Back and refreshed!

So, I was thinking about what i was going to talk about in this post while i was swimming.
When suddenly it hit me like a roundhousekick to the face, I should talk about how I remember the 90s since that is what this blog is all about the freaking 90s!

So, i can still remember those awesome mornings when you know there was something good on tv like Rocko's modern life, Rugrats, Kenan & Kel, Cousin Skeeter or Pokemon.
The first thing i would do in the morning was to fill a bowl with frosties, add some ice cold milk and sit down in front of the TV and just laugh.

The kids of today doesn't get any of that. All of the old shows has either been cancelled or remade. And the kids shows of today is just not of the same quality. It's all freaking CGI or some "you should not do that" moral crap.
We got to watch cartoons that didn't have any hidden moral agenda or taught us to get dressed in the morning, we watched the cartoons for fun. Not freaking education! Doesn't kids get enough of that in school?

Ah f__k, I love ranting.

But to continue. I remember the 90's as the happier decade of my life. I didn't have a care in the world since school was a breeze. Except when i was forced to sing, i had the worst voice evar!

We also had something that kids today lack, awesome candy. Don't you agree? There was no scare about dangerous chemicals or that sh_t. Our parents bought anything that could shut us up. I didn't turn out all fucked up, did you?

Now to something that i still miss from the 90's. The awesome games! Yeah shure, MW2 is fun and Crysis had amazing graphics. But from none of these new games can i get the same sensation as when i played pokémon for the first time, or when i played golden eye on the N64.
As for pokémon, i still play it today. I have an awesome team. And i even got some of my friends to play it with me. Shure it's a bit geeky, but who the f_ck cares? It's hilarious to see my friends rage over that i beat them in pokémon stadium.

So i think that sums up the part of my 90's i wanted to share with you today. Thanks!

  3. I loved Rockos modern life, and OO7. You should also put some other cartoon stuff like Gargoyles or those weird T.V. Shows.

  7. Games today seem so obsessed about graphics and not obsessed enough with game play. I share your disdain with modern cartoons, I like Spongebob though, so at least it's not all totally bad.

  13. OMG - Rocko's ***ing Modern Life was a hoot and one of my favourite Nick shows as a kid. I was born in 1989 and grew up in at the pinnacle of good kids shows.

  14. You know what i really used to love?
    Those What - A - C-c-c-c-artoon- toon - toon.
    It was a launchpad for many directors, even for SETH MCFARLANE who made Family guy 4 years after making one toon in that series.
