Tonight or tomorrow night will probably be the last night this summer that I get to watch anime outside on my roof at night. There is something special to me about watching Japanese cartoons at night with the stars overhead and my garden surrounding me. I see meteors, satellites, bats, moths and occasionally owls flying around up there pretty regularly. A couple weeks ago I was watching Aho Girl around midnight and a pair of red tailed hawks flew by circling each other yelling and generally mixing it up a lot more than Wikipedia would probably say that diurnal animals do on the average night.
Next May or June I will watch more anime on my rooftop.

They say you learn something new every day. Let's see if that statement is true!

ITT post something new you learned today. Trivia knowledge is more than welcome.

I learnt the difference between noir and neo-noir.

Noir was heavily dependent on the era it was released in. It was a time when overt sex and violence was forbidden in film and technological limitations prevented the presence of colour however it was these very restrictions that caused noir to have the impact that it did. With those restrictions lifted, violence and sex have to be much more overt to have the same emotional impact on today's desensitised audience than what was necessary for the audiences of the '40s.

Neo-noir is an attempt to create the same impact that noir did despite the technological and cultural changes that have occurred since the '40s. Some believe that noir to be an inimitable cultural phenomenon that will only ever exist within the bubble of time that was present during its creation. Others have continued to experiment with the neo-noir genre and prove otherwise.

Personally, after watching Chinatown, I can safely say that I don't get it. I'll probably need to watch it again to get it though. Preferably with subs since I seemed to have missed most of the dialogue.

Yesterday I learned that x64 Windows has only one HAL.DLL, because the x86_64 is so standardized that there's little configuring OEMs can do. x86 versions of Windows have a few HAL.DLLs for the inclusion or absence of stuff like APIC.

Today I learned there are 100% Animal Crossing speedruns. They average for 70 hours but the world record is 63 hours. And the runners don't take breaks.

It used to be that if you google 241543903 you get images of people sticking their heads in a freezer. Now googling 241543903 brings up images instructing people to google 241543903 to see images of people's heads in freezers.

For years I've had the idea of making youtube videos, primary anime reviews. One of the main reasons being the slim hope I'd be able to at least make 'some' income off it as unlikely as that might be to happen. Well I finally took the plunge and went ahead with it. I wanted to at least get a few vids out before posting about it here. I should warn though that they've been pretty horrible so far and as such you shouldn't expect much. Should come as no surprise that someone who has very little interaction with people offline would have trouble speaking so the videos can be a little numbly, for that I apologize.

My channel can be found here for anyone curious.

That's true, also probably have to buy an expensive binural mic and make sure your background noise is very quiet. Perhaps it would be better to go after the 'unintentional asmr' niche of things that weren't originally intended to give tingles or that's not the main goal, but it still does. If you pretend like you aren't doing asmr on purpose, but make your videos relaxing, long form and about interesting topics people will tune in. Think Bob Ross for example, even though the focus is on painting, really you tune in for Bob Ross and his relaxing voice and general atmosphere. You could be the otaku Bob ross

I recently learned japanese and have been checking 2chan out lately. I have no reference to what it was previously but it feels more like what 4chan used to be with its own unique twist of course. I think it's the western culture and concepts of "memes", "shitposting" and more recently template posting that negatively affected the western internet in general.

If stuff like psychic powers count, then yeah, I used to be. When I was young I used to think telekinesis and whatnot were possible and tried to practice every day in the hopes of getting something to happen. Obviously nothing ever did. I never was into rituals and summoning and stuff like that, though. Just the vain hope of getting to move stuff and shoot fireballs with my mind.

I've messed around with it from time to time but I'm really lazy about it.

Occasionally I'll dip my toes in but I've never quite been able to fully turn off my skepticism which fucks over deeper practice. It's important to have in this stuff, otherwise you end up an unhinged schizophrenic, but at the same time it keeps you from achieving much.

I just slowly lost interest over time after getting frustrated with spotty results but that's what happens when you don't put much effort in.

Currently I'm studying other areas (philosophy, history) before returning.

A bit, but I never really went deeper than reading shitty websites about it. One day I'd like to read something from one those medieval-Renaissance era alchemists such as John Dee, Paracelsus and Mirandola. Blatavsky seems interesting too, as well as Steiner

Kenshiro and Guts.

I can't be entirely sure if there are more since my mind is as scattered as a box full of puchidol. I do know that I was definitely inspired by a couple more, but I feel that these two have definitely had a sizable impact on me.

My adopted grandfather, the only man left in my family with a clue regarding finances and frugality. His only major fault is having been so laid back, so hands off. So now nobody has a clue what they're doing.

While stereotypical, I really admire Nikola Tesla. The schizoid in me connects with his desire to just invent shit in his lab away from other people.

From history I admire a lot of people. Benjamin Franklin, Andrew Jackson, Caesar Augustus, Agrippa. There's more but they escape me at the moment.

Once a week, fill out the OP questions and let us know what you're up to!
Think of it as a FRIDAY NIGHT thread like on other sites, only you can post any day of the week at any hour of your choosing since NEETs don't have a schedule or any reason to look forward to the weekend.
Or, just a wordier and more demanding alternative to the daily report thread as a more relevant example.

I'll probably play Left 4 Dead 2 again but I hope I don't play anything.

>What anime, movies, YouTube channels etcetera are you watching today?
Anything that has to do with Sonic Forces, I've grown to like the theories people have about the new character, Infinite.

>Have you been listening to any podcasts or music today?
Not yet, no.

>Are you reading any manga or literature?
Only required readings that are as depressing and doom&gloom as you would expect them to be because old writers had a fetish for suffering.

>What're you going to have to eat and drink today?
I would like poison but a sandwich is nice too so it'll probably be that because i dont have any spare poson lying around.

Well in this case there's also an uncensored version that airs so it could be different timeslots have the censored vs uncensored version. In general the majority of censorship (light beams, etc.) get taken out for the BD, along with general improvements to QUALITY.
