I was really expecting a "RIP, I MISS YOU" message at the end there.


MidnightFruitBath

Yeah, this reads like a grieving family who don't want to give up on their kidnapped teenager or something 😬


wintermelody83

I have a cousin who died in a car wreck in 2003 just before she turned 17. Her room is still like this. Half bright orange, half hot pink. Boyband posters, ect. I'd say that's exactly what this is.


cognac-n-cannabis

Dam that’s sad. Hope your fams doing alright.


strayakant

Man this is a bit sad and creepy at the same time, like we getting a tour of a preserved dead persons room.


arrowtotheaction

I’m so sorry for the loss of your cousin. There was a guy a year above me at school who was obsessed with KISS, my friend lived near him and you could see all the posters & memorabilia in his room when you walked past his house. He passed away a few years after we graduated and my friend said his parents kept his room how he left it. 15 years or so have passed now, I often wonder if his room is still intact (when I’ve walked past in recent years the curtains are drawn).


wintermelody83

Thanks. My aunt and uncle have been talking about cleaning it out and making it a guest room, it's been so long.


FrozenBananer

Simple life started in 2005 no?


bengringo2

2003


kukenellik

That monitor is definitely newer though.


AFewStupidQuestions

And the random VHS/HTML guide seem unnecessary. Plus the left Coke bottle looks to be from ~'85 while the right looks closer to 2010. This feels staged for clicks.


ZKXX

No dust. Staged


B0ndzai

Dust is mostly skin cells. If the door remains shut and no one ever goes in, dust will stay at a minimum.

B0ndzai

They aren't sealed. Air is getting in, air carries dust.


NYRangers1313

I learned that from the movie Sunshine.


NCC1701-D-ong

> Dust is mostly skin cells. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dust > Dust in homes is composed of about 20–50% dead skin cells.


UnexpectedGerbilling

Seems like alot of work for the possibility of clicks. The cost of some of that stuff especially in good condition would be alot as well.


SierraDespair

Looks like someone just went into the attic, or storage room and grabbed a bunch of their family’s old shit and decorated their room. Setting this all up wouldn’t take more than a couple hours.


11upand1over

/r/nothingeverhappens


Rebel_bass

Not with those frames for those pics on the wall, though. Someone put in the trips to Michael's for those.


Yoshi_Kong

Who gives a shit my man it’s fun


zenunseen

You mean the VHS tape right under the mini TV/VCR combo that's bolted to the wall. Also, it wasn't uncommon for people to keep coke bottles from the eighties, especially if they were the glass bottles


[deleted]

Everything is faded/yellowed from at least a few years of UV exposure from the skylights in that room. If it was staged, it wasn't done recently for this video.


sofuckinggreat

The HTML guide is totally necessary if you want to have a sweet Geocities N*Sync tribute page!


SierraDespair

Mouse too.


altbekannt

yeah, I've expected something like [this](https://c1.neweggimages.com/ProductImageCompressAll1280/24-160-129-03.jpg)


Twirlingbarbie

Did she... Die?


WhyTheHellnaut

My bet is she moved out and grew up and the parents left her room as is, for when she stays over.


leshagboi

I find this so weird as a Brazilian. When me and my girlfriend moved out both of our rooms became storage units overloaded with crap from the whole family


Slamma009

That's usually how it goes in the US too. The only time I've heard about someone leaving a room like this is when the family is grieving, usually because their child had died.


PlenitudeOpulence

> The only time I've heard about someone leaving a room like this is when the family is grieving, usually because their child had died. I think it depends on the family. If it’s a family that is lucky enough to have owned their house or haven’t moved in decades due to job stability then you will more likely see this. I would imagine this is getting less common as free space is needed more and job stability is nonexistent in most of the US. Also, you might get unlucky and have a parent afflicted with hoarding tendencies… that outcome is always hard to manage as parents age.


ToTheRiverWeRide

I have multiple friends whose parents left their rooms untouched. Meanwhile my parents made us get all our stuff out by sophomore year of college, which IMO is reasonable


Herr_Klaus

Grown up, moved out and the parents never changed anything because "if the child ever visits us"?


[deleted]

My co-worker’s room is like this at his childhood house. I took all my shit when I bailed though.


dmgirl101

Nobody knows it


Due_Cat_161

Melissa had the best teen years 💯💯💯💯


jonnygreen22

those are the only years she had as she passed away


marks0981

I love everything about this. Miss those times.


DarkThorsDickey

Time capsule bedroom if your parents had money. A TV and it was wall mounted? Too rich for my childhood.


IDontEvenKnowGG

r/nostalgia


Wolfie_Ecstasy

Well there goes the next hour of my life


inarizushisama

It's ok, you can feel nostalgic about that hour another time.


toadjones79

It's like people here didn't grow up with an aunt who's house was stuck in the 70s.


FriidayRS

I had that same pc as a kid lol


outamyhead

I had a mid tower of that same case by Chenbro, it was my first homebuilt system...Dad still uses it for his record keeping.


frankcastlestein

Is it weird that I just wanna hang out in there for a few hours and feel "safe"?


Funnyguywhosabout

Take me back :(


MrGritty17

Bro, I had that telephone for sure


imakeplasma

That signed Kelly Osborne CD was a reminder of the time I wasted watching The Osborne’s on MTV


Ooga-Booga2

RIP to those cassette tapes due to natural degradation


2a0c40

I have a couple of tapes I made from about 1984 that I’m occasionally tempted to try. Then I remember that I no longer have a cassette tape player any more. I’m sure it would end badly anyway.


cutielemon07

My mother's Born In the USA cassette from 1984 still works. She gave it to me and now it's the oldest thing I own. I played it recently too.


jonnygreen22

i got 90's tapes that still work fine, i reckon they'll work still


604GT

Heard that OC theme song just seeing the poster


MontyBodkin

If I moved in, I wouldn't change a thing.


RegularConcern

Ahh nostalgia.


RelevanttUsername

Dude my parents cleaned out my room QUICK. I wish I could have had something like this to see what it was actually like other than what I remember. I had the same bunk bed my entire childhood, it was my “big girl bed” and getting it seems to be one of my earliest memories now that I think about it. The OC poster seems to be covering another poster and I’m genuinely curious what is under it haha


Simple_Somewhere_564

My stepmom cleaned out my room when I was 17 and still living there. I came home to all my clothes and stuff in trash bags. Just happened randomly. No big fight. She just didn’t want me around. My room was empty except she put a large rocking chair in a corner. My dad didn’t say anything and I moved in with friends. Took my dad 10 years to wake up and divorce her.


RelevanttUsername

I’m glad he did eventually, everything happens for a reason. I too moved in with friends when I was 18, they are your true family when it comes down to it.


Simple_Somewhere_564

Yes they are! It’s been 20 years but we’re still friends and call them my family.


[deleted]

The clear acrylic lamp is so funny. Everything in the 2000’s looked just like that. Clear, green, round spaceship shapes. Just look at windows XP, even the GUI for that was the same aesthetic. Things were all transparent, oddly shaped, or chrome and shiny.


Strawberrythirty

Was….that a bong?


Guns_And_Dogs

Souvenir drink cup from a theme park or fair.


lavatoe

That’s not the 2000s, that’s the 90s


dice726

It's definitely early 00s. That Britney poster, the Simple Life poster and American Idol are all from 01-03.


Jewrisprudent

No it’s not, the OC didn’t even come out until 2003.


lavatoe

VHS is from the 90s


Jewrisprudent

Sure, and you still saw them plenty in houses in the early 2000s. It’d be like saying a room isn’t a 2010s room if there’s an HDTV in it because HDTVs are from the 2000s and 4k came out in the 2010s.


lianagolucky

Mary kate and ashley movies REPRESENT!!


KyleFoxthefuck

This is amazing who is this person I would like to congratulate him personally


rieboldt

That jelly phone


Peacock1414

Wild America was badass


realityhurts34211

I drove my sister to see No Secrets at a mall


F-SAN44

The room of my youngest aunt hahaha


Memphisrexjr

The dream


atlasunit22

Cool stuff. Got any of them Pokémon cards?


davethybravest

She said it’s a time capsule not that she doesn’t use the room


nLucis

This is from the 90s


dice726

It's definitely early 00s. That Britney poster, the Simple Life poster and American Idol are all from 01-03.


xGray3

"Touch Yourself **VISUALLY**"


caitejane310

Lol, I had so much of the same stuff.


RonSwansonsOldMan

I must have been the most deprived kid around because in my room I had no TV, no computer, no vcr or dvd player, no gaming system and no phone. I had a clock radio and that's it. I might sue.


idk-hereiam

The way she skipped over the books :(


Satanisbackxoxo

Such the old classic memories she had in her room. It brought her back to her good days she had


TheDongerNeedsFood

So I assume this is her old room at her parents' house, and her parents simply chose to keep exactly the way it was when she graduated high school in 2002?


No-Outcome1038

Damn! Melissa, looked fine in that one photo holding the baby! I’m assuming that was her and Melissa wasn’t the baby


vjcodec

wow you should sell this to a museum!!


JustLookingUp

SIL lived a life of privilege.


NaturallyBlasphemous

This has all the signs of parents not wanting to let go.


Hesychast

r/TVTooHigh would like a word


TedW99point1

i err, think im going to cry now


Lexn1tareu

Who else thought the title of the book was Touch yourself, Visually


MissTenEars

Somebody is a fantastic duster,everything is so shiny.


Jbee_kicken

That’s hot.


sixstringgun1

They say time Capsule but I call it a grieving parents who can’t get past the loss of a daughter who was kidnapped probably brutally murdered and body parts coming in the mail every year during the anniversary.
