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?

Debby Ryan, a.k.a. Bailey from The Suite Life on Deck.

I was obsessed with her. There was a bad few days when I genuinely yearned for her, and toyed with the idea of training to be a child actor just so I could have the chance to meet her on the set of some Disney Channel programme. This would have involved, by the way, moving my entire life abroad to the US. My mother even noticed my pains and managed to get me to admit my crush to her. It passed pretty quickly tbh but I remember it quite clearly.

>>425
I only watched Breakfast Club recently but I found her quite attractive, too. She reminds me of Lain, lol. Then at the end of the film they cleaned up her hair and put make-up on her and she actually looked worse than before.

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.

This thread is for music that makes you feel nostalgic. Post yt links to songs that make you feel nostalgic (even if you don't actually have memories with them) and maybe what the song reminds you of or makes you think of.

I'll start…
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qhKgFjJIZzU
This song reminds me of my earlier childhood (as far back as I can remember - 7yrs) but especially of my old school. I went to a private christian school in the booneys. This song just makes me think of that time. It reminds me of when things were sort of structured..having to tuck our shirts in…all the girls wearing these dresses that went down to your ankles that would seem way out of fashion now. Getting pulled to the principal's office by my ear with my friend. Going around the merry-go-round. Going to the top of the slide and looking out at a massive field with super high grass that seemed to go on forever and a green and orange forest that seemed to hug the school itself.

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.

Newgrounds was my main site as well. I remember getting on a bunch the only two I really remember sticking out besides Newgrounds from the earlier days is JoeCartoon and Killfrog.

I never stopped getting on there, been there since 2004/2005.

This is the truth as well. Everyone was much more creative back then and original.

Also before I end my post. I'll also share a picture of my first phone since a couple of others did throughout the thread.

Regrettably I have already sold Kirby: The Crystal Shards for N64, but do you have a SNES? If you still want Kirby's Dream Course for the SNES I'll mail to you if you live in America. You don't even have to pay me directly, just promise me on your honor that you'll donate $25 to either Bernie Sander or Andrew Yang via secure.actblue.com/‎
to fuck the corrupt capitalist 2 party system and then post your address somewhere and you'll get the game. Just so you know, it's a mini-golf game. (Kirby's Super Star and Kirby 3 are probably the best Kirby style platformers for the SNES, but I only have the first one.)

Alternatively, I'll mail you Kirby's Super Star if you donate $30 to one of those two Democratic candidates. (And I'll mail both of them for a $55 donation.) Shipping is free because the Ebay or Amazon conglomerates would charge me that much for commissions, and my total price is cheaper than what I've seen on ebay or Amazon. Fuck the capitalists, I want to make free college + universal healthcare or universal basic income happen. (Yes, I've become an ideologue who would rather spend my time screaming at Bernie Sander's enemies on, than to play video games. You can play these games, while politics will be my entertainment until Bernie Sanders wins, or dies trying.)

I really wish Bernie Sanders would have won in 2016. He was screwed out of his nomination so bad. I'm honestly worried that he's just simply the "Ron Paul" of his party now.
