FMW vs NJ - is the beef weak?

2023.05.29 01:17 onelostmartian FMW vs NJ - is the beef weak?

I dont even watch NJ since everyone left but tuning into the FMW universe of streams am I the only one tired of hearing No Jumper and the "beef" being used as a topic?
I really don't care that much if dudes were underpaid or underappreciated, the new platforms have won the audience but seem to be stuck on Adam and No Jumper.
When you really look into the details, the No Jumper platform didn't really do them that dirty and has put them in their current position, compared to other podcast beefs this is the weakest shit going.
People who really should have a bone to pick are Housephone and Lush.
Feel free to tell me I'm wrong.

2023.05.28 23:18 Delicious_Eagle9052 My delivery date is coming up in next 1.5 weeks. 23 M3P, anyone have any recommendations on places to sell your tires and rims?

I’m out of NJ, those summer tires ain’t gonna do me any good during the winter plus the various road conditions in this state so looking to just go purchase 18 or 19 inch rims and some new all season/all weather tires instead. If you have any recommendations on those too that’s appreciated but I have done my research a bit already on this sub. Thank you👍🏼

2023.05.28 18:53 Abatania 49 [M4F] #NYC The Fakes Report! Week of 5/21/23

Hey there R4R people,
How was your week? Single 49 year old IT healthcare professional and podcaster here. As mentioned in last week's post, I simply CANNOT post another "single male seeks younger female please like cats and don't ghost" type of post, so I am continuing my series of weekly reports of the fakes, spammers and ghosts I encountered in my adventures in OLD that I experienced over the past week. Stalk my profile for my previous posts.
Fakes, scammers, and generally FUBAR people I encountered over the last week:
So there you have it. My fakes report for the week. To be perfectly honest, my interest in dating has never been weaker. I can only play this stupid awful dating game for shorter and shorter periods before I just don't want to bother.
Such is the state of OLD in late spring of 2023. OLD, as a source to meet people, is a tired, played out, awful way to find someone to settle down with. For every success story there are MILLIONS of awful stories of failed relationships, fakes, bots, scammers, and people so filled with red flags you can line an airport runway with them and land a plane.
Get involved in your community, volunteer, be active in local groups or your church, temple, or mosque, do ANYTHING else except think you'll actually meet a real, normal person on OLD>. Even the reddit r4r, which was cute for a while and was a throwback in some ways to the dating section that once was on CL, is now also run its course.
If you're an actual single, normal human being from the NY area and want to chat with me, say hi, if not, I'll be over here reporting on the fakes every week and just loving his life with his 5 cats.

2023.05.27 23:21 sejiro7 LONG INFO, BUT GOOD READ (PT 2.)


Slashed Tires, Threatening Phone Calls, Verbal Assaults by Strangers, Property Damage, Death Threats, Following on Foot or by Vehicle, Bizarre Notes and Drawings Left, Loitering, Anonymous False Accusations to Friends, Family, and Neighbors, Character Assassination, Smear Campaigns, "Black-Listing", Psychological Abuse, etc.


The following techniques are several types that are often used against Targeted Individuals. There are other techniques used, but these are some of the primary ones.


Anchoring is a technique employed by stalkers to implant a false motivation or reason behind the stalking preventing the victim from discovering the truth. In more sinister examples, Anchoring involves the implantation of evidence to persuade the victim some other group or organization is responsible for the abuse. Anchoring In Organized Gang Stalking, Anchoring is used to make the target have fear with things happening in your daily life that's considered to be normal. That can be done with frequent demonstrations. The key is the frequency just like other Organized Gang Stalking methods. For example, People show you a pen every where you go, and their attitude is rude or crazy against you. You don't know them. You just wonder what's going on. Imagine that happens everyday, for a week, for a month, for a year, then, that makes you have fear with a pen. In this case, a pen is ANCHORED with your state of fear. It can be anything. An open car door or trunk, a pencil, a cell phone, notebook computer, a medical mask, clothes of the same color, anything. Every time I go somewhere during the day, an anchoring threat is made by car or truck with a door(s) or trunk open and no one in it sitting in someone's driveway along my route. This is a sign to get out!


This is when helicopters or planes are used to track targets that are on foot, or in cars. They fly over head and follow the targets from one location to the next. Some will monitor the targets shortly after they leave their homes.


The term Baiting is a stalking tactic used to lure a victim into environments, or situations, which cause further problems to the victim. Often Baiting involves tricking a victim into committing a crime or unknowingly engaging in an illegal activity. To lure into dangerous, difficult, or a compromising situations. Members of these Organized Stalking and Harassment groups will try to lure targets into various situations for the sole purpose of setting them up. Setting up targets could involve getting them arrested, institutionalized, set up on fake sexual harassment charges, drug charges, illegal pornographic materials, etc. Once this happens, it put's targets at risk for entrapment into becoming members themselves.


Brighting is shining or flashing bright head lights on targets As targets walk on the street, usually at night, members of these Organized Gang Stalking will turn on their high beams. This might be flashed once or twice at targets. This might be used to let targets know they are being watched, however these signals might also be a way for Informants in cars at night, to communicate with their fellow counterparts. The foot patrols will then communicate back to the Informant in the car, using a combination of hand signals you will see members of these groups riding around during the day with their headlights or hi beams on. The victim is usually followed and may be "flashed" from either a "tail-gating" vehicle or a passing or on-coming one. "Brighting" also occurs when bright lights are flashed into a victim's home-windows.


Targeted Individuals complain about being cut off, driven off the road, and near fatal or fatal car accidents. Pedestrian targets complain about cars that consistently cut them off, being hit by cars, and other almost near mishaps.


When the target is in public, members of these Organized Gang Stalking groups will usually try to box the target in. Eg. They will surround the target in a square like formation if possible. They will stand too close to the target, or swarm them. QUOTE "We experienced being mobbed by vehicles from CT NY and NJ at the beginning of our trip. Some of the gangs talkers were couples with their children along! Some smirked at us and showed weapons to us through their windows, though none actually fired upon us".


Color Harassment is literally the use of color to harass a victim. Usually, monochromatic color schemes are used, though this choice is pretty much up to the stalkers. An example of Color Harassment would be a line of stalkers, in red shirts, circling a victim. Color Harassment is often combined with other stalking tactics.


Convoy is a tactic of stalkers referring to the practice of a group of "tail-gaiting" cars passing repeatedly in front of the home of the victim. Vehicles used may be of the same color, and stalkers may honk the car horn or flash the car headlights as they pass.


Cyber Stalking or Cyber Harassment is a related group of harassing behavior occurring via internet/online. Cyber Stalking includes, but is not limited to; Computer Hacking, "Trolling", Spamming (Often including "Porn Deluges", Verbal Assaults, Character Assassination, and Impersonations of the victim. Online harassment is a plank of the harassment protocol. If you have a website devoted to Organized Stalking you may have people emailing you to flame you, or claiming that they are victims & asking for support with the intention of discrediting you. You may receive unsolicited email that parallels a current event in your life. Again, surveillance is used primarily for harassment. Or you may receive covert insults & threats. If you join a support group, you may also receive harassment via threads posted on message boards. Like other mediums of harassment, the topics of these threads may be about events that are unfolding in your personal life, as well as threats or insults covertly directed at you. This will probably happen repeatedly by the same person or people. They may also employ some Gaslighting, or Jacketing tactics. Jacketing was often used during Cointelpro to make genuine activists look like informants. Some internet groups which help stalking victims are heavily populated with perpetrators posing as victims. Some of these perpetrators seem to be very vocal & popular members of these support groups.


Directed Conversation is a term referring to a stalking tactic using stranger's conversation to both intimidate and to convey to the victim that they are under surveillance. During Directed Conversation, two or more stalkers will approach near to the target and engage in "normal" conversation with one another. The conversation is purposefully made at a level so that the victim can adequately hear what is being said. During Directed Conversation, personal information concerning the victim is inserted into the speech and emphasized by the stalkers in a fashion that most non-victims would not be able to discern as harassment. The purpose of Directed Conversation is to harass a victim, as well as make the victim appear mentally unstable should they attempt to complain about such abuse.These are conversations that complete strangers will have out in public relating to the target and their personal situations. Eg. They will repeat things a target said in their home, or on the phone. They will drop very personal details into the conversation, that could only be related to the target. Eg. Member #1. It's a shame Uncle Ed won't be able to come.Member #2. Yeah since he died golfing on Saturday. The target will just have learned of a death of a favored uncle, (possibly named Ed.) while out golfing.


Electronic Harassment is the use of technological devices to spy on or cause harm to targeted victims. For example, exposure to a high magnetic field has been shown to induce hallucinations in humans while exposure to intense microwave radiation induces psychotic episodes and causes brain damage. A frequent form of Electronic Harassment involves beaming a low frequency "hum" or "tone" into a victim's home or general area. Over time, the exposure causes the victim to lose sleep, become agitated, and suffer the effects of prolonged stress. Such tactics are also being used in cases of hostage situations as well as covert government operations. Electromagnetic weapons and frequencies will be used on a target on their homes. The purpose of using the EMF (Electromagnetic Frequency) on targets ad their belonging are multifaceted. Electronic frequencies can destroy electronic equipment. Electronic frequencies can be used for monitoring and tracking inside the home, and at work. It can also be used for purposes of sleep disturbance. When those conducting these covert investigations feel that they have psychologically destroyed the target to where they are near breakdown they will start to use these weapons. They will also use these weapons if targets are not going along with their harassment protocol. Electronic Harassment Michigan Legislature Acknowledges the Existence of "Harmful Electro-Magnetic Devices"…/


Fake Credibility Reports. fake credibility reports are being used to subtly discredit and attack legitimate websites regarding Organized Gang Stalking, including the Gang Stalking World website. Under the guise of doing good for the community.


It has been indicated that targets will have warning markers placed against their files. The information is then shared with relatives, store keepers, friends, and the community at large. The files are usually not left behind, but they are used to prejudice and slander individuals against the target. These files can be used to engender the corporation of friends and associates of the targets. The files might have a picture of the target, and information about some alleged crime, incidents, that the target has been flagged for, or is under investigation for. The information is usually very convincing and helps to further get targets harassed by those around them.


Gas Lighting is a Psychological technique used my members of these groups The purpose of Gas Lighting is to make a victim question his or her sanity. Doing little things to try to make the target think that they are going crazy. Gas Lighting simply is trying to convince someone that they are crazy or "imagining things" Example if you mention Organized Gang Stalking to someone who knows about it and they tell you your crazy or paranoid they ARE Gas Lighting you. The term Gas-Lighting originates from the 1944 film Gaslight. In the movie, the character of Gregory Anton, played by actor Charles Boyer, attempts to drive the character Pauline, played by actress Ingrid Bergman, insane. The phrase Gas-Lighting has come to mean similar actions and behavior, as used in the film, against a victim. 1944 Gaslight staring Ingrid Bergman


The term Ghosting refers to the practice of rearranging, or moving, of a victim's home furniture, lawn decorations, desk decorations at work, etc. The purpose of Ghosting is to make a victim question his or her sanity. Ghosting is also designed to make others question the sanity of the victim, especially if the victim attempts to complain of the abuse.


Hand Gestures such as intentionally touching hand to face or bringing fist or hand to face while around person being targeted. Arm Gestures which involves members of these Organized Stalking and Harassment groups repeatedly driving by a targeted victims location or home holding their arms out of vehicle windows, usually in an unnatural awkward low position. As part of the Organized Stalking crime, victims are being daily subjected to and psychologically harassed by manipulated individuals participating in this intentional bizarre Arm Gesture harassment. It is a known fact that the individuals involved in the Organized Stalking and Technological Harassment crime syndicate are also involved in Criminal Racketeering/Sexual Exploitation/Human Trafficking Operations via the criminal utilization of Remote Neural Monitoring satellite technology, where these criminal individuals are illegally profiting (Racketeering) off of the technological Sexual Exploitation of victims. In some cases, these Arm Gestures are being utilized as a male masturbation sexual harassment reference that is designed to sexually harass and degrade targeted victims. It should also be importantly noted that female victims also report being harassed in a similar manner by individuals involved in the harassment by placing their fingers in their mouths while around the victim which is meant to be a female masturbation reference. The fact is the manipulated individuals involved in the Organized Stalking crime repeatedly and deliberately convey things to victims through symbolic references and numbers, which is also an attempt to cause targeted victims to falsely appear to be exhibiting signs of paranoid schizophrenia such as 'delusions of reference' when victims attempt to explain that they are being harassed by individuals holding their arms out of vehicle windows or making other gestures to them. The Arm gesture harassment has been continuously documented by victims and uploaded to the internet.


This involves setting up audio and some visual surveillance of the target. Bugging the targets phone. Surveillance in the targets residence Listening to cell phone and hard line conversations. Hacking into their computers and learning all about what the target is doing, sites they frequent. or planting things, This also helps to build a profile of the target, and it's also used for later psychological attacks against the target, via Parroting and Directed Conversations.

Examples Of Illegal Surveillance

Illegal Criminal Electronic Monitoring

Illegal Criminal Phone And Computer Taps

Illegal Criminal Remote Neural Monitoring


Mimicry or mirroring is a specialized form of harassment in which the stalkers publicly imitate every movement made by the victim. This is trying to copy things in a targets life. Leaving when they do. Dressing like they dress. Throwing out the garbage. Going to the bathroom Doing whatever the target is doing. This is all designed to be psychological warfare, so that the target again feels like they are under observation at all times.


Mobbing is a term that describes "Group Bullying". Of itself, Mobbing is not equated with Gang Stalking. However, Mobbing may be a tactic used by the perpetrators of Gang Stalking. Mobbing


A Noise Harassment Campaign is an orchestrated effort to produce stress in a victim through prolonged exposure to significant noise levels. A Noise Campaign can range from multiple neighbors routinely playing loud music, individual stalkers with air-horns or fireworks, or organized "repair work" that involves a high level of noise This will include anything from Loud vehicles, Loud mufflers doors slamming above you and below you. Garbage disposal slamming doors, Hammering intentionally slamming car doors loudly, loud stereos, stomping, at specific times, loud coughing, pots slamming, water running, cupboard doors being slammed, fridge motor running all night, power tools, etc.


Number Harassment is literally the use of numbers to Harass a target and victim, This can include the brainwashed members of these cults driving by a victims home at a certain time, exiting or entering the neighborhood at a certain set time, or performing a Harassment task or skit, at a certain time of the day or night, for the purpose of harassment to the target and victim. The Number Harassment may be done in synchronicity with other members of these cults, For example a member of the cult arrives home at 7:07 in the afternoon and another member of the cult leaves at 7:07 at the same time, The next morning, one of the same members of the cult leaves home at 7:07 followed by another member of the cult. The individuals that belong to these cults are using local police 10 ham radio codes, to harass and to convey harassment related themes to the individual being targeted for years at a time, the only logical explanation that can be drawn as to why these brainwashed cult members are using local police 10 codes to Harass other citizens, is that they have been deluded into thinking that they are somehow police,the idea behind the Number Harassment, is to get the individual being targeted sensitized to certain numbers, so that they can be constantly Harassed by use of these numbers. Most importantly the members of these cults have already been sensitized, conditioned, and brainwashed to these specific numbers, and are constantly looking to their watches and clocks, to see what the time is, in case they have a Harassment skit or order to perform at a specific time of the day or night, that has been passed to them by their criminal leader and organizer via a cell phone text. that's correct these cult members are actually being given a Harassment task and Street Theater Scripts to perform at a certain time of the day for the purpose of Harassment to another individual, despite the fact that the individual being targeted can easily document this Harassment and Cult behavior using a video camera with a date and time stamp, and sue the individuals for damages of Harassment and Emotional Distress.


Sensitization is a psychological term referring to the forced association between a stimuli and a corresponding reaction. Members of these groups use Sensitization to psychologically abuse a victim. For example, if a stalker constantly harasses a victim while wearing a blue baseball cap, then overtime the victim will begin to believe anyone wearing a blue baseball cap is a stalker and is coming to harass. Sensitization This is getting targets sensitive to an everyday stimuli. Eg. Colors, patterns or everyday actions. Eg. Red, stripes, pens, whistles, loud coughing, clapping, waves, keys jingling. Eg. Joe will be mobbed at work and as part of that daily mobbing his coworkers will loudly cough at him every time they harass him by calling him names like loser, worthless, lame, demented. They will slander him and have others as they are slandering him show disgust by glaring and coughing at him. Out in public they will follow him loudly and obnoxiously coughing at him. When he goes to stores they will get others to do the same. After months or years of this, Joe has become sensitive to this stimuli and it can be used to harass him without the names and the glaring looks. The association has been formed because of all the other harassment. Eg. A girl is sexually assaulted and a sock is shoved in her mouth during the assault. To keep her quite or stop her from pressing charges, the assailant, his friends and family will follow her around and throw socks in her path, mention it everywhere she goes and show her their socks every chance they get. She will get the message they are sending. Because of the brutal attack, she and what's happened after she is now sensitized. Sensitization undoubtedly creates an extreme level of fear in a victim, in direct fulfillment of the intentions of the stalkers. Sensitization


Street Theater is a term used to describe the odd-actions and behaviors that stalkers sometimes neighbors do in public, in an attempt to rile the victim. Such behavior often borders on the extremely bizarre and is aimed at a blurring of the boundaries between reality and fantasy in the minds of the victims. This is running into people that are acting very unusual, or people that are putting on a show or production, known as street theater. Eg. This could be as minor as public rudeness, or people acting out a harassment skit . There will usually be someone near by to see how you react to it. This is again looking for weakness or reactions. If you show an adverse reaction they will try to embellish on this and use it against you later on. Street Theater is Harassment skits done by strangers and neighbors who have been 'recruited' into these Stalking and Harassment groups. Examples of Street Theater: Baiting, Brighting, Color Harassment, Convoys, Directed Conversation, Ghosting, Mimicry, Noise Campaigns, etc.


Synchronized activities refers to the synchronized activities done by members of these groups to Harass a target which may include but not limited to neighbors arriving home at the same time or leaving home at the same time, or strangers or neighbors leaving or arriving home at the same time. E.g. One neighbor leaves his or her house at the same time another neighbor arrives home . E.g. 2 A neighbor arrives home and at the exact same time a complete stranger or pedestrian walks by a targets home. This synchronized activity is one of the main techniques used in harassing a target and is repeated. E.g. 3 A target leaves his or her home at the exact same time a neighbor who has been recruited into the harassment leaves their home followed by a airplane or helicopter flying overhead.this synchronized harassment will turn into a pattern and may include the use of numbers such as 2 neighbors arriving home At 3:13 and 2 other neighbors leaves their home at 3:30, the same neighbors arrives back home at 3:43. Synchronized Harassment Activities can be done with almost anything: Neighbors arriving/exiting at the same time aircraft flying overhead as neighbors are leaving or arriving home, Harassment telephone calls made to the targets home just as neighbors who have been recruited into the Harassment are leaving or arriving they key to this is timing and frequency. The main motivation behind Synchronized Harassment Activities is again that if the target complains about this type of Harassment he or she may be perceived as mentally ill.

2023.05.27 21:01 Key_Breakfast_2248 Snow tires

Disclaimer: I’m not knowledgeable with cars or anything related.
I live in northern NJ and got my license last June. Since I was a new driver, I was super anxious about driving in the snow/ice this past winter. I got myself snow tires (Nokian Tyres Hakkapeliitta 9 Winter Tire) even though my family told me I don’t need them since it doesn’t tend to snow super heavy in NJ. I got them just in case bc we do have bad storms sometimes and I wanted to be comfortable than be anxious about driving in possible black ice! Anyways this winter was not bad at all, it barely snowed 🤒. I don’t know what to do. My options are: Should I go back to the tires I had on before the snow tires and keep them on year round? I went to mavis tires and they told me they don’t put on used tires as a safety precaution. Or should I buy year round tires (seasonal I think it’s called?) and sell my snow tires?
Or should I just keep switching between my old tires and snow tires every year once winter comes? I feel like that’ll be expensive to do.
Please advise. Thank you

2023.05.27 01:43 cfa_studyonsunday Did Mavis put on the wrong tires?

On a road trip and within the first three hours got a flat on my front right tire - 255/55 Goodyear. Went to a Mavis Discount Tire in the town we were in and they talked me into replacing my front left one as well. We were in a rush to leave (took 4.5 hours to get it replaced) as we were already 5 hours behind on our itinerary and only just noticed they replaced them with 225/55 tires. Now I’m driving with two front 225/55 and two back 255/55 - is this an issue? Should I go back and get this sorted out or is it a non issue?

2023.05.27 00:20 D_W_Flagler Leviathan Death Roll Resources

Are you sick and tired of watching leviathan kill YOUR fic? Do you have trouble making decisions as to which capes you want to die? Do you wish to emulate the cruel unfeeling world of nightmares known only as Worm?
If your answer to any of those questions was "yes," you are in luck! With this handy google doc, you can let pure chance determine which characters in worm are killed by Jormungandr! Just like Wildbow! This is set to the canon leviathan fight, so if you wish to make it your AU, simply make a copy and edit the google doc however you like!
On a more serious note: I love the idea of rolling to determine deaths in an endbringer fight. It really does good job to convey how dangerous endbringers are, that they're beyond even the power of the narrative itself. I'm submitting this in part to give you a quick and easy way to roll for character deaths if that's what you want to do, but also because I want feedback. Did I miss something? Tell me. I swear to god if you don't I will Worm you.

2023.05.27 00:14 zbro3 Tires for sand

Does anyone have any tire recommendations for taking my Bronco Sport off-roading/in sand? I have an 2021 Outer Banks and take my car on the beach a lot here in NJ. But once it warms up and the sand gets too soft, I get stuck alot and wanna upgrade my tires. I'm not too concerned about gas mileage changing. In a year I'm hoping to get the car lifted a few inches too. Any help would be great!

2023.05.26 20:35 theboygoddess How do we feel about Donn (and other musings)?

So, I’m still dealing with some post-rewatch depression after a complete RHONJ rewatch that I finished a few weeks ago…😔
I know it’s kinda weird but I think just cause I’m such an emotional weirdo of a bitch (Pisces moon, anybody?) I always end up getting attached and really involved in the storylines we go on during rewatches. And I went straight into binging the most recent season of NJ so it was just a lot and now it’s all over.
Since I finished, I’ve tried to fill the hole by rewatching all of Miami which was EPIC. I also recently started rewatching Dubai (live for Miss Ayan) and started rewatching OC but only from S4 because I wanted to skip all the early “docu-series” vibes and get right to the messiness.
I just finished the S5 reunion of OC and I’m on the couch in my robe gearing up for S6 👀 😂😂😂🧖🏻‍♂️
I was super curious to know how the fandom feels about Donn? I think he’s a really handsome older daddy-type and he seems goofy/kooky and like he’s not perfect but he just needed some extra love and attention. Of course I have no idea what he’s like off camera or behind closed doors, but it’s been almost painful for me to watch him get treated like dirt by Vicky. I mean, he calls the woman, “Victory,” for crying out loud. He’s just so cute and while I know it takes two to tango, I feel like he always seemed to want his marriage and was truly blindsided but what would later become of it.
SECONDLY…I hate Gretchen Rossi more than I think I’ve ever hated anyone and I can’t even accurately explain how or why. I googled when she leaves and was so fucking disappointed that it’s not until SEASON 8 because like, I’m so tired of that demon in bad pageant makeup and her bullshit omg. From her voice to her confessionals to her laugh, she just really gets under my skin and I can’t imagine a world where anyone ever liked her or she was a…fan favorite?!?!
What are your feelings on Gretchen? Donn? Dubai? 🤔💭🤣😡

2023.05.25 22:31 not4everjust4now My (Many) Shows of May Act 2

Fair warning: this will be a long post as your girl has been BUSY putting her butt into seats at various shows this month. I’m on mobile and have limited formatting options but did my best to make it all make sense. TL;DR I saw 12 shows this month (only two full-price) and 13 if you count the month from April 25 to today and the following are my thoughts on each. Act 1 here
Summer, 1976 7pm
Right Orch D120
Paid $102.50 (TKTS)
Loved this show - felt organic in the way that I was having two friends tell me a story they’ve told so many times that it’s a part of their mythology. Only part I didn’t like was that they didn’t dim the house lights (this was another show where I felt like I was an interloper at the retirement home’s field trip).
The Sign in Sidney Brustein’s Window 7pm
Center Orch AA 105
Paid $40 (lottery win)
Shocked at how excellent a seat this was for a lottery win. Enjoyed the show despite it feeling a little sluggish at various points. The actors were great with Mavis and Gloria stealing the show. Enjoyed myself but never felt completely immersed in the show and the message felt..murky? A big long lead up to the point which could’ve been condensed.
Prima Facie 8pm
Front Mezz C119
Paid $110.20 (TKTS; bless the fast pass line on a rainy Saturday evening)
I was so excited to be able to snag a discounted ticket as earlier in the day I’d been considering buying one for $315 closer to the run’s end. Jodie Comer was spectacular in the role and you could see the nuance and emotion in her acting even from the mezz. Lighting was stunning and the story was gripping albeit feeling slightly belated. Enjoyed myself but once again found myself thankful to have not paid full price.
Anthony Rapp’s Without You 2pm
Center Orch A9
Paid $99 (full price)
I loved RENT growing up as did my mom so I took her as a treat. I read his book on a flight and cried the entire time I was in the air. Even if you weren’t a fan of RENT I feel as if this would resonate with almost anyone (though the lyrics to the songs he wrote were..uninspired let’s say). I don’t think anyone in the house had a dry eye and, to be honest, I don’t know how he can perform this so consistently as he essentially must break his own heart at every show. Glad I brought some napkins to cry into. The $99 felt worth it and I didn’t feel as if I would’ve been better served paying less.
Bad Cinderella 8pm
Center Orch K102
Paid $57 (TDF)
My mom loves Broadway days with me so I figured I’d make this a double header and wanted to see the show before it closed. She’s not picky so I figured we’d have fun. This was my first TDF purchase and I was pleasantly surprised and how good the seats were (especially upon looking up what they would’ve cost without the membership). I went in expecting this show to be a total slog where I was laughing at the performers instead of with them but I was delighted. It was campy and funny and light..basically like a beach novel but in Broadway form. Sure, the revolutionary plot kind of fizzled but I hardly even noticed between all of the wordplay, beefcakes, and bops. (For real, that first number is a BANGER and I’m sad I have to use YouTube to listen to it). Since I’ve seen all of these shows in fairly rapid succession I’m surprised a show like Sweeney Todd got nominated for a Tony in choreo and bad Cindy didn’t. Sets were fun though dizzying (and had me flashing back to Peter Pan Goes Wrong), ensemble costumes looked beautiful, and the thing I liked least was the voice of the actress who played the title role. This show by far had the WORST crowd in terms of etiquette - LOUD talking during quiet parts, tons of cell phone usage etc.
Honorable mentions to the lottery tickets I won and gave away to friends and redditors: Camelot 05.05.23 8pm, Hadestown 05.11.23, A Beautiful Noise 05.14.23.
Just got an email and it looks like I won lottery tickets to Life of Pi tomorrow. Still unsure if I’ll scoop them or not because I’m feeling tired and I’m working all weekend but we’ll see.

2023.05.25 20:43 Smol-Alicia My thoughts on the new helluva boss episode (S2 EP 4)

So going into to the episode my expectations were very high considering we were introduced to a new character ( Andrealphus ) and also getting to see Striker again. Although even with so much potential the episode unfortunately fell short. Before I go into what I disliked about the episode I'd like to talk about what I actually did like. -Pros- -Animation: Well of course this is an obvious one. The animation in this series has always been the best part about it. Especially the fight scenes and angles of some intense scenes that really grab your attention. -Millie and Moxie: I'm happy to see more of our favorite couple get more action scenes together. Especially seeing moxie take down those bikers and almost killing striker. -Seeing a different side of Loona was nice too. I'm happy to see blitzo being an amazing dad to loona and doing his best to comfort her anxiety. -The text messages really showed how truly one-sided Blitzo and Stolas relationship is. We know deep down Blitzo cares about stolas but him leaving stolas on read really hit us hard. -Stella being bratty was really funny to me and showed us how she wasn't really that smart, just spoiled rotten especially by her brother. -Cons- -Andrealphus: Was hoping to get more out of his character rather than his flirtations towards Stella, ew. Plus, he could have suggested killing Octavia so stella would be able to inherit everything. I'm also not a huge fan of his design either. -Stolas: One of the most powerful demons and still manages to get caught so easily. Like I get you expected Blitzo to come help rescue you but he has a life of his own! Also did Blitzo seriously never warn Stolas about Striker?? -Striker: Wow.. talk about character assassination. From an intimated murderer to an egotistical prick is just so sad. Also, the statue of him trying to be funny just reminds me of the stereotypical adult animated humor. Just egos and insults. Of course, no surprise I'm not a fan of the new voice but maybe it's something that'll take time to get used to. Better than his new douchey personality. -Plot B: I'll be honest I don't find this pointless whatsoever. ALTHOUGH the way it was handled could have been better. The transitions were good, but I honestly felt Plot A and Plot B were too cramped in for a 19-minute episode. They definitely felt rushed and the music mixing between the plots was pretty bad. Was hoping Loona would have been thankful for her dad being there for her but not even a word came out from her. It would have showed them building up their relationship together. Just another episode of her not talking. -Also, the sexual jokes are getting annoying and tired of hearing excuses for it.
I don't believe it's the worst episode from the series but it's far from the best. My overall score is a 6/10.

2023.05.25 18:03 samanthrajgarela-top solution for oily hair type


Are you tired of dealing with greasy, oily hair that seems to never stay clean? If so, you're not alone. Oily hair is a common issue that many people struggle with. In this comprehensive guide, we will delve into the world of oily hair types, exploring the causes, symptoms, and most importantly, the best shampoos that can help combat this pesky problem. So, get ready to bid farewell to oily hair and say hello to fresh, vibrant locks!

Understanding Oily Hair

What Causes Oily Hair?

Before we dive into the solutions, it's crucial to understand what causes oily hair in the first place. The scalp naturally produces sebum, an oil-like substance that helps keep our hair moisturized. However, certain factors can trigger excessive sebum production, leading to oily hair. Common causes include:
  1. Genetics: Some individuals have genetically predisposed oil glands, resulting in naturally oily hair.
  2. Hormonal Changes: Fluctuations in hormone levels, such as during puberty, pregnancy, or menopause, can increase sebum production.
  3. Overwashing: Paradoxically, washing your hair too frequently can strip away the natural oils, prompting the scalp to compensate by producing more sebum.
  4. Incorrect Hair Products: Using hair products that are too heavy or not suitable for your hair type can contribute to oil buildup.
  5. Stress and Diet: Stress and an unhealthy diet can disrupt hormonal balance, leading to excessive sebum production.

Identifying Oily Hair

Now that we've explored the causes, let's identify the characteristics of oily hair. If you notice the following signs, chances are you have an oily hair type:

The Role of Shampoo in Managing Oily Hair

When it comes to combating oily hair, choosing the right shampoo is key. An effective shampoo for oily hair should possess the following qualities:
  1. Clarifying: Look for shampoos that have clarifying properties to remove excess oil, dirt, and product buildup.
  2. Balancing: The ideal shampoo will strike a balance, removing excess oil without stripping away essential moisture.
  3. Gentle: Oily hair can sometimes be accompanied by a sensitive scalp, so opt for a gentle shampoo to avoid irritation.
  4. pH-Balanced: A pH-balanced shampoo helps maintain the natural acidity of the scalp, preventing excessive sebum production.
Now, without further ado, let's explore some of the best shampoos available that are specifically formulated for oily hair.

Top Shampoos for Oily Hair

1. Mamaearth Tea Tree Shampoo

Mamaearth Tea Tree Shampoo is a popular choice among individuals with oily hair. This shampoo is infused with the goodness of tea tree oil, which is known for its antibacterial and antifungal properties. It effectively cleanses the scalp, removes excess oil, and reduces dandruff. The gentle formula soothes the scalp, leaving your hair feeling fresh and revitalized.

2. Neutrogena T/Sal Shampoo Scalp Build-Up Control

Another excellent option for managing oily hair is the Neutrogena T/Sal Shampoo Scalp Build-Up Control. This shampoo contains salicylic acid, which helps to exfoliate the scalp and remove excess oil and buildup.

Jaddu - 150 Wickets! submitted by poochi to csk [link] [comments]

2023.05.25 16:20 shoshana20 I make $100,000 and spent $1,050 while on a birthday trip to Montreal

Note: where applicable I converted from CAD to USD because I am American
Section One: Bio
Age: 25 (as of Sunday!)
Occupation: Market Development in the EV space – this and my salary are new since my last diary
Hometown: Hudson County, NJ, but left from my parents’ house in the Hudson Valley because it shortened the drive and I used my dad’s car
Number of PTO days and how you accrue them: 10 days of PTO, plus 2 personal days, plus you can buy up to 5.5 additional days out of your paycheck which I did, plus I get every other Friday off and can move my Fridays around for trips. So for this I moved my Friday and took my two personal days.
Section Two: Assets + Debt
Retirement Balance (and how you got there): like 3k in my account at my old job because I left before matching vested, nothing in my new account yet because I set it up a couple weeks ago but the withdrawing hasn’t started yet. If I stay at this job two years I will be eligible for a pension.
Equity if you're a homeowner (and how much you put down & how you accumulated that payment): N/A
Savings account balance: 11,000
Checking account balance: 35,000 I know this is super high but my housing situation is about to drastically change – my roommate who owns all the furniture is moving out and I’ll be staying in the apartment myself, so I want to keep the liquidity for now
Credit card debt (and how you accumulated it): none, I pay off every month
Student loan debt (for what degree): none, I have a bachelor’s and master’s from SUNY schools and the low in-state tuition and upstate COL + merit scholarships + parents covered it
Anything else that's applicable to you: I took this trip with my twin who makes $55,000
Section Three: Income
Main Job Monthly Take Home: still normalizing as my deductions start getting processed, but roughly 6,000. I’ve only gotten two paychecks so far.
Side Gig Monthly Take Home: none
Any Other Monthly Income Here: none but I am an authorized user on my parents’ CC and because this was a birthday trip they covered misc expenses
Section Four: Travel Expenses
Transportation: nothing except gas costs because I drove my dad’s car. And the emotional toll of the drive, of course.
Accommodations: $1167 for four nights in a nice hotel with a pool and hot tub in downtown Montreal. This is the total and my sister and I split it half and half. It includes an additional charge for garage parking.
Pre-Vacation Spending: nothing specific to this trip
Please include the spending for each category as well as the total.
Food + Drink: $243
Fun / Entertainment: $146 – I included gift shop souvenirs in this category
Home + Health: $0
Clothes + Beauty: $0
Transport: $46
Section Five Use this section to share how you afforded this trip.
I did not save specifically for this trip, I recently got a large raise and had a decent chunk in savings regardless. Parts of the trip were also subsidized by my parents because it was a birthday trip with my twin.
Thursday 5/18:
Morning: woke my sister up at 8:30 and we hit the road by 10, we met at my parents’ house on Wednesday night. My dad generously filled up the car before we left so I don’t need to worry about that for at least a couple more hours.
Afternoon: stop in Lake George for a nice, leisurely lunch to stretch our legs and walk around the lake a bit. We pay $27 for okay food at the slowest pizzeria I’ve ever been to in my life as well as $2 for lot parking because I refuse to parallel park, ever. I should add here that this vacation is on “hard mode” because my sister and I do not do indoor dining and unfortunately many places have gotten rid of outdoor dining that was set up earlier in the pandemic, so at points our options were limited. Back in the car after spending an hour in the town. I hadn’t been to Lake George in over a decade so it was a nice if brief visit. Stop and spend $30 on gas because I can’t emotionally handle having less than a half tank. The gas is on my parents’ card and won’t be counted in the total.
Getting through customs is mercifully easy and we check in to the hotel a little after 4. I only cry once, while trying to drive through downtown Montreal.
Evening: we venture out to find some dinner and walk a mile to a restaurant we went to when we were last in Montreal in 2017, only to find that their outdoor dining is not in fact open. It is a tiny bit chilly out so we run into this issue two more times before finding a place whose patio is available. I get a rack of lamb with polenta (delicious!) and some sort of whiskey sour. $52 including 20% tip, I love the exchange rate. We go back to the hotel and spend some time in the pool before heading out to a dispensary. My sister gets two joints and a weed seltzer, but I don’t do weed so have no idea how much she spent.
After dinner my sister and I REALLY wanted to go to a rooftop bar and we find a place with a fun looking cocktail menu on top of a hotel. I get a weird cocktail that mixes tequila, absinthe, and some other stuff that I’m not sure of. It’s really good! My sister manages to spill her frozen drink all over herself, the table, and the floor after only having 3 sips of it, so I buy her another drink because she is obviously so defeated. I do not drop this event for the rest of the trip and change her name in my phone to “banana colada.” $53 for three cocktails and tip, but my sister reimburses me for tip because she insisted I tip a full 20% to try and compensate for the cleanup that will be needed from her drink
Daily total: $134
Friday 5/19:
Morning: Our first day! We start with online ordering takeout bagel sandwiches and iced coffees from a nearby local chain, $22 which we split between the two of us. Our first plan for today is the botanical garden so I buy tickets for both of us on my phone for $25 while we walk to the metro stop. We each get a 3 day metro pass for $16/each. The garden is lovely although we are a bit too early in the season for the roses. After a beautiful and only slightly sunburnt couple of hours at the garden, my sister books us tickets for the fine arts museum on her phone and we go to the gift shop. Nothing really impresses me but I get an insectarium themed reusable bag because we don’t have one and my sister got a bunch of stuff that needs carrying $17
Afternoon: Museum of fine arts was maybe a mistake because we are both already so, so tired, but we persevere and make it through the entire Canadian art pavilion. We breeze through the international art pavilion because neither of us particularly care for the pre-modernism sections and also it’s basically the same as it was in 2017. The gift shop here is somewhat more gratifying and I get a polar bear keychain designed by an indigenous artist as well as a magnet for my parents. $11
Evening: We didn’t have lunch because we went right from the botanical garden to the museum so decide to head right to yesterday’s failed restaurant for an early dinner. Their patio is open today and we split an order of calamari, each get our own order of moules frites, and each get a strawberry daiquiri. $70 including tip but my sister pays with the agreement that I’ll get our next big meal
Daily total: $80
Saturday 5/20
Morning: same routine and breakfast as yesterday, $22 again. Today is my personal highlight, the national rail museum! My sister paid for the tickets as a thanks for me driving us to and from Montreal. I drive us to the museum because it’s basically a suburban train yard and there is no good public transit option.
Afternoon: I have an absolute blast, take a million photos, and we spend $3 paid for by my sister to add a vintage trolley ride to our visit. I go absolutely ham at the gift shop and spend $31 on a shot glass, a wind-up train car, an Exporail tote bag, and a silly little keychain that says “trains!” on it. I drive us back to the hotel and we have a late and heavy lunch. We each get a burger and fries, my sister gets a whiskey lemonade, and I get a raspberry mojito. I pay, $65. We go to the temporary exhibit the contemporary art museum has set up, $15 split between us. It’s a quick visit and then we walk over to Barbie Expo, which is free and delightful. Twilight Barbies! Celebrity Barbies! After the Barbie Expo we walk up to Mont Royal Park and just sit there a bit.
Evening: Because our lunch was so late and heavy we pick up premade charcuterie boards at a grocery store, $22. Spend the rest of the evening in the hotel and book tickets to the Biodome in the morning, $25.
Daily total: $138
Sunday 5/21
Morning: Birthday birthday birthday! Open the cards from our parents which they sent us with, they also tell us to put everything on their card for today. I will therefore note how much things cost but not include them in a total, except for my sister’s present and museum tickets. Breakfast from a different place, bagel sandwiches and mochas $22. We then head to the metro for the Biodome. It’s not really my thing but my sister is utterly enchanted, particularly by the penguins. At the gift shop I cover her stuff, which is a couple of penguin things, as a birthday present $30
Afternoon: My sister really wanted to go to the geology museum but didn’t actually check their hours, and they’re closed on weekends. The next best options is the archeology museum which is conveniently also at the old port, so we head there on the metro and I book the museum tickets on our way, $25. The layout of the museum is a little confusing but they have a really cool exhibit on pirates! We speed through the ancient Egypt exhibit because it’s really crowded and impossible to get close to most of the displays. Gift shop is a bust so we head out for a late lunch. My sister presciently chooses a restaurant with an awning which pays off when the sky opens for a 15 minute torrential downpour that was not in the forecast. Lunch is a charcuterie board, ricotta on crostini, and a peach bellini for each of us. I remember it cost a premium because it was by the waterfront but I did not record the cost.
Sister really wanted to go to a particular bagel store which is really out of our way and I am less than gracious about it, particularly when the store is so popular that we need to wait outside just to go in and order. The store also does not accept international debit or credit cards so I run to an ATM that is mercifully on the corner and take out 20CAD, 9CAD/$7ish goes to her half dozen bagels. We take a bus that gets us within a mile of our hotel and walk the rest because the weekend buses apparently only run once an hour?
Evening: After decompressing in the hotel room for a bit we head back to the old port and just explore the waterfront for a while. There’s a refreshing breeze and the river is beautiful. We wander until we get hungry and wind up getting a birthday dinner at the first place with outdoor dining that has a decent looking menu. It’s a tapas (style?) meal of duck breast cooked with figs, calamari, and a spicy sausage with some sort of cauliflower thing. Plus a side salad because we’ve been neglecting our vegetables on this trip. I get a margarita but my sister who has stomach problems sticks to the tap water. $89 after tip.
Instead of getting dessert at the restaurant we walk to a bakery to get a “birthday cake,” aka she gets a chocolatine and I get a chocolate caramel…cronut? That’s not what they call it but that’s what it feels like. She also gets a bottle of water because she wants to stop and smoke the last of her joint on the walk back to the hotel. $12 paid by sister
Daily total: $62
Monday 5/22:
Morning: I get up before my sister because I am experiencing severe driving anxiety and I go out and get us the same breakfast as yesterday, $22. We manage to get checked out and leave the hotel a little after 10 and the drive is smooth until the US-Canada border. I remembered that US customs is slower than Canadian but they only have three lanes open and it takes two hours to go basically 1000 meters. People keep trying to cut the lines and it’s making an even bigger snarl. We got to the border a little past 11 and do not make it to the actual customs until 1:30.
Afternoon: tiktok voice it got worse but I think it’s about to get worser. After finally getting to customs and answering the questions they tell me to pull my car over for a search, I’m then told to leave everything in my car and go in the building. We go in and wait until two agents pull us into one of the questioning rooms. They keep asking us where we went and what we bought and my sister and I get increasingly confused until the guy finally informs us that we set off the weed-sniffing K-9 and we need to admit whether we have weed before they find it. But we have no weed! Our dirty laundry probably reeks because I was sitting downwind of my sister every time she smoked but there is no actual weed in the car because we’re not idiots who would take a federally illegal drug through a federal border. Tip: I am so fucking mad. The customs agent has the nerve to wish us a happy birthday after they go through all our stuff and find nothing.
Burned a crazy amount of gas just waiting on the line so I stop at the first station on the US side of the border, $30 while my sister goes in and gets us gas station hot dogs and a bottle of Diet Coke. The next 4 hours unfold uneventfully and we make it to our parents’ house at around 6.
Daily total: $52

2023.05.25 15:31 ifalatefa How to solve a problem like Teresa..

My hot take:
The issue with NJ is nothing different from what we've seen on NY, Potomac, Melbourne, etc. A tired cast, who aren't bringing the goods in their own story. They would rather drip rumours into the group to avoid exposing their own life's flaws. It gets old, and the lack of comedic relief makes it a chore to watch.
Does NJ even have a place for the Gorga-Guidice-Ruelas fued anymore? In my opinion, it's tired and feels like Groundhog Day. I think if Teresa and Melissa were relegated to friend of roles for the following seasons, we would be able to see Dolores and Jennifer step up into the spotlight and flourish. In time, perhaps the girls would realise they need to bring more to the show than their crappy rumours and fued. I also think as Luis/Louis/Lou and Teresa's marriage proceeds, we'll see cracks but only if they let their guard down by being off screen and getting "too comfortable" - I don't wish any bad vibes for their relationship but I do think they're militant on how they come across on screen now and they are really off.
(Also sorry for typos or anything. I'm an English teacher so it feels wrong, but I've also been awake for 24 hours with dire IBS so please forgive me)

2023.05.24 19:05 ksimm81 Ready to move out but rent is so darn high!!

I’m tired of living with him!!! I currently live with my former fiancée (and father of my child) because I can’t afford market rate apts anywhere else. Whenever I receive word of affordable housing, I apply posthaste! I have almost three grand saved, my credit score is improving and i have a decent job bringing my in $850 a week net. However I can’t afford $3,000 for a two bedroom here in northern NJ. I still have a car note, car insurance, grocery, utilities, etc to pay. It sucks rhinoceros a$$. Just had to vent. I’m grateful for a roof over my head but I’m not happy where I am right now.

Bike is from 2005, wheels are quite recently added (fulcrum racing 5 lg). It seems to be in decent conditions (perhaps just some new tires needed).
It would be my first bike to ‘taste’ the sport.

2023.05.24 04:40 EetechTom 15,000 service

I recently purchased a 2021 Camry that had an oil change, tire rotation, air filter replacement done at the selling dealership (in NJ) in January. The car was originally purchased in July of 2021. The 2 year coverage is soon to expire. My current mileage is 14,500. Mileage at purchase was 14,000. Guessing my local dealership (OH) will not be doing an oil change at the 15k service interval? I do live about 5 miles from work, wonder if I can use the short trip angle to convince them to do an oil change.
If the dealership won't change it, I will be doing it at the 6 month interval myself.

2023.05.23 21:50 UncleGearjammer Looking for some advice.

As some of ya'll in here may or may not know Tire Kingdom just got bought by Mavis. On some level I know my job really isn't gonna change all that substantially. I'm just kinda wondering if anybody that's gone threw it has any input. Should I start polishing up my resume or ride it out and see how it shakes out? I'm a master tech with 9 years w the company so I know if it sucks that bad I could go about anywhere and do just fine. I'm just not a huge fan of change.

Found on my lovesac couches :( think I’ve been getting bit past few nights. I don’t know where they came from, I’m in NJ, is my landlord at all on the hook or am I? Sorry, I’m just so stressed and tired right now 😔

2023.05.22 22:38 fluxistrad What would the NJ Version of the RHONY Reboot Look Like?

RHONY's exciting reboot casting has me excited for a lot of reasons, mostly because my other two core teams are Atlanta and NJ, and those storylines all feel so tired and forced.
It got me thinking that it might be fun to think about what a NJ version of RHONY's cast refresh would look like. Andy has emphasized the new NY casting approach as being "all about the city" which is hard for NJ to pull off, but there's certainly lots to explore about NJ outside of Everyone Who Knows Me Knows I'm Italian and Family is the Most Important Thing.
For me, it seems like RHONY tried to think about the following when re-casting:
Please add more bullets, but I'm mostly collecting those thoughts so I can think about what a similar formula might look like for NJ. I don't care if Teresa or Melissa etc. get spinoffs or vacation series', I would just like to see a fresh start to a once-beloved franchise in NJ. :)
SO. Here's my initial thoughts. I'm thinking about 'categories' and think that politics, PR, activism, and influence could be an interesting angle for NJ, but so could something less expected, like vacations and travel, restaurants, food and wine, real estate.
Some ideas (note that I'm not suggesting this mix is a cast, more like some vibes to jam on):
Here's something I discovered while on this admittedly strange mission: young people, especially women, are leaving NJ for other states to start their businesses, and whether I'm looking for on-the-rise chefs, CEOs, fashionistas, or social influencers, it was hard to find women that had enough of a foundation to match the formula I gave myself. Looking for someone on an edgier level but with something real she's really driving was tough. Lots of amazing women FROM NJ, but harder to find someone under the radar but badass.
So what if we get a little more 'mainstream' on the search?
I'm sure there's lots of other fun and interesting options! What do you think?
