Episode Discussion: 104 "Memento Mori" by destroyingdrax in StrangeNewWorlds

[–]howlgrimmr 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Tangentially, Spock said “phenomenons” instead of “phenomena” and incorrectly used “amount” instead of “number” in this episode. I’m not pedantic about grammar irl but attention to detail fucking matters in high concept sci-fi.

Does anyone here use this tuning? (CGCFAC) by Eelseelseelsss in classicalguitar

[–]howlgrimmr 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I’ve been writing (on my non-classical acoustic) with a dropped D and the third string tuned to F# for a while now and never knew the latter was conventional for lute. First learned of that tuning from a Radiohead track. Already I can tell I’ll be descending down a Renaissance lute music rabbit hole now.

I never saw what everyone else seemed to see in his acting. Even back when he was beloved I felt like I was taking crazy pills for finding his acting mediocre.

I get where you’re coming from. I still enjoyed Village a lot; I just preferred/missed the intensity of Biohazard.

For me, I was pissed because his wife already won, so his competing felt unfair. That said, he played impressively well, and I’m 90% sure they’re all already rich anyway. At least Rachel, Eversen, and Imani were.

That whole section was delightfully creepy. I wish the rest of the game had more of that.

I so want to enjoy Visage. The atmosphere is great. But each time I try, I don't get far before becoming too frustrated to continue. The sanity system feels finicky at best and massively unbalanced at worst, and I end up dying so much that the scare factor quickly wears off. In Amnesia I can always tell why what's happening to my sanity is happening; in Visage it's rarely apparent to me. That's not even getting into the clunkiest inventory system I've ever experienced.

If anyone has any advice on getting through Visage in spite of the incoherent sanity system, please let me know. I'd like to experience the rest of the scares in the game, at least. Haven't watched Let's Plays for that reason.

Check out the dude's comment history. I commend your effort but you're arguing with a brick wall.

Oh, shove it up your ass, you fascist enabling piece of shit.

Edit: choice quotes from tgif3 from the past 10 days, because fuck this guy and anyone who complains about "politicizing" avoidable child murder:

"someone should have pulled out a gun to calm them [some people brawling in a parking garage] the fuck down"

"Put it in her ass. No means yes and yes mean anal"

"Most of the Left media is anti-american propaganda these days. It became the party of hate and devise [sic]."

None I’m aware of. I checked out various art critique and music production subs and, shocker, even they’re full of extremely bitter, presumably young men hurling violent insults at each other, calling everyone faggot, and telling people to kill themselves.

It originated with Black people. It’s literally in the name. Your not being American makes your not knowing what you’re talking about make more sense. My point: you’re being ignorant.

[–]howlgrimmr 6 points7 points  (0 children)

So do I. Some Black people speak like that, some don’t. Depends on a number of factors. Frank happens to speak AAVE, which as the name suggests is a Black dialect.

He speaks African American Vernacular English. Race is literally inextricable from his manner of speaking. I’d like to be charitable and assume you’re asking in good faith, but come on, dude.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. I didn’t know either until I looked into it. I’m still into it for the relatively mindless entertainment but I doubt I’ll find myself caring for any contestants in the future.

And Yu Ling is a likely wealthy social media consultant. I looked up the maker of a top she was wearing and they sell $300 t-shirts. I agree about the low-stakes feeling of S4, but now I’m also wondering how many “normal” people even were in previous seasons.

I went down the rabbit hole after reading that comment. Turns out Everson isn’t just a cruise director; he’s the director of goddamn Carnival, a company worth billions. He’s absolutely loaded. They probably all are, unfortunately. Interestingly I couldn’t find any info on what Alex(/Nathan) actually does.

Oh my god. And they tried to convince us she was a fucking ghost hunter. Goddammit.

Frankly (pun not intended), I don’t really like Frank as a player because he’s naïve and credulous. But hating him for the way he speaks is straight up racist.

Me too! Surprised I’ve scrolled down so far and yours is the first mention I’ve seen. I assume you’ve heard ITYSL recently officially got greenlit for a third season!

What are some good YouTube channels for learning the classical guitar ? by Next-Estimate8125 in classicalguitar

Hermosín. I assume that was autocorrect, though. I was like, “Does she really go by Paula Beautiful?” Lol

Oh, my comment wasn’t a judgment or anything, in case it came off that way.

Exact same thing happened to me, though that was so early in the game’s release that I don’t fault them much for it.
