2023.06.02 18:50 WashKitty Newbie questions about starter
Hi. New to starters (obviously). I live in the PNW, room temp is around 67-68°F, so starter lives on the fridge. I used the KAF starter recipe (so please don't come for me about the amount of starter that I have😅). 1:1:1 recipe using rye flour for the initial creation. Day 2 saw AMAZING double growth (as written about in the Fresh Loaf Pineapple article), fed once with unbleached AP KAF. Day 3 saw less growth, fed 2 times, 12 hours apart as per KAF instructions. Today is day 4. What you see above the rubber band is the 12 hr growth from the last feeding 12 hrs ago. This is how much is grew after the first feeding on day 3. Plenty of bubbles, a bit of liquid, as seen in the last photo and a nice, pleasant, fruity smell similar to grapes maybe? The texture is similar to the slime that kids play with? Very stretchy, pourable, snotty?😅 I THINK I'm in phase 2? I found this reddit group this morning and read through some posts, read the fresh loaf article and am now entirely overwhelmed. My question is, should I keep feeding twice a day or not? What I've read says that could dilute it or not give it enough time to eat. The FL article says once a day until yeast forms, then twice a day. How do I even know when that is? Thanks for your help!submitted by WashKitty to SourdoughStarter [link] [comments]

2023.06.02 14:18 deskrib Shimano-105 front derailleur compatible with an Ultegra crankset?
Chainring Size: The R8000 front derailleur is designed to work with larger chainrings compared to the R7000 front derailleur. The R8000 is optimized for chainrings with a maximum size of 46-53 teeth, while the R7000 is optimized for chainrings with a maximum size of 50-52 teeth. If you are using smaller chainrings within the R7000 group, the R8000 front derailleur may not provide optimal shifting performance. Chainline Compatibility: The R8000 front derailleur is designed for a slightly different chainline compared to the R7000. The chainline refers to the distance between the centerline of the bike frame and the centerline of the chainrings. If the chainline of your R7000 crankset does not match the chainline designed for the R8000 front derailleur, it may result in poor shifting performance or chain rub.So I'm wondering if changing from 50-34 to 52-36 would also require me to change the front derailleur? The installed front derailleur is the Shimano 105 FD-R7000-FL.
2023.06.02 02:41 kira12141518 AITAH: for not wanting anything to do with my SIL and her pregnancy?
I (30f) have a SIL (26f) let's call her Kim. Kim has 2 daughters aside from this pregnancy, Rebecca (5f) and Ashley (4f). Now Kim and I aren't very close because the way she chooses to live is basically the opposite of how I live, though we have been dealt similar cards in life. I have a total of 4 kids myself 3 girls and a son. Elsa (10f), Annie (9f), Alice (7f), and Edward (5m) are my kids. Edward is my husband's only child though he loves my daughters just the same. Rebecca and Ashley are Kim's ex's daughters, let's call him Adam (26m). Kim and Adam had a very toxic relationship, multiple times of cops and CPS getting involved. I won't go into specifics but between them they caused my MIL and FIL to lose their apartment twice. Kim and Adam moved to FL a few years back after they went to court and Kim lost her rights to the girls and was only given visitation while with my MIL. Needless to say the same toxic behavior went on in FL, my MIL's sister ended up having to step in and take the girls for a time to keep them from being taken by CPS. It was at this point Kim begged MIL to come get her and the girls. Of course MIL went and got them (for reference we live in IN and KY so roughly a 14 hour drive one way.) MIL informed Kim she would be getting a job and getting her own place and filing for support against Adam ext. (This was going on 2 years ago) None of this ever happened and if it did she never stuck to it. Now my IL's finally have rented a house and the girls have their own room as well as Kim. MIL keeps pushing Kim to do what she needs to as a mother to take care of her kids, Kim is having none of it. Fighting MIL just about every day, and leaving her daughters with IL's for weeks at a time. When she is home she doesn't spend time with her daughters she's locked up in her room. Fast forward a bit to about 2 or 3 months ago. The family finds out she is pregnant again, and no it's not Adam's. She claims it's a guy who is just about double her age who got her pregnant. Now I have nothing against his age, what I have against this guy is that HE should have known better even if she doesn't care, he knows she has 2 girls she doesn't take care of. Now there are medical reasons on top of this that makes me upset with her for getting pregnant, she is putting both hers and the baby's lives on the line. Now Adam has offered to pay for an abortion as long as she leaves this other guy and comes back to FL with the girls so they can get married and have their family together again. Now idk about you all but I call bullshit. They are both toxic and want to hurt the other, all while not giving two sh1*$ about their daughters. My IL's have been the ones to take care of these girls almost since the day they were born. They have sent money to FL when Kim and Adam had no money, had them and the girls stay with them when they couldn't pay rent and had no place else to go. In other words my IL's have been more of parents to Rebecca and Ashley than Kim and Adam ever have. MIL has the girls on insurance and foodstamps now since Kim refuses to do so. MIL can't get Ashley signed up for school without Kim or Adam signing guardianship papers and neither one of them will do so. In other words they don't want to take care of their kids but don't wanna let someone else take care of them either. Now I know this is getting long so I'll try to sum up the rest the best I can. My oldest 2, Elsa and Annie have the same dad. We had a toxic relationship so I left, I went into a deep depression and ended up pregnant with Alice. Now Elsa and Annie's father talked me into going back but I didn't tell him about my pregnancy. (Very dirty I know and not my proudest moment) Shortly after moving back in with him I found myself remembering why we split in the first place. I had no where to go but my mother's in Detroit MI. There was no way I was taking my babies there so I made a deal with my ex, once I got back and was back on my feet I'd take the girls back. I left him with their insurance and foodstamps and all other medical information to be safe. I went to Detroit and was there for less than 2 months, I had Alice and her father came and took her. (If you want to hear about that story let me know) A few days after that my now husband Ian (28m) came up with his friends to bring me back home to IN. The whole time I was in MI I called my daughters at least 2 times a day, I broke out in hives because of my anxiety and stress from being so far from my girls. Now fast forward to about a week ago. (This is the straw that broke the camel's back) Kim and MIL got into an argument over MIL giving a bit of soda to Rebecca, after MIL suggested that Kim let her have a drink of there tea and Kim said no. Now all this happened while they were in MIL's car on the way TO MIL's house. Without going into too many details MIL told Kim if she cared so much about her daughters why wasn't she the one raising them. To which Kim replied that I shouldn't have my girls either then since my ex has custodial. (Again if you all want to know more let me know) I won't go into detail but I have fought for years in court for the time I have with my girls so this p1$$3d me off severely so I have cut Kim completely off. Pregnant or not I'm not lifting a finger to help her now. So AITAH?

2023.05.31 16:02 FelicitySmoak_ Song Of The Day Discussion : "The Girl Is Mine"
"The Girl Is Mine"submitted by FelicitySmoak_ to MichaelJackson [link] [comments]
October 18, 1982 - 1st single from Thriller
Written by Michael Jackson. Produced by Quincy Jones & Michael Jackson. Duet with Paul McCartney. Recorded April 14-16, 1982 at Westlake Studios
This was the first single released off the Thriller album. Although it was one of the weaker songs, it was released first because it was guaranteed airplay thanks to McCartney's contribution, and if they didn't release it first, radio stations would play it anyway and wear it out. Also, it was the first song completed for the album, which they were still working on. This was released a month before the album came out. The next six singles all came after the album, and were all Top 10 hits as well.
At the time, many big albums contained a song with a prominent guest vocalist to attract attention. Released ahead of the album, this song gave no indication that Thriller would become the best-selling album of all time. Listeners were not impressed by "The Girl Is Mine", and thought that Jackson's Thriller would also be a disappointment. The public felt that Jackson and the producer, Quincy Jones, had created a song for the white pop audience
The lyrics are mostly friendly banter about who has dibs on the girl. The song was a very safe choice as the first single, since it was very conventional and easy to understand. Jackson was afraid that if he released an edgy song like "Billie Jean" or "Beat It" first, people wouldn't give the album a chance. McCartney was 40 years old and well into one of the most stable marriages in rock (to his wife, Linda, who was present at the recording session), when this song was released. Hearing him bicker with the 24-year-old Jackson over a girl was kind of ludicrous, but there are only so many homosocial duet topics out there.
According to Jet Magazine, Jackson wrote the song with McCartney while watching cartoons. Jones had apparently approached Jackson about writing a song featuring two men fighting over a girl. Liking the idea, Michael, woke in the middle of the night one evening and sang the song into a tape recorder. “I sang exactly what I heard in my head, starting with the melody and the keyboard and the strings and everything,” Jackson said. “So, I just orally put it all on tape.”
The song was recorded at Westlake Studios, Los Angeles, from April 14 to 16, 1982. The year before, Jackson and McCartney had recorded "Say Say Say" and "The Man". Several members of the band Toto participated in the recording of this song, including David Paich (piano), Jeff Porcaro (drums), Steve Lukather (guitars) and Steve Porcaro (synthesizer programming). Although "The Girl Is Mine" was released as a single, Jackson and McCartney never performed the song live. The single's cover photograph was taken by McCartney's wife, Linda
Michael Jackson said:
"One of my favorite songs to record of all of my recordings as a solo artist is probably 'The Girl Is Mine' because working with Paul McCartney was pretty exciting and we just literally had fun. It was like lots of kibitzing and playing and throwing stuff at each other and making jokes.We actually recorded the (instrumental) track and the vocals pretty much live at the same time, and we do have footage of it, but it's never been shown. Maybe one day we'll give you a sneak preview of it."Thriller engineer Bruce Swedien told MusicRadar about one of Jackson's studio quirks:
"Interestingly, we always recorded with Michael in the dark - he hated light. I mean I would have a little bit of light for him, but the studio was absolutely dark. I think one reason why he wanted this - and why it works so effectively - is that through my study of acoustics and so on, I found that the human being is primarily a visual animal, hearing is our second sense. People can be distracted by too much light in the studio to the extent that it can take away from the music."Despite the song's success, it received generally mixed reviews from critics who considered it to be the weakest song on Thriller. Journalist Robert Christgau described the pairing of McCartney and Jackson as "Michael's worst idea since 'Ben'". Rolling Stone stated that the song was a "wimpoid MOR [middle of the road] ballad" and that McCartney was "tame". Billboard called it a "breezy lighthearted love song capped by some playful superstar banter at the tag." Stephen Erlewine of AllMusic noted that the song had a "sweet schmaltz". Jackson's breakdown with the "irrepressibly silly Paul McCartney" was "disarmingly goofy", according to Stylus Magazine. Salon.com later described "The Girl Is Mine" as a "sappy duet". They concluded that McCartney had become a "wimpy old fart".The song garnered a favorable review from Jackson's biographer, J. Randy Taraborrelli. The writer stated that the song was "cute" but lacked substance. He added that the track had a "middle-of-the-road calm" and was the antithesis of the "rambunctious" "Beat It".
"The Girl Is Mine" has been the subject of two plagiarism lawsuits, the first in 1984 and the latter in 1993. Both instances required Jackson to testify in court, and each lawsuit was decided in his favor. The first legal trial occurred in 1984, with Fred Sanford claiming that Jackson had cut a tape of his song, "Please Love Me Now". Jackson, however, insisted that he composed "The Girl Is Mine". The $5 million copyright suit was closed after the jury of five men and a woman reached a verdict in favor of Jackson. Their verdict was reached after a three-day deliberation. Jackson was not a defendant in the trial but testified to maintain his credibility.
James Klenk, Jackson's attorney, praised the singer upon the jury's verdict. "The man is a genius. He doesn't need anyone else's songs. His own words were the key." During the court proceedings, Jackson revealed how he composes his songs. "I put them in a tape recorder and I orally sing them into the tape, and that's how it happens." One juror stated, "His presentation indicated that he was well able to develop his own songs."
The song's second plagiarism trial was in 1993. Reynaud Jones and Robert Smith alleged that "The Girl Is Mine", along with "Thriller", written by Rod Temperton & "We Are the World", resembled their musical works. The pair added that they had been childhood neighbors of the Jackson family when they had resided in Gary, Indiana. Jackson, Lionel Richie (co-writer of "We Are the World") and Quincy Jones were named as the defendants. The plaintiffs asserted that Joseph Jackson had received a demo tape from them. From the tapes, the defendants were alleged to have stolen the three hit songs. Reynaud Jones also claimed that he had considered suing Jackson over "Billie Jean". Jackson appeared in court via a taped testimony. Following the testimony, the nine-member jury found Jackson to be the writer and composer of "The Girl Is Mine" in early 1994. They also ruled that the defendants had not plagiarized "Thriller" or "We Are the World"
In 2008, for the 25th anniversary edition of Thriller, Black Eyed Peas singer will.i.am remixed "The Girl Is Mine", featuring an original solo demo of the song by Jackson without McCartney. will.i.am added his own vocals and new verse. The song reached #12 in New Zealand, #22 in France, in the top 50 of Denmark and Sweden, and #51 in Switzerland.
The remix received generally unfavorable reviews from music critics. Journalist Christopher Rees stated that will.i.am had "done a fantastic job of murdering a classic song". Rob Sheffield of Rolling Stone wrote that at will.i.am's production was "dumb-thug bluster" and criticized him for trying to hide the "goofy 'doggone' hook"—"the whole point of the song". Music journalist Aidin Vaziri wrote that will.i.am "completely erases Paul McCartney's vocal track from the original duet to make room for himself spouting nonsense". Stephen Thomas Erlewine of AllMusic claimed that will.i.am had turned "The Girl Is Mine" into a "hapless dance number". Kelefa Sanneh of Blender wrote that "will.i.am contributes beats (why?) and rhymes (why, oh, why?) to 'The Girl Is Mine 2008'". IGN's Todd Gilchrist stated that will.i.am's "The Girl Is Mine" remix was an offense. The offense was made even more "egregious" by the insertion of his own "atonal vocal presence" in place of McCartney's.
Pitchfork Media added to the unfavorable reviews, stating of will.i.am, "He takes Macca off 'The Girl Is Mine' but decides it can't work without someone sounding like an idiot and steps manfully in himself." The Times stated that whoever thought it was a good idea for will.i.am to participate in the song ought to be "locked in a windowless cell with nothing but those songs on a continuous loop".PopMatters, however, praised Thriller 25 and the remix of "The Girl Is Mine". They wrote, "Any album good enough to make you forgive (although maybe not forget) a song as bad as the Paul McCartney duet 'The Girl is Mine' has got to be damn good." They added that will.i.am had put a "breezy spin" on the track and that the song's omission of McCartney did not suffer because of it.
Though the remix sampled the demo, The Daily Telegraph alleged that McCartney was omitted because he and Jackson had fallen out over Jackson's purchase of Sony/ATV Music Publishing and the Beatles' song catalogue in 1985. However, the original version of "The Girl Is Mine" was included on Thriller 25 with McCartney's vocals included.
Fifteen years after this song was released, Brandy and Monica teamed up for a lyrically similar duet, "The Boy Is Mine," which drew inspiration from this song.
It has been covered 28 times
And sampled in 11 songs, including:
