Why Won't People on The Internet Let Things Die?
My talk will explore the lesser known side of "fanbases". The first part will present 4Chan's /mu/ board and the edification of its musical canon. 4chan is an anonymous image-based board-type forum modeled on Japan's Futuba channel. Highly controversial due to its /p/ board and implications with the alt-right, the forum is also host to cultural sections with their own specific fandoms and canons. The first instruction upon entering is "Read The Sticky": in it we learn what we need to know in order to understand, what is good and what is bad.
