Perhaps it has become your goal to be more charismatic, uninhibited and sociable. Let's have a thread where we ask questions and give advice to improve exactly that.

I've never had issues with this, my main problem is finding the motivation to actual get into social situations, a lot of the time I'd rather not. -have a gf and friends It frees you up to talk without thinking about future plans or commitments. Talking about your friends will also make you seem more normal. If you find that you don't have anything to say, just don't speak, if you try too cope with being awkward you will simply come across more awkward, stand up straight, and listen intently. To not look creepy this requires you to be moderately attractive, cut your hair, exercise, and shower every day, I know some of these are a meme, but if you do these things you can't go wrong. If you want to meet people you need to get a hobby first or something, people appreciate people who are trying new things, it's hard just trying to force friendship for the sake of it. Obviously it's almost impossible with corona, but ignoring that, go join a pottery class, make some cool bowls, don't worry too much and your life will improve. >>7347 I'd say just send them leftist memes and a conversation will form if you send something 'controversial', then you can work from there.
>>7517 >I'd say just send them leftist memes and a conversation will form if you send something 'controversial', then you can work from there. Stalin is controversial but you'll look like a lunatic defending someone like him. Try Castro then bring up how he freed slaves.
>>7347 you have to try to find the points of their arguments that allows them to have their ironic detachment and de-spook them on that shit. they probably have some socially reactionary viewpoint like disliking trans people or some shit which is why they adopt right-wing shit. while working on that, also talk about material issues and ground the idea of the material struggle in a political struggle that goes beyond the bounds of electoralism, unions are a good starting point for that. once he has let go of his reactionary shit and has an interest for material-based political struggles, you've basically done all the work, and from there most people self-radicalize.
>>7521 >Stalin is controversial but you'll look like a lunatic defending someone like him. That's just your superego talking lad, other than liberals people are pretty open to accepting Papa Stalin into their heart Just tell them about the worldly possessions he died with to begin with
>>7529 >worldly possessions he died with to begin with ? You could always go with the "bash the fash" angle that is popular nowadays. I mean he did help kill nazis.

>>7453 season 2: (just checked, pilot doesn't count as a season oops) ultimate lord, biggest aristocrat of them all, if garmadon is a baron then the overlord is the king long ago defeated (first spinjutsu master is the leader of french revolution who beated the king) also intresting how the skeletons help the ninjas out once there master is gone (they reached class consciousness, there not the bad guys) also the snakes help, having learned from there mistakes and became libertarian socialist season 3, technology falls in the hands of the overlord (king) monarchs are more dangerous then ever season 4, literal bourge fast food store owner wants army of libertarians to take over the world season 5, ronin is a literal petty bourge, ghost are lead by old guy who cant let things go, what does that remind you off? (conservatives) season 6, after being kicked off there homeland some ghosts (Zionists) try to invade someone else's land to live there, the ninjas are pro Palestine and beat them season 7, (honestly i grew up around this time, everything else i watched after this point and even a bit before that was pure out of nostalgia) some guy is obsessed with time, ultra conservative, other guy is a neolib who doesn't care but doesn't want to get confrontational so goes along with it all season 8, insane religious cult tries to resurrect to go back to "better time's" season 9, Netflix doesnt have this yet and dont know howto get it, dont know what happens after this point

>>7456 so that is my communist ANALysis on lego ninjago, if anyone has questions, objections or there own interpretation ill be glad to hear it
>>7457 thank you, I appreciate your analysis of ninjago very much. do you think that nya's character is supposed to represent feminist themes? also why does her outfit have the colors of vietcong?
>>7474 that is a striking analysis, the feminist part is probably unironically true since Nya was a damsel in distress stereotype in the pilot but i like how the creators decided to give girls a role model to look up to so Nya is a Vietcong, skyler is a mutualist (she owns her own fast food chain but is still sympathetic to the ninjas) Jay is transhumanist (he also shows interest for technology so makes sense), zane a pacifist that rather uses his head to solve problems then to fight them out, we saw this a few times like instead of fighting the Zionist ghost he played chess with him, Cole is a anarchist and kai obviously is a communist, although later in the show we saw a lot more black, so we can guess that the ninjas became a lot more anarchist as time went on, the ninjas also became lot more independent from sensei wu as the show went on so you see how the ninjas get more and more passionate for a stateless society
>>7484 >owns well because she is sympathetic to the ninjas she probably doesn't own it herself, maybe she does for legal reasons in the capitalist society that ninjago is but its probable she runs it like a co op

>>6938 In English there are two ways of making a th sound. One is called voiced and the other unvoiced. I am not really sure how to explain because I don't think about it much as a native speaker, but I'll try my best to explain how I do it. The unvoiced th is sort of like a low hissing sound, just a passing of air. The voiced th is like the hissing sound, but also has what is sort of like a t or d sound being voiced at the same time. The th sound can be difficult because it is not common to many languages, so there isn't any shame in having some trouble as a foreign speaker. When I was maybe 7 or 8 years old, I had to see a speech therapist in school because I was having trouble making the th sound, so even native speakers have trouble learning it sometimes. This article could help you with some sound examples: https://magoosh.com/toefl/2016/english-tongue-twisters-voiced-and-unvoiced-th/
>>6940 Also, I am pretty sure "other than that" is all voiced.
Anybody else here interested in conlangs?
>>7469 In Esperanto yes

Have some nice copy-pasta If you're not familiar of the story of the soon to be pirate king I'll fill you in. Basically this goofy ass kid named Luffy with crazy famous relatives eats an ass tasting fruit and becomes a rubber man. So this goofy rubber ass motherfucker saves a green haird dude that swings a sword in his GODDAMN MOUTH! This crazy fuck lifts like 20 thousand pound dumb bells and shit for hours. This is possible because they frequently dine on giant goddamn monsters. So they go off and find this chef that looks like 20 year old Gordon Ramsey and together they kick the shit out of this gay ass thug in Golden armor that thinks he's hot shit because he's the toughest guy in the area which is full of pussies. They then find a Pinocchio looking freak with a slingshot and bring him along after beating some faggots in catboy cosplays cause why the fuck not. They also recruit a talking reindeer that's half human cause he also ate an ass tasting fruit. Also he's a doctor cause why the fuck not? They also have a chick with regular tits to start but later on in the series they balloon up by three or four times the size. They beat up this gang dude that would fucking whip garaa from Naruto's ass in a sand fight. Then rubber man takes his bitch who ate another ass fruit that let's her have like however many of a body part she wants so boom wings made of a thousand hands eat that shit curse mark sauske with your two wrinkled bat hands. So after fighting a dude with lighting powers who thinks he's good and saving sand dudes bitch from some creepy ass dude and a bunch of assassin's that also end up eating ass fruits they make friends with a cyborg powered by Cola and perverted skeleton and fight some shadow weilding fat Dracula and a bunch of zombies. Then they save a mermaid slave from over privileged white people. Rubber dude then ends up on an Amazon island and the queen is totally into him because he doesn't give a shit about bitches. Then rubber guys brother dies in a fight between a giant golden dude that ate an ass fruit and about 50 other dudes that ate ass fruits and they got ice powers and light powers and earthquake punches and fucking black holes coming from a fat guy that later eats the earthquake power or some shit. Years later they reunite after being separated and go save more mermaids and then fight dragons and living poison on an island covered in fire and ice. Living poison thing that ate another ass fruit that makes it a lizard fish thing and rubber guy saves some drug addicted giant children from a guy with literal bad gas. Then rubber guy goes to win his dead brother's ass fruit in a roman coliseum style tournament and fight a guy that shoots strings from his fingers and makes this power so strong he almost kills a whole island with it. Then they go a jungle on top of a giant elephant and meet a bunch of athro fap material characters like a super over-sexualized bunny and a dog girl. Bunny girl and a lepord dude go with them to save young Gordon Ramsey from this old ass bitch that eats literal metric tonnes of sweets a day and has an army of warriors that were everyday things imbued with pieces of souls sucked from the people that live there. It's their where a shark man with crazy ass water bending joins them. Now they're in samurai land.

Anyone else growing increasingly disillusioned with art and /lit/ since being redpilled? It all just seems so hollow and pointless, or, at its worst, downright harmful in the way it reflects the ruling class's values and economic relationships. I guess I'm starting to understand how people like Sartre became skeptical of fiction in general.

>>6767 >Anyone else growing increasingly disillusioned with art and /lit/ since being redpilled? Yes i've found the remedy to this is that whenever you want to read something that is fiction or that won't help you learn anything then you should read it in another language that you're weaker in. This way of consooming helps you learn a language while you're doing it so it's not a complete waste of time

>Reposting from a leftypol thread on Berserk: Berserk has flaws, yes, but anything so ambitious is bound to, and none of them come anywhere close to detracting from its well deserved status as a masterpiece. Berserk, though very definitely seinen, does have some small shonen trappings such as Isidro, Schierke, and (perhaps most divisively) Puck, as well as an intermittent stream of puerile jokes, and (I'll get into this later) its edginess, but even if overused at times these serve to expand the range of the story, rather than allowing itself to become too po-faced to feel believable (like FotNS, for instance) without feeling clumsy (like many of FMA's gags). All of the characters evolve repeatedly and massively over the course of the story, except for Griffith, which drives some of the prime themes; about greatness, dependence on or independence from others, having goals versus merely living, the nature of the human psyche, and of human culture through the lens of human imagination. The fights and battles, while they make up the bulk of pagecount, many of the pivotal moments, and are gripping material, are also accessory to development that occurs while characters travel, meditate, and converse. Perhaps equally important to characters and events in the story, is the world and the increasingly strange things that fill it; a land that is at once wild and brutal even before Fantasia or Eclipse, then increasing peeks into the world of the astral are conceptualized and realized on paper by Miura with an imaginative serenity and nightmarishness matched by few artists. As to a decline in quality? That is a common opinion, and one I would agree with to a limited extent, especially post-boat. But (assuming this isn't bait, which it probably is) your placing it at the Golden Age arc is unusual even for cynics, when the most popular arc (both at the time, and in retrospect for most discussions I see today from the middlebrow "Star Wars peaked w/ ep. V" crowd) was Lost Children. As for the expansion of the cast, it was necessary to buttress themes of personal healing and trust for Guts, similarly to what happened in the Golden Age, but with the added point of his learning to build up the people he surrounds himself with to become his equals, and attempt to secure his victories in some lasting way. Now, as to edginess. I named Berserk as an example of something that has depraved content without feeling trashy not because it uses that content for some purpose (which it does), but because it is thematically unapologetic about it. For instance, as visceral and ruthless as some of the content in FMA, Monster, Now and Then Here and There, and Crest of the Stars is, without being trashy/edgy either, they included such content specifically to condemn the behavior that leads to it, pointing toward a future where it can be stopped, as the overall tone of those anime was distinctly, er... Moralfag-y. There's nothing wrong with that, but it is an easier and more appealing type of story to write. Berserk uses extreme content to paint a portrait of characters, situations, and worlds that could not be adequately realized with more restraint, not just to offer moral commentary or judgement on them, but sheerly to portray them for their own sake. In this respect, I would describe Baccano! and Garden of Sinners as similar to Berserk.
>>7387 This isn’t bait dude, I honestly love Berserk, it’s pretty much the only manga/anime I still like (okay, JoJo is great and FMA was great but Berserk sands above). Just wanted a thread to analyze my favorite series.
>>7391 This isn't a response to your OP, its a repost of a lengthy rebuttal against a rather acidic ttack on Berserk a few months ago that I happened to save.
