2020.08.28 03:03 HotStress0 How do I deal with project partners who don't do any work?

So I'm currently running a project centered on publishing and showcasing literary works. Our Board of Directors consists of me (co-founder), a girl we'll call Nellie (co-founder), a girl we'll call Nora (Chief of Editing), and a girl we'll call Samantha (Chief of Marketing). I have never met any of them, but we've been working together for a few months.
Our project is still in the process of getting started, so recruiting writers and marketing is very important. We have already received a few submissions, in which we must edit and review before publishing to our website. Although Nellie is supposedly the other co-founder, it was originally me who came up with the idea. Nellie also recruited Nora, who is her personal friend.
My problem:
I don't know how else to word this, so I'm just going to lay it straight. Nellie has done close to zero work and doesn't respond to my texts. While Nora still helps out a little, she does not keep promises and fails to edit pieces (which is her only job).
Since Nellie and I are the co-founders, it's up to us to help Samantha with marketing, recruiting, and partnerships. However, at this point, it's only Samantha and I who even lift our fingers. Nellie has not done a single thing to help us maintain our social media, recruit new writers, edit pieces, or respond to emails. On top of that, she has failed to keep her (multiple) promises of giving me Slack emails so that I can carry her weight and recruit more writers. She has also failed to even post the "several" Instagram posts she promised she had finished. It's not like I'm asking her to do a lot. I'm only asking her to carry just 20% of the weight. Things like sending over Slack emails or responding to my text messages aren't that hard to do. In addition, whenever I'm successful in getting a new partnership or whatnot and I text the groupchat, she always responds with "yay!!", or "sorry :( I don't think that's a good idea" when I ask them a question. Why does she think her opinion matters when she doesn't even contribute 1 minute of her time a week?
Along with that, Nora's only job is to edit the article submissions that we get (which are very few). However, she can't even take the time out of her day to do so, even after giving her word. It always ends up with me not only carrying her weight, but also Nellie's and then some more.
I'm pretty heated right now so I probably sound a little aggressive, which might make you wonder if my attitude is the problem. However, I can assure you that I'm very level-headed and reasonable with them and have stopped texting once they stopped responding (so it's not like I'm badgering them with texts).
What do I do? Normally, I'm a pretty upfront person, however I find it hard to confront them about this for some reason. While their inability to help out hasn't directly hurt the project, I'm getting tired of having to balance my already hectic life with this project that I'm passionate about.

2020.08.07 17:12 ND_PC Total Madness Player Playlists: Jenny West

Happy Friday, and welcome to the final installment of my playlist tribute series for Total Madness! The Jenny playlist is in a table at the bottom of this post.
ICYMI, I've made a playlist for each player on Season 35 as their time ended on the show. Each player got a playlist of about 25 songs whose lyrics, mood, or simply the title worked together to reflect/honor his or her personality, profile, and narrative. Some of the playlists have been musically consistent and sonically cohesive (Wes's comes to mind), others have been more catered to a player's career arc or season narrative (Jordan's, CT's, Jenna's, Dee's, and Kailah's are good examples), and still others have done a good job reflecting the player's personality (Nany's, Kyle's, and Ashley's - Ashley herself even approved hers!). As for the rest, well, they at least tried to accomplish one or a few of these things, and they all did to some extent, but some wound up being more shitposty than others, usually depending on how I was feeling that week. The first few especially were pretty shitposty because Asaf and Jenn gave us little to no source material from which to pull - I don't watch any feeder shows so I do this based only on their time on the Challenge.
Today is the debut of the last playlist in the Total Madness tribute series, the Jenny West playlist. Much like Jenny's mindset this season, I went into this playlist with a mindset singularly focused on winning. From the beginning of the season, Jenny made it clear that she was here to win, over literally anything else. She wasn't here for friendship, although that helped her along the way. She wasn't here to show off her physical dominance (cough Fessy cough), although of course, that was a tool she employed. Her goal was to win. It was a highly specific goal. There are so many things tied to this goal that were not her actual goal. Her goal was not to embarrass her opponents, be thrown into elimination the least, make the most tribunals, have the best confessionals, make a final, or even to take home prize money (a byproduct of winning) - it was to win. And this playlist is all about winning.
Look, Jenny's edit was kind of thrown by the wayside when Dee was edited out of the show. Their beef was never played out on screen so what we got from Jenny all season was her realizing Dee may be an obstacle that could prevent her from winning. Aside from that, we got the fact that she talks a lot and that she has a lot of friends. She is a kind person who also trained in math and running while carrying heavy things, and it paid off. She has almost no narrative because as each domino of the season fell, it became more and more clear that she would have almost no problem demolishing the other players on the women's side. While there are never any guarantees, Jenny was fast-tracked to the final and once she was there her competition's brains or bodies didn't hold up. So, on this playlist, you can expect songs about winning, about giving it your all, about throwing caution to the wind, about celebrating, and about being a champion. It's thematically very consistent, but musically it sort of bounces around. Also before you ask, the song "Guinea Pig Olympics" was included because Jenny always uses it in her Instagram stories. I have never used a Challenger's social media account to influence my playlist for them, but I have no reason not to start now.
Thanks to everyone who gave any suggestions for this or any of my other playlists. On this list, I added songs by Taylor Swift, The Beatles, The Kinks, and Pixies because either those bands or the specific songs were requested. Plenty of other requests have been honored on my playlists throughout the season, which was such a fun part of making this series. I really, really like music and I love it when I get to include other people's music tastes in my experience of music.
If you have any questions about specific song choices, as always, I'm happy to answer them. If you want to listen to any of the other playlists in this series, here they all are: Asaf, Jenn, CT, Ashley, Jay, Tori, Jordan, Bear, Big T, Kailah, Jenna, Wes, Mattie, Swaggy, Nany, Aneesa, Josh, Dee, Nelson, Melissa, Rogan, Bayleigh, Kaycee, Fessy, Cory, Kyle, Bananas.
Finally, if you need or prefer to read Jenny's playlist here rather than on Spotify, then boy oh boy have I got the table for you:

WIN Jay Rock
You're The Best Joe "Bean" Esposito
Never Say Die CHVRCHES

2020.07.29 15:51 ND_PC Total Madness Player Playlists: Faysal "Fessy" Shafaat

Hey, fellow Challenge fans! Welcome to the latest addition to my Player Playlist tribute series for Total Madness! The songs on the Fessy list are conveniently located in a table at the bottom of this post.
As you may or may not know, this playlist series aims to honor each competitor on Total Madness, one 25-song (or so) playlist at a time. Using lyrics, mood, or in some cases even song titles, I attempt to capture a player's profile, personality, and season narrative with the playlist. I'm releasing the lists in reverse finishing order, and Fessy's drops today! That means Cory is next on Friday, followed by Kyle, Bananas, and Jenny next week on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday respectively.
If you read my post yesterday about Kaycee, you witnessed me grappling with the fact that a Challenger I thought I liked was actually wallpaper. Could this be true for Fessy, too? I just changed my flair to a picture of Fessy and a Fessy quote last week, so I'm in a state of denial about his lack of good source material from which to create a playlist. If I'm comparing him to Kaycee, I'd say he had better one-liners and a more unobjectionably dominant physical presence. He didn't have as much drama, and they both had like half a personal cause for being on the show (Kaycee spoke about LGBT representation, and Fessy spoke about redemption for not being in the NFL, and briefly with Cory, he spoke about being discriminated against for his Arab heritage). They each had basically one (1) major associate on the show, with Kaycee becoming close with Nany and Fessy hanging around Cory. Aaaand, for both of them, that's about it. What can I say? I like them both, but I guess there's not a ton to go on for either of them.
Yet, I'm still pretty proud of the Fessy Playlist, which wound up mostly being high-octane workout songs. It has some songs about football, sure, but it's mostly a playlist full of pump-up songs. I included "Live and Let Die" as a reference to the episode title when Fessy demolished Jordan in a lopsided pole wrestle. I included "Ridin' Solo" because from what I understand Fessy is single now. Basically all he does in his Instagram stories is a workout, though, so I included a bunch of rock and hip hop songs that would get your heart pumping. Actually, I had to eliminate quite a few songs and stored some of the last songs I cut in the Fessy overflow list. You'll find those songs to be more of the same - pump up songs tailor-made for a good workout or to hype up a person before competition.
So, is the playlist one-dimensional? Yes. Am I usually disappointed when that happens? Yes. Am I disappointed in this case? No! Fessy showed himself to be pretty one-dimensional this season. I liked him, but it was the same with him every single week.
As always, thanks for reading. I love talking about music, so if there are any songs on this list you'd like to discuss, fire away. I'd also love to hear any of your suggestions for Cory, Kyle, Johnny, and Jenny. Especially because my real-life friend u/MandyMTV was the opposite of helpful when I tried to ask her for Fessy inspiration, I will gladly accept any and all song recs that you guys can provide.
(Actual text convo of me asking Mandy for help:
Me: "Help I know nothing about Fessy except that he didn't make the NFL"
Mandy: "I know that he's hot"
Thanks, Mandy!)
If you're interested in any of my previous Total Madness playlists, here they are: Asaf, Jenn, CT, Ashley, Jay, Tori, Jordan, Bear, Big T, Kailah, Jenna, Wes, Mattie, Swaggy, Nany, Aneesa, Josh, Dee, Nelson, Melissa, Rogan, Bayleigh, Kaycee. Ashley's got the seal of approval from Ashley herself, but CT's/Jordan's/Jenna's seem to be the ones Redditors like the most. I personally am a big fan of those and Dee's and Tori's, although I of course like them all because I made them.
If you need or prefer to read the Fessy playlist here rather than opening it on Spotify, here it is:

2020.07.23 16:06 portopinto Opening Day 2020: Crowd Noise Not Included - Happy Opening Day! I made a playlist using only songs from MLB's Walk-Up Music Database.

Opening Day 2020: Crowd Noise Not Included
Last week I was watching an intrasquad game between the Tigers and the Tigers when I heard a song I didn't recognize begin to play when Christin Stewart came to the plate. I still don't know what song it was, but I did stumble across the MLB Walk-Up Music Database.
Opening Day is an incredible day in Detroit, even during a rebuild. Unfortunately, 2020 won't let us have nice things, but I still wanted to put together a playlist to mark the occasion. This year, I decided to use only songs from the MLB Walk-Up Music Database. I didn't expect to find any deep cuts, though there were actually a few (Gangstarr ft. Inspectah Deck - Above the Clouds), but that was alright because Opening Day parties tend to attract a fairly diverse crowd and any playlists for today should prioritize crowd pleasers over indieheads favorites.
Before we get to the tracks, I just want to point out that the database has not been updated to reflect current rosters, so you'll still see Josh Donaldson on the Braves and players that have opted out appear as well.
It's worth noting that I went through the database in alphabetical order by team, so when Archie Bradley and Lewis Brinson both have Jay-Z's Public Service Announcement listed I attributed it to Bradley. This does slightly skew the total number of songs by each team in favor of teams closer to the beginning of the alphabet, but with the exception of a few songs that appeared often there were not as many duplicates as I expected.
This is not every song listed in the database. Nor did I listen to every song in the database. I've got a pretty eclectic taste in music, but a lot of that goes out the window when limiting yourself to a certain catalog of songs. That being said, Latin music is one genre I'll freely admit I'm not altogether too familiar with. When I saw a Latin artist appear over and over, or something like an album cover or track title caught my attention I gave them a listen. You'll definitely find more Latin tracks here (9) than country (0). While I love outlaw and classic country music, you'll find next to none of that in the database and the country I did come across isn't my taste.
My main goal was to make a playlist full of songs that appealed to the widest range of fans. That being said, I did try to keep my opening day crew in mind, and I still had to at least somewhat enjoy the song. Two artists, Post Malone and Travis Scott, appeared quite a bit in the database, but because they don't move the needle for me personally, you won't find them on the playlist. That's not to say that I excluded all trap. I've personally watched Trap Queen get a party started so Erick Fedde's walk-up song makes the cut.

I think a great walk-up song is something that gets the crowd excited, is still somewhat unique, and of course appeals to my personal taste. While not necessarily my favorite songs on the playlist, below are my three favorite choices for walk-up songs:
  1. Kyle Schwarber: Thuggish Ruggish Bone - Bone Thugs-N-Harmony
  2. Steven Brault: Come Down - Anderson .Paak
  3. Shohei Ohtani: Gettin' It - Too $hort

A few observations and highlights:

Two teams don't have any players' walk-up songs making the cut. With the Red Sox, I could have worked in X Gon' Give It To Ya, or Petty's I Won't Back Down, but early on (Boston being one of the first teams I went through) I didn't feel either really fit the playlist I was going for. In retrospect, both probably work. However, this did open it up for me to include the first of a few cheat songs. Opening Day is too fun to leave a team out, so to make up for the lack of Red Sox tunes, and knowing everybody loves MVP Baseball 2005, I decided to include Tessie by Dropkick Murphys.
Other cheat songs: or *'s
  1. Run On by Moby - My original goal was to limit the playlist to a single song for each artist. I didn't make it past Cleveland before I decided to break this rule. So when I got to the White Sox, I already had a J Cole song and a Kanye Song. Luckily, MLB game winner, Ryan Burr, had a great Johnny Cash song, God's Gonna Cut You Down, listed as his walk-up song. Knowing Moby's Run On relies heavily on a sample of this song, I decided to get creative. This was the closest country came to making the playlist.
  2. Back Into Time by Nightmares on Wax - This pick is inspired by Steven Matz. Of course he has Steve Miller's original version of Fly Like an Eagle listed. While the original is a great song, I'm choosing to be a bit selfish here and put on my favorite version. Personally I find this one a bit more fun, and I don't care for the outro at the end of Miller's version.
  3. Da Rockwilder by Method Man and Redman - Here I got the loosest with my rules. Miguel Sano actually has a Redman deep cut Let Da Monkey Out listed in the database. I would have loved to throw this on, but unfortunately it's unavailable on Spotify. There is a live version, it just doesn't sound great in my opinion. Da Rockwilder is Jim Thome coming off the bench to pinch hit.
  4. Bennie and the Jets by Elton John - Ben Zobrist may be the only player to walk up to a song performed by their spouse. No, one of the most versatile players in the league isn't married to Elton John, but rather Julianna Zobrist. Mrs. Zobrist, with Sir Elton's blessing, covers this classic from Goodbye Yellow Brick Road. I didn't include the cover version for a couple of reasons, the nicest being that her version isn't available on Spotify.
  5. Voodoo Child (Slight Return) by Jimi Hendrix - To be fair, James Pazos has the equally great "Voodoo Chile" listed in the database, but no song brought down Comerica Park quite like this spacier, faster version when Joel Zumaya came charging in from the bullpen, and that's the version you'll find here.
  6. Welcome to the Show by J Dilla - Sign me to the Astros because I've cheated again. Pete Alonso has a Cody Johnson track listed by the same name, but it doesn't make sense for this playlist and again country music does not get a call up to the show. I love baseball, but I'm a Tigers fan first. We're coming off a 114-loss season; I saw a chance to work in a Detroit connection and you're just going to have to let me have this one.
  7. Valley of the Dolls by Santigold - Unfortunately, Yan Gomes' actual pick Brooklyn Go Hard by Jay-Z and Santigold isn't available on Spotify. I've tried to keep the cheating to a minimum, but this playlist is seriously lacking in female voices and if I get a chance to work Santigold into a mix then I'm going to take it.

Other notable tracks:
  1. Vivimo Caro by Jose Reyes - Yep, that Jose Reyes. At first I thought Ketel Marte had to be the only All-Star in baseball walking up to a song recorded by a former batting champ. Nope, Acuña also walks up to a Reyes track. Though he has yet to release a complete album, that didn't stop a slew of players from trying to channel the 4x all-star through their walk-up song.
  2. Jalapeño by El Alfa - Gregory Soto and Robinson Cano share the wildest song on this playlist. In fact, it inspired me to install a new Opening Day tradition. Everytime this song comes up at your opening day tailgate do a shot of habanero-infused tequila. Seriously, it's incredibly easy to make and you still have time to get it ready for your socially distanced get together. Take six habaneros and halve them lengthwise. Combine the peppers and a fifth of blanco tequila (Anything is fine, just make sure it's 100% agave - I like Lunazul) in a glass jar and let sit for one hour. Using a funnel, strain the teuila through a fine-mesh sieve back into the bottle.
  3. Rest in Peace (Undertaker Theme) by Jim Johnston - Hansel Robles gets my pick for most creative pick. I love the idea of him coming to the plate to the same track the Undertaker uses to enter the ring.
  4. Going the Distance (From Rocky) by Bill Conti - Does it slow down the playlist? Absolutely. Does a cut from the Rocky score deserve a spot on this playlist? Again, absolutely. I thought about putting Puff Daddy's Victory here, because it samples the Conti piece, but I've had a lot of fun putting together this playlist and this song only adds to that fun.
  5. Above the Clouds by Gang Starr- Pitching in the A.L. last year, Adam Plutko only came to the plate twice, but he wanted everybody in the stands to know he was a hip-hop head. I used to live between two bars in Detroit; one, I now tailgate behind on Opening Day and I used to shoot pool in the other while Gang Starr played on the Jukebox. Easy pick here.
  6. Touch the Sky by Kanye West - With five tracks and a feature, Kanye appears the most on this playlist. Once I decided to break the rules, I fully expected Kanye to end up with a little black ink. I'm choosing to highlight Ian Desmond's walk-up song because he had one of the most important responses to all things 2020. I'm only too happy to find a way to work him into the season.
  7. Chambea by Bad Bunny - By the time I got to the Cubs, I had already seen the name Bad Bunny pop up a handful of times. It would have been a huge disservice to my former fantasy MVP Javier Baez if I chose to continue skipping over the name Bad Bunny. Additionally, Bad Bunny shows up again because my favorite player, and happiest player in baseball Miguel Cabrera, is also a fan and his song goes in by default. My in-laws are Mexican, and after taking the Triple Crown in flip cup (Wins, flip percentage, "whooos") prima Tina will inevitably start requesting Mexican music. This year, I got you Tina. The best part about having Mexican family is Fiesta Tigres or as I like to call it, Opening Day 2: Boogaloo Eléctrico.
  8. Work to Do by The Isley Brothers - Color me surprised, I did not take the Canadian born future hall of famer to be a fan of The Isley Brothers. It's a jam and I've always been a big fan of Votto so this easily makes the mix.
  9. Oh No (What You Got) by Justin Timberlake - I wasn't familiar with this song, but that is an unmistakable Timbaland beat and this Justin Turner pick fits well on an Opening Day playlist.
  10. Word Up by Cameo - Word Up can be fun, but it's mostly included here because I'll use any excuse to bring up how amazing of a person Curtis Granderson is. He will always be a Tigers favorite, and by all accounts he's well loved by both New York fanbases, surely a rare feat.
  11. Ignition Remix by R. Kelly - The argument of separating the man from the music is always interesting. As far as I know, though I haven't followed it that closely, R. Kelly has not been convicted of the sexual crimes which he has been accused. If I'm wrong, feel free to correct me. What he's been accused of is fucking disgusting, but for now, this Kyle McGrath pick makes the list. In light of his recent anti-semitic social media posts, this is probably a good time to point out that Ice Cube's Friday also appears on the playlist courtesy of Taijuan Walker.
  12. Got to Give it Up (Pt. 1) by Marvin Gaye - If you're having a party and this song isn't on your playlist are you really having a party? Delino DeShields and his teammate Joey Gallo really help this playlist take shape with this track and three others (Pony, No Diggity, Hip Hop Hooray). All four are the exact type of song you want for a crowd pleasing Opening Day playlist.
  13. Go Head by Gucci Mane - In my first Detroit loft, my upstairs neighbor would come home, crank up the Gucci Mane and throw coins all over her floomy ceiling. In the mornings she would rip farts so loud they still echo in my ears. This one's for you. Sadly, this was Gordon Beckham's biggest hit in 2019.
  14. K.R.I.T. Here by Big K.R.I.T. - I did not expect to see my favorite song of 2019 show up in the database, so this Brian Goodwin selection definitely qualifies as notable for me.
  15. Rubber Band Man by T.I. - This was the hardest choice to make; do I choose between the radio edit or the album version with the over one-minute long outro. Where Joe Kelly's pick, Snoop's Lay Low, gets a pass thanks to the rule that states you can never have enough Nate Dogg hooks on a playlist, this outro skit is too long and therefore the radio edit finds its way onto the playlist.
  16. Tops Drop by Fat Pat - I don't even have to look it up; if Robbie Grossman didn't grow up in Texas I'll eat my cleat.
  17. Down for My Niggaz by C-Murder - When Dalton Pompey steps to the plate at Rogers Centre, I'm going to assume they play the instrumental. No way there is a section of this song that is crowd friendly. Works like magic for me in the Nemo's parking lot.
  18. Stone Love by Pepper - Jordan Luplow has two songs listed in the database, this one, and a Wiz Khalifa track. Luplow can come smoke at my tailgate anytime. Likewise, including 311 and Rebelution might blow the cover for some in my crew, but getting blowed is another great American pastime.
  19. Icky Thump by White Stripes - In Detroit, Alex Avila walked up to The Black Keys' I Got Mine, so he clearly has an affinity for late 2000s blues rock. Despite his best efforts, it seems Jack White cannot escape being forever tied to his rock rivals from Ohio. Forever a fan favorite, maybe Avila just misses Detroit, so I'm a big fan of the White Stripes pick here.
  20. Bridge Burning by Foo Fighters - I'd be remiss if I didn't mention my cousin James who puts together our entire opening day party. He's a huge Foo Fighters fan, so this one is for you cuzzo. Many thanks to Dan Otero.
  21. Enter Sandman by Metallica - Thanks to Mariano Rivera, Enter Sandman is forever an iconic baseball song and thus a great song for this playlist. Here it shows up courtesy of Danny Salazar.
  22. Brother Louie by Stories - Luis Guillorme gets a ton of credit for picking a song that works in his name. Either that or he's a huge Louis C.K. fan. I bet this one is a lot of fun at Citi Field.
  23. We Will Rock You by Queen, Breathe by The Prodigy, Killing in the Name by Rage Against the Machine - Liam Hendriks walks up to a mashup of these three with some Skrillex added just for fun. Nobody bats a 1.000, but 3/4 ain't bad.

Back of the card stats

In total there are 158 songs ready to soundtrack more than 10 hours of your Opening Day.
I kept the genres simple:
Genre Number of Songs
Electronic 6
Latin 9
Other 2
R&B 14
Rap 80
Reggae 6
Rock 41

I've read that some hitters get so in the zone that they really don't pay attention to their walk-up music. Perhaps this explains the greater number of pitchers that appeared in the database. They come to the plate far less, sometimes just a handful of times, and therefore give a lot of thought to their walk-up music.
Least unique songs: These songs that made the playlist roster appeared in the database for multiple players. Players not listed first were excluded from the by position data.

Opening Day Roster: With only two games on the docket I wanted to add one more. Below are the rosters for the Jukebox Heroes and the Bad Hop Boppers. The Jukebox heroes are made up of players that had my favorite song at each position while the BHP roster has the best remaining player at each position. Naturally, (First base) I had to make the Jukebox Heroes first to at least keep the rosters competitive. This is why you'll find Scherzer on the favorite song roster despite being the best pitcher in the database. Lucky for the home team, I'm an Outkast fan. I also excluded players that weren't regulars, had a negative war, or were now playing in Korea. This is why you won't find Josh Rojas, and Adam Jones patrolling the outfield next to Brian Goodwin. And this is why you won't see Khris Davis penciled in at the DH. In the end, this really helped balance the rosters; especially considering the noticeable drop off in arm talent once Scherzer is removed from the pool. Sneaking Schwarber in behind the dish didn't hurt either. He played one game there in 2019, and I'll use him here to play the first game of 2020.

Opening Day 2020: Crowd Noise Not Included - Happy Opening Day! I made a playlist using only songs from MLB's Walk-Up Music Database.
Opening Day 2020: Crowd Noise Not Included
Last week I was watching an intrasquad game between the Tigers and the Tigers when I heard a song I didn't recognize begin to play when Christin Stewart came to the plate. I still don't know what song it was, but I did stumble across the MLB Walk-Up Music Database.
Opening Day is an incredible day in Detroit, even during a rebuild. Unfortunately, 2020 won't let us have nice things, but I still wanted to put together a playlist to mark the occasion. This year, I decided to use only songs from the MLB Walk-Up Music Database. I didn't expect to find any deep cuts, though there were actually a few (Gangstarr ft. Inspectah Deck - Above the Clouds), but that was alright because Opening Day parties tend to attract a fairly diverse crowd and any playlists for today should prioritize crowd pleasers over indieheads favorites.
Before we get to the tracks, I just want to point out that the database has not been updated to reflect current rosters, so you'll still see Josh Donaldson on the Braves and players that have opted out appear as well.
It's worth noting that I went through the database in alphabetical order by team, so when Archie Bradley and Lewis Brinson both have Jay-Z's Public Service Announcement listed I attributed it to Bradley. This does slightly skew the total number of songs by each team in favor of teams closer to the beginning of the alphabet, but with the exception of a few songs that appeared often there were not as many duplicates as I expected.
This is not every song listed in the database. Nor did I listen to every song in the database. I've got a pretty eclectic taste in music, but a lot of that goes out the window when limiting yourself to a certain catalog of songs. That being said, Latin music is one genre I'll freely admit I'm not altogether too familiar with. When I saw a Latin artist appear over and over, or something like an album cover or track title caught my attention I gave them a listen. You'll definitely find more Latin tracks here (9) than country (0). While I love outlaw and classic country music, you'll find next to none of that in the database and the country I did come across isn't my taste.
My main goal was to make a playlist full of songs that appealed to the widest range of fans. That being said, I did try to keep my opening day crew in mind, and I still had to at least somewhat enjoy the song. Two artists, Post Malone and Travis Scott, appeared quite a bit in the database, but because they don't move the needle for me personally, you won't find them on the playlist. That's not to say that I excluded all trap. I've personally watched Trap Queen get a party started so Erick Fedde's walk-up song makes the cut.

I think a great walk-up song is something that gets the crowd excited, is still somewhat unique, and of course appeals to my personal taste. While not necessarily my favorite songs on the playlist, below are my three favorite choices for walk-up songs:
  1. Kyle Schwarber: Thuggish Ruggish Bone - Bone Thugs-N-Harmony
  2. Steven Brault: Come Down - Anderson .Paak
  3. Shohei Ohtani: Gettin' It - Too $hort

A few observations and highlights:

Two teams don't have any players' walk-up songs making the cut. With the Red Sox, I could have worked in X Gon' Give It To Ya, or Petty's I Won't Back Down, but early on (Boston being one of the first teams I went through) I didn't feel either really fit the playlist I was going for. In retrospect, both probably work. However, this did open it up for me to include the first of a few cheat songs. Opening Day is too fun to leave a team out, so to make up for the lack of Red Sox tunes, and knowing everybody loves MVP Baseball 2005, I decided to include Tessie by Dropkick Murphys.
Other cheat songs: or *'s
  1. Run On by Moby - My original goal was to limit the playlist to a single song for each artist. I didn't make it past Cleveland before I decided to break this rule. So when I got to the White Sox, I already had a J Cole song and a Kanye Song. Luckily, MLB game winner, Ryan Burr, had a great Johnny Cash song, God's Gonna Cut You Down, listed as his walk-up song. Knowing Moby's Run On relies heavily on a sample of this song, I decided to get creative. This was the closest country came to making the playlist.
  2. Back Into Time by Nightmares on Wax - This pick is inspired by Steven Matz. Of course he has Steve Miller's original version of Fly Like an Eagle listed. While the original is a great song, I'm choosing to be a bit selfish here and put on my favorite version. Personally I find this one a bit more fun, and I don't care for the outro at the end of Miller's version.
  3. Da Rockwilder by Method Man and Redman - Here I got the loosest with my rules. Miguel Sano actually has a Redman deep cut Let Da Monkey Out listed in the database. I would have loved to throw this on, but unfortunately it's unavailable on Spotify. There is a live version, it just doesn't sound great in my opinion. Da Rockwilder is Jim Thome coming off the bench to pinch hit.
  4. Bennie and the Jets by Elton John - Ben Zobrist may be the only player to walk up to a song performed by their spouse. No, one of the most versatile players in the league isn't married to Elton John, but rather Julianna Zobrist. Mrs. Zobrist, with Sir Elton's blessing, covers this classic from Goodbye Yellow Brick Road. I didn't include the cover version for a couple of reasons, the nicest being that her version isn't available on Spotify.
  5. Voodoo Child (Slight Return) by Jimi Hendrix - To be fair, James Pazos has the equally great "Voodoo Chile" listed in the database, but no song brought down Comerica Park quite like this spacier, faster version when Joel Zumaya came charging in from the bullpen, and that's the version you'll find here.
  6. Welcome to the Show by J Dilla - Sign me to the Astros because I've cheated again. Pete Alonso has a Cody Johnson track listed by the same name, but it doesn't make sense for this playlist and again country music does not get a call up to the show. I love baseball, but I'm a Tigers fan first. We're coming off a 114-loss season; I saw a chance to work in a Detroit connection and you're just going to have to let me have this one.
  7. Valley of the Dolls by Santigold - Unfortunately, Yan Gomes' actual pick Brooklyn Go Hard by Jay-Z and Santigold isn't available on Spotify. I've tried to keep the cheating to a minimum, but this playlist is seriously lacking in female voices and if I get a chance to work Santigold into a mix then I'm going to take it.

Other notable tracks:
  1. Vivimo Caro by Jose Reyes - Yep, that Jose Reyes. At first I thought Ketel Marte had to be the only All-Star in baseball walking up to a song recorded by a former batting champ. Nope, Acuña also walks up to a Reyes track. Though he has yet to release a complete album, that didn't stop a slew of players from trying to channel the 4x all-star through their walk-up song.
  2. Jalapeño by El Alfa - Gregory Soto and Robinson Cano share the wildest song on this playlist. In fact, it inspired me to install a new Opening Day tradition. Everytime this song comes up at your opening day tailgate do a shot of habanero-infused tequila. Seriously, it's incredibly easy to make and you still have time to get it ready for your socially distanced get together. Take six habaneros and halve them lengthwise. Combine the peppers and a fifth of blanco tequila (Anything is fine, just make sure it's 100% agave - I like Lunazul) in a glass jar and let sit for one hour. Using a funnel, strain the teuila through a fine-mesh sieve back into the bottle.
  3. Rest in Peace (Undertaker Theme) by Jim Johnston - Hansel Robles gets my pick for most creative pick. I love the idea of him coming to the plate to the same track the Undertaker uses to enter the ring.
  4. Going the Distance (From Rocky) by Bill Conti - Does it slow down the playlist? Absolutely. Does a cut from the Rocky score deserve a spot on this playlist? Again, absolutely. I thought about putting Puff Daddy's Victory here, because it samples the Conti piece, but I've had a lot of fun putting together this playlist and this song only adds to that fun.
  5. Above the Clouds by Gang Starr- Pitching in the A.L. last year, Adam Plutko only came to the plate twice, but he wanted everybody in the stands to know he was a hip-hop head. I used to live between two bars in Detroit; one, I now tailgate behind on Opening Day and I used to shoot pool in the other while Gang Starr played on the Jukebox. Easy pick here.
  6. Touch the Sky by Kanye West - With five tracks and a feature, Kanye appears the most on this playlist. Once I decided to break the rules, I fully expected Kanye to end up with a little black ink. I'm choosing to highlight Ian Desmond's walk-up song because he had one of the most important responses to all things 2020. I'm only too happy to find a way to work him into the season.
  7. Chambea by Bad Bunny - By the time I got to the Cubs, I had already seen the name Bad Bunny pop up a handful of times. It would have been a huge disservice to my former fantasy MVP Javier Baez if I chose to continue skipping over the name Bad Bunny. Additionally, Bad Bunny shows up again because my favorite player, and happiest player in baseball Miguel Cabrera, is also a fan and his song goes in by default. My in-laws are Mexican, and after taking the Triple Crown in flip cup (Wins, flip percentage, "whooos") prima Tina will inevitably start requesting Mexican music. This year, I got you Tina. The best part about having Mexican family is Fiesta Tigres or as I like to call it, Opening Day 2: Boogaloo Eléctrico.
  8. Work to Do by The Isley Brothers - Color me surprised, I did not take the Canadian born future hall of famer to be a fan of The Isley Brothers. It's a jam and I've always been a big fan of Votto so this easily makes the mix.
  9. Oh No (What You Got) by Justin Timberlake - I wasn't familiar with this song, but that is an unmistakable Timbaland beat and this Justin Turner pick fits well on an Opening Day playlist.
  10. Word Up by Cameo - Word Up can be fun, but it's mostly included here because I'll use any excuse to bring up how amazing of a person Curtis Granderson is. He will always be a Tigers favorite, and by all accounts he's well loved by both New York fanbases, surely a rare feat.
  11. Ignition Remix by R. Kelly - The argument of separating the man from the music is always interesting. As far as I know, though I haven't followed it that closely, R. Kelly has not been convicted of the sexual crimes which he has been accused. If I'm wrong, feel free to correct me. What he's been accused of is fucking disgusting, but for now, this Kyle McGrath pick makes the list. In light of his recent anti-semitic social media posts, this is probably a good time to point out that Ice Cube's Friday also appears on the playlist courtesy of Taijuan Walker.
  12. Got to Give it Up (Pt. 1) by Marvin Gaye - If you're having a party and this song isn't on your playlist are you really having a party? Delino DeShields and his teammate Joey Gallo really help this playlist take shape with this track and three others (Pony, No Diggity, Hip Hop Hooray). All four are the exact type of song you want for a crowd pleasing Opening Day playlist.
  13. Go Head by Gucci Mane - In my first Detroit loft, my upstairs neighbor would come home, crank up the Gucci Mane and throw coins all over her floomy ceiling. In the mornings she would rip farts so loud they still echo in my ears. This one's for you. Sadly, this was Gordon Beckham's biggest hit in 2019.
  14. K.R.I.T. Here by Big K.R.I.T. - I did not expect to see my favorite song of 2019 show up in the database, so this Brian Goodwin selection definitely qualifies as notable for me.
  15. Rubber Band Man by T.I. - This was the hardest choice to make; do I choose between the radio edit or the album version with the over one-minute long outro. Where Joe Kelly's pick, Snoop's Lay Low, gets a pass thanks to the rule that states you can never have enough Nate Dogg hooks on a playlist, this outro skit is too long and therefore the radio edit finds its way onto the playlist.
  16. Tops Drop by Fat Pat - I don't even have to look it up; if Robbie Grossman didn't grow up in Texas I'll eat my cleat.
  17. Down for My Niggaz by C-Murder - When Dalton Pompey steps to the plate at Rogers Centre, I'm going to assume they play the instrumental. No way there is a section of this song that is crowd friendly. Works like magic for me in the Nemo's parking lot.
  18. Stone Love by Pepper - Jordan Luplow has two songs listed in the database, this one, and a Wiz Khalifa track. Luplow can come smoke at my tailgate anytime. Likewise, including 311 and Rebelution might blow the cover for some in my crew, but getting blowed is another great American pastime.
  19. Icky Thump by White Stripes - In Detroit, Alex Avila walked up to The Black Keys' I Got Mine, so he clearly has an affinity for late 2000s blues rock. Despite his best efforts, it seems Jack White cannot escape being forever tied to his rock rivals from Ohio. Forever a fan favorite, maybe Avila just misses Detroit, so I'm a big fan of the White Stripes pick here.
  20. Bridge Burning by Foo Fighters - I'd be remiss if I didn't mention my cousin James who puts together our entire opening day party. He's a huge Foo Fighters fan, so this one is for you cuzzo. Many thanks to Dan Otero.
  21. Enter Sandman by Metallica - Thanks to Mariano Rivera, Enter Sandman is forever an iconic baseball song and thus a great song for this playlist. Here it shows up courtesy of Danny Salazar.
  22. Brother Louie by Stories - Luis Guillorme gets a ton of credit for picking a song that works in his name. Either that or he's a huge Louis C.K. fan. I bet this one is a lot of fun at Citi Field.
  23. We Will Rock You by Queen, Breathe by The Prodigy, Killing in the Name by Rage Against the Machine - Liam Hendriks walks up to a mashup of these three with some Skrillex added just for fun. Nobody bats a 1.000, but 3/4 ain't bad.

2020.06.25 07:22 uchihauzumaki Unpopular Opinion: Serena doesn’t deserve the hate that she gets.

First of all,
Im on season 3 so don’t come for me cuz my opinion might change.
A lot of people dislike Serena for various reasons; sleeping with Nate while he was with Blair, Her lack of self awareness, her dumb mistakes and so on. However, I feel like the hate that Serena receive is a little bit too much especially when there’s characters that are 100292x worse than her. The hate for Serena is hypocritical many level.
People come for her when their favorite characters are just as bad. Heck Blair fans come for Serena when Blair is even worse.
1) Concerning her dating behaviors.
People always point out Serena’s dating life. However people seems to forget that, Serena was young in Gossip Girl. She was between 17 to her early 20s during the season. Nobody at that age has it all figured it out, it was evident that she’s make terrible mistakes.
One thing people mention in particular, is her sleeping with Nate behind Blair’s back. Her sleeping with her bff’s boyfriend is trashy and unforgivable.
However, Blair forgave her. Also Blair (who is loved by the fandom for fil what reason), DATED Dan and Was messaging with Nate while he was with Vanessa.
Yes, Vanessa, wasn’t Blair’s friend but knowingly messing with somebody’s boyfriend is vile and you’d think that someone who had been cheated on would have more sympathy.
Also Yes, Serena did slept with Nate but she was remorseful of it. She literally went to boarding school because of it. She acknowledge what she’s done wasn’t okay , and while that was a terrible way of handling the situation, Serena had enough decency to feel a reasonable guilt and discomfort with the idea of seeing Blair everyday knowing what she did.
Blair I’m the other hand, Dated the guy that was significant to her. Sleeping with your bff’s boyfriend is awful, but DATING your bff’s ex who was meaningful to her is awful too.
Also , people point out the fact that Serena had many partner throughout the series although Nate dated many women (in this sub people acknowledge it but on not really Instagram , Chuck messed with a lot of women (it’s always hinted that he had a lot of partners).
At this point , people need to let the woman live. Heck Lily had three pages full of partners and people didn’t come for her like that.
2) Thé Hypocrisy of « Blair>Serena»
Blair was worse than Serena. Yes I said it , Blair was an awful woman.
1) Classism
Blair always came at Dan an Jenny for be being less fortunate. Was disgusted at the idea of taking the metro and even referred herself as « generations of breeding and wealth » and as having more in common with Marie Antoinette than Vanessa. She was obsessed with that idea of being Queen B to the point that she was still meddling with Constance Billard’s shenanigans while she was in college.
While Serena has many faults Serena never looked down on people. She dated Dan despite him being « poor» and honestly with the mother that she had you’d expect Serena to be way more classist than she was.
2) Puerility
Blair was mad at Serena because Serena was too busy for their friendship. While a normal person would just tell what the fuck is going on, Blair was immature about it. She could’ve told Serena what was up but boo had to scheme and idk what.
3) Their treatment of other people:
While both of them have been shitty to others . Blair was shitty TO EVERYONE,
She used Chuck for the whole NYU speech fiasco. For those who don’t remember, she used Chuck as bait . The NYU’s Dean had om his bucket list kissing Chuck Bass. Instead of asking Chuck if he’d be comfortable in participating in a scheme involving kissing a grown man: Blair Lied And Pretended that the scheme consisted of setting up the Dean to later blackmail him.
This is even richer considering the fact, that Blair didn’t deserved that speech. Vanessa (despite everything ) was way more deserving of the speech than she was. Blair was focused on making friends and being a queen Bee while Vanessa was more interested in journalism and social causes. *Yes Vanessa manipulated the speech thing (who was originally supposed to go to Olivia) BUT her reasons were more comprehensible and she acknowledged that it wasn’t the good way to go about it.
She sabotaged Nelly Yuki to ensure her chances at Yale (which was disloyal), harassed Miss Carr (who was beyond horrible by the way), treated her mom horribly for the way she was dealing with her dad (while Eleanor wasn’t a great parent her reaction to Harold was understandable he cheated on her and lied to her), and treated Cyrus horribly because of his appearance.
Also she literally said that she always thought that Dorota was Gossip Girl. Gossip Girl who ruined her life, Dorota was always the there for Blair so for her to even think that shows that she was awful.
Also she was Horrible to Serena, she slut shamed her multiple time. Always Blamed her for her insecuritie.
When Blair had issues with College she literally insulted Serena insinuating that she was just a dumb party girl. All that for a college, who CHOOSE Serena for publicity. It wasn’t Serena’s fault and to be honest while Serena got into college because of legacy and privilege, Blair literally sabotaged the one who was better than her.
Also , Blair got off of humiliating women. Literally, to alive things up with Chuck she’d pretend to be a scorned woman who caught him cheating on her and thus would humiliate the woman who Chuck would pretend to seduce and cheat with.
Let’s not forget when she said that Serena was a recovering drug addict.
ALSO, she married Louis knowing damn well she loved Chuck. Man , poor man had every reason to detest Blair.
Serena also had done awful shit to Blair but I don’t remember people coming for Blair’s awfulness the way they come for Serena’s. Serena always done some egged il shit but I don’t remember her constantly treating people like crap, I highly doubt that Serena would accuse the woman who raised of being the one who ruined her life.
Serena always thought that every men in her life would be the one but at least she didn’t used the way Blair did Louis.
4) Everyone in this show was awful
Chuck attempted to assault two women (Jenny and Serena ) , sold Blair for an hotel, shamed her for having their encounter in the limo, and was also toxic at times. He was complicit to schemes that were messy and horrible.
Dan was literally Gossip Girl. So much , “Im poor and better than y'all” only to manipulate his way into their lives, he used Chuck for his story writting, used the whole Blair, Serena, Chuck, Nate group to write his book, ruined their lives, and had Serena going through so much distress during highschool that I’m surprised that he’s not the one getting hate.
Jenny was literally, Blair 2.0, only she was a coward. Nonetheless, people gated Jenny when she was literally Blair with more insecurities and doubt.
Georgia literally set up Serena for rape. Serena had no intention of doing a sex tape with the man in the hotel room yet Georgina tried to film that.
Nate literally cheated on two of his gf, but honestly he’s the only who haven’t done anything out of hands.
Ps: Dair Fans , Chuck was as toxic as Dan so don’t try to defend Dair. Gossip Girl came for Blair’s life too.
Finally, people forgot that Serena had no guidance, her mom married men for money and was barely here for her daughter. She didn’t educate her and she didn’t have a Dorota and her father was absent from her life. For somebody with a mother like that , she turned out better than she could have.
Honestly, I don’t get why people says “aT lEasT bLaIr oWn uP tO eAt” when truly Blair only justify herself. Blair doesn’t acknowledge she’s awful she only justify it.

2020.05.30 06:23 tonnie_taller RuPaul’s Drag Race Finale: Jaida Essence Hall Crowned the Winner

Read more on WordPress https://ift.tt/3dleQvu
The final episode of _RuPaul’s Drag Race_season 12 is a lip sync battle extravaganza from home. It has been a wild ride of a season full of talented queens, unbelievable looks, and a disqualification scandal. It is obviously not ideal to see one of the best seasons in history wrap up on a Zoom call, but the queens are making the most of it.
RuPaul announces that the girls will do a three-way lip sync and then each queen will get their own time to shine in a solo lip sync. Then the top two will go against each other. Michelle Visage announces all of the dolls from this season. Usually, they get to strut on the runway, but today we see them in their apartments. It’s sad. Drag needs a certain type of lighting. This was… dim. Jan was possibly the only exception. Her try-hard nature worked in her favor for this presentation. Sometimes it pays to be part queen, part theatre nerd, part stage manager, and part that b**ch!
Related: RuPaul’s Drag Race Reunion: The Queens Throw Shade at Sherry Pie
RuPaul interviews each queen individually and has them talk to photos of their younger selves. This segment is traditionally done in the second to last episode, but it was very smart producing to move it to the finale. Crystal’s family is adorable. It is nice to see a side of her culture that wasn’t featured much on the rest of the season. Gigi Goode also shows her vulnerable side with RuPaul and discusses her level of confidence. Some call it cocky, but no one can say she doesn’t back it up. Her message to her younger self about her father not understanding her is very heartwarming. Jaida Essence Hall gets emotional talking about her clearly kind and loving family. Hearing that her straight brother and father cried when she won a challenge is the kind of message the queer community needs right now. Having such a kind and mature queen who represents black excellence win Drag Race would mean a great deal. She is polished, poised, and wonderful to watch.
The top three girls lip sync to RuPaul’s new song “Bring Back My Girls.” Unfortunately, the girls don’t need to be brought back. Based on this performance the girls need to… stay at home. This was a cute try in this uncertain time for television, but it did not work. All three girls were very close to the camera and not much was happening. This very much felt like an opportunity to fill air time. Then they go to the individual lip syncs. Now comes the gag. Crystal Methyd constructs a bird look and nest. She lip syncs to Nelly Furtado’s “I’m Like a Bird” and it is completely insane. Her creativity is unflappable. There is often a lot of talk around “weird queens” and this doll just proved she is actually the true meaning of the word weird. She feeds her baby bird self as her momma bird self by throwing up. If quarantine has brought us anything special it is this very odd moment.
Gigi Goode has a very cool and very conceptual idea. She pays tribute to a classic pop-rock song. She clearly worked hard on making this come to life. But… is this drag? Its sort of just the same thing as the original music video. It isn’t a parody. It isn’t stylized or campy. She is kind of just… standing there. This was very cool performance art, but ultimately not that interesting to watch. It does make this episode very special, however, that the girls got to pick the song they lip sync to. It’s a cool way to see three different styles of drag rather than making two queens lip-sync to the same song.
Jaida Essence Hall has truly shown that she is the right choice to be America’s Next Drag Superstar. She leads with kindness, compassion, and joy. She is confident without being cocky. She is responsible and mature. Her social media presence is very positive and she truly embodies pageant drag, which is not often rewarded on _RuPaul’s Drag Race._ This lip sync, however, is not it. She is dancing incredibly well, but compared to the other girls there just isn’t enough happening. It’s surprising that all three drag queens didn’t bring more gags. Everyone plays it pretty straight forward, which has been proven to not be enough in this final lip sync showdown. Jaida looks flawless and she performs well, but it certainly isn’t a performance that seems to secure a place in the top two.
When RuPaul announces that he has made his decision about who will move on in the competition, it is a nail-biter. Crystal had the most creative lip-sync. Gigi has the best track record. And Jaida danced well and has a winner’s grace, but she did not deliver the best lipsync. RuPaul announces that all three of the queens will get to move on to the final lip sync, which feels fair and exciting.
While the tension builds, Nina West returns to hand her crown to the next Miss Congeniality. The title goes to the lovable Heidi N Closet. Dolly Parton makes an appearance! Yvie Oddly returns to hand her crown off to this year’s winner. RuPaul announces the lip-sync song the top 3 must perform for the crown. It’s “Survivor” by Destiny’s Child. An excellent choice.
The girls take their positions and you can see the drive in their eyes. Well, you can see the drive in Gigi Goode and Jaida Essence Hall’s eyes. Crystal seems… happy to be there! That attitude continues on through the lip-sync. Crystal seems to phone it in and the other two girls fight for it. Gigi Goode really serves a spectacular lip-sync. What once seemed like a boring black and white music video number is now becoming clear. She is a conceptual queen who made her lip sync black and white and during the song she turns to color. She is dressed as Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz and she does a very exciting reveal that shows off her brightly colored dress. Then she rips off her boots to reveal ruby red slippers. She even takes her hair down in one very smooth move. It’s exciting. Jaida Essence Hall unzips a very cool outfit and reveals a sexy dominatrix looking number. She has the essence of this song. This woman is a survivor. She flips her look up over her head for the final button revealing a crown. It’s extremely cool and Mother RuPaul rewards her with the ultimate prize.
The seasons that are a true race to the finish are always the best. This season seemed like a Gigi Goode win and then Miss Essence Hall came from behind and grabbed that crown. It was an exciting episode and the crown went to a very deserving winner. This win is a wonderful statement to black queer children everywhere. Your lives do matter and as Jaida Essence Hall said in the reunion “you can be anything you want to be.”

2020.05.28 23:23 tonnie_taller Tom Holland Attempted To Cut His Brother’s Hair And It Was Hilariously Chaotic

Read more on WordPress https://ift.tt/36C2DA4
Tom Holland; actor, dancer, hairdresser.
While the entire world is under quarantine amid the coronavirus – and finding creative ways to cut hair while barbershops and salons remain closed – the “Spiderman: Homecoming” actor, 23, is finding new ways to keep entertained while giving his brother’s tresses a trim.

Holland went live on Instagram on Thursday, sharing a look at the chaos that ensued while cutting bro Harry’s locks.
The Hollands enlisted the help of celebrity hairstylist Christine Nelli for the job, but the pair still went completely rogue.
Thankfully, a Tom Holland fan page caught some of the best moments and shared them to their page:

But in the end, Harry was happy with the job, “I think it looks fine, I’m quite happy with it,” he said.
Tom later added, “I’m actually so proud of myself.”

2020.05.28 00:33 Nixflixx Ce 22 mai, des manifestants anti-héritage colonial ont fait tomber deux sculptures de Victor Schœlcher, connu pour son action en faveur de l'abolition de l'esclavage en France.

Cette action a fait grandement polémique, et j'aimerais consacrer un article afin de faire le tour de la question et vous permettre de vous faire votre propre avis sur cet événement, avec tous les éléments en main.
L'histoire de l'abolition de l'esclavage est celle d'un long combat, qui fut mené par de nombreux acteurs : la traite fut aboli une première fois en 1794, puis rétablie de nouveau par Napoléon en 1802, et aboli de nouveau en 1848...
Elle est aboli officiellement en France (pour la deuxième fois) à travers un décret (le fameux défendu par Schœlcher) le 27 avril 1848; les esclaves doivent être affranchis dans les deux mois qui suivent... Mais en Martinique, rien ne change. Les 21 et 22 mai 1848, face à une nouvelle violente répression des gendarmes, les esclaves se rebellent et l’île de la Martinique est le théâtre de nombreuses émeutes, plusieurs maisons prennent feu. Le lendemain, l'autorité municipale de Saint-Pierre publie un arrêté abolissant enfin l'esclavage en Martinique. C'est cette soirée de rébellion et cette victoire qui a été célébré il y a quelques jours en Martinique.
Ce très bon article de Mediapart revient sur l'histoire de la Martinique face à l'esclavage.
Ce 22 mai 2020, un groupe de jeunes militants Martiniquais anti-héritage colonial ont fait tomber deux sculptures de Victor Schœlcher, qui est en France considéré comme "l’homme qui a décrété l’abolition de l’esclavage" (au vu des faits historiques, je pense que ce terme est un peu discutable, mais ce n'est que mon opinion).
Voici plusieurs sources revenant sur cette action : Deux statues de Victor Schœlcher brisées par des manifestants en Martinique, Le Monde avec AFP, 23 mai 2020
Destruction des statues de V. Schoelcher : « Non, Victor Schoelcher n’est pas notre sauveur » insistent des militants martiniquais, Blog indépendant, 23 mai 2020
Le groupe de jeunes militants s'est exprimé à travers ce communiqué de presse sur Instagram (très peu relayé par la presse...) : "22 mai la réparation par la réappropriation"
Face à ces actions, de nombreux politiciens ont réagis sur Twitter.
Le président Emmanuel Macron tweet « En abolissant l'esclavage il y a 172 ans, Victor Schœlcher a fait la grandeur de la France. Je condamne avec fermeté les actes qui, perpétrés hier en Martinique, salissent sa mémoire et celle de la République. »
Annick Girardin, Ministre des Outre-Mer : « Au-delà du vandalisme, c'est la mémoire de Victor Schœlcher que l'on a voulu salir. La mémoire d'un homme qui a fait de la liberté le moteur de son engagement, dont les cendres ont été transférées au Panthéon en 1949 pour saluer son action en faveur de l'abolition de l'esclavage. »
Anne Hidalgo, Maire de Paris : « Honte aux auteurs de cet acte ignoble, ne rien lâcher jamais face à la haine et au racisme. »
Mais comme le soulève beaucoup de personnes en commentaire, n'y aurait il pas un problème de priorités ? Est-ce normal que des responsables politiques dénoncent avec autant de fermeté cette action, et ne se prononcent pas sur les nombreux enjeux socio-économique qui affectent les Antilles ?
Scandale sanitaire du chlordécone (pesticide utilisé aux Antilles responsable de cancer de la prostate)
En Martinique, plusieurs quartiers subissent régulièrement des coupures d'eau depuis plusieurs semaines
Problème d'hôpital en Guadeloupe (un seul CHU, aux conditions sanitaires discutables)
Crise sanitaire à Mayotte qui manque de moyens face à la pandémie.
Concernant Victor Schœlcher, voici quelques biographies :
Biographie du Sénat : Victor Schoelcher (1804-1893). Une vie, un siècle. L'esclavage d'hier à aujourd'hui.
Biographie plus chronologique d'un blog indépendant : 27 avril 1848, il y a 169 ans : 2ème abolition de l'esclavage avec Schoelcher, ses hauts et ses bas.
Biographie plus politisé et d'analyse, rajoutant plus de contexte historique : Les Noirs doivent-ils remercier Victor Schoelcher pour l'abolition de l'esclavage ?
Biographie d'analyse à travers les citations de Victor S. : Les racistes célèbres que les noirs adulent encore.
Plusieurs citations de cet homme, par ordre chronologique :
« Que faire de nègres affranchis ? Pour quiconque les a vus de près, cette question est impossible à résoudre. Les nègres, sortis des mains de leurs maîtres avec l'ignorance et tous les vices de l'esclavage, ne seraient bons à rien, ni pour la société ni pour eux-mêmes, parce que telle est la paresse et l'imprévoyance qu'ils ont contractées dans leur bagne, où ils n'ont jamais à penser à l'avenir, qu'ils mourraient peut-être de faim plutôt que de louer la force de leur corps ou leur industrie. Je ne vois pas plus que personne la nécessité d'infecter la société active (déjà assez mauvaise) de plusieurs millions de brutes décorés du titres de citoyens, qui ne seraient en définitive qu'une vaste pépinière de mendiants et de prolétaires. » Revue de Paris, 1830.
« Les noirs ne sont pas stupides parce qu'ils sont noirs, mais parce qu'ils sont esclaves. L'infériorité intellectuelle des hommes en servitude n'est pas chose nouvelle ; les comédies antiques sont pleines de traits contre l'imbécilité des esclaves (...) On parle de l'avilissement, de la stupidité des Noirs aux colonies ; mais n'est-ce pas le produit de l'esclavage [...] ? Les blancs même d'Europe n'en éprouvent-ils pas les mêmes effets ? » Abolition de l'esclavage : examen critique du préjugé contre la couleur des africains et des sang-mêlés, 1840
« Il en est [des esclaves] qui ne paraissent guère moins bornés que les conscrits auxquels on est obligé de mettre du foin dans un soulier et de la paille dans l'autre pour leur faire distinguer le pied gauche du pied droit, ou bien encore que les paysans alsaciens, pour la tranquillité desquels on a été obligé de faire bénir solennellement le chemin de fer de Strasbourg, parce qu'ils croyaient les locomotives animées du feu de l'enfer. Nous accordons enfin que la masse des nègres, tels qu'ils sont aujourd'hui, montrent une intelligence au-dessous de celle de la masse des blancs » Des colonies françaises. Abolition immédiate, page 156, Pagnerre, 1842
« Le fouet est une partie intégrante du régime colonial, le fouet en est l’agent principal ; le fouet en est l’âme ; le fouet est la cloche des habitations, il annonce le moment du réveil et celui de la retraite ; il marque l’heure de la tâche ; le fouet encore marque l’heure du repos ; et c’est au son du fouet qui punit le coupable, qu’on rassemble soir et matin le peuple d’une habitation pour la prière ; le jour de la mort est le seul où le nègre goutte l’oubli de la vie sans le fouet. Le fouet en un mot est l’expression du travail aux Antilles. » Journal des économistes, 1842
« Qu'il suffise de rappeler par exemple qu'en 1853 Schœlcher assimila la prise de possession de la Nouvelle-Calédonie à un "vol à main armée" qui conduirait "au bagne dans tout pays civilisé" mais qu'il considérait que l'Europe, en "tournant ses regards vers l'Afrique", en "s'occupant d'y porter la civilisation" y ouvrait un marché où "les produits de l'industrie européenne trouveraient 200 millions de consommateurs" » Nelly Schmidt « Victor Schœlcher », éd. Fayard, page 264), (cité par Gérard Théobald dans La Liberté est ou n'est pas, p.94)

Quelques derniers éléments historiques importants :
Il ne faut pas oublier que le 4 mai 1848, est créée la commission pour l'abolition de l'esclavage, présidée par Victor Shoelcher. Cette dernière instaure les nouvelles conditions concernant la citoyenneté et le travail des anciens esclaves, et surtout, règle les conditions d'indemnisation des anciens maîtres. L'influence de Victor S. est prédominante dans les décisions prises par la commission. Il semble important de préciser que Victor S. réfléchissait déjà à une compensation en 1843 : « Les Haïtiens disent avec colère, et nous sommes entièrement de leur avis, qu’ils ne devaient rien aux propriétaires de Saint-Domingue. Imposer une indemnité à des esclaves vainqueurs de leurs maîtres, en effet, c’est leur faire acquitter à prix d’argent ce qu’ils ont déjà payé de leur sang. N’est-ce point, au reste, avec les plus fermes balances de la justice que les esclaves affranchis auraient pu établir une compensation entre ce qu’ils prenaient aux maîtres et ce que les maîtres avaient ravi aux esclaves ? Les richesses de Saint-Domingue, qui les avait créées ? N’était-ce point la main des esclaves ? »
L'esclavage eut beau être aboli officiellement en France, il continue d'être pratiqué en Afrique pendant de longues années : « les puissances européennes continueront à tolérer cette institution dans leurs colonies d'Afrique, et à abuser du travail forcé. Albert Londres le notait en 1897 : "L'esclavage en Afrique n'est aboli que dans les déclarations ministérielles de l'Europe." »
Enfin, et pour reprendre les propos de l'historienne Nelly Schmidt, « les premiers abolitionnistes, ce sont les esclaves eux-mêmes », qui n'ont pas attendu l'engagement tout à fait relatif et aux intérêts incertains de Victor Shoelcher pour se battre pour leurs libertés. « Dès le début du XVIe siècle, les révoltes étaient fréquentes, très sévèrement réprimées. On vit même s'édifier, dans les Caraïbes et en Amérique du Sud, des forteresses défendues par des esclaves rebelles, que les Européens eurent parfois le plus grand mal à maîtriser. » Traites négrières, esclavage : les faits historiques, Jérôme Gautheret pour Le Monde, 2006
Enfin, voici quelques hommes et femmes Martiniquais,es qui mériteraient probablement plus une statue que Victor S :
Pour reprendre ceux cités dans le communiqué de presse des militants : Romain Tanbouyé, esclave qui a déclenché l'insurrection permettant la libération des esclaves martiniquais.
Frantz Fanon, médecin psychiatriste, écrivan et combattant de l'anti-colonialisme.
Eugène Mona, grand artiste martiniquais engagé sur le chemin de la musique traditionnelle.
Siméline Rangon chanteuse renommée de bèlè, (pratique musico-chorégraphique de Martinique qui mêle chant, musique, danse et conte), et virtuose de la langue créole.
