Making a leftist youtube channel. Anonymous Comrade 05/27/2020 (Wed) 00:27:56 No. 9948 [Reply] [Last]
ITT we help each other and guide each other on how to conduct a succesful youtube channel and to spread the word of /leftypol/ through breadtube. Theory is now transmitted through youtube let's plays. To make a youtube channel, you need: >An editing software and editing skills. >Knowledge on how to make thumbnails using photoshop (?). >Knowdlege about how to make a script to your videos, how to mantain them interesting for the audience. >Knowdledge to evade youtube's desmonetizations, as it has been proven that they also affect how Youtube interacts with the videos, pretty much shadow banning them. >Knowdledge of the tech market to buy the best microphone for your buck. >Knowledge to record yourself without looking to out of place. >Knowledge to read a script with passion, instead of reading a school essay. Make Leftube Leftypol Again.

Good idea. >>9960 It doesn't matter if your content goes viral. Some people just follow whatever's popular. A lot of people seek out niche or less mainstream content. Particularly, there is demand from communists for decent quality content that attracts your attention, and if your video is interesting and engaging, without being to larpy or dogmatic out the gate, then it can be a good way to persuade sympathisers and political fence sitters. If you want some inspiration, prolekult is a really good cinematic quality channel on youtube, I highly recommend them. What sort of videos are you interested in making?
Bump, I agree
>>9960 I've thought about the algorithms thing and I have an idea. This came to me after theory pleeb and pals tried to do a youtube walkout. I'll explain the logic fully so you can poke any holes in my case here. If you want a short version just read the last paragraph for the actual praxis. Striking as a youtuber doesn't make any sense, because youtube doesn't follow the usual business model of worker making a product and youtube selling it for profit. First of all youtube is not profitable to begin with, so any ad money is just offsetting the loss google takes on the platform. Second of all, political videos tend to get demonetized meaning they are not a source of revenue for youtube that can be withheld by striking. Rather, the relationship between the worker (content creator) and employer (youtube) is very different. When you (small time youtuber) upload content to youtube, youtube actually loses money. This is because it costs them money to host the video files and metadata and stream that to people and they get basically nothing in return for it. What money they do get comes from premium subscriptions and monetized videos, especially the ones from major media companies that put shit like Jimmy Fallon on youtube. That's why the algorithm relentlessly pushes it. Whatever money youtube makes from datamining small-scale users is dwarfed by the cost of streaming all that video. The only reason youtube tolerates this kind of thing and hasn't fully become like hulu/netflix is because they depend on small time viewers to watch the big time videos, and the only reason the viewers are on youtube at all instead of netflix/hulu is because of all the unique user-generated content youtube offers. It's the one thing they have on the competition, so they won't give it up and lose market share, even though the company loses money. So if the relationship is different and striking is pointless, what could actually be a meaningful way of engaging in direct action against youtube? You have to look at the material situation and work from that. Figure out what gets them money and deny them that. Figure out what costs them money and give them more of that. In a nutshell, upload more videos and DO NOT monetize them. If you want to monetize your videos for you, do it externally through another service. And when people ask why they can't superchat or join through youtube premium tell them how youtube takes a cut, and so on, that you are denying them revenue from your labor. Good time to slip in something about socializing/nationalizing youtube too. But again that's still pretty vague and simple. We're also fighting The Algorithm, so let's work that into how we can resist youtube. Youtube doesn't want to show actually relevant videos. Our political opponents like to sometimes false flag videos and take them down. More video on youtube's servers means less money for them at little cost to us. Kill 3 birds with one stone and MIRROR each others' videos. For every youtuber you think should get a boost, reupload a copy of a video you think represents them well and link to their channel in the description. Hell, edit a bumper to the beginning to tell people what you're doing and/or cut it into a highlight reel or trailer. Whatever makes the most sense to you. Just be courteous -- get their permission first and tell them what you're doing. This will: strengthen the algorithmic connection between us by increasing crosslinking, make the content more resilient to censorship, AND finally it will increase the operating costs for youtube. The last one puts the company in a more precarious and vulnerable bargaining position so that workers, the government, entities like Joerg Sprave's youtubers union, and so on will be in a better position to negotiate. Mind you, this only works if it's practiced by a network of people at scale.
>Audio Learn how to mix and get a good mic. I can't tell you how many fags I've heard recording their voices full of background noise, buzzing, low volume, clipping, etc. Get audio software (DAW) (Audacity and Mixcraft are good for starters), get some plugins and learn what compressing, limiting and equalizing are.

>>4777 > I'm just so angry, and unhappy, and hopeless. I wish things were different than this. A gratitude journal would be a good start then, I also recommend cognitive-behavioral therapy like the classic book "Feeling Good: The New Mood Therapy". The world surely sucks from the leftist pov but why pile all the negativity onto your mind? You can reshape your thinking patterns to focus on the best parts of your life. For example, recall when you've been generous with your time, skills, material things. You can think about the impact you've produced: no matter how small in the grand scheme of things, it means something to the people you helped. Maybe you can join some mutual aid group to have more opportunities for the good deeds...

>>9924 Yeah... I guess... It's fucking hard being a leftist in this day and age let alone being a doomer leftist with no job. I don't feel like anything I've contributed to the world really matters, because of course it doesn't - nobody is going to give me a decent life cause of it so what did anything I did really mean? If I can't live then what point is there in trying to do good deeds or improve things for anyone else? I think I'm quite a caring and good natured person on the whole but it rubs me the wrong way to think about bothering to do something for others when I need help and it doesn't come. Why should I stick my neck out when nobody will do it for me? And why should I even try get a job or whatever when I feel so certain it won't make a difference? I just want someone to help me and pull me out of this because I can't do it on my own. And it doesn't matter if 'but you have to, nobody else can fix your life', etc etc, I can't! Don't they understand that? Doesn't anybody care? What if I can't pull myself up and fix it, what then?

I don’t know is that a good idea to post this on that board, but I will try... For some time I thought about the rightness to renounce certain forms of consumption as part of the fight against capitalism. I am able to understand that there are things that cannot be done without buying as new products, generating profit for private entrepreneurs, and they are needed in today's world. However, in my opinion, a consistent socialist should not feed this monster more than necessary. There is no need to buy an iPhone, coffee at Starbucks or a burger at McDonalds. It is worth mentioning some tips on how to survive in this mess. Every socialist should, in some sense be an ascetic. - You don't need a smartphone if you have a laptop. A regular cell phone should be enough, today they have an internet browser installed to check basic things. And running applications from android or Ios is possible through PC emulators. Android applications can be downloaded without a Google account here: -You don't need new clothes. Today's second hand shops have good quality textiles. It is worth mentioning that today's clothes are made of low quality fabrics and fibers that tend to be easily damaged. And the dyes used in them are often harmful to the skin and are poorly primed, which causes the color to wash quickly. It is worth mentioning here that it is good not to wear clothes with visible manufacturer logos. Why should you be an ad as a socialist? It is worth decontaminating them after buying clothes. They can be boiled in a suitable powder or treated with an ozone generator (highly recommended during a pandemic). - Do you furnish the house? Take a look around the local flea market for old furniture. Often, such furniture is made of pure wood (not woodlike materials), and their presence and condition proves their strength. Be careful only on furniture that may have a bark beetle. Removing it with special chemistry is an additional expense. - Food. Look for small food stores, these are usually run by the family, or if you live in the countryside you can get along with local farmers running small farms. It is worth having your own garden. The best idea if you live in a city is to grow your own perennial herbs in pots. - You don't need a car. Today's public transport will take you anywhere you want, cheaper than if you bought fuel every time. However, this issue is very subjective and depends on many other factors. - Many electronics today are worth buying as used, often these antiques work for a very long time. For example, I'm currently using a 20-year-old microwave. The only devices that are not worth investing in are old computers and all Smart electronics due to their collection of quite sensitive data. Many people think that to get rid of the virus from a used computer, it is enough to replace the hard disk. This is a mistake - there are also viruses in the bios. - Use open source software. Many of them are doing great as an alternative to commercial software.

Weird exotic fruit Anonymous Comrade 05/21/2020 (Thu) 02:20:22 No. 9769 [Reply] [Last]
Has anyone trier any unusual fruit? I found the channel of a Yuppie who has traveled thr world eating all kinds of exotic tropic fruit or having it delivered. https://youtube.com/channel/UChsbD6Clp-ZPqKwXJR3V7DQ It makes me want to grow some unusual trees. I'm starting with a miracle berry tree. supposedly once eaten the berry causes sour things to taste sweet for thirty minutes. I am excited because it would allow me to basically give up on having sugar in soda. I could just drink lemonade without sugar, and eat bitter healthy food without suffering. I'm also interested in growing Chico, a cinnamon tasting kind of apple. And there are a ton of sapote I'd like to try eating, and also snake fruit. The truth is most of the food and fruits we eat at super markets are only there because they're easy to produce or shelf long. The best kinds of fruit which are grown for personal taste by farmers are usually not mass producable. That's why we as lefties need to take the time to plant more exotic fruit trees so those trees will always keep giving back. Then we can share the fruits without relying on supermarkets with the same damb flavors. We can literally eat more gourmet food once we fight back against big agriculture and capitalism. There are for instance many kinds of bananas and mangoes with different flavors and textures but you'll never see them, when all the bananas at the market are literally from a tree that has been cloned millions of times. Check out his channel or google "exotic fruit" if you've never left your home and don't know what I'm talking about.

Anybody else seen this show? i think we can all agree that is liberal in nature. However i think the writing, character design, story, world, plot, and everything else kinda makes up for it. What do you guys think about it , is its view of history totally fucking warped?
1 post and 1 image omitted.
>>7995 of course it supports great man theory, one of the spiels the narrator tells you like 4 times literally says "history is the collection of the actions of great men", that's why the show is named that, the title itself is a play on this. However the claim that it supports it and it is reactionary are two different ones, the guy in the other article is right. Mainly, in that the show does seem to imply that history as told by the narrator is warped, and that reinhard is not neccesarily a conservative. mostly, it seems the actual ideology of the show is somewhere between liberal and dengeist (a progresive figure that abolishes the aristocracy makes economic reform, and creates a progressive authoritarian regime in a japanese show just reeks of dengeist to me). What i think would be more interesting to think about is this, if the show implies the narrator is telling you his version, then from that version, what would be the actual story of the world? now that's a real story worthy of being written
>>7994 I think is great. It's fun to watch something with this kind of clear authorial vision, even if it is wrongheaded. Will warmly recommend the remake also, which looks real crisp and adds a bit of cheese to soften the self-serious nature. And still a better love story than Twilight, as they say.
>>7995 >Although it isn't necessarily related, the fact that what appears to be a semi-feudal autocracy had coexisted with a bourgeois democracy for ~150 years is telling I don't remember much about the show but this could easily be due to the scale of space
>>7995 Having given it some thought I have to side with the "it's anti GMT"-camp. I think we are underestimating the extent to which this show is self-conscious. Note for example how the supposedly "brilliant" stratagems that the various characters use to win this or that battle are typically rather banal. You can put this away as lazy writing - the character is brilliant for the purpose of the story, but it is told in stead of shown. However I started to notice how often, almost every time, there is always some character in the other camp who anticipates what is to come, points it out to the superiors, and is shot down. So clearly we are not dealing with uniquely genius insights. Moreover the outcome of the battles is in almost all cases over-determined by the preceding circumstances. The most obvious case being the invasion of the Empire by the FPA really on - with no clear plan beyond "we'll be greeted as liberators" their defeat was assured before the invasion started, no genius opponents needed. Another case is the noble coalition, which falters more to its own internal tensions and weaknesses (factionalism and ill discipline mostly) than to a particularly genius approach by Reinhardt and company. The characters who are portrayed as the brilliant great men, then, are so portrayed not because they are shown to be brilliant great men, but because that status is useful for other actors behind them - which is made explicit several times. Yang is initially very useful as a hero to Trunicht, while Reinhardt is the linchpin of the coalition of officers around him, threatening to fracture as soon as he suffers a breakdown for a couple of days. In his case it is Oberstein, arguably the real brains of the operation, who maintains him as figurehead. History in the show is seen to be made through larger forces that determine the outcome of things, the characters can only be the vessel for larger forces, influencing what is already slated to happen at the margins. Which fits well with Yang - the historian - 's signature move, making the best of a bad situation.
Maybe the Narrator indulges in GMT but I can't really say the same for the author. He did (albeit very clumsy and barely) mention that Imperials vastly outnumbered the Alliance in men and technology, and also mentioned the Alliance's devastated economy in the constant. Yang was right to suggest a ceasefire or peace treaty as the only way for the Alliance to win the war against the Imperial in the long term. It is still pretty bullshit how Reinhard can turn around social welfare and the economy of the Empire in just a few years though. >>9550 >how the supposedly "brilliant" stratagems that the various characters use to win this or that battle are typically rather banal. You can put this away as lazy writing - the character is brilliant for the purpose of the story, but it is told in stead of shown Tbf most of Yang's tactics and strategies are directly copied from great maneuvers in history. IIRC His last real fight against the Empire before his assassination is literally Hannibal's Battle of Cannae in Space.

>>6646 I think a better analogy is horses, both for the historical phasing out that occurred (and mostly just because horses suck - with ice you're just gonna not be able to get new cars so you'd be stuck with aging classics, which I have absolutely no problem with). And then whenever anyone does go out with their horses they're off racing or going on trails, which I also have absolutely no problem with. Id also imagine as ice becomes more and more rare people with also stop giving a fuck about noise, safety, and even pollution, although that would probably be very far out.

"Is it leftist" is the wrong question. You should be looking for ways to either criticize it for being bourgeois propaganda or détourning it as commie propaganda. What show?
>>9092 This is a mexican show right? I have seen that dude in right appear in memes
>>9104 >>9135 El Chavo it was a Mexican TV show. I remember my Grandfather always watching it when I was with it, especially in my younger years but was never intrested in it because it wasn't a cartoon.
>>9092 El Chavo del 8. Is it leftist? No, but shows in a comedic light the lifes of various families in a housing bloc owned by "Don Barriga" (Mr. Tummy) and the poverty of Chavo, an orphan who, having nowhere to live, lives in a barrel in this bloc. He is friend with Chilindrina (the daughter of a unemployed and widowed worker, Don Ramon) and Quico (the conceited son of the singlemother owner of a low class restaurant, Doña Florinda-idk how you gringos call menus-). Also there is Teacher Jirafales, who is couting Doña Florinda, La bruja del 61 (a spinster who lives in the 61 apartment who has a crush in Don Ramon), and Ñoño (son of Don Barriga and a little less conceited than Quico, acted by the same actor that plays Don Barriga) The show was aired in Televisa, a Close (this level of close) tv station to the PRI goverment (who wasn't so leftist) and by some is considered a piece of opium to the masses, and by other leftist a portrayal of a working class neighborhood (with the problems and class strugles in it). It is pretty fun indeed. IT still airs in my country in the prime TV stations.
No lmao, it isn't leftist. I'd say it doesn't have a lot of politics in it. Fairly neutral, imo. I used to love it as a child but my family and I haven't watched it in ages, so I haven't been thinking a lot about it and don't have as many fond memories of it anymore. Sometimes thinking about it makes me very sad for some reason (both the show itself and the circumstances around its cast and production). Nowadays I don't know what to think of it. It's definitely not leftist and it was made under a dictatorship, practically. Those were very hard times for Mexican politics. Everybody and their grandma, literally, watched this stuff, so it's obvious that it was used as a way to keep Mexicans distracted through some emotional manipulation (this sitcom got VERY melodramatic in many episodes). And these days slapstick comedy has sort of lost its appeal to me. The cult of nostalgia around this show is also a bit too strong (it's massively popular in all of Latin America but especially in Mexico and perhaps even more in Brazil, where it's known as Chaves). But I do like El Chapulín Colorado, even though I haven't watched it recently either. Probably because the protagonists aren't kids and the stories aren't sad like in El Chavo. A bit of trivia. The creator of most of these characters, Roberto Gómez Bolaños "Chespirito" (a corruption of the diminutive form of "Shakespeare") had many other comedy sketches where he played the protagonist. Virtually every single one of them, along with some other characters, had a name that started with Ch: El Chavo, el Chapulín Colorado, Dr. Chapatín, el Chómpiras, el Chanfle, Chaparrón Bonaparte, la Chimoltrufia, la Chilindrina (who was apparently created by the actress that played her, which caused massive drama between her and Chespirito)... I wonder if it has anything to do with him being a Chilango (from Mexico City).

How to become much faster at reading, while also maintaining acceptable comprehension? I read 240 WPM which is about average. I have so much to read, I won't get through it all if I stay a readlet. Watched some YouTube videos and people are saying many of the speed reading techniques are bullshit. Like extending your peripheral vision to read more words simultaneously in a broad stroke is apparently not possible. Not vocalizing the words you read apparently significantly reduces comprehension. Another technique is to selectively skim some parts you deem to be less important while assuming you will still understand the gist of what has been written when you read the rest, which is kind of a sleazy way of "reading" faster. I literally want to read the entire text FASTER. The fuck do I do here fellow niggas?

Speed reading doesn't really exist. What exists is 1. some people read a bit faster than others and 2. skipping words. Number 2 is the thing that makes a "spead reader". Highly redundant writing is good for "spead reading", math papers not so much. >>9082 Multitasking doesn't really exist, aside from repetitive simple movements.

And if you call them out on it they'll say you're a newfag and it's imageboard culture, even though you've been using imageboards since before /pol/ or internet SJWs even existed. It's like an actual unironic cancer that spreads everywhere. But the sad reality is that there is simply no place for an imageboard oldfag to go anymore, everything has been politicized and turned into shit, and smaller boards have ceased to exist.
>>7558 >if you are like me and frequented it for spooky stories it's no longer the place for you yeah, no joke all that kind of user generated content has moved to places like reddit. but mention this and you get a revised history about how 4chan was always this shit and only leftist cucks say it was possible to post apolitically.
>>7558 >there is simply no place for an imageboard oldfag to go anymore I stopped going on 4chan in 2016 and never really frequented anything else so I'm over it by now. But goddamn it is a sad state of affairs imageboards are in.

I haven't visited 4chan in months and I haven't been a regular in years. The hobby boards are great for gathering recommendations, tools, sources, downloads, translations, and so on and so on, but after you've gotten what you were looking for, I don't see the point in going back there, except maybe to discuss some of your favorite media once or twice, because then it's all the same opinions over and over. Last time I was a regular I took part in a couple of /trash/ generals (comfier and bloggier than their original incarnations in their respective boards, contains cancer and the native furries/ERPers won't mess with your threads, but non-native generals are exceptionally prone to raids and spamming by individual schizos and trolls due to /trash/'s nature, which can spoil the experience and ruin a community beyond repair). Every two months or so I go on /adv/ to vent about some trivial shit nobody even reads. I don't feel the need to visit any of the hobby boards (or the site) at all anymore because it's exhausting and reading a bunch of threads about cartoons or anime or games I'm not even consuming is pointless, threads that have barely any discussion other than anti-SJW or e-celeb bait and porn/loli/waifuposting (mostly /v/ and /co/). The visible clash between newfags and bitter oldfags only makes things worse (which I find amusing tbh). Plus, I just hate how every subset of users within each big board feels superior to one another, like a hierarchy; in /a/ for example, there's shonen fans at the bottom, and within this group there are fans of different shonen series, the worst and most unapologetic probably being the DBZ autists. Then there's moe fans, "MANime" fags, hipsters, etc. Most of the /a/ userbase is incredibly elitist but lack any self-awareness; in reality they're all garbage who want everyone to have fun only according to their own standard, which is "everything is shit", so nobody must enjoy anything. And this is supposed to be the "best" out of the boards I've mentioned. Everyone hates each other in the biggest boards and that naturally gets tiring after years of only visiting that site. >>6903 >I do however go on hispachan and replace the "o" or "a" at the end of Spanish words that refer to people with "e" example amigos / amigas would change to amiges kek, based although the unironic forced use of the gender neutral "e" or "x" as in "latinx" still makes me cringe. Hmm, maybe you should try using the "x" next time and see what happens.
>>6897 > Always the same things over and over again like a broken record. I've noticed it on other boards too. It all becomes so boring.
