I got back from seeing the new American Pie, and am now in a world where the 90s are looked back with nostalgia.

This depresses me, then I realise that the same amount of time has now passed between 1969 and 1982. So for fun I thought it would be intesting to build up a map about the spirit of the 90s; list

Top Five 90s Songs
Top Five 90s Films
Top Five 90s Games

Etc and so on. Feel free to throw in random stuff which for you sums up the decade. Lets wallow in nostalgia!

The 90's.... being chased by bullies, using sherbert dip dab & fanta to pretend i had rabies down the sea front whilst throwing tampons at Yorkshire holiday makers, stealing money off my ma to go and play arcade machines, playing Amiga games (especially stunt car racer & Jimmy Whites whirlwind snooker), painting pictures of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles being hideously tortured, wanking a lot and putting my man cream in the pocket of my dressing gown until it was yellow and obvious, fingering a girl in the pub, getting stoned and crying too much

That's just a quick synopsis of 1990 - 1994,. I'm sure i did more

I'm struggling with mine, picking just 5 is hard! My musical choices are probably pretty shit too since they're heavily influenced by school discos

I don't remember watching many films as a kid. Mostly Cool Runnings or the Power Rangers film.

Songs!
Haddaway - What is Love
Take That - Relight My Fire
Cotton Eye Joe - Rednex (I won a dancing competition at the local disco to this song)
Wonderwall - Oasis

Events
One of my most enduring memories was when we found out Diana was dead. It was a Sunday morning and me and my cousins were staying over at my Grans. My Gran had got up to get ready for her job and we were all still in bed when she shouted upstairs that Diana and 'Dodi Faed' were 'deed'. Even as a 10 year old I remember thinking this was huge.

Footballers
Brian Laudraup
Ally McCoist
Mark Hately
Gazza!
Lorenzo Amorouso (can you guess what team my family supports )

I couldn't tell you how old I was. I can't remember when she snuffed it. I can remember my mum waking me up, her telling me, me grunting with displeasure at being woken for such drivel, me going back to sleep.

boaby's TV moments:

Seeing the wonder that is Sarah Michelle Gellar as Buffy for the very first time.
Seeing the wonder that is Louise singing Naked on TOTP
Seeing The Word for the first time.
Paxman vs. Howard
Friends, for the first time - hard though that is to imagine these days.

I'm a child of the 80s too. However, for me the 90s was GCSEs, A-Levels, UEA and Manchester University, and so this decade holds more significance and is seared upon my memories more than any other time.

I just have to hear the first opening bars of Bittersweet Symphony or Paranoid Android and I'm there.

Or maybe some early nineties techno like 808 State.

Top 5 useless playground crazes...

Tamagotchis - mine was a frog I couldn't get past tadpole level.
Pogs - I had a pog holder and everything. Never did figure out how to flip one of the bloody things.
Yo-Yos - It was a red X-Brain I practiced doing the cradle on for ages.
Garbage Pail Kids Cards - I remember thinking these were the height of repulsiveness until my older brother introduced me to a '70s porno.
Pixie Sticks - they came in neon tubes and my school eventually banned them because of the masses of discarded packets lying everywhere.

We had 2 playground crazes:

Football.
Two Man Hunt - Those in the School team couldn't play fitba on Fridays lest we injure ourselves for the big game the following morning. George the Janny/Coach was nae to be crossed. So we played two man hunt instead - far safer.

I remember football in year 6, I was never interested but I got roped in every day, so one day I got myself and some mates to start charging toward the opposite team yelling "AAAARGH" as a sort of Braveheart inspired activity.

Within 10 minutes everyone was doing it




I've never had so much influence...

You ever manage to get across that impossible level with the two gaps at the top of the really high one? I could never make it over the second gap.

Also Bamboozle.

The child of the 80s/90s thing - I was born in the 80s, but I was 9 when the 90s started, so I have a lot of fondness for both decades.

Ah, I see. I hated the 90s, the best thing to happen to me was my sister being born in '92 when I was 15. I had a horrible time in and out of school during that decade, they were the worst years of my life. The 00's, though, that's a different story

Nah, I'm happy. I was just explaining to DC why I feel differently to the decade than him. It's not as though I had a nice childhood, but I do remember the 80s more fondly for some reason. It's strange. I wasn't writing in a 'woe is me' sort of way (my bullying is well documented round here) it was written from a happy place reflecting back
