I'm not too oldfag, since I didn't find Upyachka, but I consider the era of "azaz, lalka, bivalent" in 2012 to be golden. Gorgeous, postironically, our time has overtaken our time, because now, in fact, these are the same memes, they just are reborn into a "potironically farted pussy".
If we are talking about the most massive manifestation of suitability - this is when FACH was still FFFFUUU and FUCK YEAH comics. The year is about 2010. Of course, all this was not limited only to such comics, everyone had the opportunity to upload their content to albums, and the Updates view function made it possible to conveniently view everything new. The most suitable authors were noticed and allocated separate albums for them, or they created their own groups. Of these, I can remember Alexei Konev with absolutely insane comics of the "Cucumber is not good" series And Sky is Over, which became famous thanks to the comic book series about a stoned monk - "Ivaaaan". The current era is also not lagging behind, memes with sunshine cats very much even nothing. This is a new round of feline classics.
The flourishing of publics in VK: 2010-2012. A bunch of everything typical, Omsk bird, Man Bleat, Yao Ming, Not bad, well, one cannot fail to mention the election memes with Zhirinovsky
Does the name Ibrahim mean anything to you? Beautiful name, Allah Akbar! And if I wear a Candybober on my head, this does not mean that I am a woman or a ballerina
For me personally, this is 2008-2011.
I discovered memes during the time of upheaval, leprosy, activity on lurka, and when imageboards had not yet been advertised on VKontakte. For me, the golden era of memes ended in 2012, when they started posting an advertisement for Dvach on VK, at this stage the boards finally died, and after them the old memes. Although, even over FU-faces, schoolchildren lost their lives, but then memes were not yet fashionable. For many, they were an opportunity to relax their brains on the Internet after a hard day, to laugh. There was no "hype", in a word.
The first meme that I remember when I started surfing the Internet was the "magic rabbit". There were also the Black Lord, Onotole, Chuck Norris, from the same era. But in general, there were memes at the beginning of the 2000s, just then there weren't any contacts in contacts, so they were quite local.
I cannot call myself a veteran, but I remember UPCh, witness, 2ch with a sparing tear. Lurochka also delivered. The memes on the 12th were monotonous. But there were shots too. Comics about Ivan, for example.
Everything described is subjective, of course. Now after Pepe, companions also have nice memes. The publics of AMDEWS v-shny and kaiserundallah force the pleasant. IMHO.
Regarding the "Golden Epoch" ™: it has not come yet.
Do you have the feeling that you are pushing something important away from yourself? The birth of a true universal language, there? Throw it up.
Personally, I am looking forward to when all this shit will sink into oblivion - after emo and everything, everything, everything. Memes have an overly negative and rapid impact on the minds of the younger generation: people learn to think in bits like comics, pictures, gifs. What kind of humor is this? I never understood it. I miss the days when all this simply did not exist.
The era of the revival of memes, the years 2010s approximately. Viral videos like: "dude, this is a repchik", "the chef asks the chef" can go on indefinitely. It is the Internet because almost every region used these memes with roflansky inscriptions in their own language and they were almost everywhere. For me personally, and as I see, for many this time was golden.
I don’t know how others are doing, but my very first memories of Internet memes run into a dullness! UPYACHKA, SHYASHSLO POPYACHSO1 !! ABYR ABYR !!
2009-2011 - demotivators, memes like TROLOLO, PokerFace, LOL, etc.
2012-2013 (touched a little more 2014) - gone mum, spudiks, azazazists, staples, " sasai lalka "and" stole the grandmother's pension and the font yashkt) 00 ". Representatives of this force went to 4ch.
2014-2015 - memes about Ukrainians, 4ch just started to gain popularity. Classics about disabled people, about grandmother's pension.
2016 - stupid "hype" kids, fashionistas who covered 4ch, and generally slipped. Some unfunny "I really don't give a fuck" or "Mister Dudets" ..
In general, oldfags won't remember, they won't understand new.
But what about the prosperity, Robbery of the Caravans, and when every self-respecting advanced hung out on the hub and the leper colony? and Bring the bear? and an avatar with chuck noris? guys where is olda?
When you think about the "golden era", he immediately comes to mind. A stern and athletic comrade, Witness from Fryazino, originally from 2006. If anyone remembers this.
There were a lot of memes on the Internet, I think they were very popular about father and son, FUUUUU like these. Personally, I will miss the Oscar jokes for one guy (
When the kote on the upchk was no more than a tweet, the guys trifored in each thread and cp threw the first request to HP, when they called only the chosen chan and asked the yellow-tails to explain for the oldfags. This is the time that prevailed even before borschiks, ides and other trendy things. Remember, all this was long before the appearance in the masses, because it was customary not to burn the suitability. Ontl
2009-2012 - This is really a golden era. One has only to mention the cook, the grandfather with the guitar, who plays Bill Haley, Ivan Gamaz, Buyny, Dangerous Potsyk, Nikita Litvinkov, YAAZ, (Airship, yeah), Valera is your time and much more .. They were popular on VKontakte " Fuuuu "comics / memes with characters drawn in Paint 's crookedly. It's a pity, of course, that this era has passed and in its place came near-moral memes for degenerates.
Grandfathers gathered)) Earlier, the grass was greener. And now there are good memes, the problem (or not a problem at all) is that the number of online people has increased significantly, there are more interest groups. And memes have become something more local than before. Therefore, it seems that now is completely different. Yes, and we have grown, and the sense of humor with us. So, it is quite possible that this is just our vision of the meme situation, but in fact we simply cannot appreciate the memes that are popular now.
Around 2011 and earlier, it all ended on about "fffuuu" memes, many disliked them, but judge for yourself, these were just templates for comics, and there were endless options for humor. I am already silent about onotole and about what was above.
And now what? They find a funny cartoon and spend months on it: with
2010-12 year. A group of Counselor Dog and her friends, which was sold and converted into a Fashion Store. Carters with closed fucks. And doggy week.
In short, I think the advisories were in good order.
2005-2011 This is the heyday of memes in Russia, here we have a "Chef" and "Borshchik, but not red", there and then potsyk with hemp, and of course my beloved Vital, who is a real cupcake, and he will breed any chick for sex. So in 2011, the decline of similar memes began and memes in the style of 4chan began. Well, then it started ... Jokes about moms, death, bestiality and sadism in all its manifestations.
By the way, if you want to immerse yourself in the atmosphere of classic memes, then you should definitely visit Lurk. I have everything.
