let me take you back for a moment:
i remember seeing warprecords.com in its old glory for the first time back in the early 2000s on my friend's computer screen. it was really a piece of art at the time i thought. how creative and colorful, with the _amazing_ logo animation and inventive layout system. looking at it now, i still think the same. think about all the nice websites that are forgotten every time somebody needs to "modernize". really glad archive.org exists and of course, the creators, the designers republic (still rolling with flash-based websites)
do you miss the old?

Ord som kommer oppi ord
Ord som er ord
Ord er ord
Når noe er noe
så er det ofte noe
men det ikke alle vet
eller noen vet
og ofte vet på samme tid
uten å vite det
er at noe er noe
og det er fucka
fremtid uten penger?
I'm having trouble coming up with a coherent introduction at the moment. I make this thread because my head is spinning after days of reading and scrolling through blogs and tumblrs and weird websites.
Is the modus operandi of 'underground' culture (outmoded term) shifting? Or is it just putting on a new outfit? My vision is very clouded by a barrage of content right now, so I can't trust my own judgement.
Is the increase in experimental electronic music, left-wing fashion subcultures, and 'futurism' just the next phase of the 'hipster (in late 2000's sense, not 90's)' ? Is an attitude phresher and less brain-damagingly petty than before pushing vice and pitchfork aside?
Is re-hashing, retrofitting, reviving...reaching the point where it happily melds with the present? Has the aversion to the present (displayed in endless ironic revival, nostalgic recreations) created a present so soaked in the past that paradoxically things are going somewhere again? Or is that feeling itself a rehash of the emotions of the early 90's!?!?
To me, late 2000s were full of this cynical, self-hating group of internet critics unenthusiastically trying to explain and keep tabs on art and music and pop culture, putting it in a box and removing the fun of it. Is that dying out?
Is it fruitless to continue to frame the present in respect to the past, or is it right to be endlessly cynical?
For those of you who lived through the late 80's and 90's and saw all the absurd and colorful directions things went...are the current streaks in high art and underground streetstyle retro reenactments of those times, or are we breaking free of this cultural regurgitative loop?
