“[When Vonnegut tells his wife he’s going out to buy an envelope] Oh, she says, well, you’re not a poor man. You know, why don’t you go online and buy a hundred envelopes and put them in the closet? And so I pretend not to hear her. And go out to get an envelope because I’m going to have a hell of a good time in the process of buying one envelope. I meet a lot of people. And, see some great looking babes. And a fire engine goes by. And I give them the thumbs up. And, and ask a woman what kind of dog that is. And, and I don’t know. The moral of the story is, is we’re here on Earth to fart around. And, of course, the computers will do us out of that. And, what the computer people don’t realize, or they don’t care, is we’re dancing animals. You know, we love to move around. And, we’re not supposed to dance at all anymore.”—
HELP!! Hey Dylan I need your help, i really really REALLY want to buy a camera but I don't want to spend so much. Do you know of a good affordable camera that takes good pictures but won't make my bank account die of starvation?
Oh boy, something I’m good at: buying cameras.
I’m a firm believer that the best camera is the one you have on you, so my gear usually favours portability over performance.
Noodles and Beef’s camera guide
My first camera was a Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ5. Bought it from Costco at the recommendation of wooferstl when I was starting my 365 project. Its a great introductory camera with excellent auto controls and a small, portable size that makes shooting easy.
My first DSLR (bigger sensor, better photos, more manual control) camera was a Olympus E-PL1. It was horrible. I spent a lot of time after returning it researching DSLR cameras before settling on the SONY NEX-5. Its been my camera of choice for the last four years. The photo quality is amazing and being able to edit RAW photos really expanded my hobby.
Flags are constructed as a pair of mirrored/identical flags with weights sewn along one edge (A to B) and wrapping around one corner (B). When you flag, you’re basically throwing the weighted corner (B) by the point you grab (A). Based on the type of movements you want to create (tight poi movements VS large flag motions), your hands travel closer or further from the weighted corner (B).
Hey there I saw some of your Folsom photos and if you don't mind me asking , i really wanna go but is it worth it in your opinion to drive from San Diego to San Francisco the day before for the event and just curious if its 18+ or 21+ or no age limit because i am 20 thank you! --alex4569
How do you render Chuck pub helpless if I may ask? Just for future encounters with alpha pubs like him.
Alpha pup Chuck is nearly twice my size: he’s a head taller than me, nearly 300lbs, and lifts more than I do in every workout. His physically dominant presence is accentuated by his deep, authoritative voice and an intimidatingly sharp mind. He’s the alpha in the office, the Anna Wintour of his industry, and when not working he travels with an entourage of beefy asian guys.
How do you render such a dominant man into a helpless pup?
Trustr and a little physical force.
I picked up on Chuck’s submissive side the night we first met, but it was clear he was very guarded. A lifetime of social conditioning forcing him into a dominant role because of his size gave him a lot of submissive shame; he didn’t feel it was alright to submit or give up control as a man.
As our friendship grew and trust was earned, I learned his submissive triggers were based around making him (a very dominant person) feel powerless. It started as gently as pulling him towards me by his backpack straps. He lost his balance and fell into my arms, the sudden disorientation snapped him into his submissive headspace.
Because of his size, I have to resort to the principles of kuzushi, or “breaking balance,” to use his size against him and make him powerless. From standing, I can tug him off balance and slam him into a nearby wall or into the ground. From there I can easily pin him with just my body weight. He’s completely helpless and powerless in two seconds. And he loves it.
Next time you encounter an alpha type pup or sub, pay attention to their submissive cues. Do they respond to you being more aggressive? Then maybe you need to pin them down and tie them up.
Ok this may sound silly but I'm just trying to understand your latest question response. You say that your pups get bigger and get piercing body modifications that way you feel like they are yours, but what do you do to make them feel like they are yours as well? Does each pup have their own I guess you can say "piece" of you that varies from pup to pup?
My pups push themselves bigger, get pierced, and tattooed to feel like they’re mine, not the other way around. These changes and modifications are symbolic of our relationship, that my pups are mine and they must earn that privilege every day.
They always aspire to be and give more for their Master. My pups are loyal to a flaw and unrelenting in their desire to make me happy…thats how I know they’re mine.
The only “piece” that varies from pup to pup is how I engage them.
Each pup has different triggers and needs. I can put big pup in subspace with just eye contact, but Chuck needs me to render him helpless before he breaks.
