Video Game Counter Culture – 10/10 Would Too


Leave a comment

So it Finally Had to Happen…

I’ve had to start backlogging photos on KillTheNewMedia.com to make room on the site for new galleries, since I have not yet been able to upgrade to a Premium Membership on WordPress. These will be available for $15+ Patreon subscribers, and links to the galleries will posted directly to Patreon.

HERES THE LINK TO KILL THE NEW MEDIA’S PATREON! – https://www.patreon.com/KillTheNewMedia

 

Cosplay and non-video game culture photos and editorials will be leaving the site first, and the best ones will go in my personal portfolio, which will be publicly available once compiled on a different site. Photos taken by other multimedia artists which need to be backlogged will also be available via Patreon, and posting them elsewhere is their choice to make. However, external links to the galleries they have posted will also be posted to Patreon for $15+ subscribers.

Some changes have also been made to Pledges. Any content that is not video game culture or counter-culture related will NOT be posted to the site, but these photos and editorials will be posted on Patreon for $15 subscribers with private gallery links. This includes convention, cosplay, and high fashion, as well as event and live performance photography.

IN OTHER AWESOME NEWS! I no longer have to attend physical therapy 3 times a week while working a full time day job. This sucked up so much of my time that I could have spent on the site and its content. After 5 months I finally have my life back and its freakin’ amazing.

So expect lots of new content!! I’ll be posting tons of stuff on the site and on Patreon and I’m so excited to share these last few months of music, art, chiptunes, video games, virtual reality raves, neon clothes, pokemon parties, metal shows, and general mischief.

Also, THANK YOU! So many of you have contributed to this site in so many ways. The pledges, the reposts, the video game party invites, the music download codes, the hugs. You’re all so fantastic and your contribution makes this project all the more exciting and really makes this an awesome experience. You da best. ❤

Retrograde: New Adventures in Chiptune // Second Chiptune Compilation Album from I Thought You Were a Marxist Records

A little over a year ago, netlabel I Thought You Were a Marxist Records scoured the forums of the internet to collect a group of chiptune artists for a Bandcamp compilation release called Operation Fuck the Moon. It was rad (and also free to download HERE) and full of bleepy, experimental chipmusic goodness with mellow, upbeat, dark, and noisey beats thrown together in a sort of “anything-goes” mash up of underground artists.

A follow-up to the compilation, Retrograde: New Adventures in Chiptune, is now online as a free, 10 song digital album on Bandcamp. It features experimental and chippy dance songs from artists involved in the previous album (myself included!), as well as music from a handful of new artists!

Grab your headphones and check it out!

“18 months ago we commenced Operation Fuck the Moon. After impregnating Luna with our 8-bit chunks, we left for a pack of heart containers and never came back. Now we have settled on Mercury and are enjoying the metaphysical inconsistencies that are a result of our new planet’s state of retrograde, and impart it in our art. Here is a collection of musical amalgams; our new adventures in chiptune.”
