I Love the 90s MC thread

    All this Nogastalgia I get out of the 90s I find is often activated via music. Esp. The Who, Aerosmith, Lou Reed / The Velvet Underground, Daft Punk, Pet Shop Boys,Cher, The Cure and most of all Leonard Cohen. These artists tend to remind me of my childhood in the 90s, despite very few came out of the 90s. But they embody the atmospher of how I felt then, and where I used to live. I think watching SST did something for me too. Everytime I think of the 90s, I can't help but think of New York. The 90s SST I saw I think really influenced me in the way that I will always see New York, Esp. The Bronx/ Brooklyn / Manhattan are all inside of me, and I shall always see ALL of NYC as an idylic place because of that. And of that, I am forever greatful. The Tv is the other thing that really does me in. Watching SST does that, as does some other shows I remember from when I was little.



    Maybe I wrote all of my feelings just then because I am listening to Leonard Cohen.:cool:

    Yeah, I mean, I'm the exact same. During the 1990s, I actually never listened to 90s music (there's some good stuff, but there's quite a bit that just didn't appeal to me I guess), I listened to the stuff my folks prolly listened to at my age (or a little older in their case, I s'pose). I grew up listening to a bit of classical, movie scores (like John Williams' stuff), some 80s (esp. Spandau Ballet), a little bit of 70s (Pink Floyd, Rick Wakeman), but mostly 1960s music, during the mod/flower-power era (...that explains a lot!), like: Jimi Hendrix, The Who, The Doors, Scot Mac The Small Faces... stuff like that, good stuff. And still whenever I hear them it still Takes Me Back. =D The weird thing is, I may hear a song and go, "This song reminds me of the time..." and I only heard it last year. And, even weirder yet, I may hear a song I've never heard in my life (and "oldish" song) and I'll think, wow... this song really brings back memories... it's really odd, as though somebody else's memories are imprinted in my brains, gah. Sorry if I'm confusing anyone. XD

    Yeah, I did watch a lot of TV as a kid, but I think it inspired me a lot, with my art and the like. Even if it's just 10 yeas old, it's still interesting to see how far we've come since then, and the culture at the time and the like.

    I know I listened to Alanis Moriesette (probably spelled that wrong :p) and No Doubt, but I don't have huge memories of going out and buying tons of CDs. I was really more about movies and such. But I was a 90s teen, and still watched cartoons. I wasn't so much into "teen culture" at that time.
  4. Kiki Active Member

    Actually, I quite like Alanis Morrisette (dunno I ya spell it! XD) and No Doubt. They were good artists from the 90s. I didn't mind the grunge stuff, either.
  5. ryhoyarbie Active Member

    There's some 90's bands/singers that wre great. Ace Of Base was really popular, along with MC Hammer (the man had some great hits), Green Day, Duran Duran, and others.
  6. The Shoe Fairy Active Member

    I swear, I must be the biggest Green Day fan ever, I have all their albums, most of the singles and heaps of live misc. stuff. I can't wait for the new album in about a months time.
  7. Nick22 Active Member

    i wasnt alive for too much of the 90s, but i have an extremely good memory and i can remember so much, and it was such a fun time in my life. those 3 years were awesome. i didnt have too many friends, but i was happy anyway. i LOVED sesame street. i remember a couple years ago i was going through all my old stuff and there was so many sesame street tapes and stuff. my dad said that me and my brother used to listen to the hanson brothers.
  8. bazooka_beak Active Member

    LOL! Hanson, my sister loved those guys. To this day I can still get "Mmbop" stuck in my head.
  9. Kiki Active Member

    Hmm, here are some 90s(/early-2000's, I'm young) memories. They might not apply to everyone though, because I'm Australian and we have different products and such..

    1. Being jealous of friends because they owned a Gameboy, even before the colour ones (..but I got one :D)

    2. Remembering when Pokemon was on prime-time on channel 10 (It was also on Cheez TV, though).

    3. Watching Cheez TV (now called Toasted) or The Cool Zone.

    4. Thinking putting body-glitter all over your face and "sticker" earrings on the side of your eyes were cool (I still do. Sorta XP).

    5. Having a Dollarmites account (I didn't have one, actually. But my friends did. Although I do remember the mascots).

    6. Card collecting!

    7. Simpsons comics. =D

    8. Eating Bubble-O-Bills (an icecream in the shape of a cowboy's face, and his nose was a ball of bubblegum).

    9. Eating as many Warheads as you can.

    10. The health-ed bus would visit your school, and they had a puppet Giraffe called Harold. Who never spoke.

    11. Space Jam! =D

    12. ..And Furbys!

    13. The Nesquik ads where the bunny was drinking Nesquick from a pool.

    14. Trolls dolls were popular (even though they've been around forever..)

    15. There was a Burger King very briefly in Aus.

    16. Goosbumps books and the TV show (the dummy scared me soooo much)

    17. Terry Denton illustrations in books. =D

    18. All the old shows they showed on ABC: Sesame Street, The Secret Life of Toys, The Storyteller, Widget, Lizzie's Library, Lift Off! The Ferals... and Nicktoons. :D

    19. Those slap braclets that had animals faces on them.

    20. Tamagotchi's... and, later on, Digimons.

    21. DOOZIES!

    22. Yowies and Kinder Surprises.

    23. "Cartoon gansta" tops (usually Loony Toons).

    25. "Jelly" shoes.

    26. Agro!

    27. TMNT! And Power Rangers. =D

    28. Sonic the Hedgehog and Sailor Moon.

    29. "...NOT!"

    30. Glow in the dark stickers.

    31. Disney Adventures mags. =D

    32. Push-Pops!

    33. "Hey-Hey It's Saturday" (...I remember the last ep!)

    34. Saved by the Bell!

    35. Tazos... esp. Loony Tunes and The Simpsons. ^^
  10. The Shoe Fairy Active Member

    Woah. Just woahmg. Deja vu to the extreme. Was Lizzie's Library that "every day's a happy library day" theme song show? Ihave been wondering for ages.
  11. The Shoe Fairy Active Member

    I think you may love the 90s if you absolutley LOVE 90s alt. music, like Sonic Youth, Placebo, Jane's Addiction, Nirvana, Green Day, Spin Doctors and the synthpop stuff like Pet Shop Boys and Cher's 90s releases. And If you are slowly covering a brand new pair of chucks with Sonic Youth motives, and Brian Molko is your biggest idol.

    EDIT: And the Beastie Boys And Blur AND The Verve ^^
  12. bazooka_beak Active Member

    1. Yep, I had one. Got it for either my birthday or Christmas. Still have it somewhere.

    11. Boy, I do remember the hype around this one! I believe I saw it in theaters.

    12. The furby craze was CRAZY, wasn't it? Just nuts, and I still don't get why XD

    14. I had a whole bunch of those, there was a store near my house that had them all over the place.

    16. I was too old by then but my sister loved these books. I also remember going to Disney World and having my picture taken with my cousins in a "mock" Goosebumps cover (I believe it was the dummy one).

    20. I had a few of those... they didn't last long XD

    25. "Jelly" shoes are from the 90s? Must've been very early 90s, because I had those as a kid. Either that or they made some kind of comeback.

    31. Collected those :) Too bad it's long gone.

    34. Watched it every Saturday at a friend's house. Came on at either 11 am or noon, can't remember.

  14. bazooka_beak Active Member

    Oh for heaven's sake, you younglings are making me feel so old XD
  15. ryhoyarbie Active Member

    They're making me feel old too.

    Anytime I see late 90's/2000's on there, that's past me.
  16. bazooka_beak Active Member

    ^ We should probably both invest in a walker or wheelchair, because the same babies who were born around when I graduated high school will be teens in a few years. Then they'll say, "Ah, 2007, that was the year when... wasn't it so nostalgic? Those were the good old days". ACK.
  17. ryhoyarbie Active Member

    I actually can't think of anything nostaglic from the late 90's all the way to now.

    Early 90's and 80's is when things were good.
  18. JJandJanice Active Member

    1995 was the year we got probably one of the best animated movies of all time...

    Talking about Disney Pixar's Toy Story of course
  19. bazooka_beak Active Member

  20. Pork Active Member
