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.

I get the impression that people here are nostalgic for the "old" internet, whatever that may be. Without the thread devolving into "old good, new bad" and complaining about tiktok/twitter/ect, what are some nice memories of yours from the early days of the internet. Hell, what are some bad memories you have?

Not many people on imageboards admit they like (or liked) reddit. And honestly? I kind of liked it, too. The smaller subreddits are the best. You start to remember people's names, inside jokes and unsaid rules. This is just my opinion, but I think people don't want to admit most forums/social media sites are very similar to one another, the good and the bad. Large sites like those specialize in mostly the bad, though. I wouldn't limit the "crabs in a bucket" mentality to people like that 40 year old guy or those deviantart people. It's everywhere. Mentally stable and emotionally mature people just aren't the type to post on the internet for hours everyday. And if that kind of behaviour is off putting and you want to avoid it, I think that's a good sign.

i really liked the old internet. It seemed better to me because it was less corporate and more on creativity than vanity like the modern social media encourages now.

 No.12746

People say the modern net is too vain, but is it? IMO it's actually the opposite; people fade into the background too much these days.

For example, take the decline of personal sites. In the 90s and early 2000s, you made your own site and hosted it on something like geocities or anglefire. Since you were building it from the ground up, it was 100% yours and you could do whatever you wanted with it.

By the mid-2000s, most people used blogging services like livejournal and blogspot. They were a bit more restrictive in terms of design since the baseline functionality had already been decided for you, and they had more emphasis on user to user interaction, but the things hosted on them could still effectively be considered their own sites.

In the late 2000s and early 2010s, people were on tumblr. Tumblr still gave a ton of customization; moreso than even some of the blogging services that inspired it. But it was clear that the focus wasn't really on the individual user anymore. It made a big deal out of sharing and responding to other people's content, and there were lots of users who did nothing but that. It was less about you and more about your place in the culture surrounding you.

Fast forward to today, and everyone's on twitter, which is like tumblr but even more limited. There's next to no customization, and you're restricted to 256 characters per post. Twitter accounts are completely interchangeable, and their content is highly ephemeral.

Individual users aren't important anymore, which sucks because that's what it used to be all about.

Outside of imageboards, I was a regular on the Myspace religion and philosophy subforum from 2005 to 2008. The 'R&P' was a very fun place. You could have serious, technical philosophical discussions on the philosophy board where there were a lot of philosophy students, then go troll people and start huge flamewars on the more chaotic religion board. The forum had several high-profile trolls, who usually had multiple alts and who would spam or exploit Myspace's code to hijack and kill threads. One of these guys even made a wiki, which is the only thing left of the R&P except for distant memories:
https://myspace.fandom.com/wiki/Religion_and_Philosophy
I don't remember half of the stuff in the wiki, except for the anti-wall of text copy pasta we'd throw at people who wrote too much. It's a bittersweet memory for me because I met my best and only online friend for over a decade through the R&P but she hasn't answered my emails in three years.

On a related note, younger people will never understand just how dominant these 'atheism vs. religion' flamewars were on the internet and I honestly miss them, even though I'd never join in them now. The discourse back then was completely different compared to today. You had people on both sides carefully cataloguing and analysing claims made by the other side, and it was very important to explain logic and methodology to people. The end result was that if you took everything with a pillar of salt (pardon the Biblical pun), you could learn a lot. There was also a sense of distance. The subject was never too serious that you couldn't have a bit of fun and mess around with people, or just walk away from the computer, and I had plenty of perfectly friendly interactions with 'the other side'. In the early 2010s, this discourse was completely displaced by a new set of concerns that are always presented in the most stark, apocalyptic terms imaginable, and that careful cataloguing is practically non-existent.

I barely buy anything that is not food, but recently I bought Burzum t-shirt - first piece of clothing in like 4 years. Mind you, I am not homeless or dirty - I just treat my stuff well and my style is eternally good.
Anyway, felt nice when I wore it, but quickly I realised that consumerism has started to corrupt me.
I tamed it, I had to stop buying pencils, rubbers, stuff for work, but it was all for my mental wellbeing. I also threw away my desk, couch and all chairs. I could gladly say that unlike filthy casuals 'things' have no impact on me.
Everything was good, 'till yesterday. I got a present.

I don't really have a problem with spending money when it's abundant, but i remember sometimes during college when my family was being harsh about money so I would mostly intermitently fast and eat mostly noodles. I'd gain weight again when travelled back home so I had stored fat to lose and supplement with vitamin pills and omega 3 pills lol. In the end I used most of this money on travels to see webfriends.
Also, for months i could only take cold showers, but it was because my roommate was supposed to buy the shower and the asshole would knock the neighbors house to take hot bath there instead, e v e r y morning. It became quite a fight with time. Honestly fuck that guy, terrible and lazy swindler.

Didn't see any movie thread around so I'll make this one the one. Have you watched anything interesting sushi?
I just finished watching Underworld, I actually started it many months ago but due to watching it on TV with half an hour long announcements decided to drop it, only to pic it back up now. I'm surprised that this movie is as complex as it is since I thought it would be just a cheap action flick, there are a lot of moments that felt very satisfactory only due to implications from characters and their previous actions. The actress was also very pretty and the action sequences were decent, but I doubt the sequels are as good as the original despite having an obvious cliffhanger ending and leaving a lot of stuff in the air (what happens to the lycan covenant and Michael? Does Selene actually get to be with the vampires again or does this relationship exile her from it).
In the end, I liked this a lot. Post whatever movies you have watched.

I watched The Sweatbox. It was never released officially but it's very easy to find online.
When Sting was approached to write music for The Emperor's New Groove, he agreed on the condition that his wife would be allowed to make a documentary about the development process, which became The Sweatbox. It's a very interesting documentary that showcases the enormous problems they had making this film, which essentially had to be completely rewritten pretty late in its development. The documentary was mostly focused on problems with the script and Sting writing music, but the highlight for me was the interviews with the artists and animators, especially everything with Andreas Deja, who designed Yzma.
I'm not entirely sure why Disney didn't allow the documentary to be released. There's a lot of talk about the documentary being "banned" and "the film Disney doesn't want you to see", but it honestly wasn't that bad.

Watched butt boy a movie about a detective hunting down a man who can shove anything up his butt including humans! It's a basic detective story, bellow average if you count a few awkward lines. The non verbal acting was pretty great, whose only saving grace is "huh a detective movie about butts. Thats, so weird I have to watch it". Movie ends kind of rushed and has no theme tying it together too. Direction has a few good shots, but overall has that 'indie film' look to it.
Worst part of the movie is it isn't dedicated to anything. The surrealism of having a butt as the villain is just clickbait, so isn't thought through, in fact the butt thing was just another attempt to be edgy. It could have been about a binge eater and the story wouldn't have changed, and the worlds reaction to it, is it funny? Is it dead serous, so it's funny, etc, is never gone into. The movie just drags along. A shame because stuff like Carlton Mellick and bizarro, something I hoped this movie would be, has an audience and they would love it if butt boy went full on bizarro.
The comments getting mad how such "a bad weird film" could get made ignoring thats the exact reaction the director wanted are funnier than the movie.

The Flying Luna Clipper is the strangest movies I've ever seen. It's for the most part made of pixel art that looks incredible, especially considering it was made in the 80s. The structure of the film is bizarre but I really don't want to spoil any of it. The whole movie is on youtube and it's less than an hour long. I highly recommend it.

Hey sushis, how the hell do I get off the computer?

I spend practically all day browsing various boards and forums and doing nothing of value. I have a couple non-computer-based hobbies but barely any motivation. I've tried to make my computer time more productive (studying languages, programming, even just watching stuff or playing games) but I can never stick with it because to be honestly I hate the computer and everything to do with it.

I'm at the point where you could call me internet addicted, but it's mostly because I feel like I have nothing else to do. I could stop using the computer, but I have no idea how I'd fill my time. I guess I'd stare at the wall? My social life isn't too vibrant either and that doesn't help.

Has anyone else been here / does anyone have some ideas?

Do any of you enjoy going out/socializing?

Life was pretty much just online friends (gaming) through high school, did a 180 and partied a bunch in college, had a group I hung around with…and now for years it's just been my girlfriend and I. Didn't keep in touch with college people, never pursued friendships outside of work. I still talk to and see a couple of friends from childhood every so often but that's it. I don't even know if I mind very much, but it's something I ponder sometimes.

Not particularly. I cut ties with my final set of irl friends almost exactly ten years ago, come to think of it. I'm too reserved and private as a person to ever make a genuine connection with another person, plus I won't speak in groups at all just because I find it stressful and get confused.
I did actually play in an igo club for about a year before the pandemic, though. I would just play one game and then go home, though, and I never really spoke to anyone outside of teaching/reviewing. In retrospect, I'm not even sure why I went. I decided that I'd only think about returning after reaching shodan ranking, but that's a pretty distant goal for me.

I like socializing in the abstract but I have trouble finding people I actually want to socialize with. I have friends I made in my college anime club or on imageboards over the years and it's easy and fun to casually chat with them about the stuff I care about, and we're able to understand where the other person is coming from on serious topics as well. But that's all online and meanwhile if I try to go to a "make new friends meetup" at a bar or something I don't feel like I have any common interests to discuss and our culture and values feel so disparate that it's impossible to progress beyond small talk to any real friendship, and spending time with them just feels like a chore where I'm constantly grasping for things to keep the conversation going.

I remember it because it lead to one of the weirdest wikipedia sources ever.
I feel so-so on the disease its self because it feels like something someone just made up. All previous studies on 'sleep procrastination' relate to people not sleeping due to self control issues and not regaining freedom. Very little literature, or even online mention!, existed before this tweet and yet now people are treating it like a real 'medical' thing. Two small details is that it might be a culturally bound syndrome, like Taijin Kyofusho or Dhat Syndrome, because Chinese work expectations are nothing like western ones and it gives a few mediclization vibes were it says "this is your problem we can fix by fixing you and not by fixing the culture that makes you act like this". These are all nitpicks though
I relate to it, but more midday. I lived with my parents during college, so they maintained strong control over my schedule except mid-day when they were busy. In order to exert control sometimes I would skip meals, so I could lie to them and say I ate. I did this for no reason other than to control myself outside there bounds.
I do believe disordered eating has been linked to control issues before.
