50 Obsolete Things To Prove How Much The World Has Moved On And Changed

Blank VHS Covers Had Some Wild Artwork

There are two things that keep my spirits up when everything seems to be going wrong—daydreaming and nostalgia. If you’ve got the blues, there’s nothing like cuddling under a warm blanket, grabbing a mug of hot tea and some childhood snacks, and thinking back to the good old days. (Preferably with an old movie, game, or soundtrack to help you get in the right mood.)

If you’re a nostalgiaholic who loves reminiscing about how things used to be and what we used to have, then the ‘Nostalgia’ subreddit will be right up your alley. A community of nearly 868k people, r/nostalgia is a place for everything—from things to commercials from our past, whether they’re happy, funny, or sad. Get ready to dive headfirst into your childhood. Just remember to upvote your fave pics while you’re swimming through long-forgotten memories.

Entertainment Cabinets, The Click Sound It Would Make After Closing

Therapist and British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) member Kemi Omijeh explained to Bored Panda that how we remember our childhood experiences directly correlates to the kind of childhood we’ve had. In other words (and to generalize a bit), we’re nostalgic about our childhood if our experiences are full of being loved and nurtured. Meanwhile, the opposite is also true.

“If we’ve had a difficult childhood, it can be hard to feel nostalgic, instead it will feel like something we need to get over in order to move on,” said Omijeh.

According to her, nostalgia, aka our brains reliving the fun and happy times we’ve had, is good and healthy. “Nostalgia can also be a good coping strategy for times of low mood and challenges,” she said. However, Omijeh points out that there’s a limit: nostalgia can become a hindrance to everyday life when it interferes with our everyday lives and our ability to be present.

“Many psychologists, myself included, believe our childhood is the foundation to who we are as adults. It explains why we frequently revisit our childhood as it influences our present,” she explained.

“If we end up comparing it to our experiences today and feeling like nothing is as good as it was, then this will inevitably affect our mood and our ability to do what we need to do,” therapist Omijeh said. “We can become stuck in our nostalgia; in which case it might be best to seek help from a counseling professional to help you process your past in order to enjoy your present. You can find a counseling professional through the BACP.”

Another nuance is that when we’re living our past memories, we’re seeing them through a filter. The details might not be accurate and we’re reliving what we want to remember.

Considering that some of us (ahem, yours truly) can get stuck on daydreaming quite a bit, we were curious to find out what can be done to control it and feel more ‘present,’ instead of always floating about in fairyland.

“Identify your patterns. Think about the times you usually daydream, is there something about that situation or those times that mean you’re daydreaming? Do something about it if that is the case. Set a time limit, use a timer if it ensures you stop,” BACP member Omijeh said. “Write down the biggest thought or feeling as a result of the daydream. That way you’re not just stopping daydreaming. You are doing something positive as a nice transition from stopping daydreaming to doing something.”

She also suggests interrupting daydreams by reminding ourselves of action points and to-do lists. Even something like singing or humming your favorite song can work wonders to distract you. Not a fan of music? Try reciting a poem or remembering your math skills by doing the times table. In other words, do something, anything to distract yourself from your daydreaming if you feel that it occupies too much of your time.

“Finally, turn your daydream into a visualization or goal exercise. Your daydreams could be a communication about your innermost desires. Could you begin to plan how to achieve those desires?” the therapist mused.

Seeing how the r/nostalgia subreddit was formed back in 2008, in a very meta way, it won’t be long before someone’s nostalgic for its founding days as well.

Whether or not nostalgia is good or bad for you is a complex question, as we’ve seen. But, in short, it’s all about balance. On the one hand, living just in your memories draws you away from the present, making you blind to your surroundings and the important events happening around you. We should be happy with where we are in the present, not just the past.

And, well, if we’re not too content with where we are in life, it’s best to make some honest changes so we have some great memories to look forward to in the future. But nostalgia has some great upsides, too, and plenty of researchers and therapists agree.

On the other hand, being nostalgic can have benefits as well. It’s no secret that the way we think and what we think about affects our daily lives. Similarly, Scientific American confirms that the bittersweet nostalgic feelings we get actually improve our mood, our vitality, and possibly even our mental health.

That’s because nostalgia boosts something known as ‘self-continuity’ which is how connected we feel to our past selves and the narrative we have about our lives. So it really does pay off to reminisce about the brightest parts of your life, full of loved ones, warmth, and wholesome activities. Just remember not to get stuck there for too long, Pandas—it’s time to make new heartwarming memories.

Completely Terrifying ‘The Last of Us’ Cosplay by Emma Franks

This horrendous creature is known as a ‘clicker’ in Naughty Dog‘s “The Last of Us.” In the game, you have to survive in a post-apocalyptic world when a fungus takes over and turns humans into these ugly zombie-like creatures.

Thanks to the combined efforts of photographer Adrian, make-up artist Jon Wilks and model Emma Franks, a clicker has never looked more dangerous. Snapping up pictures at an abandoned nuthouse in ye olde England, the mask worn by Franks was made from polycell expanding foam polyfilla, costing around R400, while the body infections are a combination of wood, latex and body paint.

Cosplayer: Emma Franks. Make-up Artist: JWBeyond. Photographer: Innershadows Photography.

Artist Transforms Famous Paintings Into Realistic 3D Furry Artworks

Furry Lisa (Mona Lisa by Leonardo da Vinci)

Classical art has been an inspiration for many artists who try to constantly bring the artworks back to life with an original spin. Turkish art director and illustrator Murat Yıldırım imagined how famous paintings would look if they were made of fur and as a result, six of the world’s greatest art masterpieces got a hairy makeover in the “Furry Artworks” series by this Istanbul-based creative.

“I had not produced reproductions before. I wanted to try something that hadn’t been done before, and that’s why I developed this technique,” Yıldırım told Bored Panda.

Furry Night (The Starry Night by Vincent van Gogh)

Among the classical paintings that were transformed into recognizable furry abstractions are Girl with a Pearl Earring by Johannes Vermeer, Mona Lisa by Leonardo da Vinci, The Starry Night by Vincent van Gogh, The Persistence of Memory by Salvador Dalí, The Scream by Edvard Munch, and Impression, Sunrise by Claude Monet. Although these artworks are digital renderings, they look so real and oddly satisfying that you just want to reach out and stroke the thick fur.

Furry Girl with a Pearl Earring (Girl with a Pearl Earring by Johannes Vermeer)

“It has long been common to reproduce the world’s most famous paintings by imitation. In this abstract idea, I used furs as a creative tool to move world-famous paintings forward. With this effect, I combined the colors of all pictures in an innovative and vibrant way. I have been impressed by classical paintings since my childhood. However, since modern art has become digital, I have turned all this into my favorite 3D artwork,” the artist introduced the project on Behance.

The Furry Persistence of Memory (The Persistence of Memory by Salvador Dalí)

The Furry Artworks series has been at the top of Behance’s special selection for 3 months. Behance founder Scott Belsky awarded the Furry Artworks series with the title of “the most innovative reproduction technique of 2020.” Belsky was so impressed with Yıldırım’s creativity that he became a proud owner of one of the artworks, Furry Lisa.

Furry Impression, soleil levant (Impression, Sunrise by Claude Monet)

“Have long believed that creativity is the world’s greatest recycling program, and these wild (and furry) abstract imitations we featured on Behance by Turkey-based Murat Yildirim are an awesome example of how everything is a riff on everything, and today’s ‘remix generation’ isn’t as new as we think,” Scott Belsky wrote on his Instagram.

These fluffy works have been auctioned off on SuperRare, a digital art marketplace where people can bid on NFT (Non-Fungible Token) art using cryptocurrency, and each piece has been sold.

Sujata Setia Photographed Kids With Incredible Hair

According to Sujata Setia: “I would not make little children wear wigs for the sake of photography,” was the very first comment I received when I started posting images of these beautiful children on my social media handles. And every time I deleted one such comment, another one cropped up.

More: Sujata Setia h/t: boredpanda

But the truth is that I started this photo series because I wanted to bring to light the fact that “biases based on hair texture” is not just a concept… it is a real thing and that little child have to face it at many junctures in their life.”

“People always want to touch her hair! Friends call it fluffy. It makes her so upset and she wonders sometimes why her hair is not like all others,” said Mimi’s mother to me when I went to photograph her with her little brother in Dubai.”

“Once I sent these images to the families of these children, one of the mothers wrote back to me saying “I can’t stop looking at the photos. It’s made a massive impact on Ava. She really gets down about her hair and she even wanted to cut it, but after this photoshoot you did with her, I showed her the photos and said to her, look how beautiful you are and she had the biggest smile on her face. She has now found confidence, which she was missing for so long. Even seeing the other girls with hair like hers helped so much.”

“My aim for this photoshoot was to only make these children experience the magical world of childhood and forget about absolutely everything else for once. This is why I took them to locations where they could freely spend time with each other in the company of furry animals.”

“When they are out and about when they have their hair out… you hear whispers and looks or people pointing,” said Adanya’s mother to me. But over the course of this photoshoot, there were no whispers; just loud laughter. There was no one pointing fingers; just holding hands. There were no strange looks passed; just looks of affection and understanding.”
