The Unofficial Interference 1990s Decade Pop-Culture Appreciation Thread!!!!!

On January 1st, 1990, I was 5 years old. On December 31st, 1999, I was 15. Most of who I am was formed in that decade, and a lot of what formed me outside of my family and friends is pop-culture. The pop culture of the 1990s, 1990-1994 ESPECIALLY, is very important to me. I have not watched/listened to/played/otherwise experienced all of the following, but I have experienced a lot of it. And what I haven't experienced, others have. Should anyone else come up with anything else that I haven't thought of that I think should be there, I may edit them into the post. Without further ado...

DAN MARINO!!!!!!!!

What a decade... kinda grey, kinda ironic, kinda everything, yet nothing.

The 80's were music, fashion and hair
The 90's were TV, music, and no clothes to match



the decade of ZOO TV

Let's not forget Bill Clinton! He did have a major role in the pop culture.

But I'm going to release my inner nerd and ask: Where is FFVIII?? I can't be the only who loved it!

But Mario Kart was a great addition to the list, probably the best SNES game ever.

In 1990, I had already served the public with 18 years of service..I was seeing/dating "this gal" with no expectation that it would last any longer than the next week...........

We're now together 17 years, married for almost ten and you can call her Bono's American Wife...she's Pop-culture at its finest.! she taught me the way of life and U-2.
