Anyone else who enjoys bizzarre / unusual / personal angles on otherwise turbonormie hobbies?

In the past few years I've taken to cultivating mandrakes. Have enough to poison a small nighborhood if I wanted, but I mostly enjoy their flowers and the minimal care they require, They're basically weeds, like me.


I only cannot enjoy heavily photo shopped photos, with filters all over them. I don't get the appeal for that shit, like normalniggers do.


Use the catalog.



This site isn't big, fast, or active enough where getting this granular is even remotely justified or needed when such similar threads already exists.

**And to the mod, telling someone to use the god damn catalog isn't against the fucking rules.
Voicing objection to a thread for reasons that don't violate the rules and thus don't justify being reported is also not a motherfucking violation of the fucking rules.
And mo pointing out that a post doesn't violate the rules isn't a violation of the god damn rules.**

Does anyone here do deadlifts? I'm thinking about working to get a god-tier deadlift. My first goal is to make it up to 405lbs deadlift and then see how far I can take it from there. Right now I can do 255 for 5x5. Any wizbros here with tips?

Right now I'm 80 lbs overweight and need to stop eating so much food. The problem is I'm addicted to food and since I'm a 28 year old virgin, it's not like I have much else to do so it's gonna be hard to cut back on the food. Does anyone also have tips on how to feel full and not feel the need to eat food?

If you're going to a gym don't be afraid to ask someone you've seen deadlifting to check your form during reps. You can really hurt yourself even with medium weights and only notice hours later that your back hurts or something. Makes it hard and annoying to lift for a week.


My advice is that you should focus on consistently working out and that matters infinitely more than PR chasing based on /fit/'s meaningless strength standards. Deadlifts are fine if you enjoy doing them, if you don't you're just torturing yourself when there are much easier exercises that have the same effect. I fell for the starting strength meme and I disliked it so much that I quit lifting for years. I then started an easier more isolated three day PPL without deadlifts, built a fairly decent body by normie standards and I'm now able to maintain it by lifting once or twice a week. I only work legs once every two weeks, if that because admittedly I haven't been working out as much as I should because I've felt like an axe has been hanging over me.
>Does anyone also have tips on how to feel full and not feel the need to eat food?
You're never going to that feel full in the first weeks of dieting and that shouldn't be the goal. You should either be eating only a single meal per day, water fasting for long periods of time, or counting calories and weighing your food. The latter gives you a better feeling for what foods are 'worth' eating and what is a waste of calories but it's more time consuming. Either way, you have 80 pounds of extra calories hanging off your body, you need food like a billionaire needs a thousand bucks. Whatever you do, don't resort to fat logic and talk yourself into overeating. Your strength will suffer as you lose weight, but it will still be worth it.

Another thing to consider is if you would be more likely to workout if you could do it at home. For around $200, you can pick up a 200 pound set of dumbbells that can replace an entire gym. Instead of back or front squats, do rear elevated split squats as they are better and require a fraction of the amount of weight since they're mostly done on a single leg. Instead of bench press, do a floor press. No other equipment is really needed.


Deadlifts are a great exercise.

Please be safe (don't allow yourself to round your back).

I ego lifted for some time and while I didn't hurt myself, my deadlift didn't improve. I should have just lowered the weight and worked up in smaller increments.

The best way I've personally found to make consistent progress is to squat regularly as well. If I just did one, nothing happened, but when I would squat and dead in the same week, both would be a little better.

But I don't know if this is true for everyone. I deadlift a lot more than I squat. I think the way you're built determines a lot about how you need to lift.

There are a wide variety of strength standards online, but I found this article interesting.



I'll just add that with all weight training, remember that is a marathon, not a sprint. Accept slow progression, especially with deadlifting. You don't have to add weight every time you work out, there are other ways to improve, like power. Being able to steadily move the same weight with more confidence than last time should be considered progress.

Also do bent-over rows and squats if you arent already. They'll be more isolating to muscles like quads and lats that help keep you stable through the deadlift.

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).

Maybe you're just just slow and are better off overdosing on heroin.


It's not for everyone. Any idiot can hold a paintbrush and a triggered faggot will quit instead of learning to paint.


Why would some fag that buys drugs from niggers feel the same accomplishment as the man who grew something?

You literally ate something from a niggers ass and are mad at the farmer who didnt.


fooled by your own delusions, seeking to brag about even something anybody can do. drug snobs like yourselves and joe rogan turn away non-pretentious people from ever trying them because they're worried they'll fry their brain and start sounding like you. you faggots aren't painters or farmers. stop kidding yourselves.


Anyone go for wood-ear mushrooms?

Every other board has their own /general/ and it might be better to post about little known hobbies here, rather than have a new thread that gets 2 replies.

How about horseback riding?

Recently I had some money to spend, so I bought a beginner/small telescope to "stargaze" with. It's quite interesting to do, albeit I could see someone bore of it.

So far, I managed to see some of our planets and some sparkling stars with it. I also used it to to check out the nearby mountains and the city. It's quite a sight to see with one's own eyes (albeit very small) planets like Jupiter or Saturn. There's just something that I like about being outside alone in relative dark, and getting this hobby proved to also give that tendency a kind of boost.

I'm having so many dreams lately, if there's a time to start working on a dream journal again this is it. Let's make this a dreamlog where we can share and maybe comment on each others dreams/nightmares. The more you write down your dreams, the more you can retain and remember them.

I had a dream I was getting yelled at by a group of hipsters who's apartment I was interviewing to live in. Apparently I referred to someone who I saw 3 year ago by their human name, though now they wanted to transition to being a dog and their transition was complete. I got so fucking mad at this level of PC i woke up.


Sounds hilarious


All I remember is a creepy cyborg succubus telling me, "I'm immortal."


In my dream I had sex with my waifu. It was successful as she moaned and everything. Her regular voice was just like in anime. In fact I can't imagine it that very well for that time when I'm awake, but it sounded very real in my dream. I might felt pain in my heart (feels worse in dream than it actually is) as I was on my stomach irl. It could be before this dream but I think otherwise.

After changing my position in my next dream I realized I was in a lucid dream. Knowing from previous experience I tried not enforce my wish too much as I would awake or it wouldn't happen. Yet I tried to imagine her face features and eyes more vividly. She appeared but it was more like imagination result. However, then in my third (second non-lucid) dream I happened to be with my waifu on the escalator riding down some guts tunnel inspired by visuals from Saya no Uta VN. I could see her more vividly and felt her presence better. Out of worry and to give her some moral support I moved closer to her. And then after some time I woke up.

What do you do when none of your hobbies are fun any more? Where it feels like you're just going through the motions because that's just what you do?

One reviewer told how he's editing his video for an hour, then takes a break for about 20 or less minutes to play videogames, then back to editing and so on.


for videogames it can help to learn how they are made. so you appreciate the textures and tilesets, the music and sound effects, the character models and geometry, and interface, etc, and think about how everything works. i can pretty much play anything now because i mostly focus on that stuff

i'm sure if you approach other things from a different angle it can seem more interesting as well


Fasting, deep breath, some pushups.

I now consider researching conspiracy theories to be a hobby of mine. Of course, as a hikki, this information is of literally no use to me whatsoever, and I do not have the charisma to "educate" others. It is simply a pastime.
Many people act like simply researching these very alternative ideas is damaging in and of itself. Popular on wizchan youtuber named "K9 Aversion" recently announced she will no longer be creating content simply because people among her fanbase were discussing 5G towers and anti-vaxx ideas within her communities. Discussion alone is so offensive? Why? I do not even believe many of the ideas proposed myself and just enjoy thinking about them.
Because of these extreme reactions, I feel it necessary to give this disclaimer. Again, I do not necessarily believe the things proposed in this thread but rather enjoy thinking about it.

Please do not discuss theories that are political in nature in this thread. I don't want it to be deleted, although I find them interesting as well.

Some examples I've been thinking about lately:
- Alien abductions are real, however they differ from the normalfag idea of an alien abduction in that real abductions occur spiritually and not physically. And these abductions are NEVER to your benefit and you leave very unhealthy and emotionally damaged. They happen during the sleep normally, however sometimes they can happen while awake and when this happens it's similar to a date rape drug– you have a 2-5 hour blank spot in your memory when you "wake up" and have a feeling of general unease.

- The extension of the flat earth theory which claims the entire sky is a hologram, and sometimes that no planets except Earth exist. There are many youtube videos that document sky hologram "glitches".
- Alternatively (not flat earth related), that the sky is itself a giant living organism and that it sometimes sends shards of itself down to attack or observe people (they look like blue blankets and fly at great speeds.)

- You can fall through the ground like a video game glitch and get stuck in an infinite void on certain parts of the planet.

- Dinosaurs existed up until the early 1900's as evidenced by dinosaur tracks on the top layer of the earth that are way too well preserved to be from 60,000,000 years ago.

- Some gnostic wizards think that if they become spiritually elevated enough that they can cease ingesting food of any kind and live heaPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

So what happens if someone comes and assaults you?
Was that simply your repressed feelings manifesting themselves?


There's more to the economy than the average price of basic goods.
The price of bread is dependent on the grain industry, and since there is a great surplus of grains then bread remains cheap even if the economy is doing worse.
The ramifications of debt is that every year billions of tax payer dollars are used to cover interest payments. Money goes from you to you know who.


Sort of. It might be more accurate to frame it in the terms of destinies and timelines. Right now, if you try, you can feel your life in a temporal sense. You can sense where it's going and where it's been, you might have a 'good feeling' about your future or a 'bad feeling'. Basically, all of creation can accurately be called a part of your subconscious. Don't make the mistake of thinking that your linear thoughts have a huge impact over this, your consciousness is normally just a small slice of the Mind, unless you're vibing very high. It's like how, if you're having a good day a single thing that upsets you can suddenly shift the slice that composes your self into a bad day.
So, to answer your question. It's not that you have a secret desire to beat yourself up, but that you are blindly acting a role in reality which requires you to get assaulted. Learn to perceive the covenants and scripts of reality and you can shift into one or the other. There's a trick to this, but it doesn't translate into words very well. Basically you sense it and then feel it until you are feeling it all the time and it is more real than what was previously real.

A thread to post about things you've built, altered, summoned, or conjured in to existence - where the process of which isn't covered by an existing thread.


Sometimes wizards will create something and wish to share it, but no thread related to the process exists. They may not wish to create a new thread due to /hob/'s slow nature and tradition of keeping threads alive for as long as possible. Making what he did may also not necessarily be a hobby of his, but he may want feedback from fellow wizards regardless.


If you wish to make a new thread for your creative hobby, then by all means do! But swing by here occasionally to see what other wizards are making too!

it's tang


Been working on making mods.
Spent like a week teaching myself how to retexture stuff.

Because I am not a artist they all look like total shit so far but I at least learned how to make it work and I am learning how texture mapping works.

If I actually make something that doesn't look like total shit will post it but for now I am just learning.


that hand shoe is from ducktape?


Working on a walk through of a flea market.
First time ever doing video editing that was unrelated to stop motion. Way less tedious. I now understand how people can shit out 3 and 4 videos a day. These low effort videos are pretty easy to edit and finish. Even cutting together 15 seconds of animation or editing a proper film is real work and a total pain in the ass.

Obviously not posting the vid here through to maintain anonymity. Not only does it give location out but there are points where my reflection is visible. I guess if I wanted to be tryhard I could blur the reflections but no one cares so whatever.

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.

What is the Difference between expresionism and impresionism?


Why ask something here that could have easily been answered by typing the same thing into a search engine?


I do paint watercolors, and im now trying to paint with gouache and tempera. I also watch videos about painting oil and holy cow, its much easier than watercolors >_<


I have never heard someone think oil was easier then watercolor.

I mean I guess it allows you to work slow and blending is easier, but in everything else it is much harder and requires so much other gear, including super harsh dangerous chemicals as well as massive levels of patience since it can take days to wait between layers.
Seriously would never personally work with oil myself. Acrylic has totally spoiled me.

Woodblock/woodcut art seems underrated now at least in the west. I've always held a special place in my heart for the works of Everett Reuss since reading his letters when I was a boy. Not sure of too many modern artists.


Don't know about the west in general but in parts of the US it is basically folk art tier so it isn't surprising you wouldn't hear too much about it. It's all hobbyist and the like now. Sort of like you don't hear about basket weavers or potters because both of those are basically just hobbyist activities now too.


i like woodblocks, here's my favorite site on the internet probably. https://ukiyo-e.org/


Looks awesome, thanks for posting
