2020.09.23 03:09 randallfcooper The Piano Pact (Drac's Ascension Part 8)

Part 1Previous

After Drac played Contra and a collection of other NES games for a while, he checked his phone.
"Damn, I'm sorry, Rex, time is slipping away from me here. I gotta get going."
"Ah, come on, we're just getting started," Rex groaned.
"We've been playing for an hour."
"Exactly, gotta go at least two."
Drac sighed as he looked over at Rex. His goofy smile and glowing eyes behind his thick-lensed glasses made Drac crack up.
"I'm sorry I can't stay here much longer. I really oughta meet with Nika."
"You about to pop in on her too?"
Drac smirked. "Nah, I'm gonna give her a call."
"But you didn't call me?"
"You had nothing going on."
"You didn't know that."
Drac rolled his eyes. "I'm gonna give her a call outside," he got up from his seat and went into the alley behind the strip mall. The only light came from the back of buildings with industrial bulbs. There was no one around except someone taking out the trash. Lighting up a cigarette, he dialed Nika. The phone kept ringing to a point where Drac thought he was about to reach voicemail, but she picked up.
"Whatcha need?" Nika said.
"Dinner. Wanna get some?"
"Something wrong?"
Drac chuckled. "No, not at all. Just wanna see you and talk about some things."
"A phone call doesn't suffice?"
"What the matter with you, got a date?"
"I'm just breaking your balls, relax, will ya? Meet you at Ocean Prime. Can you be there in an hour?"
"Uh yeah, I'm leaving from Rex's, so I should be there soon."
"You were just at Rex's? Shit, something happened, huh?" Nika said, Drac could hear her lips curving upward.
"No. Maybe. We'll talk."
"Alright, I need to finish up this drink, see you soon," Nika hung up before Drac was able to ask where she was at.
He finished smoking his cigarette and said goodbye to Rex. Getting back in his car, he headed towards downtown Indianapolis.
***
The restaurant was dimly lit with large glass cubes emitting dark yellow light. Polished rosewood comprised the interior with black cushioned chairs and booths. There was a crowd of people waiting to get a table as Drac came in to talk to the host.
"Drac, it's good to see you. Glad to see you're dining with us tonight. How many?"
"It's just Nika and me, thank you," Drac smiled.
"Right this way, sir," the host turned around, and as they departed, people around them glared and whispered to each other. The host escorted Drac to a tucked-away corner of the restaurant arriving at a rounded booth with its own shutters for extra privacy.
"Your server will be with you shortly," the host said, and he returned back to his post.
Without waiting long, a server came up to Drac's table.
"Mr. Drac, a pleasure to serve you, how are you this fine evening?"
"Stupendous. I'll take two zombies. Thanks."
"You got it," the server slipped away.
Drac felt a firm pat on his shoulder. "Get up, ya clown. Lemme hug ya."
He grinned and stood up to hug Nika, an athletic demon with high-cheek bones and a rounded chin, wearing a dark purple dress. They both sat at the booth that could seat at least five more.
"How was Chicago? Shitty, crowded, and pretentious?" Nika smirked.
"I actually want to live there."
Nika grinned. "Funny. Where's the server? I need a drink."
"I'm serious, Nika, I think I want to move our operation to Chicago, and I'd want you and Rex to come with me."
"I've been here like five minutes already, and the server is nonexistent. I need something strong."
"Relax, I ordered you a zombie," Drac eye-rolled.
"And what do you expect me to thank you? That's the least you could do when you're in the middle of telling me this shit. You couldn't wait to tell me until the server dropped off the drink?"
"You're someone who likes to cut to the chase. I'm sorry, I didn't think it would hit you this hard."
"It's not hitting me hard," Nika scoffed. "It's just a lot to take in," she furrowed her brow and tapped the table with her long red nails. "See? I knew this would be a disaster of a dinner. There was something in the tone of your voice over the phone, you bastard."
"It's not a disaster. We're just talking here, wanted to get your input on things. You and Rex mean a lot to me, and I don't know if I'd go if I knew you two weren't coming."
The server came by and dropped off two zombie cocktails.
"We're going to take a while to order, thank you," Nika dismissed, and he bowed his head as he spun away. "Thank the Dark Lord this cocktail's here," Nika gulped a mouthful.
Drac explained what happened in the meeting with Marcia and how all of her knights had been killed.
"Yeah fuck that, I have no interest in going. Not to mention, Tyrannus?" Nika shuddered. "He's always given me the creeps. Wouldn't want to work with him closely."
"You wouldn't. We'd be working under Marcia, she'll keep him in check. Don't have to worry about a thing."
Nika frowned. "I still don't understand how you're actually considering this. Demon outfits in the US are impressed we've gotten by with only three knights. We're not bringing in the blood like we used to, but we're rolling in the money. You really want to leave that?"
"Chicago is even more money, even if you do a bad job. I've also heard about their blood numbers, and they're getting a lot of business. It's more dangerous, but it's more notoriety. We could have seats at the big kid's table. Demons look at us and think we're minor league-ers. We've got a chance at making history."
"I don't know, the business with El Lujo, my nightclub, and some of my other rental properties, I'm doing tremendous. Business has been booming for me. People are eating up all these expensive rates," Nika chuckled. "The guy supply I feel like might be a little dried up around here. It's been a while since I've had a worthwhile date," Nika took a swig of her zombie and wiped the corner of her lip.
"There's plenty of guys in Chicago."
"No duh."
"There's another thing I wanted to bring up," Drac took a sip of his zombie. "I'm going to need the presidential suite this Saturday for someone coming into town."
Nika's brow arched as high as it could go. "Who on earth are you having over?"
"You don't need to know."
"I kind of do because it's booked. You can't just lay this information on me last second."
"Who do you have staying there?"
"You don't need to know," Nika mocked Drac with a deep voice.
He smirked with amusement. "They're coming from Chicago."
"Marcia?" Nika guessed like a game show answer, grinning from ear-to-ear.
"No."
"Ooo is it, Abbadonna?"
"Alright, that's enough of that. You've had your fun," Drac shook his head, and Nika giggled.
"It's just someone important to me, and I want them to stay and have a nice time. Sorry, I didn't have more notice, this was a little bit of a last-minute thing. Perhaps I can offer my place for you?"
"Your downtown skyrise?" Nika's jaw dropped. "You're really about to offer your place for my guest to stay?"
"Like I said, this person is important to me."
Nika thought about it for a moment. "I mean, I have a loft downtown here, I guess they can just come stay with me if I sleep on the couch," she sighed. "You owe me one though."
"Don't bother turning in blood next week, how about that?"
"Damn. This person really does mean a lot to you. Hey, if you insist. I'll happily take that deal," Nika shook Drac's hand across the table, and they continued to drink their cocktails.
"Just promise me you'll think about Chicago. I think I'm going to help out Marcia and see what happens from there."
With a deep, heavy exhale, Nika nodded. "Alright, you have my word. I'll think about it, prick," she smirked.
***
Tyrannus sat in his tinted, parked Cadillac, smoking cigarette after cigarette. No radio, music, or sound in the vehicle. His attention was fixed half a block away at a building.
"I have to thank you for your bravery and loyalty. Many other demons would cower at the idea to do what you're doing."
Tyrannus turned to the passenger seat and grinned at Fenny, puffing on a stale cigar.
"It's all to avenge your honor," Tyrannus grinned as he pulled out a pouch of blood and took a sip.
"But I have to say I'm also a little disappointed in you," Fenny shrugged.
Tyrannus gaped and couldn't bear to meet his gaze.
"Don't you want to know why? Or is it already obvious?"
"Shut up!" Tyrannus screamed.
"You do realize you're doing something worse, right? Drac only killed me. You're out here murdering four other knights."
"I didn't lay a finger on them!" Tyrannus roared, shaking the steering wheel, so close to popping it off. "They died because they aren't strong enough to take on a couple of demon hunters! That's not my fault!"
"You seem pretty defensive," Fenny snickered, sinking further down the seat, resting his legs on the expansive dashboard. "Because you tipped them off... but killing Drac is just one way to start making up for what you've done. If you hadn't let your other companions die, I'd say these two wrongs make a right, but you're so deeply in debt to the ghosts of your fellow knights you're ruined. And it's tragic to see too, you were my favorite Chicago knight. I should've moved out your way and started from the bottom. Hell, I'd probably still be alive, because even though you'd sell me out, I'd kill those demon hunters," Fenny put his hands behind his head. "And then I'd probably kill you after I found out."
"Enough!" Tyrannus barked as he smashed his fist on the passenger seat, but nothing was there. He tapped the cushion and rubbed the bottom, exhaling a deep, relieved breath.
"Keep your eyes forward, you dumbbastard," Fenny said from the backseat.
Tyrannus stared forward at the building he had kept his eyes on all night, and saw Drac walking outside with Nika next to him. They were wearing winter coats as they chatted outside for a moment, moderate foot traffic passing by.
"That's the next roadblock in your path to becoming the king of Chicago."
"Should I dust Nika?" Tyrannus' lower lip quivered as he pressed his car on.
"Nah, I wouldn't do that... Yet. Let's take our time. Gotta stalk the prey. You can't just go in on a murderous spree. Don't worry, Tyranny, you'll get there. Just gotta be patient."
"I'm tired of waiting!" Tyrannus punched the wheel with his right first, nearly denting it.
"Relax, take a deep breath, hell, meditate for all I care but trust me, you don't want to be flooded when you're driving. When you feel ready, follow Drac."

Probable Pitcher (Season Stats) Report
Cardinals Austin Gomber (0-1, 1.88 ERA, 24.0 IP) Gomber takes Dakota Hudson's spot in the rotation and will look to turn around from his last outing, when he allowed four runs against the Pirates in 1 2/3 innings. Gomber walked two and struck out two, and he'll likely be built up to around 80 pitches for this start.
Royals Brady Singer (3-4, 4.40 ERA, 57.1 IP) Singer is coming off two outstanding outings. Two starts ago, he threw eight shutout innings of one-hit ball at Cleveland. Last time out at Detroit, he threw six shutout innings of two-hit ball.

Probable Pitcher (Season Stats) Report
Cubs Jose Quintana (0-0, 5.63 ERA, 8.0 IP) Quintana (left lat) will come off the 10-day IL for his first start of '20. He has made a pair of three-inning relief appearances this year. Quintana (4.19 ERA vs. Pirates in '19) will likely be limited to around 50 pitches.
Pirates Steven Brault (1-3, 3.38 ERA, 42.2 IP) Brault is coming off the best start of his career and the Pirates' best outing of the season: a complete-game two-hitter against the Cardinals at PNC Park. That outing lowered Brault's ERA as a starter to 3.03 in nine outings this season.

2020.09.22 03:25 incandescentwalrus uBPD Mom also sexually abuses son

Disclaimer: This post will contain a frank but brief description of sexual abuse from a mother to a son. Female-to-male sexual abuse isn't talked about as much as it needs to be but I promise you that it really does exist. The thing that made me realize the extent of the abuse was flipping our genders around - basically, if she was a man and I was a daughter and the same things happened, I guarantee if anyone found out about it she'd be chased out of town with pitchforks and torches.
I understand that a large percantage of posters here are women, and reading through a smattering of posts here has helped me understand more about what it's like to be on the receiving end of BPD mothering from a woman's perspective, which is very useful and enlightening. It is my hope that sharing a few details of my story will help illuminate another gendesex dynamic between a mother and her son.
After reading "Understanding the borderline mother", "Stop walking on eggshells" and "Surviving a borderline parent," I finally felt like I could see the Matrix, like I finally had a road map to why Mom was so difficult to live with and why being around her makes me want to vomit.
I'm a straight, single white male with no children. I left home when I was 18, enlisted in the military and ever since then I've paid my own way and done my own thing. I have a good job, good health and I've been told by many people, both men and women, that I'm attractive.
I turn 40 years old next year and I've never been in a serious relationship or had a steady girlfriend. I've dated and fooled around, but I've always had serious, crippling issues with women for reasons that will soon become very obvious. I have many close woman friends and I get along very well with my lady co-workers, and I'm highly attracted to women but the thought of being close to one makes me feel like a portal to hell is opening up beneath my feet. It's lonely being by myself, but it feels safe and secure, and there's comfort in that - I know I'll never have to walk home into a blazing house fire, so to speak.
My mother has two Master's Degrees in mental health and she's the most insecure, neurotic, petty, spiteful, easily offended and hard to please woman I've ever known in my life. She's been married and divorced twice (my father was her second husband) and she's been "engaged" for nearly 30 years to a man who lives on the complete opposite side of town. They'll never get married but they talk occasionally on the phone and he shows up for holidays and such. My father is a meek, emotionally crippled alcoholic who was seldom around when I was younger and when I was 11 and my parents divorced, I saw even less of him than before. Mom tends to gravitate towards men who are unassertive and won't stand up to her.
Mom has always treated me like I'm the younger boyfriend she always wanted and groomed me as such for as long as I can remember. Just writing that out makes me want to drink bleach and puke it back up. When I was 7 or 8 years old, running errands with her, she'd say things like "I wish we could date each other. You just 'get me' like no one else does!" You know how couples have their special song ("Oooh, they're playing our song on the radio!")? She picked out a song for me and her. She's never, ever had any concept of what constitutes appropriate boundaries and she never will.
I wish I enjoyed sex. I really do. But it disgusts me and I hate it when women that I'm involved with want to have it and I don't - I've lost relationships because of this. You know that whole "No means no!" thing? Well, it applies for men too, and when my lady friend gets disappointed and tries pushing me to participate, it just makes me angry and want to get up and leave - this is, again, thanks to Mom's behavior.
I've never experienced sex on the transcendent, beautiful level that I know other people have - and I have extreme difficulty maintaining and sustaining an erection in the presence of a woman. This is because from the time I was 11, my Mom's been wanting to f*** me. She's never said those words exactly, but over the years she's done everything except say those words - leering at me suggestively like a piece of meat, flirting with me nonstop, long, lingering hugs that are far too sensual, affectionate kisses that made me want to throw up, and that's just for starters. When I got older and started looking like a grown man, she'd compliment my body and ask about the size of my genitals and how they compared to my father's. She's tried to start conversations about oral sex, and before I went to boot camp, she booked a short vacation for the two of us to Chicago, part of which involved a dinner cruise where I dressed up in a suit and was her "date". I was only 17 when this was happening and not fully aware of how inappropriate it was but looking back now it makes me want to throw up and punch a hole in the wall.
I know my difficulties with arousal are a self-protective mechanism in resistance to the steady stream of sexualized energy my Mom constantly threw my way - I always knew it was wrong and so, to protect myself, my ability to get hard or relax around a woman making advances towards me just completely shut down. I hated the way she treated me, but I didn't say anything because, as you know if you have a BPD mom, if you make them feel rejected or pushed aside in any way, you'll pay for it in a dozen different ways.
I've been almost complete NC with her for the past four years and I don't miss her BS one bit. Every time I go over for a quick holiday meal or whatever, I'm instantly reminded of why I got away as soon as I could. I could write more but this is already turning into an essay so I'll stop here. Thanks for listening.

2020.09.22 02:09 alitxtile 140 Years of Jeans (Part I): TCB’s Natural Indigo Tribute to the 1880 Waist-Overalls

140 Years of Jeans (Part I): TCB’s Natural Indigo Tribute to the 1880 Waist-Overalls
This is Part I of a write up on 140 years of Jeans. This part focuses on the 1880 Waist-Overalls along with a review of TCB Jeans’ 1880 inspired version of the pair. Part II will be on a more modern pair of jeans by Versace and will be posted later this year. As always, a good bit of history in the beginning of this (A) followed by the review of TCB Jeans’ pair (B).
The start of this decade represents a number of milestones in the history of jeans as we know them . Levi Strauss’ patent on adding rivets to clothing was granted in 1873 yet it is likely that Levi’s own factory didn’t produce until at the 1880’s and most of the oldest pairs we have to my knowledge date to around the this time or a few years prior. This means this is the 15th time a decade has started with riveted clothing being worn. Perhaps just as importantly, this year marks the 140th anniversary of the expiration of Levi’s Strauss patent allowing other companies to produce riveted clothing. Ultimately, the de-Levi-ification of jeans is representative of just how universal their appeal became, the race was not merely for what new innovation would replace riveted clothing but, critically, on how to perfect riveted clothing itself. 140 years on, denim and jeans show no signs of slowing down and continue to define nearly every culture on the planet. This is probably as good of a time as any to go back and look at how we got here and, specifically, to take a deep look at the jeans that so have captured our hearts. Since much has already been written on the history of denim I wanted to take a slightly different approach. Rather than rehashing what we already know I’ll use newspapers from the late-1800’s and early-1900’s to portray what these jeans meant to people and to recapture stories now lost. TCB’s 1880’s waist overalls, based on jeans from the period, will be my window into relating to these stories so by the end I will transition to some reflections based on these jeans and discussing their fabric, construction, as well as their modern-day appeal and their relationship to modern jeans. Also, keep in mind that the term “overall” didn’t refer only to the bib-overall that we connect it with now but was a loose definition meaning something that would be a protective layer—so a pair of overalls could simply come up to one’s waist just like a pair of jeans.
Natural indigo with left-right construction, deerskin leather patch, copper rivets, steel suspenders buttons, and an iron cinch.
(A) Historical Context
The patent system in the United States by the mid to late 1800’s all manner of creative ways from which to improve clothing. These “improvements” in clothing included adjusting them for various waist sizes, increasing durability in high-stress areas, as well as on methods on measuring, cutting, and maintaining clothing. Theodore Sloan for instance in 1870 was a granted a patent for the application of a strengthening fabric at the knees of pantaloons so they would not wear down so readily. Patrick W. Dolan received a grant in 1868 for a ruler specifically constructed for more “correct” measurements of mens pantaloons.
A little over six months after Jacob W. Davis and Levi Strauss’ applied for a patent on adding rivets to clothing, John D. Ryan was granted a patent on a device for maintaining the shape of pantaloons writing that,
My invention has for its object to furnish a device for stretching pantaloons to remove the bagging at the knees, and the wrinkles in the other parts caused by wear, so that the pantaloons may be made perfectly smooth without its being necessary to send them out every few days to be cleaned and pressed, and which shall be simple in construction and convenient in use.
Who needs shoe-trees when you can have pantaloon-trees:
Looks like there is an outline of a cinch in the top!
It’s the addition of rivets to clothing, of course, that is at the center of the jeans-story. While John Davis and Levi Strauss were aware that rivets had been used to secure shoes, Davis’ application involved adding rivets to the pocket opening of the jeans/pantaloons that were likely to fail under pressure. The button fly here was included in the category of “pocket-opening” as in construction and pressure it was essentially an area where an opening was present. The presence of metal rivets so visible on a piece of clothing was likely a curiosity.
The presence of the rivets was originally proposed as “applicable to pantaloons, overalls, coats, vests, and other garments.” But it was the overalls that would be most receptive to the new riveting technique with their convolvement being a potent combination of both durability and comfort. Overalls had become by the 1880’s the premiere workwear outfit. Companies such as Sweet & Orr produced these overalls for workers and created representations and images highlighting their ruggedness. The following ad shows two men battling over a pair of Sweet & Orr’s overalls (The Abilene reflector. September 11, 1884):
Two (Three?) men brand?
Sweet & Orr was likely one of the first clothing producers to popularize this image and predated Levi’s horse logo with the latter potentially being a case of trying to one-up Sweet & Orr’s human strength driver tug of war game with old fashioned horse-power. Sweet & Orr also owned their own factory for producing overalls while it is unclear how early Levi Strauss did so. So, regardless of whether they were riveted or not overalls quickly became the definition of a rugged and free lifestyle. So many stories in the end of the 19th century were intimately connected to overalls: from marriage to murder, life to death. I have selected a few forgotten stories to help capture what overalls meant. Let’s start with an old professor who lost his job partly due to his refusal to wear anything but dirty overalls.
Stories
The Evening Bulletin in Maysville, Kentucky dated to April 18th, 1888 (Number 126) recounts the curious tale of one Alex E. Cohen. Mr. Cohen had moved to Andover around 1860 from New York where he had been teaching the children of the leading families in the languages. His knowledge of Hebrew literature was so impressive that he was given an assistant position at the Andover Theological seminary. The article continues,
He was a very scholarly man, but the very impersonation of carelessness in dress. It is said of him that he frequently appeared before the dignified divinity students unwashed and collarless, a boot on one foot and a rubber on the other. His favorite pantaloon material was overalling. For his uncleanliness and slovenly attire he was expelled from the seminary.
Mr. Cohen when he first moved to Andover was, per the article, ridiculed for his manner of dress and all sorts of rumors were created about his marriage. After his wife moved to the town the year after him the townspeople were shocked at what a charming woman she was. Both lived together in hermitage for 12 or 13 years.
In Mr. Cohen’s case we can see that the comfort provided by of a worn-down pair of overalls is considerable. And if one could not afford more pants, overalls became the de-facto companions to see one through thick and thin. The “ruggedness” of overalls soon became connected with the definition of plasticity and adaptability. Because the overall could do anything and help its wearer in the tasks of life, it itself became a symbol of openness.
By the early 1900’s its clear that the ability to wear the overall if only during out-door activities was both seen as desirable by women as well in out-door activities and was not by any means only for men. The Sun Francisco Sunday Call from September 27, 1907, for instance, describes a group at the camp of women telegraphers referred to as the overall-girls: “[t]here are lots of [. . .] women in Camp Felton and many of them wear overalls.” We even see here that one woman was not “allowed” to wear overalls by her husband and, due to it, was frustrated. Let us not forget that women were still given the right to vote. There is of course a deep irony in having to be given the permission to don something as adaptable as the overall but it is exactly this tension that gave the symbol strength. Wearing the overall when not allowed was of course what made it an even stronger symbol.
The overalls becoming a symbol for adaptability was not only an issue for rigid gender roles but also for rich and poor. The San Francisco Call from August 7th, 1904 contains a rebuttal against those who saw the overalls as unacceptable for the highest dignity a human should aspire to. One Mr. Hearst, had laid an attack on overalls when seeing a rich man’s son donning them:
Mr. Hearst is of the opinion that a rich man’s son should have an ambition above wearing overalls and learning handicraft. The overalls seem to be the specially offensive and are referred to with a bitterness of expression which we thought could not be excited by that harmless and necessary article of clothing. Mr. Hearst if of the opinion that a rich man’s son should put in his time doing good, elevating his fellow man, as it were, and declares that this Young man in overalls is not fulfilling that high mission. We can see no occasion for all this fuss. Men who have had traces and worn overalls had done many a good job at elevating their fellows, and history asks no question about what they wore, whether trousers or overalls.
In fact, the author continues that wearing of the overalls and working with in the shop “shows a very commendable spirit in a rich man’s son that he desires to join his fellow-men in a workshop, learn their trade, take pot luck with them and train his hands to skill in a useful and honorable occupation.” In fact, it seems that Mr. Hearst was against the exclusiveness of the rick yet, the author states, makes a lapse in his usual view because a “rich youngster has dropped exclusiveness and wears overalls and chews his lunch out of a tin bucket.”
The humble overall because it was so inconspicuous, better yet conspicuously inconspicuous allowed the discussion to shift away from attire and onto the actual character of the person. That of course has commonly been the elephant in the room of fashion. Gianni Versace when interviewed about his distaste for ties stated that:
I have a kind of repulsion to. . . for the things you are obliged to wear. Sometimes they send me out of an restaurant, [saying] why I don’t wear a tie. And inside that restaurant there was even mafioso. You can kill people if you wear a tie. (60 minutes)
Betraying what we feel obliged to wear, in this case, becomes an act of self and social calibration to determine whether the superficiality of our appearance or our actions are weighed more heavily by our peers. The overall because of its humility became the touchstone, the measuring bar for this. I like to think that Mr. Cohen, the overall-women, and the rich man’s son all saw it as an instrument for testing the limits of their own freedom.
There is a danger of course in idolizing the overall or its situation. There were dirty and horrible truths amongst the positives. Overall manufacturing and labor, connected with questions of the rights of the work-force as well as immigrant-labor, was at times convolved with horribly racist movements like those seen in the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882: The act in different stages used Chinese, Korean, Japanese, and other “Asian” groups as scapegoats for the working man or woman’s trouble and clothing manufacturing was used as a way to scare people into thinking their sewing jobs would be taken by immigrants. Ads from the time-period went as far as to mention that their overalls were produced with white-labor. So if overalls were beginning to be representative of freedom or adaptability their construction and the labor behind it was capable of being co-opted or infected by the most abhorrent human vices. Thankfully, it seems that raw denim in the long run, despite attempts to do otherwise, has maintained its boundary breaking character. The development of the raw denim community as diverse as it is, linking different countries, with cottons from all over the world, and styles which mix inspirations from different cultures is something to grow and protect. The overall and jeans by extension continue to be the article of clothing for everyone gender, race, and class—they transcend that which sought to limit them yet. But the history highlights that this requires constant vigilance.
Going back to this history, even when overall-manufacturing was romanticized, as seen in an article in the Sunday Call article titled "Experiences as a worker in an overall factory" from August 12, 1900, we can see that companies were quite interested in maintaining productivity:
Presently my thread got tangled up and pop went another needle. The girl next to me kindly Stopped work and gave me a few pointers. "You must be careful,", said she, "needles count up. and you know we have to buy them, three for a nickel. Just so slow and you're all right. Look out how you turn on the power,. If you break that big wheel band it's two bits. The little one is 20 cents."
The desire to drive down the cost of overalls manifested as pressure put on the sewing ladies who had to buy the needles they broke. The Weekly Crisis of June 2, 1881 contains a call for overalls to be protected from being merely tools for the fundholders:
Five pair of overalls for a dollar, is a creamy paradise for the fundholders. If the fundholder can swap his dollar that is now worth five pair of overalls for a dollar that is worth ten pair, we will be in his “kingdom come.” If five more pair of overalls could be crowded into a dollar, the fundholder’s dollar would be doubled in value, without his doing a strokes of work; but the sewing woman would have to take twice as many stitches to get the dollar. Hostile law has made one man richer by making another poorer, and they call it strengthening the public credit.
Thus the desire for the overall to be a rugged yet cheap article had, in the author’s eyes, only the allure of the public good while in reality creating worst working conditions for the common woman or man. And how valuable a well-fitting, cheap, and durable pair of pants is was taken to its negative extreme in an article in the Chicago Tribune from February 3rd, 1876 titled “Overalls and Murder”.
Since the original story may be too graphic for some I’ll simply summarize: Because “Mrs. Silar Wilder made a pair of overalls too short,” Silas murdered her as well as his father than himself. The full article despite being graphic contains many satirical elements and notes of commentary. It points out that an overall cut too short is essentially like the breeches worn by George Washington. An overall in one point of time that is too short would be considered too long in another. Through such a telling, the “point” of the article is that overalls ought not be taken too seriously, whether too short or too long they are merely tools of utility. Again, such articles were seemingly attempting to push back against the fashionization of the overall. The overall could only be taken seriously if it wasn’t taken too seriously.
There are of course many more stories around overalls that I have left out; many comedic, some some serious, and others horrifying. Why did it capture everyone’s attention in such a manner? If it is because it was a workwear item then the immediate next question is why was it a workwear item? Why did it become a symbol of adaptability that then had to be protected, and continues to have to be, from negatives such as poor pay, class elitism, gender-roles, and racism? To better understand this I wanted to return to the source by wearing a modern-day jeans inspired by the 1880 waist-overalls. I’ll first introduce you to the construction, fit, and fabric of the TCB’s 1880 overalls and then come back to reflecting on where these waist-overalls fit in the modern world.

(B) TCB Jeans Natural Indigo 1880 Waist-Overalls:
What makes the TCB Jeans so unique is while many companies historically have out-sourced their sewing, including Levi’s in the beginning and even now, TCB Jeans is an entirely in-house sewing operation. Where jeans are sewn, how they are sewn, when they are sewn is usually unknown to the consumer. Yet with TCB Jeans this trend is bucked, we can see that Kikk does all the cutting for their items on the third floor of the main building. All the sewing is done in the second floor. Shiba does the hemming for most of the jeans ordered. Matsu the teen handles adding rivets and attaching cinch-backs to jeans. Yuko-Rin sews every prototype for new TCB products. Ryo handles international customers and helps disseminate the knowledge of TCB to an english speaking audience—I learned a lot from his pamphlet on these jeans that describes how they are constructed, I urge everyone to look at it. Master sewists like Tak handle difficult sewing sections. And Miko handles the behind the scene logistics, and, of course, everyone knows Hajime Inoue as the brand’s owner. The team makes up a sort of denim super hero group coming up with ideas for denim, having fabric custom woven for them, cutting and stitching themselves. And the sewing machines, both old and new, are of course a intrinsic part of the designs and construction chosen by TCB Jeans. This integration, as we will see, makes for a remarkably cohesive pair of jeans and allows TCB to recreate exacting details that elevate denim.

The construction on the 1880’s waist-overalls is simply the best I have ever seen on any pair of jeans. It is sublime. It’s such a tour-de-force that I can’t help but feel that TCB Jeans is simply bragging about what they are capable of. So I want to spend a little time going into the details.The 1880 Waist-Overalls are based on the earliest pairs from 1879 onwards. At this time, these overalls were not flat-felled seam or chain-stitched. Instead they were stitched together with a lapped seam with the edges left completely raw and unfinished.
Selvedge and raw-lapped seams are an experience
Now, to us modern-day denim aficionados we would certainly be familiar with flat-felled seams because they hide the unfinished part of a fabric inside the fold where it is not visible.
It looks nice and clean. One would normally think that this means that the fabric is protected so it will not unravel. Given that the 1880-waist overalls have unfinished seams how could this be prevented? This is where the sewing of TCB shines. Rather than simply stitching two pieces of fabric together with a single thread, the waist overalls contain not one, not two, not three, but four separate threads. And the entire length of all these seams is sew with cotton thread. So as one thread breaks there are three more to replace it. So the seams were not simply stitched once with a double chain-stitch as is common but the machine was taken over the seam multiple times.
You can see two stitches on the right and then a third to their left; but even further left there is yet another thread holding the seam secured tightly (This photo was hard to take, sorry for the quality)
Recall, the whole point of the appeal of the overalls in the past was that their ruggedness and durability bucked the trend of what one ought to dress like. Despite looking “unfinished” because of the exposed seams the waist-overalls contain far more workmanship than more finished pairs of denim. The superbly stitched lapped seams are even more interesting because they are contrasted with the opposite on all ends: selvedge.
The rest of the jeans contain more selvedge edges than any other pair of jeans. The outseam, of course, is selvedge like all selvedge jeans. The watch-pocket too. The button fly, however, is also selvedge, and the entire waist band the all the way around is also selvedge. Simply opening the jeans one is hit by vast swathes of selvedge edges contrasted with quad stitched lapped seams with threads flying out. The loose threads even wrap around each other securing themselves further and can be seen sticking out the hem. It’s one hell of a party trick.
That selvedge button fly? Stitched again with single-needle stitching. You can see that the bottom of the stitching comes closer and closer which, usually, cannot happen because it is double stitched.

The simplicity of the selvedge is gorgeous. So clean. And the contrast between the clean selvedge and the raw edges is an experience.
The raw edges have spun around each other further securing themselves to the left while the clean selvedge peaks out on the right.
More selvedge
Cinches? Cinches and Buttons
The cinch is the most critically important part of these jeans for me. In the late 19th century, belts were not yet fashionable so overalls contained suspenders buttons as well as cinches.
This might seem like just a detail but when we come back to thinking about the utility of these overalls it will be quite important. The cinch is perfectly located below the middle of the waist band. Meaning that if you tighten the cinch it doesn’t tighten directly on your stomach. It tightens below and behind it which keeps the pants up while the waistband is still pliable enough to stretch and grow on the front with you as you eat, drink, and workout throughout the day. The cinch is held together by a custom made iron-piece with prongs sharp enough to hold the belt. Wearing these for over six months the cinch hasn’t slid even once!
Iron cinch
The jeans also contain a host of steel buttons that are already starting to rust quite nicely. The button-fly features five buttons while the suspender buttons are the same as the top-most button and six in number.

Rusting button
Rivets
The rivets, of course, where what made the original Levi’s legendary. Two for the watch-pocket and two for each of the front pockets, two for the single pocket in the back, and as was tradition, one for the crotch, and lastly two for the cinch. They are copper and feel light yet strong.

Leather Patch
The leather patch on the back is mixed tanned being both vegetable and chrome tanned and is made out of deerskin. The deerskin has a soft texture that fits the pliability of the jeans as a whole and the mixed tannage gives it a natural look while still giving water resistance to age without becoming stiff.
Putting it Together
It’s important to note that when these jeans were constructed in the 1880’s they were not sew as they are now with the front and back being sewn separately then stitched together. Instead, overalls were made by sewing the left and right sides first and then stitching them together through the middle. Additionally, fabrics were pressed with a iron when sewing the seams together rather than using a seam-guide. The fact that TCB recreated even these details really shows that no corner was cut.
In my opinion, the fabric, which I’ll get to in a second, is absolutely perfect for the construction. The benefit of lapped seams over flat-felled seams is that it reduces how bulky the seam is—it makes the seams feel like they are non existent. Combined with a lighter fabric it really feels as if the entire jeans are just a single piece of fabric rather than something held together at the seams.
Natural indigo, American cotton, 8oz
There was no synthetic indigo in the late 1800’s so any indigo dying had to be done by using leaves from the indigo plants. The leaves for TCB Jean’s waist-overalls are grown in India. While the original pairs would have been vat-dyed TCB elected to rope-dye the jeans so that they fade. The threads are dipped in the Indian indigo pool 8 times each without any synthetics used.
Who said 8 oz fabric can’t have incredible feel and texture? Just LOOK at it!
The threads are themselves made using American cotton. I believe that are two kinds of American cotton used to give it a fluffier feel. The end result is a very hairy fabric with a heterogenous color, the natural indigo being darker in some areas than others.
Let’s talk about the weight. This is by far the lightest pair of jeans I have and I was worried initially that the starchy, stiff, rough and heavier feel of 13-18 oz denim would be missed. Having worn these over six months, I have not even once wished that they were heavier. The fabric is so fluffy and hairy and supple that those same 8 oz take up more space in your hand. Additionally, this isn’t a high density high tension lightweight fabric that feels like a shirt, the lower tension of shuttle looms seems to have led to something that feels airy and pliable yet substantial at the same-time.
The color of the fabric is also, to my eyes, beautiful. The natural indigo has a little iridescence to it (not unlike the roadrunner cotton) and a slightly bluer look than the deep purples of synthetic indigo. Both look beautiful but I think the softness of the natural indigo really fits the softer, fluffier, hairier look of the denim. It’s got an oceanic tone to it that is really pleasing.

The construction and fabric, from the cinch to the natural indigo, the American cotton to the rivets, the selvedge to the steel buttons, leads to a pair of jeans that has completely changed the game for me when it comes to utility. If I had to spend the rest of your life in a pair of pants and was never allowed to change this is the undisputed ace. If I have to be stranded on an island this no question hands down the pair I would take. Their loose fit means means that you can run around and jump without feeling restricted, the lack of traditional seams means you can lounge on a couch and be no less comfortable than with pajamas. They are long enough and dense enough to protect from fast wind yet light enough not to hold your body-heat in. Their loose fit again means that they leave enough room for a thermal or long-johns underneath while letting in the air in hot weather. Gained a little waist or ate a big lunch? Loosen the cinch. They are the definition of utility.

Reflecting on the 1880’s
I originally looked to TCB’s 1880 jeans as well as newspaper and patents to try and better understand why waist-overalls and their jean descendants have so taken the world by storm cutting across gender, ethnicity, culture, and class.
It’s clear that the late 1800’s were filled with attempts to make the perfect pair of pantaloons. From measuring rulers to jean-stretching devices to ways of sewing button-flys to creating strengthened seams everyone tried to make pants better. Standards for how a pair of pants should be sewn were still evolving and everyone experimented with new techniques. The end result was an age of innovation in construction and stylistic techniques. Yet, there were still no seam guides nor any chain-stitching so the tools available were narrower. The 1880 overalls look and feel like the end product of that innovation were everything had its purpose. The lightweight seams actually make the rivets feel like they are points of strength while with the thicker seams of modern jeans the rivets feel like they exist more for aesthetics. And without bar-tacking the rivets, again, feel again like they have a critical job to do. There is something about their simplicity that is so compelling. No overlock, just single needle stitching, rivets, steel buttons, iron cinch, fabric, and a leather patch. The fabric itself is so incredibly raw, just pure natural indigo over the hairiest fluffiest lightweight American cotton with low tension selvedge.
That makes them liberating in so many ways. They aren’t about projecting an image, they are not only as Versace would say, something we don’t feel obliged to wear but something even rawer and simpler than any other pair of pants. What’s funny of course is that the time put into recreating these simple humble jeans requires more work than any designer label would put into it. From the natural indigo to the quad stitched seams to the single-needle lock-stitch to the ironing and constructing the jeans left to right, they are a remarkable piece of art.
I’ve struggled to come to terms with what the 1880’s mean even after wearing them for six months. They continually amaze me and have probably caused me more angst about what I think denim is about than any other pair. They’re a bit *too* good. Have we really not improved on jeans in 140 years? Is it possible that we just perfected what a pair of utilitarian pants ought to be like and since then have diversified more than improved?
The fact that people like Mr.. Cohen, the overall-women, and the rich-man’s son were so frustrated with not being able to wear overalls that they would transgress their social boundaries is a bit less surprising now. The 1880’s were a product of a lot of hard work, of trying to make people’s lives easier. Once someone donned the overalls it seems going back to anything else didn’t have the same allure. The 1880 overalls somehow free the body and the soul.
Interestingly, I don’t think my appreciation for other jeans has diminished with my experience with the 1880. Looks and silhouette and fades and thicker fabric and the wonderful strength of chain-stitching seams are incredible. But I think its easier to see why those are so interesting when you have contrast. Once we made the perfect pair of utilitarian pants we could compromise here and there to make them look nicer and feel more substantial while still maintaining their casual appeal. The 1880 was a gateway to the wonderful world of modern denim. So it’s really unfortunate that with the advent of the 501’s that the 1880’s got lost in history because modern jeans only make sense when we understand what gave them their impetus.
One last note to conclude:
I think one might wonder what is the exact point of recreating older denim. Is bringing back the 1880 overalls a bit like trying to bring the first Macintosh computer in the modern age of smart phones? Something unwieldy and out of place? In reality, I now feel that it is more like creating Jurassic Park. Trying to recapture the sewing techniques, the style, and substance of the past is tremendously difficult and an art of its own. So the 1880’s are more like a dinosaur. Not in the sense that they are old and dusty but because they are like a T-Rex: absolute wonders of what happens when you take something to its extreme. What can we do when we forget everything except trying to design the most liberating pair of jeans? TCB Jeans by bringing that back are bringing a monster into a new world. And that monster doesn’t for a second pale in comparison to its living descendants or relatives. It has a different architecture but its so committed to a particular way of doing things that there is barely anything that can compete with it on *that* singular focus. The king isn’t dead, long live the king.

2020.09.22 00:56 baristart Dog Trainer skipped town

Hi all! Looking for a bit of advice. We are in LA and hired a dog trainer. We bought a package of 13 sessions with the owner - we did about 7 of them and then we moved apartments- since we moved, They suggested we take a break for a few weeks so the pup get used to his new surroundings. Then Covid hit and a couple of months went by. I then saw on an Instagram post from her that she was moving to Chicago. We have tried several times to call, text, DM and even comment on the Instagram account. The business website itself had disappeared as well.
It said nothing in the paperwork regarding any sort of cutoff date or anything. I’ve said nothing in my messages to her so far outside of that we are willing to work with her virtually even. Completely ghosted and it’s been 4 weeks now. Is there anything we can do? We already tried our credit card company and they said that the charge was from too long ago for them to se d a request to her company. It feels crappy that someone would just skip town and leave unfinished sessions and ghost their clients.

MURRAY OFF TO A RECORD-SETTING START IN 2020

• In Week 1 at San Francisco, QB Kyler Murray threw for 230 yards and a TD and also rushed for 91 yards and a TD in leading the Cardinals to a win. He was even better on Sunday vs. Washington, throwing for 286 yards and a TD while rushing for 67 yards and two TDs on just eight carries. He is the first Cardinals QB with a passing and rushing TD in consecutive games since Jim Hart accomplished the feat in 1969. • Through two games, Murray has thrown for 516 yards and two TDs while rushing for 158 yards and three TDs. He is the first QB in the Super Bowl era to pass for 500+ yards and rush for 150+ yards through the first two games of a season. • Murray had TD runs of 14 and 21 yards against Washington on Sunday. He became the first Cardinals QB with multiple rushing TDs of 14+ yards in a game since Hall of Famer Charley Trippi (18 and 26 yards) against the Chicago Bears on 12/16/51 at Wrigley Field.Murray is the first QB in NFL history to rush for 150+ yards and 3+ TDs in the first two games of a season. He is also the first Cardinals player in franchise history – regardless of position – to rush for 150+ yards and 3+ TDs in the first two games of a season. • Despite having played in just 18 career games, Murray already owns five of the top-nine single-game rushing performances by a QB in franchise history.

Covering a punt return, Brewer jumped on a ball forced loose by TE Darrell Daniels at the WAS 40-yard line. Six plays later QB Kyler Murray scored on a 14-yard TD run to give Arizona a 14-0 lead.
• Second-year WR Andy Isabella hauled in a 54-yard reception in the second quarter to help set up a Cardinals FG that gave Arizona a 17-0 lead. Of his 11 career receptions, three have covered at least 50 yards (54. 55 and 88).

2020.09.21 22:49 teenagegumshoe I would like to gift an 'experience' to someone living in Chicago. Do you have any recommendations?

Hello!
My boss is located in Chicago, I am in Canada. She recently wrote me some letters of recommendation as I was applying to business school. I would like to give her a gift to show my appreciation.
Because she is now working from home, I can't send her a physical item like a luxury food basket or a bottle of wine, as I do not know her home address and I feel a bit weird asking.
I thought it might be nice to send her a gift card for something she could do in the city (like a spa, but it does not have to be a spa - I am open to suggestions).
Do you have any recommendations?
My budget is about $100 USD. I would prefer a something with a long expiry date (or no expiration date), so she can time it for when she feels the situation is safe.
Let me know if you have any further questions and I will try and answer
Thank you!

MURRAY OFF TO A RECORD-SETTING START IN 2020

• In Week 1 at San Francisco, QB Kyler Murray threw for 230 yards and a TD and also rushed for 91 yards and a TD in leading the Cardinals to a win. He was even better on Sunday vs. Washington, throwing for 286 yards and a TD while rushing for 67 yards and two TDs on just eight carries. He is the first Cardinals QB with a passing and rushing TD in consecutive games since Jim Hart accomplished the feat in 1969.
• Through two games, Murray has thrown for 516 yards and two TDs while rushing for 158 yards and three TDs. He is the first QB in the Super Bowl era to pass for 500+ yards and rush for 150+ yards through the first two games of a season.
• Murray had TD runs of 14 and 21 yards against Washington on Sunday. He became the first Cardinals QB with multiple rushing TDs of 14+ yards in a game since Hall of Famer Charley Trippi (18 and 26 yards) against the Chicago Bears on 12/16/51 at Wrigley Field.
Murray is the first QB in NFL history to rush for 150+ yards and 3+ TDs in the first two games of a season. He is also the first Cardinals player in franchise history – regardless of position – to rush for 150+ yards and 3+ TDs in the first two games of a season.
• Despite having played in just 18 career games, Murray already owns five of the top-nine single-game rushing performances by a QB in franchise history.

CAMPBELL’S RARE OUTING IN SECOND GAME WITH ARIZONA

• Signed as a free agent in the offseason, LB De’Vondre Campbell had a very productive outing against Washington on Sunday, finishing with 10 tackles, two tackles for loss and two passes defensed. In doing so, he joined Budda Baker (10/31/19 vs. San Francisco) and Adrian Wilson (9/30/12 vs. Miami) as the only Cardinals defenders in the last nine seasons (2012-20) to record 10+ tackles, 2+ tackles for loss and 2+ passes defensed in a game.
• Yesterday’s game marked Campbell’s seventh career outing with 10+ tackles, five of which have come in his last 15 games dating back to last season.

OTHER WEEK 2 NOTES

• LS Aaron Brewer – now in his ninth NFL season and playing in his 119th career game on Sunday – recovered the first fumble of his career in the first quarter. Covering a punt return, Brewer jumped on a ball forced loose by TE Darrell Daniels at the WAS 40-yard line. Six plays later QB Kyler Murray scored on a 14-yard TD run to give Arizona a 14-0 lead.
• Second-year WR Andy Isabella hauled in a 54-yard reception in the second quarter to help set up a Cardinals FG that gave Arizona a 17-0 lead. Of his 11 career receptions, three have covered at least 50 yards (54. 55 and 88).

2020.09.21 20:13 thatlady777 24 [F4R] - #Chicago suburbs- tall platypus lady seeks relationship with another intriguing and/or awkward being(s)

Hullo! I am a student living in the west suburbs of Chicago. I am a queer, polyamorous, kinky lady looking for a person or people to date and form a more serious relationship with, who are also understanding of my busy schedule.
A little more about me: I would consider myself highly empathetic and I believe in altruism, which is why I’m pursuing a career in medicine. I love to read and do crafty things in my spare time. I’m trying to go the gym more to improve my health; I am a curvy lady, and I try my hardest to embrace my body, but I still want to take care of it to the best of my ability by eating healthy food and getting plenty of movement in my weekly schedule.
I really enjoy people who share some of my values, mostly regarding the goodness of humankind and the drive to help others. I hope my future partner(s) would be kind, caring, loving, and that we just have a generally positive and joyful connection. I know this seems kind of vague and nonspecific, and that’s because I really like getting to know people on a deep level. What we agree/disagree about, what drives them, and so on, and I want a connection to happen naturally that way.
For anyone who wants to send me a message - feel free! However, please keep the following things in mind: again, I am seeking a person or group of people for a more serious relationship. I will not accept any messages from people looking for a hook up. Additionally, I am hoping for a partner or partners in the greater Chicago area, so please don’t message me if you’re from out of state. My preferred age range is 22-38, but if you are slightly out of that range, still feel free to shoot me a message and we can talk about it.
As a pansexual woman, I like to embrace the fact that I appreciate and love people of all gender identities, races, faiths, and belief systems. I hope I can find my person, and I wish you all luck in the same!
Thank you, friends!

"Monks Castle"
St. James Cemetery and Church "Monk Castle" - Chicago Suburbs - Lemont, Illinois
Suburban Chicago plays host to many haunts. One of the most haunted being the St. James Cemetery and Church located in Lemont, Illinois. This church was built in 1833 and is the oldest Catholic church in the Chicago area. The church acquired the nickname "Monk's Castle".
St. James Cemetery and Church
It is believed that a group of monks lived at St. James once. If they caught anyone trespassing there at night, they would make them kneel in payer to repent their sins all night until morning.

It was long rumored that trespassers caught on the Monk Castle grounds were taken to a dungeon-like room, where they were made to kneel in salt after Monks whipped their legs, causing small scratches. Afterward, instead of reporting to police, they simply let trespassers go once the pence was done.
Over the years there have been many sightings of robed monks roaming the cemetery and grounds late into the evening.
Sounds of chants in Latin the same as monks practice have been heard coming from the grounds at night even though nobody is around. All of this seemed to be rumor until 1977 when a police officer patrolling the area spotted a bunch of hooded figures walking the grounds.
He reported that they moved almost as if floating. After stopping and demanding that they come out, they continued walking up over the cemetery hill. After retrieving his shotgun, the officer pursued. However, once he crested the hill, there was no one to be found in the wide open grave yard.
Another haunt that takes place on the St. James grounds dates back to 1897. A phantom horse and carriage have been seen coming down what is now Archer Avenue and then pulling into the church grounds and stopping as if waiting for someone or "something".

Then it is rumored, a woman dressed in white has been seen dancing wildly coming out of the cemetery. She gets into the carriage and the carriage pulls away, only to vanish into nothing.

A former pastor confessed on his death bed in 1970 that on occasion he would look out the window of the church and see the ground rising and falling as if it were alive and breathing.
