A new update, huh? I like it. The theme, the new templates, heck, even the new comments!
Wait. I have to remake my user page? Fine.
Rebooting...[edit | edit source]
Reboot Complete! Carry on, now!
Damn Son, Where'd Ya Find This?[edit | edit source]
I blindly stumbled upon this beautiful site in, let's say, about April of 2015, shortly after the big move. I had been browsing TV Tropes, learning about the Sesame Street knockoff known as Peppermint Park. I immediately began looking for more information about it. Aside from a Wikipedia page, there wasn't really much information about it. Then I clicked on this article, and I was instantly hooked to the amazing world of lost media. Now I mostly just browse around the forums and wiki, editing articles when I think they need a little something.
Hi, My Name is (Who?)[edit | edit source]
I guess now would be a good time to tell you a little about myself. Though I won't get too personal, I will say that I live somewhere in Northwest Ohio. Like nearly 90% of the people who browse the LMW, I am currently a student, slowly waiting for the school year to end. I'm also an avid reader, writer, and music fan.
Here is some other stuff I (for some reason) am willing to divulge.
- I've been involved in many other communities. Some I am proud of (LMW), others, I am not (Sonichu)
- I sometimes go on to dead wikis and explore the knowledge they have to spare.
- Here's a good one: /i/nsurgency wiki. This was a place where 4chan's numerous raids were documented, along with tools and tips. Be warned, there is some NSFW stuff on there, since it is 4chan, and there is some vandalism you may have to revert, at the risk of your IP being revealed
- The Bibliotheca Anonoma, another cool place is something I think the LMW should also link to. Their mission is to archive pieces of internet folklife. Some stories that I think are cool that they have archived are Blindmute Loli (Not NSFW) and Damaged Goods (Also not NSFW)
Here, Have This[edit | edit source]
Before you go, here's some stuff you should check out.
Music-wise[edit | edit source]
GORILLAZ[edit | edit source]
As my unfortunately outdated username suggests, I am a fan of Gorillaz. Their music ranges many genres, from rap to rock to just about everything else.
Daniel Johnston[edit | edit source]
If you are a fan of outsider or lo-fi music, then you've most likely heard of Daniel Johnston. Johnston, like 99% of all other outsider musicians, first gained fame on radio station WFMU thanks to DJs like Irwin Chusid (Kurt Cobain being a fan and wearing artwork from his album during the MTV Music Awards didn't hurt) His music is pretty good, with his catalogue reaching all the way into the early 1980s. Now if you are looking for music to listen to, my personal favorite is 1990, his magnum opus. His one album produced professionally,Fun, is also pretty good too. However, if you are into lo-fi, I suggest listening to Hi, How Are You.
Oliver Tree[edit | edit source]
This guy is the prime example of looks being deceiving. His mixture of EDM and indie-pop (with a little hip-hop sprinkled in between) makes his music all the worth to listen to. His looks don't hurt as well...
Graphic Literature (aka Comic Books)[edit | edit source]
Hip-Hop Family Tree[edit | edit source]
Ed Piskor's Ben-Day Dot-infused artwork combined with a historically accurate telling of hip-hop's history makes a great gift for any rap buff.
Th-th-th-That's All Folks![edit | edit source]
Well, that about wraps it up for me. Be sure to come back in 4-6 months, so you can see how my tastes have either improved or declined drastically.
Rock Over London, Rock On Chicago! Wheaties, Breakfast of Champions!
P.S. If you want to take a peek at some stuff I'm working on, then right here is a nice place to find it.
