    THE VAPORWAVE DISCOVERY PODCAST.

    What is vaporwave? Vaporwave is a music genre (and internet meme) that appropriates mood music from the past while presenting subtle takes on modern day consumerist culture. It has drawn many passionate listeners with its aesthetics, powerful immersion, ambiguous commentaries, and the genre's unique ability to amalgamate with the memes created as its byproduct.

    In each episode, we listen to tracks that make up genre and give our thoughts, emotions, and commentary on them.

    Let's set sail on the Virtual Ocean.

  • The Pilgrim's Progress by John Bunyan

    A journey that takes the hero, Christian, through the varied landscapes that constitute life and through the events that happen to human beings is the plot of The Pilgrim's Progress by John Bunyan. Readers who have read and loved Louisa May Alcott's Little Women would recall the many references to this 17th century work of religious fiction.
    The Pilgrim's Progress is based on several values based in the teachings of Christianity. The importance of using the Bible as a guiding principle in life, of traveling not just geographically but also spiritually, the emphasis on community living and of the companionship of fellow people and many other themes.
    The story begins with a detailed explanation by the author in which he explains his beliefs about misconceptions in people's minds about religion and fiction. He examines the role of stories and parables in the Bible and how they are used to teach us certain lessons about life. The narration goes on to portray a dream that the narrator has once when he is wandering in the wilderness. In the dream, a man named Christian is visited by a spiritual guide called Evangelist who urges him to leave his home in the City of Destruction and embark on an arduous journey to the Celestial City. Christian's family and friends refuse to go with him and he finally leaves alone, carrying a heavy burden.
    The rest of the book describes the strange and laborious journey, punctuated by grief, disappointment, fear and many difficulties. Each of these incidents are portrayed as different people or places that Christian has to pass or overcome before he can continue on his journey and reach his final glorious destination.
    Written in the period between 1677-84 by writer/preacher John Bunyan whose own life was as eventful, fraught with suffering and misfortunes, The Pilgrim's Progress was written during one of his terms of imprisonment for violating religious laws. The book received enormous acclaim and went on to become one of the most popular religious texts in Christianity. It was translated into many languages and was used by preachers and missionaries the world over.
    The Pilgrim's Progress retains enormous appeal for its imaginative and lyrical prose, wonderful descriptions of landscape and travel, simple yet elegant style and also for the delightful touches of humor. Many of the names of places are phrases taken from the Bible, which went on to become common idioms. For modern-day readers, both young and old, Pilgrim's Progress is an interesting and inspiring read.

  • The Adventures of Ulysses by Charles Lamb

    In The Adventures of Ulysses, Charles Lamb re-tells the story of Ulysses’s journey from Troy to his own kingdom of Ithaca. The book uses Homer’s The Odyssey as the basis for the story, but it isn’t a direct translation of the Greek classic. The book is considered a modern version of the epic tale when it was published in 1808. In the preface of the book, Lamb said that he made the narration of the story faster so that more readers would be attracted to it.
    To begin with, Homer’s Odyssey is already a classic and in re-telling this story, Charles Lamb aimed to make this epic poem more comprehensible to the average person. And he was successful in doing what he aimed for. The book became very popular not just to adults but also among children because it was well-written and can be easily understood. Lamb was really talented in bringing deep, hard to understand works of literature close to the masses. Before The Adventures of Ulysses, Lamb also wrote Tales From Shakespeare in which some of Shakespeare’s plays were retold as short stories, so like Ulysses, they can also be easily read.
    The Adventures of Ulysses is filled with interesting characters including sirens, giants, warriors and enchanters. Each chapter is filled with new adventures and challenges which Ulysses must face and overcome. Lamb was able to retell the story of Ulysses’s adventures in a light and entertaining way without losing any of the important details of the original story.
    Readers who are into Greek mythology and are also looking to read a version of Homer’s Odyssey will surely enjoy reading this book. The original version of the Odyssey may not be easy to read for everyone. If you’re looking for a book that will let you understand the story of the epic tale with great accuracy this is the book for you.

  • The Marvelous Land of Oz by L. Frank Baum

    Published in 1904, The Marvelous Land of Oz is the second book in Baum’s Oz series and follows the adventures of Tip, a young boy who travels the mystical Oz after running away from the terrifying witch Mombi. Furthermore, the novel reunites readers with familiar characters including the Scarecrow, Tin Woodman, Glinda the Good Witch, while also introducing bright new characters who deem to be just as memorable. Unlimited action, intense magic, captivating characters, and an unexpected twist, the adventure novel has remained a classic for generations, and has only strengthened the series appeal with its fresh intake on the familiar set.

    The novel begins with the introduction of young protagonist Tip, who after a failed effort to frighten the wicked witch Mombi is threatened to be turned into a marble statue as retribution. Feeling he has no other choice, Tip decides to run away from Gillikin Country and from the person to whom he has been both ward and servant as long as he can remember. Consequently, Tip sets out to Emerald City accompanied by his trusted companions Jack Pumpkinhead and the Sawhorse, who were both brought to life with the help of a magical powder obtained by Mombi from a sorcerer. However, as the group gets separated, Tip is caught up in a revolt organized by an all-girl army led by General Jinjur who plans to overthrow the current ruler of the Emerald City. After one event leading to another, the protagonist and his companions, who now also include the Scarecrow and Tin Woodman, find themselves in a mission to overtake Emerald City. With the help of Glinda the Good Witch, the group must defeat the evil Mombi while also attempt to quash the rebellion and restore rule to its rightful heir.
    Baum cleverly weaves adventure, wit, endearing characters and suspense into one extraordinary piece, as he effectively depicts a broader view of the magical land and adds a bit of history, hence creating an original plot separate from its renowned prequel. Fortified by new literary elements, The Marvelous Land of Oz is the chance to rediscover Oz and reaffirm the author’s imaginative capabilities, as the novel is not to be taken simply at face value but admired for its hidden worth.

    The History of the Peloponnesian War is an account of the Peloponnesian War in Ancient Greece, fought between the Peloponnesian League (led by Sparta) and the Delian League (led by Athens) in the 5th Century BC. It was written by Thucydides, an Athenian general who served in the war. It is widely considered a classic and regarded as one of the earliest scholarly works of history. The History is divided into eight books. These book divisions are the work of editors in later antiquity.
    W. R. Connor [...] describes Thucydides as "an artist who responds to, selects and skillfully arranges his material, and develops its symbolic and emotional potential."
