Hey all, I was curious at to what you guys think about the SCP Foundation shared universe.

NGL a dystopian organization like the Foundation going along with the state religion and putting pride colors on their logo is pretty on brand and only adds to the horror.


lgbt is the new stat religion??? on god??????????????????????????


>SCP fanfilm called metronomicon
>Set in USSR, made by Russians
Looks pretty good IMO

Post general thoughts, comments and marxist or any analysis on the show.

Ep 1 and 2 is out, Ep 3 comes out today.

Never seen GoT and enjoying the show so far, decent political intrigue so far.

Honestly Rhaenera is a dumbass. Shouldn't have sent young boys to do high level negotiating.

I see what you were trying to say now anon
Weird asf Green-Red alliance

I guess it's just some bored russians memeing


Should have sent both to the same place. A prince still commands respect. And even Aemond didn't really wanted to kill Luke. The scene was about the dragon being an unstable WMD, everyone hates Aemond now, I don't know why. At best you can accuse him of willful negligence.

Rhaenera is subpar to the top players of the game by a good amount. Her limited success comes from her strong willpower, her advisors and the sheer weight of her claim.

Partly, it's contrarianism, secondly it's the infatuation with realpolitik over romantic idealism.

But hey, the cast seems like really nice people. I like shows where I can't stand the actors, but this is luckily not the case here.


>>30858 (me)
Also, there seems to be a good axis between the actors, the showrunners and GRRM. They all said they had great freedom in creating these characters, some dialog was improvised. Also this is the only show I know where the female directors deliver the good episodes.

Really shows you what kind of narcisisstic failsons D&D were.


what are some shows where you hate the actors, spill the tea

What is good media?

is anything that isn't directly an anti capitalist allegory automatically bourgeoise trash?

Is watching "high brow" media necessarily high brow? Are you watching as an intellectual exercise. Is watching shit media and being critical of it any less of an intellectual exercise than doing the same for "high brow" media.

Is the emotive experience of some media good on its own merits, in terms of, escapism being good for the human mind?

Is escapist media part of what suppresses the proletariat?

What necessitates a positive media experience, one that is properly healthy and proletarian? To be propagandised at? The good kind of propaganda I mean.

When you watch something imbued with capitalist ideology, and you are watching, supposedly critically, is that not, an educational experience?

Is seeking idle entertainment as part of an otherwise well rounded life a negative character trait?

I don't know, should you, my guy?


Debord? You should but he did not write about media.
> The empty debate on the spectacle – that is, on the activities of the world's owners – is thus organized by the spectacle itself: everything is said about the extensive means at its disposal, to ensure that nothing is said about their extensive deployment. Rather than talk of the spectacle, people often prefer to use the term 'media.' And by this they mean to describe a mere instrument, a kind of public service which with impartial 'professionalism' would facilitate the new wealth of mass communication through mass media [English in original] – a form of communication which has at last attained a unilateral purity, whereby decisions already taken are presented for peaceful admiration. For what is communicated are orders; and with great harmony, those who give them are also those who tell us what they think of them.
> The power of the spectacle, which is so fundamentally unitary, a centralizer by the very weight of things, and entirely despotic in spirit, frequently rails at seeing the constitution under its rule of a politics-spectacle, a justice-spectacle, a medicine-spectacle and all the other similarly surprising examples of "mediatic excess." Thus the spectacle would be nothing other than the excesses of the mediatic,[5] whose nature, unquestionably good since it facilitates communication, is sometimes driven to extremes. Often enough society's bosses declare themselves ill-served by their media employees: more often they blame the plebian spectators for the common, almost bestial manner in which they indulge in mediatic pleasures. A virtually infinite number of supposed mediatic differences thus serve to dissimulate what is, on the contrary, the result of a spectacular convergence, pursued with remarkable tenacity. Just as the logic of the commodity reigns over capitalists' competing ambitions, or the logic of war always dominates the frequent modifications in weaponry, so the harsh logic of the spectacle controls the abundant diversity of mediatic extravagances.

Often when when talking about leftist fiction, it is in relation to speculative science fiction.I'd like to have a thread to discuss not only fantasy with leftist themes, but fantasy in general.So, read any good fantasy recently?

Is it chddy to think black hobbits native to the north is weird?
Immigrant I get but native should be too mixed out by third generation, unless hobbits practice jim crow


No it's a reasonable question as it doesn't make narrative sense, following the world-building. The only reason it'd be 'chinletdy' is if your reasoning is "hurr blacks in de shire is bad" or some /pol/shit like that.


I think it's weirder for hobbits to be diverse per se than to have black hobbits. Black hobbits per se isn't necessarily odd. I vaguely recall descriptions of hobbits being brown, or maybe specifically their hands/feet looking brown. People tolerate drow being pitch black in the underdark even though logically they would be extremely pale.

Hobbits all having dark skin for some reason would be one thing, but having a small and famously sedentary group of people be diverse makes no sense at all - where do the different phenotypes come from? I guess you could have an explanation but there is a weird trend in fantasy lately to completely ignore actors' and characters' ethnicities even when it raises obvious questions. If you want black hobbits just make them all black or change what hobbits are so it makes sense. Occasional black halflings in D&D is fine because the lore is totally different and they live all over the world, but for what the lore is in Tolkien it's weird to have significant diversity in an area that's roughly equivalent to rural England.


In the Silmarillion, Men came wandering out of the east when they first encountered Elves iirc. I think proto hobbits also had a similar wandering period before settling down in the Shire. If I was writing the show, that's how I would explain it at least, that this community has picked up different hobbity folk in its history of travel. IIRC, Smeagol isn't a hobbit either, but his people are related to hobbits. I'd imagine that this group is also made up of not quite hobbits, before settling down into what will become the hobbit community.

Or you can just say that Eru works in mysterious ways.

I've seen only a few other threads about horror on here and they seemed too specific, so I thought I'd make a broader one.

How do you feel about the current state of horror media? To me it seems at it's always been in a way; a mixed bag. However I feel like I've noticed this trend and, correct me if you think I'm wrong, a lot of more successful recent horror seems to be more creator-driven than in the past.

This is natural I think, as the internet has opened a lot of opportunities for more unique visions and riskier decisions that large studios would otherwise reject.

In a strange sort of symbiosis, though, these large studios attempt to acquire these successful creators and even properties for themselves; see the phenomenon of Slenderman for example. Once an entirely community made, solely internet creation has gotten several of his own movies, and has by and large become an 'artifact' of sorts of 2010's-era web. Studios cannibalize these unique properties and, once they've made some modicum of a profit, utterly destroy the integrity of them, leaving communities to look for the next big thing in horror.

With that aside, feel free to discuss almost literally anything horror related here; movies, books, ARGs, games, creepypasta (the rare good kind, if you can find any).

What's the politics of The Thing
Do any John Carpenter movies have ideology?


Oh nvm I got my answer


File: 1667236741564.png (61.27 KB, 750x321, ClipboardImage.png)

Is horror even a coherent discursive object even in cinema? A lot of it is more along the lines of exploitation AKA pushing people's buttons for money. Then there's also gore/splatter/visceral type stuff. And then there's a bunch of auteur-ish wildcards that can only extremely awkwardly and dubiously be labelled "horror".


Stalker is the Soviet Apocalypse Now

It's about HIV/AIDS and jingoistic Cold War paranoia

Anyone watch NASCAR?


Bros if all goes well tomorrow I might get an 1100cc yamaha cruiser. The thing is it will be my first motorcycle and thats a really bigass bike for a first timer, but it looks dope and I figure I'll learn eventually.


What model?


Hopefully it's not a Virago. If it is, I hope anon knows their way around a starter motor lol


I just bought this model yesterday 2005 yamaha v star 1100, the other ones fell through.

I bought it used and I live in apartments. I regret this decision already and I want to sell it lmao. It's not running properly, it kinda dies after idling for a second or two. Its has a carb, I wish I knew how much of a pain in the ass they were before buying. Never get a carbureted motorcycle, they always need the fucking carb cleaned and maintenance is a pain in the dick. I should have gotten a newer year that was fuel injected. I have no idea how to do the maintenance and don't even have a garage, I just bought a new battery and am hoping that fixes it.

It's also heavy af (650lbs), I shouldve gotten a smaller one as a beginner and this one doesn't have crash bars.

Just my luck to buy a bike that is barely running. I just bought it because the exterior was in good shape and it onky had 5k miles.

They do if its Vibram soles


depends on the purpose. for running, running shoes give you a strong advantage due to energy return.
for general wear, zero rises are best. Converse or any of the many "barefoot shoes".
for hiking (backpack < 20 lbs), shoes are good
for backpacking(backpack > 20 lbs or on loose/rough terrain) boots are best.

They do matter in terms of providing more grip. something like this will give you a lot more grip especially on wet ground


File: 1667094323627.jpg (869.24 KB, 1873x2153, boot.jpg)


the budget balenciagas made me lol but if you can afford it more modern boots are nicer, especially if you're eg. going backpacking on rougher terrain where the benefits of a boot are most needed. for example these boots I have had (salamon 4d) have a lot more ankle support and cushioning, and also have proper eyelets halfway up the ankle so you can tighten them down more around the ankle and not so much on the top of the foot. leather is also nice and the rubber on the toe cap stops that from getting worn through as easily. my 2 cents
