can people volunteer to do sysadmin work for sushichan?


Is blatant misogyny and glorifying paedophilia still allowed or is sushi actually going to be cozy this time?

thanks for responding. Maybe you are right and I have to build that, rather than just dig for it. I shall work on that.
Also I don't compare myself to others because that only leads to misery. I just think I'm dumb.


Become a better person for a good while and then try to get your ex back, I think focusing on both of those at the same time would be bad.


I see what you mean. For now I think I can do both since I'm not studying right now and I don't really have anything to use my time on. But once I get back to studying I think it'll become hard to change myself like that.


Anyway, I invite other sushi rolls to give me advice and their opinions regarding my situation. >>1789


i am not into that kind of stuff. i just try to not think about it too often, alcohol helps

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?

I like those types of tasks too sushi roll, even though I am a creative type.
Just cleaning the room or such keeps me busy while not straining my brain too much.


I just write music. I used to draw more but I hurt my head and my motor skills are kinda lagging now so my drawings look like trash nowadays. I used to make little scroller games but my parents thought I was getting too nerdy and told me to stop, lol.


wow that sounds bad.. :<
im really sorry to hear, that your parents stop you from creating games..
also this with your head sounds really bad :[


I'm currently creating an extensive mod for a game to let my creativity flow. When I'm done with that project I'll continue with my moonrunes quest and learning to draw properly (I can mostly just edit existing pictures or redraw things, but not really draw things from scratch).


sounds interesting! for what game is the mod and is it already finished?

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?


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.


ffmpeg can do everything you want. It's a commandline tool, but if you post a video and timeframe, I can give you an example output with all the appropriate flags.

I'm new of this place (kudos, it's the comfiest place ever) and being always interested on chan history I was wondering about how sushichan (the old version, I already know why there's a new version up thanks to another thread) came to be. What made itamae open the place and exactly why it happened? I'm geniunely curious.

The thread can become a general chan origin story discussion if you want!

Thanks for the attention and have a cute boat

This is the last I have heard of itamae. If anyone knows any more, please share.

The 5th of June, 2016:

21:49 &lt;@undoall&gt; Oh my gahd
21:49 &lt;@undoall&gt; Itamae isn't dead guys!
21:49 &lt; team_malice&gt; WHAT
21:49 &lt;@Seisatsu&gt; you got him?
21:49 &lt; chibi-v2&gt; the fuggg
21:49 &lt;@Seisatsu&gt; !!!
21:50 &lt;@undoall&gt; He replied to an email
21:50 &lt;@Seisatsu&gt; well what's going on
21:50 &lt;@undoall&gt; Undoall:
21:50 &lt; hellcode&gt; WAT
21:50 &lt; chibi-v2&gt; all the deets
21:50 &lt;@undoall&gt; I am okay. I apologize to you, Seisatsu, and any other sushi who may have tried to reach me. Dunno, words fail me at the 
                 moment (actually hour, I've rewritten 3 times). Apologies are cheap consolation, though.
21:50 &lt; chibi-v2&gt; fug..
21:50 &lt;@undoall&gt; fug indeed, no details or anything
21:50 &lt; team_malice&gt; Thank god
21:50 &lt; hellcode&gt; well... a-at least he's alright


I feel like I may not have enough context to post, but here we go; I don't know what seisatsu, undoall and itamae have been going through, but the mods here have been doing a great job trying to understand and manage the sushi stand, and nobody has anything to apologize for as I see it.

Imageboards seem to be an unusual format despite their intuitive nature. Are there any other "obscure" formats or sites that I might like, if I like this one?

Have you tried out meditation or do you even meditate regularly?

I practiced Karatedo and Tai Chi Chuan for some time and want to get back into it. Sitting meditation with gentle music/noise or a candle to focus on were nice too, but I hardly can bring myself down enough to get comfortable holding still. Surprisingly, I found myself in a meditative mindset while polishing stuff or cleaning things very diligently.

A Muslim friend of mine told me, that praying tree times a day is a meditative act as well. He felt clearer, almost like another man when he did so.

What are your experiences? If you are religious, do you consider praying as a form of meditation?


>Surprisingly, I found myself in a meditative mindset while polishing stuff or cleaning things very diligently.
That's no surprise at all, you are doing the same thing, whether you polish something, perform some tai chi routine, pray 3 times a day, or sit still. You are channeling your mind into dutifully performing some task, those are activities that require you to put all your concentration without spending much thinking or rationalizing. I have a theory that people watch so much tv because it induces a sort of meditative state, which is probably necessary in human life.
I think it is closely related to the act of rituals, in having some task to focus on and narrowing your thoughts through some definite activity to keep it from wandering.
As I said, I don't think meditation is necessarily sitting still, and there are actually a lot of different methods, one of my favorites is clay modelling. Japanese buddhism is aware of this, as seen in the traditional Zen activities such as: archery, calligraphy, ikebana (flower arrangements) and the tea ceremony. Tibetan monks do throat singing, and shaolin monks do martial arts. They are all a form of meditation.
I'll go one step further, I am inclined towards Chan buddhism (chinese version of Zen). I remember two things that appealed to me about it:
The idea that "The Way" (to spiritual enlightenment) can be walked by anyone at any time, it could be on your day trade, for example if you're a carpenter, your job can be your form of meditation.
The second is related, it's an anecdote I read when someone asked something to a japanes carver and he said "The buddha is inside this block of wood, I have to be very careful not to damage the buddha".
I consider Tai Chi one of the best forms of meditation for several reasons.

To wrap up, here's a video with a related idea that I expressed here, it is about acting, but hopefully you'll find what I was trying to express: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mQgZjRf-xmY

>I have a theory that people watch so much tv because it induces a sort of meditative state, which is probably necessary in human life.

I read a paper a few months ago which might be of interest. It measured the 'sigh rate' - how often we take the deep breaths which are interspersed between our shallow breaths - of people who were reading and people who were watching TV. The sigh rate of the group of subjects watching TV was significantly lower, that is, their breathing was overall shallower because they didn't take deep breaths as often.

In the second experiment, the sigh rate was significantly lower overall while watching a videotape (mean, 13.7 sighs per hour; range, 1.8-26.0 sighs per hour) than while reading (mean, 19.3 sighs per hour; range, 7.7-30.0 sighs per hour)

Hey there sushis!

I'm here to advertise a new discord server, 24!
>What is 24?

The goal of 24 is to bring as many people with different niche interests together so they could talk to each other about all the cool stuff they do.

We have a jukebox, so you can play your favorite tunes, and bring all your artwork and cool photos with you as well!

Be calm, be cool, keep it comfy, and welcome to 24!

Well /lounge/ has no unifying topic and it's extremely good. It's all about the people in it, not how specific the topic is


no offense, but that's a terrible idea.


It's gone well so far.

Let's agree to disagree


Advertisement-only threads are no longer allowed. This thread existed before the rule so it can stay, but it won't bump anymore.

Let's talk origami. What did you make? What did you think was super awesome and wish you could make?


File: 1483198791122.jpg (20.36 KB, 440x330, origami-spike-ball-s-866c7….jpg)

Oh I used to love origami. My favorite of all was modular origami, I loved making dodecahedrons and other equally complex shapes
Pic related is my favorite, I didn't take this picture but I have one of these in my desk.
I've tried to get back to it but cutting all those little pieces of paper is a lot of busywork.


I've never done origami in my life. Probably too delicate for my shaky, unsteady hands.

But I wish I could, because there's apparently a legend that if you fold 1,000 paper cranes, a crane will visit you and bring you good luck or something.


I should probably start doing cranes again, I used to make one everytime someone handed me a flier. Of course I don't know my count but it surely was below 1000

I made this recently out of 30 sonobe units. It took a few hours.


what's the difference between origami and kirigami? i thought if you had to cut things it'd be kirigami rather than origami
