Tuesday 10 - I'm A Child Of The 90's

Today's Tuesday 10 is favourite things from the 90's.


1. Fresh Prince of Bel Air - I think this is on EVERYONE's list.  Who didn't love Will?

2. The VJ's at Much Music - they knew their stuff and actually played videos


3. Z95.3 - This was the radio station of choice for anyone on the West Coast in BC. 



4. Pogs - I remember them being banned from school because of the fighting going on with trading.



5. "Are you afraid of the dark" - Every Saturday night and it was the scariest show.  Ever.

6. The Macaraena - we all regret it now, but then it was the greatest thing ever.  Now you'd never be able to get kids to dance the same 4 moves over and over and over again for what seems like an eternity. 



7. Super NES - I remember getting one for Christmas and we played it non-stop.  Kids today will never understand why their parents will take something out, blow on it, and try again.

8. Taping favourite songs off the radio with a cassette tape - it was even better if you could do it without the DJ's voice and just have a flow of songs.

9. Power Rangers - all the boys wanted to be Tommy and all the girls wanted to be Kimberly. 


10. Nickelodeon!  - As a kid everything you needed to watch was on Nickelodeon.  It, like so much everything else, was so much better then.  Some of my favourites included: All That, Clarissa Explains it All, Doug, Hey Arnold, Legends of the Hidden Temple, Ren & Stimpy, Rugrats, Salute Your Shorts, Wild & Crazy Kids. 


What are some of your favourite 90's things?

    1. I was talking about them at work yesterday. Apparently some schools had Pog Day where someone came in and sold Pogs - how cool would that have been?
