Louisiana, How Many of these Fads of the 2000s Do You Remember?
Louisiana is a state built on tradition. Okay, a state built on tradition and food. Those are the things that keep us living here along the bayou. And, those things, traditions, and foods are among the top draws that bring visitors to visit us every year. Now, that doesn't mean we're not open to trying new things.
I once heard traditions defined as "peer pressure from dead people". I can't say that isn't true. But if traditions are born of the peer pressure of the past, then where do fads come from?
In today's connected world, I guess it's safe to say fads can now come from anywhere and any place where anybody with a camera, microphone, and an internet connection can become an overnight sensation and then fade into oblivion.
The first decade of the new millennium proved to be a rather busy and fruitful time for fads that swept not only Louisiana but the rest of the nation and the world. It was interesting to see how many people latched on to the fads and then quickly denied their existence as "the coolness" of the activity faded away.
The unfortunate truth is that while the fad may have faded away, the videos and pictures of you participating in that fad are still right there on the Internet where you left them. The good news is that in about another ten years a new generation will rediscover your old pictures and videos and the same old fad will become new again.
How many of these once-popular activities did you participate in? Do you still have the objects needed to recreate the fad action? If you do, hang on to them, they could be worth a lot of money when "everything old becomes new again".
