Nightmares don't necessary mean problems. Sometimes I dream awkward stuff and realize not until later what it meant, if at all. Yesterday I dreamed about some association were computer scientists taught undertakers how to operate computers, enabling them to control their incinerators.

Bumpity bump!

We decided to host another pictionary next week. Saturday the 8th of August 2015, 18:00 UTC. As always feel free to join midway through the game, it doesn't really matter either way. Everybody is welcome.

We'll use the site linked in this post >>25602. Hope to see you there!

Why does it seem like the word "otaku" is taboo these days online?

Not just on the infamous mother *chan, of course. Everywhere from tumblr to reddit to YouTube comments, everyone just spouts

At the mere mention or sight of anything anime-related. What happened? Do you guys care?

I hear "wehraboo" more often for that. Though it's mostly focused on people who go lengths about german/prussian military might rather than their general culture.

I feel like there was another thread on this subject here at one point. Anyway, I think some people are just way to hung up on labels and terminology, particularly young people. Like, fairly recently I was having this conversation with this 18-19 year old about music, and I mentioned that, among other things, I liked techno. Guy started flying off the handle; apparently, that type of music is called "EDM" now, and it's fandom gets massively bitter when you call it techno. I had no idea, I just like the drumbeats and the synths and stuff.

When I was first getting into this culture in the early 2000s I thought of myself as an "anime fan", on account of how the stuff I liked was typically referred to as "anime". Actually, I think the guy who introduced me to it called it "Japanimation". Then as I got further into it I learned the word "otaku" and started using that because I liked the sound of it. Now if I go around calling myself an otaku I get called a weeaboo. I can't decide if it means that anime and all related subcultures are becoming more or less acceptable within mainstream culture.

Really though I don't think it matters what you call yourself or what others call you, at least it stops mattering once you get past that teenage phase where anything you happen to be interested in becomes your entire personal identity, and you need words and labels to be part of that identity. Social media makes it worse too, I think, since having your internet identity inextricably tied to your IRL identity has pretty much eliminated all the freedom and anonymity this world once offered.

>having your internet identity inextricably tied to your IRL identity has pretty much eliminated all the freedom and anonymity this world once offered
It's not exactly something you were forced into. I've refused to associate myself with any social media on the grounds that I actually value my identity.

EDM is also a subset of techno. Don't assume kids know what they're talking about.

This pretty much. This particular behavior - willingly confining yourself within some identity label - started to gain popularity in post industrial societies because of desitegration of local communities. People don't really feel connected to those and as such they are left hanging with no sense of attachment. It's like getting thrown out into space and panicking because of lack of gravity (there's actually a word for this reaction IIRC but I can't recall it). And a drowning man will clutch at a straw.

Labels are pretty useful when trying to figure out your own identity and I don't think I need to explain why this would be of particular importance to teenagers (and even some young adults in cases of late bloomers). But if they don't match some definition it gives them a feeling of dissonance. It makes them feel anxious. Wanting to fit into the label (and thus the group) will make them deny their own beliefs and convictions. In an example that some of you might find relatable look at 4chan /jp/'s 'we hate anime over here!' policy. New people (who come over from /a/ most of the time) don't actually fit that. 'Huh, but I like anime?' 'No, we hate it over here.' 'But-' 'We HATE it over here.' And then anonymous hated anime (or at least that's what he said while being asked about it while still watching anime on the side).

I could jump straight to Fromm and rave on about how humans reject complete freedom because it's too overwhelming for them but I've gotten completely off topic so I'll just end it here.

This is part of what I don't like about the word otaku and people who call themselves that. 'Anime watcher' or even 'anime fan' describes an action. 'Otaku' is a much broader

what are some things that really bug you?
things that genuinely piss you off?

I thought it would be nice to have a thread to vent about any little annoyance, no mater how big or small.
Any and all complains about the world around you are welcome here!

This is an almost daily struggle for me but it has been especially bothersome today. I really just want instant food, but instant food is usually garbage. I really need to gain weight, but gathering and preparing everything is too much for me some days so I just live off of just enough.

My understanding is that in Japan a lot of the games the West knows as visual novels are called "adventure games", and that we don't typically use this term to describe them since adventure game refers to a different sort of game over here. Eroge, dating sims, and all kinds of things just sort of get dumped under the umbrella term visual novel, even though it doesn't technically apply. I know what you mean though, I start to grind my teeth whenever people refer to manga as "anime books".

Whats your favourite female anime character archetype? Twintail tsundere? Dandere with light-colored short hair? Oppai loli?

Mine would be girls with black hair, braids and glasses who haven't talked to a man in years.

I tend to like cute, spacey girls who aren't especially bright and have kind of an innocent, childlike manner. Yui Hirasawa (current waifu) and Osaka from Azumanga Daioh would be good examples.

Do you think jacking it when it's dry harmful?
Will I lose sensitivity?
I recently started putting some water on it for these cases but sometimes I just seem to forget about it
I want to have my penis as healthy as possible

Lube is only used by those people who got it mutilated at birth and now they don't have the foreskin to keep it soft and moist, but if you fap a lot you will get dry even if you still have it so it's a good idea to to wet it a bit so it feels better, slides smoothly and doesn't have so much friction
>> No. 27289 [Edit]
when your dry and the skin surface starts ripping then what do you do?
finnish in a flurry of blood, cum, pain and pleasure?
>> No. 27330 [Edit]
I'm cut a birth and I've been masturbating since I was 10. 100% dry all the times, no such problems. I cum way to fast though.

There was one time where I stroked it fast enough I burnt/damaged the skin on my tip.
>> No. 27361 [Edit]
Personally I've never jacked it any other way than dry, and I have never had any problems. A couple of times I've spat on my hands first but that's about it. Does using lotion or lube or something similar really increase the pleasure by that much? I've never quite been motivated enough to try, which I guess is kind of pathetic when you think about it. Anyway, no I don't see how jacking it dry is going to cause problems, unless you're doing it an awful, awful lot, in which case you might have chaffing or skin irritation to deal with.

I've changed my mind on this. I mean, I do like the word 'Berserk' because it emphasises uncontrollable destruction while forcing the body to ignore any and all pain, but I think I rather have the word 'Almighty' as it grants everything 'Berserk' status would but with so much more.

>least favourite word

>what turns you on
The female body. 2D, of course.

>what turns you off
3D, people, real life, unnecessary interaction, and pretty much anything else that bothers me.

>sound or noise you love
Depends on my mood, instruments (more like electric guitars and violins)
