fellow zoomers get ITT. I'm making this thread for myself, since it's all I listen to these days. don't hesitate to recommend shit you like. it does not necessarily have to contain rap. anything in the area of trip hop, downtempo, lo-fi, chopped and screwed, gorillaz. you get the idea

some artists:
https://knxwledge.bandcamp.com/
Knxwledge is a former soundcloud producer. he's the founder of the sound that YouTube calls "lo-fi hip hop" these days.
https://open.spotify.com/artist/3ZMur3elMyOs248ah86NRk
Mach Hommy, my current favorite rapper. possibly the greatest rapper of all time. just released a great album called Fete Des Morts.
https://mikelikesrap.bandcamp.com/
MIKE. rapper and producer. makes a LOT of music which is mostly him rapping over his own beats.

I'll admit I hate Marvel films, first off they're some of the glowies films out there, every single one fellates the Pentagon. The plots are almost all identical, filled with general pro-porky propaganda. The jokes are overdone and stale, literally Adam Sandler humor. The CIA is shit for such expensive productions. The characters are getting stale. Fuck these movies, death of cinema shit piles.

Reposting my rant about Wonder Woman:
It paints the most revisionist picture of WW1 I've ever seen with the typical "it was all duh GeRMaNs fault, BrITaIN GOOD DUH" which isn't true. Everyone involved in WW1 was equally an imperialist pig and believing that the Central Powers were the worse somehow despite the "good" guys starving something close to 2 million German civilians is baffling and just modern western media/history trying to paint their winning side as the good guys. Not saying that Germany WEREN'T the bad guys, just that if you're gonna criticize one imperialist power in a pointless war you gotta call the rest out for it as well.

I always see modern media streamline WW1 and make imperial Germans into basically 'nazies' even though those are two different time periods and screenwriters should actually read a book 'cause history is better at writing interesting and engaging tales than they are. Oh and also the whole "wonder woman" thing being shoved down the audiences throat with one of the most pointless and horrifying wars in human history into a consumerized, comedic, shallow-fem rights film that manages to make the superhero female lead somehow less important than the actual women who took part in the conflict.

2 Based takes about how Wonder-Woman is pro-imperialist trash

- https://www.aljazeera.com/indepth/opinion/2017/06/imperial-feminism-woman-170613101125222.html

Also an interesting part is how in the posters (pic related) the tank Wonder Woman lifts is a T-28, a Soviet medium tank that was created 17 years after WW-1. Feels like some-kind of anti-soviet shit, though more likely its just inattentive graphic designers.

As society has moved forward from the 20th century, a proliferation of postmodern skepticism made a lot of old propaganda techniques harder to pull off, and so propaganda often has to be a good deal more subtle and sub-textual to be taken seriously. Interestingly, this seems to disappear entirely if and when the creators start promoting the supposed diversity in their casting, setting etc. Rather flagrant, chauvinistic propaganda can be fed to liberals directly, and they munch it all down, eagerly, if they've been convinced it's a "progressive" work because of diverse casting.

Captain Marvel, which gender flipped an eponymous super hero and couldn't shut up about it, was a straight up ad for the US Air Force and didn't even try to hide it.

Now consider the following plot for a movie:
>A man is chosen by God to destroy Satan, so God whisks him away as a child to a special hidden island where he is trained by none other than the Spartans themselves in the ways of becoming a warrior, but his training is suddenly interrupted by landing soldiers from the outside. Turns out, these are soldiers that accidentally found themselves in the island due to a conflict in WWI, and after the Spartans kill the soldiers except for the American guy who they can tell is good, the American explains the situation of the war to our hero. Realizing this must be Satan's doing, our hero follows the American out and into the broader world, which he is originally repulsed by. The weakness, the decadence… and how do they even fight in these civvy clothes? But, as they get into battle, the normal humans prove their worth as our hero's American buddy sacrifices himself in the fighting to stop the damned krauts. When the hero finally breaks through and confronts the German general, it turns out he's not Satan at all, but a proud soldier who loves his country. So who was Satan? None other than the traitorous, peacenik politician who waPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

>What is HEMA or WMA?

Historical European Martial Arts or sometimes Western Martial Arts are attempts at decoding, studying, and practicing the history, art, and fighting of everything from the Medieval Period to Early Modern Combatives.

What traditions are you lot studying at the moment?

Okay, not to jerk the guy off any further, but this is unironically the best guide to footwork I've read so far. They're the most basic (hence, important) steps that practically everyone uses, but the most miraculous thing is the fact that he made a footwork section this concise and universal. The only confusing thing is that the figure has his left foot in front when the lines are meant for a right foot forward stance.

To put it more simply than it already is, you have full and half steps. Either can be forwards or backwards, straight or slanted though he says forward steps tend to be sloped while backwards tend to be straight. The two steps of the back foot that are given special attention are the oblique pass forwards and the circular compass, where the back foot circles behind the front. That's it. For earlier fencing that uses left-forwards as much, simply mirror the diagram and actions.

It's basically HEMA footwork 101 from a historical source. Only thing left to add I'd say is foot/hip turning and the role it plays in power generation.

Tbh I think it is leftist, it’s just that the current generation of leftists probably can’t comprehend the world of the post-Soviet collapse
Remember, Cockshott himself writes that around the 90s most leftists had given in and accepted the supremacy of liberalism and the Market. I think Boondocks is representative of that first generation having grown up when neoliberalism came to power and defeated the worldwide socialist movement.

No, this is absolutely 100% based for a few reasons:
1) you're a lot more likely to get rightoid converts if you openly proclaim support for free speech, and this will help shatter the common stereotype of muh authoritarian anti-freedom commies.
2) ALL leftists should openly agitate against censorship in the media/online. Why? Because if media corporations start censoring the far right, they're inevitably gonna start censoring us as well, as they have alreadty done in some instances on places like twitter and reddit.

The Valars were pieces of shit. If they were more proactive nothing of this shit would've happened.

Pretty sure that the Valar, as spirits with Iluvatar wrote the entire history of Middle Earth in song and the parts sang by Melkor became all the suffering and death and chaos he and Sauron would bring. In light of that there arguably wasn’t anything the Valar could do as it was all predetermined anyway. Plus Morgpth encountered the elves and men before the other Valar had, hence how he corrupted some each time.

To be fair, the Valar were probably freaked out about killing large numbers of "fragile" men in the upheaval. They didn't have to worry about that when they went to drag Morgoth out of Utumno since neither elves or men were born yet.
