as you probably know, when dm were inducted into the hall of fame in 2020, they did not perform due to covid. let's say they could have and if you could chose the setlist for that performance, what would your choices be? usually, groups only play 4 songs...limit your setlist to four.
enjoy the silence

2021.12.04 13:16 RandomArakuneMain Just finished the greatest meme run of all time
I just finished a meme run where I made everybody fortress knights.
This run was, actually alot easier than expected, and I was able to crush almost everything in my path. I chose the Blue Lion house, because I had just done golden deer, and wanted to wait a bit before doing black eagles again (Black Eagles is my favorite house without question) There were a few obstacles though, and I have to warn you about them.
The first obstacle is magic users. Magic users were generally not much of a problem, because they are generally very squishy, and die easily. However, there were a few magic users who were just able to wipe out my fortress knights almost instantly.

2021.12.04 13:16 throwawayrk238 Do I help by spending time with her, or trying to get her into the hospital for her alcoholism & illness?
This one is a bit dark, but if anyone can relate and has some advice it would be very welcome. CW: Alcoholism, severe depression
This month I've arranged to go and spend a few days with my (25f) Aunt (57f). I haven't seen her since before Covid, and the past couple of years she has been in an extremely dark place.
After her divorce 6 years ago, her alcoholism and depression took a much stronger hold. She no longer leaves her house, has pretty severe complications related to alcoholism, and has obviously been drinking every hour day or night, throwing up constantly, sleeping all the time or not at all, rarely eating etc. She was in quite a hopeless daily routine of those things. It's gotten much worse the past few months, which I honestly didn't think possible.
She lives alone in a big city where she has no one (she burnt all bridges with any acquaintances the past few years), so she calls my mom (her sister) about 5-6x a day. When she calls she is often crying, and a lot of the time incoherent. Once in a while she will call just to talk, and bits of her old self peek through. She doesn't call anyone else other than my mom, myself, maybe rarely another one of her siblings...she hates it if people realize how sick she really is.
We all live quite far away so we can't do much but listen, offer advice or ask her if she's been seeing her doctor, etc. I can't begin to tell you how useless you can feel being hundreds of miles away, asking her if she's had anything to eat today or been outside at all, when you know the hell she is going through mentally.
She finally took herself to the hospital a few months ago (after we pleaded), and she stayed for a few days. The doctors had her on IV, fluids, ran tests and MRIs and found her to have pancreatitis and quite a number of other things wrong. They wanted to keep her longer but she wanted to leave, and a couple of days later she was back where she started. During that stint at the hospital the doctor said that she is unable to travel anywhere due to her health, which she is adamant about when any of us invite her to come and stay a while to get her feet back under her. Sadly I think some shame and embarrassment play a bit of a role in there, too.
This morning she called sobbing because she had just taken a drunken fall and banged herself up quite badly. She thought her ankle might be sprained or fractured. Obviously from so far away we can't do anything, so my mom tried to convince her to go to the hospital, to at least get her ankle looked at. She either avoids any talk of going to the hospital, or says she'll go the elusive 'next week'. If she does address the idea of going to hospital, she says she is scared they'll 'lock her up' or think the worst of her. She has said she sees no point in trying to get better, as she has other serious health complications she'll have to deal with on the other end of this, so 'what is the point?'. She absolutely is suicidal. She does not really want to be here, but she would never end her own life abruptly. She would rather stay in her home, drink until she doesn't have to think, and remain there.
So I've planned to head up to spend a weekend with her during the holidays. I feel horrible that she scrapes along each day on her own, and I'm pretty well aware that if things don't get better in the next month or two, this may be my last time seeing her. I don't think she's seen anyone in her family in a year, at least. Since her family are the only people she has a relationship with, she's been pretty isolated for this whole time.
My question is for anyone who have seen a family member in a similar spot. If you've dealt with a loved one barely functioning, sick as hell, and feeling hopeless. It might be a naive question, but I don't have much experience dealing with alcoholism and this much severe depression. How would you approach a visit like this?
Part of me wants to try and talk her into going to the hospital, spending my visit alongside her while she is in there so she doesn't feel so alone. I think having someone there in person may help her go to the hospital. I could try to support her through that process and make it a little less scary than if she were on her own. Maybe show some tough love in order to get her to go, if it comes to it. It worked once.
The other part of me knows that she may not go to the hospital, and that I can't force her to go. Maybe I should spend the weekend trying to give her some joy, being someone she can talk to, and trying to make her laugh. Maybe I should focus more on trying to let her have a good day in the midst of hundreds of dark ones.
I miss my aunt, and I hate what this disease has done to her body and her brain. She is all mixed up. I want to help, but I also know that she needs to want to help herself. It feels very messy from this close, and I'm struggling to rationally figure out how I can best help her.
How would you approach a visit like this? How do you know when to stop pushing for her to get help? And lastly...even if it sounds bad... Is there a point, after exhausting every option and every single thing you can do...is there a point that comes, where you need to listen to this person's wishes, that they don't want to try any longer? Do you try to make some good out of the time that they have left?
I would like to just add that I know I'm not a therapist and I'm not trying to be one. I know I can't fix this problem, and I can't singlehandedly turn things around for her. She needs medical, professional help. I am her family and her friend. I love her and I will do whatever I can to get her to the people who can help her feel better.
A tldr feels weird with this, but here. Tldr; what would you do to best help a severely depressed and sick family member?

2021.12.04 13:16 BillNye69 Is my house mix ready for Spotify?
Hey friends, hoping to get some feedback from you. I recently completed a house track that I produced using a variety of VSTs and samples, mixed it, and mastered it with Ozone (mastering novice). I really like the way it came out, but am hoping to get some feedback on the mix/master. Am I ready for primetime on Spotify? Does anything sound wildly off? How's the low end?
Appreciate it very much!

2021.12.04 13:16 RedEagle_MGN I studied the Metaverse for 8 years and here's what I concluded:
Preface: The Metaverse is a hypothetical version of the internet in which 3D avatars navigate a 3D space. Companies envision this world to be one where most people will live most of the most meaningful parts of their life in the future.
1. The Metaverse is not possible with mouse and keyboard As Metaverse enthusiasts, it's important to remember that we are likely the top 0.1% of computer users. Most people are confused by technology, overwhelmed by options and worried if they push the wrong button they will destroy something.
Chrome added a copy and paste feature to the menu because people couldn't discover how to copy and paste.
Since the Metaverse simulates the countless possibilities of physical life, the complexity of the user interface gets out of hand quickly.
I remember testing out Second Life and accidentally taking off my pants and being unable to put them back on for 20 minutes.
Clearly, mouse and keyboard would not be a sufficient way of interacting with the metaverse.
2. No significant social organization arises out of putting people in a virtual space 18 years ago, Second Life came out and the hype around the Metaverse future was just as real back then as it is today. You can visit the empty government buildings, brand showcases and cities to get a taste of the forgotten glory.
Time and time again people have been put together in a virtual space, and we still went back to physical life for real connections.
We have to ask ourselves, why did we leave virtual worlds and go back to physical life?
3. The nature of virtual spaces leads to shallow relationships The great benefits of any relationship are usually found in the most challenging operations of cooperation, marriage is a great example. Dating is exciting but sharing a life with someone is deeply sacrificial and yet, the benefits of marriage are enormous.
In digital worlds we scarcely invest as heavily in relationships as in physical life. When we can go anywhere, be with anyone it's easy to constantly look for greener grass.
This problem is accentuated by the ability to change your name/avatar at will. When people can burn others and simply change their identity to escape consequences, they do. Investing in a real reputation and a single identity is the first step to solving this issue.
4. The Metaverse will arise from a gaming world In digital worlds, we find ourselves mixed in with people from different cultures who have different values and interests. By contrast, in physical life we are naturally segmented with people who are more likely to share our values and ideas.
Gaming has the power to break ice between people and therefore has intrinsic utility to the Metaverse.
By using gamification we can organize and connect people of similar interests and values in a virtual space.
Not only that, gaming has the power to get people to relax. Human beings don’t develop meaningful friendships when forced into it. This is what social games and “virtual life” games often get wrong. Actual gameplay builds the context we need to relax and have a conversation to find people we are compatible with.
5. Reciprocating facial expressions are necessary for cooperative human behavior If you've ever lifted a baby and smiled at it, you know that facial expressions are deeply embedded in how we communicate. When we hurt someone's feelings, their facial expressions changes and, as we reciprocate their facial expressions, our body produces the same emotions as we make that individual feel. This acts as a natural tempering of our behaviour that we don't get when we communicate over the internet.
6. The network effect would eventually push everyone to a single virtual world A long time ago, there was a single company that dominated the telephone market. To call anybody who was the customer of the company you needed to have a phone that was with that same company, phones were not interoperable. Today, if you want to contact somebody on Facebook, you need Facebook to do so. This is how social networks defend their intellectual property.
Meta executive Jason Rubin:
“The first metaverse that gains real traction is likely to the be the last,” Rubin wrote. “We must act first, and go big, or we risk being one of those wannabes.” - CNBC
The network effect is a scary prospect because it means that there will likely be only one Metaverse to rule them all in the end.
7. Customization is the enemy of usability It's fascinating to bump into so many people who share the idea that no corporation should control the future of human interaction. However, it's laughable that we're using the same ill-advised ideas that allowed Facebook, Google and apps to dominate when it comes to this next chapter.
One of the reasons that Facebook overtook MySpace was that MySpace allowed people to customize their profile infinitely. This led to a myriad of different user interfaces, confusing navigation and a poor user experience.
Just imagine a myriad of virtual worlds all with their own user interface, controls and standards. The experience of travelling from world to world would be like being born all over again and having to learn how to read and write.
Therefore, the virtual world must have a single user experience to reach mass adoption.
8. The Metaverse has the power to become a dystopian nightmare As the network effect brings everyone to a single Metaverse, the potential for the abuse of power will be astronomical. The Metaverse will understand where you are, who you are with and even what you look at.
AI will be able to process that data to better understand you than you yourself and data is the first step toward oppression.
Utilizing all this data, powerful individuals will have the ability to suppress dissent, identify people of contrarian opinion etc.
Moreover, if we begin to fool ourselves that we can agree on morals and values, those who disagree with the mainstream will live in constant fear of losing their friends, job and opportunities if they are banned from the Metaverse.
P.S. I am not a financial adviser.

2021.12.04 13:16 tathomas372 I created a twitter account that posts AI generated Canucks related tweets. I call it "Canucks Artificial Insider".
I've been playing around with AI text generation, so I setup a script that took about 150,000 tweets from various Canucks twitter members over the last decade to generate fake tweets. In the era of another depressing season, hopefully people here might find some of them funny. I try and post one or two a day, and pick the ones that might be relevant with current events.
