Thought this would be a fun idea. Each week there will be a theme or prompt. Draw something relating to that idea and post it here. You can put as much or as little effort into the drawing, this is all just for fun. New topics will be posted some time on Sunday.

Perhaps a bit obvious, but warm tones and fallen leaves are the definition of autumn for me.

Let's talk about the books/manga/etc that you are reading.

I'm halfway through After Dark by Haruki Murakami and I'm loving it, already bought another 3 books from him to read after this one

It is a truth universally acknowledged that Murakami Haruki novels seem always similar to other Murakami Haruki novels.

Why might that be, and why does no one level that accusation at Jane Austin.


I'm currently reading the fifth installment of the Dune series - Heretics of Dune - albeit I'm not the biggest fan. I'm halfway through, and it feels like it won't get close to God Emperor of Dune.

I've also started with a translation of Ursula K. Le Guins "The Dispossessed" in my native tongue. I already have an English copy of it, but the form factor and small text makes it near impossible for me to read.


I've always felt uneasy about reading translations if I know the original language. Feels wrong.


I think it depends how well the translation is made and how much the story depends on its original language.

For myself, if I read older English books I often have to look up words which can become a fun killer, especially when I'm tired and reading after work

I sometimes draw maids for fun. Since I think this place is nice and relaxing, I wanted to set up shop and have a fun little Maid thread.

I have on occasion, but never executed. It does seem like a good way to break from my comfort zone.


These have a real Disney-like feel to them. It would be interesting to see if you picked up animation like Richard Williams and do something with your style from there.

That's definitely a consideration, though I want to focus first on getting some more context/story in to these drawings. I think that's one of the things they're missing at the moment. While I'm not confident enough to do a comic yet, I do want to have more lively illustrations.

>Try being yourself, actually doing this that you enjoy rather than interneting..

Best advice. Life's too short to be bothered with media you dislike. No point in consuming something out of a false sense of nostalgia or because others talk about it.


Breaking news: Matt Walsh and the conservatives are afraid of anime and think its Satanic.



I like your construction of phrasification dude where'd u learn to speak such a way?


File: 1666432653753.jpg (780.24 KB, 700x720, ayu117.jpg)

For me it is the other way around lately. I have rediscovered some of the stuff I used to like 10 to 15 years ago and was surprised how much I'm able to enjoy them.

Changing is painful, if you try to fight it and cling to your treasured memories of the times, when you actually enjoyed the things, that have lost their meaning to you.

It's like trying to rescue a plant, that has nurtured the soil. You have to repot it for further growth and to repot it, you need new soil and a new pot. The soil is the experiences you made since back in the day, the new stuff you found, new people you met. The pot is your mind, expanded by your experience to comprehend and cherish new and old things alike.


Anime becoming mainstream has been the biggest mistake.

Let's post our favourite movie of all time or a great movie you recently watched.

I'll start.

My favourite movie is Kubrick's Dr. Strangelove. The movie is amazing, very funny while maintaining the seriousness of the topic. [spoiler]The Coca-Cola part is fantastic[/spoiler].

Another movie that also really like is Persepolis (yeah, I'm reposting from the .tokyo thread). It's an animation film that tells the story of the author during and after the Islamic revolution. The art is quite unique and the main character is lovely!

I don't really have a favorite film, but one I've recently watched and really enjoyed was If Don Juan Was A Woman starring Brigitte Bardot (and featuring Jane Birkin). Apparently this was Bardot's last film before her retirement from acting, and I really, really loved her in this movie. The scene design has a touch of genius to it, with crazy house concepts and a mood that reflects the direction of the plot. The camerawork is also beautiful and sensual, and the story premise is original and daring. It reminded me of a much more recent film, The Love Witch, which seems to try to accomplish a similar sor tof story but with far, far less style. Where The Love Witch has to resort to campiness, Don Juan delivers itself with sheer sexiness and drama. It's like an intoxicating perfume designed for evening wear. I love it.

when I was a young child, I loved youtube. I subscribed to many channels. Most were comedy, some were news. smosh, fred, a lot of the big guys. some more esoteric people who I can't entirely remember, like this woman who sat at her desk and worked for a media company as a youtuber. eventually the company shut her channel down.

I stumbled upon one creator who I remember a great deal. her name was allofthetrash. I enjoyed her bizzare, low-res letsplays of unheard of cartridge games from the 70s and 80s. at some point I stopped watching the videos, and she eventually deleted her channel.

I still look for those videos, but have yet to find any.

as I grew older, I would find my way into internet communities. a chatroom in kingdom of loathing. the official forum for a web-based video game about forum trolls.

my favorite was the /r9k/ room in a mouse-themed multiplayer platforming game. edbye, oldliquids. lexie. funny people and a funny game.

but I always ended up getting banned or exiled from these communities. always eschewed. this pattern held strong through my teens. I don't think I was in control. It was autonomous.

I didn't go to high school. I went to community college. I had friends, and that let me think I was socially well-adjusted. But eventually I would use extreme political views would as a way of pushing them away.

You can construct a digit sequence guaranteed not to be on the list. But that digit sequence is not guaranteed to be a natural number. The digits of a natural number have some finite length beyond which you only get spaces/zeros, but the digit sequence you get can be infinitely long with infinitely many nonzero digits.


an infinite string representing a natural number always has infinite trailing zeroes. the diagonal of that set of strings thus ends with an inversion of those infinite trailing zeroes, which is a string of trailing ones. thus the inversion isn't natural.

you can make it just barely harder for yourself by counting the natural numbers out of order so that the inversion isn't a string of trailing ones, but it doesn't take long to realize that the closest you can get is an infinite set of mixed ones and zeroes.


>The diagonal argument says nothing about numbers.
>It invites you look at strings.
Interestingly, a trascendental number can only be described as the limit of an ever-shrinking neighbourhood. This in sharp contrast with rational and algebraic numbers, which are still managed as discrete, independent entities. The reals are the promise that if you zoom in "enough" (ie infinitely) you won't find a gap, as you do with the rationals, and with trascendentals like e or π from the algebraic perspective.
So reals are strings, in a sense. For example a natural number, say 1, can be the limit of a neighbourhood (0.999…, 1.00000…1), from the perspective of the Reals. When you look at a string, you're looking at (a representative of) the cauchy sequence which is an equivalence class of all the neighbourhoods with the same limit.
Since a real number is an infinite process, and not an entity like we think of naturals and their successors, you can arrange the terms of that process in such a way as to make up a diagonal argument.
The resulting string would be unique because by changing any one digit (here a digit is any one element of the infinite sequence that identifies a real number) results in "tilting" the remaining neighbourhoods in such a way that further down they won't overlap anymore (you can prove this with ε-δ method.)


File: 1666068719466.png (25.09 KB, 500x250, Oekaki.png)

Any real, x, with a finite amount, n, of digits after the decimal can be represented by the rational x*10^n / 10^n. Only real numbers that would require an infinite number of digits are members of the reals and not members of the rationals, so it's kinda funny to say that there are gaps in the rationale since for any real number you can get a rational arbitrarily close to it with an arbitrarily large numerator and denominator… is that not the case?


hey there sushi. saw this looking through the conveyerbelt tonight and was awfully shocked. don't know how you will take this but morgan and i were friends and i just wanted to, set the record straight and let you know she might have been murdered. i think that matters, the not knowing.
friends of mine published some poetry of hers about sonic the hedgehog and many other things in our magazine last year, if youd want to read it. thank you for being here

Favorite Japanese movies?

pic related is mine
45 posts and 22 image replies omitted. Click reply to view.


I have this movie on my to watch list for years by now. Next weekend I will finally give it a try!

My favorite Japanese movie is "Summer Time Machine Blues". It's a lovely story and I enjoyed the humor.

For a more serious tone, I would say "The Emperors Naked Army Marche On". If you haven't seen this documentary now, you should. The characters involved are quite fascinating, the ending left me a bit sad though.


File: 1644958515232.jpeg (257.37 KB, 1400x1013, bella2-1400x1013.jpeg)

belladonna of sadness is probably one of my favorite films period. it's a drama that intercuts animation and storyboard-like sequences. it's style over substance so definitely not for everyone but pretty incredible if it is your thing


File: 1645539280910.jpeg (50.44 KB, 511x600, kino.jpeg)


Thank you sushi roll
I don't know if you're still here but Eureka was a nice watch
I hope you're doing well fellow sushi


It seems odd to me that there is mention of the astonishing "Fish Story". Not just the best Japanese movie; the very best of all movies.

File: 1656775826550.jpg (2.11 MB, 1920x1080, unknown-rail1.jpg)


I've watched a good bit of anime in the past, and a lot of what makes one appealing to me is when it's both pretty, and on the spectrum from comfy to melancholy that sushichan is sort of about. But I've never watched much other TV, except for whatever trash was on to kill time when I was younger, and it would be good to branch out more.

Does anyone have recommendations for shows that have that kind of vibe? From how people talk about movies it seems like that's more common in them, but sitting down for a whole film is a commitment while a shorter episode format is easier to just relax and watch some of.


Does it have to be live action? I don't watch a lot of TV that isn't anime but I quite like Over the Garden Wall, pretty cute and interesting short animated series.
