Those outside of Japanese culture, who, through fandom and such, have somehow gotten the idea that Japan is better than wherever they are living, and try their hardest to be Japanese. This behavior, however, may show in people who aren't Japanese, and simply enjoy the Japanese culture they know, having no desire to be Japanese or idea that Japan is better than where they live. Wapanese are the extreme stereotype of obsession with Japanese culture.
If it's Japanese, I LIKE IT. (Shallow minded?)
Always do this.
Douglas Adams said so.
A mostly media-made term for encompassing all forms of electronic music, as individual forms of electronic music aren't popular enough for record stores to devote full sections to. Generally, it will be found next to an equally small "dance" section that carries the more danceable stuff, while electronica section carries more listening music.
House, Trance, Techno, IDM, Jungle, Anything-core, Trip-hop, Acid/Electronic Jazz, Whatever-bient, and thousands of other obscure genres are generally stuffed into "Electronica"

If it weren't tied to it's perch it'd be pushing up the dasies!
Japanglish is quasi-language almost exclusively used by the most clueless of the wapanese
, consisting of both English and Japanese words being used in the sentence. This is usually as a result of the said wapanese person trying very hard to be as Japanese as possible by speaking the language, but since s/he only knows very basic vocabulary and sentence structure, english words are also used. English sentence structure dominates despite this. It is uncommon to see japanese words other than "watashi", "kimi", "neko", "baka", "kawaii", and a few other such fandom-oriented words actually used. Pronounciation of these words may range from being absolutely wrong in a clueless, to absolutely wrong though still conceited, to more accurate than common Japanese speech and pretentious as possible about it. Commonly used by self-proclaimed "otaku
" as well. Often accompanied by "anime
smileys" such as ^_^ and XD.
Japanglish sometimes also refers to a pseudo-language used in learning Japanese; this is rare in internet culture.
"OMG! Neko-san is sooooo baka XD"
- Probably someone
"That's so kawaii!!!"
- Gwen Stefani
Almost all wapanese forum speech uses some form of Japanglish.
What you say after quoting a stupid post. Then edit it later on with "oh".
Requires absolutely no punctuation or capitalization. Do neither for effect.

"Intelligent Dance Music", an often debated term for a style of electronic music (as "intelligent" sounds pretentious and it's not really "dance music") that encompasses a confusingly wide area of music. Mostly enjoyed by computer nerds and LSD-heads, mostly a combination of both. Known for being more cerebral than many forms of music, thus "intelligent". Listeners of this form of music are generally stereotyped as pretentious musical afficionado pricks.
Popular artists include Aphex Twin (Richard D. James), Squarepusher, Autechre, Amon Tobin, and on the harder side, Venetian Snares.
Popular labels include WARP Records, Planet Mu, Merck, and Rephlex.
