I've been thinking about how internet has messed around with the idea of 'indie', as in counter cultural media or ideas.
Getting the money to make a decent video/song and upload it to a top 5 streaming service takes a bit of money, time, and effort. To get big on these sites also requires making videos with little prerequisite knowledge needed, so most big videos are stuck on 'Intro into…' thought levels, easy to consume, and easily appealing. By popular I don't mean 10+ million views, but simply breaking 100k. All these prerequisites are just lighter versions of what mainstream culture has to do to get popular
This leads to an interesting paradox were for something 'indie' to gain popularity online it's already jumped through so many loops it's no longer truly 'indie' in a counter cultural sense. Often something 'indie' online is the mainstream culture with a new coat of paint.
I guess it's always been like this, but the interesting part is that due to the internet the "mainstream indie" phenomena exploded. Not sure how to explain this, but the internet allowed big subgroups and ideas to spread without using mainstream media. Before for an idea to spread a big 5 station had to cover it letting everyone know about it, but now groups can grow without letting everyone know. You can have a big 10 million group all around online, but somehow still not be seen as mainstream or know by everyone. This internet subgroup of being big yet not big works with 'indie' music to create a 'limbo indie'.
Limbo indie subcultures are prone to more mainstream type people, dare I say normie. They don't care as much about the subculture beyond basic aesthetics or having something easy to use to set them apart from the masses. A massive assumption, but I could say the limbo indie has caused the rise in 'aesthetic cultures', cultures that use symbols instead of effort to achieve a personal aura. they also actively fight against taking a subculture seriously, it's ideas or putting effort into it, because to them it's just a fashion statement not a route for serous change.
All limbo indie really is is mainstream culture rapped in a light coating. it's somehow popular yet unknown. It feels like this limbo indie will take over most real indie movements and create a world were all opposition is controlled. I'm not above limbo indie though and I'm pretty sure I've contributed to it's at some point. I'm not even bitter at it at this point, but more curious to see how it pans out

Hello fellow sushiroll :)
Lately things have been looking up. Got accepted for an honours degree in my dream field: evolutionary biology. Only have one assignment before I complete my bachelors to be submitted next week.
I'm also getting all the parts to build a new PC. My 3070 and R5 5600x arrived a little while back and the rest of the parts are coming next week.

Counterculture has always been either niche or ironic, though. The word itself is an oxymoron; you can't have a coherent counterculture without making it its own culture.

I'm gonna be honest, I never really associated the word "indie" with counterculture (although come to think of it, phrases like "indie chicks" certainly make more sense from that perspective). Like, to me an "indie band" doesn't necessarily mean a countercultural band, it just means a band who doesn't go through the mainstream music industry to get their music out there. I do see the connection, though - after all, it wouldn't make sense for a countercultural band to go through the mainstream industry, so they're necessarily indie. On the other hand, someone who makes the same type of music as Taylor Swift but self-records and self-publishes it would be considered indie but not countercultural. Maybe the internet did separate "indie" from "counterculture," since it used to be that most indie methods of publishing art were groups with a counterculture philosophy and were actively working against the mainstream, but now because of the internet it's just plain ol' easier to post something on bandcamp or your own website or whatever than it is to try to work with a major publisher - there's not really a philosophy behind it anymore. I feel like I kinda ended up rambling a bit here.

>I could say the limbo indie has caused the rise in 'aesthetic cultures', cultures that use symbols instead of effort to achieve a personal aura. they also actively fight against taking a subculture seriously, it's ideas or putting effort into it, because to them it's just a fashion statement not a route for serous change.

I can say with absolute certainty that this is not caused by the internet, it's just always been that way. In fact, the first thing that came to mind for me when reading that was the "mall goths" of the 90s, and that predates the internet. I think that's just the life cycle of countercultures - they start, they grow, they enter the mainstream, they become fashion, they die, they get replaced by other countercultural movements that haven't yet gotten to that phase. That's just how it is and how it's always been.

This is potentially true for music. But I still think there can be genuine "indie" cultures, in a loose sense of the term, which are nevertheless big on the internet.

Take the free software community. I have only ever had one IRL friend who ran Linux, knew who Richard Stallman was, etc. My other IRL friends barely understand what I'm talking about or why I would care about software freedom. Turn to the internet, however, and there are big communities where people who don't run Linux or a BSD are a shamed minority. So I think the free software movement is in a "limbo indie" state, as you put it. But I don't see any evidence of the philosophy being watered down because of this.

Sure, there are ricers, who only care about configuring i3 so they can save up some good screenshots for /g/ desktop threads. But everyone who runs Linux still gets their freedom, and derives benefit from doing so. The movement isn't harmed by being big on the Internet. The reverse is true - more adherents means more developers, bug-reporters, volunteers, etc.

I mean at least part of the reason you go through non-mainstream industry is literally because you haven't made it big yet or because you're not professional. Self-publishing authors have the eventual goal of being picked up by Penguin or something, but they publish online to get a readerbase and such and attract editorial attention.

Im still here sushis! Currently stressing about starting web development classes in about a week. My school kept stressing to focus on getting comfortable with JavaScript. Ive never really programmed before in my life so im nervous.

I just finished the schools precourse work and began doing some challenges I found online. I bought some books too (and one on shell scripting because I was feeling confident), so hopefully they prove to be useful. I barely got through highschool and that was more than half a decade ago. Community college was bad for me and so is s 9 to 5.

I recommend looking at Luke Smith's videos on youtube for shell (mainly bash) scripting. Less so as tutorials or for pure knowledge, but for inspiration for projects you can do. His linux videos are always about solving some problem, making a new tool, or something he came across and how to use it.
I struggled with my community college programming classes because they weren't very interesting and the projects didn't do much of anything but show that you can implement whatever was taught that week. But once I started making little utilities or scripts for myself things started to click. Having fun is important and making useful tools, however small, is a nice motivation versus just think "if I learn this I can get a better job in 2-5 years."

My schools teaching software gives professors a chance to send a message to all students regardless of enrollment so I've gotten random messages about classes I don't take from teachers I don't know.

I've also joined a teachers only group. I asked to be invited as a joke, but I guess a teacher didn't vet the requests so I'm in.

Hi sushi rolls, hope you're all having a nice day.
I guess I'm just going to use this opportunity to vent a bit about everything and nothing.

Looking for a nice house in a quiet place is harder than I thought. Moved to a big-ish city close to my job last year and it's eating away at my body and mind. It's never just quiet here and I can often hear the neighbours in my own living room. I know I'm a little candy-ass in that regard but I really appreciate silence and especially at night I don't deal well with noise. I'm hoping to find a small cozy place in a quiet town or village soon though.

I'm revising my first research paper for the third time after two straight rejections by the same journal, which sometimes feels demotivating but the current reviewer left some really good comments (previous one started his review out saying "so what" and calling everything "rudimentary at best"). I'll be happy when it gets published. I'm taking up more of a teaching role now, teaching chemistry practicals once a week which is fun. I love working with students and teaching them stuff. I often feel that I should know more than I do, but so far it's been going well. Is anyone here a teacher? How do you feel about this?

Anyway sorry for the venting, hope you're all doing well. Next time I'll post happy thoughts.

This sounds crazy, but do any of you remember the youtube comment section cult? Back when youtube had no filters you'd see a comment start normal, but then it'd copy and pasted the same "I learned the truth. Do you want to find the truth? Well check out [site I forgot the name to]" message. I don't even think they said that? It's such an old memory I only recall the gist of their comments. I know the site had like a scroll png on it. They spammed so much that at least one of you has to know something about them?
They were kind of every where. It wasn't just some bot, but multiple people linking to one site. They were also kind of unique because it was any earlier form of shilling your views online.

pointers in programming are funny to think about
Because you can chain them in a way that they keep pointing to another pointer.

so in theory:
Ptr_find->ptr_next->ptr_next->ptr_next->ptr_next->ptr_next->ptr_next->ptr_next->ptr_next->ptr_next->ptr_next->ptr_next = 1
works if you want to.

and i find that hilarious to just place that in your program just to have anyone looking at the code go "Wtf???? :DDD"

This is actually a thing in embedded programming. If you have an RTOS you may send messages between tasks, which are often pointers to structs with other points that may include other pointers.

The state of imageboards and internet as a whole feels like it gets to me pretty often. I think I already ranted about this elsewhere before but it's a frustration that doesn't go away when there is such a lack of places to go to on the internet that aren't riddled with spam that mods don't clean up, normalfags bragging or being sad they went for minutes without "le gf", people just looking for arguments to start, extreme moderation, extreme slowness or just being generally uncomfy in some way. This isn't a problem for most but the internet always was a hobby for me so I can't really just dismiss it. If nothing else, I hope it only causes me to withdraw further into my own hobbies like writing or drawing. It feels like that's all there is left sometimes.

I used to be like this, searching the smallest place, gatekeeping with trifles in mind, trying to get away from something I didn't like. But eventually I'd end up seeing something else I didn't like, and figure out that there was no place that had what I really liked. Or perhaps I didn't really like something in the first place.
I'll just assume that the worst will always take over, so we must be happy of having what we have, even if it's filled with stuff that I don't like. One day that place might just dissapear, and the only thing left will be the memories that we had with it, so better make them the best

Hello, I'm a small imageboard otaku.

Sushi is actually kinda large and sprawling, many distinct boards, lots of depth, multiple staff (at least two admins[?], maybe mods[??], even janitors apparently[???]). Then when a board is opened up, there are these massive threads that last forever, going back many years. It feels big and very daunting for someone like me, I was even overwhelmed when I first visited and cried a bit because it was so intimidating.

I mean, if this is a "microboard" then maybe the boards I'm most comfortable on are "nanoboards"

I feel like people put way more effort into their post on small image boards like that one. I guess it is because more people actually read it because there are not many new posts around and therefore the chance of a reply is higher. Within large communities a single post gets lost soon and attracts few to no attention. My guess is therefore the posts there tend to be of low quality. Well at least I am happy about every new post and read every new post.

Maybe you're right sushi. It's just that my whole life I've been surrounded by normalfrens (all my former/current friends are sort of, if not all normalfrens, with a few exceptions) and I've never really related to them outside of our mutual interests, like vidya.

I guess you should ask yourself what you want from a friendship. Are you satisfied with having a lot of them? Do you want fewer but deeper friendships? Do you want or even need a lot of social interaction? When do you consider someone a friend?
When the only thing you can relate to with them is vidya then I understand why you want to cut contacts with them. Maybe you don't even like the same vidya? On the other hand you could just meet them less?

No, I've never been the one to have many friends. I do prefer having less, but more meaningful relationships

No, I can go days without talking to anyone.
>When do you consider someone a friend?
When they know me good enough on a personal level and vice versa. I can't explain it easily through text.
>On the other hand you could just meet them less?
The main reason I want to cut contact with them is that I'm tired of being treated as a piece of shit. It took me quite some time to realize that they do it and it's sort of bittersweet. It wouldn't be even that hard, since 3/4 of my friend circle is online.

I need to cut down on my interests. I was supposed to finish a chinese book by today and I'm still 2 1/2 lessons behind. I haven't had the motivation for it this week and that makes me feel guilty.
I get sidetracked so very often. I can certainly see a pattern of self-sabotage here. But I can't seem to figure out the solution to it!
There is a sort of yin-yang opposition here where I want to focus on one thing and git gud at it but after a while at it I get tired and need something else. Problem is, if I have two topics in front of me it is very distracting because I feel pressured to read them both. I too feel that if I interrupt the flow of ideas in one thread I will forget a lot of details, and it happens often that in taking back a topic I do remember the outline but forget some details and especially the names of minor components, which make it hard to keep reading on.
Sorry for the blog post. I just needed to express this and hopefully sort it out too.

Is it me or cleverbot has gotten more stupid? I remember a few years ago it could hold a basic conversation, but now it can barely even reply. It's older cousin Chomsky is some how more readable.

After playing around with cleverbot and other bots a bit I realized they're fully capable of replicating online interaction. Talking to them like they're actual humans shows that they're robots, but the internet with looser grammar and a lot more "Did they really understand what I said before replying?" shit you could see them as the average internet poster. Pretty obvious, but the main surprise is how easy it was. Chomsky can fit in as an average reddit commentator, but it's 5-7 years old and made by 20 randos.

My local store has started selling caffeinated chocolate, chocolate squares with the equivalent of 1 cup of caffeine in them, and I know it's a tragedy waiting to happen. The company made the decision of having the caffeinated text be rather small and the listing of MG on the back so I know most people will just think it's normal chocolate. Someone will just not read the "180 mg of caffeine!" label or not be able to spaciously recognize 1 bar = 1 cup and they'll eat one to many. The chocolates are animal cracker size so most people wont be satisfied with 1 block and they'll probably eat 20 at once.

Wonder what the future of web/app design will be. Most unique website design were made by the web 2.0 hobby blogger crowd that just wanted to have fun or make something cool. This contrasts to the current webscape which is controlled by big corporations that just want users to stay on for a long time so they cans serve them ads. The more specific goal of the current web means sites try to emulate other sites or what studies reveal is a 'good', addicting, site.
Apps adopting or shifting to neon eye catching notifications, aggressive push updates, and infinite scrolling is an example. The web version of copy cating is the rise of showing recommended tweets/videos/etc on the side of the screen or actively boosting inflammatory content, tweet replies are sorted by most replies and not likes as an example. Most of whats seen as 'ubiquitous' web design aspects were only introduced in the last 5-10 years, albeit this is long for something to exist on the internet, when making money online became a goal. Compared to the old forums and sites of yester year current sites are just slightly recolored clones
I can only wonder if in 20 years companies will find the platonic ideal of a site and every one of their design will be completely identical. The only way to tell the difference between sites in the future would be the URL.

Well all that is only natural. As a passive receiver you fall under the illusion of understanding. To make it really stick you have to solve problems, in programming this means research. Forgot how to do a thing? As a programmer you'll face this often and you gotta look it up. Plan what you need to do, try things and look up needed info. And that's how you learn.
That's why math books are filled with excercises, they really are the core of the book, the text is there as a sort of background information to get you started.
>>9783
Perhaps you should start with godot so you get used to the tool and learn how to do things (outside of just reading the docs, see above) in it before you start an ambitious project. It shouldn't be too hard.

If my brothers school goes back into person they are going to legit catch every cheater or at least have a few raised eyebrows. His school stretches classes over 2 semesters so if they go irl in the second semester a very real grade discrepancy will be found. The most obvious example is Spanish class. The questions are easy to find online and if no one can find them they just use google translate. 70% have an A in the class and the rest just have 20% because they do jack. Once the kids go back in class and no longer have google the classes grades are gonna slam down. Kids who didn't learn everything in the first semester combined with the worlds worst Spanish teacher, I had her and she was rather weak when it came to teaching.

It's not too tricky to use google translate well, as long as you know its limits and capabilities. If you combine it with other tools, it can be quite useful, especially if you have the time to go over and double check your work.

I once used a mix of google translate, an online dictionary (tangorin), and my own basic understanding of japanese grammar to send some messages to someone. He revealed he had a good grasp of english so i stopped bothering with the japanese. When we met up later, he introduced me to his friend saying that I "could speak Japanese very well", but I really, truly couldn't - it took me hours to write those first few messages…

So it works, but you just need to be careful!!

Someone trying to cheat on their Spanish homework wouldn't bother doing that though. It requires time and effort, it requires a good enough understanding of the language to recognize and correct errors, and it requires reading and understanding the translator's output in order to find the errors. I'd argue that if someone did that for their Spanish homework, then it would count as studying, not cheating.

Its because she speaks zero Spanish. Sounds insane, but my state has an insane teacher shortage and requires kids to take Spanish to graduate. Most of the class is a premade digital learning system that automatically grades multiple choice tests. For open response, aka Google translate questions, the teacher just checks if you did it. Once the teacher starts watching students behind their backs she is going to notice a lot of cheating

RPG Maker's events and triggers and stuff are very easy to pick up and play with. I remember making a silly little town in RPG Maker XP(?) or something. There was a little sword fight I put in, jumping around, play SFX, flash the screen. Didn't need to look it up, it was quite intuitive.

I got a copy of Game Maker 2. When I first got it I was very eager to start, but there were very few tutorials and resources and stuff at the time since it was very new and that discouraged me a lot. There's probably many more now but now I lost all motivation. I'll boot it up again one day~

I think my teacher just gave up on grading? I'm the sushi roll who posted about their teacher being really late with grades and now that they're back I'm super confused.
I got an A even though I left the final quiz, 15% of the grade, half done and the final project, 25% of the grade, was done in 3 hours when it was meant to be 3 weeks (Super lazy I know). I think he under estimated how long it would take to grade and put some badly thought out deadlines. He put the final project due date 2 days before grades were due and I'm assuming he thought people would slowly turn the final project in before the deadline. What happened was everyone turned their project in at once. He figured out pretty quick you can't complexly grade 200 final projects in 2 days and just started skimming them.

If your teacher is a research professor, then they are probably pretty busy.

Sushi roll this is very strange but I'm going to assume you're not joking okay? For more than a year there has been a global pandemic called covid-19 or coronavirus that kills lots of old people and fat people and every country has been changing the laws about whether you're allowed to go outside and when and who you can see every week to try and juggle killing less people with making people less suicidal and everyone keeps losing their jobs and education and can't buy food anymore and every couple of months there's a big panic and people start fighting each other for groceries and guns.

Forgive me but I live under a rock and rarely if ever talk with anyone or leave my room. The longest I've gone without contacting the outside world was 3 years but I decided that I would force myself to get an update every 6 months or so after I missed 9/11.

> every contry has been making laws about when you can or cannot leave

Now it makes sense why it took so long for me to catch on. These laws never affected me, so its like nothing changed.

Wow, so you've been a shut in since before I was born. I'm surprised whoever takes care of you hasn't mentioned it, this is far bigger than 9/11 although I admit the worst part for me has been not being able to order a cd from japan. Sorry if I'm out of line but imo if you did want to learn to leave the house again now would be the perfect time since so many people are scared to go out so there would be very few of them, and if there is anyone they won't approach you for the same reason. It's now normal to wear a face mask in public like it is in japan so you can hide your face if you want. Just make sure to stay safe and take some hand sanitiser with you to keep corona-chan at bay!

I'm making some chili. I've been pretty isolated because of Corona. I find it hard to make lasting relationships with people because I end up messing things up because I have a tendency to be combative over things.

Create something. Personally, I've found that opening up some game engine like Godot or Pico-8 and just trying to make some crappy little game tends to help me a lot when my mind is stuck in a loop of upsetting thoughts or memories. Alternatively, play a difficult video game that forces you to focus and distracts you from whatever you were thinking about.

Going to go thrift shopping for the first time today. Kind of worried because it's become mainstream now so all the big cities have slim pickings. I live in the midwest which people says has 'good finds', but I also live near the city which people say has bad finds.

The only reason why I'm thrifting is because clothes are way to expensive. In my area the stores are basic "Khakis and polos" or in the mall and crazy over priced. I few Kohl and TjMaxxs, but I've sweeped through them

I'm mostly thinking about this because it's the first time I'm shopping for myself. Somehow I've managed to live off of off clothes my parents bought and birthday gifts all these years.

Went through my old files and found a txt note with 4-5 giant, averaging 10 to 20 gb, book megalinks I found on /lit/ a long time ago. I'm pretty hyped. Main reason I want to use it is that I have a bad problem of reading a book, but getting distracted by the mentions,Ex: "In x's thesis" makes me feel like I have to read his thesis. By having my own 10 gb, books are small so thats 2000+ pdfs, library I can safely block all other book downloading methods, the main cause of my distraction.

I'm going to look at soups next, because they're super cheap and also a bit lighter in calories. Biggest change here is that I'm actually buying vegetables, which is something I've never really done.

Really, anything's better than what I've been doing. Snacking through the day and all my foods requiring at most 5 minutes of prep. Plus I'm pretty sure I ate Burger King like 10 times last month.

I feel your loss, sushi. My cat died last June and I still think about her daily, she was sick too. Furthermore she was also black and white. Simply reading your post made my heart ache again.

That's a beautiful picture.
There's lots of things you can do, perhals make some hot chocolate and snug yourself up to play videagaem or read a bok.

Just back home from a meet up with friends, I'm so happy to have a group of people to socialize with.

Tomorrow I'll study to my heart's content.
