"Plastic Love" hot take

I love this song, but its reputation has been tarnished over time for me seeing how its “fans” ended up harrassing a photographer due to the messy copyright issue it’s been having for some time.

It’s almost as if they’re not even real fans of the song, and instead of dancing to the beat they just get riled up over some petty issue.

Just look at this comment chain (CW: racist, anti-Semitic, hateful remarks): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3bNITQR4Uso&lc=UgxVtS3AtfPbGTPaTtd4AaABAg

A couple of notes about the 737 MAX controversy:

  • No, being “grounded” does not mean the 737 MAX is banned from flying for good. The 737 MAX planes are prevented to fly until the parties calling - or Boeing - finished with their investigation.
  • No, not all 737s are grounded. Just the new 737 MAX 8 planes, which has the catastrophic flaw with the MCAS, which caused the #JT610 and #ET302 accidents. The 737 NG planes and 737 Classic planes are all unaffected.

After the most-viewed video of their infamous track, リサフランク 420 / 現代のコンピュー, was removed from YouTube due to copyright issues with its sample, the vaporwave scene went dormant for some time. But finally, thanks to the power of the internet, it was re-released as a “complete edition” with all the original, as well as a few other tracks previously never heard.

This is it… The community re-release of Vaporwave’s most infamous album, complete with every included bonus track from both the cassette release, Beer on the Rug Release, and OESBEE Vinyl Pressing. I think it’s important we have a version like this preserved in case the worst happens. All files are either the highest quality .mp3 320kbps or a RAW .flac cassette rip.

Yes, in case you’ve missed it, this website has been redesigned again!

This is probably my most ambitious redesign to date, since I’ve also taken the time to clean up old components and restructure existing ones to be easier to maintain. (One component uses Hooks now!)

I’ve also taken the time to create a personal design system, which I’ll use for this website, as well as some future applications. It’s called Chungking, and I think you’ll love it. You can take a look at it here.
