You serious?!

Quravin 1 point

I didn't catch that in the trailer, no. All that was let on was that he left unspecified secrets in the weaving of his clothes and his relationship with the girl turned tumultuous.

Unless you were asking if I'm serious about seeing it, then yes.

That sounded so plausible and interesting! Ah man I feel stupid haha. Damn, I really wanted that to be true.

With shots like this, does the subject ever hear her picture being taken and feel uncomfortable? I'm too scared to take candid shots. Unless this was staged?

The girl in this photo was my friend. I tried taking candid photos and I mostly had to ask for permission in advance. It is recommended. Unless the subjects seem too engaged in what they are doing, you can try taking a photo in a natural way.

It turned out excellently regardless.

When I went, I'd been actively talking myself out of just randomly walking into a lake or other large body of water until I drowned for about three weeks straight. All I was able to do for that day and the one or two before was flop around on the floor or couch and hug the dog while I cried and stared into space.

The particular hospital I went to was not the best, treatment-wise. They put me back on meds, the pdoc checked in once a day for about three minutes, and a nurse sat outside the window to make sure I didn't kill myself with the bed's power cord or blankets.

Figure out which hospital near you has the best program before you go. The one five miles away from where I was does group therapy, has more focus on depression, stuff to do rather than stare at the wall or watch toddlers and tiaras, and a great reputation for treatment. The one I went to sticks you in a room with nothing to do, and two visits a day from people who would rather not be working in a locked ward.

Still the most relaxed I've ever felt. Until I started to realize how much it was costing, and began freaking out about that.

Hey, I'm not saying that your post has in any way influenced my decision to go/not go to a psych hospital, but those are the exact reasons I've been avoiding going. I just want to live my life. Holy shit I just want to live and work and do things. Going to a psych hospital has always had this connotation of people who are actually, by definition "insane", nurses who are ticked off, doctors who are pissed, an environment that both treats you like a serious threat and a baby, and on top of it all the world won't wait for me to heal when I get released.

If I could check into a place that worked, that actually offered viable solutions and was staffed by people who cared about me, shoot I'd probably go every other weekend. But if I go to a place that sees me as another ticket number in the queue, kicks me out after the timer runs out then I have to deal with all the things I fell behind on in life....I'm very averse to doing that.

lazyjayn 2 points

I actually checked myself out. Because the only entertainment I had attention for was TV, and it was a religious hospital, and the only tv was god stuff or toddlers and tiaras.

Honestly. Ask around and you'll find a good hospital. Check on depression-related forums. There are a LOT of good hospitals. Also, even the not-great one wasn't that bad. It was super relaxing, because I didn't have to pretend to be okay at all anymore. Except, you know, like when my mother came to visit and tried not to cry. There are absolutely great hospitals and psych wards. And okay ones. And crap ones. And horror story ones.

And a little checking around will help figure out which is which. Alternately, if in the US, you could rent a nice hotel room and half a dozen psych nurses for about the same amount of money. :P

Ha! I am in the US, this is too true. Thank you for your response. If you hadn't commented I wouldn't have known to check out other options.

I do to an extent. I make sure to have something to eat because I love eating in theaters. I also look out for showtimes that coincide with when I get off work. It can't be too early and preferably not too late as I want to go home sooner. Movies that have been playing for longer I try to prioritize too as it it'll be gone sooner with less and less showtimes playing

For the bigger blockbusters like Black Panther or Infinity War, I keep my eye on ticket sales and make sure to get good seatings for premium showings like IMAX or Dolby. I'm a first weekend guy with these types of movies and can get really anal with them.

Quravin 1 point

Same, for some reason I can't wait, I have to go to opening night IMAX for big blockbusters like Star Wars/Marvel. How far in advance do you buy tickets for these types of movies?

Red_X_97 2 points

I always plan out what movie I'm gonna see. The only time I've ever seen a movie on a whim was when me and my girlfriend were gonna go see The Shape of Water. The movie was sold out when we got to the theater and we ended up seeing Lady Bird instead, knowing little to nothing about it. Thankfully it ended up being a great movie.

Quravin 1 point

Yeah, those are two excellent choices there. Even better that you knew nothing about Lady Bird. I didn't, and I think that was a big reason for why I liked it as much as I did.

Men At Work have really great songs, they're a lot more than just that "Down Under" band.

Soft Cell's Non Stop Erotic Cabaret has this sleazy synth pop vibe that I really love too.

Quravin 2 points

See, I never would have guessed this because, like you said, they're just "that Who Can It Be Now" band to me. I'm glad you told me to check into them further.

honestly, i've seen everything but Phantom Thread now, and i think this is the second best directed film of the year after Dunkirk.

the visual storytelling Spielberg employs is unparalleled, it's sentimental without being too corny, and the camera movement and scene blocking (as is with any Spielberg picture), is better than anything else this year. people who think this is badly directed or not impressively directed do not know what they're talking about

while other directors are being loud and obnoxious with their direction, the past decade (with the exception of BFG), Spielberg has been pumping out masterclass after masterclass in craft better than most things in their respective years, even if the movies themselves cough War Horse, Bridge of Spies cough haven't been super exciting things people can get behind. he is somehow... the most underrated director of the 21st century

Quravin 1 point

What are your thoughts on Phantom Thread? Are you looking forward to seeing it based on the story/trailers, or are you just going to see how accurate the critical response is?

And always invisibly humble. By the time you've noticed that you have a new Coke and more chips/salsa, he's already walking away like a hero into the sunset. And if you do happen to catch him in time to say 'thank you', he just nods, winks, and quickly says "De nada mi amigo".

How to save Star Wars The Last Jedi by just using what was filmed? Time to earn a Marvel No-Prize and explained why the continuity errors with Luke were not errors at all. This is not going to go the way you think. The biggest thing you have to except is that Luke Skywalker died long before the Last Jedi. He is actually a force ghost throughout the whole movie. Wait! What? Yes, in the tradition of the sixth sense Luke is a ghost in the movie. Search your feelings you know this to be true. Want proof, his robotics hand becomes one with the force at the end of the movie. It should have dropped like Obi-Wan’s light saber in a New Hope. So when did he die? He died after the night of Ben Solo attacked the Jedi Temple. The map he gave R2D2 was so that new force users would find the sacred books of the Jedi. Using his force ghost, he brought Anakin’s lightsaber to Maz Kanata attention. Knowing that the kyber crystal would call out to the force sensitive. Then their heroes journey would lead them to R2D2 and then to the First Jedi Temple. So why when Rey handed him the lightsaber did he tossed it?Because he didn’t need it. Just like Yoda, he delayed training and played with Rey. By going against her perception of what she was expecting. By being bitter hermit he had time to see her willingness to accept different viewpoints. Just like Obi-Wan. When he finally trains her she realized that he was cut off from the force. But if he was part of the force, not cut off from it. This also helps explain why she only sees herself in the cave reflection. While she was on the planet Ahch-To didn’t it seem odd that Chewbacca and R2 had limited interactions with Luke? Why was she so powerful? Since she is the only living light-side user she has to be the balance against Snoke and Kylo. This theory explains that too. Being a force ghost also explains Luke’s different appearances. Rey is expecting an older person with a fake hand. He is wearing lighter colored robes to express the good in him. Just like Yoda and Obi-Wan wear. He then changes to darker clothes when he refuses to train her. But when he goes to the planet Crait to take on the First Order he appears as a Jedi knight everyone remembers. Clean cut and younger packing all sorts of confidence that we associate with the master Jedi. As for his use of Anakin’s lightsaber instead of his green one. It showed that you can always redeem yourself in the force. At the end of the movie he had accomplished his goals of continuing the Jedi legacy and brought a New Hope back to the galaxy. At the time of me writing this I have seen the Last Jedi only once. I have talked to friends and fellow geek at the local comic book store also. So I might have missed some details.

May the force be with you always

Alright, this discussion is 11 days old, from what i read most of what could be said has been said. This is just an exercise of registering my opinion. I took the poll, i voted 6, and i responded i would not recommend the movie. Why? It's visually stunning in a Star Wars kind of way which i grew up with and i'm very fond of... and nothing else. The plot is dull and dissonant by itself, and when you look at it as part of a whole it wantonly destroys its heritage for naught.

I got to meet Conan in 2011 when he spoke at my graduation. I was leaving a bar with some friends, and we bumped into him. He was extremely nice, and witty as could be. The next day his speech was amazing, and he spent a good bit of it telling us how his school was superior to our school. It was hilarious and genius.

"Turn your burdens over to the LORD, and he will take care of you. He will never let the righteous person stumble" (Psalm 55:22).

“Cast your burden on the Lord, and He shall sustain you; He shall never permit the righteous to be moved” (Psalm 55:22).

“Is this not the fast that I have chosen: To loose the bonds of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, to let the oppressed go free, and that you break every yoke?” (Isaiah 58:6).

“Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light” (Matthew 11:28–30).

“For I, the Lord your God, will hold your right hand, saying to you, ‘Fear not, I will help you’” (Isaiah 41:13).

"No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; He will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, He will also provide an escape, so that you can stand up under it" (1 Corinthians 10:13).

Heavenly Father, Please help Quravin. Withhold not thou thy tender mercies from [Quravin], O LORD: let thy lovingkindness and thy truth continually preserve [Quravin] (Psalm 40:11-12). Amen, in Jesus Christ precious name!

Is there anything I can do for you? To help carry your burden? In this way, we will follow Christ's teachings (Galatians 6:2).

I am willing to help you to do what is right and build you up in the Lord.

Have a good day in God Almighty! :)

Hey man I see your looking for actions you can take. When I wss born again I sold my xbox and it was a fantastic decision. Maybe do the same, sell your computer, smartphone, etc..... Maybe that won't work (although libraries/friends/family have computers if you need one and there still are old flip phones)

Maybe try going camping for some time, or longer church events. Sometimes I'll spend a day in the park with just a bible and maybe recorded sermons. It can be boring but it's also refresjing, especially the more I do it!

My best advice is keep looking for answers, praying for answers and you will be answered. I also struggled with porn (10+ years), drunkeness and other sins for years. It's still a struggle, but keep running the race as Paul says!

Quravin 2 points

As far as actions, I've done...somewhat decent.

I have a smartphone but no access to data (my dad cuts it off each pay period). I've blocked WiFi to my phone and computer at home, therefore I have to pay for a coffee if I need to get online that bad. I don't have an account on the family computer. I'm doing ok with those aspects. No video games at home, and I rarely watch TV.

Thank you for your encouragement -- your excitement is palpable!

Guess I'm just responding out of my environmental bias. Tons of my friends emerging from college talk about 50-60 hour work weeks like it's nothing. Not sure what field they're in.

Also, I work at a hotel, so nearly every guest coming to town to work works 10-12 hour days, 6 days a week. Of course, that's just the nature of having a job that requires you to travel, but for the money they make they sure earn it...

I'm a daughter of an angry father and I can be painfully stubborn and really short tempered. I also start a lot of arguments and don't know how to deal with my feelings outside of shouting and I can have a really shitty attitude.

My SO is helping me through it and in the 2 years I've been with him I've matured a lot. I've learned to let unimportant things go because it's not worth shouting about. He lets me squeeze his hands when I want to shout and throw things and it's really helped with my temper.

My dad taught me a lot of unhealthy habits and I'm proud to be losing a lot of them. I'm not perfect, but I'm definitely better than I was.

Quravin 84 points

I feel so terrible for discluding daughters from this post. For some reason I was so focused on my own background as a guy with an angry dad that I forgot women will have just the same experiences! I'm glad you answered regardless.

Your SO sounds amazing and must be incredibly, incredibly patient. I see my mom's patience with my dad (who's mellowed out 500% by the grace of God) and it's unreal.

Do you have any close friends who recognize this struggle and stick with you?
