Buildings should last Anonymous Comrade 05/13/2020 (Wed) 20:57:19 No. 9523 [Reply] [Last]
So many fabulous and easily maintained buildings have been demolished because of short-sightedness. We shouldn't be vandals of architecture. We should preserve the Penn stations and the Russian cathedrals of the world, and not just demolish our monuments. We should rebuild some of them as well. People don't just have utilitarian needs and need a "spiritual" or imaginative side which is opposed to efficiency but which startles you. https://youtu.be/09gsVlroH3A

>>11999 So is Senegal an "M-L" country in the same sense that Mozambique and Angola are? (i.e. totally revisionist and authoritarian Capitalists like most African countries anyway) Being that they're actually willing to do token things like work with Based Koreans. Anyway, I think the statue is a fine piece of socialist realism, but you shouldn't be building pretty statues when your country suffers from severe underdevelopment and wealth inequality. Out of 189 indexed countries, Senegal ranks 166 for human development thus putting it in the lowest tier. IMF colonial horseshit of course keeps them down in many ways, but leadership that builds a nice fucking statue (that I'm sure won't be maintained) over literally anything else is shooting yourself in the foot.

>>9829 exactly it's not so much that modern architecture or modern construction is shit its more like porky wants to extract as much value as possible with yogurt carton luxury condos and office buildings, that and a lot of rich people just have shitty taste. >>11999 Despite being very click-bait brutalism the spomenik monuments to commemorate victims of fascism are legit siq. They were mostly locally commissioned from living yugoslavian/baltic artists and I think did a good job in reimagining what a "war monument" looks like but still being relatable and striking. So many classical/ western culture concern-trolls forget that there are a lot of "classic" structures/ architecture that are just nostalgic fakes - confederate statues, neo-classical architecture, entire "medieval" towns built for the Worlds Fair etc
>>12019 >"medieval" towns built for the Worlds Fair Got some links to that, sounds interesting!
>>12016 >So is Senegal an "M-L" country in the same sense that Mozambique and Angola are? No, but the DPRK has good relations with many African countries whether or not those countries are ML since they supported anti-colonialist struggles across Africa. Also Angola and Mozambique are officially socdem since the 90s.
>>12044 Africa has gotten pretty revisionist or even reactionary since the USSR fell, sadly

Why were the 80s such a good decade for horror compared to before or since? Anonymous Comrade 07/10/2020 (Fri) 17:26:01 No. 11995 [Reply] [Last]
Before anyone says it Yes Obviously most horror films from the 80s were shit, as with most movies in any decade However, I do have to say that the 80s seem like the horror decade, the decade that set most of the new trends for horror and introduced the most classics, while, IMO the 2010s were the second best decade for horror, they're still far-outstripped by the 80s, why?

>Forced Entry is a 1973 adult horror film written and directed by Shaun Costello under the pseudonym Helmuth Richler. It stars Harry Reems (credited as Tim Long) as an unnamed and psychotic Vietnam War veteran who sexually assaults and kills women who stop at the filling station where he works as an attendant. Called "one of the most disturbing and unpleasant porn features ever made," the film utilizes actual footage of the war, predominantly in the rape and murder sequences.[1] https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Forced_Entry_(1973_film) >Noting the film is "the first film to show a disturbed war vet coming home from Vietnam," Ed Demko calls the film "one of the more important and relevant films to ever come out of that age of pornography. It’s a film that really transcends the time that it was made and might even be more important now than the age it was made. Sure there’s a ton of nasty sexual activity in the film but the subject matter and what the movie is actually saying goes way beyond that."[4] >In "Forced Entry: Serial Killer Pornography as Patriarchical Paradox", scholar Robert Cettl assesses the film's role as pivotal in the history of American serial killer films and discusses its subversion of American patriarchy "by highlighting a paradox in relation to hegemonic masculinity" and how the director turns pornography "into self-conscious political discourse", arguing the film critiques patriarchical reaction to second-wave feminism (represented by the independently-living female victims) as grounded in war-mongering (rape-murder scenes interspersed with footage from the Vietnam War) and ultimately doomed to self-implosion (the killer's suicide).[5]

>>12024 I never thought about this but it's kind of true. it's kind of fun to watch bourgeois middle class try to fight for the lives and die trying. like I had this mentality watching horror before I even gave a fuck about socialism.

>Any thoughts on the current podcast on russian revolution by Mike Duncan? (https://www.revolutionspodcast.com/) Sounds interesting. I might give it a listen. >Any other interesting podcasts to listen to? Both have been talked about and recommended on /leftypol/ a ton, but: Moderate Rebels -- Good anti-imperialist pod by the Grayzone guys Cumtown -- Funny (Stav is fat, gay and a pedophile) Does anyone know of any good film podcasts that aren't just people talking about the big, new, English language releases and the same old, 80s, cult b-movies? I want something that has a bit more variety with some foreign films and films from the 60s and earlier.
http://generalintellectunit.net/ General Intellect Unit, cybernetic Marxist podcast. They examine "the intersection of Technology, (Left) Politics, and Philosophy". Just found out these guys. They seem interesting.

Trolling So-cal businesses by recording bosses for no reason Anonymous Comrade 06/02/2020 (Tue) 09:01:57 No. 10158 [Reply] [Last]
https://youtu.be/aauFUWkKoc8 All he's doing is filming their building. But it's funny as hell to see these industrial workers panic and trying to intimidate the camera man, and then summon a boss, and finally cops. At one point they even try to block his view into the building by getting employees to stand around blocking the view with a piece of cardboard. It really drives home how so many of these bosses act like mafia bosses that have to protect their pride by stopping the camera man.

these videos are hilarious. I had no idea that "First amendment audits" were a thing.
Reminds me of this classic series: >Surveillance Camera Man: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mP5ZVPwP7bg Could be interesting if it was subverted to specifically cover business owners, I fully support this subversion.

Comradely reminder that if you go into a store that you think may try and swindle you, record them.

ITT post practical survival, self-sustenance and cost-cutting tips, not utterly useless political/macroeconomic/philosophical theory (that you will never be able to implement anyway because you are just plebeian on the internet, not part of the ruling class) and whining that you see on /leftypol/ The target audience can range from scavenging hobos to minimum wagers to landowners with no mortgages.

Lucid Dreaming and Dream Journaling Anonymous Comrade 06/08/2020 (Mon) 11:40:13 No. 10312 [Reply] [Last]
Any anons practice this? How's it going? I was really into LDing when I was younger but drifted away due to the usual suspects of work, school, and alcoholism. Been thinking about buying a dream journal and getting back into it. I still remember most of the basic ideas like reality checks and DILD/WILD, but it's gonna take some work to start putting them back into daily practice.

>>10800 Checked. Yeah I think that's less a dream thing and more of a connection (astral or something) with your closest people. I can feel when my mum's having a night terror she can't wake up from usually, even in my sleep.
>>10312 Sleeping on your back or stomach helps pressure blood flow from the heart to the brain and causes a mild asphyxiatory effect that allows for very detailed dreams. An old /x/ theory is that really realistic dreams are ways for demons to steal your soul energy or something. Personally I think that some more realistic dream events are alternate universe versions of you world and ourselves that we get to visit while in an unclear state of mind.
>>10814 >causes a mild asphyxiatory effect bruh wtf. i aint never sleeping on my back again. you can DIE?
>>10815 Only if you have a really weak heart/lungs. If you're healthy you have nothing to worry about.
>>10312 Put a foam cover over your mattress and sleep on your back without a pillow. Say hello to wild deams.

do you watch sports?
35 posts and 4 images omitted.
American Football isn't really my kind of thing. Football (soccer) was good, and basketball is fun to watch sometimes, but really I just prefer to play it instead. Badminton and Tennis are fun but a lot of the players can be cunts for some obscure reason. I unironically think that after the USSR fell sports quality around the world has fallen; Russian soccer teams are a fucking disgrace, Russin basketball teams are nonexistant. etc. etc. A unique sport I enjoy is figure skating. You can talk shit about them all you like, but at the end of the day 90% of people won't be able to even begin to replicate those moves without dedicated practice.

I watch American football.
>>10628 The best alternative is to watch all the individual fights of an event on youtube but you won't get English commentary.
>>162 Its more fun to play them than to watch.
