I like listening to old Grateful Dead concert recordings on archive.org. It's not that obscure but pretty retro.

Not particularly obscure, but I've been listening to Ruins a lot recently, they're a Japanese progressive rock/avant-prog/zeuhl group. Really intense, but complex stuff, almost punk-like. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8m9wFAwR_Qs

Recently transferred ~500 albums to my PC. Varied range of genres: electronic, funk and soul, hip hop, jazz and fusion, rock and metal, etc. My funk collection is easily the biggest though. It's mostly 70s and 80s stuff from the USA, Japan and UK. Fav artists are Prince and Parliament/Funkadelic. Absolute banger here: https://youtu.be/HSXUCrVFFrM
>>14 >format FLAC, I hate streaming due to Quality of Life issues. >how big is your collection around 1.2tbs. >what are you collecting Argentine music. All of it. I've got straight from source rips of the earliest recorded music in my country. I'm also well read (heard?) on late 80s seattle alt rock. Musical shitposts are kinda my weakness. >do you have some treasures or some neat thingamajig? I've got a bunch of CDs of local bands known only to my neighbors. Some are -extremely- good experimental/psych rock from bands now gone that only I and a number of friends will ever remember. I've got a technics 1200. My dad was a DJ and we had one for old time's sake. I cant post anythign from those bands tho so have some siouxie inspired post-punk https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ly3Ns1SVyZU

Retro Visual Kei anon 02/01/2022 (Tue) 14:53:19 No. 2 [Reply]
Does wapchan enjoy visual kei? >What is Visual Kei? Visual Kei is a musical movement that originated in Japan in the mid-1980s. Appearing out of Japan's punk and metal scenes, visual kei is an aesthetic, rather than a genre, pulling imagery from gothic rock, punk, shock rock, glam rock, speed metal and hair metal, often wearing elaborate costumes and flamboyant hair. The movement expanded beyond it's hair punk and glam metal roots in the 1990s to cover a vast array of different subgenres and genres, ranging from extremes such as brutal death metal to accessible genres like synthwave. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=18H2Uc9_7I0 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WNTv-tDtYvU https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gvY7zc0a-7Y https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=81-czr9Zano

>>6 Same here. With the first Internet connection at home I could watch and listen to the original anime openings of cartoons I saw on TV in the 90s; soon I discovered visual kei with groups like X-Japan, Dir en Grey (I even went to one of their lives), Malice Mizer and so on. I started to play music because of the impact J-rock was having on my life.

Does CASCADE count? Listening to Butterfly Limited Express for the first time was an experience. It felt nice in the moment, even if everything else felt like absolute shit. although now, I can't really listen to it with the same nostalgic sense, only to pass time and act like things are fine...
>>2 I love visual kei! I saw Dir en Grey live twice over a decade ago and still get excited for all their new records despite them not really being what I would call visual kei anymore.
>>2 Since this thread is on a slow board I don't feel too bad about posting in it. I am a fan of visual kei. I've been into it since about 2011. Here is a favorite track of mine: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=27WFd8PoDBw

>>70 its the very first text based game, it was released in 1976 by one of the fathers of the internet, Will Crowther, he relesed it for the PDP-10 mainframe computer. In the game, the player explores a cave system rumored to be filled with treasure and gold. The game is composed of dozens of areas, and the player moves between these areas and interacts with objects in them by typing one- or two-word commands which are interpreted by the game's natural language input system. The program acts as a narrator, describing the player's location and the results of the player's attempted actions. It is the first well-known example of interactive fiction, as well as the first well-known adventure game, for which it was also the namesake.

What is the best map and why is it CTF-Face?
It's DM-deck16][ without question. I always liked healpod as well, especially with a lot of players.
>>78 DM-Barricade is one of my favorites, I especially love the soundtrack.

/hkam/ - Hong Kong Action Movies anon 02/02/2022 (Wed) 06:58:21 No. 10 [Reply]
A thread/general for discussing the output (both good and bad) of one of the best and most prolific action movie generators ever: 20th century Hong Kong. What's your favorite action film from the golden era of Hong Kong cinema? Mine's gotta be 'Yes Madam!' The action choreography is some of the best of the era, the cast of characters is great, the comedy is actually funny, and for once the plot makes sense! I've never shown it to someone who hasn't enjoyed it. Also Michelle Yeoh is a total babe.

>>42 How dare you
>>43 Chris Tucker is the GOAT
>>44 Oh, there's no doubt about that. Any actor who's been in both a great scifi flick and a movie with Jackie Chan is alright in my book. Hell, Rush Hour is a good movie. But it's not Hong Kong action. The fights are middling and it's mostly just buddy cop antics.
Yo OP, how about making this a Hong Kong Movie general. There's a lot more of Hong Kong movies outside action genre.
Good idea, I didn't know how busy this board would be so I made something a bit more specific than necessary. I hereby declare this to be a "Hong Kong Movie General". It is done. Post freely.
