Now that it's 2020, it's time to throwback the nostalgia of 2004. Here are some videos from that year to enjoy.

My pleasure! 2004 was one of my favorite years of the 00's. It had a feel good vibe to it. I'm hoping for 2020 will be similar.

This is the year my family and I went to Spain. Got sunstroke for the first time in my life, spent two days in bed feeling physically sick. Fun times.  ;D

This year was practically the height of my childhood (along with 2006). I made a lot of friends in 2nd grade and they threw a surprise 8th birthday party for me. Best year for cinema of the 2000's decade and it's not even close. 6th gen gaming was at its peak, and so forth. Michael Vick had his best season with the Falcons with an 11-5 record and a trip to the NFC Championship. TV was very balanced this year. 2004 got a lot of hate from kids of the 90's back then, glad that it's getting the love it always deserved.

It was an election year and Nickelodeon was airing educational commercials like clockwork. I particularly remember this one with its catchy jingle.

Just another year to me, the '04 election was the first I was eligible to vote in but the choices were so underwhelming I decided to skip election night.

2004 was also the year I started visiting this website.

Ahh 2004 - that year 40-something me lost a bunch of weight.  I briefly had a physical trainer at my health club - she put me on Atkins.  That was a big year for low-carb dieting.  (It was the not-too-long-ago mid-90's where low-fat dieting was all the rage; doing that just made me worse off.)  I was delighted to lose weight but then I couldn't figure out how to maintain it without staying low-carb; I did keep it off pretty well, but that's because I continued low-carbing and continued exercising.  For a few years.

I could certainly stand to lose some weight these days!  ;D  It's difficult to start up low-carbing, though...

Awesome! That's the year I became a member on this website!

(Before then, I only posted here as a guest; this was on the old version of the site...which went byebye in April of that year.)

I remember the low carb diet trend being all over the place in 2004. “Low carb” in 2004 is what “going green” was in 2008. Lots of advertisers and companies jumped on the trend. Remember Coke C2?

Anyway, 2004 is when my family finally jumped into 2000s computer technology. I started the year still using a Windows 98 machine with a Dial-Up connection and ended the year with a Windows XP machine with a cable modem. It was really fun going on newgrounds and ebaumsworld back then and browsing their now defunct “moron mail” section. BTW does anybody remember a site called webshots.com? It was like Instagram before Instagram.

2003-2004 was like the peak of my childhood. It was such a great year. I miss it so so so much 🥺

The 2004 presidential election was also the first election I really paid attention to. My parents have always voted for the Democratic Party even though we live in a red area, so I supported Kerry. When Bush won I asked my dad if we could move to Canada.  :D

It was also the first election I paid attention to too. There was a shouting match over it at school. I thought no one would support Bush in Canada but there were surprisingly many.

Remember the Superbowl of 2004? It was the one with the infamous wardrobe malfunction during the Halftime Show with Janet Jackson and Justin Timberlake. It was mentioned in some of the blog comments about last night's Halftime Show. Speaking of last night's Superbowl, the song "Yeah!" by Usher was featured in a commercial for Amazon/Alexa with Ellen Degeneres.
