#3 delete my account in Requests

Really now? Enigma had no problem deleting Dashner's account and every single one of his posts when he was in trouble for sexual misconduct with fellow members of this very community! I see no reason why you shouldn't be able to do that for a relative nobody in this forum when strings were easily pulled for someone who was in potential legal trouble...

@sandstoner Until this bullshit is actually taken care of the way it should be, you can go and edit all your past posts to show no text. No one will be able to see what you've posted, only that you had posted something. Shouldn't take you too long since you don't have many posts here.

try removing the W keycap and blow some compressed air into the keyswitxh whilst you hold it down. If some dirt got in there, it could be what's causing your issue

#1 The Beatles - A Day In The Life Theory in The Dumpster

Huge nerd-essay incoming. Posting it in the dumpster cos I guarantee fuckin nobody actually cares about this.

The song A Day In The Life is the closing track on The Beatles' most iconic record Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. I have a very good reason to believe, as I'll explain shortly, why The Beatles are bringing forth issues of postmodernity, hyperreality, and alienation with this song/record.


Show Content
I do not think The Beatles are marxists/communists lol
I'm uncertain as to how much of this was actually premeditated by the composers of this song themselves, however, given how deep the metaphors seem to run, I feel confident in saying that they were generally pointing in this direction themselves. Even if they had no idea about any of these concepts and were just really high, I think this'll prove to be a fascinating way of understanding the world through art

The Song's Place in Context of the Album
So first of all, the song takes place at the end of the Sgt. Peppers album, but more precisely, it plays after the fictional Sgt. Peppers band play their outro. So A Day In The Life is seemingly the album's epilogue; It's no longer playing along with the "fictional band" idea, but is lifting the mask off, and we see The Beatles performing as The Beatles themselves. This is just the first of many layers of irony/hyperreality.

John's First Two Verses
John is mixing up and interweaving different narratives/perceptions of events as perceived through media - particularly the news, a film based on a book, and the book itself. Yet even still the narrative is confusing and the crowd seems to play into this confusion - They stare at the horrific accident but turn away at the sight of the English army winning the war in the movie. John is precisely depicting a higher level conflict between his reality and the "crowd's" reality, but both/all conceptions are ultimately confused and ambiguous.
Then the famous "I'd love to turn you on" line, obviously in reference to the idea of turning on a television - again, another form of media consumption and source/cause of alienation.

Waking Up - Paul's Verse
What follows is the orchestral build-up, followed by the sound of the alarm clock and Paul's verse. Paul's verse is meant to be straightforward - He just got up from the confusing dream depicted in John's first two verses, and gets on with his daily routine. Here, everything is perfectly normal until the very last line in his verse "somebody spoke and I went into a dream" and the bridge back to John's third verse - Even in our day to day routine when we are seemingly dealing with surface-level reality, we are sucked into a confusing, almost transcendental hyperreality.

You get the deal at this point - John's third verse is the same thing; Depiction of nonsensical hyperreality. The "I'd love to turn you on" and orchestral build up come back once again, signalling that, not only have we not escaped this encapsulating simulation, we're seemingly in search for more alienation from this same alienation.

The Outro - Is The Song Ever Really Finished?
My favourite bit. The song ends, instead of with a dissonant orchestral improvisation, it ends with a perfectly harmonious piano chord, signalling we have seemingly escaped the cycle, are at peace, and that the song is over. Yet this is far from the case. The irony here kicks in on multiple levels.

  1. You, as the listener, are consciously going through reality enjoying a song about alienation and hyperreality. By simply listening to it, you are a further layer deeper into this simulation than the narrators of the song themselves.
  2. After the piano chord drowns out, the vinyl pressing of the album has a locked grove at the very end, with the sound of a TV being turned on and looping infinitely. The irony here is multiplied - You as the listener have no choice but to endure the alienation of postmodernity for the rest of time (represented by the locked grove which plays out infinitely). When you chose to turn off your turntable and switch off the record however, you go back into your daily routine, and continue on with the simulation nonetheless.Switching off the music is not an escape from hyperreality, but an escape into it.

In Conclusion
This shit blows my fuckin mind bro. The fact that all of this is at the end of a concept album where The Beatles pretend to be a fictional band; The entire albums metaphor is recursively presented once again in the album's closing track

#144 gush your happiness in Off Topic

Honestly today is something special. So much good music being released today that I'm having difficulty figuring out where to even begin. New Isaiah Rashad single dropped, as well as new albums from Squid, Ziur and Skee Mask, the last of which released one of my alltime favourite albums last decade. Super excited to chug buckets of coffee and listen to all this great music :)))

#1 My cat's last day in Off Topic

Today, after a beautiful 17 year long-life, we made the difficult decision to put my cat, Blue, to sleep, after seeing that his kidney problems worsened and were having a sever impact on his quality of life with no prospect of getting better.

Blue was an absolutely amazing companion. After practically being raised together, we understood each other intimately. He could read me like a book and I the same with him :)
Thank you for joining me in wishing Blue a good farewell <3 Make sure to do what you can in order to cherish those around you, animal or otherwise :)

Everybody wants to be a cat.

#3 Looking for some movie guys :) in Off Topic

I'm not a huge movie buff, but my favourite movie is probably Birdman Or The Unexpected Virtue Of Ignorance. Uncut Gems is also a movie I saw recently which I loved from start to finish. Watch Citizenfour if you're in the mood for a brilliantly produced documentary =)

#21 anyone listen to any new good music lately? in Off Topic

absolutely do check out the new Black Country, New Road album. It's brilliant. Imagine a fan-made sequel to Slint's Spiderland but it's actually kinda better than you would have imagined how Slint would have done it.

#21 best series of all time? in TF2 General Discussion

i58 LBF - Full Tilt vs Froyotech

✅ b4nny vs. Thalash beef in the months prior to i58 put a lot of pressure on both teams to turn up
✅ alleged drama with Muma at LAN (iirc he wanted to quit playing for Froyo halfway through the series but wasn't allowed to and started throwing just to piss off b4nny)
✅ Mike.
✅ Muma unveils Muma Rollouts

This was one for the ages. Doesn't matter that FT went on to lose Grand Finals. They already won here.
