What if instead of landing in the burger heartland, Kal-El landed in the middle of the Soviet Union? What if instead of Ma and Pa Kent, the man of steel was raised by the other man of steel?In light of this thread >>>/leftypol/164364 I think it's time to storytime Superman Red Son. It's about 150 pages total, over 3 parts.

It’s a problem with modern, early-2000 writers like Millar. They’re big fans of the type of assholes with guns rather than supes so they’ll wank those guys to oblivion while nerfing people like Superman. Only Morrison do it right.

How much do you guys read a day (time, pages)? What do you consider ideal? Do you devote markedly more time/note-taking to theory/philosophy per page than other non-fiction or they pretty much the same?

Reading for the first time in years, I'm not really sure what I should be aiming for as a baseline, especially since my schedule is pretty open. I'm reading a rather long history book at the moment at the rate of about 20-50 pages a day, yet it takes me hours to get through due to extensive note-taking and writing down words I want to commit to memory. I enjoy it and it seems to pay off, but I can't deny it's almost prohibitively meticulous. There's so much I want to read between now and this time next year that I'll never get to if I keep this pace. Just wanna get a ballpark from you guys.

Also discuss whatever you're reading now, plan to read, other questions you have about reading, note-taking, and so on that isn't fit for /edu/. OP is just a springboard.

I dont track pages really. I just spend a good 3-4 hours everyday reading/notetaking/journaling off of whatever nonfiction I’m reading. I’m slow as fuck however so a rough estimate would probably be 30-40 pages in that time. However I do have more spare time then most so it’s not a good benchmark.

If you go to a big library you’ll realize that even if you read your whole life and did nothing else you probably wouldn’t even cover 1% of the books out there. Knowing this it’s important to keep in mind reading is ultimately to develop your own thinking/creativity so you can write your own books/theory later. It also helps put into perspective you should only really read what you like/what is suited to your personality and attitudes. There has to be a certain point you stop reading and start writing instead otherwise you’ll just end up reading your life away. Also if you read uncritically without taking notes/ adding your own thoughts and thought process you wont get much out of it- you’ll only remember vague details.

So nowadays I use books to trigger my own thoughts on topics to jot down really.

I could recommend the doomsday machine by Daniel Ellsberg, man who leaked the pentagon papers.
It covers the history of US nuclear strategy and has plenty of funny anecdotes in it.

the guide

first, choose a nonfiction book you’d like to read and set aside an hour or so. I recommend something that feels like reading it would be nice, but which you do not feel a lot of pressure to read.

second, read the title page and scan the preface. at this point, try to set aside your impressions and see what the author thinks the book is actually about. the title and subtitle might actually be a better guide to this than anything you’ve heard about the book.

third, using the table of contents as a guide, take a few chapters (the first, the last, and any which seem particularly vital or pivotal to the book), and sort of x-ray them. read the first and last few paragraphs; read the section titles if it has any, read the first and last paragraph or two of each section. you don’t need to be strict about this, the point is to get a sense of the contents of these chapters and their relationship to the book as a whole.

fourth, examine the remaining chapters in the same manner. any order will be fine. just adjust as necessary if you find you’re losing sight of the whole work or of the parts of the chapter at hand.

again, you should spend no more than an hour on these four steps. you want to get a feel for the contents of the whole, and for the contents of each chapter that comprises the whole. this sounds like a difficult task, but it’s actually fairly straightforward. you just take an hour or so and apply these steps.

when you’re ready, you can now read the book in full. you will have the bones, and much of the meat, in your head already. the book should be far less intimidating, and your comprehension should be far higher. but there’s no reason you need to do this any time soon. hopefully, with some books, you will feel compelled to give a more thorough reading right away. if you don’t, that’s fine and now you know. move on to another book.

This sounds about right. The whole great man angle is excessively liberal, and it confused the shit outta me why V only has one protege instead of as many as possible. It's not a good demonstration of actual revolution or even anarchy specifically, so meh, but even understanding the radlib context it's really bizarre for the revolution to hinge on one (wo)man and a student. It makes some sense character-wise for V to be like that but why write the character that way? Especially since V is thematically supposed to represent the resistance that's inherently produced by tyranny. This lends itself to a group dynamic, but that's only referenced in the movie with everyone wearing the masks at the end.

The movie actually have a better and realistic depiction of a mass movement against fascism than the comic. Because even libs are still more successful in that than anarchists especially the pre-20th century ones that Moore tried to emulate.
>>12305
True that. All you need to know about how much of a fake anarchist Moore was at the time is his pitch for DC’s Twilight of the Superheroes. Which can be found here:
https://ia801906.us.archive.org/28/items/TwilightOfTheSuperheroes/TwilightOfTheSuperheroes.pdf
He might be much better now, but back then he was Stan Lee level of scumbagery. Which hilariously enough the same thing that made Moore hate his biggest fanboy Grant Morrison. He did became a much better person after getting fucked over by corporate but that’s decades later.

Posting again from GET because it seems like that board is mostly consumed by the /leftytrash/ general. Wanted to start up a Bunkerchan movie nights thread. I'm thinking tomorrow evening I'm going to stream Reds on cytube to kick off some regular movie nights. Anybody can do the stream of course, nothing it stopping you, but I figured in the future people can suggest some movies or just announce their stream and people can come in. I might stream Reds later tonight, but aiming for tomorrow just because I've got a family thing I need to go to.

Next movie after Reds, I was thinking maybe a labor documentary. There are a couple out there following strikes and shit like that, could be fun.

Man I'll post it or something I dunno. I know this is pretty poorly planned but it's because I was just waffling on what day I wanted to do it since I'm busy tonight. I'm going to do it tomorrow around 8pm est. But like I said if anyone wants to commandeer the resurrection of movie night for their own streams have at it, pick a movie and post a link to a cytube stream.

>>12153

That does look pretty good! There is also a criterion collection movie called Harlan County, USA that is about a relatively large coal strike in the 70s. I'm not sure if I can stream it directly from the browser, me and some friends share a criterion account. I know some other services have ways of detecting if you are recording your screen and will block it with a black box. It looks like that particular documentary is on YouTube too though so I guess it doesn't matter.
