    Haha. For some reason "grunge" was in fashion, so for just a few years, I was very stylish. One day, I visited Greenwich Village and saw the fashion queens strutting down the sidewalk in stiff new (shined!) cork boots, new (pressed!) jeans and flannels. icon_rolleyes.gificon_lol.gificon_rolleyes.gificon_lol.gificon_rolleyes.gificon_lol.gif That was probably the last time that there was actually good music on the radio. But I lived in a bizarre little town where they banned subversive stuff, like that new commie show "the simpsons." Where I worked there were actually "kill zones" where if you stepped off the marked path, you would be shot dead. (I had to walk through one to get to the library icon_eek.gif ) I escaped to seattle on the weekends and spent a lot of time on the water. We finally got to start meeting the russians at conferences, which was all pretty cool at first. But then if you introduced yourself to someone who worked in the same field, they would fly into a rage and start raving about how the CIA stole all of their work and I've spent my whole career just copying their secret russian notebooks icon_eek.gif ... yeah. They've gotten a little more mellow since then. I got a little bit famous for 15 minutes or so and was in TV and magazines somewhat frequently (they recycled a lot of the same clips over and over, without necessarily telling me about it.)

    Hollywood Music of the 90's was deeper, full of sense, love and passion and very emotional... Allanis Morissette, Boyz2Men, Mariah Carey and many more until Britney Spears came out in the late 90s that she's already a product of you, unluckily.

    Yay, the end of socialism in Eastern Europe but all sorts of chaos following it!

    Dance music! So many German, Dutch, and Belgian dance groups came and go in a flash.

    True. And you forgot Jane's Addiction and Nirvana.

    The janet album was/is amazing. Plus, TLC came out. 92' and 93' were good years for music.

    I agree.. 90s were a good time for music. I still love 80s music, but the 90s music scene flourished. Many of the traditional genres of music branched out to new sub-genres . And some even crossed over each other.

    The one thing I take away from music during the '90s was how many different styles and genres became hits. It truly was an eclectic decade in music. While certain trends and phases came and went, the variety was fabulous. That's the main reason why '90s music remains my favorite aside from the fact that it was the main decade I grew up in.

    Well, I hope this doesn't prompt Intensity69 to shave his legs.


    Ginger Spice for MOTD? There's a Real Jock(ette) who keeps it real on her legs!

    It was a great time... student when it started, very focused on law, then investments, then my career and by the end of the decade, something new... coming out!

    I generally view the entire decade as a very positive time.. we even had a balanced budget..haha

    I graduated high school in 98.

    In my freshman year, Kurt Cobain had just died and all the white kids went grunge. Being preppy was despised. Nearly everyone smoked cigarettes. High schools had designated smoking areas for teenagers. Being gay was not accepted by any parents or teachers, but young people in fringe culture thought it was cool. I came out as bi and dropped out of hs.

    At that time the internet was irrelevant. Everyone hung out at coffee shops, or just wandered the city. Most of my friends were dropouts and many were homeless. I partied with squatters and we were all under 18. My first out of the closet bf was 17, which seemed so old at the time. I started going to an ALC high school and getting my shit together. We actually went to NA together. Long story.

    The next year in 11th grade, I was back in school and single, but I got really into the rave scene and acid. Everyone wore phat pants and bright colors. We hated the spice girls, because they were pop, and pop was an abomination, but in retrospect they were wearing the right colors.

    By the start of my senior year, I was on meth, as were all my friends. I knew I had to quit, from the moment I first tried that evil drug. And so I spent that year living with my 27 year old bf and focusing on having a job and graduating. In an era when people thought nothing was shocking, the most shocking thing one in my position could do was graduate.

    In the 90s everyone talked about their disillusionment. But that didn't come until the 90s were over...

    Brittany Spears, George Bush, and of course 9/11 changed everything...
