Are there any types of photos or art that remind you of your past? For me, its photos of lonely roads at night lit by street lamps. Growing up, my family took me on road trips across the U.S. and I've lived in a variety suburban neighborhoods, I've seen plenty of empty streets at night. These scenes make me feel at home.

I always thought of myself as someone who would rather live around mountains, but I recently realized just how nostalgic rolling green cornfields under blue skies make me feel. I know a lot of people think they look boring or ugly, but they remind me of going for drives with my family when I was a little kid.

‘’’Book thread!’’’ Anon, what is the best book you have ever read? Why do you like it? Has it changed the way you view the world?

Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoevsky is one of my favourite books and was a major factor in my eventual conversion to Christianity. I'm not great at writing but I think primarily it has to do with Dostoevsky's understanding of the human condition and without spoiling the story I found the main character's thoughts relatable and the ending in regards to the characters' resolutions rather beautiful in a way.

I can't decide which one but one from Alan Watts. Maybe The Wisdom Of Insecurity, Psychotherapy East And West, Become What You Are, The Way Of Zen, Tao: The Watercourse Way.. I can't decide.
I could never pick a "best" book out of what I've read. I don't really know why. Right now I'm reading Congo by Michael Crichton.

Definitely Journey to the end of the night by Louis Ferdinand Céline. It was the first and only time that a book had really moved me so deeply. I think that this book contributed to change my vision of life and my way of traveling it.

I have to add Thus Spoke Zarathustra to the list because it has helped me a lot in some difficult moments of my life. I always like to come back to it, just to read specific parts when I feel I need it.

tl;dr: Can you recommend me books before the WW2 era?

Aspiring writer here. I've read in another imageboard about the Millennial Writing phenomenon with its tendency to write poor quality dialogues and give wacky personality or apathic personality to characters, specially the female ones. I actively intend to not follow the same methodology as them, and I love writing dialogues so I'm doing good so far. I have read Matilda, and 1984, and I love these books, they kinda help me as inspiration to write narratives and dialogues. But I have a feeling that it's not enough since I have read a few books.

In that thread I have seen someone's response replying with a certain line that resonated within me.
>If you really wanna be sure to not commit Millenial Writing, consider reading books that came out before the WW2 era.

I believe that if I read some of these books my perspective will become wider and towards in the direction I want. I've noticed >>41 and >>39 's mentioned books so I have a good feeling that these are good examples to start.

So... can you recommend me books to read that came out before WW2?

I'm actually thinking about learning Renoise. I've been screwing around with a different tracker and like the workflow.
The basic version is free, but you have to subscribe if you want an unlimited amount of tracks. I still am keeping the option of trying the basic version on the table though.
Because I hate dealing with Wine and want something that works with no hassle. If ReactOS was actually a usable Windows replacement, I'd consider using that for music purposes. Unfortunately, it's basically unusable.

Go antique-ing, estate sales, flea markets, wherever you can go to buy furniture older then you. Because modern equivalents are not as good as the ones that have weathered generations.

Lived long enough in spartan conditions to know that I'm quite ready and able to do it. I've done my stay in a cot on a navy boat down through the Suez and back a dozen times, living out of a cramped 1x3' locker for 9 months at a time. No man truly needs significant space. If you have room to lift your body with your limbs and to cook, you have enough space.
>It's time I hit the open road, boys
I saved up for a year so I don't have to finance anything. It's time to buy the van. I've got a few prospects in mind that I've been scouting out for half a year. One specific pre-built that has all my needs and wants covered. I do want to custom build one day, but today is not that day. Next year or the one after, maybe. More saving!
I'm pretty aware of the trials and tribulations of van life. I camp a lot already and again there was the military on various boats small and large. I am berry averse to staying in one place for too long and I can't really see myself continuing to rent. I don't know what I want off this post other than to give my friends something to talk about for awhile on a cozy night, but if there's any full timer's out there please respond. Anyone less active in their travels are welcome as well! Let's talk the outdoors and alternate lifestyles.
By the way, I'm going full in on an E-350 with an extendable top so I can actually stand my 6' tall self up in there!

Anyone got a good cassette toilet recommendation?

> I am looking for a truck now.
I hope you find the perfect one you want Anon. If money is little object, why not have a brand new rig built by one of those custom shops?

Any ideas where you want to roam about? I'd like to go up into the great Northwest of the NA continent, and work remotely from wherever I'm at.

>I've been wanting a truck camper since 1999 when I saw one in x-men.
Wolverine was always my favorite of that series FWIW.

Comfiest time in my life wood be during school vacations in hs where I wood lay in bed all day or pursue my interests (math, music, lit and of course, vidya)

I dont exactly despise school but interacting with groups of people diminishes my freedom so school vacations are the comfiest.
For one time, my teenage years when vanilla World of Warcraft was the only WoW release. One day I spontaneously asked a certain dungeon party I was in if anyone was recruiting for a guild. There was a recruitment, and I joined it. That guild then just so habbened to eventually become one of the Top 3 guilds of the server, with me eventually getting a full set of Black Wing Lair gear. I was also a Warlock. Meaning it was easy for me, in comparison to almost eberry other class, to obtain otherwise super expensive ground mounts. The Warlock class was also gifted a nigh-broken skill for PvP that helped me to fairly consistently make the Top 3 in Battlegrounds PvP matches. It was the first, and so far only, time in my life where I felt like I lucked into success. Or at least lucked into "success." Because it was also the shallowest time of my life that helped to set me up for reality hitting me like a brick wall in my early 20's, when it was suddenly time to start acting like an adult.

For another time, COVID quarantine. I didn't work for a little over a year. I spent that time watching, playing, eating, and reading whatever I wanted; and exercising and sleeping whenever I wanted. And all while enjoying the schadenfreude of the foolish fighting over toilet paper. I pray for the world to "collapse" again soon. It was truly a liberating time.
Hmmm good question. Probably when I was in middleschool, skateboarding and playing airsoft. Also figuring out how my weiner works was fun lol.

What's you favorite season anon?
I usually love autumn for the melancholy feels and the smell of the forests under the rain.
Winter is really nice if you have a warm and comfy place to spend time in. I like being outside for long walks in the cold night tho, especially if there is snow.
Spring is pleasant, lot of flowers and nice perfumes in the nature. I can feel deep into my soul and my body the rebirth of the nature.

I know it's a season of strife, but Winter...
there's just no other time of year where I feel fully justified in hunkering down and killing time as comfortably as possible. there's something in my mind heart and soul that "allows" me feel at ease. my inner subconscious authority says "it's time. relax."
that is why I love Winter.
I love you, Winter.

That was wonderful. Thanks to whoever OG OP who posted this back in the day.

I used to love Winter snow, but I hate to admit it, but I'm starting to prefer Summer now. But nothing beats a crisp Autumn day meandering throught changing leaves of the woods. OTOH, what can compare to Spring's eternal call to clear skies and renewal?
Don't make me choose, Anon!  :)
