/OUT/A thread for the Hiking, Hillwalking, Mountaineering, Camping, Randonneuring and other comfy /out/door pursuits involving time in the wilderness
Horror discussion from a leftist perspectiveI'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.
Conan The Barbarian movie reviewThe ur-reactionary film
World War II thread: Soviet editionЗа Победу!
How does Leftypol feel about Rick and Morty?Tbh I liked it at first but imo Rick is too much of an unlikable sociopath, Jerry is too pathetic, the show comes off as simultaneously too self-important and too mocking of its fans who overrate it.
Planes / Aviation GeneralDo you like planes?
free retro homebrew gamingDo you have an emulator for NES, anon?
/Western (Wild West) General/Classic yet controversial genre. Of course, it falls into tropes and mythologizes this era. At the same time, you have to admit, it can be good media. Share your favorite films, books, games and etc.

What is the Materialist Explanation for the 1940s-60s L. A. Actress Murdershttps://youtu.be/u9QW3c2gl58
Season 6 sucksOnly the first episode is sci-fi, with a dumb twist, relying on cameos to get people interested. The other five aren't even sci-fi or science fantasy, just pure fantasy. Second episode isn't about anything supernatural, old couple that used to film themselves killing people in a mask, with the antagonist just killing herself at the end.
MATTRESS APPRECIATOR GENERAL - /MAG/WHAT's the most important piece of furniture?
Art threadCan we have an art thread?
Seventeen Moments of SpringThis Soviet TV series is probably the best TV show ever made.
Storytime - Superman Red SonWhat if instead of landing in the burger heartland, Kal-El landed in the middle of the Soviet Union?
Snowpiercer - Why do Americans have the most retarded interpretation of this film imaginable?Holy shit, I've rarely seen a movie as on the nose and blunt in its critique of capitalist society, and yet Americans seemingly cannot comprehend what it's a criticism of. I've seen "It's about authoritarianism" "It's about the death of free market competition" "It's secretly about socialism!"
Star Control IIwhich side of space Zionism is right?
Language LearningSo you might be looking at the name of this thread and thinking Language learning as a hobby? Why yes, this thread is to be dedicated to those that are learning a new language as a hobby.
LEFT WING CINEMAGREETINGS COMRADES
Inside Llewyn DavisFor some reason, I can't stand the Coen Brothers' stuff in general, but this one movie by them has got to be one of my favourites that I've watched so far. It has a lot of rewatch quality for me. There are so many engaging interweaving subplots and side characters within it, and overall it's a pretty good depiction of the drudgery and rejection underneath culture industry.
Buildings should lastSo many fabulous and easily maintained buildings have been demolished because of short-sightedness. We shouldn't be vandals of architecture. We should preserve the Penn stations and the Russian cathedrals of the world, and not just demolish our monuments.
SolarpunkWhat do you think of the Solarpunk literary genre? I find it very interesting, not only because I find the aesthetics very attractive, but also because it is openly anti-capitalist and has a very strong ideological content.
Communo-tourismFor the first time in my life i have enough money to travel and see the friends i have made over the years in their home country.
/csi/ - Commie Self-ImprovementWe have the social skills advice, fit threads and what not but I want a general purpose thread for encouraging comrades to get ahead.
INTERNET ARCHAEOLOGYStayed up tonight to make a pastebin specifically full of old youtube channels. No i didn't double check anything. Anyway i have a whole youtube account that's basically a time capsule so i might make a pastebin of my liked videos later if i ever feel like it.
I think this Show and the comics presents how corporations actually feel about conservatismThe origins of trade were never rooted in politics, especially contemporary politics it was just a phenomenon that emerged from the distribution of tokens and capital where some figures wanted to hoard capital for the sake of it. the work of Garth ennis work kind of shows, at least to me that contemporary corporations and companies are still basically the same and will brainlessly serve whatever thing gives them more money and likewise don’t care that much about their customers or their perspectives to any extent that doesn’t immediately benefit profits. I guess the supers just represent how those companies treat those loyal to them, essentially disposable and meant to be hauled around until they run out of their usefulness to their companies, similar to how defence and healthcare companies do little to help veterans in NATO member states or how frequently reactionary groups turn out to blindly support corporations to their own destruction since ww1 to today
Fiction ReadingHello everyone, I want to make a topic about books, but, ones that are too trashy for /edu/. Talk about books, request books, et cetera.
Alternative chansPost all obscure and underground imageboards in this thread, the chan must be at least half-dead so no archived chans.
Martial arts threadComrades let's have a thread for martial arts, combat sports and self defense. Striking, grappling, all styles welcome (except fake ass shit). Let's talk about training, techniques, fights, fighters, etc. Here's a fun fact: One of the many achievements of the soviets was founding their own combat system, sambo, which proved to be extremely effective and is still widely practiced today. Also, Judo orange belt here (AMA if you want)
/leftybiz/ Leftypol Business GeneralITT we discuss business strategy and help other anons escape wage slavery, build a business that subverts capitalism from within, and become ethical petty booj with a lefty perspective in mind.
/soy/ - Soymaxxing general>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.
Just being Visually stimulating is not enough!There has been rise in film makers lately who just think if the photographic aspect of their cinema is great that means great cinema. This is just wrong, dead wrong. Cinema is the most powerful mode of story telling and if you are not able to tell anything through this medium then you are just intellectually bankrupt. If I only wanted great photography, I could just browse collection of paintings and photographs. Why would I need to see a film? Capitalism is truly creating the most mediocre cancer in history when it comes to Art and Literature.
PermacultureThe 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.
/Exchange/ - Skill Exchange generalEach one teach one! Request or teach people some new hobbies/skills, some pro tips, how to do your job, anything you're experienced at with your insider knowledge and experience. If you learn something good from other anons, reciprocate and let this be a leftypol secret academy

Anyone like mechanics?If all electricity gets shut off, acoustic telephones would become the next internet for relaying life-saving information. My idea is to take a diaphragm that is 1 foot in diameter, then take 1 mile or longer line wire so you can have better range. It would be a public payphone.

Billy butcher and syndrome were rightThe incredibles and the boys fucking proved how much of a menace to society superheroes would be if they were part of public security and the way the boys showcased the constant infighting between these overglorified children with special gifts fucking verifies the idea that just offing them all would do more to put them(and everyone else that has to die from collateral damage or blatant abuse of power) out of their misery
I don’t like him at all but he’s also my favourite animated superheroIt’s because he accurately portrays how destructive and emotionally immature most protagonists in media actually are. Something only evangelion did right with their portrayal not just of Shinji but the other characters as a whole whose traits wether overconfidence, ambition placed over community or just plane stupidity destroyed the lives and communities surrounding them and the way he devolves into an absolute fucking monster that’s abusing his status in the world he’s in is so painful it’s good and let’s me remember why avoid watching not just superhero shows but most new media in general because the protagonists are always like this but without actual consequences
New age of animated porn?Dreamworks is about to release to the public teir animating tools. I I think a golden age of indie animations is among us.

USSR mediaSo my grandma lived in Lithuania back when it was an SSR (She says she was born right after ww2 for reference) and she liked the movies there, from what I can gather they were family friendly affairs similar to the first pirates of the carribean in tone, any comments and maybe recomendations for old soviete media?
Films You Just Watched ThreadHello, the most recent movie threads have seemed a bit unfocused, this thread is for the discussion of movies we just watched and other anon's takes on them. So, without further ado I'll begin.
UKROP STREET JUSTICE PIC/VID DUMPThis is a thread for pictures and videos of Ukrainians, their soldiers, civilians, territorial defense, volunteers, punishing people in the street by tying them to a pole, and then stripping them, beating them, and so on. The goal is to collect as many as we can and then make a montage video at the end that can be shared across social media, YouTube, rumble, liveleak, and such places. The Western media has not even mentioned these crimes, we need to get it into people's consciousness.
/mu/ - MusicDiscuss and share songs, albums artists you like. You can talk about making music as well.
Paranormal activitiesWhat non political conspiracies/paranormal stuff does leftypol believe in? Are any of you UFOfags? What exactly is it in human psychology that wants to believe in bigfoot, etc. and other such things where people are willing to believe in paranormal phenomenon? And if such a thing is built into human psychology can the vast majority of people ever escape an idealist mode of thought?
Internet archeologyI really wanna get back into surfing the net like i did as a kid. I would just click through sites to sites to sites to sites. I would find weird sites full of weird people in their own tiny tiny slice of the internet.
GET OUTMEN, and all other interested parties.
Drive to SurviveJust watched S4E3, what a disgusting load of shit that is that Hamilton crashes out Verstappen, gets judged as responsible by the stewards, but the FIA lets him win the race through their appalling decisions.
Cybersyn Living RoomThe Project Cybersyn Operations Room looked comfy and futuristic, so I want to model my living room after it. It won't be an exact replica, for example, I don't need all the displays. The things I'll try to replicate are the wallpaper (easy), carpet (easy) and the chairs (hard).
WW3 Scenarios.So, might as well put this fanfiction I made on how could ww3 go:
scifi shields are wrongIn almost all science fiction stories energy shields are used as if it was regular armor, except that it's made out of energy instead of unpenetranium. I think that's lacking imagination and actual tactics would not use it like this. If you can project a wall made out of energy, why would you put it around your self, why not put it around your enemies. You get a two for one, their weapons and their movement could be blocked in one go.
Cobra KaiCobra Kai is a great fucking show. I can't stress this enough. Even if you haven't seen the Karate Kid in a while check this shit out. It's on Netflix now and actually has some pretty underlying class-pilled themes to it. It accurately shows the living standards and struggles of several people. The rich characters are often portrayed as self-righteous and frivolous (Daniel) while working-class characters like Johnny, Miguel, and Kreese are explored in depth. Definitely recommend this show. Lets discuss here
MBTI/Jungian psychology and /leftypol/What's your personality type? INFP gang represent. Also daily reminder that MBTI and even Jungian cognitive functions are not a concrete analysis of how people behave, it's only a general prediction of how people behave over a period of time when faced with various situations.
/Therapy/ GeneralA thread to talk in a less judging environment and give and recieve life and mental health advice from a class conscious perspective. You can talk about whatever is on your mind, that is a big part of therapy itself.

CatsDo you think cats can pass the mirror test? My cats seem self aware, but aren't interested in mirrors. They also have zero understanding of computer screens, and keep crawling behind speakers looking for the source when you play recorded cat meows, no matter how many times you do it.

Marxist analysis of the Disney Live-Action Remakes/Hollywood’s lack of originalityI want that deep red Zizek pill on why Disney is remaking their old animated feature films but devoid of soul and charm as live action monstrosities and why Hollywood in general cannot make a new story and is endlessly digging its head into its own anus amid a shit slurry of “sequels” and remakes of IPs from the 80s.

Psychedelics GeneralGQ:Are there political or social ills that that you think might benefit from the sort of entropy that psychedelics can introduce into our consciousness?
Soviet kino viewingsWould anyone be interested in a group stream of some Soviet era red westerns such as "At Home Among Strangers" ( Свой среди чужих, чужой среди своих; Svoy sredi chuzhikh, chuzhoy sredi svoikh)? I am also up for streaming other films if anyone has any suggestions
I'm negotiating for the release of Dave ChappelleLadies, gentlemen, attack helicopters…what did he do wrong? Was any part of The Closer hate speech? I understand discussions like these aren't always welcome here but I'm not sure what good not talking about it's gonna do. Anyhow, I find it hard to come away from watching The Closer thinking Chapelle is anti-lgbt. I mean the fucking special ends with him declaring he's going to give a ton of money to a transgendered persons daughter. Regrettably that person committed suicide. You could argue he cares about that persons daughter more than she did. What he does do is make some poignant critiques about the lgbt movement, but it's nothing that amounts to hate speech. Anyhow, I'm just curious where people here are at on this.
/wt/ watchesNot sure who here is into watches, but I really enjoy them as both time-capsules for the aesthetic sensibilities of a period as well as for craftmanship and engineering.
Lord of the RIng's analogyCapitalism is all the free people's of middle earth in gradual decline with elves leaving, the Men of Gondor without a King for century's and in decline not to mention men like the Haradrim and Easterlings wanting to side with us.
Against SoccerModern soccer is a joke. “Jogo bonito?”—not anymore. Soccer is marred, among other things, by the beguiling act of—you already know it—diving. Take the 2021 Euro—almost every game here has been decided by a player diving and getting an undeserved call. The most striking example occurred today (i.e., July 07, 2021) in the Semifinal, when a blatant dive in the penalty area by an English player (i.e, Stirling) led to England’s undeserved win over Denmark. Diving affecting major games is not a recent phenomenon—it has been ongoing for years now. Take, for example, the “No Era Penal” incident back in 2014, wherein the infamous dive by the Dutch player Arjen Robben led to Mexico’s undeserved exit in the Round of 16. Hell, back in 2011, researchers published a paper (hereinafter named “Gwendolyn”; see link below) which studied diving in soccer. The paper found the simple fact that players dive when the benefits outweigh the costs of doing so. See Gwendolyn. Keeping this in mind, Gwendolyn suggested that increasing the ability of referees to detect dives and increase the punishments associated with diving may deter players from doing so. See id. But look where we are ten years later. If anything, the problem has only gotten worse—even with the introduction of VAR! Will there ever be an end to this quandary?
High SeasInformation should be freely shared with everyone. Media is information. Therefore media should be freely shared, the only cost being the physical storage medium, if there is one.
weirder hobbiesso, does anyone have weird/autistic hobbies? I like collecting insects, arachnids, small animals and etc putting them in jars and observing them. I don't just chuck them in either, I make sure they have a decent home so I always insert grass/leaves/sand/whatever else they like. I used to have a miniature zoo at home but medical university makes it hard for me to keep a large collection unfortunately. I've been doing this since I was 4 years old, at least thats the earliest time I can remember doing this kind of thing.

Discussion: Arts under IdeologyThis thread is not for dumping art, but feel free to use it to supplement your points.
What is the appeal of "Mukbang" videos?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.
