I don't know about anyone else, but as an American, I've always pronounced it "or-eg-an-oh". Of course, now I'm second guessing, wondering if I'm the one pronouncing it wrong...

Okay so Oregano is orginally a Spanish word, in most of the world it's pronounced like the British way in this video.

Other examples: https://www.collinsdictionary....spanish/oregano (dont listen to the danish one)

Now in Italian the emphasis is different, the emphasis is put much more on the ri sound, which is probably where the non-American pronunciation comes from.
https://www.wordhippo.com/what...ba38c3d4a5.html

While the American way you could argue is more correct, it sounds out of place in english imo which is why I don't like it. It just reminds me of someone trying too hard to impress a waiter at a Mexican restaurant. The Italian way also just sounds way better ngl.

I'm not an expert on linguistics so I could be wrong, but this is just what I figured out from looking at oregano pronunciations for an hour while procrastinating.

Tldr; It's completely up to you. Both are valid for different reasons.

^ Mastodon: It's definitely not a Twitter replacement, it's a lot closer to forums where you have a seperate identity/account for every server you join. So if you want to to talk about VCR Repair, you join an server for VCR repair but then hey, you also want to talk about Spyro, so then you have to find a server for Spyro and make a seperate account for that, and so on. I think the account system and servers leaning to extremism while filter most people, I saw some Pixiv artists talking about a Mastodon instance so I joined and I think I'm on a few lists now. Meanwhile the most popular (english) art instance is extremely over moderated, like having to tag eye contact, food and all caps.

Can't say much about Cohost, gonna try it now.
EDIT: Okay I'm in the trenches, so far it's a surprisingly neat site. It's absolutely tiny though and the navigation is kinda meh, actually finding content is kinda weird. Once you get the hang of the UI it's like a mix of Tumblr and Twitter, it feels pretty homely and the whole site has a 2000's feel to it. I really like the democratic approach the admins have taken, they seem to value user input on rules and how the site is handled so that's cool. If the community sticks and becomes bigger I can see it becoming a great site.

Honest thoughts on poka man scarlet.

I think gameplay wise it's been the most fun time I had with pokemon in a while. The gameplay loop is very fun and seeing your favorite pokemon pop up in the open world is very exciting.

Although a lot of the game can get very samey. A lot of the areas look identical and aren't very distinct. Like you have desert and grass area. There's not that many distinct attractions like past games. Like a power plant or a hot spring or a bridge.

Cities are also wastelands. Cities in past games were cool because most buildings were interactive and felt like a place people could live in. However in sv most buildings are there just for design. However the game is not lifeless like other open world games. There are a lot of npcs I cities and even some in areas. Like at least 4.
Performance wise it's probably the worst performing pokemon game ever. Like there are times where either my controller either don't respond or my character gets stuck standing still. This game also crashed on me once for flying to another area. I don't really care about graphics but some places are just a texture of brown.

I love how they handled the story in this game. It's 3 separate paths where you can tackle the bosses in the 3 separate paths whenever you want. You want to level scale? Just go to an area or boss thats mid level. A harder experience? Go to a harder boss or area. There's also a normal route that the game tells you which feels pretty good. It really does feel like an adventure instead of a linear story because it perfectly evens out each of the 3 stories so the game isn't a main story and 2 side quests.

people online who know nothing about the acting industry think that voice actors and actors are different. if you were to ask most voice actors at a convention or if you meet one and ask "how do I get into voice acting?" most of the time they are gonna say that you should get into theater acting and try to get as many roles as possible. if you're a plumber and only limit your plumbing to just toilets while rejecting other jobs along the way you are just wasting time and money. plus a lot of people think voice acting is just about range. a lot of huge roles such as genie, Nathan drake, and woody are not much different if there is one at all than an actor's "real" voice. voice acting is not entirely just being random cartoon villain who sounds like a smoker. there is also commercial voiceovers, audio books, etc. however that's not to say that every voice actor was pursuing acting first. we live in an age where people can do it as a hobby and get roles in anime or genshin before having a camera in front of their face.

Read watchmen for my anthropology class after having it on my shelf for 5 years. I love how each major character are in the right depending on who you talk to. And how the book can still be relatable to this very day. I also love how weird and cartoony the ending was for such a down to earth story

Ozy is my favorite character because of how[
how bat**** insane he is. His plan the entire book was hiring scientists and comic writers to create a giant alien psychic squid to kill half of new York so world peace can be obtained by uniting humanity. But in order to do that he had to set up a murder Mystery where superheroes were getting offes one by one and to make himself not look sus he hires a hitman to shoot him and puts a poison capsule in said hitman's mouth. He then sees the hitman after a meeting with his secretary. Avoids the bullet allowing it to pierce his secretary and then beats the **** out of the guy he hired to shoot him. But that's not all because when asked about "what would happen if you didn't dodge the bullet?" He says that he would have caught it. Then when silk appears with a gun. He doesn't just dodge the bullet or disarm her. He instead goes for an epic high kick, gets shot, but then reveals that he did infact catch the bullet because he's so ****ing insane and egotistical that he needed an epic moment to show how dominant he is. He was also willing to nuke his cat for like no reason.

Big agree. Like yeah obviously people with psychosis won't always talk like that, people who believe that stuff aren't always necessarily psychotic, and sure it doesn't excuse what he's saying, but it's so obvious that he's having a psychotic breakdown. It's unfortunately very very easy to believe that stuff when your psychosis reaches its absolute low point and you're not being treated.

I hate people saying "he should be killed" because it's obvious that they only care about mentally ill people when they're not being ~problematic~ and so many people's first reaction to a mentally ill person showing bad symptoms is always "he should die" "he should be locked up". People always claim they support mentally ill people until someone starts showing the really bad/untreated symptoms that don't match up with what they think a ~neurodivergent~ person is like.

What he needs is help and treatment and to stay away from social media/interviews until he gets help.

^It’s not all that complicated, really. Does the company or an employee of the company have a recent or ongoing discrimination or harassment lawsuit? Plus one for corporate. Is the game’s development led by someone who is a part of the group the game represents, or do they have a history of supporting or representing this group prior to it becoming popularized as a corporate strategy? Plus one for sincere. Etc., etc.

I mean companies have a strategy of hiring quotas and needing diversity. Every company ever will have bad apples that are involved with scandals because that's just ingrained within our current society. Harassment isn't a problem with one company. It's a problem with the entire industry. And thinking that one person represents an entire company is humanizing corporations which might blind people into feeling sympathy or anger for emotionless money making machines. Because saying that someone should support one company over others is proof that the companies psyops is working.

Its all virtue signaling. But like that doesn't mean its bad. Because it's still normalizing minorites and lgbt or whatever.

I think it depends on how it is done, portrayal and context are very important. Disney advertising their "first gay character" and it is just a character mentioning being gay in a line that could easily be censored is not great - and nor are stereotypes or caricatures of groups good. However, not every example of diverse characters created by companies fall under this, especially in cases where these stories are given input by marginalized people or organizations like GLAAD. And you could even argue that Disney's method of this, regardless of how performative it is, still helps to normalize these concepts to a wider audience.

Edit: this was in reply to sp, clank posted before i finished my reply.

Yeah, no, I definitely won’t argue that every company has its skeletons in the closet, except instead of being in the closet they’re working in cubicles like it’s nobody’s business. I also agree that harassment is a problem with the industry in general. And I definitely don’t think a single person should be seen as representing an entire company. My point was more so that if someone you trust is spearheading the game (I know of literally no examples, I don’t involve myself in the video game industry to know who the good guys are if there are any.) then you can probably trust that it’s not just about the $$$. On the other hand, if the CEO is being sued for sexual harassment and suddenly every game the company releases is about female empowerment in some way, you don’t need to be a rocket scientist to figure out what’s going on.

I said I have no examples, but I did used to know of some video game companies led by women who started their companies with a passion for video games and a desire to make games that were more welcoming to and non-discriminating against women, such as Brianna Wu and Amanda Stenquist Warner, who co-founded Giant Spacekat. I would feel more comfortable with developers like them.

In general though, I think the video game industry is toxic, manipulative, and self-serving, and I definitely did not mean for my last reply to imply anything different.

Tbh tho being able to complain about diversity and what is or isn't virtue signaling is pretty insane. Like we live in a world where some people are still executed for being gay while other parts complain about movies not being gay enough. The fact that we can complain about media not being diverse enough shows that the normalization of representation by brute force is working

I think it depends on how it is done, portrayal and context are very important. Disney advertising their "first gay character" and it is just a character mentioning being gay in a line that could easily be censored is not great - and nor are stereotypes or caricatures of groups good. However, not every example of diverse characters created by companies fall under this, especially in cases where these stories are given input by marginalized people or organizations like GLAAD. And you could even argue that Disney's method of this, regardless of how performative it is, still helps to normalize these concepts to a wider audience.


Tbh tho being able to complain about diversity and what is or isn't virtue signaling is pretty insane. Like we live in a world where some people are still executed for being gay while other parts complain about movies not being gay enough. The fact that we can complain about media not being diverse enough shows that the normalization of representation by brute force is working

It is sort of wild to think about. If you had told me ten years ago that media would be this diverse, I would not have believed you.

I still do believe it is important that representation is done properly, but I do sometimes believe people are weirdly overly critical of certain media with it. There is nuance in those discussions for sure, but a lot of people see it in black and white. For example, how a lot of people say Rocky Horror Picture Show is bad representation purely because they view it with a modern lens rather than putting it in its original context.
