Subject: THE 10s

Written By: GameDude2008 on 12/29/07 at 5:11 pm

What does everyone think about the fact that the 00s decade is almost over? How does everyone feel about the next decade being called the 10s? Am I the only one that thinks the 10s sounds weird? What advances to you think that we will have in the upcoming decade? Anyone looking foward to the 20s?

Strangely enough when I was a kid, "1999" and "the 2000s" never sounded that futuristic to me when they were ahead of us. They seemed like they were some time ahead, but it was the recent future nonetheless. Like from a late 1980s or early '90s perspective I logically knew it wouldn't be that long before they eventually got here and I'd still be really young. For instance, whenever I listened to that Prince song, it seemed like an exaggeration and I never really thought the world would cease to exist or any other doomsday prediction would actually come true.

But "the tens" really does sound almost sci-fi futuristic! I guess because it's PAST the first decade of the millenium, so it seems more unexplored.

^ No offense man, but I pray that NEVER happens. What we have is fine and I'm comfortable with ground cars. This is also why I love analog tech, and everything else I grew up with in my first, say 13-15 years. There's something old school and comforting about that.

I can't believe people as recently as the 1980s actually thought that sci-fi world would exist by now. You need like at least 50 years for that stuff and probably way more, not twenty!

Yeah I do fear change lol. ;)

I just get comfortable with the way things already are. The things that HAVE changed are hard enough to deal with, so I find solice in the few bits that haven't. I mean the basic way we live has been unchanged since the late 1960s, and pop culture developed the earliest traces of its current state around 1982. People even still dress in T shirts and jeans like they did back then, so I take comfort in that.

The way I see it, if you don't NEED to change, what's the point? I think having sci-fi elements and everything being electronic takes away from the human element and makes the world seem cold.

Subject: Re: THE 10s

Written By: Marty McFly on 12/30/07 at 7:02 pm

Things will always progress, but they do so in a logical way. Like advances in medicine, technology and, of course shifts in smaller things like fashion, music and other pop culture. That kind of stuff is hard to predict (albeit fun) beyond about 2-3 years from whatever the present time is.

Don't get me wrong, some progression is good, but if the quality of life works as it is, what's the point of changing it? I think too many people are anxious for a science fiction world of moving sidewalks, flying cars and robots who do all their housework. If you notice, almost any movie or publication that predicts the future always exaggerates it to how it really ends up being. This goes back as far as the old Jetsons cartoons from the 1940s (and they were predicting only about 30 years in the future, so we're long past that now!).

Also, Back to the Future II - although they knew they would be off with their predictions, so they purposely tried to make it comical and exaggerated. We're not far away from the real 2015 now, and of course it's nothing like they depicted it. If Doc and Marty (or, for that matter anyone else) from 1985 were here, they'd probably only guess it to be around the late '90s.

True, and I'm not suggesting we stagnate or stay in the horse and buggy days, but come on, you've gotta admit the '80s and '90s were the best. :)

For one, technology felt much less "obnoxious" and pervasive in daily life, probably because it was far less portable, outside of the Walkman.

On a serious note, that's horrible and I'm really sorry to hear you went through that. No one deserves that sh*t. I can understand how (for example) if a certain time reminded you of it, that you'd want to forget it.

I actually went through some crap in the early-mid '90s too (although I admit nothing on that level), like my parents temporarily splitting up, us moving around all the time, losing alot of the money we'd had before (long story), and my mom being with a jerk boyfriend on and off, so I get where you're coming from.


P.S. On the personal side, I suppose I meant it more from the standpoint of that most of the music I listen to (growing up as well as now) is from the '80s and first half of the '90s. Same for video games, TV shows and movies. It's also the time I first became acquainted with the world, so there's some comfort in what I'm familar with.

Hey Marty, long time no speak! I hope you've been enjoying the jokes I've emailed to you over the last year and a half! Apologies everyone, I'll get back on topic shortly. As you no doubt know, Marty, the last year and a half have been pretty horrible for me, and I haven't had much time for message boards. Things are improving now and I hope to be a regular here.

As promised, back on topic: the 80s and 90s the best? For what? For me personally, the 80s were the best, but that was because my football team (Everton) won everything in sight and I met and fell in love with the love of my life. For music I prefer the 60s (although I would say that music peaked in the early 70s). For technology, you can't beat the present. I can listen to CDs in the car instead of listening to cassettes getting chewed up in the mechanism of a car stereo; I can listen to music on MP3 while I'm in the gym; and perhaps best of all, I've just bought a Sat-Nav system. Despite teaching advanced driving on Sunday mornings, I have absolutely no sense of direction and that Sat-Nav system is going to save me so much money in wasted petrol it will pay for itself in no time!

The best decade(s) depends entirely of one's personal priorities. I don't think you can say the 80s and 90s were the best for everyone.

This decade is called the twenty hundreds? Most people I know are still referring to (for example)  "two thousand and eight". There is one newsreader on BBC radio who refers to (for example) "twenty oh eight" and it sounds most strange, because she's the only one.

I quite like this decade being called the noughties: retarded sounding or not, it's an amusing play on words with naughties. Perhaps the next decade could be the teens.

The 2010s will be a rather interesting time for me.  It'll be the decade that I truly become an adult, getting a real career, getting married (hopefully), etc.  Its something that I am both somewhat looking forward to and somewhat dreading.

It will be a very interesting time for society as well.  While video games and the internet continue to grow in terms of popularity, tv, movies, books, and even music (sales-wise at least...illegal downloading means that even if the mainstream music acts were as popular as they were in 2000, sales would still decrease every year) are on the downslide.  Add to this the growing conflict between "Old Media" (news companies, record labels) and "New Media" (un-affiliated online news sources, selling music online independently like Radiohead did and Nine Inch Nails might do) and we may just see the "digital revolution" revolutionize things in ways unimaginable to us now.

I also look forward to 2012 if only to see the internet explode with cries of "Mayan apocalypse in December 2012!" and have a Y2K style scenario with nothing happening in the end.

I'll put all my speculation aside though and say I hope the 2010s will be a good decade.  Of course, knowing me and this board, we'll probably be complaining about how bad 2014 is and how much better 2008 was.

You were also sleeping during the discussion about the start of the us involvement in WWII...  Pearl Harbor was 1941.... I'm a dec. 7th baby... I have lived knowing this historical date my whole life...


Yeah I was wide awake... it was probably that boring discussion on Nov. 30 about gay marriage before that that put me to sleep before th important WWII discussion.

The first rise of terrorism that is known on the mainstream news was on 1979...of course, even in Roman times there had must of been some type of terrorism.  Cain and Abel and Noahs ark sounds so terroristic, but it was unknown til 1979.


wow...even I wouldn't challenge Rice on something political... and I challenge everyone on everything...  :o

Lets see hostages were taken (by terrorists) at the Munich Olympic Games in 1972...
I know I suck at math but I am pretty sure that 1972 was before 1979?

What does everyone think about the fact that the 00s decade is almost over? How does everyone feel about the next decade being called the 10s? Am I the only one that thinks the 10s sounds weird? What advances to you think that we will have in the upcoming decade? Anyone looking foward to the 20s?


Hmm...what did people of the 1910s think?  And the 1920s?

As for as 2010 goes...only God knows; because no one else can predict a culture that changes every nanosecond.

Well, I hope all decades after the 2000s are more like the 1990s. Especially for fads and trends. And 1990s music was much better: http://www.vbox7.com/play:111508a1. Actually when I was not into music it seems to me that it has been better, and when I was really into it it sucked to me. However, since the beginning of 2008 I decided to 'unplug' myself from music fads and it may become better. Who knows?  8)

The Tens should give me a more rewarding career, possibly married (or not - shan't matter) and possibly with kids (or not)  ;D

I hope to do some world traveling after I hit my 30's (that will be in 2012).



Yeah, I'll be in my 30s in the 2010's as well. That once seemed like it was a long time away, but now it's just a few years down the road.

In a way i'm excited about the next decade, but at the same time I hate to see the '00s and '90s(the two decade's of my youth) become older and farther away. As much as I hate to think about it, the more years that go by the closer I get to becoming the old guy that goes around talking about how much the 'music that today's kids listen to sucks', and how much better it was 'back in my day'. :(
