2022.01.21 13:56 skeletonpandemonium listening to Me by Elton John, and loving the stories of him and The Beatles (mostly John)
He’s got a story about when him and John were doing some cocaine in a room together and they heard a knock at the door. John tells him to go check who it is, and it’s Andy Warhol! Elton freaks out, and John seems very unamused. “Ugh. Does he have that bloody Polaroid camera with him?” He confirms that he does and John says, “don’t open the door! You’ve got coke icicles hanging out your nose, and if he comes in here, he’s going to take pictures of us doing this. Do you really want that“ Elton confirmed he didn’t really want pictures of them doing coke, so they ignored it and continued whatever they were doing, while Andy kept knocking at the door hahaha.
he’s also got a story about one time when John came to Elton’s house, John went to the bathroom and Elton‘s stepdad thought it would be funny to put his dentures in John’s glass of water. They all knew that John would think it was super funny, because he had a great sense of humor.
He’s got some stories about partying with Ringo, and hanging out with Paul as well. I don’t think he’s mentioned George (yet), but it is very fun to hear the stories.
A touching story was talking about how they collaborated on the song “Whatever Gets You Through the Night”, and John agreed to go on stage with Elton if it reached the #1 single - which it did. They went on stage together at Madison Square Garden (11/28/74), which was John‘s last live performance. I’d never heard the song before, but I think it was sweet of Elton (and his co-writer Bernie) to write the song “Empty Garden (Hey Hey Johnny)” about John- the empty garden referring to an empty MSG. When Alton got news John’s murder, he was in Australia. You’ll go ahead a funeral service in Central Park a couple of days later, and Elton was unable to attend. So they rented out a church in Australia, and held a funeral service at the same time.
Of course I knew who Elton John was before listening to the book, but I may be only know about 10 songs by him? I definitely kind of underestimated his importance in pop culture a bit. Definitely would recommend the read!

2022.01.21 13:56 PayInternational6252 Could use some advice…
So my mom can be pretty narcissistic, but here’s the thing - she also has a lot of health problems. For the past two years (the entirety of the pandemic pretty much), I’ve considered going no contact, but I have a kid and I don’t want to decline my mom her relationship with her granddaughter. So now, when I do have to interact with her, I usually grey rock or keep my mom at an arms distance and keep the conversations pretty short. I’ve tried to enforce boundaries with my mom and have tried to hold her accountable for the things she says and does, (usually leads me to nowhere). Recently, my moms health problems have escalated to where she is truly miserable at times. So now, when I do have to interact with her and I grey rock or enforce boundaries, I usually get a call from my dad the next day saying my mom is really sick again. This has happened a handful of times in the past few months where I’ve enforced boundaries, and then my moms symptoms get worse (my mom has terrible stomach problems and I’m suspicious that some of her symptoms could be psychosomatic). I don’t really know what to do here. Should I go no contact for the sake of her health?

2022.01.21 13:56 shoresandthenewworld I think I may have an interesting story, but it may not be fun for players. Opinions?
If cinder, Imperia, and The Sisters mean something to you, do not continue.
The players are going to be caught running from a giant explosion in a corrupt city. The person they work for is a lawful evil member of the city council. They are not responsible for the explosion directly. If they end up getting caught, they will be stripped of belongings and put into cells, where they wait.
The players wake in the morning as their cell doors open in unison. Light of the Seven starts playing. They are marched in chains down these whitewashed stone walls to a hallway with an iron door at the end.
The door opens and floods the dim hallway with magical, blinding light from four windows on the opposite wall. As their vision returns they see, in order: four wooden panels, a lever, and centered in front of each window, a noose.
The executioner walks up and says something about his daughter dying in the explosion, how he wants to watch them "dance" rather than snap their neck essentially.
Each player describes their character's thoughts/actions/words as the noose is being placed around their neck.
The floor drops beneath them.
Each player rolls a constitution check blind. First roll is 10, then 12, 14, 16, etc. Each time they fail they take 20% of their max hp as damage. At zero, they die. When there is only 1 player, at 1 roll left, he hears the door swing open and a guard shouts "
I describe what each player sees when they've passed. The cleric meets his god, and looks upon his wife still at home, the fighter and the barbarian see their families, etc.
Afterwards, they all wake up, choking, coughing, in a great deal of pain. After this passes, they see their employer standing over the bodies of 5 guards as the lawmaster runs in, looks at the adventurers waking up and the dead guards, then the employer. The employer says something to the effect of "These five were part of a terrorist plot that killed a member of the council." pointing at the adventurers he says "and these four were never here. Understood?"
The lawmaster nervously agrees and walks out of the room. The adventurers follow their employer out of the prison through a tunnel, and are brought to a room with a giant map of the city, and a ladder leading outside, as well as more tunnels they cannot explore right now.
The session ends as the employer thanks them for completing their task prior to the explosion, and explains what the explosion was (he did not intend it either)
Not sure if this would actually be fun to play through.

2022.01.21 13:56 nepturnus Are there any 48G fans from Africa and the Middle East?
Apologies if this is an unorthodox question to ask. Based on my experience following 48G on Twitter, Instagram, and Reddit, the community is very diverse with most fans being from (East, South, and South East) Asia with some also coming from Europe, the Americas, and Australia. This made me curious about fans from other regions, and I realised that I haven't seen any African or Middle Eastern 48G fans in all three platforms. With that said, are there any 48G fans from these regions of the world?

2022.01.21 13:56 Ok-Ad4375 Sensory issue while driving?
I haven’t started driving yet despite being in my mid 20s now. I’ve driven a few times as practice but I’ve never gotten my license.
The thing I’m worried Most with driving is headlights and traffic lights. On dark nights or rainy days where the roads are reflective from the water I can’t bare to look at the road and where we’re going. It hurts to look. The lights are way too bright and I always have to hold my hand up and block the light.
How tf can I get past this issue? I really need to learn to drive but I can’t just limit myself to driving at specific times (the sun is also too bright even with sunglasses so this really limits when I can drive)
Does anyone know of a way to get passed this sensory issue?

2022.01.21 13:56 IIIII00 Local queer + trauma informed community folks in Oxfordshire?
Hi lovely people. I am wondering if there are communities in Oxfordshire/Oxford area who do things such as checking on a person due to mental health concerns, as an alternative to... calling police, I suppose? The story is that we are a group of friends who live all over the globe unable to be physically present/able to go by to check on a friend of ours in Oxford area, who may need support. They are currently quite isolated and we just don't know anyone who could check on them. Because we haven't been able to reach our friend, and due to their (among others, police related) PTSD, we are not keen on calling police or anything like that, and obviously as part of the queer community, we truly want to find the very safest care possible. Any ideas?
