Subject: Are you stuck in the '00s?

Written By: Brian06 on 05/26/17 at 10:21 pm

A lot of times especially now I find I'm stuck in an '00s frame of mind. Like to me it seems when things were just right, modern but not too modern. I always used to be obsessed with technology but now I'm slightly annoyed by it getting to be too much. I just don't get the 2010s at all, I don't like how people talk and act today. The last time that was "ok" was the early '10s, but today is absolutely horrible. It's amazing despite the many bad things about the '00s with 9/11 and the Iraq War, how good it seems to me now. I kind of just bundle all the '90s and '00s together as my good ol days tbh. Americans seem like they just hate each other now. It's a very ugly environment. I just try to pretend that 2017 doesn't exist and my mind is still in 2004. Music doesn't matter as much to me these days because the environment is just so horrible, even if music was better I'd still hate today anyway. It's weird how I've started disliking shows in HD and stuff, it almost looks too real. I only watch the retro TV channels today and I can't stand to watch anything current. Part of it is getting older too I'm 30 now and my formative years were from the late '90s to the early '10s and as things deviate from that, it just doesn't make sense to me. I'm more set in my ways. The '00s still have like that last bit of true old schoolness that I'm glad I got to live through. The last time when Americans still sorta seemed united as a country and still believed in America overall even with party differences. Idk it just depresses me so much how crappy today is (especially in America).  :(

I'm only (basically)18 years old and I sort of feel the same way....I'm not "stuck in the 2000s" but I definitely feel like we are heading into a highly digitized (way more than ever today) and robotic world in the next 20-30 years. The world seems to losing the "homely-ness" that it had before the 2010s and I feel sad that we might be heading into a world less "unique".

No, I'm stuck in the 1990's. I believe that the 2020's will be the decade that we truly become a 'technology society', at least in the west. But I also don't think we're at the Jetsons....yet, at least not until 2080, or whenever.

Honestly, in my own delusional  ;D head it's still 1998.

I like the '90s too but I still love the '00s. I know some still don't like the '00s here but I actually always did. I just hate the 2010s, especially mid and late 2010s.

Well, we probably NEVER live like the Jetsons (for many reasons)....it's more likely for WWIII to end the world tomorrow than have humans live like The Jetsons.

Yeah it's not just pop culture to me, it's social and political stuff too I'm talking about because it's just a dominant part of what today is about. I just hate how hateful people are today. The '00s was getting divided but as I said I think people still kind of believed in America in general and there was more unity, today is just a mess.

Yeah agreed that was just disgusting to target young girls like that. It's like everyday it gets worse. Today we can't even unite against terror because one side wants to kill all muslims basically and the other is too afraid to talk about Islamic terror because of extreme political correctness.

Exactly. You're either some right wing nut who thinks everyone in a hijab is "evil" or you're too afraid to talk about actual political issues due to fear of being "offensive". The divide is too much.

The mess in the Middle East extends way BEFORE Presidents #43 & #44. The mess that we see in the Middle East today extends back over 100 years (101 years to be exact - 1916)....and it all started with the United Kingdom and France.

The 2000s are starting to feel like a blur to me. I think I'm slowly forgetting them. Anything before 2010 is starting to feel like a while ago, which is weird because I never thought I'd be saying that. I'm forgetting my childhood/teenagehood ;D

2009-2014 were my favourite years, so it's not that long ago. My personal life in 2013/2014 was not the greatest, but the world still felt stable overall. Now that I think about it though, 2014 was when things started derailing. 2015/2016 were really rough too. Both my summer those years were ruined. 2015 because of the refugee crisis and 2016 because of the Nuremberg rally complete with Nazi salutes they had down south.

2017 is somewhat calmer though. The far-right wave in Europe is receding, there are less terrorist attacks (Manchester notwithstanding), ISIS is in steep decline, the economy is firing on all cylinders, and last week was a huge blow to Qu├ębec separatism so I'm happy about that. I'm feeling optimistic again, which is weird because that's not how I imagined this year going.  :-X 2016 felt like a year of shouting and division, I hope 2017 becomes a year of healing.

I still primarily buy my music on iTunes as opposed to streaming them. I far prefer the feeling of owning my music, plus not having to worry about my Internet connection wherever I'm going. I also still don't really use apps very much, even though I own an iPhone.

I don't mess with apps either. Haha Its my sister that's pushing me to that transition. I also still just download music off of free download music sites like MP3Skull that I don't think is still active.

Absolutely I'm still stuck in the 2000's. I just listened to Meteora all the way through a few days ago, and I ain't ashamed about it!

But I think it makes sense, though, that I would be stuck in the '00s, the same way that it makes sense that my parents are still stuck in the '80s to a large extent. My high school years were 2001-2005, and that's the era that I still lean to in most ways. Even from a tech standpoint I'm still somewhat stuck in the '00s because I rarely use social media, and mostly just use my cell phone for calls.

I get you. The 2000's and the 90's both have a comforting vibe in today's world. I also know what you mean about avoiding HD channels and things like that. It's almost too much and it feels as though TV has lost something with that high definition. Whenever I watch something in 2000's TV picture quality that was originally shown on CRT TV's it always gives me a good feeling.

I can fully relate.  This mindset persisted into the early '10s but started to fade around 2012 or 2013.  For me, 2008-2011 were perfect years.  Everything since late 2012 has been flat out awful.

As for technology, I understand what you are saying. I still prefer desktop PCs and can never adjust to using a phone or a tablet as my primary way of accessing the Internet.  I am on Facebook because I pretty much have to be, but I don't have a twitter, an instagram, or anything else.

I don't agree about HD TV though.  I wouldn't want to return to 4:3 SD.

I am still undecided if this is all because I am getting older, I live in a small town I don't want to be in, or because of Donald Trump.  It might be a combination of all three.

I have felt this way about the '90s for a long time.  I like to reminisce about my '90s childhood, but it doesn't seem as 'real' to me as the '00s do.  My own "prime happiness" was 2008-2011.

I wanted to wear baggy jeans, but my Mum wanted me to wear skinnier jeans, because they're the "in" thing at the moment. :P Admittedly, 1999 still feels as though it was only 10-12 years ago. I don't think of the Late 90s as being 18-20 years ago.

In my eyes based on the trends of that year, 1999 really only feels about 8-10 years ago.

1997/98 feels a little longer ago, maybe about 10-11 years ago.

1988 on the other hand I could believe that it was very long ago (more than 20 years ago)

I'm surprised that you guys born in the late '90s don't think that 1999 seems like a long time ago. I can only speak for myself, but 1989 has always felt like a million years ago to me because my memories from that time are very vague.

Well that's because you turned 2 in 1989. I turned 2 in 2001 and it depends on the day but it either feels like a long time ago (16 years ago) or only a little more recent (like 10 years ago).

However, to compare how we feel since us '99ers turn 18 this year.....Did you a 1987 born feel the same way when you turned 18 in 2005? Did you actually feel like you had been alive for 18 years?

Yeah, that's a good point. I remember that it did feel weird turning 18. It's like this mythical age that you anticipate your entire childhood because you know you'll be considered an adult, and then when you finally get there it's an interesting feeling.

The first thing I did when I turned 18, at about 6 AM on July 12, 2005, was go to town and buy a pack of cigarettes just because I could. It was pretty cool at the time.

In where I live, you can't really smoke until age 19 or 21 (depending on town or county).

The most recent year that really seems "completely devoid from the modern age" is probably 1988 from a historical context - in 1989, the Berlin Wall fell down, and the Communist regime in Central and Eastern Europe rapidly declined. Both of which probably could give us clues on how today would look like, and some people even argue that the 21st century and modern age culturally began in 1989. Also, whenever I see films/shows that were made in 1988 and before, they seem to have a sort of "feel" to them (I know this sounds a little silly). Even stuff like Legends of the Hidden Temple, which premiered in 1993, had better recording/filming quality.

The most recent year that doesn't have any significant ties with today is a little more difficult to dissect.

Some may say 1994, due to the fact it was the last year before Windows 95 and the Internet came out.
Some may say 1997, because that was the last year where Al Qaeda was not really a threat yet until the US Embassy Bombings took place in summer 1998 (this is very arguable).
Some may say 1998, due to the fact that there wasn't the Euro yet, and it was the last year before Generation Y culture became a lot more significant than Generation X culture.
Some may say 2000, due to the fact that it was the last year before 9/11 took place (as well as last year before War on Terror), the last year where the Internet rates were under 50%, and the last year before the iPod came out.
Some may even say 2001 - The Euro didn't really become widespread in Europe until 2002


That's a good topic. I agree with 1988 being the last year that doesn't feel connected to the modern world because of the collapse of the Soviet Union from 1989-1991. All you have to do is compare the 1988 presidential election to the 1992 presidential election to see how much the world changed in those four years.

The last year to me that feels really separate from 2017 is 2005. I know that seems late, but I say that because of the rise of YouTube in 2006. I think sometimes people really underestimate how big of a thing this was. First YouTube came along, then streaming services like Netflix and Hulu followed, and before you know it we were living in our current world or almost any TV show or movie being available on-demand. A lack of YouTube, and online streaming services in general, really makes 2005 seem dated to me now.

I think sometimes people really underestimate how big of a thing this was. First YouTube came along, then streaming services like Netflix and Hulu followed, and before you know it we were living in our current world or almost any TV show or movie being available on-demand. A lack of YouTube, and online streaming services in general, really makes 2005 seem dated to me now.


1989-1991 probably, if anything, in recent history had more change than any other years.

1988: Soviet Union, Germany is still divided, Central and Eastern Europe were still under Communist rule, Cold War still went on, glam metal is very popular (peaked in 1987-88), crack was an enormous problem, World Wide Web didn't exist yet
1992: No Soviet Union, Germany is one country, Central and Eastern Europe were no longer under Communist rule, Cold War is no more, glam metal is the laughingstock in the music world, crack use was declining, World Wide Web already existed (though almost everyone didn't have the Internet yet)

Thread back open

The most recent year that really seems "completely devoid from the modern age" is probably 1988 from a historical context - in 1989, the Berlin Wall fell down, and the Communist regime in Central and Eastern Europe rapidly declined. Both of which probably could give us clues on how today would look like, and some people even argue that the 21st century and modern age culturally began in 1989. Also, whenever I see films/shows that were made in 1988 and before, they seem to have a sort of "feel" to them (I know this sounds a little silly). Even stuff like Legends of the Hidden Temple, which premiered in 1993, had better recording/filming quality.

The most recent year that doesn't have any significant ties with today is a little more difficult to dissect.

Some may say 1994, due to the fact it was the last year before Windows 95 and the Internet came out.
Some may say 1997, because that was the last year where Al Qaeda was not really a threat yet until the US Embassy Bombings took place in summer 1998 (this is very arguable).
Some may say 1998, due to the fact that there wasn't the Euro yet, and it was the last year before Generation Y culture became a lot more significant than Generation X culture.
Some may say 2000, due to the fact that it was the last year before 9/11 took place (as well as last year before War on Terror), the last year where the Internet rates were under 50%, and the last year before the iPod came out.
Some may even say 2001 - The Euro didn't really become widespread in Europe until 2002

Yeah, that's a good point. I remember that it did feel weird turning 18. It's like this mythical age that you anticipate your entire childhood because you know you'll be considered an adult, and then when you finally get there it's an interesting feeling.

The first thing I did when I turned 18, at about 6 AM on July 12, 2005, was go to town and buy a pack of cigarettes just because I could. It was pretty cool at the time.

Yeah, I fully agree.

BTW, just asking...are you still a smoker?

I guess for the Soviet Union and Soviet Bloc countries...life before 1989-1991 feels almost ancient but outside of those countries....1988 is not so disconnected from 2017 (especially in the US).

You can't predict the future either. Also, there are many reasons why we will never live The Jetsons:

1. The Jetsons featured very clunky technology that was based off of 1950s and early 1960s technology. Unless, we go into a period of retrofuturism about the '50s & '60s then....no.
2. The Jetsons was a product of both the Space and Jet Age.
3. Many physics related problems to the technology used and how the buildings are able to float.
4. Climate change (like I said earlier): Currently, we can't stop climate change from getting worse and obviously, the effects of climate change will hinder the chance of living like The Jetsons for a very, very long time (and it's already a long way off).

The only part of your statement I agree with is your last sentence (even though, we still can't predict the future and don't forget about climate change).

Also, I didn't predict the future in the same way that you are. The Jetsons was very unique to the early 1960s....it was how many people in the early 1960s viewed the future...we will never live like that. It's just the truth not a prediction.

No, I can confidently say that we won't live like them in our lifetimes. Once again, The Jetsons were a product of their time...the early 1960s. We are in the late 2010s now (2017).

I don't think that's clearly the case for The Jetsons. For one thing, the show takes 100 years after the original premiere of the show. It would've been completely different if we've lived in 2062 now, since we would probably have more distinct devices than the actual Jetsons. Not to mention that the technology based on The Jetsons were 50-60 years old, so the actual technology in 2062 would've been related towards holographic mobile devices and advanced virtual reality.

I wouldn't say that the technology from The Jetsons is impossible. It could take a long time for it to produce though, which would probably be made before 2062, depending on the capabilities of said devices. It's just that The Jetsons' point of view towards the future would be different, since the technology was like a parody of mid 20th century devices. Also, why 5000 years for humans?

I said I think it will happen, and you should have said you don't think it will happen rather than saying it's impossible and using fake science to back up your point. Nobody knows to what extent global warming will affect us. And it absolutely not impossible like you say. Most people will agree they can't say anything for sure in the future.

Claiming that I'm using "fake" science and being ageist. Nice, I think that solves it. I am done here. Thanks, conversation OVER!.

I wouldn't say that the technology from The Jetsons is impossible. It could take a long time for it to produce though, which would probably be made before 2062, depending on the capabilities of said devices. It's just that The Jetsons' point of view towards the future would be different, since the technology was like a parody of mid 20th century devices. Also, why 5000 years for humans?

Yeah it will definitely be different but I think one day in the future we may develop technology for it. No one knows when humans will go extinct. We may find a solution to climate change in the future as technology progresses, who knows.

Sorry I didn't mean to come off as harsh. I think this argument is pointless anyway because no one knows what the future will bring, hopefully we can agree with that and settle it there.

Yes, we can agree on that.

To be fair, I hope they do find a solution for people to avoid an apocalypse from certain climate changes. We could eventually live in a different planet (like Mars), or basically live in underwater domes with factory-made air. Who knows?

I'm surprised that you guys born in the late '90s don't think that 1999 seems like a long time ago. I can only speak for myself, but 1989 has always felt like a million years ago to me because my memories from that time are very vague.


1989 was 28 years ago.

You're right. Message boards/forums aren't the 'in' thing anymore. Also, people might be burnt out by them too.


I'm not.

Umm no you don't know from climate change and physics. What the heck does that have to do with anything? Even the most intelligent scientists don't know exactly how long it will take for climate change to destroy the world... So that is not a good argument at all and you DON'T know anything for sure.

No we will live like the Jetsons one day. It is inevitible. Technology keeps progressing, so you need to admit it. Why are you so against it? Nobody even conceptualized the internet 50 years ago, so this lifetime will also be futuristic and we will live one day like the Jetsons, just understand that that is possible and it will probably happen. Yoi do not have any other good arguments otherwise. Climate change is a bad argument, nobody knows how long that will affect the world. This world can still be here 5000 years from now.


If we continue on our current trajectory, the effects of climate change will be catastrophic by 2100  :-X

That isn't proven, it's just a theory. It will get worse, but the time when is not known for sure.

Rising sea levels aren't really a theory, it's happening. And we can project how much the sea levels will be at certain temperatures by using historical data. Miami and New Orleans have already gone past the point of no return, the question is can we save places like Hong Kong, London and New York in time too.  (at our current pace, the answer is no) :-X

I can get optimistic for the future, but anything past 2050 is a question mark for me.  ;D

No it is not proven that by 2100 the human race will be extinct. Nobody knows that. That is what I'm saying.

Oh, yeah, true, I don't think anyone's saying we'll be extinct by then, but life will be a lot more difficult compared to now.

Extinction will take a few more decades than that.  :-X :-X :-X :-X :-X :-X

I'm still stuck in the 2000s. Especially with the series I wrote that take place in the peak of that era. I recently listened to some songs from Usher's Confession album and that s** took me a walk down memory lane of 04.

Yup. Saints Row 2 is still the best game especially for features, and 2010s music and fashion are too conformist; guys are wearing their hair short as it's cool in this decade and their music and style looks too appealing to the religious fundamentalists if you don't give the lyrics to them for some of the songs at least. Technological development has pretty much slowed down and stagnated (Apple nearly killed off pen computing and nearly everything now is an incremental improvement; mobile games feel too much like 2000s flash games and are overwhelmingly linear), and politics are just the same as before, if not a little bit worse.

Overall, to me, the 2010s is regressive or has slowed down innovation.

I still listened to the radio and the Hip Hop and R&B station has been noticeably playing 2000s songs as the throw backs. I'm glad to not be missing this.
