What hobbies are even sacred anymore?
Just waiting one one to take the last thing I hold dear.
I see 4chan being the next big thing that won't be social media, you can tell everyone is getting tired with how things are and there have even been news articles devoted to threads.
Ha! Our cartoons are the one medium that they cannot take over. Japan doesn't care for the market of American normies, and they aren't easily influenced by our tastes. On top of that, as long as the shows keep getting lewder and more perverted it will repel any normalshits who show the slightest curiosity about our interests.
I don't see any normies using trading cards.
That's been true for every generation, the underground (or socially inept beta) scene usually paves the way for normie culture
>nirvana started as a band for robot-tier people who were tired of the polished 80's
>nirvana ends as a mass-marketed symbol for a culture defined by normie-tier "denial of the mainstream" that was just a way for normies to feel like they were getting in on the feeling of being an outsider and different, in reality they were just trying to live out nike ads
>hipster culture starts out as /mu/-ish community centered around underground music and fashion, normies often ridiculed it for being pretentious
>now every H&M and Urban Outfitters is trying to be the ultimate "hipster" store, normies all wearing flannels and stupid shit that was never part of the fashion, aka "trying to look messy", hipster music is now just mainstream normies thinking they're deep by playing an acoustic guitar track and singing about normie love
emo culture also fits in here somewhere, although that was never really a non-normie thing i think. TL;DR, youth culture is entirely centered around trying to feel like you're getting in on the supposed "intimacy and individuality" of being an outcast while still being in the comfort of your normalfag zone. companies love to market this shit, and there'll definitely be something to replace hipster culture in about 5-7 years
>learning curve too steep for normalitos
>normies try to do philosophy
>use a bunch of heavy vocabulary to say "just b urself"
Find the spirit within you and allow it to be your guide rather than any outside force, bro.
amateur radio. seriously. you have to pass a test to do it, so the normies will never get into it, but it's an easy test if you're a robot. you can get a cheap radio, and it gives you a social outlet without face-to-face interaction.
>disregarding the product of a millenia's worth of great minds as "heavy vocabulary"
Kierkegaard was one of the greatest robots.
Normies just appropriate this stuff but they aren't very good at it or knowledgeable about it. That's the whole point of being a normie. Doing things for appearance rather than cultivating real understanding or skill.
>normies mainly play mainstream games like CoD and aren't even very good at them.
>some normies play "nerdier" games like Hearthstone, LoL, Dota, whatever, but they mostly suck ass and can't get past the 50% rank benchmark.
>normies hardly touch fighting games, learning curve is too high. If they play them they mainly spam or button mash.
>normies aren't even good at single player games, constantly fuck up simple bosses, build/lvl wrong shit in RPG's, take ages to solve puzzles, just garbage at them.
>normies don't even know about nerdier single player games like Dwarf Fortress, or classic 90's PC games.
>normies don't know fuck all about comic books besides Marvel movies, and they don't even know much about those.
I wouldn't even care if it weren't for the fact that so many of them claim to love/be obsessed with their hobby but are completely clueless about it. If you claim you're fucking amazing at CoD or LoL, but then I see you play and you're bad, I'm not gonna think highly of you're other opinions about gaming. At least be humble and say "Yeah, I'm not that great, I'm learning/just play for fun".
Now after writing this, I feel like I'm a catalyst for the problem. When a normie friend is playing a game and asks "hey, you're good at this, do you think I've gotten better?", I usually tell them "yeah, you've definitely improved since the last time I saw you", even though they haven't. If you try to give them constructive criticism they either ignore it and don't apply it, or they get mad. Feelings/appearance > ability/knowledge for normies.
I honestly feel bad for a lot of them because this applies to shit like their jobs and education too. They get into debt and aren't even worried about it until the loan shark's knocking.
Normalfags will never take masturbation from me.
This shit can consume you, but it helps to learn to let it go. Most people are idiots and that will never change. There's more casual shit infecting videogames these days, but also a bigger independent scene, granted most of that is shit too. The overall trend in videogames is improving.
Holy shit fucking this
>due to spending 95% of my time alone I've spent hours on /mu/ and /fa/ cultivating my personal taste
>lol anon you're such a hipster! Only a hipster would wear those clothes and listen to songs that are 10+ minutes long!!!!
>Normies took comic books
Only films, they don't give a quarter of an ass about the comics themselves.
>Normies are slowly taking anime and manga
Implying they don't hate anything Japanese that isn't Pocky, which is about as Japanese as a cheeseburger.
Tabletop war gaming
Arduino, soldering electronics, being a "maker"
Pen & paper RPG
Building plastic models or dioramas
Gardening (even house plants)
Puzzles (jigsaw or other kind)
That's a few things I can think of.
>normies are even taking shitposting
When I'm fed up with normies I go in my garage and do woodwork or fuck around with my car. Normies can't take what has no social aspect to it.
Same with beer, beer is normie as shit but I don't feel like normies took any of it by the time I'm nice and buzzed.
Books and comic books are definitely normie free.
Especially today when the youth are growing up in an enviroment where they are used to having instant gratification. They simply dont have the patience to open a book.
Even most Westerners who regularly or semi-regularly watch anime hate "fanservice" and "moe" and think otaku are the embodiment of the anti-Christ. They also can't stand the formulaic elements of anime. Normies are never going to get too deep into anime because the content is too incomprehensible and repulsive for them.
But that doesn't mean they can't try to destroy anime.
People used to say that Japanese games are never going to change no matter how much SJWs complain, but now some developers are self-censoring or refusing to release their games in the West. Or they get censored during localization, or the localizers decide to censor them on their own.
Anime is perhaps more resilient to SJWs, but we can no longer assume it's immune. What if SJW sites like ANN, MAL and AniDB and companies like Funimation decide to revolt? What if Crunchyroll joins them? What's going to happen then?
Japs don't give a shit what westerners think. It's only the western localization companies that change stuff in games. Anime is predominantly made catering specifically to the Japanese market because it barely sells here in the west aside from a very select few series. The Japanese market wants moe because they've realized how infinitely superior it is to 3dpd. As long as the Japanese market doesn't change, we're fine
Like I said, Japanese developers have already self-censored or decided not to publish in the West because of the SJW campaign against video games.
If the Western "anime community" (sites like ANN etc.) starts making a coordinated effort to attack anime, then who's to say that they won't succeed in making Japanese companies self-censor?
You can always learn to draw or something. And enjoy holding power over any normie who tells you what to do with your art. Also they're probably going after music next.
Because Japanese companies don't broadcast their shows straight to the west? Video games are completely different because many of them are made with the intent to distribute over seas in other markets. Moe blob anime is created to pander straight to the lucrative otaku market, that shit doesn't fly in the west and the studios know this. The western anime community doesn't mean shit to them in the way the western video game market does.
>calling yourself a nerd
It's like gay calling himself a faggot
Most anime is now simulcast on streaming services, and/or is released on BD. I would say that most Japanese games are never released in the West, or a very large portion of them aren't.
Pinball. Pic related is a popular new release. Imagine the shitstorm if this was a videogame. SJWs and normalfags aren't even aware of pinball as actual physical tables.
Pinball machines are bulky and expensive and noisy and break all the time, so they naturally repel normalfags.
Philosophy will always be autistic and robot-friendly, it's basically bunch of assberger losers trying to play their imaginary word games and talking about completely ludicrous abstract ideas that plenty of people deem irredeemable and nonsensecical, especially when they often come from people that often didn't mix with the majority/mainstream. Even if normals try to adopt it, there'll always be space for frogs to thrive.
I saw a chad play heathstone on his phone yesterday.
His friends were like "wtf man, what is this shit game" so he explained that it wasn't that bad, and told them the rules.
The funny thing is that if it was a beta he would have been bullied.
Since he was a chad they respectfully ilistened to him and seemed to get into it.
I'm going to reveal myself as an oldfag here, but Nirvana were normie as fuck pretty much the entire time. Grunge was like the nu-metal or emo of its day. Every fucking pleb jock listened to Pearl Jam and Bush and Alice in Chains. Nirvana may as well have been Warrant and Kurt Cobain was simply the next in line after Axl Rose.
Grunge was humiliating because it started the commercialisation of everything underground - punk, goth, indie, all of it got raped to shit by the machine in quick succession.
The whole hipster thing was a half arsed throwback to the 70's post punk and early 80's indie and new wave scenes, all mashed together and then promptly ripped apart by the cool hunters ad agencies and the like send out to set up the next culture rape by the mainstream.
The problem with hipster is that it gets mashed in by confused idiots who don't understand that what they think ofnas hipster is simply middle class consumption of acceptable left of centre fashion.

I still don't really like people after that year. It was the first time I realized no one actually gave a fuck about you if you're a beta. I was treated like shit universally, and rich people and upper middle class people are the most vicious hype rnormies and wanna be normies in the world.
>cool hobby/pastime is invented

>gradually normies see that the group is having fun
>they want to have fun too, but don't want to put too much effort
>normies mold the hobby to fit their idea of fun
>original purpose is lost
It has been like this forever. In the 80s computers were for people who knew how to use them. If someone didn't know how to use one, he could not use them. Gradually normies molded computers to their own tastes and now we have fucking full fledged computers that are faster than 1980s supercomputers being used by normies to run toy operating systems and play candy crush or angry birds.
Any robots here write graffiti?
>>Go out at night when normies are sleeping
>>Go to abandoned buildings and tunnels where normies would never go
>>Vandalize normie shit
Most writers are fucking weirdo's and it's pretty much impossible for it to be anything but underground
damn son that sucks !
I also have the feeling that more and more normies i know start taking MDMA or such at parties. Most of them are hipsters so i guess it's trendy ?
Couldn't your friend get these people out ? or did he really not care about them being at his place ?
Nothing worse than seing your little private comfy space invaded by normies
This is all simply a great example of what happens when a docile, weak and fragile group get overrun by a larger, more capable force.
What good were a bunch of man-children going to do against the tide of Normies and their attention seeking ways when it comes to 'Le Quirky Hobbies' and of course, their money... because the people who sell you the games, pop-science and anime are all in it to appeal to the wider demographic and that is no longer nerds but Normies.
>Nothing worse than seing your little private comfy space invaded by normies
Yeah, exactly. It's fucking awful. I wish i was better with words, but it's a really shitty feeling.
>Couldn't your friend get these people out
He always fantasized about living the "epic teen parties" you see on t.v all the time. He was just happy to be surrounded by people I think. He ended up homeless after his dad kicked him out. I tried to help him (and his mum and little sister). He was mentally ill though, and violent. His mom and little sister ended up getting into a shelter, but he couldn't go because he was a male. He eventually was too dangerous to really be around. He was always in and out of jail. I know he raped someone, but I don't think he ever got caught. I moved and lost all contact, so no clue what ever happened to him.
i write graffiti , but i go around vandalizing normie shit wich can be seen by the normies basically i tag the windows of shops till they are rendered useless and they have to replace them , fuck normies
>have normie friends
>don't even bother talking books with them
>don't even think they read anything besides pleb tier bestsellers or "the game of thrones books" as they call them

Wish programming was like that...
>Programming began as something people did out of a passion for doing it
>People who did it were generally despised and made fun of for how uninteresting their interests were to society at large
>Goes on for the 70's, 80's and a good chunk of the 90's
>People actually interested in programming don't give a fuck, they just keep on hacking code for fun, to impress their friends and now with the .com boom under way also profit
>At this point it's mostly men, but with a few more than competent women strewn in here and there proving that the gender "disparity" is mostly just due to women's attitudes
>As the .com boom gets under way and people start realizing that you can make big money on hacking code
>Suddenly the people they spent decades making fun of are great "oppressors" and servants of the "patriarchy" because they don't let women into their field despite clear evidence that the problem is actually women not being interested in the field
>Loads and loads of women not really interested in programming, just the idea of it and the cushy well paid jobs the programmers of the past have created for themselves
>Massive uptake in "community representatives" to add seats for women who aren't even interested in programming, just being sociopaths with power
>As the years go on this gets worse and worse with more tech giants trying to capitalize on their "diversity" programs
>Now all male programmers are pretty much lick the shoes of any women even remotely interested in their field
I really wish I had been born in the early 70's rather than the late 80's and could have been part of the tech scene before society at large decided to steal it from the people who had created it...
I use nyaa and have for years, and now I need a weeb enclave apparently?
>not wanting le sekrit club to be autistic about
Normies will never get into the private tracker culture, most normies barely understand torrenting as it is so nyaa is safe for now
We need to keep anime as spergy and elitist as possible familia, they'll leave it alone just like tabletop gaming
This t.b.h. No normie can master this art of patience, dedication and solitude. Pic related took me 20+ hours of folding.
I watched a video of a comic/anime convention from 1998 and it's so different than now. There were no sluts and normies cosplaying for the attention, just nerds being nerds. It was beautiful. We will never get that back.
Everyone watches HS because 95% of the time they release first, since simulcasts are just able to get subs done faster than fansubbers can. And even though I like fansubs, I understand why most people often don't find it worth waiting a day, or X days for, unless the official subs are egregiously bad
Then in the 5% case of cases where fansubbers release first, you get things like Commie's Dagashi Kashi where it almost seems like they're trying to piss people off
>almost seems like
>implying commie doesn't exist purely to piss people off
Most just go for "nerd cred" so they can have bragging rights on social media. It's entirely stupid. I think combining TV shows with Comicon was one of the worst things they could do.
Then you're ether lucky or have really low standards for "knowing your stuff" because I've worked with HR hiring programmers and in my experience there's always a few women who genuinely know their shit while something like 90% are completely clueless. With men it's roughly 50-50 these days.
He was pretty fucking beta, and was suicidally depressed before being a child soldier. That is why normies hate him.
Old videogames like WRPGs, RTS and some of the older JRPGs are just fine.
Normies won't touch reading or writing for the most part.
Shit like 50 shades of gray aside, it's pretty tame. Good for lots of stuff too.
Yeah, you're right for the most part.
But convincing them to read something like The Brothers Karmazov, House of leaves or even the Dark Tower series is near impossible, since they can't wrap their heads around it.
Take it from a normie like myself, fnm is full of robot-passing normies. One of my best pals goes to Friday night every week then hits the club with his bros and gets fucked up. Just cause they look robot doesn't mean they always are
Competitive gaming. Speedrunning. Tabletop rpgs. Tcgs. Toy collecting.
Honestly though even these have had some degree of normie infiltration.
So basically you're just all butthurt that corporations co-opt youth culture, and youth are dumb enough to buy into it under the pretense that it affords them "individuality." You're being the ultimate hipster by claiming participation in your "original" trend before it was monetized. Get over yourself. There's nothing special about you or your stupid youth culture.
Classical music is aight. The only problem is you get a 12-15 year old from time to time looking for attention by going "oh look at me I'm so much better than the rest of my generation" but those don't hang around long.
What are you talking about? Competitive gaming is full of normies ever since LoL came about.
Speedrunning is a joke. It's one of the most retarded, autistic and cancerous communities on par with furries. The couple or ok people in there are themselves saying they regret getting into it.
Never played tcgs tho that may be good, many people recommend it, I guess I'll try and find a group.
Idk I don't mind black people playing white characters but only as long as it doesn't interfere with the character. This is the instance where it will. I mean people would be shitting themselves if the cast Blade as a white dude even tho being black isn't important to the character (it's iconic but afaik it doesn't have any importance for plot, the same way you ould argue that rolad is supposed to look like clint eastwood)
Nice job, I'm far too autistic for origami but that look really nice.
Aside from Attack on Titan (although I doubt they read the manga) and other occasional anime, I seriously doubt normies watch anime
It's pretty nice. And /a/ is a decent (although still a lot of off topic shit with no board culture threads)
A normie wouldn't be caught dead watching this. They watched Kill la Kill for the action and enjoyed the dumb humor, because they're dumb, not because it's ironic
Yeah i meant i used to always see the same kind of faces at raves and these last years i see new people that i would never have imagined taking pills. I dont mind tho cause with MDMA i cannot help but love everybody
>Normies are slowly taking anime and manga
We're still safe here, normies only watch and read the most boring trite entry level shit which everyone else should be embarrassed about reading. Seriously, it's like their knowledge of manga ends with OP/Naruto/Bleach/Fairy Tail/HxH and now OPM. They'll never even bother to make it far enough into the actual good stuff.
>tfw the guys who relentlessly teased you for playing video games are now games are now the "serious gamer" types who play shit like cal of duty and league of legends
I would say probably DBZ is the most normalfag anime if we're going by the western names (since it was only ever Dragonball in nipland). I don't know a single normalfag who has read it at all or watched any Dragonball prior to it being named DBZ however. I remember there was a time when I was in secondary school where literally every male watched DBZ.
Despite all of its shitty writing at times and endless anime filler, the DB manga is still an enjoyable read and Toriyama did some great work in it for a long, long period of time. It's not a fluke that it's the most popular manga series everywhere in the world (except maybe South America where they seem to prefer Saint Seiya).
Normies can never take over anime because they hate moe too much.
I've more or less stopped watching any anime unless it's an adaptation of something I've read or unless I'm a fan of the director/some of staff (I'll watch literally anything directed by Yoshiaki Kawajiri and anything with Yoh Yoshinari as key animator).
As far as DB goes, I appreciate Toriyama made it up as he went along but most of the criticism DB gets is from the anime. The manga is still pretty solid. The art took a hit when he started drawring everyone really angular but around late DB/early DBZ his art was fantastic, simple but good and not overly detailed but with enough detail to not look bland, almost perfect for a comic book. And he still does the best motion lines for fights, everyone praises Murata for the stuff he does for OPM fights without realising that he's essentially expanding on a formula that Toriyama perfected.
I'm not mad people are liking what I like, I feel like if more people like x, then x will continue to grow. What I'm mad about is being harassed and picked on for liking something, and now since that something is the new big thing everyone pretends to like it and its fine.
I hope normies don't take edups from us
What are you implying about muh file name?
They seem to want to prove that they are more well rounded than autist rejects. "Look, I can do everything you do better and get laid and go to parties and clubs"
Just do what you enjoy and forget about them. Doing something because it is obscure and "safe" from normie infiltration is a dumb reason to do anything.
I love that guy. He'd make a cute bf. Plus he could take you on exotic trips and teach you about stuff. And the dancing too!
I'm more into Matt Easton than Skall myself.
But Lindybeige is the greatest of the triumvirate.
Yeah, I know who you are talking about, but I haven't seen her in any other videos.
I did my math wrong, he is either 46 or 47, as he was 37 in 2006:
He said it as a joke, but he doubled down on it when people on a vegetarian dating site got his website taken down and his access to the University (he was a lecturer) revoked because of the controversy.
i felt really disgusted and angering when reading this greentext
i'm truly sorry that happen to you, anon. you have shown me a new light
I actually enjoy these stories, when normies get thrown out of their element. Happened a few times for me to witness and it felt good. One was senior year and this popular kid wanted to get blunted with us.
>We're like ok... he never would talk to us at all, pretty out of the blue.
>All of a sudden him and his buddies are asking for hook ups. Don't wanna get involved, so i introduce him to some people, ones i don't normally associate with.
>by the end of the year they are all fucking up their classes and not getting into schools they wanted
>mfw they can't handle a little pot
Nothing is like that anymore, any firm would kill for a moderately attractive/normal female stem major. If they can just make it through they have a golden ticket. If they happen to be kinda smart it's game over, grants and scholarships rain from the sky. It's basically like being black except being an attractive girl gets you out of trouble with police.
>>Normies took video games
>>Normies took comic books
While this is partially true, it's really not COMPLETELY true. Remember, normies are shallow and thus they only latch onto trends and whatever's popular. They often tend to be very ignorant about these mediums altogether, regarding pretty much whatever you name: game design, superheroes, whatever you think of.
While there is a ton of pandering to this group from mainstream developers or publishers, like EA or what Marvel has been doing the past few years, just know that normies will NEVER have an especially deep, intimate understanding of video games, game design, the video game industry, video games that are out of the mainstream, comic books, obscure comic book superheroes, comics that are not superheroes, etc.
>Why would something that doesn't support voice or video chat ever appeal to normalslimes?
Did you even read OP's question? Turn off the tripcode and stop trying to be a personality, you're just making yourself look stupid.
Not sure if you are implying Lindybased is a normie or if his channel is normie free.
Try Gunpla it is great for beginners and has a huge amount of depth for experienced vets, I have been only been doing it for two years now but I still have fun with each new model kit I get
Books are weird, b/c plenty of normies actually read and readers are generally given more respect, from my experience. But most readers are pleb as fuck anyway.
Like, my brother is kind of a tryhard and prides himself on how much of a reader he is. His tumblr is dedicated to books, authors, and libraries, but in literally every other medium that I can think of, he's kind of a pleb. He used to be kind of a hipster, but those days are gone. He doesn't watch underground or indie movies anymore, he doesn't check out indie music anymore, he doesn't play video games anymore and when he used to, he'd play normie trash like CoD, and his taste in comic books is a joke. I actually kind of hate him.
Meanwhile, like every other woman I've ever met who reads has awful taste and basically just reads every YA or fantasy series that's 'in' at the moment. Twilight, the Hunger Games, Harry Potter, etc. And so many of those probably didn't even like fantasy/speculative fiction at first until it were popular.
These people can only latch onto things that are popular, I swear to god.
Normies might know about Pink Floyd and other entry level stuff, but they will never hear about Magma or even Peter Hammill, they will call it "weird music xDDD"
Once I joined Prog Archives forums, the userbase was literally 50% men over their 30s, 30% young adults, 15% teens (I was 16 at time), he other 15% were over their 60s. There was only one female user I can remember. It was pretty comfy.
If there is one thing you guys should remember about normies is that they will never dig something too much, they will always keep in the entry level, this goes to comics, anime and music.
TheOriginalHDChannel (destroying stuff)
Jogwheel (Is it a Good Idea to Microwave This?)
Techrax (see first one)
Photonicinduction (Electrical/Mechanical stuff)
Aussie50 (Mechanical) (I know he's Aussie, but he's gud)
Funny, I remember searching for the "washing machine destruction" video that led me to discovering photonicinduction after it was featured on one of the early episodes of the totally normie Tosh.O.
>Tfw shoegaze is an utterly shallow genre
>Tfw in shoegaze band and want to be groundbreaking, but I'm shit at bass
I mean it's not that easy to "dig deep" into the music. Like, MBV is about as classic as I've bothered to get into it and that's normie as fuck. There are some newer bands that don't have much exposure, but they're not really the sound I enjoy.
Grand Strategy Games
Kabbalism (Jewish or otherwise)
Nonsense. Prog was absolutely huge, stadium tier and mainstream as fuck when it was actually relevant.
ITT : retarded children who actually think all the pleb as fuck mainstream interests they have are actually thuper thethial thecret club tier

Steadily gaining momentum with liberals
My own Chad friend fucked many a furry slut at cons and on first dates
Everything else with the exception of Tabletop and maybe free jazz is pretty autistic though.

Warhammer 40,000 is litearlly the last bastion of nerd culture, free from women, SJWs, and the mainstream.
A lot of this can be credit to what the hobby actually (requires a lot of patience and math, normies don't like this) combined with the incredibly stubborn and inflexible company that runs it. They are behind the times and refuse to modernize, which means it's still early 2000's in its outlook.
But how much longer will 40k remain pure? Who knows
I started going to cons in 2003, maybe a few years before they started getting really popular.

It used to be that everyone was there because they loved anime. Now people just go because they want to party for 3 days.
>Normies will infiltrate 4chan
You're about 10 years late on that one, bruh
and if that wasn't bad, the shitstorm after dark knight and first ironman also brought in a lot of fakers and "nerd cred" whores, along with the fucking whores like jessica nigri etc
I don't think Normies will ever get into Toys and shit.
Especially Lego, though I can understand cyborgs remembering Bonkles fondly.
Toys are one of the hobbies that autists like us enjoy dearly and normies dont dare venture into, because it requires a certain amount of dedication
>>>/toy/ is a pretty good place
Most classical music, aside from the really obvious Vivaldi's "four seasons" tier stuff, is safe from Normies and will be forever.
>crafted by masters of the art of music composition
>rehearsed by disciples of the craft who are in it 90% for the love of it (the pay sucks if you can even manage to get paid)

>But how much longer will 40k remain pure?
I'm so sorry anon...
I love legos, like they just make me lose time tinkering away with them
Also because of some pretty bad adhd i have an incredibly hard time focusing on things, but with legos (and science) i can focus and it feels simply amazing to have my brain be able to work properly
But to the point
>legos are literally normie repellent
You can say you like legos in front of a normie and they are immediately repulsed
>tfw one of my favorite hobbies will always be safe
Feels good fampai
I'm a violinist and everyone I seen at my academy is normie as fuck. It's all normie students, teachers, etc. I plan to study classical music in university too and it looks no different.
I CAN'T TAKE NORMIES ANYMORE! SOMEONE NEEDS TO GET RID OF THEM! ALL OF THEM! RIGHT NOW!
nothing i'm afraid because the whole new hipster wave of normies pretent to be open minded as fuck and will choose any wierd or 'different' hobby
to make themselfs individuals and special snowflakes
I doubt it. The reason 4chan has such a racist, anti-feminist stance is to keep away normies. Any normies that wander in will be warded off getting butthurt by other people's opinions
Post a vid of your band familia
Also, shoegaze is pretty comfy to listen, just train with your bass and eventually you will be at least mediocre, which is better than shit as you say
Ordo Hereticus requesting Exterminatus immediately.
Not having a whole lot of action doesn't make it boring.
>prog was absolutely huge
Well, for Pink Floyd and Genesis maybe, but 99% of the bands didn't have more than 10k people watching then live. Some never make it to a concert at all, and I'm not talking about garage bands, I'm talking about bands who are influential to this day.
I remember when Camel performed in my country around 2008/09, people sat on tables and ate dinner while the band was performing, not even 5 thousand people went there, but it was truly magestic.
Prog is normie-proof, if they start to listen to it they will stop being normies, since listening to it don't imply you wil have any social status later for listening "weird music xdd", and the music itself will make then think about their lives, there's heavy philosophy in most of the songs.
>be 4 years ago
>be fat, greasy never show nerd into manga, anime and videogames
>would torrent latest shit and read the anime charts for the season.
>lose weight, instantly become an almost chad
>still love everything but normies are infiltrating my hobbies
>am grouped in with them now
Fuck you guys
Yeah but do you see normies playing DnD left and right? No, but you do see them jumping on the Bazinga train. The OP was asking what hobby is still sacred and not infested with normies, and its DnD. Even if its popular, norms wont be flocking to it because the entry level is too high for their attention spans. Or at least thats what I think he was asking.
Im pretty sure we are not lumping "normies" into the single category of attractive and fit with nerd hobbies but more along the lines of "Has a nerd hobby just so they use it as facebook fodder and you can easily tell they have a shallow interest in the culture"
If you are legit anybody can tell if your interest is genuine. You know, and you're just not the male equivalent of a gamergurl. But you bragging about being almost chad is grounds enough to hate you tho
What? That's an awesome Mohsar cosplay! Looks like he has some cool conversions on the left, too. Where was this? Seems like a cool meta!
>anime and manga
>What hobbies are even sacred anymore?
Anything that actually require an attention span
that show was better before they forced a bunch of autists to end up with "hotties" and turn it into something for casuals. now it's all bout their dynamics as couples.
once again something ruined because they have to have their romance crap and other casual crap
If normies ever get into d&d, I'm going to kill myself.
