:Broadsword Edition: >What is HEMA or WMA? Historical European Martial Arts or sometimes Western Martial Arts are attempts at decoding, studying, and practicing the history, art, and fighting of everything from the Medieval Period to Early Modern Combatives. What traditions are you lot studying at the moment? Me? Going through George Silver's "Paradoxes of Defence" to expand my regimental broadsword/sabre repertoire.

Bumping with a video for making ceramic based plates on the cheap. In testing they seem to stop 5.56 lead core with a steel penetrator (m855) surprisingly enough. I knew a guy that survived a stabbing by sticking a couple of plastic cutting boards down the front of his coat, stopped the blade cold and distributed the shock out over his stomach so he barely even had a bruise. He didn't survive depression though :( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DYkl4m3uoOE

>>10769 It's based on a film, but the first season feels so different (and better plotting) from the rest it seems like Nolan & Joy stole the story from someone else.

How did they get Anthony Hopkins on board with this show? Like what made him say yes?

>>11630 IDK but whatever it was he hung around for the second season unannounced until the character returned halfway through. >>9799 >but its not the main focus and is forgotten in later seasons Not true. In the second season it's a mess that goes nowhere, but they do frame the human vs robots conflict in an obvious parallel to class. The third season weirdly is about literal capitalism and conflict between humans and AI-embodied capital (or more accurately AI-embodied humanity vs AI-embodied capital), but since capitalism has evolved into AI-monarchy there's no direct criticism of the present capitalist system and it's more about AI or the alienated logic of capital driving civilization. But that's giving it a lot of credit for a show that by this point has a couple good ideas and doesn't even know how to execute those properly.

The practice and principles of Permaculture are one of the most important tools for not only creating a sustainable socialism, but also for repairing the damage done to the global ecosystem by capitalism, and lessening your individual reliance on the current capitalist system.
Permacultural practice and socialism are two very powerful allies, and learning about permaculture should be necessity for modern socialists and communists.

Horror discussion from a leftist perspective /Leftyhorror/ 08/15/2020 (Sat) 15:52:31 No. 14910 [Reply] [Last]
I've seen only a few other threads about horror on here and they seemed too specific, so I thought I'd make a broader one. How do you feel about the current state of horror media? To me it seems at it's always been in a way; a mixed bag. However I feel like I've noticed this trend and, correct me if you think I'm wrong, a lot of more successful recent horror seems to be more creator-driven than in the past. This is natural I think, as the internet has opened a lot of opportunities for more unique visions and riskier decisions that large studios would otherwise reject. In a strange sort of symbiosis, though, these large studios attempt to acquire these successful creators and even properties for themselves; see the phenomenon of Slenderman for example. Once an entirely community made, solely internet creation has gotten several of his own movies, and has by and large become an 'artifact' of sorts of 2010's-era web. Studios cannibalize these unique properties and, once they've made some modicum of a profit, utterly destroy the integrity of them, leaving communities to look for the next big thing in horror. With that aside, feel free to discuss almost literally anything horror related here; movies, books, ARGs, games, creepypasta (the rare good kind, if you can find any).

How does Leftypol feel about Rick and Morty? Anonymous Comrade 06/08/2020 (Mon) 18:18:10 No. 10321 [Reply] [Last]
Tbh I liked it at first but imo Rick is too much of an unlikable sociopath, Jerry is too pathetic, the show comes off as simultaneously too self-important and too mocking of its fans who overrate it. Nonetheless it's overrated with absolutely autistic fans, and the whole sechzuan debacle, my God....

>>10321 It's the classic "hehe I'm so leftist but I will still cater to fash under the guise of plausible deniability" It was good until season 3, then it was meh, and season 4 is unwatchable garbage

I'm not into them, I find vidya more thrilling. It's more fun to design coasters in Roller Coaster Tycoon than to ride them and get spine or head damage from the bumping, plus sometimes they fail and people fall out and go splat.
