Online friends

This thread isn't meant to be all about me, even if my writing makes it seem like it, it can be anything to do with friends.

Do you have any online friends sushi? How did you get them? What do you like to do with them?

I have a problem making online friends, because all the sites I go on are sushi rollymous. I have tried a few forums, but I can never commit to them, and they're usually pretty bad anyway. I dont have time for IRC, and I always make a big old booby of myself in live conversation. Do you think it's possible for me to make online friends, or should I stick to being by myself for the moment?

Comfy strangers

Let's tell each other about strangers doing things that made you feel comfy.

Recently I went to the laundry room to clean some clothes. I like to hang around in the laundry room and play video games and keep an eye on my clothes because I don't trust people not to take them out of the machine.
Sitting at the table was a man wearing a US Marines (or some other military) cap, I guess he was a veteran but I didn't ask. He had a creaky old laptop on the table and was playing a Christmas themed hidden objects game.

Pic unrelated.

Yesterday was my birthday and girl I wanted to ask to prom texted me that she will show up at my school.
Fortunate event. Got haircut and shaved myself, think I am good looking when I am fresh - you guys
even complimented me on face thread. I met her, few words exchanged and I asked her on spot. She said
no, because she had exams on her university, but I felt like she was going to say yes at first. Mind you, this was
the prettiest girl I know and I felt really confident talking so casually to her, knowing that everyone
was prolly looking at us. Later I heard that few guys had same problem, their girls just had to study for colloquiums.

Regardless, I felt really confident after that talk. I just wish I could have been always like that.

Don't know if this kind of topic belongs here. But does anyone else feel utterly repulsed by social media and the climate of virtual interactions especially on platforms where sushi rollymity is an option. Though whether or not sushi rollymous is turned on doesn't make much of a difference in the poor quality content produced. It's an endless repetition of temporary pointless trends and people bandwagoning another's point of view instead of establishing their own. I'm dead tired of the fanatic obsession focused on sex and politics over and over. I don't fucking care. I feel immobilized and unable to interact with most people my age, I don't see the purpose anymore of trying to be social especially in this unfiltered cesspool of vapid thoughts. I gave up on imageboards, lasted a streak reaching a full year. Came back occasionally to small boards to see what's up but I can see the toxicity slowly leaking in.

sam hyde here, internet's busiest music nerd

In the past I have been diagnosed with general anxiety disorder and more specifically social anxiety disorder.
It was so bad I couldn't even look people in the eye and I would start shaking whenever I feel like I am looked at, I would run out of classrooms at university because of anxiety attacks.
I can't remember what I was on back at the time.

I have now started a new course ( which basically guranatees a job ) and it's back. It's more under control because I am more mature and have learned to breathe, try to calm myself and distract myself but it still doesn't let me function as a human being. ( + )

I am too poor to afford therapy but my cousin works as a nurse. I have access to: paroxetine, citalopram, sertraline, venlafaxine, regabalin, tradozone and alprazolam.

( + ) I'm currently anticipating social situations and taking 0.50 of xanax ahead with like half or 3 quarters of an hour but this will not last me long because I'm developing resilience to the drug ( I used to take 0.25 ).

I exercise using the bodyweight fitness app whenever I can. I do not drink coffee, alcohol or energy drinks. I used to drink tea but at some point I realised black tea unsettles me and I kind of stopped.

My concerns are anhedonia and gaining weight because this happened last time.
I plan on informing myself for a few weeks first and I am seeking help.
If you can and want please share this post to communities which you think might me knowledgeable.

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.

How to be a good friend

Sometimes, people on image boards talk about not having many friends, but in order to make friends, you have to be a friend.

What are some tips you have for being a good friend for other people?

I'll start: being a good listener and also offering emotional support are foundational for any sort of relationship. Being a good listener means not just queuing up the next thing you're going to say, but actively listening to what someone says, and then asking them about it in more detail, or summarizing it with a sentence that lets the other person know you were listening to what they said. And emotional support can be when your friend is doing well or poorly. If they tell you about their new promotion or graduation or something, you need to congratulate them on doing a good job. It helps if you show you care about what they care about in their life. And on the other hand, if someone mentions negative things going on in their life, you need to be supportive. And sometimes, people just want to vent, not have a discussion about how to solve the issues.

Sometimes, you think about what you can get out of a friendship (from the other person). But it's also important to consider what you can offer as a friend to someone else.
R: 59 / I: 15

Itt: you tell us your core values in one sentence

If it 'might be true' or 'could have happened', then there's a very good chance that it isn't true, or it didn't happen

░✈FSG~Japanophobia✈░

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.

IRC: #fatstupidgarbage @ irc.rizon.net

If you have any questions, I will be happy to answer. Enjoy the fine imported Oriental goods. Domo arigato and thanks. ~だっちゃ!

Let's talk about poverty

Minimum wage isn't enough to cover the cost of living in America. There are currently 870,000 people in America who make minimum wage. That doesn't even count people who are working under the table, paid less than what people say on the books, people who don't pay taxes, undocumented workers, people who are paid barely above minimum wage (but still don't earn enough), etc.

Companies paying employees less than the cost of living costs taxpayers because then they have to support programs like foodstamps/EBT/etc. And many people voluntarily put money into soup kitchens or food pantries for poor people. But instead of getting mad at the companies that don't pay people enough to get by, the average person gets mad at the poor working class, who, despite working, don't make enough to make ends meet.

The American Dream used to be having a 2 story house, a wife, 2-3 kids, a dog, a car, and a picket fence. Now? The American dream is being able to pay rent and not starve.

Years of isolation and being alone have made me a very insular, closed-minded person. I have reched the point where I deleted online friends after I discovered that they harbored views or acted in ways I considered bad or not ideal.

It's like some affirmation action towards self-purification, 'splendid Isolation', Japanese Sakoku or a middle kingdom mentality. I know that this means I'll have no friends whatsoever but I can't consciously make myself more open and accepting because of the following logic:
>these people do bad things
>you are a good person
>Why are you associating with bad people?
>Remove them!

Smokes weed? Is gay? Watches shows on Netflix instead of torrenting shows? Fringe political views? Enjoys Rick and Morty? Cut all ties and forget about them. Even if they exhibit only one of those traits. I kid you not. I've reached this stagnant and ossified personal belief system that's so rigid I can't socialize anymore. An admixture of fear of the unknown and fear of being influenced or manipulated has made me unable to socialize, especially online, which is ironic since I consider people on small imageboards to be the most interesting people I could meet.

You don't talk to people much and, when you talk to them, they don't find you interesting.
You finally accept that you don't have anything interesting to say and decide to keep to yourself.
Suddenly, everyone wants to talk to you and everyone finds you interesting.

I'm not going to fall into that trap again.

Is 30 years old too late to start trying to create a life with no work experience? I don't care about getting "rich" or anything like that. I'm also wanting to try to actually take time and maybe try to learn some skills. I realized I've wasted 12 years of my adulthood already and it's going to be very difficult to make up for it. But has anyone here attempted this? Were you successful? Do you have tips for a borderline hikki that has been NEET for his entire life? I know one of the first things I need to work on in terms of my skills, that's building my social skills to communicate with people face to face. What's the struggle though with most of this is, I absolutely despise the general public, and can't stand being around them at all. I've tried over the years to figure out some way to make money online. But I've pretty much hit a dead end almost every which way I try to take. I've thought about going back to my roots and creating art again. I was somewhat in a better place mentally during this time. I used to do some photography and sketches I would post on deviantart over the years. However, I've long since taken all of my content down from the internet by 2013. I also used do short films on YouTube. But I hate what YouTube has become and not sure if I even want to try that direction again. I stopped even trying once gaming channels started taking off. I even tried out creating music for flash animators for a while. This was something I was okay with but it wasn't making me any money and I wasn't exactly that great at it. Mostly just composed random ambient music as well as some synth loops. I feel like taking my entire life and just trying to start from scratch. Is this even possible?

i know this is just basic existentialism talk, but we're so small i have trouble comprehending it.

and yet i'm still here, creating things, laughing at things, trying new things, reading new books, meeting new people, freaked out at how real this all is. i'm hardly a step into life and in a couple decades, i'll be back to dust. that's beautiful, somehow.

How do I gain the encouragement to study? Every single time I get even the slightest bit of encouragement, it'll only last like… one week. After that, it requires me to see my grades plummet to the ground to gain back my will to study. I hate being this much of a lazy bastard, but I can't stop it no mater how hard I try. I know when I'm procrastinating, but while I'm doing it I just give the typical "oh well" answer. I usually procrastinate either watching anime or browsing the web. At first this only happened to me with tests. Like I was able to do homework but I could never bring myself to study, but now I can't do either. I'm slowly breaking my chances to succeed at life and I very damn well know it. My parents don't tell it to me directly but I know for a fact they're disappointed in me.

Keeping Healthy

What do you rolls do to keep a healthy body and mind?
I find that one of the best ways to do both consistently is training yourself in martial arts. An good starting point for learning shaolin kung fu: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9f8zb_QKZEo .

One of the ways I train mentally is by doing regular meditation. If you are new to meditaion and don't know what style to pick, start with Zazen - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LL2XUTeoUsM (turn on captions). Some other techniques that I like are detailed here: https://tricycle.org/magazine/tibetan-buddhist-meditation/ .
I think it's important to learn to feel what the chinese call qi. That does not mean you have to become religious or convince yourself that it is anything more than a phychological phenominon, but the reason I think it's important is that it can be used to reach a meditative state even when going about your daily activities. I'm not an expert, but I think a good method is to sit or lie in a position that allows you to breath with your stomach (make sure to remove constraints like belts), close your eyes and take slow, deep breaths with your stomach. As you breath in, imagine energy slowly rising from the base of your spine to the top of your scalp, and as you slowly breath out imagine that energy sinking from your scalp back down to the base of your spine.

Sushis! I was on my first date yesterday! It was the girl I was talking to on the Internet for a year. We never met before but our houses are really close.
She is shut-in, but one of the prettiest girl I have ever seen.

About the date…
I was working on my car so I was over one hour late, she is vegetarian but I took her to burger place to watch Friends.
It was News on TV and she didnt want to eat their Vege Burger so we left.
I took her to a cafe where we ordered dessert and drinks.
She wasnt much of a talker so I grabbed some women's magazine and we made fun of it.
When we were done we went to the car and we went for a long ride. She proposed we go to a small lake with a beach in our area. We smoked cigs and I think we had really good time there.
We went for another ride, unfortunately my radio was malfunctioning. We werent talking that much, not that much as on the Internet, so silence annoyed me. She seemed fine.
When she was leaving I did not wanted to stress her (or to be rejected) so I just kissed her on a cheek and hugged.
She said she had a good time and we are going to the movies next friday.

So yeah, I did and said many stupid things but it is going to be better. I have to learn this social stuff.

Experience learning Japanese

I'm starting learning Japanese on a daily basis and I wanted to make a thread where people would share their tips.

Also a place for small hacks of the language.

Language - International Thread

Hello!

I've been meaning to do a language thread, but I thought it would be more interesting if it includes comfy-posting about different parts of the world.
Feel free to share the -best- resources to learn your language or others that you may be aware of!

I know its hard to not get political but please try to keep it civil, or at most do some friendly banter.

I'm from a country that used to belong to the Viceroyalty of the Río de la Plata, my main language is Español, and some tidbits of guaraní/portuguese.

However I'm interested in japanese[0] and russian, and of course, I would like to improve my english.

Greetings Sushi Rolls

628 days

That's how long it's been since I've been gone. I am very sorry for this, but I've been through a terrible lot over this period of time. I hope any member who may still remember me can find it in themselves to accept my apologies, but I can understand if you're angry. Again, all I can do it say I'm very sorry and ask for understanding.

It's very flattering that Seisatsu came forth and undertook rebuilding and hosting sushichan. For this I cannot express enough thanks to him. He's a very good guy. Also, no bully Undoall pls.

I visited the site last week during Christmas for the first time since I disappeared, and in combination with being contacted via email by Yakuza, a member of the IRC, decided it was a cue that it's high time I stopped in to let everyone know I'm okay and quite alive. I've attached a retarded picture of myself as proofs.

To further prove I'm who I say I am, I've redirected http://sushigirl.tokyo/ and http://sushichan.tokyo/ (two of the old redirects) to the current domain.

If you wish ask me questions, please do. Don't be coy. If you wish to contact me directly, email me in the email header of this post, or use the contact form I've created on http://sushichan.org/ . I will also be stopping by the IRC today when I'm not busy. I've missed you all dearly.

Happy 2018, sushis!

A Question

Hello there, I am a foreign entity that has chosen to spawn here. I am required by natural and spiritual law, to present myself in some form or shape that resemples something of your own, but as will be seen, I am not very good at pretending. I am not like you. I stand alone on this ground, and I am merely asking for a helping hand.

Can I stay a while here, and warm my weak soul on the comfortable glow of your hearts in here, and let my heart grow as vibrant and soothing as yours?

I have been writing some short stories with a fairly original premise recently and I thought you might find it interesting. For reasons that will become clear I can't tell anyone I know IRL about it, so I would like to tell sushichan instead.

Each short story takes place in the same location with the same cast of characters. They are about 10-20 pages long and are set in a near-future world with VERY light cyberpunk elements. The stories take place in a bar, and centre around the bartender, who I have deliberately given zero personality - he is a selfinsert for the reader.

Nothing really happens in any of the stories, the bartender just cleans and maintenances the bar, serves drinks to customers, that kind of thing. The point of the stories is the characters who come to the bar and the conversations they have with the bartender and each other.

The characters are either real people I know IRL transposed into the world, fictional people I have imagnied, or a mix of the two. The conversations are split pretty evenly between real conversations I have overheard and noted down, and conversations I have invented. I tweak the stories to make some fit and to make different conversations reference each other or build character, but the heart of a lot of them is unchanged from when I heard them 'in the wild'.

Each story takes place over a single day, and my intention is that the reader should read one a day too, syncing his weekly routine to that of the storyworld's. The regulars have varying schedules the reader will learn to anticipate. Students and the unemployed are more erratic, and workers have fairly rigid and predicitable schedules. The hope is that the stories form a parallel social life for the reader and take place almost in real time. For example, a reader might think to themselves: "Man, I can't wait until Friday's story - Mark said he'd come to the bar then and tell us how his date with Alice went," or: "I hope Ben is okay, he hasn't been to the bar for weeks", etc etc.

I am enjoying writing and reading back my stories, but because so much of it is just copied from my real conversations with people and because lots of the characters are real people (I even make an appearance myself as a minor side character), if I show it to anybody I know I think they will just call me a plagiariser or get offended by it.

So, I am curious to know - what do you think of the concept? Its shaping up to be sort of a slice-of-life anthology with some meta-elements and a heavy focus on semi-realistic characters interacting with each other.

Do you like my idea? Is it weird?

Comfy Beverages

Comfy alcohol thread? What do you sushis like to drink?

Personally I find the taste of spirits a bit too strong to be comfy, but I love relaxing with some red wine and snacks like cheese or olives. Cold beer is nice when the weather is hot too, but I haven't really been enjoying beers lately.
R: 25 / I: 8

morning routines

How do you start your day?

I usually prepare some coffee and buns, boot up my notebook and put on some OST that guides me out of the dream world. Sometimes it provides a catching tune to hum after rushing through morning toilette or on the way to work.

Music is essential for my wellbeing.

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.

Hobby Thread

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.

Does anyone else hate the fact they know a language?

All of my thoughts are framed as dialogue - when I think about a topic all I really do is have an imaginary conversation with someone in my head about the topic. I plan out sentences I might say, adjectives I might use, etc etc.

But the problem is that words are all mundane. I didn't invent them, so I only have a clumsy grasp of what they mean. Because I think in English words therefore, all of my thoughts are muddled and slightly ambiguous.

I wish that I could somehow forget every language or method of communication I know - I feel that then my thoughts would at least have the chance of being something higher, something greater than myself. The way my thoughts are pinned to the English language depresses me.

I wish I had never been taught to speak or write as a child.

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.

What's your perfect weather - time of the day combination? I mean, that moment in which you just want to go out and take a stroll around even if you haven't got anything to do; just to enjoy the moment and embrace true comfyness for a couple of minutes.

I personally love that hour or two after a strong downpour when the air is still a bit cold, the clouds are speeding fast filtering the sun and the sidewalk is still wet with some puddles. I love to get my earphones and wandering around, by foot or by bike.

Language learning general thread?

Admittedly, I've been wanting to learn Japanese, and I was dedicating quite a lot of time to it at around the start of this year, but things have been so hectic for me recently that I've gotten out of habit. Plus, my friend who could speak it fluently up and vanished, so I don't have someone to help me practice as effectively as before.

Maybe once things settle down for me (and when I get an actual desk) I'll get back into it. In the meantime, here are all of the Japanese learning resources I've accumulated:

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.

Meditation

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?

What kind of sushi do all you rolls enjoy? I'm a fan of the cooked tuna and avocado rolls with a small amount of roe, but I also enjoy basic salmon and avocado rolls.

The local sushi bar I usually visit has a pretty nice selection at reasonable prices, with friendly japanese speaking staff and usually relaxing jazz playing, so it's a nice place to chill out and enjoy some sushi or a cup of tea. It's interesting to watch the chefs as they cook and make the sushi themselves. The only issue I have with the place is the artificial lighting which can get a bit irritating after a while. It's a nice feeling to step outside into the cold and go for a stroll around the city after a tasty and relaxing sushi snack, especially on rainy days when it's particularly dark and all the light reflects in the puddles.

Despite all the amazing shit on the internet, we take it completely for granted. We stay in their PC puddles like facebook or twitter. We laugh at memes made by chans almost a decade ago, and never come up with anything original ourselves.

The tight knit community of old just don't exist anymore, well at least not on the surface web. It's just become to saturated with common people who can't utilize the internet. People who don't understand both how amazing and untamed the internet is.

Let me put it to you this way: The internet is like the wild west. The IRC's, the communities you speak of are the cowboys of the internet. The people on facebook and twitter are the carpetbagging city folk who want to make everything clean and safe and 'civilized'. They've built railroads (facebook, twitter, tumblr) and pulled barbed wire (PC,moderated forums, web monitoring by gov. agencies) across the internet to make it safe and cushy for them.

You and me are cowboy apprentices who came sometime before the railroads and barbed wire ended the west. Soon the wire will parcel the land and the cowboys can't roam anymore, and the internet will be parceled out like ranching land to big businesses (google, microsoft etc.)

Enjoy chans while you can. We all know the regeneration of this community is not good, the userbase will dwindle and die out.

I've been thinking we could create a lobby to chill and play, or even for those who don't have much practice playing with people and want to improve/learn.
Maybe if there's enough interest we could even organize weekly tournaments or something like that.

let me tell you about floation tanks also kn own as sensory deprevation tanks all it is is a box that blocks out all light and sound. its filled with water and a ton of salt, the water is heated to be the temperature of your skin

you lay in it and after a couple minutes you melt into the water and can no longer feel your skin, so all of your senses are nullified

you feel like you are floating in space
your body really isnt used to this lack of so you almost immediately start hallucinating it's basically a pyschadelic experience iwth no drugs.

most people freak out and cant stay calm for the first several sessions, once you learn how to calm down and give in is when you can have the real experiences and explore your mind

I just wanted to post some stuff I've been thinking about chans. There's no special point I'm arguing.

As far as I am concerned 8ch has been taken over and destroyed. I was just looking at some screenshots of some older 8ch stuff today: that whole story about the bank robber, people having fun with copypaste before racequeen, all the fan art about nomads travelling from 4chan and rebuilding. It was nice to remember back and think about what a good run we had. I feel like none of the new alt-alt chans have any hope of being close to what 8ch was and that's a shame.
More than that thought I'm starting to feel like the imageboard medium is a dead end. I asked myself what do you even get, today, out of an imageboard that you don't on reddit or something else. They're heavily censored these days, I find that the mods on these create-your-own-board sites really abuse their positions and remove far more than they should.
Maybe it's wrong to focus so much on the free speech aspect, the main purpose of chans is to free people by removing the assocation of their post from their identity. That is the key. What do we gain from that? Frustratingly a great deal of noise and incessant meme posts is one of the results. It's too easy to drag down the level of discussion.
The cultures are often based on paranoia and distrust to the point that spending too much time on a chan can leave you unable to interact and integrate with non-chan people. Not to ignore the enojable side of it: all kinds of chaos, fun. a place to learn about extremes thaht you would never normally see (gore, fetishes, horror stories, …). but I see the creation of OC drying up. Memes used to churn around pretty regularly, but now how long as pepe the frog been going? Also the weird meta-awareness and understanding of memes and propogation has created a weird new irony to everything. The innocent playfulness has been lost.
What would you like to see in the future? How can be change the medium itself to enable better more creative communities to form?

Some interesting articles on chan culture (got any more to share?)

Should solve the problem.
Just remove catalog-link.js from config and rebuild.
