The 1990’s are my golden age. The music, the movies, the world. Most people long for the days that they were in high school, but lemme tell ya–2000-2003 were not that grand. Apart from holding onto my first relationship those years, and playing a little hide-n-seek in the cornfields, it kinda sucked. Y2K was nothing, and then there was 9/11, not to mention heading off to college was some looming travesty for me.
BUT, everything turned out great, and the college years have a golden sheen on them, too. To be honest, everything in my life has been pretty golden. I suppose it’s just that the 1990’s are the decade that I long for…much in the way that I long for the 1950’s (even though I’ve never been there).
The 1990’s to me were odd and wonderful, grungy and poppy, Chumbawumba lovin’, teenyboppin’, horrible dance hit Hammer-Pants, Salutin’ my shorts and watching cartoons that I wasn’t supposed to.
So the first reason the 1990’s were golden to me?
U-Dip, U-Host, U-Pick! It was effing brilliant! And he’d let you pick you own shows, pick what to dip him in! Seriously, best host ever. I wish he would have been a VJon MTV (although Jesse Camp kind of rocked my world).
And Nickelodeon offered the best cartoons/television shows, some of which I will delve into at a later date) (Thanks, Wiki!):
