2023.06.10 20:07 adullploy Was Ted Lasso originally planned as marketing for the future Apple-MLS partnership?

Ted Lasso fan here. Well more like the current excited now mostly let down by season 3. Anyway, grinding out the final episodes when I realize they’re just shoving football is life down my throat, weird English school boy stories of Rupert and his love for it, and as an American I can’t relate. I’ve also seen how much they promote MLS in the sports tab and it started to make me wonder if the show could have had its roots in a board room somewhere to drum up American interest in soccer.

Previously on Leveling up the World…

Orange clouds floated on a purple sky. There had been a time when Dallion would have found such a sight breathtaking, or at the very least remarkable. Now, it was just another day in his realm. Sitting at the top of Onda’s tower, Dallion stared into the distance.
“Hey, old man!” the teen nymph shouted. “You’re messing up the look!”
If there was one person whose arrogance had grown along with Dallion’s it was Onda. The hammer guardian had always seen himself as a genius and, thanks to the Moonstone in the realm, his opinion of himself had grown even further.
“You’ve no idea how much time and skill it took to get it right!”
Funny. Up to today, Dallion hadn’t minded the attitude. In fact, he hadn’t even noticed it.
“I need some assistance,” he said, glancing down.
At the comment, the guardian froze. There was a spark of emotions within him that was quickly subdued.
“She said not to encourage you,” Onda whispered.
“Harp?” Dallion split into a few instances and looked around. “I won’t be doing anything reckless,” he said with a sigh. “It’s forging related.”
“Forging?” The guardian didn’t sound convinced.
“A while back, you said that there are more complicated things than crafting metals. I want to learn magic crafting.”
“Magic crafting?” Onda shivered slightly while saying the magic word.
“Whatever the proper term is. I know you can do it, so—”
“Can’t.” The guardian quickly interrupted. “She said no magic.”
“Seriously?” Dallion grumbled. “Harp!” he shouted in the direction of the harpsisword’s tower.
Other than a few waves, there was no reaction. Harp was determined not to meddle in his development, and that included not helping him with anything magic related, at least for the time being. After what had happened in Lanitol, Dallion would have thought that he’d be given a pass for reasonable requests. Apparently, that wasn’t the case.
In all honesty, his request wasn’t exactly safe or random. The thought of challenging the archduke’s son had made him remember the duel they’d had back in Nerosal, including the origami weapons the noble had used. Creating such a weapon would be very beneficial in more ways than one. For one thing, Dallion was considering upgrading Lux’s home. Having the firebird follow him about like a bladebow with kaleidervisto sights was starting to get bothersome.
“What about enchanting?” Dallion asked. “I’ve already done that many times.”
The nymph shook his head.
“That was temporary.”
Maintaining his calm exterior, Dallion waited for a short while longer, then left his realm. The first thing he felt was a wave of air hitting him in the face. Moments later, his senses returned to normal.
Normally, entering a realm while flying wasn’t the best of ideas, but it didn’t count while on a cloud fort. Initially, Dallion had wanted to avoid the fuss, but when the squad of furies within the cloud had offered to take them, the choice was made for him.
Aware of their emotions, he knew that the offer was extended mostly because of Diroh. While guard furies assisted mages, they rarely went out of their way to catch up to one mid flight. The rumors of her being royalty must have spread.
“You can rest a bit,” the fury told Dallion. He was a seasoned veteran who didn’t have time for all the rank bullshit. “We won’t reach the Academy till tomorrow.”
One additional day. If Dallion had continued flying on his own, he’d have been there by now.
“Any news?” he asked, suppressing a yawn.
“Where do I start? The Azures are gathering armies in the northeast. Mages too. I’m expecting a major clash in a month at most. The new archduke is also positioning her forces. Now that she’s been given the new spot, she can’t afford to mess up.”
It was tempting to crack a smile. It would be nice if Priscord got humiliated in the upcoming battle, but that was unlikely to happen. The emperor had picked her for the position, which meant that he’d back her up with some of his legions. Losing two archdukes in the same area wasn’t something that would look good.
“Lots of crimsons are also there,” the fury continued. “At least we get to enjoy the skies here for a while.”
Dallion nodded. He, too, was going to join them.
“A bunch of rogues formed a new enclave in the west. It’s out of the empire, so no one’s bothering for now. I told some of your lot that it’s a mistake. No one listened.”
“Someone will take care of them.”
The west, at least, was deprived of any presence. Only the Order was slowly spreading in that direction. No wonder the last Star had made his stronghold there.
“There’s been a few skirmishes in the southeast, but nothing major. The Alliance is keeping the Azures in check. Only minor kingdoms are poking about, trying to get themselves noticed by one of the powers.”
“Yes, everyone’s choosing sides.”
That was true and things were only going to get tougher. Settlements, cities, even small countries were quick to ally themselves to one of the three powers. Even before the war began, several of the minor players had made their intentions known. Most had allied to the empire. Now that its position was shaky, they were looking at the other options. It didn’t end with whole settlements either. Guilds and trade organizations had been moving about, going further to the heart of the empire or out of it. Even hunter dens weren’t immune.
Before leaving Lanitol, Dallion had flown by the structure out of a feeling of nostalgia. What he found was an empty lot. He had expected some of the hunters to have gone—there were many dwarves among them. Yet, the building was missing as well. A more optimistic person might have assumed that the hunters had found a way to take their den as they left the city. In reality, it had likely been absorbed by the overseer. Neutrality was a dangerous notion, especially if those proclaiming to be neutral were strong.
“Over a dozen ghost towns have formed on the border,” the fury said. “If they remain too long without a master, the wilderness will take them.”
“That’s how it usually works.”
The fury glanced at Dallion sideways, but didn’t add anything more. It was obvious he wanted to know more about the fury, just as it was obvious that Dallion had no intention of sharing. The moment of calm had given him a while to relax, and now that adrenalin had loosened its grip, less immediate concerns had resurfaced.
Prophecies, he said to himself. So far, he had heard two. The first had come from a nymph sheet acquired years ago. The dwarf hunter who had found it swore that an otherworlder would bring to the end to the world, or at the very least a substantial change. When combined with what Cleric had shared, the worst might have come to pass. It was Dallion who had made it possible for Adzorg to construct his device. If he found the final pieces, he might pop the barrier between worlds like a soap bubble, letting void creatures pour into reality unimpeded.
If there was nothing you could do, the Order wouldn’t have sent you, Gen said from Dallion’s realm. There’s no point in perfect prophecies.
There is if all you need to do is hide, Dallion replied mentally.
If you’re hiding, you’re not doing it very well.
Dallion smiled. His echo had a suitable sense of humor, even if it didn’t help particularly right now.
“What about vortex gleams?” Dallion asked.
“Vortex gleams,” the fury repeated. “There’s talk of a few out east. The crimsons will know more. They don’t tell the rest of us much.”
“Right.” Dallion leaned back in the sea iron mesh that served as a chair. “Wake me up when we get to the Academy. Don’t stop for anything until we get there, not even assists.”
“You’re the mage.”
If the flight was eventful, Dallion never got to learn about it. Over a day, he spent the time sleeping. To a large part, that was to diminish the fatigue that had stacked up in the last six months. More importantly, though, he was hoping to have a Moon dream. With the curse, he hadn’t been getting anything that might help. This time was no different, although it didn’t bring nightmares either. All it brought was a whole lot of blankness: Dallion closed his eyes one moment, then when he opened them again, he was a few hundred feet from the battle mage building. According to the armadil shield, they had been there for hours, but no one had dared wake him up.
How nice of them, Dallion thought and sat up.
The fury on guard was new—far younger than the previous one, tasked with keeping the cloud stable. Everyone else, Diroh included, was gone.
“Where’s everyone?” Dallion cracked his back. Sleeping on war clouds wasn’t as comfortable as people assumed it would be.
“Your novice was escorted into the building, battle apprentice,” the fury replied, using Dallion’s standard title. “All your things were moved to your room as well.”
“And the furies?”
“They were sent out on another cloud. Katka ordered that we leave you to sleep undisturbed, so—”
“I get the picture.”
Dallion cast a spell, rising up from the cloud. Without a word of thanks, he floated straight to Katka’s room on the upper floor of the building, then went inside. The magic symbols on the walls glowed brighter as he passed. Recognizing him as belonging here, they remained in their present state.
The moment he flew in, the room widened, increasing tenfold in size. This wasn’t normal. Katka wasn’t a fan of modifications, preferring to keep things as they were. Ironically, that made many of the Academy mages see her as a snob. In their eyes, illusions weren’t good enough for her, since she resorted to getting the actual physical thing and bringing it here.
The current modification spell had turned the room into a modern Earth corporate office. There was lots of space, full of desks, cheap plants, water coolers and a glass walled meeting room at the far side. Looking closely, Dallion saw four figures gathered there.
Just great, he thought.
The archmage was present along with Katka. The other two were silhouettes made of cloud matter and water, respectively. That meant that the entire Shimmering Circle had gathered to discuss something. Since Dallion had joined, there had been only one similar meeting. Back then, the “woman” Dallion had seen in Gassil’s memory fragment had also been there, even if no one had formally introduced her to him. There were a few more instances in which she had taken shape to discuss something with Katka. As for the last member, he remained completely unknown. Dallion was aware of his existence, but nothing more.
“Dal,” the archmage’s voice echoed throughout the room, as if he were using loudspeakers. “Join us.”
Taking a deep breath, Dallion made his way to the door of the meeting room and went inside. The conference table was large enough to hold eight people. The seat next to Katka was left free, indicating he was supposed to take it.
“This must be important.” Dallion said, using his magic vision in an attempt to see the people behind the constructs. He was able to see the magic threads connecting the forms to invisible portals, but not what lay beyond. “First time I see everyone gathered.”
The sharp look the archmage gave him quickly told Dallion to tone down the humor.
“We heard what happened down south,” the man said. “What are your dealings with the Order?”
“You know I can’t tell you that,” Dallion said calmly. “Moon vows and all that.”
“What I can say is that the Azures tried to take out the archduke.” There was a moment’s pause. “And myself.”
“You were targeted?” Katka asked, more surprised than intrigued.
“I guess Grym is still mad at me for last time. They managed to put echoes in a lot of the people at the banquet. Most of them were normies, but there were a few awakened… as well as the local mage.”
“We know,” the archmage said. “Would have been nice to bring one of them alive for questioning.”
“Wasn’t my fault. The archduke absorbed all the evidence. I did manage to get the mage’s robe, though. If there’s anything to be learned, I’ll find it.”
“Such a marvelous ability,” the cloud woman said. “Sometimes you make me envious.”
“That’s not why I called for this,” the archmage hissed. “A messenger arrived from the emperor himself. The vortex gleam that was spotted not too long ago wasn’t the only one. As it turns out, it’s only a drop in the bucket. There have been twenty-seven confirmed sightings, but unlike the last one, the levels are much higher.”

2023.06.10 20:06 thededman13 I'm 52 and too old to be watching star wars cartoons

Or at least I thought.
Boy, was I wrong.
To summarize, up until this year I've only ever watched movies from the SW universe. I'm almost ashamed to admit that I started watching reaction videos of the Mandalorian, following the story.
I signed up for Mickey Mouse + for season 3
I watched the 3rd season of the Mandalorian and was really hyped at the announcement of the Ashoka series.
I figured I'd better watch all the relevant animated series to learn about her backround/story
So I went straight to the star wars movies/series timeline they have setup and started with the Clone Wars
Clone Wars: was good but it seemed to have a lot of filler episodes
The Bad Batch: This was epic, I LOVED THIS SERIES
I'm now currently watching Rebels. I realize that although it takes place after the previous 2 series, the animation style/quality (it looks like an animation where as the Bad Batch looked almost live action at times) leads to believe it was one of the first animated series.
Was not sure if the difference in animation would hinder my enjoyment.
Well (just one example) I just watched Season 3's "Twin Suns" episode last night and just sat there, jaw hanging wide open because of what I had just witnessed (no spoilers)
So yea, I was wrong, way wrong about the cartoons.
And I've never been so happy to be wrong.

2023.06.10 20:06 Jagger67 “The Good Ones” is a good episode in my opinion

[This is my first time watching from the beginning of season 6]
I found the episode incredibly cathartic and enjoyable because of the self-awareness it took a cop show, let alone a comedy programme, to acknowledge and address the profound problems in policing in the United States.
The sub-plot with Charles was funny (to me), and the main plot line, with the female captain running through why they can’t fire two police officers for assaulting that woman needs to be known by more people.
Honestly I knew this episode was coming thanks to its clear lowest ranking on all the rating infographics and all the references to “a political episode” in comments on here; but having a black man murdered on camera by a police officer, and a literal attempted coup trying to overthrow an election meant that the writers couldn’t simply continue with their cop based programme.
I am a citizen of the United Kingdom and we have our police problems here to, what with a met policeman raping and murdering a woman in 2021.
I am open to questions and further discussion.

2023.06.10 20:03 BillPlunderones23fg Why I don't like this series

So when I first read it, I was actually enjoying it. It had a fun premise and was amusing and some of the plot twists were good............. Then it kept going, getting dumber, bad character descions, and I just don't care anymore. I skim the newest chapters to see if anything good happens... Most part it doesn't. and recent chapters have not helped either with the constant back and forth between him I think engaged to Erika yet going for Segawa (if that engagement was cancelled and such then sorry just shows how much I don't care anymore lol)
But my real main issue with the series is something I have a problem with in a lot of manga/anime. I am a huge fan of female on male abuse if it is done correctly: In my case the girl uses wrestling moves as punishment instead of the typical overused punches and kicks. So I naturally enjoyed Sachi the most as she is Nagi's sister and she beats him up with wrestling moves...
If Only We saw That more often.......... So here is where my gripe comes in. Manga: around ch 16 Sachi put Nagi in an armlock we got to see that, and then it cut to the exterior of the house and we just see the speech and sfx then it cuts back when she is done. Meh that could have been better. bit later idk what chapter: Sachi puts Nagi in a headlock... then it cuts to the exterior of the house and we just see the speech and sfx....... Later we see Sachi's embarrassed face and then cut to the exterior of the house and just hear her beating him up and never showing it......... And ever since then she hasn't done anything not even a denki anma to him which is pretty popular in japan between siblings.
I very much dislike Tell not show, so when the abuse comedy happens and we just cut to an exterior of the setting and hear it. that's a waste for me and pretty dang annoying, and this series does it 3 times. So when the anime was coming out I was iffy animation looked good but I had hope that maybe the anime would include the Sachi abuse that the manga cut away from...
It didn't... It actually did it worse.
The armlock was shown but then it cut to exterior of house and we hear Nagi pain then it cuts back to them in talking mode the headlock was shown but then it cuts to exterior of house and we hear Nagi pain... BUT then we cut right back to Nagi laying on floor after being beaten and then go to next scene...... third one Sachi embarrassed face and we cut to exterior of house and hear her beating him, But then we cut back and Sachi has him in a Camel Clutch (one of my favorite moves) Yay thank goodness. But too little too late and also this is episode 21, Oh and the actual move is not done in good detail and then cuts to a real close up of Sachi face and end credits - you couldn't keep the shot of the move and then end , why did we need a close up...
Ugh if this was their way of being faithful to the manga it is a lazy way lol and makes me angry , Doesnt absolve of the other issues of the series but If they kept this stuff up and shown it, Or had Sachi do more I would at least have been entertained... I can overlook bad things if there is enough good things to keep me entertained. Oh and the few times Erika abuses Nagi it is with freaking punches and kicks - hate that and Segawa is a kickboxer too -- hate that too... So yeah those are my thoughts and I wanted to vent, I do hope the series ends good at least, Nisekoi was another similar example but that one at least had some great comedy and character interactions to warrant it's longevity. The author's previous work of Yamada and the 7 Witches was good (i still had my issues with that one) and the Yankee Megane one (I had more issues with that but still found it entertaining) current one Hiiragi-San Vampire has promise but I fear it will go down same path so I am having issues with that one too.

2023.06.10 20:00 tom2point0 Full transcripts anywhere?

I’m looking for full transcripts of the show for the full run, including Reborn. Most times what I find are the transcripts without the character names listed next to the dialogue, so unless you’re watching the episodes as you’re reading, it’s not an easy read, difficult to know who is saying what.
I’ve managed to find up to midway through season 3 with character names and then nothing. Anyone have any ideas?

2023.06.10 20:00 Drathnoxis The Second Biggest Problem with Made In Abyss: The Pacing.

In general it's just way too fast for its own good. Our introduction to the world is really good. We spend the first 8 chapters, or 3 episodes, hyping up this amazing hole in the ground. We are shown this big beautiful map that is still only described as a 'rough map of the Netherworld,' implying that there is much more to discover than what is shown. We are told of all the amazing treasures that are contained within. There are so many of these, in fact, that even after 1900 years of exploration there are still artifacts being discovered in the first 1000m, right on the edge of the abyss. After all this build up, when Riko and Reg set out on their one way journey into the Abyss, what do they do? Race to the bottom as fast as possible, taking no time for exploration or sight seeing. Seriously, what the heck?! I know Riko wants to reach her mother right away, but, come on! Riko herself even at one point says that "this journey in the abyss is a once-in-a-lifetime thing, after all!" (in justification for eating something that is probably going to give her food poisoning.)
Volume 1 was entirely Orth. 1/3 of the way into volume 4 and the team is already moving into the 5th layer, and roughly half that page count was spent at either the Seeker Camp or Nanachi's Hideout. At this point Riko has descended through over half of the Abyss in roughly twice the page count as was spent in Orth. Seriously, what was the point of all the hype if we weren't actually going to spend any time exploring the abyss. The worst part is that we can't ever go back and fill in those details later because of the premise of the Abyss. Once we've moved past an area, that's it. It's done. It's not the kind of story where Team Riko could find themselves needing to return to layer 3 for some reason to flesh it out a bit more. I suppose Tsukushi could write a side story involving new characters, making a more careful and thoughtful descent, but he really doesn't seem interested in that. So we end up with the fact that, despite the tremendous build up, the Abyss comes across as feeling rather small and uninteresting.
Ok, but I can hear the responses already: "Tsukushi had to rush down to Nanachi because the manga was in danger of being cancelled." and "He's only one guy doing all the art and story by himself, if he spent a volume or more exploring each layer it'd take him 30 years to finish the story!" Well, answer me this: What is one thing that anime adaptations have been traditionally known for, even to their own detriment? Filler! Made in Abyss was crying out for episodes and episodes of filler content to flesh out this world, and yet what we got was one of the most bare bones adaptations they could manage. I really don't understand why they did it this way, other than MIA maybe wasn't popular enough to justify more than 14 episodes.
There's something else I want to take a moment to briefly address before returning to the pacing issues in layer 5 and 6. Namely I want to talk about artifacts for a moment. There aren't any! After setting out into the Abyss Team Riko doesn't find a single artifact in 60 chapters! (end of season 2) What even is this? Every artifact that we see Riko use (sun stones, scaled umbrella) was something she had found on the first layer before even starting her adventure. This is one of the major pillars that the premise rests upon: namely that this is an amazing pit full of treasure. She doesn't even need to find anything super amazing that'll make her OP, just something. Anything! Just to show that the stuff actually exists in the world and isn't just conjured into being when you don your stylish white whistle armor. The first volume really gives you the impression that this is going to be a journey of exploration and discovery, almost archaological in nature based on some of Riko's stated goals, but the story completely refuses to deliver on this promise.
Anyway, to return to the issue of pacing, in layer 5 the pacing really starts to affect the plot, in addition to the previously stated issues. Namely, the problem is with Prushka. She and Riko spend about 2 hours together, in which they apparently form a bond so deep that when Prushka turns herself into a white whistle she attunes to Riko rather than the father that she is utterly and completely devoted to. It's just a bit of a stretch. Imagine this, though. Rather than meeting Team Riko at the doors of Ido Front, she meets them at near the start of layer 5, just after Nanachi has finished snacking on slimey stew. Her accompanying umbra hands conveniently die (Bondrewed being the fiendish and calculating genius that he is), and Prushka is left alone to guide Team Riko back to Ido Front, the widest of the layers. Give us a goodly few chapters spent developing both Prushka and the wonders of layer 5, then continue the story as normal at Ido Front, and Prushka's inevitable sacrifice will feel a lot more meaningful and Riko's reaction more natural. After seeing how much fun adventuring with Team Riko is first hand, it's more understandable for her to turn into a white whistle to continue the adventure, rather than after just having heard a couple stories.
In layer 6, things really turn around and we starting hitting pacing issues from the other end. This is the longest arc by far. A full 5 volumes are not only spent within a single layer, but almost entirely within a single village. This arc gets as much time devoted to it as everything before it combined. And none of it matters. Nearly every character, place, and thing introduced is dead or destroyed by the end. Large sections of the story are dominated by these new characters, with our protagonists simply acting as spectators, or even unconscious. Almost the entirety of volume 8 is a flashback to the story of these new characters. Even the anime director recognized how dire this was to the pacing and attempted to break it up a bit by interspersing it throughout the season. I really get the sense that by this point Tsukushi was pretty burned out on the initial premise he set up for MIA and wanted to tell a different story, with different characters, and was simply obligated to drag our trio along for the ride. The problems with Iruburu arc are many, and as I'm planning to write another post focusing exclusively on it, I'll suffice it to say for now that this part of the story drags. It drags hard. And they still don't spend much time actually exploring the Abyss itself, just this one village.
So that's the problems with the pacing in Made in Abyss. In general, it's too fast to deliver on the sense of wonder and discovery that was promised in the opening chapters.

the episode where Alex defends his father after Ross hacks his heart to shreds. 😔 & then brings his wife to the hospital per his wish in hopes he can see her & his youngest son before he dies.. ultimately being the only one by his bedside at the end. in the million times i’ve rewatched.. this is my first time paying full attention to each part of him with his father during this episode & wow! so heartbreaking! especially since during the withdrawals, Jimmy was yelling for Alex.. yelling at “Helen” for not taking care of Alex.. & then as he’s literally knocking on deaths door, & ALEX is the only one who has been by his side (yes i know Jimmy doesn’t realize. bc of how sick he is by this point but still) but he’s crying for Naomi & Nicky. & that hit me so hard. & all i could do was cry as i watched Alex stare at Jimmy & tell him that Naomi & Nicky love him & that it’s ok for him to go now.. Alex wanted him to love him, in my opinion.. & to know that HE was there in the end despite the fact that Jimmy was never a father his entire life. & couldn’t even be one for the last few months or weeks of his life & by that point it wasn’t even much of an ask. 😭 poor Alex… now thinking ahead to the episodes & scenes of Alex with his mom.. i appreciate them so so so much more! especially since she’s not losing her mind & she knows how to maintain herself at that point. & he’s so happy to just see her alive, healthy, & well. i love that it doesn’t show him mentioning his father to her. can you imagine how big of an episode they could have came up with if they would have made one where he talks to Helen about Jimmy coming into the hospital, & the experience he had with him through that time??
what are all of your opinions on this?

2023.06.10 19:57 Matt_Oliveira .y overall Thoughts on season 3

Now that the show is seemingly over, here are my thoughts on season 3. Let's start with the negatives first and finish on a positive note
What I hated:
1.) A scene in episode 3x10. At some point toward the end of that episode they make a sly comparison between Roy and Rupert which felt weird. Roy is not at all like Rupert
2.) Every trope and cliche they managed to avoid the previous two seasons, they, for some reason, went all in on this season. Back to back to back to back. Examples-
Roy and Keeley breaking up, unnecessary. Why can't we have a nice, cute, organic relationship that isn't riddled with FUCKING DRAMA?!?! And top it all off, they don't even get back together in the end. I mean, WHAT THE FUCK?!?!
Michelle dating the therapist, unnecessary. Season 1 did such a good job of not vilifying her character inspite of her initiating the divorce. They should've let the story stay amicable. I feel like her dating the therapist undoes all of that, especially since it's quite possible that he was the one that could've manipulated her into divorcing Ted so he could slide in.
3.) Unnecessary characters-
Jack was an Unnecessary storyline that should've never happened
Shandy was annoying and served no purpose at all
Zava at the very least had some funny moments but even he felt redundant and useless
Edwin Akufo was ok in season 2 but he didn't need to come back
4.) Keely's character felt very seperated this season-
Keeley was always the glue for all the major characters and even though she had scenes with them, it felt more separated this season. she still felt isolated from everyone. I don't know why, but it just felt different
What I Enjoyed:
1.) Roy and Jamie's friendship-
This was easily one of my favorite parts of this season. Their friendship this season was both hysterical and endearing. What a huge difference in their relationship in comparison to season 1.
2.) Sam and Simi-
I liked their dynamic together. Wish they had time to build on it more
3.) Collins Story-
Very well done story and I like the friendship with Trent that came of it. Glad he got his happy ending.
4.) Trent integrating with Ted and the team-
I liked Trent's journey with Ted these past 3 seasons. Season 1 he begrudgingly takes a liking to Ted. Season 2 is when we see the mutual respect from both men truly grow. Season 3 he integrates with the team and a true friendships starts between him and Ted.
5.) Ted and Beard's backstory-
This was cool to see because it adds context to their friendship and it gives Beard some character development. Beard is kind of a background character most of the time, in that he doesn't really speak much, so I'm glad they gave the character some depth with this story
6.) Nate and Jade-
I really like Jade. She brings outer a softer side to Nate when we've become so accustomed to his douchebag side.
7.) Jamie's relationship with his mom-
It was nice seeing his mom after all his references toward her the past two seasons. I really liked the close relationship that they had.
What I would've liked to have seen but I'm not upset about:
1.) More Sassy and Nora-
Sassy is a fun character and it'd be cool if she was a more regular character rather than having a guest appearances once or twice in a season
Nora was a nice addition in season 2 and I liked the relationship between her and Rebecca. That dynamic would've nice to build more
2.) More Dr. Sharon Fieldstone-
I wish she was a apart of the main cast
Overall Thoughts:
This season had a bit of a rough start but definitely picked up later on and had a ,mostly, satisfying ending. I'm gonna miss this show

2023.06.10 19:53 No-Zookeepergame4841 Janina’s Podcast

I listened to her new podcast, After We Wrap, I think it’s called and the first episode was really good. Jaina talked about her background, growing up in The Bronx, her name change, her family, how she started dancing, how she got into acting, her culture and what it means to not just her, but what it means in the entertainment business. It’s a really good listen and I’d advise people to check it out.

What You Get:

Program #1

CTC Launches

(to master your launch and funnel sequences)
10X Launches is the first copywriting program fully engineered to speed up the execution and amplify your results of your emails no matter what kind of funnel or launch strategy you’re rolling out.
It’s built not only for best-in-class launch copywriters…
But for coaches, consultants, course creators, and ANYONE who stands to benefit from nailing down their launch and funnel copy faster and with more genuine impact.

2 “Core” Modules

That will initiate you into the “Coaching The Conversion™ method, and how to leverage a new, more empowering definition of “direct response” that opens up the floodgates to greater intimacy, empathy, and conversions.

5 “Launch” Modules

breaking down every single phase of your launch or funnel in full detail (including some you didn’t even know existed). You’ll learn exactly what’s at play during the Segmentation & Confirmation, Pre-Launch, Launch, Sales and Closing phases of your funnel and how to quickly craft the messaging that coaches your prospect into the final conversion in a powerful, non-sleazy way.

25+ Email Templates

None of that BS “plug’n’play” or “swipe and deploy” stuff that shoehorns your message into lifeless boxes that robs it of all life and power.
Instead, you’ll get FULL breakdowns and walkthroughs of the go-to templates I turn to over-and-over again in 6 and 7-figure launch campaigns.
Meaning, you get to craft your OWN high-converting launch emails in about 25 minutes flat and fire them into ConvertKit, ActiveCampaign (or wtv you’re using) while your coffee’s still hot.

Program #2

CTC Sales Pages

(to master your long form sales page)
This is it.
It’s where the best paid copywriters, coaches and course marketers on the planet earn their keep.
It’s where the conversion either happens or it doesn’t. In cold hard numbers that don’t care how many Clif bars you stress-ate in the process.
It’s where the most admired online business owners transform interest, desire, and engagement and into what you actually want: Sales.
So what is “it”?
It’s your long-form sales page.
And the truth is… most copywriters and marketers avoid long-form sales pages like the plague… treating it like a close-talking lepper with coffee breath… instead of the 24/7 salesperson your sales page – that final step in your marketing funnel – should be.
So why do marketers (and even pro-level copywriters) avoid sales pages?
Because writing a long-form sales page is intimidating AF.
It’s the Night King of the Whitewalker army.
It’s the Beef Wellington on Hell’s Kitchen.
It’s the Lord Voldemort of your marketing funnel – aka the funnel asset that shall not be named.
A long-form sales page is where you’ll spend dozens of hours writing THOUSANDS of words that will either confirm your claim as a top player in your space…
Or will tell you with Gordon-Ramsay-esque candor that your marketing wasn’t as good as your business coach told you it was.
There’s real pressure in that.
But there’s even real-er payoff in being able to do it faster – and more profitably – than anyone else in your industry. A payoff that even affords you the right to make up words like real-er
Confronting, yep? Conquerable. Absolutely.
In CTC Sales Pages, you’ll go through the exact process I’ve used to write over twenty 6 and 7-figure sales pages for the likes of Amy Porterfield, Copyhackers, and many more.

Program #3 & #4

Six Figure Emails & Seven Figure Emails

(for even more email conversion badassery)
Welcome to the “Johnnie Walker Blue” of our email template series.
This is the premium blend for more advanced marketing palates.
All pulled straight from my highest-performing launches for industry titans like Amy Porterfield, Todd Herman, Traffic & Funnels, and Copyhackers.
What you’re getting are 13 advanced email templates that you can use in a pinch when you need to write a standalone sales email, a webinar invitation, a post-webinar replay, downsell, or flash sale.
To be clear, these aren’t those sketchy and lifeless “swipe and deploy” templates you may have seen swimming around the shadier parts of the online marketing cesspool.
These are loose, flexible templates that guide you through deep-dive masterclasses teaching you the advanced psychology behind each one.
Meaning, you actually understand WHY they work, and are fully empowered to engineer them to best serve your audience.

Program #5

Application Funnel Amplifiers

(for creating powerful pre-call enrollment experiences)
Fact: The enrollment experience begins the moment your prospect books a call.
If you mail it in for those 12-72 hours between when they book the call — and show up to it, you’re missing a golden opportunity to begin coaching the necessary transformations.
In this brand new program, you’ll learn how we to consciously engineering your entire application experience to pre-empt objections, create magnetism, and stack the odds in favor of having a successful enrollment conversation

2023.06.10 19:50 KmsotWorld I think my edible may have been laced last night

I am someone who has experience with edibles but to say that yesterday was my worst experience on edibles is an understatement. My boyfriend had recently purchased a 2 84mg peach ring from a questionable source. A few days back he had taken one of the rings and had a great time nothing crazy, so I decided to take his second ring last night. Boy was that a mistake
As soon as it hit I had to immediately sit down, I felt weak and dizzy. We decided to try to watch chainsaw man but to my dismay we were on the episode with the infinity demon and everything went downhill from there. My brain was on overload and felt as if was bursting every few minutes, my chest was aching like crazy and finally, the uncontrollable shaking began. No matter how many blankets I wrapped around my self I was cold and shaking badly. Then everything kept blinking in and out, if I tried to stand and walk it off I felt incredibly dizzy and heavy. I tried to close my eyes and just breathe but that wasn’t helping. At some point my dog and cat started chasing each other up and down the stairs— I live in an upstairs apartment so there is only the front door downstairs— this where I start hallucinating and I mean full on acid esq open eye hallucination that my dog was at the bottom of the stairs mauling my cat to piece. Full panic sets in, I jump off my couch, over the banister, slam into the wall and turn on the stairwell light to my utter shock as my fear has come true: blood everywhere, pieces of my cat all over the ground. Or so I thought. It took me a minute for this horrid image to blink out of existence and for my eyes to adjust to the reality that my cat was just fine and they were just hanging out down there. It was the worst thing I have ever witnessed or experienced, it felt so real that I had to sit there on the top of the steps just breathing and trying to rationalize what had just happened.
At this point I decided I needed to go to bed but it was impossible to sleep, my mind wouldn’t stop playing vivid memories of times before when I had been high. Reality fell apart, I was bombarded with images of what souls actually look like according to my mind. The souls were these odd neon lines forming different shapes with a translucent mesh bag over it. So strange. My mind wouldn’t stop to the point that I no longer knew what a human was supposed to look like. Every memory that came into my mind was tainted by this realization, for example: if I saw myself talking to someone all I saw were these lines forming weird triangles and moving and readjusting as I spoke to other similar squiggly souls. All of this disturbed me to the point of feeling that life was meaninglessly confusing.
All this lasted till about 9 this morning and even know I feel sick and not myself so please excuse the typos. I’m curious to know if anyone has experienced something like this before whether it be edibles or not.
