2021.12.03 06:45 _bartlesvilleok_ Why do we listen to Midwest Emo?
I have recently gotten back into the Midwest Emo genre (american football, marietta etc) after a long hiatus. I remember being especially invested in the genre in my mid-teens i.e. around the age of 15-16. Moreover, I remember resonating emotionally with the music to an extent that I have never since reached with any other type of music. I stopped listening precisely for the reason that I lost that emotional resonance for whatever reason. In retrospect, I can't really even fully remember what that emotional connection was—why I was so drawn to the music in the first place.
So, I guess what I am trying to do is appeal to this subreddit to help me understand the emotions/ideas that this genre is successfully appealing to. I remember being totally preoccupied with the Midwestern aesthetic: the vast, flat cornfields; the wide suburban streets with old wooden houses; the cold, snowy weather; an all together empty and decayed feeling. I revealed in the isolated dreariness of the midwestern myth, as if it best exemplified my conception of the state of existence. Undeniably there was also an association with youth and all the anxieties that come along with growing up, but I hadn't really fully articulated these emotions. But I felt a particular resonance with the idea of growing up in the midwestern setting which I could not really explain either (this association was disproportionately incurred by the sort of twinkly guitar riffs of american football). Regardless, I felt these emotions very strongly, and I felt that they were illuminated beautifully by Midwest Emo.
What is so powerful about the progressions and vocals of Merchant Ships? or Marietta? or any other band like them for that matter?
Despite this, I was hard pressed to find anyone else explicitly articulate what this music was giving insight into. There seemed to be a consensus implicit understanding of what it is we feel when we listen to this music. I think I once saw a Youtube comment that just said: "when I see someone listening to Midwest Emo I'm glad I can just sit back and say 'I get that'."
This seems to be how everyone approaches this, but I wanted to create a dialogue for to actively discuss why we listen to this stuff. What are the thoughts, anxieties, ideas and aesthetics that we associate with this music? I would seriously appreciate responses, and I don't think we should just diminish the depth of emotion that accompanies this genre, there is something going on underneath the surface that I think we should look at further.

2021.12.03 06:45 niklas_ema0 I am a big fan and a user of the solana ecosystem. But I wonder how I can access my transaction history when it’s moved to Arweave.
I need transactions to analyze my investments in defi and I need them to do my taxes. If the transactions are moved to Arweave, are there tools like sonar watch and koinly to get data from there?

Hey guys just wanted to tell you about my side effects. I am from Germany and Student. Got the Vaccine on 1th December. Never wanted to get the vaccine but our Government is bullying us into getting it. So I chose J&J because i had a better gut feeling than with Pfizer. Went pretty well. Had almost no symptoms. But i still regret it. I would’ve never got the vaccine without the government pushing us into getting it. Don’t want to recommend any vaccine. It should be your decision. Trust your gut. 😊

2021.12.03 06:45 Veldron So long, Aeternum. I'm headed for shores that don't hate us players.
Broke my personal rule and pre-ordered, only to get brutally reminded of why that is a personal rule. At this point I'm not sure what AGS resents more: the game they made or the people that play it. This latest round of patch notes is the final nail in the coffin for me.
Peace out, hope to see y'all in a game that wasn't an abject failiure.
