I did something like this today in my broadcasting class where I added the "Coming soon to own on video and DVD" audio sample to the end of a trailer that I made for the class. pure nostalgia made me add it.

Morpheus X says:

I think all the Wikipedia descriptions of vaporwave being a serious critique on consumer culture are more or less post-hoc attributions by people trying to make it into more than it actually is. I think vaporwave is an earnest, salacious expression of the notalgia of a generation raised on TV and dial up Internet.

Joji II says:

Dead or not, the debate will rage on. Either way I still enjoy Vaporwave a lot.

Jeremy Abbott says:

Before I watched this video, and was exposed to more than just Macintosh Plus, I thought that vaporwave was just a neat sounding little style. Listening to that Kmart song in the opening really just gave me an amazing experience I never had before with music. I always loved songs that sampled other things, like the Sonic Rush soundtrack. But the strange mix of thoughts and feelings this music makes me feel is incredible. I can see why people don't like vaporwave, especially when all they see is the visual, or they only hear a track that doesn't resonate with them, but when you find that one track, it is amazing.

You earned a sub

Combustible Lemon says:

"What if elevator music was actually good?"

A: Vaporwave

Batuhan says:

It does not embrace capitalism, it uses its elements to criticize the system and its absurdity.

Stagnant Lasagna says:

you suck at making vaporwave

Drunk Not I Am says:

Song started off good, but then it failed with the drumline and over stoppage. It was better when it started out smooth.
