I didn't really want to start thread with topic and just wanted to post in news thread but I guess this is the only sensible place
https://www.vice.com/en_uk/article/mbmkz8/us-military-could-collapse-within-20-years-due-to-climate-change-report-commissioned-by-pentagon-says
So apparently DoD is saying that they anticipate climate change being so extreme, so soon, as to have catastrophic consequences within the next 20 years up to and including the total collapse of the US military in its ability to respond to threats and collapse of US infrastructure.

This worries me especially because I've already had multiple blackouts this year. Has anyone else experienced this? And no I don't live in California either

The problem is national Socialism itself has come to mean NSDAP which is obviously just as much if not more pure cancer than Capitalism and Communism.

Actually what about something not quite Socialistic but sort of and that has religious values? Does anything like that even exist? I guess basically something like what Jesus taught which come to think of it every one of those ideologies rejects more or less.

I think Mormons come the closest in terms of caring for their own like Europeans do.

I'm at the point of thinking that religion is necessary, but not sufficient. Obviously there have been innumerable theocratic shitholes that use the force of God to cow the people in face of the worst exploitative hierarchies. But in the short history of society unmoored from religion, nothing lasting and stable has been built. Except Mormonism. They've managed to reform the worst parts of their faith, while not collapsing into the postmodern feel-good spiritual black hole that defines the rest of American Christianity.

Found this really good youtube channel. The artist outs out short, melancholic pieces akin to a lot of lo-fi hip-hop works.
I came across this through the (in)famous YoutubePoop called Deliver Us, which uses pieces by the artist as a soundtrack.

For the first time in my life, I'm actually considering paying for an album. I mean, if it gives you a panic attack and almost makes you cry, then it's good shit. Basically this is what I seek from art. It should fuck me up and reassemble me. From Dostoevsky to Neon Genesis Evangelion.

Nicht alle Schmerzen sind heilbar, denn manche schleichen
Sich tiefer und tiefer ins Herz hinein
Und während Tage und Jahre verstreichen
Werden sie Stein

Du sprichst und lachst, wie wenn nichts wäre
Sie scheinen zerronnen wie Schaum
Doch du spürst ihre lastende Schwere
Bis in den Traum

Der Frühling kommt wieder mit Wärme und Helle
Die Welt wird ein Blütenmeer
Aber in meinem Herzen ist eine Stelle

Been listening to Pöbel MC since finding them recently through another band (All Against All by What We Feel & Mister X, so the only relation is that they did a release with Moscow Death Brigade a little bit ago and MDB is also kind of hip-hop). Tbh, the new video just reminds me of Kurt from our Bodycount game for reasons that will be obvious to anyone who knows what that implies (the dancing mostly :-D), so I thought I'd post it :-DDD

Hello Ernst,

Today the topic also, is unironically, very Ernst.

I got hacked browsing the darknet, my Screen/Microphone on the PC and Camera on my phone have been monitored, etc.

Apparently my Browser had been "fingerprinted", whatever that means. By tracking my IP they poached me on a VoIP program on the clearweb as a group and started bullying and gaslighting me.

I also am often sleep deprived and was in a very malleable state of mind at that time, my mind had in order to cope with the situation come up with a reason for why it was happening;

They were trying to help me, I'm a detestable person and they're helping me change.

I managed to snap out of that "Psychosis" the next day but made the mistake of allowing myself to think that the abuse was also a result of my temporarily altered state of mind. Big mistake.

Fuck image orientation, I shall proceed regardless.

kek I enjoyed seeing my old posts, here are the new watches.

1st Rotary black face
It has a 4th dial which spins the tachygraph, I have no idea why.
I like and don't like this watch, since I had a limited opportunity I wasn't going to let this pass, also apart from the rear of the case outside is all black and back to the thick dial, nice to wear with the extra weight, dare I say great this watch will grow on me cost £95-120 can't recall.

2nd Rotary blue face, leather strap
This may be my favourite, but not going to replace the strap just yet, thick dial, like the look of this one, still prefer the one with Nato strap, cost £95-120 mixed up the prices with these two

3rd Sekonda, two tone, black face.

A man with the perfect voice for reading poetry, reads poetry.

The reader is anonymous, but it's possible he is an actor. In an old article, film critic Roger Ebert wrote this:
>The anonymous reader signs himself "Tom O'Bedlam," a name taken from a 17th century poem about a lunatic. I believe I recognize his unmistakable voice, but that is for you to decide.

Wish I could help but I'm not familiar with this topic and so do not know the books. I'm sure if you searched around online you'd start getting lots of links on more where to look especially if you're really not picky about it being in French or English instead of Russian.

Here within first few hits apparently is documentary

I am thinking that you could actually probably get a lot more hits depending if use key terms like "neocolonialism" or something involving French-African geopolitics.

Does Ernst celebrate holidays?
If so, how often and with whom?

I ask because I was thinking about Christmas celebrations the other day, and realized that I celebrate fewer holidays these days. Most holidays I just end up working, especially since my night shift makes the actual impact of a day of socializing, reflection, and rest less meaningful. I also used to celebrate some holidays with my Dad's side of the family, but due to lack of interaction I only celebrate with my Mom and Stepdad's extended family.

I've also noticed that due to work/time constraints by many members of the family, we rarely celebrate the holiday on the proper day, but instead move it to the weekend before or after. This was rarely the case in the past, but is now the norm.

Basically, I celebrate the following:
New Years - Alone/online, the last few years working on Gachimuchi collabs and the like
Easter - With Mom and sometime Stepdad's family
Mother's Day - Mom and Stepdad, and visiting Grandma in the nursing home (she has advanced Alzheimers, visit her regularly regardless)

I don't know about this work/holiday divide. If it's pancake day then I have pancakes, if I'm single on valentines then I treat the sexiest person I know (myself). I'm still observing a festival only in a more measured fashion. Pancake day is on the 25th if you're curious.

Using the threads criteria only Christmas and my birthday are really celebrated and it's been like that for over a decade. I still take time off to see family etc. that but I don't use the calendar. Maybe that says something about our increasingly fragmented society where we don't celebrate together which hurts how we relate in this slice of life anime called life.

>Why is thanksgiving a thing in the states?
Thanksgiving is our national Autumn Feast which Candians also enjoy, but on a different day. The main celebration involves families getting together and eating lots of food, but it's also a huge day for football(our version). Major NFL games are scheduled on the holiday. In addition to all that, the date comes at the end of November, and marks the traditional start of the Christmas shopping season.
It's basically America© condensed into a single day.

What operas do you like?
Favorite composers and/or librettists?
Favorite singers?
Do you ever visit the opera?

Personally I'm just starting to reach out into this territory, having been hooked mostly by the music of Wagner and his librettos but also by the german Lied. Never been to the opera myself yet but I'm currently looking for a worthwhile (classical, not post-modern deconstructionist filth) staging I can visit this year and meanwhile satisfying myself with recordings and reading librettos.

I've only been a few times, and mostly because I could get in for free as a student or due to my current part-time job at the theatre. Nonetheless I feel impelled to share my unqualified opinions.
My absolute favorite was Macbeth by Verdi, I don't remember the sound that well, but the staging was really memorable, very surreal with colored lighting, monumental set pieces and good costumes. All the other ones I've seen the stage design and the costumes were pretty average/bad. In fact they seem to recycle most of the costumes from various different pieces without too much regard and put it off as creative freedom or whatever. I don't mind it that much but it's just kind of sad.
Recently I've seen Mussorgsky's Boris Godunov (based on a play by Pushkin) which was pretty good (again if you didn't pay too much attention to the stage design, and to the accents, and to the bad subtitles). They even made a trailer for it, see for yourself: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FRvQG6CzrV4
Though I'm afraid that either something is wrong with my ears or the acoustics aren't all that great in the theatre I've watched it at. Then again I didn't exactly have the best seat of course. And it really matters where you sit so if you're actually paying for your ticket you need to really make sure it's a good adaptation else it might not be worth the money.
Also I've seen half of Der Ring an einem Abend which is a shortened version of Wagner's Ring cycle with intermittent commentary written by Loriot which is performed by a speaker. It wasn't as cringe as I expected it to be, but I didn't really enjoy it either. Maybe I just don't like Wagner that much, it's a bit too pompous, too many crashing cymbals. Though I did enjoy the Parsifal movie adaptation by Syberberg, but it's also a visual feast. What's the appeal of Wagner to you?

The only opera that really resonates with me is Fidelio, and then just one or two arias. Musically, I like Mozart's operas, and a few pieces I'vd heard from 18th century French opera.

Wagner is to me the stereotype of opera in the worst way possible. Underwhelming Romantic-era music and lofty overblown national-cultural myths. IMO the 19th century was in many ways the cultural and intellectual lowpoint of the European elite, and the only post-napoleonic opera I really like and admire is Carmen. My nigga Nietzsche have similar tastes in this respect.

As I don't want to post it in the Today thread, maybe we can talk ITT about theatre as well? In any case, I'm gonna hijack this for my impressions of the "Ice Trilogy" play I've seen on Saturday. Spoiler because it's a rambling wall of text.

It was really ambitious, just the sort of post-modern maximalism I enjoy. On stage the actors were followed and filmed with a handheld camera and the feed projected onto a half-translucent screen covering the stage, there was another LCD screen with additional pre-recorded clips playing from time to time, and an artist with a tablet whose drawings were projected onto the stage, also really banging sound effects and a pretty catchy live sung theme song.
Of course not all of that at the same time, it was split into 6 episodes with different settings & themes, quite a rollercoaster ride covering just about anything from violent murders, mad soliloquys, pure slapstick & plenty of fourth wall breaks, somber philosophical voiceover recitals, bizarre infomercial-stlye interludes and so on until it all dissolved into light. Also quite impressive how it were only 7 or so actors each of whom probably played about a dozen different roles througout.

Just to sum up the plot briefly, it's about a sect of chosen people with blonde hair and blue eyes, who are awakened by being hit on their chest with a hammer made from Tunguskan meteorite ice. Whoever dies in the process is not part of the chosen 23.000, but merely a "flesh machine". As soon as all 23.000 are awakened, all the brothers and sisters will turn back into their original form of light and the world will end. The story then follows a few recurring and many side characters throughout the 20th century, mainly in Soviet Russia and Nazi Germany.
