I only force myself to wake up early if I have an actual reason to, however I don't let myself sleep later than 9am (originally 8am but then I started staying up later).

honestly the bedtime doesn't bother me too much because it is roughly the time I have been getting to bed to anyways, it's very rare that I make it up later.

I'm a little over 300 pages into Moby Dick and it's REALLY good.

There are an enormous amount of references to historical figures/events, biblical stories, and other authors/books that are mostly lost on me because I am not very well-read in that regard.

My plan is that when I finish the book I will buy my own copy and at some point go through rereading but with a highlighter to mark all the things I want to look up or read about.

I love the prose but I think it's funny how almost every sentence is what my high school english teacher would have considered a "run-on" sentence.

What be you reading, /oat/?

Hooollllyyyy SHIT.

I just read 100+ pages in one sitting to finish the book.

Although I considerably critiqued the beginning, once you are about 60-70 pages in it really picks up, and once you are a bit over 100 pages in suddenly it gets fucking great and THEN keeps getting better and better until suddenly it ends and I am/was just in awe.

I realized that the shaky beginning was essentially just establishing the most important characters and the early experiences of those characters so that the second half of the book could explore their adult lives in-depth.

I won't give spoilers suffice to say that the ending leaves a ton of questions unanswered however it's sort of like in that last moment, like literally the last paragraph, it hits you that all the mysteries throughout the book weren't what was really important.

I feel like there is a lot to mull over with the themes and symbolism and meanings in the book and I am eager to discuss it with people on /lit/ (many of them have likely read it, the author is popular there).

I read The Most Dangerous Game by Richard Connel, although I'm kind of confused because I got a PDF from archive.com that claimed to be the "full text", yet was 15 pages, despite the Goodreads page saying it is nearly 50 pages??

Like it didn't seem abridged or anything but I'm kind of worried that I got some horrifically shortened version??

Regardless, it was kinda meh, the message was very heavy-handed and not really executed well, the ending wasn't satisfying, the action scenes weren't detailed enough to be exciting, and the dialogue was hella corny.

It was like a 5.5/10, unless I actually did get a shortened version in which case I will have to read the whole thing at some point.

So Pokémon Let's Go Pikachu/Eevee is a remake of Pokémon Yellow?

I hope they don't censore the fact Team Rocket murders pokémon (and allow children to gamble). Or some of the grim stuff found in the original pokédex.

In fact, I hope they spook-up Lavender Town more. Like maybe give it a lavender coloured Silent Hill like fog to acompany the music.

I don't like how in gen1 Lavender Town felt grim and somewhat haunting which I liked but by gen2 it's all lullabies and radio towers.

I gotta temper my expectations; I'm already disappointed that it doesn't sound like we'll be getting later-gen evolutions to Pokemon available in Kanto like Crobat, Kingdra, Magnezone, Politoed, Bellossom, Slowking, Steelix, Blissey, Tangrowth, Scizor, Electrivire, Magmortar, Rhyperior, Porygon 2/Z, Hitmontop, Lickilicky, AND the Eeveelutions past Gen 1 (including my favorite Espeon).

For some I can understand, plenty of these Pokemon need trade items to evolve like Scizor or Politoed so preventing those evolutions is as simple as not giving a player those items. For Pokemon with friend evolutions like Crobat and Blissey, or move evolutions like Tangrowth or Lickilicky, it's way more suspect and extremely annoying they aren't added by now. FRLG had a very stupid mechanic back in Gen3 where friendship was a value and if Golbat or Eevee really loved you they just would start to evolve and then stop for no discernible reason just because.

I'm salty because these new evolutions for these Kanto mons won't break anything (if anything they improve Pokemon that normally see little use) and they're already going to be adding Alola forms for some ungodly reason.

>>42052070
People who are 14 now were born when Fire Red and Leaf Green came out. Their first Pokemon games would have been the Unova series, remarkably.

I'm interested in LGPE for a few changes, like Pokemon spawning in the wild on-screen rather than random encounters and the riding/following mechanic as well as trainer customization all look like a blast.

But I'm real hesitant about some other changes like no battling wild Pokemon and what looks like a simplified version of battling that's even easier that what's been the norm since 2002. People skeptical of these games have noticed things like no more held items for Pokemon and the infamous restriction of being disallowed from Brock's gym if you do not have a grass or water type Pokemon in your team. There's also talk going around that online support for battling won't be a thing, or will be required subscription to participate in, which is troubling as hell if true. Since the DS era online access has been free and XY also had what is undeniably the best structure for online support of all the generations.

I'm kinda suprise they're not including evolutions of Gen1 pokémon established in later games like Pichu or Steelix. Then again there isn't really a canon explanation why pregen pokémon could not evolve back then than they can now.
Does that mean if you leave your pikachu with a ditto, you'll get an egg that hatches into a pikachu, not a pichu?

Early gen Pokémon games had content that was regarded appropriate back then. Such as Team Rocket being known for terrorism and murdering pokémon. These days villain teams are about taking over the cosmos or making the world fabulous or something. Team Rocket orphaned a Cubone and maim Slowpoke for their own profit.

I doubt Let's Go will be an entirely faithful retelling of Pokémon Yellow's story (Team Rocket will perhaps be toned down in their bloody reputation) but I'm hoping the game wouldn't be such a "safe-space" as modern pokémon games go. I like it when Pokémon games offer some grim reminders of the reality of the Pokémon world.

For example for Gold or Silver, what if certain frequencies with the radio on your PokéGear gives cryptic messages. And when you address these messages to the receptionist at Lavender Radio Tower she will permit you to investigate the upper floors. Searching the offices and studios you'll discover the tower to be haunted by ghost. Using the SilphScope will identify the ghosts as pokémon who are unhappy for their cemetary to have been turned into a radio tower.

Given Gen7 introduce the concept of alternate forms and types of Pokémon, maybe Cubones mother in Let's Go will be a Ground/Ghost type Marowak similar to the Alolan form, but ground instead of fire. Or the very least give it a unique skin or model to identify it more as a ghost.

It wasn't ever intended to be racist. In fact the actor said he wasn't entirely comfortable doing the part but the studio convinced him to do it.

I don't think anything he did really came off as offensive. His character was likable and adorable.

I mean stereotypical depictions are going to happen in movies and TV because movies and TV are not real life. Characters are designed to explain who and what they are in a relatively simple way in order to advance a narrative and I feel that the character this guy played did that without making fun of the people he was portraying.

It would be like calling Hank Hill a 'racist depiction of white people'. Yes it sounds absurd but most of the people on King of the Hill are just stereotypes of white people.

But I'm okay with that because it fits the narrative. It works within the context of the story being told and it's not outright offensive. The show doesn't scream 'white people love beer and are ignorant and stupid' even though those are the main character tropes in the show, because they are characters, not real people.

I'm not a good artist, but my main issue is that I'm too slow. Making one black and white doodle can easily take me up to four hours, so even if I spent all day every day drawing ponies, I couldn't possibly do enough. And even that's not possible, because in addition to all the other stuff I should be doing I got a carpal tunnel syndrome from drawing too much.

I'm running a CYOA and hate to disappoint people waiting for updates. I should also be drawing for two smaller subgroups of the fandom. It would also benefit the fandom if I could make a youtube animatic about my Roleplaying Is Magic games, but it would need even more pictures beyond the ones I already have to draw. I should also work on an open source pony sandbox but I am absolutely horrific at modern coding due to my searching problems, making me the literally worst person to be doing it, yet also the only one who has to do it.

In conclusion, I'm spending all my time on projects that need to be done, and still not doing enough. And even worse, often the results of those projects are so bad that they may not even be worth all the time and effort spent even if they don't end in failure. The specks of happiness from positive feedback are rarely worth the time it took to earn them, yet they're still the only good things I even have hope to work towards.

TL;DR: Everything I can do is too little, and the cost for doing it too much. What should I do?

You get faster at things with practice. It sucks, but as long as you keep drawing - and yes, you will need to do it a lot - you will eventually get faster at it. It's a matter of routine and practice. Once you feel totally comfortable with the process, and can do it without thinking much, you will eventually find yourself becoming significantly faster without even noticing it. But it does take significant time and effort to get to that point. Keep at it.

Roommate texts me and says he's thawed some chicken breast that I can cook if I want to.

Only problem is that I don't know what to make with chicken breast.

Also I'm shit at cooking.

So basically, if anyone has a good idea for what to make out of a chicken breast, please lemme know. I watched the YSAC episode and he has some good ideas but I need more than just chicken, you know?

Bonus points if you can make it work with garlic.

I have always been much better at things relating to art, especially English, rather than math or science. I had college-level reading comprehension in high school, according to my teachers, and any standardized testing involving English was an absolute breeze for me.

But I am the HUGEST brainlet when it comes to math. Even as a 24-yo I often struggle with basic arithmetic. I have the mathematical abilities of a middle-schooler at best. And it's starting to bum me out.

Specifically, it's bumming me out because, I likely can't even do a job as basic as being a cashier. But what's even worse, is I will never be able to study or comprehend things like, say, quantum physics, which sucks because that shit seems fucking fascinating.

The more I learn about math and the sciences relating to it, the more interesting it seems, because it goes to such crazy complex lengths that seem exciting. But how could I ever grasp any advanced mathematics if it takes me a full minute to figure out a subtraction problem involving 2-digit numbers?

Math, probably the most ass backwards of all subjects to be "taught". The process and interpretation of things is entirely dependent on who you're trying to help understand. You need a way to bridge between memorizing things and having then actually understand the why and the how things work how they do. Which is probably why I failed Calc 2 twice, because the whole course is memorizing abstract concepts. I have never needed to know the integral or derivative of the cosecant of x.

Math basically has two parts: Concept and Execution. The understanding of mathematical theory is concept and the memorization is the execution. In general, being 'good' at math requires you to be proficient at both the concept and execution.

I am proficient at the concept, but not the execution due to dyscalculia. If you are only ever taught to memorize things without being taught how it actually works, you would be proficient at the execution but not the concept.

Yam Ween is suppose to be Christmas and Halloween combine, I do get that. I just think that the made-up holidays are too much based on existing holidays that you might as well go with the original stuff.
If it was confirmed an entirely original world where traditional holidays are replaced, I would understand that, though despite how different Gloomsville is it is not really confirmed for that.
Ruby Gloom has a spooky setting, Halloween is about spooky things, why not a Halloween special?

If the writers simply wanted to do a Christmas special but understand the bright and colourful Christmas would be out of place in Gloomsville, well they could either make a black Christmas or make Halloween just as festive as Christmas without relabelling it as Yam Ween.

To me, Yam Ween follows same principle of Summerween; It's Halloween in another season. That's far more special than Christmas or Halloween on their own!
As for why there was no Halloween special in Ruby Gloom, firstly, the entire series already has a Halloween vibe to it, so a conventional Halloween special just wouldn't work. Secondly, it would be like if Gravity Falls had a reunion special where Mabel and Dipper returned to Gravity Falls for Halloween; What would be the point in a conventional Halloween special when we've already had an episode with a more unique version of Halloween? It would just seem uninspired in comparison.

Getting caught up on Ducktales.

Holy shit, am I really older than Launchpad?

All the references to the comics and original show are glorious. Total crush on new-Webby, even if she's only like 14.

I never watched the ducktales show, but I did own a VHS movie that was pretty good. Is the new series worth watching?

>Is the new series worth watching?

It is worth a look if for nothing else but the Easter Eggs like references to other older shows like Darkwing Duck, Tale Spin and the aforementioned Gummi Bears references. I loved the way they integrated the Darkwing Duck reference, complete with original voice actors into one episode. I can't wait to see what they'll reference next.

However, the two shows have radical differences in the story telling. Less action and way too much background which tends to get very boring in contrast to the old show. Then there's the ongoing bitchfest over the new show being way too focused on Webby. I won't argue this fact.
