The decade following the 1990s, currently in progress, and on course to becoming one of the worst, most meaningless and culturally empty decades in American history.
I'm so glad I graduated from high school in the 1990s and not the 00s.
A British band that captured the hearts and mind of a whole NME reading generation during the 00s.
Led by two men so close they were possibly bottom sexual, Peter Doherty and Carlos Barrat,The Libs recorded two albums before sailing off down Ol Albion but leave a rich legend which will grow when Pete Doherty dies of smack overdose,which seems to be inevatble.
Libertines fans are notoriously obbsesive and will punch you if you so much sneer at their beloved band.
Pete went onto front the pathetic Babyshambles,Carl and ex-Libs drummer Gary formed the sexy Dirty Preety Things and John (ex-guitarist) with Yeti.
Unsurprsingly,none of them are as good as The Libertines.
Some people are still hoping for a reunion. :)
The Libertines were awesome. As was watching Pete And Carl make out,as they sometimes did during shows.Mmmmm...
The common pronouncement and name for the current decade, the '00s. The 'Oughties' was created out of the word "ought" which is an old-fashioned or British way of saying "zero".
"Forget the '80s and '90s, this is the decade and time for everything that Ought to be..these are the naughty OUGHTIES!"
The years in which we're now (00-10) or the 00s.
A lot of neo-words were suggested to describe the decade we live in right now, but many of these weren't as good as the zips.
Here's a list:
-the tookies (from 2Ks: Years 2000).
-the ohs/ oh-ohs.
-the aughts/ aughties.
-the naughts/ the naughties.
-the the 00psies/ 2000-psies (resounding the dot-bomb effect!). Also: the dooming 2000s.
Basically the 1990s, but more commercialized, with much better technology and more conflict.
The decade of the hipster, indie rock, veganism, gay acceptance, and going "green".
The decade of the reality show, crappy television, the death of MTV, and the rise of emo.
The decade of constant crisis, which led to the crappiness that defines the 24-hour news network.
The decade when we all realized that our entire lives depended on the internet.

2000s- Let's take all that's great from the 90s, commercialize it, and market it to everyone!

The numerals spell it all. Zero economic opportunity after college, zero sence in the general public, cultural zeroes, zero understanding and tolerance, near zero entertainment, politicians with zero intelligence and zero scruples, hysteria, panic, hatred and witch hunt frenzy stirred up by political cretins and a sensationalistic zero IQ media (esp. TV news). It's the Decade of Duh.
1. 1999 turns into 1984 (the novel). Fanatics attack on 9/11 and a great panic ensues. Armchair warriors see war on TV 24/7. Fundie fanaticism (Christian and Muslim) flowers. Meanwhile the economy tanks and the U.S. Constitution is used as toilet paper. Talking heads on TV toss in trashy celebrity stories to distract viewers. This turns America into a Masturbation Nation.more...
2. Reality TV becomes the opiate of the masses.
3. Anybody who stands near a flag, pretends to pray in public, holds up a cross, talks of "family values" or boasts of kickin' ass is venerated by the masses.
NBC reporter: Mr. Bush, who is your favorite philosopher?
W: Uhhhh - Jesus Christ!
The first half of this decade was great, and the other half sucked.
Hey man, do you remember the 00's? No, I mean the early 00's.
