2023.06.01 05:59 According-Gas7020 NYC steak house comparison

I planning to go to New York during this summer. As u know, Wolfgang's steak house and Peter Luger are most competitive restaurants. I need to decide one of these. Which one is better? I need specific comparison for price, taste, service and mood.

2023.06.01 05:40 boner_tears Feeling 2nd

I live in the same house and my boyfriend and his long time Girlfriend. We are in a closed V relationship. We have set days with him for ease of dating. Yesterday was my day and I hadn't seen him all weekend because I was out of town. So I made a reservation at my favorite restaurant (steak house) with the intention of taking him out to eat for some good food & alone quality time. When I got home he said he didn't feel comfortable with me spending all of that money and didn't want to go. We got into it about it and ended up going somewhere else, that made me sick. Flash forward. Today is her day. I went to dinner with a friend and they were going to have burgers according to the group chat. I texted and said I was on my way home and he said "ok we're at Texas roadhouse". Obviously not the restaurant I picked yesterday but I'm fucking LIVID that he wouldnt go to dinner with me at a steak place yesterday on my dime, but could take her tonight on his. He's response was "what was I supposed to say to her" well you had no problem telling me no.... Why is it different for her? So I just texted him saying maybe going forward we invoke a church & state approach to this V. Don't tell me what y'all did on your days, that's y'all's relationship and none of my business.

2023.06.01 04:12 AzulBrews37 New Gas Grill and Grease Traps

Been renting a town house for 18+ months, mostly grill chicken thighs after turning some nice steaks into charcoal. Found very early that the grill was very prone to flare ups so everything is cooked on low and takes forever with a ton of babysitting.
It took me until about 2 months ago to realize that not only does the grill the owner left us not have a grease trap but all the grease just pools in the bottom. I don’t think the grease would make it to the trap if it was even there…
So as someone who loves to make a joke out of a cliche I am asking for a new grill for my first Father’s Day. I figured I would ask the all knowing Reddit for suggestions on good mid tier* grill suggestions that have effective grease traps.
I don’t want to really ask for one more than $500-$600 (that seems to be the mid tier I found after about 30 min googling). I currently use a propane grill but not against going charcoal if it makes sense. I’m all for great tasting food but I won’t lie I do not have the taste buds to be picky about flavor profiles.
Meat taste good = family happy.
TDLR- looking for a good grill no more than $500-600 that has a good grease trap “system”

2023.06.01 02:41 Mikazah This week's grocery haul: I got paid $10 to take $99 worth of Pork, Pasta, Toothpaste, Cat Food, Pesto, Tooth Paste, and More!

Here are the goodies.

First haul in a while. Got a nice mix of things today.

Total: $98.78

Coupons: None!

Total Cash Back: $108.60

Final Cost: -$9.82 - Money Maker!

Photo of the haul.
Here is the complete break down and sites used. The stores are listed in the breakdown image. I don't include sites that take any receipt such as Coinout, ReceiptPal, etc on my breakdown. Brandclub takes a while to credit, so the amounts listed are what I expect to get once it finishes pending. FieldAgent is an app that pays you to do a variety of tasks, including the one I did here where I made a purchase, took a couple photos, and left a review about the cat food.
Note: Individual deals vary by user for most apps. If you don't have the deals right now, you can try checking back later.
My Guides
  1. All rebate apps/sites I use and/or know about
  2. How I do my hauls
  3. Beginners guide to using rebate apps/sites - for those who don't know where to start
If you aren't interested in this kind of thing, please keep your comments to yourself. If you don't like what I buy, you can buy different products. If you don't like hunting for deals, you can do surveys, microtasks, games or whatever else you like instead. There is no need to discourage other users just because you aren't interested in the same things!
Some additional deals:


Man, today was stressful. In part due to the fact that I ended up going during a particularly busy time (I was planning to go after a doc appointment, but that didn't happen), and the fact that our Wal-Mart has rearranged 2/3 of the store, some of which in weird ways (they put all of the wet cat food in reverse order) But mainly it was due to what happened on the way to the store. For those curious, I'll explain further down at the end of this section since it's not explicitly related to this haul, but a TL;DR - I fucking hate my Jeep.
So, the haul itself went relatively smoothly. It's been a while, so I was a bit out of my groove. I messed up a bit on the deals. I meant to get 2 Arm & Hammer toothpaste and 4 Knoppers, but I swapped those around. Whoops. I also accidently got 11 deals when I only needed 8. I had decided to relook over MyPoints and found some deals, and it didn't register that since there were also deals for them on Ibotta, I could remove other deals. This wouldn't have been an issue if I were to aim to finish my big bonus this weekend, but... I'm not sure if I will be able to now.
Not a huge fan of Fetch's new redemption screen. It's pretty, sure, but it's no longer intuitive which defeats the purpose. I liked the old one. I also don't like how the videos seem to get longer each time. I also forgot about MyPoint's limit of 10 items per receipt, but then I found out you can just scan the receipt a 2nd time to get the rest of the rebates. So, what's the point of the limit? Lol. I also noticed a lot of rebates got added to aisle this past month... but none of them are good. Everything near me is mostly BOGO or just a buck or two back. That'd be fine if I knew I liked the products, but most of this stuff is really expensive, and I don't want two of something that I don't know if I'll even like.
BrandClub seems to have made some major changes. They added Kroger! I don't have one near me, but I see people post amazing Kroger deals all the time. Also, if I'm seeing this right, purchase rewards don't seem to be going into a locked status anymore (unless you unlock another reward with your purchase). For example, my Barilla purchases from last month all immediately unlocked their own rewards. I have nothing in the locked status for them. I did not add this change to my spreadsheet since I'm not 100% sure right now, but that'd be awesome if it were true. I also noticed a few rewards for watching videos. Unfortunately, they require a purchase to unlock. On the not-so-good side, brands seem to have different percent rebates now. Some items don't give any rewards, such as the Arm & Hammer, and they won't register or unlock rewards either. I know that Arm & Hammer toothpaste is in the system. I've bought it before, and it's showing in the search, but since it has no reward, none of my locked rewards were unlocked.
Instacart also gave me another offer for $30 off my next two orders of $50. Didn't take a picture this time, but I got almost $50 worth of groceries for $16 (they were out of something, so my total went down). Still not sure how to get them to use my credits that I earned before. It said it applied in the checkout, but it didn't. I have until the 9th to use the 2nd one, so maybe I'll figure it out then.
Now for the rant - In case you didn't notice, it's been a month since my last post. The last time I was at the store there was an obviously very ill jerk who didn't comprehend the concept of personal space. I ended up horrendously sick for the better part of 3 weeks. Not covid, but it was nasty, so I took it upon myself to completely self isolate. Looks like this cough is here to stay for a while though. My car apparently also caught what I did since it didn't want to leave the house either. Towed it to the mechanic, where the issue magically disappeared, he fixed a few things, and he wanted me to run it the next few days to try to see if the issue comes back. Well, it sure did. Car broke down on my way to do this haul. On a highway. Around a wide bend (I could be seen in time... IF they were paying attention). Going up a hill. In a place where people blow through at 45-55+ mph without thinking. Yea, that wasn't fun. There were a few close calls (mostly by school busses...), but thankfully it got towed away without incident. I borrowed a car and did the haul since I really did need to get some stuff after going almost nowhere for the past month. I planned to do another haul this weekend to finish my big bonus but... that probably won't happen. I'm not sure when my next haul will be.

Time Spent

I totally forgot to keep track today, sorry. I generally plan my hauls over the course of an hour or two while I play with the cat and eat breakfast. I spent a total of about 1.5-2 hours driving to a couple stores, getting everything including my shopping items, picking up my Aldi order, then driving the car back to its owner.

Food From Deals

This past month I made Buttered pasta, stewed apples, and cinnamon ginger tea, Tomato Tortilla, High Protein Tomato Crackers, "Pizza" Sandwich, Pesto Steak with Jasmine Rice, Pizza Pocket, and Cherry Pancakes
Do you guys want me to continue showing things I've made using ingredients I got from rebate apps on these posts? Let me know in the comments, or you can vote on this poll if you want to remain anonymous.

2023.06.01 01:41 Teeth-Who-Needs-Em Have you ever had this kind of issue with your babysitter?

Me and my wife were just too damned tired. So sue us, we just finished moving into a new home a month ago, we were completely burned out from running around trying to keep our son from asphyxiating and dying, and we needed a goddamn break, and now I'm back here, frantically typing out a post that'll probably cost precious seconds I could have used to

I'm sorry, I need to start over. Helen- that's my wife- always tells me that I'm too quick to open conversations with angeother heavy emotional loads. It's not exactly something I like to brag about. She and I recently finished moving into a new house in the suburbs. It's roomier than our last one, it's near a good elementary school, and it's close to the children's hospital. Sorry for the unnecessarily morbid turn that took; Our 5-year-old son, Dylan, has cystic fibrosis. For the uninitiated, the glands in his body that produce sweat, mucus, and other bodily fluids don't work right, and if he isn't frequently given a nebulizer and airway clearance treatment, gunk starts to clog his airways.
In spite of his disability, Dylan is just as energetic if not more than the average kid his age, and with more room to run around in the new house, he's taken to coming up with all sorts of imaginary friends. The latest and longest-lasting one is Rote Raveeja, a combination of two of his favorite TV characters- Rosie Revere from Ada Twist, Scientist), and Night Ninja from PJ Masks. Rolled together, you get a ninja/inventor girl whose sole purpose seems to be giving Dylan an excuse to jump off the couch or run careening through the halls instead of sitting down for the nebulizer. Not that I blame him, but it's frustrating to have your kid shouting "but Rosie Night wanted to plaaaaaaayyyyy!" when you're trying to keep him from suffocating.
All this to say that neither me nor Helen were ever expecting a break anytime soon, at least until our neighbors the Rosewaters recommended us a high school senior named Shania to babysit. Shania had apparently worked with special needs/disabled children multiple times in the past, and Mr. Rosewater endlessly gushed to us about how well she had handled their hyperactive 7-year-old Emily, not only getting the little whirling Dervish to go to bed on time but apparently being so effective that Emily begged them to invite Shania back as soon as possible.
You've read the paragraph that I crossed out. You can probably surmise that we hired Shania, albeit after a vetting process that involved contacting several of her past clients. All of them freely vouched- this girl was apparently the real deal. The evening we left her with Dylan, he was upstairs brushing his teeth, having been informed about the babysitter beforehand. He knew how to help her administer his own treatments, and Shania had been given a sizable list of emergency contacts, required medications, and tricks that had at least a 40% success rate of getting him to calm down. She had taken everything since we contacted her in stride, and tonight was no different. If anything, she seemed almost excited for the challenge.
Within minutes of leaving the house for dinner, we got a text message from Shania saying that Dylan had come downstairs, and they were going to start off the night by watching a movie. Several times throughout the night, we received amusing follow-ups about how Dylan was holding up (it seemed that Shania had just a high enough energy level to match him, albeit with a little running to keep up occasionally).
No matter how reassuring these messages were, the whole time throughout the dinner, the back of my mind was on the edge of its' seat. Call me paranoid, but when your child can clog up his lungs by doing the activities he loves best, you learn to err on the side of worry. At last, as I was finishing up my steak, the worst happened.
NO no why is this happening you left your kid alone for one evening and now there could be a
My hands were shaking the whole car ride home, to the point where Helen had to take over driving. I was furious with myself for leaving Dylan without us, furious at my beautiful idiot son for not letting the nicest babysitter he's ever had try to keep him from not suffocating, furious in general that I didn't have a kid who could be left alone without this much anxiety. Deep down, I knew that this anger wasn't constructive, but it was all I could do not to punch something out of pure stress. We took ONE BREAK! ONE F-
I half expected the house to be on fire when we arrived, but it was undamaged, albeit quieter than usual. "Dylan ran off, and I couldn't keep up while holding the vest", said Shania, on the verge of tears whilst lugging around the inflatable pump/vest combo that we use to expel excess mucus from Dylan's chest. (Just don't imagine what the mucus looks like once it's expelled, particularly all over your oak coffee table. Bad incident at our old house. Sorry, I'm rambling again.)
I fully expected to have to turn the house upside down, but for the first time that night, I breathed easy. Dylan was laying in the first place he checked- On his bed. "I'm sorry, daddy!", he cry-coughed. "Ididdameantascareanybuddyijustneededanapandmychestgotbadcan *hack* wedodavesnow?". I ran over and hugged him, so grateful to God that my son was alive and well that I started to cry on his favorite PJ Masks pajamas. Between the sobs, I asked Shania to hand me the vest. No response.
"Shania, can I have the vest please?", I asked again.
"W-who's that?"
"What do you mean?"
"Who are you hugging, Mr. Sanderson?
"..I'm hugging Dylan?"
"Dylan's a girl, though-"
"What?", Helen interjected.
"I mean, I assumed she was a boy because you said he when explaining his treatments, but then I showed up and she came downstairs, and I just thought I had misremembered...", Shania continued, and I felt my heart rate begin to grow.
"I'm Dylan! The only *gasp* girls in this house are Mommy, *gasp* you, and Rote *gasp* Raveeja!", my son barked out as Helen strapped the vest onto him and began pumping.
Shania looked at me with a terror I had never seen before. "Then... who in hell was I babysitting?"
A thunk echoed from inside Dylan's closet.

2023.06.01 00:53 ihaveasandwitch Why does it cost $5k per month to house one migrant?

Reading articles today about the $50m allocated to house 10,000 migrants through the end of June. From what I can tell they give them a cot, or mattress and food. I can't imagine they have a steak dinner every day, so where is all this money going to?

2023.05.31 23:15 emma98_86overlook Please help me with this Project

So, I've sent this idea to HBO a few months ago but I still haven't got any answers and I'm dying to know if it's good enough.
if you guys could help me out and give me a reply I would be very thankful !!
ps. I wrote it a long time ago and since I'm not a native speaker the english might not be so good.
Down the Rabbit- Hole
I went to the store this morning at basically,4 a.m. to receive some of the things Brian ordered for the stock. He asked if I was ok with it since it was the meat that wouuld arrive and I contradicted him saying I was fine. I guess I was just trying to train the not barfing routine.
- hi, are you the responsible around here ?
Alice: yes, pretty much. Good morning I’m the owner !
- ok, great I’m here to drop some steaks, chicken,pork..
It’s okay, it’s not for you, you’ll sooner have to learn how to cook these
- lamb,fish and these rabbits I killed yesterday
Alice: rabbits ?
- yes, there’s something wrong ?
Alice: I don’t remember asking for rabbits
- I think that was your husband ? isn’t he the actual owner ?
Alice: yes, but you can...can take the rabbit with you, I’m not paying for it
- what do you mean, you’re not paying for it ? I went in the middle of the night just to hunt these
Alice: well, I didn’t ask you to hunt them, you did it because you wante...
- I did it because my client asked me to, why are you even complaing if you’re not part of the business ? don’t you like rabbits ?
Alice: no, I don’t eat rabbits.
- why not ? it’s delicious !
Alice: do you think so ?
- yes,those are my favorite !
Alice: ok, then you can bring them inside. It happens you’re the only one around and I’m a helpless woman
- alright then, you should try one of these beasts sometime
Alice: uhum, just around here, you can just put them inside the freezer
- did you turn it on already ?
Alice: doing it
I think nervousism was the last thing that went through my mind that time. After turning it on and going straight to the kitchen, I made sure to hide it from him on the way back. He was a big guy, hunter aesthetic. Hard to kill, in a fighting mode at least. So I just waited for him to low down to pick up the fucking rabbit to deeply slither that sharp knife through his neck. No words, just blood. I didn’t even have a regret face after doing it. One thing to be said, he was just heavy. A dead weight,literally. Had to cut him in pieces on the ground.
After it, after turning every single particle he had into ready to pack meat, I brought the rest inside and made sure no one was going to miss that big burden. Found out he was just a cheap hunter, no wife, no kids. Basically a stranger in town. I drove his truck back to his house, and found my place to burn a big chunck of clothes and documents.
I don’t care what people may think, the supermarket opens this afternoon and people will be randomly selected between who eats big boy Jack and who eats the delicious cow.
*phone ringing
Call on
Alice: bello ?
Brian: hi, how is things up there ? everything alright ?
Alice: yeah, of course. I’m just hungry
Brian: you didn’t had any breakfast ?
Alice: not yet, no
Brian: ok, I think I can bring you some.
Alice: thanks,uhm. Brian, that guy you... hired, who is that ?
Brian: he was just inside the list I got, why is everything ok ? you, or maybe the delivery, did he mess up the delivery ?
Alice: no, no is just...he brought, he brought rabbits.
Brian: I’m so sorry, I forgot about that. You can just toss it away I think
Alice: it’s ok, I don’t mind it,Thanks, is everything ok in there ?
Brian:..my..mom is here
Alice: why ?
Brian: she’s waiting for you, asking why you haven’t done breakfast for me
Alice: well, tell her I’m busy
Brian: already taking refuge in the kitchen, I’m serious I should’ve received it today
Alice: believe me, you shouldn’t ( sighs) I’m coming.
Brian: ok,bye.
Alice: bye...
Call off
Alice: let’s hope you’re delicious. blurgh, disguting
Telling Karen I was at work was quite of a challenge. Telling Karen I’ve just killed a man was acceptable. It should mean that if I was able to kill him I can easily kill her. I swear to god that woman is everything wrong in america, and bold of you to think she even knows where that is.
Karen: finally, now could this be any more of an absurd ?
Alice: we’ve finally agreed on something!
Karen: I hope that means you won’t leave this house again,
Alice: I’m sorry I thought we were talking about your intrusions
Karen: intrusions ?! I was talking about you being a bad-mannered wife, this is my son’s house!
Alice: and mine as well
Karen: you don’t own anything !
Brian: this is so nice.
Alice: I remember someone saying of us sharing goods in our wedding day...am I contradicting the truth perhaps ?
Karen:... you are a bad person. And within these prospects you’ll become a bad mother. You ought to learn how to respect and love your husband so that you’ll do the same with your baby!
Brian: mom! That’s quite enough. You shouldn’t even be here.
Alice: love and respect only work in a relationship when they are reciprocate. And basically anywhere else. I respect your son in the same way I want to be respected. Could you please leave ? you‘re poluting the air.
Karen: brian.
Brian: mom, go.
Demon who walks on earth. Could you retire yourself from this house ?
Brian: I’m making breakfast. Help yourself with Eggs and toast, is the only thing i know how to do
Alice: I could teach you some things.
Brian: I have to say that’d be quite exciting!
After it all,I’m happy I married him, but still I don’t want to become all american! I’m better than that, we both are.
June, 18th was the day the supermarket opened, me and Brian woke up at severaly early ,even though he was the one going to open the place. I otherwise, woke up because of his mother...beloved woman. As a celebration of ‘him starting a business’ , her words, I’m supposed to prove myself ‘worthy’ of cooking with her techniques and recipes.....it really doesn’t make so much sense to me, but it’s a way of staying away from it for the morning, that really brought out some real sickness within me, in which was..misunderstood as a ‘promising pregnancy’.......so I couldn’t be luckier ! he’s still worried with it though,I’m worried I might’ve ruined our business before it even started.
I was ‘trained’ for chicken, fortunately, so to have his help on it we decided it’d be best for me to cook it at the supermarket kitchen, I at least made sure to pick it myself, being the only one there who knows how to differenciate it.
And believe me, it sold like wonder ! people from all around the city must’ve had their plans for lunch and their barbecues prepared this morning, the mother of the family goes with her children ot buy the groceries, within a fine piece of meat, steak or a dozen hamburguers and sausages made of whatever, I remenber those days clearly. I always the same thing the family sits around the big rectangle table with the dad at the end, the patriarch. The children play at the pool with a smile from side to side while their mother is inside preparing lunch and the outside table and their dad is cooking the sausages and burguers for the big thing. Starving wolves, really, waiting for the delicious meals to come to their mouths, they don’t even care it’s full of poison it’s a comfortable food for them, it brings out the felling that everything is going to be ok. Everything is going to end well, poor poeple they barely know they’ve put themselves inside a vicious cycle of wanting for more. The biggest, most infectious cycle. I know that if they like what they taste, they’ll grow used to it until there’s nothing left. It’s a true gain for us, they’ll fulfill our lives with money in exchange for more, but they won’t get it. They’ll starve for it and oblige me to go get it. Choose some other victim.
The lucky ones today,buying this delicious delight of meat, will become what I mostly fear. Cannibals. But, as you know, they’ll grow around it without even realizing. I otherwise won’t. I’ll become the mother, going out every night to get some food to feed the little monsters she created,only to protect those she loves so dearly.
It’s mostly not my fault you know ? americans are like that, they love what they can’t refuse. They’re starving already I’m just feeding them. The thing is, what I feared happened.
They didn’t like it.
They loved it.
the story goes around the starting of the 1950's btw.

2023.05.31 23:02 FortyYearTransform Documental Seasons 1-4: The Classic Era Full Timelines and Match Reports

Last Thursday I made a post where I showed the unlabeled timelines of each Documental season, and wrote that I planning to release all my data showing the entire breakdown of every card given in the first 10 seasons (and the shelved S8).
That time has come.
Reddit posts are limited to 40k characters, so I can't fit all the seasons in one post. However, I was planning to cap off the data post with a post reviewing every season, where I'd divide Documental into three eras (1-4, 5-7, shelved 8 - 10) and try to rank them. Instead, I'll combine the timeline, data, and review into three posts, one for each era. The reviews will go in a comment to save space.
Welcome to the Classic Era (alternatively, the Cookie-Fujimoto Era) of Documental. Introduction and methodology in the comments to save space.

Season 1

5:47:52 Yellow Jimmy "Yoshimoto's Al Capone": Ohchi is laughing pretty much throughout the group's conversation about Hachimitsu's shirt (and Fujimoto's "giant wife", per Kubota) but Jimmy coming out with his "mother and child" lamb gets him to laugh, chided for hiding behind cigarette. Boke, Absurd, Passive, Warning
5:26:26 Safe! Anthony Examined during the Saito orange, Ohchi accused of laughing but holding it in during Anthony's "move" which consists of him squeezing his head through the opponent's arm and saying Hello. Absurd

2023.05.31 21:08 mr_friend_computer Best value steak house for a family with a small child to visit?

Hi everyone!
I'm going to be dropping into Calgary for a few days with my family in a month and I was hoping to fit one steak house visit in with them (although that might be a pipe dream).
Going to be honest, my steak palate is not fine enough (nor is my wallet fat enough) to do the fancy stuff. I went to smugglers inn many years ago and was planning on taking them there, but recent reviews have suggested it's fallen very far from it's previous quality.
So what are some non-bank breaking suggestions for good steak eats in the city? I'm open to other good value / good experience food stuff as well (a small child excludes a lot of places, sadly), time permitting.
Thanks everyone!

2023.05.31 21:00 dudeguy81 My Feelings On Diablo 4 From A PD2 Players Perspective

I don't know where else to write this except here on this subreddit so here goes.
I have so many mixed feelings about Diablo 4. This is going to be long so if you can get through it kudos to you.
A quick history:
I played Diablo upon release and loved it. I still remember sitting in the car with my mother driving home from gamestop as I pondered what I'd name my character.
When Diablo 2 came out I was in college and played it exclusively for what felt like a year. When the expansion came out I once again dove in and the world faded away as I slayed demons endlessly and crafted runewords with excitement.
When Diablo 3 released I was so pumped. I watched videos on youtube for hours and excitedly played the beta. My first few weeks with the game were incredible. I was frustrated with the game though as I quickly realized in order to get a good item for my build to make any meaningful progression in torment difficulty I would have to shell out $100+ in the real money cash store. The market prices on stuff being so high really pissed me off. Furthermore the itemization was pitifully bad. A sharp contrast from Diablo and D2. I'd pick up a unique item and jump out of my chair only to be frustrated it rolled mods for the wrong class. Really? A unique ability tailored for a witchdoctor but rolled Dexterity? Are you kidding me? Wtf was blizzard thinking.
My excitement waned after a few months and I shelved the game. Fast forward a few years and Blizzard reworked Diablo 3 with rifts for end game and fixed the itemization to at least be functional and I got addicted to it. All said and done I've probably played 1000+ hours of D3.
D3 as it stood in its final form was all about sets. You'd reach max level at the start of a season and get going on assembling the set for the build you wanted to play. The set made up about 75% of your gear slots and the modifiers were insane. +10,000% damage wasn't an uncommon bonus for a completed set. The moment you completed it you could jump to the highest difficulty tier and start farming paragons and loot for the other slots or minor upgrades to the set pieces. The gameplay loop was fun however and I enjoyed it for many many seasons. Usually I'd quit around paragon 800-1000, maybe 3-4 weeks after the start of a season. I was never the type to push leaderboards or grind hours for a 1% improved piece of gear I already had.
Project Diablo 2:
When they announced D2R was coming I was like, woah, I haven't played that game in over a decade. How cool! I decided in preparation and after watching all the hype videos I wanted the play the original. So I started looking up how to play it. Turns out you couldn't just load the game up in battle.net like all of blizzard's modern titles. So I read a post online about how to get Diablo 2 working and the same post recommended I use Project Diablo since it had some neat improvements over the original. I was like, what the hell, why not? I think this was season 3 at the time.
After spending a few weeks in Project Diablo 2 I fell in love with it. Holy hell this mod was designed so well and the maps and end game content really set it apart from the original version. The trading was much better and I never felt like I had to dump real money into it to compete. I was just killing stuff, listing it on the site or discord, getting runes, and buying upgrades for my gear with the runes. Phenomenal system. Trading in PD2 felt so good compared to D2 or D3. I've played about 3-4 seasons of PD2 now and absolutely love it. Season 7 feels kind of bad because I know I and just about everyone else is going to be leaving tomorrow for D4 though so it's kind of been whatever. I'm sure we'll all be back for season 8 though and I can't wait for that.
When D2R came out I jumped in feet first. Felt like I was light years ahead of everyone else because I just played PD2 for a few months and my knowledge of the game was fresh compared to everyone else who hadn't played it since the early 2000s. But, as I'm sure you can guess, after reaching end game and crafting an enigma and infinity there's not much else to do. Who wants to do Baal runs or Chaos over and over once your character is so strong you can sleep walk through it? Boring. I quit. I did play season 1 and 2 briefly.
I was excited for the "terror zones" but once I realized they were the exact same thing but with higher level mobs so you can get more exp I quit again. That wasn't a real end game addition in my eyes, it was just a way to get level 99 faster. Which, I'll be honest, I've never gave two shits about. You're strong enough at level 90 to trivialize the content so who cares about 99. Seemed completely pointless. Maybe if I was still in college I could see myself going for it but I've got kids and a job. That shit ain't possible or desirable with the limited time I have these days.
I went back to PD2 and never looked at D2R again. PD2 is such an incredible game by comparison and now that we have 60 FPS and HD Text the graphics are fantastic. Sure they're not D2R graphics but they're close enough and the gameplay is so much better it's not really an issue.
Diablo 4:
When they announced Diablo 4 they said they were returning to their roots. I assumed, and I'm sure a lot of others assumed, this meant Diablo 2. The real standout hero of the series. Awesome. Runes were back, hell yes! The gritty feel and look was back, awesome! The numbers wouldn't be in the trillions like Diablo 3, great. You were free to use any items in the end game you wanted and not forced to use a set in most of your slots. In fact they said you could juxtapose the legendary power from one item to another. Sounds interesting.
Now that I've played the beta, twice, and seen the reviews I'm extremely concerned this game is going to be a huge disappointment to me.
First the good stuff:
The graphics are nice. The skills and abilities felt good. The itemization at the low levels felt good. The combat felt great. All good stuff.
Now the concerns:
After watching some reviews and seeing the end game it looks just like Diablo 3 with some WoW mixed in. I'm not seeing anything Diablo 2 oriented here other than the darker graphics in "some" areas. The spell effects at low level looked great in the beta. But having watched some of the end game videos I've seen I swear to god I was looking at Diablo 3. I literally paused a few videos because I could not discern Diablo 4 from Diablo 3 at all. Once all those over the top spell effects from high level combat are on the screen it's just a mess of cartoonish garbage. The way the characters and monsters move and look all felt like Diablo 3 all over again.
The skill tree and paragon system is bloated with filler. Who thought this was a good skill tree?
According to reviewers the overworld is a joke once you're a little ways past level 60. You can sleep walk through it. What is the point of open world if none of it is a challenge after you're level 70? A full 30 levels below max!? Are you kidding me? Why is there even an overworld at that point?
What is with all the walking around and talking to characters during quests? Just give me the quest and let me get back to combat. I don't need to follow some character for 3 minutes to a cellar to kill the purple baddie that pops out of the ground in the middle in 5 seconds. This was a terrible design in D3 and they should have noticed once they released adventure mode NO ONE EVER DID THE CAMPAIGN AGAIN for a reason.
The gear drops all being tailored for your class removes one of the most interesting parts of D2, finding stuff for other characters that make you want to try that class or build. Or better yet, trading it for something you actually do want.
How about the corruption system like PD2 has? I get that they didn't want to directly steal that great idea from PD2 when they did D2R but come on, recognize when someone innovates in the genre and use it when you make a new game. Corrupting gear is some of the most insanely rewarding and heartbreaking stuff I've ever seen in a game. I literally close my eyes when I slam a great item. The high we get from hitting 3 sockets on a badass helmet is something unmatched in diablo 3. Oh boy, I found a new dagger I was already using but this one has 5 more DPS! Nah. Fuck that. I found a Stone of Jordan and had the balls to slam it and nailed faster cast rate and now I'm literally rich and can fund an entire character. Now that is a rush.
This is what we waited all this time for? An updated version of Diablo 3? Did we learn nothing from the D2R launch? Players are yearning for that old school style of Diablo 2. They want to find high runes that have such a low drop rate you literally get chills when you find one. They want powerful runewords that you can craft that change your entire play style once you get. They want to corrupt gear letting you customize your build in unique ways. They want a fleshed out trading system so you can offload the loot you don't need and exchange it for gear you do want. They want to save up currency for those big GG items that you can flex in front of your friends.
I'm not naïve. I realize what D2 offers doesn't necessarily appeal to "modern gamers" at large and currently Blizzard is all about producing a product designed to sell cosmetics to as many people as possible. I just thought maybe they had learned from their mistakes with Diablo 3 and were actually going back to Diablo 2 with a fresh game, like they originally said. We were lied to. This game is going to be Diablo 3 with a damn horse and I'm frustrated.
I wish I had never played PD2. It seriously has ruined Diablo in all it's "blizzard forms" for me at this point. It's like eating at all the finest Steak Houses in Chicago for a few years and then moving to Nebraska and realizing you'll never enjoy a steak in that state ever, because they have no idea how to cook them and expect you to put A1 on it to cover up the fact that they fucked it up.
With that out of the way. I'm still excited to try Diablo 4. Maybe I'll be pleasantly surprised with the end game. Maybe the cartoonish graphics won't bother me. Maybe the itemization towards the end will be better than I expect. Maybe the gameplay loop will hook me. Maybe they'll add runes with season 1 and powerful runewords. Maybe maybe maybe. But, I'll be totally honest, I'm not expecting to love this game the way I thought I would when they first announced it. I could be wrong, I hope I am.

2023.05.31 19:42 DivineIdylle An ex-employee is coming forward about her experience at Once Upon a Time in France. The hidden side of Melvil Arnt and his 'empire'. Sharing for a friend. I AM NOT OP.

brace yourself, this is a long story but please bare with me. i am putting myself in a very vulnerable position but i need to speak my truth.
—> I don’t think i will ever be able to let go of the fact that I felt so uncomfortable at a job and looked down upon that I had to leave. I was the one facing sexual harassment, and continued to be mocked, called a liar, and even asked to record a tape saying that I made it up so he would have something against me. I’ve waited almost a year to come out about this because i was terrified of consequences- but i don’t care anymore and the truth needs to be spoken. Melvil Arnt, 33, owner of once upon a time in france restaurant in east nashville is a manipulative human being who takes advantage of his employees. I worked at this establishment for 11 months to support myself while attending university. Not only did he violate my personal business and my body, he violated several health code laws. I was terminated in January of 2022 because I spoke about a disgusting instance that went on in the kitchen. previous chef dropped a steak on the floor, rinsed it, re-sauced it, served it, and this piece of meat was consumed by a customer. I took it upon myself to inform the manager (mel’s girlfriend) as any reasonable employee should when witnessing something like this. the next morning I lost my job for “speaking on his kitchen”. the chef kept his job and just received a lecture for it. I have proof of all of these messages as well, where he didn’t deny it, rather found ways to blame me for “gossiping”. messages of this are attached with translations. This is only the start. I got my job back 3 months later after being lectured and blamed for what had happened. other ex servers and i are all witnesses to the following incidents. let me start with an incident i still can’t believe is real. prior to service, i was sweeping the floor, when i came across a long black snake sliding towards my the snake made its way into the side wall when Laurent, chef and co-owner, tapes the seal and that was that. instead of calling a pest control company to prevent it from happening again. I only discovered that roadkill deer was once used in our coq au vin (**EDIT, it was the beef bourguignon not the coq au vin *) nafter serving it for 2 weeks to guests. it’s unbelievable and other servers became aware of this information after as well. sous chef confirmed it. blood from meat leaking all over the fridge where cheeses and water bottles are kept and used during service. black mold in the ice well at the bar. meat not being stored at correct temperature, left to sit in back trailer (where stock is kept) that’s over 120 degrees. maggot infestation stemmed in trailer from this rotted leaking blood (video recording of this attached as well). The list goes on of how disgusting and unkept this place is. —>The night I was sexually harassed by Mel is a night I will never forget. \I also have message proof of Mel asking me not to say anything that happened from the night before. When he found out that I told his girlfriend (manager of the restaurant) he threatened to fire me, my roommate, and my boyfriend at the time. He also requested that we speak in private- not over the phone or text message which says enough about his attempts to blackmail us with each of our jobs. The precaution prior to any sort of conversation was telling of his angst towards this and afraid to lose the “empire” he built. We never ended up having this conversation. He had already spoken to my roommate and my ex partner to threaten all 3 of our jobs if I had dared to speak up. He went as far as asking my ex partner if I would lie on tape so he would have something against me, and the reasonable thing for me to do was to comply. he also forced everyone to leave their phones inside when speaking to them. —>why not speak up sooner? I was a 19 year old girl, terrified for my job that paid the bills, scared nobody would believe me (which they never did) and didn’t want to take a job away from people I once considered family. —> i also have attached messages where he talks about how sexy my 18 year old friend is, who was at his house babysitting his children. He asks for her age and proceeds to say he doesn’t care that she’s in a relationship. regarding his relationship, he lost a moment of judgement with the woman who’s managing his restaurant. —>as for the details of the night i was sexually harassed. what has now become June 4th at around midnight, my ex boyfriend and I were invited back into his office to chat- at this point we had preferred to get along with him since threatening our jobs was something he’d already done in the past if there was lack of compliance. We are invited into his office, where 4 lines of cocaine were already prepared for Mel, my ex, myself and former bartender was present in the room as well. Our friend arrives shortly after and my ex partner leaves the office to get him.. While he is gone, Mel asks me in French (that way bartender wouldn’t be able to translate) to expose myself to him. he goes on and on begging me to take off my dress in front of the both of them since “he is my boss and he has the right”. I will never be able to unhear those words. “je suis ton patron, j’ai le droit”. After expressing several times that that is not who i am, nor am i comfortable doing so in front of two men almost twice my age. i leave the room to find my ex and tell him what happened. he speaks privately with mel and told my ex that he thought we were swingers and that it was okay to ask me that. We were 19 and 20 years old in a relationship, we both worked for him at the restaurant being together. there was no swinging, and that was the only excuse he could come up with in the moment. He asks me again when he has a moment with me alone and asked me to promise that i’d reveal myself to him within 10 years. I said absolutely not. We ended up driving him home that evening because he was too inebriated to drive, let alone run his business. he begged us to stay the night at his house - where I was way too uncomfortable and scared to stay. This is only bits a pieces of the misery this family has posed on me, and I’ve had enough of staying silent. The truth needed to be revealed, and there needs to be consequences for the way he’s treated me as well as his other employees, the way he allowed paying guests to consume unsanitary food and put up this facade all while doing so. i hope this opens some perspective, i’ve been waiting so long to talk about it. attached are messages between him and I with translations provided

2023.05.31 19:19 Objective_Post_1262 100% out :)

Working with kids, I try to have natural consequences as part of my discipline. Yet, when it comes to parents, I've gotten told to act differently. While I’m remaining professional, I’m letting parents face natural consequences.
If the house is filthy when I walk in? I'll clean up my mess only. I'll bring shoes to not step on the crumbs and walk around the mess.
No food in the house for NK? I'll make them the steak that DB was going to enjoy later.
Did the pet take a crap in the master bedroom? I'll send you a text if I see it but don't train your pet and see what happens.
Don’t want to continue the routine/schedule that works when I’m not here? I’ll be looking for another position, having more downtime with cranky nk and your meetings will be interrupted with your unhappy child.
I always give 100% to my NK but I can’t be the only one. I’ll parent how the parent does it. What I do in the home doesn’t matter as much as I thought it did in the long run. However, I do stay with families less than two years so of course being with them long-term makes an impact.
While with every new family I’ve improved my boundaries and what I’m comfortable doing/not doing, I’m giving in 0 effort now. It’s been great for my mental health relating to work + not burning out.
An MB/DB can have a successful career, but that's all they have. Life is actually not easy when you have to pay to have everything else taken care of for you. Take away the funds, what do you have? How resourceful are you?
Being a nanny is extremely undervalued and I hope one day, people realize how important we are.

2023.05.31 16:53 Ill_Dimension6259 Crazy story this weekend

Hello all,
I have a crazy story about a order I had the other day.
So I was down at the Jersey Shore and historically it always been a busy and great area to be dashing. I immediately got an order for $44 and only 11 miles. Of course I accepted it! It was from ACME and was a bunch of groceries I had to deliver to 2 separate houses. I was immediately thrown off however that one of the orders (a much larger one than the other $575 worth) was being delivered to the same ACME that I picked up from. I called the customer and she explained that her husband couldn’t find their address so just put it in the notes. I told them that I couldn’t deliver to another address and that I would call doordash and get it all settled. Doordash told me they couldn’t change the address but to call when I arrived at the new address and they would manually mark it. I told them I had no issues completing the order, however I would like to receive a larger payment as the miles would increase. They gave me $8 extra so now the total was at $52. I complete the first order and make about $10. Now it’s onto the order that had the issues and was MUCH larger. However, the order magically vanished and I had all these groceries in my car. I called doordash and they said that the order was cancelled and there was nothing they could do. I ended up getting into an argument and eventually they added $30 extra so after the cancelled order I was at $48 AND they told me I could keep ALL the groceries. Once again it was $575 worth! Over $200 in steaks and meat too! Safe to say it was a great Memorial Day Weekend down the shore with all these free groceries!
I truly feel bad for the customer but I didn’t have their address or anything and I told them I had no problem delivering it still but Doordash wouldn’t tell me the address.

2023.05.31 16:41 MrC_Red [Update] 100 Great Rock Albums list CHANGES

It's been over a year since the original 100 Great Albums post. Since December 2021, I've listened to 375 Rock albums in total (just for fun, I'm getting paid for this!). Looking back at the original albums, I noticed I have a few with only 1 or 2 listens, whereas now I always try to aim for 3 at the minimum. So as this is a good midpoint (as I plan on stopping at the 20th post), I decided to revisit these certified classic albums and maybe upgrade/downgrade the ratings after more listens. I'll continue to edit grades on other posts if my opinion changes on them later on, but the 100 list got so popular that I feel like it should be left unedited.
Here's the format: Album (year) original grade [orig. Listens] // NEW GRADE {additional listens}
  1. Bob Dylan - Freewheelin' Bob Dylan (1963) B+ [2 listens] // A- {1 listen} More time to digest his lyrics only makes it better. Hard Rain, Blowin in the Wind and Masters of War are still the best here. He had the wisdom and poise of a 70+ year old man, as a 22 year old...
  2. Bob Dylan - Bring It On Home (1965) A- [3 listens] // A+ {2 listens} I can't overemphasize how great side two is of this album is. The songs aren't as musical as side one, so the lyrics are center stage and Bob Dylan ALWAYS captivates your attention. The electric guitar side is even better than I originally thought, but man does the second side has some of his best songwriting.
  3. The Beatles - Help! (1965) B+ [3 listens] // A- {1 listen} This is the album where I think they started making legit "respectable" music. The early Pop music they made before is nice, but it's not that fulfilling. The variety made this age very well: Hide Your Love Away, Ticket to Ride, Seen a Face, Dizzy Miss Lizzy, Help!, Yesterday. It doesn't help that every album that followed it is considered one of the greatest albums of all time, but at this point, it was head and shoulders their best.
  4. Beatles - Rubber Soul (1965) A++ [5 listens] // A+ {4 listens} Highway 61 Revisited gets the credit as being the album to kick off the Rock renaissance of the 60s, but imo, the "album arms race" started with this one. Without it, the musical landscape isn't the same as the concept of an entire album of worthy material wouldn't have been as widely adopted. With the praise out of the way... it's pretty one note. A great Folk Rock album, but as it's often compared to other albums (cough Pet Sounds), it doesn't hold a candle to them.
  5. The Beatles - Magical Mystery Tour (1967) B+ [3 listens] // A {3 listens} This is fun, bro. No it's not a legendary album, hell, it's not really a fully formed one as it's really a soundtrack compilation album. But looking at all the songs, they're just fun. Even a half assed Beatles album is still incredible (no I haven't listened to Yellow Submarine, why do you ask?).
  6. The Doors - Self-Titled (1967) A- [2 listens] // A++ {3 listens} Wow, this is why multiple listens are super important. Many of the songs I thought were "so so" are so much better compared to other Blues Rock I've heard so far. Ray Manzarek is a god on the keys and Jim Morrison is pretty magnificent on every song. It still feels dated, as it's not super complex in it's song structure (like in LA Woman), but every song is great. JUST short of a masterpiece.
  7. The Who - Tommy (1969) B [1 listen] // D++ {1 listen} I was being generous on the original post, I really didn't like this album. After one more listen, I really hate it. The story is complete nonsense and the music really doesn't make up for it. But that's not why I hate it so much; it's the length. If you're gonna be a late 60's mess, be your flamboyant mess and get in & get out. But it's an overly long, drawn out, bore of an album. It's mind boggling that anyone would prefer this over Quadrophena. Pinball Wizard is a great song tho, but don't tell anyone I said that.
  8. King Crimson - In The Court of the Crimson King (1969) A- [1 listen] // A {1 listen} listening to Moody Blues' Days of Future Passed made this album a better listen. That jazz prog rock, with a laid back feel instead of completely psychedelic. The rest of the album (outside the intro) was a better listen this time around with better context, as I remember being bored with much of it. Now that I'm familiar with early Prog Rock, this doesn't feel as foreign anymore.
  9. The Beatles - Let It Be (1970) B+ [3 listens] // A {3 listens} yea, I'm a Beatles stan. Yea, it's probably the weakest Studio Era album. Yea, I enjoy the atmosphere of this album more than the music itself; as a last who-rah of a crumbling friendship that can only be held together by creating music, as that is where the only fun is still found amongst these guys. Do I like to pretend that Don't Let Me Down is apart of this album, so I can grade it higher? Also, yea.
  10. David Bowie - Hunky Dory (1971) A+ [2 listens] // A {2 listens} this is Art Rock. Not being a glam/hard rock fusion makes it less heavy than its successor. It also suffers for not having multiple strong anthems to hold the entire thing. Changes, Life on Mars, Andy Warhol, Queen Bitch are all great songs, but I doubt any are in Bowie's top 5. The other songs don't hold up as much I remembered.
  11. Carole King - Tapestry (1971) A- [2 listens] // A {2 listens} Joni Mitchell's Blue was the driving force this time around. That personal folk storytelling, with that lively piano yet cozy, warm atmosphere. With more listens, I don't really love the lyrical composition as I just love the tone of the thing. I can sit next to a warm fire (or on a window sill) and turn this on and relax. I understand what the genre of Soft Rock is going for now.
  12. David Bowie - the Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars (1972) A+ [2 listens] // Masterpiece {3 listens} Probably didn't give this one too much thought when grading it, as I think I just fell in love with a few songs on it and forgot about the rest. Listening to this front to back... it's flawless. I tried to find a song that wasn't good or that was kinda boring, but they're all perfect. I've listened to Ziggy Stardust and Starman COUNTLESS times in the past year, and will randomly get guitar riffs from random songs off this album to pop in my head. Of his 4 albums I've listened to, I still think Low is his best, as the atmosphere of that Side B is unmatched. But this album is what I'd consider objectively perfect, as every song is great. Easy masterpiece, and a great example of why sitting with an album is just as important as giving it a bunch of listens.
  13. Queen - A Night at the Opera (1975) A- [2 listen] // A {2 listens} Fun stuff. I enjoyed the multiple vocalists being apart of it instead of only Mercury, made it feel like a "stage play" with a revolving cast. I think I might have been a bit to harsh on this one, as most of the album wasn't that memorable, with how amazing Bohemian Rhapsody is. I didn't understand what this album "was" with it's vaudeville style, but now, I see that it's this halfway point between the Hard Rock and the Prog Rock of the 70s, with that theatrical flair to make it standout. Definitely worth checking out.
  14. Sex Pistols - Never Mind the Bollocks, Here's the Sex Pistols (1977) B [2 listens] // A- {2 listens} In 1987, Rolling Stone listed this as the 2nd best album of the last 20 years (since 1967) only after Sgt. Pepper's and man, did that made it easy for me to view this as overrated. I think since listening to more Punk Rock that followed this, I start to see how much better they've done with this compared to others. The guitar playing actually changes throughout the song, Johnny Rotten is actually expressive and feels spontaneous, and the drumming is creative. But the real change in opinion is the guitar playing: the riffs on many of these songs are undeniably awesome, which gives Rotten so much to work on top of. My biggest gripe with Punk Rock is how repetitive some bands can be. Now after more listens to this, I can absolutely NOT say the same can be said about this album. It's varied and expressive; how Punk Rock should be.
  15. Steely Dan - Aja (1977) A [1 listens] // A+ {1 listen} better than I remember. The jazz rock combo is really good, it really leans into the jazz instead of simply using it as an aesthetic. It's not Prog whatsoever, just jazz with traditional Rock instruments. Honestly, you can barely tell if this would considered Rock at all. You really got to like jazz to love this tho. It has that free flowing feel of that genre, from the instrumentation to the flow of the singer. Great album! I'm assuming Steely Dan is hated by the rock community because of this heavy leaning into jazz. Which is understandable, but that doesn't mean they don't make phenomenal music.
  16. AC/DC - Highway to Hell (1979) B+ [2 listens] // B {1 listen} They haven't quite moved away from the Blues sound yet. Back in Black is a pure distillation of what Hard Rock should be as a stand alone genre, but they don't quite have that confidence in being that brash yet. Bon Scott does a lot of heavy lifting as Angus Young doesn't have that swagger in his solos yet. A lot of the songs aren't super great, but they at least still carry energy. Highway to Hell is a fantastic song, but the majority is just meddling around in this laid back blues style.
  17. Dire Straits - Brothers in Arms (1985) B [1 listens] // B- {2 listens} I originally wrote this off as one that I "just didn't get", with how insanely commerically successful it is. Now after listening to their Self-Titled album, it actually becomes even more disappointing as you know how much more they're capable of. There's such a signature style on it and this throws all of it away in exchange of a 80s soft rock sound. Walk of Life and So Far Away are good tunes, due to the guitar hooks; everything else is just shallow.
  18. Pixies - Doolittle (1989) A- [2 listens] // A+ {2 listens} Now, I view this band on the level of the Beatles or Velvet Underground as one of those influential bands that changed music. At the time, Doolittle was too weird for me, but with much more context from this era, this is just insanely great. Compared to Surfer Rosa, the versatility is on a different level. While it is great and varied, it's not exactly "great" in any one area, so I can see why the bands that were influenced by them are viewed as better, as their stuff would've been more focused in one style instead of all over the place. Great album, legendary band.
  19. Alice in Chains - Dirt (1992) A [2 listens] // Masterpiece {4 listens} This album is a grower. Every time I listen to it, I like another song from it. The harmonies are God tier, the guitar riffs, God Tier, the choruses, God tier. Layne Staley and Jerry Cantrell... peanut and jelly. I've given out 2 masterpieces to grunge albums (Nevermind and Ten), so what makes this different from those is that Dirt takes its time in developing songs. So many of these songs start slow and somber, and quickly turn aggressive and passionate! Gnarly riffs on one song, than a few minutes later, you're listening to soft vocals behind a rough, tortured voice. Not a bad song on here, hit after hit, I got to say it's a masterpiece.
  20. Nine Inch Nails - The Downward Spiral (1994) A [3 listens] // A+ {2 listen} the word "gritty" might get thrown around a ton by me, but I still haven't heard such a brutal, harsh sounding album while still having pristine production value. It's nasty and mean. Even in the slow moments, you can feel the pain, anger, or sadness in his voice. Compared to other stuff, it doesn't have that much replay value to it, as it's not exact what one would call "musical". But you got to call it what it is: art.
  21. Green Day - Dookie (1994) A [2 listens] // A+ {1 listen} It's just good music. Yes, the ceiling isn't as high as it could be, but it's so enjoyable that it is always a fun listen. The album is on point from start to finish, it's one of those "if you like one, you like it all" love it or hate it kind of deals. From Burn Out to When I Come Around is just Pop Punk perfection; the backhalf doesn't hold up compared to the start, but it's all still very good.
  22. Weezer - Self-Titled "The Blue Album" (1994) A- [1 listen] // A {2 listens} I only gave this one listen and only revisited it after listening to Pinkerton. Isn't not as dismissable as I originally remembered, as I only gave it one listen. It's more POP- punk thank pop-PUNK compared to Dookie, which led me to not care for it as much. And it's pretty good pop, with a punk style to give it some edge, I guess. I still like Pinkerton more than it, but it can definitely stand alone as a good album itself.
  23. Oasis - Definitely Maybe (1994) A [2 listens] // A+ {2 listens} Liam Gallagher is really good... but Noel Gallagher is the truth, bro. That dude knows how to make a great song. They aren't super complex, but they're all have perfect execution. Mix in that Wall of Sound effect with the guitars, it makes this stand out even more from the overwhelming stacked albums of the 90s. The non-single tracks aren't as strong compared to (What's the Story) Morning Glory?, as that album is damn near perfect imo. Great debut album.
  24. Radiohead - The Bends (1995) B+ [1 listen] // A {2 listens} If Radiohead didn't make this album, I highly doubt I would've listened to this. Which is a shame, because this is a really good album. On the flip side, being a Radiohead album also did more harm than good, as it gets massively overshadowed. I admittedly did a half assed listen to "get to the famous stuff". Fake Plastic Trees, the Bends, and Black Star are great songs. I've listened to Ok Computer so much that I come to think of it as their official "start" of their sound, when in reality, they set the stage on The Bends of what can be possible down the road. Also, they toured with Alanis Morissette with the album, so extra bonus points!
  25. Arcade Fire - Funeral (2004) A- [2 listens] // A+ {2 listens} better than I remembered. I definitely thought it was borderline pretentious, with how the song structure is when I originally listened to it. Now, without that stigma, it's not THAT abstract and I've come to admire the creativeness of it. I always love when there's women vocalists, to mix up the sound and so many different instruments add even more to the variety. It always feels like a new listen, with how many things I'll forget to notice and remember again.
  26. Lcd Soundsystem - Sound of Silver (2007) A- [1 listen] // A {2 listens} The first 4 songs are awesome; Get Innocuous with it's multirhythmic layering is my textbook PERFECT song, a 21st century "Remain in Light" homage. The rest just loses this energy and it's never found again. Compare the first track with the last one and it sounds like two different projects. I know you can call me a hypocrite with how much I love Remain in Light, but at least with that one, it's only the last song and not half of the album. Seriously tho, Get Innocuous is a top 10 song of all time
  27. Tame Impala - Currents (2016) A- [1 listen] // B+ {1 listen} Didn't expect my feelings to decrease, but compared to Lonerism, this is so mid. The lack of a real "great" song (Rihanna's Same Old Mistakes clears) makes it tough to love. It is consistent though, so it's still a good listen; just not a memberable one.
Albums I revisited, but no change in opinion. I feel like with these, I need to explain/defend myself more than I did on the original reviews:
  1. Beach Boys - Pet Sounds (1965) A+ [4 listens] // {3 listens} After listening to a good chunk of their discography, I've come to two conclusions on Pet Sounds: 1) This album is truly lightning in the bottle as they NEVER reach it's level of consistency in quality from track to track. 2) Baroque Pop, while groundbreaking, came and went as fast as it arrived, mainly due to how abstract it is compared to its successor, Psychedelic Rock. Beyond that, there are a few skips that are solely due to wild creative mind of Brian Wilson. As a musical genius, dare I say better than Lennon and McCartney, but as a songwriter? Not even close imo. Rubber Soul, Revolver, Sgt. Pepper's are all great albums, while Pet Sounds can be argued to be their only great album (Wild Honey is also a good listen). I know bringing up the Beatles can be annoying, but the Beatles made great "hit singles" with their song layout, while about only half of the tracks on Pet Sounds are what I'd consider a traditional song. That's probably why I don't think it's so amazing (I kinda feel the same about progressive Rock) as I tend to favor music with a concise structure; even as unoriginal the structure may be.
  2. Jimi Hendrix Experience - Are You Experienced? (1967) B+ [1 listen] // {1 listen} I can't get into it. The songwriting isn't there, especially compared to the stuff that would follow it. This is him at his rawest, but it's a reason why Medium Rare is the most commonly cooked steak.
  3. The Rolling Stones - Let It Bleed (1969) B+ [2 Listens] // {3 listens} Thought I would flip on this album, but surprisingly didn't change at all. I still think Gimme Shelter is the best Rolling Stones song and I still think You Can't Always Get What You Want is still a phenomenal album closer, but everything in between is pretty lackluster (besides Live With Me).
  4. Pink Floyd - Dark Side of the Moon (1973) A [4 listens] // {1 listen} I do enjoy this album more now I know how other Progressive Rock bands sound like, but not enough to raise it a grade. I enjoy Time and the whole second side much more and the "emptiness" of the genre doesn't bother me as much. But the first half is still a little too abstract for my liking. However, I do see how people can view this as their GOAT album with how groundbreaking it's release was at the time and outside of only other Pink Floyd albums, there's nothing else in this genre that really matches the "entering another world" feel it creates.
  5. Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here (1975) A [2 listens] // {1 listen} Similar thoughts to DSotM, but this one has the more catchy "songs" and partly why I love it more. Welcome to the Machine and Wish You Were Here are fantastic, but overall not enough meat for my liking.
  6. The Ramones - Self-Titled (1976) B [2 listens] // {2 listens} I decided to give the Godfathers of Punk another try since I surprisingly came over to like the other Godfather, the Sex Pistols. And yeah... still isn't my thing. Way too one note, monotone singing, guitar takes over too much of the sound, etc. There are a few good hooks here and there, but you basically hear the entire song in the first 15 seconds. Everything I hate about Punk, stemmed from this album and made a lazier copy.
  7. The Smashing Pumpkins - Siamese Dreams (1993) A+ [2 listens] // {1 listen} apparently the Smashing Pumpkins aren't considered grunge? If that's the case, comparing them to a Noise Rock band like a Sonic Youth or a Faith No More, they don't they don't rock out as much as I'd like. Also, I don't like how a few of these songs sound similar to each other. Today and Hummer of course are all top tier songs, but it's just not as much of a comprehensive project as Mellon Collie. Yea, it's definitely not grunge, as it would be much harder if it was.
  8. Radiohead - Ok Computer (1997) A++ [2 listens] // {4 listens} Close, but no cigar. The first 3 songs and the last 3 songs are PERFECT, it's the stuff in between that makes it fall just short. The run of Karma Police into Fitter Happier to Electioneering is also a great moment in the album. Honestly, it's just Exit Music being "okay" that really stops it from being considered a masterpiece in my eyes. Still one of the greatest albums of all time, but not perfect in my eyes. This album is my perfect barometer for an A++ grade; it's objectively a perfect, but on the subjective level, there's nothing that makes me "adore" it. I completely understand how anyone thinking an A++ album I graded is a masterpiece, as I have to personally love it that extra step for it to get to that level.
  9. Radiohead - In Rainbows (2007) A++ [3 listens] // {3 listens A+/A+/A++} Let me end it on a positive review: I didn't really give a thorough listen to it at first, as I don't remember much from it. Over time, my opinion on it dropped as I truly didn't see why people find it so special as they do. Ok Computer easily has the better individual tracks, Kid A is easily the most experimental. After finally revisiting it, maybe because it's a great midway between the two, with a weird electronic-rock-jazz fusion. Feels like there's not a single wasted second; every beat and note is meticulous. It's more chilled and laid back, which threw me off on the repeat listens. The hodgepodge of electronic and experimental sounds, being used in this traditional lofi style instead of being a fast paced one, was the curve that made it hard to love it at first, but now I think that's what makes it unique in its execution. A LOT of these rhythms could have been large and bombastic, and I kinda admire it's restraint in remaining "down in Earth". Also the album cover is noteworthy, where it feels completely spontaneous, never fully knowing what to expect going in. Definitely deserves its high praise
Albums I also revisited, but no change in opinion. Don't have too much to add on these, but listed them as my grades are concrete on these compared to the ones I didn't choose to listen to:
  1. The Velvet Underground & Niko - Self-Titled "The Banana Album" (1967) A+ // Venus in Furs maybe one of the greatest songs ever composed
  2. Cream - Disraeli Gears (1967) A+ // It still holds up, so damn awesome
  3. Bob Dylan - John Wesley Harding (1967) B+ // yeah, he's kinda rambling on this one
  4. The Stooges - Fun House (1970) A- // it's "the Stooges", possibly their best
  5. The Rolling Stones - Exile on Main Street (1972) B+ // Nope, still didn't love it, still a mess
  6. Elton John - Goodbye Yellow Brick Road (1972) A++ // One I thought wouldn't have held up. I shall never question Sir Elton's greatness again
  7. The Eagles - Hotel California (1975) B // Great start, gets worst as it goes on
  8. Patti Smith - Horses (1975) A- // labeling this "Punk Rock" is a nicer way of calling this weird af
  9. The Clash - London Calling (1979) Masterpiece // Not only is there not a bad song here, but every song is perfect. Not great... PERFECT
  10. U2 - Joshua Tree (1987) B+ // I can't deny that there are some good songs on here, even if I'll never listen to it again
  11. The Cure - Disintegration (1989) A // after 375 Rock albums, Plainsong is still the greatest opening track
  12. U2 - Achtung Baby (1991) A- // you gotta admit Bono is pretty cool on this one
  13. Nirvana - In Utero (1993) A // love the Bass guitar's tone on this one, rawer contrast to Nevermind. I'm glad I didn't grow up in the 90s, as this will always sound so new and fresh to me :)
  14. System of a Down - Toxicity (2001) Masterpiece // Similar to Hybrid Theory, if this wasn't labeled as "Nu-metal" (and maybe didn't get so overplayed and copied), even the most pretentious critic couldn't deny how great this is
  15. Green Day - American Idiot (2004) A+ // Feels almost like a different band, the songs are much more nuisanced in its lyrics and its musical structure. That transition from Holiday to Boulevard still gives me goosebumps, such a great song.
  16. Arctic Monkeys - Whatever You Say I Am, That's What I'm Not (2006) A++ // a tour guide to the UK nightclubbing/pub scene, way better than it has any right to be honestly
Bonus: Ween - 12 Golden Country Greats (1996) A [4 listens B/A-/A-/A] Country is still a somewhat foreign genre for me and I've been kinda bored with the concept of it. But it's Ween, so they've fully earned my trust at this point so I'll give this a try. This style is more or less my biggest indifference with the genre: it's not heavy enough to be impactful as rock, yet not soft enough to be as intimate as Folk. It's in this inbetween grey area where it's just not super captivating for me. With that said, it's rarely has been the "so bad, I can't stand to listen to it" levels of boredom that it has been made out as. That signature tongue-in-cheek humor of Ween is here and it makes the project more enjoyable. With Ween, whether it's supposed to be satirical or serious, the quality of songwriting is always top tier, so it's very easy to take whatever they're doing with my full respect rather than viewing it as just a joke. Japanese Cowboy, Mister Richard Smoker, Powder Blue, Piss Up a Rope and You Were the Fool (the best one) are my favorites; but other than Fluffy, every song is a good time. What really sells this album in particular, is that none of these songs would sound out of place on one of their other Rock centric albums, which allows me to extend a lot more grace towards it. Pretty good listen. For what it is, it's pretty consistent, but there's of course better Ween albums out there.

2023.05.31 13:49 Practical_Ad_2148 Should i get myself a GS800 or go another route?

I'm on the fence on buying a gs800 (Belgium here) - it's around 1200$ for one. Not cheap but i don't mind it but what i do wonder about is the huge difference in price US vs Europe, then it makes me wonder about the real build quality though.
About my situation: i'm using a Kamado Joe Junior for a couple of years now and i'm very happy with it (wanted some very portable but that delivers good results), but when it comes to cooking at home for more then just the family (8 people is just not possible).
My first idea was to get myself a KJ Classic 3 or a BGE or KJ Big Joe.
The only downside is those things have is that they are pretty difficult to move around. Idealy the lady of the house doens't want to look at a BBQ they whole year, so it needs to be moved over the garden into the shed.
Is this a doable with a gs800 (can't seem to find any video's demonstrating it) -> moving it a good 30 meters to the shed over in the garden (the grass it quite level and firm).
Now i read lots of positive stuff about the gravity smoker (found out about it here: https://youtu.be/1yE0yg_p7jU and the fire up and forget part it quite a nice feature and also that you can start cooking in just 20 mins, the Kamado always needs some fiddling before you get a stabe temp.
But then i browse this forum and i see horror after horror a i start to doubt alot. How long is it gonna last with all the electronics, fans, etc. I am going to replace lots of part very fast, will parts still be available in 5 years or so. The grease fire issues.
The cooks i will mostly do are babybackribs, chickens, picanha/steaks, shrimps, salmon, burgers and sausages, legs of lamb, pizza but also want to be able throw in some veggies in there. Also on my list is pulled pork.
Smoke/charcoal flavour is en good tenderness are upmost important for us.
Appreciate your advices on what type of BBQ to get or upcoming models that you know off?

2023.05.31 08:27 milleribsen Worcestershire sauce sauce?

I recently had an amazing meal at Melvyn's in palm springs, which is a classic steak house of the rat pack variety and while everything we had was amazing I was confounded by the sauce on my plate.
I got their beef Wellington, which was the most tender beef dish I've had in my life but it was sitting in a very tasty sauce which tasted mostly of Worcestershire sauce but less intense. My first thought was that it must be a mounted Worcestershire, but it wasn't super glossy like I'd think, and it wasn't as bitter as I would expect of a reduction of Worcestershire.
Any thoughts of what it might be?

2023.05.31 05:09 Crazycococat19 The sides will come out with your steak, unless ask before

So where I work is mostly breakfast items, but we do have dinner, if they don't want pancakes or waffles. We are not a steakhouse or anything fancy. If someone order a t-bone dinner or any other dinner items, they have 2 sides and it comes with a piece of garlic bread.
So any an older lady and her I assume daughter came in (place was dead at that time, I was just replenishing our stuff, and some cleaning) my manager was cleaning the front door, so she sat them down in a table/booth and told them that I'll help them. I introduce myself and ask if they would like anything to drink, they both said no. So I left them be and let them look over the menu and our happy hour menu. I came back a few minutes later and ask if they are ready again they said no.
After 10 minutes they were finally ready to order. They both order T-bone dinner one was well done and the older lady order a medium ( this was my bad for not clarifying med rare or med well). The daughter (?) Wanted loaded mashed potatoes, and broccoli. The older lady wanted a house salad with ranch and loaded mashed potatoes. One order raspberry iced tea and the other just unsweetened iced tea. I put in the order, now for us we don't take out the salad before the meal, we take it out the sametime as the meal since it's was a side. They have different choices besides a salad. I know they usually take the salad out before the meal. If someone request they want the salad before their meal comes out we will give it to them. I know it weird.
Well after a few minutes while their food was being made I went by their table and refilled both of their drinks, the older lady never asked me for her salad. When their food was up that's when the older lady asked where is her salad. I told her that I'm bringing it out to her right now. She got piss, I mean she threw a child tantrum. She told me that salad should always come out before the main meal, never at the sametime. I told her that we are train to bring out the salad with the meal, especially if it was one of the sides. She didn't want to listen, she just shoo me away, so I left. Couple of minutes later I came by and refilled again both of their drinks, asking if everything was alright. She said yes but was still mad about the salad, complaining how now she has to eat her salad while her t-bone was getting cold, again I apologize for the inconveniences. I left after that.
No less than five minutes later, I came by to see if they want other refill, the daughter said no. The older lady (while I was asking if she wanted another refill), she toss her steak knife on her plate angrily. Pushed the syrup and sugar caddy on the ground and started yelling at me saying that she doesn't want any of this "crap" on her bill. I asked her what was wrong, she immediately told me that it was the salad (while mind you she was eating still when she was yelling at me) how she wanted before the meal and how she now have to eat that instead of her t-bone. How she has to eat her salad fast cause her t-bone is getting cold cause I didn't give her the salad before. She kept complaining about the same thing over and over, but she says it in different ways, but still means the same thing. After a cool minute of her complaining about the salad, she grab the steak knife and shove it in the tbone and complained how it was well done not medium rare. While this was going on her daughter was just sitting there eating her food and not saying anything or doing anything. I apologize about the meat saying it was my fault on that one and I can have the cook make a new one for her. She shook her head and said no, and that I ruined it all cause I didn't give her the salad first. Also she didn't want broccoli, she wanted the salad, (the cook accidentally gave her some broccoli, I told him she didn't order that, he told me it's fine she can have it since he cooked it already. Tbh she was about to get broccoli before she chose the salad.) I told her that the cook gave it to her by accident, she nodded her head and said "I know your cook gave it to me by accident but I didn't want the damn broccoli, what are you going to charge me for this!?" I told her no since he made it by accident it's one the house. She shook her head and grab one of the broccoli and threw on the ground saying she doesn't like broccoli (even though she was telling her daughter (?) How she likes eating steam broccoli with melted butter. Before she even order)
I went to my manager and told her the situation, she asked if I ask if she wanted it remade, I told her yes and I even said that I can replace it with something else. I even told her that she threw the broccoli on the ground and she dropped the syrup and sugar caddy on the ground (oh forgot to mention we have carpet so yeah syrup on carpet is not a good thing). She told me to just finish restocking the back and she'll take care of it. I did, I just hear the old lady yelling and screaming about her salad. After awhile I see the daughter pay and leaves. The old lady walked out before her daughter payed. Turns out that my manager comp her whole meal including her drink. Just cause she wanted her salad before her meal, the daughter just payed for hers and left. My manager took it off the bill after taxes so I lost about $29.00😮‍💨. If she did it before tax I would had just lost about $24.
After they left, I had to clean up their mess. I grab the mop from the back and "mopped" up the syrup. Picked up the sugar caddy and swept up the broccoli and whatever paper she threw on the ground. I asked my manager if I was in the wrong. If I should had taken out the salad first before her t-bone. She told me no I wasn't, cause we are trained to take out all the sides (if they're on separate plates away from the dinner items) at the same time as the main plate. Unless they asked beforehand. I told her it was my bad for not clarifying about the medium on the steak, she said that it's fine it happens, just try to remember to ask if they mean med rare, med, or med well.
I had another bad experience a day later, on the exact same table number. But I'll write about that on later. Sorry about the long read. TL;DR old lady threw a child like tantrum about a salad not coming out before her steak. The way we were train, was to take out all sides at the same time as the meat. Unless they ask before their meal comes out.

2023.05.30 22:20 Old-Standard-2410 I need some help making the most above average steak I can

So for some context, I'm a culinary student. On memorial day, I was over at my father's friend's house to celebrate and my dad told me: "You may be good at a lot of things but you can't out cook my steak"
Now, I'm not one for competition, and I have very little experience with steak but I told him maybe I could, maybe not. But if I was someone betting, I'd probably put money on me rather than him. I've been doing a lot of studying, but I realize I don't need to make the BEST steak, only a BETTER steak. My dad is a salt, pepper, gas grill. That's all I need to beat. Any ideas?
