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.

i'd use this clock to read chapter books and archie comics when i was supposed to be asleep.

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.

>Cartoon Network, Nickelodeon, etc.
>every cheat code and FAQ site under the sun
>Newgrounds, Albinoblacksheep, and all the flash game sites that grabbed games from them

Being on chans for so long has really desensitized me and made me stoic as fuck. Maybe not so much desensitized as it is just disassociation. General disdain for normalfags (which is probably 99.9% of the population)

when i was little, before youtube was a thing, i used to go to a site called stupidvideos to watch goofy and random video clips.

that site is where i watched this old gem for the first time.

I still log in occasionally, pretty bummed out that they're abandoning their flash projects in favour of unity, it wouldn't have been upset if it was literally anything else.

Dear Livejournal,

For a long time we would go over to my Mother's mother's house for Christmas Eve, have dinner and open a few presents. This was mainly in my earlier childhood up until around the 5th or 6th grade.

After that we had Christmas Eve dinner at our own house. We would always get up to open presents at around 4 am and eat Hillshire sausage, crackers and cheese until around 8 then we would get ready to go to my dad's parents house and have Christmas lunch/dinner.

We did the latter until my grandfather died then we tried one more year but my grandmother couldn't do it anymore after that. The subsequent years we would have smaller get togethers at her house but she gradually lost her memory and now she's in a nursing home.

While I was in school we would always do "special" things too once the holiday started. One year we went to a Christmas light show, then another particularly memorable year we went to a planetarium and they had something about Christmas and Jesus. It was actually really good though.

We would almost always eat at the Outback after whatever we did.

Once my grandfather died my dad lost a lot of drive to do anything and ever since then my Christmases have been a depressing, horrible mess. This year was no doubt the worst.

I was very lucky to have a functional and good childhood. My family has gone to shit now and have been that way for a 5-6 years. We had to foreclose the house I grew up on and now we rent a little shithole in the sticks with no central heating. Parents don't work, sister lives here with her kids, barely a pot to piss in and I just know they aren't going to have the great Christmases I did.

That makes me sad. We'll never have as much money as we did growing up and their dad is a worthless shithead alcoholic who won't child support.

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?

My God, I really didn't even like the show that much, but I thought she was the most beautiful creature I had ever seen. She's only looked better with time

That's pretty cute. I don't think I've ever had a fictional crush before: the closest I got was when I watched Neon Genesis Evangelion a year or so ago: Kaworu is a good character.
Then again, I had a crush on a real person I knew online all the way back in early high school.
