This book is from the creator of Youjo Senki about trying to keep Yugoslavia together. I know Yugoslavia isn't really socialist but from the point of view of the author I feel it is and wonder how he chose to write about it considering the popularity of his other work among the right. Would be cool if someone translated it (I could rip the book for them if they are unable).

Anyway, general socialist fiction thread!

It sacrifices content for form, it's cool that every panel looks like an expressionist painting but they crammed the 360+ pages of story in the original into like 50 in the remake (understandable since the publication got cancelled due to pissing off the government and the writer being kidnapped not long after) IMO you should only read it if you really liked the original and want to see an alternate take on it.

Ok, this was pretty cool. Some parts were questionable, like seemingly endless supply of wholecloth rubber and scuba masks on this guy's attic, but I've got a lot more invested reading this than most media I've consumed recently.

I know this is a long shot but on a stream from a while ago now Haz was talking about some Hungarian socialist realism novel I can’t remember the name of anymore that sounded interesting. Does anyone remember what it was called?

I started an internet radio station. You can listen to it if you want.

radio stream: http://proles.win:8000/radio.ogg

You can copy the link into a music player, or if you're on linux just do `mpv http://proles.win:8000/radio.ogg'

If you want to stream your own show (talking, music, whatever you want), it's very easy to do. I give you a an address to connect to, username and password, and then you use some software to stream, I like using Mixxx
>https://mixxx.org/
but you can use a web client, too.
>https://webcast.github.io/webcaster/
For a full list of software that should work check: https://icecast.org/apps/

Right now it's playing through some punk, rock, metal, ska, psychedelic rock, but as I make more playlists, the variety will change too. Right now Sundays are gonna be Reggae Sundays, playing reggae, dub and ska. If anyone would like to help manage the station and make playlists, upload music, manage the schedule, that is cool too. I'm easy going as long as good music plays. :)

Since it plays pirated music, I'd rather not publicly advertise it. I checked that list and most of the stations seem to be internet versions of licensed radio stations.

You can put "http://proles.win:8000/radio.ogg" into VLC or any player that can stream from the internet and listen to it that way.

Board for music discussoon: https://board.prolsphere.one/rad/

There has been few updates lately, but new music is being added to the radio. There will be weekly news headlines/excerpts being broadcast every week. I'm talking to a few anons about having shows. Daily schedules are slowly shaping up. There will be radio dramas playing in the evenings, just trying to figure out time slots to satisfy both the EU and NA time zones.

Oh yeah, and if you hear a song you hate, ask to have it removed. Conversely, if you love a song, then you can ask for more like it. And as always, anyone who wishes to play with the playlist and add and remove songs let me know and you can be added as a station admin.

I like IRC. It's for chatting, I'm there when I'm at the PC. I was hoping people would create channels and do what they want. There's no services, but if you create a channel you can register it and there's basic chan ops.

Strange, because that’s what most communist writers have supported as the best solution. Would you call Marx and idealist? Because at his time revolutions were happening left and right in Europe, thanks to the terrible working conditions of late 19th century Europe.

 No.14498

>>14495
Obviously it's the best solution, but it's not the most realistic - or likely to occur - solution. Hence idealist.
We are 200 years after Marx's birth, thinking exactly as he did sounds short-sighted and dishonest.
There is no worldwide appetite for revolution. How can conditions change to spark the revolution - we are in a 3rd global recession in just over 20 years, and in a pandemic. If there is no successful revolution in eve one country now, how will it happen worldwide?

This thread is not for dumping art, but feel free to use it to supplement your points.
How do you believe a different political ideology, such as forms of socialism, may affect art nowadays?

For example, George Lucas discusses the artistic limitations of the commerce-driven film making industry of America, describing it as less free than the anti-anti-government limitations of the Soviet film industry: >>>/leftypol/40379

Some art industries, like the US televised animation industry, have moved away from more high-effort styles, settling into the flat digital style we see universally now (contrasted not only with traditional cel and stop-motion styles on the pre-2000s, but also with early 2000s shows with hand-painted backgrounds and more fluid animation) as it approaches the similar generic industrial feel of the music industry.
Is there reason to believe a socialist, communist or anti-capitalist society would avoid most of the quality-of-life pitfalls of the industrialization of art?

On the other hand, I have read accusations that communism such as that of some Soviet eras encouraged arts that emphasized realism, or minimalism and practicality, at the expense of culture and soul (an obvious example may be brutalist architecture, and the iconic geometric style seen in many propaganda posters)

I think OP was just presenting that as an accusation by other people.

I didn't properly say what I meant; I'm actually a fan of brutalism done well (and also that iconic propaganda poster style) but I'm talking about the accusations. You know those cherry-picked run-down cookie-cutter economic blocks of apartments that people like to put in anti-leftist propaganda? Typing "soulless" next to "brutalism" gives no shortage of discussion, despite how beautiful the style can be.

I think most people don't give a shit if their house is "ugly and plain" as long as it's sturdy and a decent place to live.
Any other architectural style can be just as "soulless and cultureless" as capitalists claim brutalism is, and hey, some people just like simpler things and styles while, to them, fancier buildings may look disgusting.
(These are some of my thoughts, extremely simplified because I'm sleepy.)

I personally agree fully; I'd happily live in an ugly or plain house so long as I can decorate the inside to my taste. I was raised around a lot of people who cared about how other people's houses looked though, really entitled bourg shit.

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.

>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?
