Hi everyone!

What cancelled sitcom best describes your life?

Arrested Development maybe lol

What does Vaporwave mean to you?

I somehow never really got into Vaporwave before, but I've been listening to a lot of the links shared in the forum and really liking everything I've heard so far! Excited to keep exploring.

What subgenres are you most into?

Not familiar with the Vaporwave subgenres yet but my other favorite genres would be experimental ambient, ambient techno, trip hop, post punk, modern classical and many others...

How did you find out about this place?

I got a follow from the @agoraroad Twitter account and checked it out, and loved what I found! I've been feeling severely nostalgic for the earlier internet days lately, and so happy to come across a community that feels the same :)

What do you do for fun?

I make music, do some photo/video stuff, and have been getting really into learning 3D modeling & machine learning art over the last year

What cancelled sitcom best describes your life?

Who would define their life this way? Suming oneself by a laugh tracks and one liners. Is it more a question of my sense of humour? Absurdity for me. So that leaves something involving Vic & Bob.

What does Vaporwave mean to you?
A sometimes ironic mourning for canceled futures. Compelling as a combo of nostalgic indulgence and yearning for the promising future portrayed in older media from the 80s and 90s. In the near past the genre imitated the disposablility and obsolescence of this world with a soundcloud playlist of songs you will likely only ever listen to once. Did the future become another disposable product? Considering the multitudes of pessimistic outlooks these days, perhaps so. The music and art of vapourwave made a very valid artistic statement in that regard.

What subgenres are you most into?

Not been listening to much lately. More getting into YMO and Susumu Hirasawa lately. Not sure what the landscape looks like these days.

How did you find out about this place?

Saw an interesting thread linked on the fediverse. It said a lot about the character of this forum and I liked it.

What do you do for fun?

Working out, hikes, wasting time on the internet and some writing.

Introduce yourself: here are some prompts:
->What cancelled sitcom best describes your life?

I like The Office, but it doesn't describe my life. Maybe The IT Crowd as an alternate reality where my life is light and void of painful effort. I don't know many sitcoms. My favorite one is Family Guy.

->What does Vaporwave mean to you?

A mixture of 90's coolness with modern day's nonsense. I dig the aesthetics but not much beyond that.

->What subgenres are you most into?

EBM, 90s Scandinavian Black Metal, Big Band Swing, 60s Rock n Roll, Synthwave and 80s Synthpop.

->How did you find out about this place?

Imageboard lurking.

->What do you do for fun?

Exercise, beer, pot and lurking stuff online.

I don't watch sitcoms, I've seen like 1 or 2 episodes of the office but nothing more.

I usually play games like Borderlands and The Binding of Isaac, I listen to music with my cats and in the past I played a lot the guitar but now I have signs of carpal tunnel so playing and writting in the keyboard for more than 30 minutes is painful.

What cancelled sitcom best describes your life?
I can't think of any that 'describes my life' but my all time favourite is the 2000s British sitcom The IT Crowd

What does Vaporwave mean to you?
I got into Vaporwave about 4~5 years ago. I've always have been interested in electronic music from artists such as Aphex Twin and Daft Punk. I can't remember how I actually found the genre but I think it was though Dan Mason's album 'Miami Virtual 2.0'. Since then ive been hooked!

What subgenres are you most into?
The two that stand out for me are Mallsoft and Future Funk.

How did you find out about this place?
I found it though https://loa2k.neocities.org/.

What do you do for fun?
I play the guitar and repair/make/mod electronics including guitar pedals, tape decks and synthesizers.

Hello guys! I'm glad to be part of this forum finally, I remember stumbling upon it a couple times in the past.
You know, as time goes on you tend to miss these things a lot more. Forums used to be a big thing online, a really big thing. You had pretty large forums about nearly everything.
Nowadays though? Well, the forums I used to browse are ALL dead apart from a few select exceptions. To see one this niche still surviving seems really unbelievable!

I've been into vaporwave since the early parts of it, but I'm mostly just into the "classic" kind of stuff. Haven't been able to get into things like future funk, vapor trap or anything all too much... The appeal to me is those nice samples that are used, especially like Waterfront Dining does it.

I'm from an absolutely tiny country in Europe, gets pretty lonely out there. So I'm looking to ease some of that by delving into nostalgic forum shenanigans.

i'm a bit too late to have sitcoms a part of my cultural heritage

an ambient genre with aesthetics of turn-of-the-century late stage capitalism and thus with commentary on its effects on our day-to-day lives
but i'm not here for vaporwave, particularly (don't you love a secondary?)

Hello Frens!
:LumPog:
What cancelled sitcom best describes your life?
It does not really describe my life but Married With Children is one of the funniest sitcoms I have ever watched. Non-stop roasting of all of the characters.

What does Vaporwave mean to you?
Kind of like this website. There's a subgenre of people that enjoy the 80's, 90's, and 00's aesthetics and like to produce music to fit alongside those vibes. It seems like it fills the void that mainstream music lacks that is the evolution of different genres. Some of the music we have now still sound like they're from 2015 so many people choose to make these songs to remember a time when music was progressively changing in many different ways.

What subgenres are you most into?
I would say that I migrate from one genre to the other. I do not have hatred for any genre to be honest, even if there are some annoying artists in that specific genre. I could bump music from Pop Smoke all the way to Mozart. However, I have switched from liking vast subgenres like stoner/surfer rock to industrial rock to trance music to experimental ambient and other subgenres. At the moment, my favorite subgenres are DnB/Jungle, experimental ambient, house music, and electronica. I tend to favor music from the late 20th century and the 2000's more though.

How did you find out about this place?
I pressed a link on a Telegram group chat filled with cool conspiracies. The first thing I read was the dead internet theory.

What do you do for fun?
I work out at my local fitness center and learn songs on the bass. I go skating to my local mall too and read history books and mangas like Yotsuba&!, Neon Genesis Evangelion, and of other animes that I have watched already. Occasionally, I produce some songs on GarageBand and feel like using them in mini music videos. I also make edits of photos that I take now to fit past time periods and I listed them as NFTs on my OpenSea account.
