Hotel Refund End-Date Approaching - But Still No Refund

2020.08.04 15:49 elearor Hotel Refund End-Date Approaching - But Still No Refund

i had a hotel stay in london booked in may. obviously, the hotel was shut - the gig i was going for cancelled - and since i'm at the other end of the country, i couldn't have travelled down even if i wanted to. the hotel chain aren't *massive*, but still big enough to have branches in places like glasgow and liverpool, as well as london.
anyway, i messaged them about a refund and they were super difficult, stating that when i booked, it said in their terms and conditions that no matter what, bookings were non-refundable. even though they were closed and unable to fulfil my booking regardless. i checked their site and they'd changed their t&cs when lockdown started, so towards the end of march. after some scouring on the internet, i found another customer who'd screenshot the hotel's t&cs in january (when i actually booked) and it states that we have the right to cancel our reservations free of charge.
this proved to be a lifesaver, as once i forwarded them the screenshot, their attitude changed. my hotel stay passed with the country still in lockdown, and they agreed to refund me (and it's a substantial amount) within 90 days from that day. i have it in writing.
i've been in touch a few times since to remind them that the 90 days are nearly up, and they insist they're just busy and "can't provide an estimated refund date". the 90 days is up as of sunday and i've heard nothing.
worst case scenario, they disappeadon't refund me within the 90 days. if that's the case, how do i proceed? i actually started a charge-back with my debit card before they agreed to refund me, with the condition that i cancelled the charge-back. but if there's anything i can do legally (small claims?) or otherwise, advice would be appreciated. i'm obviously losing my patience with them, and a little sick of being treated like crap.

2020.06.26 03:58 rustlingstillness DistroKid vs. CD Baby vs. EmuBands and more - My Experience with Music Distributors

In this post, I will share my hands-on experience with three digital distributors, CD Baby, EmuBands and DistroKid, so anyone interested can know more about the experiences that are not possible to know solely from browsing their websites.
In the second half of this article, I will also list a few other distributors that I don't have experience with but hopefully some others may find useful. Among the distributors listed on this post, Landr and Soundrop offer cover song licensing for a one-off fee. If you do cover songs, please refer to the section for details.
I will go straight into these distributors. For more background about digital distribution, please read my another post: How to Release Your Music on Spotify and Apple Music?

CD Baby

The largest and oldest distributor on the market. They charge one-off fees for each release. No more fees after that, except they take 9% of the royalties, artists take 91%.
Releasing a single costs $9.95 and an album costs $29.95. Every release requires a unique UPC. The UPC costs $5 from them for a single and $20 for an album. So altogether the cost for each release is $14.95 for a single and $49.95 for an album. [What is UPC/ISRC?]
However, the cost of the UPC can be reduced by buying off one's own UPC online then use these UPC for releases. That will make the cost of a UPC as cheap as less than $1.
For example, buying off 5 UPC from BarCodesTalk costs only $10 and 25 UPC for only $25.
In this way, each release may cost just $11 for a single or $31 for an album.
Just need to keep in mind that there are a lot of UPC sellers on the internet, some of them may not work as others so do your research before buying them. BarCodesTalk seems to be legit among the rest and I haven't encountered any issue with them.
The "Pro" releases offered by CD Baby cover everything in Standard (mentioned above) plus publishing, cost $29.95 for a single and $69 for an album.
For streaming, going with Standard would be just fine. Also it may be more flexible to register with PRO (Performance Right Organisation) yourself instead of leaving that with CD Baby. These include BMI, SOUNDEXCHANGE, SongTrust and ASCAP.
During the pandemic, almost all distributors were complained by their users about processing time is taking too long, including CD Baby, but it seemed to be better now. My releases with them took 13 days in May and around 8 days in mid-June. [2 July update: took 6 days in early July]
My only complaint about CD Baby is the processing speed has room to improve and they take 9% of the royalties. Other than that, all good!

Pros

Cons

Verdict

An all-rounder for digital distribution, transparent and clear billing model, no need to worry about the songs may be taken down one day. The only drawback is the processing time has room to improve.

EmuBands

EmuBands is based in Glasgow, Scotland, UK and was founded in 2005. There doesn't seem much to be found on the internet but they are on Spotify Preferred Distributor List.
They charge releases similar to CD Baby's model: one-off and that's it!
Artists keep 100% of the royalties.
It's obvious that the charge is far higher than other distributors, in exchange for fast-responding customer services and excellent processing time. They processed my releases mostly within one working day, even during the pandemic. This is incredible!

Pros

Cons

Verdict

If you have the budget, EmuBands is very good in terms of service and processing speed. YouTube Content ID is the only lack of features comparing to other distributors. Use AdRev to cover YouTube Content ID if you decide to go with EmuBands.

DistroKid

In recent years DistroKid has been somehow popular in the independent musician community. They charge annual fees for unlimited uploads and releases.
The cheapest annual plan, Musician $19.99 per year, doesn't offer custom release dates. This limitation often causes problems with pitching playlist considerations. The feature, which is often available for free with other distributors, is offered by DistroKid's annual plan one level up, Musician Plus $35.99 per year.
Annual payments are necessary to keep the songs online. Otherwise, the songs will be deleted no matter what.
DistroKid advertises "Leave a Legacy" as their one-off option for the songs to stay online forever.
However, Leave a Legacy only protects songs from payment failures. Freely stop paying annual fees or cancelling membership will result in all songs getting deleted, no matter whether "Leave a Legacy" has been paid! For elaboration, see my post or DistroKid's official page (6 July 2020 Update: DistroKid seemed changed the page and no longer saying cancelling membership will delete the songs).
DistroKid was my first distributor. After a few months on digital distribution, I started getting know more about the market then I decided to switch out of them. The main reasons are a lot of features require add-ons to be paid and Leave a Legacy doesn't really keep my music online forever as I wish.
It's absolutely cost-effective to release songs using DistroKid. But if in any case you wish to discontinue the annual payments, it's better off re-uploading the songs through other one-time fee distributors, for example, CD Baby, EmuBands, Landr, or free alternatives such as Amuse or RouteNote. That way may end up cheaper and occur less hassle than going through the route of Leave a Legacy. [Know more about how to switch distributors]

Pros

Cons

Verdict

The annual subscription is cost-effective in some cases, with some other features require add-on payments. It may not be as cheap as it appears to be with all the add-ons paid. Go with other one-off payment distributors if one day you decide not to keep up the annual payments.

Below I list a few more distributors that I haven't interact with but may suit someone's need. One thing to keep in mind is that during the pandemic almost all the distributor suffer from extended processing time, including everyone below. Check their twitter for the timeline.

Landr

Landr operates on a hybrid billing model.
For $0 annual payments, Landr takes 15% of the royalties and charges $9 for a single and $29 for an EP/album.
For $20 annual payments, Landr takes 9% of the royalties and charges $5 for a single and $19 for an EP/album.
For $89 annual payments, Landr takes 0% of the royalties and offers unlimited releases.
The $89 plan works the same way as DistroKid and further offers the possibility to keep songs online without paying annual fees in the future.
Users are allowed to switch between different annual plans. Stop paying annual fees will automatically switch the songs to the free plan which Landr takes 15% of the royalties. Songs will never be deleted. (However, check this comment while things getting settled)
Landr offers cover song licensing, with a one-off fee of $15.
7 July 2020 Update: landr_audio commented that the current processing time is 6-8 business days.

Soundrop

Free! Takes 15% of the royalties. They offer a competitive cover song licensing service for a one-off fee of $9.99.

Ditto

Ditto charges $19 annual payments for unlimited releases and takes 0% of the royalties. Stopping annual payments will delete the songs.

Amuse

Amuse offers free and paid plans, both offer unlimited releases and pay 100% of the royalties.
The free plan doesn't allow custom release dates and labels. The default release date is set to 28 days ahead of the submission and will be settled at some point upon how busy they are.
Some of the platforms are available only to paid plans, but the major ones, including Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music and Shazam are included in both free and paid plans.
The paid plan charges $60 per year (or $8 per month) and offers custom release dates and labels plus delivering to Instagram, TikTok and YouTube Content ID. These features are not provided by the free plan.
Stopping paying annual fees will switch the account to the free plan, users still get 100% of the royalties and the songs stay online.

RouteNote

RouteNote offers free and paid plans, both offer the same features. The difference is that the free plan takes 15% of the royalties where the paid plan takes 0%.
The paid plan comes in two stages, for each release, they charge a one-time release fee, $10 for a single, $20 for an EP and $30 for an album.
Starting from the second year of each release, a renewal fee of $9.99 per year is required to keep 100% of the royalties. Stop paying the renewal fee will switch the releases to the free plan, which RouteNote takes 15% of the royalties and the songs stay online.

So that's all for now. What's your experience with your distributors? Is there any distributor that you think worth mentioning? How is the processing time in your experience?

2020.04.30 07:22 Justifiable_Lunacy This Day in Crime History: April 29

Hello everyone! First and foremost, I'd like to give a big thank you to the guys in the tech department of Town Hall for giving the Police Department this pretty neat flair! Now if anyone wants to see any of the old This Day in Crime History posts, all they have to do is search for it!
Now, today I would like to talk about internet safety . Let's go over some basic internet safety rules that everyone needs to follow.
  1. Don't click on strange links. If you're not certain where the link will take you, a general rule of thumb is not to click on it. Google and other search engines are okay, because every link they provide is accompanied by a description of the page the links direct you to.
  2. Don't click the advertisements. No, you did not just win a new pre-paid credit card. You probably aren't the millionth visitor on the website today. And I doubt that your hair loss will actually be cured or you'll lose weight or whatever "if you follow this one weird trick." Ads are trying to sell you something or direct you to unsafe areas of the internet.
  3. Don't provide any personal information to strangers or sites that seem untrustworthy. NEVER EVER EVER EVER EVER give out any passwords to people on the internet, don't tell them your phone number, don't tell them your name, don't tell them anything.
  4. RANDOM EMAILS ARE DANGEROUS. Do not open an email from someone who you don't know who they are. They could contain viruses.
Follow these guidelines, and just generally don't do anything that could be deemed unwise, and you'll have an enjoyable, safe session on the internet!
Stay safe everyone!
This Day in Crime History:
Global:
1997 - Serial killer Andrew Cunanon murders his accomplice David Madson on this date. The interesting thing about Cunanon was that it was a case of completely lost hope. Cunanon, basically a male prostitute for the gay elite of San Fransisco, believed himself to be HIV positive in a time period where the punishment for that was death. As such, he went on a killing spree, murdering an ex-boyfriend in front of Madson, who for an unknown reason, decided to help Cunanon.
Local:
2015 - Hubert Adolfson is arrested for assault with intent to rob. His weapon of choice? An eggplant. Having read an article concerning a robber from Glasgow who attempted to rob a store while wielding a cucumber in a black sock, he decided to attempt it himself with a "bigger vegetable" so it would be "more threatening." Needless to say, he was not successful.

2020.02.24 01:32 cluelessphp So I don't know

Last year at time time at this time I was fairly happy, I had a job that was ok and everything was going well. It was a live in position but I liked it, one weekend I went back home and bumped into an EX, we had grown apart after uni finished but we started talking again and I started coming down to were the house was I had, at the time she told me she had an implant in to prevent her getting pregnant...that turned out to be a lie and she became pregnant. Shortly after that she broke contact with me, I did try to get back in touch with her eventually her other messaged me ad said it was best not to message her on Facebook because she was fragile and the stress might cause harm to the baby and she would be in touch with any news, which she did I saw scans and was kept up to date with everything via her mother.
Nine months go by and social work get in touch with me saying that my daughter had been born and she had been taken at birth from the mother who had mental health issues, so I left the job I had up north and moved back into my house, I quickly got a job in Amazon and started to see my daughter once a week I wanted more but they said the mother needed time to bond with my daughter and she would get to see her three times a week, at this point she was in foster care because I was classed as an unknown person so I couldn't take her home, my contact is currently supervised as is the others although she hasn't went to see her since January. Social work then told me my daughter my be put up for adoption if they couldn't find someone to care for her, at this point my older sister had applied for kinship test and so had my daughters grandmother, I was told I wasn't eligible for a parental assessment at first for whatever reason. I had asked if my sister could come see my daughter during one of my contacts but I was told no because the mother needed time to adjust to my daughter, any request I made was always the same answer.
Eventually I was told I would be able to do a parental assessment, but I would have to show commitment to my daughter. I pointed out I had moved back from up north to be near my daughter but I was told that wasn't good enough if I really wanted the assessment I'd have to stop working...makes perfect fucking sense but I did. I had a plan, a friend I knew from back home and I had been working on a website, he was going to do the front end and I the back end, we had gotten the basics working when he told me his girlfriend was pregnant and he'd got a job as a web developer and was moving back home so he could work in Glasgow as he put it "to be more productive again", we spoke for awhile and I asked him if he still wanted to go ahead with the website we had been working on, he said he didn't have time but wished me luck. I accepted that he had a new family and a new job, one day he disappeared off Facebook, that wasn't unusual for him so I sent him a quick message on here and his profile on here disappeared too. He was pretty much the only person I could talk to but he seems to have just vanished from the online world.

A few days ago the mother turns up to my house after having cutting contact for the 3rd time, she was stinking and her hair was an absolute mess to the point it had fuck knows what in it, she asked if she could stay at mine the night, I agreed on the condition that she went for a shower. There had been a progress review not long ago and the reports said she was suicidal so I didn't want to say no just in case she done something to herself. I had to sit for a few hours washing her hair and taking knots and food and everything out of it including food, it clearly hadn't been washed in weeks. Everyone keeps telling me how hard it is for her just now, over the last few months everyone has bent over backwards to try and help her whilst constantly pushing me to the side as being irrelevant.

I applied for something in my country called universal credit, they awarded me £73 for a month, I spent most of that on buy electricity and food but needless to say it didn't go far, my bank account is now well and truly over drawn and way over it's credit limit I can't prevent additional charges to it. I spoke to my sister about it and pretty much just said oh well and didn't answer me for a few days. I'm still not sure what to do about that, I'm not really sure why I still have internet access I thought it would have been cut off by now.

I'm at the point now were I have to come to terms with the fact without a job I can't make enough money to look after my daughter and if I get a job I won't get my daughter, I had hoped more people would take an interest in the website I had been building and the ads would give me a little money to live on but I can't see it working that way now, but it gives me false hope I guess and that's better than nothing.

Currently my daughter is living with my EX's mother, I'm at least grateful one of my daughters grandmothers is taking an interest in my daughter, the woman who gave birth to me asked about my daughter once when she was born in November and never again. I really don't know what to do, this isn't the area I grew up and the people I had helped in the past who said if I ever had any problems come see them have all very quickly disappeared. I think it might be best if I stop the parental assessment, I truly feel like a failure at this point. I don't know what I can offer my daughter other than love but that won't feed and clothe her, she might be better off outside of my care. I don't know I'm just tired of everything right now, I have no idea what's the right thing to do

2020.01.29 14:38 sgil94 £1700 budget for gaming pc.

Hi folks! I have created a build on pcpartpicker but I'm not 100% sure about suitability or even compatibility. I’m worried the motherboard won’t fit with the graphics card and all the fans, and also not sure if anything is outdated. Also, I think the motherboard is compatible with ryzen, so that means I won't have to update the bios, right?
https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/useS.gilchrist94/saved/ZZ4qpg
I've read u/eidercollider's post... https://www.reddit.com/buildmeapc/comments/cjdo4o/please_help_me_design_a_new_amd_gaming_mostly/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=web2x
from six months ago and it seems like we're looking for the same thing. If the builds recommended there will still be up to date I'm happy to have a closer look at those.
Otherwise, if anybody has any suggestions, then here is what i'm looking for;
What will you be doing with this PC? Be as specific as possible, and include specific games or programs you will be using.
Gaming is pretty much the only thing I'll be using the pc for, games including Cities Skylines, Transport Fever 2, Train Sim World. Looking to hopefully run at high settings.
What is your maximum budget before rebates/shipping/taxes?
£1700
When do you plan on building/buying the PC? Note: beyond a week or two from today means any build you receive will be out of date when you want to buy.
Straight away.
What, exactly, do you need included in the budget? (ToweOS/monitokeyboard/mouse/etc)
Tower (everything),
OS (windows 10 home)
Keyboard and mouse (quiet, compact, black)
Already have a monitor.
Which country (and state/province) will you be purchasing the parts in? If you're in US, do you have access to a Microcenter location?
UK, Glasgow.
If reusing any parts (including monitor(s)/keyboard/mouse/etc), what parts will you be reusing? Brands and models are appreciated.
N/A
Will you be overclocking? If yes, are you interested in overclocking right away, or down the line? CPU and/or GPU?
I’m interested, but probably not now, I think I'll build the pc and look into it in the future.
Are there any specific features or items you want/need in the build? (ex: SSD, large amount of storage or a RAID setup, CUDA or OpenCL support, etc)
SSD, would like wireless internet built in but it's not necessary.
Do you have any specific case preferences (Size like ITX/microATX/mid-towefull-tower, styles, colours, window or not, LED lighting, etc), or a particular colour theme preference for the components?
Not looking for anything flashy, I want it to be stylish and subdued, preferably no bright flashy lights.
Do you need a copy of Windows included in the budget? If you do need one included, do you have a preference?
Yes, Windows 10 Home
Extra info or particulars:
This will be my first build
Sorry if I've missed out any info, will be happy to provide.
Thanks for your help folks!

Interview with magician Lee Asher (President of 52 Plus Joker American Playing Card Collector Club)

Who is Lee Asher?

I first came across the work of Lee Asher many years ago. At that time I was exploring my long-time interest in card magic, and Lee had made some good contributions in that area. One of his signature tricks that he is well-known for is an ace routine called the Asher Twist. If you enjoy card magic, you'll appreciate the cleverness involved and the impossibility it apparently creates. Lee is skilled magician, and his name will be familiar to many from his work as a magic consultant.
But Lee Asher's credentials extend much further than the contributions he's made as a magician. Self-described as a "playing card and sleight of hand expert", it's especially his expertise in the area of playing cards that will interest most readers of this article. When my personal interest in playing cards was revived in the last number of years, I kept coming across his name in several places. When researching things like the iconic Jerry Nuggets Playing Cards, I came across his outstanding article on the subject. While looking up information about dating playing cards, his name popped up yet again, once more with a very informative and authoritative article about this. Via the official online portal for the 52 Plus Joker American Playing Card Collector Club, PlayingCardForum.com, I learned that Lee is in fact the current President of this highly respected organization for collectors of playing cards.
All this is to say that when it comes to experience with playing cards, it's hard to think of someone with finer credentials than Lee Asher. From his personal experience as a magician and a collector, as well as his involvement with 52 Plus Joker and as President, it's obvious that he knows what he's talking about. And fortunately for us, Lee was happy to talk to us, agreeing to this interview, in which he answers questions about himself, about playing cards, about collecting, and of course about 52 Plus Joker. So let's hand it over to Lee, and hear what he has to say!

The Interview

General background
For those who don't know anything about you, what can you tell us about yourself and your background?
My name is Lee Asher. I'm 42 years old, and I'm a second-generation sleight of hand artist. My father taught me magic at the ripe age of seven. When I was about fifteen, I started performing magic for money at restaurant and private gigs. Eventually, I moved from my birth state of Florida all the way to Las Vegas, Nevada to attend University and study casino management (UNLV).
Directly after graduating in 1999, I threw all my possessions into a Las Vegas storage locker and chased my heart to Paris, France. During this sublime period of my life, I also traveled around Europe performing and teaching my brand of sleight of hand to other magicians.
Once I conquered Europe, I began performing and lecturing around the rest of the world in cities such as in London, Singapore, Buenos Aires, Copenhagen, Kuala Lumpur, Perth, Shanghai, Taipei, Santo Domingo, Beijing, Tokyo, Glasgow, Tel-Aviv, Hong Kong - and the list goes on and on.
Eventually I moved back in the Americas. Now I live in Canada, married to the woman of my dreams. My wife's name is Christina. And while we have no children, we have a big lovable boxer dog named Quinton.
What do you currently do for a day job and/or what are your other interests?
I'm a magic consultant, magician and playing card expert. In my spare time, I like collecting antique, vintage and modern playing cards. I also like creating sleight of hand and other fun moves. But when I'm not holding cards, I'm reading, cooking, watching movies or playing card games with my wife.
Given that you have had a successful career in magic, what would be some highlights in your personal curriculum vitae?
I'm fortunate. I have a bunch. Here are a handful of highlights that mean the the world to me: ● 1993 - Performed with my father as a walk-around magician on Miami's exclusive, Fisher Island. ● 1996 - Performed at the Magical Empire, a 66 million dollar attraction at Caesar's Palace, Las Vegas. ● 2001 - Lectured at London, England's prestigious Magic Circle on September 10th, 2001. ● 2005 - Performed as an Absolut Vodka ambassador during their 'Magic of Winter' campaign using the now famous Absolut cards. ● 2016 - Magic celebrity judge on Amazing Magicians with China's most famous movie actress, Fan Bing Bing.
What sparked your interest in magic to begin with, and what is it about magic that you still love today?
My father. He's a eye doctor by day, and a magician at night. He's how I got interested in the art of magic. Adequately reflecting on his significance in a mere several hundred words is impossible. Nonetheless, I’d like to share some interesting facts with you about my dad, Mark Horowitz.
Let’s back up to the mid-1950s when my father was a child. New York City was a hotbed for magic in the United States, only rivaled by cities like Chicago & Los Angeles. Fortuitously, Dad learned from a handful of New York’s finest magicians. Mega legends like Al Flosso and Lou Tannen nurtured his love for the art. These men taught my father the foundations of magic. You can say these formative experiences helped mold him into the magician that Dad is today. On occasion, you’ll hear him reminisce fondly about spending time in those famous NYC magic shops.
BTW, Dad never became a full-time pro. Though he managed to support himself with magic gigs throughout university and optometry school. After graduating, he became a licensed optometrist with his own practice. He also became the resident trade show magician for Swan Optical and HydroCurve, a major contact lens company owned by Revlon. On top of his day job, Dad flew around the nation entertaining high-ranking executives and high-profile clients of the optical industry. Without a shred of doubt, my father paved the way for me to be a professional magician.
Moreover, if you've met him before, then you’ll know that Dad indulges by collecting artifacts from his youth. If it triggers fond memories of his illustrious past, he collects it. Of course it's impossible to own everything. So like any seasoned collector, he's refined his tastes over the years. Currently, he prefers acquiring magic-themed comics, autographed magic books and unique magic ephemera. His lifelong passion for collecting led him to amass the world’s largest magic comic book collection. This impressive feat landed him on the cover of MAGIC Magazine in April 2007.
During an early point in his life, my father immersed himself in the political side of magic. Year after year, he's generously helped organize IBM magic meetings, lectures and conventions on a local, state, and nationwide levels. To this day, he’s still involved with his local IBM magic club's affairs.
There's no question that his lifetime of remarkable dedication and outstanding service to the organization exemplifies his genuine reverence for the art of magic. While the word count on my heartfelt tribute here answering your question will sadly run out, the love I have for my father will not.

About playing cards
What kind of playing cards did you first use when you started magic?
My dad had already amassed a bunch of decks from years of performance and collecting, so my earliest memories of holding cards and practicing are with US Playing Card Company (USPCC) 808 Series Bicycle 'Rider' backs. Not too long after, I found Tally-Ho's, Bees, Blue Ribbons, and Aristocrats. Eventually, other brands like Hoyle (shell backs) made their way into my hands, too.
As you know, these are all American-made decks. So the first European deck I touched was in 1989. I was thirteen. It's also when the Klutz Book of Card Magic was released. It came with a bridged-sized deck of Piatnic playing cards. They were glorious! I never felt such a thick, smooth, robust deck of cards. My adventures with European decks would not end here. More on that later.
Do you use playing cards for anything other than card magic? (e.g. card flourishing, card games, or anything else?)
Sure. I play card games with my wife all the time. Lately, we've been enjoying a lot of Monopoly Deal (made by Cartamundi). She's savage and plays a mean game of cards. I hardly ever win!
As for flourishing, I still dabble. Though, I don't have the time to practice as much of it as I should. It's true what they say; you must use it, or you lose it. Back in the day, I was influenced by renowned skateboarders like Stacey Peralta and Rodney Mullen. I introduced aerial moves to the flourish culture like ‘Yo’ (1997), ‘Diving Board Double’ (1997), and rail slide-esque techniques like the ‘Silver Surfer’ (1998).
Unquestionably, I'm exhilarated by this new generation of cardists and magicians. It also thrills me when I see people playing with my techniques. For instance, a simple search yields hundreds of videos of young people performing these moves. It's an honor watching the material grow larger than I could have ever imagined.
What do you think are the essential qualities of a good deck of playing cards in terms of design?
I'm a magician. Thus, I'm answering like a magician. I need a deck of cards that people can recognize. For instance, if the courts are beautifully customized but no one realizes they're looking at a King of Clubs, then the design hinders the performance.
I also believe the cards should be somewhat symmetrical, though I'm open to interpretation. There are some beautiful one-way patterned decks. Plus, if subtle enough, the one-ways help me achieve some stunning magical effects! Shhhhh.....
What should buyers today look for in a quality deck of playing cards?
Honestly, a majority of buyers aren't aware of the diverse qualities found in playing cards. There are a plethora of options available on the market today.
My advice: Buy a few decks made by different manufacturers --from around the world-- and start playing. Gather your own empirical evidence. Do you like cards feeling thick? What about thin? Embossed? Or smooth? Believe it or not, this is a personal journey. You never know, you might discover something new about yourself along the way.
The playing card industry has changed rapidly over the last two decades. Do you have any thoughts on the explosion of custom playing cards?
As the self-proclaimed 'king of playing card geeks', I approve of what's happening. Every day I wake up and see new decks appear for sale from different producers, all around the globe. It's a playing card aficionado's wet dream.
Certainly it doesn’t take a psychologist to comprehend the decks we are attracted to --the ones we use for playing, performance and collect in our vaults-- speak to our own personalities and beliefs. They help make us feel unique, and it’s fair to say all these modern decks cater to this meaningful need.
Simply put, they offer a bit of happiness to those who find part of themselves represented within the design, color, and even texture of the deck. Again, I approve.
What impact has crowdfunding like Kickstarter had on the custom playing card industry and collecting? And what has your own experience (if any) with this been like?
Kickstarter and the crowd-funding concept have rewritten the rules on how items are produced and purchased. In 2009, when Kickstarter began, there were under fifty decks launched; now there are hundreds of decks per year looking for funding. Of those projects, at little less than half succeed and find financial backing. In the big scheme of things, that’s impressive!
More important, Kickstarter is where we’re seeing wonderful grass-roots innovation. If the crowd decides that the project isn’t interesting, then the project isn’t funded. So, no one wastes time on unnecessary R&D. The items that receive funding are the items people want. That, in itself, is an innovation. And because of the low risk involved with crowd-funding a project, more avant-garde, ground-breaking concepts are put forth. These kinds of ideas won’t be attempted by any of the larger card producers scared to waste money 'testing the waters'.
But it gets better. The internet encourages fans connecting with artists. Which, in turn, encourages artists pushing the limits on what they create. It’s a beautifully symbiotic relationship.
All the while, playing card manufacturers are looking for innovative ways to accommodate. As a result, ground-breaking innovation and even long forgotten vintage techniques are making major comebacks -- in modern ways.
Where do you think the custom playing card industry will go from here, and what innovations or changes might we see in the coming years?
Roughly ten years ago, I went on record saying most playing card innovation will focus on the tuck box. And that's what happened. We've seen a strong push re-popularizing vintage 'bells and whistles' that were famous in the 1970s. For instance, decks printed with metallic inks, extraordinary embossing, and tricked-out foiling have become vogue again.
Consequently, I believe the next ten years will usher in innovative improvements to stocks and finishes. We've satisfactorily tackled the aesthetic, now it's time to pioneer undiscovered tactile fronts. Companies like Expert Playing Card Co. and Cartamundi already lead the way. Cardistry, magic and card games also help drive innovation.
What can you tell us about the Lee Asher 605 Playing Cards, which you produced yourself?
As I mentioned earlier, my taste for European playing cards came early on. Because I lived in South Florida, you could find Fournier playing cards in certain shops. For those who don't know, this wonderful Spanish playing card company was founded back in 1868. In 1986, they merged with the US Playing Card Company. Now though, Cartamundi owns Fournier. Yet, Fournier continues to keep their unique style of printing which differentiates them from everyone else in the world.
When it came time to print a deck, I had several choices of manufacturers. Ultimately, I picked Fournier. Constant innovation, the desire to improve quality and their exquisite attention to detail makes Fournier a leading card manufacturer. These were my guys! My team worked with Fournier's art department. We scrapped our original thoughts and started to play with the Fournier 505 back design. It's beautiful and classical. We wanted to change it and put it to new use. Once out of pre-production, Fournier's art team dubbed these cards the 'Lee Asher 605 Signature Series'. It was great honor!
Printed on Fournier's best stock, my 605s are heavier and thicker than USPCC's casino-grade cards. Each deck of the 605 series is free of defects, and guarantees a precise slide due to the special varnish formula used. This varnish is exclusive of Fournier and follows a secret formula only known by two persons at the plant. At least, that's the story they told me.
This varnish gives Fournier cards their unique feeling and sliding ability. Plus it also adds to longer durability making them higher in quality than other cards on the market. Afterwards the card sheets dry in an oven and later, pressed. This process also gives the cards more resistance and durability.
Each deck goes through twelve (12) different quality controls along the manufacturing process. It ends in a final Intelligent Eye printing check and an optical infrared light test. This guarantees that each deck contains 55 cards. Unlike other manufacturers, all Fournier decks get cut one-by-one. This way, all cards (including the edges) have exactly the same size.
Without a doubt, you can feel a difference between my high-end 605 series decks and the ones produced in America.

About collecting
You personally have a huge interest in learning about and collecting playing cards. When did this interest begin, and what got you started in collecting?
Again, my father is an avid collector of magic memorabilia and other stuff that reminds him of his childhood. So it's in my blood. I have no choice.
But the playing card side of my habit didn't become apparent until University. That's when I had hundreds of decks littering my dorm rooms and apartment. You'd walk in on any given Sunday and find Jerry's Nugget, Golden Nugget, Desert Inn, Arizona Charlie decks and other random casino cards strewn across the floors. Without a doubt, practicing sleight of hand and cardistry can be messy!
What are some of the reasons motivating people to collect playing cards?
As I mentioned earlier, playing cards speak to our own personalities and beliefs. That means there are many reasons why people collect them. But it usually distills down to two different personalities types: ● Type A - People who collect a specific category, image, artist, brand, feel, reason, etc. ● Type B - People who speculate for money.
Which type are you? The good news is, there's plenty of room for both. The playing card world is inclusive. Also, if you collect long enough, you'll find yourself selling decks to buy other cards. It's natural. Ignore the opportunity to feel ashamed of any capitalist tendencies along your journey.
What are some of the things you personally and especially enjoy about collecting playing cards?
I appreciate the back story. It started with casino decks because of their history. Now I cannot help but notice that during the past decade, my collecting tastes & sensibilities have become refined. What I was originally passionate about back then, now curiously finds itself in the company of other newly formed interests.
Conversely, if you told me back in the beginning that I would find great pleasure in hunting down antique private-die playing card stamps, the younger me would have laughed out loud at the notion. These days, however, I look forward to sharing my label collection with anyone interested in seeing it. I even revel in finding better versions of private-die playing card stamps I already own. Coincidentally, if you are in possession of that almighty Caterson, Brotz & Co. label, give me a call and we will speak.
Within the past several years, I’ve been connecting the dots between U.S. Patents, inventors/artists & the actual playing card products manufactured. I write a monthly article titled the PATENT FILES that should interest any researcher out there. Digging through Google’s digitized patent area has uncovered a real treasure-trove of playing card history & information.
Once again, if you asked the younger me about working on this kind of historical research, I would have scoffed, made several snarky comments and declined. Yet now, all I can do is get excited thinking about it. My, how times have changed.
How many decks would you estimate that you currently have in your personal collection?
Lots. But that means absolutely nothing. Heed the old saying, "quality over quantity". It's impossible to own every deck of cards ever produced. Yet, it's possible to own the best of all the cards produced.
How do you organize and display your collection of playing cards?
Usually, I like my collection sorted by antique, vintage and modern categories. But lately I've been lazy and unorganized, so everything is mixed and thrown together. One of these days, I'll take some time and put everything back into some semblance of order.
Consider me a user as much as I'm a collector. Without a doubt, I play with my cards. But at the same time, they also get shelved to stare at from a distance. Finding a balance between the two has its difficulties.
When it comes to showing off my cards, they aren't presented well; I've got display decks in Carat Cases and what not, but it could be better. My friend and fellow playing card collector, Jay McKinstry (a master craftsman/artisan), asked if he could make some beautiful displays for me. This guy is the Michelangelo of wood craft, and that would be a dream come true.
One of these days, with McKinstry's help, I look forward to everyone appreciating all the cool stuff I've collected over the years.
Do you have any special categories of decks that you focus on collecting, and what are your favourite types of decks to collect?
We can break down American playing card collecting into three categories. Are you a modern deck collector, or maybe you fancy yourself as an antique collector? Vintage? Not sure? The easiest way to tell is by the age of the decks you collect: ● You’re an antique collector if the majority of your deck collection pre-dates the 1930s. ● You’re a vintage collector if the majority of your deck collection dates from 1931 to 1995. ● You’re a modern collector if the majority of your deck collection dates from 1996 to today.
It seems, the more you learn about playing cards in general, the more interesting each category becomes.
While I consider myself a vintage card collector, I’m the proud owner of some wonderful antique decks as well as a plethora of modern decks. That makes me a hybrid playing card collector. Apparently, we're a growing breed!
What would the most valuable deck in your collection be, and what accounts for its value?
Everybody is quick to speak about value, but no one ever discusses the worth of sentiments. What's my first European deck valued at on eBay? Maybe $5? $10? For me, it's priceless. So assigning value to my collection is much tougher than it looks. At least, for me. Maybe you feel the same way?
Where can we learn about grading and dating older decks of playing cards?
Pick up a copy of the Hochman Encyclopedia of American Playing Cards by Tom and Judy Dawson. This is the best resource on collecting American playing cards, ever written. They took all of long-time collector Eugene Hochman's research, and compiled it into one big volume. In those pages you'll find discussion about grading and dating your playing cards.
On a side note, if you Google search for info about dating and/or grading your deck, you'll find a bunch of articles relating to these topics. Most, if not all, of this info comes from the Hochman Encyclopedia and/or Tom and Judy Dawson. For instance, here are two links that cover the topics at hand: ● How To Date Your Playing CardsHow To Grade Your Playing Cards
I'm a new collector. Should I go out and buy a deck of 1970s authentic Jerry's Nuggets right away?
LOL! If you love collecting vintage casino decks, then sure. If you're speculating, buy as many as you can. But if you hear these sentiments and feel they're not applicable to you, then I'd suggest spending your money elsewhere. Like I said before, this is a personal journey. Take the time and discover something new about yourself. Collect what you think is worthy of collecting.

The 52 Plus Joker collectors club
How and when did the 52 Plus Joker come about?
In 1985, 52 Plus Joker formed to cater to the interests of American antique playing card collectors. We have long since broadened the scope of the club to include collecting playing cards of all sorts, from around the world. With the internet spurring the recent surge of interest in playing cards; geographical and categorical lines blur daily.
52 Plus Joker community facilitates: ● The collection and trading of antique, vintage and modern collectible playing cards and related items, ● The advancement of knowledge about the history, manufacture and artistic aspect of playing cards, ● The promotion of fellowship among members with similar interests.
52 Plus Joker welcomes you whether you're an experienced collector or newcomer to the world of playing card collecting. If you want more info or would like to join 52 Plus Joker, please visit their official website. For the record, it's the best $25 USD I spend all year long!
In your experience, what have you found to be some of the benefits of being part of a playing card organization like 52 Plus Joker?

When did you first get involved with 52 Plus Joker, and how would you describe what your role as President involves?
This will be my 10th year involved with 52 Plus Joker. I found them back in 2009. By chance, I stumbled upon an online advertisement for the combined 52 Plus Joker / International Playing Card Society convention in Toronto, Canada. Twenty-four hours after registering, my phone rang with the caller ID - THOMAS DAWSON! I already owned a copy of the Hochman Encyclopedia and knew who Tom Dawson was. I became star-struck that a luminary like him would call a neophyte like me.
Turns out he and his wife, Judy, lived in Toronto, too. As soon as Tom spoke, it felt like we were old friends. Within minutes, I he gave me an invitation to come over and see their playing card collection. I’ll never forget that moment. Receiving an invitation was an honor back then and it’s still an honor to reminisce about it now. For Tom though, he was simply acting like a playing card ambassador. There could not have had been a better welcoming committee to 52 Plus Joker.
About a week later, I attended the club's annual convention. WOW! I'd never seen so many unfamiliar decks of cards in my life. I had so much to learn. At one point, Judy Dawson remarked how the club could use a little more youth. She thought young people had little interest in collecting playing cards. Her comment was confusing. Was she unaware of the massive explosion of custom card collecting online? Apparently. Actually, 95% of the club had no idea. Quickly thinking on my feet, I requested some day passes. I blurted out that I could convince ten playing card collectors under the age of 30 to show up on the final day of the convention. Some members of 52 thought I was crazy. Judy was hopeful, but placed little faith in it.
To make a long story short, ten playing card collectors under the age of 30 turned up on the last day of the convention. Obviously, it wasn't hard. This club had yet to introduce themselves to the new generation of card collectors. With my help, that was about to change. I was unanimously voted onto 52 Plus Joker's executive board. They made me 'Head of Publicity'.
That was ten years ago. Since then, I've risen through the ranks. In 2016, I became the youngest president in the club’s existence. Without a doubt, our playing card future illuminates with great opportunity. It’s my pleasure to lead us into this bright light.
What can you tell us about the annual 52 Plus Joker decks?
Of course! I'd love to brag about this. Each year, we ask the some of the greatest playing card designers in the world to craft a club deck. Incredible artists like Jackson Robinson, Paul Carpenter, Mark Stutzman, Alexander Chin and Randy Butterfield have the distinct honor of creating masterpieces for us. Without a doubt, we’re the luckiest club on the planet to work with such amazing talent.
For our 2019 deck, we picked one of Europe's finest playing card designers, Lotrek. He says he’s working on a special deck that’s sure to knock our socks off. Lotrek is a man of his word and we all look forward to what he creates.
If you want to see and own this year's club deck, we release it every year at our annual convention. It's one of the highlights of our entire event.
Each year the club hosts a convention. When is this and what is it about?
We held this year's convention in Charlotte, North Carolina on October 9th - October 12th, 2019. It's a chance to meet legendary collectors & designers, hobnob with premier card manufacturers, and talk decks with other enthusiasts all night long. There's nothing like it in the world.
For more information or if you want to join us at future conventions, please visit here.
What can you tell us about the CARD CULTURE magazine that you are the editor of?
CARD CULTURE was my answer to satisfy the digital end of our membership. Plus, it allowed us to connect with members on a monthly basis. After pitching the idea to Tom Dawson (who was the President at the time), I enlisted Don Boyer as the editor in chief. We also managed to wrangle a handful of writers for monthly articles.
On the 15th of each month, CARD CULTURE gets delivered to your email inbox [sample issue]. Most of our membership consumes it on their tablets or phones. Though, we offer it at a high resolution so you can print it, if you want a hard copy. We try our hardest to impress you on a monthly basis.
Don ran the show up until the 25th issue. After his departure, I took over. In May, we published our 52nd issue!

Final thoughts
Is there anything else you'd like to share about collecting playing cards, or about playing cards?
The playing card world constantly changes. For instance, European card manufacturer Cartamundi purchased United States Playing Card Company. I made a video about it if anyone cares to hear me rant about playing cards: Lee Asher on USPCC's Merger With Cartamundi
We're living in fascinating times, and I look forward to what our future brings! Thanks for allowing me to share my thoughts about playing cards, EndersGame.
If anyone reading this wants to continue the conversation, please email me at [[email protected]](mailto:[email protected]). I'm always interested in meeting other fellow magicians, playing card collectors and enthusiasts. Speak soon.

Conclusion

Lee Asher certainly has a lot to offer and share when it comes to playing cards, and I for one are very grateful that he was willing to do this interview. He has a wealth of knowledge, and his insights are helpful, and his enthusiasm is infectious. If you haven't yet seen it, I highly recommend listening to him talk about Cartamundi's recent acquisition of USPCC [link] - it's obvious that he's knowledgeable and passionate, and you'll learn some fascinating things from what Lee has to say.
Collectors in the United States will also appreciate learning more about the 52 Plus Joker club. If you're really keen, you may even want to attend the annual convention in October. Certainly take a look at what they offer, including the very interesting Card Culture magazine.
Once again a huge thank you to Lee Asher for conducting this interview - I know I've learned a lot, and enjoyed hearing what he had to say. Lee's enthusiasm for playing cards is something that many of us around the world share, and I'm sure I'm not the only one that sees somewhat of a kindred spirit, with our shared love for playing cards.

2019.10.21 17:51 RevolutionaryCamp4 I was a Teenage Werewolf!

This is a story I've wanted to share for a long time. It's too long to drop into casual conversation and also not exactly a matter of pride. Finally, I thought maybe Reddit would be a good place to drop this story just to get it out of my head, and it suits the Halloween season. This is my first time posting on Reddit, so I'm hoping I get the formatting right and don't break any rules. But here's my story, and it's a long one. A story about gay punks, lame cults, and werewolves.
This story takes place in the late 90s/early 2000s. I had grown up in a small town with a fairly inconsequential upbringing. My mom and grandmother were into new age books, to the extend that suburban white ladies were into new age books in the 90s. There was always a new hunk of rose quartz or amethyst on a desk or a new incense burner on the kitchen counter. I wasn't super into it myself, mostly due to a childhood bitterness of having been taken to many "Commune with your guardian angel!" and "Learning about real fairies!" meetings as a preteen. Still, I had a mild interest in the occult. In small town Illinois, you still found a lot of folk magic in the way of traditions and good luck charms. I didn't quite know what to think when my grandmother would tell me to stand barefoot in the garden and thank the Greenman, but it did feel nice and it made her happy.
Not saying anything and agreeing granted access to arcane knowledge.
In 2000, I was starting college. Leaving my small town, I was a little overwhelmed by the sudden crush of people. I had never quite seen crowds like that, and I had never been around so many people I didn't know. That's when I first saw him. He was sitting in the meal hall, hair in a spiked mohawk, wearing a denim vest covered in patches, Doc Martin boots propped up on a chair, reading a David Icke book with the cover facing out, all in a performative way that both required attention and denied engagement. But I did notice two things. One, he was incredibly handsome. Two, in the mash of band patches I could not identify, he had a rainbow pride flag on his vest.
There is a moment for a lot of queer folks when they first meet another person like them. Possibly even moreso in the late 90s, this was the first other gay boy I had ever encountered. I had no idea what to do other than stumble and deliver a terrible, "Hi, I'm gay too, what are you reading?"
He replied in a thick Australian accent, "David Icke. Mostly shite but... ya know, worth a look."
He told me he went by Ceej. (It took until I saw him write it much later to know what he was saying, I had assumed it was Siege or Segue.) He was an international study from Australia. He loved punk music, surfing, and smoking weed. I was blown away. I had never met anyone from outside the country, or anyone who surfed, or anyone who did drugs. I was on board. I sat with him as he started in about the Reptilians. I couldn't tell if he was talking about a fictitious book or real life, but I didn't say anything.
Not saying anything and agreeing granted access to cute Australians.
We hung out several times from then on out. In story telling, it's hard to convey the negative space in these stories. We met, then several days of me trying to figure out where my classes were. We would meet again and just talk about music and swap some CDs. Then some days, he'd go on long rants about leylines or biorhythms or auras. I'd been told I had a "nice aura" from many women in many boho skirts, so I was happy he agreed. I had never spent time with another gay person, so I wasn't sure if this was dating or are we friends or where do we go from here?
For all his rants about conspiracy theory, he was particularly good at math. He helped me out with first college level math courses, and in return, I'd let him rave about the men in black are no where near as fun as in the movie. At most, I offered a "I liked that animated series." I think he found it charming.
One November night, bundled up against the cold and walking back to the dorms, he stops to look up at the full moon. Despite the cold, he chose that spot to stop and light and cigarette and start to go off. Of all his rants, this is one I remember the clearest."You know the asteroid belt, right? Big gap between mars and Jupiter? Used to be another planet there till the whole thing was blown to bits, turned to dust and spread though the sky as the asteroid belt. You know what did it?" He took a hit from his cigarette for emphasis. "Dragons. At least, closest thing we could associate with em. Aliens, reptilians, great beasts in the sky, shattered the whole thing. They got close to the earth, but..." He pointed up at the moon overhead. "Trapped it in the moon. Early humans who still had primordial magics created it. That's why a lot of early civilizations don't mention the moon and then it's suddenly there. See, the moon is hollow. That's why it echos like a bell. Moon's a tulpa. As long as we keep looking up at it, it reinforces the shell around that evil. It's also why it has so much magic potential, why ever culture has traditions and beliefs and magics that surround the moon. We all know it's important and to stay reverent to it. Just like it sets the tides, it also pulls the fluids in our body, helps unlock our potentials."
He had finished his cigarette and said, "You're handling this pretty well. You know, I told one guy this and he just went totally insane. The fact that you can hear this without being driven crazy means you're special."
Not saying anything and agreeing means cute Australians think you're special.
He leaned in real close. "I'm a werewolf, you know. I'm starting to think you might have some potential in you. I knew that's why I liked you from the moment I saw you. I think it's about time I get you inducted into the pack." Sadly, I had hoped all the buildup was leading to my first makeout session but instead he pulled back and we finished our walk home. Again, the negative space between events, I thought about that moment a lot. An oh-so-casual "I'm a werewolf." It felt different. In all his ranting, it was always about things that could not be understood. This was the first time he referred to himself as anything, apart from occasionally using words like "magus" or something he saw while lucid dreaming.
Later that week, he got me set up online in the library's computer lab. It's a little strange and really places this story in 2000, but I didn't have much experience with the internet apart from the required courses. But he helped me get my first Yahoo email address and set up on the newly released Yahoo Messenger before finally gaining me access to an online forum for other actual, real werewolves.
Before this moves in the Act 2 that is my time with the werewolf pack, it's worth concluding on Ceej. Without warning, he left college after one semester. Not surprising, as I don't think I ever saw him go to class, which meant he'd forfeit his student visa and need to go home. It wasn't until halfway through winter break that he signs onto messenger to let me know he wouldn't be back but that I should keep up with him through the forums and through Messenger.
I guess werewolves can't get past INS.
In his parting gift, Ceej got me an invite to a locked forum. There's no real timeline to this second act, as it quickly becomes the next 4 years and a part of everyday life. It's best to explain a few things early on, particularly the concept of shifting. Shifting was the concept of transforming into a werecreature and typically came in three forms.
S-Shifting was Spiritual, it involved communicating with a spirit animal, typically described as feeling a phantom tail or ears or an emotional response.
M-Shifting was Mental, giving up your human thoughts to mentally turn into your creature.
And P-shifting, the most elusive, was Physical Shifting, those who could turn into actual, real werewolves.
The forum had a clear pack structure, too.
Omegas were prospective members. They were hopefuls who had yet to prove themselves and their spiritual ability as werecreatures. Typically, no one stayed an omega for long, all it took was a post of "I meditated and I saw a white wolf and I know what it meant!" and you were granted status as a pack member. You may now include "Member of the Shadow Wolves" in your forum signature. There was one poor soul who just couldn't clear that hurdle and lingered on as the pack omega, posting another "I keep meditating and I don't see anything!" Only to be met with "Maybe you're just not a werewolf. Sorry, man."
Members were the rank and file. All werecreatures of various degrees and species. We mostly kept among ourselves, as the three ranks above us were the inner circle. We received their messages and then would take to our own section of the forum to discuss what we had read.
Gammas were the spiritual advisors, and those that could reliably S-Shift. They would routinely post fairly detailed essays about werepanthers of Africa, kitsune of Japan, a discussion of how Greek gods were depicted as able to assume animal forms and thus, shapeshifters are close to godliness.
Betas were enforcers, typically dealing with any minor arguments or handing down word from the alphas. They could reportedly M-shift. The most longlasting beta was a werebear who wished to embrace his Viking heritage and become a Beserker.
And at the top were the alphas, who supposedly could P-shift, physically becoming wolves under the moonlight. They only spoke with the inner circle of the pack, handing down the secret wisdom and promising to pass on the ability and knowledge of P-shifting to those proven worthy. The alpha female did not speak much about her origins, though the alpha male's story was whispered and shared in many IMs. He supposedly was the descendant of Scottish Wulvers. His father had fallen into some rough business with Glasgow organized crime. One night, the house was raided and his family was killed in front of him. In the panic, he ran and transformed for the first time. He ran through the night, remaining a wolf for several days before changing back. He stole some clothes and snuck on a boat to the UK and finally to America. He joined the Air Force upon arrival, aided by his newly improved hearing and vision.
I guess werewolf CAN get past INS.
After being moved up, I made my official introductions and was immediately messaged by my first werewolf. "Hello, I am Alec from Austria! You are American! I love your Batman the Animated Series and Tiny Toons! America has the best cartoons!" It turns out... werewolves are super nerdy. Nerdy in a way I had never experienced in a small town. Still watching cartoons in my teenage years had been nearly a secret shame. Now, being a werewolf meant being both openly gay and openly discussing how much I loved hiding out in my dorm room and watching Angry Beavers.
If trying to explain the negative space of my first 6 months of college was difficult, let me try to explain the next 4 years of my life. I'd check the forums and load my instant messenger at night in the library after class to check up with everyone. I had gone from shy, closeted, and fairly lonely to suddenly being overwhelmed with friends who excitedly ranted about how Super Sentai was WAY more than just the Power Rangers. Soon, I got my first student apartment and an old laptop that stayed plugged in next to the couch that faced the TV. My den.
On top of that was the daily mantra. You're a werewolf. If you ever doubt it, you're wrong. You're a werewolf. If you agree, great, we all love that you're a werewolf. You can only be told something so long before you start to believe it. I started to meditate, to spend more time outside, to eat a diet with more raw foods and fewer processed foods. I was in the best shape of my life and I walked with an additional confidence in knowing that I was special. I'd take those nights on campus to look up at the moon, reaffirm it to keep that shell strong, and be thankful for my new life as a werewolf.
With time, I had forgotten that I wasn't always a werewolf. My social awkwardness as a kid was the result of not knowing I was a werewolf. My social circle included Vikings and Shamans. And life couldn't be better. Some members came and went with time. Notably, Ceej just stopped posting one day, but there were always new hopefuls who had found their way to our totally 90s "Star background and teal text with animated Jon Talbain sprites" website and made it into the forum. With newcomers, that also meant I grew to have seniority, a well established member of the community.
I even took time during breaks from school to go and visit my packmates as my new unshakable family, sleeping on couches... when they were lucky enough to have a couch. There was a trend with a lot of these werewolves living in kind of trashy places. It was OK, though, clearly society discriminated against us, and that's why so many of these werewolves were living in shitty apartments in bad areas of Milwaukee, watching old CRT TVs sitting on top of a milk crate. All I cared was that we were werewolves and we were going to go out into the alley and howl our asses off before scurrying back inside in case anyone peaked out from the neighboring units.
With my seniority, I had also received rare messages from the alphas. The alpha female was known for contacting people who needed prayer. She was a Priestess of Luna and would put in a good word to the Moon in case you had a sick relative or needed additional blessing. Given I managed to somehow pass college, I won't discount her ability. She was very motherly but kept a respectful distance, not wanting to talk at all about herself and only wanting to know where I needed the most help. The Alpha male also messaged me, letting me know he was hoping to one day bring me into the inner circle. He saw potential in me for having stayed so long. His communications were sporadic, but he would give me exact dates and times to howl, letting me know he'd howl at the same time to connect us across the distance.
Four years. Before I tell the end of all this, I want to reflect on that. 2001 to 2005 and by the end, I was thoroughly convinced that one day, I'd hulk out into a wolf and run wild in the woods somewhere, often looking around my shabby student apartment, hoping I'd have the mental acuity to not destroy my stuff. It's fairly clear that I was in a cult... but kind of a shitty one. All that was ever asked of me was to meditate, to read reports about Peter Stumpp's werewolf belt, and to join in a group howl. I wonder if I had been asked to relocate, would I have? If someone promised me the ability to turn into a werewolf and the prospect of living with all of my packmate, I'd probably jump at it. If they had asked for money? I didn't have any to give, but what price would you pay to turn into a werewolf? Thankfully, it never came to that, but I have an extreme sympathy for cult survivors now.
After all, don't say anything and agree, and maybe you'll get to turn into a werewolf.
In late 2005, I made a post. Just as a clumsy "Hi, I'm gay too, what are you reading?" had started it, a lone sentence would end it. I posted, "Really excited about this Chronicles of Narnia movie."
A reply popped up from a newer member, "I think it's terrible that they treat wolves as the minions of the villain while I lion is treated as the hero. Lions eat their cubs! What disgusting creatures, not at all like the noble family unit that wolves have!"
Little did he know, a werelion was in the group. "I think you're misguided about lions. Lions are very important to me, and I think you're being rude."
A third reply, from a longtime member, "Fuck you, Brad."
And it was on.
"Fuck you, you never wash any dishes, your bathroom is disgusting, and you've got time to sit on the internet and complain about lions. Fuck yourself."
"No, man, fuck you, at least I pay my rent on time."
The gammas stepped in to call for peace and meditation before being cut down with a "I'm not taking spiritual advice from a guy who took money from his mom for interview clothes and spent it on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles action figures." Insults were coming from all directions. Everyone had something to say about someone else. The original posters had already abandoned the thread as more replies flooded in.
The betas stepped in to demand order and respect before a brisk "Aren't you sleeping on the floor in your 18 year old girlfriend's parent's house? You've always been a dirtbag."
And finally, the alpha spoke, a simple message. "We are disbanding the pack. We will rebuild one day."
I was acutely aware of my surroundings. Sitting in my apartment, TV on in the background, sun setting outside. In an instant, the spell was broken. We weren't werewolves. We had been so eager to convince ourselves and it only took one argument to undo everything we had built. I stumbled up to my feet, collected all the plaster wolf figurines, the stuffed wolf plushes, the Wolves 2005 calender, put them in a box, and put the box in the back of the closet. I check messenger and no one was left online. I went to sleep for the first night in 4 years without the blissful confidence that I was something special.
Time passed. Some people tried to make their own packs, but the illusion was never as strong. I didn't want to play pretend with these guys anymore. And just the same, college graduation was the following week. By that point, I walked in my robes with that regret turning into embarrassment. I was being awarded a Bachelors of Science and I had seriously thought I was a werewolf. I felt like I should apologize to the dean and return it.
In the gap between graduating in December and starting my career in January, I went to visit one of the pack. A Lakota who had joined earlier that year but always maintained a loose involvement. It was my first time on a reservation and we hung out in his trailer. He told me he had enjoyed the bizarre reverence all these nerds had shown him an his "Native traditions," even though they never seemed to have any clear idea what those traditions WERE. I confided that I was struggling with this loss, that nothing seemed to make sense anymore.
"You know what my tribe name translates to? The name our elders gave me? Swimming Turtle. Ain't that some shit? All of you got to be wolves and bears and lions and I get to be a turtle. Everyone's looking for something to make themselves feel special, and now that's gotta come from within. You're a good dude, and you're unequivocally ordinary and human."
Two years pass, and I settle into real life. I go through a series of 6-8 week relationships that I encourage everyone to try in their 20s. I finally got those first make-outs and more, some good, some bad. I enjoy the peak comforts of drinking beer and watching 2006 Adult Swim with a laptop humming on my thighs. And one stray Tuesday night, I get a message.
"Hello cub." It was the alpha male. In an instant, I was transported back to being 18. I was in awe, my heart pounding in my chest. "It's time to rebuild the pack. I'm going to be taking a roadtrip. I'd like to see you this weekend to discuss things. Where can I meet you?" I typed my address and then in a moment of clarity, I deleted it and wrote the address of a local park near my office. I took my lunches there on slow days and was familiar with the area. We confirmed the time, and I spent the next several days in anxious anticipation.
At last, the Saturday came, sitting in the beautiful afternoon in the park, watching people jogging and families out at the playground. A black car pulled up. For a moment, I realized I had expected to see a wolf stepping out from the tree line but of course, he would need to drive. Out stepped a bald, chubby, Scottish man. I rose to my feet and immediately realized I was taller than him, but in a moment, he clamped a hand on the back of my neck and pulled me into a hug, lowering my head to his shoulders to keep me lower than him. I was shaking. I was meeting a God.
We settled into the picnic tables under the pavilion and made some small talk. Yes, I had been well since school. I wasn't dating anyone seriously, though I did have a first proper date planned with a security guard from near my office. We had 'drinks' before, but this was the first actual date. I didn't know what else to tell God. I tried to ask him, "So... how is your mate?"
"Who?"
"The priestess, the alpha female."
"Oh, we weren't seriously mates. She wasn't really a wolf. We broke up a while back."
"Oh... You keep up with anyone else?"
"Not really."
"Oh..."
He placed his hands over mine, "And that's why it had to be you. I always knew you were special. I had always wanted to promote you up. Not just my beta. I think you're ready to become an alpha yourself. We'll need to build packs together. In the next 10 years, the end times are coming. An era of great darkness is coming and it will take spiritually aware people to hold it back. We need alphas helping people realize their potential. I think you're ready to learn how to become a wolf and how to shift."
My heart was jackhammering. It was real. I was about to become a real werewolf.
"It's a simple ceremony though it's powerful magic. I need to share myself with you, to make you part of my bloodline. I'm going to need to fuck and breed you."
In that moment, I shot out of my body, just fully disassociating. I was floating upward, looking down at myself in the pavilion. I could see my office building over the tree line. I could look back and see the road back towards my apartment. There was the liquor store I liked to hit up on Friday nights and the pizza place that treated me extra nice. Through the static in my head, I could hear him talking about "primordial magics" and "feral energies" and "for the good of all Mankind" but I was far removed from myself in that moment. I thought of security guard dude, with his bashful mannerisms and his way of rattling off sports trivia I couldn't understand... I knew it wasn't going to go anywhere, but... was I really going to let this guy from the internet rawdog me while I had a date pending? I thought about the drive he must have taken, across two states, over 12 hours, just to see me.
And I crashed back down into my body and erupted in laughter. I couldn't help it. A werewolf just asked to fuck me. I couldn't stop, I held my sides, laughing uncontrollably at the audacity of the situation. He frowned as I raised my hands in apology, trying to explain that it wasn't him, I just hadn't been expecting it.
"So?" He said.
"...No." I answered. He looked shocked as I got up to my feet. "I'm sorry, I've got a date planned, and I don't go raw, and I really don't think I'm into this stuff anymore." I started towards my car as he moved towards me, raising his voice, trying to not draw too much attention from families in the park.
"You don't understand. The world depends on this, on us. You're really throwing all this away?"
"I am."
"This has been your dream, cub! I'm offering it to you!"
I got in my car as he stared at me through the windshield. He walked towards the car and knocked on the window. I unrolled it a crack and said the last words I would hear from this embodiment of God. "Hey... can you at least spare me a couple bucks for the tolls out of town?" I handed him $5 in singles and drove back home.
The date, as expected, was a bit of a dud. I never heard from the alpha again, though I do occasionally see him around twitter, seeming to have distanced himself from his previous life, just posting thirst traps and cruising for tail. Ceej would message me once to tell me he was in rehab for meth and needed to apologize to the people he had wronged. He didn't specify how he "wronged" me but he apologized to me. I didn't hear from him again, though I've searched his old username to find posts on a surfing forum. With time, even Yahoo messenger was shut down, and the forums were totally scrapped. All the records and contacts were gone and it was just this waking dream.
I think about all of it a lot, especially that last encounter. What if he was serious? What if I could be turning into a wolf in the woods and commanding my own pack of followers who I would groom to sharpen their spiritual powers. And whenever something goes wrong in the world, I think about those threats of the end times, wondering if I had a hand in them by not putting out for a dirty old man who drove all day to get shut down in a public park.
This has been a long story. I feel lighter having finally shared it. A story of a lack of identity, 90s new age nonsense, early internet culture, and a failed bootycall that may have doomed the universe. I still try to hold myself up with the confidence I had as a werewolf, though I am amazingly ordinary and human.
Though I do still stop to look up at the moon and reaffirm the shell. Just in case.

2019.10.13 15:35 JayDeePea Total newbie guide

Hey everyone,
My friend is totally new to both Reddit and RAOC. I was showing him the cards and stuff and he was interested in taking part, so I've put together this little 'guide' for him. Tell me what you think? Anything to add, take away etc? Feel free to reuse anywhere. I'll be directly linking him to this post.
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Reddit

Reddit is a social news platform that allows users to discuss and vote on content that other users have submitted. To help police the site and prevent spammers from bombarding readers, Reddit came up with “karma” points. Users get karma by their comments and links being up-voted by others in the community
When I first joined Reddit 8 years ago, I was a bit bewildered by the layout, but you get used to it. On Reddit, there is a 'front page' where it shows the popular posts of all the subs you are subscribed to. A sub is a forum of a topic - such as /UKPolitics which users share articles and other news about politics in the UK. /AskReddit is where people ask questions about basically anything and have other people respond. Then there's stuff like /Funny and /gaming, which do what they say on the tin really. Every sub has a brief description of it on its page. Reddit auto subscribes you to I think 10 - 20 to start with, but you're free to unsubscribe from them and refine your front page a bit more. All you need to do is visit the sub, and click the unsubscribe button to stop it appearing on your front page.
You can also navigate to a sub by going to www.reddit.com/
As the description at the top said, you can 'upvote' and 'downvote' (you might see some people calling it updoot) content by clicking the up and down arrows beside every comment, and beside every post. Upvoting a comment or post will usually bring it closer to the top. You can also spend money on giving people 'gold' or 'platinum' if their comment or post was particularly helpful or funny or whatever, but you never have to spend money here.
---------------------------------------------------------------------

RandomActsofCards

/RandomActsOfCards is a sub which people post exchanges, offers, requests for all type of cards. The most popular form exchanged in my opinion is postcards. The sub is also referred to as RAoC;
This is a subreddit for anyone who would like to give or receive a card for any reason, be it for you or for someone you know. They may be birthday cards, sympathy, support, as a special surprise, a get well soon, something silly or anything you can think of. Cards of all kinds are accepted here whether they are hand made or picked out at a store. The purpose of Random Acts of Cards is to spread a little bit of joy around the world.
I'd recommend checking out the sub rules and stuff on the subreddit page. You can get to it just by clicking this - /RandomActsofCards . Scroll down and look on the right side - you'll find the RAoC wiki page with further explanations and below that, you'll find the sub rules.
A big rule is to never share your or anyone else's info publicly. Addresses should be sent via private message only. Thanks raggycatempress
Your posts should contain the relevant info in it's title, seen below with [type] Thanks ninajyang
An [exchange] [Country to Country] is basically a card for a card. You can have the exchange open for as many exchanges as you want, making it either first come first served, by certain criteria, or random - entirely up to you. Once you select the people you're exchanging with, you would send them a private message by clicking their name, clicking 'More Options' below their picture, then send message. A lot of people prefer you send messages rather than use the Reddit chat.
An [offer] A [request] [Country] is a request to receive cards - this dosent need to be to you directly, you could for example request cards for your sisters birthday.
When you receive a card from someone on RAoC, it's common curtsy to give them a thank you - you'd do this by making a new post on the sub, ensuring it starts with [Thank You] followed by a little a bit of info. On the post, you'd 'tag' the user by typing their username like this - JayDeePea . The refers to a user, while / refers to a subreddit. You'd also type their name in the comments as a reply to the post as this gives them a notification, so they can check out your thanks.

If you have any questions feel free to ask me or anyone in this friendly community. It's like a big family all over the world in here. I've made so many new friends, from my NSFW friend BeanutPutterSammich with a salty sailor neighbor, to the fantastic mods of RAoC such as /stephkempf who manages the RAoC instagram page. Soon you'll get addicted to buying the washi tape, wax seals, stickers and more ;)

Sidenote: This sub you're on right now is RAoC_Meta. A place to talk about anything related to the other sub, cards, stationary, etc etc, that you can't post on the main sub. The main sub only allows the four type of posts above - Offers, Requests, Exchanges and Thank Yous.
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Posting Images

A lot of people post links to images of the cards they've received, or the cards they're offering. You can do this via instagram but you're not allowed to share your social media accounts on RAoC Meta - to prevent people spamming their social media to gain internet fame. It's allowed on the main sub though since you're limited on what you're able to post there. So, feel free to use your insta on the main sub to share pics of cards received, or cards you're offering.
Imgur is the go-to place for sharing your images though. You're pretty much allowed to post imgur pictures anywhere on Reddit unless there's a specific rule on a sub forbidding you to do so. go to www.imgur.com . You have the option of making an account and saving your photos on there, but you don't need to. You can click and drag photos into the site to upload them, or click New Post and upload your pictures from there.
I recommend posting them privately rather than publicly. After they're uploaded, you'll be given a link you can use to copy and paste into your reddit posts and/or comments.
Thanks neeps1379

UK Postage

PRICES BELOW ARE NOW OUT OF DATE. PLEASE REFER TO ROYAL MAIL WEBSITE FOR LATEST
Postage in the UK is pretty straight forward for international mail. There are 3 'locations' each with 3 'tiers' of postage. There's also Economy postage available that's cheaper but takes a good bit longer. I try to avoid using economy. Whenever you post something out of the UK you should stick an AirMail sticker to the envelope or postcard - you can get these from the post office for free. Just ask for a sheet or two.
UK to UK
UK to UK postage you already know about. A second class stamp on a postcard or letter is fine to send it to someone else within the UK. First class just gets it there faster. Large first class if it's thicker like if you stuff an envelope full of goodies.
Europe postage
There are 3 weight limits for postage to Europe for letters;
Up to 10g - This is your postcard postage. It's £1.35 for this which can be covered by a £1.35 stamp, or 2x first class stamps.
Up to 20g - This is if you're sending stuff in an envelope with a bit more weight, like if you add some stickers into the envelope for the person. It's also £1.35 to Europe, but it's a bit different for international mail.
Up to 100g - You probably wont be sending something this heavy, but I have a few times in the past. To Europe it's only £1.60 for standard postage up to 100g. If you buy stamps, do not use your up to 100g world wide stamps on this, as you'd be overpaying.
Worldwide Postage
Up to 10g - again, this is your postcard postage. Same as before, £1.35
Up to 20g - This is a bit more than before. Up to 20g outside of Europe is £1.55. You can use two first class stamps + 15p worth of other stamps, or just buy a £1.55 stamp.
Up to 100g - £2.30. Can use 3x first class stamps + 20p of other stamps.
Economy Postage
Economy has the same price weather its Europe or WorldWide. It's slow and i tend to avoid it.
Western Europe in up to 2 weeks
Eastern Europe in up to 5 weeks
North America in up to 6 weeks
South America, Africa and Asia in up to 8 weeks
Australia in up to 12 weeks
Up to 10g - £1.20 , if you use 2xfirst class stamps, you're overpaying by 20p.
Up to 20g - Same as above
Up to 100g - £1.50

---------------------------------------------------------------------

Other Stuff

This is the card stock I bought to make cards;
https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B06XRVQH1Q/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1
This is the printer I have with HP Instant Ink;
https://www.amazon.co.uk/HP-Deskjet-Printer-Instant-Months/dp/B075DTHV7H/ref=sr_1_9?keywords=hp+instant+ink&qid=1570980159&sr=8-9
This is the papercutter I bought;
https://www.amazon.co.uk/Xcut-12-inch-Rotary-Trimmer-3-Blades/dp/B00ESGBJZC
Though we bought it from CassArt in Glasgow
-------------
Oh, as a little encouragement, I've put up a request for people to send you cards ;)
Happy RAoC everyone!!!!

2019.09.01 16:36 lickity_snickum “He was judged by a jury of his peers and found guilty." ~ says Mark Weigert

... and 9 out of 10 guilters 🤣🤣🤣
So was every previously wrongfully convicted person to date. That’s the very definition of “wrongfully convicted.”
Detractors are quick to rattle off snide comments and one-liners pointing out Avery’s current status or Zellner’s lack of ability.
Another oft-repeated, and meaningless statement is that "there is no evidence" of planting.
Because why? The people who did the planting were/are trying to place the blame elsewhere, thereby leaving no evidence that it was they who’d done it.
Some people have issues with definitions.
If you’re here on your long holiday weekend, looking for something new, I’ve got something for YOU.
Here are a few more:
[...] she's even accused a client of being guilty after she exonerated him. She didn't seem to find out about his "guilt" until he sued her. Funny thing about that.
What dipshit fails to tell their reading audience is:
Zellner puts up her own money and will work all night for men she believes were wrongly convicted, but when one turned on her she didn't hesitate to put him back behind bars. Marcellius Bradford, one of the four men convicted and then exonerated of killing Roscetti, secretly recorded Zellner telling him he would be stupid to drop her and hire a new lawyer to handle his multimillion-dollar civil case over his wrongful conviction. Bradford then tried to use the tape to blackmail her for $3,000. Zellner didn't play. She called prosecutors and then wore a hidden microphone to a meeting with Bradford in which she handed over the money, leading to his arrest. "It's appalling to have gotten them out of prison and then have [Bradford] try to extort money out of me," Zellner told the Chicago Tribune. "I don't care if they switch attorneys. But I am not going to put up with someone trying to blackmail me." [1]
Bradford tried to blackmail Zellner after she’d had his wrongful conviction overturned. Nothing “funny” about that at all.
--
[...] It's like She been getting her little schemes and tricks from watching fictional courtroom drama. She thinks this is an episode of Matlock or Law & Order. Where she can just drop what she believes is a bombshell, then the credits roll with Steven walking out of prison or down the courthouse steps
Several of Zellner’s previous opponents:
Robert Smith, Zellner’s opposing attorney in Kevin Fox’s civil trial, recalls the moment he realized the depth of Zellner's preparation: “She’s smart as the dickens and skilled, skilled, skilled. She makes use of all 52 cards and both jokers if you’re in the courtroom with her.”
James Glasgow, the Will County state’s attorney who agreed to Zellner’s request to retest DNA evidence in the case, also praised her work for the Foxes. That test ultimately led to Fox’s release, and the actual killer, convicted sex offender Scott Eby, eventually confessed in 2010. Zellner was at Glasgow’s office when the DNA results came back excluding Fox.
Karen Seimetz, who represented the city of Chicago in [the Ronyale White civil case], described Zellner as a "fierce and formidable opponent."
"She'll go through a case with a fine-tooth comb," Seimetz said. "I think that's part of what makes her a challenge because she really knows the case and she will find every flaw that there is to find."
At the same time, though, Seimetz described her as very fair, professional, straight-forward.
--
[...] He’s already behind bars. Where he will remain for the rest of his likely short life.
During her illustrious career, Zellner has won many cases that were considered unwinnable. This includes exonerating 17 20 men and winning approximately $110.0 million from wrongful conviction and medical malpractice lawsuits.
--
The BIGGEST takeaway from Zellner’s current post conviction case is THE STATE OF WISCONSIN TRIED TO TRICK ZELLNER INTO DROPPING HER CURRENT APPEAL BY PROMISING HER THAT SHE COULD TEST EVIDENCE FROM THE 2006 TRIAL THAT THEY NO LONGER HAD.
It is a FACT that evidence in the form of bones were “inexplicably” returned to the victim’s family without informing Avery or his attorney, directly defying a Wisconsin statute protecting Avery's right to retain evidence that “may reasonably be used to incriminate or exculpate any person” in Halbach’s murder.
You can form an opinion based on bullshit from a handful of anonymous non-lawyers on an Internet message board (It's SAIG. SAIG are the handful of anonymous non-lawyers), or you can believe the facts.

2019.08.21 13:34 hallelooloo Drag Race UK: A Cultural Primer

Having seen a few discussions around cultural references on Drag Race, I thought I'd make a primer for some cultural things that may come up, in case any non-UK folk want to read up about them. I obviously don't know what will and won't be referenced so I'll just list some things that are well-known in the UK and not known much at all outside the UK. I've left out stuff that I believe to be pretty common/well-known everywhere. I haven't focused on LGBT culture or the drag scene specifically because I'm not LGBT myself and I feel someone else would be better suited to that.

TV Shows

Soaps
So soaps in the UK are broadcast multiple nights a week, year round. These shows have been running for decades and have broadcast thousands of episodes. They tend to be really dramatic and on Christmas day they always have a crazy episode where really wild shit happens. They tend to centre on one town/village/area and usually there's a pub where all the characters congregate. Because they're so widely watched they've historically played a part is starting discussion/debate on issues or moving things forward a bit. (e.g. it was a big deal when a soap had its first gay kiss or trans character).
Eastenders: One of the big two soaps. Set in the East End of London in Albert Square, so we have lots of very East End accents. The pub is called the Queen Vic. Lots of plots involving murder, cheating, the pub burning down, suicide, etc. Usually the episode ends on a cliffhanger and then the iconic Eastenders music comes in. Tends to be pretty serious and there don't tend to be any laughs in an episode. Iconic characters include Peggy Mitchell, Phil Mitchell, Pat Butcher, Dot Cotton, Pauline Fowler, Bianca and Ricky, Ian Beale, Dirty Den Watts. Iconic references include You ain't my muvva, Get outta my pub/Sling your 'ook, RICKAAAY. The iconic theme tune.
Coronation Street: The other big soap. Also called Corrie. The longest running with nearly 10,000 episodes since 1960. It was ground-breaking in the start for just depicting the lives of ordinary working class families. Set in Weatherfield which is supposed to be in Greater Manchester, so the accents are from up North. The pub is called The Rover's Return. Tends to be slightly less dramatic and funnier than Eastenders but it's still pretty dramatic. Iconic characters include Deirdre Barlow/Rashid, Hayley and Roy Cropper, Norris Cole, Tracey Barlow, Gail Platt, Blanche Hunt, Steve McDonald, Peter Barlow, Eileen Grimshaw, Chesney Brown. The theme tune. No individual phrase or moment springs to mind for me for Corrie like for Eastenders, but here are a few articles discussing some of the best moments: [1][2][3]
Emmerdale: Not as big as the first two but definitely the third biggest and I don't know it as well. Set in the Yorkshire Dales, so further North than Corrie and Eastenders and set in countryside rather than city. The pub is called The Woolpack. Lots of characters from the Dingle family. Helicopters seem to crash a lot in Emmerdale for some reason.
Hollyoaks: This soap tends to focus more on younger people and is shot in a way that's a bit unusual for a soap. I've never met anyone who actually watches it but apparently they're out there. The actors pop up a lot on reality shows (covered in later section).
Casualty and Holby City: Don't know anyone who watches these, the only relevant information is that they're both set in hospitals.
The Archers: This is a radio soap and only old people listen to it. It still occasionally gets referenced though. It's the world's longest running drama with nearly 19,000 episodes since 1950.
We're also known to occasionally watch the Aussie soaps Neighbours and Home and Away but you'd have to ask an Aussie about those really.
Older TV Shows
The Bill: A TV show about police officers that ran for nearly 2500 episodes before it ended in 2010. Almost every British actor appeared on this show when they were getting started.
Absolutely Fabulous: Commonly known as Ab Fab. Sitcom starring Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley. Not sure how to characterise this in writing but here are some highlights.
Only Fools and Horses: Sitcom about two brothers (Del (Del Boy) and Rodney Trotter) who are living in a tower block in East London. Del always has schemes to make them rich that almost never work. I feel like nearly everyone in the UK has seen this show somehow. Common references include the iconic van, Del falling through a bar, Batman and Robin and the fact that their friend Trigger thinks Rodney's name is Dave for some reason.
Keeping Up Appearances: Sitcom about a lady who wants to be posh but isn't really. Her name is Hyacinth Bucket but she insists it is pronounced Boo-kay. Her siblings are slobbish and embarrassing and she's always trying to keep people from meeting them. Lots of episodes are on YouTube. I think this holds up surprisingly well honestly.
Father Ted: Set in Ireland and written by an Irish guy but very popular in the UK. Sitcom about three Catholic priests who live together on an island. I honestly think this is one of the funniest shows ever made. Ted is the most serious priest. He still isn't great at all the priest stuff, but he isn't entirely stupid and he is always out to make money. Dougal is child-like and idiotic. Jack is an elderly alcoholic pervert. Small or Far Away? is probably the best known moment, but judge Graham Norton also appeared on this show as a young actor.
The Royle Family: Sitcom focusing on a working class family in Manchester. The members of the family are generally quite slobbish and not very intelligent.
Vicar of Dibley: Sitcom focusing on a female vicar played by Dawn French. She has a very dim assistant called Alice and each of the local people of the village has a distinct personality.
Alan Partridge: A character rather than a show as he's had a few. An inept and bumbling presenter who has lots of awkward moments.
A few more that may be worth googling: Are You Being Served?, Allo Allo, Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps, Grange Hill, Byker Grove
Daytime TV
This Morning: 1000-1230 on ITV every morning. Usually presented by Holly Willoughby and Philip Schofield who've had lots of funny moments together which can be found on YouTube. On Fridays it's presented by husband and wife Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford. They talk to people from recent news stories, preview upcoming TV, offer medical advice, teach cooking and debate current events.
Jeremy Kyle: For Americans, this is somewhere between Jeremy Kyle and Maury. Lie detectors and DNA tests, with a confrontational host. Pure trash TV. Was recently stopped.
Loose Women: Older female celebrities sit about and discuss current events. General known for being awful and a bit hysterical.
Celeb Reality Competition Shows
Strictly Come Dancing: The UK equivalent of Dancing With The Stars. Commonly called Strictly. The celebs always end up getting off with their dance partners.
I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here: B-list celebs get sent to a camp in the Australian jungle for 2 weeks. They're forced to do "Bushtucker trials" which involve nasty tasks like eating bugs and animal parts in order to earn meals for their camp.
Dancing On Ice: Like Strictly Come Dancing but with blades and ice for added danger. Tends to have worse celebs as well.
"Reality" shows
The Only Way Is Essex (TOWIE): This followed the lives of a group of young people in Essex. Essex is stereotypically not very classy and "Essex girls" have a reputation for dressing a certain way (lots of fake tan, hair dye, white stiletto heels, short skirts) and drinking a lot. The show had several breakout stars such as Gemma Collins, Amy Childs and Joey Essex.
Love Island: Loads of people who basically all look exactly the same because they've all used the same surgeon fly out to some Spanish island and get off with one another. I've not really seen much of this so if anyone wants to provide iconic Love Island moments, feel free.
Geordie Shore: The same idea as Jersey Shore but set in Newcastle. (A Geordie is a person from Newcastle, no idea why). I have only seen one episode of this and it involved a girl pissing herself in bed on camera because she was so drunk, and another girl saying she'd have to call her parents to say sorry because she'd had anal sex on telly. I think that sums it up really.
Big Brother: The format is used around the world, but some moments from the UK version are pretty iconic and it has produced a lot of celebrities. Of course there's also the celebrity edition. Nikki Grahame's tantrums and George Galloway pretends to be a cat. Here's a summary of each season with some memorable moments.
More Modern TV
Skins: TV show focused on teens. Very dramatic. Everyone was always on drugs or checking in to psychiatric facilities or randomly dying of a genetic condition or accidentally pregnant.
Inbetweeners: Like the opposite of Skins. Comedy focused on teens but they just have shit boring lives, driving a shitty car, failing to get with girls, embarrassing themselves. This was a more accurate depiction of UK sixth form.
Other popular modern shows: Gavin and Stacey
Other
Gogglebox: Popular show that is on currently that involves watching families watch TV. Sounds weird but it works. Some of the participants are quite famous now.
University Challenge: Quiz competition featuring teams from universities around the country. The questions are considered really difficult so people think you're really smart if you can answer any of them.
Pointless: Quiz show on every evening. Contestants are given a category and they have to find something in that category that the fewest people said. So it's like a reverse Family Fortunes (Family Feud for Americans). Presented by comedian Alexander Armstrong and Richard Osman who was a breakout star from this show.
The Chase: Quiz show presented by Bradley Walsh in which contestants compete against a professional quizzer (the Chaser). Bradley is funny and has had some great moments and the Chasers have become pretty well-known and appear on other stuff sometimes.
Blankety Blank: This was the UK's version of Match Game. It was hosted by Terry Wogan and Les Dawson but in the late 90s it was presented by Paul O Grady in drag as Lily Savage.
Eurovision: Given the audience of this subreddit, I expect this doesn't need too much explanation. But it's a yearly song contest between European nations. It's super camp and insane and fun. The UK always does shit.
Come Dine With Me: People compete to see who has the best dinner party. The narrator is fantastic and it is weirdly addictive. This is an iconic moment.
Panel Shows: These usually feature a changing cast of comedians competing in some kind of "quiz" but no-one actually keeps score. Examples include Mock the Week, 8 out of 10 Cats, Would I Lie to You, QI, Have I Got News For You, and Never Mind the Buzzcocks. Certain comedians appear a lot on these shows, such as Jimmy Carr, Dara O Briain, David Mitchell, Sarah Millican, Jon Richardson and Jo Brand.
Carry On: This really belongs in a film section but it would be one of the only things in there. These were a series of films mostly in the 60s that were very camp with lots of overt double entendres. Kenneth Williams is the most iconic thing to come out of these. You'll often hear Ooo, matron in response to a double entendre.
Ant and Dec: Not a TV show but an iconic TV duo. Ant and Dec have been working together for decades and they win the National Television Award for Best Presenter every single year. They present I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here as well as their own show Saturday Night Takeaway. It's a running joke that you can't tell them apart.
Richard and Judy: Husband and wife who used to present This Morning. They're a bit weird and oversharing and apparently Alan Partridge (see above) was based on Richard.

Music

So I'll just detail a few musical artists who are well known in the UK but never made it big in the US. I'll steer clear of the more modern examples (e.g. Little Mix) because thanks to the internet it's no longer as pronounced as it used to be.
Kylie Minogue: She's an Aussie but she's always done great here. Gay icon. If you only listen to one song/watch one video make it Can't Get You Out of My Head, but she has a long, long discography of hits stretching back to the 80s. She started off on Aussie soap Neighbours and back in the day had a very public relationship with co-star Jason Donovan.
Girls Aloud: Produced by a talent show back in the early 00s. Cheryl Cole started off here before her solo career. Lots of commercial success here. If I had to recommend a song I'd suggest their debut Sound of the Underground but they've had plenty of good hits.
Take That: Take That were a huge success back in the 90s as a boy band with lots of screaming teen girl fans. Robbie, the most popular member, left them, and they then split up. But they reformed in the 00s as older men and had a lot of success again. Gary Barlow is the one everyone knows these days. For Phase 1 Take That I'd suggest Relight My Fire[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JwC1Ctrj6Xk) was huge. Again though, tons of hits.
Robbie Williams: Remember Robbie, who left Take That? Well he was pretty successful in his own right. He was unbelievably popular in the late 90s/early 00s, with a mix of sappy ballads (Angel, She's the One) and all out party tunes (Let Me Entertain You, Rock DJ). For me, peak Robbie will always be Rock DJ.

Random Celebs

Those people who are just...famous, for one reason or another.
Katie Price/Jordan: A former glamour model who has always appeared frequently in celeb magazines for her personal life. Her eldest son is severely disabled and his footballer father has never played a role in his life, so credit to her for all she's done for him. Various scandals/stories involve multiple breast reductions/enlargements, dating a "crossdressing cagefighter", recent drink drive trouble in this unique vehicle. She has 5 children named Harvey, Junior, Princess Tiaamii, Jett and Bunny. She appeared on I'm a Celebrity some years back where she began a much publicised relationship with Peter Andre (see below).
Peter Andre: An Aussie former singer (responsible for this absolute tune). Mostly became a household name through I'm A Celebrity and the relationship with Katie Price and has frequently appeared in celeb magazines ever since. He's now remarried and has 2 children with his wife in addition to 2 with Katie Price.
Kerry Katona: Originally in a band called Atomic Kitten (best known for Whole Again (she's the blonde one)). She was married to Brian McFadden from Westlife (Irish boyband) and after they split up she had a lot of very publicised issues with drugs and mental health. Lots of various tabloid "scandals" over the years including bankruptcy and a string of relationships with various men.
Gemma Collins: Originally famous from TOWIE (see above) but became a bit of a breakout star and now has done some of her own shows. People mostly just like her personality. Here she is interacting with Ms Michelle Visage, here she is falling through a hole in the floor, and here is a compilation of various memorable moments.

Politics

The UK is pretty big on political jokes and humour. Conservatives are currently in power. They're also called the Tories sometimes.
Brexit: I'd need a whole post to explain Brexit but all that you need to know is that in 2016 the UK held a referendum in which people narrowly voted to leave the EU. Everything since then has been a mess and everyone is angry for different reasons.
Boris Johnson: The Prime Minister. Conservative Party. Formerly Mayor of London. Commonly called Boris or BoJo. He looks funny and his floppy hair and bumbling nature was kind of funny when he was a powerless mayor but now he's the PM and it's all quite scary. Acts like an idiot but is probably smarter then he lets on. Some people like him regardless of his actual political view because "He's Boris!"
Theresa May: Previous PM. Conservative Party. Awkward and a bit weird. Kept repeating the phrase "Strong and stable" during the election campaign. Said the naughtiest thing she's ever done is run through a wheat field. Did this.
David Cameron: PM before May. Conservative party. All you need to know is that he allegedly put his dick in a dead pig's mouth.
Ed Miliband: Labour party leader from a few years ago. Generally a solid guy but he was portrayed as being a bit odd and then someone took a photo of him eating a bacon sandwich that was so awkward it has its own Wikipedia article and he lost the election.
Jeremy Corbyn: Current Labour leader. People who like him think he's literally the Messiah. People who dislike him think he's literally Stalin.
Michael Gove: Former Education secretary. Conservative party. Every teacher in the country hates him.
Jeremy Hunt: Former Health secretary. Conservative party. Every doctor in the country hates him. His surname is commonly mispronounced. He once described his own wife as Japanese when she's actually Chinese.
Nick Clegg: Former leader of the Lib Dems (the third biggest party...usually). He was a bit of a phenomenon back in 2010. He became less popular after the election when many people felt they'd been betrayed by the Lib Dems after they went into coalition with the Conservatives who increased student fees.

Stereotypes of Places

We have some very distinct stereotypes of places and people from them here in the UK and I'll try to list a few.
North vs South: In England there's a big divide between the North and the South. Southerners think Northerners are a bit lower class and simple, Northerners think Southerners are posh, unfriendly and weak. We'll argue forever about how to pronounce certain words.
The Midlands: The bit near Birmingham that isn't North or South. They never know where to stand in the North/South debate. They call fizzy drinks "pop".
Brighton: Brighton is the LGBT capital of the UK for reasons I don't fully understand. They have a HUGE Pride event every year. People who live there are often considered to be pretty left-wing and almost hippy-ish.
London: The capital is so many things, but the people from London are generally stressed (from paying insane rent) and don't want to talk to any strangers. They'll insist that London is literally the best place ever though and that they'd never live anywhere else.
Home Counties: This refers to the counties around London and people there are generally considered to be pretty posh. Often people commute into London for work.
Essex: See Essex stereotype described under TOWIE.
Devon/Cornwall: The little bit on its own in the South West of the map. They'll argue for hours about which order you should put jam and cream on a scone. They'll also probably be mad at me for lumping them together. Sorry.
Wiltshire: This is where Scaredy Kat is from and also where I live right now. There is nothing here apart from Stonehenge.
Liverpool: The stereotype of people from Liverpool (also known as Scousers) is that they're low class thieves. It's not particularly fair though, and all the Liverpudlians I've met have been pretty proud of their city.
Yorkshire: How can you tell someone is from Yorkshire? Don't worry, they'll tell you. Extremely proud of their county and still angry at Lancashire over a war that happened in the 1400s. They'll insist Yorkshire Tea is the best tea out there (and to be fair, I don't think they're wrong...).
Newcastle: Newcastle girls never need a coat no matter how cold it gets, and they can drink anyone under the table. Maybe the two are related.
Scotland: Scotland as a whole is generally considered to feel pretty hostile towards the English. Independence narrowly lost in a referendum a few years back but there might be another one yet.
Glasgow: Glasgow is stereotyped as being the grittier of the two biggest Scottish cities, but it also has character. I think it was the comedian Kevin Bridges who said something along the lines of "Glasgow was voted the friendliest city in Europe, and named the murder capital in the same week. So you'll get stabbed, but you'll get directions to the hospital."
Edinburgh: Considered to be more "cultured" than Glasgow. Every summer they host the Fringe Festival which is a huge deal for up and coming comedians and actors.
Northern Ireland: I'm not going to begin to get into the Troubles because this is already a long post, but obviously there are historically some divides in Northern Ireland. A lot of the UK has the tendency to ignore them completely, unfortunately. Their accents are really different from anywhere else in the UK.
Wales: Wales as a whole seems to feel much less strongly about being separate than Scotland does. There's never been much of an independence movement in modern times. The only time they get really patriotic is when Wales are playing Rugby. North Wales is more rural/mountainous than the South and generally people are more likely to speak Welsh and feel strongly about a Welsh identity.

Misc Info

NHS: This is our health service. It's all free. It is like the national religion. We will all defend it to the death and anyone who works in the NHS is basically an angel.
WAGs: This is a term for the Wives and Girlfriends of professional footballers. There's a stereotype of them being vapid glamour models who drive around in expensive cars. This has died down a bit but was really prominent in the 00s.
Education
GCSEs: These are the exams you take when you're about 16. You tend to do all of the standard subjects (Maths, English, Science, etc) plus some options. They used to be graded from A*-G but now they're 9-1.
A Levels: You take these when you're about 18. You only do 3-4 subjects usually. These are graded A*-E. These are usually what determines whether you get into university.
Primary/Secondary School/College: Primary school is the school you go to from about 4 to about 11 years old. After that, terminology changes regionally. Some people go to a "high school" until they're 16 and then to a college, others just go to secondary school. If you stay at school from 16-18 it is usually called sixth form. Pretty much all schools have a uniform up to the age of 16.
UCAS: This is the system you use to apply to university. You get points for different qualifications and you have to write a "Personal Statement".
Student Loan: The government provides student loans for going to university. These loans cover fees (paid direct to the university) and also provide a living allowance (maintenance loan). So when Scaredy Kat says that she is spending her student loan on drag, she means the maintenance loan, because students aren't actually paid the fee loan. These loans have different repayment terms than normal loans, so you don't have to pay them at all unless you're earning over a certain threshold, and then it is just a small percentage.
Newspapers
Just a little characterisation of some prominent newspapers.
The Sun: Generally considered tabloid trash. The entire city of Liverpool has been boycotting this paper for decades after it blamed Liverpool fans for the Hillsborough disaster using false information.
The Mirror: Also trashy tabloid. Embroiled in a phone hacking scandal a few years back
The Daily Mail: Thinks it is classier than a tabloid but isn't really. Right-leaning, sensationalist, obsessed with house prices.
The Telegraph: Also right-leaning but more middle class
The Guardian: More left-leaning and its readers are stereotyped as being out of touch posh lefties.
Rupert Murdoch: Media mogul who owns The Sun and lots more. People blame him a lot for the state of our papers.
Supermarkets
Where you shop says a lot about you in the UK.
Tesco: The closest thing to an everyman supermarket. No-one makes any real judgement if they hear you shop at Tesco. Slogan: Every Little Helps.
ASDA: Probably slightly lower class than Tesco, but still a respectable choice. Slogan: That's ASDA price (and then you pat your bum)
Sainsbury's: A bit posher than Tesco but not outlandishly so.
Lidl/Aldi: These are two German supermarket chains that are known for very low prices. People will joke about how shit they are because they're cheap but we all know that they're actually pretty quality. Aldi has an aisle stocked with pure random shite that's on offer that week that can be anything from a hoover to SCUBA gear.
Waitrose/M&S: Posh as fuck. My local Waitrose has a wine bar and a juice bar inside it. Buying the odd item from these is fine, but if you do your weekly shop here you must be loaded. M&S had these weird porny adverts a few years back.
Ocado: Basically Waitrose but they deliver to your door, for when you're rich and lazy.
Morrison's: I've always felt like Morrison's sits outside judgement somehow. They aren't all that common in some parts of the country but people who have them tend to like them.
Other Shops
Primark: The cheapest clothing shop you can imagine. £5 for a dress but every girl you know will be wearing the same one.
New Look: More expensive than Primark. Quality only marginally better. Worn by lots of teen girls but you can occasionally find some decent stuff.
Boots/Superdrug: They sell makeup, medicine, usually have pharmacies inside them. The go to places for cheap make up.
WH Smith/Waterstones: Our main bookshops.
Gregg's: National icon. They sell pastries and their sausage rolls are legendary. Particularly loved by Northerners.
Nando's: Peri-peri chicken that is somehow ludicrously popular here. You will be judged on the spice level you select.
That's just an overview of what immediately came to mind. Feel free to add more in comments or ask if there are specific references. I'd be happy to try to do a roundup of references after each episode airs if I can if that would help people!
Edit: Added a few things that got missed out.

2019.07.06 17:34 bearLover23 [WARNING: EXTREME PAIN INSIDE] Boyfriend [28M] for over 2 years I [27M] planned to propose to next year wants to break up and discard me after my own father beat me bloody and the BF left me in the hospital alone. Yes, he's already seeing someone else...

Question: How can I convince him to get back with me? Am I really the bad guy he says I am? He thinks I am AITA material...
Tl;dr: Title :(
DESCRIPTION AS DETAILED AS I CAN BEAMUSTER...
Disclaimer 1: AND YES MY FATHER IS BETTER NOW. HE IS NOT PHYSICALLY VIOLENT ANYMORE PERIOD. I should make that VERY clear here at the start of the post. What happened was addressed. I do NOT need assistance on this front. I appreciate concern, but IT IS SOLVED. IT IS FINE. I feel the need to state this VERY clearly here to avoid any confusion/issues.
Disclaimer 2: My boyfriend has stated that he wanted to post here for "outside opinions" and if he wants a post here so desperately then fine I'll make it myself. As much as I've told him I would STRONGLY prefer to go to a relationship counselor or someone who is a relationship professional with many many years of experience to help sort this out. I have never posted to this subreddit before but he appears fascinated with it. I was thinking of posting with a throwaway account as this is a deeply disturbing and deeply personal matter that has caused me tremendous grief to put it lightly.
I'll try and give as many details as possible while trying to be succinct. But this is me laying out my truth and life the past few years bare. This is going to be extremely painful.
Heck even yesterday I found out apparently he showed my text messages to his sister (cherry picked the worst of the worst and left out context completely) and they had a huge laugh over my pain and suffering and she was apparently laughing about it calling me "unhinged"... so. Here you go Relationship advice... :(. My first post.
Here's my truth, on a non-throwaway true account. But because it is so critical I didn't want people to assume it was a troll post and write it off. I genuinely want input and highly value it.
1: Basic Information:
-M/M relationship. I am 27, he is 28.
-We met back over 2 years ago.
-The relationship was extremely intense, every single day we would talk at length. We would play video games together, every morning and every night he would send "Goodmorning Snuggle Loves/Goodnight Snuggle Loves" texts. Without failure, in fact if he missed a day because he had no cell service or was in a remote area for work I found it extremely disturbing. It was that consistent.
-I was just finishing my 2nd university degree when we met, we met when I was doing an internship working on FDA regulated medical devices and had to return to complete my degree about 4 months after we met.
-He however had been out of university working for 4-5 years by that point.
-Boyfriend's name isn't Mike. Rapist's name isn't Chris.
2: Pre-Relationship:
-I was a working professional who had no issue tackling problems and was fully happy being alone. In fact I wanted to avoid a relationship completely, too much effort. Too much pain and too distracting for little benefit.
-In came a message on POF from Mike that was extremely long and detailed and had many cute quirkly statements in it such as "building my foundation" as a hook into his current career.
**"But why have POF if you lost interest?" A combination of both being incredibly lazy and being curious if anything would slide in. It was installed on my phone and I just let it run.
-I many days after reading it felt guilty at ignoring such a long message. I had very little inspiration to reply other than the fact it was so detailed.
3: Early Relationship:
-We went on a date going to a very popular venue in our city and it went fine. There was an art show going on. We didn't pick up any art but we went to the antique store because he had an interest in that. In spite of me not being a fan I still went.
-We began talking every day. HE began starting the morning with "goodmorning snuggle loves" and ending it with "goodnight snuggle loves" at the very least. Things ramped up very quick very fast to the point where I was admittedly alarmed and not sure if I was making a mistake. I felt like I was leading him on, my heart told me to not continue this. But I did continue to try.
We quickly, very very quickly, began to message each other essentially nonstop. The texting could go on for literally hours on end. This continued through the relationship up until March of 2019 (this year ~3 months ago).
-We met up many times sometimes bigger things often times smaller like dinner in [MY CITY, it is pretty close to this larger capital city he lives in that I work in / attend university in.] and going to visit the local game stores after having pizza or pasta.
One day months into the relationship we went and parked at a small keyhole street near where I lived and were watching gravity falls early episodes together. (The one with the beaver was this one? I can't remember.) He told ME he loved me. I was very hesitant and then got emotional and started crying. I was questioning for a short while "Can I love him? Can I commit? Am I ready for this?"
LOVE isn't a word I throw around willy nilly. It's always meant a lot to me. After a short while of thinking, I knew I wanted to try this further. I committed to saying I love him back. In spite of a fair bit of hesitation in doing so.
-Later on Mike would ask me more detailed questions about family values, if I wanted children or not, how I saved money, retirement, ambition, career goals and so many more.
But one question stood out above every single last one: "Are you going to take this serious? Are you going to fully commit to this relationship?" Paraphrased slightly as it's been years now. This was after the I love you thing, like weeks (months? I think just like 2 or 3 weeks?) after. I said yes. I thought it over extensively after the I love you exchange.
I explicitly remember him asking this question because my mind was blaring through wondering "Could I love this guy? No? Yes? What does this mean. He isn't really my type at all. Does he even work out?" "Can he even grow a beard? He doesn't even work out but I work out 6 days a week... will he even be okay with me doing that? He doesn't understand tech or does he? He built his owncomputer and seems to be getting godlike internet. Making a server together could be cool?"
-> In terms of the working out thing. I couldn't care less about the physical shape of a partner. It's the LIFESTYLE. I attended the gym 6 days a week and my diet was primarily rice / chicken. Most people would want to DIE living that sort of lifestyle. Pizza and pop? Utterly out of the question. Maybe once in a red eyed scary moon. But not every week that's for certain.
I knew he would never be the muscle king gym rat I wanted, I knew he would eventually go bald (He already lost most of the hair on his crown when we met), I didn't know if he would even ever have a beard.
And. I. Decided. None. Of. That. Mattered.
And I said yes to his question of commitment.
----> I should note VERY clearly here. Early in the relationship I told Mike I was raped a few years prior and had extreme anxiety and PTSD from it and had flashbacks. Mike stated in no uncertain terms that he would be there to support me and protect me. That he even found it cute and that he wanted to be my guardian and protect me and keep me happy and safe through this all.
4: 4 or so months in.
-I expected to be hired part time at the FDA regulated medical device company. However due to contract issues and financial issues I wasn't. This was exceedingly painful and I had many coworkers crying over it, so it wasn't for lack of wanting... But regardless this was a grevious shot to my career and gaining work experience. It hurt immensely.
-I went back to university and had a few courses to complete. Losing my job and returning back to being unpaid and the stressors of university life was immensely painful. One of my courses stated they needed basic maths as a pre-req however the course itself (It was on Computer Vision) went way above that level of math and needed graduate student level mathematics to even understand what was going on. How can you expect someone to comprehend topics introduced in 300 level math courses when you say all you need is 100 levels? :/...
-I was stressed out and went to Mike asking him to help me with the mathematics, as his profession (won't list here) needed him to take EXTENSIVE amounts of math. Mike however opted to not help me with this when I asked, in spite of me even telling him math was a fetish of mine. Nope, and I was left to fester. I eventually had to drop that course and that meant I had to take one final semester to complete this, which added more stress onto me. These are events he would later on revisit as justification on why I am a horrible person... :/
-Doesn't help that when I returned I somehow "lucked out" and had massive group projects in each course. And because I wanted to maintain my GPA to apply to medical school in the future if I chose, simply letting the group work slide was not an option and so I ended up having to do excessive amounts of project work.
-I was also applying out to jobs like an utter madman. Trying desperately to move forward with my career and life. I felt tremendous amounts of pressure because I wasn't gaining the work experience I needed to move forward with my life. I felt like I was stagnating and not getting ahead.
---------> INSERT CATACLYSMIC PROBLEM: Around this time my DAD was laid off from his job and he was seeing a psychiatrist that started putting him on wild medications. She honestly turned him into a lab rat and at one point I genuinely saw him come home with over 6 types of pills to take daily. He began to turn violent. He'd break things, throw things, scream, throw tantrums. These medications however are fully to blame as the man was always docile, kind and understanding. He's the person I first came out to and he even drove me to "gay bear" events in my city. To this day I despise and hate this psychiatrist for ruining my gentle-hearted father. I hate them.
So that in turn made me even more stressed out. The home quickly became a toxic, hate filled place. He, the man I came out to, after years of coming out to him, began to spout homophobic rhetoric at every turn.
-During this time the ONLY refuge I had from the onslaught of insults, comments, etc was Mike's place. I remember remarking at my own excessive amount of sleeping at this time with "I feel safe here."
-At this time Mike would become my "Guardian Angel Dragon". A homage to his interest in dragons combined with me being safe with him.
-He'd hold me and say everything was better. Even when I had a panic attack. No matter how bad things got I had Mike. No matter how many interviews went gally west, I had Mike. No matter how nasty and cruel and vindictive my dad became, I had Mike. No matter how bad a panic attack I had or a flashback to my rape by Chris I had Mike.
In spite of my father tearing into me every time I showed my face.
I could get to sleep at night because Mike was there to text and let me know someone cared. Goodnight and goodmorning snuggle loves became the start and end of my days. And a constant reminder that someone on this floating hunk of rock gave a shit about me. They were also constant since we started dating. A constant testament to faith and resolve.
And no matter how bad things got, I knew I would get my goodmorning/goodnight snuggle loves. That yes, Cole, you should fight another day. No, you shouldn't give up. You have someone counting on you to be strong and get better. Doesn't matter if your dad rips you apart. Mike loves you and wants to see you succeed. So what if you had everything dumped on you? Mike is there to protect you.
And he wanted to be there for you.
5: Mid Relationship.
-And so I proceeded apace. Full well with the knowledge Mike was there for me I fought onwards. But more than that, Mike also gave me fantastic advice on how to look at situations, how to look at problems and tackle them. He became a mentor of sorts in many ways. He became my only true friend, a lover, a mentor and a protector all wrapped into one.
This is when I realized, yes. I made the right decision fully committing to this man. Any doubt I had was fled. This balding, beardless non-gym going silly mess was exactly what I wanted. He was exactly everything to me.
-And that's when I began to question the fuck out of that ring he wore, an iron ring from his career path. Because I knew I wanted to one day propose starting from that point. To my guardian angel dragon.
Little to my surprise that couldn't have been easy either because there was an issue with wearing it on the ring finger aside the other ring... But then I also asked more questions like did he like looking at stars? At this point we asked about space and he explained so many concepts to me, and he also was a fan of KSP. I thought things out to a T at that point already. Yes. I am a hopeless romantic. And I thought Mike was too but I guess not now? But either way he did paint pretty pictures with his words earlier on together. That is for certain.
So talking to him I got the idea we would go to his parents farm and I'd propose to him there. I was thinking at that point in time perhaps 2 years? 3 years? from then I'd do it. But I had the plan in my mind. This ridiculous mess who sent me rainbow unicorns and spider donuts on telegram was the man I wanted to spend the rest of my life with. He was nothing like Chris who I did fully love before. And that was what made him fantastic.
-Shortly after graduating I had a nerve in my tooth die. This was bar none the most extreme pain I ever felt. I could literally not slepe, I couldn't think, I couldn't lay down, I couldn't eat. One day I had to nonstop drink water literally nonstop to halt the pain temporarily the next water was like stabbing myself in the face I was given antibiotics, and painkiller combination of toradol and tylenol. Nothing worked. Nothing helped it. It was neuropathic pain and I knew it.
And bar none the only reason I came out of that and fought through it was because I had Mike at my side.
This is also when I went a bit crazy and ordered like 6 frillies off of EBay...Mike wasn't thrilled. Actually???? That's a lie. On Telegram Mike was laughing and joking about "bagged and tagged" frillies and "FREE FRILLY!" with free willy pictures. So no, actually. Mike was more than silly about it. Because that's how we were. Silly, positive and loving. He was immensely supportive during this time.
And I did promise to give him a frilly... I'm glad I didn't now because he probably would have thrown it out. Which would kill me inside. :/
This is what a frilly is btw: https://www.squishable.com/pc/opensquish_lizard_10763/Squishable_Mini/Mini+Squishable+Frilled+Lizard.
-In fact Mike liked the frillies so much he himself comissioned out a frilly art piece for me. A custom beautiful frilly art piece that he searched and had printed out and framed for me. I didn't take that home because I was scared my dad would break it. So I left it at Mike's place because I couldn't bear the thought of my dad breaking that of mine too. As I said, Mike's place was a safe haven away from the violence. Cruelty and nastiness around me.
--------------> In came meeting his mother.
I was scared. Fucking. Shitless. I had no job, I was going to look like a gold digger compared to him to his mom. I took the relationship seriously and my commitment and promise to be commited to him very seriously. This became a THREAT to me. I applied to jobs more and more, I reached out to recruiters and begged them for stuff, cold called companies. I would NOT be seeing his mother as a jobless slob.
I got a job and signed it on the literal day of my Birthday, literally a short few days from meeting with Mike's mother. During the interview I will be honest. The owner during my first interview was late grabbed my resume and crinkled it with his hand like some garrish churlish ape and questioned if I even did development work. Or "Real development work coding 8 hours a day". He was completely rude. My parents told me to not take the job.
I was promised IN CONTRACT:
-Healthcare benefits immediately
-A revision of salary in 3 months time. (Never happened). I was started out at a lower salary to "test me out".
-Bonuses
-Other things but those three are the most upsetting.
The Job?
It was horrible. The codebase was not architected well. we had customers directly emailing us swearing and cursing at us It was stressful. It was horrific. I was vomiting from raw stress.
The owner also came in and literally swung his fists and banged them on the desks. NO I AM NOT MEANING A LITTLE. Like the man (he's probably 6'6? He's HUGE.) came into the office. No. I am not exaggerating The man scared the absolute heck out of me. But I was getting work experience. And that was the most fundmental thing ever.
--------------> Back to about his mom though...
-I finally met her and she was so sweet and kind and I could tell immediately that she was where he got his compassion and heart from. A great mother no doubt. And also who inspired his love for history, of that I have no doubt. Honestly if it wasn't for raw fear of embarassing myself and / or Mike by looking incompetent or weak or poor ... I'd have been super chill and relaxed Really enjoyed my time there though regardless of the anxiety and stress. It was fantastic.
-And hearing Mike tell me that his mom really liked me meant the world to me. Family is something I value a lot. Even if my dad with his stupid psychiatrist that treats him like a lab rat trying fucked up things makes him get aggressive. I'd defend my father to my last breath. And I could see strong family values. Yet again, reaffirmation I was making the right decision with commiting to Mike. This man I wanted to propose to later. That concept built in me stronger and stronger.
6: Late Last Year (Between about October to December 2018).
-Things got worse at home. The psychiatrist put my dad on different medications all the time. I said lab rat before and I stand by it. They should have their fucking license revoked. Things became WORSE.
-My mom's basal cell carcinoma (she had it originally before I met Mike) came back. She was having to take more and more and more shifts at work trying to just keep the house afloat. Money has always been relatively tight for my family but during this time period after my dad was laid off and not bringing in income it became AGONIZINGLY BAD.
-My mom would work 10+ hour shifts at work and then come home and just crash. She was wiped out. Completely decimated.
-I ended up becoming a caregiver. A new grad fighting in a toxic work environment. A major financial contributor putting thousands of dollars into the house and my parents to try and keep things afloat. And this is ontop of my anxiety and PTSD.
-I moved to fully WFH to ensure I could take care of my mom. Yes, this meant fully immersing myself in a situation that was inherently toxic and tore down my self esteem to pieces.
But I had Mike, and I knew whenever I went to his house that I could go there and know I was safe. He was my guardian angel dragon and my one refuge away from the pain I experienced literally everywhere else in my life.
-----> During this time however Mike began to raise concerns. Specifically he focused in on me not being able to drive.
---> Which was a huge issue Mike had. Even if he diminishes it. I remember Mike literally crying about it once. :/
Which makes me sad as I now have the fucking license and can drive. This also put me in a bad position.
-> Mike wanted me to go out more with him too and show independence.
----> Can't drive.
-> My dad won't drive me.
-> My mom is nonstop working and is violently ill when she is home.
-> Pressures of a new job with a ranting raving absolutely wild job.
So at that point I did stop going to West Ed and other things. My life became a blight upon everything I loved and wanted. I was torn between "Being a good son", "Being a good employee", "Being a good partner" and so many more things. I never had enough time. Ever.
7: December 2018: A month that came by so quickly I barely remember it coming. Time went by so insanely fast...
I remember Mike brought up Christmas ritual where people brought their significant others to the table who then pledged their allegiance to the family and then played a game. I was a bit terrified. Pledge allegiance or however it was?! What?! And then later he'd tell me he intentionally told me this story to rile me up.
Actually remembering this, Mike did invite me to one of the dinners with his family. It was thanksgiving or that Christmas or something. I asked where I'd sleep and he said that his sister and her fiance sleep in her room. And that we'd probably do the same. This scared me. LAter he'd tell me that was the intended effect....
8: January to March this year. 2019.
-Everything in my life changed very rapidly at work. [BIG CENSORED COMPANY NAME] entered my life. Mike knows what [BIG CENSORED COMPANY NAME] means. This company wanted to sign us, and was very serious about it. This was the opportunity of a lifetime. The massive windfall of money and credit would be so huge it would be insane. I was promised a 15-20k bonus. To finally get my salary reevaluated to an expected 70-75k itself.
Look at everything I was going through above. With my dad not working, my mom sick and overworking herself and me wanting to propose to Mike.
-This bonus could have at minimum given my mom the chance she needed to reduce her hours at work. I could support my family. I could support my relationship with Mike.
-Problem is? LOTS AND LOTS AND LOTS AND LOTS HAD TO BE DONE. Security documentation, massive code overhauls, massive testing overhauls, massive overhauls everywhere. They wanted huge features everywhere. And on a team of 3 developers guess what happened? ...As a salaried employee you are expected to do 40 hours/week, this EXPLODED to 80-90 a week very quickly.
-Early into January though I could tell I was already taking a toll on my body. I was getting sick very often and very badly. I would have weeks where I literally would basically have a permanent migraine, where it felt like the sockets behind my eyes were being rung from underneath my eyes themselves.
-This forced me to cancel many outings with Mike. This was something he really strongly disliked. Saying he wanted more from a relationship than what I was giving. That I was sleeping when I was over, that I was always sick, that I was always tired that I couldn't even hold a conversation anymore
...And this was all true.
-I broke myself for [BIG CENSORED COMPANY NAME]. I believed in my heart of hearts I'd get it. That massive bonus (what aren't we taxed like 50% or something on it? Regardless any bonus would be huge....) That salary increase Just to put on my resume we did this for [BIG CENSORED COMPANY NAME]... I truly believed this was what was best for me and him. I gave it my all. And I truly did.

I believed in the very depths of my soul and in my heart I was doing what was best for EVERYONE. So what if I was the sacrificial lamb working myself to the point of tears and burnout? I could change everything for the better. This money could save everyone and change everything.

-Come Feburary though I began to hit major burnout. Everything was taking a toll on me More and more of a toll. By that time the only thing that got me out of bed was the goodmorning snuggle loves texts and then getting goodnight snuggle loves around 10:00pm powered me to keep working till 4:00am some days... yes literally. Mike was the reason I was doing this and I gave it everything I had. Nothing would stop me from being a strong partner for him.
By this time we also had our huge discussion about moving in. He gave me a price point and said I could move in for it. But that wasn't enough for me. I wanted to go on vacations with him, I wanted to go to London with him like he did with his sister. I wanted to visit my family's heritage at Scottish castles. I wanted to go back to Glasgow and see so many things with Mike.
So I sold my health and my time and probably life span and buried myself into [BIG CENSORED COMPANY NAME].
-A primary example of one major issue he had was he invited me to go to Jasper with him during this time period. I was VERY hesitant and eventually gave in to doing it, nothing would stop me from moving ahead on going out with Mike to Jasper. If the managers didn't like it they could freaking rot. Ironically by the time I gained conviction on this... the seats on the bus to Jasper were filled. Meaning I couldn't go to Jasper...
...Oh how painfully I look back at this situation. If I decided even a day, even an hour earlier... could I have gone to Jasper and saved this relationship? It pains me to no end.
9: MARCH 2019--- The month things came crashing down.
-Mike finally was fully fed up with the issues.He listed them out very plainly and very clearly with huge arguments. He had valid issues. Issues that were pin pointed, addressable and that did make him mad.
Even if he doesn't currently believe that they are his "real" issues, they absolutely were. He was crying when he told me about them initially on his couch in his home, I remember it clearly with his ridiculous red couches on the main floor... he was crying about the issues. Why are you always tired? How can we talk? Why are you not coming out doing more with me?
-We talked it out. But he made it full clear he was unhappy at that point. We hit a tipping point. [BIG CENSORED COMPANY NAME] consumed me fully. I didn't give time to the very relationship that fueled me doing that in the first place.
10: MARCH 2019--- The apology call and invitation to the wedding.
-Mike told me to stop texting him that morning and text him on Monday when he came back from [REMOTE LOCATION FOR WORK]. I asked him if I could text that Monday day itself. He said yes. Much in the exact same curt nasty way he has been texting me as of late. This "Walled off emotionless rock" sort of feeling...
-Later that day out of the blue (for me at least) I got a call from Mike. He was wanting to talk.
He said he didn't give me enough credit for what I was going through. That he was sorry for being cruel to me. That he understood what I was going through. I told him I was not okay with the valid issues he did bring up and I was fighting like mad to try and get things right.
-But because of [BIG CENSORED COMPANY NAME]. Good fucking luck getting that done. I tried to take hours to learn to drive. Guess who came banging at my door when I tried to lower my hours to something normal so I could be there for Mike?
My boss. THIS ISN'T DONE THAT ISN'T DONE WHY ARE YOU SO INCOMPETENT FUCKING USELESS
SOOOOOOOO I get scared. Do I focus more on driving? Do I focus on getting into therapy to solve the anxiety issues Mike raised? (And yes they were anxiety related.) Do I go to therapy to get PTSD treated? SOOO MANY QUESTIONS BLEW THROUGH MY MIND.
....
But the boss flat out was threatening my job. the signing with [BIG CENSORED COMPANY NAME].... The 15-20k bonus...the 70-75k salary increase...
The chance to help both Mike and my mother to work less... HOW COULD I MAKE ANY OTHER CHOICE!?
I TOLD MYSELF THIS: I could get through this hard time and get the money and then leave and go on a huge Vacation to Europe with Mike to make up for it.
-When Mike called me back he invited me to his sister's wedding. He even began to tear up and was tearfully telling me how sorry he was and how he wanted me back and give me credit.
This wedding I went out and bought extremely nice royal dalton gift for. I also went to a professional wedding place to get attire. I would NOT look like a slob at his sitster's wedding. PERIOD. Similar to how I felt about his mother. I refuse. I rejected the notion completely that I would be seen as weak, pathetic or poor. I spared no expense and while I couldn't afford it sunk tons of money into the gift, clothing, clogne, shoes etc.
-But during this time, the one where he treated me most similar to current day, Mike had me over to his house He held me in his chest again.
And he was crying and very very upset saying:
"I am so so sorry you went through that"
"I am sorry I wasn't there for you and I am sorry I didn't give you credit"
"I love you so much and you matter to me and I don't want you to feel sad or lonely or worried anymore."
"I don't want to stress you out or make you change" was another thing he said.
...But what he still doesn't get. Is that I wanted to change for our relationship. I wanted to evolve, I wanted to not be shackled by Chris's rape and my PTSd. I wanted to be free of my father who had been turned into a labrat by a psychiatrist who did NOT deserve their medical license. I wanted to be able to save money and help protect my mother.
I do not want to be defined by Chris raping me. By my anxieties. By my fears.
-So after that visit with him guess what I did? "MIKE IS MY FUTURE. I WILL MAKE [BIG CENSORED COMPANY NAME] HAPPEN EVEN IF IT KILLS ME.!!!!" So I logged in and I went back to my psychotic levels of unpaid OT. My guardian angel dragon would see I could do this and no one could stop me.
11: April 2019: Things were back to normal.
-March and April from that point onward went amazingly well.
-Heck in April I went to Mike's place and we had an AMAAAAAAZING time. AMAZINg. He was so happy on Saturday that he finally got me to see his favorite movie and I was hyped about seeing it too And that's another thing he keeps saying. That "Sure we had some good times". NO. The incredible majority of the time was amazing between us. I don't know why he thinks he was miserable most of it but factually looking back he wasn't. He was happy we went to Heritage park together. And the jacuuzi and watching xmen together in it.
I don't know why he's convinced himself it was always miserable, it absolutely wasn't. And no that isn't just from my lens, that was literally seeing him smiling laughing and being extremely silly.
Wiggling in bed and being absolutely ridiculous, bumping me backwards with his arse in the shower and massive makeout sessions every time I came over.
Was there bad? ABSOLUTELY. But that's the points I will address further below. And they are the problems I have solved at this point.
... But yeah back in April we had an amazing time. Flat out amazing.

2019.07.06 17:20 bearLover23 [EXTREME PAIN INSIDE] Boyfriend for over 2 years I planned to propose to next year wants to break up and discard me after my own father beat me bloody and the BF left me in the hospital alone. Yes, he's already seeing someone else... Thoughts/Opinions? Am I really the bad guy?

Please please please read this post and not just the title.
Disclaimer 1: AND YES MY FATHER IS BETTER NOW. HE IS NOT PHYSICALLY VIOLENT ANYMORE PERIOD. I should make that VERY clear here at the start of the post. What happened was addressed. I do NOT need assistance on this front. I appreciate concern, but IT IS SOLVED. IT IS FINE. I feel the need to state this VERY clearly here to avoid any confusion/issues.
Disclaimer 2: My boyfriend has stated that he wanted to post here for "outside opinions" and if he wants a post here so desperately then fine I'll make it myself. As much as I've told him I would STRONGLY prefer to go to a relationship counselor or someone who is a relationship professional with many many years of experience to help sort this out. I have never posted to this subreddit before but he appears fascinated with it. I was thinking of posting with a throwaway account as this is a deeply disturbing and deeply personal matter that has caused me tremendous grief to put it lightly.
I'll try and give as many details as possible while trying to be succinct. But this is me laying out my truth and life the past few years bare. This is going to be extremely painful.
Heck even yesterday I found out apparently he showed my text messages to his sister (cherry picked the worst of the worst and left out context completely) and they had a huge laugh over my pain and suffering and she was apparently laughing about it calling me "unhinged"... so. Here you go AGB. My first post.
Here's my truth, on a non-throwaway true account. But because it is so critical I didn't want people to assume it was a troll post and write it off. I genuinely want input and highly value it.
1: Basic Information:
-M/M relationship. I am 27, he is 28.
-We met back over 2 years ago.
-The relationship was extremely intense, every single day we would talk at length. We would play video games together, every morning and every night he would send "Goodmorning Snuggle Loves/Goodnight Snuggle Loves" texts. Without failure, in fact if he missed a day because he had no cell service or was in a remote area for work I found it extremely disturbing. It was that consistent.
-I was just finishing my 2nd university degree when we met, we met when I was doing an internship working on FDA regulated medical devices and had to return to complete my degree about 4 months after we met.
-He however had been out of university working for 4-5 years by that point.
-Boyfriend's name isn't Mike. Rapist's name isn't Chris.
2: Pre-Relationship:
-I was a working professional who had no issue tackling problems and was fully happy being alone. In fact I wanted to avoid a relationship completely, too much effort. Too much pain and too distracting for little benefit.
-In came a message on POF from Mike that was extremely long and detailed and had many cute quirkly statements in it such as "building my foundation" as a hook into his current career.
**"But why have POF if you lost interest?" A combination of both being incredibly lazy and being curious if anything would slide in. It was installed on my phone and I just let it run.
-I many days after reading it felt guilty at ignoring such a long message. I had very little inspiration to reply other than the fact it was so detailed.
3: Early Relationship:
-We went on a date going to a very popular venue in our city and it went fine. There was an art show going on. We didn't pick up any art but we went to the antique store because he had an interest in that. In spite of me not being a fan I still went.
-We began talking every day. HE began starting the morning with "goodmorning snuggle loves" and ending it with "goodnight snuggle loves" at the very least. Things ramped up very quick very fast to the point where I was admittedly alarmed and not sure if I was making a mistake. I felt like I was leading him on, my heart told me to not continue this. But I did continue to try.
We quickly, very very quickly, began to message each other essentially nonstop. The texting could go on for literally hours on end. This continued through the relationship up until March of 2019 (this year ~3 months ago).
-We met up many times sometimes bigger things often times smaller like dinner in [MY CITY, it is pretty close to this larger capital city he lives in that I work in / attend university in.] and going to visit the local game stores after having pizza or pasta.
One day months into the relationship we went and parked at a small keyhole street near where I lived and were watching gravity falls early episodes together. (The one with the beaver was this one? I can't remember.) He told ME he loved me. I was very hesitant and then got emotional and started crying. I was questioning for a short while "Can I love him? Can I commit? Am I ready for this?"
LOVE isn't a word I throw around willy nilly. It's always meant a lot to me. After a short while of thinking, I knew I wanted to try this further. I committed to saying I love him back. In spite of a fair bit of hesitation in doing so.
-Later on Mike would ask me more detailed questions about family values, if I wanted children or not, how I saved money, retirement, ambition, career goals and so many more.
But one question stood out above every single last one: "Are you going to take this serious? Are you going to fully commit to this relationship?" Paraphrased slightly as it's been years now. This was after the I love you thing, like weeks (months? I think just like 2 or 3 weeks?) after. I said yes. I thought it over extensively after the I love you exchange.
I explicitly remember him asking this question because my mind was blaring through wondering "Could I love this guy? No? Yes? What does this mean. He isn't really my type at all. Does he even work out?" "Can he even grow a beard? He doesn't even work out but I work out 6 days a week... will he even be okay with me doing that? He doesn't understand tech or does he? He built his owncomputer and seems to be getting godlike internet. Making a server together could be cool?"
-> In terms of the working out thing. I couldn't care less about the physical shape of a partner. It's the LIFESTYLE. I attended the gym 6 days a week and my diet was primarily rice / chicken. Most people would want to DIE living that sort of lifestyle. Pizza and pop? Utterly out of the question. Maybe once in a red eyed scary moon. But not every week that's for certain.
I knew he would never be the muscle king gym rat I wanted, I knew he would eventually go bald (He already lost most of the hair on his crown when we met), I didn't know if he would even ever have a beard.
And. I. Decided. None. Of. That. Mattered.
And I said yes to his question of commitment.
----> I should note VERY clearly here. Early in the relationship I told Mike I was raped a few years prior and had extreme anxiety and PTSD from it and had flashbacks. Mike stated in no uncertain terms that he would be there to support me and protect me. That he even found it cute and that he wanted to be my guardian and protect me and keep me happy and safe through this all.
4: 4 or so months in.
-I expected to be hired part time at the FDA regulated medical device company. However due to contract issues and financial issues I wasn't. This was exceedingly painful and I had many coworkers crying over it, so it wasn't for lack of wanting... But regardless this was a grevious shot to my career and gaining work experience. It hurt immensely.
-I went back to university and had a few courses to complete. Losing my job and returning back to being unpaid and the stressors of university life was immensely painful. One of my courses stated they needed basic maths as a pre-req however the course itself (It was on Computer Vision) went way above that level of math and needed graduate student level mathematics to even understand what was going on. How can you expect someone to comprehend topics introduced in 300 level math courses when you say all you need is 100 levels? :/...
-I was stressed out and went to Mike asking him to help me with the mathematics, as his profession (won't list here) needed him to take EXTENSIVE amounts of math. Mike however opted to not help me with this when I asked, in spite of me even telling him math was a fetish of mine. Nope, and I was left to fester. I eventually had to drop that course and that meant I had to take one final semester to complete this, which added more stress onto me. These are events he would later on revisit as justification on why I am a horrible person... :/
-Doesn't help that when I returned I somehow "lucked out" and had massive group projects in each course. And because I wanted to maintain my GPA to apply to medical school in the future if I chose, simply letting the group work slide was not an option and so I ended up having to do excessive amounts of project work.
-I was also applying out to jobs like an utter madman. Trying desperately to move forward with my career and life. I felt tremendous amounts of pressure because I wasn't gaining the work experience I needed to move forward with my life. I felt like I was stagnating and not getting ahead.
---------> INSERT CATACLYSMIC PROBLEM: Around this time my DAD was laid off from his job and he was seeing a psychiatrist that started putting him on wild medications. She honestly turned him into a lab rat and at one point I genuinely saw him come home with over 6 types of pills to take daily. He began to turn violent. He'd break things, throw things, scream, throw tantrums. These medications however are fully to blame as the man was always docile, kind and understanding. He's the person I first came out to and he even drove me to "gay bear" events in my city. To this day I despise and hate this psychiatrist for ruining my gentle-hearted father. I hate them.
So that in turn made me even more stressed out. The home quickly became a toxic, hate filled place. He, the man I came out to, after years of coming out to him, began to spout homophobic rhetoric at every turn.
-During this time the ONLY refuge I had from the onslaught of insults, comments, etc was Mike's place. I remember remarking at my own excessive amount of sleeping at this time with "I feel safe here."
-At this time Mike would become my "Guardian Angel Dragon". A homage to his interest in dragons combined with me being safe with him.
-He'd hold me and say everything was better. Even when I had a panic attack. No matter how bad things got I had Mike. No matter how many interviews went gally west, I had Mike. No matter how nasty and cruel and vindictive my dad became, I had Mike. No matter how bad a panic attack I had or a flashback to my rape by Chris I had Mike.
In spite of my father tearing into me every time I showed my face.
I could get to sleep at night because Mike was there to text and let me know someone cared. Goodnight and goodmorning snuggle loves became the start and end of my days. And a constant reminder that someone on this floating hunk of rock gave a shit about me. They were also constant since we started dating. A constant testament to faith and resolve.
And no matter how bad things got, I knew I would get my goodmorning/goodnight snuggle loves. That yes, Cole, you should fight another day. No, you shouldn't give up. You have someone counting on you to be strong and get better. Doesn't matter if your dad rips you apart. Mike loves you and wants to see you succeed. So what if you had everything dumped on you? Mike is there to protect you.
And he wanted to be there for you.
5: Mid Relationship.
-And so I proceeded apace. Full well with the knowledge Mike was there for me I fought onwards. But more than that, Mike also gave me fantastic advice on how to look at situations, how to look at problems and tackle them. He became a mentor of sorts in many ways. He became my only true friend, a lover, a mentor and a protector all wrapped into one.
This is when I realized, yes. I made the right decision fully committing to this man. Any doubt I had was fled. This balding, beardless non-gym going silly mess was exactly what I wanted. He was exactly everything to me.
-And that's when I began to question the fuck out of that ring he wore, an iron ring from his career path. Because I knew I wanted to one day propose starting from that point. To my guardian angel dragon.
Little to my surprise that couldn't have been easy either because there was an issue with wearing it on the ring finger aside the other ring... But then I also asked more questions like did he like looking at stars? At this point we asked about space and he explained so many concepts to me, and he also was a fan of KSP. I thought things out to a T at that point already. Yes. I am a hopeless romantic. And I thought Mike was too but I guess not now? But either way he did paint pretty pictures with his words earlier on together. That is for certain.
So talking to him I got the idea we would go to his parents farm and I'd propose to him there. I was thinking at that point in time perhaps 2 years? 3 years? from then I'd do it. But I had the plan in my mind. This ridiculous mess who sent me rainbow unicorns and spider donuts on telegram was the man I wanted to spend the rest of my life with. He was nothing like Chris who I did fully love before. And that was what made him fantastic.
-Shortly after graduating I had a nerve in my tooth die. This was bar none the most extreme pain I ever felt. I could literally not slepe, I couldn't think, I couldn't lay down, I couldn't eat. One day I had to nonstop drink water literally nonstop to halt the pain temporarily the next water was like stabbing myself in the face I was given antibiotics, and painkiller combination of toradol and tylenol. Nothing worked. Nothing helped it. It was neuropathic pain and I knew it.
And bar none the only reason I came out of that and fought through it was because I had Mike at my side.
This is also when I went a bit crazy and ordered like 6 frillies off of EBay...Mike wasn't thrilled. Actually???? That's a lie. On Telegram Mike was laughing and joking about "bagged and tagged" frillies and "FREE FRILLY!" with free willy pictures. So no, actually. Mike was more than silly about it. Because that's how we were. Silly, positive and loving. He was immensely supportive during this time.
And I did promise to give him a frilly... I'm glad I didn't now because he probably would have thrown it out. Which would kill me inside. :/
This is what a frilly is btw: https://www.squishable.com/pc/opensquish_lizard_10763/Squishable_Mini/Mini+Squishable+Frilled+Lizard.
-In fact Mike liked the frillies so much he himself comissioned out a frilly art piece for me. A custom beautiful frilly art piece that he searched and had printed out and framed for me. I didn't take that home because I was scared my dad would break it. So I left it at Mike's place because I couldn't bear the thought of my dad breaking that of mine too. As I said, Mike's place was a safe haven away from the violence. Cruelty and nastiness around me.
--------------> In came meeting his mother.
I was scared. Fucking. Shitless. I had no job, I was going to look like a gold digger compared to him to his mom. I took the relationship seriously and my commitment and promise to be commited to him very seriously. This became a THREAT to me. I applied to jobs more and more, I reached out to recruiters and begged them for stuff, cold called companies. I would NOT be seeing his mother as a jobless slob.
I got a job and signed it on the literal day of my Birthday, literally a short few days from meeting with Mike's mother. During the interview I will be honest. The owner during my first interview was late grabbed my resume and crinkled it with his hand like some garrish churlish ape and questioned if I even did development work. Or "Real development work coding 8 hours a day". He was completely rude. My parents told me to not take the job.
I was promised IN CONTRACT:
-Healthcare benefits immediately
-A revision of salary in 3 months time. (Never happened). I was started out at a lower salary to "test me out".
-Bonuses
-Other things but those three are the most upsetting.
The Job?
It was horrible. The codebase was not architected well. we had customers directly emailing us swearing and cursing at us It was stressful. It was horrific. I was vomiting from raw stress.
The owner also came in and literally swung his fists and banged them on the desks. NO I AM NOT MEANING A LITTLE. Like the man (he's probably 6'6? He's HUGE.) came into the office. No. I am not exaggerating The man scared the absolute heck out of me. But I was getting work experience. And that was the most fundmental thing ever.
--------------> Back to about his mom though...
-I finally met her and she was so sweet and kind and I could tell immediately that she was where he got his compassion and heart from. A great mother no doubt. And also who inspired his love for history, of that I have no doubt. Honestly if it wasn't for raw fear of embarassing myself and / or Mike by looking incompetent or weak or poor ... I'd have been super chill and relaxed Really enjoyed my time there though regardless of the anxiety and stress. It was fantastic.
-And hearing Mike tell me that his mom really liked me meant the world to me. Family is something I value a lot. Even if my dad with his stupid psychiatrist that treats him like a lab rat trying fucked up things makes him get aggressive. I'd defend my father to my last breath. And I could see strong family values. Yet again, reaffirmation I was making the right decision with commiting to Mike. This man I wanted to propose to later. That concept built in me stronger and stronger.
6: Late Last Year (Between about October to December 2018).
-Things got worse at home. The psychiatrist put my dad on different medications all the time. I said lab rat before and I stand by it. They should have their fucking license revoked. Things became WORSE.
-My mom's basal cell carcinoma (she had it originally before I met Mike) came back. She was having to take more and more and more shifts at work trying to just keep the house afloat. Money has always been relatively tight for my family but during this time period after my dad was laid off and not bringing in income it became AGONIZINGLY BAD.
-My mom would work 10+ hour shifts at work and then come home and just crash. She was wiped out. Completely decimated.
-I ended up becoming a caregiver. A new grad fighting in a toxic work environment. A major financial contributor putting thousands of dollars into the house and my parents to try and keep things afloat. And this is ontop of my anxiety and PTSD.
-I moved to fully WFH to ensure I could take care of my mom. Yes, this meant fully immersing myself in a situation that was inherently toxic and tore down my self esteem to pieces.
But I had Mike, and I knew whenever I went to his house that I could go there and know I was safe. He was my guardian angel dragon and my one refuge away from the pain I experienced literally everywhere else in my life.
-----> During this time however Mike began to raise concerns. Specifically he focused in on me not being able to drive.
---> Which was a huge issue Mike had. Even if he diminishes it. I remember Mike literally crying about it once. :/
Which makes me sad as I now have the fucking license and can drive. This also put me in a bad position.
-> Mike wanted me to go out more with him too and show independence.
----> Can't drive.
-> My dad won't drive me.
-> My mom is nonstop working and is violently ill when she is home.
-> Pressures of a new job with a ranting raving absolutely wild job.
So at that point I did stop going to West Ed and other things. My life became a blight upon everything I loved and wanted. I was torn between "Being a good son", "Being a good employee", "Being a good partner" and so many more things. I never had enough time. Ever.
7: December 2018: A month that came by so quickly I barely remember it coming. Time went by so insanely fast...
I remember Mike brought up Christmas ritual where people brought their significant others to the table who then pledged their allegiance to the family and then played a game. I was a bit terrified. Pledge allegiance or however it was?! What?! And then later he'd tell me he intentionally told me this story to rile me up.
Actually remembering this, Mike did invite me to one of the dinners with his family. It was thanksgiving or that Christmas or something. I asked where I'd sleep and he said that his sister and her fiance sleep in her room. And that we'd probably do the same. This scared me. LAter he'd tell me that was the intended effect....
8: January to March this year. 2019.
-Everything in my life changed very rapidly at work. [BIG CENSORED COMPANY NAME] entered my life. Mike knows what [BIG CENSORED COMPANY NAME] means. This company wanted to sign us, and was very serious about it. This was the opportunity of a lifetime. The massive windfall of money and credit would be so huge it would be insane. I was promised a 15-20k bonus. To finally get my salary reevaluated to an expected 70-75k itself.
Look at everything I was going through above. With my dad not working, my mom sick and overworking herself and me wanting to propose to Mike.
-This bonus could have at minimum given my mom the chance she needed to reduce her hours at work. I could support my family. I could support my relationship with Mike.
-Problem is? LOTS AND LOTS AND LOTS AND LOTS HAD TO BE DONE. Security documentation, massive code overhauls, massive testing overhauls, massive overhauls everywhere. They wanted huge features everywhere. And on a team of 3 developers guess what happened? ...As a salaried employee you are expected to do 40 hours/week, this EXPLODED to 80-90 a week very quickly.
-Early into January though I could tell I was already taking a toll on my body. I was getting sick very often and very badly. I would have weeks where I literally would basically have a permanent migraine, where it felt like the sockets behind my eyes were being rung from underneath my eyes themselves.
-This forced me to cancel many outings with Mike. This was something he really strongly disliked. Saying he wanted more from a relationship than what I was giving. That I was sleeping when I was over, that I was always sick, that I was always tired that I couldn't even hold a conversation anymore
...And this was all true.
-I broke myself for [BIG CENSORED COMPANY NAME]. I believed in my heart of hearts I'd get it. That massive bonus (what aren't we taxed like 50% or something on it? Regardless any bonus would be huge....) That salary increase Just to put on my resume we did this for [BIG CENSORED COMPANY NAME]... I truly believed this was what was best for me and him. I gave it my all. And I truly did.

I believed in the very depths of my soul and in my heart I was doing what was best for EVERYONE. So what if I was the sacrificial lamb working myself to the point of tears and burnout? I could change everything for the better. This money could save everyone and change everything.

-Come Feburary though I began to hit major burnout. Everything was taking a toll on me More and more of a toll. By that time the only thing that got me out of bed was the goodmorning snuggle loves texts and then getting goodnight snuggle loves around 10:00pm powered me to keep working till 4:00am some days... yes literally. Mike was the reason I was doing this and I gave it everything I had. Nothing would stop me from being a strong partner for him.
By this time we also had our huge discussion about moving in. He gave me a price point and said I could move in for it. But that wasn't enough for me. I wanted to go on vacations with him, I wanted to go to London with him like he did with his sister. I wanted to visit my family's heritage at Scottish castles. I wanted to go back to Glasgow and see so many things with Mike.
So I sold my health and my time and probably life span and buried myself into [BIG CENSORED COMPANY NAME].
-A primary example of one major issue he had was he invited me to go to Jasper with him during this time period. I was VERY hesitant and eventually gave in to doing it, nothing would stop me from moving ahead on going out with Mike to Jasper. If the managers didn't like it they could freaking rot. Ironically by the time I gained conviction on this... the seats on the bus to Jasper were filled. Meaning I couldn't go to Jasper...
...Oh how painfully I look back at this situation. If I decided even a day, even an hour earlier... could I have gone to Jasper and saved this relationship? It pains me to no end.
9: MARCH 2019--- The month things came crashing down.
-Mike finally was fully fed up with the issues.He listed them out very plainly and very clearly with huge arguments. He had valid issues. Issues that were pin pointed, addressable and that did make him mad.
Even if he doesn't currently believe that they are his "real" issues, they absolutely were. He was crying when he told me about them initially on his couch in his home, I remember it clearly with his ridiculous red couches on the main floor... he was crying about the issues. Why are you always tired? How can we talk? Why are you not coming out doing more with me?
-We talked it out. But he made it full clear he was unhappy at that point. We hit a tipping point. [BIG CENSORED COMPANY NAME] consumed me fully. I didn't give time to the very relationship that fueled me doing that in the first place.
10: MARCH 2019--- The apology call and invitation to the wedding.
-Mike told me to stop texting him that morning and text him on Monday when he came back from [REMOTE LOCATION FOR WORK]. I asked him if I could text that Monday day itself. He said yes. Much in the exact same curt nasty way he has been texting me as of late. This "Walled off emotionless rock" sort of feeling...
-Later that day out of the blue (for me at least) I got a call from Mike. He was wanting to talk.
He said he didn't give me enough credit for what I was going through. That he was sorry for being cruel to me. That he understood what I was going through. I told him I was not okay with the valid issues he did bring up and I was fighting like mad to try and get things right.
-But because of [BIG CENSORED COMPANY NAME]. Good fucking luck getting that done. I tried to take hours to learn to drive. Guess who came banging at my door when I tried to lower my hours to something normal so I could be there for Mike?
My boss. THIS ISN'T DONE THAT ISN'T DONE WHY ARE YOU SO INCOMPETENT FUCKING USELESS
SOOOOOOOO I get scared. Do I focus more on driving? Do I focus on getting into therapy to solve the anxiety issues Mike raised? (And yes they were anxiety related.) Do I go to therapy to get PTSD treated? SOOO MANY QUESTIONS BLEW THROUGH MY MIND.
....
But the boss flat out was threatening my job. the signing with [BIG CENSORED COMPANY NAME].... The 15-20k bonus...the 70-75k salary increase...
The chance to help both Mike and my mother to work less... HOW COULD I MAKE ANY OTHER CHOICE!?
I TOLD MYSELF THIS: I could get through this hard time and get the money and then leave and go on a huge Vacation to Europe with Mike to make up for it.
-When Mike called me back he invited me to his sister's wedding. He even began to tear up and was tearfully telling me how sorry he was and how he wanted me back and give me credit.
This wedding I went out and bought extremely nice royal dalton gift for. I also went to a professional wedding place to get attire. I would NOT look like a slob at his sitster's wedding. PERIOD. Similar to how I felt about his mother. I refuse. I rejected the notion completely that I would be seen as weak, pathetic or poor. I spared no expense and while I couldn't afford it sunk tons of money into the gift, clothing, clogne, shoes etc.
-But during this time, the one where he treated me most similar to current day, Mike had me over to his house He held me in his chest again.
And he was crying and very very upset saying:
"I am so so sorry you went through that"
"I am sorry I wasn't there for you and I am sorry I didn't give you credit"
"I love you so much and you matter to me and I don't want you to feel sad or lonely or worried anymore."
"I don't want to stress you out or make you change" was another thing he said.
...But what he still doesn't get. Is that I wanted to change for our relationship. I wanted to evolve, I wanted to not be shackled by Chris's rape and my PTSd. I wanted to be free of my father who had been turned into a labrat by a psychiatrist who did NOT deserve their medical license. I wanted to be able to save money and help protect my mother.
I do not want to be defined by Chris raping me. By my anxieties. By my fears.
-So after that visit with him guess what I did? "MIKE IS MY FUTURE. I WILL MAKE [BIG CENSORED COMPANY NAME] HAPPEN EVEN IF IT KILLS ME.!!!!" So I logged in and I went back to my psychotic levels of unpaid OT. My guardian angel dragon would see I could do this and no one could stop me.
11: April 2019: Things were back to normal.
-March and April from that point onward went amazingly well.
-Heck in April I went to Mike's place and we had an AMAAAAAAZING time. AMAZINg. He was so happy on Saturday that he finally got me to see his favorite movie and I was hyped about seeing it too And that's another thing he keeps saying. That "Sure we had some good times". NO. The incredible majority of the time was amazing between us. I don't know why he thinks he was miserable most of it but factually looking back he wasn't. He was happy we went to Heritage park together. And the jacuuzi and watching xmen together in it.
I don't know why he's convinced himself it was always miserable, it absolutely wasn't. And no that isn't just from my lens, that was literally seeing him smiling laughing and being extremely silly.
Wiggling in bed and being absolutely ridiculous, bumping me backwards with his arse in the shower and massive makeout sessions every time I came over.
Was there bad? ABSOLUTELY. But that's the points I will address further below. And they are the problems I have solved at this point.
... But yeah back in April we had an amazing time. Flat out amazing.

2019.05.07 00:52 throwaway23423455588 20 [M4F] Anywhere - Looking for love

Hello! I'm a 20 year old university student from Scotland (yes I have the accent, yes wear a kilt sometimes, yes I like haggis, no I'm not ginger or from Glasgow). Physically I'm 5'11, I have a beard that I may or may not be getting rid of soon, light brown hair, blue eyes and I'm somewhat stocky.
I'm slightly introverted and fairly quiet but not necessarily shy, I'm at my happiest one on one or in small groups of good friends. I'm also fiercely loyal to those who are important to me.
I'm very interested in history and current events though I don't mind if you do or don't. It's not needed that we share the same interests but more that we can get along and be good together. I also love the outdoors and hiking which I really need to find time to do more of as I haven't really since starting university two years ago. I've traveled pretty extensively mostly in Europe but also North America and East Asia and would love to find someone who would travel with me one day.
I also love writing, outside of messing around on the internet it's probably my biggest method of relaxation. My google drive is full of half finished stories and film scripts, have no real intention of ever trying to pursue it as a career but I still love doing it.
I would like to find someone around my age (say maybe two years either way). Distance doesn't really matter as I've done long distance before and don't mind it but if we were ever to get into a relationship it would be important to have plans to see each other in person fairly often (I have a good job so can travel to pretty much anywhere if I have a couple months to save up). What's really important is finding someone that there's a real mutual spark with. Also big plus if you like my (rather Scottish) humour.
Should also say that I'm not big into drugs or alcohol, one of the big reasons why I'm reaching out on reddit is that it's somewhat difficult to find a lassie here who shares that and frankly I'm not into building a relationship based mostly in chemical intoxication, occasional drinking in moderation is fine but I'm just tired of every date being getting blootered in a pub.
I'd also like to take any interactions that come from this slowly, I'm not looking to jump straight into a relationship but to get to know each other first and see what can come from it.
