i actually had never heard that album of quebec outtakes until recently forgot the name. it was white and blue and looked like quebecs cover. blew me away

tho i guess you could say this is a b-side album.

now dont get me wrong, i like the polished stuff too, and their music definitely needed that to really shine. but as a musician, those early tapes are something special. everyone who plays makes demo tapes like that. super raw, super individual, seemingly devoid of outside inspiration, but rarely are they as good as that one.
feel the same way about the pod too. they were hardly conscious while recording that album and it sounds like literal shit, but those songs man...

I really love the mollusk outtake album, if only for that slower version of Ocean Man. I wish they'd kept it. unfortunately, no solo.

I would classify Ween as the fabled genre of new sincerity. It's sincerity disguised as irony. They might seem like they're mocking the various genres they parody at fist, but every single song they make to capture a certain genre is a sincere tribute to that genre, behind the silliness.

It's amazing how they can make a song named "she fucks me", with lyrics like "pork roll egg and cheese" genuinely emotionally moving: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lr-20b6_3rg

Hello. Let me introduce me. I used to post on Krautchan, as the bunny chilean bernd. Since it demise a few months ago i decided it was a good time to take some time to do more productive things in my shitty life. Things are going smoother now, so i guess, since i have more time, i could go back and start posting again in some imageboard. After looking wide and long on the new colonies of good'ol KC, i have decided to settle here, for a while. I wish this place was a little more active, since there threads alive from June on the front page, and this place gives me the vibes more than a light version of Northpole than KC.
Since i dont want to waste a thread on a presentation, this is my third bunny. I got it from an old lady who captured her, and gave it to me because she didnt had any space to take care of it. Shes wild, so i had big trouble taking her out of her cave that day.

I think if you are literally food on feet by design and your only survival strategy is running away trying to be faster than the hungry thing following you, once you are trapped in a cage, you have no other choice but to appear friendly.

It actually is less likely to work with prey animals I think, since they can't afford to be as not skittish as predators and their survival depends on being paranoid and suspicious of everything. Plus it's not like they wouldn't immediately have the chance to flee once they're out of the cage.

Let's talk about operating systems.

Windows:
I've used vista, 7, and 10 over the years, and 7 was definitely the best. I didn't mind vista, despite the memes about crashes.
10 is flat nonsense design wise, and there are a number of big problems. Telemetry, forced updates, and text scaling to name a few.
It baffles me that Microsoft can get by with producing complete shit with their money and market share.

Mac:
I got a used macbook a few years ago when I was in the market for a laptop, and I really do enjoy it. It runs everything I need, it's efficient, and it doesn't look like shit.
If macs weren't so fucking expensive, I would buy one to replace my main machine.

Linux:
I really do love Linux. You can make it into anything you want. I used it a lot as a teen. But the problem with Linux is a lack of software support.

When you do CAD for money, the customer usually has requires that a specific software is used.

For electrical CAD, this might for example be Zuken E3, Promis.e or EPlan. What do you tell a new customer who asks
>Can you do electrical engineering in Promis.e
?
>No, sorry, we use Linux as an operating system, we only do gschem and kicad
And sales will have to find projects where it's OK to use those, which is fine and dandy, as long as the drafters don't insist on getting paid every month. And at this point, we are not even talking about getting part libraries, which for gschem, is spectacularly horrible.

Can you get other stuff than kicad running on Linux with wine etc.? Probably yes, but enjoy telling management

that's news to me. afaik construction bureaus operate using only one cad system e.g. nx, solid works, catia for a number of reasons (service, security and costs to name but a few). and frankly i've never heard customers dictating devs and engineers what specific tools, computers and operating systems they ought to employ.

>networking
it's a communication suite for simatic.
>TIA-Portal for Linux.
i pointed to that specific site because there you can see what siemens sps devs generally think about linux being "shit". siemens offers now a complete debian based mini os dedicated to simatic and i'm pretty sure a linux build of tia-portal will be around rather sooner than later, too. meanwhile there's michael büsch's s7 software, which is foss and runs under linux, of course.

I've recently bought a 1/3 ounce 24k gold ring and also have 25 ounces of silver coins. If I get a chance in the coming weeks I will try to buy a 1/2 ounce gold coin near spot price. The gold ring is 24k because I was kinda butthurt that when you buy any piece of jewellery it immediately depreciates to its metal content. Since I've bought it 2 days ago, it has increased in value by 2%.

I am not a financially minded person but when I look at the economy and labour situation around me I don't feel confident whatsoever.

There are all sorts of things from the US inversion curve to the manufacturing, shipping and retail indexes all showing significant trouble. It really feels like this thing is waiting to explode.

Didn't like it much, it was often very cringey, especially with its references (like, one dude's name is Weyland, and the other's Yutani — why? Yeah, Alien was a great movie, did they hope that this movie will be a little bit better if they reference it? Or a dude screaming "Shoryuken!" when he shoots a gun — makes no sense whatsoever, but hey, nerdy stuff!). The one good thing about it was Brad Dourif's performance, and only because how entertainingly over-the-top it was.

Hardware (1990) was much cooler, IMO, and it had a kickass soundtrack to boot.

I agree with >>22331 about Brad Dourif's performance. He was brilliant and the movie is worth watching just for his scenes. His over-the-top acting reminded me of a subtle Jim Carrey.
The writer/director did make some bad naming decisions. It was too obvious and the names stood out every time they were mentioned. If he wanted to honor Ridley Scott he should have just added an easter egg, instead of naming a major character Scott Ridley. Maybe he wanted to wink at the audience by adding small moments where the movie was aware that it was a movie. That was the feeling I had when one character said the Terminator line "I'll be back". It seemed like the director wanted to break up the tension by briefly pulling viewers out of the scene. Still, for me these were only a minor annoyances in an otherwise good movie.

The soundtrack is exactly what saved Hardware for me, especially "The Order of Death" by Public Image Ltd. Nice cameo from Lemmy, too. To be honest, the film fell apart after the second act for me. And that sequel hook really pissed me off at the end. I later found out the intended sequel never got off the ground due to disputes over the rights to the script. Oh well.

Still, the film has a great aesthetic and awesome score to boot.

Ernst, I pretty much hate green politics.

Look, I'm a quite green person myself. I want to save the planet from fucking up it's weather cycles, I want to clean oceans, fresh air and water for people and animals, especially in asian regions. Meanwhile I life in one of the countrys who have all the means and status to help humanity to achieve this.

But what do we do? Green politics. And people don't even get how much bullshit wellness circle jerk politics it is for some 'innovative' companies nobody really needs in countries like Germany.

If we would take the meme CO2 'production' as a benchmark, we can clearly see how we just contribute something like 2%. This clearly correlates with the wealth and technological competence of a nation. Especially countries which are on the way to become somewhat first world tier, contribute massively to climate change and especially sea and air pollution.

So what do we need? Sure! More solar panels and pinwheels in countries like Germany which don't fucking contribute to le climate change whatsoever. Meanwhile India is fucking up the environement beyond repair (because they don't have a choice to make it different, silly) and we don't think for a second that the green policy with the most impact would mean, that we have to send e.g. air filters or osmosis filter to india and with that the personal to teach them how to maintain such tech. For free! Tax paid! That would the only thing that would help Le Planet, but nooo, that's so uncomfortable. I mean sure I like earth and shit but buying fair trade ginger aloe vera latte gotta be enough right? Let's jerk off together some more be like totally green and stuff and care about what kind of fucking fuel our cars use.

You can also fetishize science, and this is definitely happening today. How many of these people who "fucking love science" and "have The Science™ on their side" have read a scientific paper on the topic they are interested in? How many could? They don't believe The Science™, they believe whatever somebody told them is The Science™, which means that the scientific part is the least important one. Science is a religion or a brand in the eyes of the public, a mysterious authority to appeal to in a (usually political) debate, and this is more and more the case with supposed scientists as well.

I've seen so many shit studies that do completely invalid statistical dick pulling under ridiculous assumptions to arrive at nonsense conclusions you wouldn't believe it. Oh, but it has a p-value under 5%, that's like really sciency!! No, I don't know what a p-value is, why do you ask? But the study says what I want to hear, so clearly it's true.

The eco faggots and the general "left" have a really bad case of this fetish, but I think that's just due to the political make-up of academia. It's everywhere across the political spectrum, you can see it with /pol/ types and economic liberals as well.

I often feel jealous of people who live like this, in a trailer or caravan even though I know I couldn't stomach it myself. It seems like they're so free to live on the road as they do.

It's a lifestyle I can't imagine having for myself, but it's something that I want to live vicariously through others and seems full of adventure. There's something especially cosy about videos made by these people in snowstorms, or when they're snowed in and trying out a new stove or some such thing.

I reckon if I were 20 years younger again back when I had a cushy job before all the labour in the 1st world became worthless and careers were starting to become a thing of the past, I would have saved up for some kind of A-liner or RV and lived out of it. It would have been a hell of a blast in the 80s and 90s Ireland.

Seriously, watch a few of these videos and tell me it isn't maximum comfy

You mean Unterschicht is Unterschicht? Ofc rich people will show off their class, but they will do it differently. They could go on vacation in a tiny house, but it's an expansive one. Living in an Altbau flat in Berlin-Mitte is more desired than some big 7 room house in some shitty Neubauviertel. What you leave out here is the crass individualization, that is not so refined with the people you seem to deal with on a daily basis. I'm sorry your working mates are bydlo average joes, but you shouldn't take them as the template for every human bean, that is your mistake. Take me for example, I don't care if you go by bike thru Poland or hang out at an Egyptian hotel pool. Probably Poland is more interesting since I'm bored by Egyptain hotel pools.

Well, if we extrapolate that analogy, then human civilization indeed goes "against" nature, in that the human species instead of being part of nature, bends nature to its will.

In fact, Marx used Hegelian dialectic to posit that communism is the natural progression of evolution: the environment shaped man to have the ability to shape the environment, which in turn shapes man again.
The natural "chaotic" state of the world (analogous to capitalism) gives man tools, with which he bends the environment and creates socialism, and socialism cultivates man into a communist - a post-history, post scarcity man, a sort of "ubermensch" who wasn't ideologically conditioned by the class war, and operate on a completely different worldview and framework.

Marx was a big fan of Darwin.

yet he was too brainlet to understand him as he never received any kind of nature science related education.

darwin's theories say a big fuck you to deterministic theories, considering marx was a big and also very unsuccesfull determinist, it's safe to say the guy is not right about anything whatsover.

Oh goddamnit is everyone fleeing cabbagechan for some reason?

If this is pedobrit pls go


Also I think your analogy is pretty good but still somewhat inappropriate since Capitalism always seems to devolve into either a heavily regulated market where market forces hijack the machinery of government and large forces quash all competition through oligopoly friendly regulation or there is little to no government in which case over time wealth becomes concentrated so much that each megacorp becomes defacto government and society looks like Snowcrash or some other cyberpunk dystopia.

Frankly I think that a lot of the rationalization pro-Capitalists use is pretty similar to the same sort of utopian vision a lot of Communists use for their ideology. It is ultimately a pretty shit system and the problem is we are not different species and Capitalism is an inherently alienating and destructive system.

One could just as easily try to make the argument that Communism is like creating a stable environment or climate for the workers to create a system of interdependence themselves where the members of the ecosystem rely on each other and making it out to be the utopian vision rather than the reality, just like the reality in Capitalism is that you're always going to wind up with a Walmart making everybody dependent on it for the benefit of a tiny number of people who aren't even any longer a member of that community or even society while consciously forcing people to accept worse and worse conditions both in the workplace and in terms of pricing like the way cable companies and especially phone companies like trying to fuck their consumers with nickel and diming and shit contracts.
