These Nostalgic Things Are Now Totally Forgotten… (25 PICS)

Walking into a Hot Topic and having the entire front half of the store be filled with Twilight merch:

When you'd install a game onto your PC and it required four or more discs for just ONE basic game:

Crossing Over With John Edward — which would always creep you out whenever he'd communicate with a dead relative of someone in his audience:

The flat EarPods that came with iPods:

iPod socks, which always seemed like the flimsiest protection for your precious player:

Izismile Video Collection

iPod transmitters that never really ever worked:

Hilary Duff's Stuff clothing line, which she sold through Target:

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen's clothing line that they had at Walmart:

The two or three "Geek Squad" Volkswagen Beetles you would always see parked in front of Best Buy whenever you'd go there:

Linens 'n Things, which was the other store your mom would go to when she couldn't find what she was looking for at Bed Bath & Beyond:

Microsoft's Zune player, which your one friend who owned one would always tout 'cause you could share music through "tapping":

Cellphones that supported iTunes — which was a big sell before the iPhone existed:

Abercrombie & Fitch's upscale sister store, Ruehl No. 925, which — aside from managing somehow to be darker inside than both A&F and Hollister — sold basically the exact same clothes:

Sarah Jessica Parker as the spokesperson for the Gap, and the delightful commercials she did for them:

P. Diddy as the spokesperson for Proactiv, and claiming that it would "moisturize my situation and preserve my sexy":

How EVERYONE was doing Sudoku puzzles:

Da Vinci Code mania and all the History Channel specials it inspired:

When 7-Eleven stores around the country were converted into Kwik-E-Marts to promote The Simpsons Movie...

...and the food products seen on The Simpsons that you could buy inside them:

Emeril Lagasse and the "BAM!" catchphrase he would say on Emeril Live:

Those portable DVD players that you would attach to the backs of car seats:

The tickets you would have to get and take to the front counter in order to buy a video game at Toys "R" Us:

The branded microwave popcorn that Blockbuster had in its checkout line (that everyone ended up buying):

Livestrong bracelets in this plastic packaging — that were usually put in large, clear bowls at the checkout counters of Foot Lockers:

And, finally, those Girls Gone Wild commercials that played at midnight (usually on MTV, E!, and Comedy Central):

This isn't nostalgia. In fact, barring one or two, these are things I happily forgot about. Livestrong bracelets and Twilight? (eyeroll)

It's just stuff that once existed and I don't miss any of these things. The Blockbuster popcorn was always disappointing and I hated getting there and all the new releases were already rented out so you'd have to settle for some second tier film or game.
