The trick is to find what works for you. Different people react differently to food and training. The fact that you can post such different approaches that both achieved great success illustrates this.

That said, high volume doesn't necessarily promote growth, there's a golden zone for that. Arnold was just a freak who loved pumping iron for its own sake.


the main thing is volume. You can either do a few big lifts or many little lifts.
Intensity is more important for powerlifting because it stresses the CNS more and more reps are better for hypertrophy to tear down the muscles fibres, at least that is the common theme, idk if it's bro science.


70.7kg man this kinda sucks but at least i'm making little progress bit by bit


HIT is mostly bullshit created as a marketing gimmick to sell exercise machines. Vid rel talks about the specifics, but quite simply, there have been two Mr Olympias who have exclusively used HIT: Mentzer and Yates. Arnold, Jay Cutler, Ronnie Coleman, Phil Heath, and every other man (IDK about the women's competitions) to take home a Sandow used regular training methods.

In your pic, Arnold has better Biceps, Delts, and chest, and Mentzer has better legs, triceps, and thicker forearms; this is probably from the 1980 olympia though, where Arnie wasn't at his best anyway.


>HIT is mostly bullshit created as a marketing gimmick to sell exercise machines.
HIIT for bodybuilding is kind of weird, it's more of a cardio conditioning thing. People will try to mix things that don't necessarily go together so they have a new gimmick to sell, that's capitalism for you.

Been bingeing a few of these. Most are extremely low effort, and it's overall a bit of a forced subgenre, but some stuff can be genuinely spooky.

Also there's a limited theatrical run in the US and Canada right now if you can find a showing near you

Any good stuff out there?


Would you stop when you're making bank off of this stuff?


Are they? The views dip below a million pretty quickly after the early ones, and they don't have many Patreon subscribers either.


IIRC Kris Straub confirmed that the moon in Local 58 is itself like a sentient Eldritch Abomination being. But I prefer the original fan theory that the events are all part of an alien invasion

Loving authority and state power doesn't make you a leftist


>Stop being a speedreader;
uygha nobody will read your retarded walls of texts thoroughly, you say nothing of worth anyway. must be kinda sad to be you, a witless fuck unable to communicate ideas in a compelling and concise way.


Imagine being this mad about a series with space glow swords and laser guns and tiny bears living in a forest. Have sex, touch grass, go outside at least to feel the sun, which is an actual thing in the real world.


>The show portrays the rebels in a counter-revolutionary manner that makes the empire look COMPARATIVELY good
<LOL u just luv uthority
Cope more ankid.

>More TL;DR cope
I stated my opinion succinctly, and was accused of "not explaining" but when I explain myself further; you bitch and moan about not reading it and use ad hominum like a typical infantile moron - hiding your illiteracy and ignorance behind dismissal
>unable to communicate ideas in a compelling and concise
I'm critiquing a TV-show that has an overall run-time longer than several films, I've been very concise, considering I've made several points within a few paragraphs, when a full analysis of a work this large is usually essay-level. As for compelling, the fact that you have no rebutall and have been VPN samefagging your cope replies says more about you. It's sad to see how leftypol has gone from posting and reading large amounts of text because we were more literate than our /pol/ counterparts, to where basic posting is now "text walls".

>a series with space glow swords and laser guns
Ah yes, of course, the typical deflection of "it's just muh space fantasy". Putting aside how that strawman isn't an argument, it's funny how the entire past few posts is about Andor being a "realistic" story that is distancing itself from the magical portions of such a setting, proving at least one of my points about how inane it is conceptually.
>Have sex, touch grass, go outsid
Unlike you permanently online, projecting NEETs, I work for a living, and I read literature and watch films as a form of relaxation, entertainment and education, thus I don't soyface over every show with fake-leftist themes like a LARPing ignoramus such as yourself. I suggest you either make an argument or go back to circle-jerking on r/Andor or whatever the subreddit for that show is named.

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.

>I mean what even was Ned's plan tho?
"Do what's right." The whole point is that he is too concerned with following rules to think in terms of "what will the consequences be?" He totally trusts his ideals of honor, duty, etc to put him on the right path. He is too naive to anticipate that this just makes him easily predictable to people who are "unscrupulous." It's more than a little cartoonish, but the point of it is pretty overt. GRRM isn't too good at subtlety, that's why everyone and their dog figured out R+L=J already.


why is it so fucking dark?
it's a fantasy show
you can have a little color, you know


the last couple of seasons of got had this problem too apparently

It's shot for HDR format TVs. On regular TVs it looks bad. Upgrade your home theater setup you fucking poormie.

GoT was just trying to mask bad CGI, that's a really common way to do it. Realistic color grading isn't common in big-budget productions at the moment, which also helps disguise things and make them uniform since you pipe everything to the same color palette. There are cases where it can work but it's overdone and GoT was pretty infamous example. The climactic battle scene of the series take place at night and it's lit in a way where you often literally cannot see anything. It's comical, one of the biggest and key factions from episode one of the show gets "wiped out" (until next episode where the showrunners kinda forgot about that) and the way it's shown is picrel. You just see the flames from their weapons lit on fire charging toward the enemy and then going out.


i watched it on an HDR smart TV in the dark
it still looked dull

more gorgeous pics. What camera do you use? I got a one recently, havent messed around with it much but I get the impression I need a bigger lens to get landscape shots. current lens is 18-55mm


Fuck I really need to take that trip to Canada I was planning, you're making me jealous of all


Thanks, and it’s just an iPhone, nothing special. I’m sure I could get much better shots with a dedicated camera, but I prefer hiking without anything bulky.

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?

Skynet was explicitly a Cold War weapon and followed that logic to a T, Terminator is also much more about the nature of human resilience, the power of love such that it’s unbound by time itself, and ultimately what it means to be human. The Terminators themselves, which don’t actually act like machines, aren’t meant to be simply a reflection of how tech might turn out, the films have very heavy and very blatant religious metaphors (“Judgement Day”, “John Connor, J.C.” a child born of impossible circumstances meant to save the world, etc.)

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).

Get off your high horse and read a fucking book yourself, or better yet learn reading comprehension, you strawmanning smart ass.


Anyone seen this? I'm reading the book about Showgirls by Adam Nayman, and apparently he really liked this one.

Is that TV/Movie, or TV Movie?

How about film-length youtube videos like The Haircut?


Watch Showgirls. Jacques Rivette considered it Paul Verhoeven's best film about America. I agree with him.


Youtuber Quinton Reviews made a roughly 36 hours long iCarly cinematic multiverse video essay/review/recap, nothing of value but fun as a filler noise for background. He will likely do even more videos since iCarly, Victorious, sam and cat and Fred are only things he has done videos about and thats barely the half of nickelodeons shows that are in the same multiverse. I am not proud of the fact that I have watched these videos at least twice.


Vansploitation Movies


there can't be a "film about [x country]"
that's just an unrealistic claim
