      If you check the description you can see the whole team of people that worked on this video and it doesn’t really say his name on any of the credits. I think at this point he might just be doing the voiceover and directing. JaidenAnimations is about the same way I think.

      @@ircusing9875 I mean, dudes already made it big. It’s not practical to devote that much time and effort into animating a full video by yourself or even with a small team, when you make so much money to just relax and hire people to help. It’s hard to argue that the quality of his older videos would compare with this one. And even if he’s not directly involved in animating, just putting out the content to share with us is probably enough fulfillment for James and Jaiden. I know what you’re saying but I feel like if I were in their shoes I’d probably do the same thing.

      You can remember it because those things were still around, but the world around you wasn’t the same. Like you could’ve had a myspace, but all your friends from school weren’t on there using it with you or borrowing someone’s digital camera to take pictures because the pictures you took on flip phones (if you had a nice one) weren’t pictures you could use on MySpace. Maybe you used our things, but you didn’t live it. We’re only 5 years apart so there’s still a lot similarities between our childhoods.

The internet was new, lot simpler, and definitely hadnt taken over society with such prominence as it has today. It seems to me like the 90s were better times for growing up..But what do I know:)
    Oh and I love using the wayback machine to visit old websites and see how they looked, so I got a laugh out of the reference to backgrounds being a jpeg used multiple times!! Lol people in the early ages of the internet apparently couldn't style websites very well....But I have the same fond/nostalgia feelings for the early websites with the bright yellow text you couldn't even read against the background...which was just, like, the same picture of Hanson ten thousand times
    I'm kinda happy to understand the references in this video even though I didn't even live thru the 90s.

Hell I grew up with AoL being the only way on the internet, and it was It's own entire thing. Not even a brower, but another OS it felt.
      The pinball sound definitely hit me with the nostalgia, too.

  • @theclasscalico
    @theclasscalico Před 8 měsíci +6

    I am Gen Z, but more specifically earlier gen Z (I was born at the end of the 90s) and I can relate to quite a bit of it. I do agree with the sentiment that the internet is a good thing, but it's not without its downsides. We'd perhaps benefit from disconnecting a little more often if possible, though I acknowledge that for some, it's their only venue for socialising/doing much at all (not everybody can get out so easily to socialise or do any other, miscellaneous activities). It would sure be wonderful if we could rid of certain unhealthy cultures that have arisen on the internet over the years, but I do not believe that that is feasible.
    Anyway. I do not recall MySpace being very prevalent, but I was on the internet between the late 2000s and early 2010s. I recall Facebook being the dominant social media when I was younger, including with younger people. However, as I did not have social media back then, excluding CHclip, my understanding of that side of the internet may have been limited.

    There's a reason why Space Cadet pinball was only in Windows XP and ME. There was a bug in the game that Microsoft wanted to patch for Windows 7, but they lost the license to the game. So they had to scrap the program to be bundled with the OS and just use a different game in its place. Fortunately, it has been fixed and you can download the game for Windows 10.
