Subject: Honestly, its hard to believe people were born in and after the 2000s

Written By: SpyroKev on 09/01/18 at 11:19 pm

I was just watching Friday After Next and the acting is so wacky, almost unreal and timeless. The 2000s are starting to come off as the fictional decade that was just one big gigantic movie, music video.

I can't comprehend how the 2000s even happened anymore.

Yeah. the fact we lived through that decade makes it special to us because kids today view 2000s tech as ancient. I suprisely had a very intelligent conversation with a 2009 born. He knows so much about wrestling to where most adults would be shocked.  I met some really intelligent 2000s borns lately and it's crazy that there were in diapers when we where in school.

Movies like American Pie 2 and Friday After Next really scream the cheese of the early 2000s, it really
looks like it could have been 30 years ago.

Blade Trinity and Soul Plane are other personal examples of how fictional the 2000s were. I can remember a regular day in 04 and now it feels like film and every day real life crossed over with each other.

Its amazing, honestly.

I think it feels that way because the early 2000s were so immersed in celebrity culture. I mean we still are today but it feels different. IMO back then, celeb culture still felt like "classic" celebrity culture, all grandiose and bigger than life. You had glam rap, mtv cribs, Pimp My Ride, grand performances at the VMA, BET and AMA awards, etc. Pop culture just felt bigger than life and fictional like you said.

We are starting to view the 2000s simlar to how people viewed the 90's back in 2010. The 2000s (at least the latter half of it) still feels recent because of high speed Internet, social media, Youtube and 7th gen gamming. The early 00s feels pretty retro at this point,  2003 was 15 years ago so it's safe to say that the early 00s is in the same vain as the 90's when it comes to being throwback.

This sound so accurate all of a sudden. Haha Your absolutely correct tho. It was extremely cool to have a celebrity idol then.

You definition see it, which I appreciate. Its not even hard to unnoticed with how scripted everyday life felt then. Haha

This sound believable. I mean, its doubtful teens today look at the 2000s as "modern." I hope the 2000s make it difficult in some way for most to see it as completely disconnected tho. In some categories, the decade should get a pass.

Honestly, its hard to believe people were born in and after the 2000s

It is certainly very, very, strange.

To me 2000 something is still the current era. Like If I see someone with the username "something rather 2002" for a second I assume they are 5 or 6, then I realise they are 16! :o

I remember filling out website forms for proof of age and 1990 being the latest year you could go to!

I find it so odd that someone born in 2000 is now an adult, or even a teenager for that matter.

I remember when if you were born in the late 80s then you were the up and coming "millennial" generation, who was the greatest hope, who could do no wrong, who would harness the power of technology for the future.

We were the "teenagers that adults don't understand" now there is another generation of "teenagers that adults don't understand"!

And so the cycle continues!

It's so strange to see your generation growing up, especially from such a modern era as the 2000s, where not a lot has changed since.

Nostalgia seems to come in cycles. The 80s started to become nostalgic in pop culture in the late 90’s with movies like The Wedding Singer. Similarly, 00’s nostalgia is starting to get big now in the late 10’s.

Romy and Michele's High School Reunion came out in 1997.

I would say that 80's nostalgia began there.

This post almost reads like an oxymoron coming from someone called "2000s Nostalgiaist". Unless your username is ironic or something..?

'00s nostalgia is not as big as 90s nostalgia from the late 2000s/early 2010s though. Although it's bigger than when I started to become nostalgic for my childhood in 2014.

I just hope that we won't be as bad as the 90's kids when it comes to this.

That "classic" celebrity culture was everywhere in the 2000's. From magazines, reality shows, movies, you could hear people talking about Paris Hilton, Britney Spears etc. Since the rise of social media, there was a shift on how people becomes famous. Getting likes, hearts, followers or other viral button in these fake virtual systems

Yeah the 2000s feels different for sure. I guess the technology gap between the 10s and 00s feels bigger than the one of the 90s and 00s. In the 00s while the internet was used most people used it casually compared to today, cell phones were very basic but commonly used, phonebooks was still common and television was still the primary source of entertainment.
