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.
A similar feeling anyhow - it's hard to articulate.
Greetings fellow hashtag collectors have you tweeted at your local Groyper today?
@Deleted User No, I know exactly what you mean. That very idea had occurred to me as well.
@ChippedStones this an identitarian server bud. You should be studying why we fight instead of tweeting.
i'm going to go with cypress hill
haha ok. not quite what I meant.
I'm talking more of a thumb on the pulse of societies social fabric, than say, "vibe-ing"
If I went with 90's vibe it would be "lowrider" and "mambo #5" on repeat for hours on end.
right, that's surface level though
Fall is my time every year to rewatch all my favorite 90s shows and movies, starting with Twin Peaks ofc
The zeitgeist of the time is probably best expressed years later by bands like Arcade Fire and The National (unironically)
"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.
i had better not be disappointed by searching this album out...
@missliterallywho Ya know, I never watched Twin Peaks until rather recently, and man, did it take me back...
hmm. its ghey so far.
@Asatru Artist - MD Ima be real with you chief - you told me that you're an Evanescence fan. It's probably not for you.
yeah, i'm not feeling this. 😕
@Bjorn - MD Red Ice did a video on it and its occult symbolism. Fascinating, if you're into that sorta thing.
@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.
@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
OK, back to classical music while I work.
You had better be listening to patrician impressionists. None of that Baroque GUTTER TRASH.
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?
i yearn for the days when i'd sit in the chair with my grandfather and listen to "moonlight serenade"
"OMG, the brown man is so relatable, and happy...i should let my daughter date guys just like him!"
now i just see kids grinding and flossing everywhere <:sad:366743316475281408>
@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.
I don't go to enough clubs to know how them kids are dancing
or any clubs really
