2007 The MEGA THREAD

The fashion  The Fads  the Fails known as 2007! Some would say 2007 is the worst year out of the 2000s and a weird year at that . Here is the place to share you're thoughts on 2007 while looking at this little trip on memory lane.


Spears shaves Head and spears man with umbrella.

Brittney Spears goes crazy in one of the worst meltdowns
in pop cultures history

Umbrella becomes the 1# song of  2007  ella ella ey ey
Umbrella becomes the 1# song of 2007s debuting in March of 2007

Windows Vista faces major backlash
Windows Vistas 2006 release faces a major backlash in
2007 with many laptops with only 512 of ram being shipped with Vista
a 1Gb required system . Added to the fact because of Vista  apple had a field day
attacking it in ads

Myspace gets lots of Spam
in 2007 Myspace was infected with a spam outbreak which drove many ppl leaving the website

Iphone is released

Ps3 sits on shelves and no one buys it. (until slim comes out in 2009)
Ps3 fails to sell units and causes a sony backlash

Amy Winehouse  mania
You couldnt go into any store in 2007 without hearing a Amy winehouse song

Donald Trump vs Rosie  (face Palm)

Donald Trump starts a feud with Rosie Odonald for the
most of 2007 which leads to many networks such as E! having a field day

late 2007 bubble Burst housing market


Housing market goes down and there is talk of a possible ression in 2008
if matters arent taken into account


http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m5k5nmOxMA1r31m95o1_500.png

In conclusion 2007 sucked

2007 was mostly a filler year with nothing really notable
happening  minus the Iphone . This year consisted mostly of flops.  Note that
2007 is the last full classic 2000s year with 2008 only being half classic
and the later part of 2008 being  the 2008-2012 era. With 2007 being the last
FULL classic year its pretty much fails.

I actually like 2007.  It was the year I graduated high school, so I'm biased towards it.  It certainly had its fair share of bad points, but it has a soft spot for me.  That said, while the Rock music was good, I can't listen to a lot of Top 40 music from that year, even some of the stuff I liked at the time.

I think I actually have even more of a soft spot for 2006, which was a fairly good year for me, certainly the best and most comfortable out of my high school years.

2007 was not a horrible year.Worse than earlier years and 2005, yes, but I enjoyed 2007. 2008 was bad though, I did not like that year and that was the year the global financial crisis started. Also 2009 was a bad year as well, MJ died, Music got noticeably worse, and the economy was horrible. 2008 and 2009 were pretty bad years. Especially 2009 at that.  But 2007, seemed like a decent year in the 2000s.

2008 was pretty good not amazing but it was ok,  If the economy didnt get destroyed in November 2008  and did earlier say in Feb 2008  i would think 2008 woulda sucked.  2007 was so meh. 2005 was 10X better than 2007 there is no comparison lol.  That would be like comparing 1997 with 1995 in terms of pure peak nostalgia  1995 gets the nod every time .

this is what the  2002- mid 2008  period was. anybody saying this period was good  has a warped sense of perception . The 2000s sucked it took us back culturaly  atleast 35 years  or 40.  The general consensus is the 2000s were ass backwards and something really was wrong.

I don't know where you got the misconception that the 00s were a utopia without world wars, racism, sexism, or homophobia.  In fact this was more common during the 00's then than in the 1990s.

Personally speaking, 2007 was the best year of my life so far. I went on this big trip to Europe and I started Junior High which was probably the best period and time of my life. A lot of fun things happened. pop culturally speaking it wasn't too bad because i was right before the electronica and Autotune era started and there were still some great songs on the radio like Umbrella by Rihanna. The economy was in good shape that year before the financial crisis. It was the year I discovered YouTube and when it was still fun and iinnocent before Google took it over in 2008. Also Facebook was a fun thing to have and go on a couple times without it being a "need" like today. It was probably thelast year Disney had decent show's Overall it was just a great year.

I liked the year 2007 just fine. Several movies that I like hit the theaters that year such as Sweeney Todd, I Am Legend, 300, Enchanted, Ratatouille, Juno etc. Some stellar video games were released that year too. However, 2007 definitely wasn't my favorite year of the decade even if I did graduate from high school that May, but it certainly wasn't as horrendous as you keep depicting it to be.  ::)

By the way in your poll about people's opinion of the worst year of the 2000's, more people voted for 2009 than 2007. In fact, 2007 only received one vote (which I assume was from you) so I don't know why you act keep acting like 2007 is the common consensus for the worst year of the 2000's and seem confused when people disagree with you.  ???

Oh good grief. The economy plunged with the economic crisis of 2008, not 2007. Although, 2007 did foreshadow what was fixing to come.

2007 > 2008 & 2009 in my opinion.

@ Elr - Yes, the the music in 2007 had questionable quality. Then again, I didn't like many songs from the 2000's in general -- although there were a few I enjoyed. ;\

Luckily, the decade as a whole had some fantastic video games and movies.

you can trace it to  2006 and 2005 as each year the market got worse.

Yes, but 2008 is when the market really plunged downhill, not 2007. In a novel, the chapter on 2007 would be the foreshadowing of the economic trouble to come in 2008, not the climax.

In my opinion, the music wasn't ideal in 2007 or 2008, and, other than a couple of artists, I don't much like today's current popular music either.

I prefer the oldies.

Well if we want to be frank we have been leading up to this "recession" for more than just the decade of 2000's. It started long ago with corporation outsourcing and debts we began incurring over the years due to the American lifestyle of excess. ;\

Are those the musicians you like or something? o.O I don't know what 808s is just so you know.

Also, I am confused about what "yes it was" is referring to based on my previous paragraph. I'm guessing it's talking about how I said I thought the music 2007 or 2008 was not ideal. It's mostly a matter of individual taste in music at this point.

Okay. Interesting. I didn't know that. I'm not a big fan of Kanye West.

I'm not really that into the current music you could say. I like some songs by Adele and Maroon 5. I can't remember the last time I listened to a radio station other than WBCL which plays music from the 50's, 60's, 70's and 80's. David Bowie has been my favorite artist for as long as I can remember followed by The Beatles. I also really like jazz.

I'm not going to lie. I found that statement about the ball park franks funny. XD I laughed when I read it.

2007 was NOT a good year for me. First off, my car broke down and I almost had to quit going to college because it was my only available mode of transportation. The guy that fixed my car did a crap job, and it broke down again about a month and a half later, this time when I was on the interstate.  Later that year, I was in a car accident along with my parents and younger brother in their car. We didn't get seriously injured, but getting nailed from behind by a pick-up truck at a stop sign always sucks. I went to a Daughtry concert that fall with my brother and some friends (don't judge me, the tickets were free!), and we lost our car in the parking lot and had to wander around in the freezing cold for damn near an hour before we found it.

I suppose you could say I had alot of "car trouble" in '07. ;D
