Okay here we go;

What cancelled sitcom best describes your life?

Not too sure.

What does Vaporwave mean to you?

Vaporwave is something thats been around me for so long, for me its my childhood and also now. Its critiques of the modern world really appeal to me on maybe a bit of a deeper level then an aeshetic should, but still. It's also so relaxing and calming to me, its an escapists dream.

What subgenres are you most into?

Probably Faux-Utopian (It's almost a blend of vaporwave and cyberpunk and I love it), however Windows 96 is one of my favourites as of recent and thats pretty opposed, other then that post-internet is good.

How did you find out about this place?

Was scrolling through a wiki page trying to find the name of a son and the link was there so I was curious.

What do you do for fun?

Read, listen to music, play games the basic stuff. But languages are also one of my favourite things to learn about / do.

Hi there lol wazzup !!! Im a pretty boring guy who soends there spare time either watching anime and/or getting drunk.:kannaSippyn:

What cancelled sitcom best describes your life?

Honetly not sure, dont really watch or have watch sitcoms so its hard to say. Ives watched friends and i have friends so there is that


What does Vaporwave mean to you?

Vaporwave for me is music to clear my head, it reminds me of stars above, dreaming about traveling thru space, memories to cherish and to always move forward in life. Sounds cheesey i know but those are the things that come in mind.


What subgenres are you most into?

Hmmm i guess its a music question. So right now I have been listeining to lots of the orb (chill/electronica) and random hardcore edm/electronic) but my go to classics would be breakcore, grunge (not just Nirvana!), whatever genre Beach Bunny is in and happy hardcore (cringe, I know)
But for vaporwave, definitely future funk.


How did you find out about this place?

I think it was from /hap/ about dead internet.


What do you do for fun?

Drive around and go on dates :D

hello! i'm sadness, an internet nomad. i run a website over at https://sadgrl.online/ and am trying to help make the internet suck a little less.

What does Vaporwave mean to you? - It makes me feel warm and comfy and nostalgic, that deadmall vibe.

How did you find out about this place? - I've seen it around on various links pages but I decided to stop in and see what it's like. I'm usually more of the lurker type.

What do you do for fun? - Build websites, write, and serve the people.

Welcome! I've been to your site a few times. Really reminds me of the old days. Some great articles!

What cancelled sitcom best describes your life?
I don't/haven't really watched a lot of sitcoms, especially any that I relate to. I do like some of the funnier mainstream ones like IT Crowd, the Office, and Parks and Rec.

What does Vaporwave mean to you?
Good, largely out-of-the-mainstream music/aesthetic. I enjoy the surrealist aspect; I try not to give in too much to the sway of nostalgia, but I have the opinion that certain time periods that vaporwave...enshrines (?) were indeed much better times to be on the web than currently. It was a bit before my time, but things such as current web bloat, globohomo artstyles, and social media updoot mentality inform my opinion here as well as the more unique, varied, personal, and colorful websites that I've seen when searching for old-web type websites.....crap I'm on a tangent. That happens a lot with me.
My favorite type of music has always been classical music; I was unable to find a lot of vaporwave online when I was getting into it about a year or two ago (inexperienced, I guess). Vaporwave and classical music are both relaxing to me; classical music is very beautiful to me & vaporwave has a more "dreamy" appeal.

What subgenres are you most into?
From my little exposure to it (it's hard to find copious amounts of vaporwave on Youtube without knowing where/how to look), I like mallsoft and synth stuff, but also have had good experience with slush wave.

How did you find out about this place?
4chan. I escaped (>inb4 you can never leave) but go back once a month or so, usually to /g/. I was asking a question, and perused around for a couple minutes. Someone suggested this in a thread about old-web type forums, something I like but that is very hard to find. Social media is gar-baggio and 4chan can get a little too.. chaotic, but these types of forums are nice. I'm also trying to dip my toes into IRC, at the moment.

What do you do for fun?
Big movie enjoyer, but try not to watch too much. I have started a homeserver recently and I really like working with Linux, so that usually keeps me more occupied than I have time for.

Wish I watched enough sitcoms to answer this! But my favorite one was always Home Improvement.

What does Vaporwave mean to you?
Nostalgia. A lot of it is for times I never even experienced, but I don't know another word to describe it.

What subgenres are you most into?
I love futurefunk!

How did you find out about this place?
A guestbook signature! (Thank you to whoever linked back to me :`) I did the same a while back! I'm only just now posting tho)

What do you do for fun?
I watch a lot of anime/read manga/listen to music.(lame lol) but I also like to draw and browse the web! My favorite sites are forums and personal sites or blogs like on neocities.
I don't leave the house a lot but I like to go to thrift stores and buy vhs tapes and bootleg anime. Lately I've been finding a lot of joseph lai stuff and it's hilarious <3

hi everyone! i'm alexandra. nice to meet all of you. :)

what does Vaporwave mean to you? to me, it's an ironic take on consumer capitalism that builds on nostalgia to create something new. i'm a casual fan of vaporwave as an aesthetic and music genre, but i'm moreso living it through creating "web 1.0" websites focusing on personal interests and self-expression, encouraging unplugging from corporate media (including social media), and decentralizing the internet.

how did you find out about this place? the yesterweb ring!

what do you do for fun? code, travel, learn about history, metaphysics and practical ethics, write essays

I consider most types of cartoons to be sitcoms, so probably Chowder.

What does Vaporwave mean to you?

I think that it is a kind of icon how most media and content is in the post-internet world. Referential permutations without shame.

What subgenres are you most into?

All about my cloudrap and pop punk/easycore.

How did you find out about this place?

I unironically can't remember and it was just today lol. I think a thread showed up while I was looking for a CSS guide.

What do you do for fun?

I'm in a kind of migration period from being a stagnant vidyagamer and general consumer. I've been fiddling around with digital art and making video stuff. It's not very good yet but it is fun. Building my own domain has been part of these endeavors.
