        Living without an authority structure of any kind is an illusion, often used by those who have no interest in that principle and just use the rhetoric to aid instituting their own version of authority. The debate isn't should we allow it, the debate is how do we apply it.

      I would just say something like has "high technical competence" or "great attention to detail" etc. Or really just "realistic," since it has more general connotations.

        "A drawing or painting is often more interesting when parts are left unfinished; when certain details are merely suggested..." Loomis himself even uses examples of many, varied styles of painting in speaking about the use of composition and color, including highly abstract works of art!

        And just to reiterate, because I think people tend to be very reactive about this, when I speak against "photorealism" or "photorealist" I am not speaking against a more general sense of realism. I do not admonish realism and I don't promote ugliness; I've spent years and thousands of hours trying to learn to paint certain things realistically.

        I appreciate your opinion on the matter, but at no point did I ever suggest that replicating (or creating) a scene in photographic detail was the pinnacle of art in an emotional, philosophical, or aesthetic sense. Cameras can already do that, after all, and with far less effort.

        A lot of people play solo, co-op, or run very small private servers, so as long as you manage to get a clean and working mod uploaded to the mod portal, it will likely get at least a few dozen downloads from the curious.

        Yeah, I wasn't getting too deeply into it though, but rather painting broad, generic strokes.

        In general I'm a great believer in mind as computer, nature/nurture as firmware, and some nurture/experiences/ideas/skills/etc. as software. These go beyond metaphor.

        For example, we don't have access to some of the firmware and most of the "software" that was running during the Renaissance, and few if any are capable of approaching the skill of Renaissance masters, let alone equaling or exceeding it. However, our software contains scripts and routines that they could only dream of.

        I'm probably getting too weird there. Suffice it to say that viral thoughts are very real and function, in all meaningful and essential ways, more-or-less identically to computer and physiological viruses.

      Imagine being on the cusp of middle-age, still playing children's games, and then going on a web forum that you have 100k posts at and calling others autistics and spergs. Imagine also that you spend the bulk of your paycheck (what doesn't go to paying mommy the rent) on warhammer manuals and miniatures.

        Imagine no further my friends come one come all and take a hard look at the poster known as Blaine, the quintessential nerd goon that LARPs as a badass alpha on an RPG forum and calls others "spergs." A sight has never been more shameful.

        The Phantom Pain is the finest action commando simulator of all time.

        Remember: If we hadn't bombed Japan, then you wouldn't be able to play a Snake Plissken analogue capable of bowling over three commies while riding a cardboard box adorned with an anime poster, and then holding them up with a squirt gun.

        Letting a Unity engine game run all out doesn't seem like it'd be good for your video card, but I suppose that's not much of a concern for you even with cryptomining-inflated prices .

      Can you tell me why you rated this post retarded? I said "read again" because it seemed to me that you misread what I wrote and interpreted it as if I said both sides Godwinned, while i explicitly stated that one side (lefties / SJWs) invokes Godwin in the very snippet you quoted in the post above.
      Just curious if I missed something.

        you do essentially say that both sides Godwinned (that is to say fall back on a not so well justified characterization of the (momentary) enemy as something they are (clearly) not.
        OTOH...it's rly not up to a person to decide whether they are themselves an sjw ;) A thousand ppl might use a hashtag it's the way they're used that tells the story.

        No I don't. I say one calls those they disagree with Nazis, while the other call those they disagree with sjws. Godwin specifically refers to mentioning Hitler or the Nazi.
