>They were trained like monkeys from early childhood to play perfectly quantized notes by hand and now they’re big on YouTube
<Why did Adorno "Hate" Jazz?
> If the salon style is responsible for the supposedly individual element in jazz, which Adorno sees as merely a socially produced illusion of freedom, the march represents a "completely fictive community which is formed from nothing other than the alignment of atoms under the force that is exerted upon them"
>Adorno generalizes the argument to suggest that all dance, as synchronized movement, has something in common with the march.In the admixture of salon music and the march, bourgeois individuality,as expressed in movement-the casual gait of individuals from the salon- appears to oppose the strict order of the march, to release the dancer from the prison of strict form and give expression to the arbitrary nature of everyday life, a life which, Adorno argues, is not escaped through dance but playfully transfigured there as a latent order.
>Popular jazz music's apparently liberative gestures-those improvisatory movements that account for its success-express only the attempt to breakout of the fetishized commodity world without ever changing it. The formula to which Adorno repeatedly returns is that of the commodity that must be simultaneously"just like" all the others and yet "original"- the hit tune that must unite an individual characteristic element with utter banality on every other level.
>Adorno identified the characteristic element,what one might term the "virtuosic element," in jazz with performance and with the art of the arrangement that is associated with performance.What is essentially banal,as composition, is given a "make-over" in reproduction.
> Adorno's criticisms of the claims of jazz performance center on the fact that he believes this claim to freedom to be illusory.The interjection of the performer/arranger in jazz does not permit any real altering of the material in order to realize a genuine subjective freedom

Recently on the ukraine general the topic of Hobbit Camps in Italy came up in regards to NPR discussing Giorgia Meloni (new Italian PM then) and discussing the pipeline to fascism LOTR lead to (in spite of Tolkien himself being anti-fascist and not intending any fascist allegory in the first place - disliking allegory in general in fact). I thought it was thread relevant and rather funny to share. Maybe this is the reason the USSR didn't have an official translation published for decades?

You have to understand some historical context for Lord of the Rings. Specifically, the Lord of the Rings was arguably the first in what is now a proud tradition of liberals/fascists making political retard takes based on fantasy/sci-fi literature. Around the 60s, people started using it as their equivalent of "the guy we don't like is Voldemort and we're Dumbledore's Army". Ironically for these fascists, the most common political interpretation was the Mordor was Nazi Germany, but "Mordor is the USSR and the orcs are Russians" was a close second, and it's an interpretation that made its way into many of the early fan translations of the book in Eastern Europe. Apparently, one Russian translation completely ran with the idea that the Scouring of the Shire was a satire of communism.

If you haven't read the books, Mordor and the orcs are not even remotely communist, fascist, German or Russian, so these are all retard takes. However, unfortunately, it's retard takes that are apparently very popular in Europe, especially the butthurt belt.

this guy DJ Pons cracks me the fuck up. He's some researcher from new zealand who's probably the world's most dedicated proponent of dialectical materialism at this moment (tho probably unbeknownst to him).
>Abstract: The practice of project management is described by a codified standard, but many projects fail nonetheless. This paper describes a new conceptual approach for project management, using a systems-modelling approach to create a graphical representation. New activities are identified not evident in existing models. The model achieves a three-way integration of theory (proposed causality), process (operational detail), and software tools.

Idk if my brain is just fried from reading too much commie lit but this reads like a joke lmao.

Also his conceptualization of the cordus model brings science back to causality, back to materialism, and is all around very dialectical. It's honestly the most optimistic thing i've read in a long time, i dont care if it turns out to be a debunked chimera in 100 years (not that it has any takers now), because this guy (and the other authors) is bringing militant materialism back to science.


File: 1669490899676.pdf (28.64 MB, 255x217, Propaganda.pdf)

A lot of what Elull writes is theoretical, and it is very lengthy and verbose, but surprisingly I've never felt bored reading it. Reading anything by him felt more as if I was trying to understand the world around me.

As for Propaganda itself, it's hard to summarize it all, and I'm not going to copy paste the wiki summary of the book because anyone can do that. I can only describe it as "an explanation for why and how I would have gotten sucked into ____ politics." For a book written in the 1960's it's still extremely relevant, maybe even more so.

<Emotionalism, impulsiveness, excess, etc—all these characteristics of the individual caught up in a mass are well known and very helpful to propaganda. Therefore, the individual must never be considered as being alone; the listener to a radio broadcast, though actually alone, is nevertheless part of a large group, and he is aware of it. Radio listeners have been found to exhibit a mass mentality. All are tied together and constitute a sort of society in which all individuals are accomplices and influence each other without knowing it.

I'm sorry see if this works.

First game I played as Korea and made nazbol empire conquering Japan and indonesia. It was insanely easy probably because the civil war in China gave me independence and so I just industrialised in peace, I didn't even join a customs union but had highest GDP per capita, literacy and standard of living on the great powers list. War with all my neighbours was trivial and it was basically plain sailing and I didn't interact with half the mechanics in the game, I just built factories to increase urbanization and GDP even if they weren't profitable. Second game I played Haiti and it was going well until France declared war twice, tanking my economy and the second time they just bled me dry without sending troops until I went bankrupt which was so cringe. I will destroy them in my next playthrough mark my words.

>Software architecture refers to the fundamental structures of a software system and the discipline of creating such structures and systems. Each structure comprises software elements, relations among them, and properties of both elements and relations. The architecture of a software system is a metaphor, analogous to the architecture of a building. It functions as a blueprint for the system and the developing project, which project management can later use to extrapolate the tasks necessary to be executed by the teams and people involved. Software architecture is about making fundamental structural choices that are costly to change once implemented. Software architecture choices include specific structural options from possibilities in the design of the software.

This is a thread for general discussion of software architecture, the high level design of software and software systems. PDF dumps also appreciated.

Note: Software architecture is separate and at a higher level of abstraction that for example, object oriented design. There are specific patterns, methodologies, etc. for software architecture just as there are design patterns for OOAD.

Is this what Elon Musk was talking about?


yeah, pretty much. But if you explained it to your once-tech-literate grandfather and he explained it back to you.


Update. Predictably did like shit actually designing the system. It was a very naive approach, but I dropped more buzzwords than a clickbait tik tok video, but the engineer was pretty smart, so probably not impressed.

The hardest part was gathering requirements correctly. I stumbled through that and my requirements were shit. Then the design was half-baked, not thought through and mediocre. The engineer was cool and helped me along at least.

The most significant barrier to acing this was probably practicing. The problem was rather easy, tbh, and it didn't require any of the fancy shit you see on the design interview questions while studying. Still I struggled to design it. I was also nervous and figuratively shitting my pants all, so it could have been worse.

All things considered I'd say I did 6/10. At least my other interviews were strong so hopefully they balance out.

We are doing that already with technology. You can use a telephoto lense to see things that are too far away to see it with your naked eyes.
I don't think that people want to implant tech into their bodies, because they'd get stuck on a specific technology level. Maybe a thousand years from now when all the relevant technologies are super mature, and no longuer change much over the life-span of a human.

gant is the lost of anime


>The rapey creep vibe the MC gives off doesn't help either.
You're fucking stupid OP. Go read your shonen.

Do you know what a character arc is? For one he's worse than "rapey creep vibe" because he tries to blackmail a desperate girl into letting him have sex with her. But that's actually the best part of Gantz is just how much of an scumbag he is at the start of the story and the slow transformation he makes to being a noble person who cares about other people.

I'll kind of give you that but the mystery of Gantz is pretty clearly a macguffin. It's about the journey not the destination. I'd actually compare it more to Eva and how the very end is some woo woo philosophical thing.

I love Gantz and how they kept it fresh not following the same dynamics over and over again for the whole series. So many cool subplots that could've been their own whole manga like the suicidal kid who learns telepathy and etc.


remember how gantz introduces vampires as a major plot point and then just forgets about them


Imagine being willing to forgive a rapist lmao


Goblin Slayer trailer tricked me into believing the show is going to be fun. I was deaperate for an action anime, and kept excusing how bad that fucking garbage was for 6 episode until finally give up any hope that the show will do 180 and turn into something remotely watchable. Just edgy rape fetishistic weeb wishfulfillment fantasy with bad animation, bad dialogue, bad humor, no plot nor originality to speak of. Oh, and its fans keep comparing it to Berserk, because both are dark and have rape in them, and these absolute cretins think thats what makea Berserk good.



I recently got a phone because my old one burned out a few years ago, and I saw there was a mobile animal crossing game called pocket camp. It was fun for a week or so, but they fucking drown you in mechanics that are just there to make you discontent so you buy the solution. Unplayable by level 42.

But it's still an endearing formula, and I'm wondering what FOSS games out there are the closest to animal crossing? Doesn't even need to be on mobile, my main concern is modding. And if there isn't anything all that close, I think a "Super Tux Crossing" game would be a cool project.

If feudalism had markets, does that demonstrate that capitalism has always existed and is not truly escapable?


i don't think it works that way, in feudal times there were many collective relations of production like in the fields but does not mean communism always existed.


Capitalism is *generalized* commodity production.


capital predates capitalism, for example usurer's capital. what sets capitalism apart is that capital enters the sphere of production. in less productive periods capital mostly concerns itself with circulation. this is explained in vol III of Capital


Its so sad how few people manage to read until the last chapters of Das Kapital https://www.marxists.org/archive/marx/works/1867-c1/ch32.htm
>What does the primitive accumulation of capital, i.e., its historical genesis, resolve itself into? In so far as it is not immediate transformation of slaves and serfs into wage labourers, and therefore a mere change of form, it only means the expropriation of the immediate producers, i.e., the dissolution of private property based on the labour of its owner. Private property, as the antithesis to social, collective property, exists only where the means of labour and the external conditions of labour belong to private individuals. But according as these private individuals are labourers or not labourers, private property has a different character. The numberless shades, that it at first sight presents, correspond to the intermediate stages lying between these two extremes.
>The private property of the labourer in his means of production is the foundation of petty industry, whether agricultural, manufacturing, or both; petty industry, again, is an essential condition for the development of social production and of the free individuality of the labourer himself. Of course, this petty mode of production exists also under slavery, serfdom, and other states of dependence. But it flourishes, it lets loose its whole energy, it attains its adequate classical form, only where the labourer is the private owner of his own means of labour set in action by himself: the peasant of the land which he cultivates, the artisan of the tool which he handles as a virtuoso.
>This mode of production presupposes parcelling of the soil and scattering of the other means of production. As it excludes the concentration of these means of production, so also it excludes cooperation, division of labour within each separate process of production, the control over, and the productive application of the forces of Nature by society, and the free development of the social productive powers. It is compatible only with a system of production, and a society, moving within narrow and more or less primitive bounds. To perpetuate it would be, as Pecqueur rightly says, “to decree universal mediocrity".

For reference, here's the same animation with just the original keyframes (poses) before adding inbetweens and build-up or follow-through. I used several of these animation principles to make the animation look better. How many can you see?


>How many can you see?
6 or 7?
also a challenge: animate it at 50 fps :^)


It's actually not always ideal to animate things at higher frame rates. That's one of the techniques used (#9 in the video). The frame rate you animate with can convey different things.

The whole animation is 24fps (as in film), but parts of the animation are animated "on twos" i.e. with each step taking 2 of those frames. The early movement of the mouth and eyes are animated this way to make them smoother. A higher frame rate would probably look too jittery because the movement is small enough that variation in the lines would stand out. The beginning of the jerk backwards is also animated on twos so each step stays on screen a bit longer to be easier to see. On the other hand, the windup (leaning forward and squinting) and follow-through animate on ones to draw the eyes and cause anticipation to make the larger movement more legible, and to compress the time it takes to go through those more minor movements.

Reminder thta Glen didn't create the necromprphs nor the markers at all. This was the early concept of the zombie and it looked exactly like Callisto.
>According to The Art of Dead Space, an early idea for the Necromorphs was that their appearance would resemble bloated, translucent corpses that had floated ashore on a beach. However, this concept was put aside and later changed to how they look now. The creative team of Dead Space created hundreds of concepts for the look of the Necromorphs.
>The Necromorphs' creation and design were led by Ben Wanat, who served as production designer on Dead Space and Dead Space 2 and creative director of Dead Space 3. The creatures' backstory, ecology and end goal were developed by Wanat alongside franchise co-writer Chuck Beaver.
Game development is a collectivist product. Not an idea of one or two guys like liberals seem to think. Ben Wanat is now stuck at sledgehammer digging in the CoD mines.

Why do monarchists like Stirner?


What monarchists like stirner?
I could only see them arguing like: If I am to act according to my desire and appropriate the world to my liking, being a monarch gives me the best tool to do that.
However since monarchism is a social system there would also need to be a reason for the ruled to accept the moarchs rule (its gods will, the natural order) which egoism obviously doesn't offer.
Also I would argue that monarchs can't just realise their personal desires through rule because monarchy also imposes constrains on them.

What games do leftypol play? I played through Stalker recently, I also like Deus Ex, Mount and Blade Warband, Dark Souls. I play supreme commander daily and generally enjoy strategy games.

which ones are you playing through now? i'm doing a hard 'cturne playthrough on my switch. the hd remaster is pretty disappointing for its msrp, i expected something better. i bought it on a huge discount so it was worth it, but it's still annoying how they basically didn't bother to improve any aspect of the base game or redo/crop the fmvs in a better way. the only good thing they did was add the ability to choose your fusion skills


what is socialist about brutal legend?


I play Budokai Tenkaichi 2 with spergs and get my shit ran


i did the hardmode cockturns play and couldn't beat satan. final fight felt like a coin flip.


i really think a lot of it is like that, as much as i love the game. the element of enemies and the player being fragile to make level differences matter less than skill, ironically ends up killing you in dungeons and boss fights because of lucky crits and weaknesses you won't know about if you're playing the game blind. the fact that you get a game over if the enemy manages to kill your male-to-fiend doesn't help either



most covers change the timbre, the instruments, or the tempo. Not enough instruments actually change the harmony and the notes. Negative harmony allows you to do so pretty easily (or alternatively, to write "new" songs without much effort)

There's an urban legend that this is what they did with old Microsoft office stuff, see the comments of this video. Even if it wasn't the case back then, the fact that people believe it may have led to people trying it.

People like high res textures and they take up a lot of space. Also movie files on single player games.

I don't know why devs don't make low space versions of their games for people like you. You can get some nice textures where you can see the pixels like old school shit.


>don't make low space versions of their games for people like you
because it's extra time of work not in the budget


And also probably because people with low end systems don't have a lot of money lying around to buy games. Why make games for broke people?


another part of it is that if you're a poorfag, you're probably gonna get a switch lite or some last-gen console to play games with anyways, so games that do have low space versions will usually have them on these platforms rather than the pc, because piracy isn't really the norm outside of slavlands and some specific thirdie cunts

Most monsters on the street don't even recognize you as a human as far as dialogue goes(main characters and the royal guard being the few exceptions), so it could very well be that random fighting is considered normal among monsters to some extent, and not just because you're a human.

I'm surprised none of you have hopped on this bandwagon.


>Communist? No It preaches non-violence, no?
What? Communism isn't when you go monkey mode and kill without a plan.
Frisk is a human stuck in the barrier, which requires a monster absorb seven human souls to break. A human cannot absorb human souls, and Asgore only had 6 souls, Frisk, and assumed dead, Asriel's human sibling, who Asriel absorbed the soul of before seeking medical attention for, before getting fatally wounded by the villagers and dying, spreading dust onto the flower that would be imbued with determination by Gaster to become Flowey.
You have to do a pacifist route to make Flowey remember they're Asriel, because if you kill, you reinforce Flowey's idealistic maxim of "In this world, it's killed or be killed." By refusing to kill or die, you force Flowey to reach an epiphany, unblock his memories of being Asriel, and use the souls to break the barrier.
It doesn't just blankly preach non-violence, it presents a situation where violence directly goes against your material interests, because you need to refute Flowey's idealism.
IRL, communism requires challenging the idealism that makes people think capitalism is still viable.

I liked spamton at first but the fan reaction of turning him into some kind of hobo sex pest turned me off from him
Jevil is far better anyways, imho.

I'm making this thread here, because the other boards are practically dead. If a mod chooses to move it to /hobby/, that's cool, I just wanted some exposure on /leftypol/.

As you might now, chess played a large role in the Soviet Union. They outright dominated the game for decades and it was commonly played ever since the inception of the union.

I think chess does possess the potential to develop and train the strategic thinking skills of players, if they abstract from the game and attempt to apply it to the real world.

But it's also a fun game. Because of that I made a /leftypol/ club on chess.com, which is a great website with a nice UI and plenty of resources to learn and improve at chess. I've been using it for months now and got far better at chess and I even do the puzzles on it for fun every day. The way the website is designed makes learning chess and improving really, really easy. Making an account is free and would be quick. I know this sounded like an ad, lol.

So, I'm inviting you comrades to start learning chess or improve whatever skill level you are at and join the /leftypol/ chess club. We could play against each other. Perhaps even organize tournaments. I think it would be really cool if we could get something like this going and make it the community wide hobby. If only 3 people join that would be good enough honestly.

It looks really uninspired bare minimum effort for a remake.


it's shit lol stick to the original all they changed was making it dark as fuck so you can't see anything and have to jack up the brightness setting to max


if you wanted more dead space you should just watch the animated movies lol


The animations are still a bit jank but the gore was good.


They made the ship fully explorable. So similar to Prey and gave Issaac the voice actor from the second game.

I hear they're making some pretty neat RISC V cpus, and I think they also make the CPUs for ESP32s which are popular for hobby projects.


It's meant to be implemented, not built upon. That would break interoperability.


ARM isn't concerned with "interoperability", it's concerned with licensing its patents to manufacturers who use it as a base to design and build their own CPUs for any specialized purpose.


They are concerned, you are not allowed to change the architecture. Every Arm processor (licensed from Arm or built from scratch) must conform to the architecture and they validate this.


So is everyone here totally fine with a single corporation owning the whole stack from hardware to software just because theoretically you could run the mainline LInux kernel on it?



It seems as if the right is going against anime now if it hasn't been for the longest time.

It's another "American protectionism is disguised as idpol racism in order to sell it to the average ameritard" episode


japanese consumerism is usually superior and more dedicated since they rank artisans above merchants but it's still the same shit at the end of the day, most westerners seem to be more self conscious about it though. this is my general impression.


Japanese stuff is also just fucking adorable. Looks good in most spaces.


I remember checking in on 4chan to see what they've been about lately, and they seemed to chant about "tranime" whenever someone posted anime related stuff.
So yeah I guess the left owns anime as a medium now.


fuck yeah comrades we did it. Now we gotta release a 52 episodes anime about the Russian Revolution

Lovely chihuahua picture!


Forgive Me Father is a pretty fun boomer shooter. Not what I would expect from a H.P. Lovecraft-inspired game, but its all cooler because of this and the comic book-style 2.5D graphics.
