How important was it for the soviets during ww2
I already made a massive effort post about this so there is no thread to really be had. Please read https://www.nationstates.net/page=dispatch/id=921020 TL;DR: Lend Lease was barely 4-10% of the Soviet war-effort, and the majority of it was delivered after the Battle of Stalingrad. The first deliveries didn't reach the USSR before the Battle of Moscow halted the German assault and pushed them back. On top of that the majority of Lend Lease tanks and planes were inferior to both Soviet and German tech used, only the Studebaker truck and Aircobra were worth a damn. On top of that was the fact that the main reason the Nazis had the power to even begin the war was because American, British and Continental European corporations actively supported Hitler up until 1941, with Rockafeller's Standard Oil helping refuel German Submarines up until mid 1942. >inb4 Muh 1939-1940 Soviet-German trade pact Soviet exports to Germany were 5th place in terms of amount and were only even that high because they got embargoed from their usual sources. The amount of Wheat the Germans got in trade from the USSR wasn't worth even a month of bread for the army and was less than 1% of Soviet food stocks. The USSR received thousands of pieces of machinery, equipment and military vehicles including a semicomplete ship of the line, the Lutzow, which took part in the war against the Germans. The Nazis were also politically supported by the West throughout much of the war and prior to it, with Poland being a major part of this.

The state of animation today Anonymous Comrade 07/26/2020 (Sun) 18:10:21 No. 13238 [Reply] [Last]
Aight, so I've heard folks talking about how lazy a certain "toon-boom" style is, I just wanted to hear opinions and show off some art I made

>>16631 stay mad
the best way to animate is just draw lots of wojaks
I don't give a fuck about whatever styles cartoons have these days, I'm more concerned about executive meddling and the neverending exploitation of animators and writers.
>>17891 > executive meddling and the neverending exploitation of animators and writers. So something that gets solved by capitalism being eliminated then.

Getting back on topic. The biggest entertainment name in history would have enough resources to not recycle animation cycles nowadays. Particularly when it is entirely CGI. I mean… back in the day? When you had to hand draw each and every cell of animation? Yeah, I can see being cheap, or at least not wanting to cramp you hand over and over again while drawing it all. But Frozen is a question of base character design when you can make rigs and shit, right? I realize it is likely more complicated than it looks, but you still start with a base model that simplifies things greatly that you can just copy and paste between scenes.

Thoughts on TMTHC and The Plot Against America? Loved TPAA, hated TMTHC past season 2-3
Only saw the first season of TMTHC and loved it, but I could tell that once it got past the plot of the book itself it would run right into bad writing.
I kinda liked TMITHC, honestly, if it wasn't cancelled I'm pretty sure it would've gotten more time for things like the BCR and the multiverse plotpoints to develop

I mean I'm no fan of Burgerland consoomerism (or Burgerland in general really), but this is honestly just retarded contrarianism. Americans have made plenty of significant contributions to art and literature.
European castles and palaces are pure bourgeois masturbation, or remants of the degenerate feudal aristocracy that still somehow persists after centuries. At least kitchy roadside American crap was made by honest workers or upstart petty proprietors, rather than commissioned by some inbred shitheel Lord with a family banking fortune.

Horror discussion from a leftist perspective /Leftyhorror/ 08/15/2020 (Sat) 15:52:31 No. 14910 [Reply]
I've seen only a few other threads about horror on here and they seemed too specific, so I thought I'd make a broader one. How do you feel about the current state of horror media? To me it seems at it's always been in a way; a mixed bag. However I feel like I've noticed this trend and, correct me if you think I'm wrong, a lot of more successful recent horror seems to be more creator-driven than in the past. This is natural I think, as the internet has opened a lot of opportunities for more unique visions and riskier decisions that large studios would otherwise reject. In a strange sort of symbiosis, though, these large studios attempt to acquire these successful creators and even properties for themselves; see the phenomenon of Slenderman for example. Once an entirely community made, solely internet creation has gotten several of his own movies, and has by and large become an 'artifact' of sorts of 2010's-era web. Studios cannibalize these unique properties and, once they've made some modicum of a profit, utterly destroy the integrity of them, leaving communities to look for the next big thing in horror. With that aside, feel free to discuss almost literally anything horror related here; movies, books, ARGs, games, creepypasta (the rare good kind, if you can find any).

>>16695 Idi i Smotri is like the apocalypse now of soviet era cinema. It takes its name from the book of revelation, for that matter.
>>18020 Come and See is IMO much better than Apocalypse Now.
>>16697 Have you seen Season 3, which takes place almost entirely in the post-industrial poverty of the original town, or the half-abandoned post-recession suburban sprawl of Las Vegas? It's literally Hinterland: the show.
>>18041 I think those two movies are very different, and you really can't compare them.
I was trying to find a good list of 2019/2020 horror movies and on Rotten Tomatoes there is surprisingly a lot with tons of hidden gems: https://editorial.rottentomatoes.com/guide/best-horror-movies-of-2020/ Many of those have socio-political commentary (one of them is literally a horror parable on the American-sponsered genocide of Mayan people in Guatemala), and I've noticed that on IMDB, any movie with socio-political commentary gets downvoted by right-wingers or uneducated burgers who think some leftist Hollywood smugs secretly try to deceive them. Like, it doesn't even need to decidedly leftist, once it gets political IMDB reviewers have a knee-jerk reaction against it like "leftist agenda ruins my creature flicks!" and stuff like that. "I was expecting to see a horror movie but what is this, the plot makes no sense!!" This actually confirmed that most average right-wing normies are probably, generally, very stupid people. They don't understand anything on a meta level and even if they had an IQ that entail the comprehension for it, they will just pretend not to see or hear it in a pathological way.

is it worth migrating to cuba? 02/03/2020 (Mon) 15:11:18 No. 5914 [Reply]
Is it worth it? I here they take political prisoners but surely they won't mind a tanky would they?
It’s a nice place, but it is not worth it unless you’re the child of Cuban immigrants. If you’re the child of Cuban immigrants then yeah move back and be with your family and have access to healthcare and a college education that’s awesome, but if you’re not then you’d probably be happier being with your family.

/cars/ Anybody else in the bunker enjoy cars and motorsport? Discuss anything motoring related here. To start I'll say I've spent the last few days doing the brakes on my own car, including new calipers. Fucking hard work on an old POS, nothing comes apart easily.

How do I subtly inject anti-capitalist ideals into my Starfinder game? Players know I'm a commie so it has to be very subtle. Any ideas?
I approve of this idea however this belongs on >>>/games/ comrade. They actually have some good threads about games with communist ideas that you can find ideas for. The basic rule however is that you have to avoid using the words communism or direct socialist symbolism (hammer and sickle on a red flag) because most people shy away from that like a horse from fire. Something clver I've seen is using small uncited quotes of various socialist leaders and theorists and having characters state them in appropriate situations as a subtle commie-pill as well.
Add Stalin as a playable character, and give him the mission of purging all of the Space Kulaks.
