2020.09.25 14:02 LordChozo Hindsight is 2020: #6 - Entangled

from A Trick of the Tail, 1976
Listen to it here!
I have sleep apnea. If you haven’t heard of this condition, it essentially means your body occasionally stops breathing altogether during sleep, causing you to “wake up” so you can begin breathing again. These stops and starts usually aren’t noticed consciously, but can be characterized by things like tossing and turning, and of course snoring. My case is relatively mild as these things go, but it is legitimate sleep apnea all the same. This isn’t mere assumption either; I’ve actually done a sleep study at a center and been officially diagnosed.
That was a particularly strange night, as I recall. For one thing, it was the first night I’d ever spent away from my wife since we had been wed a couple years earlier: a sweet but disappointing footnote in our marital history. But mainly it was the fact that my face had to be covered in sensors, which were affixed with a kind of thick paste substance. I had wires and goop all over, was laid down on a fairly spartan cot with a pillow of questionable make, surrounded by lights turned low but not all the way off, with a live camera watching every movement and listening to every sound I made. I always sleep on my side; they told me I had to lay on my back, lest the sensors not work properly. “What if I have to go to the bathroom?” “Well, you’ll need to unplug all these wires, take these monitors with you, do what you need to do, then come back in and we’ll hook you up again.”
I was fairly confident I suffered from sleep apnea going into that study, but was there ever any doubt I’d come out of it with a firm diagnosis? How could anyone get their best sleep under conditions like that? I probably managed a combined three hours that night, which was enough for them to tell me I officially had a problem. They recommended I order a CPAP machine, which is a device that you hook onto your face before bed every night that blows air into your throat so you don’t wake up due to temporary airway collapse. It is not a cure; it is a solution that only works if you are actively using it, and therefore a chronic sufferer of sleep apnea who opts for this treatment method must use it every night for the rest of his or her life. If you think this sounds uncomfortable and onerous, you’re not alone: half of all CPAP users quit within the first year of using the device because for them the solution to the apnea proves worse than the apnea itself.
I also wasn’t too keen on sticking a reversed vacuum onto my face every night, so I talked to my dentist, who recommended a certain oral appliance that he was confident would be effective for a condition as mild as mine. But then we hit a snag of insurance coverage, and that dragged on, and eventually the matter was forgotten entirely. It’s now years later and I still haven’t followed up on either of these potential options. I probably should, but my reality just kind of is what it is, you know what I mean? I am always tired. Like anyone, a particularly bad night can send me into deeper fatigue, but I don’t have a “well-rested” baseline. Not really. It’s just varying levels of functional. But see, that’s all I know. It’s all I’ve ever known. I can’t remember ever feeling one hundred percent, fully energized in a healthy way like some people talk about, so I can’t miss it. My body’s adapted to these energy levels on a permanent basis; I’ll yawn all day but I’ll make it through, no worries.
But it does mean that when I get exhausted, I get really exhausted. Some nights I just crash hard, no matter what I’d rather be doing. I’m always tired, but if I tell you I’m feeling tired, I’m probably almost gone. And there are activities that prove especially draining. Not physical ones, surprisingly; exercise doesn’t wear me down that much. It’s the mental side of things that gets me. A day at the office juggling five different meetings for five different clients on five different subjects? That kind of rapid gear switching is a recipe for complete burnout when I finish the day. Writing a giant Reddit post about “Heathaze” with everything that act entails? Man, that’s exhausting work. Coming back to the computer a few hours later to write one for “Entangled” too? I don’t know how I can summon the mental energy to pull that off.
So I get what Steve Hackett means when he says that after writing and recording his first solo album Voyage of the Acolyte, he was totally spent.
Steve: My first memory [of the Trick of the Tail writing sessions] was of day one of rehearsal, of being very tired. As if I'd just given birth once and I was required to come up with another baby very quickly! 1
Creating things is hard, man. Whatever your art, whatever your method, it’s never easy to make something out of nothing. Sometimes you’re flush with ideas, but even then you’ve got to deal with refining them, assembling them, filling in any gaps, and so forth. That’s why when you hear songwriters talking about how easy a song was to write, it’s almost always a surprise to them. They know their own talent and expertise, so why should they be shocked that this song came together so well? Because that’s not normal. Usually the ideas are more scattered and take something else to fully form.
Steve: What I used to do was probably throw in a few riffs and licks rather than whole songs. Although there was “Entangled” and there was “Los Endos” and the outro of “Dance on a Volcano”, those sort of things, you know. Sort of kick in with those ideas. 2
This is even true for Tony Banks, who was working just as hard at writing songs as Steve, but didn’t have a solo album outlet siphoning them off. As a result…
Tony: I came in [to the Trick of the Tail sessions] perhaps with the most complete songs. Mike came in with sections, as did Steve, and as it happened the bits we used to sort of finish them off were my bits, so I ended up being credited on every track on this album. Which was sort of quite funny. 2
So there’s Steve, mentally and creatively fatigued, doing his best to chip in with little fragments that the band might be able to make something out of. Or really anything that might come to mind at all. Perhaps drawing on this kind of lethargy, he conjures up an acoustic bit in F# minor. It’s just a riff, played at an very languid speed. I doubt he was sitting there with a metronome, but if he were he’d find that his riff clocked in at about 75 beats per minute, or BPM. This happens to fall right in the normal range for resting - or even sleeping - heartrates for human adults. Breathe in, breathe out. Drift a little, riff a little. It was tranquil, it was lovely, and it caught Tony’s ears.
Tony: Steve had come in with this really nice sort of guitar bit, and it happened to be in 3/4. And I had this chorus that I had that was sort of hanging around; I hadn’t got any home for it. Which was in 3/4 as well. So we tried the two together and it worked really well. 2
See, Steve’s bit, though very pretty, didn’t really do much of anything. He’d kind of loop the riff, chime a little around the scale, and...then what? The creative juices were spent. But that’s the beauty of being in a band setting with multiple writers; others can pick up the slack.
Tony: What Steve had written didn’t really have a chorus. It needed something to kind of lead you to it. So this sort of “If we can help you we will,” that bit, I had this sort of bit I had originally written on the piano in fact, and then transferred it to guitar. And with the voice then singing what the piano used to play, which was kind of like where the chords change. It produced quite a nice little harmony piece I think. 2
“Yeah Steve, let’s mash this thing up against my bit like the good ol’ Trespass days...well, trust me, they were the good ol’ days. Oh, and, pick it up a little will you? You sound half asleep over there.”
Steve: Sped up guitar on the introduction; I was playing at half speed. And then it gets joined by Mike and Tony. Very sort of typical Genesis feel on this one. Guitars chiming away. 3
Now running a much brisker 150 BPM after doubling the tempo, the song maintains its sleepy feel but gains an all-important lilt that will allow its melodies to really come alive. It’s Steve and Tony, just duct taping their ideas together. Hey, it worked for “Hairless Heart”, right? Let’s give it the ol’ fusion dance one more time. But wait a minute, this one has voice in the arrangement. That means lyrics, right? Who’s going to take those? Steve, got any ideas? Steve? Steve, wake up. I need to know if you STEVE, wake up please. Do you have any ideas for the lyrics?
Steve: “Freudian slumber”...I was thinking about a psychiatrist at the time hypnotizing a patient and taking him back into a world of troubling dreams. Phil Collins at the time, I think with the “over the rooftops and houses” thing, he said he thought it had a Mary Poppins feel, maybe a sort of chim-chimney-cheroo thing. But I think it was dealing with sort of deeper issues than that. The lyrics [are] basically mine. What sounds like the chorus is really Tony Banks’ [music], but nonetheless it’s my lyric that wraps the whole thing together. 3
Hypnotic music this is, so why not try to actually hypnotize someone in the words? Calm, soothing descriptions of dreamy visions, all unclear but not unpleasant. Images to replace the unwanted subconscious intrusions that plague him when his eyes are closed. Fading awareness melting into the light “ahs” of multi-tracked Phil, sending you off to rest your weary bones. Then a turn in the chorus from minor to major; a conversation with the professionals who will solve all your sleep problems. Don’t worry, we do this all the time. Just try to sleep in this quiet room; we’ll play some light music to help you. Let yourself drift away.
Steve: Tony and I enjoyed writing "Entangled", exploring the other-worldly atmosphere of the mind floating free beyond the world of harsh reality. 4
Tony: I think “Entangled” is one of my favorite songs on the album. It makes for a very strong combination with the lyric written by Steve, which I think works really well as well. 2
If “Entangled” stopped there, after two verses and two choruses, it would be a great song. It’s a song about sleep and dreams - moreso even than the later effort literally called “Dreaming While You Sleep” - and it sounds sleepy and dreamy through and through. But it doesn’t stop there. Not at all.
Steve: And then, you know, it floats off into something much bigger toward the end. 3
Tony: “Entangled” was more just a chord sequence that I was playing and that end bit was Mike’s actually, and we just used it. We were blues-ing on it and playing chords against the chords and seeing what I could get away with, which was something I have always liked to do. 5
This is an interesting admission here, since Mike doesn’t have a writing credit on the song. I can only guess that Tony was improvising with Mike, heard him play something, then said “Yeah, do that, in this way,” so that Mike was more the inspiration rather than a full writer. But it is curious. Regardless, after this serene song about trying to get rid of troubling dreams, the song ends with a pair of jokes. The first, of course, is the line about being presented the bill. Just a playful little wide-eyed moment before the end. That’s the obvious one. But the bigger joke is the precursor to that, “You’ll have no trouble…” This guy goes into a clinic to get hypnotized so his troubling dreams can be dismissed away, then goes to sleep in the end and we get this swirling, churning combination of keyboard, guitar, bass pedals, and Mellotron choir. In other words, troubling dreams. It didn’t work! The doctor was a quack all along!
A sterile sleep clinic is basically the worst place on earth to sleep, and planting images into the head of a patient struggling to expel images is basically the worst way to treat insomnia. I’d say these are things “Entangled” taught me, but I know these truths viscerally through my own life experience. It seems that perhaps Steve Hackett knew them too.
“Entangled” is the perfect song to get lost in. It’s the blissful union of two tremendous progressive songwriters, of words to music, and of conveyed mood to receptive listener. Have you ever just closed your eyes, laid down, and listened to this track? Whenever I do, I inevitably feel myself beginning to float away. Without fail the song ends before I fully fall asleep, being only six and a half minutes long, but the effect remains profound. It’s a soporific of synths, a sedative of strings, an anesthetic of auditory pleasure. Genesis may have other songs that are more complex and involved compositionally, but for my money they don’t have any that are more atmospheric.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to get to bed.
Let’s hear it from the band!
Tony: Probably my favorite track on that album, ending with a great cathedral-type feeling. The ARP Pro Solo[ist] synthesizer I was using had a touch sensitive keyboard and if you pressed a key hard you got this vibrato, and could produce this marvelous high note that sounded like some wild cartoon soprano female. 6
Mike: I think compared to some albums A Trick of the Tail is very consistent. And because of its very high standard it’s difficult picking out any one track [as a favorite]. 7
Steve: Psychiatrists and couches and a guy being hypnotized. Many years later, after I’d been playing thousands of shows, I hit a reef and I started to get stage fright after I’d played with an orchestra live. And I saw a psychiatrist myself, who gave me some hypnotherapy. And I didn’t realize that I was actually very successfully hypnotized, and the more this guy talked about positives, and about how good I was at what I was doing, I started weeping openly in front of [him]. And I said, “Well that must be very unusual.” And he said, “Actually, it’s very common. It’s because when you’re hypnotized, you don’t have the usual emotional blocks.” Because I don’t normally burst into tears in front of complete strangers. But I remember Terry Jones of Monty Python doing exactly the same when he was hypnotized on TV. Anyway, I hope you still love the song; I do. 3

https://medium.com/@36toesproductions/gy%C3%B6rgy-p%C3%A1lfis-taxadermia-181a1f574dc8?sk=6104aa1afa93f3e7ac4c6c0c5ac22fb1
After you recover from the shock of the opening scene you realize you will need to recalibrate your surrealism scale if you are going to get through György Pálfi’s Taxadermia. This isn’t going to just be weird or dreamlike, watching this film is going to take some fortitude, otherwise, how would you account for an opening scene where a man in a grimy, little shack, masturbates until, with a triumphant yell, he shoots a plume of fire out his penis.
Taxidermia is both beautiful and nauseating. It's a film of extremes that swings wildly in many directions. The camera reflects this in its movements. Suddenly the camera will start traveling in the most improbable, or even impossible directions. It passes through walls or under people, spinning in an impossible space. Its as though the screen we are watching is falling victim to the surrealism it is depicting.
There is a mind-bending scene where the floor of a room becomes something like a panel in a revolving door. It spins, and each time it flips over there is something new on the other side. We watch the changing sets and lose our orientation which turns the movie itself into a surreal object.
Pálfi made Taxidermia in 2006 in Hungary. I am sure that there is an entire layer of this film that I do not fully understand due to my limited knowledge of Hungarian history and politics. However, the film reaches much further than just a political allegory or parody. The primary engine of the film is the human body. Not just the shape of our physique but the blood, shit, vomit, semen, sweat, guts, and viscera of our existence. There’s sex and death and competitive eating.
The film centers around three men, each the son of the former. The first is Morosgovanyi, a libidinal, Caliban-like, perpetual masturbator. He’s the one whose penis shoots fire. He will hump anything, a hole in the wall, a pile of butchered pig parts, anywhere his member will fit. There are no cutaways or carefully cropped frames we see his penis plunge in and out of a hole in a shed until a rooster comes along and pecks it. A cock attacked by a cock.
When he is frantically humping the pig parts he fantasizes that it is an enormous corpulent woman screaming obscene instructions and encouragement. The editing flashes between the pig flesh, human flesh, butchery, fornication, masturbation, and close-ups of things that might be any of the above until you’re nauseous, confused, and ready to pass out.
Psychologist Harry Stack Sullivan once wrote about the boundaries we erect to differentiate between what he termed “the me” and the “not me.” Sullivan posed a simple experiment. Spit into a glass. Pause a moment, and then drink it back down. Many would recoil at the idea but Sullivan asks us to consider how arbitrary our reaction is. When the saliva is in your mouth it doesn’t bother you, but just a second later it is repulsive.
In Taxidermia, we are faced with all of our mortal productions. It's up to us to gauge our reactions. I giant mass of innards is both a repulsive horror, but as it steams in the cold it is also fascinating and even beautiful.
The U.S. Military has a division that weaponizes horrible smells. In their research, they found that the key to a truly intolerable stink is that it must have pleasant and attractive elements. It’s as if it has to be a bait and switch. You need to be intrigued or aroused before the hammer comes down.
Surrealist Merit Oppenhiem’s Fur-lined Teacup from 1936 plays with this dynamic as well. It is discordant and uncomfortable but it is also sexy and evocative. Similarly, in Taxedermia, there is a scene where two people are huddled outside in the snow. We watch their interaction, but it isn’t until halfway through the scene that we notice that the snowflakes falling around them are little white feathers. The accumulation on the ground, on their coats, and in their hair isn’t the pure white crystals we thought they were, they are something corporal and dirty.
Morosgovanyi’s son is Kalman an enormous hulk of a man born with a pigtail that we watch Morosgovanyi cut off in close-up while the baby Kalman wails. Morosgovanyi’s world was that of the peasants. A farm filled with mud and shit. Morosgovanyi’s son inhabits a bourgeois world of Soviet-style progress. To emphasize the irony of Soviet culture Kalman is a competitive eater. A communist country obsessed with production and efficiency stages a grotesque display of conspicuous consumption. We are treated to several scenes of Kalman methodically gorging himself as well as expelling such copious amounts of vomit that even Monty Pythons Mr. Creosote would cringe. The competitions are conducted with Soviet Flags and dancing girls. It's like some psychotic pageant. They eat giant gelatinous blocks of horse sausage or gallons of caviar out of a red trough-shaped like a Soviet star.
Kalman gets married and has a son, Balatony. When Balatony grows up he becomes a taxidermist. Just in case there is some bit of bloody, fatty, goo that Pálfi missed in the first two-thirds of the film, he manages to cover all his morbid bases in this last third. Even so, there is still a kind of poetic beauty in the madness. We watch Balatony prepare an orangutan for stuffing. It's disgusting and brutal but also compelling. Instead of flashing us a shockingly gory moment and leaving us to imagine the rest, the camera watches intently as Balatony separates the skin from the fat and facia. It gives us time to get used to what we are seeing and examine it.
Balatony is a very creepy and completely miserable man. When he is not stuffing animal carcasses he must administer to his aging father’s needs. Kalman has grown so fat he can no longer move. The relationship between the two men and what transpires in the last third of the film is truly jarring and bizarre. Some things are better off left to the viewer to discover on their own, but the father being immobilized by excessive consumption, and the son being enslaved to an ungrateful beast who longs only for its past glory sets up abundant metaphors about capitalism, communism, and the masses of people caught in-between.
Taxidermia uses the human body as its arena. It is the vehicle for discussing our motivations, our excesses, our attempts at control, our relationship to society, and the state. In his book Discipline and Punish, Foucault tracks the changing relationship between the body and the state. A relationship that begins as corporal, where punishment is meted out physically on the body, but changes to something more insidious where the state targets our minds instead of our bodies.
Public hangings and floggings made obvious the power dynamic of the state and its ability to control behavior through force. Foucault compares this to the modern age and the rise of the surveillance state where the power dynamic between the individual and the state is hidden by an internalized coercion. By imagining the eyes of our neighbors and coworkers upon us, by raising the specter of Big Brother the blunt violence of the past is replaced with the more insidious hegemony of a state-sponsored super-ego that sounds like our own voice.
Taxidermia depicts this dynamic but reminds us that the mind can not be separated from the body. The brain is an organ like any other. No matter how abstract our thoughts may be we are still bound by our material existence. Our body is what anchors us to reality like a boat with its anchor down and its engines spinning. We aspire to become many things but we are always still flesh and blood and vomit, and semen, and sweat, and urine, and tears, and all the other things we produce and either accept or reject.
Marx focused on humans as producers of objects. He wrote about factories and the means of production but our bodies are already in a constant state of production and consumption. All life must destroy life in order to maintain itself and through that destruction turn the life consumed into waste. Life eats life and shits out waste which is then eaten by other life.
To make life more palatable we try not to think in these terms. We essentially hide the truth away and sniff fine wine seeking out the notes of oak or pear instead of slurping down the rotten juice of dead grapes in order to feel the queasy joy brought on by having ingested poison. So too the state prefers its own illusions of humanity and egalitarian justice and masks its poison in rarefied ideals.

A relationship that begins as corporal, where punishment is meted out physically on the body, but changes to something more insidious where the state targets our minds instead of our bodies.
Public hangings and floggings made obvious the power dynamic of the state and its ability to control behavior through force. Foucault compares this to the modern age and the rise of the surveillance state where the power dynamic between the individual and the state is hidden by an internalized coercion. By imagining the eyes of our neighbors and coworkers upon us, by raising the specter of Big Brother the blunt violence of the past is replaced with the more insidious hegemony of a state-sponsored super-ego that sounds like our own voice.
Taxidermia depicts this dynamic but reminds us that the mind can not be separated from the body. The brain is an organ like any other. No matter how abstract our thoughts may be we are still bound by our material existence. Our body is what anchors us to reality like a boat with its anchor down and its engines spinning. We aspire to become many things but we are always still flesh and blood and vomit, and semen, and sweat, and urine, and tears, and all the other things we produce and either accept or reject.
Marx focused on humans as producers of objects. He wrote about factories and the means of production but our bodies are already in a constant state of production and consumption. All life must destroy life in order to maintain itself and through that destruction turn the life consumed into waste. Life eats life and shits out waste which is then eaten by other life.
To make life more palatable we try not to think in these terms. We essentially hide the truth away and sniff fine wine seeking out the notes of oak or pear instead of slurping down the rotten juice of dead grapes in order to feel the queasy joy brought on by having ingested poison. So too the state prefers its own illusions of humanity and egalitarian justice and masks its poison in rarefied ideals.

2020.09.22 16:16 ReelStats These are the statistical top 500 movies of all time, according to 23 different websites

Hey everyone, great to be back again. Some of you might remember a similar title from a post I made back in April, where I made a list of the top 250 movies with 13 sources, or a preview of this list I made last month.
I want to emphasize that this is NOT an official ranking nor my personal ranking; it is just a statistical and, personally, interesting look at 500 amazing movies. These rankings reflect the opinions of thousands of critics and millions of people around the world. And I am glad that this list is able to cover a wide range of genres, decades, and countries. So before I get bombarded with "Why isn't X on here?" or "How is X above Y?" comments, I wanted to clear that up.
I sourced my data from Sight & Sound (both critic and director lists), TSPDT, iCheckMovies, 11 domestic websites (Rotten Tomatoes, Metacritic, IMDb, Letterboxd, TMDb, Trakt, Blu-Ray, MovieLens, RateYourMusic, Criticker, and Critics Choice), and 9 international audience sites (FilmAffinity, Douban, Naver, MUBI, Filmweb, Kinopoisk, CSFD, Moviemeter, and Senscritique). This balance of domestic/international ratings made the list more well-rounded and internationally representative (sites from Spain, China, Korea, Poland, Russia, Czech Republic, Netherlands, and France).
As for my algorithm, I weighted websites according to both their Alexa ranking and their number of votes compared to other sites. For example, since The Godfather has hundreds of thousands of votes on Letterboxd but only a couple thousand on Metacritic, Letterboxd would be weighted more heavily. After obtaining the weighted averages, I then added the movie's iCheckMovies' favs/checks ratio and TSPDT ranking, if applicable. Regarding TSPDT, I included the top 2000 movies; as an example of my calculations, Rear Window's ranking of #41 would add (2000-41)/2000=0.9795 points to its weighted average. I removed movies that had <7-8K votes on IMDb, as these mostly had low ratings and numbers of votes across different sites as well. For both Sight & Sound lists, I added between 0.5 and 1 point to a movie's score based on its ranking, which I thought was an adequate reflection of how difficult it is to be included on these lists. As examples, a #21 movie would have 0.9 points added while a #63 would have 0.69 points.
So without further ado, the statistical top 500 movies ever made. I separated the scores into overall, critics, domestic, and international columns to make comparisons easier. This list on Letterboxd.

2020.08.31 01:13 SandelzAtSea Did Terry Gilliam co-direct Monty Python’s The Meaning of Life?

Hi everyone,
I’m about to watch all of Terry Gilliam’s movies and I’ve found conflicting sources concerning his role on The Meaning of Life. Does anyone know if he was involved in directing the movie? Or was it just Terry Jones? Thanks!

2020.08.29 13:41 Chi1dishAlbino 🎥Movie Night🍿 - The Meaning Of Life (1983)

“The comedy team takes a look at life in all of its stages in their own uniquely silly way.” - IMDb
Monty Python’s classic movie about the meaning of life features several skits and songs, and can be found on Netflix - although is rather inappropriate, so be warned

2020.08.29 04:14 Nature_Freak69 Quite a few things from different subreddits I want to rant about.

So there have been some issues with some subreddits I'm a part of, and they don't seem to get any better either, so.....
Conservative: I thought this would be a subreddit for center center-right people like myself, where civil discussions, thoughts on the current political climate, etc could happen, and that's the way it was for a while. However, it became hyperpolarized as a result of Reddit's last big subreddit ban, which included just about all of the Trump fan club subs. As a result, they flooded over to this one, and I end up feeling like I'm scrolling through trump 2020 ads. If I wanted to do that I'd just watch youtube, so not my thing whatsoever.
PornhubComments, technicallythetruth, unexpectedMontyPython, and PewdiepieSubmissions: Put these all in the same group because they all have the same problem. They've all become circlejerks for the same joke, same gig, etc. I've seen like the same posts on technicallythetruth at least 20 times, and that's at least 15 times too many. I kind of feel like these subreddits naturally have dry spurs in terms of new content to post, which is fine, by all means. However, instead of not posting anything, people post the same joke/meme/whatever over and again. Hell, I feel like even memes sort of falls into this category, but at least their circlejerk is a bit more encompassing than "hehe Sive be a simp".
Finally, science, mildlyinfuriating, extremelyinfuriating, and nextfuckinglevel: kind of a mix of the first two paragraphs so naturally the best for last. It seems like they've become increasingly polarized and political over the COVID pandemic/lockdown time, and they don't make any sense. Like if I wanted to see about New Zealand's reaction to having 4 new cases, I'd visit Coronavirus, not science or nextfuckinglevel. Shouldn't the front page of science be more about recent advances in STEM fields or maybe a breakthrough in astronomy, instead of a difference in life expectancy in red and blue states, or you know, actual science? And then people will get "extremely infuriated" when you see a cop with his hand on his pistol grip during a traffic stop WHEN THAT IS WHAT THEY'RE LITERALLY TRAINED TO DO. If you have something political, post it on a political subreddit. When someone with immense talent does something absolutely insane, post it to nextfuckinglevel.

TLDR: Post stuff that actually fits that subreddit, and be creative. Downvote me into oblivion if you wish, idc. I'm just happy I got this frustration out.

2020.08.28 19:11 Affectionate_Loan_52 "You Won’t Believe Who Got More Vacation Days Than You!""It's the Serfs!!"

https://www.fodors.com/news/news/you-wont-believe-who-got-more-vacation-days-than-you

♫ Don’t scab for the kings, don’t listen to their lies, us poor serfs haven’t got a chance, unless we organize. ♫
When we picture life as a Middle Ages commoner, one (okay, I) might be inclined to summon up images of an endless stream of days tilling the fields for mud and medically repurposed leeches, the endless toiling only coming to a halt for the occasional witch burning. Turns out, our (my) impressions of medieval peasant life might not be as factually informed as we (I) think (and not just because Monty Python and the Holy Grail isn’t a terribly reliable source of information on the medieval period in Europe).
In her book, The Overworked American: The Unexpected Decline of Leisure*,* Julie B. Schor writes that life before the 40-hour workweek of the 20th-century and the 90-hour workweek of the Industrial Revolution involved less work and more leisure time.
Life before the 40-hour workweek of the 20th-century and the 90-hour workweek of the Industrial Revolution involved less work and more leisure time.
There were a handful of reasons that contributed to this more “laidback” way of life. For one thing, if you worked in the fields, your job was inherently seasonal. But unlike the present day, where a seasonal job means a temporary retail gig that lasts between Black Friday and Christmas and then scrambling on to your next job when work came to an end for a season, that’s just it: It came to an end for the season.
And when you did work, sure, you were probably in the fields “from dawn to dusk” but that didn’t mean that you were at your plow for every minute of that period. Schor references the writings of James Pilkington, a 16th-century bishop, in which he describes the average working day of the “labouring man” as starting with a “long rest in the morning; a good piece of the day is spent afore he come at his work; then he must have his breakfast…when the clock smitheth, he will cast down his burden in the midway…At noon he must have his sleeping time…and when his hour cometh at night…he casteth down his tools, leaveth his work, in what need or case soever the work standeth.” (A far cry from an age where some warehouse workers are so heavily deterred from taking normal bathroom breaks they’ve turned to urinating in bottles.) Outside of agriculture, a “days-works” would be about half a day for “servile laborers,” and artisans and masons could be worked out to a yearly average of nine hours a day. And, Schor notes, thanks to the influence of the church and its plethora of saints and rest days, English peasants likely didn’t work more than 120-150 days a year. That’s about 215-245 days off a year.
Vacations as we know them now weren’t quite a thing yet, but you know what made for a great excuse to get out of your hamlet and see some new sights? A good, old-fashioned pilgrimage. All of this makes sense if you stop to think about it, because what were The Canterbury Tales if not the Middle English version of going on a group outing with your new friends from the hostel?
And for those who couldn’t go on pilgrimages, there were “allegorical pilgrimages.” Texts like the itinerary maps of Matthew Paris, a 13th-century monk who compiled information and stories relayed to him by travelers, acted as guides for pilgrims that were made up of relevant information and illustrations of notable geographic points. Basically, if Fodor’s had been around in the 1200s, we might’ve had a Spiritual Journeys to the Holy Land series of texts. So even if you couldn’t physically go to Jerusalem (or even Canterbury), you could take all that time you weren’t farming and have yourself a little spiritual staycation.
Contrast that to the present day, where the U.S.—despite the standards set by every other comparable country—doesn’t guarantee workers any kind of paid vacation or holidays. And you don’t have to go back to the Dark Ages to see when Americans were better rewarded with time off. In the 20th century, according to CNBC, Americans took off an average of more than 20 days a year between 1976 and 2000. Since then, the number of days has declined. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, only 76% of private industry workers in 2017 received paid time off at all. Of that 76%, workers received an average of 10 vacation days after one year of service, and an average of 15 days after five years of service.
So when are things going to change for American workers? (It’s unlikely that finding a mud field to till is going to be a viable option in this day and age.) For strides in the right direction, you’ll have to look to the organizations that gave us the 40-hour workweek in the first place: unions. The news on this front is a bit of a mixed bag. On one hand, union-busting is alive and well, but unions like United Automobile Workers and more than 80,000 Kaiser Permanente workers continue to leverage their collective power for better pay and working conditions. Sounds like we all deserve a vacation.

2020.08.27 20:54 alexander_the_awsome Entitled kid ruins camping trip and Locks herself In portable toilets.

So I am a one of the older explorers in my troop (for those who don't know its basically scouts [or boy scouts if your American] but for the older people invalved) once you become 18 you can choose to become a leader of u want to. Which I do.
This was in October last year (pre coronavirus lockdown). There was this huge camp with troops from all over Scotland there. Several members of our group were sharing our section of the camp site with several members from another group who were pretty nice throughout the weekend.
I'm 18 and have been part of the troop since beavers (since I was 5yo), My story is about a typical 'karen' type person except she is 13yo. She's fairly new to our troop and was a guide before hand. We've had problems with her in the past but this one really takes the cake.
Friday evening: we arrive on site after a four hour drive in a mini bus and everyone starts putting up the tents but not ek, no she has better things to do. meaning while all the girls and i were putting up the tent we all had to share, she was on her phone the whole time.
I'm transgender and on scout camps I prefer to sleep in the tent with the girls because thats what I had been doing since age five, I was comfortable with them (other than ek, ligit we all hate her, you'll see why at the end of this) including two girls I have know literally my whole life, my sister and another girl I've known for about 7 years.
There are two pods in the tent and six girls to fit in. Now it would make sense to go 3 in each but not one person wants to share with ek. At which point one of my friends, whom I've know my whole life offers to share with her (Saint) so it's split 4 and 2, also just going to mention my friend takes no shit from anyone. Never has, never will. That night me, the others in my part of the tent and one of the boys from our troop were watching a movie I had downloaded on netflix. I'm going to point that it was around 7:30pm and most people at camps don't go to sleep until around 11pm - midnight. The movie is hardly audible and we are all crouching round my ipad, with the subtitles on. When out of no where we hear "ugh turn it off" we ignore her. Later again we hear "turn that mother fking shit off. Its so fKing annoying. For f**ks sake" At this point my friend who is sharing with her says "shut up, ur on your phones with headphones in and ur not trying to sleep" We hear the odd complaint every now and then but we completely ignore her. Also at this point we had known her for about 2 months, two things we learnt the day we met her is that 1: she swears like a sailor, very loudly. and 2: she talks with a fake American accent despite having never left the uk.
Btw that was just night one.
The next day we split off into our activity groups, unfortunately she is in my group however I met some people who were on a passport camp (they didn't have leaders with them) and they were cool so I spent most of the time with them meaning I didn't interact with ek during activities. A little while after activities are done we are called to dinner.
Now our leaders trust and respect us enough to not have many rules at camp, but they weren't going to start dinner until everyone was there. Guess who didn't show. My sister and I found her "sleeping' in the tent, in her sleeping bag with about 3 blankets over her face. We go up to her, tell her it's time for dinner but ek doesn't move. This is now 15 minutes after dinner was supposed to start, me, my sister and now my friend were literally screaming at her to get up, she eventually "wakes up" after we drag her sleeping bag out her pod and scream in her face again (no guilt).
Ek "just go away I'm sleeping"
Us "it's dinner time and we can't start without you"
Ek "I'm not coming"
And this point we go and get our leader, she isn't a scout leader but she is a guide leaver and is married to our leader (she is awesome btw and doesn't take shit from anyone) She goes in and manages to get her out of bed and to come to dinner.
At dinner my friends, sister and I were talking about monty python movies and the Princess bride, telling quotes and singing songs from it.
Ek I think was feeling left out so started getting mad saying things like "I've never hear of it" and "can you stop it's annoying" we don't stop in fact other people including our leaders join in the conversation about the movies. She changes the subject and starts going on about her mental health and what she calls her "dark days" now Im going to point out that I'm not a bad person but i know for a fact she is doing it for attention considering I myself and many, many of my friends have had really bad mental health problems in the past. Including a friend who was on this trip and my sister. I can tell she is faking considering she has changed her story's and told me all about her "dark days" TEN MINUTES after I met her.
But then she says something that really pissed me off.
Ek "ugh, I hate my little brother and sister, they both have autism and ADHD and its sooooo annoying. It makes me hate them."
I do not even dignify it with a response but others did. I have ADHD, 3 out of my 4 brothers have ADHD and autism. My sister who is on the trip and the table with us has ADHD (and severe anger management issues when it comes to people like this) my sister makes an angry response, I can't really remember it and we make a point to not talk to her.
Btw she was eating like a hamster, not gonna lie. Picture a hamster eating. That is what it looked like, also chewing with her mouth open. Not important but gross and weird.
The next day is leaving day and it's they day where after activities end, we get lunch and head home. Now already first thing in the morning she pulls the fake sleeping crap again. And again we scream at her and shake her and nothing works, untill my sister shouts "maybe I should stomp on her head" at which point she just jumps right up. We told the leaders about it before ek had a chance to exaggerate and they said it was completely fine.
I haven't even gotten to the worst part yet.
For lunch we had burgers. Thats important remember that.
After lunch we were packing up our campsite, rules being that everyone has to help. No exception. About 30 minutes into packing up we noticed that ek was missing and had been since we started, the leaders got camp security and we split off into teams to look for her. 30 minutes later and pretty much all packing was done, we found her in a portable toilet and not just any portable toilet, a portable toilet that had been getting used all weekend in a camp with more that 100 people in it and had not been cleaned. She had been in it for over an HOUR. We expressed our frustration to her and we started walking back to camp but as we were walking back, she pulled a burger from her pocket and started eating it. In case you don't get it she had been in that toilet for over an hour with a burger in her pocket and then ate the burger. It was f**King disgusting. Needless to say our leaders were furious. And she Didn't even help with the little packing that was left to do. I know that her mum was told but don't know what kind of punishment she got but it's a big deal to run away from a camp or disappear without telling someone. Btw I have met her mother she is not the slightest bit entitled and I have since met her little brother and sister who are lovely kids.
To make the weekend even worse she sat behind me and my sister on the 4 hour bus ride home and she stank of piss. Very strongly.

Death to smoochy is like....... Un fucking believable. If you like that genre, and havent seen it, you are dum. I'll recommend Polanski's black-comedy Horror film The Ninth Gate. Eating Raoul has that vibe. - The Perks of Being A Wallflower - Scream - Jojo Rabbit - Beetlejuice - Heathers - The Big Sick - The Lobster - Colossal - Sorry To Bother You - The King of Staten Island The Loved One - 1965 - Liberace as a coffin salesman?!?!?
Happiness

Harold And Maude, Heathers, Dr. Strangelove, Fargo, Shaun Of The Dead, Monty Python's The Meaning Of Life, Happiness, Gross Pointe Blank, South Park : Bigger Longer Uncut, Mother Jugs & Speed, A Boy And His Dog, After Hours, Network, Brazil, Serial Mom, To Die For, and Death To Smoochy.

Snatch, rock n rolla and the gentlemen are all pretty good dark comedies with pretty intense story and action. Guy ritchoe the director is a genius.

2020.08.14 07:45 do_until_false Because we don’t understand the Big Bang, women must dress with long sleeves

Because we don’t understand the Big Bang, women must dress with long sleeves
I can’t say it any better than Yuval Noah Harari:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bw9P_ZXWDJU#t=18m45s
From the transcript:
It’s like a magic trick that when you come and talk about God – so how do you know that God exists, and so forth? People would say, well, the Big Bang and human consciousness, and science can’t explain this, and science can’t explain that. And this is true. And then like a magician swapping one card for another, they will, shh! Take out the mystery god and place the petty lawgiver, and you end up with something strange like, because we don’t understand the Big Bang, women must dress with long sleeves and men shouldn’t have sex together. And what’s the connection? I mean, how did you get from here to there? So I prefer to use different terms here. And it’s the same with religion. People understand very different things with this word. I tend to separate religions from spirituality. Spirituality is about questions. Religion is about answers.
The same thought is also in his book “21 Lessons for the 21st Century”, in chapter 13, “God”.
This “magic trick” is of course also at the core of the JW belief. It’s literally the outline of e.g. this public talk:

Public Talk 101 Outline (not making this up, not even the number!)
Talks and articles like this always reminded me of Monty Python’s hilarious “The Meaning of Life” film, the organ transplant scene and the Galaxy Song:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JWVshkVF0SY

[...]The sun and you and me and all the stars that we can seeAre moving at a million miles a dayIn an outer spiral arm, at forty thousand miles an hour,Of the galaxy we call the 'Milky Way'.Our galaxy itself contains a hundred billion stars.It's a hundred thousand light years side to side.It bulges in the middle, sixteen thousand light years thick,But out by us, it's just three thousand light years wide.We're thirty thousand light years from galactic central point.We go 'round every two hundred million years,And our galaxy is only one of millions of billionsIn this amazing and expanding universe.[…]

MRS. BROWN: [sigh] Makes you feel so, sort of, insignificant, doesn't it?
MAN: Yeah. Yeah. [sniff] Can we have your liver, then?
MRS. BROWN: Yeah. All right. You talked me into it.
That's the basic principle: Make feel you insignificant, humble... then use this "weak" moment to force arbitrary stuff on you.

  151. Nor is he a vampire. That was body glitter and bad acting.
  152. And despite what the computer file on him may say, he is not Muad'dib. The spice can flow just fine without him.
  153. The "Tamlin House School of Witchcraft and Wizardry" is just a plain bad idea.
  154. Yes, empirical evidence is the foundation of science. Yes, blind faith is the death of reason. No, this does not logically imply that anyone is ethically obligated to demonstrate the existence of breasts under laboratory conditions.
  155. If Dr. Bright is ever found under the influence of any recreational substance, he must immediately be contained under level 15 containment. If you want to know why, please refer to the security tapes for ██/██/████ between the hours of ██:██ am and ██:██ pm.
  156. If Dr. Bright is found deliberately getting high to get out of paperwork, he is to be placed in a Type 4 cell and hosed down with cold water from a pressurised hose for no less than 5 minutes. Maybe this will teach you that drugs are bad, m'kay?
  157. Cthulhu and R'lyeh are not valid reasons to send Pandora's Box out into the Pacific Ocean in order to capture them. Furthermore, these are not even SCPs, and I will find the person who decided to enter a database file for them.
  158. Dr. Bright is not allowed to upload visual memetic kill agents to 4chan 7chan any imageboard.
  159. Well, okay, maybe to 4chan. It'd be doing the gene pool a service.
  160. Dr. Bright cannot change the standard issue D-Class uniform to black pants with a red polo shirt.
  161. I see your reasoning, but we just don't want to be associated with Star Trek.
  162. No matter how many times he may claim it, no matter how many uniforms we may confiscate, Dr. Bright is not a ninja, nor has he ever been.
  163. No. Not even if he uses SCP-281 to do it.
  164. There are no security codes for:
  165. Zombie conga line
  166. Badass hat
  167. Vampire can-can
  168. Disco corpse
  169. Intense homoeroticism
  170. Extreme crotch violence
  171. Man disguised as a palm tree
  172. Man with porn 'stache
  173. Kung fu rasta
  174. Puppy-eating monks
  175. Justifiable homicide of all you dumb ass mother humpers.
  176. Bright Family Reunion (Code Brown. Find a place to hide, and make sure you leave an offering of booze outside your door.)
  177. Dr. Kondraki beach party.
  178. Just because Bright is a doctor does not mean that he is the Doctor, no matter how many British men he possesses.
  179. No, SCP-963 is not proof against this.
  180. Nor is any structure that results from placing SCP-184 inside of a police call box.
  181. Adopting female members of the staff and calling them "companions" is right out.
  182. SCP-297 is NOT a sonic screwdriver.
  183. The Doctor who?
  184. While humour can be an effective way to improve staff morale, it is highly inappropriate to make "Your mum" jokes in the vicinity of SCP-597.
  185. Dr. Bright may not classify any researcher, including himself, as a memetic hazard.
  186. Dr. Bright is no longer allowed to accept or use the following as payment for bets:
  187. Your soul
  188. Anyone else's soul
  189. Virgin's blood
  190. Reproductive organs
  191. SCPs
  192. Memories (real or imagined)

  196. Firstborn children
  197. Second-born children
  198. Red-headed stepchildren

2020.08.08 18:58 50thhog [TOMT] [Music video] [around 2000] A weird/creepy music video from Viva 2

Around 2000. Viva 2 was a German music channel that was showing music videos from a little less mainstream music, mostly EDM. I remember a very creepy music video. The music video was kind of like a wireframe animation of a nude woman (very non-detailed, kinda like in Monty Python's Meaning of Life, but the background was bright/bright gray), and I might have remember a black heart symbol covering her crotch. It wasn't pornographic though, it was shown in a middle of the day after all, but it made me very uncomfortable as a kid. The music itself was EDM, probably? The bright gray digital aesthetics wouldn't match metal. I only remember a female voice and something about hate (in English), and that it was very intense/aggressive.

2020.07.29 09:04 herkato5 Gender-flipped scene of the "Monty Python's The Meaning of Life" (1983) that has a teacher giving sex education

Meant to be silly and absurd film:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monty_Python%27s_The_Meaning_of_Life
In my opinion the only good part of that movie:
https://youtu.be/uDoQFcQEpOQ?t=252
Something like that, but gender flipped, and longer. Possibly having to be in porn hub, at least a longer edition, while shorter edition could be in youtube. The audience / students can be left not shown if that is too costly. In this case, gender flipped means female teacher.

2020.07.21 00:20 Jaymansuperfly The Bard of Legend Dontae Aroyo

Hello there Jay here, I've been seeing online there were too many RPG horror stories of bad GMs and those guys but I decided to bring up a funny account from my character Dontae Aroyo *Flamenco music appears* a flamboyant High-elf Lore Bard who has a love for music and entertaining. armed with a lute, flute, and trusty rapier he took to adventuring and spreading his magical gifts to his adoring fans. For context, Dontae is your friendly meta bard magically breaking the fourth wall from here and there and he had a thing called the gift of Corellon *a feature from Tome of Foes* were elves that are in touch with their fey side could choose whatever gender they wanted after a long rest also makes them targets for drow cause they hate it; but Dontae still considered himself a man but he had a habit of playing for both teams if you know what I mean ;), (Before moving forward I'd like to mention Dontae has had a curse placed on him; if a creature within 30 feet of him were to say his full name aloud magical flamenco music plays out of nowhere he also refers to himself in the third person) anyways on to the story!!
I've had many adventures across the multiverse and met countless friends and foes from the largest leviathans to the tiniest of sprites. My goal is to study all manner of creatures in the multiverse and make one of the great books like the explorer Volo (clearly his treatise on kobolds was a clear stretch of the truth as I have had the misfortune of falling in a kobold den), but where are my manners, you are in the presence of the world-renown storyteller who needs no introduction but for the uninitiated feast your eyes on the immaculate Dontae Aroyo!! *Flamenco music plays behind the reader\*
Today the charming Dontae will recount you all a tale for the ages from the numerous memoirs surrounding this Magnificant Mansion. While the illustrious Dontae was enjoying some well-deserved downtime whilst in the splendorous city of Waterdeep after a daring raid on a vault containing a king's ransom in gold and platinum a mysterious Gnome mage summoned several other adventurers to a traveling circus in some sort of demi-plane. Among this motley crew was a Goliath Barbarian who went by Mountain Tim, cobra a rather strange and bizarre human with twin longsword and seem as edgy as his blades, a mysterious traveler known as "The Ranger" but was more of a clerical warrior, and of course the main attraction Dontae Aroyo!! *Flamenco Music plays vigorously as his coat billows* Our band was subjected to rigorous gladiatorial bouts to win our prize of 10,000 gold.

The first challenge was a band of goblins and spiders of which we made quick work of not too much of a hassle, nothing too glamourous. Our band hasn't gotten a scratch so we are all taken to this mage's antechamber to await our next trial. In the second fight, we endured we felt as if our souls were wrenched from our bodies and teleported to different areas in a makeshift maze separated from one another in the center of this maze was a group of 4 bugbears and a red dragon wyrmling. Seeing these low down ruffians the noble, courageous, devilishly handsome bard extraordinaire Dontae Aroyo *Flamenco music play above you* had one thing in mind...RUN AND HIDE LIKE A PANZY!!! This Bard had his fair share of goblinoids in Waterdeep having been chased down by members of the Xanathar Crime Syndicate who happened to be bugbears he did not wish to be dogpiled and lest we forget the elephant or rather DRAGON in the room Dontae had only encountered one dragon and promptly ran away fun said dragon while the fellow member of the took care of it. Unfortunately, they were not here with Dontae.
During the fight, a bugbear had found Dontae and caved in the back of his skull with a morning star from out of nowhere. (16 points of damage plus max bugbear ambush damage making it 28 damage a quarter of his health in one swing I got a nat 1 perception check to notice it sneaking up) Dontae saw said bugbear and proceed to run away (queue benny hill chase montage of using heat metal blindness and color spray to try and get this brute from him) whilst Dontae "nobly lured" **the burly bugbear to the rest of the party this humble bard was awestruck as this goliath slew this mighty dragon in one blow ** (Kid you, not guy rolls two nat 20s and max damage on the last hit overkilled the poor thing the GM was lost for words with this guys luck). "****The Ranger " and cobra saw our triumphant troubadour lure their quarry to its doom.
For the third fight, our battle was with a fearsome Bulette and three flame skulls (think of the bulette as the Graboids from the movie tremors a big ugly worm looking thing that pops out the ground from nowhere). Dontae managed to clamber up a pillar to hit the bulette from afar with clever insults, as the other members of the band took care of the flame skulls one of which cobra grabbed and tried to forcibly pry it upper and lower jaw apart only to have it sneeze and cast fireball in his face. We then faced two intellect devourers (evil little mind munchers that will make you stupid so they can use your body life a mech suit invasion of the body snatcher style) that took out "The Ranger" and Mountain Tim after casting protection from evil and good on them to see if it would drive out these little buggers they managed to regain control of their sanity.
The last fight was the deadliest of them all as a black dragon descended upon us. We still had a chance to run but this was the point of no return besides Dontae agreed to be well compensated and put all of his gold on these vagabonds surviving and pulling through. We fought tooth and nail with this beast slinging spells, firing arrows, and trying now to be burned with acid. it seemed like its hide was too strong and most of these bards spells seemed not to land. So Donte had only one thing left to try, mustering what little courage was left; with golden locks fluttering in the wind with a somewhat tattered tailcoat and bardic lute in hand uttering these famous last words staring deep in this foul beast's eyes casting vicious mockery "Hey you overgrown iguana with wings; your mother was a handbag and your father reeked of dysentery!" (I roll a four for vicious mockery damage and in front of us all the dragon rolls... a nat one and the one phrase that every player waits to here when the impossible was accomplished; HOW DO YOU WANT TO DO THIS!!) As the mighty beast envisioned the true terror of the bombastic bard's insult with a spurred boot upon this dragons snout the last words he echoing in the veil of death is simply this "Creature of mighty terror you have been slain by Dontae Aroyo!!" (Flamenco music plays around as he swings his rapier aloft).
and so was this chapter of Dontae Aroyo

TL:DR: The cringy and cliché meme of a bard slew his first dragon with a Monty Python quote!

2020.07.19 00:08 asssouplover Just ranting things out

For a couple of years I felt lost and i felt that life had no actual meaning, and that God is just an entity that helps people believe in a meaning to ease their meaningless existence. I always felt my pure joy when I was watching something different than what is the norm, like monty pythons work, Andrei Tarkovsky, David Lynch, absurdist and existential anime, instrumental music that was different yet brilliant in its meaningless tune..I felt confused by my thoughts and felt that i was crazy, that was before I got introduced to Camus and the philosophy of absurdism. When I started reading Camus i had no prior knowledge on his philosophical perceptions, yet i felt connected to his writings on a higher level. So naturally I started researching his work and felt joy when I found out there was a definition to what I am. Yet, i felt a drift with others and my social interactions kept declining to the bare minimum. Now, i feel more alone in a meaningless world that i find has no purpose for me. Perhaps my reason behind writing this entire thing is to feel to connected to someone, somewhere, on a philosophical level. Perhaps all i seek is that i am not alone in this world, that someone out there might take the time in their busy life and share their views with me, a conversation that i feel sunk in, not the shallow small talk that was introduced in the capitalistic entities. Or are we just all individually alone?

2020.07.15 08:59 ItsNadaTumor What is the best decade for film? The 1970s, 1980s, 1990s, 2000s or 2010s?

What is the best decade for film? The 1970s, 1980s, 1990s, 2000s or 2010s?
I recently had a debate about the best decade for movies with me saying tongue in cheek "movies and music sucks nowadays" as I shook my fist at the sky. I decided to make these lists rather than go by my memory which is clouded in bias and nostalgia to really give me the ammo to win this debate Well, clearly I was wrong about movies as Hollywood has been providing us a steady stream of great movies since the 70s, never letting up. Every decade brings it! But I'm not wrong about music though!!! That's been dead to me since the late 90s! I put movies I genuinely think are great. Every single one. If you haven't seen a movie on this list, you should!
***I made this entire list with the intention of leaving most comic book movies and animation off. But I now believe that was a mistake. Some of these movies are seriously incredible and belong in top 20 lists or even higher and might very well change the order of my rankings.
***As I'm typing this BEFORE adding these movies, my rankings are: 90s>80>00s>70s>10s.
Let's revisit my possibly revised rankings at the bottom.

  6. Mad Max: Fury Road
  7. 12 Years a Slave
  8. Moonlight
  9. Parasite
  10. Once Upon a Time in Hollywood
As a remind, before I added animation and comic book movies my rankings were: 90s>80s>00s>70s>10s
I only added a handful, albeit incredible, movies from these genres to the 1980s, slightly strengthening that already stellar decade.
Pixar came out guns blazing with its first few offerings and Disney started to bring it as well so I added even more to the 90s than I did to the 80s making this a considerably stronger decade than it already was.
Pixar, Disney, and other animation studios were at their peaks, we got some excellent comic book movies, most of the Harry Potters, the first few Pirates of the Caribbean, Hunger Games and the first two Star Wars prequels. These additions completely transformed this decade. At this point Hollywood completely embraced animation and super hero movies making them a priority. Wow what a difference!!!
While the animated movies kept coming in droves, though at the cost of some quality, almost the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe and the complete DCEU was added. Of all the decades, this was the most dramatic change.
Fuck! Unbelievable. Adding those two genres completely transforms my rankings. You simply can't ignore how much longer the list of quality movies gets for the 00s and 10s. It's astounding. I could make a case for a variety of different rankings. I think if I had to make a new top 100 for each decade and use that as my basis for my rankings, my new definitive rankings after adding the two genres is:
90s>80s>10s>00s>70s
Phew. To the few who bother reading all of this thank you and please vote so we can put this debate to rest

2020.07.15 07:33 Lilfacelesslovers My story

Have you ever felt like someone’s watching you? Well maybe you’re just famous. Welcome to my life in Los Angeles. I am now 24 years old and currently single. When the COVID crisis started one thing was for sure, the masks fit into my great plan for remaining anonymous. It’s hard to be a celebrity. Everyone watching.... so back to covid. I was a part of a documentary that was already talk for Oscar. The only thing is, I was the only actress who didn’t know she was being filmed. It was a documentary, of sorts, but it was also not until it was done filming that I was to know I was being filmed. When covid came around a lot of the crew stopped filming so eventually I met the director, and he told me. I thought I was filming a movie only during the day, but they were filming a movie about me 24/7. So things that were weird in the past began to now make sense.
Fast forward to March 20th, 2020. I’m at the beach filming a scene, I had met my scene partner in the morning and we did a bit of pump up to start. So we smoked a few bowls, drank and then we were ready. The cameras were to be on each of our shirts, with audio. What I didn’t know was the actual subject of this documentary was that whenever there was someone with me, they were constantly filming, even when the ‘cameras were off’. Now all this being said, if covid never happened I might not have found out I was being filmed.
So back to March 20th. I get mad, really mad at the ‘fake director’. I was not given proper food, water or money on set. So I step off set. My friend met me in the morning but I didn’t know how he knew where I was. As we sit by the beach he stuck a needle in his arm, want some he asks? No, I don’t do needles. So as I write this story I know, this was all being recorded, and he was an actor. It might have been a lot of improv but this was alla boyhood. To show the growth of an actress in Hollywood behind the scenes. My Instagram might show what I want the world to know, but this movie was meant to show the world behind the makeup.
So my parents haven’t always been supportive, and for the purpose of the film, they didn’t know either. So my house was bugged with cameras and microphones to see what it was really like to be me. One day the director had me shoot a scene in downtown. Afterwards I had some extra food so I offered it to some homeless guys on 6th street. Apparently he was lonely. So I offered to talk with him for a few minutes. Later I found out, he had a microphone. His name was Reuben. We spent the night talking and I heard his story. We smoked weed, and I forgot he didn’t have a home. And at a certain point, I got a call from my director. He said we’d be shooting in a hour so I figured I’d stay with Reuben till then. Reuben tried to make a move on me, and I was so fucked up I let him fuck me. I drove to set thinking that he took advantage of me. I just tried to give him something to eat. Little did I know that he was also a paid actor, and was not actually homeless.
So I get to set the next day and pretend like nothing happened. But once the city of LA went on lockdown, apparently the production ended. My director approached me with another guy who he said was also a director. Apparently they’d be using a secret camera on me for 6 months. When covid was over I was going to be even more famous then I already was. I’m an actress! They said it was called, ‘Unmasked in Los Angeles’. So they wanted to take me around for a day and celebrate. We got black out wasted and I woke up the next morning next to the other director. Shit. I’m naked again. Fuck I think. Well at least they’ll be famous - and this part isn’t on film!
So I think, wow this is the first day in 6 months I haven’t been filmed: so what should I do? I meet up with this guy walking around like, hey I’m an actress do you want to hang out for the day? He looking at me, star struck, says yes. We start walking and walking. I forget I’m not being recorded. Then remember I was recorded for the last 6 months. Oh fuck. They saw everything. Every guy I slept with, every time I cried, and every dirty lie I told. Damn.
I decided me and this guy and gonna get fucked up and try and forget what happened. His name was John. He took me to his friends house where they were playing NBA2K. They then offered me weed, coke, and booze, and to their delight I became incredibly horny. Thinking about it, this part isn’t filmed. Wow. So I took one guy at a time while the other showered, and the friend, who was named Miguel, asked only me to stay for a while.
Meanwhile my unsupportive parents still haven’t been informed they were part of this. They can’t find me and don’t know what’s going on. I decide to wait a day before showing my face at home. So I stay with Miguel.
The next morning I head home and my parents are livid. I explain what is happening to them and they think I’m crazy. So two days later I’m cooking in the Kitchen when two strippers dressed as cops come to the door. They ask if I can come with them. I wink at them, they’re too cute to be real so I say yes! Apparently my mom and dad didn’t find out, so I told her before I left, the coffee cup with the Monty python logo has a microphone in it.
So where were these two sexy men taking me? I didn’t know but I guess I needed a health screening first. So we went by a hospital. They wouldn’t believe me, but I could tel they recognized me from my earlier fame in LA. They brought me into a hospital. And eventually we got back into an ambulance. This is weird huh. I told them I thought we were going to an after party or something. But they wheeled me into this building. I guess it’s where the editing takes place. The director had been staying here the whole time...
So they gave me a room with one other actress. They didn’t tell me to, but we focused on improv. Later I was given a new room in the general public. My private room I guess was too expensive for my parents. Ah, stardom. So the next day, I realized I was at a spa type vacation for the cast and crew since production was finished. We got three meals a day, a tv room, and any medications we needed. Plus we got to do scenes between our relaxation classes.
So this is where I met Brian. He was sitting in the tv room, and he told me his name. We started talking and I guess he was under the impression this was a mental hospital. He also didn’t know he was an actor I guess, he was one of my co stars in post production. I wonder if this was being filmed.
So Brian was shocked to find out he was rich. When I told him he must have been in my movie too, he was shocked. My roommates, Delilah and Julia were in the music department. I knew because they both wrote raps together in their free time.
It’s Friday Night and now I’m getting antsy. I ask one of the spa specialist why they’re dressed as nurses and she told me I’m just acting silly.
So Saturday morning I wonder how long we’re all here for. I get a call over the loud speaker, that I was to have a meeting. Now granted, we’re in COVID times so all the meetings taking place here are over Zoom.
So this zoom meeting has a lawyer, one of the nurses and me. I ask when I’ll get out and the lawyer says she’s accessing my condition. I comment yes, and laugh, finding out you’ve been filmed for the last six months in shocking. So she says I’ll likely get to return home in 3 days. Well she called it a 72 hold. Must be lawyer speak. So I go and talk to my new best friend Brian. I figure maybe he was put here as a life interest, but we’re sleeping in gender separated rooms. So I kissed him figuring no one would mind. But the next day Brian told me he was being transferred. He kissed me on the head and told me goodbye. Brian would later go on to be my boyfriend.
So later that day I get a call from my mom saying she didn’t hear from any director. I don’t have his number I tell her. But she insists this is a hospital. I remark, oh of course, the director fucked up, and I’ve suffered mental trauma.
But she insisted.
Please take your medication.
Of course I said.
The next day during yoga I had a realization. Why couldn’t I leave? What does a 72 hour mean?
So as an actress I naturally ask them if I can pay to leave. They say no, it doesn’t work that way.
I begin to yell, what kind of a retreat is this?
Someone takes me into a room and reassures me, Brian calls over the intercom and confirms what might be my worst nightmare. This is a mental asylum. And I’m not an actress. I’m actually just a girl with bipolar. This is my story.
