What's tundra? Is it just a meme name for hypersphere?

And no, you fucking newfag. Tundra is the name of the book before Hypersphere.

How does it feel? How does it feel that you will never even come close to the OG Tundra that oldfags wrote?

Goddamn this is embarrassing.

Anon, how does the tripcode work?

On the FAQ, it says to place a # followed by a word or short phrase after what you've entered into the [Name] field (ex. "User#password")

Does that mean that if I was to put the desired name, "Test", do I put it before, or after the #? And what do I put before or after the #?
>>
>>7552991
You're really cool
>>
>>7553020
in the name field write a name then after the name a # then the password

Does anyone know what happened to the chick that started doing readings in one of the most recent threads? Wondering if she still plans on contributing.

Either way enjoy. Been doing this for about 3 or 4 weeks for those that haven't seen one of my vids before.

>>
>>7556563
I totally would if I could.
Most of the time my siblings (we all live together) aren't home so I can record. But I went to an old neighbor of mines house and smoked weed with him. He is a very paranoid tinfoil kind of hat guy. In his 60's, drinks white russians, told me that some of the brighter stars are fake one part of a giant mesh/grid created by the military to protect earth. He's fucking radical. He's also gay and the dude he's with well. They're fucking hilarious to watch.
Thinking about writing a piece about fictionalized versions of them.

Anyway, I'll try and record something tomorrow. My one class on fridays (psych 101) is cancelled because the professor is going out of town for something.
So I'll have plenty of time to record and get fucked up then.
Maybe I'll do some high readings.

For request from >>7550535:

I've got a fair amount of recorded material, but editing it is such a major pain in the arse. Unless anyone wants to help out with the editing aspect (which is easy, but super boring), then I think I'll call it here.

Also, hey - did your audio quality get better Egotist? Good job.

There've been some amazing parts done by a guy on reddit by the way, if you haven't seen them:

>>
>>7560357
Nice. Was wondering if you were around.
Also no, still using my webcam like I was before. For whatever reason some of my recordings will be miles better in terms of quality then some of the others.
Like my most recent one there
>>7559929
Is slightly worse quality then the one you just responded to.
No idea why.

Haven't seen those yet as I don't visit reddit but they're not bad. Although no offense to the guy but I don't think I could listen to his too often.

If you do happen to edit/post anything else let me know if you can. I enjoy listening to high quality stuff.
>>
>>7560444
You should get a decent condenser mic - it would improve the listenability of your videos immensely. You can get a good quality USB condenser mic for fairly cheap nowadays, 40 quid on sales IIRC. I got mine for 80.

Have you tried to run your recording through audacity's noise removal tool before you upload, by the way? Awful background noise is awful.
>>
>>7560479
I have not tried running it through audacity. I'll start doing that though, hopefully that will slightly improve the quality.

I may see about getting a mic eventually but for now it will have to wait. Don't have any money whatsoever to spare currently. Hopefully audacity NRT will be a good enough improvement for now.
>>
Anyone got a link to the actual best version of Tundra?
I already bought Hypersphere for 22 bucks AUD, and I think I'd like to spend more of my money on meme-tier shit.

For anyone considering buying, use LULURC on checkout. Saves a bundle FYI

(That back cover is different from the one in this thread though, I know because I photoshopped the hypersphere cover onto the image in this thread, it's pretty subtle though)
>>
>>7562240
the reason you disagree is clearly because you think hypersphere got too popular so therefore you are a contrarian

I believe you're the one who made popularity the point of measure

yes i said you were being contrarian and you proved me right when your go to argument was >>7562232
>>
>>7562251
Your argument is that the book was good because it was popular
My argument is that popularity doesn't make the book great

Popularity isn't a factor

>the bible is the greatest book ever written because it's the most popular
>>
>>7562266
>Your argument is that the book was good because it was popular
no its not, my argument is that you don't like it because it's too popular
>>
>>7562269
No, if you were to read back you would see my argument was that you had a vested interest

This is too many words for arguing about meme books
>>
>>7562277
yes but my argument was that you are a contrarian
>>
>>7562266
>the bible is the greatest book ever written because it's the most popular

Isn't that a pretty legit thing to say though?
>>
Can anyone give me good reference points to tell if I have the right edition?
>>
>>7562644
It says "Fourth edition" on the first page. There's only like 20 first edition copies, one second edition, six third, 360 copies of the fourth edition are sold. Something like 7 DELUXE.
>>
>>7562673
Well, fuck. I have the first. How many editions did you go through on the 4th?
>>
>>7562673
>>7562844
Actually, as a follow-up: Exactly how fucked am I if I intend to "seriously" read it, and what was that code for free shipping + discount?
>>
>>7562844
1st edition is way better than the 2nd and 3rd
>>
>>7562673
>>7562861
Is the deluxe edition a color version of the 4th?
>>
>>7562859
First edition is super readable. Some pages span the full width of the page which makes it a little difficult to read but that's intended.

>>7562906
Yes, but with lower quality paper.

Hello, Bottleman here.

As of last week, I have been recreating the book in A5 format, trying my best to remain faithful to the original format but not binding. The final result, I have decided, is open for anyone to download. I have postponed revealing this version due to the sudden influx of redditors, so let them have the flawed book. I don't really mind much if bourbonfag comes and adopts this as the latest version, but I would fucking like, personally, some evidence that he isn't hoarding the lot like the pig people depict him. Anyway, here it is:

https://docs.google.com/document/d/15TFzFZzEDmn8jeOWs7ro8ZYayb4bKEte3uokoZSuAlQ/edit?usp=sharing

As far as I know, having gone through all 685 pages and making corrections (I left punctuation and some misspellings since, I think, they portray the spontaneity of the project in a nice way), but all my concerns have dissipated with this masterpiece.

My job is officially over, now I'll use this post to answer some questions that have been afloat recently concerning the new project.

Q: Is Bottleman profiting off Hypersphere?
A: Not a penny, no. It stands against my principle. It's not so much a matter of ethics as it is ownership. Now, why I didn't publish it and proceed to send the earnings to a charity, is explained as me having restricted my privilege to "editor." I had strong convictions that Hypersphere would not be commercialized at first. I would not betray /lit/ with independently publishing it to the net, but I can't say I'm not surprised by the denouement, given previous attempts as these.

Q: What do you think of C://... (New book project)?
A: I had people nod in my direction to take command of a new project or, the very least, collaborate with what's-his-name (Ishmael, had to look in the threads). I don't necessarily approve of his methodology, a bit ambivalent on the topic all over.

To expand on this, here's a little shocking revelation. To me, personally, Hypersphere is an utter failure, not devastating but more a minor disappointment. I made use of it to practice typography and diction style, but in hindsight all I wrote is "neat lexical acrobatics". All which proves I have a long path to traipse before my work is slightest respectful.

Q: Will you continue writing?
A: Yes. One person suggested a blog. I need time to think about it. I jokingly helped write a page in the 24 hr. GoogleDoc that was hosted yesterday, just because. Bigger projects? Don't see it, really.

Yeah, so this is, officially, the final edition. Enjoy, have a nice and cuckless 2016, guys.
