Bill Marchant made a post about something really similar - about nostalgia and eventually music - bands that capture the essence of an era and many of the societal ills, but without diagnosing the cause or proposing a cure.

2018-09-14 17:27:07 UTC  

A similar feeling anyhow - it's hard to articulate.

2018-09-14 17:27:33 UTC  

Greetings fellow hashtag collectors have you tweeted at your local Groyper today?

2018-09-14 17:27:49 UTC  

@Deleted User No, I know exactly what you mean. That very idea had occurred to me as well.

2018-09-14 17:34:05 UTC  

@ChippedStones this an identitarian server bud. You should be studying why we fight instead of tweeting.

2018-09-14 17:36:34 UTC  

@ChippedStones thank you for reminding me.

2018-09-14 17:37:01 UTC  

@Deleted User what bands do you think capture the 90s essence?

2018-09-14 17:37:23 UTC  

i'm going to go with cypress hill

2018-09-14 17:37:40 UTC  

haha ok. not quite what I meant.

2018-09-14 17:37:44 UTC  

lol

2018-09-14 17:38:44 UTC  

I'm talking more of a thumb on the pulse of societies social fabric, than say, "vibe-ing"

2018-09-14 17:39:18 UTC  

so smashmouth?

2018-09-14 17:39:37 UTC  

If I went with 90's vibe it would be "lowrider" and "mambo #5" on repeat for hours on end.

2018-09-14 17:39:54 UTC  

Gross

2018-09-14 17:40:25 UTC  

right, that's surface level though

2018-09-14 17:40:59 UTC  

Fall is my time every year to rewatch all my favorite 90s shows and movies, starting with Twin Peaks ofc

2018-09-14 17:41:09 UTC  

The zeitgeist of the time is probably best expressed years later by bands like Arcade Fire and The National (unironically)

2018-09-14 17:41:52 UTC  

"The Suburbs" is one of the best records ever written in my opinion and is about growing up in the late 80's/early 90's...in the suburbs.

2018-09-14 17:42:56 UTC  

@Deleted User Those are oughts bands, mmmbud 😎

2018-09-14 17:43:02 UTC  

Yes.

2018-09-14 17:43:32 UTC  

i had better not be disappointed by searching this album out...

2018-09-14 17:43:49 UTC  

@missliterallywho Ya know, I never watched Twin Peaks until rather recently, and man, did it take me back...

2018-09-14 17:43:50 UTC  

hmm. its ghey so far.

2018-09-14 17:44:05 UTC  

@Asatru Artist - MD Ima be real with you chief - you told me that you're an Evanescence fan. It's probably not for you.

2018-09-14 17:44:29 UTC  

yeah, i'm not feeling this. 😕

2018-09-14 17:44:34 UTC  

@Bjorn - MD Red Ice did a video on it and its occult symbolism. Fascinating, if you're into that sorta thing.

2018-09-14 17:45:43 UTC  

@missliterallywho Huh. Yeah, I'll have to check it out. I'm not terribly familiar with Lynch's stuff. I tried to watch Lost Highway a few weeks back, but it was too dark for the place I was in at the time, lol. He definitely seems to be on his own wavelength, though.

2018-09-14 17:46:06 UTC  

@Bjorn - MD Essentially the subject matter and general feeling reminds me alot of the previous decade's social climate, and in a way I think there was a conscious effort to purse this direction

2018-09-14 17:46:12 UTC  

OK, back to classical music while I work.

2018-09-14 17:46:44 UTC  

@Asatru Artist - MD The best music to listen to tbh

2018-09-14 17:47:51 UTC  

You had better be listening to patrician impressionists. None of that Baroque GUTTER TRASH.

2018-09-14 17:47:51 UTC  

Nothin' to see here, YouTube viewers. Just a vaguely South Asian man with a "white" woman. It's perfectly normal. What are you, a bigot?

2018-09-14 17:48:40 UTC  

i yearn for the days when i'd sit in the chair with my grandfather and listen to "moonlight serenade"

2018-09-14 17:48:54 UTC  

"OMG, the brown man is so relatable, and happy...i should let my daughter date guys just like him!"

2018-09-14 17:48:54 UTC  

now i just see kids grinding and flossing everywhere <:sad:366743316475281408>

2018-09-14 17:49:43 UTC  

@Deleted User Yeah, I hear ya. Bands and scenes don't rigidly conform to decades. The Pumpkins, for instance, were still vibing circa '97 all the way up until '02/'03.

2018-09-14 17:49:53 UTC  

I don't go to enough clubs to know how them kids are dancing

2018-09-14 17:49:59 UTC  

or any clubs really
