I Love the ’00s

It’s inevitable that VH1 will be debuting their new series, I Love the ’00s, in a little over four-and-a-half years. After all, I Love the ’90s was brought forth just a year or so ago. So what do you think’s going to be included in the series?

We’ll naturally have retrospectives on the US elections and the controversies surrounding them, September 11, and Michael Jackson. I expect a bit on Charlie Kaufman’s movies (Being John Malkovich, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind), blogging, and a showcase of how the letter “Z” became the new letter “S”.

definitely iPods, Myspace, Facebook, Youtube…maybe Kelly, like from the Shoes video. Movies like Shrek, Mean Girls, Napoleon Dynamite, Chicago. razor scooters, Razr phones, stem-cells, 2000 election, 2004 election, 2008 election? 9-11-01, Iraq invasion, Madrid & london bombings, 2005 hurricane season. Amy Winehouse, the Fray, Hips Don’t Lie (Shakira), Bratz dolls, the Fairly Oddparents.

I didn’t watch it, but last night VH1 had “I Love the New Millennium” on their schedule. Guess they couldn’t wait another year and a half.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
