Y2K/Neo-Y2k aesthetics thread!
Post your aesthetics here!
"The Y2K aesthetic, also known in some circles as Kaybug, is an aesthetic that was prevalent from roughly 1995 to 2003, although the aesthetic didn't really begin to become well-defined until about 1997. Named after the Y2K Bug, it is characterized by a distinct aesthetic period, encapsulating fashion, hardware design, music, and furnishings shining with tech optimism — sometimes literally. According to the Y2K Aesthetic Institute, some of its aspects include tight leather pants, silver eyeshadow, shiny clothing, Oakleys, gradients, and Blobitecture. Most Y2K aesthetics rely on the use of technology and slick futuristic looks, signaling the optimism of a new era as the 20th century/2nd millennium progressed into the 21st century/3rd millennium. One of the earliest definers of the Y2K aesthetic is the Designers' Republic, a Sheffield-based graphic design studio best known for their work on the Wipeout video game franchise and various album artwork."

The Power Macs got in on the fun too! Imagine Apple releasing anything that looked like this now...I like the attempt to infuse tech with humanity, those swerving, swooping handles and panels :) the ghost "G3" is a nice touch too

The convenience of Wikipedia is great, but man, the interactivity of a program like Encarta combined with the fact that you didn't even need an internet connection to use it makes it a completely different experience.

God, D3 games are such garbage. I get irrationally happy whenever Vinny from Vinesauce has to slog through them during his PS2 budget titles streams because his reactions are always fantastic.

この美学は非常に素晴らしく、明確に定義されていました。私のクラスの何人かの生徒は、当時洗練されていたハイテク機器を持ち歩いていました。彼らはたくさんの青を着ていて、マトリックスからまっすぐに出ているように見えました。当時は誰もが自分のグループの一員になりたいと思っていましたが、今日では誰もなりたくありませんでした。彼らは今私の年齢だと思います、そして彼らは行き止まりの仕事と結婚生活のために彼らの急進的なスタイルを落としました

うわー、私は彼らがまだ千年紀までにそれについて話しているとは知りませんでした。一部の人々がどのような予測を作成するかはクレイジーです
