Hello everyone! This is your Daily Dose of Internet!

[vocoded] In retrospect, the Vaporwave aesthetic was somewhat limited

Real world, human-to-human tactile contact

Will kill you

[vocoded] BASED

All human interaction, whether it be social, political, spiritual, sexual or interpersonal


Should be contained in the much more safe, much more real

Interior digital space

Technology is about to go crazy

The non-digital world is merely a theatrical space in which on stages and records content

for the much more real, much more vital, digital space

Feeeeel liiiiiike SHIIIIIIII [vocoded] You will live to see man-made horrors beyond your comprehension

You know? Happiness is, for me, a very conformist category

The only way forward is forwards. Nothing exists but what is in front of you. CRAWL.

Oh hi! Thanks for checking in! I’m still a piece of garbage.

[German] Ich wollte Sie nur fragen, Herr Žižek

Hey! Hey! Heeeeeeeey!

How did this happen? [vocoded] I am cringe, but I am free

Unsere Zeit ist um… [vocoded] Es wurde Zeit

The sun is a deadly laser [vocoded] You will live to see man-made horrors beyond your comprehension

Meanwhile, good sense requires that all of us prepare for any eventuality

[vocoded] Now I am become death, the destroyer of worlds

[Ukrainian] русский корабль, иди нахуй

Today, a young man on acid, realised that all matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration, that we are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively. There is not such thing as death, life is only a dream and we are the imagination of ourselves

Here’s Tom with the Weather!
