Today's my birthday, everyone! 19 years old and counting!
I'm a new poster here, yet I have been an avid follower of BiTF since it beginnings, when Matthew opened a thread at Gamefaqs to showcase his delicious creations (Aaah, the memories...)
You're probably thinking "...Sooo?"
Well, just taking advantage of this ocassion to ask you guys and gals a favor.
I've been looking to expand my cultural knowledge. If everyone that leaves a post in this thread could each suggest me anything (a song, movie, tv show, webcomic, book) that calms down my thirst for culture, it would make for the ultimate birthday present.
So, thanks in advance, everyone! ^_^ I'm looking forward to become a new member of this Family.

Could you elaborate on what you mean by "culture"?

Could you elaborate on what you mean by "culture"?

Sure, sir. I'm seeking suggestions on books, webcomics, movies, songs, or any other media that you guys find to be worth checking out, so I can get to know a wide variety of stuff thanks to your recommendations. Re-reading its definition now, maybe "culture" wasn't the most appropiate term to use, but I'm still learning ;)
I'm very open minded, so I'll appreciate every single answer on this thread.

Is there any way you could be more specific? Are you looking for something thought provoking or entertaining or what?

It's just that what you've said so far is really broad, so people can only really post their favorite things.

Thank you so much, dude! Already saved the link on my bookmarks so I can check it out in full detail.

Well, thought-provoking and entertaining are exactly the kind of adjectives that I'd appreciate the most. You nailed it...I'm looking for something that will give me a laugh, keep me amused and entertained...Or make me stop and reflexionate about certain topics, completely changing my perception on something...A quality product among those lines,. You're right, my petition was quite broad at first...Hopefully this will solve the problem.

www.homestarrunner.com -- Homestar Runner here. My absolute favourite Internet cartoon, and has also been a tremendous inspiration for me when I was younger. It's also totally clean humour! No swearing or sexual jokes here. That's a rarity on the Internet nowadays. Unfortunately, they seem to be on an update hiatus at the moment. But I'm sure they'll return to it soon. There also seems to be a few problems with the website currently. I don't know... But check it out anyway!


www.kingdomofloathing.com -- Kingdom of Loathing. It's a free online game, but it's a mostly a parody of games in general. For instance, instead of going for the cutting-edge, "high-def" graphics of games today... this game uses little doodles of stick figures for every graphic in the game. It's also utterly hilarious, with intelligent jokes and wit around every corner, in every item's description, every monster fight message. Even the game update announcement messages are funny. For some reason, KoL has seemed to attract a mostly intelligent user-base, which is odd considering the typical userbase of online games. Just look at the official forums, and you'll notice it's not a horrible mess of Internet idiots like most online games' official forums.

I thought of two things.

1. This song (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P8Q9dz1kse8). I think this falls under entertaining or rather calming, since I don't think it is really thought-provoking. Also, since many people are posting web-comics, I thought it might be nice to post something that does not actually take much of one's time.

2. And this (http://www.wmich.edu/medieval/resources/IOE/). I wouldn't read all if it if I were you, just the first chapter. I think this would fall under culture, knowing the origin of your language (you probably had it at school, but usually it is not in depth at all).

Welcome to the forums!

Anyways, here's a duet of comics I like, both from the same cartoonist - Narbonic (http://www.webcomicsnation.com/shaenongarrity/narbonic_plus/series.php) and Skin Horse. (http://www.webcomicsnation.com/shaenongarrity/skinhorse/series.php)

Narbonic's about a mad scientist, and her minons. It finished up awhile ago, but it's rerunning with commentary ATM.

Skin Horse is about a secret government agency, which handles with humanoid creatures. It's one of those "have to read to believe" kind of Webcomics, so yeah.

So yeah. Happy Birthday!

Silly me, I didn't notice you posted this today: happy birthday!

I must say this is one of the more creative introduction topics so far, though it does fit better here than in the Fountain in my opinion.

Awesome dude, you share your birthday with the finest Englishman on the forums. >_>
Did you say music? Delightful. Seeing as I do precious little else other than listen to banging choons, I could supply a few.
What's your preferred genre? I've got a bit of most things, other than a couple of genres like classical.

Some comics & other daily things I look at include:
BitF(Obviously)
Phil Likes Tacos: A gaming comic. It gets a little slow at some points, but I like it because I get the jokes.
Cyanide & Happiness: A kind of mature comic, but I bet some of the forumers here have heard of it.
Cracked.com: Not a webcomic, but everyday is has interesting articles on random things in life. I stay interested in the articles because they are actually funny. But they are a bit mature sometimes.
Funnyjunk.com: Everyday this site has new funny pictures. Most of which are posted in the Picture War Topic.
That's all I got for now.

Wait a year or two and I'll totally suggest my own novel!

...that's probably not very proper, is it?

Uhh, well, I don't watch a lot of movies. TV show... Though most of the good ones are in the past now, but my favorite is probably Animaniacs and those related to it. As for music I listen to is from video games, but Grant Kirkhope (http://grantkirkhope.com/samplecomposition.html) is probably my favorite composer.

It's kind of difficult because I'm not sure what you're already interested in so I could rattle off a list of redundancies. Except I'm not sure I could rattle off a list of anything.

Happy birthday!

As for movies, you may have seen most of them (since they're quite popular), but I'm on a bit of a Pixar kick right now so I'd have to recommend their films. Special mention goes to The Incredibles and WALL-E, both highly creative, artistic and risk-taking movies that show just how versatile the company can get.

I'm going to go ahead and throw The Dark Knight out there for movies.

Books... Hm. The Dresden Files are entertaining, but if you want classics try Swiss Family Robinson. It's one of my favorite books of all time.

This song. Is the best song ever. (http://www.youtube.com/watch#!v=XJe8n8Tusjg&feature=related)
Excuse the intro, it was the only video I could find with the guitar solo at the beginning.

Alright, the stuff I recommend will either give you an entirely new perspective on life or bore you to death, probably the latter. Some are well known and you've probably watched/read/heard.

Film:

Tsotsi- About a thug in South Africa, but it delves into race relations, poverty, inequality and south african life. Very powerful.

Hotel Rwanda- About a hotel manager in Rwanda at the time of the genocide. Very powerful.

Brazil- About a dystopia. Just watch it, an amazing piece of film.

Apocalypse Now- About the vietnam war.

Full Metal Jacket- Again about vietnam, more hard hitting.

Crash- **** it, i'm not giving a description about everyone, google it and find out.

Schindler's list

The Pianist

Pan's Labyrinth

Pulp Fiction

One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest

The Life Of Brian

Kes

The Shining

Reservoir Dogs

Mississippi Burning

Gomorrah

Sin Nombre

This Is England

**** it that;s enough for now. Anyone can get through a film, but books it depends how long you're willing to read? Or whether you want fiction or non-fiction or light reading...so if you answer that I'll recommend some books. Music, it depends if you know what you like whether it's rock/rap/punk etc or you want to expand your taste a little or want stuff that's really out there and you might not even know about but will still broaden your horizons...

Villerar
June 28th, 2010, 03:29 PM
Responding to cyanide_'s suggestions:

The Pianist - I saw that one at school, it is a very good movie, though very... direct and brutal.

Isn't Gomorrah an extremely gory movie about the mafia? (I didn't watch it.)

cyanide_
June 28th, 2010, 04:01 PM
Yeah it's about the Camorra in Naples http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Camorra

It is quite bloody, but in a necessary way.

Villerar
June 28th, 2010, 04:03 PM
Ah yes, I was afraid I mixed things up. The Camorra are actually not Mafia, after all (though also professional criminal scum), so I did mix things up. :P

Avenue Q, 2004 Best Musical, Music Score, and Book Tonies, is an amazing musical, with a twist on the actors.

Avenue Q is a prarody os Sesame Street, but with twentysomething characters dealing with issues such as unemployment, racism, and find your purpose. Actors freely travel the stage with puppets in hand, revealing themselves to the audience. It has an elaborate storyline following Princeton, fresh out of college, moving to the Avenue to find his purpose in life, metting friends along the way. Be warned though, it is not a show for kids, and has swearing, explicit moments of puppet intimacy, and other adult themes.

If you want to know more, here are a few links.

Are you willing to check out videogames as well? If yes, I reccomend the Metal Gear Solid series (1 is for PS1/Gamecube, 2 and 3 are for PS2, 4 is for PS3).

Of course, there are many more worth mentioning, but I can't remember them all right now.

Hey, everyone! Monday was a total blast. Not a worry in the world, everything went as smooth as it could. Just a fantastic day, the best I've had in recent memory.
You guys certainly helped to make that happen. I'm quite touched at everyone's generosity on this thread, taking their time to suggest fantastic stuff to a dude who just came by. Not that it surprises me on this forum, heh. Yet, I cannot help but wear a goofy smile on my face as I read the responses here...You're all amazing, Brawlers!
...As a total contrast to Monday's unproductive fun, I was very busy yesterday (at the time of writting this, "yesterday" just ended an hour ago here where I live), hence why I couldn't come here and respond sooner. No way I'm going to forget to come back and reply to every single one of you guys and girls, though! It's the least I can do. Hopefully I can do so later on the day. Thanks again!

Mexico's days last 8 times as long as any other place's day, you must believe me!
...Okey, so work got in the way. Sorry, guys! But I have been very attentive to your suggestions, checking them out whenever I have time. And so I make at least a bit of advance, I'll be responding to the first posters now...And the rest before not too long. Hope you comprehend!

No swearing or sexual jokes here. That's a rarity on the Internet nowadays. Unfortunately, they seem to be on an update hiatus at the moment. But I'm sure they'll return to it soon.

For some reason, KoL has seemed to attract a mostly intelligent user-base, which is odd considering the typical userbase of online games. Just look at the official forums, and you'll notice it's not a horrible mess of Internet idiots like most online games' official forums.

Aaaah, Homestar Runner, finally I get to meet you, after seeing your games arriving at Wiiware and you being surrounded by praise everywhere, without the knowledge of who you really were! "Theme Song" is my favorite short so far, and that introduction video within First Time Here? was very nice. As a mexican fella, the spanish version joke had added comedic appeal. Somos amigos! I'll be looking forward to explore this in deep.

I haven't had time to create a character on Ko(o)l yet, but I'm definitely curious about the game, the introductions and descriptions are very witty, managing to be silly and clever at the same time...The Mispelled Cemetary is win in natural shape. Just curious, what class did you pick? Thank you so much for your recommendations, man! The effort you put on those descriptions is admirable.


I thought of two things.

1. This song (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P8Q9dz1kse8). I think this falls under entertaining or rather calming, since I don't think it is really thought-provoking. Also, since many people are posting web-comics, I thought it might be nice to post something that does not actually take much of one's time.

2. And this (http://www.wmich.edu/medieval/resources/IOE/). I wouldn't read all if it if I were you, just the first chapter. I think this would fall under culture, knowing the origin of your language (you probably had it at school, but usually it is not in depth at all).

Exquisite piece, ideal for relaxing purposes after a busy day. Lately, my 13-years old bro has been sleeping on my room, and I usually play soothing tunes on the laptop when he wants to sleep already. He's not huge on classical music, but this piece is the exception to that rule. We both just put our worries aside and let our ears lose themselves in this delightful parade of pristine instruments... Poetic, eh?

I had the opportunity to spend 3 months studying on an American school, and you're right, the teacher introduced us to Anglo-Saxon history...if briefly, with the animated adaptation of Beowulf occupying most of the class' time instead. That link will prove useful in more than a way, even if I stick to the first chapter; culturally speaking, this is very informative stuff...In the other hand, since English is not my native language, I have many words left to know, let alone master! Since the article has a rich vocabulary and it's clearly well written, this oughtta help the cause.

Thanks a lot for these awesome suggestions, your birthday greeting and the topic's compliment, my friend!


Welcome to the forums!

Anyways, here's a duet of comics I like, both from the same cartoonist - Narbonic (http://www.webcomicsnation.com/shaenongarrity/narbonic_plus/series.php) and Skin Horse. (http://www.webcomicsnation.com/shaenongarrity/skinhorse/series.php)

Narbonic's about a mad scientist, and her minons. It finished up awhile ago, but it's rerunning with commentary ATM.

Skin Horse is about a secret government agency, which handles with humanoid creatures. It's one of those "have to read to believe" kind of Webcomics, so yeah.

So yeah. Happy Birthday!

Oh man, Narbonic is undeniably hilarious. Everything about this is great so far, the characters, the humor, the concept is genius. I was reading it from the beginning with Shaenon's commentaries, but as funny and insightful as she can be, spoilers are bound to appear, so I'll rather read the series first and create my own thoughts, then read the author's
I definitely enjoy Skin Horse a lot too, albeit in a different way. It seems to give more importance to character's depth and the intricate premise behind it than Narbonic, while still having good humor. Of course I have just read, what, 20 or so strips from each? That number will increase, that I assure you.
UPDATE: The above was written when I was just getting to know Narbonic. I fell in love with the strip faster than a NASCAR car fueled by rockets. I finished it just now and just…Maaaaan was this beautiful or what. Incredibly awesome stuff…I’m infinitely grateful for this, dude. Thank you from here to eternity for introducing me to the strip. one of the more unique and enjoyable I've had the pleasure to read.

Awesome dude, you share your birthday with the finest Englishman on the forums. >_>
Did you say music? Delightful. Seeing as I do precious little else other than listen to banging choons, I could supply a few.
What's your preferred genre? I've got a bit of most things, other than a couple of genres like classical.

Is that so? When I'll meet said gentleman? You make him sound like quite a character.
It's likely that by the time I die, "listening to banging choons" will have made up 10% of my existence, so I'm all up for new songs! I like to keep it varied, there's not really a genre I dislike from what I know. Rock, pop, jazz, heavy metal, electronic, instrumental...Surprise me, man!


Some comics & other daily things I look at include:
BitF(Obviously)
Phil Likes Tacos: A gaming comic. It gets a little slow at some points, but I like it because I get the jokes.
Cyanide & Happiness: A kind of mature comic, but I bet some of the forumers here have heard of it.
Cracked.com: Not a webcomic, but everyday is has interesting articles on random things in life. I stay interested in the articles because they are actually funny. But they are a bit mature sometimes.
Funnyjunk.com: Everyday this site has new funny pictures. Most of which are posted in the Picture War Topic.
That's all I got for now.

-BiTF's a blast and I suggest everyone who's reading this to check it out immediately ;D
-Phil Likes Tacos is lighthearted fun, easy to pick up n' read. It's gonna take me years to reach the present day, though..
-Aaaah, Cyanide & Happiness, the South Park of Webcomic Land. An avid fan of it, thanks to my brother...Dark humor than can be pretty clever on ocassion and very humorous with the right mindset. "Waiting for the Bus" is a jewel.
-Haha, my brother visits Cracked but I had yet to do so, and I'm happy I did. Informative on ocassion and consistently funny. Plus, I'm always up for randomness in any shape or form.
-Self explanatory title, really...Some good laughs here and there.
Thank you man!


Have you ever seen Princess Bride? It's a great movie, despite what the title suggests.

I've heard nothing but praise for it, so I went to rent movies this week, hoping to build up a supply of movies suggested by you guys..Sadly, I couldn't find it. I'd have to know if the movie was ever released here in Mexico, and if so, under what name...Those in charge tend to give some films titles that couldn't be any different from the original! Suffice to say The Hurt Locker is known as The Fear Zone in this side of the world. I'd do my best to find it, though! Thanks, oh Mighty Box for your equally mighty suggestion!


Listen to Sigur Rós. It will change your life.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_5v4vkc317Y

I'll be darned if this isn't a nice change after listening to so much metal and pop tunes lately...Intense yet relaxing. Hoppipolla's video gave me a severe case of the smiles..I'll be looking more on Sigur's work, definitely. Thaaaank you, man!


Wait a year or two and I'll totally suggest my own novel!

...that's probably not very proper, is it?

Uhh, well, I don't watch a lot of movies. TV show... Though most of the good ones are in the past now, but my favorite is probably Animaniacs and those related to it. As for music I listen to is from video games, but Grant Kirkhope (http://grantkirkhope.com/samplecomposition.html) is probably my favorite composer.

It's kind of difficult because I'm not sure what you're already interested in so I could rattle off a list of redundancies. Except I'm not sure I could rattle off a list of anything.

Aaah, Animaniacs, that's some good nostalgia there. I'll probably get more of the jokes now that I'm grown up, hehe.
I was always a firm believer of Rare's gifted composers, but I never knew of the man behind the tunes. The Final Battle from BK alone speaks greatly about Grant, but there's also Banjoland from Nuts n' Bolts, the atmospheric melodies from Goldeneye...So much quality from one mind.
Thanks for this, man! And about your future novel, screw what's proper and what isn't dude, that's some confidence and determination you showed there! I like that! Once that time passes, I'll read your novel right away!

You're speaking to said gentleman right now. :V
Okay, I'll get various bands. Bear in mind that sometimes censorship means I can see some songs that you can't on Youtube. If this is the case, you'll have to find 'em yourself. :P
Nirvana is a well-known and highly influential grunge band from the Americalands. I'd be pretty surprised if you've heard /nothing/ by them...
Smells Like Teen Spirit (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hTWKbfoikeg)
Come As You Are (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vabnZ9-ex7o)
About a Girl (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AhcttcXcRYY)

Megadeth, Metallica, Anthrax, and Slayer - the 'big four' of thrash metal. I'm not a big fan of Slayer, but I have here examples from the others.
Megadeth - Symphony of Destruction (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xX6UjWMffaY)
Metallica - Enter Sandman (please note the song starts about a minute in) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1QP-SIW6iKY)
Anthrax - Caught in a Mosh (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zlLn0UicWrM)

Led Zeppelin, and Deep Purple, are seen as pioneers of heavy metal music. Black Sabbath were the first real heavy metal band, but Zeppelin and Purple got it started.
Led Zeppelin - Stairway to Heaven (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BcL---4xQYA)
Led Zeppelin - Kashmir (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eKtfjsonPFE)
Led Zeppelin - Black Dog (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uKyzyjfyuPU)
Deep Purple - Smoke on the Water (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9f7LwuVF8Oo)
Deep Purple - Hush (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u1kZ9zYr7kk)
Deep Purple - Stormbringer (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V5q8jZCpTUg)

Fancy something a bit different? Then you might like Alestorm, a power/folk metal band with one of the more awesome themes - pirates!
Leviathan (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JTmuTxtNOsc)
Captain Morgan's Revenge (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hfYq-7zAQFA)
Keelhauled (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ta-Z_psXODw)

Rock and metal overload? No problem, I don't just listen to them. Here's some other bands that don't fully fall under rock or metal.
Pendulum - Blood Sugar (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3b0J8cw8ZWE), Slam (please note that the video is pretty awesome) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YWnpwV63KiY)
Gorillaz - Clint Eastwood (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1V_xRb0x9aw), Feel Good Inc. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HyHNuVaZJ-k)
"Weird Al" Yankovic - White and Nerdy (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E6Zc9NyYH-k), Jurassic Park (try to find the video, srsly) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4QDHcDtMp5w)

English is not my native language, I have many words left to know, let alone master!

Oh please dooo-on't be...siii-illy... Your command of the English language is great.

Unfortunately, if you don't mind, I'm going to hold off on some suggestions, because, you see, one of the doors which I would show you is closed...but soon it will open another, and I may show you that door.

The Website of the guy who created the 300 This is Sparta remix song. He has lots of cool techno music, all free and legal to download.

Just curious, what class did you pick?

When I started for the first time, I picked the Pastamancer. However, at some point late in the game, you do have the option to change the class you play as, so it's not too important of a decision. Just pick whichever one you find funniest, and everything will work out okay.

If you're still looking for stuff, might I suggest Futility Closet (http://www.futilitycloset.com/)? It's an interesting… well, I guess I'll call it a blog, for lack of a better word… that updates three times a day with odd, strange, and interesting tidbits, sometimes historical, sometimes cultural, always interesting (in my opinion). They also have the occasional optical illusion or puzzle. I suggest you check it out.
