After thinking today and reflecting about how helpless I feel without my car, temporarily as its being repaired, and without my phone, temporarily as its being charged, an insight really does occur to me: I'm not quite 'myself' anymore due to technology. I feel as if part of my body is gone when something isn't working. A phantom sensation... I guess? I know that I'm not alone.

I'm curious about you all, though! I want to expand even more and ask about the future, too!

True, but you also get to roleplay as a lich



Tech lich soulbox!


>Do it over the span of years, and it's a bit easier.

I don't really see why that should matter. It'll make the resultant person FEEL more like the same person maybe, but that's never been the issue. How can you tell if you really are the same person, or somebody else with the memories of the other guy and delusions of still being them? That was always the problem, and if it's just a delusion at this point... well, all you've done is made the delusion happen easier, and for the person to commit their piecemeal suicide with less worry or resistance.

The funny thing is this isn't even when things get actually weird. The more you pick at this problem, the more you'll notice certain completely tacit assumptions being made, and how they fray at the edges. Keep pulling at that and they unravel quite nicely.

I got a pickup at a low rent apartment complex late this morning - an unusual woman's name.  I got a message with the apartment building and number.  After a few minutes of searching, I found it and messaged back that I was outside.  Several minutes later, a large 30-something black man came out and got in the car.  He was going to work about 15 miles away at the one-stop-light town at the interstate access west of town.  No problem.

So I pull out of the apartment complex, turning to take the most efficient route, and he tells me to go the other way.  You sure?  Ok.  So we start taking the less efficient route.  Immediately he gets on his phone and starts calling someone over and over.  It goes to voicemail each time.  We take another "wrong" turn at his request.  Now we're looking for whoever he's trying to call, at several of the other apartment complexes near by, because he doesn't know which one is the right one.  somewhere near the Goodwill.  or a smoke shop.  We circle around looking while he keeps calling, but no luck.  Eventually, he says ok - let's go to the destination.

Now this man had an incredibly thick rural black southern accent.  So thick that I had difficulty understanding him at times.

He asked if I had light.  Yes sir - I turned on the dome lights for him.  But what he was really asking is if he could smoke, and "yes sir" was his cue to light up.  So now he's smoking in my car, in which the windows were rolled up.  I roll the windows down, and I decided to not make a big deal out of making him put it out, because I was planning on calling it a night after this ride anyway, so I can deal with a cigarette.  It's about a 20 minute trip.

So we start heading through town, and he starts calling another number.  I don't know if he's on speaker or just has a super loud phone, but I can hear everything.  He calls a woman/girl.  He calls her baby.  He pleads with her.  He asks why she keeps hanging up on him.  He asks why she's acting how she's acting.  Each time.  And each time, she replies back "sir", says a few words blowing him off, and then hangs up on him.  and then he calls her back.  over, and over, and over, pretty much the whole way.  And each time, she answers, blows him off after he says what he's got to say, and hangs up on him again.Post too long.

>>1059294  Not something I'd be willing to try.
>>1059316  Mid-trip cancellations used to be a huge problem.  They've mostly solved that issue on Uber.  (I don't drive for Lyft.)  I had a girl once who did something similar, minus the crying, and she made me promise to get back in touch with her.  So the next day I sent her a "Hi, I was your driver.  You asked me to message you.  Hope you're having a nice day!", and that was the end of that.

Do you find it easy to separate art from the artist?  I've always found it pretty easy to do, and in fact I can even go so far as to appreciate the artistic qualities of a work whose author and whose message I despise.  (Video related: I hate everything about the murderous Communist regime who produced this music and whom it glorifies, but I can still enjoy the work for its musical qualities.)  But I've heard some people find it difficult to separate art from artist, so I would also like to hear more about their perspective.

I don't get this communism meme.

But for separating the art from the artist. I think it's possible, since almost nothing is made by one person. But it's a different story when money is going to that person. Especially if money means that person has an elevated status to do whatever the bad thing you are trying to separate is.

What is being conveyed in the OP song is not unlike what is communicated in many marches. While the lyrics have their own meaning, largely what one takes away (especially someone who doesn't know Russian) is an inspiration of strength and grandeur that transcends ideology. Sometimes multiple messages are conveyed, and the message one hears may not be the one that the author intended for them to hear. I'm of the opinion that miscommunications are valid.

Sometimes the message is more complicated and background is helpful. Sometimes the author is meaningless.

Well guys, I'm finally gonna do it. I'm finally gonna watch the Harry Potter movies. All 8 of them, over the course of October.

I will finally be able to lay to rest whether or not these movies suck untainted by the cloud of childhood nostalgia. I will update you on my progress in this thread. May God have mercy on my soul.

With all of this quarantine nonsense, it's so weird, but I just want to like... hug a friend in the flesh so bad.

I don't really know the people on this website that well, but... yeah... I'd like a hug.




Also: Everyone, have this artwork from an artist forum thingy and maybe it'll cheer you all up a bit, love the artwork.

You can only become as successful as you believe you are capable of being. So know that you are capable of everything and you will succeed at anything you choose.

As much as there are memes about their sponsorships and I don't know how good it actually is as a mobile game,

I'm already at my first impasse.

Alright, so the arbiter sent out an elf, an orc, some lame wizard, and a knight to fight on a quest.  The elf one shot an orc, then the wizard one shot four knights, and then the elf got eaten by a dragon. Then the rest of the party died.
Turns out they were only three star units, so the arbiter is letting me only pick one to revive.

Who should I pick?

Just a few days until we hit the spoopy time of the year. Though considering what a year we had it almost feels a relief to have something understandably scary instead of outright terrifying.

Anyway, Jump on in and talk about whatever is on your mind

Monday is cruel. Tho it's not unsurprising, but if I inform that it was surprising, perhaps I can get the day by surprise..
The expected efficacy of this is on par of trying to startle a wall clock admittedly.

I'm watching Ghostship. I forgot how brutal it is :twi1:
24 posts and 13 image replies omitted. Click reply to view.


I used to think that the Ring remake was a decent movie, but upon rewatching the first part on Youtube, it was way more cheesy and campy then I remember and almost reminded me of the scary movie parody.

I still count Ju on as probably the scariest movie I've ever seen. The remake The Grudge doesn't come close to recreating that.


It's a crossover movie that uses the lore and established continuity of two separate franchises long before Marvel pulled it off. It manages to fit into both settings without forcing either to act out of character.

I wish they had gone further! Created an entire Slasherverse. Plans were made to crossover with Ash from Evil Dead, but that never got off the ground. It was eventually made into a comic, but it's not the same.


A lot of excellent films have already been brought up in here, like Poltergeist, The Thing, Jacob's Ladder, Babadook, etc )and yo, Insanimator, extra points for mentioning Triangle), but since I do probably watch a few more of these than many of you, imma chime in with a few. I am not good at picking total all-time favorites of most anything, but still, some do pop back up on my head more often than others.

There's The Changeling from 1980, for example, which I personally consider my golden standard for a ghost story. It's a prime example of how you don't need to subvert or reinvent classic tropes to be effective - you just have to be skilled at your craft. This has all the tragic backstories, old mansions, stuff that moves around when you aren't looking and so forth you can imagine, and it's so freaking creepy. It has one of my favorite séance scenes ever, and the ghost's backstory may well be one of the most tragic... not to mention the excellent poster, which is basically just a drawing of a wheelchair covered in cobwebs. So goddamn effective.

Moving up a little over a decade, we have Candyman, which I won't lie and claim doesn't at least get a little extra spooklove from me because I HATE bees, heh. But seriously, aside from Tony TOdd just being an amazing villain in it, Candyman also takes on a metafictive lean by asking wether or not the fact that urban legends exist automatically grant their stories some layer of truth. Which makes the last three or so minutes of it extra annoying when it throws that out of the window but oh well. It's still an excellently scary flick.

In more recent years, I'd point to The Autopsy of Jane Doe as a great one. Ain't nothing pleasant about an autopsy, and here we have a particularly fucked up one. A movie that basically has a maximum of four characters, sets up a situation that gets scary simply because things aren't the way they're supposed to be, and then just continues to escalate without ever letting up. Great, great stuff.

There's also stuff like Oculus (and honestly, ANYTHING Mike Flanagan makes - as far as I am concerned, he is a modern horror master), A Quiet Place, Get Out and Hereditary I really liked over the last few years (though the latter is definitely an acquired taste, I've met plenty of people who can't stand it. Diff'rent folks and whatnot).

I try to watch a lot of horror movies I ain't seen before in October, and I am aPost too long. Click here to view the full text.
