I miss 90's EXTREME culture and 00's bro culture. They were exuding masculinity and women were sexy and naked.
>>1897 It's sad how neutered popular culture has become, and ironically the same people responsible for it today were the ones who would complain about censorship from Moral Majority types back then. One of the images in my head of the 2000s in particular is the beachy imagery you used to see in ads, with handsome and muscular men with tan skin and shaggy hair and fit and attractive women who weren't afraid to show off their bodies. Nowadays men are neutered, and the closest thing to women of that type would be Instagram addicts with Cluster B personality disorders. I'm not a comic book enthusiast, but I miss the art style in the left image. Back in the '90s the superhero stuff was fun even for kids like me who enjoyed the cartoons and read the occasional comic but weren't actual fans.
>>1901 culture back then was made by men for men once you start introducing foreign elements into this mix it's all over
EXTREME

/Y2KFG/ - Y2K Furry General Fellow Time Traveler 04/21/2021 (Wed) 23:31:56 No.1088 [Reply] [Last]
A thread for artwork and content of anthropomorphic animals characters (or "furries") from the late 1990s and early 2000s. Sources are encouraged. Resources: https://yerf.metafur.org/ http://us.vclart.net/vcl/ https://confurence.com/

>>1207 >>>/kemono/ is treated more as a bunker, the thread on prolikewoah is far more active (even smug to a lesser extent) https://prolikewoah.com/animu/res/31473.html https://smuglo.li/a/res/815382.html I'm not familiar with the older kemono artists, but older uploads on boorus (gelbooru, e621, etc) often have art from earlier periods. gelbooru deprecated its anthro tags, but I found a couple 90s artists on e621 I've never seen before. Uploaded in order: karabiner https://e621.net/artists/239 macop https://e621.net/artists/1354 m.wolverine I also found this last image during my search. I guess some things never change.

Probably not specific to furries, but I think what I miss the most about older art was artists actually improving their style over time. Now many of them just stagnate and collect Patreon bux. >>1244 >>1246 >>1249 >Cracked Don't remind me.
>>1492 I honestly don't mind it when artists stagnate, considering how many of them actively seek to make their art worse. Begging for money on Patreon and other paywall sites is shameful, but at least sites like Kemono.party help me to get past paywalls (and most people who do beg like that usually produce nothing but garbage).

This is a bit old and it's not what we'd really call furry, but I thought it would be of interest to anyone reading this thread. These are some paintings by the artist Joanna Karpowicz: https://joannakarpowicz.pl/. The guy who posted them in the kemono thread on /animu/ claimed they were from 1976, but according to the artist's website they're from 2012-2020. I tried to dig a bit deeper and found that the Polish publisher who's producing an art book with the full collection of the paintings actually has a website that would quality for /retro/ status. Just look at it: https://sklep.timof.pl/preorder/main.php?page=basket The paintings are a bit simple (Anubis's head is literally just a flat silhouette in many of them) but I find that they have a certain je-ne-sais-quois. There's something appealing about them that I just can't describe, and it might be that the simple style really contributes to that. Anubis has such a distinctly human figure, but the obvious canine head atop it is a really sharp contrast.

1980's Nostalgia General CaesarDude 01/05/2020 (Sun) 21:20:39 No.274 [Reply] [Last]
Alright, I decided to expand the scope of this board a little more and include a containment thread for 80's nostalgia. I mainly created this board to serve as both a successor to the old /y2k/ board, which was my favorite board on 8chan, and also expand the scope to include 90's nostalgia too, but after checking on this board, I noticed someone mentioning 80's nostalgia and I decided I would do something about it. I personally don't care that much for 80's pop culture aside from the music and some of the old edgy anime, but 80's nostalgia did become a thing in the 2000's and I can see why others like the whole 80's style, so I'll allow it as long as it's mainly kept to this thread.

Might as well post some more music.
I like the Parade Ground sound in spite of the goofy vocals holding them back. I don't like them as much as Asylum Party, who I discovered at the same time, but I still don't think they get as much attention as they deserve considering they don't even have a Wikipedia page.

Web 1.0 and Web 1.5 Nostalgia General Fellow Time Traveler 09/09/2019 (Mon) 01:52:13 No.24 [Reply] [Last]
So, what are some of your favorite memories of the old internet? Can be websites, memes, events or any other aspect of the days of Web 1.0 and 1.5 For a quick reference, here's what I would define as Web 1.0 and Web 1.5 >Web 1.0: Usenet, Geocities and Angelfire, AOL (1991-2001) >Web 1.5: Early YouTube, ED, 4chan in its "wild west" days, MySpace, YTMND, Newgrounds and the peak years of dA and Fanfiction.net (2001-2008) You also had cross-generation stuff like GameFAQs and IMDB which are still around today, although sadly IMDB's infamous message boards are gone

>>1642 I really like the background you used. It's funny that you mention Soulseek, since I recently started using that now that public torrents seem to be drying up for a lot of things. I've come to prefer it to torrents for music, since downloading directly from one person seems to be more reliable than trying to download a torrent and hoping there are enough seeders for it to actually download. I was in the habit of ripping playlists off YouTube, and this works so much better. I'm currently looking for something similar for movies and TV shows. Supposedly Kodi can be used that way, but I don't know much of anything about it yet. >Bliss also has a greater saturation because it was taken on Fuji Velvia slide film. (In medium format as well). I experimented with slide film once, but it didn't turn out. I guess that's the chance you take buying expired film.
>>1678 >I really like the background you used. Tiled water background I found somewhere, I forget exactly where, but searching for tiled backgrounds on duckduckgo is how I found the site. I did edit it because it was more of a teal color before and I wanted it to be more blue. I've been using Soulseek for a while. It's great. I love it when someone downloads from me as well. >I'm currently looking for something similar for movies and TV shows Check Soulseek anyway. I've gotten shows from there. I once got a movie I could not find anywhere else, and I also got a book I couldn't find anywhere else online, too. I share music, music videos, TV shows, movies, and books. >I experimented with slide film once, but it didn't turn out. I guess that's the chance you take buying expired film. Slide film has a very narrow exposure latitude, whereas negative film has a relatively wide one. You can under or overexpose negative film a lot and it'll be fine. For expired negative film generally you might overexpose it one stop per decade it's been expired, but slide film with its narrow exposure window means you have to get the exposure pretty much dead on and if it's expired it's going to make that job a lot harder. And I would think that slide film degrades faster as well, but I'm not too sure.
>>1710 >Check Soulseek anyway. I've gotten shows from there. I once got a movie I could not find anywhere else, and I also got a book I couldn't find anywhere else online, too. I share music, music videos, TV shows, movies, and books. I read something about it being inefficient and taking up downloading slots from people downloading music. Maybe I should just try it anyway. I downloaded some fairly niche shows I could put up that seem like they'd be getting harder to find. I haven't even watched them yet, but maybe someone will appreciate them. >Slide film has a very narrow exposure latitude, whereas negative film has a relatively wide one.

And I would think that slide film degrades faster as well, but I'm not too sure. There was absolutely no image on the developed film itself. I'm out of the photography game, but if I ever get back into it I'd like to give slide film another try. I've always been a dilettante, so who knows how it would turn out.

Gonna post about a horror game ive been playing on and off for the last 15 years if that interests anybody http://www.hellrising.com/index.php Attached is a screenshot of the game. It's perfect for people with time on their hands at work or dont have a strong pc for gaming etc. You basically play as either a human, vampire or zombie in the quarantined city of serling and fight it out. It has both elements of PVP and npc enemies.  You can form up groups which sort of function like guilds, which allow  the use of group storage. they also recently (well sort of recently) added base buildings items and crafting (Example: you can fence off a building, any undead have to break the fencing in order to access the buildings. there are different types of fencing and walls you can make via crafting, along with other stuff) If you do decide to play, my advice for anyone is stop by a fire department and pick up a walkie talkie it allows you to talk to the rest of the game and your first skill I suggest buying is the hiding one so you don't get killed as often. Oh one last thing, here is a map of the game. its easy to get lost without it https://vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/hellrising/images/0/00/Serling.png

90's-2000's toys nostalgia thread Fellow Time Traveler 12/07/2019 (Sat) 16:50:57 No.223 [Reply] [Last]
The 2000's were arguably the last decade when children actually played with toys...

What toys did you have? What toys did you want? Share memories from visiting the big toy aisles, etc.

P.S. The size of the pictures does not indicate the importance/quality of the toys besides Action Man vs Max Steel..'cause Action man is better or you can argue otherwise.

Flash was pretty cool and it's gonna die this year so let's have a thread about flash games and just stuff that's made in flash in general.
