Okay, lets put some text on this page. I had some discussions about vaporwave IRL and basically theres always the same questions.
1: Do you like vaporwave unironically?.
Yes, i admin this page almost daily, i can’t go with the “its irony” excuse anymore.
2: But what the heck does the vaporwave “mean” to you?.
Look at the picture i uploaded ( from , i don’t know if she has a tumblr http://weheartit.com/spacefeud). For me thats the most vapey thing i found. Why?.
Fiji is a water brand that assures you that his water is clean, fresh, healthy, natural and even virgin as long as only them can harvest it. Their brand, their logo, tell you that if you drink it, you will be healthier, cleaner, and live longer.
Then you put it on fucking cigarettes, that we all know, even if we smoke, that they are slowly killing you and intoxicating your body, making it unhealthy, dirty.
Its as simple as that, taking modern capitalism and his symbols, and pointing their internal contradictions. Satire trough false glorification.
So, yeah, i buy the “vaporwave is anti-capitalist” thing.
3: Then why all the sadboys things in vaporart? are Yung Lean and all those people “vaporwave”?.
Obviously not, but i think its existence is important to vaporwave message. Sadboys come from some of the richest first world countries, they shouldn’t have any reason to be sad at all, but they do.
That is something that vaporwave tries to convey, how a system that is supposed to make their customers feel relaxed and happy, its making a lot of the new generations in the first world, feeling desperate, sad, lonely and like they are living pointless lives, and feel nostalgia about the past. A past that never existed either.
Also they kind of embody the “YOLO” lifestyle even if they have to look like the don’t enjoy it.
TL,DR: I take vaporwave srsly pls don’t laugh at me.
