NOT THE SAME AS THE Y2K AESTHETICy2k aesthetic is ethereal/space-agey, 2000s aesthetic is warmer, more down to earth whilst being maximalistnotable phenomena include gaudily-textured cgi anthropomorphs, potato quality internet media, maximalist design cues (sometimes to the point of being cluttered and overwhelming)i'll start
>>389965On that notehttps://youtu.be/Bwv_rP2Ufx0
https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLw2eQf1u-_uuIbko6HcK8jXa9v3zhD_8z240p youtube vids and crappy cgi
>>3896272000s don’t have an aesthetic lolJust low megapixel count The decades-having -aesthetics paradigm ended with last millennium, now it’s all just a soup
>>390012personally i'd dispute that, if you compare 2000s aesthetics with 2010s aesthetics, personally i feel that the former is maximalist and likes to use bold colours whilst the colour schemes of the 2010s are more subdued and designs are more minimalist
>>390052no uhttps://christtt.bandcamp.com/album/deep-dark-trench(i'm not christtt i just think this album sums up the aesthetic pretty well)
>>389627Go home zoomer
This screams 2000's
>>390012The early 2000s are like y2k era and lots of post 90s or adult contemporary. Mid 00s and after are the mcbling era what with the ipod aesthetic and everything. 2010's was like, all about boho, minimalism, and neon coming back.Although the 80s came back like, 4 times or so in between all that? It's crazy
>>3900682000 was 20 years ago. deal with it, boomer>>390083this anon knows what's up
>>390137how the fuck did i forget crazy frog lmao
>>390137I forgot he had his dick out all the time. How did they get away with that
>>390157iirc the guy that made him came from a scandinavian country? probably because they're not anal about non-sexualised nudity over therealso pretty sure they got rid of the dick when he came over to america
>>390120i think every single mascot in the 2000s was either an animal or had a sideways/backwards hat. or both in this case
>>390169i think you're onto something there. definitely a big focus on gaudily rendered non-human anthropomorphic beings yeah
>>390171YOOOOOOOthis show was soooo good when I was a kid and I remember specifically the metro episode
>>390173holy shit i haven't even watched it, i just remembered there was a arabic language show from like 2006 with outdated cgiwhat was the show like anon?
>>390083>Although the 80s came back like, 4 times or so in between all that?The 80s will never die
>>389627Hey OP, sorry for being so rude to you in the other thread (I'm the guy who made these posts: >>389906, >>390117)I'm going to try to make up for it by dumping some stuff from the previous threads I mentioned, hope you like it.
This video has some y2k but it's mostly mid-00shttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0KIwjChhF_Y
>>390230Wait, holy shit, I remembered more mid-00s stuff from this video than y2k but it's actually the other way around, I'm really sorry about that.
This is the last pic for now
>>390227it's ok anon, i think lockdown's slowly making everyone go crazy, normally i would have just laughed those posts off but the imageboards are starting to get to me lolbut yeah these are all very nice thank you for sharing
>>390266Glad you liked 'emGonna post some more now
This site is still alive and kicking btwhttp://www.ivibes.org
These fucking captchas, I swear
That's it for now
https://vimeo.com/5533941didn't realize there was an entire franchise of those ringtone mascots, lol
>>390268Ahh I loved these when I was kid
I don't feel like there's enough difference between this and y2k to make two separate threads but maybe that's just me.
>>390872they're similar but the emphasis is different imho. y2k emphasises inherently futuristic/space agey forms and revolves around metallic colour schemes, mid 2000s is more down to earth and uses more intense coloursboth are predominantly maximalist tho, as well as relying heavily on gaudily rendered cgi
>>389726is this considered skeuomorphic?
>>390231I can fucking HEAR this image.https://youtu.be/pGY4rAl4aE8
>>390074Would love for the more reasonable aspects of that style to come back.Love the band, too.
>>389627https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=xcOOjlfrZMQWho else used to cut out the tiny squares with phone wallpapers from magazines?
>>390074It screems "2000s school supplies"
>>390227MAN I remember all of the graphics cards with huge tiddy badass ladies on the boxes
>>390872As that anon before said, y2k was more about like, spacy hopeful futurism and stuff, with more of a hint of the 90s.The mid 2000s is like, consumerism and hip hop and earthy tones, with boho starting to trend more and cellphones/the internet starting to be co-opted by many more companies. It's also the early start of social media, and is the era you remember when thinking about Hot Topic or emo.

>>391596What a banger, and that hallway dance reminded me a lot of techno viking
>>391599I found it through some old flash animations.The music on this one is not as good but the aesthetics hit https://z0r.de/200https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YAyu9_NInDAI'm more of a y2k sort of person, but I love how that aesthetic this and early 00s flash had. Seemed like an evolution of that earlier era. Shame that it never lasted, and that flash is dead...
>>391596From 0:44 to 1:00 of that is so fucking tasty I love it>>391602>shame that flash is deadit hurtsI miss all the swf'sAny of that 00's trance is so nostalgic to me.
>>391603Any chance you have a playlist or something with all that 00s trance? I always need reference work, and for some reason, it's a lot harder to get info on that part of the 00s than any other era.
>>391604I was in a SoulSeek room thing a year ago and that's how I got most of my collection.Boot it up and see if there's someone who can help you there.I think this is like 2011, but pretty good nonetheless.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ObZykkEDL0I&list=PLtljIy7H0f4hAxuvW5LVIiqWNnBNgsu3N&index=2https://youtu.be/6EUYBWhVkKg

>>390945The kind that liked to pair off nuetrals with very vibrant primary colors? Typically minimal in design?

>>390230old synths, 90s hip hop beats, little doo doo doo's, and the voicemask you can hear on something like "I'm No Superman"
>>390269>>390270I think the worst things about this style of web design was that the colors were drab and the fonts were so vulgar. If those had been improved then this wouldn't considered so primitive.
>>390349The old forum website Youthink still looks like this. Hasn't changed since like 2008 (when I found it).
>>390083>uses dumb terms and names made up by y2k tranniescringe

>>392865that must be a much more recent music video than the tunes original 1998 release, no? looks like it had his 2006-2015 logo on it as well. this looks very y2k and not 00's though, perhaps they went with a somewhat retro style? should've posted this one in the other thread imo. i just posted a cover art of his there
>>392942fucking hell, the other thread was just now archived before i had a chance to reply to my fellow kai tracid fan. oh well.this cover for his debut album was peak y2k btw, absolutely love it.
>>393367>my fellow kai tracid fanI'm here anon
>>389726its a bit outdated but it actually looks fairly easy to use lmao
>>390228oh my god yes this is literally it. The epitome. Wooden background, photoshops Lighting FXDrop Shadow, outer glow, White gradients on everything. Random swirls and lines, non related vectors all over. What an era.
>>389627Now that the 2000s were 20 years ago, could we be getting a revival any time soon?
>>393441y2k revival is already happening, mid 2000s revival is starting to take off amongst basement dwellers but it'l be a few years before it hits the mainstream i reckon
Anyone have some Sony specific stuff?
Bless this thread
>>393385my dude <3who's the girl on the left? i know that's frank elrich aka asys left of kai and then hennes & cold to the right... warmduscher furthest to the right?
>>393672The girl is Melanie Di Tria, and yes, the dude on the right is Warmduscher (Thilo Markwort)
>>393677i just recently found out from reading on a vinyl uploaded to youtube that kai produced all of warmduscher lmao.
>>393831Yeah, he also co-produced many A*S*Y*S tracks, but I guess you already knew that.
>>394047oh yeah, were they a duo? because i remember reading on discogs that "kai left the project in 2007".
I can't describe what makes this so 00's based off of design, but this general style was so prevalent in Tech Deck Dudes, "dog ate my homework T-shirts", Gorillaz, and Mighty Beanz
>>394212Yeah, they were.Kai left the project because he changed styles and started making progressive tracks like Aural Border and Discreet Charm.
>>390238I used to make crap like this back in 2004, yes. good stuff.
>>394212damn, i was looking through one of the imgur albums posted recently and this pic caught my eye... https://i.imgur.com/982TOKC.jpg isn't that twan van loon from muzikxpress to the left?
Nintendo DS flashcart firmware skins are 2000s as fuck>>394733Looks a lot like him, although the eyebrows and double chin don't quite match.
>>389627You DO want Y2K aesthetic, you just don't want "metalheart" posting.
https://youtu.be/QXbWKgx51N8?t=3 and https://youtu.be/GFtrNFcJRu0?t=15The ones they have now are boring, but I guess these gave people seizures.
>>394849There was a proper y2k aesthetic thread when OP made his thread you stupid gorilla nigger, this is for mid-00s stuff
>>390231Voya Nui, right? Remember those lil shits with the Toa metru masks? fucking worthless they were

>>395606Update, the irc server is dead. Rip
>>395608man, the fact that so many irc servers and channels are dying is fucking sad
>>395612I mean the only reason its dead is cause the owner of the irc server itself is dead
white men's obsession with black kings are tiresomestop stealing our vibes
>>394775In general console modding stuff from the 00s really went balls deep in the aesthetic of the time

>>394781damn this brings back some deep sealed memories. thanks.
>>390269reminds me of this
>>390120This. Exactly this. Remembers me the ads of when I was a child in 2005. Holy F the amount of graphics and layers, it was amazing.

>>389627Adbusters was pretty comfy 2000s pastiche
>>390012 Nah anon. You can look at certain elements in movies, video games, music and general media that scream 2000s.It's harder to notice because for you (I guess) it's a more natural thing since you (perhaps) lived through all the aesthetic and see it as something natural. For example it's hard to pin down the 2010s aesthetic because we still haven't quite come out of it, it's still "natural".I don't remember the 2000s that well but I can personally perfectly pin down the plastic, edgy, produced, maximalist, clean and highly contrasted aesthetic of the 2000s.I think it's something more based on personal perception. But well you do you.
Anybody has any sort of book or study about this kind of aesthetic? Those bubbly japanese acid fonts
>>39827990s were maximalist. 00s were reminimalist. Late 10s to now is sort of maximalist
>>398279>>398296What's so confusing is that the 2000s is full of aesthetics. It's not something that's easy to simplify into one, since things went by so fucking fast. Starts as y2k which ends with 9/11, you get the remnants of the cyber aesthetic turning into things like >>391596The skater aesthetic mixing in with the rise of emo as some sort of counter culture to all the hip hop, then 80s nostalgia after 2004 because of the Iraq War turned media so gritty and grey. All that while the iPod smashes down right when people start to get tired of maximalism. This isn't even counting other countries or the impact the internet had on things. Honestly, the 90s were also the exact same way, but people just forget or choose what parts they liked.
>>390161He had the dick in Canada but it is so small and soft only kids who sat close to the TV saw it.
>>395615>ook ook eek bix nood
Try MGS4 and their fake tv commercials. Reek of mid aughts design. After effects and photoshop became more mainstream with amateur creators, hence spurring the beginning of YouTube
>>398773>ook ook eekhe said he's black, not dutch
>>390228Those dots that look sort of like paint splats take me back. Those used to be in ads all the time.

>>396560drain gang edits are not 2000s
What about notepad/doodle aesthetics?They don't fit neatly into a decade, as iirc their heyday were the late 2000s and early 2010s
>>389971anyone recognize any filters/plugins/technique put into this?
>>390232oh man I used to make this kind of shit with vector brush packs from deviantart
I strongly disagree even in the car scene you already see a car an say "this is 2004ish" or when a car is from 2010ish you can tell by the rims even or the interior with cheap mid 2000 plastic an fucking excess of Grey an shine objects
