2022.01.21 03:19 flixnowco Now you can also pay with crypto to watch Netflix
In my country, some shows are not available on Netflix so I was searching for alternative. I found this website flixnow.co
Now, some might say that this is normal but when we look at the bigger picture, there are counless companies accepting Bitcoin as a payment option. They don't bother with taxes as well. You pay and you get what you've asked. No third party required.
The website I have mentioned is illigel as everything on it is copyrighted by Netflix. However, you dont have to worry about it.

2022.01.21 03:19 notreddington living again @ a domino's
As soon as I turned 18,
While delivering pizza for Dominos,
I became one of those dumbasses
That buy lottery tickets.
When you’re barely making minimum wage,
Wearing a monkey suit and your dad’s 1986 Timbs,
Battling the brown snow, slush, and freezing temperatures,
You tend to look for hope in the grandest of fashions.
I’d sit in the dusty lobby after a delivery,
10:30 at night, 30 minutes until the Powerball drawing,
and envision myself not in a dim-lit Dominos,
But living some cliché million dollar
Scumbag Los Angeles lifestyle.
Every Wednesday and Saturday night,
I’d convince myself I was a millionaire.
And at 11:07 every Wednesday and Saturday night,
I’d be $3 poorer and on my next delivery.

2022.01.21 03:19 Dependent-One-1874 Some thoughts on A Song of Achilles (and The Silence of the Girls)
So I read Pat Barker’s Silence of the Girls a few weeks ago and loved it. I went back to the Iliad and read all the passages on Achilles, Patroclus, and Briseis multiple times. I also read some academic discussions on Achilles’ relationships, although I am far from a professional classicist. Then, I had high hopes for A Song of Achilles because of all the vibes it’s got, and while I love the writing and romance, I couldn’t agree with all the changes the author intended to make from the original stories…I feel that some changes are unnecessary, so here are some major differences I marked:
-Patroclus is an excellent fighter, not someone who needs Achilles to protect him in battles. That is exactly why Achilles agrees to lend him his armor.
-Thetis is a loving mother not like a horrible person she appears in this book…in fact she is sad when Patroclus died because Achilles is so devastated.
-Briseis is widowed by Achilles, and she is a high born of Lyrnessus, not some unknown village maiden. She is not killed by Achilles’ son in any of the myths.
-Like it or not, in the Iliad both Achilles and Patroclus are bisexual (but IMO they still love each other the most!) Achilles even gave Patroclus a slave girl named Iphis. Also in the Iliad, it is shown that Achilles do have some feelings for Briseis. At least Achilles did say that when Agamemnon steals Briseis from him it’s like Paris stealing Helen from Menelaus. Patroclus even promised that he will make Achilles marry Briseis. So this jealousy towards women is added by the author.
There are also some plots that have nothing to do with the Iliad but just make me feel uncomfortable, for instance:
-Thetis and Peleus’ portrayals: I know that the r*pe scene is from Ovid but I don’t get the point of introducing a victim of sexual assault and then trying to make her the antagonist? She is not just mean to Patroclus but also to Achilles in the end. I was so shocked when I read her final words to her own son. There are revenge stories like that but that is not Thetis’ point in this book either. I also don’t know why Peleus is portrayed like this, in the Iliad although he never appears, it is because Priam reminds Achilles of his own father so that he decided to accept the ransom. The scene of ransoming Hector's body is also so underwhelmed compared to The Silence of the Girls.
-Deidameia is portrayed as an unlikable character, and that is understandable. However, am I the only one who feels sympathetic towards her? She has to bear a child for a man who treats her like air, just imagine this happening today. I don’t think a good gay love story has to treat women like this?
-I was also struck by Miller saying that many captured girls married themselves to the Myrmidons…I mean, the equivalent of today is something like “many Israeli women married American soldiers during the Iraq war.” Not to say that in the Bronze Age soldiers normally don't marry their slaves. It’s not impossible and there are rooms for discussions, but a mere sentence like this for me is just romanticizing the war? Perhaps I get sensitive to this because I read this after Silence of the Girls though.
-I’m also frustrated by the way Patroclus deals with Briseis after she offers herself to him. I know the purpose is to show that Patroclus does have feelings for her and that she’s a good woman, but what he did was so harmful — like refusing her and still treating her as his “second love”?
Personally, I don’t like how Achilles and Patroclus are portrayed in the book. I find their characters not very consistent. For instance, I love Achilles as a character in the Iliad and the Silence of the Girls because all his actions are based on his emotions and love. But in this book, I only see that he is a handsome, forceful fighter, but most of the time a jerk. His plan to let Agamemnon r*pes Briseis so he can have an excuse to kill him is just so out of character. I also don’t know why he loves Patroclus? Patroclus in this relationship is also…so damsel. Like at the beginning of the war, every day Patroclus is just…waiting for Achilles to come back from the battle? In The Silent of the Girls, Achilles also begins as an jerk but in the second half you see his change. In the same book, you can see that even though their relationship is not equal, Patroclus did have a say in a lot of things, which makes me like them as a pair way better.
Overall, it’s a good book. I enjoyed it, and I mark down many sentences beautifully written. It's tricky to judge retelling novels by their own intervention, so I respect the author’s decisions although I don’t like some sexist/stereotypical characterizations. To be fair, the Silence of the Girls also added many interventions too. I just hope readers who read this book without reading the Iliad won’t assume that this book represents everything about Achilles and Patroclus.

I've got the blue yeti x microphone and logitech G hub installed on my MacBook Pro 14". Unfortunately the microphone won't be recognized after 1 our 2 hours and I need to replug it into the MacBook. It is not shown in the sound input anymore and also not G Hub says I must replug it.
It also happens during talking, e.g. when I am in a call for about 2 hrs it will just stop working about 1 hour.
Any idea what that could be?

2022.01.21 03:19 Sofaris Very different characters, same energy, thoughts on "Good boys" characters
I think have a bit of a soft spot fore fore good boy type characters. Those sweet heartwarming adotable children that bring the warm fuzzy feelings.
And I noticed, atleast the ones I like, are actully very different characters. The only thing they really have in commen is that they are adorable, they have a good heart and they just have a certan vibe to them that is hard to describe. I considered that it might just be that they are adorable what they have in commen and I do have a softspot fore adorablness in general. But other adorable characters have different vibes. I actully never felt those vibes coming from a girl. I love the likes of Riko and Elely. They are in my top 10 characters in fiction but they deliver a different feel.
Its interesting to compare those good boy characters. so I am going to do it just fore fun.
Vivi is rather timid(at first atleast), more quiet and keeping to himself, although he can also get excited. He needs encouragement from the likes of Zidane and Steiner but when he gets it he is quite the bad ass. While in a more quiet manner Vivi actully delivers the feel about being very enthuastic about life. He is curioues, likes to play with other kids and loves theater. I feel like in different circumstances he could actully be more upbeat. As if his quiet self comes from his harsh live.
Yugo from Wakfu is an upbeat positive Adventurer, a good cook, likes competing in sport like ball games, claims to be a hero but uses it to encourage himself and pushing himself to do the right thing.
He can be downright manipulative when it comes to convincing his friends to help someone in need they just meet but it comes across as cute and funny.
And when shit gets real he is a firce warrior ready to fight to the death. He can also be a bit of a hot head. Although I have to say his problems with his immortality seem like first world problems compared to what Vivi went through.
So Yugo is completly different from Vivi, yet still has the same "good boy" vibe as Vivi.
Reg from Made in Abyss I found harder to describe. This might be a weird description but he feels like a little fary tale prince in sweetest way posible. He is pretty much Rikos guardian angel, trying his hardest to protect her and feeling awful when he thinks he failed at it. The way he protects her and takes care of her in general is super adorable. The very first thing when they meet is saving her live and he seems to have watched over her ever since. Riko has great qualities, she is a bad ass in her own right but looking at some of the artwork from when they live together in that Orphanage makes me wonder how Riko even managed to become 12 years old without Reg taking care of her.
Reg can also be quite perceptive, emphatic and sensetiv. I really struggle to describe him.
I think he also a bit more warrior like then Vivi but I think that also in part comes from his role as soule protector of the team. He has to be.
Ähm I know Vivi is a mage but when I say Warrior like I mean more in terms of exhibiting fighting spirit and determination. Ore meybe I just imagine this and its just natural fore characters with a more hands on aproach to combat to give of these Warrior vibes then a mage.
His interactions with other characters can be really funny and he is very expresive.
Eventhough he is very different from Vivi I have the feeling with him in particular, anybody who likes Vivi would like him aswell. But no promisses.
Than there is Takato from Digimon Tamers. He is a normal kid. He is emotionally very sensetive. he does cry from time to time but he got quit the back bone. He is actully really strong and very pro activ. I actully dont have much more to say about him.
Just sharing my thoughts about characters I put in the same pot.
Her are some Pictures of them:
another one from Yugo: https://www.pinterest.de/pin/51087777013854820/
another one from Reg: https://www.pinterest.de/pin/51087777014572411/
Whenever I talk about characters I like I want to leave Links to AMVs. That does not make a lot of sense becuse AMVs are filled to the brim with spoilers so no one is going to watch them but I am going to do it anyways. Meybe just an impuls fore myself to revisit them from time to time. You can ignore these.
