I first took up the piano when I was 13 played until I was 18. After that I didn't play for 10 years. Now I've been taking it up again and relearning. Most of all I like it. Anyone else play it? Other comments?

I've been practicing piano in a hope of eventually learning how to produce synth music. Learning how harmonics, majors work has been refreshing after spending most of my life as passive consumer of music. My current mechanical piano skills are dogshit and I still struggle to use both of my hand simultaneously but hopefully I get better over time.

What are you playing these days?

The first pic cuts the most based part of the quote
>As for the Republicans – how can one regard seriously a frightened, greedy, nostalgic huddle of tradesmen and lucky idlers who shut their eyes to history and science, steel their emotions against decent human sympathy, cling to sordid and provincial ideals exalting sheer acquisitiveness and condoning artificial hardship for the non-materially-shrewd, dwell smugly and sentimentally in a distorted dream-cosmos of outmoded phrases and principles and attitudes based on the bygone agricultural-handicraft world, and revel in (consciously or unconsciously) mendacious assumptions (such as the notion that real liberty is synonymous with the single detail of unrestricted economic license or that a rational planning of resource-distribution would contravene some vague and mystical 'American heritage'…) utterly contrary to fact and without the slightest foundation in human experience? Intellectually, the Republican idea deserves the tolerance and respect one gives to the dead.

I honestly had a really fun time with Game of Thrones even after the writing went to shit a few seasons in. The actors really were giving it all with terrible material and I respect that, plus the visual design at least kept things interesting to look at even if it was mindless fluff at best.

Also a big fan of tokusatsu even when they're bad, since the colorful action lets me turn off my brain and enjoy some cool fights.spurdoSpurdo

Hello, comrades. Yes, you, you fucking faggot. "We" (the party state) know, that you cook. Therefore we know that you have an incentive to post ITT, which is nothing else than leftyporg.org's attempt to share recipes.

Please don't be too much gay ITT, and stay on topic.

p.s.: the gunk and dirt are a feature, not a hindrance!

We start by putting like 2 different recipes, namely, "KAPUSKA" (Turkish cabbage recipe) and "SZÉKELY KÁPOSZTA" (Hungarian cabbage recipe) and mixing them into one.

INGREDIENTS:
sauerkraut (sour cabbage)
chopped onion (large)
3 chopped garlic
chopped hot salami
whole cumin (like a dozen)
whole peppers (like half a dozen)

our chef here is meme-ing the eternal anglo.
It's like the jewish thing, except for anglos and nobody should take it seriously.

our chef here is using it because the board has had a meme about how logical positivist which peaked in the anglo world has become a stumbling block to western marxists understanding of marx.

and while I'm here, there's also a meme that tries to frame the irish as "the real jews", which exemplifies how ridiculous the boogieman of the jews is. we don't have anything against the irish.

Interested in wacky experimental vegan recipes which you can only make living in specific US states? Well here is my favorite new recipe:

Comrade Granola's Vegan Jambalya (gone mexican) (gone fusion)

1 (28 ounce) can diced tomatoes with juice
14 oz (whole package) of vegan soy longanzia
(found here: https://elburrito.com/products/non-gmo-soy-longaniza/)
½ large onion, chopped
1 pasilla or even spicer dried pepper, seeded and chopped
2 stalks chopped celery
1.5 cups vegtable broth
4 cloves garlic
1 tablespoon miso paste
1 1/2 teaspoons cajun seasoning (OKAY IF YOU CAN TOLERATE HEAT THAN USE WAY MORE, THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT)
½ teaspoon dried thyme

A three way discussion about capitalist ideology in old school D&D on 4/tg/ just settled down because it was, in all honesty, threatening to become a bit of a bloated chain of replies and draw /pol/ like flies to honey. I think there's about 3 commies in that thread, which was rather unexpected.

I have to imagine at least one of those anons was a /leftypol/ack.

So is there anyone here interested in oldschool D&D?

Prior to 3e, player characters had less abilities so you had to come up with novel solutions to problems rather than looking at your character sheet for answers. Characters were also squishier so death was expected to be common. Stats were rolled 3d6 "down the line" so if you got 8 strength and wanted to play a fighter, choose another class or tough luck. Campaigns were less about RP heavy fetch quests and more about exploring / managing resources in the dungeon. Players often did the mapping. It was nice

To use vidya as an analogue, you could compare it to something like Darkest Dungeon than Skyrim. Death is part and parcel of the game, and the story is what the players make of the world rather than determined by the DM.

He was a stalinist let's player in the early 2010s. His old old channel before getting booted from youtube was JVSLetsplays or something like that. He ran a leftist forum called the JVS forums.

My love of 4x strategy games and my formative years as a leftist are thanks to him. He's not a stalinist anymore and has become well nuanced and grown as a person. Towards the end of that video he made some good observations on the state of modern global politics using hegelian dialectics.

that got me too I'll admit because solzny is bullshit as nuanced people should be aware. Yet, he comes back around to the dialectic later in the video and his channel was never hard theory anyways. (And he'll probably get better over time with community input too.) He's an aesthetic youtuber from a different era that some internet leftists grew up with 10 years ago.

Depends. I've noticed that getting high keeps me awake but when I start coming down that's when I get tired. Generally speaking, higher THC strains will keep you awake.

Growing decent, cheap weed is incredibly easy, there are a ton of small scale affordable options out there. I just grow in my backyard and in a tent inside, but I know people who tried something called spacebuckets which is scalable and can be done in an apartment.

In addition to what some already replied also read a quick summary of the difference between the two large types of cannabis: indica and sativa.
Super-summary:
· indica makes you "heavy" / "hungry" / "couch potato" / "sleepy"
· sativa makes you "alert" / "energetic" / "creative"
Most that are available on the streets are "hybrids" of these, but if you're in a jurisdiction where cannabis has been decriminalized or even legalized then it'd be relatively easy for you to find a "pure blend indica OR sativa", depending on what type of high you're interesting in.

watched ready player one with the family today.

it was okay, not as super obnoxious references as I expected. but, overall the plot was a bit miserable, basically the whole world has retreated into the virtual game due to the world being terrible late capitalist hell where 'people have given up trying to solve our problems', and the heroes struggle to inherit control of the virtual world from its creator instead of letting an evil corporation take it, at the end they just decide to control the game themselves as a group and 'the game will be closed on tuesdays and thursdays because reality is real'. also the game is like totally pay to win and addiction forming obviously, which they don't do anything about

I mean geeze they could have at least signed the game over to the community as a co-op or something, be a little more radical, especially since they rallied the community to help them at the end and a bunch of them died (permadeath item loss), then just became a monarchy.

But I guess that would require liberals to actually think democracy and popular control is desirable. The idea of 'virtuous elites' is pretty deeply entrenched. On the other hand, at least they ended debt slavery where the evil corporation would use people as gold farmers in the game, so it's pretty radical, for the late 1800s. Guess liberalism has never moved past that point so it fits.

Nostalgia will probably stop being so profitable when people feel that the future is going to be better than the past was. So, I predict not until the end of capitalism unfortunately.

I wasn't really sure where to post this but I guess this is the most appropriate board given that Mukbang is considered "entertainment" by some people. Can you lads help me out with this? I've watched this shit more than once and it's just so repulsive and off-putting that I have trouble understanding what the appeal of it is supposed to be.

I don't know why exactly, but I feel like this genre of social media content is the perfect representation of how venal and awful late-stage capitalism is. All these videos depict pointless, disgusting excess that brings neither the audience or the person eating any lasting gratification. It's hollow, nihilistic consumption that only produces misery for everyone involved. Do the people who watch Nikocado Avocado slowly die from kidney failure get some sort of sick pleasure out of watching a mentally unwell man kill himself by eating an entire Taco Bell menu everyday?

My wife enjoys them because her anxiety makes it difficult to eat. But for some reason seeing friendly, approachable people (who aren't actually present, as that would trigger her social anxiety) eat helps her brain accept food it would otherwise reject. I think it has something to do with her extreme empathy, like, "If other people are hungry, I must be hungry too."

I have no idea what the appeal for mukbangs of regular food, but I think one nostalgia critic youtuber guy actually went out of his way to search for weird shit to try and I always liked that, just because of how disgusting a lot of it the obscure crap was.
