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.

This was one of my favourite threads on the old sushichan. Post comfortable audiovisual experiences utilising the WebMatroska container format.

The audio is: Boards of Canada - roygbiv
The video is of San Francisco in 1905.

I was ripping my old Beatles CDs, and I found this lovely song on 'Revolver'. Perfectly fitting for my idea of comfiness. When I'm in the middle of a dream / stay in bed / float upstream…

Basically this. I want a woman to marry who I can spend the rest of my life with, someone I can trust, a real human being like me, children to share my love with, and a piece of land so the children will not have to be moved from house to house chaotically like so many children have to endure these days. I just want what anyone else in my family wanted and had in the past.

However, so far I have found this goal incredibly difficult to accomplish, since I am now only one step closer than I was at age 18. Sometimes I feel as if I have been cheated by the times I was born into, but I will not let that stop me.

Oh I forgot to add. When I do finally buy land, I want to form a sort of colony of people I like. I would invite NEETs to live there too if they would be willing to put in a bit of labor. I was a NEET at one time so I know how it goes.

The saying says that it takes a village to raise a child, and I would like my children to literally have a village and be away from the poorly managed toxic public schools I was forced to be raised in, so that when they grow up, they will be spared from the mental issues I have had to live with.

This has been a dream of mine for many years.

I've found that sitting around and doing nothing tends to make me start remembering things I've done over which I feel remorseful or that stress me out. I don't think humans in general handle idleness very well–we're not built for it, since our ancestors for thousands of years were always on the move and busy with one thing or another. With that in mind, my suggestion to you would be to start doing basically anything; it can be as simple as watching an anime or reading a book, as long as you're directing your mental energy at something other than reflecting on your regrets.

>>1674
>Your life is the exact life that I want to live but never will
Don't be so sure, sushi roll. Around this time last year, I was suffering from extreme anxiety because I'd been unemployed for the greater part of a year after graduating. Back then, I'd started feeling resigned that I'd be stuck at some low-end job making pitifully small loan payments for decades, if I could even get a job at all. It'd gotten so bad that I was honestly very surprised when I got a job offer.

In other words, keep moving forward. No matter what your circumstances are, you'll never reach a point where there are no opportunities to improve your situation as long as you don't give up. Even if you have to tread water for a while, or have to force yourself some, most, or all of the time for a while to keep at it, that's OK. After all, you don't have to pretend to like or be happy about the effort it takes to get there–you simply have to get there.

Also, >>1675 and >>1676 made some excellent points. I've got a host of problems of my own, not least of which is how distasteful my current job is. For that matter, while having a source of income is reassuring in a strictly material sense, the bulk of my feelings of contentment with my life comes from improving myself and learning to accept who and what I am, and spending my free time doing things I love like drawing and writing.

i hate those kind of questions. i have thought about not only my own goals but how i stand in relation to humanity, to the universe, how it all makes sense, why i feel sad about those things, whether it really matters at all and all those basic existential questions that everyone that is not borderline retarded experiences at some point or another. whether those feelings remain with you for a longer time or whether it's more like depressing bursts of thoughts that keep you up at night, you've all been there.

i hate to talk about those questions because i've thought about them ten thousand times and it never comes to a conclusion. and to conclude that it isn't worth thinking and talking about those questions is downright false.

sometimes i'm considering writing all my thoughts about life and all that shit down, just to get it all out - black on white. but would it benefit me? i know in this very instant that the only thing that would change is that i will have my thoughts in one place. but would they stop haunting me? i don't think so

when i think about those questions there's always a billion ways to think about them and a billion opinions and concepts and ways to try to conclude, and in each and every single one of those billion possibilities there is a billion more lurking. for some people that might seem like an infinite philosophical playground but for me it stopped being that years ago, i've come to realize that it it more like The Punishment of Sisyphus.

i often wish to numb myself from these thoughts but at the same time i know that after the numbness goes away, after i am not busy with satisfying my basic needs to survive, after i have come to rest and am not occupied with anything, those thoughts will come to haunt me again. this has always been that way for me and this duality is what is tearing me apart when i'm alone and thinking.

but who am i kidding, everyone knows this shit.

tl;dr: it's a tough question

I lately really need a way to express my self by creating something, because only playing vidya isnt that what it once used to be for me.
The problem is that im usually not really good in this stuff. (I cant draw, Im getting tired of programming really quickly, Im not creative enough to make music, writing storys doesnt satisfy me, …)

Does anyone of you guys also have the same problem? And if not: What are you doing to not get this feeling?

Not sure if it belonged in the art thread or not.

Anyway I tried my hand at a few animated gifs from anime movies. The program I used was call instagiffer.

It was free but seems very inefficient and is quite basic. Although it did have some good features such as a cinemagraph function.
While it did work the gifs were extremely large in data size so I had to reduce the resolution in gimp.

One thing I noticed is that the source videos, despite being 25fps standard were only animated in perhaps half that. Or at least the scenes i was interested in. So there would be two or three identical frames in sequence.

This I think is what add to the file size but does nothing to improve quality.

Does anyone else make these, what is a good program?
Something that would let you pick and place frames and specify delays and such things would be ideal. As well as optimizing the output gif.

Hmm, you can make gifs with Photoshop, and it does have the option to delay certain frames for a given time. You can also play around with the layers, and to save on file size, do something like have a single layer as the background and then put the transparent moving parts above it.

I don't really know anything detailed about gif making myself, but you'll find a ton of aesthetic blogs on tumblr making really nice looking anime gifs, so you might find some better tips there.

The first user that comes to mind is dezaki (dezaki.tumblr.com), since their gifs look super high quality, so send them an ask or something?

 No.1745

Anime is normally drawn at 15 fps, to save time and effort. the reason you cant just reduce the framrate of the video is because background pans are at 25 fps lots of times (good example is first fight scene in cowboy bebop). Photoshop is good for gifs, idk if there's ever been a killer app for gif creation.

In that case I would say foremost look into the positioning of facial features, mk 3 mouth is way too far left and it's a little uncanney.
Additionally try to slope your shoulders and upper torso a bit, there's lots of different variation in that area but either way having it straight is a no go, if not for anatomical reasons then simply because it's very masculine and these are cute girls.

Other than that, the only other issue I can see is that the hair is quite extended at the front but very flat on the back. Generally you want the back of the head extended out a decent amount. Though that's not really a big problem.

Gotta say I'm surprised how well you did the more subtle things like jawline and hair form. Those are usually the harder aspects for most people.

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.

OP here. Last night I was this macho badass guy who was on a night mission to extract this teenage girl from some cartel dudes hanging out in the mountains. We were being all stealthy and crawling along the ground in camoflauge until we got to this big clearing with some teenage girls chatting.
Suddenly the girl I was with wanted to chat with the other girls so she tries to get up and talk to them. I tried to reason with her that talking to them would give away our position, but she went over to talk to them anyway.

I had a dream I was standing naked in a void with a light fixated above me. Out in front of me materialized a short naked woman about 5'3 who had brown skin, long straight black hair that reached her hips and was coved with tribal tattoos. She approached me and then placed her arms around me, hugging me tightly, pressuring her face in my chest. Her embrace felt cold, but I return her hug with mine to warm her up. She then spoke "I will always be here, I'll never leave you." I'm not sure if she was anyone I knew, but that dream stood out more then any dream I've had.

I had a couple of very vivid dreams a couple of nights ago.


In the first dream, I was standing outside. It was very dark, as though the air was filled with some sort of tangible darkness rather than just because it was nighttime. I was standing on a concrete path halfway up a hill and reading what looked like a chat log or imageboard posts written in the dirt next to it. I don't recall what exactly was written, but I looked behind me after hearing something. There was a faceless girl with dirty clothes and tangled, frizzled hair slowly walking up the path toward me.

I turned and ran up the hill to this small square building at one end of the path. As I entered it, I passed one of my older coworkers who was leaving; he didn't seem to noticed the faceless girl, nor did she pay any attention to him. Nevertheless, I locked the glass door and backed away. The girl stopped in front of the door and stared at me with her not-face, and after a second or two I was jolted awake by terror.


In the second dream, I was walking to "work"–though the building I arrived at wasn't my actual workplace and the people there weren't my actual coworkers, this was where I worked in the dream. Inside, there was a large reception area with expensive-looking polished wooden flooring and paneling. A number of old white people were seated at desks and tables in this first room; somehow, I knew that that day at work was significant because there were a bunch of "important" people visiting, and I likewise knew that the aforementioned old white people were these "important" folks. I think I was supposed to dress up nice, but I'd come in wearing jeans and a T-shirt as always, and I didn't bother to greet the VIPs as I passed them. As I headed toward my desk, I overheard one of my high school teachers (who apparently worked there) grumbling to another regular employee that us kissing up to and trying to impress these VIPs was a joke, and that it didn't reflect what the company was actually like or how we actually operated.

Rather than having an office/desk to myself, I only had a computer workstation in the middle of a long table of identical workstations. For some reason, all of the screens (even the ones manned by dream coworkers) were showing clips from My Little Pony. I tried to go to my workstation, only to find that someone else was sitting at my usual computer. I tried to tell them that that was my spot, but they and thPost too long.

Your second dream sounds rather confusing, but I guess it's always like that in dreams right?

In fact, I'm always surprised at how dreams make perfect sense while your dreaming yet after you've woken up it becomes completely random and strange. Maybe in our dreams, our minds are somehow liberated from the shackles of normality and logic, and since dream worlds exist only in our minds they follow the rules of the mind instead of physics.

>>1697
Maybe your subconscious is trying to tell you that you're lonely. Or it could be your longing for companionship being projected as a dream.
