Damn I was gonna reply to this when I got home... 4 days ago...

Anyway! I dont really listen to synthpop all that often but when I do I go on youtube and tune in the GTA Vice City Flash FM Radio! it is mixed with pop Rock aswell but to me it never gets old to me. But on of the song that does stand out to me is Philip Oakey & Giorgio Moroder - Together in Electric Dreams

    I am learning chinese and japanese (I know weird combination) and they love to overcomplicate their language by using the same symbols with diferrent meanings

    Also, it's getting late where I am, but I recommend if you are interested in poetry, try (in lovely Spanish of course) Pablo Neruda, Federico Garcia Lorca, Octavio Paz, and if you really want to see how far a poet can twist a language, try Cesar Vallejo, he's my favorite poet of all time

    Woah, you are brave but wise to learn those languages, imo China will become much more influential in global politics!

    Yeah but tbh I prefer japanese 100x times, their way of speaking, their culture, and overrall their traditions are a direct magnet for my attention, I do like what I can get a hang on with japanese though.

    Japanese culture AND literature is so amazing. Chinese culture is just so different, and VERY OLD (in a good way)

    I'd like to be fluent in Japanese so I could one day read Yukio Mishima in his original

    Totally! What I love is the value they give to honor, harakiri for example is what I consider to be a honorable death
