The new decade is right around the corner. Let's reminiscence about that which was and speculate about that which will be.

The 2010s were reminiscing about the 90s, soundcloud rappers becoming mainstream pop singers, smartphone/smart television technology, youtube becoming larger than television and the internet overall becoming a lot less fun. As far as those things go, I think mainstream music will become a mix of rock/metal and nu-rap, and one of the big trends on the internet will be creating your own lightweight web pages, since everyday more and more teens become fascinated with late 90s-early 2000s internet (and yes they are competent enough to make their own pag)es). More and more kids will be exposed to y2k aesthetics through video games (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jQnf8J-AFek) and possibly television if cartoons start using those aesthetics like how Steven Universe references 90s anime and video games

Nostalgia, revivals and remakes have been the dominant force this decade as far as culture and media are concerned. It seems like part militant effort to keep things safe and part creative folk feeling desperate. Mockery, subversion and irony have become bigger than ever as a result of such a landscape.
As far as for the future, I don't know what the future holds. I really wish people would stop with the nostalgia and callbacks to the past in the upcoming decade, but I guess that's not happening. The consolidation of the internet for sure will keep growing. Having social media presence might become mandatory. VR getting even bigger is highly likely. Things might finally burn to the ground at long last. I don't know.

>Having social media presence might become mandatory

God, I hope not. I still don't have any social media and I refuse to get any.

I also have no social media but I don't think someone in a western country can stay that way especially when old people who are tech illiterate are going away
Do you think you can keep that up for another decade?

Nostalgic revivals have been the dominant force every decade.
You just don't see it in the earlier ones as readily because you don't know the things that were being revived as well.

The 90s in particular were VERY heavily influenced by nostalgia for media made in mid-century America. You can see this a lot in 90s cartoons, which were absolutely packed with Jay Ward, Chuck Jones, Osamu Tezuka and Hanna-Barbara influence.

There's no escape from this cycle, is there?

The synth jazz flavored infomercial 90s, not the big beat flavored radicool 90s.

Most people on social media are already pretty aware how dogshit it is (for example, big artists that call out "cancel culture" and other gay trends). All it really takes is a few big people to sway everyone away from social media and trying something different. A lot of people that still update their tumblr blogs are part of the core cliques (webcore, kidcore, etc) and already have their own neocities pages.

Stop whining.

I wish more "radicool" style stuff was made since that was my favorite thing about 90s culture. The only mainstream thing that comes to mind that tried to emulate it on a large scale was OK KO and it did pretty lousy in ratings, ending after only two years.

whats a `radicool'?
14 Nameless 2019-12-20T04:49:51
It's the aesthetic found in 90s Nicktoons, 16-bit mascot platformers, and hip-hop music. It was a deliberately over-the-top and goofy style that was in part a rebellion against the straight-laced conservative attitudes of the 80s.

Ah yeah, like in street sharks and teenage mutant turtles. Late 80es / early 90es. I didn't know there was a name for this.

I will never understand people who like to base their fashion/identity around certain "aesthetics", but I digress.

The 2010s were a strange time for me, I enjoyed the trends of 2D. I think the 2010s have the best looking anime by far, especially as far as character design goes. I understand that some people find this sterile. I don't really know much else about the 2010s other than large movements for social change that ultimately didn't affect much. Everything feels a lot more generic and less "wholesome" (?) is how I tend to view it. But that's just my opinion. I'm sure people will look back fondly on the 2010s one day.

What I think must be noted however is that decades don't end culturally as soon as the calendar decade does, nor does it start. For example, a lot of people feel that the 2010s didn't really start until like 2013 or 2012 and the 90s didn't end until 2004.

I have no idea of the trends that will crop up during the 2020s, other than everyone who's on websites other than big social media seems to have this wistful longing for the 2000s so maybe there will be a large scale revival for that kind of internet climate, but considering how jaded everyone is, I sincerely doubt it will happen.

Something tells me that the 20s will be the decade Big Beat, light blue filters, and 2000s early 3d futurism will take a revival.
I honestly can't wait, I love The Prodigy.

I remember when youtube still had the original videoclip of "One love" by The Prodigy.
They fucking deleted it.

Sounds similar to what happened to the "codename dancer" videoclip of a member of Death Grips. Nobody ended up saving it so after being set to private it can be no longer seen.
Also a lot of content that I liked on youtube no longer exists, it's insane, things that used to exists no longer do and it's impossible to ever witness them again.
