>No amount of explicit nudity makes the new comics live up to the old ones.
>muh male gaze
Lame ass lib nonsense.

>In the original the naughtiness is incidental to the character doing what she wants, for herself.

The guy that created Jucika was horny as fuck, Jucika was a published caricature strip however, so that means that nudity and sexuality were toned down to go through censors.

I agree that not all of the new ones are tasteful, but there's been a few good ones, and the style is very similar, which is harder to replicate than people think.

What are your thoughts on the Joker movie? Could it be considered somehow leftist?
104 posts and 24 image replies omitted. Click reply to view.


I don’t think it’s leftist and it was more of a liberals attempt to demonstrate the very bad awful mayhem that could result from a “society” in the abstract that turns its back on certain undesirables or social outcasts. That’s bad because it stops capitalism from running smoothly and riles up the masses. With the absence of Batman this subtext about maintaining order under capitalism isn’t quite as apparent but it’s still there because Joker inadvertently causes the death of Bruce Waynes parents. Of course, from a leftist perspective you could look at all the chaos of heightened protests that result in rioting at the end as not necessarily a bad thing, but the subtext is pretty obviously trying to point you in a different direction. You’re supposed to fear the unattended consequences of a small boys wealthy parents dying as a result of all these events. This also foreshadows Batman who is symbolically a paragon of the forces attempting to maintain order under capitalism.

While it can be interpreted in this way, I don't think that was the intent at all. It's not communist or something, but the main idea is essentially humanitarian and leftist in a more root sense than the superficiality of liberalism. It depicts the rich as entitled stuffy assholes which look down over the people like one would look at insects. It depicts common people as ignorant, full of infighting and misery in their situations, that at every level people in this capitalist society are thorny and unpleasant to others unless they have a motive otherwise. We follow the main character as a way to see this and we see a man slowly go insane and stop playing by the rules, and in doing so he resonated with people and gained their attention and sympathy.

Heath Ledger's Joker is (for good reason) considered one of the best Joker depictions in live action. What people don't know or have forgotten is that a large portion of the Dark Knight films' aesthetics are taken from the fantastic 90s film, The Crow.

Chris Nolan stated that the look and cadence for Joker were based on Brandon Lee's performance and role. The crow symbol being painted on walls and the burning gas Crow symbol was also used for the burning Batman logo in those same films. Ghost Rider and DareDevil also used this idea (pic 2 rel). Moreover the dark humor and violence is also similar, with the Crow taking hits intentionally as did the Joker while calmly replying.

As a side note, there's also a connection to Keanu Reeves. Back in the 90s it was rumored that role of Neo was written with Brandon Lee in mind, which if you look at The Crow's trenchcoat you can see the aesthetics of, and considering Brandon Lee's martial arts training and that Keanu hadn't really played such serious roles at the time, makes sense. Lee's stunt-double and friend, Chad Stahelski, was also Keanu's stunt-double in The Matrix, and later went on to Co-direct Keanu's other hit performance, John Wick.

The Crow in general had huge influence on films after itself despite being rather obscure itself, even in more tragic areas, as Brandon Lee's death due to the gun mishap lead to a lot of changes made in filming as a result. Big time safety precautions were put into law that pertain to film sets. There were no incidents for a long time after this film fortunately, because of these safety changes. Unfortunately not everyone got on board and took safety for granted, like on the set of that Alec Baldwin film.


Thanks, I was just looking for it.

Journal Extract from junior researcher Dr Sandra Walker, regarding experiment PA19-B involving SCP-745.

Dr Benici, head researcher of Project Hamster Wheel, a project which aimed to utilise the anatomy of SCP-745 to generate electrical energy through kinetic harnessing.
In short, he wanted to put them on a wheel and use them as a dynamo to produce energy.

There were two instances of 745, 745-T and 745-B, affectionately named ‘Twitch’ and ‘Bolt’.
745-T was given its name for its inability to remain still, as its body would constantly be twitching and subtly vibrating while not in direct motion.
745-B was documented producing speeds well over the 180kph which 745 are known for averaging.

The issues arose when during testing 745-B collapsed, Dr Benici had them removed from the testing area and sent for medical evaluation. Not wanting to leave the heart and soul of his experiment he left me to look after 745-T to prevent them from succumbing to harm as well.

While in my care 745-T was safe and largely calm. Instances of 745 are known for developing separation anxiety when they are removed from the company of their respective partner.
One cure to this anxiety is to have a familiar presence or entity keep them occupied until they are reunited. So, I sat with 745-T within the experimentation room to keep them company.

Despite being an arm’s reach from 745-T, I could feel the vibrations in the air and hear the faint hum of the vibration. Curiosity got the better of me, as it always does. I reached over and laid my hand on 745-T’s body and even through my gloves, I could still feel the strong vibration.

Meth. I just spent 2 weeks binging and depleted my neurotransmitters, it has no effect whatsoever anymore. Break time

What stimulants would you say are best for stimfapping besides meth? Bonus points for shorter effect (but not so short its a waste of money)


Iono, adderal I guess. Maybe try acid. It can be pretty stimulating but it's not the same thing at all.

<Confirming the age of ancient footprints

>For their follow-up study, the researchers focused on radiocarbon dating of conifer pollen, because it comes from a terrestrial plant and avoids the issues that can arise when dating aquatic plants such as Ruppia, according to the news release.

>The scientists were able to isolate some 75,000 grains of pollen, collected from the exact same layers as the original seeds, for each sample. Thousands of grains are required to achieve the mass necessary for a single radiocarbon measurement. The pollen age matched that found for the seeds.

>The team also used a dating technique known as optically stimulated luminescence, which determines the last time quartz grains in the fossil sediment were exposed to sunlight. This method suggested that the quartz had a minimum age of 21,500 years.

It's a known fact that humans could build structures even before neolith. In fact in the last thread you even tryed to deny that because your argument was "how could they suddenly learn how to build stuff without some aliens or white people teaching them" and everybody and their mother were saying that hunter-gatherers knew how to build. You are one stupid motherfucker.

What it doesn't prove is existence of some super advanced civilization back then.

I've seen only a few other threads about horror on here and they seemed too specific, so I thought I'd make a broader one.

How do you feel about the current state of horror media? To me it seems at it's always been in a way; a mixed bag. However I feel like I've noticed this trend and, correct me if you think I'm wrong, a lot of more successful recent horror seems to be more creator-driven than in the past.

This is natural I think, as the internet has opened a lot of opportunities for more unique visions and riskier decisions that large studios would otherwise reject.

In a strange sort of symbiosis, though, these large studios attempt to acquire these successful creators and even properties for themselves; see the phenomenon of Slenderman for example. Once an entirely community made, solely internet creation has gotten several of his own movies, and has by and large become an 'artifact' of sorts of 2010's-era web. Studios cannibalize these unique properties and, once they've made some modicum of a profit, utterly destroy the integrity of them, leaving communities to look for the next big thing in horror.

With that aside, feel free to discuss almost literally anything horror related here; movies, books, ARGs, games, creepypasta (the rare good kind, if you can find any).

Thoughts on Avatar? It's probably the most explicitly anti American movie of the decade and has strong anti imperial and anti capitalist themes.

Will it change anything?

I've seen people try to criticize the Avatar movies for supposedly engaging in the "noble savage" trope, but the Na'vi both aren't supposed to be any real world indigenous group, but a race of aliens from a different solar system, and are really so far removed from humanity they come across more as sci-fi Wood Elves* (or your local equivalent) from a fantasy setting. One can argue that elves are semi-divine beings in many depictions, because their concept comes from the myths of nature spirits, not aliens that evolved into being, however the Na'vi are the servants and favored children of a physical god. They're sentient beings and have clans, warrior-hunters etc. so they're not alien anprim hippies from a romanticized concept of Native American harmony n' peace.
Their home planet is explicitly different from Earth, whereas life on Earth is connected through our relationships to each other, life on Pandora is connected in this fashion but also by the biological ability to connect their nervous systems, and thus their thoughts and emotions directly. The culture of the Na'vi isn’t only similar to contemporary indigenous cultures, it is similar to how ALL human societies started out, even the one of you Europeans, before your people rejected the notion that life had value and nature is more than a tool to exploit. The Na'vi can’t lose their connection to their world the way humans did because of their ability to directly interface with it using those fiber-optic tails of theirs.

The film(s) borrow aesthetics from various indigenous groups, but they aren't a direct representation of any of them. Not even an idealized one. The closest is the teal water Na'vi adhering to the whole native Hawaiian "Aloha" pacifism thing, but that's where it ends. There was a deleted scene from the first movie that's obviously an alien version of an Ayahuasca trip.**

What's more, the whole "noble savage" thing usually promotes the idea that the main thing distinguishing the "noble savages" is their lifestyle and culture. If you or I were kidnapped as a child and raised in a noble savage tribe, we would be come like them with their manly virtues or closeness and respect for nature or whatever good qualities is being attributed to them that civilization supposedly lacks because of decadence, luxury, artifice, pollution and whatnot.***

The primary thing making the Na'vi the way they are is their biology. It doesn't matter how in-tune with nature a humaPost too long. Click here to view the full text.


>2 already moves away from that kind of characterization though because the plot involves the water tribe being somewhat blind to the effects the humans are having on the ocean and having taboos/superstitions that cause unnecessary conflict.
Yeah it's kind of weird that 2 has been criticized for the water tribe being kind of silly and irrational with their beliefs, but that's just how ideology works. It's less obvious but the forest tribe has a similar problem at first with not being equipped to respond to the human invaders until the seriousness of the threat is made clearer. And of course one of the main points of the series is how irrational the humans' political economy is.

On the one hand people complain about noble savage tropes and on the other they start doing the Cinema Sins treatment whenever they start noticing the nuance.


Interesting thing that I noticed as an aside is that the Water Tribe is clearly Maori inspired, while the Jungle tribe has clear Amazon tribe inspirations
