Say ‘yes’ to nostalgia.
Yestalgic is the amalgamation of growing up and still having an affinity to the sounds, sights and feelings that make us feel young. It’s an appreciation of things that we remember fondly, as well as an appreciation of the new things that people say we should grow out of.
I’ve loved cartoons and animation for as long as I can remember, and it hasn’t shown any signs of letting up. That’s not to say that I don’t enjoy the shit out of shows like Game of Thrones or Breaking Bad, but I’ve always felt like cartoons have had a lot to offer as a medium, and have been more or less ignored because we’re just “too old” to enjoy them.
Yestalgic is a rejection of that idea, and a complete indulgence in the things that make us feel childish.
