2020.04.26 18:45 eaglesnation11 Eagles 53 Man Roster Projection (Post Draft Edition)

Hi all! Doing this again this year although these will appear less frequently due to lack of information coming out of OTAs and Mini-Camps. The projection after the draft is the hardest so I took my best shot at figuring out how the pieces are going to fit together. Reminder this is a prediction based on things like coach comments, team history and overall fit.
Wentz
Hurts
Sudfeld
3, Wentz obviously will come back firing after having his season taken away from him. Hurts was the most shocking selection I’ve seen as my time as an Eagles fan. It seems like he will be this team’s Tim Tebow and we will have special packages designed for his athleticism. Nate Sudfeld was signed to a $2M contract this offseason. I assumed it was to be the backup. Now I’m not sure what his role will be. I still think he makes the team due to being a high character guy and asset to the locker room. We usually keep 3 QBs anyway so why not?
Sanders
Scott
Warren II
Clement
7, It is clear the Miles Sanders is the new bell cow back for the Eagles. He had a tremendous season last year and I believe he has earned the role. Boston Scott has also earned his role as a change of pace back. We have a huge absence to fill with Jordan Howard leaving. I believe Howard will be replaced by either Michael Warren II or Elijah Holyfield. While Holyfield has shown incredible flashes Michael Warren II has shown an absolute nose for pay dirt in his career at Cincy. He had 33 TDs in his last two seasons. This would be a camp battle in July though. The Eagles usually carry four RBs and I don’t see that changing. According to Corey Clement him and the team have been in contact about a possible return. He will come dirt cheap and provide a lot of experience and wisdom in a RB room full of youth. I definitely see a reunion on the horizon. However, if Adrian Killins can prove his size isn’t a handicap he can win the spot. Still I think we throw Clement a bone and bring him back cheap.
Reagor
D. Jackson
Ward Jr.
Arcega-Whiteside
Hightower
Watkins
13, This was the hardest position group I ever had to write up. This is brought up by the curious case of Alshon Jeffery. There are 3 options that could happen. The first is that Alshon is traded or designated as a June 1st cut. There are clues this could happen as Roseman and Doug did not mention him when talking about their offense during the draft. Also DeSean Jackson specifically said the Eagles wanted a speedster to play ACROSS from him. This could really mean nothing, but with these roster write ups I consider everything. The second option is that Jeffery who is still recovering from lisfranc surgery will start the season on the PUP. The expected recovery is 9 months which places him back in September. However, there no way in knowing Jeffery’s progress due to no offseason program. The final option is he is healthy enough to play or miss only a game or two and he is kept on the 53. While Jeffery can return in September a good strategy could be to wait and see how his recovery progresses. Having him out six games is better than rushing him back if he’s not healthy. With the abundance of talent and speed at WR it isn’t the end of the world if he’s not ready to go by Week 1. In his absence Jalen Reagor will play across from Desean Jackson to create a track meet on the outside. Greg Ward Jr. has proven that he can hang in the league and I feel like he would produce more in the slot. He will have to compete for that job obviously, but I feel like he can earn it. After the Top 3 WRs we have developmental projects. Obviously JJ has been disappointing, but he could get some opportunities this year especially since he is big and tall WRs and we are lacking in big and tall WRs. John Hightower and Quez Watkins are backup speedsters in the event that someone goes down. Perhaps, Hightower can return kicks to take some pressure off Boston Scott who seems to have a bigger role in the offense. They have high ceilings, but they can afford to take a bit of time to sit and watch. Obviously the guy left off this list is former 49ers WR Marquise Goodwin. I feel like Goodwin’s place on the roster is dependent upon how much work the rookies can get in the offseason. During a post draft press conference Doug Pederson said we needed to rely on veterans. However, if the Eagles get a full or most of a camp they could get guys like Watkins and Hightower used to the offense. Howie’s offseason mantra is 1. Can he run? 2. Can he stay healthy? 3. Does he love to play? Goodwin checks two of those boxes. His health is concerning and if the coaching staff sees him hobbled in the summer he may be cut. We have a limited investment in him anyway after his contract was redone and the draft capital was negligible. Goodwin could be a potent threat in our offense, but right now he needs to have a strong and healthy camp to prove himself.
Ertz
Goedert
Perkins
16, Best TE combo in football. 12 personnel calls for at least three TEs active at all times in case one goes down. Josh Perkins proved last year he could hold his own when his number is called so he deserves a spot.
Dillard
Seumalo
Kelce
Brooks
L. Johnson
Mailata
Tega Wanagho
Pryor
Driscoll
25, The entire starting OL is back with the exception of Peters. By not bringing Peters back the Eagles have placed their trust in Andre Dillard to step up to protect Wentz’s blindside. Even though there’s reports questioning his toughness I believe he’s up for the challenge. Jordan Mailata will finally get his chance to prove if he is worthy of being in the NFL. This is will be a hot storyline in the Preseason should games be played. It seems though that Mailata has some competition. Prince Tena Wanagho was a three year starter at Auburn and many projected him to go in Rounds 3-4. It would not be surprising in the slightest to see Prince become the backup LT. Matt Pryor will sub in primarily at RG and RT. He has experience playing both positions and this team really values versatility in its depth. Pryor seemed to cut down his penalties last year which is a good sign. Jack Driscoll will be a floating OL. He has experience preparing to play Guard and Tackle. He also started practicing to play Center. The Eagles can try him a bunch of different places and see where he fits best. He’s like a better Nate Herbig.
Graham
Cox
Hargrave
Barnett
M. Jackson
Ridgeway
Sweat
Avery
S. Miller
34, The DL is stacked as usual. Hargrave will be a welcome edition to the line. Malik Jackson will be a floater as he could sub in and play any position on the line if anyone needs a breather. I’m excited for Hassan Ridgeway to return as he had a good year before being injured. Josh Sweat had 4 sacks in very limited playing time last year so I hope he sees an increase this year. Genard Avery is kept on the team mostly due to the team investing a draft pick in him (although he did flash in his debut). I believe there is one more spot for a DL. It will be an absolute battle for it if there is a camp this year. For DEs we have Casey Toohill, Shareef Miller, Daeshon Hall and Joe Ostman. For the DTs we have Anthony Rush, Bruce Hector and UDFA Raequan Williams. I think the Eagles would tend to go with an edge rusher here. I think Shareef Miller could have an edge over Toohill because he has a year of NFL experience and was okay last preseason as a 4th round pick. But, it’s still going to be an absolute battle and someone could have a Daeshon Hall like preseason and win the job. Speaking of Hall the primary reason I don’t have him making the roster is because he is coming off of an ACL injury and may miss all of camp with it.
Gerry
Edwards
J. Brown
Riley
Taylor
Bradley
40, Nate Gerry is a half decent weak side LB as he seems to have a nose for the ball. I believe TJ Edwards is underrated. I know PFF has its issues but he was graded at about an 87 last year which is really impressive for an UDFA. Hopefully he will given more time to shine this year. I was going back and forth on whether to include Jatavis Brown on the roster. My decision to include him in this projection stems from the fact that we almost always carry 6 LBs and also the LB group is young and some experience especially starting experience is very much needed. So he isn’t this year’s Corey Nelson or L.J. Fort quite yet. Duke Riley is a lock to make the team because he is important to Special Teams as he was captain when KGH was out last year. Daviyon Taylor is super athletic and can cover a ton of ground. He can also play safety and special teams. He is incredibly raw, but in a shallow LB field I see him seeing some time on defense. Bradley is tough and we could always use depth at LB and Special Teams.
Slay
Maddox
Robey-Coleman
Jones
LeBlanc
Douglas
46, I think Slay will he tasked to cover the best player on the field. We invested heavily in him to be a shutdown CB and that’s how I believe we will use him as we shift to a more man-to-man defense. Maddox and Jones could battle it out for CB2, but I see them possibly sharing the responsibility. Maybe Maddox can cover smaller faster guys and Jones could cover taller and more physical WRs. NRC is a huge addition to our secondary as we get a guy who is elite at covering the slot. CreVeon LeBlanc can play Special Teams and can fill in as a backup nickel CB. We couldn’t find a trade partner for Rasul Douglas. Depth and Special Teams is important to the CB position and Douglas’s sure tackling can be an asset on specials. He also is familiar with the system and playbook so he has an edge on UDFAs especially with no offseason program. I have to keep Douglas here until there are more whispers of a trade.
Mills
McLeod
Parks
K. Wallace
50, Jalen Mills will try and step up to fill a pseudo-Malcolm role. McLeod will return to his old role. Will Parks will be good to have as a third safety especially when it comes to making a tackle. K’Von Wallace has the potential to be a good in the box starting safety in the future. He is an absolute dog and has a killer mentality. I would not be surprised at all to see him earn significant playing time this year. Rudy Ford and Marcus Epps are going to be competing for roster spots as well. I believe Ford especially has a great shot to make the roster because of his speed which could be useful as a high safety.
Elliott
Johnston
Lovato
53, The Specialists are back and better than ever.
PUP
Jeffery
Alshon Jeffery could be left on the PUP as ensuring his health is paramount. He doesn’t seem to be big in the Eagles plans anyway.

Ddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddd… and that’s what you get nodding out on the keys. That warm glow washes over me. If the curtains were open this room would be filled with sunshine. I don’t think the curtans have been open since they wessssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddsddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddd…
The empty days were killing me. When Michele left, it wasn’t just me alone in the the house. It wasn’t just me alone. The waiting kicked in. It’s one of those things where effort is out of the question. Movement and action have been suspended. For some reason the sadness speaks to me. It tells a boring story. Time does not pass. I am beginning to hate Michele, and these days I want nothing but solitude. But she leaves and something inside me goes with her. I don’t understand it. There’s a list that could fit on this page, even after any amendments. It’s the simplest shit, and it all has to be done. I am done here, finished. Supposed to have left already. But the simplest tasks are beyond my capabilities at the moment. Pack shit. Ten hours community service. Stop begging M for dope. Really, get the fucking sickness out of the way before a two day train trip or whatever it’s gonna take to get from here to there. There. A thousand miles south in the heart of winter.
I should be looking forward to it. This would have been a great dream realized only a few short years ago. But those years have pumped my stomach. They took everything. Every hope, every passion, every fiber of muscle tissue, every vein, whatever courage and hope I possessed. The one relationship I might have made a life out of. The one woman who had really given a shit about me. They blinded me. They wasted the years she could have made a family. I wasted her years and now she’s worried about imaginary wrinkles. She doesn’t know she’s fucking beautiful. But it’s all past and each day is gone wasted. They left my overactive mind with one or two overactive and useless thoughts. Dope. Junk. Heroin. Every time Michelse laughs, or tries, or looks at me across the room. If I look back I get a sneer of disgust, or eyes rolling at my miserable pathetic state. Or a blatant warning to stop fucking staring at “what are you staring at, leave me the fuck alone. Get out of my room, get out of my sight.
I check the mail diligently for my w2’s. I think I worked two jobs on the books. I
I can’t remember. It seems like I can’t remember anything except this fucking persistent nagging thought I fucked up so bad. I shudder and grab my face. I fucked up EVERYTHING I fucked up fucking up. I fucked up every time I said we’d quit. I gave up. I stopped fucking, i stopped functioning. I stopped trying. The fuckking dishes are piled up in the sink. The one god danm thing she asks of me. To pick up after myself and do the god danemd dishes. She still picks up my clothes off the floor and cooks dinner every night. What the fuck happend. And there’s a stuffed animal in the PO box I took out and check a couple times a week. There’s another thing on the list. Close the box. I probably wont. Inside it are two bags of dope and for some reason an eightball of meth. I remember so vividly opening it. And then I don’t.
There are bruises on my face. So I tried to surprise Michele with a shot in the morning. After having stayed up all night. And of course I was eating more benzoz than I could count. So what could have been a pleasant day turned into Michele keeping me alive for whatever reason she has. To prolong my misery maybe. I could tell she took her anger out on me while unconscious - that’s where the bruises come from. My self made little life of self pity. In a house that Michele tried to make our home. Tried so hard to make us get along. She wrote that letter. It was a plea to stop being such a piece of shit. To PLEASE pick up after myself. I thought the dope would have killed her libido too, but it didn’t. She needed to be fucked and I don’t care anymore.
She doesn’t want my words, she never did. This little story will mean nothing. Because I’ve got nothing to back it up with. Look at this room. The filters been off for three days and the water in the fish tank is starting to turn grey. Another victim of my paranoia. Thinking people are in the house. Watching me. Laughing at me as a pace back and forth with a knife. One sock on maybe. I’m a lost cause. My father said it first and I was indignant at the time. He was right though. Some people disagreed with him, but in the end I don’t think so. No one came the first time I was psychotic. No one except the police, and of course that didn’t end well. They wanted to take me to the hospital, but OF COURSE they arrested me first. They tried so hard to find something and they did. A single pill I had a prescription for. Of course I still got arrested. Still had to get a letter from my dr and still had to go to court. Twice. Maybe that one got sorted out. But how about all the others. The shit i’m dealing with now. How much time has passed. How many court dates missed. How many second chances.
How many good intentions. My intentions good or bad, still unfulfilled. I might have sold my prescription to get some drugs. I just wanted to get laid before I leave. There are a couple of girls who would fuck me, but now I don’t even think I can. I was going to use the meth to Pack my shit and clean the place. Instead I spent night after night In bed thinking I Michele was either fucking clients with me in the bed. Or chronically masturbating with some kind of focused hate. So that when I touched her she flinched and pushed me away. Every night the room got darker. The windows creaked open and closed. Furtive footsteps ran across the floor. Somhoue never walking into anything that would make a sound clear enough to find them. The sounds of sirens and some kind of vibrations got louder and louder. Voices came through the floor. Whispers drifted in from the kitchen, announcing the party was open stupid shit the prices were slashed to match the slash. Whoever wanted to make a fool of me, fucking my former partner in my bed while I tried to sleep. Or pretened to sleep. But the voices got to me. The foot steps got to me. The flashes of light made me jump out of bed. I never got comfortable once, I never could fall asleep. The dawn came as it always does, and what little morning light filterned into the room just made me think of last call. Last call to humiliate a sucked up, weak looser who let everything go, and couldn’t grasp hold of a single god danmed intruder. I would have liked to kill thema lll on their own show. Fuck them. Fuck the announcer, to tear out the hole inthe floor I couldn’t find. Just a few facts I could see clearly turned into every fear and anxiety I had. The rope was out in the living room. There’s men's body wash in the shower that isn’t mine. So everything is against me. The cats respond to a laser pointer, but try as I might I can't find its source. There’s only one exit. The chain is still on the door. So it’s the windows, It has to be the windows. The old broken windows on the second floor. There’s only one spot they even go out to the roof, and in front of it the rat cage. Occasionally I would sit down to list the improbability of my senses. I KNEW I was delusional. But the FACTS were still there and I couldn’t get around them. Who showered in my fucking bathroom. Why is the rope strung across the floor. Why is the oven pulled out. Everything grew out of that. Why the fuck is the bed moving. I’m on meth but why isn’t michele sleeping anymore. Why is she pretetning to snore. And christ if I asked her I was just insane. Shut the fuck up. She’ll call the police. Shell have me out of here. What the fuck is going on.?????
I run from room to room. Up and down the stairs. Window to window. I don’t even find footprints. I find shadows whispering things satan himself wouldn’t think. Do I still love her or has jealous rage taken over completely. IF that’s it than what am I jealous of? You can’t trust a prostitute... If i Loved her I would have done the dishes. Right. RIGHT??? And she’s going out more and more and bringing home less and less. But why string me along? She cleans up and I sweat in the same clothes i’ve been wearing all winter. No wonder she doesn’t want to touch me. Maybe when she gets lonely we’ll cuddle, no that doesn’t make sense. None of it makes sense. But She’s never seen the shows she picks out, just the conversations on her phone. Who the fuck is she talking to?? Did you seee that michcle? Michele? WHAT???? I’m sorry, I say pathetically, I thought we were watching this show… We are now shut up.
Michele, what’s going on? What the fuck are you talking about Greg. Jesus, now I’m alone again. Maybe I can figure out what’s going on. But I can’t focus on anything. I can’t follow a single thread I find. Just trace my own footsteps from room to room. Feed the cats and run back to the kitchen. When’s the last time I drank any water? But the sound of the tap tears through the empty apartment. Echoing off all the malevolence I feel. I want to take the rats out, but I am so afraid that every time I pet them I’m going to sob harder on the way down south.
I think This was my bed, this was my room, this was my girl, but was it ever. Christ she used to stroke my hair when I got out of work until I fell asleep. But only when she was high, and I knew it but didn’t say anything; when she was high she was so loving and tender. She would do anything for me. Except the one thing I asked of her. And I had some fears. Some terrible fears that in the end all came true. And it was probably only because they were my fears and a I made them known.
And when I did say something I might have been wrong. And if I wasn’t it was just some stranger lying to me. Ready to fight, ready to leave me lying in a pool of self doubt and confusion. Because even with full clip of evidence I couldn’t shoot for shit. She absorbed evidence and could somehow distort the things I saw right in front of me. So I was awake too long, instead of sorting out my things into boxes, I just shuffled them around, trying to piece together what was going on. Something, but really I wasn’t even close to what. I’m still not. I’m still awake, and I'm still paranoid. Even though I’ve got plenty of benzos and no more meth. But the bed doesn’t vibrate it was. Therte’s no live streaming of my humiliation. Just two people in a bed, maybe asleep, maybe not. But why didn’t I just move to the living room with a blanket and a pillow? Because The sounds from the other room were just too much to take. I could put in earplugs and wrap the pillow around my head. Try to suffocate myself to sleep, but that didn’t stop the strangers in the house. That, and going in the other room would be giving in. I’m not giving in to this. It’s just psychosis…
Michele got so sick of me, but fucked up or not, I knew something was being hidden from me. WHY???? Well, I don’t know if she’s capable of being honest, even with herself. WHAT? I’ll never know. I need to be satisfied with that and let it go… that’s the hardest part. That’s what keeps me awake at night.
Michele went out. It was a sunday monday or tuesday. I was out of meth and now REALLY dope sick. I thought maybe I could do something productive and then sleep (the real psychosis). I had gotten four hours after begging a pittance of xanax off her and missing Community Service. But that four hours didn’t do it. Michcle went out. A snowstorm hit. I couldn’t read. I couldn’t eat. Couldn't clean. Just room to room to room to room with a knife or flashlight. And the voices got louder. I could hear Michele laugh at some degrading remark about myself, They were usually dead on, I would have laughed too. But how could I hear her. She was gone. Or was she in the basement?? Car parked around the corner.
They had the perfect cover. IF i fell asleep I would be out for at least 16 hours. Maybe a day. I knew they would bind my hands and feet first. I got under the blankets. I waited. So tired… so tired… as the world faded to that half black space the moment before sleep the window would open. I would hear them. Is he asleep. He’s asleep go creep. But I’d jump up too early leaving them room to escape. THAT MOTHERFUCKER MUST STILL BE USING OR HE”D BE ASLEEP BY NOW. FUCKER. // I WANT HIM OUT OF MY GODDAMN HOUSE ONE WAY OR ANOTHER // HE”LL BE GONE TONIGHT. FOREVER ///
And god-damn how many times did this scene repeat. I swear to christ I closed the dooors how did the cat get in the room. I am so desperately tired. They are waiting for me to go to sleep. We’re both so impatient. Every tiem I come close they come in. Why can’t they shut the fuck up and wait. I know what phycosis is. I know I am hallucinating. I know I am probably alone in the house. But there IS something dark going on. There is screamign coming from downstairs. There IS this frothing hatred toward me. It’s been AT LEAST three days since i’ve had meth and I’ve been awake long enough that I should be asleep staning up I still have no appetitie, and the voices I hear arent’ just echoes of untold sentiment. They are conversations between people I know and people I do not know about the best way to get rid of me. I am not scared, I want them to tcome I want someone to try just fucking TRY and end me. The storm is the perfect cover. Every time I try to sleep I hear them creeping in, and I cannot drift off. I have ideas, I have knowledge of what i’m supposed to do. But i’m wracked with guilt. Michele has been gone all day and the dishes are stillot done. Nothing is done. The place is a wrteck Christ that sliver of cotton M so generously gave me earlier didn’t do shit. But I’ve been awake so long……. The only thing keepping me awake at this point are the voices. The footsteps, the windows.
I attemtmpt to get up and do something but I cannot complete a task a simple as feeding the rats. Every time I get up I hear shean… “that lying motherfucker” “go the fuck to sleep” Even though I’m desperate, I don’t dare Look for the other half a benzo michele gave me earlier. Christ…….. ….. I don’t know what to do. I try to find sox and realize i Can’t even get a matchign pair. No matter how many times i take them all out of the box and put them back on.
A cigarette might calm me down… but there are no papers. And I have smoked every god danmed butt until it burnt my lips. I am begininning to think i need medical intervention. I don’t dare call an ambulance on myself. How selfish, in this storm, giving into the delusions. But there is NO reason I should not be able to sleep. The sound of sirens and screaming is overwhelming. It’s so loud it’s as if a klaxon is coming in through the stereo. I get dressed to go out. I try. I cannot manage to figure out the layering. I can only go down the steps once, and once I leave this house, I will not be coming back.
I think about what I need, but does it matter. Do I NEED anything from here. My passport is about to expire. I no longer consider myself a veterann, so my military papers are nul. I probably need my glasses, but every time I set them down I cannot find them again for at least ten minutes. Even in the same spot. I text Avery, I am afraid to speak out loud int he house. I know they can read my texts, it’s Michele’s phone service, after all, and I know they can hear me If i speak too loudly, the house is wired for their fucked up game show. I turn the fan all the way up and place the receiver by it. I call Avery and ask what I should do, but I have woken him up and I find myself incapable of fully explaining my thoughts. Of fullly forming them. I am so desperately thirsty but cannot drink. Everything is wrong. I need to get out. I remember Avery’s advice, and he speaks from experience, if your life is in danger, get out. I replied there was a blizzard! Ha hahaha. Making excuses for everything, oh I let myself be tortured and raped to death to make someone I only know as a distorted voice and the as strange as sudden master of Michele. But whatever if the voice is a client or a procurer, it’s irrelevant… as long as I am this stranger’s business opportunity, carefully groomed to the most apathetic point in my life. Weak, exhausted, underweight, confused. So even if I was somehow caught on my guard and fought back it wouldn’t be more than theatre. Two or maybe even a single man as physically large as overconfident and wannabe sadistic, with a set of zipties and a blunt object could probably do a number on me in this state… I pick up the knife and put it down. God danm I wish they would just do it. So fucking tired… so fucking tired…
“COME GET ME MOTHERFUCKERS… ”YOUR FAKE MASTER HAS TO WAIT FOR ME TO SLEEP.” I know there are cameras and microphones in the room, who knows where, who cares, I put up a finger... Maybe I’m TOTALLY out of it, but if not then FUCK YOU ALL….
But I know the sirens aren’t real, i know the Billy the 90 year old neighbor isn’t out snowblowing at 2am…. I KNOW i’m hallucinating, but I guess I don’t know I’m delusional. I know I can’t trust my senses, but I don’t remember ever experiencing persecution (didn’t even have a word for it at the time)... and the facts add up to this. The Land Lord wants me out, M. wants me out… with gusto, with malice, and maybe not just out but gone and not coming back. Unable to return… after getting rid of a body getting rid of my shit would be nothing…. I lay back down on the bed, cover my feet with the blanket… The auditory hallucinations are LOUD and I know it. Sirens, screaming, snowblowers, angry neighbors maybe… I can deal with that. The wind is real.
Darkness descends over me… then the window creaks open… the whispers begin again… “He’s asleep, he’s asleep, go now, keep low to the ground... “His eyes are open... “Fucker. He’s still using. I KNEW it I KNEW IT… “No, he’s not moving, he’s out… “Yeah he’s sleeping “Just go…” Two of these voices I know. They’re so specific. So close and conspiring. And unlike the sounds I know are products of sleep deprivation, they do not repeat. They don’t reverberate. They aren’t impossibly loud or close, but come from exactly where they might. They are persistent and planning. Impatient, yet amused. As I lay still they move toward their objective. Time passes between a single footstep and the creak of the floor. Someone is crouching as they approach the corner. My eyes flicker. I try to assimilate the sudden silence, but it’s too much for me to take.
The sliver of chance has lodged itself in my brain as painfully as under my thumbnail. That a group of people have the opportunity and means to murder me for a snuff film. And curiosity propels some of my thoughts, I feel a vibration through the mattress as I wonder about who they would market this to. How do they distribute. How dark does the world of Heidie get, and are those Sean's connections? Where did Michele find these people, how did they conspire this together? Where the fuck did the body wash come from? But above all that alarms are going off in my mind. Not outside of it. Something is wrong, I jolt upright, scanning the single light I left on for shadows.
My fight or flight response will not stop flashing on. I want to fight, but fear of patience putting me to sleep gives away my affect, the threat retreats. And this repeats, each time I find it impossible to get comfortable, when my eyes close on my arm I hyperfocus on the sounds, the increasingly irritated conversations mocking me, proud of themselves for planning an end to my depravity. A week is too long to wait for me to leave, and the opportunity to fuck eachother in front of death adds too much credibility to their business. The fetishists will flow in. How this makes money I cannot put together but I can feel their greed.
I am desperate to sleep I almost don’t care, but I can’t quite let go of everything, completely blind to the fact delirium tremens is what’s really keeping me from sleep. I jolt awake again, set down the knife, and decide I need to leave.
I know I am never coming back to this apartment. This place I failed and the people in it. But leaving is not as easy as it seems. THEY don’t know the decision I’ve made. Just that I am up again and I hear them assume I have been using the entire time. “But how?” They snap at each other. “Did you SEE him.” Their irritated. “It’s not like he’s been in the bathroom for more than a minute.”
These conversations I hear are far too complex, but I don’t consider where I’m hearing them from. Though, it’s no hallucination, stimulant overdose causes x-men level superpower hearing. I assume it’s through the floor, and they are in the apartment downstairs. Occasionally they seem to get off on my confusion, and I hear vague demands and a woman being dragged by a leash… An admiring voice. This shit is bizarre. Why, I wonder in fear, is this the tack of my delusion. I am to be the victim of a snuff film, how fucking stupid. But there’s always a chance. However

2020.02.06 15:59 ND_PC The r/MtvChallenge Fantasy Tournament: Redemption House - Day 14 (Round Two)

It’s the second round of the MtvChallenge redemption house, losers! This is where the stakes get even higher for the official Fantasy League™ and for us as well. While in our first round, all teams had records of 0-1 (pffft, scrubs), this is the round where teams must have actually mustered a win in order to compete. All teams in this round are 1-1, so congrats to everyone for being perfectly mediocre at what we do. How exciting! Join us as losers continue to battle head-to-head to fight for redemption, coming back from embarrassing losses, terrifying finals, and (supposed) voter insanity. While you won’t enter back into the Winner’s Bracket, you may just find yourself the Ruler of Redemption.
Before we get to the voting, let’s recap last night’s fantasy draft match-ups. (Recaps today courtesy of u/MandyMTV!)
Real World Bracket
This might have been my favorite match-up in the entire Fantasy Tournament/Redemption House saga, considering the teams with the worst total player compositions went head to head. You have Shane, Sean, and Camila on one side, and Kenny and Tonya working together on the other. I’m utterly confused as to why this wasn’t a 0 - 0 tie, because there is no way on God’s green earth that any of these teams would cross the finish line.
u/mthompson22599’s accurately-named team, “I’m Sorry I Picked Both Tonya and Kenny,” wins this round, which is quite the shame - Camila is a mother-to-be, after all, and she could have used the prize money for all of the diapers and baby food and therapy her new mini-me will need. Just picture it: Camila, screaming and raging on the phone to her baby daddy. Wait - we don’t have to picture it! We already have a real-life representation. Let’s be real, though: we all know Camila will actually get a live-in nanny. Camila’s reaction to changing a diaper will probably be identical to her reaction when eating a pepper on the Spring Break Challenge.
Honestly, though, this will give Camila the break she needs to go home and focus on the things that really matter: speech therapy. She’s from Massachusetts, bitch! She doesn’t have an accent, she has a speech impediment, bitch! She has to get that taken care of, ya know? Plus, Camila thinks Bob Marley is a playboy bunny, so she’s got bigger things to worry about.
See ya next time, u/WhitneyAhn! Congratulations, u/mthompson22599!
Road Rules Bracket
In a close match, u/Delado99 takes out u/ToastyPuff4real’s “Mentally? Bums,” which is completely devastating because that means my jokes about Brad have to end - next round. However, this round, Brad was the reason his team lost. I’m sure of it.
This is how I see it going down: somehow, some way, Rogan orders pizza during the final, as one does. Rogan shares with everyone, but takes the last slice. Brad’s upset. Get gangster about it, Rogan. Brad doesn’t care. He would never be that selfish. It’s not about ice cream or pizza. It’s about people and respecting people in general, for the greater good of everybody. It’s called community. Think about that. Marinate on that. Get back to me.
Brad gets irate. Congratulations, Rogan, you’re a meathead, son. But, you know what? Don’t ever put your fucking hands on his underwear pizza - ever. And that, my friends, is the end of Brad and his crazy eyes.
Combine Brad’s anger with Kailah’s stupidity - her brain is scrambled like eggs, y’all - and that whole team is going down in flames.
Congratulations on having jokers on your team who can order a mean pizza, u/Gelado99!
Now, let’s get to voting!
Real World Bracket
Match: u/NovaRogue’s “Bitches Get Stuff Done” vs. u/honestkodaline and u/priorsloth’s “Adore Delano 2020”
Final: Battle of the Sexes
Editorial: OMG is this really the matchup? I’m gonna cry.
Teams
u/NovaRogue “Bitches Get Stuff Done”
[u/honestkodaline, u/priorsloth] “Adore Delano 2020”
Winner’s Logic
u/NovaRogue’s “Bitches Get Stuff Done”
  1. Rachel R was the winner of 4 dailies and the final on The Duel II, and finished it before any of the dudes. She also won Gauntlet 1 and made the final on Inferno 2. Endurance for days. No glaring weaknesses. She has a brain on her too - she won the spelling daily on Duel 2, alongside Evan.
  2. Ruthie was the leader of the Women on Sexes 1. She was in the Inner Circle every week after the first daily, had the highest cumulative score for the women (and more points than any man outside the Top 3), and got first in 2 dailies, including a shockingly impressive performance in the last daily, Maximum Velocity, winning cars for her whole team. No glaring weaknesses besides pure size, which shouldn’t come into play during a final. Great swimmer and kind leader and team player. Also made it deep on Sexes 2, being eliminated right before the elimination. Won the Royal Rumble on Gauntlet 2 and was only eliminated because she went against Beth in a weight-based elimination.
  3. Jamie M won every wingle season he appeared on. A 3-time champion. Was in the Inner Circle for every except one on Sexes 1, won 2 dailies, and won the final. Was tied for the 3rd best man on the Rookies on Gauntlet 2 outside of Alton and Landon. Truly a great competitor all-around.
  4. MJ tied with Jamie for the 3rd best man on the Rookies on Gauntlet 2, which he won with JAmie. They have proved they can work together. Won 2 eliminations and made it deep on Duel 2, being eliminated right before the final elimination
[u/honestkodaline, u/priorsloth] “Adore Delano 2020”
  1. Other than strong competitors our teams biggest strength is that there is a clear alpha leader (Ev), and the other three are team players that will follow a strong competitor.
  2. EVELYN SMITH WON A SIMILAR FINAL, on Rivals 1! Not only did she win this final, but she did it with Paula. They beat Laurel and Cara Maria who would easily win anything you threw at them today. We know this wasn’t because Paula is a powerhouse, it was literally ALL on Ev. I don’t need to say much more because Ev is iconic, she won 3 seasons, and any true Challenge fan knows her résumé. Game, set, match bitch.
  3. Cohutta may not have a win yet, and he may be on the smaller side of the men, but he is brilliant. He makes the challenges work for him. During this season, Free Agents, he showed incredible agility being one of three people to make it across the rolling log during the first challenge. In the second daily he was partnered with Laurel, and of course they won, but neither could’ve done it without the other. On the third challenge he lead a team of Nany, Latoya and Preston across the bar crawl (sliding two bars under a wall suspended above water) when teams that had Jordan, CT, and Cara couldn’t even make it across! Free Agents was Cohutta’s best run and he finished in 6th place. This season showed us that Cohutta can work on a team with ANYONE and perform above average.
  4. Ashley Kelsey kickboxes. She solves puzzles. She stands up for Sam (well, halfheartedly, but she did at one point stand up for Sam, at least once, in her own way). She dated Dario, and we don't judge her for that. She won her first season. She lost her second season to Cara, but didn't she look cute while doing it?
  5. Ace Amerson invented the trash can punch. He hooked up with Tonya. He was on Team Good Guys on Inferno 3, because he is a good guy. In real life, he rides a lot of 4-wheelers and has a cute dog. He'll listen to Evelyn's orders. He'll be a supportive teammate and friend to all, except Derrick.
  6. Our team is a lean, mean machine - heavy on the lean. We run. We think critically (well, Evelyn does). We fight (well, Evelyn does). We get shit done... well, you get the point.
Battle of the Sexes Final Description - thanks to u/RohAnTheMaker for the great description!
This final will test balance, agility, brains and teamwork. Three main parts where all team members must complete each stage together:
  1. Tri-Ski Slalom - Each member gets on the same two skis and walk as a unit (similar to a three-legged race) across a beach and ovearound obstacles.
  2. Block by Block Brain Teaser - A puzzle where they are assembling blocks of different shapes into a specific shape, similar to the puzzle at the start of Rivals II
  3. PoleCat (Rope Course) - Must climb a rope net to a section where you take planks and connect from pole to pole to create a bridge across a series poles.
  4. Then each person ziplines to a section where they walked a tightrope. After they zipline into the water, each member swims to a flag and races to the finish line on the beach.
Road Rules Bracket
Match: u/SwitchStop's "Mr. Beautiful and the Drowners" vs. u/willtwerkf0rfood
Final: Battle of the Sexes II
Teams
[u/Switchstop] "Mr. Beautiful and the Drowners"
[u/willtwerkf0rfood]
Winner’s Logic
u/Switchstop "Mr. Beautiful and the Drowners"
  1. Self proclaimed ""Mr. Beautiful"", Kenny Santucci has planted himself as one of the all time greats of Challenge history. With 3 wins (technically 4 including The Gauntlet 3) and 7 finals under his belt, there is only 1 season that he did not make it to a final. That season, The Duel, had one of the most challenging and star-studded casts in Challenge history. Kenny has won a total of 35 dailies across 8 seasons, won 5 out of 6 eliminations, and amassed a total of $235,970. One of the greatest puzzlers of all time, the unending endurance through multiple finals and strengths all across the board shows that this man has what it takes. Also literally carried the GOAT Wes through Rivals.
  2. Leroy is a bit of surprising pick I'm sure. Looking at his overall stats, out of 11 appearances, he's only made the final 4 times, and has 0 wins. The unfortunate truth is that Leroy has the absolute worst luck when it comes to partners. On the plus side, this is coming after the PRIME Leroy that I chose. In Battle of the Exes 2, Leroy was in peak performance mode. They may have only won 1 daily, but after going into eliminations 4 times, he and Nia got the job done. Going against some of the greats, they took down Johnny Reilly and Avery, Wes and Theresa, and Bananas and Nany. Then after being paired with Theresa, they finished off Bananas and Nany AGAIN to stop them from making the final. As one of the only players to ever compete and win 4 eliminations in a single season, Leroy can hold it down as much as anyone.
  3. While my two previous competitors should be household names, we'll flip the switch by introducing a fresh face with only 2 seasons under her belt. Natalie ""Ninja"" Duran is a small yet feisty ball of competition. During War of the Worlds 1, Natalie managed to pull off 4 daily wins, an elimination win, and managed to be the only female left standing by the end of the final. She bested the strong Mattie, the durable Georgia, and the all time great Cara Maria during the final 2 day ""Death Path"" which is regarded as the hardest final in challenge history. Whether it's strength, endurance, puzzling, or running a ropes course, she's shown she's more than capable to provide what it takes to make this team compete.
  4. The oft-forgot Sam Mcginn completes the team. Sam has made only 1 appearance on The Challenge, during Battle of the Seasons II. During this season, her and her San Diego co -competitors managed to slide their way into a final, and an eventual win. Winning 4 dailies, and pulling off 2 elimination wins, Sam definitely held her own. The unfortunate side of things is how poorly she was treated on this season. Throughout the entire season, Sam was berated and belittled by Zach and Frank every chance they got. Everyone knows that there is no use in putting people down when running a competition, so I have no doubt that this team here will have nothing but support for Sam. Give her what she needs to run these finals and make another run. One of the forgotten "One and Done" competitors of The Challenge decides to give this one more go.
[u/willtwerkf0rfood] - I, u/ND_PC, was kind enough to provide mostly serious write-ups for this user who will shake their derriere rapidly for digestive sustenance.
  1. Landon Lueck - Oh, you’re a “””young viewer””” of the Challenge and you have “””only watched since Vendettas””” ??? Well if people of your generation need a reason to vote for Landon, then you should know that he was on the same season of The Real World as Karamo from Netflix’s Queer Eye. For those of us who have actually seen Landon on The Challenge, we already know that he’s by all accounts a top-5 male challenger (or better) of all time. While not the optimal political player, Landon is excellent at dailies and, luckily for the sake of this tournament, excellent at finals, too. He is physically dominant and ultra competitive, but in a healthy way. He was only on four seasons but his competitors barely stood a chance.
  2. Svetlana Shusterman sort of has… the same profile as Landon? No, stay with me here: she’s not a great politician, but she has a healthy sense of competition and was pretty formidable. She was a one-season wonder with a second-place finish and she never backed down from a challenge. Okay, so she wasn’t as dominant as Landon (except she certainly excelled in swimming), and her sample size is much smaller, but she was a good teammate and she was physically very tough. She more than held her own during her tenure, and although she doesn’t find herself on any Top-10 female competitor lists today, her heart and her fight would make her much more of an asset than a liability.
  3. Jamie Chung, another one-season wonder, is a highly entertaining champion. How entertaining? She actually married an actor from One Tree Hill, and began a career as an actress herself. She played Mulan on Once Upon a Time, which my college roommate loved but never successfully convinced me to watch. But she was also in The Hangover Part II and Part III! As far as her Challenge strengths, she was fairly athletic, she had a lot of friends in the house, and she was on a team called the “Good Guys.” She could be a secret weapon on a four-person final team for sure.
  4. Ryan Knight’s ex-girlfriend Jemmye donated all of his clothes after they broke up. Poor Knight. Listen, he had an up-and-down personality, and competitively he got stuck with average to weak teammates (Preston, Jemmye, McKenzie). He was a high-level amateur hockey player before sustaining an injury, so he was athletically competent enough to succeed at physical challenges. He was also low-key super into the game for its own sake. He wanted to go into elimination against Bananas like it was no biggie. People seemed to like his energy in the house. He’s a good teammate and would probably complement his teammates’ strengths well here.

2020.02.02 17:04 washingmachineRIP Looking for more CC music by black artists

Guess Black History Month is a good a time to ask this as any, I've been looking for Creative Commons music by black artists, musicians, etc. Please respond with any artists/albums/songs you know of.
(I prefer remixable stuff, you can list No Derivatives stuff too but please mark it as such if it isn't too much trouble.)

2020.01.01 05:05 kungming2 2019 r/Choices Community Survey Results (2 of 3): LIs

This is the second of three posts with responses from our second annual 2019 community survey. This part is on questions and answers about LIs, including popularity, etc.
Please remember that what you're seeing are just opinions! You're free to agree or disagree.
(Note: You can see all the responses here) We had 1601 responses.
Also note: Answers have NOT been edited for spoilers. Please proceed at your own risk.
There are too many free-form answers overall, so what we do is present both aggregate data and a selection of free-form answers as well.

Overall

Favorite LI

I think people who follow the top flairs list that is posted every Saturday probably won't be surprised. For those with first mention, though, it was King Liam (130) and Damien way in the lead with 127, followed by Beckett (77), Jake (76).

Answers

Least Favorite LI

Lots of answers for "All the LIs in PTR" which would probably be the top result, but for individual ones on first mention, we had way in front, "Justin" from StD with 132+! I wonder if anybody has changed their mind since then.
No one else really came close. Ethan and Nate (53), Elliot (49), Drake and Nick (33), Chris (31), Kaitlyn (28), Beckett (27).

Answers

LI You Came to Like/Dislike

Beckett was a frequent topic of discussion, for both ways, and for every LI whom people grew to like, there also seems to have been a good amount the other way.

Approach

On a scale from 1-5, on how would you describe your approach towards going after LIs in stories, with 1 being "chaste" and 5 being "thirsty", the average across all answers was 3.86.

Multiple LIs

On a scale from 1-5, on how would you describe your attitude towards going after multiple LIs, with 1 being "monoamory" and 5 being "polyamory", the average across all answers was 2.51.

Most Wanted Non-official LI

The majority of suggestions here are female characters, possibly as a reflection of the relative dearth of female LIs. As last year, the top character was Olivia at 189+ mentions. No surprise there. Number two was Sienna (70+), way more than the ones after!
Other popular ones included at first mention Bianca (31), Slater (25), Courtney (24), Michelle (22), Dan (21), Everett (19), Aurora (16), Priya (15), Addison (14)

2019.11.21 23:07 theinvinciblemess Potions 11/21

With a busy day ahead, Caroline had spent most of last night and this morning putting the finishing touches on today's lessons. While it wasn’t the first double lesson of the semester, she always dreaded putting together the p[lans for them, even when she was a student, and a student who really enjoyed potions at that, she didn’t really enjoy double lessons so much, they seemed to drag on forever. So, she tried to put as much into the lessons as she could to keep the students busy in hopes that they would forget how long the class was.

1st & 2nd Years

As the younger students file in, Professor MacKenny is still flitting about the room getting everything ready, putting away papers, propping open the door to the supply closet, scribbling something on the back of a chalkboard. By the time everyone is seated, she’s nearly ready, and greets everyone with a smile.
“We’ve got a lot to get done today, so hopefully this double lesson will just fly right by. We’ll have a lecture and some brewing practice, a quiz, and then you’ll be having a little brewing competition, which I will explain once we get to it. But first, the lecture.” She says with a nervous smile, summoning over the rolling blackboard.
“Today we will be learning about the Forgetfulness Potion. The effects as I’m sure you can guess, will make the drinker forget. The amount of memory loss to the drinker can vary, and while it isn’t specifically linked to the amount that has been consumed, many experts have determined that to at least be a factor.”
“There are four main ingredients to this potion, one of them being Standard Ingredient, which is just a collection of herbs that we use quite frequently in class. But can anyone name the other three main ingredients?” She calls on students one at a time until all three correct answers have been given, and awards each correct answer with 5 House Points.
After each ingredient has been given, she gives a small explanation of the ingredients and their use in the potion.
After Lethe River Water has been given as an answer. “The name for this ingredient is pretty self explanatory. Even by itself it can cause memory loss, and is why it was chosen as an ingredient for this potion.”
After Valerian Springs have been given as an answer. “This is used in multiple other potions that will be covered in your time here at Hogwarts, including the Draught of Living Death, the Draught of Peace, and the Sleeping Draught. And for those of you who enjoy treacle tarts, it’s an ingredient in there as well.”
After Mistletoe Berries have been given as an answer. “We’ve used this before, last term in the Antidote to Common Poisons, so I’ll just give a quick refresher. The leaves are incredibly toxic, but the berry itself is relatively safe, as long as it’s not eaten in large quantities.”
“The brewing instructions are on the board. First years, you can brew this alone if you feel comfortable doing so, or you may find a partner. Second years, please brew independently. Leave a sample on my desk after you’ve finished, and please get my attention if you’re having trouble. I will let you know when you should be wrapping up so that we can begin the quiz.” As the students being, Professor MacKenny walks around the room to watch the students work.
Forgetfulness Potion Brewing Instructions;
  1. Add 2 drops of Lethe River Water to your cauldron
  2. Gently heat for 20 seconds
  3. Add 2 Valerian sprigs to your cauldron
  4. Stir 3 times, clockwise
  5. Wave your wand
  6. Add 2 measures of Standard Ingredient to the mortar
  7. Add 4 mistletoe berries to the mortar
  8. Crush into a medium-fine powder using the pestle
  9. Add 2 pinches of the crushed mixture to your cauldron
  10. Stir 5 times, anti-clockwise
  11. Wave your wand to complete the potion
After everyone has finished up with their potions, Professor MacKenny has everyone return to their seats and do a quick clean up of their stations.
“Alright, now it’s time for a short quiz- only 5 questions, and worth 10 points. If you score 8 or more points, you will earn 5 points for your house. After you are finished with your quiz, you may turn it in, and then get started right away on the brewing assignment.”
“I was told by your former professor that she frequently had these little competitions among year groups, So I figured I would give it a try and see how it goes. The rules will be as follows; You will work on your own to brew a potion for me, you may use your book and your notes, but you can not ask your classmates for help. The student who brews the best potion for each year will receive 10 house points. Your assignments are written on the board, good luck!”
The board reads;
Brewing Competition Assignments;
  • 1st Years - Cure for Boils
  • 2nd Years - Basic Sleeping Draught
When the class finally comes to an end, Professor MacKenny comes around and collects everyone’s potion samples, and dismisses everyone with a small smile. “I’ll have the results of the competition posted in a few days, enjoy the rest of your day!”
>>>QUIZ HERE<<<

3rd, 4th, 5th Years

As the class files in, Professor MacKenny is still walking about the room making sure everything has been properly cleaned from her lessons that morning with the younger kids. By the time everyone is seated, she’s nearly ready, and greets everyone with a smile.
“We’ve got a lot to get done today, so hopefully this double lesson will just fly right by. We’ll have a lecture and some brewing practice, a quiz, and then you’ll be having a little brewing competition, which I will explain once we get to it. But first, the lecture.” She says, summoning over the rolling blackboard.
“Today you will have the opportunity to brew a Befuddlement Draught. As one can assume by the name, the drinking of this potion will cause the person to become confused, belligerent and reckless. It is quite similar to a Confusing Draught, in the fact that it uses almost all the same ingredients.” “What are the three main ingredients of the Befuddlement Draught?” She calls on students one at a time until all three correct answers have been given, and awards each correct answer with 5 House Points, and explains each ingredient after it is given. After Scurvy Grass has been given as an answer. “This typically grows in salt marshes along the seashore in northern and western Europe and Great Britain. It has a very high vitamin C content, which means that it could be used to cure or prevent scurvy, hence the name.”
After Lovage has been given as an answer. “It’s quite similar in appearance and texture to celery, and aside from causing inflammation in the brain, also has been used in herbal medicine for centuries to help aid digestion.”
After Sneezewort has been given as an answer. “Now this is is quite poisonous to livestock, but harmless to humans.”
“All three of these are ingredients that are very effective at causing the brain to become inflamed, which leaves the person in question hot-headed and reckless- which is why they are used in potions such as these.” She goes into more detail about the ingredients, the brewing process, etc, before the brewing instructions appear on the board. “Please don’t forget to leave a sample with your name on it on my desk before you leave. You may begin.” The wiki is super vague/basic with the recipe, so I’m taking some OOC liberties to make it more fun for me/rp-able for you all. None of the below is canon and will not be on any tests or quizzes.
Befuddlement Draught Brewing Instructions;
  1. Gently heat your cauldron for 30 seconds
  2. Add 3 Bundles of Scurvy Grass
  3. Stir until texture of Scurvy Grass becomes soft and pliable
  4. Slice Loveage into ¼ inch pieces
  5. Add 4 measures of Lovage to your cauldron
  6. Stir 3 times, anti-clockwise
  7. Wave your wand over the potion
  8. Add Sneezewort into mortar, crush into paste
  9. Add 1 measure of Sneezewort paste to your cauldron
  10. Stir 5 times, clockwise
  11. Stir 6 times, anti-clockwise
  12. Wave your wand to complete the potion
After everyone has finished up with their potions, Professor MacKenny has everyone return to their seats and do a quick clean up of their stations.
“Alright, now it’s time for a short quiz- only 5 questions, and worth 10 points. If you score 8 or more points, you will earn 5 points for your house. After you are finished with your quiz, you may turn it in, and then get started right away on the brewing assignment.”
“I was told by your former professor that she frequently had these little competitions among year groups, So I figured I would give it a try and see how it goes. The rules will be as follows; You will work on your own to brew a potion for me, you may use your book and your notes, but you can not ask your classmates for help. The student who brews the best potion for each year will receive 10 house points. Your assignments are written on the board, good luck!”
The board reads;
Brewing Competition Assignments;
  • 3rd Years - Antidote to Uncommon Poisons
  • 4th Years - Shrinking Solution
  • 5th Years - Volubilis Potion
When the class finally comes to an end, Professor MacKenny comes around and collects everyone’s potion samples, and dismisses everyone with a small smile. “I’ll have the results of the competition posted in a few days, enjoy the rest of your day!”
>>>QUIZ HERE<<<

6th & 7th Years

As the N.E.W.T. students file in, Professor MacKenny is sitting at her desk, finishing up her lunch. By the time everyone is seated, she’s finished, tossing the remnants of her foor into a trash can beside her desk.
“We’ve got a lot to get done today, so hopefully this double lesson will just fly right by. We’ll have a lecture and some brewing practice, a quiz, and then you’ll be having a little brewing competition, which you should be familiar with from your last Professor, but I will explain it again once we get to it. But first, the lecture.” She says with a small smile, summoning over the rolling blackboard.
While the blackboard slides into place, Professor MacKenny walks over to her desk and picks up a glass flask full to the brim with a bright green liquid before she addresses the students. “Today, you all will be brewing for me, an ageing potion. I’ll also be giving you a visual demonstration of the potion. Simple as it sounds, the ageing potion- ages you. It’s only temporary, and the amount you age depends on how much of the potion you drink.” She uncorks the flask, and drinks the ageing potion inside rather quickly. And then, before the students eyes, she visibly begins to age. After a full minute, it seems the changes begin to stop, and Professor MacKenny now appearing much older, begins to speak again. “Now, this potion should last about an hour- like I mentioned, it’s only a temporary potion.”
“Ingredients for this brew include pomegranate juice, honeywater, dandelion root, wormwood essence, bat blood, and caterpillars. When completed, it should be a darker green in colour, as you saw. If you have any questions, please come find me. The instructions are up on the board. Sixth years, you have the option to pair up or work individually, seventh years, please brew independently. You may begin when you’re ready.” Professor MacKenny then begins her usual rounds around the room to check on everyone’s progress.
Ageing Potion Brewing Instructions;
  1. Pour 8 ounces of honeywater, and 12 ounces of pomegranate juice into your cauldron.
  2. Stir clockwise 6 times.
  3. Heat on high until contents begin to boil.
  4. Mash 7 dandelion roots in mortar, then add 5 measures to your cauldron.
  5. Stir anticlockwise 12 times.
  6. Leave your potion to brew on medium heat for 8 minutes.
  7. Stir clockwise 3 times
  8. Slice 3 caterpillars and leave them to soak in 8 ounces of bats blood for 5 minutes.
  9. Add the blood soaked caterpillars to your mortar.
  10. Finely chop 3 dandelion roots, add them to your mortar.
  11. Vigorously mash caterpillars and dandelion roots for 2 minutes.
  12. Add 7 measures of mixture to cauldron.
  13. Stir clockwise 14 times.
  14. Add 6 ounces of honeywater, bring potion back to a boil.
  15. Stir anticlockwise 3 times.
  16. Let potion boil for 5 minutes.
  17. Turn off heat, and wave your wand over the potion in a circular fashion.
After everyone has finished up with their potions, Professor MacKenny has everyone return to their seats and do a quick clean up of their stations.
“Alright, now it’s time for a short quiz- only 5 questions, and worth 10 points. If you score 8 or more points, you will earn 5 points for your house. After you are finished with your quiz, you may turn it in, and then get started right away on the brewing assignment.”
“I was told by your former professor that she frequently had these little competitions among year groups, So I figured I would give it a try and see how it goes. The rules will be as follows; You will work on your own to brew a potion for me, you may use your book and your notes, but you can not ask your classmates for help. The student who brews the best potion for each year will receive 10 house points. Your assignments are written on the board, good luck!”
The board reads;
Brewing Competition Assignments;
  • 6th Years - Elixir to Induce Euphoria
  • 7th Years - Draught of Living Death
When the class finally comes to an end, Professor MacKenny comes around and collects everyone’s potion samples, and dismisses everyone with a small smile. “I’ll have the results of the competition posted in a few days, enjoy the rest of your day!”

2019.10.30 01:59 justwaityoullsee Wow! Wouldn't put it past tlc to do something like that! They've been caught in so many other lies, that this is getting seriously ridiculous..

’90 Day Fiance’: Avery Mills and Omar’s Visa Petition Approved – Did TLC Ask Lawyer To Lie? Jessica Almeida Avery Mills, Omar Albakkour 90 Day Fiance: Before The 90 Days couple Avery Mills and Omar Albakkour got the approval of the first step towards the spousal visa. According to a post made by Avery’s mom, Teri Mills, the couple will be moving forward with bringing Omar to America. Even though an immigration lawyer said that it was going to be next to impossible. Did producers have the lawyer tell Avery devastating news to create a cliffhanger for viewers?
90 Day Fiance – Omar Albakkour and Avery Mills File For Relative Visa Avery Mills was afraid that she was never going to be able to live with her husband Omar Albakkour in America. However, it seems like Omar could be making his way to America after all. Instead of filing for a K1 visa (a fiance visa), the 90 Day Fiance reality couple filed for a Petition for Alien Relative. Because Avery Mills is now Omar’s wife, Omar has family in America and that can be his way to immigrate to the United States. While other immigration visas, like the K1, have a limited number that are given out each year, there is no limit on this type of visa, so it increased Omar’s chances of getting approved.
According to the 90 Day Fiance: Before The 90 Days reality star’s mom, Avery Mills and hubby Omar Albakkour got their petition approved. Teri Mills posted a picture of the approval on social media. The picture included the approved petition to get Omar to move to America. Teri captioned the picture, “looking like I will have an amazing son in law in the US much sooner than we thought!”
TLC Couple Have Long Road Ahead The approval of Avery Mills and her Syrian spouse Omar Albakkour’s visa petition happened fairly quick. Although, the 90 Day Fiance pair still have a long way to go for Omar to get his green card. The petition approval is only the first step. Omar’s application still has to go through a process.
While his application is still processing, Omar must live in a country that has a US Embassy. But, the Embassy in Syria is no longer open due to dangerous conditions. However, the Czech Republic Embassy in Damascus Syria is handling a limited number of duties for the US interests. These duties include passport applications, notary services, and reports for births abroad. So it’s unlikely this could be an option for Omar.
The 90 Day Fiance: Before The 90 Days couple could be living apart from each other for up to a year. The processing time depends on the relationship between the petitioner and the beneficiary. The approval for immediate relatives to get their green card can take around 5 to 12 months after filing. If approved.
Did TLC Set Up Lawyer? As seen on the show, Avery Mills went to see an immigration attorney to find out what her options are for bringing Omar Albakkour to America. Unfortunately, Avery got the bad news that it would be hard for him to move to the states. Due to the travel ban, there would be a five percent chance that they would approve his application and said it was almost impossible. Although, now it seems like TLC may have found a lawyer that would give Avery only bad news.
Soap Dirt talked to an immigration lawyer that had previously filmed for TLC’s 90 Day Fiance. His footage was not shown on 90 Day Fiance. Why? Because he gave the couple good news. The producers had the couple later meet with another lawyer that gave them bad news. This tactic adds drama and makes for better television viewing.
On 90 Day Fiance: Before The 90 Days as Avery Mills is told she may never be able to be with her husband in America. Knowing that this is not the case, it looks like TLC encouraged the lawyer to tell Avery the worst-case scenario. This way it would create drama and leave the fans with a great cliffhanger. It seems there is a chance Avery and Omar will be able to have their happily ever after.
Catch part two of the 90 Day Fiance: The Couples Tell-All tonight at 8 pm only on TLC.
Come back to Soap Dirt daily for all the latest 90 Day Fiance updates.

2017.10.19 16:45 hockeytalkie Three Easy Steps To Loving Gary Bettman

Gary Bettman is easily one of the most reviled figures in the sport of hockey. Don’t take it from me, take it from the thousands of fans who boo his every public appearance. Compared to Bettman, Sean Avery is a cherished fan favourite. However, it is my contention that most of the hatred aimed at Commissioner Bettman is the result of an inherent misunderstanding about the man’s role within the league, and that once said misunderstanding is cleared up, there’s a chance that one might actually find themselves a fan of the man they call Buttman. That leads us to Three Easy Steps To Loving Gary Bettman.

Step One: Realize What His Actual Role Is

As an NHL Commissioner, Gary Bettman is truly unique—he’s the only person to hold that title in league history. Before him, the league was normally run by a President. The NHL’s constitution describes the role of the commissioner as, “6.1 Office of Commissioner, Election and Term of Office: The League shall employ a Commissioner selected by the Board of Governors. The Commissioner shall serve as the Chief Executive Officer of the League and is charged with protecting the integrity of the game of professional hockey and preserving public confidence in the League. The Board of Governors shall determine the term of office and compensation of the Commissioner. The Commissioner shall be elected a majority of the Governors present and voting at a League meeting at which a quorum was present when it was convened.”
In other words, Gary Bettman is the employee of the NHL’s Board of Governors, which is made up of the league’s ownership. Bettman does not do anything without the approval of the Board, and he’s specifically charged with “preserving public confidences in the League.” At no point would it be fair to suggest that Bettman is “running the league,” but that’s how he is consistently portrayed in the media. A different interpretation of Bettman’s job leads to a more favourable reading of the man himself.
Gary Bettman is the public face of the NHL’s Board of Governors, itself dominated by large personalities like Boston Bruins owner Jeremy Jacobs, who are the real powers behind the league. Or, perhaps more accurately, Bettman could be described as the ownership’s lightning rod, meant to draw negative attention away from the individuals who control—and financially benefit from—the league’s operations. It’s a job he does very well.
Whenever the Board of Governors makes a decision that would likely be unpopular with the fans, you can be sure that Gary Bettman will be present to announce “his” decision to the public with an irritating smile on his face. All the while NHL fans are booing the earnest commissioner, they’re ignoring that his actions require the approval of the same ownership group who sells them tickets, jerseys, and inflatable noise sticks. That allows fans to live within the cognitive dissonance of “hating the league” while still regularly lining the pockets of their local owner.

Step Two: See How Well He Plays the Villain

Gary Bettman has put himself front and centre for every unpopular move the NHL has made. The best example of this might have been the various lockouts, each of which was portrayed in the media as a battle between Gary Bettman and the NHLPA. Heck, Bettman was so hated for his role in the league’s first lockout that Chris Chelios threatened his family! However, those more in the know lay the responsibility for the lockouts squarely on a cabal of old school owners like Jacobs, who simply give Bettman his marching orders.
The issue of the NHL’s participation in the 2018 Winter Olympics has been similarly portrayed, with headlines constantly decrying “Bettman’s opposition” to NHLers in Pyeongchang. It’s as if the fact that Bettman is only publicly representing the stance of the owners who actually own the rights of the players in question is being wilfully ignored. When would-be owner Jim Balsillie tried and failed to purchase an NHL team, it was depicted as a conflict between Balsillie and Bettman, instead of Balsillie’s inability to ingrain himself in the “old boy’s club” of the Board of Governors.
The ongoing Calgary arena debate, which is actually less of a debate and more of a blatant display of corporate greed, is a perfect example of the “Bettman factor.” In a conflict that was clearly between Flames ownership and Mayor Naheed Nenshi, Bettman appeared to thrust his Oswald Cobblepot-like visage into the mix, threatening Nenshi’s chances at re-election. It’s not Bettman who doesn’t want to pay for a new arena, it’s N. Murray Edwards and his partners, but that’s not what it looks like when the National Post publishes headlines like “This Nenshi Guy Sure Knows How to Get Under Bettman’s Skin.”
https://imgur.com/a/qXWZ4
The Islanders, a team also suffering ongoing arena-related difficulties, provided another recent showcase of Gary Bettman: Human Lightning Rod. When addressing the possibility of the team returning to the once-beloved Nassau Coliseum, owner Jon Ledecky said, “The commissioner said it’s not viable, and absolutely I agree with the commissioner.” Apparently, Bettman moonlights as a building inspector when he’s not busy commissioning sports leagues.

Step Three: Look How Much Fun He Has With It

Once one has accepted that Gary Bettman’s job is to absorb all of the public hatred that should rightfully be directed at league ownership, it’s hard not to notice how much fun he has with the role. This is where mere tolerance of Bettman gives way to actually being a fan of the guy. Observe the sheer glee on his face as he saunters up to the podium to say, “We have a trade to announce!” knowing that the legion of fans booing him are about to hang on his every word. This is a man who doesn’t mind being the villain.
Lesser commissioners might wilt under the thunderous boos hurled in his direction, but Bettman almost seems to enjoy them, smiling throughout the onslaught and frequently commenting on the “warm welcome.” You can see it on his face—Bettman is fully aware that every boo directed at him ensures the fan hurling it will continue to be a paying customer of Bettman’s bosses. The constant derision, along with the financial health it represents, ensures that Bettman will be employed as commissioner as long as he wants to be. When he retires, the NHL is going to have a tough time finding another individual as good at attracting and absorbing hatred as Gary Bettman.

2017.08.03 23:26 Deadinsky66 Thanks for everything so far

No, this isn't a leaving post, this is a "I felt like formally thanking a lot of people who have had an impact on my life". Read if you want, or not, it's up to you. Also a warning that the explanations get less and less detailed towards the end due to slightly waning motivation and I was debating on if I should release this, or maybe just pm people, but I figured if I have the urge to do this again I can always make a part 2.

sandyxdaydream

I don’t think I can express in words how much I appreciate you for being an amazing mentor. With TPP, you’ve helped me so much in my journey as a live updater, from my first shift to when I replaced Sandy Commandy as chief, and as well as embracing the community by taking initiative with projects such as creating TPPKappa. But I would say moreso outside of TPP. For one, you have a good sense of business skills and have helped me with a lot of that. But also, life really hasn’t been the best for me the last few years, and I could always trust you to be a shoulder to vent on. And likewise, I’ve appreciated hearing about more of your life through some of your venting. You’re going to go places in life, and I’m glad you’ve been a part of mine.

2ty15

I can’t believe it’s been over two years since you’ve become a mod, but you’ve done so much in that timespan for TPP. The Discord was your brainchild, you’re always push the envelope and have ideas like the TPP Community Survey, and are always good for making jokes. I enjoy being a TDP fanboy with you; when the last day of the month comes, I always make sure to get a better monthly update time guess than you. But also it’s fun starting a chat with you, collaborating on memes, and helping you out when needed. You’re a gator loving mod and my partner in crime, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Just stop changing my nickname to emojis.

Pioxys

You always are the life and soul of the party, wherever you go. Whether it’s when you chat on Discord or doing your ask blog or chilling on AoC, you always manage to bring a smile to your friends and people around you. Even if the word is crappy around you (the job hunt hasn’t been the kindest to you for instance), you always think of the positive and are a real inspiration. I always love following your antics with art, it’s always lovely and your ask blogs are always engaging. You never stray to the normal (a recent example being the gator in the shoe), and I never know what to expect next from you, but I’m excited to see. And if you leave again I’m not making you another goodbye thing because of how much crap I got into last time.

Leonys

We’ve had a rollercoaster of a time together. The highs are pretty high, and the lows are pretty dang low. I’m not going to go into it that much, but I’m happy that the lows are no longer as present and I can bicker to you about Blue Jays vs Rangers stuff or chatting on Twitter or relying on you for live updating stuff. Fun story, which I don’t think I ever told you, but during the ORAS rematch urn I fell asleep, being 3 am, and your ping asking if I was okay woke me up. I finished and went home from Starbucks, and that saved me from a lot of grief. You might not have had as much chance to prove yourself as you would like, but I think you’d be a good fit for whatever you take on.

twitchspeaks

It’s been fun working with you for the last few years. From being way too shy about doing the second Human Mode, to pinning me into recording/posting the Pokemon Gen 1 Rap, to working on the Minecraft server together, to helping you with some of your dumb antics (like Twitch controls you for Halloween), it’s always a blast with you. I thank you for getting me to Stream in the first place, for giving me the opportunity to coordinate a lot of fun things with the Minecraft server (Version 1 and 2), and for being a cool friend that I can chat with. I wish you good luck with your future endeavours, and hopefully once you’re in a comfortable position you can come back and say hi.

tustin2121

Some people are Jack of All Trades, but I would say you’re an Ace of All Trades. From your programming prowess with TPPPark, TPPLeague and UpdaterNeeded to your writing skills with The Photograph, The Seventeenth Summer and The People of Hoenn, you really take an idea and go with it. You’re always a consistent updater (although I do worry sometimes about having it on during work but you seem to be fine with it), and it’s fun to chat with you, both in TPP and TPPLeague. You’re always there if I need a quick task/question (like recording a thing or trying to find a workaround for a stream). Keep being awesome, and TPPPark2 when?.

KipTheMudkip

While I can’t say I approve of your flareon obsession, that’s the least of my concerns. Thanks for picking up the Community News and continuing its legacy in the weekly updates. Thanks for being a big part of the dev team for Prism and for TPPDevs. Thanks for dealing with my crappy footage for the trailer. Thanks for being a good officer and giving good tips about moderation. Thanks for being a consistent updater. Thanks for redesigning the daily thread. Thanks for a lot of things.

LightningXCE

I joke with you about furry stuff but you’re honestly just a really awesome person to be around. Whether you’re giving insight into the game you’re developing, or some of your graphic design works, or just chatting about the weirdest things when you’re drunk. I’m happy that I can be of help with the Prism subreddit, and thanks for the help with some of the graphic design work of my own. :D

Chaos_lord

If someone deserves a medal, it’s you. You put countless hours into TPP for little to no recognition, and despite taking heat from Streamer (because when you do the right thing by giving someone a slap for racism he threatens to take away your modship) and stress from other sources, you still persist. I’m not on stream as much to see the fruits, but hopefully some of the memes/cool things I send you can help you relax. And personally I think you’re doing a fine job interacting with others.

Duplex_be_great

!jackdaw !domist !yeero !smash But actually, thanks for being the main force for the .org, a rival from when I was on the GDocs and a resource as an updater. You’re a great active member of the community, and I enjoy reading your stories. Keep using mobile-friendly emotes.

snowball721

You’re a great person to talk about hockey with, and I enjoy your enthusiasm towards Solareon/Sunshine stuff. Cheers to Lundquist actually getting a cup, and fuck Sean Avery.

BigFatMantis

Thanks for pushing me to get more into competitive Pokemon, through the Kappa Cup, TPPLA, and more. I’m glad to help with some of the art stuff in return.

Everyle

Thanks for being an awesome artist who drew me back into TPP after the start of Emerald burnt me out.

ColeWalski

Thanks for making amazing lore and truly sucking me into the world of the Pantheon.

liria12

Thanks for being an amazing artist and sharing your gift to TPP.

MadaoSunglasess

Don’t worry, you haven’t sunk into the pit of forgotten for me.

Tyrrell

Thanks for modding me in the first place after you got fed up with the frequency of having to implement my sidebar work, and thanks for remodding me a few days afterwards when a group majority between the mods demodded me.

BlitzMcKrieg

Thanks for being the front-man of TDP, a game which I randomly became passionate about and stuck with it because of your work.

super-redguy

Thanks for showing me the ropes as a live updater, and stealing a lot of my urns.

Honourable mentions (aka the people who I meant to write for but got a bit burnt out)

Live Updaters (should have been a big one), Lycaa, AOMRocks20, wheatgrain, CanisAries, Cyander, bexxxxxxx, rctgamer3, RT-Pickred, AgainTheSaga, abiyoru, Sam-0, SoNick, amber_apostle, flarn2006, njike (especially since you made me some art), -pkmn, and more.

And you

TPP has been a great time for me the last few years, and while I’ve done arguable too much, it’s all because of you guys. I would make this a bit longer about how it’s affected me and how enjoyable it’s been, but honestly I lost a bit of motivation slightly towards the end should get back to studying exams. Maybe next time, like mentioned at the start.

2017.07.22 11:31 SingleFatFootballFan Offseason Review Series, Day 19: The New York Giants

New York Giants

2016 record: 11-5 (2nd in the division, 5th seed in the playoffs, lost to the Packers in the Wild Card round)

Introduction

When the Giants were dominating the Packers through the first quarter and a half of their playoff matchup in Lambeau, I really felt this was the start of another magical run. The defense was flying around, getting to the quarterback, disrupting one of the hottest offenses in the league. Meanwhile on the other side of the football, Eli was moving the ball with ease, closely resembling the quarterback who shocked the football world in the same venue five years ago. The ending was disappointing, but coming into 2017, I don’t think I’ve ever felt better about a Giants team in the Eli Manning era than I do as I type these words out. The defense returns nearly all of their starters and the offense got major upgrades at receiver and tight end through free agency and the draft. I want that third ring for Eli badly, I want it because it would mean he would personally have three more rings than the Eagles have won in their lifetime, I want it so the organization would have the same number of Super Bowl trophies as That Team In Texas Not Named The Texans and most importantly I want it so we can end the debate over if Eli is a Hall of Famer. We shouldn’t even be discussing it and yet I still read from doubters every year. Unless the soul of Brandon Meriweather overtakes Landon Collins body, this team has as good of a chance as any in the league to give Eli the opportunity to lift his third Lombardi trophy.

2016 team statistics

Offensive rank
Type 2016 2015
Points 26 6
Yards 25 8
DVOA 23 16
 
By every metric available, the Giants offense was terrible in 2016. It’s easy to point the blame towards the Giants tackles, or ineffective run game or lack of talent at the tight end spot, and fans would be well within their right to spread the blame across different positional groups, but their struggles go beyond lack of skill-set at key positions. If Giants fans didn't know what 11 personnel meant before this season, they sure do now, though when people criticize McAdoo for staying in one formation, they are missing a larger point. The Giants offense wasn’t bad because they only stayed in 11 personnel, and I think McAdoo deserves a pass for sticking with this formation as much as he did. The Giants didn’t employ any blocking tight ends, had no fullbacks on the roster and lacked depth at running back. The personnel McAdoo was handed left him with few options. Where McAdoo deserves blame is with his lack of creativity when using 11 personnel. He rarely moved players around the formation, typically keeping the same guys in the same spot in the formation, with Eli in shotgun. It got to a point where if Eli was ever spotted under center it was actually noteworthy. The Giants offensive scheme is stale, and contrary to what traditional metrics may indicate, the offense has never been that good under McAdoo. The wheels finally came off the offensive bus last year, but I’ll argue the bus was never moving that well to begin with. Football Outsiders DVOA metric is the best metric to assess how each team’s units stack up relative to other teams since it incorporates teams strength of schedule. In the McAdoo era, the Giants offense has ranked 14th, 16th and 26th in the league. Defenders of Ben McAdoo will point out he’s never had as good of an offensive line, running backs, tight ends or wide receivers that Gilbride had at his disposal during his peak, and that is very fair, though that excuse will fall on deaf ears if the 2017 offense is only a slightly sexier version of 2016.
 
Defensive ranks
Type 2016 2015
Points 2 30
Yards 10 32
DVOA 2 31
 
The Giants defense made history last season, they made the highest leap in DVOA in the history of the NFL. Jerry Reese got great return on the $103,500,000 guaranteed dollars he handed Vernon, Jenkins and Harrison last year. The biggest surprise was the leap Landon Collins took from his freshman to sophomore year. We can safely blame his poor 2015 performance on having to partner with Brandon Meriweather, there isn’t a safety in the league who would look good having to cover both sides of the field. Lastly, one can’t help but wonder what Tom Coughlin’s reaction was to the signings a year after he "resigns". It’s like getting evicted by your landlord because he blames you for the leak in the ceiling and the sewage coming from the bathroom, then once you are out he invests $100,000 in brand new appliances for the new tenant. And yes, in that analogy, Jayron Hosley represents the leaking ceiling.

Good Thursday morning. GET READY FOR THROWDOWN THURSDAY. James Comey’s testimony before the Senate Intel Committee starts at 10 a.m. Today all the networks and all the cables will be live -- with a few of them offering up live streams for free online. And if James Comey’s much buzzed about statement is any indication of his savvy and willingness to dish, Trump will be more than tweeting today. He’ll be seething. Comey’s statementhttp://bit.ly/2rMG1bK
FOLLOW POLITICO’s two reporters in the hearing room (Hart 216) today: Josh Gerstein (@joshgerstein) and Kyle Cheney (@kyledcheney).
THE PRESIDENT’S THURSDAY -- Trump speaks at the Faith and Freedom Coalition's Road to the Majority Conference at 12:15 p.m., and then will host governors and mayors at the White House for an infrastructure summit at 3:30.
-- NOTES: The president has nothing before his 12:15 speech. Some of the newsiest bits of the hearing will be at the top. THE PRESS BRIEFING TODAY is with Sarah Huckabee Sanders and it will be off camera. Speaker Paul Ryan is holding his weekly press conference at 11:30 a.m. today in the Capitol.
REMEMBER THIS -- Comey isn’t constrained by traditional political considerations. Today will shape his legacy. Our reporting tells us that members of Congress don’t expect him to accuse the president of a crime, but expect him to be extremely open about what transpired behind closed doors. We are told that he will, at times, go beyond what he wrote in his statement.
**SUBSCRIBE to Playbook:http://politi.co/2lQswbh
THE BIG PICTURE -- NYT, A18 -- “Comey’s Political Shrewdness Is on Display in Tussle With Trump,” by Peter Baker and Glenn Thrush: “The morning, at least, seemed to go reasonably well for President Trump. He announced a new F.B.I. director, and two intelligence chiefs told Congress the president had never pressured them to interfere in the investigation into Russian election meddling.
“And then James B. Comey … dropped the hammer. By authorizing the immediate release of the opening statement he plans to give in his much anticipated appearance before a congressional committee on Thursday, he instantly changed the conversation back to his assertion that the president tried to shut down part of the F.B.I. investigation.
“Mr. Trump may be relatively new to Washington, but Mr. Comey is not. A savvy veteran of the capital who has worked in high positions in multiple administrations, he has usually emerged on top in any internal power struggle. And in the month since his dismissal, Mr. Comey has shown why presidents are normally loath to fire F.B.I. directors.” http://nyti.ms/2sGpeXF
THE REPUBLICAN NATIONAL COMMITTEE sent an email at 9:56 p.m. last night to people around town with the subject line: “Talking Points and Digital Packet for Senate Intelligence Committee Hearing.” The first item under “top takeaway” is “President Trump feels completely and totally vindicated by Former FBI Director James Comey’s opening testimony and is eager to move forward.” It includes a “suggested tweets” section. The RNC talking pointshttp://politi.co/2sGgWPA … WSJ: RNC says they’ve dedicated 60 aides to the pushback effort. http://on.wsj.com/2s6pNx0
THE COUNTER ATTACK -- “West Wing aides fearful of directly attacking Comey: The White House has outsourced its counter-messaging effort during Comey’s testimony, as aides try to avoid more personal legal risk,” by Matt Nussbaum, Josh Dawsey, Darren Samuelsohn and Tara Palmeri: “‘It’s fair to say a storm is coming,’ one administration source said. ‘We’re boarding up the windows for the impending hurricane.’ ... The [RNC] is taking the lead in the response and has prepared a surrogate operation. ... Two former Trump White House officials — former deputy chief of staff Katie Walsh and former communications director Mike Dubke — are helping coordinate the effort. Press secretary Sean Spicer was at the RNC on Wednesday as preparations took place. ... For official comment, the White House has directed all questions to the office of Trump’s outside counsel, Marc Kasowitz.
“Kasowitz’s office, in turn, has directed inquiries to Emily Thall, the law firm’s director of business development and marketing. On Tuesday, Thall declined to comment in a brief conversation with POLITICO about Comey testimony. By Wednesday, inquiries to Thall were met with an automatic response: She would be out of the office on vacation until next week. By Wednesday night, Kasowitz’s firm had retained longtime political communications pro Mark Corallo to handle media inquiries.” http://politi.co/2rY3CYY
QUOTE OF THE DAY – From the quadruple-byline story: “White House aides are trying to keep Trump busy Thursday morning with meetings so he won’t watch TV and tweet during the hearing. ‘But if he wants to watch it, it’s not like we can say, ‘oh, the TV doesn’t work,’’ one official said.”
HOW IT’S PLAYING -- HUFFPOST banner, “COMEY BEFORE THE STORM” … DRUDGE as of 6 a.m., “MAY DAY” (about the UK election) … N.Y. POST, “‘I EXPECT LOYALTY’” http://nyp.st/2sGrBtM … N.Y. DAILY NEWS, “DON’S PLEA: COVERUP” http://nydn.us/2simZwi … EVEN TMZ IS IN ON THE ACTION -- They have videos of Sen. Richard Burr (R-N.C.) (http://bit.ly/2qYQTBX) and Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.)

FUN READ -- “‘Must-See TV’: Free Drinks and Canceled Meetings for Comey’s Testimony,” by NYT’s Mike Grynbaum and Katie Rogers: “By the time details from Mr. Comey’s prepared remarks surfaced on Wednesday ... the hearing had leapt from Beltway curiosity to required viewing, a cliffhanger episode of the nation’s real-life reality show. … At Union Pub in Washington, a sports bar steps from the Hart Senate Office Building, bartenders plan to dole out a free round of Budweisers or bourbon shots every time Mr. Trump blasts out a tweet. For those wondering: No, there will not be a limit. ‘We’ll give out 20 rounds’ if the president tweets 20 times, Ashley Saunders, the bar’s general manager, said.” http://nyti.ms/2rXKSc3
THIS TOWN -- “White-collar lawyers see opportunity in Trump scandals,” by Darren Samuelsohn and Andrew Restuccia: “More than a dozen attorneys and crisis communications specialists have already started working for Trump associates touched by the unfolding Russia scandal, according to a POLITICO tally.

ACROSS THE POND -- BRITISH ELECTION TODAY -- “Polls open in UK election after campaign marred by attacks,” by AP’s Danica Kirka in London: “Polling stations opened across Britain on Thursday for national elections, amid heightened security worries following a series of terror attacks in what one senior police official described as ‘unprecedented times.’ The public is being asked to be alert and to report concerns to police as voters choose 650 lawmakers for the House of Commons. Deputy Assistant Commissioner Lucy D’Orsi acknowledged concerns about Thursday’s general election.” http://apne.ws/2qYLB9t

Over the past few weeks, the often stiff-in-her-role first lady has been spending more time in the White House, building out her East Wing staff, preparing the residence for the family and slowly increasing her schedule of public events. ... [T]he June 14 date is seen as a major marker on the White House calendar — when the first lady puts away the full matching set of Louis Vuitton luggage that she travels with and settles in for good.” With cameos by Sam Nunberg, Chris Ruddy and Anita McBridehttp://politi.co/2simMJL

CAPITOL HILL WATCH -- “Trump ‘all in’ on Senate Obamacare repeal,” by Burgess Everett and Josh Dawsey: “At a meeting with congressional leaders on Tuesday, Trump urged Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) to follow through on an aggressive timetable for repealing the law in order to quickly turn to tax reform and help avoid a calamitous autumn full of key fiscal deadlines, according to multiple sources familiar with the meeting.” http://politi.co/2rOpxzU
-- IT’S IMPORTANT TO NOTE: Senators don’t like being told by Trump, or really any president, about how to run the Senate. While Republican senators have been working their way through how to pass a health care bill, GOPers across the ideological spectrum have been pessimistic about legislation actually passing. But most insiders note: don’t count out Mitch McConnell.

DRAIN THE SWAMP! -- “Trump White House lacks waivers for longtime lobbyists: Critics are questioning whether White House officials with broad portfolios can truly steer clear of conflicts of interest,” by Theo Meyer: “At least a half-dozen former lobbyists are working in President Donald Trump’s White House even though they haven’t received waivers from the administration’s ethics rules, raising questions about how much the rules do to prevent conflicts of interest. ...
“The Trump administration has granted exemptions from the rules for a handful of staffers, as President Barack Obama’s administration did. But at least six former lobbyists now working in the White House haven’t received such waivers, meaning they must recuse themselves internally from any issue where they have conflicts, according to the White House. ...

Tourists perch on the blue velvet sofas in the lobby, snapping cell-phone pictures as power players stream across the dark marble floors and cream carpets: international businessmen, Republican operatives, wealthy donors, foreign diplomats, former Trump campaign aides, the occasional Administration official.

HISTORY LESSON -- “The Greatest Hearings in American History: James Comey’s testimony joins the pantheon of dramatic congressional moments,” by Joshua Zeitz in POLITICO Magazine: “This isn’t the first – and it won’t be the last – time that congressional testimony captured the nation’s imagination. From the Army-McCarthy hearings of 1954 to the Iran Contra hearings in 1987, House and Senate committees have held ordinary citizens in rapt attention. ... Comey’s testimony is in this sense an absolutely American phenomenon.” http://politi.co/2rY5nFI
NICK SCHMIDLE in The New Yorker, “James Comey’s Intellectual History”: “Comey has told associates that he never tried to lure Trump into improprieties. ‘It wasn’t like Jim was going to the Mob boss, all wired up, trying to secretly extract a confession,’ one associate told me. Yet, in Comey’s view, Trump’s behavior toward him repeatedly crossed the line, making him ‘an obstructor.’ Based on Comey’s prepared remarks, his Senate testimony will lay the basis for this legal claim, without explicitly making the charge. His testimony is likely to be supremely assured. A senior intelligence official said of Comey, ‘He likes the stage. He takes politicians’ questions apart. He loves the fact that he’s smarter than them.’” http://bit.ly/2sGe9pz
RICH LOWRY, “Comey’s fizzle”: “The document has considerable entertainment value in its dead-pan account of a profound mismatch, a Washington buddy movie gone bad. It’s a tale of a bureaucratically agile and self-serving careerist matched against an institutionally ignorant and self-serving outsider. One is careful, memorializing every conversation and calculating his every more; the other is blundering around in the dark — and eventually blows the whole thing up.” http://politi.co/2rNXfFB

2017.02.03 09:25 WDMcArthur "Applaud"

APPLAUD Written by Wyatt Diego McArthur
Part One: Applaud Part 1
Axl slept in his bed. Because he had one. A House too. He wasn’t homeless. He was a human, head, arms, dick, brain, you know, the works. He had recently just turned 40 at this point in his life I am starting at. The alarm awoke Axl and he quickly hit the button to shut it up, but it continued with it’s complaining, so he pulled the plug. Beep, Beep, Beep, Beep. I know, what, right? He then took the batteries out and voila. So that’s what it was. Axl had long blonde hair and eyes that held an ocean filled world in each of it’s sockets. He had become a creative consultant and now creative producer on the sitcom “Fred and Fred”, a show about an ex cop who’s now a drug dealer who’s roommates with an ex drug dealer who’s now a cop. The show had a standard set up, canned laughter, sometimes an audience, bullshit sets, blablabla, until Axl came along. Axl convinced Bob Speo (producer of Fred and Fred, and Chairman of ‘Applause’ studios) to let him hire his longtime friend and film director Sean Werner to rewrite the script and completely change the show, for the better, as Axl put it. The Particular day I described of Axl waking up just a few sentences back was the first day of shooting the “new and improved” version of “Fred and Fred”. Axl lit a cigarette and walked into the room next door to wake up his son Bart.
Axl entered Bart’s room, Bart, a vomiting image of his father, asleep in his bed, is shook by his dad a good two or three times before he let out a few tired and sick and tired groans.
Axl: “Son, C’mon dude, wake up, it’s time to get up for school, c’mon. Your mom’s gonna be pissed off if you don’t get up again.”
He nudges bart a few more times, then walks off to prepare his body with naked bandages (a smartasses’ term for clothes that I will not use again), for his first day of shooting. Without any visual or physical differences, Bart arises from his slumber. Bart: “Dad, I graduated last year, and you and mom are divorced.”
Axl, dressed in a casual Friday get up, on a Monday, white t-shirt, jeans, a very homosexual ‘han solo-esque’ black vest thing, his hair flowing down, Axl prepares himself a cup of coffee and heads to the door.
“Wait dad.” Axl hears his son call from behind him, there he sees his son, standing in the doorway of his room, in his underwear, smoking a cigarette as well.
“What?”, Axl asks his son. Bart: “Can you take me to Cleo’s?” Axl: “I’m in kind of a hurry, who’s that?” Bart: “It’s my girlfriend, dad. I mean, you’ve met her man, jeez.”
Getting closer to his son, Axl replies, “Oh yeah, right, shit I just woke up Bart.”, Axl takes Bart’s cigarette out of his mouth and puts it in his, now smoking two. “Isn’t she at school?”
Bart: “She took off school to see me today so you have to take me.” Axl: “She’s skipping school for a boy?” Bart: “Better than skipping boy for school.”
Bart snags the cigarette back and returns it to his mouth.
Axl waited in his car as Bart got dressed. Axl glanced down at his laptop for the time, as he didn’t have a phone, which is an aspect of the story that will continue on as a running gag. After not much longer Bart appeared outside and hopped into the passenger seat, “My bad.” He claimed to his father. Axl rebuttled, “Jesus, we’re shooting today Bart.” As he pulled out of the driveway. “Where the fuck is it?” Axl asked Bart, “Lakewood Heights”
Axl: “What is she, 18?” Bart: “She’s my age” Axl: “What, 17, 16?” Bart: “Dad I’m 19.” Axl: “She’s 19?” Bart: “I said she’s my age, and I said I’m 19, soo...” Axl: “Ok, son I’m just making sure, even if she was underrage,I could only give advice.” Bart: “Dad, first off, we’re both 19, second off, you’ve not dated, but fucked underagers all around.” Axl: “All around? Whatchoo mean all around?” Bart: “Mom said you slept with an underage girl.” Axl: “Yeah, that doesn’t mean ‘all around’, but yeah I did, she was 16.” Bart: “And how old were you?” Axl: “I was 21.” Bart starts a smirk and claps once. Bart: “Jeez Dad, and you’re telling me to watch out and all that.” Axl: “Because what I did had repercussions, big ones, that you don’t understand.” Bart: “What Dad? Did you do time?” Axl: “No, no. It just caused a lot of problems, do I turn here?” Bart: “Yeah..What do you mean? What types of problems?” Axl: “All of them..Which house is it?” Bart: “The brown one, right there..What do you mean all of them?”
Axl parks not far off from the driveway.
Axl: “Son. You’re already worrying about so much, such a pointless topic will cause you to worry more than this is worth worrying about, you have whatever life is ahead of you to hear about problems being caused, bringing up problems of the past only renews them to be ones of the present.” Bart: “Alright dad, love you.” Axl: “Love you too son, call me ok? I’ll be off in only hours.” Bart: “You don’t have a phone, but alright dad.”
And as Axl’s car door shut and he drove off, the brown house’s door opened and a beautiful blue eyed blonde, shy of twenty, stepped out, and smiled to Bart.
Cleo: “Hey.” Bart: “You’re nothing short of an Angel huh?”
And the smile just got prettier and prettier.
Axl pulled into the parking space labeled with yellow paint ‘producer’, at “Applause” studios, right next to the director’s parking space, where Sean’s blue impala stay parked. He toted up his laptop, pocketed his lighter and black 100s and walked into the lobby, made a left turn to the elevator and elevated. He entered the studio at 7:30 am, his assistant Abigail stood waiting for him with an assistant’s clipboard in her arms.
Axl: “Good morning Abigail”, with a smile only she understood. Abigail: “Morning Axl.’ Giving the same smile back. Axl: “Where’s Sean?” walking with Axl across the main center of the studio, as the audience begins to enter the room, filling in the tv pews, “He’s waiting for you, I was just about to tell you.” Abigail replied, preparing to lean and whisper into his ear, “Behind the curtains.”
Axl: “Does Bob know?”, Abigail shook her head in a way that spoke the word “No.” and with that Axl’s speed walk temporarily deserted Abigail, who nonchalantly and quite calmly headed that way.
While Axl approaches his ol’ buddy Sean let me tell you about Abigail, whose blonde hair drops with a slight twirl but not spinned enough to be considered curly, whose eyes glimmer with green and blue, with too much green to consider her blue eyed and too much blue to consider her green eyed, whose pupil was not a sphere, but a splatter, as if Jackson Pollock’s brush flinged an earthy dollop right into both of her sockets. Her build slim and smile as beautiful as an angel who just kicked you in the nuts, laughing at you with a welcoming grimace of uncomfortable comfort. We’ll learn more about Abigail as we go along.
Axl gets behind the curtain and sees his old friend of shared times (you will soon read about) Sean Werner, newly knighted director of Fred and Fred, up on a ladder, securing a latch on a rafter type device above him, with the help of nobody else. “What’s up faggot fuck?” Axl jokingly threw at his friend from his mouth. “Sup Bud? Check this out.” Said Sean, standing at the edge of the stage set, pointing up to what would usually just be the rafters and cranks and gears with other nicknames and lingo that give them a more professional flavor. Axl looks up at whatever it is his buddy’s been working on. “Have you tested it yet?”, Axl curiously questioned to Sean. Sean: “I can’t. I’m sure it’ll work, it just needs to come down in anyway really, enough to block off the audience, plus, Bob doesn’t know about it, so we can only cross our fingers on it.”
The actors playing “Fred and Fred” coincidently were named Mike and Mike (my idea), Carson and Avery being their last names, were good friends. Who had worked together on the comedy film “Paperclips” and separately on several Adult Swim and Comedy Central programs, selectively, known to some as throw away actors such as Paul Scheer, Rob Huebell, John Michael Higgins or that fuck who played Raffi on that tween candy shit show ‘The League’ from the early 2010s. Mike Avery snorted ‘over the dashboard’ power powder in his 90 something whatever the truck while Mike Carson released ‘into the bowl’ chocolate lava out of his asshole. He shit so much he felt his brain come out of his ass, as some would ask me if the same happened to truly yours, cause aren’t I a smartass? After the fictional drummer ‘badumm tssss’ his kit and disappeared from the rest of the story as he only existed in a mere sentence, Bob Speo de-entered (exited) his arrogant office and landed his oversized shoed feet step by step through the studio until he reached said location of Axl and Sean, standing below what he now (but not for long) did not know existed.
Bob: “Hey fellas, we just about set?” Bob said…on the set. Sean: “I get it. Ha…yeah we are.” Bob: “Get what?”, Axl unconsciously began to walk away from the other two, as his mind began to settle on another plane in the same location. “Where you off to bud?”, sean called to Axl, understanding his movements but making believe for Bob’s un-understanding that ge un-understood why Axl no longer stood where they did. “I’mma just tell Abigail and check with the crew and check the lenses, uh… how long do you think til Action?” Axl called as he exited the stage, right. “I’d say about 10.”, Sean called back. Axl entered and exited darkness quickly as he reached Abigail again, who was in on what only Axl and Sean were also in on. “I need you to go get the boys, mikes, we’re about ready.” Axl to Abigail, “I’m about to take care of one more thing, it’ll be good once you get em over.” Axl began to trail off again until he was called by Abigail’s “Where are they at?”, Axl quickly turned and answered “Avery should be outside, I saw him leave the studio when coming in, Carson should be around, maybe check the bathroom or something.” Before leaving Abigail’s presence and arriving at the presence of a crew member named Ralph. “Hey ya Ralph!” Axl said, approaching the short, blading man of either African or Puerto Rican decent, “Hello Axl.” And Axl proceeded to gain Ralph’s assistance on a task done right in front of every eye in the audience that saw what was happening in front of them, as Sean distracted Bob, who was very foreign to their deceit.
You know the signs that flash in a studio to the audience that makes a viewer a puppet? You know the ones that tell you what you’re supposed to think is funny, cute or what you ‘have’ to Applaud to? Well Axl tipped off Ralph to him evacuate those very machines from said premises, while the patient viewers, just shrugged it off as part of a planned procedure. Carson hiked up his character ‘Fred’s cop drawers and blue-badged shirt after downing a ‘vinti’ of espresso while Avery did not have to change his attire for the part he played, nor wipe his nose. Axl guided a camera operator up through the side of the stage, the final ingredient to complete the recipe of their operation, and now it was time to start cooking. With Axl on the right brain of the stage and Sean on the left, the latter (Sean) gave the go ahead to start filming. The actors entered the stage, no applause. Fred Carson (played by Mike Avery) turns to the audience and says “Who the fuck are all these people?” unbeknownst to Bob’s knowledge of the script. Some crack up. Some chuckle. Some don’t laugh at all. But none are controlled by a studio sign.
And that is what tickled Bob Speo’s attention clitoris, with an eyebrow raised and a pattern of one foot in front of another in a repetitive motion, to reach the stage of which he is being deceived, Bob did what I just said he did, but his motions were no use for the action performed by Axl and Werner, both on opposite sides of one another, unlatching a pully that sends a rope upwards and a big windowless wall slams down, in front of the stage, blocking off any view of the set, latching and turning the set into a box, containing only mike and mike, Sean and Axl and a camera man I didn’t think of a name for. Mike and Mike (of course, as fred and fred) began having various panic attacks and mental breakdowns, going complete A wall and acting like toddlers in the condensed ‘apartment room’.
Avery: “What’s Happening???” Bob began to bang on the wall and scream, “AAAAAAAHHHHH OPEN UP!!!” Carson: “I don’t know man, who’s that? Who’s watching us?”
Sean tracked behind the camera guy in a circular fashion, following the two mike freds. Axl stood in a corner of the set, waving his deformed hand with grace and a faceful of guilt smothered satisfaction as if he were conducting a symphony. All of this, mind everything, was Sean and Axl’s reason for having Fred & Fred move out of their apartment, due to a “a schizophrenic episode of paranoia” and change location to a real home. And after some slight coaxing and convincing, Abigail got Sean and Axl’s jobs back, and Bob approved the change.
“Wake up.” Bart woke up to those words, spoken soft from soft lips, his lids opened to a sight for undeserving eyes, a soft young chin on his naked chest, two bright blue pupils, wonderfully gazing at his, as if he were the greatest show on earth, he felt the pasta golden hair on his skin not itching him but blanketing the parts of him not covered by man made bed material. All of this, and a smile from whom to him he thought was an alien, sent from another world to save his soul from a dying body. Her skin him made him want to burst to tears and thank his creator for his luck everytime he achieved a touch. Everything he wanted to say he sent to her with a smile, and that just made hers bigger. He petted her soft cheek with the back of his hand, being able to smack her any given moment, but pain to her wasn’t even a thought that grazed his mind. Only mine. He ran his fingers through her hair like a filth covered prospector would a waterfall after spending years in a dark mine, he treated her like gold. He wanted to melt into her.
Usually when Bart visits Cleo they plan to work on something, or finish a movie, or paint something, but recently they’ve been defiling their plans by giving into their sexual urges. It’s like the air they breathed was their aphrodisiac. If they watched a film led to sex, ate together, led to sex, laughed, sex. Sunday, Sex. Monday, Tuesday, everyday, sex. But he never once started it, he never used her, everything he thought and did and said was for her happiness, boy she made him feel. But what he felt was just a blessing he thought, he was thankful for it, but it wasn’t about him he said, he wished he didn’t have to feel so his whole and everything went to her. “it’s all for you.” He said, “Our love, my love, your love, it’s to protect you and keep you happy, to inspire you, of course what you make me feel is great and what I do may be because of how you make me feel, but I wish it wasn’t that way. I wish I could just help you. I’m sorry that you hurt, I’m sorry you’ve been hurt. Even if I can’t help, I hope I can help you forget for a little while.” And she always said he did. It was only mid day, after his father dropped him off, he and Cleo went straight to her room, where she had a blunt already and rolled for their smoking enjoyment, led to another episode added to the pages of Bart and Cleo’s sexual history book, and the sexual exhaust led to sleep, and after about five hours of temporary sexual induced coma, Bart awoke to eyes honest to his knowledge, erecting a feeling more soothing than the one he got when his father introduced him to The Beatles for the first time, “Yellow Submarine”. Cleo Home was born in ‘someplace or another France’ when her father was on a business trip and fucked a native, having grown in Texas after her father’s mother decided to take her in, with whom she currently stays with. Di Homes, now a widow, keeping her previous partner in misery’s last name spends her elderly days in a bed, connected to tubes, having to get her vitals and blood readings checked every so and so, she shit’s in a Ziploc bag for Jesus Christ himself’s sake. Cleo got up to check her grandmother’s blood or shit bag possibly, “I want to make you food.” To Bart, not her vegetable mother, Bart replied with a laugh, making Cleo smile, as if seeing her teeth in that way was different every time, and better than the last. Bart got up to go to the porch to have a cigarette.
Bart was a student at an art institute but dropped out due to confusion in his goals and the limbo between career dreams. His artistic specialty was sculpting, he loved being able to turn nothing into something, he loved being able to take just a rock or a piece of wood, and create a distinctive or indistinctive image. He loved to create. It made him feel like a God. He won many of the contests his school took part in and was a professor’s favorite due to his unnecessarily necessary incentive attention to the detailed or as Porky Pig would give up and conclude to, he was a thinker. One day Bart was chosen to speak at another school, a community college but the art department specifically, as he was chosen to speak and somewhat or another teach ways of expressing and pushing thoughts through your fingers. He entered a room with but a block of wood (and the clothes he was wearing) and a scalpel, explaining to the students having a plan doesn’t mean you know how things will end up.
“Impulse may interrupt your very being.” Bart said, as he began on what seemed to make out as the stem of an apple,”As an Art student of course I may come off as pretentious, but we all try, everything is an attempt, but some of us are passed off as acceptable because we say that’s how it’s supposed to be, or what ‘it’s supposed to be. What if I told you there is no ‘supposed to be’, what if I told you a worm can be a butterfly? You’d say I’m wrong, and you’d be right, but that’s only because of what you know the words ‘butterfly and worm’ mean to you, but besides the point, does it make the thought wrong? The fact it can’t happen in the world we see as real? The only reason we believe all this is true is because it’s happening to us, and we feel it.”
The carving becomes clearer and clearer as satan’s fruit as his sculpting syncs with his words, “Maybe we’re just Art.” Bart continued, as his blade continued to manipulate the woodwork.
“Maybe every quote unquote real thing’s “god” is an artist, but a mere human in his own reality, and only a creation in his god’s and his god only a human and on and on and on like a Russian egg doll. Maybe your first impression of a thing…”
and crack, Bart smacked what looked like an apple against a corner of the desk, as his eyes caught the attention of a prettier pair, splitting what at first looked like a bitten apple core and stem, take what was at the bottom, and trim it down to what looked as branches putting the bottom on the top, fitting a piece and connecting it as if it were a lego.
“Is completely different than your final dictation of it.”
Standing up and walking through the miniature aisle of all kinds of ambition with all kinds of faces and ultimately reaching the desk of Cleo Home, both with a mutual intrigue at first sight. “But the suspense in the middle,” handing the distorted tree to the youthful beauty at his front, “is the blood pumping vein between worlds.”
Bart dropped out not long after that, feeling he needed to make money, so he quickly and briefly got a job at a meat processing store, as a butcher, losing the job along with his ring finger, for his deceiving depth perception.
Bart walked back into the house, after his cigarette, keeping it from Cleo, as she didn’t like seeing Bart inhale that type of smoke, although she even engaged in the act, if he was smoking weed, I don’t know maybe it was because of her grandmother’s health issue.
Axl drove and picked up Bart Tuesday evening and headed towards lake York to Maya Apple, formerly Maya Christianson, formerly Maya Scolliard, axl’s former wife and present love. Maya was currently married to Tommy Apple, hence her current last name, Apple. (Duh) Maya was 42 at this point in time, Tommy was 33, he met Maya after coming to America to be able to keep in touch with Axl and her son, despite domestic issues, she loved them both. She had been with Tommy for years now, and Bart had known him for so long, Tommy worked at a pawn shop, he worked out everyday, rode his bike to work was pretty particular about what he ate, and he loved The Beatles, “Til There Was You” being his favorite song. He was madly in love with Maya, he didn’t smoke cigarettes but everyday she brought home a pack because she did. He felt her maturity and knowledge was protective and comforting to what he considered (and self claimed) his still youthful and fearful mind, Axl and tommy always got along, they always understood why eachother were so infatuated with Maya, they had similar interests. They related. And Axl respected that. He was once as lucky as Tommy. If you consider Tommy lucky that is.
Maya and Tommy lived about 30-35 minutes away from Axl and his area. It was around 7:30pm when Axl arrived and parked his vehicle outside of his former wife’s residence. Axl lit a cigarette. Bart popped the door open. “What are you doing dad?” asked Bart, “Aren’t you coming?” looking at his father and stepping out of the car at the same time.
Axl: “Yeah, yeah. I’m coming in, I just need a minute, I’ll meet you in there, tell them I’m coming.” Bart: “Alright.” And Bart took his things inside.
Axl felt like he always had to prepare to see her, it’s not like any of his previous experiences similar to this didn’t go to his favor, I guess he was just letting sink in, beforehand, seeing the woman of his dreams without any longer being able to prove it to her. He knew she still loved him, with every eye contact mutual messages were sent, but they both mutually shared a respect for their places in life, their son and for Tommy. Which is why any funny business was kept out of the picture, Maya and Axl never once touched eachother romantically after their divorce. And that was ok, because you can feel without touching. Axl finished his cigarette and entered the house. He heard faint ramblings of his familiars in the kitchen, and he headed that way, he entered the lighted room, greeted by three familiar figures, his former wife, his former wife’s current husband, and his current son.
“My man Axl.: Tommy greeted the protagonist with a big squeezy hug, and Axl welcomed it with open arms, and then Maya, turned around from facing the sink, to see the face of the man whom she gave her virgin heart to. Maya turns and reveals to Axl her planet like stomach. Something Axl just perceived as a complete surprise, and only read the caption blinking in his head, that read “This is a surprise”, he just looked down and embraced his old love with a hug, without question.
Axl: “Maya.” Maya: “Hey Axl.”
I don’t know if Axl cried tears of joy, sadness or both, but I do know that he cried tears.
“How long?” Axl questioned. Maya: “Like three months now.” Axl: “It’s been that long since I’ve seen you?”
As they pull away from eachother. Now looking into eachother’s eyes, the only two in the room, who cares where the others were.
Maya: “I guess it has.” Axl quickly glances down and then back, meeting matching eye level with Maya. Axl: “Maya, I know we’ve talked about it numbers of times but…I’m sorry it’s been like this, I’m sorry it’s token this long. I’m still sorry for the past and I know you say don’t worry about it, but right now you could be standing next to a child of yours, and it’s my fault. I have something to say..”
Maya places a hand on Axl’s cheek, and calms him. “Shhh…” Maya to Axl. Maya: “He’s mine. He calls me mother, you take him to me. It’s ok.” Axl: “I know, but we never tried, and I lied about so much.”
Axl’s tearduct produced a single tear that dripped from his eye like a recently turned faucet. “I’ll never know, Maya. That’s what hurts. All we have is today and all that tells me is no more. And if I want to continue seeing your face I have to be ok with it. I’m not going to do anything bad, I have so much respect for this family, and love.” Maya: “I know it’s all so weird Axl. I love you. I hope you know that. I’m always going to, I said no matter what didn’t I?” Axl: “I fucked up so bad. I’d never know if we’d still be together if I hadn’t done that.” “Do what?” Tommy asked as he entered the kitchen, as if he had just appeared, like he were just written into the scene, passing them up and getting a glass of water. Maya: “The past, Tommy. It’s just blabber to you.” Tommy: “Right, right. Axl we’ll catch up in a bit, I’m gonna be in the arcade room with Bart.” Axl: “Alright bud.” Tommy disappears again. Axl: “It means everything to me though. Why’d you never ask me why?’ Maya: “Cause I know you didn’t have a reason, and I know you still don’t.”
Axl joined Tommy and Bart on the roof for a goodnight joint, it was after dinner and at about 9:15 at this point. To get onto the roof through the house the boys used the window in the arcade room, a compartment in the house that had several gaming consoles, as well as the old school arcade machines, tweaked to receive tokens, rather than actual currency, the room had The Simpsons, Pacman, that awesome first person Star Wars game you’d find at Chuck-E-Cheese’s and some others I don’t care to think of, it’s all besides the point really.
Axl climbed out of the window and carefully guided himself to the part where Bart and Tommy were sitting, his son rotating a joint under fire, he took a seat on the housetop. Bart ghosted a toke from the bone that you would think would be one that would come from a bong, with clouds coming from his mouth and nose, and followed and concluded by maniacal coughing, passing it next to the hand of Tommy.
Bart: “Thanks bud.” As he takes a few hits and passes it over to his beloved love and eskimo buddy. Axl: “’Preciate it.” And Axl does as the previous two did. Tommy: “So Axl you got work tomorrow?” Axl: “Of course. In the morning too man, probably going to head home after this.” Tommy: “Y’all shooting tomorrow?” Axl: “Yes. New set and everything, actually it’s not a set, it’s a real home, we already shot some new footage there today, I personally am kind of bored already, but what’s cool is they’re airing the first two episodes on Friday.” Tommy: “They’re coming out with it that fast?”
Yes they did. The fastest any show ever aired an episode after shooting, less than a week. The show surprised viewers and the small tasteless fanbase fred and fred did have. The realism and eeriness worked for the best and Sean was hired on as the official director and producer, Axl’s position staying the same, he tried to find other outlets for his mind to conquer, with every day spent with Mike, Mike, Abigail, Sean, Bob and the crew Axl grew sicker and tireder of the show and began to feel the originality growing generic.
The thing is, is that no matter the effort, usually the director achieves more credit than the producer, even if the producer formed the idea, with a film, a credit will be “A Film By (insert director’s name)” and not the producer, but why is that the Academy Award for Best Motion Picture of the Year is Awarded to the Producer? Is it only because of what the word producer means? Producer means at it’s heart and soul, “Creator”, while Director at it’s heart and soul translates to, “Controller”, and in the wide commercial and popular audience, the controller is favored over the creator, and this is never really a subject to much controversy is it? It’s because at it’s heart and soul of things, although one may be favored over the other, the credibility does not matter, because the true victor has credited themselves with the knowledge of the truth. I will tell you that the writer is both the creator and the controller, and who, in all history of absolutely everything and in everyone’s knowledge is both controller and creator? God right? And his peasants either choose a path of controller or creator, and the only that ever achieve both (and you may try and prove me wrong but I won’t hear it because you can’t talk to a book) are writers, and who did I say is the only controller and creator? Does that mean some humans have achieved holiness amongst their peers? Is it opinion based? Do I really care? Or do I really know? The problem here is that both Sean and Axl wrote the script, and that both were unknowingly fighting for the place of God. And only one didn’t care.

2016.04.20 03:58 s100181 Run Bambi Run: A precursor to the Avery case, where an individual also in Wisconsin who tried to punish law enforcement found themselves framed for murder and locked away for life.

Laurie Bembenek was a Wisconsin woman who joined the Milwaukee PD in 1980. While at the training academy, Bembenek befriended a female officer named Judy Zess. Zess was arrested for smoking marijuana at a rock concert; Bembenek was fired from the PD for smoking pot and filing a false report on Zess’ arrest. This seemed unfair to Bembenek. In her autobiography she describes the MPD as composed of “brutal, lazy apathetic and corrupt” police officers. She claimed that females and minority officers were unfairly targeted and punished for offenses that white male officers often went unpunished for.
Around the time of her firing she met and married Fred Schultz, a 13 year veteran of the MPD. Schultz had recently divorced his wife, Christine.
Prior to Bembenek being fired, she discovered photographs of fellow officers dancing nude at a party sponsored by a local bar. Pics can be seen here, somewhat SFW, naughty bits are blacked out:
http://lauriebembenek.blogspot.com/2010/12/part-5.html
She took the photos to Internal Affairs and became MPD enemy #1. A federal investigation was initiated against the chief of police for discrimination and missuse of affirmative action funds. As part of the investigation the photographer who shot the pics was interviewed; this was in February of 1981.
On May 28, 1981, at approximately 2:15am, Fred Schultz's ex-wife Christine was murdered in her Milwaukee home. Christine Schultz had been killed by a single .38 caliber pistol shot fired point-blank into her back and through her heart. She had been gagged and blindfolded and her hands were tied in front of her with rope.
Ballistics revealed Fred Schultz’s off duty revolver was the murder weapon. Fred Schultz was alibied as he was at a local bar the night of the murder drinking with his partner. Bembenek had access to the weapon, a key to Christine’s home (via Fred), had no alibi (she claimed she was home all night alone), and per the prosecution, a motive. They painted Bembenek as a “loose woman” addicted to expensive living and killed Christine so her husband would no longer have to pay alimony.
The evidence was damning. Besides the gun, Judy Zess stated Bembenek spoke of killing Christine, hairs belonging to Bembenek were found on the body, a wig found in the plumbing system of Bembenek’s apartment matched fibers found at the murder scene. A boutique employee testified Bembenek bought such a wig shortly before the murder.
However…
Zess later recants her testimony stating it was made to the prosecution under duress.
Bembenek argues why would she be so dumb as to store the murder weapon in her own home? Wouldn't she get rid of it? Further, ten years after the case a forensics expert compared the muzzle of the off-duty gun to the entry wound on the victim. They did not match. Additionally, the barrel of the gun had no blood on it despite the fact that the victim was shot at close range.
Never disclosed to Bembenek’s defense was Chuck Kroeger who vividly remembers the night Schultz was killed. Kroeger was a city electrician working near the crime scene. He saw a man jogging late that night. Kroeger reported it to the police the next day, and was shocked by the response he says he got.
"I called right away, and they told me that they had their suspect and they didn't need any more information," he recalled. "They said, they had their suspect, so...."
Police also say they found two of Bembenek's blond hairs on the bandana used to gag the victim. But Dr. Elaine Saumels, the deputy medical examiner who conducted the autopsy on Christine Schultz, said someone must have planted those hairs in an evidence bag, after the autopsy was done.
At the autopsy Samuels found 2 hairs consistent with those belonging to the victim. The hair evidence was then sent to the crime lab in Madison and examined by a Diane Hansen who claimed she found 2 hairs that matched hairs recovered from Bembenek’s hairbrush. Samuels was appalled, telling the Toronto Star "I recovered no blonde or red hairs of any length or texture ... [A]ll of the hairs I recovered from the body were brown and were grossly identical to the hair of the victim ... [I] do not like to suggest that evidence was altered in any way, but I can find no logical explanation for what amounted to the mysterious appearance of blonde hair in an envelope that contained no such hair at the time it was sealed by me."
Then there was the red wig. The apartment where Bembenek and Fred Schultz lived shared drainage with another apartment. In the shared drainpipe was found a brownish-red wig which matched some of the hairs found on the victim's body. The woman who occupied the other apartment testified that Judy Zess had knocked on her door and asked to use her bathroom; after Zess used the woman's bathroom, the plumbing was mysteriously clogged. Zess had also admitted to owning a brownish-red wig.
Christine’s 11 year old son, Sean, stated that he saw the assailant, a masked male figure in an army jacket with a long red ponytail.
Despite all of this Bembenek was found guilty by a jury and sentenced to life in prison.
Do you see similarities here? Both Avery and Bembenek:
Bembenek’s case has a bittersweet ending. In 1990 she escaped from prison and became something of a national folk hero (Run, Bambi, run!) . She was apprehended in Canada; the Canadian government showed some sympathy for her case and before returning her to WI obtained a commitment that Milwaukee officials would conduct a judicial review of her case.
The review did not find evidence of crimes by police or prosecutors (go DOJ!), but detailed seven major police blunders which had occurred during the Christine Schultz murder investigation, and she won the right to a new trial.
Bembenek voluntarily returned to the United States on April 22, 1991. Rather than risk a second conviction, however, Bembenek pleaded no contest to second-degree murder during a hearing held on December 9, 1992. She was sentenced to 20 years which was commuted to time served. She was released from custody three hours after the hearing having served a little over ten years.
Anyway, I wanted to do a primer on the Bembenek case because it has been mentioned a few times with regards to how people who go up against law enforcement can find themselves charged with murder.
Edit: Added factual details provided from Unidenline2.

2013.07.25 04:59 LupaTheWolf Prom Capture the Flag Summary Part Two

SEE PART ONE HERE
Joe sat at one corner of the dance floor hidden from anyone, Riley standing behind him.
Riley: Well, did it work?
Joe: Everything is according to plan.
They now both stood infront of a large control board which seemed to be powered by lava.
Riley: But is it going to work?
Joe: Have I ever failed you? A smirk grew on Joe's face
Riley: Welp there's a first for everything
They both laughed and watched the commotion of the new fighters.
Joe: Alright, it just needs to power up.
The whole camp was lined up, boys on one side, girls on the other, both sides staring the other side down, neither side sure if they where enjoying the view or waiting for the first move to be made.
All at once Sean screamed out FOR NARNIA. Everyone took this as a cue to begin the attack and so they did.
Girlfriends fighting Boyfriends, people fighting people, NPCs fighting NPCs. All crap broke loose on the dance floor. Sophie hit Joss and came back around to slash Ixion who was fighting Jolie and Elpis was in the middle staying out of it but Henry couldn't help get in some action while fighting Pinfree who was sad that he couldn't find his girlfriend because she refused to be in the summary but instead was fighting Rose who was trying to fight Anthony but couldn't quite make her way to him because he was fighting Gwen and Thomas who had teamed up against Isha and Steven for some reason even though Luke and Anna where fighting right in the middle of them and Logan was being hit all the time by Quinn but was trying to pay attention to Grace but couldn't do a very good job because of Tristan and Evelyn who seemed to be working together but Caleb nor Batia where sure of their doings because Erick Cormac and Chris where hunting down Ally, Clara, and Madeline all the while Ixion Lilie Adam David and Henry H. where trying to take care of some wounded campers on their team but where also fighting trying to not let the opposing medics do their job even though Steven and Avery and Madeline and Jenna and thomas and Bree and Brenden and Ryan and Kira from the Athena cabin had forgotten their orders and had started randomly singing, but their song was disturbed by Zach Winters and Jaxson accompioned by Gretzky and Jason who where attacking Emerald but Emerald didn't care because she was with Michaela and Marissa making small talk and holding back Thesues Coburn and Keith who where attacking next to Jason O. and Mathew Scott and Branon and Sean and Barry and Marianne who where all summoning water and splashing everyone and McKenzie and Aria got mad so they started attacking the Poseidon campers but where held back by Stone and Andrew and Sky and Jason but they here struggling because of the vines called by Isha and Beckett but to the Zeus kids' help came Joshua D. Chris James Patrick Leon Laron and Nathan from the Hermes cabin sporting flying shoes but chasing after them also in flying shoes where Cara and Ava even though Logan B. Jaime Evan Tej Logan H. and Dante where chasing after them but they couldn't chase fast enough before Alex Mathew and Pinfree got to them and suddenly Desmond yelled stop and Katelynn Clint and Dormio did the same in hopes that everyone would fall asleep but Livia was quick and yelled out No so Luke T. and Gwen and Julian and Jessamine and Kiba and Luke J. and Dylan and Liam and Geoff and Henry A. and Mae and Oliver and Jolie and Sophie and Astrid and Violet and Grace and Ruby and Benjamin and a Toby who kept shouting "WE'VE BEEN HAD" and Bret and Kylie and Xorkia kept fighting all in that order attacking the other gender in a showdown that seemed to be ultimate and destiny-involved.
Joe and Riley watched the commotion as the machine finally warmed up.
Riley: Is it done yet? They're slowing down, it might be time.
Joe: Yep.
Joe grabbed an Xbox controller in one hand and in the other two Wii remotes. Slowly a huge shiny sphere hung from a string that seemed to be connected to just about no where.
Campers stopped fighting with ultimate confusion as speakers jotted out of the forest and began to play Michael Bublé. Campers began to drop their weapons do to pure tiredness as couples looked at each other.
Everyone gained their partner, the person their heart was with. Slowly the music changed (seriously listen to this song while reading this last part otherwise the mood will not be right :p) and everyone began slow dancing with their either significant other, or their soon to be.
Joe and Riley came out of the forest and Joe quietly said to Riley "I've been told to ask the prettiest girl to dance tonight... may I?"
Riley blushed and the two began to dance just as everyone else did, almost choreographed.
Charlotte viewed over the tree tops to the dance floor and the romance that was happening until she grabbed a wrong limb, fell, and rolled right into the guy she wanted to dance with.
Octavian soon came to the farthest corner of the dance floor having heard the music, holding the girls' flag, "WHAT ARE YOU GUYS DOING? FIGHT! THIS IS SUPPOSED TO BE CAPTURE THE FLAG!"
Everyone stared at their partner, (even Autumn came out for this), everyone having someone, including those who have had troubles or hard ship or don't feel attractive or those who don't think they could ever find someone, everyone. They kept dancing, looking into each other's eyes, dancing ever so slightly.
Suddenly Chiron came over the speakers booming AND THE BOYS HAVE WON- wait- are you guys having
