I fight for my legs like Olivia Pierce and Dr. Strangelove. I do not walk towards the military and the MOS assigned to me. I simply say the coldest wars are won.Ra social memory complex cuts the cord and I fall. I have to fight to stay up and the complex possesses my body.—RA SOCIAL MEMORY COMPLEX DOES NOT FIGHT NUCLEAR WAR :)—I just want to walk.





This album is like if Chris-Chan actually had musical talent.

Ethio-Jazz straight from the 70's golden age. Nothing but classic time after time during this decade and all of this genre's glory is attributed to mulatu astatke. Many contemporary/urban-influenced jazz from Italy also came out during the '70s: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pbnoPZu4Wp8if you're into any of let's say yuji ohno's works, I'm pretty sure you'll like what this thread could have in store for you.


Lol I'm an ethio and I hate those old classics, makes me sick


I've never even heard of Ethio-jazz, not that I didn't think there were Ethiopian jazz musicians.


>>303were you exposed to them too much? Like were your parents constantly playing them?


How does visual elements and aesthethics adds up in an image to be the value it hasOr how does the market (of anime) perceive the rules and theories of itLike especially the ones with million traffics and salesWhat are its keypoints, of building it


Need explnation, scientific perhaps, on how lines and volumes are placed accordinglyBased on the scenes, or the character, or the physics of the scene and the acting/actionsSo it looks correct, physcally functional, or at least functioning naturally in dynamics





>>284wrong shinobu...



>>298Correct shinobu?


There can only be one Shinobu.


What (non-manga) have you anons been reading lately? Post your book, what you think of it, and talk to other anons about what they've been reading! I've been tearing through One Hundred Years of Solitude the past few days, don't know why I put it off for so long; 100% lives up to the hype.People really weren't exaggerating about the incest and shared names though holy shit.

>>112Honestly Sanderson makes the most "anime" feeling fantasy I've ever read (this is not a bad thing). I think it's interesting to compare how it raises it's stakes in comparison to homestuck, specifically how Sanderson does it in a better way. He gives all the characters time to breath and interact with each other, and the utterly ridiculously powerful stuff is given enough of a build up before it actually gets screen time. Additionally, every character gets the right amount of screen time. I recall that at the end of each chapter in most of that series, I just wanted to skip to when the narrative would get back to the narrative that was going on. The man knows how to write a chapter that makes you beg for more. Lol just wait until you see link marry the master sword and when king candy comes around.


>>108 here. Been a while since I posted but I thought I'd update for a tiny bit of discussion on here. Over the past year or so I've slowly listened to Crime & Punishment, The Brothers Karamazov and The Citadel. All really good books. Won't give a brainlet's analysis of Dostoevsky's work so I'll say what I enjoyed about each. Crime and Punishment was an entertaining book right from the start and I very much enjoyed reading the build up to the murder, the murder itself and the eventual escape. While the delirium afterward was boring it picked right back up again until the ending. Was never a moment I felt really bored by the book although I was spoiled on the ending about halfway through when trying to figure out some themes of the book and meanings behind the characters which annoyed me. My favourite part of the book will always be the chapter that discusses Raskolnikov's idea of the Übermensch and the ordinary person and how the Petrovich discusses this with him how he read his theory in the paper on it and begins to suspect him because of it. Very fun cat and mouse energy while reading. As for Karamazov. I found the first 10 chapter or so excruciatingly boring but once it got to The Great Inquisitor I really enjoyed it since that story was just amazing. After that I found myself really engrossed with the characters and loved how the book went on. A very long book but worth it in the end. Although, I did find the divergence from the main plot about Ilyusha to be strange and somewhat ruined the pacing but I heard it was because he knew it was going to be his last book and wanted to throw all his unused stories in here in some form. The Citadel was a short book and I finished it a week ago. Mainly about a young doctor in 1920's Britain and his life in a small mining town up in Wales. He spends most of his time dealing with how terrible, greedy and under-qualified the other doctors are while trying to actually HELP patients that come to see him. Leading him to help miners bit by bit and become a loved figured in the the small town. Eventually the main character gets married and moves to London to start his own practice but discovers that actually treating patients is not profitable and starts to wonder if he should be a greedy person giving coloured water to patients so they'd all remain sick and keep paying him Post too long.

I recently read a volume of Stanisław Lem that included Fables for Robots and The Cyberiad, it was very fun! It made heavy use of language so it might depend on the translation, but in my language it was very amusing.


I'm reading Iqbal's Javidnamah. A dream-like fantasy poem where the protagonist is guided by the poet Rumi on a journey through the stars. On his way, he meets the people of various planets, Egyptian Pharaohs, Satan and even Nietzsche. It has this other worldly magical aesthetic combining Asian religious imagery with references to modern events like industrialization, WW1, the rise of Japan or the Russian revolution. Iqbal is mostly forgotten these days and painted as a fundamentalist for his pan-Asianist, pan-Islamic views. Sadly, he was India's last great Persian fiction author. The language would die out a decade or so after he died.


I picked up M.M. Kaye's The Far Pavilions awhile ago. The only work I'd read by her previously was The Ordinary Princess, which I was re-reading when I noticed in the back it said she was actually famous for her historical novels. The local library had The Far Pavilions, so I grabbed it. It's about a boy born to English parents in India in the mid-19th century, except thanks to events he's quickly orphaned and raised by his nurse as an Indian, and then a lot of stuff happens. It's one of those sweeping epics that just follows this guy through his life and gives you an extensive portrait of India and the people living in it during the time period. I'm actually enjoying it quite a bit. It's much more tell than show, but the author does it well, and all the characters feel real. I can't speak for the historical accuracy, but it feels like it was the product of a lot of research. So far it's worth a read if you have any interest in India during the time period.


I came across this video from 1998 on another site, made for "anime week" on some scifi TV channel, it's pretty cool:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lRR027lJ1-s

>>290She voiced Ulala from Space Channel 5, as well. Kinda weird how her career was only something like 5 years but in those 5 years she seemed to be pretty big in a small niche of anime and vidya.
