For some reason, I can't stand the Coen Brothers' stuff in general, but this one movie by them has got to be one of my favourites that I've watched so far. It has a lot of rewatch quality for me. There are so many engaging interweaving subplots and side characters within it, and overall it's a pretty good depiction of the drudgery and rejection underneath culture industry.
It still has the pitfalls of the Coens' other stuff, like intentionally unsympathetic characters and a sort of annoyingly overriding deadpan quality, but I can let those pass somehow.


>has got to be one of my favourites that I've watched so far
as in, one of my favourite movies I've watched ever


I hated this movie when I first saw it, but I’ve since known and been a part of music scenes since then and also become an even bigger Dylan fan than I was when I saw it. I def need to rewatch it.


So many fabulous and easily maintained buildings have been demolished because of short-sightedness. We shouldn't be vandals of architecture. We should preserve the Penn stations and the Russian cathedrals of the world, and not just demolish our monuments.

We should rebuild some of them as well. People don't just have utilitarian needs and need a "spiritual" or imaginative side which is opposed to efficiency but which startles you.

Most bourgeoise architecture looks objectively better on fire.
Also, you talk like a stuck up bitch.
Opinion disregarded.


>flow of spaces
Sounds like dumb shit autists would obsess over. Nah, just slap some windows on that bitch and you’re good.


Some university press or whatever needs to start commissioning new English editions of Tafuri
He's a gem


Yes it is. Robert Venturi wrote a whole book about it.


neoclassical was a reaction against baroque and rococco styles which were associated with aristocratic decadence as opposed to neoclassical which suggested republican political aspirations which is why most US government buildings are neoclassical.

For the first time in my life i have enough money to travel and see the friends i have made over the years in their home country.
While i am on my travels i would like to see some historic areas of significance for communism/socialism/anarchism. I am going to Europe and i would like to go places where i can soak in some history and perhaps learn a little bit more about the radical tradition.

What places are there of communist significance in Europe?

I have a tiny list right now because i don't even know what places to go

Marx's grave
That Tito theme park in Serbia
Exarchia in Greece
That one communist town in Spain.
Barcelona CNT shit
The paris streets rn

anything else?

Vampiric piece of shit


you're thinking of kissinger
deng enjoyed smoking and died of lung cancer


he somehow lasted until the age of 92


The Greek one sounds good, just be aware of current events when you go. And don't be that anarcho-capitalist kid ;)
If you're in USA, one of the intentional anarchist* communities there could be of interest.
(Technically they're registered as non-for-profit businesses to get religion tax avoidance. Murica!)


In Peru, had a Nasserist period plus the SP war so apart from Machu Picchu, ayahuasca and food yadayadayada you can go to:
-Ayacucho (the land of the dead -that is the name! for the wars of indepence) old colonial town.
-Cusco (and visit the Campesinos orgs HQs, they are old colonial houses anyway)
-Lima: Go to El Fronton Island to see the sea wolfs (and if you can from the distance or maybe arrive to the island and see the prison that got bomb to ashes)
—The LUM: A liberal museum about the internal conflict with funding from German orgs so you know its liberal. But it is pretty and always is on the brink of closing by the right seethe.
—The old national museum was a brutalist megaministry build during Velasco, now it was moved to the south so it would only be to appreaciate a brutalist whale building.
→ The 3 coops that survived since the agrarian reform and the neoliberal privatization. One is also a hotel too.
→ Bonus: In Trujillo, in the walls of the ruins of the palaces of Chan Chan a thousand social democrats were shot in the 30s. So you can see the ruins of a mud palace and think about how they lost their revolution too.

I wish Leftypol had it's own desuarchive.

Because now I can't even look at the original thread that this image was taken at.

>The alienation of the spectator to the profit of the contemplated object (which is the result of his own unconscious activity) is expressed in the following way: the more he contemplates the less he lives; the more he accepts recognizing himself in the dominant images of need, the less he understands his own existence and his own desires. The externality of the spectacle in relation to the active man appears in the fact that his own gestures are no longer his but those of another who represents them to him. This is why the spectator feels at home nowhere, because the spectacle is everywhere.
>Man, “the negative being who is only to the extent that he suppresses Being,” is identical to time. Man’s appropriation of his own nature is at the same time his grasp of the unfolding of the universe. “History is itself a real part of natural history, of the transformation of nature into man” (Marx). Inversely, this “natural history” has no actual existence other than through the process of human history, the only part which recaptures this historical totality, like the modern telescope whose sight captures, in time, the retreat of nebulae at the periphery of the universe. History has always existed, but not always in a historical form. The temporalization of man as effected through the mediation of a society is equivalent to a humanization of time. The unconscious movement of time manifests itself and becomes true within historical consciousness. Properly historical movement, although still hidden, begins in the slow and intangible formation of the “real nature of man,” this “nature born within human history–within the generating action of human society,” but even though that society developed a technology and a language and is already a product of its own history, it is conscious only of a perpetual present. There, all knowledge, confined within the memory of the oldest, is always carried by the living. Neither death nor procreation is grasped as a law of time. Time remains immobile, like an enclosed space. A more complex society which finally becomes conscious of time devotes itself to negating it because it sees in time not what passes, but only what returns. A static society organizes time in terms of its immediate experience of nature, on the model of cyclical time.

The admins have taken a slower care on promoting this site as some downsizing method. They won’t even create a Wikipedia page even with having resources and ability to do so for more than a year now.


You could create one yourself you know

Can anyone lead me to good resources to learn about cinematography and story telling in general?

That old black and white color film? Yeah, good point.


almost all films have a male lead


Watch Soviet silent montage films until your eyeballs turn into pulp


When is saying "kino" cringe?


A phone camera can shoot 1080p video, and that's all you need unless you're shooting like a commercial feature or something
My Pixel 6 Pro can shoot 4K at 60fps, let alone 30 or 24


The origins of trade were never rooted in politics, especially contemporary politics it was just a phenomenon that emerged from the distribution of tokens and capital where some figures wanted to hoard capital for the sake of it. the work of Garth ennis work kind of shows, at least to me that contemporary corporations and companies are still basically the same and will brainlessly serve whatever thing gives them more money and likewise don’t care that much about their customers or their perspectives to any extent that doesn’t immediately benefit profits. I guess the supers just represent how those companies treat those loyal to them, essentially disposable and meant to be hauled around until they run out of their usefulness to their companies, similar to how defence and healthcare companies do little to help veterans in NATO member states or how frequently reactionary groups turn out to blindly support corporations to their own destruction since ww1 to today

When did townhouses get replaced by detached homes, and why?
11 posts and 6 image replies omitted. Click reply to view.


Speaking personally, I've always prefered standalone buildings to townhouses. Having gaps between the buildings means you get more green space, which I think is important for a city.


>wish we had a general urban planning thread
make one then


This doesn't explain how density occurs
Land prices increase as cities expand, causing real estate developers to buy up expensive land and build upwards to compensate through rent leases or condo sales


The Toronto city council just voted to legally allow multi-family homes (multiplexes) in the 70% of the city's land that is currently only zoned for single-family residential
A multiplex is a building that contains multiple "single-family" units (as in, bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen, living area, dining area across 2 or more floors) within it

What's some hobby that I can do a little every day and feel like I am actually getting better at it? I need something in my life that actually feels like going somewhere.

"iconic set"


Frequent and intense insulin variation *can* cause resistance


Isn't that the goal? Hence the name "resistance training"?




Weight lifting. Do one exercise per day, it takes only a few minutes to go through a few sets, and each time you try to do one rep more or increase the weight.

Everything else I can think of is more qualitative, inconsistent, and depends on conditions you can't control as much. Also takes more time.


Anyone here can make decent money scamming boomer/porkies/petty bourgeois/state?
I'm interested in ways to pay rent and maybe a dinner with someone's else money

Do you use pictures of someone else's Insta/OF? I guess catfishing is pretty easy but you need some source material the coomers are not gonna find.



I just used pics from other less popular dating sites. The one thing I learned is coomerbrains are literally retarded, a lot will sign up for shit without checking anything really.

If there was a better product to grift coomerbrains with other than sham dating websites, it would make bank.


how much money can you make through that
i thought the website takes like 90%

Was Xavier a reformist cuck for wanting mutants and humans aka their oppressors to live in peace?

Did Magneto go too far by wanting to create another oppressive mutant class?

I always find incoherent that people in the Marvel Universe(s) can have hate for mutants but not for the other super-humans. I know a lot people (in the Marvel Universe(s)) hate Spider-Man as an example but they don't hate super-humans as a whole minority, even if the difference between mutants and other super-humans is only that mutants were born that way.
The mutant segragation, along with characters like the Avengers being adulated, just seems contradictory to me.
Unfortunately, future X-Men movies might become like this.


One explanation I heard is that Iron Man and Captain America are famous, but anybody could be a mutant, like your next door neighbor who could blow up the whole block right this instance. But so could the Hulk so lol idk.

I have negative feelings towards MCU getting X-Men back. For example, I don't see MCU making something like Logan. And this mutant vs superhuman public opinion hypocrisy like you said, X-Men being a different universe actually helped.


>Iron Man and Captain America are famous
They are famous because they save the world multiple times, so did the X-Men but they are infamous only because they are mutants.

>like your next door neighbor who could blow up the whole block right this instance. But so could the Hulk so lol idk.

Not only the Hulk, any non-mutant super-villains, too many to list. But still, people don't amalgam super-heroes and super-heroes when it comes to non-mutants in the Marvel Universe(s).

>I have negative feelings towards MCU getting X-Men back. For example, I don't see MCU making something like Logan

It's funny, I'm currently re-watching Logan but the Noir Edition (in black in white). But yeah, "MCU" (Disney) will never make a movie like Logan.


amalgam super-villains and super-heroes*
