I uninstalled yy like a year ago after installing it to play video games with some Chinese netfriends (for anyone who doesn't know it's basically Chinese discord). But I still get random notices and shit from it and it's basically impossible to google anything about this program in English.

getting in shape and making all the weeaboo powerbottom anime soypussies wet is much better motivation than extending my shitty tenure on this shitty planet by a few more years tbh

imagine being the same retarded NEET weeaboo floorshitter you are RIGHT NOW except you're fit and muscular as fuck, all the cute boys who use ':3' as punctuation would be lining up around the fucking block for the chance to suck your dick and bask in your patrician taste in anime

Congratulations! How have you been studying? I'm at the point where I can struggle through most texts with the help of a dictionary but I feel like I don't retain much with that method.

925 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8924 01:17

>>924 17 years on and off, including 4 years of high school classes (so more time was spent on conversation than in, say, a college elective sequence, but the material didn't get as advanced). Someone who gets past that level and then really applies themselves (especially with modern learning materials) most likely would get to my level in a fraction of the time. My interests were and are too divided for it to have gone any other way; and I took a bit of a break for the past 5 years while I finished off my long overdue degree and then got stuck on an interminable job hunt... but that'd make a long story longer.

I did translations of nerd shit for a while up to that point, but it was frustrating because I was not building appreciable speed nor learning the language beyond the materials I was translating. Aside from the problem of being buried contextlessly in a dictionary, you end up spending lots of time on the task trying to come up with the phrasing you want in the target language if you really want to do it faithfully, which I did (so with that in mind, my words-per-day pace was surprisingly comparable to a professional despite my lower level of understanding).

There are a lot of differing opinions out there about how to acquire Japanese reading skills. None of them aside from "read a shitload of stuff you're interested in, re-read if you didn't understand, and remember it" really sounds right to me (I've heard it said that Frederick Douglass would circle words he didn't know and get back to them later). Naturally, the kanji present a significant obstacle; people make some ado about how the most common ones make up >90% of usage, but downplay that the rarer ones tend to be distinctive words that comprise the important parts of text: someone's name, a scientific or philosophical phenomenon, exactly what and how someone did something to someone else, etc. Like, you're not going to find an interesting story consisting mostly of "Where is the airport?" "This weekend will be cold and rainy" conversational fluff.

I recently started using Anki to shore up some grammatical vocab. Most people use it for studying kanji, but I've got like 1300 down reasonably solid (reading-wise) from just knowing a few thousand words by sight, so I'm putting that off for now. I expect to be capable of passing JLPT N1 someday, but I wouldn't feel that good at it even then.

organizing japanese music is a huge pain in the ass

let's see, did that album i just downladed get listed under 'c' for 'chie'? no, is it under 'f' for 'fukami'? hmm, still no, maybe it's under '深'? no wait it was under '譁�蟄怜喧縺�' because the fucking chink who uploaded it mojibake'd everything

936 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8926 13:23

>>935 Do you use iTunes? You can set an invisible "Sort Artist" different from the "Artist" field, so for instance it'll show 桃箱 but the Sort Artist is "momo". So can just type momo with the window open and it'll go straight to it. Or, sometimes if I have an anime OP single by one unique artist, the ED single by another, then all the character songs with the CVs listed for the Artist, I'll sort them all as the anime name to keep them all together.

938 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8926 13:52

I romanize artist names and autistically re-title songs for that exact reason. It is a pain in the ass and probably not worth it, but I do it anyway.

939 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8926 18:11

Is there a script to turn kanji and katakana into romaji automagically? I use beets to organize my library and I presume you can extend it through a plugin to add the sort artist tag automatically, which is not a bad idea at all.

940 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8926 21:13

Kana should be fine and there seem to be plenty of scripts for that online (you could even probably copy/paste the table from wikipedia into a python script and add some commas to make your own), but I couldn't quickly find any for kanji so you'd have to call out to google translate or something and give a confirmation prompt for each translation, because they will all be wrong. Maybe there's a kanji->kana script designed for learners that you can use in 2-step translation

941 Name: (*゚ー゚) : 1993-09-8926 22:15

Unfortunately kanji->kana conversion is non-trivial so you need a "morphological analyzer" such as Mecab, Kakasi, or Stakk, and none of them are perfect. It doesn't help that song titles are likely to have kanji with weird readings. What all this really means, >>939, is that you should just stick with today's special.

I miss the old youtube recommendation algorithm that would recommend obscure, thematically unrelated videos. It was a great way to discover strange videos and you could spend a lot of time going down the rabbit hole.

Now the recommendation algorithm is too refined and personalized. There's a lot less variety in the recommendations and they all tend to fit inside a categorical bubble of (actually related videos+your "interests"). The only "surprises" that show up in the recommendations now are shitty videos specifically designed to rank high on the recommendation algorithm using various tricks.
