Last post:

I guess I wasn't really going anywhere with that story. It's not like a novel that has a conclusion or whatever. It was just a bunch of nerdy/geeky people who decided to live together and they had some bumps along the way. I heard that the couple live somewhere else now, and I've moved far away, and I never lived in that shared housing situation to begin with (I think they called it the "batcave" or something at some point, I vaguely remember because of the wifi name and password). I've had a lot of roommates after moving out of my parents' house, but they had next to nothing in common with these people. I'd take boring but high-functioning roommates over these kinds of people any day of the week. Roommates don't have to be your friends, they just have to be good roommates. Friendship includes boundaries, like not living with them, and those boundaries are part of why you can tolerate your friends.

To people who haven't experienced that stuff, it might seem cool. But I thought it was pretty grating. Lots of people smoking weed and playing N64 Mario Kart together? Sounds cool, right? But it also meant the house would reek of weed, I'd get hotboxed and feel anxious from being too high, etc. I'd also constantly worry about police when I was hanging out with these people, because of all the drugs and whatnot. I also didn't like the weird "we're nerds so we're clearly smart and better than other people" attitude that often plagues these kinds of people.

But the point I'm trying to make is that I don't think nerdy or introverted people are good for each other. People who spend too much time getting drunk and high and spending a lot of time on their computer… these kinds of people are better off interacting with more extroverted people. Your friends and roommates shouldn't just be a carbon copy of you. Find people who are different. That being said, these people were, on the whole, more outgoing and social than the people OP described, but it was still pretty dysfunctional.


Oh yeah, and one last thing (if it wasn't obvious from the other posts): pretty much all of these people were poor. Most didn't have degrees, or I know one person there had a degree from community college, but they still worked at a restaurant. Lots of shitty/dead-end/low pay jobs.

I think that might have driven these people to get more into their hobbies: when you're broke, you don't want to think about college, promotions, professional networking, and career stuff. You just want to finish your shift and then do something fun, like escapist stuff such as getting high or playing a game to forget about your troubles and situation.

I used to be more into escapist stuff like anime and video games and weed, but I've kind of forced myself to be less into it now. The people who put all their free time into just enjoying themselves don't really have any upward mobility. I'm concentrating on my education and career goals now, but I bet a lot of these people are still poor and have no opportunities for career advancements.



I thought of that when the topic came up. Fredrik knudsen did a good video on that for down the rabbit hole if anyone is into that stuff.


I was actually thinking of starting a nerd house of some sorts sometime early next year. Not nerd in the sense of vidya, anime, gaming etc, but really smart people, and creators. I figure we'll be able to come up with all kinds of cool projects, and ideas living together. And it'll force me to be less withdrawn, as it tends to happen whenever things get stagnant. I'm a bit nervous about the idea of having roommates in my first house but at least I'll be bringing in rent money.

the NPC meme is just a millennial/zoomer rebranding of solipsism, also it shows a lack of empathy

it's easier to call someone an NPC than it is to try and understand that they have a unique perspective and their own life experiences and that they're just as valid of a person as you are

In my years of chan browsing Ive never gone out of my way to bump a 1 month old thread


I've bumped year old threads before here and elsewhere. It often gets everyone talking again. I really like it.


File: 1544866634126.jpg (61.62 KB, 405x525, angryry.jpg)

Besides the insulting nature of this meme and its abundant use in dick measure contests about the hardheadedness of politically opposing groups, the core message, being a call for a more critical stance with public opinion, is not a bad thing.

I wonder who came up with that. The degradation of users to inanimate things, while implicating oneself to be the superior existence and the only one or one of the few to have figured out the truth, gives a strong impression of psychopathic megalomania or schizophrenic delusions. In any way stuff like this is easily exploitable, defiles discussions and might lead to free speech killing itself and this is not okay!


Altchans really don't care about that though. If it's on the catalogue, it's fair game, right?


To be fair, people in the current internet environment have been using memes and humor as a shied to hide their/shelter their genuinely felt views. How many fetishes have people snuck in to their posts under the guise of "funny jokes"?

There is a more obvious and related example to this topic, but I'll hold off so I don't invoke Godwin's Law on myself.

Whenever I listen to this song, I'm reminded of sushichan. The atmosphere fits perfectly with this board. It's slow-paced, like a stroll in spring, with bitter-sweet singing and a playful yet modest instrumentation.

Thanks again for sharing this gem!

I finally got a good job so I'm going to get nice things for my family, they deserve it. I'm hoping I'll be able to have some tranquillity and maybe get a bit further into persona 5.

>for me its basically a tradition at this point.
It is for an awful lot of people that ever went on /a/ for more than a couple years.


I'm in the same boat lol

A friend from abroad is coming over, so I'll be catching up with her for a bit. Shortly after that is my birthday, then two Christmas dinners with family and friends.

I'll need a time out after all that socializing, so I'll probably watch the fireworks alone from my comfy view while sipping champagne and listening to shoegaze, Lost in Translation style.


I haven't had some good tea for months and months, gonna put in an order for some and treat myself as an early christmas auto-gift. Maybe get some reading done when it has arrived. Rewatch Tokyo Godfathers.
I haven't even heard about that one before, will have to check out.


I started a new job during this month and in my country, you do not get vacation if you have worked less than one month so I will be working over christmas.
At least I have an excuse to not go to any family gatherings.

This thread isn't meant to be all about me, even if my writing makes it seem like it, it can be anything to do with friends.

Do you have any online friends sushi? How did you get them? What do you like to do with them?

I have a problem making online friends, because all the sites I go on are sushi rollymous. I have tried a few forums, but I can never commit to them, and they're usually pretty bad anyway. I dont have time for IRC, and I always make a big old booby of myself in live conversation. Do you think it's possible for me to make online friends, or should I stick to being by myself for the moment?

that's not how it works kid


>don't have the energy to maintain them
Same here. Out of sight, out of mind. Relationships today are incredibly demanding. Instant messaging and effortless social exchange let people expect at least weekly updates. otherwise you degrade from "close friend" to "just another acquaintance".

I wish I would care enough to prevent myself from acting like that instead of occasionally regretting and forgetting about it.

For example once I don't enjoy an online game anymore, because it becomes too tedious or difficult, I usually just stop playing regardless of contacts and clan memberships. When I'm already unproductive, it should at least be an enjoyable waste of time.


This sums up the dilemma pretty well. Plenty of friends have complained to me that they have trouble keeping in touch with everyone, especially when they also have to juggle that with irregular work schedules.

This might be why your friends haven't contacted you. I've sometimes gone for months without seeing someone because I was too scared to take initiative, only for them to apologize later that they didn't get back in touch sooner.


I've made quite a few through mutual interests, I can generally get some video games, movies, streams etc going. I'm also a part of a circle that stopped online correspondence a while ago, but not before some real life meetups were set up and ended up with some proper lasting friendships. I even helped one guy move furniture into his new apartment and he returned the favor during my own move.


I was going to write that I don't have any, but actually my oldest friend is actually an online one. We've kept in touch so long I forgot she wasn't an IRL one. We used to chat on MSN like every day for years, life slows down, just kinda rekindle maybe once twice a year and check up on eachother but it's good that way too. Met on a manga forum that shut down, funny part is I didn't even read that much manga, found the link on the back of a freebie manga chapter demo at the bookstore. Met (virtually) a lot of nice people that way.

Nowadays I don't meet new people online, forums are mostly dead and if not more toxic than before, chans are great for what they are but not for meeting people.
Doesn't that imply that you never really were a real friend either, since you aren't making effort to contact them too? Things like that go both ways.

>Billie's legs are noodles. The ends of her hair are poison needles. Her tongue is a bristly sponge, and her eyes are bags of bleach.

This doesn't evoke any emotion when I read it. Is this because the writer is bad or is it because I didn't put enough effort into feeling it?

University. Philosophy and history professors. The idea was that it would be easier for people to understand you if you used more more common words, and many students didn't seem to understand the words they used that well either.


Writing in a manner to make your work accessible isn't really what the thread is about though. It's to mess about and have fun with words isn't it?


Read "A Case for Small Words" by Richard Lederer, you might reconsider your stance.


Depends on why you write. There is a time and place for everything. It is better to be understood correctly with simple words when you're trying to argue for or against the use of road salt, if you're writing a journal, stories, or poems, playful writing is certainly welcome. You don't have to dive into the thesaurus for the longest most convoluted words to be playful tho, simple "homely" words is often just as good, or even better. Choosing longer and more foreign words might work against you.


That's what I just said.
Writing to be easily understood is very important in many places but this thread is not one of them. So to give writing advice of such a method is counter productive here.



Post your favorite MADs ITT.

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!

Tree of Life is good. The Thin Red Line is also very good.

My favourite Malick film though is Knight Of Cups, which probably says more about where I am in life than anything else.

Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter… and Spring. Quiet, contemplative, beautifully shot.

Terry Gilliams' The Adventures of Baron Munchausen. The top of the heap of nostalgia films from my childhood including but not limited to The Gods Must Be Crazy, Willow, The Princess Bride, The Goonies, and The Adventures of Milo and Otis.

Three films will do.

As a piece of cinematography, it is good. The story is nothing amazing. Cruise is bearable, Kidman is unbearable. Barry Lyndon is definitely underrated.

I used to really love 2001 but the "big picture" storyline has lost it charm on me over the years, contrast this with the very personal Knight Of Cups. I still own a segment of Kubrick's personal cut of 2001 that came with the first print run of The Stanley Kubrick Archives.


I also watched it without having any idea about the plot, it really blew my mind.


>Three films will do.
or not. forgot Jim Jarmuschs' Broken Flowers


File: 1544209378681.jpg (194.17 KB, 1000x620, hard-to-be-a-god-2013-004-….jpg)

The last Movie I watched was Hard to be a god.
It wasn't a very pleasant expirence but it sure was very unique and interesting.
If you are searching for something unusual or have a scat fetish I would definitely recommend it.
If you want to have a comfy time you should stay away from this movie.


Electric Dragon 80,000v is a really great japanese indie film with a really great soundtrack. Would recomend to fans of tetsuo the iron man, noise guitar music or japanese pro wresting anouncers



Whiny teen music that makes you remember the times when you cared about things you don't care about anymore.

I used to like crystal cafe but I'm trans and, even though I personally would never make a point of mentioning it, whenever other transgirls would mention it (which is admittedly stupid on a girls only site) and get shat on or banned it started to make me feel unwelcome.
It's a shame because there's a lot of good conversation there.


>I personally would never make a point of mentioning it
[on that site]


Wizardchan went down in 2014, it was replaced by Wizchan. Its basically a den for incels now, I can't use it now.

Goodbye MagicChan, thanks for the fun times.


You probably already know this but 8ch.net/tower/ is the replacement for MagicChan and there's also lizchan.org which carries the same vibe


/tower/ is great but I don't really like lizchan. It's too like /r9k/ for me personally.

Do you have a neat web community or chat group you'd like to invite people to? Maybe want to drop your messaging handle and strike up some conversations? Do it here.

Chat/community/personal ads are no longer allowed on the rest of the site, except maybe on /hell/.

Important Note: This doesn't mean that you can't talk about communities or chat groups. You could, for example, have a thread where you ask people about web communities they visit. You just can't open your thread with an advertisement.

One post per service please! Duplicate ads may be deleted. This especially includes discord links. To make a permanent discord link, click on instant invite, go to advanced settings, and change the expire time to never. Dead links suck. If your discord link expires, your post will be deleted and you may receive a short warning ban.

Let's tell each other about strangers doing things that made you feel comfy.

Recently I went to the laundry room to clean some clothes. I like to hang around in the laundry room and play video games and keep an eye on my clothes because I don't trust people not to take them out of the machine.
Sitting at the table was a man wearing a US Marines (or some other military) cap, I guess he was a veteran but I didn't ask. He had a creaky old laptop on the table and was playing a Christmas themed hidden objects game.

Pic unrelated.

That reminds me I gotta download Jazz Jackrabbit Holiday Hare for my yearly playthrough.


I'm sorting out my drives right now actually, I always find that comfy. Finding old files you've forgotten about, rechecking everything you found worthwile enough to save. Goal is to only have the bare essentials left and everything important made sure it's backed up before the new years.
Looking forwards to that feel of a cleaned out system without duplicate folders and all that.
Maybe he was a LGR fan, his last vid was one something like that.


>strangers doing things that made you feel comfy


Seeing that video is actually what reminded me of it happening and prompted me to post this thread ha, but no it was a couple of weeks ago.
