Subject: How Many of These Things Did You Experience?

Written By: mach!ne_he@d on 04/13/17 at 12:57 pm

In another thread, the2001 posted this collection of key Generation Y moments, and I thought it was about as succinct a list as I'd ever seen.


-Debut of The Spice girls
- shift in MTV from Generation X to Generation Y (TRL, CRIBS, Pimp my Ride, Super Sweet 16)
-WWF attitude era
-The Bill Clinton Scandal
-Teen Pop (NYSNC, Backstreet, Jessica Simpson
-9/11
-Myspace (social media 1.0)
-Snap Rap
- AOL AIM
- RAZR Phone era
-  80s nostalgia
- Juicy Couture
- SURF trend
- Birth of online gaming,  XBOX 360
- Early youtube


The more I looked at it, the more I began to think that a list like this would be a great way to really put the whole "where does Gen Z start?" debate to rest. The more things on this list you experienced firsthand, the closer you are to being a "Peak Millennial". For example, I experienced every one of them, so I would be 100% "Peak Y". That fits with my longtime theory that the absolute peak of Generation Y is roughly 1987-1990.

My 1991er brother said that he does not remember the debut of the Spice Girls, or the transition of MTV from Gen X to Gen Y culture, but he does remember everything else, meaning he experienced 13 out of the 15 items on the list. That's roughly 87% "Peak Y", which is about where 1991 should be, I think.

OH OK, I knew of those shows growing up but never really watched them. It was for the 16-25 age group and I was only about 5-9 when they aired.

I always saw 1988/1989 as the very exact middle of the Millennials/Generation Y.

See, that's the reason that I just can't quite accept 1999 (and perhaps even 2000) as being fully "Gen Z". Even though you guys were kids in the '00s, you can still remember more than enough of the decade's culture that you are familiar with the "Millennial experience". To me, the oldest people I would consider fully Gen Z would be those that weren't old enough to experience anything on this list. Maybe 2003 borns and later.

Me too. That's why I feel personally as late Gen Y (but I also accept being a Y/Z cusper).

Nah it was like this whole Beach vibe that lasted from 2003-2008, Shows like The OC, Hills, Laguna beach played up on it, girls would wear stuff you would see on a beach, Surfboards were on commercials and etc,  think FOX TEEN CHOICE AWARDS ect.
It was a pretty big deal that does not get talked about much tho.

I really didn't like Fox's Teen Choice Awards, so not really. I think you were talking about teenagers being surfer dudes and gals, then I'll might get it. I think maybe that was totally different for me, since I saw the beach with a different perspective.

No, you was born after the Bill Clinton Scandal. The Bill Clinton Scandal started in 1998 and ended in early 1999...you was born all the way in December 1999.

Also, you don't remember the Juicy Couture sweats that some many women wore (a few still do)? :o

1. I didn't experience the debut of the Spice Girls, but I remember them being popular in the late '90s. (0.5 points)
2. edit: Oh wait, I did experience those reality TV shows. (1 point)
3. Yep, I remember watching WWF in the summers. (1 point)
4. Yes yes yes!!!!! Er, I mean, I recall hearing some teen pop jingles.  :-[ (1 point)
5. I remember I was confused at why it was wrong to love two people at the same time. I love both my mom and dad, and there's nothing wrong with that! (0.5 points)
6. I didn't watch the towers fall on TV, but I remember the general time around 9/11, yes. I more distinctly remember the plane crashing into the Pentagon. (0.75 points)
7. I remember when MySpace, Bebo, Friendster, Hi5, Orkut etc. were popular, and I was of prime age (13 to 15/16), but I never used them myself. (0.5 points)
8. Ugh, yes, I remember snap rap. (1 point)
9. I got AIM in 2006 to talk to an American friend, but I had to have a US ZIP code. I stole hers, but she was the only friend I had on it, so I used it for about 2 weeks before I stopped logging on. I primarily used MSN. (1 point)
10. Yeah. One of my friends kept his Razr until 2012 LOL (but then it broke and he bought a Blackberry, an even bigger LOL) (1 point)
11. Yeah, the '80s nostalgia in the early 2000s. (1 point)
12. I had to look that up. I guess I remember it. (1 point)
13. I'm going to say I don't remember any surf trend, but I don't live near any oceans. (0 points)
14. Yep. The Xbox 360 was the first console I bought with my own money! But my first experience with console online gaming was on my DS, with Mario Kart DS. (1 point)
15. Yes, I discovered YouTube in late 2005. It was very... wild. (1 point)

Results: 12.25 out of 15 (81.7%). I'm a bit off the peak.

edit: I thought by MTV transition, you meant the '90s transition into non-music programs. But if we're talking about Pimp My Ride and Super Sweet 16 then I was definitely the prime age for that LOL.

Slowpoke since you was born in 1993 you definetely wouldn't have been too young to remember those MTV shows. TRL started in 1998 and ended in 2008. The other shows (CRIBS, Pimp My Ride, Super Sweet 16, etc) all started airing in 2000s.

Don't get me wrong, I don't pay attention to fashion either. However, those Juicy Couture tracksuits were so widely worn that I had to take notice.

6. 9/11: Yes/probably the first major political event I could remember clearly. Although I didn't fully comprehend the impact it had on the country at the time. I just remember it from a personal connection living in NY at the time (1)

8. Snap Rap: Yes/unfortunately... (1)

9. AOL/AIM: Yes/I made my first AIM account in 2007 I believe. Rarely used it though (1)

12. Juicy Couture: Yes/I Remember girls my age wore those track suits during middle school and early high school (1)

-Debut of The Spice girls - Yes. I wasn't even in kindergarten, but people were constantly talking about the Spice Girls whenever I went to my local kid's P.E. center around 1997 and 1998.

- shift in MTV from Generation X to Generation Y (TRL, CRIBS, Pimp my Ride, Super Sweet 16) - No. I was too busy watching Arthur and Disney movies like Hercules and Toy Story at the time. I did watch a bit of MTV in 2004, but by then, the shift from X to Y was long over.

-WWF attitude era - No. I have never watched wrestling in my life.

-The Bill Clinton Scandal - No. The only thing I knew about Bill Clinton while he was President was that he had the same first name as my dad. I had no idea he was impeached until I read a kid's encyclopedia in the early 2000s.

-Teen Pop (NYSNC, Backstreet, Jessica Simpson, etc.) - Yes. I knew teen pop primarily through my sister, who was actually younger than me at the time but loved Britney Spears and the Backstreet Boys. She also fell in love with S Club 7 through their television shows, despite the fact that their only hit in America was "Never Had a Dream Come True."

-9/11 - Yes. I mostly remember coverage being on every channel on television for several weeks following the attacks, as well as lots of patriotic music.

-Myspace (social media 1.0) - Yes. The first time I heard about this place was on the Ataris' website, where lead singer Kris Roe was complaining about somebody's lies on the site. I hardly ever used my MySpace account, but I did get to learn in advance from one of my favorite eurobeat singers whether or not an upcoming song of hers called "Dance Dance" was a Fall Out Boy cover (she told me it wasn't).

-Snap Rap - Yes. Ughhhh, how the hell were "Lean wit It, Rock wit It" and "Laffy Taffy" more worthy of airplay in the United States than "Biology" or "I Said Never Again (But Here We Are)?" 8-P

- AOL AIM - Yes. I used AIM, though not AOL. All I remember about AOL was how f**king much they advertised the service on Cartoon Network in the early 2000s.

- RAZR Phone era - Yes. I had a flip phone from 9th to 11th grade before switched to a Blackberry.

-  80s nostalgia - Yes. And I was (and still am) totally immersed in it, especially beginning around 12th grade.

- Juicy Couture - No. I wasn't yet adventurous about fashion or cosmetics like I am now.

- SURF trend - Yes. I didn't surf, but as a San Diegan, I was surrounded by surfers.

- Birth of online gaming,  XBOX 360 - No. I've never owned an XBOX and online FPS's aren't my thing.

- Early youtube - Yes. Lots of delightful memories.

1996 is the last I can see that would be able to remember the event with a likely chance because they were the youngest to be at elementary school when it happened. 1997-1998 some may, but most likely they probably won't (I never truly went to preschool, so judging by this perspective it'd be unlikely for them to remember it). 1999 is the trickiest, as I've only heard about two cases (Sharksfan99 being one of them) of people born in 1999 remembering the event.

It also depends on location. I lived in a rural part of Northwestern Pennsylvania (about halfway between Chicago and NYC in terms of distance), so therefore, it would be incredibly hard for me to remember the event.

See, that's the reason that I just can't quite accept 1999 (and perhaps even 2000) as being fully "Gen Z". Even though you guys were kids in the '00s, you can still remember more than enough of the decade's culture that you are familiar with the "Millennial experience". To me, the oldest people I would consider fully Gen Z would be those that weren't old enough to experience anything on this list. Maybe 2003 borns and later.


If Millennials begin in 1982 and end in 2002, wouldn't 1992 be the exact middle? If it ends in 2000, wouldn't 1991 be the exact middle?

Hmm, depends on your tastes.

I loved both the movie and the show, but depending on who you ask, the TV show either turned the generic and bland movie into a crazy and fun show, or took the awesome movie and devolved into its own cheesy fanfiction. The show had more shipping drama and love triangles (JimmyxCindy wasn't a huge part of the movie, but it was prominent in the show), more crazy jokes, more insanity (like Carl giving birth to a jellyfish). It took everything the movie had going for it and took it far - some would say too far.

I hope I'm not! I liked the Jimmy Neutron cartoon when I was a kid, but I always felt the show's premise seemed kind of 'barren'. Idk how to describe it, but I guess it felt like the story should've just ended with the movie. The original movie was also hyped up to be the second coming, so that could be another reason why it impacted me in a big way. The movie's plot is simple and enjoyable, the tv show would occasionally have overarching story plots that sometimes confused me.

The show is still decent, don't get me wrong, but the movie is just more badass and epic with more of an "adult" feel to it then the show. Feels like they should've made the show first, then the movie afterwards; that would've been a more satisfying watching experience I think. Heck, maybe you'd like Jimmy Neutron better if the franchise progressed in the same way (small-scale show as a light appetizer, then big epic movie that they hype up as the second coming to serve as the main course).

So, you agree with me that they should've done the "big damn epic movie" after the lighter TV show, right? Not vice versa. I think that would've felt like a better payoff. If the movie came after the show, they wouldn't have to change much.

Just tweak the dialogue's mentions of "Frank" in favor of "Hector" and trash the unfunny Frank live-action scenes in favor of animated short expositional scenes with Hector. Also, make it a prequel to explain how Drix got into the body. And change some other small things too, then you're done.

It's like the Rugrats Movie being made after most of the Rugrats episodes: having an epic movie after a light TV series feels more hype and awesome than vice versa.

Just tweak the dialogue's mentions of "Frank" in favor of "Hector" and trash the unfunny Frank live-action scenes in favor of animated short expositional scenes with Hector. Also, make it a prequel to explain how Drix got into the body. And change some other small things too, then you're done.

It's like the Rugrats Movie being made after most of the Rugrats episodes: having an epic movie after a light TV series feels more hype and awesome than vice versa.

(pardon the bump, I've just gotta ask Reignman this question)

I agree 100%.

All of them because I heard The Spice girls at one point. I saw girls wearing Juicy Couture. The surf trend was already here since I'm in CA. I recall seeing 80s nostalgia in movies, games, and music full of references. As for the Bill Clinton Scandal, I might have watched it due the fact it was the local channels.

Goes to show you that I hardly pay attention to female fashion. I still consider it as a NO since I didn't participate in that, unless I was female (or old enough). It may have been 2000's teen culture or something. I remember when Rocawear was very popular though.

Well, I think that he was just asking if you knew the trend back in the 2000s.

1. I dont remember them specifically debuting, but I remember them being a thing all of a sudden, people talking about them, hearing their songs.

2. Yeah I remember these things coming out. One weird rule my parents used to have was that I was only allowed to watch MTV and maybe discovery channel when I was grounded, so I used to watch MTV music videos a lot. Even caught some of the later Daria episodes.

3. I remember wrestling action figures being really popular, but I didn't really get it, and they weren't that popular where I lived.

4. Nope

5. Yeah I remember people bashing it most of the time, particularly my parents

6. I remember it just. I was the same age my mom was on the kennedy assassination, and like her, the thing I remember most is they sent us home early from school, also the news footage all day long.

7. Bebo was more popular at my school, but yeah I remember myspace

8. No clue what this is, rap wasn't very popular where I live, but maybe I'd recognize it if I heard an example.

9. Yup

10. My mom had one of those. I was so jealous.

11. Yes, in a huge way - they used to play 80s anthems like Final Countdown and songs like Sweet Dreams multiple times per day, in addition to 70s disco hits. I actually just assumed they were all current songs. I thought Daddy Cool was recorded in the 90s for a very long time, the 70s/80s nostalgia was that huge.

12. No clue

13. Yeah I remember this. There used to be a lot of shops that sold that kind of stuff, in addition to skater stuff. Just california culture stuff in general

14. Oh yeah totally remember this. I remember the original xbox live, on the very first xbox, and it was awesome. It came in a physical starter kit box cost £40, and I think at the time it was a one off payment until they introduced the monthly/annual thing for the 360, though I could be wrong. People used to talk on their microphones all the time as well.

15. I remember my best friend at the time showed me the star wars gangster rap, the first video I watched on youtube. Would have been fall 2005 I think.

12ish then

1. They debuted in the 90s. I did listen to them when they were big (and that world tour movie came out) and my older sister is a big fan.

2. Everyone in Grade 3 used to watch all those shows on MTV and MuchMusic in the mid 00s  ;D

3. There was a fair amount of buzz for WWE/F. Was never personally into it.

4. Never paid much attention to politics until the Harper & Obama era. The Iraq war politics was entertaining/disappointing to watch from afar especially since I don't live in the states.

5. Yes, in the early years, I'm honestly glad it died with the 90s as it was cringy.

6. Think I caught it on TV when I was 4.was pretty surprising. People everywhere gave condolences to America.

7. Heard about it mostly when Facebook was starting to overtake it around the turn of the decade. I do feel that it characterizes social media in the 00's better than Facebook.

8. "Crank dat", "This is why I'm Hot" and some Lil Jon, that was about the extent of its popularity. Gangsta rap, Crunk and Alternative rap (50 cent, Kanye West, Jay Z, Lupe Fiasco, Ghostface Killah, The Game, Eminem, Common, Chamillionaire, Mos-Def, K'naan, Madlib, MF Doom, Talib Kweli, K-os, Rick Ross, Bun B, Pharrell, Kid Cudi, Pusha T, T.I, 3 Six Mafia, Ludacris and Lil Wayne) were much more popular at the time.

9. Might've caught the tail-end of its popularity just before MSN messenger surpassed it. Never used it myself but I have family members who did.

10.  I just grouped it in with the flip phone era.

11. 80s Nostalgia was HUGE then. It showed up in fashion, TV shows, movies, games, and music. People saw the 80s as the untouchable godly decade and saw the 90s as the nihilistic decade where it all went downhill. I remember commercials selling nostalgia CDs from the '50s-'80s I always wondered then why the 1990s never even got so much as a nod.

12. Never had much of an issue here ;)

13. Always used to group it with the sk8ter trend. Always had a laidback nature.

14. Online gaming(on wii and 360) was basic compared to now. There was more focus on single player experience and less reliance on the idea that the user had their console hooked up to the internet, so developers had to actually finish games before releasing them and putting out DLC after release. Since the 2010 Xbox 360 S model with its built in Wifi, the way gaming was handled changed.

15. The "Sprout and the Bean" music video was the first ever youtube video I watched. At the time people were just uploading videos for their friends and other miscellaneous stuff.

Generations don't die, I mean like catered to in pop culture, GEN Y lasted from 1997- Late 2013.
Things of that generation are of:

-Debut of The Spice girls
- shift in MTV from Generation X to Generation Y (TRL, CRIBS, Pimp my Ride, Super Sweet 16)
-WWF attitude era
-The Bill Clinton Scandal
-Teen Pop (NYSNC, Backstreet, Jessica Simpson
-9/11
-Myspace (social media 1.0)
-Snap Rap
- AOL AIM
- RAZR Phone era
-  80s nostalgia
- Juicy Couture
- SURF trend
- Birth of online gaming,  XBOX 360
- Early youtube


Is anyone here sad that era is now gone? It was a pretty long era. We are 100% in generation Z right now.


No means I didn't experience it, yes means I did.


1. No
2. No
3. No
4. No
5. Only experienced a little bit
6. No
7. I remember it being talked about and saw my cousin on it, I'll count that as yes.
8. Not much, all I remember hearing was Crank That so barely.
9. No
10. Yes
11. No
12. No
13. No
14. Yes, but I'd say original Xbox was the birth of online gaming with Xbox Live's launch in 2002.
15. Yes

5/15

I remember my childhood very well, I just didn't experience two thirds of these things.

Why not? (just asking honestly)


A few reasons. We like living lives that are as relatively stress-free as possible and have enough free time to still go out on dates or hang out. And we both decided early on in our relationship that we really wouldn't be the greatest parents. It's too much responsibility and something a lot of people rush in to because they feel like they "have to" become parents. It's just too much to handle. I've taken care of kids in my family before and my brother had kids at a really young age so I've seen the toll it takes on both the parent and child when you're not a fit parent. I just couldn't give my all for a young being and be the best I can when some days I get so stressed out and find it hard to do anything for myself.
