Going back and revisiting some "older" albums I've not listened to in a while, I was stirred to listen to the album Folklore by British prog rock outfit Big Big Train. Released in 2016 (hence the quotes around the aforementioned word "older"), it tells tales of an England of old, focusing on the folklore and stories of the country. This is something that Big Big Train does exceptionally well on many of their albums - starting with 2009's The Underfall Yard and continuing even up until last year's releases (yes, plural) Grimspound and The Second Brightest Star.

In fact, these last two release combined with Folklore kind of comprise a trilogy of folk stories and history albums from the massive band of (currently) seven people (It was eight until the departure of one of the keyboardists not too many months ago). On these albums are songs inspired by the Victorian Era into the 1950s.

This brings us to what I am going to be sharing with this post: an innocuous song titled simply "Winkie," the story of NEU 40 NSL, a carrier pidgeon known as Winkie, and her journey from the crash site of a Bristol Beaufort torpedo bomber in 1942 that allowed Air/Sea Rescue to save the four men who went down when the plane ditched into the North Sea.

The song tells that the radio operator had managed to get out the SOS before the crash, but the impact knocked out the radio before he could relay coordinates and location to the rescuers. Nonetheless, ASR attempted a recovery, but the lack of coordinates meant that the search area was just too large to be effective, and they turned in.

The next morning, Winkie was found at her home. With the information determined based on the bird's exhaustion, the wind direction, and the like, the RAF was able to get a much more accurate idea of the plane's location.

Fifteen minutes later, the crew was found, all thanks to a bird named Winkie.

She would later be honoured as one of the first recipients of the Dickin Medal, an award for animals in the military that served with considerable valour in any branch of the British Armed Forces.

This is the song Big Big Train wrote to memorialize her actions.

Ded thred We meet here today to honour and pay tribute to the life of /b/ and Friends, and to express our love and admiration for whatever it was.

Also to try to bring some comfort to those of /b/ friends who are here and have been deeply hurt by /b/ and Friends sudden death.

/b/ and Friends wasn't a particularly religious thread, so it's befitting that its funeral ceremony should reflect what it was, ...... an autistic, .....angry, ......but loving thread; devoted to the family

Its only natural that we should be sad today, because in a practical sense, /b/ and Friends is no longer a part of our lives, "it must die, we know" said the posters, " tis but the time and drawing days out that threads stand upon", and so we all come to ponder the life and death of a thread, aged 8; with confused and autistic feelings.
For we have a powerful sense of loss; combined with a recognition that; if death must come, its as well that its not unduly prolonged, we don't want to see a threads love suffer, so this sorrow; and our sense of the fitness of things; don't sit easily together, one purpose of our proceedings here today; is in some way to try to reconcile those feelings.

Today is also a day for memories, today will be remembered for many reasons, but mainly I hope it will be remembered by you all; as a very special thread, a special thread in which you shared some time with others; in order to pay your last respects; and to say both mentally and physically; a sad and fond farewell to a wonderful thread, ....a thread whom we were all so very privileged to have known.

All threads must die to bear fruit for new ones.

So, Pokemon Origins. Is it me or is this one of the best things to have come out Pokemon from a cartoon/anime point of view for a long time?

I mean, it's dark, gritty, semi realistic.. It is what Pokemon was supposed to be before the main anime came along, kids got interested and so they focused it on them.

I highly recommend watching it if you happen to be an 'old school' Pokemon kind of guy who started playing when Red/Blue first came out, such as myself.

And you know when I say it's good it is as let's be honest I'm not the kind of guy who enjoys anime or anyrhing of the like.

Incredibles 2 spoilers will be itt, you have been warned #Spoiler
I just saw Incredibles 2 in theaters, AMA about it.

I thought it was pretty great, I don't know how it stacks up to the original because the last time I watched the original was like the year it came out and that was like 15 fucking years ago or something.

it was almost two hours long but didn't even feel like it, the pacing was very good, there wasn't any unnecessary side plots or over-indulgent twists or whatever (excluding one big one that anyone could see coming a mile away, but still).

it was good family-friendly fun, humor and action, and it was ACTUALLY funny, like consistently funny, which is a decent achievement for a kid's movie, because generally they have at least a certain amount of humor that really isn't funny to adults but as with most other Pixar films, this one really delivers on being able to have humor that you don't have to feel stupid for laughing at as an adult.

the action scenes were pretty well-done and creative, the theater I went to had great sound, not too loud like some movies but plenty loud enough to really be effective.

the animation was pretty impressive too.

my two gripes come with the soundtrack and the voice acting. the former was honestly kinda terrible, one of the most generic soundtracks I've heard in a while, which is really a shame. it sounded completely uninspired and the funny thing is was that there was a scene where they play Mozart as part of a gag and I was kind of thinking "should of used his music for the whole film rather than what we've got".

the latter is kind of mixed, the voice actors for the father and for the rich CEO dude were both really great and had a lot of power, and of course so did the freeze guy voiced by Samuel L. Jackson because like, it's Samuel L. Jackson, when has he ever done a bad job? but anyways, the voice actors for the female characters, especially Elastigirl and the daughter were pretty bad, almost irritating to listen to. >inb4 sexism

overall I rate it an 8/10 better than the majority of PG-13 capeshit that still comes out these days tbqh

favorite scene was the one where Elastigirl baits out the "Screenslaver" by getting him to hijack a TV station and then tracking him down using some GPS thing, and as she uses her powers to leap from building to building you hear his spooky distorted voice monologue about how cheap entertainment is destroying society or whatever, it was a well-written monologue and it was like the one part of the film that really dropped the "fun" aspect and felt genuinely ominous and creepy. and the fight scene it lead up to, which they actually had an epilepsy warning for at the ticket booth, was pretty fucking intense. like honestly it was an almost jarring change of atmosphere for a solid 15mins.

and just what IS a "demon"? watching the newest devil may cry trailer, and I'm kind of struck by the line "they're demons! I saw them with my own eyes" like its 100% concrete as a realization upon seeing the enemies that a person would think they're demons.

Looking at the monsters overrunning the soldiers at the start, I honestly have a hard time thinking that anyone would think "demons" upon seeing the creatures-- They look more like a horde of ants invading than demons, or an alien invasion. Saying "monsters" I could understand, but demons?
I understand that in the east the word "demon" is drastically different in connotation like how "dragon" is, but it brings to mind the question, "Just what characteristics does a creature have to have to be accepted as a "demon" and not some sort of other monster or creature?

tl;dr: Kanye West is now officially the third artist in history to have eight consecutive No. 1 albums in terms of sales, the others being Eminem and The Beatles.

Kanye is also the most likely to break this record, considering he is more popular than ever and probably not even close to retiring, whereas The Beatles have obviously been disbanded for several decades (and, ya know, two of its members are dead), and Eminem has claimed that his most recent album will be his last (he actually said that in lyrics on the album).

Thoughts on this? I figured it was worthwhile to make this separate from the general music thread.

It's probably worth mentioning that, on Kanye's new album, he has lyrics explaining that he has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder, which is particularly interesting to me because I was diagnosed with it as well, years and years ago

Personally, I feel that the new album is a solid 8/10, definitely not his best, but he has yet to make a bad solo album so far imo.

He also torrented a bunch of DVD rips for movies that came out in the last decade (well after BluRay has already become the main medium for movies).
Somehow though they still torrented flac quality albums.

"If men learn this, it will implant forgetfulness in their souls; they will cease to exercise memory because they rely on that which is written, calling things to remembrance no longer from within themselves, but by means of external marks. What you have discovered is a recipe not for memory, but for reminder. And it is no true wisdom that you offer your disciples, but only its semblance, for by telling them of many things without teaching them you will make them seem to know much, while for the most part they know nothing, and as men filled, not with wisdom, but with the conceit of wisdom, they will be a burden to their fellows."

All Things Bright And Beautiful is probably the best album Adam Young has released as Owl City to date.

Whilst I quite enjoy his other offerings, it is this album that really gets to me on an emotional level for most of the tracks; the bright and poppy sound with lyrics referencing chasing love and never giving up on one's dreams... it fills me with such joy.

In terms of individual songs, I really have to say that "Alligator Sky" is probably Young's best on the album. It's catchy, fun, and has what I would consider to be a fantastic chorus. The song is about reaching for the sky, a metaphor for pushing yourself to further and greater heights, with the alligator being an allegory for how that may be frightening and worrisome at times. It's a fantastic song, not gonna lie.

I do look forward to more releases from Young, although I don't know if he can ever top this album, it's that good.

Is there any music you folkses can't get enough of from a particular artist? I do have more songs and albums like this one that I just can't help but enjoy when it comes on. If people are interested, I'll throw them in a post later.

I am curious, though: what sort of music really gets to you on an emotionally good level? Like, what album or song or artist or band can you listen to and just feel warm and fuzzy with?

I want to sell my desktop PC I recently realized that I almost never use my desktop PC anymore, and I want to know how much money I can get for it.

It was custom-built by my uncle and at the time it was pretty much top-of-the-line, however it is now about seven or eight years old I think.

My guess is it is still worth at least a few hundred dollars, but I really have no idea exactly how much and if I could get even more than that, that would be fantastic. Any money I get from it is going straight into my savings.

I will see if I can get the specs later, as of now it is not set up at this new place, but I figure you guys can ask me the necessary questions about it.

At a glance, it seems to be "Lite"(?) brand desktop PC with a "Cooler Master" filtration system. iirc the hard drive is 750GB. the graphics card is several months out of date but it can still run a lot of stuff, just not new new stuff. I have a nice HD monitor to go with it.

that's all I can say for now unfortunately. I think it is "Lenovo" but I'm not sure.

Hey, /oat/!

I'm going to be hosting an anime stream this Saturday, the 27th, at 5pm/1700 Eastern. MOD EDIT: 6:30pm EST tonight!

I'm hoping it'll become a roughly weekly thing, though the time and day will vary depending on scheduling issues because my job is run by squirrels.

We're opening with the first two episodes of Keijo!!!!!!!!/Hip Whip Girl, and the first two of Food Wars!/Shokugeki no Soma. The former's a blend of sports and incredibly tacky fanservice, and the latter's about cooking and orgasms.

I'll be hosting it through Rabbit, so if you're interested head to https://www.rabb.it/ and sign up. Fear not: it's free, and while the site encourages the use of your mic and camera, both are completely optional.

starting off with this: Tipsy - J-kwon [OFFICAL LYRICS VIDEO]

this came out in 2004 long before I could drink but when I was in in like, middle school, it was unescapable and basically turned anyone's car into a club when you were with family or friends.

you know those songs where you'd be in the car and it would come on and everyone would be like "TURN IT UP, TURN IT UP!"

books books let's talk about books 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.

So, here we are. Took them 20 years, but we finally got it. A long long time ago, back in 1997, there was a special event in which people could play the very early proto/beta version of Pokemon Gold a few years before it came out.

Sadly hardly anyone seemed to bother recording much (well it was 1997 and a somewhat small event) and all what got from it was a few blury screenshots.

However, all these years later.. Someone has somehow managed to get hold of the code of that oh so early demo and my word is it.. different. Look at all these unused Pokemon designs that sadly never made the cut!

Baby paras, baby meowth.. girafarig pre evoultion, some sort of pinsir/heracross fusion which seems to prove the rumors of 'Pinsir was supposed to evolve into Heracross' rumors that have been floating around for years true.

Remoraid looking like a real gun, a fire type.. Poplio? Legendary dogs looking more like Anime horses.

Badass water shark with an anchor for a tail.. which I'm presuming is an early design for Sharpedo which was scrapped and then used in the next gen without the anchor tail.. which sucks.

Politoad is horrifying, Noctowl looks.. very basic, and most importantly of all


Also a split evolution Shelder/Cloyster thats the same as the slowbro tail one? I remember hearing there was supposed to be one of those years ago. Huh.

Also apparently Umbreon was posion type in the game files. Interesting..

Anyway what is your favourite of these unused and very early beta designs?

I think I'm self-centered. I have concluded I'm self-centered.

Unless it pertains to work, I spend most of my time not listening when others are speaking directly to me--although I pretend to listen. I don't care about what my friends have to say, generally speaking. I spend most of my time thinking about things I'd rather be doing by myself, if I'm not caught in some elaborate daydream. The entire situation renders me quiet.

Men seem not to notice my attitude or take offense. Girls, even though it isn't true, have thought that I hated them because I don't have much to say.

It might even be appropriate if someone called me a bastard for all of this. Yet, I do carry regard for peoples' well-beings--just not their other concerns.

I just can't feel any other way about my unwillingness to listen to others other than indifference, but I still thought about it enough to blog about it.

Thundercats Roar Thandercats get the GO! treatment.
ThunderCats Roar
My thoughts.
I don't mind the original art style, I just think it be best if it was for an original series. Thundercats Roar looks more like a parody of Thundercats for an animated sketch show. Althought a bit too much of the :3 face.
I never was a fan of Thundercats but even I find this cringy, wrong and makes me feel sorry for the Thundercats fandom.

Still on the other hands modern kids may still like it given Teen Titans GO!, Ben 10 and PowerPuff Girls are still in production despite the critisms the older fans give it.

Why the hell aren't there more computer desks with sliding keyboard tray and USB/AC plugs? They all either have one or the other or expect you to buy a separate "grommet" for convenient plugins. The gits are just making up words here.

The Generation - Millennials So I have been thinking this over for some time. for about a year now, I've been watching this generation get worse and worse. Tidepods, cinnamon, condoms, clowns and more shit that makes no sense at all as to why people are doing these things. Then how overly sensitive people are. It finally took me a while to really get to understand myself, who I am as a person. Now, I haven't been on this site in almost a year now and I did that on purpose because this site caused a lot of drama for me. A lot of people got pissy seeing me around, never actually solving shit and running from their problems. I've watched this in several discords I was in.

I've watched these people from this site, 4chan, facebook, twitter, and so on that, any sort of social media run from any sort of minor problem. I personally blame technology and social media. It's too easy to watch everything. Back before androids and iPhones, how did you watch something? Your computer or TV? Before that, TV, before that movies or radio. Before that, books and newspaper. Before that human god damn interaction.

It comes down to seeing this generation interact with any sort of being at all. At least my parents, when they have a problem, they solve it. I can give both generations the same problem, make it minor and the millennial would run like it's going to kill them. Confrontation scares them. Maybe it's the fact that I live in the south. Maybe it's the fact that I was raised by baby boomers who believed that everything has a consequence. And I'm ok with that. Good or bad, it has a consequence.

I remember about 2 years ago, someone had a problem with me in an old hobby shop. I found out and I asked them to come talk to me outside of the store, we stood there, I asked what the issue is and you know what he told me "I didn't want to make a scene or make you mad and yell at me." I'm a god damn adult, not a child or a teenager. I told him that if you have a problem with me, pull me to the side, and talk to me. Humans are interesting more now than ever. They do better in groups. You get 1 by itself and it breaks down. You have 1 in a group, you get "like minded" or "group mentality" or something of that nature where the group does the initial thinking and instead of 1 voice being heard and disagreeing, you have several.

Also, that's why I've not been on this site for almost a year now because I wanted to see what the rest of the internet was like. I had to get away.

I've watched this happen, now, the reason for this thread is to ask, what do you think about this generation?

Ponychan/Ponyville Dwarf Fortress It's been a while since I did this, and IIRC it was pretty fun last time, so I'm going to start a new Dwarf Fortress, using posters from here and from Ponyville for the victims dwarves, and posting the screenshots of the chaos fun here.

If you want to join, I'll need the following:

1. A name to use for your dwarf
2. A skill (or skills)/occupation for your dwarf to focus on. You can choose multiple, but to keep things easier for me, try to keep them related (e.g. stonecutting, masonry, and engraving, or woodcutting and carpentry, etc). Here's a list: http://dwarffortresswiki.org/index.php/DF2014:Skill#Skills
3. If you want, you can be a worthless piece of shit noble as well, since those are a necessary evil. You can see a list of them and what their job roughly entails here: http://dwarffortresswiki.org/index.php/DF2014:Noble

I am quite tired. Not a lot of sleep last night and I spent most of today DMing Pathfinder at the local game shop.

So let's talk Tabletop. Specifically RPGs. Do you play any? What do you play? What do you like or dislike about the systems you play? Your favourite system?

I have played a few systems, mostly Pathfinder and 5e, and I DM both. I also played Stars Without Number and love that system. My personal favourite is Pathfinder, which I feel is really complex, but enjoyable despite it. I don't hate 5e, but I have a few more criticisms than I do pros, like how it forces specific builds and is very damage heavy.

I enjoy DMing both systems because I love helping my players tell their stories.
