Also some other music to not be forgotten.


This reminds me of the soundtrack to the Steve McQueen movie Bullitt, the bit just before the car chase.

Let's make a thread to discuss, review and analyze tv shows. Everybody is binging something these days.
Argue about dvd commentaries, Post your thesis on King of the Hill, Reminisce about a tv show you used to watch but don't quite remember it's title. Just about anything related to shows. Post your highscore on those Ben 10 CN flash games. Anything goes.

I gotta be honest, I still like the first four seasons or Game of Thrones. I just ignore what comes after. But I have yet to still see something which comes even close to this in a similar setting.


Why do people think Black Mirror is bad in the first place? Is it just being edgy on the internet? It's not gonna explore highly symbolic philosophical concepts, it's a lot more based on aesthetic and entertainment, so just take it for what it is. It's just a modern tech version of the Twilight Zone.


My personal impression is that its a word of mouth thing about the show only being "tech bad". However for the most part it isn't that.
However I believe the problem, at least the one I had, with the show is that it sometimes tries to take it self too seriously, or tries to cover a deep concept, or at least thinks it does so, and bungles it. Hence why I think the more "lets just do these little cool stories that have tech involved" episodes are the best, like Season III and IV.


I watched that stand alone Black Mirror film two days back so I think I'm ready to culminate my little review of the series. So, without further ado…
Black Mirror: Obunglersnatch
First, I think I should state that I obviously watched a pirated 90min "packed" version. And to be honest I believe this made for a better experiance. Because in the end I think the "Choose your own story" is inherintly more entertainment than art. Also the fact that YOU are responsible screws up the story, as I believe here it works better when observed from the side.
So next question. What is the film actually about. I offer three possibilities. I'll present them in terms of likelyness.
1st. Its another Black Mirror meh tier shit of "wot if your Netflix was real peepo?". Its just more of the same, correct, but at this point just boring, comodification of man and missery. However, there is more than that. Themes that don't connect and details that point to something more.
2nd. Its a tortured artist story, how pressure, management, trauma fuck up a man, and, eventually, make him stare at the abyss and being noticed back. This leads to the confrontation of ones free will, or more precisely, the lack there of. However this is unacceptable to the artist. He MUST be controlled, he can't just not have free will naturally, right? And this leads, eventually, to insanity, letting the voices, ones uncontrolled ID for the lack of a better term, take the vengeance and desire it wants. But there is still more. Something stays the same in all the insane, paranoid fantasies - the fathers room.
3rd. Its all MKUltra. I love this twist. It makes sense, there is enough to see it coming, its a topic that is woefully underused. It makes sense as well. The guy was literally fed LSD and other test drugs daily for entire childhood. His life is a fucking lie, put together from missremembered false memories. And of course he goes mental eventually, especially when he finds the truth. All his insane alternate paths, all other possibilities - just retroactive false memories trying to recontextualize the truth. Yes, he has no free will - not just in the actual philosophical sense, but in his basic life.
So, in the end. Obunglersnatch… its great! Its interesting, it makes sense, it has layers, its fun to watch along and its deffinetly not just "le epic exsperimental film for vuewer choice". Probably the best the series was outside the insane trekie episode.


Anybody used to watch Adam ruins everything on collegehumor?
I remember they made a TV out of it. What do you think about it

For me, it's socialist economics grafted onto a 50's-60's Americana aesthetic architectural superstructure.

Reject concrete. Embrace brick.


maybe some smaller buildings but I love thicc unpainted concrete walls


Fellas, we all can agree that brick brutalism is the way to go


yes, the attacks on brutalism being souless have always fallen flat for me, there's something about the thick concrete that makes an impression on you in a way that glass and steel don't.

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?

Neat campaign settings and a significantly different style of play, with different expectations of the players and the DM.


How so?
Every time I've played itit's also so numbery…


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.


And there's also a whole (sub)genre of music that is Heavily isnpired by it.

Flick does plenty of political and historical commentary in lewd and silly fashion. He's like Dahr, but without being grotesque.

Not a villain but Doomguy got transferred to Mars because he tried to frag his superior officer for ordering a war crime.

This shit goes back at least as far as Crime and Punishment.


Doomguy was originally based on Vietnam Vets and the common occurrence of fragging there.

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.

>If it works then it works.
The point is it doesn't. It's not good enough and it degrades the land.
>the point is to trap soil and prevent it from being torn away by wind and water run-off
WRONG. Soil is not a substance, like water. It's an ecosystem with structure and the more you disrupt that structure the more you destabilize it. You don't have to worry about runoff if the soil is stable to begin with.


Thanks m8

>It's not good enough and it degrades the land
Like I said, depends on your method. If you just till the land and nothing else, no shit it'll fuck things up, which is why you make sure to not leave it to be dispersed
> Soil is not a substance, like water. It's an ecosystem with structure and the more you disrupt that structure the more you destabilize it.
Soil is dug up and churned by nature all the time, it also gets washed away all the time, the reason meadows don't wash away near streams is because the grass is tightly holding the soil and the meadows tend to have trees retaining moisture and keeping out Dry Winds


Very interesting, thank you anon.

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.

I feel like such an oldfag writing this but I'm only 23. Where is everyone? I had assumed at least one other fan would be on leftypol these days.


I think I've heard of him before


Is he joking when he says the Gulag Archipelago turned him off Stalin? If not, lmao.


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.
