2023.03.29 09:31 Erwinblackthorn Furie (2019) vs Furies (2022): When Woke Film Theory Hits Vietnam

I am a firm believer that action films require a male lead in order to be effective in the action market. Nearly every one of these films is about revenge, taking on a spirit of vengeance, or taking on the role of justice. But the strange part of this is that both vengeance and justice are feminine deities in mythology, and at multiple levels. The male action hero is less about taking revenge or enacting justice and is more about understanding their role in taking revenge, which can result in not wanting revenge at all or realizing there is something more grand to the journey they enter. This is why mystery and whodunit stories appeal to women, because women enjoy aspects of revenge and justice, while being less interested in the more masculine aspects like enlightenment and the hero’s journey.
That statement alone is enough to set any wokescold’s blood a’boiling, because it’s a factual statement.
None of this means it’s impossible to make an action movie with a female lead, it just means it will be built differently with themes exclusive to the female role. I’ve talked about the movie Furie here and there when talking about female roles in stories because it’s a clear example of how to do it right when the female role is meant to be a tiger mother archetype. The story is simple: a mother has her child kidnapped by bad guys and she goes out to retrieve her child and save her from the dangerous world they live in. This kind of story is very primitive, with how it’s no different than if a tigress lost her cub and had to find it in the wilderness. The tiger mother finds her strength by being more feminine, closer to mother earth, and using her nurturing spirit to stay dedicated to her main goal: protect her cub.
Not only protect, but also allow her cub to flourish in the world by making sure her child studies hard, gets a good job, and gives the air of “not being good enough” because that is what the world tells us every day. We will never please the world and feel comfortable at any moment for any reason unless we willingly let our guard down, and that’s when the snake devours the cub. The tiger mother views the world as harsh, unforgiving, and a constant threat of corruption that will swallow their child whole. They are not paranoid, they are realistic. They are not carefree, they are careful. This mentality causes them to become very authoritarian, and so the tiger mother might as well be called the empress, because they are to be the empress of both their world and the world of their child’s.
A fury is one of the Furies from Greek mythology, who are the 3 goddesses of vengeance. Nemesis came before them as a goddess of revenge, but it is more like Nemesis handles anger between gods and the furies cast curses upon humans. In the movie Furie, there is a detective who is after the same villain, with the villain being this drug lady(as in female version of drug lord) and she is the dark sorceress of the streets. The Drug Lady represents the terrible chaotic side of the earth mother, with her minions being these evil demons who kill and rape anything in their path. The entire story of Furie was a mythological tale presented in modern day Vietnam in one of the most beautiful depictions of such a tale I’ve seen in a while.
This is not meant to be a hero’s journey other than the journey of the detective, who gains a gift from the tiger mother in the form of protection while he also saves her in the end, meaning there is a supportive synergy going on in their relationship. The authoritarian femme fatale assisting the masculine authority is a story about control between both family and society. An action movie like this is why I love action films when they have effort put into them, because there is deep subject matter being played out through simple interactions between individuals and between that we get epic fight scenes.
Let me tell you: these fight scenes are awesome.
It’s not just about a woman beating up a bunch of dudes. It’s about how she struggles to get through each fight but will still carry on because that’s what a mother does for her child. It’s no different than when a noir hero fights his way through hordes of goons in order to enact his revenge. All of these little fights represent thoughts in our head like “give up” and “go back”, which are meant to detract us from our main goal. Get hit too much or get surrounded and we are forced to play defense or hide behind something, which is no different than being like a turtle hiding in their shell. The turtle, the hermit, only works in isolation and it’s meant to be the moment of introspect.
All of that is a way of saying that the action hero should only play defense to plan a better attack, because the world around them will not give up on the onslaught. These are the moments in an action movie where someone is healing or planning a new attack, with the occasional doubt hitting them near the end. The movie Furie has these moments, specifically for the tiger mother to heal and make a plan to get her daughter back, which enhances the movie’s credibility. We need these high and low points of an action movie for rest, progression of story, getting to know the characters more, and also we don’t expect a budget to be constant expensive action all the time.
If anything, the furie in this movie is a representation of Alecto, goddess of unceasing anger, due to her dedication that goes beyond the death of those who wrong her. In the mythology, the furies are three sisters who live in the underworld, specifically Erebus(meaning darkness), which is why it’s appropriate to have this movie mostly at night and involve the criminal underworld. Whenever an action movie involves the criminal underworld as a setting, they are mirroring the underworld of mythology in a form of katabasis, a journey into the underworld. Think of something like Orpheus or Dante or Jesus making a trip into the underworld in order to achieve a goal. The underworld in this case is always related to something like a wilderness or a hedonistic primitive state of mind that’s full of everything unlawful because the primitive state is before society and order is established.
The male enters the underworld to become enlightened and the female lives there because it’s their domain.
Rape, murder, theft, drug use, kidnapping, everything that we are able to do as humans but only do once our shadow has taken over. The shadow, the darkness within us, is what is so present in the underworld that the entire world is enveloped in darkness, under this shadow. When taken symbolically, this movie works beautifully and it makes sense to have the evil villain kidnap the child of our tiger mother heroine and also try to harvest her organs. This villain, named Thanh Soi, appears to be something like a big bad wolf who goes around and devours children. Being a female antagonist, she represents the ruthless underworld and chaos that causes the world to be so treacherous and causes the tiger mother to be so dedicated.
I have nothing but praise for this first movie because it sticks so close to mythology and fits itself into an alchemical form of storytelling. It’s no surprise this movie was nominated for awards and it probably would have won a lot of them if people respected the beautiful choreography and neon noir aesthetics. I would even go far enough to say that it’s one of my favorite action movies of the decade, if not in the top 10 of all time. It provides a female action heroine in a way that works because she is entirely feminine in her approach to everything, down to her not really having a hero’s journey because that’s reserved for the male assistant she has, who is in the form of a detective.
Sadly, thanks to the colors pink and purple always being present in these neon noir movies, we have encountered a massive issue in how these kinds of movies will be made in the future.
For a quick reminder, noir is the film genre where a cynical hero enters an existentialist journey that changes them for the worst because they were touched by the darkest elements of the world. In noir, the femme fatale always aids in bringing this male hero to his downfall, because the femme fatale is a representation of Lilith and this existential crisis our hero enters represents the fallen state of Adam. These stories are aided by German expressionism and poetic realism, to both ground and extend the story into an almost surreal world that we can relate to. The inner mind of the hero gets reflected out onto the world to cause this expressionism, which allows aspects like elongated shadows and warped environments to symbolically fit into the story and make it look fascinating.
Neo-noir is a postmodernist form of this genre that takes some of the aspects of noir and tries to experiment with more current trends, keeping some of the aesthetics and aspects that resulted from decades of pulp stories being told and merged together in what I would like to call “mental slop” that is created in media by merging elements together after years of experimentation and deconstruction. No longer does it have to do with a cynical hero or an existential crisis, because now the barriers of the genre are removed and people simply recognize it as noir for some vague aspects that might relate to noir, such as dealing with a criminal underworld or the snappy way hardboiled dialogue would be written.
A good way to put it is that neo-noir holds noir “themes” and “sensibilities”.
This is further continued into neon noir, which is not a fully established genre quite yet, but is noticed recently with the increased popularity of retrowave and cyberpunk. The neon lights of the 80s are brought into this neo-noir story to create a contrast between two colors, similar to how noir was filmed in black and white. This is an aesthetic choice and is usually in the form of contrasting purple against a blue because these are complimentary colors. Lights are very present in this new genre, but the light is less of a source of clarity and more like a new form of obscurity. The expressionism in these movies are used for mood enhancing, due to the tranquility of blue and the excitement of red.
All of this is important to note because postmodernists will take everything that works about these factors and then try to avoid anything that makes sense about it. They go by whatever they feel and hope their experimentation doesn’t blow up in their face. Sometimes it works, like in the case of the movie Drive, and other times it doesn’t like in the sequel to Furie called Furies.
Everything was set up for this sequel. There was no way for it to be worse. It had more money, it had Hollywood investing in it, and the concept of the tiger mother can be used as much as any typical action hero setup could be used. Just have a villain who runs a crime syndicate, have a person who was wronged by this crime lord, they seek out revenge, and it ends with the villain being defeated.
Simple, right?
Well… this movie didn’t do that. I mean, it did, but it didn’t in the way that works. There’s a villain, a male drug lord who runs a casino and kidnaps women to sell their bodies for sex. There is a person who is wronged, who is a woman that lost her husband and child at the hands of this drug lord. This woman is seeking revenge and she defeats the villain at the end.
But she’s not the protagonist. She’s not even A protagonist. In fact, they made her the actual villain of the story. The villain… kills the villain. They probably thought they were doing a “Darth Vader killing off the Emperor” kind of thing, but they weren’t.
We are told in the beginning that this woman is to be like a mentor, the fairy godmother who protects our protagonist and guides her through this treacherous world. She’s meant to be a sort of adopted tiger mother, the way lesbians do it, and instead turns into the wicked stepmother by the end. But it seems I’m getting ahead of myself, so I’ll explain this story in a more coherent manner.
This sequel is a prequel. It happens before the first movie. We are introduced to a character named Bi(pronounced like BEE) who claims in a monologue that she was “destined for darkness”. Hey, makes sense. The Furies were born from Nyx in one of the mythologies, so being born from night to be destined for darkness is a sort of match made in heaven for this kind of character.
She becomes a homeless wreck after a drunk man tries to rape her and killed her mother. She killed him and is forever reminded of that moment every time she gets blood on her hands(a running theme we will see later). This is where a lady named Jacqueline finds her and brings her under her wing, hiding her with two other girls. Symbolically, we can determine these three girls are meant to be the furies: Alecto (“Unceasing in Anger”), Tisiphone (“Avenger of Murder”), and Megaera (“Jealous”).
Already, this entire thing fell apart and deviated from the mythology.
I say this because the other two girls are nothing like the furies of mythology and I can only assume Bi is meant to be Tisiphone because her mother was murdered. But she already got her revenge, so there’s not much for her to do in that regard. The girl named Hong is meant to be a cute Harley Quinn style psycho and the girl Thanh Soi is meant to be a butch biker. The two girls want their own forms of revenge against the drug lord that runs the streets they live in, mostly because both used to be slave girls and want to free their fellow women who have been enslaved. Jacqueline convinced them that she wants to free the slave girls as well, and all of this training that she puts them through is for this mission, but there’s a catch.
Jacqueline kept her relationship with this drug lord secret, because she was working with him and ended up having her husband and child killed by this drug lord. For years, she planned out revenge and set up several spies within his ranks, including the boyfriend of Hong. All of this is revealed in the end, so we go through the whole movie believing they are out for vigilante justice against crimes, specifically against women, when it was all because a bitter mother was betrayed after trusting a man too much. Already, this sounds like a mess, and it is. This prequel makes such a simple story incredibly convoluted and tries to use twists as a plaster for weak narrative and symbol subversion. But there’s a reason for this.
The woman who acted as the main heroine in the first movie also plays the role of Jacqueline. These are two different women in the movie’s setting, being played by the same woman. On top of that, the first movie was directed by a man and now this prequel is written and directed by… this same actress in question, Veronica Ngo. That’s right, she decided to play the villain after she wrote the script and directed the entire thing.
It was designed for this woman to crank herself silly.
And boy does it show in the movie. Quite literally in every scene. I say this because the first movie held shots for a while and had the simple story unfold slowly, with long moments to settle down and let the beautiful environment sink in. In the prequel, we are supposed to enjoy flashing colors as every scene is cut and edited like a movie trailer. I’m not kidding when I say that.
Every. Single. Scene.
Even the scene where Bi is being raped by a drunkard is treated like a movie trailer, with the camera changing all over the place and music playing as she monologues about how everything sucks. This camera is a massive pain to sit through, because it’s either constantly moving, getting splashed with CGI blood, zooming over people’s shoulders, or switching between 5 different conversations before a single thought could be finalized. It does that thing where someone is talking in a different scene and then a few seconds later the camera goes to where the person is talking, as if the transition was meant to be meaningful, but it would be for any little thing.
This is the sign of someone trying to experiment with things but are completely incompetent in what they’re doing. It gets worse when we enter fight scenes that look like they were edited frame by frame to hide the fact that they didn’t know what they wanted the fights to look like. The only time a camera holds for longer than a second is when someone dies off screen or Bi starts to suffer from her PTSD. And boy does she suffer.
They have a moment where she kills a random goon, gets blood on her hands, and when they return to their hideout, she vomits in the sink. She gets flashbacks to her first assault and the day her mother dies, which results in her trying to fight Thanh when she tries to calm Bi down. They fight in the bathroom and one of them knocks a valve loose, which causes the shower to turn on and shower both of them as they try to grapple and fall to their knees. This moment is meant to be a loving embrace between sisters during a time of need and support, with Thanh being a protective sister who is dedicated in making sure the new sister is able to get through harsh mental anguish whenever she is triggered.
This, my friend, is the entire problem with this movie.
I understand it’s meant to be emotional and heartfelt. I don’t deny there is thought put behind a moment like this. The music swells, the colors are somber, the water slowly falls on them as if to say the water purifies their thoughts and cools their head. I get it. But what the hell does any of that have to do with being a fury?
This isn’t about taking vengeance, this all feminist woes being presented for the sake of representation. Hong later on has a birthday party and they all celebrate by singing 90s songs(because this movie is meant to take place in the 90s) and when Bi came into the picture they had a makeover montage. This is an action movie written like a teen romcom without the romance and nothing in it is meant to be comedic. There are light hearted moments, sure, but I would never call it a comedy except for this one moment where a drug addict begs for drugs and the drug lord throws it on the ground for him to snort it, and then the drug lord pisses all over him.
To me, that is funny, but it’s treated as a horrible moment to make us hate the villain who doesn’t even really do anything. One of the most disappointing moments is when the furies sneak into a bedroom with him by disguising themselves as club whores and they have the perfect moment to kill him. Bi messes up by being too obvious with her stab attack and he runs away with a slight wound. This is where we have a fight that is meant to be a key moment: a hallway decorated with silhouettes of dancing women as the place fills up with black suited goons.
This moment is meant to show how brave and powerful the girls are, and all it does is accidentally present a massive stereotype where women can't get the job done and they are granted luxuries by having beautiful bodies while wearing a lot of makeup. When I saw this, I figured at least the action scenes will make up for the lack of theme, and… boy was I wrong.
These action scenes, as I said before, are a mess. Everything is a close up so we can’t see what’s going on and every attack is a wide swing that gets blocked by an arm that comes up 5 seconds too early. There is this back and forth that happens with each fight that makes it look functional and the music keeps it pumping, but it always looks like the fight coordinador told them to do everything wrong as a joke and the director was none the wiser. There are even moments where they use the wrong sound effect, like when someone gets punched and it does the stabbing sound effect.
Sure these are tiny technical things, but it gets worse when I am forced to mention the infamous bike scene.
So, Hong dies at the hands of this guy called Son, who is meant to be the dragon below the drug lord. Her boyfriend sees it, with her boyfriend acting as a spy who has infiltrated the drug lord’s ranks, so he’s standing there shocked and everyone ignores him. The remaining two sisters decided to run away on a bike and ensue in a chase sequence that is some of the worst CGI fighting I’ve seen in a while. There was no reason for any of this, they just put it in because the director thought it would look cool. I have no idea what it is with women and motorcycle chases, but there’s something where a woman on a motorcycle is seen as a “sexy” thing, specifically for women.
Not sexy to be sexual, but it’s something that women find aesthetically pleasing, and I can only imagine that it has something to do with the feeling of a bike vibrating between their legs. It also has to do with the idea of danger, because it’s easier to fall off a motorcycle than it is to fall out of a car with the doors closed. That, and I think it’s a fantasy for women to actually ride them without crashing. It’s the director’s way of saying “See! Women can ride motorcycles too!”, as if refraining from instantly crashing is an achievement.
But considering these are women and they are Asian, the fact they are not crashing instantly is a miracle.
What makes it funny is that in order to say “women can ride motorcycles too”, they put these women on a motorcycle and then transition it into a CGI race through the city with the motorcycle sitting in place in front of a greenscreen. We can easily tell this is happening because the wheels aren’t moving and there is the world’s fakest looking background flying by with whacky angles and movements being made with the camera. Bad guys fly into the screen from behind like TIE fighters in the old Star Wars movies, clearly breaking through the scenery, and I could not stop laughing at how terrible it all looked. And they somehow managed to make it worse by having a moment where one of the girls gets knocked off the bike and the other keeps riding to go up a ramp and onto a roof, only to get knocked off the bike herself and the bike flies off the roof and explodes in a corner.
I think I forgot to mention this but EVERYTHING EXPLODES in this movie. It’s as if the direct thought “hey, this part doesn’t have much substance to it, let’s fill it up with explosions.” There’s even a part earlier where they light a building on fire because it was a place where girls were being held captive. They throw lighters in random areas that have lamp oil or alcohol conveniently placed for them and random areas of the building start blowing up. What are you guys lacing in your cocaine over there, nitroglycerin?
Finally, we come back to the ending, the part of the story that ruined it for the movie. Bi and Thanh go to the drug lord’s hideout, they seek revenge for their lost sister, and meanwhile we have Hong’s boyfriend kill Son because… he was her boyfriend and had sex with her. Way to go movie, that sure shows what men care for. We only fight for those we bang and the sex was really that important for him. Forget meaningful things like a firmly built relationship or a child being made between a man and a woman, those aren’t important to a man. It’s all about the dedication someone has to a girl who sold her body for money.
But you know what? His motives and story aren’t important because we don’t even really see him. In fact, they bring in several characters that we’ve never seen before and act as if we’re supposed to know them. This is when they enter the drug lord’s underground casino, with the casino representing a massive gamble that this entire mission has been taking. However, the concept of gambling doesn’t mean much since the story repeatedly hits us with talk about fate, which is meant to relate to the sisters of fate in Greek mythology. I thought we were going to get some kind of motif going on every time they mentioned fate, but they just said “this is our fate” and that was it.
So they enter the casino and start shooting up the place. I don’t know what guns they are using, but they have enough ammo in their magazines to practically be infinite. There’s even an editing flub where they were supposed to show one of the girls reload, but they just show her pulling the slide back to load a bullet in the chamber, as if that’s enough. At least this part of the movie tries to implement gun-fu, but the way they do it is surreal because it’s entirely for show and there’s nothing practical in any of their attacks. They come with limited ammo and see themselves outnumbered, but they end up shooting people in the hands and feet while fighting as a way to ease off some attacks, to then shoot the enemy in the head.
Fast forward a bit and we have one of the stupidest twists enacted on screen. Jacqueline came with the girls to finish this once and for all, and while fighting she is seen getting stabbed in the back by a henchman. The drug lord watches it happen on a CCTV and celebrates. This looks like a perfect time for Bi to get her revenge on the main villain. But no, that would be the smart thing to do.
Instead, they have Bi and Thanh held at gunpoint in a room after a surprisingly difficult fight against a crackhead armed with a syringe who walked up to them like a zombie, and no I am not making that up. It sounds stupid, because it is, but they put that into the movie because someone decided it would be a good time to include something zombie related in a movie that has nothing to do with zombies. So, they’re held at gunpoint and then Jacqueline barges in and shoots the drug lord’s limbs to make sure he suffers. The boyfriend of Hong also comes in and is like “yeah, let’s get our revenge on this sick bastard”.
Then Jacqueline shoots the boyfriend of Hong. Everyone in the room is like “what the hell is going on?!” and Jacqueline kills off the drug lord and goes “Ok, now Thanh has to kill Bi” and both of them are just as confused as the audience. Even if Jacqueline was this new villain who becomes the new drug lord, it’s not like either of the girls would join her if she continued the sex trade. So, Thanh does the expected and tries to shoot Jacqueline instead, but was too slow and gets shot herself. The final fight is between Jacqueline and Bi, with Bi shooting Jacqueline several times.
But this is the part that made me really pissed: they fire the same gun over 30 times without reloading and then the second the gun is trained on Bi’s head… it’s empty.
The only way for this to be more convenient for Bi is if a bird flew in and airdropped a white turd into the eye of Jacqueline and had it explode for good measure. But because that didn’t happen, we have Bi tired as all hell and she collapses in a room full of dead bodies. Police come in and find her alive, arrest her, and then imprison her for 15 years. The big twist of this, the reason this is a prequel is revealed in this single moment where we see her leave her jail cell.
Who was Bi this whole time?
She was the villain of the first movie: Thanh Soi.
Apparently, the name is meant to be something like “she-wolf” and she took the name in honor of her dedicated sister in battle, Thanh Soi. This means that this entire time, the one we’re to be rooting for ends up being this horrible monster from the first movie that was kidnapping children and harvesting their organs. All because she… didn’t like to get blood on her hands.
If you think that none of this makes sense: welcome to the club.
The first movie was brilliant and coherent all the way down to a mythological level. It hit us deep in our unconscious and is something to be remembered years after watching it for how heartfelt each scene was made. It even brought some sympathy to some of the villains with how one of them was spared by the tiger mother because the guy’s own mother was present. It followed a theme of motherhood, while the second movie tried to follow a theme of sisterhood.
Where motherhood was filled with morals and justice, the sisterhood was filled with contradictions and partying.
I do not believe this was done out of a lack of budget or a rushed job. This was the result of how wokeness infiltrates even some of the least western influenced countries to create senseless garbage that nobody likes. We are not only to sympathize with one villain, but we are told that we have to sympathize with two, while the male villains are completely reprehensible. This movie was designed with woke Charlie’s Angels in mind and it shows with how they took three women to fight for a mentor and the only male on the team is treated like a bag of meat. What makes it more hilarious for me is that I’m constantly told by the woke that it’s bad to give women tragic backstories for why they become villains and there’s no excuse for having rape as part of this tragic backstory.
This is the feminism that is designed to trigger western feminists while hoping that Hollywood accepts it as “feminist enough”. This movie was not designed with men in mind, because female action movies are always plagued with over edited fight scenes, girl power moments, and romcom montages. I wish I was kidding, but I have yet to see a female focused action movie that refrained from doing these pointless representation calls, because the goal is to represent in this way.
She Hulk, Charlie's Angels, feminist Ghost Busters, Men in Black International, Atomic Blonde, Captain Marvel, Gunpowder Milkshake, Lucy, Jupiter Ascending, Disney Star Wars, basically every Disney and Pixar movie now. All of these movies are designed specifically to say women can do stuff guys can and then fail to show them doing stuff guys can. Then they wonder why these movies flop and get memed into oblivion. The only people who care about seeing a woman beating up men are angry women, because that is a low resolution view of what the movie is even supposed to say. The only people begging to see that on screen are women who hate men enough to want to beat them up.
This is not a lot of people. This is surprisingly a small fraction of the population and this is who these movies are trying to appeal to. Everything else around this low resolution declaration is meant to be spectacle for the sake of spectacle.
Why did the motorcycle explode? Because explosions are cool.
Why did the girls light a building on fire? Because fire is cool and it leads to explosions.
Why are they shooting the limbs of people? Because shooting limbs is cool.
Why does the camera get covered in CGI blood every 5 seconds? Because blood splatters are cool.
I’m not going to sit here and say something like that lacks style. It has style and it is spectacular. But when placed in a movie with zero meaning and zero purpose, this baseless spectacle gets lost in a sea of nonsense and there’s nothing to hold onto other than the possible impressive choreography or the impressive practical effects. This movie had a little bit of something, but it could never hold a candle to the dedication and effort put into the first movie. I also want to mention the camera work because this is also tied into woke ideology.
Every time the plot is trying to be expressed or shown, the camera and scenes are given the smallest amount of lingering. For example, a turf war begins after they blow up the slave holding… place and it’s shown as a turf war in two events. A person gets shot and people start getting attacked by random. These events lasted for about 5 seconds each. We’re told that Bi is homeless and fighting the local gang by having her steal a wallet and then have someone shout “hey, this is our turf!” all in the span of 5 seconds. We go from the girls going through an outfit montage during a plan to the girls working at the club of the drug lord in about 5 seconds.
If you didn’t get it by now: everything in this movie goes by the 5 second rule, but only when it is about the plot.
Do you want to know what lasts longer than 5 seconds? Moments where the girls are talking about stuff they like and parts where they pose together to present girl power. So to the woke, it takes the tiniest amount of time to show how someone enters the worst stage of their life, but it takes minutes to let us know that these girls plan to stick together and fight side by side. Everything important is done with quick flashes and everything unimportant is lingered on. This is a tactic of the woke to bring the mundane into the essential.
The goal is to feature tiny bits of important things to let the viewer understand why they are in that position, and then hammer in the idea of wokeness that the director or writer wanted to virtue signal for. The woke do not dedicate their focus on the themes of the story that matter to the audience and instead force the viewer to put up with things the woke writer is focused on so that the propaganda is viewed in the first place. We are promised a story about a mother seeking revenge and instead we are treated with the rise of a villain who became that way because she was abused as a child.
Using the woke lens of intersectionality and critical feminist theory, we can determine that the themes of this movie dwindled into arbitrary concepts like PTSD and girls trying to stay friends till the end. All of these are the result of mental weakness and toxic behavior that is now being given an excuse because the context of why they do these toxic actions are presented, even if it’s for 5 seconds. Now a woman like Bi is able to be excused for harvesting the organs of children and even blame men because it all started when her mother was a prostitute and a random drunk guy raped her. This is the polar opposite from how a tiger mother acts, because we are not trying to give excuses for a dedicated mother doing what a dedicated mother does. The tiger mother is a big part of what causes us to survive and is something to strive for because that’s what allows us to reproduce.
Being raped and then suffering PTSD over it doesn’t.
Thanks to intersectionality, the woke demand to present vices as virtuous and weakness as strength because this is how they take the outliers and bring them to the center. This goes beyond postmodernist subjectivity. It becomes subjective advocacy to obfuscate reality itself and pretend it’s incoherent just because their own agenda is incoherent. This is why every time there is a rule, they will pretend there is an exception to it, just because they don’t understand what that rule is or it’s not detailed in a way that prevents horribly bad faith takes. Every established rule for writing established doesn’t have an exception, just an attempt to reject what’s actually effective. These rules were established because they work and because people respond to them positively.
The woke hate positive results because those are the results that signify the rules work.
I don’t mind a female lead in a movie. I also don’t mind when a female lead is in an action movie. I don’t even mind a sisterhood or girls having magic powers or anything like that. Those things make sense to me when they are done properly, which the movie Furie did when they had the tiger mother as the protagonist and a harvester of child organs as the antagonist. That makes 100% sense to me, both symbolically and entertainment wise.
What I don’t like is when wokeness barges into established IPs and tries to change everything to say absolutely nothing of value. I’ve noticed that these feminist and LGBT stories always try to deal with the same nonsense that is done in a sad attempt to connect with some sort of audience they have in mind. Sexual abuse, PTSD, feeling oppressed, mental disorders, spousal abuse, prostitution, sexual deviancy, leaving their family to be with a sexual partner, drug abuse, being found by a guardian lesbian to feel protected, entering a sisterhood or a group of fellow LGBT agents of destruction.
These types of stories don’t mean anything to normal people. We can see some of these things as a terrible thing to have happen and we can attach a negative symbol to these things, but there’s no way in hell a person who’s never experienced any of this feels represented. The representation of a minority, that just wants to claim oppression because of their own choices or because of something that rarely happens, is a losing game. Normal people will either hate it or not care. I have every reason to blame the director for these horrible decisions and I have every reason to claim her poor decisions are because she fell for woke nonsense as a woman.
But no matter what, I refuse to let such an issue deter me from liking the first movie, even though she’s the main actress. The people featured in a story mean nothing to the story outside of how well they can act the part and be the character. Now we even have to say that the actor must retain the source material and culturally make sense, all because the woke want to bring the outliers to the center and turn every Disney character black. Especially the red heads. I only covered the feminist aspect of wokeness here, so we can leave woke race swapping for another time.
Furie is an amazing movie that will be remembered positively for years to come.
Furies is woke trash that will only be remembered for how terrible it was.

2023.03.29 09:28 Merujo Latecomers - WWII Style

I just read a post here where someone mentioned how frustrating latecomers are. Figured some of you might appreciate this story. My mom was a pilot in WWII (one of the Women Airforce Service Pilots, or WASP). At one point, the WASP finally got their own, distinctive uniforms in "Santiago Blue" - a step up from the oversized men's coveralls they were originally given.
On one trip to drop off aircraft in New York, a fellow WASP offered Mom a ticket to see a new musical, Oklahoma!, courtesy of her dad who worked for Bennett Cerf (who got a lot of free tickets, LOL). But the ladies were late dropping off their planes and getting into the city. They raced to the theater, where the show was underway. However, their funky uniforms - unfamiliar to everyone - caused a buzz as they headed to their front row seats. Celeste Holm caught sight of them from the stage, and literally stopped the show and asked for the house lights. "WHAT ARE YOU?" Ms. Holm called out. Mom and her colleague explained, and Ms. Holm yelled, "WOW!" before the show started up again.
Decades later, after Mom passed, I sent Ms. Holm a note saying what a kick Mom got out of being an accidental showstopper. I found myself added to her invite list for events at her home in New York. Unfortunately, not living near NYC, I was never able to attend. I regret that very much.
Lost Mom 22 years ago this Friday, so it brings me a little joy to share one of her favorite stories. :)

2023.03.29 09:05 Max726_ Niece, cars and interstellar

So it started out with me and my niece (she looked about 7) in my backyard in a shed. The shed looked like a regular shed except there was this part where there was just a pit where an elevator that came up occasionally to bring up food. After that me and my niece went inside where I had to shit. My house was massive, like a mansion, 4 total floors, big open areas. One of the bathrooms were taken by my dad so I went to the other where the door was wonky where it open and closed in like 4 dimensions and it has glass windows so I had to cover those up with a towel. After that I decided to take my niece for a drive and I got in my dad's truck and it felt like I was wayyyy to small to be driving. Reaching the gas and brake felt nearly impossible. So I drove around the block, speeding, and came back where my dad said "Yeah i could hear you speeding" and nothing else so I just went inside. Oh and I almost crashed it due to the fact I could barely touch the brakes. Me and my niece went downstairs to watch a movie or sum. I decided to watch my favourite movie, interstellar but I decided to go upstairs to get some snacks and candy. (BTW this house wasn't a mansion so I could only assume that mansion was my nieces house.)
I passed out. I just dropped. Cause I woke up at 4am (it said 16:00 on my watch but I'll just assume that's an inconsistency due to the fact it was pitch black outside and it looked like spring) due to jcar. I took a whiz and we went downstairs so I could finish my movie. Surprise! Most of my friends were down there and my sister (4-5). Jcar proceeded to show me a video of my niece's snapchat story (she was no longer there) where it showed her putting laxatives in my hot chocolate so when I came back down I would drink it and shit. But instead for once, sleeping saved my life. I still wanted to watch interstellar so I put it on and for some reason they all wanted to stay as far back from the TV as possible. I just looked at them weirdly, make a snarky comment and moved a piece of the couch closer. But the movie was in really shitty quality the closer you moved towards it so I just returned to the same position. We finished off watching the first 10 minutes where it shows there fragments in the wind turning into different animals (including a giraffe but with a yellow human body?!) and jcar who moved up was dissing the movie before it even started.
Notes: Pretty damn weird dream huh? Considering I haven't had a dream in a month it honestly seems like everything accumulated over the course of a month and just crammed it into a dream.

2023.03.29 09:04 SourSeaPickle249 At the end of the movie Puss in Boots: The Last Wish (2022), Puss, Kitty Softpaws, and Perrito all sail into the sunset accompanied by undeniably sentimental Lord of the Rings-like flute music (nearly directly copied from) giving it major “Into the West” or into the unknown lands vibes. Creative.

2023.03.29 09:01 LoneWolfInCyberia Close Encounters of the 3rd Kind
In 1972, Dr. J.Allen Hynek, an astronomer and UFO specialist, came up with the concept of close encounter, where a person witnesses an UFO. He classified them into 3 kinds, where the last one was direct contact with an alien. It was his book The UFO Experience, that would be the basis for Steven Spielberg's Close Encounters of the 3rd Kind, that came after his earlier Jaws proved to be a runaway success. He was influenced by 50's sci fi movies like The Day The Earth Stood Still and Plan 9 from Outer Space for this.
The opening scenes are a medley with 2 missing fighter air craft,reappering in a sandstorm, and a near fatal mid air collision over Indianapolis averted, with both pilots reporting a mysterious UFO in the skies.
Meanwhile in the small town of Muncie, Indiana, a small boy Barry Guilier, finds all the toys operating by themselves in his room, and an unearthly light enveloping his home. His mom Jillian( Melinda Dillon) rushes frantically to stop him from going out, however it is too late as he is abducted by the aliens.
Roy Neary( Richard Dreyfuss) , a power plant worker in Muncie is summoned to handle a mysterious power outage, and encounters mysterious UFOs while driving.
Meanwhile in Dharamshala, India, French UFO expert Claude Lacombe( Francois Truffaut) listens to devotees chanting a mysterious mantra, that is a combination of 5 notes played over and over.
Roy fired from his job is now obsessed with UFOs, keeps getting visions of a mysterious mountain. Lacombe back at his observatory discovers that the 5 note sequence is getting a response when he attempts to communicate with outer space. While Jillian now just wants her son back as she goes on a hunt for him.
Personally I rate this among my favorite Sci-Fi movies, and also feel it is one of Spielberg's more under appreciated movies, not as popular as Jaws, Jurassic Park, ET or Raiders of the Lost Ark. I guess it was overshadowed by Star Wars in the same year.
My favorite part about the movie is how Spielberg uses the 5 note sequence as the central motif of the movie . John Williams in his career has given some memorable scores, but what he does here is something else. Interestingly, the 5 note sequence was choosen at random, there was no specific thought process behind it, Williams just experimented with many combinations, and finally both of them settled on this, as it looked good.
Also the rather mystical mood, as in the opening scene when a Mexican peasant is asked about the events he says. El sol salio anoche y me canto!(The sun came out last night and sang ). Again in the sequence set in India, when a holy person asks the assembled gathering where does those tones come from and all of them point upwards.
Much like in Jaws, Spielberg's character development adds the depth to this movie. Roy in a sense is similiar to Quint in Jaws, both driven by their obsession, to the extent he does not care that he has just been fired from his job. While Jillian just wants to have her son back. Both use images, Roy makes a mud model of the mountain, while Jillian draws it out on paper.
For a movie shot in the 70s, the special effects are brilliant, especially opening scene of Barry being abducted by the aliens, Roy's first encounter on the highway, and of course the last 15 minutes.
Richard Dreyfuss who earlier appeared as the biologist in Jaws, does an excellent job as the obsessed Roy, as does Melinda Dillon as Jillian wonderfully capturing a mother’s anguish over her missing son.
The interesting thing is director Francois Truffaut making a cameo appearance, most European new wave directors like Goddard were critical of Spielberg, whom they saw as a sell out to commercial interests. Truffaut was one of the few who admired Spielberg and a big supporter of him.
Worth a watch.

2023.03.29 08:54 3six5 Oh.. you wanna ruin my jw4 experience?

So, I went and saw JW4 the other day. Here's my theater experience... I got there in time for the last preview, so the lights were off. I found my way to my favorite section of the theater and sat down. There were two ladies around my age sitting off center on my row that were chatty and on their phones when the movie started. They kept chatting loudly and kept opening up their phones . So I did the usual passive aggressive things to signal they were interrupting my movie experience. .. like cough loudly and/or look over at them. To no avail. I was about to get up and go get a free ticket when I had this idea ... ...: sit next to them.
I picked up my stuff and did just that. "Hey, if imma have to listen to ya- I might as well join ya". -yeah ok... I flopped down in the seat next to them. The seat was full of small bags of chips . Oops. I Didn't mean to crush your snuck in snacks and handed them to the lady. It was dark.
Lady next to me only pulled her phone out once more.. I leaned over and stuck my face in. That was the last of that.
We ended up having a couple laughs at whisper level.. like John wick is always walking.. jejejeje.
The whole time I know they're smelling me cuz I just got done working at the dog shelter.

2023.03.29 08:52 Contenthustler612 Would anyone here on the east coast (jersey) be interested in a DDR meetup group for fun and fitness?

I feel like the old scene in my area has died out bad, as all the old arcades/rollerrinks in north jersey with arcades, etc that the events used to be held at when I was in jr high/high school have completely closed. There used to be DDR events back in the day around here in bergen and passaic counties, because we had sportsworld in paramus, skaters world in wayne, fun n games, and even the big arcade that used to be in the center city mall in paterson, etc etc that literally all are closed.
The only thing I have in north nj now is dave and busters and a few amc theaters that have arcades with DDR in them, (not sure if you can play in the arcade if you're not buying tickets to see a movie?)
HOWEVER I also stumbled upon a hidden gem/old small arcade I found within 5 mins from me in downtown passaic, nj that has a new stepmania cab and an old pump it up cab. I went last weekend, I was literally the only one there playing on both machines because no one plays it around here... and for 20$ you can play 60 rounds/songs of stepmania/ddr (each game is 1000 points, 1$=1000 points that you swipe on a card that never expires, and I wasnt even able to use half my points so I'll be using them on my day off tm on wednesday.) Does anyone want to collaborate and create a meetup group with me?

2023.03.29 08:48 FurrowedFury SrA plans on Yelling at Colonel in his Office

I know of a SrA who plans on storming the Wing and Group Colonel's office's.
The story he tells is dramatic and unfair. But also clearly looks past his own failures. This guy has every right to be disgruntled. But he could have taken so many different steps for things to have been better.
His body has been used and abused by the Air Force. Medical and Leadership worked to dismiss him at every turn and nearly screwed him out of his disability. He had to reenlist to continue the VA process.
After a year or so of fighting and back and forths, he finally got his disability squared away at 100%. Finally has his ticket out. He'll seperate in a few weeks.
He wants to storm into their offices and chew them out. I don't think it's wise, in fact its downright idiotic. But he feels entitled to giving them a piece of his mind.
What consequences does he potentially face kicking the hornets nest on his way out the door?

2023.03.29 08:46 SadAndMoist [m4M] A slowburn romance in a world of sea monsters. **Drama, Angst, EMOTIONAL**

Hi. Firstly, let me say that I'm F playing M (bottom) and I am welcome to any gender who is also willing to play M (top). Some people aren't into that and I want to be transparent.
I have a couple ideas that have been burning in the back of my mind lately involving a world akin to the movie Luca, but with a dark twist. Fair warning, I absolutely want to do nsfw, but I want to build up to it slowly. I want to be INVESTED in their relationship, I want our characters to go through angst and drama and awkward confessions, the good stuff! And I'd love to incorporate any ideas you may have into the world as well if it fits.
Before I get to the scenario ideas I had, I wanted to lay out the basics of the world. The creatures involved have been given many names by humans. Sirens, merfolk, sea monsters... but the creatures themselves call their kind "lochni." Humans had only discovered their kind in the 2 decades, and as most humans tend to, the general consensus was the fear of the unknown. They're monsters. Sharp teeth, claws, a strength that surpassed most humans... so humans did what humans did best. They killed.
Not all humans. There were some small countries or isolated island communities that welcomed the merfolk into their population, but for most of the world the hunting of lochni was legal, and in fact, could pay out a pretty penny. Lochni tended to come in bright, vibrant colors, making their skins sought after from everything from loch-skin rugs to designer scale fashion.
Furthermore, with having only recently been discovered, many marine biologists received government backing to study the impending threat. There is always a need. And where there is a need, there is a supplier. Poachers patrol the waters for lost stragglers who'd be easy catches. Big enough ships go bolder, raking their nets through undersea communities and taking whatever is caught. Man. Woman. Child. It all pays.
The oceans arent their only hunting grounds though. Its a known fact that lochni bodies transform once their scales dry, turning human. Most places welcomed the poachers with open arms, encouraging them to find these monsters in disguise living among them at any means necessary. But for those small few communities that lived with the lochni, they weren't welcome.
Idea 1
Human(T) x lochni(b) taboo. Your character is a human. He falls into the water and nearly drowns when he becomes tangled in the loose docking rope towing behind his still sailing boat. My character, a lochni, cuts the rope with his claws, effectively saving YC's life before disappearing back into the ocean. Days later YC is sailing through a tough storm when he somehow manages to see a figure through the rain and churning waves. It's the same lochni that saved him days prior. His unconscious and battered body was draped over jutting rocks in the shallows of a small sand bank. He decides its time to repay the favor and pull him aboard.
After taking him home YC does his best to provide amature medical care. The broken leg his splinted and his torn fins are bandaged down against his arms to hopefully heal. But when the morning after the storm comes, he opens the spare room to find no sea monster in the guest bed, but a human. A feisty, stubborn human who refuses to stay off his broken leg or let him help him in any way shape or form. Suddenly he is in charge of an ungrateful brat who seems dead set on returning to the ocean with a broken leg and damaged fins.
Idea 2
They're both lochnis. Theyve known each other for a long time. Maybe they're friends, maybe they're rivals, but there's definitely nothing romantic between them, at first at least. But after being captured and taken to an experimental facility they grow close in their joint captivity, leaning on each other for support and waiting for the day the humans in their clean white coats slip up and they can escape. But it takes months. Maybe even a year? They've both been put through so much, put through borderline torture to the point they were both weak and submissive to any demands their captors give them. But that's what makes the white coats lower their guard. Together, they escape back into the ocean, but they'd never be able to escape what they've been put through.
But then what? They've grown romantically close, having trauma bonded inside the facility. Unlike humans, male x male relationships were unheard of for their kind. Their whole culture was about raising the next generation. How can you do that with another man? Merging back into their home village they have to decide to either try to forget everything that happened the last few months or keep exploring their feelings in secret.
Feel free to also hit me with a prompt of your own that's related to this world!
Important note: I'm not single, I will not flirt with my RP partners. I'm here to write a fictional story with fictional characters. I'm open to friendships, but not relationships. I hate to make it blunt, but there are a lot of people who STILL cross that line after being told this and have to get hit with the block button.

2023.03.29 08:39 lilacs-bloom Can someone answer a few questions about OSDD for me?

I recently realized that I may be part of a system, but I'm not entirely sure yet. I feel P-DID may be the best descriptor so far (if I actually am a system), but I'm trying to see if a type of OSDD fits me better. I originally thought OSDD-1b might work, but I don't really know if my alters are distinct enough for that.
I also apologize in advance if I end up using the wrong terminology or something. As stated previously, I'm very new to the idea of being a system, and I don't really feel comfortable referring to myself as a plural yet.

  1. Does emotional amnesia qualify as OSDD-1a? I don't have any other types of amnesia, and I (as in the host) am always co-con when another alter begins to front, but afterwards I find that I don't really feel like anything I did while co-con was actually me doing it. It feels more like I'm watching some sort of movie rather than remembering things.
  2. How does one tell if it's actually a different alter fronting vs. just me acting differently than I normally do for no particular reason? I don't think any of my alters really communicate with me when I'm fronting (as in, none of them really have much of an internal voice when not actively co-con), but when I start going co-con, I can feel the presence of someone/something else trying to take over. It's almost like the back of my brain feels weirdly hot/itchy and I can see their face in the back of my head and I start taking on certain mannerisms/speaking/thought patterns of theirs and I/the body start feeling like I'm them instead of me. The most anyone ever gets is around 90% control, but it feels like I'm almost observing them in the way a parent would, ready to step back in if they begin acting out of line in any way. Is that just me acting differently, or is that an alter taking over?
  3. Speaking of me feeling like I'm looking over the body's shoulder to make sure no other alters act out, is that a type of dissociation?
  4. Where does age regression end and OSDD begin? Two of my alters are very childlike (one is around 5-7 years old and one is nearing their thirties yet has the same mindset a young child would have), but I can't tell if this is just age regression or if they're actually alters. They both have distinct personalities, ages, appearances, genders, etc., but it could just be me trying to get back what I lost in my childhood (FYI, I am a transmasc afab and the child alter looks exactly how I looked when I was a child (long hair, feminine gender presentation), if that means anything).
  5. Similar to the last question, could I be confusing OSDD with BPD? I have BPD and have been looking into the differences between them, and it seems a lot of the time identity confusion with BPD has to do with other people, whereas with OSDD, alters switching in and out just happens, and all of the events that have led me to believe I am a system have fallen under the latter category. Could that still just be part of BPD?
  6. I don't think I've ever really switched around other people. It mainly happens on my own. Could that be a sign that this is all just me jumping to conclusions, or is it possible that the other alters just don't feel comfortable fronting when I'm around others?
  7. What really is an inner world and is it a requirement to have one? Because I definitely don't and I'm wondering if that's a sign this is all just me jumping to conclusions.
  8. (Last question, I'm sorry that this is so long) Is there a certain requirement for what alters a person can have or what type of alters they need to have? It seems that the main ones I've noticed recently are the little and the nearly-thirty-year-old that I mentioned earlier. I do think that there might be more that I haven't realized exist yet, as I just started paying attention to all of this recently, but as of right now it feels like there's only us three and maybe one to two more. Is that a sign hinting towards this just being a complicated case of age regression?

I think that's all the questions I have for now.
I'd also like to mention that I sort of feel the almost-thirty-year-old alter coming to right now. It's becoming harder to stay focused and it sort of feels like someone is watching over my shoulder, and I'm also starting to stim and twitch a lot (something I've noticed happens a lot more when she's around). I'm also getting that itchy hot brain feeling and I kind of have a headache. I'm starting to notice that she shows up pretty much every time I think about potentially being a system.

2023.03.29 08:23 AndrewS702 Having doubts about my type rn, can anyone discern anything based off of this questionnaire I did over a month ago?

  1. 𝗪𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝘁𝘆𝗽𝗲(𝘀) 𝗱𝗼 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝘂𝘀𝘂𝗮𝗹𝗹𝘆 𝘀𝗰𝗼𝗿𝗲 𝗮𝘀 𝗼𝗻 𝘁𝗲𝘀𝘁𝘀? So, let's start off with 16 Personalities. My very first result I can't remember what it was, but I feel like I had a purple avatar (I'm leaning towards INTP, hell maybe even INTJ) and can't remember if I was Turbulent or Assertive, but I was very likely Turbulent. Second time I took it I was INFP-T, and then a few more times still INFP-T. Few months later I got INTP-T. And when I take it nowadays I end up getting INFJ-T and INTP-T more. INTJ-T a few times though, INFJ-A and INTP-A once. Sakinorva I get INFJ and INTJ, Michael Caloz INFP and recently INTP, Keys2Cognition INFP and ISFJ, MistypeInvestigator I usually get INFP, but last time I did it I got INTP, IDRLabs usually INTJ or INFJ, but last time I took the test I got ISTJ or ISFJ with leading Si.
  2. 𝗬𝗼𝘂 𝗮𝗿𝗲 𝗼𝗻 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗰𝗹𝗼𝗰𝗸 𝘁𝗼 𝗳𝗶𝘅 𝘀𝗼𝗺𝗲𝘁𝗵𝗶𝗻𝗴, 𝗮 𝗳𝗿𝗶𝗲𝗻𝗱 𝗼𝗳 𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿𝘀 𝘀𝗶𝘁𝘀 𝗯𝗲𝘀𝗶𝗱𝗲 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗴𝗶𝘃𝗲𝘀 𝗮 𝗹𝗼𝘁 𝗼𝗳 𝗶𝗻𝘁𝗲𝗿𝗲𝘀𝘁𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗶𝗱𝗲𝗮𝘀, 𝗻𝗼𝗻𝗲 𝗼𝗳 𝘁𝗵𝗲𝗺 𝗮𝗰𝘁𝘂𝗮𝗹𝗹𝘆 𝗵𝗲𝗹𝗽 𝗼𝗿 𝗮𝗿𝗲 𝗿𝗲𝗹𝗮𝘁𝗲𝗱 𝘁𝗼 𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝘀𝗶𝘁𝘂𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻, 𝗯𝘂𝘁 𝘁𝗵𝗲𝘆 𝗮𝗿𝗲 𝘀𝘁𝗶𝗹𝗹 𝘀𝗼𝗺𝗲𝘁𝗵𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗳𝗶𝗻𝗱 𝗶𝗻𝘁𝗲𝗿𝗲𝘀𝘁𝗶𝗻𝗴. 𝗪𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗶𝘀 𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗿𝗲𝗮𝗰𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻? 𝗪𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗱𝗼 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝘀𝗮𝘆? 𝗪𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗱𝗼 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗱𝗼? 𝗪𝗵𝗮𝘁'𝘀 𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝘁𝗿𝗮𝗶𝗻 𝗼𝗳 𝘁𝗵𝗼𝘂𝗴𝗵𝘁? I would definitely talk about the interesting ideas, because I'd say I'm pretty open to others thoughts and opinions on things. Even though I'd be pretty anxious to get the thing that needs fixing done on time, my heart would probably be racing but still willing to talk to the person hearing their ideas out.
  3. 𝗪𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗮𝗿𝗲 𝘀𝗼𝗺𝗲 𝗼𝗳 𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗺𝗼𝘀𝘁 𝗶𝗺𝗽𝗼𝗿𝘁𝗮𝗻𝘁 𝘃𝗮𝗹𝘂𝗲𝘀? My most important values are my personal space, my family, friends, video games, technology, movies, TV shows, the internet, my car, food, drinks, and my college education.
  4. 𝗬𝗼𝘂 𝗮𝗿𝗲 𝗶𝗻 𝗮 𝗰𝗮𝗿 𝘄𝗶𝘁𝗵 𝘀𝗼𝗺𝗲 𝗼𝘁𝗵𝗲𝗿 𝗽𝗲𝗼𝗽𝗹𝗲, 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗽𝗲𝗼𝗽𝗹𝗲 𝗶𝗻 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗰𝗮𝗿 𝗮𝗿𝗲 𝘁𝗮𝗹𝗸𝗶𝗻𝗴. 𝗦𝗼𝗺𝗲𝗼𝗻𝗲 𝗺𝗮𝗸𝗲𝘀 𝗮 𝗰𝗹𝗮𝗶𝗺 𝘁𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝘀𝗲𝗲 𝗮𝘀 𝗶𝗺𝗺𝗼𝗿𝗮𝗹/𝗿𝘂𝗱𝗲/𝗰𝗿𝘂𝗲𝗹. 𝗪𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗶𝘀 𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗶𝗻𝘄𝗮𝗿𝗱 𝗿𝗲𝗮𝗰𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻? 𝗪𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗱𝗼 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝘁𝗵𝗶𝗻𝗸? 𝗪𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗱𝗼 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝘀𝗮𝘆? I'd most likely be quieter, wouldn't call them out directly for it, but give slight hints of why I'd disagree. I wouldn't flip out on the person because of it even if it would make me angry, but I would text my other friends after the car ride reflecting on why that one person said something like that.
  5. 𝗪𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗮𝗰𝘁𝗶𝘃𝗶𝘁𝗶𝗲𝘀 𝗲𝗻𝗲𝗿𝗴𝗶𝘇𝗲𝘀 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗺𝗼𝘀𝘁? 𝗪𝗵𝘆? I'm energized by video games like Call of Duty, Fortnite, and Overwatch. I tend to be a bit more competitive when it comes to online games like that, and I value my performance in them. Same with when I used to play Tennis and Bowling. When I ride my Peloton bike, I prefer doing a lot of work in a short amount of time, rather than a long time. On the social aspect, I'm energized by hanging out with my friends sitting at a bonfire, engaging in intellectual/controversial conversations or conversations that about things that we're interested in. When I play Quiplash with my friends, I'm engaged by all the prompts and try to come up with the funniest/most shocking answer to get my friends to die laughing and vote for it.
  6. 𝗪𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗮𝗰𝘁𝗶𝘃𝗶𝘁𝗶𝗲𝘀 𝗱𝗿𝗮𝗶𝗻𝘀 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗺𝗼𝘀𝘁? 𝗪𝗵𝘆? Very long physical activities, like if I were constantly playing a sport, walking, or biking for hours I'd feel so drained. I also can get drained by certain social situations, like I never want to stay long at things or be going out to different places all the time. I prefer being in one place with them.
  7. 𝗗𝗼 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗯𝗲𝗹𝗶𝗲𝘃𝗲 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗮𝗿𝗲 𝗶𝗻𝘁𝗿𝗼𝘃𝗲𝗿𝘁𝗲𝗱 𝗼𝗿 𝗲𝘅𝘁𝗿𝗮𝘃𝗲𝗿𝘁𝗲𝗱? 𝗪𝗵𝘆 𝗱𝗼 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗯𝗲𝗹𝗶𝗲𝘃𝗲 𝘁𝗵𝗮𝘁? (𝗣𝗹𝗲𝗮𝘀𝗲 𝗯𝗲 𝗮𝘀 𝗱𝗲𝘁𝗮𝗶𝗹𝗲𝗱 𝗮𝘀 𝗽𝗼𝘀𝘀𝗶𝗯𝗹𝗲) I'm definitely more introverted. I'm a very reserved guy, quiet, and shy person. Growing up as an only child was a pretty big part of this, and meeting new people was tough since it takes a lot of time for certain people to grow on me until I'm fairly comfortable with them. In school, looking back I thought I was just selectively mute. I remember just not saying a single word to people up until the 3rd grade. One of my best friends/neighbor (ENFP on 16P, could still be ENFP or ENTP) we'd get on the bus and it was weird that I just don't think I said anything until I got home, which is when I was talkative. I'd very much rather stay at home than going out everyday socializing, potentially engaging in bad behaviors. I never went to parties, American football games (being considerate of the international people here so there's no confusion :) ). My friends tried to get me to go one and wasn't sure, but once they started pressuring me I refused.
  8. 𝗣𝗹𝗲𝗮𝘀𝗲 𝗱𝗲𝘀𝗰𝗿𝗶𝗯𝗲 𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿𝘀𝗲𝗹𝗳, 𝘄𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗱𝗼 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝘀𝗲𝗲 𝗮𝘀 𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗴𝗿𝗲𝗮𝘁𝗲𝘀𝘁 𝘀𝘁𝗿𝗲𝗻𝗴𝘁𝗵𝘀 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝘄𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗱𝗼 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝘀𝗲𝗲 𝗮𝘀 𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗴𝗿𝗲𝗮𝘁𝗲𝘀𝘁 𝘄𝗲𝗮𝗸𝗻𝗲𝘀𝘀𝗲𝘀? My greatest strengths are just being nice and kind towards others, being a loyal friend, good in emergencies, can be goal-oriented, and sensitive to others feelings. My weaknesses are that I can be passive-aggressive, too quiet, undisciplined (as far as school work ethic goes, I'm disciplined in my behavior), in my head a lot not focusing on what's infront of me too much, bottling up emotions, avoidant, feeling like I can't facing my problems, a bit stubborn at times, can be unmotivated, and wasting time alot with my interests when I should be doing something productive.
  9. 𝗣𝗹𝗲𝗮𝘀𝗲 𝗱𝗲𝘀𝗰𝗿𝗶𝗯𝗲 𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿𝘀𝗲𝗹𝗳 𝘄𝗵𝗲𝗻 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗮𝗿𝗲 𝗳𝗲𝗲𝗹𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝘀𝘁𝗿𝗲𝘀𝘀𝗲𝗱. 𝗛𝗼𝘄 𝗱𝗼 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗮𝗰𝘁 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝘄𝗵𝘆? 𝗥𝗲𝗮𝗹 𝗹𝗶𝗳𝗲 𝗲𝘅𝗽𝗲𝗿𝗶𝗲𝗻𝗰𝗲𝘀 𝗮𝗿𝗲 𝘄𝗲𝗹𝗰𝗼𝗺𝗲. I'd say there's a few stages of my stress. I'm usually at Stage 1 or 2, which is not outwardly showing it but internally I can feel very stressed/frustrated. Stage 2 is more panic, and I start to show it more. Stage 3 I start completely panicking, getting frustrated/more emotional especially if I'm right at a deadline and I need a certain grade to maintain good numbers. Stage 4 (doesn't happen very often) I'll have a breakdown of frustration and starting hitting things in anger and crying after.
  10. 𝗪𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗶𝘀 𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿 "𝘀𝗼𝗳𝘁 𝘀𝗽𝗼𝘁"? I have a soft spot for things I'm nostalgic about. I love going back to watching old ROBLOX videos from when I played consistently, and when I watched videos of before I started playing on Youtube. I love looking back on Google Earth of places I'm familiar with and try to go back in time as far as possible to see how different things were. Like noticing old buildings that aren't there anymore, cars, little details. And I love seeing old yearbook pictures of the schools I went to, it shows a different time, where I was younger or not even born, and what would be to come into the future where I actually attended those places.
  11. 𝗪𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗮𝗿𝗲 𝗺𝗼𝘀𝘁 𝗼𝗳 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗶𝗱𝗲𝗮𝘀/𝘁𝗵𝗼𝘂𝗴𝗵𝘁𝘀 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗴𝗲𝘁 𝗴𝗲𝗻𝗲𝗿𝗮𝗹𝗹𝘆 𝗰𝗲𝗻𝘁𝗲𝗿𝗲𝗱 𝗮𝗿𝗼𝘂𝗻𝗱 (𝘁𝗿𝘆 𝘁𝗼 𝗲𝘅𝗽𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗮𝗻𝘀𝘄𝗲𝗿𝘀 𝗮𝘀 𝗺𝘂𝗰𝗵 𝗮𝘀 𝗽𝗼𝘀𝘀𝗶𝗯𝗹𝗲)? My thoughts and ideas that I have are mostly centered around technology. Like for example, I love playing Xbox, and I would love if Microsoft got their hands onto the portable console market, like pack all of the power of a Series S into a device that I can hold in my hands, and play it on the go if I'm at college or somewhere else. I hope they do a portable console eventually, it'll literally change everything.
  12. 𝗪𝗵𝗮𝘁'𝘀 𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗼𝗽𝗶𝗻𝗶𝗼𝗻 𝗼𝗳 𝗴𝗲𝘁𝘁𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗳𝗿𝗲𝗾𝘂𝗲𝗻𝘁 𝗳𝗲𝗲𝗱𝗯𝗮𝗰𝗸 𝗼𝗻 𝘄𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗱𝗼? (𝗦𝗼𝗺𝗲𝗼𝗻𝗲 𝗽𝗼𝗶𝗻𝘁𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗼𝘂𝘁 𝘄𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗶𝘀 𝗴𝗼𝗼𝗱, 𝘄𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗶𝘀 𝗯𝗮𝗱, 𝘄𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗵𝗼𝘄 𝘁𝗼 𝗶𝗺𝗽𝗿𝗼𝘃𝗲) 𝗜𝘀 𝘁𝗵𝗲𝗿𝗲 𝗮 𝗹𝗶𝗺𝗶𝘁 𝘁𝗼 𝗵𝗼𝘄 𝗼𝗳𝘁𝗲𝗻 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝘄𝗮𝗻𝘁 𝗳𝗲𝗲𝗱𝗯𝗮𝗰𝗸? 𝗜𝗳 𝘀𝗼, 𝘄𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗶𝘀 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗹𝗶𝗺𝗶𝘁? Feedback can make me very anxious, because if it's a bit harsh it'll put me off of something, but I feel like harshness is necessary because it's the truth. And I rather someone tell me the full truth about something so I can have clarity, and refer back to it for future feedback, and also it feels REAL. None of that sugarcoat crap to make me feel better and not learn anything from it.
  13. 𝗪𝗵𝗮𝘁'𝘀 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗯𝗲𝘀𝘁 𝗮𝗱𝘃𝗶𝗰𝗲 𝘆𝗼𝘂'𝘃𝗲 𝗲𝘃𝗲𝗿 𝗴𝗼𝘁? 𝗔𝗻𝗱 𝘄𝗵𝘆? Treat others the way you'd like to be treated. I pretty much like everything and everyone to be fair, no one higher above the other or different emotional things weighing things down.
  14. 𝗪𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗮𝗹𝘄𝗮𝘆𝘀 𝘄𝗮𝗻𝘁𝗲𝗱 𝘁𝗼 𝗵𝗲𝗮𝗿 𝗳𝗿𝗼𝗺 𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗽𝗮𝗿𝗲𝗻𝘁𝘀? 𝗪𝗵𝘆? 𝗘𝗹𝗮𝗯𝗼𝗿𝗮𝘁𝗲 There's not really anything that I wanted to hear from them exactly. But I just definitely want to maintain the good relationship that I have with them for as long they live.
𝟭𝟱. 𝗛𝗼𝘄 𝗱𝗼 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗽𝗲𝗿𝗰𝗲𝗶𝘃𝗲 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝘄𝗼𝗿𝗹𝗱? I perceive the world as something that evolves through time. Technology is rapidly advancing, giving advantages to people, new things are being discovered, for the benefit, or worse for the world. So many things can change over time, like I said with Google Earth I love comparing how things are now compared to back then. It shows me how much civilization has evolved, and I love thinking about how things will look in the near and far future.

2023.03.29 08:09 BedroomOk8200 Cool Lighting Technique I Noticed

Cool Lighting Technique I Noticed
I saw the movie recently when it was available in the theater near me and I noticed that they were frequently using the lighting technique where they constantly revolve the main light source on the subject's face, changing how the face of the subject looks drastically. For reference, see the video linked.
In the movie, it was used for Michelle Yeoh's character, Evelyn, seemingly whenever they were showing montages of quick universe glimpses. It seems to me that the changing look effect that this technique had on faces was used to emphasize the different versions of Evelyn in the different universes shown.
Anyways, besides sharing it just because I thought it was cool, I wanted to know:
-is there a formal name for this technique? -has it been used before in any other popular movies?
I'm no film buff, so if it's actually a common technique that I just never noticed before, I wouldn't be surprised, but I just remember seeing this video on Youtube way back and I was just amazed to see it explicitly used here.

Universal Pictures! Here are options for downloading or watching Cocaine Bear streaming the full movie online for free on 123movies & Reddit, including where to watch the anticipated Horror movie at home. Cocaine Bear 2023 available to stream? Is watching Cocaine Bear on Disney Plus, HBO Max, Netflix or Amazon Prime? Yes, we have found an authentic streaming option/service.

Watch Now: Cocaine Bear Full Movie Online Free

Tired of sequels and remakes? Are you or a loved one experiencing franchise fatigue? Universal Pictures has lined up an antidote for you. The company looks to blow fresh air into theaters with Cocaine Bear, a bonkers comedy/action-thriller starring Keri Russell; the late, great Ray Liotta; and a coked-up, bloodthirsty black bear. Read our Cocaine Bear review for more info.

Yet, a true story is exactly what inspired the next film from filmmaker Elizabeth Banks, Cocaine Bear (2023), which tells the very real story of, you guessed it, a black bear under the influence of cocaine. Well, to be perfectly honest, the inciting incident and namesake of the film is seemingly the only true event to be seen, originating from an event where a wild Georgian bear helped itself to a large serving of smuggled cocaine when a plane crashed in the state in 1985. The horrific and bloody rampage that the bear embarks on for the film adaptation is fictional, but it also looks like a hell of an absurd good time.

Where can you watch Cocaine Bear? Is it on Netflix? What about HBO Max? Here’s everything we know about the upcoming movie:

Cocaine Bear is in theaters everywhere this weekend. If you're wondering how and where you can watch it yourself, take a look at the information below.

What Is the Release Date for Cocaine Bear?
Moviegoers everywhere shall be able to see a mammal with a drug addiction wreak havoc and destruction on the state of Georgia when Cocaine Bear premieres exclusively in theaters on Friday, February 24th, 2023.

An oddball group of cops, criminals, tourists and teens converges in a Georgia forest after a 500-pound black bear ingests a large amount of cocaine and goes on a drug-fueled rampage. Streaming on Roku.

Is Cocaine Bear Being Released on Streaming?
Audiences who wish to learn just exactly how one of nature's apex predators ingested at least a kilo of an illicit substance will have to find a theater near them as that's the place where Cocaine Bear will be available once it premieres later this upcoming February. No announcements in regard to if and when Cocaine Bear will receive a streaming release have not yet been made, but Peacock seems to be a likely streaming home for the dark comedy given it's a production of Universal Pictures.

Cocaine Bear is not currently available to stream online, though it will eventually be released on Peacock. Cocaine Bear distributor Universal Pictures cut a deal with Peacock in 2021 to have all of its movies come to the streaming service within four months of their theatrical debuts. This would put Cocaine Bear's streaming debut sometime before June 24.

Where to Watch Cocaine Bear Online Free?
As of now, the only way to watch Cocaine Bear is to head to a theater when it releases on Friday, Feb. 3. You can find a local showing on Fandango. Otherwise, you’ll just have to wait for it to become available to rent or buy on digital platforms like Vudu, Amazon, Apple and YouTube, or become available to stream on Peacock. Read on for more information.

Watch Now: Cocaine Bear Full Movie Online Free

Following its release in theaters, the film will be available to stream on Peacock. Expect the movie to hit the streamer 45 days after its theatrical run, which should be sometime in December.

Will Cocaine Bear be on Netflix?
Unfortunately, Cocaine Bear isn’t available to stream on Netflix. The romantic comedy isn’t included in the lineup of Netflix movies, which includes a vast number of rom-coms featuring some of our favorite actors and actresses.

If you want to watch Julia Roberts movies on Netflix, check out Ben Is Back, August: Osage County, Steel Magnolias, and Runaway Bride. Roberts always appeared in Ocean’s Eleven and Ocean’s Twelve with her Cocaine Bear co-star George Clooney, and both movies are currently streaming on Netflix as of October 2023.

Will Cocaine Bear Available On Peacock?
While a streaming release date has not yet been announced for Cocaine Bear, we can estimate when it could head to Peacock based on another Universal Pictures movie.

Violent Night, which hit theaters on Dec. 2, became available to stream on Peacock on Jan. 20 — a little over 45 days after its theatrical release. If Cocaine Bear follows the same pattern, it could make its way to the platform by mid-April. However, other movies like Nope took more than 100 days, so it’s best to take this estimate with a grain of salt.

Will Cocaine Bear Streaming On HBO Max?
No, Cocaine Bear will not be on HBO Max since it’s not a Warner Bros. movie. While the company previously released its movies on HBO Max and in theaters on the same day, they have since stopped and have implemented a 45-day window between the theatrical release and streaming release.

What Is Cocaine Bear About?
Considering the enormous amount of writing talent that swims in our worldwide creative lake it can often be surprising when, beyond documentaries, we learn of a particular tale being true. However, sometimes the best and most ludicrous stories can only be the work of reality, and Cocaine Bear is one such narrative. Of course, exact details regarding the originality of the plot are yet to be seen but, with a true story as incredible as this one, it would be fair to suggest the writers may stay true to life.

Based on a true story, Cocaine Bear is a dark comedy action-thriller about a rampaging bear high on cocaine. Here's the official synopsis from Universal:

Inspired by the 1985 true story of a drug runner's plane crash, missing cocaine, and the black bear that ate it, this wild thriller finds an oddball group of cops, criminals, tourists and teens converging in a Georgia forest where a 500-pound apex predator has ingested a staggering amount of cocaine and gone on a coke-fueled rampage for more blow and blood.

There have been plenty of wild news stories over the years — but the one behind Cocaine Bear might just take the cake.

Directed by Elizabeth Banks, Cocaine Bear is loosely based on the true story of a bear that ingested a duffel bag full of cocaine. While we aren’t sure what exactly happened leading up to the animal’s death in real life, this dark comedy takes creative liberty in having the coked-out bear embark on a violent rampage.

Cocaine Bear is an action-packed gory ride based on an incredible true story (though very heavily dramatized here). It’s obvious this movie is only for adults, which means parents will need to get a baby sitter to watch it this weekend. That is, unless Cocaine Bear is available online. Is it streaming on HBO Max? If not, where can you watch the movie from home?

Where can you watch Cocaine Bear? Is it on Netflix? What about HBO Max? Cocaine Bear will be in theaters beginning February 24. If you're wondering how and where you can watch it yourself, take a look at the information below.

When Is Cocaine Bear's Release Date?

When deciding how to release a film, production companies have a choice. They can either stagger the release so that, geographically, it takes time to reach its universal audience, or they can release it on one date worldwide. Thankfully, Universal Pictures has chosen to release the movie worldwide in one day. This date is February 24, 2023, which is coming around very quickly. The film will also be hitting theaters, with a story of this magnitude definitely needing to be seen on the big screen.

No, Cocaine Bear will not be available on Netflix — at least not anytime soon, since it will be heading straight to Peacock after its theatrical release. In the meantime, you’ll just have to wait for it to become available on the NBCUniversal-owned streaming platform.

Is Cocaine Bear Available On Hulu?

Viewers are saying that they want to view the new movie Cocaine Bear on Hulu. Unfortunately, this is not possible since Hulu currently does not offer any of the free episodes of this series streaming at this time. It will be exclusive to the MTV channel, which you get by subscribing to cable or satellite TV services. You will not be able to watch it on Hulu or any other free streaming service.

2023.03.29 07:41 h0yitsdom Mailman refusing to deliver mail due for nearly a year after moving into house

Bought a house in socal back in May 2022, did change of address and everything the following month. We were receiving mail without fault for about a month before we noticed it was a week of no mail. My wife stopped our mailman leaving our cul-de-sac and he told her that we need to move the mailbox (located next to front door where it was prior to us purchasing house and was never touched) and that we should of got a notice in the mail...he never delivered this. We researched this and could not find a specific policy stating we HAVE to move mailbox (we are renovating and plan to eventually add a fence and relocate mailbox to curb years down the road), we confirmed this by visiting our local post office where the employee confirmed no issues with our mailbox and he would discuss with mailman.
We submit a file for a 'case' and they research it which leads to us getting confirmation from the local post office that we are OK and should be getting mail delivered...weeks go by and no mail...submit case again and next step is them telling us we will get a specific mail delivery person to deliver the mail while they look into this matter. Result is a random mailman delivering mail only to my house sporadically for a few weeks and then mail delivery stops again...
Open another case via USPS website resulting in them 'confirming' that mail is being delivered by my streets normal mailman...completely false. He still has never walked to my door to deliver mail, I am still sporadically receiving bundles of mail at a time from a separate carrier including packages. I now open my 3rd case (This is now October 2022), and demand to speak with the local postmaster (Henry Roberson). I show him pictures of my house listing and current pictures of the house showing the mailbox has never moved, I do not have a dog, there has never been any impeding of the doorway for the mail carrier. He assures me we are correct, and he will absolutely speak with mail carrier to ensure we will be getting our mail delivered the very next day. The next mail...and the next week no mail or packages...despite seeing via Informed Delivery (this entire time from change of address) that mail was to be delivered.
I go back into the post office to speak with the Post Master again and he assures me he spoke with the carrier but says he will ensure the manager of carriers/routes (not sure of specific title) will have someone deliver our mail. Fast forward a few weeks, I am outside in my driveway and I get approached by USPS Federal Investigators, unbeknownst to me I tell them my side of the story and how I have not gotten any mail delivered etc...only for them to say "we are actually here to investigate a threat made to the carrier". Mind you, I have never spoken to the carrier or been within 10 feet of the carrier since I've moved into my house. He claimed I threatened him, only after months of me complaining to the USPS of not getting mail delivered. I provide ring footage and receipts from the day I threatened him to the inspectors, confirming I was nearly 30 minutes away from my house at the time he said I threatened him.
A few more weeks of sporadic mail delivery, I open my 4th case (November 2022), and continue to sporadically receive mail from random carriers throughout the following months. I have continued to have this issue, along with packages being delivered late due to my sporadic delivery schedule. USPS tracking items are continuing to be updated with "Held at customer request", I have received medicine from the VA late, bills within days of due dates.

I am looking for any advice on how to fix this issue, I just want my mail delivered. Today one of my neighbors walked over a piece of my mail that was delivered by the normal carrier to their house...
So far I have:
Spoken with post master several times
Spoken with USPS Postal Inspector
Local Consumer Affairs Office (told me to speak to local congressman??)
Sent letter to local congressman
Still not getting mail delivered as scheduled to my home coming up on nearly a year...
All internet research says "postmaster can handle it" but that has absolutely not been the case.

Edit: Picture of my mailbox/driveway/approach

2023.03.29 07:20 vitagrl Accidentally devastated myself by watching 'The Whale'

I didn't know anything about the movie except it was good. I presumed it was another "sad obese man/woman decides to get it together and lose weight" and after another crappy day, I decided to go see it. It completely devastated me. I sat in the theater sobbing and making noises that sounded like I was an escaped mental patient. Thankfully I was the only one in the theater when the credits were rolling. I somehow managed to collect myself for a second and stumbled towards the exit with tears blurring my vision. I hid my face and hurried out of the theater and cried some more in the car. I related to him so much, and the depiction of eating for comfort (but also knowing it will kill you and not really caring...the part where he ate CHOCOLATE after seeing his blood pressure...been there) was too real. And he fucking died. His last days were people laughing at him and then he died.
I'm just completely devastated. I've been depressed for a long time, obviously. You don't get to be super obese by being happy, I'm sorry, but you don't. I am not bedbound and go out a lot mostly to do errands for my elderly parents that I still live with. Half the time I go out, I get some man sneering at me and making loud comments. Or a woman pointing at me to her friend and laughing. My parents don't believe me, but it happens a lot. I went to law school and graduated top of my class, but never found a law-related job and I have very bad anxiety so I never tried to do anything on my own. So I work retail with a bunch of shitty people who I thought were my friends and was happy to be around...until the day(s) I was around the corner and heard them laughing about how fat I am and how nobody would ever "do me" (like I care, but still, hurts). They all smile to my face and tell me about the latest video game news or whatever and I just hate them but smile too like a big fat moron. Like I've always been. A doormat. A big fat doormat.
I daydream a lot about a life I've always wanted. I daydream about working in cartoons and being a boss that is surrounded by funny, nerdy people. I daydream about having lots of money and always helping animal shelters with that money. But after 'The Whale,' I've just come to hate them now. It's unrealistic, and I'm just going to be laughed at by horrible people until I die too.
I have diabetes and I was doing well, losing weight and eating healthy. But during Christmas, a time where a bunch of people I loved all died, I started going back to McDonalds and eating all the crap that I actually hate to eat as I'm eating it, but I crazily crave it all the time. My doc said my blood sugar went back up and I didn't want to tell her "I don't care anymore. WHat's the point of life? It's terrible and stupid and boring" like I was thinking and still think.
I'm the female 'Whale' and I know I should change and life might get a little better, but will it actually? Going to have to work all my life. Going to have to watch my only friends, my parents, die slow painful deaths. Going to have to go out and be bullied by strangers for every little thing because even if I lost weight, I'm still "ugly," "don't smile," "too quiet" or "too hairy." All the complaints I got when I was skinny in high school. I'll never win, I'll never fit in, so why bother? That movie wrecked me. I have no hope now.
