ALBUM REVIEW: Wreche - All My Dreams Came True - Handmade Records
ALBUM REVIEW: Wreche – All My Dreams Came True – Handmade Records
The concept of metal without electric guitars might feel like an oxymoron. After all, guitar riffs of one type or another have been the key bedrock of the genre ever since Black Sabbath. But Wreche is different. John Steven Morgan, the multi-instrumentalist and vocalist behind the band, makes a kind of experimental black metal using acoustic piano as the lead instrument. All My Dreams Came True…

I’m not into the Owl House but I saw the new intro and I’m very into this little Gravity Falls nod in the intro. So I guess they’re trying to subtly imply with that it’s playing in the same universe? That’s pretty neat.

Three things I would change about the MCU:
1. The Avengers finding out that Coulson is still alive
2. Mysterio actually being from another reality. The moment he was revealed to be a former Stark employee I knew that something was wrong with Fury
3. Employ (better) translators to check scripts and sets for grammar mistakes. As a native speaker of German I love when my native language is included in Hollywood productions (or any other language than English). Sometimes it is pretty good. For example, when Lemar is speaking German in Falcon and the Winter Soldier the grammar is perfect (his pronounciation as well). Other times it is not that good. Again in FATWS (maybe even the same episode) you can see a sign saying "Erhalten Autoprobleme? Ruf Hank an!". In English it would say "Got car problems? Call Hank!". Problem is the translation of "got". While "erhalten" is one possible translation it is not the right one. It would be right to say "Du hast Autoprobleme?" ("You've got car problems?) or simply "Autoprobleme?". I know it probably seems like a very small problem but to me it is seriously annoying. I mean with all the money Marvel has they should be able to afford the best translators
All valid points, even though I personally liked this version of Beck and I hope his death was only a scam. It could be him making Peter believe there are people coming from other realities in NWH...

Unlike the usual, "this weird neat prompt/setting popped in my head" this time I just want to jot down a few observations. First and foremost how much humans seem to hate the concept of robotics inevitably taking over and supplanting humanity as the dominant life form. This stems from a few places but mostly I'd argue it comes from the fear that we aren't valuable physically, that we can be replaced by machinery which functionally has the same or better efficiencies as us and that deep down we are just organic machinery with a fuzzy coded expiration date comparatively. But the more you look at humanity we really are exactly that and there is no reason to believe there is anything more significantly deeper going on. On a cellular level we are simple dynamo powered machines utilizing oxygen as a fuel source to produce heat and motion. As you scale up the organism emergent structures with fine tuned mechanisms for survival, resource acquisition, management, treatment, and competition appear but at a fundamental level this isn't at all different from a giant robot made out of electrical components transforming electricity into heat and motion. There will come a time in human history where perhaps we will start to teeter on the precipice of losing our air of superiority over machines and accept that functionally that is indeed an extended future of humanity but there is monstrous amounts of narcissism that needs to be addressed before then.
And I am not saying that the future of humanity is exclusively machinery either. Organic machinery is fantastic and amazing at its efficiency but it does come with some significant weaknesses, just as hard machinery would. A race of exclusively robots would have just as many potential vulnerabilities as organics do ranging from hardware to software, magnetic effects, solar flares, computer viruses, EMPs, and so on and so forth. The key to me is just like the incessant debate over the use of fossil fuels. Fossil fuels are a means to an end, it just so happens that the big players right now are avoiding the endgame and bloating the game time because of their own narcissism. If we could press a button as Elon Musk said and stop fossil fuel usage overnight it would be incredibly irresponsible and catastrophic to humanity as a whole to do that, but using fossil fuels to accelerate toward renewable energy is absolutely what the endgame is because fossil fuels have a limit we will eventually reach. Biological life also has a limit that it will reach but that comes more in the form of habitability of their environment and the time window it takes to adapt to new conditions. How have we historically addressed rapidly changing conditions we can't physically evolve to? Well you don't see Eskimos walking around with 4 inches of blubber under their skin. They developed diets, clothing, and living conditions to supplement their biology as a physical hard defense against them. It has always been humanity's goal to meet challenges through innovation and in the face of the inhospitable development of hard technology to act as our second skin that makes it possible. An astronaut is not physically grown in a lab to withstand the conditions of space naked, they are armored with the robot exoskeleton mastery that is the space suit. So too will eventually humanity be faced with the prospect of converting, slowly, piece by piece, to a hard-tech life which enables more effective survival in harsh conditions. But our narcissism about humanity being strictly biological and pure will slow us down like the fossil fuel industry is slowing down renewable energy. If we hope to reach beyond earth reliably in the future the best way forward may not be 100% organic.

The pain in my shoulder is absolutely horrible. It’s not discomfort or an ache or even a sharp / shooting pain. It’s my upper arm, right below the joint. It feels like everything solid in there has shattered, and the shards are shredding the soft tissue down to my elbow. I don’t have the final say in whether it decides to cooperate when I ask it nicely to do something.
It feels a hell of a lot like when my femoral head was raging with a secret infection. But what are the chances that I would develop a second bone infection, let alone in a spot that isn’t already my most susceptible (where the bone and prosthesis meet)? If I’d had some sort of injury in my shoulder, that would at least make sense.
But ...
The highest point (physically) that hurts is exactly where I got my second jab, much higher than the first and very close to the knobby part of the joint.
Also, I get the rare, awful side effects.
I know, I know. It’s super unlikely.
But ...

Another distinction between Winnicott's concept of the transitional object and Lacan's objet petit a is that the former is more clearly situated in a developmental process arising out of a successful mirror phase between mother and infant. Of course, the structuring of the illusory space of the transitional object can go awry—for example, by fetishization of the object as representing the maternal phallus, a perverse structure, or by maintaining a totally subjective object, a psychotic one (Winnicott 1953). Everything depends on the successful negotiation of an earlier process with the real mother, lacking which an intensive regressive experience in analysis is required. For Lacan, the problematic involves failure of the paternal function (a failure of what he termed “symbolic castration”), leaving the subject vulnerable to a kind of slippage toward jouissance. In essence, the process of becoming a separate subject and entering the symbolic order is seen by Lacan as a function of the paternal role (as a third), which institutes symbolic castration—i.e., disruption of the fantasy of wholeness and unity. Similarly, the analyst's task is unequivocally on the side of supporting separateness and difference, facilitating expression of desire within the symbolic order. On the one side (Winnicott), the analyst may risk an overzealous attempt to provide a missing infantile need; on the other (Lacan), the danger is that the importance of the maternal holding function for proper psychic structuralization will not be appreciated. An advantage of the Lacanian model is that it sees the tension between jouissance and desire as a permanent feature of every person's life, between the limits of satisfaction and the yearning for the impossible.

Lacan's objet petit a, cause of desire, is an expression of the lack inherent in human beings, whose incompleteness and early helplessness produce a quest for fulfillment beyond the satisfaction of physical needs. The central dynamic of desire involves the search for objects to which it can be linked within the logic of the pleasure principle. On the other hand, the limitations of satisfaction in symbolic reality are challenged by the push to enjoy an impossible jouissance, involving, in essence, a fantasy of merger and desubjectification.

Well... That was a strange dream! XD and I'm sorry for this crappy drawing xD
I feel like Leliana, because I had a dream of the Maker himself. He was standing on a little hill between many humans kneeling before him... He was as small as a child.. maybe he was a dwarf? Because his voice was very deep and dark. I don't remember what he was saying, I'm sorry 😭
But I remember that I was really confused by his ears! Human ears but with bigger elven ears behind them.. but very close together, they almost merged.. and then these tiny elven ears in front of the human ears... almost like spikes...?
This was so confusing to me but I thought in dream, that this might be the ears of a true half blood. So... A human and one of the elvhen gods maybe? 😅 Or maybe... This is a creature made up of all races?!? And the little spikey ears should be like qunari ears?!?
What ya think? Did I see the Maker or was Solas making fun of me in the Fade? 😂

Obsolete Theory - Downfall - Album Review
Obsolete Theory – Downfall – Album Review
Artist: Obsolete Theory Album Title: Downfall Label: My Kingdom Music Date of Release: 21 May 2021 Billed as ‘post black metal’ by the record label and PR peeps, I approached the sophomore album from Obsolete Theory, ‘Downfall’, with caution. I have often found the post black metal tab to be a rather wide, generous descriptor within which a whole host of different styles and ideas can sit. In…
