DVDs – like records, tapes and VHS are very dated now, a DVD will be a sign of the 2000’s and be completely wiped out by streaming in the next 5-10 years. Its a happening very quickly already.
“Keep Calm and X”
We’ll probably look back to dubstep as being so 2010’s, a little like grunge was for the 90’s.
Pumping your fist in the air screaming, “YOLO!”
I think the fact that we have television channels for shows will become outdated in the next few years or decades. Netflix and similar services getting more popular, spoiled teenagers in 30 years will be all “Oh my god, you guys had to actually wait for a single episode for a week at a time? That’s as crazy as people having to actually get up to use the TV.”
The new fad of shaving the only one side of the head while keeping the rest long. These pics will come back to haunt many.
Guys who have real short cropped beards. I am guilty of having one too, but all those pictures of us are going to look so 2000’s.
Bragging about being from the 90’s, dressing like you’re from the 80’s and listening to music from the 70’s.
Shirts with internet buzz-phrases on it like “Swag” or “Trill.”
“Oh, you and your electricity and running water…”
Using cell phones will probably be something that looks really hilarious to people in 15 years. We’ll just have chips in our head or something.
The long black socks that teenage boys wear. (You know, the Nike ones.) When I grew up, long black socks with tennis shoes was a look that only old people rocked.
Twitter and Facebook.
My girlfriend and I have talked about this before. We think it will be the massive flood of digital “folk art” that has arisen from a severely underemployed internet generation coming out of colleges with nothing but broken promises, a shitload of debt and all the time in the world.
Ear gauges and bro tanks.
Photo filters, anything like Instagram. Every single picture from this era is going to look extreeeeeeemely dated in a very short period of time.
Fixed gear bikes.
Fake black horn rimmed glasses. Putting birds on things. Anything mentioned in Portlandia.
North West’s Fall 2036 kollection will feature “vintage throwbacks” like leather harem pants, chambray, and ombre.
Shutter shades like Kanye West. Absolute Nightmare.
Our obsession with Reality TV.
Putting autotune in every fucking song on the radio. It sounded dated to me 5 years ago, and it’s just getting more and more popular.
Beats by Dre.
The mustache craze. We’re all going to look back at pictures of parties and such and think; why is everyone wearing/holding/decorating their drink with fake mustaches?
I swear it’s going to be something terrible. Imagine a teenage girl crying on the edge of her bed as One Direction blasts, hugging her vintage Ugg boots to her chest. “Living in the 30s is so not swag,” she moans. “I was born in the wrong generation.”
