The name of the sampled instrument in these tracks is called a Rhodes piano, right?

It sounds amazing when it's paired with hip hop drums. I'd happily listen to albums of just this alone.

Yep, it's a Rhodes piano. Probably best known in recent years from the intro to Portishead's Roads. You might enjoy Miles Davis' landmark album In A Silent Way, which heavily features the Rhodes.

I used to leave GTA2 on the menu screen just to listen to that track. It is indeed funky as all shit.

You can get a reasonable approximation of it in most DAWs by putting some sort of generic hammond-style organ plugin through a fuzz and rolling off all the top end.

I have listened to and loved this album before, though I didn't make the specific instrument connection. It's a beautiful bit of jazz, but the itch I'm trying to scratch with this thread is more like hip hop drums over simple samples.

I've honestly thought about starting a board game thread here for the better part of a decade, so good on you. I've got maybe 80 of the bastards now.

Ticket to ride is such a beautiful in its simplicity game. But I've never had a game that didn't involve some level of verbal abuse. There is a perfect sweet spot for tension where some cunt builds the route someone else needs and has been planning for 10 turns (Usually I am that cunt).

>>22523

Oh man I like that game and I've had my copy for 10 years, but the flaw that Italy is obviously handicapped is obvious to everyone. By no means the best game ever if best even means anything in the capacity of having fun. It certainly isn't for everyone.

>>23125

The problem with co-op games I find is that they can easily lead to one player telling everyone else how to play. Which is a problem that mostly can't be solved. Hanabi is a cute game in terms of not outstanding its welcome, and not feeling tense. The 'Forbidden X' games are a good game for drumming up tension on quite a light rule set.

Played Robinson Crusoe the other week which is quite heave on the rules for a co op but is a rewarding puzzle to solve. And for the orientalism loving gamer>>22519 the co op game of choice is 'ghost stories'.

> The problem with co-op games I find is that they can easily lead to one player telling everyone else how to play.

Indeed, Pandemic is particularly vulnerable to this if a more experienced player doesn't know how to keep their gob shut guide the game experience without being overbearing for the other players. Other than that it's pretty great.

>>23125
Eldritch Horror is also genuinely good fun if you use the companion app to take some of the faff away. The major sticking point is that each game takes 2h+ easily and while I find time flies while playing the duration alone may put some people off. If you're playing in a casual pub meet, you may also struggle to find a table large enough for both the game and everyone's pints to safely co-exist.

We gave the Fallout co-op game a shot, but it got really repetitive really quickly. Even if you like the Fallout series, I'd avoid it or buy it second hand.

Star Realms Frontiers is a co-op capable pack for Star Realms, a deck builder with oodles of intercompatible expansions. The base game is normally played 1v1 but the "Frontiers" version has rules and a set of missions for 1-4 player to take on cooperatively. If you've played a deck builder before you'll feel instantly at home, if not it won't take more than a few turns to get the basic hang of it. It's fast to setup and pack away and each game shouldn't take more than 20-30 minutes. While the expansions are technically intercompatible, if you play the missions using Command expansion decks you'll have basically no challenge.

Legendary Encounters: Aliens sorry, "Legendary Encounters - An ALIEN Deck Building Game" is a purely co-operative deck builder which commits strongly to its theme. You play through scenarios resembling the three original movies on a provided playing mat. It plays well and has a support mechanic where other players can help you with resources on your turn that helps to keep everyone engaged in their down time. Unless you're some kind of card savant or have a lot of practice, however, it's quite fiddly to setup particularly the first time you open the box. On the plus side, you can generally mix-and-match Legendary Encounters games and, true to theme, there are a special rules to combine this one with "Legendary Encounters: Predator". I'd generally only recommend this one if you think you'll play more than one game in a row, otherwise you'll spend near as much time setting up and packing up as you do playing.

Still card based but basically the opposite of a deck builder is the Dresden Files co-op card game. Each player picks a character (one player has to be Harry Dresden), draws their initial hand and then basically never draws again making cards valuable resources. The players are faced with two rows of cards rach consisting of enemies to fight, cases to solve, obstacles to overcome or advantages to take and have cards for dealing with each of those four things. Using a shared resource pool, players take turns either spend resource to use one of their cards or replenish the pool by discarding. The end goal is that they must have more solved cases than enemies remain alive once they run out of cards. There are some dice rolls during the game and a "show down" at the very end where dice rolls can help bring the players over the line if they didn't quite get there. The game doesn't take much space, is fairly quick to setup and consistently takes very close to 30 minutes. You don't need to know anything about the "Dresden Files" series to enjoy the game, but some familiarity adds more colour to the characters and their abilities.

If you like co-operative games and can get a regular group together, it's also worth looking into "legacy" games. They turn into simple role playing games very quickly, but do require a group of 3-4 people that can commit to regular play at least once a week (otherwise we delve into D&D style want to but never get to).

Pandemic: Legacy requires 12-24 play sessions of ~1h each, and a couple of games of Pandemic to understand the premise to get started. It's shlock writing, but really fun to play through and leaves you with a playable board at the end if you ignore or peel of stickers. It's Pandemic with a story, basically.

Aeon's End: Legacy is a deck builder, but you get to evolve the cards you get to chose from as you progress through the story as well as building the characters you play. It has cosmetic issues if you made certain choices, so it's not perfect, but it's still very much worth playing through. It's also got decent rules for replaying scenarios as well as selling a "reset" pack that lets you start from scratch; but that pack is half the cost of the base game so yeesh.

Tales of Arabian Nights is technically competitive, but those mechanics seem perfunctory and it's more like co-op story telling with training wheels. It's like a giant choose-your-own-adventure book, and if you ditch the win conditions and instead set yourself a time limit you each get to build a character that goes on an adventure (and experiences various strokes of luck or misadventures). If your group is at all RP capable, it's really good fun.

Still nothing wrong with backing up your claim by showing the knife. You're already in for armed robbery anyway, regardless of whether or not you actually have a knife. I think there have been court cases where somebody got done for armed robbery just for poking his index finger through his coat pocket and saying he had a gun.

So why not present your weapon to the poor lad you're robbing so he'll at least know you're not a pretentious cunt.

And besides, why say you've got a knife. If you're bullshitting anyway, why not say you've got a gun in your coat pocket. Would convince me more than the prospect of getting grazed by an imaginary knife across the counter.

Well, I'm officially old. I don't think I recognised more than handful of albums off that list and I've not listened to a single one (except perhaps Lady Gaga via simple osmosis).

The only album I really remember liking from the last 10 years was Chase and Status' "No more idols", and I guess the second La Roux album was alright, sort of.

Most of the music I've discovered since '09 has been older 2000-2009 era stuff that was either a genre I wasn't interested in at the time or so obscure that no one my peer circle had discovered it.

If it's true that people forever listen to the music of their youth, then my youth ended in 2009. RIP.

There's only a few on that list I know I've definitely listened to: PJ Harvey, Daft Punk, Todd Terje, Courtney Barnett, Grimes only Visions as everything after that hasn't been to my taste and Fiona Apple.

I haven't discovered much new music in the past fifteen years or so. That said, this came straight to mind for best albums of the past decade; there will be more but for the rest I'd have to check when they were actually released.

I remember the numbers being mentioned a while back, could've been years, but it was around 100 then so that sounds about right. Tried to post this in London the other night btw but someone's been playing silly buggers and the IP was banned.

/zoo/24267 UK.. I've come back, and I need your help
I am a 24 year old American who has never had a job because I am a socially anxious diagnosed autist with no frens and my father keeps breathing down my neck to get one.. I've tried my hardest to find and get one but no one cares. And I would do other things like go to university but I'm a disorderly idiot at that and I can't do the military either because I don't want to fight for Israel plus I'd fail at that because I'm physically weak. I would create a business but I lack fuck all for that as well.

What do I do, UK? I'm so fucked...

Well good for you mate. In 99% of cases it's going to be a waste of time though.

On a good day walking around a big town you might be able to hand out 30 CVs. On the internet you can put in probably a hundred applications in the same amount of time.

If you need a job and you need one sooner rather than later, it's simply not an efficient investment of effort to waste an afternoon giving your CVs to people who are going to put them straight in the bin. It's actively harmful to your prospects, like a hunter wasting more energy chasing his prey than he will gain from catching it.

Last time I was on the dole they told us to do it, and I almost got kicked out for arguing the toss with the Karen looking bint running the course.

Yeah, but handing in CVs you could get an interview for a job that hasn't been advertised or at least one that hasn't been advertised some place where candidates are machine gunning in applications. The competition would be much less stiff.

If you're sending 100 applications a day there's a very good chance you're doing it wrong anyway.

Nah, that's very much doing it right; at least for entry level jobs, which sounds like the sort of advice this thread pertains to. Usually a job that hasn't been advertised is something much more specialised, so while there might be less competition it's less likely you'd actually be qualified for it. That's not just a needle in a haystack, it's a diamond ring of exactly your size in a cornfield.

There's a myth about copy/pasting applications meaning you'll get binned every time. It's got a grain of truth to it, but not quite. Nowadays, applications are scanned by software multiple times before they even make it to a person; if you have the right keywords and structure in there that the software looks for you've won half the battle.

Wasting your time writing up a fresh application from scratch for every shite call centre job is a waste of time thanks to the same principle as the hunter analogy.

Not him, but if I got handed a paper CV that someone had brought in in person I'd pay it much more attention that the dozens of electronic applications I had to process that day. You're probably right about the numbers game but I think you hit a point where you've applied to all the potential jobs you can online - pounding the pavements is a perfectly good decision at some stage. Not least to get you out the house for a bit.

I think if you have a confident personality, and can pitch yourself well in a couple of sentences, turning up in person like that can really work. Most people (particularly those who are jobless) don't have that kind of personality though.

Assetto Corsa is only £13 on Steam, with all the DLC, right now. It's easily the most entertaining driving sim I've played and there are seemingly endless amounts of DLC for it, I can't recommend it enough.

Interesting - I like a driving SIM and have seen the reviews of I and considered it in the past. I have a Logitech wheel/pedals and one of those driving seats to go with.

Why is it so good? I like Project Cars very much indeed, but with the wheel it's almost too easy once you've practiced enough.

A couple of years ago I bought a wheel and pedals and thought I'd get into multiplayer racing in Assetto Corsa. Played it for maybe 15 hours total but eventually got bored of it and realised I'm not really into racing sims. I played the shit out of the old GT and Forza games but I was never one to autistically shave milliseconds off my laptimes or engage in the tedium of going around the same track over and over to learn the best racing lines, which is a necessity if you want to be competitive online.

I ended up selling the wheel and pedals, bought an old MS Sidewinder joystick because force feedback in joysticks went the way of the dodo for some reason, and had a blast blasting people in Il-2. Going pew-pew in the air or in space is a more fun thing to simulate than driving around a race track.

The variety of tracks and the range of cars to drive is what I like most about it. It's definitely more of a sim than Project Cars, although the graphics aren't quite up to the same level. As I, eventually, mentioned it has a modding scene that's second to none. If you have a "local" racetrack that you've always thought "damn, I wish that was in a game for once", someone's probably at least working on adding it. Not that the base game's barren or anything, especially with all the DLC, there's just loads going on beyond that.

Oh. Okay.

Il-2's ace too though. I've never managed to get a Sturmovik into space, but maybe I never tried hard enough.

How do I go about writing a book?

I've got a loose idea in my head an undercover officer infiltrates a group, possibly someone like the Democratic Football Lads Alliance, only for it descend into a farce as it turns out 90% of the members are undercover officers who don't want to blow their cover. So far the end result in my head is that the organisation ends up gaining lots of members because the officers make the group seem much larger than it would be otherwise and they're so adept at bureaucracy that they run the group far more efficiently than it would otherwise be. This is the point where you tell me this idea has already been done and far better than I could ever hope to write it. but I'm not entirely sure where to go from here.

Thanks, lads.

G K Chestertons The Man Who Was Thursaday might be worth a read. It sounds essentially the same but the ending - more a mystery around who's undercover and who's not, and a bit of talk about anarchy. It's pretty short. Might be helpful.

I've always wondered about writing; whether you should have something to say that your characters revolve around or if it should be nothing more than a story. I can see both aproaches being boring for a reader.

I've never seen anybody reference Chesterton outside of the early Deus Ex fandom but I welcome it. It's like he stepped in from an alternate dimension where Arthur Conan Doyle wasn't insufferably dull.

>How well does screen writing theory translate through books? The anatomy of a story kind of thing?
Screen writing theory is (with the exception of modernist filmmakers - you know the ones) largely based on classic literary structure. Joseph Campbell constructed the model of the "monomyth" or "hero's journey" that has been so ubiquitous throughout the ages that it's difficult to shake it when watching film or engaging with formulaic prose once you're aware. That's not to say it's tacky or overdone, just overly reliant on plot linearity rather than individual character exposition to flesh out the book/film universe.

Not who you're responding to but DX was how I got exposed to Chesterton's work.
There's something else I'd read written by him, something that was quite profound and even more so given that it was written a hundred years ago. Can't fucking recall what.

Any of you lads had any experience with making your own hot sauce or chili jams? If not, do you have any favourites?

I'm about to harvest my chili plant and retire it for the winter. I'll probably cook up a few batches and bottle them for the next couple of months.

My proposed mix is as follows:

- 3 x Scotch bonnet
- 3 x jalapeno (grilled)
- 1 x bell pepper (roasted)
- Handful of roasted plum tomatoes
- Half an onion (grilled)
- Some garlic
- Some ginger
- A few carrots (roasted)
- Salt

Bit late, but this guy has a lot of good guides to making chilli sauces. You might want to look at making a fermented sauce too. They're "easy" in one sense of the word, although you might face certain problems with that route.

12x random chilli pepper I was sent. Look like Trinidad Scorpions but it's hard to be sure.
Half a mug of dried sichuan peppers
2x Garlic cloves
Roasted on a low temperature for a bit then took the sichuan peppers out when they started to smoke. Turned up the temperature and continued roasting until the chillies started to blacken a little.
.5 cup light soy sauce
1x cup of rice vinegar
1.5 shots of lime juice
1x teaspoon of cayenne pepper
.5 test tube of dried chipotle
1x teaspoon salt
1x tablespoon MSG
Peeled the now soft garlic & removed the chilli pepper stalks, blended all the ingredients together as homogeneously as possible. Brought to a boil then simmered for the remainder of 30 minutes while fairly constantly stirring.

It's cooling now. I can see subsidence is a problem as it keeps separating so will need shaking/stirring before serving but it's really delicious.

>Burger King seem to have gone right downhill.
For me the end of Burger King as something I'd look forwards to as a treat was when they changed their fries. They used to be delicious and crunchy, now they're just the bog standard soggy, tasteless chips you'd get in any canteen in the land. I only eat one these days if I'm on the road and hungry enough not to wait to find something better. Once or twice a year, if that.
