hello/questions from a noob

Submitted by nijntje in AskRaddle

Hi,

I've just joined, and read through the faq/wiki/etc, so i figured it's time to ask some questions.

first of all: what brought you here? And what keeps you here? What makes this place different than all the other internet homes, for you?

second of all: what should I be aware of, or I guess, what would you have liked to know sooner when you joined?

third of all: please recommend me an album to listen to… which isn't a question, so… recommend me an album plz?

  1. I'm privacy-conscious, and this is a no-platform-for-fascists place

  2. add /comments to raddle.me or onion address bar for a list of all the latest comments
    also there's an onion address
    also you can get a long way in this site so long as you're genuine

  3. kind of an album; Burning Cop Car #10

  1. felt like spending more of my internet time engaging with the kind of stuff that interests me academically and this seemed like the best place to do it
  2. /u/tequila_wolf is the coolest person on the site so you should give up trying to take that place now
  3. i recommend a sufi and killer by gonjasufi

I'm super excited to hear that, I've been trying to do exactly that, since the beginning of this year. Cut out more cruft that I look at online in favour of trying to spend that time learning something useful.

  1. I wanted to have someone to discuss things that mattered to me with, since very few people close to me gives half a crap about anything besides their economy and the latest season of Paradise Hotel.

  2. Just be honest and genuine, instead of trying to please people and earn upvotes, as is the usual culture on Reddit.

  3. Evil Empire by Rage against the Machine. My favorite track on the album is Year of tha Boomerang or Bulls on Parade (suppose you've already heard this one before).

Thank you! I've listened some to RatM but not a ton, so I'll have to give that album a go.

(also I've never heard of Paradise Hotel so it's kind of ironic being made aware of its existence in this context lol)

  1. I was swapping to FOSS, and found this whilst searching through resources.

  2. The forum takes a strong stance against americentrism or eurocentrism.

Glad to hear about the convo's/viewpoints! I've not looked around a ton but so far i have already noticed that, which is cool

  1. I heard reddit was going down the censorship route (officially this time) so I went looking for alternatives, and here I am. It's only been a few minutes so I'm not really super familiar with this place.
  2. Karma (or the vote system) is pointless, don't chase karma and just be who you are.
  3. Deep Forest - World Mix.

Thanks, I'll give that a listen!

I do like that there's not really an emphasis on points, etc, as far as I've seen.

  1. It's just another place I can spam with my stuff

  2. People are sometimes mean and type questionable things, don't take it to heart.

  3. American Spring is a decent starting point :P

looks like a neat resource, thanks! as for the 'not taking it to heart', i've thankfully learned to do that quite a while ago. if anyone fixes that issue they'd be crowned emperor of the world instantly i think

Got sick of sharing spaces with fascists, wanted something more comfortable.

Pat the Bunny's Probably Nothing, Possibly Everything really speaks to me on a personal level.

Good one, probably gotta go with Your Heart is a Muscle the Size of Your Fist though. Love for others is probably the only thing keeping me from throwing my life away for something stupid.

I came here after most of the cool people on /r/anarchism were banned or left for various reasons. Reddit was getting on my nerves more and more. Better vibes here most of the time.

Sleep is the Cousin of Death by Awon, Dephlow, and Phoniks

Frenching the Bully by the Gits.

Big Beat from Badsville by the Cramps

I didn't ever really look at /r/anarchism, and actually haven't much used reddit in the past few years, but I'm glad there's good vibes here.

Thanks for the suggestions!

Mods being randomly banned from r/@ and after the latest move I deleted my account. Also what do you listen to?

I just came here for reading/learning different points of views from individuals form across the world that does not reach to the clearnet without cencership or without raising considerable security issues. And I am glad that I did. I recommend velvet underground and nico and tago mago.

  1. Came for a reddit alternative after consecutive changes leading to a possible social media direction. So far, this place seems to scratch my itch.
  2. Not sure, I'm still getting to know the place just like you.
  3. Been listening to Marble Mouth, by Pillar Point. Linked to my favorite song of the album.

Thanks, I'll listen to the whole album! Are there any worries for you that this is too much in the other direction? i.e. too politically motivated etc, so won't be able to fill in the 'i want to waste some time' aspect of reddit?

how about something with woodwinds like flutes, obo and clarinet, maybe a little didjeridoo edit: ooh and a rain-shaker maraka !

Reddit has always been a raging dumpster fire but there were few alternatives. I like anything that builds the radical community.

I strongly recommend this album by classic anarchist band Chumbawamba, it's super chill: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GRO2EwaZNhs

Esp. When Alexander Met Emma, about Alexander Berkman meeting Emma Goldman
