Popheads Top 5 Bubbling Under Chart July 20, 2020

We’ve had a lot of charts where the entire top 50 is just full of albums by the main pop girls for popheads and blocks a lot of singles from lesser known artists. So, this section puts a spotlight on songs that are just under the top 50. However, this is not gonna be “chart” focused and instead is gonna try to encourage other people to listen to other songs and list some information so people can find some songs they like. The bubbling under is calculated by taking the highest songs underneath the top 50 that haven’t charted on the top 50 before.
Artist Song Genre
Sufjan Stevens My Rajneesh Soft Indie
Ashnikko Daisy >>>> Peach
Juice WRLD Wishing Well Why is this produced by Dr Luke
100 gecs 745 sticky (Injury Reserve Remix) Glitch Hop
CHUNG HA PLAY (feat. CHANGMO) Kpop
Here's the current list of people signed up for the charts! If you'd like to sign up, you can sign up here!
The tracking dates for the next weekly chart is July 16, 11:00 PM GMT - July 23, 10:59 AM GMT and results come out the next Monday, July 27. As for the monthly album chart, the next tracking dates are July 1 12:00 AM GMT – July 31 11:59 PM GMT, and results come out on August 3.

How The Chart Works:

These charts are created based on how frequently each song appears in the top 10 songs/albums for all of the users signed up for the chart. If the song or album occupies that user's #1 spot in their individual chart, it receives 15 points, then 14 points for #2, so on and so forth until 6 points for #10. If there is a tie, which is a common occurrence, then the number of points is averaged across those positions, e.g. if two songs are tied for #1, both will receive 14.5 points. Oftentimes there will be multiple songs tied for the last place, in which case the number of points each song receives decreases until it bottoms out at 1 point each.

2020.06.12 14:59 JerichoRomulus How I Would Write Superman

So I’ve gotten around to reading Superman. Once upon a time, I thought he was super lame, now I don’t, I realize that it was I, in fact, who was super lame, and now I think Superman’s great. However, there are some things about Superman that I think tie him down, and if I was writing him, I would make him different. Most importantly, by embracing his role as the Superhero, a Paragon of Justice. And fundamentally getting rid of his secret identity and reporter job at the Daily Planet, and have Clark fully embrace his role as Earth’s greatest hero, for better or worse.
How do I personally see Superman? A role model, a paragon of good, the Superhero. He’s just a guy that wants to do some good, and devotes his life to it. People often make comparisons to Jesus, but do you know what Jesus doesn’t have? A secret identity. The guy just said, “I Am Jesus Christ, the Son of God” (More or less) and devoted his life to doing his thing. And look at how radically he shook things up. He literally died and created one of (If not the) world’s biggest religions.
Now, Jesus doesn’t need to be “relatable” or have a secret identity to have people like him, and I think that is what’s always keeping back Clark and Superman: The Daily Planet. Superman is at his best when his larger then life status as the Superhero is fully embraced. I don’t care about the Daily Planet, or whatever he writes. I’ve never cared about them in any of the Superman things I’ve watched or read about them. I don’t care about Jimmy Olsen or Perry White, and honestly I’ve never cared much for Lois either. I think Superman as a character has evolved far beyond them. He doesn’t need to be “relatable”, and trying to do that weird balance between God Among Men and totally relatable down to earth reporter just doesn’t work. Batman’s a larger then life superhero but he’s also a billionaire in real life. Peter Parker is a normal guy but he’s also not a massive world famous superhero, he’s just a guy in New York. You have to keep the Clark and Superman consistent. All the stuff I like about Superman I like about the archetype and idea of Superman, I don’t care about Clark the Reporter. And that’s why I think, while I’m not opposed to Clark having worked there once, I do not think that should be his primary career.
Now, let’s look at other beloved pop culture icons. Bob Ross. Steve Irwin. Mister Rogers. They don’t have secret identities. Captain America doesn’t either. So if it was up to me, I’d have Clark have fully embrace the Superman identity a long time ago, early in his career. In fact, in contrast to the idea that both Clark and Superman are pretending to be different people to Lois, I’d have Clark completely smash through that dichotomy. In his first interview with Superman, he just straight up reveals he is Clark Kent. He freely talks about his past. And this further contrasts Batman, who is incredibly secretive about his identity and wants to be a symbol of fear - nope, not Superman. He and Clark are one and the same, and Clark’s not afraid to admit it. Clark didn’t even set out to become a symbol - he just wanted to do the right thing and decided the only way to do that was to reveal his identity to the world and fully accept his role in changing and saving it.
Superman is a Paragon, a character that doesn’t change themselves but cause change. We don’t need Clark to be a reporter. He should fully embrace his role as Superman. However, let it be known that I believe Clark should always refer to himself as Clark, he’s a guy named Clark that happens to be an alien and happens to be Superman. He considers himself human who decided to fully embrace his potential with all of its ramifications, the idea being that he can exhaust himself or stress himself over the pressure of being the world’s greatest hero. He puts the burdens of humanity on his shoulders. Clark does all of this. Clark Kent does all of this, and becomes Superman.
Of course, Clark will have people to keep him grounded. Sometimes he just relaxes and just...does normal human stuff. He’s not hiding who he is either. But I fully believe the idea of Clark and Superman being interchangeable is what we should do with him. He doesn’t have a mask. He’s not like Batman, who wants to make Batman a symbol. He’s not like Spider-Man, who is just a street hero living in New York, and who literally constantly has his loved ones threatened. I feel like Clark should be different from them, and have fully embraced the superhero identity. But don’t worry, I’ll address the ramifications of that later. For now, I shall focus on:
Clark’s Childhood
Clark’s the guy who had his childhood go right. Jonathan and Martha Kent were good, loving parents. They instilled into Clark good values. Clark has a lot of good memories on his farms, on learning how to cook and fix machinery, on going fishing and going to places and in his lovely hometown. He got taught how to play guitar. He had a lot of friends growing up and he had a lot of fond memories. (Man, Superman really is unrelatable)
Clark’s a good kid. He’s also very charismatic and very genuine. He’s bright, idealistic, and optimistic. He also happens to be an adopted alien.
Jonathan and Martha will, aside from being farmers, be local community leaders. They work at homeless shelters. They build houses. They teach people how to take care of themselves. They organize community events, they fundraise for those that are in need of funds. They’re paragons, models, pillars of the community. It’s not that dramatic, they’re just two good farmers that like helping out the community, they’re pretty down to Earth, and Clark is going to follow in their footsteps. They will also, in their own ways, be exceptional characters with strong, likable personalities. They’re good people and good parents, and Clark absolutely loves and adores them, and still keeps in contract with them and asks for advice. There doesn’t need to be any conflict between them - Superman, being the most unrelatable character in fiction, actually gets along with his family whom he loves unconditionally, and who do the same back.
Clark grows up enjoying the idea of helping out people. He grows up with the idea that if people work together, they can accomplish wonderful things. That people need role models and guidance to achieve their best. He has the idea from a young age that while one man can’t save change everything - he can inspire people to follow in his footsteps. He can unite them to create change that can last beyond his death. An ideal is good to follow, but an ideal and an idol only means something if there are people working together to achieve whatever their dream is. This will be the fundamental essence of Clark’s beliefs - he will not accomplish everything on his own, he will not save the world by himself, but he can inspire other people to follow his example, and make the changes he cannot.
Clark’s that one kid that is unironically good. He joins all the school clubs. He probably runs for Student Council President, gets elected, and actually does something with it. He cares about things, like a fucking nerd. He’s an inspiring guy and a role model, because he likes doing the right thing and he likes helping people do the same. He’s polite to his teachers and his students. He actually likes learning, and gets good grades and is a model student. (Which singlehandedly makes him more unrelatable then Batman ever could be)
The idea is that, even if Clark wasn’t an alien, he would still be an absolutely exceptional human being. Even if he never had super powers, Clark had pure, genuine charisma and ideals, and the idea is that he would have always been destined for something, simply because he would have never been content with not reaching his highest potential and causing as much good change as possible. Perhaps he’d create some kind of big charity/humanitarian organization. Perhaps he’d become a genuinely good politician that cares not for power, but how to represent the people. Clark would have always been some kind of leader, role model, ideal, regardless of his heritage, but because of his upbringing. That’s why the Kents are important, because they made Clark the person he is, a good person who was had the confidence, passion, and skills to change the people around him - and the world. Clark was always going to be a role model. By being Superman, Clark just gets to be a role model and change the world on a far bigger level then he could imagine.
I’ve heard Grant Morrison say he’s a sort of Everyman, that he’s just a guy who has his adventures translated to a grand scale, and he’s a paragon and utterly genuine, larger then life ideal. And those are the idea(s) I’m running with. Superman’s beliefs are the beliefs of Clark Kent, a genuinely good person. Clark doesn’t need superpowers to work with charity organizations, or work in some peace efforts in a war torn country. That’s how I view Clark. Everything Clark does, he does because he wants to help in any way he can. That’s how I would make Clark Kent a likable person in comparison to say, Bruce Wayne. Not to say that Bruce isn’t likable - just that Clark is likable in his own, different way, that because of his upbringing he was always going to be, in one way or another, a different kind of hero.
Because like I keep saying, Clark Kent is a role model. An ideal. A modern day Ghandi or MLK or whatever big famous figure that changed the world by standing up for their beliefs you can think of. Clark doesn’t need to be “relatable,” he needs to be a role model, an ideal of someone aspiring to something higher then themselves and changing the world because of it, and inspires others to do the same. Clark Kent is the American Dream gone right. He would have gone on to do amazing things and changed the world no matter what. And I just don’t think Clark can do the same as a reporter. Reporters aren’t bad, but I’m just imagining Clark as something more.
Heck, even have his family enter local politics. In the show Smallville, Jonathan Kent runs for Kansas State Senator. Why not just have him for Mayor of Smallville? Something Clark inspires him to do. It shows how he inspires people to be their best selves and lead/unite the people around him. And Clark doesn’t have to be an alien or a reporter to do that.
Smallville is also a good town. The ideal American town. It’s got good people that Clark likes. But this is going to lead me to the subject of...
The People Clark Interacts With
Basic common writing advice is that usually when you need a character that needs character development, you pair them up with someone that doesn’t. You have someone well adjusted act as a grounding force for someone who needs some adjustment. Iroh and Zuko. Luke and Vader. Ect.
Clark is the Paragon that should interact with all sorts of people and cause all sorts of character development. This is another reason why I dislike the Daily Planet: Because it limits Clark’s supporting cast to a few people at a newspaper. Who should Clark’s supporting cast be? The entire Earth is his supporting cast. Literally anyone he interacts with is his supporting cast. He can be paired up with anyone and he’s got such a strong personality he can bounce off of them.
Even in High School, Clark should interact with all different kinds of people, not just Lana Lang and Pete Ross. The possibilities are literally infinite. Have Clark interact with a shy student and help bring them out of their shell. Have Clark tutor a kid with bad grades who doesn’t think they’re smart. Have Clark interact with an angry student, and either redeem him or stand up to his cruelty, no matter what. In the most extreme scenarios, pair off Clark against bad people. A shitty teacher or a shitty parent that is damaging their kid. In the most literal extreme scenarios, have Clark interact with a character like Regina George, whose selfishness is absolutely stonewalled by Clark’s sincerity and inability to allow people to be cruel to others. A corrupt cop, a crappy government worker, or shitty business owner. And if you want, Clark can have some minor reporting thing and expose them.
But just because Clark’s a role model doesn’t mean anyone else is. And he won’t always succeed. Sometimes he’s going to meet people he can’t change, people that don’t want to or can’t, such is life. Clark’s always learning lessons and changing in his own ways to.
And in the most absolute extreme case, pair off Clark with someone far gone. A person that blames the rest of the world for their problems, who brings their gun to school to get revenge. Have Clark try to reach out to him, sympathize with him, but if he can’t save him, Clark will stop him. And he will absolutely be willing to risk his identity to do so. Things aren’t going to be convenient. Clark’s a person that is willing to suffer the consequences as long as he can save lives.
It reminds me of an issue from Superman: American Alien where a local restaurant is robbed by some thugs at gunpoint, and Clark has to deal with them. Do more stuff like that. I don’t care about reporting, I want to see Clark’s character challenged by other characters.
My point is: Clark’s supporting cast can be anyone, and Clark’s personality is so strong any interaction he have with someone will either inevitably cause change or conflict. You can create literally anyone to bounce off him.
And of course, he shouldn’t interact non stop with school shooters and mean high school cliches. His parents should be wonderful people. Lana Lang should be a sweet, cute girl next door who is unconditionally kind, and represents the wholesome and peaceful, if boring, life in Smallville he could have had if he stayed.
I remember there was a short Superman comic called “Sam’s Story”, I believe written for the deceased son of Joseph Loeb who had passed form cancer. In the story, one of Clark’s closest friends from Smallville was a guy named Sam. He was tiny, weak, slowly dying from cancer and walked on crutches, and he was a funny guy. He made Clark laugh. They were good friends, and Clark deeply cared for Sam and was defeated when he passed - and Sam never had any idea about Clark’s heritage. His effect on Superman was entirely on Clark’s character as his friend from high high school.
Because Clark’s a good guy, he’s a role model, but sometimes he’s a bit too serious. Sometimes he needs people lighter then him to have him ease him, to teach him humanity. I’d fully recommend reading it. It’s a beautiful story - and it’s perfect for Superman. His supporting cast should be utterly sincere, genuine, human, grounded in humanity and grounding Clark in humanity. Clark needs people like this - so human and likable and grounded, to make his humanity worth staying attached to.
Metropolis
Clark’s a role model. He’s that fucking nerd that actually liked doing his homework and paid attention in class. As such, he would become Valedictorian and be offered a bunch of scholarships across the nation (An allegory for the potential of what a human an achieve if they set their minds to it) but he ultimately chooses Metropolis.
Metropolis should be the City of Tomorrow. A glorious city, featuring human ingenuity from all across the world, its the good city, unlike Gotham which is a considered by the world at large a crime ridden shithole. Metropolis is the your dream place to visit. Of course, it’s not perfect - there is a closed off, shitty area called the Suicide Slums, which is basically Gothamtown. But we’ll get to that later.
Again, Clark’s life is everything gone right. So Metroplis is the dream university. It features minds and cultures and students from all across the world, who actually want to learn and do shit. Clark’s a model student in a model university. Metropolis and Metropolis University is also Clark’s first contact with people from all over the nation and the world, and not just Smallville. And all it does it make Clark love humanity more, and further instills the ideas of people working together to create change. And again, his supporting cast can be anyone you can imagine in a College Campus. The possibilities are literally endless, you could literally invent anyone.
I don’t think Clark should study to be a reporter. Honestly, Lois is the only relevant reporter we need, so while I’m not sure what Clark would major in, it should be something other then that, something befitting for a major public icon and leader like him. I’m not exactly sure what though.
Either way, even in College, Clark continues to be unrelatable by having lots of friends and making the best out of his life. He makes study groups, he resolves arguments and fights, he stands up to crappy professors and students alike, ect. In his free time, he devotes his time to working at volunteer shelters, working with the community in Metroplis. He gets to see the best of Metroplis - but also it’s worst, because it’s more likely then not he works heavily in the Suicide Slums. Again, possibilities are endless. Throw Clark at problems he can’t easily solve, but have him try anyway.
The possibilities are only limited by your imagination. Have Clark teach people living in apartments how to make rooftop gardens. Have him work at animal shelters and teach people how to raise dogs, have him get mad as hell at animal abusers. Have him work with local construction workers to build housing. Have him work in a homeless shelter. Have him try to appeal to rich people for grants and fundraising.
And have him meet Lois Lane and Lex Luthor.
Lois Lane
I know in the comics, Lois’ dad is an Army General, but whatever, that’s dumb, this is my fanfic, I’m changing her.
Lois is the exact opposite of Superman. She’s a city girl. Worst case scenario, she grew up in the Suicide Slums. She’s incredibly cynical and pessimistic. She’s rude, blunt, ill tempered, snarky, and unlikable. She probably smokes, drinks, is prescribed pills she takes on the daily, and she doesn’t get enough sleep. She is argumentative, provocative, and confrontational, and lacks respect for just about everything, and creates more problems then she solves and more enemies then friends. She’s Clark’s utter opposite in terms of character. But in spite of everything, in spite of all of her disillusionment, she’s still trying, in her own way, to fight for justice. She’s a cynic who wants to be an optimist, and she keeps fighting, no matter what. She’s like Jessica Jones in a sense. She’s the “modern”, “relatable”, and “flawed” character we’re used to, to contrast Clark and his unironic do gooder nature. She grounds him and makes him more human, and he makes her her best self.
Now what about the Daily Planet? What about them. She can work there. Maybe it’s a respectable organization across the world. Maybe it’s an old newspaper about to run out of business. I don’t mind Clark or Lois working there. But I don’t think they should stay their forever. Perhaps it gets bought/run out of business by Lex. Perhaps Perry passes away from old age, and the board members take control and turn away the Planet’s focus, leading to Clark and Lois leaving if they worked there.
But Lois doesn’t need the Planet to be important. To give you an idea of what I’m envisioning: Imagine someone more like Alex Jones or JJJ from Far From Home/Spider-Man PS4. They rant and rage their opinions online. They fight for their causes online. Isn’t InfoWars actually a sort of newspaper website? Have that be like Lois’ thing, except it’s less about politics and more about justice and injustice and exposing the truth. Give her a YouTube channel and a big social media presence. A podcast. And long after Clark becomes Superman, she can evolve her own personal news site into something bigger. Perhaps she works with the Justice League, maybe she fixes up the Daily Planet, maybe she makes her own thing - but I’m not going to just keep her as a “reporter.” That’s lame.
She and Clark have such opposite personalities they will inevitably bounce off of each other endlessly. They disagree on nearly everything. But more importantly, I don’t want Clark to lie about his identity to her or let her walk all over him/treat him poorly. Clark should not be simping for Lois Lane. I don’t want him to pretend to be a caricature of someone that’s completely ineffectual. It’s been done for seventy years. Aunt May was old in the comics but she’s often aged down. Tony Stark originally had a secret identity and pretended Iron Man was his bodyguard, but the MCU had him reveal his identity in the first movie. Screw comics, I’m making the changes I want.
There’s a lot of stuff in Metroplis alone the two can do together. Just have Clark and Lois investigate an animal shelter that’s underfunded. An optimist and a cynic fighting for what’s right. It writes itself. Have the two work at a shelter and bounce off each other. Have Lois report on Clark’s community leader stuff and get dragged into it. Just do more stuff with them then “reporting”, have them interact with people and make actual change in the city. Have them inspire the people around them, create organizations designed to help, expose and fight the injustices and fight the good fight. And have Lois slowly become more and more optimistic and better to the people she interacts with, a side effect of Clark Kent - something that would have happened even if he wasn’t Superman. And she brings out a different, more human point of view to ground him down to earth, offers him practical and pragmatic advice on human nature. She makes him human, he makes her her best self.
And of course, that brings us to...
Lex Luthor
His backstory depends on whether or not Lionel Luthor exists. If he doesn’t, Lex grew up poor and abused in the Suicide Slums, and it broke his humanity and gave him the obsession of being the best. If Lionel does exist, that’s Lionel’s backstory, and Lex is a rich billionaire that got the shit beat out of him by his dad.
Lois may have also been from the Suicide Slums, but where it turned her into a cynic that still nonetheless tries to fight for justice, it turned Lex into a monster. They’re also further parallels in how Lois is outwardly an abrasive person but has a good heart and cares deeply for others where Lex is superficially charming but has a void of empathy and goodness in his soul, and cares only for himself.
Lex is the big person in Metropolis. He’s often called the Metropolitan Man. He claims to have singlehandedly changed the city, turned it from a Gotham into a Metropolis. He believes himself to be a paragon and ideal of humanity, an inspiration for the world. Now, he’s probably got a lot of shady stuff going on, so that’s where Clark and Lois come in. Lois investigates, and Clark is the person who as a public/community leader will clash with his big business corporate ideals. Lex is trying to buy out a small company or an apartment building? Nope. Clark’s going to stand up to that. Stuff like that.
That’s the dynamic I want for Clark and Lex. Even if Clark didn’t have powers, he may have very well still been a community leadepolitician who fought for what he believed in. Lois would have still worked with him. And they would have still been in conflict with Lex. Their clash was always inevitable, because Clark and Lex would be public symbols of men trying to do “the right thing” and be leaders and ideals to inspire in different ways. And I find that sort of conflict far more interesting then just making Clark a reporter. Lois is already a reporter anyway. That’s why I’m doing this with Clark - because he could stand up to Lex in a way Lois never could. Lois could turn public opinion against Luthor, but Clark could actually rally the people against him in an organized manner.
And if you want to bring in some of that classic Literal Social Justice Warrior Golden Age Superman who fought against corruption and business tycoons and tore down buildings because they weren’t up to code, you can absolutely have Clark do that, and you know what? Fuck it. Have his identity be known. He’s already an adult. He’s graduated College. He’s probably made an organization or two dedicated to helping out Metropolis. Just fully embrace him being the champion of Metropolis. He’s not fully Superman yet, he doesn’t have all his powers - but he can absolutely leap over top buildings in a single bound, he’s faster then a speeding bullet, then a locomotive...ect. That’s why he’s still just a hero in Metropolis, because he can’t fly across the world.
Speaking of Metropolis, it’s also the big city of the future with LexCorp and a lot of other weird shit. So we can definitely have Clark still fight aliens and whatever the hell you can imagine. Again, possibilities are endless. Honestly, Metropolis really needs more characters. That’s it and Superman’s biggest weakness. Batman and Gotham are full of life and characters. Gordon and the GCPD. Harvey Dent. The Bat Family. All the villains. Clark and Metropolis don’t need more people from Krypton or the Daily Planet, they need humans from Metropolis. Have Clark make all kinds of friends. A police officer. A doctor. A homeless man. A person who runs a homeless shelter. A genuine politician. A scientist. Literally anything, don’t limit him to the Daily Planet. And fuck, have him date more people then Lana, Lois, or Wonder Woman. I’m not suggesting have Clark be a womanizer, I’m suggesting pairing up Clark with different women for the sake of creating different stories.
Doesn’t Lex have a daughter or sister? Or remember Tess Mercer from Smallville? Pair em’ up with Clark. A supervillainess and a superhero. They don’t even have to be romantically involved for Clark to allow her to have character development or for them to be good foils to each other. It also allows Clark another victory over Lex - no Lex, abusing the shit out of your family doesn’t make them love you. That’s why she left you and decided to become a better person. Redemption arc, baby. Clark causes so many God damn redemption arcs.
Superman
So as you know, I’ve completely disregarded Clark’s being a reporter the Daily Planet. On the other hand, I do like what some incarnations have done: They’d have Clark travel across the world, meeting all kinds of people and learning all kinds of stories about humanity. Man of Steel had Clark travel the world. I think that’s an interesting aspect of Superman in his formative years: Him traveling across the world, meeting different people, doing all sorts of jobs, soul searching as he ponders his purpose.
Because while I’ve made Clark a paragon of justice, he has flaws. Amidst his charisma and his almost larger then life personality is a profound sadness and loneliness. For being the Last Son of Krypton. It’s all the guilt he feels for those who have died for or because of him. For those he couldn’t or can’t save. He literally cares too much. Because Clark doesn’t need character development, but he can still have flaws, the biggest being his high standards for himself, and the fact that he puts the weight of the world on his shoulders. He’s afraid of truly reaching his full potential because he’s afraid of the consequences.
And I’m going to change that. Just like Clark is going to fundamentally change the world - forever.
Clark unironically says “I’m gonna be a Superhero because it’s the right thing to do.” He starts doing things all over the world. Devotes his life to it. He interacts with all sorts of characters, literally anyone you can imagine. Some of Superman’s most profound moments are when he saves people from suicide. You can invent literally any character with any issue, from any nation - and in steps Superman, ready to help. It writes itself. And I’m not going to have that be held back by Clark being a reporter.
Clark knows he can’t save the world alone. That’s why he creates organizations. He creates, like a farmer creates his own produce for himself and others. He creates organizations and helps those he can like his parents did, like they did in Smallville and he did in Metroplis. Clark, as Superman, should create. He fully believes that he himself cannot save the world. But he can be an example, an ideal for humanity to aspire to be, who can enact the change he cannot, even long after his death. Like Jesus.
Clark should be the guy that creates the Justice League. He’s the one that’s optimistic enough to believe in the idea that they can change and protect the world, because he believes he can’t do it himself. Together, they can accomplish far more things then they ever could alone. Clark is the face of the Justice League and of superheroes everywhere, their unofficial leader. Of course, Batman and Wonder Woman can handle the more logistical roles to balance it out, but the point is that Clark is so unironic in his Boy Scout nature he literally creates a team of superheroes. Literally everyone else on the team could hate each other and believe it’ll fail - but not Clark. It’s his sincerity that unites the others and makes them agree to work together.
Clark should also set up the Hall of Justice in Metropolis. That’s what Metropolis should be, I think. The Superhero City. And maybe like Gotham and Marvel’s New York have an end of the world scenario every week, maybe like how My Hero Academia has heroes and villains commonplace, Metropolis is the face of the world that is slowly having more and metahumans, for better or worse. Metropolis can have anything you want in it, like how Marvel’s New York has the FF, the Avengers, Spider-Man, the Defenders, Doctor Strange, ect. Gotham can have Batman and his buddies, Metropolis should be the center and home of the DC Universe where literally anything can happen.
And beyond that, like I said, Superman should create organizations designed to help people, because Clark shouldn’t do things by himself. He’s a leader of people. If there’s a war torn country, he can have a peacekeeping humanitarian relief organization go down there and help out. A city was wrecked by some battle or natural disaster? Clark and his people help out. Superman is not about punching out people. It’s about how a man inspires hope in others by doing the right thing, by continuously choosing to help in any way he can, and how this creates an ideal for people to rally around, even without him. By building and creating, and uniting people around bettering themselves in any way they can. The organizations Clark creates should be able to function completely independently without him.
I don’t remember one story, but I remember a Superman story I believe penciled by Alex Ross where Superman tried to deliver food to a nation under a foreign dictatorship - but they military fired at him. Superman got sad, but then said that the world should look to him as an example, not to solve their problems, and backs off.
But let’s take that further. Superman is a character that believes he should not radically change any nation or organization’s power with his own, because otherwise he’d be corrupt, (It’s the plot of Injustice) but that doesn’t mean he can’t peacefully try to change things. Let’s say that foreign dictatorship tries to blow up the food. Superman appeals to the U.N and the people of the world, and to the dictators, to help. The dictatorship’s oppressed people, inspired by Superman, being peacefully protesting. Under intense pressure by the world’s governments, by its own people, and by the Justice League, the dictatorship peacefully backs down. Perhaps the dictatorship isn’t completely disbanded, but food is given to the people and some civil rights are restored; Superman is allowed to help. Things get better.
Let’s go back to Metropolis and bring up MHA again. In the show, there’s a Superhero High School where All Might, the Superman stand in and world’s number one hero, teaches. Have Superman do that! Teach the next generation of heroes. Be a good role model and teacher.
After all, Batman created Batman Incorporated out of the symbol of Batman. Why can’t Superman do the same? Clark’s identity being Superman should in no way at all be too drastic of a change, it would honestly allow more possibilities. He’s different then Batman who constantly breaks the law and hides who he is, he’s different then Peter Parker who is just a guy living in New York and his identity being known would actually cause more problems, because the appeal of Peter Parker is him trying to balance his normal life. It’s why they wear a mask, because they want to protect their identity. That’s why I won’t write Superman as having a secret identity - because Clark Kent is not hiding who he is. He is Superman. And he fully embraces the role, and it’s what in part allows the world to accept him and other heroes, where Batman was shrouded in fear.
Just do all kinds of crazy shit with him. Have him work with the world’s scientists to study places on Earth people can’t visit. Have him be a diplomat to other worlds and between nations. Have him help explore Space and shit. Have him do all sorts of science shit with his X-Rays and heat vision. Fully embrace him being the world’s biggest hero, go all out. The possibilities are endless. Have him write some books about his life, about the Justice League, ect. Just fully embrace the fact that he’s the world’s biggest hero and go wild with it.
But I’m not having Clark be a reporter. It’s just...I find it restricting. I’ve never liked it. That’s why I’m changing it, to make the most out of Superman.
Clark is a role model to humanity, and he interacts with literally anyone you can imagine. Of course, sometimes he’s just more relaxed, down to earth. He’s not Superman all the time. After all, he’s helped create the Justice League and a Superhero School. The world isn’t always ending. He can have off days. Sometimes he just wears normal clothes and talks to old friends. He visits the people he grew up with in Smallville. He visits the friends he made in Metropolis, or in another nation. Just because Clark revealed his identity doesn’t mean every moment of his life is going to be dedicated to super heroics. One good example is from Infinity War: Pepper and Tony were literally just jogging in the Park. Just have Clark jog in the Park, nothing wrong with that.
Design and Personality
In terms of design, the ones that I have the most in mind are:
The design from Injustice 1 and the Injustice Comics (Not Injustice 2, he looks a bit too weird) he’s pretty lean but stands tall and strong, and he’s voiced by the guy who voiced Sepiroth. But he’s very professional, straight to the point, he’s very simplistic and straightforward and uncomplicated and that’s why he works.
My other design I had in mind was if you wanted a more classic buff as fuck Superman design; Superman’s design from the Superman: Red Son movie. He’s swole, his hair is nice and he looks really good in his suits. Again, he’s got a simple, direct personality, and it works.
Clark shouldn’t be overly complicated. He doesn’t need character development. He causes character development. He’s a guy that has a loving family, has good friends, he’s not overly complex and layered. Nope, he’s just a guy that says “I’m gonna do the right thing” and he does it. He’s a Boy Scout. He’s pretty calm, chill, mellow, down to earth, likable, and agreeable. He smiles a lot. He sees the best in everyone and everything, but will not be shattered by the flaws of the world, even if they do weigh heavily on him. He does not hold grudges or get overly, unnecessarily emotional unless he needs to. He stands his ground and isn’t compromised easily. He’s not easily aggravated or annoyed. He has a deep fascination and wonder of people and the world. He finds the good in just about anyone and anything. He has a deep compassion for the people he meets, even the cruel ones. He’s just so simple it works. I don’t know how to explain it but he just does.
I also wouldn’t try to to necessarily give him more “relatable” aspects like making him overly funny or easy to aggravate. That’s not necessary. Other heroes can do that better. Just make Superman the unironic Boy Scout, that’s all you need to do. He’s a simple man that just happens to the greatest hero on Earth.
Krypton
Oh, and one final thing: Clark should not have a premade destiny. Jor-El didn’t send him to Earth to be Superman. There isn’t some big conspiracy and prophecy about his arrival. To take inspiration from The Prince of Egypt’s Moses. Moses’ parents were peasants being massacred. They weren’t important at all. But they set Moses down a river (With no idea of what his future would hold) in hopes he’d be safe. By chance, he was adopted by the Pharoah.
Clark’s parents from Krypton are ultimately unimportant. They shouldn’t be overly involved with Zod or the destruction of Krypton. There’s no one person that can be blamed for its destruction. Krypton was a dying world. Clark’s parents were desperate people that ultimately weren’t important, and out of desperation they sent their son to space. No destiny planned.
Clark’s “destiny” is entirely self made. He’s not destined to change the world because fate says so, he’s destined to change the world because he has such a strong, ambitious personality that him causing change is inevitable. That’s Clark’s Power. His ability to inspire, his ability to lead and create change. Clark was always going to cause change because the Kents made him the best he could be. That’s what makes him different from the Bruce Waynes or the Peter Parkers, I would write Clark as someone who would have genuinely become a world leader or major figure even if he wasn’t Superman.
I don’t think that’s unrelatable. To me, Superman is an idealized image of ourselves. He had a good family. He had good friends, a good town to grow up in, and who all gave him good values. Clark enjoyed life and applied himself to helping others, was a model student, graduated from high school, got a scholarship to a good university and met people from all over the world. He began working in the city, changing the minds of cynics and weary optimists, inspiring them to be better in his simple acts of kindness and humanity. As he got older, he made more allies, he created organizations designed to protect and help others, and he aided those all across the world, becoming a symbol and ideal for humanity to aspire to.
And Clark doesn’t need super powers to do any of that.
Oh, and honestly, if it was up to me, I don’t think I’d write having any survivors from Krypton like Supergirl Clark could relate to. The tragedy is that the only one he can relate to would be someone like Zod, someone he could never get along with. Clark is truly the last of his kind. He’s truly alone in that sense.
In Conclusion
Ultimately, in a way, I’m not writing Superman: I’m writing Clark Kent, a simple, good guy that wants to do the right thing and just happens to be an alien with super powers who just happened to the be world’s greatest hero. And by doing this, he becomes larger then himself, larger then life. His best self, the ideal self. An aspiration, the Ultimate Hero. He as a person is not a profound character, because he’s not overly complex. He is not an all knowing God beyond humanity. In fact, he’s rather simple and straightforward. But it’s through this simplicity that he becomes profound. He’s a simple guy that causes profound changes to the people he interacts with and the world. Out of all the Justice League, he is in a way, the most grounded, relatable, and human of them all.
And ultimately, to be a hero, Clark Kent doesn’t need to be Superman.
He just needs to be Clark Kent.

2020.05.01 18:59 _Winterlong_ JNOMIL unblocked DH because the world is ending and they have to say goodbye

ETA TW: Mental Health
ETA #2 I DO NOT GIVE MY PERMISSION TO HAVE THIS SHARED ANYWHERE OUTSIDE OF THIS SUBREDDIT
I can’t believe I’m back already. My JNOMIL is the one who blocked my DH and I on Facebook and messenger because we refuse to buy into her conspiracy theories about the world ending, JFK JR coming back from the dead, Luke Perry’s death being a deep state coverup, etc. She also has a lot of mental health issues she doesn’t deal with. I also think I’m going to need a name for her - I’m open to suggestions.
As a reminder, DH works away at the moment and I am in self-isolation 27 weeks pregnant and I only see him every second weekend.
Because DH works away, and I’m nervous with this pregnancy, he sleeps with his phone ringer on in case something happens and I need to call him in the middle of the night.
Wednesday at 130am he wakes up to his phone beeping repeatedly and at first panic he thought it was me. His mom is texting him, pleading with him to believe her, he HAS to watch this one video before morning because the world is ending tonight and they NEED to say their goodbyes. She directs him to look at the video in messenger. He didn’t respond to her, but he did check messenger and there was nothing from her. It didn’t come through until 8:30 that morning, he couldn’t figure out the delay, but I did instantly. She had to have forgotten she blocked him on there and probably couldn’t figure out why it wasn’t going through. He asked if I had received anything from her, but thanks to you kind reddit people, you showed me how I could block her while I am blocked and I did just that.
So my bet of her waiting until July (due date) to unblock was wrong, but I believe after she sent the messages in messenger she blocked him again...but yet not blocking him for text messages. What’s the point?! Especially if she’s going to reach out via text? He only downloaded the messenger app because she asked him to as it was free for her - he doesn’t use it to talk to anyone else.
He fills me in later on in the day about all this. At this point, I’m struggling to have patience with this woman and I know I’m getting snarky because I honestly just don’t know how to handle this anymore. I asked what exactly he believes she thinks is happening - how does the world just ‘end’? His response: “Babe, she thinks its Ragnarock”. Ah - finally something I can somewhat understand (I’m Norwegian, huge Thor fan my entire life). He’s concerned because he knows she’s been this unstable his entire life but as an adult he doesn’t know if he’s ever seen her this wrapped up in a conspiracy (and that’s saying something - in the 80’s she was convinced CSIS and CIA had tapped their phones and were listening in on conversations so she would create codes to talk in or walk to pay phones. I’ve often wondered if she has Schizophrenia-induced paranoia). I asked if he wanted to call in a wellness check and he said kind of but at the same time, she isn’t threatening to harm herself. We also have no idea where she lives (she couch surfs a lot until she’s kicked out, sometimes she lives in her camper van, etc.) and the city she lives in is a major Canadian city. And he’s concerned about what she would do if she found out it was him that called it in, after seeing how she put our infertility info on facebook, AND all the posts calling out “the rat” who was reporting her fake news posts (It’s me - I’m the rat, she doesn’t know). And I flat out said - who cares? DH NEVER goes on his facebook, EVER. Before his mother blocked me, I monitored every post she made, and most were met with comments from her friends calling her out on fake news and she would lose her mind on those people and tear them apart. I did it a couple times, but she never once responded to me (I’d always comment politely with proper facts and links, or even telling her to actually read the post she just shared because it’s FOUR YEARS OLD and not current news). I told him it was very obvious that most of her friends list see her for who she truly is and how she truly acts. And the wellness check would be out of love, not a malicious attempt to shut her up (though I know she wouldn’t see it that way).
Wednesday night when we were saying good night, I jokingly said “Well, see you in Valhalla!” That got me a huge eye roll. And Thursday morning when I woke up I messaged him and said “well I guess I’m still on Midguard for another day with the peasants - what about you?”. Like I said, I was getting tired and snarky that this woman can’t see through her own fake news and she has nothing to say for herself when the world continues to NOT END. It’s merely delayed.
Then DH said something that concerned me on a new level - this is obviously a “cult” following. When DH was 5-6 years old, his mother moved him and her to a new country to specifically JOIN A CULT. It lasted about a year. I asked him if she would do this again and he admitted he was surprised she hadn’t already. So then I spent half the night laying in bed wondering if this poor (both in the literal and emotional sense) woman is being taken advantage of. She’s very vulnerable and I can’t help but wonder who is turning the keys on her end to get her so worked up. Can it really be just the news? I had my cousin look up her profile (it’s open) and the day she blocked us there were about 50 posts she said. All various conspiracies and random comments and bible versus. It almost feels like someone is “pushing” information out there to individuals such as herself. And just like that, I felt bad for being snarky and joking about her beliefs because she is obviously very troubled by them.
My mom’s friend had a meme on facebook and it said “I don’t go crazy. I AM crazy. I just go normal from time to time”. And that really hit me hard. His mom isn’t stable, she’s unstable and becomes stable sometimes. DH agreed she’s been more unstable than stable his entire life. It was as if a lightbulb went off in my head. She’s not stable with periods of instability, she’s consistently unstable, with small periods of stability. Seeing it that way has really opened my eyes and has helped in accepting we will never have a “normal” relationship with her. We can try to enjoy her small periods of stability and take advantage of knowing her in that state, but when she’s unstable unfortunately we have to distance ourselves. Does that make sense? To me, it makes it easier to assume the worst but hope for the best. For me mentally it just makes it that little bit easier to assume she’s in her unstable period all the time. And I still plan to uphold boundaries and not let her around our child when she’s in her instability periods and I still plan on holding her accountable for her actions. I guess the past few days just made it all make more sense and that little bit easier for me to let go, not feel guilty and to stay emotionally uninvolved. She can be a very draining woman.
Sorry - this kind of turned into a rant/venting session but I just had to get this off my chest. DH is actually able to come home this weekend so it will be interesting to see if she’s still pushing her conspiracy videos. She refuses to talk about anything else at this point.

2020.04.27 18:53 _Winterlong_ JNMIL blocked me because I wont share my pregnancy with her

I’m a long time lurker and commenter, first time poster. I have started so many posts in this subreddit and deleted before I finished. There is a lot of history, but I’m going to stick with the most recent issue and see how it goes, maybe I’ll fill in all the back stories.
This group has helped me SO much processing my JNMIL. I’ve really learned not to take her attacks personally anymore. Thanks everyone.
TW: Mental illness, infertility/miscarriages (minimal talk)
NO ONE HAS MY PERMISSION TO USE MY POST. IT STAYS ON REDDIT. GO FIND YOUR OWN JNMIL IF YOU NEED STORIES TO MAKE MONEY.
I am currently just shy of 27 weeks pregnant (extremely high risk) after multiple fertility treatments and 5 miscarriages. My mom passed away from terminal cancer within 6 weeks of diagnoses 2 summers ago. My D(ear)H’s mother lives 12 hours away and suffers from bi-polar disorder, manic-depression, and borderline personality disorder. DH (35M) and I (35F) have been together for almost 8 years, married for almost 6 of those and I have met this woman 5 times. In the 8 years I’ve known my husband, his mother has changed her name to 5 different variations of 2 first names and 3 last names. Her current variation is allegedly a serial murderer in a foreign country and she LOVES it. When things don’t go her way, she changes part of her name and tries again. We live in the land of maple syrup. I think this is the gist of what you need to know.
We went abroad for a fertility treatment and yay - it worked! I am almost 27 weeks pregnant with a little girl and we are over the moon. We didn’t tell his mother until we announced it on social media (I tagged DH in the post) at about 17 weeks. She sent DH a picture of her “ugly crying” with happiness. And the caption “I’ll finally be a real grandmother!” Wow, so I guess her 5 step grandchildren don’t count. Right away my feathers were ruffled, until DH’s oldest brother wrote on our announcement “I’ll finally be a real uncle!” (He has a stepchild! He’s been in this child’s life since he was like 2 years old and is almost 10 now!). Not only were my feathers ruffled I was hitting the roof with their mentality. But ok.
Now this is important - I have had NO contact with DH’s mother. We tried that about 5 years ago and she’s a master manipulator, throwing us against each other and using us for information to use against the other. I could never figure out why DH was so distant with his mother, I thought it was just him and surely her and I could be good friends? So wrong, so so wrong. I was so naive. Both of DH’s brothers approached him when we first started dating and told him if he ever wanted our relationship to work out to never introduce me to their mother, that every relationship they’ve ever had she’s ruined. So after a few stunts, I left all contact up to DH; he could decide what he did and didn’t share with her and I was fine with that.
Once we announce we are pregnant, guess who is adding me to social media?! I asked DH what I should do - I post a lot and he never does. We decided I would add her, but I purposely put her on a restricted list so she would only see the posts of my choosing. This was very clearly a bad idea. I had no idea she was a conspiracy theorist - 5G is trying to kill us, the Americans made the coronavirus to tank every other country’s government and take over the world, china has the vaccine and wont share, JFK JR is STILL ALIVE! And the “deep fake” orchestrated Luke Perry’s death! She also would frequently post about the world ending (this is when DH told me she was an Evangelical) and everyone needs to repent their souls before it’s too late. And the fake news, ooooooh the fake news. And the pictures of herself smoking marijuana. One of the pictures she was recreating a sexual dream she had. I showed DH and he almost puked and said it was as bad as when she sent him a “Self portrait” (she’s an artist) of her naked with tigers (Carole Baskin, ya’ll!). About a month ago, she had a huge “woe is me” post writing about her issues with her health (Did you know? She got shingles ON HER EYE and almost went blind but was HEALED in 3 days! But because of the treatment she needed, she was exposed to SO MANY COVID-19 positive patients! And she got a massive parking ticket! And she can’t see her bf!) and then decided to update everyone on her 3 children. When she got to us, she spoke of all of our fertility issues and miscarriages and said “DIL is sitting at home doing nothing pregnant for the umpteenth time just hoping to carry this one to term”. Bish...bag your pardon? Who said you could talk about that? DH asked if he wanted me to message her to take it down. I said no, out of morbid curiosity I wanted to see where this rabbit hole would lead us and I’d be more than happy to confront her about it.
And then, my messenger started blowing up. I purposely didn’t open any message so she could never see it was read. I could see bits and pieces obviously when it’s sent and all of what I could see was conspiracy theories and bible verses typed out in all caps. So I ignored it. Fast forward to last Wednesday and she’s going off again sending me more links to conspiracies which again I don’t open. Shortly after, DH texts me from work, asking if I had talked to his mom and if so what did I say? I said I still hadn’t opened the messages or responded - and why?? She texted him this huge long rant about how disrespectful I am for not including her in this pregnancy and not giving her the intimate details she wanted and she’s done nothing by try try try with me and she does NOT want to hear the excuses or reasons I have. DH said “ok” (It’s important to note for the past 2 weeks he could tell she was going into one of her lower cycles of her depression and figured a spin out was coming). And she kept messaging back “I mean it! I don’t want to hear any reason or excuse” and he would say “Fine”. And avoided it. She ended it with “I’m blocking her!” And DH told her that was ok, she didn’t have to have me on her friends list. She was getting more and more agitated at not getting the fight she was looking for. DH thinks because my mom passed away that she assumed she would be the natural choice to “fill the void” and that I’d surely welcome her in and accept her as “mom” and tell her everything. You’d cringe if I told all the stories of her.
Curiosity got the better of me, so I thought I better open this up. There were about 30 messages of conspiracy theories and bible verses and the world ending, and 1 message asking how me and baby were doing and what did she do to upset me could I forgive her because she’s terribly sorry. Her ramblings weren’t making sense. And sure enough, she blocked me. I honestly laughed and thought in my head ‘Watch, she’ll unblock me in July when I’m due.’
Well this leads to yesterday. Since she’s blocked me and can’t send me her conspiracies she’s now sending them to DH who has NO tolerance for it whatsoever. She asked him if he had a chance to watch all the videos and he said he didn’t watch them. She asked why. He said, and I quote: “I didn’t watch them because I didn’t think I would learn anything from them”. One video was 45 minutes long! She said “okay then” and he went to respond and it said he couldn’t reach her by messenger. So he looked her up on Facebook and yup - he’s blocked. “My mom blocked me!” He said in a high pitched voice half-laughing. So I told him my theory, and he agrees we will be unblocked by the time the baby comes because she can’t stay away.
With her mental health issues, she’s on and off her medication and doesn’t treat all issues. I have spoken to a mental health nurse in the past and DH has gone to counselling to help manage her impact. Consequences aren’t a thing with her mental health issues especially when she isn’t seeking treatment. I had in-depth conversations about this with the mental health nurse and I was told I was wasting my breath trying to implement boundaries with consequences, that she would never learn and it doesn’t work like that for her.. We are conscious that we don’t have to put up with her abuse. We went over our boundaries (which are now sky high along with the wall we’ve put up) because I was scared of something happening after I give birth. One of my friends said the first 4-12 weeks after birth are the biggest emotional roller coaster of your life and I wanted to make sure I was of “Sound mind” having this conversation and not in an emotional state. She is NOT welcome to come for a visit. She will be the last to know when the baby is born and she’ll find out on social media (IF she unblocks us). We’ve basically decided whatever we are comfortable posting on social media is all she will know; there will be no further intimate details. DH is slightly concerned she’ll show up unannounced in the middle of the night which I guess is her trademark. I asked what he would do. Our house is small and we cant accommodate and I feel like we would be rewarding bad behaviour. DH has a very shiny spine and said he would tell her to get the hell out, she’s out of our lives for good and to never contact him again.
My biggest concern was if she ever finds out we used an egg donor. She is totally the person who would throw in my face that it’s not “really” my baby. We have only told close friends and family about the egg donor and everyone has been incredibly supportive. I just don’t trust her with the information. We plan on telling our LO from day one, and I told DH I also don’t trust what she would tell LO about that. Thankfully he’s said that she will never get alone time with our kids until they are 18 and can choose to themselves. He agreed the egg donor portion was something she would never be told and I was thankful for that. DH’s biggest concern is her hurting me or LO, not so much him. And I said the only way she could hurt me was with the egg donor thing; I’ve seen her ways, I’ve been able to let her and her ways start rolling off my back and I realize it’s not as personal as I thought it was when I first met her.
I have family where she lives and NEXT summer (2021) we will likely drive out to see them. I asked what do we do? Do we meet up with her and pretend this never happened? I hate rug sweeping and I’m terrible at faking politeness in situations like this. He said she’ll definitely be up to talking before that and we’ll likely do what we always do - meet her in a food court for a 1 hour lunch and continue on with our trip and not tell her where we are staying (she tried to show up at our hotel once). Part of me hates this - I still feel like we are rewarding bad behaviour. I told him in this group usually it’s suggested if the grandparent can’t respect the parents then no access to the child. I also don’t feel comfortable just sending him with the baby for lunch. We are a package deal. He said we can’t “weaponize” the baby and use it against her and he is totally right, that’s not what I want to do and I know I’m not articulating it right. But I’d like some kind of acknowledgment. But she also has narcissistic tendencies and nothing is EVER her fault, ever! Everyone is out to get her. And every man she meets is sexually attracted to her and wants her shudders. It’s really like dealing with a child who doesn’t know better and never will.
DH said she’ll always be allowed to ask for his love because she is his mother and despite everything he does love her and he knows she’s sick. But ultimately, me and LO are his family now and his main priority and we will always be his first choice. He’s OK cutting her out if things go really bad. In the 8 years we have been together, the first 3 they were NC and have been between NC and VLC since. What saddens me most is my LO will never have a “real” grandma. I had the best grandmas, we did crafts, baked, picnics, etc. And my mom was SO excited to be a grandma, she would have been fabulous. And that’s one thing DH said to me - I have to get the image of my perfect grandma out of my head because LO will never have that and I can’t keep dwelling on it. He’s right. And my mom’s sisters are so ready to jump in and help. In our family, the little kids call all the “old” (second) aunts “Auntie Grandma” so my baby will have Auntie Grandma’s stepping in to help out.
I think we’ve got this....anyone else had a similar situation? How bad was it when the baby came? I’m an anxious person and I like to think of all possible scenarios so I’m not caught off-guard when something does happen. I like to be prepared.

2020.04.18 01:43 CyrusWaugh Top 30 hits of the 2010’s

Well this is a thing were doing as were cooped up inside. For this I took what I thought to be the 30 biggest and most iconic hits and ranked them, using my 30 point scale of instrumentation, vocals and lyrics with an extra 10 point for overall impact on the industry, I’d love to know how you view it, but first a few clarifications, this is a ranking of the biggest hits, some you won’t like, even I have distaste for a few, I’ll save the best songs for later down the line, I’m just taking each hit and ranking them worst to best, I’m not calling these 30 the best just the biggest. Also one song per artist as a certain chief would probably overwhelm this top 30 and a certain duo that must not be named and has grown an overall distaste from people over the years would also swarm it with probably 10 songs. So lets get started shall we.
30 . Peter Pan-Kelsea Ballerini
Definitely one of the more obscure ones on this list but it was a huge hit in its own right, a lot of people have praised it, I don’t think that at all, a lot of lines where just copied and pasted to give the illusion of rhyming because overall the song is a mess, is this a reflective song, a power ballad, this song doesn’t decide what is half the time, vocally it is overall drab and bland. I don’t see the huge appeal of this song, its not that catchy and the overall package is the reason its dead last.
  1. Die A Happy Man-Thomas Rhett
Ah yes Thomas Rhett, every girls dream boat and every man’s dream to kill him and dump him off a boat. Thomas Rhett’s second single off his sophomore album became the biggest hit of his career, this song exploded, sure it was an Ed Sheeran rip off, and I’m an Ed Sheeran fan but it is a solid rip off, it is sweet though hollow, it is way to checklisty. If you locked me in a room and made me come up with a song based off this premise this would be the result. Lyrically it is pretty shallow and often was the production even though I heard a fair amount of steel throughout it. Die A Happy Man was seen as the biggest hit of the 2016 until H.O.L.Y came around swiped that away from him. Die A Happy Man accomplished what it went out to do, I still listen to it to this day, and I say a large amount of people still do.
  1. Girl In A Country Song-Maddie & Tae
With this being so low on the list you know its getting heated, 2014 was the year of the bros, all about riding that donkey, burnin’ it down with some cold jack daniels and getting in trucks, so many trucks. Then this song came along and said f*** you to the bro artists, f*** you to the producers and f*** you to Nashville. Production and lyrics do get quite a bit in the way, and I agree with Trigger’s review of it as he tore it to shreds. No one back then would’ve thought this would succeed. But this song went straight to number one beating all these bros, that’s how many people were fed up with bro country, impact was close to a 9 or 10 but with the overall production and lyrics, it was as shallow as a bro song. I love it, but I see for what the song truly is and it is not that great.
  1. Tequila-Dan + Shay
I swear this song barely beat Maddie & Tae for me, and as a song Maddie & Tae blew them out of the water but when it came to overall impact, Dan + Shay did the same to them. Calling this song a smash is an understatement, this song blew up so fast and it stayed with people for almost a year and a half. I think it is fine, its not as good as speechless, it definitely feels like a pop song with a hint of twang but what makes this song soar is Dan + Shay’s vocal performance, say what you want about these guys, call them shallow, call them gay Rascal Flatts, I’ve said it. But the one thing I cannot deny is that these guys can sing, their vocal power is off the charts, they know when to get belty with their vocals and soft in the more melancholic moments.
  1. Drunk On A Plane-Dierks Bentley
Ah, yes…Dierks Bentley, what would I do without you. With one exception I’d say this is the Friend’s In Low Places of the 2010’s, it tells a story, all about partying while getting drunk, it’s a fun storytelling song, you think it’s a good bro song then you start hearing fiddle, and you wonder what’s Dierks Bentley doing and then it hits you, this isn’t a bro song, it’s a country song period. Dierks Bentley is known most probably for this song. I think it’s a lighthearted comedical journey. It feels like a movie from comedy central, I’ll watch forever but I’ll still laugh and enjoy it every single time.
  1. Head Over Boots-Jon Pardi
I debated over what to put here, Dirt On My Boots or Heartache On The Dancefloor but then I remembered this gem, This was huge in 2016, which made you wonder, an actual country song on the radio, what is going on? This is a sweet neo traditional smash, this was the follow up to this neo traditional movement set up by Chris Stapleton. I think it is weak in terms of lyrics, but it’s a mighty strong earworm and the instrumentation is gorgeous. This was the first step to getting the master craft of Heartache Medication and what a good first step it was.
  1. Are You Gonna Kiss Me Or Not-Thompson Square
Ah yes, everyone who grew up in the 2010’s remembers this song, a lighthearted lovely story, I enjoyed it as a kid, and I appreciate knowing it now growing up in high school. The story flows really nice, I definitely think it’s a bit shaky in terms in vocal, this was massive on the airplay, too bad it was one of the good storytelling songs we had for a long time as bro country began to infect Nashville and songs like this began to disappear. It’s isn’t this big traditional song with gorgeous instrumentation but it has its own charm to it.
  1. I Drive Your Truck-Lee Brice
I Drive Your Truck is a mixed bag, it has neat lyrics, this is a song that talks about a truck but it digs into the interesting details likes dog tags and Gatorade, I think this would work as an acoustic ballad rather than a power ballad, it has some really strong vocal moments but a good amounts it is really lackluster. The drums are way too loud for me. But when we get to the buildup, the pay off is extremely satisfying but then it plateaus a little bit but when we reach the ending I feel the emotion Lee Brice feels when recording this song. His live performance has far more raw emotion and I recommend checking that out.
  1. Drink A Beer-Luke Bryan
This is the one thing that made me have somewhat of respect for Crash My Party, by itself its one of the most successful albums of the 2010’s. This grew to be his most respected song, not to mention it features Chris Stapleton and I think he cowrote it too. I think it is a bit too simplistic with the details but I won’t deny that this blew up quite a bit, not as much as Play Again or That’s My Kind Of Night but it was a huge hit in its own right. I’d say a lot of traditionalists tipped their hat to him for actually creating a laid back ballad about loss and ways to mourn and cope, listen to it if you haven’t already.
  1. Dirt Road Anthem-Jason Aldean
Ah…the song that kickstarted the age of bro, I liked this song as a kid quite a bit.
Now when I hear this song
I really
really
really
Still Like It.
For Bro’s first outing this song worked extremely well, I kind of got sick of the pop phase people like Taylor Swift and Lady Antebellum brought and at the time this was breath of fresh air. I heard real drums, steel, not drum loops and electric guitar only. I missed this sound and if Bro brought it back I genuinely didn’t care that much, boy what karma that was come 2013. The rap verses move fluidly, talking about things I actually know, like corn bread and at least back then I could relate to dirt roads, nowadays I can’t stand it when a song brings that up. The impact it had was huge, while it started the incubation period for bro country, the song was a huge hit, the only reason Jason Aldean is as big as he is, is because of Dirt Road Anthem, unlike a lot of the bro era, this song aged well.
  1. Humble And Kind-Tim McGraw
Taking us into the top 20 is this “masterpiece”. I actually thought I’d put this in the top ten but when I thought about it really, what made this song truly special in the first place? “Oh its about embracing diversity”, no it isn’t it doesn’t bring up diversity once in the song, it is only implied if you watch the video, and don’t get me wrong the video visually is fantastic, but the song and the footage don’t fit together. Production wise it is butchered compared to the original songwriter’s version, I’d say it is Lori McKenna’s most famous write given to another artist, but nowadays this song hasn’t stayed with me or a lot of people whatsoever and this is a song that won song of the year and statistically was the number 3 song of 2016. As a song about how to live life, of course it works I enjoy it for what it is and while the overall package is lackluster but I think it is still a bit special.
  1. I Want Crazy-Hunter Hayes
Here is another Lori McKenna write, I don’t think most people realize it is, or how good of a good write it is. Before all the pretty boys of Thomas Rhett, and Brett Young we had Hunter Hayes, a pretty boy who tried to bring quality into his work. This song is a testament to his mission. I think it works very well instrumentally, it has several shades of pop but within that you get traditional sounds like steel and mandolin. And besides the technical things, this song is a JAM! Hunter Hayes moves lyrics so fluidly, unlike others in Nashville, Hunter Hayes didn’t need to have autotune to back him up, his concerts were full of life, he knew how to be a performer not just stay in one corner of the arena and lick his lips and be boring the whole time. Hunter Hayes was a drop of potential in a sea of mediocrity.
  1. My Church-Maren Morris
My Church is a bit strange in terms of production with the vocal, it wants to take me to church and I think it does a little bit. I like the references in it with Hank Williams and Johnny Cash, and I think this a song a lot people can relate to. I’m not that big on religion but there’s always a place I can go that is my church. I can’t help but to sing along to it, its melody is like a gospel. I’m glad it was a hit, her most respected hit and up till now her biggest (thx The Bones >:(. For a while the female side of country was honestly getting worse than the men, all of these singles were just begging for airplay with cheap production and hollow lyrics, this was a song that didn’t feel like a radio song with a relatable story, I’m glad it was a hit.
  1. Girl Goin’ Nowhere-Ashley McBryde
It pains me, this was one the highest scores I gave for a song in terms for the song itself, but when it came to overall impact I honestly say it is dead last in terms of that which made it land at 17, I would love to put in the top ten where it belongs but I have to be fair. Girl Goin’ Nowhere is nothing short of a masterpiece. One of the most heartfelt moments in the 2010’s was her singing this song in the grand ole opry, for a girl being told she would never succeed to finally being where she’s always wanted to be, where she was meant be. Lyrically it is beautiful and instrumentally the reflection of her journey is paved through every tap of the wire brushes, every chord of that guitar, this song while not her biggest on the radio, is what made me discover Ashley McBryde when she performed it at the ACM awards, one of the most heartfelt performances of the night.
  1. When It Rains It Pours-Luke Combs
A masterpiece in comedy, this is one of the rare cases of comedy being a story in modern country music, I’d say this is the Friends In Low Places of the 2010’s, agree or disagree that’s how I view it and that’s how I view Luke Combs, as a guy who can appeal to the bros, the partyers and the intellectuals in country music. Every verse is different throughout the whole song. This song is proof, you don’t need to be deep and mature to create a lyrical master craft. You can be as stupid and funny as you want, Luke Combs brings it with his vocal power, selling every single aspect of this absurd story, its not just Luke Combs at his finest but country music at some of its best.
  1. Mean-Taylor Swift
Come on everyone knows Mean, and if you’ve never heard of it, what have you’ve been listening to. Everyone’s known some macho jerk and this song is planting a flag to just say, wait and see. That’s all this song is about, you’d think that push this song lower but it makes even better, Taylor Swift is a big pop superstar now but back then, you had your fiddle, your mandolin in her repertoire. It was a big crossover hit everyone knew. The way she says he’s a liar and pathetic is hilarious, I love this song, as I’ve felt this way before. Also I cannot walk into a cracker barrel without hearing this song once, why that is, is beyond me, but this song brings me back to a simpler time, when country music was just country music, and nowadays we have to label everything like a fridge that has 4 roommates living together.
  1. Take Your Time-Sam Hunt
Apparently a lot of people say this is just bro garbage, I literally don’t see that. Sam Hunt has a way of communicating in his smooth talk sequences, sometimes it is used at the wrong time, but I feel it fits quite well. I believe people give too much of him a hard time for this, it denied Girl Crush for the number one song of the year statistically so I can get the hate a little bit, but numbers are numbers who cares. I definitely think Girl Crush is better but not by much I honestly think they are pretty close. Sam Hunt will always be seen as the douche who invaded country music and blew up the preconceived notion of what a country song is. Sure nowadays who hasn’t done that, but I view Sam Hunt as the douche who invaded and disrupted country music and ruined it, but did a good job.
13.Need You Now-Lady Antebellum
The mother of all pop crossovers, to say this was big is an understatement, this song was freaking everywhere. My home, school, grocery stores, everywhere I went this song was there. Why isn’t in the top 5 you wonder, because I don’t see the appeal. This is a perfect 10 in impact on the industry, but I don’t get why people loved this song. Sure it is a smash I get that, but what was so special about, what made it different from all the other breakup songs out there? I don’t see it, I see it as a wholesome mess, a song that does ring nostalgia but that’s it, to put it in perspective, it reminds me of 2010, but it doesn’t make me want to relive like other songs on this list from 2010. I will say it deserved its success even though I don’t think its that great. If you love this song, that’s totally fine, I see the appeal but this one’s just not for me.
  1. Why Don’t We Just Dance-Josh Turner
Now this makes me want to relive 2010, this song just ages like a fine wine, especially with our current predicament, all of the craziness we have to endure, it’s the little things maintaining my sanity, this song is that dialogue to a T. This isn’t just a fun jam, sonically it is so soothing, blending rock n roll with traditional elements, you got your rock n roll piano, with fiddle and steel laid throughout it all. Josh Turner brings it with his deep belting vocals. I can listen to this and it brings me back to a time when life was easy.
  1. As She’s Walking Away-Zac Brown Band ft. Alan Jackson
So many people know this melody, Zac Brown is, sorry let me rephrase that, WAS known for this richness in their sound, for bring a modern take on rustic sounds. Everyone’s has had this moment where you regret not talking to this person you’re in love with, I’ve been through and chances are you’ve been there to. Also it has Alan Jackson one of the all time greats, Zac Brown is most known for being the Chicken Fried lovers but this is what launched their 2010 album You Get What You Give into the stratosphere of the best of this decade (with Colder Weather not too far behind) This is a simple song, but it’s a simple song I needed, and I still need it, and will still as I go through life.
Now we’ve reached the top 10 the s tier, so lets get into this, I’d love to know your ten in the comments.
  1. Space Cowboy-Kacey Musgraves
This is just nothing short but perfect (well almost perfect) her new echoey shimmer vibe she’s now known for comes out best in this record (by not really being there at all) this is definitely her biggest one on Golden Hour and it’s the fan favorite on it. The impact this had was huge, now I know what your thinking, this never even reached the top 10, how did this impact anything if it couldn’t break the glass ceiling. I agree it didn’t break the glass ceiling I hoped it would break, but it allowed for others to break it, I believe because of her Nashville began considering investing in the women of country music again, look at it right now, a woman has the number one spot which hasn’t happened since 2014, 3 songs are in the overall top ten for country music. I think it was all because of this song. And lets get into the song itself, it is a strange beautiful journey. Lyrically it is so good with wordplay describing how this person doesn’t want to be here anymore, and instead of this big emotional power ballad break up, Kacey says, I get that you don’t want to be here, so instead of drama, just leave, I’m letting you go, if that isn’t powerful I don’t know what is. It is laid back in production, which is what a song like this needs, a song with powerful emotions like this need air to breath. Kacey Musgraves did what many, even I thought to be impossible and that’s win the biggest Grammy of the night, but she pulled it off, I think my jaw dropped for a good 10 seconds that night.
  1. Girl Crush-Little Big Town
Similar to Need You Now, I get the appeal, but I see it and feel a bit more. This song has no boundaries in its lyricism, normally I’d be creeped out by lyrics like this but the story behind them gives them a melancholy meaning I understand. Every dirty vivid piece of imagery works so well, I think the drum loop doesn’t work well for it, as it gives this drowning sorrow vibe, and it works well with the opening but after that I don’t like the production after that. The message is unique, most people think it is about a girl who is love with another girl, which is not even close to its message, in actuality she is in love with a man who is with another woman, and she wants to be like her, so he’d like her, definitely wacky but a message as unique as this should be praised. Now for overall impact, holy crap, people loved this song, it went on to be number one for over 12 weeks, one of the longest runs ever. It won several accolades for song of the year, thanks to Lori McKenna, if you want to win song of the year work with Lori McKenna, not an instant guarantee but it does help your odds.
  1. Drinkin’ Problem-Midland
The richness of this song is unmatched. 2017 in summary was a crappy year. The snap tracks took over Nashville, they were everywhere, and I mean everywhere, then I kid you not, one day I heard this and I thought, is this an old track then I read the date, as it released in 2017, I started hearing it more and more and I was blown away with this song, it’s not the deepest but it is clever in its own right. The production of most songs on this list don’t hold a candle to the god this song is in instrumentation. It’s lines like “people say I got a drinking problem, but I’ve got no problem drinking at all” just makes me grin. We would begin to see more songs with a similar sound, little by little, artists you wouldn’t believe started experimenting with this type of sound, it was a huge hit, casual fans loved it, semi-traditionalist people like me adored it while hardcore ones discredited it because of their background and authenticity even Trigger did it too. A song is a song, music is music, it doesn’t matter who it comes from, you’d rather someone who has nothing to do with the genre and take a crap all over it than this, I wouldn’t and you shouldn’t too.
  1. The House That Built Me-Miranda Lambert
There was a few Miranda Lambert songs I could’ve put, the critically acclaimed Tin Man, the smash hit Somethin’ Bad, but I’m sticking with the song that made me relate to her more than anything song in her catalog. There is something that is just so iconic about “Won’t Take Nothing But A Memory” Miranda Lambert is know for engaging with her audience is such a profound relatable way. Revisiting old memories have joy and heartbreak, we have to take both in, relive them, because we are what they are, they are what make us who we are. Every single tear of joy and sadness built us into who we are today, that is what this song is about, every message she sings is said with vivid imagery. Sometimes closure doesn’t come from revisiting them but we still need them regardless, it is her most well known and respected hit, and it time will age to become a standard like Your Cheatin’ Heart or I Walk The Line.
  1. God’s Country-Blake Shelton
Yep, its that good, it doesn’t deserve to be this good, also I find ironic this finds itself directly above a Miranda Lambert song. The House That Built Me is a better song overall but it fails to match the level of impact this had, everyone and I mean everyone knew this song, this brought so many fans back to Blake Shelton who honestly was a bit of a hit or miss these past few years but what, a, comeback. This has so much raw power, after my first listen I knew this would be a hit. This was his first number one hit on hot country songs since 2013, 6 YEARS. It deserved all the praise and more. God’s Country is nothing short of bad ass. Everything about its just has new life. From its gothic production to the lyrics. I’ve never seen a song blow up so fast (well a good one) Cruise took a while to rise but right out of the gate this rose to the top. Performed live, this song is legendary. If this song had fiddle like its live version I would drop dead as goosebumps would’ve overwhelmed my body.
The top 5 are songs everyone knows, whether they listen to country music or not, these are songs every one knows.
But before we move on I’d like to give a few honorable captions for what song did what best.
· Best Instrumentation-Wagon Wheel-Darius Rucker
· Best Vocal Performance-Tennessee Whiskey-Chris Stapleton
· Best Lyrics-Girl Goin’ Nowhere-Ashley McBryde
· Best Overall Impact-Cruise-Florida Georgia Line
  1. Wagon Wheel-Darius Rucker
The melody of this has been sung by so many, it’s a song so many people, the second I hear those guitar chords followed by fiddle I know I am in for a good time, Darius Rucker knocks this cover and capitalizing on everything Old Crow Medicine Band didn’t. Everything just works so well with it. My only real complaint is that I have no Idea what these lyrics are about at all, the story never really made sense to me, but at the end of the day who cares, this issue pales in comparison to everything this song offers. This was the light at the end of the tunnel in 2013, while I did enjoy Cruise, no song in 2013 compared to what this song was and still is, a party song that cherishes everything country music stands for, beautiful instrumentation, compelling stories and simple melodies. I adore it, chances are you do to, whether you think it out-beats the original or not.
  1. If I Die Young-The Band Perry
The closer we get to number one it gets so hard. It brings this folk like sound and storytelling to the table and it blows you away. I think vocally it could use a little flare, but out of all the songs on this list I think it uses fiddle the best. I think the harmonization of the band is overall excellent. It flows story wise as the life of this person progresses so smoothly, I especially like the lyric “funny when you’re dead people start listening” that just feels so true. And lets talk about success, I’d argue this was bigger than Need You Now, this is the only song to reach 7 million sales without the help of a rap artists in the 2010’s, so calling this song a hit is an understatement. This song set the bar in 2010 for critical achievement and only a handful over the years have been able to reach it let alone surpass it.
  1. Cruise-Florida Georgia Line
If we chose a song to define the 2010’s, there is no song, more obvious, more excruciating painful. But when this song came out it was a jam, it still is, before all these songs about getting girls in trucks with the stupidest pickup lines this was a narrative honestly everyone was fine with, if bro country was something only FGL did, a whole lot more people would be fine with them doing their thing, because with all of the hate, they do, I’ll just say it, Florida Georgia Line are country artists, just not the best ones. I think they make country music, just not the best country music. Cruise as a song without any outside factors is a smash that works on so many levels, it is the most successful country song of all time, does it deserve it, yes, yes it does. Talk about a song you couldn’t get away from, you wanna see impact, this song started a movement that held on to Nashville for over 5 years and Cruise inspired the next movement to come along and grip Nashville. I’ve never seen a song do something like this, the reason it isn’t number one, is because I don’t view this as a number one song of the decade, hell I wouldn’t even put it in the top 10 for the song itself. But the impact this song had was undeniable, whether you hate them or not, its success is deserved.
  1. Tennessee Whiskey-Chris Stapleton
The 2015 CMA awards had one of the most legendary performances in country music history, yeah its worth calling it legendary, when Chris Stapleton took the stage with Pop Superstar Justin Timberlake bringing back the roots of country music. Tennessee Whiskey not only is a fantastic song, it is the reason the neo-traditional movement kickstarted, it is the reason artists like Jon Pardi, Luke Combs, and Midland are who they are, this saw the return to quality in country music, it brought the soul of it back when the genre was at its darkest. Chris Stapleton has such a raw vocal power unmatched by anyone not even Luke Combs comes close to Stapleton. Lyrically it is so good with its wordplay, it’s a cover of a classic of course the lyrics will be good. The instrumentation feels so bluesy, like I’m in a bar or a pub (I’ve never been in one so what do I know) Everything about has so much atmosphere, from the guitar solos to the vocal runs Stapleton does throughout the song. This is currently the most viewed country song of all time on YouTube, one of the most streamed songs on Spotify and it belongs to the most successful country album of the decade. Tennessee Whiskey while a cover is reinvented to fit Stapleton’s style of music, and the fact that he did this song his way and not David Allan Coe’s just adds another layer to the countless layers of praise this song has received.
And now number one, the best hit country song of the 2010’s:
  1. Old Town Road-Lil Nas X
OBVIOUSLY, like what other song could be number one, the trap beat is better than any real percussion, the lyrics are better than Girl Goin’ Nowhere who am I kidding, you know it is the best country song of the 2010’s, maybe even all time, come on I’m right.
Okay I can’t do this joke anymore lets get to the real number one:
  1. Springsteen-Eric Church
Okay with all jokes aside, this is not only the most unique and impactful, it is arguably the most relatable song on this list. A song I think everyone here has listened to at least once. Some of you think I’m biased as a lot of my lists have The Chief at number one, and if was in your shoes I’d be a little irritated too. But Eric Church deserves every ounce of praise he receives. This song is able to bring so many people back to a time, a time of happiness, a time of heartbreak, to revisit memories not by normal means by remembering the times with a person you cared about through the music you loved. The music you two shared. Lyrics don’t get as iconic as “funny how a melody sounds like a memory” Not only was it the biggest hit of his career it was one of the biggest of the decade, back then in 2011 Eric’s sound was revolutionary, forget Florida Georgia Line, Eric Church changed country music entirely after the release of Chief, I’d argue Cruise exists because of Chief. Eric’s vocal delivery has hope and yet somberness. The piano and guitars bring this wave of nostalgia because we all have a person we care about but now were not with them, or we were never with them at all, friends have shown me what this song meant to them and all their interpretations share the single thread of adoration of music, music is escapism, to relive glory days, to relive heartbreak, every song does that, even the bad ones, that’s what this song is about. To celebrate what music has done for us and pay it forward.

2020.04.06 04:25 sunzusunzusunzusunzu Arrest Affidavit: Consciousness of guilt, Tiguan data, Letecia's stories, Quincy Brown, Douglas County, fake polygraph

Letecia Stauch’s consciousness of guilt
  1. During the first 24-48 hours surrounding the disappearance of a child, it is reasonable that an assumingly innocent parent or stepparent would be contributing to search efforts, and fully participating in the effort to recover the child.
  2. 1n the 24-48 hours surrounding Gannon’s disappearance, Letecia rented a vehicle, turned her cell phone off for approximately four hours on the evening of January 28, 2020, washed her Tiguan immediately prior to coming to the EPSO for an interview, evaded law enforcement's attempts to conduct an in depth interview, and did not participate in the search for Gannon.
  3. On Tuesday January 28, 2020, between 0848 and 0854, Letecia instructed Hatley to "Pull your car in the garage" via text message, presumably to temporarily cover up any potential evidence left behind. To be clear, Harley has her own vehicle that was mentioned above in paragraph 13, specifically a Volkswagen Jetta.
  4. On January 28, 2020, at approximately 1604-1617hrs, investigators asked Letecia for Gannon's tooth brush to recover his DNA. At or about l619hrs, Letecia did a search in her internet browser of "they are asking for our sons tooth brush but said nothing is wrong". At or about 1631- 1633hrs, Letecia has a text conversation with Mr. Stauch.
Letecia: “Something isn't right I think they are hiding something"
Mr. Stauch: "'Who", ''the police?”
Letecia: "Yes", "They asked for tooth brushes"
Mr. Stauch: ''hmm", "what do u think they're hiding?"
  1. Also on January 28, 2020 at or about 2245 hrs, Letecia made a statement to investigators via text message. At the time of this statement Gannon had been missing for approximately 27 hours, and Letecia believed she was a subject in his disappearance without any prior prompting from law enforcement, or notification of such:
Letecia: ''What do you want from me? Because 1 have nothing. One of your very own leaked to me what you guys were doing. 1 did nothing and/or am being set up. I’ not really even sure other that being told that by another blue with El Paso. I was told I couldn't go home to sleep and on top of that men were sent to a home with a minor female and she was forced to stay there not to even leave for food. Every conversation that said even at this moment I can hear inside. What do you want from me?"
Detective Bethel: "Come in to talk to me. I would just like information to find Gannon"
  1. After EPSO investigators seized Letecia's Volkswagen Tiguan on January 29, 2020, she obtained a 2020 Nissan Altima. Investigators applied for, and were granted a search warrant by this court to install a GPS tracker on the vehicle. Investigators monitored this tracking device, which provided particularly useful information on January 31, 2020. A map with some of this data is included below. This information will be discussed below, and relates to the area north of Palmer Lake and along Hwy 105/S Perry Park Rd in Douglas County, Colorado.
  2. In summary, investigators believe Letecia utilized the rented Nissan Altima to return to the area in which she disposed of Gannon's body. Indeed, investigators recovered a piece of particle board from this area with Gannon's blood on it. This information will be discussed below in more detail.
[Photo: January 31, 2020 GPS tracker data in the area north of Palmer Lake, Colorado]
  1. The fact Letecia came back to this area on January 31, 2020 is significant, and investigators have not recovered any evidence that Letecia has family or friends that live in that area, or any legitimate reason for her presence in that area other than to dispose of incriminating evidence.
  2. 1 submit a reasonable theory for the fact Letecia returned to this area, based on the information presented in this affidavit as follows. Letecia disposed of Gannon's remains at nighttime, and likely was nervous about the location she chose, and may not have even remembered exactly where she dumped Gannon 's remains. Investigators believe that on January 31, 2020, she went back to the area to view the area while sunlight was available; to ensure no evidence was viewable from the road, to ensure his remains were adequately covered to prevent detection, and to see if any law enforcement was in the area.
The exploitation of the Volkswagen Tiguan data
  1. Investigators were able to remove a computer chip from Letecia's Volkswagen Tiguan, which was examined by the FBI. The FBI was able to recover data (hereinafter "raw data"), which included, but is not limited to, the estimated location of the vehicle specifically related to the evening of January 28, 2020, and the morning of January 29, 2020.
  2. The raw data has not been scientifically evaluated, and the raw data that was provided was not portrayed to be an exact representation of the vehicle's activities. Additionally, I have been told that the raw data has particular limitations, including the inability to show the exact location of the vehicle. For example, if the Tiguan was taken off road, the raw data may not show that, and display the estimated location on the nearest road. Furthermore, the estimated location may have some degree of fluctuation in accuracy, estimated to be approximately 50-l00 meters.
  3. FBI Agents, including Special Agent (SA) Donati took steps to verify and corroborate the data recovered from the Tiguan. In summary, SA Donati was able to tab some of the raw data, including location and time stamp, and compare it to other evidence. As with other forensic evidence discussed in this affidavit, investigators believe it to be reliable.
  4. For example, the Tiguan raw data placed the Tiguan leaving the Colorado Springs Airport just after 1900hrs on January 28, 2020. This information matched the timestamp of the January 28, 2020 Colorado Springs Airport parking receipt to the Tiguan data. The Tiguan raw data indicated the Tiguan stopped near a King Soopers' parking lot for approximately 10 minutes after leaving the Airport, between 2008hrs to 2018hrs. SA Donati was able to review video surveillance footage from that King Soopers which indeed showed a dark SUV matching the description of the Tiguan sitting in the parking lot during that same time period. Other footage, including video footage from a Wendy's restaurant in a separate location, helped to further corroborate the raw data.
  5. Of significant importance, the raw data showed the Tiguan in the area of Hwy 105/S Perry Park Rd between 2115hrs and 2130hrs on January 28. 2020, and I have included a map depicting that data. The raw data also indicated the Tiguan stopped for approximately five minutes, in an area proximate to the recovery of Gannon blood on February 15, 2020. This is the same area Letecia likely drove to in her Nissan Altima rental vehicle on January 31, 2020. The recovery of Gannon's blood in this area is discussed below.
[Photo: Tiguan raw data depicting its activities on Hwy 105/S Perry Park Rd on 1/28/2020)
  1. Investigators were also able to compare Letecia's historical cell site information, including NELOS data, against the Tiguan raw data, and found no reason to believe that Letecia was not the driver of the Tiguan on January 28, 2020.
The continued evolution of Letecia’s stories
  1. Investigators conducted several consensually monitored telephone calls with Mr. Stauch. Specifically, Mr. Stauch, at the direction of law enforcement, communicated with Letecia via telephone and email. These communications have been recorded and memorialized, and consisted of hours of recorded conversation. I will not provide a transcription of these calls, but will summarize the importance of particular changes in Letecia's story, and will also include exculpatory information related to Letecia's statements. Letecia never admitted to killing Gannon.
  2. For the purposes of refreshing the court, here is a summary of some of Letecia's statements whether to law enforcement, directly through the media, and/or to Mr. Stauch in recorded email and voice communications.
On January 27, 2020 Letecia stated: Gannon left to play at a friend’s house and did not come home at 1800hrs like he was supposed to January 29, 2020 Letecia states: she was held at gunpoint, raped, and Gannon was abducted by her rapist.
  1. Within Letecia's falsehoods, there are details corroborated by physical evidence that would be near impossible to know without being intimately involved in the murder. Letecia has made statements to explain blood on the walls in Gannon’s bedroom, blood on the rear bumper of the Tiguan, and blood in the garage of the Stauch residence. Details of the location of blood evidence has not been released to the media nor to Letecia and has been closely held throughout this investigation. Furthermore, Letecia has continued to provide alibis for her physical locations not previously disclosed to investigators. Her statements continue to evolve in a dramatic way, and all are remarkably different from the original report to EPSO.
  2. The majority of the conversations between Letecia and Albert Stauch begin around February 13, 2020. Over several days, Letecia’s story continued to change. During a phone call on February 13, 2020, Letecia stated that Gannon was burned by a candle to the point that his skin bubbled, and that Gannon peeled the burns off and wiped blood on his bedroom wall. Mr. Stauch did not ask about blood on the walls of his room during this call. The fact she provided information about blood on the wall likely indicates her knowledge of the murder scene.
  3. On February 14, 2020, Letecia had an additional conversation with Mr. Stauch, and provided four additional versions of Gannon's disappearance.
Story #1: When EPSO came to the house on January 27, 2020, the abductor was still in her residence, and that she tried to signal to EPSO Deputies that there was somebody in the residence. lt should be noted that EPSO Deputies checked the entirety of the house and no additional person was located during that search.
Story #2: She was raped by Quincy Brown at her residence, and Brown abducted Gannon. She knew Brown's identity because she saw a paper and his identification card fall out of his pocket that had his name on it. Letecia sent a photograph of Quincy Brown to Mr. Stauch via text message (it is noted this photograph mirrored images online wherein Quincy Brown was listed as a Most Wanted suspect, discussed below).
Story #3: Quincy Brown followed her from Petco, and at some point, was laying in the middle of the road in front of her car. When Letecia stopped to avoid running the man over, he jumped into her car and made her take him home, then raped her.
Story # 4: Letecia and Gannon were near County Line Rd/Hwy 105 in northern El Paso County on January 27. 2020. Gannon was riding a bicycle in that area and fell off, hit his head, and was then abducted by Quincy Brown. In this version of events Quincy Brown was driven by a man named Terence.
  1. The February 14, 2020 Story #4 has several interesting considerations. During the period of February 12 - 14, 2020, it was public knowledge by virtue of media coverage that investigators were searching for Gannon in the area of Hwy 105/S Perry Park Rd in southern Douglas County near the El Paso County line. Letecia brought this location up on her own, without prompt during a conversation, and provided an alibi for why she was in that area. Letecia was adamant that investigator’s efforts to search for Gannon in that area would be futile. This area turned out to be significant based on the Tiguan’s location on January 28, 2020, and that Gannon’s blood was found in this area, discussed below in more detail.
  2. Furthermore, as mentioned above, Letecia drove through this same area in her Nissan Altima rental vehicle on January 31, 2020.
165.1 submit that based on raw data retrieved from the Tiguan, Letecia was likely in the area of Hwy 105/S Perry Park Road on the evening of January 28, 2020, and Gannon's remains were dumped in the vicinity of that area. Letecia's story 1ays the foundation for a reason why investigators may locatc Gannon's body with head trauma.
  1. On February 15, 2020, Letecia provided additional conflicting stories to Mr. Stauch, including that the story she told Albert Stauch about Gannon falling off the bike was a lie, because it was what she believed he wanted to hear.
  2. Letecia stated the blood in the corner of Gannon’s room was a combination of her and Gannon's. In this explanation, she stated that the abductor anally penetrated both her and Gannon with an object. Additionally, she was tied up at some point in tbe abduction, and the abductor was still present during the EPSO visit that night.
Quincy Brown
  1. Quincy Brown, age 37, was listed on El Paso County’s Most Wanted list on February 12, 2020. 1 was able to locate Brown's photo on KKTV News website, where they describe Brown as a black male (it is noted that during one of Letecia’s stories, she describes her rapist as a Hispanic male). The photo on this website appeared to be the same photo Letecia sent to Mr. Stauch. Brown has outstanding arrest warrants for failure to register as a sex offender, and failure to appear. These warrants appear to have been open since 2018.
  2. I was able to find a criminal history for Quincy Brown, date of birth 10/21/1981, which included, but was not limited to, a 2001 arrest for lst Degree kidnapping in El Paso County Court Case 2001CR4383, which was pled to Felony Menacing. Investigators have uncovered no evidence to support that Quincy Brown was involved in Gannon's disappearance.
Gannon's blood is located in Douglas County, Colorado on February 15 2020
  1. As mentioned above, investigators began to focus a search effort for Gannon's remains in the area of Hwy 105/S Perry Park Rd in Douglas County, Colorado on February 12, 2020. There is not an exact address to reference due to the rural nature of the area. This particular location was deemed important based on raw data from the Tiguan on January 28, 2020, and the location data from her rental vehicle on January 31, 2020.
  2. On February 15, 2020, searchers located a piece of particleboard during that search. The particleboard had a stain that appeared to be consistent with blood, and is pictured below. l have added a red circle to indicate the location of the blood stain. The particleboard was collected by the FBl Evidence Response Team, and transported to the Metro Crime Lab, also on February 15, 2020. An initial test revealed a positive presumptive result for the presence of human or high primate blood. Further testing was conducted, and a DNA profile was developed and compared to Gannon's on February 16, 2020. That profile matched the DNA profile of Gannon Stauch, and is documented in Metro Crime Laboratory Report 20MCL00267.
[Photo: Particleboard located In the area of 105/South Perry Park Rd]
  1. The reasonable explanation for the discovery of this particleboard with Gannon’s blood on it, is that Letecia used this particle board during the disposal of Gannon’s remains.
  2. The area in which the particleboard was found is rural, and the ground was covered by approximately six to twelve inches of snow. Additionally, as the area is rural in nature it is likely populated by wildlife including predators such as bear, coyotes, and mountain lions. Gannon's remains have not been located, and while investigators will continue to search the area, it is possible those remains have since been scattered since January 28, 2020.
  3. The below map depicts the area where the particleboard was recovered, compared with raw data from the Tiguan's location (while idling for approximately five minutes) on January 28, 2020, and the GPS tracker data from the Nissan Altima on January 31, 2020. As noted above, the raw data of the Tiguan has an estimated 50-100 meter variance.
[Photo: Approximate location of particleboard vs. Tiguan and Altima approximate tracking dala]
  1. [REDACTED] Additionally. investigators were granted a pen and system (GPS) pings, and cell site sector information. Investigators monitored Letecia’s telephone, and recorded hours of communication between Stauch and others. Each and every communication intercepted is not included within this affidavit.
  2. As during other portions of the investigation, Letecia continued to provide different stories to different people about Gannon's disappearance. Letecia provided false information to her sister, and other family members. [REDACTED] during which Letecia provided multiple different stories for what happened to Gannon. Several of these stories were discussed above.
  3. On a February 16, 2020 call at or about 1928hrs, Letecia told a female, believed to be Teela Cummings, that she has been giving Al numerous false stories because she knows he will not believe anything she says.
  4. On a February 17, 2020 call at or about 1353hrs, Letecia told a female, believed to be associated with Laura Abernathy, that she was thinking about flying out to Colorado to take a lie detector test to prove her innocence. During that call, she stated, "They think. I’m still in Colorado".
  5. On another February 17, 2020 call at or about 1611hrs, Letecia told an unknown female that she is going to take a lie detector test, but that the test is not admissible in court, and no law enforcement would be present
Letecia attempted to obtain "fake polygraph" results
  1. On a February 18, 2020 call at or about 1014hrs, Letecia called 321-247-6876. I conducted research on that phone number, and learned it was associated with "fakcpolygraph.com”. During that call, Letecia stated she never got a confirmation for a test she paid for. Letecia provided the spelling of her name, and before disconnecting the call, the unknown male stated he would resend her the results to her email.
  2. I viewed the website "fakepolygraph.com", and found the following infonnation: [Screenshot taken on 02/19/2020 from http://www/fakepolygraph.com]
  3. Also on February 18, 2020, at or about 11l6hrs, Letecia again called 321-247-6876. During this call, Letecia inquired about an email she received. The unknown male stated that her report was blocked by management based on the content of the questions, and stated that with any illegal activities they reserve the right to not send the report. Letecia’s response was the following:
Letecia: "What do you do now, just delete it and go on about life and keep the money?'"
Male at FakePolyGraph.eom: "Yes. we do indeed"
Letecia: ''Ok, 1 gotcha. thank you, goodbye"
  1. Investigators contacted Luke Devlin utilizing the phone number 321-247-6876 that Letecia called. Mr. Devlin provided information to investigators, including the questions and answers that Letecia had provided.
L84. Letecia provided the following questions and the answers that were supposed to be truthful to "fakepolygraph.com"
a. Do you intend to answer these questions regarding your stepson truthfully? YES
b. Is your birthday August 4, 1983? YES
c. Did you participate in any way in causing harm to your stepson? NO
d. Did your stepson return with you to your home? YES
e. Did you participate in any way in causing the death of your stepson NO
  1. I submit to the court that if Letecia had nothing to hide, she would not have to pay for fake polygraph results.
Conclusion
  1. Based on data collected by the FBI, and reported in the Journal of Forensic Sciences, I learned that in over 71% of homicide cases that involve false reporting, the reporting party is responsible for the murder. To be clear, this statistic is not being provided as sole probable cause for the requested warrant, but as an additional fact to be combined with others listed in this affidavit.
  2. Based on Letecia's internet history, it is reasonable to believe that she was unhappily married to Mr. Stauch, and had some degree of resentment towards the family as a stepparent. Furthermore, days before Gannon's murder, Letecia appeared to be researching a move to another state to a two-bedroom apartment.
  3. Letecia has not provided a fully truthful statement to investigators at any point during this investigation, particularly regarding the circumstances of Gannon’s disappearance. This would reasonably be suspected activity of an individual that commited the crime under investigation, namely murder. Within approximately 24 hours of Gannon being reported missing, and without external prompt, Letecia made claims to law enforcement that she was being set up.
  4. Initially, Letecia said Gannon was playing with a neighborhood friend between approximately 1515hrs and 1600hrs, and was expected home at 1800hrs. Within a few days, Letecia changed her story to label herself as a victim of rape, felony menacing with a weapon, and assault, resulting in Gannon's abduction by her rapist. Her stories continued to evolve to include a new location of Gannon's disappearance over 30 miles away, several completely different sets of circumstances. and unprompted explanations for why Gannon's blood would be found by investigators in key locations.
  5. Letecia was unable to provide a logical reason why she rented another vehicle while she still had access to the Tiguan. Based on the aforementioned facts, it was likely because it contained the remains of, or evidence of Gannon's remains, based on positive reactions to luminol in the Tiguan on the bumper. indicating the likely presence of blood on the rear tailgate. A suspected blood sample from the interior of the trunk area returned a negative result for the presumptive presence of blood.
191.Gannon's mattress has a large red stain on it that is consistent with blood. Based on the orientation of the mattress in the room, it appears that is where Gannon's head and upper torso would have been. Below that same area, a substance that was confirmed as blood by the Metro Crime Laboratory soaked through the carpet, the pad, and stained the concrete. This blood matches the DNA profile for Gannon Stauch. In this same area, blood samples taken from the wall, namely an electrical outlet, were also confused to match Gannon's DNA profile.
  1. Gannon's blood, again matched to his DNA profile, was also found on a piece of particleboard in the area of Hwy 105/S Perry Park Rd in Douglas County. Colorado. This particular area is consistent with Letecia's travels on January 28, 2020, and January 31, 2020 based on GPS tracker locations of her Nissan Altima rental vehicle, and raw data from the Tiguan.
  2. During her stories to Mr. Stauch, without prompt, Letecia provided explanations for why blood would be found on Gannon’s bedroom wall. Other than Letecia being present for Gannon's murder, and being present for the cleaning of the murder scene, there is no reasonable explanation for how Letecia would know there was blood on Gannon's wall, as that evidence had not been released to the media. Again, without prompt, Letecia provided an alibi for why she was in the area where the particleboard was recovered.
  3. By combining cell tower data, reviewing video surveillance, and home security system logs, investigators believe based on the evidence the only three individuals with access to Gannon on the afternoon of January 27, 2020 were Letecia, Harley, and eight-year-old Laina. With the exception of Laina, who is not considered a suspect, it appears nobody other than Letecia was with Gannon at the Stauch residence between the hours of approximately 1416 and 1734hrs on January 27. 2020, when investigators suspect Letecia murdered Gannon.
  4. Gannon has been missing for approximately four weeks, and there has been national news attention on major networks related to his disappearance. Local efforts, including posters, news coverage, search teams, and social media postings have also failed to locate Gannon. Aerial assets, infrared/FLIR technology, and other extra ordinary methods have been deployed to help locate Gannon.
  5. Over 200 volunteers have helped to search for Gannon, comprising thousands of man-hours in several different locations. Additionally, although the EPSO has received hundreds of tips, nobody has provided information that has led to Gannon’s location. His family and friends have not heard from him, and Gannon is only 11 years old with no financial resources.
  6. Letecia Stauch was the last person to see Gannon alive. Investigators have not located Fannon’s remains at this point in time, although the search continues. As Additional time increases without locating Gannon, the more likely it is that Gannon is not alive.
  7. Based on the facts set forth above, I submit probable cause exists to believe that, on or about January 27th, 2020 within the state of Colorado, and within El Paso County, Letecia Stauch committed the offenses, in violation of Colorado Revised Statutes to Include: Murder in the First Degree - Child Under Twelve - Position of Trust, Child Abuse Resulting in Death, Tampering with a Deceased Human Body, and Tampering with Physical Evidence.
  8. Therefore, your Affiant respectfully requests the issuance of an arrest warrant charging the same.

I am a long time wrestling fan, dating back to the days of the blindfold match between The Model Rick Martel and Jake The Snake Roberts. I remember totally believing that Sgt. Slaughter, a long time US soldier of some type, defected to Iraq in order to win the World Heavyweight Championship. I thought treason was a heavy price to pay, but the Sgt. would have to answer to the man the in mirror one day. Then and only then would he be judged for his crimes. That or Hulk Hogan wins the next match and we forget all of this business.
Recently this new company AEW emerged and has rekindled my love for the sport. It's fun, brazen, unapologetic, sincere, and firmly tongue in cheek from start to end. Frankly the world is just a lot more colorful when we allow for massive corporately funded evil orders, hired steam punk roughians, and Amazonian warriors from outer space. They've even got Luke Perry's hunky son as a boy from the jungle, or Jungle Boy if you will.
Sadly, I have only my brother and one other buddy who are into the show. So this is a call to arms. Are you out there? Would you like to hang out for the next ppv? Do you know a bar where they show AEW events? Let's organize a thing and go there!
Oh, and don't let me leave out the uninitiated of you. Maybe you just want to hang out with people who don't take themselves too seriously. Friends will emerge. Events will be attended. Beers will be toasted. And for those who partake, 420 all day everyday.
So let's do this. HMU

2020.02.20 10:39 g70460us Wendy williams hate pasta

Just to refresh your memories:
• ⁠She publicized the private healthcare information of Method Man's wife, broadcasting that she had cancer and that Method Man was having an affair with his wife's physician. (which was a lie).
• ⁠She's the one that spread the rumours that Tupac was raped in jail and had one testicle
• ⁠She's proudly claimed that she doesn't let her teenage son close his bedroom door, ever. And that when her son walked in on her giving a blowjob to her husband, it was her son's fault for not walking loud enough to notify her ahead of time, and when he walked in, she just continued like there was nothing wrong there.
• ⁠After Kesha was ruled by a judge to complete her recording contract after alleging Dr. Luke sexually assaulted her, Wendy Williams said she questioned the validity of Kesha’s accusations because “she’s like, 30 years old or something” and because she didn’t have recorded proof of abuse. That’s right — Williams basically told the world that sexual assault isn’t sexual assault unless you have it on video. “When the sexual abuse — alleged sexual abuse — started, why weren’t they rolling camera on it?” she asked. “I mean, it’s so easy. Like, men are so stupid that if you’re sexually abusing us it’s so easy to catch you.”
• ⁠She got into it with Alyssa Milano on her show. Milano frequently posts photos of herself breastfeeding on social media, and has been outspoken about allowing mothers to breastfeed in public. Wendy Williams said to Alyssa Milano on her show: “I don’t need to see that. Because I just don’t want to” , and said that, for her, breasts are “more sexual than a feeding thing,” adding, “I don’t know why I feel this way. …Breastfeeding is only a particular amount of time. The rest of your life, your breasts are sexual things.”
• ⁠About Ariana Grande, Wendy Williams once stated that she could never “think of [Ariana] Grande as a woman” because she looked too young. Williams went on to say that Grande would “forever look 12.” Most of the time, if someone tells a woman that they appear younger than they are, it’s taken as a compliment, but Williams made clear that she did not intend to flatter Grande in any way. “And I don’t mean that in a good way. It’s nice to look younger than you are, but when you look too young and then you’re short… she’s only like 4’11,”
• ⁠About Nicole Scherzinger breaking up with Lewis Hamilton, she said it was sad to see Scherzinger spend “seven years of her life breaking up and getting back together.” Specifically, Williams noted Scherzinger’s age — she was 37 at the time — and very bluntly added, “They [men] can have babies whenever they want. You know what I mean? Those are seven years you can never get back.”
• ⁠About Jennifer Lawrence's nude photo's from The Fappening, she told Vanity Fair, “Jennifer Lawrence, you know what? Don’t sweat this young lady,” Williams started. “I mean, you’re the one who took the pictures… You don’t look bad under your clothes, and I think the [hack] has actually made your career even hotter.”
• ⁠About Paris Jackson saying she considers herself Black b/c that's what her father told her, and told her to be proud of her heritage, regardless of what she looked like. Williams mocked the teenager’s statement, since Paris, whose mother, Debbie Rowe, is Caucasian, appears to have light skin. “By the way, she considers herself black, period. She’s not going to address this again. She was raised black. Her father would constantly remind her of what it means to be black and proud and so don’t ask her again,” William recapped. "I get that she considers herself black and everything, but I'm just talking about the visual because you know … black is not what you call yourself, it’s what the cops see you when they got steel to your neck on the turnpike. It’s what they see.” She added, “But that’s cute, and good for her.”
• ⁠About Selena Gomez and The Weeknd dating: "First of all, they were spotted kissing outside of a restaurant in L.A... the restaurant they were at... it’s where you go when you want to be photographed. They just stand there all day with their cameras waiting to photograph somebody. Selena, you just got out of rehab for the umpteenth time. The Weeknd has admitted to being a substance abuser…If you’re trying to stay sober, and you’ve got Lupus and you’re trying to be well and take care of yourself... the only reason why I could see that you would be with The Weeknd is because maybe he’s writing music for you. Maybe you want to seem cool, or edgy."
• ⁠She tried to get Lil Wayne's music banned from the radio b/c she didn't like it.
• ⁠She went ahead and made that Lifetime movie about Aaliyah without the permission of her producers at the time, Timbaland and Missy Elliott, and without the permission of Aaliyah's family, stating: "The family doesn't want the story to be told but we're doing it anyway. It's not told in a seedy tasteless way," Williams said. Also, she stated "In my opinion, we did a great job telling the story that the family was scared to put out there," Williams said of the final project. Like Timbaland, many fans of the singer have expressed their disappointment with the film on social media, accusing Lifetime of romanticizing Aaliyah's relationship with R. Kelly, whom she illegally married when she was 15 and Kelly was 27.
• ⁠She invited Whitney Houston for a radio interview, then point blank asked her if she was currently smoking crack.
• ⁠She's publicly called Tyrese, Usher, LL Cool J, and Tyler Perry gay, without any proof.
• ⁠She's said that Beyonce "sounds like she has a fifth grade education"

Masq is a healing initiative that aims to evolve our relationships with masculinity, thru open-conversation.

This installment of Masq is going to be largely focused on how we, as masculine-identifying individuals, can utilize our power and privilege in our intimate realities to do our part in dismantling our patriarchy. This discussion can be broken into 2 parts, intervention in ways that are obvious (external), & intervening in ways that are less obvious (internal). Anjan Alavandar (they/them) is the founder of Masq. Anjan is an American born South-Indian community organizer who was raised in North Carolina. Anjan has been exploring the confines of masculinity from a young age.

Community Create-A-Thon: Census 2020, 2/21

No one knows your community better than you. So, whether you want to design a sticker, draw a poster, write a poem, sing a song, or choreograph a dance, Lincoln Center teaching artists will be on hand to help you shape your ideas. Come collaborate on fun and accessible art projects to help reach the people in your life and share the importance of the census.
Lincoln Center, in partnership with Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer and the U.S. Census Bureau, wants to ensure that our communities get their fair share, especially people in historically under-counted groups. These include people of color, immigrants, LGBTQIA people, people experiencing homelessness, people with low incomes, renters, single-parent households, people with limited English proficiency, and children under the age of five.
Why the Census Matters The Census, a once-a-decade population count, affects your representation in government, and determines how much funding your community receives. When a person isn’t counted, they lose out on nearly $2,000 every year for TEN YEARS in direct services like SNAP, WIC, hospitals, schools, transportation, and road maintenance.

I would like to give an honarary mention to the NYCT holiday transit show, which is ending soon. It is easy-access (in Grand Central), interesting, and super low-key. You can just pop in and stay however long you like.
Shameless self promotion: you can search through my collected events here. The search feature is very simple, but tune in next week when I will have better filtering methods. Also, some of the public art are a little wonky.

Masq Cycle 001 Circle 4: Masc-Allyship, 2/20

Masq is a healing initiative that aims to evolve our relationships with masculinity, thru open-conversation. We strive to destroy the toxic elements that exist within the identity, and embrace its existence beyond it’s cis-expression. This installment of Masq is going to be largely focused on how we, as masculine-identifying individuals, can utilize our power and privilege in our intimate realities to do our part in dismantling our patriarchy. This discussion can be broken into 2 parts, intervention in ways that are obvious (external), & intervening in ways that are less obvious (internal). Anjan Alavandar (they/them) is the founder of Masq. Anjan is an American born South-Indian community organizer who was raised in North Carolina. Anjan has been exploring the confines of masculinity from a young age. They work with All Kings, a new organization that is establishing a healing-based re-entry program for recently incarcerated men in Harlem and Brooklyn, NY.

Community Create-A-Thon: Census 2020, 2/21

No one knows your community better than you. So, whether you want to design a sticker, draw a poster, write a poem, sing a song, or choreograph a dance, Lincoln Center teaching artists will be on hand to help you shape your ideas. Come collaborate on fun and accessible art projects to help reach the people in your life and share the importance of the census.
Lincoln Center, in partnership with Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer and the U.S. Census Bureau, wants to ensure that our communities get their fair share, especially people in historically under-counted groups. These include people of color, immigrants, LGBTQIA people, people experiencing homelessness, people with low incomes, renters, single-parent households, people with limited English proficiency, and children under the age of five.
Why the Census Matters The Census, a once-a-decade population count, affects your representation in government, and determines how much funding your community receives. When a person isn’t counted, they lose out on nearly $2,000 every year for TEN YEARS in direct services like SNAP, WIC, hospitals, schools, transportation, and road maintenance.

I would like to give an honarary mention to the NYCT holiday transit show, which is ending soon. It is easy-access (in Grand Central), interesting, and super low-key. You can just pop in and stay however long you like.
Shameless self promotion: you can search through my collected events here. The search feature is very simple, but tune in next week when I will have better filtering methods. Also, some of the public art are a little wonky.

I have a Google spreadsheet with all of the information here (minus the icons) plus a little bit more. You can find the spreadsheet here

When does this start?

The tournament is going to start June 2nd! Each round will be streamed live on Twitch every Tuesday around 8PM EST until a champion is declared (or until it gets too late and the round will be paused until the next day). Screenshots will be taken throughout the round and compiled into a photo album that I will narrate and post on here the following Saturday. This start date will take this event all the way up until the week before the 2020 college football season!
 

Where the hell are the mods!?

After the last Battle Royale, a lot of people were asking me about releasing these team mods for everyone to play with. I just want to let you all know that I still plan on releasing them! I've had a very busy fall/winter and haven't had as much time as I thought to finalize all of the mods for release, but I am working through all of them slowly but surely to get them out to everybody. Who knew that 130 different mods would be so difficult? I'm not going to set any hard dates for release, but I am going to work as hard as I can to get all of the mods finalized and released leading up to the event. I'll probably release them one conference at a time as I get them finalized, and I'll be sure to make a post on here announcing when each one is released. I'm sorry it's taken so long, but they are coming out soon!
 

In closing

I had so much fun doing this last year with all of you and I can't wait to do it all again. I want this event to be something that everyone can enjoy and be a part of together, so all input and feedback is appreciated. I had said at the end of the event last year that I was going to do a post-game analysis for the event, but I never actually got around to making that post. So if you have anything that you can remember from the last event that you thought worked or didn't work, or if you just want to talk about your favorite moments, please feel free to let me know. I'll be back in a few weeks with updates, but until then...

Exhibition: In the Company of Harold Prince

No one did more to define the American musical today than Harold “Hal” Prince. His resume included some of the most important titles of the past century: West Side Story, Fiddler on the Roof, Cabaret, Company, Sweeney Todd, and The Phantom of the Opera. In the Company of Hal Prince will explore Prince’s reinvention of musical theatre from the script- and score-based model created by Rodgers and Hammerstein and George Abbott to a more visual, almost cinematic art form in which the director is auteur. Prince acknowledged that fruitful collaboration...

War on the Weekends: Hong Kong in a Year of Uprisings 2/12

Join Chino and Wren, recently returned from Hong Kong, for a discussion on the Hong Kong uprisings. The protests, misunderstood among the international left, express the deep-seated popular discontent with political authoritarianism and economic inequality–much like other recent global rebellions, but in a unique context. We will discuss the movement’s street tactics, broader political meaning and direction, strengths and potential limitations. Hong Kong organizers will join us over video for on-the-ground perspectives. Wren and Chino May are both members of Unity and Struggle, a small nationwide anti-state communist collective, and organize in the Bronx with Take Back the Bronx. They traveled to Hong Kong most recently in November 2019, to learn from family, friends and comrades taking part in the movement.
