2020.09.23 22:13 minipilenNew vinyl records will be released - Update!
In a previous post, I shared my experience I had from a phone call with Universal Music in Sweden to find out why 'Stories' is not available in any record store and inform that it has become an expensive rarity. Original post can be found here: https://www.reddit.com/avicii/comments/iq3k98/new_vinyl_records_will_be_released/ To do a quick recap, I called the front-desk and asked to speak with someone that works with the production of vinyls and records and I got patched to a guy in the production team. He did not work with the Avicii brand directly but his colleague did. During that phone call he revealed that we can expect two releases, one bigger and one smaller but I did not get a date nor any details on what type of release it would be (new music or a "greatest hits"). Understandably some people were doubting the truth in this statement since I could just be a trickster wanting attention. So I emailed the Senior Production Manager at Universal (the phone guy's boss) so I could get a written statement. Since the phone guy did not have any contact details posted online. Details can be found here: https://universalmusic.se/contact/ That manager has now come back with an answer that is not as detailed as 'phone guy' but still something worth posting. I think 'phone guy' revelead a little too much than what he was supposed to. It's in Swedish but I will make my own translation and post the orignal message so you can Google Translate if you wish: Translation: Hello OP Thank you for showing an interest! We are currently reviewing the Avicii catalog but it can be delayed until next year before anything get's released. There are currently long manufacturing times for vinyls. Have a nice weekend! Johan FunemyrSenior Production Manager Swedish: Hej OP, Tack för visat intresse! Vi håller på att se över Avicii katalogen men det kan dröja in i nästa år innan något kommer. Det är långa tillverkningstider för vinyl just nu. Trevlig helg! Johan FunemyrSenior Production Manager Again this statement does not give any details but they are working on something. I tried to get more information but he has stopped replying. It seems this will be the best that we get. Do what you want with that information.

Book Four Balance: Chapter Three PreviousHub Next Spoilers: For the sake of those that haven't watched the full series yet, please use the spoiler tag to hide spoilers for majospecific plot points that occur in episodes after the one being discussed. Discord: Discuss on our server as well. Fun Facts/Trivia: -The script for the episode featured the council meeting between Suyin and the world leaders, but was cut. -Kuvira was purposely designed to be similar to Korra in height, build, and personality traits, as to make it so that "Korra has to deal with overcoming a version of her past self". -The layout and construction of the Little Ba Sing Se Fashion Mall resemble that of a tulou, a type of communal residence native to Fujian, China. -Kuvira is a Hindi name meaning "courageous woman" Overview: As Wu prepares for his coronation, Mako harbors his doubts about the prince's readiness for the duties of a king. At the coronation ceremony, downsized because most of the royal artifacts have been looted, Wu honors Kuvira with a medal, but she declares his authority illegitimate, claiming herself to be the head of the new Earth Empire and threatening to crush anyone who opposes her rule. Although he has been anointed king, Wu commands little to no respect among his people, which Mako brings to his attention. With a conflict imminent, Tenzin orders his three eldest children to search for Korra and bring her back to Republic City. Meanwhile, in the Foggy Swamp, Korra trains with Toph Beifong, who reveals that Korra's body still contains residual traces of mercury. Toph abandons her attempt to remove it after Korra subconsciously fought against her actions and asserts that Korra has accepted the poison as an excuse to avoid being the Avatar.

2020.09.23 03:50 geminimxI (37M) thought my wife (36F) was sleeping with another man. It turns out it's worse, she's in love with him.
There's 19 years of convoluted history between my wife and me, I need advice from 3 different subs so I'll post the relevant stuff for each sub, if you want to read the complete picture, you can read my post con relationship_advicehere and my post on DeadBedroomshere. The post in this sub is for asking advice on dealing with my wife multiple infidelities so here it goes: Background for context: We've been married for almost 11 years now, 19 years together, met in college and started dating. Great relationship for 8 years and then decided to get married. After 3 years married she had a one night stand with the son of her boss, she came home the next day telling me the son must have druged her or something because she doesn't remember what happened, she was clubbing with her friends, the guy arrived to the club, they started chating and the next thing she knows she woke up on his house. To this day she says "she's not sure if they had sex or not" but she didn't want to take any kind of legal or medical action. I forgave her, she quit her job, and we were ok, so 1 year later we had our first son (now 7). 3 years later she attended her best friend's brother wedding in LA, USA. She slept with some random dude she met on the wedding. She came back to Mexico and told me all about it because she didn't use protection and needed to get tested (all clear TG). I forgave her, we did couples therapy for 8 months, she told me she was sorry but she was so stressed out with the baby and I never helped and she felt she had the responsability of the baby all by herself and so on and so on. I promised in therapy I would change and I did, I have since done everything she asked of me. It all seemed good so we got pregnant again and my daughter (now 3) was born 3 years after the incident. Since December 2018 I started to get the feeling that she was cheating again, this time with her male best friend (more about him later), so I started checking her phone and there were some glimpses of strange messages I could see but most of the time her conversations with her male and female best friend were deleted, I was very suspicious so I started checking her phone's GPS and on February 2019 there it was, her phone was on her male's best friend appartment when she was supposed to be clubbing with her female best friend. I confronted her about this and she promissed me there was nothing going on between them and she just din't tell me she was going to be with him because "since the thing in LA I had gotten extremely jealous and she didn't want to upset me". I had no more proof so I had to belive her. She promissed she would cut all contact with this guy and for I time I believed it. In a nutshell, I have had to forgive her 3 "slips". One where she says she doesn't remember, one she admitted and one she denied. For me it has been 3 times I have had to do work and forgive infidelity in my heart. About this guy, I'm gonna call him "C". C was my wife's best friend from college. She's a year younger so even though we went to the same college we weren't on the same classes and she was with this guy, she always told me he was her best friend "and nothing more". I always thought C loved S (my wife) but S loved me. My suspicion grew stronger when C refused to go to our wedding with some lame excuse. I told my wife that he was in love with her and couldn't handle watching her getting married to me, she told me I was crazy and that his lame excuse was valid and that "even if he was in love with her, she was in love with me". After our wedding he went to another city to get a masters degree and we stayed in our hometown so he was out of our lifes for many years. He came back to our hometown more or less by the time my daughter was born and S started seeing him regularly and getting coffees with him and going places with him because "after all he was her best friend". This happened until the night I told you about before. That brings us to today. For a reason I won't describe here to not make this post even longer than it already is, I knew my wife and her female best friend were going to talk about C the other night. So against my better judgment, because I knew I could hear something more than what I expected, I placed a voice recorder on my wife's car. I thought I only needed confirmation that they had slept together, that knowing that would give me closure, and I also was hoping for some confirmation that she wasn't seeing him anymore. Instead of that, I got to hear this: "I fell I made the ultime sacrifice of my life when P (me) asked me to stop seing him (C) because I miss him so much, I'm genuinely in love with him, I love him with all my hearth and soul, If you asked me who I want to be with right now is with him but he does not want to be with me, he wants to be with his GF, so in my genuine love for him I let him be with her because I know how much it hurts to not be with the person you love." And this: "I love C so much, he fascinates me, I have him in my head, my mind, my hearth, my soul, there's friendship, history and everything with him, but I have it clear that he's not the one I'm supposed to be with" I feel numb, I know I should feel devastated, I know a man with a healthier self respect would have packed his bags that same moment, I know I should be mad... but the thing is I don't know what to feel, what to think, what to do. I don't understand why I'm even considering staying. She did say some good things about me that you can read in my post here but I think what I'm trying to ask this sub is:
Why do I feel the need to stay? How can I still love so much someone who has hurt me so much?
What's your take on "staying for the kids"? I love my children and they are so young, I think I could stay just for them to be happy, specially since we don't really fight or anything they can notice.
Are there here anyone with experience on secretly recording your SO? I can never tell her I taped her, it would get really nasty, she would hate me for sure and I think it would make co-parenting more difficult. Also I believe it's illegal, so if she knows, it could hurt my access to my children on the divorce. So if I manage to convince my sorry ass to leave I can't tell her why I'm leaving.
TL;DR: I taped my wife talking to her BFF and I heard her admit she's in love with another man and that she finds it difficult to be without him, even with this knowledge I can't muster the courage to leave, my hearth tells me to keep trying, specially for my kids. Thank you. EDIT: Added the link to my deadbedroom post.
2020.09.22 22:28 geminimxI (37M) found out my wife (36F) is in love with another man but she chose to stick with me. Should I choose to stay with her?
There's 19 years of convoluted history between my wife and me, I need advice from 3 different subs so I'll post the relevant stuff for each sub, if you want to read the complete picture, you can read my post to survivinginfidelityhere and DeadBedroomshere. The post in this sub is for asking advice on my relationship, so I'll just give a brief background for context: We've been married for almost 11 years now, 19 years together, met in college and started dating. Great relationship for 8 years and then decided to get married. Two kids (7 & 3). She's been unfaithful to me 3 times that I know of, and although she only aknowledges one, for me it has been 3 times I have had to do work and forgive infidelity in my heart (more later on my post on /survivinginfidelity). The important part here is the third time she cheated: Since December 2018 I started to get the feeling that she was cheating again, this time with her male best friend (more about him later), so I started checking her phone and there were some glimpses of strange messages I could see but most of the time her conversations with her male and female best friend were deleted, I was very suspicious so I started checking her phone's GPS and on February 2019 there it was, her phone was on her male's best friend appartment when she was supposed to be clubbing with her female best friend.

I always thought C loved S (my wife) but S loved me. My suspicion grew stronger when C refused to go to our wedding with some lame excuse. I told my wife that he was in love with her and couldn't handle watching her getting married to me, she told me I was crazy and that his lame excuse was valid and that "even if he was in love with her, she was in love with me".

He came back to our hometown more or less by the time my daughter was born and S started seeing him regularly and getting coffees with him and going places with him because "after all he was her best friend".

For a reason I won't describe here to not make this post even longer than it already is, I knew my wife and her female best friend were going to talk about C the other night. So against my better judgment, because I knew I could hear something more than what I expected, I placed a voice recorder on my wife's car.

And this: "I love C so much, he fascinates me, I have him in my head, my mind, my hearth, my soul, there's friendship, history and everything with him, but I have it clear that he's not the one I'm supposed to be with" I know, I know, until here it's "Dude, what are you doing there? get out!" The thing is I also got to hear this: "I made the decision to be responsible for the person I chose to be with and I decided to live my life without C in my head and that's the life I'm living" And this "I'm always telling myself that P is a good man, that I shouldn't focus only on the bad things, he's a good husband and he takes a lot of my crap so I'm trying to make it work" And when her female best friend asked her if C where to become a millonair if her decision would change she said "No because there are come things more fundamental than money, things money can't give you like peace of mind, and C can't give me peace of mind, I don't believe a word he says, I would second guess myself all the time" and "If I were to leave P, it would have to be for a man better than P and right now I haven't found that man, I think he doesn't exist". So now I don't know what to think, what to feel, what to do. On the one hand, she openly admits she's not in love with me, she's in love with another man, she thinks about him when we make love, and I think I deserve better. I think I deserve a woman that loves me, not a woman that is with me because it's more convenient. But on the other hand, I can't bring myself to make my children go through divorce. If she's trying to make it work, if she knows she belongs with me, if I still love her with all my heart, if she's a good mother to my children, shouldn't I give her the benefit of the doubt? shouldn't I also try to make it work? for my children? Also, if I decide to confront her, how do I do it? I can never tell her I taped her, I would get really nasty, she would hate me for sure and I think it would make co-parenting more difficult. Also I believe it's illegal so if she knows, it could hurt my access to my children on the divorce. So she definitely can't know how I know she loves C. If I decide to end it, should I just tell her it's over and use one of our many problems as the cause? or should I tell her I know about C without acknowledging where I got the info? I think she'll most likely think her female best friend told me. TL;DR: I taped my wife talking to her BFF and I heard her admit she's in love with another man and that she finds it difficult to be without him, but she also says she knows her right place is with me and that she wants to make it work, so I don't know if I should end it because she's not in love with me or continue my relationship and let her try to make it work. Thank you. EDIT: Added links to my other 2 posts.
Hi all, I'm a DIY enthusiast and happy to have found this sub! I've got a Pebble 2 HR that's having some issues after getting wet. I followed the usual advice by using desiccant (better than rice) that my partner brought home from their lab (perks of dating a scientist) and it's working, with some issues remaining. I further opened it up by following the iFixit teardown+Teardown/107726) and cleaned off the board and contacts with isopropyl alcohol. After letting that dry, I've still got issues with charging and the optical HR sensor. The main difference of the "HR" model seems to be the optical heart rate sensor which is connected with a flex cable right above the right side of the battery as seen on step 3 of the teardown+Teardown/107726#s206836). I cleaned both sides of the connector with alcohol but I'm not seeing the LEDs light up any more. Finally, it seems really flaky with charging. I've used a voltmeter to verify that my chargers are putting out the right amount of current, so that doesn't seem to be the problem. The contacts appear clean and undamaged inside the watch, although they are definitely worn on the outside, where the charger connects. Should I just try to replace the battery? That seems like the only option left at this point. I know this is a fairly obscure post so I appreciate any helpful input.

2020.09.22 18:01 flyinmacaronimonsterAbsentee Ballots and Mail-In Ballots are not the Same: A Deep Dive into the Bizarre Rabbit Hole that is Voting in Missouri (Columbia-specific)
EXTREMELY IMPORTANT!!!"MAIL-IN" (NOT "ABSENTEE" BUT "MAIL-IN") BALLOTS CAN** ONLYBE MAILED BACK AS WELL MISSOURI IS ONE OF FOUR STATES THAT DO NOT ALLOW YOU TO OFFICIALLY TRACK YOUR BALLOT IN A WAY THAT IS EASY TO DO. https://www.businessinsider.com/how-to-track-the-status-of-your-mail-in-ballot-2020-9 THIS MEANS IF YOU REQUEST A "MAIL-IN" AGAIN NOT AN "ABSENTEE" BALLOT, YOU WILL NOT ONLY BE REQUIRED TO MAIL IT BACK, BUT YOU WILL HAVE NO EASY OR SIMPLE WAY TO TRACK YOUR BALLOT, ASIDE FROM CALLING OR EMAILING YOUR ELECTION CLERK, WHICH, IF THEY ARE BUSY, MAY BE DIFFICULT OR CUMBERSOME. TWO SPECIAL NOTES BEFORE WE BEGIN: (1) IF YOU HAVE ALREADY REQUESTED AND/OR RECEIVED A "MAIL-IN BALLOT" (NOT AN "A" BALLOT, BUT RATHER A "MAIL-IN" BALLOT) YOU SHOULD STRONGLY CONSIDER NOT SENDING IT IN; INSTEAD, I WOULD RECOMMEND GOING TO A POLLING PLACE, VOIDING THE MAIL-IN BALLOT AT THE POLLING PLACE, AND THEN SUBSEQUENTLY VOTING IN-PERSON. (2) AS WELL, IF YOU ARE VOTING "ABSENTEE" (NOT "MAIL-IN" BUT "ABSENTEE") DUE TO BEING AT A HIGHER-THAN-NORMAL-RISK FOR COVID-19, AND/OR IF YOU ARE PERMANENTLY DISABLED YOU DO NOT NEED TO HAVE YOUR BALLOT NOTARIZED. [see SB-631 and the "ASHCROFT ARTICLE" at the bottom of the page]. I would like to add that you will need to notarize your absentee ballot if you are requesting an absentee ballot for a reason other than than these reasons. IN-PERSON ABSENTEE VOTING AND BALLOT DROP-OFF IN BOONE COUNTY (EXCUSE MAY BE REQUIRED; SEE OPTION #3 (voting "in-person absentee) BELOW FOR MORE DTAILS) As a reminder, you will need to be able to show a valid form of voter ID when voting in person. ID can be either a photo ID (like your driver's license) or a non-photo ID (like a bank statement or a utility bill): https://www.sos.mo.gov/showit2vote https://www.sos.mo.gov/CMSImages/ElectionGoVoteMissouri/AcceptableIDstoVote--01.17.2020.pdf BOONE COUNTY In-person absentee voting will be available at the Roger B. Wilson Boone County Government Center, 801 E Walnut St, Room 236, Columbia, MO 65201 Hours: 8am-5pm MON-FRI. https://www.showmeboone.com/clerk/votebymailoptions.asp In addition to the County Clerk's office, you can also vote absentee in-person at the "Ballot Bus", which can be found 10am-3pm at the following dates and locations (credit given to u/MsBuffy): October 3: Hickman High School parking lot October 10: Southern Boone Primary School parking lot October 17: Rock Bridge High School parking lot October 24: Centralia High School parking lot IF YOU DO NOT LIVE IN BOONE COUNTY, CHECK OUT THE DIRECTORY OF COUNTY ELECTION OFFICIALS IN THE LIST OF LINKS AT THE BOTTOM OF THE PAGE. Hey Missourians! Today is the day that both absentee and mail-in ballots will be sent out to all registered voters who have requested one in Missouri. Before I dive deep into the rabbit hole as mentioned in the title above, let's first get one thing out of the way: if you are not registered to vote, do so RIGHT NOW. You can register online, using the link below: https://www.sos.mo.gov/elections/goVoteMissouri/register.aspx The deadline for voter registration is the fourth Wednesday before Election Day, which in this case is Wednesday, October 7, so don't delay. Now that you are registered to vote, we can dive right in. IF YOU ARE NOT PLANNING TO VOTE WITH A MAIL-IN BALLOT OR ABSENTEE (EITHER BY-MAIL OR IN-PERSON BEFORE ELECTION DAY), AND JUST WANT TO VOTE IN-PERSON ON ELECTION DAY, SKIP TO THEVOTING IN-PERSON ON ELECTION DAYSECTON BELOW. In Missouri there is no technically early voting per se, but there are 3 options for voting before Election Day: (1) request a "mail-in" ballot to be mailed to you (2) request an "absentee" ballot to be mailed to you (3) go in-person (starting TODAY) and vote "in-person absentee" BOTH MAIL-IN AND ABSENTEE BALLOTS NEED TO BE RETURNED BY 7:00pm ON ELECTION DAY. OPTION #1 (requesting a mail-in ballot): This option is available to every registered voter in Missouri. HOWEVER, IT IS MY VIEW THAT, IF YOU HAVE ALREADY REQUESTED AND/OR RECEIVED A "MAIL-IN" BALLOT, THEN YOU SHOULD STRONGLY CONSIDER PUTTING IT ASIDE, AND INSTEAD, GO TO A POLLING LOCATION, VOID THE BALLOT, AND THEN JUST VOTE IN-PERSON. There are FIVE key limitations that apply to "mail-in" ballots (that, by the way, do not apply to "absentee" ballots): (1) YOU CANNOT DROP OFF YOUR BALLOT IN PERSON AND ARE REQUIRED TO MAIL IT BACK. (2) YOU CANNOT USE A COMMON CARRIER (UPS/FEDEX) TO MAIL BACK YOUR BALLOT. YOU MUST SEND IT THROUGH THE U.S. MAIL ONLY, VIA THE USPS. [see the "ASHCROFT ARTICLE" in the list of links below] (3) YOU CANNOT OFFICIALLY TRACK YOUR BALLOT IN A WAY THAT IS EASILY DONE (YOU HAVE TO CALL OR EMAIL YOUR ELECTION OFFICIAL), MAKING IT POTENTIALLY DIFFICULT OR CUMBERSOME TO KNOW IF YOUR BALLOT WAS RECEIVED ON TIME. (4) ALL "MAIL-IN" BALLOTS REQUIRE A NOTARY SIGNATURE AS A WITNESS. (5) YOU ALSO MAY NEED TO PAY A FEE TO HAVE IT NOTARIZED IF YOU CANNOT FIND A FREE OPTION. It is because of all these limitations and inconveniences that you should strongly consider voiding your ballot at the polling place on Election Day, and just vote in-person, instead of mailing it back. Points #1, #2 and #3 are limiting because there is no way to 100% guarantee that your ballot will get there on-time especially in light of possible mail delays. Even if the mail wasn't necessarily slower than normal, there is still no way to 100% guarantee that your ballot will arrive on time to your County Election official's office, so having an option to at least hand-deliver your ballot is something that they should provide for "mail-in" ballots but don't. As well (per Point #2), it is limiting that there is no option to mail it via private courier, which would give voters an alternative to the USPS. Points #4 and #5 are an additional inconvenience as you will have to go out of your way to have it notarized, and if you do not want to pay for the service, you will have to seek out a notary that will provide it for free. AGAIN, I JUST WANT TO MAKE IT CRYSTAL CLEAR THATNONEOF THESE INCONVENIENCES ARE APPLICABLE WITH "ABSENTEE" BALLOTS. OPTION #2 (requesting an absentee ballot-by-mail): This option is only available if you have a valid excuse: Here is the full list of excuses:
Absence on Election Day from the jurisdiction of the election authority in which such voter is registered to vote;
Incapacity or confinement due to illness or physical disability, including a person who is primarily responsible for the physical care of a person who is incapacitated or confined due to illness or disability;
Religious belief or practice;
Employment as an election authority, as a member of an election authority, or by an election authority at a location other than such voter's polling place;
Incarceration, provided all qualifications for voting are retained.
Certified participation in the address confidentiality program established under sections 589.660 to 589.681 because of safety concerns.
For an election that occurs during the year 2020, the voter has contracted or is in an at-risk category for contracting or transmitting severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (COVID-19).
Voters who are considered at-risk for contracting or transmitting COVID-19 are those who:
Are 65 years of age or older;
Live in a long-term care facility licensed under Chapter 198, RSMo.;
Have chronic lung disease or moderate to severe asthma;
Have serious heart conditions;
Have chronic kidney disease and are undergoing dialysis; or
Theme accompanied description: To attain depth (the quality of being intense or extreme), it takes commitment.
Genres this week: Organic electronic, deep disco house, minimal tech house, organic electronic, jazz fusion, alternative metal, Australian alternative rock, melodic metalcore, new wave pop, alt-rock/pop punk, british jazz pop and indie soul.
The Ⓙ Rebrand playlist is organised into genres (within the Spotify app). If you can't see these labels in your app: go to Settings>DisplayOptions>Show unavailable songs ☑ )
Song choice rationale and track descriptions: Dissociative - Traf: [Genre: organic electronic] This track has been sitting in the Ⓙ Rebrand Archive 2020 since the start of the month now and I think it deserves to be shared. This song ticks some boxes for me in terms of both an uplifting and exciting sound as well as having elements groovy synth to it. As I have listened to a lot of synthwave and organic electronic this track vibes well on both fronts while also pulling in some chill guitar riffs into the mix. It’s just an easy going starter to the playlist this week, but it sets the mood for some faster paced songs to follow. Phill Callings - Aquarius Heaven: [Genres: deep disco house, german house] So, this week I have decided to feature another track by Brian Brewster aka: “Aquarius Heaven” and I’m still “frothing” this vibe. It’s experimental house music with roots in reggae and dancehall featuring a hip-hop singer with colours of the Caribbean in his voice. IMO the other track on this EP (Work That Body) is nowhere near as good. This track is the one I would have featured last week and I’m still loving it; so after mentioning there might be more AH featured, this is the one. I have also set this track as my “current obsession” on GinkoMusic LastFM as well as placed it in Ⓙ Ginko’s Obsessions. What They Say - Maya Jane Coles: [Genres: uk house, deep disco house, minimal tech house, electra, deep house, house, electronica, microhouse] This is straight up one of the most groovy and catchy tracks in the line-up. Hard not to be moved by this one (unless of course you can’t hear or you have a hole in your heart). Now this is the most popular track on Spotify by the artist: Maya Jane Coles, but I have to say it was a hard pick between this and Simple Things which is also on the same album: What They Say EP but I figured, it’s the opening track and it’s the main track on the album. If you dig this sound, I’d encourage you to suss out the rest of the album. There were a lot of tracks I had to choose from in the Maya Jane Coles catalogue, but I’ll be tempted to keep them in the rotations throughout the week. Delta - Solace Remix - Katl June, Solanca: [Genres: progressive house, organic house] This is a Solanca remix of the original track by Katl June. It's another one of those tracks that isn’t really that “exciting” but I think it has its place in providing a good ambient soundscape that promotes productivity and commitment to the task(s) you’re doing. Not much of a feature but a nice chill house track with uplifting vibes that I think still has merit. It actually works well as a bit of a palate cleanser in the playlist. Jorge - Satori Remix - Acid Pauli, Satori: [Genres: organic electronic, ethnotronica, organic house, organic electronic, organic house, microhouse, deep euro house, minimal techno, tech house] Another track that has a phenomenal introduction worth my kudos. This is the soundtrack to the artwork this week, a futuristic world that still functions well, but has some downfalls. It’s some pretty stylish house music if you ask me, but each to their own. Back to the Basics - AW:[Genre: tech-house] So, back in April this year I featured a similar track in Rebrand “Back to Basics” by KVPV, in Ⓙ Rebrand 29/04/20 but I think I like this version better. Not only am I enjoying AW’s very limited and underground discography, but this track has more of the sounds I like in it; drumming, hard tech-house style and some quality mastering. My House - Joe Jackson: [Genres: Jazz fusion, dance rock, art rock, mellow gold, new wave pop, new romantic, pub rock, soft rock] I hate to have to put a Joe Jackson track in Rebrand, but I’ve been digging this one lately and I think he makes some good music. I know I’m mostly going to be alone here, so no offence if this track gets skipped, but I am including quite a lot more nostalgic tracks this week, so it might not be enjoyed by everyone. I love the lyrics "one of these days I'm gonna smash somebody's car and smash the coppers face, as they take me away, but I gotta go home now" - It really captures the feelings a lot of people have when they keep emotions bottled up until one day they just snap... You - Breaking Benjamin: [Genres: alternative metal, post-grunge, nu metal] This song expresses the mistakes the singer has made while living a life of drug abuse and in doing so, took his lover for granted. This song expresses the sorrow and contrition of the singer for setting such a terrible example and making these mistakes. I really enjoy singing this track and I chose it mostly for that reason. It is a track I have always loved. All I Know - Karnivool: [Genres: Australian alternative rock, djent, alternative metal, progressive metal] I have been a fan of Karnivool for many years now and this song is somewhat dear to my heart. I’ve been getting a lot out of this song lately and it’s got some really nice melodies to sing along to. I just love the bridge in this track too (it starts at half way). It's one of the grooviest things you'll hear, featuring off-beat drumming and ambient guitar… gives me goosebumps. This track has been on high rotation the past week. It's a very nice song folks. Louder Voice - Fit For A King: [Genres: melodic Christian metalcore, deathcore, post-screamo] I wanted to feature one track off the album The Path by Fit For A King which was released in full this past week. This song has an acceptable intro, which makes the transition into the genre easier, but the song is pretty full-on both lyrically and musically. It covers the topic of experiencing cognitive dissonance around letting love back into your life while struggling with multiple voices or outlooks on the matter. Somebody’s Watching Me - Single Version - Rockwell: [Genres: new wave pop, dance rock, new romantic, new wave, synthpop, soft rock, disco, europop, mellow gold, motown] There are a few nostalgic tunes in this week’s playlist. This one reminds me of the days when I was first getting into dance music, listening to Ministry of Sound. I can’t imagine there would be too many people who would skip this old banger of a synth track. There’s a reason it was popular and as much as we love hearing new songs, there’s always a place for nostalgia and music is so powerful in delivering it. For anyone interested, the BeatFreakz version of this track is the one featured on Ministry of Sound's: Sessions Three, released in 2006, but I currently like the Rockwell Single version better; BeatFreaks trashed the mastering in their version, but if I want to tap into that true nostalgia, the BeatFreaks version hits the spot. crushcrushcrush - Paramore: [Genres: alt-rock, candy pop, pixie, pop punk, pop emo] Yeah, another early 2000’s tune. I got right into this album again the past week and it was pulling some nostalgic strings for me. This was probably one of my favourite Paramore songs back in the day and I have enjoyed bringing it back this week. Julie Mangos - Tom Misch, Yussef Dayes: [Genres: British jazz pop, indie soul] I really like this quirky little track off the new album: What Kinda Music by Tom Misch (multi-instrumentalist) and Yussef Dayes (drummeproducer). This particular track resonated with me because I like the dynamic chosen to convey a little story. It’s personal, but it’s also really nice to just get a snippet of two friends' lives. The music changes with the perceived emotion of the participants in the conversation recorded. Very exciting shit homies. I didn’t leave this track to last because it’s my least favourite of the set; I positioned it here because it sets me up with such a good mood when I listen to it, I hoped it would end the playlist in a really nice way for everyone. If you enjoy it, I encourage you to bang on the rest of the album. Also featured in Ⓙ Album of the week until next Wednesday. It’s a great, ambient album; suggested to me by a close friend and I rate this experimental style highly. The drumming in this album is quite phenomenal really, groovy shit. It’s a good, chill listen... Check it out.

2020.09.22 11:03 JasoNMas73RPeeps, I need to rethink some shit
So If I ask a girl to do a activity with me is that generally considered "asking her out (on a date)"? For me, as an Autist, it would make far more sense to ask the girl specifically on a date to go on... well... a date. No idea if this makes sense, but hopefully the underlying text will.
I'd love to know you better. Would you like to go do something with me?
-Asking someone out for an shared activity, nothing romantically per se (in my book)
Hey, would you be interested to go on a date with me?
-Asking someone on a date, obviously a romantic activity (in my book) Is this common thinking or am Ithe odd one out?

Brian D. Hill, formerly of USWGO alternative news had filed a letter to Justice Clarence Thomas by 24-hour express mailing urging him to grant his petition for writ of certiorari. Writ of certiorari is an order to review over the decision of a lower court and possibly mandate a change in that lower court decision through order and remand. This is again in regards to his federal criminal case where Brian had accused the federal prosecutor Anand Prakash Ramaswamy of knowingly defrauding the court, that the fraud and coercion by his own court appointed lawyers was used to scare and coerce him into falsely pleading guilty to his charge. He had also sent a letter a few months ago to Justice Brett Kavanaugh, Brian explained why he supported QAnon and about him being an ally of QAnon. https://preview.redd.it/7e3egbec1no51.jpg?width=453&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=9a912d5c097c185f5efdaef0f1d71e8eadab6582 Let’s first post links to the letter before I make a brief interpretation of what it talks about. Review our PDF file list: Letter to Clerk of the United States Supreme Court about New Express Mail tracking number(2) – letter about why the mailing was sent through express mailing rather than priority mail, original letter as it was finalized. Letter to Justice Clarence Thomas and Certificate of Service(5)Fax numbers corrected – The original finalized letter to Justice Clarence Thomas before it was scanned and mailed off. letter-addressed-to-honorable-justice-clarence-thomas-september-15-2020-scanned-text-searchable-ocr – The letter addressed to Justice Thomas that was scanned and was made available through text searchable OCR. letter-addressed-to-honorable-justice-clarence-thomas-september-15-2020-scanned – The letter addressed to Justice Thomas that was scanned but was not modified to be text searchable. 3-pages-letter-clerk-supreme-court-scotus – 3 pages of letter mailed to the clerk of the Supreme Court in the same express mail envelope.

Not text searchable. 3-pages-letter-clerk-supreme-court-scotus-text-searchable-ocr – Text searchable version. 3 pages of letter mailed to the clerk of the Supreme Court in the same express mail envelope. That is about begging the clerk to make the letters electronically available in PDF format on the Supremecourt.gov website on the docket of his case. Not text searchable. Letter to Clerk of the United States Supreme Court about filing letters to Docket – Original letter when finalized without the additional addendum about the change of USPS tracking number to an express mailing tracking number. return-receipt-EL334898784US – Return receipt from USPS service. Proves that the United States Supreme Court had received the envelope with the letters from Mr. Hill. USPS-express-mail-us-supreme-court-justice-clarence-thomas – Priority mail express carbon copy of form, proving that it was accepted by the Post Office and the location of where the mailing was being mailed to, and who the mailing was directed towards. Proves that an express mail was indeed mailed by Brian D. Hill to the Supreme Court. USPS-EL334898784US-successful-delivery-status – delivery status report from the tracking number service at the USPS website. Shows that the Supreme Court did in fact received the express mailing containing the letter to Hon. Clarence Thomas. https://preview.redd.it/q9nu3yig1no51.jpg?width=1008&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=f6b33446b2d57804323470c70e6146498deb4933 First of all, let’s see what all of this is about, why Brian would be mailing yet another Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States [SCOTUS]. Brian is running a political campaign at the federal judiciary for acquittal, for permanent vacatur of his wrongful conviction, being acquitted of his wrongful probation violations. Brian wants to be acquitted of all allegations that were well-grounded in fraud, perjury, evidence tampering, and/or dishonesty by the federal prosecutor in the entire federal case since his charge back in 2013. Not just dishonesty but misinterpretation of events that had actually happened and that the court refused to conduct an investigation into anything except just to keep punishing him over and over again without any right to relief, as if the court is completely a one sided tribunal that always convicts and hardly ever acquits if at all. Seven years is a long time to be consistently fighting a federal charge and eventually a conviction. Especially for somebody who had received an imprisonment sentence of time already served for his kind of computer crime charge, a sentence many would snitch for including Jeffrey Epstein. Why would Brian buck his supervised release by filing evidence and pleadings concerning his actual innocence and risk getting targeted by fighting for proving his innocence all of these years even when Alex Jones had turned his back on Brian and his family. Rob Dew of Infowars just receives information about his case but ignores it thereafter and doesn’t seem to be interested in any articles being written about this entire predicament. Brian stands almost entirely on his own two feet, like David and Goliath of the bible in the old testament. One small mentally handicapped man with Autism versus the entire corrupt criminal justice system, the federal judicial machinery. With pretty much no lawyers, no mainstream media coverage, and no support from his old alternative media buddies or allies with exception to Susan Basko, Luke Rudkowski, and Aaron Kesel. Very few people had ever truly wanted his story to even get out on the public town square. Brian was just hidden away like a dirty skeleton in the closet, like an embarrassment to the entire alternative media that Brian would even allow himself to be framed with child pornography. None of those people have mental disabilities. Anybody can be vulnerable to get set up whether they have a mental disability or not. The alternative media is an embarrassment for what they did to Brian D. Hill, silently ignoring him and turning their backs on him. Here is some of what was written and typed up to Justice Thomas, copied and quoted from the letter.
I am writing this letter to you in reference to case no. 19-8684, entitled: Brian David Hill v. United States District Court for the Middle District of North Carolina. This petition should be granted, here is reasons why. I have proven my case, I have proven my claims. Under the Local Court Rules concerning civil cases which encompasses the 2255 Cases, the other party in a case has three weeks to respond to a motion or it is uncontested. Assistant United States Attorney Anand Prakash Ramaswamy did not respond to a single allegation of Fraud upon the Court against him in those motions in the district court record. It is only by Deep State corruption and fiat that I lose. In a legitimate Article III Court I should never have been convicted. The emotional stigmatization surrounding the charge or the elements of such charge should not apply to this case or any criminal case within our Federal Courts. Every criminal defendant deserves all Constitutional rights including the right to a fair trial, effective counsel, that it is assumed that the prosecutor is not defrauding the court but upon any evidence of fraud surfacing that any judgment in favor of the prosecutor should be reversed, the right to an impartial tribunal and impartial judge, and the other Constitutional rights affirmed by this U.S. Supreme Court by controlling/persuasive case law precedent in the past. It doesn’t matter whether you are conservative or liberal. The Constitutional rights in jeopardy in this case affects not just Brian David Hill but also former Lt. General Michael Thomas Flynn who also had falsely plead guilty to his charges to protect his son from the Mueller witchhunt where evidence could have been fabricated against Flynn’s son unless Flynn falsely pleads guilty then would be directed to make up lies against U.S. President Donald John Trump which would have been perjury and obstruction of justice. I had already provided multiple affidavits/declarations to the U.S. District Court years ago and in the 2255 case and FOIA lawsuit in another Federal District Court referenced in the 2255 case with the exact same U.S. Attorney Office in the Middle District of North Carolina involved in that FOIA lawsuit in Virginia as to why I had falsely plead guilty. I also explained that I had falsely confessed because Charles J. Caruso of Mayodan Police Department said that if I did not fess up then my mother would be held responsible. I reacted the exact same way as Michael Thomas Flynn of the Trump Administration did, falsely admit guilt to protect a family member which is the very heart of coercion and non-voluntary admissions of guilt. That in itself is entirely fraudulent, a fraudulent guilty plea does not make a fraudulent case by a Federal Prosecutor any more valid than a pyramid scheme fraud or wire fraud. Quoted from the beginning of the letter to Clarence Thomas – Dated September 15, 2020 The decisions made in this Supreme Court affect all parties, both conservative and liberal, as well as independent or anybody who is citizen of this republic, the United States of America. Here is the major concerns that will make the American people hate our judicial system and no longer recognize it was having integrity and honesty. A Court of Appeals has allowed multiple frauds upon the court and a judge refusing to act upon pending motions that were unopposed on the record in the U.S. District Court where those motions were filed. Those motions should have been granted by default as they did have valid evidence and was well-grounded in law and authoritative case law as far as this Supreme Court. That is an excess of jurisdiction and a deprivation of due process under the Fifth Amendment of the United States Constitution. If motions filed by Brian Hill can be ignored while other motions that were filed by Brian Hill were acted upon by the usual denial or granting of the motion, then such decision cannot be appealed directly because no decision had ever made on such a motion. Appeals can only be filed as a motion has been acted upon, that is a legal fact throughout legal history. Writ of Mandamus is appropriate as a vehicle for an inaction by a responsible judicial officer of the federal judiciary branch. Such inactions will prompt any and every Federal Court to just sit on motions and never act upon them. That right there deprives a party of due process of law, depriving them of their Fifth Amendment protections that were well-settled in past decisions that were decided by this very Court, essentially taking away enforcement power from the Supreme Court. That means the District Court and Courts of Appeals can treat your Court like it is illegitimate to subvert your Court’s authority and can act above and beyond the law throughout case law history, essentially tribunals that ignore the Supreme Court and subvert the decisions of the Supreme Court, this is very dangerous to our constitutional republic. Ignoring evidence and ignoring motions completely sends a message that justice cannot be obtained through the lawful process of the judicial system, which can lead to anarchy and insurrection against the Government, it is a broken process with no rule of law. It can lead to a disrespect of law as well as disrespect against its enforcers. It is what can lead to demonstrations which can escalate to riots that Black Lives Matter and ANTIFA had demonstrated even when they attack any and every average citizen as well as attacking elderly and kids through violent raging mobs, because they feel that the system they relied upon had failed them and that the courts cannot be a peaceful means to achieve justice for an injustice or a repeated injustices that continue happening unabated. It is very important that this case be reviewed over and scrutinized to the details and the merits of this very case. This Petition for Writ of Certiorari is not a time waster and does present a very critical and substantial issues that has not been widely demonstrated for such a need to create new case law precedent. Quoted from the beginning of the letter to Clarence Thomas – Dated September 15, 2020
Read the entire letter for yourself. It is concerning that Brian is having to go as far as to spill his guts to a Justice of the Supreme Court on the entire corrupt judicial mechanism and begging the Supreme Court to undo the damage caused by the entire corrupt Fourth Circuit federal appeals court in Richmond, Virginia and then the entirely corrupt middle district of North Carolina run by KING CHIEF RAT judge Thomas David Schroeder. QAnon may have been right when they said “RATS PANIC IN DC”. If the petition is granted and given a second look, this may create media coverage from not just Scotus-blog but many legal scholars will be investigating how a pro se filer was able to overcome the very legal hurdles that many lawyers cringe at such labor without charging an arm and a leg with a team of lawyers and assistants. Brian had filed literally hundreds to thousands of pages of evidence and pleadings, filed CD-ROM and DVD-ROM discs with the court, and had also tried to file audio discs in his cases. Even requested or demanded that the clerk file his color photographs in color when many pleadings are simply filed in black and white imagery. Brian appears desperate to win at all costs and is going up against a well armed, well funded, tax paid for, corrupt U.S. attorney office and corruption within the Department of Justice. However the only difference between him and them is that Brian is willing to be honest and not play dirty to win at all costs. However he is willing to risk being murdered, risk being targeted, and willing to potentially risk others being targeted possibly to retaliate to scare anybody from helping him. Brian did receive one threatening email from tormail.org back in 2013 stating that they will set up Alex Jones and others with child porn next because Brian would not shut his mouth up. Sounds like MAFIA style pedophile criminal racketeering corruption and networks of organized pedophilia going on, and Brian is involved in being framed of it, and is in the middle of this behind-the-scenes pedophile turf war of the New-World-Order against the alternative media. Pedophiles are working inside of the corrupt factions of the United States Government which was revealed with the arrest and homicide of Jeffrey Epstein a serial child molester and child trafficker for politicians and high-ups like Bill Clinton and Prince Andrew in Europe. https://preview.redd.it/b00ws80m1no51.png?width=1024&format=png&auto=webp&s=1ef932b6212712d77b11690692fb2670c23139b7 This threatening email mentions one high profile person, and that was Alex Jones of Infowars who was in the photograph with Brian Hill and Stewart Rhodes back in June, 2012. https://preview.redd.it/m4hjj8zs1no51.jpg?width=1084&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=c7b99bd4887ace48b8cfcbc53b936c9d85c92397 Will the honorable Clarence Thomas agree to the claims by petitioner Brian D. Hill in his letter and agree to vote in favor of Brian’s petition for writ of certiorari and give his case files an investigation to determine whether or not there needs to be an intervention by the Supreme Court, the court of final resort?

[First] [Previous] [Next] ----- <"Dude, I love playing that when I was a kid!"> said Wora exuberantly over video chat. <"I can't believe they still make it."> Le'quaren, the only friend Wora could name that wasn't perpetually surrounded by criminals and thugs, sat smiling, cradling her newborn in her arms. <"Jell told me it's getting even more popular at the store he frequents, but he's concerned that if his friends find out he plays, he's never going to hear the end of it."> Wora giggled. She remembered feeling the same way in her youth, spending a solid chunk of the allowance she received from performing chores to buy a pack of cards just for the feeling of anticipation and mystery. It was simpler then, better. Wora thought. <"Hey..."> Today's lunch was a lonely one for Behn. While a significant portion of the women went to have their bi-weekly video calls, she abstained, choosing instead to get in line for food that, without the rest of the prison lining up for their meals and bringing things to a crawl, was comparatively fresh. The food, surprisingly refreshing though it was, was no replacement for Wora's lively demeanour and barbs at the brainless programmes on the television, which the prisoners noted to now be flickering somewhat; the women expected their food to soon take another dip in whatever quality it had left. At last, and with a tray on which she swore she could see the scrapings from the bottom of the greasy pot in which her meal was cooked, Wora arrived, throwing herself onto the bench beside Behn. The mood was immediately lifted. <"Hey, girl. What'd I miss?"> <"Just some weather boy waffling on about expected wind speeds during Chill Winds. They're gonna be high, but nothing we haven't survived before."> As she heard the young man read the weather report, part of Behn was glad that Arnd apparently spent most of her time in X'rtani House, she would be nice and warm there. <"Huh. Oh! Did I ever tell you about that one time when my aunt slipped on an ice patch and fell down the stairs of her apartment complex?"> Behn shook her head. <"Yeah. She was fine in the end, nothing more than a few bruises, but she screamed like a damn siren until she hit the floor. A cop came bursting in looking for his buddy's cruiser, muttering that he didn't get a call for a crime in progress! When he saw my aunt, he damn near pissed himself!"> Wora chuckled heartily, and Behn couldn't help but be drawn in. The two women laughed so hard that they missed the opening to that day's episode of MarkWatch. The pair watched a man too average-looking to form an opinion on confront Mark on a bus, and a thought came to Wora's head. <"Do you have anyone to call on the outside? Friends, family?"> Behn swallowed hard after she removed her gaze from the television and processed the question. <"No. I hadn't noticed I left it all behind until I realized who I was running with. And before you ask: no, I'm not calling my mother."> she clarified, dim resentment on her tongue. <"You think she would've called by now, given what you've told me."> <"She's busy doing gods know what with Mark and all that government crap, I wouldn't be surprised if it was years before she called to talk."> Wora nodded along as only a friend would, recognizing that words were no good here, and returned to her meal. <"You reckon he couldn't have gone shorter? Show some arm?"> asked Wora in relation to the tailored suit MarkWatch's presenters accurately predicted he had arranged for. <"Meh, it's probably fashionable where he's from. It's not my business in any case."> replied Behn, squat lifting the weight of the average prisoner in the complex. It was simple. It certainly wasn't a heavy machine gun, two backpacks worth of ammo, malante plate body armor... <'No, gods damn it! You're past that! The violence is no more! Just squat and breathe, Behn.'> She squatted, she breathed, she felt her thighs grow warm with the effort, focusing on that helped her stay in the moment. <"Behn?"> <"Sorry, I spaced out a bit, what'd you say?"> Wora pointed past Behn, whose gaze followed her friends finger. Four surly women, with enough muscle between them to convince Behn that they could bend the collective population of the prison into thick knots. They closed in and Behn put the barbell back on the rack. She and the quartet's eyes met, and the clear challenge was recognized. <"So,"> began a X'etish woman who dwarfed the others. <"Miss Ex-Fang here's got 48 lifetimes, eh? Not bad, pint-size."> She giggled, her yellowed and chipped fangs on full display. <"See, there's something about multiple life sentences that I'm sure you know: You step out of line, and you're in solitary."> <"I'm aware."> replied Behn, knowing exactly where this was going. <"So then you know that you can't fight anyone, correct?"> the woman sneered, leaning down so her jaw was inches from Behn's face. Behn didn't notice a X'rtani woman slinking out of view. <"Correct."> The woman stood back up. <"Good."> Behn was seized from behind, a second X'rtani clamping her jaw shut <"Don't go crying now."> she taunted. Wora hollered for the guards, only to be grabbed by the jaw and thrown to the ground by the X'eti, who roughly held her face to the floor. Struggle as she might, Wora was helpless and silent in witnessing Behn's right arm being held out by a X'ogan woman, her mouth warped into a savage grin. <"You learn that we're the bosses in this yard right quick, or..."> And with a visceral crunch that turned both Behn and Wora's stomach, the woman bit down on Behn's thumb, removing it at the base. She spat it on the ground and chuckled, her jowls splotched with bloody yellow. Behn, pain and disgust twisting inside her, swayed at the sight of her own blood. Finally, the guards arrived, detaining the perpetrators. Upon her attacker's seizure, gore-induced vomit spilled from Behn's newly unclamped jaw, and she staggered to the floor, lightheaded and queasy. As the assailants were taken away, a guard administered basic first aid to Behn while calling for a medical team for the two victims. Before long, a team arrived with a mag-lifted bed for Behn, they immediately administered an anesthetic and antibiotics to the wound, and they rushed Behn off to the prison station's medical ward. Wora, her head throbbing, was helped off the ground by the guard who stood beside Behn, and was led from the yard as she explained the altercation. Wora's impatience was not due to the aches she felt as her injuries were examined in the medical ward. <"You appear to have a mild concussion and some bruising."> noted the doctor. The guard present relayed this information to her fellow officers in Wora's arm of the prison. <"There's no cure for a concussion but rest and limiting stimulus; no television, no major physical activity, and keep socializing to a minimum for the next few days. I'll have pills regularly sent to your cell to help with pain, and I'll arrange for your meals to be sent to your cell, too. In the meantime, I can provide you with a blindfold and earmuffs to help limit stimulus."> The physician filled out application forms as she spoke. <"You should begin to first see results in a few days, and I'll have you come in for an examination in seven days."> <"Fine, cool, whatever."> said Wora. <"Is Behn going to be okay?"> <"Your cellmate? Due to patient confidentiality, I can't give that information away. But I'll ask her if it's okay, and we'll go from there."> <"Yes, please."> Restlessness was thick in her tone. The doctor blinked at her for a moment, before turning back to her computer. <"Alright. We'll arrange someone to visit you in your cell as soon as possible."> She turned to the guard, handing her the stimulus-limiting headwear. <"Shel, please escort Miss Lakk back to her cell, and be sure to take the quiet routes."> <"Of course, Doctor. You heard her, get these on you and I'll get you back safe."> the officer held the blindfold and earmuffs out to Wora, who took them begrudgingly. The blindfold didn't so much as blind Wora, but rather kept her vision dim, which she admittedly appreciated given her injury, the earmuffs too aided in the easing of her headache; they didn't help ease the throbbing she felt from her bruises, though. When Wora arrived back at her cell, she saw some pills already arranged on her bedside table; they tasted like everything and nothing at the same time, she nearly gagged. After chasing her medication with some water, she slumped down onto the bed and dozed, her body seemingly responding to the doctor's orders. She later woke with a start as a guard outside her cell called for her attention. <"Miss Kell? Miss Kolr would like to see you in the medical ward, I'm here to escort you."> Wora didn't miss a beat, immediately following the guard through the passageways prisoners usually only got to see if they were in deep trouble, add-years-onto-your-sentence trouble. All the way, she was thankful for the headwear provided, and was finally deposited into the medical ward after an uneventful journey. A doctor, noticeably armed - it was a prison, after all - directed Wora to Behn's bed. Behn laid propped up in a hospital bed with her eyes closed, grimacing in pain. Her right arm and hand were held still by braces as a tissue replicator went to work reattaching her thumb with new bone, muscle fibers, and skin weaved from their constituent components coded with her DNA, given in a sample taken from the shredded stump of her thumb. Wora noticed that a small curtain had been set up to block Behn's view of her automated operation. <"Behn, it's me."> said Wora, sitting by her bedside. Behn's eyes slowly opened, brightening when her friend came into focus. <"Hey sis. Wh-ugh, what's with the sleepwear?"> she asked sardonically. <"Concussion, but I'll be fine. How about you?"> <"I should be okay, too. The doc said that this should take just fine, given that it's mostly a reattachment. At best, I'm looking at minor scars."> Wora raised an eyebrow. <"And at worst?"> <"My body rejects the new tissue, my thumb falls off, and they try again."> Behn explained nonchalantly, as though the sight of such wouldn't result in her puking again. <"Ah."> Though her tone didn't show it, in truth, Wora was truly relieved that her friend, despite her gruesome injury, was still in high spirits. One question remained, however. <"So, you're looking at a stint in solitary?"> <"Nah, enough of the girls in the yard vouched for me that I'm off the hook this time. I got told that those dry cunts are in lockdown for half a month and their pay's been slashed. Next time they jump someone, they're in solitary for a month, with an extra month for each following attack. And the best part, I now have express permission to defend myself from those four in future."> Behn giggled. <"I mean, so long as I don't break anything."> <"Oh, thank the gods, I didn't want to lose you."> expressed Wora, not realizing until after she had said it that she said the quiet part out loud. <"Aww, you would've missed me?"> Behn barbed. Wora knew there was no backing out now. <"Of course, you dumbass! You're the only cellmate I can name that I've gotten along with."> Listening to Wora lay herself bare, Behn couldn't remember the last time her presence made someone genuinely happy beyond her deft handling of a firearm. She smiled warmly and extended her uninjured arm toward her friend, placing her hand on Wora's knee. <"Hey, I'm not shut in a hole just yet, so buck up!"> Wora sighed, content. <"You're right. Just don't go scaring me like that again, okay?"> <"Sure, sis."> <"So, how long did the doc say you'd be stuck here for?"> <"They reckon they'll see if this'll take in a day or so. If it does, I'm free to go. Well, as free as I can be on this rock, at least. I'll be back to see your lack of modesty again soon."> Wora's expression grew smug. <"You know you love it."> she mocked. Behn sniggered, transitioning into full on laughter when Wora mockingly began lifting her shirt. Wora joined in, letting the joy of the moment wash away any lingering doubts and worries. Now she knew that she, her friend, and their bond, was safe. ~~~ The bus glode smoothly past shop-lined streets as Mark stared out the window, attempting to map out the city in his mind while wondering where he could get a set of headphones built for his ears. It stopped outside a family-owned grocer to let waiting passengers board. Before the bus could take off again, a thin man carrying a basket of food approached Mark. <"What're you doing here?"> he asked belligerently. Mark was shaken from his window watching by the man's question. "Can I help you?" he asked politely. <"This bus isn't built foryou."> the basket-carrier stated with certainty. <"Get off."> Mark blinked. "... Pardon?" The man's already scowl-creased face scrunched further, his jowls parted just enough for a thin white line of fangs to be visible between his jaws. <"Are you mocking me? Get off the damn bus!"> he insisted, shooting a finger at the side door. Mark knew then what was happening. He knew it would happen eventually, but he wasn't entirely prepared for the sensation of the event itself. Still, he retained his composure. "Please leave me be, sir." he said firmly. The man, clearly knowing that he wasn't going to get his way alone, stormed up to the driver's seat and demanded Mark to be removed from the vehicle. <"Buddy, the guy ain't causin' no trouble. You leave 'em alone or you're walkin'."> the driver said matter-of-factly. The man, finally understanding his place in the proceedings, shot a nasty look Mark's way, and stepped off the bus. "That guy on the bus surprised me. I've noticed that nobody here's all that subtle, but nobody's been that forward thus far." said Mark, recounting yesterday's encounter with a concerned citizen on public transport. Rilk'r, Mark's companion at the cafeteria table, nodded along to the human's retelling, aware of the encounter in question from today's episode of MarkWatch. <"Don't let 'em get to you. You really shouldn't have to put up with that shit, but if it's just a handful of belligerent dicks, you don't have much to worry about. You stay the course, and they'll get over it eventually."> While Mark wasn't entirely convinced, stressing over factors out of one's control did little good. "Yeah." The conversation paused as the two men dug into their lunches, picking up again when Rilk'r asked: <"So, how's that gym treating you?"> "Pretty well, actually. It's a bit stuffy, but I can't complain too much. I imagine you learned about that from the news?" Rilk'r looked hurt. <"The news? I helped put the damn thing together!"> Mark choked on his water, drawing eyes from employees that he had hoped would be used to his presence by now. "Wait, really? You never told me!" <"I like my customers to leave their reviews after they've put my work to the test."> Rilk'r said smugly. "Heh. Well, I've certainly seen worse equipment." He would never forget that one squat rack in Anytime Fitness that fell apart the instant he re-racked his bar. Rilk'r chuckled. <"Glowing praise, that."> And once again, the two men put their chat on hold while they ate. Rilk'r cleaned his tray before Mark, to neither's surprise, and waved as he returned to work. Uns'la pointed a finger gun as she linked up with Rilk'r, Mark returned it. As his tray neared empty, Arnd, who too was using the break in the day's lesson to eat her fill, came up to the table. <"You think you could pick up the pace a bit? We still have the last decade of the Crisis of the Peaks to cover, and I don't want it spilling into my free day."> she asked, the tapping of her foot on the tiled floor akin to a metronome with no patience for rhythm. "What do you think I'm doing?" replied Mark, now shoveling his gravy-soaked wobunil chunks into his mouth at as fast a pace as their size allowed. Before long, and with many painful attempts to swallow mouthfuls in excess of his throat's capacity, Mark emptied his tray. He also made a mental note to, if he ever made it back to Earth, tell Percy about that time he almost took too much meat for his throat to handle, giggling childishly to himself. After he quickly gulped down water from a paper cup, Mark was ready to return. Arnd watched impatiently as Mark nodded to the guard stationed outside the bar, with her impatience morphing to simple annoyance when Mark paused to pull out his data pad. This annoyance turned to frustration when Mark turned on his heels and walked back toward her. "I gotta go, T'aro wants me in R&D immediately. We'll pick up with Crisis when I get back." And with that, Mark was off toward the elevators and Arnd was left watching him go. Jan'u came up to her, licking his jowls clean of gravy. <"What's he up to now?"> Arnd deflated. <"Doesn't matter. Come on, Nelert's Bones is out and I wanna see if it lives up to the trailers."> Beneath the mountain, with K'ul stalwart by his side, T'aro paced, second-guessing whether this was a good idea. Yesterday, as the moon shone as a silver crescent high above the city, T'aro oversaw the first test of a circular bone saw attachment to F'ejen's shield-focused surgical tool. The device whirred, the multitude of tiny energy blades blurring together to form a single, uniform disc of light at the tip of the apparatus. With precision, F'ejen lowered the device down on to, in absence of replicated human bone, a plate of what T'aro dubbed 'Malante Squared', a substance that acted as a less refined, less dense x'erren attempt at N.L.N.A, the substance that comprised the hull of Mark's detached cockpit. Upon contact, the saw squealed as it battled its target, but both it and F'ejen held firm, and the doctor soon excavated a near-perfect square from the mass. A few moments after F'ejen shut the device off, he was told that this attachment too passed safety and stability tests. F'ejen nodded proudly at this victory and ticked off yet another test on his notepad he pulled from his breast pocket; thus far, among other tools, he had successfully tested: a scalpel with adjustable length, a needle tip, a drill, and scissors. F'ejen stepped out of the testing room, discarding his gloves and shoes, and loosing his ears. <"Well, what's next on the docket?"> he asked, softly massaging his aching ears. <"Staples. Although how you plan on making this work, I have no clue."> replied T'aro, looking over the list of planned tools. Listening to T'aro launch into further detail of the task's complications, F'ejen couldn't help but think. <"So, remind me; Mark's more or less on your side now?"> <"He promised that the antics were over, so ostensibly, yes."> <"... Then shouldn't you tell him about all this?"> asked F'ejen, gesturing to the testing room where a team was examining the surgical apparatus. T'aro looked at the doctor in stunned disbelief. <"Out of the question. If you've read Mark's contract, and I know you have, you'll know he has the legal right to shut this entire operation down at any time he so wishes. The instant he sees us developing this technology, I've no doubt in my mind that his first act would be to demand that development ceases. His second would be to demand a release from his contract, which is also his legal right."> <"I take it then he still doesn't trust us?"> <"He said so himself."> said T'aro pointedly. <"And do you think he'll trust us any more if we continue keeping secrets?"> questioned F'ejen, turning to face the administrator. T'aro turned in kind. <"I am the director of this project and I will not be questioned."> <"I have been a surgeon since before you came of age."> the doctor stated firmly, letting his experience drive his words. <"I have worked at many hospitals and have tended toverymany patients. The longer you lie to a patient, even if the lie is entirely for the patient's benefit, the harsher they react when the truth comes out. When Mark tried to escape, he was in a panic, trying to tunnel away from the force he thought he could not fight. But what do you think he'll to do now that he's come to know us, to adapt to us? I know you have the means to bring him in again, but none of them are quiet enough for you to get away with it."> F'ejen leaned in, craning his neck upward to get face-to-face with his junior. <"You open up now, or the decades you've spent on this project go up in smoke."> T'aro could say nothing to the physician as he produced a pack of lija from his pocket, bit down on a pod, and ambled out of the room saying that he was going to bed. T'aro stood blinking into the silent air for a few long minutes after the doctor had left, before deciding: <"Not the samples, that's too far."> T'aro's pacing and fretting was interrupted by Mark rounding the corner into R&D, his face a portrait of curiosity and apprehension. "You called?" he said flatly. T'aro straightened. <"Yes, I did. I'm glad you could make it so promptly."> Mark shrugged. "You said immediately. So, what's up?" T'aro turned, gesturing Mark to follow. <"As you well know, I wouldn't be doing my job as head of extraterrestrial affairs if I didn't look after the health of those that fall under my jurisdiction. I've already made steps to accommodate this in providing you proper nourishment and the personal gym - which I've noticed you've taken quite a fancy to."> Mark nodded, he would be lying if he denied his enjoyment of having regular, challenging exercise as part of his daily routine again. <"Regardless, this is just the surface; I'm frankly shocked you've not yet fallen ill, I'll chalk that up to your immune system being just as hardy as your body. That body, Mister Stevens, however durable, is still mortal. If you were to suffer an injury, it would need to be tended to. You could recover from nicks and bruises on your own, but more severe injuries: broken bones, deep lacerations, etcetera, those would require medical attention, even surgery."> Mark didn't know whether or not to ease himself now that the man was getting to the damned point, as said point's subject matter put him on edge. <"Unfortunately,"> T'aro continued. <"The same implacable nature of your physiology that keeps you safe from the same rounds that would put a hole in a x'erren man large enough to stick one's hand through, would similarly keep standard surgical tools from being able to do their work. Thus, when doctor Rour brought forth the idea of using projected shields in place of metal or glass blades, I had to jump at the chance."> With impeccable timing that told Mark that T'aro had thoroughly rehearsed this speech of his, the X'erren gestured Mark through a door to his left. Upon entry, Mark realized that his initial mixed feelings were nothing compared to what he felt looking upon the implements in person, their pristine, rounded forms catching the light in a way that made them look both sacred and profane, and they weren't even turned on! T'aro stood beside the human. <"As you can see, we've developed a range of attachments, with more on the way. I understand any apprehension you may have, Mister Stevens, but you must understand that without this, there is no way for anyone in x'erren space to aid you should the need arise."> "... Have you tested these?" <"On varying metals, yes. And I can confirm that these tools are up to the job."> "Then, may I see them in action?" T'aro knew not to ease himself just yet, but part of him was glad that Mark remained at least outwardly calm. <"If I can manage to rouse doctor Rour, then yes."> In the tense calm following T'aro's message to F'ejen, Mark found his eyes always drifting toward the assortment of attachments laid out on the table beyond the viewing window, and tried to fit each adapter to a purpose. He was in the middle of inspecting the needle tip when the door opened to F'ejen, who, upon seeing Mark, immediately sported a smile. <"Mark! How are you?"> "Just fine, thanks." <"Mister Rour! Glad you're here. Now, shall we begin the demonstration?"> said T'aro as though yesterday's conversation never happened. <"That we shall."> replied F'ejen in kind. And after F'ejen donned his surgical garb, he did just that, lighting the space and filling the air with the sound of humming shields projectors and screeching metal as he sliced, drilled, and punctured a sheet of malante2. All the while, T'aro explained the substance's origin, reminding Mark that, given its nature as a recreation of an entirely human creation, he could shut down its production and research thereof at any moment. Mark politely declined. Before long, each tool, including the staples, had been demonstrated in full, and F'ejen rejoined the pair in the viewing room. <"So,"> he said. <"what do you think?"> Mark thought a moment. "I think that this is not only a brilliant piece of tech, but that it exists for my sake is very considerate of you both." His words, while genuine, were tinged with doubt, something that his x'erren listeners were all too aware of. "I do wish, however, that you would have notified me beforehand, for both the tools and the metal." F'ejen and T'aro apologized for their lack of foresight and, with a gesture from Mark that he was satisfied with the showcase, followed him out into the hallway. As the trio made their way back to the surface, K'ul keeping stride with T'aro, Mark tapped F'ejen on the shoulder. "Hey, are you free for a bit? I have some questions I'd like to ask." <"Of course, we can talk over lunch."> T'aro was mildly distressed at the apparent desire for him to not be present, but he understood. He stopped the pair, telling them to go on without him as he had to oversee maintenance performed on the gym. He watched as Mark and F'ejen rounded a corner and hoped for the best. F'ejen returned to the cafeteria table with a small mantan leaf wrap, understanding that Mark went without food because he had already ate. <"So, bud, what do you need to know?"> Mark had loosened somewhat in T'aro's absence, but still hesitated slightly when asking. <"Are those tools really for surgery?"> The doctor paused mid-bite. <"I brought up the idea of using shields as a substitute for metal, why wouldn't they be for surgery?"> "I know, but that's not what I meant. It's more..." Mark looked around to see if anyone suspicious was watching. "Are they really there to mend injuries, are they really there to help me?" F'ejen laid his wrap down, sighing in understanding. <"Look, man, I get that you don't trust T'aro, I wouldn't trust him either after what he's pulled. But I can tell you straight that this is legit. You can trust this."> Mark didn't know if he felt any better after having it said to him so plainly. "I just hope they never have to be used." <"No true surgeon ever wants their tools to leave storage. If I had my way, everyone would always be healthy and surgery would be a dead field."> He bit into his wrap, and Mark agreed. ~~~ Du'fra stepped out through the hospital's front doors, a prescription for pain medication in his hand and a thick cast on his arm. It took time and a lot of pain to realign the halves of his shattered forearm, and by the time the cast was on, the doctors had confirmed that this level of damage could take at minimum four months to heal, and years to regain full strength once he had the internal plates and pins removed. Before he left the ward, he opted to hire a Spare Hand: a robotic arm strapped to one's shoulder controlled by brainwaves monitored by a small headpiece, to replace one's out of commission arm while it healed, held aloft in a sling. Healthcare was a dream in Ta'X'rtana, and thus the only money that left Du'fra's coffers was the hire fee for the Spare Hand, and a handful of chump change for a surprisingly good hospital meal on his way out. He finished his meal in the office courtyard, carelessly tossing the container aside when his taxi arrived. As the vehicle navigated the city's airspace, Du'fra checked his cruiser's tracker, and found it to be impounded in a lot across town. He decided that it could rot there for all he cared, he still had the cruiser he got in his divorce. He was both shocked and glad that the parasites now sitting in the executive chairs at X'rtan Freight hadn't stolen anything from him while he was out. With that thought, he searched The Flow for any news pertaining to X'rtan Freight, and came by an article reporting on the new Acting Chief Vuk'li's ascension to the top of the company and his donation of 500 billion ker'se to the Men-te Relief Fund to commemorate his rise. <"That brakk fucker worked in marketing before he was hired there, of course he'd pull a stunt like this."> growled Du'fra. In his fury, he instinctively reached out for a pack of first-grade lija pods, and remembered the one thing in his old cruiser that he would miss. Errant dust was blown off the rooftop by the taxi's arrival to Du'fra's apartment. Air-capable taxi fare took a bigger bite out of one's pockets than a standard ride, but Du'fra didn't care. Once inside his building, Du'fra quickly reminded himself where the set of keys to his ex wife's cruiser were, and then got to work. Where it once felt drab and lifeless, his office now felt fresh, given its new purpose. Typing with an artificial hand was awkward despite the practice doctors mandated before Du'fra could take it home with him, and he continually made spelling errors that served only to add to his mounting frustrations. Even with this new complication, however, it didn't take long for Du'fra to find what he was looking for. Arnd Kolr's online life was scarce. All Du'fra could dig up was a seldom used Conclave account, the last activity of which was to trawl the forum of a middlingly popular book series and the account of her work hard-play hard daughter. A daughter that, with a quick search, Du'fra found to be in prison for gang activity dating back years. Familial association was not proper grounds for legal action, though, so he had to find another avenue. From news sources, he read claims that she was either hired by the government or arrested and held in X'rtani House until further notice. All Du'fra knew as of yet was that she, in her current position, was effectively untouchable. At least, if Du'fra was alone. It was common knowledge among those who did any cursory research that Arnd had close ties to Mark, someone who, though protected, was in a state of political flux, with talks going back and forth regarding the alien and how to handle him. And if politicians listened to anything, it was money, and significant public outcry. And thus, the plan was simple: Either through generous donations, the outspoken voices of concerned citizens, or a mixture of both, swing the Council in opposition to Mark, destabilizing his and therefore Arnd's position. This should result in numerous investigations being launched, the likelihood being high that at least one would uncover the connection between Arnd and Vuk'li, putting Vuk'li's position in jeopardy and likely landing him with fines and jail time. The resulting controversy should put immense pressure on him, leaving nothing left to do but keep the pressure up until he resigns. It was elegant in its simplicity. The only problem was getting started. He would have to be smart with his donations, hitting the sweet spot between being too small to notice and too large to be innocent. And thus he knew to start with his alternative solution; he would have to track down an anti-Mark group. But he was still weary from his surgery, and he wasn't too concerned with losing a day of progress, and decided instead to kick his feet up and relax, maybe fall asleep to reruns of that one talk show with the cute young presenter. Prime kurjan ribs delivered to his door and top shelf X'ogan reed wine were the night's menu, with entertainment courtesy of one Wer'eled, a host who seemed determined to wear the thinnest and loosest fabric the censors would let her get away with. As Du'fra indulged, his mind drifted back, as it always would on nights like these, to the days of his relative youth. He was a 34 year old up-and-comer at X'rtan Freight after acing his interview for administrating light post in central Ta'X'rtana and surrounds, with a brand new studio apartment financed by his father, and a charming young woman to call his own: Ber'a Neyil. She had energy exploding from every inch of her tiny body and could talk her way in and out of damn near anything, which was useful skill for a saleswoman. On glorious, youthful nights when they were both tired from work and needed release, Ber'a was known to signal the beginning of the night's events by sporting a lacy gown and demanding that Du'fra follow his instincts. Looking back, Du'fra could name little else he enjoyed from his marriage. Time wore on and things grew comfortable, Du'fra couldn't be more content. Ber'a, however, viewed her continued entrenchment in a cozy routine to be increasingly stale, and sought an escape by suggesting to move away from the city. Du'fra disagreed, and thus the couple engaged in their first fight, with tempers and moods only worsening from there. Though it felt like an eternity of squabbling and growing resentment, only a few months had passed since that initial spat before divorce papers were being signed. By that point, Ber'a was more than done with Du'fra, not caring if he kept her cruiser. Du'fra never saw her again. Every time he reminisced on his marriage, Du'fra debated whether or not staying was a good idea, before shrugging and continuing on with whatever he was doing. Stars twinkled faintly in the gaps between moonlit clouds, and Du'fra began to drift, slowly, into the waiting arms of sleep. Day broke, and Du'fra was jolted awake by a sudden pain in his arm, the surgeon warned him about that. His unhooked the Spare Hand from his shoulder, the throbbing he felt was an indication that he should probably take it off before he goes to sleep in future. Breakfast was pe'ka pieces drowning in lija sauce that disappeared down Du'fra's gullet with grotesque haste, there was work to do. Simply typing Mark Stevens into a search bar brought up more results than he knew what to do with. Forums arguing back and forth over why he was on Kerc-en and whether or not he should be allowed to roam free; the supremely tacky MarkWatch page that practically begged him to appear on the show; and, oddly enough, a site claiming to 'spread truths' that would have a hard time convincing even the most hardcore conspiracy theorists. If the government was trying in earnest to kill Arnd, then how in the scream-rent flaming air of the Pit was she still alive? Laughable nonsense. Still, his search bore some fruit, with mentions of live meetings to debate all matters Mark, with an unsubtle negative lean in the poster's text. This, he could use. The doorbell beeped, pulling Du'fra out of his concentration. He strapped on his Spare Hand and went to answer. The door opened to a police officer whose expression was nothing but business. <"Mister Du'fra Neem?"> he asked. <"Yes."> The officer glanced slightly to the left. <"Do you have a permit for that apparatus?"> Du'fra quickly flashed the document in question. <"Might I ask what this visit is about, officer?"> He knew he would get the answer either way, but asking helped his confidence. <"You have been summoned to attend a hearing at the Central Municipal Tribunal, to determine your sentence for your engagement in an illegal Kre'gadol duel. This hearing will be undertaken on the 15th Dawn of Se'te. The full details are listed in this document."> With form befitting a man in uniform, the lawman presented an envelope. Du'fra took the envelope only because waiting to let the situation sink in would take too long. The officer nodded, and left, the door slamming shut in his wake. A thorough reading of the summons told Du'fra that everything was as standard: He and the other guilty party were to each present a defense either with their own lawyers or lawyers provided by the state, with expected sentences ranging between two to seven months. At the mention of a month shy of an entire year being snatched away from him, Du'fra's grip tightened on the paper. However, he knew that he would have to face this some day soon, and he had slowly been steeling himself ever since he declared the duel that fateful night. Now, he knew there was no turning back, and he was prepared to learn just how much he was willing to pay for justice. ----- [Next]
