@AliCat: That movie changed my life. From now on, my friend and I argue
no longer about who's cuter at school, but if Legolas is really
a woman and if Arwin is really a man. happy.gif I don't know why, but
it came up.

What about Star Wars Episode 1? My Dad dragged me along to see AT 4 O' CLOCK IN THE MORNING since he worked for Lego at the time and everyone that worked in his department got to see it earlier than the public. He yanked me along because he didn't want to looks strange among the guys half his age.

chibi-Zero: huh.gif Shouldn't I be in school?
Dad: Star Wars can teach you plently about life! Such as why the dark side of the
force is SO much better than the light side!

My Dad did the same thing to me when we went to go see ALL OF THE BATMAN MOVIES!!! dry.gif

They should have had Pokemon on the VH1 "I love the 90's" but they are doing another "I love the 90's" so mabey they will have this stuff on it.

The problem with "I love the 80s/70s/90s" is that they only do certain things, and most of them aren't important! They didn't even do ADULT SWIM!!! Adult Swim on Cartoon Network revolutionaized America thinking that cartoons are just made for children by showing cartoons made for teens and adults. dry.gif

as for your cracked out theory about adult swim... news flash adult swim didn't exist until at least 1999. the majority of americans still think cartoons are for kids. the reason why animation has grown is cause from gen x on people never fully grew up.

oh and for the record.... complaining about the documentary quality of VH1 is like complaining about how your neon can't blow a m5 off the line... you can turn lemons into lemonade, but you can't get caviar from shit

she does make a very good point. aren't the majority of you only like 15ish? so that would have made you 5 in 1990.

ok here's a widely known fact... kids don't know crap. you were too young to truly understand the 90s. i grew in the 80s but i can't say i really know anything about it; i wasn't old enough to understand yuppism, i never went to the coke parties, i have no idea why people thought big hair was cool, etc.

you see, to truly understand a decade you have to have lived though it and have had it affect you in some way other than the crap that tv tells you or tries to sell to you. the gulf war, east coast vs west coast, NWA, the death of kurt, starbucks professors, the death of easy e.... these events are what i remember about the 90s not crap about cartoons or any of that. honestly in the end who cares about pokemon and all of that?!

history is defined by IMPORTANT events not cheesy fads... like i doubt any of you kiddies know who debbie gibson is or what a snap bracelet is... but they were HUGE for a while in the 80s.

Hey, I remember Debbie Gibson and snap bracelets!

VH1 is all about nostalgic pop culture fads and not real events just as Hitokiri has said, who is now officially in his Son of a Bitch Mode I believe.

The Gulf War was a big part of the early 90's. I believe it was the first war that really called on the reserve troops as well as regular troops. It was a strange thing at the time as people were just going away to war who you'd know and see around. Suddenly they're gone to war - weren't they supposed to only do one weekend a month and two weeks a year? Now it's become a normal operation, but still difficult on people and businesses.

There are a ton of other parts of the 90's out there that are completely missed by VH1 I'm sure.

Yeah, I don't remember them touching on Desert Storm any. My stepfather served in Kuwait and is now leaving for Iraq Today! He was in the Marines Corps, but he is in the National Guard now. And your right Arche, what happened to the whole one weekend a month deal? I guess it doesn't involve having to serve time over seas.

@ Arche : I think he's awakened his dark side on the young teeny boppers here!

ok so how about this... why don't we people who are old enough, list important events from the 90s that we remember?

proliferation of the cell phone: anyone who has never actually seen a brand new brick phone or gotten "the top of the line" pager wouldn't understand

the internet boom: i miss my days of college day trading.... sad.gif

the colossal failures of daddy Bush (aka the depression of the 90s)

rodney king, the white guy would got hit with the brick and the LA riots

OJ stabbin' people and his infamous 35 mph car chase to his momma's house (one of my personal favs by the way)

i could go on for a while but i'll leave more so others can list things as well

ps i'm not so much unleashing my dark side. it more that i have come to the conclusion that i can no longer just sit back and occasionally help/chide these noobs into enlightment. the time for diplomacy has ended.... its now time to start donkey punching the ignorance straight out of the back of their heads...w laugh.gif
