This weeks Top Ten Tuesday (hosted by The Broke and the Bookish) is Top Ten Books For People Who Like X Book. I had a hard time with a similar topic a few weeks ago and I would probably just repeat some of those so rather than bore you all with a similar list I’m giving you the top ten reasons why I love (and miss) the 90’s.
In no particular order.
You couldn’t possibly get through the 90’s without a little TLC. This was my first CD… ever. It was released in 1994 and is still one of my favorites. It’s a tough call between “Creep” and “Waterfalls” as to which one is my favorite.
2. Hocus Pocus
It’s not Halloween without a little Hocus Pocus. I’ve watched it every year since it’s release in 1993. I’m not kidding. Every. Year. If you’ve never seen this movie, why not?
3. Kristi Yamaguchi
She won gold in the 92 Winter Olympics. I was completely obsessed with figure skating and I even wrote her a letter.
4. OJ Simpson
Whether you think he was guilty or not guilty doesn’t really matter. He was all anyone talked about my freshman year in high school. It was everywhere, you couldn’t escape him and that glove if you wanted too.
Nevermind was released in 1991, but I wasn’t really into them until after Kurt Cobain died. I was in middle school listening to the radio at a friends when they were doing a Nirvana marathon after his death and one listen of “Smells Like Teen Spirit” was all it took for me to be hooked. It’s one of my favorite songs ever, though I’m still not certain I know all the words. Cobain wasn’t exactly articulate.
6. Slap Bracelets
What kid didn’t love these? What parent didn’t hate them?
7. Aqua “Barbie Girl”
Released in 1997 this song completely swept everyone away. Then Mattel took offense and the song was pulled from the radio, but that only made the song more cool. It’s ridiculous and fun, if you haven’t heard it you should check it out (the video is good for a laugh too).
8. Beverly Hills 90210
Oh Dylan. Dylan wasn’t the nicest of the bunch but he was sooo cool. Pretty much everything about this show was awesome, the Walsh’s, Kelli, Donna, Andrea, Steve, David and yeah, I just named them all off the top of my head. My second favorite show of all time.
My favorite TV show ever. I won’t wow you all by naming all the characters again (cause really, there are tons). Instead I’ll tell you my favorite episodes. The one where Dr Ross saves the kids from drowning in the river, the train wreck episode, the one where Carter got stabbed (my all time favorite), just to name a few.
10. Office Space
Stapler anyone? How about some flair? Maybe you need a little extra cash? Or maybe you have a boss that’s less than pleasant.
Watch the movie to find out what I’m talking about.
