Re: Your life so far (New General Catch-up Thread)

not at all! i agree with all of that in a general sense. what i mean to say is i don't find it to make a case against impostor syndrome. what makes that term a thing is the cases in which it is true (or true enough), and the term remains descriptive in those cases regardless of the examples where th...

Re: Your life so far (New General Catch-up Thread)

haha ugh why did i take the bait Well yes but they're obviously linked at the hip, it's where the attitude comes from, the societal expectation of competence. The opposite attitude of the syndrome is that you're a superstar and everyone else is a scrub. oh you mean dunning-kruger? it's possible for ...

Re: PF Horror Club [Now showing: GLITTER]

haha, i don't know if that's a film school tendency, i know loads of people who never studied film in their life who are like that. there is a way of watching a film where it's like you are trying to 'win'. instead of taking the film as a series of creative choices and approaching it with curiosity ...

Re: Your life so far (New General Catch-up Thread)

Short of actually doing amazing things no one else can really do or genuinely boot strapping your way through life, it's just a reality that certain things in your life are due to privilege, and not just because you "deserve" them. impostor syndrome doesn't have anything to do with privilege or opp...

Re: Dark Souls

haha fuck i'm hyped all over again. that trailer was super evocative. loved the way they're using darkness and silhouettes to imply scale

Re: Windows 10

is there even a reason for practical purposes to upgrade? as long as i can run my games and shit on 7 i'm not gonna upgrade the interface is nicer, DX12 might matter at some point, witcher 3 runs faster in it, MULTIPLE DESKTOPS , it's free imo it's a no brainer unless something you use is specifica...

Re: PF Horror Club [Now showing: GLITTER]

Re: The MOVIE Thread

the first two episodes were directed by justin lin of Furious 7 which might have something to do with it, although it's hard to place. there are a lot of factors

i'm with you, the third episode was the first time this season where i didn't want it to end

Re: RECENT PURCHASE RAPID REVIEWS

i have good memories of playing through the original thief games for the first time back when 3 was coming out, particularly the first, but they're much too long & i couldn't finish them. there wasn't enough meat to their worlds & stories to keep me invested through the extensive play time. enjoyed ...

Re: The MOVIE Thread

those are more or less my feelings. the episode didn't have the confidence or effortless sense of mystery of the first season's pilot but i'm not really interested in getting critical when we're only one episode in. i love that it's very different in scope and structure. opening sequence still best ...
