2023.06.04 22:15 mrfunnyish What’s the current state of the marketing team in your company?

There have been budget cuts, layoffs, restructuring, etc in so many companies. So I was wondering, how’s the marketing team handling it? And what’s the situation internally (or on the client side, if you work at an agency)?
I’ll go first
Company category: Mar-tech startup, (series A funded). Country: India Industry: B2B SaaS Situation: Were doing extremely well until mid 2022. Since then, the company’s vision and mission keeps changing. Had layoffs recently and current marketing team morale is really low with the CMO themself confused and not sure of what the strategy is for the next quarter.
How’s it going in your company?

Back to Back Lonnie IG Posts
So the Lakers make back to back Instagram posts about Lonnie. On my last post it seems people are 50/50 on bringing LWIV back. Like I said I’m all for it. We can’t give up on our players that fast. Chemistry is just as key as having another star!
Only his first season with the Lakers. His first time on the big stage and he did pretty well considering he was benched for the first round and majority of the GSW series. Memorable Game 4 is stamped as the Lonnie Walker Game.
Denver simply out played us so I’m not blaming Lonnie for underperforming in that series. I believe he will come back better & motivated!
At least one more year. I don’t think he’ll want to miss the opportunity of making another deep playoff run with us. Which I know will happen next season. Especially if it’s possibly Lebron’s last season with us.

2023.06.04 22:14 xinn1x A blackout wont worry Reddit VCs. A migration will. 3rd party devs supporting for Lemmy would force Reddit to backtrack.

If you don't know, Lemmy is an open source and federated website similar to reddit
There is also a tool to easily migrate all posts and comments from a subreddit to a community on lemmy https://github.com/rileynull/RedditLemmyImporter
If 3rd party app developers like iamthatis enabled support for lemmy on their apps. Reddit will be forced to negotiate with the 3rd party app developers.
The 3rd party app developers have multiple options to make reddit usable on 3rd party apps even if they shut off api access. They can make it easy for anyone to view posts on reddit and have their upvotes and comments shared with all 3rd party app users by using lemmy in the backend (similar to how the return youtube likes extension works but much more convenient).
Jane Wong on twitter mentioned how something similar happened in 2016 in Hong Kong.
"I’d use a version of Apollo that has its own forum
Back in 2016, a developer of a popular third-party app for a forum in Hong Kong (HKGolden) branched out and launched their own forum (LIHKG) after a series of disputes with the original forum over API access. LIHKG has since become one of the most popular forum in Hong Kong, whereas HKGolden has faded into obscurity."
With Lemmy as a backend Apollo and all third party apps can have a shared way to continue working way better than the "official" Reddit App or even make it simple for a full migration from Reddit to community owned Lemmy servers. Since Lemmy uses the same protocol as Mastodon, users on mastodon can already comment, upvote, and share posts from any Lemmy server too.
Migration from VC owned platforms that do everything to make us see more ads to platforms owned and sustained by their communities is becoming easier and more important.

2023.06.04 22:13 Dry_Scallion1188 [TOMT] [ANIMATED SERIES] [1980s]

Looking for help identifying an animated series I watched as a child in the early to mid-80s. The story revolved around some children, the main character was a girl. I think they were orphans living in an orphanage, at least for some part of it. I think she was white, but the visual style resembles anime, and I remember Für Elise was the main musical score for it.
I was very young and remember little of the overall plot, we watched on VHS tapes and probably missed a bunch of episodes, and I have no idea how many there were.
When I say it resembles anime I need to say that I had no clue about anime back then (and still don’t know much about it), but as an adult that’s the feeling I get. Something about the eyes and how they animated things like tears. It wasn’t supernatural as I recall, but rather a drama, I think maybe they searched for her or their parents or family or something like that.
It’s definitely pre 1990, most likely before 1986 but possibly even older.
Any help appreciated, thanks.

2023.06.04 22:13 PattableGreeb Space opera and/or military sci-fi that have an emphasis on the emotional impacts of the conflict.

I've been watching Gundam: Witch from Mercury and having my soul kicked by it, and I also recently read Infinity Gate by M.R. Carey. It's got me in the mood for sci-fi of the space opera and/or military sci-fi flavor (really anything with a violent tech-based conflict, in space or on ground) that really hones in on how the situation affects the characters. Something with lots of tragedy and feels, basically.
I'm mainly looking for books, of course, hence my posting here.
Series I've already got books in/have started include: Chanur, Galaxy's Edge, Polity, Sprawl, Culture, Commonwealth, Final Architecture, Old Man's War, Machineries of Empire, Teixcalaan, Hyperion, and Red Rising. Though even if you recommend me something I already have it helps, since I can still pick my next read that way!
TLDR: Recommend me some sci-fi focused on characters and their development wherein I will be punched repeatedly in the feels and maybe cry a little.

2023.06.04 22:12 maglor-feanarion Do anyone else have anxiety about aging because of social anxiety ?

I am an introverted person and I love staying at home, and rarely feel bored because there are a lot of things that I can do by myself, such as drawing writing stories or playing games which are my favorite activities.
But this year I reached 28, and seeing my 20’s ending and my 30’s approaching make me realize how fast life is passing. I’ve spend almost my whole 20’s mainly at home, and I hadn’t any single IRL friends from my whole 20’s except someone I met on an internet rpg in 2018 but which only stayed in my city for one year.
I never liked big parties and things like this but I’d like however having one good friend with whom I can hangout and each of us just talk about our favorite interests, our own fictional characters and watch movies/ series together. If I could go back in my 18’s I would also have liked to do an art school.
Sometimes I m anxious that growing up when I’ll be older I might regret my youth and blame myself a lot for not having enjoyed it more ): At the same time my home is also my safe haven as I always had bad social skills. I have fortunately my family there. I don’t know what to do…

RARBG used to have a lot of TV series, including British shows. I found some alternatives and I would like your input:
- hdencode.org - doesn't have many UK shows
- ddlvalley.me - is it any good?
- releasehive.org - is it any good?
- rlsbb.cc - is it any good?
And also, do you have any other suggestions? Thanks!

2023.06.04 22:11 luciflerfather First time reading Gardens of the Moon

The first time I had heard of Malazan was a few weeks ago in passing, and thought nothing of it. As I was searching for something to quench my fantasy thirst, I kept searching for something to invest my time in. And then I heard of Malazan again and it piqued my interest, so I researched a bit watched a couple videos and the reviews were quite mixed. Readers were saying it was the hardest book they had read and couldn’t understand any of it. Others said it was one of the best fantasy series they had read.
So do what I do best I ignored all the warnings about how, you get plunged into the world without any guiding or clue. And the many people that have given up reading this book because they didn’t understand anything of what was going on.
So my plan reading this was to slowly read through but it was quite difficult as it felt like I didn’t understand any of it, or more importantly that I was missing something. But I kept reading and reading and to my expectations. I have never read a fantasy book so immersing it felt like I was transported to another realm the world of Malazar.
I just kept reading through the feeling that I didn’t understand any of it. (I still don’t but a bit more than at first. And it has payed I can’t quite describe how good this book is.

2023.06.04 22:11 chug-a-lug-donna grammy test

Hello, and welcome to Music’s Biggest Night! That’s right, it’s the GRAMMYs. The year is 1994 and our category is Best Alternative Music Album. We’ll be rating each of the five nominees on Indieheads, but before we get to the nominees, a quick word about rates.
Hey, quick question, what are rates? Obviously, if you're familiar with the process, skip this. But if you're new, I'll explain so this doesn't seem like a wild block of text! Rates are a subreddit game in which a user scores a group of songs on a scale from 1-10, with each individual also given a single 11 and a single 0 to be used exactly once per rate. They will then message their ballot to the rate host, who will tally up all the points and then reveal the final results over a weekend, eliminating songs one by one until the last track remaining wins the rate and bragging rights forever. While there's just a bit more to know, I feel this is the basics of what you'll need to understand what's going on. I do recommend this video made by our popheads brethren to get a fuller picture; while some of the info applies specifically to the way popheads do their rates, the overall format is similar.
Introduction The GRAMMYs are awards presented by The Recording Academy of the United States to recognize outstanding achievements in the music industry. The name derives from the trophy, which is shaped like an old-fashioned gramophone. The awards celebrate a variety of categories, but we’re going to be looking at Best Alternative Music Album or, as it was called at the time, Best Alternative Music Performance. The question of what “alternative” really means can be debated forever, but the original intent of this award was to celebrate non-mainstream rock albums which were heavily played on college radio. The category first appeared in 1991, so in 1994 the award is still pretty new.
And now, let’s meet our nominees!
Belly - Star Belly are the act here that seem least often discussed on Indieheads, so I’m excited to see what everyone thinks of them. By the time of starting Belly, Tanya Donelly (lead vocals and rhythm guitar) had already been in two other classic indie rock bands. She was a co-founder of Throwing Muses with her step-sister Kristin Hersch, contributing vocals and guitar for the band’s first decade, though she’d only get a handful of songs per album. Donelly would later start The Breeders with Pixies bassist and vocalist Kim Deal. The Breeders’ debut, Pod, featured Deal as the primary songwriter because existing record contracts prohibited the two from sharing primary writing credits. While they originally intended to alternate albums, Tanya had begun to form Belly by the time it was her turn to do a Breeders album. She recruited Fred Abong (bass) and brothers Tom (guitar) and Chris (drums) Gorman as they’d all known each other while going to high school in Rhode Island.
Belly co-produced most of their 1993 debut Star with Tracy Chisholm. Gil Norton, who’d previously produced Throwing Muses’ self-titled debut, produced four tracks, including singles “Gepetto,” “Slow Dog,” and “Feed the Tree.” “Feed the Tree,” one of the album’s highlights, would be the band’s highest charting hit, reaching 95th on the Billboard Hot 100 and topping the Modern Rock Chart. Star is an effective fusion of alternative rock with jangle pop, dream pop, “haunting” folk, and even some light country influences. At the 1994 GRAMMYs, Belly were also up for Best New Artist with Blind Melon, Digable Planets, and SWV, ultimately losing to R&B singer Toni Braxton. Belly released a sophomore album King in 1995 and Donelly released several solo albums before reuniting with the King lineup to release a third album in 2018. While Star may not have achieved the canonical stature of some of 1994’s other nominees, it is nevertheless a very enjoyable release from a strong songwriter who’d finally gotten the chance to make an album-length statement of her own.
Are Indieheads gonna feed the tree? Will this be an album to die for?

Nirvana - In Utero If you were wondering where “Heart Shaped Box” was in the Guitar Hero Rate, well I’ve got a treat for you!
Kurt Cobain (vocals and guitar) and Krist Novoselic (bass) met while attending Aberdeen High School in the late 1980s. They shuffled through various names, ultimately deciding on Nirvana because Cobain wanted a name that sounded beautiful and nice instead of mean and raunchy. In their early years, they worked with several different drummers, recording 1989’s Sub Pop debut Bleach with Chad Channing on drums. Channing left the band as they worked on their follow-up to Bleach. Kurt and Krist met drummer Dave Grohl days after he’d moved to Seattle following the break up of his Washington DC band Scream. The addition of Dave solidified Nirvana’s classic lineup. The trio began seeking a major label to buy them out of their Sub Pop contract as they were dissatisfied with the label’s lack of promotion and distribution of their debut. They eventually signed with DGC Records per the recommendation of Sonic Youth’s Kim Gordon. Upon signing, they began work on their major label debut, Nevermind, with producer Butch Vig. 1991’s Nevermind was an unexpected success, bringing grunge and alternative rock to the mainstream and even surpassing Michael Jackson on the Billboard albums chart.
In the aftermath of Nevermind’s success, Cobain felt he needed to reclaim his punk ethic. Wanting to depart from Butch Vig’s slick production on Nevermind (don’t worry, we’ll still be hearing from Vig a little later), he sought to work with Steve Albini. Albini was pretty famous in the underground for his work as frontman for Big Black and various production work, including PJ Harvey’s Dry, which he sent a copy of to give Cobain an idea of the acoustics in his studio. Albini dismissed Nirvana as "R.E.M. with a fuzzbox" (more on R.E.M. soon!) but decided to work with them because he felt bad for them, recognizing them as "the same sort of people as all the small-fry bands I deal with." The band pushed for minimal label oversight and recorded In Utero fairly quickly, wrapping recording sessions in as little as 13 days. The album was noisier and more abrasive than Nevermind, resulting in much dispute between the band, Albini, and the label. Cobain sought to make the kind of record he’d enjoy owning as a fan and began having second thoughts about the sound when listening to it at home. The press picked up on conflict about the album’s sound. The band denied this and even DGC president David Geffen called Newsweek to explain they would release whatever Nirvana recorded. Behind the scenes, the band tried to fix the album’s sound in the mastering process, which Albini was strongly against, though he’d later supply an alternate mix for the album’s 20th anniversary re-release. R.E.M producer Scott Litt was brought on to remix “Heart Shaped Box” and “All Apologies” which were intended to be the album’s singles.
In Utero was released in September of 1993 following a low-key release strategy which released “Heart Shaped Box” as a promo-only single to various rock station formats but not Top 40. Walmart and K-Mart initially refused to stock the album due to its back cover and the title of the song “Rape Me.” (A content note on that song, while it is interpreted as commentary on the invasive music press, it was intended to be a lyrically literal anti-rape song from the perspective of a victim. As this is a rate, you can score this song however you see fit, but I hope it goes without saying that everyone should please be respectful of this subject matter in their comments.) Despite In Utero’s abrasive sound and reduced mainstream promotion, the album still debuted at number one on the Billboard album charts and was well-received by critics. The music often hits harder and faster than Nevermind, containing more of the “punk” feel that Cobain was aiming for compared to the grunge of Nevermind and the band’s Seattle contemporaries. Check out this MTV clip if you’d like to see how college students in 1993 received this one. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fiwhwy7S4qA) The band toured America shortly after In Utero came out and embarked on a European tour that was cut short as Cobain suffered from a drug overdose. A couple weeks later, Cobain died by suicide. As with the subject matter of “Rape Me,” I want to request that everyone is respectful of this in their comments, I will ask for edits (or omit comments myself) if they are inappropriate. Despite the tragic ending, Nirvana is still seen as one of American and alternative rock’s most important bands and In Utero remains highly regarded to this day.

R.E.M. - Automatic for the People If there’s a band who can rival Nirvana’s stature in the American rock canon, it’s gotta be R.E.M. They are often cited as one of the first “alternative” rock bands and were important for the college radio format. Formed in Athens, Georgia in 1980, Michael Stipe (vocals), Peter Buck (guitar), Mike Mills (bass), and Bill Berry (drums) released 5 albums with independent label I.R.S. Records, evolving from a jangle rock sound on their early albums to a louder, more anthemic sound on their final record for the label, Document. After “The One I Love” became their first mainstream hit, the band signed to Warner Brothers, kicking off a second act that resulted in yet another 5 album run of great music.
At the start of the 90s, R.E.M. opted out of touring and became a studio band. The band recorded demos for the songs “Drive,” “Try Not to Breathe,” and “Nightswimming” at Prince’s Paisley Park Studios while mixing their 1991 album, Out of Time. Out of Time was a huge success, arriving as alternative rock was becoming mainstream. It spawned the massive single “Losing My Religion” and even ended up winning the GRAMMY award for Best Alternative Music Album in 1992. After concluding some promotional duties in early 1991, the band returned to the studio to continue work on what would eventually become Automatic for the People. This would be the fourth of six records the band would produce with Litt. The band traded off instruments in the studio, with Buck playing the mandolin famously featured on “Losing My Religion,” Mills playing piano or organ, and Berry playing bass. Their initial attempts to make a harder rocking follow-up did not pan out, as the band found they were writing better without drums. The material began to take on a more melancholic tone. The lush orchestration of Out of Time is rendered in a somber greyscale, with arrangements contributed by Led Zeppelin’s John Paul Jones. Lyrically, the album muses on loss and mourning, prompting rumors that recently balding Michael Stipe was dying of cancer or AIDs. Luckily, he was not but that is the lens through which some critics and listeners received this work. The album also finds room for political commentary, most noticeably in “Ignoreland” which pushes against Republican politics of the time, but also in opener “Drive” which calls back to the group’s work with the Rock to Vote movement, for which they added a petition on the longbox packaging of Out of Time.
Automatic for the People released on October 5, 1992 (gotta love the GRAMMYs odd eligibility window) debuting at number 2 on the Billboard 200. Unlike its predecessor, it never quite reached the top spot, thanks to Garth Brooks. Six of the album’s 12 tracks were released as singles including “Drive,” “Everybody Hurts” which has unfortunately been watered down through years of ironic use in comedies, the cryptic, Andy Kaufman referencing “Man on the Moon,” and “Nightswimming,” an emotional piano ballad that has become a fan favorite. The album was critically acclaimed upon release and, while perhaps not as fun as something like Murmur, this nocturnal bummer is regarded by many as one of the band’s masterpieces.
Will everybody hurt? Are R.E.M. going to get a raw deal?

The Smashing Pumpkins - Siamese Dream The Smashing Pumpkins formed in 1988 when Billy Corgan (vocals and guitar, he prefers William Patrick Corgan now though) met James Iha (guitar) while working at a record store in Chicago, Illinois. They performed as a duo with a drum machine, eventually adding bassist D’arcy Wretzky after meeting her at a show by the Dan Reed Network. Jazz drummer Jimmy Chamberlain was recommended by a friend of Corgan’s after the trio were booked to perform at Cabaret Metro under the condition that they’d play with a live drummer instead of their drum machine. With Chamberlain on board, the band’s classic lineup had been formed and their sound began to shift in a harder rock direction.
Siamese Dream, the group’s 1993 sophomore album, expands on their 1991 debut Gish in every possible way. The band switched from Virgin subsidiary Caroline Records to Virgin itself. Butch Vig, who produced Nirvana’s massive Nevermind right after finishing work on Gish, returned to produce the follow-up. Where Gish’s $20,000 budget and month of recording time was “unprecedented” for Vig, Corgan and Vig spent four months on Siamese Dream and went $250,000 over budget. This is what happens when you let Billy overdub everyone else’s guitar and bass parts (something the rest of the band wasn’t particularly happy about) to get as many as 100 guitar parts compressed into one song.
The meticulous studio process paid off, as Siamese Dream was a bigger hit than Gish (peaking at 10 on the Billboard 200.) The band’s influences from metal, dreampop, and shoegaze give the album a layered and unique sound compared to the grungier alternative music of the time. Singles “Cherub Rock” and “Today” have been featured in the Guitar Hero and Rock Band videogame series. While never released as a single, “Mayonaise” has become a fan favorite and won a Rolling Stone poll for best Pumpkins song, beating out singles from Siamese Dream and the band’s follow-up double album Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness. Judging from some early discussion since this rate was announced, some of you seem pretty excited to rate “Mayonnaise.” While Mellon Collie took the band to the height of their popularity, Siamese Dream is often regarded as their masterpiece and one of the best rock albums of the 90s.

U2 - Zooropa Formed in Dublin, Ireland in 1976, U2 (Bono on vocals, The Edge on guitar, Adam Clayton on bass, and Larry Mullen Jr. on drums) have become the top-selling Irish musical act of all-time, with an estimated 170+ million records sold. Across the 80s, U2 evolved their early post-punk sound to the anthemic rock of The Joshua Tree. While touring America for that album, the band recorded Rattle and Hum, a hybrid live/studio record (and accompanying concert film) which documented the tour and the group’s fascination with American roots music. Despite the album’s commercial success, most consider it a misguided failure. Even Bono admitted at their final show for the album’s Lovetown Tour that “we have to go away and dream it all up again.”
1993’s Zooropa catches U2 at their most adventurous. 1991’s Acthung Baby and its subsequent Zoo TV tour rebranded the band for the new decade. While they continued working with Unforgettable Fire and The Joshua Tree producers Brian Eno and Daniel Lanois, they updated their sound with influences from electronic, dance, and industrial music. On stage, they dabbled in irony to counter the sincerity of their 80s output with Bono playing characters such as The Fly and Macphisto. Emboldened by the critical and commercial success of this album and tour, they began working on a promotional EP during a break between Zoo TV tour legs. Despite working quickly in the studio, this EP expanded into a full-length album, requiring the band to travel between concerts and the studio in Dublin to finish working on the album during the first month of the “Zooropa” leg.
Zooropa finally arrived in July of 1993 and it shows the band doubling down on their early 90s ideas. The sound of the album, built from loops of soundcheck jamming and leftover sketches from Achtung Baby, ventures even further from traditional rock instrumentation and songwriting, bolstered by production from Brian Eno, Flood (moving from an engineering to production role), and The Edge, credited as a producer for his first time. The fragmented nature of the album’s production is reflected in the eclectic tracklist which bounces between the multi-movement art-rock of the title track, dancefloor fillers like “Daddy’s Gonna Pay for Your Crashed Car,” and ballads like “For the First Time” and “Stay (Faraway, So Close!)” Unique vocal choices like The Edge’s spoken-word rapping on lead-single “Numb,” Bono’s falsetto on “Lemon,” and a Johnny Cash feature on closer “The Wanderer” help the album feel more varied than U2’s previous material. The album’s lyrics often examine Zoo TV’s concepts of “sensory overload” and technology more explicitly than Achtung Baby.
While U2 are reluctant to acknowledge Zooropa now (likely influenced by the failure of 1997’s Pop, a rushed, mixed bag of an album that stretched audience’s tolerance for 90s U2’s tendency toward electronic music and irony to a Rattle and Hum-like breaking point) the album was successful when it came out. Zooropa debuted at number one in several countries and finished ninth on 1993’s Pazz and Jop poll. It would also go on to win this GRAMMY award for Best Alternative Music album, with Bono shrugging on stage, shouting out Smashing Pumpkins, and promising to “the young people of America” that they will “continue to abuse our position and fuck up the mainstream” in his acceptance speech.

2023.06.04 22:10 StippledPixelation Emotionally Stuck on the Battle of Brenna in the books!

Nobody I know has read the Witcher books, so I'm putting this out there incase someone else relates, but I zipped through the series a few months back and reached the Battle of Brenna and I'm really struggling to get through the last part of the series. I'm just so emotionally invested and I know, being the series it is, there will be no flowery happily-ever-after for my favorites.
But through a twist of fate I only have the Lady of the Lake for a long stretch of entertainment and I've forced myself to keep going and then Coen shows up dead and I had to put the book down again.
You know those WWI movies that depict the grim, cruel reality of war and such? Well of course I get invested, but this is a first time reading medieval-esque war brutality happen to characters that one way or another I've become novel-level of emotionally attached to.
I finished Lord of the Rings yesterday (hence having the Witcher with me now) and after a million pages I wasn't as attached to any of the fellowship as I am to Rusty, just hacking away at people. It makes me so sad. I'm just really attached to the whole world.
