    The "vaporwave" of nowadays is a sad joke, a vapid circlejerk. It is a sign that does not signify anything but itself, as it festers in its own tropes and stereotypes, and becomes commodified and subculturalized, assimilated into the same machine it was trying to break off of. Vaporwave died a long time ago, when it stopped being mysterious and immersive, when its audience started being pandered to.

    Vaporwave died and with it died the last movement of honest, true art.

      But by holding on to it even though it's gone, you're still being true to it and keeping it alive. Just like it's "metal" to worship Satan or it's "punk" to wear denim jackets, it's "vaporwave" to cling to dead aesthetics long after they're culturally relevant.

      Man, I never saw it as some sort of high-brow social commentary. It just dredged up vague memories of being a kid dragged around to malls, department stores, doctors offices, and other public spaces where muzac would be played on shitty burnt out speakers in the background.

      Same goes for retrowave and outrun, though that was all the 80s action movies on VHS cassette. Both seem to be meant to recapture those sounds and memories but as time passes both genres increasingly seem to be parodying themselves, by artists either distancing themselves from it to 'grow', or were too young to have experienced a world without youtube, much less without internet. Vapor 95 seems more a manifestation of that same detachment endemic to these genres that kicked off around the start of the decade - no memory, just aping a look.

      Both genres seem stale, but at the same time, I'm looking for the next thing and it seems like trap music has irreparably turned all modern music into some rap/trap amalgam. Even fucking country music is rapping now. I tried watching those "What are you listening to" compilations and felt like a certain astronaut held at gunpoint on the moon.

        The thing is, it wasnt any sort of high-brow social commentary, quite the opposite. What vaporwave did was essentially take the same reality-distorting mechanisms that advertisements and pop culture use to manipulate, and reincorporate them into artistic production. Vaporwave is meant to fulfill the broken promises that media from the 80s 90s and 00s made to us, it is meant to bring to life an imaginary future of pure utopian hedonistic consumerism that was always promised to us by advertisement but never came, a future that is still being promised to us but we now know that it will never come. It wasn't high-brow at all, it was the ultimate escapism, where all the ugly parts of the actual future that became true and that we live in now are not present, and instead there is this almost mystical hyperreal world of pre-postmodern innocence and commercial bliss, where Coca Cola really CAN solve the worlds problems. This is why people describe vaporwave as leaving them with a strange, paradoxical sense of faux nostalgia, a real tangible feeling of nostalgia for something that never happened. And this is also why a big part of the audience for vaporwave are zoomers and relatively young people who were not even alive or consciouss in the time periods that vaporwave takes is aesthetic inspiration from, because this was not a movement of just surface-level revivalist nostalgia like retrowave and outrun, where tropes are blatantly replicated without nuance, but of faux nostalgia, where a whole new thing is created, a completely imaginary, ridiculous future that was never a part of actual reality, but is nonetheless felt as real.

          >nostalgia for something that never happened

          It's not about nostalgia for things that never happened. It's a feeling of wallowing in the safety of the memory of a stable past.

          Vapor just like other retro genres is another sophisticated form of escapism that are so common in the post 2008 world of economic gloom and social decay.

          These genres project this screen of faux optimism, that is in stark contrast with the bleak reality we live in. It's a device you can connect yourself to if you want to get in a blissful state, a world of old tech and video games from your childhood. The bliss of living in the virtual space of your own past, your own childhood, in the reversion of your own causality.

            McDonalds and Coca Cola are just simple examples, what im refering to is the way consumerism implies through advertising that it can solve all your problems, and seems to portray this perfect ideal world in every piece of media or ad, that is of course not real. Just look at the way old comercials from the 80s and 90s are shot, they are always almost ridiculously utopian.

      It was always a joke. The OG vaporwave album wasn't even real. It was "onager-onager", and a few anons had just lazily shooped a bird onto a target pattern background so they could tease newfags trying to get into the next big music movement. It was just a variation on the Godspeed you! black emperor "lost album" prank until Floral Shoppe was released. Then some folks retroactively applied the tag to people like james ferraro and the like, and suddenly it was a legitimate movement and we were supposed to believe everybody was consciously pulling from Adorno or Baudrillard as part of some highbrow critique of capitalism and nostalgia. It was none of those things. Journalists and Tumblr kids were just over eager to create a new genre/movement of music after seeing what happened with Witch House.

        And yes, it was always a joke, but that does not remove any of its validity. The joke used to be funny. It used to work, because it had something unexpected to say about the reality we live in. Vaporwave undoubtedly has always relied heavily on irony, and through irony it exposed the inherent ridiculousness of consumerist culture. The problem is, it became what it was making fun of, it became part of consumerist culture, and so the joke is not funny anymore, it doesnt work.
        Also, of course vaporwave artists originally where not consciously pulling from Baudrillard or any sort of concrete philosophy when they were making vaporwave albums, they were simply making shit to have fun, to have a bit of a respite from dealing with actual reality. But they did inadvertently prove Baudrillard true, in that they exposed the nature of the consumerist hyperreality.
        Ferraro and OPN where nerds, the only ones originally preocupied with this philosophical media analysis, but while they laid the conceptual groundwork for vaporwave to come, the movement itself did not come from them, but from the thousands of people that connected with the genre because it seemed cool and prolonged its narrative

          > it was always a joke, but that does not remove any of its validity

          It kinda does. It was called vaporwave because it literally didn't exist. The joke was that it was cancelled before released or otherwise lost to time, and thus existed only as an idea in a manner similar to "vaporWARE". Making it real ruined the joke, you dumb normalfag, because it was a joke made at the expense of the kind of dipshits that took witch house seriously. The whole point was "don't fucking talk about /b/ (/mu/) and stop trying to make every meme from LULZ into a real life phenomenon.". We hated fags like you for the same reason we hated le ebin meme face shirts people were putting out in the 2010's.

            No, you dont get the joke you dumb fuck. Yes, making it real ruined the joke, that is precisely what im saying. But the joke was not that it was making fun of witch house if you think that was what people where doing when creating vaporwave you are completely retarded, no one ever gave a fuck about witch house which is why it was DOA. Vaporwave did not originate nor was it ever widespread through LULZ. LULZ did not coin the term vaporwave, Will Burnett from Internet Club coined the term. LULZ had very little influence on the spread of vaporwave. Vaporwave was mostly spread and evolved through tumblr and bandcamp. This website is pathetic, it has never done anything other than get high off their own farts and create inhouse memes that once in a while leak into the mainstream. You are probably one of those insufferable homosexuals who thinks LULZ got trump elected

I have a couple of their products, they look fine, but by god they are so fucking expensive. Most shirts are around 40 dollars, sweatshirts about $60-$80, and their "jackets" over 100. I bought one of their bomber jackets, and the thing was it wasnt even a jacket, it was basically a sweatshirt made to look like a jacket, what a fucking joke. Another thing is, they paid christtt to do a set for a promotional show, and they paid him in instore credit, which he said was enough to buy some pins and stickers LOL

    Vaporwave was never a critique of capitalism, that's just something people said searching for meaning.

    I think that Vaporwave as a genre was just the product of people liking spaced out TV nostalgia. If you were going to criticize it, then why would you replicate it so much.

    Also I bought one of their shirts, they took months too long and when I complained and wanted a refund they didn't respond to my email and instead forced me to take the product. It's a cool design so I wear it, but if you buy from these people just know they are unprofessional.
