Well To start off I'm a 28 yo female, married 10 years with 3 kids. I found this forum through learning about the dead internet theory which I found not only interesting and plausible but it also resparked an old idea that has been in the back of my mind for the last 6-7 years or so, which led me to this forum. I plan on posting my thoughts on a few of my own theories later ;) You see I've always been fascinated with the different theories that ive stumbled across in my life, not just for the theories themselves but I also wonder about why the creator of each theory would think the way they do and what kind of events would lead them to these conclusions. I like to think of it almost like researching backwards. I dont always subscribe to the theories I learn about, some are just silly ideas, but always fun to read no matter how crazy or convoluted they get. I find alot of them have small nuances that trigger a response in my mind that really starts me thinking and questioning even the most mundane of topics. I used to talk about these theories with my husband and i really enjoyed the intellectual conversations it got us having. In our teen years we would spend countless nights up discussing what we stumbled upon that day and shared our thoughts on it which would inevitably lead to more questions. We dont really disciss these things like we used to, partially because adult life is busy with alot of tasks that can't be ignored so the time we used to have to really talk together just isnt there anymore. There are other reasons I'll discuss later as well but its basically what led me to this place. I honestly miss these crazy discussions we would have and I feel like I need a place where I can be free to question and theorize the things that grab at my mind sometimes. I love going on deep dives into ideas so if anyone has any really good ones they wanna point me towards please let me know! I also will be adding a few theories that people ive met personally through work and life have come up with and done research on, and ill give my own thoughts on those as well because theres a couple that are really out there lol. sorry for the long intro, but hope to get to know some of you and maybe finally have a place and some people to bounce my ideas off of and see what comes of it.

I've been hanging around here for a while but never managed to introduce myself!

What cancelled sitcom best describes your life?

Perfect Strangers. I'm a Gemini, and some days I feel like Larry - neurotic and overly serious, while other days my inner Balki comes out - spontaneous, fun-loving, but a bit bewildered. No matter what though, I'm always standing tall on the wings of my dreams.

What does Vaporwave mean to you?

A completely unique art form that somehow manages to evoke subconscious and barely conscious old, old memories. Unsettling but comforting at the same time. Ironically but also unironically enjoyable.

What subgenres are you most into?

Broken transmission/signalwave and Mallsoft.

How did you find out about this place?

Through vapor-twitter.

What does Vaporwave mean to you?
A good portion of my childhood was playing video games with vaporwave in the background. For me it always brings back memories of when I was more naive and wonderous .The genre is very close to home for me.
How did you find out about this place?
Probably around the time the "Dead Internet Theory" thread was posted .I didn't initially sign up ,but later I found a post about Blockland. Blockland is the game that my profile picture is from. Blockland is an early 2000's game that does have some vaporwave type shit, so its no wonder there was a thread dedicated to the game here.
What do you do for fun?
That depends on the situation. I mostly play vidya games with my pals , but occasionally ill browse the internet for some schizo tier shit. Who doesn't love schizophrenics?

I dont really like to watch sitcoms, but I guess big band theory, sue me.

What does Vaporwave mean to you?
It mean a lot, the music just makes me feel a mix of melancholy and nostalgia not really recreated by many other genres.

What subgenres are you most into?
UK dubstep, future funk, indie rock, digital hardcore, boom-bap.

How did you find out about this place?
I stumbled upon it while looking for something else and though it was cool.

hi peopel

What cancelled sitcom best describes your life?
Don't really watch anything. A few years ago I might have said Seinfeld, but I want that to really be the opposite of my life now. It's not, though, so I'll say Seinfeld and do my best to change it.

What does Vaporwave mean to you?
Not a lot. Neat aesthetic though.

What subgenres are you most into?
I don't know what anything's called, I'd embarrass myself if I tried naming things. But I usually prefer slow "lo-fi study" kind of stuff.

How did you find out about this place?
@VHSMARONITE told me about it. It's been a gorillion years since I've been on any forums. I think Facebook,etc. made me too full of myself. I got rid of it last year. But talking to no-one on the Internet was probably making me too schizo.

What do you do for fun?
Writing and lifting. Trying to limit the vidya, and especially never buying new games. Right now I'm almost exclusively playing ps2 games I've never played before. Fatal Frame right now.

Hope everyone's having a good one :chikaYo:

Hey guys, I'm FluxRadz, a 22 year old male repping for the coastal elites.
//
Sitcom: Toss up between Freaks and Geeks and Arrested Development, maybe a bit of the IT Crowd too with a pinch of IASIP.
Vaporwave: Honestly, I don't listen to Vaporwave as much as I do other genres, but I like the feelings it can be capable of evoking in me and the aesthetic.
Sub-genres: Future Funk, Mallsoft, Lofi, and Broken Transmission.
Reference: Unironically 4chan.
Fun: I used to play bass, guitar, and drums from ages 13 to 20. Bass was my fave and I was in a couple bands. Nowadays I like to do some coding and pretty much anything tech related. I like spending time with my family and cooking too. Gusic, kino, animu, and vidya as well obviously.
//
I look forward to getting to know all of you on the forum!

Hey party people.

What cancelled sitcom best describes your life?
My childhood was pretty much Roseanne, just with 3 brothers and a smaller house. My adulthood, I don't really know. I haven't seen any sitcoms that I relate to at this moment. I'll just cop out and say my favorite sitcom is Spaced.

What does Vaporwave mean to you?
Interesting music and visuals and nostalgia for the past, but almost like a past that never really happened, just one that we wish did. I've never been deep into vaporwave, but have always found it extremely intriguing for those reasons.

What subgenres are you most into?
Oh jeez with vaporwave isn't there like a million of them? The two that come to mind for me in my limited scope are Mallsoft and Broken Transmission.

How did you find out about this place?
/x/, visited while bored at work to see what the schizos there were up to and saw the "The Best Kept Secret on the Internet" ad. I clicked it and lurked around for a couple days and here we are. Been looking for an old school forum to join for months now, so I'm glad I did.

What do you do for fun?
What most people do, honestly. Read, watch movies/tv, play video games, and write. I work so much these days that I barely get to do any of them though. I've got more books, movies, shows, and writing projects on a "need to get to" list than you can imagine.

Hello friends, it's been awhile! How's the weather there in good old Punxsutawney?

What cancelled sitcom best describes your life?

Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency.

At the time, I thought they just scanned my mind, and released it to the public. Metaphorically speaking, of course. That would be crazy if I literally thought something like that, so I most definately meant metaphorically.

What does Vaporwave mean to you?

A gateway drug perhaps.

Evidence that one is never too old to try new things. Genuinely surprised I like some of it.

What subgenres are you most into?

Does Retro-SynthWave count?

The dizzying sense of vertigo-wave I periodically feel, because, turns out there is in fact "no spoon".


How did you find out about this place?

A super Advanced AI led me here, I just followed the signs.

What do you do for fun?

What is this "Fun" you speak of? No getz fun anymore. No getz any fun at all.
All play and no work, make Jack a very dull boy...

PS: This place, seems like a bit of a chill zone, and I hope to talk with some chill people, even if we agree on nothing at all.
I would appreciate discussing thoughts on reality itself, in a much more serious and considered fashione d.
Still, it is good to larf though!

Frasier comes to mind. A few out of touch people insulated from the real world talking about other people's problems on late night radio. Also: dog. I even live in a city by a lake next to some mountains.

What does Vaporwave mean to you?

Sampling other music isn't new: Vaporwave is the hip-hop of the internet subculture.

What subgenres are you most into?

Not sure I know enough to tell where the lines are between subgenres.

How did you find out about this place?

Someone on this site posted a tongue-in-cheek conspiracy theory about the internet being made up of bots messaging each other, which I found a link to.
