It has been almost 5 years now. It feels weird to me that so much time has passed, but here we are.

An independent home for /late/ has been kicked around for years now, but it is only today that it became a reality. We owe it to Nax for much of making it happen, and Deadly, for being Deadly and funding the server.

Enjoy, sleepy anons

I feel like /late/ and /kind/ are sibling boards and I don't know where the latter went. They had a board on Julay and used that as a bunker to their own imageboard but I don't know the address or even if it's still alive.

It's not super active, but certain people pop on and off a few times a week. It's fun to explore, because there are lots of builds here and there, and some hidden ones too.

You don't need to do any of that. The host just needs to set the server config setting to offline and install a mod that password protects users so pirates can't steal names and cause issues.

I've been there, back in 2018 I read 6 books in the year which is more than I ever read in a year before, and when i tried to move on to War of the Worlds and Dantes Inferno I just couldn't get past the first chapter and what chapters I did get through I couldnt recall what had happened.

I've been playing Trails from Zero.The cast is great, my favorite from any trails game so far. I think the game benefits from keeping the same four primary members in your party for most of the time. It really feels like you get to know them. One of my gripes with Cold Steel was with how large the cast was none of them really felt all that unique. After their story section you would just drop the characters you didn't like and never really learn much more about them. But yeah, the Cross Bell arc has been really solid so far.

The sega genesis had some amazing music for its time. Midnight Resistance is pretty intense - for a Contra clone.

I've been looking through blog archives recently and I've starrted to run thin. I think blogs are peobaly the last vestages of the weird internet. Post some links to comfy/wierd blogs, bonus points if they're still active.
this is something i spend way too much time doing. I can't tell you how many hours of classtime i've wasted on diaryland.com reading randos diary entries from the early, early 2000s.

here's a fav blog that isn't on diaryland: http://roadsideweirdness.blogspot.com/
also http://unusualkentucky.blogspot.com/search/label/cemeteries

both havent updated in quite a while, unfortunately :(

Fray is lovely. It was less of a "blog" and more of short stories with comment sections full of similar stories. Fun to read and from the early 2000s when the internet was fresh and blogs were peaking.
(here's the "Hope" section: http://fray.com/hope/. here's two of my favorite stories: http://fray.com/drugs/scar/01.html & http://fray.com/hope/blackout/)

This guy's blog isn't anything special, but it's fun to read entries from '98-'04. https://kottke.org/98/03/

end of the night Anonymous 05/09/2020 (Sat) 02:46:12 No. 841 [Reply] [Last]
it's getting early, a while ago I started hearing the birds starting to chirp, now they are pretty loud, in chirping terms of course, it's slowly getting bright. Personally I am not a fan, it makes me aware the day is coming, the quiet I so love about the night is coming to an end, having the world for myself and the websites I decide to share the time with will be no more as the bothersome, hectic day comes around, along with the expectations and people starting their day going about.
What are your thoughts on the end of the night? Do you like hearing the birds waking up? It makes me a bit afraid, even though nothing will happen.

I like it, for sentimental reasons.

One comes from having read The Odyssey many years ago.
https://kottke.org/18/04/tracking-the-appearances-of-rosy-fingered-dawn-in-the-odyssey

I had been habitually staying up all night, and one morning saw the sky painted fluorescent orange and pink. I had to go out and climb the hill and look at it. Rosy-fingered Dawn.

I was afraid of going outside in those days. Thought I'd get mugged or something, but I made a habit of running at that hour anyway.

the birds just started for me too

no way I'll sleep now
it's /early/ for me now. i find it comfy. everyone else in the house is still asleep. i ate some blueberries and looked at the nice pink and blue sky. saw some deer run across the field and a plane passing far in the distance, thousands of feet up. i want to make some coffee but i don't want to wake people up with the sound of boiling water.
it's very comfy. course it doesnt last long, as normies awake very soon. but while it lasts it's one of the comfiest times of 'night'.
Due to corona-chan, my sleep cycle drifts forwards a few minutes each day. I once spent the whole day awake a few weeks ago.

Still, early is pretty nice. There was a nice birb sitting on the roof of the shed.

What you studying? How is it going? What languages do you speak?

I'm currently using French for Reading by Karl C. Sandberg and Eddison C. Tatham. I like the structure (very brief grammatical explanations followed by a lot of practice sentences) and wish there were books in other languages I'm learning that are as good as this.
been trying to learn russian for quite a while but duolingo sucks
been thinking about going through roadside picnick or metro and translating it line by line.
any suggestions?
Tried to learn German back in 2013-14, but got bored of it. Didn't help that I was only using Duolingo to study, and it got tiring trying to keep caught up.

A few years later I tried learning Japanese. Kana was the only easy part. Grammar wasn't too hard, though, I used Tae Kim and I could follow along. But kanji and vocabulary were a nightmare. It got to the point where I was spending an hour and a half of my free time every day studying flashcards.
Then I realized, why am I even studying Japanese? I might into Japanese media a little (mostly games), but all the stuff I've seen/read/played has been translated anyhow.

Lately I've been learning Latin off and on. Hell of a lot easier than I thought. Only problem is, there's no use for it outside of academic stuff.
currently learning spanish, as most if not all of the people around me speak it. i plan on learning russian to access its literature in its original form; japanese because i'm a weeb and it would be nice to not need subtitles if i visit japan; hebrew because it's related to arabic (which i already speak); and german because it's related to english.
i remember reading something about how to choose languages to learn depending on need and relation to mother tongue.
i've been halfheartedly studying russian for a few years. motivation dropped off hard after i left uni and didnt have a structured class anymore. i have couple guys online who are up to groupstudy if i can ever arrange it.
finnish would be really cool, plus i could then access ylilauta, but there are damn near no resources out there.
lately i've had an interest in sign language, i think it would be fun. i don't know any deaf or mute people so i would have to practice on video online, but i'm sure there's groups for that.

vivid daydreams Anonymous 05/17/2020 (Sun) 09:46:51 No. 893 [Reply] [Last]
it's a room i visit every so often. there are portals inviting me to different universes. different lives. different realities. sometimes i'll be walking down the street and i'll have silent conversations with myself. every so often, i'll catch myself talking. i'll do hand and face gestures to nobody in particular.

sometimes, i don't need to close my eyes. i've been asked why i stare into space a lot, and why i'm quiet. truth is, i'm watching multiple movies in my head. sometimes, i'll be listening to music and imagine a music video with me as the singer. i'll be reading a book and find myself losing track of where i was because i was daydreaming about being a teacher.

multiple crushes play multiple parts in my multiple universes. like two parallel lines that never meet. sometimes, i'll build an entire scenario from scratch and get so invested in it i feel drained the entire day. sometimes, i'll read or hear or see something that starts the worldbuilding process.

i don't know if this is a blessing or a curse. i've been doing this my whole life. i've had this my whole life. daydreams so vivid they take me away from reality.

Finally broke down at 4am and told my father about the depression, the suicidal thoughts, and all the other shit that I've kept to myself for the past year. He had no idea about any of it, most people didn't. Even those who knew about parts of it never knew the fill picture.
It felt really good, lads.
The /late/ hours are the best for sorrow and depression, but also for confession and empathy.

>that image
For what purpose?
i have no idea why i should be borned and continue living.

i don't get why many people says that those who do not want to procreate are selfish.
then i don't get how is it not selfish that many parents bring a new human life onto this messed up world, only to let them figure out themselves how to continue living cos "it's your generation's problem now."

anyway, i missed the 1990s.
Everything has been getting better for the past year or so, but the cracks are showing. I'll go days feeling fine and then a single bad day hits where everything collapses and I go into fits of rage or sorrow.
I'm starting to doubt that the progress I've made is progress at all.
Meditation, relaxation, distraction, or even heavy through directly facing the issue at hand, none of it eliminates the issue. Is this just something I have to live with? The trauma lingering over me for the next 60 years?

I haven't touched the bottle or the pills for years now. Last week I broke and went back to the bottle.
Earlier today, I broke and scrounged some pills I remembered that I had hidden.

I've spent all I have on my habit before, and this is how it started.
>>753
God hates me. The universe disavows me. Reality itself despises me. I revel in the knowledge that I am hated. For me, that is the only proof that I am still alive, that I exist. That I am not a figment of my imagination.

God, man, reality, whatever - they will stop at nothing to stop me from being happy. It makes the little joys I find in the garbage heap of existence all the more better. All the more perfect. All the more precious.

I absolutely despise staying up late, because often times I'll end up sleeping in the day. I'm glad I finally ended up falling asleep at 9:00 at night rather than at 4:00 in the morning. It used to be really comfy but now it's just obnoxious.
>>823
>i don't get why many people says that those who do not want to procreate are selfish.
Probably because of a lot of people that don't have children as a means of virtue signalling (I don't have any children! I can do what I want! I'm not polluting the planet! &c!). I have no problem with not having children, but most people want to do it so they can continue to act like high schoolers until they realize they're actually old.
>then i don't get how is it not selfish that many parents bring a new human life onto this messed up world, only to let them figure out themselves how to continue living cos "it's your generation's problem now."
Because most parents see their children as sort of an extension of themselves, or a limb, or a pet, rather than an actual human being coming into existence. Worst case is those celebrities that adopt a child but basically treat him or her like an accessory.

/latewalk/ Anonymous 04/30/2020 (Thu) 07:25:43 No. 824 [Reply] [Last]
Just had my first of the year, and it was amazing.

I haven't been out in a month owing to a broken limb, and haven't been out late in half a year owing to our interminable northern winters, so everything about the experience was the perfect combination of fresh and familiar. The feeling of gravel shifting under my weight. Shadows dancing in my peripheral vision, in a field lit by the half moon. The smell of sulfur hits my nose and I notice a woman sitting in the bed of a parked pickup truck across the street idly smoking a cigarette, like a background animation. The buzzing of utility boxes and the uneven clomping of my boots. Things are very quiet without all the cars. I suspect the decrease in pollution is why the stars were so clear, as well.

It's nice not to be a cripple, or a brain in a jar anymore.

How have yours been, anon? Are you taking advantage of the empty streets and our new social distancing regime? And what's your nightwalk playlist?
I've not been on a nightwalk. It would probably do me some good. Last night I went on the trampoline and paced around in circles on it. It bothered the neighbours' faggy little dogs.
Waiting on the whole corona thing to end just to /latewalk/

its red tide right now and i feel like i'm missing out
I've gone a dozen times or so now, at different hours. Each has been more or less fun, though nothing can beat the absolute silence of 0200. One walk was just before dawn as I wanted to go shopping just as things were opening. I ran 5 miles through the woods, getting spooked by all the deer I was spooking. Having done so little cardio over the lockdown months I felt a little sick, like my heart wasn't right somehow. Probably because I was also lifting heavier in the interim, leaving me with bigger wheels, but a smaller engine to power them. I made it to town anyhow, which I'm told is supposed to be much more populated at this hour.

Last night I was walking home and saw a deer crossing the road, in the middle of the 'burbs. It crossed at the crosswalk like it knew. I followed it down the sidewalk half a block, because it was going my way anyway, and I couldn't help getting the impression that it makes this journey every night, like anybody. It stopped a couple times to listen, but not to me. It knew I was there, just a few feet away, and didn't mind. It turned into a little park where we parted ways.

Still feeling intense gratitude that I got to experience all this.
>>833
It's great. Babby's first nightwalk is just a trip to the convenience store. Depending on the wildlife in your area, your disposition might need to be less "nature hike" and more "sneaking mission."

Why do you stay up late?

personally I find myself to be a lot more relaxed and creative at night. There’s no stress, you do what you want to do and no one else is awake to tell you otherwise, compared to during the day when there’s always things that have to be done, whether it be work or chores, a time when people expect things from you.

It’s a feeling that I can't really replicate during the day. drawing or reading in the dark while it rains outside with a cup of tea in hand is very comfy, a time when you can truly unwind.

Well cause we're stuck inside all the time, I've done it so that our lives aren't in sync and we get some alone time from one another.
During school I liked the silence and internet slowing down. Nothing to distract me. Throw on some music and crush assignments.

Now days it's because video games. I'll be lower rank overall because its harder at night but I get to play with higher skill players and people who try. No throwers, no squeakers, no leavers
I don't know, honestly. I'll take sleeping pills every night and procrastinate past sleeping until I decide to go to sleep after a night of browsing the Internet.
It's fucking over my body and I hate myself because of it
(517.38 KB 500x500 gimpy.png)
Many reasons:
- After the day's work is done I need a lot of time to mentally decompress from it. Five hours or more.
- When I make a good-faith effort to get to bed early I just sleep like shit. If I'm going to be tired anyway, might as well get the benefits of staying up late.
- My mood seems to be worst in the evenings, but after a few hours of suffering through that I get a second wind. I really do not want to waste the times during which I get to feel good.
- Things I have to do pile up until I get them all done in one night.
- I get absorbed in a particular piece of fiction and want to continue reading/watching it for hours.

>Why do you stay up late?
It was kind of just a natural habit when I was a kid. I didn't want to sleep at night and I'd get caught if I tried to play vidya so I stayed up entire nights watching Adult Swim with the volume at 1%. Years of procrasting and then finishing work the night before ended up reinforcing the habit. Now I just can't sleep before 3 AM.

Yes, I'm in a cult, The Cult of Moth. Our cult is a nocturnal cyber cult, that originated as a shitpost, but then became an authentic spiritual philosophy as anons contributed their esoteric beliefs in growing dedication.

The Cult of Moth is a dualistic philosophy and MOTH simultaneously stands for (Making Our way Towards Heaven) and (Making Our way Towards Hell). This is to denote we have no final destination and are instead on a never ending flight through exploration and transformation. If you would like to learn more, our Shrine is headquartered here: https://xchan.wtf/rel/res/64.html

The Cult of Moth is for those seeking metamorphosis. We transcend traditional limits and value personal growth and autonomy.
don't think i've met one,
at the very most, some were from some off-shoot sects of the mainstream religions found at where i'm from (Christianity, Buddhism, Daoism, and Hinduism).
Cults beyond a certain size are called religions. Tsuki was a cult that was advertised on Lainchan.

I almost joined Tsuki, then my intuition got ahold of me halfway during registration and was like "dude you know you're about to join a cult, right?"

>What makes people join cults in your opinion?
In one of my classes in highschool (psych or sociology, likely the latter) we did a chapter on cults, and I remember learning that some of the big reasons people join a cult are loneliness and the need to belong. That's something I was feeling big time when I considered Tsuki. Only one friend that I felt I was growing distant from (we're closer now), missed out on most/all major social experiences growing up, had no place online to consider "home", stuff like that. Seeing the technological and mystical themes of Tsuki lured me in and made it seem like a place where I'd fit in... then I remembered hearing about Lainchan a few years prior and decided to check it out instead. Now it's my home.

Post pre-2007 internet pages here. I'll start -

Some site where you can order VHS repro copies of 90's anime. Surprised me, since the last time he updated was December 2015. He's probably still selling them.

Some random guys homepage. I tried to find him and see what he was up to today, but no dice. Kind of a mystery.

An old Sailor Moon fansite that tried to get a proper english release. Kinda funny how that shit don't even matter anymore, what with fansubbing and all.

I remember this site being my favorite from when I was 8 to about 12.
It's about constructing planets, and some of the planets featured are well thought-out. A lot of planets (Disco especially) were abandoned right away.
I really wish that this kept going, because I loved this site and still do.

Also, my favorite part is how some of these drawings and graphics are just terrible. Look at Spirit's star system, for example. it's both very poorly drawn and compressed to hell and back.

Wow.
This actually seems useful for scifi purposes.

Thank you for this. I've been trying to find the name of that interface, Microsoft Bob. I messed around with it as a kid on the computers my mum would bring home from work that they were throwing out. Really comfy stuff, though I can see why it failed as a product, not very practical.

I don't see an art thread, so here's an art thread to draw /late/ things, miscellaneous things, maybe something else.
I draw countryballs mostly so I made a /late/ball. He's sleepy.
