2021.09.26 07:52 reflectedsymbol !Ape help! I’m meeting a journalist for a top US national paper tomorrow. What should I show him on GME?!
I’m being cautious, even to the point of not naming the paper as I want to ensure nothing gets out. I am spending a full workday with an award winning journalist from a top national news outlet tomorrow! I’ve actually spoken to him (off the record) and casually brought up GME just saying that I can’t believe there hasn’t been major coverage on this to which they replied, “Really? I feel like there’s been a lot of coverage on it…” so obviously he knows nothing about it… I am seeking help from my fellow apes and will print off material for him so what evidence do you think would raise an award winning journalists attention to dig further?
If mods require proof I can do that as I’m all about verification but I have to protect myself and him at this point. There are a lot of eyes on our sub and I only have one day with the individual and don’t want to turn him off thinking I’m some kind of fanatic as we are meeting on an entirely different subject. This is a 6 hour window to bring this up in a way that interests someone who knows nothing about this, may even be skeptical and thinks there’s already been coverage on the issue when we know it’s biased propaganda.
I’m not promising anything will come of this, I am opening this opportunity up to all apes however… do your thing you beautiful retards, you’ve always made me proud!

2021.09.26 07:52 TheToastyT0ast Sally Face Overview (didn't know what flair to put lol)
Episode one: Strange Neighbors.
Episode one was the start of it all, Sal arrived at his new home and some strange things happen, He meets Larry, an old man in the attic, and a mysterious demon. Episode one was the most normal of the other episodes because it was just a kid arriving into an apartment building and solving a murder. I like the ominous stuff about it, how its the story of a kids new life in Addison apartments, but the apartments aren't as "normal" as you think.
Computers bout to die I'll edit this in the morning.

2021.09.26 07:52 RhatBhastad Not a financial advisor here. But let's do a Shibxperiment.
Step one: Wait until 690 then buy way more like direct your weekly investments at this a bit more.
Step two: Don't do anything else but hold or stake.
Step three: Communicate with the shib threads about points where we can buy as a group and throw the fud off without overbuying.
They can't stop people from targeted buys everyone who's in it to win it is holding with them diamond 💎 👏👌 we need to revive the brotherhood we had before. If anyone's in reply with Y or N with a real reason. Don't just shit on this concept. It would just be a shib firm with a chat and everything. Just no real leaders at all, staying true to the MODUS of Shibs creator. There will be a point in the next few years that shib is truly an ocean of money. This recent activity is just a drop in the pond.

2021.09.26 07:52 Tigerphilosopher We agree that The Ninth Jedi is outstanding, I think I can explain why. [Spoilers][Long]
I'm going to write about my thoughts regarding this episode by Production I.G, The Ninth Jedi. Lots of folks are raving online that this episode deserves a series, but I want to elaborate on why this episode struck such a chord with so many people. I'm hoping to comment on things that a writing student might find useful, but note that it's my first time writing something like this, so I appreciate constructive feedback. This is the kind of writing I would make into a video essay if I had the technical know-how and time, so please read it with that intention in mind.
One disclaimer, while I'm aware that Production I.G. is known for Ghost in the Shell, I have not seen it, so I'll be comparing the aesthetic to Studio Ghibli, but I'm well aware that they have no relation to this work.
It's a good thing Star Wars doesn't tend to be contentious! Anyway...
The short story actually opens with exposition by monologue, and my expectations had dropped. This is exactly how you're not supposed write. The galaxy being in turmoil is nothing new for Star Wars... and the Jedi no longer protect the galaxy... for many generations? Hold on, that would likely place this after the sequel trilogy on a timeline. Now the narrator is saying that lightsabers are a lost technology? Just how far in Star Wars' future is this taking place? My head-canon becomes ~235 ABY, or 200 years after last released Star Wars film. Perhaps Rey's Jedi school still exists, but it only exists in secret.
We see an asteroid with kyber crystal being pulled out of space towards the planet, but lets cut away from that. We're here for the Jedi ship pulling into the Astral Temple! The music does a great job of invoking The Force Awakens while being legally distinct. A young adult introduces himself into a room full of Jedi. And of course they're all Jedi, they all have very unique character designs. In most Star Wars media, only the Jedi display individuality in their character designs; the Sith have largely remained masked and uniformed.
And Ethan, our only named Jedi, gives us a first look at Margrave Juro. He looks like he's wearing altered Darth Vader cosplay. "Maybe", I think to myself, "this guy will turn out to be evil, but that's almost too obvious. Maybe he will or maybe he won't."
The subtext of Juro's self-introduction through the hologram is practically "I don't show my face, but you can trust me." and that is a great way to make any audience with common sense not trust him. I love it! Immediately after, the Jedi ask themselves what the audience is thinking: "Is this a trap, and why did they walk into what they know might be a trap? Can anyone present verify his identity and intentions?" A few explanations are offered. Then, what I'll call the 'custodian droid' enters the room, with an appearance blending both Star Wars droids and something out of Castle in the Sky, and he explains that the Margrave is late.
It's such a trope in media, the character with a dual identity is never around when they're supposed to be. And in this case it's technically true that Juro has a duel identity...
Finally, we meet our main protagonist, Kara. She's watching machines that resemble trebuchets pull asteroids out of the planet's belt and into the ground to mine. Suspension of disbelief aside, this is straight out of Studio Ghibli. This is also, finally, 'Show, don't tell.' There's no need to ever explain what these machines do. Kara, invoking Nausicaa for me, rushes with the kyber ore back to her father, leading to the last scene of the set-up.
Kara's father, the sabersmith, finishing the last of the current batch of lightsabers. And just to prove that these are real, he ignites one, the excellent music swells. Then we get a great spin on lightsaber mechanics: he explains to Kara that he's tempered each kyber crystal so that the lightsaber blade will change length and color to reflect the character of the Jedi using it. The audience might think "This will be important later...", and then Kara immediately remarks that the one she is currently using must have no color because she doesn't have a strong connection to the Force. Ah, this information informs the present! It may not be needed later, then, but it'll be at the back of our minds.
Kara's droid companion lets off a sound that resembles a light alarm as a ship lands. Two individuals exit the ship, and there's no attempt to hid that these are villains. They look like a cross between soldiers and bounty hunters, and if they're masked, they cannot be trusted. Kara's father tells her to leave with the lightsabers like nothing is wrong, clearly lying (anybody else reminded of Life is Beautiful?) and Kara responds with the only line I dislike in the episode. It's incredibly on-the-nose, and a line complaining about her father being too dramatic would have been just fine.
The Jedi hunters burst in, and sabersmith Lah Zhima is upfront about his identity and refuses to cooperate. The hunters even claim the Margrave is the one who hired them! When Kara is seen in the window behind this confrontation, the next scene happens quickly and it isn't entirely clear.
The hunters appear to fire above Lah Zhima's at Kara on her speederbike through the opposite window, and he jumps up to catch the plasma bolt with the Force and redirect it into his forge, causing it to explode and preventing the future creation of lightsabers. All three of them survive this, but Lah Zhima is incapacitated and captured, and now Kara knows something is seriously wrong. For a frightful moment I'm worried her father might have the same fate as Uncle Owen and Aunt Beru, but it never happens! As one hunter mounts the father's speederbike, we prepare for a chase scene straight out of the forest moon of Endor!
But first, we cut back to the Temple. A Jedi, smartly, asks for proof that the Margrave actually constructed lightsabers. They are fascinated to receive one from the custodian droid, which Ethan asks for and lights. He reinforces how lightsabers were lost from the galaxy by the time he was born.
The animation is crisp as hell, as Kara drives backwards so she can deflect blaster bolts with her colorless lightsaber, and the hunter is forced to remark that she's strong with the force/force sensitive. A great callback. In case the audience didn't know already, this does help spell it out while being a great callback to episode four's trench run. Kara, meanwhile, comes across more and more as confident without being headstrong. Once the chase leaves the forest she -in an excellent scene- jumps off her bike to destroy the hunter's bike with her lightsaber and incapacitate him without outright killing him.
Finally, after a high-adrenaline scene, we get a breather. Kara makes it to a shuttle that can take her to the Astral Temple! There are only droids here, and one appears to be drinking oil from a teacup as it explains it's on its break. I love this, droids are already plenty sentient in Star Wars, this feels right at home. And the droids design looks straight out of Studio Ghibli. This droid, in just a few lines, already has character.
We cut again to the Jedi, who, even after receiving proof of functioning lightsabers, are getting impatient. It's a bit odd for a grown Jedi to be impatient, but far from unheard of. Cut back to Kara: she's in the shuttle traveling to the Temple, and she can see the hunter's ship leave the planet, her father captive on board.
The scene starts out with relief. Not only has Kara brought the lightsabers, she confirms to everyone for the first time that she's known the Margrave since she was a baby. Does this mean the Margrave CAN be trusted? Kara eagerly hands the lightsabers out to her newfound allies, asking for their help rescuing her father. But they refuse to let the Margraves absence go, and now that they are armed, they decide to force the issue. Allies turn into enemies as they surround Kara and Ethan and ignite red lightsabers!
Subverting expectations has become a meme for cheap storytelling, but this scene is how you do it properly. It's not cheap if it makes sense in context and in hindsight, with foreshadowing.
Then the Margrave enters the game, emerging from the custodian droid and declaring he was watching them the entire time! Still, I almost didn't want to believe he was an ally after acting so deceptive, clad in a suit with prominent glowing red eyes. Allies just don't look like that. The 'Jedi' proudly confirm that they are Sith Acolytes and attack Juro, who disarms and kills the first Acolyte with his own lightsaber! The lightsaber turns from red to green in his hand, and reveals a potential enemy to be an ally! This worked so well for me because I was so caught up in the allegiance of Margrave Juro that I took for granted that there was space for any other big reveal. Juro's green lightsaber with a glowing guard also (for me) invokes this early concept art for A New Hope.
One-by-one, Juro cuts down the Sith Acolytes and reveals himself to be a competent duelist, Kara holds her own, and Ethan struggles in the background. Since only Juro and Kara have actually had access to lightsabers this entire time, it makes sense that they best know how to use them. Juro clearly fights with anger at the betrayal, but since Juro is a kid, she refuses to kill anyone. Juro, meanwhile, is responsible for the death of every single acolyte, apart from Homen, who repents after his lightsaber turns purple. He then joins Kara, Juro, and Ethan to rescue Kara's father and restore the Jedi order, as they are elsewhere in the galaxy.
The pacing is great. We start out with slow introductions, a bit of suspense as we think these 'Jedi' might be putting themselves in danger. More exposition with Kara and her father introducing the audience to the rules of these new lightsabers very clearly, as they're both told and shown to the audience. Then a quick high-energy scene when the hunters enter the story, then a calmer scene as the imposters at the temple ask for proof. Then high-energy, the forest chase scene. Then a calm scene negotiating with the droid. Alternating action and calm like this is excellent, making the rules of the world clear up front is plain great story-telling!
It's not without mistakes. Kara does appear to clip through a tree during the chase, and she hands out five lightsabers to six acolytes, accounting for Ethan already holding one. The father doesn't react when he hears that the Margrave apparently betrayed him, even if it's a lie.
But who cares when the rest of the episode is this damn good? This is why this short story deserves a series. It's very clear the writer and director, Kenji Kamiyana, loves and understands Star Wars, and is not afraid to tread outside of existing lore in a way that is still faithful. This, I think, is why fans love this short.
Let me know what you think!
