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

A large portion of Adam Sandler films, although some are straight up unwatchable.

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.

I used to use carts alot, those are like 90% THC and I actually used the sativa ones to do work because they made restless

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.

Growing good weed though? Harder, but still cheapzapatistaZapatista

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 used to read lots of Baudrillard, but now I find this kind of radical critique totally pointless and toothless. It's like complaining about the existence of air at this point.

But if anyone's still interested in this then I recommend checking out early Baudrillard:
>System of Objects
>Consumer Society
>For a critique of the political economy of the sign
