And WTF does that have to do with the 90s? Or is that just when the author was a kid and assumed they didn't exist before then?

1. CD-RW was a horrible, horrible format.
2. Still around.
3. I'm pretty sure I had relatives who did this to their hair. Or my female cousin, who had it longer, still curly, with a rat-tail. Seriously.
4. Abomination!
5. The author apparently (a) has no fingernails, and (b) is showing his ignorance off nicely with this one.
6. The product we know as Fun Dip is 70 farking years old, it only started getting called Fun Dip in 1989.
7. Goatees? You really think those were a solely 90's thing???
8. As a non-gamer, I have no idea what the fark the owl's doing.
9. Ahhh, the things we did to those discs.
10. Useful, but less so than rechargeables.
11. Author is again showing his age.
12. I assume that's something from Pokemon, which, again, IS STILL AROUND.
13. You're mocking Rugrats, when you could have easily gone with AARGH! Real Monsters?
14. DEFINITELY had relatives with this cut.
15. Again, non-gamer.
16. Honestly? Don't remember anyone who owned one in the 90s.
17. That moment was wiped once Scar fell to the hyenas.
18. I must geek out and say that that clip was of a not-so-good connection. Good connections didn't make it half as far into the noises.
19. Bratz didn't exist until 2001. FAIL.
20. VHS started in the 80s.
21. The UK ones started in the 80s. America didn't get them until 1998, and only got three in the 90s.
22. Still around.
23. Another very-late 90s thing. (Because really, we didn't get or care about how much of a dumbass Durst was until at least summer of '99, when "Nookie" hit.)

So to sum up, a quarter of the list is stuff that's still going strong, at least a quarter is stuff that predates the 90s, a quarter is stuff that had very little to do with *just* the 90s, and the Bratz FAIL. Just doing any little bit of research could've saved him from such a fail. And yet he has a job.

Real world pop culture stopped changing when teh Internets came along. Seriously, look at the difference between 1955 and 1965, or 1960 and 1970 in terms of hair, clothes, cars, music. 1975 to 1985 is the same way. Then tell me ANYTHING off line that looks/sounds different between 1995 and now. The phones are smaller. That's it. My '95 Civic blends in with all the slightly rounded new cars. The music is still dippy electronic pop, rap and rock. Any wardrobe item or haircut from 1995 wouldn't cause anyone to bat an eye today; even your Zubas and a mullet would just get sneered at a little more.

Not only do VHS predate the 90s, I still have about 100 of them and a great VCR. Clean that thing regularly and you won't get eaten tapes. I initially kept it for sentimental reasons, but now I let the kidlets use it. It's superior to DVDs when you have toddlers. They can't destroy a tape by covering it in fingerprints and scratches, they can change the movies themselves with relative ease, and if they drop or break them, I don't care. My sisters and I really put our Disney tapes through the ringer, and now they are still being viewed by my kids 25 years later.

Really? I think it's totally different thanks to the widespread adoption of the internet on mobile platforms, the two recessions, etc. Technology has changed drastically and reshaped how we communicate and what we communicate and how we do business. And politically, the 00s had more in common with the 80s than the 90s.

I'm guessing you don't remember the 80s very well and that's why it feels so radically different to you.


But the technology we have today isn't completely different than it was in the 90's, it's just logical extensions and evolutions of the same thing. I've been on the Internet since 1994, and although it's faster now, and there are more ads, content wise it's largely the same. Instead of trading VHS tapes, we share Youtube links, instead of e-mail addresses we have Facebook, but the leap from E-Mail to Facebook isn't nearly as radical as the leap from Snail Mail to E-Mail was. Smart Phones are great, sure, but it's just a different format to access the same thing, it's not nearly as big as the change between not having the Internet and then having it.

The number of things most people didn't have in the 80's, that they had in the 90's is way longer than the list of things most people have in the 2000's that they didn't have in the 90's.

I was traveling around so much trying to get rich I had no idea what was going on with pop culture. I didn't own a TV or see a movie for most of the decade. I started watching repeats of the X-Files in 2002 and thought it was the coolest thing ever. That's actually what led me to Fark.

Main thing I remember from the 90s was a bunch of 20 somethings really pissed off at the economy which also happened to be the healthiest in decades. Also 'Reality Bites' was seriously touted as a generation defining movie. Oh, and advertisers didn't know what the hell to do about the 'meh' culture and tried way too hard to show just how much they cared that you don't care.

The internet going completely mainstream as a commodity, particularly including online commerce, made a huge change in just about everything, and that really got going in the latter half of the 90s. So yeah, I agree with you.

Particularly for me this was a big deal as my world became smaller, I can now consume any media I want and pretty much buy any products I want from either of my two "home" countries without having to travel the earth, that alone is pretty damn revolutionary for my own life. Before e-commerce was a thing, even if you lived in one country only, if you lived in the hinterlands there was just all sorts of stuff you couldn't get, period.

Heck, just look at one of those threads showing how computers have changed in the last 10 years or whatever it is, and it's pretty amazing. I spent around $500 on 16M of RAM in 1995 and was the envy of many of my friends.

- America online
- finally going to sleep after eating cereal and watching the morning cartoons (ok, that was just me)
- pimping cars (please make that stop). I mean I like some additions to cars. But not EVERYTHING in the car, including a sound system that can literally shake the
car apart.
- at least 50% of the sitcoms
- anything and anyone that made it to CNN.

Decades do not start precisely on January 1st of a year ending in 0, nor do Pop Culture references define a decade.

40s - 1939 to 1953 - from begining of WW2 to end of Korean War
50s - 1953 to 1963 - end of Korean War to assasination of JFK
60s - 1963 to 1974 - from assasination of JFK to Watergate hearings
70s - 1974 to 1979 - from Watergate Hearings to Iran taking American Hostages
80s - 1979 to 1991 - from Iran taking American Hostages to First Gulf War
90s - 1991 to 2001 - from Iran taking American Hostages to 9-11

9-11 also marked the first day of the 21st century


I get where you're going.... but the Iran --- First Gulf War --- 9/11... do you really see those being the catalysts for huge cultural shifts? Everything before that I can see.

Also, the assasination of JFK... I'd replace that with the escalation of Vietnam. But its really the same time period, anyway.

If this idiot has kept her mouth shut (before or after, I don't really care), we'd have had a very different presidential election in 1999.

If that idiot had been able to keep it in his pants and resist the urge to dominate young, very naive women, there would have likely been a very different presidential election in 1999.

Bill Clinton was a democrat and therefore cannot be blamed for anything.

//Newt should have, too.
///Ken and Newt should not have turned Bill's open fly into a federal case.

Unless either Starr or Newt told Bill to engage in that activity, no, we really can't blame them. That would be like shooting the messenger and I'm sure you don't want to be doing that.


Newt was having his own affair with an intern at the time. Nobody made a federal case out of it. Can we blame Newt for not keeping it in his pants and Starr for having double standards?

No they didn't. It's a double negative. They forgot to forget therefore some of the best albums ever made came out of Seattle from 91-95. If you think "grunge" sucks then you didn't get it or were born too late.

Think of all that great rock from the early 2000s I mean Creed sold more albums than Jimi Hendrix so they were cool right???

Led Zeppelin, REM, and Depeche Mode have never had a number one single. Celine Dion's "Falling Into You" sold more copies than any AIC, Nirvana, or Pearl Jam record so she must be great and she's Canadian.



They probably should have included "Buffcoat and Beaver".

If this idiot has kept her mouth shut (before or after, I don't really care), we'd have had a very different presidential election in 1999.

I was about the come in here and defend goatees. Glad you beat me to it. Trimmed in well, they are classy and suitable for all occasions.

I could have a beard in days, but I don't like them. No ZZ top for me.

I don't know what's funnier, the fatass who thinks people can't see his double chin from the side or the other dipshiat that thinks goatees are classy.


They may still be around but they went out of style in the 90s. Still popular with rednecks and IT guys, they're basically the mullet of a new generation.

I didn't really have a problem with real monsters, but Rugrats gets an inordinate amount of love for a fairly obnoxious show. No matter what anyone claims, Rocko's was the best Nicktoon.

Rocko was good. I always liked Courage the Cowardly Dog.

Oh - and Ren & Stimpy, of course (but only when drinking or otherwise not sober)

purple and green EZ SQUIRT ketchup came out in the year 2000, so DEFINITELY not a 90s thing!

in 2003 i dated a girl who had a toddler. i'd buy blue parkay squeeze bottle margarine to make the mac & cheese green when it mix with the yellow cheese dye, and purple ketchup for our tater tots

mbillips: whatshisname: I think that list really shows how boring the 90's really were. There's nothing to love or hate. It was all just blah.

Real world pop culture stopped changing when teh Internets came along. Seriously, look at the difference between 1955 and 1965, or 1960 and 1970 in terms of hair, clothes, cars, music. 1975 to 1985 is the same way. Then tell me ANYTHING off line that looks/sounds different between 1995 and now. The phones are smaller. That's it. My '95 Civic blends in with all the slightly rounded new cars. The music is still dippy electronic pop, rap and rock. Any wardrobe item or haircut from 1995 wouldn't cause anyone to bat an eye today; even your Zubas and a mullet would just get sneered at a little more.


Spot on. Interestingly, the same could be said going backward from 1955. The difference between 1945 and 1935 wasn't much. 1895 and 1885?

Tori Scott from saved by the bell was forgotten by Slater, Lisa Turtle and Zack when Kelly and Jessie returned. Where did she go? Did she ever exist? If so was it in a parallel dimension.

The promos for the final season of the show featured Kelly, Jessie, and Tori together, despite the fact that the actresses never actually appear in an episode together. Rather, the network alternated between "Kelly and Jessie" and "Tori" episodes each week.

The only thing I can be certain of is of the things from the 1990s Tori was forgotten but did she really exist???

steve_s: They forgot grunge rock, or as Beavis and Butthead called it, "grudge rock".


No they didn't. It's a double negative. They forgot to forget therefore some of the best albums ever made came out of Seattle from 91-95. If you think "grunge" sucks then you didn't get it or were born too late.

Think of all that great rock from the early 2000s I mean Creed sold more albums than Jimi Hendrix so they were cool right???

Led Zeppelin, REM, and Depeche Mode have never had a number one single. Celine Dion's "Falling Into You" sold more copies than any AIC, Nirvana, or Pearl Jam record so she must be great and she's Canadian.



They probably should have included "Buffcoat and Beaver".

It was like a 5 minute monologue of pressing one button over and over to go through the speech bubbles, and when it was over the default option was to go over the whole damn thing again. So when you're pressing 'A' non stop for forever it was common to accidentally restart it.

Bratz dolls are still around, and just recently released a line of hairless dolls (boys and girls), for kids who are fighting diseases that have cost them their hair. Good on Bratz, I say.
