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.

What happened to the filteries thread?

Press the nine tiles button on he top right to see all threads
Is there a thread for making visual editing requests? I looked thru catalog but couldn't find one. Anyway I guess this is the right board for that stuff right?
>>4941 Could you explain a little more what you mean? Sound like the OC thread would be a good place for that.
>>4941 Yes I would use the OC thread for that. Though be considerate and don't spam requests too much.

cringe anti communist songs. Anonymous Comrade 01/17/2020 (Fri) 03:32:17 No. 5380 [Reply] [Last]
i'll start with Johnny Wright - Hello Vietnam https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LNHOFyIaGD8 "We must stop communism in that land Or freedom will start slipping through our hands"
>>5380 but the theory that communism would spread geographically was absolutely correct
>>5380 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ps7xmW-9LXQ Dunno if it's anti communist per se but this pretty much sums up American exceptionalism

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=violABv826U >Remy: Better Now? (Post Malone Parody) I boomers idea of a communist dystopia. Whcih such deep lyrics like "Thought that things would be so nice and friendly/So why am I eating my neighbors dog benji?" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jO6XU5avP9s >Drain the swamp Not anti communist, but conservative rap (which is a surprisingly big genre?) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g8dR8veS2sg >The Red Scare ("Call Me Maybe" Parody) Nothing political besides the basic 'ha ha communist lazy'. I just found it funny
>>5397 >With the largest pool of natural resources and an agriculture completely mechanized the poor american snowflake thinks he's gonna starve. It tells you something about the burger.
>>5380 Here’s one from my country. The anthem of Viet gusanos. https://youtu.be/bxRUaJrsEiQ Hilariously enough the song was originally composed by a communist in the 1930s for the Vietminh but then was stolen (with a few word changes to the lyrics) by the Southern puppets as their anthem. Gusanos still use it to this day and always get pissed when people point this out to them. To the point that they continue to try and change Wikipedia articles on the song to say that the composer made the song before he’s a communist when this is objectively false on every account and never sourced (aside from the glowie US anthem database). Here’s the original lyrics: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fCltPtbEY4g

Yep, we back at it again.

Thread for n8, furries, furry related stuff, whatup.

I was thinking of reading Beastars, I heard it was pretty good.

>>5393 That's as maybe, but furry is a wonderful land of possibility where 90% of your body volume can be filled with cock and it just feels blissful.
>>5393 The guy actually did it a lot of horse fence-hopping for a while. There is a video of him doing it which is separate from the actual accident that killed the horse-fucker. As a side note why are so many engineers into furry shit. Mr.Hands, Doug Winger etc. were all white-collars with big money.

>>5412 Everyone knows that /pol/ loves interracial but they seem to dabble into beastiality too https://archive.4plebs.org/pol/thread/110904194/#110909774 As a side note most porn featuring beastiality on horses has them able to fit and not flare like crazy because they usually tranq the horses so they don't kick the actors to death. Its really rare for a horse to willingly want to fuck a person or be fucked unless they're in heat and denied sexual release. >>5415 Ask Tomoko-poster if they're still around. They know something about it.

let's talk about web development. i have skills in HTML CSS and Javascript as a hobbyst. i want to change career. https://careerfoundry.com/ what does /hobby/ think of this course? relatable? what are the skills necessary to land a developer job? what do you guys think of this: https://techcrunch.com/2016/05/10/please-dont-learn-to-code/ is psychological terrorism? the market it's full or there are possibilities to be employed even if you don't have a college degree? what is going on actually in the industry? everything related to web development.
If you're an OK web developer, you've read stuff about writing clean code, and are constantly thinking about how you could've made your work cleaner, there is more than enough work. I know a lot of developers, most of them are mediocre and I wouldn't hire them at my own company. 20% are really bad, 80% are mediocre at best, 20% are good and I would hire them. Of around 50-80 developers that I know, only 1 has a shitty paying job. The rest have jobs that pay pretty good. None have trouble finding jobs. I've tried scouting for frontend developers, there are none that actually know how to code, 90% of them bullshit their way through jobs and are very very unkowledgable about the craft. I suck at frontend development, and I still know more than they do. There's a shit ton of jobs out there and not enough developers, let alone competent ones. Finally, to become a good developer, you have to practice a lot. The best practice comes from work. Don't be scared of asking for jobs that don't pay well at first.

Instead of buying a course you could try pirating it. if you can't get a VPN try direct downloading. You can find a bunch of sites hosting rapidgator, nitroflare, etc. Just use duck duck go to search 'Rapidgator/nitroflare java tutorial' The best thing to do is install Jdownloader2 and let the downloads play in the background. If you have to buy a premium account use link snappy >https://www.tutorial-dl.com/?s=html If you don't want to pirate you can try edx free courses or 'free CS degree' list made online >https://www.edx.org/learn/html >https://github.com/ossu/computer-science Also pic related is a file sharing group I'm in. You can't get invited, but I can post some courses here as mega links

One Piece is leftist
19 posts and 5 images omitted.
Skypeia arc was good at dealing with the "no gods no masters" thing
This is probably the most obvious reference to communism in One Piece. I don't remember the cover story too well, but it was something about a workers' revolution in a weapons factory.
>>5149 Unfortunately that antagonist was a massive POS

>>5386 it doesn't have anything to do with him. He just happens to look like One Piece Che Guevara, now he's in Japan jail. Oda's got a Che poster hanging up in his office, I've said it before in this thread but I found the picture and it's neat to see. His office has a lot of weird bullshit though so it could be a random visual flare type of thing.

What youtubers does leftypol watch? I personally like codys lab and penguinz0.

Technology Connections is the only YouTuber I know of who obviously makes money from YouTube but isn't in any way annoying about it. I think because he gives off massive public access TV vibes and doesn't do any advertising of products, he just takes donations and runs their names in the credits at the end without reading them off. Combined with an interesting subject matter, good sense of humor and no hints of anything untoward he's all in all probably one of the best people on the internet today.
Oneyplays, YMS, SuperMega
>>5259 >without eceleb cringe humour >literally called 'cuck philosophy'
>Strange brain parts For a small channel he has really high quality. He covers obscure comics, old indie comics, and the history of some mainstream characters too. If you hate 'capeshit' you still might like his channel because he goes into a lot of hidden 'not traditional super heroes' gems >Comic tropes The same as the previous, but more mainstream. It's still into the obscure, forgeten heroes and bad comics. >Renegade cut The only out right political one. He his media analysis always come out with interesting leftists takes.

Alternative chans Anonymous Comrade 10/27/2019 (Sun) 12:54:10 No. 1648 [Reply] [Last]
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...

thinking about playing simcity4 again what mods should i get?
why not cities skylines
>>5398 Get the Colossus Addon Mod that lets buildings rank up bigger than in the base game, that's the coolest one. Also many people swear by the Network Addon Mod but personally I've never really figured out how it works.

Purely vidya, but every year fewer and fewer games compel me to stay I use linux on my laptop and like it, although I've fucked something up and it eventually crashes out and has to be rebooted every 12 days I tried to go full linux on desktop but a combination of somehow struggling to set up MySQL and there being no good N64 and PS2 emulators on Linux killed it for me
