I didn't see many skateboarders when I was in Japan, unlike in the US. I used to live in Southern California and saw vastly more skateboarders there.

I never got into it though, and I suspect it's not as popular as it used to be. Honestly, I never had a good place to do it because it was too hilly, and then I lived somewhere where the sidewalks were too close to busy streets to do it safely, and then the cities started banning skateboarding everywhere to prevent people from grinding the curbs and damaging them.

I had a great Tony Hawk skateboard, but I never learned to balance well, and now I'm of an age that it becomes dumb to even learn because the older you get the more likely falling will break bones that won't repair.

There's a neighborhood in Tokyo which is very american. I forget the name. You can find a lot of american vintage clothing shops, very cool. There's also a small area where people skate.

My city is un-skateable, so you have to go to skateparks or specific parks to see people skate. In the US depends where you are, some cities are very skate friendly, others aren't. LA, SF are very skate friendly.

Oh I've been to that neighborhood, but it's extremely small, about one street long when I was there and as as ugly as a street in New York. Japan town in Los Angeles or San Francisco is bigger than that "american neighborhood." Both are 3 blocks long at least.

>My city is un-skateable, so you have to go to skateparks or specific parks to see people skate.


One of the cities I briefly lived in was Lake Forest, CA. They have a large skatepark there which was sponsored by VANS, and lots of people wore VANS shoes in the 90s and 00s even if they weren't skateboarders, because that city is the headquarters of VANS. I didn't live there long enough to learn it though at least that city is flat. I feel like I'd have been drawn into skateboarding if I had lived there. I remember skateshops and places that sold skateboards all over the malls when I was growing up around there.

Honestly though, I think I'd rather have my future kids get into another sport. At least with surfing kids pick up that cool dude accent more and a better appreciation for nature and the tropics.

Skateboarding is reviving again due to COVID. Just last week my homie who works at a skateshop, sold one of the last few boards that are in high demand. This isn't a random occurrence either, it's obviously due to the supply chain being backed up.


there was a point in time I wasn't feeling skateboarding, due to my depression , alcoholism , and social media causing it to become saturated and uninspiring. I manage to get out of that rut by keeping my drinking on check, eating healthier foods, getting a new hobby(boxing), taking shrooms and just deleting my instagram. Since then, my rate of progression started to pick up again and my passion for it grew stronger.

Despite the shitshow we're in rn, skateboarding is one of the few things that keeps my mind at ease.

This is the loser inside talking. Everyone has interests, so lean into them. Everyone can figure out a carreer path and at least attempt to stick to it. If you aren't doing this, then you're just a lazy asshole. Being a socialist doesn't mean you get to stop living in capitalism. Is it a fucked up system? Yes, but you need to make the attempt. You're always going to be a loser if your main plan is to wait for socialism to fix everything. Protip: That shit ain't happening any time soon.
So work on yourself and go for what you can. You don't have to make a lot of money, just don't work at McDs for the rest of your life because you didn't want to think about it.

At least you get a fresh start and plenty of opportunities to interact with your peers.
I didn't usually hang out with classmates outside class or school activities at my high school (I was kind of a newcomer) but at least I could talk and have fun with them. It's probably because of how management treats their employees but my workplace is full of fascist envious burnouts who just want people around them to fail like they did, and for whom any oportunity is good to spew their hateful nonsense.

Believe it or not, self-improvement shit actually has something to it. I'm an avid reader of this material, and though I know it isn't a solution to a deeper problem, I don't post on bunkerchan about how nothing can ever possibly get better.
This is like incels complaining about showering and going to the gym when they don't shower or go to the gym to begin with. Yeah, it won't fix every issue, but start there.

This Soviet TV series is probably the best TV show ever made. It is pure кино and deeply anti-fascist, anti-imperialist, and anti-USA. It's about a Soviet spy sabotaging peace talks between the OSS and Himmler (to allow the USA and Nazi Germany to team up on the USSR). It was made at the request of the head of the KGB. The tension and drama in this show is outstanding!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WZhgXs_iFRs&list=PLHiAMOiVIvsD2u8g0RLwvdRScEe9yiUr5&index=2&t=0s

Quote from the Soviet film "The Great Citizen" (1937):
"Oh, twenty years after a GOOD WAR, get out and take a look at the Soviet Union - composed of lets say thirty or forty republics."

On January 1, 1937 as part of the so-called USSR there were only 11 republics, implying that that USSR has planned to annex at least 20 European states during WW2. Communist propaganda also portrayed total war as a noble fight for internationalism.

After the war the propaganda has drastically changed, now claiming that USSR is the "Bastion of Peace" (СССР оплот МИРА). But there is a catch, since in Russian language both "peace" and "world" have the same word "mir" (МИР). So when a Russian says "we need mir", he can mean botch "we need peace" and "we need the whole world".

The Soviet movie itself:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iXQo1o4RrpI

Внешнеполитическая пропаганда ХХ века исключительно пацифична. У всех. У СССР, США, 3 Рейха. Советская пропаганда, например, строилась над "вершковом пацифизме". Суть:

Пусть помнит враг, укрывшийся в засаде:
Мы начеку, мы за врагом следим.

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.

So is Senegal an "M-L" country in the same sense that Mozambique and Angola are? (i.e. totally revisionist and authoritarian Capitalists like most African countries anyway)
Being that they're actually willing to do token things like work with Based Koreans.

Anyway, I think the statue is a fine piece of socialist realism, but you shouldn't be building pretty statues when your country suffers from severe underdevelopment and wealth inequality.
Out of 189 indexed countries, Senegal ranks 166 for human development thus putting it in the lowest tier.
IMF colonial horseshit of course keeps them down in many ways, but leadership that builds a nice fucking statue (that I'm sure won't be maintained) over literally anything else is shooting yourself in the foot.

Despite being very click-bait brutalism the spomenik monuments to commemorate victims of fascism are legit siq. They were mostly locally commissioned from living yugoslavian/baltic artists and I think did a good job in reimagining what a "war monument" looks like but still being relatable and striking.

So many classical/ western culture concern-trolls forget that there are a lot of "classic" structures/ architecture that are just nostalgic fakes - confederate statues, neo-classical architecture, entire "medieval" towns built for the Worlds Fair etc

Before anyone says it
Yes
Obviously most horror films from the 80s were shit, as with most movies in any decade

However, I do have to say that the 80s seem like the horror decade, the decade that set most of the new trends for horror and introduced the most classics, while, IMO the 2010s were the second best decade for horror, they're still far-outstripped by the 80s, why?

>Forced Entry is a 1973 adult horror film written and directed by Shaun Costello under the pseudonym Helmuth Richler. It stars Harry Reems (credited as Tim Long) as an unnamed and psychotic Vietnam War veteran who sexually assaults and kills women who stop at the filling station where he works as an attendant. Called "one of the most disturbing and unpleasant porn features ever made," the film utilizes actual footage of the war, predominantly in the rape and murder sequences.[1]
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Forced_Entry_(1973_film)
>Noting the film is "the first film to show a disturbed war vet coming home from Vietnam," Ed Demko calls the film "one of the more important and relevant films to ever come out of that age of pornography. It’s a film that really transcends the time that it was made and might even be more important now than the age it was made. Sure there’s a ton of nasty sexual activity in the film but the subject matter and what the movie is actually saying goes way beyond that."[4]
>In "Forced Entry: Serial Killer Pornography as Patriarchical Paradox", scholar Robert Cettl assesses the film's role as pivotal in the history of American serial killer films and discusses its subversion of American patriarchy "by highlighting a paradox in relation to hegemonic masculinity" and how the director turns pornography "into self-conscious political discourse", arguing the film critiques patriarchical reaction to second-wave feminism (represented by the independently-living female victims) as grounded in war-mongering (rape-murder scenes interspersed with footage from the Vietnam War) and ultimately doomed to self-implosion (the killer's suicide).[5]

Does anyone know of any good film podcasts that aren't just people talking about the big, new, English language releases and the same old, 80s, cult b-movies? I want something that has a bit more variety with some foreign films and films from the 60s and earlier.
