The 90's Not Including Gangsta' Rap



If the first thing that does not come to mind from the 1990’s is The Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers, I don’t know what kind of amnesic rock you live under. Most of the 90’s was a Green Ranger addiction for me. Respect the Dagger and the Dragon Zord!

For many of us the 90’s were a time of childhood and Bill Clinton. I wish there more adjectives to describe this iconic time in life; however, the names say it all.

The 90’s in Short

Aresnio Hall
“Full House” with a non-perverted Bob Saget
Prime Cut John Stamos
Dave Coulier before the "Surreal Life"
You didn't say WTF? When you thought of the Olsen Twins
Reinventing the Brady Bunch with “Step by Step”
(Don’t forget Cody from Step by Step was the star of Kickboxer 4)
High quality children’s programs i.e. “Animaniacs and Pinky and the Brain”

The Pride of John Elway
The opposite of pride with O.J. Simpson
The show called “The Simpsons”
Grunge Music
SubList = Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Certain Songs by Soundgarden, Mudhoney, Seven Mary 3, Candlebox, and don’t forget the “Screaming Trees!”



No Joke: “The Screaming Trees” were awesome, but they only had two songs worth loving. However, those two songs are immortal for me. The other one of course is “Nearly Lost You.”

Another note on this decade is, I have repeatedly stated to people that I am hitting on that the epitome of 90’s Melodic Music is not “Smells Like Teen Spirit” Cobain and Grohl. It is in fact “Two Princes” from the Spindoctors. This song is all 90’s.


Fashion was very layered for this decade…lots and lots of layers and plad. EXAMPLE: Claire Danes on “My So-Called Life” and that one bitch she was friends with, not Enrique.

Harry Potter had turned reading upside down and made it appealing to all ages. No sh*t, even Kelly Clarkson read this book.

I think Tarantino made a film or two this decade, and many hours were spent watching Nickelodeon. Those were the days before “iCarly” and “Squarepants.”

QATFYG: Did you really think the world was going to end after 1999?
Did you watch “7th Heaven?”
Or were you into “Dawson’s Creek?”

Most importantly, do you remember TJ Roberts in “Masked Rider?” I was rather hooked.

I just don't know anything about Gangsta' Rap other than MC Hammer was a shady contrib during his low years. I think Vanilla Ice might have toked an album out to that phase as well.

Any other writers want to take stabs at the 90's? PLEASE DO!

  1. I have never heard of or seen this Masked Rider.

  2. Sigh......Masked Rider was an awesome show but Power Rangers was just too much and was taken behind the bar. The 90s was an awesome time to be growing up and it's too bad that most kids now have no clue what most of us are talking about when we say nicktoons like doug or rugrats were the best and they look at us like saying "WTF you talking about???"

"Chang-E" - Emmy the Great (new album out 10/9)

Emmy the Great drops her new album tomorrow on Bella Union - the fastest album she says she's ever created.  "April /月音" was completed after a trip to to her birth city Hong Kong in 2017. In early 2018, Emmy the Great made "April /月音" in a two-week period in Brooklyn - which was delayed for release until now because of her maternity leave. After recording this album, Emmy moved (for good) back to Hong Kong.  Since her original trip to Hong Kong, things have become quite tumultuous there. Said Emmy. "I’ll never know why the city called me back, but I know what it gave me. In return, I want to give it this album. That Mid-Autumn, nobody could have predicted what was to come, neither the atomization that began with the anti-Extradition Law protests in June 2019, nor the struggle for democracy that continues now, through the Covid-19 pandemic. To witness your birth city in its greatest moment of need is a powerful, humbling event, and I know I watched Hong Kong

Give JR a Break

Recently, I've been reading some sites that have criticized James Roday, the lead actor on the USA show PSYCH for an apparent weight gain. But you know what? Who gives a flying fizzle stick if James Roday is slightly larger than he was 4 years ago. Apparently, it wasn't enough to scare away his current girlfriend/ co-star Maggie Lawson. (Who is one hell of a Catch!) And NO they are not engaged. That seems to be nothing more than a rumor, but there is a very high chance of it happening in the near future. Anyway, as long as PSYCH continues to entertain I don't mind about James Roday's waist. He, and Dule Hill, and Corbin Bernson too, can eat all the fried broccoli they want. The last episode of PSYCH wasn't so smashing, but I don't blame it on dietary issues. QATFYG: Are you keeping up with Psych? And who is hotter, James Roday or Maggie Lawson? (Trick Question but idk why) PS: If you have heard any more news on Roday and Lawson becoming Roday-Lawso

movies you should see: hiroshima mon amour

Hiroshima, Mon Amour this movie has been on my mind a lot lately, due to the recent events in Japan. when I saw it about a year ago, it easily made an impression on me. easily. it was just so beautiful, in every way thinkable. it follows the story of a French actress and her Japanese architect lover, having a conversation together as they lie in bed. the majority of the film is told in flashbacks of their lives in WWII (the film was made in 1959, so there's a ten year gap there). he was directly affected by the dropping of the atom bomb in Hiroshima; she was ostracized due to her involvement with a German soldier. the reason I was propelled to see it was the song "Burning Hearts" by My Favorite- "I was an architect, she was an actress, I drew the Eiffel Tower upon her dress." (really good song too, by the way! RIP My Favorite). luckily, you can find the movie online. here's a portion of it: I HOPE YOU LIKE READING FILMS it's given credit (so I am
