>>10484 I loved it and Alastor was my favorite character followed by the spider. Obviously the drawings are way too complex to keep up a good pace for animating it all, and everything's too colorful and cluttered, so in that regard Helluva Boss was better (except the human kid which looks like something out of a John K cartoon, it's absolutely jarring) >>10503 >White Girl level humor But the creator is a Latina??? >>10646 >I only vaguely know there is supposedly some kinda drama. As far as I could tell, that drama was based on absolutely nothing (like her drawing some internet celebrities that turned out to be "problematic", years ago, or her edgy representation of LGBT characters in hell being seen as "homophobic" somehow) I see no reason not to support her. >>10558 >Is he a tranny? Why does he have breasts? Not trans as far as we know, he's a (gay?) male prostitute. So basically a twink.
>>10657 I remember reading that it won't come out unless some big studio picks it up. But it appears that a new episode may also come out this or next year.
> Re: The creator some nonsense about her "stealing an art style" from someone else. but she was just inspired by another artist before developing her own style. normal creative stuff.
I remember when this first started and the animator Vivzie was excited about starting it.

General Collecting Discussion Thread: Bourgeoisie Edition Anonymous Comrade 10/28/2019 (Mon) 22:56:53 No. 1744 [Reply] [Last]
A thread dedicated to the discussion of collecting stamps, coins, weapons, military awards, etc

Do not buy items from sellers on eBay if they do not have an excellent reputation. On the web-site you can find copies of coins and badges that cost $10 each but people sell them as originals, so you are not safe even when buying cheap items. There are also web 1.0 style forums for professional collectors and dealers, like this one
they are quite good and many people on them have decades of experience in collecting. These forums function like auctions and they are also very useful if you want to find out for free if your jewelry/coin/whatever is fake, or just take a look at people's collections.

Are amusement parks/theme parks just bourgeoisie decadence? Anonymous Comrade 06/28/2020 (Sun) 15:29:34 No. 10940 [Reply] [Last]
I kinda like roller coasters though.
11 posts and 1 image omitted.
There is literally nothing wrong with amusement parks and other entertainment. In communism they will be public projects and free for any to use. The lines will also be shorter because they're not run for profit. When porky runs a park and wants to make money, they inflate ticket prices as much as they can get away with while keeping people away from the rides as much as possible, since that reduces wear and therefore maintenance costs.
The ones that are using pop-cultural brands like Movie Parks or Disneylands are. But there is nothing bourgeois in attaining pleasure by riding a carousel or a rollercoaster? Like, wtf anon?
>>10968 >Roller Coaster Tycoon 2 what's wrong with it
>>11061 Roller Coaster Tycoon 3 is better. You can ride the coasters and everything!
The USSR had them too. Like a factory, who owns the park is important.

>>11022 I'd say currently there is no indication that any machine intelligence is capable of suffering. That may change once we have a generalized AI but rn almost everything people label as ML/AI is just algorithms or ~fancy~ algorithms - not sentient. I maintain a skeptical hope that AI can be more ethical than it's human forbears. at least in a lot of more basal instances of machine intelligence there is a lack of "self" in a neural network - thus primitive neural networks feel more akin to mycelium/ social insects. Related to both the concept of group intelligence and OPs question. I think the Xenogenesis trilogy by Octavia Butler is a good utopic Sci-fi. Her other work is also great - Parable of the Sower is not utopic but well written and sobering for being a little too plausible, her short stories are also fantastic.
>>10933 Left Hand of Darkness is like this - might have been thought provoking for portraying a gender-fluid society at the time but now it falls flat (it's still reasonably enjoyable as a read though). On the other hand I found The Dispossessed to be thought provoking and even inspiring at times.
>>11022 >shoot AI slavery as a kind of limitation of Marxism But the Culture series have the opposite problem with AI support post scarcity. Rather than the Minds being the slave of the races that created them, they live supporting sentient biological life as a type of artificial parasitism similar to barnacles on a blue whale. The problem is the utopia ends there. No uplifting, no change, only stagnation in unlimited digital bliss.
The longer I live, the more impossible these utopias seem.

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?

am i wrong or is music writing uniquely difficult to understand? all i want to know is where to click down the notes in mario paint composer to make a tune, but every intro to music making guide immediately launches into technical language without taking the time to define it properly (let alone trying to dispense with it and dumb things down to a basic level to get the point across.) while building on the assumption your school was sufficiently un-shit that it would give you music lessons. every other subject i've ever encountered, i've at least been able to get the gist of from reading around a bit, finding increasingly dumbed down explanations to suit my needs, but not music creation.
>>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

Lucid Dreaming and Dream Journaling Anonymous Comrade 06/08/2020 (Mon) 11:40:13 No. 10312 [Reply] [Last]
Any anons practice this? How's it going? I was really into LDing when I was younger but drifted away due to the usual suspects of work, school, and alcoholism. Been thinking about buying a dream journal and getting back into it. I still remember most of the basic ideas like reality checks and DILD/WILD, but it's gonna take some work to start putting them back into daily practice.

>>10800 Checked. Yeah I think that's less a dream thing and more of a connection (astral or something) with your closest people. I can feel when my mum's having a night terror she can't wake up from usually, even in my sleep.
>>10312 Sleeping on your back or stomach helps pressure blood flow from the heart to the brain and causes a mild asphyxiatory effect that allows for very detailed dreams. An old /x/ theory is that really realistic dreams are ways for demons to steal your soul energy or something. Personally I think that some more realistic dream events are alternate universe versions of you world and ourselves that we get to visit while in an unclear state of mind.
>>10814 >causes a mild asphyxiatory effect bruh wtf. i aint never sleeping on my back again. you can DIE?
>>10815 Only if you have a really weak heart/lungs. If you're healthy you have nothing to worry about.
>>10312 Put a foam cover over your mattress and sleep on your back without a pillow. Say hello to wild deams.
