I'm not 30+ I'm just here to post MCR's first album and probably lots of other music:




also the answer is no though even though vampires were cool back then.

not really. and I don't really understand how the time travel thing would work. unless whoever has the authority just renamed 2020 as 2002, that sounds feasible. and 2020 is a better number anyway, I like it.

im pretty sure 2002 was the worst year of my life.

It seems like a lot of music I would link came out in other years, especially 2003-2004, some from the year 2000 and some late 90s.

2003 probably the most common year especially for pop punk albums I can think of (The Offspring, Billy Talent, AFI, Alkaline Trio, Blink 182 all released stuff that year and not in 2002.) Also Evanescence's first album, and Linkin Park released Meteora and The Rasmus Dead Letters came out in 2003 which I listened to a lot. The Dresden Dolls first album was also released in 2003, though I didn't listen to it then.. Deftones Deftones album came out in 2003.

System of a Down released an album I didn't listen to in 2002 lol, I like a bunch of stuff from Toxicity, Mezemerise and Hypnotise.

Red Hot Chili Peppers released an album that year, it's got some fairly good tracks on, but I don't like them as much as some of their others.

So musically it seems 2002 was kind of lacking. I was listening to Good Charlotte The Young and the Hopeless a lot which came out that year, probably in 2003 a bit too, but that was kind of **** in hindsight. Avril Lavigne is probably worth a mention:



Oh and this:



Tenacious D's album came out in 2001, but this was released in 2002 apparently as a single, and I did watch the music video a lot at one point (dunno how because this was before YouTube...)


Actually that song alone does make up for the lack of other stuff.

Oh right and this I used to like that song a lot:


Also a Korn album came out but most of the songs I like are on other albums this one's decent though:

Ha Tenacious-D, I remember that, I wasn't that big into music then, mostly just listened to the radio in the GTA games.

For me those were the days of rnb and rap. 112, Destiny's Child, Eminem, 50 Cent and their crews and all the other **** that was playing on the radio.

Nope, I would rather go forward in time. In the US, 2002 was filled with ultra patriotic nonsense, because of 911. I loved the 90s, the early 2000s so-so, it was more so a period of time where we regressed as a society.. If I could pick a period of time to go to, it would be the time when we all can plug into our computers, have sophisticated AI to help us build our own worlds as well as populate them. I'm talking about the future, I'm all about the future. The sooner I can vacate this world, and put my imagination to use in a tangible virtual universe, the better.

Of course, if I were there, I would probably create a virtual world based off the 90s ;p I would never want to touch the 2000s again. Of course, I wouldn't want to be limited to just the 90s, I would probably do some fantasy/medieval stuff, futuristic stuff.. and so on. I don't really think there is a point in time, I really want to be in, I want to be away from it all and in my own happy place The future is the only place where that is possible though.

For now, video games and VR will have to do.

Live and let live

Sometimes I wonder what it would be like to go back to a year we’ve already had. It could be fun if it was only for about a week. If everyone had to go back to the same year, everything new we have now wouldn’t be there. People would miss their technology, new shows, music and anything else they’ve had since after the year they’re going back to ended.

1. I was 28.

2. I worked at McDonald's.

3. Even so, that was better than now.

4. That should tell you everything you need to know about me and how I'm doing.

What's so great about 2002?


Enjoy any good things, even the little and menial ones, as you will never know what impending distresses could descend upon you in a moment.

It's nostalgic for us. The friends, the music, everything.

For me it was just that it was 17 years ago. I'll take whatever I can get.

**** ive been on SAS since then almost.

Nothing was that great in 2002 other than some pretty damn awesome PC game releases(Morrowind, Jedi Knight 2).

Id go back in the 80s though since that's where most of the fun was for me, discovering videogames, 80s action movies, I had hair, my first girlfriend etc.

Gather your party before venturing forth. And if you don't have a party, at least you don't have to wait on anyone.

i'm surprised no one said they wish it was 2002, so they could undo certain decisions, do things they regret they didn't, etc..

UGH, no. I graduated from high school in 2003, and university the first time around was way worse than high school for me; no way I'd want to live through those years again. Plus I was a real idiot back then; I may feel old now but at least I have more wisdom.
