&ltthe Art Deco enthusiast, like the devotee of Expressionism, is by that interest making a statement about the nature of his or her soul. He or she is impatient with surface images, bored with frippery, and drawn by the weird and the outré. Art Deco portrays the human being as one secretly wishes to be: a kind of _Metropolis_ robot[rix] with a dispassionate, cool, and cruel disposition. Art Deco is never warm, cozy, reassuring; it is glacial and impersonal. Those fearful of, dissatisfied with, or contemptuous of human emotions seek in Art Deco a mirror which will show them - and reinforce in them - only the non-human aspects of their souls.

It is bourgeois. But is it any good? That's another question. the better question depends on whether you're looking at it from the viewpoint of hobbyist, or from that of a town planner, in my view.


The quintessential art deco skyscraper.


No I do not believe so. Art Deco was an aesthetic exploited by the bourgeoisie but I do not believe it arose from that, as it impacted architecture and urban planning in ways that ignored class divides, although obviously the most grandiose examples belonged to the rich, since they had more money to throw away for vanity projects and additions.


Having studied Corbusier as part of my Urban Planning research, this article has quite a few inaccuracies, gonna talk about it sometime.

Thanks, probably won't continue. I was excited to write it but I've never done anything like it before.

I was going to call the story 'The Death Of John Smith'. It was vaguely inspired by The Madness Of Hercules.

The plot was going to revolve around a husband's murder of his wife, split into two narratives.

The first narrative would be his release from prison after serving a life sentence and his struggle thereafter. I was going to send him through the stages of grief, and eventually he would suffer a psychotic break as he experiences hallucinations of his dead wife speaking to him. The story would end with him being consigned to a psychiatric ward.

The second narrative was going to be the lead up to the murder. I was going to interweave the narratives so that they ran parallel.

I had so many ideas for this. It was going to be about the failure of his struggle to forge an identity seperate from that of a murderer.

The next chapter was going to be about a barbacue in his family home with his wife and daughters, as well as their friends and his mother. The chapter was going to end with him pouring his cup of red wine on a myrtle plant in his backgarden, transfixed with his anger at his wife and invasive paranoid thoughts of her cheating on him. I was going to describe the wine mixing with the soil and appearing as though it were blood (in a vague allusion to a part in the Aeneid).

Keep writing. Also if you're concerned about how something sounds, try reading it out loud or having someone else do it for you.


Dont get discouraged anon, its the first thing you ever written, of course its going to suck, nobody ever made a masterpiece on their first attempt.

As I reiterated in >>>/alt_archive/5937 Cameron's recent ventures have given me little faith in him. The same applies to Ridley Scott with his abysmal Alien Covenant and how he essentially killed Neill Blomkamp's Alien 5 attempt by basically pressuring the studio to prioritize his shoddy Prometheus trilogy, dooming a promising sequel that offered an alternate Alien 3 scenario. I bring this up because Alien Romulus is coming out soon and while the teaser doesn't tell me enough about it's quality, the fact that BOTH Ridley Scott and James Cameron not only publicly supported the film (giving me Terminator Genysis/Dark Fate vibes) but also gave input/criticism/advice (i.e. pressure a la Dark Fate) to Director Fede Álvarez, who stated:
>"It’s also fascinating because [Cameron and Scott’s] notes and comments are completely different. (Laughs.) They wouldn’t repeat a note. Whatever Ridley said, Cameron said something different."
Although innocuous in a vaccuum considering the similarities to behind-the-scenes regarding the Alien and Terminator franchises, it makes me wary.

However it's not all doom and gloom. The trailer's atmosphere reminded me of the recent Dark Descent video-game which really embraced the grimdark aspect of xenomorphs. I only hope they don't do shitty, dark lighting, as often happens nowadays, a la AvP: Requiem . Álvarez seems to be genuine about his appreciation for the franchise, though simply saying such things isn't much with how often that claim is used.

The cast has potential although they're a little too young IMO, but we'll see, maybe they're just the survivors while the adults die, or some adult characters may feature as secondary roles.
Isabela Merced is a wonderful actress, playing one of the leading roles, so I have hopes for her. Amara Namani wasn't great in her break-out film Pacific Rim: Uprising, but she wasn't terrible either, I think it was just bad directing that undercut her, so I think she might pull it off, especially with that Ripley visual reference in the trailer. Tommy Collins is also a pretty good actor, being quite real in the roles I've seen.

The plot summary so far is promising, reminiPost too long. Click here to view the full text.


Just saw the teaser, not hopeful. CGI face huggers chasing people around, and it looks basically like a remake of the original. I love that film, and other works that use the Alien license, but I don't reckon this will stand out from any other monster-in-space film. Why do we need it? It's like that The Thing prequel that nobody remembers.

>it looks basically like a remake of the original.
I don't think so, it's just a similar aesthetic, which makes sense given what its about.
>CGI facefuggers
Yeah that is pretty lame NGL.
>I don't reckon this will stand out from any other monster-in-space film… Why do we need it?
Alien and Aliens is a pretty damn high bar tbh, I'd just appreciate a good movie in the same verse. The older films and media are fun, but something new (that isn't schlock like Prey or Covenant) would be nice.
>It's like that The Thing prequel that nobody remembers
I 'member… it wasn[t that great but I thought the prequel was pretty decent for something made essentially by fans with a budget. Although if you're looking for a similar movie to The Thing, try Harbinger Down (2015).

Honestly I'm just sad we'll never see Blomkamp's ideas realized


Really not a fan of the second film, but I loved the first one. The scene where the protagonist drops to his knees at the ruined Statue of Liberty was perfect.


They should just adapt the post Aliens comic books where Hicks, Newt, and Ripley team up to kill the Queen Mother and the Earth gets wrecked by mind controlled xenomorph cultists.

Even though the fandom is pretty dead. I wanted to see what a brony thread on here would look like since I’m a newbie

What does /leftypol/ think about this franchise and the online subculture it spawned? I feel like now that the little girls who made up the target audience are young adults I’ve been seeing more zoomers tell stories about how they were “traumatized” by the adult fandom and it’s becoming more in vogue to decry the whole “brony” phenomenon as “problematic”.

On the other hand though what’s the sociological explanation for millions of grown men becoming obsessed with a little girls cartoon in spite of hegemonic Western gender norms? I’ve read a lot of conflicting theories from academics and culture critics regarding this. Is it autism? Post-Irony? Or is there something about it that just makes it genuinely appealing?

Old thread (v1): https://leftypol.org/hobby/res/7136.html

The practice and principles of Permaculture are one of the most important tools for not only creating a sustainable socialism, but also for repairing the damage done to the global ecosystem by capitalism, and lessening your individual reliance on the current capitalist system.Permacultural practice and socialism are two very powerful allies, and learning about permaculture should be necessity for modern socialists and communists.

wdym? also yeah I'll try to keep the thread posted on my land use shenanigans


Just that these things can take a while, and there's lots of talk about how about how we're hemorrhaging users. It'll probably be here for years to come, though.
I look forward to hearing about your endeavours!


Got my first compost pile up to 50C. Feels good anons. Won't use this pile in my veggies, but hopefully will make 70C with the next pile


naisu. I've finally had luck with compost for the first time and I think the difference was not using the black plastic container and instead just piling it up on the ground. I'm guessing the container in full sun got too hot and dried things out whereas the pile is in the shade most of the time. The container also made it pretty much impossible to flip/mix it up occasionally but that alone shouldn't have prevented it from breaking down but rather would just slow things down (hot vs cold compost). Still didn't make enough to replace imports but it's nice to get some use out of grass clippings and kitchen scraps.
Speaking of compost the county gave everyone a green bin for free and collects organics biweekly. On the one hand it's nice for those people that don't garden but it goes to show how valuable your biomass is and Ill be damned if Im going to give it away just to have the city sell it back to me. That bin will be collecting dust in the garage


Today I can finally contribute to this thread in more ways than just treating it like a generic gardening blog as this weekend I'll be making liquid fertilizer out of materials sourced entirely from my property which I think fits the permaculture theme. I'll say in advance that I'm still an utter novice so don't take this poor man's effort post too seriously and I'll happily be corrected on anything but for the sake of reviving this somewhat dead thread for the new season, here's the post:
It was in the previous thread way back in 2022 that I told yall that I purchased Bocking 14 Comfrey root cuttings and they are just now finally producing enough foliage that I feel comfortable harvesting it, for as the saying goes, first year plants sleep, second year they creep, third year they leap.
Comfrey is a neat plant as it's a "dynamic accumulator". There seems to be some debate as to whether this is even a thing–wiki claims there's zero scientific evidence to support it–but its such an accepted notion at least in the popular permaculture sphere that I'm running with it. The claim is that these plant put down deep tap-roots that pull minerals and nutrients up from the sub soil, where it's useless for a lot of other plants, and stores it in its leaves. By either waiting for the plant to die back in the fall or manually harvesting said leaves, these resources can be returned back to the topsoil for more shallow rooted plants to enjoy. Allegedly. This combined with the plants vigorous growing habits, allowing it to be harvested multiple times per season, means it's an extremely handy plant to have in the garden. It's potential uses are many, from companion planting to a source of nutritious biomass for mulch, composting or making liquid fertilizer. It's deep and thick tap-root loosens up the soil removing the need to commit the extremely destructive task of tilling the earth, at least in it's immediate vicinity, and it's flowers are an excellent source of pollen and nectar for our pollinator friends. Additionally, this particular cultivar of comfrey is sterile as I want to at least minimize the potential of introducing non-natives to the wider area. It can only spread through root cuttings.
Speaking of the plants propensity to grow, it's currently still too early to do much and the trees are only just putting out their leaves yet the comfrey is in some cases several feet tall. Without having any experience with harvesting it to inform my spPost too long. Click here to view the full text.


This isn't about the vilification of real-life revolutionaries or even characters that were from the start had any sort political context, but characters who were always meant as simple villains. For me the most obvious case is with the Decepticons and their leader Megatron. they were a toy series turned into an animated show where they were just evil for the sake of evil. It was good robots who would turn into fire trucks, ambulances, and taxis versus evil robots who turned into fighter jets and tanks. Sometime around the late 2000s, there was both a fandom and source material change to the origins of this faction, where they changed their origin to be moderately political, making Optimus and Megatron former friends and casting Megatron as someone born in the lower classes who became a revolutionary but went "too far" and caused a 4-million-year-long war which destroyed his planet

cartoon Optimus
>freedom is the right of all sentient beings
bay optimus
>I'll rip out your optics!


I think this is why people don't like Michael Bay's Prime. It's not that he kills. It's HOW he kills.
There's a difference between Optimums shooting a Decepticon that's trying to kill you dead and punching through the Fallen’s back and out his chest, holding the spark in front of his peeled face, and then crushes it. Then he says, “I rise. You fall.” Which is such an ominous line that I have no idea what kind of cocaine Bay was on to think that was a cool hero line instead of a borderline villain one.
It’s fucking bizarre, man. The Autobots are so fucking brutal (especially in the second and third ones) that it stops being action heroes beating the shit out of treacherous villains, into a bunch of hateful soldiers committing cartel-level executions and literal war crimes on their rival faction.
There’s a fucking scene in the third movie where the Autobots first come back after being “killed.” They first shoot down a Decepticon pilot, Optimus then appears and pumps his gun saying, “we’ll kill them all,” and then the Autobots proceed to LITERALLY tear apart the downed pilot limb from limb like a bunch of goddamn crazed maniacs.


Yeah, it's to the point where you have to wonder why the US government doesn't just kill them all off because the autobots aren't really much better than the decepticons.

>I rise. You fall.

Isn't that the line he says after killing Nimoy's robot? I remember physically cringing at that part just from how cold blooded it was. It's been a minute, but weren't he and Optimus supposed to have been friends or allies or something at one point? And then he just murders him.

I guess it is a Michael Bay movie and you're supposed to shut your brain off completely and enjoy the boomy zoomies but did you have to make Optimus Prime a fucking murderer? Jesus.

started KOTOR for the first time. pretty neat


bad batch not bad. think the girl clone is force sensitive.



Meh. A billion space nazis hiding out in the middle of nowhere is boring. An actually interesting star wars reboot could have explored a superficially reformed and liberalized galactic empire in an uneasy ceasefire with the rebels.


At least in Legends, humanity was just the most useful slave-race of the prior interstellar empire (the Rakkatan Infinite Empire) who died out several millennia ago by the time of even the oldest in-lore material (like KOTOR). Even before they became space-travel capable, they were widely distributed across the galaxy. This is also why there are a lot of human-like species - distant mutants, natural or induced, from humanity. If you want to know what the Rakkata were like, they were the guys who made the Starforge which Revan uses in KOTOR, and he is using it at only a fraction of its real power.

Is there any art you like, hell even adore, but it just so happens that the person behind that art just emits hitler particles to the max. Here is my example. Hirotonfa. Really like his style. His comics aren't bad, can be funny. But there is a reason that he got rid of his likes on his bird app account. Every time on my timeline I see some rightoid's post, I just assume its one of his likes. Check the post and sure enough it is. I wish I could just mute his likes, so I can just get his art, but alas, not an option. Shame really but what can I do.

I don't know if its allowed, but this thread is open to all styles of art. I was going to attempt on the draw, but it seems its purely for original art, so decided to create the thread here

How will gamers recover from this lgbt appropriation of heretic?


Don't be disingenuous. Plenty of art is and has been made by people with varying political beliefs. This sort of inane politicization is the same reasoning the Nazis used to dismiss and justify burning and destroying the home of Tolstoy and Tchaikovsky and to consider slavs subhuman; because they were "untermensch gommies" who couldn't possibly create art because that would make them people!
