The blurb for this documentary is terrible:

PLOT: On January 20th, 2020 the US and South Korea both discovered their first cases of COVID-19. However, 9 months later, the novel Coronavirus has claimed the lives of almost 200,000 Americans and caused staggering economic damage, while in South Korea, there were no significant lockdowns and, in an urbanized population of 51 million, only 344 lives have been lost. Where did we go wrong? Academy Award-winning filmmaker Alex Gibney, directing with Ophelia Harutyunyan and Suzanne Hillinger, interrogates this question and its devastating implications in Totally Under Control. With damning testimony from public health officials and hard investigative reporting, Gibney exposes a system-wide collapse caused by a profound dereliction of Presidential leadership. #TotallyUnderControl

Excuse me? There was no lockdown in South Korea?. South Korea has had two lockdowns, TWO. Also, the total number of deaths in South Korea is 434 as of today. Whoever wrote this blurb is an idiot.

Because men are far more likely to have actually seen t-porn online than women. Men know what's up, or rather, what's really down there.

Could we please as a community stitch together a list of hosters that don't censor or nudge users like most of the "big" platforms do right now ? by ElifromtheBook in AskSaidIt

I was deleted from Quora years ago and I think they blocked my IP from starting a new one.

Wasn't Quora part of Google? I can't help you with that because I don't even have a Google account. I had one about a decade ago and deleted it. Now Google demands that I give them my smartphone number in order to create a new account (just to log into Youtube/Gmail/The other Google services), which I am definitely not going to do because I don't want to be digitally dog-collared 24/7 to Google tracking my physical movements. I can plainly tell Google are logging every click (regardless of me making an account or not) from the kinds of recommends I am getting in the Youtube sidebar. I would like to keep my physical whereabouts to myself. I always hated smartphones anyways, I try to avoid using them as much as possible.

Here's yet another example of SJW TRAs censoring a scientist this year by ISaidWhatISaid in censorship

[–]ISaidWhatISaid[S] 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

But his response makes this so much worse.. literally agreeing that his paper had weaknesses, the scope of his study was "disrespectful", thinking that they simply misunderstood his points.. ludicrous. Why even give lip service to their false narratives?

He has to grovel and kiss the trannie ring, otherwise he won't have a career in science anymore. You can't expect the average scientist to come out and sacrifice their career. Several scientists have already done that, and for what? They just lost their jobs and were replaced by TRA academics. It had no impact on academia at large at all.

It's synthy (ie, synthwave) and not goth, but a lot of synthy has a post-rock rocksteady beat, so it kinda sounds goth but futuristic.

Do not trust Minds.com - they hijacked my account and refuse to let me re-register

Frustrated at the censorship on Wordpress, I decided to log into Minds.com and to start using my account there more actively. I had already registered with Minds.com months ago but had never wanted to use my account there until recently.

I tried logging into my Minds.com using my alias and password but to my surprise I got this error:

https://www.minds.com/help/question/d729f7c6-dde6-4cae-b72b-5c58ffcfe349 (BTW, this page doe snot appear to load if you try to visit it in stealthmode)

Needless to say I immediately requested a password reset confirmation e-mail, and according to Minds.com one should've been sent to my e-mail address...

... only, this reset e-mail was never actually sent to me. I waited literally for hours and nothing arrived. I tried many times over and no reset e-mail was sent to me.

I then tried to re-register at Minds.com under a new alias, but lo behold, Minds.com now refused to allow me to re-register under a new account. I literally couldn't even click on the button to register the new account.

Again, I had never used minds.com for anything at all prior to this moment. I never posted anything whatsoever and I never read any posts there whatsoever. I have no idea why they have decided to hijack my account in such a deceptive manner. They won't even just let me access my account just to delete it in order to protest. Is this a way for them to boost their user base while denying users the actual service promised?

Moral of the story: do not trust this Minds.com service that purports to be an alternative to other platforms. They will hijack your account for no reason and despite you not using it, lie about sending you a password reset when they refuse to grant you access, and refuse to allow you to re-register to complain or to just ask about what the hell is happening. I looked at their Help Desk page and there was no e-mail address there you can write to with questions. How typical.

Also, Tim Pool if you're reading this, I only registered with Minds.com because you said they were trustworthy.

Perhaps other I-words might do instead of "come" and "off/stop"

You can try "here" instead of "come", and "sit" instead of "off/stop".

I own 5 cats myself and in terms of cat names it's important that the name has an emphasized I-sound because cats respond to those sounds best, especially when they are young and they are first learning different commands like "come" and "off/stop". For example, "Thing 1 and Thing 2" from your list are not good names for cats because they are too much alike and your cats will not be able to tell whether you're referring to the one or the other when you're calling them. Good names with I-sounds from your list are the following:

Shere Khan & Bagheera

Cyrano & Pinocchio

Kubrick Villeneuve & Gilliam Nolan

Pygmalion & Galileo

Gingivitis & Halitosis

No, it was not about a John Cage piece (speaking of which, I was gonna post some Cage before seeing your comment).

It was actually this piece:

Hans Werner Henze: Violin Concerto No.2 (1971)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZiGN_Z8BUeo

A fine example of what happens when a classical music composer kinda loses the plot, develops ADD and ventures off into the woods of lala land. To be honest, I personally don't find this all that shitty (I've certainly heard worse), it actually has some very interesting and even funny parts in between the chaos, going back and forth between depth and frivolity.

Behemoth - A Forest feat. Niklas Kvarforth (2020) by ISaidWhatISaid in Gothic

[–]ISaidWhatISaid[S] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

When I was talking about closet goths in heavy metal, this is what I was referring to. A death metal frontsinger who's a Morrissey fan? Definitely a closet goth right there.

That said, I don't really like this cover of the single by The Cure but I do respect the fact that Behemoth (a band I otherwise do like) did something completely different from the original. I just think that when you cover gothic songs you should retain the rocksteady post-rock beat rather than doing something completely different rhythmically. The brooding atmosphere of many gothic music is very much based on the fact that the beat is rocksteady, it's like you're walking or running towards the inevitable.

[–]ISaidWhatISaid 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I wasn't alive in the 1970s so I will never know what it was truly like, but to me this movie comes across like it's an exaggerated almost caricatural depiction of the time. But that's how I feel about movies from the 1980s and 1990s that are set in those decades too, because I actually remember what it was like to grow up then, and it was nothing like it was depicted in movies from those decades. Such depictions are always distorted in one way or another.

DRAMA ALERT - Fresh ContraPoints drama: white trannie wearing anime catgirl cosplay costume = racist appropriation of Japanese subculture by ISaidWhatISaid in ContraPoints

Love watching popular YouTuber Natalie Wynn manufacture outrage mobs against trans people of colour for daring to criticise her on their own accounts behind a block & then claiming that she is in fact the victim here as her fans all pile on to one person.

https://twitter.com/TR4SHPUNK/status/1306808906409103360

Don't be surprised that ContraPoints bypasses people's blocks to see what they are posting about him in private. He's been doing that since 2017. He openly bragged about how he was infiltrating trannies' and leftists' private Discord servers to see what they're posting about him there. ContraPoints stan are worshipping an obsessed controlfreak with a moral police dogpile snitch army. #GetOutOfTheCult

Getting your ass banned on /r/ContraPoints is very easy to achieve since almost anything will get those SJW snowflakes triggered, but I guess it's become a sport to almost get yourself banned on /r/ContraPoints and the stans are trying to see how far they can take it while still avoiding a ban.
