maybe in burgerland. eating in restaurants, ordering take-away/delivery is still prohibitively expensive in the rest of the world. I cook every day, lunch and dinner, because I can't afford to eat out every single day, for every meal. even frozen food and ready meals are expensive. ingredients are cheap. I even bake my own bread cause for the price of a loaf I can buy 4kg of flour. got my sourdough starter in the fridge and can have delicious, freshly-baked bread in no time. I grow my own chilies and make my own sauces so I don't need to buy ketchup.

Weed and psychedelics don't do anything in low doses and moderate to high doses give me existential anxiety, like I straight up can't stop thinking about dying and not existing in 30-40 years. It's weird because otherwise I'm chill about it. Alcohol is the only thing that takes away the harsh edge of life and makes everything fuzzy and warm, but I can't get over how horrible it is for every part of the body: liver disease, distracting your immune system, bowel cancer, brain shrinkage, disrupting protein synthesis. I think min-maxing video games ruined my fucking brain; every beer I have is like "damn I coulda got a 3 plate bench by now if I didn't drink". My mind won't let me let go and just enjoy the experience of any mind altering substance, but being sober fucking sucks. Why did humans evolve to hate the default state of the brain so much?

Weird because they say shrooms do the opposite. They're using shrooms for terminal patients because it gives them peace of mind.

It worked for literally one season where they had it all properly planned out in advance. 2nd and 3rd instantly degraded into L O S T tier nonsense. It also made sense in season 1 because it fit what they were doing. Nonlinear storytelling helped cement the point about how the hosts' minds worked, experiencing a memory by reliving it and having trouble telling when in the timeline they were because they couldn't distinguish past and present (at first). Doing that as a slow reveal also worked because you went in knowing almost nothing about the setting and it helped put you in the hosts' shoes. And then keeping all the humans mysterious made sense because you were "waking up" to everything along with the hosts. But once season 1 was over it just didn't make sense. The memory scrambling thing in season 2 was completely forced. The justification for it didn't really land and it was in service of twists that were just there for the sake of having a twist. At least season 3 dialed it back a lot but it's pretty obvious at this point the writers are out of their depth.

What is good media?

is anything that isn't directly an anti capitalist allegory automatically bourgeoise trash?

Is watching "high brow" media necessarily high brow? Are you watching as an intellectual exercise. Is watching shit media and being critical of it any less of an intellectual exercise than doing the same for "high brow" media.

Is the emotive experience of some media good on its own merits, in terms of, escapism being good for the human mind?

Is escapist media part of what suppresses the proletariat?

What necessitates a positive media experience, one that is properly healthy and proletarian? To be propagandised at? The good kind of propaganda I mean.

When you watch something imbued with capitalist ideology, and you are watching, supposedly critically, is that not, an educational experience?

Is seeking idle entertainment as part of an otherwise well rounded life a negative character trait?

Debord? You should but he did not write about media.
> The empty debate on the spectacle – that is, on the activities of the world's owners – is thus organized by the spectacle itself: everything is said about the extensive means at its disposal, to ensure that nothing is said about their extensive deployment. Rather than talk of the spectacle, people often prefer to use the term 'media.' And by this they mean to describe a mere instrument, a kind of public service which with impartial 'professionalism' would facilitate the new wealth of mass communication through mass media [English in original] – a form of communication which has at last attained a unilateral purity, whereby decisions already taken are presented for peaceful admiration. For what is communicated are orders; and with great harmony, those who give them are also those who tell us what they think of them.
> The power of the spectacle, which is so fundamentally unitary, a centralizer by the very weight of things, and entirely despotic in spirit, frequently rails at seeing the constitution under its rule of a politics-spectacle, a justice-spectacle, a medicine-spectacle and all the other similarly surprising examples of "mediatic excess." Thus the spectacle would be nothing other than the excesses of the mediatic,[5] whose nature, unquestionably good since it facilitates communication, is sometimes driven to extremes. Often enough society's bosses declare themselves ill-served by their media employees: more often they blame the plebian spectators for the common, almost bestial manner in which they indulge in mediatic pleasures. A virtually infinite number of supposed mediatic differences thus serve to dissimulate what is, on the contrary, the result of a spectacular convergence, pursued with remarkable tenacity. Just as the logic of the commodity reigns over capitalists' competing ambitions, or the logic of war always dominates the frequent modifications in weaponry, so the harsh logic of the spectacle controls the abundant diversity of mediatic extravagances.
