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.
A novice of the temple once approached the Master Programmer with a question: “Master, does Emacs have the Buddha nature?” the novice asked. The Master Programmer had been in the temple for many years and could be relied upon to know these things. He thought for several minutes before replying: “I don’t see why not. It’s bloody well got eberrything else.”
>>531 That as indeed s pretty cool story

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.

>>770 Space Dandy is a parody of Cowboy Bebop iirc there created by the same person
>>897 You need to read the manga. This is why anime is inferior to manga. The manga is completed.
I've just started watching the Monster Musume no Oisha-san from this current season.
>>2462 Well, so far it's as I've predicted. There are many monster girls naturally. probably they'll end up as harem members. I like it's quirky moments that are here and there, I'll see what my final judgement of it will be.

Finished reading Parasyte some days ago. It was pretty neat but nothing to write home about. Now I'm currently watching Kaiji, I'm up to the episode after the second game where they have to walk over a thin rail. It is filled with asspulls eberrywhere, but even then it gets pretty thrilling

>>2336 Pretty generic answer but drinking coffee/tea playing some videogame that isn't that hard so I don't keep dying and sometimes eating something sweet.
>>2336 After a walk and while I’m walking I just talk to myself about random things making false arguments to arguments I’m probably never going to happen in the future and fantasizing about the future.
>>1852 >>1848 It’s also his feeling in the back of my mind that I’m going to lose eberrything one day and I don’t want that to happen.
>>2360 As the saying goes, the Lord give the and the Lord taketh away. In a sense you do lose most of eberrything when you die. You have to accept that and, whether or not you believe there’s something after death, live eberry day to as full a degree as you can manage. Cliche I know, but cliches become that for a reason. >>2351 Heh, I do the same thing. Sometimes I frame it as being a comedian who goes off the rails and just starts lecturing his audience.
>>2389 I personally pretend to be a politician on a news show who just breaks and starts talking against the network.

Doing comfy things is nice, but how about doing FUN and EXCITING things? ITT please talk about what you like to do for fun. Maybe we can even do some fun stuff together. Me, I like boats. I like swimming too. It's fun to be in the water in general, plus it's good exercise. I plan to get a boating license some time, although it's an expensive hobby.

>>2333 No they were fishing there and as it's not an official swimming spot it probably woodn't have been a good idea to go swimming. I drove to another pretty big lake after hitting gym yesterday and swam there with the setting sun, drove back with only the moon lighting the way. Feels good

I think cargo cultism is pretty interesting- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cargo_cult
>>1817 Years ago I remember someone posted on /x/ a drawing of a demon sighting looking a lot like the grey aliens, some occultist who's name escapes me. Maybe those are just supernatural phenomena we can't explain or maybe the human brain just likes to play tricks on itself. Who knows? >>1847 That's technically right but you're probably overrating what's being filtered. There are ways of interpolating info from what you know in order to prove what's observed and what's not aren't the same. I think anything we see that isn't reasonably associated with reality isn't too far off base.

Comfy films thread Anon 06/03/2020 (Wed) 11:57:21 No.1304 [Reply] [Last]
What are some comfy classic films you like? No hollywood ship please. For me it's Werner Herzog's films, he's a fantastic director.
5 posts omitted.
>>1590 I'd say it's a mix of both. Hollywood has had a way of compromising filmmakers' visions (for good or for bad), but they also provided the resources (financial, personnel, etc.) and an environment in which they can work.
>>1616 >but they also provided the resources (financial, personnel, etc.) and an environment in which they can work. Pretty much. Producers in many art industries fail to trust the vision of those they hire. They used to force laugh tracks into shows too (Peanuts show almost had to have one). You just need to find out to get the resources without the restrictions... From the page of Don Hertzfeldt's Rejected (creator of It's Such a Beautiful Day, neither is comfy but the second earned a well-deserved 100% on Rotten Tomatos): >A projector was purchased in an attempt to be able to view and edit the film in-house, but the idea crashed and burned quite literally in impressive plumes of white smoke - the projector was broken on deliberry. With no way to view any of the finished footage, the entire movie was instead spliced together blind, with proper editing sessions later taking place in the dead of night on the Warner Bros lot when nobody was looking.

Just finished watching Kick-Ass. I can see why this has/had a cult following. Something strikes home but I can't pinpoint what. Feels as it is a movie stuck in time. Wish I had this facility watching normal movies with human beings as with anime
>>1304 One of my all time favorites is brother where art thou, so many quotable lines, the characters are all memorable, and I adore the music. It's a nice old timey prison escape movie with a comfy ending, and I really just love the relationship between the three main characters. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bIR0CyW6-t0 The montage here is one of the best parts of the movie, its just so good.
>>2314 Maybe it’s the fact that it’s a normal person in a screwed up situation so you empathize with him.

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.

My latest sausage and pita invention. Improved on the previous one by cutting the bread instead of ripping it up. Also cut up some raw jalapeno and red onion for a crunchy topping. Sausage and beans are sauteed with garlic, chili paste, hot chiles and spices.
