Posted about Happiness, but threda autosage'd so here's v4 of the best thread. Here's the repost:

Watched Happiness (1935), a silent movie about a yokel with this stronk wife who live and work a farm, being bled dry by the classes of old Russia - Priests, kulaks, military, thieves, etc. The movie itself really isn't that good save for its historical context.

Our yokel attempts to perform his own funeral which makes all the parasites who live off his work terrified because if he dies, "Then who will feed Russia?". The clergy accuse the fool of sacrilege - the military takes him and they sentence him to die 7 times in the Carpathians. His strong heroic wife joins a kolkhoz, leads a shock worker bridge and scores a bountiful harvest. The collective farm awards her applause, praise and even sheep. There is still trouble in the kolkhoz as remants of the old classes try to steal from the collective and start acts of sabotage. Alcoholics and 'loafers' are shown to be the reason why the collective isn't doing EVEN better.
The evildoers attempt to steal the grain stockpile, the main character who was demoted to standing guard fails to keep safe the people's grain and those damned reactionary forces steal both the warehouse and our protagonist. In the end, the collective DESTROYS them by shucking melons at them because their harvests were so incredible and bountiful that they could assault food thieves with them. After this victory by the shock workers of our collective farm, the couple goes shopping in a fashionable and well stocked clothes store in a nice and organized city.

The Wages of Fear (1953)
What an absolute butt-clencher. Loved how for the first hour or so the movie doesn't really get into the main plot and could've gone in a completely different direction afterwards. All this character development at the beginning really pays off later on during the more thrilling moments.

There's a quasi-remake called Sorcerer (1977) by William Friedkin, looks interesting as well.

The Last Temptation of Christ (1988)
Some b-movie vibes here and there, but I still found it very moving. The casting is particularly great, with Dafoe as Jesus of course, Harry Dean Stanton and David Bowie in their minor but memorable roles as Saul and Pontius Pilatus, and especially Harvey Keitel with his Brooklyn accent as a gangster Judas is a stroke of genius.
Also great soundtrack by Peter Gabriel.

Watched Chapayev (1934), a hit soviet movie about Chapayev's exploits leading a division during the Russian Civil War.

Despite a lot of prizes, the movie itself isn't that great for a modern viewer, more interesting in creating tropes and a cultural lore to soviet rule. Apparently it was a great success throughout the USSR, even in Poland and this movie was even repeatedly praised by Stalin who forced underlings to bear through repeated viewings.

It did have some pretty comic moments though.

  1. Nice sincere quite a bit good acting a pair of modern scenes
  2. Sinatra made a good job along the other actors, nice film too. I don't know if in that time everyone respected "The President" to such a degree. Regarding Sinatra, he did another nice picture with "The man with a golden arm" which someday I will watch again... Heroin!

There is a thread asking about German grammar, but why not make a languages general?

Why aren't you learning a language in your free time? Go for it, it's a good use of time. In a couple of years, you'll have an interesting skill.

I'm currently learning Russian, it's a horrible language crafted by Satan himself. Cyrillic is bad, but cursive cyrillic is just sadistic, it is no wonder that so many people resisted attempts at Russification.


Here is a link if anyone wants to suffer alongside me with Russian.

>How much does Amish reflect modern German?
Not at all, I can only recognize very small fragments, like "Was" (What?), and even that sounds screwed from the pronounciation. The fact that it is a little muffled doesn't help things either.
No. 54940
Very little. The pronouns are similar, and some simple words I can recognise, like gucken, gehe, leben, mit=>metz/s and so on, but otherwise it's not really similar, it went through a lot of sound changes too by the looks. It also seems to be mixed with English when it comes to the vocabulary. (If I didn't have the translation in English, I wouldn't have understood anything.)
The cause is probably the fact that like >>54937 said it's not descended from Hochdeutsch/Standard German but from some weird dialect that you'd have trouble understanding even if you encountered it in Germany as a German.
Like I was studying German for three years in HS, met two Swiss people and I did not understand a single word they said to each other in their dialect.
No. 54941
I want to add, there are still people speaking "Penssylvania Dutch", seemingly also in part by some kind of amish/quaker/whatevers, which is largely derived from the palatinate dialect.


Basically it sounds like someone from the palatinate region speaking with a pronounced american accent. Of course there are some words nobody uses anymore, but I can understand most of what they're saying.

Hey britlad, not sure wherever you went but I just wanted to formally apologize to you about that and how you were right last year for telling me to invest. That is literally the fourth fucking time in my adult life I missed a rather major, epic chance to cash in because I was retarded and/or too poor to do anything about it. When you told me I should stop paying my rent and just invest you literally told me that right before this huge crypto bull run, judging by the charts. I mean yeah I eventually ran out of money anyways by new years. Yeah it was actually quite noice to push myself so far ahead on bills and rents that for once in my life I knew I could quit my job and live with myself playing vidya for months on end without any job and not even so much as get pestered with a bill in the mail. It was actually a noice feeling, but I should have listened to you. Had I actually taken that gamble back then I'd of had thousands and thousands of dollars extra now per just a few hundred which I could've easily written off as a loss, and I think a huge part of it is in being both stupid lazy. That, and because I pretty much just did not think it could justify sinking into investments then.

I would also just like to point out in the medium to short term I am absolutely expecting to be getting hosed, which is fine by me because I don't think anybody should ever actually invest money in anything particularly this volatile without mentally and emotionally having already written it off as a loss. I still consider my financial exposure well within acceptable limits, with say 5k junkcoins for $5-10 being at once the lowest possible financial exposure as well as the rather unlikley chance of it going up being the maximum returns for such a small bet.

My thinking has continuously been evolving for months now and it has occurred to me I think the most efficient use of my time would be forking a blockchain somewhere to try and create my own crypto. My main problem is not even the ineptitude with code afaik but rather the legal exposure I could plausibly incur particularly given that it is now "regulated" and depending how I do it could be running afoul of the Securities Exchange Commission. I think that ironically the best bet for ass covering is fortuitously also the laziest, in that I could just release some shit into the wild and buy into what I made like crazy after announcing it rather than promising anything at all nor in having any actual stake in it whatsoever outside of being just another investor. I have already figured out exactly what to do and how I could do it minus the actual part about learning to use Putty or some shit like that, and also because ETH forks like what I was looking at wanted a facebook account. like seriously just what in the absolute fuck? Why. The fuck. Does anybody. Keep pushing crypto like it's some grand solution. So far as I have seen they are rapidly accelerating the New World Order cashless society dystopia they've been ranting at me about for years now. So far as I have seen immediately following the wild west crypto phase we'll have a total Chinese style control over everything linking to your social credit score. It's beyond retarded.

Like, I am pretty sure what I have in mind is actually workable, especially if I could set up some kind of cheapass home server on a Pi and just set up my own website. All of this takes way more technical acumen than I have but luckily at pre-birth character creation while I did use a bunch of retarded things as dump stats and took a few negative perks to free up more space I pretty much just rolled on a high /INT/ character under the assumption I could work my way out of any jam the negatives cause. I know I can do this if I overcome my own laziness and enforce the strictest of discipline to singlemindedly pursuing this project.

Where in fuck even it is
Oh right it's a spider not a stock market chart or whatever.

Anyway well let's see I guess I should actually keep a tight eye on my 3770kwhich I absolutely shouldn't be wasting my money on right now but otherwise good news today I finally jumped through hoops to get into stonks. It is actually quite irritating to have my privacy intruded upon to that granular a level but oh well. At least now I can have a real stock portfolio and not just shitcoinseven though one of them for some unknown reason did a 1000% profit just now and so I liquidated a good amount high and shifted it towards other coins thus leaving me like 20% profit in a month on that account.

However the irony is that the real stonks are actually imo much less valuable and far more risky to get into right now because I swear to God it's an overinflated bubble in every area of the economy and it is going to crash. I seriously consider myself at higher exposure trading on the US stock market right now than just investing into shitcoins. Yeah fuck it dude I'll see your $140 and I'll raise you cunt

I'd just like to interject for a moment What you're referring to as Linux, is in fact, GNU/Linux, or as I've recently taken to calling it, GNU plus Linux. Linux is not an operating system unto itself, but rather another free component of a fully functioning GNU system made useful by the GNU corelibs, shell utilities and vital system components comprising a full OS as defined by POSIX. Many computer users run a modified version of the GNU system every day, without realizing it. Through a peculiar turn of events, the version of GNU which is widely used today is often called "Linux", and many of its users are not aware that it is basically the GNU system, developed by the GNU Project. There really is a Linux, and these people are using it, but it is just a part of the system they use. Linux is the kernel: the program in the system that allocates the machine's resources to the other programs that you run. The kernel is an essential part of an operating system, but useless by itself; it can only function in the context of a complete operating system. Linux is normally used in combination with the GNU operating system: the whole system is basically GNU with Linux added, or GNU/Linux. All the so-called "Linux" distributions are really distributions of GNU/Linux.

Those utterly random hyphens are not making my headache better. Lack of paragraphing doesn't help either. I'll finish reading this later but I do agree with the idea, iirc read here, that people are backporting ideas of computers and technology onto themselves in ways that are false, to make them more like computers than other way around. I have long railed against cybernetics and many aspects of technology in spite of being a borderline techno-fetishist myself specifically because I am opposed to the social control, and to the way the tech will fit in the economic, geopolitical, and social order. For example you will likely have an implant that it is illegal to modify your own part's firmware, effectively becoming property of the corporation.

It is a more totality of turning man into slave than has ever before been proposed, with each grafted part not adding to the organism, but rather losing more of yourself, both physically, legally, and spiritually, to the extent that due to neoliberalism and globalism aka international Capitalism, rather than freeing us it will enslave us, just as due to the nature of our society automation and robots will impoverish rather than enrich us. There is no way around this because it is the nature of our awful flawed system itself. Were it another system, having an entire underclass of automatons would provide a life of leisure and scholarly pursuit, freed energy, enhanced production, abundance for everybody, as certain Marxists once proposed, as did the Venus Project; but instead, because of Capitalism all it means is a cyberpunk dystopia with massively burgeoning underclass and unemoloyment and homelessness, itself a self created problem necessitating a vast expansion of the police state and authoritarian powers. They will need even more dystopian methods of control, from blanket surveillance, to brutality, to camps, to something right out of the game Syndicate

>random hyphens/ Lack of paragraphing

I c/p ofc, paragraphing is like the original, just no empty line inbetween them (but the orginal doesn't have them neither).

Cybernetics proposes solutions by treating things like systems, by treating things digital (discretization) which means as distinct countable data that allow for mathematical operation, computation. Therefore cybernetics is perfect as operative tool.
The 60s counterculture was driven by visions of non-hierachical (anti authoritarian spirit of '68) socities (Fred Turner, 2006), the grass root network seemed the perfect political counter to topdown planning (also communist!), Turner anecdotically puts a quote from Steward Brands diary as kid or teen where he articulates his red scare, propelled by US propaganda we can suppose. Which brings us to the sacred image of individuality with these people.
Dieter Mersch, a German scholar said there are two camps in cybernetics: cybernetics as control tool for stability (of a system) or as bearers of emergence, of novelity (creative camp, counter culture strand).
What is introduced by cybernetics is very interesting as it also deals with question of the real and the symbolic. To this day I'm fascinated by it's operative rigor that we can see and also by the question what is a system, do we know if it is a system or do these people just treat is as system (and somehow successfully), what does this mean in general for humans, how much "truth" is in cybernetics and where are the limits of it as epistemology and its operative execution?

Herzog docu on various religious and superstitious practices in Russia, featuring many strange characters, probably the most normal one being a man who claims he is the reincarnation of Jesus (he actually gives a pretty convincing impression)

Hilarious disclaimer:
>Herzog, as he often does, embellished the story of the Lost City considerably, acknowledging his fabrications fully:
>"I wanted to get shots of pilgrims crawling around on the ice trying to catch a glimpse of the lost city, but as there were no pilgrims around I hired two drunks from the next town and put them on the ice. One of them has his face right on the ice and looks like he is in very deep meditation. The accountant’s truth: he was completely drunk and fell asleep, and we had to wake him at the end of the take."

Please see my above remarks. We are not talking about addressing racism at this point. We are talking about pure cargo culting and whole world must be muricaism at this point. No dude, not one single one of the fucking countries you just mentioned has cops shooting thousands of people a year. You do not have German police shooting black people in the back of the head. You may have racism, sure. But it's not your problem. These are not your problems. You are viewing it through this twisted lens of American corporate media and all the retards spouting domestic kulturkampf online. Seriously you may as well just take Turkish Cypriot issues or Brasilian domestic issues to be your own at that point. Adopting the stance of some faction or ideological trashcan here is basically retarded no matter how honest your intentions may be. It's like watching these foreigners parading around with Confederate flag patches or something. You just look and wonder what the hell.

BLM is ultimately not a police brutality movement at this point. It is a racially motivated racial solidarity movement. It's not that I think they're wrong or don't support them necessarily, but I know full well if I got shot by the cops a number of these assholes would just stand there thinking "GOOD now you know wut it feels like whitey." I'm not talking about the reasonable people. I mean who the media is pushing so it can be a source of discord rather than uniting people in the country around the fact our policy is shit, and our policing is shit partly out of design because they recruit shit people fire or force out the not-shit people and all the while expect cops to deal with shit like medical issues or mental health issues that isn't their fucking jobs.

I really like the lego-thread >>52263. Maybe we can have a toy thread where we discuss toys of our childhood.

My own experience was very German, but I hope some guys can relate to it.

Schleich Figurines. The details and realism are lovely. There is not much you can do with them, except for playing farm. To me, they were boring as old hell.

I had lots of toy cars. Matchbox and Hotwheels were OK, but my favorite car was a Siku T3-Bus in Bauknecht-livery, like this one. Mine looked a lot more used up. Damn, I loved that bus! I wish I still had it.

Both my brother and our cousin had Darda-sets. We would take lap times with a stop watch and clean and oil the engines.

I also liked Baufix very much, a construction toy for younger kids. You could build with it whatever you wanted, and I spent many hours happily putting wooden screws through wooden nuts. I played with it even when I was much too old for it.

Fair comments.
I was blinded by some inexplicable hatred of both characters, but I suppose the host was worse.
It's just the sort of discussion I deeply hate, all carried with this aura of wisdom and deep knowledge that the ancients supposedly had - even though he shat on new age people he might just very well be a more verbose intellectual edition of them. The reverence and tone in which he delivers his takes on symbolic analysis of concepts that are just too vague and can be protrayed in however manner you want.
It's not like it's just arabic mysticism he sticks to- it's this cross cultural archetype of le wise old mystic that operates incomprehensible to us silly westerners. I just felt like the host should get hit with the shovel of historical materialism, and his orientalist sidekick goes along with him.

>this aura of wisdom and deep knowledge that the ancients supposedly had

I think you misunderstand this as a new age alternative, this is not about bringing le real wisdom to viewers. Mohaghegh is a literature scholar his work especially this (Philosophy After Dark) and Omnicide are both conceptual (and this means literature and philosophy) and poetic as Robin Mackay said in the second link (Soundcloud). I think you mistake some philosophical-poetic yes he decided to mix this together, it can be done, after all this book does not get published in a XXX University Press work that is born out of (scholarly) interest of the Arabic speaking space and its history and culture for some deep spiritual insights. Of course, enchantment plays a role here, which is what I think bothers you. But enchantment is made obvious and both gone through in its function and as a concept, which I think new agism is would never do since it promises to connect to the cosmos in a direct link, there is no meta to be found in new agism, whereas Mohaghegh work does make it clear right from the beginning, while there is some ambivalence to it, of course, I think that is fruitful in making you think(R). Mohagheghs book that is discussed in that interview deals with the night and its entanglement with literature, so in what way does the night appear in (arabic) literature and instead of doing plain literature analysis of motives (which he also does e.g. criminality, secrecy) and what belongs to all of this, he extends it via ponderings of what effects the night has, what the night does to people, he does so by tracing certain archetypes or figures and their nights. This is quite a valid way to engage with a phenomenon. Basically, the night is conceptualized with Arabic literature as foil and as style. What separates it from pure analysis is the style, but this book does so with explicit intend, as I said it mixes analysis with poetics. If you don't like poetics or think poetics of other cultures are stupid then that is fine, but that is something different than your initial attack. And btw: the night and its importance in literature and as a natural, sensorial, and aesthetic phenomenon is also thought of in the west and probably all other cultures, in varying degrees, with perhaps sometimes overlapping thoughts and feels. Since he packs it with poetics, you think this is another new age sentiment that chooses the middle east instead of southeast Asia. I think it is perfectly fine to contrast the concept of the mystic as he developed it with predominant Instagram spiritualism in the US, as it underlines the notion of (apolitical) dedication of the mystic figure. What to make of it is another question, Mohagheg

I found 6.5 acres of land being sold for $110,000. Odd thing about it though is that it's been on sale since last year and nobody seems to be interested in it even though the other land for sale nearby are worth more. Is it because there's a creek flowing through the property that reduces its value? I'm seriously considering buying it now that I have some money saved up and want to fulfill my dream of owning a large amount of land.

You would be okay if you camped there. You just run into problems when setting up any sort of permanent structure there.

That would still be more permissible than what is legal in Germany. My mother owns a super enviro-protected meadow that can be legally grazed by sheep/goats/cows, as long as you don't built a stable.

Perhaps the land is polluted or is lacking in some sort of water, tree or mineral rights. I'd be asking questions to a council before buying any piece of earth.
