Do you guys remember the 90s?
I was just 3 years old at the end of 1990. My sister was born in '91. I remember these days. Filled with awesome shows on TV and awesome music. Cassette tapes. VHS. Oh yeah. Good times.
Butterfly hair clips
Silver-blue nail polish
Pipes (Jeans, does anyone remember these? I wore them)
Buffy the Vampire Slayer (Movie and Show)
VH1 - Pop up Video (remember this?!?!)
Starship Troopers (just saw this the other night! It’s so bad it’s good - I LOVE IT!)
Usher - AKA Ursher
The Beastie Boys - KICK IT!
Barbie Girl - OMG REMEMBER THIS SONG?!?!
All the teenage “romance” movies
Scream - FUCK YES, good movie
There’s just too much to list…
This was a good time. I wish I would have been a little older during this time. There are a few time periods that I’m really drawn to. The 40s because of the swinging slang, cigarettes, hard liquor, and swinging jazzy music. I wish so bad I could just go back in time to see a big band play at a sweet little joint while I’m in a half-moon booth, drinking and smoking, dressed to the 9s. Another time period is the late 60s/early 70s. Why? Music, no bras, mind-expanding drugs, lime green shag carpets, mystery machine vans, beards and mustaches, the sense of freedom, road trips, guitars with owners with no homes. And finally the 90s. Think of all the diversity in the types of groups in the 90s. You’ve the got the valley girl really coming into her own - probably development starting in the 80s. You’ve got the sexy grunge folks with their shredded jeans and tossed hair looking all sexy and shit. Oozing sex and a fuck you attitude. Then you’ve got the rappers like Dr. Dre and Snoop D O double G creating a crowd with baggy pants and “I’ll bust a cap in yo ass” language. Oh, and how I could forget? The Goth folk. Living in the dark…praying to the devil. Practicing Wicca and watching The Craft on repeat. Haha. I love it all.
And where was I? Well, let’s see. I was born in '87. So, 1997 I was 10. I was drawn to it all. Didn’t pick just ONE thing. I listened to rap and got off to some of that music - ha. I embodied the skater kid at that age. I wore vans. I wore jeans, wide leg. My jeans were usually ripped at the knees because I played on my knees. And usually just a plain tee. My hair was super long, like probably to my lower back. I loved the vampire movies. I wanted to be bitten and live forever! I loved the spice girls, cause girl power and shit. Just good times.
I’m listening to 90s music right now that’s why I’m amped towards this decade right now.
Where were you guys in the 90s? Did you feel the culture shifting? Did you like it? What “group” did you most identify with?
