Any interest in a stoner thread?

I usually smoke with my bf and he's not really political, it'd be nice to have a place to discuss thoughts or just discuss stoner shit in general

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

1. Male movie reviewers literally review movies as bad because female actors don't show enough tits. The male gaze objectifying people to consume them is absolutely an injustice, any Marxis should oppose the commodification of women. Of course brosocialists hate "woke identity politics" so they'll never talk about how Hollywood contributes to the ongoing rape of women in porn lol

2. How many white settler colonialist people will point out the obviously CIA funded movies, or the inherent fascism of heroic myths for Iron Man/Black Panther/etc

No it isn't, even by feminist standards. The male gaze argument is that objectifying women socializes men to mistreat women. It's supposedly a contributing factor to injustice, not an injustice unto itself.

I agree but this is not what Mike is arguing. The reality is that many people, especially women, have to choose between putting food on the table or making a piece of authentic work, speaking out against sexual harassment or being targeted by big names in the entertainment industry. There's no place for women to run to in order to escape the rampant exploitation in the industry without being blacklisted from it.

Celebrities like Brie Larson are more than happy to allow this to happen as long as they can stay in their multi-million dollar homes. That's because they make their paychecks by meeting the male gaze and nodding their heads towards the men who perpetuate it (look no further than how liberals/celebrities destroyed #MeToo for Biden). For every Brie Larson, there is an underbelly of underpaid female editors, writers, and etc. who add to the bulk of the value of the movie, but aren't paid if they did, so that Brie can be paid millions of dollars based on her looks alone.The cherry on top is that she's defending a capeshit movie of all things, a genre that could show a literal turd for 10 hrs and viewers would still ask for a re-release with director cuts.

It's performative feminism at its' finest, the sort required by most celebrities nowadays because their masters are upset that consumers are starting to realize just how disgusting they are. The sort that tricks women into believing that progress is being made when nothing in the superstructure has fundamentally changed.

Magic in HP is a bit weird because you have to have innate ability and you have to study at length to learn how to use it.

>>13748
Hermione has the magic gene or whatever it is that lets her do magic. She's not a muggle, just her parents are. It's unclear if there's something like a recessive gene or whatever but some magic users are born to muggles and some non-magic users are born to magic-users. It's kind of implied that having a scientific or muggle-oriented approach to magic is actually helpful, because people like Hermione or Arthur Weasley get good results thanks to their curiosity and experimentation.
>>13763
Yes except it doesn't seem to have anything to do with blood purity. IIRC there was somebody from a pureblood family with no magic. One of the Black family I think. One of Harry's neighbors is also a squib (which is how the books introduce the idea), and so is Filch.

>>13749
>Yeah, I think Muggles are more uninformed than unable.
No, they are 100% unable, as are the "squibs" who are born to wizard families but can't do magic. You need the mojo to be able to do magic at all. How good a study you are just influences your aptitude.
>I'm not sure if the science and magic in fantasy is really comparable, if you mean scientific method
HP plays with that. The wizard world uses antiquated technology (Harry's first year is 1991-1992) and supposedly certain more modern technology malfunctions in areas with a lot of magic like Hogwartz (although that could be a spell that does that intentionally). One of the themes of the story is that the wizards are kind of backward because they're insular and think they're superior to muggles and ignore their technology. Like there's the bit where Arthur Weasley got bit by the magic snake and wizard medicine wasn't able to help him but muggle medicine worked. Most wizards also don't seem to have a deep understanding of magic and how it works, but just say the words and do the gestures to make stuff happen, so their understanding of magic isn't Post too long.

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."

Hello everyone, I want to make a topic about books, but, ones that are too trashy for /edu/. Talk about books, request books, et cetera.

Well, I'll start off the thread by asking for recommendations for 'optimistic sci-fi' where humans and aliens get along (relatively speaking) and accomplish things. Bonus points if there's first contact involved, extra bonus points if there's interspecies romance. Mee-yow. I've already read a lot of books like this but I can't get enough. Thanks everyone.

I hear some reading devices are like paper to look at. You might try one of those. Probably cheaper than printing books.

>Alan Moore was an idealistic radlib who thinks random violence without any planning after the results will do anything other than continuing the endless struggle.
yea i don't think he thought that, and you will notice this if you look into all the flaws with V's character, the flaws with the characters that he's supposed to be saving, and (if you read the actual graphic novel not watch the shitty movie) you will realise that the only person who is continuing the fight after V's death is Evie as the crowd simply riots around with no aim other than to smash the state, bringing the brutal fascist reign to its obvious conclusion of pointless individual violence with the aftermath unstated on purpose so that people can write in their own idealistic/materialistic outcomes, despite the fact that it can all only turn out one way (return to reaction), which is why Evie doesn't just "retire to enjoy the spoils" and it averts this entire "much wholesome" nonsense trope. the whole angle of the graphic novel was less so the outcome of it than basically a thorough deconstruction of how all of those "perfect" and "polite" politicians (remember he was writing this in a time before the internet when all of these cunts had the ability to carefully curate their public image as long as the msm were compliant) are actually horrible fucking human beings corrupted by power that backstab each other and commit degenerate acts endlessly, in other words they act exactly like the "unwashed masses" that the ruling class has such disdain for thanks to their projection, and in the context of thatcherite britain it was absolutely perfect.

alan moore may not be a revolutionary and he may not even be a particularly good anarchist with his occultist obsessions, but every artistic work he did has its nuances that need to be explored from a particular zeitgeist, v for vendetta included.

Again, this isn't incorrect, but it assumes that he was consciously writing this and not just depicting real life.

I agree that it was a interesting novel and film but I also believe it is overrated by many, partially because he doesn't really present a solution and it ends up being just like every other depiction of revolution's dirtiness. It becomes tiresome because I'm sick of reading about a novelized satirization of real life, when I live and experience it anyway. Might as well look out the window or watch the news for all the difference it makes.

i do, i read an interview with him where he specifically talked about this being intentional. i need to find it again, but i doubt he just used it to make himself look big brained post factum
>Again, this isn't incorrect, but it assumes that he was consciously writing this and not just depicting real life.
he was doing both according to himself. like i said, the zeitgeist of the time absolutely played a part in how this was written out. in the thatcherite years there was hardly a talk of revolutions or uprisings as depressing as that is, the focus on and depression after the trade unions defeat was too great, so his ending in the context of 80s britain was almost inflammatory while also being despondent at the same time due to the knowledge of how all of this was really just the system eating itself and not some indomitable will of the people or even one person. the most V succeeded at in the end was propaganda by the deed, but like each instance of it irl it led to nothing more than an outburst of momentary emotion, and the party members killing each other only confirms that the biggest damage was caused by the party itself, even to itself.

if he wrote v for vendetta in the modern context where the talk of "revolution" (however watered down) is basically a daily occurrence even with libs (either against it or "for" things such as "a diversity revolution" that means more female ceos kek), it would not be as genre defining.

Interesting short video about Bacon's Screaming Pope.
<The Pope's transparency makes it look as if the lines descending on him were, in a way, burning him, and making him disappear. These vertical lines are definitely a great example of Bacon's famous "violent brushstrokes."
