Do any of you Sushis like fashion?
Are there any designers you like?
I think my favorit desingner is Iris van Herpen.
Her dresses look so other-earthy and natural :D

Wow, those are incredible.
I am interested in fashion but in a more…pragmatic way. As in, I'm interested in clothes that I could conceivably own and would probably wear (basically high street brands. Probably a little boring if you're into bespoke designers). I have a couple of items that I own because I think they look amazing but very rarely wear (pic related) either because I don't want to damage them or they are difficult to pull off.

I'm a big fan of Evisu clothes too, I think the daicock motif is a really stylish piece of branding. Some of there more outlandish clothes can be a bit much, but it's cool to see a high street brand that is willing to make such bold designs

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

Recently finished reading Rendezvous with Rama, started reading Magician by Raymond E. Feist. I read Magician and the rest of the Riftwar Saga back when I was a kid.


Ooh, I remember liking Rama as a kid. Nothing really "happens" in that book, but there's still something gripping about it.

Been reading Don Quixote on my work breaks. Really enjoyable book, its shockingly similar to modern novels in its style and prose. After that I am going to read The Fall of Gondolin by Tolkien.
Let me know what you think about the Silmarillion, I really like that work.

Picked up Isaac Asimov's Foundation in the beggining of the month and been reading it a few pages everyday when i find the time.
The worldbuilding is something really amazing and characters are incredibly well written and 3 dimensional
I can see why it is considered one the most important science fiction work of all time
I will be getting the sequels


File: 1634258349171.jpg (17.1 KB, 191x300, nooooo.jpg)

Just finished Inside Mr. Enderby and am about to finish the other 3 books in the series. They're pretty comedic, a bit immature, romps about a flatulent poet, a good 5 of the big gags in the book are fart jokes, and his adventures ranging from cheating accusations to drunk antics. I think the main standout of the book is how it manages slapstick comedy pretty well for a non visual medium.
The book got a bit frustrating at the end when Enderby hooks up with a rich milf, he was living off his moms money and his poetry before her, but abandons her because he can't take being an adult. They were a good-ish couple to, so it was a shame to see them break up. It didn't help Enderby abandoned her without telling either. The story has those complex character vibes, so you can understand his actions and still want him to be better.
Also yes this is by the guy who wrote clockwork orange. The book is surprisingly like clockwork orange as both stories follow a person alienated from society who get a chance to be redeemed, but give it up only to be saved last second. Enderby being an ex-catholic and writer also makes the story a bit of a writers insert.

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.

Fortunately things never got that bad, but I wasn't able to think straight any amount of time, and drawing required brain power that I just couldn't give. Even so, I was determined to keep up with the practice, so I went right back to it when I could.

Honestly I'm more surprised peeps here actually remembered this set of work enough to recognize a drawing of mine near instantly.

I figured the kind of outfit I was working with was actually a waitress' dress rather than a maid's, but by the time I really started realizing that, I had already established it as an aesthetic, so I kept going with it. I intend to play around with the designs more later, I do like experimenting with visuals like that.



nice trips and welcome back sushi!

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 feel like a grumpy old man who doesn't understand the new world from time to time and Gran Torino, aside from just generally being good, pleases that part of me

The Mule.
Unsurprisingly also Clint Eastwood.


not really the right thread for this but i watched 120 days of sodomy recently and it was a huge redpill



Also I tried watching The Blackcoat's Daughter and Irreversible (2002) but they were super boring . Also thinking of rewatching Nosso Lar and Sausage Party (Super Satanic Movie)…


I just finished "Tintin and the Mystery of the Golden Fleece" (Tintin et le mystère de la toison d'or), which I believe was the first original Tintin story not written by Hergé. This is not an objective review because the last time I read a full Tintin adventure was in 2014 and I had a few drinks when I watched the film, so bear with me.
I went in expecting to hate this film because I never liked the Tintin animated series and I was outright disgusted by Spielberg's 3D Tintin. The idea of Tintin with real actors sounded even worse than these animated versions, but I enjoyed it much more than I thought I would. I noticed that the IMDB score was 6,0 and if I had read more Tintin in the past seven years or so I might be more negative, but it was so nice to see Tintin, Captain Hadock, Dupont et Dupond (Thomson and Thompson in English, I believe), and Professor Tournesol again that I thoroughly enjoyed the film. It felt like a classic Tintin adventure. There is something about the Mediterranean that works very well with Tintin, in my opinion, so it was nice to see an adventure that was limited to Istanbul and Greece.
I kind of lost the plot near the end, but in terms of gags the film was fantastic. The highlight for me was Dupont having a watch that was 90 minutes behind Dupond and both of them deciding to 'fix' their watches so that Dupond was 90 minutes ahead of Dupont instead. The musical theme for the film was honestly perfect and really captured the spirit of a good Tintin adventure. All in all a very enjoyable film, but not quite the same as just reading one of the original comics.

Robocop, I feel like it perfectly captures what a film should be, it's as thematically and artistically accessible as you want it to be. Can be a cool action piece about just shooting bad guys, can be some shit about the loss of identity and the progressive devalue of the individual in society or something
yeah it's good


Is anyone else fascinated with the superintelligence trope in books and movies? I've been looking for different stories with similar ideas.

Check out "True names" and "cookie monster" by verner vinge. I might just have nostalgia for them, but they seem like nice narrative exploration of computer intelligence.

Audition (1999 film) is so overrated


File: 1629877261045.jpg (216.63 KB, 1920x1080, April.Story.1998.1080p.Blu….jpg)

A few Shunji Iwai films have already been posted. I also like his lighter stuff, so Love Letter (1995) and April Story (1998) are two cute and comfy films.

I don't like Swallowtail Butterfly (1996)… It has some interesting ideas but I think it ultimately comes off as pretentious.


Tokyo story is my favourite film. I love everything by ozu, I dont think any other director even comes close to his mastery of cinematography. If you haven't seen any films by him, I can't recommend them enough. Be warned though, they are very slow and deliberate in their pacing, so dont expect a fast paced action thrill ride or anything.
If you do want a fast paced action thrill ride, I really like the film electric dragon 80,000v. It's really short, and very fast paced. It seems these days tetsuo the iron man is a cult classic which lots of people know, I'd say if you liked that you would like electric dragon 80,000v. Also if you are a fan of noise music and guitars you will like it, lots of cool noise guitar, with a punk attitude throughout. What a fun film.

What're some comfy anime series?

I'm relatively new to anime and am looking for something slow paced in story line, and atmospheric in terms of soundtrack/sound design or animation. Only ones I can think of are Mushishi and House of Five Leaves.

Hi No Tori is now one of my new favorites. It has the same empathy for life that you see in Mushishi and Kino's Journey.

The retro Tezuka art style is also fairly relaxing

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.

just make sure you get the checkered pattern in the right order! it's two black squares in the top row, and only one black square in the bottom row.

sometimes you see it done upside down…

Any manga/anime/VN with an atmosphere or story like nausicaa of the wind valley?
I would kill for something like it, as i am tired of the usual anime and manga tropes.


I would suggest doing a tour of all of Miyazaki's films. I find that all of his movies have a similar vibe that can't be parallel even by other Anime.


Sherlock Hound (1984)

First 6 episodes were directed by Miyazaki, he had to quit in order to work on Nausicaa. It’s much more light hearted.

You remember the scene "The seven days of fire" ? it’s was realized by Hideaki Hanno, who later on directed Neon Genesis Evangelion.

I’d recommend Berserk. The atmosphere isn’t exactly the same tho.


File: 1568162814334.jpg (304.85 KB, 680x961, kurenai_no_buta.jpg)

You must watch Porco Rosso if you haven't already, I can't believe I put off watching it for so long, it's beautiful.


Mononoke Hime.
Tenkuu no Shiro Laputa.
Ima, Soko ni Iru Boku.


If you liked the ecological themes you might like Gon, which is a superb drawn story of a little dinosaur engaging with other animal forms. If you want a graphic novel there's Puma Blues which is a beatiful story as well.

This reminds me of that thing in art class where you'd color a sheet, paint it all black then scratch off the paint. This looks super rad.
