I find my macbook pro to feel more futuristic than any other computer I've owned, but it's basically just a preference for those sleek, self driving audis in I, Robot over the flashy, flying delorian from Back to the Future.
Has anyone here played Shadow of the Beast when they were younger? I first came across the game a couple years back and the whole thing just screams atmosphere, like a metroid game that traded in it's sci-fi elements for fantasy ones. Definetly the sort of thing tht leaves an impression on you.
Okay, I was just looking through all my old vhs tapes this morning. Amoungst lots of Turtles and Power Rangers episodes I found something called "The Admiral and the Princess." Now for the longest time I've had this memory of this animated show where a princess gets turned into some sort of bird by an evil wizard with a crystal. At the end the cyrstal gets thrown into the air and the wizard makes a dive for it. He's to late and the crystal shatters on the floor and he decays into a skelton mid-dive. Then I think the hero of the story asks to be turned into a buird to be with his love. For years I had no idea what this was from but I think I may have just found it. Does anyone else remember this movie? Cause there's nothing about it online.
The TGIF Friday night comedy shows on ABC- Family Matters, the one with Brendan Frasier that I can't remember the title of, Hanging with Mr. Cooper, Boy Meets World.
The earliest seasons of Law and Order and ER, Seinfeld, Homicide Life on the Street, and trashy daytime stuff like Sally Jessi Raphael and Ricki Lake.
Saving a file as dlsfkjgldfgjdf because I'm too lazy to think of a title.
It's bad... for some reason, I've been going through Stone Roses songs again... dunno why that might be...
You know, I had pretty decent music choice back then: dusting off the CDs wasn't as embarrassing as I'd feared.
The Stone Roses — now there was a band who understood and used the idea of a dynamic range. Or enjoyed making people turn up their stereos then hitting them over the heads with the loud parts, anyway.
It's a crying shame that they got a major case of Fucked By The Label which resulted in releasing no more albums for years and years and years and wasting the prime years of their talent. They should have put out 3-4 records in that time, and we never got them.
@Cute: You do know Corgan's still pumping out Pumpkins albums, yes?
As to 90s nostalgia...
Alice in Chains with Layne Staley; Soundgarden at their height; Nine Inch Nails at their (well, really, his) most potent; Reboot; Beast Wars; plaid didn't get you called a hipster; Bruce Dickinson's solo career with Adrian Smith on guitar; the beginnings of the rebirth of prog-rock, largely via Porcupine Tree; Saturday Morning Cartoons (what the hell is this Sunday morning crap kids get now?)...
I could go a while...

That makes me think of the original Sims game. Okay, yeah, that was 2000, but it still counts. I mean someone born in say 2002 wouldn't remember it. It had the best soundtrack of all the games, and it was ridiculously easy to kill Sims.
Very first Doom game I ever played was DOOM II. It was one of the games that Uncle Nick had, and I used to play the hell out of it whenever I was at my aunt's place. I still have the WAD for that game, as well as Ultimate Doom. I also remember playing — and beating — Duke Nukem II, the first major Duke Nukem game that had the guy fighting aliens.
