Anyone know anything about feng shui or related? Any materialist ideas about it?

>>16238 Directions so that the front of the house always receives cool winds while turning away from the sea storms at 90 degrees to avoid your doors being caved in by winds and floods. The rest about luck is just superstition and cope.
>>16240 you should put your bed facing west so the sun doesn't hit your face in the morning
>>16238 When positioning a desk in the room, make sure that the light goes in from the left side if you're right handed, and from the right side if you're left handed.
>>16238 Putting a mirror opposite a doorway or hall gives you a bad feeling because it's momentarily disconcerting to see someone coming towards you before you realise it's your own reflection. Luck is dependent on mood, among other things - luck is just being able to recognise positive opportunities, and being in a negative mood will attune your perception more toward sources of danger. Not sure if there's anything else in Feng Shui that has 'real' explanations other than this and the stuff about wind and sunlight. Probably worth going over it all to check, though. Even the stuff that has no strict materialist explanation likely ends up conforming to aesthetic/design principles.
>>16238 >Anyone know anything about feng shui or related? Any materialist ideas about it? nosey people invented a reason to get into other people's houses, but it's harmless, so whatever.

>>18135 I only listen to clips of their bits, and those are generally pretty funny. Love Blackface John Wick VS 8chan Neo. Never listened to a whole episode and don't intend to, so can't comment on that experience.
I'm gay actor Michael Douglas
My favourite moment from the cumbois, Charlie Sheen: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gbfzHJwFvaA
>>18174 Yeah, clips are the highlights. They're basically just riffing, and the clips are the good parts.
>>18135 No it isn't funny but I listen to it anyways because nick mullen is my close personal friend

So my grandma lived in Lithuania back when it was an SSR (She says she was born right after ww2 for reference) and she liked the movies there, from what I can gather they were family friendly affairs similar to the first pirates of the carribean in tone, any comments and maybe recomendations for old soviete media?

>>18562 by media i meant cartoons
>>18562 I frankly don't see why. The animation is neat, the short stories are never crass or outright stupid and it's fairly good at carrying across fixtures of Russian culture. It's also a show aimed at 2-6 year olds, so it's not exactly meant to be comparable to a more mature cartoon work.
>>18564 i didnt like it either, my favorite was nu pogodi that was the best
>>18567 The irony being that Nu Pogodi imitated Tom and Jerry with Russian characteristics, rather than being it's own format.
>>18574 Why the hell are my posts saged for no fuckin' reason!?

Hoping someone can expand and provide some more context for some thoughts i've been having lately. For example in this clip from the latest mandalorian(don't watch if you don't want spoilers). The defeat of the empire and the second death star was originally a simple happy(if not lazy) ending to a series of adventure films. Now it's always kind of, for lack of a better term, deconstructed. My earliest memory of this is Clerks. if memory serves that one was actually a conversation about the first death star blowing up and how it made luke skywalker a murderer or something. But it was supposed to be a half joking kind of thing. Now that ironic reflexivity seems to have totally replaced any kind of genuine sentiment. Now look I know this is easily explained by shitty writing and copyright licenses. The property of star wars makes money so you have to find a way to keep milking it and since people already own their own copies of the original, it has to be sequels that don't depart too far from the original or else it it'll become something else and possibly not make as much money. But my point is that it creates a very actual shadow of circular recurrence over the society thats watching this. A sort of cynical defeatism where nothing can ever get better and disrupting the status quo will only ever lead you back to the original struggle anyway. Things can't end, so things can't change.
>>18555 Is this the same premise as the Book from late Mark Fisher, what's it called again ? A yes Capitalist realism !? Stop consuming big budget culture industry that is stuck on a depressing repeat because of capitalism. You can divert your attention away from that, and towards smaller budget production or even just indie artists that tell better stories. When you find something you like tell other people about it. I know that the old established IPs about space operas have turned to shit where people suffer as much as today but with better technology. Find the new IPs that aren't about dogshit futures. There's even a thread >>14271 for this in the /hobby/ catalogue already.
>>18555 Basically as cliches and tropes arise they get noticed and after a while it's "not cool" to lie them, so they get deconstructed or subverted or whatever to be 'hip and cool'. That's the gist of it.
Why the hell did my post sage?!

Has anyone else watched the original british Utopia ?I marathoned the 12 episodes in 2 days and i was blown away ,it's a shame it isn't talked about more especially now with the pandemic

Never even heard of it, what's it about?
>>18372 There's a government conspiracy that's kept secret for a lot of the first season until it's revealed that they are going to exterminate a large portion of the population to stop climate change.
>>18367 I mean it really fits because GRT are some of the most shat on people in all of britain
>>18331 The anti-natalist theme to save the planet from self-destruction and conspiracy fiction was entertaining
>>18331 >The message of the story was that we need to reduce population huh, no, the message was that malthussian retards in power will want to do so in the light of ecological collapse, not that it's a good thing, as they're always the antagonists. I liked how it showed institutional power subservient to a secret agency apparitus, just like they are in reality with US empire and capital interest (very apparent in the assange case for example). >>18331 I found the directing, music and aesthetics amazing, and the plot/chars were great. One of my fav show. Yeah season 2 was not as good, but still good, and one really gripped me in.

Just watched it. It sucked. Totally unnecessary sequel. It was much less ambitious or outrageous than the first, and barely had any decent gags. All of the stuff they were mocking are things we all already know about. There's nothing funny or revelatory or even interesting, really, just laughing at dumb Americans. If anything what's on display here in parody is more tame than the reality. The brand of humor feels extremely dated, too, which brings me to my other takeaway. It feels out of touch about racism. Cohen is more interested in anti-Semitism specifically, which is whatever, but any other racism at most gets a throwaway line (kids in cages). What's even weirder is the one black person in the movie functions as a "magical negro" (both for Tutar and Borat) in the story they're telling to connect the skits together. With everything happening related to racism, that's all they could come up with?

nigger cat lmaoo
According to porkypedia: >After leaving New York, he moved to an apartment at 10 Barnes Street near Brown University with his surviving aunt; a few years later, they moved to a slightly less expensive place at 65 Prospect Street. As a result of the Great Depression, he shifted towards socialism, decrying both his prior beliefs and the rising tide of fascism.[78] He supported Franklin D. Roosevelt, but he thought that the New Deal was not sufficiently leftist.[79]
>>18382 He shifted significantly to the left in the last 6 years of his life, disowning his reactionary past and basically becoming a socialist. I recommend reading his personal letters, it's fascinating watching how his views change, and how disillusioned and disgusted he becomes with the views of his younger self.
>>18382 He shat on The New Deal for trying to save the doomed system of capitalism and advocate for revolutionary actions. He was only a reactionary due to his dysfunctional upbringing of a NEET in hyper conservative New England. Similar to how Che used to be white supremacist until he actually lived alongside actual working class people and realized the “racial divide” of LatAm is completely made up by the ruling oligarchs to mimic to colonial period.
>>12317 the insane produce the best art, its why reactionary nineteenth century Russians made some of the best literature
