>>19773 Y E S
Some people see 1984 as an anti-communist screed and to a certain extent, it is. It was one of the first salvos of what would become the "totalitarianism" meme, a Cold War attempt to try and draw comparisons between the fascists and communists who, before that point, where seen as two inherently opposed and contrasting forces, basically night and day. And some of the communist influences on the book are undeniable. "Big Brother" is described as a mustache man with piercing blue eyes and handsome features that's clearly a reference to Stalin (and perhaps Hitler), Emmanuel Goldstein is clearly Trotsky, people call each other "comrades" and so on. But these things are mostly surface level. Some boomers still believe 1984 is set in Russia and is a more or less accurate depiction of the Soviet Union, but it's actually set in London, within a larger superstate called "Oceania". "Oceania" is basically the British Empire merged with the United States which then conquered Latin America. And, importantly, it was ultimately supposed to be less a screed against fascism or communism, and more a prediction of where Britain was heading, at least in Orwell's eyes. And that's why it's worth looking at. 1984 is a very Anglo dystopia and ultimately an exploration of Anglo culture and politics. Maybe the most telling aspect of Oceanic society in that regard is the "Anti-Sex League". If nothing else does, this should tell you that this is about Anglos, it's not the Germans, Italians, Russians or Chinese who are notoriously weird and prudish about sex. But there's other things. Even though the name for the "Ministry of Truth" was likely inspired by Pravda ("Pravda" means "Truth" in Russian), everything else about it was inspired by Orwell's time working for the BBC. The Party pushes "newspeak", a heavily abbreviated, terse form of language more or less engineered to be thought-terminating. "Stalinist" propaganda was nothing like this, it was notoriously verbose, often belaboring the point well past redundancy. On the flip side, "newspeak" had already been more or less an Anglo tradition by the time Orwell had written the book. The United States loves its acronyms so much, it's become a thing to just refer to federal agencies as "Alphabet Soup", and British tabloids are often have headlines like "BOJO'S BREXIT BOOM". But the thing central to liberal society more generally, but Anglo states in particular is "doublethink" and the idea of having an evolving narrative where the past shifts. With "doublethink", you have people being presented with two contradictory pieces of information, and accepting both as true. This might be most exemplified in their official slogan. WAR IS PEACE FREEDOM IS SLAVERY IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH

Been thinking about buying a dream journal and getting back into it.

Music Theory Anonymous Comrade 03/26/2020 (Thu) 15:55:48 No. 7411 [Reply]
I want to understand how you're supposed to play songs on piano. From what I've seen so far, you play the melody with one hand and with the other hand you play the chords, either as full chords or arpeggios. But how do you know which chords you have to play to fit a certain melody? I already know a bit of music theory so I tried figuring it out on my own. I looked up Katyusha on piano to see which chords are played. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5gMx_Yiut9w The song is in D minor, and they play the chords in this order: Dmin x3 Amaj 2nd inversion x4 (Db E A) Dmin x 2 Fmaj 1st inv. (C F A) Gmin 1st inv. (D G Bb) Dmin, Gmin 1st inv. , Dmin, Amaj inv. , Dmin. I assume that some chords are inverted so that the transition between them is smoother. They play the same melody on the right hand side throughout the video, but in the beginning they only play the root notes of the chords with their left hand, after that they play the chords in different ways, and then they play the complete triads. And this is my question, how do you know which chord progression fits over a melody?

Honestly a good example of musical practise routines being used IRL is Carnival of the Animals, as the entire suit builds up piece by peace with relatively simple patterns that combine into a wonderful cacophony.
Anyone practice Hanon? If not, I highly recommend it for piano players
>>7483 unironically this, just experiment with different chords/progressions until you find something that sounds good. Applying theory is a decent starting point, but it's not going make music for you.
>>7411 >From what I've seen so far, you play the melody with one hand and with the other hand you play the chords, either as full chords or arpeggios. thats called homophony, there is also polyphony when there are multiple melodies present at the same time and its a spectrum >how do you know which chord progression fits over a melody? the musical form determines that you can play any chord under any melodynote and it will sound good in the right context google: functional harmony, harmonization, jazz reharmonization, chord substitutions, common tone modulation, pedal point https://www.musictheory.net/lessons decent interactive lessons >>7411 >>7496 >>7515 >>7523 >and I think it sounds better with the Amaj. I guess because when a G is played in the melody over the Amaj it forms an Amaj7 which creates more tension. A7 not maj7 a dominant seventh chord resolving is pretty much the basis of modern western music, if you look at the intervals you will see that a tritone moves in contrary motion and the root is descending by a fifth creating our tonic as stable tonal center (which is a whole different magnitude of stability than the root note/chord in a modal piece) in order to achieve this in minor composers took the natural minor (aeolian) scale and sharpened the 7th scale degree (leading tone), they also tend to avoid the augmented second interval by sharpening the 6th scale degree

>>16472 Can this approach lead anywhere good? I havent studied music theory at all and have been just trying to play what keys go good together lol. So far it has improved my coordination and I can make some decent sounds. I just play different chords with the left and different notes with my right at the same time. However what Im doing is just playing either all white keys, all black, or a mix of black and white keys ive found go good together. Oh and I hold the sustain the whole time because it sounds better. I dont know how to transition between the three, I feel like theyre each a distinct "level" (donno the term, key, maybe?) and when I try to transition they sound off. How can I merge the three?

Stop consuming bourgeois food. Junk food, sodas (COKEacola), etc. are a bourgeois invention of the capitalist epoch made for addiction and profit that your body doesn't need. You must eat organic food, drink water and more natural alternatives. You can produce whole foods at industrial scale. It's just cheaper to separate the parts and recombine them synthetically because porky likes profits and doesn't care about proles (if anything sick proles feed Big Pharma so it would be in their mutual interests). The "MEME" of organic food was not a common thing, but the actual concept existed. Organic producers rely on natural substances and physical, mechanical, or biologically based farming methods to the fullest extent possible. The USSR did just that. They didn't have cow pens where they would be raised in a 3x6 cage with shit running down their legs, or chickens that were kept in rigid boxes with their beaks set to a constant supply of food. Cage-free, free-range eggs are "organic", compare their contents to that of a GMO chicken. The latter gets pumped with so many hormones and live in such squalor that the egg products are in and of themselves tainted by this. Meat wasn't *'Pink Slime' but the real deal, which is why, after Gorbacehve fucked it up, there were jokes about Sausage meat replaced by toilet paper. Communist countries didn't call their food industries "organic" - in non-profit driven states, there is no incentive to have cheap harmful food and expensively modified, slightly better versions of the same. all food was "organic" and affordable to everyone. just to give one example, dairy products weren't stuffed with preservatives to the point where a yogurt bottle can stay on shelves half a year or so, but were refreshed each 24-48h. Pesticides used were often tobacco based or otherwise natural and therefore far less harmful than the frog-mutating crap used in California or other places. For more detail see the food section of https://www.quora.com/Did-the-Soviet-economy-work-at-all/answer/Chuck-Garen >muh GMO is just conspiracy Monsanto is a massive monopoly that exerts massive pressure on the scientific community and economy to push its products through. This is capitalist self-interest for it to push that shit onto us. Organic food is more expensive so only the middle class and bourgeois can only eat like this everyday. If you think they wouldn't do that, then read Upton Sinclair's The Jungle, about how they canned rat corpses, rat shit and rat poison along with the meat being sold to ordinary people. *https://www.quora.com/topic/Pink-Slime

This is an asinine thread. Culture isn't static and should not be. If anything, the bourgeois ideologues have only not gone far enough, if even possible for said bourgeoise, in forging the new culture. In addition to creating new proletarian culture, the Soviets rewrote fairy tales to remove feudal and patriarchal elements, sometimes without even being subtle about it. For example the princes and princesses are replaced with Soviet administrators and humble peasants. And That doesn't even go to Soviet films, for example, 20,000 Leagues, which has even stronger, the original having a little already, antiimperialism themes. Link rel, the famed Chinese writer, took old tales and told them in service of revolution. There are many films, to give more examples, that have been appropriated, too, by LGBTQ people to be used for the struggles. And obviously, there's the retelling of Exodus by the enslaved Africans to serve their journey towards their liberation. https://www.marxists.org/archive/lu-xun/index.htm If there is ever a revolution, this only will be developed even more, because all culture must change in tandem with their society's base.

Holy shit, I've rarely seen a movie as on the nose and blunt in its critique of capitalist society, and yet Americans seemingly cannot comprehend what it's a criticism of. I've seen "It's about authoritarianism" "It's about the death of free market competition" "It's secretly about socialism!" Holy fuck, how can it be possible to be as retarded as burgers? It's like unless a film blatantly jumps up and down shouting "CAPITALISM BAD" they literally can't parse out any form of symbolism or allegory at all. Why are these people such idiotic apes? The writer/director was literally part of the South Korean Socialist Party, tf is the dysfunction in burger brains?

>>19602 Reposting my rant about Wonder Woman: It paints the most revisionist picture of WW1 I've ever seen with the typical "it was all duh GeRMaNs fault, BrITaIN GOOD DUH" which isn't true. Everyone involved in WW1 was equally an imperialist pig and believing that the Central Powers were the worse somehow despite the "good" guys starving something close to 2 million German civilians is baffling and just modern western media/history trying to paint their winning side as the good guys. Not saying that Germany WEREN'T the bad guys, just that if you're gonna criticize one imperialist power in a pointless war you gotta call the rest out for it as well. I always see modern media streamline WW1 and make imperial Germans into basically 'nazies' even though those are two different time periods and screenwriters should actually read a book 'cause history is better at writing interesting and engaging tales than they are. Oh and also the whole "wonder woman" thing being shoved down the audiences throat with one of the most pointless and horrifying wars in human history into a consumerized, comedic, shallow-fem rights film that manages to make the superhero female lead somehow less important than the actual women who took part in the conflict. 2 Based takes about how Wonder-Woman is pro-imperialist trash - https://mondoweiss.net/2017/07/military-industrial-complex/ - https://www.aljazeera.com/indepth/opinion/2017/06/imperial-feminism-woman-170613101125222.html Also an interesting part is how in the posters (pic related) the tank Wonder Woman lifts is a T-28, a Soviet medium tank that was created 17 years after WW-1.

As society has moved forward from the 20th century, a proliferation of postmodern skepticism made a lot of old propaganda techniques harder to pull off, and so propaganda often has to be a good deal more subtle and sub-textual to be taken seriously. Interestingly, this seems to disappear entirely if and when the creators start promoting the supposed diversity in their casting, setting etc. Rather flagrant, chauvinistic propaganda can be fed to liberals directly, and they munch it all down, eagerly, if they've been convinced it's a "progressive" work because of diverse casting. Captain Marvel, which gender flipped an eponymous super hero and couldn't shut up about it, was a straight up ad for the US Air Force and didn't even try to hide it. https://www.defense.gov/Explore/Features/Story/Article/1775393/airmen-fly-higher-further-faster-with-captain-marvel/ https://thegrayzone.com/2019/03/12/hollywood-captain-marvel-movie-us-military-propaganda/ Now consider the following plot for a movie: >A man is chosen by God to destroy Satan, so God whisks him away as a child to a special hidden island where he is trained by none other than the Spartans themselves in the ways of becoming a warrior, but his training is suddenly interrupted by landing soldiers from the outside. Turns out, these are soldiers that accidentally found themselves in the island due to a conflict in WWI, and after the Spartans kill the soldiers except for the American guy who they can tell is good, the American explains the situation of the war to our hero. Realizing this must be Satan's doing, our hero follows the American out and into the broader world, which he is originally repulsed by. The weakness, the decadence... and how do they even fight in these civvy clothes? But, as they get into battle, the normal humans prove their worth as our hero's American buddy sacrifices himself in the fighting to stop the damned krauts. When the hero finally breaks through and confronts the German general, it turns out he's not Satan at all, but a proud soldier who loves his country. So who was Satan? None other than the traitorous, peacenik politician who was trying to put a stop to the war. Our hero kills him and saves the world from his vile machinations. Pretty ridiculous premise, yeah? Maybe an occasional chud or Kyle would like it, but the average lib would roll their eyes so far back into their heads that they would be looking at their own frontal lobes. BUT WAIT <A woman is chosen by Zeus to destroy Aries, so Zeus whisks her away as a child to a special hidden island where she is trained by none other than the Amazons themselves in the ways of becoming a warrior, but training is suddenly interrupted by landing soldiers from the outside.
