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.

>>8017 Thank you. It doesn't matter how long because I didn't draw daily or weekly, even before I became incredibly suicidal and bedridden there were MONTHS when I did not draw. But now I draw pretty much every day at least 4 hours a day, I didn't skip a single day since I joined that art community (6 days) and I am feeling that I can keep going like that. Here are my first attempt to make a digital painting + my values study, both of them were made a couple of days ago. Right now I am working on a really huge challenge inside of that community, I am supposed to draw a storyboard for a music video (something along the lines of this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_z7YWIshHtE ), today I drew panels for the first 0:28 sec out of the required 5:30, I will drop it by the end of the challenge, 1st June.
>>8016 I don't know about critting gestures, these things are somewhat personal. Sometimes people with horrible scraggly gestures can pull a good illustration out of it. Personally I like to play up the overlaps and anatomical asymmetry where possible (thigh goes forward, calf goes backward--the tibia is nearly straight but a lot of artists bank it deep, especially weebs). Having an asymmetrical limb design also takes some uncertainty out of the drawing and saves time (i.e. avoid negotiating the symmetrical "blob limb" where possible) but be sure to catch the taper at the joints. One thing to try is imagining a rectangular cross section for your limbs, and doing the wrapping lines and connections accordingly. I get that from Ethan Becker screaming about cylinders on YouTube, but Vilppu's Drawing Manual has a chapter where he demonstrates this style.

>>8110 Half of Europe + North America is sitting at home because of COVID shutdown. Plus I was a NEET for very long time before that, the only constraint I face is my mental health which is affected by my bad living conditions. Some artists on 4chan's /ic/ are bold enough to have a 8h a day drawing schedule but I find it incredibly tiring and soul crushing. To get real good in drawing you have to treat it seriously, it's very time consuming and you should treat it as getting a degree, you either go all in for years or you are doomed to be a hobbyist tier artist or a weeb, cuz weebs don't have to study anatomy and values (values in painting allow you to make realistic paintings while weebs can replace it with simple comicbook-like shading, like in this pic). Lots of famous weebs don't even bother to draw detailed hands, feet or muscular bodies, some, like Ilya Kuvshinov ( https://www.artstation.com/kuvshinov_ilya ), avoid full-body drawings alltogether and simply paint their flat generic animu girls 24/7

Self Improvement Anonymous Comrade 04/09/2020 (Thu) 00:19:11 No. 8024 [Reply] [Last]
Hello comrades. ITT we talk about what we are doing to improve ourselves. I'll go first: I am trying to quit smoking. This is probably my sixth attempt but I am going to try and take it more seriously this time. I have been cutting down for the past few months and had gotten down to 3 cigarettes a day but when I tried to quit earlier this week I ended up buying a pack at the end of the first day and smoking the whole thing that night out of anxiety about quitting. I am a drug addict in recovery and this leaves coffee and kratom as the two substances I can use. The kratom seems to help with cigarette cravings or at least incentivizes smoking because I feel sick when I smoke on it. I might try NRT too. I am going to try and get back into running too since that helped me get off heroin the first time.
I suspect I have ADHD and am using the pomodoro technique to get stuff done. It's working so far and when I finish all my chores, projects, exercises, etc. I like to reward myself by allowing myself to watch 1 or 2 hours of YouTube, but the catch is that I only watch things in a language i'm learning so that I can get practice in that language while i'm being rewarded. It's a pretty effective system for me. I am also doing NoFap and Noporn because I do not want to be addicted to masturbation or porn. When I get urges I go outside and wait it out because it only lasts 2 minutes and that's all I have to endure.
>>8024 Best of luck, OP. I'm doing a lot to improve myself, but what I'm focused on right now is learning how to let go. Ever since I was a child I had a bad habit of getting tamper tantrums over having these uncontrollable daydreams where I imagine people I hate to provoke or attack me in some way or I relive shit memories. While I improved in various aspects of my life this has been an enormous psychological crux that stifles my ability to be contempt with life. It's like having demons in my head, it's torture. But I do daily meditation and informed myself a lot about emotional intelligence and how to let go. Managed to not indulge in any of these daydreams or aggressive monologues for a good while now, so it seems like I'm actually getting over this. >>8078 >by allowing myself to watch 1 or 2 hours of YouTube, but the catch is that I only watch things in a language i'm learning That's a very interesting idea. I'm learning Japanese at the moment, so I could try that out.

Reposting a cleaned up old /leftypol/ post One of the biggest problem of the modern left is the open display of decadence and lack of discipline. The alt-right memes about leftoids and radlib effeminate soyboys, sexual deviants and limp-wristed middle class kids come from the most vocal minority of the left, and it's pathetic that the left delivers right-wingers more and more material to mock us with by trying to defend this, which transpires into the already problematic mainstream opinion. In my opinion, there are several things to tackle on a personal level for success: - Sexual deviancy and promiscuity: Who you fuck and what your kinks are belong into your bedroom and nowhere else. Get pronouns and self-proclaimed sexual fetishes out of your bio and political analyses if you want to run a serious political or philosophical account. Put that crap on a private account if you want to. - Scruffiness: Groom yourself and work out. Get decent clothing. By treating your body with respect you will raise self-esteem and passively demonstrate that others should respect you as a person well. Moreover a healthy mind, resides in a healthy body, so working out regularly, not doing drugs and eating properly is important. Simple attire but not too casual. No punk shit either. The Communist Party isn't a Social Club, a minority or gay advocates rights group, or some shitty Mac Store where your faggot boss wears a Turtleneck sweater and asks you if you've had a good fuck; it’s a group dedicated to socialist discussion and thought. - Behave in IRL political events: Don't show up intoxicated, don't use leftist events as an excuse to party and chill, do not aimlessly riot, whatever you do, try to outcompete your political opponents, the libs and the right-wingers, in terms of respectability: If they drink a beer and sit in a camping chair, don't drink a beer, and don't bugger yourself into a camping chair. If you want to have fun, don't use your politics and do this with your friends. Disciplined public behaviour =/= no fun whatsoever in your life. You can easily have three beers later in the evening, with your comrades, or maybe with some people who got interested in you, just don't start bingedrinking while still in a political sphere or shout shit like "kill all white people tbh XDDD fukkk I want trap dick LOL". - Anti-work rethoric: Do not ever try to make you look like you want free shit. Reduction of the work day is reasonable, nonsense like "abolishing work" will make you look bad and it is utopian, it straight-out ignores the material conditions of production, especially the reliance of the material wealth of the western service economies on Third World labor. Wage labor isn't "work". Wage labor is a historical phenomenon. Nobody abandons the ideals of communism by working within the framework of what is materially possible - see Cockshott's schemes of organization of labor in socialism. You won't get your Star Trek replicators anytime soon unless you want to greatly reduce the living quality of everybody. - LARPing/sloganeering: What we need is actual relevant political knowledge, we need to equipped with actual modern data and statistics, so we can uncompromisingly maintain our claim to be scientific. While defending the USSR or other socialist countries is important, it is also important to understand the current political climate and the differences of today. That being said; When most normies think of Communists, they think of Red Army, Commissars, "COMRADE WE KILL THE CAPITALIST EXPLOITER", and that sort of Spartan mindset of "destroy the Decadent West". Seriously, there is such an appeal to Communism I think every Communist is initially attracted to but because there's so much in the way of Theory and History it just becomes more and more implicit until it is just fades completely at the back of his or her mind. Think of it is as a sincere - as opposed to ironic - self-awareness. If we want to "rebrand" we don't act like the Right and pretend we are something that we are not, we simply use the perception people already have about us and amplify it positively.

Ask your /fit/ related questions here. how do i overcome the wall? i'v been working out for almost a year now, gained about 33lbs mostly muscles. i have no made any gain in the past 4 months now despite woring out and eating the same way. how do i get past this and gain muscles again?

Will I die if I go from no workout in years to 40min workout a day / 100 pushups/situps/etc. a day? I eat healthy, am not overweight and am under 30.
>>8022 Just pace yourself, comrade. If something feels like it's too much, stop. Figure out how much you can maintain doing and do that, working up from there. Start small if you have to. There's no schedule you must follow. The important thing is you are improving and maintaining what you have.
>>8021 AAAAAAAAAAAAARGH COOOOOOOOOOOOOOOMING >>8022 If you have some heart condition or something like that. I hear if you do too much exercise you can damage your muscles and make you shit it out that blood. Also kissing girls gives cooties and Obama killed 7/11
>>7926 Question, how the fuck can I do that? I never seem to be at the right angle or not properly up against a wall to get the reps started

>>8077 You can destroy your muscles by causing rhabdomyolysis, but you have to bust ass insanely hard. >>8102 Look up some videos to see the correct form. Maybe work your way up with an easier progression first, like pike pushups or bent waist pushups. I find it easiest to do it with my back to the wall. >put hands on floor next to wall >position shoulders above hands, head down >extend arms >kick feet off ground >balance so feet are up in the air, heels against wall >do eccentric movement (lowering) >push back up >repeat for reps It may be easier to do eccentrics only if you can't push back up, same way people do when starting pull ups.

>>8044 >So this advice is for doing something once this is over. >over Anyway, I think you're right about me sabotaging myself. I've had a therapist tell me something similar as well as my parents in the past. Whenever I talk to people I'm constantly telling myself "they don't like you and don't want you talking to them" and basically try to rush through the conversation. Which ties into your first point, yeah, I definitely feel like I sometimes view conversations almost as dialogue trees. And it's weird because there are times where my brain just *clicks* and I find myself talking like a normal person (this is how I felt in my English class -- it was a morning class, a few of us would show up early and just chat about random stuff). So I know I'm capable of it, it just takes me getting over my anxiety to actually let it out. As for the friend group thing, I think my problem (at least with school) is that by the time I start to come out of my shell and become more comfortable with people, oops, semester's over and I never see them again and I'm not acquainted quite well enough with them to ask for contact info. I DID manage to get a few Snapchats last semester (and they were always the ones who offered), but I haven't actually communicated with any of them through that because... I dunno. I feel awkward doing that. It feels like I'm asking them on a date. I tell myself "this is weird, why would they even want to hear from you, let alone hang out?" It's dumb and ties back with my whole lack of self-esteem, which is probably the main underlying issue here. Doesn't help that because I'm an introvert, I don't go out much, so I have no idea where to invite people TO. This fall will be my third semester, so hopefully I'll end up like you and I'll finally find my group (assuming there's any actual on-campus classes in the fall, which is honestly seeming less likely as time goes by).
>>8080 >Whenever I talk to people I'm constantly telling myself "they don't like you and don't want you talking to them" and basically try to rush through the conversation. Not sure what to tell you there, cause I'm not an expert. I used to feel the same way about girls but I just ignore that potion of my mind and just go for it anyway. Gotta also work on your self-esteem as well, but you probably already knew that. Maybe Six Pillar of Self Esteem would be a good book for you. I'm reading it atm, it has some insights that weren't obvious. >So I know I'm capable of it, it just takes me getting over my anxiety to actually let it out. You are probably stuck in your head. Try meditation to be present to the moment. Meditation has a genuinely healthy impact, it isn't just woowoo spirituality crap. You probably should desensitize yourself to social interactions by having them frequently, so you stop feeling like they are a big deal. >and I'm not acquainted quite well enough with them to ask for contact info. You gotta step it up friend, I ask them for their number after the same lecture I met them, lol. You will get used to it, trust me. Just be like "hey we could study together some time". >but I haven't actually communicated with any of them through that because... I dunno. I feel awkward doing that. Anything stops being awkward when you do it often enough, that's one thing I learned in the past few years of becoming more extroverted. Overall, I do relate with you, I had some of the same issues. It's those psychological blockades you need to release. >hopefully No, it's all up to you and if you don't put in the effort it's going to remain a problem for the rest of your life. Just being honest.
