Sometimes I get such severe secondhand embarrassment / fremdschämen from watching a situation depicted in a film or TV show that I have to stop watching: for instance, if a character is about to disappoint someone or do something wrong and get caught.

does this happen to anyone else

It's the opposite, too much empathy and understanding of social taboos. I brought this up once or twice irl and it seems to be common when you're watching something on your own.

I know that feel. Well, maybe not quite as badly as you, but I had to stop watching Peep Show since Mark was making me cringe too hard.

I feel like it's gotten much better and rarely happens (not sure if I've become less sensitive or because I watch things that don't make me cringe), but sometimes it's still too much.
Recently I pretty much stopped watching The Sopranos, mainly due to Carmela making me uncomfortable.

Oh god, Peep Show is definitely Exhibit A in that regard.

Willkommen! This thread is for the sharing and discussion of short-films of all kinds.

I would like to start with two films directed by Russian filmmaker Andrei Khrzhanovsky that are of importance and demonstrate the technical level Soviet/Russian animation once operated on.

>The Glass Harmonica (1968)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XmhZS4hr2gU

The first (and allegedly only) animated film banned in the USSR for its depiction of totalitarianism and censorship of the arts. Inherently it has an anti-capitalist message in the role money plays turning people into monsters but you can obviously see what is really at work.

What is interesting about this other than the on the nose message is the use of historical artwork in a surrealist format. It was a very daring film even for life in the Khrushchev Thaw.

There's a small kernel of truth in your post buried under shit tons of incel rage.

"Nice guys" supposedly made up the backbone of society, but I don't know a single woman who ever liked them. A woman tolerated a nice guy if his career prospects were promising or if her woman's parents like him, but women always preferred men they were more in awe of. The fantasy has always been Prince Charming, not some clodhopping farm boy or a stuffy manager with a steady office job. Women also weren't given a choice in those days, so they put up with the charmless dorks to avoid being disinherited.

To be honest, I don't blame the ladies. It may seem that these women exercise more rational thought picking shoes than they do men, but there's always a primitive part of the brain that instinctively knows charming bad boys trump nice guys when hard times hit. They're likelier to survive a nuclear holocaust than any slovenly obese neckbeard or testosterone-drained, small souled bugman. In fact, some of these self-described nice guys are devious and abusive in ways Colonel Chad could never even fathom. Even a rich CEO or successful lawyer / doctor doesn't have the same charm as a hardened criminal or a soldier who killed fitty men.

Anecdote: I went to school with a guy who showed off his mid-semester report card scoring a 0.85 GPA during his freshman year. He couldn't have been a worse student if he tried, and he prided himself on his lack of scholarly ambition, but he was very much in shape and athletically inclined. He was also quickwitted and possessed a solid set of street smarts. I doubt he was truly stupid, but he was certainly not interested in learning. After graduating, he went into the military and spent a few years overseas before becoming a project manager at some company. Meanwhile, he married a very gorgeous looking girl and had two kids with her. She even acknowledged he was (and still is) a bit of a punk ass, but she's convinced he's changed for the better.

When communicating in English do you sometimes make mistakes because you often see native speakers make them? Which ones get you?

Grammar and spelling mistakes are really common in with native Englishers online, I imagine that must really mess with people trying to learn. Please discuss this topic.

Except Y generally.

A young bird. A Sea Urchin. An Urchin. Generally speaking it's a cadence thing. A urchin is awkward to pronounce, whereas an urchin allows an-urchin to sort of roll together whereas a-urchin requires a stop. English, particularly American English, is a very clippy language. We like saying things in the shortest possible amount of time, with the exception of our overreliance on articles to begin with (I can see how Slavic and other languages drop the/a/an so much because it's really not always necessary). A yogurt. A hundred yogurts although some people or maybe it was archaic English didn't pronounce the H making it an hundred yogurts.

A good rule of thumb maybe is if you can pronounce it like it's part of the same word without breaking your cadence, use an. If the next sound is consonant not a vowel use a. A-cow, a-youth, an-ox. Notice how all these could basically just be pronouned single words. A-ox, an-youth, an-cow, not so much.

It all depends on what you are trying to achieve.

If "you got nothing to hide" it doesn't matter what you use, just use the thing you like, you are getting fucked anyway. They can probably drive a freight train into your ass by now, sideways.

> VPN
Only to protect against Hollywood based attacks. Any government backed agency can still get you. They fucking closed down the internet just to catch a guy in Norway who was using Tor so if you are going to annoy them you need some serious OPSEC. First of being, do not post here. Every *chan is seriously monitored since retards started posting manifestos and killing people.

That said, Firefox. Only because of plugins that can clean up your internet experience™. Torbrowser is also good if you need to hide that filthy porn habit of yours from various trackers.

In alm honesty I've seen two capeshit things that were good, and those are The Dark Knight and a couple XMEN movies. Days of Future Past was really good, and the one set in the Cold War wasnt bad either. I do remember seeing one that was terrible though. Or maybe it was a few and they blur together into one capeshit mass.

Speaking of comic book stuff, has anyone seen Preacher? Is the show any good?

Just watched this adaptation of a Kafka short story. It was okay, really nothing special. The main point was the animation itself, which was Experimental, but I just probably don't get it. (Or it's just simply not my cup of tea. It's gritty and intentionally crude, it reminds me of some Pilotredsun animations, weirdly enough.)
Besides the wacky, surreal animation, it follows the source material word-for-word.
Honestly, if it wasn't Kafka, I wouldn't really care for it.

Since I like experimental animation, I searched for this on Youtube. It's definitely surreal. I think the director was trying to create a dream-like feeling, where there the viewer had no solid and reliable visual footing. Maybe that was to convey the doctor's lack of control; they were the new priests and people expected them to magically fix things. At least that's how I interpretted it.

I hear ya, I've bought quite a few books on tracking, hunting, skinning and survival - along with a bow and a bunch of tools that can be used without electricity. I am already teaching my kids the basics of bows, tools and how things work because my own parents basically taught me nothing - in fact they were barely literate and completely uneducated yet walked into careers in the 70s and 80s and had their mortgage paid off within 10 years. by the way you should try explaining to a 5 year old how an airbag works sometime, that's a fucking minefield of endless questions right there. Same with things like clouds

boomers have no concept of value, they were basically handed security in a high trust society, they had family, they had inheritance and they probably had a lot more siblings than our generation, and they lived under far more lenient laws and less draconian shit so they did have so many safety nets compared to us. What do they do with all this security? they squander it on absolute bullshit and frivolity when they're in their 60s and 70s.
