i don't really like spacehey anymore tbh heres why

read capitalist realism: is there no alternative by mark fisher (genius af) to get some context

people (mostly and oddly, gen-zers like myself) clinging to the scene era n sites like this instead ov forming their own personalities n stuf (not saying all of yall are doing that, and it's not an insult), the creepy "return to tradition"ness of the whole myspace revival scene that could lead to kinda reactionary places if unchecked, n etc. are reasons why i haven't been using this lately.

idk it just feels like a circlejerk of nostalgia n toxic positivity furthered by capitalism, which feeds off nostalgia n is inherently against individuality n creativity. 

the idea for spacehey is nice, and i've met good people here, but i've just become disillusioned with it.

i'm still using the site because there are some cool people here, but ye

5 Kudos

so true, i have nothing against millennial cc that still use the website in order to maintain the essence of early 2000 myspsce scene aesthetic, i actually find it cool that these folk really commit to their subculture, and they values within.

however, as a gen z myself, i find odd to see other gen z to be deeply into the scene (now "scenecore") subculture when most of us were either children or unborn by that time. I understand one can be nostalgic for times you haven't experienced on your own, but the level of homogenization? doubtful.

so true. new ideas and experiences are limited because people still want to box themselves into a certain "style" or "aesthetic", on a site where trends are pretty much irrelevant. in order to appreciate something, we do not need to copy it 1-1.
