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

Well, I've been on urge to drink for a few weeks now. Tonight's poison is standard beer and "dry sake". The last is not that enjoyable personally but I don't have many options right now. What are you drinking or planning to drink?

cheap shitty vodka


ayinger when it's available, guinness otherwise


>I found that poured sake has strong alcohol taste, and from the bottle it's quite mild.
Because it is the aroma of alcohol that makes it appear stronger.
>cheap shitty vodka
As good as the expensive vodka you just need to know how to drink it and you will get the cheap stuff after all it is all made from the same stuff with different water added and even the real distilled vodka is just not worth paying extra for.
Anyone who pays extra for vodka instead of buying colored spirits is an idiot.


Gin and juice tonight but mostly this >>58218


Mostly just beer because spirits are too expensive where I live. Wine is also as economical as beer but I don't like that.
If it didn't cost more than twice as much to get drunk from vodka, I'd buy that all the time.

>eating coyotes
nasty wiz. They're filthy, diseased, and are sustained on a diet of rotting flesh and the feces they re-eat from themselves and other animals. I get killing them for pelts, pest control, or target practice but don't poison yourself. Dog livers and some other part can be fatally potent in iron so know where to cut and what to discard if you do bag any.


You can't do that.
All the land worth anything in terms of sustenance are city centers now. All the animals that are in pens now used to be out there in the wild. Forests are pretty much deserts in terms of human food. Unless you're down to eat bugs 24/7 and an occasional acorn.
t. Lived in the woods for total 4 months over 3 periods.


Mange and tularemia are easy to spot. Wont eat if spotted. Rabies cooks off


Plant identification and trapping.
Water purification
Advanced first aid

Stuff like that.
Maybe save up for a wilderness survive course if you are serious about this.
Or get a few books and go out and practices every chance you get before your "extended stay". It will take longer then doing a course but is cheaper.


It's usually cold, dark and wet where I live but in the summer I really enjoy going outside.
I walk in the forest every day to lose weight but if it's really warm I like going to the ocean to swim or snorkel. I live just a couple of kilometers from the ocean so I go often if there's a good summer.
Many years there's only a couple of weeks where it's warm enough for swimming to be enjoyable.

Let's have a thread on it! In the US at least, there's a lot of neat stuff to find even if you're not into it that much. For example, all quarters & dimes dated 1964 and earlier are made of 90% silver.
I'm surprised that there wasn't a thread about this already. Post your hoard if you wish.

I don't collect it but since you guys are interested in coins, I might as well show the only one I have. My great-grandfather was a fierce royalist and they would wear this coin as a pin on their coats after the Lisbon Regicide, that's why you can see a little solder in there. Interesting stuff.


>Lisbon Regicide
I mean the October 1910 revolution, though the regicide a couple years earlier is very connected to it.


Same here. Pure silver regardless of its form is best. You'll be glad you collected bullion coins (and bars, if available) next year when a gallon of milk is $500.


Saving up for my first Troy ounce of gold.
Haven't decided which round or coin I am getting yet.

I started coin collecting back in late 2019 after finding a foreign coin in my till at work. I had to get help online to identify it. Then I started keeping any foreign coins I found. I like to think about how any particular coin ended up on the other side of the planet, in my cash register. The oldest foreign coin I found was an 1881 Austrian coin, found in my till's penny cup.

I then started collecting circulating US coins, filling out checklists of dates/mint marks. I replace coins with higher quality ones as I find them. I enjoyed it, and it's the only reason I stayed at my wageslave job for another year; I'd 'buy' coin rolls from the store's change fund and take them home. This is "coin roll hunting" and has the same excitement as opening a booster pack of Pokemon cards as a kid. I'd meticulously examine the rolls, remove what I wanted to keep, replaced the removed coins, and return the rolls to work, where I'd trade for new rolls or just cash.
I also collect slightly older bank notes and any notes with "fancy" serial numbers.

God it was so much fun. One time I found three silver quarters in one roll! Usually I'd only find one every few months or so…
I remember the first time I found a silver quarter "in the wild": A customer paid for some candy in exact change. I was focused on something else, but as he dropped coins on the counter, I heard a familiar high-pitched ringing sound, leading my eyes to a noticeably whiter quarter. I elatedly switched out the silver coin to take home later.

I quit my job back in January (just couldn't handle the forced socializing anymore) and haven't hunted any coin rolls ever since. Most hobbyists just buy boxes of coins directly from banks, but I've read that getting tellers to cooperate can prove difficult, especially if you want to order a box of half dollars or something.
That's just a kind of social interaction I can't do. I just can't do it. I quit my job because it was getting harder and harder to deal with social interaction. I can't make myself talk to anybody who doesn't talk to me first, and I can't even look people in the eyes. There's no way I'd be able to persuade a bank teller to give me hundreds of dollars in coins. I wish I could do that but I just can't.

Picture is the coin (not mine) from 2019 that sparked my interest in numismatics. Soon after identifying the coin, I learned that Thai baht coins are some of the more common foreign coins to find Post too long. Click here to view the full text.


Just watched a Shawn Keller interview last night, and I have to say, he's quite possibly one of the most wizardly animators alive today.
>60+ year old virgin
>A man that has no need for *o*en, only making cartoons
>He can pump out a completed professional 11 minute cartoon in under a month, something an entire studio takes 10 months to make
>Dude's been around the oldschool comic fetish/furfag communities before even usenet existed, got fucked over by furries he was kind enough to help out, but still forgives them, like a wizardly furry Jesus
The interview's still up on YouTube, and they're going to be doing another one today at 3:25pm EST. It'll be streamed here cytu(dot)be(slash)r(slash)mlp-con2

Yeah I’m huge into furry but his style really isn’t my cup of tea.


>his style really isn’t my cup of tea
Old-school style is just too wizardly for you I guess.


I like old school, but something about taking Disney style 1 for 1 just kinda irks me. Also he draws dudes and I just don’t go that way.


>something about taking Disney style 1 for 1 just kinda irks me
That's the charm in my opinion. It's a good reminder that at least half of the animators working on Disney films were drawing furry smut on the downlow in their spare time.


God what I would give for some official Maid Marian porn.

Anyone here have weird, niche interests? I’m curious about this kind of thing. I like hearing about people dedicating their lives to one specific strange thing. Post about them here.

Shouldn't this be in the photography thread?


Not sure if it's weird but here you go.

I organize*, collect porn and keep track of every fap I do with date and the video tied to it. I use a software I wrote to manage all of this and it has, after 4 years of development, reached quite a good amount of features in it.

I keep track of the faps I do so I can collect data on what videos, model, studio I like more and get more stuff of it.

At the moment I have 2.5TB organized.

I've also developed a sort of system that should suggest me on which model I should fap to based on total videos I have of her, last time I fapped to her and what type of videos she star in (interracial, foot-job, cuck ecc…).It's quite a complex algorithm is heavily based on my fap patterns I developed during time and kept track of thanks to this software.

If you're interested in it I'll leave some resource to other software like mine that can do similar stuff:

* With organize I mean tagging video with stuff like foot-fetish, blowjob, anal, squirting, ecc… and assigning a studio and models.



I was interested but


Is that term still around? It sounds so 2010.

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.

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.

Anyone here make their own clothes? I want to get into this mainly because it's so hard to find clothes that fit me.


I made a wizard hat from an old Italian Stone leather jacket once. it SUCKED


I cut up a sweater and then stitched it back together once


I croche'd a scarf and a pair of mittens. And a wizard hat too.

do any wizards like tea? specifically loose leaf teas? if so, any specific blends or varieties you like/recommend?

i recently got into gongfu brewing and it's pretty much the only thing i've been thinking about these days. i found this hole in the wall tea shop in the chinatown in my city and purchased a shou pu'erh tea cake that i've been picking away at.

I got some tea containers finally. Even the biggest ones I could find, about 6 inches tall five in diameter or something, was not enough for the massive amount of herbals I got at a store. I have about 5 containers. The price was quite small for the product, but the shipping was as much as the product itself. I will probably get more later and establish a tea cabinet.

My next plan is to maybe get more varieties of tea and containers. I still have tons of herbal stuff that I barely drink. Despite everything, I drink mostly herbal teas since there's no caffeine. I'll try to change that.


I like the roast oolong and lapsong souchong


i like all kinds of tea but im so fucking lazy as it is i never make any i need a bathroom and a water source in my room or something to overcome this


You can cold brew tea pretty effectively, just have a big jug of room temp water that you put the tea in and let it steep for a while. I've been doing this ever since the weather got warm, I just put the jug in the fridge overnight.
