Bad – this sweater (more importantly, this swoosh and design)

 

Vaporwave Cup Sweater

This aesthetic is coming back that is not quite kistch or camp, it just sort of IS. I’m tired of seeing it, and every modern internet artist using it to be “clever”. This aesthetic is hackneyed. (I’ll still buy the shirt tho)

 

 

Good –

 

This is literally one of my favorite music videos out right now. It uses a lot of really not-too-distant artifacts (sega dreamcast??) to create an aesthetic. The whole vibe is “we really rendered this entire thing on a 2002, 333MHZ iMac, and I don’t care” which I love.
