There are times I miss the mid-2000's. I don't know if it was the fact that I still had dial-up internet, or that the internet wasn't QUITE the cesspool it is today... It could have been how cute we thought we were using KaZaa to... well, never mind about KaZaa.
But I think what I really miss is two-fold.
1) The hair. I sported 6 inches of thick, coarse hair. It was a giant frizzy mess, and I loved it. If you don't think the hair was awesome, just check the above picture and the below video.
3) The music. Music was so much better back then than it is now. With that, enjoy one of the "greatest hits" from my high school career, and let's get to the Walk.
