Post youtube channels that are clearly made by a wiz, NEET or hikkis, and made for the same demographics and not for normies.

Isn't this guy in a relationship with a tranny?


There was this one quirky seemingly kind-hearted caucasian woodsman in his 30s where he would discuss his social/relationships issues while innawoods, trails, by a night campfire. Fairly certain he deleted his YouTube channel. I really miss his content…


You sound like a fag, not gonna lie


>not gonna lie
Can't even ditch the habitually nigger vernacular when typing on an imageboard… Sad!


I will always shill Mr. Daggers.

As the several traveling threads prove, there are plenty of wizards who are curious about the world. Here, we talk about our traveling wishes and interests in a more abstract and general sense. What countries have you visited? What were your experiences? What countries are you curious about visiting and why? Any particular place you'd avoid like the plague? It doesn't matter if your traveling ideas are realistic or not, just share what interests you.

I was personally always more intrested in the more obscure and mysterious places that you never see on TV, and how people live there. Some islands in the middle of nowhere, certain African countries with an unremarkable present but a cool history, the mountain villages of Tibet, stuff like that. I've travelled around Europe a bit and was shocked how big a difference in culture there is between countries so close by, in the countless details of culture, food, architecture, people's temperament, and so on. I'm hoping to save up enough for a trip to Asia and/or Africa. There's a lot to experience out there.

>How many clothes do you pack?
Not a lot. Two pairs of underwear is plenty regardless of the length of the trip.

I cycled to the Black Sea in Ukraine and back in August/September. Took me six weeks. I also passed through every single district of Moldova along the way, including Transnistria.

very cool anon, looking forward to your next update

Hanoi is an interesting city. Feels denser and more claustrophobic than Bangkok. As with Phnom Penh, you can see the French influence. However, Vietnam is far wealthier than Cambodia.

It is the first openly self described socialist state I have been to. Lots of communist flags but also lots of foreign corporations and private enterprise is a ok.

Really interesting museums and things relating to the French colonial days as well as the American-Vietnam War.

Don't worry about it, you're really not missing anything.
Went to London and felt the same dread I feel about large cities in my own country.
Sure seeing the Queen's guards in person was kinda fun I guess. But it sure wasn't worth the time and money.

Normies will tell you to travel to "broaden your perspective". This is a lie, what are you suppose to learn from sightseeing in a foreign country for a week? You're better off picking up a new hobby.

Pipe tobacco is a hobby, right? There's the element of collecting pipes and trying various blends, which resembles wine tasting in how elaborately some people talk about them. Any wiz pipe smokers here? Any favourite blends you'd recommend? Show me your wizpipe(s) (no homo).

Here's my pipe and some tobacco I'm currently smoking. The one in the tin is Old Gowrie

> its not about how long you live its about your quality of life
exactly this is why you don't smoke at all especially not tobacco. It's as much a hobby as watching paint dry.


>I do drugs because I can't take life without pussy
that's pretty much this post


what i was only addressing the single vs married question. i dont even smoke or drink. it doesnt make sense what you said anyway because heaps of sexhavers smoke and do drugs, way more than wizards. they're doing it because they can't take life even with poon? what?


Your point implies that the anguish of not having a partner is diminished by your hobby. You arbitrarily set up romantic partnership as a form of ultimate wellbeing, that I can only conclude was derived from your own yearnings, to the point of you producing an "unequivocal" answer. It's unequivocal only in relation to your own mental state at best.


youre discussing something different that im not. its ok. its not easy to always be understood. i didnt do what you said either, you would do well to learn the difference between implication and inference. its as though you are projecting a bunch of stuff onto me its strange kind of but that's ok too. most people here are going to be a little messed up at least.

For maximum smoothness you can use a translator (picrel not fully translated) and after some time the auto translated and the English subtitle will get cached and automatically turn on when available. It's good enough to the point I lost the motivation to learn Japanese.



>what language are you learning
>what tools do you use to learn it
netflix,music and google translate
im now b2 and i consider myself pretty fluent this is the easiest and the most enjoyable way to learn languages


I learn japanese and I use https://jpdb.io/ to learn it. I also used anki for one year but jpdb is better since you automatically learn the words from a vast ressource of built-in decks from various medium:
Live action
Visual novels
Video games
Web novels
Books (non-fiction)
YouTube videos
Audio works


read the book, fluent forever by gabriel wyner(sp?) will help a lot.

different language require some different approach, you generally get good return on building vocabulary though.

biggest mistake people do trying to learn a language is they try to learn by latching onto their native language with those ideas, words, thoughts. you need to build an entirely new language from the ground up, that means not associating your new language words to your old language words, you need an intermediary, a translation and interpretation layer far more powerful for the mind, that is imagery and emotion. you need to build your language up from thinking the target language word, and first thing that comes into your mind are images, and not the translated meaning in your native tongue. that is the crux and major stumbling block/paradigm shift required to be proper successful and where most fail with their language learning.

find a movie you know really well, all the dialogue, get the sub and dub for it, play it in background or on another screen. listen to music in that target language, watch videos. have an actual physical good dictionary for that language next to you, do this as a habit you hear a word, you randomly open up and try find it, try find what it means.

language acquisition is making all these little easy habits that add up and require almost no effort, for years, culminating into almost effortless. or you can train hard all out for a couple weeks.months then forget about it and never pick it up again. i tried both, i made the mistakes, and learned, then got better. maybe this can help you if you try it. that book fluent forever check it out.

any wizards into chess too?
it's quite interesting with its unlimited options. a way to escape the bitter reality, as well.
what's your elo rating?
your favorite openings with white and black pieces?
how much time do you dedicate for chess usually?

play longer
i was 900 a year ago
but when i play longer (= think more) i'm 1000.
i'm likely 500 now.


Queen takes knight forcing rook takes queen. White rook takes black rook mate


idk if its right or wrong as I am new to chess and only 700 elo but what if bishop takes knight then if king moves then he loses the rook or if it captures the bishop then rook can move horizontally to g6 and then king will be in check then you can move your rook to g8 and then black's rook can only move horizontally as its own pawn is blocking it from moving vertically so it has to capture that rook which you can take with the pawn and promote it to queen.


Rg7, Qf6, Qg5 if king captures bishop idk the moves if king moves to the corner of the board

I am new to the subject of visual art. I was struck by the intensity of the work of an artist called Ilya Repin. I don't know what it is about his work; it just captivates my imagination.

Post art which captivates your imagination.

Since Ilya Repin and Roerich have already been mentioned, my other favourite artist of the twentieth century has to be Andrew Wyeth. His lonely and austere regional portrayals of early settler American life really strike a note with me.

Also, wonderful thread.

Started getting into this very recently after watching some videos about it on YouTube. I then bought some Sibley and Roger Tory field guides and a Nikon M5 Monarch Binos. Was wondering if there is anyone else who enjoys doing this as well. Seems like a friendly hobby for everyone and its gets you outside and "touching grass".

thanks for the advice ill get a local field guide


I like staring at animals in general, but not too much, because i don't want to be rude.


I stare until they submit or confront me.


just get a sibley or peterson field guide that is located wherever you are.


I want to get more into this hobby. I want to try and start enjoying my life in isolation. I always felt too guilty to even try but I realize this is unhealthy and massively limiting. I felt like the only excuse I could give my parents was that I was too depressed to handle wage slaving, which is true, but if they see me enjoying myself doing things they won't believe I am too depressed to handle wage slaving and will start pressuring me to slave again. This happens any time I show any hints of life so I mostly just stay in my room all day, but this is no way to live. I want to go out and start camping, although I would sleep in my car I think and try and go on some hikes and find some birds. I would also like to get a canoe and go birding on water as that is a comfy way to do it, but they are expensive. Even building one myself would be expensive just because long pieces of wood are expensive and hard to find and I don't think I could do it without a table saw. I have a circular saw but for doing the gunwales it would be too difficult to slice all that length.


who wants to create a trading card game with me? I hope you know how to draw, I don't know how to draw, and we must design the cards too ahaha

Use AI art like these guys: https://scryfall.com/sets/sld


You should make a card-based Choose Your Own Adventure instead.


>hey can you make this thing for me for no money while I take all the credit despite not really doing anything

I got my own projects I am working on.
Pay me or do it yourself.


Sure I'll trade credit card info with you guys. You first


That sounds like it could be an interesting idea.

I want to read more comics/mangas where the main characters are outcasts/neets/autists with no social skills, which ones do you know?


Hellboy? He's not so much awkward as he is stoic and accepting of how he'll never fit in and find real love. not in the movies though


welcome to the nhk
steins gate (anime or vn better)
re zero
Hyouryuu Net Cafe (the mc is a normalfag but there are otaku loser characters in it)
Koroshiya (honestly a 10/10 mc is a bullied virgin who becomes a killing machine)
Ressentiment (mc is basically a wizard, he's never had a gf but basically wastes all his money on fucking prostitutes but ends up getting a vr waifu)
Ajin (mc is a typical loser who is only good at studying)
Dead Tube (mc is a loser virgin doesn't really care about that since he's a gore fetishist)
Holyland (hikkimori mc)
Mushoku tensei (mc is a virgin neet who gets reincarnated and is an actually good isekai)
Honestly most manga have pretty loserish main characters, you just have to look for seinen ones


Strongest Man Kurosawa
Onani Master Kurosawa, although the ending is a very normalfag
March Comes in Like a Lion
Koi Kaze (be warned it's about a brother-sister relationship with a large age gap but I found the protagonist very relatable)
Berserk to a large extent

also seconding recommendations for NHK and Ressentiment if you haven't read them, you need to.



Ongezellig if you don't mind dutch language.

I'm on the hunt for new documentaries to watch. I like the ones about about marginal, eccentric people. Here's a list of the ones I quite like in that niche. If you know any not on this list please let me know.

Realms of the Unreal
A documentary on Henry Darger, visionary artist, janitor, and novelist. 10/10

An intimate portrait of controversial cartoonist Robert Crumb and his traumatized family. 10/10

American Movie
Documentary about an aspiring filmmaker's attempts to finance his dream project by finally completing the low-budget horror film he abandoned years before. 10/10

Alone in the Wilderness (2004)
In 1968, one man films his attempt to build a cabin and live in the Alaskan wilderness. He goes weeks or months at a time without human contact. 7/10 I found this one a little tedious but I guess that's the point. Still, doesn't make for a very entertaining watch.

Post too long. Click here to view the full text.


Forgot about this one https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1633175/?ref_=tt_sims_tt_t_9
This documentary follows a group of homeless men who have combined bottle picking with the extreme sport of racing shopping carts. I remember I watched this one but didn't think much of it. It's on YT if you're interested


File: 1704218597894.png (753.82 KB, 569x844, 569:844, 1.png) ImgOps iqdb

As I prepare myself to sit down and read the rest of the first run of Uncanny X-Men (>>66822) I decided to watch a documentary on Chris Claremont. It's fitting as I'm at the later period of his writing for the series and went through all his major storylines at this point. If you like comics and have a fondness for the transitional period between bronze age and modern age in comics (for example if you know who Jim Shooter is) chances are you'll like this documentary.

It's a decent way to spend 70 minutes. I think it played a little too much on the safe side of things, not talking about anything as thoroughly as I would've liked, regardless, it's fun to hear the creators talking about a time nobody really gave a shit about comic books and they could do whatever they wanted and you as the reader knew this shit was totally within your domain before the money people and the cool kids came in and made it their own.

And you can watch it for free on this link. If you do let me know what you think. It would be nice if we had more than 2 posters on /hob/.



Big Al, one of the main guys featured in this documentary is now wheelchair bound. One might say fate has a twisted sense of humor.
