animu thread Anon 05/02/2020 (Sat) 17:11:35 No.640 [Reply] [Last]
Post here whenever you finished watching an anime. I'm very new to it so I don't think I could fit on /animu/, less /a/, so I figured I may make a thread here. Watched pic related recently, it was very neat but I didn't like the ending a lot, seems like the rewards Chihiro got were too given at the palm of her hand there. Other than that it was pretty neat and reminded me to care about your friends.

>>1046 This anime is one of the greatest things ive ever witnessed. Dying and being reborn sounds wonderous, becoming something entirely different than what you once were that even your family woodnt recognize you. Just passing on to another place of existance.
Kaiji: Ultimate Survivor will always be one of my favorites. One Outs is good too.
>>640 Just finished watching Dorohodero. It was pretty good.

aight bros i just ended Texhnolyze. Probably the best psychological anime in a dystopian setting i've ever seen. Actually, i was asking myself if there is anything close to it stylistically; besides Lain, does anon know of any similar shows that deliver that same feeling of despair, slow paced but with intense scenes and lots of symbolism?

I recommend you watch Shigurui and Mononoke (12 episode series) if you're into psychotic levels of violence or Japanese ghost stories. Both look great and are 9/10 and 8/10 respectively.

Comfy Baking, Brewing, and Cooking Anon 04/26/2020 (Sun) 11:36:45 No.380 [Reply] [Last]
Baking, brewing, and cooking are very important hearth-building and health-building skills. They are a surefire way to make yourself /comfy/, Anon! What are you baking, brewing, or cooking at the moment? How is it coming out? What will you be trying next time? Is there anything you'd like to try improving? Is there something you'd like to learn? Maybe you have something you'd like to teach us? I tried some old things and new things today! Pics related are: >the bread I made earlier today; a simple white cobb loaf. This was the first time I was just able to make it from memory. It felt great to be able to just reach for the ingredients and go through the motions. As luck would have it, the prove went well and the slashes formed up beautifully. I was worried that the crumb inside would be a little wet but it turned out very nice with a good chewy crust. The loaf is wrapped in beeswax cloth now so I can eat it over the week. I'm considering getting a sourdough starter going but I don't know if I'm good enough to handle it yet. >my first attempt at glazing carrots Apparently glazing (which I have found out is different from caramelising) is a basic technique that even professionals find difficult to get perfect every time. I think my first attempt here had just a touch too little water and a touch too little sugar, though I reckon I got the butter correct. See how the finished carrots don't have an even glaze? They still tasted very good with some parsley and finishing salt. Next I'm going to try blanching with asparagus. >sous vide pork tenderloin >fell for the sous vide meme Yes, and I love it! Weirdly, the garlic I put on these pork tenderloins was stained bluish-green by the other herbs during the water bath, but they cooked down to a tasty colour during the two minute finishing sear.

What would you lads think about setting up a nice weekly movie/anime/whatever stream to get comfy together? I think it could be lots of fun and we could spend some nice time together.

>>851 If you were to do weekly movienights you should: >1st: Announce with clarity the time which is going out More here since this is a small board and I doubt many lurk here 24/7 >2nd: Announce it with enough space between event and announcement so that enough anons can notice it. An example would be announcing one week earlier, just to give an idea >3rd: Be clear about what is being streamed Post poster of the movie, title, subtitle, small description, so there's a better idea of what anon is getting into This was always done with movienights back on /bmn/, the brenaissance, and with /vg/'s E3 movie streams, so it's a good thing to take this into account.
Tell me when. I'll be there bro.
>>807 How was the turn out? Any plans to do it again? I wood be interested.

>>1879 I'm sorry anon, outside of one thread on this board i've never explored any of the other threads until today. Literally my entire time in cafe has been in that thread alone. If I see something like that again, i'd be more than happy to join.

Post Parables, Allegories, Fables, Koans Anon 04/30/2020 (Thu) 19:51:55 No.531 [Reply] [Last]
When my mind is troubled, I make a little story in my head to simplify my situation. When I share them with others, I never explicitly state the moral so they can take away their own. It's a very comfy thing for me, it's how I express myself like some people do with poetry or doodles. I think if more people made a habit or practice of it the world would be a comfier place. If any of you do something similar, or would like to try it, I'd love to hear what you have to say. Here's a little story I've been rolling around in my skull for a few years now: A long time ago, a man built a brick wall in a wild field. Those who walked past it would often say, "look at this great symbol of order in a disorderly world!" Many years passed, and the wall crumbled to a scarcely recognizable pile of rubble. Passerby would shake their heads and frown at the sight. "No matter how men may labor to assemble some comforting order, nature will work ten times as hard for ten times as long to return it to disorder. How tragic!" As the wall finally turned to dust, the earth sighed. How nice it felt to become that much more neat and round.
>>531 It might have been a while since you made this post but I have to say that that's a neat story Anon.
Hacker Koans became a source of educational humor among programmers: >A student was playing a handheld video game during a class. >The teacher called on the student and asked him what he was doing. The student replied that he was trying to master the game. >The teacher said, "There exists a state in which you will not attempt to master the game, and the game will not attempt to master you." >The student asked, "What is this state?" >The teacher said, "Give me your video game, and I will show you." >The student gave him the game, and the teacher threw it to the ground, breaking it into pieces. The student was enlightened.

Why does the world have to be so cruel to us? I just wanna have fun and post with anons in peace but they keep deplatforming us, smearing us, running fed ops against us etc. Even if the webring becomes a stable home now, we've lost so many anons and communities over the years that'll never come back. 8chan has no clear successor which caused anons to be splintered far and wide around the internet with little ways to get back together again. I remember back on 8chan in around 2015, on the board list the top 50 boards each had hundreds and hundreds of users and tons of activity. Now no boards outside of /cow/, /v/ and /a/ seem to have any significant userbase left and you can easily go days or weeks without one post on many of them. Basically the question is: How do we bring back the golden days? Can things ever go back to how they were?

>>842 It only costs a few dollars a month to host a small imageboard with adult content. Smaller imageboards are ideal because people take the time to express their thoughts in a way that's engaging instead of just firing off as many shitposts as possible since they'll be forgotten in 15 minutes anyway. In my experience the golden days aren't back but are now here. Anons are creating OC again. Newfags can't understand our memes or look them up online without lurking moar. Drawfags are actually drawing instead of just talking about it. Anons are making video games and posting progress again. They're making waifu AI, robots and AI that plays old SNES games. They're programming new imageboard software that doesn't run like crap and working on many other projects. A whole new imageboard culture is being created.
>>917 The problem is those niche boards are easy to disrupt. It only takes 1 dedicated troll to destroy any of them and every time it happens you lose more people. Image boards have died out because everything they did well is done better else where. Thanks to monetization people can make a profit off of what they used to go on image boards for fun. You can join a subreddit to get news faster and avoid all the twitter screencap threads.
>>917 >It only costs a few dollars a month to host a small imageboard with adult content. We don't even have adult content here. I believe /comfy/ wood be a perfectly family friendly board. >Smaller imageboards are ideal because people take the time to express their thoughts in a way that's engaging instead of just firing off as many shipposts as possible since they'll be forgotten in 15 minutes anyway. You're right, there's much less simply fishing for (You)s here. For having so few users this little cafe has achieved a lot; the best thing is that it still lives. The future is looking pretty great from here.
>>917 I think we can go become a full Forum board or something of that nature at this point. I’m not saying we should destroy the imageboard but we can go full legit because we’re relatively family friendly
>>917 You're crazy. Image boards are dying because there's no new blood to them. The most active threads on image boards are usually twitter screencaps these days. image boards went from being the river internet culture drifted on to being the life raft on ship reddit/twitter. >>1829 Forums are good for long term topics which need to be followed in order. Like someone working on building a tree house, you need to see it all. Image board content isn't like that and falls more in line with a social media feed where current topics fall away as new ones replace them.

ITT we discuss video games that possess the comfy factor. For me it's all manners of RTS games, taking time to gather resources and build a cool base is great fun. Driving games are cool too, I have fond memories of pic related (although I was pretty bad at it as a kid).

Driving games can always be considered /comfy/ They don't ask too much but at the same time you have to not be a bumbling retard. My only issue is that I seem to be stuck with the most formulaic and basic ones. Things like Wipeout or Asseto Corsa are more complicated for me when I just want to be chillin
>>1760 >>1765 Simulator games in general. In another thread someone mentioned Rollercoaster Tycoon, that was comfy. >>1780 >pic 5 Good taste, the City Lights add-on track is top comfy.

I'm a big guy 4 RTS games. They're my favorite genre by far. I really like tile-based puzzle games too. I also like early first-person shooters and older arcade-style action games, but those make me feel more tense than anything. As far as console games go, I mostly stick with the older ones I grew up with and ones I never got around to playing. The NES is the console I find the most relaxing.
Interesting, i was about to make a vidya thread yesterday. My favorites are deadbolt and rainworld. Soothing soundtrack and comfy atmosphere, highly recommended.

Midnight Drinks & Snacks Anonymous 09/22/2019 (Sun) 07:54:55 No.734 [Reply] [Last]
There is nothing more comfy than midnight coffee with a light snack during some nightly watching or playing. I prefer quick sandwiches so it's usually honeyed and buttered toast, PB&J/PB&H, or bean toast.

>>1706 No, bread alone is just fine. It's easy to pick up, doesn't require any preparation, and it's spongy and crunchy enough to feel great to eat.
My favorite is bismark donuts or chocolate cheesecake with almond milk.

Dreams thread, the /comfy/ awake in the sleep Anon 05/27/2020 (Wed) 07:38:01 No.1181 [Reply] [Last]
It begun with a small tale of an old man dressed in eastern clothes, how he described the actions of a hero who never returned. As he was speaking actions of martial arts and combat were in the background, sketches of them, until he names the title of the event entuthiastically, where the characters strike a pose and the art gets detailed in the middle of the screen. The last segment of it there was a map like thing, it showed the progress that was made in the story, the last bit the protagonist made was on a boat that was turned upside down, the bodies were floating under it. For eberry step before it, a small scene wood happen in the map, the last scene had the hero pushing over the giant baron from a cave and going to the coast to get to his their boat Before getting out of the sea, there were two demons protecting a pagoda thing in a berry abrupt cliff with a thin bridge. One of them had one arm as the wing of a dragon and red, he protected the door, the other one was green and had tenctacle like hair and protected the bridge. The villain in the tower always has a story of where the characters that dissapointed him are thrown to a pit where the character's mother died. it consists of a destroyed staircase where the way out is by jumping to the cliffs that have been separated. Many just end up falling to their deaths. And in one point, the red winged man gets sent to it, tries to get out, only for some force to slap him on the head and his skull to hit a wall and slides to his death There is also at one point a baron of hell like creature emerging from one giant hole, only his head is seen, but it's huge and hides the sun in a moment. The sky was dry orange and the ground was like the grand canyon. Imagine Mario Kart 64's Yoshi's Canyon with all the roads being small and falling from them sending to your doom, it was like that but with more highs and lows, a pagoda/eastern castle hidden between the mountains, and small bridges and ropes connecting small locations The appeal of the story is that it was narrated by anons from one imageboard since many years and as it went on it got expanded. story of one man who went to the island of twisted cliffs and canyons to get revenge at those who killed his mother. The visuals were similar to those old greek myth movies from the 50s. The character may've worn a torso armor that only covered his torso, and brown leather shorts, but he did look like a greek warrior from those movies with his hair curled and an absolute unit. Unrelated, I was stuck on a high tree at some point, like 20 meters tall. I asked a man down there if he could call the firefigters for help. I descended with a rope tight in my waist. When I got to the ground the sky was oddly clear, a colour combination between light blue and chrome. I came across an old man, we exchanged some letters and he gave me the name for a writer of a book. then I walked to the horizon where there was more light blue/chromed things, probably a city, probably a pier. probably a path in the middle of the water, probably a path with the waters next to it and leading to the city. Been a while since I had dreams like this, I think it's due to practising something I like to call "Musical Visualisation" where I imagine a setpiece, scene, or environment from the music I'm listening. This time it was pic related, I think getting to focused on Corona-Chan's journey is letting me forget the things I was capable or I am capable of.
>>1181 I dreamed I was walking through a mostly-empty mall, looking for work. A woman in her late 30s tried to talk to me by a kiosk; I moved faster, blew her off. She said something to the effect of, "I know that response. That's the response of a cheater." I hurried to my car out in the parking lot. She followed, tried to force her way in the driver's side. I stabbed her in the arm with my key. I woke up with the sense that I really needed to wash my hands, having touched her arm. Laying it out in text makes it seem worse. I think the core of it is dissatisfaction with where I'm at right now. I'm trying to take steps to shift things, but it's slow-going. I think maybe I need to fuck off into the woods for a week.

A highschool project where we were meant to mass produce guns with a 3dprinter, I made some drawing, turning back home there was a friend of mine in the car, I told him about my fav game, I was playing it on the way home, on the credits I started crying due to the music. I was in the back seat resting while playing it, then my mother appeared where my friend was in the driving wheel and I was in the companion seat, she asked me for money to purchase some stuff at the stuff. The credits were >You can't beat me, how do you make such a promise of never coming back >Yeah, don't count on it >No, wait, how am I supposed to murder you if you're gone >I think that will be for another time As the spaceship was flying outwards in the orange nebula I was crying, my friend said stop exaggerating, I told him he needed to play this game once in his life. There was an end credits song as well Before this, we were at school and we had to make a gun out of some chunks of iron, we were sent to the machine to make them, it was this huge arm with a circular saw on the end. many were using it or we had to wait for someone responsible so we waited for that on the tables, the room was white and the tables as well, the floor had light blue/grey tiles. A friend decided to draw a woman with a bull's skull, I decided to follow it. My drawing was better than his despite him being the most talented kid with drawings in the class. When my mother appeared on the car, she asked me for 300 bucks to purchase something at the store, it was in the corner o the cross of both avenues. She parked the car in front of an elevated red house, 30 meters to the store. I rested there, the night was soothing and the light poles iluminating in the dark made it even more comfy, I waited there in the night time scenery. Pic related was the credits song of that game, it was played with an electric guitar and looped indefinitely
I dreamed I was lying in bed and didn't want to get up because I had to take a bath and for some reason the only bath I could take was in a small pool inside my room. Then my brother (who shares a room with me) started asking me to go fetch a banana. I got up and when I tried to exit the room a tall, big nosed latino looking guy was holding the door close with a weird smirk in his face. His faces was kinda weird, sort of looked like the yellow gun from the movie sin city, but with brown skin. I dunno, weird ship. Spoiled pic because it's not comfy at all.
Out of interest, has anybody ever had some sort of half-awake dream in which you're supposed to take some kinda test, then you hear an annoucement saying you must pay attention to the dream, and after that see a bunch of weird flashing shapes before waking up?
