Mars is meant to be China/Russia: power ascendant superpower that spends too much o mill tech compared to its own internal development.


Spoilers ahead:

So they decided to kill Alex off due to Cas Anvar being #metoo'ed in a really hamfisted way. They reshot a bunch of scenes where they go like "yeah, he got a stroke. Happens!" after they showed Alex "dying" by showing him not moving in the cockpit while they inserted an acceralting beep soundeffect. Really? The entire tension in this season was built up for Naomi's fate, to dump another main character while she remains unscathed seem cold as fuck, and I think viewers will notice. It's basically an off-screen death. I just don't understand why they didn't just have a recast? His character arc feels completely unfinished.

Shame on an otherwise decent finale.


>in a really hamfisted way.
how redundant. the entire show is ham fisted and emotionally manipulative

>emotionally manipulative
What do you mean by this? I didn't get the impression from the authors that they're trying to manipulate you with their character designs. They even defended Marco Inaros on Twitter.


A mate of mine told me this is actually how Fred Johnson dies in the books.

For me, it's socialist economics grafted onto a 50's-60's Americana aesthetic architectural superstructure.

Reject concrete. Embrace brick.


maybe some smaller buildings but I love thicc unpainted concrete walls


Fellas, we all can agree that brick brutalism is the way to go


yes, the attacks on brutalism being souless have always fallen flat for me, there's something about the thick concrete that makes an impression on you in a way that glass and steel don't.

A three way discussion about capitalist ideology in old school D&D on 4/tg/ just settled down because it was, in all honesty, threatening to become a bit of a bloated chain of replies and draw /pol/ like flies to honey. I think there's about 3 commies in that thread, which was rather unexpected.

I have to imagine at least one of those anons was a /leftypol/ack.

So is there anyone here interested in oldschool D&D?

Neat campaign settings and a significantly different style of play, with different expectations of the players and the DM.


How so?
Every time I've played itit's also so numbery…


Prior to 3e, player characters had less abilities so you had to come up with novel solutions to problems rather than looking at your character sheet for answers. Characters were also squishier so death was expected to be common. Stats were rolled 3d6 "down the line" so if you got 8 strength and wanted to play a fighter, choose another class or tough luck. Campaigns were less about RP heavy fetch quests and more about exploring / managing resources in the dungeon. Players often did the mapping. It was nice


To use vidya as an analogue, you could compare it to something like Darkest Dungeon than Skyrim. Death is part and parcel of the game, and the story is what the players make of the world rather than determined by the DM.


And there's also a whole (sub)genre of music that is Heavily isnpired by it.

He was a stalinist let's player in the early 2010s. His old old channel before getting booted from youtube was JVSLetsplays or something like that. He ran a leftist forum called the JVS forums.

My love of 4x strategy games and my formative years as a leftist are thanks to him. He's not a stalinist anymore and has become well nuanced and grown as a person. Towards the end of that video he made some good observations on the state of modern global politics using hegelian dialectics.

I feel like such an oldfag writing this but I'm only 23. Where is everyone? I had assumed at least one other fan would be on leftypol these days.


I think I've heard of him before


Is he joking when he says the Gulag Archipelago turned him off Stalin? If not, lmao.


that got me too I'll admit because solzny is bullshit as nuanced people should be aware. Yet, he comes back around to the dialectic later in the video and his channel was never hard theory anyways. (And he'll probably get better over time with community input too.) He's an aesthetic youtuber from a different era that some internet leftists grew up with 10 years ago.

Reminder that smoking is class traitorism. You owe your best possible body to the revolution.

1. Male movie reviewers literally review movies as bad because female actors don't show enough tits. The male gaze objectifying people to consume them is absolutely an injustice, any Marxis should oppose the commodification of women. Of course brosocialists hate "woke identity politics" so they'll never talk about how Hollywood contributes to the ongoing rape of women in porn lol

2. How many white settler colonialist people will point out the obviously CIA funded movies, or the inherent fascism of heroic myths for Iron Man/Black Panther/etc

This is a redpill for morons who don't understand capitalist systems.


How about instead of The Blob, its The Bob. And its about an Indian guy who goes around a small town trying to see titties


>White settler colonist

hello there, falling for that CIA glowie Sakai again are we?


>The male gaze objectifying people to consume them is absolutely an injustice,
No it isn't, even by feminist standards. The male gaze argument is that objectifying women socializes men to mistreat women. It's supposedly a contributing factor to injustice, not an injustice unto itself.


>The male gaze objectifying people to consume them is absolutely an injustice, any Marxist should oppose the commodification of women.

I agree but this is not what Mike is arguing. The reality is that many people, especially women, have to choose between putting food on the table or making a piece of authentic work, speaking out against sexual harassment or being targeted by big names in the entertainment industry. There's no place for women to run to in order to escape the rampant exploitation in the industry without being blacklisted from it.

Celebrities like Brie Larson are more than happy to allow this to happen as long as they can stay in their multi-million dollar homes. That's because they make their paychecks by meeting the male gaze and nodding their heads towards the men who perpetuate it (look no further than how liberals/celebrities destroyed #MeToo for Biden). For every Brie Larson, there is an underbelly of underpaid female editors, writers, and etc. who add to the bulk of the value of the movie, but aren't paid if they did, so that Brie can be paid millions of dollars based on her looks alone.The cherry on top is that she's defending a capeshit movie of all things, a genre that could show a literal turd for 10 hrs and viewers would still ask for a re-release with director cuts.

It's performative feminism at its' finest, the sort required by most celebrities nowadays because their masters are upset that consumers are starting to realize just how disgusting they are. The sort that tricks women into believing that progress is being made when nothing in the superstructure has fundamentally changed.

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?

I'm a feeder degenerate who gets off to women engaging in gluttony, I don't know if that explains the male mukbangs.


I'm a bit into the same thing but for males, but I found mukbang disgusting from the moment I saw it. Plus I don't think the majority of people who watch this stuff have that fetish.


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."


It's fun to watch people suffer for cash? There's a parasocial aspect to it? I dunno dude, ruthlessly criticizing everything that exists gets tiring, it's all so terrible and we're just yelling into a void.


I have no idea what the appeal for mukbangs of regular food, but I think one nostalgia critic youtuber guy actually went out of his way to search for weird shit to try and I always liked that, just because of how disgusting a lot of it the obscure crap was.

Play baseball? Watch baseball? This is the thread!

This thread was created during the 2020 COVID crisis so the MLB isn't playing this year it seems. Hopefully you guys have decent Cuban, Venezuelan, and other games to watch.

And you are even more so


I want to get into watching sports but my parents hate sports and I'm afraid they'll catch me up and say something insulting.


>my parents hate sports
How so? Do they hate athletic activity in general? Are they overprotective?


Just "dumb sportsball, only morons watch sportball" types plus none of theme exercise and makes excuses to keep eating super processed food.


That sounds more like they don't give a fuck, so I wouldn't worry about it.

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.


Dragon's Egg is a scifi about an alien first encounter, written by an astrophysicist (Robert Forward). It's awesome - everyone I've leant it to that has read it said it was great.


What's the cheapest way to print a copy of a digital book (that I pirated)? I can't read for too long on a screen, mainly because it's uncomfortable and because I get easily distracted. Plus, I would like to recommend >>13688 to my dad but I don't want to subject him to hours and hours of looking at a screen.


> I can't read for too long on a screen, mainly because it's uncomfortable and because I get easily distracted.
I hear some reading devices are like paper to look at. You might try one of those. Probably cheaper than printing books.
