      DiMono It's Back Baby!

      Last week I posted a hypothetical situation about someone being wrongfully fired based on false sexual misconduct allegations and asked, if it was you, whether you would return to the job after you were cleared.


      Everyone said no, and the one person who was on the fence said the company would have to work hard to re-earn their trust first.


      So I have to ask the #IStandWithVic crowd, if it turns out the allegations against Vic Mignogna are false, and after all that those allegations will have put him through, what makes you think that he'd say yes if RT offered him the Qrow gig back?



      P.S. to those who flagged that journal and the comments on it, I'm a Site Admin. Who do you think reviews those flags? And do you really think the Site Admins don't talk to each other? Please only flag content that violates the Terms of Use.

    • A Hypothetical Situation

      DiMono It's Back Baby!

      Suppose you were publicly fired by the company you work for. They told you the reason they fired you was that other employees had accused you of being sexually inappropriate. You knew you hadn't been, and you knew that the people who accused you didn't like you and were actively trying to sabotage you. If your employer had just done the most cursory amount of research, they would have found that out for themselves and this wouldn't be an issue. But here you are, fired for something you didn't do because your employer took the other people's side without digging to find the truth first.


      This is something that could devastate your life and your career. If these allegations held, you'd never be able to work in your chosen field again. You need to fight them, but who can afford that? So you raise the money online from people who are sympathetic to you. It takes a while, and you sacrifice a lot to make it happen, but eventually you have enough money to strike back at your accusers. After a drawn out process, you manage to clear your name, but not before losing countless business contacts, colleagues, and friends.


      You reflect back on the company that put you in this position. They didn't trust you, they probably don't respect you, they fired you without cause, and they triggered a series of events that ruined your life as you know it and threatened your livelihood and your future. The mental and emotional pain you went through at the hands of this company is beyond measure. The financial burden was like none you'd ever faced, and without strangers on the internet having your back you would have been forced to go down without a fight.


      And then, after the dust has settled, they quietly send you an email to apologize and to offer you your job back.


      Do you take it?

    • Liveblogging Bad Movies 7: 50 Shades Freed

      2 months ago

      DiMono It's Back Baby!

      I'm just coming down from a really bad head cold, and I'm not quite thinking clearly just yet. What better time to liveblog a bad movie!? At 3pm EST (in about 6 minutes) I'll be starting up 50 Shades Freed, because I've already done the first two, and apparently I hate myself. Watch this space!




      Let us begin! As a quick refresher, the 50 Shades series is where Christian Grey, played by someone who has absolutely no chemistry with Melanie Griffith's daughter, stalks her and basically indoctrinates her into loving him, like it's a cult. Then he's awful to her, in a world where the worst BDSM gets is apparently three spanks with a paddle, and somehow convinces her to marry him. And that's where this movie picks up, I think? Onward!


      0:01:00 - Well we're getting the wedding out of the way immediately. Literally during the opening credits. Not wasting any time, at least. This movie's almost 2 hours long. Fuck.


      0:03:25 - Oh look, the "I don't want the bouquet" wedding trope.


      0:03:45 - Why is she still surprised that he owns expensive things?


      0:04:40 - He has millions of dollars but doesn't own an umbrella?


      0:05:30 - The opening credits are finally over. This movie is literally 5% opening credits.


      0:06:30 - Oh look, Grey is being possessive again. They're surrounded by naked people, but Ana's not allowed to have her bikini top off. Setting the scene for those who missed the first two movies but for some reason are watching this one, I suppose.


      0:07:30 - Apparently this is a corporate espionage movie? Not gonna lie, if the movie is more espionage than shitty abusive relationship, I might be into this.


      0:09:15 - "Do you remember your safeword?" As if that's a thing people forget? Fuck.


      0:11:50 - She looks at a picture with no definition, and is able to make out exactly who it is? At least be a little believable, movie.


      0:14:30 - How was she surprised by having responsibilities? Wouldn't those have been dictated to her by Grey before the wedding, since he likes controller her all the time?


      0:16:00 - Only after getting married does she bring up the prospect of having kids? How is this not something you discuss WELL before marriage?


      0:17:30 - Grey manipulating Ana's life again, arranged a promotion for her while they were away.


      0:19:40 - Christian Grey, a successful businessman, undercuts his wife at work. Solid business sense.


      0:23:45 - There's no way Grey isn't nailing that architect.


      0:25:30 - Ana and I are of a like mind. And we were right. It's almost like these movies are formulaic and predictable or something...


      0:27:00 - Christian Grey, impressed by how well Ana handled the architect, hands over the keys to his Audi for her to drive back to the city. This should be a touching, impactfull scene. Instead Grey plays it as boring as possible. May as well have been a plank of wood. Keanu Reeves would have done it better.


      0:29:30 - He tells her to lose the tail, but then dictates to her what to do? Either you trust her to lose them or you don't. Pick a side.


      0:32:20 - Better partnering through gratuitous hair care scene?


      0:36:15 - What she typed in no way matched what appeared on the screen. If you're going to change the texts, just reshoot the scene you lazy assholes.


      Editor's note: Fuck recaptcha while doing this.  Literally took two minutes to finish clicking on boxes.


      0:42:50 - Was Dakota Johnson doing a Liv Tyler impression in the previous two movies too and I just didn't notice?


      0:44:00 - We're 40% through the movie, and we've had exactly two plot elements. There was a fire at Grey's office, and now someone just broke into their penthouse. I'm sure there's a plot coming, right?


      0:47:25 - We just had a scene where Dakota Johnson was literally being masturbated and having her nipples sucked, and most interesting thing about it was the music. Good job, movie.


      0:50:15 - I think this might be the first time Christian Grey has done anything legitimately nice for his now wife without an ulterior motive. And we're only 5/6 through the franchise. Truly, a love story for the ages.


      0:54:20 - "There you are. I was looking for you." No you weren't, you were looking in the fridge. Now you're just being a bad liar.


      0:55:00 - Licking ice cream off a hairy chest? I have a hairy chest. The hair doesn't always stay on it under friction. Bold move, Cotton.


      0:56:00 - I wonder if they're making this look like a larger budget softcore porn movie on purpose, or if it just kind of worked out that way.


      0:57:25 - Ana makes just a little bit of noise and Christian complains that she's going to wake up the whole house. Five minutes ago she was specifically told she can make as much noise as she wants, because everyone else is at the other end of the house. There's no way Grey didn't know that. be consistent, movie! Stop making this liveblog come across like a Cinema Sins video!


      1:00:20 - Just saw someone hugging someone, it must be an affair! I seriously don't know who either of the two people were, everyone looks the same in this movie.


      1:05:00 - That looked like a buttplug. A very large buttplug that didn't taper for insertion. I hope that wasn't her first, otherwise it would suuuuck.


      1:08:15 - Who's Doctor Green? Is this a subplot I missed? I don't remember seeing her before now. Did they just forget? Anyway Ana's pregnant now and Hyde (the guy who broke in to their apartment) is claiming that he was dating Ana and she fired him to ruin his career over it. It's now a very high budget soap opera.


      1:11:30 - The movie is dogshit, but all three of these movies have had stellar soundtracks. Even bad movies can have a saving grace.


      1:13:45 - Conveniently timed text from female name is conveniently timed. Are there tropes this movie doesn't use?


      1:17:40 - That's a lot of melodrama.


      1:19:00 - Seriously, that's a lot of melodrama. Oh, and apparently Ana getting pregnant is the plot of this film. Good thing it waited until more than halfway through the runtime to reveal it.


      1:22:00 - So Jack Hyde had bail set at $500,000. Now he's calling Ana on Mia Grey's phone demanding five million dollars. He doesn't have a job. How does he have the money to pay that bail? And if he had that money, why does he need more from Ana and Christian? And why isn't Ana calling Christian to tell him what's happening? How is it that the most important actual plot points in this film make no sense?


      1:30:55 - Of course Christian Grey has tracking software on Ana's phone. Why wouldn't he?


      1:35:00 - The movie's almost over, and I legitimately don't know what the plot was supposed to be. It felt like it was 80% filler. And it's still not over yet.


      1:39:30 - Grey says he might have turned out differently if he was left in the foster system, and Ana's response is to remind him how good he had it growing up rich. That's really not what he meant, Ana.


      1:41:00 - And now they're doing a montage of all the weird creepy stuff he did to "win her over." It's like they actually think this story is romantic and not a chronicle of sexual and emotional abuse.


      1:43:30 - And the song they go to the credits on is Love Me Like You Do. That's nice and ironic. Probably not what they were going for though.


      1:44:15 - Mid-credits scene. is Ana wearing a dress with masking tape down the arms? What the hell?


      1:50:18 - And we're done. Mercifully out of our misery.



      What a mess of a movie. The narrative was scattered, and it felt like it really couldn't figure out what kind of movie it wanted to be. At parts it was high-budget Skinemax, at other parts it was plainly a soap opera, and the corporate espionage angle went literally nowhere. The first thing Jack Hyde (cheap literary references for the fail!) did was set off a bomb at Grey's building that didn't affect the plot in any further way. There was literally no reason to even include that scene.


      And let's talk about Jack Hyde for a moment, too. It turns out that he and Grey were foster brothers, and he always resented Grey for being adopted instead of him. That's fine, and it's a sensible motivation. But we got two movies before this one, and at no point was any of this foreshadowed in either of them. Hyde wasn't even in the second one from what I can remember. Something like this is a big plot twist, and when you have something like this in a story, there need to be elements you can look back on and say "Oh yeah, that makes sense because of x y and z."


      For instance, a pretty big deal is made in Pitch Perfect 3 about John Lithgow being Fat Amy's estranged father. Then we find out more about him, and we learn why Amy got out of that situation. Here's the thing though; her real name's Patricia. She changed her name to make it harder to track her down. And we learned that about her in the first movie. So after watching the third movie, you can look back on the story about her name from the first one and say "Oh yeah, that makes sense now." That is how something like this is supposed to play out.


      Anyway, my final verdict on Fifty Shades Freed is that it's a pile of dogshit wrapped up in a very expensive bow so that it looks all nice and pretty, but that doesn't change the fact that it's still a massive sloppy turd. The plot is all over the place, the acting is inconsistent, and I don't know why I keep doing this to myself. If you feel the need to watch any of the Fifty Shades movies, just punch yourself in the face until you can't feel feelings any more instead, because you'll have a better time. Unless you're planning to MST3K them, I guess. That's probably a lot of fun.


      Until next time? I hope not? Bah.


      Still a better love story than Twilight.

    • Identifying Weakness

      5 months ago

      DiMono It's Back Baby!

      Over the last couple months I've been trying to focus on bigger, more complex movements in the gym. Things like deadlift and squat, which I'd been forgoing in favour of more focused movements. My strategy was to build up the individual muscles first, to try to get back to where I was pre-injury, and then start doing the complex lifts once I had that basis of strength. It was a good plan.


      Another part of it is paying attention to my body, and doing the things that it demands from me. A couple weeks ago I noticed that it was not my legs holding back my deadlift, it was my lower back. It was not my back holding back my pullup, it was my scapular retraction. Small muscles and movements that need attention before the bigger ones can begin in earnest.


      What that means is that back day (such as today) is less about the big movements like pullups, pull downs, and rows, and more about the basic strength movements, like back extensions and scap pulls, to round out that basis of strength I was talking about earlier. It's still the same plan, just a little delayed. And holy crap is it boring. And I probably look like an idiot doing those scap pulls. But, if you want results, you need to leave your ego at the door and do what's right for you. It took me over a decade to get there, but I've finally gotten good at that.


      This same principle applies to everything else we do. If there's something holding you back, then identifying it and dealing with it will help you move forward. Sometimes it's something as big as a toxic person in your life who needs to be cut out of it (you know who you are, check your inbox before commenting here), which is never easy or fun. Sometimes it's realizing you're spending too much time on reddit, and not leaving yourself enough time to do the things you actually want to get done. I've mentioned previously the time I cut my TV viewing from 20 hours a week to 5 ten years ago so that I'd have time to work on my own projects (it's currently sitting at 8, and almost exclusively while I eat so that I'm not losing much time).


      Right now, for me, what's holding me back is two-fold. First, I'm spending too much time on reddit. I use it as a news source, which leads me to spending a lot of time reading articles. Being informed is good, but not at the expense of the things you want to accomplish. Secondly, this building I live in is taking a serious toll on my mental health. It keeps me in a constant state of mild depression, and that affects my motivation and enthusiasm for the things I want to do. I'll routinely avoid starting work because I don't have the motivation, and then just start working anyway and get through it like nothing, because the work isn't hard for me, it's just that I completely lack motivation for it.


      One of those things is easier to fix than the other. Cutting reddit out of my life just involves not going there any more. That's going to free up as much as two hours a day. Getting out of this building is way more difficult. I'm here because it's cheap, which makes it easy to make rent when business is slow, as well as while I'm in the process of changing my business' focus, which requires a lot of effort now for no money, in exchange for payoff down the road. I have options while I'm here that I don't have if I'm in a more expensive place. I can't move out until the new direction I'm taking my business in pays off, which doesn't happen until I've put in all that work, which is hard because the place I'm living to do it depresses me. And the cycle continues.


      I'm not at the point where I need to ask for help, and I have some things on the horizon that are exciting, so I'm okay. The point I'm attempting to make here is one of being self-aware. It's important to pay attention to yourself and your habits, so that you can identify those problem spots. Only after you've figured out what they are can you address them. It's a difficult thing to do if you're not accustomed to it, but once you are it allows you to tweak your life like a video game. A year down the road, you'll wonder why you ever did those things that were holding you back in the first place.


      At least, that's my opinion. What's yours?

    • Changing Goals

      7 months ago

      DiMono It's Back Baby!

      For the months of August and September, I was cutting weight for a wedding I went to on Thanksgiving Weekend (first weekend in October in Canada). Lost about 15lbs in 9 weeks, ended up looking almost identical to when I started. I think all the weight I lost was in my upper back, which looks phenomenal now, and my legs. Meanwhile, my abdomen, where I wanted to stop looking skinny-fat, still looks exactly the same. You can't target fat loss, folks.


      Now that that's over, and I find myself at 6'3" and 154lbs, it's time to start putting weight back on. I want to do a clean bulk, which is where you monitor your calories such that most of the weight you put on is muscle, rather than a more fat-leaning split from which you'll tone down later. There's more to it than that, but I'm simplifying here to get the point across.


      When I was losing weight, I focused a lot of my gym time on body parts. Monday was legs, Wednesday was trunk, Friday was shoulders and arms. Now that I want to gain mass, I'm going for things that are more functional. I will never have to do a biceps curl anywhere outside a gym, but I will have to pull myself up to a higher platform - especially if I get into rock climbing like I was teasing a couple years ago. I still want to do that.


      Last Monday was a day out of the gym, so my first day back was Wednesday. Here's what my gym routine has looked like since getting back:


      Wednesday: box jumps and deadlifts


      Friday: wall balls and ball slams (throwing a heavy ball up and throwing a heavy ball down)


      Monday (today): squats and ball slams


      My body seems to be adjusting to the new patterns okay, which is good. Hopefully by changing how I'm working the muscles, they will be shocked into more growth than would have happened if I'd stuck with my previous program. Time will tell.


      Sidenote: for my first time doing squats in two years, I did okay. After a couple warmup sets I did a 5x5 with 135lbs. Considering I'm 6'3" and only weigh 155lbs (an absurd weight for anyone my height), and considering I haven't done the movement in two years, I'm calling that a win. I'm gonna be sore tomorrow though.

    • It was an accident

      8 months ago

      DiMono It's Back Baby!

      I just accidentally got a deadlift PB. Getting the PB wasn't the accident - doing deadlift was the accident. I had intended to do deadlifts next Wednesday, but I was so upset by the news about Bill 5 (Provincial gov't redistricting Toronto in the middle of an election cycle just because they can) that I thought it was a week later than it is, and did deadlifts instead of a normal chest/back workout.


      So what was the PB, you ask? Good question! After being out of the gym for well over a year due to injury, I returned to it with weak legs, chest, and back, and now five months later they still haven't quite recovered. I also started cutting weight at the beginning of August, because I'm tired of being skinny-fat. Yes I've been taking progress pictures, and somehow after losing 10lbs they all look exactly the same. I'm as confused as you are.


      Right now I weigh about 157lbs at 6'3", and I pulled 255lbs on the bar with good form (if your back rounds, you're doing it wrong). It is not the greatest PB in the world - no, it is just a tribute. But it's damn good for me right now, on a cut and having recovered from a lower back injury - a muscle that features heavily in the deadlift. So I am very pleased with the result, and I'm going to continue working towards bigger lifts for as long as I'm able.


      The cut ends on October 5, at which point I'll be entering what I hope will be a Clean Bulk, which is basically gaining lean mass rather than just gaining weight and some of it is muscle. I am definitely looking forward to not being hungry so often.


      How've you folks been?

    • Upgrade Complete

      10 months ago

      DiMono It's Back Baby!

      I just updated my website. Speech Only now holds a prominent place on the front page, the largely incoherent rambling of an intro is gone, the image carousel is moved to the About Me page, and some of the page contents have been updated. This is undoubtedly far from the website's final form, but it will do for now.


      On Monday my desk chair decided it was tired of being a chair, and a piece of the metal in the back of it pushed through the padding to press against my spine. I had to skip leg day. Well, I postponed it until yesterday anyway, when I did cardio for 45 minutes because that's all I was really confident I could do with that much spinal pain. More cardio coming today, because the pain's not quite gone entirely yet, then hopefully back to the usual fare for Friday and beyond. Amusingly, my backup office chair is actually better than the one I was using, except for the armrests hurting my elbows because they're just hard plastic. I'll be looking for a nice high quality replacement chair in the near future.


      Happy Wednesday!

    • Reorientation

      10 months ago

      DiMono It's Back Baby!

      I spent the weekend at Ad Astra, schmoozing with some of my fellow writers and readers. Time with Ed Greenwood is never wasted. I came out of the weekend having decided that I need to build up more of a social following. So, I hope you'll all follow me on Twitter at @TheDiMono where I'm going to be posting stuff way more frequently than I do here. Hopefully we can get conversations going on there that will draw more people in, and get a little community going.


      I'm also going to be looking at ways to get more engagement on my website. In addition to being way more active in submitting my short stories to places for publication, right now I'm considering transplanting my old Speech Only series to my website on a weekly basis, so that there's always new content to see. Hopefully that will help me to draw in fans and readers, and again, get a little community going. And of course this will require updating the website to make room for it, which is always fun.


      In non-self-promotional news, my heels are very nearly healed! It's been a month of moisturizing them twice a day, and aside from one spot on my left heel that was particularly deep, they're basically smooth but still dry. That is a huge improvement compared to where I started, and I'm quite pleased with it. My big toes are a little further behind, but the breaks in them are also healing up, so another two weeks and hopefully they'll be good too, for the first time I can remember. Seriously, I can't think of a time when my big toes weren't severely cracked.


      Meanwhile, I'm tired of living in a building with no central air, which requires me to run portable air conditioners in my bedroom and office that aren't strong enough to actually get the job done unless I close the doors and completely abandon the rest of my apartment for 3-4 months. I want out of here, and that requires more work, which requires new clients. If anyone knows of a company that needs a new website or would benefit from some web software to help them run their company, I would greatly appreciate it if you would send them my way.


      So how have the rest of you been?

      Hey man this time g1 Tom the Iron Man over on ScrewAttack and just wanted to touch base with you about someone we've been seeing posts with on Twitter and Facebook, a fellow g1 named Dylan Toomey. Dylan's been around since 2008 and simply put, he's a wily and silly guy with a penchant of making memes that no one understands but himself, and that's the joke. He means no harm and he's just continuing his shtick now and introducing himself in his own special way that the migration of ScrewAttack to the Rooster Teeth family is complete. I know Dylan personally and have met up with him at every SGC he's been in attendance to, and he's actually a quiet and fairly reserved person IRL. Clearly he's been rubbing the mods the wrong way and it has led to you having to intervene personally, if it is a breach of conduct I can assure you he has no idea it is. Hit me back if you have any questions (I'm still trying to figure out how everything works here), and have an awesome night.

      Just wanted to toss you a quick "thanks" for all the workout pointers and Tough Mudder tips you gave me a while ago. You were one of the few people who gave me actual usable advice that has made a difference. I've been working out for just about 4 months now and I've seen great progress and plan to keep pushing forward.

      So, thanks :)

I didn't see your comments until now, after scanning through Adam's journal's comments and seeing that someone had discovered that fact. I don't remember whether we banned anyone for being knucklesdawson, but seeing as the thread you were commenting about is locked now, it seems irrelevant. I just wanted to let you know that I wasn't ignoring you, I literally had no idea you'd said anything because of a site failure.

      Have I been banned from the v2 thread or something? I can't post in there, says I lack sufficient permissions.

      Are you tagging me in posts? Or is it the site transferring data over. Because I'm not able to access the tags to see.


      Also, 4000th comment.

      I have no idea what's happening right now, but I'm getting like.. half a dozen notifications that you're mentioning me in a post.. and when I click on it, I get sent to a completely jumbled version of your profile.

        I got no notification that you'd left me this comment. I was trying to put up a private journal entry and tag site admins in it. It didn't work properly. I eventually got it up and running, so check out my journal.

        I mean giving troll answers. People ask questions there looking for information, and they are trusting of the answers they receive. You posting random garbage in there is inappropriate.

        Nah. But that's entirely dependent on how you define how I've been posting. Do you mean in the past few days or overall?

      I'm considering signing up for Tough Mudder this summer, any training tips or things I should know before I fully commit?

      • DiMono FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold It's Back Baby!

        It's about 11 miles, so 17km is pretty close to accurate.

        Awesome thanks! I have a team I just need to get my ass in gear for strength training. I'm already running frequently so I just plan on increasing my mileage (I heard there's about 17km of hills).

      • DiMono FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold It's Back Baby!

        Ignore the time estimate on the site; expect to spend 5 hours out there. Plan your day accordingly. Wear clothes you don't care about, or else clean them immediately. Don't have pockets. Your shoes will probably be a lost cause; bring spares and donate the dead ones to the pile (you'll see what I mean when you get there).

        You'll be driving to an off-site parking lot and taking a bus to Mt St Louis. Bring I think it's $15 for parking, and include about half an hour on either end for bus transit. You'll be leaving your wallet behind while on the course; keep it appropriately empty, just in case.

        They will offer you food on the course; eat it, you'll need the energy. And the potassium. Completing the course is easier with a team, for many reasons; if you go there alone, try to find people to join up with. Tough Mudder is hard, but remember that you're going there to enjoy yourself; so have fun with it. Lots of people dress up in costumes.

        Most of the obstacles I encountered weren't that difficult; a moderate amount of fitness should be plenty to get you through them. Focus on cardio. Lots and lots of cardio. And don't skip leg day - in fact, add another one. They're going to be taking you up and down hills an awful lot. Compound exercises are better than isolation exercises. You will have to climb over a 7-8' wall in order to get to the course; make sure you can do that, as it's the one obstacle you really can't skip. But don't skip obstacles unless you absolutely have to, because otherwise what's the point?

        That's everything that comes to mind right now.

      You have read the idea I posted, and I see the logic in your words. But I'm fine if they don't use my ideas until 3 years later, I just want to give them something, and be just a small part of this. Because RWBY is something that truly resonates with me.

        I wish you the best of luck, but I wouldn't count on getting an internship with them; it sounds like you've already decided it's going to happen, and you need to realize that a) they need to have such an intern position open, and b) they literally get dozens of resumes and applications a day. Hopefully it will work out the way you want, but assume it won't, and write it yourself.

      • DanielZhu1

        Yes, they probably won't in the next few years, but in 3 years time I will have the qualifications to intern at rooster teeth for 1 summer, maybe it may be possible then
