Default Re: Living in the mid-90's > any era

I love the nineties, but no way I'm going back.

My advice, don't like facebook? Don't use it. I don't. Just ****ing quit it. You might have a few people ask why you aren't on, but so what?

Don't like the state of the economy? Learn to program or heal people.

Yeah popular music and sitcom television are not as good, so what? There is still great music being made, you just have to dig deeper to find it. Honestly everyone's life would improve drastically if they stopped wasting time with TV.

The best thing the nineties brought was the internet and that is way better now.

90s = no ISH.

Those two things plus Seinfeld.

Remember when you actually could buy a little machine and all it did was rewind video tapes?

Using a pencil to rewind or forward a cassette tape that had messed up?

Aol?

Tecmo Bowl?

Topanga?

This isn't the greatest era for movies. Too many needless remakes, reboots, sequels and such. I do agree with you on some other things, though.

People look at the past through rose-colored glasses. Of course everything seemed so much better when you didn't have any real worries in the world, didn't have big responsibilities, barely any stress, no bills, etc... Life is easy when you're a kid. And, DW is correct about nostalgia. It can have a strong grip.

What's the point of this? There were many cheesy/lame action movies back then, and I could really do without Stallone's awful acting and incomprehensible mumbling.

Wish I saw some of the 70's though.

90's ruled. So much easier to get a blow job then.

There was some spill over though. I was buying new GI Joe toys up until 94 or 95. Although the cartoon was 80s it was designed to sell the toys. The toys came first and the toys were made until the 90s :)

That's not transformers. That's Voltron. Get it right.

The majority of the toys were mid late 80s. By the 90's they were an afterthought.
