What does Vaporwave mean to you?
I guess I knew about the aesthetic first, I saw it on tumblr years ago and it kept catching my eye. The music itself creates a sense of nostalgia for the past and future we've already lived.

What subgenres are you most into?
I'm mostly into chillstep/chillwave/wave/synthwave/future garage.

How did you find out about this place?
I can't remember exactly what I was searching for but I found out about this place in a DuckDuckGo search result. I've known about it for about a year now and decided to join recently. I love the aesthetic and the vibe here.

What do you do for fun?
I just smoke weed and watch documentaries tbh. I like to play table tennis as well.

:)

Dinosaurs - utter absurdity tinged with occasional moment of pathos​

It represents the aesthetic that my 12 year old self, just discovering the internet on a Mac LCIII with a 28.8 modem, imagined as the future.​

I plead ignorance, I generally throw a YouTube livestream on in the background as I work. With that said, I tend to be extremely musically promiscuous and love the experience of discovering new things.​

Hello everyone :)

What does Vaporwave mean to you?
It's really comforting. Ambient is one of my most listened genres, and vaporwave mixes what I like the most about it with hazy nostalgic images that are really nice to get lost into.
What subgenres are you most into?
I'm not sure about the subgenre names, but I like the kinds that sound like ambient and hypnagogic pop the most.

I like writing, going through crates in record stores, playing videogames and reading about occult and mythologies

Hello, really happy to be here!

What does Vaporwave mean to you?

Tough question, I've been listening to vaporware for several years by now, to the point it has become something incredibly casual. I gotta admit, I love the philosophical interpretations of the genre, especially the idea of hauntology, the nostalgia for lost futures. I love how vaporware deconstructs nostalgia by exaggerating our perceptions of the 80s to early 2000s and its promise of a future that we all know never came to be. But I still find the dream of the visions given in that media as something to be admired, even if we understand they are nothing more than ghosts of promises from the past. I believe there is deep value in having sincere admiration for those false promises of what history was supposed to become, and that worth comes from the recognition of the fakeness in nostalgia, and only when we accept its deconstructions, we can genuinely desire them.

Also, it just gives me a deep sense of melancholy, awe, and a bit of existential fear that I find in no other medium. Deep sadness comes from the sense that there was a past and a future promised at the end of the 20th century that I never got to live.

Besides that. I'm just obsessed with its aesthetics and have tried to incorporate them into my "art" as best as I can.

What subgenres are you most into?

I think I like anything vaporware really. But I really enjoy "classic" heavily sampled vaporware more. After that, Future Funk and Mallsoft.

How did you find out about this place?

4chan x/ ads.

What do you do for fun?

Read and write a lot. Currently working on a fire emblem fanfiction. Sometimes I draw, but I'm still learning.

Hoping to make friends around here!

What cancelled sitcom best describes your life?

Well, I don't watch many sitcoms, to be honest. I'm a 00's kid and grew up watching cartoons on Nickelodean and Cartoon Network. I'm pretty sure I was part of the last generation that actually watched cable TV. I guess if I had to pick, it would be... You know what? I'll say Clarence. I hope that counts. It's a cartoon about an American kid named Clarence doing American kid things with his friends. It perfectly encapsulates what childhood was to me. Going outside, getting dirty, playing with friends until the sunset. As Pan Pizza (perfectly) put it, "The show reeks of summer vacation." It started airing in 2014 and I'd mostly stopped watching TV by then, but I'd say it was a fitting sayonara to TV and that part of my life.

What does Vaporwave mean to you?

Nostalgia. I grew up with a lot of 90s and even 80s stuff, (maybe most 00's kids did though, idk.) By 2008, my family was still using Windows XP on a fat old CRT monitor. We used VHS up until 2011, I believe. I have distinct memories of my Dad recording Godzilla movies on VHS tapes for me whenever they'd air on cable, I suppose that's where my fascination with Japan came from. I was obsessed with Godzilla! For the longest time, we had a broken down 1990/1991 Plymouth Laser Turbo sitting in our driveway. It was red, complete with pop up headlights, a cassette player, and wirey rims. I only got to ride in it a handful of times at most and I only barely remember that. My Dads a guitar player, so 80s and early 90s hair metal were the soundtrack for a good portion of my early days.

What subgenres are you most into?

Future Funk. (I listen to that more than I listen to vaporwave but shhhhh)

How did you find out about this place?

Ads on 4chin's /x/ board. The only thing I knew about Agora Road was the name, and after seeing the ads a few times, I decided to give in and check it out. Given it's /x/, I figured it would just be some schizo site, but I was glad to see that wasn't the case. Comfy place.

What do you do for fun?

I play video games and laze around mostly. I'm kind of at a neet stage in my life. Carrying on the tradition from my Grandpa and my Dad, I also play guitar. Classical and electric; a Godin Multiac Slim, and a modded Squire Stratocaster respectively. I'm a general military buff, especially when it comes to the Cold War. I'm pretty sure I'm the only one in my family who actually enjoys listening to my grandpa talk about his time in Vietnam. Just like him, I will talk your ears off about this subject if you let me. Hell, I'd join the military if I could, but I'm pretty sure I'm no longer eligible. Im not a war monger, though. I think it would best be avoided if at all possible. I like anime, Lain being my favorite, followed closely by Non Non Biyori, for similar reasons to Clarence.

That's about it. One more thing to note that you may have already noticed: I tend to over explain things, usually because I feel like I'm not making any sense otherwise. Im pretty sure it's ADHD or OCD or something. So just uh... set the bar high for me and expect at least a small novel every time I post. I apologize in advance for this.

This is tough! I honestly do not know.
What does Vaporwave mean to you?
A loaded Question for sure.. to me, "Vaporwave" has evolved so much from its conception. The state of the genre is the best it's been, and I love that. Vaporwave to me is more than just an aesthetic and music genre - it's more about the transcription of the emotions of nostalgia, longing for a past that was cultivated in the future, giving people a way to escape into a more "perfect" existence sonically. I don't really believe in "Vaporwave" - it's more than that now. This is THE most versatile and accessible electronic music ever conceived.

Never been much into sitcoms except for maybe the really old ones from the 1960's...

I don't know what Vaporwave is...

I'm not sure... I love Music & more specifically, Prog-Rock... Philosophy... Theory... Anything having to do with Space & Time...

I Was watching a video on YouTube from All Time about the Internet being Dead & he mentioned that I should check on this stuff with Illuminati Pirate & I just had to find this site... By the way, it was a Damn good video that explains a lot of the insanity that's going on in not just America, but around the World & all of it can be traced back to the fact that we are being manipulated by those in charge of the Internet...

Shooting & Working on Guns, Studying History & Studying the Psychology of Psychopaths & Serial Killers... There's a whole lot more that I find fun, but it would be too numerous to list here...
