I like to think of the newer "waves" as themes rather than genres. Themes grant you permission to use samples of related audio and video. The OG vaporwave though, that really takes more effort in the craft I feel.

Flamingosis' latest album Flight Fantastic has been such a groovy trip

Just found out that DJ Krush has a new album this year!

I always see the "email" and "print" options for each Hubski post, but has anyone actually done that?

I wonder if this would end up decoupling the citizens' behavior from their moral compasses

Neat, I've been dabbling in music production for a while now, mostly working in Ableton. Well I haven't really done much recently, being a uni student busy with assignments :p

Ooh this style looks neat. I tweaked that ".box:nth-child(even)" rule to "background: rgba(10,10,10, 0.2);" and that seems to work fine for the night mode.

Also curious what music genres do you compose in?

From the new profile design that they've already rolled out, this isn't too far fetched. I mean so far their revenue comes mostly from on-site ads and reddit gold. And maybe from the celebrity AMAs on /r/IAmA? Don't think that's reliable and substantial enough to allow reddit to grow further as a company.

At least they still leave options for users to revert to the classic designs, though I wish there were a way to leave those as default if you wanted.

I feel like the so-called fix would really be a mask to prevent the undeleted copies from being discovered again, but not actually getting rid of them

Same, I stumbled upon Hubski a few years ago, independent of Reddit drama. Was honestly just looking for other online communities that didn't get as much spotlight.

The figure could still be made always visible though. The thermometer alone indicates nothing about the exact figures for the goal and raised amounts.

Ooh boy, I've had to read a little bit of Orientalism a while back for a brief university module that I took up, an introduction into a few of Japan's cultural archetypes. I might go for a full read some time in the future.

Even now you could point out traces of cultural influence from the Orientalism paradigm, still persisting in Western media.

At least here in Singapore, there's been quite some frustration that Grab now has one fewer rival to deal with. And I think Uber was more popular due to better app + stronger incentives to return

Also apparently the Uber drivers are now in limbo, since they haven't properly sorted out the transition process to Grab yet
