So recenty I been having a blast for what was like to surf the internet 10 years ago when things were not so centralized.
There was always something new and different right after the next corner and every new place had new people.
I haven't felt that feeling of novelty when you stumbled upon a new resource, flash game, webcomic and so on in a long time, it was always different.

The internet is no longer the wild frontier it used to be and all the pioneers have disappeared.

Years ago common forums were very active and lots of people had personal pages
Today not even google can take you somewhere new.

>letting you be you
It's frankly the best type of internet. It's how it used to be in the beginning, when it was a technical extension of the BBS scene that existed in the 80s. The internet, as its name suggests, made it easy to connect all networks together; in fact it gobbled them up, never to be seen again. People organised themselves by interest, not by identity. Interest is a good way to create connection, while "identity" is often self-defeating.

I've been going through and digitizing my old home movies here. I've got six of them done so far.
So far it's been stuff from '91 - '96. But I have a good bit more in between those years as well to do. Then the last home video that ever was filmed was one from 2000 when I was 10. I'm certainly upset about one tape so far I've come across that has a rattling inside of it. But the tape reel doesn't seem to be damaged. It's a tape of me on Halloween in '94. I've been looking into transferring the film reel into another video cassette tape. Does anyone here have any experience with that or any tips for me? I'd personally like to find a specialist to help me. I feel as if I'd be too clumsy and mess things up to the point where I'll lose the footage.

Nostalgic Crush Thread
This thread is for any nostalgic crushes that you had. What are they from? Why did you like them? (If they're real did they age well? lol) Animated and real allowed.
Try not to judge anyone. This is a friendly thread :D

I'm starting off with an obvious one for me. Mitchell Tratchenberg from Harriet the Spy. She was also in The Adventures of Pete and Pete she's been in a lot of other stuff too. I remember watching Harriet the Spy a lot on my VCR. I can quote the hell out that movie. Harriet was a really cool character and I've always loved writing and ninja stuff and spy stuff so I connected with her character a ton.

So what about you guys?

This was my first waifu. In 3rd-4th grade I was obsessed with this character.

A notably embarrassing memory, I drew a picture of her that I taped up on my wall and surrounded with these tiny electronic candles. Being woken up by my mom the next morning was awkward when she saw it. She looked marginally concerned and disappointed

This was also part of my “goth” phase. I was an edgy elementary schooler.

Cobra Commander from G.I joe. I mainly liked him as a child because his whiny personality made me want to take care of him. Another thing that made me attracted to him was that his hips were well defined. His legs weren't attractive relatively to other members, since it was a cartoon about buff guys, but they were attractive because they weren't covered by large cameo pants. Finally his voice can grow on you.

Going to anwser the age thing, even with a fictional character. Cobra didn't age well for me because it was revealed he was extremely ugly and later seasons he got to whiny with Cora la. Don't like him in reboots because they try to make him a serious leader and redesign him over and over, removing the personality and legs things.

The nostalgia for the 00's right after the next corner, lets talk about it.
I just saw Harry Potter while channel surfing, I know that HP and the whole fantasy wave will be a massive nostalgia blast in a couple of years.

I don't miss much of the culture and stuff but my 90's memories are a void and many important events for my life happen in the 00's
On a personal level I been missing the 00's because I miss teen me, the lifestyle I had back then and the friends I had.
Me and my friends were kind of hipster-nerds, we talked about weird movies, obscure music, strange comics and still keeping an intellectual air to it and there were many persons like that who fed that feeling/aesthetic.
I'm sad that a lost all of that and I became a run of the mill nerd, all other people like that peobably moved on and have jobs and families now.

Lets talk about what we were doing not so long ago.

Same here, I really miss my teenage years and have been really strongly growing a big sense of nostalgia even for things during 2005 - 2007. It used to be '90s - 2005 with it being the cap date from what it seemed. But things still seemed very solid all the way up to 2007 even early to mid 2008. Really seems after that point in time things became shit and hopeless. I also talked about obscure movies, music, and much more as well with my friends during the early to mid 2000s. I introduced most of my social circle to anime and even Newgrounds. I started getting out of touch with everyone in 2007 - 2008 once we all started becoming adults. They've all moved on with families and jobs while I've practically stayed the same with only one friend from that late era left that still associates with me. Also my only IRL friend left which he's getting ready to move. So that's stinging a lot right now.

>I really miss 2000s internet culture. Particularly when flash was the big thing. It was a lot of fun to seek out new flash games and share them with people at school. Flash animations were a lot of fun too. They were a simple time where shooping George Bushes head onto a cat or something was the height of comedy. The early 2000s was a good balance between the mass infested net we have now, and the slow clunky net of the 90s.

I completely agree with you.

Yeah, I got my first cell phone around 1999 just an old basic Nokia but I used phones all the way up until about 2012. I hated the way everyone became so obsessed with their smart phones. So much so I refuse to use a phone in the modern day. Also I agree with your statement about Japan.

Yeah, I still have my Walkman. Works perfect. Also yeah, I skipped CDs and went from cassettes to mp3. Getting a mp3 player really early on. I even had those weird small cartridges that played music that you could swap out that only had like one song a piece on them. Can't remember what they were or called though.

For some reason I could swear I had replied to this thread. Aside Yu-Gi-Oh card's smell, I'm always reminded of my childhood by the smell of some of the perfumes my mother used, also by the smell of some of the scents she used to clean the house, and the smell from dish-wash soap.

My mother's dressing table was next to our computer, I used to spent most of my free time playing games, so her perfumes reminds me of that.

And as I child I always had to wash the dishes, I always wanted to do it really fast to go back playing or watching anime (on tv), and I'm reminded of that by the smell of certain brands of soap.

i'm too old for this vid to find this specific vid nostalgic, but i love the idea of this subtle, relaxing nostalgia fuel. it makes me want to try and make some of my own?

what would your scenes be like?

mine would be: journaling/doodling late at night while i listen to Art Bell on the radio during a thunderstorm, rp-ing on lotr forums while listening to loreena mckennit, sneaking downstairs at night to watch cowboy bebop on adult swim after everyone else had gone to sleep.

when i was little, i had a digital alarm clock then when you held down the snooze button, would produce an orange glowing light. at a close range this proved to work well as a flashlight.

Playing minecraft hunger games in the evenings with my buds would be a big one. In the summer we'd spend the afternoon at the pool then run home to play once it started to get dark. I'd convince my mom to let me skip dinner so we could keep playing. The server we played on was cool in that you could go way out into the map (like thousands of blocks) and were only pushed back in after a while. You could build floating bases and stuff and defend them, it was really fun.

Also my first year of college I was really depressed and would spend the nights hiding in a corner of the library reading and texting my high school friends. Kind of weird to be nostalgic about it since I was pretty unhappy, but I guess you forget that with time.

aw, i like these. i have similar college memories of finding the most isolated corners of the library stacks to do work in, all night long. it was lonely and sort of spooky, but it also inspired me somehow. i never want to pull another all-nighter in my life, but you're right, somehow those memories are still nostalgic.

The comfiest scenes of nostalgia fuel for me would be late night grinding on Guild Wars back in, I guess it would've been middle school. During summer days my room would be far too hot without AC, so I'd only be able to play once night came around, and if it was raining the atmosphere would be even better, with the cold breeze and smell of rain refreshing my room; pretty similar to OP's vid.
I feel like I can never re experience that feeling unfortunately, the closest I can get is mid-spring late nights spent studying and listening to music.
