Except I've forgotten that for every "She's So High" or Pearl Jam's version of "Last Kiss" there seems to be five "MmmBop" or "Macarenas". The 90's were highlighted by boy bands and one hit wonders, after all.

It could be worse.  Be thankful you didn't spend the first several years of your life in the 70s, when disco music was king.  :-[ *painful wince, shudder*

You win. But you had.... Okay, I was going to say Roy Orbison but his very best stuff happened the decade before and the decade after. *thinks* Um, the Eagles? I'll admit to having a fondness for Don Henley's solo stuff (my favorite was a screwed up "I don't need you anymore" song called Miss Ghost that no one seems to have on youtube) but I will rock karaoke to Hotel California.

Plus, a lot of the stuff I grew up listen to and remember fondly is either sappy with a good memory attached or so bad it's good.

I will still jump to my feet and bounce around the room if this comes on the radio.

Edit: Forgot to mention, you had Tim Curry's first two albums (the song "Paradise Garage" would be great for you to listen to, it makes fun of disco so wonderfully) and the original soundtrack to The Rocky Horror Picture Show.

Matthew 22:39 "And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself." God's own "don't be a dick" rule.

Lithp and Vene really need to have some kind of confusing sexual encounter where Vene spends the entire session lovingly insulting Lithp's technique, then cums on his face, ruffles his hair, says, "You're all right, kid!", and then punches him in the nuts.

I found Barbie Girl as #1 on a list of worst songs from the 90's list. Sounds about right.
Guys, this is getting creepy. Can we talk about cannibalism instead?

As for "Barbie Girl," I always saw it as poking fun at Valley Girls.  "I'm a blonde bimbo girl in a fantasy world," after all.

It can be viewed another way?

Make me walk, make me talk;
Do whatever you please
I can act like a star;
I can beg on my knees


I remember two things about that song when it first came out. 1) Mattel was pissed, which meant it got even more airtime. 2) My local Morning Zoo radio show did a parody and pointed out barbie didn't have flexible knees when the song came out. I have no idea if any of them do now as my kids have asked for a sole barbie doll and that's because they liked her shoes.

The depression that I deal with on a daily basis.

It is so goddamn annoying. :/

... Annnnd yeah. I'll just leave it at that.
You have made a place in my heart where I thought there was no room for anything else. You have made flowers grow where I cultivated dust and stones. Remember this, on this journey you insist on making. If you die, I will not survive you long. Dovie'andi se tovya sagain!



People so seldom say "I love you". And then it's either too late or love goes. So when I tell you I love you, It doesn't mean I know you'll never go, only that I wish you didn't have to.

It annoys me when I can't do anything to help the people around me who have depression, because I have depression too, and I know it's different for everyone.  Actually more like frustrating than annoying.

Six day work weeks.

I like having free time, dammit.

most workplaces (corporate level anyway) would rather slit their throats than give overtime.
Another annoying thing.

Unless you can stand to do bill collection. Two weeks straight during our busy period my section had the offer of 64 hour work weeks. 128 hours of my life later...

The fact that after I've gotten married and only got asked out 3 times prior to dating my wife, all these girls that have been "secretly crushing on me" or just new girls in general seem to be crawling out of the woodwork. Stupid "forbidden fruit" idea...
