I am actually somewhat tempted to watch this show now. Based on what we’ve seen so far, this could be an unintentional comedy show – Ruby’s facial expressions are just so out of place! Look at her face just after the cop guy talks to her, and again right before she gets on her bike. Pure fried gold! This should could be a potential goldmine for reaction images – and cringe!

Everything from HookTube/YouTube embeds to WebMs & mp4 and everything else music related – not necessarily sapphic in nature, though that is a big plus.

Listening to t.A.T.u. is a guilty pleasure of mine – there are quite a few witch house remixes of their songs worth checking out too. The music video to All The Things She Said is probably the most famous lesbian-themed music video of all time.

I think Vampira explained it best: “Screaming relaxes me so.” (https://www.invidio.us/watch?v=gs0ehPgyD3U)

>I think maybe I just have trouble with loud noises.

Wait, isn’t that one of the indicators of being on the autism spectrum? Also heard that a lot of people with high IQs are easily annoyed and distracted by sounds though.

>Embed related is what I could go to sleep to.

I think I need something with a little more ‘bite’ to keep my mind from wandering – funeral doom metal works wonders, but so does a lot of classical music (Mozart & Vivaldi in particular). But that track was very soothing and peaceful, so I can easily see someone being lulled to sleep listening to it.

>Well well, looks like this is an established allusion.

And if you thought the flower motif on the ‘Skeletons and Suitcases’ book in CLAIREvoyant was a bit on the nose, the opening to Pink Floyd’s animated music video is borderline obscene.

>Do they archive the entire contents of the mag?

Yes: https://archive.org/details/PlayboySpainOctober1982 (Patrick Nagel art on page 9 btw. Wasn’t Playboy one of the first places his art showed up?)

Guessing the quality varies, but one copy from 1968 that I had a gander at was in fantastic condition and high resolution. Looks like it was quite classy too back in the day; interview with Stanley Kubrick, and a bunch of cool ads for beer, liquor, cars, motorcycles, clothes and scents/perfumes.

I definitely have a problem with noises. Self-dianosed probs somewhere on the spectrum.Will never seek out a real diagnosis because psych is pseudoscience.

I remember watching The Wall many years ago and came away from it thinking they had serious issues with women. I wonder if I would see it differently now.

It looks positively tame by today's standards, and more intelligent. Though I remember watching this like 4 hour interview with a researcher who demonstrated fairly strong evidence that Playboy was instrumental in pushing for and normalising pedophilia. Can't remember the researcher's name. Was a little old woman.

Yeah, they don’t make it like that anymore, and in today’s political climate we’re more likely to see a ‘body positive’ (ie fat) version instead. Some of the concept art for the animated Buffy series shows her with a tiny waist as well – like ridiculously narrow even for a stylized cartoon.

>Will never seek out a real diagnosis because psych is pseudoscience.

I used to listen to a psychology podcast, and one of the three hosts said that he had taken a test which said he was on the autism spectrum – he was quick to explain this result way by saying that these kinds of tests ‘only work when you know what you are looking for’. Sounds like a total scam if you ask me, just like everything else about psychology; they cannot replicate studies without getting wildly different results, and you’ve got decades old studies by far-leftist ‘professors’ still being touted in text books.

Would not be surprised if these tests were designed so that a lot of people would get a diagnosis, and they seem to change the goalposts around to include even more people as well.

>I remember watching The Wall many years ago and came away from it thinking they had serious issues with women. I wonder if I would see it differently now.

Never seen it, but I probably should add it to my backlog. What made you think it had issues with women?

>It looks positively tame by today's standards, and more intelligent.

We need to go back. The 1960s one was pretty classy actually; it all went wrong when they amped up the nudity tbh. Less interesting content and more softcore photoshoots just ends up falling between the other ‘classy’ magazines and hardcore mags.

You absolute shitlord!

Nah she was too old for that. One thing that stood out in particular that made me listen more closely was when she pointed out the child molestation joke comics that would be placed next to or within a page or two of sexually explicit images. So basically a reader is jerking it to (or at least sexually aroused by) hot women to suddenly see these comics or ads with children. She made the case that the comics and ads were then being connected to that state of arousal.

I remember when I started the vid I thought she was a prude/fundamentalist or something and then she just kept showing more and more evidence of how fucked up it was. I have no idea of what key words to search to even find the vid again though.

>Remember hearing that Brook Shields did a nude photoshoot at sixteen or so, but don’t think that was for Playboy

brah…

<From 1981 to 1983, Shields, her mother, photographer Garry Gross, and Playboy Press were involved in litigation in the New York City Courts over the rights to photographs her mother had signed away to Gross (when dealing with models who are minors, a parent or legal guardian must sign such a release form while other agreements are subject to negotiation). Gross was the photographer of a controversial set of nude images taken in 1975 of a then ten-year-old Brooke Shields with the consent of her mother, Teri Shields, for the Playboy Press publication Sugar 'n' Spice. The images portray Shields nude, standing and sitting in a bathtub, wearing makeup and covered in oil.

I always loved the quote by Krishnamurti

It's all a haze in my memory now, but from what I remember, women are pretty much just seen as these archtype things

That kind of thing, there is no woman as person if that makes sense. But I imagine if I watched it now I might see it differently, not sure.

>The 1960s one was pretty classy actually; it all went wrong when they amped up the nudity tbh

Yeah, ever since I watched that interview and also had seen snippets of Hefner's life and what the playmates said about him I just left Playboy as something to let die. Is it even still made anymore?

IMHO the only weak links in the series are The Evil of Frankenstein & Frankenstein Created Woman. While The Horror of Frankenstein is often considered a letdown, due to the lack of Cushing as the baron, and the very dark comedic tone, it is a really enjoyable film, and one of the underappreciated Hammer films.

DraculaDracula aka Horror of Dracula (1958), The Brides of Dracula (1960), Dracula: Prince of Darkness (1966), Dracula Has Risen from the Grave (1968), Taste the Blood of Dracula (1970), Scars of Dracula (1970), Dracula A.D. 1972 (1972), The Satanic Rites of Dracula (1973) & The Legend of the 7 Golden Vampires (1974). The two first films are fantastic, and Brides is perhaps more enjoyable than the original despite Lee not returning as count Dracula. The following films does not feature Cushing as Van Helsing till Dracula A.D. 1972, and Lee’s mostly, if not completely, silent Dracula doPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Wew lad. Must be hard to live with such a humble nature as this.

<Four centuries after her death, scholars at the Library of Alexandria catalogued nine “books”—papyrus scrolls—of Sappho’s poems, organized primarily by metre.

IK, just all this knowledge about the ancient Greek world gone forever, with only some remnants surviving. Sad!

>On the question of how personal her poems were; I imagine that, if she was writing poems referencing her brothers by name then, at least some of her poems were personal.

I looked up one of her devotees from Roman times, the poet Catullus, and his article says that he wrote chiefly in the neoteric style of poetry, which is about personal life rather than classical heroes.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Catullus

Sappho isn’t listed as one of the Greek Neoterics, but she ought to, since epic poetry about heroes was the norm.

<Their poetry is characterized by tight construction, a playful use of genre, punning, and complex allusions.

Sound like how her work is described. Plus she had her own system of meter didn't she?

Wasn't there something in the previous article (How Gay Was Sappho?) about some scholars thinking she adapted or used the Iliad as inspiration for some of her work?

Perhaps she was a mix, or just one of a kind.

<Neoterics were a series of avant-garde Greek and Latin poets who wrote during the Hellenistic period (323–31 BC).

Though I just realised that was well after her time. So I guess the concept didn't yet even exist for her to be categorised as such. It would be like categorising Greek drama under Naturalism

I vaguely remember watching it many years ago. I remember getting kind of bored and then wham the last third freaked me out. I can't even remember what it was, something about the recording coming from the church not being from the time they thought it was? I just remember it suddenly becoming much creepier and affecting.

Aye, it does seem to come to a standstill before it suddenly kicks off into high gear at the finale. The makeup job on Kelly (Susan Blanchard) is just terrific. She becomes possessed by whatever that thing in the container is (what we know as Satan?), and tries to bring its father, ‘Anti-God’, into our reality thru the mirror portal. Everything from that point till the end is absolutely perfect. Catherine’s (Lisa Blount) reaction to seeing Susan reach into the mirror portal and help ‘Anti-God’ into our world is one of my all-time favourites – it feels so real and honest…

And that shot of Catherine on the other side of the mirror portal right before it is closed is first rate nightmare fuel.

The shared dream they experience is a broadcast sent back in time from the future (1999), warning them that they didn’t stop it, only delaying it. That bit reminded me of Like Me, wherein Kiya watches Plan 9 From Outer Space. The scene in question is of two characters talking about aliens broadcasting signals and how they are now being able to decipher/make sense of them. The Priest (Donald Pleasence) in PoD says that Jesus was a being of extraterrestrial origin, and it isn’t till the end of the film one of the characters receive the full warning broadcast.

The second, and most obvious, similarity is the final scene, where Brian (Jameson Parker) looks at his reflection in the mirror after waking up from the nightmare – he raises one hand to touch his eye as he stares right at his reflection – just like Kiya did in the restroom mirror where she moved slightly faster than her reflection.

>The second, and most obvious, similarity is the final scene, where Brian (Jameson Parker) looks at his reflection in the mirror after waking up from the nightmare – he raises one hand to touch his eye as he stares right at his reflection – just like Kiya did in the restroom mirror where she moved slightly faster than her reflection.

Watching these, I really want to see a movie I saw half of on tv a few years ago called Broken (I think). People's reflections came out of the mirrors and were taking over. Quite creepy iirc.

http://heimskringla.no/wiki/Main_Page contains a lot of the source texts (the Eddas in particular) in the original Old Norse, and often in the Scandinavian translations as well. There are also scholary texts, and sagas.

The Internet Archive is another great source for free texts on the topics: https://archive.org/

There is a very interesting YouTube series by Maria Kvilhaug that deals with the symbolism of the poems and myths in great detail, and I highly recommend giving her videos a watch. In particular she stresses the importance of translating the names of characters and places – left in their Old Norse (or Anglicised) form they mean nothing to a modern, non-Old Norse speaking reader. The translation of the names are extremely important if we want to understand what the poems and the myths are really telling us.

One thing that most people don’t know about Norse mythology is that the Norsemen believed in a form of reincarnation/rebirth. It was custom that the oldest son would be given his paternal grandfather’s name, the second oldest son the name of his maternal grandfather, and similarly with the daughters; the oldest daughter would be named after her paternal grandmother, and the second oldest after her maternal grandmother. This would allow the spirit of the ancestors live on through their bloodline. In the sagas there are mentions of characters born with the same marks upon their body as their ancestors were inflicted with. In the Helgi poems in the Elder Edda, it is said that the two main characters are reborn and fall in love again and again – at least three times.

Yeah, for some reason I often get Rogan’s videos in the recommended list/sidebar. They (you know who) probably kept it from trending because Jones was being interviewed. The guy’s been de-personed online by every major tech company, and he tends to fight for free speech, and talk about censorship, so no wonder they wanted to keep it from trending.

Just saw that Styxhexenhammer666 did a video on the Rogan/Jones vid. I agree with his take on Jones; he puts on a show, but I genuinely believe he is earnest about most of it (gun rights, free speech, globalism, mudslime/nigger immigration, &c.)

I don't subscribe to Alex Jones, I don't buy shit from his filtermerchant shop, but Styx is a literal e-celeb; a content aggregator for unironic alt-righters. He has almost nothing of value to say. Millions of other people hold the opinion that Alex Jones is just a showman. Millions of people have already thought, repeated, posted online, etc., the entirety of the opinions that Styx expressed in that video.

<oh by the way that's why i prefer to have the home office so i can keep it simple and independent

Alright, consider me triggered. What a fucking stupidly revealing comment. For someone who collects money for "thinkin bout staf" he has CLEARLY never considered who or what paved the way for him being able to do what he does. He is exactly like the SJWs who simply assume that peaceful societies, sidewalks, buildings, and happy people sprout from the ground from nothing. Anybody can stand on a soapbox on a streetcorner, and that's essentially what Styx is doing, he was just handed an enormous microphone - but by whom?

You tell me: In an age where everyone was what we would call bluepilled, trust in the media was massive and uncontested, and only (((globalists))) were able to disseminate information widely and effectively, who was the first person to seriously attempt to match the production values of the MSM in order to get people to actually listen to the message? I'll give you a hint: It was fucking Alex Jones. So for Styx to go and say in his subtext that he's more impartial, that is only because the "moral" choice of having no sponsors, in this instance, is also the laziest choice, and the fact that "impartiality" is the easiest option is due to people like Alex Jones

I don't give a fuck if Alex Jones doesn't believe ANY of what he talks about - the fact is that he is OBJECTIVELY a pioneer for the sharing of unkosher information, and for some uninsightful lazy cuck to sit back in the chair he jerks off in and talk into a $20 webcam while looking down on a man who has literalPost too long.

That is sad indeed. But at least it's written that he had good family and neighbours.

I took it as telling me that my current suffering at that time was superficial and I'd be fine. I love having dreams where I meet or interact with these things, but they are few and far between.

>but then most dreams are just a mishmash of feelings, ideas and memories we have been thinking about recently.

That's why it stuck out. I had not at all been thinking of anything to do with the Green Man or otherworldy stuff. It was an odd dream.

>I guess your answer begs the question: Is she really into you, or just after your blood?

Well, I guess as long as I stick to the moving image I should be safe.

>That is one of the interpretations of the story in Låt den rätte komma in aka Let the Right One In (2008)

I never ended up watching this or the remake. The idea of watching children vampires doesn't appeal to me. Everyone says the original is great though. Do you think I should watch it?

>Btw., do you think vampire Willow from the alternate dimension would be a vampire witch?

Vampire Willow appeared to be dumber than a box of hammers. I doubt she would have the discipline to learn witchcraft. Then again, with all that time on her hands maybe at some point in the future she would pick it up.

Idunno, man. I would probably consider ending it if I ended up like that. Not being able to outside during daytime, blinded & horribly disfigured, and missing one arm…

Aye. I would love to be able to achieve lucid dreaming ‘on command’… It just sounds so interesting to be able to have (some) control of your dreams.

>Well, I guess as long as I stick to the moving image I should be safe.

2D vampiresses? Safe but boring tbh.

>I never ended up watching this or the remake. The idea of watching children vampires doesn't appeal to me. Everyone says the original is great though. Do you think I should watch it?

I really liked the original film. Unlike a lot of vampire films it manages to stay somewhat grounded in reality in terms of tone and characters. It is also surprisingly dark. In a way it is a dark romance about two outsiders who find each other. Then there is the alternate view that Eli is manipulating Oskar into replacing Håkan, her previous ‘helper’.

I think Eli genuinely cared for Håkan, and that they met when he was about the same age as her – as the years passed though, I think they grew apart – he became older while she stays forever young. Unless Eli ends up turning Oskar at some point history will likely repeat itself…

Like Fucking Åmål it feels a lot more real and honest in a way that English speaking films do for me. The snowy setting also helps.

If you do get around to seeing it, I’d like to hear your take on the ending and Oskar & Eli’s relationship – and what you think of Eli not being like other girls.

I’ve got the film on DVD, and there is an audio commentary track with the director & writer – the writer also wrote the book the film is based onPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Yes me too. Every time I realise I'm dreaming, I wake up. Have never got the hang of lucid dreaming. Not really. I guess I can kind of direct how I want things to go sometimes but not with much conscious awareness.

>2D vampiresses? Safe but boring tbh.

True. I imagine if it were anything but 2D, I would either freeze, panic, or channel Buffy. Not very sexy.

What would you do if you met a witch? Wouldn't you be worried you could be turned into a toad or completely removed from existence (ala Thelma)?

It’s like the brain is telling us ‘no fun allowed’ and overrides our efforts. Wonder if there are any techniques you can try to train yourself so that doesn’t happen, or if there’s been any serious research into lucid dreaming.

>I imagine if it were anything but 2D, I would either freeze, panic, or channel Buffy. Not very sexy.

Depends on how you’d find out though, right? What if you met them, got to know them, and only after a while, when you’d already started liking them, she drops the bomb and comes clean about being a bloodsucker?

Not a fan of the OP bloodsuckers myself – superhuman strength, ability to fly, mind control/hypnotism, can turn into a bat/wolf/mist/cat… The idea that she would use seduction to lure in victims is much more interesting and appealing.

>What would you do if you met a witch? Wouldn't you be worried you could be turned into a toad or completely removed from existence (ala Thelma)?

If I knew from the get-go, I’d probably be a tad worried and try to distance myself, based on what I’ve seen of witches in pop culture. First I’d assume she was a LARPer though – a New Age Wiccan or something. A witch might fuck you up real bad if you got on her bad side…

Here are some of the films, TV shows & webseries discussed so far, in the WebM threads over at /tv/:

Dracula’s Daughter (1936) – probably the first film to hint at the lesbian vampire trope. A surprisingly good sequel to Universal’s original ‘Dracula’ film in its own right.

The Vampire Lovers (1970) – Hammer’s adaptation of the ‘Carmilla’ novel by J. Sheridan Le Fanu. Arguably the best adaptation of the story, & with some very good performances, especially from Ingrid Pitt as Marcilla/Carmilla. Stars Ingrid Pitt, Madeline Smith & Hammer regular Peter Cushing. Highly recommended; this may just be the best lesbian vampire film out there. Shout! Factory’s Blu-ray release features an audio commentary track with director Roy Ward Baker, (screen) writer Tudor Gates & actress Ingrid Pitt, excerpts from the story read by Ingrid Pitt, and interviews with Madeline Smith and Hammer scholars.

Lust For a Vampire (1971) – The sequel to ‘The Vampire Lovers’, though it disregards continuity somewhat and all main characters are recast. The very interesting audio commentary with Hammer historian Marcus Hearn, director Jimmy Sangster & actress Suzanna Leigh is worth listening to as well. Honourable(?) mention goes to ‘Twins of Evil’ (1971), which is the third and final instalment of Hammer’s ‘Karnstein Trilogy’, though the character of Carmilla is hardly in it at all, and there is nothing sapphic about it all. Worth a watch if you want to see the ever-awesome Cushing as a witch-hunter, and some beautiful twins in various state of undress.

Fucking Åmål aka Show Me Love (1998) – A Swedish award-winning drama directed by Lukas Moodyson that ‘follows the lives of two seemingly disparate teenage girls who begin a tentative relationship’. Captures the feeling of growing up in a small-town in Scandinavia in the late ’90s and the love-troubles of the characters brilliantly and beautifully.

But I’m a Cheerleader (1999) – a satirical romantic comedy that pokes fun of ‘conversion therapy’/’pray the gay away’ camps. Stars Natasha Lyonne, Clea DuVall & Cathy Moriarty.

D.E.B.S. (2003) – ‘Made in 2003 right in the middle Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

BO of the other board here, just finished can Housewife. Massive spoilers ahead.‎

The first parts reminded me of Amer (even the location of the weird ritual the mother participates in is similar, but with Amer being as derivative as it was it's possible that both were inspired by some earlier work. There's also the amulet and the repressed little girl) and Profondo Rosso (childhood trauma, mentalist that picks up the troubled mind in the crowd) a lot, and the follow up of Mandy (from the house with glass that lets you feel like in nature, to the spooky artist significant other, to the cult and even the horn, some things almost look like someone worked on both movies or something. Even the home invasion was similar), but this is its very own thing.

I'll drop a fuller review when I can but as a primer I'd like to mention that ‎one thing I noticed from the start was the fear to have a child. It's there from the moment the mother acts all horrified at the menstrual blood in Hazel's panties. It's also very similar to the plot of the second season of Fargo‎ in a way (woman agrees with her husband about having a kid but is secretly taking contraceptive pills, then a female friend drags her into a cult that somehow changes her fate forever and consequences will never be the same) but again it's very different in many ways. What really surprised me was the role it played in the end. I was expecting a rape scene, not a birth scene. Very well done and I didn't see it coming at any point. Maybe I was too cynical and expecting it to be like a more violent Mandy because of the cult leader/chosen woman theme.‎

I also wonder if she left the event and came back several times if it was one continuous session until she ran away. The whole search of the amulet seems to suggest it wasn't continuous but it's not very clear. Maybe it's supposed to be that was, to make things more oneiric. The revelation (or was it manipulation) that she murdered her sister reminded me of Kitty and Evelyn in La dama rossa uccide sette volte, except it's reversed here.

Originality would seem to be lacking if you look at the isolated elements of the film, but they were combined in a rather refreshing way. If it was a ripoff (I'm not saying it was but leaving the possibility open)Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

So I just finished S3 last night.

Whitney proposed to Sara and I laughed thinking they were probably separated by now. I actually softened towards Whitney by S3 because she seemed to mature and settle down. I even felt bad that I thought her marriage wouldn't last when I saw them exchanging vows in the final episode. Nek minute, I googled 'where are they now' and no surprises they are divorced already kek.

Meanwhile I found that Jill & Nikki have their own yt channel. They have kids! But they haven't uploaded in three years.
