If I really like music from Brazil (Bossa Nova,MPB), the USA (Jazz, Blues, Hip-Hop, Psychedelic rock), Jamaica (reggae), and Cuban Music (still getting into it), Spain (Flamenco) What other genres can you recommend?
Looking to expand my horizons, just a normal guy. Is there something in music theory that united these genres, just Hip-Hop, Psychedelic rock and Flamenco seem off but the others there is just something that seems in common with them. Would loe to learn more about music from around the world.

2023.06.07 16:41 lelisblanc When to pull hard neck (music) garlic?
| || |
7a MD here. First time growing Garlic last year submitted by lelisblanc to vegetablegardening [link] [comments]
These are hard neck music variety that I planted around mid/ end of October. They already scaped which I promptly cut and sauté (yum).
I know the general rule is when the bottom couple of leaves dry and brown, which they seem to be, but I dig 1 up and it didn’t look very large. I do have clay soil which I amended before planting, but I’m wondering if that’s also attributed to the smaller size.
But I’m wondering if I should pull these now or leave em in for another couple of weeks.

i like how it looks rn. haven't bought the coastal bed but i think this bed is fine. i'd love to merge stone and coastal themes but i did other parts of the house japan inspired. kinda tricked my realistic thinking brain into accepting the dresser as the divider like the book bed. added extra lighting by hiding the iron wall lamp (the remnants of the stone theme) behind the side table. moca has two tubs in his room cus he likes to bath with his bros while listening to & talking abt music but also cus he ain't sharing his space, he need them 5 feet apart cus they're not gay. submitted by j272o to tsukiodysseygame [link] [comments]
2023.06.07 16:41 Prestigious_Leg_7046 Do I need to target a specific niche?
Hi, so I've been making music for a while and I only do instrumental tracks; I don't do vocals or anything like that. Lot of people told me my music sounds like it could fit in a video game, and while I'm not annoyed about those comments, I have to say I don't really intend my tracks to sound like video game soundtracks. But it did help me better understand appropriate categorization for my sound and what type of listener demographic I would be looking at. Now, if I want to be successful in my music career, should I outright promote it as the said genre and try to get placements in game industry / or other media that needs bg music?
My concern is that if I keep releasing without marketing as specific genre, I won't ever get listeners since it doesn't have any vocal and it's not "radio" music. To best increases my success at getting streams and listeners, do I need to specifically target a niche?

2023.06.07 16:41 ToL_TTRPG_Dev TOL V.#0.11.2 (6/7/23): T1 Arcane Abilities and Some Combat Rules
| || | submitted by ToL_TTRPG_Dev to tolttrpg [link] [comments]
Welcome to another update to TOL. We're nearing closer to beta release every week. Still on course for releasing play-test material and a true beta by this fall! This week has been hectic at my day job, so I haven't been able to post as much fun content on the subreddit or our socials, so this might be a bigger reveal today!
T1 Arcane Ability Spoilers
One of the bigger things I've been working on this last week is how I wanted to present abilities. As the tree itself is a good visual tool, it makes writing how things connect a little trickier. Also all combat abilities have the option of upgrades, which also needed to be shown in a simple manner, while still conveying it's an upgrade to a specific ability.
So without further ado, here are some Tier 1 Abilities from the Arcane side. (Also, if you guys get sick of Arcane stuff, let me know and I can post more of the Discipline/Holy/Martial stuff as well).
Note: Upgrades are currently being reworked for this ability. Also, the primary stat in the beast shape path is CON to help improve maintaining focus. Focus will work similarly to concentration, except a bit more streamlined and easy to remember. Upgrades are in-place for this one. However, they haven't been play-tested, so I didn't want to put them here.
The best part (In my opinion) about this layout, is how easy it is to make, edit, and produce abilities, as this is actually done in a simple spreadsheet app like Excel or Google Sheets. Making it very simple for me to copy a layout and just add or change small things per ability, and maintain appropriate spacing thanks to the cell setup.
Oh Combat. One of the main pillars of any TTRPG, it can be a fun action packed strategy, or a sluggish bore with too many things to track. I'd like to lean more towards the fun strategy aspect, and take a few nods from modern games and rpgs. Action Points
Every player, starting at level 1 has 3 Action Points they can use in a turn. Looking at the abilities above, you can see, they generally cost 2 action points to perform. You can also move up to 30-feet or 6 squares using 1 Action Point. A basic attack also costs 2 action points. There are abilities on the skill tree that also give you and your allies more Action Points in a turn, and there are natural Action Point Increases as you level (APIs for short).
With this Action Point economy, it gives players a wide berth of freedom, and as they get stronger, they can perform more, or bigger actions that consume more AP for a significant increase. Which leads to another mechanic found in TOL that's lacking in others:
Storing Action Points. A player can store a number of Action Points a turn, equal to 1 + Half their level. This uses the AP for the turn, but allows them to get off another attack in the next round, or perform special actions or abilities. For instance, a level 1 player can make an attack, then store 1 AP. On their next turn, They would be able to make 2 basic attacks, or cast an ability and attack, or move 4 times, etc.
As for mechanics outside of a players turn, I haven't settled on how I would like to go about it. Right now, I'm leaning towards a player needing to have had excess AP at the end of their turn to make an attack of opportunity, however, this would lead to a slow down in combat if someone isn't tracking their AP during their turns effectively.
Aside from basic attacks and abilities, there are also a TON of other things you can do with your Action Points on your turn with clearly defined AP costs, as well as a note for GMs that if you're unsure, 2 AP is a good standard. I won't go into too much detail this time, but perhaps next patch notes I can add some stuff, or as we approach beta, more info will come out. ;)
Expect a lot more content coming to the YouTube channel, where I may also start doing video patches for a quick summary and side tangents for people who aren't fond of reading or want background noise.
I also have more side stuff planned with our friend Olasku and another GM I game with frequently, to discuss more intricate topics in a more podcast-y format (I know you're probably sick of Tabletop podcasts and I'm sorry) of TOL and TTRPG systems in general.
Thanks for reading and being a part of this community. :)

2023.06.07 16:40 music_panda Brook chapter 442
I haven’t seen this connection mentioned anywhere yet but I’m sure Oda probably did this on purpose!
Brook, the musician of the crew, debuted in chapter 442. This varies by country but A = 442hz is the standard tuning frequency used in Japan (source - I’m a music student in Japan lol). This is sometimes also referred to as concert pitch. For those unfamiliar, if you have ever seen an orchestra tuning before a performance they are all tuning based on the note A at exactly 442hz. All pianos in Japan would too be set to match this tuning. I’ve also read that the standard used for some Japanese traditional instrument such as shakuhachi and koto also use 442.

2023.06.07 16:39 HariSeldon1517 In need of German music recommendations.
As many others, I started learning German mainly because of Rammstein. Being able to increasingly understand their lyrics is one of my motivations for keeping up in learning the language. I have also consumed other German media, such as TV shows, besides Rammstein, but in music Rammstein has been my main driving force.
However, in light of some ugly recent news, I am taking a break from Rammstein while the whole thing is sorted out. I don't intend to discuss those news here or make this post about that, since there's plenty of that in Rammstein
What I need is good recommendations for music in German that I can listen to to keep me motivated in learning the language. It can but does not need to be in the same vein of heavy/industrial metal. I can accept any genre that has decent instrumentation and interesting lyrics. What I don't like is extremely simplistic stuff that is just the same three-or-four-note melody repeated over and over while some singer says some trite or corny lines that have already been said in thousands of songs.

I like all kinds of sports, such as golf, yoga and fitness. These exercises can help us keep a healthy body and a beautiful figure. This is very important for my work and life, because I think a person's greatest wealth is to have a healthy body. Of course, tasting delicious food, shopping and listening to music in my spare time is also one of my ways to relax. People with the same interests as me, maybe we can exchange views with each other, maybe we can become good friends :)

2023.06.07 16:38 2012Jesusdies China apparently disguises international loans to not appear on balance sheets. One of these is apparently foreign currency exchange. Can anyone explain how this works?
Parks and others found that China’s central bank has effectively been lending tens of billions of dollars through what appear as ordinary foreign currency exchanges.
Foreign currency exchanges, called swaps, allow countries to essentially borrow more widely used currencies like the U.S. dollar to plug temporary shortages in foreign reserves. They are intended for liquidity purposes, not to build things, and last for only a few months.
But China’s swaps mimic loans by lasting years and charging higher-than-normal interest rates. And importantly, they don’t show up on the books as loans that would add to a country’s debt total.
Mongolia has taken out $1.8 billion annually in such swaps for years, an amount equivalent to 14% of its annual economic output. Pakistan has taken out nearly $3.6 billion annually for years and Laos $300 million .
It's apparently an exchange of loans made in different currencies. But how exactly would one use this vehicle as a quasi loan? If Mongolia, for example, issues debt in Tugrik at say 16% interest (with 12% inflation), currency swapping that with a Chinese issued USD debt of say 5%, wouldn't China just be left with a debt issued in a more unstable currency on hand? And who is the ultimate lender? Is China paying off debt to some Mongolian institution? And Mongolia is doing the reverse of paying off debt to some Chinese institution?

2023.06.07 16:38 Nervous_Yam4520 22f in need of some girlfriends!
Hey, so I’m really in need of some new girlfriends. I have no social circle where I’m living now except my bf and a couple relatives. I don’t want to talk to or be friends with men as it would make my boyfriend uncomfortable. I’m 22, currently 39 weeks pregnant with my first baby, on maternity leave so I’m always at home and trying really hard to figure out how to spend my time. I’m Canadian. I enjoy reading though I didn’t have a lot of time to do so before I stopped working, I love all kinds of music and movies. I don’t play a lot of games but I got really into Stardew valley, sims 3, Skyrim and fallout 4. Im just really lonely and starting to feel quite isolated since I went on leave and would really like some new friends :)

I want to start getting into music production particularly playing around with and making beats on DAWs. I am a complete beginner but have always been passionate about music and wish when I was younger I was able to play an instrument.
Few questions I have is, which DAWs do most of you recommend? I have a MacBook Air with GarageBand installed already should I just use that or should I get Ableton? Or any others?
I want to keep my MacBook as functional and pristine for as long as possible. Will using GarageBand or Ableton overheat and slow down my max over time? Or is there a good cheap functional laptop you guys may recommend?
Very vague and generic I know I apologise hoping for some enlightenment from the community. Thanks in advance

The music in this game is just... weird. The tracks don't really have any hooks or anything, they just kind of meander around and sound like this mushy mess.
Listening to it more and more, I really think these might have been constructed by AI. If you ever listen to some of the music that these AI algorithms make, it does have this same weird mishmash disorganized feeling to it.

2023.06.07 16:38 FitLadyZone Effective Strategies for Women Seeking Weight Loss
Weight loss is often associated with diet and exercise, but numerous additional factors influence the process. Scientific research has revealed that various elements such as sleep quality and stress levels play a crucial role in hunger, metabolism, body weight, and belly fat. Fortunately, incorporating a few simple adjustments into your daily routine can yield significant benefits when it comes to shedding those extra pounds. Here are 23 methods that can help women achieve their weight loss goals:
Minimize Refined Carbohydrates: Refined carbohydrates undergo extensive processing, resulting in reduced fiber and micronutrient content. These foods cause rapid spikes in blood sugar levels, increase hunger, and contribute to weight gain and belly fat. Opt for whole grain alternatives like oats, brown rice, quinoa, buckwheat, and rye, while limiting consumption of bread, pasta, and packaged foods.
Engage in Resistance Exercises: Resistance exercises, such as weightlifting, gym workouts, or bodyweight exercises, build muscle and enhance strength. They are particularly beneficial for women over 50, as they elevate the number of calories burned at rest, help maintain bone mineral density, and offer protection against osteoporosis.
Increase Water Intake: Consuming more water is a simple yet effective way to accelerate weight loss. According to a small study, consuming half a liter of water increased calorie burning by 30-40% for 30-40 minutes in participants. Drinking water before meals also aids weight loss by reducing calorie intake by 13%.
Boost Protein Consumption: Protein-rich foods, including meat, poultry, seafood, eggs, and legumes, are vital components of a healthy diet, especially for weight loss. Research indicates that a high-protein diet reduces appetite, increases feelings of fullness, and boosts metabolism. In a 12-week study, increasing protein intake by 15% led to an average reduction of 441 calories in daily intake and a weight loss of 5 kilograms.
Prioritize Regular Sleep: Sufficient sleep is just as important as diet and exercise when it comes to weight loss for women. Inadequate sleep is associated with increased body weight and higher levels of the hunger-stimulating hormone ghrelin. A study involving women revealed that getting at least seven hours of sleep per day and improving sleep quality increased the likelihood of weight loss by 33%.
Incorporate Cardiovascular Exercises: Engaging in aerobic exercises, or cardio, elevates heart rate and burns additional calories. Combining cardio with a healthy diet offers significant weight loss possibilities. Aim for at least 20-40 minutes of cardio each day and accumulate 150-300 minutes per week for optimal results.
Maintain a Food Journal: Keeping a record of your food intake in a journal can promote accountability and encourage healthier choices. It simplifies calorie counting and serves as an effective strategy for weight management. By maintaining a food journal, you can remain committed to your goals and achieve better long-term outcomes.
Increase Fiber Intake: Adding more fiber to your diet is a valuable weight loss tactic as it slows down stomach emptying, leading to increased feelings of fullness for an extended period. Simply increasing fiber intake by 14 grams per day, without making other dietary or lifestyle changes, has been linked to a 10% reduction in calorie intake and a weight loss of 1.9 kilograms in 3.8 months. Excellent sources of fiber include fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, and nuts.
Embrace Mindful Eating: Practice mindful eating by staying present and fully engaged with your meals. Eat slowly, savor the taste, appreciate the appearance and smell, and be mindful of the sensations of the food. This practice promotes healthier eating habits and is a powerful tool for weight loss. Research demonstrates that slow eating increases the feeling of fullness and leads to significant reductions in daily calorie intake.
Choose Smart Snacks: Opt for healthy, low-calorie snacks to support weight loss and curb hunger between meals. Snacks high in protein and fiber increase satiety and reduce cravings. Nut butter on whole fruits, hummus with vegetables, and yogurt with nuts are nutrient-dense snack options that can aid in your weight loss journey.
Abandon the Diet Mentality: Ditch the allure of fad diets that promise quick weight loss but often result in negative effects on your waistline and overall health. Research indicates that eliminating certain foods from your diet can lead to increased appetite and overeating habits. Fad diets promote unhealthy eating patterns and perpetuate a cycle of constant dieting and quitting, which is detrimental to long-term weight loss success.
Move More: If you lack time and space for a full workout, incorporating more steps into your day is an easy way to burn extra calories and accelerate weight loss. Non-exercise activities, like walking or taking the stairs, can contribute significantly to your daily calorie expenditure. Simple strategies such as parking farther away from your destination or going for a short walk during your lunch break can increase your total steps and support your weight loss efforts.
Set Realistic Goals: Setting realistic goals not only increases your chances of success but also makes achieving weight loss goals more manageable. Ensure your goals are specific, measurable, attainable, relevant, and time-bound (SMART). They should provide a clear plan and hold you accountable. Instead of simply aiming to lose 5 kilograms, consider setting goals such as keeping a food diary, going to the gym three times a week, and incorporating vegetables into every meal to target losing 5 kilograms in three months.
Manage Stress: Studies suggest that chronic stress can contribute to weight gain over time. Stress can also impact eating patterns and lead to overeating. Engage in stress-management activities like exercise, listening to music, practicing yoga, journaling, or confiding in friends and family. These simple yet effective strategies can help reduce stress levels and support your weight loss journey.
Try High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT): Incorporate high-intensity interval training (HIIT) a few times a week instead of traditional cardio exercises to accelerate weight loss. HIIT involves short bursts of intense exercise followed by brief recovery periods, elevating your heart rate. Research shows that HIIT can reduce waist circumference, increase weight loss, and burn more calories compared to activities like cycling, running, or resistance training.
Opt for Smaller Plates: Using smaller plates can aid in portion control and facilitate weight loss. Although research findings are limited and inconsistent, one study suggests that individuals using smaller plates consume less food and feel more satisfied after meals compared to those using larger plates. By using smaller plates, you can limit portion sizes, reduce the likelihood of overeating, and control calorie intake.
Consider Probiotic Supplements: Probiotics are beneficial bacteria found in certain foods or available as supplements that improve gut health. Studies suggest that probiotics can enhance fat loss and modulate levels of appetite-reducing hormones, aiding in weight loss. Specifically, the probiotic strain Lactobacillus gasseri has shown promising effectiveness in reducing waist circumference and overall body weight.
The Potential of Yoga
Yoga has been shown through studies to have multiple benefits for weight management. It can help prevent weight gain and promote fat burning. Moreover, practicing yoga is effective in reducing stress levels and anxiety, which are often linked to emotional eating patterns. By incorporating yoga into your routine, you can address both physical and mental aspects of weight loss, fostering a healthier relationship with food and your body.
Practice Mindful Chewing: Take the time to chew your food slowly and thoroughly, as it can aid in weight loss by reducing the amount of food you consume. Research suggests that chewing each bite 50 times significantly decreases calorie intake compared to chewing only 15 times. Another study found that chewing 150-200 times more than usual reduced food intake by 9.5% and 14.8%.
Prioritize a Nutritious Breakfast: Starting your day with a healthy breakfast sets the tone for a successful day and helps keep you satisfied until your next meal. Studies indicate that maintaining regular eating habits can reduce the risk of overeating. Consuming a breakfast high in protein appears to lower levels of the hunger hormone ghrelin, which aids in appetite and hunger control.
Explore Intermittent Fasting: Intermittent fasting involves alternating periods of eating and fasting daily, typically lasting 14-24 hours. It is believed to be as effective for weight loss as calorie restriction and may even improve metabolism by increasing calories burned during rest.
Limit Processed Foods: Processed foods are often calorie-dense, high in sugar, and lacking in essential nutrients like protein, fiber, and micronutrients. Research suggests that increased consumption of processed foods is associated with higher body weight in women. Opt for whole foods such as fruits, vegetables, healthy fats, proteins, whole grains, and legumes instead of processed options.
Reduce Added Sugar: Added sugar contributes to weight gain and various health problems, including diabetes and heart disease. Foods high in added sugar not only add extra calories but also lack essential vitamins, minerals, fiber, and protein. By decreasing your intake of sugar-added foods such as soda, candies, fruit juice, sports drinks, and desserts, you can promote weight loss and improve overall health.
Weight loss for women involves more than just diet and exercise. By implementing a few small changes in your lifestyle, you can increase the likelihood of long-term weight loss. Remember, even adopting one or two of these strategies can have a positive impact and lead to healthy and sustainable weight loss results.

2023.06.07 16:38 pachyderm_house [Kings Island] Trip Report 6/4
I’ll preface this by saying my peak as an enthusiast was 2004-2014. My original home park was Six Flags Great America, but I’ve since moved up and down the East Coast, and have finally settled in Cincinnati. My only previous visits to Kings Island were 2007 (Firehawk Opening Weekend) and in 2011. So definitely a few new experiences here.
We arrived a smidge after opening and were prepared to buy Fast Lane, but ultimately decided to wait it out and see if we needed it. Thank god we did. Was really surprised at how light the crowd was for the first Sunday in June.
I’m also not reviewing each individual time a ride was ridden. So this is in the order we rode each ride for the first time.
Mystic Timbers (x3) -Wait times: >10min, 20min, 15min I don’t think I ever watched a POV of this after it was built and I’m really glad I didn’t. What a surprise this was, especially after reading how much it was advertised as a “family coaster.” Clearly that was just based on the height requirement. This thing packs a mean punch and might just be my favorite coaster in the park. I know the ride is already six years old, but I was surprised at how grown in everything was, or perhaps how much foliage they managed to not have to remove during construction. My whole group got a kick out of the shed bit too. Can’t say enough good things and they had a great crew on it as well. Rode in the back twice and front once. Not a bad seat on this in my opinion.
Diamondback (x2) -Wait times: >10min, 15min It’s aged well, and is probably still my favorite of the hypers* I’ve been on (sorry, I’m not counting Orion as a hyper) – even over Mako. The back row is still an absolute joy on these trains, and I’m thankful for the amount of airtime moments you get before the trim, which the pop of air coming out of the MCBR completely makes up for. Fun during the day. Fun at night. One of my favorites. Rode this in the back twice.
Beast (x1) -Wait times: >5min I looked through a couple of KI trip reports before starting this one, and was surprised to see mixed reviews on Beast. ~Back in my day,~ it was pretty highly regarded around the community. I still love this thing for what it is. It’s not Voyage. It’s not an RMC. It’s pure chaos designed in 1979. Trims or no trims, it’s a completely unique experience during the day, but even more so at night. I’ll love this thing forever. Rode this in the middle once.
Orion (x2) -Wait times: >10min, 20min Oh boy. I followed the construction of this and the initial reviews on this subreddit, so I had no idea what to expect going in. Maybe a weird take here, but I think Firehawk fit into the area so much better. In a perfect world, Firehawk remains and Area 72 keeps expanding out. Orion is an awkward fit. It feels like the entire ride + queue + plaza is like a premade coaster in RCT. I read one review on here that said, “a terrain coster that doesn’t follow the terrain.” Couldn’t have said it better myself. However, once the ride begins, none of that matters. It’s an intimidating lift, an intimidating drop, and just a heck of a lot of fun. The hangtime on the first drop is worth any wait. The wave turn is… familiar (more on this later). The entire turnaround was so much more intense than I thought it would be. The speed hill is to die for. In my opinion, the first half makes up for anything else this ride lacks. After the trimmed hill, the ride is what it is. I do like that it feels like it keeps most of its speed going into the final brakes. And despite the elements, doesn’t feel too dull. That last pop of air into the dip before the brakes was a nice cherry on top. Rode back on both rides.
For me, looking at Orion’s layout in a vacuum, it’s better than Millennium Force’s layout in a vacuum. But when you add in the Intamin trains and the location of Millennium Force, it’s the better ride. I would much rather wait an hour for Orion than for Millennium Force. I know they’re not the same manufacturer, but that’s the only other giga I have ridden to compare it to.
And going back to what the wave turn (and Orion in general) reminds me of, being a Six Flags Great America nut before this, it feels like Raging Bull and Goliath had a baby – Raging Bull’s layout in a Goliath-sized package. Both rollercoasters I love dearly, despite how not “Top 10” both of those rides are.
Racer (x1) -Wait time: >15min Which side got work done for its anniversary? Red? Blue? Both? Neither? I only got on blue side but really wasn’t able to enjoy the second half. A timeless classic of course, but just a little uncomfortable Rode this in the third row of the first car. Any other suggestions?
Banshee (x2) -Wait times: >15min, 30min (small downtime) Is this ride controversial too? Regardless, it’s my second favorite invert behind the original Batman: The Ride. Fun forces, fun pacing, fun inversions. Just everything I like in an invert. The drop straight into the dive loop is unique and earned big points in my book. Everything after is just relentless. I love that this doesn’t have a MCBR and just keeps going. Visually stunning ride and I hope it someday has the same foliage around it that the next coaster has. Rode this front and back.
Bat (x2) -Wait times: >5min, walk on I love this ride. Always going to be upset I never got to ride Big Bad Wolf, so I only know this as my favorite Arrow Suspended Coaster. Such a blast no matter where you ride and just such a unique experience. This would be a great ride without the trees, but adding in those and the terrain just make it that much better. Rode this in front and back.
Invertigo (x1) -Wait time: walk on My favorite roller coaster will always be Deja Vu, and this will never match up to it. However, I’ll always appreciate this experience for what it is, especially knowing that I’ll probably never make a trip to Idaho for Aftershock. Not terribly rough and just good fun. Rode this in the very back.
Drop Tower (x1) -Wait time: 25min Ten years ago, I was fearless. Now, drop towers spark a little bit more fear into me. It’s the fun kind of fear at least. Seeing the shadow of the tower below us and realizing how far we still had to go didn’t make it any easier, but ultimately a blast coming down per usual.
Adventure Express (x1) -Wait time: 5min. This thing hurts in a very fun way. So much charm. I love these mine trains. But I will reiterate, it hurt. The theming makes it all worth it though. Any recommendation on seats for this, or is it just one I have to learn to ride? Rode this in the second row.
Odds and Ends Diamondback, Orion, and Mystic Timbers at night were a ton of fun, with Mystic Timbers being our darkest night ride of the bunch. I honestly expected a lot more of the waterpark crowd to fill in the park, but it just never happened.
We stopped for lunch at a Chicken Place near Invertigo and couldn’t believe A. How tasty it was and B. How reasonable the portions were for what we paid. It’s the little things sometimes. In general I was surprised how well priced most stuff is. Maybe it’s just the Gold Pass discount clouding my vision?
Speaking of Gold Pass, the ability to have this thing on my phone in a cashless park is incredible. Maybe passes in mobile wallets aren’t all that exciting anymore (I haven’t been a pass holder anywhere since 2013), but as someone who can also lock and unlock their car with their phone, it’s a godsend to only have to bring my phone in and nothing else.
Final Thoughts I thought I was coming back to a Kings Island that would feel more like Cedar Point than it did after the first few years of ownership. Boy was I wrong. For the short time I’ve been in Cincinnati, this really does feel like a park that belongs to Cincinnati. In my circles, people talk about it like people in Pittsburgh talk about Kennywood. It’s got big chain coasters with local charm. It reminds me a lot of my former home park in Six Flags Great America in the sense that you won’t get the biggest and best as others in the chain, but what you’re getting is still pretty damn good. I’m glad we ended up grabbing Gold Passes. Really looking forward to making some quick trips to the park to round out our nights in the summer, with some longer day trips like these mixed in.
Thanks for reading, and looking forward to any discussion this sparks!

2023.06.07 16:37 elBonzos Is masturbating to naked boobs ALSOOO porn and it will destroy my brain?
I'm not feeling ashamed of it. I searched for it. But if I will imagine my ex boobs while beating my penisu will that also will be considered porn? I don't know what to do dear people, I'm s-o horny all the time, hadn't been had sex since 2019. Im getting very sad end envy on couples. I'm masturbating only 1 time per week, and also do few exercises and play music, and also 8h job. I just want to find a girlfriend kind, respectful and beautiful that can make me happy, and maybe have sex with me whenever she feel to.
