hello.

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.

The Martian is my favorite sci-fi book. Hard sci-fi in Mars exploration era, so no aliens or weird tech, just a bunch of nice people vs nature story.
Blindsight and other stuff by Peter Watts is good for depicting the future with more mind mods which it probably will have.
Cookie monster and True names and anything else by Vernor Vinge are awesome. My favorite author for early cyberspace stuff.
Life artificial is good and all online.

This thread is a time machine. Look at you all there in the past! Even one of my posts with a hard-to-believe date-stamp.

Three Body Problem is good. The pessimistic Dark Forest argument is persuasive; even compelling.

Recently I read Tau Zero by Poul Anderson and am drunk enough to give an unsolicited opinion: to wit -
It is one of those "SF Masterworks" so we are probably obliged to read it. The writing is somewhat stilted, as if Poul knew that that he should have humans in his spaceship, but had only a rough, theoretical idea of how they work, and especially, how they talk. The scientific premise is good, though it might seem over-familiar these days to people who grew up with relativity. The implications get bigger as the story progresses, and the ending is as large-screen as you could get - literally cosmic. On the whole I give it 5/10 plus 2 points for being in the csushi roll. Worth reading.

Thanks for the Jean le Flambeur recommendation. I immediately downloaded and look forward to reading. When you said that "The Martian" is your favorite you mentioned no author and there are far too many hits on an internet search of "martian" for me to tell which book you like. Can you specify?

Currently trying to get into sci-fi right now I'm reading
>Blood Music
It's about a scientist who injects himself with some cells he's working on. It follows how said cells affected him and the world around him. It's not much of an action sci-fi story and more of a watch how shit goes down story. It's nice if you want details, but the characters are kind of flat and serve more as mechanisms for the story. It deals with themes of consciousness, hive minds (which is why I read it), and post humanism. The far side pick kind of reminds me of the book

>Biopunk Dystopias: Genetic Engineering, Society and Science Fiction

It's academic so you need to know a few literacy concepts, but it's nothing you can't google. So far it just covered the history of biopunk and tried to define it, pretty interesting stuff. In later chapters it's supposed to define why modern culture likes biopunk so much.

I remember watching a rip of the movie when it first came out. Someone shot it in a movie theater or something, but I still got to watch the movie on youtube. I remember that memory very fondly.

>The Disappearance of Nagato Yuki-chan
I've actually seen that series, but sadly I didn't find it to be that good. The new Nagato in that series was too clumsy and moe I guess. I liked the version of her in the world of the Disappearance of Haruhi more. While she was shy and nervous, she wasn't nearly as dumb or as irrationally shy as in the spin-off. The best part of the spin-off was the actually the "Disappearance of Nagato Yuki-chan" arc in episodes 10-13 in which the personality of the old Nagato from the original series comes back for a bit.

Yeah the Yuki-chan anime kinda sucked. Sad case because I even watched Haruhi for the first time ever in preparation for it, since it somehow passed me by back when it was actually popular. At least watching all of endless of 8 in one sitting getting progressively more drunk while texting a friend was a fun experience.

Watched Padak. It follows the small society formed in a restaurants fish tank as they try to escape or cope with their eventual death. The film gets pretty depressing as multiple main characters die trying to escape or get served as food, with he implication they're still alive. The CGI animation is a passable telltale games level, but it really shines with the short 2D animated songs. Although the songs are were the film gets somewhat un subtle, the most blatant being the end song that out right states the movies thesis.

The most interesting part about the movie is that it's entire point was to be an anti-fishing, or even vegan, movie yet it isn't over the top in how it expresses those themes, outside the songs. It doesn't come off as patronizing and the movie is fully enjoyable even if you disagree its points.

Going through The Craftsman by Richard Sennett. Quite interesting so far. Here are some quotes.

“Craftsmanship names an enduring, basic human impulse, the desire to do a job well for its own sake.”

“Issac Stern rule: the better your technique, the more impossible your standards.”

“Developments in high technology reflect an ancient model for craftsmanship, but the reality on the ground is that people who aspire to be good craftsmen are depressed, ignored, or misunderstood by social institutions. These ills are complicated because few institutions set out to produce unhappy workers. People seek refuge in inwardness when material engagement proves empty; mental anticipation is privileged above concrete encounter; standards of quality in work separate design from execution.”

I agree with the readers who say Murakami keeps banging the same drum. He wrote his heart and kept pouring it out over several titles. For me that works. The repetition ensures that you don't miss his obsessions. I find it pleasant - the expectation of a hole in the ground, some fun jazz and classical music, an incomprehensible woman, and a supernatural sheep dream makes it a delight when, as expected, those things occur. He says that his first novels were not up to his present standards, and although I agree, I recommend reading those rat and pinball things. The are the key to everything he wrote after.

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!

Not sure if I could pick a favorite. I like Blade Runner and the sequel a lot, as well as some silly stuff like the Princess Bride.

I've always been a sucker for a sweeping adventure like The Great Race (1965) or Jason and the Argonauts (1963). I think my favorite movie would be Gladiator. It's a bit formulaic, but that doesn't matter to me if the formula is done well. I personally can't wait for the comic book genre to become less dominant so that we can get back to butchering ancient history and myths.

I've also been watching a lot of Japanese horror recently, and just watched the first Ring film. I can definitely see why it became a classic, but it's fame raises the question of why Pulse (2001) had less staying power, despite being in my opinion superior. Is it simply that the message of the film, how the internet can erode social relationships and mental health, hadn't yet come to pass for the general populace?
