2022.01.20 20:18 Frank_Dracula Hello White
I'm sure this ad has a video analogue, but I'm hearing it on TuneIn like it's a radio ad, so this is about the audio.
I have never watched Property Brothers, but I have a working idea of what it is. The very briefest of research tells me that the Property Brothers are Drew and Jonathan Scott, and that they deal with “extreme properties” which I would like to imagine are houses where famous mass murders took place, trailer parks recently visited by tornadoes, or abandoned psychiatric facilities, but I am pretty sure that's not the case. I haven't even seen the show and I'm already disappointed. Drew and Jonathan are Canadian, so they're like Americans, but nicer and generally less aggressive. They are apparently twins, which is fun. Twins on television don't have the ability to mind if you stare at them while trying to figure out which one is which. The promos for the Property Brothers show demonstrate that Drew and Jonathan are also fairy tale giants who still get dressed by their mom, which is fine. Equal opportunity and all.
The ad begins with Jonathan doing an introduction, and I'm only guessing this is Jonathan because he introduces Drew before himself, and Canadians are polite, though every time it sounds like he's saying “Drew, John, and Scott” rather than “Drew and Jonathan Scott” so for a brief time I thought there was three of them. Jonathan seems to be the more serious of the two. Were this a comedy team, he would be the “straight man” like Bud Abbot, or Dean Martin, but they would have to be funny for this to really work.
Jonathan very quickly tells us about the thing they are advertising, which is … [checks notes] … the American Family Insurance Quote Tool - an app you can use to get an insurance quote, and just as he's hitting his mark, Drew breaks in with “Fun paint fact. There are over 150 shades of white, like Fluffy Bunny, Hello White, Eggshell-” and then Jonathan interrupts him with “They get it!”
Jonathan returns to talking about the app, giving the tag line, stomping a few peasant homes with his enormous Milano Blanic loafers while yelling “Am Fam Fo Fum!”, repeating the legalese releasing everyone from any responsibility for the ad, and then the ad ends. However, the thing they are advertising is overshadowed by the curious incident that happens within the ad itself. Drew's part in the narrative is to break in with his “fun paint fact” and name shades of white until shut down by Jonathan. This comes out of nowhere. Nobody is talking about paint or anything remotely related to paint, but Drew suddenly gets the urge to info-dump, and the script simulates him going off script in order to compulsively regurgitate general information. Is this part of his Property Brothers show character? I don't know, I'm just sitting here listening to an ad for a … [checks notes] … quote tool when allofasudden I am bearing witness to a TV personality having some kind of behavioral issue. Is this a common occurrence? Like when Jonathan is trying to have a conversation with the producer, Drew wanders up and “Hey, fun measuring fact, there are over 63,000 inches in a mile, like inch one, inch two, inch five, inch eighty-seven-” and Jonathan has to jump in with “They get it! Go wait in the green room!”
“There are over 150 shades of white.” Is this really a fun fact? Is “white” at all fun? I don't think so. White is the absence of color and shade, while black is the absence of color plus all the shade, and then in between you get an immeasurable range of gray tones. White is blankness. No hues, no definition or depth, nothing. How fun is that? Furthermore, how is this a “fact”? Saying there are over 150 shades of white is like saying there are over 150 degrees of cold. First of all, who cares? Second, “over 150” is way too arbitrary to suggest a useful or even fun fact. Yes, there are probably over 150 different “shades” of white designated by a variety of paint companies in order to sell a variety of white paint. Drew mentions “Eggshell” which is a real option offered by many different paint brands for painting the wall of your home or office or home/office, though when you look at real eggs you can see a blotchy range of slightly different whites, and then a lot of eggs are actually brown, so this is a made up hue. Not a shade, a hue because if there is any color grade at all it's a hue, not a shade, so Drew only gets to name three shades, and one of them is really a hue.
The other shades are “Fluffy Bunny” and “Hello White”, and while I'm familiar with Eggshell, I had to Google these other shades to see what they're talking about. An image search for “fluffy bunny color sample” and “hello white color sample” resulted in lots of pictures of actual rabbits, and several white objects with “hello!” written on them, respectively. Swell. (Here's a fun fact – white rabbits are the exact same shade of white as white lab rats. this is A) a fact, and B) fun, because you immediately think of rats and rabbits hanging out together.) Assuming they exist, these shades of white are company paint names arbitrarily tacked onto various paint formulas for perceptively different white paints. When companies start naming things you get a lot of crazy, non-reality based constructs like “Blue Raspberry” or “Ivory Black”. Most any perceptible shade of white can be expressed as a number, and Fluffy Bunny may only be one digit off from Hello White, and you'd have to stand there staring at the two for a while before convincing yourself that one was a little bit different in some way, and that's what you want on the bathroom ceiling. Drew could just go on naming white things and it would have the same effect, “Hotel Top Sheet, Small Curd Cottage Cheese, Lab Rat, Lithium, Cincinnati Police Hat, Unicorn From Blade Runner (the Director's Cut), 1% Milk, 2% Milk... “ and so on until someone throws a net over him, or he gets taken down by a slingshot wielding shepherd.
What if Drew and Jonathan were separated at birth? There's a story about twins separated at birth who were reunited as adults, and by some freaky coincidence they were both firefighters along with a multitude of other unlikely commonalities that are difficult to explain. So here's Jonathan, toiling away in an Ontario suburb trying to help some people refurbish an old insane asylum when he gets a telegram from The Yukon revealing his long lost brother, Drew. Drew has coincidentally been finding different ways of marketing white paint to the local Tlingit people - “Snow, Wet Snow, Frozen Yogurt, Tusk... did I already say Snow? Fluffy Bunny...” but his success has been below marginal at best, then one day he's hanging out in the Applebee's bar (there's an Applebee's ad that has grabbed my attention that I need to get to later), and on the TV, to what must be his extreme amazement, he sees himself refurbishing an Ontario insane asylum. He dashes off a telegram to The Property Brother show, and the rest is history. I know that's not what happened, and that they've been living in a castle on top of a gigantic beanstalk in Saskatchewan with their normal sized mom, but it's fun to think about.

2022.01.20 20:18 shlka Missed oath ceremony a year ago, no news since April 2021
Hello hello! So, I missed my ceremony because it felt in my spams... It was supposed to be the 2nd of February 2021. I noticed it when I checked my spams, but it was too late. So, I mailed them my reason of not attending and in April, the tracker changed the status of the ceremony to "not started". Since then, I've waited, contacted them several time between June and August. At some point they told me that they sent email to the Montréal office in charge of my ceremony. Then they told me to wait.
I am still waiting, I've contacted them a few days ago, but all I've got is that I still have to wait.
I am not here to rant, i guess they have some delay due to the recents, and ongoing world events.
However, I would like to know if anyone has been in this situation. If so, how long did it took to get rescheduled ? And by any chance, is there anything I can do to get in touch with someone from the office maybe?
TLDR; I missed my citizenship ceremony, I've been waiting for a year and haven't been rescheduled. Looking for a way to know (if) when I'll get rescheduled.

2022.01.20 20:18 nightmaresarereal187 Cordae needs one producer, no features and a general direction of his music
His new album is so so. The beats are mid. He needs to lock in one producer and really create some shit. He has the latent but his music feels like he is brainstorming to talk about something. When he was in the group with those other bums he really shined only because they were trash. I feel like that’s why he did 20 k first week. Feels like he goes through the motions. And that single with Gunna was trash.
