32F - Let's dread what the last months of 2020 reserve together
2020.08.31 23:38 comingtogetyoubabs 32F - Let's dread what the last months of 2020 reserve together
Hey there, just another tropical soft goth with back problems and deep seated anxiety. I'll be 33 in a couple of months, live with two adorable furry assholes (possibly a witch's familiars?). Im from Brasil and this year the knocks just seem to keep on coming. Could really use a friend to chat and take my mind off of everything.
I'm a freelance journalist (though work's been slow and I'm considering becoming an intergalactic diplomat so I can flirt with sexy aliens), a meme queen, a bit of a geek and a couch potato who nonetheless enjoys hiking (doesn't everyone?). Probably change my hair more than my outfits.
My hobbies include anime, movies and TV (especially horror), videogames (total casual, though), vegan baking, music, going out for drinks with friends, reading (mostly contemporary fiction, poetry, horror and fantasy), writing and procrastinating on the internet.
I really love the sound and smell of rain and the ocean, but am a city girl through and through. I also prefer tea to coffee (which I actually don't drink at all) and a G&T to a beer. I also love meeting new people, which I guess is what drew me to my profession.
Perks: I can always send cute cat pics.
Cons: bit of a mess, really.
Feel free to send me a chat with your current favorite song, vent about anything that's on your mind, tell me what your death row last meal would be or just a little about yourself, if you think we'd click.

2018.09.14 21:04 Dictarium Pop Essentials 3.0: the Poptimist's Playbook
Pop Essentials 3.0: The Poptimist's Playbook Welcome to my Pop Essential Albums List 3.0, my third attempt at curating the uncuratable: a definitive list of the most important, most influential, and most high quality pop music albums from the 1950s until the modern era. We'll dive deeper into what that means in a sec. If you haven't yet, take a look at my two previous attempts at making a list like this:
So, before we get into the list itself, and the role that YOU, the popheads users, will have in this version of the Pop Essentials, let's take a look at the changes to this list from the previous one(s).
Now, without further ado, the Pop Essentials 3.0!
- It's bigger. The last iteration of the Pop Essentials List had 179 albums, and the one before that only had 120 albums. This one has 250. Pitchfork recently released their top 200 albums of the 1980s, which should give you a sense of how difficult it was, in the past, to only pick 22 or 33 albums from that decade, and even fewer from others. Any leeway I could give myself, I took, and I think the list is better for it.
- Embedded in that increased list length is my attempt to incorporate more foreign-language and non-American pop albums into the list. Pop is a global art form with influences from a myriad of unique cultures, and I think that failing to include those touchstones in an essentials list stands to make that list less legitimate. The most eclectic the last list got in its selection was Kraftwerk, Selena, Daft Punk, and M.I.A., so we had some work to do.
- This time, I've selected representation from East Asia, Europe, and Latin America with over 25 albums either made by non-Anglo artists (e.g. Hikaru Utada's First Love) or using non-Anglo musical styles (e.g. Harry Belefonte's Calypso).
- I've kept with my 3-year moratorium on declaring an album "essential," and that means that this year, 2015 albums are eligible for selection. There are 8 of them on the list because 2015 was a GOAT music year by any measurable standard. This means that a certain album which has been talked about a few times on this subreddit will make its first appearance on the list.
- No more greatest hits albums. This felt like cheating. It's a glorified way of shoehorning singles into an albums list. The biggest implication of this is that ABBA's Gold has been replaced with Arrival.
- I got rid of the playlists. They're kinda dumb and hard to curate.
- The pophead's userbase, and not me, will be selecting the Platinum Essentials List this time around. The point of this list is to give a shorter, more palatable version of the Essentials list. Check the bottom of this post for a link to a Google Form poll. You will allowed to be make as many selections per decade as will be included in the Platinum Essentials List, and that number will be proportional to how many albums are on the Pop Essentials 3.0 list (i.e. the 50s will not have lots of albums, the 00s will have lots of albums).
- In one or two weeks (depending on participation), I will post the results in a new self-post, and see if I can bother the mods to link to it in either the Wiki or Sidebar, since it will finally be a true, sub-generated essentials list OTHER than that awful one that has spawned now three editions of Lutheran lists, nailed to the door of the church of /popheads itself.

You can feel free to give multiple selections to the same album. That's the power of your vote. You can spread it out among multiple albums you think deserve it, or put all your eggs in one basket!
I hope you all enjoy this third edition of my Pop Essentials List. I've been working on this one for a while. Please, if you have any suggestions for future editions of Pop Essentials, or you think that the Greatest Pop Album Of All Time was skipped, feel free to let me know!
There are more than a few albums that have made it on the current Pop Essentials because of suggestions in comments from previous editions!! This sort of thing would be especially appreciated in genres that aren't from my native culture, like Latin Pop, K-Pop, J-Pop, MPB, and any other international pop culture that you think should be included in the future.
Remember look out for a new post in a week or two (again, depending on participation) to see the results of the Platinum Essentials List, generated by you, the general popheads public.
pls discuss n thx.

2018.08.14 02:22 signalmodulator My favorite experimental dance/outsider music of this year so far
Hello you who is reading this! I did a post like this in March and people seemed to like it
, so I now am going to come back and do another for you. It can be uniquely difficult to find the best new electronic/avant-garde music. It's a genre of music that requires a lot of active digging, with little interaction with the pop sphere, little coverage from music publications, and little accessibility to people who aren't already deep in the rabbit hole. That's why I like doing these posts - to throw some records your way to see if you like them, reach out to the people here who DO like these records, and to provide myself with a little recap about why I love listening to music so much. Sincerely, I hope you get somethin out of this.
My top 5 must-listen records from the last few months:
Other great albums (in order of how much I think you should hear them):
- Autechre's NTS Sessions (April, Warp)
- In a sentence: The most important and ruthlessly creative electronic music of this year, and arguably this decade.
- Recommended if you like: Aphex Twin, SOPHIE, Arca, Star Wars
- Why to listen: Autechre are IDM pioneers from the '90s who simply never stopped advancing their craft. This 8-hour release is the culmination of their groundbreaking recent work with algorithmic composition using software like Max MSP to create brainmelting future pop music. If you want to know what future music could sound like, this is probably one of the least convoluted places to look.
- When to listen: During the eight hours of free time that most of us have readily available to devote to listening to weird computer music.
- Songs to sample: This is an important question for such a ridiculously long record - with that in mind, here are some essentials. Start with "gonk steady one," a contender among many listeners for the sessions' best piece of music. "violvoic" is another essential percussive track, even darker and more demonic than "gonk steady one". For the most convential dance track, check out the incredible "four of seven". Finally, if you're looking for something more ambient, try the reverie-inducing "e0", or dive in and experience the incredible hour-long closing track "all end", which someone on RYM aptly described as "like listening to stars as they explode into little tiny pieces."
- GAS's Rausch (May 18, Kompakt)
- In a sentence: A sublime, genre-transcending formless piece of music in which emotions of doubt, guilt, fear, and power are dyed into the fabric of a repetitive beat.
- Recommended if you like: Swans, Tim Hecker, The Field, conquering bad trips by embracing them
- Why to listen: I will quote a brilliant section from an essay in Ethos Journal:
Voigt’s GAS recordings are atmospheric, otherworldly pieces of music. Throbbing gently under a 4:4 kick, they unspool in long-form, ambient drones and washes concealing barely-audible fragments of horns, strings, record hiss and wind. Voigt follows the lead of the early house and techno pioneers in his compositions, trusting the cold regularity of his kick drum to house the textural swells that unfurl in between. At times Voigt will pull the force out of his kicks, leaving the side-chained washes to represent the beat as absences, percussive pulses of negative space. Texture and beat mutually attract and repel, shifting the listener’s attention from one then to the other as regularity and irregularity phase past one another. The GAS recordings are a space of repetition and reflection: space rather than statement. While uniquely beautiful, GAS is by no means unique in these respects. Instead, the recordings play into a tradition that imagines music along lines altogether distinct from that of the pop song or the classical arrangement. Tracks typically run in excess of eight minutes, dissipating Voigt’s artistic personality in the overwhelming atmosphere and repetition. Absent are the peaks and valleys of the pop song or the breakdowns that characterize the current EDM scene; GAS, like Acid House, or even Daft Punk, relies upon repetition to eliminate the possibility of a denoted meaning of a song. GAS utilizes these patterned, uncompromising repetitions to tap into an ambience that provokes movement from its listeners, just as it dissolves the focal points common to communal musical experiences: the charismatic frontman, the genius composer, the laser-light show.
- When to listen: On a cold night in the forest.
- Songs to sample: It's all one big song! Just start at the beginning and see if it grabs hold of you. Be patient.
- Yialmelic Frequencies' Yililok (May 18, Leaving)
- In a sentence: Therapeutic, ASMR-informed music that is just as sublimely beautiful as it is uncannily soothing.
- Recommended if you like: Suzanne Ciani, Kelly Lee Owens, Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith, Four Tet, being a hippie stereotype
- Why to listen: This is just fantastic, and so overlooked! If you love electronic music that emphasizes spiritual healing, this is a must-listen. Even if you don't fully buy into it (which is fine - I don't), this is carefully considered music full of sonic subtleties, beautiful chords, and emotional tenderness.
- When to listen: In a bath, or in bed.
- *Songs to sample: If you want the ASMR side of things, go straight to "Auric Massage". If you'd like a more well-rounded musical experiment, check out the radiant rising synth melodies of opener "Aggregate".
- Eartheater's Irisiri (June 8, PAN)
- In a sentence: Just like the album cover -- an unusual blend of alien grossness and graceful traditionalism, a bewitching potion of harp and hip hop flows, forest sounds and industrial queerness
- Recommended if you like: Arca, Joanna Newsom, Grimes, Oneohtrix Point Never, Travis Scott
- Why to listen: This is one of those experimental albums that has such a uniquely singular voice that it deserves all the attention in the world. Alexandra Drewchin's vocals are fluttery and angelic, but her music is often vulgar and frightening - there is always a cathartic marriage between the two polar opposites.
- When to listen: After dark, walking around somewhere green and misty.
- Songs to sample: Opener "Peripheral" is the perfect appetizer. "Inhale Baby" is ridiculously creative and a good indicator of the sounds featured on this record. Finally, "C.L.I.T." is the cavernous climax of the album.
- Réelle's Ghamccccxc vRR (May 25, Danse Noire)
- In a sentence: A frighteningly discordant album borne out of psychotic episodes, this album plunders the depths of human expression by exploring a realm that feels completely unmapped.
- Recommended if you like: Arca (again), Amnesia Scanner, exploring your own repressed dark impulses and attractions
- Why to listen: Réelle harnesses the same traits in Arca's dysphoric dance music to explore their own list of grievances - if you like Arca's ruminations on queerness, gender, and physical form, then you might like the way Réelle explores themes of psychosis, religion, and the body's relationship with the mind.
- When to listen: Definitely inside, definitely somewhere personal to you. Other than that, the music is so visually evocative that it's super effective anywhere!
- Songs to sample: "Luciferian" is my personal favorite - jesus christ, the drop in this track hits harder than any other song I think I've heard in this genre of music. "Kissing Myself" is a emotionally wrought ballad in the structure of a dissonant electronic beat, and another essential listen.
Wow I hope you liked reading this! I'm sure I'll be back in like 3 months with some more. Also I love Autechre, maybe I'll write a guide to the new music? LMK if you'd like that. PM if you like the music! Thank you!
- Tourist Kid's Crude Tracer (May 18, Melody As Truth)
- Released on Jonny Nash and Suzanne Kraft's excellent label, this is an album from an American artist who makes dreamy, longform pieces in the style of Oneohtrix Point Never's shapeshifting drone music. The music here is blissfully rapturous ("Discourse II", "Petrol")
- Jenny Hval's The Long Sleep EP (May 25, Sacred Bones)
- This is a fucking amazing concept EP by - who else? Jenny Hval - about sleep, but also so much more. It carries her trademark intimate vocal delivery, and trades her previous album's harsher feelings for the warm fingerprint of a live jazz ensemble. The opening track "Spells" is a contender for song of the year - the EP's closing track is a remarkable poem that sends shivers down my spine.
- Baba Stiltz's Showtime EP (June 8, XL)
- Everyone hates this, and I think it's fucking tight. Baba Stiltz is quickly getting a reputation as a sort of Ariel Pink figure in the club music world. On his debut EP for XL Recordings, he's consistently funny as hell, and flips samples better than Kanye, I'll say it. Even more, he has sort of a weird ear for bangers - the final two tracks go unusually hard after repeated listens. ("I'm a DJ... " he sings on track 1, before adding, "with a good soul." "Treat you good girl." "Try to make it work.")
- Kwes.'s Songs For Midi EP (April 6, Warp)
- Rich, evocative MIDI music that takes the nostalgia-washed, deconstructionist work of other artists like Mount Kimbie and Aphex Twin and turns it into gaudy synth pieces that twinkle and contort before your eyes. Kwes. made this for his niece Midori.
- Leon Vynehall's Nothing Is Still (June 15, Ninja Tune)
- An insanely ambitious piece of work by emotional house music deity Leon Vynehall, about his parents' immigration to the US from the UK. Orchestral from the start, weaving in misty ambience and Philip Glass-esque keys. Then there's that Leon Vynehall sound - if you're not familiar, it's warm, indebted to funk and house music, and will make your heart hurt even when it isn't four-to-the-floor. Check out "Movements", "Trouble", and "Ice Cream".
- Elysia Crampton's Elysia Crampton EP (April 27, Break World)
- An insanely dense little EP that packs hundreds of samples into short, melodic beats. It is Crampton's attempt at fusing Andean styles of music with pop music in order to prolong the legacy of the indigenous Bolivian people she is a product of.
- Jon Hassell's (Listening To Pictures: Pentimento Volume One) (June 15, Ndeya)
- Jon Hassell is just as influential to modern experimental music as Brian Eno, his former collaborator. Hassell invented "fourth world", a crazy important musical movement, google it and read up it's super cool! And the 81-year-old is back after a long break with a new album that is startlingly modern-sounding. You can hear Hassell's familiar trumpet in here, but you also hear the erratic clicks and ambient rushes of what has to be algorithmic audio software. It's maybe the only album of its kind so far. Do check it out.
- Skee Mask's Compro (May 15, Ilian Tape)
- A lot of you might of heard this, but hey, it's a great album! Skee Mask blew up at a young age as SCNTST, but has slowly but surely perfected a sound which is surprisingly mature and insightful. This new album Compro is the full realization of that sound, a mixture of old breakbeats, modern techno beats, and ambience. The breakbeats are intelligently manipulated, the ambience is beautifully emotional without ever crossing the line, and the techno adds a sheen to the album. Just a really fucking good album.
- Chevel's Always Yours (March 30, Different Circles)
- If you like the sexy slowed-down techno pop of Andy Stott, check out this release. Chevel makes bare-bones techno that often removes the beat, or keeps the beat and removes everything else. It's expertly engineered, and just like Stott, unusually elegant and sexy. Also, the title track goes HARD.
- Barker's Debiasing EP (June 1, Ostgut Ton)
- This EP is a new release on Ostgut Ton, the in-house label run by the people from the infamous Berghain club in Germany. You'll be surprised, then, to hear that this release is techno of the very non-Berghain sort - warm, melodically rich, imaginative, and ALMOST COMPLETELY WITHOUT PERCUSSION. It's fantastic.
- Sonae's I Started Wearing Black (April 13, Monika Enterprise)
- Not the most glamorous release on this list, but still an amazingly nuanced one. Sonae explores the phenomenon of "hauntology", as popularized by the philosopher Jacques Derrida - check out this awesome video - and inhabits it to express a feeling of existential fear about modern times. Expect hulking ambience, punctuated by smooth, thudding, writhing techno beats.
- Proc Fiskal's Insula (June 8, Hyperdub)
- A must listen for fans of Hudson Mohawke, Rustie, and all cute electronic music (Giraffage, Tennyson, etc.) Proc Fiskal makes instrumental grime beats - his beats have gained a reputation for being artsier and more thoughtful than other artists' more functional beats. Well, on his debut album he goes ALL IN on the artsiness, sampling old recordings of his friends and personal memories to make a personal diary set to the tune of hyperactive digital grime music.
- Matt Karmil's Will (April 27, Smalltown Supersound)
- Matt Karmil is a house producer by trade, but he takes things down a notch for this album, crafting a beautiful continous mix of rhythmic ambience. There are smooth static atmospheres and looped melodies all over this record, and when percussion does emerge, it's a patiently anticipated and well-earned surprise.
- Will DiMaggio's At Ease (May 11, Future Times)
- Will DiMaggio's debut album for Future Times, one of DC's best dance labels, is an ebullient take on the misty, jazzy house music that has spread across North America like wildfire in the last few years. It's just a really good record. Check out "Steppin W Friends" and "All Good".
- Patina Echoes (May 25, Timedance)
- Timedance is a London label run by Batu, one of the key figures in the UK's current oddball techno scene, and this is a fantastic collection of the label's various modernizations of the techno sound. Check out Bruce's delirious psychedelic sounds, or Neinzer's delicate crescendo of a track, or the dreamy washing-machine sound of Rae's "Sleep Rotation". It's all good.
- O$VMV$M's O$VMV$M (June 1, The Trilogy Tapes)
- The Trilogy Tapes is a label devoted to dance music run through a dusty, grimy filter. Think Ariel Pink's sound quality, but King Krule's emotional palette. This release is a 20-minute, 12-track collection of vignettes, an unpredictable and often emotional series of recordings that is pleasantly diverse and imaginative for such a dark kind of aesthetic.
- Flowers From The Ashes: Contemporary Italian Electronic Music (April 13, Stroboscopic Artefacts)
- A compilation of music from techno producer Lucy's label, which features HEAVY HITTERS of the game like Caterina Barbieri, Neel, Chevel, and Ninos Du Brasil. If you know these names, you'll probably want to listen. If you don't, suffice it to say that this is what its title chalks it up to be: a fantastic who's-who of contemporary Italian electronic producers.
- Paul de Jong's You Fucken Sucker (April 6, Temporary Residence)
- Paul de Jong takes The Avalanches' plunderphonics approach to music and brings it to a decidedly more experimental place. You Fucken Sucker is unpredictable from start to finish. The last track is not many people's favorite, but it sure is worth one (1) listen. If you choose to try the full LP, you have been warned. But also, you're probably making a good decision. For all its brazen experiments, this record is often arrestingly beautiful.
- Michal Turtle's Return To Jeka (April 28, Music From Memory)
- Music From Memory is one of the best ambient/new age labels out there, and they've released another archival from '80s European dub-pop artist Michal Turtle. These is some trippy-ass music. Just beautiful, too. Highly recommend.
- Thiago Nassif's Três (April 13, Foom)
- Thiago Nassif is a Brazilian artist who works with a band most of the time, recording songs that are heavily indebted to the mid-century Brazilian pop music we all love. Why I'm recommending this is its off-kilter way of re-interpreting these influences, from discordant St. Vincent-esque rock to the final track, which is the only Brazilian song with a trap beat that I have ever heard.

2018.06.22 10:53 itscrimsonbaby Reddit's Drag Race: Season 1 REMASTERED Meet the Queens!
The first episode of Reddit's Drag Race: Season 1 Remastered is finally here. While there were MTQs in the comments below, let's have a better look at out queens, shall we?
Our first queen is new to the RDR scene. With a hometown flair like no other and rudemption storyline just waiting to happen, please welcome—
QUEEN #1: Anita Dragname! . . .
ORIGINALLY: 14th Place
. . .
For her promo lewk, Anita is a mad witch in the 1800s who was caught for her witchcraft-y ways, with the villagers drowning her in a well and forgetting about her. Hundreds of years later, she was found, still alive. She is wearing a black corset with emerald jewels bedazzled on it and a long skirt with an extremely long train made entirely out of seaweed. Her body and face is a mix of pale green and lime green with blue shadows to accentuate the veins. Her eyebrows are glitter green and my eyeshadow is a strong emerald and limegreen mix, both on the eyelid and under the eyes. She has white under the eyelids to make my eyes pop and green contacts to match, with the contours done done with the same emerald on my eyes and the lips a mix of dark purple as a base, black for the corners and a light turquoise and white as highlights in the middle. The hair matches the seaweed skirt as she have on a mix of dark green and light green ombre in curls. As she is crawling out the well, (aka posing for my solo promo look), water begins to leak out of her mouth as poses on the spot for the video.
. . .
Hi, I’m Anita Dragname, I’m 25 years old and I come from the beautiful island of Singapore, not in China. And yes, Trump, Kim and I certainly had some fun together. I named myself Anita Dragname cause: 1, I had a good friend called Anita and she gave me 10 bucks for me to name myself after her, and 2, I’m too busy sucking dick to think of an actual drag name. I would describe my drag as sex meets camp.
I decided to return cause I went home first and I didn’t even know why? That was some riggory right there and I’m here to prove that this bitch can turn the party. I’m in musical theatre by trade so I got the whole triple threat and sewing thing going down. Being raised by 2 lesbian hookers definitely influenced my eclectic fashion tastes, so mixing those 2 together forms a force to be reckoned with.
I was inspired to do drag when I did a performance of Cell Block Tango in drag for the first time and I fell in love with the art. From there, I was blessed to be given more female roles. As I help to make costume adjustments for the cast, I thought, why not combine everything that I love about Theatre and put it into drag! Thus, the she-devil was born. I’m known for doing more intellectual performances, tugging at the heart strings and teasing the mind with my lipsyncs. But that doesn’t mean I can’t tear up the dance floor with Top 40s hits! The splits, high kicks and shablams would definitely be there when I’m not making people feel things.
Season 1 Remastered is going to be… crazy! Y’all better watch out cause I’m gonna Shangela it up in this house!
Our second queen is well-known in the RDR community. The original Miss Bitch, now host of Big Sissy, is back, back, back, baby. Please welcome—
QUEEN #2: Angelique! . . .
For her promo look, Angelique is returning from below Pompeii. She is covered from head to toe in gray as she is covered in soot. She is wearing a flowy blue dress that is that is brought in at the waist by a belt. Her dress easily billows in the wind and flows easily down to her feet. She wears a white shawl around her shoulders. Her face is gray with a darker gray contour and black eyeshadow with a slightly darker brown lip. She has a dark crack doing down her right cheek from head to chin. These cracks go down her arms and legs. She is wearing brown sandals as shoes to fit her Roman woman illusion.
. . .
Do I even need to introduce myself? These girls know me... JK, Miss Thing! I'm Angelique, I'm 24 and I'm from Kansas City. My best asset are my obnoxiously large pads and nails. Good for knocking bitches out.
I would describe my drag is Big Booty Bitch. Simple, I know, but it puts the B in Beautiful. Speaking of bitch, I was last year's Miss Bitch, thanks for the votes, and I plan on keeping that title. A wise queen once said, "A bitch is being in total control of herself", so eat it, cunts.
I started drag last year after Trump's election in order to blend with the straight white women and be safe from the trumpster fire. I'm political fish. I look forward to winning some challenges and showing these hoes that I'm fierce as fuck. And yes, Caprice, I did take acting challenges, perhaps you should take some shade lessons, get some new material. Fuckin' whore.
A message? For the other bitches? Quit drag.
Our next queen is coming for the comeback to end all comebacks. Please welcome—
QUEEN #3: Marianna! . . .
ORIGINALLY: 11th Place
. . .
Marianna wears a grey body-hugging strapless satin dress that hits the floor. There's a black embroidery, that, upon closer inspection, depicts spider web, spiders, and roses. The bottom of the dress is covered in grime and is somewhat tattered. She also wears a black lace shawl on her shoulders, with pattern also depicting spiderweb, spiders and roses. Marianna's hair is jet black and incredibly messy, almost like an aura behind her head. Her whole face is pale and her features are purposefully darkened, with added wrinkles. Her facial expression is full of grief and regret, she looks like she's half-crying and half-screaming. Her pose makes her look crestfallen and downtrodden.
. . .
Приве́т! I'm Marianna, I'm totally-21-yup-yup, and I'm a Russian! I'd say that my drag is gothic, sexy and femme-fatale. I'm so inspired by badass heroines and villainesses who are just like "Fuck the patriarchy!", y'know? I mean, my look today is the modern version of The Lady of the House of Love. I've never read it, but.. she sounds fierce.
My best asset are these LEGS, girl. Look at these luscious, long goddesses. Such beauty. . .. Just don't tell Naomi, I can't hold a candle to her! I've been doing drag and all the fellas from my local bar for a year and a half now, so I'm still a baby queen, but I've had a lot more experiences than older queens, so don't underestimate me.
I can't for Snatch Game, honestly, not because I'll win, but because I'll be so bad it'll be the most entertaining shitshow of your life! In Season 1, I think I was most notable for being part of Team Safe with Obeseia. Now, with there being more of a chance to shine, I think I'm a lock in for Top 7.
My personality hasn't really changed, to be honest, I'm still a supportive queen, love my girls Caprice and Annie. I'll continue to be supportive to my Season 2 sisters as well, there's nothing to lose and all to gain from being nice!
Although, I hope we can still be friends after I win.
Our next queen is the original lip sync assassin. More fashionable than ever, please welcome our very own dancing diva—
QUEEN #4: Annie Depressant! . . .
ORIGINALLY: 8th Place
. . .
Annie is wearing a bodysuit with full arms & a neckline that is tight on her up to her chin. Her body suit is stoned completely with black stones on the left side. The right side the body suit fuses to Annie’s skin just past her nipples. Her skin is a alabaster white with a grayish tone to it. She has a chunk of her neck missing on her stoned side which is stoned red and is jagged to represent her skin sticking everywhere from the bite. A singular line of red stones curves down her body and where it hits the end of the body suit it turns into beaded jewels that act as a singular fringe.
On the left side of her body her skin is porcelain & pure. She is wearing a red bottomed stiletto that has a singular red jewel that hangs inside of the arch of the shoe. She has on fishnet tights & a black Smokey eye. On the right side her heel is cracked off so she has to lean her foot to the side to stay level. She is wearing no fishnets on this leg so her grey dirt laden skin is exposed. Her body looks red & irritated where the bodysuit melds to her skin in a latex type material. Her hair is in a big loaf like Eureka’s & is perfectly styled on the left side w/ black stones styling it. Her right side of the load is misshapen & knotty like Eufreka’s w/ red diamonds scattered throughout.
Hello, I'm Annie Depressant, I'm 22 and I'm from Wilmington, DE! I would describe my drag as regal stoner housewife. Does that make sense? It worked in my head!
My best asset to this competition is my lipsync skills. I delivered some high-end performances with "Raise Your Glass" and "Emotions", so I know that I can give you high-energy as well as soul. I grew in a small town in Maryland that was more conservative, and after being inspired by Drag Race and the like, got the confidence to put on that wig, and begin the journey to becoming Annie! She's everything I fantasise about being.
Will I continue being congenial? Look at you! Tryna' get a sassy answer! All jokes aside, of course I'm gonna keep it up! But come for me and I will cut you. Last time I was on, I was given a free pass onto Season 2, but now there's new rules, a new game, and trust me, I have no advantage. I'm gracious that the pass still was valid, to be quite honest. I just hope I can get past 8th, and claim that win I know I deserve! I'm most looking forward to showing everyone how much I've improved, and Snatch Game! I've got a really cool character planned and I hope you enjoy!
To sign off, I would like to quote Lord Mother Disasterina, "Shut the fuck. Put your God damned pantyhose on, and fucking slay. But don't do better than me.”
Our next queen is the full fantasy, and the ORIGINAL Miss Robbed. Will she get justice? Please welcome—
QUEEN #5: Fantasia Four! . . .
ORIGINALLY: 7th Place
. . .
Fantasia Four is back, back, back again from the dead. She coughed a spout of sand from her mouth, shooting out from in between her mahusive lips which were cracked, dry skin peeling off the top of them. The trail of sand was stuck to her face, flowing down her chin, stuck to the skin by the tacky surface of spit which had leaked from her mouth over time. Embedded in this stream were small ‘diamonds’ and glistening holographic glitter, also seen on her eyelids in a different colour of a metallic gold. Her caramel, warm skin-tone accommodated the metallic shades perfectly, and the harsh contour she had painted, emphasising on her already strong facial structure, her appearing almost skeleton like. Her eyes emitted a ray of brightness; the bright amber contacts she wore shrunk her pupils and made her supernatural like, cohesive with the gradient of the golden tones of eyeshadow and glitter on her eyelid that followed her dramatic eyeliner wing and black waterline. She wore a Egyptian Pharaoh headdress that had the classic gold and blue appearance, despite maintaining a polished sheen, it was rusted and cracked, symbolic of its age. Her long, sleek brunette hair flows downwards from the headdress, intertwined with the golden beads that dangle from it. She wore a translucent kimono, printed on top were hieroglyphics with a bronze tint, cohesive with the pallazo pants she wore that seemed to be made out of a bronze silk, attached to her corset that cinched her waist to minuscule proportion. Her chest was on show, her nipples covered by white tassels opposing the rest of her padded body. The five inch copper heels that she wore made her appear taller, showing for the loose fabric of the pants which had more ability to flow.
. . .
Hey! I’m Fantasia Four, 7th place and Miss Robbed of season 1! Yay, I’m back! Here’s the thing: Season 1 was AGES ago, and the actual season wasn’t really the most incredible thing in terms of decisions. 4 of my fellow old-school friends got a chance to come back last year, and I’m snatching this opportunity for myself this year! Now, let’s move on from this to talk more about my favorite subject: me!
I’m originally from UK, but I’m now living at New York. My age? No one needs to know that! I’m a queen, you don’t ask a queen for her age! Fantasia Four originates from the concept of my own drag. I was inspired by my own fantasies in wanting success and my ambition, and that I also sometimes gives off fantasy looks that are unique and can be eclectic. Four comes from my favourite number.
3 words to describe my drag? Past, present, future. I’m all about being a drag queen for all times! 3 queens that inspire me? Miss Fame, Nina Bonina and Alaska. I believe Fantasia Four is an amazing, theoretical character that could easily be put into any season and allow the person running it to have flexibility. She has her weak points like any other queen but can redeem herself the next episode of with a great lip sync, and in contrast she has more strong points.
The originator of the first truly interactive (non-random) RDR season, we'll give this bitch a lot of credit. Current contestant of RDR4 and former judge on Season 3, please welcome—
QUEEN #6: Caprice Sun! . . .
ORIGINALLY: 6th Place
. . .
Caprice stands fierce, looking straight into the camera. Her look is a fierce take on a Celtic warlord, like Boudicca. The top of her outfit is a golden metal chestplate, protecting her body. The bodice has intricate details of engraved Celtic runes and symbols of war. The abdomen of the bodice cinches her in slightly, acting like a corset, and the breastline cups her breastplate nicely. The skirt of her outfit is a teal and green checkered dress, with a side slit exposing her right leg. The skirt falls down to her ankle, leaving her foot exposed. Her right leg is tattooed in black runes and war tattoos also, leading down to a brown ankle boot, with a high heel, covering most of her foot.
Returning to the top of the look, Caprice’s shoulders and arms remain exposed, and visible blackened veins can be seen. Caprice’s wig is a long tangled ginger wig, with leaves and dirt entwined within her fiery locks. Her face is a morbid look, with purple, dry lips and a red nose. Her eye makeup is dramatic, with a purple eyeshadow and green cut crease. From the corners of her eyes, and trickling down her face is a dark red, resembling blood. Her cheeks has the illusion of bursted capillaries, and she has bloodshot contacts in her eyes.
Caprice’s pose is dominant, and she stands, slightly left-centred, with her legs spread apart, drawing attention to her right leg. Her right arm is pointed down, following the stance of the right leg, and her left arm clutches her throat, tainted by the dark veins. Her face juxtaposes her strong stance, with a tone of remorse and regret painted on her.
. . .
I’m 23, and I’m from the UK! In real life, I am 18, but she’s still that English ho! Okay, so on the base level, it’s a classic pun name, y’know, Capri-Sun, Caprice Sun. But there’s more to it. I was in English class, and we were going over exam technique, and he pulls up an example essay question. On one side is a messy bitch laughing about prostitution, on the other is a diary from a former sex worker called Caprice. I was immediately inspired by this Caprice woman, although she doesn’t exist. Then it struck, Caprice Sun.
My drag style in three words? Conceptual, campy, fierce. nMy inspired self wants to say that I want to use this as an outlet for my creativity and poetic juices, as well as just having fun doing this silly stupid competition we all love, but also, I have something to prove. I’ve been a host and a judge, and I’ve been known to be really fucking harsh. I want to show that I’m just as good as I’ve made myself out to be, if not better, but also show I can be nice! It’s rare but I can be! This is my time to fucking go balls to the wall and own it gurl. My edge is my competitiveness, my drive. My fear of bombing anything will ensure that I work at something until it’s absolutely perfect. Although you didn’t ask, I’m gonna be real. I do have some weaknesses. I’m very bitter at losing, so expect a Korn-level bitchfit when I bomb. JK Miss Thing! Failure gives me the fire to step it up 10x as hard on the next challenge, though. And I will be here ‘till the end, cuz I ain’t gonna lose a challenge, let alone a lipsync. My stress levels are gonna be off the charts. And do you know what that all means? DRAMA. I’m gonna break down the fucking T for every bitch, I will not keep it cute, and I will tell you straight up if you’re shit. Once again, ask Korn. My inspiration in drag? Very cliche, but EVERYTHING. God, I mean, look at me, I’m a fucking candlestick! I’m very inspired by movies, TV shows, pop culture. I love finding just funny, wacky shit and making something out of it. Also, video games, eastern culture. I love those badass bitches in games, kicking ass and popping their pussies.
The only thing I’m known for is being a cunt, but that’s a performance in itself. It’s hard out here for a bitch. Y’know, I would say I’m known for being a dancing, rapping queen. I split, I vogue, I waack, I deathdrop. She’s a dancer, she’s showing the audience that was there! Owww! My art, it’s very conceptual. Oh, category is flowers? Let me be a fucking sunflower. You know a winged creature? I’m gonna be a gargoyle queen! I go fully committed to a concept, and that’s saying something. I’ve never committed to anything in my life, just ask my husband! One final message: Stan LOONA.
Our next queen is in the running for our next dancing diva. With a soul train flair, she’s about to get sickening! Please welcome—
QUEEN #7: Tish Hughes! . . .
ORIGINALLY: 5th Place
. . .
Tish is wearing a light brown form fitting mermaid gown. The gown is tattered and dirty, giving it an aged appearance. The sides of the gown are covered in wilted flowers, creating a dark contrast to the light beige and further creating the illusion of a slender, cinched waist. The bottom of the gown is layers upon of layers of decaying calla lilies, giving it a ruffle like appearance. Tish’s hair is a black layered bob, that’s been teased to all hell, with baby’s breath weaved into it. Her face and body makeup is a clown white, giving her an extremely pale and sickly appearance. Her white sclera contacts are a sharp contrast to her dark black eye makeup that gives her a sunken in look. Instead of contour, Tish put bloody stitches around her face and under her high cheekbones. As a prop, Tish holds a bouquet of red roses, presumably stolen from the grave next to hers. Tish created a storyline of a former starlet who died while in recovery of a facelift, trying to revive her career. She’s furious that her fans don’t visit her grave and leave her her flowers anymore, so she’s coming for everyone else’s. She wants you to know if you see her, she’s not after your brains, she’s after the bouquet you left on Aunt Barbara’s grave.
. . .
Hi, my beautiful boogers, my name is Tish Hughes. I’m 22 years young and I’m from Brooklyn, NY. When I was 18 and I first listened to Partition by Beyonce there was this one line that I lived for! It went like “I sneezed on the beat and the beat got sicker”.
I thought it was so fierce and then I came up with the name Tish Hughes because every bitch here is going to need one when they see how sickening I am. If I had to describe my drag style in three words it would be fluid, colorful & gobsmacking. I decided to return for S1 show that with a stable internet connection, I’m able to turn the party.
I believe that life is a banquet and we are all starving. But this for this banquet I’m pushing everyone out the way and hogging all the expensive calamari and dinner rolls. My hunger for this is my edge and I’m ready to push all these girls off of it. Hope their padding breaks their fall!
The fierce black performers I grew up admiring. I was raised by a mother who always played Jody Watley, Whitney Houston, Janet Jackson, Diana Ross, Stephanie Mills and so many more!
I get a lot of fashion inspiration watching Soul Train videos on YouTube. Those girls were there to dress their absolute best and turn it out as well, amazing! I’m a dancing diva. I can turn a lip sync like no other. Whoever I’m in the bottom with needs to bring it because there is no way I’m going out without the claws coming out.
Season 1 Remastered is going to be alluring. You’re going to need a tissue to wipe your tears after I wipe you all out.
Our next queen is a well-known worrier and spooky ooky kooky extraoirdnare! Please welcome—
QUEEN #8: Kornucopia! . . .
ORIGINALLY: 4th Place
. . .
Kornucopia is serving some sort of undead, glamazon humanoid that crawled out of a gold vat. Every single inch of her exposed skin is coated in gold glitter. This mainly includes her head (which has been completely shaved), neck, and arms. Her garment is a gold sequin mermaid dress, the same color as her skin so that the two almost blend together. The only thing that sets them apart are their textures. The dress follows the standard mermaid silhouette, with tons of black neoprene ruffles at the bottom of the dress, and a front slit that exposes her lower left leg and a black, seven inch stiletto. The sleeveless garment is held up by two thick, black elastic straps. The black elements are to give the idea that the creature before the camera used to be a glamorous lady who was out for a night on the town. The straps, along with the ruffles and heel, also prevent the look from being an overflow of gold and sparkles. All along Korn’s arms and hands are long, almost floor-length strings of gold beads that have been connected to her skin with an adhesive before applying the glitter. Molten skin, but make it high fashion. The beads are closely threaded together to give them more of a melting, dripping appearance.
As the camera gets closer, a few finishing touches of Kornucopia’s look are revealed. She lifts her head to reveal the fine details of her face. Her eyes are completely covered by black sclera contacts. She opens her mouth in a snarl, revealing two rows of sharp teeth prosthetics. The fake teeth have been completely coated in non-toxic black paint, as has Korn’s tongue. Meanwhile, the rest of her mouth is pale white, with a slight gold-yellow tint. Korn also sports sharp, sparkling golden nails.
Ding dong! The witch is back! My name is Kornucopia, because I got a lot to give. I’m 28 years old from Salem, Massachusetts! I’m campy, creepy and odd: the perfect combination to slay this competition!
My drag is inspired by the work of Laila McQueen for the goth, Kim Chi for her out of the box looks, and Melissa Befierce for her versatility. Honorable mention: Disasterina, icon. All of that mixed up together resulted in me, the Season 1’s 4th place that is ready to slay the competition again! I truly am a gift that keeps on giving!
I was raised somewhere in the middle of Wyoming, then hitchhiked my way to Salem, Massachusetts. Living here was my destiny. Some of the people who lived here long ago were supposedly witches, and I have taken a lot of inspiration from the history of Salem. I believe I deserve to be the next drag superstar because I am something different.
Yes, we’ve had Sharon and Sasha, who gave crazy and unique looks, but I feel what departments they were lacking in, I have that. I can do comedy, socialize properly, and not rely just one thing. I’m not gonna say I should win because I’m ‘weird’ but. . .. I should win because I’m weird.
Our next queen went by the name of Proud Mary but, to quote Monique who quoted the Bible, “what is done in the dark shall eventually come to light.” And the light is blazing! Please welcome—
QUEEN #9: Alex! . . .
ORIGINALLY: 2nd Place
. . .
There is a giant dusty liquid hyperbaric chamber upright with the writing “Winter 2017: Season #1 Escape Pod” on it. Alex is shown to be stepping out with a moldy blue and green heel stuck and peeling off from her skin. The glass door is opened from the top (similar to the one from the 1979 movie Alien). Blue dyed water pours out from the bottom. Alex is completely naked with what seems to be mold and algae all over her body. Her eyes are as white as fog and are bleeding a gooey blue blood. Her skin has a slight light blue colour to it with red veins all over her body. Her hair is dyed a navy blue and buzzed into a military style haircut. Scales have formed all around her body and shine with a green tint against the lighting.
Hello! My name is Alex but you can refer to me by my drag name… GARTHOLOMEW! No, it’s Alex too.
I was referred to as Proud Mary in Season 1 but it didn’t roll off the tongue well. It didn’t keep rolling if you know what I mean. Yes, boring, I KNOW, EVITA.
I’m from the country of Canadia eh and I’m turning 22 tomorrow. Practically a sad MILF already. The origin of my name is that I like being referred to by my real name on stage and not some stupid name like Evita.
My drag style can be described with “quitter”, “over emotional” and “wow-I-can’t-believe-he-didn’t-quit-yet”. I decided to return because I love this game with all my heart. What gives me an edge is that I know how this game works. I’ve in some way been apart of every season so far. My drag is inspired by my intense road rage at the guy that attempted to run me off the road when I was leaving work. I’m also known for my high energy, tight lip sync performances on the stage.
Fill in the blank: Season 1 Remastered is going to be— Marianna’s. My final message? Hmm.
Our next two queens are NOT from RDR1, they have been instead asked to enter the competition because of special circumstances. Our next queen is technically the first winner ever of this whole series, but will she snatch the official title of Reddit's First Drag Superstar? Please welcome—
QUEEN #10: Bianca Bibancos! . . .
A NEW CHALLENGER ARRIVES!
. . .
Wearing a black and white mermaid gown, Bianca poses for the promo picture with a dress that fits her body perfectly. With a V-neckline the look is very Frankenstein inspired: the two parts of the sequins dress, divided in black and white halves are “stitched” together with big, oversized, almost comical sized over proportioned crooked stitches, that go from the bottom of her skirt to her breasts. Over her left breast, a small cut whole lets out “drops” of blood made out of fabric. Her skin is also painted half and half, but half green (on the same side where the dress is black) and half purple (on the white side of the dress). Bianca’s body is painted in perfect symmetry, dividing her body in two, with the exception of her right hand, painted in yellow, and part of her left shoulder, painted in blue. She’s multicolored, and in the division between a colour and other, there are also a line of fake stitches splitting her body parts. On her face, her makeup is simple: a black lip (with cartoonish stitches cutting across her lips from ear to ear) and a white running mascara are combined with her white sclera lenses. She’s also wearing a large, hairsprayed-up-for-the-gods black and white wig split in half life two big horns.
. . .
Hola! My drag name is Bianca Bibancos! Bianca is 24 years old from Brasil, and she's the intersection between Honey Boo Boo and Billy the Puppet!
Bianca is a dark-minded, horror fan camp comedy queen ready to win all the challenges and send the other Kandy Ho's packin! I love to tell stories with my characters and- Oh, sorry, only three words! Fuck it, Bianca also likes to break the rules.
I started drag after being inspired by legendary alumni like Max, Milk, Acid Betty (hopefully I get further than those queens). I watched the show and thought, "Y'know, I would do this and this if I was there", and so, Bianca was born, and she has trained to get that crown!
I look forward to WINNI- cough. Oh god, what was that? I have to no clu—SEND THEM BITCHES HOME— cough— I am so sorry, I have no idea what came over me, I needs to settle down. Keeping it real: I look forward to hearing from fans, having fun and letting my creativity go full force!
I hope everyone enjoys watching this international fish be crowned! It's Bibancos time! And remember, come TO Brasil, but don't come FOR Brasil.
Our final contestant of the day was an early out from RDR4, but because of divine intervention herself, she has been given new life on RDR1 Remastered. Please welcome—
QUEEN #11: Ruby Jubilee! . . .
A NEW CHALLENGER ARRIVES
. . .
Ruby’s skin is painted snow white, contoured with dark shadows to give definition in her face, arms and legs. She is further detailed with intricate blue veins, etched on her skin all around. Her hair is a big 80’s tease and crimp, coloured black with two white streaks on either side of her head, in a half-up ponytail, the rest of her hair flowing down to the small of her back. Her face is snatched using high contours and dark features. Wearing blackout contacts, her eyes are completely smoked, complimented with her signature red glittery lip. Cascading from her bottom lip, is dark red blood FX, dripping all the way down her neck. Her nails are long stiletto points, coloured in a pattern of red and black, and every finger is covered in a ring of different size and shape of animal skulls. Around her neck, she wears a black leather choker, on which hangs an inverted pentagram. Attached to the choker, is a Dracula-esque collar, rising high around her neck. Supporting her enlarged breastplate, is a leather corset, adorned with red crystals (replicas to those of her final runway from S4), that cinches her waist to unordinary levels. Wearing matching leather cuffs on her forearms, a leather cape that is attached on the cuffs and the high cut of the corset bellows as a train behind her, adorned with silver engravings of bats and cobwebs. Her lower half is a black leather hoop skirt, further adorned in red crystals, and lined in crimson red crinoline, however it split in the front, revealing her long, statuesque legs. To finish the look, she wears the same red pumps from her original promo, but now, the heel of the shoe is a sparkling silver cobweb.
I am Ruby Jubilee, the drag firework! I am 21 years old and I hail all the way from hot-as-fuck Australia! And yes, my down under is just as big as Eureka’s ego! No shade, just loving tea! Ruby is my grandmother’s birthstone, and my grandmother is easily the most glamorous woman I know, besides from myself, of course). Jubilee is in honour of the X-Men character, that bitch was a walking firework show! That’s also why I’m known as the drag firework, when I’m on stage, I am the only shimmering spectacle, and ALL eyes are on me and my tucked labia.
My drag style in 3 words? I’m not good at math, so we’re gonna use 5 words. Curvy, because I’m not tryna be some twig bitch. I am ridiculous, barely taking life seriously, except this competition, I'm reading to put on a bitchy power-suit and enter a financial debate. I am most definitely theatrical, I’m a centre-stage whore; I like spotlights and being the most dramatic queen in the club. I’m also fierce, I mean, have you seen my contour? But most of all, the best word to describe me is BAM! Did I lose the Q&A portion?
I auditioned for Season 4 because I was low-key obsessed with reading the earlier seasons, and I said, if these pretend queens can do it, then I can shit all over their parade. Just kidding, I just want to show people that I still got it. I’m a fresh queen who pays homage to theatrical traditions, and I’m excited to show people the siamese, conjoined twins of old and new drag. I’ve got an edge on the other queens because I’ve spent all my life dodging dingoes and boxing kangaroos. Ok but for real I think what makes me stand out is that I’m not a “category” queen. I can be campy, I can be fishy, I can be a diva, I can have the sad storyline that producers are pushing from Day 1. If you give me a challenge, I’m gonna win.
Thank you. My drag is inspired by MELODRAMA. My theatre background sorta instilled in me that even the most extra things are boring, turn that shit up to 1001%, nothing less. Whether that be a performance of 10 death drops and 24 splits, or an outfit that is literally cutting my body— still have cuts on knees from the last time, I promise I’m not hoe— I have to be extra. Like Bianca Del Rio Season 7 finale extra. It’s a problem, but I love it. I am known for KILLER lip-syncs, where I mix stupid, often inappropriate humour, with a diva track that results in spins, kicks, twirls and hurls . Yes, vomiting. I also sing live, thanks to the theatre background. Yes, I am THAT queen. Now toss your tips, Reddit! And a final message for my competitors: You’re doing amazing, sweetie!
Except for Serena.
Well, there we have it folks. Our eleven queens of the season! Stay tuned every week to see who goes home, who wins, and who will eventually snatch the crown of Reddit's First Drag Superstar!

2017.04.29 08:12 gbcs41 (F/25) thinking about taking a break with boyfriend (M23)....
Me (F/25) and my boyfriend (M/23) have been dating for 1 year and 4 months. Long distance for almost 3 months. He is from the US and I'm from Brasil. We actually met on Tinder (matched June 2015, went for lunch in July and started dating December 2017). So we talked for a long time before anything happened.
I struggled in the first 4 months, bc he was liking pictures from 2 or 3 girls on IG, twitter, etc. I have no problem with liking pics, but these were mirror selfies with shorts that show their butt, or selfies in bed, in the car, aka pointless stuff from girls he knew. No offense, I have several friends that do that. And would understand if he was single, flirting and trying to get some. But now that he had a girlfriend why… I talked to him about how it made me feel. First, instead of saying why he preferred me, he defended them :/ he said, it’s not bc they post those pictures that they’re not smart, nice, generous, etc. And I completely agree!! But I didn’t think that was a need to like the pics because of that? And my point was that it still takes a certain personality to post that, to wanna show that on social media. Like i’ll send him sexy pictures but don’t feel the need post it for everyone to see. If he likes it, it’s enough likes for me… What worried me was that he didn't necessarily see my personality as the type of girl he appreciated most or preferred... (I am pretty chill, was an athlete in college, rarely wear makeup, love soccer, still girly, just not that type)
Also, in the beginning, he was still going for dinner at his work break with another girl he matched on Tinder before me. He said they were friends. I noticed he hardly initiated anything with her but he was leading her on and I didn't see the point? I said if their friendship was super special somehow after being matched on tinder then ok.... and he said no, I was right, it was not right for him to be leading her on... Okaaaay... Wish he could've noticed that on his own.... But ok
Third, he works until 11pm and we lived 15/20 mins away, he had a car I didn't. Sometimes he'd text "hey I'll shower and come over after work tonight, ok?!". I was excited of course. But an hr or so would go by and I still hadn't heard from him.... So I'd text and he'd reply "oh sorry I got home and my friends were at the neighbors having beer so I got distracted. I might stay here, can I text you tomorrow"... I understand but he could've called me 20mins into that and let me know in a nicer way? And I was waiting like an idiot... Not even a nice apology (just I’ll text you tomorrow…? This stuff happened like 8 times in the first 6 months.
Now that we're long distance, I've had to ask him to make an effort about Skyping too… We usually only Skype when I stay up late like 1or 2 or 3am... I counted and out of 74 days that I have been away, we’ve Skyped 21 days. Only 3 of those days were bc he woke up to Skype me. He starts working at 2:30pm... Like it shouldn't be that much effort to get up before 2pm sometimes? :/ If it wasn’t for me staying up then we’d probably talk even less…
There are some tiny actions from him that bother me too… Once I lost my passport 2 weeks before coming back home so I was kinda worried, the embassy was a 5 hrs drive away. I was looking for it for over an hour. But the entire time he was just laying in bed on his phone and didn't help me… Little silly stuff like that that if you care about the person you’d do I guess? We we at a bar once, me and my friend pointed at a guy with funny hair at a bar and my bf thought we pointed a girl (with a big butt and short gym shorts) and he said "Daaaamn" as I standing right next to him.... Didn't feel nice. This was in the first month though...
These things make me feel like he doesn't "want" me that bad. He's comfortable and yeah, he loves me but I don't feel like he's passionate, crazy about me. And come on we're in our 20s we gotta feel this now not when 50 haha. Idk what to do... Maybe I'm just not THAT girl that makes him anxious to see her etc... He is loyal and pretty honest so I'm scared of never finding someone like that again. But i feel like something is missing., I shouldn't have to ask for these things? For him to not cancel plans with me or to wanna Skype twice a week? And whenever I'm upset about things, he never does anything. It's like I'm always making an effort to accept things or to explain how I feel and it feels like I’m asking for him to care… Not a nice feeling.
Thanks for any opinions/advices :)

2015.04.05 18:35 rosenjazz [WT!] Michiko to Hatchin - Anime goes to Brazil
Ever get bored of anime set in a Japanese high school? Hell, ever get bored of anime set in Japan? While many shows find their setting outside the Land of the Rising Sun (see: pretty much every space anime, many fantasy shows), the list of anime that take place in a realistic setting on Earth, in a different country, with non-Japanese main characters is extremely small. Therefore it is my great pleasure to introduce you to, and hopefully spark your interest in a hidden gem from 2009 born from the producers of Cowboy Bebop and Samurai Champloo that takes place in South America: Michiko to Hatchin.
: Michiko to Hatchin
: Series (22 episodes)
: 2009 Introduction
Michiko to Hatchin is set in the late 1970s - early 1980s in the fictional República de Diamandra, which for all intents and purposes is Brazil. It was produced by Studio Manglobe (Bebop, Champloo) and served as the directorial debut of Sayo Yamamoto, who has also worked as Episode Director on anime such as Ergo Proxy, Texhnolyze and Attack on Titan. Reprising his role as the studio’s musical director, Shinichiro Watanabe brings a distinctly Latin flavor to the show’s exceptional soundtrack and enlists help from Tokyo jazz sextet Soil and “Pimp” Sessions for the show’s OP. While the characters speak Japanese, all of the writing in the show is Brazilian Portuguese and episodes follow an idiosyncratic naming format with titles such as A Saudade dos Tolos (The Wistfulness of Fools) and Peixe Dourado do Brejo (Goldfish of the Marsh). Characters and Plot
One day, the suave, sexy and somewhat mentally immature convict Machiko Malandro
escapes from federal prison with one goal in mind: reunite with her old lover Hiroshi Morenos. Immediately after breaking out, Michiko swings by and saves (abducts) Hana Morenos
, a precocious young girl under foster care from an abusive church family and Hiroshi’s apparent daughter, with the rationale that she might know of his whereabouts. Thus begins a cross-country odyssey in search of the elusive Hiroshi, where the two must deal with each other’s company and the vagabond lifestyle while keeping two steps ahead of Michiko’s friend-turned-detective Atsuko Jackson
and sociopathic favela ringleader Satoshi Batista
. Along the way, the odd couple travel to Diamandra’s stunning litoral
coastline cities, the jungle boathouses of the amazonas
, the marshy pantanal
, seedy favelas
and even sandy dunes of the lençóis maranhenses
. They encounter a child trafficking ring disguised as a traveling circus, an agricultural research facility that grows supermassive tomatoes, multiple run-ins with the police and criminal underbelly of Diamandra’s cities, and many friendly people from all walks of live making the best of their living situation in the chaos of Diamandra. The Good
For those of you looking for a departure from the typical setting of modern anime and want to stay grounded in reality, Michiko to Hatchin provides a completely unique and immersive experience into Latin American culture. Despite the fact that the characters speak Japanese (or English if you watch the Funimation dub), I never once felt taken out of the engrossingly detailed recreation of South America. One possible reason for this is director Yamamoto’s choice to enlist Japanese screen actors rather than professional seiyuu to provide the voices of the main characters of the show. Yoko Maki and Suzuka Ougo bring incredible gravitas and human believability to the respective characters of Michiko and Hana without resorting to overused tropes of typical Japanese voice acting. Another character voice highlight for me was Masaki Miura as Satoshi Batista, providing the voice for a violent gangleader and product of the favela lifestyle’s cycle of violence, who reflects on his loss of humanity and diminishing chance at redemption as he spirals further downward over the course of the show. Animation is gorgeous all around with incredible color detail and background design, with special attention given to creating unique and fleshed out secondary characters very atypical for anime on this scale.
I would say this anime owes a lot of its influence to two Brazilian movies in particular from the last 20 years: 1998’s Central do Brasil
and 2002’s Cidade de Deus
. The former explores the relationship between an older woman and young boy on a similar cross-country trip to seek the boy’s father, while the latter is the visceral depiction of growing up and the inability to escape the social and legal circumstances of poverty and crime in Brazil’s favelas. In addition to these, Michiko to Hatchin takes numerous cues from ‘70s blaxploitation cinema and personal liberation messages from films like Thelma and Louise. For occupying a medium like anime normally catered to a very niche demographic with well-defined specific interests, this show is remarkably open about its international influences and willingness to break the mold in order to tell a unique story. I mean, when is the last time we had an Afro-Brazilian adult woman as the protagonist of an anime? The Not So Good / Your Mileage May Vary
If your favorite kind of anime is cute girls doing cute things or brave youths honing their abilities to defeat their enemies, this may not be the show for you. If your preferred story progression follows a serial format with interconnected episodes with the same group of characters, this may not be the show for you. If you enjoy happy endings with all story elements neatly tied up in a bow, this is definitely not the show for you. Michiko to Hatchin is more the observation of a journey and all the people involved than a definitive story, and while it does conclude, it stays true to the spirit that life is full of the unplanned and spontaneous, and everyone changes over time to different degrees. Pacing-wise, there are a few episodes that do not advance the journey in the overall scheme of the show and are essentially optional to you as a viewer. Aside from the core of Michiko, Hana, Satoshi and Atsuko, side characters often do not receive much screen time despite being interesting and complex in their own right, mainly because the main duo must move on to a different city in the next episode. That said, I actually think this adds to the overall feel of the show as a reflection of realistic life in South America and the fleeting experiences of travel. Conclusion
Michiko to Hatchin is a criminally underrated and undiscovered gem of a show that deserves to be experienced by anyone interested in a full-length series that takes place in Latin America. It breaks many of the common settings and tropes typical to most modern anime and truly stands out among its peers.
Watch this if you like: Black Lagoon or Baccano!, for mature characters with an international feel atypical of standard anime; Kino’s Journey for a show more about the journey and people met along the way rather than the ending.
Where to view: Available for streaming on Funimation’s website
or YouTube channel
. A Bluray physical edition of the show is also available. OP ED

2014.03.06 13:20 epicvips How to contain my carnal pleasures [ 20/M ]
Here is the deal.
I'm dating for 1.4 years, and i love my girlfriend(20yo), she is everything to me, sexy, beautiful, cute, and a good woman, we are good together, and we make love regularly .
but, Every time I walk around alone, I'm always seeing other girls, imagine fucking them in so many ways, staring their asses, that kind of shit. Every day on the subway I'm doing this, is like I'm on a art gallery, my appreciation of their bodies is too much, I'm feeling like a sex maniac.
I don't know what I would do if some of these girls just gave me the opportunity to sleep with them, if I could 'resist'. I love my girlfriend and I would never cheat on her, but I don't know if I would be able to keep this straight thought on a heat situation
I live on Brasil now by the way.
tl;dr: can't stop thinking about fucking other girls, even with gf

2013.05.24 07:29 joseph4th Moving to Düsseldorf and have some specific questions
I’ve been looking through the various German sub-reddits and found a few regarding moving to Germany from the U.S. Most of these posts seemed to approach the subject as more of an overview of the move, big-picture cultural differences and the like. I am interested in a few more nitty-gritty questions.
I am currently in talks with a company in Düsseldorf. They have sent me a letter of intent with their salary offer and some details about how that would be broken down from gross monthly to actual net in my pocket along with various other company benefits.
I have lived outside the U.S. three times before, once when I was around 10 in Southern Italy, a number of years in Australia and briefly in Brazil. So, once when I was too young to really appreciate at it, then in an English speaking country and finally not really long enough to get a sense of it. I've done the overview research, general cost of living and such, now I have some specific questions.
Apartment: I am told I would have to pay about 9,50 EUR per square meter. I am guessing (based on a quick internet search because I really have no idea) that a medium sized apartment in the U.S. is 900 square feet. That comes out to just under 84 square meters which then would mean about 800 EUR per month. Does that sound about right? Is that reasonable? Links to apartment finding websites in Düsseldorf would be great and I’ll be searching for them myself as soon as I post this. Another thing is that I have 4 bookshelves, actually a few more than that, but 4 that kind of go together as a wall unit. They are each 90cm long. Is it unreasonable to try and find a two bedroom with big enough bed rooms to have those 4 bookshelves along one wall and the other bedroom to have a framed, king-sized bed and multiple dressers? Living in Australia has taught me two important lessons, rooms are smaller and to make sure you can buy sheets for your bed. Australia doesn't have California king-sized bedding and I feel real sorry for the people who may buy my old California King mattress from the Goodwill-style story I donated it to. Note: current bed is normal king-sized, NOT Calf king.
How about internet service, speeds and cost? And is it a real unlimited monthly package or one of those where they shape your speed if you go over a certain amount. And while we are on that subject, just how easy or difficult is it to spoof your IP or whatever so I can continue to watch my Netflix and Hulu shows? Know any English speaking WoW raiding guilds?
What about other apartment related cost, utilities and such?
Eating out in Australia was a bit different, it went from fast food to pub food, then mostly skipped mid-level chain-type restaurants and went straight to expensive fine dining. What is it like in Germany? I’ll be honest, I’m a single guy and I either just throw together something very cheap and quick at the house or I eat out. I would have starved in Brasil if it wasn't for my French friend who spoke a little Portuguese and the Outback steakhouse that was down the street. P.S. my Australian friends thought the Outback steakhouse was HILARIOUS!
Oh, odds of finding a good Mexican restaurant? Found a few of those in Australia, but just not quite the same. My friend described it quite well, “It was Mexican food as if it was made by somebody who had only read about Mexican food in a book.”
Peanut butter and grape jelly. The Australians have a big grape / wine industry and do sell various jam and jelly-like spreads; they just didn't seem to make the connection that they can be made in grape flavor. Small detail, but I’m curious.
And, brace yourself for this one, I don’t drink. Australia was a very pub-based lifestyle culture for going out at night. I really didn't find hanging out at the loud and noisy pub all that entertaining. Besides the obvious shock and dismay you are probably experiencing right now regarding Germany and beer, what is it like in Germany regarding that sort of thing? And if I do wind up at places like that, what are the odds of me getting actual iced-tea to drink and not something like that bottled Lipton crap?
Medical: I have been told about the medical insurance that is taken out as part of my pay. But I would like to specifically know how that works when I need treatment. I am a type 1 diabetic and am going to need to see an endocrinologist and get insulin. Do I make an appointment to see a general practitioner first or go straight to finding an endocrinologist? How long can I expect the wait to be between when I make an appointment and see the doctor? Any idea how much I can expect to pay for insulin?
As an American, how in general can I expect to be treated? I speak no German. How much can I expect to find people who speak English while out and about? I had really hoped that Australian girls would find my American accent sexy, but not so much. Most of the time they thought I was Canadian, though I was told once that when not sure, most Aussies ask if your Canadian because Canadian people get upset if you ask if they are American.
Travel: If I am going to be living in Germany I think it would be a shame not to travel about Europe when on vacation and see all the exciting sights. How easy is it to drive from country to country? What happens at the border?
And finally, if you are somebody from the company that I’m talking to and you've figured out who I am, I hope you are reading this is in the mindset of, “Well, he certainly seems intelligent and resourceful to ask these questions on Reddit where people can get him the information he needs” and not leaping to your feet at some detail like, “OH MY GOD HE’S DIABETIC! WE DIDN'T KNOW THAT!!!” I’m not sure how such things are viewed in Germany compared to the U.S. where we have the Americans with Disabilities Act.
Thanks much for whatever information you can provide.

2012.12.09 03:16 Steve_Rogers Some objective advice please? things seem to be coming off the rails
Hi, I don't post much and don't know much about formatting, so I'm sorry if this is hard to read. A little back story and then a question, or more like, a plea for commentary, advice criticism, anything really
backstory I went to Brasil in July and met the most wonderful beautiful woman in the world. I got to see how she interacted with children, friends, family, and fell pretty hard for her pretty fast. I'm a dual citizen brasilian-american, I live in Dallas Texas.
When i left I told her not to wait for me, go have a great life because she deserves it. She wanted to wait.
So we skype almost every day, phone calls and e-mails. the whole long distance thing. I bought her a plane ticket for december 27th, enrolled her in an english language school starting the Jan 7th. Applied for a student visa it got denied last monday. Got an immigration lawyer. Trying to get her application re-opened for a second chance.
my mistake I think I should start off with where I screwed up. This week she called. 7 times. in a row. But I was masturbating at the time and due to my upbringing still think this is a vile act and too ashamed to answer the phone. Next day I send her an e-mail saying i went to sleep early.
Last Night we are talking on skype and I tell her i loved the sexy email she sent me, and it made me masturbate so much everything is hurting down south. Basically, admitted that I lied with the whole 'went to sleep early.' She asks "is there anything else you want to tell me?"
I say no, understand her thought process and say no, I don't look at other girls (i truly dont..well besides porn).
Then she says "Well I guess if you hooked up with someone i'd basically just have to accept it" Which I counter not at all, never accept that shit. I wont accept it from you and you don't accept it from me. if we are doing this we are all in.
one more mistake of mine She called me at work one night at 9 pm, this is the BUSY season for my job, so I was super stressed. This was during the time she was a big proponent of just waiting 3 weeks and not using the lawyer. A family friend was a long way away and sick.
I told her to go, be with them, if the lawyer thing worked out I would send money for her bus fair back to the consulate. she said no. she said "Wouldn't it be best just to forget this lawyer thing and wait 3 months?"
I was stressed and angry and raised my voice. I didn't yell or call her names, I just raised my voice and asked her why she didn't like the lawyer idea. Theres a good chance it wont work, but we might as well try. This was our first fight, and she yelled at me, telling me never to raise my voice at her EVER.
It was stupid to raise my voice, but when someone is passionate about something, its hard not to get heated. I thought if i wasn't mean and didn't say mean things like "thats a stupid idea" then I could raise my voice, shit we are going to have arguments in our life, we aren't going to see eye to eye on everything, i didn't think a raised voice was such a bad thing, but it really put her off. wasn't screaming, but did speak emphatically.
her mistake Last week she was very apprehensive about the immigration lawyer. She wanted to wait 3 months and apply for a visa on her own. I told her the lawyer thing wouldn't hurt her plans for waiting 3 months. There is a low chance the lawyer thing might work, my thoughts were "if it does great! if it doesnt then we can do your plan, wait 3 months and try again"
This week she completely did an about face: said if this lawyer thing didnt work out she can't "wait another 3 months." Which really really really hurt. I'm kinda going all in on this one. ITS NOT ABOUT THE MONEY but yes I spent multiple thousands of dollars on her airplane ticket here, her language school, all the fees and forms to apply for a visa.
A friend asked "how far would you go for this one" and i responded "I'd chop of my dick." He asked if she would chop of her metaphorical dick, to which I responded by crying and saying i didn't know.
the issue Her last job was as an english language secretary. The school went bankrupt a week ago. She is a chief and graduated from a culinary school. Got offered a job in Sao Paulo.
I told her, take the job. If the lawyer thing works out, then just skip town and come to america. If the lawyer thing doesnt work out then stay and work in sao paulo. She says no, now she's waiting for any word from our lawyers. And placing the blame on me that she has to 'put her life on hold, because of all of this.' I told her if she was in Sao Paulo and the lawyer thing worked out, I would send her money to help her with bus/airfare to go back to consulate and see if she can get a visa....
final thoughts It really hurt for her to say she can't wait three months. The way she is blaming the visa application process for 'putting her life on hold' makes me think she isn't as committed to this relationship as I am. She hasn't had any professional job, lives with her mother and has few friends. I know leaving a country and your old life is hard. I know this. This is going to sound so mean: but she isnt leaving much. If I have to work on the weekends, I'll call her at night and she will complain that she was all alone all day and none of her friends or I called her, that makes me think this is the PERFECT time for her to leave her country and start a new life.
Before her visa application was denied it was all happy times and she was dead set on coming. Now she is bringing up her apprehension of coming and other stuff I thought we had already put to rest.
questions to reddit Am I an idiot? is the writing on the wall? I really love this girl. There is no one else like her. I know we would have a BLAST living with each other, growing old, having kids, just the whole 9 yards man. I haven't felt this sad in a long time. It feels like she's slowly falling out of love with me just because we are going through a rough immigration. Am I being too hard on her or too judgmental? Any advice would be really appreciated. I'm so sad and any wise words would really help. Thanks reddit, I really like you guys/gals. Be safe.

|Questions ||Answers |
|We went to all the same schools together, you may remember me from teaching you how to sign giraffe whore ;) I always thought you would become a professional soccer player over a pro fighter. How/when did you decide to become a fighter? Do you miss soccer? What's your diet like? Do you still know the Napoleon Dynamite dance by heart? ||HAHAHA OMG!!! Yeah I played soccer for 2 years at my college, but stopped to fight professionally. For women's soccer, college is the highest level you can play at (unless you're on the national team). I kept getting lots of opportunities for fighting so decided to take advantage of them and also get paid for the training and fighting I was already doing. And yes, I miss soccer every single day. I still play indoor soccer on Sundays. My diet is strict. Gluten-free, high protein, low carb, and eat to my blood type. And no, I don't remember it by heart, I get hit in the head a lot, but i'm sure if i watched it it would come back to me! |
|That's awesome! I forgot to ask, what's your favorite part about being in the ring? ||I like the tunnel vision. It's 100% pure focus and intensity. Its so raw! |
|What types of modifications have you had to make in your kitchen to allow you to train? ||I have to keep the sweets out! And I have a BIG sweet tooth so it drives me crazy. |
|Thanks for doing this AMA! I am a competitive Brazilian Jiu Jitsu athlete myself and dedicate several days a week to boxing and MMA training. I have always wanted to step into the octagon, but my coach doesn't necessarily believe women need to fight. Although he is incredibly supportive, he feels that we have a lot more to lose than men when it comes to our physical appearance. So what I want to know is, how do you handle that? How long have you been professional? You're a pretty girl, so are you concerned about the cauliflower ear and nose and the consistent abuse? ||I do the best I can to keep my hands up and move my head. I feel that if i worry about that, then I won't fight as well and I will get injuries on my face. As far as my ears go, they're really really flexible. I'm not worried about cauliflower. If I get it, I'll drain it right away. My nose has been broken before. It's fine now, stronger than before actually haha. Black eyes, cuts and bruises heal. Ice, mederma, and band-aids are always on standby. :) |
|Do you watch MMA.? If yes, who's your favorite fighter? And a last one : Crocop of Nogueira? Kickboxing or MMA ? ;) ||Of course I do! My favorite fighters are Anderson Silva, GSP, Fedor, and Bas Rutten. Although I am partial to that famous left head kick, I have to say Nogueira! My heart is with kickboxing because it's my base, but I love the variability of MMA. |
|Who are your favorite kickboxers? ||Rob Kaman, Badr Hari, Allister Overeem, Ernesto Hoost. |
|Your a pretty good looking girl I must say, do guys ever try & hit on your when your training or at an MMA event do they remain respectful? And do you feel guys sometimes get intimidated by the fact that you could kick there ass? ||Thank you! Yes, they do all the time. The regulars at the gym know better, but every once in a while a new guy will try to chat me up. MMA events are mixed- some respectful, some not. And yes, I think some guys are intimidated, but I think secretly, deep down, every guy likes to be handled by a woman a little bit. ;) lol. |
|I agree :) I'd imagine it's a lot of the macho alpha males hitting on you, but as a professional ass kicker who trains with men who are physically in great shape, how do you feel about the nerdy guys? I'd also imagine it takes balls to ask out a girl who would absoloutly whoop your ass, do you find men who know who your are & genuinely want to ask you out get intimidated? Sorry about the 'love life' questions, I'm genuinely curious. I'll ask something different, If you could fight anyone, who would it be? ||I try to not date other fighters, but it happens. I don't like the whole macho alpha male thing. I like a man who is confident, but not all macho. Someone who is athletic, but down to earth is my preference. If I could fight anyone it would probably have to be Zoila Frausto. I think that would be an entertaining fight. |
|Do you think there is a legitimate future in women's MMA? Do you think it is appropriate to exploit the sexuality of female fighter in order to garner more attention to the fight? (example) What do you think of Ronda Rousey? What type of fighters do you look up to the most? Names? ||I think there is, it's just going to take some time. With more fights like the Rousey v Tate fight, there's definitely a chance. I think it's appropriate to a degree. We need to attract attention somehow. Lure them in with a little bit of feminine sexuality, then hook em with our fighting skills and athleticism! I think Ronda Rousey is a great fighter. So far she's put her money where her mouth is. Can't argue with that. I'd like to see her in more of a striking match to see how good she is there, but if it's not broke, don't fix it! Someone will eventually come along and beat her though. I look up to GSP and Anderson Silva. Bas Rutten has always been a big favorite of mine as well. These guys are all so well rounded and have unique styles. |
|Do you think the ufc will ever have women fighters? How important is it for you to see that happen? ||In a recently released statement, Dana White said thanks to the Rousey v Tate fight, as long as there's enough talent, he would be happy to have a women's division in the UFC. That's HUGE!!! SO important to me! I know I speak for all my fellow WMMA fighters when I say that would be a dream come true. |
|I asked the other MMA fighter who did an AMA this but I'm curious to hear your perspective: do you feel that MMA has become too homogenized as an art. It seems like path to becoming an MMA fighter is Muay Thai and BJJ. I enjoy watching the original UFC events where you had a karate black belt against a sumo wrestler. Stuff like that. Do you feel like the fact that the majority of fighters come from the same martial arts background helps the sport or hinders it? ||Good question! I too enjoy the old style UFC of art vs art, but obviously the more dominant arts are the ones that are being more widely practiced now. Like any other sport, it's evolving and to be the best you have to be good at everything. I feel that MMA is like rock, paper, scissors- something always beats something else. If everyone came from the same martial arts background, the sport wouldn't grow. I think it's good to throw in the wrestlers, judokas, and boxers to keep the muay thai and BJJ guys on their toes. |
|You are a very informed fighter! I'm going to look you up tonight and check out some of your fights. I've seen a few female fights before, and the biggest difference I've seen between male and female fighters is that there often is a gap in skill between the two fighters. IE: It often feels like the 2 fighters should be in different leagues even at the higher levels. Is that something you agree with? Have you ever fought and drastically outclassed someone or had them wipe the floor with you? Great AMA! Im sure you're also aware of /mma and /bjj ? ||Thank you! Luckily, no one has ever wiped the floor with me. But, yes I have had one or two fights that were not really that challenging. |
|Board shorts or spandex-shorts? which do you prefer to fight in? ||Spandex! I even have "Tight Tuesday" (today): A whole day dedicated to training in the wonderfulness that is spandex! :) |
|Who are you trying to pattern elements of your game after? What's it like trying to get a fight lined up right now? Do you have to yo-yo between weight classes? How has the response from your family and friends been from the beginning stages to now? ||As far as who I pattern my own game after, I just do what works for me. There are certain techniques I like that I take from fighters like GSP, Bas, and Dan Hardy. If they work for me I use them, if not, I modify them. If they don't work at all, I leave those moves to those guys. Right now I have 3 fights lined up so that's good. It's usually harder to get fights. Yes, I've fought in 3 different weight classes. My friends have always been very supportive. My family is finally warming up to the idea of me fighting professionally. It took a while, but I'm guessing they're going with "if they can't beat me, they'll join me!" :) |
|How many years have you trained in Muy Thai? How much do you train a day? What other martial arts do you do? How does it feel to get punched/ kicked in the boob/ crotch? Have you ever fought outside the ring? ||I've being training in Muay Thai for 7 years. I train between 2-4 hours 6 days per week. I also do Jiu Jitsu and did karate for 12 years. It definitely doesn't tickle to get punched/kicked in the boob/crotch! It hurts! I have been in 1 fight outside of the ring, but it was out of self defense. |
|That fight you had outside the ring, do you remember which moves you did? People who had training and fought non-trained assailants say that they see everything as slowing down. Was that the same for you? I'm going to follow your fights closely now. Thanks for answering my questions. ||I threw a 3 punch combo that I had been working on that week. For me, it happened so fast. I didn't even think. Purely instinct. I felt really bad because outside of the ring, I'm a lover. |
|In Movies such as "Warrior" an extremely good relationship is seen between fighter and trainer. Do you have this as well? How does this affect your training? ||Yes, my trainer and I do have a strong relationship, but like any relationship there are ups and downs. No matter what, we always get the work in. Sometimes he's just way harder on me than other times. Either way I have nothing but love and respect for him. |
|Nice, you train at Blackhouse Team Nogueira, does minotauro or minatauro teach classes? ||Yeah! Sometimes! When they're in town. They both go back and forth between here and Brazil all the time. But yes, they teach classes and they're awesome! |
|I started Muay Thai almost a year ago and am thinking of fighting. What went through your head the first time you stepped into a ring? Did you have a fear of getting rocked really bad? If so how'd you get past it? ||The first time I stepped into the ring, I was more worried about getting arrested because it was at a smoker where the cops had just shown up. But other than that, I thinking to just try to relax and do what I trained to do. I never had that fear of getting rocked really bad because I had never experienced it before then. If you do have it, I'd say you just have to get rocked, keep fighting, and prove to yourself that you're not made of glass and getting rocked isn't the end of the world. |
|Ronda Rousey has made no effort to disguise the fact she is selling the 'sexy fighter' product, a quick google image search shows none of the usual 'ass pointing at camera' or 'sexy fight gear' shots you get from other attractive MMA women. Do you make efforts to shy away from this or do you take her approach of 'embrace it because it sells and gets Womans MMA on the main card'? ||I think there is a fine line between "sexy" and "skanky/tacky." Personally, I won't for down the "skanky" road to promote myself or WMMA. You can be strong and sexy without pointing your ass to the camera and making a pouty face. Yeah, I wear short, tight shorts and pose, but I wear those same tight shorts while i'm training my ass off in the gym where it's not so glamorous. Sweat, blood, and tears. I think what my fighting skills don't sell, i'll leave everything else for the imagination. Keep them coming back for more! |
|What is your opinion of Megumi Fujii? If you were to fight her what would be your strategy? ||She's a legend! An excellent and very well-round fighter. My strategy would be keep it standing, test her boxing, and take out her legs so she wouldn't be able to shoot on me or throw me. |
|Are you worried about taking long term damage to brain / body? Are you worried this line of work will effect your life expectancy? I want to do a couple amateur grappling / kickboxing tournaments. ||I know it's a risk, but I love what I do so I accept that it's a possibility. However, I do my best to protect myself at all times. I've had more injuries from playing soccer my whole life than I have from fighting. I don't think it will effect my life expectancy. Best of luck in your upcoming tournaments! |
|If you don't mind me asking, what's the pay like? ||Not nearly enough to pay the bills! I still have to work another job on the side of training and fighting. |
|What do you do apart from training? ||I'm a personal trainer. |
|Do you have any crazy story's of someone messing with you in a bar not realizing what they were getting themselves into ? ||Just once. A guy walked past me and felt me up, winked at me, then continue to walk by. I grabbed his shoulder, turned him around, and threw an overhand right. That was the end of that. I felt extremely disgusted and disrespected. It set me off. I never lose my cool, but something about that guy doing that brought that out of me. |
|Also how does one train/ get used to getting punched/kicked/elbowed/etc.? ||Practice, practice, practice. Just through your normal training. It comes with the territory. |
|Do you weight lift? If you do, what kind of program are you on and what kind of numbers do you lift? Also how tall are you? And how much do you weigh naturally (before making weight)? ||Yes I do lift weights. I mainly do functional lifting and plyometrics. Medium weights high repetitions to fatigue or for explosiveness. I haven't really maxed out in a long time, but just for fun a last week I tried my max Bench press and I got 135 lbs. Which is about what I walk around at. I'm 5'5'' on a good day :) |
|How long have you been training for? ||I've been doing karate since i was 8. started learning Muay thai when i was 15, MMA for a couple years. |
|Which do you think was the hardest training (in terms of physical) of these martial arts? ||Some of the training I've done for Muay Thai has made me almost want to cry. But mentally, I jiu jitsu is the hardest for me. |
|Don't want you to recapitulate the feelings experienced, but what muay thai drill was it? ||Body conditioning...Kicking a tire but my instructor hits my shins, arms, and body with a bamboo stick between each kick. |
|Did it feel like your shins became stronger? Or did you just get used to the pain? ||Both. |
|How old are you? What is your weight class? If you were fighting a male with no boxing/MMA experience, how big would he have to be in order to beat you? ||I just turned 23. I've fought as light as 120 lbs and as heavy as 132 lbs. He would have to be pretty big. I'd say 20-30 lbs heavier. And 4+ inches taller. |
|Fellow San Diegan here. Where else have you trained besides Blackhouse? Who is your trainer? ||I've trained at SDCA (San Diego Combat Academy). I've also been to Alliance and Team Quest a couple of times. My Muay Thai training is Kru Alex Palma. BJJ- Rafael Dallihna and Adriano Camolese. MMA- Manolo Hernandez. Boxing- Glenn Saludd. It takes a village to raise a fighter! |
|I used to teach Kung Fu (much younger then) I am still in good shape and want to get back in to Martial arts. At 47 years old is Muay Thai an option for me? I dont want to spend endless hours working on forms. I want to fight. Sometimes I have to get my bell rung to see clearly. I feel like Muay Thai is the way. Your thoughts? ||Go for it! You're never too old to do something you're passionate about. And yes, I'm right there with you- It's good to get your bell rung every once in a while to see things clearly! |
|What's been your hardest fight? Also, when did you feel like you learned the most from a fight? ||My hardest fight was for the IKF World Title. My first 5 round fight against a highly decorated veteran of Muay Thai. It was a war. I lost that fight. It was also my first loss. It was a hard pill to swallow. But I feel like I grew the most as a fighter after that loss. |
|Since WMMA is still relatively small, a lot of girls can't fight 3-4 times a year. To advance your career, do you try to book as many fights as possible with whichever promotion is paying, or get built up through a larger org such as SF or Bellator? ||I take what I can get. I'm also a full time student so lately i've had to time manage to make sure I still do well in school, even if that means turning down a fight or two, but I'm graduating in May, so i'll be able to fight as much as my body will let me after that and I couldn't be more thrilled! |
|If a man approached you in a dark alley with a knife in hand, would you be confident enough to disarm him, or would you fork over your wallet/cell? ||With all of my experience in martial arts, I am confident in my ability to disarm him. However, a wallet and cell phone are easily replaced, credit cards can be cancelled, etc... It's not worth the risk of getting hurt or killed over. |
|I was under the impression that Cyborg santos, one of the top lady mma fighters before she got popped for steroids, only made like 5k a fight. How are you a professional if you don't live off your earnings? Can you live off your earnings? ||She definitely makes way more than that. Unfortunately, right now I cannot live off of my earning. However, I do get paid to do it so that makes it a job. That's why I am a professional. |
|What's your favourite martial art? I've been thinking of starting one. Any you recommend for beginners? ||I started with Karate when I was young. It's a great foundation. But I'm also very partial to Muay Thai. Jiu Jitsu is great for beginners too! |
|Why would you ever say Jujutsu is a beginner's art? You even said yourself it's mentally the most difficult. At its foundation, Jujutsu is designed to maim or kill the opponent. Not exactly a "beginner's" art, I'd say, although there's nothing wrong with starting your martial journey there. But to say it's "for beginners"? Seriously? Instead of responding to me, we're going to downvote and treat OP as a know-it-all? ||I didn't down vote it. I thought of BJJ as a good place to start for beginners because with my experience when i started BJJ, being on the ground allowed me to really take my time and focus on the technique and small details that make it effective. Not saying it's easy at all, I was just able to really pay attention to detail. |
|Womens MMA. I love watching it but the talent pool seems to be lacking at the moment. Where do you see it in 5 years? Any up-and-comers we need to be watching for? Rousey/Tate was definitely huge for y'all, regardless of how it was billed/sold. Big ups for doing what you do! ||Thanks for the support! In 5 years I feel the talent pool will be way deeper! There are so many more girls training, and doing well! The amateur fights are getting way better too. |
|My girlfriend (20) has 3+ years of kickboxing experience, including a couple amateur fights, and she wants to get into MMA. This AMA reminded me of her, what kinda tips would you give to her, as a woman with a kickboxing background? ||Learn take down defense first! Then learn submission defense/escapes and how to stand back up! |
|What are your dutch origines? From your father? Mother? Lived in Holland? ||From my father. He was conceived in Holland, but my grandparents came to the USA shortly after to pursue the American Dream. |
|What is your favorite or best strike or combination? ||My favorite is the reverse-super man punch or the Dutch rush. |
|MMA needs more Dutch Rush... ||I agree! That's where I come in! :) |
|Have you fought Felice Herrig? She's a friend of mine. Great fighter. ||I have not. But yes I agree. She's great. Maybe in the future? I've trained with Carla Esparza. I know they fought to a decision not too long ago. |
|Isn't GSP incredibly sexy? What does your training schedule look like? I condition for 30mins to an hour at noon, and then two hours of technique training at night, about 5 days a week. I still feel like this is WAY under training when reading about Bones Jones and sex legs Bendo. ||Yes he is! Lol. I train conditioning in the mornings and technique in the evenings 5-6 days per week. Once a week i'll do a 3-a-day. Yeah, those guys train forever! But sometimes it's better to train smarter, not harder. |
|I'm an 18 year old dude. 5'8 180lbs. Fairly well built, ex-football player. Could you kick my ass? ||I could probably lump you up a little bit :) |
|How do you keep in shape? What's your diet like? What's the most effective form of fighting to win? ||I do lots of cardio and strength training with weights and various forms of resistance. My diet is pretty strict. Mainly paleo style. I think the most effect form of fighting to win depends on who is better at doing what they do. For example, if i'm better at my muay thai than my opponent is at their jiu jitsu, then i'm going to win. If that makes sense? Just an example. Nothing against jiu jitsu at all! |
|My fiancé has trained in muay Thai for 3 years now. Any advice on how I should best support him and show interest? What do you look for as far as encouragement and positive reinforcement? ||Don't complain that he is at the gym too much or make him feel guilty for doing it. Go to his fights. Eat clean with him while he is cutting weight. Maybe try a class for yourself? |
|I am about to go eat some ice cream. You jelly? ||Yes! :) |
|What are your thoughts on Invicta Fighting Championships and would you rather fight for them or under the Zuffa banner? Either in Strikeforce or the UFC if wMMA ever makes the move to UFC cards. ||I think Invicta Fighting Championships are great! I am so stoked for their first event. They're doing a great thing by keeping the highest caliber wMMA fighters active since Strikeforce and bellator rarely have females on the card. I would be happy to fight in either organization. |
|Do you often spar against men, and do you beat them? ||Its rare when I spar against other women. Yes, I beat some of the guys, but for the most part I am always challenged or getting beat. But it makes me better! |
|What do you think of every single fighter on TUF Brasil wearing cheap Coby headphones at all times? ||I think they're all secretly listening to Justin Bieber! Just kidding. To each their own! Maybe they were free? |
|Ever heard of Nong Toom? They made a movie about her called "Beautiful Boxer". ||Heard of the name. I'll definitely have to check out that movie! |
|How do you protect your titties? ||The same way you would...keep my hands up! Lol! Kidding. We wear plastic inserts that are kind of like turtle shells. The same way guys wear groin protectors. We have breast protectors. |
|At what age do you think its too late to become a pro fighter. I see people whove trained since they where kids or early teens, as a guy starting in his 20s its quite demotivating. Also, do you feel that one can make a living off of mma? considering UFC is the only real promotion. ||If you have the skills and your body can take the training and competition, then i don't see why you can't become a pro fighter. Look at Hershel Walker! As far as making a living off of it, as a woman, I don't see it happening anytime soon. That's why I'm getting my Bachelor's degree! |
|Soccer and stomp kicks, what is your opinion on them, especially since a lot of(even professional) fighters consider lay and pray a good way to reach the next round? ||As a soccer player, I think i'd be awesome at those! But I would definitely hate to be on the receiving end of one, thats for damn sure. I think by banning them, a lot more fighters just had a few more years tacked onto their careers. Blows like that are definitely career ending. |
|Thanks for doing the AMA! I've been doing Muay Thai for over a year and am looking to do some amateur fighting in the next few years. What's a good tip for someone looking to get into the fight scene? ||Find a good promotion that does a lot of amateur events. That way you'll be well taken care of at the event and everything will run smoothly and you'll only have the fight to worry about. Train hard! Cardio, cardio, cardio! |
|With straight knockouts being somewhat of a rarity in wmma and girls like Megumi Fujii and Ronda Rousey being SO dominating in the sport do you think grappling is just more important and effective in wmma than it is in mens mma? ||Not at all. WMMA is just the same as MMA. Women do have knockout power. There's no doubt about that. It just seems like more female wrestlers, grapplers, judokas are the more popular. |
|You watch the ultimate fighter? someone from my hometown named justin lawrence is top pick. he used to drink at parties i would be at. what are your thoughts on this season? ||I'm usually still at the gym when the show is on so I have yet to watch it! |
|Can you beat up your boyfriend? ||Lol. I don't have one. |
|Were your rooting for rousley or tate ? ||I trained with Miesha for a little bit before that fight and we became friends, so I was rooting for her. Nothing against Rousey though! |
|Do you compete in grappling tournaments? ||Yes. I did my first BJJ tournament a few weeks ago. Abu Dhabi trials. |
|I saw you in that one, that was your first!? Are you doing the Subfighter tournament in a couple weeks? ||So you saw my nerves! And that I didn't win. LOL! I had to get my first one out of the way. Glad I did. It was a good experience. No I'm not. |
|Well I think your a bad ass fighter and I was hoping to roll with you :) ||Thank you! Always a work in progress. Come into Black House Team Nogueira sometime! I'll be there! |
|You strike using your shins correct? have you every broken your leg striking a person? or object? ||Yes, that is correct. And no, fortunately I have not. Just a toe. |
|I always wondered this about all fighters. How did you first get over the fear of being hit? ||I never really had it. I've been doing karate since I was a little kid. I remember the first time I got hit really hard I just got mad and hit the other kid back! |
|Would you rather take a liver shot from Bas Rutten, or fight Bob Sapp for 1 minute? ||Liver shot from Bas for sure! :) |
|Do you incorporate any elements of Capoeira in your style, or know of anyone who does? ||If I knew Capoeira, I definitely would. There's a few guys at my gym who do though, and yes every once in a while you can see it in their footwork or they'll throw a really fancy kick. |
|Have you ever been kicked in the vag? ||Yes. More times than i'd like to admit. |
|Any tips for skip knees? ||It's all about momentum and hips! |
|Proof or I'm taking this with a grain of salt. ||Link to www.youtube.com |
|You might want to edit this into the top post, for reference. I've been to BH both in Rio and LA, and never had the pleasure of running into you though. Best of luck with your career. ||Thank you! I train at the BH in LA sometimes too! Maybe we'll run into eachother. |
|Hello again! Yes I'm fighting again May 12th. My opponent is Heidi Otterbein from Vancouver. The only difference in training for this fight will be my game plan. I'll be practicing certain things/styles more than others. ||And yes, there will be a rematch with Lena in Croatia, for the World Title. Thanks so much for the support! :) |
|I'm a 20 year old 155 guy who's trained BJJ and kickboxing in the context of MMA about 2-3 times a week for the past year and a half, mainly as a way to stay in shape and blow off steam. I have no doubt you could whip my ass, but guess how long it would take. Boxing ring. MMA rules. ||For me to whip your ass? Lol. Umm...2-3 mins ;) |
|You're also a badass for doing this kinda thing. I totally want my daughter in a martial arts program as she gets older. ||Thank you! I've been involved in martial arts since I was 6 years old. It's definitely made me into who I am today! |
|I am currently a beginner Krav Maga student. I am curious as to what the major differences are between the two styles (Krav and Muay Thai) and which is more brutal as well as which is better if you have to fight in a defensive situation on the street. ||Krav Maga is definitely better for a street situation. It's all about effective striking to the vital areas. Get in, strike, and be done. |
|What were your friends and family's reactions when you told them that you wanted to become a full time kicker of ass. ||They always knew I fought and trained, but when I told them I was quitting soccer, the sport I was born and bred to play, to fight full time, they didn't talk to me for a month. They were very disappointed, but have since learned to support me. |
|Please please work your way up to Strikeforce and kick Ronda's ass. Please. I'll be rooting for you. ||Lol! Thank you. I'm kind of small for the 135 lb division though! |

2012.03.26 01:27 HyperionRevived [FR] First night out really approaching - applying knowledge
First night worthy of a field report here
Webster Hall NYC
Started the night off, dancing towards and opening on a couple sets. No response, rejections. Whatever, move on.
I just start dancing and having fun on my own. won 2 dance battles, had 2 hot asians chicks cheering for me but i pussied out and didnt open the set after I won one of the battles.
Started teaching an AFC friend how to dance aaxnd doing basic goofy movements like chicken dance.... 3 brazilian girls saw us and started mocking our movements so I 3-second ruled them. Grinded on each of them. Took them out to the dancefloor, did a spin with 2 of em and tried to escalate the cute one. "im sorry I can't I have a boyfriend" - hb7 from 3set "that's fine! we're just here to have fun and dance!" dance and grind "Where u guys from" (logistics tip from hahaboohoo) "Brasil" - girl "oh wow, u know what girls are famous for in brasil right?" "whats that" "they're known for looking sexy in their bikini's" wink "giggles" "you know what, I'm imagining you in a bikini right now" "giggles" "let's do coffee tomorrow. What's your number" "sorry I have a boyfrienddd"
Then I saw it really wasnt going anywhere and I ejected, I wasnt trying to fuck tonight, just looking to practice and get k-closes and #-closes
Opened up a solo black chick, HB8 dancing Dance battled her for 30 seconds grabbed her hand, spun her, and then grinded for a couple minutes Tried to spin her again and grind on the front and she pushed away applied push and pull and i backed off to dancing next to her instead of on her Kept dancing, said me- "You're beautiful, i gotta head out with my friends but lets do lunch sometime. Here, lemme get your digits." her- types em in me- "Aight its been a pleasure, have fun now" walked away, walked back me- "whats your name so I dont forget you?" her- "audrey" me- "awesome take care"
Promised myself I'd open 5 sets and get 1 number close. So I did.

"These stories aren’t aberrations. We have a culture of impunity in maternity wards.
