I'm currently grinding in Stardew Valley. I think I got it in 2016, but I never managed to 100% it. Never even got to the community center, I just married someone and then ended my save file there. I've done pretty good progress, I've almost finished my fishing bundle and need a fire quartz for the blacksmith one. I've always married Shane and have a sweet spot for him but his story line hits too close to home these days.

I just finished Dragon's Dogma. Unfortunately, I didn't really like it. I think I didn't have patience to build my character properly and all the post-game enemies became sponges with way too much HP. Maybe I will enjoy 2 more when that comes out. Now I'm playing Fire Emblem Three Houses for the first time. Fun game.

47.62 KB 630x307 Dune-1984wide.jpg
I watched Dune (1984) mainly to watch the original before I watch the latest one and the sequel. Cool movie although I was a tad confused with some plot points, but I guess that's what happens when a world with, what I'm assuming is rich lore is dumped on you in like 3 minutes and you're just kinda meant to take it along with a big book being made into a 2 hour movie. Some of the actor choices were very interesting. Kyle MacLachlan as Paul is always the one I remember but Jürgen Prochnow (Captain in Das Boot) and Patrick Stewart being in there was really surprising. Not to mention, fucking Sting. Set design was on point and looks really cool and "out there", something I miss from that period of time. The CG effects were both incredibly crude but also kinda stylish because of how crude they were. The movie had a weird fighting style where they'd activate a blocky translucent brown shield that'd envelope their body and they'd fight with knives and it was strange to see but also somewhat quaint. I wonder how the new Dune will be, it'd be interesting to compare them since they're about 40 years apart. Also hearing, what I believe was an electric guitar used in a sort of holy and grand light was actually kinda cool. I've never really heard that instrument be used in that way. It'd be like replacing hymns in a track with an electric guitar twang instead >>1018 Great movie, first Ghibli thing I saw I think. >>1025 As dumb as it sounds I can never watch Wall-E. It destroyed me when I first watched it and then again four years later when I rewatched it. It just makes me think about how lonely I am.
>>1038 >I watched Dune (1984) mainly to watch the original before I watch the latest one and the sequel. Check out the Spicediver edit if you haven't seen it. It rearranges the structure of the movie and adds in parts from the extended cut and deleted scenes too. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=faHQA_0d9Mo I would recommend that any newcomer to Dune start with the theatrical cut just to understand the reception it got when it came out. Dune is a movie close to my heart, but it's also something of a train wreck. >The CG effects were both incredibly crude but also kinda stylish because of how crude they were. The movie had a weird fighting style where they'd activate a blocky translucent brown shield that'd envelope their body and they'd fight with knives and it was strange to see but also somewhat quaint. I don't think there were any computer effects in the movie. The special effects for me are one of the weak points of the movie though, like the blocky shields and the scene with the navigator folding space. Another thing that irritates me is the "ornithopters" not moving their wings at all. >Also hearing, what I believe was an electric guitar used in a sort of holy and grand light was actually kinda cool. I've never really heard that instrument be used in that way. It'd be like replacing hymns in a track with an electric guitar twang instead People say the way electric guitars were used in the music is cheesy, but I've always really liked the soundtrack. It's the only thing I've ever heard from Toto that I've liked.

Does anybody know what happened to the guy who operated 04.sbs? He has closed his site, and I haven't heard from him since November, as that was the last time I saw him playing MikuMikuOnline. I know he used to come to /kind/, so I figured somebody might have an idea.

>>1014 I see. For me it was not the point of understanding others, but of they understanding me that appealed to me so much. For me it's Parity and Wiosna. My condolences, I know this all to well. So far I have lost everyone too. First my friends I had as a kid were lost in my youth, then the friends I have made in my youth were lost as an adult. Now as an adult I didn't make friends yet, who knows if I ever will. All I can say is that I am tired and don't even have the urge to reach out anymore. I feel like I just want to crawl into a corner and be done with everything. Btw, fuck Nomiya. Even Jigoro seems like a decent person in comparasion to him. Honestly, I think a person with an honest chemistry is the only one I would be able to put up with. As you said, just like Rin. She is always serious, as she said herself. Shiggy diggy made me snort, haven't heard that in a long time. >>1016 It was actually nice. I could see how it would be without wanking. Wasn't that much of a difference though, had more time for other things, but that was it.
>>937 Yeah no clue, I still sometimes try to head back there by accident and have to remind myself its dead >>982 Yeah I agree, imageboards are hard to host, cus you dont wanna step on anyones toes of sites you already like, but knowing what people will want to post is also hard. Thats part of why I went with a more proper web-forum, but thats ended up having all the difficulties of an imageboard, but with an extra mini-requirement/pressure of people wanting to have more longer proper posting, which does make it harder imo. I do think that the few I frequent are quite nice and dont suffer many of the usual issues with some imageboard posting trends. wapchan, hikari3 and sushi are my current favs >>1011 For me, its Lily. :) Idk I enjoyed all of the girls stories but I never got the same vibe from Rin as most fans, I think I need to give the game a replay now its been like a decade since i went through it all >>989 you've done very well with the site without advertising. I can talk about my experience advertising SheepishPatio with you in depth if you wanted to, since i think i've basically exhausted every self-serve ad avenue

I logged into my discord after a few months and my friend has deleted his account. I blocked him before because I was pushing people away. Before I blocked him I told him I was going to meet up with him at a con later this year. Should I go /kind/? I feel like he probably hates me now.
I've spent the day setting up a different operating system. Not sure if I'll stick with this one or not, but it's not like there's any perfect solution for me. >>978 I think you should go if you think he wants you to.
Somehow I've gotten a reputation for being a rough around the edges drunkard. Just a few months ago I was a really shy and quiet guy...
459.33 KB 500x314 embu.gif
>>980 You changed your reputation in just a few months? Are you drinking during the day? I'd be careful, I have also been shy and quiet which made me compensate by drinking. Then it got too much and I did embarassing stuff.. Now I mainly drink only beer when I'm alone and watch or play something. Anyway, I feel so stupid because I just realized that I really don't like my voice. By accident I heard myself through a voice-chat and it shocked me so much that I would stop talking altogether if I could. Part of it could be because I have been a very quiet kid/teenager, and I haven't payed any attention to it. After all the words do sound different out of my mouth than how others perceive it, but I think the voice is an important part of how others see me. Perhaps I should do some vocal training if that's not too late already. I'm really dumbfounded that I only realized something simple about myself this late.

The Patlabor movies after watching the OVAs, I like the idea of a Japanese police force with mechas. The movies were more serious than the OVA and I didn't understand everything, however I found them they were very pretty and relaxing.
>>832 I haven't thought about Kinmoza for a LONG time. >>935 I've been meaning to start patlabor for a while now. I really enjoyed the bit I watched, it being quite different from the usual mecha, and also I found it physical for cheap, so it'd really be a waste not to watch.

lets love other people

There's too much focus on gatekeeping. People forget that more goes into making a community than setting up barriers that keep party poopers out. A community needs values. e.g. phreak BBSs back in the 80s had their own code of honor. You don't rat people out. You share your knowledge. You do what you do for the love of the hack. Never hurt ordinary people. This is where 4chan went wrong. There's no values there aside from lolz and sticking it to normalfags. No wonder it went sideways. >>965 All communities are going to have their unwritten rules. If those are just there's nothing wrong with forcing people to play by them. The issue is when a userbase becomes a hivemind of drones obsessed with conforming to a code. e.g. a certain type of poster who will freak out and become hostile whenever they see X type of content posted and reply with the same insults, slurs, and images. "when see X, do Y" is burned in their brain. This kind of thing is a problem on social networks too but its more noticable on anonymous sites because its the only way users can signal what internet tribe they belong to. All of this stuff is off topic anyway. I wish I could love other people but I'm always worried they are being insincere and they are actually nasty and hostile but being fake nice. So I do what I can to stay away from people.

>>965 >>966 mean sites that let you post with no name do have values, though! like not breaking any laws! and FREE SPEECH!
>>965 >You can't deny that complete anonymity in combination with attracting a large number of certain users can lead to bringing out the worst of each other But I can deny that this is an element of anonymous image boards specifically and not part of the broader human experience. That happens everywhere, to everyone, online and off. >adjust to their culture, or you will get ruled out yes generally you are supposed to integrate into a culture of a place and not fight it, anon. if you dont fit with the culture, change or fit somewhere else. Expecting a group to automatically accept you without you having to actually put in the effort to fit in with them is very silly. Its something I've noticed a lot of normals do, prying open communities they dont belong to or fit in with, only to destroy them and then move on. I don't understand the mentality. > group-thinking is a thing even in places where posts cannot be easily traced to users to a lesser extent sure, humans are social animals after all >by making burner accounts and posting something valuable for example a significant portion of reddit does not allow you to participate unless you have lots of their upvotes accumulated. burner accounts dont work for this. new accounts and low score accounts are also more often than not flagged automatically for moderation when posting at all. so this is not possible in practice, and I think its a bit ironic for you to be complaining about groupthink, when the penultimate example of groupthinking communities gets brought up. It may not be perfect, but anonymous imageboards are far and above forums with user accounts.
>>973 Sure, they can be moralistic and have ideals they cling to but there's no ethics there and whatever values you find on those sites just aren't good when taken by themselves. e.g. emphasis on being contrarian, as amoral as the law will allow. sticking it the normies, and not giving a fuck by itself is a terrible rule to live by. If you take that to the extreme its just self-destructive.
>>988 >But I can deny that this is an element of anonymous image boards specifically and not part of the broader human experience. That happens everywhere, to everyone, online and off. Sure, but a large role plays anonymity and the place in itself that fosters that behaviour. > you dont fit with the culture, change or fit somewhere else. Maybe I expressed myself wrong there, obviously I don't expect 4chan to change according to my will alone, I search for places that I like, and avoid those I don't agree with. Having different cultures is nothing bad, for example I like this place here specifically for it, and don't want it to change into change into 4chan for the sake of attracting more people. There is a difference between coming to a place and expecting it to change to your will, and being a regular and not wanting it to change into something I am not used to from that place. Regarding reddit, I was also talking about forums in general, and like you say, some parts of reddit have those rules in place, not all of them. Avoid places like that, and my point still stands, based on a username alone you're not much more exposed than someone posting on an imageboard. I brought up groupthinking exactly because some act like there are worlds between a forum and an imageboard when in reality that's not the case at all, up/downvoting is groupthinking on a larger scale, but like I said, you also have that on imageboards, only in another way and not as obvious, either way it's ignorant to argue about a definitive way of what is "above" in the end, it depends on so much context.
