Music Theory Anonymous Comrade 03/26/2020 (Thu) 15:55:48 No. 7411 [Reply] [Last]
I want to understand how you're supposed to play songs on piano. From what I've seen so far, you play the melody with one hand and with the other hand you play the chords, either as full chords or arpeggios. But how do you know which chords you have to play to fit a certain melody? I already know a bit of music theory so I tried figuring it out on my own. I looked up Katyusha on piano to see which chords are played. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5gMx_Yiut9w The song is in D minor, and they play the chords in this order: Dmin x3 Amaj 2nd inversion x4 (Db E A) Dmin x 2 Fmaj 1st inv. (C F A) Gmin 1st inv. (D G Bb) Dmin, Gmin 1st inv. , Dmin, Amaj inv. , Dmin. I assume that some chords are inverted so that the transition between them is smoother. They play the same melody on the right hand side throughout the video, but in the beginning they only play the root notes of the chords with their left hand, after that they play the chords in different ways, and then they play the complete triads. And this is my question, how do you know which chord progression fits over a melody?

>>7719 Nah it's the opposite. Music theory is really quite simple compared to something like math or physics. If they took the time to define terms then everyone would get it and we can't have that. There's gatekeeping in every field but the fact that music theory is really so easy makes it particularly necessary. What technical language are you having a hard time undertstanding? Intervals are the concept you really need to know, because everything else is ultimately based on them. Kinda like what f=ma is to Newtonian physics.
>>7411 > I guess because when a G is played in the melody over the Amaj it forms an Amaj7 which creates more tension. Yes, in minor keys the minor v chord is often made into a major dominant V so there's a leading tone to the resolving root chord. There's a dissonant tritone interval between the 3rd and 7th notes in the major dominant7 chord, which sounds good when resolved. The minor 7th chord doesn't have the same quality of sounding like the end of a phrase, you'd use it for a middle section that doesn't move anywhere. Prince actually called it the Chicken Grease chord because of its slippery, unresolving quality, as used in the D'Angelo funk song of the same name

Honestly a good example of musical practise routines being used IRL is Carnival of the Animals, as the entire suit builds up piece by peace with relatively simple patterns that combine into a wonderful cacophony.
Anyone practice Hanon? If not, I highly recommend it for piano players
>>7483 unironically this, just experiment with different chords/progressions until you find something that sounds good. Applying theory is a decent starting point, but it's not going make music for you.

>>15831 A prodrug is a drug that metabolizes into the drug which it is a prodrug to. No, you cannot get a prescription for it, and it is potentially illegal under the analog act, although available on the RC market.
>>15848 MDMA can't be more toxic than alcohol, I'd imagine. I enjoy drinking heavily every weekend if possible. I'd expect MDMA being an improvement over that. I've read that ketamine produces dissosciation and depersonalization. Why would these be nice in the context of a club? Seems like a numbing experience and detachment from the context. I'd again recommend everyone that if they have the means to do so, extract your own DMT or buy it, and stick it in a e-vape. It is a real chill experience with incredible visuals. Lasts like 30 minutes from baseline to baseline.

>Alcohol When you learn your limits and how to use responsibly, it can be very fun. Can be pretty habit forming for some people though. >Tobacco Complete waste of time. You get a nice 10 minute head rush the first time you do it. And then you keep smoking it, hoping you get that same head rush again. Have no idea why so many people smoke cigarettes. Terrible for you. >Coffee Great way to start your day. One of the safest drugs you can take. Lifts your mood, improves focus, gives you energy, speeds up your metabolism, reduces your risks of certain types of cancer, and can even be good for your hearth health. Very cheap, very difficult to overdose on, but it is habit forming. >Weed Used to smoke a lot of pot back when I was a teenager. Don't do it nearly as much as I used to though. Great way to relax after a hard day of work. Superior alternative to alcohol since its not habit forming, extremely safe, and you cannot die of an overdose. Only drawback is that it shows up most commonly in drug tests. >Kratom At low doses, has a mild stimulating effect. At high doses, has a sedating effect similar to that of painkillers. Satisfies the opoid receptor without being an opiod. Will give you some good clarity and euphoria at the right dose. Very cheap, very safe, but high addiction potential. >K2 / spice / synthetic weed Shitty red-headed stepchild alternative to marijuana. Stick with pot. This bullshit isn't fun to do at all. >Magic Mushrooms / psilocybin Fun stuff. Makes you feel really weird and uncomfortable. Has therapeutic properties for those with mental health issues at lower doses. At high doses you get visuals. Not habit forming. Very safe. Make sure you're in the right environment for it. >4 ho met Very similar body high to magic mushrooms, with stronger visuals. Can be a lotta fun in the right environment. >LSD

TENET Anonymous Comrade 09/21/2020 (Mon) 12:45:34 No. 16442 [Reply] [Last]
Spoilers obviously Was this Nolan's most reactionary film yet? The message of the film appears to be that future generations are all entitled brats who want to destroy the world to save themselves. The past should be preserved quite literally in this case at the expense of the future, who are all going to die of global warming. I think the future generations are right in this case. Fuck the boomers, global warming was their fault, and they would not hesitate to kill everyone before to save themselves so why should they? Seemed like some references to the whole 'confederate statue' thing as well. This is the same guy who defended torture and mass surveillance. Elizabeth Debicki was hot as always though. Worth watching the movie just for her. That whole subplot was weird though, she didn't want to leave her abusive husband because he'd report her for art forgery? The level of threat there was not believable enough. The movie as a movie is entertaining enough to watch at least once. The gimmick is enough to hold it up. I think everyone complaining that the sound mixing was too shit to hear anything is too focused on trying to understand something that's mostly an excuse for neat visual set pieces. That said, the climax of the film in that final battle was also the weakest part of the movie. It was difficult to tell who was shooting who and it looked like a scene out of inception. Speaking of which I have trouble ranking this above or below inception. Inception had a stronger emotional core, Cobb was more of a character than "The Protagonist" but on the flipside(hah), Inception was still suffering from some halfway bullshit in terms of pacing. Rewatching that movie, it can drag heavily when they do exposition for an entire scene. In Tenet, Nolan and his editors seem to have perfected a style where every scene doesn't drag even though it can be exposition heavy. This can be to a fault – the already mentioned plot point that future generations are going to invert the entire flow of time in a last ditch attempt to escape the end of the world due to climate change – is something that in any other movie would be treated as a major revelation. You'd have a scene of the main characters reacting to the news and thinking through the implications. The pacing in this movie is so scene-to-scene though that it's only explored once at the very end by the antagonist. Nolan leaves a lot of meat on the bone. Which again, is why everyone trying to nitpick about the details of the inverted time mechanics, or complaining about the sound mixing, is missing the point. It's mostly an excuse for a cinematic ride, turn your brain off. When the movie's over and you turn it back on, you'll realize the zoomers did nothing wrong. If the boomer conception of the past and traditions have to be destroyed to ensure the future, so be it.
I'm more interested how there don't seem to be any bootleged cinema cammed versions of it floating around. Also what the fuck is wrong with everyone involved to make it a cinema exclusive? And why did Nolan even want it that way? Is this some of that Lynchian "u cant watch muh film on da phone >:(" showing its head?
>>16464 It's typical Nolan behavior that usually gets curbed by studio executives and producers
>>16442 >complaining about the sound mixing I still remember when Interstellar, a movie where you can't even make out what characters are saying a third of the time because the music is so damn loud, was nominated for an oscar in Best Sound Mixing.
>>16469 Literally the only good thing about Interstellar was the time-dilation plot-point. Everything else was shit.

This is the capeshit film thread Discuss capeshit I'll admit I hate Marvel films, first off they're some of the glowies films out there, every single one fellates the Pentagon. The plots are almost all identical, filled with general pro-porky propaganda. The jokes are overdone and stale, literally Adam Sandler humor. The CIA is shit for such expensive productions. The characters are getting stale. Fuck these movies, death of cinema shit piles.

>>16372 Ennis is an unironic military fag who look at the shitshow of the industrial complex and say that it's a good thing. His recent punisher is another mindless Soviet bashing tirade.

>>16416 >Also how long until he attacks and beats Colossus with hax and plot? He already did it. This is the same wanktastic tard that wrote Punisher Kills the Marvel Universe.

Cats Anonymous Comrade 06/28/2020 (Sun) 06:19:33 No. 10931 [Reply] [Last]
Do you think cats can pass the mirror test? My cats seem self aware, but aren't interested in mirrors. They also have zero understanding of computer screens, and keep crawling behind speakers looking for the source when you play recorded cat meows, no matter how many times you do it. I really wish I could communicate enough with animals to explain how technology works sometimes, or how certain things are dangerous to them. It would be more fun if I could teach cats about light switches, or if we could design VR video headsets with games that cats would like to play.

Feline Posadism when? >>16440 People don't like strays much apparently so good work. It keeps them from hunting rabbits and the like. My neighbors didn't feed their cat enough and it would literally hunt and disembowel adult Cottontails.
>>16436 It would depend on whether or not increased intelligence gave the cats access to a higher amount of calories or some eqluivalent to make it worth it. Domesticated cats don't really want for any biological needs so higher intelligence would probably not help them very much (they have us for that after all). It might end up factoring into sexual selection, which is hypothesized to have played a role in the evolution of human intelligence in the first place. That's a really chaotic and arbitrary thing though, and to keep it going you'd just as much need cats to be aroused by displays of intelligence. That may actually be easier to engineer than intelligence itself though.
>>16444 No rabbits here and feeding the cats regularly prevents them from raiding garbage cans and making a mess. They still kill mices though, I once found some huge dead mouse and the funniest thing is that they didn't even eat it, they just left it for everyone to see. I wish I could do more, mostly for the kittens, but eh.
>>16440 Strays can be complete assholes sometimes but they’re always cute. I often try to help them when they abandons their own young. Kinda annoying because the kittens are usually really weak and their survival chance is not high at all. I’ve been thinking of buying a heater to save more.

>>16239 We had our own '80s Satanic panic in Blighty, summarised in this review by Wildcat journal in' 91: http://wildcat.international/w15-moral-panics.html Meanwhile... children *were* being abused by people in positions of power, but they weren't part of a Satanic underground. Jimmy Savile, broadcaster and friend of Prince Charles, was helped by mates in the police: <for more than 20 years, serving and retired police officers had been among those attending Savile's so-called Friday Morning Club meetings at his penthouse flat. Dan Davis, "In Plain Sight: The Life and Lies of Jimmy Savile" From the biography it seems he was a macabre character, liked to work in a hospice when he was a kid to be around the dying, wore a ring made from an eyeball stolen from a mortuary, and was maybe even a necrophiliac. But there's nothing in the book about him being a Satanist, or involved in occult groups. Cyril Smith, the Liberal MP was protected as well. But it wasn't as part of a Satanic network. He was allowed to get away with it because he was in a position of power: <There has clearly been a significant problem with deference towards people of public prominence, from the Whips’ offices to the police and prosecutors, although the investigation found no evidence of an organised paedophile network at the heart of government. https://aboutmanchester.co.uk/cyril-smith-was-protected-from-prosecution-in-a-number-of-ways-says-child-sexual-abuse-inquiry/ If you're already powerful and can get away with crimes, why would you need Satanism?

People who are obsessed with this high level pedophile shit are just ragging narcissists, 99% of all pedophilia happens in you neighborhood and is done by your neighbors.

I was once really into asceticism, or more like stoicism and ancient monasticism. But I came to realization, which was already theoretically obvious to me from the start, that this is just a giant cope for being politically impotent, for the world being shit. The self in this case functions as a safe space into which you retreat from the dystopia in which you actually live. So instead I became a weight-lifting alcoholic shitposter.
Because of a September meme about not fapping (essentially the No Nut November of Latin American, though I'll partake in NNN too) its been the longest since I've not masturbated (21 days).

Have any of you gone a long time without jacking off? How did it affect you?
>>16430 I've tried and there was no effect, neither on psyche/motivation/etc nor on pleasure when jerking off for the first time after.

And if more than that I'm already gettng used to not jerking off and the urge isn't so strong anymore.
