this was surprisingly good

it's for free on youtube


I don't like the aesthetic. It looks blandly futuristic. Besides that, it may very well be good. Chalmet is also an unconvincing actor, not least because he looks to be permanently 12 years old.


>brad pitt philosophizing in a movie


all the lead actors sucked. Branagh felt totally out of place. The sound was screwed up and there is too much spoonfed explanation in the film.


I have almost no intrest since I am not invested in the setting/franchise, but if it turns out to be good then I would be happy since all the other major Sci-fi franchises have turned to shit and I have nothing to nerd out on anymore in the genera.

Any fellow enthusiasts here? I'm into wood carving and metal working stuff and like anything related to knives and multitools or EDC related stuff. I personally have a Victorinox Climber and a cheap chinese Multitool plier and that's enough for my uses. Also have a generic fixed blade knife that I learned to use for different stuff like wood carving, opening cans and other home stuff. I mostly use them at home when doing stuff in my garden

Yes, every week during summer and autumn. It would be unhygienic not to, because it's used to cut wild fruits or apples for lunch. If it's all stainless construction it should be easy to clean like >>57069 implies.

Found this knife ages ago doing mandatory army service, has served me well since then and only had to do minor cleanup. The sheet I bought after


Leatherman are glorified, overpriced trash. I've seen the metal saw getting dull after being used and the tool itself full of rust. Also the scissors of some models have a factory defect that makes the spring to break even if not used


Do you guys think is better to have a SAK and a knipex or something like that rather than a leatherman?


that looks like a Fallkniven knife.

File: 1614650094430.png (1.13 MB, 720x1560, 6:13, sauerkraut.png) ImgOps iqdb

Sauerkraut, I've made it a few times before. I wait 3 weeks until its fully mature. I want it to get very acidic then balance out naturally. I think I'll get more jars and more cabbage and make some more while I wait.

Besides cabbage and salt I put carrots, celery, black pepper, white pepper (it kinda makes your mouth numb, it's nice), mustard seed and caraway seeds in this. First you cut up the cabbage, then salt it, then press it down and squeeze it to get the water out which will be your brine, then you put it all in your jar and push it down with something to make it dense and below the water. Perhaps not metal because metal can hurt bacteria, but I doubt it matters. Also you save the first leaf from the cabbage to form a cap for it. Non-iodine salt is better because iodine will inhibit the bacteria, but I've made it with iodine salt once and it didn't matter especially when you're willing to wait weeks.


Enjoying my lime-mint kombucha I made. Previously I had lemon-lime-ginger. Next I think I'll make something with cinnamon.

All you need to begin drawing is a pencil and some paper

Feel free to post any drawings of yours in this thread. Illustration, doodle, traditional, digital - anything goes. Discussion on skillbuilding techniques and fair critique of other wizards' work is welcome.

Something GLT
Anyone saying that you just need to draw to get good is bullshiting. I’m literally good at like 2 things in life and that’s guns and making mechanical models. I’ve spent hours and I’m just not getting good, I’ll keep at it but I’ve noticed pretty much no improvements since last month. In fact it looks identical to what I drew when I were a fucking preteen it’s so frustrating. I just want to create but I can hardly draw a circle as illustrated by pic related


>guns and making mechanical models

unirnoically child's play. art is extremely difficult, i would recommend going on /ic/, pilfering their resources and finding something that speaks to you.


I don't know either of these enough to come up with some scene that makes sense, so it would probably just be a portrait unless you suggest otherwise


Start from Drawabox lessons. It is free and easy to digest. Construction, perspective, how to make lines. Those are the basics. Learn the basics - practice - improve. Not just drawing for fun.
Perspective on your picture is weird, literally incomprehensible, the lines are wobbly and curved, hatches and cross hatches are too straight, show no shape, no texture, serve no purpose. If you want to get good, start from the very fundamentals. After you have acquired the understanding how things work, drawing will be fun.


Portrait sounds good. Flex your skills, wiz.

Not sure if a poetry thread exists. Post good poetry, please. Even stories like the one listed are accepted. This book is about an intemperate man who struggles with emotions.


Poetry can go in the writing or reading thread.
I don't see why it would need it's own thread when it has such a limited stand alone interest and usually crosses over with one of the two other active threads.

Not complaining. I just think this thread will end up dead. Could be wrong but I doubt it.


Poetry for me seems more succinct and interesting compared to full-blown books or a page of rhyming text. Edgar Allan Poe is a great source of poetry. It never outstays its welcome and you always get the chance to learn a new word or two.


"The Book of Disquiet" is poetry to my soul


All poetry but "golden" authors like Pushkin, Poe, Shakespeare appeals to people with certain interests/tastes. Due to poetry "speaking to the soul" it's really hard to advice something, so, read-what-you-like applies to poetry really well

anyone up for a match on lichess?



gg bro i enjoyed the match thanks. I've been playing chess for like 4 years self taught via puzzles and books tbh.
if you're into the game there are some amazing chess books around "champion psychology -igor smirnov" is my favorite!
cheers wizbro


Yeah gg. I think I'm not ready for rapid 10 minute games yet since I end up rushing and making poor moves. My brain can't work fast enough to strategize and outpace the clock.


Any good way to learn chess rules online?

It's really exciting to FINALLY see some novel firearm/ammo designs, after 60 years of stagnation and endless AR-15, AR-18, and AK clones and derivatives. I was getting sick and tired of hearing people parrot "small arms design has plateaued, the AR-15/M4 is peak and cannot be improved upon!", and just sick in general of how fucking boring the gun industry has become. Even if these rifles don't succeed in replacing the M4, I hope they are successful enough in testing to show that, yes, there are still improvements to be made in small arms.

For any wizards thinking you missed something when you didn’t sign up you made the right call. You’ll be hanging around with 18-19 year old normgroids and forget all the recruitment propaganda real soon. When you’re sitting on a stump at 2 AM having stared at the same treelike for 2 hours youre going to think “what the fuck am I doing here”. It’s not fucking worth it even if they paid twice as much as they do. 99.5% bullshit 0.5% fun/comfy

Yes they are. I haven't been following it too closely because there's only few issues out yet and I like to binge but so far it's been more or less the same vibe you get from the original Conan The Barbarian, only the art is current year. The Savage Sword of Conan is also pretty close to CtB, which imo shouldn't be. They should aim to copy the original Savage Sword like CtB now is going for the original CtB footsteps. Going for a more gritty approach, maybe even b&w art, who knows, right now there isn't a difference between the two titles, I don't know who would be purchasing both, but there's always hardcore fans out there. All in all, both those titles feel rushed as hell and are of mediocre quality.
About new Marvel, I assume you're talking about agenda-driven identity politics.

For people with those sensibilities, Marvel is putting out a third series based on Conan's universe called Age Of Conan. It's focused on female characters like Belit and Valeria. Belit was pretty bad but I heard Valeria is decent, I'll check it for myself eventually, she was always too much of a smug swashbuckler for my taste but who knows, I'll give it a shot.

Anyone else waiting for the upcoming Dreadstar comic coming out soon? It's been 30 years since the last story came out. I'm really, really curious about this one. Jim Starlin had an accident few years ago that fucked up his hand pretty bad but apparently he recovered and this comic supposedly will come out by the end of this month. Let's hope it's good!


I remember reading an Achilles adaptation published by Marvel and written by Roy Thomas. ¿Does Marvel used to publish adaptations of classic books? ¿When they stopped published them and why?


¿The comics written by Brian K Vaughan are enjoyable? I’m looking for some apocalyptic comics, and Y: The Last Man is one of the most recommendable in almost every comic’s site. Also, are Saga and Paper succubi worth reading?


¿How many comics Elric of Melnibone have? I know Marvel published “The Dreaming City” back in the 80s, and I think DC had an Elric comic written by Neil Gaiman, along with other series based on Michael Moorcock work. I think there was an French adaptation, but I don’t know if they are only doing the first Elric book or if they are gonna do the 8.

After Reading Fingerprints of the Gods and Magicians of the Gods, I wonder if it’s possible the existence of an ancient and lost civilization like those books described. I know a couple of books who give more evidence of that. 2 books written by the Spanish investigator Javier Sierra, called: En busca de la edad de oro and La Ruta Prohibida, if you want to read them. But, the only book I know who gives a serious proof of that is Hamlet’s Mill. That makes me think if the civilization is cyclical and the event that erase a possible civilization could happen again to us. Just think about it.

¿What happened to Bob Lazar? ¿ is he still alive? An anon from the other paranormal thread said, he was the only person who nobody could ever debunk.


Graham Hancock has some interesting ideas, and it's fun to speculate about lost human history, but this dude literally says that it's possible ancient humans had the ability to make things levitate by using some forgotten technology, which is supposedly how the pyramids were built, which is bullshit. That, and he used to smoke an ungodly amount of cannabis every day while writing some of his books. He's incapable of separating his academic history/archeology studies from his ayahuasca-induced spiritual beliefs. Just because there was a mass extinction event before the last iceage does not mean it destroyed some advanced shamanistic utopia.


He's still alive. The crazy thing to me is how the UFO sightings by the US navy released a couple years ago all support his claims he made decades ago, the sighted aircraft seem to use the exact same method of manipulating gravity in order to propel it forward, technology that seems thousands of years more advanced than our own. And, the US government revealed they still have an institution dedicated to investigating these phenomenons, and they don't have an answer either. It'll be fascinating what this is going to develop into over the next century, I hope I don't die before first contact is made


The US has plenty of cryptids and ghosts. You're just not looking hard enough if you think the Us lacks paranormal mascots.


If someone wants to read real stories about voodoo zombies take a look to the books of William Seabrook, Zora Neale Hurston and Inez Wallace. The books of these writers are from the 20s and 30s. If you wanna read something more contemporary, try with Wade Davis. Author of the Snake and the Rainbow, Passage of Darkness and a BBC documentary based on the Snake and the Rainbow.

Hi. What fantasy book series are Wizards into?

I'm looking for people who can talk about these epic sagas, like Malazan the kingkiller the wheel of Time since most haven't read them.

>it's the only decent fantasy setting since it doesn't focus on pozzed politics and diversity as it's main selling point
That's not true at all. Lots of dark fantasy have leftwing political messages in them, I'd say liberals are their main fanbase actually


>That's not true at all. Lots of dark fantasy have leftwing political messages in them
>I'd say liberals are their main fanbase actually
These two statements are independent from each other given the context. Do you have any examples of these dark fantasy novels with left wing political messages in them?


¿Why Saint Leibowitz and the Wild Horse succubus is not a good as A Canticle for Leibowitz? Walter Miller should have written a book about Leibowitz before the Flame Deluge, or an anthology of stories of the abbey from the very beginning of the simplification to the Quo Peregrinatur
