does anyone know any particularly comfy youtubers or podcasts?

i'm always looking for something comfy or interesting to listen to in my spare time, and listening to people talk helps me relax a lot.

one podcast i'm a fan of is the wisenheimers podcast which was two animators from newgrounds talking about stupid shit. it ended a while a go, but managed to be pretty funny and chill while it lasted.

i also some lets players like vinesauce, jontron era game grumps and another guy called manlybadasshero who mostly does horror game lp's, but i havent found anything as comfy as i would prefer.

the fish locker
dude has plenty of coastal foraging videos where he catches lobsters, crabs, fish, clams and usually shows how to cook them easily at the end


Femboy Fishing - it's about a femboy who fishes.
Pretty chill videos. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCqq5t2vi_G753e19j6U-Ypg


Adam Ragusea is a mainly a food youtuber who does cooking and food science/history, and i really like his videos. They tend to be pretty comfy but i think the q&a videos are the most.


>historia civilis

I'm still amazed at the lack of self-awareness of his Cicero video. He calls him the greatest roman statesman and praises his name to high heaven, but all he ever talks about Cicero doing is him being a carny who had no real influence in the course of roman politics.


A pervasive hagiography has grown around Cicero and his writings, which I think is largely because of the outsize influence they had on the Renaissance and Enlightenment, but he really was pretty important in his day. He can rightfully be called the father of Latin rhetoric, and by extension of the western rhetorical tradition as a whole, and was recognized as such during his life even by Caesar himself. It was his misfortune to have been born a Roman in the twilight of the republic.

I think because he mostly focuses on warfare and specific political events the video guy ended up glossing over a lot of that without realizing that because most of his viewers aren't classicists the name Cicero doesn't have the weight he thinks it does.

Just looked it up and I have the same birthday as Charles Sanders Peirce!! He's not exactly famous, but he was one of the fathers of formal logic, a weird science where maths and philosophy meet. I was obsessed with logic during my degree, so this is a serendipitous discovery.

Woah, sushi, that's really rough.

>I wanted to go to medical school and I've prepared whatever it takes, even facing the sexist stereotypes in my country.

First, that's really admirable! I know it doesn't help with your situation, but you should be proud of your determination to be a doctor.

>Sure, being an accountant has a good pay, but it doesn't matter if I ended up hanging myself mid-way.

Yeah, I would feel the exact same about being an accountant. The salary attached to such a job just doesn't move me like it does some people.

>My grades are really bad and it's just giving me suicidal thoughts trying to make it afloat.

What would your mum do if you failed this year of accountancy school? That's one way to force her to accept that you resent the path she is laying down for you: just stop trying and fail. If you fail so badly that you won't graduate or be able to practise as an accountant, then there's no way your mum can force you to become one.

I'm sure you have, but you also need to think about a possible compromise. Would you be happy working as an accountant for a private hospital, for example? Or is your heart so set on medicine that nothing short of front-line doctor duties would make you happy?

Whatever you do, I'm sure you'll make it through. Ganbatte sushi!


My parents are doubting my directions again. If it weren't for them I wouldn't even be on meds.
Speaking of meds my psychiatrist added Xanax to my prescription. How do people get high on this?


What kind of country are you in that being an accountant has more status and better pay than a doctor?! I have colleagues who were downright pushed into medicine precisely because of both these points. That's ludicrous. Are they stupid?

Have you looked into foreign scholarships? If you have good enough grades for medicine, you could enroll in it in your country then immediately bail out and have essential commodities paid for. Take advantage of all the obstacles in your way to really paint a good sob story and you're pretty much set. Maybe you can even avoid the whole enrollment process in your country and get a foreign scholarship+enrollment right off the bat.

What are you having to drink, fellow rolls?

I went out for dinner tonight and had a few different drinks: a cocktail called Chuck Norris which was bourbon, ginger and lemon; two different drinks in a jar; one spiced rum, pineapple, lime and ginger ale, and the other bourbon, orange, cinnamon and ginger ale. Finished off with some sake. Delicious times all round.

I started having shower beers once or twice a week after my runs. Feels good man.


I too have been doing the shower beer thing lately. It really is extra satisfying when tired and sweaty.


Calvados is really good.


I've had a second? or third? bottle of wine in my life yesterday. Not a wine person. A bottle of cheap Frivolo Prosecco. It was fine, achqchually. We split it with my so and had lots of fun afterwards.


I'm a sailor and I can't drink anything for weeks at a time so when I'm onshore I drink beer all day. Local brews usually but I picked up Leinenkugel's fall Shandy or whatever and it's pretty tasty. Like a light pumpkin ale.

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.

Not a movie, but it was long enough. Watched doom patrol. Wanted to check it out because I loved the comics as a kid, first volume of Grant Morrisons run was at my library. Surprised how much the show matched the comic, 1 back story changed and 1 character added. Don't think they'll follow the comics plotline though. They also changed a few designs, Mr.Nobody got the worst change.

I surprisingly liked the show. Not into 40 min.-1 hour format usually, time seems to drag in shows like that, but time flied in the show. The characters were pretty fun, albeit the narrator was a massive grate, and their powers were interesting. It's nothing that left me at the edge of my seat, but I'd be willing watch another episode if I had the free time.

I do have an itching paranoia the show might wimp out of the weirdness later on and keep a half assed "weird enough for normal people, but not weird enough to alienate them".

I watched tokyo story, it was so incredible in so many ways. I would say it's the best framed movie I have ever seen, the phrase of every frame as a painting has never rung so true about any film to me. Even if there was no sound or story I would enjoy watching it anyway. But there is a story, and it's really great. Of course the famous line from the movie is "life is disappointing", but the movie isn't depressing exactly. It's simply honest. People die. Childred grow distant from their parents. Sometimes people seem to act completely selfishly, but everyone has their own circumstances. If you could empathize with them you'd see. I just think it's got this great message, it's simultaneously uplifting and saddening. Yes, life is disappointing, so let's help each other out, because one day we're all going to be dead. Honestly I can understand why many people consider this one of the best films of all time. It has pretty much revived my interest in cinema.


I don't watch movies very frequently anymore and I think most hollywood/netflix movies are crap, but I think well written, well executed movies are some of the best artistic achievements ever made.

I remember watching The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly for the first time and feeling a bit drowsy around the time they blew up the bridge, but once they reach the graveyard, I remember sitting up in bed, becoming fully awake, and thinking to myself, "I am watching something amazing."

Do you have faith, sushi?

I have this old memory when I, as a kid, lost a precious toy. Asked God to help me find it, but to no avail. I blamed God for this misfortune and declared that I no longer believe.

Now I would say I am an agnostic, but I think I really want to find God. God, as someone to talk to, to confess to and to find support in. Lately I faced a lot of difficulties and praying helped me. I even made few liabilities, that I now struggle to accomplish.

When things go well I forget about my prayings and obligations, there is that thought that it is all my work and not some old dude above my head. Until now I went by this and it made me feel like a tiny, tiny man.

I really want to believe, but something is stopping me. Please, share something about yourself.

>>8718 (me)
I've tended to notice that atheism/secularism tends to be common in societies where most of your needs are taken care of and hardships are scarce/abstract.
I theorize that is because having faith in something becomes a necessity when uncertainty and chaos are a predominant theme within your reality - be that philosophic uncertainty, lived uncertainty, or existential uncertainty. This would also explain why many of them tend to be online - since netizens tend to only know suffering in an abstract sense, and are very much detached from the harsh realities of life (may also be part of the reason why netizens tend to hold more extreme views than the general public). Unwarranted certainty might also explain why atheists are very often stringent modernists like many of the evangelicals that raised (abused) them, while there are premodern, modern, postmodern, and metamodern christians outside of the american "christianity".

These are just my observations though. Thoughts?


>I've tended to notice that atheism/secularism tends to be common in societies where most of your needs are taken care of and hardships are scarce/abstract.
I'm not so sure. First of all, the US is a rich and comfortable place (relative to the rest of the world) but it is also very religious; at least, this is the case in certain parts of the US.

Also, remember that there are lots of atheists living very uncomfy lives. I'm not an expert on Buddhism, but I think there are variants which teach that Siddhārtha Gautama was not a god or even supernatural being, just a human who achieved enlightenment. If you count Buddhists as atheists, then lots of atheists live meagre lives in third-world countries.


I think you could say that belief in an Ideal bigger than yourself, in general, is necessary when there's a lot of chaos/suffering, but that doesn't necessarily mean religion. All the most important atheist societies and movements in modern history have come out of periods of chaos (religious movements have too sometimes).

It does seem like religion is more likely to come out of generations of suffering and oppression in which there's no hope for worldly change, and earthly higher ideals out of more dynamic periods in which people have some hope and agency even if there's equal amounts of actual pain.

What you say about modernism makes sense, but I'd just add that atheism/secularism movements are also different in different societies


One of the most interesting things that has come out of (anthropologic) religion studies in the past two or three decades is the realization that there is no such thing as religion in the broad sense of the word. The word Religion was, before the early colonial era, essentially always singular and essentially always referred to Christianity. When Europeans of the late middle and early modern ages came into contact with other belief systems, what they did was they projected Christianity onto that belief system imperfectly and humanistically, but teleologically, proclaimed it to be a "religion" - something that at least somewhat resembles Christianity, but is not belief in Christ.

So before we discuss where the origins of religion comes from and why some places are atheist, it's meaningful to discuss what you mean by a 'religion'. Faith in an ideal bigger than yourself is very much projecting the Judeo-Christian faith onto other religions in a way that's usually not realistic - far from being a model, Christianity - especially with its focus on orthodoxy ('correct belief') instead of orthopraxy ('correct practice') is very much the outlier. This is even more obvious when you go back in time to historical paganistic beliefs, and it's also the reason why modern paganism is so incoherent - it's projecting a Christian doctrinal, ground-up construction onto a belief system that's both older and more practical.

The Matter of the Gods (C. Ando 2008) goes into detail on this matter, and it also explains why - for the most part - religious systems oppression (as opposed to specific gods) didn't happen in the pre-Judeo-Christian world, EXCEPT to Jews and Atheists, and why, exactly, societies that were otherwise known to be religiously open kneejerked so violently at monotheism, why being accused of being atheistic was a massive insult, and why more organized religions could take the place of pagan belief systems [even while leaving the rest of the culture, including pagan rituals, largely intact].

Back to my point here; what does and does not count as atheism in the broad sense of the word, as opposed to 'doesn't go to Church', is actually an unresoPost too long. Click here to view the full text.


It's interesting to look at how the myriad metaphysics have adapted in a world in which colonialism and cultural hegemony has left Western European Christianity as somewhat of a religious benchmark against which others compare themselves. Especially in places like South and Southeast Asia and Subsaharan Africa where traditional unorganized religion is still pretty strong and groups try to codify and categorize both beliefs and practices to solidify their place within a wider community among organized proselytizing Abrahamic religion.

A lot of them seem to have appropriated, among other concepts, the Abrahamic notion of apostasy and its relationship with heterodoxy and atheism. Even in "religions" where there have been traditional atheist movements (in the strict sense of the word meaning without worship/belief in deities, but not necessarily a rejection of metaphysics or even some other aspects of theology) nowadays you can see purists outright rejecting such adherents' membership. The example I'm most familiar with is that of modern postcolonial Hindu theological discourse and the parallels with Christian debate and apologetics is striking, even if there's more of a direct relationship with politics considering the ethnic nature of it.

Regarding "faith" though, when I hear that word I generally tend to assume that the user is specifically talking about religion in the monotheistic Abrahamic sense, since in other traditions, even where there is orthodoxy it tends to revolve around some other idea such as dharma. I don't think people who discuss faith really mean to be discussing anything more than worship of a deity, even if they think they mean to be, because in an Abrahamic context that falls more into the field of philosophy. In my experience at least, if a guy asks me about faith, he's not asking what I think happens when I die or what it means to be or to know, but rather what I use to help get me through the uncertainty of an absurd life.

The answer to that question of course, is mai waifu.

How do you sushi rolls go to sleep fast or at a reasonable rate? I've been trying to get a better sleep schedule, but a problem I've run into is that it can take me 1-2 hours to go to sleep. I know it sounds insane, but I can't fall asleep at a normal rate.

I've sleeping 20 minutes after getting off electronics. It helps, but it isn't enough. Any tips?
2 posts omitted. Click reply to view.


Same situation as you. I've found that laying on my back and not moving helps. I'm guessing it puts your body in a sleeping mood, at least it feels like it with how my arms and legs numb. Besides that, I also try to think about something specific, kind of like counting sheep but better. It could be anything really, just something to take your mind off of sleeping.


I wouldn't worry about it sushi. In this modern world, everything has to be productive. You sleep, you wake up, you work. What's wrong with a couple hours of rest? It takes me even longer to sleep. I like to take a melatonin, do some reading or writing, and masturbate. If that doesn't work, I usually just stay up doing whatever or lay there until I sleep


File: 1598028734273.jpg (59.73 KB, 1280x720, 1597620402201.jpg)

Just like how people say pissing in the shower can lead to bedwetting I avoid lounging on my bed except when I'm ready to sleep. When the day felt unproductive I also feel compelled to mindlessly browse the internet so I divert that into a journal entry or some ramblings on a blog.


I don't know where you live and what the weather is like, but I find that if I spend an hour or two out in the sun doing some physical activity, I usually sleep quite well that evening. Exercise a few hours before bed also helps.
Otherwise if I've been inside in front of a screen all day I have trouble sleeping.


I open youtube on my phone and put on one of those 24/7 deep sleep music streams and it helps easy my wandering mind and lull me to sleep

Corona-chan seems to have affected us all at this point. For the first time in a century or more, life is just grinding to a halt; but of course, the modern era is unlike any other, and the shift that occurred in our usually hyperactive (sub)urban lives is quite possibly unique in the history of humanity.
Confinement is a very peculiar experience. Some dread the loss of social contact, while others might even go as far and call the situation comfy. We should not forget those that are currently in a very stressful situation due to this crisis, but it may be worthwhile to think about it for a bit.

How has this affected your daily life? How are you adapting (or coping, depending on how you feel about it)?
Are you picking up any new hobbies, or doubling down on existing ones?
What are you thinking about?

What do you do for work that hasn't been affected by things shutting down?

Personally, this has been very convenient for me. I've been trying to escape the social contracts that I've built up for quite some time now but really have a hard time doing it. Now, though, I can say "sorry social distancing!" and I'm working a one week on, one off schedule. It's pretty great. Sucks that something like this had to come in the wake of the health of others. While I may be growing tired of being around other people, I don't wish ill on anyone.


I've been noticing that a lot of people are now a lot more subtle when they have to sneeze or cough. It is cute, but also a bit sad at the same time.


I really like working from home. Being able to just wake up and get to work immediately is so much better then having to take the 30 minute bus ride to and from the office everyday. I really hope I don't get pulled back to the office after the quarantine ends. That said, I feel like when I was a neet just sitting at home in my PJs. I was planning to focus on my hobbies but I've just gotten too lazy. I also haven't left the house in weeks since I stockpiled food just before the quarantine which is useful but I'm getting a little sick of rice and beans…

I get what you're saying. I'm not a talkative person but even just seeing people at stores and restaurants was nice. That little stuff mattered.


Cases are spiking where I'm at so it's likely this forced hikkification isn't ending anytime soon. I love the solitude but I really wish I'd spend my time more productively. So many things I want to get better at but after all these months I have nothing to show for it. Heres to the next 5 or so months.


I work in the health industry and I've had to wear a mask all the time. So much so I already put it on by second nature even in situations where it's not required. It sucks.

Hey sushi, I've had this webm on my computer for a while, but I don't actually know where it's from or what the song is in the background. Any help?


Some investigating gave me this for the song: https://henshingarbo.bandcamp.com/track/k-on
and I believe this is a scene from one of the summercamps in mugis studio in k-on: https://va.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_olft7jwgqt1vn3kv9_480.mp4

Ok, this is a bit weird. I made that webm, and I can say for sure that the music is 'Dillagence' by Lapti.
The webm samples from the very end of the track, which is way too short in my opinion.

As for Henshingarbo's 13-minute opus, I presume that is a remix of Lapti.


Ah ok, I wasn't so sure about it
