Punpun/Junji Ito/Shintaro Kago: http://skreened.com/kultrunized
i sorta want this to become a thing but i also want it to be muh sekrit trend
I just got this in the mail, the quality is way better than I expected.
ugh ugh i really want some of the stuff from that skreened website, but i would probably edit some of the shirts to better suit my tastes.
iktf, also if people watched the animus that some of the stuff is of that'd be ideal too.
Those kago shirts are awesome. fucking love kago
yeah man, if this hits off (which I doubt it will) I just know that the same people who associate Anime with NEETs now will hop onto it if other people start enjoying/verifying it. I predict that Anime in general will become very popular with everyone in a few years, nothing wrong with that of course
>/fa/ has shit taste in anime. k-on is good tho
K-on is a poor man's Lucky Star.
>has shirts with Rin, Hanako, and Emi
>No Shizune and Misha
What the actual fuck? Do these people have no taste?
Does anyone know of any place that sells stores that feature the good characters?
i've just heard their ink isn't the highest quality/fades quite fast but i could be wrong, i've just never trusted those websites. if worst comes to worst i'll probably buy that eva one and some punpun stuff. if you like it cop it, i'm just looking for alternatives.
i ordered this hat from http://apparelk.bigcartel.com/ like a month ago and it hasn't arrived. i emailed them and they said they would reply later, but that was like a week ago. ill update you guys on the situation in the future if you give a shit, I hope it was just a shipping issue and nothing on their end.
this is groce
I keep reading all these posts about people equating this stuff to liking an I'm or that if it picked up it would mean a nine becomes popular.
I don't think you understand the vapor influence here. This is more of a critique of the vanity within a material obsessed culture. It is poking fun at an I'm if anything.
why poke fun at people who like anime?
>weeb appropriation because anime is cool now
>implying this isn't people wearing animeme shirts to be special snowflakes
if you're critiquing mainstream culture why not use mainstream symbols? I don't see what anime has to do with it.
>like a month ago
Open up a Paypal claim agaisn't them. If they won't respond to a simple shipping request they have to respond to Paypal or lose your money.
I don't understand how you waited almost a month without doing something about it.
"When presenting the music visually through videos and jacket art, vaporwave artists draw on early internet imagery such as glitch graphics, late-90s web design, outmoded computer renderings and cyberpunk aesthetics. Japanese characters are also prominent, evoking Japan's image in cyberpunk works as an advanced capitalist society."
its not a personal attack on you for liking anime or me for liking hip hop. Don't take it personally or get upset.
I've been on /mu/ for a year and a half and i never realized that vaporwave had it's own wiki entry.
but even if you're appropriating things like anime and hip hop as art it looks kinda ridiculous to the people who are getting appropriated.
you keep saying appropriation, and I guess that's the right term, but it kinda down plays much more serious appropriation problems. Like Iggy Azalea appropriating a southern black accent and passing it off as her authentically, or people wearing native american headdresses.
this isn't really appropriation imo, its taking this imagery and juxtaposing in away to make a much broader statement.
If this is appropriation, then so are music samples in hip hop, or adjusted images used in other graphic art. I would contend that when one makes art, they are contributing to large "pot," if you will, that contains "all the art," which I think anyone should be allowed to draw inspirations and ideas from as long as proper credit is given. And even that should be waved sometimes. If you remember when Bob Dylan tried to sue Coldplay over a chord progression, I think you can at least see what I'm saying as far as the idea to freely be able to create and express oneself, so long as it isn't just an extremely blatant ripoff.
as are most threads?
this likes specific shit, so you should look at other places as well as here.
For instance, I love Mark McNairy, Actual Pain, Mishka, etc.
Not so popular here, albeit, not unheard of though. So I come here but I get around.
fugggg this is dope bru bru, how've i never heard of this
appropriation becomes a problem in two scenarios
when one uses a foreign influence simply as an exotic element w/o considering its much richer cultural background
when one assumes it as ones own, once again, w/o any consideration or appreciation for/of its background and those who grew up within it
iggy's fake accent is bad bc she assumes it as her own when shes from straya
native american headdresses were a problem bc they were worn simply for exotic effect
same w bindis hijabs native american patterns(navajo in particular) indian patterns and dress(especially saris) and the list goes on
anime in this context is used simply bc whoever makes these shirts things that the juxtaposition of anime and popular western culture look cool and interesting
no thought is put into the cultural background and influence of the subject
...thats what vaporwave is?
I'm sorry, if you don't get it I can't make you. It's art. It's open for interpretation. I've typed enough stuff out lol. You do not have to like or appreciate it. It's not an appropriation of anime, because it is being juxtaposed to create something new with an entirely different direction.
Like I said, think samples in hip hop. If you think those are appropriations too, idk what yo tell you bru
but samples are typically used to create more dense and lush soundscapes and less for exotic effect
i thought this thread was abt just the whole anime print stuff going on lol
idk enough abt vaporwave to argue anything about it
i think ab=ppropriation is taking an existing thing and using to head in a different direction
i just have a problem w the way its used for that purpose most of the time
appropriation is only a problem in cases where you are contributing to maintaining a discourse of Other-ness about the culture being appropriated
what I mean is, if you wear a Native American costume to a party, you're contributing in a subtle way to how people perceive Native Americans -- these kinds of representations of another people add up to a skewed and Other-ed perception.
At its root, the problem is that Native Americans (for example) don't want their culture being spoken for by white people with the most marginal of interest in it
but outside of that, appropriation isn't a problem. IMO. It's not evil to have a little bit of interest in another culture and show it off. Your culture is not your property to be stolen -- people who think Iggy Azaelia is "appropriating" black culture need to stop trying so hard to put a bad spin on the fact that she's imitating the various rappers who came before her.
There used to be a point to complaining about appropriation. Now it's just used to say "hey, that's MY culture, you can't have it!" as if it's about whether you have the rights to a culture's intellectual property
cultural appropriator coming thru
Anime sucks if you like anime you have bad tastes in everything especially visual entertainment and clothing
Anime is for unpopular aspies with severe autism, that are virgins and get beat up by the cool rich successful fashionable people
still pretty new to /fa/ so probably a shitty fit
What size you wearing + your weight? I'm short n stocky and thinking of getting a medium
Pic not f/a/shion but from the same store
