Actually, August is technically still the mid part of the year, since January-April is early, May-August is mid, and September-December is late, but you could say August is mid-late combined since it's still in the 2nd half of the year along with July.

First year without my grandpa, kids turned into buttheads, remaining kids networks I checked out rebranded, tv SUCKED, and wrestling was at an ALL TIME LOW! MJ died, the RAMS sucked, moives were crap the first half of the year. Everything had just changed that year.
Music and sports was good though!

WOW; 2010, most of 2014 and 2013 are the only years of my life of this decade I have actually enjoyed. 2012 CULTURALLY was probably the best.
I't maybe because you were still a kid during those years and entering your teen years were a rude awakening possibly. ;D

I spent almost my entire high school career in the late 2000s, I got in September 2006 and graduated June 2010. Ask me anything, and I'm sure you'll be happy to be a 2010s teen ;D

It's weird, you're a 2010s teen that wants to be a 2000s teen, and I'm a late 2000s/early 2010s teen that wished the 2010s teen portion was a lot longer ;D Although being a 2010s young adult is a lot more fun. Maybe it's just best to play with the cards you're dealt with? ;) It seems no era is perfect.

Yep, late '00s teens are the last group to be in high school (or late middle school/8th grade) to not have things like smartphones and didn't have the issues that the 2010s have. Nowadays we seen people in elementary school having smartphones and being exposed to things like SJWs and other 2010s things.

The definition of dudebro from Urbandictionary describes late 2000s teens to a T, the first one is from December 2006 and the second from September 2008. The first definition says 16-25 y/o, but you can take it down to 13-15 y/o as well and imagine it 10x worse. That's your late 2000s teen dudebro.



White suburban males, usually 16-25 years of age, hailing from anywhere, USA. Characterized by their love of College football, pickup trucks/SUVs, beer,cut off khaki cargo shorts, light pink polo brand shirts (with collar "popped"), abercrombie & fitch, hollister gear, and trucker hats. Favorite bands include, but are not limited to, O.A.R., Jack Johnson, Dave Matthews Band, Avengened Sevenfold, The Fray, and often crappy radio rap (i.e. Nelly, Dem Franchize Boyz, D4L, etc.). Dude bro's are incredibly insecure in their manhood, which makes them: insanely jealous of their girl friends, overly macho, and laughably homophobic. currently, there is no cure for being a dude bro.
6 out of 10 guys at any predominantly white mall in america.

a "dude" can be positive,
a "bro" can also be positive,
but a "dude bro" is never a good thing.

4. On dates he only talks about his car, how fast it goes, what’s under the hood, the fact you race it and think it impresses girls
5. When a man drinks beer and refers to it as brew-skis
6. a man who high-five his friends, co workers and girlfriends
7. a man who calls his friends Dude, Bro, Buddy and will often add a “ski” to the end of if (broski)
8. men who buy shirts that cost $100 to show off your muscles

The teenage girls of the late 2000s weren't as bad. I can't think of anything bad they did except of course there were always the few bad apples who thought they were on the cast of Mean Girls.

It's just that I don't really like this decade's pop culture. There's barely anything on that isn't boring as hell to me. The mid-late 2000s entertained me like it was an amusement park. Myself being happy as hell, along with the Internet and TV being awesome back then. Ever since late 2011 when Steve Jobs died, it was really depressing as f*ck to me.

Dudebros still dominate the AAA-gaming console industry (because they're the only ones who reliably buy games), but for the most part I think their influence is dead, and replaced by "nu-males" or hipsters or whatever you guys have been calling me :P We own this generation yo.

Same here. There's nothing wrong with technology, but we need to take a step back and go out and do something fun. Even more, I was going to make a difference in the world regarding social justice; however, thanks to SJWs, I can't do that anymore as I would basically get lumped with them.

Hipsters I can deal with. Dudebros annoy me.

Late 2000s Internet was okay. Only thing it has going for it is YouTube Golden Age, and Wikipedia community not being uptight and having many anonymous editors. But it was still rampant with trolls, moreso than today. The general population of the Internet was a lot younger, and there weren't many people over 25 on the Internet. There was no Spotify or Netflix, heck, most movies did not release digitally period. Piracy was so rampant, and the sites were teeming with viruses. First it was Limewire and then later Megauplad came. You have to remember Internet speeds weren't as fast then, it used to take me 6 hours to download a movie, until I upgraded my speed in 2008. Also as a language learner, I absolutely detested the fact that most foreign companies hated the sight of money in the late 2000s. International commerce is so much easier in the 2010s and I'm grateful for that.

Late 2000s TV and 2010s TV is the same thing :o Most people, pundits and critics consider both to be a part of the same Golden Age of Television.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Golden_Age_of_Television_%282000s%E2%80%93present%29

The Golden Age of Television (2000s–present) is a period marked by the production of a large number of internationally acclaimed television programs in the United States. The period began in the mid-2000s.

Funny think that that it hasn't been 10 years yet the late '00s is already very different than the mid '10s in terms of internet.

Same! But development costs these days are so high and require 200-300 people teams. And just look at what's happenning to Nintendo, the anti-dudebro gaming company. Nobody is willing to take risks anymore. It sucks but I understand why things are the way they are, which is why I mostly game on handhelds. But even that is dying out in favour of mobile gaming. :'(

As mentioned before it's why I like indie games. Which for those of you kids/teens in the late '00s you may have noticed the rise of indie games around that time. Indie games are cheap to make a cheap to buy. And a ton of the games take risks by including things that you wouldn't see in AAA games. I tried to stick with handheld consoles for a while (Nintendo was always good with handhelds as I really do like the 3DS), but mobile gaming will replace actual handheld gaming systems in the future. Nowadays these big AAA games that require +200 people (I've seen games go up to 700 people) and need to appeal to the dudebros since they're more of them than there is non-dudebros. You'd have games like GTA, Call of Duty, or Destiny that sale around 5-6 million or more copies while games like Pikmin 3, Mario Kart 8, or even Super Smash Bros 4 doesn't get anywhere near those sales anymore.

Hopefully this crazy trend dies. But seeing how the dudebro targeted games are still successful it comes to a point where I'm not even sure if the trend of dudebro targeted games will die. So all I can say is to trying getting an interest in indie games. You'll find that nearly all the games aren't dudebro targeted and aren't made by dudebros.

I've been thinking about getting into PC gaming. The cost of entry is high, but I see many great Indie games being released for it, not to mention that they're cheap!

Oh right! I forgot that the best platform for indie games is a PC and not everyone would have one. Indie games are on consoles as well, but PC is where a lot of them usually go to first or exclusively. Lately I've been playing games like Cave Story, Team Fortress 2 (it's not an indie games and it's an FPS, but it's colorful and has lots of personality and charm.), Ori and the Blind Forest, Dust and Elysian Tale, Fez, and Skullgirls. These are the games I'm playing now, but there are tons of indie games that I loved and can't wait to get released like A Hat in Time (a game inspired by Banjo Kazooie and Psychonauts) and Cuphead (A game inspired by old 1930s cartoons).

Dude, a lot of those games are old! ;D I played Cave Story for the 3DS, great game! I know some of my friends are addicted to TF2, so I've avoided it for the most part ;D I've played Fez and Skullgirls, great games! I'll definitely check out the others you listed, although I won't be getting a new PC for a while.

Speaking of being similar to Banjo-Kazooie, my friend told me to check out this game yesterday and it looked super cool!

There are tons of new indie games that came out, but I was mostly just telling you what I was playing at the moment (I play both old AND new games). If we're talking new games then try things like Undertale or Firewatch. And there are tons of new indie games coming out in 2016-2017 such as Cuphead, A Hat in Time, Lobodestroyo, Yooka Laylee, No Man's Sky, Inside, Toren, Below, Ghost of a Tale, Hyper Light Drifter, Stories: The Hidden Path, Freedom Planet 2 etc. If you ever have the time then I'd recommend checking out these upcoming games.

2006-2009 was the peak of the Naruto craze. Naruto was the dominate anime of the late 2000s as Dragon Ball Z is to the Early 2000s. The Naruto Ultimate Ninja series is also very memorable and very nostalgic today.

If it was for 2009, I think it was legendary for the movies. There were Where The Wild Things Are, Avatar, The Blind Side, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Coraline, Watchmen, Star Trek, Princess and The Frog, The Hangover, and Inglorious Basterds. However, with TV transitioning to amuse people for the 2010s, it kinda sucked. The only shows that were good at the time were Chowder, Flapjack, TDI, Speed Racer: The Next Generation, and The Mighty B. But at least it wasn't 2012, where EVERYTHING sucked.

I couldn't even stand being depressed, while everything was all happy-go-lucky at the time. What's worse about it was the f*cking shootings that happened during the year. They're the reason why gun stores should get more background checks, since they're going to have mentally ill people shooting up places. It's drastically horrible. I can't believe that conservatives don't give a sheesh, since they're nothing more than gun-loving f*cktards.

So many golden memories!  8)

The movies and music were great at the time, and that summer was great for me too! I remember watching Obama's inauguration on TV being excited. 2009 was a bittersweet year overall.

I was extremely depressed in early 2009, even suicidal. I got laid off in April 2009 and that's when things started looking up. I hated that job and the severance was amazing ;D

2009 being bittersweet is right. 2010 is definitely the first full year of awesome.

I was depressed many times throughout middle school, and even some moments in high school too. I got over it quickly though. 2010 & 2011 were epic years for the early 2010's pop culture, and I miss it greatly. Being in New York City for a whole week in Summer 2011 was surreal!

When I look at the Billboard Top 100 for 2010/2011 I feel so proud, like "that's my work"  ;D 2010/2011 were absolute gold for pop culture. Amazing TV shows, amazing movies, amazing music, amazing fashion, and just a very down to earth and communal post-recession attitude. It's only been 4-6 years and I'm already in love with the era  ;D

I really liked late 2008 pop culturally, even if it was terrible in my personal life. All The Single Ladies and I Kissed A Girl were the first pop song I liked in a long time. Lady Gaga was good too but I didn't get into her until later. I thought she was rather provocative.

The Obama election was also an amazing time to be in high school. I remember his posters being plastered everywhere on lockers and chanting "Yes We Can" and "Hope" in the most random circumstances ;D We actually had a big party after Obama won. I was so happy to see Bush finally gone and closing that dark chapter in human history.

The Great Recession casts a rather dark tone to the era though. I think I had a Communist phase around this time LOL

He was very popular internationally, and we were very angry at Bush. And not 'a Canadian', everyone was into it.  ;D I went to a big house party afterwards.

I went to a party after the 2012 election as well, fwiw. A lot of Canadians are very into American politics. Ours is kinda boring.

Even though I agreed with the late 2000s starting mathematically in September 2006, I think it started in 2007. The culture of the late 2000s didn't start until the spring of 2007, since that's when YouTube and other sorts of social media (besides Myspace) became popular.
