    The 1950s-2010s & The Fleeting Bliss That Dominated This Era

    Well, if you lived in a Western nation that is. I've been thinking about this subject a lot recently and I think COVID has marked the definitive downfall of the way of life we take for granted, and from here I believe there is going to be a lot of economic decline, increase in a lack of societal...

    What is your oldest tech-related memory?

    I remember watching a funny video of macaronis dancing the macarena, on a black laptop with both my parents. I just googled it and it should have been sometimes around 1996.What about you?View: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lOF0c5tyR5Y

    Thoughts on living in an IRL cyberpunk dystopia?

    I truly feel like we're living in a cyberpunk dystopia (but like the lesser cool version of it).Where instead of seeing cool aesthetic neon signs and Japanese imagery from the 80s and 90s, we're seeing nothing but political correctness and internet toxicity and vitriol since everything is so...

    Arcade Memories- Post Arcade Stories!

    As you push aside the blacked-out double doors, your eyes adjust to the smoky darkness of the game room. You've arrived at the arcade. Dim black lights illuminate your clothes to an alien neon, and a barrage of pops and clinks washes against your ears. To your left, you see rows of shoddily-kept...

    Vaporwave as a Coping Mechanism

    Greetings Travelers! Hope you enjoy my first thread post :)Most of us can agree Vaporwave brings about a certain degree of nostalgia within us, which I think is a major factor in the appeal of it. Personally, I discovered Vaporwave through Blank Banshee's Eco Zones back in 2014/2015. What...

    I miss the early 2000's!

    There's something about the early 2000's that makes me feel wonderful inside! Anyone miss the times? Mandy Moore, bubblegum pop music, bold neon colors on a white background, weird shapes....love it! Here is an example of what I mean. Also, what is this aesthetic called???? Us Against The World

    Nostalgia for a time that never existed, and nostalgia for a time we didn't live through

    Nostalgia for a time that never existed, or nostalgia for a time that you didn't live through is something I see a lot of people describe as the feeling vaporwave gives them, and a part of why vaporwave appeals to them. It's really interesting to me, and definitely something I personally relate...
