This is why I prefer cinema, it forces me to watch the movie and I don't clutter my shelves with DVDs of films I only watch once and then it just sits there staring at me untouched taking up space.
This is why I prefer digital media collections (that you actually own aka downloading files, not some cucked "library" you can only access over the internet like netflix).

Owning physical videogames are okay (and at that only a few) since they could be regularly used but movies aren't the same.

And the CDs I own I bought in Japan were just because of how much of a fan I am of the idols but that too is pointless since they're just collectors items and I listen to the mp3s.

It's still really cool to own Seiko Matsuda albums that actually were made in the 1980s that I bought used and still play fine (I listen to them in my car CD player).

The new issue CDs I bought were kind of lame though and those can be easily imported if one were to really want to acquire them.

I'm just against merchandise. I don't like that kind of extravagance.

I watch films on VLC player with the run time displayed and it was like counting down the hours and minutes being in school. Sometimes I had to stop the movie, jot down the timestamp on a post-it note and divide a movie up into 4 parts. My "intermissions" would last 3 hours of browsing forums, or days I just don't have the attention span for a pointless 2 hour film. I did this with the live action Alita-Battle Angel, of which the Japan anime is still far better and only took 50 minutes to tell its story.
I am like that as well but with anime. That's mainly because of depression though. It makes it hard to focus on something that's outside of being lost in my own world mindlessly scrolling the internet. For me it actually takes "effort" to focus on anything outside of that even an anime (unless it's one I find to be especially engrossing).

I don't think you'd like it @Mafia due to Christian Slayter shagging the blonde in a phone box sex scene, that mogs worse than that one sex scene in Jackie Brown.
I was just about to mention that's why I could never watch Jackie Brown again. It was so tasteless and just messed up what otherwise would've been a good movie.

Oliver Stone
I liked Scarface but that's another movie I can't really watch again. It also takes itself too seriously compared to Tarantino movies so it's not really enjoyable for me.

With anime I like to be really reflective and watch something deep but I see western movies as dumb so I want them to be entertaining above all.

Natural Born Killers
The cover art grossed me out, I don't want to see anything about psycho freaks.

Not to keep homing in on this point, but this is why I haven't bought Weed in the UK since 2014. The open sleaziness and degeneracy of drug dealers is so reflective of that scene.
I remember turning up to a dealer's house and he was half naked soaked in sweat with a naked girl laying on the couch. I could "smell" them as as I swapped £10 for a bag and it was just gross.

You're not alone in downthumbing it though. I personally think the vulgarity is more inferred and in your mind, than explicit during the "Louis (De Niro) and Melanie (Fonda)" scene. The cynical undertones of the scene and stoicism were done on purpose. As it was later revealed Melanie was used as a bribe to sweaten a drug deal, swindle on Ordell's (Samuel Jackson) orders done "for a friend". Drug Dealers do this with their own girlfriends literally using them as "comfort women" or "bribes" for associates, with women willingly volunteering their bodies for their boyfriend's machiavellian gains.
I think YouTubers are grossed out by De Niro amazing acting playing an old man sleaze (rather than classy role) simulating sex with a female young enough to be his daughter, or missing the point of my prior points.

I'd lie if I hadn't endured such "bribes" myself during my drug taking days but that's a different thread.

Like yourself I'd swap those dark days by shunning degenerate people, close the door on them and spend more time in solitude with anime OAV art and PC table based lifestyle and high back chaired set-ups.
I will only interact with the more genteel aspects of society if they are presentable with decency and courtesy, but the psychological damage is already done

Sounds either gay or fakecel related ngl. Not going to ask either but yeah just saying, you don't have to elaborate.

I really don't like drugs and imo I think it's partially an incel thing. I don't have the inhib required to purchase drugs even if I had the inclination (which I don't).

high back chaired set-ups
Those are so lame and childish but with these zoom meetings I wouldn't mind one since sitting in a mid-back office chair for a 3 hour class with my camera on is torture.

I'd get a very plain one and not something ridiculous with red accents (those gamer chairs).

Yeah that's what I try to do as well now. By PC table I hope you don't mean the cringe "battle station" nonsense like the threads I see on 4chan /g/. I like to keep my work table open and clear not filled with junk.

Multiple monitor set-ups are also really lame to me.

What I've done in my life before was more so stupidity on the internet and in my personal life (like being lazy) then having anything to do with some really seedy people irl (which I never have and never will).

I just don't like graphic scenes.

Gay? No I meant I was given a girl to shag to keep me sweet as a drug user mentally incapable of having a relationship or recognising when a girl might be interested for real.

There are two types of drug user. Losers who just buy weed but may bolt when offered harder shit, so they just play PC games while stoned or jerk off to porn with a fleshlight.

Or those "geezers" who did class A drugs like ecstasy who everyone thinks is cool and low inhibition, whom might go onto either cocaine or heroin use. This is when the boys start offering "bribes" or comfort women for their addicts wares.
These women aren't interested in the addicts, but proof women will do things to dupe men on behalf of other machiavellian men.

Those gamer chairs are not comfortable unless you are a framecel.

Yes I'd want a faux leather "bosses chair" which are comfy for slouching and sleeping, but not good for upright posture or studying. I'd have both tbh. I recall typing part of a college dissertation in a bucket chair, but then smuggling a PC chair in for this reason.

Yeah that's what I try to do as well now. By PC table I hope you don't mean the cringe "battle station" nonsense like the threads I see on 4chan /g/.).
My desk would be clean other than a piece of paper, pen and drinks coaster, as it is now.

Yeah I had one of those at my desk before. A cheap one though. It was really uncomfortable. Even the gamer chairs look like they'd feel better than that.

They're tacky too (even more so than gamer chairs).

If the gamer chair feels like a seat in a car I don't think it would be too bad. Some of them look like that at least. I never had an issue sitting in a car lol but sitting at a desk sucks.

drinks coaster
I need to get one, I just fold up some tissues. I wanted to get a cool one like one from Evangelion.
