Well, JP made me think the dinos were real, T2 didn't. :P

Also, the 90s' gave birth to some of the coolest directors starting with indie films: Kevin Smith with "Clerks", Richard Linklater with "Slacker", Quentin Tarantino with "Reservoir Dogs", Robert Rodriguez with "El Mariachi"... I could go on!

^ "Gay Cowboys Eating Pudding"

:lol:

"Blair Witch Project" rounded out those indies in '99. Anyone see that, and how many of you were thinking WTF after all that?

I loved Jurassic Park too! The first movie is the best! Did you see that stupid people who think it's the end of the world and kill themselves? Many of them suicided like Jesus... :shock:

What do Keanu Reeves, Anakin Skywalker and Kenny have in commom? They're the chosen one.

No, can't say as I did.

Hey, didn't Wallace and Grommit come out in the 90's?

I think so! I'd have to double-check on "A Grand Day Out," as it might be more '89, but they certainly caught on during the decade! Their first short on "Creature Comforts" was presented in '90, and got an award, I believe!

Update, 3/1: In '92, Utah Saints had a single with "Something Good," and YouTube has their new 2008 remix!

That looked like it was made at this National Park near the mountains of my city. I used to always joke to my friends that it actually was, and they believed me. :lol:

Another thing that made it big in the '90s was Beanie Babies. Remember when the earliest ones became really valuable?

Ugh, yes. What really got to me about those things is how most of the girls (and some of the guys) in High School would cover the dashboards, and back package trays of their cars with them. At least I was a tad more tasteful with my car interior. I had 1:18 scale die cast cars in my back window, and Matchbox cars across my dash. :lol:

You know what? There's another big article I don't think we ever really covered! And I'm not feelin' like combing through all the pages to make sure right now, so I'll just ask:

What were you doing that day in '97 when Princess Diana died?

I was just coming off of work, and got home in time to see the CNN report of the crash.

I don't remember where I was or what I was doing when I heard about Diana.

I believe everything, and I mean everythingwas better in the 90s. Those things include: the TV networks such as ABC, NBC, and FOX; some of the music was better as well as the radio stations. I think all of those things now suck, especially the radio stations where I live! :evil:
South Park is the bestest!!

I have one horrifying crippling memory from the 90's. When Mom was in the hospital getting a kidney transplant, the only thing I had to do to pass the time when she was in the OR was listen to my Walkman. That was the summer when the Spin Doctors "Pocket Full of Kryptonite" came out, and every other song on every other radio station was "Two Princes". There were more than a couple of times during those hours when I was waiting to hear something, that I would tune across the FM band and hear the song on 10 different stations at the same time. (Ok, maybe 3 or 4.)

I felt the same way when Whitney Houston's version of "I Will Always Love You" was played ad nauseum.

Yep, another '90s hit played to death.
