1990’s Nostalgia – Nickelodeon

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?

GAH my world revolved around Nickelodeon!  Remember in the summertime, they’d have Stick Stickly in the afternoon?  I LOVED him.

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!):
