Surprisingly, that was one of the few songs I actually liked back then.

Well...I've been through lots of changes in musical tastes through the year. I lean towards Metal/Nu-Metal/Classic Rock these days...but I was all over the place before the personality makeover between 8th and 9th grade.

Speaking of band, you know the drum majors of the 90s had to wear those giant skirts?

And I was also a die-hard Power Rangers fan back when cheesy graphics were acceptable. But now that I think about it, the new episodes also have the cheesy graphics! Now I can't tell if it's an old episode or a new episode!

And why were the Asian and black guy the Yellow and Black Ranger respectively?!

One thing from the 90's I can live without is Vanilla Ice. God damn.... God damn. :lol:

I've been listening to too much Weird Al polka lately.

Was Eminem from the 90s or 2000s?

In the 90's, we Cheeseheads witnessed the rise of arguably the greatest NFL quarterback of all time.

Ted Kaczynski made letter bombs funny again.

Annual natural disasters in Los Angeles amused the rest of the nation. (Northridge Earthquake, Rodney King riots, wildfires, landslides, etc.)

The collapse of the Soviet Union forced everyone to learn like 50 new countries.

Independence Day became the funniest unintentionally funny movie of the decade.

Saturday Night Live entered it's second golden age; an age that ended with the departure of Will Farrell.

I discovered a hobby in maps which has translated into a career as cartographer.

And as the decade drew to a close, northern Wisconsin finally got a local FOX affiliate, thus screwing me out of my daily double shot of Simpsons reruns for the rest of high school when our cable provider dropped the east coast satellite feed in favor of the new station.

Man, my blonde friend is obsessed with that song!

Sorry to bring up anime, but I remember Sailor Moon use to play after school, but it was always towards the end of the epispde, so I figured I'd get off five houses away from my house and make it in time. Apparently, it didn't work.

Well, Neon Genisis Evangelion is from the 90s, but it didn't come on Adult Swim until 2006.

I hear it got taken off because of Rei's boobs.

Oh, gawd...I shouldn't have asked.

:stanpuke:

Does anyone remember the big Nor'easter of 1994? I was still a little kid then, but I remember clearly that my dad's car was completely buried in snow for quite a while! Oooh...and the pretty Christmas lights strung up in the dead trees in the apartment courtyards where I used to live...

Argh!! I miss the cold and snow so much!

The closest thing we get to that where I live is ice in my freezer.

Yeah, Christmas was better in the 90's. :cry:

Sucks, for me anyway, now.

All we ever have these days when it comes to Christmas is the commercialism and fancy TV commercials...and Wal-Mart.

><

Back then, it was so sweet and innocent...with the traditional hot cocoa by the fire at the ski-house and the Christmas tree in the living room (at least for me). Now it's 'What are you getting me' from my parents and random people at school...

*sigh*

Exact opposite for me. The commercialism was sucked out from me about 4 years ago. Now, it's about sitting by a fire with your immediate family. I used to get all the new video games and such. Now, nothing. :lol:

it only snowed three times down here: sometime in the 50s, then in the 80s, and in 2004. And I missed all of them! :( Thankfully, global warming will take its course, so Edd and I might see some snow... eventually.

Back on topic, Nintindo goes hard! Sorry, about the slang, but it's true! I use to play Super Smash Bros., Mario 64, Pokemon Snap, Sarge's Heroes, and all the 007 games. Where the hell is that freakin' thing anyway? I bet my brother sold it!

And here's this song I remember!

Jingle bells, Santa smells, Christmas really stunk!
I got nothing that I like, my gifts are all just junk!
Boxes full of clothes, CDs no one knows
When I want something for my Nintendo 64!
*something something something*'s cool
Gifts are all just mine!
WCW and NWO; that stuff should be mine!

Courage is still on during the week, at about 8:30, on CN.

Here's something from the mid-90's that's resurfaced... Beakman. Locally, channel 4 has started showing an hour of Beakman on the weekends again.

There's another show from about '90 or '91 about a family that had ventriloquist's dummy that "had a mind of his own" or something. It was possibly the second worst show ever, and it only lasted 6 episodes I think. I do remember that Allyce Beasly, and Curtis Armstrong guest starred in an episode, and it was just after Moonlighing ended so it must have been '90.

@ gtaca2005- Lucky, lucky... All I really want for Christmas is to spend at least a day with my family without ripping each other's ears out and arguing...and a hug and kiss from my (now short-haired) boyfriend...oh, and a few art supplies to replenish my stock for next year.

@ cheesypoofs857- I wish. We could do with a mini-Ice Age down here in the South... Yep...Nintendo was it for me. I think I explained earlier, but yeah...

Oooh, you should post that song over on the Random Song Parodies game thread!

:wink:
