I use Notepad (or Mousepad) for writing down on-the-spot notes and brainfarts and whatnot, but when I need to start actually having bigger ideas of what to write and putting everything together, I would never use them


You could just send them the .tex file? Isn't that how scientists do it?


>Publishers don't accept PDF's
OP are you retarded? You send in the LaTeX code, not a damm pdf


Nope, most major non-academic book publishers/agents/editors only accept .docx


pandoc can work with .docx, it can convert to-and-from .tex, template them, the works.

NGL a dystopian organization like the Foundation going along with the state religion and putting pride colors on their logo is pretty on brand and only adds to the horror.

>The soybean, soy bean, or soya bean (Glycine max) is a species of legume native to East Asia, widely grown for its edible bean, which has numerous uses.
>Traditional unfermented food uses of soybeans include soy milk, from which tofu and tofu skin are made. Fermented soy foods include soy sauce, fermented bean paste, nattō, and tempeh. Fat-free (defatted) soybean meal is a significant and cheap source of protein for animal feeds and many packaged meals. For example, soybean products, such as textured vegetable protein (TVP), are ingredients in many meat and dairy substitutes.
>Soybeans contain significant amounts of phytic acid, dietary minerals and B vitamins. Soy vegetable oil, used in food and industrial applications, is another product of processing the soybean crop. Soybean is the most important protein source for feed farm animals (that in turn yields animal protein for human consumption).
Post recipes and other tidbits relating to soy. Did you eat soy today? Post about it in here! Everything related to maximizing one's intake of soy and promoting soy culture is on-topic.
Pic related is today's lunch, a veritable cornucopia of soy (soyucopia?) consisting of:
>plain tofu
>soy sauce
>fried soy mince
>soy schnitzel
>a bowl of edamame
and finally, for desert
naturally this feast was entirely vegan
finally, remember our motto here at /soy/:

some guy in a restaurant got mad because they said they had vegetarian food but tofu and salad apparently don't count


Well, I just eat the animals. It's the logical end result of veganism.

if hitler had spent his time growing more soy instead of starting a big 'ol war then he wouldn't have died a coward's death in a bunker. clearly this is the result of not soymaxxing enough

I'm trying to watch Young Royals ep.1 but it's too homosexual.


got any more riveting fox news comment section takes on tv shows

I'm gay, but I don't watch it because it has Royals in the title and I don't support monarchist propaganda.

Post general thoughts, comments and marxist or any analysis on the show.

Ep 1 and 2 is out, Ep 3 comes out today.

Never seen GoT and enjoying the show so far, decent political intrigue so far.

Honestly Rhaenera is a dumbass. Shouldn't have sent young boys to do high level negotiating.

I see what you were trying to say now anon
Weird asf Green-Red alliance

I guess it's just some bored russians memeing


Should have sent both to the same place. A prince still commands respect. And even Aemond didn't really wanted to kill Luke. The scene was about the dragon being an unstable WMD, everyone hates Aemond now, I don't know why. At best you can accuse him of willful negligence.

Rhaenera is subpar to the top players of the game by a good amount. Her limited success comes from her strong willpower, her advisors and the sheer weight of her claim.

Partly, it's contrarianism, secondly it's the infatuation with realpolitik over romantic idealism.

But hey, the cast seems like really nice people. I like shows where I can't stand the actors, but this is luckily not the case here.


>>30858 (me)
Also, there seems to be a good axis between the actors, the showrunners and GRRM. They all said they had great freedom in creating these characters, some dialog was improvised. Also this is the only show I know where the female directors deliver the good episodes.

Really shows you what kind of narcisisstic failsons D&D were.


what are some shows where you hate the actors, spill the tea

What is good media?

is anything that isn't directly an anti capitalist allegory automatically bourgeoise trash?

Is watching "high brow" media necessarily high brow? Are you watching as an intellectual exercise. Is watching shit media and being critical of it any less of an intellectual exercise than doing the same for "high brow" media.

Is the emotive experience of some media good on its own merits, in terms of, escapism being good for the human mind?

Is escapist media part of what suppresses the proletariat?

What necessitates a positive media experience, one that is properly healthy and proletarian? To be propagandised at? The good kind of propaganda I mean.

When you watch something imbued with capitalist ideology, and you are watching, supposedly critically, is that not, an educational experience?

Is seeking idle entertainment as part of an otherwise well rounded life a negative character trait?

I don't know, should you, my guy?


Debord? You should but he did not write about media.
> The empty debate on the spectacle – that is, on the activities of the world's owners – is thus organized by the spectacle itself: everything is said about the extensive means at its disposal, to ensure that nothing is said about their extensive deployment. Rather than talk of the spectacle, people often prefer to use the term 'media.' And by this they mean to describe a mere instrument, a kind of public service which with impartial 'professionalism' would facilitate the new wealth of mass communication through mass media [English in original] – a form of communication which has at last attained a unilateral purity, whereby decisions already taken are presented for peaceful admiration. For what is communicated are orders; and with great harmony, those who give them are also those who tell us what they think of them.
> The power of the spectacle, which is so fundamentally unitary, a centralizer by the very weight of things, and entirely despotic in spirit, frequently rails at seeing the constitution under its rule of a politics-spectacle, a justice-spectacle, a medicine-spectacle and all the other similarly surprising examples of "mediatic excess." Thus the spectacle would be nothing other than the excesses of the mediatic,[5] whose nature, unquestionably good since it facilitates communication, is sometimes driven to extremes. Often enough society's bosses declare themselves ill-served by their media employees: more often they blame the plebian spectators for the common, almost bestial manner in which they indulge in mediatic pleasures. A virtually infinite number of supposed mediatic differences thus serve to dissimulate what is, on the contrary, the result of a spectacular convergence, pursued with remarkable tenacity. Just as the logic of the commodity reigns over capitalists' competing ambitions, or the logic of war always dominates the frequent modifications in weaponry, so the harsh logic of the spectacle controls the abundant diversity of mediatic extravagances.

orks orks orks orks orks orks orks orks orks orks orks orks orks orks orks orks orks orks orks orks



da orks!


I usually really dislike warhammer for a lot of reasons but I do like da orks, they're the only likeable faction to me and they seem to be having a good time. also some of the ork stories are really good. ever heard of Tuska deamon slaya? basically this guy was travelling through the warp on a ship when the shields went down. the daemons of course flooded the ship but Tuska and his boyz slaughtered them. apparently Tuska liked his fight with the daemons so much that nothing could compare to daemons after that encounter so he decided to dedicate his life to slaughtering demons and gave himself the name- "Tuska Daemon Killa". he then decided to travel around the warp with his shields down to lure daemons into his shit so he could beat the shit out of him and thats exactly what he did- he went around the warp with his shields down and every time he did that demons would flood his ship and he and his boyz would obliterate them every single time. it got so bad that eventually daemons would just ignore him and let him pass.


this really pissed Tuska off so he decided to take the fight to the daemons by going into the eye of terror to terrorize them. the eye was guarded by the simperials but they were all pointed AT the eye so they couldn't or just didn't stop Tuska from going into the eye. they expected things to come out of the eye, they didn't expect some nutjob to try and go in. so yeah, in goes Tuska and absolutely terrorizes those chaos worlds- he sacked them untill he arrived at Khorne's world which was empty for some reason which really pissed him off, so he and his boys started shooting up the ground. this caused Khorne's demons to come out and start attacking so Tuska resumed the usual slaughter. he was kicking the daemon ass so hard that they had to send out a demon prince who eventually managed to shank Tuska with his sword. before he died Tuska crushed the prince's testicles with his power claw. this was not the end for Tuska though, Khorne liked him so much that he dragged him and his boys to be resurrected and fight his demons for all eternity. so basically ork heaven. Tuska still fights daemons in Khorne's realm to this day. hes also probably insanely strong because of all the fighting so when, not if, when he escapes he will probably cuck the entire galaxy into submission.

Is it chddy to think black hobbits native to the north is weird?
Immigrant I get but native should be too mixed out by third generation, unless hobbits practice jim crow


No it's a reasonable question as it doesn't make narrative sense, following the world-building. The only reason it'd be 'chinletdy' is if your reasoning is "hurr blacks in de shire is bad" or some /pol/shit like that.


I think it's weirder for hobbits to be diverse per se than to have black hobbits. Black hobbits per se isn't necessarily odd. I vaguely recall descriptions of hobbits being brown, or maybe specifically their hands/feet looking brown. People tolerate drow being pitch black in the underdark even though logically they would be extremely pale.

Hobbits all having dark skin for some reason would be one thing, but having a small and famously sedentary group of people be diverse makes no sense at all - where do the different phenotypes come from? I guess you could have an explanation but there is a weird trend in fantasy lately to completely ignore actors' and characters' ethnicities even when it raises obvious questions. If you want black hobbits just make them all black or change what hobbits are so it makes sense. Occasional black halflings in D&D is fine because the lore is totally different and they live all over the world, but for what the lore is in Tolkien it's weird to have significant diversity in an area that's roughly equivalent to rural England.


In the Silmarillion, Men came wandering out of the east when they first encountered Elves iirc. I think proto hobbits also had a similar wandering period before settling down in the Shire. If I was writing the show, that's how I would explain it at least, that this community has picked up different hobbity folk in its history of travel. IIRC, Smeagol isn't a hobbit either, but his people are related to hobbits. I'd imagine that this group is also made up of not quite hobbits, before settling down into what will become the hobbit community.

Or you can just say that Eru works in mysterious ways.


The ur-reactionary film

From time to time you get these right wing movies such as 300 and Conan the Barbarian which I call "reactionary films", i.e. any movie which is based on some hypermasculine white guy beating back the androgyne, ethnic forces of evil. Conan the Barbarian (1982) is the perfect example of this, the ur-reactionary movie

TLDR: Conan the barbarian (1982 movies) is a 1980s right wing movie, part of the Reagan turn/backlash against the 60s/70s. The witch he encounters and has sex with early through the movie is supposed to represent the evils of "free love", she literally turns into a ghost demon as she orgasms. The whole part where the girls father, the king asks Conan to get his daughter back from Thulsa Doom who is (probably) sexing his daughter. The cultists of Thulsa doom are supposed to be an analogue for hippie-commune 1960s people who tell Conan to "go back to the land" and have flower power shit. Next there's there's the gay snake-priest that tries to seduce Conan but Conan beats him up. The Villain of the movie is an ultra masculine deep voice black man (James Earl Jones as "Thulsa Doom") who has hypnotized a cult full of nubile dancing white girls into a sexualized stupor, sort of combining 1970s anti cult shit with anti hippie stuff. At the end the hippies put out their new age candles and shit and leave, and the girls go back to their fathers. All delivered by an ultramasculine white man (Arnie) to defeat and buckbreak black hypermasculinity (James Earl Jones). Essentially its the artistic reaction to undo the 1960s/70s and everything about it including sexuality, race, etc.

Long Version:

I: Introduction

Conan the Barbarian is a 1982 epic sword and sorcery film directed by John Milius and written by him and Oliver Stone. Based on Robert E. Howard‘s Conan, the film stars Arnold Schwarzenegger in the title role and James Earl Jones, with Sandahl Bergman, Gerry Lopez, Max von Sydow, Mako, Sven-Ole Thorsen, and Ben Davidson.

The film gave Schwarzenegger worldwide recognition, and in the years since its release, it became a cult film, making a lot more money on home video. It spawned a sequel, Conan the Destroyer, in 1984, and a reboot was made in 2011.

A link to quotes from the film can be found here.

>the whole idea that politics has to inform what pop-culture schlock you watch
This is the power of the New Left.


who cares about 80s action schlock lmao


lots of butthurt and cope in this thread over a simple critical review


>Calling out inane, paranoid fingerpointing is cope
Ok lol


The director John Milius is a weird guy that I'm somewhat fascinated by, he literally described himself as a right winger so right wing that he circles back to maoist anarachism
I have watched some of his other films, that he's either director and co-written, Geronimo, Wind and Lion and Farewell to the King and I get the impression that he just hates neo-liberalism and the modern world and would prefer anything over it, he reminds me a lot of patsoc dudes
