On the topic of doom metal, here's some Brume. Her vocals are beautiful.

I used to ironically joke about liking this album because I found Ice's lyrics so cringe and the epitome of that one guy who thinks he's deep (Life is a Fantasy, I Love You) but is…as shallow as ice. Basically, misogynistic frat music in the 90s. But now, I unironically dig the beat on his songs so much and can't stop replaying this album. Fuck me.

It's funny you mention Odyssey cause that's one of the ones I was actually looking into! I've always had a soft spot for the love that goes into routing Mario (and LoZ) runs.

Anyway, you're exactly right about that. GDQ itself is something I've been unsure of supporting for a while because of the way they handle… everything lol. It feels like it's just a snowflake hugbox at this point and meanies or people the staff don't like are not allowed!!! A shame that a charity event had to end up like this. At least the charities stil get their money though, thank christ.

I find myself generally enjoying what RPG Limit Break does, though I've never looked around to see if they have any drama as it's still fairly small compared to GDQ.

I'm playing civ III right now and i'm so addicted to it.
But i think i'm retarded because i'm always in negative gold and idk how the fuck to get over the stump, i did everything guides said to do, i reduced my corruption to almost a nothing, but i'm still in the negatives (like -100 negatives kek).
I think i'm around 850 AD? so yeah. The latest thing i unlocked is he ability to make banks. (It's my first civ game so i'm a babbie)

Switching to Mac Anonymous 1978[Reply]

My laptop is falling apart, so my boyfriend is giving me his old Macbook Air, so I have to get used to a new OS, help! I've been using Windows for more than 17 years now and my only experience with Apple was using an iPhone 4s for a year. Have you made the switch or are you bilingual? Do you stick with one OS? Do you have any tips and tricks for someone new to this? I mainly do stuff like video and image editing and internet.

Thanks!

Just use this simple guide I made:

I've been using macOS for like less than a year and once you learn the basic stuff it's really easy to get used to the rest.

That was really helpful, thanks!

So far I'm getting pretty used to it. I use BetterTouchTool so I never have to deal with the loud force click - tiptap left/right open in for new tab/refresh, two-finger tap for right click, and for dragging I use the three-finger drag from the accessibility settings. Other than the loud clicking noise, this touchpad is the first one I'm enjoying. I still occasionally use my trackball mouse, but it's getting less and less.

I'm really liking the terminal, I only used Putty before and hated it.

Don't do this, trust me. Just get used to using command.
Well hmm, like I said: I changed screenshot the entire screen to cmd+f7 and screenshot a area to option (alt) + f7 (and btw pressing space while you're at it changes it from an area to a specific window)
hmm what else? well I guess I have some other stuff but it's p much just for garageband and most stuff I didn't actually change so…

overrated because the plots and animation and everything are pretty mediocre

>I hate how no one ever talks about Daria , except wannabe edgelords
that's why no one talks about it except for people on tumblr. it's also a 30 year old show so theres that

Anonymous 2321

>>2317
Because Daria was before its time in terms of character and relationships. It didn't help that it was a spinoff of Beavis & Butthead so the target audience wasn't too far off from wannabe edgelords.

As a protagonist, Daria has a lot more flaws/human qualities compared to the other posts like >>2318 said, but she still has a place in my heart.

>>2319 It came out in 1997, that's only 20 years. There's another 1990s character here too, Scully. Oniisama e the manga is older and the anime is around the same time period. Metroid first came out in 1986.

I've been playing since the November release. At first I did the strategy of shaking trees everyday and doing all requests, and selling extra items on the market box, but I think I have a lot of bells because I don't really put any money into my camper. I only expanded it 2 or 3 times and haven't bought any of the paint jobs (except for the Rover one).

I hoarded leaf tickets to buy the KK Slider and/or Tom Nook chairs, but then I forgot to get them before the initial time period ran out.

I don't do anything special, just collect stuff, exchange stuff, sell extra things on market box, sell my extra rare things directly.

I've finished most of the 8th episode at this point and I have mixed feelings but mostly positive. I like the aesthetic and world, and would love to see more big budget shows in this sci-fi noir style but the story isn't amazing. I don't need all my media to be super self consistent but the plot holes/poorly explained bits are too numerous to ignore, and there's lots of mary sue moments that steam roll through previously established details the writers emphasized. I heard a lot about people hating the last few episode and I can see why, the big twist isn't handled as well as it could have been, but I'm still excited to see how it wraps up.

Overall still enjoyable and would recommend if you're looking for a fun cyberpunk romp but are okay with not having an incredible story. I'm enjoying it and may even rewatch it in the future, but if it doesn't get a season 2 I won't be sad. I'm going to check out the books too, I know they're quite different from the show but it seems like they'll still be up my alley. The first one at least, I've heard mixed things about the second and third book.

Are mangoes allowed ITT? Couldn't find a manga general thread in the catalog.

I read Oniisama-e many years ago and was bored out of my mind, maybe I should give it a second try.

I'd like to read more female oriented manga bc most of the ones i like tend to be borderline misogynistic. The only shojo I genuinely love is really short, it's Iguana no Musume by Hagio Moto.

Anonymous 2259

>>2254
DID YOU? Omg I just finished the anime and holy shit was it FUCKED. UP. I was crying episodes after - you know who- died, which incidentally in the anime they make it an accident while i know that in the manga it was suicide. I'm dying to read how it happened tho, I mean what took Rei to that extreme since she looked/sounded happy .

Anonymous 2261

>>2259

Yeah i vaguely remember that one of the girls that looked like boys had some serious family dramu going on with the other lead girls… tbh i find that type of character a bit obnoxious and unrealistic. The anime might be better, in the manga the drawings and especially the facial expressions were a bit ott, it was pretty but didn't feel like human beings.

The only part of the manga that i remember clearly after these years was when the poor girl was mocked for her reading inexperience, because that made high school me pick up some books lol.

I don't dislike classic shojo though, it's ridiculously charming having characters that are able to feel so intensely, it's like they'll break if you barely touch them and that's just beautiful, but the problem with that is that it can very easily come off as overly dramatic and annoying if your characters aren't human enough. And it doesn't help that to me the "girls drawn like boys" type characters feel super artificial and not human at all, they're basically reverse traps.

I just didn't connect with these characters, either i was too immature when i first read it or they're just not for me. But i liked the classic vintage sorority vibes and how educated and ladylike everyone was so i promise i'll give it a second look with an open mind.

Anonymous 2267

>>2261
Have you seen (or read the manga) Versailles no Bara? Same author, characters look practically the same (but one of them is actually a man, and the other one - main one, and funnily enough the one that looks exactly like Rei- lives as a man most of her life). Its very fucking good and not as"girly" as Oniisama E.
And yes, the anime was OTT as fuck. Sometimes to the extent of being ridiculous but what else can you expect from an old shojo lol

Anonymous 2293

>>2261
You should watch the anime version of Oniisama. It's seriously amazing and a very wild ride. The manga is too short to explore the plot that well even though the ideas were solid, honestly. The anime mostly follows the manga but with a LOT of new stuff added in and all of it is great.

Daniel Keyes’s Flowers for Algernon is a great psychological/science-fiction read. If you enjoy the true crime genre, Vincent Bugliosi’s Helter Skelter is also an interesting book.

Anonymous 1895

>>1894
Flowers for Algernon is very underrated and I think part of it has to do with that a lot of people are introduced to it in early high school or middle school…by its short story. I remember trying to explain to someone why I enjoyed it thoroughly and they were confused because they thought it was children's literature, which perhaps the short story is, but the novel itself definitely isn't and I'd say at the minimum should be categorized as young adult.

I'd recommend Josh Malerman- Bird Box is really great and a House at the bottom of a lake is excellently creepy. or Mike Carey - the Girl with All the Gifts is brilliant if you're looking for a zombie story. I also really liked Station Eleven by Emily st John Mandel, another post apocalyptic one. as is Justin Cronin's Passage trilogy. If you want something a little older, John Wyndham is great, especially the Chrysalids.

Anonymous 2285

I'll go for the whole Isaac Asimov history of earth. I've only read the cycle of the robots and the cycle of foundation by now, but I'll read the empire one soon and I'm sure it'll be good.

Everything related to the myth of Chtulhu is also really good.

I also really enjoyed Sweet Beans by Durian Sukegawa
