I didn't notice the last one is on auto-sage.

Finally finished Thus Spoke Zarathustra. Took me a year I think to get to end of it, this isn't the kind of book you can read normally, I had to stop to take breaks, sometimes I put it down for months. It isn't about comprehension, I understood what Nietzsche was saying in most cases. It is the lyrical form that annoyed me, lots of poems and songs in this one.
As for what I read: I agree and disagree. There are things which he hit spot on, like pity being harmful and focusing on this life on Earth instead of nonsensical tales about after lives. But the idea of eternal recurrence is just plain idiotic, I think it stems from Christianity still or other oriental religions, death is the end of it and that's all - no matter how you try to name it: Heaven, reincarnation or eternal recurrence it is just a pathetic hope that death isn't final. Actually, Nietzsche's thought process reminds me of Christianity in many ways, ironically: like praising suffering, not being content with hedonism, the idea that life is eternal, the Overman basically just replacing God etc.etc. Seems like a twisted and "negative form" of Christianity. Well, that is just my own two cents. I'm no expert on philosophy.

He uses a lot of unnecessarily arcane words, so don't beat yourself up about not knowing them. I love the book, but I don't like his sometimes clunky, overwraught writing style. It really got in the way of the excellent content, especially the second and third time I read it.


I think the word you're looking for is archaic.

Finished reading Essays in Idleness and Hojoki.
The book is a combination of 2 works, one by Kamo no Chōmei, a monk who became a hermit and lived in a small hut for the rest of his life, and one by Yoshida Kenkō, also a Buddhist monk but not a recluse.
I went in expecting to relate with Chōmei's Hojoki, but actually found Kenkō's Essays in Idleness much more enjoyable. Covers a wide range of topics like Buddhist teachings, transience, aesthetics, and various anecdotes from history and personal experience. Many echo the style of the anecdotes in the Zhuangzi.

Currently reading this and there are some uncomfortable truths that are making it difficult to read. I. Thought it would be a meme book but it isn't.

It is a little early to say it succeeded, as the movie hasn't even come out yet.
At least wait until the opening weeks numbers come back.


I really hate black bars wasting my precious screen space in either width or height. The purists want the creator's original intent and hate cropping, and their complaints get all the press. But for casuals like me, we just want it to look nice on the big screens we paid for


When it is poorly cropped it cuts out content, looks bad, and yeah it disrupts the creator's intent.

Also the fans are the ones that should be listened to because they both spend the most money on the thing and spend most consistently.


I mean for me when I 1st got Netflix, the films were almost unwatchable to me with the black bars. Since it seems like most studios are lazy anyway and just cut out the edges. Simplest thing to satisfy everyone would just be to offer both options. They have unlimited server space anyway.


I actually agree with you that the best solution is to offer both when possible.

Can we have a thread to share, analyze and discuss paintings?

I want to know more about this world. After reading Schopenhauer's brilliant work (The World as Will and Representation) I've developed a deep respect for art and artists that I didn't have before and I want to know more about this world.

Feel free to share and talk about your favorite artists and what they mean to you.

If I were to start collecting digital artwork on a flash drive, how should I go about organizing it?


I’d say genre>artist>date of creation

btw I just tried this again with beef instead of chicken, and wild rice instead of white rice. The flavor was non existent.

I bought something called "california chili peppers" for my chili. The things are waxy, non spicy and flavorless. Even after boiling them they still had the consistency of plastic and were tough to chew. But should've known better than to buy anything with that evil shithole's name on it.

I think I'll try "japanese red peppers" next. Nothing with japan on it has ever failed me.

what language are you learning and what tools do you use to learn it?

I would say learn the writing and reading from books, but use an all oral/audio way of learning to produce the sounds. Pimsleur is a good resource, because it teaches you to listen and pronounce, then you can use that to augment the writing that you are reading.

i only learn 20 minutes of japanese a day

i am a lazy japanese learner. i know enough to read yotsuba using the english translation as a guy



as a guide*


Have you heard about the Yotsuba reading pack?


I'm learning German and Spanish. I speak both at an intermediate level, so now I'm working on my listening comprehension by watching videos and listening to podcasts in those languages.


For those with a interest in the darker side of humanity this thread is for you.
Everything true crime (videos, documentaries, books, speculation and discussion, etc.) and real life mystery related is welcome.

One caveat is that paranormal related stuff usually belongs elsewhere such as the Nope thread. Same with fiction and creepypasta stuff, doesn't belong in this thread. It is for things that actually happened in the real world.

Somebody else interested in Adam Lanza? I've been reading about him these days and there's a lot of interesting stuff. There's info about a book he wrote as a homework when he was 12 years old: its full of pretty disturbing violence. For some reason depictions of violence done by children are always weirder and more disturbing than anything written by an adult. Also, he had a strange relation with pedophilia. This is particularly interesting regarding the target he choose. I find his life to be pretty interesting and wizardly.

I contemplated on which board to post this and ultimately decided I'll do it on /hob/ this time, as it seems to me that collecting and enjoying pictures of houses, towns, areas, natural scenes etc., is in fact kind of a hobby.

So post pictures that you associate with comfyness. I personally have a thing for forest cabins and quaint little town streets.

testing out unity's probuilder, it's like a simple 3d modeler built into unity. it has a lot of similarity to sketchup and seems to work ok for building prefabs and modular stuff. this isn't for anything, just learning how it works. i think it's pretty cool. the limitations aren't such a big deal because of how fast and easy it is being built into unity


I am interested in 3D modeling and web developing. I want to create some websites with 3D interface design. Plus in my project I want to use saac product like here https://spdload.com/blog/what-is-saas-product/

I've been learning french since january of this year, i've been told i'm doing well but i think the fact that french is very close to my native language helped me a lot
Fuck this shit


How can you learn a foreign language or be incentivized to do so, if you're too socially awkward to ever even talk with anyone anyways?


I learned english just because a lot of stuff on the internet is in english. I never planned to talk to native english speakers, my english speaking skills are horrible, awful accent. Being able to read, write, and hear(understand what people are saying) is enough. Learned spanish because it's the second most spoken language in the world or smth like that. Planning to learn chinese for the exact same reason, and to learn japanese for the japanese internet and media. French and german would be nice to learn too. No plans on actually speaking any of those with my mouth.


Being "incentivized" is not a problem to me, language learning is honestly fun
And as >>50882 said talking with native speakers is not my main objective
I too learned english as a second language, and although i can read, write and listen without difficulty i would probably be awkward as fuck talking and my pronunciation is shit since i've rarely if ever had occasion to actually speak it
