2022.01.27 20:36 Zarosian52 House of Leaves: In-depth Thoughts
I will start off by saying that I rather enjoy works that attempt to break the boundaries/established rules of its own form (i.e. Doki Doki Literature Club) so I think I was somewhat predisposed to liking this book. My thoughts here aren’t in any particular order, but I invite discussion of them and your own points!
Though I don’t believe the book is life changing, I would place it pretty high up on my list of things I’ve read (a 7.5 or 8 out of 10 for those who like numbers). I can, however, easily see where someone may absolutely despise it for perfectly valid reasons.
Prose: Though of course all written by Mr. Danielewski, there are 3 distinct writing styles in this text: The Editors, Johnny, and Zampanò, though the Editors have little to add other than corrections and minor supplementary information. To me, the Editors are just another layer to establish the “authenticity” of work and further blur the line between fiction and reality, but do not invite much discussion beyond that.
Zampanò’s writing style is, very obviously, verbose and crammed with academic language. As a former college student myself, I don’t find it to be unreadable (though many quotes of his are baffling and can be skipped) but considering it makes up the bulk of the text, I can see why someone could get quickly frustrated. I minored in film, so it was fascinating to me to see a discussion that in depth on something fictional and speaks volumes on Danielewski’s ability to bring a scene to life. The text itself pokes fun at the insane level of academic verbiage and provides some level of reprieve.
Personally, I did not care at all for Johnny’s story nor style. Though I consider it an excellent depiction of someone with latent, untreated mental illness and severe trauma, the sections are, in my opinion, often more of a chore than pleasurable to read. Though I have seen some argue that this is to parallel the house’s unwillingness to supply the reader a solid answer about anything, I found his evasiveness more distracting than captivating. Furthermore, though I understand Johnny’s one tenuous link to society is through his sexual escapades, the text’s insistence on including all the gory details at every opportunity went beyond the levels of necessary characterization to me. I began skimming any time a woman was even mentioned by the end of the book.
Form: I never found the book’s intentionally bizarre structure to ever be too confusing, but if you want something to read from cover to cover this is not the book for you. I found some instances of this quite purposeful, i.e. fewer and fewer words appearing in the middle of the page as Navidson gradually crawls through a small hole, eliciting feelings of claustrophobia; some, however, felt more random for the sake of it (even though the “original” manuscript is in tatters). I did enjoy, however, the inclusion of his mother’s letters at the back of the book and the Editor’s note early on essentially telling the reader whether they want their opinion of Johnny colored by these letters before or after the rest of the book. I think both options are equally valid, though I personally did jump to the appendices to read them immediately. These letters serve as a kind of paratext within the text itself, inviting discussion on the necessity of such things in literary evaluation.
Authorial Intent/Messages: I think perhaps the most obvious message of the piece is the warning against the reckless pursuit of knowledge, which I believe it achieves, both in the tale of the Navidsons and in Johnny’s obsession over compiling everything. I believe it also tells a beautiful love story of two very broken people finding solace in one another, however painful that may be sometimes.
My biggest criticism of the piece, however, is that I interpret Zampanò’s writing style as a jab at academic writing and the leaps of logic that such writing can take. This is certainly a real problem in academia, however, I find that Danielewski falls short of this by the fact that, despite the aforementioned verbosity and overuse of quotes, the meat of Zampanò’s writing is actually fantastic. The truly outlandish claims come from the quotes in question, but their excessive overuse from too many sources fail to win me over personally. Though many of these are diegetically shown to be fake attributions, something just doesn’t tie it all together for sufficient satire for me personally.
Others: I found most of the appendices to be pointless filler. They did not personally add anything to me other than the mom’s letters.
What other thoughts do you have? Anything you want my opinion on? Let me know! (Also, I’m aware of my own verbosity despite criticizing it lol.)

As most of you can tell another story based on u/arcangel’s HDMAGF except this time It's me who got summoned. I will be using bob in place of my real name. feel free to nitpick as first time writing a story
meant for others. I'm struggling with the gosh darn test. What is the answer to, why did Chicago had the most railroad connections? As I'm writing down the answer, I start to feel unnaturally light. I put down my pen and I notice my fingers are disappearing I start to panic. Before I can say anything, I am no longer in my classroom. I look around and notice some weird-looking birds. I crouch down low and start to say “come here pspsps” as I make clicking sounds. I see the birds open their beaks and make weird low tweets and clicks. I hear in my head “Come to Master. You must stand by Master.” I start to walk over towards the bird who my brain is telling me is my master, but a lot of my brain is giving me big red flags. As I wrench myself away The voice in my head is yelling now, so I scream “GET OUT OF MY HEAD” One of the birds threw something at me. I quickly doge and start to run at the bird who threw the rock at me screaming as now I have adrenaline coursing through my veins and oh boy, I love it. In the back of my mind, I notice that I'm getting lighter. I'm close to a yard away from the offending bird when I am suddenly back at my desk. It takes a couple of minutes to finish the test. Nothing else happens till I get home. When I get home, I go to my room and start working on my homework the worst thing ever. When I notice it, I'm getting the weird feeling of being light again. I rush and grab the wooden sword I train with and get into my standard guard stance. Feet In the standard L shape sword held in both my hands ready for anything. When I’m completely summoned, I hear a series of frantic and scared clicks and chips. I see the one who was in my head pointing to an animal the size of a baby horse. It had weird spikes on its back. The spikes I assumed were meant to prevent something from getting on its back. The beast looked reptilian but before I could see anything else it charged. I relied on my experiences with horses to run at it then juke to the side trying to intimidate it. I stuck at its back with the sword I had. The sword just bounced off the thick reptilian armor. Realizing I wouldn’t get anywhere with the blade of my sword I switched to a Mordhau grip making the sword a good Warhammer. I charged after the beast succumbing to the power of adrenaline making me stronger faster and slightly more alert. As I got closer, I screamed a feral war cry as I managed to get to the front shoulder, I brought down the sword with all my might and I felt something give underneath my terrible blow. Before I could react the beast with the rest of its might swung its head into mine. As soon as I felt the impact, I felt weightless,
and I couldn’t keep my eyes open. Well first one done on to the next. If anyone wants, please link the next one as I don’t know too and I'm too lazy to learn.

2022.01.27 20:36 Sns3r3iqwoz Full battery no power to motor
having an issue with my bbshd that's causing the charger to blink green and beep when all connected. Just wondering what that would indicate? Also charger works and charges my battery when the battery isn't connected. Lights on side of the battery light up fine. I checked the voltage on the battery out leads and it's all good, just under 58v. But as soon as I connect the battery to the motor I get no power, the lights on battery dont light up anymore and the charger starts blinking green and beeping. Any ideas what would cause this?

Hey everyone, newbie dummy question regarding the use of light meters and shooting with tripods/handheld: Does it make sense to get a light meter and also shoot handheld or do people use light meters mostly/only with a camera mounted on a tripod? Thanks for the input!

2022.01.27 20:36 Sparrowfan101 Looking for a good control deck for beginners
I'm teaching a friend to play magic with modern and he's picking it up really well (he's played other tcg's before) but most of my modern collection is creature decks like Yawgmoth, kikichord, or elves, and from what I can tell he's really more suited to playing a control deck (at multiple times he's mentioned wanting to play a slower deck, and has been drafting control decks in my cube) but I'm looking for a recommendation on a control deck i could proxy out for him to try
My current plan was to use one of Aspiringspike's bant control lists but was wondering what some other options would be?

2022.01.27 20:36 SixFigureJunkie POA for mother (Debt Collector) (NB)
My mother (56) has had a stroke. Because of this, she has been severely disabled. She still is of sound mind so she recently appointed me power of attorney.
Her credit is in the gutter and I'm going to need to somehow gather all of the bills she owes & all of the outstanding debt she owes and work on paying it off. Unsure how to go about this. Can someone please point me in the proper direction?
Another thing. A debt collector called me today after initially calling my mother. My mother told him that he was to call me. I received this call this afternoon and he asked me to send him proof of POA. I countered and asked him to email me to prove he is who he says he is as I don't feel comfortable sending a stranger who calls me up out of the blue information. He was very rude. Was I in the right?
Thanks in advance for any help you all can provide.
