Cookin Soul - Hello Girl [hip hop/electronic] 2018 by MIERDAPORQUE in listentothis

Look up an artist named Nujabes. He was a guy named Jun Seba and he was the producer for the soundtrack of a classic anime known as Samurai Champloo. His work with anime combined with his influence on hip hop music created a genre what is known as lofi. Lofi songs are typically a more mellow hip hop style instrumental. Jun was killed in a car accident and became known as the godfather of lofi music, because of Jun's work with anime soundtracks you see anime scenes paired with lofi songs as an homage to Jun.

[Discussion] When will the popularity limit be removed? by JawnsDoesReddit in listentothis

You only think something is wrong because your experience on reddit is that of a content grazer. r/listentothis has never been and hopefully never will be a community geared towards that type of user experience

The only thing wrong with the subreddit is that people like yourself wander in and have the gall to ask why it doesn't cater to their needs

The FCC is about to kill net neutrality. We’re protesting nationwide on Dec 7th to stop them. by JPTIII in listentothis

So if you haven't already, there's a bot you can text, that helps you write an email or a fax, free of charge, to your senator, or governor. Text "resist" to "504-09" and it'll ask you some questions, then you're onto writing. From another thread a few weeks ago, someone posted this message, and it think it's a great one to send.

"Net Neutrality is the cornerstone of innovation, free speech and democracy on the Internet.

Control over the Internet should remain in the hands of the people who use it every day. The ability to share information without impediment is critical to the progression of technology, science, small business, and culture.

Please stand with the public by protecting Net Neutrality once and for all."

I'd love to credit the user, but have lost the comment, but please, go send some faxes, show your politicians you want net neutrality to stay.

The FCC is expected to announce a vote to gut net neutrality rules the day before Thanksgiving. Only a big burst of phone calls to Congress can stop them from allowing ISPs to charge us extra fees to access sites, apps, games, and especially the music we all love.

The price of freedom is eternal vigilance.

Edit: Since this is getting popular I'm going to address some of the people arguing against Net Neutrality below me. I cannot make it clear enough that Net Neutrality is NOT the government regulating the internet. Net Neutrality is the government regulating the ISPs, AKA the people who have the power to regulate the internet. Under Title 2 restrictions ISPs are treated as utility providers like water or electricity and as such are not allowed to tamper with your service. Net Neutrality has absolutely nothing to do with government surveillance or control. I sincerely encourage anyone who is rallying against this to put down identity politics for a moment and do some research into what Net Neutrality is and why we need it. This is not a Democrat vs Republican issue. This decision will affect every single person in America.

Why is it that every lo-fi song i come across has a title like "we used to make hot cocoa and listen to the rain in bed but now you're gone and i miss the smell of coconuts on your left clavicle" or something
