Are there any weeaboos who post here? Seen any neat jap stuff lately?
The emperor is retiring in a few months, that seems pretty exciting.

I like surviving relics from a different period of Japan like kissaten and such. There is a channel about retro vending machines that I follow. I also hope I'd have the chance to try cart ramen at least once in my life.

Same here, but I'll add even older stuff to that - temples, traditional woodworking, wabi-sabi, tea ceremony, etc.
All of these show a similar spirit, one of time being not all that important. Remnants of less hectic ages, when people could genuinely just go out and get by nicely. It's genuinely amazing and great that Japan actually makes at least some effort to conserve such things.

Indeed, I think it's an inherent part of their culture and identity and I do hope that it would remain that way. Compared to other countries that are so eager to shed their history in favor of progress. I am concerned however that this may change in the future as japan is becoming increasingly integrated into the globalized world. Even now a lot of the things you've mentioned have been reduced into an exotic and expensive tourist attraction.

I don't think we had a movie thread yet so I wanted to ask, does /tc/ watch movies? What was the last one you saw? Have any good recommendations or favorite genres? Do you like american, european or asian cinema?

The Banana Splits movie was okay, it had some cool kills which you don't see that much anymore, I don't know if gore-heavy media has went underground or is just out of fashion. Pic tangentially related. Gory horror movies are kind of graded on a curve these days anyway because of that, shame, they're some of the only 3D media that makes me feel. Willie's Wonderland is a RLM tier movie that was probably a write-off, these sort of things are just more prominent now because there is no bargain-bin for digital media.

The race thing doesn't have any sort of agenda, it's just corporate boardroom casting that want to have almost every race in the target audience be in the movie to feel included and avoid controversy, in most movies anyway.
>> No. 37878 [Edit]
Never played the game and probably never will, but I thought the concept was amusing. I also like seeing movies based on games, even if indirectly based on games. Maybe I'm a gluten for punishment, but it's interesting to see how they translate (or fail to as is often the case).

Maybe that's all there is to it and I'm reading too much into it. It's just that it feels really weird when it's not just say, an asian family or a black family, but father a pairing off of people who in reality likely wouldn't be together. Here and there isn't so bad but when there's so much of it, especially in one place, it really starts to becoming distracting and pull me out of the movie. It's like in old films where they had 30+ year olds playing kids and teen. It doesn't bother or upset me, it's just inappropriate and therefor strange.

Anywho, yeah I was surprised by the effects in the splits movie. I was expecting some off camera deaths, cut aways, maybe some dummies losing their heads out of focus at best. Hell, the first death with the over sized lollipop seemed like it was going to be that way, since they immidetily cut to the robot holding the thing with off camera screams, but then they cut back to the guy and double down on the scene instead. Similarly, the magic act where they saw the guy in half, it looked like it was going to just be some syrup on a fake looking blade with a bunch of screaming and nothing more, then they go and open the box...
Some of the deaths did look pretty bad though. Like the cliche death with the security guard who was somehow standing perfectly still with his severed head still balanced perfectly in place without dropping a bit of blood until he was touched. I've seen that done far too many times and it makes me roll my eyes every time. Although I suppose the detail did make up for that a bit.
and yeah, it was because of RLM that I decided to watch these. It makes their videos more enjoyable when I've seen what they're talk

I actually have a couple bags of sand, if anyone wants to know what they feel like. I went to the beach & brought home some sand (i like to keep it around just in case any of my potted plants get fungus gnats) and i realized I could make bags of sand pretty easily so I did. I image this is what anime girl's tits feel like, yes?

you defense seems to turn on the idea that OP is confusing because of your lack of reading comprehension and your extremely short attention span.
>> No. 30276 [Edit]
You're slightly right, but I see a loy of projecting. You confuse reading comprehension and attention with interest. The thread is written avoiding general writing conventions and board standards, to the point it's erratic: There is no title, the topic is presented only in the very last sentence, and the idea before it elongates unnecessarily.

How do I become a paid internet shill? People often seem to think paid internet shills exist, do they? I would probably be pretty good at it if they paid me enough. Who are they and how do I contact them?
sorry if this is bad
>> No. 29680 [Edit]
Thanks to the information provided by Edward Snowden, the existence of paid government shills that misdirect and manipulate political discourse on the internet was confirmed a while back. I don't recall any mention of how they picked up these people, though. The NSA and CIA scouts hackers in relevant colleges, so my only guess is that they'd do something similar for paid shills/trolls.
>> No. 29682 [Edit]
I've seen ads for entry level shilling on amazon's mechanical turk before.
That was an ad for actual political canvassing before.
The jidf as a particular example has both unpaid shills and paid shills, and in both cases it uses software to track the activity of the users (especially important for the paid shills, who were paid using a fairly complex metric according to anons who claimed to be paid jidf shills on a site which was confirmed (by the twitter feed of the actual jidf) to be shilled on).

This theme has been available on TC for more than a few years now, I see no reason not to keep it. It actually is the one I prefer to use myself. Similarly, when the theme "awesome" was made for a previous April 1st, that was simply added to the list and has been there since.

Are there any character archetypes you are fond of or would like to see?
I like pure girls with dark skin and light hair. The resemblance to gyarus while having a very different personality is refreshing and the dark skin adds an exotic bit of excitement with the personality making for a strong amount of moe. It's even better if they're busty girls.

Land. It would also be really cool to have something entirely focused on submarines in a waterworld kind of setting.
>> No. 37985 [Edit]
Oh, I don't know any land based anime that fits your description. Submarines are cool too.
There's a cool and funny air based anime that may fit your description. Aozora Shoujotai, I like it.

How about Soranowoto?
Maybe the upcoming Girls Front Line anime?
There's also Valkyria Chronicles, which has mixed gender armies.

Soranowoto and Aozora Shoujotai look interesting. Something that feels grittier would be good. I guess there isn't much of a market for that kind of thing.

I find it absurd that some people think you can just live without weapons. Can a population really get so complacent so quickly? You shouldn't be worrying about whether food or weapons are more important, having a weapon should already be a default assumption.
>> No. 37924 [Edit]
There's nothing natural about guns, a weapon which training to be good with takes a lot of time and doesn't necessarily carry over in a real fight, and which can't be consistently defended against.

>> No. 37930 [Edit]
I guarantee you if I went around with a spear you'd be horrified at how nasty it gets. Good luck defending consistently against a retard with a spear if you didn't train extensively with shields. All it takes is a few janky jabbings and the enemy gets all confused and then his stomach is outside his body.

Here's a new shougi site for english speakers to play together and an ai option. The interface is impressively clean and modern.
