2022.01.22 13:59 arcade-hunter Forest song meaning
So as usually it's another SOAD track up to interpretation. The lyrics are vague enough but not as cryptic as other ones. It could literally be about Jesus, it could metaphorically be about humanity and planet earth etc. But I hadn't been able to find a meaning out of this middle eight lyric:
"No televisions in the air, no circumcisions on the chair"
Obviously circumsion is practiced by Jews and it could tie to the biblical references. But the no televisions in the air part, is the only one that seems out of context to the rest of the lyrics.
So what do you guys think?
By the way, I believe the Forest could be a metaphor for civilization. Obviously Serj made civilization's downfall the theme of elect the dead in 2007, but this idea had been on his mind at least as early as 2003 (I saw an interview during the Serart era, and I believe it's the first time he mentions that thought on camera).

2022.01.22 13:59 Sweet_Pea_and_Me I victim blamed my best friend for her rape. It’s been almost two decades. What a shit friend.
TW: Sexual assault Rape
It was 2008. We were inseparable friends. We worked together at a pizza shop and spent most of our free time together. We were in our twenties, so it was a lot of dancing to live bands, drinks after work, swimming in creeks and gardening at my house. We held each other up and there was very little drama – we never argued or competed. She was absolutely wonderful. We will call her Kate (not her real name.) We had started recently to grow just a bit apart because her drinking was increasing and also her more manic behavior with it. I started to withdraw because I had grown up in an alcoholic home and too much made me feel kind of disgusted. I liked a good time, but not the crying on the bathroom floor of a bar type of fun. I loved her I just didn’t feel comfortable when it was all party all the time. But we were still friends - and close.
I had a male friend who was this new-age type (when that was a thing.) I adored him, but was never attracted to him. We’d cook together and go hiking, dance, and shared mutual friends. I held him in high regard and trusted him completely. We had lost a shared friend to suicide and bonded through grief. I’ll call him James (not real name).
I introduced Kate to James one evening when we went to his house to cook dinner. James was smitten with Kate, I could tell. They started going to bars together and we hung out as a group as well. Kate and James were very flirtatious and even I thought Kate might be interested in James. I liked us all close, but I couldn’t keep up with all the nights out.
One night after drinks at a bar I left early because everyone was pretty trashed except me and it all kinda didn’t seem like fun. Kinda sloppy all around. Kate was flirting hard with James, and James with her, and her sitting in his lap. Another one of our close girlfriends was there too and they were determined to keep the night going. I hugged everyone and said goodnight.
The next day I got a call from Kate, “I think James raped me.” “What?! You think he did? What happen? Okay, come over. We need to call the cops and get a rap kit done.”
James calls me and says “Kate, says I raped her. But I thought we liked each other and when we had sex she moved like she was enjoying it and never protested. I thought it was consensual! I feel terrible. I thought we were going to maybe date. I made her breakfast and everything then she calls and says ‘did we have sex?’ I’m so confused. I’ve apologized and tried to understand. I swear I thought it’s what we both wanted.”
I sat down with Kate, I told her to tell me what happened and we needed to decide if she wanted a rape kit and police. She back peddles at this point saying, “I don’t remember what happen so I don’t know if he raped me. I just woke up in my bed with my panties off and no memory of the night.”
At this point I turned into a horrible person. I started questioning her like it’s an interrogation. “What do you mean you don’t remember? How can you call it rape when you don’t remember if you gave consent? Did you say no? Were you unconscious? Do you remember anything? We need to hold him accountable if you didn’t want this! But we can’t say he raped you if you might have said yes at the time.” Ugh. I can hear myself now that I know better and it makes me sick. I was basically shaming her for not remembering. “How can you call it rape if you might have initiated and maintained the act?” What a shit friend.
Apparently they had all went back to Kates apartment after the bar. Our other girlfriend was with them, but left the apartment when she thought Kate and James might be wanting to hook up. This is her account. She even told Kate, “I thought y’all were about to hook up, so I left.”
It never got resolved. Kate and I never really talked after that. I cut off communication with James entirely. I took Kate out to lunch months later to apologize, but when I tried to breech the topic she deflected. Obviously she owes me nothing. I don’t deserve to feel better about this. I think about it all the time. I’m 40 now. I know better now. I think about what a crappy friend I was. How I never apologized, but that apologizing might hurt her by bringing it up and the best thing I can do is leave her alone. But then I think that’s cowardly. It’s been 16 years and I still am so ashamed. I lost her as a friend and it’s been one of my greatest losses. I hope she recovered. I hope she healed. I don’t want to feel better about it. I do wish I knew what the right thing was to do at the time or even after I was horrible to her. I wish all the resources about consent were out there then that are out there now -or at least more available. I’m thankful for at least knowing now, what I didn’t know then. I’m sorry to anyone who was ever blamed by their friends for their rape. You deserve to be believed. You deserve to be held up and supported without question.

On one hand, it creates drama & suspense, which I LIVE FOR. But on the other hand, it can create a sort of "Damn, Double Homicide" moment, as we saw with June. You lose the lipsync, and your fate rests in the hands of chocolate. Thoughts?

2022.01.22 13:59 Veronica_Bloomsbury Looking for an apartment to rent
Hello! I’m a UTM student who’s going to move out of the residence in April, and I’m looking for an apartment (studio or 1-bedroom to rent.)
I don’t want any roommates as my gf will be joining me closer to September (and I had many negative experiences with roommates in general - I have no luck in that department), and it's impossible for me to live in the basement due to asthma.
That being said, it leaves me with a handful of opportunities, most of which cost way over 1,5k (my monthly budget), and I’ll have to use my savings to afford living there. I have a scholarship that covers my studies and a part-time job with the possibility of full-time during the summer, but that's it...
If any of you have rented an apartment in Sauga, what are some decent places? I’ve been on so many websites, but as soon as I find something suitable and look at the reviews, people hate the management. At this point, I'm desperate.
I've also thought of moving to Hamilton, where the prices are much lower, but the transit is going to take forever (I don't have a license and can't afford a car anyway)
Any advice would be highly appreciated ♥️
