>>1598 My only suggestion is go for a walk during sunset; you can search up the times online, and chill outside in an empty parking lot in the blue hue of the sunrise, only two moments I’ve found to enjoy myself

Moving to trashchan Anonymous 01/22/2024 (Mon) 17:30:45 No.1552 [Reply]
This is DD, to clear up any further confusion I have decided to move us to trashchan. I have been in correspondence with the admin of trashchan and finalized our movement there. It is scheduled for the same day of this site's closure: March 15th For us the Ides of March will hopefully mean a new beginning

What keeps you up, late at night, while the world quiets down ?
The monkey in my head that won't shut the fuck up.
I spend a lot of time laying there thinking about inconsequential things that inspire me and make me happy. I think about my hobbies a lot and all the various ways I can improve and the projects I can create and how it all makes me feel emotionally passionate about life and living. How most people don't understand it, but that's what makes it beautiful. I think about past adventures and how much they meant to me in that moment, wondering if the people I shared them with think about them as much as I do. They must, I'm sure. Right? Often I'll be on about the ways I should have gone about the day prior. Opportunities to improve myself, missed. Chances at developing social skills lost to the wind. Then I'll think about moments where typical exchanges became so much more because I went out of my way and developed a relationship with a completely random person. I don't pat myself on the back enough for those and tend to fester up thoughts of disappointing exchanges that I, in my mind, wanted more from, but got nothing. Overtly critical thoughts keep me up in a depressing way. They can even cut into the hobbies portion. Maybe I'm crazy for truly enjoying something in life enough to pursue it for years. Maybe I should stop this hobby because everyone thinks I should. It doesn't make sense anyway, why go on? Why not just conform, it makes the most sense. All of these thoughts keep me awake, which positive or not, are bad no matter what. My brother taught me a trick to get past them and fall asleep faster by thinking about an epic character of my own imagination in an anime esque setting going on adventures. This gets me away into dreamland.
>>1662 I know where you're coming from anon, I often think along the same lines. It can be overwhelming to consider all those variables and possibilities, but when you can push through self-doubt and trepidation to actually do something you want to in your waking life, the satisfaction is like nothing else. Then you wonder why you were worrying in the first place!
>>1654 It's a place where I can move at my own speed, but usually time gets away from me, and then I'm here again. 3 AM, 4 AM, wherever.
>>1665 Yes, and all too soon the nauseousness of the world comes back as it stirs awake.

Tell me your dreams, I can do an analysis on them
Just had a fucked up dream about a friend I knew that died years ago. Guy was a little younger than me. Grew up in a shitty neighborhood with the wrong principles for life and ended up being shot and killed for it. The one time I'd been to his house he was showing legit automatic MAC-10s and all this other illegal shit he had. Even pointed a loaded gun at me to try and fuck with me once. Drove like a maniac too, like Walter White in those scenes where he's racing home because of some emergency, but this guy would do this just going to and from work. Dude was wild, but he was my friend and I have many fond memories about him. Anyways, tonight I had a dream there was this big party in the house I grew up in. He was there and so were a bunch of people I haven't really spoken to in a while. He shows me this revolver he just bought and starts pointing it at me just like he did in real life ane I act super non chalant about just like I did in real life, only this time the fucking gun goes off and barely misses my lower back by a few inches. I moved just before it happened and remember telling everyone that I knew the gun was gonna go off pointed at me, but no one believed me. Anyways, my late friend starts apologizing and asking if I'm alright and how it was an accident, but I walk away from him into a separate room in the house and let my family know exactly what almost happened to me. My brother tells me to call the cops, hands me his phone to do so, and I convince him to subdue my friend before the cops arrive. I start sobbing because I realize just how close I was to being killed. I call the police hysterical and this nice old lady on the phone assures me that the police are coming and that he'll be taken away for a long time. She even talks about the insurance check we're gonna get from the bullet hole and starts making small talk about whether my mom should start renovating that part of the home now. She was really sweet. There were things I missed as she was speaking to me and she gladly repeated them when I asked. The dream ended with me crying and hiding in a room by myself in my house as I heard the wailing of my friend as he realizes he's going to prison and his life is over. I noticed some kids in the neighborhood outside a window looking over at our house wondering what happened. There's plenty more vivid fuckery that occurred tonight, but I'll only tell this one arc of it. I was thinking about this friend a bit today, so I'm not surprised I dreamt about him. Still though, I was very disturbed when I woke up and thought about it. I don't believe in dream interpretations, but came to late because of how messed up I feel and decided to share. The worst thing about that dream was hearing him wailing in fear and sadness. I can still hear it and it sounds so real. I contemplated for a sec about how me calling the police on him maybe would've saved his life, but realized that people make their own decisions. If he hadn't been killed in a gunfight, then it probably would be something else. Only then he'd resent me. I miss him till this day, but it is what it is. People die I guess, then they come back to haunt our dreams. Sorry for the fucked up story, but typing this out made me feel a lot better. Gonna try to catch some more Zs. Wish me luck

Hello everyone! Hope you're all having a good night :) I just upgraded my gaming laptop after 7 years and I'm really enjoying not having to use a graphics card that's completely burnt out! High spec games can run again, but what really changed was my ability to render edits again and start making videos like I used to do a couple years ago. I finished one up the other day and felt great about it. What's your creative outlet, late chan?
>>1674 Hi anon I slept well but not enough and I have a long boring work day... Anyway if everything works as planned all this shit must stop soon. >gaming 'puter I recently bought my first computer with a graphic card, I never really was into gaming and I was content with a few retrogaming to do without until then. Did I play more now ? No. Few days ago I did try to install Steam on my Linux Mint and it was a pain in the ass, nothing I tried worked expect the Flatpak and I avoid installinbg Flatpaks. Also Steam is clearly not my cup of tea : too much focus on social and multiplayer, too much crappy DLC, too many bloats and a crappy interface. Also I just noticed how modern gayming is clearly not my thing. Guess I will stick to Linux, emulators and indie games or maybe try Lutris instead a day or another.
>>1672 they beat earnings, QQQ up 1.33% after hours. ffs, yeah I'm going booking a weekend vacation, I need a break. I haven't spent any of the points on my credit cards, so the plane tickets will be free, just gotta cover the cost of a night at the hotel

Sometimes, I think about this board Anonymous 11/06/2023 (Mon) 02:27:21 No.1187 [Reply]
I come back here a lot hoping for that same magic I felt on the original board and I hate to be a debbie downer but it's nowhere near as strong as the OG vibes. Late City felt like a real place sometimes. The discussions on that board and the type of content you could find was nothing like any board I'd ever been on. A prerequisite to visiting was a nice somber almost Silent Hill esque ambience I'd play through my speakers, no lights on and of course it had to be night time. It felt like I was in another world and no board has ever made me feel like that. I appreciated it so much whenever I'd visit, but damn I wish I would've known it was all just gonna disappear one day. I don't go on boards too often, so every time I had that feeling about coming to Late City on a nice cool night, it was an event. That's all. I don't have more to say if you even consider anything I wrote as saying something. Just wanted to vent a slight frustration and post for the first time in forever. I miss it, lads :/

>>1187 >>1562 seconding this. When I was NEET I was a regular on the original late and it was such a unique experience. Playing deep lofi, lights off, in my room, everyone asleep it was magical. I love the magic unique asthetic that /late/ is. I loved to post in the visit thread and giving updates on my life situation, reading others posts and partaking in the friendly and kind convos. I hope we can make the new board akin to the original one.

What brings joy to your life? Anonymous 01/31/2024 (Wed) 04:08:44 No.1602 [Reply]
Write a few things about what keeps you going through everyday life.

>>1645 Joy in the simple things yeah? X)
>>1646 I'm a simple anon with simple pleasures. How about you anon?
>>1639 More than anything, I feel it stems from there being true good and high quality things that exist made by people with passions. Notice them enough and you can derive your own self replicating passions from them. This isn't the one all be all, but it's how I enjoy things and keep life interesting in my own way. Natural beauty will always be a thing, at least for the foreseeable future. Getting out into nature, especially at night when no one is around is a truly good thing. Not everyone has the luxury of this experience whether that be from an unsafe area they live in or being completely localized in a giant decrepit city. If you aren't predisposed to the aforementioned living conditions, I highly recommend getting outside ASAP and being alone for a bit. Relationships are a big one for some. Cultivate them or they wither and die. You meet people and there's a connection you both share. If either party isn't putting in the effort, then there is no more connection. Keeping in touch with family and friends that you recognize as people that reciprocate your feelings is a good thing. Bonding with people you really care about can make you feel on top of the world if done right. You are gonna be okay

Doom wads and mods Anonymous 01/25/2024 (Thu) 01:18:08 No.1558 [Reply]
I've gotten started playing classic Doom on PC, and looking for some good wads and maybe mods to try out. Does /late/ have any recommendations?

>>1580 Sounds cool!
The map layout is just about finished. The main thing that's left is the final fight area. After that, I can get started building the actual map. I'm excited to bring this little world to life and share it!
>>1580 >>1610 Nice anon, can't wait to see it.
>>1579 >I was more interested in the idea of making music for them. Same here, and a lot of my stuff back then was pretty bland and repetitive so I never used it anywhere. I want to try making stuff again now that I'm decent at music, but I don't know what a good program would be for MIDI editing. Do you have any recommendations?
>>1634 I just used the FL Studio piano roll when I was on Windows. Now I'm on Linux and trying to get used to LMMS, but that's pretty neutered. There are other programs like Rosegarden and Qtractor, but those on the other hand don't seem as straightforward. Furnace is a really nice tracker for chip music but unfortunately has no MIDI export option, which is a shame because it's simple to learn the basics of and features a pleasantly unobtrusive interface. I think it would be nice for more conventional forms of electronic music if it could export MIDI files to be used with a standard DAW. I haven't gotten around to digging into Renoise yet, but it feels cluttered to me in comparison.
