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.

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.

Does Steve Jobs vaporwave exist

How did you find out about this place?

Through a friend.

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.

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!

What canceled sitcom best describes your life?
i don't really watch anything besides anime and movies so i can't really say anything about sitcoms
but i really enjoyed the fresh prince of bel air, meant a lot to me, and like how they quieted the laugh tracks for more serious moments.
more sitcoms should do that. i like when the characters' emotions speak for themselves and aren't played for laughs.


What does Vaporwave mean to you?
to me it's just a chill genre to kinda forget about life to.
listening to it takes me to a place beyond this realm of existence
which is pretty sick.

i also really like retro music, lol


What subgenres are you most into?
in regards to vaporwave, i don't really have much to say here
don't know much about vaporwave genres, i just know it sounds cool

in regards to everything else though,
i listen to a lot of jungle and acid, and old house music
also classic hip hop.
(when i said i liked retro music, i meant it)

How did you find out about this place?

i was browsing a wikia about aesthetic styles,
found the one for neoy2k, and saw this place listed there
decided to check it out, lurk for a bit, decided i like it here
:NekoNatsukiCute:

What do you do for fun?
i compose and produce electronic music
mostly jungle and techno, but i dabble in trance and neurobass sometimes.
i also vj and do music visualizations

Hey everyone. I found this site whilst putting off my university homework. Not-so-coincidentally, I registered while putting off my homework, and now it's happening again. I think it's going to be a recurring theme for me.

What cancelled sitcom best describes your life?
At first I was going to say 'Malcom In The Middle', but I think if you're any middle class kid of any kind from the US, that show is at least somewhat relatable.
So I'm gonna go a bit more out of bounds here. I have no idea what this show is called, and I have no idea if it's still running. But a few years back I saw my mom watching this show featuring a few girls very loudly commentating on something while violently irish dancing. I was a competitive irish dancer when I was younger and I find myself getting overexcited about things I love too easily, so I'm pretty sure this is as close as it'll get. BTW, I never had any desire to go back and find it, but if you recognize this concept let me know because now I'm genuinely curious, lol.

What does Vaporwave mean to you? / What subgenres are you most into?
I'll be honest, the Vaporwave genre in a vacuum isn't really a primary musical interest for me and I'm really out of the loop these days, but I have good memories. I remember listening to Eccojams and of course Lisa Frank 420 years and years and years ago, and from a visual perspective naturally Windows 95 is excellent but I think that mostly stems from my interest in small websites and 'old web' aesthetics. My favorite genres of music in general include vocarock, 2000's and noise-y electronic music, and generally anything funky. That throws a pretty wide net but I'll make up for it with an older recommendation! 彼方此方 by DATEKEN

How did you find out about this place?
I've stumbled in here a few times at this point. It was probably an imageboard? I'm not really an imageboard person anymore and most of the anonymous sites I still post on are more "communities that happen to exist on imageboards" rather than being strictly ib communities... anyway I'm rambling so let's say I found the forums on accident lol

What do you do for fun?
I love building antennas and using my radio, illustration and motion graphics, and of course, despite everything, I still really love using the internet :]

Thanks for having me.

Hi, I'm Snooper. I decided to check this forum out more in depth after visiting it some time ago when someone recommended I add it to my link directory/aggregator called Peelopaalu.

I'm not much into vapourwave music or the aesthetic all that much, but I do have a massive soft spot for small online communities. From what I've seen lurking on here, you guys seem pretty chill and I figured dropping in here to have a look around could be fun. What's the worst that could happen? (inb4doxed).

In my spare time, I like to explore the web for interesting and obscure websites, repair weird old quartz wristwatches from the 1970's with horrific service documentation, and I very occasionally keep a blog about these things when I can be assed to update it. I'm also a huge fan of isometric pixel art, weird art in general and koalas.

Oh, and I also still use a phone with a physical keyboard in [CURRENT YEAR], because I'm insane and was a Blackberry die-hard for 17 years who never learned to type on a touch-screen device. (I currently use a Unihertz Titan, if anyone gives a shit.)
