Post anything that encapsulates the early 2000s
>>3615900>>3615907These fucking SENT ME BACK. Good shit.
>>3615923Comfy isn't it.
>>3615896so THATS where I learned to be a total piece of shit to women from
these are great lol
The 2000s was an embarrassment of a decade.
>>3617052you haven't seen the 80'
God I miss it
>>3617002You sound kinda gay.
>>3617957Now that's scary.
hope this counts
>>3615900I wish I could grow up.
>>3618021The guy that chose to include this song in his games could not have fathomed how much of an impact he had on the internet
>>3618021Not sure what this is from.
>>3617957back when all it took to be scary was darkness, eery noises, and creepy dolls. now we have earrape jumpscares every 5 minutes of every horror movie
back when "esports" was just a bunch of nerds duking it out in hotel basements for bragging rights
>>3617380Oh god that bitch was so fucking annoying I hate her to this day
>>3620291>>3620310>>3620325>>3620337>>3620339>>3620341cs 1.6 was so fucking based. fucking zoomers have to ruin everything.
>>3615912holy FUCK, this takes me backthis seems 90s-ish to me for some reason, though.
>>3617604Song source on this one?
remember when rave music was actually good?
>>3617363>>3617380The 00's didn't exist in the UK, stop pretending.
>>3618021a different time...
>>3615907discovery kids was my shittttttt. i remember on the discovery kids website there was this rube goldberg machine game that was so god damn fun
>>3621040>30 seconds of fun that's been stretched out the entire length of the game343, take notes.
>>3621044the first 5 seconds of this make me laugh so hard
>>3615898What the fuck happened? There was a major push for funding towards kids with disabilities like autism and adhd during the late 90's and through to 2000's, then people just stopped giving a shit?
>>3618039I wish I'd had a childhood.
>>3620767Eh it happens to everything. Some day people are going to look back at games like Overwatch and blame gen-whatever for destroying a classic.
I'm 26 and none of these do anything for me, I felt nothing. Am I broken? Spent too much time outside? How old is everyone?
>>3621968hi 31, im dad
>>3618021>rub leg firstNO! I don't like this!>rub armOh that feels so good
>>3620802thats your example huh
>>3622139yes it is.
>>3621884It's a meme now. Which is sad.
>>3615907This and Ghost Trackers. I was too young to see Fries With That, but YTV growing up was the shit. So fucking great.
>>3622364Why do people like ytv?
>>3622950It used to have pretty good lineups.Then it got invaded by tween shows and never recovered
>>3620291>>3620767>disassemble comp on friday morning and bring it to HS in the trunk of your car>4 of your bros have done the same>anxiously fidget all day in school waiting for final bell, incapable of focusing on anything>bully gays and call them faggots without getting in trouble or being socially ostracized>school finally ends >pick up a case of mountain dew and bawls energy drink on the way to your buddy's house>his parents are gone all weekend>set up comps>LAN away some cs 1.3-1.6 without a care in the worldI truly pity zoomers who will never experience this.
>>3617957Hittin hard with this one, pete n pete would seal the deal
>>3617957Crazy show. I loved the vampire in the movie theatre one
>>3623020>calls others faggots>spends all weekend locked in a room with 4 other dudes.
>>3623020Are you me?
>>3623466we are all one. Early 00s CS was glorious to experience, and anyone who was lucky enough to do so will surely share the same fondness for it.>>3623441men who are comfortable in their sexuality have no problem spending quality time together in the absence of females.
>>3615896chill with the canted angles lmao what is this a cruise ship in a typhoon?
>>3616569>0:29think about that in terms of 2020 and tell me your spine isn't chilled to the bone.
>>3617604all these people are in their late 40s
>>3618021does this "game" still exist somewhere?I keep hearing people talk about it, but I've never heard of it
>>3623441Way to miss the point, cancer of the 21st century
>>3627324You mean late 30s
>>3627324math is hard
Hurts every time, bros
>>3627328Its not a game singular, its a bunch of games made by "meet and fuck" i think, a lot of their old games had this song on it
>>3617363>Will vince be coming out to? kek
>>3620767shut up old man.
>>3628637Shut up faggot.
>>3621040>30 seconds of fun that's been stretched out the entire length of the gameThis is all I ask of a modern shooter and yet imo we have the shell of it's former self currently letting employees enact retarded sjw mob rule with how the they approach lore/story and game design. Also choosing to champion outside issues that do not directly effect the bottom line while at the same time disregard doing real research into how said money is really spent.>b-but that warm fuzzy feeling!Go sit on a cactus.Trying to make a game "inclusive of everyone" leads to a terrible, no good, very bad game exclusive to a few.
>>3621884Amphetamines disguised as medicine has been the easiest way for the family or individual but also the most profitable for pharmaceutical companies.
>>3628696I wish more people would realize the harm the pharmaceutical industry has done to humanity as a whole.But no, gotta trust the experts and the doctors with absolutely everything, no way they could possibly be bought or influenced.
>>3623020>>bully gays and call them faggots without getting in trouble or being socially ostracizedeven being a freshmen just 10 years ago,I much enjoyed this
>>3628708Dude same, I'm about the same age as you and I remember when I was in high school there were only about 10-20 gay kids in our school of about 800. And everybody would riff on them about it. Thing is, nobody cared. Even the gay kids didn't mind it and would bant back or riff on the OTHER gay kids. Nobody really hated anybody and it's fucking weird to me that now kids could probably get expelled for the things we said. It must suck to be a kid these days.
>>3623020>bully gays and call them faggots without getting in trouble or being socially ostracizedgood times. I used to love holding weaker people in check. Even the skinny twinks were alpha back then because all you had to do was act it. Now you just smirk in someones direction and there's a handful of things you could get charged for
>>3617052>>3617336>he hasnt seen the 1290's
>>3627742Where is this from? It's been posted for a long time; surely there's more to it?
>>3630066You also have the highest kill count of any sniper in a major conflict and were never even injured in battle.
>>3631019Pretty sure it's a one off webm, looked and can't find anything more.
>>3629380This is YTMND prime
>>3631019>Surely theres moreThere was. There was so much more. There was so fucking much it hurts. People I will never see again. Freedom I will never know again. Love and comfort like Ive never felt again.Theres not more...anymore Anon.
>>3617604Whats this type of art called? Where you just watch people go about their day
>>3617604Whats this type of art called?
>>3615912AAAAAH WHAT THE FUCK, I KNOW EVERY SINGLE WORD. I HAVEN'T SEEN THIS IN LIKE 18 YEARS YET I INSTANTLY KNEW EVERY SINGLE WORD. BRUH THEY PUT FUCKING MK ULTRA SHIT IN THESE COMMERCIALS
>>3631715Still lifeBut i suppose in this context it would be closer to "Moving life"...
>>3631715Slice of life movies is probably ehat you're looking for.
>>3627324Maybe you shouldn't have dropped out of elementary school.
>>3631048Imagine actually thinking anything in that anon's story is implausible. Sad pathetic zoomer.
>>3615896I wanna' know who TF are these people in the goddamn 80s-00s that go to a diner to get cereal... so many of the commercials from this era pull this shit..
>>3615907Any idea on where I can get this entire series?
>>3633627>>3634059Man there was such a big push in the 90's - 2000's for kids to actually be healthy.Do they still air commercials like these or did everyone just give up and decide to be fat?
>>3634075There's still milk commercials, but I don't really know if there's anything like those exercise ads out anymore. I remember they eventually toned it down to a month/week-only thing, but they really toned it back after that.
>>3618021never thought i would ever find the source to those games
>>3634075These days, there are people that claim physical fitness is indicative of bad political opinions. Fitness is regarded as a cope for insecure men by other people that can't run a tenth of a mile without wheezing.
>>3631417You're living in times you will one day be nostalgic for, try to do something cool with the time you have anon
>>3630066one time in 7th grade one boy showed up wearing a dress, and man we gave him the bullying of a lifetime. it was a native kid too so if the same thing happened these days we'd get who knows how many interest groups and child therapists up on our asses
>>3618021where can I fucking find it
>>3627742>Pepsi Twistthey still sell this in my country lol
>>3634075you can't compete with phones, I guess
>>3615896I thought she looked older than 13 back then
>>3631715>>3631718Home movies or event videography. If you're a zoomer, before smartphones changed how we interact with the world, people would use camcorders to capture certain moments in life. We didn't share these footages with the world, like people do these days.The ones recorded at school, focused on upperclassmen, are called senior videos.
>>3635202This was how I thought burglary systems work - the house being shrouded by invisible binary numbers.
Isn't it also a bit spooky how it's commercials and advertisements that can invoke nostalgia
>>3627742>JunkbotHow in the FUCK is this just gone from the internet?
>>3634984Doubt it, only thing I will nostalgic for still being young. Other than that these times are trash culturally.
>>3623506Source for the song?
>>3634227I think it's 30 mins a day of active play, or something now, they still do it. They get funding to do "research," and make the ads. They change their message just enough, then compete with the other special interest groups for dough from the gov (tobacco and obesity for example, they also compete for funding to put out the same message slightly differently)
>>3631715I hereby am naming the art movement. It shall be called....>Normalism
>>3633627>>3634075Ahhhh! I see you guys missed the subtle propaganda in this video.Why would Nickolodeon have an advert to "play outside" instead of video games?Because video games are the competitor to Nickelodeon broadcast TV. They want you watching TV not playing video games.
>>3634984>ou're living in times you will one day be nostalgic for,This is a meme to make people copacetic and distract them from the fact that the current culture is indeed factually shittier in almost every measurable way for almost every person except the very very rich.
>>3636779God I remember people would not shut up about this moment on TV.
>>3621839I've mentioned this game on /v/ in flash game threads but nobody's ever responded. So happy there's at least one other person who remembers that gem. The only other Rube Goldberg machine game I've ever played was on DS and the idiots didn't even include a level editor or free play mode.
>>3622364Remember Mystery Hunters?That things garbage cgi Black Shuck terrified me as a child.
>>3620777A lot of things from the 00's where also things of the 90's.Just like how a lot of things from the 90's where things of the 80's
>>3634644Do you mean body building, or actual fitness?Because those aren't the same thing
>>3639676Mars Pt 1 by Komorebi
>>3640346Loved Mystery Hunters
>>3634984I tell myself this everyday. I've had a good time here and there over the past few years, but the state of the world since ~2018 has really just stiffened everything. Everything is owned by big corp, now everyone is so health conscious and there's a sexual liberation revolution. It ruins the "magic" that you look for when you transition from your adolescence to your teen years, and then as you mature into an adult. Today's youth aren't able to experience that optimistic future-feeling
>>3640865If a nigga try to hassle me like this I'll be telling him either break my fucking knees or quit calling
>>3620767it was a fun era, especially with LANs. But as a game CS:GO is way better. The mechanics, the speed, the maps, the strats, its an immensely better game while still maintaining the soul of 1.6
Just before youtube was the main video site.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-hBb642NSycpls convert, im lazy right now, needs to be preserved for board culture however.
>>3643582youre fucking high. The source engine will never be able to replicate the depth of the movement mechanics of the goldsrc engine.
>>3628675>30 seconds of fun that's been stretched out the entire length of the gameDoom Eternal was the last modern game I can think of that actually nailed this
>>3615898I remember my big brother having to go there, and I used to make fun of him for it. He would always kick the shit out of me for it.
>>3617052Early 2000s was good, WTC attacks changed the world into a terrorist hunt, which turned the world into "you can't do this to bearded people", which turned the world into "refugees welcome" liquid shit.The middle east was a mess before 2001, but muslims ruined it for the rest of the world, along with radical leftist anti-nationalist lunatics.t. 34yo
>>3643927Yeah he was an athlete and I was a gifted nerd, It wasn't until I was older I realized how shitty it was of me to make fun of him. he's a good guy
>>3625050>giant shit-thing killed by super cookiesOh 90s, you so crazy :'D
>>3620310the fucking buying sounds while the vid is still black instantly got me
>>3625400that jelly always looked so good
>>3627742For some reason I noticed the newgrounds slide for the first time. Those were the days...
>>3635110yea i get home movies. I just really enjoying watching people go about their day, as if im a fly on the wall; videos that are older are better. Wasnt sure what that "art style/genre" is called
>>3634075you cant have a bunch of low effort infomercials educate people on fitness. you have to have a functional education system to do that.
>>3644884Damn Cartoon Network was the comfiest network as a kid hands down
>>3637379>Optimus Prime hype-ing the shit outta TAS BatmanIts so good.>Friendship ended with superman>Optimus Prime is my friend now
>>3633680McFly got cereal in Back to the Future at the diner too.
>>3615896Wow dude...You had to cheap-shot me in my nostalgia, didn't you?
>>3636871Not sure if you were alive in the 90's, but nickelodeon actually had a straight solid block of literally nothing on their channel for an hour or so other than time-wasting ad space for kids to "go out and play". Not saying they didn't compete with games, but they also actually sacrificed air time for their marketing campaign.
>>3643979There was a point in time where I thought this commercial would last forever, since it played for nearly a fucking decade.
>>3633204>the size of dougs noseNever noticed this. Was he supposed to be jewish or something?
>>3635604Life was unironically better in the 90's and early 2000's...Before the banks brought the global economy into a recession, before before Russia invaded Georgia, before our entire manufacturing industry was skeletonized and shipped off to China, before people were more concerned with getting likes on facebook and infecting the world with their social justice slacktivism with real problems getting attention solely due to the vain and egotistical parasitizing it for more personal fame and notoriety, before political correctness started being implemented into law, before children were being taken away by police for not injecting them with life-altering puberty blockers...There's a civil war coming, and it will be long over-due.
>>3621015Holy fuck this one got me>I'll call today>You'll call now>...I'll call nowshit is implanted in my brain
>>3646465idk about the civil war part but shit sure as hell isnt like it used to beim sure that's just part of getting older tho
>>3643979Wow forgot about this one. The 2000s were awesome. I can't describe the feeling. It's like 2003-2012 was a different time. Post 9/11 but pre political revolution
>>3616569took 8 entire posts this timethis website may be improving after all
>>3633002Ah, LAN parties
Sometimes I think what it must had been a kid from NYC in the late 90's up to early 2000's, ignoring the 911 of course, tho I know that change everything, something like Hey Arnold? btw I'm not even american.
It's a good thing I'm not a Sudoku fan because these threads always give me legitimate depression form how the world once was and what post millennials have missed out on. Really brings a single man tear to your eye when you stop and really think about it.
>>3646258Fuuuuuuuck this just woke up a dank lifeless part of my brain containing childhood memories.
>>3620809What happened for ten years then? I must have missed it
>>3615896>Part of a good breakfast>The "good breakfast" shown is this gimmick cereal, toast with chocolate spread, a pint of milk and another pint of orange juice
>>3617380My mum all but forbade me and by sibling from reading Tracy Beaker in school or watching it, she said it was absolute tat. And you know what? She was dead right.
>>3648102Average American food.
>>3621884People are lazy fucks and figured out that you can half-ass it by pumping kids full of drugs instead.
>>3634644>>3640424Most leftist fat-bodies mean bodybuilding when they talk about fitness. Most people either don't give a shit about fitness, or think it's a good thing.
>>3623020Had some friends like that in hs, most of them are still virgins in their late 20s.
>>3646903It's actually weird how car commercials use music from their target's youth. In the last month I've noticed a BMW commercial using Blink 182 and a Toyota commercial using Outkast. Weird shit for my age group to be a highlighted consumer market.
>>3616569https://youtu.be/YEchwYNUppwThis song sounds very very similar and it has gorge bush on the album art wtf
>>3644884Holy shit do you think Fred was tryna smash
>>3616569I remember watching the 2nd plane hit live in a privately owned prison. This is the defining moment of all humans' modern history. Good luck lads.
>>3617604The innoscent uncertainty and optimism forlorn and yearned for by naivity are a better day than today.Well done fren>>3627742This needs to be a nostalgic compilation series dedicated to every decade and its degeneration.The zoomer/boomer meme is a timeless tactic of d&c to into commy. >Nuke the nuclear senpai, senpai.
>>3620809would you really go on the internet and tell lies?
>>3645414Nickelodeon tried too.
>>3652728Honestly that comes off as a pale imitation of what Cartoon Network was doing.
>>3652756Not really. Cartoon Network did a block in full CGI. All this was, was just futuristic "LIVE ACTION" promotion bumper exclusively for nicktoons network. Also all of Nicktoons was dedicated to just experimenting with all art styles and animation studios.
>>3652565Smells like 2002.
>>3628716stop being a piece of shit then
>>3615898>sending your kid to a black personlol
>>3654291Never go full retard hillbilly.
>>3628716>10-20 in a school of 800There was about 1200 at my high school (2005-2007) and there was less then 5 obvious gays. wtf has happened in just over a decade ffs.
>>3634935god i wish that were me
>>3616569everything went to shit after this.
>>3621890overwatch = classic lmaooverwatch is only big because the standards have been lowered and it's published by blizzard so every blizzdrone plays it. I went in with the hope to be a great game but then got terribly bored. I've never felt the urge to play a game and then feel immediately like shutting it down and uninstalling after starting a match.The game can have fun moments but overall its an unbalanced piece of shit that just wants to reward casual gamers with the feel of being "good".
>>3654371to add to that, it's the same that plagues games like heroes of the storm as well.There is no substance behind it like in a game like Dota (which is shit now too cause they ruined it with updates). It's just about making people have fun and be instantly rewarding. People I know play heroes only to play their favorite heroes and feel like a god for some minutes. There is nothing challenging or rewarding about it.A good game lets you fall on your face, improve, fall on your face, get better, get decent and slowly master it. How can you ever truly feel rewarded if it never was a challenge? It's a mere illusion.
>>3631718the song for those who are interested:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vzLZf6fi87o
This thread is fucking sad man.It's over for humanity. If you didn't come of age and live your life between the 1950's and 2010's it's a wrap.
>>3634059you want the Dyou need me
>>3652565What is the name of this song?
>>3617957Scared me now more than it did when I was 6
>>3618021fucking kek, didnt know that games song was an actual thing
>>3654979I like these commercials, they're charming. I wonder how effective they were though? Like, did any inner-city kids have a flashback to the homebeez commercial when they first got offered weed?
>>3646465 I agree that the 90s and early 00s were btter but this>before our entire manufacturing industry was skeletonized and shipped off to Chinawas happening for at least a decade before the 90s.
You guys watched a lot of TV growing up huh
>>3615896i swear i saw this in '99
>>3621039>>3621040>>3621044damn i watched this so many times back then. hold on to your potatoes. the wheel doesn't stop.
Remember how responsive tv remotes were on those old CRTs? I remember when I was a kid i could change channels/volume instantly with no delay or lag time even when giving multiple commands in quick succession. These days it feels like you have to wait a half second or more between every input if you want the remote to actually function.
>>3655052That's such a specific thing but now that I think about it you're totally right.It was definitely around when flat-screens became the norm, I don't know enough to say but I wonder if there's an actual reason for that or if it's some sort of planned obsolescence thing? It's been shown that technology just isn't built to last anymore.
>>3654953Thank you anon.
>>3616569anyone know the song?
>>3623020>>bully gays and call them faggots without getting in trouble or being socially ostracizedSo basically you're ethically bankrupt?
>>3655067>>3655052It's because you are being spied on by the manufacturer.
>>3629380I heard this pic before I clicked!
>>3629380wow totally forgot about this meme until now
>>3655011You might be thinking cookie crisp.
>>3643979this fucked me up, this one just really brought me backWOAHHH, the cartoon partman... I think I used to see this all the time on Nickelodeon as a kid thanks for posting dawg
>>3628716yeah, it's fuckin wild man...I remember the days when jokes were jokes you know.We all used to poke fun at each other for SOMETHING, but it was in good spirits almost all the time, and we cared about each other, felt close even. Like going to school in Australia before political correctness, we would say the wildest shit, riff on kids, sometimes things would go a bit too far, but if a kid was legit crying and shit we'd all just pull it back and be there for them.It was... banter... i remember when it was normal to... literally joke around with people and just say offensive shit for lols but everyone just fuckin... KNEW what a joke was and we'd laugh about it and move on cause we were all comfy and we knew that none of us actually hated each other and we were just having a laugh. Crazy that something that basic isn't as prevalent anymore bro.
>>3636875I think disconnecting from the current culture is a vibe. Like, I used to take it as such a given that I had to be really active on social media and go on it every day... and now that I hardly go on, well, nothing really changed, the floor didn't fall out from underneath me. I literally lost next to nothing from being out of the loop. But gained so much mental space. Like when you just step away from all the bullshit and narrative and the media controlled and fueled shitstorm that's spread all across the internet, you realise that it's actually a pretty good time and we have access to so much dope shit.Just gotta step out of the cesspool and you see all kinds of shit. Like fuck, there's free university courses online, you can download free game engines and make your own games, you can buy anything online and get it delivered, you can 3d print shit, you can experience VR, get old movies back when movies were actually good and watch them...So much awesome shit is inexpensive or free right now, but the hard part is just unplugging. But when you just unplug from the fucking cesspool of all this fake, controlled media shitfuckery it's like... woah, with a broadband connection I can actually do almost anything. Just gotta steer clear of dumbasses, and the sense of social obligation to participate in whatever tribal shitstorm were getting pushed into believing we have to be part of today. Culture is fucked in 2020, but what's crazy is most people don't realise that they don't have to participate in it, and by opting out there's actually no real consequence save for a pretty huge quality of life improvement.
>>3635235In 2001 they would put break detectors on your windows and magnetic detectors on your doors. I think it got to be too much and a lot of places made people tone it down because I also remember a lot of scrutiny of home alarm systems calling police all the damn time and it got to where they barely responded to them. My state just changed the laws so if someone comes into your house you can basically kill them without scrutiny, and it put a nearly complete stop on burglaries as it wasn't worth the risk, and pawn shops ask a lot of questions.
>>3635235>>3656756What I'm getting at, is to people with no background or knowledge of what technology was really capable of, that, the house basically was shrouded in invisible binary numbers of electric, computer home protection like some shit out of iRobot.
>>3656540Kill yourself faggot.
>>3617604I know this isn't my school but it looks just like it. I don't know these kids but they look and talk exactly like kids I went to school with, fucking surreal.
>>3623020I'm a zoomer but we got to do this shit in class on the school computers during robotics. Idk who did it but cs 1.6 was basically installed to every computer and we'd just hop on after we done what the teacher told us.
>>3618021https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZWFko8g3GgwNow this makes me feel.
