he did start taking money for himself though. but I think it's because he lost his actual job and basically had too. iirc he still donates half to charity.

either way I like him. he's very over-the-top but he actually does it well, I'm not sure why it works but I think it might be because he has this level of self-awareness, like he doesn't think he's super awesome or something, he just likes fucking around.

Surprised at how well FFX has held up unlikeable pony 41894551[View]

Playing the HD release of FFX on steam, and gotta say, surprised at how well this game has held up.

The graphics, while shit by today's standards, look good enough that I honestly DON'T see an issue with the unless I force myself to think "This is worse than current graphics", due to having a well done style. The combat system is tight, the VA isn't too bad, and the plots not bad either (its refreshing that there wasn't a random secondary villain hijacking the primary villain like what happens in most Final fantasies).

its just surprising as, going back and replaying FF9, I actually was taken aback by it not aging well (the villain is utter shit, and I honestly don't think the plot is that good-- Kuja is still one of the worst villains in FF history).

What's everyone's thoughts on the various FF games?

After reading wiki, it has barely anything to do with Parasite Eve.

Rapira85 41899763

It has that theme. The second game is closer to Resident Evil, it even has tank controls. The first one is more RPG.

Nah, it's not a movie adaption.

Damn damn damn.

I just finished Hibike Euphonium, and I don't think I've ever had so strong an itch to pick up an instrument...uhm...Yeah, I know, this might be a shallow starting point.

I realize I'm a bitch, and I may thus not get support or advice. That is fine, I can deal with the consequences of butting heads and being really harsh like I do :o

Flute is starting to look so attractive to me. I remember my middle school years. I don't know about other countries, but in France, we had mandatory music "courses". I say "courses" because they just outfitted 20+ something pupils with shitty plastic recorders, gathered them once a week for ONE HOUR, ONE, HOUR, and made us produce shit because none of these pupils gave a shit. Like wtf. Way to suck at fostering passion, French school system.

I ramble, forgive me. But I'd like to pick up flute. I don't want to not try and then regret it.

I'm pretty sure I'm always serious unless it's an obviously recognizable meme or vicious sarcasm. I hate being misinterpreted, so if you're not sure then either I've messed up or you're irreparably twisted. Either way, in this case I was serious.

Book Club pt. 2 41819721[View][Last 50 Posts]

A new thread for the book club to discuss its next reading: The Brothers Karamazov, written by Fyodor Dostoyevsky!

Sorry for the delay. I took longer getting this up than I would have liked to. If you were working on something, Chewy, feel free to just post whatever you've got here (those notes you took were great, by the way - do you mind if I post them here? Or if you have more, you could post those as well).

And so we enter the realm of the russians. Let me begin by addressing the elephant in the room: this book is quite long. I expect to spend two to four months on it as a group. Many of you had trouble finishing Heart of Darkness in a month, meaning this will likely be a challenge for you - I hope that the prose of Dostoyevsky suits you all more (I know I was not a fan of Conrad) and that you can get through this at a better pace. Even if it seems like too much, though, I hope that you all stick around and do your best to read along with the rest of us. Do your best and don't give up! And keep us all updated with your progress as we go.

If you didn't finish Heart of Darkness at all, feel free to catch up on that and continue to this book at your own leisure. Even if you don't finish reading these works, all of you have something to contribute to the discussion of them, which is what I'm really hoping to gain from these threads.

Let's get to the questions. I ripped some off the interwebs this time. Bear with me here, I know less about this one than I did Heart of Darkness and it's also much less controversial which makes it a little harder.

1. What translation are you reading/going to read? I want to warn you a little about this: don't overthink it. In all likelihood, your first choice was probably fine, and unless you find yourself disgusted with what you're reading, don't worry about switching to a different translation. I do reccommend doing a little bit of research into it, maybe google around for a half hour or so, but don't overdo it looking for the "best" translation, or you'll find yourself never reading the damn book! Read through some previews and find one with prose that you enjoy. That will be the most important thing. If you have any thoughts on the different translations, please let us all know them!

2. Dostoyevsky was, of course, quite religious, and Christianity plays an important role in everything he wrote. I've met quite a few people who actually said Dostoye

Chewy [Element Of Fortitude]!MUSIC.FbVY 41885711


well, as far as the books I've read so far go, I think I might have to say that in a general sense I enjoyed Gravity's Rainbow more, but this comes close. Ivan's book was one of the most gripping and intense experiences I've ever had with a work of art and/or entertainment, and the very final three chapters, the epilogue, were very feelsy, bittersweet but more on the bitter side I think.

I feel like there is a lot to take in and dissect from the book, like honestly even though I followed what happened in a literal sense, I'm not really sure what the ultimate message from the book is supposed to be when you consider how the ending was.

Not as deeply as when I was a kid, but yes.

Nah. But I'm the only one in the family that doesn't have at least one ghost or UFO encounter story, so maybe it's just a matter of time.

>Like spooky scary aesthetics in movies/games/books?

As with any aesthetic, I really like it when it's done well.
