What are some VHS tapes that you remember watching when you were younger. Could be home videos, movies, tv shows, cartoons, anime, shit you found in a dumpster, etc.

Share some /nos/talgic VHS memories!

We had Rubbadubbers on VHS. My mother had one of those cars with VHS players, and that's one of the things we watched.
That's about all I remember.

My mom used to sit for ages watching MTV and recording music videos on VHS tapes if I had a birthday party coming up. I guess the benefit was there were no ads/bumpers and you could cut out the songs you don't enjoy. Plus music videos are a lot more fun than a CD. I bet there are still some tapes in the attic full of 90s MTV nostalgia.

It was also a big deal in my country to have your photo shown on this national children's television show. Every morning they'd show the photos of a select few kids and two puppets would wish them a happy birthday. I remember my mom sent my photo in every year and finally (I think I was around 9 or 10) they used my photo. I had such a great morning asking all my friends before class if they saw me on tv lol.

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.

They really had a good way of painting that lonely feel, something about the way they were made always gave me that vibe. There still is the amateur side of things around today, RPGmaker, fangames, rom hacks, and the occasional indie game. But they lack the variety they used to have. Sure they were amateur but the amateur stuff now is all developed from Tumblr or charges you for something that someone made as a labor of love years ago for free.
Its something you miss really, and you can tell when you look at something whether or not someone put some effort in it. Even the copy paste kit RPG Maker is, people put effort in with. Or at least have fun. Now everything is on youtube or done in app stores.

00's were like the 90's with a nice tech update (and the tech would be still enough and usefull today) but without the flaws of reality dominating social media (Hashtags and virtual identity) and smartphone-optimized normienet. Sure I'm biased, I'm born in the late 80's and my youth was basically the 00's, webm related. I cultivated "my" 00's lifestyle till it became an obsession. I live in the past, with all the good stuff, avoiding the bad stuff.

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.

Did any of you browse 4chan when you were younger? Like, before 2007, when it was fun and civil, not the twisted abomination it is now.
Those were the good days. We were all alike, because even if you were a fat neckbeard weeaboo, everyone else was a also a fat neckbeard weeaboo, in their hearts. This picture sums it up nicely.

I think i started lurking around 2005-2006. Everyone seemed obsessed with making vectors of characters from azumanga daioh and other anime. I don't totally remember much about those days since I mostly lurked for the pictures. I get the feeling people forgot that it is an imageboard. These days I see people actually get mad at others in generals for making posts with pictures, since the bump limit for pictures is a lot lower than the bump limit for text only posts.

Hell yeah. Top image is accurate. 4chan and Youtube had just been created and everything was new and exciting. Most 4channers including myself were high-school kids back then. Even something like "lol" was not a part of culture outside of the internet. And feminists were just a passing curiosity, SJW wasn't a thing. Things were pretty chill till around 2008, that's when internet culture started to seep into the real world. Project Chanology was kind of a defining moment for that.

Things were still decent up until around 2012. And IMO the whole GamerGate thing, whether you care about it or not, marked the downfall of 4chan. I mean 4chan still exists and is not going to go down or anything, but every time I go there it's the same 10 generic topics. But that's just how it be. The craziest thing was how the whole niggers and Jews thing went from being a joke to the shitshow we have now.

>>718
Yeah, Yotsuba, Azumanga and Ichigo Mashimaro were the big thing back in 05-06, then Haruhi was pretty big, then Lucky Star, then Squid Girl, then Watamote… Probably missed a bunch. Time just keeps going. Oh well, there's always some new shit going on in the world.

I was reminded of a childhood smell today. I'm not sure what caused it in my environment, but it was probably some combination of the aromas of other people. In any case, it instantly sent me back to the music room in my school where I had percussion lessons. There was such a distinctive scent in that place - a small building containing one carpeted room full of various instruments. A piano, timpani, xylophone, marimba, vibraphone, snare drums, tubular bells, probably more. I don't know exactly what the smell was; all I can say is that it was pleasant, not too strong but very different from the smells of other rooms. Likely a combination of the instruments, the stuff they cleaned the carpets with and the music teacher's perfume. Ah, it took me back.

have you never had a good relationship or did something go sour?

i'm sorry to hear this, one of the few good things in my life is the relationship i have with my mom. not in a "momma's boy" way I don't think, but almost like a friendship

No.617

We've never had a good relationship. We are just very different people. And I'm just not the sort of person who has good relationships. For example, I never used to tell he stuff like "I love you," or hug, or anything else, because I'm just the sort of person who doesn't like doing that sort of thing, and never have been, ever since I was 5-ish. I am also very stubborn, and have very different views from my mother. I had a very bad temper, growing up, which would get me in trouble in school and at home.
Overall, it's just a recipe for a bad son.

No.664

She was the parent that stuck around. She's a disgusting joke of a human being but she was there, and it really makes me sick that such is enough to make her a thousand times the parent that my "father" was.
