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.

I had that phone but when I got it (low income family) everyone in my school had phones with IR and BT, so it was kinda obsolete.

This was my very first cellphone, funny times with this bad boy. It had Brick Breaker and Snake I think.
Cellphones were really cool back then.

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'm kind of disappoint 00's isn't stronger, reddit doesn't even have an active 00's board.
A couple of weeks ago I saw an episode of Oban Star Racers a cartoon from 2006 and it blew my mind by how 00's it was. I looked it up and apparently it had a game on java based phones but I'm kind of disappoint because I have no means of finding the game or emulating it.

At least I found this channel:
https://www.youtube.com/user/ramadearbol66/videos
Its mostly full albums from 00's rock bands that didn't made it big, its a nostalgia blast but also has novelty.

God I miss all these older phones. It was great how unique they all were, kind of reflecting the personality of the owner. I wish we could have gone down the "weird japanese phones" route, instead of smartphones…

Remember that scene when Shinji listened classic music on his futon with his walkman? I always was amused by the idea of falling asleep listening music, I tried some times, I used to have a mp3 player (I really can't remember which model it was) but it looked like pic related, except it had a blue led, anyway, I tried sometimes but it wasn't as comfy as it seems, and also can't sleep really well.
I know is just a dumb nostalgia but It really felt great when I get my first mp3 player, I kinda miss it, was really amazing for me, I remember listening all those early 2000s popular songs and blue led looked very cool :-).

Damn, now I miss flash too. Aside from newgrounds, I can't remember the names the other websites I would visit back in the day to play flash games.
Remember when the stick figure game boom?

That I do, stick figure madness, animator vs. animation, just the general shooting games. Which looking back on all of it they were pretty good quality. The stick figure games are on par with something people $5 or $10 on Steam for and they were free. Its a shame that a lot of the FOTM on Newgrounds have been corrupted and are unusable.

Me too. Whenever I tell this to people they start ranting about how bad flash was, which bothers me. I used to make my own flash animations back in 6th grade, although they were terrible.
>>706
I love this. There was something about high-effort art made by complete amateurs that has always really resonated with me. I don't want the stuff I find on the Internet to look like it was made by a big company, I want it to look like it was made by someone like me, trying their best.

Here is one from my childhood that I still love:

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.

I did anon, thank you very much for posting this. I did not get into imageboards until a few years ago, I hung around on the knockoff sites and Newgrounds but not 4chan. It moves pretty fast for what should be something dying I was amazed to see that in two days the whole front of it changed.

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.

Flash was our youtube, and you could get more creative with it than with youtube, and it encouraged people to become illustrators instead of putting your face on a video like the narcissistic youtube personalities. I really miss geocities, home pages, and how people used to write emails that were like letters. Back then Google seemed to be a good company too, and the Rom sites hadn't been taken down, and the huge sections of the internet was designed for obsessing over a particular anime. Every time a new anime came out there would be a new forum set up just for it with unique banners and stuff, and back then time moved slower so you'd have to come back much later to see if you got a reply to your threads.

Politics were more in the background and hadn't invested everything yet. The internet felt like it was clumbsily made by humans for humans to have fun, instead of to sell you products or to steer you toward a big platform or controversy in the news.

yeah, i miss the feeling of needing to learn a new skill if you wanted to produce/post something online. you want a cool Myspace layout? you to AT LEAST know how to copy/paste some code in the right fields in editing mode. and of course if you wanted to make custom ones that required photoshopping banners/backgrounds to fit together with your own layout code.

i remember feeling irritated with photo-filtering services like Piknik started to pop-up, because i had been learning how to manually do that stuff in Photoshop for years…and suddenly all my friends could do it in two seconds with no skills. And now I think about Instagram filters – you literally swipe across a screen and it's done!

It was exiting to learn new skills like this. i guess it's a good thing that it's more accessible, but it takes away chances for people to learn how to do things for themselves. i guess that's always how technology has progressed though…

As someone who grew up in the nineties and early two-thousands, what I really miss is how I used to feel rather than anything specific culturally.

The main part of it was my age, lack of responsibilities, better health, and naïveté.

Perhaps, this is true for a lot of us. It isn't the things themselves (since to be honest, they were mediocre at best), but the memories and feelings they evoke by association.

While I am on the subject of nostalgic feelings, the Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows is almost a decade old now.

“Whatever you now find weird, ugly, uncomfortable and nasty about a new medium will surely become its signature. CD distortion, the jitteriness of digital video, the crap sound of 8-bit - all of these will be cherished and emulated as soon as they can be avoided. It’s the sound of failure: so much modern art is the sound of things going out of control, of a medium pushing to its limits and breaking apart. The distorted guitar sound is the sound of something too loud for the medium supposed to carry it. The blues singer with the cracked voice is the sound of an emotional cry too powerful for the throat that releases it. The excitement of grainy film, of bleached-out black and white, is the excitement of witnessing events too momentous for the medium assigned to record them.”
