Deconstructing the mythology episodes. Part 1: Kate's memories until early 1990 (First part of Requiem)

2020.09.18 13:40 TessaBissolli Deconstructing the mythology episodes. Part 1: Kate's memories until early 1990 (First part of Requiem)

In this series, we will examine the mythology episodes, in light of what we can believe or not, what we find confirmation of, and what is demolished by applying a bit of critical thinking.
When we get to these episodes, it is extremely important to keep in mind the concept of point of view (POV). What does a character know, and when did they learn it. The easiest way to confuse the audience is to play with the POV, so they assume that just because they or another character know something, all the other characters would too.
We have had three kinds of mythology episodes: memories, hallucinations and tales.
The memories are Kate's in Requiem; Ilya's in Orion RS, forced by Skovic; and two kinds of memories remembered by Liz: the ones in 2.10, aided/forced by Dr. Orchard, and her unaided memories in 1.09, 1.17 and 2.22 of the fire, as well as 3.02 (burying a can with Katarina) and the more dubious one of 3.03 (Katarina writing in her diary).
Just as I did on the previous series, in this series I will try to analyze the apparent narrative of the mythology episodes to see where it falls apart and where is holds true. While I am trying to stay within one episode, I am also aiming for a timeline understanding and how they all work with each other, so there will be some jumping back and forth, and references to the previous series and other episodes, especially when they reference mythology.

Let us take Requiem, accepted as being Kate's memories, and thus confirmed. All this means is that Requiem the way she remembers things. Most of it can be taken as being real and true: things happened as Kate remembered, but with any memory, it can be faulty, as Red observed, memories are not tapes, played back each time.
For example, we have in Requiem two calls made by Katarina to Kate in the motel.
We do not know if this is how Katarina looked when she made the calls to Kate.
We can trust Kate was told those things, as that is HER memory of the events. But we cannot trust the images we are shown of Katarina. Where she was, what she looked like, etc., because Kate does not KNOW these things.
This is what Kate knows. She got calls from Katarina.
It might well be where Katarina was, but until we are shown the same images by someone who saw the scene being with Katarina at the time, it remains Kate's imagining what Katarina looked like, and where she was.
I accept all of Requiem's scenes as the way Kate remembers things, with the exceptions of those phone calls from Katarina.
A couple of items remain questionable, but we have had confirmation of most items in there: her going as a nanny, Katarina arriving back after a trip, three months later, the scene where Katarina kills the Soviet agent, and Kate cleans it up, finding Katarina in the woods, the unused scene with young Kirk when he says goodbye to Masha, and then the abduction. What she remembers after the fire, and culminating in the moments before 1.01 starts, in September of 2013.
The two items that jar were that in Kate's memories, Katarina calls Constantin "Alexander" twice. It was my friend u/jen5225 who realized what this might mean.
Because we know he did not take the name Alexander Kirk until after the fall of the USSR:
Alexander Kirk is the alias of an oligarch who made a fortune after the fall of the Soviet Union buying mining operations for pennies on the dollar.
It makes sense that Constantin found himself in a difficult situation after Katarina was deemed a traitor. The husband of a traitor would have got some nasty encounters with people looking for her: the cabal, the KGB and for a while, "the Americans" or the CIA. A change of name was just necessary. I am surprised he did not change his face too. Or maybe he did.
We know he began to have problems with the Kremlin in 2002.
This might have been because they realized who he was, for when Tom obtains his dossier from Russian intelligence, they know Alexander Kirk is Constantin Rostov, as they have a DNA paternity test showing him to be the father of likely Masha:
TOM: This, um, SVR report, when I talked to you earlier, I hadn't finished reading it.... It's about you. And your father.
So, likely, his problems derive from being found out as Constantin Rostov. At any rate, by 2016, when he enters the scene, having seen Liz on the run with Red, the Russians know who he really is, because of that paternity test.
The writer said using the name Alexander was a "continuity error", but was it? Was recording the lines again with the correct name too difficult? I have my doubts about it. Possible it was, but I am not convinced. too blatant, especially when earlier in the season he had already been called Constantin by Red.

Then Red says:
People think memory - works like a video recorder. The mind records events and then, on cue, plays back an exact replica. In truth, memories are reconstructed more like putting together an ever-changing jigsaw puzzle than replaying a video.
It is possible that Kate remembers Katarina saying Alexander, because that is how she had been hearing about him?:
You don't understand, Kate. I know where they are, and so does Alexander Kirk.
or maybe as u/jen5225 suggests, she had been in contact with him.
So, not everything will be as it seems, as Kate was told half the story, as we will see. but those are her recollection of the events.
Kathryn Nemec was hired as a nanny, with a curriculum vitae that was a fake, for we know from Aram's researching her, she did not go to Northwestern for medicine, or had a Masters in Child Development, at least not under that name. She did not work abroad for diplomatic families, which leave traces when vetted for security, particularly during the Cold War.
Kathryn Nemec. Your references are outstanding. Fluent in Italian, French, German, and Russian. Most of your charges appear to have been in various diplomatic corps. ...You attended medical school at Northwestern, yet you decided not to continue. ... thus, a Master's degree in Child Development.
https://preview.redd.it/tbivlo5lnvn51.png?width=1031&format=png&auto=webp&s=72199603dda49f8df14c25d59f873c78a861e3f4
The facts, as digged up by Aram, are that she worked for an exclusive domestic agency and lived at a few addresses in the Midwest in her 30s. There is even no trace of her working in Canada for the Rostovs.
she [Nemec] disappeared in 1991, just dropped off the grid. Lived at a few addresses in the Midwest in her 30s. Worked at an exclusive domestic staffing agency, but then one day she's just gone. - And there is no more record.
This means that whoever hired her, in books, she was working somewhere in the Midwest. Her sister is living in Chicago in 1991, and then in Wisconsin. Kate's phone exchange is in Chicago, and her fake license has her being born in Chicago.
3 months after hiring Kate, Katarina arrives back from a trip
We see Kate intervene in a fight Katarina is having with a Russian man, sliding a knife to Katarina, which allows Katarina to kill the man.
https://preview.redd.it/srmuozcz0wn51.png?width=1280&format=png&auto=webp&s=5328ae0a699b21ca27178c19449e09b266524b1d
Kate then suggest she would clean up the scene and Katarina would take a shower. In this scene, Katarina is not really seen as being that good at hand to hand combat, even if she is not shy violet.
Kate tells Katarina she knows she is KGB, which makes no sense, as the man killed was KGB. Agents generally kill agents from the other side, which leads me to believe that Kate already knew Katarina was supposed to be KGB and was letting her know it was fine with her. She demonstrates her knowledge of crime scene cleaning and cadaver disposal.
So, whoever sent her to Katarina, it seems Katarina knew or suspected who it was, and accepted a strange nanny with a love for cadavers and what she realized was a fake CV (when she asked how many children had she raised), because who was sending her or who she suspected was.
I cannot imagine a mother taking a nanny that loves cadavers and babies, and who had lied in her CV (make the tally yourself: a pre-medical degree (4/5 years), a few years of medical school (less than 4 ), a Masters degree (1.5 to 2), and then raising at least two sets of siblings for five or six years each set. 19 years for a bare minimum.)
https://preview.redd.it/3hv7xvvwsvn51.png?width=1916&format=png&auto=webp&s=bf136a8c3e961bf7bccfccf9509542bf2e70de94
Katarina asking Kate out of the blue, when she could not prepare, how many children had she raised, was a clue to me Katarina knew this whole CV was a bunch of lies, yet, she still hires and trusts Kate.
In Requiem we see a fake ID with a date of birth of 1953. This tallies, more or less with her being 6/9 in 1962 in the scene of her mother funeral, and puts her turning 30 in 1983/85. While she is supposedly hired by Katarina circa 1987, give or take a year, when Liz is about a year old.
Kate fake ID.
Kate believe it was Red who had hired her.
to keep Elizabeth safe, just like you asked me to all those years ago, when you first put her in my arms as a baby girl.
Red does not correct her that he only hired her in 1997, when Liz was being raised by Sam. So, either Red is letting her believe something which is not true, or Red is accepting that he somehow had a hand in her becoming Liz's nanny. But that knowledge came AFTER he had hired her, because she told Red in 1997:
KATE: Work for you? I don't know you.
We have a known case of Red hiring someone to look over Liz anonymously: an operative from the Major, Tom Keen.
https://preview.redd.it/15vrq0zm2wn51.png?width=917&format=png&auto=webp&s=17197832a5671566fc11cdd0f15d846fab55c71d
THE MAJOR TO TOM: The assignment's deep cover. No timeline, no price tag. This may seem like a cake walk, but it's the kind of assignment that makes me nervous. Our contractor has deep pockets. Demands the best, insists on anonymity.
the two hirings of Kathryn Nemec AKA Kate Kaplan
Kate believed that she had been working for Red for 30 years (1986/87), about the time she went to work for Katarina as a nanny with a fake curriculum vitae and a knowledge of cleaning a crime scene.
KATE TO AGENT GALE: Raymond thinks he out maneuvered me today, but he underestimated my commitment. I've been his cleaner, keeper, and confessor for 30 years.
Uncontested by Red, Kate said that Red had been involved in putting Liz in her care as a baby (Which might be literal or figurative, as in hiring her like he did Tom Keen, anonymously, to keep an eye on Liz).
But what she tells Red undisputed is that he hired twenty years prior. A scene we saw in Requiem, after Annie had been killed, and Kate is working for bail bondsman Little Nikos, circa 1996/97, when he sends Sam to talk to Kate, and then Kate and Red meet.
KATE: Work for you? I don't know you.
RED: I'm not as unknown as you might like to believe, Ms. Nemec.
Red sends Sam to fetch Kate, to offer her a job as his cleaner circa 1997
and then this:
When you hired me, you told me to choose Elizabeth over you. And so I tried to help her disappear to a safe place with her newborn daughter. And for that, you put me down like a mad dog. For the last two decades of my life, you had me convinced I was helping keep Elizabeth safe.
This is an interesting fact, and has become a clue for some fan theories in which Red is Katarina, after a surgery that left her an identical copy, down to voice and height to RR.
Yet, consider:
MEANS I can venture that Red hired Kate anonymously when Liz was a baby, to keep an eye on her, and eventually told Kate it had been him, and since she was cleaning bodies for Katarina, sent by Red, she was technically being a cleaner for him since then.
https://preview.redd.it/bsz95flxlvn51.png?width=1902&format=png&auto=webp&s=4b1773684b2f631cf6120c2ef34420779fc705a1
Kate then comes across Katarina and a man in a car, when Liz is about three years old, which places this scene in 1989. Because if Liz was born in 1985, but she was still four years old at the time of the fire, in December of 1990, then Liz was born in late December 1985.
https://preview.redd.it/6ku1xmkb0wn51.png?width=1613&format=png&auto=webp&s=addc831fede881421f238d40a4614dc6e845dbbd
Kate advices Katarina to break up with this man, a man she calls The American. And considering that she tells Liz that Katarina did not walk away from Raymond until it was too late and Raymond had taken Liz, believing her to be his, this man in the car must be Raymond Reddington. The man she will later blame for setting a set of events in motion which took what she loved from her, in that Katarina killed herself, at least in her view.
https://preview.redd.it/50nn1ox81wn51.png?width=1248&format=png&auto=webp&s=6db29a72349f80fc5517a6a5fe6f2227264cd412
From here, we jump to Liz's earliest memories of her mother, which come in 4.02 and 4.03, as she has been to the Summer palace and after she stole Katarina's diary from an FBI office.

2020.09.17 02:00 SourPatchKidIcarus Pittsburgh is Underrated

Someone posted about why they want to move to Pittsburgh recently, so I thought I'd do the same. It's a bit of a long story. I was kind of bummed recently because I though I was going to have to move to Europe to find an interesting place to live, but when I discovered Pittsburgh, it blew my mind!
I have been researching places to move to for about 2 years. I live near Portland. It took me a few hours to realize that the west coast in general has pretty high prices on its houses. This opened my mind to moving to another state, perhaps far away.
I'm looking for a really cheap house. I discovered that you can get a house under $100k in Chicago if you are OK with living in the southern area, a little outside of the city. Of course, those neighborhoods are pretty dangerous. Not to mention the cost of living and taxes in CH are among the highest around. But, this research was just part of expanding my knowledge.
I eventually narrowed my choices to Philadelphia, Houston, and Atlanta. Each of these three cities had ample music venues, comedy clubs, high population, and some interesting culture to learn about. I decided to visit Atlanta because plane tickets are dirt cheap and the cost of living/safety seemed best there. I had a lot of fun during my visit, and I decided it would be a great place to live!
That was back in February. Once the pandemic came in full swing, housing prices shifted all over the nation. Atlanta suddenly no longer had an abundance of cheap houses in good enough condition. I have some experience renovating, so I would be ok with having to do a bit of minor work.
It also turns out that car insurance is crazy expensive in ATL. I still think I might end up there, it could happen, but I eventually started researching more places I might want to live.
I came across Pittsburgh probably a dozen times when researching various cities based off of affordability, but I had passed it by every time. I think this is mainly because of the name "Pittsburgh". Let's be honest, it's a bit of a weird name. I would always think about armpits when I heard that name.
Zooming around on Zillow, I was comparing the amount of cheap houses in Chicago to Philly, and I decided to check out Detroit just for fun. Lo and behold, detroit has hundreds and hundreds of beautiful brick homes for less than $100k. The problem is, they are in Detroit, and that city has a ways to go before it becomes an enjoyable place to live for me.
So, I was determined to find some brick houses on Zillow for cheap in a good city. Pittsburgh just happened to be in between Philly and Detroit, so I zoomed in to see if I could find some nice houses. Lo and behold again, I found them! There might not be as many, but Pittsburgh has the highest amount of cheap brick houses that I could find after Detroit. And so, I started researching Pittsburgh!
The first thing that struck me was the Cathedral of Learning at U of P. I love European architechture, and that was one thing that constantly frustrated me about looking around the nation for where to move. There aren't many places in the US where good architecture is abundant, at least compared to European nations.
But, not only does Pittsburgh have the Cathedral, but it also has a ton of bridges! I love bridges. Portland has a few great ones, too.
Pittsburgh also has 8 or 9 comedy clubs, according to Google. This is a huge plus in my opinion. I took some improv classes at one point in a smaller town, and I really want to get back into that in a bigger city.
Pittsburgh has 4 (or 5?) smaller music venues and 2 larger ones (Stage AE, The Rex). I play guitar and I'm occasionally in a band, so having a decent music scene is a plus. Although, I'm curious to know if the DIY music scene (house shows, etc.) is a thing here. Please let me know!
Pittsburgh is also the birthplace of Batman (Michael Keaton) and Anthony Jeselnik. I accidentally discovered these facts while looking through YouTube videos on Pittsburgh. Also, The Dark Knight Rises was partly filmed in Pittsburgh, as well as a bunch of other movies. I'm a freelance video editor, so being in a place with a film industry presence could lead to some interesting work. There's also a tax credit for Pennsylvania filmmakers.
Wikipedia mentions that Pittsburgh has the largest population of Eastern European immigrants per capita among US cities. I have had a thing for Bulgarian folk music for several years, and this is just another idiosyncrasy that draws me toward moving here.
I'm a millennial, and we apparently rated Pittsburgh the 4th best city for dating. Source: https://www.apartmentlist.com/renter-life/the-best-worst-cities-for-dating-2019
In fact, the only other city from that dating study that I was considering is Columbus, OH. I would probably enjoy living in Austin or Nashville if I could afford a house there, but Pittsburgh just checks a lot of interesting boxes for me while also having a large amount of cheap houses.
Lastly, I'm a big fan of accents and language. Just the fact that people on this subreddit use the word "yinz" makes me smile. Some people have said that the Pittsburgh accent is fading away, but even still, I think I would enjoy knowing just one person with a local accent that was different from mine.
I'm a bit concerned about air and water quality, but those things can be dealt with to some degree (air purifiers, water filters).
So, I am planning on visiting Pittsburgh when it makes sense to do so. With the virus still being at large, and thus the comedy and music clubs being less active, I think I will wait a while. But, in the mean time, I appreciate everyone posting on reddit. Cheers!

2020.09.13 21:50 kellyscon Considering a move to a smaller city, but concerned about the dating pool

A job opportunity brought me from the western part of Michigan to Chicago where I've lived for 3 years. It's been a great experience, but I've started missing life back home and have come to realize that I'm not meant for big city living after all. Many people love it here for the nightlife, bars, restaurant scene, mass transit, whereas I have different desires like easy access to nature, parks, and hiking. Last year, I began to reevaluate whether I see myself staying in Chicago, as I was experiencing a lot of nostalgia and thought I'd give it a few months to pass. It still hasn't. Here's why:
I feel like city living is "stifling" my progression in life. I'm 27 and have always thought I'd be settled down, have a house with a yard, married and with a family by now. Everyone I know from high school and college are on their 2nd and 3rd child, whereas my life has become the complete opposite: I overpay for a tiny studio apartment, my closest friends in the city have since moved away, I have no dating prospects and slowly losing my desire to grow in my job. If I had the choice, I'd choose to be a stay-at-home mom rather than pursue a career.
I admit that this might be a case of "grass is greener" syndrome, but I can't help but think that I'd have an easier time achieving my ideal life elsewhere. I don't see myself affording a condo/house in the city, but I'd be able to if I were back home. I also sense that the Chicago dating scene (as with any other big city) is competitive and that I don't fit the stereotype of what city men are looking for (I'm more of an outdoors-y country girl).
Dating has been a big thing for me lately. Having just turned 27 has made me feel like time is passing me by. I just downloaded dating apps for the first time last week and went on my first date. The guy said he couldn't see himself living anywhere else than the city. My stomach dropped. I knew I'd be lying to myself if I agreed. Long story short, there was no second date.
So, here's the dilemma: As much as I want to move back home, I've been reading a lot of local Reddit threads where people constantly complain how hard it is to meet someone because they marry young there. It's very discouraging, yet odd to hear "how bad the dating scene is" when I've had the complete opposite experience: I've had more people approach me and strike up conversations in public back home than I've had here in Chicago (hence downloading the dating apps). I've also received more matches from guys my type while browsing the apps back home compared to Chicago. Should I just ignore these collective opinions since my experience proves otherwise, or might they have a point that I should take into consideration before making a move?
As I see it, Chicago has a large pool of prospects but I'm not sure there's a large pool of people looking for serious relationships like I am. Whereas back home, there might be a smaller pool of prospects but I feel like I'd have an easier time finding someone who also wants to settle down sooner rather than later.
I know I'm over-analyzing this and perhaps too concerned with placing this decision solely on comparing dating scenes, but I'm fearful that if I move away from Chicago, I move away from potential SO-meeting opportunities (though my experience here proves otherwise...) I would hate to move somewhere where the dating scene is even worse - especially at such a critical age in life. I'm just feeling unhappy living in Chicago and not sure how much more time I should waste pondering this decision. Thoughts?


tl;dr: Comparing dating scenes between big and mid-size cities has me questioning whether I should move. Haven't had any luck dating in a big city and feel like I'm suffering from "grass is greener" syndrome because of it.

2020.09.09 20:36 meowimphyllis [Wisconsin- Circuit Court] OWI, PAC >.15, Failure to Obey Traffic Sign, Operating W/O Valid License. 1st Offense

This weekend I was in a drunk driving accident. I know it is horribly horribly stupid and I usually don’t drive regularly as I live in the city of Chicago, but I was visiting my friends lake house and ended up driving their car home and we crashed into a tree on the way.
There may have been witnesses but it was late at night and by the time the police arrived at the scene neither of us were in the vehicle. I was arrested for the DUI because I am short and the driver seat was adjusted for someone of my height.
I really cannot afford a lawyer to start this case right now as I am unemployed and they need $$ right away. My license was also suspended before this happened so it will not affect me much having a further suspension (I think) because I don’t have a car and don’t drive. I was also given a form for administrative review of the suspension of my license for 6 months and I don’t know if I personally send in that review vs. a lawyer if it will be helpful.
I’m just worried about all of these charges adding up on my record. I spoke with a lawyer and they told me in the state of Wisconsin because the first OWI isn’t a criminal charge they have a law where an OWI charge cannot be lessened.
Please give me some insight on what to do! Should I just wait for my court date to save money and pay the citations? (No appearance required)
Should I myself put in an administrative review to not have my license suspended further? Please help!

2020.09.08 13:21 Glass-Ad8832 First time DUI w/ Injury CA

First time DUI w/ Injury in CA
Going to try and make this short and sweet.
My girlfriend and I broke up in November of 2019. I worked at a bar and on the night we broke up stayed after work and drank much more than I thought I could handle.
After the bar I (allegedly) walked to my car and made the foolish decision to drive it home. About a mile away from home I hit a median and spun into another car stopped at the light. As well, I got out of my car and started to walk away from it as I was trying to figure out what had just happened. The officers thought this was my attempt to escape and forced me to the ground.
All in all I was charged with: 1. DUI with BAC above .08 (it was .22, very high) 2. Resisting arrest 3. Fleeing the scene 4. DUI with injury (initially a felony but dropped to a misdemeanor upon my 12 hour jail holding)
My first court date was schedule for January of 2020 and this date was cancelled by the courts for a problem they were having in the court house. My next court date in March of 2020 was cancelled due to COVID. The following court date in August of 2020 has now been pushed back to November of 2020 (almost a year after the incident) and I haven’t seen a day in court nor have I heard from the individual that I “injured”.
My questions are:
  1. What is the likely outcome of this ?
  2. When can I expect to be driving again ? (My DMV suspension has been over with since June, but since I can’t get into court I have no idea what type of suspension the judge will impose given it has been a year since the accident). I ask this because I currently live alone in California as I attend school here. I have literally not a single person I can rely on for transportation.
  3. I am originally from Chicago and planned to move back after I graduate in December of 2020, a month after my first court arraignment/appearance. Will this prohibit me from moving back to Chicago with my family and force me to stay in California ?
PS: I am a 23 year old student about to graduate from California State University, Fullerton. I have no prior criminal record and am tremendously aware that I made an awful mistake that night.

2020.09.05 02:02 InsertUsernameHere02 [Event] The Long March

With the end of Tom Cotton’s first term coming, the Democratic Party is preparing itself once again to go through a clown-car primary to find out who will lead the party against the incumbent president. Most democrats are quite confident that they can win - Cotton’s approval has consistently gone down while in power due to the total refusal of Democrats to support his agenda, in a reversal of the Republican strategy under the Obama presidency. This primary would be interesting for a wide variety of reasons - it would be the first contested primary since 2020, the first one since the covid recession, and also, interestingly for pundits, the first one since Iowa stopped being the first in the nation caucuses. After the disaster of the 2020 caucuses, Iowa switched to primaries, and the DNC made them move their date to Super Tuesday, letting New Hampshire come first. In order to maintain a connection with their Rust Belt states, however, as well as allowing Democratic voters a voice, Illinois has been moved to the second primary, before Nevada or South Carolina.
A dozen various people have announced that they will be running. In the early crop, the pundit class is convinced that the primary has already seen its two largest contenders - Gavin Newsom, former governor of California, and Pete Buttigieg, former candidate and Cuomo administration member, who has spent the four years since Cotton entered the white house essentially campaigning to be president. Interestingly, Kamala Harris did not announce in this early wave - causing many to wonder if the former Vice President would enter the race at all. However, she announced in April, and quickly surged to the same tier as Buttigieg and Newsom.
A week later, Sylvia Santana, governor of Michigan, announced her intention to run. She announced the campaign in Detroit, saying “this is not just a campaign to be the nominee, but a campaign to reforge the entire Democratic Party, from an institution of neoliberal corporate governance, into a tool of the working class.” The campaign has quickly become associated with Our Revolution, and many of its staffers have deep ties to the DSA. Most interestingly, it has endorsed a primary challenger against every sitting “corporate democrat” in national office, and has endorsed numerous candidates in primaries over Republican-held seats. Santana has made it very clear that she views the Democratic establishment as her enemy first and foremost, and one that needs to be beaten before the challenge can be taken to the Republicans.
A month into her campaign, retired Vermont senator Bernie Sanders endorsed Santana and puts out the following statement: “8 years ago, I ran for President. At the time, I believed that while the Democratic Party was too controlled by big money, they had good intentions. I was wrong. The only way to change this party, and this country, is the path my good friend Sylvia has adopted. A full political revolution. This is former Senator Bernard Sanders, and I am endorsing Governor Santana for President.” This message unified much of the left of the party behind Santana, but it was still considered nearly impossible for her to win by most of the pundits.
The New Hampshire primary was the first in the country, and the one where the full might of the clown car was still present. The votes broke down along the following lines. Santana received 36% of the vote, and handily won the state. Buttigieg won 19%, and managed to take second. Harris received 16%, and Newsom received 12%, with the rest distributed among the rest of the clown car. Newsom dropped out that night (along with most of the minor candidates), stating that his focus will be on the campaign to make California into seven states (notes: see calimorenia post) and that all three candidates have now agreed to back the plan. He also, interestingly, endorsed Buttigieg, which was seen as quite a blow to Harris considering that he should have been supporting her due to her California roots.
Next came Illinois, second for the first time in a competitive primary. People are totally unsure of how it will vote – predictions range from Chicago machine politics sweeping it for Buttigieg, or black voters winning it for Kamala, or Santana winning on a rust belt coalition. The final breakdown saw Santana receiving 46% of the vote, Harris receiving 24%, and Buttigieg receiving 19% (map). However, despite the fact that Buttigieg and Harris seemed about evenly matched, with Harris actually winning in delegates, Harris dropped out 3 days after Illinois and endorsed Buttigieg. Unknown to the public, Buttigieg promised her the position of Attorney General in a Buttigieg administration in a closed-doors meeting.
The next phase of the race was seen as the real gauntlet for Santana. Nevada was a blowout (58-37) for Santana, but the real victory was her taking of South Carolina in an incredibly close matchup - and in spite of the aging James Clyburn’s endorsement of Buttigieg. Santana won it 51-46, and quite importantly, a higher percentage of her voters were black than the overall electorate, allowing her to avoid the bad-faith criticism that other left-wing campaigns had faced for failing to reach out to this group. At this point, Santana was seen as nearly unstoppable. However, Buttigieg had already rallied his donors, and engaged in an absolute blitz of ad spending, all slated for the days between South Carolina and Super Tuesday.
The two camps head to Super Tuesday, knowing that this would decide whether the race was essentially over, or if it would be a long hard fight for the nomination.
State Santana Buttigieg Winner

Arkansas 44 53 Buttigieg
Maine 46 51 Buttigieg
Massachusetts 55 42 Santana

Virginia 45 52 Buttigieg
California 60 36 Santana
Colorado 56 39 Santana
Utah 53 45 Santana
Vermont**** 48 47 Santana
Iowa 47 51 Buttigieg
* It was too close to call on the night of; recounts eventually found that Buttigieg just barely won
** Oklahoma was delivered by the socialist stuff Liquid has been working on + native stuff
*** Texas was won off of a similar trend as what won Santana the Nevada primary - Latino voters of all ages consistently voting for a social-democratic agenda
**** Vermont was close enough that many believe that Sanders’ campaigning - he showed up at a couple rallies and appeared in a number of ads in the state - was probably what turned the state
At this point, the media was split between shrilly insisting that the race wasn’t over, and looking into why Santana was able to win. Ultimately, it came down to three factors. The first was that the fact that Cuomo lost to Tom Cotton convinced a lot of people that without some kind of intervening factor (like the recession), right wing populism would only lose to left wing populism The second was that “young” people kept their beliefs, and Santana won the 55 and under demographic by huge margins in every single state, just like Sanders won 45 and under by huge margins 10 years ago. And the third was that people had stopped trusting the mainstream media in the Democratic party. In 2020, 70% of Democrats trusted the media - by 2028, it was only 30%. In the same time, Republicans went from 30% trusting the media in 2020, to 10% trusting the media in 2028. As a result, in the words of one Vox article, voters “rejected the opinions of those who understand the wider reality of this country, opting instead to believe that what they and their liberal friends wanted will somehow win over conservatives in the upper peninsula and western Pennsylvania.”
The fact that the primary was now essentially over meant that Santana would cruise to victory even in states that she probably would not have won before. This, however, was when the Santana insurgency strategy fully paid off. By associating her campaign with the socialist primary challenger in every district, the voters who went in to vote for Santana defaulted to voting for the person whose name they associated with hers for the congressional primaries. Across the nation, incumbent corporate democrats were unseated, in scenes reminiscent of the 2020 New York congressional primaries.
After winning the primary, Santana turned her attention to the general election. Cotton’s main campaign planks were doing the things he said he would do in his first term, and investigating the “unfair FAIR package,” to determine just how much of it was, in fact, blatantly rigging the elections. Santana, of course, ran on the same positive policy message she had brought with her for the primaries, promising transformative change and a radically fairer and kinder society. Meanwhile, American Party candidate Marco Rubio desperately tried to appear relevant - barely making it to the debates - but was severely undercut by Cottons foreign policy managing to secure up the Republican vote.
Election night came and went, and the result shocked the entire nation. It was expected from polling that Santana would win - what was unexpected was the absolutely insane level of victory Santana achieved. She won with more than 400 electoral votes, and totally smashed the congressional and senatorial elections as well - Democrats achieved massive majorities in both houses, so large in fact that Santanas insurgents represented more votes than the Republican party itself, although not quite outright majorities without the corporate democrats. The future is quite bright indeed for Santana, as the first woman president sets about preparing to transition the country from the insanity of the Cotton presidency to a new order. The reason Santana’s victory was so large was a combination of a) the Unions and progressives going from abstaining like they did in 2024 to full-fledged campaign outlets for Santana b) the recession and Rick Snyder scandal totally undermining Cotton c) the hardcore American party voters (maybe 5% of the total outcome) refusing to put Cotton as their second choice and d) mass engagement and mobilisation raising turnout for Santana in a way that dwarfed even th Obama 08 campaign.

2020.09.04 03:33 iszevthere VENT: Nmom acting like my late Ngrandmother (kinda long)

I feel selfish and whiny even posting about this, but--it matters. It matters a lot, actually.
N/emom and Ndad switched roles swiftly and hardcore after N/emom and I had a screaming match over eight months ago. It was unbearably creepy and only took about an hour, but has been consistent since then. I've gone VLC with Nmom. A few weeks ago though, my washer and dryer broke. Nmom has kindly taken me to the laundromat every week since then and taken many time-consuming steps to resolve the issue. She's gone back to many Emom behaviors, but the N ones are definitely still there.
The biggest one has been time. NAunt, Ndad's sister, does this and I've accepted it. I'll invite her over and she'll show up anywhere from half an hour to three hours later than we originally agreed on, via text message and phone. I used to confront her about it. We figured out a system: since she's gonna be however late, she can call and then text me when she's at the door, and I can finish up/walk back from whatever I'm doing. I know I'm enabling her behavior. I know, I know. But until the pandemic, it was the only way to socialize with her--ooh, now that I'm typing this out, her behavior comes across as -very- different. Anyway now I call her sometimes to say hi. But NGrandma, on Ndad's side, was FAMOUS for being late or early. Famed for being hours late because her time and tasks were more important than yours, and hours early because she would leave meetings and events if she was bored. She would get -very- offended if you did anything but smile about it. It was presented as inevitable.
There have been many other people doing this throughout my life, and I realized wow, I sure do know a lot of self-centered, rude people who think their time is more important than mine and when I confront them, they get upset. A text message saying you're running late will go a long, long way but I get nothing. A text -cancelling- would be -quite- appreciated, even if it was an hour after the original plan or whatever. Just acknowledge it! So, Nmom and her modeling this behavior: she doesn't text. She doesn't call. She's just hours late to help me with whatever, and often, I can't do it myself. She never, ever apologizes, let alone acknowledges it. She just grins and acts delighted to see me, and it's frustrating. She never used to do this! She used to give Ndad and his family a hard time for their constant lateness and rudeness, and now she's doing it herself.
My GC Lil N-Bro is getting married in my parents' backyard this weekend. He had to change the date and venue due to the pandemic, and narrow the guests to ten people. I was surprised to find out I was one of them. Nmom said, "I'll pick you up and drive you home." I said okay. This was months ago. Two weeks ago, I started working with a theater company based in New York and Chicago via Zoom. They think I'm great. I'm terrified of them--this is a crowd that easily drops money on Broadway tickets. I can't afford a forty-dollar ring light. So, severe class differences are present. I misread an email and wrote out an answer that made sense to what I thought I had read, but when the misunderstanding was clarified, I had written a weird answer as to my availability. This weekend, I was supposed to read for a role that is helping a playwright get their -freakin' Master's degree-. It's pressure on her, and I had to waltz in with, "I misread the email! I'm traveling that whole weekend and won't know my Friday availability until Friday itself!" because Nmom has this new and awful habit of being super late and NOT TELLING ME. One of the principal actors is also busy Friday. So, Friday reading got moved to Sunday. Sunday is GC Lil Bro's wedding, I explain in a panic, realizing my misreading of the email and accordingly odd answer. A COMPANY OF BROADWAY-ADJACENT ACTORS AND DIRECTORS MOVED A READING THAT WILL HELP SOMEONE GET THEIR MASTER'S DEGREE TO MONDAY AFTERNOON FOR ME. I'm on-page for three scenes, but they change the plot. They do not have understudies. This feels--I feel so selfish and rude. Once everything was agreed on, I privately freaked out. I'm convinced the company's gonna drop me, and that's going to be sad. The company I worked with as a kid in Seattle banned people when they did things like this, so it must be the same everywhere.
Why would they drop me if things got ostensibly sorted? -Because I don't know who's driving me home or when.- I haven't even told Nfamily about anything I've been doing! Except GC Lil Bro. I'm so worried that he's gonna ask about it, and I'll have to brush it off. And equally important in my theater career, another moment I never thought I would hit ever: I have been accepted to study online, with actors in London. It--like--YOU GUYS, LONDON. The first class? Ten o'clock my time on Monday morning. I calculated the time zones wrong and thought it was Tuesday and that I'd be back in my apartment. Not even close. It's gonna be a nerve-wracking, exhausting day full of high-end theater. Nfamily has no clue. At all. Asking Nmom to drive me home in time for me to go to the ten AM online thing is totally rude and unrealistic. Asking her if I can -stay- with just saying, "It's important and I really need a solid internet connection" is what I'm considering. I could also ask NAunt to drive me home Sunday night, but again, this involves gray-rocking so hard that it borders on lying. "It's uh, an important meeting and I misread the thing, and it can't be rescheduled!" True in both cases.
This sucks. I made two innocent but enormous mistakes, and the consequences are ones I'm sadly and grimly prepared for (getting dropped from the New York/Chicago company for missing a performance and getting dropped from a class in London for missing the first day). Part of me is secretly hoping I can just calmly explain to Nmom "I need to be back Monday, or can I stay at your house in the morning, or ask NAunt?" and it will be fine, and that NAunt will gladly drive me, but--it could go either way.
Thanks for reading.

2020.09.03 00:06 RocketMan_672 My pitch for a possible Frasier revival...

So, there’s a lot of ideas being thrown around that the Frasier revival is going to revolve around Frasier living with his son, Freddie, and, while I can’t confirm that that won’t be the premise of the revival, I can confirm that I wouldn’t really like it if they went down that road.
First off, I am aware that Freddie had some weird patches, like that episode where he was a goth for instance, but I think that he wouldn’t have grown up to be remarkably different from Frasier; Lilith is too formal and domineering of a parent for Freddie to grow up to be someone resembling Martin or a ‘stereotypical millennial’ like people have been throwing around. Having three Frasiers this time around - because remember we’d get Frasier, Freddie and Niles would presumably still be around too - sharing the space isn’t going to make for good comedy, so he’s off the cards, at least as a main character anyway.
Second, I just didn’t like Freddie that much. At all. I found him irritating for reasons I can’t quite put my finger on and I still find all of his episodes quite “skippable”. Not to blow smoke up my own a**, but I think I can do a better job at constructing a character in a single Reddit post than Frasier did with Freddie in 11 seasons.
So, the fact of the matter is we need Martin, but John Mahoney is no longer with us, so there needs to be a ‘new Martin’, not a carbon copy - because I think that would make for extremely cringe-y television - but a character that fills the void that John Mahoney’s passing has left. We can’t use Freddie for reasons stated above, so I propose we use...
Alli!
Who’s Alli? You might ask. Well, you remember Roz had that baby in the original series and named her Alice, well, that’s her now, albeit with a name tweak - that I’ll explain later - and an actual personality this time. However, before I delve into Alli’s story, a little bit of background:
Between the end of the original series and the present, Frasier married and subsequently divorced Charlotte. He also had a radio gig whilst living in Chicago, but, as the world is beginning to choose podcasts over radio more and more, the radio station closed down and Frasier decided to retire rather than try and find another job. Now, after Martin’s death, Frasier has decided to move back to Seattle to be closer to family.
Even though he maintains that it is not the same because it is ‘on the floor below his old apartment’, the series opens just as Frasier has moved back into an apartment completely identical to the one from the original series. Played for comedic effect but with kind of serious undertones, Niles claims that Frasier yearns for ‘the good old days’ again, and his obsession with having everything identical is a manifestation of this desire. Frasier denies that he wants the apartment to be identical, right before insisting that Niles help him move the couch because it is ‘slightly to the left of where it was.”
After settling into his ‘new’ apartment, Frasier finds retirement in Seattle not what he thought it would be. While he does find it familiar and comforting, Frasier feels quite left out and lonely in his retirement to Seattle, since neither Niles, Daphne, Roz or many of the side characters at KACL have retired. Niles and Daphne claim they’re still ‘saving up’ to afford a top tier college for both of their two children, even though it’s becoming clear that their son, David - a slightly aloof 17-year-old who only seems to be interested in soccer and punk rock - is not quite Ivy League material. Roz, on the other hand, refuses to retire until she gets KACL back up on its feet again, even though the now-unpopular radio station has been at death’s door for years. When Frasier questions Niles about why Roz has remained so obsessed over ‘rescuing’ KACL when its demise seems inevitable by now, Niles replies with a cryptic: “Well, what else does she have to obsess over?”
In an effort to reacquaint Frasier with Seattle and properly reconnect with him, Niles convinces Frasier to host an elaborate wine and cheese tasting at his apartment with esteemed guests. The evening turns disastrous when a conversation between Roz and Daphne about their respective lives directly before the party turns gloomy, and they reach for the wine for comfort. This soon results in Roz crying about how much of a failure she is and, after Roz struggles to find a positive quality about David when prompted, Daphne crying about having raised an aimless son. After an offhanded comment by Roz about how David would ‘kick butt’ in a public school - since him and his sister go to a ritzy prep school - while her daughter, Esty, would be ‘eaten alive’ in an attempt to comfort Daphne, she then cries about having raised a poor-spirited daughter.
Meanwhile, David, who was forbidden from going to a music festival and instead told to watch his sister while Frasier and Niles hosted their tasting and Roz and Daphne had a girl’s night, sneaks out anyway. In case it is not already obvious, Esty was not only named after Hester Crane, but mirrors Niles and Frasier in her behaviour, so, while David sneaks out, Esty is shown miming a conductor while listening to classical music through her headphones. Before he leaves, David gives her a brief look of bewilderment.
At the music festival, David is surprised when a punk rock band on the experimental side enters the stage with Alice as their lead guitarist, except she’s now introduced as Alli. While they are a semi-talented band, their style gets them booed offstage, as the festival is filled mainly with mainstream and cover punk rock bands. Afterwards, David meets Alli backstage, where it is quickly made clear that she has had little to do with her mother or the Cranes for some time. The rest of Alli’s band appears and confronts about the extremely negative reception that they just received. Here, it is revealed that Alli’s stubbornness to change - which is meant to resemble Martin’s - has been the main factor in the band not changing their style even if they are continually booed offstage. The rest of the band has agreed that they cannot go on like this and announce they are changing with or without Alli’s permission and she instantly threatens to leave the band if they go ahead with it. The scene immediately cuts to the band members eagerly speeding away in their van without Alli.
David, though air-headed at times, is big-hearted and assures Alli that he can help her since she is now stranded in Seattle without anywhere to go. After she recoils at the idea of David taking her to his parents for help, he remembers the wine and cheese party taking place at Frasier’s apartment and tricks Alli into thinking that the party is just ‘a place where a friend of his lives that she can go’ - as Alli was too young in the original series to properly remember the famous apartment.
At the wine and cheese tasting, the gathering has been completely ruined by Daphne and Roz’s unruliness, with the latter having taken to crying over the laps of random party guests and the former having taken to drunkenly seeking validation from them that she has been a good mother to her children.
Frasier and Niles are beyond mortified at the events unfolding around them, although Frasier admits to Niles in the kitchen that the whole affair is reminding him of the dinner parties in the original series and while he is overcome with embarrassment, he admits that he thinks he is beginning to feel whole and truly at home in Seattle again. Niles, as they walk out of the kitchen, adds on to Frasier’s statement that, while he is horrified now, he doesn’t see things getting any worse than this.
On cue, the door swings open and there stand David and Alli, dressed in their best festival gear. Alli instantly recognises the Cranes and her mother and both parties are shocked at the sight of the other. Alli, while she greets her, is extremely distant and brisk with her mother, addressing her simply as “Roz” instead of her mom.
David explains himself and Alli to his parents, stating beforehand that he “found Alli while taking a walk”, despite his obvious change of appearance since Niles and Daphne left their home earlier. Alli just wants to leave, preferring to ‘couch-surf and hitchhike her way to somewhere’ than ever face the prospect of having to live with her mother again, which seems like the only solution before her.
Roz pulls Frasier away and proposes an offer to him: In exchange for reviving Frasier’s show on KACL and giving him a job, he gives Alli a place to stay. At first, while he instantly realises having a radio gig again would mean true fulfilment, Frasier refuses, citing that Alli will be “just like his dad living with him again”. Frasier suddenly pauses when he realises what he has just said and, after a brief moment of silence, Roz admits to Frasier that Niles told her about his behaviour when he was moving into the ‘new’ apartment - again, an exact replica of the one from the original series - and his desire to have everything the way it used to be. Roz then asks Frasier if he can make this one last thing just how it used to be. Frasier eventually relents, but on one condition.
The final scene of the episode before the credits play resembles the last scene of the original series, except the camera pans across Frasier’s booth in the opposite direction, opting to show the window behind him first, which shows Niles, Daphne, Alli, David, Esty and others watching him through the window. As Frasier signs off, thanking the station personally for the second chance, the window beside him is shown, showing Roz behind the producer’s desk. Alli, meanwhile, has kind of taken up a Kirby kind of role at the station - like an assistant to Frasier and Roz among others - even though making her resemble Kirby is the last thing I want to do, because Kirby sucked lol.
A staff member enters Roz’s side of booth immediately after the end of show and announces that it was the highest-rating segment on KACL in over a decade and everyone appears ecstatic. While it appears as a happy ending, severe tension between Roz and Alli still exists, David’s aloofness still concerns his parents and the question of who will replace Roz as station manager looms over KACL.
The end credits show David, Niles and Daphne arriving home the night Alli arrived in Seattle. Niles, having realised that David snuck out to go to the music festival, chews him out as he directs him upstairs. Daphne follows, but notices Esty still conducting in time with the music coming out of her headphones in the living room and gives her the exact same look of bewilderment that David gave her earlier before heading upstairs. Esty has not noticed her, nor her father or brother, come in.
And that’s it...
Just to clarify a few things and to tie up some loose ends: On the topic of why Alli and Roz are estranged, it’s slowly revealed that Alli had a music teacher in high school that she was extremely close to and whom she eventually saw as father figure; it was this teacher, in fact, that introduced Alli to the style of music that she now simply cannot leave behind. This teacher was also the first person that Alli came out to.
That’s right, motherf**kers, Alli is the show’s first starring character who identifies as openly gay. I think that it’s a sin that a show with a cast and crew that’s included so many LGBT people never did it in the original series, so I’m out to fix it. On a semi-related note, on the topic of Alli’s name change, I came to the conclusion that Alli simply has a more androgynous tone that the obviously feminine Alice. While Alli is by no means non-binary, the character is not afraid to turn away from a lot of stereotypically feminine interests and most definitely does not behave, as old white people would put it, ‘like a lady’. Also, again, while she is not non-binary, Alli’s dress sense and the way she presents herself at times is not strictly feminine or masculine. Anywho, I just can’t see a name like Alice fitting the character anymore and, even though Alli is also a feminine name, I do think it comes across as a bit of a halfway point between Al and Alice and therefore the name is not as staunchly feminine as Alice. The fact that Alli was born as Alice is not retconned either, it is explicitly stated that she made the decision that she would prefer to go by Alli some time ago but before that she was still Alice.
Anyway, back to Alli and Roz’s relationship and how it got so bad, Roz eventually ‘decided’ that she was in love with Alli’s beloved teacher, according to Alli, and began to pursue him. After things ended extremely awkwardly between the two, the teacher abruptly told Alli that he could not teach her anymore and left Seattle. Alli struggled to cope with losing what almost felt like a second father and, as a result, her and Roz’s relationship deteriorated significantly. After high school, Alli moved closer to her mother’s extended family in Wisconsin for college and has had little to do with her mother ever since.
Alli is not a carbon copy of Martin, but her personality at times clashes with Frasier’s just as his did. She is not overly materialistic nor does she put much thought into what others think of her and, as I mentioned above, Alli can be quite stubborn and, while she is not as traditional as Martin was, unwavering on matters that she holds close to her heart. For example, in one theoretical revival episode, Martin’s old chair ends up in Frasier’s possession again. After she sees that David - who was extremely close with Martin - is visibly upset by Frasier’s announcement that he is simply throwing the chair away, Alli passionately argues that Frasier simply cannot do that.
Also in contrast to Frasier’s staunch moral compass - take “Oh my god, I’m dating Lana/Lorna Linley for completely self-serving reasons and I feel the need to tell her, blah, blah, blah…” for example, Alli at times has little moral compass. For example, in a later episode in the theoretical revival, Alli receives news that her former bandmates were arrested for drug possession not long after she was kicked out of and the band’s dog, Billie, a Yorkshire Terrier, needs a guardian. She is adamant that the dog is not her responsibility and she owes none of her former band mates anything, Frasier, however, after misinterpreting a conversation between Alli and a lawyer, thinks Billie is a very small reptile and convinces her that taking him in is ‘the right thing to do’. He fails to realise that this means an extremely lively dog will be living with him again until it’s too late.
HOWEVER, and this is a big HOWEVER, Roz’s parenting that we saw in the original series, that included supplying Alice with classical music and enlisting Niles’ help to get her into a very good preschoo has resulted in Alli’s intelligence actually being comparable with that of Frasier and Niles’. However, Alli shows little interest in any of the pastimes that Niles and Frasier would be interested in and instead partakes mainly in ‘common man’ hobbies and interests, such as playing an acoustic/electric guitar, participating in social media, watching reality television and engaging in many other forms of mainstream pop culture. Alli’s mannerisms also mean that she would not be easily accepted by the circles that Niles and Frasier associate with. For example, in one theoretical episode, Niles joins an intellectual debating team and Alli is revealed to have a savant-like knowledge and understanding of many historical topics. However, her proclamation of: “YA TAKE A SWING AT THE QUEEN, YA BEST NOT MISS!” after delivering an excellent rebuttal at the end of the episode indicates that she is still far from being fully accepted by the snobbish society.
So, that’s about it, I have either elements that I’ve left out, so if you have a “what do you think _______ is doing in the revival?” feel free to bother me with it. Other than that, enjoy my completely theoretical and fanatical take on what the Frasier revival should entail... Good day and good mental health... or whatever lol

2020.09.02 19:40 nowimalamp Insights into Routing your own Tour (breaking down a bad routing example, explaining markets & the radius clause, and a How To Guide for interacting with the promoter)

Routing Your Tour

Google maps is your best friend when routing a tour. Route your shows so that you don’t have to drive more than 8 hours at a time, preferably 4 hours (with a 2-hour grace period) if its the same day as a show. Your region will affect this — The NorthEast has markets less than an hour apart, while the SouthEast has market at least 3 or 4 hours apart. The MidWest has even further markets, with some drives hitting 6 or 7 hours. Time zones will also affect your DOS (Day Of Show) arrival, so keep them in mind when driving East or West. In some cases, the load in times may be absurdly early — For example a 3pm Soundcheck for an 11 pm show, which will affect your routing. Lastly, always assume that there is going to be traffic, so give yourself a generous grace period when driving through any major city.
“When sending out holds to promoters, group them together by region as to avoid backtracking. Sometimes its too early to have an idea of your competition, but do your best to avoid markets that would be big competition unless you can leverage your way into that competition. For example, I wouldn’t book a show in Atlanta during the weekend of Sweetwater’s 420 Festival unless you are able to secure an Official After Party or Pre-Party show.” (Erwin Schemankewitz)

Lets breakdown an example of some Bad Routing

This is a real tour route that I saw a musical contemporary of mine post on their social media. Without lambasting anyone, I would like to break down the good and bad qualities of this route.
Non-hypothetical Tour Routing - Good vs Bad?
First of all, this routing is not all bad. If you were touring in a bus or had a dedicated driver, this route makes a lot of sense. All of these 5+ hour drives can be done at night while the artist is asleep in the bus. But if you are driving a van (which you definitely are if you are reading this), this cramped route will leave you exhausted by the end.
My biggest complaint is that with only a single day-off sandwiched inside 16 gigs, the feasibility of this route is ambitious. Adding driving times into the mix, and it becomes absurd. If the cities were closer together, or you played multiple nights in the same city, that would be different. But there is little breathing room in this tour to break the monotony of driving, loading in, performing, and loading out (which can drive you insane after a while). A more reasonable tour schedule would grant the artist 2 days-off for every 5 shows on (typically on the Sunday & Monday since its hard to book shows on those days anyway). So a 16-show route like this would ideally have 3 or 4 days-off sprinkled in between, or to help connect a long drive.
Other than days-off, this route fails to account for travel delays in a few major areas: Big Cities (+ 1 hour), Border crossings (+ 1 hour), and Traffic. These 3 hours drives turn into 4, and the 5 hour drives turn into 7. Even if everything went 100% according to plan, and you are the most timely band in the world, there is so much uncertainty on the road that this routing would make me anxious about arriving at our venues on-time. Not to mention that the long drives would assuredly take a toll on the quality of the performances, night after night.

How to Classify Markets:

In the Live Concert & Touring industry, markets (cities) are classified into three sizes: Tertiary Markets (smallest), Secondary Markets (middle), and Primary Markets (largest).

Tertiary Markets

Tertiary Market: the smallest of the three classification of market size. This is a small city or town, somewhere with a population of less than 50,000 people. Doing well in these markets can be attributed to a limited nightlife and music scene. Or its the hometown of one of your band members and you pack the club out with your local friends. These markets typically do not have theaters, but small clubs or large bars. This market sells 50–1,000 tickets.
Tybee Island, GA

Secondary Markets

Secondary Markets: The middle classification of market size. The majority of your touring will be spent in Secondary markets. These are small — large cities with populations between 50k and 1 million. These markets have large theaters, developed arts communities, and an active nightlife. This market sells 200–5,000 tickets.
Asheville, NC

Primary Markets

Primary Markets: These are really big cities: LA, Atlanta, Dallas, New York City, Toronto, Seattle, Nashville, Boston, Chicago, etc. Success in Primary markets is crucial to a booking agent because these markets are the most scalable. An artist can grow from 500 tickets sold to 50,000 in the same city. Routing a tour through Primary markets is easier and more lucrative for all parties involved.
Atlanta, GA

How to Interact with the Promoter

How often do you follow up with a Promoter if they don’t respond to your email?

“For a cold lead, You can start reaching out to promoters as early as 6 months in advance of the show or hold requested. When sending cold emails, you should email a ton of venues all at once, like throwing darts at a dartboard. Most will be misses, but some will stick. And you can lock those in to build your route. Focus on regional batches. For Example, ask for holds during a 2 week period in Northern California/West Coast, and then the following 2 week period in Southern California/SouthWest.”
“After about a month of tricking emails and correspondence, you can send you follow ups to all the cold leads who did not respond (which will be most of them). Make sure before you follow up that you check the event calendars for these venues. Do your due diligence to make sure that date is publicly available on their end. Once you are in the 2-month time frame, you can begin sending follow ups once a week until a route is locked in.”
“90% of the time, promoters are appreciative that the booking agent is staying on top of the show with weekly follow up. They may have read you initial email, made a mental note of the show, but forgotten to write back. You never know if your emails are going into a spam folder or how busy the promoters are. Most likely, you will receive curt emails like “not available”, “no”, or “OK”, from promoters when trying to book a show. These people are very busy! But for the most part, the promoter will not be annoyed with follow ups about a show, as long as the show is publicly available, because that’s how the business works.” (Erwin Schemankewitz, Ever Upward Entertainment)

Keep your emails short and sweet

When emailing a promoter or venue, keep your emails short and sweet: Include pertinent information only!
Hypothetical email looking to secure a Hold from a Promoter
They don’t need your bio, or a persuasive argument about why your band should receive priority on the show. Do not send any attachments on the email. Instead, format the body of the email with hyperlinks, such as to the bands website, social media, or a spreadsheet of their history in that market. Lastly, do not inflate you numbers! If you can only draw 50 people, that’s fine. There is room for you in the market to grow and promoters understand this. The deal structure will reflect those numbers, of course. But at the end of the day, the market decides. And if you tell the promoter you can bring 200 people and sell 40 tickets… you won’t be invited back.

Pay Attention to the Radius Clause

A Radius Clause is a time frame or geographic restriction that prevents an artist from playing a competing show. Standard radius Clause is 60 Days and 60 Miles and can be found in the performance Contract. It gives the promoter a form of territorial exclusivity over the performance. If get caught breaking a radius clause, that is legal justification for the promoter to remove you from the show. Radius Clauses are almost always found in contracts for soft-ticket events, so an event where you are not the main attraction such as a music festival. Make sure you or your manager is reviewing every performance contracts just in case. Failing to uphold your Radius Clause looks really bad on the artist and the management.

The Deal is The Deal

You can assume that the venue is lowballing on their first offer, but generally there is very little room for negotiation on a Performance Contract. Especially in the areas of hospitality, the venue will offer what they are capable of up front. In the case of a larger food buyout or a paid-for hotel room, this isn’t something that can be leveraged against the promoter. If the venue has a runner, they will be upfront about it. If the venue has a loft for the band to sleep in, they will be upfront about it.
For negotiating the Artist’s Performance Fee, the market will decide. If you can sell 50 tickets vs 500, your payment will accurately reflect that. Some venues have successful weekday show series, like a Monday Funk Night that will generate more revenue than normal. However you should consider Sunday through Tuesday to be off days or bad deals. For example, a door deal at a bar in an unfamiliar market might not even be worth the trip out there, unless it routes you to a better market later in the week.

Consider the Underplay

It is easy to get caught up in the numbers game. And that’s because the most important component of social marketing is non-quantifiable. You can’t turn it into numbers. You can’t measure it, you can only measure the results. That thing, is HYPE. An Underplay, is a show that is guaranteed to sell-out because the venue capacity is so much smaller than the expected attendance.
While this strategy might not work for you financially, a close-to-home and stripped down version of your set can be great for building a community.

Don’t take anything personally

Whatever happens, and only as long as you have done your due diligence, problems with routing and getting shows probably has nothing to do with you. The Music Business is a whirlwind of chaos, email threads, lost communication, and alcoholism. Sometimes things that seemed perfect on paper don’t work out. Sometimes responsible people make mistakes. Sometimes the show gets double booked, or the headliner gets stuck in traffic. Bands are a business, and business should never be taken personally. You just have to roll with the punches.

2020.09.02 17:22 hrdooku Hugo Weaving talks The Matrix 4 (revealing more info about his absence).

https://www.comingsoon.net/movies/news/1147360-exclusive-hugo-weaving-talks-about-his-involvement-with-the-matrix-4
“Lana Wachowski had rung me at the beginning of last year,” Weaving explained. “We’ve worked together five times, the Wachowski’s and I on three Matrix films, V for Vendetta and Cloud Atlas. I’ve hung out with them all over the world for many, many years. So, yes, Lana was very keen for me to be involved in The Matrix. There was a reading with Keanu, Carrie and myself and a few others from the old family.”
Weaving had reservations about returning for another Matrix film and had slightly mixed reactions when reading the script.
“I loved a lot of it and wasn’t sure about other bits,” he said. “Ultimately, we talked about it and when the offer came through to do it for Warner’s I said yes the next day and I talked to Lana.”
At the time, Weaving was scheduled to work at the National Theatre in London from November to April. Lana wanted Weaving to film his scenes from February until May, but the scheduling would have clashed with his prior engagement.
“I thought we could have done my scenes in May, June and July; and we talked about money and we talked about — they were negotiating,” Weaving said. “And we were all pretty much sorted and agreed on dates and it was all fine, but then Lana decided she didn’t think it was going to work. So, she pulled the plug on the negotiations. That’s where it ended up. She basically didn’t feel that my commitment to the National Theatre was going to fit in with the dates that she had in mind for me.”
Considering Weaving was set to film for nearly four months, one wonders just how integral to the plot Smith was. And while the actor couldn’t reveal any details regarding the plot of the new film, he did voice his regrets about not returning for another go as Smith.
“It was a shame in one way that I couldn’t be with them all in Berlin, but that was her call,” he said. “So, that was it really. I know they then started shooting in San Francisco and they were going to shoot in Chicago and they ended up starting in Berlin but it was shut down. But they restarted again. I don’t know how they’re going, but, yeah, it would be lovely to be over there to hang out with them all. I’m very fond of Keanu and Carrie. I haven’t seen them for a while. But I look forward to seeing it.”

2020.09.02 07:45 qwertycoder Boseman, Black Panthers and Rainbows at the angle of 42, a synchromystic map.

We are all sad to hear about the death of Black Panther King Chadwick Boseman. He was a fine actor and played some of the most pivotal roles in his short span of making movies. And he was making some of these movies deep into stage three cancer all while keeping it a secret and smashing it in all of his roles.
Underneath everything there is a hidden saga being told. A strange world where everything is connected by some sort of energy that ebs and flows reality around in particular patterns.
I notice things and point things out that I find to be strange. Many people are quick to say that the things I bring up are “the work of the Illuminati” but I feel that it is no man or group that is running this algorithm of life and death, creation and destruction.
Ill start at the top of my research and just lay out the peculiar findings that I KNEW in my gut would be found. But then again everything is just coincidence......
The strangest thing happened when I looked up his birthday. I checked wikipedia and plugged in the date of birth till death day and saw 43 years.
Then I go to IMDB and also noticed many of the news outlets reporting “dies at 42” and “dies at 43” in about a half and half distribution.
Then almost as Im watching the edits begin and everything that once had his birthday at 11-29-1977 was now changed to 1978
This is not the first time this has happened and especially with someone with such a significant series of date counts attached to their birth and death days.
Born on the 333 day of the year and he lived 42y 8m 4w 2d But this is obfuscated with the alteration of his birthdate.
I stated that this wasn't the first time this happened as it happened with Joan Lee the wife of Stan Lee one of the co-creators of The Black Panther comic book series.

https://www.reddit.com/coincidence/comments/6mj1m9/joan_lee_birth_911_is_77y7m7d_from_911_until_he

Joans birthday 2-5-24 until 9-11-2001 is 77years 7months and 7 days inclusive! Joan died on 7-6-17 which is 5777 days after 9-11-2001!
7-7-17 was the day that Spider-man: Homecoming was released in theaters The day after Joan Lee began her journey HOME.
This is also strange because of the fact that on Trumps Inauguration 2016 he was 70y 7m 7d old. And he met with Putin the day after Joan lees death on 7-7-17 when Putin was entering his 777th month of life
Also note Trumps convergence with Abraham Lincoln, in addition to using Lincolns Bible to be sworn in on the inauguration day mentioned.
Trump’s first full day of life was 770 months, 777 weeks and 770 days after Lincoln was assassinated.

Trump’s first full day in office was 70 years, 777 months, 777 weeks and 777 days from the day Lincoln died. This day was on Trump’s 70th year, 7th month and 7th day of life.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nTIw-djmQcY
But if you look now you will see a completely different birth-date
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joan_Boocock_Lee
https://www.imdb.com/name/nm1643074/
Here is a screenshot taken the day of Joan lees Death and one cannot ignore the blatent spiderman SYCHRONY Ad.
https://imgur.com/3ECPa1f
I took this screenshot NOT because of the date but because of the SYNCHRONY ad. But doing so gave me a record of the change happening the very next day when it was altered.

We got a little of topic bringing up Joan lee, Trump, Lincoln But it is also the finest example of a tight sync chain connecting multiple folks and also an example of Revisionist history when the dates are changes as we saw with Chadwick Boseman.
Chadwick Boseman was the King of Wakanda and builder of bridges and not barriers.
Black Panther was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby who debuted in the July 1966 edition of The Fantastic Four #52.
Jack Kirby was born 8-28-1917 and the day Chadwick Boseman died would have been Jack Kirby(black Panthers co-creator) 103rd birthday
Boseman played a collection of Real Historic Black figures that were firsts in their fields.
But lets go back to his first listed role.
https://www.slashfilm.com/all-my-children-fired-chadwick-boseman/
Chadwick plays Reggie in the soap opera All My Children and his role was taken over by Micheal B Jordan who would later portray his enemy in the Blockbuster hit Black Panther
The alchemy there is strong. 1 person splitting into 2 versions and they are Nemesis.
Killmonger was a Black Power “destruction of the White Colonists kind of person. “He became a subversive, with dreams of ridding Wakanda of what he termed "white colonialist" cultural influences and return it entirely to its ancient ways.”
Black Power and the Raised fist are symbols of the Black Panther Party symbology. There is a strong current in the Zietgiest right now that is pushing for the 2nd American Civil war.
Chadwicks first major feature film (42) had him play Jackie Robinson the FIRST Black man to join the MLB.
Robinson broke the baseball color line when he started at first base for the Brooklyn Dodgers on April 15, 1947.[2] When the Dodgers signed Robinson, they heralded the end of racial segregation in professional baseball that had relegated black players to the Negro leagues since the 1880s
Robinson heralded in the Segregation of the MLB. On 4-15-1947
Jack Roosevelt Robinson was born on January 31, 1919, into a family of sharecroppers in Cairo, Georgia. Note: CAIRO
The city was named after Cairo, the capital of Egypt. Why? Hmm.
So Boseman dieing at 42 and playing in the film 42 is not enough to warrant our attention but the icing on the cake is the effect of the CORONAVIRUS on the MLB.

The teams took the field in their No. 42 jerseys but walked off after a 42-second moment of silence.
https://www.thescore.com/mlb/news/2010854
MLB BLM
The on-field celebrations, including the league-wide wearing of number 42, instead took place on Friday, August 28, commemorating the 75th anniversary of the date Robinson met with Branch Rickey to discuss joining the Dodgers as well the 57th anniversary of the March on Washington.
75th and 57th anniversaries of 2 iconic events for the lives of black Americans.
https://www.espn.com/mlb/recap?gameId=401226183 There was a moment of silence before the game for Chadwick Boseman, the actor who played Jackie Robinson in the movie "42." Boseman died from colon cancer Friday, the day Major League Baseball marked its annual Jackie Robinson Day.
This is all made more shocking since it was during the Dodgers game on Jackie Robinson day that the announcement of Chadwicks death was made via Twitter.

Chadwick then went on too play the role of the 'Father of Soul” James Brown, in the film Get on Up
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=upeKFdDWk4I
James brown had a ritual that he would perform on stage where he got down on his knees and a cape was placed upon his shoulders to give him the strength to “Get on Up”

https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-news/funks-founding-father-james-brown-1933-2006-69720/
Boseman starred along side Nelsan Ellis who played Bobby Byrd
In 1952 Bobby Byrd formed and sang with a gospel group called the Gospel Starlighters. During a friendly baseball match at a juvenile prison, he met a young James Brown who was serving time there on robbery charges. Byrd befriended him and arranged for Byrd's family to oversee Brown's parole.[3] This began a personal and professional association that lasted until 1973.

https://www.imdb.com/name/nm1734700/
Nelsan Ellis also stared in the 2008 film The Express, along with Boseman. The film being about the first African American winner of the Heisman Trophy another First on the list of Firsts.
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0469903/?ref_=nm_flmg_act_27
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Butler
I also took note of Nelsan Ellis playing Martin Luther KING Jr in the film “The Butler”
Which was the final film of Laura Ziskin who died of breast cancer 6-12-2011 (Da 5 bloods releases on the 13th anniversary of Laura's death to Cancer.)
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laura_Ziskin
In the late 1960s, after civil rights activist Martin Luther King, Jr.'s assassination, Louis tells his family that he has joined the Black Panthers. Cecil orders Louis and his girlfriend to leave his house. Louis is arrested again. Cecil becomes aware of President Richard Nixon's plans to suppress the Black Panthers.
Remember that Boseman died on the 75th anniversary of Jackie Robinson day and the 57th Anniversary of MLKs I have a dream speech in the National Mall/Lincoln memorial.
The reason Nelsan Ellis stands out to me is he was connected with Joan Lees death as her death was 7-6 and his was 7-8 and they were mirrors of one another. 93/39 black/white male/female. The mirroring element is highly important. But in seeing Boseman and Ellis together in 2 films made seeing Ellis's birth-date that much more potent.
Nelsan Eliis Born 11-30-1977 Chadwick Boseman Born 11-29-1977
Only 1 day separates the birth of these two men.

We are 3 episodes into the new HBO TV show about Jim Crow era racism in a Lovecraftian horror show called Lovecraft Country which debuted on 8-16-2020 12 day before Jackie Robinson day and Bosemans Death.
The first episode opens with a Dream Sequence.
“The opening monologue we hear in the first sequence of “Sundown” is a quote from the 1950 biopic The Jackie Robinson Story, a rosy recounting of the first officially acknowledged Black baseball player to join the Major Leagues. “This is the story of a boy and his dream,” the narrator recounts as our hero, Atticus, a.k.a. Tic, literally dreams of fighting a war, first against enemies in the trenches, and then against giant UFOs and flying Cthulhus. “But more than that, it is the story of an American boy and dream that is truly American.”

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Jackie_Robinson_Story
A Biopic where Jackie Robinson plays himself.
Note The American Dream and I have a dream, coated with some revisionist history Lovecraft lore that Lovecraft would hate as he was a racist.( he had a cat named “NI##ER)

Da 5 Bloods is Bosemans most recent release who he plays alongside/with Johnathon Majors the man who had the dream about Jackie Robinson destroying the nightmare starspawn creature in the opening scene of Lovecraft Country.
https://www.imdb.com/name/nm3718007/?ref_=tt_cl_t1
In LCC Majors is a Korean War vet and in Da 5 Bloods he is involved in the Vietnam War.
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt9777644/?ref_=nm_flmg_act_3
As he rages to himself, Paul has a vision of Norman who reminds him that he was the one who had killed him, having shot him by accident during the firefight, and that he should let go of his guilt. Desroche's men find Paul and kill him. At the temple, Desroche and the gunmen arrive. After confronting the Frenchman, now wearing Paul's MAGA hat, Otis, Melvin and Vinh start shooting, killing all of Desroche's men. Desroche wounds Otis and tries to finish him off with a hand grenade, but Melvin sacrifices himself by leaping on top of it. Desroche prepares to execute Otis, but David shoots and kills him with Otis's gun. Vinh helps the surviving Bloods share out the gold. Melvin's widow receives his share, and Eddie's goes to a Black Lives Matter organization. Hedy and Simon donate their shares to LAMB in Seppo's name. Norman's remains are brought home to his family by the military. David reads a letter from Paul, who tells him that he will always love him. Otis visits Tiên and bonds with his daughter for the first time.

Well that's a surprise. The Vietnam film flashes forward too today and has both a MAGA hat AND BLM



Kobe and Boseman.......

I made a similar post about the Life and death and synchromystic web of Kobe earlier this year and we are now seeing an interesting mirror in Bosemans death.

The most obvious correlation is the mirroring of the 2 mens numbers. 42 and 24 and ill point out that Kobe Bryants 42nd birthday would have taken place 4 days before Chadwick's death.

Chadwick had posted the video to launch Operation 42, a scheme that donated $4.2million worth of PPE to hospital that looked after African American communities most affected by coronavirus.
The actor spoke to the camera about the cause clad in a purple baseball cap wearing the mark of the charity and a full beard.

A mystical object with many similarities to the Serpent Crown – the "Cobra Crown" – is shown to have existed during the Hyborian Age that followed the Great Cataclysm.[4] A follower of Set called Thoth-Amon allies himself with some surviving Serpent Men and briefly wields this second Crown. Another receptacle of Set's vast power, the Cobra Crown also enables its wearer to control the minds of others. However, it appears that it was much inferior to the Serpent Crown as its abilities eventually burn out and it is apparently destroyed during the course of a conflict between Thoth-Amon and Conan the Barbarian

TLDR
https://www.cosmopolitan.com/entertainment/movies/amp32871563/chadwick-boseman-age-da-5-bloods/
First the Date of birth being altered on all sources was the first red flag.
Chadwick boseman died on the would be 103rd birthday of the cocreator of Black Panther Jack Kirby on the same day as the 57th March on Washington where MLK performed his I have a Dream speech and also the day of the postponed Jackie Robinson day where Boseman Played Jackie and wore the 42.
He played alongside Nelsan Ellis in 2 films Nelsan died 7-8-17 a couple days after Joan Lee whos birthday was also altered and scrubbed off the internet to hide the truth apparent within the facts. Birth till 9-11 was 77y 7m 7 d from 9-11 till death was 5777 days ending up in the middle of Hebrew year 5777 and on dieng on the release date of spider-man homecoming.
This whole thing is about Black white and the Rainbow we are all in, but the light just has to shine at the right angle (42) for us to have 2020 vision, but most likely hindsight will be 2020 and years later all of this will make sense.

You may have seen my previous writings on such recent events and that might give you better perspective on the whole. Im not the guy saying these are the biblical endtimes, or the guy saying this is all the work of the illuminati.
Im the guy saying we don't have any clue to what consciousness and reality actually is. Im the guy that believes the universe is the great teacher. EVERYTHING humans know and every idea that has arisen has arisen out of nature. Every animal is a teacher, every process in physics is a teacher, every element of creation by man and god is a teaching tool. We are trying to learn what we are. The universe is a troll but in the way a ZEN master riddles his students with KOANS that ostensibly have no true meaning. But it is the process of play and entertaining ideas and convincing ourselves that every truth could be false and every fallacy could be true.
I don't have the answers, I just see what is there to be seen and I think about what is seen and relay my thoughts and the things I see. You may have to read through this a couple times to understand the crux of each individual link I mention but if you come at this with an open mind you may have an easier time and learn something.
R.I.P Chadwick, Kobe,Martin,Malcolm,James,Thurgood, T'challa and every other black icon in history to bring us to where we are today. We are at the start of the rainbow bridge and we can journey up through all the colors to get to the Crown, for we are all kings and queens heroes and villains on this world stage. PLAY your part!

2020.09.02 07:42 qwertycoder Black Panther, Mamba,42, and the rainbow bridge, a synchromystic map

We are all sad to hear about the death of Black Panther King Chadwick Boseman. He was a fine actor and played some of the most pivotal roles in his short span of making movies. And he was making some of these movies deep into stage three cancer all while keeping it a secret and smashing it in all of his roles.
Underneath everything there is a hidden saga being told. A strange world where everything is connected by some sort of energy that ebs and flows reality around in particular patterns.
I notice things and point things out that I find to be strange. Many people are quick to say that the things I bring up are “the work of the Illuminati” but I feel that it is no man or group that is running this algorithm of life and death, creation and destruction.
Ill start at the top of my research and just lay out the peculiar findings that I KNEW in my gut would be found. But then again everything is just coincidence......
The strangest thing happened when I looked up his birthday. I checked wikipedia and plugged in the date of birth till death day and saw 43 years.
Then I go to IMDB and also noticed many of the news outlets reporting “dies at 42” and “dies at 43” in about a half and half distribution.
Then almost as Im watching the edits begin and everything that once had his birthday at 11-29-1977 was now changed to 1978
This is not the first time this has happened and especially with someone with such a significant series of date counts attached to their birth and death days.
Born on the 333 day of the year and he lived 42y 8m 4w 2d But this is obfuscated with the alteration of his birthdate.
I stated that this wasn't the first time this happened as it happened with Joan Lee the wife of Stan Lee one of the co-creators of The Black Panther comic book series.

https://www.reddit.com/coincidence/comments/6mj1m9/joan_lee_birth_911_is_77y7m7d_from_911_until_he

Joans birthday 2-5-24 until 9-11-2001 is 77years 7months and 7 days inclusive! Joan died on 7-6-17 which is 5777 days after 9-11-2001!
7-7-17 was the day that Spider-man: Homecoming was released in theaters The day after Joan Lee began her journey HOME.
This is also strange because of the fact that on Trumps Inauguration 2016 he was 70y 7m 7d old. And he met with Putin the day after Joan lees death on 7-7-17 when Putin was entering his 777th month of life
Also note Trumps convergence with Abraham Lincoln, in addition to using Lincolns Bible to be sworn in on the inauguration day mentioned.
Trump’s first full day of life was 770 months, 777 weeks and 770 days after Lincoln was assassinated.

Trump’s first full day in office was 70 years, 777 months, 777 weeks and 777 days from the day Lincoln died. This day was on Trump’s 70th year, 7th month and 7th day of life.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nTIw-djmQcY
But if you look now you will see a completely different birth-date
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joan_Boocock_Lee
https://www.imdb.com/name/nm1643074/
Here is a screenshot taken the day of Joan lees Death and one cannot ignore the blatent spiderman SYCHRONY Ad.
https://imgur.com/3ECPa1f
I took this screenshot NOT because of the date but because of the SYNCHRONY ad. But doing so gave me a record of the change happening the very next day when it was altered.

We got a little of topic bringing up Joan lee, Trump, Lincoln But it is also the finest example of a tight sync chain connecting multiple folks and also an example of Revisionist history when the dates are changes as we saw with Chadwick Boseman.
Chadwick Boseman was the King of Wakanda and builder of bridges and not barriers.
Black Panther was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby who debuted in the July 1966 edition of The Fantastic Four #52.
Jack Kirby was born 8-28-1917 and the day Chadwick Boseman died would have been Jack Kirby(black Panthers co-creator) 103rd birthday
Boseman played a collection of Real Historic Black figures that were firsts in their fields.
But lets go back to his first listed role.
https://www.slashfilm.com/all-my-children-fired-chadwick-boseman/
Chadwick plays Reggie in the soap opera All My Children and his role was taken over by Micheal B Jordan who would later portray his enemy in the Blockbuster hit Black Panther
The alchemy there is strong. 1 person splitting into 2 versions and they are Nemesis.
Killmonger was a Black Power “destruction of the White Colonists kind of person. “He became a subversive, with dreams of ridding Wakanda of what he termed "white colonialist" cultural influences and return it entirely to its ancient ways.”
Black Power and the Raised fist are symbols of the Black Panther Party symbology. There is a strong current in the Zietgiest right now that is pushing for the 2nd American Civil war.
Chadwicks first major feature film (42) had him play Jackie Robinson the FIRST Black man to join the MLB.
Robinson broke the baseball color line when he started at first base for the Brooklyn Dodgers on April 15, 1947.[2] When the Dodgers signed Robinson, they heralded the end of racial segregation in professional baseball that had relegated black players to the Negro leagues since the 1880s
Robinson heralded in the Segregation of the MLB. On 4-15-1947
Jack Roosevelt Robinson was born on January 31, 1919, into a family of sharecroppers in Cairo, Georgia. Note: CAIRO
The city was named after Cairo, the capital of Egypt. Why? Hmm.
So Boseman dieing at 42 and playing in the film 42 is not enough to warrant our attention but the icing on the cake is the effect of the CORONAVIRUS on the MLB.

The teams took the field in their No. 42 jerseys but walked off after a 42-second moment of silence.
https://www.thescore.com/mlb/news/2010854
MLB BLM
The on-field celebrations, including the league-wide wearing of number 42, instead took place on Friday, August 28, commemorating the 75th anniversary of the date Robinson met with Branch Rickey to discuss joining the Dodgers as well the 57th anniversary of the March on Washington.
75th and 57th anniversaries of 2 iconic events for the lives of black Americans.
https://www.espn.com/mlb/recap?gameId=401226183 There was a moment of silence before the game for Chadwick Boseman, the actor who played Jackie Robinson in the movie "42." Boseman died from colon cancer Friday, the day Major League Baseball marked its annual Jackie Robinson Day.
This is all made more shocking since it was during the Dodgers game on Jackie Robinson day that the announcement of Chadwicks death was made via Twitter.

Chadwick then went on too play the role of the 'Father of Soul” James Brown, in the film Get on Up
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=upeKFdDWk4I
James brown had a ritual that he would perform on stage where he got down on his knees and a cape was placed upon his shoulders to give him the strength to “Get on Up”

Boseman starred along side Nelsan Ellis who played Bobby Byrd
In 1952 Bobby Byrd formed and sang with a gospel group called the Gospel Starlighters. During a friendly baseball match at a juvenile prison, he met a young James Brown who was serving time there on robbery charges. Byrd befriended him and arranged for Byrd's family to oversee Brown's parole.[3] This began a personal and professional association that lasted until 1973.

https://www.imdb.com/name/nm1734700/
Nelsan Ellis also stared in the 2008 film The Express, along with Boseman. The film being about the first African American winner of the Heisman Trophy another First on the list of Firsts.
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0469903/?ref_=nm_flmg_act_27
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Butler
I also took note of Nelsan Ellis playing Martin Luther KING Jr in the film “The Butler”
Which was the final film of Laura Ziskin who died of breast cancer 6-12-2011 (Da 5 bloods releases on the 13th anniversary of Laura's death to Cancer.)
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laura_Ziskin
In the late 1960s, after civil rights activist Martin Luther King, Jr.'s assassination, Louis tells his family that he has joined the Black Panthers. Cecil orders Louis and his girlfriend to leave his house. Louis is arrested again. Cecil becomes aware of President Richard Nixon's plans to suppress the Black Panthers.
Remember that Boseman died on the 75th anniversary of Jackie Robinson day and the 57th Anniversary of MLKs I have a dream speech in the National Mall/Lincoln memorial.
The reason Nelsan Ellis stands out to me is he was connected with Joan Lees death as her death was 7-6 and his was 7-8 and they were mirrors of one another. 93/39 black/white male/female. The mirroring element is highly important. But in seeing Boseman and Ellis together in 2 films made seeing Ellis's birth-date that much more potent.
Nelsan Eliis Born 11-30-1977 Chadwick Boseman Born 11-29-1977
Only 1 day separates the birth of these two men.

We are 3 episodes into the new HBO TV show about Jim Crow era racism in a Lovecraftian horror show called Lovecraft Country which debuted on 8-16-2020 12 day before Jackie Robinson day and Bosemans Death.
The first episode opens with a Dream Sequence.
“The opening monologue we hear in the first sequence of “Sundown” is a quote from the 1950 biopic The Jackie Robinson Story, a rosy recounting of the first officially acknowledged Black baseball player to join the Major Leagues. “This is the story of a boy and his dream,” the narrator recounts as our hero, Atticus, a.k.a. Tic, literally dreams of fighting a war, first against enemies in the trenches, and then against giant UFOs and flying Cthulhus. “But more than that, it is the story of an American boy and dream that is truly American.”

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Jackie_Robinson_Story
A Biopic where Jackie Robinson plays himself.
Note The American Dream and I have a dream, coated with some revisionist history Lovecraft lore that Lovecraft would hate as he was a racist.( he had a cat named “NI##ER)

Da 5 Bloods is Bosemans most recent release who he plays alongside/with Johnathon Majors the man who had the dream about Jackie Robinson destroying the nightmare starspawn creature in the opening scene of Lovecraft Country.
https://www.imdb.com/name/nm3718007/?ref_=tt_cl_t1
In LCC Majors is a Korean War vet and in Da 5 Bloods he is involved in the Vietnam War.
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt9777644/?ref_=nm_flmg_act_3
As he rages to himself, Paul has a vision of Norman who reminds him that he was the one who had killed him, having shot him by accident during the firefight, and that he should let go of his guilt. Desroche's men find Paul and kill him. At the temple, Desroche and the gunmen arrive. After confronting the Frenchman, now wearing Paul's MAGA hat, Otis, Melvin and Vinh start shooting, killing all of Desroche's men. Desroche wounds Otis and tries to finish him off with a hand grenade, but Melvin sacrifices himself by leaping on top of it. Desroche prepares to execute Otis, but David shoots and kills him with Otis's gun. Vinh helps the surviving Bloods share out the gold. Melvin's widow receives his share, and Eddie's goes to a Black Lives Matter organization. Hedy and Simon donate their shares to LAMB in Seppo's name. Norman's remains are brought home to his family by the military. David reads a letter from Paul, who tells him that he will always love him. Otis visits Tiên and bonds with his daughter for the first time.

Well that's a surprise. The Vietnam film flashes forward too today and has both a MAGA hat AND BLM



Kobe and Boseman.......

I made a similar post about the Life and death and synchromystic web of Kobe earlier this year and we are now seeing an interesting mirror in Bosemans death.

Chadwick had posted the video to launch Operation 42, a scheme that donated $4.2million worth of PPE to hospital that looked after African American communities most affected by coronavirus.
The actor spoke to the camera about the cause clad in a purple baseball cap wearing the mark of the charity and a full beard.

Sigma Pi Phi (ΣΠΦ) is the first successful and oldest Black Greek-lettered organization. Sigma Pi Phi was founded in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, on May 15, 1904. The fraternity quickly established chapters (referred to as "member boulés"
The word boulé, derived from ancient Greek βουλή), originally referred to a council of nobles advising a king. It is also used by the African-American sorority Alpha Kappa Alpha
Sigma Pi Phi founder Henry McKee Minton and Martin Luther King Jr
Boule was founded 3333 weeks before MLK assassination.
ames Weldon Johnson is a member of Phi Beta Sigma, as is civil rights leader and member of Congress John Lewis
Sigma Pi Phi is open to members of all races, as can be demonstrated by its well-known white member Jack Greenberg, who succeeded Thurgood Marshall as the leader of the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, Inc.

Ok folks, did I leave anything out? Well im sure by the nature of such research I left everything out. But I went with my gut and showed all the elements that resonated with me in combination with the current zietgiest (spirit of culture)
Let me try and do a TLDR, god forgive me.
TLDR
https://www.cosmopolitan.com/entertainment/movies/amp32871563/chadwick-boseman-age-da-5-bloods/
First the Date of birth being altered on all sources was the first red flag.
Chadwick boseman died on the would be 103rd birthday of the cocreator of Black Panther Jack Kirby on the same day as the 57th March on Washington where MLK performed his I have a Dream speech and also the day of the postponed Jackie Robinson day where Boseman Played Jackie and wore the 42.
He played alongside Nelsan Ellis in 2 films Nelsan died 7-8-17 a couple days after Joan Lee whos birthday was also altered and scrubbed off the internet to hide the truth apparent within the facts. Birth till 9-11 was 77y 7m 7 d from 9-11 till death was 5777 days ending up in the middle of Hebrew year 5777 and on dieng on the release date of spider-man homecoming.
This whole thing is about Black white and the Rainbow we are all in, but the light just has to shine at the right angle (42) for us to have 2020 vision, but most likely hindsight will be 2020 and years later all of this will make sense.

You may have seen my previous writings on such recent events and that might give you better perspective on the whole. Im not the guy saying these are the biblical endtimes, or the guy saying this is all the work of the illuminati.
Im the guy saying we don't have any clue to what consciousness and reality actually is. Im the guy that believes the universe is the great teacher. EVERYTHING humans know and every idea that has arisen has arisen out of nature. Every animal is a teacher, every process in physics is a teacher, every element of creation by man and god is a teaching tool. We are trying to learn what we are. The universe is a troll but in the way a ZEN master riddles his students with KOANS that ostensibly have no true meaning. But it is the process of play and entertaining ideas and convincing ourselves that every truth could be false and every fallacy could be true.
I don't have the answers, I just see what is there to be seen and I think about what is seen and relay my thoughts and the things I see. You may have to read through this a couple times to understand the crux of each individual link I mention but if you come at this with an open mind you may have an easier time and learn something.
R.I.P Chadwick, Kobe,Martin,Malcolm,James,Thurgood, T'challa and every other black icon in history to bring us to where we are today. We are at the start of the rainbow bridge and we can journey up through all the colors to get to the Crown, for we are all kings and queens heros and villains on this world stage. PLAY your part!

2020.08.31 18:18 Agnimitra42 Any good smaller cities for a single gay man?

I’m a 30-something single gay guy, and I’m hoping to relocate soon. I live in the Seattle area (Bellingham WA to be exact) and I am tired of the rat race and exorbitant cost of living. It seems like all the best cities for gay men are New York, LA, SF, Seattle, Portland, Chicago, Miami. But they also seem to be really expensive, fast-paced, and crowded. Even Portland. Are there any low-key, low-stress, smaller cities for a single gay man in his 30s? I don’t need a robust scene, as I’m not huge into any gay scenes, but I’d like to be somewhere where I can date and where there are more than just the same 5 guys. Does such a place exist or am I asking too much? Thanks! PS, I work in the restaurant industry so I can pretty much work anywhere (assuming Covid doesn’t destroy the entire industry).

2020.08.30 15:37 FoggyGlassEye 1969- part 3 of 4

Part 1- August
Part 2-September
Part 4- November
October
The Rose City Transit bus rolled to a stop, just before the endless sprawl of suburbs that bridged the gap between Portland and Gresham. “End of the line,” the driver called out, not bothering to glance in the passengers’ direction. Red considered the road ahead, reminded again of what Blake said about the city’s plans to take over the busses and expand their reach. Wouldn’t mind seeing the line go all the way across Gresham someday, he mused.
He watched as the driver opened his window and lit a cigarette. Long day? Same here, fella. Red slowly pulled himself out of the seat, his knees popping as he did so, and stepped out into the red-orange glow of dusk.
So began yet another long walk from the bus stop to the Black Rose House. Red had grown used to being pulled from one side of town to the other in his first weeks working for Blake Howard, enjoying the variety in the busywork he’d been assigned, but the last month or so had been taxing for a different reason: they were boring.
The task of putting pressure on the chemists- which Red believed at the time would be a quick job- had dragged on into October. They were students, after all, toiling away at Blake’s secret project with only vague, secret instructions to guide them. Whatever the ‘funtime gas’ was supposed to be, it was an essential part of Blake’s plans for Portland, and he trusted Red with the job of making it happen. What exactly the funtime gas was meant to be, however, was classified. Those details were for Blake’s inner circle only, which Red had yet to infiltrate.
On his current assignment, Red had to navigate the conflicting process of trying to stop Blake’s plans while pretending to help the anarchist make it happen- all without knowing what the endgame was in the first place. The mastermind didn’t make it easy. For all his grievances with Blake, Red had to admit that he ran a tight ship; not a single person had let any crucial information slip, not even the chemists.
Blake’s instructions had clearly leaned towards Samuel Rook being the preferred point of contact, so Red gave all of his attention to Bruce Ashur instead. Bruce was a well-liked student with a passion for science, a bright mind who Red could easily see in a high-ranking position of government one day. Samuel Rook, on the other hand, was an unremarkable fellow who seemed to rub his classmates the wrong way often. Sam had a different sort of spark in his eye that reminded Red of his housemates, an intensity that could easily be tapped into. He’s all strings, looking for someone to pull them, Red had considered as he shook the boy’s hand earlier that day.
That afternoon, during a lunch meeting with the chemists, Red was given a new status update that made his heart sink. “We’re gathering subjects for a trial run,” Sam said through a mouthful of egg salad sandwich, “so we’re well on our way. You’ll let the boss know, right?”
The tests would begin that weekend, and from there, Red still had no earthly idea how long the gas would take to finish. Neither of the boys could commit to a specific date, both making it clear that the first wave of subjects would determine how close they were. “We’ve tested it on ourselves, of course,” Bruce admitted as he wiped sweat from his forehead, “but we need to confirm that it has a similar effect on all kinds of people- per the boss’ instructions, of course. ”
“Mr. Howard looks forward to seeing the results of your test,” Red said. In his experience, the more excited Sam got, the more likely he was to leave quickly.
The impressionable boy grinned at the mention of their mutual friend. “Speaking of, there’s more work to do before we’re ready for the test. We still have to test the masks. I’ll hop to it right away.”
As Sam left Red’s sight, Bruce’s demeanor changed. “Could you do me a favor, Mr. Clay?” Bruce asked, retrieving a pencil and paper from his pocket.
“I’d have to know what the favor is,” Red replied.
Bruce jotted down a phone number and handed it to Red. “I need you to call this number two hours from now.”
Red pocketed the paper. “Sure thing,” he agreed. Beyond the brave front he was trying to put up, Bruce looked like an anxious wreck. That’s an opening, Red considered, hoping that he was right both for the sake of the job, and for his own sanity. He was sick of waiting on these boys like a damned babysitter.
Lost in thought as he walked down the sidewalk, Red nearly missed the phone booth. He checked his watch. Just about two hours had passed. He entered the booth, shoved a dime in and dialed the number.
After a few rings, a quiet voice answered. “Hello?” Bruce asked, barely a whisper. Cars drove past him in the background.
“This is Clay,”
“Thank God,” Bruce said. “I have to be quiet because I’m at a payphone. I assume there’s ears everywhere. At first I thought you were one of them, just another goon working for this Blake fellow, but I think you’re different. I have so many questions and I’m sure you won’t answer most of them, but I have this feeling- call it an instinct if you like- that I can ask you this one single question and you’ll answer it earnestly.”
Red tensed up. Well that was a lot all at once. He already knew that Bruce wasn’t so easily radicalized as Samuel, but he suddenly had the terrible feeling that Bruce was about to ask too much of him. Don’t make me squeeze you, Red begged silently, knowing that he’d have to act if Bruce overstepped and Blake learned about it.
After a moment, Red finally responded. “You get one question.”
“Fantastic!” Bruce whispered excitedly. “Now listen, I’m no dummy, I can see that we’re playing a dangerous game here. Heck, the funtime gas alone is enough to give up the ghost. They’re planning something terrible, something dangerous. Knowing as much as I do about the boss, I’m fully aware that I can’t ask you for more information, so I’m going to ask you something else that will tell me all I need to know.”
“Smart man,” Red joked, glancing around. The street seemed empty enough, but he could feel the paranoia reaching out from Bruce’s end of the phone, washing over him. “So ask.”
“You don’t know what he’s planning either, do you?”
Red nearly dropped the phone, then resisted the urge to hang up. He stared at the browning leaves as they flew past the booth, gathering at curbs and storm drains, ready to be stomped into a paste by costumed children the following night. He tried to let his mind wander, to disassociate, but his purpose anchored him to that moment, and wouldn’t let him step outside of himself. “No,” he admitted, “I probably know even less than you do.”
Bruce cursed under his breath. “Then why the hell are you- nevermind. I had one question, and now I have my answer. Listen, I don’t know what your intentions are, but I don’t get the feeling that you want to fight the power, either. So tell me, then, Clay: what should I do?”
Red considered his options. The test was coming up, and if Bruce and Sam had already tried it out on themselves, the trial run seemed like the final step before Blake could get his hands on the gas. “I’ll tell you what my father once told me when I had a tough decision to make. He said ‘if you don’t know what to do, take a moment to consider. If that didn’t help, take another. Give yourself all the time you need, because you’ve got all the time in the world.’ Understand?”
“But how?” Bruce seemed desperate, not thinking clearly. Red would have to shepherd him to the answer.
“If the gas doesn’t work, it’ll need more time to get the kinks out, won’t it?”
He couldn’t see it, but Red imagined that Portland glowed just a little bit brighter in the distance as the light went off above Bruce’s head. “Oh, I can handle that! Sam doesn’t know the difference between a vial and an ampoule!”
“Now you’ve got it,” Red said. “Good luck, and remember- you’ve got all the time in the world.”
Setting the phone back on the receiver, he exited the booth, greeting the cool wind with a smile. Since he first made contact, Red could feel the clock ticking away in the back of his mind, he could see the flame reaching the base of the lit fuse behind his closed eyes, but now all of that pressure was gone. Finally, he had something under his control, and it would be all he needed to take Blake down.
The story he told Bruce about his father was, naturally, a lie. James Clay’s background may include a close relationship with Dad, but Red had no parents, only the Agency. He felt no guilt for manipulating the scared boy on the other end of the line. After all, he finally had the breathing room he needed to get closer to Blake.
There was no rush. He had all the time in the world.
---
Lori was waiting for Red on the front porch of the Black Rose House, a loosely-gathered pile of clothes at her side. Before he could ask her if she was okay, Lori scrambled to her feet and hugged him. The affection was unexpected; he knew from the glances they shared whenever crossing paths that she had a… fondness… for him, but they’d never been close. To Red, she was simply a distraction.
“They’re kicking me out, Clay,” she mumbled, crying into Red’s shirt.
He embraced her, personally more interested in the information she could provide than the girl herself. “What for?” he asked, hoping that she wouldn’t talk his ear off.
Wiping the tears away, Lori took a step back and looked into Red’s eyes. “I can trust you, right?”
“Of course,” Red lied. Tell me your secrets, minion.
“You know Beth. Spends a lot of time with the other girls, always up for whatever.”
Red had to remember which one was Beth. “Blonde, fond of the eyeliner. Nice smile.”
“Yeah,” Lori said, smiling sadly. “I know you’ve been really busy with all the work Barney’s been giving you, so you may not have noticed, but Beth and Hog were spending a lot of time together. Sometimes they’d go to the drive-in alone, just the two of them.”
“Not a surprise, knowing Hog’s habits,” Red joked.
“You noticed that. Good. Did you notice that Hog’s new girlfriends always leave the house without so much as a warning?”
“No,” Red admitted. He truly hadn’t noticed. The house was such an open and welcoming environment for skags and lowlifes that it wasn’t uncommon to see a new face- or to realize suddenly that you haven’t seen someone in weeks. People moved along, which wasn’t alarming on it’s own, but it seemed like a pattern was developing around Blake’s mysterious confidant.
“Well I did, and I saw it happen again last night. My roommate wanted some private time with Hopper, so I went to the kitchen to put together a midnight snack. While I was in the pantry, Hog and Beth came through and went down to the basement. I assumed that love was in the air and they wanted their own privacy, so I didn’t go down there.”
“The basement…” Red mumbled. It was the only part of the house he wasn’t allowed in, clearly a perfect place to hide plans for a domestic terrorist attack. This could be the excuse he needed to go poking around.
“Yeah, and I didn’t see either of them come up before I went back upstairs. Today, though, I saw Hog lounging around with another girl and asked him where Beth was. He told me that she took a train back home, but I could tell that he was lying. I tried to go look for her, but Barney stopped me at the door and dragged me out here. She’s still down there, James, I’m sure of it!”
Red nodded. “I believe you. Listen, I’ll look into it. For now, grab your things and get on the bus head into town. Go downtown, take the second stop after you cross the Ross Island Bridge. You’re gonna go six blocks north, two blocks west and stop at a diner. Tell the waitress you’re a friend of mine and that you need a more quiet room. They’ll put you up for the night, keep you safe.”
“Wait,” Lori said, “a diner? How could a waitress keep me safe from Blake?”
Red grabbed her by the shoulders. “Listen to me: there are things at work that go far beyond Beth. I will help her if I can, but for now, I can only assure your safety. Second stop, six blocks north, two blocks west, a quiet room. Remember that, okay?”
Lori’s body shook in his hands. “Okay…” she agreed, completely lost, but fueled more by fear than by curiosity.
He watched as she gathered her clothes and began the long walk to the bus stop. She’ll make a great witness, he considered, straightening his shirt and heading for the front doors.
The entryway was empty, and Red could head music upstairs. Making a bee line for the kitchen, Red wondered if he’d find a smoking gun or just more smoke. His hopes were on anything that could further link Blake with the Students for a Democratic Society; after all, he was with them when they protested McNamara at Harvard, and just a few weeks ago, another group with ties to the SDS raised hell in Chicago. They were already calling it the Day of Rage in the papers.
The kitchen was also empty. Before heading down, Red retrieved a small steak knife and pocketed it just in case. He stood by the door to the basement for a moment, listening, and heard nothing on the other side. Taking his chances, Red quietly opened the door and slipped through before anyone could see.
The steps were short and shoddily-crafted. They weren’t straight, instead leaning slightly down, creating a strange decline. The brick walls were equally as amateurish. Whoever built the house above did not work on the basement, Red thought as he reached the floor, an uneven concrete with bubbles forever dried onto the surface.
Hold the knife’s handle in his pocket, Red began clearing the rooms. The room near the stairs was mostly empty, save for a large table covered in chemistry supplies. Stolen during the day of the riot, Red guessed. A bookshelf on the far wall was filled with textbooks, many with bookmarks sticking out from between the pages. Red imagined that this was where Blake first tried to create the funtime gas before he had to bring Bruce and Sam into his scheme.
Red moved on to the next room, and was immediately reminded of Barney and what he did during the riots. Police uniforms were hung on racks against the walls. In the center of the room, tables were covered in riot gear, pistols, shotguns, ammo and gas masks.
Red picked up one of the masks. “We still have to test the masks,” Sam had said earlier.
The image began to form in Red’s mind. Another protest, organized again by Blake Howard, takes place on the college campus. An officer strikes a protestor, starting another riot. This isn’t the first time a cop drew first blood.
The riots take a bloody turn as officers in riot gear and gas masks arrived on the scene, throwing a chemical agent into the crowd that causes confusion and chaos. As teachers, students and other civilians watch on, the protestors are gunned down, a peaceful demonstration turned brutal massacre.
The police would claim innocence. The local government would naturally side with them, and they would lose all public trust. More riots would rise in the wake of the slaughter, on the bodies of so many martyred youth who just wanted a better future for everyone.
Blake wanted the whole city to burn, and he could make it happen. The gas was all he needed.
Unbeknownst to Blake, however, Red had already put a stop to that with the help of Bruce. It was time to mobilize the Agency. It was time to finally take Blake down.
As he returned the gas mask to the table, Red heard a loud clicking sound. He peeked into the makeshift lab and watched as the bookcase began to swing open. The unmistakably large form of Hog entered the room, followed by the Black Rose himself.
“I hate doing that,” Hog complained, dabbing at his forehead with a handkerchief.
Blake chuckled, the deep grunts like a car engine struggling to start. “Orders are orders.”
“Surely what we have planned will be enough to appease them,” Hog argued, turning his back to the door. Red silently returned to other room, listening from the doorway.
“You know Mr. Grady. He wants it all. No stone unturned, no drop unspilled. If we say no to him, it’s our necks on the chopping blocks.”
Who the hell is Mr. Grady? Red considered. The way Blake’s talking about him, it’s like…
“Of course,” Hog agreed, “anything for the Black Rose.”
…it’s like he’s Blake’s boss. An unreasonable rage threatened to cloud Red’s judgement. He’s not an anarchist at all- he’s not even the man in charge!
As Red retreated further into the other room, Hog and Blake made their way to the staircase. Red’s hand tightened on the knife in his pocket, just in case, and only let go after hearing the door to the kitchen close behind them.
Red returned to the bookcase. Whatever was on the other side, Blake and Hog were hiding it from everyone else. He pulled the shelf towards him. It was heavy, but it opened.
On the other side, a large tunnel had been dug out. Wooden support beams lined the walls and low ceiling. The path was pitch black, so Red used the dim glow of his lighter to continue.
The path wound left and right, seemingly at random, until doors began to appear on the sides. The first had a heavy lock on the handle, but most were behind shelves and bookcases. Red peeked into several basements, all of which seemed entirely empty. They were access points, but to what? Why would Blake need such an interconnected network of tunnels?
As he neared the end of the tunnel, his already-punished feet aching, Red saw a light ahead. He wondered if it was another basement, another connected house, but as he got close, he realized that he was staring at a moonlit clearing. The tunnel had brought him into the nearby woods.
Red had no idea where he was at first. On the other side of the clearing, however, was a dirt path. He followed the path, recognizing as he reached a sidewalk that it was a hiking trail. I have no idea what those other basements are for, Red considered, but that was clearly more than just an escape tunnel.
Whatever was going on, Red knew that the Agency would need more information before moving in. The houses, the locked door in the tunnel, the missing girls, the identity of Mr. Grady. Red had a lot more work to do, but he had more than enough time to do it.
As Red finally reached the Black Rose House again, having taken the sidewalk instead of risking anyone seeing him exit the basement, he found Barney waiting for him. “Hey, pal,” he greeted.
Barney held out a note. “Word from the boss. It’s urgent. You’re needed downtown.”
Red unfolded the note and read it immediately.

2020.08.30 08:34 chelseanyc200 Coach Beard...

Coach Beard is easily my second-favorite character on the show (after, of course, Ted). The final scene in this week's ep prompted these random thoughts:
- We don't know his first name, right? I wonder if it will be a running gag but hopefully the show will reveal it at a special moment, Kramer-like.
- Coach and Ted are simpatico, communicating nearly wordlessly (like when surveying their office, they know instantly to move their desks together, or the final scene of ep. 5) and finishing each other's sentences like:
Ted: You know what today feels like?
Coach Beard: First day of school
Ted: First day of school
or
Ted: Coach, you know what I'm thinking about right now?
Coach: West Side Story?
Ted: You know it, Sharks and Jets
- Brendan Hunt and Jason Sudeikis have an easy physical rapport as well, likely borne from them knowing each other for years from their Chicago improv days.
- Coach is a man of few words (given their rapport) and it seems almost as if the show has been trying to see how much they can pare back his lines while maintaining a strong presence in the show. For example, in ep. 5, he utters just a single word in two scenes and in a third scene he has just a single sentence. I wonder if they are doing it because it's right for the character or if Hunt is focused more on the producing/writing of the show.
- Coach's silent demeanor coveys mystery and the little tidbits you see about him (saying he stayed up all night, but without explanation, or showing up at a fundraiser with a date playing chess) make him ever more intriguing.
- It would be cool if at one point, as is common now with premium/cable/streaming shows, they could do a standalone episode from his viewpoint, possibly even covering an entire season of plot but filling in little bits of plot and character, since Coach always seems to be observing and processing what he sees.
What do other people like about Coach?

Two competitors are already locked in for the main event of Allstate Arena’s annual AEW show, All Out, those two competitors being the Lunatic, Dean Ambrose, and the Lone Wolf, the AEW World Champion, Roman Reigns. However, the dynamic was not that simple. SETH ROLLINS has had two opportunities to get into the match, each opportunity, he’s failed to seize.
We are on the fast track to All Out. The Shield’s storied rivalry will come to a close, but not every question has been answered yet again. Rollins. Ambrose. Reigns. Three men that have revolutionized wrestling across the last two years, on epic ascents to the top. Rollins wants a way in. Ambrose wants revenge. Reigns wants domination.
The Hounds of Justice are out for each other.

Booking the Shield’s Debut in 2020 in Any Promotion (Finale: SHIELD.)

All Elite Wrestling: Dynamite – 27th July 2022
Mere days removed from Fight For the Fallen, where Dean Ambrose defeated Seth Rollins in the main event, and Roman Reigns defeated Brian Cage to retain the AEW World Championship, we see Seth Rollins come out to the ring. He issues an ‘Open Challenge’ to anyone in the back, claiming that he’s not going down without a fight.

Seth Rollins Gauntlet
That Open Challenge is answered by none other than Rey Fenix. One of the Shield’s opponents in one of their first feuds. Fenix comes down to the ring, the bell rings and the two have a stellar match, kicking off Dynamite with a bang, the two going into full throttle, with Rollins coming out on top after a Phoenix Splash followed by a Skywalker, a clean initial win for Rollins.
Seth Rollins def. Ray Fenix (7 minutes)
Rollins wastes no time getting back on the mic as Fenix limps up the ramp, Rollins demands another opponent, as BRODIE LEE comes down to the ring. Rollins grins at the arrival of one of AEW’s highest calibre stars, but that grin turns to regret early, as Lee DOMINATES Rollins, almost a squash. Fatigue already beginning to set in on the Architect, Lee pleasures himself on humiliating Rollins, who makes a comeback, he is able to pull away with the win after a roll up pin.
Seth Rollins def. Brodie Lee (15 minutes)
The next person down to the ring is MJF. Capitalizing on the defeated Rollins, who can barely stand on his own to feet, MJF commands for the ref to ring the bell, and when the ref does so, MJF immediately pounces on Rollins, stomping him in the corner, gloating to him, taunting him. Rollins makes efforts to launch an attack on MJF, but to no avail, who chuckles at the ‘pathetic’ effort of Rollins.
The match kicks into gear when Rollins initiates his comeback sequence, Wardlow attempts to get involved, but Rollins disposes of him, he goes out onto the apron, SPRINGBOARD CROSSBODY TO THE OUTSIDE, WHERE MJF AND WARDLOW ARE! Rollins and MJF have an epic battle inside the ring, MJF gets a chair and attempts to strike Rollins, Rollins dodges and connects with Wardlow, Rollins then gets a shocked MJF, SKYWALKER! 1…2… MJF KICKS OUT, ROLLINS IS STRAIGHT TO HIS FEET, ROLLINS DEBUTS THE CURB STOMP! 1…2…3!
Seth Rollins def. MJF (23 minutes)
Rollins celebrates his win, and there doesn’t seem to be anymore people lining up to face the Architect, he has made a statement tonight, proving himself as the Iron Man of AEW, defeating MJF, Brodie Lee and Rey Fenix in one night. Rollins goes up to the top rope, and celebrates his victory, he gets down and turns around… SPEAR!
IT’S ROMAN REIGNS! THE AEW WORLD CHAMPION HAS JUST SPEARED SETH ROLLINS! REIGNS GOES INTO THE CORNER, HE WANTS TO GO FOR ANOTHER ONE! ‘OOOOAAAH-‘
The fans pop, Reigns’ assault of Seth Rollins is interrupted by Reigns’ opponent for All Out, DEAN AMBROSE! Ambrose walks out and marches down to the ring, Reigns turns his attention to the ramp, Seth then turns Reigns around, SUPERKICK! Ambrose gets into the ring, DIRTY DEEDS!
The AEW World Champion has just been taken down! On the canvas is the AEW World Championship, both Ambrose and Rollins grab the title at the same time, Ambrose tells Rollins “This isn’t your war.” Rollins contemplates, before shaking his head and leaving, as Ambrose and Reigns have a brawl.

All Elite Wrestling: Dynamite – 3rd August 2022
Seth Rollins cuts an in-ring promo, where he talks about the dynamic of the Shield ‘A brotherhood, an impenetrable bond. While it was believed that we were stronger than a unit, greed and desire consumed one of its members, and the group self-imploded.’ Rollins calls out the AEW World Champion, Roman Reigns, who does come out. The two do not brawl when they are in the ring, they keep civil.
Rollins cuts to the chase. He stakes his claim for the AEW World Championship, and wants to enter the main event at All Out in a few weeks time. The fans cheer in approval of Rollins’ offer, but Reigns downplays Rollins, declining it, and saying Rollins needs to earn a shot, and he’s had more than enough chances already. Reigns goes to leave the ring.
“You know me well, Roman.” Reigns turns his head. “You don’t give me this, I will make your life a living hell. All I’m asking for is ONE. MORE. OPPORTUNITY. Accept it, and show this audience that you have any sort of credibility inside you. Or reject it, and look like nothing but a coward.” Reigns walks towards Rollins. “I don’t have anything to prove to you, or the fans. The Shield is DEAD.” Reigns drops the mic and leaves.

All Elite Wrestling: Dynamite – 10th August 2022
Seth Rollins has became obsessed with trying to get the title opportunity at All Out. Tonight, Roman Reigns has his final defence of the AEW World Championship, going up against the Cleaner, Kenny Omega, in a PPV-worthy match. During the show, a vignette is shown of Dean Ambrose entering a desolate, ghetto gym, the only light being the sunlight that comes through the tinted and half-smashed glass windows.
In a backstage interview, Rollins says that he knows what he has to do to get the shot at the AEW World Championship. At the end of the show, both Reigns and Omega make their entrances, a big-match atmosphere in the arena.

Reigns and Omega have an absolute war in the main event, a slightly more methodical pace as both men know that a foot wrong could cost them the match and the main event of All Out. Omega catches Reigns’ Superman Punch attempt with a V-Trigger. Omega hits Reigns with repeated V-Triggers just to get him on his knees, he hits all of his signature moves and inflicts pain on the AEW World Champion, who is struggling to establish any form of momentum.
Omega has a grasp on the match, he goes for the One Winged Angel, Reigns slips out of it, pushes Omega against the ropes, SPEAR! Before he can go for the cover, Omega slides out of the ring, Reigns gutted. Both Omega and Reigns find themselves fighting on the top rope towards the end of the match, Omega goes for a hurricanrana from the top, Reigns catches him, sit out powerbomb from the top rope!
Both men are down, Reigns begins to limp to his feet, he wants to finish this match, but the attention turns towards the crowd, where Seth Rollins leaps over the barricade, a worn out Reigns in despair, ‘not now’ he murmurs. Seth takes a steel chair and watches from ringside, sitting down, as Omega then flings Reigns into the turnbuckles with a V-Trigger, Omega goes to the top rope and tries for a 450 Splash, but Reigns moves out of the way, he goes for a Superman Punch, OMEGA DUCKS, ROLLINS CLOBBERS REIGNS IN THE FACE WITH A STEEL CHAIR!

Reigns collapses to his knees, feeling a cut open up on his forehead where the chair connected. Seth, who looks totally consumed, raises the steel chair, going for another strike, but Omega walks in and throws the chair away, as he begins to argue with Rollins. Omega’s chance at the AEW World Championship has been busted thanks to the Architect!
Rollins gets escorted out of the building by security, Reigns gets medical attention, Rollins clearly regrets his actions tonight after being fully consumed by the desire for the AEW World Championship, it’s turned him into a monster.

All Elite Wrestling: Dynamite – 17th August 2022
It is said that Roman Reigns is injured, and won’t be fully fit for All Out after being struck in the face with a steel chair in the main event of last week. It is also announced that Kenny Omega has been inserted into the main event at All Out, therefore making it a triple threat for the AEW World Championship, after being so close to victory last week.
Towards the end of the show, Kenny Omega comes down to the ring, dwelling on the announcement. “Earlier today, I was given the news that I have been inserted into the main event of All Out for the AEW World Championship, and I will be facing Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose, after what transpired last week involving a certain Seth Rollins…
This all feels a little controversial to me, after all, I created the Shield, I discovered their potential, and I propelled them into Stardom. So, to some extent, I feel responsible for all of the carnage they’ve dished out, and all of the chaos that has ensued in the past weeks. I realized that Rollins, Reigns, Ambrose, they’re not my business anymore. It’s not my spotlight to take, and as a result, I will not be participating in the main event of All Out.” Some of the fans gasp, some cheer, some are in confusion.
“I do have one request, though…” Omega pauses, still contemplating his next words. “I would like Seth Rollins to come down to the ring.” Omega waits, the attention pointed towards the stage, where expectedly, Rollins’ music eventually does hit, he comes down to the ring, riddled with guilt, but his desire all the same. Once Seth steps in the ring, he has nothing to say.
“Seth, I have watched your career ever since Day One, from the days of Tyler Black, all the way to now, where you are one of the headlines of this brand. What happened last week… That isn’t the Seth Rollins I know. And may-be, that Seth Rollins we saw last week is still prominent right now, I know you, Seth, you’re a person with great desire, great determination, and you will not stop until you get the justice you crave!” Omega pauses, Rollins slowly nodding.
“I know there’s only one way to get the bad out of you, Seth.” The fans begin to catch on. “I firmly believe that you deserve this, and I don’t want you to let me down. The only way that I can bring the old Seth Rollins back… Is if I offer you my place in the main event of All Out!” the fans pop, as Rollins grins, Omega conflicted.
Rollins takes a minute, before replying to Omega. “I accept your offer.” Seth drops the mic, with Omega grinning, and it is now OFFICIAL, at AEW: All Out, it will be Dean Ambrose vs SETH ROLLINS vs Roman Reigns for the AEW World Championship! Rollins confronts Ambrose at the top of the ramp, they enter a brawl, with the locker room splitting it up.

All Elite Wrestling: Dynamite – 24th August 2022
On the go home show before All Out, Ambrose and Rollins have a promo war in the ring, setting the scene for their All Out main event, which is also to include Roman Reigns, if he is physically fit. Ambrose claims that Rollins’ has gone the dirty route, he couldn’t get an opportunity based on pure skill or wins, he had to whine and attack people. Reigns and Ambrose have both beat Rollins, and that will be no different at All Out.
Rollins claims that Ambrose was always the ‘weak link’ of the Shield, always in the shadows, contributing nothing and starting arguments, while Rollins and Ambrose were competing for championships in New Japan, Ambrose was either on the sidelines or competing in another tiny promotion for relevance.
The promo war reaches boiling point, before familiar music hits. Roman Reigns makes his return, AEW World Championship in hand, still wearing a neck brace after the damage done to him by a single chair shot from Seth Rollins. Reigns comes in, claiming that Rollins has lost all credibility, Ambrose has become infused by revenge, Reigns will always be the superior member of the Shield, and all he needs is the AEW World Championship.
The three have immense back and forth, insults being dished out, the promos even becoming emotional at one point, as they set the stage perfectly. “YOU’LL HAVE TO PUT A BULLET THROUGH MY HEAD IF YOU’RE THINKING OF KEEPING ME DOWN ON SATURDAY!” Ambrose exclaims, Rollins says that it’s his time, the stars are lined up for him, and Reigns reassures everyone that the Lone Wolf will prove why he will always be the greatest member of the Shield.
The three men stare down with each other, the stage is set for an amazing AEW World Championship main event in Chicago this Saturday at AEW All Out!
Before the show, a vignette is posted all across social media, with individual personal interviews with each member of the Shield, going through their contributions to the faction, their major results, how they were affected by the turn, and why they are going to win/retain the AEW World Championship at All Out.

The Lone Wolf
“It felt like… I was always being underestimated. I only need to show this title to prove that once I broke free from the Shield, I was able to reach my full potential.”
Power. Will. A man who prefers to let his in-ring work do the speaking, Roman Reigns went from being the Dark Horse to the Lone Wolf. The Shield’s New Japan run was when Reigns began to break into independence, getting into his own singles feuds, and being a vital part to the team in the Shield’s World Tag League run. Reigns kept the group together when Ambrose and Rollins were on the brink of turning on each other, so he firmly believes that he deserves recognition for keeping the group together as long as he did.
Competing in the G1 Climax, Reigns was able to pull off some amazing results, most notably against his Shield brother Dean Ambrose, knocking him out of the tournament. Reigns would go on to be recognized by Kazuchika Okada himself as a ‘wrestler with great potential to become a star of the industry’.
Reigns’ big breakthrough would come in the form with a feud with the Stone Pitbull, Tomohiro Ishii, as they fought for the NEVER Openweight Championship at Wrestle Kingdom, with Ishii coming out on top. Upon the Shield’s return to AEW, Reigns stood out, even teasing a feud with Hangman Adam Page, the current AEW World Champion.
Reigns was the one to break up the Shield’s so-called impenetrable bond, betraying Rollins and Ambrose after they lost to the Inner Circle on Dynamite. A short while later, Reigns would beat Page to win the AEW World Championship. Since then, Reigns has gone on to defeat Brian Cage and Seth Rollins to retain the belt, becoming the ‘Lone Wolf’ of AEW, and a force to be reckoned with.
At All Out, he wants to justify his decision to betray the Shield, by defeating them once and for all, and proving that he is the best Shield member. He has beat both men in singles action before, it is time for him to consolidate all of his growth in the past 2 years, and walk out of Chicago with the AEW World Championship still in his grasp.

The Architect
“I want this more than the other two. They do not understand what I’ve had to go through physically and mentally to get this match. It can’t be for nothing.”
Seth Rollins. A man that was recognised as top talent as soon as he introduced himself to the wrestling world. Agility. Intelligence. Critical. While Reigns believes he didn’t have much of a spotlight at first, Rollins was the exact opposite, all eyes were pointed at him as being the ‘next Kenny Omega’. In his New Japan run, Seth Rollins won the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Championship, he would lose it to Hiromu Takahashi, but still catch the eyes of the rest of the roster, as Seth would be challenged to a Tokyo Dome match by Will Ospreay.
The two fought in a Match of the Night contender, however, Will Ospreay came out on top. Seth has never been on the perfect wavelength with the other Shield members, most notably, an argument with Dean Ambrose in their World Tag League run stripped them of their synergy, ultimately costing them the tournament.
Seth has had the best singles matches out of all the Shield members, something he says he wasn’t credited for, at all. When Roman betrayed Seth, it left him scarred, broken. When he saw Roman Reigns win the AEW World Championship, Seth had his work set out for him. He came back with a vengeance, he faced Roman Reigns at Fyter Fest, coming short only by a small margin, a devastating defeat for the Architect.
His journey wouldn’t stop there, however, he would keep scratching and clawing for the championship, becoming obsessed with the belt, injuring Reigns, breaking up his friendship with Ambrose. When he finally got his shot, thanks to the creator of the Shield, Kenny Omega, doing what he thinks is right, Rollins has believed since that the stars are aligned for him to win the AEW World Championship.
He has watched Ambrose and Reigns inside and out, he knows their every trick. At All Out, Seth is out for triumph, looking to break the curse of losing in big matches. He doesn’t want to let Omega down. He doesn’t want to let the fans down. He doesn’t want to let AEW down, by letting the Lone Wolf walk out of All Out still the AEW Champion.
Seth Rollins finally has a chance to break the chain.

The Lunatic
“You’re gonna have to put a bullet through my head if you want to keep me down on Saturday!”
Charismatic. Daring. Assertive. Just a few times to describe the ‘Wild Card’ of the Shield, Dean Ambrose. A man who converts pain into determination, Ambrose was seen as a de-facto leader of the group upon their formation, making decisions on their behalf and speaking. An inconsistent G1 Cimax run saw Ambrose go to CZW, his home ground, to reassure himself and to go back to familiar territory. In his first match back, he won the CZW World Championship and held it all the way until December, where he lost it to Sami Callihan.
He rejoined Rollins and Reigns at AEW: Revolution, and he believes he was the worst affected by the Reigns betrayal. Mentally, it made him not want to leave bed in the morning, physically, he could barely walk if he was able to get out of bed in the first place. When he saw Reigns win the AEW World Championship, while he was sat in his bed fending off rehab, it fuelled Ambrose.
It gave him a reason to fight, and when Dean Ambrose has a reason to fight, chances are, he’s going to throw fists and stand his ground until he’s out cold. Ambrose has been on a revenge trip, picking up what he describes as a ‘career defining win’ against Seth Rollins at Fight for the Fallen. He has always been the best the Shield has to offer, at least that’s what he claims, which is why he was the leader. Reigns and Rollins could never live up to his standard, so that’s why they fell out.
At All Out, Dean Ambrose is going to complete his path of revenge, and win the AEW World Championship. This is not about proving dominant. This is not about fulfilling a destiny. It’s about fighting for what he believes in, and he believes that Rollins and Reigns have become so hell-bent on the AEW World Championship, it has turned them into people they’re not.
Dean Ambrose will fight forever if he has to.

All Elite Wrestling: All Out – 27th August 2022
AEW’s signature show, presented in front of a red-hot, always enthusiastic Chicago crowd. Sears Center is sold-out tonight, the stage is set for what could be AEW’s most stacked card to date, the audience is welcomed to AEW: All Out!
An amazing night of wrestling ensues, with constant reference throughout to the main event of the night for the AEW World Championship. We get through the 7 prior matches as we then reach the highly anticipated main event, everybody knows about the wars, the battles, the desire, it all culminates now, and the arena is BUZZING.
A promo package is shown, highlighting the Shield’s growth, dominance and downfall throughout these past two years. It shows the betrayal, Roman winning the AEW World Championship, the returns, the build, the interviews. After the promo package ends, there is a wideshot of the crowd, before the attention turns to the stage.

“REDESIGN, REBUILD, RECLAIM!” The fans are torn tonight, some are rooting for the Architect, others still haven’t forgiven him for his questionable actions in the past weeks just to get into this match. Rollins look up for it, he truly believes that tonight is his night, his moment. Seth makes an intense entrance, embracing the crowd and maintaining focus.
The Lunatic is here! The camera goes to the entrance of the arena, where DEAN AMBROSE appears out of the Chicago streets, into the arena, the fans are fully behind Ambrose, as he appears into a sea of AEW fans, walking down the steps. There are no theatrics to his entrance, just him walking through the crowd, he hops on top of the barricade and stretches his arms out to a chorus of cheers.
The same man that created the theme song for AEW competitor Shawn Spears makes a live appearance tonight, Josiah Williams plays out the AEW World Champion, the Lone Wolf, ROMAN REIGNS! Reigns poses on top of the ramp, pyro going off, as he marches down to the ring, not many of this Chicago crowd are behind him tonight, but that’s part of what goes into the name ‘The Lone Wolf.’
Reigns poses in the middle of the ring, Ambrose hopping back and forth, motivated, Rollins stretching in the corner. This is the culmination. This is what everyone has been waiting for. This is intensity. This is atmosphere. This is the climax. This is wrestling!

When the bell rings, the fans have not settled into their seats, they are on their feet, chanting for whoever they are behind tonight! Rollins, Reigns and Ambrose move one step closer to each other, surveying their opponents, before REIGNS HITS ROLLINS WITH A SUDDEN SUPERMAN PUNCH! Rollins slides to the outside of the ring, Ambrose is shocked, as Reigns urges Ambrose to go one-on-one.
They do so, entering a collar and elbow tie up, Reigns takes the upper hand early, he is used to this big match environment, he’s composed, in his element. Ambrose uses the rally of the crowd to get to his feet, irish whip, arm drag by Ambrose, he goes for another, but Reigns holds on, he goes for a hip toss, but Ambrose rolls through fluidly, Reigns then walks into an enziguri from Rollins, who is on the apron, sunset flip, he goes for the cover, 1…2.. Ambrose breaks it up!
Ambrose and Rollins then have a duel, they know each other in and out, no man is able to take the upper hand until Rollins breaks into a spree of momentum, he throws Ambrose to the outside of the ring where Reigns is, SUICIDE DIVE TO BOTH MEN! Rollins gets Reigns back inside the ring, Rollins goes for the Springboard Knee, but he drops down back onto the apron before he can commit, Reigns going for the Superman Punch but being completely and psychologically outsmarted by Rollins, who gets back into the ring and continues the beatdown on Reigns.
Rollins goes to the top rope, supposedly going for the Phoenix Splash, but Ambrose stops him, the two fight on the top rope, Ambrose goes for a superplex but Rollins stays put, Reigns comes over, powerbombs Ambrose, TOWER OF DOOM! Reigns takes the action to the outside of the ring, where he drives Ambrose into the apron, Seth then balances on the barricade, JUMPING LEAPING CLOTHESLINE TO AMBROSE! Reigns tries to drive him into the ring post, but Rollins stops it, he kicks Reigns in the midsection, Rollins goes up to the apron, HE LEAPS OFF, TILT A WHIRL DDT ONTO REIGNS FROM THE OUTSIDE! Rollins gets the crowd going, he leaps off the steel chairs, but REIGNS CATCHES HIM, BELLY TO BELLY ONTO THE OUTSIDE!
Back inside the ring, Reigns goes for a Sit Out Powerbomb on Rollins, who regains his senses last second, he reverses it into a hurricanrana, Ambrose leapfrogs over Reigns, who goes crashing into the middle turnbuckle, as Ambrose then goes for a Dirty Deeds on Rollins, who gets out of it, he connects a step up enziguri on Ambrose, sending him into the ropes, REIGNS COMES BACK WITH A SUPRMAN PUNCH ON ROLLINS, AMBROSE’S PENDULUM LARIAT CONNECTS WITH REIGNS, EVERYONE IS DOWN!
An absolute war of attrition so far, both men stagger to their feet and enter a three way striking exchange, Reigns, the powerhouse by nature, comes out on top, he delivers repeated Superman Punches to Ambrose, but he just won’t stay down! The fans reach a fever pitch, as Reigns goes to rebound off the ropes for more momentum, BUT ROLLINS HITS REIGNS WITH A RUNNING KNEE STRIKE!
Ambrose goes for the Dirty Deeds on Rollins, he connects it, 1…2… ROLLINS KICKS OUT OF THE DIRTY DEEDS! AMBROSE HAD THE VICOTRY IN GRASP THERE! Rollins rolls to the outside for a breather, as Reigns comes back into the fray, he locks in the Sleeper Hold on Ambrose! The same submission that made Reigns AEW World Champion, Reigns has victory so close here! Ambrose has his hand raised once, it falls to the canvas. Twice, to the canvas again. Ambrose is beginning to fade! The referee does it one more time, AMBROSE PUTS THE MIDDLE FINGER UP TO THE REFEREE!
Ambrose rolls over Reigns, pinning his shoulders down, 1…2… Roman kicks out just in time, both men get to their feet, SPEAR! REIGNS HAS HIT THE SPEAR ON AMBROSE, 1…2… ROLLINS BREAKS IT UP WITH A PHOENIX SPLASH! The fans can barely keep up with this amazing triple threat match, these three are putting everything into this AEW World Champion main event! Rollins goes for a Skywalker on Reigns, who pushes Rollins into the ropes, Reigns goes for a Superman Punch on Rollins, who ducks it and rebounds off the ropes again, he goes for a Curb Stomp on Reigns, who catches Rollins mid-air with a Sit Out Powerbomb! Reigns goes into the corner, ‘OOOOOOAAHHHH’ he exclaims, he begins to charge towards Rollins, going for the Spear, but AMBROSE LUNGES IN ON REIGNS ON THE LAST SECOND, HE BEGINS TO LAY INTO HIM, ENACTING REVENGE! Reigns slides to the outside of the ring, Ambrose rebounds off the ropes, Rollins goes for a lariat, Ambrose dodges and flings himself to the outside, going after Reigns!
Ambrose gets back inside the ring, BUT HE IS MET WITH AN IMMEDIATE GOD’S LAST GIFT FROM ROLLINS, HE IS PULLING OUT ALL OF THE STOPS! 1…2… AMBROSE KICKS OUT OF THE GOD’S LAST GIFT! Rollins does not know what he has to do to put away Ambrose, so he goes to the outside, he picks up a STEEL CHAIR! The same object that injured Reigns, he now wants to use on Ambrose, the obsession has gone too far!
Rollins slides in the ring, a sadistic expression with the chair in his hand, Ambrose barely has any sense right now, he has a bloodied forehead! Rollins contemplates as he looks into the eyes of his Shield brother, he becomes conflicted, and he throws away the chair! But he was wasting too much time contemplating, he walks right into a Dirty Deeds from Ambrose! 1…2.. REIGNS BREAKS UP THE PIN!
Dean and Roman enter a striking exchange, Roman headbutts Ambrose continuously, Dean falls into the ropes, perhaps going for the Pendulum Lariat, but Roman connects a SPEAR! COVER, 1…2… ROLLINS CURB STOMPS REIGNS, HE THROWS AMBROSE OUT OF THE RING, HE WAITS FOR REIGNS TO GET ON HIS KNEES, SETH CONNECTS A CURB STOMP ON REIGNS! HE POUNCES ON HIM FOR THE COVER, 1…2…3!
Seth Rollins def. Roman Reigns © vs Dean Ambrose (28 minutes)
HE HAS DONE IT! THE SEARS CENTER ERUPT AS THE BELL RINGS! “Ladies and gentlemen, your winner of this match, and NEWWWWW All Elite Wrestling World Champion, Seth Rollins!” Seth has done it! Despite being battered, he is able to muster enough adrenaline to get to his feet and lean against the ropes, glancing at the crowd, who Seth has been able to win over across the course of this match!
Seth turns around, and he sees the AEW World Championship presented to him, as he breaks into near tears. It was a long journey, a journey that nearly turned him insane, and he nearly resorted back to it at one point in the match, but he redeemed himself, and he is the new AEW World Champion!
He celebrates with the belt as tickertape falls from the rafters, pyro goes off from the ramp. This is finally his moment. He has dethroned the Lone Wolf. For Seth, he had to lose everything to win this championship. His brothers, his own faction. His relationship with Kenny Omega. It may be worth it, however, as Seth Rollins has his career defining moment.
All Out ends with Seth Rollins’ hand raised.

Epilogue
Seth Rollins would go on to have a lengthy reign with AEW World Championship, as Roman Reigns would go on to become more of an anti-hero, and Dean Ambrose would spend more time in New Japan Pro Wrestling. Rollins’ first AEW World Championship reign would come in the form of Kenny Omega, Omega comparing Rollins to himself in his early days and claiming that Rollins needs to ‘repay the favour.’
The Shield triple threat goes down as one of the best matches of the year, and their dominance/feud is regarded as one of the best long term angles in wrestling. Their great matches are remembered, their chemistry is never matched and while they all go on their own paths, they still keep that bond that holds them together, eventually reuniting two years after All Out.
The Shield had cemented themselves as the greatest faction of the modern era. And Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose became some of the most decorated competitors in the modern era. The Hounds of Justice had left their influence over the industry forever.

This is the first of the US seasons of LI that I have watched, and I'm def enjoying it, but I'm noticing a something different in how the men in the US version act. I don't know how to describe it, but there are certain very american things that the guys do.
-Lifting the girls weight. When one of the guys is bench pressing the gals. idk, i just can't imagine one of the UK love island guys doing this. so.... macho and like *eye roll*
-Being a "cool guy" but kinda pressuring a girl to have sex. I'm talking about James in this case. The way he is saying "i like you, but in the real world, we would have had sex. thats not weird! why do yOU think its weird. You are weird for questioning it!!!" just seems very distinct in the LI universe, but very common in the US dating scene haha.
-Being a frat bro. Carrington and his insecure, performative masculinity is just...... so Big 10 frat bro hahaha. I know he is from Utah! But still!
edit: I'm from Chicago, so maybe i just feel triggered by the way the men act, and it's less *exotic* bc they dont have British accents

2020.08.28 13:21 House_of_Suns /r/QOTSA Official Band of the Week 17: IGGY POP

Today we are going to take a dive into a Michigan Trailer Park.
I know, I know -- I can sense your excitement. Who doesn’t like going to a trailer park? It is here that we can find the archetypal artist who will lose themself in the music, the moment, they own it, they had better never let it go.
No, no, no….the trailer park is not on 8 Mile Road (though if I found Kim Basinger in a trailer park I would probably want to stay for some of that legendary spaghetti.)
And no, we are not looking for some guy in a feather boa who somehow pretends to be an American Badass. We are not visiting that guy who vociferously noted that he wasn’t straight out of Compton -- and he only dresses like he’s straight out the trailer. That guy (and presumably his weird fedora) grew up on a 6-Acre estate in a 5,000 square foot home.
Our hero really did come out of the trailer park. He has walked the stage with giants, and has stood bare-chested and leather-like among them. Today, we will focus on someone who seems to have developed a lifelong t-shirt allergy. A man that is accustomed to breaking the mold, forging something new, and of course, showing some skin. That's right. You could say this one’s got a real Lust for Life.
You guessed it, today’s artist is the one and only IGGY POP
About Them
I am willing to bet that there has never been a rock star named “James Newell Osterberg Jr”. It really doesn’t roll off the tongue.
Good thing young Jimmy realized this too. Born in 1947 and raised in that aforementioned tornado bowling alley, Iggy Pop was fortunate to have had exceptionally supportive parents, Louella Christensen and James Newell Osterberg Sr., who encouraged his forays into drumming and the music scene. After playing in a number of high school bands, Iggy adopted his trademark moniker after one of the first bands he recorded with, The Iguanas.
Yep. Now you are gonna look at him and think “Iguana Pop”. You’re welcome.
Iguana’s parents knew that their little reptile was exceptional from a young age. Though there was overwhelming societal pressure for him to live a normal life (and he did go to the University of Michigan before dropping out) they always supported him in his choices - no matter how weird they were. They went so far as to move out of their master bedroom to give him the space so that he could practice the drums. In contrast to this, Kid Rock had his own studio at age 13. (Side note: I may be completely making that up for dramatic contrast, but we all know that dude is a Chad). When Iggy dropped out to go to Chicago, his parents - while they worried - supported him.
Let’s not forget that his teenage years were the 1960’s, after all. In a time when the world was going absolutely crazy, many families were completely torn apart by conflict. Not the Osterbergs. But one must imagine that Iggy gave his parents plenty of reason to worry by his legendary on-stage antics, his self-destructive drug use, his multiple arrests, and his fuck-you punk attitude.
The transformative moment in Iggy’s musical career came when he moved off of the drum kit and out to the microphone. Iggy attributes this in part to seeing The Doors play live. Jim Morrison was high or drunk or both. He was rude and antagonistic and confrontational and pissed off everyone who came to the concert...and yet had a music career.
Iggy knew he could do that.
And so, the legendary punk band The Stooges was born. Joined by fellow Michigan natives guitarist Ron Asheton, Drummer Scott Asheton and bassist Dave Alexander, Iggy decided to do everything he could on stage to antagonize and fight his audience. In concerts, Iggy would bring out a blender or a vacuum cleaner just to increase the volume and the feedback from his mic.
The concerts were wild. They were primitive. They were outrageous. Iggy, bare chested, would cut himself with broken glass. He would smear peanut butter and ground meat on his chest. He threw watermelons at the audience, once concussing a fan. He snorted PCP and was immobilized and was only able to mumble the lyrics. He would expose his genitals. He was one of the first front men to go stage diving and crowd surfing.
Yeah, I know that this all sounds tame today. Hell, this is probably nothing compared to your last Tinder date. But in the late 1960’s, it was absolutely groundbreaking. The Stooges are widely considered to be one of the very first Punk Rock bands. The music did not matter so much as the attitude and the performance. They were the ultimate underground band and they lived the underground band life - absolute blowouts on stage, fueled by alcohol and drugs and addiction.
As you might expect, The Stooges’ antics drew a lot of attention. They got a record deal with Elektra (the same label that signed The Doors) and all kinds of attention from other artists. The most important connection for Iggy during this time was from the Thin White Duke himself, David Bowie. The Stooges released two albums - The Stooges and Fun House; toured; broke up; re-formed, released another album (Raw Power, produced by Bowie) and then broke up again.
Our favourite Iguana’s drug use got to the point where he was dancing with heroin. (Side note: who knew that broken glass, ground beef, and peanut butter use could lead to a heroin addiction? I mean, aside from being the worst possible version of PB&J, of course.) Iggy’s continued drug use would lead to the breakup of The Stooges. But it also launched his solo career.
As a solo artist, he completely changed his act and began singing Gospel music and hymns.
Nah, just kidding. When your night life involves snorting PCP and hurling melons, you are headed down a path of rock and roll debauchery. (Side note: if you are snorting melons and hurling PCP, you are doing it wrong.)
His antics continued, and amplified. He allowed himself to be whipped until he bled on stage. He fought biker gangs at concerts. He dove off the stage and face planted when an angry audience refused to let him crowd surf. Iggy checked himself into a mental hospital to clean up. Allegedly, Ziggy Stardust himself went to visit our saddle-skinned hero, and brought him some c-c-c-c-c-cocaine. I suppose that some people beat their addiction to one drug by becoming addicted to a different one...but replacing heroin with cocaine (though it might reduce your needle tracks) is gonna be hell on the nose. Bowie would recall the incident: “He wasn’t well; that’s all we knew. We thought we should bring him some drugs, because he probably hadn’t had any for days!”
Coke-toting Bowie proved to be one of the only visitors that Iggy received during his stay at the psyche ward. However, Major Tom’s continuing support soon saw Iggy joining him as a companion for the Station to Station tour. This was the Iguana’s first real experience in professional touring, and he was thoroughly impressed. That is, until both of them got caught handling the devils lettuce in Rochester, NY. Yeah, the drug addiction was still a problem - so what was the obvious solution?
Moving to West Berlin of course!
Yes, the pair went out to grand old, Soviet-surrounded free Germany. Berlin was a long way away from his Michigan trailer park, and Aladdin Sane wasn’t exactly a guy you’d meet in Muskegon. But Berlin - and Bowie - were just what he needed. See, Iggy was a bonafide performer, but Bowie and Berlin made him a songwriter. This collaboration - and a new deal with RCA records - led the leathery reptilian to create two amazing albums.
The Idiot features Bowie as a producer, on backing vocals, and on multiple instruments. It also has the first version of China Girl, a song they co-wrote. Bowie would famously re-record it for his multi-platinum album Let’s Dance. Admit it, that’s the version you know. The Idiot was released in March of 1977.
Bowie and Iggy went immediately back into the studio and recorded Lust for Life between April and June of 1977. This would prove to be his most iconic and enduring album, featuring the now quintessential title track and the Doors-inspired melodic song, The Passenger. While you may have heard these timeless tracks on car commercials, they represented an artist coming to a brand new stage of his career.
Critics hated it. Not because they weren’t great songs, but because the music was so completely different from anything he had done. Rolling Stone complained that his “...new stance is so utterly unchallenging and cautious.”
But Iggy did not care. When everyone else was into stadium rock, he fought his audience. Like, physically, with his fists. With the rise of Punk, he did the opposite, and became an actual singer. He is a walking, talking, peanut butter sandwich of contradiction.
When music went left, he went right. When everyone was going in one direction, he refused to move (perhaps because of the PCP). When synth-pop and Culture Club were big in the ‘80s, he recorded Real Wild Child. Somewhere along the way, the kid from upstate Michigan became more than anyone could have imagined.
He has 20 different solo albums and has collaborated on various projects with the B-52s, Bootsy Collins, Andy Warhol, Ridley Scott, Wes Craven, Nickelodeon, Debbie Harry, Guns ‘n’ Roses, Marilyn Manson, White Zombie, and has appeared as a mother-fucking-Vorta on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. He reunited with The Stooges and recorded and released two more albums. He has won a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. Hell, he probably filled in on drums with your Great Uncle’s bar band for a week back in the 60s. He’s seen it all, and has done even more. He defines what it means to be an icon.
So it is not surprising that his discography is like a visit to a BDSM dungeon: it takes you to uncomfortable places, but might just awaken something in you. Seriously, he has gone in every direction you can imagine -- plus some that you can’t, you uncreative clod. That’s why she left you, you know! You need to up your game in the bedroom!
Fuck. I might be projecting a bit there.
Anyway, we know that his music career led him to film, television, radio, guest appearances, and cruise line ads. But for our purposes, we also know that Iggy Pop was an absolute inspiration for a young and impressionable Joshua Michael Homme. When he had the opportunity, Josh cut an album with Iggy (Post Pop Depression 2016), shot a documentary with him (American Valhalla, 2017), and went on a world wide tour. Or, well, a tour of the US and Europe (plus one show in Canada). Suck it, rest of the world.
And if that kind of endorsement is not enough for you to take a dive into his back catalogue, I am going to hit you with a fucking melon. No, not just a melon - a melon in the middle of a carnal act. And those are goddam hard to find, I don’t mind telling you.
Links to QOTSA
Man, if you haven't seen American Valhalla, then what are you even doing here? Trust me, that movie makes every connection pretty clear.
But for those without a spare hour and a half, here’s a quick rundown. Josh and Iggy, Rock Gods that they are, blessed us in 2016 with the album Post Pop Depression. This joint effort, which also included Matt Helders (Arctic Monkeys) and Dean Fertita (You should already know what band this guy is in), was recorded at the legendary Rancho de la Luna. They even set out on a tour across the US and Europe in support of it.
There’s a lot more to talk about considering all the thought and effort that the two put into the record, but I’ll leave that to you and your movie watching habits. Trust me, it’s worth your time.
But before we go, it's worth mentioning again that Josh grew up listening to Iggy Pop, and, well, everyone and their mom has been influenced by this guy. He just exudes and embodies that kind of pure rock-star power. I’d bet that the Godfather of Punk has been a pretty important influence on our boy Josh, just for stage antics alone.
To quote Josh:
“What I thought (punk rock) was, was a total lie. And then I heard Iggy Pop’s Lust for Life and The Idiot for the first time”.
