アットマークが大流行したときのことを覚えています。誰もがそれについて話していて、それが何であるか疑問に思っていました、それはハッシュタグの前に長い時間でした。ある意味で、ハッシュタグが現在のインターネットのシンボルであるのと同じように、それは古いインターネットのサインでした。

It's really interesting to see a video from the 90s of people who weren't very online being confused about the at sign. I see the at sign a lot in 90s/2000s media or magazine scans, on things like buildings, graphics, or clothes, but I didn't contextualize it like this. I never really considered how strange it must've been for people to see a whole new sign that existed only because of the internet. Thanks for sharing!

I remember how 2 years ago I was talking about Y2k being the future of Vaporwave and that it should be it's own separate sub-genre and everyone in >redditcostanzayeahrightsmirk that was part of the convo kept missing the point of it. Sure, there are many artists out there that have sampled music from the 21st century, but I can assure you none of them were about the broken promises and the aesthetic of Y2k.
For me, this was a period of time I was forbidden to enjoy. I was surrounded by 80s media because it was what my mother grew up with, but in the background I was just wishing to be there with everyone enjoying the present. This is why I am extremely sentimental about this specific time period and I will stop at nothing to get others to see how beautiful it was while it lasted.
Anywho, as for the aesthetic I am all over the place with what I like... But my shit is racing and rhythm games so here's a little something.

I know it started in the 90s but man I feel like this look's never ended, saw it through the 2010s, then it dipped and now I think it's back again. feels kinda like how Tripp pants lasted from the 90s into the 2010s, think those are having another resurgence too.

ローハンギングパンツもここ日本では大きなトレンドでした。よく覚えていますが、後から考えると、時代遅れになったときは嬉しかったです
