Hello everyone! My name is AllNightNippon and am glad to have found this forum!

What does Vaporwave mean to you?
I grew up around the PS1 and Gamecube eras of video games and always loved the ethereal, otherworldly vibes that they gave off, especially Sega systems in particular. Vaporwave brings back that mixed feeling of tranquility, wonder, and mystery I felt wandering around the Gamecube start screen or playing Sonic Adventure.

How did you find out about this place?
Stumbled onto it from a Discord link and found the community to look pretty good.

What do you do for fun?
I love reading manga, and have recently been getting back into video games. I also like to watch movies, anime, tokusatsu, all sorts of things. I draw from time to time too, and have been meaning to do it more.

Hi! I've been lurking here for a long time, but I'm relatively new here as far as actually participating.
Introduce yourself: here are some prompts:

What cancelled sitcom best describes your life? Dog With a Blog, I'd imagine I'm the stupid brother.

What does Vaporwave mean to you? I like how it's made by regular people online instead of big artists. It also sounds really nice, and tends to be very creative.

What subgenres are you most into? I enjoy lofi, vaporwave, breakcore, synthwave, and and drum'n'bass.

How did you find out about this place? I discovered it through r/RedditAlternatives while looking for a place to hang out.

What do you do for fun? I play video games, watch anime, go hiking/mountain biking, and make really bad music.

Nice to meet you all!

Never really watched that much of any sitcom so can't say.

Hey everybody. Got recommended this place by a friend. I was having issues with getting a verification email, but it seems that I'm verified now? Guess it fixed itself.

Heil Honey, I'm Home

What does Vaporwave mean to you?

I like when Vaporwave artists are earnest in their love of 80s/90s/early 2000s culture. I came of age in the 2000s, and it was the last time life truly felt fun, for me at least. It's not a rose-tinted glasses situation I think either, because I can point you to tech, games, music, etc. That was happening back then, and it was moving and vibrant. Tech and games aren't nearly as fun or interesting anymore.

What subgenres are you most into?

Does Steve Jobs vaporwave exist

How did you find out about this place?

Through a friend.

What do you do for fun?

I play Metal Gear Solid V and old GTA a lot. I also just got an Apple Extended Keyboard II.

Introduce yourself: Hi I'm Foxy. I'm new. I'm married and I work in security. I often wonder why straight dudes make so many gay jokes.

What cancelled sitcom best describes your life?
That 70s show. Part Hyde, part Eric, part Kelso, feeling more like Red every day. I like that in Red you see an example of a good dad in his parenting style towards Eric and an example of a bad dad in his parenting style towards Laurie. Throughout the show you see them both turn out how you'd expect.

What does Vaporwave mean to you?
Cool retro aesthetic. Lots of pastels. Sampled beats with cassette warble. Chill vibes.

What subgenres are you most into?
I listen to a lot of different music. I don't really pay attention to sub genres but in terms of vaporwave i really like Eyeliner, blank banshee and Com Truise. I've also been really enjoying Donny Benet lately.

How did you find out about this place?
Linked to a forum post from /x/ tbh.

What do you do for fun?
Work out, play music, drink, go to gigs, nap.

Jeez, a curveball right out the gates. My life's too average to feature in any sitcom, cancelled or otherwise, but a hilairous low-stakes lifestyle straight out of Red Dwarf would be awesome. Despite technically still running, I hardly consider it the same show it once was.

What does Vaporwave mean to you?

Uh oh. Uhhh.... it's one of those genres from my colossal musical history blindspots.

What subgenres are you most into?

Prog/hard/classical rock, as well as a touch of mid-20th century blues. Hard to beat a well-recorded live show from one of the greats. I'm only disappointed I'll never be able to see them myself.

How did you find out about this place?

A link in an article linked in a 4chan post, a real stroke of luck.

What do you do for fun?

I enjoy bushwalking, films & TV, military history and science fiction, though with so many options in our wonderful world I'm sure that list will expand.

The IT Crowd.

What does Vaporwave mean to you?
From a visual standpoint, it's a bridge reuniting the greatness of past civilizations with the brightness of expected futures.

How did you find out about this place?
Parsing results from a search engine lead me to this very place.

What do you do for fun?
I'm into video editing, digital illustration and web programming but I don't mind going for lengthy walks on a day off.

Based vaportaste. If you're into future funk, have you ever tried listening to any 1970s Japanese jazz-fusion? If not (or even if so), check out All of Me by Masayoshi Takanaka! You'll see why people say "future funk isn't a real genre," but aside from the pedantry it's some gorgeous music that you'll enjoy, I'd bet.

You should post some of your art, if you'd feel comfortable!
