Old one autosage >>4705

Some nice music documentary about the German alternative Rock scene of the 60s and 70s, also known as Krautrock.

Krautrock - The Rebirth of Germany

Here's a little shorter video about Krautrock as well.

Well now that we have established this whole discussion was sparked by literal shitposting I guess I'll just conclude by saying no, this video the German poster isn't even remotely propaganda. I honestly almost wondered if you weren't just shitposting but fatposting through a proxy

But oh God, that one woman with her "I'm afraid of bugs" and all these damned yuppies sleeping on a lawn. You know what especially makes this unrealistic? Because they weren't arrested or hassled by cops, ever. Try even taking a nap on someone's hippity hoppity. To this day one of the things that's made me angry IRl was someone gave this one homeless dude $100.00 and the fucking Brueggers wouldn't let him buy any food. They flat out refused to sell him food even though he wasn't even begging in front of their store, so fuck that corporation.

Lastly I'd like to point out this part
Yes that is also actually true. In most places in this country if you eat food from a trash can you'll be arrested for stealing. Lots of cops will often look the other way as long as you never stop walking and just keep moving around, since you'll pretty much be told to leave or be arrested virtually anywhere not a public library it's probably a sad commentary that sounds like hyperbolic and unbelievable Soviet propaganda but literally 90% of the people in American libraries are homeless people because it's the one place you won't be arrested, and the other 10% is either college students or very poor people filling out job apps on corporate websites or whatever because they can't afford a computer but they don't stay long. The year is 2020AD, 40 years in the future in America, and only the homeless ever visit libraries, packed in there hiding from the cops.

>This just makes me wonder the legal status of old TVs and furniture left for trash removal or free depending where it is on a property line.

In Germany people just take it. Perhaps there do exist trials but it's common behavior that you search the stuff on the curb, waiting to be removed by the trash service of the city, to your liking and take whatever you want. People even drive around in vans and lookout for piles of bulk garbage. Because usually there are certain dates the trash services offers for that kind of removal.

>But oh God, that one woman with her "I'm afraid of bugs" and all these damned yuppies sleeping on a lawn. You know what especially makes this unrealistic? ...

I guess it's just a liberal middle class test ground to raise awareness a bit. So you sleep outside (experience) but it's on a property of people that are fine with it and that know about the experiment. The food search is the other experience maker, the women having to cancel it because her body built is not allowing for strolling thru heat without food tho... It was the moment the KC heritage sparks and I had to think of burger fatness. It was just too much of a classic memeworthy situation.

Fugazi: Instrument

Instrument is a documentary film directed by Jem Cohen about the band Fugazi. Cohen's relationship with band member Ian MacKaye extends back to the 1970s when the two met in high school in Washington, D.C..[1] The film takes its title from the Fugazi song of the same name, from their 1993 album, In on the Kill Taker.

I would like to have a thread to discuss various types of architecture.
There are lots of oddities out there, and many interesting things to talk about.
I think that I will make some stream-of-consciousness posts.

Earl Young was an American architect who, without formal training, developed his own regional style in the midwestern united states.

Earl used nothing but local materials, and his homes look very romantically medieval, but with modern fixtures. They have been called "mushroom homes", or "hobbit homes".

Nice posts. You seem more educated in this stuff than I am.

My problem with Asian urbanism is the absolute over-saturation of advertisements and signage. To a westerner like me, it looks cool when the hangul and hiragana is nothing more than exotic decoration. It's iconic, but it's a little overwhelming.
But in general, I would agree. Japanese urbanism in particular is top-tier.

>arrested sense of the importance of aesthetics to the religious experience.

Yes, I don't find that Protestant churches inspire a sense of the divine. But then, they generally believe that the divine isn't found in things of this world, and that it's useless to pour money into places of worship. Personally, Rococo churches are my favorite religious sites from an aesthetic perspective.

Just struck my mind. About 10 years ago when I first stumbled across the fascinating postwar US history and society (and its "decline"), I also became aware of Neutra. It was a short fad, never bought a photobook as intended.

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.

Exorbitantly so. Not just in terms of maintenance and equipment and all that as well as being typically much more difficult to care for than cold or freshwater, but the fish themselves easily run into the hundreds of dollars for the smallest setup and the typical marine fish is easily like $40. In fact I'd say that $40 is pretty standard from what I've seen at a LFS with the absolute cheapest marine fish tending towards $20 a piece, and with the more expensive ones quite easily running up into $70 or $120 for even just one specimen.

Oh wow some of these are actually pretty cheap apparently

That yellow tang alone is close to a $50 fish.
A piece.
Now look at how many of those he had and you do the math. Iirc I saw a blue spot fish and a few parrot fish and so on, and the Tangs are probably the cheaper ones he's got.

Here's another list to give you an idea

Is it me or the world is going to the shitter maybe slowly but without any brakes at all?

It feels like US got overextended and after the crisis started retreating, the retreat isnt stopping any time soon and the territories that are being left starting falling into chaos. Shit is happening in the borders of Europe for like a decade now but it feels like its ready to spill over Europe...

Dear Ernst. It has come to my attention that I am completely lacking material goods in my life to satisfy my empty heart.
Have you, in recent times, grown excited for any piece of technology (phone, ereader,etc) or car or anything costing money that has piqued your pea brained attention span?

We had a thread on old EC and there were a handful of people trying to lose weight this summer.

Have you made any more progress? Anyone starting to try who wasn't back then?

What are your methods and routines? What is your diet like?

I really wish that German vegetarian poster from KC that yelled at people for avoiding carbs was here. That was always really fun.

Personally, I think my goal of 19 bmi was a bad idea. I don't think there's much health benefit of being that compared to 21 or 22. I weigh what I did at 13 years old now. I'm really happy about that but while it looks good for my stomach it looks worse in other places. I'm probably going to stop here.

I'm most interested in the Finn who had a goal he wanted to reach by July.

>i really think once you get up to 5k or 6k and you're feeling good, you can just say fuck it and run a 10k, just like that.
Well, you were right. I went out yesterday, intending to do a brief run, but my legs were feeling great and so I just kept going. It honestly felt like a "fuck it" moment, as in "let's see what these months of training have accomplished". I didn't quite make 10km, though, but did 9. That was my phsyical limit, as I stopped after trying to lift my leg for the next stride-and it didn't. A weird feeling, but not in a bad way. There was no cramping, just exhaustion.
You know one thing that I think actually helped, was running on an unmarked route(normally I know my half-mile markers). It prevented me from mentally quitting after going a certain distance. I didn't actually know how far I had gone until marking it later using Gb.mapometer.com.
That site also provides elevation data. I decended from a height of 63ft, all the way down to 42ft! Like I said before, this is a very flat area.

Oh, and I've been getting more motivation from rap/hip-hop lately, so it's only a matter of time before I throw in some of those techno beats :D.

i don't care about weight or muscles/shape, yet i had some minor problems with accumulating weight recently

i joined the "hardcore" taoist diet about a year ago now im only losing weight since then while doing absolutely nothing (except not eating shit foot that i always hated i don't even buy shitfood its my relatives who cook it)

similar experience was when i was vegan but i switched back to vegetarian due to b12 issues tho i find it nicer to be vegetarian + taiost diet (its not even diet, just avoiding eating shit)

basically all you need to know

following is extremely easy im pretty much not going back :)

I've just released the indie game that I've been working on for the last months in early access mode on Steam. Please consider playing it and let me know about feedback for the final release (planned in spring).

The game is about a college student who gradually alienates from the social scene and ends up becoming consumed by his thoughts. His behavior becomes more and more erratic and in the end there is a climax.

not sure why you didn't put this in the vidya thread but I guess it deserves its own. Downloaded it.

I can't stand and hate the fact to no end that "visual novel" has become nothing but a byword for weeb shit and more hentai anime trash. That shovelware was clogging my goddamn screen so much it was the one and only thing that actually forced me to figure out a way to filter my recommendeds and such. To this day -anime is my one omitted tag, in addition to -nudity, because for some fucking reason a lot of anime trash still was getting around that filter. Since blocking -nudity from my results too I have been unharrassed by such spam.

God anime is such garbage. I simply cannot believe how much of it is polluting steam.

I am particularly annoyed by this just because "visual novel" basically describes a broad array of games that I actually like. For instance Planescape Torment and Tides of Numenera can both much more easily be called a visual novel than anything else--and no, I don't mean "comic book" bullshit either I mean a game that is actually much more like an interactive book than anything else. The main problem is if it's a good book, which in many cases it is not. P:T and T:ToN are both technically crpgs but really they're so far gone to that direction that I would basically describe them as visual novels, thus, I am constantly fucking angry whenever I see shit thrown around like "VN" because weeb garbage has basically tainted the tag to being nothing but hentai waifu shit.

Same. You write who you know, I guess?
Feels like the "increasingly detached outsider protag" is a response to contemporary culture and norms, so it's something the creative types can hang on to. Plus I don't doubt that a good chunk of imageboard users can be described as students/recent graduates with deteriorating/nonexistent social lives who end up consumed by their own anxieties/delusions.

I think we could use a thread for community events besides Radio Ernstiwan, but in the same spirit.

On that subject, tomorrow at 12pm noon Pacific Time (9pm in Central Europe), I will set up a room in cytube so that we can view documentaries and have serious discussions about them. All suggestions for quality documentaries on Youtube and Vimeo are appreciated, but if possible I encourage you to find a documentary relating to your home country, region, or city. For now we're stuck with hosted videos, but once we figure out a scheme for streaming from hard drive, we'll move over to that.

Ideally, this will be a weekly thing. If Saturdays at 12:00 Pacific/21:00 Central Europe don't work for you, tell us what time does work, so that we can schedule a better time next week.

Currently on Saturday's playlist:
A quaint piece of 1960s Americana, in the form of a charmingly optimistic documentary about my hometown in particular, and the problem of urban sprawl in general. Might be followed up by Fresno: The City Addicted to Crystal Meth.

If the list runs out, I know a few channels with a lot of really good content that we'll never exhaust.

So, cytu.be lets you stream videos stored in Google Drive, although you have to install Greasemonkey and a user script...

Feels a little sketchy, but if you guys are alright with it, this would let us watch whatever we want. Would be great for serious movie/documentary nights.

picrelated is a capture of people on cytu.be streaming a Harry Potter movie from Google Drive, so I know this is possible.

Sorry man, but there was nobody else in the room so I just gave up after half an hour. With such a small userbase on this site, it's pointless to do this without multiple people indicating that they'll be there, before the event starts.

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.

Also recommending some german Lieder, you can find the translated lyrics online (and should really read them).

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.
