Smash had no other use along with my other video games. except in the hopes of attaining a relationship among peers. I traded it in along with all my games and consoles when I rationalized that hope to be a idiotic endeavor. I remember the good old days when I played smash with my neighborhood apartment bully. I remember when broke the nose of this one Mexican kid.

Finish up wasn't a word intentionally used. Although despite being coincidence, I have seen several films from most of those directors except for Kurosawa. My favorite from Bergman so far was the seventh seal. It had subtle sense of humor even though death was literally hanging around the corner.

I am fully aware that imitation is inspiration. We are all imitations ourselves, after all.
I didn't mean that copying and complete originality is possible. I was simply saying that most of manga I read were bad because they were bad. I may have used unoriginal as the convenient buzzword to express my distaste. However, it wouldn't be fair to say something like Taratino's homages are akin to cheap manga that copy the worst and boring tropes for easy sales. Anyway, my complaints before were just exaggeration. I am just not interested in the format of the medium, anymore.
I had not seen that video, but thanks for linking. It had some really interesting parts that stood out.
>a writer decided to retype the Great Gatsby before typing his own novel (inspirational in a unique way)
> A billionaire who founded google decided to sue every major company over his patent on recommendation links.
> talking about patent trolls

The editing style was smooth. It reminded me of these guys. 1. 2.
The slow voice-over and cheesy ending also add to the similarities. It leaves a really bad aftertaste.

I am not fan of hip-hop expressing problems in a community, either. I am a fan of art used as a vehicle to help with the coping of a distraught artist. I hate preachers, but I do like self-pitying whiners which is why Eminem was the only rapper I liked. Sometimes that best way to expose the problems of a broader community is by exposing yourself.
Anyway, I believe my notion still stands. Old hip-hop artists talk about poverty, ghettos, welfare, and how mistreated blacks are by society and the police, but once the sales rake in, they go to their mansions and smoke blunts while the black community is still poor and uneducated. They use sympathy as a pretense to boost themselves on a high-horse. There is nothing wrong with that, since it is simply a banality and I am sure the music still helps out the listeners mentally, but it is a peculiar observation that should be noted.

Reflecting your comment about manufacturing, youtube is loved ideally because it is an open stage that any individual can participate in from any where at any time. Additionally in accordance with our talk about originality, the name of game is mostly about copying each other's popular or easy formats and adding one's own flair, However, that is also an ideal. I see 1000s of beauty channels, gaming channels, and vlogging channels. Same genre of content is perfectly fine, but these people are fucking exact clones of each other. They all look the same in appearance, do the exact same videos, and sometimes live in the exact same area together. As with the appeal of reality shows, videos have become mass-produced segments of rich people doing repetitive effortless things for a mindless, vacuous audience. It is funny how you asked for people I watch, but I ended up going on a tangential, trivial rant. Coincidentally if I were to ever (never) make a youtube channel, it will probably be a trite, rant-based content. Too bad it will never happen, since I don't like the idea of being slaves to the whims of an audience and my rant-style is already numerous and unoriginal in other channels (although I consider them all to be boring and bad even if successful). I also have to wonder I could even put in the effort to buy proper equipment and learn editing for something as ugly as youtube.

Finally, I watch pewdiepie, dunkey, nigahiga, and team4star. I used to be subbed to 200 or so popular people just to feel I don't miss anything important that happens in the community. But it became disgusting seeing pointless videos and it is silly to think anything important will come out it. I like pewdiepie because he has a lot of influence, but isn't a terrible person. I don't like his video, I just like what he represents.
Dunkey's humor is hit or miss, but I find genuinely positive person. Nigahiga was one of the original people on youtuber, and he still maintained growth. All three feel like humans nor did they follow styles, they created them. Their videos don't make me feel bad, I guess.

Not very sincere! The size needs to be the normal size! >.>
Yes of course, my name is just to be contradicting!
Never ever. I even got twice the homework this year since I'm taking two AP classes. Usually I just get English homework. ;'( Hm, suspicious? How so?
Didn't you hear? Curiosity killed the cat. You would risk that?
Curious about me awh. c: Isn't just being my friend the perk itself? ^-^
I swear I'm not this conceited...
Insanity Aug 12, 2016 11:33 PM
Hm well you called me a baka so you got to apologize at least.
Terrible language? I'm innocent, idk what you're talking about. ^-^
Summer homework and cooking. Pretty much it. :/ But once I get my homework out of the way, I'll have more time. ^^
Haha, feel sorry? They should be happy to be my friend. (:

I suppose it could be also a result of never having anyone likable to play games with. I did play tekken or smash with people in the past, but those experiences weren't enjoyable. I was talking about dark souls, etc when I said souls series. I am not into fighting games.

I heard "The Human Condition" was a long masterpiece. I should check out more ingmar bergman, akira kurosawa, andrei tarkovsky, or finish up all of imdb top 250 for the sake of it.

The charm may be gone because of too much exposure. Most manga just rely on shock factor or simplicity. The medium promotes minimalism in prose and mediocre stories. Despite being a visual platform, artists tend to just copy each other's style and most don't put in effort to create something truly breathtaking. Again, perhaps excessive exposure made me jaded.

>What do you consider to be worthwhile?

A bit vague, but I look for the genuine intent from the author to tell his philosophy and to tell a well-crafted tale. I use stories to learn, so I want an articulate teacher.
Escapism is not wrong, since all art is escapism for both the artist and viewer. It is by-product of this existence to hate this existence, so it is not worth fighting it as we all want to find momentary solace in some shape. However, certain works are only designed to profit off of people's misery rather than help guide them through it. I look for the latter while the former does not appeal to me. An example for the former would probably be almost every rap song, and an example of the latter would be Eminem's Beautiful.

Self-awareness is great, but can be despairing if you don't fix yourself to be someone you prefer. At times you wish you would be ignorant, but you can't be anymore.

Oh, YouTube is a good option. However, it is not really a place for big projects which is what I assumed you wanted to undertake.
Unfortunately, to get noticed on youtube requires even more arbitrary chance than simply begging producers or if you are willing, you have to use very cheap tactics.
It doesn't help that the main audience consists of children or young teens, which is why the big youtubers act the same or have similar dry content because that is easiest way to please their demographics.
Insanity Aug 10, 2016 11:45 PM
Well I actually noticed you tend to reply 2-3 days late. >.> So yes I did notice. c: Take that baka back please.
oooh dammit. D: Pls let me off the hook this time....sir. c:
I haven't seen anything yet. T^T No anime, no movies, no TV shows. Haven't even read manga which I normally do. ;-;
Well obviously I'm nice to friends, because that way I can make a lot and get things from them. ^-^
Haha okay jk, I cherish my friends. (:

I don't play video games. I am more a fan of narrative driven mediums as most games seem to just be trivial grindfests and shallow time-wasters (technically everything is "wasting time" but I couldn't think of a better word). Not that all games are bad since I liked shadow of the colossus, souls series, and limbo. But those were for the atmosphere, lore, and aesthetics and not really for the gameplay itself.

TV shows don't catch my eye, but I have been liking the recent season of Mr. Robot. I am attracted to introspective stories based around delirious characters. Perhaps, as a reflection of my turmoils. I have problems with the plot of Mr. Robot, but the pacing and cinematography is fascinating. I feel like barely anything happens in each episode yet I am still drawn to every second. Besides that, I think the only other TV show that I liked was Breaking Bad.

There hasn't been any recent anime that appealed to me. Anime used to be my favorite medium since the Japanese weren't afraid to be absurd and wacky, but that charm is gone. However, my favorites are still Penguindrum and Baccano.

I haven't been in the proper mood for the movies, but I do have a long plan to watch.

I have been choosing literature from respectable authors and actually sitting down and reading them. Reading novels from troubled people seems to really calm me down. My favorite recently has been Crime and Punishment. I had plan to read more books this summer, but I was so distracted with overthinking my life that I ended up doing nothing until now. And hopefully I will continue to be consistent with what I want to do instead of thinking some activity is useless.
I have read a lot of manga in the past, but most of them are awful and pointless besides Asano Inio's works. I think I only read them to be part of a lame community and because they were more accessible and quick to read.

As I know I enjoy reading a lot, I really should practice my grammar, and syntax so I can become a more decent writer to motivate myself.
I really have to be more spontaneous rather than making excuses.

How about you?

>Yeah, the internet isn't bad. It's how you use it.

Unfortunately since we are simply in the advent of the information age, most people don't use it properly either and only use it to distract themselves. I probably shouldn't be judging either way. On second thoughts, even 1000 years from now, people would still continue the bad habit since it is human nature.

>Directing and writing.

That is something that definitely requires a lot of connections. Moving to LA could help if you ever save enough money.

I have not given up on media, but how I approach is a lot different. I mean is it really possible to give up on something like this? Humans have always been attracted to the arts for whatever reason.
In the past, I just indulged in everything I saw. Be it video games, or random youtube videos with no care for the nothing I am doing. They were simply means to distract myself from how frightened I was of living. However, I am now picky about what I do, quit watching asinine youtubers, and now see art as a beautiful tool to figure out life or least see different perspectives. I disliked the internet because I was searching up pointless things, but the internet itself is not bad if I were to use it for stuff that makes me happy rather than only doing things to distract myself.
I mostly spend my time from reading articles, discussions, and books.
How do you spend your time?

Insanity Aug 3, 2016 9:09 PM
Ah well we all have our own opinions. I won't even bother watching season 2 of SAO even though I usually watch all the seasons for animes that I watch.
Haha yup! I just find the concept interesting. I enjoy comedy movies from time to time and I already saw a funny scene from it so I'd probably enjoy it.
ooh wow they all sound interesting. Especially Blade Runner. I didn't know A New Hope was Star Wars. I feel like I'm the only person who never actually watched Star Wars lol.
I'm more in it for the money. Haha jk, it does feel nice when you help friends. ^^

I feel if I move out of my parents. I will forget about the burden of expectations that I think my parents may have, then perhaps do well. I do my best when I motivate myself, since the only reason I even did fine in academics and attitude (even if it was a bit late). My parents are very liberal and trust me, but that led me to spend my whole life on entertainment and the internet. Not even searching useful things. I had to wake myself up from the delusion as no one else could help with this feeling of self-critical depression. Now I am a lot better. Being active and doing my best with what I can makes life less boring for me, so that is my real incentive.

What would be a good impression?
Have you made life-long friends in college? More so than high school? I haven't made any close relationships in high schools, but I learned that I can interact with anyone if I tried. I somehow got all my teachers to say they would give me recommendation letters even though I didn't much except talk and listen to them. I even talked to my psychology teacher after school about his poverty and suicidal thoughts. It took so long that he was worried that he might be not be allowed to keep me there.

Your friends who do/did business-what do they think of it? Any tips you learned from them? Have they made a business or are they just working in already established places?

Do you know of any useful website to search for internships and whatnot?

Where did you go for college? What is your opinion on that place and would you recommend that place being a possible choice?
ChangeItSelf Jul 30, 2016 12:20 PM
There is an inflation of bachelor's which means eventually a master's degree is going to become a minimum for getting some kind of decent job.
I feel that building connections and getting the credential is the only purpose of college since everyone seemingly complains about how nothing practical is taught most of time.
If I knew people, I definitely wouldn't set foot in there, but alas, I know no one useful.

If I get the money to actually repay him, I wouldn't repay him since he wouldn't want it nor am I interested in repaying. I should clarify that fear of mooching isn't coming from a fear of wasting my dad's money, but a fear that he is going to blame himself if I were to fail when the blame should only be placed on me. Well, no blame should be placed anywhere ideally.
I don't care about failure and I would gladly use all his money to take risks, since my parents are kinda only living for me. My mom isn't even living, she is a manic depressed schizophrenic. However, despite my dad wanting me to be just be happy with anything, he is the type of person who worries so much that I don't think he understands me when I say I would be happy trying even if I fail.
Having a parent who suffered so much just to keep a random family safe makes me wish I was an orphan. Being an orphan at least wouldn't have the burden of meeting up to someone. I prefer a harder life over a life like this. However, I really should just be spontaneous without overthinking things.

Do you know anything about people who majored in law, accounting, or neuro/cogntive science? Those might be only practical choices that may not completely annoy me. Any general college tips or experiences that you could share? How do you talk to professors? etc. I don't know many people in real life, so I have to do my best getting information from anyone I encounter on the internet.
Insanity Jul 29, 2016 11:36 PM
Well I need you to be confident yourself so I can't do that. c:
Yup! I was really getting into it and I had a lot of expectations that just shattered. I already didn't like Kirito and Asuna was just as bad. Yui I felt was just there to serve as their "kid." I was hoping the second arc would've been better, but it was even worse. It was all over the place. A lot of people loved it even more when there was romance, but I just felt like it made it worse. I don't mind if they added romance, but I didn't like how it was like the main focus now. At first I gave it a 7, but then I looked back into it and all and realized how horrible it really was.
Yeah it has a lot of bad reviews, but I'm still going to watch it.
And yes sure, I'd love some recommendations! ^^
Pretty excited arent ya?

You think? xD
Honestly the first episode was great. I loved it a lot and I was so excited to what the rest was like. But then it suddenly become more like a harem rather than an action packed fantasy show. They focused so much on the romance as opposed to the battles and all that. I didn't like one character. I don't even want to talk about the Alfheim Online Arc. That was just completely horrible. I was anticipating the boss battle so much, but Kirito ended up defeating him in like 10 seconds. And I felt like Yui was just there to serve as their "kid." It had so much potential, but sadly it all went to a waste.
I actually have a whole list of movies in my phone that I plan to watch. I've been really wanting to watch this movie called "Leave her to Heaven" and "Movie 43."
Hm idk...I could really use a massage though...Fine yes. >.>

Haha yeah I like to finish it. It depends for shows though. Like SAO was just tooooo bad that I don't think I'm going to watch season 2.
Exactly. I actually think 7 is too nice, but I gave it anyways.
Hm I was going to agree to that until I saw the gif... >.> Making me a little suspicious.
