YouTube in 2006-2007
Remember Lisa Nova, Stevie Ryan, Tay Zonday of CHOCOLATE RAIN, Chris Crocker, Venetian Princess, or the Chapstick girl? YouTube was SO cool in 2006. It was more user friendly and felt like a community of great, talented and interesting people around the world. You could post any type of video, and people would find it interesting. YouTube is now more corporate with ads everywhere and doesn’t quite have the same feel as it did back in 2006.
Before iPods, there were HITCLIPS!
Before iPods, iPads, and uploading music to your phone, there were HITCLIPS, you could listen to a minute of all your favorite songs from all your favorite singers and bands in the day. You were cool if you had them. They came in all different designs too.

Who Remembers MySpace?!
If you were a 2000’s kid like me, and a cool kid at that, then you had a MySpace page! In this episode, I started my first MySpace page when I was 15 years old. I talk about how creepy adult men would send me creepy messages knowing damn well I was underage, how parents hated MySpace, how important it was to be on someone’s top 8 and have the perfect layout and how your MySpace was an expression of your personality. Oh, and you actually had to GO ON AN ACTUAL COMPUTER TO USE MYSPACE! You could not use the Internet on your cell phone at the time! MySpace was the first real social media, and it took over the world for a few years...until Facebook came along and took over. Now MySpace is dead. Long live MySpace. We hardly knew ye.
