There's something the warm glow of a county map displaying third party voting percentages provides that a woman could never hope to.

Especially as it is absurd to think that a sudden outbreak of PoMo could ever kill a thread named after one of its living (if totally unknowing) embodiments.

Let it live.

As you wish

After my circumlocutory and exuberant thread on why I am fond of the 1980s, I now realize I should shed some light onto my tepid reminiscing of the 1990s.

Now this 20 second video tells you why I wish I could've lived in the 1980s:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q8NMtQabci0&feature=related

Note my favorite President, and two of my favorite TV shows all on the same night! Of course, now you might get an Obama speech preempting a reality show showing a teenage girl get liposuction but that's for another epic thread at another time.

Before anyone can look back at the 1990s, you have to remember there were three parts to the decade.

The early 1990s were basically the start of a decade that ended with the 1980s. The Cold War was dwindling but still going on, Ronald Reagan had just left office leaving George Bush as his successor, and the "vibe" was still generally 80s.



Music was generally 80s-type rock being rehashed, but newer pop music was all the rage. "Hip-Hop" and "Rap" were around, but in general much of that still had a motown-type quality. For example, Boyz 2 Men had "It's So Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday" and "End of the Road" while Mariah Carey rehashed the Jackson 5's "I'll Be There". From what I can remember circa 1991, Amy Grant was big on the radio, along with Phil Collins, and many one-hit wonders. For example, the film "Doc Hollywood" with Michael J. Fox brought the #1 one-hit wonder "The One and Only" that you're sure to recognize if you hear it. "Everything Changes" from 1992 is another example of the sounds of the early 1990s. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4C9AD1oyE30

Warning: If Keystone Phil clicks on the link, at approximately six seconds he will realize I am correct.

Styles were VERY much like the 1980s. Aviator sunglasses, big hair, all the fashion still met very well with the 80s styles. The early 1990s began as if the 80s had transformed into what the 1990s would be like.

The hit NBC show "L.A. Law", which aired between 1986 and 1994 epitomized the styles of the early 90s period with women's business suits and hairstyles that weren't quite the 80s but were...at the time...what it seemed the 1990s would be. Pantyhose was also all the rage more than ever.


Hose ad from 1990

Politics were different during the early 90s, too. Indeed, I read an article from TIME magazine from 1991 saying that with President Bush's high popularity, the 1990s would be the Bush Era just as the 1980s were the Reagan era. Little did we know Bill Clinton would end up being the President of the 90s.

Bitches love Thomas Pynchon.

I finally got my hands on a Thomas Pynchon book the other day. I think I'm gonna like it.

Which one? I really, really love Pynchon (,even if I'm not that big on the whole ridiculous atmosphere that can surround his persona at times or the awfully pathetic fanboyism of some of his admirers.). V. is probably the best entry into his oeuvre as it both shows flashes of Pynchon at his best as well as being a great preparation for the glorious delights that is Gravity's Rainbow, and I say this as someone who personally would consider Against The Day to be the peak of Pynchon's craft.

The whole California-cycle (Vineland, Inherent Vice, maybe even The Crying of Lot 49 )of novels is less my thing, though.

Sounds to me like the teacher is a homo and wants to force his warped lifestyle on the schoolchildren.  Good for the boy for standing up against the gay mafia, even if his name is Dakota.

Oh those persecuted Christians! 

I saw a picture of a sign that was really cute.

"Religion is like a penis.  It's nice to have one.  It's alright to be proud of it.  But please don't whip it out in public and show it to everybody and please, by all means, do not try to shove it down my childrens' throats."

Blubb's act was obviously funny, you saying it was Phil was certainly not funny. I just thought you got confused again.
