/r/QOTSA Official Band of the Week 19: THE STROKES
2020.09.11 13:14 House_of_Suns/r/QOTSA Official Band of the Week 19: THE STROKES
Sometimes you are in the mood for a fantastic gourmet meal. Appetizers. Soup. Salad. Multiple courses. Sauces. Wine pairings. Dessert. A complex, long affair where incredible thought is put into each and every small detail, to create a singular experience. Sometimes you just want a cheeseburger. I have to believe that the more complex you make something, and the more overproduced and over-thought it is, the less and less it appeals to the masses. Radiohead, for example, had a bunch of great early guitar rock albums. They then followed up those straightforward albums by completely changing their sound. I am pretty sure that their latest album was made by setting guitar pedals on fire and mixing those noises in a computer with feedback and whale song and firecrackers and 6 year olds learning the violin and you can guess the result. They still had a number one album. Shit. They are a terrible example. I should never write these things when I am hungry. Look, my point is, there is something to be said for a truly amazing cheeseburger. Our band this week keeps it ultra-simple. They have perfected post-punk garage rock. If you are looking for soaring glissandos and orchestral numbers that have multiple guest singers, this is not the band for you. They are quick, they are dirty, and they are low-down. They are the spiritual heirs to The Ramones, The Dead Kennedys, and The New York Dolls. You guessed it, today’s artist is none other than THE STROKES About Them If you have ever been to Italy, you know that pizza there is gourmet. You can have it multiple ways, with multiple doughs, and the fresh toppings are amazing. It is the OG of the pizza world, and no one does it like them. If you have been to Chicago and had real Chicago Deep Dish, you know it is a religious experience. Almost lasagna like, the multiple seasonings and essences create a smorgasbord of savory and gooey goodness that will harden your arteries after the first bite. It is the most complex pizza to make and when it is done well, it is fantastic. And then there is New York pizza. It is cheese and sauce and pepperoni on baked dough. It is by far the easiest one to make. It is simple. It is quick. It is greasy. And yet, New York Pizza is probably the hardest one to get right, because of its simplicity. There is nowhere for anything bad to hide. Anyone can do a mediocre simple pizza (looking at you, Little Caesar’s ) but it takes amazing talent to take something so simple and make it so good. The Strokes are great at making New York pizza. Well, metaphorically that is. I mean, they may suck at cooking any kind of food. But these five guys from New York are amazing at making simple, driving garage rock. This band has been together since 1998. They feature lifelong Mets fan Julian Casablancas on vocals, Nick Valensi on guitar, keys and backing vocals, Albert Hammond Jr. on guitar, keys and backing vocals, Nikolai Fraiture on bass, and Fabrizio Moretti on drums. Much like our epochal monarchs, the vocalist is the driving force in songwriting. Casablancas met all members back in his youth, and the five proved to be quite the talented live act. With a tight 14 song set, they made rounds on the small bar loop across Manhattan, and even got to a popular club called the Mercury Lounge. Their playing was impressive enough for the Lounge’s Booking agent to quit his job completely and become the band’s manager. They found the time to record some demos, which culminated in the release of The Modern Age EP back in 2001. This thing was lightning in a bottle, and the labels knew it. And so, it sparked one of the most competitive bidding wars for a rock band in recent years. In the end, they signed with RCA and got to work on their debut album. And God, is it amazing. Is This It was a renaissance of sorts. In a time where the radio was (and still is) largely oversaturated by post production monsters of shitty pop, the Strokes are a breath of fresh air. They take their influences and wear them proudly on their sleeves, and shine new light on what made rock so much fun in the first place. This album was recorded on no more than 11 audio tracks: there are no gimmicks, no tricks, and no horses beaten to death. The drums are energetic, punchy, and groovin’. The bass is driving, and harkens back to the urging simplicity of Punk Rock. The guitars dance from ear to ear with these wonderfully catchy, clean repeating lines that’ll be stuck in your head for days. And of course, Casablancas’ confident vocal delivery, recorded with compression & distortion, is as distinct and powerful today as it was back then. Interestingly, the album’s racy cover art garnered some complaints from their label, which led to delays and an alternate cover in the U.S. All the same, critics absolutely adored the record. The band set out on their first world tour, and hit the studio as soon as they got back. As it turns out, Is This It was just the first slice (or the first 11 of them… learn some self restraint already, jeez). In 2003, The Strokes released their sophomore album, Room On Fire. If you liked their debut, you’re in for a treat. Most of the tracks on this record would be right at home on the first album - not that that’s inherently bad, since these ones are just as jammin’. Tracks like 12:51 and Reptilia scratch that itch for pure, catchy guitar rock so, SO well. Also, fun fact: the original producer for the record was going to be Nigel Goderich, but he was fired by the band when they found the efforts - and I quote - “Soulless”. This was notable since Goderich is famed for producing almost every Radiohead album. In the end, The Strokes just went with the same guy they had before. But, when it came time for their third album, change was in the air. They once again tried for their first producer, but guitarist Hammond Jr. decided to introduce the band to a new producer half way through. As a result, there are some ever so subtle production changes, among other developments to their sound. First Impressions of Earth (2006) is a step away from their first two albums - They tried some weird stuff, they tried some new stuff, and they even threw in some old stuff for good measure. Overall, the album definitely has some stand out tracks, but was slightly less well received by critics. Following ANOTHER world wide tour, plus some more tours of the US, the boys were tired. A hiatus ensued. And 5 years later, it was time to get Angular.Angles released in 2011, and if First Impressions was them testing the water, Angles was more like fully dunking in their head. They continued to experiment with the production, and even tried including more keyboard parts. They added backing vocals for the first time, and played around with overdubbing in general. Look, most of these changes sound like nothing today, but this is The Strokes here - this is like convincing your Italian grandfather to try chicken on pizza. All in all, some critics liked their experimentation, while others found the album a bit fractured and inconsistent. Luckily, the wait for the next album was not quite so arduous. People didn’t even know this one was coming - the band pulled a complete media black out, and did not advertise at ALL. If we continue the water analogy, Comedown Machine (2013) is like saying “fuck it” and diving straight in to the pool. This thing sounds more like a new wave, 80’s revival record. The synth is more present than ever, and the vocals are a fair bit cleaner. Critics kind of just shrugged - some applauded the changes, while others questioned if this was even meant to be a Strokes album in the first place. They then waited 7 years to release another record. Look, at least it wasn’t 13 years (COUGHToolCOUGH). Okay, it wasn't really THAT bad, since the band released a 3 song EP back in 2016. Future Present Past was consistent with the style of their recent albums, and it even had some of that classic compressed-to-shit vocal sound. The songs left many hungry for more. They took 4 years, set out some time to work on an album, and found a new creative partner in the form of Rick Rubin. This dude, if you don’t know him already, is a total master of the music world, and I think the only thing longer than his discography is his beard.The New Abnormal, which was released in April of this hell year, is his most recent production credit. This album is their most different yet. As far as that water analogy, you’re now fully submerged, sitting on the bottom of the pool, making out with a fish. The band uses more 80’s sounds than ever before, heavily featuring the synth in places and leaning further into the New-Wave style in general. This time, critics were down for it, and hailed it as the best, most successful development of their sound to date. And that completes their discography. It's an interesting one, and even if you’re not one for synthy-electronica pop, their first few albums are absolutely worth your time and attention. These guys are an inspiration. Much like Josh and the Boys, they pioneered their own sound and are one of the true greats of modern rock. They’ve influenced countless young musicians, including one notable arctic simian - Alex Turner (who really just wanted to be one of the Strokes). Look, if you don't go listen to them right now, I will be angry, and I will revoke your pizza license. Don't try me. Links to QOTSA The Strokes, influential garage rock bois that they are, have musical connections in almost every direction. And as we know, when we mention musical connections, all roads lead to Homme. Julian Casablancas has worked directly on a QotSA album, lending his voice to everyone’s favourite audible grime bath, Sick, Sick, Sick. His distorted delivery was never more at home, since we all know just how slick, energetic, and infectious this song is. Josh and Casablancas have also worked together on a cover of Marvin Gaye’s Mercy Mercy Me, which released as a B-Side to The Strokes single You Only Live Once. Casablancas shares vocals with Eddie Vedder on this recording, and Josh provides the backbeat with his drumming talents. Oh, and before I forget, Josh and Julian have also crossed paths on a charity album by the name of “Live from Nowhere Near You, Volume Two”. Finally, there’s one last connection worth mentioning. Homme, wonderchild that he is, has a production credit on a side project related to the Strokes. Josh lent his hand to Nick Valensi’s band, a group by the name of CRX. Their debut, New Skin, was released in 2016. This record is definitely worth listening to if you’re a fan of the Strokes, and dont mind those 80’s influences. It even has some album art by Boneface, whom we all know and love, so it’s gotta be worth your time. Their Music Hard to Explain -- A throwback video launches a throwback band Last Nite -- A video homage to appearing on the late show. Pretty sure they stole the set to the dating game. NOTE: Julian Y E E T S his mic stand at 1:03. THIS BECOMES IMPORTANT LATER. Someday -- Guest starring Slash. We also get to play Family Feud. I watched this video twice and developed a hacking cough from all the smoking. 12:51 -- If you never saw the original Tron movie, just watch this 2:32 epic for a taste. Reptilia -- EXTREME CLOSE UP The End Has No End -- Late Night TV and Mila Kunis? Sign me up! Juicebox -- A killer bass line anchors this tune ‘Juicy-Juice’ by ‘Stroke’. Heart in a Cage -- a tribute to the indifference of NYC You Only Live Once -- We have a concept video. We all wear white and the room fills with oil. WTF, you wore grey? Get your ass back behind the drum kit. Fuck. Maybe no one will notice. Under Cover of Darkness -- A direct sequel to You Only Live Once, where everyone miraculously survived being imprisoned in a tank of oil only to have to go to an opera house. NOTE: Julian Y E E T S his mic stand AGAIN, this time at 2:07, when he sings the line “Everyone’s been singing the same song for ten years.” THIS VIDEO CAME OUT TEN YEARS AFTER LAST NITE. Coincidence?!?!?! Taken for a Fool -- This is what a video looks like when you are on drugs, if it was shot by someone who is also on drugs. If you get the spins, steer clear. One Way Trigger -- I can’t explain this video to you. You must experience it. You will not look at Captain America the same way again. All the Time -- This video was made up of left over bits from other videos. At the Door -- Heavy Metal meets Watership Down in this 80s-inspired video Bad Decisions -- Man, do the boys ever love starting their videos with someone watching an old CRT TV. Oh, and the clones are a commentary on modern music. Sounds important. Brooklyn Bridge to Chorus -- There is no official video. This is a fan made one set in Miami Vice and the 1980s. This song will make you want to break in someone’s house, toast all their bread, and put it back in the bag. Ode to the Mets -- An endless pull back, through fandom and memory.

2020.09.07 03:00 Vertigo-10118 trans gay nb guy looking for someone to talk to
Hello! I'm Max, i'm an 18 year old gay nb guy who likes punk and indie music, talking to people, drawing and sometimes science. I'm looking for friends or maybe someone to date? I'm from Chile so i guess for most it would be ldr, and I'm polyamorous but I am okay with dating only one person. In any way, I'm looking forward to talking to other trans people.
2020.09.03 06:03 RangersOtherAccountI (M16) am terrible with making choices and its making me way to anxious.
To preface this, I have never been in a relationship and I have never been one to "Hit on Girls." The only date I've been on was to a school dance, and that is a long separate story. And until recently I have never had a "crush" on somebody. One of my favorite hair styles for a girl is shorter hair. IDK why its just something I like (probably because it looks really punk). This does make me vary cautious cause most of the shorter hair girls I've met are lesbian, and that can be really awkward for anyone. (I'd like to say I don't have those lesbian fetishes that some people do, I fully support LGBT+ love who ever you love) So there is a girl, my age, at my school with short hair. I am interested in her, but I don't know if she is gay or not. She doesn't do a lot of make up or dress as feminine as other girls. But for the sake of this post we will assume that she is into dudes for now. She is an artist, has adorable dogs, and has a nice voice. I have hung out with her and her friends in person before, and we share a class in school. We even have a rivalry going in the class with the ongoing icebreaker game the teacher is making the class do. Now I like extreme music, hardcore and metal stuff. Although she has the punk look I don't think she will like the stuff I listen too. When I asked her about her musical tastes she shrugged it off and didn't really name any bands/artists. Now, I've have come to learn she listens to K-pop. Her art account used to be filled with K-pop dudes, and her Twitter is following a bunch of K-pop group. Nothing against K-pop, I just need someone who can groove to the same shit as me. Music is very important to me. Also another flaw to me is the fact she goes to my school, say it doesn't work out. I have to deal with the awkwardness of seeing her in the halls and sharing classes with her if things get ugly. Last Saturday I was hanging out with some friends for the last day of summer, and one of them told another to give my a girls number after they saw my painted nails. They basically gave me this girls number since we are kinda similar in hobbies and interests. We start texting and it was kinda hard to talk to her. She was very minimal with her messages. And her response times were all over the place. But we get along. We have shared albums we like and videos games we both like. She's got a nerdy side, into Metalcore bands, we both like Zelda and Fantasy games. It, we could probable get along really well if get to know each other. She also looks amazing. She has pink hair and looks really good. Basically Goth/Emo. My type. And she has a name that is very uncommon that is adorable, I wont say it here, but trust me its great. She also is a musician like me, we both play drums. Now, I think she might be a stoner, which my parents probably won't approve, and I'm not really into drugs or alcohol, they never interest me. So I'm just gonna mark some pros in cons. I might mention some more stuff that i haven't mentioned yet. Short hair girl will be SHG and Goth Girl will be GG Pros of SHG: Artsy, Short Hair, smart, I know her friends and they are chill, already have a friendship and I have already hung out with her. Cons of SHG: We go to the same school/awkward break up, Might be Gay (nothing wrong with being gay), might not tolerate my music. Pros of GG: My type, into the same games as me, into the same music as me, Goth, Musician, probably a bit more adventurous, friends are trying to hook me up with her Cons of GG: Might be a Stoner, Don't know as well, hard to talk to. Finally we are at my dilemma. I feel really weird being interested in both of them. I feel attached to SHG but GG is just more attractive to me. I am having trouble letting go to either of them. I am terrible at making choices, so this hard for me. I have already given SHG complements and hung out with her. Its weird to me, I was told to talk to both of them and who ever you don't end up with stays a friend. But that just feels wrong to me. TLDR: I cant decide between two girls. This is really weird for me to talk about but this is anonymous so that most of y'all prob don't know me. Thanks for reading this, I am open to all thoughts. Maybe we could get Team Short Hair Girl vs Team Goth Girl going or something lmao. Any thoughts, advice, opinions are welcome, just go easy on me, I'm new to this stuff. And apologies for any grammar and spelling flaws, Ive had a long day. Thanks again.
guess i’m just looking for outside advice since no one in my life is poly. my gf (30) and i (28) have been dating a couple of months now and their gf (28) and my gf have been partners for 8 years now. i’m the first real partner my gf has had since them becoming poly so i know there are a lot of kinks to work out which is expected. my issue is is that it seems when we hangout their partner is either asking when they will be home or needs them for emotional support so my partner feels obligated to go home when this happens. before we get super upset about this let me explain why i’m not upset just annoyed but also not annoyed because i understand. like i said they’ve been together for 8 years, so from what i know it’s hard for her to sleep without my partner being there and she does deal with a lot of trauma from her actual life. in her dating life the boys she’s chosen have been racist and other things so like yea a lot going on with her. so like i get it. the other night we were loitering as punks do and i get the call because my partners phone died and we were walking back to the car to charge it. we had just had such a good day we were just being gay and having fun then it was cut short. she was upset and worried which is understandable but my gf felt the need to go home. i was visibly upset my gf was upset it just wasn’t a good feeling. they asked how i was feeling and i told them like i get it but i’d rather you end the night and not her which is a valid feeling but i still feel horrible for saying it. talking to my gf this morning they told me that their partner didn’t talk to them when they got to the house and it’s just been a bad morning between them. i feel like i got them in trouble. i know whatever dynamic they have going on has to be worked through but i want to talk with the both of them about the situation and i’m totally scared. i also feel like more understanding while i know i should be more upset. i just don’t know how to say what i want to say without addressing her trauma and just keeping it about our time together being our time while also not being afraid to “confront” her. i feel like my two moms are fighting and i’m playing with bubbles in the backyard avoiding it and i don’t want to avoid it but i don’t think she notices she’s doing it and i’m just really finding it hard to find the courage to talk to my gfs partner about it. i feel totally comfy chatting about it with my gf of course but yea. how can i make a safe space for this conversation.
2020.09.03 00:06 RocketMan_672My pitch for a possible Frasier revival...
So, there’s a lot of ideas being thrown around that the Frasier revival is going to revolve around Frasier living with his son, Freddie, and, while I can’t confirm that that won’t be the premise of the revival, I can confirm that I wouldn’t really like it if they went down that road. First off, I am aware that Freddie had some weird patches, like that episode where he was a goth for instance, but I think that he wouldn’t have grown up to be remarkably different from Frasier; Lilith is too formal and domineering of a parent for Freddie to grow up to be someone resembling Martin or a ‘stereotypical millennial’ like people have been throwing around. Having three Frasiers this time around - because remember we’d get Frasier, Freddie and Niles would presumably still be around too - sharing the space isn’t going to make for good comedy, so he’s off the cards, at least as a main character anyway. Second, I just didn’t like Freddie that much. At all. I found him irritating for reasons I can’t quite put my finger on and I still find all of his episodes quite “skippable”. Not to blow smoke up my own a**, but I think I can do a better job at constructing a character in a single Reddit post than Frasier did with Freddie in 11 seasons. So, the fact of the matter is we need Martin, but John Mahoney is no longer with us, so there needs to be a ‘new Martin’, not a carbon copy - because I think that would make for extremely cringe-y television - but a character that fills the void that John Mahoney’s passing has left. We can’t use Freddie for reasons stated above, so I propose we use... Alli! Who’s Alli? You might ask. Well, you remember Roz had that baby in the original series and named her Alice, well, that’s her now, albeit with a name tweak - that I’ll explain later - and an actual personality this time. However, before I delve into Alli’s story, a little bit of background: Between the end of the original series and the present, Frasier married and subsequently divorced Charlotte. He also had a radio gig whilst living in Chicago, but, as the world is beginning to choose podcasts over radio more and more, the radio station closed down and Frasier decided to retire rather than try and find another job. Now, after Martin’s death, Frasier has decided to move back to Seattle to be closer to family. Even though he maintains that it is not the same because it is ‘on the floor below his old apartment’, the series opens just as Frasier has moved back into an apartment completely identical to the one from the original series. Played for comedic effect but with kind of serious undertones, Niles claims that Frasier yearns for ‘the good old days’ again, and his obsession with having everything identical is a manifestation of this desire. Frasier denies that he wants the apartment to be identical, right before insisting that Niles help him move the couch because it is ‘slightly to the left of where it was.” After settling into his ‘new’ apartment, Frasier finds retirement in Seattle not what he thought it would be. While he does find it familiar and comforting, Frasier feels quite left out and lonely in his retirement to Seattle, since neither Niles, Daphne, Roz or many of the side characters at KACL have retired. Niles and Daphne claim they’re still ‘saving up’ to afford a top tier college for both of their two children, even though it’s becoming clear that their son, David - a slightly aloof 17-year-old who only seems to be interested in soccer and punk rock - is not quite Ivy League material. Roz, on the other hand, refuses to retire until she gets KACL back up on its feet again, even though the now-unpopular radio station has been at death’s door for years. When Frasier questions Niles about why Roz has remained so obsessed over ‘rescuing’ KACL when its demise seems inevitable by now, Niles replies with a cryptic: “Well, what else does she have to obsess over?” In an effort to reacquaint Frasier with Seattle and properly reconnect with him, Niles convinces Frasier to host an elaborate wine and cheese tasting at his apartment with esteemed guests. The evening turns disastrous when a conversation between Roz and Daphne about their respective lives directly before the party turns gloomy, and they reach for the wine for comfort. This soon results in Roz crying about how much of a failure she is and, after Roz struggles to find a positive quality about David when prompted, Daphne crying about having raised an aimless son. After an offhanded comment by Roz about how David would ‘kick butt’ in a public school - since him and his sister go to a ritzy prep school - while her daughter, Esty, would be ‘eaten alive’ in an attempt to comfort Daphne, she then cries about having raised a poor-spirited daughter. Meanwhile, David, who was forbidden from going to a music festival and instead told to watch his sister while Frasier and Niles hosted their tasting and Roz and Daphne had a girl’s night, sneaks out anyway. In case it is not already obvious, Esty was not only named after Hester Crane, but mirrors Niles and Frasier in her behaviour, so, while David sneaks out, Esty is shown miming a conductor while listening to classical music through her headphones. Before he leaves, David gives her a brief look of bewilderment. At the music festival, David is surprised when a punk rock band on the experimental side enters the stage with Alice as their lead guitarist, except she’s now introduced as Alli. While they are a semi-talented band, their style gets them booed offstage, as the festival is filled mainly with mainstream and cover punk rock bands. Afterwards, David meets Alli backstage, where it is quickly made clear that she has had little to do with her mother or the Cranes for some time. The rest of Alli’s band appears and confronts about the extremely negative reception that they just received. Here, it is revealed that Alli’s stubbornness to change - which is meant to resemble Martin’s - has been the main factor in the band not changing their style even if they are continually booed offstage. The rest of the band has agreed that they cannot go on like this and announce they are changing with or without Alli’s permission and she instantly threatens to leave the band if they go ahead with it. The scene immediately cuts to the band members eagerly speeding away in their van without Alli. David, though air-headed at times, is big-hearted and assures Alli that he can help her since she is now stranded in Seattle without anywhere to go. After she recoils at the idea of David taking her to his parents for help, he remembers the wine and cheese party taking place at Frasier’s apartment and tricks Alli into thinking that the party is just ‘a place where a friend of his lives that she can go’ - as Alli was too young in the original series to properly remember the famous apartment. At the wine and cheese tasting, the gathering has been completely ruined by Daphne and Roz’s unruliness, with the latter having taken to crying over the laps of random party guests and the former having taken to drunkenly seeking validation from them that she has been a good mother to her children. Frasier and Niles are beyond mortified at the events unfolding around them, although Frasier admits to Niles in the kitchen that the whole affair is reminding him of the dinner parties in the original series and while he is overcome with embarrassment, he admits that he thinks he is beginning to feel whole and truly at home in Seattle again. Niles, as they walk out of the kitchen, adds on to Frasier’s statement that, while he is horrified now, he doesn’t see things getting any worse than this. On cue, the door swings open and there stand David and Alli, dressed in their best festival gear. Alli instantly recognises the Cranes and her mother and both parties are shocked at the sight of the other. Alli, while she greets her, is extremely distant and brisk with her mother, addressing her simply as “Roz” instead of her mom. David explains himself and Alli to his parents, stating beforehand that he “found Alli while taking a walk”, despite his obvious change of appearance since Niles and Daphne left their home earlier. Alli just wants to leave, preferring to ‘couch-surf and hitchhike her way to somewhere’ than ever face the prospect of having to live with her mother again, which seems like the only solution before her. Roz pulls Frasier away and proposes an offer to him: In exchange for reviving Frasier’s show on KACL and giving him a job, he gives Alli a place to stay. At first, while he instantly realises having a radio gig again would mean true fulfilment, Frasier refuses, citing that Alli will be “just like his dad living with him again”. Frasier suddenly pauses when he realises what he has just said and, after a brief moment of silence, Roz admits to Frasier that Niles told her about his behaviour when he was moving into the ‘new’ apartment - again, an exact replica of the one from the original series - and his desire to have everything the way it used to be. Roz then asks Frasier if he can make this one last thing just how it used to be. Frasier eventually relents, but on one condition. The final scene of the episode before the credits play resembles the last scene of the original series, except the camera pans across Frasier’s booth in the opposite direction, opting to show the window behind him first, which shows Niles, Daphne, Alli, David, Esty and others watching him through the window. As Frasier signs off, thanking the station personally for the second chance, the window beside him is shown, showing Roz behind the producer’s desk. Alli, meanwhile, has kind of taken up a Kirby kind of role at the station - like an assistant to Frasier and Roz among others - even though making her resemble Kirby is the last thing I want to do, because Kirby sucked lol. A staff member enters Roz’s side of booth immediately after the end of show and announces that it was the highest-rating segment on KACL in over a decade and everyone appears ecstatic. While it appears as a happy ending, severe tension between Roz and Alli still exists, David’s aloofness still concerns his parents and the question of who will replace Roz as station manager looms over KACL. The end credits show David, Niles and Daphne arriving home the night Alli arrived in Seattle. Niles, having realised that David snuck out to go to the music festival, chews him out as he directs him upstairs. Daphne follows, but notices Esty still conducting in time with the music coming out of her headphones in the living room and gives her the exact same look of bewilderment that David gave her earlier before heading upstairs. Esty has not noticed her, nor her father or brother, come in. And that’s it... Just to clarify a few things and to tie up some loose ends: On the topic of why Alli and Roz are estranged, it’s slowly revealed that Alli had a music teacher in high school that she was extremely close to and whom she eventually saw as father figure; it was this teacher, in fact, that introduced Alli to the style of music that she now simply cannot leave behind. This teacher was also the first person that Alli came out to. That’s right, motherf**kers, Alli is the show’s first starring character who identifies as openly gay. I think that it’s a sin that a show with a cast and crew that’s included so many LGBT people never did it in the original series, so I’m out to fix it. On a semi-related note, on the topic of Alli’s name change, I came to the conclusion that Alli simply has a more androgynous tone that the obviously feminine Alice. While Alli is by no means non-binary, the character is not afraid to turn away from a lot of stereotypically feminine interests and most definitely does not behave, as old white people would put it, ‘like a lady’. Also, again, while she is not non-binary, Alli’s dress sense and the way she presents herself at times is not strictly feminine or masculine. Anywho, I just can’t see a name like Alice fitting the character anymore and, even though Alli is also a feminine name, I do think it comes across as a bit of a halfway point between Al and Alice and therefore the name is not as staunchly feminine as Alice. The fact that Alli was born as Alice is not retconned either, it is explicitly stated that she made the decision that she would prefer to go by Alli some time ago but before that she was still Alice. Anyway, back to Alli and Roz’s relationship and how it got so bad, Roz eventually ‘decided’ that she was in love with Alli’s beloved teacher, according to Alli, and began to pursue him. After things ended extremely awkwardly between the two, the teacher abruptly told Alli that he could not teach her anymore and left Seattle. Alli struggled to cope with losing what almost felt like a second father and, as a result, her and Roz’s relationship deteriorated significantly. After high school, Alli moved closer to her mother’s extended family in Wisconsin for college and has had little to do with her mother ever since. Alli is not a carbon copy of Martin, but her personality at times clashes with Frasier’s just as his did. She is not overly materialistic nor does she put much thought into what others think of her and, as I mentioned above, Alli can be quite stubborn and, while she is not as traditional as Martin was, unwavering on matters that she holds close to her heart. For example, in one theoretical revival episode, Martin’s old chair ends up in Frasier’s possession again. After she sees that David - who was extremely close with Martin - is visibly upset by Frasier’s announcement that he is simply throwing the chair away, Alli passionately argues that Frasier simply cannot do that. Also in contrast to Frasier’s staunch moral compass - take “Oh my god, I’m dating Lana/Lorna Linley for completely self-serving reasons and I feel the need to tell her, blah, blah, blah…” for example, Alli at times has little moral compass. For example, in a later episode in the theoretical revival, Alli receives news that her former bandmates were arrested for drug possession not long after she was kicked out of and the band’s dog, Billie, a Yorkshire Terrier, needs a guardian. She is adamant that the dog is not her responsibility and she owes none of her former band mates anything, Frasier, however, after misinterpreting a conversation between Alli and a lawyer, thinks Billie is a very small reptile and convinces her that taking him in is ‘the right thing to do’. He fails to realise that this means an extremely lively dog will be living with him again until it’s too late. HOWEVER, and this is a big HOWEVER, Roz’s parenting that we saw in the original series, that included supplying Alice with classical music and enlisting Niles’ help to get her into a very good preschoo has resulted in Alli’s intelligence actually being comparable with that of Frasier and Niles’. However, Alli shows little interest in any of the pastimes that Niles and Frasier would be interested in and instead partakes mainly in ‘common man’ hobbies and interests, such as playing an acoustic/electric guitar, participating in social media, watching reality television and engaging in many other forms of mainstream pop culture. Alli’s mannerisms also mean that she would not be easily accepted by the circles that Niles and Frasier associate with. For example, in one theoretical episode, Niles joins an intellectual debating team and Alli is revealed to have a savant-like knowledge and understanding of many historical topics. However, her proclamation of: “YA TAKE A SWING AT THE QUEEN, YA BEST NOT MISS!” after delivering an excellent rebuttal at the end of the episode indicates that she is still far from being fully accepted by the snobbish society. So, that’s about it, I have either elements that I’ve left out, so if you have a “what do you think _______ is doing in the revival?” feel free to bother me with it. Other than that, enjoy my completely theoretical and fanatical take on what the Frasier revival should entail... Good day and good mental health... or whatever lol
2020.08.31 13:18 RustDykeLove and Loneliness: When Your Love Made Me Human (Bit of personal love story, bit of current venting)
I'm in a sort of gay melancholy mood and I think I just need to put my thoughts onto something, so here's a story I never feel like I can tell anyone. I'm sure it's gonna be pretty long so no hard feelings if you ain't got the time or attention for it, I just need to write this. Hopefully, I at least write it well enough to be compelling on its own. Probably some CW, generally heavy feels I don't think we realized that when we met we were still children. Twenty years of life seems like a long time, you feel like you've already grown all that you would, but it's funny how long just a few more years can be. I never imagined meeting someone on a dating site would turn into this, that one flirty message you decided to send me would change our lives so profoundly. You didn't care that I didn't have a home, that I was just staying on yet another couch of whoever would take me in for a spell, or that I had no life to really speak of. Despite everything I thought wrong with me you drove an hour just to meet me. I tried dressing up for you. I put on a skirt, tried my best with my makeup, whatever I could to look good enough. I'd never been on a date before and in the end, I feel like I looked like a scared, mousy stray of a girl playing at dress-up. Yet your brimming smile upon seeing me for the first time made my heart race. You told me how cute I looked and I'm certain my face turned red as I nervously stared at my ratty sneakers. The entire car ride I was quiet. I didn't know how to talk to people, I didn't have the confidence to say much, but I hope you knew I was captivated by you. You spoke so expressively and with such an uplifting joy in every word, every laugh, every look you gave me. It was wonderfully infectious. It's hard to describe the sensation of feeling the beginning of something you've never felt before and without knowing all that would come after. Though it feels so long ago I still remember that wonderful little date. You brought me to your home, or rather, your chosen home. Your relationship with your parents was complicated too, that was something we could share with each other already. You showed me your gluttonous goof of a guinea pig and excitedly showed me some of your favorite music videos since you shared a lot of music with me when we were still first speaking online. Those artists are still among my favorites, I'll have you know. Your taste in music was always fantastic and you opened me up to so many genres I had never even dipped my toes into before. We giggled over memes and vines like a couple of dumb idiots and discussed what sort of date things we might do for the rest of the day. Oh right, and then we were on each other so suddenly and aggressively. It's kinda funny looking back on it. I'd never even had sex before that. Well I did, but I've learned not to count what happened to me as a teenager. As far as I'm concerned, that was my first time. I think I remember cuddling afterward more vividly. Lying in a bed for the first time in years, and also in the arms of someone that I was already beginning to have feelings for. I'd never been held before for as far back as I can remember, not even by family. I think I could have died happily right there. Once we were finally up and dressed we decided to make dinner and watch a movie. I had recently found out I had a talent for cooking when the person I was staying with at the time gave me access to a kitchen and real food, so I thought I'd try to impress you with a meal. We had to drive around a bit to collect all the ingredients but it was worth it to see you enjoy the yakitori skewers I made, though I admit I was terrified I'd screw it up since I had only started learning to cook. We watched Howl's Moving Castle afterward since we both loved Studio Ghibli films and I had yet to see your favorite one. It got late and we both knew you weren't driving me all the way back to where I was staying. Waking up next to you in the morning was an exhilarating warmth as uplifting as the sun that shone through the window. You greeted my sleepy face with a kiss and we decided we were both lazy and wanted to stay in bed together for a while longer. You drove to pick me up and bring me back to spend time with you in your city as often as you could and it was the thing I looked forward to most every week. I met your friends and saw all your favorite places in town. We ate breakfast at your favorite restaurant, drove around taking turn sharing songs we thought we would both enjoy, and would end the day drinking on the porch with your friends or sneaking off to all sorts of places to enjoy one another like a couple of dumb teenagers. I guess in all honesty we were only past our teens by less than a year. Lord knows I didn't know what I was doing so I'm thankful you're the sort of person to say "no no no, this is how you do it". I remember that one night at one of your friend's house playing Mario kart together. I was reading hilariously bad fanfiction aloud and we were all dying of laughter; we could hardly breathe. You were embarrassed by the sort of laugh you made when you could catch your breath. I teased you for it but honestly, it's one of my favorite things in the world. It's hard for me to recall on the spot what anyone's laugh sounds like. Even with people in my day to day life right now, I have to think about it. But with yours, I can recall it in an instant, no matter how long it's been since I've heard it. Of course in the stereotypical lesbian fashion, we ended up moving in together a little over a month after we met. You were moving to another city for school and your dad was going to let you stay on a property he owned but never had the time to get up to code to sell. I still don't like your dad and I know you don't either. He's controlling but also oblivious in a terrible and uncomfortable way. He wanted you to share the house with his girlfriend who was closer to your age than his. Wanted to keep both the people he felt entitled to control in one place I guess. Of course, you hated the idea and needed a way out from that arrangement, and, well, I didn't have any place to live or any place to go other than back to a life of vagrancy. Just the two of us in a small little house in a neighborhood full of trees right by the university and downtown. Your dad was terrible at home improvement so the house was kinda janky. I mean the shower was in the bedroom for fuck's sake and I'll never understand why. But we had our windows full of sunshine, our little grassy front yard, and a swinging bench on the porch to sit on together. Oh, and a park to go to after we'd get drunk so we could swing on the swingset and also Chinese food and taco bell in easy driving distance. Two bean burritos and a side of nachos with queso were what you got every single time. I thought it was funny that you ate from there so often but never changed up your order, but you're the sort of person to know exactly what you like. So we'd eat takeout and watch pretty much every gay show we could find from Legend of Korra to Steven Universe to Orange is the New Black (back before it went where it did). I can't help but look fondly back on those days. I'd never been happy in my life before then. I'd never felt loved before you. After growing up with a mother who never showed me love, a father who hurt me out of frustration, years of homelessness without any friends and the scars left by all I had to do and all that was done to me just to continue an existence that I resented, that deep void of desolation that haunts me still-- to go from all of that to our happy and carefree days together, I don't think I could ever feel that comfort in the same way again. But such young and naive feelings rarely last. Your father didn't care for our relationship. He constantly asked you when you'd find a boy no matter how much you tried to tell him we were together. Half a year after we moved into that house he kicked us out without warning, saying he needed to start back up on his renovations. He invited you to move in with him and expected me to do the same with my own parents. But he never bothered to learn a single thing about me. He didn't know I had nowhere to go back to. But you did, and you did everything you could to find a place for us, but we had to concede so much to make it work with how little money and resources we had since your father cut you off from any help as long as you stayed with me. We moved into an awful house infested with bedbugs and far away from anything. We had to go in on the lease with your assistant manager, a gross and predatory man almost twice our age who saw an opportunity to take advantage of us both. We barely made enough money to make ends meet. I started working in an illegal brothel out of worry we'd lose what little we had left, until I almost got disappeared walking home one night. Luckily that didn't happen, and luckily I just ended up working multiple jobs every day after I found a way to get downtown reliably, even if the commute was long. But the strain of this life broke us down and soured our feelings. You felt trapped in our circumstances and I was wracked with guilt knowing that you sacrificed so much just to care for me. You lost your dad's financial support, you quit school to work at the department store full-time. This wasn't the life you wanted. I know you began to resent me for it. We were young and the comfort I could provide was flawed and sometimes disregardful. It was still a better life than I had before so I failed to see the extent of your own pain and misery. I think even now with how much I think I've improved as an adult, I doubt anything I could have done could have saved us in those circumstances. So we went our separate ways. Not because it made us happy but because we felt that we had to. I moved to another city and tried to start my life over as a single and independent adult. I don't think I had a very good start due to how poorly adjusted I still was as a person. You were the start of my learning what it means to be a person and what it meant to have relationships of any kind with others, and that had only been a year of learning after a lifetime of damage. I didn't know what it meant to be a good friend or partner and it took many more years to realize what it meant to be truly considerate and responsible in how my presence and actions affect others. No matter how much I feel I've improved, I think I'll always be learning as we all are, but at least you gave me that push to start. In all honesty, the deep feelings of hurt and loneliness I felt after we left each other's lives is what pushed me to consciously pursue being a better person despite how much I believed I would never be anything more than a burden of a broken person. I learned to make friends, I learned to socialize, I learned to be confident in myself, I learned to truly consider my own feelings and the feelings of others, to transition from letting my feelings of paralyzing self-loathing and worthlessness damage myself and the people around me to trying my best to truly do right by myself and others and to be my own person. I had confidence and so many friends who admired who I was in a way I never could have imagined. To this day I still find it so natural to make such human connections wherever I go. We eventually reconnected a year after we parted. We had mutual friends so I suppose it was inevitable. It was a slow process to feel comfortable around one another again, but we became friends again and we came to place so much trust in one another after we both saw our efforts to better ourselves and our lives. Getting back together never came up much. We had a mostly unspoken understanding that we weren't ready for that and that our lives were still moving different directions. We weren't ready to be in a relationship with anyone. Friendship was all we could have but you became my closest and most trusted friend even if it was often at a distance. We both tried dating others-- or more like we fell into relationships that never lasted long as we realized that we weren't ready our partners weren't right for us. Eventually, I moved out of the state entirely, enamored by the call of music and the punk scene of another city while you stayed put and went to school to become a mechanic. You went back into things with your first love from before we ever met after your own long process of mending things and becoming friends again. We were both living our own lives and as much as I missed your presence I was happy that we were. I was happy to see you grow and achieve the things you pursued. It's been over six years since we met. For so much of that time I genuinely felt better being on my own without a partner. I never felt ready to emotionally commit to someone else knowing what that really meant. Sometimes it was because I didn't feel in a good enough place to put my share of effort into a relationship, sometimes it was because there was no opportunities for it being a lesbian in a music social scene outside of lgbt circles. That's still where I am now, honestly. It's kinda funny with how many potential relationships I let go before I moved here because I wasn't in the right place mentally or emotionally. For the first time now I feel able to give my love to someone, able to put forth the sort of effort and consideration I've been working towards all this time and there's not really anyone in my life who even dates women other than the men in my life. Honestly the heteronormative... well, norm, it's been both frustrating and lonely. But I suppose it's more than just that. It's hard to open up to and place my trust in anyone the way I have to you during all these years. I feel trapped in a torrent of swirling thoughts as I try to grasp my feelings. When I try to imagine what a relationship with another woman would even look like I can only think of you. I dream of moments of intimacy and silliness, of joy and sadness, of waking up with someone in my arms, of all the things that make my heart stir with such warm sensation-- I can only picture you. Is it because you were the only person I ever genuinely had such deep feelings for? Is it because I can't get past how deep an imprint that period of change left on everything I am today? Or is it because I'm still in love with you? I'm afraid to answer that question myself knowing how painful it could be. Fuckin hell, this ended up being a whole ass chapter. If you actually read on this, geez, I really appreciate you. I hope you enjoyed my writing. All of this is directly from my heart but I wanted to make it into more of a writing piece than a stream of consciousness but I don't know how well that turned out with how tired I am with it now being morning and such.So this has all been on my mind for a while now. Since the start of this year I guess. It was difficult enough to sort through these feelings of mine as is but now the person this is about is moving up to where I live. The old love she reconnected with-- they were planning their immediate lives together and suddenly the old love announced her plans to move to a completely different state to continue schooling. She tends to be capricious like that but she didn't really give my friend much of a reason past "because I want to" after how much they had invested in being together and I know that's shattered my friend's heart. She's expressed interest in moving up to where I am before and now seems more set on doing it now that she doesn't have a reason to stay where she is. It's not to be with me, but because she wants to live somewhere other than the place she's been living for her entire life and she's enamored with the city I'm in and hopes to get a job as a mechanic here and get solid footing for her next step in life. I'm happy to help her move up here-- we've both become so self-reliant that I have no fear of us spiraling into codependence of any kind. But with my feelings for her already coming back to the surface of my mind and heart before this even became a plan-- it's just weird timing. I don't want to bank on us getting back together. I don't want to treat this like us getting back together. She's moving here for herself, not for me, and I wouldn't have it any other way. But... I hesitate to tell her how I feel or even openly acknowledge it myself. Even if I do have feelings for her I don't know what to do with them. I don't want to put her in any sort of position and I have no idea if she feels anything for me anymore, other than platonic friendship or if something between us could ever happen again, or if this is just me being hung-up on just wanting to share my life with someone again. But no matter how down wistful and heartsick these complicated feelings make me, I'll push forward because this is something only I can answer for myself. No matter what happens we'll move on and no matter in what form I want us to walk forward together. I already feel better after writing all of this. Things will be okay.
2020.08.28 01:37 Sanity0004My journey through The Challenge for the first time. (Part 6: Battle of the Seasons. Easily my longest post so far. Oof)
Probably a lot of errors and screw ups in this long winded rant/live watch. I'm sorry it's this long. I might need a damn break after this season. Boy, this took some wind out of my sails. This was rough. Battle of the seasons: Ok, I've heard I'm in for a string of really good seasons. Let's go! 1: A whole lot of people I don't recognize at all. (I'm totally fine with this.) Sarah looking different! I like it! Danny and Melinda on the same season? Why weren't they on Exes? I have limited exposure to Chet, but I like him! Danny looks so different in his confessionals. Knight being a dick right off the bat. Damn. Oh hell, this Pennsatucky looking chick. Actually like seeing Jonna and Jasmine again. I thought I recognized Trishelle and Alton, hey I watched that season! These fresh off the Real World rookies(Saint Thomas?) seem awkward. So far, I'm really liking the looks of this cast. A lot of newer people, the old school vets are low in numbers. I'm liking this a lot. "Best challenge house ever." Nah man, Fresh Meat 2's house was awesome. This Frank dude does NOT give off good vibes right off the bat. I'm all for the Sarah/Chet team up. Wes shenanigans off the bat. Oh shit, another team? No clue who it could be. Oh shit. I am soooo for this. Cara, Big Easy, Brandon and Camilla. I'm good with all four! Please Brandon, don't get screwed again! I swear to god I could already see some Wes shenanigans of getting Easy/Cara to put in Brandon/Camilla or some shit. Don't you do it! I feel like Austin is screwed with Melinda and Lacey. Melinda was never all that good in these challenges and Lacey doesn't look competitive at all. Calling Jonna and Jasmine weak? They were small but seemed strong and wirey as hell. Why is Cara Maria's name on her shirt like added on? lol Was she a last minute substitute or something? Everyone elses name is white letters on the shirt, but hers looks like it's a white printout strip thrown on the front of the shirt. Big Easy making a great first impression... Good job bud! God damn Eric. God Damn dude. Losing weight ain't shit for this show if you aren't also getting stronger and working on endurance. As a newer viewer not knowing a lot of these people, this is a terrible first comp for judging people and their performance for first impressions. A lot of times its just names and seasons and there's no real way to tell anyone apart most of the time. Why is this season treating just falling in the water so much worse? Just seems like a big escelation in the dramatization of danger. Only the first episode and it's had two falls in the water cut to commercial for drama. Exes alone had like 7 or 8 falls worse than any of these that were barely even noted on? lol Did this season suddenly have a big editing change? So far I hate the editing on this season. So much added dramitization and commercial cuts. This show never felt that dramatized before this. Yes there were dramatic cuts to commercials and everything, but saying who the power team was? Fresh Meat getting out of the car? This is feeling too much like modern overdramatization of reality tv. Ugh, Wes instantly on his shit. I like people owning their shit, but he's just a little too much sanctimonious about it. Shocked they had no time with the Fresh Meat team with reactions after the challenge. So much more focus on the rookies and newbies. First go off the bat gonna be all vets of the challenge. Nice. Wanting Austin gone, but then picking physical against Fresh Meat? These new peeps don't seem the brightest. Wes seems so slimmed down more than the last couple seasons. Wonder if he took the finals of Rivals to heart and been more focused on endurance and cardio? I am so confused by this Frank and Zach guy...like....sexually. There's some strong homoerotic vibes going on right now. I said it once, I'll say it again and again. Angry drunk is a damn requirement for this show. Jonna, did you not watch the Exes reunion?! Ok she's at least going to call the dude before it goes on and on and farther and farther. "My hearts pounding because I'm so excited you called." This is the ultimate of unconfortableness. I love the way this phone call is starting off haha I LOVE IT. Cara Maria what the shit? All of a sudden wanting to get cold feet? I still don't understand why Cara's shirt is different than everyone elses. Oh shit, well this is the best possible case for Big E, damn. Tackle the dude and keep moving. My faith in Austin just plummeted. Lacey has no chance and Wes has a less than normal chance. Well that was instant. I actually wish these guy and girl elim's worked indipendantly. Why should a team lose two, could just lose the girl or guy seperately. Have both compete, but I'd more like the chance of two teams potentially losing one each rather than one team losing 2. Eric just fucking tore through Wes like it was fucking nothing. I knew Eric had this, but shit that was nuts. Wes trying to be smart and go under. I think Eric got it. Wes swung his arm out too much, he lagged behind. Danny and Melinda just on their own battle of the exes now. 2: The combo of Knight and Jemmye makes that season of Real World seem like the absolute most off brand casting I've seen on MTV lmao New crew coming in with alliances. Good to see people aren't just coming in doing whatever vets or older cast say or say is normal. A giant pit of olive oil....ewe I look at that red line and wonder if someone is about get their back broken. Oh ok, I can see the appeal of this comp immediately. I like the schoolyard pick of this type of comp. Punches and drop kicks and neck grabs all in the first guy/guy face off? Damn these newbies came in heated. "Too much sensitivity in these newbie." Ok, I'm loving this post-win Camilla. Jonna, man, just instantly stepping out. Newbies coming in actually thinking about these games smartly. It's actually nice seeing this from people other than Johnny/Kenny/Evan and Wes. Man they just completely close out multiple teams from even trying. Damn. I'm glad the vets aren't just taking it sitting down and instantly strategizing themselves. Hahaha, I love that this became a thinking mans challenge throwing competition. The people playing around and goofing off is just all around great. That Big Easy has to sit here and talk to Cara and Camilla to actually play politics. Seriously guys, you two specifically have scated on being on the vets side so damn much to be talking shit about having to play politics. Brandon and Big Easy deserve better. I'm a fan of these rookies coming in and wanting too say fuck how this game has been played in the past. Yes, I don't really know them, and we don't have any vested interest in any of them, but this is how EVERY SINGLE PERSON should be coming in to this game. Fuck how it was played in the past, play it how you want to play it. The best possible outcome of this is multiple people coming in like this and having a good tug and pull for control throughout the season. It's how you get evolutions in strategy. Instant talk of love and connections bug the hell out of me. Jonna and her "I've never felt this way with a guy" come on chick, it's been a couple days. Oh god, Melinda getting in this fight is hilarious. It almost got the girls into a fight lmao I am not here for this New Orleans cast. Knight seems like a Vinny mixed with Johnny wannabe or something. Cara Maria seems extra whiny this season. I haven't seen her not whining yet. Brandon, I like you, but don't just come in and say "This is my fourth challenge, I'm tired of eliminations." Dude, did you come in expecting that vet shit too? Come on man. I have to assume that they have to give the producers who they want sent in before they get to see the comps right? I mean, why wouldn't you just wait til you see it and then decide? I don't like this Frank guy. He may be the head dude in charge with alliances and stuff, but he's not a great personality. He's not a fun evil, or fun bad guy to root for. He's just kind of annoying? Is Camilla going to be tall enough for this? On these type of competitions, why wouldn't you just sit back and wait until the last 30 seconds and then just send everything back? Glad to see Fresh Meat stick around. No real surprise to see Danny Melinda go out so fast. I feel like Austin being gone was like the Legacy members being gone. Yeah there is still vets left, but the rest left aren't really as well established. 3: Big Easy getting some female interest? Hell yeah! Damn Trishelle was gone for two episodes and comes blasting in with "Sarah is manipulative!" I can't take this Knight dude. I like this challenge a lot. Fresh Meat is definitely screwed, but I like it. Yup, there goes Easy. What the hell is with this dude? He was never a bad guy in these regular challenges. He was always decent but never the worst, never this damn bad. This competition really doesn't seem hard. It's more about concentration than anything else. Other than Eric the only thing people struggled on was not paying attention to placing the hook correctly. Does each team have their own van/bus? Seems extravigant... Damn Trishelle, you seem to be way more manipulative right now than Sarah is? You're the one running around telling everyone Sarah is manipulating Alton, but what you're doing is manipulating every team against one person. I understand the politics of wanting to stick with the alliance, but you're being crazy about it. Trishelle lmao "I'm a poker player, don't fuck with me." If I hear I'm a poker player one more damn time! Damn Camilla, chill chick. Brandon trying to talk you up and get you out of your shitty mood and you just start screaming? "Go fuck yourself!" "I will, I do it every single day!" I love it! hahaha Cut to them talking about the argument. Huuuuge pet peeve of mine, discussing how the argument progresses and takes place and not focusing at all on why the argument happened. "You said some things in there that hurt and I don't know where they come from." What about the fact that you blew up because the guy was trying to talk you up?! Thank you Chet! Trishelle, you're off your rocker. Why does Trishelle have this huge hate for Sarah? I feel like there is some context outside of the game or something? Why does she come in saying she's the most manipulative person in the game? What? Cara has a point. If something gets hard and you say you want to quit, who's to say you won't do the same another time? That being said Cara just seems so damn whiney this season. Trishelle pissed when Sarah volunteers herself lmao Chet and Sarah vs Brandon and Cara? In this type of challenge? I think Fresh Meat's about to lose... Spending so much time pulling the rope seems like a waste of time. You're never going to get that damn far you only have 10 minutes. I don't know who I want to stay more. I kind of want Cara gone, but I don't want Brandon gone. Definitely want to keep Sarah/Chet around. Not really surprised by the outcome. Oh fuck off Cara. "The joke is Camilla is stuck with Big Easy. You seemed to so obviously come in to this season expecting to scate by on the vets take care of vets game style and obviously never expected to go in to any elimination. I'd say Brandon got screwed again by a disfunctional team. Cara and Big easy is a tough saddle to bare. Get that girl big easy! 4: Devyn really? Dating guys collecting social security? really? This fucking Knight guy. God dammit. Trying to mentally breaking people? Really reafirming my Johnny take... The new orleans cast as a whole looks like they were side castmembers on MTV's Buckwild and they threw them on Real World after Gandee died and the show was cancelled. That's my headcannon. Eric talking shit, but obviously struggling holding the basket before anything is put in it... Damn dude, going hard on Brooklyn. Chet lol "Don' apologize, it doesn't mean shit." Damn Easy, fucking keep going. The basket is just filling up. Frank seems like a bitch. I am absolutely loving this "Alliance" breaking the fuck apart already. lmao They're all seeing a pecking order and little spites and shit's gonna blow. Love it. LOVE IT. Keep fighting! I have a feeling this season is about to get real damn heated. "Team meeting" this should go swell "We're in an alliance with you....but not really we want your team in." Sending in Fresh Meat again? Pussed out already? "Why is Brooklyn on the bottom every time?" Safe to say all these newbies got the JEK style of strategy. Clearly have a pecking order, but lets not acknowledge the pecking order. That's just messed up. Why would you think there's an pecking order? How dare you! Now you're just making yourself a target! Camilla, you won a season by getting to the end with alliances. What are you talking about? Vets so clearly came in expecting it to be a vets to the end automatic run. Be careful Camilla, that New Orleans cast look like they would actually start stabbing people. Especially the Pennsatucky looking chick. After a comp? Everyone with their own bus. After partying and drinking? Cram all these drunk fucks in a bus! Oh boy, you guys are underestimating Camilla if you think she would get her ass kicked. I'd put that money on Camilla. Everyone just fucking throwing 'bows and shit. Body check after body check. I love this alliance. How Nany kept her top on the entire time I have no idea. Knight telling Trishelle that he's the best manipulator in the house? Better watch out. Lose an alliance mate for simply suggesting that it isn't Sarah. Ughhh god, I can't take more of this Knight dude. He obviously took extensive notes on JEK's tips on playing the game. Nany you're bitching to Fresh Meat about not losing and not going into elimination? You dense bitch! IDK Devyn, you said you date people who collect social security. I feel like Easy should be a little uneasy on the dodginess. Not that it really matters, but the dodginess is weird. Fucking Knight coming to the rescue lmao Oh fuck off with this dumb suspense! 5: Big E, what the fuck. I understand it's hard, but you don't fucking quit. Fuck off Big E. You lost all my respect dude. It's like you get yelled at to keep trying and you get ptsd for Gauntlet or some shit and you just give up. Fuck off. Talking all kinds of shit about Camilla talking down to E, but fuck that she was telling him to try and that he has to think positively. She didn't talk shit till his dumb ass quit. I now understand why people look back to gauntlet 3 far worse. At the time I just saw it as the dude biting on more than he can chew, but he stuck with it until he literally couldn't. Now he's just a quitter. What in the hell. Nice bit of trivia for Sarah: she lives trivia. I think I hate Trishelle. I think it's a couple episodes in, enough to say that I really dislike Trishelle. I just got done watching Exes and I couldn't tell you what Island they go to at the end. "If looks could kill, I'd be so dead." TJ is killing me this episode. I love these trivia comps. It comes down to Chet in a spelling bee lol San Diego and Trishelle are basically my shit list. New Orleans would be on there too, but with them it's more of a disgust thing. This Pennsatucky chick just gave me Pennsatucky vibes before because of looks, but her flipping out and being a control freak continues to give me Pennsatucky vibes. What is New Orleans doing? lmao they're slowly tryin to walk the things to the wall lol Goodbye I guess? Wait...what? Why is there more than one round? There was only one round the first time... Only one 5 minute round the first time and 3 90 second rounds this time around? It makes sense, but why did they only now think of this or make this change? Good for Brooklyn. 6: Fucking Frank. This dude is a cuntnugget. This cast, or these newer players seem to take this game way more personal. Like the older school players seem to be able to openly realize it's a game and they're able to mostly put stuff away and have fun and chill when it isn't game related. This cast just seems to outright hate everything and will not put stuff aside for even a second. Frank is just so damn smug, but he somehow still comes off as insecure? Like he has to try to prove himself any time another guy even thinks of talking to him or gets attention. Why is Nany crying just entering the challenge? The Horse mask lol I think I'm on Team Brooklyn and Team Cancun at this point. And Teacm fuck San Diego and fuck Team Vegas. Saint Thomas barely even exists at this point. Ear pull seems like the weirdest pointless crapshoot of a "competition" Team Buckwild vs Vegas in a jousting competition lol I guess I'm hoping for Vegas as they might make an attempt at San Diego since they know they comtemplated going after them the previous episode. "I'm stronger!" "It's a fish!" "What does that have to do with this?" "It's a fifteen pound fish!" I love this argument. She dropped the fish haha I don't know if Laura deserves much respect really. Has she even had a single second of screen time before this? I actually feel like Knight of anyone would come in here to fuck shit up with this power team. Alton wanting his own team thrown in lmao He's opening talking about wanting to leave, but he's talking to the two girls who would literally have to go too. What an idiot. This season is going to start to annoy the hell out of me. Alton you dumb bitch. Yeah, just not let Alton go in. Frank, shut up. He wasn't allowed to do it, you idiot. That the other teams just sat there and thought the rest of the team would just let Alton lose for the team is hilarious. Now all of them are wanting to jump in on Alton. What is with these baby clowns? I feel like they shouldn't really care at this point because they didn't like Trey and Laura from Saint Thomas anyways. So even if they lose what does it matter to them? These guys are absolute bitches lol Seeing how exhausting the first rope dome comp went, I'm surprised these teams didn't focus more on alternating vertically over and over again. The pulling the rope was the hardest part and pulling it through the top would be the most exhausting. Basically go over the top, do a bottom not, go back over the top and repeat over and over again. It wouldn't even need to be complicated, just exhausting. It's the strategy comp for a reason. Frank and Zach just descheveled lol Not even wanting to look. Besides maybe Trey, I feel like this whole Saint Thomas cast is completely forgettable. I would be surprised to see any of them again. "What they're doing to your team is what I did to people in high school." Nice self own? Calling yourself a bully? lol 7: I spoke too soon, maybe they are able to just put everything aside for some fun. There's been so little of Jonna and Jasime this season. Kind of surprising. Glad to see some competitions that more resemble something close to a final challenge. "I don't know how I got this reputation for being good at puzzles." "Because you brag about it." love Chet. All this Cancun screen time makes me think they're for sure going in to the arena. They've been pretty absent. Sarah with the helpful tips! "Prove you're more than just high heels!" "I'm not!" this episode is hilarious so far. Now you just know to drop Devyn soon. Fuck Zach and Frank. I'm pro Sam. "I'm just encouraging you, STOP WHINING!" Hahahahaha Funniest episode of The Challenge to this point. How the hell do you get through the whole thing and just now realize there are extra pieces? Brooklyn took that! Nice. Cancun being a damn team. Frank and Zach are fucking disgusting. "Yoou don't like me telling you to speed up! FUCK YOU, YOU FUCKING FATASS!!!" Frank and Zach are just spoiled children turned bullies. I think this season has the most cast I actively hate. Robb trying not to call TJ a bitch because he thought he said they lost. lmao What the fuck was that? Frank and Zach act like twin brothers that will just say anything and do anything to back each other up. Frank "Zach trying to make me look like the bad guy." hahahahaha does this mother fucker not hear himself? At all? Was it you yelling "You selfish piece of shit!" or "You fat bitch!" Frank, Zach doesn't have to try... I love the infighting. I looooooooooooooove seeing Frank cry. I don't know if it's likely, but Frank leaving right now would blow this game wide the hell open. Come on. Seeing a note for someone else and reading it and laughing? Come on... It's not a prank, its malicious. Just a good reminder I hate Pennsatucky and the BuckWild team. Ha, suddenly Frank doesn't want to go in! Frank saying flat out that Sam won't be able to do it. These complete babies. Have I expressed how much I fucking love this episode yet? I'm giddy. I don't even think it will take Frank going home to break this game open. I think this team and alliance is fucked. "If we were so hellbent on our word, I'd be going in with Ashley, but we're not so I'm not going in." What?! What technicality bullshit are you trying finagle your dumb ass out of right now you scared little bitch? lol I hate Frank. "Don't be upset, I'm here for you." Frank fuuuuuuck off with your dumbass back and forth bullshit. "Sam, you suck and you're going to lose. But hey, I'm here for you!" lmao This is Sociopath level manipulation. Glad CJ could take this "Note prank" a lot more lighthearted than I'd be able to. I wasn't aware they could only be unsure on one of the people going in to the arena? I thought for sure on a previous one the guys were pretty set and the girls weren't and both were picked? Like they didn't even give a chance for the guys to step up after the girls went in the power team just picked both. Then I'm even more confused by them telling Brooklyn they have total control, but then only having them pick the guy. WHAT ARE THE RULES!!!! CJ being so close with San Diego bothers me. CJ himself seems cool, but I can't trust someone that would be close with these guys. Maybe this comp is a lot harder than it looks lol Sam pulling it out during this is great. I find it curious that they haven't shown Frank or Ashley cheering on their team at all... "Hey Frank! Fuck you!" I love to see it. Glad to see Pennsatucky and Shain Gandee be eliminated. "They haven't been able to win one challenge without me." Frank....THEY JUST FUCKING DID!!!!! You dumb bitch! 8: "I just need to get them to the end, so I can lead it." Oh the ego Frank. Trishelle reminding me I don't like her. Calling Frank a pawn and that he got played? What?! Lol, how? What are you even talking about? I love whatever this gameshow schtick is. "Guys, you can't make me look dumb." Jesus fucking christ Frank. This is how you start a challenge? "Hmm, now you're quiet." You toddler. Ok, I think Trishelle was feeding the fire on her pawn talk. She's sitting back loving the infighting. These numbers on this food is ridiculous. More than 10 baklava a peice in 4 minutes? That seems insane. I don't even know what this second thing is. Devyn and Sarah is just devouring these things. This one I actually think they'll get. The instant reaction to JD almost puking was great. "JD, don't you dare! You hold that shit down!" Chilis, now this number should be high as hell. I'm surprised how low they are. Sure they're hot but they're easy to eat. Put like 4 of those shits in your mouth at a time. Vegas, good job making the team lose by having to eat the food. lol Brooklyn, the power team again! "And testicles make semen. I don't want neither anywhere near my mouth." Zach, you liar. Glad to see San Diego going in again. I love love love every time I see Frank losing it. You mean egotistical bitch that instantly cracks under the tiniest bit of scrutiny from someone he can't just bully in to silence or isn't ganged up on. Sending in Cancun when you know it's going to be physical seems real dumb... CJ not knowing how damn feisty and strong Jasmine is in these elims. Sending Zach and Sam in again. Frank is straight bitches. At least Ashley wanted to go in. Wow, everyone shitting on Jonna. God damn people. Trishelle calling her trash lol Am I the only one who remembers how tenacious and strong Jasmine was in these kind of elims? This just seems like the smarter choice. Eh, she still lost. Darn. Yessssssss, Zach getting his ass trounced. Annnnnd he won. Damn. Don't you fucking go back to being buddy buddy with Frank. Fuck that noise. 9: Is this a longer season? I feel like we're not preparing for the final at this point? Ugh, San Diego doing team motivation bullshit is just gross. Stop it. You disgust me. It's weird seeing TJ without a hat so much this season. I'm really liking the variety of challenges this season. Yeah, no mention of the final. Must have more episodes to go than I thought.(I'm not looking out of stubbornness) Robb, literally not being able to get the first bouie. I kind of have sympathy for Trishelle panicking with salt water. I have the same issue. It's a weird sensitivity to salt water. I am the biggest fan of water and swimming, have never had issues in my life, but any time I get in to saltwater for the first time in a while, my mind goes through this panic the first time I taste saltwater every single time. It's like you can't breathe and you can't help it. Body just goes in instant panic and can't control it. As much as I dislike Trishelle, I completely get this specific issue. It's a completely mental side effect that you really can't help at all. There's literally nothing you can do about it but wait it out. Eventually your mind just adjusts to it. Alton, don't talk shit. You literally threw your team in the arena and wanted to quit while taking out a team mate like two weeks ago. "I am a southern man, and you know I don't talk to women like that." lol Dustin Zach shut up. "We wanted to send ourselves because we feel pretty comfortable." I feel like these people are not thinking about the comp types at all when they're making their choices. Vegas is all tall and you want them out so you throw them in endurance? Frank isn't even being talked to, but he HAS to jump in with "Don't you point your finger at me." as she waives her hand meaning everyone lol Frank you whiny bitch that just wants an excuse to scream at people. Chaos ensues because Frank had to make it two on one and had to jump in to an argument that he knew he had numbers on. Has Frank had any altercation where he is the only person involved? Other than with his own friends? Talks a lot of shit, but I haven't seen him say shit unless he's got people around him. I'm not sure I even know who this Derrick guy is... The Challenge and it's tradition of angry drunk casting. "Nany, I was drunk and emotional, give me a break." Dude you got yourself fucking in this argument when you had numbers. Wait....Dustin did gay porn? lol That's actually surprising. You can tell Frank is the most insecure baby bully. You jump in to an argument and as soon as you can't just railroad the argument you just go as personal and as dirty as possible. Frank is a punk bitch. Plain and simple. If I was in Dustin's position, I'd punch Frank and it'd be worth it. "Those are just porn muscles." God I fucking hate this dude. I really want to know how many cast members actually get in fights outside of the house. Afraid of Alton wanting to go home all over again. "It's not fair people underestimating me." Dude, you've talked about going home multiple times! Trishelle just gonna let the other team decide lol That's not the way to come out ahead in this fight. You suck just as much. Wow Trishelle....wow. Good on you Nany, dumb, but good on you. Trishelle instantly calling anyone that disagrees her a psycho. Alton possibly not trying? Say it ain't so! It more looks like Nany isn't trying on this third round. Every time it shows her it looks like she's ignoring ones that go past her and basically walking to the balls. Trishelle, you trash. Do we really need to see Frank's reaction to the results? Really? Dustin: "Remember this." Trishelle is garbage, but that doesn't stop you from competing dude. 10: "It's hard to get him to see the big picture. He's very child like." Bitch you lost a challenge, refused to go in because you were afraid of losing, then basically forced your teammate to go in instead and they went home. I know it's not all your fault, but you definitely caused this. "I can already feel this money in my pocket."-Chet, this is never a good sign. Zach lol "I'm pissed now. I'm going too take it out on Chet and JD, I don't care." Alright Zach and Frank, time to lock penises and become one. Brooklyn guys falling. Ya'll suck. Wow, guys being DQ'd what in the hell guys? Sarah and Devyn straight look pissed. lol Chet not exactly backing JD up when he says "Believe me, I was in the tube with him." but then backing him up lol It'd be dumb to NOT put in Brooklyn at this point. This cast seems like everything is so personal. Wanting to put in Marie for pushing Derek and Sam being in the way. Not wanting Cancun in solely because of Jonna. Marie, I'm not speaking is not the way to approach this. Calling her a brat because you just don't want to send in your girl lol These people act like it was some vicious and malicious act to push Sam. She pushed Derek. Sam was just behind him and got Derek pushed in to her. It's a dumb thing to get mad about. Just seems like a dumb idea throwing Saint Thomas in. If the final isn't next you have an advantage by having a full team in these team comps. Geesh, this feels like the first time they've gone out all season. "When did you grow a dick anyways?" Frank, taking absolutely zero seconds to go personal lol You're only just now seeing Franks true colors? Nah, you just weren't on the receiving end of it. You just chose to be fine with it before. "Well I'll kill your man, how about that?" "OH yeah?! I'll kill your girl, how about that?" What and the fuck am I watching? lol Wait, are Robb and Marie actually dating or something? I always saw them kiss, but it seemed like a weird brothesister kiss. I always thought it was weird and awkward. Marie: "Your whole team knows you're a weirdo." She says to the team who all openly accepts being the outcasts and weirdos lmao "You're just riding Jonna's coattails." That may be the best dig I've heard the entire season. Angry drunks, angry drunks everywhere. "Trishelle is like the newly divorced mom that's trying to party with her kids." Damn this episode is getting in some good digs. It took you getting close to them too realize they're similar? It's not focusing on Vegas much and just looking in the background it looks like Dustin is staying in the water constantly. I think Trishelle is colorblind or something lol How she's having this much trouble is kind of astounding. Dustin seems to be killing it for her to not be doing better. No Trishelle, Dustin is making it look good. You are trash and are completely blowing it. Good god, I'd have been so pissed if I was Dustin and Trishelle lost that for you. She was having to literally check every single one of the cards. Good god. "The house is probably happy. Don't have to deal with two drunk asses t-rex'ing around the house." What? Marie your only contribution to the show was the 3 times you got mad. Ok, so one more challenge then final. So 2 episodes to go? Maybe 3? Ok, I was against the location changes lately, but I'm liking them going to afrika. That could be a really interesting intense final. 11: "We're in Africa, we came here to poach!" oof That atv looks tiny with the angle it's showing it. "You don't even have to get your hair wet!" I like Brooklyn I feel like Dustin is puking after every challenge. Sarah going slow, but nice to see her whole team rally around her afterward. Zach looks like he literally can't swim. Vegas to the finale is kind of disappointing. Honestly as much as I hate it you probably throw in Brooklyn. You either want a team out or you possibly weaken Brooklyn in some way. Who won a previous challenge that was very similar to a final. San Diego is a fine choice. You want to weaken them to possibly weaken them too. Frank can not STAND being talked aboout. I fucking love it. Oh my god...you talked about how he didn't fly far in the challenge that he had no control over? Time to get personal! Why did Cancun stop like they were done? I don't know if it's editing or if they gassed out but it looked like Cancun got near the end and just stood there barely doing anything. "I don't know if anyone can finish this final." But I will fucking ridicule you to no end if you fucking quit!!!!! So if you can't finish just fucking die!!!!! signed with love, TJ Thermal underwear? Guess a two night final. Ugh "Could there be very little running involved?" Devyn, have you seen this show? Frank Praying just pisses me off more. Fuck off dude. Why is it trying to make this skydive prep sound creepy? It's got like high tone horror movie music over it. 12 Jumping off a plane and then just starting to jog like normal would feel so anticlimactic lol not sure why but just seems like a weird shift. Frank and Zach are instantly bitching. FUCK "You're not gonna talk to me? You're not going to talk to your teammate?" Sure, put the onus on Sam, Frank. It definitely has nothing to do with you verbally abusing her the entire time and just coming back to yell at her more... "I'd say I'm the smartest person here." Stay humble Frank. "I'd hate to hand over 250k to a bunch of bullies." I always knew I liked Sarah! There was just that one bad season of her working with Kenny. Trishelle just spent time in a helicopter and somehow looks more tired now. Oh my god. These people are terrible. Sam falls and they scream "You did that on your own!" and pick her up and tell her she's acting like a 3 year old. I can't tell you how much I hate these fucking people. I'd rather have 3 Wes's screaming "You dumb bitch" for hours than how these dumb fucks act. Chet getting in on the shit talking of his own team... I swear if Frank and Zach win this I will riot. If Frank and Zach get lost in a dune slide or something I won't be sad. I promise, I won't bat an eye. This fucking shit ass team. They literally can't stop bitching even when she's laying down. "I'm going to strangle her!" At least Brooklyn isn't fucking screaming and yelling at Devyn like she's a crying child on the ground. Jesus. Sarah killing it at checkpoints. Just perpetual sad face. I regret everything. Trash finale. I'm just going to imagine the season is 11 episodes and the footage for 12 got lost. My head cannon is they wait until San Diego gets to the finish and TJ says they're DQ'd for abuse and incessant berating of a teammate. Ugh, do I even want to watch the Reunion? Unless someone literally beats the shit out of Frank on stage I don't think I'll be happy. Reunion: I want to know how much Frank bitched for San Diego being in the back. Why the fuck are the reunions mostly clip shows?! Frank looking stunned that she's still mad. Money should make up for it right? Frank is trying soo hard to act cheerful and happy. Fuck off dude. "It wasn't hard for me, I got to walk thanks to a teammate." Fuck off. Fuck off. Fuck the fuck off. Frank trying to come off like he is mad at what happened is going to send me over the edge. I am actually advocating for full on assault at this point. Sam/Frank for Rivals 2? We just not going to address Frank at all on this reunion? Fucking hell? Sure let's continue to bag on Sam. Sure lets fucking do that. "Guys she's really not the victim here." JESUS CHIST It was verbal abuse. You're disgusting to even pretend it was anything different. Wow the reunion is making it fucking worse. Lets just get the whole cast to rag on Sam. Jesus. And we're just not going to talk about Frank at all other than the push? And don't even pretend you were pushing everyone up a hill in that clip. That push wasn't on a damn hill and the other two were well ahead. There was a damn shot that showed above it at the same time. The team of Brooklyn is getting more shit on than Frank and Zach. This is gross. I stopped watching. I don't even like a majority of these people and don't care. I think I need a break after this season. I don't even know what to put for a final thoughts type of thing. Just a big giant fucking OOF. This was gross.
2020.08.26 19:40 welcometosouthappWelcome to South App #5: "I'm a Beleaver"
Wednesday, August 26th, 2020 After a ten-day cheese binge, Gigi had gained ten pounds. That didn’t stop Frank, the Italian Stallion, from picking her up and pinning her to the dorm room wall. They began making out in their underwear for the first time. “Um...do you have a condom?” Gigi whispered as Frank lifted her up. “But soft, my dear! Why, I carry the finest lambskins in the land. Made from the intestines of the most supple virgin sheep.” Frank squeezed her thighs while sliding his tongue down her throat. But after holding her up for so long, his arms began to tremble. “Maybe we can take it on the bed?” Gigi laughed nervously. “I guess I’m well on the way to the Freshman 15. Woo-hoo!” Frank tossed the 130-pound Gigi onto the beanbag chair. He straddled her, reaching behind her back to unclasp her bra. “On second thought, maybe not,” Gigi mouthed, gently pushing his hands away. “But ask you did - did you not?” “I...I like you, Frank,” Gigi admitted. “But on a sweaty bean bag chair in a dorm room? It’s...not what I have in mind for my first time!” “Woe is me! Alas, my sexual and culinary advances remain unrequited.” Sure enough, Frank was supposed to have cooked dinner for Gigi that previous Friday. But once she’d found out lasagna was on the menu, Gigi had promptly faked the flu. Following her secret cheese dinner with Winston, she had secretly sampled nearly every type of cheese in Buncombe County. And cottage cheese, an ingredient in Frank’s lasagna, was her least favorite. Hard pass. Gigi slipped into her tight blue jeans and white Beavers hoodie. “Um...looks like I shall depart for class!” “Next time, shall I conduct myself differently?” Gigi smiled meekly. “Come as you are, Frank. We’ll try sex again in three months!” On the 300 Hall, a naked Claire stood handcuffed to the top bunk from behind. She bit her shoulder to muffle her moan as a shiver rattled her body. An also-naked Winston stood up from his knees. “Mmm...let’s, like, totally do it already!” Claire panted, sweat dripping down her bangs. It would be Winston’s and Claire’s first time. And he had planned ahead with the help of a little blue pill. “Ah, right,” he grunted. “I reckon I’ll go get a Jimmy hat.” Winston opened his desk drawer, reminded that his prized fake ID collection was missing. Whoever took it, your ass is grass, Winston thought. Then, while Claire wasn’t looking, he popped a Cialis in his mouth - his second pill in an hour. For good measure, he cracked open a can of Red Bull and chugged. “Wow,” Claire cooed, looking down at it. “You must be, like, getting ready for a bonafide marathon with me!” “Your satisfaction is 100% guaranteed or your money back, ma’am.” But as soon as Winston opened Claire’s legs, it happened. A metric fuck-ton of caffeine and testosterone coursed through his veins. His pulse sank from one head to another. Target locked: Claire. She gasped in surprise. And Winston’s fragile ego, along with something else, deflated. “Hashtag OMG,” Claire whispered, more embarrassed than Winston. “It’s, like, totally okay! It looks like we, like, had a little too much foreplay.” Winston, dead-eyed and stone-faced, put on an old pair of Wrangler jeans and a red flannel. “I...need to give a presentation for class.” “Oh! Like, good luck! Do you think you can, like, get me a towel?” Winston grabbed his damp, musky shaving towel and tossed it to Claire. “Wait!” Claire called out as Winston stepped into the hallway. “You forget the-” The door slammed. “-Handcuff key.” Alone in Winston’s room, she stared at the key on his desk. “Hey, Siri!” she called out to her iPhone. “Call the Italian Stallion on speaker.” Frank answered. “Ah, Claire: the woman with fire in thy loins. Shan’t you be in class at this time?” “You’re, like, too silly! Mornings are for sobering up, not classing. Anywho, Winston I and totally ended our morning...prematurely.” “Methinks you and Winston hath made more progress than Gigi and yours truly.” “Aw, you poor thing!” Claire teased, sticking out her lower lip. “Tell you what. My hands are, like, tied right now. Hashtag literally! Wanna come up to Winston’s room and take advantage of me?” *** At 8 AM Econ class, Jacky, Tai, Sarah, and Evelyn sat in the back of the massive lecture hall. While the professor rambled on about exponential growth, Jacky flipped through the binder of fake IDs. “On the real, we’re not selling fake IDs,” Jacky declared, pulling out an one that favored the Latina teaching assistant. “We’re selling freedom, the way God always intended it.” “Well put, Cali,” said Sarah. “Looks like you’ve dethroned Frank as the poet in our posse.” “Whoa, let’s not get crazy,” Tai chuckled. “Unlike us peasants, Francisco is a Sicilian king.” “If you love him so much, why don’t you just marry him, broseph,” Jacky snapped. Tai looked down like a shameful dog. Jacky held his grey-eyed stare like an Olympian. Finally, he burst out into laughter. “I’m just dogging you, scaredy-cat! Gotta keep you on your toes or this college junk will get stale.” “College fucking sucks,” Evelyn chimed in, cranking the volume on her Mickey Avalon song. “It’s all a scam.” The charismatic Jacky swiped an ID of a girl who looked like a preppy version of Evelyn. “Sounds like you need a new perspective, dudette. In college, you can be anybody you want to be. On the real, that’s why in the past 10 days, I’ve sold 25 IDs alone.” Tai raised his eyebrows. “Twenty-fucking five? Not too shabby.” “Oh, did I say 25? I meant that I sold 25 IDs to people in this room alone. Heck, the real total is somewhere around...200.” Their jaws were on the floor. Jacky pulled out a roll of 100-dollar bills from his cargo shorts. He fanned the cash, then divvied a few bills to each of them. “That’s 500 apiece each,” Jacky declared. “Just as a show of good faith that this operation won’t be a waste of our time.” “Holy shit,” Sarah whispered, stuffing the money in her purse. “That’s almost enough goddamn cash for...half a textbook!” “True that, but God’s last name is not damn,” Jacky hissed. “Wait, how much money have you made so far?” Tai asked, reaching down and holding Jacky’s hand. “Plenty more,” Jacky whispered, inviting them to get close. “Look at all of God’s lost sheep in this room. Investing all this time and money to make this kind of money appear. Heck, we can do it much faster, dude and dudettes. We can take our operation straight to Beleavers.” Jacky was referring to the Methodist youth group that met in the Chadwick Learning Center each Wednesday. Students of all faiths, colors, creeds, and M.O.’s were welcome - if only for the campus-renowned free popcorn. “Ugh, organized religion is a farce,” Evelyn groaned, putting her headphones back in. “Then you should have no problem taking their money,” Sarah said, yanking her earbud out. “Exactamundo,” Jacky declared as the professor dismissed class. “Just picture all those students walking around with Mommy and Daddy’s tithe money. All we need to do is earn their business. Let’s get there early tonight and set up a vendor table. Sarah, Evelyn: we need a front. What can you sell?” “I can sell my collection of human bones from my graveyard raids,” Evelyn offered casually. They all stared at Evelyn in silence. “H-how about we make homemade bath bombs instead?” Sarah suggested casually. “Perfect,” Jacky declared. “Tai and I will go to the dorm kitchen and whip up some baked goods. They’ll come for the snacks and leave with new identities.” “Gravy,” Sarah said, flashing a peace sign. “Now, Evelyn and I have a rematch to settle.” “Mario Kart?” Tai asked. “Nah, grappling on the quad.” Sarah snatched Evelyn in a headlock and tickled her stomach. Evelyn burst out laughing, then tapped out. The two friends left the lecture hall. “On the real, your hippie friend has a lot of nerve leading her on like that,” Jacky said, packing up his books. “Eh, Sarah’s made it clear that she doesn’t like girls. Or...anybody for that matter.” “Well, from one gay to another: Sarah’s full of horse crap.” “Dude, they’re friends! And Evelyn’s not holding out for anything more.” Jacky cocked his head as the last few students left the lecture hall. “What about us, Tai? Are we just friends?” Tai leaned in to kiss him. Jacky kissed back harder, slipping his hand beneath Tai’s nylon shorts. Tai tossed his head back, pacing his breaths. “Try to hold out as long as you can,” Jacky whispered, nibbling his neck. “I don’t want this to end…prematurely.” “Hold out, huh?” Tai moaned between breaths. “Fuck...guess I gotta...uh, think about Evelyn the demon or something. That’s a turnoff...uh, am I right?” “Seriously?” Jacky mumbled. “I’m trying to please you, and you’re gonna talk about another woman? Just stop talking.” My boyfriend’s a hard nut to crack, Tai thought. Yes, it was true that Jacky had been a cocky, jealous, holier-than-thou douche during the whole class. He’s shallow. But God, his hand feels so good. So Tai let Jacky California finish. And afterward, Tai felt like the shallow one. For letting somebody kiss, caress, and fondle him when he knew for damn sure that they had nothing in common. *** “And in conclusion,” said a female brunette. “That’s why multicultural cuisine is integral to improving the health of obese Americans in our nation. Thank you!” “Delightful,” exclaimed Dr. Cartwright: Winston’s female Public Speaking professor. The student thanked her, then returned to her desk in the small Learning Center classroom. Today’s topic: Describe how multiculturalism has changed your life. “Next up: Winston Beavers,” Dr. Cartwright announced. “Ah, quite a fitting last name, if I do say so myself.” “Much obliged, ma’am.” Winston tipped his cowboy hat. “No one liked my last name until I became a student at South App.” He walked to the front of the classroom carrying two large foam boards. “Oh! Somebody chose to use props, I see.” “I was always a visual learner myself.” Winston set the foam boards up on tripods. “Ever since I was a little shit...um, I mean child, I always had a knack for pictures instead of words. I reckon ain’t much changed since then.” “That’s very...insightful, Winston. Please begin whenever you’re ready.” Two huge images were printed on the foam boards. One was a high-res photo of a revolver. The other was a simple stock photo of a 3-ring binder. “Ladies and gents, when I enrolled last month, two precious items were stolen from me.” Winston pulled out a cigarette and pointed at each of the photos. “Exhibit A: my Colt Single Action Army revolver, gifted to me by my daddy. And Exhibit B: a top-secret binder, gifted to me by the fine folks from Beta Delta Epsilon.” “Who’s got big dicks? We’ve got big dicks!” chanted a few BDE pledges in the back of the class. “Don’t you forget it. Uh, anyway, I say all this to say: multiculturalism has impacted my life because it was statistically somebody of a certain race who stole these items from me.” “Mister Beavers, I must stop you as this is highly inappropriate!” blurted out the professor’s teaching assistant. “Let...let him continue,” Dr. Cartwright muttered, swallowing the lump in her throat. “Mister Beavers, I do presume you have...dare I say, a valuable theme in your speech?” “I humbly assure you, I do,” replied Winston tipping his cowboy hat. “I reckon you’re gonna wanna listen to what I’m fixin’ to say.” *** Down at the other end of the Student Center, Gigi donned goggles and rubber gloves while she weighed silver nitrate powder on a scale. “Everybody make sure that your scale is switched to grams!” cautioned Dr. Spivey: a wild white-haired mad scientist. “And before anybody asks: no, I will not help you cook meth in an RV! I will, however, give you a list of Asheville’s finest marijuana dealers...for a price.” Gigi added the powder to a volumetric flask. Then, she unzipped her bookbag and grabbed a bottle of distilled water. She slowly poured the water into the flask, swirling the mixture around. “Smart, smart, smart!” Dr. Spivey praised Gigi. “Why, I see somebody brought their own water. Now, I think I know why. But please humor me.” “Gladly!” Gigi obliged, swirling the flask until the silver nitrate dissolved completely. “Well, Professor, I opted to access my personal inventory in hopes of bypassing a lengthy dihydrogen monoxide queue! Translation: look at that line!” Sure enough, a long line of students stood with flasks in hand, waiting to use the tap of distilled water. Dr. Spivey flipped through his attendance roster. “Ah, you’re my pre-dental student: Ji-hye.” He pronounced it incorrectly as Gee-Hi. “Oh, it’s actually pronounced Gee-Hey. But my real name’s caused so much...um, confusion that most people call me Gigi now.” “I see. That’s quite unfortunate. Having to change your name all because of someone else.” Before Gigi could respond, a frat boy called out to the professor. “Hey, Walter White! I’ll pay ya a hundred bucks for a list of all your dealers. Come on, bubba, that’s like half your salary!” Dr. Spivey sighed and feigned annoyance. “Ah, these kids and their shrewd business exchanges. Guess I better entertain their shenanigans. Keep up the diligence, Ji-hye.” That time, he pronounced it correctly. After Dr. Spivey left, a nerdy hipster girl tapped Gigi’s shoulder. “Hey, check this out.” The girl raised her cardigan sleeve to reveal a dark silver nitrate tattoo. Fuck Landsharks. It was the South App Beavers’ rival mascot. “I...fully approve this message!” “Here, try one on you before the professor gets back.” The girl handed Gigi a paintbrush. “Neat!” Gigi replied as if accepting party pills for the first time. “But what to write?” She stared at her class schedule, where her name was also listed as “Ji-hye Moon.” Maybe...I should get used to using my real name again. Gigi pulled up her hoodie sleeve and dipped the brush into the silver nitrate solution. Just then, the professor summoned everybody back to their desks for discussion. “Ji-hye, Ji-hye, Ji-hye,” she repeated, quickly painting a tattoo on the inside of her left hand. Gigi rushed back to her desk. Dr. Spivey laughed at the class, his white hair sprawling in all directions. “Fools! I saw what you did. Now, let this be a lesson in commitment. Because silver nitrate tattoos take a week to fade. Now...who wants to show me theirs? Or shall I start calling names?” Goosebumps rose on the back of Gigi’s neck. Not because her tattoo was semi-permanent, but because she was surely about to be the center of attention. But after a moment of tension, the professor simply dismissed class. Gigi bolted out the door. “So long, Ji-hye!” his voice echoed down the hall. Shit, did he see my tattoo? Gigi picked up the pace, bumping into students who filed out of the Learning Center classrooms. Around the corner, she heard the grinding of coffee beans and frothing of whole milk. She would soon reach safety at Doppio Coffee Shop... “Whaaa-oomph!” Gigi gasped, slipping on a banana peel. She landed flat on her back, sending her notebook and loose papers flying. “Whoa, are you okay?” asked a short Indian guy as he rushed to Gigi’s aid. He helped her to her feet. “Yo, did you get that on video?” he asked another Indian, who ran up with a video camera. “Hey, Miss, it was just a social experiment! See, we’re from the South App Social Club. Hey, are you listening? It was just a prank, bro!” A mentally-drained Gigi kneeled down to collect her supplies. It was only when Gigi reached down to collect her papers that she read the tattoo on her hand. And it did not read Ji-hye... “WINSTON?!” her voice cracked. “Jesus fuckin’ Christ,” mumbled a young cowboy, hunched over a large caramel frappuccino. “Are ya that surprised to find me here?” Winston was sitting at Doppio Coffee Shop. Gigi hurriedly pulled down her hoodie sleeves past her fingertips. She balled the draping sleeves over her fists, concealing the palms of her hands. Then, she walked over to Winston as if she didn’t look like a complete- “You look like a complete dork!” Winston chuckled. “Oh! I was...uh, cold,” Gigi lied. She held up her balled-up fists like a panda bear. “See, I made my own gloves!” Winston snatched her right wrist, then placed it palm-down on the counter. He reached into his pocket for a dull, rusty Swiss Army Knife. “So what we wanna do is make a quick little incision where the thumb is right here.” Winston cut a small hole in the sleeve. Carefully, he guided her thumb through the hole to create a mitten of sorts for her small hand. “Now, let’s do your left hand.” Gigi’s heart skipped a beat as he grabbed her tattooed left hand and lay her palm on the table. Don’t look at my tattoo, don’t look at it, don’t look at it! “Ugh, damn blade’s straight-up fucked,” Winston scoffed. “Must’ve been that buck I skinned.” “Eek! That’s so gross! Have you at least washed it?” Don’t look at it, don’t look at it, don’t look at it! Winston ignored her question. “Here, let me see your palm so I can-” For the love of all that is sacred and holy, don’t look at it, don’t look at it, DON’T LOOK AT IT! “I have to poop!” Gigi blurted out. Winstons let go of Gigi’s hand. He and everybody else stared in disbelief. Of course, she was lying. It’s not even what she meant to say. But Gigi took that baton and ran a country mile. “Um...it appears that most sharp cheeses give me constipation. But ever since I ate all those mozzarella sticks, I have major runs!” Gigi stood up, crossed her arms, and bowed. Then, she skittered off to the restroom - her secret safe in her left hand. A preppy guy and girl walked up behind the dumbfounded Winston. “Yo, country boy needs to teach his lady friend some manners, am I right?” The guy looked around, trying to rally the cafe customers for support. “That’s one thing I hate about this liberal town. What a fuckin’ dyke.” A storm brewed in Winston’s head. But he kept it bottled up inside. He chuckled instead, placing a hand on the guy’s shoulder. A pause. Suddenly, Winston yanked him into a headlock, holding the pocket knife to his crotch. His girlfriend shrieked like a mouse, while the young man raised his trembling hands. “Oh fuck, oh fuck, oh fuck!” the guy yelled.“T-take it easy, man! I was just-” “Now listen here, partner.” Winston applied pressure with his blade. “I’ve had my share of good days. Matter fact, they’ve been a dime a dozen. But I reckon I’ve had my share of bad days too. And this right here is one of them bad days.” Winston motioned at the paper next to his drink. “See that-there paper over there? That’s the speech I just gave in front of a crowd of SJWs. And you wanna know what the teacher gave me? D-fuckin’-minus.” “I’m...s-s-sorry,” the preppy guy whimpered. “Yeah, me too,” Winston grumbled, using his knife to flick off the button on the guy’s board shorts. “Somebody, do something!” the guy’s air-headed girlfriend cried. And on cue, a thin brown liquid ran down the preppy guy’s legs. It seeped into his white Champion socks and stained his off-brand boat shoes. The putrid smell hit the gasping, coughing patrons. Satisfied, Winston shoved the guy into his girlfriend’s arms. “I reckon you best wash up, partner.” Whispers and murmurs in the crowd while the preppy boy limped toward the men’s bathroom. “Hol’ up. I reckon you best make your way to the female bathroom. Matter fact, all bathrooms are gender-neutral around these parts. And while you’re in there, you can apologize to that so-called dyke from earlier. Tell her Winston Motherfucking Beavers sent you.” With anguish and defeat in his eyes, the lady entered the female bathroom. Satisfied, Winston gathered his things and decided that it was time to get the fuck out of there. But when he turned around to leave, a thunderous applause erupted behind him like an action movie explosion. Winston smiled mischievously. For the first time since he enrolled, he finally belonged. Suddenly, Winston slipped on the banana feel and landed square on his elbow. “Oh, shit!” exclaimed the Indian student, running to his side. “Are you okay, man?” *** Frank shivered on top of Claire as she dug her nails into his back. He lay there for a moment, his breath ragged. Then, he rolled off, breathing heavily on Winston’s top bunk. He slipped off the latex condom and tossed it into an empty cheese ball can on Winston’s bunk. “Alas, thou hadst sucketh the chi from my body and-” “Remember, like, no talking!” Claire reminded him condescendingly. She pulled the covers over her breasts, opened Instagram, and took a duck-face selfie. “Ah, perhaps you didn’t get a chance to c-” “Like, no.” Claire casually added a rabbit-ear filter and snapped a pic. “But that’s, like, totally okay...I guess.” Frank transformed from Shakespeare to Sherlock, scanning Winston’s filthy bachelor bedspread for something. Anything. There were cigarette butts, saltine crumbs, half a stick of butter, Fun Dip packages with only the dip missing, a whole uneaten chicken wing, piss in a Sprite bottle, a Happy Meal box with a dead rat inside, three leaking D Batteries, and Marie Kondo’s The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up. Finally, Frank grabbed a nearly-empty can of whipped cream. He yanked the covers off the naked Claire and sprayed a line from her collarbone to navel. Now, he had Claire’s full, undivided attention. She slowly looked down at the runny mess that pooled into her belly button. Then, she gave him the hungriest bedroom eyes Frank had ever seen. “If you’re, like, going to play with your food, then you better totally clean up after yourself.” Frank and Claire proceeded to do unthinkable things in that bed. And Winston’s top bunk held on by faith and faith alone. Finally, they collapsed next to one another. Two sweaty messes bathing in afterglow. Afterward, they snuck into the men’s shower where they agreed on two things. One: they were going to burn that mattress out of respect for Winston. And two: they were going to have sex at Beleavers that night. *** “Look here, you little bitch!” Evelyn grabbed the young, black cheerleader’s collar and pulled her across the table, showing her fangs. “W-whoa!” the cheerleader stammered. “Chill out! I’m...sorry.” “Sorry about what?” The girl panned from Evelyn to Sarah, Tai, and Jacky. “I’m...uh, sorry for asking you if you were selling tickets to a Marilyn Manson concert.” “Apology accepted!” Sarah cheered on Evelyn’s behalf. She pointed at the assorted bath bombs for sale in the Learning Center Ballroom. “Everything you see here is between 10 and 15. If you have a sweet tooth, the fine gents to my right are selling yummy cookies and banana bread. Or…” Sarah pulled out the sacred BDE binder and placed it on the table. “Between you and me, we’re selling fake IDs.” “Yeah!” Tai said. “There’s a few young ladies in there who have a mocha complexion almost as rich as yours!” Jacky elbowed Tai in the ribs. Tai sucked in a breath, while his boyfriend acted as nothing had just happened. My boyfriend is jealous over fuckin’ everything. The cheerleader looked over her shoulder to make sure the coast was clear. Then, she flipped through the pages as if she was dress shopping. “They contain the new state watermark and everything!” Sarah informed her customer. “We accept only cash at the moment. They cost-” “A hundred, dudette,” Jacky interjected. Sarah gave him a worrisome side-eye at the exorbitant price. But as expected, the rich cheerleader pulled out the bills and handed them over. “Oh, that makeup actually makes your eyes pop - no cap,” the cheerleader told Evelyn, before disappearing into the Beleavers crowd with her fake ID. “Mission accomplished!” Jacky cheered. They had managed to pull off just over 100 sales: 7500 bucks split four ways. Now, it was time to close up shop for the night. Soon, the Christian rock band would take the stage to celebrate God in a room full of students with brand new identities. “Come on, Tai,” Jacky said, smiling warmly. “Let’s grab some popcorn. I have somebody I want you to meet.” Tai waved at the girls as they watched them leave. “I...really don’t know what to make of Jacky,” Sarah admitted. “A few weeks ago, I tracked him down across campus because I thought he was smoking hot. I mean, he still is. But still…” “He’s a fucking fake,” Evelyn fumed. “That holier-than-thou douchelord can sit on a tack.” “Whoa, sounds like you need to relieve some stress,” Sarah chuckled, punching Evelyn’s arm. “Why don’t we head to the quad and settle our tie-breaker?” At that, Sarah and Evelyn left for one last grappling match to end them all. *** Winston and Gigi approached the Ballroom entrance, where thumping Christian rock rattled the door. “So...are you a Christian or are you here for the popcorn?” Winston asked. “A little bird told me that it is pretty tasty!” Gigi admitted sheepishly. “And I reckon that little bird was Frankie?” “Yes, actually! He’s supposed to meet me here. But...I haven’t heard from him in a few hours.” “Ah. Same with Claire.” Just like last week’s restaurant date, Gigi and Winston had been once again ghosted by their lovers. It had become a running meme at this point. “M-maybe their bus is running late?” Gigi suggested, failing to convince even herself. “Hey, while we’re meddlin’ in conspiracy theories, I’ve got one too. See, Frankie likes to cook. And I’mma bet he’s with Claire, baking her a fresh, homemade cream-” Gigi clamped her hand over Winston’s mouth. Gigi’s pupils said it all. So he opted to lay off the jokes. Neither either of them really believed their lovers were sneaking around with each other. Winston opened the ballroom door and promptly caught an elbow to the temple. “Oomph!” Winston groaned. Gigi slouched against the wall for safety. The scene was no Sunday morning gospel band. This was a Christian hardcore band. And they had just walked into a mosh pit. “W-Winston!” Gigi yelled over the screamo vocals. But among the flurry of flailing super-Christians, Winston had vanished. Gigi bent her knees and jumped as high as she could, searching for his cowboy hat in the crowd. Suddenly, a punk-rock girl came up from behind and lifted her into the air. “She’s tryin’ to go surfing!” the girl yelled, heaving her into the crowd like a FedEx package. Gigi gasped before landing into a sea of open hands. This “wave” slowly guided her through the spazzing strobe lights and fog. Suddenly, an anonymous hand grazed her breast, then very deliberately squeezed it. “W-whaaa!?” Gigi pulled her knee to her stomach, then kicked the culprit square in the face. “You bitch!” the fondler yelled psychotically, cupping a hand over his bleeding nose. “Throw this fucking slut overboard!” And, in unison, the moshers raised and lowered her body in their hands. “One, two, three!” Gigi flew into the air - falling, falling, falling until she crashed into a table of baked goods and bath bombs. Winded, she slipped behind the tablecloth and curled up under the table. The mob raged outside. “Animals,” Gigi whispered, rubbing her sore breast. Alone in the dark under that table, she wanted to cry. She could only imagine what Winston would have done if she caught that pervert red-handed. Maybe I should have let him keep his gun. Gigi turned on her phone’s flashlight and looked around. Under the table were several cardboard boxes. One, in particular, was labeled Sarah’s Box O’Fun. Gigi recognized it immediately. On move-in day, she’d watched Sarah unpack a huge bong from that very box. Then, Sarah had dared a drunk Winston to drink the bong water. He did. (“Gigi, meet my brother.”) This is...Sarah’s table? She’s here at Beleavers tonight? Feeling gutsy, she sifted through the box. On top of the mountain of bath bombs and baked goods, the B.D.E. binder sat there in all its glory. She flipped through pages upon pages of fake IDs. On a scratch sheet of notebook paper: a tally of sales for Sarah, Evelyn, Tai, and Claire. But no Winston. And slowly, her busy brain started to connect the dots. “Holy balls,” she whispered, snapping the stolen binder shut. She thought about taking it right then and there and returning it to its bearded beast of an owner. But another thought crossed her mind. I could leave it here and blackmail them for money, Gigi thought. All I have to do is threaten to tell Winston! The decision was set in stone. She left the binder behind and slipped out from under the table. But not before stealing a baseball-sized charcoal bath bomb. *** In the popcorn line, safe from the mosh pit, Jacky stood in front of Tai with his back turned. The blonde-haired surfer had been rambling excitedly with an Asian guy for five minutes now. And not once had Jacky thought to introduce him. “Oh, Tai Maple!” Jacky finally remembered, turning to face him. “This is my friend: Benji. Benji, meet Tai.” This freckle-faced Asian guy gave a slight bow. Tai immediately knew who he was. In fact, Gigi had given him the full scoop while she and Tai had shared her very first cheese pizza. It had all begun on the day where the freshmen tracked down Jacky in his mail truck. Jacky had mistaken the cross-dressing Gigi with the Benji who now stood before him. And this Benji was allegedly Jacky’s secret long-time crush. “Benji, would you please grab us a popcorn?” Jacky asked politely, stepping out of the line. “I need to talk to my friend here...alone.” “Friend,” Tai echoed, following Jacky like a lost puppy. “Tai, this is just as hard for me, brother,” Jacky frowned, more condescending than empathetic. “The hell it is!” Tai blew up, drowned out by the hardcore band. “You had your hand in my pants just a few hours ago! Were you fucking planning on leaving me this whole time? For him?!” “Tai, listen man. Look, I know everything. When you showed up at the coffee shop, I knew you’d been spying on me long before you met me. I first thought our meeting was a...beautiful coincidence. But all along, you were pulling the wool over my eyes. But that’s okay, brochacho! Because I gave you a chance anyway. See, I wanted to save you from what you are! You’re a liar, bro. But in God’s eyes, we all-” “I let you take my goddamn virginity!” Tai exploded over the music, his jaw twitching uncontrollably. A pitiful look from Jacky. “I see. That does complicate things a bit, on the real. Look, you can have a quarter of my earnings from tonight’s sales. And I promise to pray for you every night before-” “Fuck you and fuck your God! I hope you die in your fucking sleep! I hate you, I hate you, I HATE YOU!” Tai turned around and walked confidently out of the ballroom, holding his head up high while vertigo weighed it down. But nobody stopped him. And not once did he look back. *** Winston limped down the Learning Center hallway with a pounding headache. He struggled to keep his twitching, swollen eye open while passing the empty classrooms. Where he was going, not even he knew. He just had to get far away from that mosh pit. “Calm, child! You’re quite a fool to be walking around with a concussion!” Winston turned around. Through his good eye, he saw a large, middle-aged Haitian woman in an African floral dress and headwrap. She held a bible in her large, smooth hands. “Join us, child,” the woman beckoned, pointing into a classroom of Haitian students in chairs. Winston smiled weakly, thinking back to his controversial speech from class that morning. “I mighty appreciate it, ma’am. But I reckon I ain’t much worthy.” He turned to walk away, but accidentally stumbled like a drunkard into the woman’s arms. “Soft, my child,” she soothed him, ushering him into the room of students. “Not one of us is worthy. But there is good news.” A half-hour later, Winston was sitting in the front row of the Haitian Student Ministry with a bag of frozen peas pressed to his swollen eye. The matriarch, Nadia, was delivering a passionate Psalm 107 sermon to her students. “Let the one who is wise heed these things,” Nadia read. “And ponder the loving deeds of the Lord. Amen. Now, to conclude, I’d like to introduce our guest: Winston from Beleavers. Please, child, tell us about yourself.” The young men on either side of Winston gave him a back pat. Winston slowly stood up and tipped his cowboy hat. In his mind, it was his Public Speaking 101 all over again. But in class, he hadn’t been standing in front of all-black students. Like he was now. “Well, like I told Nurse Nadia earlier. I don’t feel like I’m worthy among y’all fine folks here. I mighty appreciate Nadia for patching me up. And for y’all’s hospitality.” Winston headed for the door, but Nadia blocked the exit. “Please, child. Do your sins trouble you? May it ease your soul to know that there are redeemed people in this very room who have committed acts of credit card fraud, gang violence, and even beastiality?” Winston blinked. But somehow, Nadia’s words did not repel these people away. They brought them closer. So Winston opened his mouth and confessed what had been brewing in his mind all day. “Well, uh...today in speech class, I said the N-word. I didn’t mean to be ugly when I said it. Only said it to take power away from it. But I reckon I really hurt a couple of people in that class. The only reason the teacher didn’t ban me from the class was ‘cause she wanted me to learn a lesson this year. And I’m tryin’, Nadia. I’m...tryin’ real hard.” The students didn’t come forward to comfort Winston, who now choked on tears. But they didn’t back away either. It was only when Nadia lay a hand on him that the other students followed suit. “It sounds like you have a lot to think on,” Nadia said warmly, as layers of hands covered him. “I wish you luck on your journey. We will always be here whenever Beleavers get a little too...rowdy.” Nadia and the students led a closing prayer for Winston. He smiled as a rush of dopamine reached the brain. The tears flowed freely, even as he used the bag of frozen peas to dab his face. “Amen,” Nadia concluded. Everybody left Winston’s side and began stacking chairs. “Wait,” Winston said, returning to his confident southern drawl. “Let me take care of them-there chairs. It’s...the least this poor white boy can do.” And so, Winston began folding chairs alone while the others left. And like Jesus on the Via Dolorosa, he began carrying ten chairs down the long hallway toward the supply closet. And like all other men, Winston was hell-bent on making only one trip. “Winston!” Gigi blurted out as he turned a corner. With his hands full, his black eye had nowhere to hide. Gigi dropped her jaw. Then, her mouth formed a pitiful frown. She kissed her tattoo-free hand and gently pressed her fingertips on Winston’s eyelid. “One more time,” Winston suggested with a grin. Gigi hesitantly kissed her hand, then reached for Winston’s eyelid again. Suddenly, Winston playfully bit her hand. “Eek!” Gigi quickly brought her hand to her chest. “You’re a good woman, Gigi,” Winston chuckled, reflecting on his own moral character. Both of their faces flushed red. He shook his head, arms trembling from the weight they carried. “Look, I gotta put these chairs up. Walk with me.” Gigi carried four of the chairs. And even then, she lagged behind Winston. “So, what’s the word on Frankie? You find him in that-there mob?” Gigi shook her head, her long black hair whipping back and forth. “Nope! And Claire?” “Shit,” Winston said, emotionally detached. “Honestly, I don’t expect to see her ever again.” “Hmmm...so why don’t they love us anymore?” “Beats me,” said Winston, as they set their chairs down at the closet door. “But if I was a betting man, I’d wager it’s because you and I seem to be attached at the hip these days.” “Do you think they don’t trust us together? I mean, as friends?” “Should they?” Gigi opened her mouth, then closed it. Then, they quickly reached for the doorknob at the same time. A moment passed, and they did not move their hands. Slowly, her earthy brown eyes met his icy blue ones. Gigi’s tattoo was on fire. Together, they turned the doorknob. And lo and behold: it was Frank and Claire. Frank’s pants were around his ankles - all eight inches of uncut glory on full display. Claire was on her knees, snorting an eight-inch line of red-and-white cocaine from root to tip. As soon as they were spotted, Claire frantically wiped her nose while Frank shuffled to button his pants. “W-w-woe is me!” Frank moaned in despair. “It doth appear that our feline hath escaped its rucksack!” “Like, no fucking shit, Sherlock!” Claire snapped, brushing the cocaine off her shirt. “Do you ever, like, shut the fuck up? Like, look Winston and Gigi! I promise this is, like, not what it looks like. It was just, like, like, like, like, like-” Winston and Gigi slowly stared at each other - sly grins on their faces. “Um...are you thinking what I’m thinking?” Gigi asked Winston cheerfully. “I sure the hell am, buddy,” Winston answered. They each grabbed a folding chair and approached the pair of adulterers. *** A short while later, at dusk, Winston and Gigi sat on the curb of the Chadwick Hughes Learning Center - handcuffed. A fresh-faced, fat officer stood with his arms crossed, staring at the excited pair of criminals. “So, you mean to tell me you…stabbed this chick with a chair?” the officer asked, dumbfounded. “Yep!” Gigi piped up, a wide smile plastered on her face. “I managed to wield my melee weapon like a medieval knight, riding with the north winds until that raging thundercunt landed on her assless keister!” “That was fuckin’ awesome,” Winston said, giving her an elbow bump. “But not as awesome as me crackin’ Frankie’s skull.” The cop knitted his brows, taking extensive notes. “Alrighty then. Anything else y’all wanna add?” Gigi and Winston grinned at each other, adrenaline fueling their veins. They had truly saved the best for last. “Then, I took out my phone,” Winston started. “And I showed them a pic of-” “He flashed them a pic of him taking my virginity!” Gigi finished proudly. But it was a lie. No, Winston had instead shown the cheaters the photo of Gigi eating cheese for the first time with Winston. And despite being attacked with a chair, that photo had shocked Frank more than anything. Cop 2 walked over to Cop 1 and whispered something into his ear. Cop 1 nodded and pointed at Jacky and Claire. The pair looked tired and traumatized, and were hugging and consoling each other next to another cop car. “Y’all got off lucky this time,” Cop 2 jeered. “They ain’t gonna press charges. You must have some deep dirt on ‘em or something.” He wasn’t wrong. That red-and-white cocaine was Ryan’s signature product. The BDE fraternity circulated that cocaine more widely than Jacky and his fake IDs. And it was a much larger, lucrative operation. In Winston’s eyes, Claire didn’t want to risk Winston snitching in retaliation for being thrown in jail. “Ladies first,” said Cop 1, helping Gigi off the curb to her feet. He spun her around and unlocked her handcuffs. “What kinda ink job is that?” the cop muttered, reading the silver nitrate tattoo on Gigi’s palm. “Winston...wait a sec. Hey, that’s your name, right?” Winston cocked his head at the cop’s question. Gigi’s knees trembled as she let out a nervous chuckle. It surely wasn’t the craziest thing to happen that day. But goddamn, would it be hard to explain. “Gigi, what the hell?” Winston muttered with a blank expression. “Call me Ji-hye!” Gigi blurted out proudly. Winston shook his head with a smile as he watched her disappear into the Asheville night.
2020.08.19 23:48 Pukey_McBarffaceWhat was the dumbest reason you know of for someone getting sent to a TTI facility?
I didn't post this in my first question, but I've been wondering about it for a while and I guess I was in a troubled teen program, of a kind. I don't want to publicly dox myself, so I'll just say that this program was involved in a few schools of the MCPS (Maryland school system for Montgomery County) system. There were weird punishments and odd rules galore, and none of them actually made any sense. If anyone recognizes it from what I wrote I'd love for you to PM me, I'd love to talk about it (in a more private area, lol) Anyway, I'm trying to get a better idea of the spectrum of youth that get swept up by this destructive system that calls itself "therapeutic". I know that kids have been sent to these places by the courts, so some of the kids are, at least on paper, criminals in need of a place to "reform" them, or break them, or something. Then you have parents whose kids are well and truly (and often temporarily) disturbed and see this as a viable option to help heal them. But then, you have the terrible parents who send their kid to a place like these because they're gay, or because they've started dressing like a goth or a punk or whatever, or because they're dating someone, or any other dumb reasons. So I ask you, what's the dumbest reason you've heard of for a kid being kidnapped and imprisoned in these awful placess?
Hello! Welcome or welcome back to Capy's Survivor! For this season we are headed to gorgeous Guatemala!

Being the offspring of a wall street banker, Xangetti has known what people can do for money for a very early age. He began dabbling in the real estate business to make money, but as he soon started making cash, he began experimenting on how high he can push people to pay him. With interest rates through the roof, and the immediate eviction of anyone who doesn't pay the rent, Xangetti has been officially been recognized as a loan shark, and after 10 years of scaring people into paying ridiculous amounts of money, he got arrested for it, losing all of the clients. Now out of prison and taking a loan from his dad, he needs to get back on top somehow, and what better way to do so than play Survivor. (made by u/swoldow)
Cyan T'Blanche, 26, Professional Poker Player
Cyan made a name for herself after spending 4 years as a professional poker player.

An avid SURVIVOR fan, Hayden would like to win the money for him and his girlfriend of one year, Kristina. He thinks it'll be a very good anniversary gift for her, haha. (made by u/TDSwaggyBoy)
Jackson Bocase, 25, ServeMusician
Jackson has always been into music for as long as he remembered. He especially got into rock & roll and punk rock. However, when he decided to pursue music for his future, none of his parents approved of his decision and he moved out as soon as he graduated. Now, he's getting by with odd jobs, but when he's not working, he's rehearsing with his band and getting gigs, and developed a bit of a "hot-headed British rocker vibe". He's looking forward to competing on Survivor and win the money he needs to help promote himself. He won't change who he is and if anyone pisses him off, he'll gladly write their name down.

Garett Langley, 79, Retired Restauranteur
Working for almost 60 years as a restauranteur, Garett recently retired to enjoy the more fun things in life. Spending time with his family, going on vacations, and just making the most of the time he has left. And what better way to do so than go on SURVIVOR? It was always a goal of his, but he always postponed it. Saying "next year", "next time". But now? Seems like a better time than ever. (made by u/TDSwaggyBoy)

She came back to prove that she can play the game of Survivor all the way through, and do pretty well at it on the way. (made by u/swoldow)
Lana Alexandrov, 23, Streamer
She grew up with a single dad who was an alcoholic due to her mother's death when giving birth to her brother. She had to assume responsibility and take care of her younger brother by herself while keeping a stable income for her family.

The Season:Capy's Survivor: Guatemala Episode 1:The camera pans out onto 2 boats riding the waves of Guatemala, headed toward the beach where the host himself stands. On one boat, the Nakum tribe, led by Sabrina Boyd, Runner-up of Palau. Alongside her tribe, Cyan, Etta, Garett, Hayden, Jackson, Kasey, Nicole, and Xangetti. On the other boat is the Yaxha tribe, led by Natalia “Talia” Grey, known for being rocked out in Vanuatu. Her tribe is Gamebot, AC, Andreita, Surf, Dove, Lana, Olin, and Black Diamond (lots of nicknames). This is Capy’s Survivor: Guatemala! Once the boats reach the beach, the host says his hellos to the castaways, and tells them the opening speech, and that they can head to their camp to get set up before their first immunity challenge. But there is a twist, getting to their camps will also be their first reward challenge, as the tribe who gets to the ruins first will get to live there for the game. Yaxha wins the reward challenge, also winning a piece of flint. At the Nakum camp, Sabrina quickly starts working on an alliance, as that is the strategy that got her to the final 2 in Palau. She approaches Garett with an offer, as he seems wise and a mental competitor. She also approaches Nicole, as she seems strategic, and that she wouldn’t be half bad at challenges. She finally approaches Jackson and Hayden, as they are meatshields and can be used in challenges, they all accept that she is the returning player, and they would rather be with her than against her, at least this early on in the game. Cyan knows about this whole shenanigans and approaches Etta, Kasey, and Xangetti to ally with them, they all accept the offer as well. At the Yuxha camp, Gamebot quickly allies with Andreita and Olin, as Anderita seems like a more mental competitor, and Olin seems like a physical threat, and Gamebot thinks that they are the people he would probably work the best with. Black Diamond also decides to quickly ally, she approaches Lana, because she seems like she could be a wildcard, a physical, strategic, or social threat if she played her cards right. She also approaches AC and Dove, as they seem like they could be used as meatshields, and are easy to get along with. Both alliances also approach Talia, but she refuses both, saying that she doesn’t want to put her trust in one place this early on in the game, and she also knows that swing votes usually make it farther than the opposing alliance, as they need your vote. Surf is hanging by the water, and Black Diamond approaches him asking to join her alliance, but he refuses, stating basically what Talia told her. Yaxha wins the immunity challenge, also winning themselves yet another piece of flint. At the Nakum camp, they are trying to decide who goes home. Nicole thinks that it will be best to vote out Kasey, as she seems like a strategic threat. Sabrina agrees with this. Also causing Jackson, Garett, and Hayden to agree. Cyan thinks that Garett should go, as he is holding the tribes back in challenges, she approaches everyone but Garett with this idea. But the other alliance wants to keep their majority vote for now. At tribal council, by a vote of 5-4, Kasey, the tribe has spoken. Episode 2:The Nakum tribe wins the reward challenge, winning themselves fishing gear. The Nakum tribe also wins the second immunity challenge. Etta and Cyan have a major fight over Etta’s loyalty to the alliance. At the Yaxha camp, Black Diamond is helping more around camp, even though she is the leader of the majority alliance, she still thinks there might be a target on her back because of that. Black Diamond tells her alliance that she thinks that Surf has to go, as he didn’t align himself with anyone, and is overall just being a sketchy player. Her alliance agrees with this. Lana also approaches the other alliance, who is also discussing who to vote out, and they said that they already put his name out there and that they think that he should go as well. Gamebot approaches Surf and Talia and tells them that their alliance is voting out Dove because he is a social threat. At tribal council, by a vote of 7-2, Surf, the tribe has spoken. Episode 3:The Nakum tribe wins their second reward in a row, winning themselves pillows, blankets, and a tarp. The Yaxha tribe wins the immunity challenge, sending Nakum to their second tribal council. At the Nakum camp, after more arguing and disagreements, the majority alliance is very weak now, but as always they stay together for the votes. Sabrina says that Cyan is the biggest strategic threat to their game, as she is a poker player and knows how to read people, along with she made the other alliance. Her alliance agrees with her. Cyan still thinks that Garett should be the one going home, as he is holding the tribe back in challenges. Cyan goes to Jackson and Hayden, and tries to exchange their votes for voting Garett out; they seem to agree with it. At tribal council, by a vote of 5-3, Cyan, the tribe has spoken. Episode 4:The host calls the tribes down to the challenge area, when they get there he announces a twist. The tribe swap occurs, the new Nakum tribe is Gamebot, AC, Andreita, Garett, Jackson, Sabrina, Black Diamond, and Xangretti. While the next Yaxha tribe is Etta, Hayden, Dove, Lana, Talia, Nicole, and Olin. Garett, Jackson, and Sabrina keep their little alliance, even without Hayden and Nicole. Back at the Nakum camp, Andreita and Gamebot also keep their little alliance without Odin. AC and Black Diamond decide to pair up as well. Then Garett, Jackson, Sabrina, and Xangetti ally for votes. So do AC, Andreita, Black Diamond, and Gamebot. At the Yaxha camp, Nicole and Hayden keep their little alliance, hoping to make it to the merge with Garett, Jackson, and Sabrina. Dove and Lana also stay in an alliance. As the other tribe did, Etta, Hayden, and Nicole allied votes, as did Dove, Lana, Olin, and Talia. The Yaxha tribe wins the immunity challenge, sending the new Nakum tribe to their first tribal council. At the Yaxha camp, Olin and Talia have a major fight because Olin put her name up as a possibility for the next tribal council. At the Nakum camp, nobody is appreciating Andreita’s behavior, as she is being quite lazy as they are trying to re-setup everything around camp, and all she has done is collected some firewood. Despite this, Black Diamond knows her vote is going to be useful and tells her alliance that Garett is holding their alliance back in the challenges and that he needs to go. They agree. The original Nakum tribe decides that AC is their biggest threat, as he is a physical threat. Black Diamond knows that Xangetti isn’t in the actual 3-person alliance in the original Nakum, so she approaches him and tells him that her alliance is voting for Garett, he joyfully accepts the offer, as he has been trying to get Garett out for a while. Sabrina approaches Andreita and tells her they will keep her safe if she votes out AC with them, but Andreita knows that AC is going to be too valuable to lose pre-merge. At tribal council, by a vote of 5-3, Xangetti. Episode 5:Nakum once again wins the reward challenge, winning themselves chips, drinks, and a crocodile-proof swimming cage. Yaxha wins immunity again, sending Nakum to their second tribal council in a row. Because of the split between the tribes, Sabrina’s alliance loses some loyalty. At the Nakum camp, Sabrina, Jackson, and Xangetti decide that Black Diamond is their biggest adversary, as she is a strategic threat, and they need to get her out before the merge. She approached A.C. and told him that they wouldn’t target him in exchange for his vote. He agrees, saying that he doesn’t fully trust Black Diamond either. But little did he know, Sabrina went to his alliance, telling them that he approached her and her alliance with the offer of safety if they voted for Black Diamond. At tribal council, by a vote of 5-2, A.C., the tribe has spoken. Episode 6:The Nakum tribe wins yet another reward challenge, winning themselves a grill, burgers, beer, and root beer. The host also adds another surprise reward, they get to compete for individual immunity! As tomorrow’s tribal council is going to be a double tribal council. Black Diamond wins the immunity challenge, meaning Sabrina is going to have to rethink her plan. Sabrina and Xangetti are still getting along, even after Sabrina left him out of the plan in the last tribal council. Gamebot and Black Diamond decide that Jackson needs to go, as they don’t want to target Sabrina quite yet, and Jackson is her biggest ally. Sabrina says that Andreita needs to go, for the same reason, she doesn’t want to target Gamebot and Black Diamond quite yet, but Andreita is their closest ally. Black Diamond approaches Xangetti, knowing that Sabrina left him out of the plan at the last tribal council, and she says she will keep him immune over Sabrina if he votes with her, he agrees. He also agrees because he thinks Jackson is a bigger threat than Andreita. Sabrina also approaches Gamebot, but he is too intelligent, and he knows Sabrina is just trying to get the numbers, and won’t keep him safe for long. At the Yaxha camp, Talia doesn’t trust Hayden and thinks he is too much of a threat to keep around. Her alliance also doesn’t want to lose the numbers so they agree. Nicole and Hayden think that Dove is their biggest threat, as he might float his way to the end. Nicole approaches Lana, but once again, she doesn’t want to vote against her alliance so they lost the numbers. Both tribes arrive at tribal council, the host tells the Yaxha tribe to sit down. That the Nakum is going first, and they commence the strategizing and the host’s questions for them. At tribal council, by a vote of 4-2, Jackson, the tribe has spoken. He then tells the Yaxha tribe to come to the voting area, once again after a couple of minutes of strategizing and the host’s questions, they are ready. At tribal council, by a vote of 4-3, Hayden, the tribe has spoken. Episode 7:The Yaxha tribe wins the reward challenge, winning themselves a chocolate feast and a zipline over the Guatemalan rainforest. The Yaxha tribe also wins immunity once again, sending Nakum to another tribal council. Sabrina is acting too cocky around camp, and with a big target already on her back, this is not good for her game. Nicole is trying to earn the trust and respect of other people, as she feels like she's next, so she talks with Etta, and they end up bonding quite a bit. Sabrina and Xangetti decided that it would be best to gun for Black Diamond. Sabrina says she will go and try to convince her allies. But as always, Sabrina has a different plan. Sabrina goes to the 3-person alliance and tells them that they can vote her out at any time if they vote with her for Xangetti tonight. She tells them to think about it, he is a physical, mental, and strategic threat. They agree with her. At tribal council, by a vote of 4-1, Xangetti, the tribe has spoken. Episode 8:The host sends treemail to the 2 tribes, asking them to come to the challenge area. Once they are there he announces the expected, the merge! He also congratulates Gamebot, Andreita, Etta, Dove, Lana, Talia, Nicole, Olin, Sabrina, and Black Diamond on making it this far in the game, for one even twice. He then tells them they are free to head to the Xhakum camp. The host also announces a new twist, there will be an idol, which can be played before the votes hidden in camp, this idol is called the HIDDEN IMMUNITY IDOL, and it essentially works as a one-time immunity necklace. Back at camp, alliance, and a lot of them, are forming. Nicole and Sabrina, now with all their other alliance members gone, have a dynamic duo, and Sabrina is planning to put more blindsides on her resume, alongside Nicole. Andreita, Gamebot, and Olin also form a final three pact in the ruins of their old alliance. Black Diamond, Dove, and Lana do the same thing. Nicole also forms a final 2 pact with Etta, as they bonded while on a tribe together. Black Diamond also forms another final three pact with Anderita and Gamebot, just to secure even more votes. Talia allies with Olin, Dove, and Lana as well. Nicole also allies herself, Sabrina, and Etta. Andreita, Black Diamond, Dove, Gamebot, Lana, Olin, and Talia ally because they were all originally from the same tribe. Black Diamond, Gamebot, and Andreita also ally with Sabrina, just in case. Dove, Etta, Lana, Nicole, Olin, and Talia also ally. Nicole wins the first immunity challenge, making the primary targets Etta and Sabrina. Black Diamond says that they have more than enough votes wise, so she thinks it will be smart to take out Talia right now. Talia hears about this from Andreita and decides to target her. She approaches Etta, Sabrina, and Nicole and tells them about it, and they decide to split their vote because they want Talia gone. Talia even tries to convince Olin, Dove, and Lana that Andreita needs to go. But they want to stick with the numbers. At tribal council, by a vote of 6-2-2, Talia, the tribe has spoken. Episode 9:Nicole wins the reward challenge, winning herself a feast of lobster, steak, and ice-cold beer! Nicole also wins her third challenge in a row by winning immunity. At camp, Sabrina suggests that Nicole stops winning so many challenges, as it's putting an even bigger target on their back than is already there. Sabrina and Nicole decide that they want Andreita gone, they approach Dove, Lana, and Olin, asking them to vote with the 3 of them, and that Andreita might float her way to the end if not. They agree. Originally Black Diamond wanted Sabrina gone, but Olin tells her about how Dove and Lana agreed to vote out Andreita, and she now wants Dove gone. She tries to convince Lana once again, even for safety, but Lana just doesn’t fully trust Black Diamond, she never has. At tribal council, by a vote of 5-4, Andreita, the tribe has spoken. Episode 10:Gamebot, Sabrina, Dove, and Black Diamond win a helicopter ride to a private home, where they can do anything. Olin wins the immunity challenge. Back at camp, Black Diamond wants Etta gone, as she is an all-around threat, and it would also hurt Sabrina’s and Nicole’s games. But Sabrina, Nicole, and Etta have other plans. They approach Gamebot and Olin, telling them that Lana is talking about voting them out next. They fall for it and agree to vote for Lana, but what they didn’t know is that Lana found the hidden immunity idol, and is going to play it. What they also didn’t know is that they approached Dove, and he ended up telling Lana, who he knows has the idol. The contestants arrive at tribal council. The host asks if anybody would like to play the hidden immunity idol, now would be the time and place to do so. Lana stands up and pulls the idol out of her bag, and hands it to the host. He confirms that he is the hidden immunity idol, and nobody can vote for Lana. The 3-person-alliance knows one of them is going and decides to just vote for Dove because he told Lana. At tribal council, by a vote of 5-3, Etta, the tribe has spoken. Episode 11:Sabrina wins reward, winning a trip to a hot springs waterfall with a feast and a massage. She takes Dove in attempts to gain his trust. Sabrina also wins the immunity challenge. Even though the alliance thinks that Nicole needs to go, Black Diamond is letting her emotions get the best of her and wants Lana gone for not telling her about the idol, because Black Diamond thinks she could've convinced people not to vote for her, and not had her waste her idol. Lana knows about this, and Sabrina and Nicole approach her and Dove, saying that they need Black Diamond out, they both agree. But Dove still wants the numbers, so he considers it as well. At tribal council, by a vote of 4-3, Lana, the tribe has spoken. Episode 12:The Loved One’s Auction is the reward challenge, meaning there is no official reward challenge. Nicole wins immunity and is safe at the next tribal council. Black Diamond, once again letting her emotions get the best of her, wants Dove eliminated. Sabrina and Nicole know this so they approach Dove, and offer to vote out Black Diamond, he agrees. They also approach Olin, he says he needs to think about it, and he decides not to because he knows Black Diamond will probably take him to the end. At tribal council, there is a 3-3 tie. Both Black Diamond and Dove state their cases. The revote is a 2-2 tie. The host calls Sabrina, Olin, and Gamebot up to the podium to draw rocks. At tribal council, by the draw of the purple rock, Olin, the tribe has spoken. Episode 13:Black Diamond isn’t affected by Olin’s elimination, as she knew a rock draw would occur, but she would be safe. Black Diamond also wins the reward challenge, she brings Sabrina along for the trip in attempts to gain her vote. Gamebot wins the immunity challenge. Sabrina tells Black Diamond that it is time to vote out Dove, she agrees with her, as she attempted to get Dove out last week as well. Gamebot also accepts the offer, as he is a close ally of Black Diamond. Sabrina tells Dove about the vote, saying it was Black Diamond, and that she and Nicole would vote her out with him. He agrees. Sabrina tells Nicole to vote for Black Diamond, for nothing but stirring the pot. At tribal council, by a vote of 3-2, Dove, the tribe has spoken. Finale:Gamebot wins the immunity challenge. Black Diamond wants Sabrina out, so she tells Gamebot to vote for her, and that she knows that it will cause a tie, but she thinks she can beat Sabrina at the fire-making challenge. Sabrina tells Nicole the same thing, she knows it will cause a tie between herself and Black Diamond, but she won the fire-making challenge last season, she can do it again. At tribal council, by a vote of 2-2, there is a tie between Black Diamond and Sabrina, meaning a fire-making challenge must occur. At tribal council, by a vote of 2-2, and then losing the fire-making challenge, Black Diamond, the tribe has spoken. Nicole wins the final immunity, and she has been allied with Sabrina the whole game and knows she will win much more easily against Sabrina than Gamebot. So she decides to eliminate Gamebot. At tribal council, by a vote of 1-0, Gamebot, the tribe has spoken. The Reunion:Nicole and Sabrina state their cases. Nicole says that she played a much better physical game than Sabrina did, as she won a total of 8 challenges. Sabrina rebuttals with the fact that she played a much better strategic game than Nicole, and that there should be more thought into the voting than just who won more challenges.

The Season:Capy's Survivor: Pearl Islands Episode 1:The host welcomes the tribes to the camp, after getting off the boat. He announces that for the first time since Marquesas, there will be no twist deciding the tribes. After this announcement, he announces the tribes. On the Drake Tribe is Amos, Carter, Dex, Fadia, June, Neleh, Nick, and Sanna. On the Morgan Tribe is Allie, Ben, Brad, Emerson, Georgia, River, Romeo, and Tara. After announcing the tribes, he tells them that they can head back to their respective camps to settle in before their first immunity challenge tomorrow. At the Drake camp, Dexter, Neleh, and Sanna connect immediately, and they form a very early final three pact. Amos, Carter, Fadia, and June form another alliance to combat that one. Due to Dex knowing about the alliance, he hopes to get Nick as a swing vote. At the Morgan camp, River isn’t hesitating to form an alliance, she chooses Allie because she seems nice and she could be helpful when it comes to mental challenges. She also chooses Romeo because he can be used as a meatshield. She approaches Ben for the same very reason. Brad knows about this alliance, and knowing his brother is in the alliance (Romeo), he wants to form a separate alliance, so he approaches Tara, Emerson, and Georgia with a deal for alliances. Georgia declines because she wants to hang low and play more under-the-radar, at least for the early game. But Emerson and Tara accept, and Brad hopes he earned Georgia’s trust and vote by approaching her, as River did not. The Morgan tribe wins the immunity challenge, also winning water-proof matches. This means that the Drake tribe will be going to tribal. At the Drake camp, Fadia isolates herself, feeling as though she caused her tribe to not win, quitting her alliance in the process, but saying she will still vote with them. They say that they are voting for Neleh, which is a lie, as they are planning on voting their old ally out. They convince Nick to vote with them, as she is untrustworthy for joining the alliance, just to leave it a couple of days into the game. Nick tells the alliance of Sanna, Neleh, and Dex about this, and he claims it was Amos’ scheme. They approach Fadia with the plan, and she agrees to vote with them for Amos. River, even though she is the creator of the alliance, quits the alliance and isolates herself, because even though her tribe won, it was just barely, and she thinks she is the main cause of that. At tribal council, by a vote 5-3, Amos, the tribe has spoken. Episode 2:The Drake tribe wins the reward challenge, winning themselves the first of three pieces of a treasure map to hidden treasure. They also send Carter to loot one item from the opposing tribes camp, he takes their matches. The Morgan tribe, even though they are now match-less, they still win the immunity challenge, meaning that the Drake tribe will be going to their second tribal in a row. At the Morgan camp, the alliance of Allie, Ben, and Romeo dissolves since their leader, River, left the alliance. Sanna, Dex, and Neleh approach Nick saying that they are voting off Carter, as he is a psychical threat. But Carter and June approach Fadia and Nick, claiming that Dex should be the one going home, as he is untrustworthy, and he holds the tribe back in challenges. At tribal council, by a vote of 4-3, Dex, the tribe has spoken. Episode 3:The Drake tribe wins both reward and their first immunity challenge. Drake also wins their second piece of the treasure map, only one remaining now. They steal a couple of pieces of firewood from the opposing tribes’ camp. At the Morgan tribe, River approaches her old alliance, stating that she knows she betrayed them, but she wants Brad gone, as he is a psychical threat to their game at the moment. While Allison is hesitant at first, as she believes you should wait until near-merge to vote out people who can help in challenges. But Romeo rallying for getting his brother out sparks her interest more. While the other alliance is planning on voting out River, as she has proven to be untrustworthy. At tribal council, there is a tie, and only then does River realize her mistake in not approaching someone else, but shockingly it’s not Allie who wants to change her vote, it’s Ben, as he thinks that River can’t be trusted. At tribal council, by a vote of 4-4, and a revote of 4-2, River, the tribe has spoken. Episode 4:Drake wins their third reward challenge, also winning the final piece of the map. That finally leads them to the buried treasure, which contains luxury items to make camp life easier. They also steal more firewood from the Morgan camp. The Drake tribe also wins immunity, and, because of the pirate theme this season, they get to kidnap a player off the other tribe to bring onto their tribe. They choose Brad, as they know he is good in psychical challenges. By kidnapping him, they also give him immunity because he can skip tribal council. Fadia and Sanna have a fight about not Sanna not doing her part in helping around camp. Tara, Emerson, and Brad become a very strong alliance, even though Brad is skipping tribal council that night. Allie and Ben want to vote for Georgia because she is a social threat. But Romeo isn’t for it, and he approaches the other alliance without his alliance knowing, and tells them what they are doing and that he will vote with them in exchange for safety. They agree to these terms and say they are voting for Allison, one, because if they don’t get her out now, she might float her way to the end, and two, with this new information, that puts a bigger target on her back. Allie and Ben approach Emerson, asking him to vote with them, because Georgia will socialize her way out of being the target. He acts convinced. At tribal council, by a vote of 4-2, Allie, the tribe has spoken. Episode 5:Brad will be competing with the Drake tribe for only this reward challenge, as he was kidnapped by them, but will head back to camp with the Morgan tribe afterward. Despite this, the Morgan tribe wins their first reward challenge, winning a bunch of luxury items and their first piece of the treasure map. The Drake tribe secures its third immunity. At the Drake tribe, Fadia and Neleh have a major fight over Fadia arguing with Sanna about not doing anything, but she is truly the one not pitching in. At the Morgan camp, tensions are rising due to them having to vote out another person. Emerson, Brad, and Tara tell Ben and Romeo that they will be voting for Georgia. Romeo doesn’t agree, so he makes plans with Georgia and Ben to try to rock out someone. But Ben doesn’t want to take the risk of getting rocked out. At tribal council, by a vote 4-2, Georgia, the tribe has spoken. Episode 6:The Morgan tribe wins the reward challenge, winning their second piece of the treasure map and stealing a blanket from the Drake tribe. They also win the immunity, sending Drake to tribal council for the first time since episode 2. June and Carter hatch a deal with Neleh and Sanna, in exchange for voting together, they eliminate Fadia, who has been a target since day one for her prowess in challenges and socially, and because she causes constant drama at camp. They agree, But then Nick and Fadia approach Carter and June with a plan to vote out Neleh, as she is an under-the-radar player, who might float her way to the end. But since they just sold their souls (votes) to Neleh and Sanna, they don’t think its a good idea to get on their bad side right now. At tribal council, by a vote of 4-2, Fadia, the tribe has spoken. Episode 7:When the tribes head over to the immunity challenges, they see a strange sight, standing by the host is 6 other people, as they get closer, they realize those six people are the six eliminated castaways. The host announces that this is the Outcast twist. There will be 3 teams competing in the immunity challenge, and the Outcast twist works like this. If The Outcasts beat one tribe, that tribe will have to go to Tribal Council and vote a player off. The Outcasts will then vote one player back into the game. If the Outcasts beat both tribes, Morgan and Drake will both go to Tribal Council, and both vote a player off. The Outcasts would then vote two players back into the game in that scenario. If both Drake and Morgan win, The Outcasts' chance to get back in the game will be forfeited. The Outcasts win the immunity and they will be voting two people back into the game. The alliance of Emerson, Tara, and Brad dissolve, so they don’t have a target on their back heading into the double-elimination, and the merge. At the Drake camp, Carter and June are targeting Sanna, while Sanna and Neleh are targeting Carter. Both of the duos approach Nick, and he decides on the person he most deems a threat comes to the merge, as he knows it is happening soon. At the Morgan camp, Brad and Romeo decide to team up against Brad’s former allies Tara and Emerson, as they are threats strategically and psychically, they also convince Ben to vote with them in exchange for safety. Emerson and Tara also offer the same thing, saying they are voting Romeo out, and Ben thinks, about who he should align with, and who he should vote out the psychical threat, or strategic threat. Everyone arrives at the tribal council area, and sit down on the jury benches. The host announces that the Drake tribe is going first. At tribal council (A), by a vote of 3-2, Carter, the tribe has spoken. The host then announces that the Morgan tribe is up next. At tribal council (B), by a vote of 3-2, Tara, the tribe has spoken. Ben decided strategic is better to vote out, as it is better to align yourself with challenge beasts come to the merge. The host finally calls up the Outcasts, and they said, even though it was a hard decision, as everyone wanted to come back into the game, they decided that the first and last person eliminated should return. Therefore, Amos and Fadia are headed back into the game. Episode 8:The host calls the contestants to the challenge area, and announces the merge. He also congratulates Amos, Ben, Brad, Emerson, Fadia, June, Neleh, Nick, Romeo, and Sanna on making it to the merge. Neleh and Sanna keep their final two pact, as they always intended. They also ally with Amos, Fadia, June, and Nick as the original Drake tribe, for votes. Ben, Brad, Emerson, and Romeo align as the original Morgan tribe, and hope to find a weak spot in the other alliance, and hope to poke it enough so that they either dissolve or vote one of their own members out. Neleh wins the immunity challenge. The Morgan tribe attempts to convince June that Nick is more of a threat than any of them and that they will just boot her when they need to. She disagrees, saying that they will boot the outcasts. The Drake alliance decides on voting out Romeo, as he is untrustworthy, a psychical threat, and a strategic threat. At tribal council, by a vote of 6-4, Romeo, the tribe has spoken. Episode 9: Neleh wins the reward challenge, and already being in the majority alliance, decides to bring her final two partners, Sanna, for the reward instead of trying to gain someone’s trust. Neleh wins her second immunity in a row, painting a big target on her and Sanna’s back, making Neleh feel like she just made a big mistake. The Drake alliance decide that Fadia is the best target, even though she is in their alliance, they can spare the vote. But Amos tells Fadia about this, who goes to Emerson, Brad, and Ben with this info, and they tell them that they will vote with them for safety. They agree, and with this Emerson also tells them that June told the alliance that the Drake alliance would vote out the outcast if worst comes to worst, with this information, Fadia goes and blackmails Julie with it, saying that if she doesn’t give them their vote, she will get her eliminated. Julie agrees, and together they decide that Nick is their biggest threat, pulling a Borneo and completely forgetting in the heat of the moment that Neleh has won all three individual challenges. At tribal council, by a vote of 6-3, Nick, the tribe has spoken. Episode 10:June wins reward and takes Fadia with her. Ben wins the immunity challenge. Sanna and Neleh tell Fadia, Amos, and June that they will be voting for Brad. But they keep June and Amos afterward to tell them that they are really voting for Fadia. Amos obviously, and obliviously tells Fadia about this, who takes June (unwillingly) to the Morgan tribe, and tells them the situation. They agree, but under one condition, they have to vote Amos out. Fadia doesn’t want to, but if it means saving herself, then she will. Once again she “convinces” June to vote with them in exchange for not revealing the secret and painting a target on June’s back. At tribal council, by a vote of 5-3, Amos, the tribe has spoken. Episode 11:June wins her second reward challenge in a row, whilst Ben wins his second immunity in a row. June is approached by the Morgan tribe, and they tell her that they are planning on voting out Fadia in the next tribal. June happily agrees, but after thinking, if Fadia finds out, she will tell everyone about revealing her alliances’ information to the rival alliance, and she will be eliminated. Also, eliminating Fadia would mean that their alliance would be neck-and-neck in votes with the other alliance. Due to not sitting well with the rest of the castaways recently, the Drake alliance decides to vote for Emerson. At tribal council, by a vote of 4-3, Emerson, the tribe has spoken. Episode 12:Sanna, June, and Ben beat Brad, Fadia, and Neleh in the reward challenge. Ben wins immunity for the third time in a row. Brad and Ben plan on voting for June, and Fadia, whilst hesitant, decides to vote with them, as she is certain that her alliance is voting for her. Her suspicions are correct, June, Sanna, and Neleh are targeting Fadia, but they tell her they are voting for Brad, trying to cause a 3-2-1 vote. At tribal council, there is a tie between June and Fadia, and there must be a revote. The revote is two votes June and two votes Fadia. Meaning that for the first time ever in the history of Capy’s Survivor, there will be a rock draw. The host calls Neleh, Sanna, and Brad up to draw rocks, as Ben has immunity. He instructs them to flip over their rocks. Brad, the tribe has spoken. Episode 13:June shares her reward with Ben, hoping to gain his vote. Neleh just barely wins immunity over Ben, ending his streak. Despite her efforts, Ben and Fadia agree that they are voting June, and try to convince Sanna and Neleh. Afterward, they decide that they deny the offer, that Fadia is a much bigger threat than June in all aspects. At tribal council, by a vote of 3-2, Fadia, the tribe has spoken. Finale, Part 1:Ben wins his fourth immunity. Sanna and Neleh are planning on voting for June. But June and Ben are planning on voting for Neleh and hoping to cause a fire-making challenge, as they think June would beat Neleh. But June doesn’t think so and thinks it should be Sanna, and Jake doesn’t argue back, making June think that he agrees, when he is really just getting her eliminated. At tribal council, by a vote of 2-1-1, June, the tribe has spoken. Finale, Part 2:Neleh wins the final immunity. Knowing that she will win against Sanna, but not Ben, and she also has had a final two pact and a close friendship with Sanna all season, Neleh chooses Sanna to bring to the reunion with her. At tribal council, by a vote of 1-0, Ben, the tribe has spoken. The Reunion:At the Reunion, after Sanna and Neleh both state their cases. Neleh states that she won 5 challenges in all, whilst Sanna only won 2, and one of those was a group challenge. Also, stating that she also got a lot less blood on her hands than Sanna. Sanna retaliates with she could have won more challenges if she had not allied with Neleh, a challenge beast. She also said that the only reason she had blood on her hands was that Neleh relied on her to do all the dirty work. Congratulation, Neleh Brown, you are the winner of Capy’s Survivor: Pearl Islands! My Opinions:This was a similar situation to Marquesas, except with less flashy moves. Was an amazing cast, and a good season, but everyone relied on their alliances too much. Neleh and Sanna were a power duo and deserved to make it to the end. Neleh was definitely a deserving winner. Fadia was the evilest person on the planet. June and Fadia both made it surprisingly far, despite seeming to have their name on the block week in and week out. Ben was a challenge beast. River went too early, I think she could’ve been a real competitor. Despite starting out in a minority alliance, and then being just the two of them with a season full of giant alliances, I don’t even know how Neleh and Sanna survived. Ben’s move at the final four was genius. That’s all I have to say. Romeo would probably be the best pre-jury pick of this season (what I mean by that is the person on the pre-jury who I think would have done well if they went farther. Examples are Lexie in season 4, Nina in Season 5, and Mariangel in Season 6). I'm also happy about the first-ever rock draw!

While on the Tambaqui tribe is Aaron, Grey, Buck, Chris, Colin, Jake, Thomas, and Warren. The host informs them that they can go back to camp. At the Jamburu camp, Mariangel is already looking for people for her power alliance, that she plans on gaining the trust of and then booting in the end. She approaches Tiff and Cindy for their social prowess, as she sees them socializing with everyone. She doesn’t see anyone else that she could approach yet, but she wants to wait for the challenge. At the Tambaqui camp, Aaron quickly ally with Jake, as he is the son of Jamal from Australian Outback, and Aaron thinks he will be a good player because of this, he also joins forces with Warren and Grey, because they seem socially-active, and they seem like they would be challenge beasts. He finally approaches Chris, as he seems to have the mental and strategical power that the alliance needs. Thomas and Colin see this whole thing go down, and they ally with Buck, hoping for a swing vote from him. The Tambaqui tribe wins the immunity challenge, and that means the Jaburu tribe is going to the first tribal council of the season. Jay and Cindy find that they have a lot in common, and they bond. Mariangel also recruits Haven and Brandi after the challenge to join her alliance, as she sees them as the challenge beasts of the tribe. Darleen, Jay, and Sammi also ally and attempt to get swing votes to stay safe. Mariangel sees that Cindy and Jay are growing close, and doesn’t want Cindy to be their swing vote, and potentially cause a rock draw, so she suggests Jay should be the one to go home, as she had a weak performance in the challenge. Cindy is hesitant at first when she is thinking alone, but ultimately decides it is the right thing to do, as she doesn’t want to be Mariangel’s enemy number one right off the bat. Jay tells her alliance they should vote for Tiff, as she is a social threat, and probably won’t help them much in challenges anyways, her alliance agrees, and she approaches Cindy with the offer. She acts as if she accepts, but truthfully she has already made up her mind. At tribal council, by a vote of 5-3, Jay, the tribe has spoken. Episode 2:Tambaqui continue their winning streak by winning the reward challenge, but they get too confident and let the immunity slip through their grip, meaning they will be heading to the next tribal council. Sammie and Tiff have a minor fight over Sammie not helping out as much as she should have in the reward challenge, losing them fishing bait that could have easily caught them days worth of food. At the Tambaqui camp, things are a bit tenser, as they are trying to decide who their first tribemate to go home will be. Chris rubs the tribe the wrong way, when during their meal he dodges questions about him not participating in the challenge, even though he would have been good at it, and blaming everyone else for his actions. Despite this, the majority alliance is still planning on voting out Buck, as he is not good at challenges, you can’t trust him, and he is lazy. The minority alliance tries to convince the rest of the majority alliance that Chris is not trustworthy and should be the boot and that Buck can be voted out easily any other time, whereas Chris might win immunities. But they disagree saying that Chris could be an easy vote-out if it ever comes to that, and they need the extra vote, just in case someone decides to vote with the minority alliance. At tribal council, by a vote of 5-3, Buck, the tribe has spoken. Episode 3:Tambaqui once again win the reward challenge, winning themselves toiletries, but not learning from their mistakes might be their downfall, as they get too confident once again, and lose the immunity challenge to the Jaburu tribe, sending them to tribal for the second time in a row. At the Jaburu camp, Sammie is not sitting well with everyone, as she is acting like she is the queen, and that everyone serves her, and Mariangel is having none of it and makes sure her alliance knows that. At the Tambaqui camp, they are trying to decide who to boot. For some reason, Jake thinks his head might be on the line and doesn’t go to his alliances’ meet-up spot. Effectively leaving the alliance. Colt and Thomas approach him, stating that Chris needs to go, and alliance-less now, he agrees and tries to convince his old alliance (excluding Chris, of course), that Chris is a threat, and he is getting too comfortable, and he needs to go while we can get him out, but once again, Aaron is not having it and tells his alliance that Thomas is just as big of a threat as Chris and that he should be the one going home for being an opposing vote, and approaching Jake. At tribal council, by a vote of 4-3, Thomas, the tribe has spoken. Episode 4:The Tambaqui tribe, once again, win the reward. Effectively winning themselves a refrigerator stocked of Coca-Cola. Learning from their past mistakes, they don’t get too confident going into the immunity challenge, and win the immunity, meaning that Jaburu is going to their first tribal since Episode 1. Sammie is still acting like the queen of the world, and Mariangel wants everyone focused on the game, instead of focusing on being annoyed by Sammie. Also being annoyed with Sammie herself, she convinces her alliance that they are voting her out, which they all hastily agree with. At the Tambaqui camp, the only alliance left is slowly falling apart, thanks to Chris and his antics, but like previous seasons, they stay together to secure some votes. At tribal council, by a vote of 5-2, Sammie, the tribe has spoken. Episode 5:The host calls the teams over to the challenge space. He announces that there will be a tribe swap, but once again, they will be doing it differently. No choosing members, or platforms, and no choice to swap tribes. This season, the youngest member of each tribe, being Warren and Tiff, both 19, will be choosing the tribes. At the retreat, they both decide to be on the same tribe. Tiff wants Mariangel, as a close ally. While Warren chooses Aaron and Jake, because they are strong leaders, as well as Colin, as he can help them in other challenges. The host announces the new tribes. The Jaburu tribe consists of Aaron, Colin, Jake, Mariangel, Tiff, and Warren. While the Tambaqui tribe consists of Grey, Brandi, Chris, Cindy, Darleen, and Haven. At the Jaburu camp, things are getting off to a rough start, as Jake, Aaron, and Mariangel are all strong leaders, they are butting heads, and it doesn’t help that Mariangel is upset with Tiff that she was stupid enough to trust Warren and let him get the 4-2 advantage on the tribe. At the Tambaqui camp, Its a little more peaceful, Chris and Grey are worried about their numbers disadvantage, but that is about it. The Tambaqui tribe easily wins immunity, and the Jaburu tribe is going to the first swapped tribal. At the Jaburu camp, Tiff is in ruins, she tries to convince Warren to vote with her and Mariangel, but he said just to figure it out, she put them in this position. Warren then tells his alliance of guys to vote for Tiff, as she will be a social threat come merge, and she will be an easy target. As they were already a very weak alliance, due to the tribe swap, the alliance of four from the original Tambaqui tribe dissolves. At tribal council, by a vote of 4-2, Tiff, the tribe has spoken. Episode 6:Jaburu wins their first-ever reward challenges, winning themselves spices, fruits, and vegetables for them to bring back to camp and enjoy. But even on their role, Warren and Aaron have a different idea for the immunity challenge, one that no one in Survivor has done before. They are going through the immunity challenge, and vote out Mariangel. The Tambaqui wins the immunity thanks to the guys’ alliance not helping Mariangel in the challenge, but she did come surprisingly close to beating the other tribe. Mariangel tries to convince Jake and Aaron that Colin is more of a threat than she is, strategically (lies) and mentally. They act convinced, but she isn’t convinced. At tribal council, by a vote of 4-1, Mariangel, the tribe has spoken. Episode 7:The host calls the tribes over to the challenge area, he announces that the merge is happening. He also says his congratulations to Aaron, Grey, Brandi, Chris, Cindy, Colin, Darleen, Haven, Jake, and Warren for making it this far. A strong alliance reforms between Cindy, Haven, and Brandi, and they make a final three pact. They also have a weaker alliance with Darleen for votes. Aaron, Colin, Jake, and Warren have a medium-strength alliance, once again for votes. Chris and Grey also have a final two pact but are worried they are going to be early boots, as they aren’t part of a strong, big alliance. Then the original Tambaqui (the 6 guys) and the new Tambaqui (Brandi, Chris, Cindy, Darleen, Grey, and Haven) form alliances for backup votes if worst comes to worst. Brandi wins the immunity challenge. Chris and Grey get into a fight, and their worrying state from not being in a majority alliance isn’t helping the cause. Causing them to break up the alliance. They decide to vote out Aaron despite this, and they try to convince the girls that he is a threat and he should be voted out, but the girls think they are just speaking on behalf of the guys, and trying to trick them. They want to vote Warren out, and they tell this to Chris and Grey, but they weren’t on his tribe, so they don’t have a clue why. The guys finally grant everyone’s wish at the start of the game, and target Chris for being a lazy bum, and an easy boot. They approach the girls trying to get their vote, so it doesn’t cause a revote or a rock draw. But once again, the girls think its a trick, but Darleen thinks otherwise and doesn’t want a rock draw. At tribal council, by a vote of 5-3-2, Chris, the tribe has spoken. Episode 8:Aaron wins reward, and brings Darleen along on the reward, as both a thank you and an attempt to try to gain her trust. Cindy wins the immunity challenge. Taking into consideration what the girls told him yesterday, and knowing his ass is on the line, Grey is convinced that Warren needs to go home. Grey approaches the girls and says in exchange for his vote for the remainder of the season, they need to vote the guy’s alliance out first. He also says that all of them are more of a threat than him in some way or another. They agree and let him on his way. He approaches the guy’s alliance with the same offer, they also agree, but afterward, he approaches Jake and tells him Warren isn’t to be trusted, and he knows this from being on the swapped tribe with him. At tribal council, by a vote of 8-1, Warren, the tribe has spoken. Episode 9:Aaron once again wins the reward challenge, and brings Brandi along in an attempt to gain her trust. Aaron also wins the immunity challenge. The New Tambaqui alliance dissolves after Warren’s elimination, as he was the only one compelling it to stay a thing. Both the guys and the girls approach Grey, the girls say they are voting out Colin because he is a strategic threat. The guys say they want to force a revote and get Haven out because she is a social threat. At tribal council, there is a tie. Grey decides that he should just switch his vote, he knows the girls won’t vote him out yet, as he could be a swing vote if one of them goes home. At tribal council, by a vote of 4-4, and a revote of 4-2, Colin, the tribe has spoken. Episode 10:Haven wins the immunity with all she’s got, as she knows if she doesn’t she might be on the block. Grey and Jake have a major fight, but the cameras don’t show about what. The guys want to vote Cindy, as she is their biggest threat right now, and they convince Darleen that they will keep her from elimination if she votes with them. The girls are trying to figure out who to vote off. They aren’t going to vote of Grey, as he has shown he is their easiest swing vote if worst comes to worst. But Aaron is off the table for winning the trust of Darleen and Brandi. That leaves Jake, who is a psychical threat, and has been causing drama around camp, they approach Grey, and he seems convinced. But he knows no matter who he votes for, the opposite alliance will be forced to keep him in as a swing vote. At tribal council, by a vote of 4-3, Jake, the tribe has spoken. Episode 11:Aaron wins reward, and he gives up the reward so the rest of the tribe can see their loved ones, in the hope that he gains their trust. Brandi wins the immunity challenge. The girls decide on targeting Aaron, despite him letting them see his loved ones, Cindy convinces them that it was for this very reason, to try to avoid the vote. Grey attempts to convince Darleen and Brandi otherwise because he knew that Haven is too close with Cindy, and they already put some trust into him. But they say it just isn’t worth the risk. At tribal council, by a vote of 4-2, Aaron, the tribe has spoken. Episode 12:Darleen wins the reward, and brings Cindy along with her, in attempts to get into a final four pact with her and the other girls, and make up for all the times the guys approached her. Grey wins the immunity challenge. Now the girls are worried that he was faking being bad at challenges, and they just royally screwed up. Obviously, because of their close alliance, the girls decide to vote for Darleen. Darleen approaches both Grey and Brandi trying to explain Cindy can’t be trusted, but they know, either way, Cindy or Haven was going to prevail. At tribal council, by a vote of 4-1, Darleen, the tribe has spoken. Finale, Part 1:Grey wins immunity once again, and the girls are thinking they are screwed. Also, their final three pact is now void. Brandi convinces Grey to vote with her for Cindy, and try to force a deciding challenge. He agrees, saying that Brandi has a good chance of beating Cindy. At tribal council, there is a tie between Cindy and Brandi, and there has to be a revote. The revote is there is a deadlocked tie between Cindy and Brandi, meaning that Capy’s Survivor has to do their first-ever tiebreaker challenge. Cindy beats Brandi, and Brandi, the tribe has spoken. Finale, Part 2:Haven wins final immunity, and knowing she will easily win against both Cindy and Grey, as she has let everyone else get the blood on their hands. She chooses Cindy, as she is her ride or die. At tribal council, by a vote of 1-0, Grey, the tribe has spoken. The Reunion:After both Haven and Cindy state their cases, the jury vote. By a vote of 6-1, Haven Parks, you are the winner of Capy’s Survivor: The Amazon! The fan-favorite award goes to Brandi. My Opinion:Grey played a flawless game. If Cindy or himself had won the final immunity, he would have won the game. Him flipping the vote at the final 9 was way better than Adelyn’s vote flip a couple of seasons back. Him putting both alliances in a spot where they couldn’t evict him was genius. Warren also played a beautiful game, he somehow convinced Tiff to make a 4-2 tribe in his favor, became the first-ever person to throw a challenge to get someone evicted, and if Grey hadn’t flipped the vote, he would’ve gone far. Mariangel is once again a very good pre-jury vote. Haven and Cindy were a perfect duo, reminding me of J-Bay and Sherri from Marquesas. Overall, in my opinion, the best season so far. Lots of great potential villains as well, my favorite. Possible All-Stars:Haven, Cindy, Grey, Brandi, Aaron, Jake, Warren, and Mariangel. Leave your opinions about potential all-stars (or returnees), your favorites, and the season in general, or what I could change for future seasons!
2020.08.01 05:04 Huey_ReviewsIn-Depth Review: Dirty Mind
TL;DR ALERT Very few records in existence get me excited upon just hearing or seeing its name in text. And I really do mean very few, probably just a couple dozen out of the millions of records, EPs & live albums that exist have that affect on me. And it just so happens that the artist known as Prince has about 3 or 4 records that do that for me inside of that couple dozen: "Purple Rain" of course, which is the greatest pop music achievement ever. "1999", which is Purple Rain's freakier, artsier, sexier cousin. "Sign O' The Times" is one of the absolute few double disc records that I can confidently say has absolutely no filler and is a near master work in R&B, Rock, Soul & Pop from track 1 to track 16. And the album of the day, "Dirty Mind", which stands as one of the grittier, punkier, more vulgar & more raw records in Prince's lengthy discography. All of these albums have a very special place in my heart and at any given moment I could go on a 2 to 3 hour rant on why that is but rather than doing that today I figured I would focus on one record. A record that I see as one of the most lyrically boundary pushing albums ever. A record that while not as instrumentally ambitious as his other projects, shows off Prince's raw musicianship and spontaneity more than any other album of his from that time period probably ever did: "Dirty Mind" released in 1980. And I know those seem like some very ambitious claims but hell, we're all Prince fans here, so hear me out as to why I make them. The first point I want to make is mainly about how this record might just be one of the more lyrically influential of all time. But let me just say, I feel as if I can't exactly make this without first giving some context to this record and the lyrics of other records before it. We have to remember that the year was 1980 and "Dirty Mind"- a record so honest in its vulgarity that it's unlike anything you've ever heard before- has just been released. You've never heard anything this hot before, you've never heard a man get away with saying these things before on a record. Now back track four years to March 16th, 1976. It's not exactly breaking news to anyone that at this point in the 1970s, Marvin Gaye was making some of the most essential "baby-making" music ever to have been released for public consumption. As of a few years before he quite suddenly stopped asking "What's going on?" and started demanding "Let's get it on" in between one record & the next. "Let's Get It On" is one of the most famous albums- and songs- about sex ever made and it was a smash success to the highest of levels but on this particular date of March 16th, 1976, it had been three years since Marvin Gaye released that album and people were itching for more & understandably so, "Let's Get It On" was peak soul & funk music. At this time, Marvin resurfaced and dropped one of his most controversial works, the near-perfect sequel to "Let's Get It On", a quiet storm masterpiece known as "I Want You". A lot of people don't know this now because the lyrics seem so tame and vanilla for modern standards but "I Want You" got some pretty big backlash for its sexual themes despite the critical acclaim it received. This album was more vulgar than pop music had really ever been up until that point. This wasn't your average "Ain't No Mountain High Enough", "Stubborn Kind of Fellow" type shit, Marvin was really pushing the envelope in terms of what an artist (especially a black artist on Motown-Tamla Records) could say on their record during that time period. And all of a sudden, thanks to Marvin Gaye, you could get away with just about an inch or two more on the topic of sexuality. And when Prince dropled "Dirty Mind" just 4 years later... You could get away with just about anything involving the bedroom. Because at that time period there wasn't much you could say as a black artist that could possibly be dirtier than what this Prince guy- who was previously only really known for a very bubblegum "I Wanna Be Your Lover", which was played in every skate rink from Minneapolis to South Carolina- had dreamt up on his latest record. I mean just listen to what he is saying on this album and you don't even have to listen all that closely. The way Prince approaches sex on this album was completely new at the time. It checked all the boxes of sexuality: It was raw, it was bi-curious, it was intimate, it was dirty, it was vulgar & yet, it was still poetic. Prince managed to jump head first into the topic of sex without dipping his toes into complete sleaziness. In my opinion, even though it wasn't a complete smash success that everyone was rushing to the store to purchase, this record marked the moment that sex in mainstream pop music was no longer "I want you to want me, just like I want you" and became "Head". Front to back this record was an intimate sexual experience. Even before you listened to it you were being seduced just by the album sleeve alone which sports the iconic image of Prince wearing a trench coat and a very feminine pair of underwear which sort of summed up that entire era of Prince better than even a lot of his songs did: A perfect meeting of the masculine & the feminine. Just looking at that album cover, especially in that time period for people who weren't all that familiar with Prince, it raised so many questions that followed him for the rest of his career: Is he gay? Is he straight? Is he a woman? Is he a man? And that was an aura Prince embraced heavily in the 80s and it was such a genius chess move for both marketing & artistry that people are still copying it to this very day. And what better way was there to kick off that extremely influential, mysterious, pop image than a record like "Dirty Mind?"A record that not only set an all new standard for what could be said on the topic of intimacy but was also a genuinely fantastic, bold record with fantastic pop songwriting. And with that being said, it leads me to the songs themselves, which need to be looked at in a separate light other than just their influence. Because there's plenty of influential records out there in my opinion that don't showcase good songwriting, so I try not to get too caught up in influence (even though I just gushed about this record's influence for 50 paragraphs but whatever) but the songs themselves are brilliant. This record in particular showcases that Prince didn't really need fancy production, he didn't need the million dollar recording studio and he didn't need an incredible budget to make magical music. All he needed was a couple instruments, his voice and a microphone and boom, you were in for an experience. Because the majority of this record was made in Prince's bedroom (fitting) and cut in one single night. This is a RAW pop record to the highest degree. Which is an extremely rare thing, especially in the 1980s which was an era dominated by overproduction in popular music. And its one of those special albums that if you took the lyrics out completely you would still have an incredibly intimate, fun record. And I don't mean tbag in terms of how Prince was playing his instruments, I mean just how real it sounds. It sounds like he could've recorded and cut these tracks standing right next to you while eating pizza, watching soap operas and just hanging out in between some jam sessions. It's just such a genuine, well-flowing, spontaneous record, which is what gives it the majority of its appeal in my honest opinion. But with all of that being said, this record is still a hard pill for some to swallow. It definitely was for me when I first heard it because it's not an introductory to Prince. This is a record that you discover a bit more down the line when diving into Prince's discography. Chances are that most people familiar with Prince, much like myself, listened to "Purple Rain" the album for the first time and became a Prince fan. So when you hear this record after hearing something as massive & thematic as a "Purple Rain" or a "1999", it can confuse you. I heard this record only two weeks after falling in love with "Purple Rain", which is the absolute monarch of Prince production and songwriting. It's a layered, colorful record with a lot of personality that just bleeds through each instrument. So when I skipped "1999", which would have made an easier transition, and jumped right into "Dirty Mind"... I felt very underwhelmed. I didn't understand why critics hailed this thing the way they did. It wasn't as massive in sound as "Purple Rain", it wasn't as consistent as "Purple Rain", it wasn't as lush as "Purple Rain", it wasn't as big of a statement as "Purple Rain" was & most of all... It didn't have a song like "Purple Rain" on it! But then I revisited it about a year later and did some research on what went into the making of this record and found that Prince was inspired by a lot of music that I personally love while making this record. Late 70s synthpop guys like Gary Numan, punk rockers like The Clash and of course your typical funk and soul influences that Prince usually sought after: Al Green, Sly Stone, etc. And relistening to the record I heard a lot of those influences that I didn't necessarily catch before. And overtime as I began peeling back the layers of this album I came to peace with the fact that this album isn't "Purple Rain" or "1999" or even "Sign O' The Times" and... I ended up actually loving it even more after that for what it represented on its own: A raw declaration of sexual, musical and spiritual independence. Because at this point Prince was sort of one foot in the underground and one foot in the mainstream. Yeah, "I Wanna Be Your Lover" was a huge song but Prince and The Revolution were still mostly seen as an underground act in Minneapolis. And this isn't a rare position for artists to be in, that sort of place where you're halfway in the door of the mainstream but still trying to keep your underground following without alienating it. And with every artist that's ever been in this position while on a big label like Warner Bros. or whatever, they always have to answer for which one they want: Do you want the mainstream radio success or do you want to keep playing the clubs while travelling in a van with 4 other smelly band members who are a little too high & a little underbathed? But in typical Prince fashion... He chose both on this album. Just look at the structuring of these songs, especially the lead singles like the title track and "When You Were Mine", they were pure pop hit potentials front to back, no debate. The girls would dance to it in a heartbeat if it came on in the club & the guys would love it for that reason. But then on the other side of the coin, they were produced and mixed like a punk album would be. They sounded like demos that Prince just released on vinyl. And that gives the record such personality, knowing that if he mixed these songs like he did "Little Red Corvette" they'd be the biggest hits ever but he chose rawness instead... That is the rarest of rare major label artist moves and it really shows where Prince's head was at during the point of this record: Compromise nothing but please both sides. He knew exactly what he was doing & exactly what he was going for, which was nothing more than a free, raw sexual expression that towed a perfect line. Moving on from that, let's get more in-depth about the sound of this record. To my ears, the bareness of the sound validates the rawness and the honesty of the lyrics completely. It's all so real and in the moment from the words to the performances. And that's what will always make this record great to me. Sure, I could go on all day about the songs themselves individually. "Dirty Mind" is probably the best Synth-Funk song ever recorded, "When You Were Mine" is a New Wave masterpiece, "Sister" is the freakiest, most disgusting song I've ever heard even by today's standards, etc., but I'm gonna stop there and just say if there are any newcomers on this subreddit looking to get into Prince, take your time with this record when you get here. There are a lot of new Prince fans- similar to how I was- who don't really understand this record that much and kind of cast it aside after hearing Prince's bigger albums. But trust me, this is a great record and personally my 2nd favorite Prince album behind Purple Rain. I get that its a little spacey and it's a little bare and doesn't have that knock that Prince's most essential works do, but please just know that the rawness here actually works wonders and improves the record more than expensive production choices ever could. I guess to end this review I'm going to say that this album is one of the most important ever. The influence that its had on artists all across the board is absolutely undeniable. I can't imagine the modern state of R&B and pop music if this record hadn't said the things that it said. Because even if those artists didn't specifically sit down and listen to "Dirty Mind" and take specific notes from it, they took notes from someone who did. "Dirty Mind" was the true start of Prince's most iconic era, which is why I credit "Dirty Mind" with being more of a massive secondhand influence that's touched a lot of artists and images and ideas, even if they didn't realize it. Prince did a lot of "firsts" here that really set the stage for pop music and R&B to come. I don't like numerical ratings, I think they're overrated but this is a pretty long review so: tl;dr - 10/10. Amazing, influential album that broke more lyrical barriers than most albums have. Should I review more Prince albums?
2020.07.29 09:20 MoralCoitusMy story with accusations, and my conclusion.
I hate having to explain this over and over again, yet I have the contradictory need to share in some capacity. Excuse my dramatic phrasing and typos Im 18, to start this off, and I’ve been accused of pedophelia, trans-fetishism, and “abuse”. I’m more fortunate than most because I haven’t had to go to court yet, though I have threatened legal action under slander and intent to cause emotional stress. While that did help in some capacity, I regret it. My corroding mental health played a bigger factor in this than I’d like. I’ve had a history of mental illness since birth, and was medicated since I was four. I’ve been in and out of facilities including therapeutic boarding school and mental hospitals for depression, suicidal ideation, manic tendencies, etc. Now I dont want pity for this, I’m just laying the ground for how things would just go to hell later. I have SHIT taste in partners apparently, It started a year and half ago maybe. I broke up with a girl I had a lot of feelings for because I was incredibly stress the fuck put because I was almost held back a grade. During our relationship we had a lot of kinky interactions, and had dealings with CNC. She later would accuse me of “technical sexual abuse” and spread that around senior year. Though, we had a talk about it through a mutual friend, and ended up getting back together (really bad idea, I know) and things were good. Though, towards the end, a bunch of shit came up because of her friends (so I thought) and lead to a lot of pressure on things. Apparently because of what she had told them, her friends hated me. I was cool with that, but she wasnt, so I suggested we handle it maturely and all talk about it. She said no. I found out later apparently that during our relationship(s) she was telling people personal shit I didn’t want people knowing. About our sex life, and about me as a person (the false abuse stuff included). She didnt want to be caught in the lie apparently, so she prevented me from doing literally anything about it. When she broke up with me, a lot of different things came to a peak in my life and something had to break, and as a result I had a nervous breakdown. I wrote a shitty record and indulged in a bunch of obsessive tendencies I shouldnt have. She ended up trying the same rumors again, and because of how everything was (including academic issues and family issues) I dropped out of high school. That was the first accusational issue. During the same summer I broke up with her, I ended up going full fuckboy and flirting with a lot of girls (I was sixteen or recently 17) one of which was a girl named, well, for the sake of the story her name was E. We had a brief flirty interaction where I asked for nudes (never sent any, and never received any) and she said no, and I thought that was the end of it. A year or so later I found out she was 12-14 and was VERY pissed. We still had contact in groupchats and I started calling her out when she’d say shit like “ohHhH I want dick” and id call her a child. She looked a lot older than she was, and apparently a friend of mine at the time had also flirted with her. Though he didnt want trouble, which lands him against me. Eventually I would end up dating a trans man (im bi) and we would have a rocky relationship. It was my first gay relationship and things were... confusing. During it, his friends hated us fating because they didnt like me. They said I was dating him because he was fem-bodied and not because I viewed him as a man. We had sexual interactions a couple times, and I did my best to make sure things were comfortable. Though, eventually the relationship grew sour and I broke up with him. I fully viewed him as a man in our relationship. Now, eventually I started losing faith in my friend group (seems unrelated, but trust me) and began calling several of them out for shit I didnt like. Whether it be narcissistic self diagnoses, or other things. Over time, I lost a few of them because of that, and they began to harbor hostile grudges towards me (at least Thats how it seemed). I began to focus on the group of friends I went to shows with, and the same thing happened. As a result I got cut off from them. Now this was a result of me being a perfectionist, but also my poor choice of friends. All of this coming to a peak, people began to try and cancel me in our friend group. It started by calling me a “trans-festishist” because I asked my boyfriend for anal. He had apparently told them that he was uncomfortable at the time or something, but he gave me no indication of that. Saying that when he got back from his state we could do it. Then the girl I asked for nudes got involved and it became “pedo” as well. Shit broke down very quickly and I struggled to defend myself on instagram, my mental health and character flaws making it hard to react well. No one really prepared you for all... this shit. I had my second nervous breakdown at this time and began to experience agoraphobia, stress induced hallucinations, extreme paranoia, etc. This is what I struggle with today. There was never any screenshots being shared, they never even bothered to try and fabricate proof. The only ones I saw shared proved what I’ve already said. Eventually it went from half-truths to lies, and I deleted social media. They would rarely post anything to their stories (I assume because of the legal threat) but in the few occasions they did I got screenshots. Instead they resorted to dming everyone they knew was a friend of mine or followed me. Destroying my social reputation. We were all in the punk scene, and everyone is so vapid that they would rather worry about their own reputation than the truth. So, since they had the majority, they won. Im sorry if this is confusing and kind of screwy, I still struggle to explain it myself. In the months since deleting my Instagram I’ve spent long amount of time silent, fasting, and meditating (hippie shit, ik) and found a mindset that works for me. I used to he obsessed with not caring what other people thought of me, and ended up doing the opposite. Ive realized that it’s less about “I don’t care” and more about “it doesn’t matter.” Because the truth I know and understand is more powerful than any lie (excuse my dramatic phrasing). I accept that my reputation may be ruined, and that things are rough. Pain is to be accepted, not hidden or run from though. I continue to focus on my art, and will continue till that compulsion dies. Thanks for reading if you did, I know its a lot ☮️
2020.07.26 12:19 tcpower2Few gay mysteries in the world
Hey guys! First time poster here but just wanted to share a love (?) story from my time abroad. I’m finishing my masters in Dublin (originally from the States) and the entire time I’ve been here I’ve had a friend who I suspected was more than that. It was a classic game of “gay or european” and I had been a long time player of it (I lived in Spain for two years). As our friendship progressed people kept asking me if he was gay or bi; I had been in situations and friendships where I suspected it myself but never had other people approach me about it. I would go back and forth with outwardly asking him but decided it wasn’t my place (and I had been in that situation before I was out and know it’s not always comfortable). There’s a lot of things that make me think it was more than friends but at the same time they come from cultural differences. We’ve had this history of going back and forth where it feels like just lads hanging out and then something really intimate or romantic will happen and it’ll scream “this is a date.” He knows I’m gay too and has lived through my dating journey of Dublin with me as I would tell him about dates and then the (now ex) boyfriend I had. I do consider him a good friend and sort of dropped the topic for awhile (again I didn’t really consider it any of my business and my feelings were never strong enough to actually ask him). As Ireland started opening up from lockdown we started hanging out again. It was like nothing changed but did churn up a lot of emotions again. I’m leaving Dublin in a week to go back home. Yesterday I saw him for the last time since he’ll be gone all this week. We went to the mountains and he took me to all his favorite scenic spots. We listened to rock music from the UK punk scene in the 70s while we dodged sheep on country roads. It was a beautiful day (even though it was cold and rainy, but that’s just irish summers) and it took my mind off the stresses and anxieties of leaving. It was a great way to say goodbye to a friend and spend time with someone you care about. Now, as I’m packing up and getting ready to leave I’m reflecting and thinking about all the friendships and relationships I made here. With him, I don’t think I’ll ever ask. Not because I think it would ruin our friendship, but because the mystery or question is what made it unique. Who knows what will happen as we go our separate ways. We will stay in touch but im not sure when I’ll get back to Europe or if he will come to America like he planned to do before covid. There is so much uncertainty and fear in the unknown world, but this unknown is filled with love, friendship, and nostalgia. My mom always says that there’s so few mysteries and surprises left in the world; I guess not everything is worth knowing and there is an indescribable beauty in that. Just wanted to share this as I’m processing a lot of changes going. Happy to hear other people’s stories and experiences!
