Welcome to /hobby/, plus mod feedback thread! Comrade Board volunteer 10/23/2019 (Wed) 16:57:58 No. 1 [Reply] [Last]
Hello everyone, and welcome to /hobby/! This topic will serve as an introduction as well as the mod feedback area. I know that some people were not on board with our decision to merge the boards, but please give it a chance and hopefully you will find it to be as comfy as where you used to hang out, but with more population. In addition, Comrade King has kindly volunteered to migrate over all the topics that have had activity in the last few weeks so you can continue your conversations.

However, I want to stress that this board should be treated as a clean slate and you should make use of the freedom that it allows. In this space feel free to make topics about any kind of hobby, entertainment, passtime, interest or vocation. These topics don't have to be related to leftism, though of course you should feel free to do so if you would like. Overall, this board is intended to give refugees of 8chan somewhere to post about their favourite interests without having to go into whatever new skinhead-infested DoD honeypot is created to replace it. An example of the kind of topic that might be encouraged is to start a topic discussing your favourite workout routines or recipes, or discussing an interesting movie that has recently been released. We would encourage people to put effort into their OPs however, as one line shitposts might be more comfortable on /GET/.

As we have merged other boards in order to create /hobby/, we would like to remind all users that it is possible for more boards to be created in future out of /hobby/ if they demonstrate a good user count/post volume such that they would be able to support a board on their own.

Overall, the moderation standards here are similar to the ones on /leftypol/, and I have included their manifesto for reference, with the exception that posts do not have to have a political slant or basis. I hope you will all enjoy this board together and that we can have some good conversations.

Will the game threads be moved to /games/ Or do we have two boards for games?
>>9703 Probably moved depending on what kind of content /games/ will include. I suspect things like WH40K would stay here while vidya would go there.

Making a leftist youtube channel. Anonymous Comrade 05/27/2020 (Wed) 00:27:56 No. 9948 [Reply] [Last]
ITT we help each other and guide each other on how to conduct a succesful youtube channel and to spread the word of /leftypol/ through breadtube. Theory is now transmitted through youtube let's plays. To make a youtube channel, you need: >An editing software and editing skills. >Knowledge on how to make thumbnails using photoshop (?). >Knowdlege about how to make a script to your videos, how to mantain them interesting for the audience. >Knowdledge to evade youtube's desmonetizations, as it has been proven that they also affect how Youtube interacts with the videos, pretty much shadow banning them. >Knowdledge of the tech market to buy the best microphone for your buck. >Knowledge to record yourself without looking to out of place. >Knowledge to read a script with passion, instead of reading a school essay. Make Leftube Leftypol Again.
You don't have a chance anymore with the algorithims. Maybe Spotify will take off now that Joe Rogan is taking his $100 million payout and moving from Youtube to there. Sony Vegas is pretty easy to use video editing software.
Good idea. >>9960 It doesn't matter if your content goes viral. Some people just follow whatever's popular. A lot of people seek out niche or less mainstream content. Particularly, there is demand from communists for decent quality content that attracts your attention, and if your video is interesting and engaging, without being to larpy or dogmatic out the gate, then it can be a good way to persuade sympathisers and political fence sitters. If you want some inspiration, prolekult is a really good cinematic quality channel on youtube, I highly recommend them. What sort of videos are you interested in making?

Why do Americans have the most retarded interpretation of this film imaginable? Anonymous Comrade 05/08/2020 (Fri) 17:49:15 No. 9288 [Reply] [Last]
Holy shit, I've rarely seen a movie as on the nose and blunt in its critique of capitalist society, and yet Americans seemingly cannot comprehend what it's a criticism of. I've seen "It's about authoritarianism" "It's about the death of free market competition" "It's secretly about socialism!" Holy fuck, how can it be possible to be as retarded as burgers? It's like unless a film blatantly jumps up and down shouting "CAPITALISM BAD" they literally can't parse out any form of symbolism or allegory at all. Why are these people such idiotic apes? The writer/director was literally part of the South Korean Socialist Party, tf is the dysfunction in burger brains?

>>9945 >most likely removed anything even remotely class conscious Nah thats how they used to do it. Now they twist the class-conscious rubbish to be liberal and evil, so that potential socialists are diverted; left-wingers into liberal idpol groups and right-wingers will completely reject any attempt at seeing the message and edge more into fascism.
If anything, its class theme was too brutally overplayed to the detriment to the overall film quality. Chris Evans sells the movie with his performance though. >>9300 Thats what the conductor (and the old guy apparently) wanted him to do, Chris Evans didn't necessarily follow through. Arguably it is what the porkies want, a 'aspirational' lower class person taking over the reign. >>9505 Crazy Rich Asians fucking sucks. I am so mad about the ending. At least the casting of the local actors was pretty good
>>9288 The plot has some similarities to Animal Farm in some regards which is why neo-libs think its anti-communist. Why Animal Farm is thought of as such as well is explored in >>5161
>>9950 >Crazy Rich Asians fucking sucks Why >mad about the ending whats wrong?
>>9291 TV tropes is garbage because they have a policy of not removing the interpretations of any person. So if one person says Barnie is a criticism of Capitalism, they'll leave it even if everyone in the comments says it isn't. That's why TV tropes is so bloated and often so dumb.

Post all obscure and underground imageboards in this thread, the chan must be at least half-dead so no archived chans.
>inb4 'hurr durr don't put muh sekrit klub in the limelight'
The population here is low as it is, there's also a large overlap between this chan and others.
I'll start:

There was this one I faintly remember and I think the theme was either dinosaurs or lizards...

I like to imagine alternative timeline where imageboards, kind of molded into decentralized, open source social networks as an alternative to the shitshow we have now.

No love for Pasolini?

Who else wants the last Blockbuster in the world to stay? I hope it survives and can be a sort of museum. There were 9,000 of them around the world, but now there is only one left and it's in Oregon. https://youtu.be/jJMEPHNjHE0
>>9953 Blockbuster was a fucking legend, back when Netflix was sending CDs in the mail and online movies were unvailable except through Russian hacker torrents and Piratebay. I want that building of Nostalgia to stay up, its a great memory of simpler times.

>>9954 >What the fuck is this argument The point of the argument is that just as with government invasion of privacy, the opposite is also true. Mass armament (as if ready for war) is provocational, you might as well be fucking Sparta. If, after the Revolution, Proles must cling to guns in the paranoid idea that "can't let the guvement do something bad!" there is no point to the Revolution, no security, no peace, nothing. >muh state >abolish it!!!

Red Metal Anonymous Comrade 05/22/2020 (Fri) 22:44:58 No. 9863 [Reply] [Last]
As an avid listener of metal, something that frustrates me is the prevalence of chuds and reactionaries in metal (especially black metal). The visibility of guys like Varg and Famine of Peste Noire infamy has colored the public perception of extreme metal as being the domain of edgelord fascists. What are some metal groups that could be said to be socialist, anarchist, or leftist in some manner? To start things off, I'd highly recommend the Panopticon album "Kentucky," which is a BM album about the state's history with labor organizing among coal miners, as well as the coal industry's destruction of the state's natural beauty. It's not a perfect album by any means but the way it mixes BM with bluegrass is cool, plus it has an incredibly redpilled message. https://youtu.be/gSObRNcPAv8 https://youtu.be/2zwxEKmoVD4

Kinda mediocre, but the scene is fucking tiny anyways. The Zetkin song is pretty cool.

>>9893 >>9894 Nice one!
>>9863 >>9893 >>9894 I don't really like the sound black metal that much, but I'm glad this exists. Why is there no radical leftist speed metal or something like that?
>>9940 Most metal really doesn't have an explicit political agenda, it's mostly escapism. There was a phase in the late 80s when thrash bands started to introduce more grounded themes (mostly cold war related, some ecologism too), but it was more of an identity crisis than a real movement. Punk lends itself better to sloganeering, anyway. In fact, most political themes found their to metal through hardcore punk.

Re-watching Avatar rn since it’s on Netflix Forgot how fucking good, based, and red-pilled this show was tbh I’m surprised how, despite the silly gags, younger cast, and less pandering to teenagers this show still feels way more mature and intelligent than Legend of Korra
>>9935 Honestly, just for one instance, this show treated war and environmental degradation WAY more intelligently than Korra does; and the world building is so much deeper, an industrializing world that’s roughly our 1800s with its own unique feeling
Holy shit, anyone else notice that the names Fire Nation and Earth Kingdom actually fit our understanding of the two forms of state? The Fire Nation is indeed a centralized nation-state where all regions are governed by a central authority, whereas the Earth Kingdom is a decentralized feudal society where governing is by local governors, kings, and lords that pledge loyalty to the reigning monarch
>>9943 all of the societies are sorta analogues for epochs of human civilization, air nomads are hunter-gatherers with herd pasturing and light agriculture, water tribe is settled small agricultural societies in the northern water tribe and large semi-feudal kingdoms in the southern water tribe, the earth kingdom is pure feudalism developing a bouj class, where the fire nation is basically at the start of mass-industrialization.
