Art Deco Anonymous Comrade 06/30/2020 (Tue) 07:19:25 No. 11008 [Reply] [Last]
http://markluskin.blogspot.com/2011/03/from-archive-dark-deco-by-dr-michael.html?m=1 <the Art Deco enthusiast, like the devotee of Expressionism, is by that interest making a statement about the nature of his or her soul. He or she is impatient with surface images, bored with frippery, and drawn by the weird and the outré. Art Deco portrays the human being as one secretly wishes to be: a kind of _Metropolis_ robot[rix] with a dispassionate, cool, and cruel disposition. Art Deco is never warm, cozy, reassuring; it is glacial and impersonal. Those fearful of, dissatisfied with, or contemptuous of human emotions seek in Art Deco a mirror which will show them - and reinforce in them - only the non-human aspects of their souls. Post pics of your favourite pieces of art deco. Pic related: Hoover building, A40 (Western Avenue), London, England.

>>11075 Is art deco the thinking man's brutalism? No. They were both modernistic art movements, but happened at different time periods, in different conditions. Art deco represented luxury mass production at at time of relative affluence,1920's - 1930's. Brutalism came to the fore after the Great Depression, and the destruction of WWII. https://gallerease.com/en/magazine/articles/the-difference-between-art-nouveau-art-deco__6ae04a6d3cbf <In terms of architecture, Art Deco also had a difficult time competing with modern architecture, as epitomised by the work of Le Corbusier and the German Bauhaus movement. <Le Corbusier was a brilliant spokesperson for modern architecture, he considered a house to be no more than "a machine to live in". He also famously delared the decorative arts to be a dying medium. <Le Corbusier's ideas were eventually adopted by architecture schools and the aesthetics of Art Deco were slowly abandoned. After World War II the style had gone completely out of fashion, with certain areas of industrial design remaining as the only exception.

I've been getting more interested in gardening, and I was very disappointed to learn that most of the garden hoses have lead in them or other toxic chemicals that leach into the water, making it unsafe to drink. While searching for a perfectly safe garden hose, (which are nearly impossible to find), I discovered a non-profit website that has a lot of warnings on toxic chemicals in common consumer products. Do inform yourself so you can better protect yourself from hidden sources of pollution. https://www.ecocenter.org/healthy-stuff/

/wt/ watches Anonymous Comrade 07/23/2020 (Thu) 08:44:51 No. 12557 [Reply] [Last]
Not sure who here is into watches, but I really enjoy them as both time-capsules for the aesthetic sensibilities of a period as well as for craftmanship and engineering. picrel is a Soviet made Raketa 'Big Zero' Khrushchev's favourite watch but heres some other interesting examples; > Mao had an Omega pocket watch given by Zhou Enlai > Che was often seen wearing a Rolex Submariner > Fidel also favoured Rolex and would rock up to 3 timezones at a time (typically Havana/Moscow/Washington time) Think it's worth mentioning that Rolex wasn't a luxury brand the way it is now and was more of a tool watch. Anyway, show us what you got or just tell me fuck myself, whichever suits you

>>14758 Like a Lada in a form of a watch. Durable as shit, can be fixed in any bargain bin watch shop, has its own kind of charm, but not very accurate >>14751 I have a weird love for their calculator and satellite watches. Their gimmicks are great. And having a satellite one just to keep the time on your other watches accuracies on point is always a plus.

Got an interesting little French watch for £17 off of ebay, can't seem to find anything out about the brand but I like it, fits my tiny wrist well and looks really really nice in real life Should I relume the hands or not? Its really small so I'm kind of worried about breaking something doing it myself but its hard to justify bringing it to a watch maker's to get it done when I spent so little on the watch initially, the Lume isn't the gold bits, I know old lume sometimes turns that colour, it seems to have been the white bits as there's a green-white strip down the middle of the hands that must have glowed at some point
>>12627 The thing with the censoring of the soldier with multiple watches wasn't anything like good communists don't want nice things or that it was wrong to take wealth off of fascists but rather the obvious implication that he would have stripped them off corpses iirc Agree it was a stupid thing to bother trying to cover up though
>>15706 Is eBay a good place to find cheap watches? I always have suspicions towards it even though hunting the discontinued wave ceptor is so difficult with it.
>>15733 Yeah its pretty good so long as you read carefully, and remember that if somethings seems to good to be true it is You can get loads of good old Soviet/Old microbrand watches through it for very little money for the quality, you can also get way better deals on more mainstream stuff like seiko's etc. if you want to spend more or want one of the older styles There are people selling fakes and garbage though like any other specialist interest so just have a think before buying anything, usually proper listings have high quality photos of everything on the watch including the case back and sometimes the movement or are low volume one or two offs by individuals instead of businesses with lower detail descriptions, low no. of pics from a mass seller or someone in Pakistan having 20 of the 1980's Railwayman Seiko etc. you want but having pics that look like they're scans of a laser jet print out are bad signs Above is for stuff £100 and under, which is nothing in watch land but will get you plenty of really nice, quality stuff new and used, if the price is still above that used I'd go to a specialist reseller first if I had the choice

The Last Internationale? Anonymous Comrade 08/29/2020 (Sat) 17:28:02 No. 15460 [Reply] [Last]
Does anybody remember something like "The Last Internationale" or "The Final Internationale" being posted here? If so, can you post a link to it. I think it was some kind of book made on bunkerchan. The cover looked like pic above. I also posted this on leftypol. If that makes this considered spam I'll delete it.
I recall it. I made some posts in the thread as suggestions for the backstory, but don't know what happened to the project. I think the first thread died and at some point the OP made another one saying that work was still going.
Do you have the link to the new one by any chance?
>>15460 I think that anon is gone. The project was damn fun though. Wish there was any archive of the thread.

Good entertainer, nothing more than that.
>>15368 >Recently, his work eventually inspired the philosophy of "speculative realism"- imagining the world as autonomous from human comprehension- which the influence is obvious. But that idea is not rare at all, you can find it through the history of philosophy. IMO Baudrillard's "objective irony" (objects play with us, not we with them) is a far more interesting spin on the idea than speculative realism. As for fiction you could as well cite Philip Dick as an influence for example.
dont much about lovecraft but i found a 8bit rpg for like 3 dollars on steam called cthulu saves the world and it was amusing for a bit
>>15452 Lovecraft and video games is a pretty good mix in theory, but not many do it well because once you figure out how the game's systems work it loses all of that crushing horror. Take Amnesia for example - it quickly becomes a simple stealth game with resource management. A proper Lovecraft game would constantly tweak its systems just to fuck with your sense of what's going to happen. And/or would have the systems so complex and opaque that the player can never figure out how things really interact with each other. Then horror would be something more than just cheap decoration.
>>15456 i agree 100% but i was talking about a 3 dollar 8 bit rpg that was goofy so i didnt have super high expectations
