The Nineties




So here it is my list of my favorite things from the 1990's.  Enjoy!


The movie Mermaids was released, this may be one of my most loved movies of the nineties. Starring Cher and Winona Ryder it has a great cast and it actually deals with issues which a lot of movies today don't.    


My favorite thing from 1991 was the release of Nirvana's Nevermind.  This album continues to be one of my staples for listening to and without it so much of the music I know and love today just wouldn't exist. 



So, being Canadian and all my 1992 is naturally devoted to the Toronto Blue Jays winning the World Series.  This was a huge deal being that there were so many firsts involved in it, first world series game played outside the United States, first non American team to win the world series. 


Then they did it again.  GO JAYS GO!  Seriously, living in Toronto in the early '90's you would have thought people around here liked baseball or something.  (not saying that we don't, just saying it seems to be more of a  hockey town most of the time)



1994 marked the release of Green Day's Dookie, which is really the only one of their albums I have ever been able to listen to all the way through more than once.  I don't have anything against their music.  It's just more like one song here, one song there.  I did however love this album.  (still do)

No Doubt's Tragic Kingdom was released in 1995 which was one of my favorite albums in high school.  (not that I would have admitted it then)  1995 was also the year I started high school...not one of my favorite years.  Blah, grade nine.  





In 1996 Scream was released, it brought back a genre that for a while was severely lacking.  (and that would go that way again due to a few too many sequels)  It was however a good movie.  




Buffy the Vampire Slayer began my obsession with (worship of) Joss Whedon in 1997.  I can't say that the first season of Buffy is my favorite but it is still one of my all time favorite shows. 


The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina of Time was released in 1998.  Of the Legend of Zelda games I think it is my second favorite, as Twilight Princess is my first.  ( my son 'helped' me play it, makes me love it more)


Okay, so I know this is going to sound crazy but my favorite thing from 1999?  The fear of Y2K.  Just because I have a twisted sense of humor and it amuses me a great deal to see people panic about things they can't do anything about even if they do happen.  (horrible person I know but what's the point of panic if it's not going to change anything?)

  1. Mermaids is so underrated! I haven't seen it since the mid-90s. (Yes! I just found it's available on instant play for Netflix). I didn't watch Buffy when it came out--I dismissed it as another movie-turned-tv series that seemed like a dumb idea, but thankfully I wised up and watched the whole series. Angel too. I wish I would have watched it when it was first on!

  2. Ah the Y2K fear...ever see the Family Guy episode about it? if it wasn't for that I would have completely forgotten about it. Green Day and No Doubt were HUGE when I was in HS...is there a better break-up song than "Don't Speak"?

    And even though I love my Red Sox it would be nice to see the Blue Jays competitive like they were in the early 90's. I'll never forget Joe Carter's HR as long as I live.

  3. Buffy's first season isn't my favourite either, but it's a great start to a fantastic show.

    Thanks for taking part in the blogfest, I'm writing a debrief of sorts at the moment.
