This ain't a fucking sob story. I'm genuinely fucked in the head so fuck you guy. I am judging you back as a patronizing asshole  :argh!:

Boo fucking hoo.  Would you like some cheese to go with that whine?

Now, if I actually believed you, I'd say something like "Talk about a pathological inability to take any sort of responsibility.  It's not your fault.  No, it's the bad gore sites.  It's your (probably self-diagnosed) mental illness.  Nothing's your fault now, is it?"

But as it is, you skimmed right over Faust's far more sympathetic reply in order to answer me.  Gave the game away a little bit, with that.  Work on your fishing technique, son.  It aint 1993 and this isn't Usenet.

I used to be good friends with a guy from the usenet culture, he was tuned in, knew what's going on with people being led this way and programmed that way, but when shit got real he tucked tail and ran. Please don't leave me convinced that's symptomatic of your generation. Do you still live with your mammy too?

I do Cain. I live with my mammy.

And that explains you going all Michael Richards how exactly?

Not sure what Kramer has to do with this, I didn't see any goons heckling my jokes.  :)

:tldr2:

NIGGERFAGGOT!

Ok, again, more plainly.

What exactly were you expecting from this thread?
What is it's purpose? What do you get out of it?

Also have been browsing liveleak bestgore and other visual trauma sites every day for hours straight for some reason. Coincidentally these sites are hotbeds of racism and rabid nationalism. It has put me in a tortured headspace. Out of the blue I remembered about this place and had to have a big ol bout of mental vomitus/diarrhea, like walking into a hospital and sicking up the place.


Your mind does not exist in a bubble, it is a machine. It reacts to the inputs you give it. If you seek out gore, you're filling your mind with stimulus which will help shape your outlook.

I did the same until I really upset myself. Then I stopped, and I was a lot happier for it.

There's nothing quite like people who don't have a problem telling people with a problem that they don't see the problem. :lol:

In this case it is a bit of a sticky one. The artist does lots of porn, lots of porn with a bit of sci-fi, and some sci-fi . In his porn he can draw as many asses in the air and people wont complain. Someone's not going to read his illustration of Story of O and say; Hang on, THEY'RE OBJECTIFYING HER.

It's very weird that Marvel chose to use him for to market this.

though, can someone answer the question of how someone, male or female, could do the Spiderman "i'm climing a wall while pantomiming a spider" pose WITHOUT looking like they're sticking their ass in the air?

Th problem isn't the ass in the air. Milo Mirana does ass in the air well. It's that they used an erotica artist to draw the cover on an issue that is otherwise not erotica. For sales.

i had been avoiding this story in the news, mainly because i honestly didn't see what the problem with it was. I feel like the video makes a few good points, yet towards the end the nerdrage shorts out his frontal lobe and he starts hammering his points like a caveman. Towards the end he charges right past the fact that sexualizing woman is OFTEN used to dehumanize women,

How do you tell the difference though?

And really, this hits on the big thing. The problem isnt sexualization, its the dehumanizing, the objectifying. People like to go after the former because its easy to spot and thanks to our puritan heritage lots of people have a knee-jerk discomfort with it which of course, is completely in the interest of progressiveness and freedom ect when they do it. The later is a lot harder to talk about, a lot harder to condense into 140 characters or memes, and worst of all most people just simply dont care.

You're right, it is the objectification and not the sexualisation that is the issue.

For instance if Milo had written the book as well she would probably fuck her way across new york and no one would bat an eyelid.

But using his cover for what is otherwise supposed to be a superhero comic is using that sexual imagery to sell the story which is unfair to the character.

There is always the argument that marvel never considered it, Milo is a brilliant artist and comic companies often celebrate the work of famous artists these variant covers and that's all it was. However even if this is the case they probably shouldn't be so negligent when they are very much in the spotlight for their lack of female creators, (they have one or two, which is better than none so things are improving).

Why is lack of Female creators a bad thing?
Because comic book readers gender is split pretty much 50-50, though the female creators only account for an a tiny set of the creators.
In theory this shouldn't be an issue, a skilled male creator should be able to cater to a male and female audience (and some do). In practice, you get a majority of comics who's target audience is young men.

Which its female readers apparently have no problems buying.
You hear a lot of complaints, but yes I suppose you are right, if they are buying them, they are supporting that, although conversely if they vote with their wallets, then people can argue women dont read comics.

Also the problem of proportional representation is a secondary trivial one compared to the fact that superhero comics are almost entirely stagnant stale stories. The few that have found ways to explore interesting new things tend to do so though science fiction where the superhero part plays an insignificant role.

Principia Discussion / Re: The Discordian Society on Facebook
« on: September 19, 2014, 07:32:48 am »
"The Discordian society 2014" has interesting stuff posted on it but it's not as active as it could be.

"The Discordian Society" On the other hand is barely readable, drowned by idiots and Ha-Ha-Hilareous ironic Misogynist shit but has a lot of members, some of which are intelligent and interesting but didn't know where else to look.

For the latter I only join it for short bursts before it becomes too banal I leave it, I only have a certain amount of time in the day to read stuff online, I don't want to spend it scrolling past that garbage.

Ok sure, that makes sense. But realistically, if you are working security in a US school, where shootings seem to occur with alarming regularity, which would you rather be packing?

Well look, in for a penny in for a pound. All US teachers should be wearing nerve gas vests and deadman switches rigged to their heartbeats.

It's the only way to protect the children.

I can understand why they made that choice though - in any game where any sort of choice is available, the costs for voice-acting quickly spiral out of control, as you have to multiply the responses at the very least to match the number of options, if not more so.  I also suspect Bethesda were hedging their bets on whether this would be a success or not, and once it proved to be popular, were more willing to cough up extra money for it in the DLC.

But voice-acting in RPGs is definitely a tricky one.  I'm OK with not having a voiced protagonist, so long as the options to express character are there in the dialogue options (like the original Baldurs Gate, for example).  But having a voice definitely helps, especially if you're taking on a character with an established history and background.

Its been actively detrimental to some series.

Final Fantasy 10 went with voice acting and small dialogue tress, and it worked really well. Sure you don't REALLy effect the story that much, but the story was so strong it this factor is negligible.

In fact it's one of the few games that has a wonderyears style internal narration, and instead of cheesy it really helped develop the protagonist.

But then all of the FF games that have come since then have abysmal stories, so you really notice how your absence of dialog choices has you on a rail road.
Its the number one reason  I never want to see a remake of ff7

The Knife of Dunwall was excellent, I actually preferred it to the main story arc, for exactly the reasons you mentioned, corvo is a plank.
The voiceless protagonist in FPS worked in Half life because the dialog you had from NPCS was a little tongue in cheek. It worked in skyrim because you can respond with your dialog choices.

But every chapter has many people talking to corvo about beak and serious stuff, it kind of pulls you out of the immersion when everything is awkwardly phrased so as to not get a response.

The Brigmore witches wasn't quite as good but I still enjoyed it a hell of a lot. The funny thing is I didn't realise it was Michael Madsen until I was watching the credits on Brigmore, he is a excellent voice actor.

Literate Chaotic / Re: Comic Reviews and discussions
« on: September 17, 2014, 01:10:55 pm »
I've been meaning to get back to this thread for so long.

Good God.

Hrm. His (excellent )neonomicon had some really grisly bits in it so I'd expect the violence to remain consistent.

He has a much dryer sense of humor then Garth Ennis so I really don't know what to expect from this.

Now I am conflicted, I didn't like crossed but I enjoy pretty much everything of Moores, in fact the worst I can say for his stuff is I found the Century volumes of League of extraordinary gentlemen a little anticlimactic after the black dossier which remains one of the most creative uses of the medium I have ever read.
