Soviet History Books from the USSR?Hey /edu/ bros, I'd like to find out if there are any books on Soviet history from historians in the USSR that an English speaker could read? I know there's Trotsky's history of the revolution, but I'm looking for something more comprehensive, covering at least up until the Khrushchev period, if possible. I feel like when people argue about Soviet history, we always toss around names like Conquest, Applebaum, Kotkin, Getty, Tauger, and yes even the dark lord of history Grover Furr, but the only Russian historian I see often on here is Zemzov, but I only know him from graphs and citations. Would very much appreciate feedback, thanks.

Power Metal threadI fucking love Blind Guardian, I've been neglecting all their albums other than the first 2 for the past 5 or so years, only recently did I begin to appreciate Tales from the Twilight World and Somewhere Far Beyond, they're such wonderful and epic albums

Catchy folk/ propaganda music.No boring ass woody Guthrie singing about how sad it to be from Oklahoma while strumming his guitar. I want synthesisers, fast rhythms, weird ass instruments you’ve never heard before. I want shit that would make you want to get up and dance in your local town square with other third world peasants.

USSR mediaSo my grandma lived in Lithuania back when it was an SSR (She says she was born right after ww2 for reference) and she liked the movies there, from what I can gather they were family friendly affairs similar to the first pirates of the carribean in tone, any comments and maybe recomendations for old soviete media?

Catharsis in Anime & MangaHave you ever noticed that a large portion of anime and manga expresses the desire to escape from the monotony of late capitalism in Japan? There's a prevalence of scenarios in seinen (young adult / 20-50s~) media which protagonists are taken in by loving females. As well as a bulk of romcoms to support Japan's large population of "herbivore males" (men uninterested in relationships.)

Retreating from Real Life into SimulationsHow far is too far? How mundane will simulating life get? Are we going to recreate the entirety of real life in a virtual world to escape reality? Is there anything so banal that it won't get a simulator game made about it? This isn't even interesting, like a depiction of the life of a professional lawn mower, with some kind of reflection of the place of lawns in modern society. You just mow lawns. Who is this kind of thing for? People who live in places where lawns aren't a thing? People who want to be that 30 year old boomer with his riding lawn mower but can't afford a yard? Why does this exist? Why does anything like this exist?

World of WarcraftDoes anyone play this game or wow classic? I used to play quite a bit of classic, TBC, WOTLK and early cataclysm. TBH i consider the first three expansion packs unbeatable in their quality, esp. Vanilla and TBC. WOTLK was also the height of Arena pvp.
Martial arts threadComrades let's have a thread for martial arts, combat sports and self defense. Striking, grappling, all styles welcome (except fake ass shit). Let's talk about training, techniques, fights, fighters, etc. Here's a fun fact: One of the many achievements of the soviets was founding their own combat system, sambo, which proved to be extremely effective and is still widely practiced today. Also, Judo orange belt here (AMA if you want)

On the Socialist/People's Republic of RomaniaAnyone know any good books for reading up on the history of the RSR/RPR? Pretty much every book I've been able to find have been Ceaușescu screeds written by devout anticommunists, which for the most part don't discuss the earlier history of PCR
