Don't you mean pro-freedom republicans?

Oh the highschool nostalgia for time periods weve never experienced. How the opening of the world inside our minds likes to play tricks on us and make the "unknown,unexperienced" the "long gone" all the more appealing. I like to compare it to the Halo effect that is observed in human behavior. You seethe attractive, amazing things that have come out of that generation and assume everything to do with that time period is equally as amazing. This is caused by a cognitive bias, the tendency for an impression created in one area to influence opinion in another area.


Bitch I just wanna be Rick James for one day and get some jheri curls.



Edit: I love you tho <3

To answer this thread though... I loved the music and the peace of mind of the 90s. But I could *not* go back to the technology. Haha.

Floppy disks and large heavy monitors... And the computers held a fraction of your smartphone's RAM or processing power in general.

Interestingly enough though, the console games from the 90s were nevertheless good enough that they're still being played to this day. In fact professional speedrunners are playing classic games from the 90s... People who grew up in the 2000s are speedrunning everything from Link to the Past to Mario. Who'd have ever thunk it.

Also, I prefer the TV shows of the 2000s followed by the 2010s, moreso than the 90s.


I remember my first laptop. Mechanical keyboard, 32mb RAM and a 128MB HDD. GOD IT WAS A BEAST!

Nah. The 80s was an awkward time, and it needs to stay back where it is at.

'best part about the 80's no SJW's, and people went out and did things, instead of having their phones glued to their faces.


Oh God, this is so true. We also didn't have official rooms where people went to cry when their feelings were hurt. We had Rambo dammit.

Being born in 83 I don't remember much of the 80's other than Aqua Net Hairspray and all the women in my family having huge puffy hair lol.


Still one of the more useful adhesives, AquaNet. Lots of people use it as a coating on the build surface of their 3D printers

Growing up as a kid in the 90's was great. My favourite things from those times would have to be: Aladdin, Are you afraid of the dark?, Goosebumps, Pokemon, and Star Fox 64. The only 90's music I listened to during the 90's was anything on Big Shiny Tunes.

I miss my family members paying me to set the VCR to record because I was the only one who mastered it. I could set it up to record an entire weeks worth of Toonami, as well as, Saturday morning favorites. I might have even dabbled in using two VCRs for... obtaining anime from blockbuster

Tell studios to stop making Universes, and hire actual screenwriters again--
THEN you'll have glorious 80's and 90's movies back in theaters!

Who's in for the big mass rally burning of Tom Cruise "The Mummy" disks?

Sci-Fi channel anyone? Back when they aired it on Saturday afternoon. it blew my mind that something like that would be animated and also no one really cared about the content. "If its animated, it must be for kids, right?" sometimes I wonder what they were thinking when they aired some of thos movies.

Hah. The first anime I ever saw was Venus Wars on the Sci-Fi channel as a kid. I used to really like that channel, what with anime, MST3k and FarScape all being on it, but it isn't even recognizable to me anymore. Not even the name. I stopped watching it when the channel seemingly got taken over by endless fake psychic garbage sometime in the 2000s.


As for the '80s... Some of the movies and music were great, but the fashion.. Ugh.

I think the thing I appreciate most about growing up when I did is actually that it was still socially acceptable for kids to spend the entire day playing outdoors unsupervised (at least where we lived). If parents tried that today they'd get Child Protective Services called on them so fast your head would spin. So my niece and nephew will never get to have the sort of Huck Finn-esque adventures I did as a child.


My first anime was Project A-ko. I loved that one and Rojin Z (That one was a little weird but I still got the premise at age 10) Other ones I just watched because they were on. And then there were some that to me were "WTF am I watching!? Why would they animate that? Let alone show it?" Demon City Shinjuku was one with the cat and some dogs getting dismembered, the camera pans away but you can see the shadow. And them my personal NOPE! anime, especially as a child and an animal lover was "Operation LILY CAT". That freaked the hell out of me. The spaceship's AI flips out and kills the cat on board, then it turns the decomposing corpse into its own little evil droid that kills everyone on board (Violently, I might add) except for its owner and the boyfriend.

I also got away from the Sci-Fi channel when they stopped airing MST3K. That was the last straw for me and haven't watched it since.

I too was a fashion victim of the 80's, especially the hair. (My long hair was always getting curled and permed as a result). That's why I love the 90's all the more because they toned that shit down!

The grass is always greener on the other side. No, I don't want to back. For starters, anime and manga are a hell of a lot easier to acquire these days.
