Yay~ I've been reading about the Russian Constructivists and have been trying to get a hold of more resources on the emergence of Socialist Realism >>>/tech/8300

I also recently got this book on VKhUTEMAS, which is often described as the "Soviet Bauhaus"—the author summarized the differences between the two in a lecture given at GARAGEMCA last year, which I thought was interesting:
>..if the Bauhaus was ultimately dedicated to developing an individual, VKhUTEMAS was really about developing the masses"


Reminder this thread came out of /log/ talking about early CPUSA-adjacent artists in /log/. If anyone wants to learn more about that then by all means check out Andrew Hemingway's work. He seems like one of the few people carrying the torch of "Social Art History" as far as American and British art are concerned: https://archive.org/details/andrew-hemingway-artists-on-the-left-american-artists-and-the-communist-movement-1926-1956/

Sorry if repost but this a discussion of the Star Wars Franchise which started in 1977

Is there any books like the Traviss Republic Commando books or medstar?


nothing quite like that yet, though I imagine post Bad Batch (and thus post-Clone Wars tv show) we're going to see a lot of content around that era start to get published as a follow-up


The red kaminoan was the one overseeing Crosshair’s chip “enhancing” and also let Omega escape if I recall correctly. Maybe she has a plan for the Bad Batch too?


new episode was neat

nice seeing Cut again, shame they missed Rex just by a day. Echo probably hadn't seen him for a long while, though it's basically confirmed that they will run into Rex later now.


Don't know how intentional it was, but I liked the little social commentary with Chain Codes. I mean, nowadays literally every functional country, fascist or otherwise, has an ID database of some sort. When you really consider it, yea, it is kind of spooky violation of privacy, although pretty much mandatory for a functional modern world. I am kind of surprised though that the Republic didn't have a Chain Code already. Also to be perfectly honest the Empire is kind of in the right on these administrative issues, SW universe is basically ancapistan in many regards, which really needs some sort of strong galactic governance.

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


Yeah, but it so fucking expensive man. I can't smoke weed on a regular basis, if all my income goes out to survive


Growing decent, cheap weed is incredibly easy, there are a ton of small scale affordable options out there. I just grow in my backyard and in a tent inside, but I know people who tried something called spacebuckets which is scalable and can be done in an apartment.

Growing good weed though? Harder, but still cheap


In addition to what some already replied also read a quick summary of the difference between the two large types of cannabis: indica and sativa.
· indica makes you "heavy" / "hungry" / "couch potato" / "sleepy"
· sativa makes you "alert" / "energetic" / "creative"
Most that are available on the streets are "hybrids" of these, but if you're in a jurisdiction where cannabis has been decriminalized or even legalized then it'd be relatively easy for you to find a "pure blend indica OR sativa", depending on what type of high you're interesting in.

Old /co/ thread is dead and buried.
Let's have a new thread to talk about comics and animation.

For anybody who wants to read all comic books, I like this website because it loads all the pages instead of making you click each page, so you can just scroll it easily

And it's library of comics is pretty big.

What is good about it?

>What was the last comic any of you was hype about?

The new punisher series from 2 years ago

Currently I'm hyped about ASM (2018)
There's some centipede bad guy in the issue I'm reading and I don't know what's his deal is, Seems like he's a new villain.


>What is good about it?
It's just nice to explore this setting, an earth where the characters alignments are flip but so far is just different from what I expected, it reads more like an early 00's comic like the ultimates or the authority than a direct flip of the justice league.

>Literally the only DC book I still read
This fucking sucks. But recently I’ve been reading some old comics like Lazarus Churchyard and Transmetropolitan. 2020 Visions was fucking hilariously accurate outside of the “muh feminism” fear mongering. With a viral pandemic without cure and all!


>2020 Visions
I think I heard about it, wasn't it published by vertigo in 1999 or 2000? Now it hurts to know it was accurate.

It also somehow managed to predict the 2008 crash and the impenetrability of Wall Street. Sometimes reactionaries are so close yet so far.

Ask your /fit/ related questions here.

[b]Beginner's Health and Fitness Guide, aka "the /fit/ sticky"[/b]

how do i overcome the wall? i'v been working out for almost a year now, gained about 33lbs mostly muscles.

i have no made any gain in the past 4 months now despite woring out and eating the same way. how do i get past this and gain muscles again?

i don't understand how that can happen if you're exercising regularly


Gymbod training and gym culture are bourgeois and inherently problematic. A fit, capable body should be a BYPRODUCT of a lifestyle full of work and free from capitalist influence, not the GOAL at the expense of avoiding work and indulging in capitalist (gym) influence. Exercise should be free comrades.


But how is that possible
So much of modern work is computerized


Father Time is undefeated and has a 100% Knockout ratio

This thread was made to post or ask for lost leftist YouTube videos or other media.
1 post omitted. Click reply to view.


ok so one anon is already posting a bunch of lost videos here >>>/b/19114


There was this channel called Reading Radical on YouTube
It was mostly readings/explanations of Marxism with vaporwave music in the background and an overall vaporwave visual aesthetic, but taken to the extreme. The host preseneted themself as a cheap 3D early cgi rendered duck? or some other animal with a beak, but with human arms and legs. The host also had a weird, maybe pre-pubescent male voice. There were also some lectures on formal logic.
The channel is now off YouTube and the only way I found to contact Reading Radical was on reddit. They didn't respond.
Anyone know anything? Anyone remember? These videos were really damn comfy…


Holy shit this is the perfect thread
I was watching the Law of Value series and the videos suddenly became private

Does anybody know an alternative repository of those videos???

Star trek was never, and never will be a utopian society.


It is if you exclude the canon-breaking garbage in DS9.


DS9 & Voy had to introduce some capitalism stuff to counteract all that gommie sharing crap in TNG


Clearly the Federation was in sharp contrast to the AnCap Ferengis, and this contrast was played out in DS9 rather endearing, but you never got the feel that in terms of the "big issues" the Ferengi ideology was ever a challenge to the Federation.

In DS9 it is implied that the Federation uses labor credits, that allows you to use the transporter and replicator on Earth.


First teaser for the second season of Picard.

You know, it's not even that bad if they were to go back to the roots and do a season centering arround Q's "trial", although they'd have to invent some bullshit explanation for John de Lancie's aging.

The problem is they have already sunk the ship with the first season. Jay-L is a fucking robot now with no soul. His entire crew is a bunch of snappy assholes, although they could be dumped but I don't think so. It's gonna ba another season with captain windbag, that backstabbing anxious bitch, terminator model Seven of Nine and the alcoholic mom in her midlife crisis. But even if all that ballast wasn't there, and they would play it save, I have full confidence in Alex Cuntman to royally fuck it up.

Arial and Arial Bold


File: 1620353710309.png (119.03 KB, 217x230, 1595046513161.png)

At least use Helvetica (which is overrated IMO).


I like Century Gothic actually, out of the fonts that come free with Word.
But Arial is my default font.


Liberation Sans


Century Gothic is OK. Personally, I use a combination of Franklin Gothic and Century Schoolbook for work as they come free for work and look good for legal documents.

Liberation Sans is good, it is my default font for my Linux OS.

Kinda missed that. The thing is, it doesn't change what is said. Those films are pretty meh or even shit compared to what soviet cinema can offer. Unless you are some fart-sniffin liberal


How about you post the "best ones" then, comrade of impeccable taste?


Чапаев, Великий Гражданин, Доживем до понедельника, Премия, Кин-дза-дза.

If we also add TV series then Вечный зов and Тени исчезают в полдень.

Plenty of ther ones.


It's a start, I'll check em out. Thanks.


I am not sure they have translation or subs to english though.
