"For a genre that’s been declared dead more times than anyone cares to count, vaporwave has managed to expand into a surprising amount of new territory over the course of its short existence. First, there were the now-established subgenres of mallsoft, vaportrap, and future funk, among others. Then, there were upstart, almost anti-vaporwave offshoots like vapormeme and hardvapour. Recently, there have been more ephemeral developments, like Simpsonwave and naturewave. Added to that list is “vaporwave-rap,” a crossover of hip-hop and vaporwave that somehow blends both genres into a surprisingly cohesive whole, despite the seemingly wide gulf between the two. While the number of releases fitting that description can probably be counted on the fingers of one or two hands, their sheer quality suggests that more will soon follow."

Wonderfully, er, loopy!
OUT-OF-WORK TRUCKERS ARMED WITH "ADVERSARIAL MACHINE LEARNING" COULD TRICK AUTONOMOUS VEHICLES INTO CRASHING
Still laughing at the idea of "out-of-work truckers" building aggressive vehicle-jacking systems in roadside diners ("Are you ready to order?" "Sure. A slice of pie and some Python..."), rather than foreign agencies, criminal gangs or blackhat hackers piggybacking a 16-wheeler for LULZ, but "Adversarial Machine Learning" wins my Techgeekspeak Phrase o'the Month Non-Award.
"[Autonomous trucks and taxis] will have to anticipate and defend against a full spectrum of malicious attackers wielding both traditional cyberattacks and a new generation of attacks based on so-called adversarial machine learning. As consensus grows that autonomous vehicles are just a few years away from being deployed in cities as robotic taxis, and on highways to ease the mind-numbing boredom of long-haul trucking, this risk of attack has been largely missing from the breathless coverage."

Our friend Talee -- my favourite / one of the best new W. Country producers, imho -- he utterly whomped it last night with a DJ x FX set.
