dear 1998,

the year is 2018 and a combination of william gibson novels and the movie Hackers have more or less come to pass

dear 1998,

anti-capitalist loteks developed a genre of music that sounds like a broken radio in a rotting deadmall and honestly it's pretty cool

@hirojin term bitten from the gibson movie "johnny mnemonic" referring to technologists that primarily use scrap and junk to facilitate technical infrastructure. in this case i suppose i mean the muzak itself as being scrap.

@hirojin like elevator music or music developed specifically for ads. kinda soulless tunes.


@hirojin vaporwave also uses a lot of jazz that definitely isn't soulless so it's not an entirely fair characterization of the genre
