What have you plebs been watching? How was it? Tell us!
Ya boi's been on a tear this week. We'll run through the movies then finish up with /tv/
True Lies (1994) - My previous knowledge of this movie was only the I M A G I N E meme from /tv/. Genuinely thought this was some tryhard psychosexual drama. NOPE. Turns out its an action comedy movie with one the most kino villain deaths in cinema history. Had a great time with this one, and Jamie Lee Curtis had an amazing torso, shame about the rest of her.
The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993) - Technically I had seen this movie before, but it was during a /soc/ meetup with a 4chan whore like 7 years older and me who still lived with her mom I was tryna pipe so I remembered nothing. Actually everything in her room was themed after this move, like Skellington socks, witch curtains, etc. Red flag galore, but I was like 19 and didn't know better (still would repeat tbh). Anyways, sat down and watched it properly for the first time. I can see why so many mentally stunted wh*te kids built their whole identity around it. Story was ok, songs were meh, but the aesthetic and stop motion technique are superb and worth the watch.
May December (2023) - This is a very recent Netflix movie starring (((Natalie Portman))) and some old white b-word (Julianne Moore?). Movie follows Portman, a young actress, who goes down to Savanna, Georgia, to study the subject for a new biopic/reality slop piece she's working on. The movie description just says she's gone to do so on-sight shadowing of a couple involved in a "tabloid affair", but you soon learn the affair was actually
Manodrome (2023) - L M A O. Bros this fricking movie was KINO. So it's about this disaffected down-on-his-luck 8 mile-esque slim shady white boy (played by Jesse Eisenberg, funny to see where he ended up compared to Portman as he had the starring role in The Social Network (2010)). Anyways, this guy is not really shy, just not really talkative, call him taciturn. He was fired from his factory job and attends some basement gym (the inside of the gym lockers has a guide on how to take muscle selfies lmao). He has a pregnant blue haired girlfriend and he's frustrated with his station in life and constantly feels emasculated by the huge black guys in his gym and disrespected by his woman. He ends up joining this like Andrew Tate/Huberman manosphere cult out in some wealthy suburb, called Manodrome where he meets "Dad Dan" (played by Adrien Brody lmao) and shit begins to go down. This might legit be one of my favorite movies of the whole year, maybe decade. This is what normies think an incel is lmao. I'll post spoilers for this one in the comments, but the ending was fricking great. I was fricking howling and stood up clapping. In a way, it's Midsommar (2019) for white guys lmao
As for tv:
Rick & Morty just had it's worst episode of all time
Slow Horses somehow has this restrained hype that only a great spy thriller can execute. There's a scene at the end of the most recent episode where the rich slimy prep kid with greased hair and a Gordan Gecko suit just chews up the scene with his anglo jaw and smugness for like 5 minutes. Straight gigachad shit only bong actors can do. Legit bongistan makes the best actors, and it's not even close.
The Curse great Emma Stone episode this week. She's obviously pretty, but this week I was convinced of her beauty. I think it's because this show's setting is some ghetto suburb outside of Santa Fe, where everyone else is just normal looking, and she's this fricking angelic apparition carousing through their domain. Still my must-watch recommendation of the season
Fargo slaps like always. Actually this latest episode has a home invasion where everyone was wearing masks from The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993)...which I had finished watching right before booting up this episode
Pantheon about halfway through the second and final season. Give it a watch if you're one of those people who watches everything animated, it's not quite /co/ but not quite /tv/ either.
What an insanely eventful week!
So we had the gaming awards, gta 6 trailer, some warhammer game releasing, some final fantasy 7 rebirth remake advance reiteration thing and a lot of announcements for new games woah.
As always, the same question remains:
What are you playing currently? !g*mers
I'm aware there are previous weekly or so megathreads and I'll eventually add them ( green = official, red = fake, yellow = misc, blue = losercel)

Game to Discuss?
To honor its success at the Game Awards for many called the best game not just of 2023 but of all time, Baldur's Gate 3 must now go up against the most final and persistent judges of all - rdrama elitists. There's @PrincessTeegra's review of the game here which also includes a discussion with DLMO, then there's @birdenthusiast's enthuastic posts about the game here, here and here. Then there's @XD claiming BG3 is superior to its predecessors here and @Patriarch rates the game here and finally there's @SantaSix reviewing the game here. Did I miss anything?
This week's entry will be Baldur's Gate 3
An ancient evil has returned to Baldur's Gate, intent on devouring it from the inside out. The fate of Faerun lies in your hands. Alone, you may resist. But together, you can overcome.

Since it's known that queries made on Marsey Search are collected, future data would probably not be as unfiltered and raw so here are some interesting stats (which was the point of collecting the data anyway) for the period of 21 May 2022 - 15 July 2022.
On the surface it seems like a combination of reportingmaxxing and coomers but I'm too r-slurred and lazy to take a more in-depth look into the data Surprisingly bardfinn's not the top searched user
It's not 100% accurate since most ad-blockers would block any attempt at collecting data but here it is:
Top 25 users searched for and frequency count:
Top 50 subreddits searched for and frequency count:

Lol despite being 1 out of 647 unique users (actual numbers would be higher since almost any adblock circumvents the tracking), that one dude makes up 33.8% of the 11989 searches
Courtesy of carp, a brief summary regarding the elaborate @PlsNoCoal catfish saga for those out of the loop:
A few months after being exposed as a fraud, PlsNope resumed posting on rDrama, though arguably with less fervor as when they were pretending to be a cute neurodivergent goth girl. Despite everything, PlsNope still maintains they are a cis woman:
PlsNope was given her second grass award by yours truly after careful analysis of the PlsNope persona which demonstrated the following:
1. PlsNope has male opinions, such as rhetoric akin to slut-shaming of our own poor homegrown slut, Ted_simp. While not definitive, one would expect to see some sisterly kinship or empathy shown towards a fellow cis woman who also experiences PTSD (@pizzashill traumatic stress disorder).
2. PlsNope has male behavior. As evidenced by the neurodivergent OF thot stalking/catfishing saga of course. They were also previously grassed and did not touch grass. Very sus, what are they hiding? Kind of reminds me of someone I know.. but I must have blackfaced it out of my memory..
3. PlsNope writes like a man. While this intuitively appears to be the case to me, a man, I also plugged a random sampling of PlsNope's long or effortposts into gender analysis cowtools for objectivity and the results significantly skew male.
Now, on to the betting!
PlsNope is a:
- Male voters will win if PlsNope submits a manhand/ambiguously gendered/questionable/low quality grass hand pic OR if the ban from the grass award times out on Jan 6, 2024.
- Female voters will win if PlsNope submits a grass pic clearly showing a females hand, thus proving my conclusion wrong and potentially renewing their base of simps and carps affection/fascination for a notorious femcel foid stalker.
Good luck everyone!
!nonchuds !ranchers where was that Xitter post titled something like "the absolute state of white nationalism in 2023", showing the epitome ubermensch of the aryan white race that are Kanye, Hard-working American Fuentes, and that who loved Hitler and did a mass shooting or rammed into the white house of the sort?
edit: apparently this has been going on for two hours and is almost over
the modern gaming industry is hellbent on replicating with infuriating accuracy the experience of starting a new job. Eager to start, but you have to jump through forty seven pointless HR hoops first. Sign this, fill this form, attend this meeting. Go to this department to get security clearance, get a card, IT permissions, and that's in an IDEAL world where nothing was developed by Indians or Swedes, so in reality it's all janky as frick, nothing works, epic 2FA bro, I'm sure i'll get that sign-in text any day now
All to get a connection error five minutes later, or a 234GB update.
It's not even the games I have a problem with, it's the longhouse HR experience you have to endure just to get to them.
Lol you can't defend your women from Arab male feminist gangs and you will lecture us xD
Frick your mother, you German scumbag.

Picture of the post:
people forgetting that these “unaware” people aren't value neutral apoliticals. the average person has internalised white supremacist and patriarchal beliefs. So being clueless about cultural discourse means they essentially agree, and are bystanders to oppression
Actually I think you just don't realize that there's a lot of people who don't live their life online and really don't keep up with whatever twitter is meltingdown over. Try logging out for a while, you might like it!
actually i was referring to the consistent discrimination i face for being visibly queer, visibly brown, visibly neurodivergent. Offline.
their definition of apolitical is just everything that has been “normalized”'in the environment they grew up in, which is not always a good thing
which is why a key part of g*mergate was the war against queer/race representation. being apolitical inevitably leads to minorities being banished from public life. scratch a liberal and a fascist bleeds etc etc
It has been NINE FRICKING YEARS. Let it die holy frick
I've never heard a person mention g*mergate that wasn't terminally online
Himbo propaganda at its finest. There nothing appealing about someone divorced from social issues because these conversations are not just happening on social media spaces but in news media too. Man is living under the heaviest rock known to man.
Noooo you have to care about events that are 7000 miles away noooo
only white ppl can do this
minority groups are the ones actually affected by most of the discourse. I'd even stretch to say that only white cis men can do this.
just simply not true. you could literally not watch the news and disengage from social media like anyone else, especially if u live in murica.
Spoken like someone who hasn't had slurs screamed in their face for no reason. Lmao please sit this one out.
noooo i have to be terminally online because some people still say BIPOC noooo
Bro I don't know from the river to the sea and I actually use Twitter every day and youtube 24/7 and keep up with politics more than the average person...... I'm privileged for that?🤣🤣🤣 this is some stupid butt shit
noooo you cant just go outside and not care about the news noooo
This does not represent the mass populace
just because you live online or twitter doesn't mean the mass percentage of people do the same.
Chronically online take
None of my friends over 25 are online anymore 🤣 just me they are hiking and living and I'm online learning useless stuff that non online people don't care about at all
One day i will found someone who appreciates my vast austic knowledge of niche internet drama
Only people I have heard that are like this age foreign students coming to the US through scholarships.
This guy doesn't talk to normal people
Ironically the idea that the ”perfect person” is the opposite extreme of whatever being chronically online is is in itself a chronically online take. I live in a small rural town full of people like this and let me fricking tell you it is NOT good.
Be sure to say Hi to @Holly_Jolly_Kong in the comments
He horny. Strange looking peepee though
Gays still want it of course
Average US college professor in current year
CW: Obese black women tweaking
Honestly, I know this sounds harsh, but the leniency is what makes people skip it. They're paying for uni, they need to be dedicated to doing it or unenroll. I speak as someone who had to switch when I wasn't feeling up to doing uni level work years ago.
Dear lord. It's a capitalist expectation for you to turn your work in on time for a university education you're paying for? If you need to handle mental health, then not attending uni is the answer and that's okay. But not doing shit and getting no consequences isn't.
"if you need mental health then dont attend the only place that can land you a well paying job in a field that you enjoy"
Some folks can handle mental health concerns while in school. Some can't. I've been in both situations. But that means taking a personal responsibility and doing what's right for you and putting yourself in the right place.
Which in turn will put you in an even worse spot.. I dont think you understand how depression can affect someone and how society views those people with depression
The foid is giving good advice but these people just want to be useless r-slurs. Also depression is for gay r-slurs
As a current college student, we're definitely not okay. It's hard to care about properly formatting a reference page when you're witnessing a genocide. I feel for all the professors who are doing their best for their students
I wouldn't be bragging about that.
It ain't a brag. It's just life. All of these people were managing to make it through the day despite the genocides going on around the world before October 7th. They can find a way to keep going.
Probably because you were largely unaware and unable to see firsthand what was going on. Students these days have direct access to the numerous atrocities occurring around the world. They also can't afford to live
It's also from the brain damage Covid causes
Literally THIS. Why is no one talking about this?
There's definitely some brain damage but it's not from covid
Oh ffs. People still went tp work when the world wars raged. There's zero excuse for why current day students can't hand in assignments on time.
You have clearly never watched your own family die through a screen or shake in fear under the missiles or cry bc of how cold and hungry they are. This is a public platform are u ever aware the stuff you say are viewed by gazans who are directly affected by this?
just, like, for the record, same about the teachers. and everybody else. we are all deeply traumatized, and a massive percentage of us have literal brain damage from a neurological airborne virus nobody wants to talk about.
the COVID fall out? that's a realness.
also the dissolution of society and the rise of fascism, and the us committing acts of genocide on its own people and uncountable more like that
i don't know how people keep acting so surprised that young people don't want to partake in this bs society anymore when the future we are giving them sucks 😐
I stay up for 24 hours at a time. Why am i having mental breakdowns?
The kids may be r-slurred but at least they're keyed
Today we celebrate that women's sport where women in tight, revealing suits pose with their legs wide open
No! It's not ballet! It's not tennis either!
The West is doomed, you should look at countries like China where speech is free!
Beautiful! Great execution! Amazing landing!
Well I mean you get this shit in China too, it's just China is open and upfront about it. Sure you can cite me specific cases but I can cite you cases that are vaguely harsh or exceptions or people being r-slurred and invalidate your claims!
That was kind of a stretch but she pulled it off!
Reminder that Gonzalo Lira is a "redpill" s*x tourist and not a journ*list at all, and went to prison for sharing images of beheaded Ukrainian soldiers and celebrating, as well as doxxing western journos and Ukrainian soldiers
I can't confirm or deny that he's been tortured while in prison, but I reeeeeeeeally really really wish it were true
Just in case the link changes. I don't know why Instagram does this
These days it's easy for anyone to take a decent picture, even moreso if you're a nerd with expendable income. Therefore you'd expect Stack Overflow's Travel forum's monthly photo contest to be high quality.
You'd be wrong, they're always TERRIBLE. This month's theme is "Festive". The current winning picture is shit:
and third place is currently...
Why would a StackOverflow power user be eating such a sad-looking Christmas dinner alone? It really makes you think.
Past contest entries (in various topics) include:
There's a suitably list of suggested future themes including:
Officials (police, customs officers, diplomats etc)
Unusual modes of transportation
Construction (any work in progress that's meant to enable / enhance travel)
Holiday photos, in which you can recognize people traveling for their (yearly?) break from work
You can find past contests on https://travel.meta.stackexchange.com.

Was trying to record my speedometer but turning video mode on canceled my music so I got pissed which is why I was soyjacking in the background haha. It really wasn't as good without this song playing.
"Nooooooooooooooooooo why isn't my music plaing haha."
haha that was me guys I had a soy moment.
this is what I was trying to get to play. I was trying to time the best part of the vocals to get me peaking right as I hit 100 but then it cut out ruining the vibe. Will have to keep trying. I need to be peaking to climb over 100. if you arent peaking at 120 that's an instant crash
