One thing that interests me as a NEET are people who can dedicate long hours towards a hobby.

Does anyone know of any youtube channels, blogs, etc. where the author does this?

I'm talking about 10 hours a day and consistent.

I'm not talking about 10 hours a day, only on weekends.

I'm not talking about someone who's "passionate", but only 2-3 hours a day.

Time spent is the most important thing for me.

I really like this type of obsessive behavior.

If anyone knows anything like this please post it in this thread.

Let's not go off topic, this thread is cool.


I'm not sure why but I really love listening to recordings of internet radio from the early 00s.
It seems like there was a brief fad of niche internet radio stations, especially around 2004. It must have became pretty affordable, I'd even describe it as the 'wild west' of what would later be called 'podcasting'. Everything from Satanism to neonazi skinheads, with surprisingly interesting discussions.
Currently listening to a 9/11 24 hour live stream by Satanist recorded in 2003:
The only trouble is searching for this obscure stuff.
Any recommendations?


Neural networks are just calculus. Backprogagating a neural network is essentially just applying the chain rule to a matrix over and over again. The end result is each synapse's weight value being adjusted to reduce an error value (getting shit wrong). We make the network more efficient by changing nodes or activation functions or whatever, but really we're just modifying the structure of the function we want to find to be better suited for our data.


PiroPito does a few different things on his channel, but he puts a huge amount of work into all of them. He's most well known for making username: 666 in 2008, but he's been uploading ever since. He's got more horror videos (the latest one, My house walkthrough, has a cool making-of video), a series about his ant colony, and recently a series where he plays minecraft without any "spoilers" (watch from the beginning, just avoid the comments).


Seeing that there are people on the planet that have actually thought of the idea of doing something for 15 hours is very mind blowing concept for myself.

I can feel myself being silly but really I would study for two hours non stop and think that was such a burden and stress yet someone can do a hobby for so long?

I used to play the violin for two hours a day everyday and complained and whinged and bitched and people are out there doing it for so much longer?

Maybe my concept of time usage is wrong perhaps.

I just don’t understand how people can be so focussed on something for so long without thinking about something else or having an existential crisis or needing to lay down and waste time browsing YouTube or something like I do.

It makes me feel like a waste of space because I don’t do that but that seems really hard.

Maybe one day I can truely find a hobby I can spend many hours enjoying maybe not 15 but yeah.
Makes me think maybe I’m wasting my life lying down and watching YouTube but I enjoy it so much I feel conflicted.

I'm not supporting Jim Cornette on everything but that battle royal was abysmal goofy shit for the serious opportunity.

Based champ.


I have just watched NEW Extreme I'VE from New European Championship Wrestling on FightBox H TV channel. Russian commentators are the worst.

Exposing the business: "of course it's theatricalized but injuries occur as well and _insert wrestler's name_ decided to walk away", "look the part of the ring is caving in like it's a springboard".

Fail at naming: "warrior" was translated as "barbarian" and then the commentator himself said that it was inaccurate, "Hellvetic Warrior. In a friendly way let's call him simply Hellvetic". English shortened him as Warrior but it's not about that. "In a friendly way" is not for such genre.

Ring announcer and wrestlers on the mic were silenced. That's what happens when you hire outsiders to announce pro wrestling.


*NEW Extreme IV, FightBox HD, English commentators.

I've seen some discussion on it in the hobby tiers thread, and I have a gut feeling I'm not the only one who's practicing.

What do you do? Do you practice your art for fitness, for a feeling of security without having to wall yourself in? For other reasons?

A few people at the gym have told me I shouldn't be doing it. But they haven't been in my shoes so they wouldn't understand. I avoid telling anyone now. Most of them have quit anyway so I don't have to see their faces anymore.


That is pretty funny because I see it all the time
>yo you shouldn't do this, you will never make it, etc.
>they drop out after a few months later like the bums they really are
Martial arts are a show don't tell kind of thing. The people who make progress and become good are the people who consistently show up to train and train hard consistently.
While I haven't met anyone with your exact problems I have trained with people who had all kinds of physical and mental problems who didn't let that stop them.

Get swole is important to martial arts?


not really the core of it but being limber and fit will make it easier on you if you keep up with it and do some basic shit like eating healthy and exercises other than martial arts (even a little bit will help) you will get fit.
In your pic I would say some somewhere between day 31 and day 56 would be good unless you are thinking of going professional or into tournaments.


Martial arts are all about applying the attributes that you have in an effective way. When all else is more or less equal between two fighters, attributes like strength, size, height, cardio, flexibility, etc become big determining factors in a fight, but technique is still king. If you don’t have the technique to effectively apply your attributes then a more technical fighter will beat you every time. One of the key purposes of martial arts has always been to use technique to overcome the threat of attack from a larger, stronger opponent. If you are big and strong AND have great technique then you will be a very dangerous individual indeed.

In this thread, post .pdfs of books so other wizanons can download them and read them. I'll start off with George Orwelle's 1984.

The Little Prince

A pilot stranded in the desert awakes one morning to see, standing before him, the most extraordinary little fellow. “Please,” asks the stranger, “draw me a sheep.” And the pilot realizes that when life’s events are too difficult to understand, there is no choice but to succumb to their mysteries.. He pulls out pencil and paper… And thus begins this wise and enchanting fable that, in teaching the secret of what is really important in life, has changed forever the world for its readers.

Movies you watched, plan to watch, recommend, don't recommend, etc. Remember to use spoilers when applicable. Thank you.


I'm planning to watch this. People have been talking a lot of positive things about it. I saw the trailer and it doesn't really seem like my cup of tea but the it's getting so many praising reviews I'm considering it. Anyone here watched it?

I really don't like that movie and I think it's overrated.


BAD TASTE! peter jacksons first flic…
there is nothing out there that is as good now…


Lately I watched the Bleach movie on netflix.I am a big fan of Netflix and AMC channels. But I for watching stream online I use vpn tool from Veepn.cоm because in my place Netflix tv banned


piece of shit of a movie, really tired of this artsy type of films. Not enjoyable and no mature thoughts put into it.


it's very enjoyable if you appreciate the deadpan humour and commentary on modern romantic relationships, but it's not a film for everyone

Anyone here grow mushrooms or take them before?

I remember posting back on /wiz/ about a year ago about my experience with mushrooms and people were really interested. Though that time I bought them off the darknet markets, this time I am growing them. First image is my current grow, second image is not mine but where they will be likely be within 5 days, 3rd image is the innoculated jars.

Essentially what you do is sterilise brown rice flour (BRF) in a small masonry jar by way of pressure cooker. You then take the sterilise jars out, add psilocybin mushroom spores which can be bought online from USA in the clearnet no trouble as you just say they're for microscopy purposes.

Once you colonise the jars with spores you keep them warm and away from sunlight for two weeks. Inside the jars the spores will create mycelium and eventually turn the entire jar into a big fungi mass. You take this out, place it in a terrarium and keep the humidity high and the light low and the mushrooms come out within a week (where I am at the moment).

Anyone growing large-scale w/o the prebuild growboxes, I think this could be quite funny

You guys ever get sad that the most Wizardly hobby of all time is also one of the most expensive? It costs 2.5 Million Euro to enter the Vendee Globe but I feel like true wizards would be great at it. I have sailing certifications and its not that hard but of course the documentary is going to make it look as harrowing as possible.

I just think its hilarious when he starts talking about the hardest part being away from friends and family for 6 months by yourself, and having to eat food out of ration packs that's actually way better than most of the stuff we eat already. He has electricity and access to a computer the entire time, and satellite internet for much of the time.


If you really did want to do something like that wouldn't you try starting out on shorter races first?


>The Vendée Globe is a single-handed (solo) non-stop yacht race around the world without assistance.

how is yacht racing the most wizardly hobby?

that's retarded as hell. something purely done on computers is probably the most wizardly, like gaming


It’s wizardly because you truly spend a shitload of time in isolation and apparently thats the hardest part. I know I already spend almost all of my time alone so if thats whats supposed to be the most challenging about it, shit. Fine by me. Though I guess isolation doesn’t necessarily mean wizardlyness.

Anyone here use Linux for fun and profit?

I'm currently running debian with dwm as my window manager. I was curious to see what all the hubbub was about when it comes to minimalism and I gotta say I like some things about it. However, I'm still not fully convinced it's the end all be all of desktop computing or anything. There are still plenty of programs I like to use that are considered "bloated" by true minimalists.

Overall I'm more productive on my Linux system than I am on my Windows system. It feels good to know all the keyboard shortcuts in my system and be able to program new ones quickly and easily through config.h, and to be able to launch many programs near instantaneously. And the tiling and workspaces? It's absolutely gorgeous. I love having control of where everything goes without having to much about with window borders. I love having a group of programs open dedicated to performing a certain task, and then being able to instantly switch to another group of programs by just pressing alt+[num].

How do yo accidentally wipe a hard drive? I hope you didn't loose anything important.

Also as someone that's been using dwm for just over a year, don't bother with tiling window managers for machines (or users) that you don't plan to do work with. Tiling windows are annoying as fuck if you wanna play games and shitpost~ plus it's nice having a different user and environment for work/play as it stops you from procrastinating

As far as systemd goes, I don't really have strong opinions, but most of my machines (excluding desktop) run systemd and there doesn't seem to be issues. I do think other init systems are easier to understand, and are easier to fix when problems arise however.
It just blows that pulseaudio doesn't work without it, ALSA is good, but if you want to record stuff you have to play around with jack and ALSA loopback devices which is a huge pain ._.


Andrew the Wizard


Really 'yaoi' looking resource heavy de. i3wm and other tiling managers are superior to any desktop environment
Those distros are total garbage. Just use Debian, well tested, stable, uses apt, no useless additional software/configuration in the basic install and it also works out of the box.


>'yaoi' looking
what does that even mean


Yaoi means gay in the 'best foreign language'

Recently I've been getting into photography. I've found that after doing so, I perceive moments in different ways. Things simultaneously seem more transient, yet more permanent. It's a sensation that's difficult to describe, except to say that I am more 'aware' of the moments around me. For obvious reasons I have avoided urban areas, but in terms of landscapes and natural shots, it is quite peaceful.

Any photography hobbyists here?



Next time check for preexisting threads on the same subject please.


I know there are already a bunch of movie, tv, cartoon threads. But this thread serves a specific purpose of entertaining ADHD Wizos with clips and trailers that can be enjoyed on their own without investing the time.

I just don't feel like investing 2 hours for a film, or even more for a TV series. I just like killing time browsing around youtube going clip to clip. I feel like I get a good feel for the film just by watching a few clips.

I'll start with this classic trailer


>A lot of the best trailers tell a little story within itself - here we see sadsack Ben Stiller, who wants so much more out of life, discovering that he can do that. And there's a nice indie-type song over the whole thing (the kind where people are just saying "HEY" for no discernable reason every now and then) and everything looks so heartfelt and personal and amazing. The actual film is pretty weird and bad - and is mostly notable for having the most (and most intrusive) ad placement for a movie in recent memory.

Trailers and clips from films, TV, cartoons that can be enjoyed on their own without context

Man that was the best Wiz-related film I ever saw. I like how unlike in other "loser films" it doesn't revolve around him being a crab, and in fact succubi play no role at all. Not that hes asexual, his mom calls out all his fapping. But its all about his obsessive fandom that gives meaning to his life. And even though sports isn't something I relate to, I can relate to admiring heroes in a fantasy setting who are action chads.

I forget how I heard about this film, as normally I wouldn't give a shit about sports films. I forgot how I knew this would be a film about losers. Maybe it was posted on one of the /hob/ movie threads before?


idk about the rest of the series, but this is the best opening scene to a TV series I've ever seen


Jackie chan has a wizbrother, will he give up on him?


every golden harvest production from the 80s is a great watch


Thanks a lot fellow wiz will check this film out.
