I wonder which place has the most people in flow all the time.
Does posting here count as going with the flow?


There was this person I came across on neocities that writes a whole lot, a whole lot more than I ever bothered.
https://valleanenowe.neocities.org/ruminations/2023/entropy
I wonder how much they're thinking while they're writing it. Maybe there's some enjoyment to be had about it.
People make a lot of personal sites in the US it looks like.

When I used to post I would read through my posts and make sure they sound all right, but is that going with the flow?


I am planning to make another purchase soon. How do you make a purchase unconsciously?
I think you just choose the one that is most advertised, I suppose.
There are so many options to choose from...


I posted this video but I don't usually watch it. But I watched it the other day and it makes me wonder how many you come across are monsters.
"What makes a monster?" you might ask–well, I couldn't say. But you'll know, won't you? I wonder if I am a monster.
My blood says that I didn't come from here. But are you your blood anyway?
I wonder if monsters are happier than those who hope to appear as docile.

Anyway, I realize that the neocities above shows that, if you wanted–like I am now–you could figure a way to write a whole lot.
Maybe saying nothing in the process.
But always making sure you had a central thesis to your anonymous meandering post on an obscure imageboard; doesn't that hurt you in the end?

I think there's something to be said about how anonymity and imageboards let you gain access to meditative states


Maybe people don't write a lot because they hope for a response, or hope to conserve some energy, but these are both false if you want them to be.

1. always needing to respond to things makes it forced and therefore unflowy and therefore not worth the time
2. by bottling up energy, you are expending energy–resisting how your energy flows, where it finds itself posting on obscure imageboard forums. that's the landscape you're in–the same as asteroids and Saturn rings–fly through it



The last thing I wonder is how incomprehensible my language can get to those who are learning english.
But that's life!



It's stupid easy to write a lot.
I guess the question is why you would do that.
For profit–you'll need a narrative structure, definitely.
For yourself–I think silence ought to do?
For others–they don't want to read things that don't apply to them!

It's just curious. Anyway, this was an attempt to mirror what I came across, that website above that I linked.
I wonder if it somehow helps them in the end.

Thanks for all the fish!

Written communication is beautiful because it leaves enough space for the other party to fully express themselves.

>Insect lives are ephemeral
I am reminded of the Mushishi episode that has a theme centered around that ephemerality.
The episode conveys that, by living so shortly, they experience things so much more intensely, since everything is sincerely new.

To emphasize the point, when was the last time you did something truly new?
That had no prior frame-of-reference or experience which you could adapt from? Not even media from which you could reference.

Maybe when you were in second grade and discovered your favorite TV series.
To be a child is to experience things so intensely compared to older people.
For example, starting Kindergarten.


In this way, sometimes I wonder what it would be like to wipe your brain.
Of course no one will want to support you or deal with you when you're too old.
But it'd be nice to have one day where you experience everything as if it was new again.
Maybe that's why people have kids: to experience novelty by proxy.

>crops or animals?
Both. You can pick up chickens, look at cows, and also learn how things are grown/made (but I don't remember that part because that was boring to my pea brain).
There are also rollerskating rinks, aquariums, zoos and amusement parks if you're close enough to them.

I think Kyoto is the most popular destination for school trips almost all over the country.

That's how I sounded when I was a college freshman, and even up to today.
When you work long enough you learn to drop those words when typing.
It definitely is reflective of how English speakers talk though.

Just to be clear: it's not an envious position to drop these idiosyncratic blips of conversation.
But I am also indoctrinated at this point to avoid them and reluctantly engage with those that use them.

There's no "right" way to speak, is what I'm saying.
I just also have a negative track record interacting with those that type "nah bro" unironically.
Not to characterize myself as 'sophisticated' or anything.
If anything I am autistic.


I think Japan has some of the same "markers of speech" that, for better or for worse, categorize people.
Beyond the use of Watashi, Boku, Ore.
For example, maybe those that repeatedly say まじ come off differently than those who don't.
I can be most certainly wrong on that. Maybe まじ is universal.

You have the correct mapping.

In my part of America I rarely hear the word "school trip". For sake of semantics, "school trip" and "field trip" are equivalent in meaning.

There are, but I don't think they're same sort as in Japan.

None where I live though so I've never experienced it. Don't know much about them other than that.

I can come up with four Japanese words that can be translated as a field trip.
遠足 is one-day local picnics, especially for kids in kindergartens or elementary schools.

校外学習 can be both one-day local field trips or multi-day tours.
修学旅行 usually refers to the longest field trips and is multi-day tours in most cases.

It's nice when language accurately captures the nuances of an event like going out.
In some ways, I think it's nice in terms of capturing emotions too.
'Field trip' or 'day trip' feels flat when I think about it–which is strange, since it should be a time of excitement. New things to see.

>If it is asked why I was at an early date disposed to look to other agencies than light as possibly concerned in causing the peculiarity of the compass plant, I answer that I was fresh from the study of electromagnetism. Read Section 1O5 of Roget's electromagnetism on the electrical spiral coil (the "Solenoid"), by which currents of electricity cause it to act when suspended on a vertical axis, like the magnet in pointing to the north.

I suppose it depends where you live in Japan.
Japan has some of the most pedestrian friendly architecture in the world.
Things can happen because you can go hang out in areas specifically designed for people, not vehicles.

When I go on bike rides, the main thing I enjoy is finding places that aren't infested with the sounds of motor vehicles and I can see people walking and living. But they're few and far between.

I know there is no greener-side when it comes to living in other places though. I hear that Tokyo can be very isolating; in addition, I will never fully integrate into Japanese society (which makes perfect sense to me frankly). The work culture there is brutal too.

Smaller Comics like the walking dead tend to be B/W which most of the time is actually a good thing. Many times Coloring actually hurts the art.

It's not rare. Superheroes are just SUPER popular in America. In Europe Superheroes are still popular, but we have more space for other genres. ranpha003 In Japan, Western Heroes don't seem to be popular, but there has been many attempts for Superheroes in Japan. There was a Batman manga created in the 1960s by Jiro Kuwata to promote the 60s TV show. He'd go on to create 8Man which has a cult following in Japan and the West.

There's more Western Comics and Japanese stuff that'd I think you'd be interested in, but i don't wanna write about it all Look up nouvelle manga if you wanna learn about French and Japanese authors collabing.

>I heard western comics usually have artists and writers as different people while mangaka usually both write plots and draw comics themselves.

Sometimes there's multiple artists and writers for one comic, and even MORE people doing inking and coloring. Manga tends to be the mangaka doing the story and art then the assistants doing inking and adding details. Sadly, most of the time assistants aren't credited like in western comics.

>I might explore western comics more if there were wholesome ones like slice of life stuff.

If you want western Slice of life watch sitcoms lol. King of the hill is a animated sitcom set in Texas. I don't really like Slice of Life, but I think KOTH is very good.

There are lots of old comic strips that were published in newspapers that could do you well there. Basically all of them that I know of are episodic comedies with no overarching plot. Though I heard newspaper serials were quite popular for a long while before my time. Most people only refer to the comic book industry when referring to western comics, but there's a long history of comics published in newspapers. Calvin and Hobbs is my absolute favorite and an absolute classic from that category. I cannot recommend it highly enough.

What Visual Novels & Indie Comics Can Learn From Each Other–(YouTube)
>>1155
Sorry for my long winded post. I just thought of more and more shit to write about.

I've been recently looking into making a visual novel after I saw this video (Embedded) TLDW is that it cuts down time making a story and adds stuff like music, multiple choices etc. I'd think I would be up to the task of doing one, but there's just one thing.

I haven't read a lot of visual novels.

Not counting stuff that's like 10 minutes long or I really get into. I've only played two.

The First Phoenix Wright game which I beat and had a fun time throughout and Return to Shironagasu Island a game that was recommended on 4chan that I decided to check out. I liked it, but didn't finish it because I got busy n didn't feel like picking it back up.

If anyone is into visual novels, feel free to recommend ones to me. Just no porn games, thank you.

I have also been drawings with friends a lot. There is this program called drawpile that lets you draw with friends. It's been fun.

>Many times Coloring actually hurts the art
It's surprising to hear that from a western comic reader because I always thought colored comics are dominant in the West.

>There was a Batman manga created in the 1960s by Jiro Kuwata to promote the 60s TV show. He'd go on to create 8Man which has a cult following in Japan and the West.
I only knew the theme song of 8 Man and didn't know the fact. You are so knowledgeable.

You mean stuff like "san" or "sama"? We usually don't use honorifics for close friends.
I don't feel like "chan" and "kun" are honorifics, but they can be used by kids for their friends. I heard kids these days prefer "san" though.

The comic is made by Japanese-American, set in Japan and tends to use Japanese words often but, always with a translation there so you can understand.

A lot of things. He's been advertising in the name of fighting back against Nerd (but literally a different person) for almost a decade now, and lately his promotional videos have been getting worse and worse, from praising a poorly reviewed game to talking about Wallpaper Engine's illegal zones to promote other wallpaper software.
