2021.10.16 08:24 aliasad1998 Drishyam is an excellent thriller that also acts as a commentary on the consumption of art

This this a flawed film that suffers from a lot of the problems that generally make me avoid Bollywood. Things like tonal inconsistencies, forced sentimentality, jarring editing, and music that does not need to be there in order to enhance the effect of a scene. There is a part near the beginning where the main character rebukes another character for enjoying an action scene from a film they are watching because it contains choppy editing and loud music. It seems that the director of Drishyam often doesn’t seem to follow his own rules. As he himself generously uses these gimmicks that serve only to distract from the subject matter which is compelling enough on its own.
Yet it overcomes these flaws with ease. The battle between the exceptionally likeable family and the police institution — along with the terrifying individuals that it is composed of — is handled expertly.
The film also acts as a clever commentary on cinema itself. In the beginning, the protagonist lectures his daughter about how not all learning is done in a classroom. A lot of it is done through experiences. An overused cliche when observed on its own, but perhaps much more meaningful when looked at in the context of the film. For the next two hours, he proceeds to outsmart an entire organization while protecting his family, and he does a lot of it through his knowledge of cinema. In this case, his “experiences” are the hundreds of films he has interacted with. The importance of art is a topic that will always be discussed. It can heal. It can entertain. It can be used to communicate. And countless other things. But perhaps the film is highlighting an aspect of art that does not often get discussed. It’s practical value. Does the art that we consume have an impact on things like survivability and decision making in the face of adversity? According to Drishyam, it certainly does.

2021.10.16 08:24 Sad_Perspective_2038 Getting over an abusive relationship

I am writing this feeling completely lost. I went through a breakup about two months ago and I thought I would be over this already because I have every reason to do so. I met my ex (24) when we were both 19, he is only a few months older than me. I met him when I had just moved to the city, full of hopes and dreams and he seemed to be everything I ever wanted. He was the sweetest, most supportive and loving person I had ever met. Being also my first bf I fell hard. I didn’t have anyone but him since it was a new start for me and I guess I should’ve noticed the red flags whenever he would come in between me making friends or giving attention to family members. At first I thought he was my rock, but after a while the relationship was incredibly codependent and I ended up doing many things I didn’t want to because he insisted, like moving in together so young (21). After some time I became resentful because all my dreams had been pushed aside, I had no money, no car, no stable job and was miserable but I couldn’t leave him. It wasn’t until I caught him cheating that I ended the relationship, but he begged and said he wanted to end his life. The cheating caught me and my family so off guard because outside of feeling stuck and broke he had this unquestionable persona who was crazy about me. Very religious person who desired a family with me. He was so good at this role that even my parents suggested I gave him a second chance. He begged and cried over the phone for months. Swore on his mother’s life he never “actually” cheated since it was only a text and wasn’t planning to meet with her. (Only to now know he did cheat and it happened in my apartment and in the bed I bought) I took him back and that has to be my biggest mistake. We were together for another 9 months and it’s hard to remember a day when he didn’t make me cry. He kept blaming me for bringing up the topic and basically said he wouldn’t have cheated if I had been more attentive. He ended up texting another girl while he had just asked me to move in with him again. Although I had proof he somehow convinced me it was the girl plotting against him. We tried to work things out but he started to yell at me in public. After that he asked for space, but if I’d go out he would come back. He would come back every time he had sexual needs and I was so convinced that he was there because he missed me. After asking for space I asked him if there was someone else envolved and he said I was crazy to think that way, that he wanted us to work out but needed to cool down. He also invited me to his house since I was leaving the city to visit family. At his place I found out he was not only seeing someone, but engaged to her. This was an old friend who he had said was his cousin. I tried to let this girl know the situation because it didn’t seem fair to her and she called me a crazy ex although I had proof of being in his place atm!! He then grabbed my stuff, threw them to the street and threatened to call the police if I didn’t leave. After that he has both threatened me saying he hasn’t begun hurting me and that I’ll never get to be happy and he has also apologized and said he will always love me and knows we are together in another life time only to again remind me I’m worthless. (Last time was about a week ago) I don’t know why I don’t hate him yet. I still cry over this, but what bothers me the most is that I don’t only cry because I’m angry, I’m hurt. I can’t understand how I didn’t see who he truly was. I feel incredibly stupid. I haven’t been able to delete the pictures and “love” messages. I feel like the person I dated for 5 years never exited or he died. I keep remembering how he would look at me and all the things he would do and I can’t understand how or why he would do any of it while stabbing me from the back like this. There was NOTHING I wouldn’t do for him I just don’t know why he would treat me this way. Worst part is he has made it clear to let everyone know he hates me and that he left me for someone else and that this new person is everything he always wanted. I know I shouldn’t care about them but it seems so unfair that they get to walk out of this as if I hadn’t just been murdered in the process. I’m just so mad at myself because I still cry over this and I still find myself missing what I thought we had. Anyways, I’m sorry for the 10 page post. I just can’t talk about this with my family or friends anymore because it’s already been enough.

2021.10.16 08:24 benpai413 Getting off these apps for my own health

These apps are exhausting and so far have made me feel a lot less desirable and a lot more insecure than I used to be. None of the conversations have gone anywhere except this one very confusing pseudo-relationship. It's a rough world for an average looking guy 😅 Wish you all the best of luck with your online dating!

2021.10.16 08:24 nebulacoffeez Missed POP - should I double up?

Missed my progestin-only pill Thursday night, didn’t notice until it was time to take my pill Friday night. So I went 48 hours without taking a pill. It has now been about 5 hours since I took my pill like normal Friday night (I haven’t doubled up yet). Do I absolutely need to also take the missed pill from Thursday? Or is it okay to just leave it skipped?
I am in the first week of my cycle. I take the pill to lessen (suspected) endo pain and to prevent pregnancy, but have not been sexually active lately because I’ve been sick and quarantining from my partner. I’m wondering if skipping one pill would mean I have to wait a whole other month to have (safer) sex once I feel better.
Also, since I’m recovering from illness, I’m concerned about any negative side effects of doubling up on pills. The first week of my cycle, I tend to get bad headaches and anxiety on the pill (from raised blood pressure I think), so I’m concerned that doubling up on pills + already being sick will make any side effects unbearable. If it won’t create too great a risk of either pregnancy or endo pain returning, or other hormonal problems, I would much rather just skip the missed pill so I don’t feel even sicker the next couple days. Any insights appreciated!

It's a simple question, can you change a character's name with CE without being banned?
The plan is to have a fashion souls/cosplay character and to only have it be ok that single one so as not to take up a crazy number of character slots.
