2019-01-14: Both newly scraped images and full images are available again after making a deal with Cloudflare to disable caching. This gives us time to research alternative methods of serving full images. Donations would still help in case of image storage failure and we still need a new scraper.
The server is stable, but the scraper is at its final limits due to crippling resource use and cloudflare limits, so /gif/ and /wsg/ images are paused. Let's solve this: help build a new scraper. More details here.

I'll start.

>Car Seat Headrest
>Death Grips
>American Football

IDK if Radiohead counts but if they do I'd probably have them instead of AJJ.

Howdy, ive been having to lurk at work for the last few days since 4chen blocked my phones IP range from posting, I created pic related the other day (with alot of help from chartanon) and been enjoying the response from meal but i also noticed the criticisms- mainly too much doom (and you're faggots for that but whatever) I didnt make this with a specific theme in mind other than genres i personally like but since its so well recieved i figured I could make another roll chart that is more diverse. With that said let's get down to business:
>What should the 10 genres be on the chart?
I can already tell that Stoner, Trad, and maybe sludge are going to be axed and/or mixed. You're going to have to fight me to remove the Gothic Doom and Funeral Doom but ill go by what the community wants at the end of the day since this doomy chart already exists. As much as i like seeing chartanon fish for albums from meal and getting shit on for it, im going to use my method which is starting off with the top 100 albums from said genre on RYM, and then afterwards ask for replacements, i feel it will be quicker and less flooding this way.

>TLDR: What should the 10 genres be on the chart?

Holy crap, /mu/'s a dumpster fire.

/mu/ has no interest in music other than as social capital. They consume enough music that their ability to appreciate the art becomes atrophied and the main goal is to just listen to more obscure stuff.

They are remarkably in love with off-kilter pop music for a board full of people who take pride in their passion for experimental music, and arguments here quickly devolve into interminable baiting between "it's boring" / "no, it's good" / "no, it's shit" because nobody has any basic knowledge of music theory or ability to articulate their opinions beyond "feels."

The few informed listeners of academic music spend their time signaling to the rest of the board and use their taste as leverage to get fifteen minutes of online pseudo-notoriety.

/mu/ consists of people who aren't as weird as they like to think but use their ample free time and piracy to invest in a hobby that makes them feel special or sophisticated, allowing them to compensate for their lack of social skills and failures in concrete or academic pursuits.

The biggest irony is that the vast majority of /mu/ is a hivemind ruled by a handful of online tastemakers mostly concerned with maintaining a balance between supporting "alternative" pop that will appeal to misunderstood teenagers and maintaining street cred among bored college students who constantly seek out"experimental" music for their mild amusement, negating the cultivation of individual taste or critical thinking in relation to music.

It's a feedback loop of posturing, masturbatory attitudes, and enough layers of irony to suffocate any hope of meaningful conversation. This last element--irony--is vital to allowing /mu/ and similar collectives to ignore the reality of their situation and disregard posts as this one with little more than tongue-in-cheek one-word responses.

Deep down you all know you're going nowhere in life and this is all a farce.

you guys have any music for when you have embarassingly strong opinions about what people are like despite never having any meaningful experience with any people and no interest in getting better?
