I wasn't really sure where to post this but I guess this is the most appropriate board given that Mukbang is considered "entertainment" by some people. Can you lads help me out with this? I've watched this shit more than once and it's just so repulsive and off-putting that I have trouble understanding what the appeal of it is supposed to be.

I don't know why exactly, but I feel like this genre of social media content is the perfect representation of how venal and awful late-stage capitalism is. All these videos depict pointless, disgusting excess that brings neither the audience or the person eating any lasting gratification. It's hollow, nihilistic consumption that only produces misery for everyone involved. Do the people who watch Nikocado Avocado slowly die from kidney failure get some sort of sick pleasure out of watching a mentally unwell man kill himself by eating an entire Taco Bell menu everyday?

My wife enjoys them because her anxiety makes it difficult to eat. But for some reason seeing friendly, approachable people (who aren't actually present, as that would trigger her social anxiety) eat helps her brain accept food it would otherwise reject. I think it has something to do with her extreme empathy, like, "If other people are hungry, I must be hungry too."

Hello everyone, I want to make a topic about books, but, ones that are too trashy for /edu/. Talk about books, request books, et cetera.

Well, I'll start off the thread by asking for recommendations for 'optimistic sci-fi' where humans and aliens get along (relatively speaking) and accomplish things. Bonus points if there's first contact involved, extra bonus points if there's interspecies romance. Mee-yow. I've already read a lot of books like this but I can't get enough. Thanks everyone.

I came here because I remember being very entertained by the series "Isaac Asimov's Robot City" even though it's not written by Isaac Asimov but by various authors, it's a good read but I read it when I was younger and I don't have a copy of the books anymore. Check it out if you like scifi and AI.

I hear some reading devices are like paper to look at. You might try one of those. Probably cheaper than printing books.

>Alan Moore was an idealistic radlib who thinks random violence without any planning after the results will do anything other than continuing the endless struggle.
yea i don't think he thought that, and you will notice this if you look into all the flaws with V's character, the flaws with the characters that he's supposed to be saving, and (if you read the actual graphic novel not watch the shitty movie) you will realise that the only person who is continuing the fight after V's death is Evie as the crowd simply riots around with no aim other than to smash the state, bringing the brutal fascist reign to its obvious conclusion of pointless individual violence with the aftermath unstated on purpose so that people can write in their own idealistic/materialistic outcomes, despite the fact that it can all only turn out one way (return to reaction), which is why Evie doesn't just "retire to enjoy the spoils" and it averts this entire "much wholesome" nonsense trope. the whole angle of the graphic novel was less so the outcome of it than basically a thorough deconstruction of how all of those "perfect" and "polite" politicians (remember he was writing this in a time before the internet when all of these cunts had the ability to carefully curate their public image as long as the msm were compliant) are actually horrible fucking human beings corrupted by power that backstab each other and commit degenerate acts endlessly, in other words they act exactly like the "unwashed masses" that the ruling class has such disdain for thanks to their projection, and in the context of thatcherite britain it was absolutely perfect.

alan moore may not be a revolutionary and he may not even be a particularly good anarchist with his occultist obsessions, but every artistic work he did has its nuances that need to be explored from a particular zeitgeist, v for vendetta included.

Again, this isn't incorrect, but it assumes that he was consciously writing this and not just depicting real life.

I agree that it was a interesting novel and film but I also believe it is overrated by many, partially because he doesn't really present a solution and it ends up being just like every other depiction of revolution's dirtiness. It becomes tiresome because I'm sick of reading about a novelized satirization of real life, when I live and experience it anyway. Might as well look out the window or watch the news for all the difference it makes.

i do, i read an interview with him where he specifically talked about this being intentional. i need to find it again, but i doubt he just used it to make himself look big brained post factum
>Again, this isn't incorrect, but it assumes that he was consciously writing this and not just depicting real life.
he was doing both according to himself. like i said, the zeitgeist of the time absolutely played a part in how this was written out. in the thatcherite years there was hardly a talk of revolutions or uprisings as depressing as that is, the focus on and depression after the trade unions defeat was too great, so his ending in the context of 80s britain was almost inflammatory while also being despondent at the same time due to the knowledge of how all of this was really just the system eating itself and not some indomitable will of the people or even one person. the most V succeeded at in the end was propaganda by the deed, but like each instance of it irl it led to nothing more than an outburst of momentary emotion, and the party members killing each other only confirms that the biggest damage was caused by the party itself, even to itself.

if he wrote v for vendetta in the modern context where the talk of "revolution" (however watered down) is basically a daily occurrence even with libs (either against it or "for" things such as "a diversity revolution" that means more female ceos kek), it would not be as genre defining.

watched ready player one with the family today.

it was okay, not as super obnoxious references as I expected. but, overall the plot was a bit miserable, basically the whole world has retreated into the virtual game due to the world being terrible late capitalist hell where 'people have given up trying to solve our problems', and the heroes struggle to inherit control of the virtual world from its creator instead of letting an evil corporation take it, at the end they just decide to control the game themselves as a group and 'the game will be closed on tuesdays and thursdays because reality is real'. also the game is like totally pay to win and addiction forming obviously, which they don't do anything about

I mean geeze they could have at least signed the game over to the community as a co-op or something, be a little more radical, especially since they rallied the community to help them at the end and a bunch of them died (permadeath item loss), then just became a monarchy.

But I guess that would require liberals to actually think democracy and popular control is desirable. The idea of 'virtuous elites' is pretty deeply entrenched. On the other hand, at least they ended debt slavery where the evil corporation would use people as gold farmers in the game, so it's pretty radical, for the late 1800s. Guess liberalism has never moved past that point so it fits.

Maybe we don't have enough power to have a great influence over politics but we have the power to have a great influence over people if we mobilize and take action by creating a new subculture to atract people's interest and take them out from that ignorance that leaves our enemies and traitors to win, a subculture with good aesthetic and it's own type of mentality will work the best to have a great change into society or just make things more fun a plan for this is SovCore.
>What is SovCore?
SovCore is a Soviet nostalgic subgenre of punk which incorporates several during or post Warsaw Pact aesthetics into one mixed with some alternative ones, it is a way to revolt against this Capitalist system and also promote a strong patriotic sentient.

>Mentality of a SovCorist

Basic Soviet mentality like Brotherhood/Sisterhood like minded, promotes gun, fitness or car cultures, helpful to community, feminist, aggressive, fanatical patriotic, AntiGlobalist, AntiFascist, AntiCapitalist, Antinationalist, racial separatist, continental unionism ex Asian Union, equalitarian, opposed to Capitalist rooten fruits such as sexual revolution stuff or mainstream pop culture

>Style

Basic alternative fashion combined with East European aesthetics such as military surplus or thug styles, the goal is your style to give an East bloc vibe, piercings are welcome in a small number and tattoos the best are the minimalist ones or based of Soviet prison tattoos ones

>Music

WitchHouse, Harbass, Post Punk, New/Dark wave, Chanson, Alternative rap the goal is to sound as gloomy, angry or Sovietic as possible

>Tobacco
i still smoke on occasion but i never really feel a strong urge to, usually it's just a time killer or social activity for me. i don't get much out of it apart from a really bad head rush sometimes.

>alcohol

not really worth it, coming from someone who tends to drink fairly often and drink a lot when i do so. i had a few rough patches the last couple months where i would just get pretty drunk by myself. the first few drinks or so would alleviate my anxiety and maybe even make me productive, but then the combination of boredom + general irrational behaviour sometimes compels me to drink beyond the point of feeling comfortable. as more studies come out more and more people are gonna be aware of how bad alcohol is for you, even compared to other substances.

>weed

i used to smoke pretty much every day but i've been feeling the urge to get stoned less and less. i think after a while you get bored of being high all the time. plus if you smoke really dirty spliffs like i do then you get put on your ass pretty quickly. also a spliff + too much drink tends to make me violently ill, and if i have to choose one or the other in a party environment it'll have to be the drink, since weed kills my ability to converse.

>ritalin

used to get prescribed concerta (ritalin generic) for ADHD when i was 14-15 but it's not really an instant fix. you are focused but not necessarily on the right task. i would frequently just end up on youtube or a random wiki for several hours or spend my entire evening furiously shitposting. if i took it in school i usually just ended up a sweaty anxious jittering mess for the whole day. i felt on edge constantly, as if i desperately wanted to fall asleep but couldn't because of the stims in my system. i cannot fathom why people would take this recreationally.

>adderall/speed

pretty similar to ritalin but i can actually understand using it in a party environment. still tends to make my anxiety flare up though. i haven't had an adderall prescription since i was a lot younger but i had a worse reaction to it at the time.
