[JW02 ~ 04/16/2020] A thread to post and request good documentaries on the variety of subjects. I'll start with some choice docus on ancient Egypt. All are selected for quality of presentation, study of subject as well as absence of current year agendas, we wuz kangz niggers etc. Romer's Egypt (3 episodes; 1982) and Ancient Lives (4 episodes; 1984) – the finest and quintessential ancient Egypt presentation; a soothing, in-depth look into ancient Egypt’s life and culture. It has that unmistakable classy 80s look that elevates it above the rest. https://www.invidio.us/channel/UC4gF7P8JKlJ9xAz8MF6AhFw/videos https://www.invidio.us/user/xinistri/videos Egypt: Beyond the Pyramids (4 episodes; 2001) – somewhat similar to Romer’s; not as in-depth or classy but still an enjoyable watch. https://www.dailymotion.com/search/Egypt%3A%20Beyond%20the%20Pyramids The Robot, The Dentist and the Pyramid (1 episode; 2020) – an excellent amateur documentary about the latest attempt to explore the shaft of the Great Pyramid. https://www.invidio.us/watch?v=rhsddHgybTo Immortal Egypt (4 episodes; 2016) – despite being modern and hosted by a wommyn, it surprisingly manages to somehow avoid the current year pozz and is very much watchable. Probably the best HD series on the matter.

HAIL COLUMBIA WASP America's Faustian Spirit was still alive for the glorious launch of the first space shuttle in 1981. The country had seemingly recovered from the tumultuous 1970s and was reaching into the cosmos. What is disappointing about this IMAX documentary is the frequency of "non-IMAX" footage. The shuttle did not have an IMAX camera aboard, so all space footage is sourced from NASA's still photographs and their grainy video cameras.
If Adam Curtis started entertaining reactionary ideas, his projects would resemble Every Angel is Terrifying This short video essay is made by tech chameleon Riva Tez, in connection with a planned city project called "Praxis". This video doesn't promote a new city as much as the concepts of vitalism, values and virtue. As with Curtis' work, a major hook of this video is exposing the viewer to secret knowledge unknown to the masses, which is introduced by the stock phrase "If the news is fake, imagine history." The fake history in question is the works of ancient writers like Seneca and Marcus Aurelius, texts that curiously lay undiscovered until several centuries after they died. Can we trust texts discovered closer to our current time than the supposed time of their creation? Admittedly I haven't studied the history of philosophy and I'm not going to dump Seneca's works just yet, but I'm interested to investigate this subject in more detail. At any rate, it's a thoughtful, engaging video that promotes a positive approach toward the future. This format has great propaganda potential and it's not hard to duplicate. You just need a collection of interesting film clips paired with strong, well-written ideas, including some completely unorthodox claims to blow minds. https://inv.riverside.rocks/watch?v=FECyn_sGk4M https://youtube.com/watch?v=FECyn_sGk4M In the course of writing this review I discovered that Riva Tez appears to be one of the high-IQ trannies Steve Sailer has written about -- not quite as trad as it first seemed. But it's interesting how these Silicon Valley types seem to have ample spare time to glean knowledge from old books, a la Curtis Yarvin

>>2934 >Can we trust texts discovered closer to our current time than the supposed time of their creation? That's one of the factors in the texts of Nag Hammadi and the Dead Sea Scrolls, both discovered more than 1500 years later (aka last century) and the latter being handled by jews with a bias against the content itself. The thing is comparing it to the actions of the people in their eras, sometimes things get easy and past things reference stuff found recently, sometimes things get murky. The content of those texts i mentioned is controversial because it really gives weight into Jesus Christ being much more related to the mystics of Asia in his 20-year gap and the philosophers of Greece than the isolated Son of God in the Levant area that one day returned to get baptized. Religion and possibly the entire western culture of the last millennia would've probably been quite different if those texts had stayed inside The Book, even antagonists like Simon Magus were a massive pain for the church despite his story with the apostles being passed as oral tradition in certain parts of Europe. But that second image is deceptive, indeed we live in a very recent era (in context of the entire known civilization) after the greeks started working these social values and, most importantly, after being able to write them and past them to the next generations. Thing is we live in another very new era, modernism/post-french revolution was a massive event that changed how things usually work, we are talking a paradigm almost on the same level of Jesus and His behavioral teachings coupled with His philosophy contemporaries in Athens, or the fish-guy Oannes who came out the water to teach Sumerians about societal systems. The "evidence found" might be closer to coalburner psyop girl than greek man but perhaps the work was found before the era of changing shit up from ancient feudal order/holy strongman in throne to scientism and new world order, or like some call it the ancien régime. And depending who finds it and how it is presented we can discern part of how they want us to check it aka bias. Still it seems the video does acknowledges this factor anyways, might as well finish it before writing more. >planned city project called "Praxis" Articles about it paint it in two extremes, occultist "tech bros" wanting a state in the mediterrean to gay IT dudes wanting diversity near the beach. Perhaps a video manifesto is their starting step. Pairing tech-centric bros, trannies, Nietzche and planning a city which is not planned but developed over time perhaps the concept itself of the video/project, as a city is build and done by its citizens' practices aka Praxis, citizens move to a different place and can make a similar city but a city lived by a different group becomes a different place, hence planning and incentivizing the practices of a city is planning and incentivizing the practices of a man well then, what is a man!? all these sounds like full-on veiled satanism but admittingly a very interesting idea to entertain, particularly because the work does seem to preach the opposite. >History is fake Quite sweeping, perhaps refocused into a narrative but not quite fake as a whole. Either way finding a really, really old source text almost contemporary to the source event is still a key hence why jews hide the oldest bibles under a bunker if not downright destroyed. Some others have old traces found by accident, some Plato and Aristocrates texts from before 9th century were found in places somewhat foreign to their origins, one in hidden christian gnostic from 2-3th century and the other i think as stuffing paper inside a mummy or something related in Egypt. Very puzzling how and why the creator is a tranny, i end up with that statement: London-born, San Francisco native, she-dude who is a tranny... why? it seems counterpositioned towards the message of natural hierarchy.
>>2948 >>2934 I don't quite understand why certain stoics being fake affects anything today. Maybe I need to watch the video again, but what is the sinister purpose of inventing such a fraud? The lack of heroism and nobility in our current time is not due to an widespread devotion to stoicism. I'm curious who concocted this theory in the first place.
>>2748 Glorious. Thanks Anon!

Animated Films you Enjoyed Anonymous 02/12/2023 (Sun) 23:07:08 No.2864 [Reply]
What are some animated films you enjoyed? I saw Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind a while back and I thought it was pretty well composed for an animu. I really like the comfy aesthetics and anachronistic technology. That said some parts were a little unbelievable like the princess beating eight men by herself in a sword fight or her dress magically changing from pink to blue. Also thought the giant's flesh sloughing off was a little bit gross especially for a kid's movie. What are some other animated films worth watching?

>>2864 >Yellow Submarine This was my first real introduction to the music of The Beatles when I was a teenager and always appreciated the psychedelic imagery. >Fantastic Planet Saw this one a few times over the years and appreciate the weirdness of it, although there's something about it I find depressing for reasons I can't quite put my finger on. I think it's the probably the dreary color schemes , gloomy landscapes, and sunless skies combined with seeing humans reduced to animals by their alien masters. >Felix the Cat: The Movie I wouldn't recommend it for adults, but it was one of my favorites as a kid and still find a lot of the worldbuilding to be really creative even if the movie is lacking in a lot of ways. >The Hobbit I haven't seen it since I was in elementary school, but I recall it being really enjoyable. Disney movies are an obvious thing to bring up, but most of my favorites have always been ones from before the Renaissance era like The Sword in the Stone, The Rescuers, and The Black Cauldron. In more recent years I've watched a bunch of Hayao Miyazaki's movies. I liked all his flicks from the '80s to varying degrees. Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind I remember being my least favorite but still could definitely appreciate it the one time I watched it. As far as other anime movies go, I remember having a positive experience with Vampire Hunter D and found Fist of the North Star to be pretty likeable. I've seen Ninja Scroll but don't think I was fully giving it my attention. >>2866 I'm not a big fan of Wizards, but I've always loved the rotoscoped look and the aesthetics of the villains. The whole patchwork mutant-Nazi-demon-Zulu-knight style of Blackwolf's army was badass. I always wished the good guys had a cooler gimmick instead of just being elves, fairies, and dwarves. I think the movie also might have led me to watching Alexander Nevsky too, so I'm thankful for that.
some of the first animation films I saw (that weren't derived from childhood cartoons) really made an impact on me because of how complicated and composed they were, I guess I was lucky because I only saw them fully back then and I can still see the films in my head. Some of them were Tekkonkinkreet, the Batman: Gotham Knight from 2008, Metropolis from 2001 and Skycrawlers. I might be forgetting some right now. There's also the eigth episode of Ghost Stories titled The Circuit Connects to Hell which is not as complex at all as the other animations but I thought it was a pretty good concept, it was so striking to me that for a long time I confused some of the scenes with Paprika, which I haven't seen other than a few clips. (FYI: this is the infamous American dub that is filled with jokes but I'm sure you can find the original dialogue somewhere https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x7xg0hf)

>>1422 Sad to inform that the video got a copyright strike and it's down... I managed to download only a 360p version from the YT editor because that's as high as it goes apparently (the original upload was 720p but I can't find the final rendered file so I might just have to do another video from scratch...) I found a decent copy of Shawn's Teatro 10 performance, but I'd love to find a better copy of the Amico Flauto broadcast since the only source I can find is a shitty Facebook upload.
>>2743 I was wondering where it had went - I thought you took it down yourself! Damn copyright is crazy nowadays, If you reupload it will it be on the same channel or a different one?
>>2908 I'll probably upload an enhanced version since I found better footage of some of the live sequences, but to avoid copyright I'll upload the whole thing elsewhere

Zoltan Fabri's Merry-Go-Round is a fine film but The Fifth Seal is objectively better. It's basically the difference between an 8/10 vs. the elusive 9/10. What was the justification for this choice? I suppose there are no wrong choices since favorites are entirely arbitrary, but I'm curious nonetheless.
>>2440 The Fifth Seal is a world cinema classic and deserves to be added. We could double up on other directors as well. There's ample room left. I was thinking Peter Greenaway - The Falls is a little different from most of his films so we could include one that represents his typical style.

Ghost Dance (Ken McMullen, 1983) Thanks to anon on the old board for recommending this free-spirited hidden gem that's composed of different segments riffing on the concept of ghosts. An early appearance by Derrida provides the film with philosophical inspiration as two actresses embark on a series of playful vignettes through dark corners of London and Paris. While I'm not a huge fan of "interpretive dancing", the film's climax includes the best example of this form that I've seen, mostly because it utilizes both symmetry and reflection -- the performer stands on a thin surface of water while beams and columns of a tunnel span behind him.

[JW15 ~ 11/16/2019] Lately I've been watching nonfiction content from the silent era -- found footage, documentary, early fragments. This excellent video from the Museum of Modern Art captures a lot of what attracts me to these films. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BBNwiPgknn8 >It's not so much being seduced by a story, it's the thrill of seeing in itself. I'm just disappointed that it's often difficult to find quality versions of this stuff. Watching anything potato quality youtube or even DVD doesn't do justice to the footage, and you lose the experience of time travel if you can't see clear details.

And to add to that, I guess there's also the "street urchin child gets put under the wing of a master criminal". For instance, in the earlier Total War games, your spy/assassin could get a child pickpocket ancillary.
