Been wageslaving for a year and I managed to build my first half decent PC with some of the money I saved up. Any other anons enjoy this?

I used:
Ryzen 5 2600, ASUS ROG x470 mini itx, 16gb of RAM, and an rx590. Hopefully should last me 4 or 5 years since I plan to go NEET for awhile again soon.

Yes I harvest wild chives and garlic. The garlic is quite interesting as you can either dig up the roots and get the garlic bulb, or you can wait until august when the garlic flowers. Each flower turns into 20+ small kernels of garlic. I discovered these plants years ago by accident while hiking, and now they are a regular part of my died. Both the garlic and chives typically grow near streams and creeks in clay soil.

Been a while since I watched something Russian.

Movie is called Ginger's Tale (2020)
Story was a bit of a mess but the animation was mostly nice. Better then I expected but not really a great film mostly due to the writing and it just being all over the place when it came to just about everything.
I wonder if I will even remember watching this movie a year or two from now. It just doesn't feel like it left any lasting impression on me beside maybe a few ideas from it would be cool to add in a D&D campaign or something.

Whatever, like I said, I ain't good at reviewing things and besides this thread is just about done.
Check it out if you want to see what the Russians are up to when it comes to feature length animation I guess, or just bored and in the mood for something a little different.

I've been watching WWE, AEW, and started watching Impact. WWE's angles are too predictable and they screwed over a lot of people so Roman could be champ and dominate the scene and with AEW I just don't really like Jon Moxley or any of the people presented as faces and the Dark Order just seems corny as hell.

I'm also watching the ROH Pure Tournament since even though it's just what's left over after WWE raided it to put people on NXT, it's been good so far.

I'm such a mark that I now also watch NJPW. Ugh.

Wrestling in 2020 is pretty bad. WWE is dead, AEW seemed promising, but it's corny and goofy as fuck, Impact is a relic from the 2000's, and Japanese feds are either really boring or super cringy.


I've been watching wrestling ever since I was a kid, and these modern shows have made me realize that I'm not really that interested in it anymore. Everything has been done, there's no new stars no engaging characters or entertaining stories, it's just tired and old now. I tried to like Indy wrestling, but they're so cheesy and unprofessional looking that it kind of took me out of it: seeing skinny fat dorks doing cosplay and flips isn't wrestling, that's cringe.

kayfabe is also a big reason I can't stand modern wrestling, seeing someone like for example, Braun, crying about being bullied or shilling for make a wish, when he's supposed to be a monster, just ruins him in my eyes.

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.

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

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.

Any one else have horror stuff as a hobby? Like collecting weird pictures, reading creepy stories, listening to paranormal podcasts and watching horror films? I find myself drawn to it and I think it counts as a hobby if it's something you're invested in. Sort of like a modern folklore.

Crucifax is basically a dark retelling of the Hamelin Flautist, and a rant against the scholar system, which doesn’t let the counselors help the students. Mace, the villain of the novel, offers the teenagers the things they want, even if that could kill them. The story begins after all of the teenagers of San Fernando Valley have the felling of something dreadful will happen. It is a good example of 80s horror, the scene with mace in the sewers has to be the most disgusting thing I ever read in my horror file. The novel talks about things like teenagers problems, real problems like drug addiction, teenage pregnancy, Incest (Jeff wants to fucks his sister, even if he knows that’s disgusting) but, Ray Garton is not justifying it like George R. R. Martin. And real ways to help young people with problems like that.

I really liked “The Events at Poroth Farm” but, I couldn’t stand the protagonist. A college slacker who wants to fuck everything of feminine sex, who is also procrastinating an essay about the history of horror. Sarr and his mother deserve more protagonism, they were the only likable characters, especially his mother. She knew something bad was going to happen since she was a succubus. If you are looking for a Novel were the evil and the knowledge, with echoes of Lovecraft, can be found in the streets, read this.

I had plans for writing this elaborate fanfiction, or fancomic, after being inspired by Paper Mario: The Origami King. Alas, the same uncontrollably convoluted anxiety that probably killed Livecorpse (and me too if I hadn't fled the country sooner) has once again bested me, even if it was by a fraction and less dramatic.

I leave the entire finished plot here for anyone's interests, be they to genuinely adapt it, be inspired by it, or do what "great artists" do (for good or bad, it's nothing but deja vu to me anymore).

Cheers.
