Let's talk a Finnish icon: The Ismo Alanko primer

2020.09.19 17:52 creatinsanivity Let's talk a Finnish icon: The Ismo Alanko primer

I was challenged into writing a primer on one of Finland's primary songwriters of all time by u/Zhanteimi at the LetsTalkMusic discord. So here's an album-by-album runthrough of his career!
Context
No artist's career begins with the first album, so naturally nor did Alanko's. Long story short, he was born in a highly artistic family (mother a poet, all siblings musicians), picked cello as his instrument of choice, found rock (especially the Hurriganes debut) and picked a guitar, wrote his first song 'Suck and Fuck All Night Long' (no recordings of this exist, but apparently one of his bands named itself after the song), and formed a number of bands with varying levels of success. His most succesful pre-Hassisen Kone band was a prog band called Sight, which got on the second place in the prog section of Finnish Rock Championship competition (in 1977 or 1978). After he finished high school in the spring of 1979, he moved to Stockholm for the summer. This turned out to be the decision that became the catalyst for huge parts of his career, including...
Hassisen Kone - Täältä tullaan Venäjä
While in Stockholm, Alanko caught wind of a new wave of rock beginning in Finland. A breath of fresh air in the previously stale rock scene. He returned to Joensuu and put together a band from his bandmates from Sight (Reijo Heiskanen and Harri Kinnunen), and Harri's then 17-year-old brother Jussi. They eventually named the band Hassisen Kone, after a sewing machine store in town (the deeply religious shopkeeper was not amused).
The band recorded an album-length demo in 1979 and were signed on a label relatively quickly. They were also qualified to enter the 1980 Finnish Rock Championship competition (even though the judges nearly disqualified them, for they thought they might be professional musicians performing under fake names), which they won, gaining reputation preceding the recording of their debut album.
In August of 1980, the band released Täältä tullaan Venäjä. Propelled by arguably the biggest hit single in Alanko's career, Rappiolla [which was hilariously covered by Metallica recently (which was spontaneously responded to by Ismo Alanko himself)], the album became a smash hit. The album provides variety from straight-up new wave punk to talkingheadsian grooves, schlager punk, simplified swing jazz, ska-infused rock, to whatever you'd categorise 'Viimeinen rock ennen aivokuolemaa' as. It's an ambitious yet consistent whole but, in my opinion, the weakest of the three Hassisen Kone albums. The youthful anarchic feel it has can be refreshing every now and then, but this burst of energy from an obviously young (only two of the bandmembers even in their 20s, band only half a year old) band is redirected better on the follow-up.
Hassisen Kone - Rumat sävelet
Following the release of their debut, the band found themselves in a position that many acts today would both fear and envy: they played hundreds of gigs in the second half of 1980 and the first half of 1981. The gruesome touring around the country took a toll on the young band, but that's only barely comparable to the toll that the audience took on them. For example, as time went by, the band grew tired of the audience drunkenly demanding 'Rappiolla', so they stopped playing the song altogether. This time of maturing and growing more and more cynical reflected on their sophomore effort.
Rumat sävelet should not necessarily be described as bleak per se, but it is certainly darker, tighter, and more mature than the band's debut. The band tackles sounds ranging from quasi-prog expression to post-punk, punk, psychobilly, and they take the talkingheadsian qualities into a sharper direction. The lyrics touch upon issues like love, exploitation, and sex (it's curious to think that probably the most explicit Finnish song about sex before this album was about "curly armpit hair", while Alanko dares to sing about penetration itself). I have to admit that I have a bit of a bias when it comes to this one though, as it's undoubtedly my favourite album of all time.
Hassisen Kone - Harsoinen teräs (and High Tension Wire)
In 1981, the band participated on a riverboat tour with a couple of other punk acts. During this tour, the bassist broke (drugs), Alanko met "Safka" Pekkonen, and the band was generally put under huge stress as the diet consisting mainly of alcohol began burning them down and their every move was documented by either film makers Mika and Aki Kaurismäki or the columnist documenting the tour for a zine. Despite all this, some of the better live recordings of the band come from this tour, and both the live album and the Kaurismäki documentary are worth digging up for the music.
After the tour, the band expanded into a septet with the addition of a keyboardist (Pekkonen), a saxophonist (Antti Seppo), and a percussionist (Hannu Porkka). The final form of the band was shaped during the rehearsals by the departure of guitarist Heiskanen, who was replaced by the guitar wizard Jukka Orma.
Released in March of 1982, Harsoinen teräs is the band's most artistically ambitious work. It's an album combining the band's prog leanings seamlessly with the band's new wave leanings, a polished whole that takes cues from I don't even know where. Reggae at least on a couple of tracks, prog and new wave on most, but the general sound is unlike anything I've ever encountered. The album was re-recorded in English as High Tension Wire later on in the year, after a tour had slightly tightened the band's sound. The decision to do so apparently came after the decision to disband the band, which makes it a very baffling addition to Hassisen Kone's discography. You'd think that they'd release an album in English as an attempt to break into international markets, right?
Sielun Veljet - Sielun Veljet
After Hassisen Kone was disbanded (in August 1982), Alanko had a schlager rock project that eventually turned into Sielun Veljet by December. The band was comprised of Alanko, Orma, a drummer veteran Alf Forsman, Alanko's Stockholm contact Jouko Hohko on bass, Vinski Viholainen doing lighting, and a future cult legend Jouni Mömmö doing "weird noises".
Sielun Veljet were signed in early 1983, but they refused to record a studio album because Viholainen's lighting work wouldn't show in a studio recording. Instead, as a compromise, they agreed on recording a live album where "the lighting would affect the ambiance". They set out to do this on a tour they began on March, planning on recording the first show and the last one. However, fate interfered and Orma accidentally cut tendons from his fingers during the tour while cutting bread, which made the recordings from the last show basically unusable due to his difficulties in adjusting to the situation (a very punk move to finish the tour even with torn tendons, by the way).
The live album is punk/post-punk goodness. It's noisy, no-wavey rock that really shows how the band took all the drugs in the process of writing these harsh, repetitive songs. It also shows that Alanko wished to abandon messing around with intricate compositions in favour of a more stripped and primal expression.
Sielun Veljet - Lapset
In summer of 1983, the band brightened up a bit to record this odd EP in a style following directly from the debut. It's angular and distorted, yet the melodies are more melodic and jamming less bleak. It's also the home of the only a capella punk song I've ever heard.
Sielun Veljet - Hei soturit
In 1984, Sielun Veljet took their first coherent step toward a pop/rock idiom with their first studio album. Hei soturit is the awkward outlier between the band's grimy punk era and commercial rock era. It feels like a punk band working with a producer who doesn't understand punk, but even the clumsy production doesn't entirely hide the fact that some of these songs are absolutely iconic. From punk to garage rock, general oddness, and flirting even with metal, this selection of songs does provide good variety for anyone digging deeper in Alanko's body of work.
Sielun Veljet - L'amourha
The Sielun Veljet breakthrough album! The beginning of their rock era of albums, an only mildly angular affair with anthemic choruses and a muscular production. It was recorded after the band had toured all over Europe, honing their sound and Alanko finding a lot to say about international affairs and the human condition.
There are a plenty of anecdotes from the time of release of this album. The song 'On mulla unelma' was written by Alanko in Spain, when he was recovering from a disease (can't remember which one. Dysentery?) and bitter about nationalism, and it caused quite a scandal when the band unexpectedly debuted it on live television. They performed an impromptu Red Riding Hood play on their album release party instead of playing music. One of the members went missing in Russia for days after the band found a corpse. All of their instruments were stolen in Spain. There'd a lot to unpack from 1984-5 alone.
Sielun Veljet - Kuka teki huorin
The follow-up to L'amourha takes the band to a funkier place. It's a minor downgrade from the previous effort, a slightly directionless and overpolished effort that has diverse variety from RHCP-like funk rock to tango-infused rock, tribal chants, and what's essentially watered down imitation of their earlier work. It's an easy album to criticise, yet I don't find ever to be outright bad. A lot of it is extremely forgettable though
L'amourder - Ritual and Shit-Hot
Sielun Veljet recorded a bunch of their songs in English as L'amourder. Most of them follow the originals very closely, but there are a few surprises. The biggest change is on the translation of 'Tuulelta vastauksen saan', which has been turned into a cover of Bob Dylan's 'Blowin' in the Wind'.
Sielun Veljet - Suomi - Finland
Suomi - Finland begins the last era of the band, as this album brings more acoustic instruments to the mix and begins to flirt with psychedelia in a way that will culminate on the follow-up. It feels like a breaking point for the band, as it sprawls on multiple directions at once, the musicians seemingly having lost focus. It feels like a band slowly drifring apart, yet it remains consistently captivating as the different influences come together in this chaotic work.
"Various Artists" - Onnenpyörä
Sielun Veljet performed under a number of false identities on their Onnenpyörä-tour, four of which make an appearance on this recording. All of these are cover bands of sorts, and each one of them had a different repertoire of songs they played on these wildly differing sets. The most noteworthy of these personae are the pavillion dance band Kullervo Kivi ja Gehenna-yhtye and the rock band Leputation of the Slaves, the two having the most songs on the record.
Sielun Veljet - Softwood Music Under Slow Pillars
Who would have thought that the noisy punk band in 1983 would eventually release what could be called a psychedelic flamenco album in 1989? Many factors come together here, as the band continues on their effort to sell their music internationally by making the biggest left turn in memory. Orma's fascination with flamenco combines here with influences Alanko picked up in India and what could be called a somewhat logical progression from the budding psychedelia of Suomi - Finland. It's a weird album, that's for sure. A bit inconsistent, but easily among the strangest albums I've ever heard.
Ismo Alanko - Kun Suomi putos puusta
In 1990, Alanko found himself in a situation where Sielun Veljet had almost run its course and he could finally start building a solo career. He recorded this solo debut as a quasi-concept album about rural flight, combining the various interest he wasn't able to pursue with the band into a unique singesongwriter album of sorts. It's a classic album and, in some ways, an ideal entry point into Alanko's work as it feels like it's his personal expression in its purest form.
The music on the album sounds mainly like pop rock of sorts, but it also takes cues from melancholic singesongwriter stuff, joyous showtunes, post-punk akin to Nick Cave's work, and some field recording experiments. It finds a good balance between artistic ambition and catchiness, and it's home to some of the most iconic tracks in Ismo Alanko songbook.
Sielun Veljet - Musta laatikko
Do you know Tom Waits' Orphans? This one is kind of like that. Three discs filled with random stuff recorded over years.
The first disc, "Muistinmenetys", is one third a new studio album (very weird new direction to take, something that feels like a cross between chill hippie jamming and 80s dance pop), one third music from some production, and one third short excerpts from live performances. The second disc, "Taudinkuva", is mainly live performances of late 80s Sielun Veljet songs, Tuomari Nurmio covers, and some other oddities. And finally, the third disc, "Isältä pojalle", is a full pavillion dance set, the band LARPing as a suave and jazzy house band playing waltz, tango, schlager, and anything that's really expected of them.
This album is definitely a skippable one, but there are a few gems that an Ismo Alanko fan might get a lot out of. The flamenco pieces are cool, the Tuomari Nurmio covers are nice (more about those later), and that pavillion dance set is unexpectedly fun, especially if you're not already familiar with the tradition.
Ismo Alanko - Jäätyneitä lauluja
Alanko goes electronic! This album was originally lauded as cutting edge and a sign of significant artistic growth, but it has definitely fallen in popularity over the years. It sounds extremely like a product of its time, so if you like non-industrial synthpop-y rock from 90s, this is exactly your thing. Overall, it's still very surprising how many Alanko live staples come from this album though, and how some of his live bands have improved on all of them.
Ismo Alanko - Taiteilijaelämää
If someone doesn't think that Kun Suomi putos puusta is Alanko's magnum opus, they usually pick this one. Taiteilijaelämää feels like a combination of the first two solo albums (acoustic, electric, and electronic joining hands in harmony), but brought into the mid-90s rock idiom. The result is an interesting album that lacks real highs but remains consistently accessible, and the one Ismo Alanko work I've heard to have resonated with Beck fans for some reason.
Ismo Alanko - I-r-t-i
I made the mistake of learning that this album was written in only two weeks (because Alanko wanted to test himself), and now that's all I can think of while listening to it. This does feel halfbaked. The accessible rock sound it has is underproduced and covers up lazy songwriting more than once. That said, Alanko has later on proven that some of these songs can be absolutely amazing live, and the demo-like quality many of these tracks have can be seen as a feature instead of a bug. Pushing its flaws aside, I feel that it is underappreciated as an album, and feel like its high points deserve more attention.
Ismo Alanko Säätiö - Pulu
Säätiö was an interesting group. I'm honestly still a bit unclear whether they should be considered Alanko's backing band, a band that just happened to capitalise on his name, or a fullblown collective of musicians. Alanko's statements concerning the group together with the changing lineups on Säätiö albums both point to all three options. What I do know is that the band has two distinct eras, the first one kickstarted by Pulu.
I genuinely believe that the first iterarion of Säätiö is the most important band Alanko worked with. The amount of pure talent in that band is staggering with Jussi Kinnunen (Hassisen Kone) on bass, Teho Majamäki (HC Andersen, Tapani Rinne, Ismo Alanko Teholla) on percussion, Kimmo Pohjonen (you will want to check his solo stuff) on accordion, and Marko Timonen (Värttinä, Tuomari Nurmio) on drums giving Alanko's songwriting a fascinating folk rock spin, reeking of schlager and eastern mysticism. Pulu is an album that seeps nostalgia, is radical enough to upset traditional folk nerds, is accessible enough to have produced multiple Alanko live staples, and is significant enough a twist on Alanko's tropes to sound fresh even in his eclectic body of work. Yet, I feel like it's so self-referential that I feel like recommending it as anyone's first Ismo Alanko album could be a mistake.
Ismo Alanko Säätiö - Luonnossa
Säätiö playing acoustic renditions from the entire Ismo Alanko songbook, from Täältä tullaan Venäjä to Pulu. An exciting set, and definitely one of the best live albums I've ever heard. The band reworks this wide variety of songs into captivating folk rock, transforming the music into forms that defy expectations. There are some duds though, but not all fan favourites can sound great with just one band.
Ismo Alanko Säätiö - Sisäinen solarium
This is possibly the weirdest Ismo Alanko album to this date. It continues with nearly the same lineup as on Pulu, but takes the music in a radically new direction, exploring what modernised folk could be rather than wallowing on nostalgia. This means updating the largely acoustic instrumentation with both electric and electronic instruments, and creating an unpredictable tapestry of music with influences that are surprisingly difficult to pinpoint. Some say this kind of experimentation cheapens traditional folk (which is something I can agree with regarding some songs on this album), but I'm not sure if such a clearcut statement can be made of the full album. It's certainly aiming for a sound of its own.
Ismo Alanko Säätiö - Hallanvaara
This is where Säätiö's status as a band becomes complicated. There's absolutely no reason to call this anything but an Ismo Alanko solo album, so marketing it as an Ismo Alanko Säätiö album is baffling to say the least. I mean, the only constants on this album are Alanko himself, the producemulti-instrumentalist Riku Mattila, and various symphonic elements (I don't want to downplay the work the symphonic orchestra and the string section do on this album, but they have been used quite haphazardly). There are three members from the previous Säätiö albums involved in this project: Marko Timonen on nine tracks, Samuli Laiho on seven tracks, and Kimmo Pohjonen on one track. In addition to this, there's the bassist of the next iteration of Säätiö, Jarno Karjalainen, on six tracks. Thus, there are Säätiö band members playing on the majority of these tracks, but never as a full band.
That all being said, I believe this to be the best Säätiö album. The melancholic pieces are beautifully fragile, the pop tracks are catchy, the massive songs are massive, and the atmospheric pieces are chillingly well-arranged. And even the weaker songs here are excellent live, making this album probably the richest one to mine for a live set of any kind.
Ismo Alanko Säätiö - Elävää musiikkia
Honestly, this feels like a bit of a throwaway live album. On one hand, these rock renditions of a great setlist of songs are unique but, on the other hand, none of these performances improve on the studio recordings. 'Kansallispäivä' and 'Julkinen eläin' come really close though, both being sharper and meaner than the 80s versions.
Ismo Alanko Säätiö - Minä ja pojat
The first album with the second iteration of the band. Fuzzy rock in similar vein to Smashing Pumpkins and their kin, but played through the lense of Alanko's style of songwriting. It's never as hard-hitting or catchy as an album by a great rock band would be -- all of the songs soften up during the chorus -- but the youthful and slightly naivistic touch is welcome after a string of artistically ambitious albums. That said, I'm only attached to a single song on the whole album, which is definitely not a good sign.
Ismo Alanko Säätiö - Ruuhkainen taivas
The second (and last) studio album of the second iteration of Säätiö is a different beast than the first one, taking the rock approach to a slightly more complex direction. It's more mature and chromatic than the first album, yet I personally find it to sound slightly less inspired. However, at the same time, it does have more tracks that I would consider keepers and the general sound is harder to define. Thus, it's definitely a divisive album, conflicting.
I'm not sure how to describe the sound of this album. It's unmistakeably early 2000s rock, sounding like an average Finnish rock band from the era, yet the songwriting and the production also remind me of the band Wire out of all things. It's a digestible alternative/indie rock sound, whenever it doesn't abruptly go in a new direction.
Sielun Veljet - Otteita Tuomari Nurmion laulukirjasta
Remember those random Tuomari Nurmio covers on Musta Laatikko? Turns out, Sielun Veljet recorded a full album of those in (I assume) late 80s. They didn't end up using those recordings for anything, so they were packed away and stored somewhere. Years went by and a good portion of those recordings were destroyed due to poor storing conditions, but someone was eventually inspired to put the surviving songs to good use.
You'll be in for a treat, if you like Sielun Veljet and have never heard anything by Tuomari Nurmio. Most of these covers are originally from Nurmio's early 80s albums, his strange new wave turned into the angular rock Sielun Veljet perfected. Some of these songs only barely work, some sound like Sielun Veljet originals, but most are just serviceable covers. It's still a good album though.
Ismo Alanko Teholla - Blanco spirituals
After putting Säätiö on hold (perhaps indefinitely), Alanko joined forces with Teho Majamäki, the first iteration Säätiö percussionist. Together they stripped down a number of Ismo Alanko songbook staples to a form they could perform as a duo, essentially bringing the strengths of Alanko's live performances alone together with the strengths of him performing with a small ensemble. This endeavour proved succesful, so the two recorded two albums of original music as well.
The music of Blanco spirituals is surprisingly full. The two musicians fill space well, with Alanko singing and playing chord instruments (mainly guitar and piano), while Majamäki stretches himself as thin as possible, working a drumset, vibes, an array of percussions, an oscillating delay pedal, and singing backing vocals. It's usually at least two of those at the same time, often three. Him working in a live environment is a sight to behold.
This is honestly one of my favourite Ismo Alanko albums. The stripped down arrangements bring the most out of Alanko's songwriting. The selection of songs highlight very different sides of his style, from theatrical piano ballads to singalong acoustic guitar romps, silly pop songs, and trance-inducing rock. It's by no means a perfect album, but these simple songs all work in one way or another.
Sielun Veljet - Kansan parissa (1-4)
Archival live recordings of sets recorded around 1989-1991. The first one is a typical Sielun Veljet set, the second one filled with Tuomari Nurmio covers, the third one is material from Softwood Music Under Slow Pillars, and the fourth one is a mix of subtle experimentation, new tracks, and deep cuts. Quite a comprehensive collection of live music. However, only few tracks are really worth keeping, including the electrifying high-tempo performance of 'Lammassusi' and the prototypical version of Alanko's 'Don Quiote'.
Ismo Alanko Teholla - Onnellisuus
The simplicity of the previous album is gone, replaced by a polished and highly produced pop sound. The DIY duo sound gives way to a more layered style, where synths, samples, and doubled vocals are added to the band's sound. Acoustic instruments are largely replaced by electric guitars and synths, turning the folksy garage band sound to a sleak and radio-friendly beast. If the fact that I just phrased the same exact thing in three ways didn't clue you in yet, I'm not particularly fond of this change of direction. However, I've seen this ridiculously often called the best Ismo Alanko album since the 90s, so it does appeal to the masses.
If you like 2010s pop and are looking for a decent gateway to Alanko's music, this could be the album to start with. It's accessible.
Hassisen Kone - 20 vuotta myöhemmin
Hassisen Kone had a reunion in 2000. They played a show that was both filmed and recorded. It's an interesting document of musicians playing music they wrote 20 years earlier. However, it ultimately sounds a bit tired compared to both the tight playing on their studio recordings and the energy levels on their 80s live recordings.
Ismo Alanko - Maailmanlopun sushibaari
Remember when I said that most pick between Kun Suomi putos puusta and Taiteilijaelämää as Alanko's magnum opus? Well, this is that one for me. I'm not saying that to imply that it would be his best album, but it's the album where he finally brings his disparate influences together in a coherent but eclectic way. If Kun Suomi putos puusta is where Alanko's artistic voice is at its purest, this is where it is at its maturest and most representative of the multi-faceted artist he has become during his career.
More or less incidentally, this is also Alanko's midlife crisis album. It's not entirely thematic -- who even knows what 'Kuusilmä' is about? -- but it does touch upon themes like growing old, dying, passing the torch, losing one's touch, and liking the colour grey. It's not quite on the nose, but you don't exactly have to dissect the lyrics to find those undercurrents.
So what does the album sound like? It's lighter than you'd imagine based on the central themes. There's rock, funk, subtle latin feel, a capella, pop, traditional folk, and even an ambitious rock opera about what sounds like a zombie apocalypse. It's fairly eclectic, making it a nice first solo album to release in nearly two decades.
Ismo Alanko - 33 1/3: Kolmannesvuosisata taiteilijaelämää
This is the Ismo Alanko live album I recommend people to start with. Are these performances as exciting as their studio versions? No. But I'd argue that they don't have to be. The main strength this recording has is its uniformity. The songs are played in a generic rock band style, but it doesn't change the fact that the setlist is good and diverse. There's no compilation that would dive this deep in such a digestible manner. Essentially, this is the middle-of-the-road pick that gives an excellent cursory look into a prolific artist's entire body of work (up until 2013).
Ismo Alanko - Ismo Kullervo Alanko
Considering how introspective and self-reflective the previous album is, it's surprising that Alanko decided to name this one after himself. It works though. The songs are produced sparser and airier than on any other Ismo Alanko album, making the music feel intimate and almost confessional. It feels like you're sitting in the same room with him, as he opens up to you. Amazingly produced album.
Ismo Alanko - Pannaanko pakasteet pieneen pussiin?
To be frank, I don't think this EP is an essential release. It's noteworthy for the modern hobo blues feel it has, and for having one of the very few covers Alanko has recorded so far, but none of these songs have an iconic feel to them. The best I can say about it is that none of the songs are bad, but neither are they memorable.
Ismo Alanko - Yksin Vanhalla
I wish more band-focused artists performed live alone every now and then. An arrangement stripped down to just vocals and an instrument (in Alanko's case, usually acoustic guitar, piano, or cello) turns every song into something entirely different. However, the lyrics grow in significance as instruments are dropped, so your mileage may vary with this one. I still enjoy it though.
Pohjonen Alanko - Northern Lowland
Alanko collaborates with Kimmo Pohjonen and Tuomas Norvio to bring us an electronic neon-shamanic album. Primal chants and vocalisations blending together with beats ranging from harsh to chill and breakbeat-y. It's a fascinating EP, even if highly gimmicky and lacking a sense of direction. Besides, this stuff will always be better live than on a studio recording.
Ismo Alanko - Minä halusin olla niin kuin Beethoven
And finally, the latest Ismo Alanko album, where he takes yet another left turn. This one was mainly recorded by Alanko alone in a studio, but eventually a drummer and a keyboardist were brought in to round up the sound. And what a sound it is! Youthful indie rock with a production that's stuck somewhere between the 00s and the 80s. If it were not for 58-year-old Alanko's vocals and eccentric riffing, I could very well believe this to be a debut album by ambitious 20-somethings.
Summary
Since Alanko's full albums are not readily available on many countries (especially the US), I'll provide a summary that's somewhere between a longish TL;DR, a series of recommendations, and a quick-glance overview of his career.

Discussion
What is your opinion on Ismo Alanko? I personally enjoy how prolific and eclectic he has been, and I find it a shame that most of his work has never left Finland. I can especially imagine punk fans easily getting into his 80s work.

2020.09.17 12:43 DrunkSoraka M+ in Shadowlands

THE FACTS

M14 will provide the top-end reward from the Weekly Great Vault at an ilvl of 226. AKA, you only need to progress M14 for the best weekly chest rewards. If you complete 10 M14s (or greater) you will be offered 3/9 choices of 226 gear from your Weekly Great Vault, please see the Preach M+ Footage below for an accurate picture.
 
M15 will provide the best end-of-the-dungeon rewards that are capped at 210 ilvl.
 
Heroic Raids will offer boss loot at 213 ilvl with the last two bosses offering 220 ilvl.
 
Mythic Raids will offer boss loot at 226 ilvl with the last two bosses offering 233 ilvl.
 

TITANFORGING is no longer a thing, this is FORGOTTEN IN THESE DISCUSSIONS.

MODIFIED GEAR SYSTEMS (Tier, Relics, Azerite Traits, Essences, Corruption), are ALSO not available for the first time EVER since M+ release -- with titanforging THESE ARE THE MOST RELEVANT FACTORS IN THIS DISCUSSION.

Sources: Preach M+ Footage
WoWHead Article Dated 09/16/2020 4:33 AM

IMMEDIATE TAKE-AWAYS

>The Heroic Longevity and Shelf-Life Buff

First and foremost, this change is undoubtedly a targeted nerf towards high-ranking Mythic guilds that would spam M+ in the first week of availability in order to effectively trade gear obtained in the first Heroic raid. This most likely does not significantly affect second-week heroic splits (if such a thing exists), and overall only affects first-week efficiency. Furthermore, this extends the shelf-life of heroic raids (is this necessary?) and thereby extends the shelf-life of the tier as a whole. One thing to be noted here is the fact that such a change only negatively targets those who perform heroic splits (a minority among a minority), and by consequence affects those who act otherwise, by nerfing gear availability.

>Interest in M+

First and foremost, it is important to recognize that until this point M+ rewards have not existed without titanforging and modified gear systems. For literally the first time in history, we have an M+ system that pound-for-pound competes on simply ilvl with mythic raids. There is no titanforging, no azerite traits, no tier, no essences, nothing whatsoever. Whereas before you could expect to obtain a relevant M+ piece by virtue of titanforging or modified gear systems, you can now expect to receive nothing of the sort. Why is this bad? Raid loot, by tradition, has been incentivized by virtue of the fact that it represents either strictly better effects (ala trinkets) or better modified gear systems (azerite traits, better relics, better corruption, and the existence of tier). Without the existence of such systems, M+ gear will simply be inferior because we are now only comparing ilvl to ilvl.
 
MOST IMPORTANTLY, with no gear incentive to push during off weeks, this change only further incentivizes M+ participants to only be concerned with traditionally understood push weeks. You can expect that the issues of M+ relevancy will only be exacerbated by these changes.

LATE TAKE-AWAYS

>I...Like It?

By limiting the amount of content that represents potential titanforges or potential modified gear systems (tier, relics, azerite traits, essences, corruptions), I actually enjoy the fact that I will be able to play a good amount of content and still represent the bis case scenario, without ultimately sacrificing my enjoyment of the game. I honestly never thought I would represent this opinion. Upon reflection, I've realized that my experience with the last two expansions was to grind as much player power (AP) possible by spamming world quests and M+ dungeons. As a result I would burn out, multiple times during the respective expansions, despite achieving top 10 world M+ runs.
 
I cannot speak for all of you, but I've always pushed towards classic systems in terms of progress with retail systems in terms of playability. I honestly think that current development recognizes that point, despite issues with covenants. That being said, there is some discussion behind what M+ loot represents, and hopefully we can iron out those kinks.

SITUATION
Map of AO
As the war ramps up, a distraction is introduced in the form of a second war in a not-so-far-away country. The local insurgents in Kunduz seize the opportunity to reorganise. An unknown insurgent is hailed as a "Genius", as he introduces home-made, dug-in concealed mines that can be remote detonated.
With their new technology and reorganisation, the insurgency is ready to strike back at the invaders in ways never seen before.
As the insurgents, it is your job to defeat these invaders and drive them back. The invaders are a conventional force, with greater strength, numbers, and guns. We still have most of the civilian population under our control, and they will provide us intelligence throughout the operation. We've already received word a coalition patrol is coming towards a small hamlet. Your cell has been deployed there.

......
Wait... By why
why... is it not bleeding?
This webtoon is recommended for 15 years or older
...isn't the reason why it's not bleeding
Sfx: dash
Our planet's body
has been developed to have an advantage at reassembling
Sfx: grab
Human's body is made to be the most disadvantageous to fight among all the living organisms on the earth
Sfx: clutch
By reassembling the body, we imitate other animals that are fit in fighting and become stronger
Sfx: wham
Stronger?!

Whoa... This dude know how to put up a fight
With assembling the body parts
Sfx: clench
and all the beatings this body took...
Our planet's gonna be in a serious pain once he wakes up

But my purpose is to win this fight

Why...? Were you dissatisfied?
Or... Were you in a bad mood?

(01:51AM)
(Pika)
3 tons
(01:51AM)
(Sa Neung)
Ah... Do you think it's easy to find
(01:59AM)
(Sa Neung)
Once it tries to hid it really difficult to track down
(01:59AM)
(Pika)
So are we gonna do nothing?
(01:59AM)
(Sa Neung)
Of course not
(02:00AM)
Sfx: ding ding

Whatever
I'll just tell them I arrested him because he's a desperado
......
Sfx: pierce
Is it not?
Am I the villain?
Sfx: pierce
Hehe
I see now
This man is also a planetary human
Right now
he's blending his blood with ours
This must be one of the ways to steal interplanetary resources
Sfx: appear
This is a first experience for us, a war against an exoplanet
That planet's planetary people are making their way here by riding the blood stream
I can hear it
First war
So uncivilized
Do you even have a writing system?
Compare to you, this is
the future
Sfx: clutch
We do as we planned
Hold him with the remaining right hand
It'll be troublesome if
Uh... Ughhh...!
that dude with a grandpa sweater were to escape
Second plan
Sfx: slop slop
As soon as the suppressing succeeds, the starting force tries to enter
The starting force will find the main artery which has a fast bloodsteam
Sfx: swoosh
and is expected to reach the heart in no time
(Arrived)
It's the heart
(asystole)
Ughh!
Sfx: wobble
How long can a planet stay fresh after one's heart stopped?
5 minutes
Sfx: clench
If the brain isn't supplied with oxygen for more than 5 minutes then it passes the expiration date and becomes spoiled
5 minutes. Enough time to get done with all of this and take cancer cells out for a walk
Now that the threat of the path getting destroyed is gone
Sfx: grumble
The 1st squad of the main force will be making a move
Let's take everything from them
Let's show these pathetic hillbillies what they will get for coming at us
Let's show these country bumpkins that doesn't have a single waiting line (?)
Uhh... Ughh...!!
what civilization really is
No
Don't come here
This...
This isn't a civilization
There's nothing here
Sfx: raise
(!!)
Sfx: wham
This wasn't a civilization that was lagging behind
It's not that their speed of growth is slow
Ugh!
Sfx: smack
This is a civilization that's climbing down after reaching the peak
huff
huff
Sfx: crumble
huff
Although it was an amply resplendent civilization
now it's a collapsing civilization
A dying planet
No!
★ hasn't returned yet!
Argh...!
Sfx: limp
Sfx: ripple
This is...?
Underwater?
Why am I underwater?
I was definitely getting beaten to a pulp...
Huh? A hand.
Someone's attempting to save me
Puu - Haaah
Cough
Cough
Cough cough
What is this place?
It was surely underwater...
Why am I running a hand through my hair as if I was feeling indifferent all of a sudden?
It's a long story to explain
Uhh... Huh! You...
Leave this place first
I'm being serious here
It's dangerous right now
We're in danger run
And...
Nevermind, run away first
I'll tell you later, as it's not important right now...
You're missing an arm
I think you were left handed
So I switched it and inserted it on your left side

SITUATION
Map of AO
Insert a generic story about a generic insurgency against BAF. You are the insurgents fighting BAF, though many sympathise with your cause, the majority feel your ways are too extreme.
The British army has been inserted to stem this insurgency, and they have announced they're not holding back - considering your earlier conduct (You've pretty much done some terrible things).
Outgunned and outnumbered (heavily), the leaders of the insurgency have decided to lay low for a while, causing BAF to lower their readiness and scaling back operations to patrols along the countryside. Now is the time to ambush these patrols as they pass through towns, valleys, and roads - the leadership is sure this will cause them to reconsider operations in the area.

This part of the repository, or the "vault" as I often call it when commenting on stats OCs, is currently composed of:
Feel free to butcher these statistics to own the [insert flair you're arguing against] or to make the 9999th snowclone of the "D E S P I T E" copypasta.

2020.08.05 18:47 Wolfprintz Dates on card art?

I haven't played in a while, so I updated my card database, and now there are dates in the corner of the art on a lot of cards, like so: http://puu.sh/GeJed/4eb915f44b.jpg
My friend doesn't see these, so I'm wondering if there's a different URL I can use that lacks the dates? I could just ignore it, but I'm very particular so ideally I'd like to get rid of them.

2020.07.30 00:11 Chainsaw__Monkey Respect Nemain(Gamma)

Name: Nathaira Faulkner
Alias: Nemain
Date of birth: 9/15/1990
Tier: Gamma
Alignment: I like killing people, I'm glad people pay for my passion
Intentions: This was fun to build
Appearance: 6'1, 170 lbs. Long red hair, fair skin and green eyes. Small scars in the left eyebrow, bridge of the nose and upper lip. Notches in both ears from damage. When acting as Nemain, she wears a black leather jacket with flared sleeves, black leather motorcycle pants, combat boots, metal gauntlets and a helmet, her hair comes out from the bottom of the helmet.
Background: Nathaira was borne in rural Montana to immigrant parents. Not poor immigrants mind you, the kind of people that came to invest in Montana's oil. She lived a relatively ordinary life, except for the hunting. Nathaira would lie and say she was going to a friend's house, and then go bowhunting for fun. Oh, there's also when she went to juvenile detention at age 13 for stabbing a boy who chose another girl over her. And the time she went to prison for Manslaughter at 19, when she hit pedestrian while drunk driving. And the time she was put on trial at age 25 for six murders, she beat the charges on that one.
And now she has superpowers and people willing to pay her to be herself... good luck everyone else.
Personality: Nathaira is a normal, perhaps a little bit less talkative, redneck woman... except for the extreme possessiveness and pathological desire to kill things.
Base of Operations: Mobile
Equipment/Resources: A multitude of passports and a large enough bank account that she can travel at will.
Powers:
  • Mode Switch Nemain may switch between forms, switching from Sealgair to Marbhadh takes 0.015 seconds without using Hover to move. Switching from Marbhadh to Sealgair takes 0.0035 seconds without using Hover to move. During the switch, attacks may still be made in the original form.
  • Hover Nemain may hover at 256 m/s, between 0.1 and 2 meters from the solid surface below them. Doing so requires a target. Nemain may move EITHER toward or away from the target based on which mode she is in. Nemain may move laterally, or in an orbit around the target in both modes. In Sealgair, Hover can go backwards. In Marbhadh Hover can go forward. When moving laterally, Nemain swivels to always be facing the Target
  • Sealgair In this mode, Nemain fires visible kinetic energy blasts. These blasts may travel along an arcing trajectory toward where the target was when the blast was fired. The blasts cause a shaped explosion on contact with a solid, force field, or fluid condensed enough to act as a force field. Blasts continue until they hit something. The blasts do not suffer from the effects of wind or gravity. Nemain's Blasts are between 25,000 joules and 10 megajoules, and may be expelled at a rate of 600 megawatts. Each blast charges Marbhadh with an equal amount of kinetic energy, if the blast hits the Target Marbhadh is charged double. Sealgair may store up to 175 megajoules. The blasts move at 450 m/s
  • Marbhadh In this mode, Nemain strikes for up to 22 megajoules. Each attempted strike at the target charges Sealgair for an equal amount, landing the strike doubles the charge. In this mode, Nemain also gains super-strength to the tune of 110 ton lifting. This mode also enhances her Combat Speed from 25 to 100 m/s. The pool for striking is 175 Megajoules
  • Targeting Nemain places a target on someone they can see directly. The target becomes aware they are in a fight, but not notified of who Nemain is. As long as the target is active, Hover is active. Nemain is aware of how far they are from the target. She is notified if she Staggers, KOs or Kills her target. If her target dies, Targeting fades in 0.1 seconds. Nemain may end this effect preemptively, this takes .25 seconds to fade. The target is aware the effect has ended.

  • Forced into melee after a ranged barrage.
Feats:

  • Did a Highland Games log throw with a small Redwood
  • Punched someone's jaw so hard their teeth became lethal shrapnel, killing two bystanders
  • Durability:
  • Got shot in the face by .577 Tyrannosaur, this didn't draw blood
  • Had an aluminum baseball bat break on a single one of her fingers
  • Speed:
  • Chased a target that tried to escape in a car, caught them
  • Reached her target at the same time as a high arcing projectile she shot
  • Reactions:
  • Evaded an RPG after it was fired
  • Energy Projection:
  • Fired her full capacity at once, obliterating the building her target was hiding in.
  • Fired two blasts at varying arcs, they both hit the target's old position at the same time
  • Fighting Skill:
  • Timed her mode switch so that she could retreat with Hover immediately after landing a lead leg side kick
  • Noticed her target had moved, so she wheelkicked them into position for two high arcing projectiles to blow their head off

SITUATION
Map of AO
Map of Rännänen
Map of Järvenkylä
Map of Aarre
Following a deadly pandemic, and a series of other unfortunate events, in the 2020s the Finnish goverment broke down when most of their members fell ill. By 203X, Sweden has stepped in to assist the Finnish government until new politicians can be elected to rule the country. Rules and regulations, limiting Finnish freedom, has been instated by the Swedish rule and a group of dissidents have started terror-like activities in the Finnish countryside.
Adopting the name "Murtuneen siipin tilaus" (MST), the Finnish dissidents have evolved into a rebel faction, terrorising the Finnish countryside.
Swedish Special Forces have been tasked with combating MST in the Virolathi region of Finland. Recently, MST seized "control" of 3 towns in the region: Rännänen (Codename Fjällräven), Järvenkylä (Codename Koenigsegg), and Aarre (Codename Pågen). Reports indicate one of the towns have been converted into an MST HQ.
MISSION
  • Seize back control of the 3 towns
  • Locate MST HQ

Future of the subreddit

  • As we slowly transition out of old.reddit and into the redesign, we of course have (slowly) been working on a new subreddit for /LoveLive that will support new.reddit. The goals for the new subreddit will to have a banner that will feature all 4 groups of the Love Live project as well as having flairs for the characters and seiyuu for each group.
  • We recently conducted and finished an infographic for the Love Live community (with responses taken from the /LoveLive community, @LL_wikia on twitter and the LoveLive Discord community). The full infographic can be seen here:
https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/192297453251330048/732391176220573767/f_00_full4.png
Big thanks to mod chaos_inferno for conducting the survey and making the infographic ~
  • Test your knowledge - A big LoveLive quiz is on the way! We'll soon be launching a pretty gruelling quiz with some rewards up for grabs. The quiz (much like the LL Wikia quiz a few years ago) will be pretty damn hard and will test your knowledge to the maximum. Be on the lookout for that!
Once again, thanks for being apart of the community

2020.07.02 21:54 extrasmallbillie Allie Beth Stuckey: She isn't actually that relatable.

So, who is Allie Beth Stuckey?
careepublic life
Allie Beth Stuckey is a 28-year-old woman from Dallas, Texas. Her current career started in 2014, where she worked as a publicist and a social media strategist. During this time she started speaking at colleges about the importance of voting. In 2016, she started a blog called The Conservative Millennial, because she felt like at the time there weren’t enough young conservative voices in mainstream media. She started uploading videos on Facebook and gave her own commentary on the daily news.
In 2017, She started appearing as a guest host on Trump’s favorite TV Channel, Fox News. She has been on Fox News and Fox Business News. She’s been on Fake News around 13ish times. Also in 2017, she started making videos for PragerU.
Things started moving fast for Stuckey in 2018. She started her podcast Relatable. With her podcast, she analyzes the news, politics, culture, and theology from a conservative Christian perspective. Also in 2018, she had a video of her doing a fake interview with AOC go viral. AOC even tweeted about it.
On November 14th, 2019, Allie gave a testimony in front of Congress about why she is force-birth, I mean pro-life. In June 2019 she has interviews with representative Dan Crenshaw. She has also done interviews with conservatives' favorite black person, Candace Owens. She has interviewed our favorite book lover, Jeremy Vuolo. In the past few weeks, she has done an interview with Lara Trump.
Personal life
Allie was born on February 18th, 1992. She grew up in Dallas, Texas with her two brothers. One of her brothers has autism. Her parents are Ron Simmons) and Lisa Simmons. Her parents were poor when they got married, and her dad wore the same suit to work every day. They lived in a trailer at first. Eventually, her dad co-founded Retirement Advisors of America and recently retired as its Chairman of the Board. Her parents also worked for an MLM business during Allie’s childhood, but it wasn’t their main source of income. In 2013, Ron Simmons became a member of the Texas House of Representatives, representing District 65 in Denton County. Simmons was a pro-life representative that co-sponsored a 2013 bill that bans abortion after twenty weeks of gestation. He also co-sponsored legislation that would close some abortion clinics in Texas. He left office in 2019.
Allie went to a private Christian school named Trinity Christian Academy. In high school, she and some of her friends started taking birth control, even though they were in the purity movement that encourages young people to save sex for marriage. She was on birth control for 7 years until she decided to get off of it. After high school, she went to Furman University, where she received a BA in Communication Studies. She was on the Dean’s list for 4 years and gave the 2014 commencement speech at her graduation.
Allie met her now-husband Timonthy at a CrossFit class when she was a fitness instructor. She was 23 and he was 24. They hit it off quickly. They dated for 6 months and then got engaged. They got married on September 6th, 2015. They now have one daughter who was born last year.
Personal beliefs
Allie Beth Stuckey is a conservative Christian. Her particular brand of Christianity is Reformed Christianity, or Calvinism, after John Calvin. Calvinism believes that God hands pick everyone’s fate. Meaning, God knows that you are going to either heaven or hell before you are even born. This is called predestination.
Allie is a known republican. In 2012, she voted for woke performative ally Mit Romney. In 2016, despite thinking Crooked Hillary was going to win, she voted for racist and rapist Donald Trump. Her favorite president is Ronald Regan and her favorite holiday is the 4th of July.

2020.06.30 05:48 TriGlob Red Herrings.

It's been a hell of a year, shit's getting weird. This sub has been dead it seems, no one posting in almost a week. Everyone is distracted, rightfully so... Who can keep up with all the Cr**n V***** noise going on?
Who was aware of the ban-wave that hit reddit today? I wonder when discussing the ME will be a thought crime punishable by detainment? Will this sub be banned too eventually? Can't talk about reality, it's too dangerous, better shut up criminal. Sometimes it feels even posting here is becoming anxiety inducing, for many reasons, but time is looking short so fuck it.
So... who was aware of the so-called ephemeral Mandela Particle?
The Mandela, a fundamental particle, was discovered in 1973 by Leeds University cosmic ray group. The particle was named Mandela Particle in honor of Nelson Mandela. The particle would be 40 to 70 times the mass of a proton and was proposed to explain by Leeds to explain an anomaly of their measurements of multi-TeV cosmic rays near sea-level.
https://www.alternatememories.com/historical-events/science/the-mysterious-mandela-particle
https://terrific-top10.com/2013/06/30/top-10-things-named-after-nelson-mandela/
So, it doesn't exist... Kinda like how I feel sometimes in a post Mandela Effect mental hellscape, trying to discern whether anything is real or a figment, and where I fit into the equation. I mean shit, isn't that why the ME intrigues so many of you? Cause it verily gets to the heart of what the hell we are in. Akin to some kind of final understanding. Or is it? Is this why John Ellis wore that sign with Mandela's name on it? To honor an imaginary particle that couldn't even be replicated in later experiments. Seems science has a big problem with that issue, and they don't want to talk about it. It seems unlikely to me he(Ellis) chose that word for that reason, but odd nonetheless. Right? Fishy, like this whole damn subject is. It stinks funny, and I don't like it. Never felt right about any of this. How could we? You can't trust your fuckin memories anymore, and that's enough to break lesser minds.
‘There is a Party slogan dealing with the control of the past,’ he said. ‘Repeat it, if you please.’ ‘’Who controls the past controls the future: who controls the present controls the past,‘‘ repeated Winston obediently. ‘’Who controls the present controls the past,‘‘ said O’Brien, nodding his head with slow approval. ‘Is it your opinion, Winston, that the past has real existence?’
Now, let us take a look at something here shall we?
https://puu.sh/qJWd1/74e941e31e.png
'Not everyone is accepting the updates. For some reason "the veil" isn't working some people. Currently it is is spiralling out of control, and we anticipate a larger populace that will experience memory anomalies within the next few years. By 2020 everything will settle'.
Oh really? 2020 huh? Why the fuck did he pick that year? Well, it is 2020 and has the ME settled?
Let's look at google trends(not that I trust google in the least, fuck them), and see what it has to say, ya know, for shitz n giggles.
https://trends.google.com/trends/explore?date=all&geo=US&q=mandela%20effect
Uh oh, the curve is going back up since May 10th. Wonder what is causing a reinvigorated public interest? People being cooped up causing them to look into the ME more, maybe their reality being shattered by the lockdown? Who knows?
Continue to look into what he says, and you will notice some anomalies.
https://puu.sh/qJWfb/edb02d89ce.png
'This is a proof of concept. If we can overwrite the population with false memories, unfortunately the future will mostly be manufactured.'
So, which is Mr. Cernwhistleblower? A simulation which needed resetting? An ELE was initiated to reset the Global economy? The base reality mainframe server becoming overloaded due to processing limitations? Or is it false memories inserted on the unwitting populace? I'm confused. I've seen these cognitive dissonant theories before numerous occasions, so strange. In the same theory it's multiworlds or timelines, and a simulation rolled up in one big fatty, and the inured people smoke it up happily. So, is it Cern? Is it Multiworld theory? A piss poor simulacra? Hell, why not throw in some quantum immortality while ya at it?
I saw everyone overlook how the supposed Cern whistleblower threw in our faces a plausible truth mixed in with deadend rabbitholes that leave you lost, probably should a taken a left turn back at Albuquerque you Looney Toon.
Think about that for a minute. Insert false memories on a mass scale. Say no mo
Here is some more pngs of the 4chan front lobe dissonance.
https://puu.sh/qJWgF/3d2527385d.png
https://puu.sh/qJWhG/3023c007a4.png
https://puu.sh/qJWjG/c0c52e3015.png
https://puu.sh/qJWlp/97c9e7e926.png
https://puu.sh/qJWs1/31316c358c.png
So, it is 2020, and it looks like ME is not subsiding, but it has definitely slowed down progressively since 2015, and he called it would settle by 2020, and here we are, well, now where do we stand? Has it stopped?
Or maybe... maybe I did this? I switched us to this Nightmare Dimension. ;) For fun. hehehehehe
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W98N16Dbj8A
How would you know either way? You can't trust your own memories anymore, can you? You have been corrupted in your mental mainframe. Your memories have been weaponized in a new era of non-linear warfare, NLP, and memetic magic through unnatural means, by wicked magicians.
'Again the feeling of helplessness descended upon Winston. His eyes flitted towards the dial. He not only did not know whether ‘yes’ or ‘no’ was the answer that would save him from pain; he did not even know which answer he believed to be the true one. O’Brien smiled faintly. ‘You are no metaphysician, Winston,’ he said. ‘Until this moment you had never considered what is meant by existence.
I will put it more precisely. Does the past exist concretely, in space? Is there somewhere or other a place, a world of solid objects, where the past is still happening?’ ‘No.’ ‘Then where does the past exist, if at all?’ ‘In records. It is written down.’ ‘In records. And——?’ ‘In the mind. In human memories.’ ‘In memory. Very well, then. We, the Party, control all records, and we control all memories. Then we control the past, do we not?’
‘But how can you stop people remembering things?’ cried Winston again momentarily forgetting the dial. ‘It is involuntary. It is outside oneself. How can you control memory? You have not controlled mine!’ O’Brien’s manner grew stern again. He laid his hand on the dial. ‘On the contrary,’ he said, ‘YOU have not controlled it. That is what has brought you here. You are here because you have failed in humility, in self-discipline.
You would not make the act of submission which is the price of sanity. You preferred to be a lunatic, a minority of one. Only the disciplined mind can see reality, Winston. You believe that reality is something objective, external, existing in its own right. You also believe that the nature of reality is self evident. When you delude yourself into thinking that you see something, you assume that everyone else sees the same thing as you.
But I tell you, Winston, that reality is not external. Reality exists in the human mind, and nowhere else. Not in the individual mind, which can make mistakes, and in any case soon perishes: only in the mind of the Party, which is collective and immortal. Whatever the Party holds to be the truth, is truth. It is impossible to see reality except by looking through the eyes of the Party. That is the fact that you have got to relearn, Winston. It needs an act of self destruction, an effort of the will. You must humble yourself before you can become sane.’

*'We need a program of psychosurgery for political control of our society. The purpose is physical control of the mind. Everyone who deviates from the given norm can be surgically mutilated. ... The individual may think that the most important reality is his own existence, but this is only his personal point of view. This lacks historical perspective. Man does not have the right to develop his own mind. This kind of liberal orientation has great appeal. We must electronically control the brain. Someday armies and generals will be controlled by electric stimulation of the brain.' Dr. Joseph Delgato *
Remember the brain has no firewall fellow thought criminals! Now, lest us not forget this whole thing arose because the fucking dead were rising up from well the dead like we live in fucking Zombieland.. Double tap anyone? I know for an absolute fucking fact I saw on the telly Louie fucking Anderson died of a fucking heart attack, and others on reddit have confirmed with me discussing it, the exact same memory of him dying of a heart related issue sometime around the late 90's. Then he is simply back alive, and hosting fucking game shows, get da fuck outta here with that bullshit. Mandela too. Get outta here. Really? Arose from the fucking dead like Jesus of Nazareth. That is not supposed to happen. Reality was always assumed to be solid, and object permanence is a child level learning skill according to modern science, like 3 years old get reality doesn't just fucking change like that.

2020.06.23 22:16 Sebaren Are my fingers clubbing? If they are, do any of my conditions explain it?

Age and sex: 24F.
Height: 5'7"
Weight: 134 pounds
Race: White British/Irish
Primary complaint: I have noticed some issues with my fingers, namely that I have very, very small Schamroth's windows, barely noticeable at all (bar my thumbs). I have looked at images, and I'm not sure if my fingers/nails are normal because they bend outwards. I have included images of the potential issue, including my fingers pressed together and just the nails on one hand. If you need any other images, let me know. I am experiencing no other concerning symptoms regarding this aside from what is listed below regarding other conditions, though I am not sure if they are relevant.
Duration: Noticed during my late teenage years, but I don't have a definitive starting date.
Existing medical issues: I have a mild arrhythmia and low blood pressure issues (similar to POTS, but I was never officially diagnosed with anything and doctors seem reluctant to give me a definitive answer). I also have menorrhagia and idiosyncratic epilepsy of the right frontal lobe. As a side note, my father's side of the family has a history of quite aggressive cardiomyopathy, but an ultrasound conducted four years ago when my arrhythmia was found showed no enlargement. My elderly father has showed no signs of it (confirmed by ultrasound), and thus far, everyone has either been diagnosed young, or was diagnosed later in life, but had evidently had the condition for decades. I find it unlikely that this would be the cause considering the fact that my fingers have been like this since before I had my own scan.
Current medications and doses: Desogestrel (75 micrograms), Keppra (500mg x 2 per day), and bisoprolol (2.5mg).
I do not drink, smoke, or use recreational drugs.

2020.06.21 19:49 DrDeaf Legacy to end the NIP with Goons.

Good Afternoon,
‘The Die is cast’
As of a short time ago, the following message was passed to the Imperium diplomat.
“At this time, we feel that it is in the best interest of both parties that our mutual NIP come to an END. Due to the conflict you are currently involved in and because of our history of cooperation and friendship I am proposing the NIP to end on the date of July the fifth to allow you two weeks to fortify your borders or any areas you feel would require it. If you intend to end the NIP before that time we will understand. “
This will represent an end to our historic relationship and a massive change in the dynamics of the global politics of EVE-Online. This might not be in our best interest on paper, but regardless of the desire for safety, security and peace many have, there must also be conflict. We may all die in a ball of fire or we may engage in the greatest of victories imaginable. Whatever happens it will be interesting, dynamic, vibrant and exciting.
Provided they choose to continue the NIP for the remaining two weeks, you will have time to make arrangements and krab in preparation for the events this will likely lead into. When the NIP ends we will likely being retaking areas that have been denied us for the last few years and there will certainly be conflict and blood over it. You WILL respect the NIP until such time as it ends or is ended for us. While there will be no shortage of animosity towards us today we will carry ourselves with class and professionalism.
Be on the lookout for pings about move ops, we will have a lot of moving to do both of your own ships and alliance cache ships. Other than that, just continue to crab and get ready for July 5th.
You are the new TEST, welcome to the new age.

2020.06.15 22:42 JakeUbowski More Datamining - Old 2nd Set, Voice Lines, and more

!DISCLAIMER!

While the following files have been taken from the beta files, they are not guaranteed to be upcoming content. There is a lot of old 1.0 files still left in the beta files. I checked with the devs and Eric Tams even said that this is stuff he's never even seen(1, 2). I will keep my speculations in quote boxes.
Edit: It seems that my puush isn't wanting to upload images too reliably. Ill replace the links with imgur ones where I can. Let me know if you find broken links.

POTENTIAL SPOILERS!

OLD EXPANSION CARD LIST

!DISCLAIMER! This is a very old text file. Eric Tams said its probably from 2018 and that he hadn't even seen it before. It includes 1.0 cards and heroes that are in the 2.0 beta currently, so consider it very out of date at the least.
Heroes: Belasanno, Emperor Galanius, Mazzie, Spirit Breaker, Abaddon, Dark Willow, Juggernaut, Magnus, Vengeful Spirit, Lina, Oracle, Alchemist, Knogh, Lion.
Full list with cards and rarities

DEVELOPER CARDS

!DISCLAIMER! If the set02 cardlist file was old this ones even older. It contains cards used in testing and for dev uses.
Also contains stuff that look like explorations of what a hero would be.
developer_cards

BETA CARD ART

I noticed that some of the card designs in the developer_cards file seemed to match up with card art I found previously. I've matched them up here.
This means that a lot of the card art I found earlier probably isn't for the 2.0 beta!
Cards and their art all have IDs. 4 Digit IDs seem to be the base cards of 1.0, 10000 thru 10599 seem to be Call To Arms cards. 10600 thru 14157 seem to be various unused card art and 2.0 beta MSpaint art. Note that there is not a file for every single ID; there is 567 card art files in the set01 Full_art folder.

After the combat phase, transform allied s into s.

BLOOD GOLEM VOICE LINES

Found in the file directory for 1.0 card and lore voice lines. Has conditional voice lines if it is played when your Ancient is exposed, or your opponents ancient is exposed.

JOLIXIA VOICE LINES

BOARD AND CARD PROP MODELS

These files can be used in various things such as Imp props or card effects such as Emissary of the Quorum's cube.

CHAOS GAUNTLET EVENT

Files for what looks to be an event with game modes in 1.0
  • Check out this post by u/isceruth for the most interesting stuff. The following is just smaller, less interesting files.
  • Astrolabe renders(1, 2)
  • Chaos Alter textures(1, 2)
    They both have the same UV layout so it would make sense that they use the same model. Could mean this is something that you can upgrade, or that it changes as you unlock things.
  • A lot of Gem stone textures(1, 2, 3, 4, 5) There are lots of these in various geometric shapes and colors.
  • Astrolabe planet UI sound effects.
    If the planets are buttons you click on I would guess this event has different "areas" of stuff happening on each planet. Could be different puzzles, different card unlocks, who knows.

MISC FILES

  • Hacking Mechanic - Found in a text file for status effects such as Stunned, Silenced, Locked, etc.
    Could possibly be the mechanic behind changing a card's color.
  • Card backs and card back icons(1, 2, 3, 4)
  • Kamikazee card sound effect found in 1.0 folder
  • Slip Into Shadow card sound effect from the set02 expansion(1, 2)
  • Ability Draft, found in UI folder(1, 2)
    This doesn't look like anything to do with Artifact but it's there for some reason
  • Various Radiant flags(autumn, blue, coloseum, desert, newyear, spring, winter)
  • world map
    Campaign temp art perhaps
  • 3D map that Ive imported to blender. Source file here
    Looks like its intended to be a board or a tactical map type thing rather than a world sized map.
  • New Mutation card particles
  • Misc sfx(1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6)
    Sound like they're from an RPG. Drew Wolf's website where there is some concept art for Artifact says that the art was made for an untitled co-op RPG. Perhaps Artifact started out as an RPG rather than a card game)
  • Old dev art(1, 2)

Previous Parts
TL#1
Edith Blackwater (continued)
Rather than changing from a recruit suit to a nun outfit, the “full switch” happens when I replace my rimless glasses with the fox-style glasess. Thus, I go from “watakushi” to “atashi”.
(T/L: The most common way for people in Japan to say I is watashi. Watashi is the standard form of I and is used by both men and women of all ages. It is considered perfectly okay to use in formal situations, but if you need to be especially formal, you can choose to use a variation of watashi instead. By adding the syllable 'ku', you can create the word watakushi. Watakushi is considered very formal and as such, isn't used nearly as often as the standard watashi. Both watashi and watakushi share the same kanji. Similar to watashi is the word atashi (all that is missing is the leading 'w'). Atashi is generally used by younger girls or women trying to sound more feminine or cute. Though atashi is an informal way for females to refer to themselves, it, like watashi, also has a more formal variation. By adding 'ku', atashi becomes the more formal equivalent - atakushi.)
Sister Eda is a well-known name in the town of Roanapur. A bouncer for the Rip-off Church, which manages the distribution of weapons in the city. It is be a reasonable price to take on all sorts of dirty jobs in exchange for iron-clad fake identity.
The codependency with the Church’s one-eyed nun, Yolanda, is very delicate. The old Yolanda has an accurate grasp of the menace and the value of my alliance, and I have no confidence to get past that yokai-like old woman. She was a swastika-carrying poisonous woman who waged intelligence warfare in World War II, before my mother’s first menstruation came. She is a well-repected figure in the intelligence circles. Even my Boss Revencroft looks like a child in front of her.
The Chapel, with a cross on a small hill, is a legitimate house of God, registered by the Vatican. Sister Yolanda, who is in charge, has been buying the baptismal certificate by whatever means ... There must surely be a secret hidden in the history of the Dead Sea Scrolls.
(T/L: This is a good example of the limitations of my Japanese. I have no idea what that last sentence means although I can decipher all the words. The best I can do is give you a literal translation. I hope you can bear with such imperfections.)
Despite this trust, I usually keep some cards hidden. However, I was at a loss on what to do this time. Without Yolanda, nothing can start. In the end, I told her about my next mission without any cover-up.
“What a troublesome tale, “she said.
The meek sigh of Sister Yolanda is one of a gentle grandmother soothing the tantrum of her grandchild. Well, such an impression is also ruined by the pirate-like eye-patch.
“Absolutely. I doubt the sanity of the Operations Headquarters this time."
Sister Yolanda is the only one with whom both "watakushi" and "atashi" can talk. It is usually leave the matter of my background to 'watakushi' but when I feel like I need to exhale poison about my problems I let “atashi” take the reign.
“In short, the idea is to make this town a toilet for Langley. When a project becomes conspicuous, you conveniently dispose of it by guiding it to Roanapur. What happens here doesn’t leak. Everyone can sleep with their pillow without being bothered by the smell of feces.”
“So, the great country wants to dispose of its stinky business so much, but dragging it all the way to Thailand?”
“That same country is responsible for the kidnapping and exhortation of native Americans. It's nothing unheard of.”
“Oh my…”
Yolanda cut the cross so horribly. It's an overtly playful joke, but it's not a laughing matter.
In principle, for the CIA, which mainly deals with foreign intelligence, carrying out operations in the country is its biggest taboo. He who tries to imitate Nixon's game of fire at a Watergate is a fool.
However, it is somewhat difficult to draw a line if the same Americans were the ones arbitrarily calling out the exogenous threat. For example, if a business tycoon who has a strong influence even in Congress trying to establish relationships with China, isn’t the responsibility of "counterintelligence" to prevent this?
“Have you heard of Philip O’Sullivan, Sister?”
“Yes, he is the President of O’Sullivan Corporation, a shipping company with a turnover of 3 billion dollars a year. An embodiment of the American Dream. He rose up from a stoker in the San Francisco Wharf and made a fortune in one generation. He is a gentleman of no-nonsense.”
She’s dribbling. When it comes to people of influence un the economic and political worlds, the old woman’s knowledge knows no bounds. “How about his President Philp’s relationship with the Chinese Communist Party veterans” “I’ve heard of it. The other side of the relationship: Tsuen Shunten, the Director of the Central External Liaison Department, , is rumored to have a connection the local Fujin Mafia, “Puu Tai Ban””
The relationship between Philipp and Tsuen dates back the working days the two young men. For about half a century, the difference between countries and ideologies did not crack their friendship. It is a relationship that is about to bear an ungodly fruit before the 21st century.
“It has not been revealed yet, but Philip is trying get his daughter Tricia to marry his grandson.”
“I see, I see… It’s a tough one for Uncle Sam.”
Considering the future U.S. policy toward China, this is not an overstatement. It is rumored that Tsuen's son is the vice Secretary of the Communist Party of China, and would eventually become the Permanent Secretary of the Central Political Bureau of the Chinese Communist Party. And that his grandson's assumption of an important post is certain. They would have a very thick pipe into the American business world with a blood relationship. From a defense standpoint, this marriage proposal has "Crisis" written all over it, which must be avoided by all means.
"The aim is to connect Tsuen with the Fujian Mafia. If we can convince Mr. Philip that it is dangerous to be related to a family that has such connections, we can drive a wedge into their friendship."
"...And the thought of the Operation Headquarters is this "Operation Persephone"?"
She looked down at the hardcopy of the strategy she had at hand and sighed deeply.
"Eda, what do you think of the success of this operation?"
"Even though it's not possible to get the best results, it is an easier story if we were to go after the second-best results."
After all, the plan is to stage a kidnapping.
Tricia O'Sullivan is invited to Thailand, where she would be held hostage in Roanapur. While the CIA, pretending they are desperate to resolve the kidnapping case, they approach President Philip and persuades him of the danger of continuing his friendship with the family. If Philip is convinced that the only way to ensure his daughter's safety is to throw away his friendship with Tsuen, they release Tricia and convince him only his American compatriots can be relied on. ─ This is the best-case scenario.
"Of course, Tsuen won’t stay silent. It's a predicament for his grandson future wife. Since the girl's disappearance is in Asia, then that's the reason why he’d try to solve the situation with the connections with Puu Tai Ban."
"And what if Mr. Philipp relied upon a greater network of contacts than the CIA?"
"Then—the poor Miss Tricia will return home in her coffin."
Even so, the marriage between the O'Sullivan family and the Tsuen family could be broken off, so the original purpose was accomplished. This is the next best scenario.
Of course, this is not only when Philip’s persuasion fails, but also when it becomes difficult to continue secure Tricia, for example, when a Fujian connection finds out where Tricia is and is likely to recapture her.
"There are many other smart ways. The quality of American spies has fallen."
"It's a painful story. I agree. can't help being licked by the NSA with this type of work. Well, I can't make my job easier when I complain."
No matter how foolish a plan may be, it is the man on the scene who is to be blamed for failure. This is an everlasting injustice.
"If there is a possibility that I will be successful... I can only count on the skill of the operative who is in charge of kidnapping."
"Is it smart?"
"Well, it's outsourcing. It depends on how much you really want to receive the evaluation report."
As long as the strategy is based on the return of Tricia alive, the kidnappers who come into contact with her cannot use the staff directly. I will not be directly involved in the abduction and confinement of Tricia, but will be used for indirect support and liaison.
This time, the agent prepared by the operations headquarters is a man named Cardinas Sheringham. In seems the kidnapping business, which has been popular in South America recently, have made a lot of money. His nationality was Holland, but his place of origin is unknown. He was 28 years old in the record.
"Originally he was a small-time crook in Amsterdam, but he has a remarkable skill. It seems that he can mentally control kidnapping targets."
"Mental control? You mean he uses hypnosis, right?"
"Now, all the victims would favor the kidnappers so much that they would resist the police who came to liberate them, or interfere with the investigations afterwards."
There is a phenomenon called Stockholm syndrome. It is said that victims who have been abducted and confined for a long time will begin to feel excessive sympathy, trust, and addictive feelings toward the criminal. It seems that a man named Sheringham can acquire empathy from such a target more intensely and in a short period of time by his trick.
"if the kidnapped person could act like areal accomplice, it would make my job easier. He is nicknamed "Wizard"—Maybe he's really using hypnosis."
Sheringham seems to have been commissioned by the CIA several times in the past. The code name is also magician. Apparently, the person likes this name too much. It seems that he has been lost for the past year or so, but the Operations Headquarters seems to have still secured channels of contact. A photograph of the face is also attached to the report, but it is not reliable because it is possible that the face was changed by plastic surgery.
"A wizard, eh..."
Muttering the little code name, Yolanda tilted her head as if she had caught something.
"There's a man with the same nickname in this town…"
"Eh? Come now..."
Oh, him.
He's more of a clown than a wizard. Well, surely the reason why he is still alive by doing such drunken imitations each time, is that he must be carrying something magical.
"Isn’t he a newcomer to Roanapur? Sheringham’s absence overlaps with the time we first saw him here."
"That man? Ha, ha, no, I don’t think so."
A CIA's illegal agent, a middle-man wizard, can only be described as a person as far from that person’s profile as the moon and a turtle.
"Ha ha ha no! No way!"

2020.06.08 00:50 takoz53 [osu!std] VQBoi Suspicious Timeline activity (Could be cheats or multiacc..)

User: https://osu.ppy.sh/users/15721676
I found this dude in multiplayer, getting randomly >1000 on Hachigatsu, Bou... with HD and dying on the slow part (which is kind of smelly!), so I checked into his profile and saw his weird timeline activity.

He said he's a "Ripple player" as his friend introduced him into Ripple first, but looking at his account creation date, it's December 2019, which is pretty fishy as well.
Looking at this graph makes things even more fishy, so I thought I should post this here.
According to a friend who also looked into it, he stated:
here is the American Ripple leaderboard along with the account creation dates next to any player remotely capable of a 500pp score, clearly multi-account or liar or cheater or etc. the graph doesn't really prove anything as you stated but really. The creation date, the amount played, the "Ripple player" story, the whole 600pp thingy...I'm sure they can figure this out.
Also stating Information regarding Unique Scores.

2020.05.26 17:39 excxpt An Unofficial FAQ for Launch Day

Hello, dungeoneers!
I wanted to put together an updated FAQ as the one stickied on the subreddit doesn’t answer many of the questions spamming the subreddit with today’s launch. I’ll try to be as accurate as possible with my answers, but if you’ve got any suggestions/issues, please let me know!

Purchases/Hero Edition Bonus

Where is the Hero Edition on the Playstation Store?
The Hero Edition is not yet available on the Playstation Store. Mojang is aware and they are providing updates via Twitter.
I bought the Standard Edition. Can I upgrade to the Hero Edition?
Yes! You can purchase the Hero Pass separately. It's currently £9.49 on the UK PlayStation Store.
I bought the Hero Edition, but some skins are still locked. Why?
These skins will be available as part of the additional DLC packs launching at a later date.
Where can I find my Hero Edition Cape and Pet?
Your bonus items can be found under the 'Cosmetics' tab in your inventory.
What's the difference between the 'Windows 7 and Above' and 'Windows 10' version?
The 'Windows 7 and Above' is playable via the 'Minecraft Dungeons Launcher' which can be installed on Windows 7 and above. The Windows 10 version is purchased and launched through the Microsoft Store (without the launcher) which is only available on Windows 10.
In regards to gameplay, there's no difference between each version. You will be able to play multiplayer with friends using both versions.

Gameplay

Can I matchmake with random players?
No, unfortunately not. You will have to add another player as a friend and invite them. I suggest looking through the subreddit for other players looking for friends but try not to spam the subreddit with more friend posts. Hopefully the moderators can make a Looking For Group sticky.
How do I crossplay?
Cross-play is not yet available but will be coming in a future patch. There is a glitch to enable Xbox to PC crossplay, but it’s not clear how stable this is or if it will be patched.
How do I trade/drop items for others?
There is currently no way of trading/giving items to other players. Loot is locked to your character only.
Is Beta progress carried across to launch?
Maybe. Some players are reporting that their beta characters have carried across to launch. As save files are stored locally and not in the cloud, there's a chance these have remained on your system.
Can I build?
No, currently there is no building mechanic.
Is there any PvP?
No, currently this is no PvP implemented. This may be coming at a later date if the game is successful enough.

Errors/Bugs

Why does 'Cannot play due to Online Play being restricted' keep appearing when trying to play online?
Make sure you aren't banned from Xbox services and that your account isn't restricted by any privacy/parental controls and then try again. Alternatively, you can play in offline mode.
I can't stop rolling! What do I do?
If you're playing with a controller, you may be suffering from joystick drift. Adjust the dead zone of your right-stick and try again.
---
I scrolled through 'New' to find the most re-posted questions and put this together. If there's any other questions you think need answering, please let me know. Also, I'm not trying to tread on any toes by doing this, I'm just trying to help!
Have fun!
