Sarah J. Maas in general is terrible, I recently read A Court of Thorns and Roses and it was horrible, the second book improves things a little and then the third book comes and ruins everything again, holy shit that is one shitty book. Why this woman is so popular is not something I'll ever understand, her stories are bad and clichéd, her character and world development is nonexistent, not even her writing is good, everything reads like a fanfic a 12 year old wrote in 2008.

No. 43597

Iirc her Cinderella fan fiction was originally published on fiction press. She got discovered on there by a publisher and promptly took it down to make mad cash. She wrote it when she was in college (18 I think was her age). So in a way you’re right lmao

Can anyone rec good fantasy books where the main characters are twenty-somethings instead of teenagers? Looking for something plot driven then character driven, can be a standard story structure or something experimental. Basically I want to try everything out for that setting because I haven’t been reading for a long time.

I’m also quite adverse to stories set in modern times without any fantastical elements (i.e "real world stuff") so I’d love to hear it if anyone can convert me with a good book.

No. 43675

You could try any book by Gabriel García Márquez. There's a lot of fantastical elements while still being based in reality, hence why the genre he writes is called "magical realism."

Just finished reading Islands in the Net by Bruce Sterling.
An interesting example of a cyberpunk book where the protagonist is on the side of the corporations. Has a pretty strong female protag too.

Have you ever thought about how much most guys love this movie? This guy I’m boning pointed something out to me I hadn’t thought about.
1.Fight Club the book has Marla Singer in it far more than the movie this means that it is even more clear that she is a symbol of anti consumerism. She can survive just fine without the narrator. This makes his anti consumerism mission even more fragile because he isn’t saving anyone he is destroying himself and everyone including the people he cares about.
Makes you think of the creepy incel guys like the murderer of Bianca Devin.
2.In the book he tries to save her by making her go away. It is a self awareness of the Id to Ego complex Tyler Durden represents. By recognizing the lack of empathy and love he in many ways drives Marla away to the point of pushing her away and paying her to go away. You always hear that if you love them let them go. Well girls get used to losing before guys do in so many ways its not even funny. This helps girls become more creative and adaptable.
3.Tyler isn’t real. No matter how hard guys try to be some imagined definition of being a man Tyler is as good as anything you see in men websites telling them to act a way to be more manly but always selling them a product. Guys are not very good at being consumers so they buy into consumerism and are coopted by a capitalist framework.

The guy I am seeing says that yes he might be easy on the eyes and may have clawed himself out of the working class but he never did it because he was trying to destroy society. He says the things that suck about society are a system we have always been in. The way to be a real man is not to be reckless. To take most things with a grain of salt but to be gracious with people because most are facing similar problems. Especially working class men and women. He said that the system tries to divide and commodify everyone because then people who are wealthy dont have to worry about any real trouble from poorer people. But if Women and men recognize this struggle they can enlighten themselves beyond the narrative of the world they have always known. This is why misogyny is also a commodity and selfish dimwitted losers like that murdered do what they do. They plan out their validation. Once they know they will be hero's to other men they act like cold blooded killers. They are manufactured and radicalized by capitalism. Its quiet profound. Crazy thing is he is a banker.

I have been thinking recently I'd love to have a thread where we could post documentaries. I watch a lot especially when doing stuff around the house so I can post a couple of favourites I recommend here in the OP, more in the comments if anyone is interested, and would love to find some new ones!

Interview with a Cannibal: Guy who met up with another guy online who consented to being murdered and eaten. Morbid but interesting watch. German, so subtitled.

Polygamy Doc: One Man, Six Wives, Twenty something kids. A guy in utah who keeps very very young wives and at the time of filming, being 40 ish, was trying to woo a 16 year old kid. (not a spoiler but he subsequently went to jail and a few wives left him, some stayed. Very interesting to watch and to look into after)

A historical one for variety: The truth about hygiene etc in Versailles. Stumbled across this and left it on while doing my makeup and really liked it! Sent me down a nice historical rabbithole, not of actual history per se but of little tidbits like this about daily life and lesser known shit (literally)

Ok back to morbid. If you haven't seen this already, it's insane, a little girl, "child of rage". Another one interesting to look into what happened afterwards (she was later put through attachment therapy)

so i'm taking a relaxing day to watch documentaries about interesting people and i can highly recommend these:

-"I Think We're Alone Now" : a short doc following 2 people with aspergers who are kind of dangerously obsessed with former teen pop idol Tiffany

-"The Parking Lot Movie" : a bunch of misfit overeducated young men working as parking lot attendants and getting up to artistic shenanigans

-"Marwencol" : man with brain damage lives vicariously through a 1/6 sized WW2 era model town he built in his backyard. he makes dolls based off of people he knows and it's equally creepy and understandably sad

if anyone has recs like these i'd love to hear them, i love seeing life through the perspective of outsiders

Yeah, MBMBAM is one of my go to comfy podcasts, but I would never speak aloud that I'm a fan because their fanbase is batshit insane. I just finished TAZ as well, and I enjoyed it just fine but TAZ fans are somehow even more insane than just the MBMBAM ones?

PUTJ is amazing. I agree Miel can be kind of obnoxious, but Demi is SO talented it makes up for it. I started listening to Gilmore Guys and PUTJ just because I was such a fan of him on Twitter. The "It Wasn't Me" punch up is one of my personal favs

>comfy podcast recommendations
Not sure what you consider comfy, but as someone who loves non-fiction/historical/science/true crime podcasts, I kind of consider the comfy ones ones I don't have to think much about, or aren't particularly heavy or political….if that makes sense. Here's some of my favs:
>Gilmore Guys: a comfy classic, but watching the show along with them helps. 2 silly dudes going through every episode of Gilmore Girls
>MBMBAM: silly dudes answering silly questions. If you can ignore their batshit fanbase, it's a comfy staple
>Punch Up the Jam: see >>20064
>Mother May I Sleep With Podcast?: podcast about absurd Lifetime movies. I've never watched a single one of the movies and I still enjoy the podcast
>Plz Advise: same host as MMISWP, they take calls and give advice
>Why Won't You Date Me?: comedian Nicole Byer and trying to figure out her dating life

Is there a way to play online battles and trade on Pokemon DS games on a DS emulator with people who have the original copy?

No. 40470


Unfortunately I don't think there's a real good way of connecting a real game to a rom, but if you want to play through multiplayer I'd recommend Pokemon MMO. It's exactly what it is, you use a rom and connect to servers, and you basically play through the game vanilla with the bonas of other players/customization /battles/trading. Its a little bizarre to see players clip through each other & in cutscenes but imo its a better way to play the older games with more functionality.

I'm still miffed this isn't a feature in a main series game yet

No. 40545

I’ll sound like a dickhead for this but since SWSH is based on the UK I’m … surprised the Champion is a random anime brown guy. Like what? I legit thought he was supposed to be related to the dragon gym leader/champion in Black and White because of the stupid purple hair style but then they showed his brother. Is he a reference to something? His outfit is utter shite too, anything would be better than a football kit with a tacky ‘royal’ cape on top and a fucking chav hat. Why do we get so many good designs and then this clown?

And those legendaries. Literal dogshit.

No. 40691

The champion is arse, everyone wanted some queen type character, his main pokemon is Charizard, not even a Galar region pokemon.

But I am hoping he's a red herring and is actually the bad guy, that'd be something interesting for once.
