The most successful pop group of the 20 century; they changed popular culture forever. From their first studio contract in 1962 until 1970, the Beatles lineup consisted of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr.This famous lineup is also known as the 'Fab Four' while many other musicians claimed the 'Fifth Beatle' status. The Beatles were so fond of Picardy cadence that their A Hard Day's Night contains as many as three songs in which a minor chord is unexpectedly replaced by a major one. In Things We Said Today and I'll Be Back, the A major chord is heard at the end of each verse although both songs are set in A minor key. In And I Love Her, Picardy third is ...

2020.09.15 02:05 bbeeddiiOdeio quando você trás os seus amigos
Cara, eu sei que você tem vários amigos além de mim, e seria ridículo e mesquinho pedir por 'exclusividade,' mas eu tô cansada. Quando te chamo pra jogar, ou só pra conversar um pouco antes de dormir, não espero que você traga junto meia-dúzia de aleatórios que eu nem sei como se chamam, e aí fico quase precisando BRIGAR por um minuto da sua atenção. Também não quero conhecer essas pessoas. Não curto a companhia delas, não são a minha turma, eu não ligo pra elas. E o pior é que se eu te disser essas coisas, vou ser a bruxa possessiva, e afinal escolher entre mim e o seu grupo de amigos não seria difícil. Então vou me poupar o papel de Yoko, e deixar os Beatles em paz. Espero que o seu chinelo quebre no meio da rua.
2020.09.05 13:01 spiritofmnemothsíndrome de underground é uma parada ridícula
Eu não consigo mais consumir conteúdo de canais de opinião ou de "ensaio" no youtube, nem sequer discutir nada relacionado a música, filmes, quadrinhos, livros, "cultura pop" no geral, na internet. São todos um bando de sofistas que pegam um discurso que só anda em círculos, cospe banalidades e obviedades e transformam em uma suposta análise genial só falando de uma maneira profunda e sedutora, jogando clipezinhos ou imagens do material original e um lo-fi de trilha sonora. Outra coisa que me incomoda é essa corrida do ouro em busca de referências super originais que ninguém nunca ouviu falar, e que portanto me tornam superior ao resto dos mortais por conhecê-la. Ninguém está autorizado a gostar do filme do Coringa porque tem esses 3 filmes independentes lançados pra DVD em duas locadoras de Los Angeles que abordam o tema da saúde mental muito melhor que essa porcaria mainstream, glorificadora de "incel". Ninguém está autorizado a gostar dos clássicos, se suas bandas indie favoritas são Kings of Leon e The Strokes, você é poser, a única banda boa é aquela banda neozelandesa que gravou uma demo em 2013 e só fez um show pra cinco pessoas num restaurante em Auckland. A música que mais influenciou a minha vida foi Within You Without You do George Harrison (não é dos Beatles, é do George Harrison), pode me chamar de roqueiro poser, eu não tô nem aí. Eu conheço coisas mais obscuras, mas uma mídia ser pouco conhecida não faz dela superior como obra de arte, isso é ridículo. Diga-se de passagem, às vezes ela é desconhecida porque é ruim mesmo. Eu odeio o quão banal e genérico esse texto foi. Obrigado Edit: é incrível o quanto tem algumas pessoas que levam tudo ao extremo. Eu não posso fazer uma crítica contundente a canais que seguem um formato específico (nem especifiquei os canais, mas a carapuça serviu) que sou hater. Eu acho sim que existem vídeos bons, e coisas boas que saem de canais de vídeo ensaio, só acho problemáticas as formas com que eles muitas vezes apresentam o conteúdo, e a maneira com que parte da audiência consome esse conteúdo. Me chamar de hater só porque eu não escondo a emoção no meu texto é uma coisa assustadora. Eu acho que preciso falar num tom solene e constante e jogar um lofi no fundo, aí essas pessoas vão aceitar a minha mensagem sem questionar (isso foi uma piada).
2020.09.01 23:34 Informal_Seesaw_6964In an alternate universe, we get a Beatles biopic in 2019 instead of Yesterday. How much would it make?
Yesterday is a movie about waking up in a world where nobody except for you remembers the Beatles. But, what if instead of that, it was a biopic movie about the life story of the Beatles band itself? How much do you think it would make in OW, DOM, OS, and WW? Do you think the Beatles are big enough to make as much as Bohemian Rhapsody or even a billion?
2020.08.30 18:10 GeminusLeonemBrick & Mortar - An Idea for a 2nd Unique Structure Mod
So... I got kinda bored these past few days and, inspired in how the amazing Steel & Thunder mod adds in a 2nd Unique Unit to each Civ, I wondered if I could come up with a 2nd Unique Structure to each Civ as well. After doing some wiki-diving, this incredibly rough list is what I was able to scrounge up:
The Homestead Improvement would represent the massive privately-owned farming and pastoral complexes that the American Government gave away to its populace.
+2 Gold. +1 Food. +1 Housing. +1 Food for every 2 adjacent Farms. +1 Gold for every adjacent Plantation. +1 Production for each adjacent Pasture. Extra yields with more tech and civics. Unlocked at "The Enlightenment".
Saqyahs were animal-powered machines that uplifted water into aqueducts to irrigate arid lands. During the Islamic Golden Age, these machines were heavily used in the Arabian lands while also being constantly improved upon.
For reference, they could possibly look like this.
It could be represented as an Improvement with some inherent Production and Food (maybe +2 Production, +1 Food, +2 extra Food when near Fresh Water) that boosts adjacent farms (+1 Food) and allows adjacent desert tiles to be farmable. It would be unlocked at the Engineering Tech and get more yields and bonuses with tech.
A federally funded research institute, the "Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation" has been heavily involved in major scientific and technological breakthroughs for more than a century.
Compared to the normal Research Lab it could grant: 2 extra Science, 1 extra Citizen Slot, and 2 extra Science Yields per Citizen working there or something akin to that.
Akin to the mod's version it would get: +1 Food. +0.5 Housing. +1 Food from every adjacent Chinampa. +1 Food to every adjacent Farm. +1 Food from 2 adjacent Farms, +1 Faith if on a Lake Tile. Extra yields with more tech and civics. Can be built Coastal Tiles near 2 Grass, Plains, or Desert Tiles. Unlocked at "Engineering".
Brazilwood was a highly valued commodity due to it's multiple and rare properties. Its use as a component of red dye, velvet, high-end furniture, and musical instruments made the Portuguese incredibly rich during the Renaissance Period.
+2 Gold. +2 Culture. +0.5 Housing. Extra Yields with more tech and civics. Gives minor adjacency bonus to the Theater Square and the Industrial Center. Can only be built on Rainforests (maybe also on Woods). Unlocked at "Bronze Working".
Founded in the 17th Century as a Fur Trading company, it worked for almost 200 years as the de facto government of the land surrounding the Hudson's Bay before selling the land to the Canadian Government in the 19th Century.
Compared to the normal Bank, the Hudson's Bay Company could give an extra minor Gold bonus (+1 or +2 at the most) to Tundra, Snow, and Woods tiles. In the case of a Forested Tundra tile, the bonus could stack.
Imperial China was famous for its meritocracy. Even as early as the Tang dynasty has the Empire used exams to appoint various governmental posts and civil servant jobs instead of just choosing people based on their social status and wealth.
Compared to the Library, the Exanimation Hall could grant Culture equivalent to the Campus adjacency bonuses.
Due to Imperial China's predominant power in East Asia, a network of international relations, focused on tribute gifting and acknowledging China's superiority, was organically established in order to both appease China and to access the much-coveted Chinese trade goods.
This Tributary System still sorta exists today, as both private companies and many nations throughout the world do their best to appease the CCP in order to either get a foot into the Chinese markets or to obtain Chinese investment.
Compared to the Consulate, it would also grant +1 Diplomatic Favour per City-State China is Suzerain of and +1 of the corresponding yield from each City-State it is Suzerain of.
The Cree term for "Longhouse". Semi-permanent residential dwellings, built to house multiple families and hold meetings.
It also feels like a pretty apt Unique Structure to add since the Haudenosaunee have close to no chance of being part of the New Frontier Pass, and as such, have unfortunately little chance of appearing officially in Civ 6.
Compared to the Market, the Sabtuan could give some extra trade bonuses. Like giving the city it is built upon a Trading Post if it doesn't have one already, doubling the Trading Post bonus for passing trade routes and granting all trade routes passing or ending in the City it is built upon an extra bonus of +4 Gold (both International and Domestic).
This Recording Studio is meant to represent the explosion in popularity of British music through the 60s and 70s, thanks to bands like the Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Queen, David Bowie and of course the Beatles.
Compared to the Broadcast Center, the Recording Studio would grant +6 Culture when Powered, double the normal Great Musician points (+4), double the Great Work of Music Slots (+2), and grant Rock Bands the special promotion "British Invasion", making it perform everywhere as if 1 level higher than it actually is.
Akin to Sukritact's mod, the Hawelti would be limited to one per city, giving Faith based on the tile's Appeal (+1,+2,+4) and boosting trade routes from the city by either +1, +2, or +4 Culture, depending on the tile's Appeal. Unlocked at "Mysticism".
A French institution of higher education, separate from its public university system. Inspired by its own military colleges, they were first founded around the 17th century, after the French Revolution, with entries based on merit to open up higher education to the masses.
Compared to the Military Academy the Grand École also gives +3 Science and a bonus of +2 of the appropriate yield from adjacent districts.
Defensive Tower Houses, of around 20ish meter of height, built in the Svaneti region of Georgia. They were usually built as complexes of multiple Tower Houses united by wooden bridges.
This Improvement would essentially work as a quasi-fort with inherent production, housing, and defense. It could give extra yield bonuses from being built upon hills and from being adjacent to mountains while being unlocked at "Defensive Tactics".
Fortresses built by the Germanic Holy Orders during the middle ages to both house the invading knights and to aid in their colonization of the Baltics.
Compared to the Armory, the Ordensburg could give some extra +2 Housing, +2 Faith, +2 Religious Pressure, and maybe grant a Faith boost equal to 20% of the Production cost of non-civilian units whenever they are produced.
The Paisa Town could synergize with Gran Colombia's unique Improvement, the Hacienda/Finca, by having a Minor Adjacency Bonus to both Hacienda/Fincas and Plantations. It could also create a copy of whatever luxury good is being worked in adjacent Plantations.
Literally meaning "Gathering Place" in Greek, the Agoras served both as commercial centers and as social spaces where political, artistic, and military matters could be performed and discussed freely.
The Agora could grant extra bonuses to trade routes to City-States. The first trade route to a City-State from one of Greece's cities with an Agora could grant it an extra Envoy and trade routes to City-States from cities with an Agora could have extra yields, be it extra Gold, Culture or extra Yields corresponding to the City State type.
The Végvár were a series of border castles built in the southern Hungarian border during the 15th Century with the simple purpose of stopping Turkish aggression. Not many of these border castles still stand today however as they were either dismantled or destroyed through the 18th century.
These special Forts should be able to be built by workers and unlocked with the "Castles" tech. They could grant more defense than a normal Fort, plus some extra faith and maybe some adjacency bonuses to Farms and whatnot.
While it is currently Pachacuti's Unique Improvement, the Incan Royal Road could be the perfect 2nd Unique Structure with just a few additions.
The new Qhapaq Ñan could, for example, grant the Mountain Tile it is built upon +1 Gold and extra Gold depending on the number of trade routes that pass through it... maybe +1 Gold per Trade Route or something like that. Plus it could get some more yields with more techs and civics.
While not a Kabuki Theater per se, the great JNR's Dojo mod's model of said Dojo would be perfect to represent it.
The Kabuki Theater would grant +2 Culture, +1 Citizen Slot, +1 Great Writer Point, +1 Great Musician Point, +1 Slot to Great Works of Writing, +3 Slots to Great Works of Music, +1 Gold to all Great Works in the City.
Barays were artificial bodies of water commonly associated with the Khmer Empire.
The Baray is part of the great Sukritact's Khmer Rework and would work pretty much the same: +2 Housing and +2 Amenities. +1 Housing from adjacent Farms and Wonders. Adjacent Farms receive an additional +2 Food, +1 Faith. Prevents Food loss during Drought. Cannot be built on Hills. Military Engineers can spend a charge to complete 20% of a Baray’s production.
As giant industrial conglomerates controlled and owned by a single family, the South-Korean Chaebols are the result of a massive industrialization push, foreign investment, and major amounts of state guidance. Right now most of the richest and famous South-Korean brands are part of a Chaebol, with the three most famous being Hyundai, Samsung, and LG.
The Chaebol would grant extra +2 Production (+4 if Powered) and +1 Science to Korea for each Foreign International Trade Route either ending or passing through the City.
Heroa were Hellenic shrines dedicated to worship fallen Heroes. Not only were there various Heroa built to worship Alexander's Argead dynasty throughout Macedon, but Alexander himself claimed to be a living god and was worshipped as such. After Alexander's death, Ptolemy founded the Imperial Cult of Alexander, placing him at the same level as the Olympian Gods.
The Heroon could grant extra +1 Great General Points, some extra Loyalty (+2 or something), and allow the city to buy melee units, ranged units, and Hetairoi with Faith.
Mudbricks have been used throughout various arid regions of the world, where timber is rather scarce, since the Bronze Age. The Mali empire possessed its own type of Mudbrick known as "Banco", which was famously used to build the Great Mosque of Djenné, the largest mudbrick structure in the world.
The Mudbrickyard could simply grant extra +2 Production and +1 Production to the City's Desert Tiles.
Pā were essentially stratified hillforts, built by the Maori with palisades atop defensive terraces.
The current in-game Pā is a unique improvement only built by the Toa unit that works as a normal Fort with extra healing properties that can only be built on hills.
The new Pā would be buildable by both the Toa and by Military Engineers. It would still require a hill to be built upon while granting the defensive bonuses of the Fort and it's extra healing properties, without sacrificing tile yields. It could also grant a small bonus yield of Food to represent the plantations within said Pā, plus some more yields with more tech and civics. It would be unlocked alongside the Toa with the "Construction" tech.
Mapuche culture is famous for its silverwork. Since the time that European Settlers brought metallurgy to the New World, the Mapuche have developed their own unique style os silversmithing. They produced a huge amount of silverware goods up until the XIXth century when Argentina and Chile mass murdered the Mapuche people and expelled the survivors from their homeland.
The Silversmithy could grant extra +2 Culture, +1 Gold to Mines, and a stackable extra +2 (maybe +3) Culture to Mines with Luxury Resources.
Literally meaning "Divine House" in Mayan, the K'uh-Nah were the now-famous Mayan temple-pyramids, which are unique in Mesoamerica due to their reliefs of mixed astronomical and mythological events.
The K'uh-Nah could be an improvement that grants +1 Science, +1 Faith, +1 Faith if built on a Hill, +1 Science per 2 Adjacent Rainforests, +1 Faith per 2 Adjacent Woods, needs to be built on a Rainforest or Woods Tile, cannot be built adjacent to another K'uh-Nah. Gains more yields with Tech (+1 Science at Mathematics and whatnot) and is unlocked with the "Astrology" Tech.
The Mongol word for "Yurt". They were round skin-covered tents and the main dwellings of the Steppe Nomads.
The Ger would represent the vast steppe herds and be an improvement that grants +1 Production, +1 Food, +1 Culture, +1 Food to adjacent non-forested, unimproved Grassland or Plains Tile, +1 Production per adjacent Pasturable Resource (+2 if they are Horses), needs to be built upon a non-forested, non-hilly Plains or Grassland Tile without access to Fresh Water and not adjacent to other Gers. Gains more yields with Tech and Civics (especially more yields to the bonus given to adjacent empty tiles) and is unlocked with the "Horseback Riding" tech.
Waags were specialized public buildings where goods would be weighed and taxed. They were rather common through the Netherlands and Northern Germany before international weight standards were established.
The Waag could grant some extra bonuses to Trade Routes starting in the City with the Waag, based on the resources of the destined City, such as +1 or +2 Production per Strategic Resource and +2 or +3 Gold per Luxury Resource. Plus it could boost International Trade Routes to a city with a Waag by +2 Gold and +1 Production or something like that.
The Old Norse word for Harbor or Haven. These Hafnar would represent the many trade ports established by Norse traders throughout the North Sea, Baltic Sea, and Russian rivers.
Aesthetically, the hǫfn would look like a normal Harbor with some extra Norse boathouses (also known as naust), and some Norse round shields spread through its pier. Its Icon could simply be the Lögr rune.
These Hafnar could grant their city an automatic Trading Post, increase the yields of trade routes that pass through their city (extra gold or something), and grant a 25% Production discount for Naval Melee and Naval Raider Units.
Directly translated from Meroitic meaning "House of God", "Sim-Mk" was the most common term used by the Kushites when mentioning their Temple Complexes in their hieroglyphs. The more common Egyptian term "Hwt-Ntr" (also meaning "House of God") is also found in some Kushite religious complexes that were originally built by Egyptian dynasties.
Akin to the "Precinct of Amun-Ra" mod, the "Sim-Mk" would grant an extra +1 Faith to Marshes, Oasis, and Floodplains while having extra Major adjacency bonuses from Oasis and extra Standard adjacency bonuses from Floodplains.
The Ottomans were famous for the development of revolutionary artillery pieces from the mid-XVth century to the XVIIth century, like the famous Great Turkish Bombard, the Darbzen, and the Abus Gun. The "Siege Foundry" aims to represent their achievement in this specific camp.
The Siege Foundry would essentially take on the properties of the Ottoman's UA (which would need to be slightly changed) and give a 50% Production discount to Siege Units produced in the city while granting these Siege Units an extra +5 Combat Strength.
Satraps were, quite simply, the governors of massive provinces within the Zoroastrian Persian Empires, which was also adopted by Alexander's short-lived Empire and by the Seleucid Empire. These Satraps were chosen by the Shah and held high levels of autonomy within their Satrapy, being reigned in only by the checks and balances imposed upon them by a group of royal emissaries that made periodic reports to the Shah.
Akin to the mod, the Satrap's Court grants the same yields as a City Center if the city has 100% Loyalty, plus some extra Loyalty (+2 or something), some extra yields to foreign trade routes passing through the city, and it cannot be built near the City Center.
Tophets were sacrificial precincts and burial grounds present in all the Phoenician cities and colonies. The word itself originates from a reference in the Bible of a place where Phoenician would sacrifice their children to the gods Baal and Tanit. Although the child sacrifice itself is disputed, as the child corpses found within these Tophets all show signs of dying by natural causes, the religious and cultural importance of the Tophets themselves remains.
Barbicans, or Barbakans in Polish, were round defensive fortifications that preceded the entrance of castles and cities in order to fortify their gates. They were rather popular in Poland from the XIVth century to the XVIIth century.
The Barbakan, besides the normal Armory bonuses, would grant extra 2 Culture, extra Defense to the Encampment (maybe extra 50 Health and +2 Combat Strength) and some extra 25% combat experience to heavy and light cavalry units (stackable with the Stables bonus) to represent the Polish focus on Cavalry through the Early Modern Era.
Castrum were standardized fortified military towns designed to house, protect, and field a Roman Legion. They were always rectangular, with a gate in each wall, a forum-like administrative center, a manor for the Legion's Legate, proper houses for the Tribunes (officials), a hospital, a massive bathing complex, multiple workshop complexes, and enough barracks to field up to six thousand Legionaries.
The Castra would be buildable by both the Legion unit and Military Engineers. It would have all of the Fort's defense bonuses and extra +1 Housing, +1 Production, +1 Culture, and some more yields with extra Tech. It would be unlocked either alongside the Legion unit at "Iron Working" or at "Construction".
Ostrogs were fortified Russian settlements surrounded by wooden palisades. They were used from the Medieval Age to the Colonization of Siberia in the XVIIth Century. Later, in the XVIIth and XIXth Centuries, they were used as prison camps.
The silhouette of the Ostrog tower could be used as the District's Icon with good effect.
The Ostrog, besides the usual Encampment bonuses, could grant extra Housing (+1 or +2), extra +1 Production or Gold per Tundra Tiles adjacent to it (to represent the labor-intensive conditions of the Ostrog settlements and the Yasak tribute system), and maybe even deal constant damage to all adjacent Enemy Units.
Oilthighean, Scottish for Education Houses or Universities, are meant to represent the medieval and early renaissance Universities of Scotland (which were the majority of high education sites in Britain, and especially in Scotland, for a good long time).
The Oilthigh could have extra + 1 Citizen Slot, +2 Science, +1 Great Scientist Point, and maybe some extra Science to Trade Routes passing by the city with the Oilthigh... a tad boring bonuses but I can't think of anything unique for them.
"Skula" is a derivation of the proto-Scythian word "Skutha", meaning "archer", and, according to Herodotus, was what the Scythian Royalty (not to be confused with the "Royal Scythian" tribe known as the Paralaetae) self-designated as. Another origin of the title is proposed by Herodotus as it being a derivation of the legendary Scythian king Scules' name.
Scythians were incredible horse breeders and one of the first documented people to have created a truly effective cavalry unit. This Unique Building would serve as a representation of their equestrian achievements.
The Skulatae Stable could grant extra +2 Faith and a 20% discount for Light and Heavy Cavalry Unit Production.
Lonjas, also known as "Casas de Contratación", were Spanish establishments used as mercantile meeting houses that controlled trade deals, migration to Spanish Colonies, and expeditions to America. The most famous of these Lonjas was, of course, the "Casa Lonja" of Seville, which is represented in-game as the "Casa de Contratación" Wonder.
Aside from the normal bonuses from a Bank, the Lonja could grant: a bit more Gold (+2 or +3), an extra bonus to intercontinental Trade Routes, be them domestic or international, that either start or end in the city (maybe some extra Gold and Faith), and extra +1 Great Merchant Points if it's on the Spanish Home Continent.
'É' is simply the Sumerian word for Temple. This Structure would overlap with the already existing "Ziggurat" Improvement, but the Sumerian Temple Complexes truly are their most unique architectural achievement.
In-game the 'É' could either be represented as a Shrine replacement using the temple present in the top of the Ziggurat Improvement with some minor changes or it could fully replace the Holy Site with the aforementioned Ziggurat temple placed in the empty quadrant and maybe even a small elevated platform below the district itself.
If it replaced the Shrine then it would grant extra +1 Great Scientist Points and either +1 Science or Faith per Ziggurat in the city.
If it replaced the Holy Site then it would have an extra Standard Adjacency for Rivers and Ziggurats, +1 Great Scientist Points, and extra +2 Science to Citizen Yields working there.
The Swedish Royal Academies are independent institutions founded by Royal Charters since the XVIIIth century. They are famous for being the Prize Awarders of the Nobel Prizes in Chemistry, Physics, Economic Sciences, and Literature.
The Royal Academy is already present in Merrick's Sweden mod, represented by a tweaked "Military Academy" model.
The Royal Academy could have bonuses akin to the aforementioned mod: Extra +1 Great Scientist, Engineer, Merchant, Writer, Artist, and Musician points.
"Iziko" means hearth in the Zunda languages (Zulu, Xhosa, and the like). It is meant to represent the gathering places where the Zulu people would bond and perform their oral traditions, such as isicathamiya music or izibongo poems.
In-game this "Iziko" could use the fireplace (and maybe some iqukwane huts) from the Ikanda Unique District as it's model.
The Iziko could take some notes from the Marae building and, instead of the normal Amphitheater bonuses, could grant a boost of Culture and Faith equal to 20% of a Unit's Production cost whenever one is produced in the city.
After the Earthquake of 1755 that completely destroyed Lisbon, the Portuguese Prime-Minister and Marquis of Pombal, Sebastião de Melo together with the Royal Engineer Manuel de Maia designed an entirely new city layout with wide, straight, orderly streets and seismically resistant buildings. As of today, Lisbon's Pombaline Downtown is one of the most popular touristic attractions of the capital.
Grants +2 Science and +2 Gold. Housing and Tourism based on appeal (+2 to +6 for Housing and +0 to +4 for Tourism). Is impervious to all Natural Disasters except Flooding and Comets. Unlocked at Civil Engineering.
Ireland became known as the "Land of Saints and Scholars" due to the incredibly high number of local Irish Saints and religious edifices like monasteries, abbeys, and churches built in between the VIth and XIX century, which this "Abbey" would attempt to represent.
The Abbey is present in EnigmaConumdrum's Ireland mod, though I do feel that it could use some tall Cloigthithe and a small stone wall around the District to sell the look.
Akin to the mod above, the Abbey would grant +1 Great Work of Writing Slot to all its buildings, +2 Faith to all Works of Art, Writing, and Music in the city, and it can attack and defend like an Encampment.
Ceíli in Irish or Cèilidh in Scottish, are traditional Gaelic gatherings popular during the Classical and Medieval Era that reemerged in the XIXth century when Ireland tried to regain it's own cultural identity after it's independence.
The Ceíli Hall could focus on representing the bardic Filí and grant some extra Culture and extra Great Writer and Musician Points
If the Mughals are indeed chosen (which I know it's the Civ least likely to be picked from these five, but let's go with it), then the Mughal Forts are probably gonna be picked as their Unique Structure.
They could either be an Unique Encampment, Fort/Improvement or Renaissance Walls. I am not sure which one they would pick...
The Water Puppet Theater will probably be the pick for the already leaked Vietnam, though I am not quite sure how they will represent it.
I would personally do something akin to the Kabuki Theater mentioned above with some different bonuses, but I can see it being an Improvement, an Amphitheater replacement or even a Unique Theater Square Replacement that need to be placed near water.
The Temple of Literature of Hanoi housed the first Vietnamese University that replicated the Chinese institutions of high learning.
This building could fit various niches, depending on what Vietnam ends up focusing in. It could be focused on Faith/Science, Tourism/Science, Amenities/Science, Great Scientist Points, High Citizen Yields, etc, etc.
The most likely pick for the Babylonian Unique Structure. Not much needs to be said about the Walls of Babylon. They were a massive and wondrous work of Bronze Age Masonry and it's Ishtar Gates were considered a Wonder just by themselves.
The Babylonian Walls will probably be stronger than normal Ancient Walls and make Battering Rams innefective.
And that's it! Those are all of my ideas for a "2nd Unique Structures" mod/addition/whatever. I know it's a prety imbalanced list and it will probably never see the light of day, but it was pretty fun to brainstorm it!
2020.08.22 22:14 500scnds[Table] I am Anthony Fantano, founder of The Needle Drop, and I've been told by Spin that I'm "today's most successful music critic." Some message boards online have also said I'm a meme. Ask me anything!
Do you find it hard to approach music from a different culture of origin? For example, when reviewing K-pop or maybe rap in another language, does not being able to understand the lyrics affect your enjoyment of that music, and does that reflect in your reviews? I thought it would be different when it comes to a single critic, rather than places like Pitchfork who may have a more diverse staff on hand to give opinions.
i'm not gonna lie; it can be. i think i just try to do the best i can do translate what the enjoyable qualities of the album will be for a listener who won't go into it naturally understanding those aspects of it. because music is so steeped in whatever culture it comes from, the types of barriers are going to be there. and that's ok. not everyone can understand and be an expert on everything. and at the end of the day, i'm just trying to engage enjoyment. it doesn't matter of me if i'm enjoying a weezer album or a natalia laforcade album. i'll do my best to state what it is about the album i find to be special.
what era of musical exploration do you feel like was the strongest? as a followup, do you think music is currently headed in a direction that is favorable?
not sure about the first question, tbh.
i think music will continue to move in a good direction as long as the culture it comes from remains in control of its creation and dissemination, not greedy record labels. what we have now isn't perfect, but the internet gives more artists control than before. more control and a fairer financial deal is what artists need to seek otu in the future.
what current movement or genre in music do you think will have the biggest impact going forward over the next decade? what artists specifically will be looked back on in ten years as highly influential to the direction of music?
probably guys like frank ocean or some of these emo trap artists. i know the catalog doesn't seem like much, but they're hitting an emotional nerve with current generations few other artists are.
Hey Anthony, I'm a big fan of your content, so cheers for putting the time in to entertain us all. I'm not sure if you've answered this before, but which review of yours would you most like to change the score of in a retrospective? Has reception of your score ever caused you to reconsider? Thanks again Anthony
a few times, but that desire usually goes away quickly.
Do you think that UK culture makes it harder to understand the messages in UK music?
i don't think UK culture makes it HARDER, but because it's a culture Americans aren't familiar with the dialect seems alien and lingo goes over their heads. so, yeah, it can create a bit of a barrier, i suppose. however, i think that's something people should get over to try and enjoy something that's different and exciting.
I notice that you put emphasis on the mixing and mastering of a song when reviewing, my question is have you ever heard a song that still sounded great even though the mic may have been a little muddy or not up to par with commercial standards?
sure. all the time. how a song is presented sonically is important, but it's not everything. things can still sound a bit "off" and the music still be perfectly good / enjoyable.
Would you ever drop any original music??
probably, but i'm not sure i have any interest in becoming a commercial artist, honestly. i respect the grind and obviously i couldn't be doing anything i'm doing without commercial music existing. i just don't have any interest in making it or promoting it like it's my job or paying my bills depends on it.
What made you start reviewing music and albums in general?
just wanting to share my thoughts and see if i'd get any others in return. covering music professionally just seemed like the most sensible way of making it a part of my life in a way where it could be constant around the time i was trying to forge a career path.

rage against the machine
boyz ii men

what's the best and worst reaction to a review you recieved by a musician?
a very nice e-mail from the guys in WEEN telling me a classic review i did was one of the best they've ever gotten and was more impressive than all the coverage they got through the 90s, LOL!
Do you watch any music reviewers (other than yourself)? If so, who would you recommend?
personally, i like a lot of the content on YT that's more commentary and essay-based. guys like deep cuts, blacky speakz, finn mckenty. i still watch dead end hip hop and spectrum pulse, tho.

also, how have the last several years been going?
gotta say, conservatives really know how to run a country, lol.
main inspiration for reviewing music, melon?
just other youtubers and late 00s content creators "reviewing" things they were passionate about. i figured i wanted to take the music reviewing experience and turn it into that.

Acabei de ouvir o último álbum do Milton e agora posso dizer com tranquilidade que MILTON NASCIMENTO É O MAIOR MÚSICO DO MUNDO. Antes eu pensava q os gringos tinham os melhores albuns: Pink Floyd, The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, sempre me foi dito q isso era o melhor q havia. Hj em dia, graças a Deus, sei q existe coisa melhor, e está no meu país Demorará décadas, quiça séculos, para criarem albuns melhores que desse homem, é o mais próximo de perfeição q eu já ouvi: o canto, a produção, a poesia, o ritmo TUDO é surrealmente de alta qualidade, parece música de outro mundo. Como que não ensinam os albuns dele na escola? Sério, é uma enorme lástima q existam brasileiros q não foram expostos à Clube da Esquina, por exemplo. É uma obra de arte q muda vidas, não há palavras para descrever
2020.07.22 17:01 Muzak_For_A_NurseYour Favorite Prog Artist Tournament: Round 3.2
Hey everyone! We've finished the second group round and we're now moving on to the final bracket, where 32 artists will face off, single-elimination style, until only one winner remains. Sorry for missing yesterday - wifi issues aren't fun. There will be two rounds a day, so look for the other poll once you've voted. Also, please upvote so more people can see the poll and vote. This matchup is the second of sixteen matchups in the third round. But I encourage you to check out a song or two of an artist that you haven't heard of! Or just add albums that appeal to you to your list and check them out whenever you have time! Here are the introductions for today's artists: Dream Theater Subgenre: Progressive Metal "Oh boy! My (old) favorite band! Known for vast instrumental talent from every member, Dream Theater is made up of 4 extreme virtuosos and a solid singer. Despite valid complaints about modern Labrie, I think few people stand up to classic LaBrie. Formed in 1985 with a debut in 1989, while not the first prog metal band, DT are undoubtedly the most influential. I would argue that they are the most influential prog band outside of the 70s. While their first album is great (fight me), images and words put them on the map and is the best album of all time imo. Six degrees and scenes are also among the greatest albums ever. If you like extreme virtuosity, sensible technicality, and solid songwriting, DT is for you. Oh, and octavarium is easily the best song ever written. Recommended tracks: octavarium, breaking all illusions, pale blue dotAnd a change of seasons for recommendedSymphony X What happens if you take dream theater and inject neoclassical power metal? You get SX. Possibly the most loved poweprog band of all time, it’s for good reason. They and Michael Romeo nailed the symphonic aspect all over, and their epics are fantastic. While their newer stuff has been a bit less aggressive, the symphonic stuff gets more and more cinematic each release. Throughout the 90s and early 00s, they rode just behind DT at the forefront of prog metal. They have a top 20 song ever and my favorite verse chorus song ever. Recommended tracks: the odyssey, sea of lies, through the looking glass" from u/notyourlandlord "Dream Theater is one of my favorite bands of all time. They have stayed consistently good since their second album, Images and Words, which essentially launched progressive metal. Some of their works include 2 concept albums (Metropolis Pt. 2: Scenes From A Memory and The Astonishing) and many long epics (A Change of Seasons, Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence, Octavarium, In The Presence of Enemies, The Count of Tuscany, and Illumination Theory). I’m not really good with descriptions, but here is a link with where you should start." from u/USSR_Space_Agency Alan Parsons Project Genre: Progressive Pop/Art Rock The Alan Parsons Project is a British Rock band that creates an atmospheric and groovy sound in a lot of their works. The group consists of Alan Parsons, an audio engineer and producer, and Eric Woolfson, a songwriter and composer. many different musicians joined the group to bring the music to life. some of the notable musicians Andrew Powell - composition, keyboards, and orchestral arrangements The Philharmonia Orchestra Ian Bairnson - guitar David Pack - guitar, vocals, and keyboards Richard Cottle - keyboards and saxophone Alan Parsons was the assistant audio engineer for famous beatles albums "Abbey Road" (1969) and "Let It Be: (1970). He was also an Head Audio Engineer for Pink Floyd's "The Dark Side of The Moon" (1973) and produced serveral acts for EMI Records. Eric Woolfson worked as a session pianist while he composed material for a concept album based on Edgar Alan Poe's work. These concepts would later be the start of The Alan Parsons Project. The groups first Studio Album, "Tales of Mystery and Imagination" took Eric's Concept and created a very atmospheric, groovy, and unforgettable album. Popular Albums consist of "IRobot", "Eye in the Sky", "Pyramid", and "Tales of Mystery and Imagination". Popular Songs consist of "I Wouldn't Wanna Be Like You", "Sirius (The Chicago Bulls Theme)", "Eye In The Sky", "Games People Play", "Damned If I Do", "Time", and "Don't Answer Me". listening through the works of The Alan Parsons Project was a journey. The First Album I listened to was "IRobot "and I fell in love instantly. After listening to it almost every day for about 2 weeks, I knew I had to hear more. Attempts at other albums took time for me but in the end it was worth it. "Pyramid" and "Eye In The Sky were unforgettable experiences and were what got me interested in Alan Parsons' and Eric Woolfson's individual works. Finding out about Alan Parsons contribution to "Abbey Road" and "The Dark Side of the Moon" hyped me up. Those were, by far, my 2 favorite albums for a while. I can safely say that The Alan Parsons Project is one of my All-Time favorite bands. from u/_Guillot_ Tomorrow's matchups: Opeth vs Steely Dan, Steven Wilson vs The Jimi Hendrix Experience (all already have introductions) View Poll
No mais, pode ser qualquer coisa - Belchior, Iron Maiden, Claudinho e Buchecha, 50 Cent, Beatles... Se puderem providenciar os backing tracks das escolhidas, ajuda.

2020.07.08 21:28 SunTzuManyPuppiesAlgumas fotos que tirei na Ìndia
Tenho uma empresa que faz negócios com a Índia, o que me permitiu viajar para lá muitas vezes ao longo dos anos... vou compartilhar nesse post fotos curiosas de uma das viagens. Nessa época, depois de passar duas semanas em Delhi e dar uma passada na Caxemira, fiquei três meses em Rishikesh, que é uma cidade bem pequena, só relaxando, então a maior parte das fotos é de lá. É a cidade onde os Beatles fizeram o retiro deles; tem bastante turista, mas com um perfil diferente do resto da Índia. Normalmente adolescentes hippies europeus fedorentos. A cidade toda é vegetariana, e lá é proibido bebida alcoólica (apesar de que, depois do horário de fechamento, dava pra discretamente tomar uma cerveja com os atendentes de um restaurante que eu frequentava). EDIT: Parece que o Reddit não quer processar as imagens.. então segue link do álbum: https://imgur.com/a/doTEZ7c Macaco Tem milhares de outras fotos, qualquer hora eu separo as mais interessantes e posto
2020.07.07 17:30 Muzak_For_A_NurseYour Favorite Prog Artist Tournament: Round 1.9
Hey everyone! It's time to get the first round of the tournament underway! There will be two rounds a day, so look for the other poll once you've voted. Also, please upvote so more people can see the poll and vote. This matchup is the ninth of sixteen groups in the first round. The top four highest vote-getters will advance to the next round. In this tournament, it's ok to vote against artists you haven't heard. But I encourage you to check out a song or two of an artist that grabs your attention! Or just add albums that appeal to you to your list and check them out whenever you have time! Yesterday's results: I realized I could just put them in the table rather than typing everything out. In case you're wondering, the left column is the original seed, then the artist name (obviously), then the raw number of votes, percentage of votes, and then seed going into the next round. Here are the introductions for today's artists. I encourage you to write an introduction for some of your favorite artists that are coming up tomorrow! Dream Theater Subgenre: Progressive Metal "Oh boy! My (old) favorite band! Known for vast instrumental talent from every member, Dream Theater is made up of 4 extreme virtuosos and a solid singer.

I’m not really good with descriptions, but here is a link with where you should start." from u/USSR_Space_Agency Marillion Subgenre: Neo-Prog "Marillion is the main group in the neo-prog movement, and therefore, arguably the biggest prog band of the 80s. Fantastic keyboard and synth is one of the hallmarks, along with great vocals (courtesy of Fish early on), this group played around with a more poppy feel while remaining a solid prog band. They have many albums, and most are concepts. While they have a couple really low points imo, they were actually pretty consistent. The clear highlight of Marillion for me is bass from Pete Trewevas (also of transatlantic later). His bass is prominent in the mix and fantastic. If you wanna try neoprog, go no farther than Misplaced Childhood. One of my top 5 albums of the 80s. Recommended tracks: all of misplaced childhood. Especially Kayleigh" from u/notyourlandlord The Beatles Subgenre: Progressive Pop (but don't you know them already?) "The Beatles, a group of boys from Liverpool who started out in early 60s britpop with hits like ‘Please Please Me’, found fame grew into the most popular band in the world all before hitting the turn into their experimental/psychedelic/progressive phase generally considered to begin with the albums Rubber Soul and Revolver in 1965/66. Song topics ranged from burning a woman’s house down after a failed one night stand (Norwegian Wood) to tax collection (Taxman) to Leary’s Tibetan notion of the Void (Tomorrow Never Knows). The latter track was hailed as being the first to ever put ‘psychedelia’ to sound in song, incorporating backward tapes, repeated sound effects, and electronic distortion. They would go on to explore genres and integrate their experimentation into songs unlike much else from their time, which can be heard in songs such as A Day in the Life, Being For the Benefit or Mr. Kite, Blue Jay Way, Helter Skelter, Happiness is a Warm Gun, I Want You (She’s So Heavy), and the Abbey Road medley. The Beatles were less progressive in single songs with multiple sections, instead popifying the philosophy into several 3 minute tunes across decidedly progressive albums. If you’re (somehow) unfamiliar with their work, I’d recommend starting at their magnum opus, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, and exploring outward from there." from u/GruntledMaker "The Beatles are, even when subtracting the hype, one of the most genuinely innovative musical acts of the 20th century. Their strength lied in embracing and packaging for a wide audience (undoubtedly the widest audience, at their peak) an extreme range of musical influences, including but not limited to: rockabilly, skiffle, blues, jazz, reggae, folk, country, classical, music hall, psychedelic, and traditional Indian. At all points of their career, expect for Let It Be, they were produced by George Martin, a classical arranger who strongly enabled that classical influence that sets apart so many prog rockers. The Beatles weren't the most prodigious at their instruments, and they weren't always the first to incorporate the techniques they popularized, but their strength lied in an extremely appealing charm, a 'common man' kind of air, and a near-innate sense of what makes music sound fun to the average person. They were a gateway to a much wider world. Undoubtedly, they began the trend of incorporating oriental instrumentation into rock music (think Danny Carey's love of Indian-esque percussion sounds), the idea of a 'concept album' with Sgt. Pepper's (leaving them free to experiment with music that didn't fit their "image" as the Beatles), and the Abbey Road medley was likely the first time a wide swath of pop music listeners heard a 15-minute-plus piece connected at beginning and end by repeating motifs (not to mention the extended jam incorporating two separate melodies - "I Want You" - off the same album). In short, it's likely prog would be a lot poorer without the frantic, genre-defying experimentation of the Beatles' mid-to-late career." from u/Astrosimi Riverside Subgenre: Heavy Prog/Progressive Metal No blurb, so copied the wiki again. Feel free to write one: Riverside is a progressive rockband from Warsaw, Poland. It was founded in 2001 by friends Mariusz Duda, Piotr Grudziński, Piotr Kozieradzki and Jacek Melnicki, who shared a love for progressive rock and heavy metal, although Duda, the main lyricist and composer of the band, was originally a fan of electronic, ambient and experimental music, like Radiohead, Massive Attack, Dead Can Dance, Tangerine Dream, and Peter Gabriel.#cite_note-1)Riverside can be described as a blend of atmospheric rock and metal elements, resulting in a sound similar to that of Porcupine Tree, The Mars Volta, Opeth, and Dream Theater, while still maintaining an identity of their own. Symphony X Subgenre: Progressive Power Metal "What happens if you take dream theater and inject neoclassical power metal? You get SX. Possibly the most loved poweprog band of all time, it’s for good reason. They and Michael Romeo nailed the symphonic aspect all over, and their epics are fantastic. While their newer stuff has been a bit less aggressive, the symphonic stuff gets more and more cinematic each release. Throughout the 90s and early 00s, they rode just behind DT at the forefront of prog metal. They have a top 20 song ever and my favorite verse chorus song ever. Recommended tracks: the odyssey, sea of lies, through the looking glass" from u/notyourlandlord Sigur Rós Subgenre: Post-Rock/Dream Pop No one wrote an intro for them, so I got it. If you've ever seen pictures of Iceland (or been there), you know it's unbelievably beautiful. Basically, Sigur Rós is the musical representation of the beauty of their home country of Iceland. Jonsí's uniquely high yet still powerful voice is addictive, and his violin-bowed guitar playing sounds right out of a dream. The band's lyrics are in the made up language of "Hopelandic," but it just sounds like Icelandic. Sigur Rós will make you cry tears of joy. FWIW, they're much bigger outside the prog scene than in it, but their music certainly appeals to progheads. I'd recommend the albums Takk... or Agaetis Byrjun. Songwise, you can't go wrong with Svefn-g-englar, Flugelsarinn, Untitled 7 or 8, Hoppipolla, or Sægelopur (my favorite). Tomorrow's artists - feel free to write an intro!

2020.06.17 23:09 Wise-WaferEsse negócio de que não existe arte melhor ou pior é bullshit?
Tipo, sem querer julgar, mas as músicas de hoje estão um tanto quanto...comerciais e sem talento, por assim dizer. Ok, explicarei melhor. Imagine que você quer ser um cantor na década de 1980. Bom, para fazer sucesso você precisa muito de sorte e uma habilidade muito importante, tocar um instrumento, que pode ser violão, piano, guitarra, bateria ou as próprias cordas vocais. Além disso teria que escrever as próprias músicas e então mostrá-las de algum jeito à população, seja por meio de rádios ou festas (ou tv, se tiver mais sorte ainda). Com toda essa dificuldade, só se o cara fosse realmente talentoso que faria sucesso ou demonstraria que é bom no que faz. Muitos ou desistiam ou fracassavam, pois era muito difícil. Mas, hoje o cenário mudou. Com o advento da tecnologia você não precisa tocar nenhum instrumento, e muito menos escrever a música, o produtor faz isso para você. Acho que a música brasileira mainstream decaiu não porque estamos na pior geração (odeio quando falam isso), mas sim porque demos voz aos piores, que antes teriam muitas dificuldades de progredir na carreira, justamente pela falta de talento. Quem fala que música brasileira 'piorou' é porque não pesquisa direito, pois temos muitos talentos que não chegam ao mainstream. E isso acontece com o funk, nem todos os funks são ruins, mas boa parte deles são. Alguns falam da realidade das favelas, uma puta crítica social que o Brasil precisa. Mas não podemos esquecer das porcalhadas que muitos artistas fazem, músicas que só estando louco de LSD com cocaína que ficam legais. Exemplo: MC Loma - Envolvimento. Essa música mais do que prova que hoje qualquer um, mesmo que desafinado, consegue fazer sucesso. Os efeitos nas vozes não são um problema, os Beatles faziam isso na década de 1960. John Lennon colocava efeitos em sua voz, pois não gostava do modo que soava (mesmo tendo muito talento). Mas mesmo assim as músicas eram profundas, e os caras manjavam muito na parte técnica e foram inovadores no processo de edição de áudio. Mas essa crítica não vai apenas a nossa querida periferia não. Músicos como Hanz Zimmer também estão sofrendo com a 'simplificação' em virtude da venda. Hoje não temos mais uma boa melodia, as músicas estão ficando cada vez mais comerciais, como se respeitassem uma métrica. Talvez, um dos fatores para isso é a própria internet e a cultura do 'agora' fabricada por ela. Queremos as coisas em um instante, em um clique. Ninguém quer mais a reflexão, querem logo a ação pois querem o hoje. Músicas com batidas simples e com melodia fraca são mais interessantes, do que aquelas são justamente o oposto. Hoje uma música de 10 minutos não tem tanto apelo quanto uma de 3, pois as pessoas querem consumir as coisas de um jeito rápido. E tudo isso favoreceu esses artistas mais simples, que sabem o senso comum pois já vivem nele. Eu sei, eu sei, não se julga arte, nem uma é melhor que a outra. Mas será? E se essa história de que não dar para julgar foi colocada em nossas cabeças, para que não pensemos ativamente e contestar 'espere um pouco, isso não faz sentido, isso é baixo'?. Todo mundo tem um gosto e merece ser respeitado, mas será que alguns gostos são melhores que outros? Edit: arrumei uma parte que ficou estranha.
2020.06.15 22:07 jotapetoupsFilme perdido do Elvis
Quando começaram a sair os trailers e as noticias sobre o filme "Yesterday", tive a estranha sensação de já ter visto aquilo em algum lugar( pra quem não sabe o filme gira em torno de depois de um acontecimento so um cara lembra dos beatles então ele toca as musicas dos mesmo como se fossem dele), desenterrando minhas memorias lembrei de onde foi. Era de um filme nacional que o protagonista é um cover do Elvis Presley que ( se não me engano) depois de um acidente só ele lembra do Elvis e assim como em Yesterday ele começa a tocar suas musicas. A questão é que eu não consigo encontrar nada na internet, nem em lugar algum sobre esse filme, pra todo mundo que eu falo sobre ele me diz que não faz ideia de que filme é esse. Estou começando a achar que sou louco. Algumas outras informações sobre: Vi esse filme a bastante tempo (talvez uns 10 anos) Tenho quase certeza que vi na TV aberta O nome "Eu não sou o Elvis" estranhamente me vem a cabeça quando penso nele (mas quando pesquiso isso no google não aparece nada sobre)
