This thread is dedicated to the people on this site who play instruments for fun or dollars. Talk about your setup, songs you like playing, techniques, performance. Today I'm with my Fender Player Precision tryna figure out some Geddy Lee bass lines.

>>19205 But i already can feel my diaphgram already, i want to learn how to control and direct it to make my singing more powerful and smooth. Also every time I browse youtube they say some idealost crap like 'use your head voice '. Isnt all voice from the head wtf.
>>19213 >Isnt all voice from the head wtf. Yes, but it's resonance they're talking about. Bass singing you feel more in the chest. https://youtu.be/NnX9DlAQbnc
>>19216 I want to sing like the oldschool 50’s singers that sounded like guys with powerful voices like sinatra and all. I guess I’m mainly looking to understand the main concepts and get some tips that could instantly help my singing. Like in martial arts relaxation and whole body movements is a big concept. Just wondering what the main ones for singing are. I like practicing by diving headfirst and then getting the refining the basics down later https://youtu.be/VvjWl7lvrnk
>>19288 Woops wrong link, like this dude: https://youtu.be/VTSgGCgpeN0
>>19187 i also want to learn how to sing good, but my main problem is singing out of tune and i need help on that

>>17856 well most of its humor is from parody naturally arising from introspection of cartoon actions and logic in a more grounded world, so while the show always has a stern face about it the actual world is always funny because of the banality of both good and evil as a system that seeks to perpetuate each other to keep securing funding. People having passions and dreams in such a mechanically dream-crushing system is always going to be funny and/or tragic as a consequence.

>>19427 >The Chinese don't pollute to ridiculously disproportionate levels. They do, but it's being cleaned up and unlike the USA, they are developing and growing, so the amount of waste is expected. Still they're far worse than the USSR in many environmental regards. >>19427 >The idea of a feedback loop was popularized by malthus That does not intrinsically make it untrue or Malthusian. The bible holds lines that are similar to Communist theory, that doesn't mean Communism is Catholic or Catholicism is Communist. Positive and Negative Feedback loops are observed in biology and are undeniable. >Where did you get the idea that we are going to buy air 1) If you were a bit more aware, there is plenty of cynical humor common discussions that, after water and everything else is turned into a sold commodity, the next will be clean air/filters. FFS, even the shitty Lorax movie portrays this (also the Celestial Dragons from One Piece). It also has precedent in real life, given the toxicity of the current air. In India there are Oxygen 'bars' (pic related). >From movies No actually. My work is environmental science, and a common discussion for policies is the allocation of resources, with serious ideas about making water only a sold commodity to "reduce wastefulness" with discussions involving. Films and books reflect reality, not the other way around, The writings of Huxley and Orwell did not dictate the current progression of capitalism, they reflected the then future prospects. >Population and development would keep growing forever despite any imminent reason to stop Exponential Growth metrics come to a hard stop because of carrying capacity. If a species does not adhere to the capacity (or in humanity's option, raise said capacity), they will rocket up exponentially past it, and then crash just as hard, and given that Porky always benefits from crises, what do you think will happen? >The stuff you said is ridiculous and pushed by psychopaths No, it's reality, while everyone else struggle, Porky will sit high and dry, and use the strife and misery to profit more, to control more, to solidly make the lower-classes wretched, afflicted people who serve their own oppressors, forever. Psychopaths? Corporations and the 1% have no single face, but if they did, it would be that of a psychopath indeed.
>>19436 >with discussions involving *involving Air/oxygen commodification as a future concept. The easiest way to control someone is to not only control a vital resource, but also convince them that you control it rightfully, a la the head of Nestle, who stated that water ought not be free, but controlled (by corporations) all while Nestle is abusing water supplies far more than any city population.

Self Improvement Anonymous Comrade 04/09/2020 (Thu) 00:19:11 No. 8024 [Reply] [Last]
Hello comrades. ITT we talk about what we are doing to improve ourselves. I'll go first: I am trying to quit smoking. This is probably my sixth attempt but I am going to try and take it more seriously this time. I have been cutting down for the past few months and had gotten down to 3 cigarettes a day but when I tried to quit earlier this week I ended up buying a pack at the end of the first day and smoking the whole thing that night out of anxiety about quitting. I am a drug addict in recovery and this leaves coffee and kratom as the two substances I can use. The kratom seems to help with cigarette cravings or at least incentivizes smoking because I feel sick when I smoke on it. I might try NRT too. I am going to try and get back into running too since that helped me get off heroin the first time.

>>8024 have quit 3 times for 3+months at a time, what's worked for me isn't tapering down (that just means you spend more time in the day wanting a cigarette) and instead going cold turkey and committing myself to hour long /nightwalks/ for 2 weeks. After that you won't feel any sort of cravings just the occasional urge no worse than a sweet tooth. I've also relapsed as many times after 3+ month quits, having even 1 cig has been a guaranteed relapse for me - I'll buy a pack 3-5 days after the initial smoke and return to my former smoking rate 1 week later. Also if you haven't already, try not smoking when you are at work its a lot easier to not smoke at work than it is when you are at home doing nothing. You can also immediately go exercise after work with having a long enough break between your last smoke (16+ hours) that your lungs will be able to keep up with a strenuous cardio or lifting workout for an hour. Best of luck, it massively sucks. Gonna quit later this week I think.

yo so i guess i havent really listened to too much music from bands from this era or at least not there most recent releases part of it is to preseve the mythologizied part of them from my youth and to just say "that bands old" or what ever but this is not the point really as I'm sure many know brand new's lead dude said he did some stuff to chicks on tour way back when and like that's really just the tip of the ice burg in regards to this as there were so many allegations flying around at one point i just stopped i stopped listening it wasnt worth it any more i hate to sound sort of like a chud here but it was like when i was getting into leftism... i made a passing line about my admiration for a band in the genre (that genre being emo and pop-punk) specifically over me liking a non problematic band and this woman had the audacity to call me a "stan" of the sexual predators which i wasnt defending at all but it has made me not want to discuss music any more i used to play guitar every day and just like knowing that 1. I'm Older now and being a muscian dosent feel the same as it used to i used to feel cool i used to feel like it was empowering now i dont know 2. should we just be like "oh there cancelled never speak of them again" or should we be like a bit more aware of that trying to look into cases though the sheer amount of them all was so overwhelming im tempted to just NOT do that 3. is Music bourgeoisie ?? is it impossible to ""enjoy"" music in a "captalist society that exploits the common man's labour ?" i miss being able to enjoy music how much of that is from growing older and how much of it is becoming more informed of "problematic elements within your music taste" it's weird cause like despite my awareness of other things being "inherently reactionary" i have still let myself enjoy them un affected by my turn to leftist politics in some cases turning them into a new way to direct my political energy I'm usuaully willing to duke it out with these sorts of people who are also apart of my leftist circles with everything but music or specifically this sort of music i even have gone so far as to start embracing international music so i cant be accused of "clearly this artist is a misognist" cause if i dont know what the words are saying then i cant be "doing harm to women and girls" like that one women said me liking this genre did

General Collecting Discussion Thread: Bourgeoisie Edition Anonymous Comrade 10/28/2019 (Mon) 22:56:53 No. 1744 [Reply]
A thread dedicated to the discussion of collecting stamps, coins, weapons, military awards, etc

Do not buy items from sellers on eBay if they do not have an excellent reputation. On the web-site you can find copies of coins and badges that cost $10 each but people sell them as originals, so you are not safe even when buying cheap items. There are also web 1.0 style forums for professional collectors and dealers, like this one
they are quite good and many people on them have decades of experience in collecting. These forums function like auctions and they are also very useful if you want to find out for free if your jewelry/coin/whatever is fake, or just take a look at people's collections.

Found this gem of the old internet yesterday. https://www.aladdincentral.org/library/index.php It's rather interesting to recall how there used to be so many independent forums being made by different fandoms for their fiction and discussions. narutofic.org for Naruto The Quidditch Pitch, mugglenetfanfiction and hpfanficarchive for Harry Potter and Apartment 402 for Evangelion. I feel a certain nostalgia for the old internet TBH.
>>8812 Moe lolishit As a straight dude, I hate that as well.
>>16228 There is a similar Naruto fanfic called Dragonfly by pecollia where an SI girl is reborn as some Uchiha and knowing what Itachi will do decides to live her next decade to the fullest before accepting demise. It was both frustrating and emotional

>>10275 Sorry I missed your response and didn't reply. 4 months late, but whatever >OVA Seriously? What was it called? >a huge improvement over the kind of novels marketed at teens in the eighties True, but somewhat debateable. The quality rose with Star Wars EU and other stuff, but generally 80s paperbacks were more interesting than stuff from the 2010s. >for example ? >ost of the cartoons I remember were canadian, from the same company that made Totally Spies Ah, that might be it. I mean Canada had some banger shows, but a lot of it was cheap trash because budget constraints. I still remember Kid vs Kat and other stuff like Totally Spies (pic related). Good times. >Star and the Forces of Evil, Adventure Time I'm going to be honest, those are both terrible shows, and while the latter is defended by fans to th death, Star & Marco have been lambasted for years at this point, as has LH and other cringe. The 000s had A LOT of good stuff, but because it wasn't exported well, you probably didn't see it, stuff like Ben 10, ATLA, Generator Rex, Kim Possible Danny Phantom, Rocko's Life, Recess and more. In the past 5 years I can't name a single childrens show that I would be comfortable letting kids see or bother with. It's much easier to turn on old TMNT and other shows and let them watch that instead. >Americans got into anime very late and with bottom of the barrel tier shows. That's true, but to be fair that was the most popular product world wide, along with a lot of other things >GiTS That was popular in the USA, but it's an adult anime TBH
