Re: Techdad Discussion

I haven't seen it so can't really comment but was interested to see just how ridiculous an exclusively white people LA would be in 2049. According to the extremely helpful California Department of Finance website LA is projected to be 38% white in 2050 (compared with 54% now).

Re: Explain cyberpunk to pirx so he can sell it to old peopl

It's the brand list for everything they're wearing. Whole thing's a massive automated SUTO thread and if you get too many neg reps you go to prison.

Re: Explain cyberpunk to pirx so he can sell it to old peopl

Looks like dystopian snorkle-punk is already here and it's quite a maximalist aesthetic.

tfw the only work still available for non-genetically-enhanced humans is scavenging the ruins of neo-neo-tokyo but it's 10m underwater due to completely melted antarctic ice sheets

Re: random fashion jersey tucks

Delighted to discover that teens allegedly think Supreme is less cool than Doritos. Also loving the fact that they rated Vice as less cool than Yahoo.

Re: random fashion jersey tucks

Can't actually find any quotes on it now but I think it was lack of ambition / immiseration of working-class culture / fashion is great so why should only rich people get to appreciate it? I suspect he would also argue something along the lines of working-class people being the drivers of culture in...

Re: The Price Of Quitting The Game

I'm living out of a suitcase for the next 3 months with all the rest of my stuff in storage, interested to see how it affects my commitment to The Game™. Definitely some things I already miss, but I reckon I'll have totally forgotten about at least half of it by the time I get back. Should definitel...

Re: I don't know what I want (Buyer's guide)

Depends on why you want to change your purchasing habits. If you want to switch to buying things that fit into your current outfits as a way to reduce your consumption in general, and you think that approach will help you achieve that goal then check out The Price Of Quitting The Game and good luck....

Re: Tech-yes!

Good luck! I was so nervous when I first played in a club I could barely queue up records, fingers crossed you are made of sterner stuff. Main things I've found helpful to remember: 1) Records you think you know really well will end up sounding surprisingly different through a club system. That's ok...

Re: 2016 Retrospective

Tell me about how you did in 2016 I bought 36 things. 21 of them were made by Jan-Jan Van Essche (22 if you include an O Project tee). Having sat down and actually added it all up the end result is totally absurd, the most I've ever spent on clothes in a year by miles. This is peak in the game. Non...

Re: Explain cyberpunk to pirx so he can sell it to old peopl

Star Wars was definitely doing the degraded technology thing but it was quite explicitly all happening on "the frontier". The whole Westerns half of its reference points. As soon as they got anywhere near a city it was full gleaming modernity. Also the general idea seemed to be that all th...

Re: News/Current Events, discussion (Bullets, Ballots & Bomb

Absolutely delighted to hear that we've decided to "explicitly rule out membership of the EU’s single market". Hard Brexit here we come! Rainy Fascism Island, back in the driving seat of our own sad, irrelevant destiny. Also quite entranced by the breath-taking chutzpah required to enact 6...

Big fan of these political compass memes, especially the ones that sort of make sense for a couple of quadrants but are ultimately just stupid. Like this:

@khayandhi: Any other recs in that area? I have the "1970's Algerian Proto-Rai Underground" compilation (which features that song) and it's full of HITS but beyond that I am clueless.
