Would anyone be interested in a group stream of some Soviet era red westerns such as "At Home Among Strangers" ( Свой среди чужих, чужой среди своих; Svoy sredi chuzhikh, chuzhoy sredi svoikh)? I am also up for streaming other films if anyone has any suggestions

I'd love that but I'll probably be busy, depends on the day and times, what are your projected hours/days?

Отец Солдата (Soldier's Father) is a must-see.

yeah aftermath wasn't too bad as its own series, i think most people just dislike it as a replacement for the old EU's imperial collapse where there was rampant warlordism for years. between that and Alphabet Squadron the sequel era has a good deal of surprisingly good literature surrounding it, considering the fairly middling response to the trilogy itself.

I feel empty in life and want to gain some hobbies.

I practice climbing, I read and write but I mostly shitpost or doomscroll on the internet.

Do you know some inexpensive hobbies for a city dweller ?

Contrary to popular belief, photography is actually pretty cheap. If you just want to learn the craft, you can make sharp 8x10, even 11x14 prints with a smartphone camera. To take things seriously, you can get a really solid used DSLR setup with a "pro zoom" for under $500. Photography only gets expensive if 1) you're a total gearhead that pays thousands for equipment that will only be appreciated in giant wall prints, or 2) you shoot film (hip right now but crazy expensive per roll)

Playing a ball centered sport such as Soccer or Basketball is practically free outside of buying a ball and getting shoes.

>I read and write but I mostly shitpost or doomscroll on the internet.

Depending on how you shitpost and doomscroll, why not try coming up with intricate internet-based writings, for example think creepypastas but steps above. You can also try coming up with a fictional world. You don't have to write a book or anything, but you can lay multiple foundations and worldbuilding.

You can try getting into art.
>PS/Paint/Drawing/Etc
Is free with apps like Gimp but if you want stuff like Adobe it's incredible easy to crack/torrent. This can even be combined with your writing or reading. Concept art for readings you like or writings you come up with
>Music
Like music? Try making some. Multiple DAWs are once again, easily torrented/cracked. You can also get VSTs/Plugins for free as well.

 No.21015

If 100 dollars is cheap, you could always just get a tablet and download something like GIMP or Paint.net or whatever and start drawing.

They need to fucking stop with the "smarter-than-thou" onion storytelling where you already know that in the beginning nothing of what you see it coherent or the present, with constant flashbacks, time jumps, the robots "imagining" things because they can't sort out their memories, everybody being or being turned into a robot, different minds inserted into different robots, "bad guy was actually good"/"good guy was actually bad" etc.

This shit is fun when it's spun across a single movie, like Memento, but making an entire show of this is fucking annoying. If you have a season with 10 episodes you need at least some linear story telling - it worked for season one, because nobody knew what to expect, but for the other seasons people feel unmotivated watching this because everybody knows they're going to be bamboozled again in the first 7-8 episodes before shit is actually going to be revealed.

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.

Anyone else want to watch the world burn but like… semi-ironically?
Ok this gon be cringeworthy, I find myself sounding like edgy teen nihilist
I read about climate change, collapse, yada yada, and find myself upset when I read even on the most pessimistic sites (if we only count those whose authors seem to be of clear mind of course) that shit isn't gonna hit the fan til like 2050.
What I personally see coming in the future is some sort of cyber gulag, the inescapable kind. Because let's admit it's already there, you still can opt out, but then you pretty much opt out of technology as a whole (because even tho non-botnet tech is available, there are no people there, you can't talk to your family there (well that depends on the family ofc) or any irl people) and even life partially (good luck socializing with zoomers without botnet). And this is the direction the world is taking, this is the dystopia of the future. But it's like… so damn boring.
I want to have food shortages. I want to have popular unrest. I want to to have to retreat into the woods and grow shit. What the fuck man, I want life to be hard, in a way that is meaningful, I want to face actual death, not spiritual death at a 9-5 job which is BORING.
Take privacy again. The choice you're faced with is either give up completely and communicate with normies on Instagram and shit or retreat to xmpp/mastodon whatever and talk to 1,5 weirdos there. But this choice is BORING! I don't want to have to retreat to xmpp, I want to retreat to the woods and shit

eventually you'll stop being lazy and do hard shit yourself because it's meaningful and not wish hardship forced upon you. or you won't, whatever.

if you need a kick in the pants, all preparation/training you do now increases your chances of surviving decades from now.

Ladies, gentlemen, attack helicopters…what did he do wrong? Was any part of The Closer hate speech? I understand discussions like these aren't always welcome here but I'm not sure what good not talking about it's gonna do. Anyhow, I find it hard to come away from watching The Closer thinking Chapelle is anti-lgbt. I mean the fucking special ends with him declaring he's going to give a ton of money to a transgendered persons daughter. Regrettably that person committed suicide. You could argue he cares about that persons daughter more than she did. What he does do is make some poignant critiques about the lgbt movement, but it's nothing that amounts to hate speech. Anyhow, I'm just curious where people here are at on this.

Both the official client and server are proprietary and closed-source, but an open-source client Nicotine+ is available and the server/protocol have been reverse engineered and there exist published server implementations. File transfers occur between clients, the central servers only handle searches, chats, and user accounts. It's a pretty well-known network, not much to be concerned about wrt privacy.

How do I grow weed, do I need a specific kind soil, can I grow some on a normal pot that I can put by the window? How do I grind the leaf into form that can be smoked, as in is there a specific tool? How much sunlight does it need? How much watering?
