My Experience with Dr Eric Emerson in North Carolina

2020.09.27 18:21 localgay100maway My Experience with Dr Eric Emerson in North Carolina

On Tuesday, September 15th I had Double Incision Top Surgery with Dr Eric Emerson at Caromont Specialty Surgery in Gastonia NC.
I just wanted to detail the experiences I had in as much detail as I remember to give others an idea of what to expect for top surgery/this particular practice.
Wall of text ahead, this is very detailed.
Preparation: -I pretty much just called Piedmont Plastic Surgery and Dermatology (the surgery clinic, from now on I'll refer to it as PPSD) and scheduled an appointment to meet with Dr Emerson.
-(Actually, I'm now remembering that PPSD has a Contact Us page on their site where I could personally ask him a question, so I asked if he accepted BCBS Out of State. I got a response pretty quickly)
-Personally, I wanted to file insurance; I have BCBS Tennessee, which required that I got a letter from a mental health professional with at least a Masters, that confirmed I was diagnosed with gender dysphoria. Emerson required a letter from a professional as well, but I dont exactly remember the requirements since I already had one.
Initial Appointment: -So I took the 4 hour drive to Gastonia, NC for my appointment with him. They of course asked me to fill out the first appointment stuff and they asked me my preferred name and pronouns.
-When I was in one of those rooms, Emerson came back and talked to me about what the surgery was all about. I seemed to know everything so I guess he didnt tell me much else.
-Honestly, prepare some questions, because he doesn't sit down and go through everything with you. If you dont have questions prepared that are beyond the obvious you're not going to come out of there knowing much more lol.
-So between the Initial Appointment and the Pre-Op I think were 6 months. HOWEVER, my first date was 3 months out, I had to re-schedule personally because of Covid-19 crap.
Pre-Op: -I had a pre-op with Emerson at PPSD and an hour later one with Caromont Regional Medical Center with an anesthesia nurse.
-The pre-op with Emerson went very similarly to the first appointment. He was nice but it kind of felt like I had to prompt him for more information. The nurses there were also nice, but I dont think some got the memo that I go by He/Him.
-Caromont as a whole is a bit... messy lol. I had to pre-register my surgery date a month before and when they picked up the phone their demeanor made me feel like I called the wrong number or something. I'm not the policyholder for my insurance and the guy on the phone said that he needed my policyholder's social security number (??????) to process my insurance claim. Which I found very bizarre. But a week or so later I called back and they said my claim just recently got processed the day before. So.. the SSN clearly wasn't necessary.
-The actual pre-op appointment with the anesthesia nurse went fine though. Nothing out of the ordinary. They told me that I should expect a call for the exact surgery time by Monday.
-That's not how things went though. I got a call the Thursday before (that went to voicemail) telling me that I had to come in at 8am Friday (?????). When not only is my date on Tuesday, but the surgery clinic isn't even open on Friday. When I tried to call back nobody would ever pick up, so I had to call someone else to try to figure out wtf was going on.
-They said the people probably got some degree of confused and I should get called by Monday with a surgery time.
-I didn't. So on Monday I called them and asked when I had to come in.
-I also had to do a covid-19 test on the Saturday before my surgery. Which wasn't bad at all, they used a little swab and just tickled my nose a bit. Caromont uses MyChart to display medical records/data. So I went to check my test results the next day and for some reason they marked my visit as "cross-dressing behavior" (???????)
https://imgur.com/a/eYOOdO4
-I'm sick of the weird cunts at Caromont at this point so I just roll my eyes.
Surgery Day: -I checked in at the front desk with my driver and soon they called me back to get prepared.
-The nurse is checking my records with me the last time and I don't remember most of this interaction except for one particular thing. She asked what number from 1-10 I get to before I take pain medication. I said a 4. She replies "I'm not sure what the surgeon told you but this surgery is extremely painful" (??????). Which goes against what almost everyone online has said about it. Which made me more anxious, because why would you say something like that???
-Dr Emerson came in and marked my chest, and then the nurses put in the IV, and put me in these nice leg massage things that promote circulation.
-I fortunately decided to ignore that bizarre comment by the nurse and calm down a bit.
-The anesthesiologist came in and she was the first person at Caromont to ask me for my damn pronouns. Virtually everyone besides Emerson was calling me the wrong thing before this point. They also marked down that I was having a "Breast Reduction" which may have been what lead to that misgendering nonsense.
-I got wheeled back into the surgery room and if I recall correctly the Anesthesiologist said that she was giving me a little something to "take the edge off." It either made me forget or it instantly knocked me out cold but the next thing I remember was waking up in the recovery room.
Recovery: -Emerson doesn't do drains/ace bandages fortunately. Just a compression vest.
-He requires a post-op the very next day so if you are coming from far, you likely want to stay at a hotel. At this post-op he looked at my chest and said it looked fine, and to change the gauze on the nipple dressings 1-2 times a day.
1st Post-Op: -This took place 8 days after surgery. There is a bit more flexibility in scheduling here, give or take a day. -I unfortunately had to drive those 8 hours total due to all of my buds being too busy.
-At this appointment I got the nipple dressing things taken off, and was cleared to not wear the vest (and also to take a showeget the grafts wet)
-He asked how long the drive was and I told him. He said that since it looked great (it did :D) and there were no issues I could go ahead and cancel my 2nd post-op (which would be 1 week from then) and just schedule my last post-op in 4 months.
-He also said that I could lift my arms up above my head whenever I want. Matter of fact, he encouraged that I use my full range of motion. Which I thought was interesting.
Cost: -I filed BCBS Tennessee, as I said earlier. I never knew the estimate for those who arent filing insurance, but I believe it's around $7500. I only paid $2662 though.
-I feel that people never say how much the hospital charges. I had to pay the hospital $2816, which was more than I expected. Caromont actually sent me a receipt. On this receipt, they actually put how much they would charge without insurance. I felt crazy reading it but it said that it would have been $23,000 out-of-pocket. Jeez.
-Haven't gotten a bill from the anesthesiologist yet, they bill about a month or so afterwards. Hoping I already hit my out-of-pocket max for the year or something though lol.
I still have to put vaseline and gauze on the grafts because they're still peeling and look a bit weird; however I looked in the mirror and even with swelling im very satisfied with the result! I may show it here after a few months or so but for now just trust me that it looks good!
I'm answering any further questions for the next few days or so so ask anything! :D

2020.09.24 22:14 pekingduck11 Guilt?

So my dad, who was a great dad, committed suicide 12 years ago. I was 22, my brother 18 and my sister just 11 at the time.
My mum has slowly become more and more self absorbed and demanding ever since. She stole my little sisters inheritance that my dad left her (because she was a minor when my dad died, mum got control of the money until she turned 18. When she turned 18, there was nothing left in the account. Mum had withdrawn the entire £15,000 and spent it within the first six months of dad dying. She didn’t even spend it on anything meaningful or important - just dwindled it away on crap).
Mum has basically become a recluse. She has no job, no family left (her parents are dead and her only remaining sibling isn’t in her life). She didn’t stay in touch with any of dads family nor did she encourage us kids to (she was divorced from my dad and had been for 8 years when he died but they were amicable and had a great Co-parenting relationship). She has no friends. She barely leaves the house. She has put on a huge amount of weight and sits around the house all day, day after day with nowhere to go and nobody to see. She is poor and lives on benefits and struggles. She has an array of health problems.
She does nothing for us kids, even though the three of us are the only people on the planet she sees and speaks to (plus my husband - four). I go to visit her and she won’t even make me a sandwich for lunch. If I ask her for something to eat during my visit she moans and tells me she hardly has any food and what food she does have is for my sister (who still lives with her).
She never goes anywhere or suggests it. To try and get her out I’ve tried buying me and her tickets for a show or concert. She will only go if I buy the tickets, I pick her up and drop her back home afterwards (or pay for her taxis if I’m Not driving) and buy us food and drink while we’re out.
She regularly expects me to drive her anywhere she wants to go even though she has a free bus pass and there’s a bus stop at the bottom of her road. Even though I have 6 dogs, a husband, a house, a full time job, do voluntary work for charity and have hobbies and friends of my own. I have lived in my house for 15 years and she has only ever visited twice (despite the free bus pass, the fact she has no job and could come anytime). Both times I had to go and collect her and bring her to my house and then take her home again afterward. Basically if I don’t go to her, I would never see her again.
She txts me upwards of 30 times a day talking crap. I understand she’s lonely but she has no regard for the fact I have a job and am working. If I don’t txt her back within about 10 minutes she throws a tantrum and sends me abusive txts about how I’m ignorant. I’ve even been out for a meal with friends and explained to her later on I couldn’t txt back straight away because I was in a restaurant with friends eating and she has said that it’s no excuse and it would only take me a few minutes to txt her back! Apparently I should be rude to my company and sit at a dinner table texting her about the weather or what she ate for dinner or which one of her many ailments are bothering her most today, instead of eating!!
She is negative about everything. A couple of years ago I cycled over 400 miles from one county to another to raise over £5000 for charity. When I told her I had signed up for this challenge, she laughed and said I was mental and needed my head testing! She never tells me well done or says she is proud. I’ve travelled all over the world and when I’m away on trips she isn’t bothered and doesn’t care where I am or what I’m doing. But if my brother goes away on holiday she asks him to send her photos and a daily update of everything he’s seen and done that day.
When I was getting married, my husband and I decided we wanted to elope just the two of us and have a big family party when we returned. When we told her she cried and screamed and called us horrible and selfish and said if she wanted to pay for herself to come to the wedding then why would we stop her? In the end she guilt tripped us into changing our wedding so our parents could come in they wanted to. Nearer to the wedding, her partner got a new job and wasn’t allowed time off to come to the wedding. Because he couldn’t go, she decided she wasn’t going to go (even though he had paid in full and it was all paid for and planned and had cost her nothing). So after forcing me to change my wedding for her to be allowed to attend, and after someone else paying for her to travel across the world to attend at no cost to her whatsoever, she then decided she wasn’t going and we had the wedding without her and with other guests we didn’t particularly want there but had to have given we allowed people to come solely for her!! Later on when I confronted her and told her how much this had upset me and how I’d changed my dream wedding (eloping with no guests) purely for her only for her not to bother coming, she shrugged/laughed it off and told me to ‘get a life’ and it was no big deal and that I was lying because of course I hadn’t changed my whole wedding just for her and to stop being stupid!!
I recently discovered she had thrown away an ornament that my dad bought me that I had given to her because it matched her home decor and I had redecorated my home and it no longer matched. Thinking that giving it to her would keep it in the family I gave it to her as it looked great in her house. I told her if she ever didn’t want it anymore she should absolutely give it back to me as dad had bought it for me and I didn’t want it going in the bin. I noticed it wasn’t in her house recently and asked where it was. She told me she’d thrown it away. I was very upset and told her I’d wanted it back if she didn’t want it anymore and I’d made it clear it was dads and she wasn’t to throw it away. She claimed she had no recollection of that conversation and said she didn’t know it was dads and it was gone. She literally didn’t give a toss. She did the same years ago when my dad gave me all his Stephen king books when they split up as he had no room for them in his apartment. My bro and sis don’t really read and me and my dad are bookworms and dad got me into Stephen King so he gave his whole collection to me (all early editions). When I moved out of mums and bought my own place I only took essentials when I first moved out as I was renovating my new house so I left a lot of stuff in mums until the renovations were done. When I went back four months later for the rest of my stuff she had given all dads books and some of my other stuff to the charity shop! Now dad is dead I still get upset that I could have had an entire Stephen king early edition collection that once belonged to my dad but instead I have to buy all the books again one by one because she gave them away.
Anyway I’m sorry to ramble. I didn’t realise how much I needed to get a lot of this stuff off my chest until i started writing!
The point of this post was to ask whether people feel guilty going no contact. I phased my mum out of my life about 4 months ago when we fell out when she said that if I was to split up from my husband, I wouldn’t be able to move in with her if I was stuck for a place to live. This is despite her living in a three bedroom house (where only two bedrooms are being used), two bathrooms (only two people there), a huge garden she never goes in and a double drive even though her and my sister don’t drive or have a car. Despite living in this big house and having plenty of spare space, and despite me killing myself to give her money for nearly two years to help with her rent because she couldn’t afford to live there herself, she wouldn’t let me live there or stay there, even temporarily, if I needed to! We were talking hypothetically at the time but that’s bedsides the point. We had a big argument and I stopped speaking to her.
The problem I have is the guilt. Although I’ve been happier without her negativity or constantly wanting attention or money etc, I feel guilty at going NC. I know she is depressed and lonely. I know there’s not much I can do about that (in the past I’ve done everything from offer to join a gym with her, offer to join a hobby club, offer to put her on a dating site or a friendship meet up site and helped her job search - she isn’t interested in any of that stuff. She is depressed in her meaningless life but has no desire to lose weight, get healthier, meet friends or a man, get a job to give her more money and get her out there, or take up any interests or hobbies). I feel guilty though - like I shouldn’t turn my back in her when she has so few people in her life already.
Does anyone else ever feel guilty? How do you deal with guilt of cutting them out of your life??

2020.09.24 21:33 N_Jay_Bee Thought my mom was genuinely sorry, foolishly surprised when she proves she’s not.

Hey there, posted once before about my JNMIL who is now JMaybeMIL, but deleted out of fear of her finding it somehow. (Anxiety is fun). She’s not so bad now that we are very LC, and she even is pretty pleasant now for the most part (few exceptions of course, like arguing with me over BLM and trans rights, which she is against, but I shut her down so beautifully afterwards I got compliments from both DearH and JYFIL.) for the most part she’s a non-issue, instead it’s my mom who’s become (or really has always been) a JustNo. I’ve been in therapy for a few months now, but some things happened and I’m just trying to make sense of it all and figure out where to go from there. I was hoping writing things out would help, and if you read this and have advice I’m open to it for sure, sorry if I’m all over the place and ramble.
Summarized backstory, I’m 30F, my brother is 28. Our dad died when I was 3, he was 1. Mom never remarried, or even dated. My brother has always been the golden child who can do no wrong, while I could rarely do anything right in my moms eyes. When I was 16 I was in 2 Military programs (by my own choice) was a leader in both, assistant editor of the yearbook, and was involved in a variety of different community service projects. My brother at 16 was selling weed, living alone at my moms rental apartments during the summer, constantly getting in trouble in school, many fights outside of school, and eventually having a bunch of run ins with cops ((all of which my mom claimed wasn’t my brothers fault, the cops just had it out for him. -_-)) If you were to ask my mom who was the more difficult, out of control, misbehaved child at that time, she’ll tell you it was me.
To my moms credit, in later years she has had moments of being kind and there for me, but only when my brother isn’t around. The closest she and I have ever been was when he moved 1000 miles away and rarely talked to her, that was a few years ago. It was just us living together, and I stupidly was lured into a false sense of security, thinking she finally saw us equally. Obviously I’m a fool.
So this is the story I really came here to tell and to hopefully get perspective on. So it basically starts over 15 years ago, I wanted a cell phone real bad for my 14th birthday (like any socially active high school girl) It’s genuinely the only thing I ever asked/begged my mom for, and I had been asking for probably 2 years. My mom would tell me over and over how I was too young. It sucked because I was literally the only 1 in my friend group without a cell. So imagine my excitement when on my birthday I open my gift to see a cell phone box!! I jumped up and down, I hugged my mom screaming thank you over and over and my mom and brother laughed. I assumed they were laughing at how over the top excited I was, and I guess they were, but for another reason. I finally calmed down, and with shaking hands opened the box to find...a fake dollar store kiddie cell phone, my face dropped, and my mom and brother laughed harder. I was beyond crushed, hurt, and humiliated. I sat there silently, using all my energy to focus on not crying. Then my mom said, “what? You wanted a phone, there you go.” And kept laughing. I couldn’t hold it in anymore and started crying, which pissed her off. She told me I was ruining my birthday by being a brat, she got me some clothes, I was being ungrateful and if I couldn’t stop crying to go to my room. Which is what I did. They ate my cake without me.
Well last year, I was at my moms house. The next day was a wedding, my brothers friend, and a friend of mine were getting married, so we were all invited, including my mom. My mom and I were waiting for my brother to arrive, she was talking about my aunt who is really high strung, (she often compares me to this aunt, and not in a positive way) and talking about the pranks her and her dad would play on this aunt, which sounded more cruel than funny to me. I asked her if she thinks all of those pranks had something to do with how my aunt is today and laughing my mom said (a little too proudly) “probably.” And I said, “can’t you see how you and my brother have done the same to me? “ she got defensive at first, claimed she never did anything like that, so I told her of the fake cell phone story. (As well as a few other examples, but the cell was the main one) Afterwards she said she didn’t remember ever doing those things. I told her “Bully’s don’t often remember the pain they inflict on others, but those ‘pranks’ had a lasting effect on me when it comes to trust, hope, and expectations. Over 15 years later and it still hurts to think about. You always get on me because I never tell you what I want for Christmas or my birthday, why would I? I learned my lesson to never get my hopes up with you.” Guys, she actually apologized!! I thought we were at a turning point! I thought she was finally starting to see that she didn’t always treat me as well as she thought, that her and my brother often teamed up against or left me out and it damaged me and our dynamic, that she was finally starting to acknowledge the damage her actions caused!
Until the next night, that is. Mom, brother, brothers gf and I are all sitting around having a really great time talking and laughing. There was a moment of silence in the conversations, and I don’t know what possessed her to do it, but all off a sudden she loudly exclaims to my brother “oh! So guess what OP told me about last night which you and I are apparently going to hell for, do you remember...” and asked him if he remembered about the ‘prank’. If I ever needed confirmation it was a messed up prank, I saw it all over my brothers GFs face. She looked appalled that my mom thought that was funny, she even asked sympathetically “did you at least get a real phone after their laugh?” To which I said no. I think my brother realized that his GF didn’t think it was funny and became slightly embarrassed, because he did try to just say “no, I don’t remember, but we probably did it.” And leave it at that, but my mom kept bringing it up while laughing until I finally had to sternly say “we discussed this last night, and there’s no reason to bring it up now, we were having a nice time, let’s change the subject.” Things were awkward after that, and we all just went to bed. My mom tried to blame me for making things awkward, but I ripped into her about how she did that when she brought up a topic she knew would cause me to be upset.
I’ve since been trying to figure out my moms motive for why she would tell me she was sorry, sincerely look it, then not even 24 hours later try to laugh at me with my brother over it all over again. Like she can’t say she didn’t think it would hurt me, she KNEW it would. I told her it still hurt 15 years later, she can’t possibly think that in 24 hrs that pain magically went away. She knew I wouldn’t laugh about it with them when she brought it up. I keep asking her why she did it and she just says “I don’t know,” and tells me to move on. I told her that wasn’t good enough, went NC for months, and now she’s harassing my husband to get me to contact her. I gave in once, and she scolded me and told me I’m not allowed to not speak to her, no matter how upset I am.
I just don’t know what to do. I can’t be around someone who is going to continue to say things to hurt me, who can’t respect my feelings. Mentally, I’m weak as hell right now. If it wasn’t for medication, therapy, and my husband, then simply put, I’d be with my dad. I can’t handle my mom, as well as all the other drama her family brings with it (my manipulate narcissistic grandma, alcoholic aunt, alcoholic priest Uncle, and racist arrogant cousins, no one in the family believes in the importance of Mental Health, and shame those with mental illness, like myself). I just don’t know what to tell my mom to get her to see that I need space to heal. Not forever, but for now. She won’t change. That family won’t change. So I need to get to a stronger place where I can handle all their nonsense without it effecting me. I genuinely wish I could cut them all out for good, but I do have 1 cousin whom I love, whose fighting cancer that will inevitably end up taking her within a few years. She lives with my mom. I can’t have a relationship with my cousin, without having to put up with the others, so complete NC just isn’t a possibility right now.
Im open to any advice (just please be kind, like I said, I’m not exactly at my strongest mentally) if you stuck with me this long, thanks for reading, and just in case it needs to be said, please don’t share this on any other sites or subs, thank you. Sorry again if this is just a bunch of rambling.

  • Akira Maeda announced that he’s restarting the Universal Wrestling Federation (the Japan version, not the one Bill Watts had) and they’re running their first show at Korauken Hall on May 12. Nobuhiko Takada and Kazuo Yamazaki, along with Yoji Anjo, Tetsuo Nakano, and Shigeo Miyato are also going with Maeda. All of them are members of the original organization, which closed in September 1985. The official announcement was set for April 8, but the story broke early. Expect matches to be in the style of the original UWF, focusing on a hard martial arts style of kicks and holds with next to no showmanship. UWF lasted 17 months in its original incarnation and gathered a cult following in Tokyo, but it couldn’t draw on the road because they had no tv and the style was fairly impenetrable to all but the hardest core fans. Like, I love Shayna Baszler, but I also don’t want an entire promotion of Shayna Baszlers, and that’s UWF. Anyway, they’re not going to do tours like the other big promotions in Japan, but rather do a big show each month in the big cities only. Their next planned show in Tokyo after the return isn’t until August, and they won’t hit Osaka until December. Back in November Maeda shot on Riki Choshu, breaking two bones under his eye and getting Maeda suspended, before ultimately getting fired on March 1 after he wouldn’t come to terms on a new contract. Dave expects UWF 2.0 to have a hard time making it with only one show a month and videotape as their only revenue streams (yeah, tapes are too expensive for the PWG model to work).
  • And tying into all this, Takada and Yamazaki’s last match in New Japan saw another shoot incident. On March 19 in Korauken Hall, they wrestled Kuniaki Kobayashi and Norio Honaga, and Kobayashi slapped Yamazaki hard at the opening bell. Since he apparently was already going to quit, Yamazaki then shot on Kobayashi, kicking him in the face and they then brawled until several wrestlers broke them up. Later on he tried again when Kobayashi had Takada in an abdominal stretch.
Watch: Takada and Yamazaki vs. Honaga and Kobayashi
  • Outside that news, the world of wrestling is quiet in the post-Wrestlemania season. WWF will have tv tapings on April 21 in New Haven and April 22 in Springfield, Massachusetts, as well as a Saturday Night’s Main Event taping that week and a Madison Square Garden show on the 25th. The line-up for the New Haven taping has DiBiase vs. Beefcake, Savage defending against Andre, Honkytonk vs. Bigelow (may not happen, since Bigelow underwent double knee surgery last week), and Strike Force vs. Demolition. It’ll be interesting to see what kind of rating they pull for an entire show without Hogan.
  • WWF released information on their internal projections for Wrestlemania IV, and in hindsight they’re laughable. They anticipated a gross of $40 million when adding the gate, ppv, closed circuit, and projected videotape sales. As for their reports on what they did take: they’re claiming $1.5 million for the live gate (probably accurate, if you include the site fee Donald Trump paid), $20 million on ppv (they’re claiming a 9.8 buyrate), and $4 million incoming from the 100,000 video tapes they project selling. (Dave’s been told that’s never going to happen). Even adding up those figures, you fall ludicrously short of their projected $40 million, and yet publications are running with the numbers and even the $40 million number and not even bothering to add things up. And that really gives proof to the fact that it does not matter what the actual numbers are for WWF - they are entirely built up on image, and the whole wrestling business is too, for that matter. WWF needs to claim Wrestlemania IV was a bigger success than Wrestlemania III for three key reasons: 1. Advertisers and the media have predicted the end of the “wrestling fad” since the beginning and anything that would make them think it actually is dropping off will make sponsors drop WWF real quick, 2. WWF can’t allow an image of failure (and let’s be clear, Wrestlemania IV wasn’t a failure, it just wasn’t as successful as projected), and 3. It keeps people from looking into why it wasn’t as successful as projected. Now, the reasons there are that the tournament as an idea wasn’t as strong as they thought it would be and that weakens the image of Vince as a genius, but he can’t be blamed here because it looked like a good idea until the ticket sales numbers started coming in. And if someone got the idea that Crockett’s show hurt them, well that makes them competition, and WWF’s official company line is that there is no competition to them. So if you’re WWF, you have to project strength on all fronts and positive momentum no matter what, and in a way that’s what keeps them running - the momentum of their own image of success is more powerful than the reality of their actual numbers. And since to the wider world Wrestlemania was not a failure and Crockett doesn’t even exist, that might just be the biggest hurdle they have to overcome and should be Crockett’s number one goal. And indeed, WWF/WWE has always managed to keep a stranglehold on the public image of wrestling in the United States, even in the Monday Night Wars to an extent, as evidenced by the many times WCW’s contributions would be ignored or even labeled as WWF stuff.
  • Syndicated ratings for the week ending March 20 had WWF at number 3 with an 11.2 All-Star Wrestling network (AWA, Memphis, Pro Wrestling this Week, POWW, GLOW) got an 8.6 and 6th place, while Crockett had a 7.8 for 7th place.
  • The third Crockett Cup takes place on April 22 and 23 in Greenville, SC and Greensboro, NC, and it’s the least hyped yet. The Crocketts are projecting a sellout and $307,000 at the gate, and advance sales have been good, but Dave gets the feeling it might be too soon to run a big show after a big show, since it’s hard to get a crowd up in interest again so soon after a big peak point for interest. And then there’s the build, which has been awful. Flair vs. Koloff, the main event for the second night, won’t even be announced until April 16, like it’s a throwaway. Midnight Rider vs. JJ Dillon in a bullrope match probably won’t be announced until then too, and not even all the teams for the Cup have been announced yet, let alone the bracket. Dave knows about 14 teams, some of which haven’t been announced officially, and they have every name guy there is in the company, which means ten teams of jobbers. And that’s going to make the Greenville taping suck. Much better to limit things to 16 teams, but that’s not the Crockett way.
  • Gordon Solie leaving Global may be the biggest burial Dave’s ever seen. Bob Roop, the face commentator, talked about Solie as a once-great announcer and former legend who has absolutely lost it, while Red Roberts played heel and “portrayed Solie as someone who never [was] what he appeared to be” and said he was a “very ordinary man who was a different person when the camera was off.” They referenced little off-camera remarks Solie would make denigrating fans and brought up all the jobs he’s lost in the past few years (TBS, Pro Wrestling This Week, Championship Wrestling from Florida, which really isn’t a lot in wrestling, but whatever). Obviously, lots of hard feelings about Solie quitting Global to go work with Steve Keirn and Jerry Jarrett in their proposed Florida promotion.
  • Central States is now working with World Class to get big names for their big shows, and the first outing of this joint venture was a total disaster. It mostly comes down to the World Class guys not being able to get enough work in Texas. Anyway, they had Mike George defend the “World” title against Chris Adams, and George accidentally hit Adams really hard in the face with a dropkick. He broke Adams’ cheekbone and nose, and knocked out several teeth as well. No word on how long Adams will be out of action, but he’s going to have to have reconstructive surgery. Considering he just came back from a broken hand (which didn’t heal correctly in the first place), he may have the doctors re-break it to let it heal correctly.
  • Stampede had a near sellout in Calgary on April 1. The main event had Owen Hart and Jason the Terrible vs. Johnny Smith and Makhan Singh in a street fight (Owen and Jason won by DQ, so I guess those are possible in Calgary street fights). Everybody bled and Kerry Brown and Rip Rogers ran in to attack Owen and Jason, which caused the disqualification. At one point Smith hit Jason with a 45 gallon drum. For April 8 they announced an eight-man street fight, but due to the mayhem the Calgary Boxing and Wrestling Commission is refusing to authorize a street fight, so it’s going to be a regular eight-man tag match.
  • May 9 in Memphis is going to be Jerry Lawler night. They’ll have Curt Hennig defending the AWA World Title against Lawler, and if Lawler loses he’ll retire from wrestling. Their April4 stretcher match drew 6,500 on the strength of $1 student tickets. Lawler was going to win, until Scotty the Body (the future Raven) interfered ineffectively, and Eddie Gilbert came out after and used chloroform to knock Lawler out and put him on the stretcher. A riot almost broke out. On April 9 Scotty and Lawler had a grudge match where Scotty would get a date with Missy Hyatt if he won. He lost, bad, and Missy slapped him, and he’s back as a babyface since Lawler saved him from a beat down afterwards.
  • Dave hears that AWA is trying to get out of being a wrestling promotion and operate more as a booking office. The idea is to showcase as many wrestlers as they can on the Las Vegas tapes, use ESPN to sell shows for local promoters, and farm their talent out. We’ll see how that goes.
  • AWA is bringing some dude named Diamond Dallas Page in to manage Diamond and Tanaka. Ricky Morton and Robert Gibson are apparently also being booked out of the AWA now, which should end rumors of them going to the WWF.
  • Bob Orton signed a three year contract with New Japan.
  • Fabulous Lance still hasn’t arrived in World Class.
  • Correction on the description of the King Parsons title win in World Class. Black Bart and Buddy Roberts weren’t shining flashlights in fans’ faces when the lights went out.
  • New Japan had no tv for the past three weeks but returns on April 16 in a 4 pm to 5 pm Saturday timeslot. It’s going to get pre-empted regularly for the rest of the year due to TV Asahi having other sports they have higher on their priority list.
  • The departures from New Japan in the wake of the UWF announcement have them hurting pretty bad for roster depth.
  • Bob Orton’s getting over well in the small towns with his Billy Gasper the pirate gimmick. He’s doing lots of clowning around and that works in the small towns. It’s going poorly with the Tokyo fans, though.
  • Masa Saito did an interview on March 18 saying the guys in the pirate masks aren’t real pirates and he’ll bring real pirates to New Japan. Orton then did an interview and said they were real pirates, and said a third Gasper brother named Barry coming to Japan.
  • Two more All Japan Women retirements have been announced. Kazue Nagahori (age 19) and Condor Saito (age 20) announced their impending retirements on April 2. That brings us to 7 women leaving the promotion since December (including Dump Matsumoto, Yukari Omori, and Devil Masami). Losing Dump has done a huge number on their ratings - Dump’s retirement show drew a 13.2 (compared to an average range from 8.5-11.5), but their first show without her drew a 5.7.
  • The Jumping Bomb Angels returned to AJW and were billed as WWF Tag Team champions. They’re defending the titles over there right now. We’re a couple months from Moolah getting the titles and division killed off.
  • All Japan is building toward an April 15 match between Genichiro Tenryu and Bruiser Brody to unify the singles titles. Tenryu has the United National and PWF Titles and Brody has the International Title. This doesn’t go anywhere. This issue’s street date is one year to the day before the Triple Crown Championship is established.
  • Tom Magee is wrestling preliminary matches in All Japan, and Dave gives an overview of his career thus far. He debuted in October 1985 and everyone thought he’d be a future superstar. Built like Lex Luger, strong as an ox (he’s a three time winner of World’s Strongest Man competitions), 6’5” and north of 270 lbs, and experienced in gymnastics and karate so agile as all hell. On paper, he’s kind of like Lesnar: just a freak specimen of an athlete. Only, unlike Lesnar he couldn’t transition that into learning to wrestle even a lick. He started out in Stampede and his very first match was his best because he just kept getting worse. He had a terrible match in Japan against Riki Choshu where a spark of potential might have shone for a millisecond. WWF signed him and debuted him in a match against Bret Hart, and Hart made him look incredible and Vince was convinced he had the guy to replace Hogan., only to find out later that the match was all Bret and nobody else knew what to do to make him look good. They had him on the C string house show tours with no improvement in sight, and he left to go do strength stuff in Europe. Unlike Ultimate Warrior, whose build is similar and wrestling ability is even more negligible, Magee had no charisma or personality to save him. So 2.5 years after supposedly being the next Hogan, he’s still no better than he was on his first match and has no discernible future in the wrestling business. The match is on the WWE Network on the special Holy Grail: The Search for WWE’s Most Infamous Lost Match.

  • Vince McMahon is trying to get lobbyist support to abolish the Washington State Athletic Commission.
  • April 2 in San Juan Puerto Rico drew 10,000 for WWC with Hercules Ayala beating Carlos Colón to retain the Universal Title by disqualification. On the same card, Invader #1 (fuck Invader #1) regained the TV title from Super Black Ninja (Keiji Muto).
  • Madusa Miceli is doing a test shoot for Playboy. Playboy’s wanted to do a spread with a pro wrestling personality, but several women have turned them down and Dave won’t name names, but you can probably guess accurately anyway if you know the major women in the business right now. I can’t decide if the extremely minimal coverage Dave gives American women’s wrestling at this point is an advantage in guessing (if you go by Dave’s coverage, Candi Divine, Sherri Martel, Medusa, Rockin’ Robin, The Glamour Girls, the Jumping Bomb Angels, Precious, Missy Hyatt, Misty Blue, Baby Doll, and Elizabeth are basically the only women in the United States), or if it’s an indictment of his coverage of women’s wrestling. Anyway, Medusa does the shoot, but doesn’t authorize release because she gets an offer to do a tour with AJW, and with the strict code of conduct in Japan for performers, she made the smart move for her career here.
  • Northeast Championship Wrestling is trying to get Iron Sheik and Sergeant Slaughter together for a match. The big wrench in the works there is Vince McMahon. If Sheik can clean up his act, he’s likely to get re-signed by Vince because McMahon still sees some cartoon villain value in him on the lower card.
  • Everything in Global is still revolving around the Dr. Red Roberts and V.C. Minh vs. Col. Kirchner and G.I. Joe Palardy feud. But worry not, they’ve got a guy named Steve Collins who’s turning heel because he’s got two valets called the party girls, and one (Dominique) is a heel. The other is apparently the hottest valet in the business right now, and I cannot believe that sentence is basically verbatim.
  • We get a letter from a graduate student in the radio-tv department at Auburn University (nowadays he’s a professor at Union University) who wants to offer his professional take on Clash and Wrestlemania. He says Clash definitely wins for best show and Sting/Flair wins best match, then runs down positives and negatives for each. For Wrestlemania, the camera setup, lighting, roster, Ventura, and quality finals are all big pluses for the show, and the venue had the requisite glitz and Bob Uecker fit in well with the zany cast of characters as well. For Clash, the big pluses were solid feuds, minimal Dusty, better lighting than their previous shows, good use of interview segments, Bob Caudle, three really excellent main event level matches, limited ad breaks, Jim Ross emerging as the best commentator in the company, better wrestlers, and a really hot crowd from start to finish. Negatives for Wrestlemania include Gorilla Monsoon’s cliches, the unwieldy tournament, too long a card, a weak main event compared to the match they had on Saturday Night’s Main Event (it seemed rushed for time), and the non-tournament matches were largely garbage, leading the whole show to feel unfocused, confused, and unprepared compared to Wrestlemania 3. Clash had some minuses as well though: too many crowd reaction shots, timing miscues on shots going wide, why were Jason Hervey and Ken Osmond at the judges’ table, the cop-out finish to the main event (they could have saved it with Osmond playing his character to break a 2-2 tie for Flair), maybe a bit more context on a couple things like Dusty/Tully/Magnum would have helped out, and they could have really used a video package for FlaiSting to set the stage for new viewers. He rates both shows out of five on several fronts. For overall production, Wrestlemania wins 4.5 to 4 over Clash. For match quality, Clash gets 4.5 to Wrestlemania’s 2. For crowd enthusiasm, Clash wins 5 to Wrestlemania’ 1.5. Clash gets 4 (for Jim Ross) and Wrestlemania gets 3 (for Ventura) on announcing. For overall excellence, Clash wins 5 to Wrestlemania’s 2, leading to overall totals of Wrestlemania 12.5/25 to Clash’s 22.5/25.
  • The rest of the letters are more thoughts on Wrestlemania and Clash. You can guess fairly accurately that the vast majority agree Clash was better. One ridiculously long letter takes a contrarian view and tries to argue that Flair looked like a sad, tired old man and the match gave him all the Sting he’ll ever need to see for the rest of his life.
  • In Global, there’s a team called Death Row and they beat up a plant in the audience. Dave thinks this is the stupidest angle ever, because why would fans buy tickets if they think it puts them in danger of getting beat up by the wrestlers for no reason?
  • Also Global, Rusty Brooks and Jumbo Barretta won the tag titles in a match where they were on opposite teams. Brooks was teamed with Tom Nash and Barretta with Matt Oddo, and somehow Brooks and Nash won when Barretta wouldn’t get in the ring to fight Brooks, but somehow Brooks and Barretta wound up becoming champions out of it. Nobody understands what happened.
  • Joe Pedicino is running a 20 hour wrestling telethon on May 28 to benefit the Atlanta Police Department. It won’t be just wrestling - there will be some movies and sports interspersed in. So I guess it’s not exactly a 20 hour wrestling telethon, now, is it, Dave?
  • So that Hogan movie? Not a biopic. It’s going to star Hogan and the story will be built around a toughman contest. Dave notes that every movie with that concept has bombed. Well, Dave’s wrong about this being a toughman movie, but he’s right about it bombing. We’re at least somewhat conceptually closer to No Holds Barred, at least.
  • Roddy Piper signed a three movie deal with John Carpenter for several million dollars. Good for Piper, but he needs to hope his movies continue to do well - one flop and Hollywood is likely to move on from him and the other movies will likely be forgotten.
  • WWF has done some spring cleaning. S.D. Jones, Iron Mike Sharpe, Sika, Outback Jack, Hillbilly Jim, Johnny V, and Terry Gibbs are all gone. Craig De George, an announcer, is also gone.
  • Vince McMahon is privately blaming himself for Wrestlemania not being as successful as expected. Particularly, he’s beating himself up for letting the creative slide. Is this where the beginning of the creative slide that gets us to the New Generation doldrums began? I don’t know, so I guess we might see.
  • NWA Main Event is the new big show, so obviously the best way to build it up is to have it pre-empted four weeks in a row right after it debuts. Yep. Atlanta Braves baseball has kicked NWA Main Event from its timeslot for the next few weeks and it wound up on at 11 am Saturday, so nobody saw it. There were apparently some good matches this week, and Dave promises to talk about the show and some of its production snafus next week.
  • Last week Dave incorrectly reported that Brad Armstrong had knee surgery. He didn’t. He just took off the week to rest up, but his knee is messed up and he probably should get surgery.
  • [NWA] Midnight Rider (Dave calls him Midlife Rider) debuted on the tv tapings on April 10. If you somehow don’t know, it’s Dusty. Anyway, he came in on a horse with Magnum T.A. leading the horse, then came out later and choked Tully Blanchard with a lasso.
  • The April 30 Saturday Night’s Main Event will be taped on April 22. They’re taping an episode of Wrestling Challenge too, so expect a 5 hour card if you’re there live. And bring a pillow, because this sounds dreadful: Savage vs. Gang for the title, Honkytonk vs. Beefer for the title, Bulldogs vs. Demolition non-title, DiBiase vs. Muraco, and Andre vs. Jake the Snake.
  • Big John Studd was set to return to WWF, but has pushed his planned return back to the fall. Push that back until December. It’ll be Studd’s final run in the company and it’s only going to last until June next year, but at least he’ll have a Royal Rumble win out of it. After that he’ll do occasional independent dates and retire in 1990 after discovering he has Hodgkin's Lymphoma.
NEXT WEEK: Big shows being built, New Japan coming to American tv?, more in-depth poll results analysis, and more

2020.09.23 08:54 MothOfTyrants Mix practice is essential! Im an idiot!

I've been going IN this year learning to track, mix, etc....ive been a touring musician more than half my life and have been to multiple studios and watched some masterminds in the box, both local and professional! Joey Sturgis back in 2008, JST Tones prestigious head honcho... Jamie King in late 2009 from NC, highly praised as one of the best in metal for years with good reason! Give or take an album or so, he has done Between the Buried and Mes entire discography. 90 percent of what I knew going into music production, I learned over the shoulder of those two honkies. They introduced me to my greatest passion to date, I love tracking, mixing, sound design, etc ....its euphoric to me and its borderline unhealthy how much I've been immersed in this scene. Big props to everyone on this reddit, ive learned so much here and love you all for answering questions, no matter how trivial they may seem in your shoes. The community is incredible <3
But enough Peter Puffin....I didn't come here to ramble forever. Just to comment that I recently found numerous multitrack websites through this reddit, and I've been so involved in creating my own music and just having fun with friends over the past year that I overlooked the opportunities and definitely didn't realize the benefits I'd been passing up.
To anyone stuck in a rut with original material or just hitting roadblocks in general in your pursuit of greatness...find some multitracks online and get lost in foreign material ASAP! It opened my eyes, Ive not had a chance to truly apply much of the knowledge ive gained over the past few months, opening my own template and recording two guitar tracks and programming bass and drums over and over again. It seems common sense, but im sure alot like myself, overlook the opportunity. Its easy to get overwhelmed, but once you drop into a session im sure everyone of us will have fun and learn from our own actions.
Cambridge Multitracks is the site I went to, all free, many genres and bands to choose from. There is something for us all. Friendly reminder to give it a try, and take my enthusiasm to try and convince you all to try it as reason enough to dive in if skeptical. Im rejuvenated its like I hit the reset button and can look from many different angles. Thanks to everyone and whoever it was that pointed out this website...you all kick ass. HMU if you're looking for someone to bounce ideas off of and write some originals. DM me anytime, I need new homies to jam with

2020.09.22 18:51 ZebrasnOreos Post breakup mistakes that I've made that you shouldn't.

I apologise for bad formatting in advance, I'm a long time lurker - but I have never written a post before.
Some context: I got dumped out of the blue by my girlfriend of 3 years just over 7 months ago - on Valentines Day of all days. It came out of nowhere, and took me by total shock. It was also through a text message. Great.
I was undoubtedly destroyed due to the whole ordeal. I initiated NC and it was only ever broken by her. I welcomed her messages - this was mistake 1. No contact means no contact. Don't break it - it'll only hurt you more. It'll make you think, "they contacted me, they might still be interested."
We met up and watched a movie in March. She said she had no one else to go with and really wanted to watch the movie. I went with her - this was mistake 2. Meeting them is risky. You'll either see that they've moved on/starting to move on when you're still thinking about them, or that they're mostly impartial to the whole situation. This will only delay your healing and make you think - "what if there is a chance again?"
Mistake 3? We hooked up. She initiated the idea. Even though deep down I knew it was a bad idea, I went with it. Why is this a mistake? Because she came out of it neutral - as if there was nothing between us before. Hell, she even pointed out that she's been on dating sites and is searching for a new boyfriend. And then there I am, feeling like a piece of trash, listening to her say all of that. I felt used and disgusted. All that time I spent thinking things could be recoverable, and that there's still a chance. Day in, day out - morning through to night, all I thought of was her. To think I was nothing but a toy that she could use whilst she finds someone else - yeah that felt like a bullet through the chest.
All I can say is, I'm back on square one. I am an idiot. I am suffering a lot. Everything hurts.
I am writing this to prevent this situation from happening to other people. Please. Don't do what I did. Learn from my mistakes.
I wish you guys the best. Be strong - for I wasn't.

2020.09.19 21:15 Koiukin NC Restart - Day 1 (long read, I know, but please someone read. This hurts)

I'll try to explain this as best as I can without coming off too depressing (despite the fact that I'm VERY depressed over this). My somewhat-boyfriend and I (M, 28) broke up last Monday.
About two and a half months ago, I met this guy through a 'hook-up' app (yes, it starts with a G). What kind of started out as an initial flirty suggestive conversation ended up in about 4 hours of messaging back and forth about interests, dating in the current city we live in, what we do for a living, etc. We make the decision to actually meet (and whether or not it leads into a fling, that would depend on the mood). He came over to my apartment at 11 PM, keeping his distance (because, ya know. Social distancing) with a couple of bottles of alcohol. We ended up staying up until 5 AM, talking about everything we could possibly think of. It didn't end in a hook up, so I kind of took that as a good sign.
The next day, we started making plans to hang out, dinner, watch a movie, etc. I went over to his house, everything went incredibly well. We ended up playing Switch for hours, almost into the wee hours of the morning (again). After a while, I had to cut things short because I had work early the next morning. He lead me to the door, looked at me and said, "Do you mind if I, uhh, just go for it?" Boom. First kiss. I don't remember the drive home because I was floating.
Fast forward a bit, we had spent a good chunk of time together (hours on the weekends, sometimes even in the middle of the week). Things were going SO well. Things were physically intimate (not going into detail), but somewhat frequently. On the third night we hung out, we had the awkward "I'm not going to hook up with other people" conversation on either side, and both seemed to be in agreement. I deleted the app from my phone, and that was that. Well, the following week, one of my friends had alerted me to the fact that his profile was still active, and he had changed his tag line to 'Bi FWB?'.
This kind of rattled me a bit, so that weekend I asked him about it. He said that he still used the app to swap pictures with other people (redflag? yuuuuup). When he saw how visibly uncomfortable I was, he said "It doesn't bother me at all if you want me to delete the app. You can ask that." He also assured me that I could, at any point, look at his phone to see who he's talking to. I declined, saying that I didn't want to be that guy. By this point in my life, I had been through a few relationships where the person I was with either wasn't faithful or they lied. Despite my brain screaming at me to cut it off then and there, I let things go. His response was enough to help me feel more secure in where things were going......right? Wrong.
The next week, my friend told me that he saw his profile active AGAIN (mind you, my friends know about my past relationships, so they tend to be a little bit more on the protective side). So, again, I called him and confronted him. I explained that I would feel better if we put the situation to rest, and while I didn't want to be the 'controlling' boyfriend, it made me uncomfortable because it's sending mixed messages. We had agreed by this point even further to be exclusive, even if we weren't putting a direct label on it. He said that he would delete the app, and that was that. Still, I felt uneasy.
I recently received a job offer from a major technology corporation (not saying which for anonymity sake). He was very excited for me, and we ended up 'throwing back a few drinks' to celebrate before he left for his home town for the weekend. While we were cuddling on the couch, he pulled out his phone to show me a video, and I thought that I had seen the icon for the same EVIL app (hahaha). My stomach flipped. On my way out the door, I told him, "I know that I said I don't want to be that guy....but do you have the app on your phone again?" He kind of laughed, went to grab his phone and showed me. To my relief (and extreme embarrassment) the app wasn't there. I apologized PROFUSELY. He laughed it off, saying it was no big deal. I even texted him when I got home saying how sorry I was.
This SHOULD have put my mind at ease. But did it? Nope. The day before he came home, in a moment of COMPLETE anxiety and insecurity, I downloaded the app. You can adjust the search area on the app, and I knew where he was visiting. When I looked up his town, nothing popped up. There was one profile that mentioned 'Bi Guy', but the age was much lower than he was (it said 23, he's 31). So I didn't think anything of it. Fast forward next day, he's texting me saying he's leaving to come home, and that he'll let me know when he gets back so we can hang out. Around the time he was supposed to be home, I thought to myself, "Okay. This'll be the last time I check, and if his profile isn't there, I'm putting this whole thing to rest and I'm going to put these insecurities to rest."
I pulled up the app. The same 'Bi Guy' profile that was once 250 miles away was now 2 miles away. Everything went so cold. I panicked. I called my friend, my mind going 10000 miles/minute. She tells me to calm down, go over and ask him about it. So I do just that, and just as I'm pulling into his driveway, I check the app again. Distance - 33 feet. I almost started crying. I went in to his house, he gave me the usual kiss on the way in, we sit on his couch and I ask him if I can show him something. He nods, and I pull up the app and show him the exact profile that is now less than 12 feet away. He stays quiet for a moment, then nods. "Yeah, that's me. I'm not going to deny it."
I tell him that I don't know how I should take this, and he kind of shrugs it off and says, "I use the app more so like a porn site, like someone would use Pornhub." Again, he tries to assure me that he wasn't hooking up with other people. But then the conversation kind of shifts - he starts getting more noticeably nervous, his words are a little more thought out. He says, "I was waiting for the right time to have this discussion with you, but I suppose now is good of time as any. I don't see this going on long term." By this point, I couldn't say that I was shocked, because I had a feeling on how this was going. He told me that I reminded him too much of his ex fiancé in the sense that she was too insecure, and despite the fact that they tried to work on it, he broke it off.
I guess I should have prefaced this earlier - I do suffer from General Anxiety Disorder, Major Depressive Disorder and PTSD (yes, I'm in counseling). Apparently, my worried behavior reminded him too much of his ex that it killed off any romantic feelings he had towards me. Which, in hindsight, I'm glad that he did it when he did, because if this had gone on for longer (years?), this would have been significantly harder to process. But even in such a short amount of time (quality, not quantity), I had fallen for this guy so hard. And I thought we were on the same page, despite my insecurities.
I managed to convince him to take a step back and think about this, to REALLY think about this. Despite the fact that I was lied to, I was somehow still the one apologizing and trying to make things work. He wasn't trying to gaslight me into thinking that I was the one who caused this, because he completely admitted fault for lying and for being the one who couldn't get past his hang ups (despite the fact that I was actively working with therapy to get through mine).
We push off the conversation until Wednesday - I was full of hope, but cautious because I knew how this could end. And it ended the way I expected it - he did not change his decision. He indicated multiple times that he didn't want to lose me as a friend, that I was still a great guy that he wanted to be around, just not romantically. I have to respect that decision. So I told him we could try (stupid me, eh). As the week and weekend progressed, I became more and more uncomfortable. My anxiety was triggered by the smallest of things (we weren't texting too terribly much, but a message from him was enough to send me). I was crying for the guy. We had a few conversations since, where I was asking him to reconsider. Each time, he became more and more frustrated and obstinate. Saturday, I hung up on him and (admittedly) I unloaded on him.
I wanted to respect his decision, but it felt that he was honestly giving up on me before I had a chance to work through my shit and develop a more 'secure attachment' (don't get me started on our conversations regarding attachment theory). I stopped talking to him for a few days with the intention of starting No Contact, but he was the only person that I wanted to talk to. So I was dumb, and a few days ago I broke NC. We tried to stay friendly, but I feel like hell. Anyways, it ended yesterday, when I told him abruptly that I didn't think it was a good idea to be friends. We texted back and forth for a moment, him telling me that he didn't like this, but understood why I had to detach - I told him I was afraid he wouldn't be there when I was ready to come back to the 'friendship. He didn't commit either way.
So, as of yesterday evening, I am back in NC with him. I've deleted everything - 800+ text messages, his phone number, removed him from my social media (even Discord). I sent his number to a friend for safe keeping (IF and when I'm ready). This f**king sucks. Yes, I understand that I was foolish to fall so quickly for this guy in a short time, but we spent a LOT of quality time together in this time. We had both explored kind of darker parts of ourselves. My heart hurts, and I don't know how to get him out of my head.
Thoughts? Help?

2020.09.19 14:06 sexsprinkle I'm still sad. People who were accused of cheating and didn't do it, what did you do and how do you feel?

I'm almost at a year of NC and the BU. I've been having a panic attack and feel like crying. I can't breathe and I'm shaking. My heart is pounding through my chest. I really can't believe he's gone. He didn't check up on me not once. He is however going on a website we met on. It's not a dating site. It's more of a social gaming site. He said going on it is a waste of time and hasn't been on since 2017. So why is he going on there now. Not sure if it's breadcrumbing. I don't want that to give me hope but it is. I still have this pain. After an almost 7 year LDR. My mind is trained to think about him constantly. This isn't fair. I can't believe something like this happened to me. Now I'm wondering if he really did love me after all we went through. I just need someone to talk to. But I don't want to retell my story over and over again. Because some people either agree with me, or think I'm the bad person. The way some people think are just so bizarre. Like no one will truly understand me. I have no one who went through what I went through. I'm accused of cheating when I didn't do it.
For the dumpees, if you've been accused of cheating and been broken up with, how do to cope with it? I'm finding it hard to deal with the injustice.

2020.09.19 04:42 crabbyonejohn Help with missing package

I need help dealing with an issue with FedEx. I purchased a laptop screen to fix one so a kid could go back to school. Item shipped with 2 day delivery and was on delivery truck Thursday 8/13/20 but never delivered. Next day the web site says delivery date pending. I opened a claim and the following Wed-8/19/20, I get a call asking if it had been delivered. I said no and the rep said the claim would be escalated. Not 5 minutes later I get an email saying it was delivered the Thursday prior (8/13/20). I was home and they never came. Seller says it was delivered so no refund. On 9/1/20 FedEx closed the claim with no reason and didn't even review the info I sent (claim closed before I could send it).
Roll forward to 9/15/20-my mail carrier comes up and drops off a FedEx package she found on the side of the road. I open the package (water stained, beaten, abused) and the screen is destroyed. It looked like someone ran over it several times. The seller only has a 30 day return policy and we are past that already. I contact FedEx and since it was outside the 30 day damage policy, they say there is nothing they can do.
FWIW, the delivery came from the Kernersville, NC distribution center, so right off the bat, I knew there was trouble-they have lost shipments to me already this year. I am contemplating driving to the Kernersville distribution center (30 minute drive) and speaking with the manager and showing him the video of the USPS delivery woman bringing the FedEx package, email and and Ring videos of anyone entering my residence the day they claim it was delivered. Or should I give it to the local news who already did a story on the Kernersville plant and let them run with it? I am out the $80 either way, so I have nothing to loose. FedEx has already lost where I work as a delivery/shipping service and I have friends in the area that are boycotting them as well due to this.

If you're a caster I recommend copying Section 22 (for General) as well as I accidentally made early map rare non-priority caster weapon tighter than I intended. As always I recommend fully updating if you can.
Reminder to EDIT YOUR FUCKING FILTER before league starts; the filter is designed around this. The number of people I see using my filter for race practice without setting it up properly is a bit ridiculous. Watch the damn youtube video and edit section 1 as well as delete the levelling sections that don't apply to you. If you don't you will see a ton of stuff you will never pick up as well as hear sounds on tons of links that you don't care about.
Also remember that the chaos recipe is now disabled by default as of v3.11.5. If you want to do it then you need to delete the appropriate blocks in section 22 - read the comments. If you didn't update during Harvest you should absolutely read the patch notes from the updates I did during the league. I played Harvest a lot so there were 5 updates with a large number of total changes. The differences between the Harvest launch filters and the current filters are quite significant.
NOTICE: there are issues with the uploads on the main GGG site that are preventing me from uploading the Heist filters ahead of time (GGG's fault, not mine). Get them from the pastebins, they won't be on the actual GGG site until the patch is live
Major Changes and New Features:
  • Added highlighting for everything added in Heist.
Noteworthy Changes:
  • Relaxed a number of socket/link safety blocks due to the increased socket pressure of spellslinger and warcry builds.
  • Removed sound from the default div car tier in Uber
  • Shrunk font size on all veiled items in Uber
  • Removed Delirium Orb tiering. They don't drop often enough to justify separate tiers (and are always must pick up regardless).
  • Removed Cluster Jewel tiering. Without the ability to actually distinguish between number of passives any other tiering was useless. Low level cluster jewels that can't roll most notables (<50 ones) still have dimmed highlighting.
  • Shield charge color link blocks in Section 1 are now disabled by default
Icon Changes:
  • All map fragments now use brown raindrops. Karui splinters moved to orange raindrop
  • All fossils now use yellow circle minimap icons. Catalysts moved back to brown circles
  • Moved all fragments to brown triangles and scarabs to yellow triangles as brown hexagons now represent contracts/blueprints (treating them more or less as maps)
Minor Changes/Fixes:
  • Fixed General filter hiding low-tier rare wands and scepters sooner than intended (was 67, now 72)
  • Fixed breach rings showing in Uber
  • Fixed Underground affix single-resist rings missing a border
  • Further tiering adjustments to influenced highlighting
  • Cleaned up Section 21 a bit
  • 5L minimap icon now shows again in strict (still has no sound)
As usual, the best way to stay up to date on the filter is to follow the forum thread or to add me ingame. With the filter's increasing popularity, the best way to ask me questions about it is over my stream twitch.tv/sfhobbit as I simply cannot type while playing. Any lengthy inquiries will always be directed to the stream if it is online. Since I keep getting asked I have also finally set up a donation link for those who want to support the filter.

In the seven months Ingrid has been dating Dorothea, they’ve heard many stories of the Black Eagles. The BE’s are her family since she has none in blood, but Ingrid’s only met a handful of them. Now that they’re all in one place, it seems as good a time as any to meet them.

2020.09.12 14:48 tiny94x My ex had sex with me two weekends in a row, then booked a vacation with a girl a week later. I’m sick

I’m 26 and my ex is 31. We dated for a little over a year.
He was always hot and cold. One minute “baby I love you, I’ll be there for you for the rest of your life.” The next “you’re more serious about this than I am, I’m not ready.” Etc.... I had to really push him to commit to the relationship in the first place.
He lied a lot and did things behind my back. Exchanged pictures in bed with a girl (with clothes on, but sexy pose). Flirted/entertained almost anyone who came on to him. Talked against me to the one girl who especially wanted to break us up. Etc. He’s cheated on every girlfriend he’s ever had, and he’s also been on the end being the one a taken girl chests with. Nevertheless, I did feel a strong and warm bond with him and I saw many good qualities in him too.
He breaks up with me abruptly in February, siting that he doesn’t want a relationship. Wants to play the field. Ok. We went 5 months without seeing eachother- But never went for more than 10 days without texting- either he would break or I would break.
Then I start talking to him more about 6 weeks ago. He made it clear he doesn’t want a relationship still. We meet up to talk about things. He tells me he missed me so much, that he still felt a spark, he told me I looked so beautiful/hot etc. Alll this stuff- I wasn’t feeling well and he’s like “I’ll take care of you”. Anyway, we end up having sex, and then having sex the next weekend. Then he abruptly stops texting me as much. He’d still text “goodnight babe” up until last weekend but not much else.
I see on his venmo then he has a transaction with a girl for “vacation” (it’s literally 9 days since we had sex and I slept there). I confront him and he says he just met the girl in the past week (doubt it) and that he “sees potential with her.” I was shattered, I asked him if he wanted a relationship with her and he said “maybe.”
So he broke up with me and then used me for sex. Claimed he didn’t want anything serious. And now is thinking about it with this girl. I’m beside myself. I was and still am in love with him. I’ve never known this type of pain. I am going NC now. I will come here for support 😞

2020.09.11 00:04 CaptKutchiesTA The Kutchie's Key Lime Pie Mystery Part 1: Overview, Theories and Leads

The mystery of Captain Kutchie and his key lime pie has haunted the internet for over a decade now.It’s been extensively written on elsewhere, so I won’t spend long on the details I assume many already know, so check this link for some more in-depth info (https://www.reddit.com/UnresolvedMysteries/comments/9wo93c/other_an_indepth_look_at_kutchies_key_lime_pies/ )
The basis of the mystery though, is that since 2010, an individual or group has been writing cryptic, bizarrely written rants on various websites about a restaurant called Captain Kutchie’s Key West Cafe, usually focusing on either the key lime pies served at this restaurant, or the owner, Oswald “Kutchie” Paleaz. For a long time, it was unclear that Kutchie’s actually existed, but it was eventually discovered that the restaurant did exist, and was open from the 1970s until 2009, at the address 2227-2201 Asheville Hwy, Hendersonville, NC 2879. The messages about Kutchie’s have turned up in various places throughout the internet, but they usually share a common format. Here is one sample:
“I Tried The Captain Kutchie’s Key Lime Pies And Those PieGasams Healed All My Symptoms Within The First 4-Weeks! I highly Recommend Captain Kutchie’s Key Lime Pies For Anything That Ails You!….(“They’re Great”!!!.).. .. …Kobe Bryant May Be Retiring From Basket Ball But Captain Kutchie’s Is Still His Pie Of Choice!… …Can’t Get Enough Of That Key Lime Pie, Key Lime Pie, Key Lime Pie. Can’t Get Enough Of That Key Lime Pie Or I’ll Just Cry Until I Die, I Don’t Know Why I Just Love My Key Lime Pies!…. .\ .”
So, this is a typical example of what the posts look like, showing many of the common hallmarks: non-syntactic sentences, Capitalization Of Every Word, references to celebrities or politicians liking the pies and an odd radio-announcer like tone are some hallmarks of the writing style, though it can vary. It isn’t hard to see why, after finding these messages strewn across the internet like litter by the side of a freeway, people have gotten sucked into the investigation, and become suspicious of deeper meanings.
This 2-part longpost is going to be looking through the various writings of the mysterious poster over the years and the theories surrounding them, eventually leading up to my own personal quest to solve the mystery, and the findings I’ve made. I do not have a true wrap-up to this case, but I believe I have done the most in-depth research of anyone up until now, and I have discovered some hitherto unexplored leads. First, a look at the theories surrounding the case posited by other investigators over the years:
A Bot- This is a common theory due to the connection to a business, and the fact that the poster seems to respond to certain keywords (topics involving pie, sex, politics, and baby boomer pop culture). However, I think this one can be dismissed out of hand, the reason being that accounts connected to Kutchie’s have engaged and responded to people in a non-botlike way. More on that later. Beyond that, I can’t see any reason for someone to program such a bot, since there’s nothing to be gained from having a bot spend a decade posting nonsense about a defunct restaurant.
Oswald Pelaez himself- This is another one I’ve seen a few times, the assumption being that the posts are the Captain having a senior moment, or just fucking around in his old age. A visit to Pelaez’s Facebook page shows that he did indeed have a word-salad writing style, albeit not the exact same as the Kutchie's poster. However, it seems unlikely that this was the case, as a Redditor reported having contacted one of Pelaez’s sons, and finding that the Pelaez family appeared equally baffled.
An autistic or schizophrenic individual with a fixation on the restaurant: This suggestion derives from the unique writing style and monomaniacal interest of the poster. I have seen mental health professionals weighing in saying that the stream-of-conscious nature of the posts recalls their patients. I think people are drawn to this explanation because it puts something of a wholesome spin on the mystery- an individual with social/cognitive difficulties had a good experience at the restaurant while growing up in Asheville all those years ago, and now he wants to tell the internet about it in his one way. However, as again shown through communications with the poster, they are able to switch out of their “posting voice” and become more lucid, which may put this theory into doubt, or at least implies that the individual behind the posts is more high-functioning and calculating.
Coded messages or communications- This is a natural theory- the idea is that these posts are the modern equivalent of the Cold War number’s stations, broadcasting messages which can be read by the public, but are incomprehensible except to those privy to the info on how to decode it. The immediate problem with this theory is that the slow pace, repetitious nature, and semi-random web addresses of the postings would seem to make it hard to hide code in them. How would the recipients of the code even know where to look? However, there is also the possibility that it’s simply an individual screaming his coded messages into the void, to taunt people or conceal his intentions from all but a skilled codebreaker, rather like the Zodiac Killer or the Duclod Man. Why would this individual choose to hide his messages in the form of posts about a defunct restaurant? Who can say?
So, those are the major theories floating around out there regarding who the poster is. As we can see, a few of these theories can be dismissed out of hand, and one can potentially poke holes in all of them. Now that we’ve looked at the theories, it’s time for an overview of the posts themselves, as they have appeared over the past 10 years:
Foodio54- (http://foodio54.com/restaurant/South-Asheville-Arden-NC/c2e5c/Kutchies-Key-West-Kutcharitaville-Cafe) This restaurant review site hosts four separate reviews of Kutchie’s Key West Cafe. All four of these reviews are clearly written in the same style, and they were written over the course of several years. The oldest one here is by a user named VinnyGambini, after the character in My Cousin Vinny. Dating from December 2009, this may be the single oldest Kutchie’s post.
“Kutch Makes All Those Key Lime Pies From Real Ingredients, Including Real Key Lime Juice. "Anita" Kutchie's Lovely Wife Helps Him Now Making All Those Pies. She Also Runs The Front Too, As Well As The Office. Yea, Keep It All In The Family. Now That's How You Get Quality Control. "Pop", Kutchie's Dad Has Always Been There To Help From The Beginning. Kutchie's Mom Even Helped Out Until She Passed Away Several Years Ago. Threw The 80's Kutch and Anita Had Three Sons, Carlo, Santino and Joseph. Kutch Calls Them His Three Amigo's. All Three Sons Were Raised There In The Restaurant And Have Learned All Aspects Of The Business, From The Dish Tank, Mopping Floors, Cutting Meats, Serving Tables, Cooking And Tending Bar. Kutch Said That His First Road Sign Listed At The Bottom, "Family Restaurant". Kutch Said, "At That Time He Had No Idea That Someday His Whole Family Would Be The Ones Working There". Well I Guess, That's Life. Sometimes I Call Kutch and Ask Him How Are Things Going, He Says "Just Another Day In Paradise". Shit, I Can Tell That He Is Sick And Tired Of Doing The Same Old Thing Day-In And Day-Out. Kutch Would Never Admit That, He'll Probably Keep That Place Open To Train His Grand Kids The Business. Kutch Has Many People Calling, All The Time, Wanting Him To Start An On-Line Business To Sell His Key Lime Pies Country Wide. I Don't Know If He Can Bake That Many. He Seems Pretty Pushed As It Is. He Says That Maybe Someday He Will Throw Up Another Building And Put A Key Lime Pie Factory In It, And Start A Web-Site. May-Be He Will, May-Be He Wont, Who Knows. Just Don't Tell Him, That He Can't. “
Here, the poster refers to Oswald’s wife, Anita. He also accurately names Oswald’s three sons. I don’t know how many records about Oswald Pelaez were online in 2009, so I’m not sure whether the poster would have needed to know the family to have this information. The next oldest post is from 2012, and curiously, does not capitalize every word like most Kutchie’s posts. This poster signs their name as “Betty Joe Walker''. A Google search shows that there was one person with that name (there are a few other Betty Jo Walkers, but only one spelled J-o-e). Walker was a native of central North Carolina. And she died at the age of 67, one year before the post was made. This was the finding that made me start thinking of this mystery as something sinister. Why would a bot, or an individual simply sharing his happy memories, steal a dead person’s name? Two more Restaurant54 reviews of Kutchies’s date to 2013, and contain pretty standard content for the poster. One of them uses the name “Jake Carson'', which is used by this poster in other places as well.
Ozgold.com- Around 2012, the poster began writing posts claiming that Captain Kutchie was giving aways millions of dollars in prizes, and linking to a now defunct site called Ozgold.com. All of these posts can be found in a Pastebin here: https://pastebin.com/bT1z5ywT. He even links to Pelaez’s phone number in one of these. Oddly, he takes a negative tone towards Pelaez in some of these posts, writing in one “Please, Please, Please warn everyone about about ozsgold.com and Mr. OZ, That SOB has to be a crook or just plume loco. Maybe another Bernie Madoff, who the hell knows? It just ain't right.” Of course, this gold giveaway never existed either way as far as I can tell.
The copy-paste messages-
In 2013, the frequency of Kutchie’s posting really skyrocketed. IMDB, cooking sites, Fanfiction.net, Google Books reviews- nowhere was safe. Of course, the poster was mainly drawn in by particular key-topics: Pie, restaurants in genera, sex, politics, baby-boomer celebrities such as Johnny Carson. A few usernames were commonly employed for these posts: Roger Ramjet, Willie Jordan and Jake Carson. Most of these messages would be exact or near-exact copy pastes of one another. Some common topics of these posts included:
Key Lime Pies and Goody-goody Cheeseburgers- As far as can be gleaned from surviving ads, the restaurant prided itself on serving a variety of steaks and seafoods, but the key lime pies and burgers (which the poster always refers to as “goody-goody cheeseburgers”) seem to have been what made an impression to this person/bot/secret cabal. Occasionally, the poster will also reference Kutchie’s “prime ribs of beef with swamp water”. What does that mean- who knows?
Oswald’s wife, Anita Pelaez- generally refers to her as “lovely” or “hot”. "It just doesn't get any better than seeing her," as it appears.
The proximity of the restaurant to the Biltmore Estate- The Biltmore Estate was the home of George Vanderbilt II, and is by far the largest private residence ever built in America. It also happens to be located in Asheville. It seems as though the poster is trying to advertise the restaurant’s proximity to a major tourist attraction- heedless of the fact that the restaurant is closed.
Orgasms- Describing food as “better than sex” isn’t too weird, but our poster really likes to stretch out this saying. He refers to the food as giving him “piegasms” which he implies restored his sexual vitality. Here’s an excerpt of an example from the Google Books reviews of a book called “Incredible Orgasms”, by Marcelle Perks:
“.I Do Know First Hand That The Pelaez’s Famous Key Lime Pies Have The Ability To Turn Small Stream Squirters Into Major League Gushers Or Some Might Call Them “Niagara Falls”. Holly Molly, Let Those Good Times Flow, Baby! ….It’s No Wonder Everyone Believes That Kutchie Pelaez Is The Most Interesting Man In The World…..”Damn He Really Is” For Sure! …..That “Kutchie”, He Looks Marvelous Dahling!… ….”Hemingway”, Had Nothing On The “KutchMan”… ….Someone Overheard The “Kutchman” Say One Day That He Thought That He Was A Lesbian!… We Don’t Want To see Him Coming Out Of The Toilet With Just His Dick In His Hands”
Older Facebook Posts-
To my knowledge, at least three Facebook accounts have been linked to Kutchie's poster over the years. The oldest, operated from 2013-2016 is Jake Carson: https://www.facebook.com/jake.carson.98284/friends. The “Jake Carson” previously showed up as one of the reviewer names on Foodio54. The name bears resemblance to Johnny Carson, another obsession of the poster. This account had no friends, no photos or video uploaded, and never deviated from copy pasting the same few messages over and over. The Carson account was prolific in 2014, often posting 3-5 times/day. The frequency of posts eventually tapered, the last one being made in 2016. 2016 was also the year that the copy-pasted comments on various websites stopped appearing with regularity. Some people believe that the real Kutchie’s poster stopped at this point, and everything after 2016 has been trolls appropriating the role. As we will see, however, the post-2016 posts indicate an equally bizarre and committed writer, which makes it seem unlikely that it’s a different person.
The second Kutchie’s Facebook account appears in 2017. This is another personal account, which goes by the name Kutchie Pelaez. This is one of the main reasons some people think it isn’t operated by the same person- because the poster never previously claimed to be Captain Kutchie (though he did claim to have worked there in some posts). Unlike Jake Carson, Kutchie Pelaez doesn’t post copypasted messages. He does, however, have a variety of artists and musicians liked, including this band, The Ritards, with whom he has the following interaction: https://www.facebook.com/theritards/reviews/?ref=page_internal. What’s curious though, is that beyond this Facebook page, there is little indication that The Ritards actually exist. They have no music uploaded anywhere online, nor are there concert dates. Their posts do have a few likes though, most from people in the Eastern Pennsylvania area. When I messaged the Facebook page to ask what they knew about Captain Kutchie, my post was marked as “seen” almost immediately, even though the page has not been updated in two years. I received no response, however. While The Ritards seemed to be a dead-end, the Eastern PA music scene will prove to be important.
Also notable re: the Kutchie Pelaez Facebook page is the encounter Reddit user u/carinhabsburg had with the account, documented here: https://www.reddit.com/UnresolvedMysteries/comments/5c7g4m/what_the_captain_kutchie_of_the_key_lime_pies/. They messaged the account to ask who Kutchie was. He replied by sending a paragraph of text from a demo version of Silent Hill, which was in Swedish. While u/carinhapsburg was Swedish, they were adamant that there was no way Kutchie should have known that. Referencing a modern video game is certainly out of character for the boomer-persona the Kutchie’s poster had built up, so you can certainly see why some think the post-2016 poster is a different person. However, the vaguely sinister tone of this interaction is not exactly without precedent, given that the poster was already stealing a dead woman’s name in 2012.
Deviantart- The same year that the Kutchie Pelaez Facebook debuted, a Devientart with the same profile picture debuted- https://www.deviantart.com/captainkutchie. The bio of this account ascribes a variety of odd attributes to Captain Kutchie- His favorite gaming platform? “A sidewalk large enough for a heated round of hopscotch or marbles.”
His favourite books? “Epidemically overrated teen paperback novels. Ikea instruction manuals.”
His “Tools of the Trade?” “My fists. Spells and potions.”
The accounts gallery posts are now deleted, and I unfortunately did not take any screenshots. There were three paragraphs that they copypsted over and over- one about Anita Pelaez and Kutchie’s prime rib, one excerpt from a Longmont Potion Castle bit, and one Charles Manson quote. Longmont Potion Castle is an anonymous individual who has recorded their prank calls since the early 90s. Since anonymity and the adoption of absurd personas are LPC’s hallmarks, it’s not hard to see why the Kutchie’s poster chooses to quote them. The Manson quote, while tying in to the poster’s obsession with famous people of the 60s and 70s, adds another deeply sinister element to the mystery.
Patti Salmon-
In 2018, the poster begins writing about Captain Kutchie’s under the name Patti Salmon (a pun on salmon patties?) These posts are differentiated from the past ones by their explicit political anger. While politics were already noted as one of the poster’s obsessions, Patti Salmon goes on disparaging rants, only loosely tied back to the restaurant, against liberal political figures.
This is an excerpt from a comment under a blog post about the Kutchie’s mystery (also indicating that the poster is self-aware of the mystery community’s interest in them):
“That Rep. Jerry Nadler (D) NY, Rag Head llhan Omar (D) Minn, Alex Ocasio-Horetez (D) NY, Ayanna Lesbo Pressley (D) Mass.., Rashida Tlaib (D) Mich., Al Green (D) Tx., Pocahantas Vermont Tribe with Bernie Sanders, Nervous Nancy Cookville Calf., Rachel Madnow (MSNBC), Robert De Negro (NY), Shifty Schiff Cookvill Calf., El Chapo, Bozo O’ Rourke (Who Cares)., Maxine Impeach Waters Cookville Calf., Woopi Goldbrick (ABC)., Joy Blowhard (ABC)., Rainny Hostin (ABC)., Juan Williams (FOX NEWS)., Adoff Hilter (HELL)., Hell-They’re All really some kind of Commie’s ? Impeach Them NOW!!! Oh, I forgot one, The Rev. Al Not-So-Sharpton, very interesting butt Stupid! Let’s Send them all to the moon for the next 50 Years! What would Chef Captain Kutchie Pelaez Say? Well, He would probably say something like “No Soup For You!!!”. “Come Back 50 years”. Or something like for all those “Politicos” “Stay Away From Those Manholes” and he would say “Don’t Get None On Ya!”. Anyway, we sure-do still agree with all those “Kutcharitaville and Chef Captain Kutchie Pelaez Reports that everyone has been posting for the last 25 years or however long this internet thing has been going on. Captain Kutchie has been World Famous way longer than this stupid internet for damn sure. You can take that to the bank, Thats’ GOLD Jerry it’s GOLD! Or put it in your pipe and smoke it. He would also say, All of today’s Anti Trumpers are mad because, they were promised by The Dragon Lady HerSelf “Hillary Clinton” a leading Membership in Hillary’s 666 New World Order! What makes all these Racist, Commie Leftest Liberal Wannabee everything for nothing AssHoles and they’re Scum Sucking Pig, Fake News Chicken-Shit, Ass Licking Fake Reporters think that they can outsmart our “Lord Christ Jesus”? Hillary, your lord Satan was defeated way back on The Cross and yet, YOU, continue to deceive and recruit all those weak souls that you can fool too follow you back home straight too HELL!”
Note the interest in conspiracy theories here.
Newer Facebook Posts-
Finally, we come to the newest Facebook account, this one a page for a business rather than a personal account- Kutchie’s Key West Kutcharitaville Cafe (not linked here, gonna go ahead and say Do Not Interact). This page debuted in July 2020, just weeks before I fell down the Kutchie’s rabbithole and began this investigation. Unsurprisingly given its recency, it does not appear to have been discovered by anyone else in the mystery community.
The earliest posts from this page are simply shares of Jake Carson’s posts from several years prior. On July 12th, the Kutcharitaville page began posting longer messages, at a rate of 5+ every day. These posts are nonsensical jumbles of words that appear in other Kutchie’s posts, and appear to have been created by either a bot, or one of those story generators where you feed paragraphs in and it tries to rearrange them syntactically. Here’s a sample from a much longer post.
“BILTMORE HOUSE AND WE LOVELY ANITA PELAEZ IS THE PELAEZ IS THE WORLD THEY EVERYONE S KEY WEST FAME LOCATED NEAR THE BEST AND GRILL WHERE THE BILLED AS THE LOVELY COUPLE S KEY WEST FAME LOCATED NEAR THE MEL FISHER HE THOSE GOOD NEWS NOT A LESBIAN ANITA S BEST AND GRILL WHERE THE LOVELY COUPLE S BEST AND GRILL WHERE THE LOVELY COUPLE HOUSE AND THEY EVERYONE S SEX RATES BY KUTCHIE S BEST AND WE LOVELY COUPLE S SEX RATES BY NO LESS THAN HIS FATHER THEY EVERYONE S GOOD NEWS NOT A WIN WIN WIN FOR ANYTHING ON THE DOG ATE YOURS DICK IN THE PELAEZ OVER AND TREASURE MUCH MORE ANITA PELAEZ AND HER FAMOUS DEEP SEA UNDERWATER AND HER FAMOUS KEY WEST FAME MAY”
Interspersed with these posts are excerpts from North Carolinian newspapers that reference the restaurant, and photos of the exterior and interior of the abandoned building. What’s interesting is that the photos of the building don’t appear to be from anywhere on the internet. In other words, that means the poster must have actually gone to the building, and either broken in or been let in. This is the reason why I, as stated earlier, think that the post-2016 posts do come from the same individual as the older ones. The level of obsession indicated here is not that of a troll or a LARPer. It’s that of someone truly devoted to an inscrutable cause. Interestingly, one of these posts received a like from the Kutchie Pelaez account, indicating it was still active too in July 2020.
More recently, the account began posting coherent sentences that bear no relation to Captain Kutchie or key lime pies. In a post from July 28th, the poster copypastes the phrase “mail dropped to Rhode Island” 35 times, and below that “From Delaware.” Another post copies the phrase “My brother was eaten by wolves on the Connecticut turnpike,” which is a line from the Stephen King story “1408”.
On July 31st, the poster writes “Carrie Lam is not nice with China. She will end floating in a water tank”, copying this phrase dozens of times. This appears to be a macabre pun on the shared surnames of Carrie Lam, controversial mayor of Hong-Kong, and Elisa Lam, a woman who drowned in a water tank under circumstances that have made her story a fixture in the online unsolved-mysteries community. At the time of writing, the most recent post is from August 25th, and reads
“USE [master] Mexico. Mexico. Mexico. Soon we are in Mexico. (+14) and in we go. GO”
Screencaps of some posts, for posterity: https://imgur.com/gallery/R8ssLw6
This is the current status of the Kutchie’s poster. Dark, cryptic phrases, repeated on a Facebook page to 69 followers. Next, I’m going to be posting about the results of my personal investigation into the Kutchie’s mystery, featuring my interactions with this account, among others.
Edit
I have made a significant error in my post. The owner of the restaurant was Oswald Pelaez Jr, nor senior, and Anita was his wife, while Polly was his father's wife. So Captain Kutchie is still alive, I believe

2020.09.10 23:04 CaptKutchiesTA The Kutchie's Key Lime Pie Mystery Part 1: Overview, Theories and Leads

The mystery of Captain Kutchie and his key lime pie has haunted the internet for over a decade now.It’s been extensively written on elsewhere, so I won’t spend long on the details I assume many already know, so check this link for some more in-depth info (https://www.reddit.com/UnresolvedMysteries/comments/9wo93c/other_an_indepth_look_at_kutchies_key_lime_pies/ )
The basis of the mystery though, is that since 2010, an individual or group has been writing cryptic, bizarrely written rants on various websites about a restaurant called Captain Kutchie’s Key West Cafe, usually focusing on either the key lime pies served at this restaurant, or the owner, Oswald “Kutchie” Paleaz. For a long time, it was unclear that Kutchie’s actually existed, but it was eventually discovered that the restaurant did exist, and was open from the 1970s until 2009, at the address 2227-2201 Asheville Hwy, Hendersonville, NC 2879. The messages about Kutchie’s have turned up in various places throughout the internet, but they usually share a common format. Here is one sample:
“I Tried The Captain Kutchie’s Key Lime Pies And Those PieGasams Healed All My Symptoms Within The First 4-Weeks! I highly Recommend Captain Kutchie’s Key Lime Pies For Anything That Ails You!….(“They’re Great”!!!.).. .. …Kobe Bryant May Be Retiring From Basket Ball But Captain Kutchie’s Is Still His Pie Of Choice!… …Can’t Get Enough Of That Key Lime Pie, Key Lime Pie, Key Lime Pie. Can’t Get Enough Of That Key Lime Pie Or I’ll Just Cry Until I Die, I Don’t Know Why I Just Love My Key Lime Pies!…. .\ .”
So, this is a typical example of what the posts look like, showing many of the common hallmarks: non-syntactic sentences, Capitalization Of Every Word, references to celebrities or politicians liking the pies and an odd radio-announcer like tone are some hallmarks of the writing style, though it can vary. It isn’t hard to see why, after finding these messages strewn across the internet like litter by the side of a freeway, people have gotten sucked into the investigation, and become suspicious of deeper meanings.
This 2-part longpost is going to be looking through the various writings of the mysterious poster over the years and the theories surrounding them, eventually leading up to my own personal quest to solve the mystery, and the findings I’ve made. I do not have a true wrap-up to this case, but I believe I have done the most in-depth research of anyone up until now, and I have discovered some hitherto unexplored leads.

A visit to Pelaez’s Facebook page shows that he did indeed have a word-salad writing style, albeit not the exact same as the Kutchie's poster. However, it seems unlikely that this was the case, as a Redditor reported having contacted one of Pelaez’s sons, and finding that the Pelaez family appeared equally baffled.
An autistic or schizophrenic individual with a fixation on the restaurant: This suggestion derives from the unique writing style and monomaniacal interest of the poster. I have seen mental health professionals weighing in saying that the stream-of-conscious nature of the posts recalls their patients. I think people are drawn to this explanation because it puts something of a wholesome spin on the mystery- an individual with social/cognitive difficulties had a good experience at the restaurant while growing up in Asheville all those years ago, and now he wants to tell the internet about it in his one way.

As we can see, a few of these theories can be dismissed out of hand, and one can potentially poke holes in all of them. Now that we’ve looked at the theories, it’s time for an overview of the posts themselves, as they have appeared over the past 10 years:
Foodio54- (http://foodio54.com/restaurant/South-Asheville-Arden-NC/c2e5c/Kutchies-Key-West-Kutcharitaville-Cafe) This restaurant review site hosts four separate reviews of Kutchie’s Key West Cafe.

Shit, I Can Tell That He Is Sick And Tired Of Doing The Same Old Thing Day-In And Day-Out. Kutch Would Never Admit That, He'll Probably Keep That Place Open To Train His Grand Kids The Business. Kutch Has Many People Calling, All The Time, Wanting Him To Start An On-Line Business To Sell His Key Lime Pies Country Wide. I Don't Know If He Can Bake That Many. He Seems Pretty Pushed As It Is. He Says That Maybe Someday He Will Throw Up Another Building And Put A Key Lime Pie Factory In It, And Start A Web-Site. May-Be He Will, May-Be He Wont, Who Knows. Just Don't Tell Him, That He Can't. “
Here, the poster refers to Oswald’s wife, Anita. He also accurately names Oswald’s three sons. I don’t know how many records about Oswald Pelaez were online in 2009, so I’m not sure whether the poster would have needed to know the family to have this information. The next oldest post is from 2012, and curiously, does not capitalize every word like most Kutchie’s posts. This poster signs their name as “Betty Joe Walker''. A Google search shows that there was one person with that name (there are a few other Betty Jo Walkers, but only one spelled J-o-e). Walker was a native of central North Carolina. And she died at the age of 67, one year before the post was made. This was the finding that made me start thinking of this mystery as something sinister. Why would a bot, or an individual simply sharing his happy memories, steal a dead person’s name? Two more Restaurant54 reviews of Kutchies’s date to 2013, and contain pretty standard content for the poster. One of them uses the name “Jake Carson'', which is used by this poster in other places as well.
Ozgold.com- Around 2012, the poster began writing posts claiming that Captain Kutchie was giving aways millions of dollars in prizes, and linking to a now defunct site called Ozgold.com. All of these posts can be found in a Pastebin here: https://pastebin.com/bT1z5ywT. He even links to Pelaez’s phone number in one of these. Oddly, he takes a negative tone towards Pelaez in some of these posts, writing in one “Please, Please, Please warn everyone about about ozsgold.com and Mr. OZ, That SOB has to be a crook or just plume loco. Maybe another Bernie Madoff, who the hell knows? It just ain't right.” Of course, this gold giveaway never existed either way as far as I can tell.
The copy-paste messages-
In 2013, the frequency of Kutchie’s posting really skyrocketed. IMDB, cooking sites, Fanfiction.net, Google Books reviews- nowhere was safe. Of course, the poster was mainly drawn in by particular key-topics: Pie, restaurants in genera, sex, politics, baby-boomer celebrities such as Johnny Carson. A few usernames were commonly employed for these posts: Roger Ramjet, Willie Jordan and Jake Carson. Most of these messages would be exact or near-exact copy pastes of one another. Some common topics of these posts included:
Key Lime Pies and Goody-goody Cheeseburgers- As far as can be gleaned from surviving ads, the restaurant prided itself on serving a variety of steaks and seafoods, but the key lime pies and burgers (which the poster always refers to as “goody-goody cheeseburgers”) seem to have been what made an impression to this person/bot/secret cabal. Occasionally, the poster will also reference Kutchie’s “prime ribs of beef with swamp water”. What does that mean- who knows?
Oswald’s wife, Anita Pelaez- generally refers to her as “lovely” or “hot”. "It just doesn't get any better than seeing her," as it appears.
The proximity of the restaurant to the Biltmore Estate- The Biltmore Estate was the home of George Vanderbilt II, and is by far the largest private residence ever built in America. It also happens to be located in Asheville. It seems as though the poster is trying to advertise the restaurant’s proximity to a major tourist attraction- heedless of the fact that the restaurant is closed.
Orgasms- Describing food as “better than sex” isn’t too weird, but our poster really likes to stretch out this saying. He refers to the food as giving him “piegasms” which he implies restored his sexual vitality. Here’s an excerpt of an example from the Google Books reviews of a book called “Incredible Orgasms”, by Marcelle Perks:
“.I Do Know First Hand That The Pelaez’s Famous Key Lime Pies Have The Ability To Turn Small Stream Squirters Into Major League Gushers Or Some Might Call Them “Niagara Falls”. Holly Molly, Let Those Good Times Flow, Baby! ….It’s No Wonder Everyone Believes That Kutchie Pelaez Is The Most Interesting Man In The World…..”Damn He Really Is” For Sure! …..That “Kutchie”, He Looks Marvelous Dahling!… ….”Hemingway”, Had Nothing On The “KutchMan”… ….Someone Overheard The “Kutchman” Say One Day That He Thought That He Was A Lesbian!… We Don’t Want To see Him Coming Out Of The Toilet With Just His Dick In His Hands”
Older Facebook Posts-
To my knowledge, at least three Facebook accounts have been linked to Kutchie's poster over the years. The oldest, operated from 2013-2016 is Jake Carson: https://www.facebook.com/jake.carson.98284/friends. The “Jake Carson” previously showed up as one of the reviewer names on Foodio54. The name bears resemblance to Johnny Carson, another obsession of the poster. This account had no friends, no photos or video uploaded, and never deviated from copy pasting the same few messages over and over. The Carson account was prolific in 2014, often posting 3-5 times/day. The frequency of posts eventually tapered, the last one being made in 2016. 2016 was also the year that the copy-pasted comments on various websites stopped appearing with regularity. Some people believe that the real Kutchie’s poster stopped at this point, and everything after 2016 has been trolls appropriating the role. As we will see, however, the post-2016 posts indicate an equally bizarre and committed writer, which makes it seem unlikely that it’s a different person.
The second Kutchie’s Facebook account appears in 2017. This is another personal account, which goes by the name Kutchie Pelaez. This is one of the main reasons some people think it isn’t operated by the same person- because the poster never previously claimed to be Captain Kutchie (though he did claim to have worked there in some posts). Unlike Jake Carson, Kutchie Pelaez doesn’t post copypasted messages. He does, however, have a variety of artists and musicians liked, including this band, The Ritards, with whom he has the following interaction: https://www.facebook.com/theritards/reviews/?ref=page_internal. What’s curious though, is that beyond this Facebook page, there is little indication that The Ritards actually exist. They have no music uploaded anywhere online, nor are there concert dates. Their posts do have a few likes though, most from people in the Eastern Pennsylvania area. When I messaged the Facebook page to ask what they knew about Captain Kutchie, my post was marked as “seen” almost immediately, even though the page has not been updated in two years. I received no response, however. While The Ritards seemed to be a dead-end, the Eastern PA music scene will prove to be important.
Also notable re: the Kutchie Pelaez Facebook page is the encounter Reddit user u/carinhabsburg had with the account, documented here: https://www.reddit.com/UnresolvedMysteries/comments/5c7g4m/what_the_captain_kutchie_of_the_key_lime_pies/. They messaged the account to ask who Kutchie was. He replied by sending a paragraph of text from a demo version of Silent Hill, which was in Swedish. While u/carinhapsburg was Swedish, they were adamant that there was no way Kutchie should have known that. Referencing a modern video game is certainly out of character for the boomer-persona the Kutchie’s poster had built up, so you can certainly see why some think the post-2016 poster is a different person. However, the vaguely sinister tone of this interaction is not exactly without precedent, given that the poster was already stealing a dead woman’s name in 2012.
Deviantart- The same year that the Kutchie Pelaez Facebook debuted, a Devientart with the same profile picture debuted- https://www.deviantart.com/captainkutchie. The bio of this account ascribes a variety of odd attributes to Captain Kutchie- His favorite gaming platform? “A sidewalk large enough for a heated round of hopscotch or marbles.”
His favourite books? “Epidemically overrated teen paperback novels. Ikea instruction manuals.”
His “Tools of the Trade?” “My fists. Spells and potions.”
The accounts gallery posts are now deleted, and I unfortunately did not take any screenshots. There were three paragraphs that they copypsted over and over- one about Anita Pelaez and Kutchie’s prime rib, one excerpt from a Longmont Potion Castle bit, and one Charles Manson quote. Longmont Potion Castle is an anonymous individual who has recorded their prank calls since the early 90s. Since anonymity and the adoption of absurd personas are LPC’s hallmarks, it’s not hard to see why the Kutchie’s poster chooses to quote them. The Manson quote, while tying in to the poster’s obsession with famous people of the 60s and 70s, adds another deeply sinister element to the mystery.
Patti Salmon-
In 2018, the poster begins writing about Captain Kutchie’s under the name Patti Salmon (a pun on salmon patties?) These posts are differentiated from the past ones by their explicit political anger. While politics were already noted as one of the poster’s obsessions, Patti Salmon goes on disparaging rants, only loosely tied back to the restaurant, against liberal political figures.
This is an excerpt from a comment under a blog post about the Kutchie’s mystery (also indicating that the poster is self-aware of the mystery community’s interest in them):
“That Rep. Jerry Nadler (D) NY, Rag Head llhan Omar (D) Minn, Alex Ocasio-Horetez (D) NY, Ayanna Lesbo Pressley (D) Mass.., Rashida Tlaib (D) Mich., Al Green (D) Tx., Pocahantas Vermont Tribe with Bernie Sanders, Nervous Nancy Cookville Calf., Rachel Madnow (MSNBC), Robert De Negro (NY), Shifty Schiff Cookvill Calf., El Chapo, Bozo O’ Rourke (Who Cares)., Maxine Impeach Waters Cookville Calf., Woopi Goldbrick (ABC)., Joy Blowhard (ABC)., Rainny Hostin (ABC)., Juan Williams (FOX NEWS)., Adoff Hilter (HELL)., Hell-They’re All really some kind of Commie’s ? Impeach Them NOW!!! Oh, I forgot one, The Rev. Al Not-So-Sharpton, very interesting butt Stupid! Let’s Send them all to the moon for the next 50 Years! What would Chef Captain Kutchie Pelaez Say? Well, He would probably say something like “No Soup For You!!!”. “Come Back 50 years”. Or something like for all those “Politicos” “Stay Away From Those Manholes” and he would say “Don’t Get None On Ya!”. Anyway, we sure-do still agree with all those “Kutcharitaville and Chef Captain Kutchie Pelaez Reports that everyone has been posting for the last 25 years or however long this internet thing has been going on. Captain Kutchie has been World Famous way longer than this stupid internet for damn sure. You can take that to the bank, Thats’ GOLD Jerry it’s GOLD! Or put it in your pipe and smoke it. He would also say, All of today’s Anti Trumpers are mad because, they were promised by The Dragon Lady HerSelf “Hillary Clinton” a leading Membership in Hillary’s 666 New World Order! What makes all these Racist, Commie Leftest Liberal Wannabee everything for nothing AssHoles and they’re Scum Sucking Pig, Fake News Chicken-Shit, Ass Licking Fake Reporters think that they can outsmart our “Lord Christ Jesus”? Hillary, your lord Satan was defeated way back on The Cross and yet, YOU, continue to deceive and recruit all those weak souls that you can fool too follow you back home straight too HELL!”
Note the interest in conspiracy theories here.
Newer Facebook Posts-
Finally, we come to the newest Facebook account, this one a page for a business rather than a personal account- Kutchie’s Key West Kutcharitaville Cafe (not linked here, gonna go ahead and say Do Not Interact). This page debuted in July 2020, just weeks before I fell down the Kutchie’s rabbithole and began this investigation. Unsurprisingly given its recency, it does not appear to have been discovered by anyone else in the mystery community.
The earliest posts from this page are simply shares of Jake Carson’s posts from several years prior. On July 12th, the Kutcharitaville page began posting longer messages, at a rate of 5+ every day. These posts are nonsensical jumbles of words that appear in other Kutchie’s posts, and appear to have been created by either a bot, or one of those story generators where you feed paragraphs in and it tries to rearrange them syntactically. Here’s a sample from a much longer post.
“BILTMORE HOUSE AND WE LOVELY ANITA PELAEZ IS THE PELAEZ IS THE WORLD THEY EVERYONE S KEY WEST FAME LOCATED NEAR THE BEST AND GRILL WHERE THE BILLED AS THE LOVELY COUPLE S KEY WEST FAME LOCATED NEAR THE MEL FISHER HE THOSE GOOD NEWS NOT A LESBIAN ANITA S BEST AND GRILL WHERE THE LOVELY COUPLE S BEST AND GRILL WHERE THE LOVELY COUPLE HOUSE AND THEY EVERYONE S SEX RATES BY KUTCHIE S BEST AND WE LOVELY COUPLE S SEX RATES BY NO LESS THAN HIS FATHER THEY EVERYONE S GOOD NEWS NOT A WIN WIN WIN FOR ANYTHING ON THE DOG ATE YOURS DICK IN THE PELAEZ OVER AND TREASURE MUCH MORE ANITA PELAEZ AND HER FAMOUS DEEP SEA UNDERWATER AND HER FAMOUS KEY WEST FAME MAY”
Interspersed with these posts are excerpts from North Carolinian newspapers that reference the restaurant, and photos of the exterior and interior of the abandoned building. What’s interesting is that the photos of the building don’t appear to be from anywhere on the internet. In other words, that means the poster must have actually gone to the building, and either broken in or been let in. This is the reason why I, as stated earlier, think that the post-2016 posts do come from the same individual as the older ones. The level of obsession indicated here is not that of a troll or a LARPer. It’s that of someone truly devoted to an inscrutable cause. Interestingly, one of these posts received a like from the Kutchie Pelaez account, indicating it was still active too in July 2020.
More recently, the account began posting coherent sentences that bear no relation to Captain Kutchie or key lime pies. In a post from July 28th, the poster copypastes the phrase “mail dropped to Rhode Island” 35 times, and below that “From Delaware.” Another post copies the phrase “My brother was eaten by wolves on the Connecticut turnpike,” which is a line from the Stephen King story “1408”.
On July 31st, the poster writes “Carrie Lam is not nice with China. She will end floating in a water tank”, copying this phrase dozens of times. This appears to be a macabre pun on the shared surnames of Carrie Lam, controversial mayor of Hong-Kong, and Elisa Lam, a woman who drowned in a water tank under circumstances that have made her story a fixture in the online unsolved-mysteries community. At the time of writing, the most recent post is from August 25th, and reads
“USE [master] Mexico. Mexico. Mexico. Soon we are in Mexico. (+14) and in we go. GO”
Screencaps of some posts, for posterity: https://imgur.com/gallery/R8ssLw6
This is the current status of the Kutchie’s poster. Dark, cryptic phrases, repeated on a Facebook page to 69 followers. Next, I’m going to be posting about the results of my personal investigation into the Kutchie’s mystery, featuring my interactions with this account, among others.
Edit
I have made a significant error in my post. The owner of the restaurant was Oswald Pelaez Jr, nor senior, and Anita was his wife, while Polly was his father's wife. So Captain Kutchie is still alive, I believe
