>how do you even measure the intellectual level of movies or do you just 'feel' like they are? You measure by how they treat the viewer. As an example, in Captain Marvel there is a scene where she's breaking out of her chains. If the writer thinks the viewer is a retard, they'll add a shot of a side character going "She's breaking out!", which is exactly what they did. For a movie that expects its viewer to be moderately intelligent they'll assume the viewer can pick up on visual clues, like in Alita: Battle Angel (which doesn't require you to be a genius but you'll miss some stuff if you're not paying attention). This has to do with the changing nature of the film business because of competition from streaming. The number of films released by major studios is down, as are the prospects of mid-budget films https://www.the-numbers.com/market/ https://www.vanityfair.com/hollywood/2019/05/is-the-mid-budget-movie-an-endangered-species The studios are competing by betting on epic big budget films, much as they did in the sixties in their first battle with television. They also have the advantage of playing about as well everywhere in the world. So, when you're spending 200 million on a single film, your focus is going to be on making sure the investment pays off, not innovation or art. That's why nearly all big movies are adaptations, reboots or sequels and why they're all so samey. The Marvel films in particular have hit upon a very efficient formula. Modern information technology has allowed media companies to narrow down the most safe and profitable content in media produced today. They almost always have generic plots. And the epic ending is usually either battling thousands of faceless drones or fighting a villain who monologues every time the fight is about to transition, the serious hero says something serious, the jokey hero says a quip, then they generically fight some more, then something something sky beam does shit, the villain gets arrogant because the plan is working, then the hero says the final quip and the villain makes an “oh shit” face then dies. Avengers, Age of Ultron, Infinity War, Thor Ragnarok, both Guardian of the Galaxy movies, Endgame and Black Panther to name just a few marvel movies all do this. The reason this slides and is liked is because they don't know nor understand alternatives of the past or future. People have no hope so they look up to mythological tales set in modern era and the destruction takes place which one might enjoy in a nihilistic way. It very much reflects many more simple hero-stories of Greek Mythology, however lacking the counterbalances in the form of tales of Oedipus, Orpheus and Phersephone, the Illiad and Hercules' labours. These criticized many aspects of over-powered Greek heroes like Theseus, who just win at everything and are smarter and stronger than anyone they meet. This reflects Adorno's laments on cultural decay and machinization, in his theory of social spectacle and the resulting industry. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M-m_7G31yh4

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.

asceticism Anonymous Comrade 09/07/2020 (Mon) 19:16:44 No. 15837 [Reply] [Last]
Let's discuss asceticism.I am learning to embrace miserabilism ,obscurity,lumpen-ness (however i stay far away from obscenity) i was once,online,said to have CRAWLED out of a hole. I take revel and delight in that,and im honestly thinknig of digging a hole to live in in my backyard. My diet would be potatoes,grown in my own garden,and rain water/dew. my cloth would be a pant made of cheap fabric by myself,and my sleep,limited.

1) There is a Permaculture thread 2) This kind of depressive stuff is >>>/dead/ content
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). Now for regular situations I limit myself to jerking off at most 4 times a week, though I've found that even with quarantine it's not been that difficult. 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. Though I find that jerking off every two days is optimal pleasure-wise. If less than that I'm not maximally horny yet. And if more than that I'm already gettng used to not jerking off and the urge isn't so strong anymore.
>>16403 I'm not OP but why is /dead/ a "secret" board?

>>16234 >first pic Is that the supposed spherical tomb for newton? That looks really dumb and expensive for no reason at all.
>>16244 Well Boullee was an enlightenment man, and Sir Isaac was regarded as a genuinely legendary scientist by the enlightenment thinkers. It was intended a monument to enlightenment thought itself for one, but too specifically to Newton's contributions to the field of the physics, hence its spherical shape. >really dumb and expensive for no reason at all As it goes for nearly every unbuilt architectural marvel. A tomb may be more useless than the Palace of the Soviets, but the Palace too is needlessly excessive when multiple smaller scale buildings can not only do the job just as well, but better. (And in fact did do so, since the Palace wasn't built and the Soviets still handled governmental functions fine with other less excessive buildings)
>>16253 b-but big buildings look cooler
>>16346 For all the talk of excessiveness, I can't actually disagree. BEEG buildings are just so cool, even if they suck in every sense of engineering. >>16350 I'd like to think that if the tower got built, it would afford a limitless supply of Spiral energy to the Soviets and enable them to best the bourgeoisie with shear willpower. The building itself sitting inside the steel spiral monument was actually intended to spin. Three different layers (each of multiple floors) would spin at different rates, 1 day, 1 month, and 1 year: permanent revolution.
