How could I forget to post a Gay on Pride Month.
he’s wear a jacket.
odd aside time
electronic music as we know it today owes itself to black people and the LGBT community, particularly thanks to the influence that the ball scene had on disco and house in the 70's and 80's as well as the reach of stuff like Chicago house, B'more and Jersey club music, and the sample-heavy nature of hip hop (which ended up having a distinct relationship with the way EDM would do so from the 1990s onward, including the amen break)
sometimes it feels weird to be a black and Not Exactly Cishet(tm) person enmeshed in a scene that's been effectively scrubbed of its relationship with people like me, but knowing we were always part of it is reassuring, especially knowing now that mainstream success need not correspond directly with quality

👌 I never really thought about it so much but you are right
one reason I really admire Daft Punk in addition to their artistry is because they're great at weaving homages and nods to their predecessors very, very clear
practically all of RAM is a big love letter to classic disco, right down to actually including one of its godfathers' life story in there, but even before that they'd sampled tons (Edwin Birdsong's "Cola Bottle Baby" comes to mind) and made a point of working with modern artists to keep that legacy alive (Busta, Kanye, the Weeknd, Romanthony)
yeah that’s really admirable and rad
pretty much every track I didn’t like by them before I just needed some getting used to
I'm starting to think that Iori Yagami would be a better fit for King For Another Day than Geese and Rugal, simply due to him being fucking everywhere these days.
I mean, brooding Orochi man is best isekai protag, so...
Anyone else remember when Internet humor was "LOL WAFFLEZ DEEYURP"
ah yes the cheezburger era, good times
It.....it isn’t anymore?
seriously what’s the difference between “XD waffles tacos!!!” and “😂😂😂😂😂 despacito chungus”
see, it's the principle of the thing, lolcat impact font memes used to be a brand of humour a lot of people would be able to find funny, because of their relatability (moes specifically the acknowledgment that waffles and tacos are generally seen in a positive light because of their common liking by the public), since it stems from age old primal survival instincts to consume resources that everyone can relate to, or even something simple as the widely known endearment of cats to humans
now humour is mostly based off of a web of context and prior knowledge. an understanding of pop culture as a whole. so the ability to "get" said jokes is more complex, like you'd have to know what despacito is first rather than just being able to say "oh yeah i like waffles too"
which is also why (usually older) people who aren't already immersed or caught up with said cultural knowledge have trouble grasping meme fuckery like chungus, cause it hasn't been part of society as long
I like impact font memes because they usually have a legitimate punchline to them but that’s just me
Just because it's more complex doesn't mean it's smarter.
