guy from gamer documentary has a youtube channel where he talks about different things roleplaying
geocaching channel that doesn't cater to families

Most channels I used to follow are dead, but this thread gave me some new things to check out.



Fuck off back to /b/ and stay there. Your cartoon spam is not funny.


looking for more comfy let's play channels like this


Did this guys channel get removed for a while? There seems to be some videos missing.

What's fajita seasonings?


Just the typical spices that are used in fajitas. Salt, black pepper, garlic powder, cumin, and perhaps some chili powder (cayenne / paprika are nice).


when I run out of real cheese I use that grated parmesan crap in bottle you shake out on stuff and it's not a bad substitute, it melts decently well on burritos if I nuke them

this thread ran for a long time

I've made it a few times. I wait 3 weeks until its fully mature. First it gets very acidic then it balances out. Already the brine and the dry salty pieces of cabbage taste good.

I'm thinking about earning money through vending machines. Let's start a thread about vending machines, from hobbyists to those that profit from them.


You can't. They're all owned by the big industry and no one's going to put your machines in place over a big companies.


Where do you live that this is true? I live in the third world and an acquaintance claims he has a vending machine gig that earns him roughly 30 USD a month


30 USD is chump change. And a third world country is likely to see the machine stolen from isn't it?


Vending machines are not a hobby and no one puts them up as a hobby.
You are asking about job advice which is by default not a hobby.

Why did you think it was remotely reasonable to put this thread here instead of lounge?


See what this person says about vending machine gigs.


"Chump change". Its by no means a job, much less a way to earn a living.

Also I'm sure there must be people into vending machines as a hobby just like there are train hobbyists or whatever that thing is called


Post good (spoken) books in this thread.

I'll start with the Meditations of Marcus Aurelius. Such a good narration.

Listened to over two hours Thus Spoke Zarathustra and had to tap out.

I don't know anything about Nietzsche's personal life but it is very clear he is overcompensating though a idealized version of the perfect man. The problem being I think he is a deeply dysfunctional person who probably never actually had strong male role models in his life and was also likely domineered in his formative years by dysfunctional succubi. So his vision of his "superman" is warped.
The book also feels like a "militant" atheist writing their own version of a Bible as a big cope, with a similar abandonment of reason.

Do yourself a favor and read Ayn Rand's work if you want individualistic Supermen who go on absurdly long speeches.
Nietzsche confuses poison for medicine in the work Thus Spoke Zarathustra.
I can't recommend it.



Really good. I think I must make a effort to listen to more gothic horror from the period.

Any recommendations of other gothic horror tales are most welcome. I think I will make a month of it in tribute to the season.


The Invisible Man

I found it mostly boring to be honest. I am a bit disappointed. It isn't badly written or anything, just mostly uninteresting to me. It picks up a bit near the end but by then I am already mentally checked out to the point of not really caring.
Would have been better if it was novella or short story length. Far too much boring fluff and unnecessary detail.


Finally finished Queen of the Damned.
Great book though not my favorite of the vampire chronicles (which is The Vampire Lestat).

SOOOOOOOOO much better then the movie in every way. There is no comparison at all.
Not sure if I should keep going deeper into the chronicles or if I have already read/heard the best it has the offer and should just quit while I am ahead. At this point I feel quite satisfied with how everything has wrapped up and don't even feel the need to possibly spoil it if the other books aren't as good. I don't want to lose that "magic".

That and I am getting a little tired of vampires.
Anyway here are the links for the version I listened to.
Great narration, the VA does a impeccable job even if the overall audio quality isn't great.

part 1
part 2
part 3

Not sure how long they will stay up on youtube but for now they are up to be enjoyed.


God this book was boring.
While I definitely enjoyed the metamorphosis, the trial was both boring and it's pace frustrating.

I really can't recommend it.

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.

What do you do when you have no interest in your current hobbies but want to some hobby time?

Can we have a thread about new and interesting hobbies you discover even if you don't do them?
1 post omitted. Click reply to view.


I just looked through hobby lists for years until I had a handful that clicked with me. Not that it matters much since they're generic but I think in order to really do them you have to romanticize them a bit to yourself otherwise they won't have that magic. Maybe that's just me though.


Any suggestions where? Top 50 hobbies lists are worthless.


Reddit, discord, forums, twitch, youtube etc. Depending on the hobby, certain sites are better than others, for instance, reddit is much better at selecting meme content than serious, long-form discussion, but it can serve as aa hub for links to different communities and resources. Discord can be nice when you find a small, niche community and its quality usually drops the more people join. Forums are the best for long-form, serious discussion, as threads are expected to stay a long time and people are expected to put in at least a minimal amount of effort when writing a reply (although, this doesn't stop normalfags from inflating their post count with one liner "thanks, this is great" filler). Twitch and youtube communities always organize around a particular content creator, so they usually turn out to be more about the creator than the content.

Twitch has a lot of people streaming themselves doing a particular hobby, like drawing or japanese printmaking. I like browsing through Science & Technology section on twitch and find these small channels that stream programming. Sometimes I watch, sometimes I just have it in the background while I work on my own stuff.


>Top 50 hobbies lists are worthless.
Every hobby will have various subcultures and subdomains within it. It's up to you to explore and find these things because for some they're not just out there for the taking.

>Le suicide râté de Chamfort (Chamfort's Failed Suicide)

Unable to tolerate the prospect of being imprisoned once more, in September 1793 he locked himself into his office and shot himself in the face. The pistol malfunctioned and he did not die even though he shot off his nose and part of his jaw. He then repeatedly stabbed his neck with a paper cutter, but failed to cut an artery. He finally used the paper cutter to stab himself in the chest. He dictated to those who came to arrest him the well-known declaration Moi, Sebastien-Roch Nicolas de Chamfort, déclare avoir voulu mourir en homme libre plutôt que d'être reconduit en esclave dans une maison d'arrêt ("I, Sebastien-Roch Nicolas de Chamfort, hereby declare my wish to die a free man rather than to continue to live as a slave in a prison") which he signed in a firm hand and in his own blood. His butler found him unconscious in a pool of blood. From then until his death in Paris the following year, he suffered intensely and was attended to by a gendarme, whom he paid a crown a day.


>Soon after the attempted suicide, Pierre-Louis Ginguené, a close friend of Chamfort and his first biographer, arrived at the house. While Chamfort was dictating his last wishes, he sat up and said: "What can you expect? That's what it is to be clumsy with one's hands. One never manages to do anything successfully, even killing oneself."

>In studying the ills of nature, one acquires a contempt for death. In studying the ills of society, one acquires a contempt for life.

>Living is an ailment which is relieved every sixteen hours by sleep. A palliative. Death is the cure.

>Society, which is called the world, is nothing but the contention of a thousand petty interests, an eternal conflict of all the vanities that cross each other, strike against each other, are wounded and humiliated by each other in turn, and expiate on the morrow, in the bitterness of defeat, the triumph of the day before.


>nothing but the contention of a thousand petty interests
Beautifully, put. Although, it is ironic/contradictory to say. I wonder if this writer is aware that his own writing is a petty interest? Or perhaps my reading of his writing interesting me in a petty way? I suspect the contamination of schizophrenia.


I haven't watched all of this walking tour of Montmartre yet, but so far I like it. He even has captions at the bottom pointing out things of interest. I found another video of Monmartre that was more moody and wizardly, in the sense that it was filmed on a cloudy autumn day, but the camera work wasn't great and made me sick.

Do you have any plays on the market?
What companies are you investing in?
Questions about how it all works?
Wanting to gamble and lose it all?
Here is the thread for all things related to capitalistic degeneracy.


I want to because I always hear stories of easy money, but I just know I'll be one of the people who lose it all on the stock market.


We already have a stock market thread, wiz.

I love nature! No people, only birds chirping and trees rustling when the wind blowing through them.
Sometimes a lonely creek flowing humbly, making it's way towards the river.
2020 sucked for hiking I hope I can go again this year.

I live near there too haha. We have a lot of beautiful nature. Just stay out the cities!!


Not hiking necessarily, but I love walks. Especially night ones in the spring/summer. There's something comforting about being able to walk around with little to no people around you, just looking at nature or the landscape.

Woke up this morning at 6 am full of energy. Decided to walk somewhere I never have before. Ended up walking 8 miles with my dog. We left while it was dark. We went on a path that goes a bit out of town and along a river. Saw very few people in the early hours, nice. Found trails for horse riding. Heard tons of different types of birds. When I came out the other end of the trail and came back into town I was high up looking down at it.

Walked 2 later on. Used over 2000 calories walking today. Maybe I'll walk 3-5 more before bed if it feels right.

I also walked 10 miles two days ago. I feel this spring I'll be on long walks every day again.

Yup. They are a youth legend


I can't afford to buy things like Lego, but I'll give you a bump


If you can't afford it, you can always simulate it. Lego Digital Designer gives you all the standard and many special pieces to build your own kits with. Used to be you could design something, or create a digital catalogue of pieces with it, and then order your creation from Lego and it would come packed with automatically generated instructions and a full colour box. It was pricey as all hell though and the service has long since been discontinued.


I played with that or something similar as a kid but it's pointless when it's not real. You need the tactile sensation of putting the pieces together and then having a physical object to display when you're done. The graphics in that are shit too, real Lego builds can be beautiful.


Any good Lego youtube channels worth checking out?
