just popping by to say i love you guys and that i wish i had realized sooner that it's meaningful to try and struggle to be happy rather than just writing it off as an impossibility

do you guys wanna try making like a discord server or something? i don't want to cannibalize whatever posts people would be making here but it might lower the barrier to entry for people interacting with each other; if you're not familiar with it, it's kind of like an IRC server type thing but much more usable. there's a mobile app, a website version, or a program that you can download. let me know what you think!

unrelatedly: i just got my prescription for estrogen HRT this morning, like 50 minutes ago. I have to go back a bunch of times over the next few weeks and do more blood testing and shit later, which is standard but pesky, but I get my first E injection directly into my ass on tuesday. I haven't really told anyone besides my partner. I'm pretty excited! It's been something i've been thinking about for a long time, i never thought i'd be able to do it. i don't have too much else going on right now, i'm going through a big hong kong acton movie phase right now and it's really fun. i freaking love anthony wong, yo. hit me up for digital files / recommendations lol. i'm pretty much just waiting for the spring / summer, i want to go back to the drive-in that i volunteer at sometimes and hang out with my buds out there. feel free to hit me up if you're anywhere remotely near PA, it's a fun weekend pretty much guaranteed. i hope you're all doing well

cereal talk 2k18:

i would like religiously only eat rice krispies when i was eating cereal growing up, i would maybe dabble in some kix but only when necessary. i think i'm a quaker, cereal should be shitty and weird like rice krispies and not sweet and good like most cereal

I have a tattoo on the palm of my hand that was inspired by a trip to Gainesville Fest with One Reason.  I'm pretty sure no one in that van thinks I'm a cool dude, though.
i think about this (in an unhealthy way) sometimes, how much of my identity is like second hand from people who probably hate me now because i suck real bad

i should learn one of the crafts that is mysterious to a lay person, like back massage or clicker training. i'm a total fool, if i hired someone for clicker training on craigslist and they showed up with the damn thing i'd be like "this is pretty legit. here's my billfold" before i even saw them wrangle a dog. huge market

it's kind of painful for me to talk about but this happened with me and the person i'm seeing presently, back in september /october of last year. we're still together. it works most of the time because we (hopefully) both understand that the relationship should just end if one of us is unhappy in it or whatever, but it does fucking suck and is painful. honestly i try not to think about it too much.

i don't know if it's good advice or anything but i would try to get a feeling about whether it works for you two to continue, if that's something you're both interested in. it's okay if you two wind up splitting up over it. i know that will completely fuck up your shit and it is terrifying but you have to place your self and your future ability to be happy above temporary crisis. i know that's assuming that kind of split is financially viable which is a massive assumption.

i'm sorry this happened to you

what would that look like in practice though? is it a button they lick or do they press it with their nose?

what's up with dog training, i heard clicker training is some wild shit. is it cute when someone trains their dog to shake hands?

i started listening to old time radio stuff after i heard a program on a radio station we have out here called WBAI- there's an old dude named 'max schmid' who does a 2 hour show every sunday of all different radio programs.

i think the first thing i heard was either something like suspense (which is just different random 'thriller' or 'mystery' or 'horror' plays) or an episode of jean shepherd's radio show (jean shepherd was this old guy who was popular out here 40 years ago- he's most famous now for being the writer / narrator of the movie 'a christmas story')

it's something that helps me pass the time at my place of employ, and also for like half the months out of the year i usually take long car rides on the weekend (i travel to a drive-in theater about 90 minutes away for most of their screenings)

as far as modern podcasts go, i like my brother my brother and me and all the other mcelroy content; they seem like genuinely nice people who are also super funny.

i actually listen to like a million podcasts so let me just break it down:

the best show with tom scharpling - it's 3 hours long, it's super boring, it's the best show ever. the calls between tom and jon wurster are like the funniest thing ever. if you've never heard it, it was originally a radio show but it's basically tom being funny as hell, taking some calls, and hanging out. about once every episode a 'fake caller' calls in and does a really ridiculous routine with tom, and it's always the same guy doing different characters and it's the best
hollywood handbook - this one is weird, it's basically two guys in an improv contest to act the most stupid without blinking. nominally, it's an advice podcast about how to make it in this wild world we call 'showbiz'
the dollop - this one is not actually that funny most of the time but it's not stimulating enough to fit into any other category. it depends on what you find funny. in any case, it's two dudes talking about random stories from american history that are usually ridiculous or otherwise awful. i like the erik prince episode done recently.
chapo trap house - they say really awful dumb shit all the time but i still listen, i'm pretty starved of 'radical' content so i'll take basically anything

good brain podcasts-
citations needed - this one rules, it's two fellows going in-depth on PR bullshit and how very carefully, deliberate narratives are formed in the media. highly recommend, just pick an episode that sounds interesting
you must remember this - 'hollywood' history podcast by a really smart lady. tons of different topics. i recommend the manson series or the one about jane fonda / jean seberg
supporting characters - this one is small and just for film nerds but it's lengthy interviews with important subcultural figures in the 'genre film' scene. i recommend the tim lucas one, but only because i'm already a huge mario bava nerd
projection booth - for film nerds, this is probably the best film criticism podcast i've heard. it's not amazingly intellectual but they go out of their way to secure some really great interviews with people involved in productions

tabletop RPG:
the adventure zone - it's the mcelroy brothers playing board games (originally D&D, later others) with their dad; the first 'season' is something that i've listened to like 5 times (it's like 70+ hours long lol)
neoscum - a comedy / improv shadowrun podcast that is super embarrassing to recommend but i'm way into it. they have improv powers i've never witnessed
glass cannon podcast - fairly serious pathfinder podcast starring a friendly group of dudes, still lighthearted enough to not be a total slog

i also got big into audiobooks. i started listening to a bunch of genre stuff but i've branched out to non-fiction now. i've gotten through william gibson's sprawl trilogy (neuromancer fukken rules y'all), dune, snow crash (cool except for the awful """sex""" scene towards the end), tons of conan the barbarian short stories, etc. i'm finishing up the conquest of bread now.

i'm the podcast queen. i've listened to them all. i can recommend stuff if anyone is looking for anything

since it's quiet around here i thought i'd make a casual conversation thread, to lower the barrier to entry.

just post whatever you want to talk about, if you don't feel like making a big ol topic.

i've been listening to old time radio shows all day at my office job. i have a lot of free time there. my big ones that i like are:

vic and sade, a short comedy program that is basically 3 people talking to each other about minor domestic issues. it ran for like 12 years and is the most sublime thing ever. i want to go to wisconsin to look at the collection of scripts they have at a library there. it has a lot of running jokes that give me that phat dopamine or whatever when i recognize them, it's pavlovian. it reminds me a lot of the jon wurster calls on the best show with tom scharpling

yours truly, johnny dollar - a mystery show about an insurance investigator. the framing device is that johnny dollar is recounting the expenses incurred over the course of the investigation. it's a good mix of seriousness, pulpyness, and humor for me. i like hearing everyone's dumb voices.

i'll post about other stuff when i remember it.

thanks for reading

i don't have them very often but i love those friggin veggie sausages
thank you! i've always wanted to try to set up something like that but i don't really have the space right now, i love hearing about it though. i could also use a dark cave and some type of goal, i know what you mean
what's the darkroom like? i only know a little bit about that kind of stuff but i would love to read whatever you care to write about it

you should post other art stuff too if you feel like it

Is .club a real extension? I love that. I agree we don't really need the subcategories. I'm gonna sleep on where those links should go. So far, I can only think one should go to Brett's XPeeps profile and another should go to whatever is now.
i also am in awe that that is a real website, the world is an amazing place

i listen to podcasts and stuff a lot, mostly the best show with tom scharpling

music wise ever since went down i am bad at listening to new music, i wish it was easier.

i'm trying to listen to all the big ol' bands just so i can have some context for things today. lately, neil young, emerson lake and palmer, just random stuff. i like japanese pop music

i'm dumb as shit and i can't make myself read as often as i think i should sometimes but i've been working my way through a bunch of books on film for the past year or so. the main one is tim lucas' epic biography of mario bava. in between trying to force books into my face i read a lot of comics, i really enjoyed the image comics run of "Prophet" and i highly recommend it to anyone who is a fan of science fiction or fantasy (it's kind of like Heavy Metal)

i think there's probably at least one album we can all agree is cool. you just have to get to the root, where do the cool jams spring from. a halloween sound effects record?
General / where to get in on <blank> thread
February 14, 2017, 03:27:24 PM
thread about how to get into stuff, how to begin doing stuff

what do you know?

if you wanna get into mario bava movies, the best way to start is either with his first 'official' director credit, Black Sunday, or if you want a more modern movie (that is in color and isn't basically a hammer horror ghost movie) you can watch Blood and Black Lace
these are also great ways to start getting into italian horror movies in general, he is kind of like the fountain that other people drank from

i will update further when i remember what else i know
