Lets have a thread discussing business, corporations , companies and all aspects around them. Including news, mergers, rumors, history and legal cases.

I found the whole saga of movie pass interesting, although its largely old news now.

If you don't like what I said just hide it and don't respond. I mean It was more of a sidethought. Which occured to me.
I don't like people who are beyond have it better to lecture me on life. Yeah maybe this is okay. Pro business vidya should be here just as anti business. I just find people born billionaires lecturing me about wonders of capitalism funny.
I can't take such videos seriously. Sometimes I feel I can't take a lot of people seriously. Americans for example more or less got the generous side of capitalism, due to the sheer fact of them being the victors of ww2 and were relatively untouched by the death and distrationg. When you have enormous wealth and a huge advantage it is easy to love/defend capitalism. Compared to say a 3rd worlder like me. Whose father had a farmer but now has to work for factories for a minimum wage.
Not that I'm a staunch commie or anything. But I laugh at some amerifat who tells me I should be gratefull and how I live better than before. "Let me tell you about your country" taken to an extreme. On the opposing side I'm sure it was easy to defend communism as a member of nomenklatur in soviet union. Compare to say some polak factory worker.

So yeah I can't take that video seriously just as I can't take a video from some old fart who was the political elite in ussr talking how peole had it better under communism.

Not that this was my bloody point, my big point was the fact that Koch brothers were not self made. At all, fucking born rich cunts lecturing about "capitalism" what a fucking joke.

Has anyone read 5e's fucking Ravenloft?
Just some of the horrid shit in it:
>Strahd's played off as what amounts to Buffy the Vampire Slayer's Angelus levels of edge, literally feels nothing and seemingly has no interests above the usual, though not for the same Bram Stoker's Dracula tier reasons, Literally just wants Tatanya as if a meaningless trophy on his belt
>These dumb faggots made it so that Strahd wants to turn whatsherface not into a vampire bride, or hell, even a true vampire, BUT VAMPIRE SPAWN (You know, sniveling wall crawling nosebleed assface monster vamps?)
>Tatanya's a nigger
>The reincarnation is a nigger
>Strahd's wives are niggers
>Nigger Mayor of a town surrounding the land
>Evil white "everything is fine man"
>Strahd's a Bisexual sodomite degenerate with two male consorts to boot
>Made Barovians "Diverse"
>Made Strahd's conquering of the land sound tyrannical as fuck and less just
>Made it so that Some have Barovians have souls and some don't because of 5e's ravenloft being in a private demiplane, stopping newborn bodies from getting souls, in a piss-poor attempt to mimick the Old demiplanes of dread thing where some residents are literally just NPCs made by the powers, even though this makes no sense to anyone who's had to deal with Gulthias in 3.5 and Ashradorn in the whole Soul font thing with the ban on unborn souls in lore, so these people should be getting souls, because otherwise the demiplane would have to deny all positive energy for this shit to even remotely work
>All done because they're too lazy to redo the demiplanes of dread just like before,
>Strahd now heals for 20 in his fast heal
>Mongrel Men are the results of Racemixing past the half-race stage suffer for it, check their description and it's fucking played off as a good thing despite them being ugly mutants beyond redemption in their racial descriptions, the self-unawareness is real

This is why warhammer roleplay and castle drachenfels will always be superior

What happened to the huge amount of campaign settings for dnd 3.5? In reading the midnight campaign setting right now. It may look a little to edgy, it’s basically the lord of the rings were Sauron won, but it has the idea of how to be a hero in a world where everybody despise you for causing trouble to them, because most of the people of town and villages only wants to live in the most peaceful way, in a world where legions of orcs can steal the crops, kill your family, and rape your succubi (mostly if you are a dwarf) and there’s those people can do about that, because if those people tries to do something, or even worse, get help from adventurers and the local movements of resistance, you can be sold as a slave and be the food of a bunch of hungry orcs.
Scarred Lands was like a Midnight with a brighter spark of hope. It was created by a White Wolf Team, so you can expect the plots of the campaigns to be based more on interpretation than combat. It was based on greek mythology, the gods and the titans fought 100 years ago, destroying almost everything in the world. The setting even had a city based on the necromancer stories of Clark Ashton Smith.
Forgotten realms was okay, but I never liked who generic it was. The most interesting part was the Yuan Ti and the part of Faerun based on Babylonian mythology.
I know there’s a bunch of settings, Eberron, Kalamar, Kingdoms of iron and Ravenloft and one where it was at the dawning of time or something like that. They have new editions or nobody wants to see them anymore?

I don't care much for her politics, but I liked this travelogue Greta did.
>Climate activist Greta Thunberg urges world leaders to do more. ”Doing our best is no longer good enough. We must now do the seemingly impossible,” Thunberg says in the Swedish Radio show “Summer on P1” where she takes us along her trip to the front lines of the climate crisis.

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.

Reread a fanfiction I made in 2008 for inspiration on a current one.

My heart and ideas were in the right place.
My grammar was not.

Interestingly, I also read an original piece I wrote in 2008. I've got to say that younger me really had a knack for writing good action and choreography, but I'll never live down the melodrama I used as filler. The grammar was fine but the sentence structure was very formulaic and dry.

Working on this right now:
https://www.royalroad.com/fiction/28955/autist-isekai

Back then in Jan '19 I was doing 500+ words a day(for a chapter a day, since royalroad needs a minimum of 500)
https://www.royalroad.com/fiction/22597/stupid-cat

It was painful to get such bad reviews on Stupid Cat. I didn't like the story much either, but I did my best. It took a long time to pull all the pieces together, and Autist Isekai is some of my best work yet.

I still have that "I don't know if I like this…" feeling all the time. I'm editing these days. Which is good. I couldn't read my own work, so it would always be awful.

Now that I have a week to do a chapter I can write it, then ponder if it's any good or not. I've slipped into doing it last minute, and that made my last chapter a bit rushed.

I'm not that happy with my own work, but I am happy that it got done, no matter how weird it gets.

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

Does anyone else have the problem where they can think of all sorts of themes and interesting things but can't synthesize them into a coherent or non-cliche plot? Maybe I really should just take the advice to just "start writing" just so I can get something down. I'm far too perfectionist. If every sentence isn't perfect I get blocked up

 No.54107

I'd be lying if I said I've never been there as well.

No really: I wrote a 60k fanfiction with everything you described in 2012: action, choreography, and I even flat out admitted that melodramatic Sean Penn movies inspired some of the more word heavy dialogue (specifically Mystic River, The Game, and At Close Range).

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.

The only one I really got into and read extensively was a really shitty one about neopagan bullshit called Oh My Gods.

I found it around the same time I was informally studying various religious beliefs around the world so it kind of caught my interest as a lighthearted take from someone in one of the communities I was studying rather then some dry history and text books written by academics.
Sort of was the right comic for my headspace at the time, but now that I am not in that headspace I can't really see how I got enjoyment from it as it just seems so shit now.

See if your city has a freegeek association, there you can buy inexpensive laptops, desktops, and other electronics. I got a x220 for $40 usd there. It came with Linux Mint and several programs installed. The laptop has been great, I've had for over a year now.

 No.54053

Everytime I want to buy an electronic device, I go to Amazon, and even if it has mostly good reviews, that 5% of 1 star ratings scares me, especially if that 5% is all complaining of the same issue. And bad reviews usually get more upvoted to the top. Because its what buyers are concerned about.

I don't think theres a single device on Amazon, that you wont have at least 5% 1 stars for.

With other products, OK its flawed but you can live with it. But electronics, most of the complaints is that it completely dies and stops working. And this is shit you're spending hundreds of dollars on.

It just freezes me into sticking with what I have, not wanting to risk a dead product.

Amazon reviews are untrustworthy because most of the top sellers bribe buyers with free stuff if they leave a 5-star review. 1-star reviews seem just as useless though, usually it's just someone complaining that the item was damaged in shipping or they broke it somehow.

I gave a 1 star review to a creme that gave me a rash and the seller tried really hard to bribe me to take or change the review.

I read this book when I was 5 or 6. It was about 3 kids going on an adventure, climbing a mountain, going through a forest and whatnot just to eventually find out they're were actually walking on a sleeping giant all along. The mountain were his boots, the forest his beard, etc.
I've been looking for this book for literally 2 decades now but nobody seems to know about it. It's one of those books for small kids, it has only 3 or 4 sentences per page on one side and the other side was an illustration of the action. I read on a school library in perhaps 95, 96.

Also Peter Rabbit is comfiest.
