The left enjoys the glorification of soviet Russia, not simply because of communism and their positive Cold War relationship they have with it, but because it stands in opposition to Nazism. They have no clue or comprehension about whatever it is that is opposed to Nazism, but only that it be opposed; only that the PC effect is reinforced, nothing more. The mindless slapstick entertainment, which is designed to suppress substance, makes the acceptance of any and all forms of anti-Nazism more palatable to the low IQ masses. Add those melodramatic sentimental undertones of fake heroism that self-righteous idiots love to use to feel good about themselves, and they accept it with more ease. All forms of degradation and cultural ravages which occur are accepted as the costs.

People, just don't make any sense. First they are bashing Trump for collusion with Russia, and now they are glorifying and collusioning with Russia themselves.

Also, Russia is losers because they always have minor chord music, and live in poverty third-world conditions too. I saw that video of S.T.A.L.K.E.R., of them living in a basement, eating chicken like savages. And that is why they always lose wars.

Also, I hope noone here is russian, and I hope i didn't offend any russians, if any russians happen to read this.

Wow, he has the same exact avatar I had on ILP. Either he browsed ILP and saw it, or we think on the same wavelength.

from Cinefantastique Vol 27 No 4-5, page 64 [60MB]

The patriarchy, the patriarchy, the patriarchy has been under open attack for a long time....
The 1990s were probably peak comfort for the modern, white, last man type.

Yes you are right. But I think society exactly started sliding down the point of no return around 2016. After that year, everything started to become distinctly soulless and ghostly. Like some kind of spiritual attack on our souls.

I watched the new "MacGuyver" show. Distinctly soulless and modern. The hero of the show is a white aryan male with no emotion. Token black guy characters with 1 dimensional personalities. Angry feminist type women who are masculine and devoid of any emotion. Boss is a hot midget lady, also serious with no emotion. Definitely not a replacement for Richard Dean Anderson or Pierce Brosnan.

I notice a trend in these modern shows. Like the director is always hypermasculine with no feminine side. And there's always that "scene" that you just know the director framed the entire show just to lead up to that stupid scene. Like in his "mind" you know the director thought it was this amazing scene, but everyone else is just like, meh. It's all regurgitation without the director actually getting what the original shows were about. A hypermasculine soulless regurgitation. Heartless, has no heart in it.

Modernity in a nutshell: Shows with a bunch of super serious jocks, or super serious sappy feminist baby shower types. Like that new show they got, "God friended me". What an absolute bore.


You know society is going downhill when even black people are no longer funny.

Come to think of it, I don't think there was funny scene during Star Wars 7 or 8. I don't think I ever laughed at one point in the entire movie. I almost laughed during that scene were Mark Hamill was milking alien tits but I don't think I actually laughed maybe just grinned a bit. Rogue One is the same as well, I do not remember ever laughing at one point in it. No C3P0, no Han Solo/Leai funny moments, no glittery eyed Mark Hamill goofball moments. Just about as funny as walking through a cemetery.

I think I actually did laugh at watching a documentary of Star Wars 8, and seeing Leai stupidly flying through space. Anyway the same thing is with the Daniel Craig James Bond thing. Way too serious and jocky. Although at least his movies are still entertaining and have some funny moments here and there.

I know the new ghostbusters was supposed to be funny. But it was collosally unfunny. Although there was one joke in there that made me laugh. Same as the new Rocky Horror Picture Show. I wasn't a big fan of the first movie although I thought it was mildly funny. I turned on the new one, had to turn off after 20 seconds the acting was so horrid.

Oh forgot to mention. The new Lethal Weapon. Give me Mel Gibson not this serious modern automoton soldier guy. I want Mel Gibson back. I watch TV to see entertainers, not soldiers. If shows are about memorizing lines just let robots do it.

Finally someone understands what I was trying to say to others outside forums...Also feels like Nietzsche reference when Guts is called "Black swordsman " and in Zarathustra there was mentioned term " Backworldsmen ", a lot of small things...Shame this has to be explained by some randon anime weeaboo youtube channel

I would call this the best indepth analysis of the whole series so far, it's not even an interpretation, everything she says is spot on, what the creator was going for, berserk doesn't deserve that ugly M or A label

This is my current favourite movie reviewer.



It was in the sixties when all this began to be felt.

I always have the car-radio on, and tuned, until six-months ago, to one of the local pop, or rock stations.
It plays on the background, most of the time I don't even pay attention to it, unless some good song comes on.
Six-months ago I could not take the noise.
I switched from station to station and either old repetitive songs were playing, or the most current batch of pop-crap.
I came across a classical station and it's been tuned to it ever since.

A week ago, out of curiosity, I went back to the old pop-rock stations....and could not stand the crap for more than a few seconds.
I'm sticking with classical.

I'm now realizing that there's not much for me to watch on television, either.
I 'surf' the channels, from one shit-show to the next, from one sit-com laugh-track that cannot even make me smile, let alone laugh, to the next police-drama about the same propaganda romantic faeces, delivered in the same ways, with the same emotional triggers.
Yesterday I was switching from one to the next, and I came across the Grammy awards. I watched a while, curious to see what kind of music is popular these days, and what is considered 'good' music...art.  
I'm totally disappointed.
Nothing even approached coming close to being 'good'.
The same recipes, delivered by new faces, the same gimmicks, the same repeating themes...the same cRap hook, in the middle, jabbering on about the same bullshit.

The Dark Ages will not only be dark, they will be aesthetically unappealing, and degenerate.
No talent, whatsoever. Nothing original. The same Negroes singing the same shit, and with none of the original catchy beats.
Total mundane, dull, filth.

I stick mostly to poz-free/poz-lessend podcasts and load them onto a portable device + music/audio-book but I find that audio-books is something I can't listen to very well on the go because you will get distracted by things and then you miss parts of the plot.

Depending on your car radio you can also play such files through something like a usb stick. Or via smartphone+radio or smartphone+bluetooth speaker or smartphone+short-range-FM-transceiver to your car radio.

Depending on the commute time this can make sense and if it's not really a current affairs podcast you can put a whole bunch of podcasts and music on a device and play from it for many drives.

As for TV shows, I don't watch anything current besides some anime. It's not just a coincidence that anime in general, and in particular certain shows are understood by the younger media as right-wing-nat-soc entertainment.

My sentiments exactly.  If i listen to anything on the radio it's only a classical music station, and i only have one where i live that has held on for dear life amongst the monotonous drudgery of modern music cacophony. The 80s and 90s overplayed singles trend is something of a rampant sickness in today's culture for some reason. The endless indulgence in these 80s singles has become overplayed to the point of auditory insanity. Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Queen, Journey, all that annoying trash with their irritating sappy catchy idiot melodies and lyrics that every moron and faggot cant help but sing to because their minds have been helplessly programmed by them over a lifetime of exposure. I can't listen to them anymore, it turns my stomach. As far as the electronic/pop/nigger tribal club millennial music...i only hear they shit when i'm at the gym. I endure it only there, but i've learned how to suppress it through the intensity of exercise.

I prefer silence whenever and wherever i can get it. Nothing like being at peace with your thoughts.

The ubiquity of music is cultural weaponized sensory deprivation and programming. The inanity of hearing it in every public vicinity is a kind of Huxlean Soma effect for mass dumbing down. How many times does one have to hear the same overplayed songs before they start to question why they need to hear them all the time and why they feel they have to like them?

Once again, i share your feelings. It has come to a point of making hard sacrifices to preserve what is left of ones sanity and spirit against the onslaught of the decline. I lack any and all interest in exploring anything about modern culture or art or music, unless it is to observe its vileness. I live a mostly acetic neo-luddite lifestyle. No TV, and my screen exposure is kept to a strict limitation.

The more popular anything is, the more it is infected with degeneracy, generally speaking.

I certainly don't listen to radio. Best to just make a playlist of one's own music and put the phone in the car radio slot. The slav car radio lol.

I usually put on the radio just to observe and trying hard to comprehend that people actually listen something I can't even imagine listening on my own, at the same time feeling sorry anyone who can enjoy it and I feel like a bad person for not being able to be immersed/integrated in the illusion, same with the most new movies and other entertainment

I read Joseph Heller's book Catch-22 when I was a young man, and i found it hilarious.
There was another film made based on it which i saw and was not impressed.
I'm looking forwards to this new recycled version.


But I'm not holding high hopes.
This clown culture, lead by clowns and dominated by clownishness, can only recycle, each time warping the original with their clownishness.
I'm sure some Nihilistic propagandist absurdity will seep through to the final product, and like a tiny piece of turd in a bucket of milk....it'll ruin it.

Yes....why go for the more sophisticated overtly Christian and more rich mythoplacy of Tolkien's Lord of the Rings when we can go lower, still...adopting a feminine outlook, viz., a dumbing-down to the infantile level of binary thinking?
Let's go full retard.....no half-measures for this Circus world.

Who knows, as things are going the narrative may, one day, be interpreted literally by the ideal imbeciles of the coming Dark Age.
With no God, and no way to objctively determine which subjectivity is superior - or if any ought to be considered so - we may find the future full of imbeciles we cannot even imagine in our depraved age

Time for Hollywood to kill Tolkien. A side-battle culturally, against Europeans - Tolkien's status as a symbol of European ingenuity and art, the respect he gets, means he has to be slandered into 'advocating multi-culturalism', or maligned as 'snobbish', or otherwise discredited. At the very least, co-opted into some nihilistic pseudo-illness/depressive meaning to falsely affirm, and render null, the meaning to any tragedy.

I don't need to see it, to know it. The only alternative to those are giving 'superhuman' powers to him, to discredit the idea of an intellectual giant, to kill the esteem of his people. To say: "This is inspired by a Semitic God, granting an ability... Worship the Semitic God."

They're running out of ideas....because of degradation and dumbing-down - feminization.

They are now remaking old successful films, and comic-book myhtoplacy....placing their usual degenerate messages in all of them.
Every movie now is about LGTBQ advocacy.
Television is full of them.
Gradually they'll introduce the next 'liberated' paraphilia, e.g. paedophilia.

It happens slowly. First a few insinuations, testing the waters - then they adjust, or they wait, and produce propaganda after propaganda - social engineering at its finest.
This is how they normalized homosexuality and transexuality.

If races are social constructs then why not species?
Races, like breeds, are mediating stages of speciation. When you dismiss races and breed, you indirectly dismiss Evolution Theory, and offer nothing to replace it but emotion.

They are remaking EVERYTHING. Art has become fArt - see the dominance of cRap - and political-correctness has stifled all forms of honesty and masculine creativity, that there are no more original ideas of quality - now its all about quantities - see MARVEL and DC movies.
They'll go far back and remake everything, adapting it to the current victim culture and LGBTQ quotas, with the odd Holocaust reference in the midst of gay-love legitimizing.
It's a thorough mind-fuck.
Rambo is a relic - a dinosaur they have to reinterpret to fit into the current ideology - social engineering, and 'nurturing' for Modern Nihilists....Nazi eugenics for everyone else.

Haven't seen the movie but I wouldn't be surprised if they kill him off, as they did Luke Skywalker, to replace him with a Negro, or some woman....some daughter of his who avenges his death in up and coming releases of Rambo 4, 5, 6..., or something like that.

The season 2 of One Punch Man was much better than the first one, I think I laughed more in first 5 minutes of season 2 than in entire season 1

It was only 12 episodes so I rather read the manga than wait for season 3

The first episodes were good, humour and story wise, but the latter half was not much about Saitama or Genos. The "Vegeta" character tells more of a serious story.
Also, it's now not episodic as was season 1 but tells at least 2 main stories throughout the season and beyond. I liked the first half of the season, the second half changed a lot. I don't like long, drawn out battle scenes which take up whole episodes, which is why I like the -one punch- man. Unfortunately he has been sidelined a lot in the latter half.

I thought it's good that they give time for other characters time to build up and that's it's not only about Saitama since a lot of the other characters are interesting, I took a liking to Garos as well since the direction he went were not something I expected
Spoiler warning:
 
. A lot of things felt pretty clever the way they did it, like the tournament episode it could have been only about Saitama entering the tournament, but there's so much different things happening at the same time, so it keeps fresh and interesting, so it feels like there was a lot of thought put into it. So It's funny see all those high ranking heroes stay at Saitama's small house (who used to think they were so important)

I think the comedy is very clever (social commentary) the way it puts the characters in certain situations and way it makes all these heroes seem so proud of their titles and that they have to go through these institutions to be acknowledged as strong, all these low-ranking heroes seem genuinely wanting to save others, but higher the rank more full of themselves they become

Saitama being the the strongest being on the planet is overlooked just because he doesn't have as high rank as he should, because of many reasons, and people can't make their own estimation about a person, only thing they trust is a rank that is granted by some commission, it cannot be official in any other way

Also I didn't like Genos at first, but I think he serves a purpose, it's funny how he perceives certain situations

EDIT: Obviously they tried to make Saitama as a simple person as possible and make fun of certain clichés, but he doesn't like to talk if other person says more than 20 words in a sentence, so that's one thing I don't like about Saitama even if it's done just for comedy, because that's almost how most people are nowadays, they communicate so primitive it's shocking

Genos is autistic and ambitious, he wants to become more powerful. If I remember then his ultimate motivation is revenge on some cyborg who destroyed his village or family or something.
I think that if Saitama would lose his power somehow, Genos would quit being his friend, although he would probably always be loyal to him.
Saitama on the other hand has lost his ambitions because there is no challenge for him, not when it comes to physical strength anyway. At least that’s how Saitama portrays it, but I think that in reality this wouldn’t be the reason why he lacks motivation. He just gets through the day in the modern environment and looks for these artificial challenges like trying to beat Kin-g at video games (where he keeps failing) or one-punching monsters (where he always wins) because his daily life, modern existence, is not providing challenges he finds appealing. The highlight is hunting for bargains at the grocery stores.

The Garos story made me dislike most of the heroes and the hero association. Most of the heroes are douchebags who’s main redeeming quality is when they are sacrificing themselves to try and protect people and even then it’s that they are willing to sacrifice something and not the what and who for. Most do it for fame and fandom and protect mostly other douchebags.

I wouldn’t be surprised if the creator of the manga or light novel is kind of a Garos personality.

What I find likeable about Saitama is his honesty.

Shinchou Yuusha
An anime airing atm.

I hadn't watched the intro of the series but when I just did it reminded me of something.


The plot is described as an isekai (different world) genre anime with the protagonist of the story being a very, even ridiculously, careful hero.

What I think he is, is a pessimist who expects adversity from his surroundings and wants to be very well prepared. He achieves this through disciplined training and not letting his guard down, having prepared for the realistically worst case.
The humour of the show is based on his interaction with a goddess who is his guide/supporter. She is attractive and tries to seduce the hero at times, yet he is immune to her charms, or anybody's charms for that matter. He is straight-forward and honest to the point of being considered disrespectful, yet people depend on his strength and that creates the comedic dynamic. He is openly selfish where his objective is to save some alternative medieval fantasy world because that's the only way for him to return to his own world where he was summoned from.
