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.

When I think "regular social life" I think of something much more far-reaching than what I have, but by comparison to others I guess I might fit the definition. I have five extremely close friends that I have a great relationship with. With them I feel like I can be myself, it's very comfy. When I'm not around them though I'm extremely introverted, and other people that I interact with never go much further than being mere acquaintances to me.

I hung out with a small group of people for the first time in almost 7 years. It was strange to say the least. They've made the offer for me to come hang out again which, while it wasn't anything to write home about, I think I will just to start up with some form of social interaction again. Thankfully it's just a group of people sitting around watching some anime and making small talk.

It was ok. Although I was really on edge being in a social situation again after so long so that probably had an impact on how I perceived everything. I'm going again tonight and am nowhere near as nervous as last week so I hope I can enjoy it more this time.

Moshi moshi. I hope the Sushigirl staff is still as generous with this as with last year's invitation campaign. This is my favorite image board.

You are invited to watch Fat Stupid Garbage - Japanophobia, a 24-hour online broadcast of classic anime, music videos, and vintage commercials from the Japanese Bubble Economy Era.

耶 - Are there any real commercials like on the rest of the internet? No, absolutely not. Never. FSG is a free broadcasting project and will remain so indefinitely.

耶 - What kind of anime is aired? As a rule of thumb, anything from the year 2000 or older with very occasional exceptions, both subtitled and dubbed. You can make requests in this thread, but it may take several weeks to add said requests to the broadcast. No anime is too obscure.

耶 - How will it air? Japanophobia is designed to emulate cable television formats of the 20th century once enjoyed by former television addicts like yours truly. Each series will air two episodes each, with a movie or OVA of the day for 12 hours of content, which will then loop, making a total of about 24 hours.

耶 - How is the IRC community? Not so comfy sometimes, but we try. When you see Wlwowlw(WooLooWoo) remember to type ":doge". Praising Kabosu and Lum-san will bring good luck.

耶 - What time will it air? 7AM Saturday to 7AM Sunday, every weekend. Same Fat Stupid time, same Fat Stupid place.

hey, hope you figure out a solution to your torrent problem, I've enjoyed the couple streams i've dropped in on. I was wondering in the same vein as >>2324 about how you manage to stream all these separate video files without dropping the stream.

 No.2368

>>2367
Well, probably to everyone's surprise, Japanophobia has always run using VLC and OBS. There were many countless adjustments made in order to do this, so many that I could not list them all. It was done using tedious and very time-consuming tests.

Perhaps the greatest factor is how small the video files are. Since most of the anime is from before the 2000s, the resolution for video files tends to be between 1024 X 768 down to 640 x 480. This has the benefit of both saving hard drive disk and not placing too much strain on VLC. OBS also runs more quickly at lower resolutions.

For more stability and simplicity, the streaming computer uses dual monitors, with OBS set to capture one so that VLC can run in full screen. This removed all the issues with trying to designate screen areas in OBS. The captured monitor is only set to a resolution of 800 X 600 to match the recording resolution in OBS. I found that this made the stream run more smoothly.

File types are very important. VLC seems to be okay with AVI, MP4, FLV, and MKV on the lower resolutions. Blu-Ray quality resolution MKV files tend to take a while to load and may destabilize VLC. I tend to avoid these anyway because the files consume too much storage space.

OGM files are the worst. VLC can only run these at a very limited frame rate. A lot of older anime is only available in OGM. For the rare occasion that anime is only available in this format, I use a torrent copy of WinX HD Video Converter Deluxe to convert OGM to AVI. This is also a useful program for dealing with subtitles and audio tracks.

So far these are the only methods I have found to work for me. Perhaps someone out there has simpler solutions, but I have not met that person yet.

If it's summertime, I love to open the windows and feel the wind and listen to the thunders and the rain while playing a video game. If it's cold, I put on my coat and take a walk around, maybe stop by a bar to drink a coffee and listen to music and casually browsing the web for a while. Rain is the perfect weather for comfy spacing out.

Do you Sushi Rolls have any hobbies outside of /silicon/ stuff? What projects are you working on? How did you get into the hobby and why do you enjoy it?

I'm personally into cosplay. Just finished making Corvo's mask and am working on finishing up the rest of the costume in time for a convention in September. I like cosplay because it's completely different from the coding & analysis I do during my day job, and I like working with my hands. Good cosplay involves sculpting, sewing, crafting, fitness, photography, and elements from many other different hobbies. Plus, the conventions themselves are really fun.

Electric kits aren't all that great. It doesn't feel or sound anything like acoustic drums. You could always try a beginner child set and only pick up a snare, bass, mounted tom, hi-hat and one cymbal. It would be reasonably compact; in comparison to a 'regular' kit.

Why do i feel this sense of impending doom? i think ive gotten things figured out and i can clearly see what i need to do to live a good life, but i feel with every step i take, with every month that passes, with every changing season, im only awaiting a brutal revaluation bound to happen in my lifes time. Like a day of judgement, a day that breaks all logic and bends reality. the answer to all the problems that life has.

I feel like im going to meet god. Like we are going to meet god, and transcend into a higher being.

Share and archive your dreams here sushis. I'll start.

I dreamed I was an eldritch monster who took peoples eyes. A tar-like tentecle shot out from my palms and took the eyes straight out of their sockets. For some reason it would only take one at a time, so you had to do it twice to completely remove both of them.

I took the eyes of some middle aged man who was being horrible to his daughter.

Last night I had a spooky dream. It was not a nightmare, and I kind of liked the … well you'll see what it is.
I was in a crowded place, some kind of event or something, out in the open, a wide place.
There was a big thing, about 30 ft tall, and it was covered with cloth, seemingly several layers, to keep all light from touching it. At the bottom there was an opening through which people would walk in.
I was told that it was a sort of shrine where people would worship a god that represented a corpse, and that was the reason that it had to be in complete darkness (or at least, untouched by sunlight). It was not a cult like that of Santa Muerte in Mexico and other parts of south america. Santa Muerte delivers death (I think), this was a representation of that very state of being dead, or being a corpse. Spooky.
Pic semi related. This resembles a buddha, though the one in my dream wasn't anything remotely related with enlightenment or any higher state, but something wicked.

I dreamed I was with a girl at a party and I knew she was going to break up with me but when we went into a corner to discuss it I saw another guy yelling at and hitting his girlfriend so I walked over to stop him and then I tried to tackle him but he caught me and threw me off balance (I knew it was a bad idea the whole time but I felt like I had to do something) then suddenly some old guy picked him up and tossed him aside before he could beat me up and it felt like everything was going to be alright because at least I tired, even though I knew I wouldn't be able to solve it all on my own. I was laying on the floor and my glasses had fallen off and there was some 80s song playing, sounded like something out of the breakfast club, and it really did feel like it was all going to be OK. and then I woke up

I dreamed I was in a company of monster slaying semi-medieval warriors on a mission in some unknown desolate city.

In the dream, we were recruiting new soldiers to make up for a few losses we took, presumably during a previous battle or something. So we were lining them up in a big clearing in order to inspect them, when suddenly there was this sound, kind of like a passing jet, in the sky. At fist, nobody could recognize where the sound was coming from untill a pelican, as big as a building, appeared in the sky. Then it suddenly swooped down and started dive bombing us with it's claws.

It didn't look as big in the sky but when it got closer to the ground I could sense how big and heavy the thing was because of the big booms it made when it's claws touched the ground to grab somebody close to me. So we all scattered into the nearest building where we spent the night in because the pelican kept circling above even when we were gone.

>kinda looked like pic related but it had eagle talons instead of webbed feet
