WHO /BRAINTRAIN/ HERE?

post braintraining shit
https://www.brainturk.com/dual-n-back
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.

Egor Letov & GrOb albums I got from rutracker:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QtPCTs7igh8
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2ift8T7eVEo
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...
>>2926
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

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.

What do you think about ZeroNet?

It's basically P2P web. Have great potential, also there is an imageboard there:

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.

Bunkerchan Movie Night n1x ##WQj+IL 05/17/2016 (Tue) 04:50:35 No. 42 [Reply] [Last]
So now that we finally have a general entertainment board...

People have expressed interest before in doing a Bunkerchan movie night. This is a thread to discuss that and to post any planned streams (Hoxha might want to sticky this).

So first of all: I'm not going to stream shit unless people show up. That being said, I can't stream every week at a time that works for everyone even if I wanted to, so if anyone other than me is able to stream and willing to, you should post here.

I'm also wondering what sorts of things people would want to watch. People have in the past talked about doing lefty themed movies and documentaries, but I think that'd be kind of limiting if it was all we streamed.

I'm all for this, but we really need to figure out what types of movies we're going to watch.
The Korean movie Parasite fucking sucked and it was so obvious the director was middle class
>>2788
I don't think we should watch anything too heavy, some light and fun stuff, maybe leftism related ofc
>>2813
finally someone agrees. I had to turn it off when the family of genius conmen went full retard and hung around in the house while the family was on vacation. too fucking stupid... everyone in it acted like a cartoon.
There's a Bunker Media project going on RN, maybe we could show the movies there.

anyone want to talk about the new Watchmen? I've been pleasantly surprised so far by lindelof. The recurring motifs are translated well into a series, its already a better adaptation of the original work than snyders.
No, it's radical-liberal idpol garbage of the worst kind.

Spooky movies for Samhain! Satan-kun 10/31/2019 (Thu) 16:21:57 No. 2330 [Reply] [Last]
Happy halloween fellas (not for me because i'm not doing anything particularly fun or exciting today). I came up with a list of movies you might wanna watch today. Suggested by other people of course.
I haven't seen most of these movies in this list, but these are supposed to be good spooky movies/documentaries.
Documentaries:
Wild wild country
Going Clear
Jesus Camp (i saw this one, it's pretty good)
Jonestown
Holy Hell
Kentucky Teenage Vampires https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aWclRSulGFQ[Embed]
The Keepers
We Need To Talk About Kevin

Movies:
The Hostel - I saw it, it didn't scare me much. It might appeal to other people though. It's more of a "getting kidnapped and raped a brutally murdered" kind of thing.
Angel Heart
The Fourth Kind - Only saw it partially, i think it maybe had some spooky scenes but it was years ago and i need to rewatch.
Noroi The Curse - I actually saw the full thing. I highly recommend it, subbed of course because dubbed japanese entertainment loses the emotion in the voice.
La Voyage Dans La Lun
The Demonic Tapes (british horror film)
Ju-on the grudge (the japanese version) - I saw this one too, but don't remember enough to tell you how good it was.
Shutter
Antichrist (the film)
Annihilation ( was interested in it a few months ago, it had some legit unsettling shit in it, but i can't see how it'd be a full on horror thing since some of it seems too artsy)
Audition
A Tale of Two Sisters
The Thing (the original not the prequel)
The Exorcist (maybe that's a normie movie, i don't know, i haven't seen it but it's gotten a lot of praise over the years)

Aside from that list you should watch the poughkeepsie tapes. It's pretty good. Also give REC a try. Not Quarantine though, REC. Also the original blair witch project.
That's all i got.

Whelp I know what I'm doing next weekend.
The Green Room is a good movie that focuses on an anarkiddie band that decides to play a concert for neonazis in order to get some money. When trying to leave they accidentally witness a murder and they end up being forced to fight for their lives since the fashies don't want them reporting shit to the police.

This is probably the one movie you want your fellow anti-gun comrades to see.

Magic the gathering General. Anonymous Comrade 10/24/2019 (Thu) 20:58:55 No. 1405 [Reply] [Last]
Well, throne of eldraine dropped and, I have to say, this is probably one of the most impressive sets i've seen come from wizards in a while.

Other than the push on all the whales and timmies there's some good things in this; genuinely unique stuff.

The alternative art/border cards really do look amazing.

But let's get down to business:

Right now, with the current format and meta change I would say that blue red and green on really on top right now. Blue has some great control and red/green has just been astoundingly fast. I have been hitting for almost ten by turn 3-4. Red was also blessed with some control in the form of Opportunistic dragon.

You throw some pelt collectors in and some Bonecrusher Giants and you are looking at some serious threats being placed on the field.

Right now I am running a Red/Green beat down deck. It's not optimized, but, it is running smoothly.

Anyone else getting into standard right now? What are some of your thoughts and opinions?/Strategies?
4 posts and 1 image omitted.
>>1440
Well that is really up to you to decide. Unlike yugio magic actually has a mana system for resources. Sometimes things tend to get out of control with the meta, but, nothing that cannot ever really be reigned back in. (We just banned a serious problem in the standard format.)

But ultimately that is something only you can answer; probably through game play.
>>1440
>>1407
The mana system can be incredibly annoying if you dont draw the optimal amount of land. For that reason alone you should probably avoid magic. Gwent was a pretty good card game a few seasons ago, but they radically changed the game several times and im not up to date anymore. Its free to play, cards are easy to grind, art is amazing and the gameplay is (probably) alright.
>>1489
Imagine being such a brainlet you can't adequately produce a consistent ammount of Mana.

Brains play magic.
Brainlets play other shit.
>>1489
Pretty sure you're just terrible at deck building.
Won $125 on saturday in a modern tournament, makes my earnings from magic a couple hundred this month. Green is wildly op right now, oko is the best walker in the game.
They just banned veil of summer in pioneer, and hopefully it follows that they will ban it in other formats soon. Card is way to good.

I kind of hate how much time and money I put into something so bougie as playing magic, but I fucking love the gameplay.
