It doesn't have the bite of 5, it doesn't sound as sweet as 4. It's a compromise that pleases nobody.

This past month my hobby has been trying to decide if I like it better with the treble at 4 or at 5.

It's too early to make solid conclusions.

They are ideologically committed to allowing the rightoids to stay, because they beleive there is more possibility of converting them to the left if they are allowed to hang around a leftist space that isn't terminally retarded.

One of the big problems with other leftist subs is that they are isolationist, banning anyone who isn't already one of them, so they serve absolutely no purpose whatsover in terms of promoting leftist thought and bringing in new supporters.

With stupidpol, the thought process is that due to the nature of modern political discourse, most of them are only socially conservative, and that functionally, if they can be brought around to the left economically, it makes no difference if they support gay rights or not.

It is accurate to call stupidpol class reductionist, the key is they don't think that's a bad thing.

I don’t even understand what the fuck CRT even is

So how do you know it isn't what they think it is?

This is part of the problem with stupidpol honestly: The idpol they jerk their knee against really is that stupid sometimes, so it's hard to tell which way around it is.

He was the Obama of his day. Young, charismatic, the media loved him because he could be their paper-selling celebrity as well as the President. On paper he should have gone down in history as one of the "greats".

I think the important thing to consider when pondering over his real character is that he came from a kind of rich playboy/war hero background, giving him that Bruce Wayne type of God complex. He wasn't used to failure, and he didn't know how to handle it, and his early experiences in office set a lot of realities crashing down on him. Arguably he was concerned about his reputation above all else, but I also think he had his eyes opened in the worst kind of way.

Basically being the President redpilled him and he sperged out.

Vox have been very plain and obviously bourgy from the start. Absolutely every publication they are responsible for just drips insular PMC elitism.

Well yeah, naturally with analogue tech it's pretty much the only practical way to do things, but in the digital context most people here are familiar with practical limitations are getting fewer and fewer.

Generally I will cut them a lot of slack when it comes to balance, and I'm not a competitive player so I don't mind of the game is a little lopsided here and there.

But the failure to replace the gauss special rule for 8th onwards simply demonstrated a lack of understanding of the faction. It wasn't taking away something that was too strong, it was taking away something the faction relied on.

This method of working has very little to do with the sound, you can acheive the same thing different ways.

The reason we usually do it that way is because ten-fifteen years ago your CPU would melt if you tried to put a reverb plugin on every track lmao. Probably still true today depending on your rig.

A lot of vocals in modern stuff like Foo Fighters is double (or more) tracked. I'm not a huge fan of the way it sounds, but nevertheless that's how they do it- It's similar to layering guitars, when you pan them the slight differences between each take create size and girth while retaining a centred image. If you only recorded a single track you can use a stereo-width plugin or the old short delay trick, but it won't have quite the same effect.

It is also quite heavily compressed yeah. When recording aggressive vocals I do like to go very heavy on the compressor and restraint be damned. I know it might seem like a shame when you got such a crispy clear sound from such a fancy expensive mic, but it works. You shouldn't need to give the vocals any more reverb than the overall mix, it's not black metal.

tfw removing one overpowered special rule from a faction leaves it with a glaring weakness that completely cripples the army for several editions

GW rules designers really have no idea why they are doing lol.

The BA one isn't bad. Incursors are arguably the best troops choice for BA right now, it's just a shame it only gives you five; and Aggressors definitely aren't bad, the power fists make them one of the only truly hard hitting Primaris units in melee so far. I would hesitate to call the DA one better because it's entirely shooty units, if you were making a Primaris only Blood Angels army, you'd probably end up wanting the units out of both boxes.

I will withhold judgement until we get to see how based the proposed "Woke Watch" segment turns out to be.

The whole thing sounds like a terrible concept, but I don't know if we can assume right away where the bias will lie. By that I mean, it will almost certainly have a right wing slant, but by the sounds of it it not necessarily pro-establishment, which is the real problem with news media.

Either way it's not like the UK needs another right wing outrage machine. We already have the Daily Mail, which I am consistently baffled at how many people take seriously, instead of recognising as clickbait, fabrication and lies.

I'm reaching a point in my life where it's starting to look like a reasonably fair assumption that anything bad? Probably the CIA. It's always the goddamn CIA. By this point I would not at all be surprised if covid was the CIA. If a meteor smashes into Earth and wipes out life as we know it, I would have no trouble believing it was the CIA.

Others merely adopted the fur. I was born in it, molded by it.

I'm a pretty old school fur. 90s kid who had my mind corrupted by all the furry videogame mascots and cartoon characters that were around back then. Some time in my teens I discovered the wonders of furry porn, and that was it for me.

The whole fursona thing is really more just an Internet alias, because back in the old days before normies took over, people didn't use their real names and shit all over social media, and I always preferred it that way. It also triggers a certain kind of asshole and I enjoy that.

We succeeded. We burned their homes, bred with their women, and made their recessive-gene-having asses into an endangered species in their own homelands. I'll not have my people's atrocities understated.

All that was much earlier on than the existence of the modern day UK mind you. This was back when it was still Wessex and Mercia and all that shit. Dragons still existed and the court jester was the most sleeper OP class.

"Introductory" and "deep cuts" are kinda at odds with one another in metal, because generally the more obscure you get, the more of an acquired taste it becomes. But nevertheless here are a few you wouldn't usually find on baby's first metal playlist:

Bluesy/doomy:

Pentagram - Relentless Angel Witch - S/T Lamp of Toth - Portents Omens & Doom

Jazzy/proggy:

Voivod - Outer Limits Realm - Endless War Vektor - Black Future

Of course there's also stuff like Opeth, which is quite mainstream but a blues/jazz fan has every reason to check them out. I'd start with Still Life.

More underground metal is often much more pleasant to listen to.

I'm really into a ton of black-thrash, and part of the reason I think is not just the d-beats and old school riffing, but the stripped down production techniques.

Listen to Flagellator or one of Slaughtered Priest's albums from the mid-2000s, and they all have this super gritty, but not messy, kind of production that just puts a cranked Marshall amplifier and some nice close-mic'd drums in your face.

I don't understand how metal got so overcomplicated. With very few exceptions, it's drums, a bass, two guitars and vocals. You really don't need to fuck around with that. How the fuck did we end up here.

As for rock- The first Danzig album is one of the finest examples of rock production from the last fifty years, IMO. That's my benchmark when I think of a punchy mix with plenty of space.
