Riding the wave of his NOVA era and starting a new one with his label launch, it’s an exciting time to be RL Grime. So, what better time to host a live AMA on Reddit? That’s exactly what happened yesterday and there’s a lot of information to take in via the /r/trap thread.

RL Grime just pulled up with SableValley and the imprint’s first, stunning impression, “Arcus” with Graves. In the AMA, he reveals he has plenty more releases on deck, so get ready!

The next step involves signing and supporting the music that means the most to him. He’s taking submissions now and the AMA details what he’s looking for. Also, he explains what the Sable Valley acceptance letter really means.

RL Grime covers a lot of ground here, but the main takeaway is that he’s feeling better than ever about where he’s at with his project. He’s ready to push forward on his own terms. Read up below to get a better scope on his creative outlook.

RL Grime – /r/trap AMA

This is RL Grime. I just launched my new label Sable Valley. AMA from trap

One of the top questions came in from TYNVN:

Comment from discussion OfficialRLGrime’s comment from discussion "This is RL Grime. I just launched my new label Sable Valley. AMA".

rl grimeRL Grime just took some time to answer some fan questions on a Reddit AMA a week after launching his record label, Sable Valley.  In tandem with the launch, he released a single with Graves titled ‘Arcus.‘  Throughout the AMA, RL Grime hinted towards what people can expect from his label, looked back at previous releases, talked about collaborations, and more. Here are some highlights from the AMA!

1. The label is designed for sharing music RL Grime loves

Reddit: What kind of music/vision are you and your team trying to cultivate for Sable Valley? How are you guys trying to stand apart from other “artist started/run” labels?

RL Grime: there isnt necessarily a specific sound or genre, but im going to be signing and supporting music that speaks to me. I think if youve been to my shows, listened to my mixes, or ever talked to me about music, you know that my taste is all over. obviously i love huge cinematic bass heavy dance music, but i dont want to put it in a box like that. it really could be anything (breakbeat, techno, hardcore, whatever) .. at the end of the day its just about records that i really connect with and would be excited to play in my sets.

2. His collaboration with Mr. Carmack might get progress

R: I think I speak for everyone here when I ask, will you ever release your collab with Mr. Carmack?

RL G: to be totally honest i dont even remember what that sounds like. i think it was a demo we made years ago that he played a few times in his sets. ill hit him up and see what the deal is with it

3. RL Grime is starting to build a community

r: My question is: I got an email saying I was ‘accepted’ into Sable Valley. Does this mean I’ll get to release with the label? Or is it going to be like some sort of producer group or something?

RL G: the acceptance letter was not me signing anybody. it’s a way for me to begin to build the community that is going to be core (lol) to this label. we’re still figuring out how best we can involve people, but this is something that’s going to be a huge part of Sable Valley. for example, members will have early access to sable valley tours, music, merch etc.

4. RL Grime already has music ready for release

R: What can we expect from you and Sable Valley this year in terms of releases?

RL G: already have a few releases lined up for the year.. i really want to put out as much music as i possibly can, but obviously i want be hands on with every release, and im very specific about the things i support.

5. A Whethan collab might be happening

R: Saw you and young Wheaty hitting the studio. How was it working with him ?

RL G: whethan is a beast ! such a nice guy and a wizard on ableton. very excited to work more with him

6. RL Grime’s thoughts on collaboration and spending time touring

R: In this day and age, what are your views on artists having production teams that they oversee to make a final product i.e bassnectar, excision, diplo, etc. Do you feel this takes away from the artist in any way or is this the reality of modern music where touring is much more lucrative than spending a bunch of time creating music.

RL G: this is a great question. at the end of the day, i think its important to have your ideas come through on music that has your name on it. i think collaboration, and working with producers is a very legitimate part of the creative process, and can often help facilitate ideas that are better than the sum of its parts. i’ve found that its most important that you connect with WHO you are working with .. all my favorite collaborations started organically, with a friendship.

as for the second part of the question, its tough because the more you tour, the less time you have being at home, in a comfortable space, making music … and as you grow, the expectations grow along with you. I think personally how I have dealt with this is making sure to take chunks of time out of my touring schedule to focus on creating

7. The circumstances which created ‘Amphibian’

R: Amphibian is one of my favorite songs of ANY kind, do you have any memories about making it? And would you be open to bringing it back in your sets?

RL G: i like that you asked about amphibian, because I often still find myself looking back at that moment where I was making that specific song.. i remember being stoned on my couch in new york in my tiny apartment with the window open with my headphones on and the sun was coming through and I remember feeling very warm and writing that song. its probably one of the most vivid memories I have of making anything. as for bringing it back to my sets, unlikely, unless I were to rework it, because i hate the mixdown

8. He knows exactly what he wants to do after gaining perspective

R: How are you feeling about the RL Grime project? I know you started with Clockwork and then moved to RL Grime. Do you see another project in the future? And if so, what type of music do you think you would produce under the new alias?

RL G: to be honest, i’m feeling more inspired about the RL project, and music at large, than i have been in a long time. after putting out NOVA i feel like i gained some much needed perspective. in retrospect, the NOVA album process was pretty grueling, i worked with so many people and heard so many different opinions that would affect my choices. i’m so grateful to have gone through that process because I feel like now more than ever I have an understanding of exactly what I like and what I want to make. and now, especially with Sable Valley, i feel like i can pursue EXACTLY what i want to be doing on my own terms.

'Goosebumps' Author RL Stine Did A Hilarious 'Ask Me Anything' On Reddit — Here Are His Best Answers

r.l stine goosebumps book series
Amazon
More than a few children were kept awake at night after reading horror legend R.L. Stine's "Goosebumps" series.

His spooky stories about werewolves, mummies, and all things that go bump in the night were the perfect combination of fright and humor.

The iconic writer decided to answer questions in a Reddit "Ask Me Anything" on /r/IAmA yesterday — here are his best responses, just in time for Halloween:

Why did most of the "Choose Your Own Adventure" stories end with my characters' death? - Reddit user super_slayer

"You were TERRIBLE at making decisions."

Did it make you happy knowing you deprived me and countless others sleep for weeks? - Reddit user OctopusSlacks

"Yes, it did."

How do you feel about popular electronic music artist RL GRIME's name/pseudonym? - Reddit user zgoldenone

"R.L. Grime and I keep in touch. I do a voice-over every year for his Halloween mix tape."

What is your favorite horror novel? - Reddit user HempHouse

"'Something Wicked This Way Comes' by Ray Bradbury."

Robert Stine/Google+
How the heck did you think of names for all those characters?- Reddit user way_fairer

"A lot of the character names came from my son's school directory."

Have you ever had any personal supernatural experiences? - Reddit user Klass

"Once when I was an editor at Scholastic, I was sitting at my desk when I felt myself rising up from my body. I floated up to the ceiling and looked down on myself sitting at my desk below. It lasted only a few seconds and never happened again. No drugs were involved."

If you could meet any other author, living or dead, who would you like to meet? - Reddit user tabbyh

"I'm so lucky. I've met almost all of the writers I'd like to meet, including Kurt Vonnegut and Ray Bradbury. How lucky is that!"

What's the best advice on writing you've ever received? - Reddit user justinw_

"You won't believe this, but here in its entirety is the best writing advice I ever got (written by an editor at the top of my manuscript): MORE LORE."

What's the funniest fan mail you've ever received? -Reddit user TheyCallMe-JT

"One of the funniest letters I received, from a girl: Dear, R.L. Stine, I'm having trouble keeping up with all your books. Do you think you could stop writing for a while?"

Did you set out to write a children’s series or did it just happen? - Reddit user WifeAggro

"I set out to write for kids. I love scaring kids!"

Reddit-RL-simulator

This repository provides simulator codes for predicting and tracking popular discussion threads on Reddit.

Data

Thanks to Hao Fang and Trang Tran for preparation. Here are basic statistics of filtered subreddit data sets (in order to have long enough discussion threads, we filter out discussion trees with fewer than 100 comments):

Subreddit# Posts (in k)# Comments (in M)
askscience0.940.32
askmen4.451.06
todayilearned9.445.11
worldnews9.885.99
nfl11.736.12

Due to Reddit policy, we cannot redistribute the database files. We provide post identifiers in reddit-RL-simulator/data/${subreddit}_postIds.txt, with each line corresponding to a separate post id. For example, in askscience, if a post id is "2phjxu", then the post url would be https://www.reddit.com/r/askscience/2phjxu/. Reddit and python packages like PRAW provide APIs to access Reddit contents.

// I've removed the Google drive link for our database files.
// Please create the .db database files and put them under reddit-RL-simulator/data/

Basic Usage (dependencies: Python 2.7)

To run the simulation, simply type:

python MySimulator.py --K 3 --N 10 --dataFile data/askscience.db

After typing the above command, you will see the following three print-outs (state, list of sub-actions, reward). The sub-action order may differ.

State is a list of comments being tracked (the length of list depends on M argument):

state: [u'Is the heat I feel when I face a bonfire transmitted to me mostly by infrared radiation or by heated air?']

The second print-out is a list of sub-actions (in our combinatorial setting, an action is selecting K sub-actions from N sub-action candidates. In this demo, N=10):

actions: [u"Thanks! Follow up question, if it's not too complicated to answer: Similar to what henrebotha asked, how come visible light doesn't heat me up while infrared wavelengths do? Do other wavelengths warm humans similarly to infrared, or is that a property unique to that range of the spectrum?", u'[deleted]', u'[deleted]', u"> visible light\n\nBut then (and please forgive the extremely ignorant question) why doesn't it feel hot when I shine a flashlight at my face? \n\nEDIT: Thanks, I've gotten plenty of half explanations now. ", u'Yes, you are right. \n\nThe thermal radiation created by the bonfire travels away in all directions. Heat that is transferred via convection mostly travels upwards as the heated air billows up. If you are to the side of the fire, the heat you receive is transferred via thermal radiation. If you are standing directly above the fire, you receive heat from both thermal radiation and convection. For this reason, directly above the fire is the hottest place to be. I don't recommend it. \n\nNote that thermal radiation can include many different wavelengths of electromagnetic radiation and not just infrared, although infrared is the dominant type near room temperature. For a bonfire, the thermal radiation is composed of both infrared radiation and visible light in significant amounts.\n\nUPDATE: In loose usage, the term "thermal radiation" means "radiation that is able to heat an object upon being absorbed by the object". In this usage, all electromagnetic radiation is thermal radiation, from radio waves to gamma rays. In the more strict usage of the term, "thermal radiation" means "radiation that is produced in a broad spectrum that depends on the temperature of the source". In this stricter usage, the visible light from LED flashlights is not thermal radiation, since LED flashlights do not operate that way. Each photon from the LED flashlight is not different from a photon of the same frequency from a campfire - they can both heat something they strike. But the spectral frequency distribution of the photons from an LED bulb is not thermal.', u"But read the post above mine:\n\n> the thermal radiation is composed of both infrared radiation and visible light in significant amounts.\n\nIt's saying there's a significant amount of visible thermal radiation. What's the difference between visible thermal radiation and light? ", u'[deleted]', u'It is simply because of power. A good old fashioned flashlight with a tungsten bulb will probably emit 90% infra red and 10% visible, but there will only be 20 watts in total. A bonfire on the other hand will be emitting around 5,000 to 50,000 watts or more, mostly in the infra red spectrum.\n\nStand next to a 1000 watt light bulb, you will feel the heat.\n\nEDIT: Reading some of the replies below, there is one example everybody can relate to. If you set up a 1000 watt green laser beam (that would be a powerful cutting laser) it can be entirely visible light on one wavelength, but it will heat up and vaporise a piece of steel some distance away. But to confuse things, a lot of cutting lasers use infra red light simply because it is more efficient to produce.', u">Stand next to a 1000 watt light bulb, you will feel the heat.\n\nBut aren't you still just feeling the heat from IR given off by the bulb, not the visible light? I sounds /u/henrebotha was thinking that by /u/chrisbaird's description, /uchrisbaird is saying that you feel the heat from the visible light given off by the bonfire.", u'Flashlights are designed to primarily output visible light, IR output is minimized. ']

The reward is summing up Karma scores in the action at the last time step. Since we just start tracking this discussion tree (the state is the post itself), this time step our reward is 0:

reward: 0

You can continue the simulation of tracking threads by typing your choice of action (a list of integers). For example, typing "0 3 4" (choosing "Thanks! Follow up question ...", "> visible light\n\nBut then ...", and "Yes, you are right. \n\nThe thermal radiation ...") at the above state will transition to the next tuple:

State:

state: [u'Is the heat I feel when I face a bonfire transmitted to me mostly by infrared radiation or by heated air?', u"Thanks! Follow up question, if it's not too complicated to answer: Similar to what henrebotha asked, how come visible light doesn't heat me up while infrared wavelengths do? Do other wavelengths warm humans similarly to infrared, or is that a property unique to that range of the spectrum?", u"> visible light\n\nBut then (and please forgive the extremely ignorant question) why doesn't it feel hot when I shine a flashlight at my face? \n\nEDIT: Thanks, I've gotten plenty of half explanations now.

But the spectral frequency distribution of the photons from an LED bulb is not thermal.']

List of sub-actions:

actions: [u"If I'm not mistaken, it also depends on your skin tone. If you have a rather pasty complexion, you reflect most visible light (that's why the skin appears 'white') but if you have a darker skin tone, you are absorbing all wavelengths except those that you can see.", u'Thanks for the clarification.', u'I think what he meant is that if you had a hypothetical bulb that emitted 1000 watts of visible light but nothing in IR, it would feel very warm.\n\nNothing like that currently exists-- even the most efficient red LEDs are still putting out half or more of their output as waste heat rather than visible light. But you could approximate the effect with a couple of pieces of IR-filter glass, so that only light shone on you.\n\nTo get the same amount of "feeling of heat" from just visible light to compare to a campfire would be stupendously bright. Since we can't see IR, there isn't a good intuitive understanding of how "bright" a campfire would be. ', u'[deleted]', u'Do you mean "INvisible thermal radiation"? \n\nTechnically, there is no difference between thermal radiation and light. They are both examples of electromagnetic radiation (i.e. conducted by photons). However, what we commonly refer to when we say "light" is the visible spectrum, approximately 390 - 700 nm (violet to deep red).\n\nEdit: Just wanted to add that how efficient the flashlight is depends on how the light is generated. If they use the old tungsten type bulbs, which basically relies on heating a thin piece of wire until it glows, then most of the light generated is infrared rather than visible. Newer flashlights use LEDs, which generate light by using the movement of electrons, and therefore generate more light in the visible spectrum.', u'[deleted]', u'We had a handheld floodlight at my old workplace that was so powerful you could feel it burning after 10-20 seconds, even when you were a few yards from it. ', u'A significant amount of the visible light is still being absorbed by your skin, and results in heating. ', u'[deleted]', u"One can feel heat from both infrared and visible light. There's just more infrared present so that does the majority of heating. \n\nEdit: I'd like to mention that some saunas use IR light as a heat source for the occupants. IIRC some airplanes use it for de-icing their wings as well. "]

You can edit the main function in MySimulator.py to hook up with your own agent and RL framework. The interface is designed so that you can treat this task (predicting and tracking popular discussion threads) as a black box:

(state, actions, reward) =mySimulator.Read() # state is a list of string (state-text), actions is a list of strings (sub-actions), reward is a floatmySimulator.Act(playerInput) # playerInput is a list of integersmySimulator.Restart(dataset="train") # after the episode ends, restart another episode by randomly picking a discussion tree.

Note that in mySimulator.Restart() function, user can choose to restart with a discussion tree in either train/test (by setting dataset to "train" or "test"). This way we make sure the models are trained and tested with different discussion trees to show how well the models generalize.

More Details

reddit-RL-simulator/reddit_vocab_5k.txt stores the most frequent 5K vocabulary of Reddit data set.

There are more arguments with MySimulator.py:

--mode: There are 5 modes in our simulator. In [1] we always chose mode=1 to ensure we are learning in a "real-time" threads tracking scenario.

mode = 0: tracking based on tree structures, not time stamps, immediate children (direct responses) are returned
mode = 1: tracking based on time stamps (more real-time scenario), first N children (in subtrees) are returned
mode = 2: tracking based on time stamps, first N children (direct responses) are returned
mode = 3: tracking based on time stamps, after T seconds, tracked children (in subtrees) are returned
mode = 4: tracking based on time stamps, after T seconds, tracked children (direct responses) are returned

--K: At every time step, the agent picks K comments to follow.

--N: At every time step, at most N new comments can be shown (in mode = 1 or mode = 2).

--T: In mode = 3 or mode = 4, the number of seconds between two time steps. New comments following tracked comments, between this time period, will be returned.

--M: If not None, only the most recent M comments will be in the state.

--dataFile: Path to the database file for a particular subreddit, e.g. data/askscience.db
