It's not supposed to be funny, but a weird micro-dose of neo-nostalgia.

Why isn't there a 14-hour loop of this.

So like Muppet Babies dancing to Scritti Politti except plus five to fifteen years?

Of course I misread it as simpsons vaporware bliss and was expecting something else entirely.

This is basically the "cars are evil" counterargument.

In that the desires of scofflaw, eternally 10-year-old drivers are put above the safety of society at large? ;)

Until you wrote that I always read it as vaporware and could not figure out why you would call your music that.

Totally worth it because now I also know the word hauntology.

I guess this is as good a place as any to share a favorite I found recently: Breeze by Mitch Murder

yes! I just picked up two of HOME's latest albums - Falling Into Place and Odyssey. Not the most incredible music, but a solid example of the genre. For something similar but with a bit more punch, check out The Northern Lights

I still don't know why the national grammar rodeo was at the Sheraton Hotel in Canada.

The hotel in Sacremende was booked for Motherboy.

I first saw an 80's revivalist act, Jacques Lu Cont of Les Rhythmes Digitales, in 1997 - next year it will be 20 years ago. I miss the 80s of the 2000s.

This has been the one stuck in my head since it made the Facebook shitpost rounds a few weeks ago.

As in all things vaporwave, FrankJavCee has you covered.

Thanks for the recommendations everyone! I have gone down a Vaporwave rabbit hole and my extensive YouTube experience suggests that the wonderful Resonance by HOME and the lovely Breeze by Mitch Murder are Synthwave. They are great and I am enjoying them muchly, but they are not slightly disturbing or weird, which are key Vaporwave elements AFAICT.

Here is a great Synthwave mix, my favourite tune being Vector Hold - Incognito.
