...and will soon fade into memory.

To keep our memory from forgetting the flower of our youth, let us reminisce about all the good things that existed during our childhoods in the 1990s.

-----
The X-Files, because Fox Mulder is addicted to porn and masturbation while David Duchovny was addicted to ***.
The Simpsons used to be good, and was the best show on the television for a very long time.
Futurama and Family Guy first began their tentative, controversial, and ill-fated runs on the Fox Network.
Kurt Cobain & Nirvana changed the landscape of music and then he died because he played the guitar too much.
Radiohead released OK Computer and every subsequent British rock band sought to emulate them.
You could fill up your car's gas tank with $20.
Movie tickets cost $5.
We got to the watch the entire Star Wars trilogy, remastered, in theaters, thus infusing new blood into the fandom.
During winter, if you had a computer, there was no need to turn the heating on.
You watched Walker, Texas Ranger every Saturday with your parents because Chuck Norris was a meme before memes existed.

95-98 was the golden era of TV where Doug, Hey Arnold!, GI Joe, Transformers the Thundercats and many others were all on the same network.

Beavis and Butt-Head came out in the nineties, too, and parents never did fully recover from how controversial it was for it's day.

MTV still played music videos in the nineties.

Grunge started up in the wake of 80's heavy metal and died extremely quickly.

Good stuff from the 90s I got to be apart of:
You didn't have to answer phone calls, weren't tethered to one, and no one cared.
a case of Keystone Light tall-boys cost $2.99.
There was a brand of cigarettes called "99cent brand smokes" (guess how much they cost)
Bands of 14 year olds could go to a Denny's at 2am on a wednesday and drink coffee and smoke cigarettes for hours.
LSD was plentiful.
Kids didn't do prescription drugs to get high.

Dexters Lab.
Pokemanz
Golden age of 3D platformers. (I personally loved the everliving **** out of Banjo Kazooie and DK 64 [although that one may have come out in 2000, I forget.])
