Alhambulillah. Is the populace finally awakening to the superiority of piracy?


Streaming companies are making the exact same mistakes major cable companies made: To much saturation in the market with to many options and all behind a massive expensive walled garden of price.

So yeah, people are turning to piracy.


kek sometimes i forget how retarded porkies can be

Well, its not entirely that. Its note so that in their myopic race for profits they fail to realize the bigger picture and thus you end up with everyone of them competition with one another and that's how you get to the point where its thousands of dollars just to watch the things you want lol


Wow, I haven’t seen E-Rotic referenced in years.

bumping my map from last summer but whatever, it's had a couple of minor updates


i'll try it out, i hope it works with the brutaldoom mod


I remember when they would have demos of games that you could play on computers at stores. This was one of them. The 6 degrees of freedom was so nauseating that I had to turn away from the screen for a moment.


Doom 3 never got the respect that it deserved. Awesome engine and they tried to put an actual story into the Doom IP other than "Run around and shoot shit." Got toasted by the Half-Life 2 fanbois and the "OMG! Gravity gun! Gravity gun! Did you just see that?! Gravity gun!!!" hysteria.

Kind of ironic that the Doom IP is now more popular with the kiddies these days than Half-Life (although Alyx closed the gap slightly for a bit). Of course, when you find out that you've cornered the market on digital distribution for over a decade before the first credible competitors show up, who gives a crap when HL2 : Episode 3 comes out, amirite?

Let's go. I'm reading the one piece manga. I'm also reading berserk. Just made it to chapter 100. Manga is superior to anime, tbh.

I will… eventually


the reason you say manga are better than anime is because they can hit you with a powerful sensory-emotional overload, and anime don't do that, they are traditional media in the relation to the audience. It's bad for your health and intellect. You become easily addicted and it's also a more solipsistic activity that also can lead to the development of an ill fetishist relation to the physical book object.


Every one has something they use to cope with this shitty world under capitalism. Some people do heroin "I like to read high fantasy manga. I think it';s a bit cynical to simply discount these works as "Addictive" as if there is nothing to learn, no information to garner of value, nothing of worth.

I find that far to cynical of an outlook.


>as if there is nothing to learn, no information to garner of value, nothing of worth.
I didn't say that.


That 2as the implication I was kind of drawing from what you said. If you didn't mean that sorry, but, Still anon.

How much power do you think entertainment has?

This video kinda got me thinking about Socialist Realism, Like sure the vid is teensy bit radlibby and silly in its conclusions in some places but whatever
I just am puzzled by how could socialist realism be a successful campaign in any aspect, I mean sure the projects under it, even those critiquing it are incredibly influential as opposed to the stuff made under capitalist realism

But I propose that is a matter of time, The earlier in time you exist, the more stuff you do is noteworthy
Anyways, I think even with socialist realism, The soviet union fell, Clearly it doesn't help prop up the system as the dangers to socialism exists in the real world in the form of opportunists and imperialists

My question is what level of censorship helps and what level doesn't?
Are all these anti-capitalist movies made under capitalism actually amount to any actual change?

If not,
Should a socialist society operate the same way?

>Like sure the vid is teensy bit radlibby and silly in its conclusions
thanks for the warning and sparing me that.

Socialist realism was just what most proles and peasants in the Soviet Union wanted to see during that time. Since the proletariat and the peasantry was the patron of the arts, that's what artists produced. In capitalism artists have to produce what people with money want. If you want creative freedom as an artist you have to do it as a hobby. We'll make sure people have enough leisure time to do that.

For entertainment we'll do healthy mental states vs unhealthy mental states. We stick people in a machine that looks at their brain while they consoom entertainment. And then try to support what ever entertainment correlates with the mental states that correlates with good brain health. Basically we are going with neurology over psychology because that has more objective data. Ideologically socialist media is what ever doesn't melt your brain. Because i think that ruling classes try to cause brain damage to the population as a way to make people cognitively impaired enough to be lorded over and screwed out of the wealth they produce.

Censorship was not very effective. I think the most effective tool for shaping the entertainment information sphere was just making sure that there is much more of the stuff you want people to see, so that statistically, people see more of the "correct information". The Soviets banned certain entertainment and in a weird turn of events that was like a stamp of approval that made that media very desirable and also politically credible.

I think we have to make sure that people who create the information that goes in the brain of people have similar life experiences than their audiences. The reason mainstream media has become so unbearably cringe is because people in that system live in a completely different world, and they have nothing in common with the masses.

In order to produce ideological stability i think socialism has to do something that allows people to track where economic surplus and resources are spend, and it has to be very accessible for normal people, basically the complete opposite of the incomprehensible stuff what wall-street does, that even baffles many so called expert economists. I think Socialism does transparent economy anPost too long. Click here to view the full text.


That's a good idea you said about a more transparent economy under socialism

>The Soviets banned certain entertainment and in a weird turn of events that was like a stamp of approval that made that media very desirable and also politically credible.

Very true, Like a troll, Ignoring is the first and best way to curb it, If something anti-socialist does get popular than idk what to do after that tho

>Socialist realism was just what most proles and peasants in the Soviet Union wanted to see during that time

Do you think the popular support of it ever fell out? Was it co-related with people's faith in the direction the government was going in?

>thanks for the warning and sparing me that.

It's not really that bad, It's mostly just talking about Tarkovsky's Stalker and film theory along with socialist and capitalist realism, one of the moments she kind of paints Stalin as an authoritarian who only wanted power kinda thing which is why I called it little radlib-y

I don't know who this Tarkovsky's guy really is but he came off kinda anti-communist in this vid


The insistence on prioritizing Socialist Realism at the expense of based prolekult is what caused Mayakovsky (based OP of the porky meme) to an hero. Terrible mistake. USSR could have dominated the art world as the home of the avantgarde but they chose to bet on promoting themselves as boring and lame instead. This is ur brain on demcent.


what's demcent


This guy sounds interesting, Russian Futurist and whatnot and the rocky relationship with the government


>what's demcent
it might mean democratic centralism, not sure tho

What kinda class do they teach abou urban legends and talk about folklore?

Humanities? Society? Would love to take a class like this



I FINALLY FUCKING FOUND THE VIDEO that talks all about the halloween franchise

and goddamn it was actually a GT video on how to kill M*ke meyers and not a series retrospective


So the politics of the purge movie
I've never watched it but I hear the in-universe explination is that they let it happen because "it boosts the economy and brings down unemployment"

I don't think the creator intended that to be commentary on how ghoulish the practices of capitalist countries are but it's funny
I'm pretty sure it was intended to be some boomer anarchism bad type of movie

I dunno but after finish watching the first season I am not too keen on calling it anti-capitalist or something like that

Maybe I can't pick on subtlety but I feel the show's message and point was all over the place

Like sure, income equality and how the rich see the poor as a not even human is front and center with it, but I don't really know what the show is trying to say about that
This show needs a proper conclusion, It really needs a second season

The VIP episode had me wanting Resurrection Of Stalin, The main thing I came off after watching this series is that I hate the rich even more


Also wtf was up with that north korea plotline
that's one of those things that kinda made me doubt it's anti-capitalist sentiments
Like did the creator include that so the south korean censors or whatever don't think the show is too leftist?

along with that episode "A fair world" the villains constantly saying "everything is fair and equal and good here" kinda striked me as unsubtle anti-communist mirroring


i lub squidwarg
squidwarp my beloved


I thought it was a Spongebob movie.



It was banned from television for a reason

I want to see dramatization and archives of Native American history when they lived in america
What are the best documentary/shows to learn about this period of time?


Seeing this rn
Tell me if there are inaccuracies



Gonna watch this next, somehow feels like this will be more inaccurate than the old one

It's got that History channel vibe

Also wtf "More than bows and arrows" is seemingly registered nowhere in my show cataloguing website but it's been given a certificate of originality by the library of congress and has a cowboy hall of fame award

You ever watch this shit? Ngl this is the sweet life, chill asf simple, fratbro but adult living

Apparently even goddamn Facebook has/had a streaming service and they aired 2 more seasons but apart from a torrent of S2 it's nowhere to be found

Like I get that these type of services are good for creative types to get funding, but they are a plight on media preservation

At least the first season will forever be up on YouTube https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLKnEB-2tPlM86_CSdaT4QHjgX1WJl6IXZ
