bill burr on OPM Anonymous Comrade 11/25/2019 (Mon) 00:06:50 No. 2964 [Reply] [Last]

what does /hobby/ think of comedian Bill Burr's interpretation of "One Punch Man"?
Damn that was nice, was not expecting such a nice anti corporate analysis. I was probably the guy who just got fucking high and watched this bald headed dude punch half a crab in the face and watched it explode.
Bill Burr is basically stereotypical working class burger masculinity. His success in comedy and podcasting has given him some more bourgeois values, but for the most part he does a good job of maintaining a sense of what it's like to be a regular guy, and he's sharp enough to do inject social commentary. Some of his bits are simplistic "wew look at these triggered libs" but that's mostly bait to get drones to watch him when he makes more complicated points.
Wow, I didn't even consider his analysis of the crab or the mosquito lady and I've gone through the show and manga 4 or 5 times. In the case of the blood sucking whore it is pretty obvious in hindsight.

Persona 5 Anonymous Comrade 10/27/2019 (Sun) 05:45:03 No. 1627 [Reply] [Last]
I've seen some people who claim this game has very revolutionary messages and even promotes anarchism but it just seems like a really half baked and generic "rebel against authority" message. Thoughts?

Can someone help me decide what Persona game to play after finishing 5? They're too many versions of these games.

Apparently all the versions of Persona 3 on the PS2 don't have controllable party members, and the PSP versions lose out in presentation. So the best way to play this is on an PS2 emulator with a controllable party member mod, correct?

And what about Persona 4 PS2 vs Persona 4 Golden? Which version is superior?
>Can someone help me decide what Persona game to play after finishing 5? They're too many versions of these games.
Persona 2 - Innocent Sin on PSP and Eternal Punishment on PSX

If you actually like the gameplay then just play the original Persona 3 FES, controllable party members make it really fucking easy. But the game as a whole is such a slog that there's no shame in doing it anyways.
If you really like the turn based Pokémon style of gameplay than what that other anon said. Else maybe try out Q or Arena.
Should you play the previous personas and SMTs, this goes back forever and it's so much work.

Persona/SMT games aren't really connected to one another so you can play the recent titles or whatever one sounds interesting to you. A lot of people suggest Persona 3-5, SMT4, and Nocturne as starting off points from what I've seen.

Should I just give up on love and women? Lately every girl Ive liked has been either swooned by someone else or just been generally disinterested in me and I havent even talked to them.

If you like electronic music and haven't heard Justice's "Woman Worldwide" you owe it to yourself to give it a listen.

FULL ALBUM LINK: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLH3lfNtPhUxjYAuUU7fX-USuWI1WkgzAF

it sounds a bit like a modern DAFT PUNK. Won some music awards as well. i give it a 9/10
p. sweet
i cant stress enough how you should listen to the whole album in order, its a bit like a live mix/remix you would hear at a music event than an album with discrete songs.

Each song blends into each other. There are some epic drops that sound even better when they are heard in the context of the greater song and album
>i cant stress enough how you should listen to the whole album in order
Next thing you'll tell me I should unmute the sound so I can hear it, or something crazy like that. :p

I have listened to music before. :)
some people only listen to an individual song
I figured he put the full album playlist link for a reason. But anyway, I like the album. Bought a Franz Ferdinand Justice remix on vinyl the other day.

post braintraining shit
I just started, apparently doing a session of this a day can help you quit drinking. its like a miracle. The way you play is you push the button when the sequence repeats however many times back. So it starts with 1 back, which is easy, you just gotta remember the very last position and letter. Then it goes to 2 back and its a lot harder on your attention span.

I said there are potential uses for it, but the commerical shit is a meme. It's much easier to make games that feel like they're training you than to make games that might actually help (especially if you want people to buy your product). It's a very easy scam to do, and there's a bunch of people doing it. The stuff that would actually work isn't generally commercially viable, so it's restricted to the occasional experimental stuff. Someone might figure out a way to make games they can sell (like Brain Age) but it's a market that's full of grifters. And video games aren't particularly good at preventing senility. Reading books, doing a hobby, exercising, etc - basically anything that stimulates you regularly will help you in that regard. "Brain training" is definitely a meme used to scam people.
Total waste of time. Go learn new languages or something.

learning a language would be nice, but i think id require someone else who knew the language to be effective at learning it and then having some use for it. It'd be nice to be able to read some theory in its original german but I don't know if the investment is worth it.

Similarly with electronic repair, how do I ever gain those skills without having something to practice on. Which starts to get expensive. I think electronics are cheap enough today that its more expensive to buy those repair tools rather than just throwing it out and buying another microwave.

If I had money for a hobby, I would for sure be getting into stuff like drones though. Not trying to be a negative nancy, but I think we're talking two separate things. The attractiveness of brain training is that it's easy and free, at least the one i posted. You can come home, crash on the couch, and do it from your phone, 20 minutes a day and supposedly see results.

still, he's right : if this is just memorizing random shit, might as well learn vocabulary in a new language.

Currently listening to the album Matriarch by Veil of Maya. It's one of those albums thats shit on the first couple of listens but then it starts to grow on you and all of a sudden you're headbanging to the breakdowns.

to THIS:
Egor Letov & GrOb albums I got from rutracker:
literal Nazbol music but it appeals to my aesthetic sensibilities. Mix of Russian folk and punk, low-fi, psychedelic elements, some outstandingly angry vocals at times...
Letov is great.

Also the entire East Euro prog/post-punk scene is worth checking out
Lately it's been all prog rock, industrial and black metal lately for me

Anons, help us make something great. Anonymous Comrade 11/24/2019 (Sun) 17:43:42 No. 2942 [Reply] [Last]

Bunker Media is a project to make a blog and a small podcast/radio show with a background playlist of laborwave and fan-made music based on a Wordpress-based website. We need writers, musicians, editors, translators, programmers, and listeners. We're planning on reporting on news, theory, practice, book discussion, and maybe other stuff besides.

inb4 /pol/ anons start panicking over ZeroNet "leaking their IP addresses" like they did with Tox
which is an idea for a raid
It would be trivial to scare all of the boomers who don't understand p2p off of zeronet and its ilk entirely. Alas that might require setting up zeronet, which was a piece of crap two years ago and doesn't seem to have changed a whole lot since.
Zeronet is fucking garbage.

Just use tor or i2p
