What canceled sitcom best describes your life?

Marchall Erikson's story line in How I met Your Mother. Been forever with the same girl + I share the same environmental worries and worry about the rapidly closing window of opportunities to tackle global issues.

What does Vaporwave mean to you?

I discovered vaporwave the moment I as an environmentalist gave up on the " future that was promised". I didn't know of it when I first felt machintosh Plus - リサフランク420 / 現代のコンピュー, but Fisher's stolen futures argument is what made the emotional click for me. Vaporwave is a glorious critique / critical glorification of the time I grew up in. It reminds me of the naive hope we all had on the brink of a new millennium, at the end of history. A future full of possibilities.
Vaporwave helps me understand and emotionally reconnect with that time.
On the other hand I'm here for the wonderfully fresh music. not since I first discovered the mashup community in the early 00's and, to a lesser extent, since my girlfriend discovered Nightcore I have been pleasantly surprised by the newness of music. This is what it must feel like to be around when rock'n'roll was invented.

What subgenres are you most into?

the classics get regular play (eco virtual, saint pepsi, 2814, Floral Shoppe, etc). Currently I'm into whatever CatsystemCorp (猫 シ Corp.) puts out.
recently got some compilations with "summer vapors" of 2018 which were promising.
I don't listen to vaporwave exclusively (well, at least 80% is vaporwave these days though!). If there is one thing I'd like to see vaporified (vaporwaved? vaporred?) it is Big Beat, a short-lived genre from the late 90's. Think Chemical Brothers, Fatboy Slim, propellerheads, the wiseguys, the entire matrix soundtrack, the tomb raider movie soundtrack, etc. If there are already vaporwave releases with Big Beats, please let me know!

How did you find out about this place?

the Vaporwave FB group.

What do you do for fun?

play boardgames (there is an emerging subculture of fantastic, well-developed games on par with the video-game industry, absolutely worthwhile to check out if you detested Monopoly as a kid like I did :) )

in terms of a tv show I guess I could say something like twin peaks. Nobody really understands it but there are always people who try to. Also sometimes i'm quite popular and other times everybody's forgotten about me

What does Vaporwave mean to you?

Lovely community of people making art and music that has a statement towards the commercialization of music and art in general. Actually has meaning, as opposed to lots of the mindless drivel that is considered "indie" or "punk" nowadays that you would find on spotify or vevo but indeed serves as a facade for a mass media money making trend machine. Vaporwave keeps me sane in this incredibly fake and shallow time period we're living through. Many people consider vaporwave to be saying something about 80's consumer culture, but I personally think it has alot more to do with this decade more than that one 100%. We are living in the mass consumer culture where we buy incredibly expensive intricate personal devices and clothes that require hours of labour to make and then throw them away once they become too "slow" or once the clothes become unstylish. Evil times.

Also, as 80's music did, I think vaporwave signals a future time of prosperity that could still be for some of us, i.e. the ones who decide to give back to their community, the ones who don't feel like they need to be a part of every passing trend, the ones who ignore all of the bs information out there.... I could go on and on.

What subgenres are you most into?

I like new age themed vaporwave alot. On a broader note I love the 80s revival coming out on bandcamp. I love 80s bands and I think lots of 80's MTV era pop music still sounds futuristic. It spawned the media monster that exists now but it was almost worth it.

How did you find out about this place?

Vaporwave >redditcostanzayeahrightsmirk. I just recently came back to >redditcostanzayeahrightsmirk and was browsing. Really liked the theme and the aesthetic of this forum so I made an account.

What do you do for fun?

Sometimes I play new video games but I play lots more old video games. Halo Combat Evolved is my favourite of all time, in terms of the story, the design aesthetic, the music (best game soundtrack period... EVER....) It's very important to me. I've played it through too many times to count. Maybe I'll make a halo themed vaporwave album lol.

Also a starwars multiplayer mod called movie battles II. I play it for hours lol!

I play guitar, bass, drums etc and have always loved music no matter the genre. I listen to a ton of music and recently have deleted apple music. I now exclusively download and listen to music off bandcamp on my old ipod classic that I've put an open source OS on. I believe in paying the community back. Having less selection also makes me connect more with the music I do have. If I ever want a classic album from previous decades, there's a record store near me with a massive cd collection.

I'm also planning to sell any electronic devices that I cannot take apart and fix myself and replace them with electronics I can keep and maintain for years... such as my ipod classic. I'm hoping it will last forever. Fight the good fight against planned obsolescence!! 8)

Howdy! Adeptus Minor here..

A small tape label based in Los Angeles CA.

-I'm gonna switch it up and give you an old video game instead..
Skullmonkeys on the PS1. That game was everything. Good times were had!

-Vaporwave hits me in all the right spots. Mostly in it's ability to stand the test of time. In a short period it has spawned countless numbers of sub-genres. Some that seem so radically different from one another yet all fit nicely under the umbrella.

-I love me some classic vaporwave, who doesn't? Also listening to as much Vapor-Hop as I can find. If anyone can share, please do! And of course the staples.. late night lo-fi, future funk, mallsoft etc..

Got new music to release? Want to do a cassette run? We are looking for new artists so we can grow! Send me a PM! Let's chat!

What cancelled sitcom best describes your life?

Will & Grace? I...was never really one for sitcoms....



What does Vaporwave mean to you?

making trash, not war, with my peers. Showing people after me what they missed out on, and what a joy it was to grow up in such a bizarre time as the 90s.


What subgenres are you most into?

I think a better question is what I'm not into - I like this movement, and I want to give everything a chance, even if that means not necessarily liking it the first go around, I'll listen again.

I will say witch house got me into vaporwave :)

How did you find out about this place?

Through a facebook group with memebers that I worked on a compilation album.


What do you do for fun?

Eat food, make bad memes and visuals, and try to make music. I also try to be the nicest person I can be.

My life is way too dull to be a sitcom, but I have a strong nostalgic attachment to Sabrina the Teenage Witch.

It's simultaneously a means of escape and a path to deeper self reflection.

I'll listen to anything, but t e l e p a t h テレパシー能力者 is my favorite artist. Besides the main genre, I also like vaportrap, city pop, lo fi hip hop, and future funk.

Howdy y'all. I'm Zenith. Maybe you've heard of me, maybe you haven't xD. I make produce Synthwave, Late Night Lo Fi, and mostly Vaporwave.
I'm excited to start my journey on Agora Road's Macintosh. I hope to make some great conversations and friends here.

If you are interested in listening to my music, here is a link to my bandcamp: www.dabzenith.bandcamp.com

What cancelled sitcom best describes your life?
Not entirely sure... If I had to take a wild guess, I would probably say M.A.S.H. I think it has something to do with my love for anything 80s. I also have a fondness for military/war shows and movies.

What does Vaporwave mean to you?
To be completely honest, it means quite a lot, and most likely too much for you to read, but I'll keep it simple. I learned about Vaporwave about 2 years ago after a bad break up. I was crushed and thought I was useless. After listening to Vaporwave for a bit, I found an interest in producing it, and it helped me keep my mind off my troubles. I also love doing it :) In many ways, Vaporwave helped me. You could say Vaporwave means a whole lot to me.

What subgenres are you most into?
I love Vaporsynth and Late Night Lo Fi. (to produce), but if I am listening to someone else's work, I love Future Funk and classic Vaporwave. My favorite artists are Flamingosis, waterfront dining, and US Golf 95.

How did you find out about this place?
I was invited by someone via my Bandcamp. (Thank you :)

What do you do for fun?
I love to listen to vaporwave, (obviously) go fishing, hang with friends, and chat with people!
