Recently transferred ~500 albums to my PC. Varied range of genres: electronic, funk and soul, hip hop, jazz and fusion, rock and metal, etc. My funk collection is easily the biggest though. It's mostly 70s and 80s stuff from the USA, Japan and UK. Fav artists are Prince and Parliament/Funkadelic. Absolute banger here: https://youtu.be/HSXUCrVFFrM
>>123 >format FLAC, I hate streaming due to Quality of Life issues. >how big is your collection around 1.2tbs. >what are you collecting Argentine music. All of it. I've got straight from source rips of the earliest recorded music in my country. I'm also well read (heard?) on late 80s seattle alt rock. Musical shitposts are kinda my weakness. >do you have some treasures or some neat thingamajig? I've got a bunch of CDs of local bands known only to my neighbors. Some are -extremely- good experimental/psych rock from bands now gone that only I and a number of friends will ever remember. I've got a technics 1200. My dad was a DJ and we had one for old time's sake. I cant post anythign from those bands tho so have some siouxie inspired post-punk https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ly3Ns1SVyZU

Does anyone remember what books these are? anon 07/14/2023 (Fri) 06:12:09 No. 119 [Reply]
Remembering a few young adult books that I would have read probably in the late 80s/early 90s, roughly. Can't remember the titles and haven't had much luck searching them up based on what I remember. - Fantasy story where the MC's sidekick had a name I found pretty ridiculous, it was like "Pompoo" or something, pretty sure there was a "poo" syllable in it at least, because that's a great choice for a name in a kids' book right? The villain was described as having "a claw of iron", in full it might have been "a heart of stone and a claw of iron" but I'm only sure about the claw part. One of the chapters left off on the MC about to fall and grabbing what he thought was his friend's hand and it was like "but it wasn't a hand. It was a claw of iron". I forget what happened then but that chapter cliffhanger stuck with me. - Fantasy setting that lays out the classic "whatever brave knight can slay the dragon plaguing our kingdom can marry the princess" setup, but the twist is that the princess runs away, gets herself outfitted with a suit of full plate armor, and goes around the countryside disguised as a man, hunting the dragon herself. Ultimately finds and engages the dragon in a really brutal battle where half her face gets burnt off and it almost ends in a mutual kill, but she gets that Sigfried type dragon blood magic that lets her understand animals who are having a conversation like "poor girl, if only she knew there was a magic healing spring right over there". So she recovers, goes back to the king while still in her knight disguise, demands the hand of the princess as promised and keeps pressing even after the king is like "but the princess has run away". When he finally promises to uphold the bargain if the princess comes back, she takes off the helmet and is like "and so my hand is my own to give as I please". - Fantasy setting where there's this drug called "surka" (I think) that's basically wizard crack, powers up your magic power and you can do wizard duels for days on end but you might drop dead of overexertion afterwards. The royal heir ends up abusing it after being frustrated by a lack of magic power, and ends up burning their magic power out completely, only to be told "didn't you know the royals are always late bloomers", sort of a downer ending but it was clearly meant to be a "drugs are bad mmkay" type of story. - Modern setting story preaching a "video games are bad mmkay" type of message. The basic premise was that these kids got hold of some gun-like device that if you "shot" someone with it, you would send them into a parallel dimension game world, but only if you pulled the trigger with real hate in your heart. One of the kids was named Mario (I'm sure the author thought this was very clever, even though the character generally went by the nickname Mars for most of the book). Mars was special because he hated himself enough that he could send *himself* into the other world without a helper. - Modern setting where some kids have a club for their little friend group, and as part of the club stuff they start doing sacrifices to a papier-mache volcano as a joke. They end up contacting an actual demon called something like Yargh the Terrible (who resembles a tyrannosaurus) and tries to get them to "plant" the volcano so that it turns into a real volcano. They chanted "magma magma magma" during the rituals and ultimately stopped the volcano from becoming real by saying it backwards, "amgam amgam amgam". Pretty much the moral seemed to be "don't fuck around with demon worship even as a joke". Any of these sound familiar?

Here we'll be cataloguing digital artwork shared on BBSes from the time before the Web took over. Art from any part of the world is welcome, but I suggest aiming for stuff from the east, as it's commonly overlooked. I'll start.

>>82 Alright, thanks for the update. Looking forward to the fixes. >>81 No worries, just remember that PC-9801 graphics are meant to have letterboxing on 4:3 displays. Sidenote, I randomly get detected as a spammer based on IP. It's a flawed detection method now that a lot of people are put behind Carrier Grade NATs, effectively making entire neighborhoods (and even wider areas) share the same public IP.
>>83 Sorry about that, we've been having a lot of issues with CP spam and I've been trying different methods to combat it. I'll disable the dns block lists. Just need to figure out how to mass load hash lists from 4plebs and desuarchive..

Detailed urban landscapes from the mid to late 20th century. anon 07/07/2023 (Fri) 02:46:09 No. 97 [Reply]
Does anyone here love to draw urban landscapes? I'm a really big fan of architecture and I love drawing old urban landscapes from by gone eras. A big inspiration for my urban drawings comes from R. Crumb's background art work and the backgrounds of Ralph Bakshi's Fritz the Cat. If anyone else likes to draw these urban settings, feel free to post them in the thread. P.S. I'm still wondering how I should color these drawings.

Any tips to make your art 6 digits on social media? It seems evident that you need some kind of presentation to get the numbers... but my styling is different so... how do i get the same amount too? Computatively? Or is it perhaps that only one and one styling only gain the kind of traffic it gets?

80s metal thread anon 12/05/2022 (Mon) 20:10:29 No. 183 [Reply]
I just found this board and I already feel home, so I decided to start a thread about some of my favorite 80s metal. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bdhb2oG-d3A One of the greatest prog/heavy metal albums of all time. One of the first metal albums to experiment with synthesizers and wow did it sound futuristic for 1986. However, Queensryche reached their zenith 2 years later with this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_8_JqGPteKk Operation: Mindcrime, a politically-charged concept album about a drug addict named Nikki and his role in a shadowy revolutionary organization. The moral in short is that there will be jackals who exploit people with ideals for their own gain. Another interesting one is Iron Maiden's "Seventh Son of a Seventh Son". https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KMuGG0ajtCs Their most progressive rock influenced release to date; similar to Queensryche's "Rage for Order" in some ways but still definitely feels like a Maiden album. Bruce Dickinson's vocals, the keyboards, and the interesting songwriting is a treat for anyone who loves this sort of proggy stuff. Now, I know I posted 3 progressive metal albums in a row, and I just want one more before I move onto other things, so bare with me... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R5TnV09-n9A Voivod's "Nothingface". Extremely experimental for something from 1989, it's "proggish" but not in the vein of these other albums which are prog in their use of "grandiose" instrumentation and unusual songwriting, and while this album has the latter, it's in a class of its own. Perhaps the first "avant-garde metal" release ever; it's very dissonant, but also weirdly melodic. Sadly the guitarist, who went by "Piggy" passed in 2005. Alright, now let's move on to death metal because I'm not a big thrash guy (I like thrash but I'm more of a death metal guy) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jldI2ZzYgFQ Scream Bloody Gore by Death. I don't wanna get into the argument of "who did it first" in terms of death metal, but just know that this album is a classic for a reason. However, I think one of the more prototypical brutal death metal albums is this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bYjNHGUB5MU

>>215 >blind guardian ROFL
this russian deicide/MA worship album is pretty good. Sounds so reminiscent of the 1990 s/t I can't unhear it lol: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QAohe88PK7E not 80's shit but whatever
>>204 looking back I feel these criticisms can be applied to shit like serpent of the light and later records what with the proportionately generic death-metal songwriting with the same riff sequences repeating along with the minor triad and III/V/down-step tremolos being pretty obvious but inquisition is basically an immortal clone band that's centered around the sw-ethos of muh thrashy harsh minimal and cold atmosphere. Legion-era deicide is the best shit. The half-step interval transitions and shit like that have more soul in stuff like the 90's s/t too.
