Sounds cute. I really ought to go for a walk this weekend. Foxes should be out this time of year, and they are cute.
I went for groceries and I realized I didn't bring enough money when I was checking out, and a man who was behind me realized it and gave me some money, enough to be able to buy the stuff. It's good that there still are /kind/ people out there.
I've been working on getting my new computer running the way I want. I'm hoping it'll go well and that I can adjust reasonably well.
I am an immortal soul waiting for the next serenade
I am the caged clown dancing volcanoes
I am finding it strange to be anything at all

Turns out that you feel less bad when you drink water.
It has been a while since I've exerted myself to the point that I can no longer perform the task at hand.
It's a disappointing feeling.
I did some body weight squats out of the blue last week and I couldn't move for two days afterwards.
I’ve started on a weightlifting program 4x a week. I kinda fell off the wagon with fitness during covid when the gyms closed and haven’t quite gotten back into the swing of things until now. I’d like to drop some bodyfat and get /fit/ again asap. Wish me luck!
You can make it Friend, do your best! :)
Thinking about buying a laptop to watch teh animes in bed. Unfortunately most laptops are lame and ultra lightweight these days which goes against my wants and needs, and the heavy laptops are quite a bit beefier than I'm willing to pay for on what will be exclusively used as a glorified DVD player and probably VN machine.
Is a Blu-Ray drive really so much to ask for?
Whats your price range, anon? Im pretty sure you can still find some relatively large laptops for low prices. They’re in more of a budget category, but maybe you don’t mind. Are you looking for one specifically with a bluray drive?
I imagine he prefers the aspect of actually owning physical media and having a dedicated player for it. I personally don’t care either way, but I can understand the appeal.
I know what you mean. I have a new computer case that I thought from the description would have room for my Blu-ray drive, but when I got it I saw it wouldn't fit. To me a disc drive is a necessary feature even if I don't use it very often.
Tbf disks drives are barely used by most people anymore since most media is streamed at this point. I know I haven’t used a disk drive in about a decade, personally.
Sure, I download most things, but if I see a physical copy of something that looks kind of neat but wouldn't normally think to watch, I'll usually pick it up. Sometimes it works out, other times it does not.>>3972
I found a good choice, I guess I was taken off guard by the cost of mobility. Or maybe just seeing the price of a complete computer in this case.>>3974
Yeah, I was kind of disappointed when it was difficult to find a case with a disc drive. It wasn't a priority at the time, but came to bite me in the ass later…
Fortunately you can just open the case I have and have a loose disc drive in a pinch.>>3975
This is true. I can understand why it is an uncommon thing, but I just found it odd that it is so difficult to find these extra options. Sure, most people don't need it, but there should still be a market to some extent. Think about all those unfortunate people that only have CD players in their car! Nobody is going to burn CDs for them in this day in age!
Ah. I kinda get it, there surely must be some sovl and appeal to physical media. Personally, I would like to own some physical media too, but the problem is that it costs money, while digital is free (unless for some reason you choose to NOT pirate).>>3977
I do not stream anime, though. I rather torrent it.
Also, I do not think weebs generally look like the guy in that comic.
>>3978>the problem is that it costs money, while digital is free
It isn't an issue for me. I don't really expect anyone to go out and buy physical media, seeing as I primarily torrent as well, but as I said in my last post, it is just a way to get myself to watch stuff I wouldn't think to otherwise.>Also, I do not think weebs generally look like the guy in that comic.
"Today's mixed-up weebs" certainly do a lot of the time. Well, where I live anyway.
I mostly torrent things I want, but I buy hard copies of my favorite movies in the best quality I can get. I recently bought and ripped a game I really like from CD just so I have a copy that isn't on Steam because I couldn't find a download of it.
As easy and convenient as storing everything on a hard drive is, I think physical ownership is important. feel like people should try to have media they really like on hand when possible. It makes it harder for people to take them away from you or alter them in any way. Look at how people have been able to restore the Star Wars trilogy in 4K from collectors' film prints after the movies were edited and the original versions kept out of circulation.
>>3978>generally look like
I'm not a fan of stereotyping anything really, but I especially hate that the word weeb has become an insult and meme pretty much everywhere online, ironically while anime has become more mainstream.
Being called Otaku was better, at least people who knew what it meant were part of the subculture, now everybody has a new word for something they can shit on without knowing anything more about that topic than a few jokes.
Let's take anything social conformity does not agree with and put it in a bad light, so we have something to laugh at and shame people who dare to do their own thing.
Guess I want to say that I think being weird is being great! And stereotyping is bad and makes us into zombies
I think there is a difference between a weeb and an otaku.
As for what people call me, it doesn't make a difference.
I wouldn't talk about my hobby in a self-deprecating way either, you don't see for example sport fans talk about themselves in the same way usually, but I see the psychological aspect of just not taking myself too seriously either I guess
It's a joke. Kelly is the comic artist of The Onion.>>3982
I had a coworker once that described themselves as a weeb without any hint of irony.
Today when I was outside, I saw a girl wearing something that looked like a school uniform, almost anime-like. A white dress shirt, and a green pleated skirt with a grid pattern.
School uniforms are uncommon in my country, even in private schools, so I wonder if that really was a uniform for her school, or if she was wearing something like that because she felt like it, or if it was some sort of cosplay.
Nevertheless, it was nice finally seeing a 3D female wearing cute clothes. I was getting reaaally tired of only seeing 3D females wearing masculine clothing (pants/jeans, etc).
…Am I a creep?

I don't think there's anything wrong with it, though many people would say otherwise nowadays.
I think the timeless popularity of animal videos shows that people just like seeing cute things. It's pleasant and it's soothing. And since cute girls are cute, it's nice seeing them.
There’s nothing creepy about liking to see people where nice/cute things. It’s something I appreciate too. When I visited Japan for a few months I got used to seeing people put an effort into how they dress, and it was quite the shock returning to North America where no one seems to care how they look.
Please don't /pol/-lute this place, friend.
I don't understand how people can diet without working out. I need to do cardio to counter the calories I consume. I enjoy eating too much to resist.>>3981>Guess I want to say that I think being weird is being great!
It is but my aversion to not let it be known that I am an otaku comes from the fact that people who wouldn't associate with anime do now. A school classmate of mine who was a delinquent unironically has anime stickers in is car now. You can see it as old guard who is wary of newcomers.>>3994
I need to get back into the practice. Thanks for the reminder, friend.
The Japanese have better options when it comes to clothes though.>>4015
Delinquent manga is great.
I saw a couple in love yesterday. The girl was giving the guy the "I want to spend the rest of my life with you" look and body language.
It's nice that that sort of thing happens, but it made me a bit sad that I'll likely never experience it.
