2021.10.26 15:39 GravityKeepsMeDown Hunting for (mostly) acoustic songs centered on Rain, Water, Youth, and Loss
I'm a stage director about to dive in on a new, amazing show for my university thesis!
As part of my prep work, I like to put together a playlist of songs for my designers to listen to in order to get a general vibe for the show. For this show, I'm struggling to flesh it out!
The show is set in a tiny town in depression-era Indiana, and centers on waterain, the innocence of childhood, and unspeakably tragic loss/death.
Acoustic songs tend to fit the feel I'm aiming for better, but I have a handful that aren't!
TYIA for your suggestions!

2021.10.26 15:39 tillymint24 Should I try and save a potentially toxic relationship?
I met sunshine at university during our master's degree. We both chose to study one of the hardest and longest routes to qualification in the UK. Sunshine was born in another country and grew up initially in a single parent household relatively hand to mouth. She moved to the UK when she was 6, her parent worked very hard and is now extremely well off, remarried and has another child. Sunshines step parent is lovely and they have a good relationship. However her family moved to America when sunshine started her first degree, she has a strange relationship with her mother who seems to compensate for this with money. My background is the picture perfect childhokd, very supportive and loving parents, financially I have never wanted for anything although I wouldn't class our family as rich.
Although sunshine grew up without much she is now very wealthy. We got on very very well at uni, we clicked and she was so much fun. Particularly important as our course was so intense and hard with extremely long hours. She's a little older than me and took some more time out working instead of studying so that she could follow her husband for his career. It was really important to me to qualify as fast as possible in order to get a better salary- I've always been upfront about this. Sunshine got engaged during our final year of our master's degree. She knew my plan was to do my diploma required to qualify fully asap after masters. She was planning her wedding and chose it on a date where I was booked into a residential weekend as part of the course. I couldn't qualify without attending this weekend of lectures. Her wedding venue was a 2.5 hour drive away and my lectures were 8-8 for 3 days. I was supposed to be her bridesmaid but I had to respectfully decline as I had already paid for the course when she announced the date. She was very upset and distant with me and asked if I would consider deferring my exams. I said no, this was something I had been working towards for 6.5 years and I was 1 year from finishing. I'd also already paid for the course and our salaries are crap until we qualify. I have a lot of student debt and wanted to progress. Sunshines entire wedding was extremely affluent, she had chosen bridesmaid dresses in excess of £300 each (which we were expected to pay for) a venue with a minimum 3 night stay at £280 per night. Plus hair make up hen do etc. I simply couldn't afford this as a student! This was the first issue in our relationship as I felt like she was slightly out of touch with reality and had turned a little bridezilla. Prior to this she had always been a little snobby but never to this extent. A few months after her wedding we did fall back into our normal routine and things seemed much better. However, over the last couple of years I feel like she has changed a lot whereas I'm still exactly the same person (personality wise). I had a rubbish time during covid 2020 with my employer and had to switch jobs as it had become untenable. A guy that sunshine used to work with was hired as my replacement. Sunshine has done nothing but bitch and complain about this guy for several years - I soon saw why when he joined my place of work as he was awful and I was scared for my clients as I didn't want to leave them in his hands but there was nothing I could do. Sunshine called me to chat and asked me how he was getting on. I then told her and ranted a little about how rubbish he was in terms of his attitude and she just completely 180d. she was saying I don't want any negativity I am close friends with this guy this makes me feel uncomfortable I don't know where you're coming from etc. I was so taken aback as she had brought this up and asked me. It turned into a bit of an argument over video call and I was very upset as I don't like confrontation or rowing. For me I felt like I didn't recognise the person she had become, we had always been supportive and compassionate to each other and she was so cold and detached. I distanced myself. Sunshine has recently turned to veganism, yoga etc which is absolutely fine, but she's become very very judgemental about anyone who doesn't subscribe to this. She has restricted herself from so many things even sugar and refusing to eat anything pre packaged! I do not subscribe to this lifestyle but I was very mindful to arrange lunch dates at places which would accommodate her etc. I felt like this was becoming a one way street and I was being judged and critised for just being myself- the person I have always been around her for years. My partner is a big meat eater, we love to entertain and go out for drinks, party etc when we can due to our stressful jobs but it became really difficult to include her in this. I really pulled back further during 2021 as I have been having bad health issues and was waiting for an operation this year. She only wanted to schedule calls on a Thursday after work and it was extremely awkward I felt such anxiety on Thursdays trying to come up with safe topics of conversation that it was so draining. Due to work commitments it became virtually impossible to stick to such a rigid call routine and since July we haven't spoken at all. I stopped replying as I felt like I had nothing 'safe' to say. I didn't feel like I could share my health worries with her as my best friend because she was so judgemental and cold when I tried to broach the subject.
I feel awful. My parents regularly bump into her as we live relatively close by and she never asks after me so perhaps she doesn't care anymore? I feel such a loss for the friendship that we once had. My other friends have said that the relationship was toxic and said that I was trying to change myself around her to fit her needs. I agree with this to an extent as I felt so drained, but perhaps toxic is a very big word and not appropriate? I can't bear the thought of us ghosting, but I'm also so nervous to contact her to try and patch things up as there hasn't been a specific incident recently. I just stopped replying as I felt like I was being hurt and I didn't have the emotional capacity to deal with things due to my health worries.
Her birthday is coming up in a few weeks. Should I send her flowers and perhaps write her a letter explaining my feelings? She is very, very extreme about covid so I doubt that she would want to meet me for coffee unless it was outdoors (we live in England it's too cold for me to do this at the moment while I'm healing from surgery)
Any advice would be so much appreciated and I'm sorry for how long this is!! There's a million more things I could say.
If this should be posted in a better suited forum please let me know! Thank you x

2021.10.26 15:39 yazmaz54 Surface pro 4/5 for data science student
Hi everyone, I’m looking into buying a reconditioned surface pro 4 or 5 2in1 hybrid computer. I would mostly be using it for jupyter notebooks, and maybe pycharm. Hence my post, can I have pycharm on the surface pro? (I read that it supports the 32bits version of pycharm). I want to get a 8gb ram 128/256 ssd 2.4hz processor. I was wondering if it’d work for the activities I described above. Can i have your opinion please? Thank you.

2021.10.26 15:39 PopRaven Raya and the Last Dragon undermines its own theme. Let's fix that.
The biggest criticism of Raya and the Last Dragon is that it poorly executed its theme of "trusting people is good".
First, it undermines its own theme repeatedly by showing multiple instances where Sisu naively trusting people is bad.
Second, it's really problematic when Raya blindly trusting Namaari at the end of the movie is shown as a good thing. Namaari did nothing to earn that trust - kids should be learning that trust is a two way street. Also Sisu blindly trusting people throughout the movie is shown as a bad thing, but somehow when Raya does it its a good thing?
In classic narrative structure, the protagonist has a flaw, things go bad because of that flaw, at their lowest point the protagonist learns their lesson, and ultimately succeeds due to learning said lesson.
A lot of problems in Raya and the Last Dragon are fixed if instead of there being multiple instances where Sisu trusting people causes problems, we instead have multiple instances where Raya distrusting people causes problems. Raya needs a journey of growth where she learns to trust again, and Sisu should be the catalyst for that change.
For example, in Spine (the desert), maybe Namaari genuinely apologizes to Raya and wants to work together, Raya rejects her, not wanting to be betrayed again, they fight, Raya injures one of Namaari's guards/friends, causing Namaari to resent Raya. Raya's distrust caused unnecessary antagonism.
Later in Spine, Raya distrusts Boun (the boat captain / porridge restauranteur), preferring to escape by land, but Sisu does trust him, and by taking the boat, they avoid a falling into a Fang trap on land, showing the value of Sisu's trusting approach.
In Talon (the market by the water), someone tries to warn Raya about the corrupt chief, she doesn't trust their warning, and lo and behold, the chief is corrupt, leading to Raya and Sisu being put at avoidable risk.
In Spine (the snowy village), Tong tells Raya of a secret escape route, Raya doesn't trust him, leading to an unnecessary confrontation with Namaari, and Namaari being alerted about Sisu.
Speaking of Namaari, if Raya is to ultimately trust her in the end, we need to make her more sympathetic, so she can be deserving of that trust. I remember a line where either her or her mom said "Fang is running out of room for its citizens"... yet Fang is shown to be a spacious, prosperous island with plenty of space. Imagine instead a Fang that is cramped, packed to the brim with people, really selling the point that they have no choice but to expand, and Namaari and her mom are trying to do best by Fang.
Suppose at the beginning when Namaari initially betrays Raya (when they were kids), Namaari is reluctant to do so, seeming to genuinely want friendship, but is ultimately bound by her obligation to Fang.
Anyway, back to present day - just like in the original, Sisu convinces Raya to attempt to ally with Namaari, Namaari is genuinely willing to help, and they meet by that cliff edge near Fang. Namaari spots one of her mother's Fang spies hiding in the trees behind Raya, raises her crossbow, Raya misinterprets this as an act of aggression and attacks Namaari, causing the crossbow to miss and instead kill Sisu. Crucially, it is Raya's lack of trust that directly caused this problem.
The water disappears, the good guys attempt to protect Fang citizens from the Druun, Raya and Namaari fight and again, we really try to sell how Namaari has been trying to do the right thing all along, Raya finally realizes that, realizes that her lack of trust caused all these problems, and learns from her mistake. Fang is overrun by Druun, the characters are cornered into that trust moment, when the good guys don't trust Namaari, Raya takes the first step. the difference is this time when Raya chooses to Namaari, the moment is earned: Raya has learned a lesson, and Namaari has shown she is deserving of the trust.
tldr; the story works much better if we retool the movie to show that Raya distrusting people causes problems, and that instead, (earned) trust is a good thing

2021.10.26 15:39 playgirl1000 Wie frage ich bei meinem Chef eine Teilzeit Beschäftigung an?
Hey, ich versuche es kurz zu halten. Ich hab grade meine Ausbildung fertig gestellt und arbeite seit ein paar Monaten Vollzeit in der gleichen Firma in der ich diese gemacht habe.
Ich war nie wirklich 100% zufrieden dort. Das Stress Level ist immens, die Geschäftsleitung inkompetent und cholerisch. Ich stehe 5/7 Tagen in der Woche unter Strom.
Ich hab jetzt mehrfach kleine Nervenzusammembrüche wegen der Arbeit gehabt und auch schon über einen Wechsel nachgedacht. Leider fällt es mir sehr schwer dort zu kündigen da ich Angst davor habe dass es die falsche Entscheidung ist und vor allem wegen dem Kollegium.
Jetzt habe ich drüber nachgedacht, ob ich fürs erste nicht auf 50% reduziere, sprich 20 Stunden/Woche. Das wäre ein erster großer Schritt in Richtung gesunde Psyche für mich. Wenn ich in der Zeit dann eine andere potentielle Arbeitsstelle finden würde, würde es mir auch leichter fallen zu kündigen, da ich einfach mehr Distanz aufbauen könnte.
Nun die Frage, wie spreche ich das an? Ich weiß, dass ich für die Firma sehr wichtig bin und es keinesfalls im Interesse meines Chefs ist mich auf Teilzeit runter zu stufen.
Ich wäre eigentlich gerne ehrlich und würde sagen, dass ich nur 100% geben kann, wenn ich reduziere. Aber das impliziert auch, dass ich aktuell nicht 100% gebe und auch, dass ich psychisch instabil bin. Den Eindruck möchte ich eigentlich nicht vermitteln. Das könnte gegen mich verwendet werden.
Ich hatte überlegt, ob ein Studium als Ausrede sinnvoll wäre. Dann bekäme ich aber einen Werkstudierenden-Vertrag und müsste ggf. Leistungsnachweise und Unterlagen vorlegen. Das ist auch nicht optimal.
Habt ihr eine Idee, wie ich das Thema am besten anspreche?
Bin für jeden Tipp dankbar. Aber bitte nicht vorschlagen direkt zu kündigen, das ist für mich wirklich sehr schwer. Vielen Dank
