2021.09.18 21:28 FranklinDeSanta Are the books as good as we hold them up to be?
Some context: I've been pretty depressed lately, and I've turned to the world of the witcher as an escape. I played TW3, watched the Netflix adaptation, the anime movie, and picked up the first six books (including the two short story collections), and I'm at A Time of Contempt right now (please don't spoil the rest of the books for me!). So far, I've really enjoyed myself going through this universe, and I think it's cool this underground polish hit is having a real cultural moment right now. The books, incidentally, have to be the first books I've picked up in years that have grabbed my attention and got me immersed in them, bc I've been struggling to read with my now crappy attention span and ofc mental health stuff.
However, I've noticed that wiedzmin users in particular tend to hold up the books as a holy grail of sorts, and sort of look down on the Netflix and video game adaptations in terms of how they handle the lore (the latter gets more love though, bc i think everyone acknowledges it's writing is pretty brilliant). I see users praising Sapko like he's the Polish tolkien, and I'm just having a hard time understanding this.
Don't get me wrong: the concept of a wandering monster slayer making difficult ethical choices in a grey world with a lot of politics thrown into the mix is really fun, enough that I've gotten this invested in the world lol (going to finish the books and then run through TW1-3 to fully appreciate the lore sprinkled in the games). I just think that this has been better, and been done before- I think ASoIF is a great example of a grimdark fantasy series with intrigue and politics and well-thought out characters, and this brings me to one of my biggest gripes with the books- the dialogue. I think this is partly to do with the translations' quality, but I think the Victorian style aesthetic is awkward, cumbersome, and makes a lot of the interactions in the series look slightly ridiculous sometimes. I get where the translator was going with it, but Geralt suddenly talking like a 19th century dandy courting a noblewoman really makes me snort while going through the books.
Now, I know this has been brought up tons of times before, but Sapko's treatment of women in these books is really difficult to swallow. You can make the argument that given the violent, medieval setting they're supposed to endure certain horrors, but there's a way to do that while also giving women agency and not characterizing them primarily boob-first. Nearly every interaction Geralt has with the opposite sex is underscored w sexual tension, and it honestly reads like a horny 13 year olds fantasies at points (I LOVE LOVE the sorcerers' ball sequence on Thanedd in ToC but all the enchantresses in the room lusting after Geralt really broke the immersion for me lmao). There's also no getting away from the predominantly male perspective of the books. While you might respond with saying that Ciri's POV takes up considerable space, even when we're seeing the world and herself through her own eyes, there's an uncomfortable emphasis on her sexuality, which is made more icky bc so far she's only fourteen.
With all this in mind, I think it's reasonable to have gripes about the show changing some parts of the lore, bc the lore is interesting in itself (like Geralt encountering Ciri in Brokilon for the first time being changed for instance), but it's not like the source material itself is profound enough imo to justify the sheer vitriol I've seen people spout against the show. Arguably, the game itself (TW3) has aspects that make it less enjoyable to experience as well, like the broken levelling system and difficulty for instance, along with the weird pacing and the controls, as well as Geralt feeling super floaty to control.
I guess my point is, while the books have a rich, immersive world to offer and the video games are fun and are a excellent examples of solid writing (TW3 in particular), neither of them are Pulitzer-quality, and don't justify the almost sacred attitude Sapko fans take towards them. And conversely while the show has its faults, given that the source material isn't exactly a paragon of fantasy writing, I don't think it deserves automatic contempt from witcher purists dissatisfied with everything about it. It's a reasonably entertaining piece of media, but ofc I'm open to seeing what you guys think is wrong about the way they've changed around the lore (I think one of the biggest gripes I have is that the hunt for the Golden dragon was much more fun in the books-loved the idiotic knightly chap a lot more in the books, as well as Yarpen Zigrin).
What are your thoughts? I'd like to repeat please don't spoil the rest of the books! Gonna be starting Baptism of Fire tomorrow. Also what are your thoughts on Yennefer and Geralt so far? I remember a Cavill interview where he talked about rooting for them bc he thought there was genuine love there, but all I see so far is a really toxic, controlling relationship lmao, Yennefer is kinda horrible to Geralt.

I plan on buying a rundown house in Swindon and modernising it. I can do a lot of work myself. But there are some stuff I've not got the skillset to do.
Ideally electian and roofer.
I've scanned through Facebook, but sometimes you just can't trust the reviews as anyone can create an account in minutes and review their own business.
So who to avoid please?

2021.09.18 21:28 jsb247 High pitched whine when accelerating, need help
I just installed a unit tonic CAI on my 16 Tiguan r line. At the last second that my buddy was helping tighten the last clamp he dropped the ratchet down into the engine bay. Couldn’t get to it from the front cause of the plastic so he tried to pull it from the back with a ice scraper. I know dumb as fuck.
Regardless, I was able to reach down and grab it and pull it out.
I turned on my car and let it sit for about 10 minutes and there looked to be some water dripping down from the rear of the engine are, my buddy said it was just the ac and some condensation.
I drove off and wanted to hear the new intake. I hammered down and between around 5-6 rpm a high pitched whine (like really high pitched) started and increased with the rpm and then would stop after shifting.
Is this just from the new intake? Is it the turbo getting enough air? Is there a leak? Did my buddy knock a hose loose or something?
Please help vw masters, I am but a young padawan

Hi, mu boyfriend had the J&J vaccine in june (we are from Colombia). He’s a 35 man, we do exercise, little of alcohol and no drug consumption. Everything was OK but 3 weeks later he began yo experience a constant headache near the temple, feeling anxious and sometimes with a high heart rate. We have visited some doctors but they refused to send tomography or a diagnostic exams, and two months later he is still with all those symptoms. Anyone has experienced symptoms like these ones?
