2020.12.03 01:12 mallardsack Bizarre 1950’s Action/Thriller Dream

Let me preface this by saying I (18f) have always had very vivid dreams. This one took place just this morning, and I immediately had to write it down because of the bizarreness of it. If anyone else has batshit crazy dreams like this, please let me know!
This dream was told from the viewpoints of two different girls, in a tv show like episode with cut scenes. For complexities sake I will name the girls.
Betty: the wealthy daughter of a businessman Alice: the homeless cousin of Betty
Story 1: Betty Basically I was the teenage daughter of a wealthy but cold hearted and stern businessman. I was dating a “negro” boy as my father referred to him as, named John. We were upstairs in our fancy collectors room filled with cars, furniture, and other rich things. As we were getting handsy, my father comes upstairs and sees us and goes into a fit of rage that his daughter would partake in such activities with a “negro” boy, he calls the cops and says I was raped. It was a passionate and teary eyed goodbye as we wait for the police to arrive. He writes me a mysterious note on the back of a postcard and hands it to me just as he’s taken away by the police. Heartbroken and angered, I vow to disown my father and distance myself from the family name. I also promise that one day I will see John again, no matter what it took. I run away, out of the house, as fast as I can. Story Two: Alice I am now a homeless teen girl who is living in my uncle’s (not the wealthy businessman) fancy women’s clothing store. It’s never shown directly (thank god) but it is heavily insinuated that I had been living in one the dressing rooms of the store since I was a young girl and my uncle had sexually abused me from the beginning. I finally get fed up and leave the store, only to see two girls outside the store carrying suitcases and getting ready to take my place and live in the store. I fly into a rage, vowing to never allow my uncle to hurt another girl again. I take the young girls away with me. Story 3: Betty I am now in a classic car with my rich fancy mother who is apparently separated, but not divorced, from my rich father. We’re driving down an extremely narrow one way road made of metal beams sitting on top of water, almost like a bridge. Suddenly we see the tracks have broken up ahead. Unable to stop, we fly off the road and I begin to cry, telling my mother I love her dearly. My thoughts drift towards John, realizing I will never see him again. We go flying through the air before gently crashing through the water, only to find out that the water was a tiny stream that was only 2 feet deep. The car is wrecked beyond repair, but we miraculously come out of the crash unharmed. Story 4: Alice I am now wandering through the streets of an old cobble stone town in which the whole dream is set. It’s beautiful, with brightly colored store fronts and beautiful architecture. The two girls are nowhere to be found, but as I am wandering, I am approached by an older man offering me a job. He tells me that he needs someone to break into the massive elaborate crayola factory just outside of town. I am to steal as many boxes of crayons as possible, burn the place down, then rush away in the getaway car. As a young girl who has been exploited and abused throughout my life, I am wary, but desperate. I agree, and he tells me that under no circumstances can I take anything other then merchandise from the factory. This is heavily emphasized. The scene cuts to a dark dimly road at dusk with me getting out of the car, being once again reminded not to grab anything besides what I was instructed too. I nod and walk through the elaborate gates of the factory. Everything is so colorful, so childlike. As I make my way up the winding path I begin to weep, realizing I was stripped of my childhood at such a young age and was never able to experience the innocence of children. I make it to the factory, only to find that it doubles as a mini crayon themed amusement park. The colorful factory is gorgeous, with stained glass windows and many eye catching amenities. I break into the factory through a vent, and begin piling up loads of merchandise into boxes. I make my way into this one particularly odd area, a sort of drive up window where people can purchase art supplies without leaving their cars. This is where shit gets real. I discover two cats sitting in a bed, and suddenly a flood of forgotten childhood memories is remembered. I now realize that these were my childhood kittens, forgotten due to me being taken away from my family by a secret organization that tested on children (Very mkultra esque or stranger things eleven vibes if I might add). I become furious, realizing that once again a part of me was taken away and exploited by rich old men. I drop the box of merchandise, and instead pick up my childhood cats and run out with them in a box. I run over to the amusement park, where I somehow run into my cousin Betty. As it turned out, this was her father’s factory and amusement park. A dramatic conversation happens as we walk through a crayon themed fun house, exchanging stories of heartbreak and trauma. We decide to join forces, and begin dousing both the factory and amusement park in gasoline. We watch as the place erupts into a greenish hellfire, then both walk back to the getaway car. The old man becomes enraged upon seeing both my cousin and the cats, telling me this is exactly why I was supposed to grab nothing else but merchandise. I realize this man wasn’t a stranger, and somehow knew me, because why else would he get so mad about me discovering both of these? I attack him as my cousin watches, killing him and leaving his body on the road as we drive away. Story 5: Betty It is a new day, and I am walking through the cobble stone streets on my way back to my fathers with Alice nowhere in sight. I enter the house, and find both my father and my uncle (the store owner) in the parlor. I act passive and submissive, apologizing for running away and begging my father for forgiveness and promising to do as he asks from then on. He is delighted, believing that I have come to my senses. He informs me that John was murdered while in jail. I show no emotion, nodding and walking to my room. There, I am overcome with grief, sobbing quietly into my pillow. A few days seemingly go by in the house, both men still there. This is when my final act of revenge takes place. I find a pistol in the upstairs room where John was taken away. I go into the parlor where both men are, and begin screaming madly, telling them to get on their fucking knees or I’ll blow their brains out. I go into my final monologue, basically taking a verbal shit on both their lives and telling them what absolute pieces of cunt bags they are. I say “I would shoot you both in your greedy money bag ballsacks, but I’m not like you two. I will be different.” I begin to leave the room, but stop at the door of the parlor. Turning back around, I end by saying “after this, motherfuckers” and shoot them both dead. I stow the gun in my purse and leave the house. Story 6: Betty A few weeks go by, and I am now packing my bags with my mother, getting ready to move across country and start a new life. As I pack my things, I come across the post card from John. I stare at the image on the front, a simple one with the words “Greetings from New York” written on it. Holding it gently, I flip it over, and read his message. “January 4th, 2020. We will be 90 years old, I’ll love you until my last dying breath. We will see each other again one day.”

Album of the Year 2020: Car Seat Headrest - Making a Door Less Open
Hello everyone and welcome to Day 2 of the indieheads Album of the Year 2020 Write-Up Series where the users of indieheads go in-depth on their favorite albums of the year throughout the duration of December. Up today, series founder u/ReconEG talks Car Seat Headrest’s polarizing Making A Door Less Open.
May 1st, 2020 - Matador
Listen:
Bandcamp
Spotify
Apple Music
Background
The time period between Car Seat Headrest’s Matador debut, Teens of Style, in 2015 and the 2018 remake of Twin Fantasy was a massive, massive breakthrough period for the band. Starting off as a solo project of sorts by founder Will Toledo, the band had expanded its lineup to seven members for the Twin Fantasy tour, taking songs Toledo recorded initially in his car and filling them out to play in bigger and bigger venues, peaking around February 2019 when the band opened for Interpol at Madison Square Garden.
Behind the scenes though, Toledo was year 3 into writing the follow-up to Teens of Denial and Twin Fantasy, sporadically entering the studio between one elongated tour after another to work these ideas out with his core lineup of drummer Andrew Katz, guitarist Ethan Ives, and bassist Seth Dalby, which was solidified in 2016 after the recording of Teens of Denial. While the band was praised for its resemblance to indie royalty acts of the 90s and early 2000s, they were all getting kind of sick of making music in that vein, all clearly pushing for something different.
It was Katz especially that Toledo confided in as a collaborator, as seeing him work on his 1 Trait Danger project opened up new songwriting possibilities, taking these songs he was writing and making them work around Katz expertise in EDM mixing. While early versions of the songs and ideas that would make their way into this follow-up album were more indebted to early new-wave than anything else, things would drastically shift by mid to late 2019 when they entered the studio proper to record this album, as at this point Toledo began to devise the album as a collaboration with 1 Trait Danger, with Toledo writing the songs as the gas-mask-wearing character Trait.
The sessions concluded in October, but Toledo and the band kept tweaking and working on the album, even after turning the album into Matador twice for vinyl and CD pressings, as the album was only officially completed weeks before it came out on DSPs. By the time the album’s second single, “Martin”, came out, the band was forced to delay (and eventually cancel) their tour for MADLO, where Toledo would have performed as Trait, wearing a custom-made gas mask (as seen in the music video and various press photos) with LED-eyes.
In the press release/album description, Toledo said the following about the mask:
Bob Dylan said, “if someone’s wearing a mask, he’s gonna tell you the truth...if he’s not wearing a mask, it’s highly unlikely.” He never actually wore a mask onstage so I don’t know why he said that. But I decided to start wearing a mask for a couple of reasons. One, I still get nervous being onstage with everybody looking at me. If everyone is looking at the mask instead, then it feels like we’re all looking at the same thing, and that is more honest to me. Two, music should be about enjoying yourself, especially live music, and I think of this costume as a way to remind myself and everyone else to have some fun with it. I don’t think it changes anything else about the songs or how you feel about them to be able to drop it for a second and have fun with it. If you can’t do that then you’re in a bad place…
Making A Door Less Open was released on May 1st, 2020 via Matador, and the band’s activities since its release have been limited, with Toledo playing a couple of acoustic live streams on his Twitch channel, the band performing “Can’t Cool Me Down” on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, and the upcoming release of Katz’s second video game, Lombardi's World (For the sake of transparency, I got to play the game early in a press session a few weeks ago), the objective of which is to kill Matador Records founder Chris Lombardi. The game is also being published by Matador Records and Trait (voiced by Toledo) appears as a playable character.
Write-Up by ReconEG
Prologue: 2016, The Life of Pablo, and Falling Out of Love with Kanye West & In Love w/ Denial
Remember when we all weren’t sick of Kanye West? Or at the very least, remember when we could tolerate Kanye West’s bullshit? It seems like a lifetime ago, but there was a time where Kanye West made records that, even with a ton of baggage, were unfathomably great. Coming into 2016 though, I had a lot more fear about the next Kanye West album. While 2014 was mostly a quiet year for him in terms of new music, 2015 saw Kanye spending a year ramping up to something. What that was was hard to guess. Whether he was showing his soft side on “Only One,” attempting to pivot back to pop on “FourFiveSeconds” or trying to make an arena banger in “All Day”, almost nothing he released this year landed for me. The fact that my favorite Kanye song in 2015 was a leaked reference track for Rihanna speaks volumes to how bad of a year this was for him.
But in 2016, the slate was cleared as Kanye began to properly set up the release of a new album. I’m sure most of you reading this have some sort of PTSD related to the release of The Life of Pablo so I won’t make you relive much of the events, but overall after going back and forth for at least a solid month or two, I realized that I was falling out of love with Kanye West. While there were still bits of genius in Pablo, it was simply disorganized, messy, and at times, straight up bad. While interesting in theory, updating the album like a video game with various patches over the next few months ended up making it worse and worse.
When artists like Frank Ocean, Angel Olsen, and Car Seat Headrest were releasing their own ambitious projects that actually felt like they were fully conceived, I didn’t really need Kanye West anymore. My decision feels more and more justified by the day.
Chapter 1: 2018, Twin Fantasy, and Bad Times at Delmar Hall
Considering we won’t get to have traditional live shows again for another year or so, it feels weird to complain about past concerts. Hell, it feels weird to complain about concerts that were overall good, but left a bad taste in your mouth by the end or just wasn’t up to snuff. While many praised the Twin Fantasy tour and the monstrous 7-man lineup Toledo put together including the members of Naked Giants, it just didn’t really land for me when I saw them in St. Louis on September 27, 2018. It doesn’t help that I wasn’t the only one as the crowd felt deflated for about half the setlist which was filled with unique re-arrangements of classic CSH tunes & obscure covers.
It seems Will Toledo could figure this out to, as towards the end of their cover of Dexy’s Midnight Runners’ “Tell Me When My Light Turns Green”, he threw down his mic and bum-rushed off the stage to the exit, causing his band to quickly wrap up the song and make their way off the stage, never to return despite calls for an encore. I chalked this up at the time to general tour fatigue as the show at Delmar Hall was their second-to-last for that leg of the tour, and as I wrote this on my blog at the time about the show:
While my first reaction to Toledo and the band skipping the encore was anger, it quickly turned into a feeling of understanding, as from many different interviews with many different bands, it was clear that Toledo was simply burnt out. When you’re on the road for up to two months at a time, away from home, friends, and family, and playing shows almost every night, burnout just becomes an inevitable, especially when you’re just a few days away from the tour being over. Toledo has suffered from tour burnout before, as in a recent interview with Rolling Stone, he cited a 2016 European tour as the low point of his past two years, saying “being on that bus with no sleep and just the same task day after day and feeling like we’re getting nowhere,” with the band’s drummer Andrew Katz confirming that sentiment in an interview I did with him on the Indieheads Podcast.
Now while I love going to shows, I have to realize I’m unknowingly supporting a cycle of emotional hardship that hundreds and hundreds of bands have to go through on a regular basis just to have a career in music. With the industry moving towards streaming being the hottest new consumption method, it leaves a lot of artists in the dust as streaming royalties across the board are ridiculously low, forcing them to travel across the world for months at a time just to make ends meet.
So, I’m not saying don’t go to shows or don’t support artists, as if you really do love them and want them to keep making music, this is the best way to do it as of now. However, to quote a line from “Drunk Drivers / Killer Whales” off of Teens of Denial: “It doesn’t have to be like this.” With the Music Modernization Act recently making its way through Congress, hopefully things will change for the better in the next couple of years, but the music industry seemingly always finds a way to screw over bands/artists no matter the size. So, if you happen to be reading this Will Toledo, I think you’re listening to too much classic rock and probably need to calm down a bit. But really though, I’m just hoping you’re doing well and enjoying your time off the road. I know it can be a rough life being a touring musician and I hope you’re fully recharged the next time you head out on the road.
Okay I’m gonna get really, really bummed if I keep thinking about the havoc COVID-19 and the U.S. government’s lack of response has wreaked upon the live music industry, so let’s just wrap this all up real quick. I was bummed about this show and it gave me great skepticism about what was next for Car Seat Headrest if this was the direction he wanted to take the band. Much like I doubted if I needed Kanye West at the end of 2016, by the beginning of 2020, I wasn’t really sure if I needed Will Toledo anymore either.
Chapter 2: WinteSpring 2020, The Singles, and Early COVID-19 Times
When Making A Door Less Open was announced towards the end of the winter in 2020, I was both excited and worried. Considering that the band had only officially released one bit of original material written by Toledo in-between Teens of Denial and now, I was excited to see what he had spent the last few years cooking up. But upon hearing the lead single, “Can’t Cool Me Down”, that bit of skepticism crept back up once again. I knew I liked the song, but there was just something… off here that I couldn’t quite place.
But soon the song and the album announcement went into the memory hole, as only a month after its release: everything went to shit. Even though singles kept on rolling out for the album throughout the rest of early spring, I couldn’t be bothered to care all that much. “Martin” came out when I was planning the Indieheads Festival so it didn’t leave much of a mark on me, and like many when “Hollywood” came out, I was appalled. So with two okay singles and one disastrous one, expectations for this new album were low. It turns out that was probably a good thing for me.
Chapter 3: Late Spring 2020, The Rollout, and What Happens When You Start Hanging Out with That Andrew Katz Boy.
So while the singles helped set some low expectations for the album, that wasn’t the full story. Compared to the other big indie record labels that are willing to experiment now and again with album rollouts and how things are timed out, Matador plays things pretty nice and traditional. Their albums are usually announced about 3-4 months in advance and 3-4 singles are spread out in that time. For most artists, this works out fine. For Making A Door Less Open? Eh!
One of the biggest head scratchers about the album’s rollout was that there were going to be three versions of the album, with the vinyl, CD, and digital versions of this album all being different. Similar to The Life of Pablo, Toledo was working right up to the deadline to finish the album and it seems some sort of compromise was made so that Toledo could finish the album past the deadline & make sure physical copies were pressed on time. I honestly chalk up this album’s mixed response from critics to be because of this mishap, as it seems like most of them received an advance of the CD or LP version, which have the following tracklists:
LP Version
  1. Weightlifters
  2. Can't Cool Me Down
  3. Hollywood
  4. There Must Be More Than Blood
  5. Hymn
  6. Deadlines
  7. Martin
  8. What's With You Lately
  9. Life Worth Missing
  10. Famous
CD Version
  1. Weightlifters
  2. Can't Cool Me Down
  3. Hollywood
  4. Martin
  5. Hymn (Remix)
  6. There Must Be More Than Blood
  7. Deadlines
  8. What's With You Lately
  9. Life Worth Missing
  10. Famous
If you love the album like me, you’ll notice a number of cringe-worthy sequencing choices here throughout both versions, like “Hollywood” being pushed up just a bit too soon, “There Must Be More Than Blood” being either the centerpiece or way too early in the album, and “Deadlines” in its original version being so far back (and also it being the original version of “Deadlines”). Similar to LCD Soundsystem’s american dream, a lot of the songs on this version of MADLO are good, but when they’re placed where they are within the album, they lose a lot of their possible impact.
I stress all of this because the thing with MADLO is that this album should have been a disaster. And this isn’t even mentioning the mask stuff which I’m not gonna say much in the review besides saying if COVID didn’t happen, it probably would be pretty cool and work really well seeing them live. What’s most important about the mask is that it allowed Toledo to escape from himself a bit after years in the spotlight, being able to write songs from a slightly different perspective.
While on tour, drummer Andrew Katz conceived the 1 Trait Danger project as a way to cure boredom and make himself and his bandmates laugh, with Toledo quickly latching onto the project as he played a much larger role on the project’s second album, 1 Trait World Tour. This role constituted creating an alternative persona for himself called “Trait”, who wears an orange hazmat suit and appears to be some kind of small bunny? Or a small dog man? Or… um? Look, it doesn’t matter what animal Trait is as the most important element here is that when Toledo and his band hit the studio to record MADLO, 1 Trait Danger’s EDM sound inspired Toledo to look past the medium sized concert halls his band was playing and onto huge crowds at the music festivals he and Katz had made fun of on World Tour.
Speaking with the New York Times earlier this year, Matador Records founder Chris Lombardi said the following about Toledo:
“Before this album was recorded, he told me he wanted to make an album that had the sonic capability of competing with some of the other new pop or hip-hop acts at the Coachellas of the world, or the Lollapaloozas of the world,” Lombardi said, so “when he was going onstage, he wasn’t being overshadowed by whoever else was playing a more futuristic type of music with a more electronic type of palette — that he would be able to compete against them and win.”
Of course, this mindset seems extremely passé now considering that there are no pop or hip-hop acts to compete with at these festivals because these festivals aren’t going to exist again for quite some time. Whatever the case though, Toledo saw something in Katz’s sound that he wanted to bring over to Car Seat Headrest. When recalling this conservation in that same Times piece, Katz said “I’m thinking to myself, ‘The label’s going to freak out. Andrew Katz is about to ruin Car Seat Headrest.’”
So, did he?
Chapter 4: Summer 2020, Making A Door Less Open, and the Eternal Question of “Why Doesn’t Everyone Have Brain Worms Like Me?”
Considering the title of this series, it’s safe to say that Katz did not ruin Car Seat Headrest. For me at least anyways. The jury’s still out overall, as you’ll probably find out reading the comments of this post. But what I learned upon my first listen or two to MADLO is that I should never doubt my loyalty to Will Toledo. I should never doubt the way this man and his music have made me feel. I shall never express doubt towards him again because he knows how to wire into my brain and express feelings I don’t know how to articulate myself.
A lot of people focus on the new bells and whistles Toledo and Katz have added onto the MADLO project, and while they’re important, Toledo has not lost his abilities as a writer here, even if he’s a little less wordy than he usually is. Maybe it’s because of his age, maybe it’s to inhabit that festival music mindset, maybe it’s something else I haven’t quite latched onto, but even with fewer turns of phrase, there’s something about Toledo’s words that grab onto me.
Take “Deadlines (Hostile)”, which hooked me pretty quickly due to its resemblance to something off of Teens of Denial. For an artist who is pretty self-aware about their awkwardness, this first version of “Deadlines” we hear on the album is the most swaggering and confident we’ve heard Toledo, as it turns out inhabiting Trait kind of makes Toledo sound cool? Or at the very least, he’s pretty damn good at making himself sound cool as his tale of forbidden attraction just fucking hits. As someone who spent much of their late teens & early 20s slowly building up their self-confidence via empty hookups and short-lived long-distance relationships, “Deadlines (Hostile)” encapsulates these conflicted feelings so perfectly as Toledo repeats “Am I, am I, am I, am I on your mind? / Is it, is it, is it, is it what you like?” early on in the hook.
The perspective seems to shift to the other party though on its counterpart, “Deadlines (Thoughtful)”, which sounds much more in-line with the rest of the album, sounding like an early Crystal Castles (FUCK ETHAN KATH AKA CLAUDIO PALMIERI, ALL LOVE TO ALICE GLASS) cut with its blistering synths and hard-hitting sequenced percussion. The song centers on the lines “Oh compassion, it’s transforming me into-”, with Toledo unable to finish that thought as he explained to Apple Music:
The line ‘Oh, compassion is transforming me into’—it’s an unfinished thought because I think that the ellipsis is the end of the thought. In a way, it kind of ties back to ‘Martin’ and ‘Just when I think I’m gone, you change the track I’m on.’ You have a slightly different idea here of compassion taking you off that track, whatever track you go down where you just kind of get narrower and hollower as you get older and it just turns you into something vaguer, you know? And I think that it seems like when people get older, they either get sort of ground down to the basics of their personality and they can’t change out of that or they kind of just drift and they get weirder and they just don’t define themselves and that allows them some sort of freedom. That line is sort of pointing at keeping compassion alive as a way of allowing yourself to drift and become something different, someone different or possibly nothing at all, but just resisting definition for one more night.
These fears of getting older and what that does to your personality and sense of self are seen all throughout the album, but its most notable in the album’s opening and closing chapters, “Weightlifters” and “Famous”, with the former hitting especially different in quarantine times, as the song touches on hints of body dysmorphia and the buried feelings that cause it. I was already struggling with my weight & body image issues prior to COVID but things have been especially worse now, as it’s simply just hard to find the inspiration to want to get into shape when you’ve got 50 other mental blocks you gotta get through to get there. It’s not the best feeling getting out of the shower and looking in the mirror and just feeling disgusted and awful looking anywhere below my chin. As Will Toledo quietly ponders on the hook “‘Cause I believe / Thoughts can change your body / It’s all on me”, it feels like he’s hooking directly into my brain when I take these looks at myself.
These thoughts on thoughts come back full circle on “Famous” as Toledo repeats “Change your mind” over and over before he asks “Did you change your mind?”, getting ready to ask that question once more before cutting himself off, much like he cut himself off in “Deadlines (Thoughtful)”, leaving things unanswered once again, as one does sometimes when dealing with this. From my own experience, sometimes my brain just shuts down when I think too long about my body, eventually finding its way to fixate on something else for a bit. One thing about my issues with my body is that I don’t talk about it enough, as I haven’t been able to prioritize therapy since the initial lockdowns but even then, I just hate bringing it up to any of my friends, so when Toledo sings “Someone will care about this / Please let somebody care about this”, it just… hurts. In the right way.
These feelings of just wanting someone to care about me go far beyond my body dysmorphia and fully extend to my mental health at large, as one of the worst things about depression is that it’s extremely good at isolating you from everyone in your life with the feeling of “nobody cares about you.” I had a very good friend in my life recently fall victim to this and it’s been devastating to see. They were someone who I always considered to be such a beacon of hope and optimism and to see these feelings ravage them and our relationship hurts more and more every day and I feel powerless to stop it. While “I should start lifting weights” is meant literally in “Weightlifters”, I can’t help but feel like it's talking about the weights of depression and how hard they can be to lift also.
Anyways, let’s talk about the global elite pedophile cabal and MADLO’s most polarizing song, “Hollywood.” Possibly the most abrasive CSH song since their early Bandcamp days, it’s also one of their poppiest, with the song peaking at #29 on Billboard’s Alternative Airplay chart, where it charted overall for 14 weeks. Even before I hosted a podcast series talking about butt rock, I already swung around pretty quickly to liking this song as first and foremost, the main riff is sick. It’s big, it’s fat, it’s meaty, it’s rock and roll baby. Toledo mostly takes a backseat on this song as a vocalist, letting Katz try out his best Fred Durst impression as he destroys his throat screaming about how disgusting LA/Hollywood is. It’s essentially a Conner O’Malley video but as a song, and for that I have to stan. I wonder if Andrew and Will listen to TrueAnon?
But since we’re on the topic of Andrew Katz, let’s talk about his overall influence on the album, as while I don’t think he’s affected Toledo’s songwriting all that much (the poppier leanings of this album do seem to fall solely on Toledo), he has affected the sonic textures this album explores, with his experience in EDM mixing getting shown off in a variety of ways. Sometimes it's subtle and tasteful like on “Martin”, with the frantic percussion perfectly tying into Toledo’s lyrics of past figures of people in his life and the feelings and reminders of said feelings that pop up every now and then. Other times it’s more pronounced like on the previously mentioned “Famous” or “Hymn - Remix”, as in its original version, “Hymn” is like a combination of something off of Tim Hecker’s Love Streams and Radiohead’s “Morning Bell/Amnesiac”, with the remix turning that into something that can best be described as Car Seat Headrest meets The King of Limbs.
Radiohead ends up being a not so surprising touchstone regarding this album as much like Car Seat Headrest, Radiohead turned to electronic music after a period of tour burnout following two critically adored and highly regarded albums. Though, it might be more apt to compare this record to a different 90s alt rock band, The Smashing Pumpkins. While Adore is technically the Pumpkins’ electronica record, a lot of the electronic touches on that album are more textural, much like MADLO. Adore was Corgan trying to re-ground his band, as you simply can’t keep making albums like Siamese Dream and Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness over and over again, just like we can’t expect Toledo to keep making more albums like Teens of Denial and Twin Fantasy. As an artist, it’s sometimes hard finding a middle ground between pleasing your fans and chasing your creative dragon, but more often than not, I’m gonna respect an artist who continually chases that dragon, even if the results might vary.
Before the album came out, it already felt like Toledo was on the defense regarding his creative choices on the album and its promotion, as he literally gave a PowerPoint to Matador Records going over everything about the album from its cover, the Trait character, what the title meant, etc. Even on their comedown record, Toledo and the band still have plenty of chips on the table, and that’s the dissonance that I love the most about MADLO, as the high melodrama and extended lengths of Teens of Denial and Twin Fantasy don’t quite appeal to me like it used to. They’re both great records that I love dearly, but at this point in my life, I’m much more aligned these days with the person I’m hearing on MADLO.
Chapter 5: Fall 2020, The MADLO Manifesto, and Ah Goddammit How Do I End This Ahh!!!!
The song I loved the most on the 2018 version of Twin Fantasy was “High to Death.” It’s probably the most drastically changed song from the original version of the album and in my books, the most vastly improved. One important change the song had was the addition of a voicemail from artist Hojin Stella Jung (who did the single artwork for “Beach Life-in-Death” and “Nervous Young Inhumans”) to the Nevada Museum of Art:
Hello, my name is Hojin Stella Jung, I'm a senior at McQueen High School, my portfolio is a collection of paintings - that was created during last summer, and the first half of my senior year, and it's called "The Lady", and I didn't feel very well when I painted the first, and I didn't feel very well when I painted the last. It was intense, it was an intense process, and it was how I was trying to - very hard, personify that intensity, but it's hard to talk about her now, because I think she wasn't me, at least that's how I feel and I'm trying to figure out what to do now.
But she represents fervor in woman, she is powerful, yet fragile, she dares but also averts her gaze, and I love her, at least - I did, and - but now I feel lost, and I'm unsure of what to think and feel most of the time. But I did believe in her, "The Lady", and maybe, there is a different form now that the intensity takes.”
The intensity of my early college years that I felt is all there in Teens of Denial and Twin Fantasy. I was truly passionate about what I was doing or trying to do in college radio and it was a frustrating experience. I wasn’t seeking therapy at that time so instead of working out my emotions in a healthy way, I was probably taking things out on people and things that didn’t deserve it. But now with four years removed from that time, I’ve gone to counselling and met the love of my life, and I’ve learned to work that intensity into healthier things and spreading it out in ways where I not only don’t hurt the people around me, but not immolating myself in the process.
While at the time it was clear to tie “The Lady” as a parallel to Twin Fantasy, I see “The Lady” more now as a parallel to Car Seat Headrest as a whole. When talking about writing those previous records, Toledo doesn’t look back fondly as Teens of Denial particularly was written during a “very depressed and angry phase of my life” according to his interview with Huck. He described a similar scenario when talking about writing Making A Door Less Open, saying “I don’t think I was quite so angry or depressed, but it just felt like a hollow useless time. I was doing a lot of stuff that I felt wasn’t going anywhere.”
And right now, that’s where I’m at. While 2020 was an extremely busy year for me where I was doing a lot, I still feel like I haven’t gone anywhere, as I’m still stuck in the same bedroom in the same financial situation I’ve been stuck in for years where I’m doing so much but yet it feels like so little. One of the most honest things about MADLO is that there’s no true resolution. Will Toledo ends the album where he started, hoping his thoughts could change his situation and desperately begging for such. Even throughout the album’s various versions, this doesn’t change. The route to get there might be different, but point A and B stay the same, because it’s a loop.
I hope to break it one day and someone cares as I try.
Favorite Lyrics
'Cause I believe
That thoughts can change your body
It's all on me
If thoughts can change your body
I believe
That thoughts can change my body
It dawned on me
Your body can change your mind
  • “Weightlifters”
I was thinking people never change
But there's a new taste of dread that I cannot explain
And the thoughts that make up my life
Get reflected in others from time to time
  • “Deadlines (Hostile)”
Don't go back to Oklahoma
What's in Oklahoma?
  • “Hollywood”
I'm tired of coming home sick
Someone will care about this
Please let somebody care about this

NOTE: In case you haven't followed the process for putting together the series this year, here is a quick recap. The lineup was culled from over a hundred pitches sent into us in two threads, one in mid-October and one in early November. If you are wondering why a certain album didn't make it to the lineup, there was either not a pitch for it, or there were other pitches we liked more. As with almost every year we've done this series, the schedule above is subject to change, but there will only be minor changes at that (moving of dates or maybe an album or two being replaced at most).

2020.11.30 17:53 MortSahlfan Timothy Leary and the CIA

What do you all think? Was he mostly negative, or did he do things to help? Some early proponents of LSD said his outspokenness and craving for media attention delegitimized the entire idea of seriously studying LSD, not being overzealous, so that it would NOT be illegal
Anyway, I wanted to paste something I've had and thought you all would like it.


The Associated Press reported that '60's LSD proselyte, Timothy Leary died in his sleep, May 31, 1996. It reported that Carol Rosin, his friend for 25 years was by his side along with family and friends.
Rosin told the AP: "He had been alert for the last few days – he'd been traveling with one foot in this world and one foot in the other world. Until yesterday, he was moving around in an electric wheelchair, but he was getting weaker.
After his passing, Leary's homepage on the World Wide Web said simply: "Timothy has passed." It also said his last words were three "why not's" and one "yeah." Leary himself, had reported that he was taking morphine to ease the pain for months. It is well know that Leary had always been into drugs – any drugs, all drugs, both prescription and recreational.
An Intensive Care Nurse read the internet reports of his death. It said his last words were "why not", "why not", "why not" in several different tones , and his final word was "yeah.'
"I've seen a lot of people die with cancer," the ICU nurse said. (For obvious reasons she does not want to be identified.) "It's very painful to die that way. From all report's Leary's death must have been a mophine assisted death.
"The final script probably went like this: ' Timothy do you want a shot of morphine to ease your pain?'
" And he answered, 'Why not?'
" A little while later whoever was administering the morphine checked on him, asking him, 'Would you like a little more morphine?'
"And he answered, 'Why not?'
"After an interval, the morphine admistrator asked, 'How about some more morphine?'
"And Leary answered, 'Why not?'
"After that they asked, "I'll bet you're feeling no pain now?'
"And, just before the morphine paralyzed his cardio-pulminary system, he replied, "Yeah."
So Timothy Leary finally fulfilled the prophecy in the Moody Blues tune,"Legend of a Mind." At least he fulfilled the first phrase: "Timothy Leary's dead…. Oh, no no no, no no no nooo, he's on the outside looking in…" More on that later.
A couple of millionaire movie producers who put up thousands of dollars for Timothy Leary's escape are sad and disappointed. An army of middle aged acid-heads and flower children who contributed thousands more to the Timothy Leary Defense Fund, and other funds which were supposed to help Tim beat a rap or get out of jail are in deep mourning.
But somewhere, in Heaven, in Hell, in the great cosmic void, or confronting a fearsome isn'tness Timothy Leary is probably grinning at them. The glib Boston Irishman conned them all. They paid for what the government did without their funds – arrange Leary's "escape" in 1970 from Vacaville prison, and his tour of Algeria, Switzerland, and Afghanistan. At least, that's a logical conclusion you could draw from an interview he gave in 1977.
After he returned to the United States in 1973 it is said that he was assigned to solitary confinement next to a "hole mate" who quoted the bible in a booming voice. This "Born Again Christian" was none other than Charles Manson. Leary left his "Turn on , tune in, drop out" campaign behind in prison, he became a self- styled prophet of "Life Extension" and "Space Exploration," "Cyronics" and finally "Cyberspace." All these, he said in turn with great enthusiasm, were where it was at! He had been arrested by G. Gordon Liddy in 1965 at the Deitrich estate in Millbrook, N.Y. He was photographed with a big smile going into the Duchess County jail. Almost twenty years later he was debating Liddy on the college lecture circuit (receiving a minimum of $2,500 per appearance) still wearing that same smile.
That smile was his trademark. It was a smile which masked his vacuity and desperation. It was the smile of a pretender. The smile of a failed husband and father. "Half a song and half a gag," was how writer Alan Harrington's wife, Luba, once described Leary. He was an academically disgraced psychologist who wrote one serious book, Interpersonal Diagnosis of Personality, which today stimulates the same interest from the scientific community as does phrenology. While some people thought he was a prophet of the new age, he was, deep inside himself, a cast-off CIA asset who died without purpose, fluttering like a hang-glider trying to fly in windless air without the propeller of a cause to lift it.
He did not go with a "Bang" nor a "Whimper." He did not rage against the dying of the light. He did not die with a smile on his face, as he had lived, even in utmost tragedy, such as when his first wife, and then his only daughter commited suicide. Leary lived to the ripe old age of 75, then he died of natural cuases. He was not assassinated by one of his many enemies. That is success.
The last time I saw Leary was in Tucson, Arizona where he came for a lecture in support of the L-5 Society, a group which promoted private enterprise in space. Leary phoned me and asked to see me about an "urgent matter." The matter, turned out to be not that urgent, but very interesting.
Leary wanted to explain himself more completely about a series of letters we'd exchanged during his last days in prison, letters in which he denied that he had received any support from the CIA or other clandestine agencies of government in his psychedelic campaign of the 1960's.
While doing research for my book, Operation Mind Control (originally published in 1978), I'd come across a CIA document with Leary's name on it. The CIA memo directed agents to contact Leary and company, who were then operating an organization called International Federation for Internal Freedom ( IFIF). The memo asked its agents to discover if any agency personnel were taking acid with this group. The CIA wanted to determine what IFIF really knew about what was then billed as "the most powerful drug known to man," LSD, a drug which the agency was experimenting with in an attempt to create mind controlled zombies.
Another, earlier similar CIA document I found ordered agents to contact Aldous Huxley for the same reason. There were no follow-up documents to indicate whether the CIA had, or had not, made contact in either instance. Still, other documents indicated that Leary had received money channeled by the CIA through various government agencies. The files showed that, in all, there were eight government grants paid to Leary from 1953 to 1958, most of them paid through the National Institute of Mental Health, now known to have "fronted" for the CIA in the MKULTRA program.
My letters to Leary had been straight forward. I asked him to explain his apparent long romance with the cryptocracy. I further wanted to know if, as the press had reported, he had become a witness for the government in a number of drug cases. Was he, I asked, a government snitch?
In July, 1976, writing from prison, Leary flatly denied that the government had contributed to his psychedelic research. He claimed that "nobody ever went to jail because of any testimony" he might have given.
He explained that he had never used any form of Behavior Modification in his experiments, although a title of one of his papers had been, "How to Change Behavior." He told me I could find out whether his grants were CIA connected by writing NIMH and Harvard.
He said, writing to me from jail, that if they were covertly CIA funded he had no knowledge of it.
A letter from Bertram Brown, Director of NIMH, neither confirmed nor denied that NIMH had supported Leary's research. Brown did say that Harvard had received grants for drug research, but NIMH record keeping did not permit knowledge below the "major institution level." Harvard said it could not find its records on Leary's research there, as it was too far in the past. (This was in 1977.)
Joanna (Harcourt-Smith) Leary and a coworker told me that they had tried to contact Leary for several months when he was in Folsom and he could not be found. After normal attempts through prison authorities had failed to locate him, they took their case to the press and gathered a number of famous persons to sign a petition protesting the disappearance of the Pope of Dope.
Joanna told me that, after the outcry in the media had grown loud, prison authorities quickly "located" Leary and allowed her to visit him. She said that when, at last, she sat across the prison table from him, separated by a pane of thick glass, he looked very pale. She said he had his head completely shaved, had bruises on his body, and didn't seem like the man she'd known before.
Before he was released from prison, I wrote him to ask if he had been mistreated in prison or subjected to aversive therapy or any other form of behavior modification. Leary said that he had never been mistreated at the Vacaville California Medical Facility. He wrote that the administration of Vacaville "probably ranks with the most enlightened in the country."
His "enlightened facility was where horrendous experiments such as "anectine therapy" had been conducted on non-volunteer inmates under CIA covert guidance. Anectine stops the respiratory functions of the body and the "subject" feels as if they are dying. An attendant must keep them breathing with a machine. As the panic sets in when the involuntary muscles quit, an attendant says, "This is what will happen if you break the law ." And just before the "subject" loses consciousness, the respiratory is turned on the the "subject" is brought back from the brink of death.
In following correspondence I explained to Leary what I'd found: that the CIA was the world's largest consumer of Sandoz LSD; that they'd worked with the Bureau of Narcotics, the NIMH, LEAA and other agencies to covertly give LSD to unwitting persons in "real life settings."
Leary's answer to that was that he did not think the CIA experimentation with LSD was very ominous. His conclusion was, "based on my fifteen years of confrontation on the front lines of the struggle ( individual freedom vs state control) are these: "–govt 'behavior mod programs' were trivial, peripheral, more benign than evil, ineffective, silly, and never a part of any basic policy…"
He called me a "prosecutor" and said that he was disappointed that I saw corruption and conspiracy within our government. He railed about "liberal paranoia" saying that it "is a thousand times more effective and pervasive than 'right wing' scientific efforts." He said that "ninety-nine percent of all psychologists are liberals. All prisons are networks of suspicion. There is no behavior mod conspiracy. Such rumors spread among the liberal community are dangerous because they distract attention from the real problem – that the Law Enforcement establishment does not want to alter behavior…"
When I finally sat with Leary in Tucson, we renewed acquaintances. A couple of his old friends were at our house when he visited and he was glad to see them. Since I'd last seen him, almost ten years before, his nose appeared to have been broken and his dentures no longer fit. All agreed, after he left, that this was not the same man we'd known before he'd gone to prison. We couldn't tell if he'd changed because of the normal prison brutality, or because he was under some great pressures or had been tortured. In those days nobody believed in mind control. Few knew of the clandestine experiments on U.S. citizens which were run against their will and without their knowledge.
The first thought I had when seeing the altered Leary was, "He's been the victim of one of the secret prison mind control programs."
We drank wine and talked lightly about news of mutual friends. Finally he insisted that he and I go to a quiet place and make a tape recorded interview. I'd just finished Operation Mind Control and had sent it of to the publisher. It was too late to get anything new into it and, I told Tim, that frankly I was weary of the subject. He insisted that we tape an interview.
"I'll tell you things I've never told anyone before," he said. I couldn't resist such a journalistic temptation, so we went to my office with our glasses and turned on the tape recorder.
He started by congratulating me for breaking the CIA-mind control story. I couldn't take full credit for that, but I listened, accepting his compliments for the three of us who'd been working on the mind control case for a few years.
"The game you're playing, and the stakes at which you're gambling… you may be wrong ninety-nine times, but if you're right once, you've won a billion, or whatever you're playing for, so keep going…"
I certainly wasn't playing for the money. The stakes were higher. These stakes were no less than freedom of human thought and perhaps the remnants of democracy in the world. But maybe I was naive. Maybe I should write screenplays and make some money instead of running around the country researching the victims of CIA mind control experiments conducted in the streets of New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles and other cities, as well as in prisons, mental hospitals, in the ranks of the military services, on unwitting and unvolunteering men women and children.
"The contract I'm making with you," Leary said, " is, I never lie. I'm wrong a lot of the time, but I'm going to tell you everything you ask me. I'm not going to hide anything. On the other hand, and there is no question that I want to ask you… on the other hand I want to know things…"
So, it was to be quid pro quo then?
I agreed to share any information I had with him on the CIA's involvement with drugs and mind control, but I told him, fact was, everything I knew, except the personal details of certain survivors, had already been made public. "Have you ever knowingly worked for the CIA?" I asked.
"If I were working for the CIA," he said, " I would have ten people working making a living exposing me. If I were the CIA, I'd own New Republic. I'd own The New Masses. I'd own Rolling Stone. I'd have 50 groups of people exposing the CIA…" "Do you think CIA people were involved in your group in the sixties?" I asked. Without hesitating Leary said, "Of course they were. I would say that eighty percent of my movements, eighty percent of the decisions I made were suggested to me by CIA people…
"I like the CIA!" he said. "The game they're playing is better than the FBI. Better than the Saigon police. Better than Franco's police. Better than the Israeli police. They're a thousand times better than the KGB. So it comes down to: who are you going to work for? The Yankees or the Dodgers?"
Leary had this in common with people I knew at the Mellon Bank. Baseball metaphors. Heavy baseball metaphors, same as Nixon used. I'd heard Leary use them since I met him in 1965. I wondered if it was just a coincidence?
Leary drank his wine and drifted a bit, talking about his current favorite subject, outer space. I brought the conversation back to the subject of mind control, telling Leary some of the details I'd learned about the CIA's use of drugs for thirty years in their attempt to find the perfect "recruitment pill, aphrodisiac, and amnesia drug." I explained the magnitude of the story and I told him that, based on my interviews with survivors of the experiments and psycho scientists who'd done some of them, I had to conclude that the CIA had long ago reached their goal of creating the perfect security device short of assassination – one which controlled the human mind.
I told Leary that, based on some of the documents I'd read, it seemed that he could have been just one of many scientist who'd been used without his knowledge by the CIA to conduct their mind control experiments.
"I've known this for ten years," Leary said.
"You were witting of it?" I asked in surprise.
"Of course," Leary said, leaning back in his chair with confidence.
I couldn't believe my ears. The CIA had created the "Psychedelic Sixties" with Timothy Leary's help?
"You were wittingly used by the CIA?" I asked again. "…During the sixties? You knew you were being used by the CIA?"
"Wait," Leary said. "When you say CIA, it's like saying Niggers… "I knew I was being used by the intelligence agents of this country."
"What were you doing for them?" I asked. "What the hell were you doing? "Did they want you to turn the kids on, huh? Were they trying to make the kids see God and leave the Vietnam war alone?"
"Walter, are you starting off into nationalism…" Leary said, trying to put me on the defensive – exhibiting his fatal character flaw – sold on himself as a master psychologist, a master manipulator.
"I'm asking you what was the CIA's motive? What were you used for?" I said again.
"The CIA recognized what you probably haven't recognized yet, that I'm a very important national asset… "What can I say,?" Leary said.
That was Leary. He believed his own press releases.
He lit his half-smoked joint and continued. "Yeah. I saw in nineteen sixty-two or three, that there was a world struggle for the control of minds. That's a crude way to say it… "I saw, after Hiroshima, there would never be a big world war. World war would be at the neurological level, not at the level of tanks and planes and bombs…
"I proceeded as an intelligence agent since 1962, understanding that the next war for control of this planet and beyond, had to do with the control of consciousness. So I had to think very carefully about that…
"I wanted my side to win the war… "There's no winning or losing… but I wanted my side to stake out enough territory….
"I'm talking about time territory, not space territory…. "Of course, you need enough space territory to get your time to make sure that the particular version of the territory of consciousness I would be represented in… I believed, after studying all the other versions, that my philosophy of the future… skip philosophy… my Clausewitz tactics and strategy, or my natural chauvinistic consciousness commitments were very fierce and strong…
"I wanted my species to be recognized, understood and have a strong single voice in creating the reality of the future… "I wanted to create a segment of the future which I felt I would be the spokesman for…"
I let him talk. When he paused to catch his thought which had drifted away on a puff of muggles, I repeated the question: "Did you ever wittingly work for the CIA?"
"Yes," he answered strongly. "I was a witting agent of the CIA, but, I'm not a willing agent of Nixon! I did everything in my power to throw out Nixon!" (So, it would appear, did the CIA.)
"I'm a witting agent in that I think Roosevelt was a disaster, but historically necessary…. So, pin me down and I'll tell you exactly what I'm doing for the CIA," he said.
"What are you doing for the CIA?" I said, disbelieving everything he said.
"I'm raising the intelligence of an elite… a very elite group of Americans," he said. "So I think the future of freedom depends on a very small group of people who are smart enough to defend that liberty…"
"So, you work for the Central Intelligence Agency?" I asked. "Is it the Deputy Director of Plans you work for? Who makes out your checks?"
"It's none of your business to know how those things work. I'll answer you no questions that have to do with business. I'll answer you any question about history or people…"
He drifted off into a monologue talking about neurological cosmology, his outer space connections. Again I brought the conversation back to the central question again :" What year did you start working for the CIA?"
"Well, I never worked in the sense that nobody ever came to me and said would you work for the CIA…"
"Nobody recruited you?" I asked.
"No, nobody ever recruited me. People came and advised me to do this or that. I didn't know that I was being advised by the CIA. I assume now, that I was being advised by the CIA…"
"But a moment ago you did say that you knew at the time. You said that you were wittingly working for the CIA…"
"Don't you understand," Leary barked, "I'm talking about a very narrow segment of CIA activity which has to do with personality assessment. The OSS was the forerunner of CIA mind stuff… OSS founded… Howard Murray, who was the head of the OSS, the started the personality research. MacKinnon who was OSS, started personality assessment research, so that all personality assessment in the 1950's was basically CIA initiated…"
Later research disclosed the Donald W. MacKinnon, Ph.D. (Bryn Mawr College) and Henry A. Murray, M.C., Ph.D., Lt. Col. (Harvard) were among 74 OSS staff members who worked to develop personality assessment techniques which are still used to select employees of the CIA and other intelligence agencies.
"Good grief," I said. "I knew they supported Dr. Rhine's ESP experiments at Duke University…"
"I didn't know that," Leary said. "But I think they should have…" and finally the wine began to take effect and the interview degenerated into speculation about CIA's activities in various LSD research projects. Leary was curious about several of them and he asked me to see if I could dig up some information for him. Leary asked me about other LSD researchers of the early days. He wanted to know about Walter Pankhe and he was especially interested in the Chez. psychiatrist Stanislav Grof, who, he said, had been brought from behind the "Iron Curtain" to the U.S. to run one of the only official "LSD Research Projects."
At one point in the conversation Leary told me he had talked at length with Al Larkin, a reporter for the Boston Globe which had been investigating his research at Harvard looking for the CIA link.
"Al Larkin told me that the guy that led me to get fired from Harvard was a man named Herbert Chanoch Kelman… Does that name mean anything to you?" Leary asked.
I called Larkin the next day and he admitted that he'd been investigating Leary's involvement with CIA and Harvard since the MKULTRA story had local interest. (Harvard is in Boston.)
"I was in the process of pursuing a number of different avenues," Larkin said, " pursuing the possibility of some of Timothy's money coming through one of the organizations established as a front for CIA money I talked to him about it at that time and he said he had no knowledge of it, although the time span of the two things did coincide.
"I was particularly interested in a project Leary did at the Concord Reformatory, since it was very similar to some of the projects funded by the CIA. It did fit into the proper frame… I was unable to get any records on the Concord Project. I did talk to one of the people who was very closely involved with the MKULTRA research in Massachusetts. I mentioned Leary's name, and the guy almost became livid, as any good CIA patriot should. He said, 'We would never have given anything to him!'"
Larkin said the man's name was Dr. Robert Lashbrook who was number two in the MKULTRA experiments which consumed tens of thousands of unwitting human guinea pigs, causing at least one known death to a non-volunteer victim. Lashbrook was given immunity to testify before Kennedy's congressional committee investigating the CIA's mind control operations.
I relayed to Larkin the details of my interview with Leary. If what Leary had told me was true, it looked like the CIA, then, had made a large contribution to the creation of the Psychedelic Sixties.
"Let me ask you a couple of questions which really shouldn't be repeated," Larkin said. "What is Leary's financial condition right now?"
"I haven't the slightest idea. Why?
"The reason I raised it, he mentioned, two months ago, that he was writing a piece for The New York Times on this topic. He said that he hoped to sell it to The Times on the MKULTRA project.
"I never saw the piece, and I talked to him a few weeks ago and he said, he was talking to someone at Esquire about it. He said, 'I think I'm going to write a piece for them on this, cause I need the money…"
"Then it occurred to me," Larkin said, "that Timothy Leary, who had very little interest in my initial questions about his involvement, suddenly had become interested and may have seen it as a way to establish some credibility for his writing about this. In other words, he realized when The Times didn't want his piece, so he had to enhance his credibility somehow and maybe do it by dropping a hint to you, and then suggesting that you call me. I have a message here that says that I am to call him. He may be wanting to tell me to call you. You see what I'm driving at?'
I told Larkin that I'd played my interview with Leary to several of his friends who all concluded that, because of the contradictions, Leary was not telling the truth. One of the things he said on the tape was "FBI" when he clearly meant to say "CIA."
"He said that you (Larkin) found out that this doctor named Herb Kelman had been responsible for him getting thrown out of Harvard. Leary said that you found out Kelman was a CIA man. Is that true?"
"No. No.,," Larkin said. "He's misinterpreting what I said. Leary told me that Kelman led the fight to get him thrown out of Harvard. I found out that Kelman got a thousand dollars from the Human Ecology Fund, a CIA fund. So, I called Kelman and said to him 'what was your role in the removal of Leary?' He admitted that he played a role in it and he said, 'I didn't like what Leary was doing. I was opposed to human experimentation. I was opposed to giving drugs to undergraduates and I knew that he was doing it.'
"Kelman said, 'I was a young researcher then, and I didn't carry a lot of weight but I was outspoken. And when the furor died down somewhat I continued to argue for it to reemerge.'
So I said to Kelman, "What about this money?'"
Kelman said that he didn't know the Human Ecology Fund was a fund set up by the CIA and he was very up-front about it – he said that he had been editing a book for a small private organization and before it could go to print he had to bring the authors together in Cambridge and the organization which was sponsoring the book didn't have any more money and he needed the thousand dollars and he went to talk to a guy named Edgar Schein…"
Schein was one of the leading investigators during the Korean war into the 'brainwashing' hoax. Schein knowingly worked for the CIA.
"He'd told Kelman to go to the Human Ecology Fund and he wrote a letter for him… but no one ever asked Kelman to do anything. According to him, the book had nothing to do with the areas which would interest the CIA, it seems to me to be obviously one of those small cover projects they had to do to maintain their credibility in academia… So Leary's interpretation of the thing is a little bit more… hardcore…"
For some months that's where this story stood – unfinished, in limbo. I didn't even bother to transcribe the interviews. Then the first coincidence – certain proof of the cryptocracy's ongoing Agit Prop operation: A cell mate of Leary's was located. He said that when Leary came back from his escape he was very frightened.
"In Vacaville, he had one of the best positions. He was working in the education wing. He was making it with a pretty little blonde nurse… He was writing and doing meditation, but he was running scared. He was scared behind the Panthers in there… The way the CIA got Tim out of Algeria was they told him that Eldridge Cleaver wanted to kill him, that's why Tim left…"
This cell mate of Leary's wanted to be identified only as Yogi. He said that Leary had some "heavy" friends in prison who protected him.
"But he let everyone down. It's a well known fact that they took him out at night – the Feds did. Before he was testifying, they had Federal guards with him at all times. In the end he was in protective custody… When he was in prison no one knew he was a stool pigeon. He was a hero. He was living on his rep that he was the head Boo-Hoo of the acid freaks. That was enough to protect him by the heavy hippies who looked up to him.
"All of a sudden they took Timmy out at night. "Usually, when you go somewhere, you go by bus, but the Feds took him by car. They stayed with him at all times. That's when we began to suspect that he was working with the Feds…
"He still was Chief Boo-Hoo to most in prison. But then the word came down that he was testifying on Weathermen, and he even gave up his own lawyer and turned over the people who helped him get out of the country. He was giving out who was who in the groups, what they were doing, smuggling and narcotics… He gave up all that… they'd take him down to custody and they'd talk to him. Obviously, they told him, 'If you want to get out of here… if you don't give us what we want to know, we're going to make sure that you die in prison!'
"It was too much for him. I know that they were coming regularly to make him turn over on his own daughter. He could have gone out in style. He could have helped a lot of people… Then everybody found out he was a fucking weak punk.
"I don't know anyone who really respects him. That's why I told you the other night, I told you to tell him about me and see how he reacts. He knows me as Yogi, the guy who brought him the note from Nick (Sands?) in San Francisco. He used to go to the 3HO Yoga classes there…
"That was a beautiful day. Ram Das came and all of us was there. Tim didn't even have enough class to show up. He said that Ram Das was a child molester and he didn't even want to talk to him…"
"Could Leary have been working with the CIA or FBI during the whole 6time he was in prison," I asked Yogi. "Before his escape, and before he came back to prison?"
"He sure could," Yogi said. "He had to be something because to turn over like that, with the rep he had with all the beautiful people… I know he got a lot of people started on the spiritual path. He helped a lot of people get into meditation and yoga… He gained a lot of good karma for that, but he's going to need it.
"I really felt bad that someone who got so many people on the spiritual path was so weak in the end. I can't judge. I still got that joint consciousness. He's a rat and that's that. Let God take care of him. He had to do it the weak way. All my partners and all the people I knew in the joint, everyone felt the same way…"
I transcribed no tapes. Yogi's testimony was just hearsay – the talk of a convict. The second coincidence came: I was introduced to Leary's cell mate in Folsom. Again this man doesn't want to be identified. Both men said that they would, however, come forth to back me up if I ever needed them.
This second former convict has also gone straight and wants to protect his name. He was then the head of his own construction company and was making more money honestly, than he ever made at crime.
This man, we'll call him Ray, spoke of the period when Tim could not be found by his wife, Joanna. He said that one day Leary was returned to their cell with his head shaved and blue lines painted on it.
"Tim got just about the whole works. He was a different type of case than I was. They felt that they could use him a lot more than someone like me. I was an unknown, but if they could turn someone like Leary around and get him to do what he's doing right now, in fact, he'd be very useful to the government… the high priest had to be de-throned.
"Tim is a very fascinating person. There is only a handful of people who did what he did – who took a whole generation and turned them on. That was the challenge to the Feds, if they could find out how his mind worked, and use him…
"Well, one day he comes back to the cell with lines on his head. They were actually very precise measurement lines. His head was shaved and it was marked with all these careful, precise blue lines.
"I asked him what the lines were for. He told me that they were going to give him a lobotomy. They were going to stick ice picks into his brain. He told me that it was really going to be great. They had him completely brainwashed. He said, 'this is going to be the greatest thing. All my life I've been going through this, you get up, you get down, but now, ' he said, 'I'll be just as smart as I am, but I won't have to feel emotions any more. Wow!'"
"You think they broke him?" I asked.
"Totally controlled him. They gave him a lot of those fright drugs. They kept him in solitary. They did everything they could to break his mind, and they succeeded. Look at him now…"
"Suddenly he tells me he worked for the CIA for years," I said.
"Well, that may be one of their defenses. In other words, by admitting what you did, nobody believes it and it makes you look ridiculous. When they're done with you – and I've been through a lot of their drugs and tortures – at a certain state, you're really like a zombie. You're so conditioned chemically that a guy isn't even aware of what's happened. Leary bought the whole thing. They really have gotten good at it. You know, nobody is going to believe us…"
Then they didn't, but will they now?
"Leary never would have gotten out of prison," Ray said. "He'd either bend or they'd break him. No matter how sympathetic you may be, to really understand the situation, you have to go through it yourself. You say, well they couldn't break me. I wouldn't do it. It just couldn't happen.
"But believe me, we are like just so much putty and clay and we can just stand so much, and when they're finished with the mind control, it's almost impossible to tell…"
Still Ray's was just the testimony of another ex-con. While the testimony of his prisonmates was merely hearsay, at least they appeared to believed what they said. Leary, it seemed, believed nothing.
Even after 20 years these questions remain: Did Leary work for the CIA in the 1960's. If he did, why did he admit it? Was he proselytizing LSD during the '60's under CIA direction? Was Leary's escape from Vacaville, allegedly with the help of Cubans and Weather Underground, encouraged by the U.S. government so that Leary could later 'finger' those who helped him? Was his sojourn in Algeria with Cleaver, and in Switzerland, then Afghanistan also CIA directed.
One CIA document was dated 1 November 1963. It was headed:" MEMORANDUM FOR THE RECORD. SUBJECT: International Federation for Internal Freedom (IFIF), ALPERT, Richard, Ph.D., LEARY, Timothy F., Ph.D., Drugs, Mind Affecting, Agency Policy Regarding."
The last two paragraphs of that memo, now thirty-three years old, remain unanswered: The CIA Security Office (OS) "has not been able to determine whether any staff employees of the Agency have engaged in the unauthorized taking of any of these drugs, but there is information that some nonagency groups, particularly on the West Coast, have taken these drugs in a type of religious experimentation. While as previously mentioned there are no staff employees involved, some individuals known to have taken the drugs have sensitive security clearances and are engaged in classified work.
"Any information concerning the use of this type of drug for experimental or personal reasons should be reported immediately to Chief/SRS/OS (Office of Security) with all specific details furnished. In addition, any information of Agency personnel involved with the International Federation for Internal Freedom, or with Drs. ALPERT or LEARY, or with any group engaging in this type of activity should also be reported."
The memo was signed, "Chief/SRS/OS."
No follow-up was furnished in the CIA MKULTRA documents. This document is clearly an in-house query from the security division chief who was worried about what the other divisions of the CIA might be doing. Non-Agency groups meant contract agents or front groups. Staff employees are high-ranking CIA personnel who take their orders, usually, direct from Langley. The CIA operates on a "need to know" basis, with no individual knowing anything more than the minimum he or she needs to know to perform his or her job. Various agencies within the CIA, often the Office of the Deputy Director of Plans, then Richard Helms, were taking matters into their own hands with direction from above. Since the Chief of Security was so concerned, there must have been good reason. And what about Leary's own statement's that he wittingly followed the directions of the CIA in the 1960's? When former CIA Director, Admiral Stansfield Turner was asked whether or not the CIA supported Timothy Leary or gave Leary LSD, he replied only, "The CIA gave it to those who were doing the research."
Was Leary's involvement with promoting private enterprise in outer space, and especially his involvement with the L-5 Society also CIA inspired? A phone call to an old friend who'd once been a director of the L-5 Society revealed that it been about to fold for lack of subscriptions in 1080, when a retired military officer with known intelligence connections sent an unsolicited donation of $10,000 to save it from failure. He said he's wondered himself about the L-5 Society's Director, Carolyn Hanson who'd been with Leary when he visited me. I asked Ms. Hanson to tell me what her political ideas were and she evaded my question. I asked her another question and she was very cryptic. Leary had introduced her as "the smartest woman in the world," and she blushed and demurred, "Well, one of the smartest."
A few years later, in the mid 80's, Leary was writing books dictated by voices he heard, he said, coming from outer space.
Now knowing what we know about mind control, one has to ask if Timothy Leary was himself a victim of the same cryptocracy he once owed his allegiance to, like so many other government employees.
While LSD was banned by the federal government on October 6, 1966, it has made its comeback among the young as the recreational drug of choice. As if to prove its own failure in the "War on Drugs" a 1993 survey made by the federal government showed a substantial upswing in the use of acid by the nation's eighth-graders. The report recorded the highest level of LSD use by high school seniors since 1985 and it said the teen-agers perferred LSD to cocaine.
In 1966, most of the significant legal research projects into psychedelic drugs were officially closed. Only a small band of researchers continued to inch forward in their research, hoping to regain the government's blessing – and grants – to use it on human subjects. In 1991 they won approval from the Food and Drug Administration for the study of LSD's effect on 60 drug addicts.
According to the San Jose Mercury News, Richard Yensen, one of the researchers who was about to conduct an officially sanctioned study, said he believes that using humans to assesss LSD is essential because, "it is very hard to ask a rat what is happening in its consciousness."

2020.11.27 20:46 Brothanogood Roblox IPO: 5 things to know about the tween-centric gaming platform

Roblox Corp. is planning an initial public offering amid strong momentum as millions of tweens and teenagers are glued to their mobile devices during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The San Mateo, Calif.-based gaming platform features a variety of “3-D digital worlds” that are built by users and developers, providing virtual communities where users can play with friends. Roblox RBLX acknowledged in its official paperwork with the Securities and Exchange Commission that it is experiencing a huge boost from users isolated during shelter-in-place policies related to coronavirus, but seeks to appeal to a wider, and older, audience to continue growing when things go back to “normal.”
Roblox originally filed for an IPO on Nov. 19, after disclosing a month before that it was beginning the process. Roblox said in the original filing that it sought to raise up to $1 billion; this figure is typically a placeholder that will be updated in later filings, but suggests a larger fundraising goal than the typical large IPO, which uses a $100 million target.
Roblox expects to trade under the ticker “RBLX” on the New York Stock Exchange. There are six banks underwriting the deal, led by Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, and J.P. Morgan. 2020 has been a good year for IPOs with the Renaissance IPO ETF IPO up 94% for the year to date, compared with a 12% gain in the S&P 500 index SPX , and a 35% rise in the tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite Index COMP .
Here are five things to know about Roblox as it becomes a public company.
  1. If you don’t have tweens, you’ve probably never heard of it
If you haven’t heard of Roblox, you probably haven’t been around a pre-teen much in recent years. The company said that more than half of its 31.1 million daily users are younger than 13 years old. Back in 2018, the service claimed about 12 million daily users.
Since most online accounts require users to be at least 13, the company has faced criticism for inappropriate content on its service. In the prospectus, Roblox said it uses a human review team to screen content and has reviewed more than 68 million “assets” in the first nine months, and has “had a human respond” to more than 9 million customer inquiries within 10 minutes on average. The company hopes to appeal to older users and to retain current users as they grow up.
“We ultimately aim to be a brand that serves all ages,” the company said in its SEC filing. “An early sign of what is possible: our 17 to 24-year-old user age group grew faster than our core under 13 age group in the nine months ended September 30, 2020.”
  1. COVID-19 generated a huge boost of traffic
When the pandemic hit, Roblox growth exploded as tweens and others who were sheltering in place flocked to the online community. The number of daily users surged 82% over the past 12 months and the average user was on the service for more than two-and-a-half hours a day.
“We have experienced rapid growth … given our users have been online more as a result of global COVID-19 shelter-in-place policies,” the company said.
In the first nine months of 2020, Roblox said DAUs, or daily average users, grew to 31.1 million from 17.1 million in the same period during 2019. Year-over-year, Roblox reported 17.6 million DAUs in 2019, compared with 12 million in 2018.
Similarly, total hours spent on Roblox more than doubled to 22.2 billion in the first nine months of 2020, compared with 10 billion in the same period in 2019. Year-over-year, users spent 13.7 billion hours on Roblox in 2019, versus 9.4 billion in 2018.
  1. Its revenue is derived from the model that has Epic Games fighting Apple
Roblox makes money by using a virtual currency called “Robux” that users buy to upgrade avatar and make purchases, but that developers also use within the platform. That means Roblox pays a lot of money to third-party distributors like Apple Inc. and Alphabet Inc. at a time when those practices are being disputed by others.
Back in August, the popular videogame “Fortnite,” made by Epic Games, was banned from Apple’s AAPL App Store and Alphabet’s GOOG GOOGL Google Play stores because Epic tried to work around the 30% cuts the companies were getting from in-game purchases, and loudly disputed the practice.
Roblox said it also pays 30% of its one-time purchases to both Apple and Google when they are made on the respective stores. The company said for the first nine months of 2020, 34% of its revenue came from Apple store purchases and 18% from Google store purchases. That’s compared with 30% of revenue from Apple store purchases and 18% from Google store purchases in 2019.
The company said its bookings surged 171% to $1.24 billion in the first nine months of 2020, compared with $458 million in the same period in 2019. From 2018 to 2019, bookings grew 39%. If defines bookings as “sales of our virtual currency which we record as deferred revenue and then recognize that revenue over the estimated average lifetime of a paying user.”
Booking per DAU rose to $39.93 in the first nine months of 2020 from $26.75 in the year-earlier period.
In a nod to COVID-19’s part in the surge, the company said: “We do not expect these activity levels to be sustained, and in future periods we expect growth rates for our revenue to decline.”
  1. As revenue has soared, losses have widened
While Roblox reported a 68% surge in revenue for the first nine months of 2020, losses for the period more than quadrupled.
Roblox reported revenue of $588.7 million and a loss of $203.2 million in the period, compared with $349.9 million in revenue and a loss of $46.3 million for the first nine months of 2019. Roblox reported revenue of$488.2 million and a narrower loss of $86 million in 2019, compared with revenue of $312.8 million and a loss of $97.2 million in 2018.
The biggest culprits in 2020’s widening loss were payments to content developers and administration fees connected with the run up to the IPO.
“Developer exchange fees track closely with our overall bookings performance as more users on the platform and Robux purchased by our users drives more Robux earned by developers and creators,” the company said in its filing.
Those fees soared 190% to $209.2 million in the first nine months of 2020 compared with the same period a year ago.
In the same period, general and administrative fees soared 125% to $64.9 million. While $27.7 million of that increase was due to higher personnel costs including stock-based compensation expenses, the company also cited “an increase in headcount in our finance, accounting, people, IT and legal functions associated with our anticipated public offering.”
  1. Early investors get a big upper hand
The IPO is for Class A shares, which get one vote per share, as opposed to Class B shares that get 20 votes per share and are convertible to Class A shares.
Those Class B shares belong mostly to early investors, the first of which were Altos Ventures and First Round Capital. Altos has a 23.9% stake in the company with 114.3 million shares and First Round has a 7% stake with 33.6 million shares.
Later investors include Meritech Capital Partners and Index Ventures. Meritech owns an 11.6% stake at 55.3 million shares, while Index has an 11.1% stake at 53.1 million shares.
Tiger Global Management, which entered the picture in 2018, has an 8.2% stake at 39.3 million shares.
Earlier in the year, Andreessen Horowitz led a $150 million investment round in the company but doesn’t even break into the list of “greater than 5%” stockholders.

2020.11.26 15:51 Yosh1220 Slavemaster: Porn: Part 2

I am not a Christian but this verse describes what i am about to show you perfectly.
Thimoty 6: 9 Those who want to get rich fall into temptation and a trap and into many foolish and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction.
In my last post I have talked about the scientific harms of porn in relation to addiction and depression, but porn is so much more and does so much more. I like to call it the gates of hell, once you get hooked into it and dont get out you will end up in a very bad place. In my last post i talked about how it numbs your brain and you have to watch more and harder stuff to feel any pleasure. This is a path that i want to explore further with you in this post.
Now to everyone whos watched porn on here, think about how your taste in porn was at the beggining and how it changed over time, did it get extremer? weirder? more hardcore? Maybe not for you but checking out other subs you can see numerous people saying that the more they watched the more twisted their taste got. Someone commented on the last post Slavemaster porn 1 that i am mistaking cause and action, that the people struggling with it are sick to begin with and thats why they started watching it in the first place. Now that doesnt make any sense because as i told you backed up with scientific evidence that Porn fits into the addiction framework and by watching it all you will sooner or later need to progress in the intensity of the material to get any rush out of it. So the argument that porn is good because it prevents those people from actually living out those fantasies, no its the opposite, most people only start to get twisted by their excessive consumption of porn. Now here is an example of something somewhat extreme, this of course doesnt apply to it but its a case of what can happen, this link shows the search results of user 927 Aol, leaked search historys, Here you can see how it starts out already a bit unnormal but in line and how with time his taste gets weirded and more twisted and finally illegal and deviant.
https://www.businessinsider.com/aol-user-927s-entire-sordid-search-log?r=DE&IR=T
Now some of you would say you cant make such claims only by checking out nofap subs or one extreme example, show us proof. Of course you have every right to say that and i will happily show you proof. Teens who watch porn are reported to commit more sexual violent acts also knowns as TDV, Teen dating violence.
Violent pornography exposure was associated with all types of TDV, though patterns differed by gender. Boys exposed to violent pornography were 2-3 times more likely to report sexual TDV perpetration and victimization and physical TDV victimization, while girls exposed to violent pornography were over 1.5 times more likely to be perpetrate threatening TDV compared to their non-exposed counterparts.
https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/31309432/
It also makes you more accepting towards rape myths and sexual deviancy in general, less sensitive and twists your brain into accepting sick things, like rape fantasies and violent sexual accts, as shown in the following studies.
A positive d indicates exposure to pornography had negative outcomes, while a negative d indicates positive consequences in relation to sexual deviancy, sexual perpetration, intimate relationships, and rape myth outcomes. As can be noted, no negative d's emerged in the current meta-analysis, thereby indicating the consistent negative effect of exposure to pornography in each of these four areas.
https://citeseerx.ist.psu.edu/viewdoc/download?doi=10.1.1.525.9208&rep=rep1&type=pdf
Here it shows how even rape gets subcouncisly accepted.
The present study was conducted to learn more about the association between fraternity membership and attitudes and behaviors associated with sexual aggression against women. A male experimenter took digital pictures of all of the images of women displayed in the rooms of 30 fraternity men and 30 non-fraternity men on a residential, small, liberal arts college campus. The men also filled out a rape myth acceptance scale. A total of 91 images were found in the form of posters, “pin-ups,” advertisements, or computer screen savers. It was found that fraternity men had significantly more images of women displayed in their rooms and that the images were rated significantly more degrading than those in the rooms of non-fraternity men. Fraternity men were found to have significantly higher scores on a rape supportive attitude scale (RSA). RSA scores were positively related to the amount of degradation in the images found in men's rooms. The possible purposes and consequences of the display of degrading sexual images are discussed.
https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s11199-005-7136-6
Now we can go a step further and see that the most common thing amongst serial killers is porn. Now almost every one of those murderes says that porn had a massive effect into lowering their guilt and hesitation in commiting the horrible acts they did. They dont have a reason to lie about this and even if, these people dont really knew each other but everyone of them said the same thing about pornography.
There is also a video of Ted Bundy talking about how porn affected him. https://youtu.be/tfwJeHtrWNI
Okay so then there is one big counter argument: Sexual crimes actually decreased. But here is the catch, the less it got the thighter security and tracking technology got. Saying that porn prevents crimes from happening is ignorant considering the evidence i provided, the only reason why these crimes decreased is because its harder to commit them without getting catched.
The term teen has been on top lists in pornography searchings and if you think about the actual meaning of this its sickeing. People get aroused by the thought of a barely legal person being sexually displayed and who knows where it goes from on there.
But this begs the question again: Why all of this? Why would anyone want this to happen? If i had the answers I would tell you but i am trying to figure out the truth aswell.

2020.11.25 20:24 Dead_Man_Talking117 The Ballad of Cuz... A Cautionary Tale

I have a cousin who is 2 weeks older than me. As kids we grew up pretty close to each other. Our families spent holidays.. Vacations and weekends together. We slept over each other houses all the time. Me.. My brother.. And Cuz. Before I get to the tale... I want to impress on everyone that my Aunt and Uncle were really good people. They were always kind to me and funny and generous.
Cuz was an all around athlete. He excelled in every sport. He was scouted by several pro baseball teams. I actually watched him make an unassisted TRIPLE play ! He always had money.. Too much for a kid.. My brother and I got allowances and did jobs for our bucks. Cuz got money from Uncle for doing nothing. His older sisters did all the chores. He was the Golden Boy. My uncle was an avid sports nut.. Any sport.. All day. It was literally the only thing he would watch. So Cuz was his wet dream of what a son should be. But being a spoiled kid.. Didn't really prepare him for the harsh realities of adulting. In our senior year of H.S. the friggin New York Yankees scouted him ! They offered him a tryout for their "farm team" . He turned up his nose at the idea of playing anywhere except the Big Show. So new plan. He's going to go to college and become a pro golfer ! He got accepted into a great school in Florida.. Where he studied underwater basket weaving and advanced finger painting. Aunt and Uncle bought him a tasty little sports caconvertible.. Paid his insurance. Then he heads down to Florida. They rent him an apartment.. Because dorms were beneath him. He got a couple hundred bucks per month for his walking around money. His parents paid all the bills for the apartment..plus his tuition and school expenses. He is killing it his freshman year. Grades are great. Professors love him. The golf team loves him. Aunt and Uncle kinda have to take his word for it.. Because he's soooo busy.. All the time. He can't come home for breaks. He barely speaks to them on the phone ( late 70s.. So no cell phone.. No texting). Finally.. The end of freshman year.. He's been working his butt off and Aunt and Uncle are stoked to finally see the results of all his hard work. But he can't come home for summer either.. Special golf camp or something? They decided to contact the school directly because they need to pay next semesters tuition. Then the bottom drops out. The school has no idea who Cuz is ! No one here by that name. Turned out...Cuz dropped all his classes after the first few days. Just kept all the money his parents had paid. But wait ! There's more ! He's been renting out extra space in his apartment to a couple of like minded idiots. So the apartment my Aunt and Uncle pay everything for is now a flop house. Cuz works part time in a liquor store. Nobody has even a guess where he spent his money.. He had no bills...an allowance..plus the money he took back from tuition. All gone.
So they cut him off and he comes home. Aunt and Uncle are pissed and humiliated. He gets a job at a sports bar and actually works his way up over a couple years. I haven't seen or spoken to him in years by now. But there's always weird stories about him going around the family. First there's a fiancée who lives in South America. We've all met her. But again.. This is years before the internet. So they write and talk a couple times a year. They plan to get married after she graduates. Except.. She had no idea about any of this. They knew each other in H.S. when she was an exchange student.. Had gone out for a minute.. We met her at a family BBQ. They actually had only written once or twice over the past 5 years. But now the really weird shit is coming out. Cuz .. Who was a very good looking guy.. Has never really had any type if real relationship. This smart.. Handsome and yes.. Heterosexual guy has never really dated. Then he gets arrested. For peeping in to a 13 year old girls window. Apparently..she wasn't the first. He'd been chased away after a couple "misunderstandings". He was just "looking in the bushes for his cat".. Stuff like that. My sister found all this out several years after the fact. None of us has seen him in years now.
Then comes my father's 75th birthday. The entire family is there. At this point.. I haven't seen Cuz in more than 25 years. It was creepy A.F. I watched him have a conversation with his sister.. They sat next to each other on the sofa for 30 minutes or so... And NEVER made eye contact. They talked the whole time staring at the floor. My wife and then teen daughter both mentioned how handsome he was... And how creepy he came off. When we talked.. He was all about getting together.. Because family is important. Told my brother the same thing. But of course.. We never heard from him.. Ever again. But wait... There's more !
Finally.. After another decade or so. My sister calls me with the big news ! Cuz was just arrested again ! There's a shocker.. Was he peeping again? Nope. This time it was full on kiddie porn.. Tons of it. At around 50 years old.. The Superstar athlete.. The golden child... Was sentenced to prison for the rest of his life. Those creepy feelings he inspired in my wife and daughter were real. He was the perviest pervert who ever perved.
So young parents of Reddit.. Here's the lesson. If you give your child everything... They're going to get the idea that they can have anything they want. Spoiled kids become entitled adults. And when some people believe that they're entitled to whatever they want... Well... This is what happens.
Be well everyone

2020.11.24 06:28 Locke_Wiggin Dying Alabama man preparing to ‘meet his maker’ confesses to 25-year-old cold case murder (Christopher Dailey, Huntsville, AL)

I wasn't familiar with this case before. Details (abridged) from the news article below.
Decatur officers were called April 26, 1995, to a wooded area off George Russell Road SW, where teens had stumbled upon Dailey’s body lying about 25 yards off the roadway.
“This was a 17-year-old girl and a 17-year-old boy out hunting leaves for the girl’s leaf collection,” a Decatur police spokesperson told the Decatur Daily at the time.
Dailey had been killed by a single gunshot wound to the head.
About 90 minutes later, the victim’s 1983 Toyota Tercel was found partially submerged in the Tennessee River. News reports at the time of the discovery indicated that a rock had been placed on the accelerator.
Despite an extensive investigation, no suspects ever emerged in the case. Over the decades, the case was revisited multiple times, to no avail.
“There was nothing else to follow up on,” Mukadden told al.com. “When it gets like this, you’re hoping something else will come up.
“It usually doesn’t occur like this.”
The New York Times reported that Whited called the police switchboard on Wednesday and was transferred twice before his call landed with Mukaddam.
There was one problem. Whited could not remember the date of the killing, or even the year in which it took place.
Investigators took a chart of all homicides in Decatur stretching back to the 1980s and, using a description of the location provided by Whited, were able to connect his story to the killing of Dailey.
Whited, who was 28 years old when Dailey was slain, was also able to point out where he had submerged the man’s vehicle in the river, AL.com reported.
Mukaddam told WAAY in Huntsville that Whited gave investigators his alleged motive for the crime but declined to say what it was. Whited and Dailey did not know each other before the shooting.
The men met just moments before Dailey was slain, the detective said.
...According to Belser, Whited has stage four lung cancer.
Mukaddam said Whited’s failing health appears to have prompted his sudden call to police.
“He’s terminally ill and my opinion is (that) he’s going to meet his maker soon,” the detective told WAAY. “He was ready to confess and close all the doors and give the victim’s family some closure.”

2020.11.23 02:05 Vule777 Why Madagascar 2 is a perfect movie.

I just watched Madagascar 2 and I would like to share my opinion on why Madagascar 2 is the perfect movie (go easy on me please, amateur here).
Madagascar 2 has a similar premise to it's prequel, the protagonists get stranded in an unknown location and they have to adapt to it while also trying to solve their insecurities, but the second movie takes the premise and just annihilates it.
The movie begins with the introduction of Alex's father, Zuba, and baby Alex back in the savannah. From this we learn how he got to New York in the first place. Hunters lured him away while his father was fighting, after the fight, Zuba realised what had happened and started chasing down after the hunters who had kidnapped Alex. After getting shot in the ear by the hunters, Zuba falls of their truck and Alex falls of it into the river, and after Zuba comes to his senses again, he starts chasing the truck again,thinking that Alex is there, but Alex was in the river at this point and he had no idea. This entire sequence shows us the love of a parent toward their child, the dedication, strength and will of a parent when their child is in danger, the unbreakable bond between a parent and a child. This sequence truly is amazing, and luckily it isn't the only one.
Then the movie cuts to the present where our protagonists (Alex, Marty, Melman, Gloria and the penguins) are getting ready to go home to New York on a plane that they had rebuilt, but as they're getting in, King Julian joins them and they have to accept it, beacuse he's the self proclaimed king.Once they're on the plane they finally start to fly, in charge of the plane are, of course, the penguins.
About a good like hour maybe less on their flight, the plane starts crashing and it lands in a savannah, but not any savannah, they land in the savannah where Alex is actually from, as shown in that opening sequence. At first the crew don't really seem to be welcome to the savannah, but when Zuba discovers that that's actually Alex, he becomes extatic, beacuse he thought that his child had been killed by those hunters. The happiness and joy in Zuba's eyes in that moment are indescribable, the reunion of a child with their long lost parent is the most beautiful thing in the world.
As the gang get accepted by everyone in their individual groups, they love it at first, but come to learn that it ain't that great, much like how a kid feels after starting school.
Alex is the first one to find this out. When Alex was doing the ritual thing where he has to fight one of his peers, the villain, Makunga tells him to pick the buffest, toughest, biggest lion he possibly could, so that he could become the Alpha and lead the savannah. This works since Alex can't fight, plus he thought it was a dance competition. Alex gets his ass handed to himself, and his father, the current Alpha, has to banish him from the savannah, but instead of doing that, he resides as Alpha and Makunga takes the spot and banishes Alex and his family. Now, through this entire thing, there was a huge misunderstanding between Alex and his father. Zuba thought that he was a king, which Alex was, he was the king of New York, and instead of fighting, he danced and the people cheered. This is where we realise Alex's insecurity: not being good enough to the person you look up to the most, in this case, your father. Not getting any encouragement and love from the people that you love, just beacuse they don't like what you do. This is one of the things that mostly teens have to deal with, and the movie handles it perfectly.
Now for Marty: When Marty first meets the other zebras, he finds out they're exactly like him. They way they talk, act, think, it's all the same. And at first, Marty loves this, but then later on when he's teaching the other zebras his zoo act, that he took forever to learn, he sees that every single zebra did it perfectly on their first try. This is when Marty realises that he isn't special and that others, just like him, can do it too. This is another problem teens have to deal with, the fear of being a mute, a no-one, just the average joe for the rest of their life. And Marty's problem gets resolved by Alex when he's looking for him in a see of zebras that all look the same, Alex successfully points Marty out. Why? Beacuse Alex knows Marty as a true friend, he teaches us that the outside doesn't matter, what matters is the inside, your personality, AKA : the real YOU!
And now it's Gloria's turn! Gloria has kind of a boring story here, but whatever it's amazing anyways. So basically Gloria finds a guy, which is a thing she wanted, but then learns that he's only into her because, and I quote: "she's big, she's chunky and she's plumpy". This message is kind of for girls only, but I found that it has 2 meanings. The first meaning is that you shouldn't stay with someone, or be with someone that sees you and treats you like an object. This is a beautiful message that's 110% true. The second meaning is actually the fear of a lot of people that they will never find their true love, since the hottest guy is into Gloria but she sees that he sees her as an object, but then Melman interferes and tells Moto Moto that if he was lucky as him that he would buy Gloria flowers every single day, that he would get her a bed and breakfast every single day and that he would cherish her for what an amazing personality she has, not her body. Speaking of, now it's time for Melman.
Melman's story is the most relatable one by far. He starts his carrer by getting the doctor title since he learns that there aren't any doctors there, and no one is better qualified than him. After having fun with being a doctor he hears that Gloria has a date (btw he's in love with Gloria) with the strong, big, plumpy, chunky Moto Moto. After hearing this he becomes really sad, which is understandable, since he has a crush on Gloria, he's sad and we sympathize. After King Julian gives him the advice of just being honest and telling her how he feels, he does just that and he gets the girl in the end. Melman's fear was that he will never find love, at all. This is something that a lot of people experience, including myself. The message of just doing it, and being brave, is the best message they could have gave us.
In the end everyone is redeemed; Alex saves his father and himself from being eaten by doing what he knows best - dancing, and his father finally accepts that his son maybe wasn't made to be a fierce, strong lion and that his passion was hiding somewhere else. Marty realises that he is special in his own way, just like everyone. Gloria dumps Moto Moto and sees that guys like Melman are the real deal, and Melman gets the courage to confess his love, which works out perfectly.
The penguins and King Julian were here for comedic effect, so nothing much to say there.
Overall, Madagascar 2 is the perfect movie and gets a 5+/5. Thanks for reading.

2020.11.22 15:14 AligatorTears A Slight Attitude Adjustment

I've been seeing a lot of posts about how you've just got to have a perfect body, great job, approach a million women, become confident, tell jokes but don't be a funny guy, escalate, no not like that, utterly transform your life so that women will like you but don't look like to are doing anything to empress women, approach women in line at the grocer, on the bus, outside public toilets, in their home... it's really a bit much. Let's take a moment to breathe. Okay. Here's my pointers of things I've learned over the years.

Women don't have a base ten ranking system for men. As far as women are concerned, you are either attractive enough to consider or you aren't. Where the line goes will vary by individual but you don't need to be an overachiever here and sometimes being too attractive can hurt your chances if she perceives you as out of her league.

2.
You don't need a great job. Having any kind of regular income and at least some aspirations will get you over most women's minimum. Unless you want to date a gold digger, you don't need a five figure income. If you have a car that runs and a roof over your head that you are paying for then you've passed the adult test.

3.
Ranking women by hotness isn't doing anything except hurting your confidence. If you are approaching somebody you think is a ten you're already putting her on a pedestal she didn't ask for. What is more functional is to ask two simple questions. Is she hot enough for a ONS? Is she hot enough to date? That's it. Decide what you want from her and if her looks meet your minimum criteria for that then approach her.

4.
There is plenty of theory to learn for refining your approach but you can't refine anything if you aren't approaching anybody. The most valuable thing you can learn is to become comfortable with failing. Go start a boring conversation about the weather with somebody and don't even try to close. Just let the conversation go wherever it goes and then say goodbye. After the interaction is over, think about what worked and what didn't work. Observe that you are still alive and approaching a stranger didn't cause you to die. Take a breath and approach somebody else. Search for opportunities in each interaction to apply what you learned from the previous one. Approach anybody at any time and just practice your small talk. Don't like small talk? Too bad. Get good at it and learn how to get to the big talk.

5.
Once you know what talking to strangers is like and have a few theories of your own for what seems to work, then you can start looking at what has worked for other people. There's also a whole lot of science on this topic. Type "attraction" into Google Scholar and you will find literally thousands of peer reviewed academic articles on stuff that has been legitimately proven to work. This isn't the nineties. This research is mainstream now and readily available for anybody who cares to look. At the bottom of this post I'll list some articles that I found in a five minute search as a starter. There are plenty more available for anybody who cares to look. If you can read even one article per day you'll at the very least start developing a bit of depth of knowledge and even if you don't apply any of it, you'll at least have something to talk about that isn't your job.

6.
Charisma is a skill. Some people are born gifted, and like most child prodigies they peak early and never learn to push through difficulties and plateau in their teens to never achieving anything meaningful with their gift. If you want to be a high charisma individual you have to actually work on it. If you want to be confident in something, practice it until you know you can do it easily. Charisma is no different. Charisma on Command is a great resource with hundreds of videos now as well as a paid option of Charisma University. YouTube tutorials will only get you so far though. Ideally, you want to find somebody who has actually worked on improving their charisma to be a mentor for you. Somebody who has worked on this will usually be happy to help somebody they see trying to follow the same path. In person, they'll be able to identify the areas you are struggling in and provide suggestions on how you can improve.

7.
Apply what you learn. Reflect on your application of learning and learn some more. It isn't enough to approach a lot of times, you actually need to be identifying something you can improve on every time and then working on that in subsequent interactions.

8.
Don't only do cold approaches. They are fine for practicing the skills you are working on but if you are following step five you'll quickly be aware that proximity, regular interactions and shared social groups are going to bump your success rate dramatically. So join some social groups that have women in them. Group fitness classes are an obvious one but poetry clubs and ball room dancing classes are also great opportunities to add a bit of depth to yourself and meet women. Here's a great trick: try making friends with the women you meet in these spaces and enlisting their help in the form of inviting you to parties or setting you up on blind dates with their single friends. You don't need to be making sexual advances on every woman you encounter. Meet people, expand your social networks and create situations where you are a person who can be easily vetted by a broader social network.

9.
Invest as much or as little of yourself into this as you like, but whatever you are doing, make sure it is meaningful and directly relates to your own life goals. There is more to life than having a girlfriend who other guys think is hot. Get clear about what you really want for yourself and then start taking steps toward that goal. There will always be an element of luck involved, but fortune favors the prepared mind.

Theories of Friendship: The author outlines some classic attraction models and provides the data used to confirm them.
The Role of Humor in Mate Selection: Can you imagine a more humorless title? Anyway, apparently girls prefer funny guys for long term relationships.
Interpersonal Attraction: Here, have an entire text book dedicated to the topic of attraction from a scientific perspective.
Similarity and Attraction.pdf): Why do we tend to be attracted to people we find similar to ourselves? And also why it is important to self disclose information to find common ground and similarities when talking to somebody new.
Peer Influence in Female Mate Selection: AKA, why you need to win over her friends.
Mate Selection: What women and men are really looking for in a long term partner

2020.11.19 21:30 Kaycee_2 A date night turns into a missing person and a runaway, now missing suspect ; This is Sage Smith's story.

Sage Smith is described as an energetic, charismatic, fashionable person who had a smile that could light up a room.
Sage was raised by their grandmother, Lolita “Cookie” Smith and lived in Charlottesville Virginia since the age of 12.
Sage went on to graduate High School in 2011, becoming the first person in the family to do so. Soon after graduation, they moved into their own apartment and invited 2 of their closest friends to live with them.
On the night of November 19th, 2012, they held a party, at their “Dollhouse Mansion”, which the trio did often. During the party a female arrived who wanted to fight one of Sage’s friends. Sage got involved in the altercation which involved a man, “J.S’ -the police were soon called. No charges or arrest were made from the altercation.
The next day, a roommate confirmed that Sage was at their apartment at 5 pm and at 5:40 pm, Sage said they were heading out and would be back later that evening. Their friend/roommate “A”, tried reaching Sage via cell phone later in the night when they had not returned home, but all calls went right to their voicemail. By morning, Sage had still not returned home and all calls were still going straight to voicemail which was unusual, Sage always had their phone. “A” contacted Cookie who immediately knew something was wrong. “A” also contacted a few friends seeking the whereabouts of Sage. Sage’s Stepsister “K.M” said she had seen them the night before on Main & 4th Streets- they were on the phone but was unsure of whom they were speaking to. The only thing she heard was Sage saying that they would be there in five minutes. But “where” is “there”? No one seems to know.
The Police Department did start an investigation in the disappearance of Sage Smith on November 22, 2012. They did subpoena cell phone records but in the meantime, some of Sage’s family members were able to guess their password and gain the records well before the police did.
Between the efforts of the family and the police, it was determined that the last known contact was Erik McFadden and that Sage’s phone had been turned off since their disappearance.
According to an acquaintance of Sage’s, McFadden was dating Sage secretly even though McFadden was in a relationship with a woman, “E.I.” and apparently McFadden was paying Sage to keep their relationship secret.
A search was conducted by the police department around the University of Virginia on November 24th. The same day, McFadden’s girlfriend contacted the police and let them know she had been unable to reach McFadden and asked for a welfare check on his apartment, the welfare check showed that McFadden was not home. Police eventually searched the apartment for some type of proof that Sage could have been there. The seized McFadden’s computer and a CVS receipt and for some reason, police believed that McFadden had left town. But, McFadden contacted his girlfriend and said he was in Washington D.C. The girlfriend told him the police needed to speak with him. He did call the police from New York City and told the police that he did have a relationship with Sage and that they were to meet the night she disappeared, but Sage never showed up at the Amtrak. A few months later, an eyewitness came forward and claimed that she had seen Sage at a local café the night they went missing, this café IS attached to the Amtrak, but no surveillance cameras were on site.
Additional searches of the area around the Amtrak Station, McFadden’s apartment, a railroad track, a sediment pond, social media accounts, and a landfill turned up zero evidence of where Sage is or what could have happened to them.
Nearly 7 months after Sage’s disappearance, investigators contacted the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children and uploaded their dental records in a national registry.
May 2018, almost 6 years later, investigators took another look at Sage’s apartment, it is not known if anything was found in regards to Sage and/or their disappearance.
And… Erik McFadden was officially reported missing by his mother in June of 2019, with an alleged last contact in 2014.
Sage’s case is now considered a homicide investigation as of December 2016.
Sage Smith went missing when they were 19 years old. Today they would be getting ready to turn 28. They was last seen wearing a black jacket, dark grey sweatpants, a black scarf and grey and black rain boots with pink and purple lining. They have been missing since November, 20, 2012, from Charlottesville, VA.
AMAB, TransgendeNon-Binary, Race: Black, Height: 5’8, Weight: 130 pounds, pierced eyebrow and ears.
If you have information on the whereabouts or disappearance of Sage Smith, please contact CUE Center for Missing Persons at 910-343-1131 or the tip line at 910-232-1687

2020.11.14 13:30 readingrachelx Housewife highlights/Daily shit talk - November 14th, 2020

NEW YORK
"An average week for Sonja Morgan, star of the Real Housewives of New York City, might begin with a nose job. They can do it now without any surgery at all: She says Ramtin Kassir just puts a little bit of filler to even out the bridge in profile. Her nose is a family heirloom — "The chicken face," she calls it. "It's a very signature family look." — charmingly but fiercely straight, in the manner of a young conservative politician. She looks nothing if not American.
Wednesday she's getting her eyebrows done with Victoria at the Julien Farel salon. She's been seeing Victoria for 30 years, back when she worked at the Frédéric Fekkai salon in Bergdorf Goodman. Then she followed her to Fekkai's salon at Henri Bendel. Remember Henri Bendel? But anyways she's at Julien Farel now, which is at the Regency. It is a gorgeous space, a symphony of beiges, but frankly, Victoria could be working at the bottom of the Mariana Trench and Sonja would plunge through miles of ocean to see her, because her eyebrows are sisters, not twins, but Victoria knows how to even them out.
There might be an interview, or a photoshoot, and on this particular Wednesday there might be both. There might also be a veneer cleaning. The rest of the week is still kind of up in the air. The doctor that did Morgan's nose on Tuesday wants to try something involving the exchange of nose cartilage, but Morgan still needs to Google it and do her research. (Morgan ultimately canceled the appointment.)
This year is Morgan's tenth as a cast member on the Real Housewives of New York City. The gist of the show is that a woman will convert certain aspects of her private life into public entertainment for the millions who watch the reality network Bravo (and the millions more who watch them online, follow them on Instagram, and tweet at them during tapings to demand explanations for their behavior) while also supporting a family and possibly working on additional business ventures.
Each Housewives cast assembles a sampler platter of rich, power-adjacent women of a particular American (or, at one moment in history, Australian) city, who then represent that city on the world stage in a kind of yearslong televised pageant. (Unlike the pageant system, there are no winners in the Housewives universe.) The women's backgrounds illustrate the particular ruling classes of each locality — Beverly Hills features a large contingent of Hollywood actors; many of the wives of New Jersey are of Italian descent. Many of New York's housewives have links to political oligarchy: the current Housewife and former countess Luann de Lesseps, the former Housewife and former Kennedy spouse Carole Radziwill. In 2006, Morgan separated from John Adams Morgan Jr., the great-grandson of J.P. Morgan and a descendent of presidents John Adams and John Quincy Adams. Four years later, she joined the show for its third season.
Before her marriage, Morgan was a model, who exported her classically American good looks abroad modeling Diesel denim in Milan. She made $150,000 a year working as a fit model, spending her time smoking cigarettes, and drinking Prosecco before returning to American shores to more or less do the same thing. The European people, according to Morgan, taught her how to look good and eat well and enjoy life. More specifically, they taught her to eat slowly at meals. "Enjoy the people you’re with in life," she says. According to Morgan, she and her ex-husband ate most of their meals "at home," presumably referring to their transcontinental network of real estate with outposts in Telluride, Provence, and New York City.
Say what you want about Sonja Morgan, but it is probably unoriginal and thus worth keeping to yourself. Her decade-long reality TV career is, if nothing else, a public library of human experiences, as Morgan's triumphs and non-triumphs are blended and presented as entertainment to an unrelenting audience. Not that Morgan needs for storylines: She is a hilarious presence on the show. At times she operates like a self-aware(-ish!) caricature of an Upper East Side socialite, hiring NYU undergraduates as interns to work around her townhouse, or getting too drunk prior to a gala, but she is a professional. She is ready to dance on a table if a table needs to be danced on, or openly divulge information of a carnal nature if it’ll make for a better interview. Morgan knows how to be consumed. She attempts to add spice wherever possible.
"People always want to know the crazy things I take," Morgan says. She is rummaging through some walk-in cupboard or nutrition wing of her Upper East Side townhouse, identifying her various supplements. Morgan is a radiant 56, having spent the last three decades fastidiously maintaining her appearance as a model and later as a television star. She credits this to an inside-out approach to beauty, literally, beginning with "poop pills." "If you're not going three, four times a day, you're not going to look great," she says. "Raquelle?" Raquelle is an intern. "What else do I take?"
Morgan takes calcium, magnesium, vitamins D and B12, prebiotics, probiotics, alkaline mineral water, electrolyte powder, collagen-based protein, cocoa powder — "It gets the endorphins going. You feel like you’re shopping. Or having sex!" — maca powder, taurine, guanine…
Morgan realizes this is a long list, so she edits to what she considers the essentials. “I can't stress enough this potassium, magnesium, calcium and [vitamin] Bs,” she advises. “And maca powder, which you can put in your shakes. And digestive enzymes. Very important.”
Also important: Sunday Riley Luna oil, applied at night to lure fresh cells to the surface of her skin, and SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic serum, which protects those cells throughout the day from the Upper East Side air pollution that threatens their radiance. Morgan is also refreshingly candid about her experiences with cosmetic surgery. She recently got a face and neck lift from Andrew Jacono, whose office sits nearly directly across the street from the Park Avenue Armory. "Over the years, I just got tired of the trout mouth," she says. "I did the threads twice, but it was just lifting the drapes. So I said, 'Let's do it' Even Dr. Kassir when I went to him yesterday, he was like, 'Well, we wish we did it,' you know? You've got to go to a different doctor for different things. Dr. Jacono does two face lifts a day."
Daunted by the cosmetic scrutiny that accompanies public life — or, perhaps, as a result of "just drinking a lot of water and getting plenty of rest!" — many Housewives adjourn a season of filming, only to return to the events of the next season with entirely different facial features, eyes distinctively more catlike, preposterously sized Hollywood lips where there once were Scottish-Welsh ones. Many of Morgan's features, including her jagged, patrician nose, look more or less the same that they did when joined Real Housewives of New York City in Season 3. Dr. Kassir has "been trying to do my nose jobs for years," Morgan says. The full monty, that is, in which the nose is renovated from within, as opposed to the molecule-sized monties she receives via injection. "But I told you, I like my nose. I've yet to meet a doctor who can give me a nose I like."
Beauty professionals of every stripe and order will approach Morgan about adorning her with their services. Morgan responds by tirelessly researching and isolating the procedure or style they do best, at which point she either decides to try it or wait until somebody even more talented comes along. She says Sharon Giese, a plastic surgeon whose office is just slightly farther from the Park Avenue Armory, is currently courting her about some belly laser. She’s thinking about it. Right now, the roster includes Jacono on the neck, Victoria Veytsman on her teeth, Kassir kind of on the nose, and dermatologist Rachel Nazarian for Botox and filler. “I can’t tell you how many people bring in pictures of Sonja,” Nazarian says. “They say, ‘Whatever she is doing, I want that.”
SALT LAKE CITY
"Heather Gay's friends may describe her as the "life of the party," but for her, it's just the role she has to play. "I consider myself an introverted extrovert that acts like the life of the party so everyone else feels more comfortable," the Real Housewives of Salt Lake City star tells Bustle, adding that she "kisses a lot of ass."
That's something you'll see her work on throughout the first season of RHOSLC, which premieres Nov. 11 on Bravo. "I really go along to get along until I kind of just get sick of it toward the end," Gay explains of what's to come, pointing to "some friction" with her costar and sometimes "sh*tty friend" Jen Shah, as well as the ongoing drama that "will never die" with her former BYU classmate Lisa Barlow. "Usually I would just put up with it because that's what I've always been trained to do. But I'm finally starting to say what I really want to say and how I really feel."
Heather is "totally single" after going through a difficult divorce with her husband of 11 years in 2015, though she says they now "get along fine." Her ex's grandfather was Howard Hughes' driver and inherited a large portion of the businessman's estate, which makes the Gays "Mormon royalty" who are "worth billions," Heather says. So it comes as little surprise that she's "always had an affinity for" RHONY's Sonja Morgan and relates to her divorce.
RHOSLC will show Heather navigating the dating world once again, and she has a clear idea of what she wants in her next relationship. "I'm looking for anyone who's completely inappropriate and damaged and under the age of 30," she jokes. "I look for love from the moment I wake up until the moment I go to bed. I just never find it."
Heather and her teen daughters — Ashley, 17, Georgia, 14, and Annabelle, 13 — are like "the four musketeers," she says. "They're 100% supportive and kind of caretake me as much as I'm their mom." With full custody, Heather is raising her kids on her own, while her ex "completely" financially supports them. "Our co-parenting is: I do the work and he pays the bills," she explains.
Don't expect to see much more of Heather's family on the show, though. She says her parents and siblings are "cool, wonderful people" who love and support her, but view her becoming a Housewife as a "betrayal of their faith." "They see endorsing this type of adventure as kind of patting me on the back, saying 'good luck on your way to hell,'" she says.
Though Heather was raised as a Mormon, she now describes herself as "Mormon-ish." She had a reawakening of sorts after her divorce and decided to stop attending church (which violates the compulsory attendance policy). "I've gotten to the point where I can't endorse doctrine that is completely opposite of how I feel, and I can no longer rationalize it " she explains, citing the Mormon church's stance on gay marriage and not allowing Black members to become priests. "How can I participate in a church that is absolutely discriminatory and says God loves all people, except for the gays? The doctrine is essentially that you can't go to heaven unless you're married, straight, and very, very righteous."
Still, Heather says she loves her community and believes it will always be a part of her identity.
After initially "doing photography and social media in exchange for Botox" because her ex-husband oversaw her budget, Heather began running the cosmetic medical practice Beauty Lab + Laser, which is now valued at over $20 million. She used money from her divorce settlement to join the company as a partner before totally buying out the business, which offers injectables, laser treatments, and skincare, among other services. Their goal is to allow women to invest in themselves without shame or stigma. "If you want giant lips, if you want a frozen face, if you want to be smooth like a dolphin without one shred of hair, we don't have any agenda other than to provide customer service," Heather explains.
Heather mostly posts about her friends and family on Instagram, though she says she's attracted her fair share of trolls. "The trolling is real, but it is nothing in comparison to the love and support," she says. "And it's very easy to ignore the trolls when you have such an amazing Housewife fan base, so I try to just focus on that."
She also uses social media to talk about social justice movements like Black Lives Matter. Pointing to the percentage of white women who voted for Trump in 2020, Heather believes it's more important than ever to use her position of privilege to stand up rather than look the other way — especially in Utah, which "doesn't have a super diverse" population.
Heather loves Britney Spears and considers her a national treasure. "I think her Instagram posts are simultaneously horrifying and endearing, and I think that is the type of human being that we need to cradle and treasure and empower because she's provided us with decades of entertainment. For her to now have a conservatorship is absurd. No one's beyond redemption and no one should be manhandled like that and micromanaged. I think if we let Britney free, we'll see what she can really do."
POTOMAC
ORANGE COUNTY
“I don’t even really know what [a ‘sloppy chihuahua] actually is,” Gina joked while rehashing the fight during an EXCLUSIVE interview with HollywoodLife, following last week’s episode. “I really am just a person that is very chill until I’m pushed to the limit. It takes a lot, but then I’m like, ‘OK, I’ve had enough of this.'”
Gina explained that Braunwyn “was quite sloppy all last year, which obviously I did not know [at the time that] she was struggling with [alcoholism]. I had no clue. I just thought she was [being] a sloppy chihuahua.” And Gina didn’t like the way Braunwyn revealed that she was an alcoholic during last week’s episode. Especially because it came immediately after Gina had heard that the mom of seven allegedly shaded her for buying a small, “sad” and “depressing” house. Plus, Gina was still upset about Braunwyn’s husband Sean sending her a “creepy” text message. So Gina felt Braunwyn was trying to overshadow Gina’s own feelings about the house diss.
Gina explained, “I think what everyone needs to understand is the way I was told, was not sitting down on a couch with a woman who is telling me that she has this issue [like she did with Emily Simpson]. She was just attacking me. I tried really hard to ignore her quite frankly because I heard her reeling me out with Shannon and I knew she was in a tornado and I really didn’t want anything to do with it and I felt like she was attacking me and I was just defending myself. And even when she said, ‘I’m 30 days sober, bitch!’, I was thinking in my head, ‘So what? You did a cleanse?’ Does that undo all the times you were drinking heavily last year?”
“But I always looked at Braunwyn with what she presented it as,” Gina continued, “‘I breastfed all of these kids, I finally weaned.’ It was her first year on the show and it was, ‘Oh, it’s her freshman year.’ She’s just partying. So I didn’t ever know that and I really didn’t get that until we were obviously outside. But then when we were outside, I thought we were talking about the fact that you’ve been non-stop launching this attack on me unnecessarily and then that’s when she wanted to [reveal her secret]. I’m not even her good friend. I didn’t even need to know that. So it was kind of — I think it was just really bad timing, but once she did tell me that, it is what it is. It’s what I said exactly. Look, I do have compassion for her. I’m proud of you if you really have a problem and you’re deciding to address that. That is very commendable, but I’m not going to compromise my integrity because you’re finally confronting this problem.”
Now that everything has happened and it’s aired on TV, Gina says she would have gone about the situation completely differently. To start, she wouldn’t have screamed at Braunwyn and called her a ‘sloppy chihuahua’. She told us, “I never would have yelled in a grown woman’s face — who just [was] 30 days sober after battling the majority of her life with alcoholism — that she’s sloppy and go get drunk. It’s horrible!”
Gina added, I have compassion about [her situation]. Who wants to see a woman going through that? But I wasn’t privy to any of that information.”
“After I watched last week’s episode, I did text her and I just said very simply, I just want you to know despite everything that’s going on I just want you to know I wish you and your family the best. I have been there last year. I’d say my family was in crisis mode. No matter what your issues are or how big your issues are, no matter how big or small your house is, it’s very hard. She texted me back and said, ‘Thank you very much. I appreciate it,’ and that’s it. The bottom line is if Braunwyn needed me as a friend, I would be there, but I think bottom line is, Braunwyn’s never considered me a friend and doesn’t have any interest in being my friend and that’s OK. It’s alright. It is what it is,” Gina added."
BEVERLY HILLS
"Teddi Mellencamp is joined by her dad John for their first-ever interview together on her “Teddi Tea Pod” podcast.
Teddi asks her musician father whether he’s happy she’s no longer on “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills”, to which he replies: “I’m terribly excited and happy that you are no longer part of the ‘Real Housewives’. I’ve never liked that you were on the ‘Real Housewives’.
“I tried to be supportive so I watched, but I can assure you I don’t watch it anymore.”
John continues, “I think that it’s great and I think that some of the women on the show are fantastic.
“But I don’t like people to know where I’m at, I don’t like people to know what I’m doing, I like to have privacy. That’s why I stick around my properties and don’t go anywhere."
“I don’t want to be a part of where everybody knows everything about everybody… I don’t know how you stood it,” he adds."
