Is it weird to have your laptop like this in bed? Like before you go to sleep or something. Not a great drawing but I'm drunk and not an artist either.

"Datte hontou wa crazy"?

I always use my laptop in bed (don't have space for a proper table/chair, and using it in bed is more comfortable anyhow) but I do it by propping a pillow against the side of the bed and the wall to support my back, so I'm still upright. The thing to be most careful of is to avoid blocking the fan vents, since I nearly had a laptop die from that once.

I got a small furoshiki to use as a bandana. It's in red karakusa pattern which looks rather generic so I don't think anyone will notice it's a weeaboo thing. Still, if someone recognizes the cloth maybe I'll look like an idiot to them, with head wrapped like a lunch. I don't know.
Furoshiki and tenugui come in many much prettier prints depicting all sorts of Japanese motifs: cranes, koi, cherry blossoms, landscapes and what have you, but I decided on these simple swirlies to keep as low key as possible.
I don't really need it, I was just looking for an excuse to carry some cute item from the Best Islands™ with me. I thought maybe it would cheer me up a little or something. I'm an embarrassing dumbfuck, just kill me already.

Fact is, sleep takes up a large fraction of anyone's life. Have a comfortable bed & a large fraction of your life is excellent.
Please tell me ways to improve the quality & volume of my sleeping.

I think part of the issue is that i spend an abnormal amount of time in my bed. Whenever I'm watching anime or tv or something I do it while laying down in bed, and a lot of time i browse the internet from my bed as well.
>> No. 29524 [Edit]
I've been sleeping on the floor for about a year now.

At first it was because my family got a bad case of bedbugs and we didn't have the money to buy a new mattress.

I started to like it so I never got a new one. It's actually not that bad. Tried to find some actual research on it but just came up with advertisements and bro-science.

I found a few things claiming mattresses are actually bad for you because they slowly wear your back down. Seems like it might be bullshit but i lines up with my experience so I've rolled with it.

Another great sleep aid is a program called f.lux. Takes a while to get used to but makes you want to go to bed at a reasonable hour.

I work 8 to 5 as an IT admin / web developer in the medical technology sector. The company has grown in the last years, but is still under 100 employees. Most of the time I spend with building web interfaces and managing databases, besides occasional technical support for my colleagues.

I quit my higher paying web job impulsively. Couldn’t sand the idiot CEO I had to deal with. Now Living with my parents again and working at a liquor store. I’ve noticed I feel about 100% better coming home from a job where I am on my feet doing physical tasks than coming home from a job at an office sitting all day. But I do really miss the money and my apartment (though my cat likes my parents house much more). I think I may need to pursue higher paying physical labor.

I'm having an august with yakuza eiga. It's an old passion of mine I had mostly abandoned in last years, but even after all this time I can still get into it easily. It's a genre with the most interesting history, in the 60's most yakuza movies were romantic and idealistic , in the 70's they started to be gritty and realistic, in the 80's the genre declined and in the 90's it recovered and turned into a receptacle of all kinds of cinematography, experimental, poetic, gory, comedic, all was allowed. I don't think there's an equivalent with any other gangster genre, yakuza movies had an incomparable production with hundreds of titles every year.
Also it's nice to catch all references that you can find in anime.

What do you think about reviews as a form of entertainment, and more broadly, mixing information with entertainment? What started out as a way for people to know if a product was worth buying or not has branched out into different genres of people stating and explaining their opinions on things which people consume not for their functional value, but for their own sake and because of cult of personality. There's no hard line between review, essay and opinion piece anymore. Siskel and Ebert might be an early example of this shift, were people tuned in more for their personality dynamic than to find out if they should watch a movie or not, but they were still called reviews. Redlettermedia pioneered the internet, video form of this, and now everybody in that circle uses variations of their format and jokes. Then there's stuff like that guy with the glasses, people who made things barely resembling a review, but called themselves critics. In written form, anime blogs were doing the same kind of thing. People eat it up.

I like hearing people talk about things they are very passionate about, that all i need from a review. I tend to like more personal blogs, i particularly enjoy the written form and don't care much for videos honestly, than professional reviewers.
>> No. 35072 [Edit]
A review in video format is a total waste of time and I see no reason to ever watch one. George Orwell, now known as a famous novelist was in his own time considered the greatest book reviewer alive. Just as he retired he wrote an essay titled "Confessions of a Book Reviewer" where he explained how and why he didn't even bother reading a lot of the stuff he reviewed. I highly recommend that essay and it is freely available online. It's a simple fact that if someone is financially dependent on writing reviews and pushing out content constantly they are going to end up writing some trash no matter how good they are. I think this is the crux of the problem.

I had a recurring fantasy of going to North Korea to seek asylum from the trappings of life in the west. Of course, they would probably either always suspect me or execute me on the spot, and North Korea has it's own problems. Why would they support me? They don't even feed their own citizens. Still, it's nice to think about before bed.

The problem seems to be that every country with welfare is going to make you work for it, you don't get it for nothing it's support while they make you get into the work force. I have to spend half the year doing ridiculous things like volunteer work or courses and if they find me a Job I can't refuse it.

From the J-List newsletter: "One of the more refreshing aspects of Japan is the laissez faire attitude companies take to certain aspects of Japanese copyright, specifically "doujin" or fan-produced works such as ecchi doujinshi comics that explore improbable relationships between characters, or other kinds of non-official creative works like music remixes and soundtracks and, er, anime onaholes. In the decades since the first Comiket in 1975, an odd tradition of allowing free use of copyrighted works has grown up, due to the fact that virtually every industry artist got his or her start making doujinshi, and the reality that every modern anime needs a healthy "ecosystem" of doujin artists in order to make a mark with fandom. When studios went to remake the venerable 1974 Space Battleship Yamato franchise, they understood the need to engage fans from several angles, including adding in fan-service and encouraging creators to make fanart using the characters. But now an animation studio is trying to stop these creative works: the owners of Love Live are asking doujin circles and shops to completely stop distributing products featuring their characters, citing Japanese copyright rules. Since Bandai also tried (and failed) to use Japanese copyright to ban Pokemon doujin works back in the day, I'm sure this new development won't affect things much, but it is kind of a disappointment."

I'm glad I never watched Love Live, nor bought any merchandise. Never will, now, either, and will inform others of why. I'll definitely never watch this anime, nor read its manga, ever.... considering how much money I spend on merchandise, they might regret it if this is a frequent opinion of people. Just, go away. Just, please go bankrupt, you fuckers... =_=

>there is fan fiction for sale of every single popular anything ever
It is referring to the legal sale of copyrighted intellectual property at events such as natsucomi. There is no Western equivilent; you cannot legally profit from fan-fiction of intellectual property for which you have not obtained the rights to, and therefore there is no market event for sales of such items.

I wonder if this is something the people working on the show support or not. It seems like the kind of decision that would come from higher-ups in the corporate ladder who are concerned about the "image" of their franchise. And why Love Live in particular? They own Idolmaster too but they aren't they trying to crack down on doujin works there?
>> No. 30248 [Edit]
You cant legally create fan-fiction. profit or not. Japan or west. But companies allow it, mostly
>> No. 35627 [Edit]
USA copyright caused this indirectly. When your copyright term is your life-time plus 50years, it's not sounding "temporary".
