Do sushi have their favourite magazines?
I thought that reading them may be good way to "deboor*" myself.
So what are you reading? Do you have a ritual that accompanies the act?
Maybe you found something extremely interesting in a publication and
want to share?

*deboor - no idea if this makes sense in english, but it is literal
translation of my country's saying "when a boor tastes some culture".

Lapham's Quarterly. It's a great way to get a wide survey of a lot of different writings that you'd normally have a very hard time finding in print. I used to read Cabinet, but it's not in print anymore, thinking about buying back issues and reading them as a supplement.

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.

The Martian by andy weir. I figured it would be kinda known because of the movie. I read it when it was a web serial, so seeing it get made into a movie was a really cool experience.
Also while I'm here I've got to recommend the sci fi compendium "the ascent of wonder" I'm only about a third of the way in but I've enjoyed every story so far.

Finished A Fire upon the Deep, and got partway through the sequel.
An overall good book, though I enjoyed it more for it's sci-fi world building than the political intrigue aspects. It takes place in a galaxy where fundamental physics change as you further from the core, allowing ftl travel and more complex technology.

Also tried the sequel a deepness in the sky, but it spent much more time on the politics than the original and I didn't make it to the end

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.

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 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.

There's also an offshoot called "The Disappearance of Nagato Yuki-chan". I've never seen it, and it's been so long since I've seen Haruhi. It was one of my first animes.

>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.

Hi sushi rolls. I got thinking about Katawa Shoujo recently - say what you will about the game (personally I'm very fond of it) but I think it's really impressive that a group from 4chan came together to make something like it. It got me wondering - what would Sushichan make? Would it be a visual novel, or maybe an OVA of sorts? Whatever it would be, I imagine it would be something you could fit into the iyashikei genre. I'm not like outright suggesting we start something, I don't know enough about how many people browse this site or how many creative types we have. I just wonder if anyone else has had the thought.

A VN would be easier than an OVA for sure.
The key part is organization though. Katawa Shoujo did not get serious until a small group of people moved off 4chan and made their own forums to actually work on it.
