2021.12.04 14:23 signalstonoise88 Let’s Talk: Low
I have always found Low an intriguing proposition: Alan Sparhawk and Mimi Parker, a husband and wife guitar and drum duo (with a revolving cast of bassists over the years) began their musical journey in 1993 as a reaction to the grunge and punk movements happening around them. Where their peers were competing to be the loudest, fastest, heaviest; Low took the contrarian approach, trying to play as slowly and quietly as possible. Often labelled “slowcore” (a label the band were not fond of) their music was defined by soft, minimalist guitar and drum parts, slow tempos and notably, Sparhawk and Parker’s beautiful vocal harmonies.
all links are to songs from each respective record
They put out three albums in this style on major-label subsidiary Vernon Yard recordings - 1994’s I Could Live in Hope, 1995’s Long Division and The Curtain Hits the Cast in 1996, before signing to Kranky and embracing a slightly more cinematic and varied style of songwriting - occasional string accompaniments, slightly more accessible song structures - across their next three records, Secret Name (1999), Things We Lost in the Fire (2001) and 2002’s Trust.
Signing to Sub Pop in the mid-00s, Low embraced experimentation, flirting with louder rock songwriting on 2005’s The Great Destroyer, utilising synthesisers and drum machines on 2007’s Drums and Guns and, more recently across a trio of records produced by BJ Burton, running headlong into digital production methods involving distorted noise and warped sound manipulation, all threaded around the same pretty melodies they’ve made their name with.
The band’s backstory is also fascinating, with the sound, lyrical outlook and mood often influenced heavily by Sparhawk and Parker’s Mormon faith, the cold Minnesotan winters of their native Duluth and Sparhawk’s own battles with mental health (in the band’s documentary film You May Need a Murderer, he admits to having spent a number of years in the mid-00s genuinely believing himself to be the Antichrist).
All in all, Low have been a much-revered mainstay in indie-rock circles since the 90s. Additionally, those otherwise unaware of their music may be familiar with “Just Like Christmas,” the lead track from their Christmas EP, which has made its way onto many alternative festive playlists in recent years.
So, to discuss: what was your introduction to Low; was it an instant hit for you, or a grower? Which era of their output do you favour and why? Is there a particular song that stands out to you in their discography? What are your thoughts on their recent, more experimental records? Are they alone in being a widely successful band that are practising Mormons, and how do you feel their faith has influenced their output? Anything else about this fascinating band that you’d like to discuss?

2021.12.04 14:23 Zodwraith WTF LG?
After years of listening to my wife bitch about how bad she hated her $800 LG Thinq I bought her a new phone. Thinking I would give the LG to my daughter for her phone games I wiped the LG and tried to set it up. NOW I see why the wife hated her phone so badly. I literally can't remove 30 fucking apps from the homescreen?
Who in the fuck thought it was a good idea to force me to have the calculator app I use twice a year on my homescreen? There's not even a fucking remove option?!
Even android 1.0 wasn't this retarded. Now I know EXACTLY why LG failed so hard in the Android race. Buy the cutting edge hardware and put monkey nut retards placing your custom version of Android over it that breaks 90% of it's functions?
I've come from Motorola, HTC, OnePlus, and Samsung and never been this confused. If this is what LG thinks is a UI they NEED to die. This is a complete abortion of Android. Trying to make this ripoff of a phone useable makes me happy LG bailed because they're not competent in the least.

2021.12.04 14:23 leremias A new player after a long time.
I’ve recently picked this game up and have wanted to get into it for some time. I’ve had a craving for a Civ game and the last one I ever played was Civilization Revolution.
Knowing that, can anyone tell me how much things have evolved since then? Can I expect this one to be super packed full of overwhelming information and new mechanics? I want to learn this one but I do realize it has been some time since I’ve played so I’m fully expecting to be slow.
Any advice, tips, or just general info would be greatly appreciated!

If you know this Game you surely noticed that something is off. My Theory is that all the playabel characters in the Game are Geneticly modified humans who were experimented on by the researchers of the amusementpark in wich the Game plays out. This all was done to create hyper realistic “Animatronics" who then went farel and Started killing each other. (Excuse my not so good english)

2021.12.04 14:23 OdinTheAmerican Revenge in the Army
Revenge in the Army
I was in the Army, and while away on a four day pass, my barracks room was broken into and a significant amount of my military equipment (helmet, backpack, weapons web belt ammo carrier etc) was stolen, to the tune of approximately $800 in 1984 dollars. When l returned, there were tool marks on the locked room door and it was clearly a break in. I notified my platoon sergeant and 1st sergeant, and they said to call the military police. Then the company commandecommanding officer, who outranked us, called me and stated he didn’t want the break-in being reported to the military police because then our company would show up in the higher level (division) police blotter and this would make him, the company commandecommanding officer (CO) look bad. So he told me to do a report of survey, a form used to be reimbursed for lost equipment, and l wouldn’t have to pay for the stolen equipment, whose replacement costs were a month’s pay.
Well l submitted the paperwork, and without the police report, my request to be reimbursed was denied and l was told l would have to pay for all the stolen equipment. I was shocked because it was a lot of money and l was just about to leave the army to go back to college. I needed that money to survive. The CO told me that was a tough break and there was nothing he could do to help me, even though it was his orders l had followed.
Well turns out, just a week before we found out that division would not replace my stolen equipment, l had led our company thru a nuclear, biological and chemical weapons evaluation exercise (that was my specialty in the Army) and the spineless CO, sat out the exercise, and just “observed.” This placed me in a leadership position to do his job, while a Captain from our division HQ graded our actions. I was a junior sergeant who had to maneuver, lead and direct the whole company of 120 men, including senior lieutenants, to a staging area 5 miles away, thru the security procedures to secure the decontamination site and then lead the cleaning of our men, tanks and equipment from the simulated chemical attack. I had never maneuvered an armored company before, but l did it, and the other sergeants and lieutenants in the unit were shocked that the CO hadn’t helped me during the exercise. The process went well, and at the end, a captain from division who was evaluating us, congratulated me on doing a good job. In front of the company, this captain then explained our next steps we would do. He made a mistake and told the troops wrong information, that in combat would get them killed. I was leaving the Army, but l cared enough about my fellow soldiers to want them to be combat proficient. So politely, and respectfully l corrected what the captain had said, but he clearly resented me making him look silly. I guess he was embarrassed a lower ranking soldier corrected him and that made him noticeably embarrassed. At the end of the de-briefing, l was walking back to my armored vehicle to radio our HQ that now we had completed our decontamination (a requirement of the exercise) and were operational again, and this captain followed me, away from the other soldiers. He asked what l was going to do, and l told him l was about to make the radio call to HQ, and he told me that wouldn’t be necessary, l could just tell him what l would say. I told him and he told me our unit had passed the evaluation. Luckily for me, my 1st Sergeant overheard him say this to me.
Now fast forward to where l find out that my equipment would not be replaced, and a couple days later, l was called into the CO’s office with my 1st Sergeant and told our company had flunked the training evaluation because l hadn’t made that radio call. I was getting out of the Army, so didn’t really care but it was bad news for my CO. I was shocked because the other captain, who outranked me, told me not to make the radio call that our unit was decontaminated and operational again. Turns out that the captain was immature and mad at me since l had embarrassed him in front of all the soldiers in my unit.
I still was angry at the CO for ordering me not to call the police about my barracks room break-in, and how he didn’t care that l would now have to pay a lot of money to replace my stolen equipment. So l didn’t defend myself or tell the CO what really happened with the evaluation or that captain. When I left the COs office, the 1st Sergeant told me he heard the other captain tell me not to make that radio call, but not to say anything; our CO was a jerk who would get us all killed in a war and his unit flunking the evaluation made him look really bad, so he asked me to keep my mouth shut.
A couple weeks later, the CO was rude to a sick soldier in our unit, while l was out processing to leave the Army. Everyone hated him even more for this. So our supply sergeant, who was retiring from the army, and after the CO signed for all the military equipment in the supply room, told me he couldn’t believe the CO had screwed me over on my stolen equipment and that he would help me. So he handed me the keys to the supply room that the CO hadn’t collected, and told me to take whatever military equipment l would need to replace my stolen equipment, since the CO was now responsible to replace everything in the supply room with his money. He also apologized that some of the replacement equipment l would need, was not in the supply room and he felt bad l would still have to pay a couple hundred dollars out of pocket to replace some of the stolen equipment.
The supply sergeant also answered my questions about where all the backup training logs for our unit’s weapons and physical training tests were kept. We were about to be inspected by higher headquarters and these records were super important for the CO to pass the inspection and be promoted and not be kicked out of the Army.
The day before l got out of the army with an honorable discharge, and just a couple days before this huge important inspection, it was discovered that the whole company’s year’s worth of weapons training records , the back up records and electronic records were missing or wiped clean. The CO had to explain this embarrassing situation to his bosses, who were not happy with him, and they had to spend a lot of money in ammo to requalify the whole company on all our weapons and re-due our physical tests (PT)of running, push-ups etc. Meanwhile my fellow soldiers loved it because they liked to shoot machine guns, throw grenades, shoot cannons etc.
My last day in the Army, at morning formation, as everyone was getting ready to do the make up PT test and later all day doing make-up weapon qualifications for several more days, my awesome 1st sergeant told me that the disappearing records was the best ETS (end term of service) prank he had ever seen. I of course replied that l didn’t know what he was talking about. He laughed, winked at me and told me l was a good soldier and that he would miss me. He then shook my hand and wished me well.
