I highly doubt its controlled opposition. The reason it exists is because the past few years more and more people have been getting into the whole 80's aesthetics, including me, thanks to vaporwave, games like Hotline Miami, and more people getting into retro things. These people that make it are probably doing it out of autism and not because they don't want to give us a bad image.
As long as we’re all complaining, is anyone else getting tired of all the “X is controlled opposition” bullshit? It’s just become the default response for anons to dismiss any trend or media figure they have some kind of problem with. Not to say we should all just blindly trust everything on the internet, but just because everything is Jews it doesn’t mean that literally everything is Jews. I personally like vaporwave art, I find it nostalgic and comfy, and whoever came up with the idea of using it as a vehicle for right wing messaging was a genius imo.
>>149151 Meh always be skeptical but yeah controlled op feels like a term made by controlled op honestly. Just have a lot of questions and don't follow people blindly including those screaming controlled op and you then should be able to find what is and isn't true.
Fashwave is the new counter-culture just as psychedelic rock was for the hippies. It's not supposed to be studio-level quality simply because it's basically made in someone's basement. It embodies our ideals quite well. It's metamodernism: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aNFcGo0NSkg
Also, Xurious has lots of good music and two excellent music videos. True, some of his work can be a bit repetitive and occasionally he focuses on quantity rather than quality, but we need the material to establish ourselves as a genre.
The baby boom starts in the 40's. The bulk of those people people are at their peak around the 80's. Currently they are facing retirement, old age, infirmity and mortality. Would there not be a boom in nostalgia for when they were at their peak?
Also the 80's is pre-internet so it could be a mild backlash against the social media circus of the internet too.
As for it being controlled. It would be less controllable that a chan.
I do not know about fashwave but am pretty sure every shitty stuff in there it is just their fault not everyone on our side are better than the left there always be a group of idiots here, don't get me wrong, in the left there is barely non-idiotic people and those ones do not know their side well enough.
