2018-10-04: Search server active for recent posts, rebuilding for older posts. DesuArchive & RBT restored after host's storage had a 2nd SAN hiccup on 9/24. No damage, but posts need import from the contingency scraper. Many thanks to our new tetrarchy of sysadmins who worked to fix this complex service after the loss of the original admin. More info later. Donations would still help in case of image storage failure and we still need a new scraper.
The server is stable, but the scraper is at its final limits due to crippling resource use and cloudflare limits, so /gif/ and /wsg/ images are paused. Let's solve this: help build a new scraper. More details here.
Ghostposting is under extreme vetting by new moderators to mitigate spam. Crackspamming or responding to any is a bannable offense.

Why is Byzantine era art so utterly hideous compared to earlier Roman and Greek art?

Why is it so completely lacking in beauty and power? Why is Christian inspired art so utterly grotesque?

Narcos: Mexico TV Series

Anybody watching this? How accurate is it?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Narcos:_Mexico

Narcos: Mexico is an American crime drama web television series created and produced by Carlo Bernard and Doug Miro. Originally intended to be the fourth season of the Netflix original series Narcos, it was ultimately developed as a companion series focusing on the illegal drug trade in Mexico, whereas the parent series centered on the illegal drug trade in Colombia. The series was released on November 16, 2018 on Netflix.

Narcos: Mexico explores the origins of the modern drug war by going back to a time when the Mexican trafficking world was a loose and disorganized confederation of independent growers and dealers. The series charts the rise of the Guadalajara Cartel in the 1980s as Félix Gallardo (Diego Luna) takes the helm, unifying traffickers in order to build an empire. When DEA agent Kiki Camarena (Michael Peña) moves his wife and young son from California to Guadalajara to take on a new post, he quickly learns that his assignment will be more challenging than he ever could have imagined. As Kiki garners intelligence on Félix and becomes more entangled in his mission, a tragic chain of events unfold, affecting the drug trade and the war against it for years to come.

Albigensian Crusade

Did a single military campaign more destructive than the Albigensian Crusade ever take place in medieval Europe? It is estimated that as many as 1,000,000 people died during what is sometimes termed a genocide of the Cathars by some historians.

Since this board is constantly flooded with Holocaust threads more than the Mississippi River, I thought I'd mix things up a bit with one about the "forgotten" Holocaust.

I guess just go ahead and post anything about Nazi Germany's persecution of the Romani and Sinti peoples before and during WWII. Relevant legislation, written accounts, diaries, interviews, films and books, specific actions and massacres, perpetrators, noteworthy victims and survivors. Its' up to you.

Please keep that shit on /pol/ or in Jewish Holocaust threads at least. I would just like to see one decent thread on this subject.
