Details: It's a book the owner of the telegram room( started to put together. The book is cut in half and each page are fun quotables by 2 computer systems in nostalgic reflection. One is rugged(Memphis Megahertz) and cyberpunk/spaghetti western in nature whilst the other (Kansas City Fractal) is traditional and emotional Vaporwave tech nostalgia and pre internet nostalgia stylings. We had a lot of fun compiling it and I(Robness) had help from the rest of the community members(mostly my other mod Rat Sarcoma) knock me down and made sure I wasn't falling too far off the mark. Truly a pleasure to make and I tried to make the cover as A E S T H E T I C as possible as ornamentation for future computer/coffee tables in a possible dystopian/utopian environment. Cheers! Here is a free PDF "Shareware" copy of the book to take a preview at....

The Amazon link for the physical copy is here. Thank you! The Amazon product link just launched so it's not fully compiled, the book description is all there and stuff though. I literally just pressed the PUBLISH button so yeah. Cool!

Yeah, someone dying is my best guess. It had to have been either some kind of compulsive thing or maybe it was some kind of journalistic research project along the lines of this:

Almost definitely the first one, though.

EDIT: I guess the Amazon page for that book doesn't really describe it. The author and a few interns and assistants kept comprehensive records of the front page stories in something like 20 major newspapers and the lead stories on all of the major news shows every day for both terms of the Reagan administration, and that book is one of the things that came out of it; it's a fun read and pretty darkly satirical in its way.

Maybe I'm misunderstanding something, but the original Japanese CD version is only $20 on Discogs and from ¥864 ($7.90USD) on Amazon JP

Is the Taiwanese bootleg special in some way?

Blank casettes

Pretty sure I used to see these as a kid in the 2000's from my family. Also, they're prime.

because we're dealing with dinosaur technology, I only use amazon. Buncha shady looking websites out there, but to be hones they're probably just old.

And, here's the cassette labels

Yeah this is pretty much how I remember the Weather Channel when I was a kid.

They used to pair it with elevator music, and it became so popular that they put it on CDs.

Here's an actual broadcast. Very similar to what OP posted. 1980s broadasts were similar as well. I guess a lot of this stuff was a precursor to Vaporwave.

Get something like this and make your own from all the Vaporwave you have...

You might want to check out Babbling Corpse. although it takes itself a bit too seriously at times, it presents a good comparison of vaporwave against modern culture and digs into the history and philosophy of where the culture of vaporwave exists.

There's a very Vapourwavy-feel around the seminal Nineties novel Generation X. The characters in that have a similar nostalgia for the 60s and 70s that never were...

Strangely enough, there isn't a really comprehensive archive for effects processors...or at least if there is, I've never found it. There's archives for synths, there's Modulargrid for modular systems (which includes some stompboxes and 500-series gear), KVR Audio for audio and MIDI software, and so on...but you really don't see an informational clearinghouse for effects in general. It's something I would've thought would be out there, but no...

As books go, though, give this one a shot: Oxford University Press's stuff is usually very well-researched and comprehensive, so this might be right up your alley.

You can read Memphis Megahertz and the Kansas City Fractal if you want to try some vaporwave media outside of music or clips on YouTube. You can also ask your local library to acquire a copy, or find the shareware PDF of the book. It's not hard to find with a little Google searching.

I will say to anyone wanting to pick one up, there are people on eBay who buy this book and then cut out the pages, cheaply frame them, and sell each of the 100 pictures on ebay for $12 bucks a pop. The entire book costs less than $10.

Creative writing on Twitter? GTFO

There was this book I used to have called UNUSELESS or something. I'm curious if people bothered by these transient characters would likewise despise cheeky inventions. "WHY NOT MAKE GREAT PRODUCTS EVERYBODY LOVES????"

u/kryonik · 1 pointr/Vaporwave

I was going to buy the book even though it costs $120 but then I read some reviews and apparently the layout is atrocious; every picture is spread across two pages so the spine ruins them all. Guess I'll spend my money elsewhere.
