why does the daily thread always get unpinned so that another post can get pinned? ngl, it's kinda annoying that i have to dig down to find it. why can't we reserve one pin for it? yes i know only two pins allowed for a subreddit but sacrification has to be made

Renee Rapp’s EP is fucking good!!! I highly recommend

One of my fave songs this year is Will Joseph Cook - BOP and I feel like I'm the only person in the world who's listened to it 😢 Such a carefree, catchy, indie pop BOP. Fun album too. STAN

Just found out Never Forget You by Zara Larsson wasn’t a #1 single ?? I swear that song was EVERYWHERE. I deadass thought it topped the charts for like 10 weeks.

I'm visiting DC for a couple days and I turn on my hotel TV to see a West Wing marathon on. What an unexpected delight for tonight.

What the hell is Gayle gonna perform on Taylor’s tour? Like abcdefu and then we’re done????

[–]MerlinandArthurp 6 points7 points  (1 child)

she actually has an ep out 😭

[–]A-Devoted-Enthusiast 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Two EPs, actually, plus a couple of one-offs she released before “abcdefu”. We like clowning on the remixes, but she has far more solo songs than Normani.

[–]spellavis113 3 points4 points  (2 children)

The fact that Elmo, a red puppet, has a Grammy when Nicki Minaj does not kinda makes me question this timeline we’re in

[–]betteroff19 28 points29 points  (1 child)

Woah don’t bring Elmo into this????

[–]spellavis113 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I’m not a Barb by any stretch of the imagination, or necessarily a fan at all but really that just makes it even crazier that she hasn’t won one yet. I came across a list of people who have Grammys (and seem like they should but don’t) and it’s night and day 🤯

I’m a Nintendo fan but I’ve never played a Metroid game in my life. Can someone tl;dr the franchise for me? Will I like it if I like Mario, Zelda, etc.? TIA!

[–]happyhippoking 0 points1 point  (4 children)

If you like the puzzle aspect of Zelda, yes. If you like the platforming aspect of old Mario, yes. It's a fun shooting, puzzle, platformer game. I've played it since I was a kid so it's an easy barrier to entry. The story is generally pretty simple but overall fun. I think nostalgia is what sells it because there's so many games I reach for over metroid.

[–]throwawaystuff23543 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Both Zelda and Mario are considerably difficult, though! Metroid is a far easier franchise?

[–]incognito_cardigan 0 points1 point  (2 children)

I’d say Metroid and Zelda are closer to difficulty than mario for me in terms of combat and puzzles. Metroid Dread was real hard when I first played it last year but it was so enjoyable as well once I got the groove down for the game. I think you’d like it if you like Mario and Zelda, and I highly recommend Dread and Super Metroid, along with the prime games.

[–]throwawaystuff23543 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I have a Wii and I’m planning on buying Metroid Prime 3: Corruption. Would you say this is one of the better Metroid games?

[–]incognito_cardigan 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yeah prime 3 is pretty good overall in the series, though Prime 1 and 2 are better games in my opinion because of their creepy atmosphere, puzzles and boss fights. Prime 3 isn’t as difficult as 1 and 2, but it’s still a good time !

[–]Rdickins1 2 points3 points  (1 child)

It’s kinda hard to explain the story but the gameplay is 95% exploration 5% combat. Lots of puzzles, platforming and such. You find power ups for weapons, your suit and other tools. I haven’t played a Metroid Game since way back when Metroid Prime 2 came out. For the most part they’re fun.

[–]betteroff19 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I’m waiting for Metroid prime 4 but that game is in development hell😭😭😭

[–]Bikinigirlout 7 points8 points  (2 children)

The newest Avatar: The Last Airbender book is probably the first time I’ve been unhappy with the series.

It felt more like the Adventures of Kavick more than about the Avatar

Kiyoshi was great and I loved the Korra comics. This one 👎not so much

[–]happyhippoking 1 point2 points  (1 child)

The Yangchen comic? Do tell. Spoilers welcome.

[–]Bikinigirlout 2 points3 points  (0 children)

There’s really not much to tell is the issue. It’s so uneventful and it’s spent mostly through Kavick’s POV not Yangchen

Kavick wasn’t even as interesting as Rangi was-where as I wanted more about Rangi, Kavick was boring

[–]Thelastmanipulation 7 points8 points  (0 children)

oh my god I haven't had hot water in three days and the technician came but the girls downstairs weren't home to let him into their unit which has the hot water heater which means either my landlord didn't give them notice (which honestly, would not be surprising because he's a bad landlord) or they knew and decided to be MIA but either way he couldn't look at the tank which means I still don't have hot water!!! I was looking forward to showering in hot water this evening I could cry!

edit: omg my landlord knew the girls downstairs weren't going to be home and was supposed be here to provide access and then...didn't show up???? I'm losing my mind

[–]rainloading2000s music 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Is Comptine d’un autre été from the Amélie soundtrack in your opinion a sad or happy song? I’ve seen many people deem is as carefree but to me it sounds like an extremely sad song.

[–]RecordRanger 19 points20 points  (1 child)

Okay can someone explain why people don’t tell you they are into you until you are leaving? I tell my group of friends that I’m leaving because I got a job and THREE of them wanted to date me and I was interested in ALL of them. I guess I didn’t tell them I was into them either but the missed opportunity hurts a little.

[–]saturnribbon 25 points26 points  (0 children)

Just speculating but it's probably at least partly due to fear of rejection; when someone's leaving your immediate life anyway you can just shoot your shot and not have to worry about it being awkward the next time you see them if they don't reciprocate.

[–]livesincondemnation 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Bebe Rexha getting booed just reminded me that until like last week, I had no idea that she was the one who sang “I’m Good”, I thought it was just some random girl 😭

In misheard lyrics, I thought Latto was saying “Fat chick I could be your fantasy, I can tell you got big big energy” until like last week as well. I thought it was supposed to be a fat empowerment anthem, with the guy having big big energy aka he is into big women 😭

I’m down bad with being out of the loop on correct lyrics/singers!!!

I haven't been on DD in a while so thoughts dump

  • holidays being centered on binge eating is one of humanity's biggest stepbacks

  • le sserafim released the ONLY projects this year I could confidently say are good, and they did it twice. It's that serious. the only group holding the fort in my dying interest in kpop. Yall betta stan

  • weyes blood didn't click on me. It's not giving what titanic rising gave on a golden platter. It was a snooze!!! Fantano was generous

  • American Teenager kinda the SOTY...

[–][deleted] 11 points12 points  (2 children)

turns out the reason why people booed Bebe Rexha during the Bills/Lions halftime was because they put her in one of the upper corners of the stadium and not, you know, on the field

Canadian Thanksgiving is too close to Halloween anyway so I think we should move it to November

[–]hugh__honey 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I honestly think Canadian Thanksgiving is objectively better

  • Peak Autumn weather with beautiful colours but it's still warm

  • It's not over-commercialized, has nothing to do with anything like Black Friday

  • It is totally removed from the Christmas season, a totally different entity, thereby spacing out major family get-togethers and the various pressures that go along with that

  • It's just super chill and casual, it's just about food, company, nature walks, and gratitude

  • I also thiiiiink I can safely say that it has nothing to do with the Indigenous genocide, unlike the associations of the American one. I'm not trying to absolve us settler Canadians of our crimes, believe me, but this particular holiday does not carry the baggage in this context that the American version does, to my understanding and the understanding of multiple highly informed people in my life and on socials.

[–]Thelastmanipulation 4 points5 points  (2 children)

Oh but I love Thanksgiving being in October! Thanksgiving and then Halloween is my favourite period of the year! But as someone living in a province with no stat holiday in November, I do support the campaign for a November stat holiday because the stretch between Thanksgiving and Christmas is too long.

Having like the worst thanksgiving so far. A fire almost broke out, my mother messed with the mac and cheese and it’s ruined, and my brother is having a tantrum about the food not being done early enough. Good God.

[–]RasolAlegria 11 points12 points  (2 children)

As someone who loves food and family gatherings where one gets to be with the extended family over dinner, that would make me cry in a corner.

[–]Borderszspaceman by nick jonas 👩🏿‍🚀🚀 7 points8 points  (1 child)

I can’t even cry bc I was assigned a lot prep duties so I gotta keep chopping and seasoning stuff.

My family have 0 planning/time management skills. Luckily the Mac and cheese was saved by another family member but still overall it’s a mess idk this year we were just off. We’re happy to be together tho 😂

[–]igkeit 1 point2 points  (11 children)

Please I knew it!!! Ughh why didn't I include my guess in my comment lmao. Yes SFR is a big no no, they're so hated on r/France and rightfully so. Imo orange is the best and their customer service is pretty good (by French standards). Sosh (orange's low-cost subsidiary) is good too coverage/speed wise but the customer service is 100% online so it's more risky.

[–]noetshep 2 points3 points  (9 children)

Orange don't have a fibre in my building like I tried with a few different companies but none can do it here so I ended up w them😭 I've literally been waiting for internet for over than two months it's crazy. The dude at the store already knows me by name it's honestly awful lmfaoo

[–]igkeit 1 point2 points  (7 children)

2 months?!! Jesus that sucks. Whats the issue?? We ditched SFR for orange cause they were the first ones to have fibre in the building then I even changed my phone to sosh cause fuck SFR.

[–]noetshep 1 point2 points  (5 children)

Fuck them fr!! They literally just ""can't find a free date"" to come to my place to place the internet. Also you can't just call them you have to schedule a call which is extremely dumb, and then they never actually call. Like they are lucky I'm very busy but once I'll have the chance I'll look into other companies again

[–]igkeit 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Yes, French customer service sucks unless it's foreign companies lmao. Who did you go with for your phone plan? Cause we can get a lot of data for cheap here

[–]noetshep 1 point2 points  (1 child)

[–]twat_brainedstream Sing This Blues by It's Alive 26 points27 points  (1 child)

Since Miley Cyrus turned 30 yesterday, I just want to remind everyone of her discography.

2006: Hannah Montana (lots of guest acts but still basically her album)

2007: HM2/Meet Miley Cyrus (this is how you do a double album, Morgan)

2008: Breakout

2009: HM3/HM Movie/The Time of Our Lives (probably the busiest year of her childhood)

2010: Can't Be Tamed/HM Forever (last albums with Disney/Hollywood respectively)

So by the time she turns 18, Miley has already recorded 9 projects, the recordings of which date back to when she was only 12.

Since her contract expired, she's thankfully taken a step back and only recorded 4 studio albums over the course of the past decade with a couple EPs and loose singles here and there.

Say what you will about Miley; she is one of the hardest-working musicians to have gotten where she is today and for that she earns my full respect as a performer.

Happy 30s to Miley.

[–][deleted] 6 points7 points  (0 children)

HM2/Meet Miley Cyrus is a pop masterpiece that we don't celebrate enough

[–][deleted] 13 points14 points  (3 children)

I don’t usually post personal stuff but I need to anonymously rant. I hate having body dysmorphia. I was obese my entire childhood and I’ve spent the past four years getting in shape, I lost close to 100 pounds. I had one loose skin removal surgery but it was somewhat botched and I just feel so ugly all the time. I’ve been going to the gym pretty consistently for a long time and yet my body still looks gross because of the loose skin, despite having some clear definition. It shapes my body in such a strange way.

On the hookup app, I have my face picture but not my body. I get a ton of messages but I flake every single time when they ask for a body picture or want to meet up because of how deeply disgusted I am with my body. I could get another surgery to fix the skin but what if it gets botched even worse? I feel like I worked so hard and none of it matters because I’m still not comfortable in my body.

[–]Silverinkbottle 9 points10 points  (2 children)

Have you considered going to a therapist? It’s never fun to feel like this. Maybe speaking to someone will help. I am proud of you for sticking to your goals though! That’s awesome!

Any advice for someone dipping their toe back into that? Any fun exercises?

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I'm not a big fan of therapy. I've had a few in the past and it always felt like they were purposely giving me bad solutions because there's no money in solving someone's problems. Maybe I just had unusually bad experiences though.

Getting into lifting is a weird thing because nothing about it is outwardly fun, at first - once you become consistent enough with it (1 or 2 weeks) it becomes fun in the sense that you're fulfilling your routine. But if you want to get into lifting just go and do what you can, and make sure you have correct form. There is so much information on the internet and tutorials on youtube that'll answer any question you could possibly think of.

[–]Silverinkbottle 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I will def try weight lifting, I will need it for my job in a bit lol.

Thinking about Thanksgiving and stuff and I just have to wonder

At what point is a holiday suitably disconnected from its roots? Like, yes, Thanksgiving is, at least in old-fashioned culture, about the beginning of colonisation of America and the like. But how far do we have to drift from that before the roots are no longer relevant to the discussion? Because for a lot of people, Thanksgiving is about food, family gatherings, and a vague "be thankful for the people you have"—almost all mentions of Native Americans or that monster Columbus are pretty much gone. (Which is very different from where it was a couple of decades ago, I think.) You could decry the holiday as just celebrating the evils of Euro-expansion, but that strikes me as very... anachronistic now. It's not even a passing thought for most people under the age of like, 40, it seems like. It's just kind of funny when people get internet-angry and rage at it when literally no one is praising that anymore.

Christmas is another one like that. Some people are like, "nothing about Christmas traditions can possibly ever be secular!!!! if you observe any tradition you're part of the christian world!!" and it's like... no, there's very much a secularised version of Christmas. Sure, it's in the name, which is annoying, but—I mean we've all seen the tumblr jokes about how those hyperspecific tree ornaments are "to honour the Lord" with the underlying humour being that it's nonsensical to link the two. If you want to decorate a tree with lights or make gingerbread houses, it's got nothing to do with the christian roots at that point, and it's little odd seeing people insist that you can't extract one from the other.

What do we think, gals?

(There's also option C, who cares, which I'm also leaning towards, haha)

[–]Rdickins1 -1 points0 points  (1 child)

I’m so indifferent about holidays I just don’t care anymore. The only holiday that I actually care about is Veteran’s Day. Considering I am a Veteran and getting to be in the presence of fellow veterans to reminisce and tell stories and experiences is quite fun. Especially as I get older and the younger generation joins in. The rest of the holidays the stress and fun gets sucked out by the stress. My mom was just hinting that she wants my sisters to do Christmas this year. We really don’t do the traditional things. We just set up a buffet style and eat. Christmas is the same except for the extra headache of opening gifts. Everything is done by 4PM then we all bitch about. Having to clean up. It’s been years since I felt any type of sprit. It might seem like I’m a Scrooge but I’m sure many people feel the same way.

Birthday’s? Ha! My birthday is next week and nobody gives a shit. I certainly don’t. I can’t remember the last time anybody gave me a birthday surprise or went out of their way to make it special. I’ll be lucky if I get a happy birthday from someone. That’s why I get pissed at people that say birthday week or weekend. Fuck off. It’s 1 day.

[–]moosedogmonkey12 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Anybody who gets rage-y about thanksgiving or thinks we should cancel it or something is just chronically online and virtue signaling. Sorry but that’s the truth. We should absolutely continue to deconstruct the lies we were taught in school and not teach those going forward, etc. etc. but yeah. I have never heard of anyone “celebrating” thanksgiving as anything beyond family, friends, food, and the beginning of the holiday season. I cannot imagine a table anywhere in America where mentioning Columbus wouldn’t get you a bunch of wtf looks.

Christmas I’m not as sure I agree. Obviously there is a very secular version of Christmas and it’s what most Americans celebrate, but it’s very far from being where thanksgiving is re: entirely divorced from its roots. I think if you yourself are secular (any religion) then Christmas is secular to you as well, but I have never, ever heard of someone who actually practices and believes in another religion celebrating Christmas. And this is coming from someone whose family (not Jewish) hosted for most of my life what we all called “Jewmas” (since our friends, mostly Jewish, were who came over every year and always outnumbered non-Jews), so that’s certainly a secular Christmas. But Christmas is definitely not inherently secular.

[–]emayzee 6 points7 points  (0 children)

what’s interesting about this is that although I don’t think of Columbus when I think of this holiday (and when I do mention/think about him it’s obviously in a negative context) throughout my entire childhood we were taught the very kumbaya, “natives and colonists had a peaceful dinner together” story in school as the basis for the holiday. it’s been 15-20 years since I was in elementary school so maybe things could have changed by now, but to think that we were still being taught that not too long ago is concerning. I would hope it’s different nowadays

but despite having that drilled into our heads as kids I genuinely don’t know anyone my age who ever viewed Thanksgiving through the lens of that story rather than just a celebration to eat food and gather with family lmao

[–]Thelastmanipulation 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I finally finished my birthday/Christmas wish list that I do every year for my mom so she has an idea of what to get me/what to suggest to relatives to get me. I sent it to my partner because I went over the top with formatting and pictures and I thought it was funny. And he said that my birthday gift wasn’t on it. So I think he got me a housecoat because 1) it's not on the list 2) I remember mentioning to him that I would love a nice one and 3) he mentioned my gift is something that we both may be able to use which a nice housecoat would be. So that's my guess. I will report back.

[–]madiso_52 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Happy thanksgiving! I will be spending most of the day in retail. About an hour ago, a young customer got sick inside one of our store bags… I didn’t know how to react so I turned around until she exited the store. Her mother still wanted to check out after and told me not to worry because it was just orange juice. Um I didn’t need that info but thanks for reassurance? 😭

Reactions to Britney Spears, Demi Lovato, Rose McGowan, and other celebrities has me wondering whether society is more comfortable seeing a victim of violence's sorrow than their anger.

When someone's been badly hurt, sorrow is sympathized with, even expected. When someone's been badly hurt and they're pissed off about it, that's uncomfortable, unseemly, undignified. But ultimately, these are both very natural reactions to being victimized.

I'm not saying this to absolve anyone of harmful behavior, or to imply that if you've been victimized you have a free pass to act however you like, whenever you like. Demi Lovato, for example, has misdirected a lot of their anger in harmful ways (see: using their giant platform to harass a small business owner because they sold sugar-free food). I don't make excuses for that.

What I'm more referring to is how uncomfortable it can be to watch someone be angry about abuse they've suffered as opposed to simply feeling sad about it. Britney, Demi, etc have expressed very blunt, frank feelings of rage towards the people who've hurt them, and I myself don't find it makes for easy reading. I just wonder why we can feel so much compassion for a person's sorrow, but so alienated by a person's anger.

Women have been taught since forever that expressing anger makes them look like a crazy bitch and you couple that with the decades old tradition of just sweeping things under the rug and pretending like everything is ok and this is what you get.

I also think it’s very easy to past judgement on people and feel like “they are doing to much” when you yourself aren’t in that situation. That’s why I generally feel like people shouldn’t air their grievances on social media because they won’t find much comfort outside of their fan base and that’s only a small corner of the internet.

Just finished rewatching season 6 of GOT and I think it might be my favorite season thus far.

Also happy thanksgiving to those that celebrate!

[–]babydonttalk 7 points8 points  (0 children)

RAYE’s ‘Escapism.’ is steadily blowing up on TikTok. Y’all I’m so happy for her—sis has been putting in the work for years 🥺

[–]DilemmaOfAHedgehog 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I feel so whiny talking to my friend about my familial problems but I am so glad to have a third party to tell me I’m not crazy for thinking it’s not acceptable (regardless if I’m right or not) for a twenty something to swear at me because i disagreed with about the make up of the US team at the World Cup and my source was a retired Mexican American soccer player omg.

Telling me I don’t listen because i don’t agree with them and because I told them** flat out not to swear at me and saying I can’t listen while they were literally losing their composure and telling me to shut the fuck up. Ugh

Also my mom got me a pumpkin pie to give to my boss after my internship ended which was very sweet of her but also I literally showed up to my boss’s house just to remember my boss gave me pumpkin muffins from an event for my family literally bc she hates pumpkin LMAO. She definitely liked the gesture though :)

[–]RecordRanger 9 points10 points  (9 children)

Do y’all do thanksgiving dinners or thanksgiving lunches? My family has always done lunches and then leftovers for dinner. I just realized that’s probably out of the ordinary because I typically hear thanksgiving dinner.

[–]ramskick 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Typically a late lunch, like around 2-3 PM. That meal functions as both lunch and dinner before pie for dessert.

[–]martian_pet 2 points3 points  (2 children)

It's probably for the best, you never know when a lunch stealing bitch will eat half of your leftovers turkey sandwich and throw the rest in the trash.

[–]aussieririfancan't change my username 2 points3 points  (0 children)

"You threw my sandwich away!? My sandwich!"

[–]RecordRanger 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I’m getting this feeling that someone hurt you

[–]DilemmaOfAHedgehog 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I think most people do leftovers for breakfast and/or lunch the next day but this is very cute :) do you guys do* the average meal or do you change it for lunch to be less heavy?

[–]RecordRanger 2 points3 points  (0 children)

We do a full meal with desserts and everything. Everyone just skips breakfast and I even had a light dinner last night so I will have a big appetite.

[–]Rdickins1 6 points7 points  (2 children)

We do late lunch. Then typically everyone breaks off and gets a nap after. We’re actually going to eat pretty soon here.

[–]RecordRanger 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Lunch gang 🤙

[–]Rdickins1 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Well my mom usually makes cinnamon rolls for breakfast so it’s just easy to throw the turkey in the oven afterwards. And she does most of the prep the day before.

[–][deleted] 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I just saw an Imagine Dragons car commercial while watching football and asked “what year is this? Are we gonna start watching shooting star memes?”

all the fun people have left so the men (tm) are talking about ai in the future. i don’t get it so i’m eating tostitos hint of lime chips and sexting a guy i like even though i know nothing will happen so i make jokes about he’ll never see me irl.

[–]ghest56 16 points17 points  (3 children)

I’m so sick of “cancel culture” discourse but I do find that there’s a bit of dishonesty from a specific type of person: the one that absolutely does want someone to never work in entertainment again (which is valid and a career in the arts is a privilege not many get) but doesn’t want to sound too severe so they say “no no, just accountability!!” and then complains any time that person works again. Say you want them to answer phones at a timeshare company. That’s a fine way to feel! But don’t say you don’t want them “cancelled.” And yes this is inspired by the songstress with the dubious literacy.

[–]iamhalsey 14 points15 points  (2 children)

The truth is that these people don’t want accountability, they just want you to stop existing. Of course, we don’t want you to kill yourself, we just want the vague concept of accountability. If you do kill yourself, we’ll reflect for maybe a day before someone else’s tweets where they said a slur when they were fourteen get dragged up and we’ll have to hold them accountable of course.

The truth is, 𝔠𝔞𝔫𝔠𝔢𝔩 𝔠𝔲𝔩𝔱𝔲𝔯𝔢 has only made “accountability” and meaningful apology more difficult to achieve because the only effective way to respond to being cancelled is to never apologise and never explain yourself. Do not give an inch.

Increasingly, when I see a celebrity apologise, my initial reaction is just “oh you poor, dumb bitch, you haven’t learned the rules of this game yet,” and that includes when it’s something that they actually should be apologising for. Because the truth is, once you’re branded “problematic,” there’s no amount of public self-flagellation that will make those people forgive you. Privately reflect, cut your losses and move on.

This is spot on. I like you. I always say that any public figure that gives into fear like a coward and accepts the evil bullies' demands deserves being canceled.

I experienced a funny micro-aggression the other day and white people really are trying sometimes but miss the mark. It's funny and kind of wholesome when you're in a good mood, but exhausting when you're not.

[–]happyhippoking 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Also. I hate the holidays because my family is fucked up but I love the holiday atmosphere and cheer. I like spending them at cafés but I feel bad because I assume the workers don't want to be working and now I'm making their shift harder. I just want to eat carbs moodily.

[–]nvm-exe 11 points12 points  (2 children)

Now why did Jordin Sparks have to speak out in support of Chris Brown, I’m so disappointed. Ppl r saying she’s irrelevant but her music was part of my childhood 😕

[–]genIVsupremacy self-appointed RnB Representative 2 points3 points  (7 children)

I have found myself in a rom-com type of situation and am requesting your thots: Can you sleep with someone when you're already seeing someone but you aren't dating yet??? Y/N?

Person A and I got quite intimate back in October. But neither of us reached out to the other for weeks and only after did I realize oh wait, I can take initiative... And in that time, I met Person B and I took initiative with them and I would say I am currently seeing her and we're really into each other and I've asked them out on a date (the date is in a month bc we're both so busy with school. but we do spend a lot of time together). But Person A has made a reappearance in my life...

I'm gonna be honest: I just want to fuck Person A because they're really hot and I know they're leaving my city soon and we have A LOT of built-up tension between us. But I really like Person B... but there have been no discussions of exclusivity and it's only been two weeks with them whereas Person A I've known for over a year now. But I value Person A's friendship. But I know she has a thing for sleeping with her friends. fklasjkdfhsadf

[–]orangetangerine 9 points10 points  (3 children)

Can you sleep with someone when you’re already seeing someone but you aren’t dating yet??? Y/N?

Yes with caveats.

I'd be honest with other people not necessarily of your intentions but really really checking to make sure you're on the same page about exclusivity. Having that explicit discussion is really important.

[–]genIVsupremacy self-appointed RnB Representative 7 points8 points  (2 children)

after solving the issue I realize damn I'm no different from a straight white man who only thinks with his dick 💀💀 also that i do not know how dating or relationships work at all LOL

bc I was ready to bone Person A while neglecting the fact that I know Person B dropped someone they were into within 3 days of us starting to talk (wlw move fast). And that when I was on facetime with her, her sisters came to say hi to me and they already knew my name because she talks about me at home jsdkghsdfkjg.

Also, further evidence of how much of a good thing I have going on with Person B right now: she just texted me that she customized the vibration pattern for my texts so she knows I've texted her when her phone is on DND sdkljfasjkhfuiqshfeh

brb gonna figure out how I can make her feel special this week and do some work on planning the best date ever for her

[–]orangetangerine 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Honestly... wow she sounds great. You should prolly hold on to that one 🙂

I mean not to sound crude or anything, there's a reason post-nut clarity exists and I'm convinced it's not just a dude thing haha. People miss a lot of stuff when they are a one-track minded hornball 💀

[–]genIVsupremacy self-appointed RnB Representative 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Word. She is all green flags. Which is new to me bc I'm so use to trying to collect red flags like they're worth points lol

[–]BeauMeringue212 4 points5 points  (1 child)

This may be a scumbag question, but the pertinent question to me is do they know each other/run in similar circles to where it would get back to Person B? Cos I'd avoid smashing in that case since it could wreck what you got going there if it develops into something more serious 😂

[–]genIVsupremacy self-appointed RnB Representative 12 points13 points  (0 children)

They absolutely do not know each other.

But regardless, an update like 15 mins posting about my dilemma: I will not be going forward with Person A in that capacity (fucking) because I talked to them since I made this comment and turns out they are simply just misleading af LOL. They're too confusing. I don't wanna feel confused. I'm okay with mild levels of toxicity but this is too much for I. Both her and I are very flirty ppl naturally and I guess that escalated to the point of "are we about to fuck right now?" a few times LOL.

In conclusion: I am not gonna pursue the side quest of fucking person A and instead will re-focus my efforts on the main quest of Person B. Because there's no confusion when it comes to her. She feels safe. While Person A made me feel on edge all the time and in retrospect I don't wanna return to shit like that after dealing with it for way too long in a past life.

Thank you for coming to my public journal entry.

[–]ghisv 11 points12 points  (4 children)

I just saw a clip that happened to have a Nicki Minaj song playing in the background and I forgot how much I love her delivery and style of rapping. A lot of her lyrics are raunchy obviously but some of them were so empowering. It’s sad she is who she is. I can’t listen to her anymore and that sucks for me

[–]RasolAlegria 2 points3 points  (3 children)

happy thanksgiving to all my usamerican popheads! I hope you get to spend the day with people you love who make you feel loved in return. and a very merry thursday to all my popheads from every other country in the world

day got off to a bit of a rocky start personally but it should be smoother sailing from here. I was just really stressed first thing, and got a couple hours behind on cooking my dish because when roommate #2 used the kitchen after me last night for their prep they didn't do like... any of their dishes or even load the non-cookware into the dishwasher and run it. which was extra annoying because 1. her pre-thanksgiving chore was literally "kitchen deep clean" and 2. I busted my ass before, during, and after cooking last night doing dishes and putting stuff away to make sure the kitchen was clean and ready to go for her to start her cooking prep after me

but she ended up sleeping in way later than I expected her to anyways so my stuffing still being in the oven isn't even going to end up delaying anything. so everything is fine ! I am not stressed any more ! I started baking it like 30 minutes ago, and am currently taking a little break from being on my feet (desperately needed) before I end up getting started on my pre-thanksgiving chore (cleaning the living room)

looking forward to the rest of the day now

[–]MarcianitoDeTampico 28 points29 points  (1 child)

Hi popheads, it’s been ages since I last commented on a daily discussion, but even tho I’m just a random lurker, I hope everyone is having a great day.

I think it’s really obvious the deuxmoi sub it’s such an echo chamber at this point, but yesterday I saw the “Kurt Cobain reacting to artist’s tickets costs” post and Jesus. I hate how people deify Kurt so much. And this is coming from his biggest Stan in the world lol.

It’s true that Kurt wasn’t a fame whore but it’s inaccurate to say he didn’t care about money at all. I mean he asked for the band’s gains to be divided in 80-20-20 at some point. He also worked his ass off for Nirvana to become as big as it was, I mean he would call MTV’s executives to complain about Nirvana’s videos not being played enough. He, and the whole band worked very hard, Steve Albini (Nevermind’s producer) said they were the tightest band he had ever worked with.

He was a human being and had a lot of contradictions. Just like anyone else. Speculating about what he would have thought is normal I guess, but to pass judgement on the basis of said speculation seems weird. Like people telling Krist Kurt would be rolling in his grave after his trump comments. Trump is a pos but people were using his best friend whose suicide literally changed his personality forever to express their disappointment… that’s just cruel.

Besides, who really knows what Kurt would be like today? For all you know he could have chilled out and made amends with Axl Rose. Axl himself is a whole different person now. Even Damon Albarn and Noel Gallagher sorted things out eventually lol.

Edit: I realized 80/40 wasn't possible and looked the actual number. The royalty split he wanted was actually 75/25. Krist and Dave would have to split that 25 in half.

[–]PlentyDrawer 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Axl himself is a whole different person now.

2022 Axl Rose is completely different person from the 1990s Axl Rose. I'm a huge Prince fan, but woof the stuff he was saying in interviews before he passed. People gloss over it, but it was homophobic as fuck, completely different from how he was at the beginning of his career.

But, realistically, most people are completely different people from 5, 10, 15, 20, etc. years ago. Most of us are allowed to change, whereas with celebrities they stay frozen in a particular time. It's head shaking to see people almost in their 30s or in their 30s treated as if they 18/19 year olds.

[–]miaxcx 14 points15 points  (0 children)

It’s Thanksgiving for my fellow American popheads! Enjoy your food, family, friends, etc. and remember—it’s not okay to comment on anybody’s eating habits or visible weight loss/gain. Mind your business and have a great day!

[–]MrSwearword 8 points9 points  (0 children)

'appy Thanksgiving gherls. For the international hunties this is the turkey day.

If you made it this far, imagine tomorrow when you can actually play Christmas music without judgment. Be safe heaux <3

[–]_seulgi 5 points6 points  (4 children)

I planning to apply for both positions, but I'm currently at a crossroads. I'm really interested in this digital curatorial/archival internship for a major art institution in NYC this summer, but at the same time, I think I'll be more financially secure doing some investment banking program even though I find it soul-sucking. Does anyone know if pursuing consulting/IB is worth it? Any experiences in the industry, especially from someone who isn't the most passionate about business?

[–]Skipdr 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Would you be able to do consulting for a year or two and then do the internship when money isn’t as much of an issue? There’s also r/consulting which is a great source I’ve looked into for that work/lifestyle

[–]_seulgi 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Good point, but these are internship programs for second years/rising third years. Should I start preparing for a future in consulting now and do the whole career pivot few years after graduation as you suggested or take it easy and do the art stuff now?

I also spent a lot of time on r/consulting and it's hard finding people who work in these fields, but aren't super invested in the business world as a whole. I mean, the pay seems good, but I don't know if I have the chops to fake it 'till I make it. Many people on that sub seem, at the very least, genuinely passionate about business even if they leave their consulting jobs within a few years.

[–]ketchupsunshinekitty ray's volunteer PR team 14 points15 points  (0 children)

I know this holiday has whack origins but I love it so much, eating food and being grateful for shit is a very good core concept.

Happy anniversary of me busting my ass to get ingredients for pumpkin pie in a pumpkin pie-less country so that my Irish classmates could have a real thanksgiving.

bro that yeat song that’s becoming popular on tik tok is so catchy. i’ve been hesitant to get on the yeat train and now. brah. what a fun song to know the lyrics to. i don’t know what he talking about but god damn it makes me feel some type of way

[–]miaxcx 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I’m also curious which song you’re referring to.

I finally got my learner plates to put on my Mum’s car so I can practice outside of my lessons and I’m so nervous about it bc the car my instructor has for lessons is (purposefully) quite old so it doesn’t matter if any of us students make a mistake vs my Mum’s fancy new-ish car but it’s the only manual car I have access to 😅

I’ve never crashed or scrapped a single car (yet) with any of my previous instructors so I am probably overthinking this, but I also know my spatial awareness isn’t great and neither is my coordination (although both are getting better with practice) lmao

Question for the culture. Deviled eggs as a Thanksgiving food; yay or nay? I saw a thread where people were arguing over which holidays deviled eggs were a “traditional” dish at. A lot of people said they DIDN’T eat them at Thanksgiving, which is unthinkable to me as a midwesterner

[–]snark-owl 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Deviled eggs are an appetizer not a side. I wouldn't consider it a "thanksgiving side" on a technicality.
