I just watched swing girls which is from 2004. It was really good. There was a fair few cuts that were really pretty and it's really mellow and light which I love personally.
I do have a biased soft spot for early/mid 2000's stuff though. It subconsciously puts me in the mindset of my childhood or something.

Also the main character is the qt's qt I have ever seen.

I've always seen lots of love for Lily Chou Chou, but in my case it's more of a love/hate thing. I really don't like the way the exposition is done during the first 30 or so minutes of the movie, but I like the themes the movie touches upon. I always feels empty when it ends, because I would've liked to know more about the characters.

That sounds like a fun thing to do actually. Got a small one I inherited from my grandfather. It is the kind that can fold out so you can sit on it.

A compact fishing rod, pans, a knife, and a tarp, and I pretty much have all that I need for a weekend in the woods. + some extra food rations in case I can't find any fish. My sleeping bag might be compact enough to fit in it too. Even just a day trip would be nice.

I recently figured out that I absolutely love dark, Gothic stuff, be it art, TV or music.

The exact name of this peculiar genre I don't know, but when I find examples of it I lap it up. It's solemn in tone and touches frequently on death, darkness and the Unknown. The kind of thing that makes you feel alone, desperately alone. Wandering alone through a deserted field in the cold and rain towards the light, the single, lone house on the hill containing the single, lone farmer. There's something comfy in that for me.

Anyway, here are some examples/recommendations:
Over the Garden Wall is the best example in TV or cartoons. I've watched it at least three times.
This album I picked up - Stuck on a Sunday. Webm related.
This kind of art: https://art.vniz.net/en/ - including some by Zdzislaw Beksiński, which has been posted here.

Does anyone else like this macabre art? Does anyone have any recommendations?

Post things you've learnt recently!

From 'Brewer's Dictionary of Phrase and Fable':
Cornstalks. In Australia, especially in New South Wales, from colonial times a name for youths, perhaps from their being taller and more slender than their parents.

That made me laugh, especially because it reminded me of myself.

Not the original poster, but the version I've heard from my parents involves breaking the surface of the leaves up a bit by rubbing them between your fingers and then applying them to the wound along with some spit. Not sure if it boils down to the blood clotting capabilities of spit combined with the protection offered by the leaves or if there is indeed more to it.

Heh, if there were a Latin programming language, 'adit' would be the equivalent of 'goto'.

Many people (especially those who are forced to do Latin at school) claim that it is useless because it is a 'dead language'. But you are completely right that an understanding of Latin (and/or Greek) can help decode English words with a Latinate etymology. Personally, though, I would prefer if more words were Germanic in origin to ease understanding; if you do not recognise the word 'oratory', you will probably have no clue what it means unless you study Latin. 'Speechcraft', on the other hand, makes immediate, intuitive sense.

Anyway, here's a fact for the thread: the Ancient Greeks and Romans believed that there was a nerve running from the third finger after the thumb to the heart. This explains why that finger is the 'ring finger' (digitus annularis in Latin) on which we place engagement and marriage rings.

>>256
Another bit of latin in the english language that I find interesting is not too surprising, yet somewhat enlightening if I may say so.
It's the word "essence", which from the latin word, comes to mean "that which it is", with "esse" meaning "to be".
The -ence termination is not proper of latin, but english, just like we say "importance" and such words.
Of course it makes sense, for that is the meaning of essence: that which something is at the more fundamental level. Though sometimes we interpret the word much in the sense of "substance", that is, the material of which it is composed.
Now substance does have a latin root, but to the extent of my knowledge, only in the prefix sub- which as we all know means "under". Sub-stance would thus means "that which stands beneath"

Sorry for all this, I'm just an etymology freak, and quite frankly I think it's really interesting to know what the atomic elements of the words we use are and where they originate. They also give some material to use them creatively in speech.

 No.263

>>262
Your explanation of 'essence' was interesting, and led me to consider whence comes 'quintessence'/'quintessential'. I knew that the 'quint' bit must mean five, but there's a deeper explanation than that:
>The ancient Greeks said there are four elements or forms in which matter can exist–fire, air, water, and earth; the Pythagoreans added a fifth, the fifth essence–quintessence–ether, more subtle and pure than fire, and possessed of an orbicular motion, which flew upwards at creation and formed the basis of the stars. Hence the word stands for the essential principle or the most subtle extract of a body that can be procured.
from Brewer's Dictionary of Phrase and Fable.

Been watching any animation movies (japanese or otherwise) recently?
I didn't find a suitable thread so I figured I'd start one. It's strange that we don't have this thread yet anyway.
I recently watched "The boy and the beast" and "The girl who leaped through time", really good stuff. The same director of Summer Wars.

I watched Hana to Alice Satsujin Jiken.
It has some kind of weird mix of 3d and rotoscoping, not the prettiest of sights.
I really liked it though, not sure why but it was just so different from regular movies.

I watched the live action movie from like 2004 after and that was really super good. If anyone is into cinematography you should definitely watch the live action, it's quite strangely filmed.

Also saw Koe no Katachi movie that kyoani did and that was quite good. Their animation style seemed a lot more mature in it than usual. I'd say by kyonai standards the movie was maybe a bit weak but by regular industry standards it's still very good. Maybe I'm just jaded from reading the manga though.

Something I've been wanting to add to this project, though is taking time to draft out so I will do a rough edit here;

Gaj Treaty

Between the people that serve God, Gnod and the place where the garden grows - Gaj is perhaps a human form of entity; techgnod is the culmination of all decaying substances and will eventually consume life as a whole, while the treaty details that all three are in balance and exist according to one another. A fourth entity may be included once it is named.

Hey rolls, do you know any "technically" unique or really unusual animus or mangos? Unique in the way that it contains (almost) no text, or maybe consists purely of text (inb4 books), or is a webcomic with moving images and sounds.

Also works with a rare concept, do you know any? Like written in reverse chronological order or even disregarding time, or on a whole different plane of comprehension.

It's a pretty literal interpretation of what you said, but Angel's Egg has almost no dialogue while still managing to be deeply expressive. Mind Game is quite unique, as well, since it switches constantly between different art styles. If you want something really wacky, try that. Cat Soup is another great example of a story being told without dialogue, mostly through a series of metaphors and dream sequences. I've not seen all of them, but Shigeru Tamura's work probably fits into the same category as Cat Soup: Glassy Ocean, Minor Blue and A Piece of Phantasmagoria. From your Lain picture, I'm guessing you've already seen that, but make sure to check out other stuff Yoshitoshi ABe's worked on. Technolyze was already mentioned, and Haibane Renmei's got a lovely feeling to it. I've not seen any of his other stuff, but I trust my main man Y to the A B enough to know they're probably good. There's also stuff like the End of Evangelion and FLCL, but everyone and their grandmother's seen that, so it's probably not worth mentioning.

That's all I can think of off the top of my head. Will post more if i can think of any.

cat soup is that trippy one with the brother kitties right? I'd say that pretty much fits OP's request.
