I don't have enough data on most of you.

Say soemthing political here to be added in a few days when
I get back from my buddy's ranch. it's near yosemite

(3 days of dogs, guns, atvs, alcohol, board games. a few
conservatives but also some decent woke liberals will be
there). It might be raining too much to ride the quads,
we'll see

the current compass

with this (excerpt, less than 1 min).

I gotta be predatory to get some listens, but I doubt many

update with some "historical" picks.

4. dog_belch. most of you probably knew him better than me,
and talked to him on soulseek etc. I never did. It's
possible my memory is corrupted. I remember him espousing
some conservative viewpoints, specifically in regard to
decades old situations in South America

5. w M w. An oddball for sure, there was a thread where he
said he wanted to go vegetarian ("at least a free range
animal has a chance to BE, to enjoy life"-- something along
those lines). His other concurrent thread would have been
NIGGER MILK, about chocolate milk.

6. hedpukker. Less known user overall, but he lived close to
me in Santa Cruz, California, so I always paid attention. At
one point he posted a bunch of pictures of hardcore hipsters
at a festival in San Francisco. He's probably moved further
left now.

7. jivverdicker. Controversial pick maybe, but jivver I DID
talk to a bit on slsk. A few hours worth. The man was based,
and kind of a dick here to some people. He passed away
before the left became as militant and sanctimonious as they
are today, but I have a hard time picturing him joining
their political fray. I think he woulda just kept to himself
like most good users (me not included) here.

ijonspeches and epic megatrax, shits on libertarians every
single chance he gets, in line with the average post 2016
progressive. But we all love him sincerely <3

i was bottom-left last time i did one, pretty much
eco-anarchist. though if there's ever a meaningfully
socialist party with a chance at power i could see myself
voting that way. i don't include starmer's govt-in-waiting
in this btw, fuck that flag-draping idiot

yeah that #2 spot is pretty popular

libertarianism is not actually practical with this many
people. It was a good starting point. I tend more often than
not to vote in line with #2.

yeah not meant to be a diss at all. I'm sure marlowe would
say he's bottom left too, honestly, so I moved him there.

though a lot of people don't really own up to how much
authoritarianism they actively seek with their votes. (the
libertarian in me says basically any government=
authortarian. as in fucking do it or we'll take away your
rights at gunpoint).

Even though it was just a meme compass, I updated it before
bed to account for everyones genuine individuality and
personal claims. I also added where I suspect umbroman lies,
though he gets biblical on our asses and it's hard to say.

last meme compass

i wondered what would take you down alcohol if you’re high
on coke the answer is simple benzos which is the same thing
they’d give you probably not always if you’re hooked on
alcohol caffeine is good but not enough believe me you have
fast heart beating go benzos (this is after days or weeks?
of drinking)

booze and coke combine to produce cocaethylene which is
heavily cardiotoxic, benzos are addictive as fuck and can
kill you, esp mixed with booze and/or opiates. which is the
only really fun way to do em. still, prohibition and lack of
info is the real killer

Points: 22366 Status: Regular | Show recordbag



well i've indeed shifted more towards authoritarianism

the test

key question for this result is probably the question
(paraphrasing): having only one party can make for quicker
progress, because you don't need to bother with democratic
processes. i disagreed, but not strongly, because i just
don't know. i want democracy, but the party system we have
now in the West isn't the bees knees

the big problem with the test is that it comes from where we
are now. so with the question 'Military action that defies
international law is sometimes justified' i chose 'disagree'
and not 'strongly disagree', because current international
law isn't that just.

i think this thread is fun, so i don't want to get too
political about it, but 'the left became as militant and
sanctimonious as they
are today' is just standard backlash. 'woke' doesn't exist,
it's just people rightfully claiming what's theirs. there
are unjust hierarchies, the big ones being:
patriarchy, white supremacy and capital. those need to be
brought down, not a little, but totally. how much 'totally'
determines how left you are.

and then there's the authoritarian/libertarian. that one
gives me a bit more of a challenge to think about, probably
because i've grown up in just one system of government. my
opinion is that it isn't authoritarian if you use a
government to make the playing field more level. though it
sure would feel that way to some, but taking away
privilege isn't oppression

me? at my root, pragmatic, but i like to dream and imagine
and i can wind up with well-intended ideas that won't
work... then, i know i do this, so we collapse back to
pragmatic. then i'm a bit of a soft touch, that i give
people the benefit of the doubt too often, but now that i'm
getting older i've been burned enough times that is now mild
enough to be ignored. i believe in universal basic income as
a concept, but i do not believe it will ever happen -- or,
really, that if the US government tried, it would screw it
up. but i'm not so far that i'm elon musk, pragmatic but an
increasingly spoiled billionaire who decides "it'd be more
pragmatic to let russia have ukraine." instead, i'm
pragmatic enough to say: "if the west gave russia ukraine,
the mouse will need a glass of milk with that cookie,
please?" but then also pragmatic to say that US congress is
a knife-edge tug of war between two camps of polarized,
self-serving twits, and someone might just go ahead and
authorize russia to take it anyways even though they know
how much that will fuck things in the long run. meanwhile
i'm pragmatic enough to see that taiwan is a bit naive about
"china won't actually do it, nah" as china is crossing their
fingers, like, "pleeease, please send the good US drones to
ukraine, it'd be nice to get a few before invade taiwan next
few months. but then i'm pragmatic enough to say they are
like Unvaccinated Capital of Known World, lots of rural
population, one doctor for per 3k people, so maybe they'll
donald trump themselves

i don't really understand what liberal and conservative
mean, anymore. no one ever uses the teams other than to...
say which team they're on

Milo Yappalottapus. I came up with his name -- the one thing
that The Donald and i share is giving people mocking names;
he's even landed on a few of mine at times, i.e. Ron
DeSanctamonious -- I came up with his name within five
minutes, if that, of reading about him in google news, for
whatever horrible shit he said to get himself cancelled the
very first time. Now he's very smug about trolling Trump,
and, well, that in and of itself I am sure pleases him [same
deal, I guess we have at least one thing in common] but his
objective goal was "look at all the talent you're missing
out on" and the guy is apparently "good" at math but also an
unabashed anti-semite, and so he was saying, "you're going
to reject all this talent just because [even shit trump
won't say]? you are a fool and i am going to prove it to you
by having him impress you over lunch without knowing a thing
about him being a nazi." and it worked a treat.

meanwhile, for trump, there is no right and wrong; there is
only power. he only flipped on them because it made him look
really bad. he didn't give a fuck about nazi whatever, one
way the other or. i think that's what most people don't get
about him. when you hear him talk of his "brand" he means
his power. that it is a rigid, robotically-followed canine
butt-sniffing mindset, where he fawns over those he sees as
carrying more individual might (putin, XJ) and then totally
shits on anyone below him on the ladder. that, if it makes
sense, it's that putin can do whatever the fuck he wants,
while he's still hemmed in by courts and shit. it's not
about america. it's the [personal, individual] power he
respects

ohhh one night I was in a hypnagogic state not quite able
to fall asleep, for hours, because a dripping tap was
playing lush IDM melodies


i got my covid booster yesterday and my arm is sore and not
quite able to fall asleep. asleep enough that getting up
would supremely irritating, and, furthermore, that would
mean moving, and my arm is sore. so -- this made sense at
the time -- i create a sheet of notebook paper and start
noting things down for later, pretty much all of which i've
lost.

retained is: one (1) cool band name, an internal argument
about variations thereof, and a fuzzy image of my notebook
paper -- as if all but this one band name were redacted.
that i have had this in hypnogogia before. probably the
worst is i was was... editing audio using the cubase sx
interface with functions available to me like: chop,
duplicate segment, move segments around, and even reverse.
that i had three tracks of audio, and i had a pretty good
track going and then i sort of lurched awake; had to pee.
and all i had left was, like, that old-skool corny effect
where you shut a computer off and the screen briefly shows
inverted colors -- i had the picture of my three tracks,
where all the slices were, the blank spots. but i'd lost all
the audio

band name retained was: @sum!

"At some point" was the original genesis, and i'm arguing

fuck it, @some. is crap stylistically in comparison.
especially because the former -- people will misread it as

and alright; sorted. i write it down in the upper right
corner. i was successful enough at sleeping that i lost the
rest; probably about 1/3 of a page worth
