10 Things I Hate About You
Such an odd-looking bunch.
I've got to start perving at woman over the internet
All men are just one Wiki link away from being 13monsters
I hereby declare this the most frighteningly accurate thing I've ever said.
with gel and undercut
I was gonna say Liam Gallagher and Damon Albarn on Live and Kicking bathing in a bath that's had the Union Jack painted on it
where you were someone on quests and you had to answer trivia questions?
was brilliant, can't remember the name for shit though.
I used to play it far too much when instead I should have been using it to research history homework.
please find it
Had it once, thought it was great
and France 98
with a little propellor on it
you could also get 32X CD games, which requires you to have both (obviously). i think the biggest one was a re-release of Night Trap with colour video.
and the word (below)
so good call.
the earth song
girls wearing baggy jeans
girls wearing baggy clothes
people wearing velvet
crushed velvet floppy hats
directions hair dye (pillarbox red)
raw power with krusher hosting
alternative bands making expensive music videos with shiny looking film
music videos filmed in black and white with 'narratives'
dancing to prodigy's outer space at the ymca, when the internet didn't exist
singing 'foxy lady' in the playground and doing garth's dance
The correct answer is My So Called Life
a) guest appearance by buffalo tom
b) guest appearance from juliana hatfield
c) girl with perm
d) girl with dyed red hair
e) guy with curtains
f) lots of checked shirts
g) is an american tv series set in a high school where no-one appears to have a stylist
is one of the worst things I've ever seen.
every time i think 'maybe i'll revisit the series, see if it's as good as it seemed then' the image of juliana hatfield as a homeless - but a homeless angel, so it's OKAY - comes to mind
and your musical cred being decided by this
as opposed to like going out to gigs and knowing more than four bands
no-one fancies skaters now do they?
this tragically introduced me to a lot of bands when i was 12
those weird shows on at six am on channel 4 with 'trippy' graphics and jean-michel jarre
rapido with normski
people dancing in studios
credible musical acts having dancers (not bez)
top of the pops having a makeover
might have been a DOUBLE CASSETTE
had a neon yellow cover with a massive safety pin design and never mind the bollocks style ransom lettering
a & b 1 had buzzcocks, sex pistols, etc with side two being a bit more adventurous with xtc, flying lizards, bow wow wow
a & b2 television, modern lovers, richard hell
there was even a channel four comedy hour and there used to be five different american comedies - one for every day at the week
Asa double act, not Guardian leftie feted individuals.
Eric Cantona's playing career
the very fact that, at some point, Commodore were important enough to book Earls Court for a trade show is probably the most 90s thing ever.
TOTP was never on the radio. The TV show (on Thursdays) did the rundown of the chart that was originally announced on Radio 1 the previous Sunday.
Wave Race on the N64
so you'd worry about it crusting on your face
tight adidas jackets (late nineties)
jelly shoes (late nineties)
arguments about oasis and blur
richard madeley and judy finnegan advising parents about the oasis and blur divide
And big fuck-off platform shoes.
my friend and I were going to get a bus out to a friends party and were going to drink on the bus on the way there like proper chavs. She was in charge of getting the alcohol etc, when she met me she produced a bottle of vodka and fucking Sunny D to pour it into. NEVER AGAIN. She had an orange moustache by the end of the trip and I had two sips and couldn't drink it.
particularly the bald guy.
ctrl+f 'This Life'
obviously you were all in bed by 8:30 throughout most of the 90s
Clarissa Explains It All
Zig and Zag
The lanch of Channel 5
Free internet on Sundays with IC24
well, sadly there were girls in my year at school who wouldn't stop talking about lion king and 5ive and my girl (My Girl is from the '80s, isn't it?)
i was too busy watching twin peaks and gus vant films, what a freak. i was 12, not 40 shockingly. still haven't seen home alone and my girl - not sure whether erm, they're worth catching?
exactly the same 90's
(minor difference - i was baby spice)
Thats brilliant :)
I'm guessing you're the same age as me? (20)
The Fast Show
Friendship bracelets (what a load of shit)
Days of Thunder
I wholeheartedly second Clarissa Explains It All (Ferg-turd) and anything from Nickelodeon of that era, Sister Sister etc. Pete and Pete was the greatest show of all time.
UMBRO Jackets for guys that were slightly too long and made of horrible material
bomber jackets- silky ones
channel four showing amazing arthouse films almost every night of the week
lip balm from body shop
bringing in your massive collection of what was essentially coloured vaseline
and dreaming of the day I too would own a laser disc player.
Long sleeve band t-shirts. Kickers shoes. Kickers tags.
and all things Manc
and they rarely know what i am talking about. Was it anything to do with the lager, as i seem to remember the signage being similar.
2. WOOF! (boy runs into shed, turns into dog, solves crime, turns back into boy)

Wearing a jacket (adidas usually) and pulling the waist draw-string in really tight then folding the bottom under. why...
Richard Bacon doing the drugzz
Doing an entire stand-up routine about power tools
Why Don't You?
The squiggly flourescent lines in the credits to Movies Games and Videos
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOLLAAAAACCCCCCCCCCCIIIIOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! (OOOOO ooooo ......)
