Is he a self-insert? Like is he Orwell's way of saying "I'm sorry bros I know I am a piece of shit but they made rats nibble on my earlobes"?


Orwell didn't get coerced into working for British Intelligence he got honey-potted like the sex pest he is.

His contact/handler was a very attractive British woman whom he desperately wanted to get it on with.


wow women are truly evil

tortoise TTS is too slow and making good AI models takes time

websites like elevenlabs and fakeyou are too expensive for mass production of audio. You can get away with shorter stuff for free, however.

for TTS i still use festival scripts piped through libreoffice writer TTS plugin. I can get Linux or Windows to generate an 10 hour audiobook from a pile of text ripped out of a PDF in about a half an hour. Not bad. problem is, it sounds like shit. MP3 attached is an example of the kind of output you get from that.

I previously made this thread:


I often listen to audiobooks because I'm too busy with kids and work these days to really commit with a hard cover book. I can listen to an audiobook when changing a diaper or doing laundry or at work. I can't do that with a regular book. Problem is, not everything I want to listen to has a professionally made audiobook ready for it, and even if it does, I can't always find a good torrent. I still explore TTS pretty often because I think it has a lot of potential for helping people who don't have time to read a regular book. Also visually impaired and blind people.

Do any of you mess around with TTS? If so, what's your approach?

The little bit of Clarke and Dawe that I've seen is quite funny. I take it these guys are the Aussie equivalent of Monty Python


Bong Hit Transplant


Whats everyones take on John Oliver? Recently he's had some good takes against landlords and all. His pieces are pretty good and I watch em sometimes


His writers room is aging millennials from college humor who make “like x if it y with x” jokes forced into every other line of what equates to a capstone 10 page paper riddled with neoliberal sensibilities with an ideological underpinning that harps only on impossible soft changes and “just vote”. It’s sometimes interesting as far as content if it’s a topic I know little about, but it’s the kind of smug Reddit tier “did you know that coffee beans came from little goofy goats that ate the beans and the shepherd said ‘golly Ms molly the Goat, you shake that rump you bad bitch!’ And then all of societal progress happened.”

Are there any kinds of online communities that are exclusive to amateurs and dilettantes in a certain topic anymore? My patience is pretty thin for people that expect others to be their DDG or that pontificate on something that they clearly don't understand.


Why did you ask this on /hobby/?


I find subreddits usually fine. YouTube usually has nice videos. Where are these "expert" communities you refer to?

>gaslighting people that what they see with their eyes isn't real and they should stop critique the precious consumer products of radlibs
<N-noooo you can't enjoy something that isn't ideologically aligned with me!!!
The only gaslight here is yours.
You are reactionaries, liberal reactionaries pretending to be better than other libs.
>noticing dictatorship of bourgeoisie leading to petite bourgeois moralism and child abuse
The fuck is this supposed to mean? How is this at all relevant to the argument being made?
>Sorry child
The only people using this online in an anonymous forum are barely of age teens trying to sound smarter and older than they really are.
>Please stop protecting your autism idols from "reactionary" workers
How ass-backwards is your comprehension, to come to this completely opposite understanding of the post? The point is that Harry Potter is NOT reactionary, its vaguely liberal, because it comes from a liberal author in a liberal society, it reflects the material conditions the story is placed in. It also appeals to proletarians of said societies, since they can associate with it, and this reflects it being the largest media fandom in the Western hemisphere for 2 decades.

>liberals consume media about the bullshit political intrigue of Nancy Pelosi and then read about the bullshit political intrigue of characters in some fantasyland, but with extra racist colonial essentialism. Honestly fuck Game of Thrones and all that bullshit, I read to get away from ruling class political drama!

Excuse me?


It's not like straight up movie shit, but a similar potential is there. Some of the studies and such go back to the early 20th century. Most of it runs on the transmission of electromagnetic fields, through bio-electricity of the body and neurons (in very basic layman terms).

Neo having IRL powers makes no sense because he would need some kind of wifi, but Smith overriding somebody's mind isn't a stretch when the programs can basically do whatever they want to your brain.

Drinking alone is valid.


No alienated teen alcoholics ever got delirium tremens from weed, fuck the drink all my homies hate


I dont get any of those post drinking symptoms tbh. Just drink enough water, don't get absolutely smashed, then I feel perfectly fine the next day.

Are you asian?


I dont really drink, and getting drunk itself isnt my cup of tea, but I sure do love going from an anti-social nervous wreck to a socialite after a single sip of beer


Try out Barbican if you like the taste but not the ethanol


This was the peak of American comedy, prove me wrong
