girlsBut she can't be what you need if she's seventeenThey're just girls
Whether the song was inspired by her or not, he seems to be perfectly aware of how weird it is to be dating a 17 year old in his mid twenties. Yet, he dated a 17 year old, quite unapologetically, in his mid twenties.

  • I don't know the exact date of this, but a Norwegian journalist accused Matty of sexually harassing her. The accusation was made in 2016 and she dated it back in 2013. Here's an article in English, which links to the article by the journalist in Norwegian. She says he told her he's a sex addict and invited her to his hotel room.


  • In the spring of 2014 they launched on a long tour of nightclubs in North America. While in Canada, he did an interview with IX Daily, a (now defunct) website dedicated to indie subculture. The interviewers were two girls.
The following exchange happened in this interview:
Interviewer: What is your biggest fear and biggest vice?
Matty: These are quite heavy questions for girls dressed as you two.
Interviewer: I'm a little bit offended...
Matty: You're offended by that?
Interviewer: Mhm (smiling awkwardly)
Matty: D'you know how many people I meet every single day? D'you know how many people interview me every single day?
Interviewer: Yes, a lot.
Matty: (pointing to both of them) You look nice for the interview. You've made an effort. You're, like, a pretty girl... I'm gonna have certain stereotypes. I don't meant offend you. At all. But the choker thing is kind of in, I see. I do like that.
Interviewer: I'll take it as a compliment.
Video. Around the 3 minute mark.

  • In August 2014, Matty goes on a tirade explaining why he always slags off religion, including islam. Culminating with this tweet:
A Muslim fan from Egypt called Farida told him this:
He replied this:
The fan took the high road and replied:
He royally ignored their explanations and counterpoints to his narrow view and went on a rant instead, which I'll link in a second. Then finished with this:
And retweeted this:
Then left Twitter. The fan recounted the exchange, you can find that and the rest of his rant here. I know this is getting long, but the fan was actually very well-spoken and I want to echo her words. In case some people don't click on the link, this is how she concluded the post:
I just want to explain to you that the reason I got angry was because he had been spreading rumours that isis follow the rules of islam and that is far from the truth.
Isis are a threat to Muslims and Arab countries around the world right now. Our religion is against killing innocent people, it’s haram.
Terrorist groups like isis who think what they’re doing is right and that they’re following islam are people who are feeding themselves lies about what Islam tells us to do.
Islam is a very peaceful and loving religion contrary to popular belief and i really hope if you think otherwise you take the time to educate yourself before giving out your opinions when you do not have the facts.
I also got angry because he has a huge following and some people are obviously going to side with him (trust me they’ve been in my mentions all day) and they’re just going to agree with him when he doesn’t have the facts and he’s so obviously not educated on this subject.
He’s constantly tweeting that we should respect people who have different religions then tweets things like fuck god then tweets that religion is an idea THEN says its faith so he’s all over the place.
Article about this whole thing. Including this because since his account is deleted, we can't verify the tweets and I don't want it to be left as hearsay. The original pics from the article are gone, but the tweets are all referenced in the body of the text.
  • At some point in 2014, Matty dates Halsey, whose debut EP Room 93 (released in October 2014) is about him. Halsey was born in September 1994, which means she and Matty dated when she was 18 and he was 25.
  • In August 2014, while the band is performing at Lollapalooza, he allegedly kisses a 15 year old girl. Video of the accusation. In another video, the same person explains it happened in Chicago.
  • Someone unearthed a lot of tweets from fans talking about Matty kissing underage fans, some of them date back years and also reference Lollapalooza. Here's a link to the last tweet, which includes a video of the fan talking about it and a video where you can hear Matty ask if she wants "a proper" kiss. He doesn't ask how old she is.
  • In December 2014 he tweets this. He has never apologized.


  • It's not clear when exactly they met, but we know that by 2015, he was dating his girlfriend Gabriella Brooks, who in 2015 was 18/19 (born May 1996). Matty was 25/26. It's now the third confirmed relationship Matty has with a teenager while in his mid 20s. And teenagers that are either minors or barely adults, at that. Add to this the weird underage kissing...


  • In April, he retweets Islamophobic tweets by a Muslim hate group, then unretweets when he's called out. Here's a summary by his own subreddit.
  • In July, he mouths the N word while "dancing" to the song Caroline by Aminé. Clip here.


  • In November he gives an interview with The Fader where he says the following:
One of the problems is the youth of hip-hop. At the moment, with SoundCloud rap, it's become a bit of a drug-taking competition, and that happened in rock and roll. Those things get weeded out the longer those things exist. The reason misogyny doesn't happen in rock and roll anymore is because it's a vocabulary that existed for so long is that it got weeded out. It still exists in hip-hop because [the genre] is so young, but it'll stop. That's why you have this moment with young black men — Kanye-aged men, as well — talking about their relationship with themselves, which is a big step forward for hip-hop. Drake, for example. But then they'll be like, "But I still got bitches." The scene's relationship with women hasn't caught up to its relationship with itself, but that's something that will happen.
He tweeted the following apology a few days later (his account is now deleted):
This bit of me talking in an interview reads as patronising, uninformed and reductive. And to be fair it is. And I’d like to apologise….
What I said isn’t correct. And it’s not all a misquote. Just for clarity I said that misogyny wasn’t ALLOWED in rock and roll now days in a way it is in hip hop – not that it doesn’t exist, that’s maybe a misquote as I’m aware of the misogyny in rocknroll…
I would never deny the RAMPANT misogyny that exists in Rock n Roll. It’s everywhere and has been a weirdly accepted part of it since it’s inception.
BUT now looking at what I said – I was simplifying a complex issue without the right amount of education on the subject
I think cos I’m so actively trying to support women (not a brag but with the record label etc)**I kinda forget that im not very educated on feminism and misogyny and I cant just ‘figure stuff out’ in public and end up trivialising the complexities of such enormous, experienced issues
So basically, I’m sorry for saying that as I was wrong. And thanks for pointing it out cos if I’m gonna do this I have to keep learning.Just to clarify I’m not apologising for saying ‘rock music is void of misogyny’. I didn’t say that. Any body who says that is not only thick as fuck they most probably don’t have physical eyes. It’s the stupidest thing I’ve ever heard
I’m apologising for the fact my words could INSINUATE that misogyny in culture and music is an exclusively hip hop (black) issue. I do not believe that. What I believe is that I’m not educated enough to speak on THAT properly and a big part of that is this white dick that I have
I'm trying to keep my personal commentary to a minimum but him including how much of a feminist he is because of his record label in his weird ass apology took me out. I got the tweets from this Billboard article.


  • After winning at the Brits, he tweets that "it's not often that left leaning bands win awards." And I didn't know my eyes could roll that fast and that far.
  • In September, he posts this picture, stepping on the South Korean flag:
When called out on it, he replies this:
Article about it.
  • In December he gives an interview in which he demonstrates that he didn't bother to read Farida's points, all the way back in 2014, or anyone else's since then, because he continues to confuse ISIS / terrorism in the name of Islam with Islam itself, which is a peaceful religion.
Here's a transcript of his obnoxious speech:
You can’t criticize Islam as a set of ideas…because you’re inherently criticizing people. But that’s a problem with society because Islamophobia does exist, people are bigoted. But what that really is is thick, scared people not liking brown people. Whereas I love people, I love brown people.I just don’t know when I’m allowed to be offended. Religious people are always allowed to be offended: ‘Oh, we’re offended by this, I’m offended by that.’I have to get up every day and read some abhorrent that’s happened in the name of religion. And I never get a day. I never get a day where I’m allowed to be offended. … Where are my rights as an atheist?
Fundamentally misunderstanding that most victims of terrorist attacks are Muslim. It's incredible that he was lectured on this by a Muslim girl 5 years prior and yet, he still couldn't get it. He was 30 years old at this point, by the way. This is the third Islamophobic incident with him (that we have record of).


  • The 1975's song Roadkill featured the F slur. Here he is singing it live in late 2022. To be transparent, he's quoting an imaginary person calling him the slur. As a self-admitted straight man, he doesn't get to reclaim it.
  • The 1975's song Me & You Together Song features these lyrics:
I'm sorry that I'm kinda queer
It's not as weird as it appears
It's 'cause my body doesn't stop me (Stop me)
Oh, it's okay, lots of people think I'm gay
IDEK, the song is about falling in love with a girl he meets while she's topless. I can't even be offended because this is such an edgy unnecessary hot mess.
  • In May, during the time of the height of the BLM protests, he tweeted about it... promoting their own song
When called out for it, he doubled down and refused to apologize. Then deleted his entire social media.


In the spring of 2021, Adam Powell, a longtime collaborator (videographer) of The 1975 was accused of sexual misconduct by a number of fans. Here's a whole video about it. The accusations had been piling up for a while, the video I'm linking, which breaks them down, is from April 2021. Dirty Hit, the record label that hosts a bunch of indie artists including The 1975, of which Matty was a director of until recently, made a statement in May.
  • A fan had sent Matty the following DMs in March, which he never replied to.
Instead, he cropped one of the DMs and posted it in his Instagram story, mocking the fan:
Here's a tweet by the fan who had this "exchange," explaining it. Adam Powell was one of his best friends. He still hasn't said anything about it.


“A boy goes up to a Jewish man. The boy asks ‘Can I have $20?’ The man says ‘Can you have $15? Why do you need $10?"
This is the typical stereotype about Jewish people being cheap.
“A terrorist runs onto a plane with a gun. He yells ‘Who’s a Jew?’ A man stand in the back and says ‘Well that’s an interesting question.'"
This is a dog whistle about terrorists being Arabs (because of the ongoing Arab vs Jewish feud), as well as a play on how Jewish people aren't unified.
He was seen wearing it again in March 2023
He was also seen hanging out with one of the Red Scare hosts, Dasha Nekrasova
And posted this on his instagram story:
I really don't have the patience to fully explain why Dasha and the Red Scare Podcast are an issue. You can do your own research to actually get deep in this one, but just so you get an idea, one of the episodes of the Red Scare podcast was dedicated to make fun of FKA Twigs for speaking up about the abuse she suffered by Shia LaBeouf. It's chilling to hear, so trigger warning. Matty dated FKA Twigs for three years, right after her relationship with Shia ended. FKA blocked Matty on Instagram upon breaking up, for what it's worth. The Red Scare also had an episode where they bodyshamed Matty's current girlfriend, Taylor Swift, and said she should go back to having an eating disorder. They also called her mom Miss Piggy.
That's the tone of the entire thing. They find it funny to platform people like Alex Jones, they think Trump is hilarious and have mocked his abuse victims. Just... nasty stuff.


  • In January, he does a nazi salute and march on stage as "a parody" to mock Kanye and Trump.
  • In early 2023, I don't have exact dates, he posts the following Instagram stories:
  • In February he goes to The Adam Friedland Show, a "dirtbag leftist" podcast hosted by Adam Friedland and Nick Mullen. The tone of the podcast is typical edgelord leftist who thinks that because they say offensive things as "satire" and "social commentary" they're not actually offensive.
I'm not going to spend a ton of time on this, because this is the part that's documented the most
The podcast would be taken down by Spotify and Apple Music because of its offensive content, but it's still available on YouTube and you can listen to the whole thing here.
In this podcast Matty and the hosts make... a joke? about Matty being caught red-handed about to m*sturbate to Ghetto Gaggers, a website that "specializes" on showing p*rn about brutalized (Matty's word) black women. You can hear the whole exchange here, and there's a very graphic description of the type of videos you can find in it. A transcript of the conversation can be found in this article. Since then, apparently Adam Friedland claimed that it was a joke that he suggested to Matty (I can't find where he claimed this, but I continue to see his fans saying he did). I don't think this changes much of anything because Matty was clearly very aware of what Ghetto Gaggers was, given the fact that he described it, and still found it hilarious. So he either finds it black women being brutalized arousing and funny or just funny.
The podcast also included a section where they talk about rapper Ice Spice. The hosts call her "a chubby Chinese lady" to which Matty bursts out laughing. They also mock multiple accents, which Matty encourages and laughs at. Here's an excerpt.
The only thing he apologized for of all this was the Ice Spice comments. Video of his apology during a random show in New Zealand, Ice Spice totally saw that! Trigger warning for eyeroll content. This is the transcript:
I just feel a bit bad, and I’m kind of a bit sorry if I’ve offended you. Ice Spice, I’m sorry. It’s not because I’m annoyed that me joking got misconstrued. It’s because I don’t want Ice Spice to think I’m a dick. I love you, Ice Spice. I’m so sorry.
The truth is, I see a sign that says like, ‘Matty, I hope you’re okay.’ I feel a bit bad, to be honest, because I feel like I’ve been a bit irresponsible. It’s very well for me to say, I don’t understand how famous I am. I don’t like being famous. But reality is reality. And I think that I’ve said some things or kind of, I make a joke out of everything. That’s my thing. And I can take it too far sometimes in front of too many people. And I feel a bit embarrassed. So that’s the truth.
Then in a New Yorker profile he said he wasn't sorry about the podcast (no specific mention of Ice Spice) and basically said none of it mattered.
I asked him about the podcast. He’d been doing so much promo, he told me, that he wanted to do something that felt more like simply talking with his friends. But, of course, he had done this all in public, on mike. Had he baited his fans on purpose? “A little bit,” he said. “But it doesn’t actually matter. Nobody is sitting there at night slumped at their computer, and their boyfriend comes over and goes, ‘What’s wrong, darling?’ and they go, ‘It’s just this thing with Matty Healy.’ That doesn’t happen.”
“Maybe it does,” I said.
“If it does,” he said, “you’re either deluded or you are, sorry, a liar. You’re either lying that you are hurt, or you’re a bit mental for being hurt. It’s just people going, ‘Oh, there’s a bad thing over there, let me get as close to it as possible so you can see how good I am.’ And I kind of want them to do that, because they’re demonstrating something so base level.”

  • Matty deleted his social media in April, but as of the day he deleted, he followed Kyle Rittenhouse and Andrew Tate
Allegedly, the follows were because he was "doing research" or I don't know, making fun of them? It's hard to keep up with the edgelord excuses.
I didn't include the comments Matty himself made saying that he would feel "emasculated" if he was linked to Taylor back in 2016. He published a lengthy apology that basically justifies the whole thing and says men have "those thoughts." I can't add any more pics, and his twitter account, where he posted it, is deleted, so the tweet is the last hotlink, here is the actual full pic. Make of that what you will.
He has also used the R word, but he apologized for that (although his apology, included the R word), so, you know...
There's more. He did this whole bit where he posted offensive memes in a highlight called "Problemattic", but this is incredibly long and I'm at my limit of 20 pics already. If anyone has any additions, leave them in the comments. I don't think there's a chance in hell Reddit will allow me to edit this post, so I won't be able to add anything (I couldn't with the last one and it was a lot shorter), so please, if the comments add stuff, upvote them so they're at the top.
Also, please forgive any typos or mistakes, as I said,I won't be able to edit it.
Thank you to everyone that contributed to this thread and kindly answered my questions in DMs. You guys rock!

No experience necessary for the laborer custodial or maintenance mechanic positions. It helps on the interview but you can surely think of maintenance related experience to relay for an interview. Based on fixing things around your house, the car etc. Always mention working safely.

Pro tip: You can apply for any job that has an exam opening and the test is administered local to yourself. Make sure you're serious and score decently; you can turn down the job offer. Keep a physical copy of your exam score, I believe they are good for two years.
The reason is: These job postings can be posted externally at capacity for testing, meaning they will not allow you to take the exam if they have enough qualified applicants. However, if you have a test score on the books, you are a qualified applicant.

Explanation of MVO/TTO to save time:
MVO= CDL B Can only drive box trucks on public roads, can drive anything for moves on postal property.
TTO= CDL A Can drive anything.

USPS provides the training. (Maintenance jobs at least. TTO and management...GOOD LUCK)

You don't have to be crazy to work here. We'll train you. Everything but proper email usage.

2023.06.01 00:56 faerybones Last name Dorhamer

I found an old email exchange between a distant relative and I regarding our last name. What really has me curious is how the name changed frequently over the years. I'd really like a better understanding of why. I'd also like to know if the original spelling is old Germanic for Thor's Hammer? Or would that be too cool? Here's part of what he sent me:
It should be noted that the spelling of the last name changed with almost every generation of Dorhamers. Some individuals used various spellings of the name at different times in their lives. On many occasions, different siblings in the same family spelled their last names differently.

Generation 3: Note: Migrated from Espasingen, Baden, Germany. Left Germany in March 1854 with wife, Agnes, and two children, Edward John & Josepha (Josephine) Doorhammer. JOHAN GEORG DURHAMMER AKA GEORGE DOORHAMER (SR.) AKA GEORGE DORHAMER AKA GEORGE DEHIMER AKA GEORGE DORHEIMER Born: April 13, 1821 in Espasingen near Stokach Germany Died: May 16, 1890 in Waldo, Kansas. AGNES DOORHAMER nee SALZMAN Born: December 13, 1822 in Buhringen near Radolfzell Died: December 11, 1887 in Sauguoit, NY.

Died: November 29, 1918 in Rome Hospital Rome, NY. CATHERINE “KATE” DORHAMER nee MANLEY Born: January 13, 1860 in Town of Florence, Oneida Co. Died: April 4, 1927.

2023.05.31 23:43 Money12846273581 How to destroy Germany as the Soviet Union

Disclaimer: This guide is not for a entire SU play through and what to do, it is how you defend against Germany, what planes to use, and the templates.
So your main infantry template will be 9 pure infantry, a engineer company, support artillery, support anti air. What you will do to defend against the Germany is build level 6 forts across the entire line. For your tanks they will be 13 tanks, 8 trucks, 1 motorized AA.
So for your frontline, you will defend against the Germans on the territory you gained from the Molotov Ribbentrop pact. Down on the Romanian border, you will make a fallback line behind a small river starting from Bessarabia to the river line that ends at the border of Poland.
Air force
For your air you will get around 2000 fighters on Eastern Poland with 1000 CAS, and at least 300 in Romania with 200 CAS. Your fighter design will be 3 HMG 3x engine, self sealing tank, armor plate, drop tank. CAS will be cheap to spam out as well. The CAS design is just the best airframe you have, with 2 small bomb bays, nothing else.
Tank design
Your tank design will be a medium howitzer (best one you have) 3 man turret, improved radio, 2 heavy machine guns, easy maintenance, 14 engine, 9 armor. I recommend as soon as you get the medium howitzer make the same tank, so later you can convert it to the good tank.
So you will build a metric ton of forts and radar stations. Every place you are defending put a level 6 fort, DO NOT GO ABOVE LEVEL 6. The Germans will not attack you if you don’t get a level 6 fort. You want the Germans to attack so they weaken themselves so you attack, it will be very quick and easy. Radar stations everywhere in Eastern Poland, this will help your air a lot.
The attack
As soon as the Germans reach a million loses, begin your attack with your tanks. You should have at least 12 if you know what your doing. Begin your attack in weak areas, constantly try to encircle, and close your encirclements with infantry, use your tanks to make more encirclements. You should begin a attack in the north, pushing from north Poland, moving your tanks to make a encirclement in Memel. Once you have done this offensive, push as much as you can. Once you reached Danzig you have to go across a massive river, so try and find another area to attack, once this is done try and push to Berlin. Once Berlin is gone the war is mostly over.
I hope you enjoyed my guide, if you find someone wrong please tell me, and if you followed this and still failed DM me. And sorry if my English is also a bit fucked up, English isn’t my main language. Have a great day.
