    In this thread you pick a year of your life and write a bunch of random things that happened in that year:

    My year was 1993, i was 10.


    1- My parents bought me a $30 cross colours cap in 1993 when i was 10. I wasnt allowed the purple jeans, i'm glad i never got them (seriously who wants purple jeans?) They came in all sorts of wacky colours like green and yellow and had YA DIG on the back of them...

    2- I thought this song INFORMER, was really cool it was by this guy called SNOW, and no one could understand what he was saying in the song, but it was number 1 for like 5 months...(surely i cant be the only person who remembers this)

    3- I also liked shoop, by salt and peppa..I really wanted the single but being 10 couldnt come up with the $3 to buy the cassette, so i borrowed a copy off my friend who taped it off the radio and i taped it off him.

    4- I thought CD's and CD players were amazing, and in 1993 a cd player was serious technology because you could just go straight to song you wanted instead of rewinding and fastforwarding all the time, and when the inside of the tape came out and made a mess it was a hassle to fix because you had to put a pencil inside the hole of the cassette and keep turning till it was all in and you may have even had to use tape to repair it.

    5-I had to sneak into see the movie bad boys with will smith, because it was MA15+ so i had to alter my school ID

    6- Remember when video arcades were a magical place?

    7- When i got a $10 bill for a birthday or whatever, it was like i was serioulsy ballin, i could go into the store and buy a bunch of candy and still have more than enough for pack of upper deck, a comic etc..

    8- A year seemed like an eternity, one year for an elementary kid at my age was like 5 adult years..

    9- Remember when Pamela Anderson was considered the hot girl? Remember shows like Doogie Howser, Perfect Strangers, Baywatch, and 90210 took up the prime time slots?


    Whats your year?

    I HAVE COME TO THE CONCLUSION THAT THREADS LIKE THESE ARE JUST A MEANS OF THE ORIGINAL POSTER TO HAVE OTHERS PAY ATTENTION TO AND IMPRESS OTHERS ON AN ASPECT ABOUT HIMSELF, HIS MATERIAL BELONGINGS, OR A PERIOD OF HIS LIFE. THE ORIGINAL POSTER THEN ATTEMPTS TO DISGUISE HIS ATTENTION-WHORING WITH A "NOW POST YOUR OWN [FILL IN THE BLANK]" AS TO NOT COME OFF AS BEING AS PRETENTIOUS AS IT ACTUALLY IS.

    EXAMPLES:
    "POST YOUR DESKTOP AND CELLPHONE"
    "POST YOUR GIRLFRIEND"
    "POST YOUR BABY PICTURES"
    "POST YOUR BLACKBERRY AND GPS NAVIGATOR INSIDE YOUR CAR"
    "POST HOW MUCH MONEY YOU GOT IN YOUR WALLET RIGHT NOW"
    "HEY LOOK AT ME LOOK WHAT I GOT LOOK WHAT I CAN DO"

    do you ever eat a pint of ice cream, and you think you are halfway through, and you will save it for the next day, and you realize you can see the bottom of the container, so you say fuck it and eat the rest of the pint?

    anyone relate?

    I do remember perfect strangers.. and family matters, step by step, back when family shows were the shit.

    1995, I was 13.

    -used to rent chuck norris and american ninja type of videos with my friend. Also some police academy.
    Man I had no idea of good movies. Saw taxi driver the first time but couldn't make shit out of it.

    -my friend found his dads porn stash. There was a one movie with a bunch of guys tenting in a forest,
    telling each other stories that made the fuck-scenes in the movie. one was a phone repairsman, someone had fucked a secretary or something.
    would be hilarious to see that shit again

    -offspring and green day were the shit. Then I read an offspring interview on Thrasher magazine
    where the singer said that he's afraid at their shows when kids go nuts and jump off the stage etc.
    I thought he was a big pussy so I didn't like that band anymore. still got that smash album somewhere.
    yuck

    -got my first "girlfriend" but I was too shy and also didn't find her very attractive.
    I managed to break her heart, she cried and got really depressed. It was a fucking shock to me.
    After that I've been way too careful not to be an asshole again. it's been quiet for me...haha

    -kids had started smoking cigarettes, drink alcohol and write graffiti.
    Everyone had a tag with "F" as the initial letter. I'd write sloppy "Frog" tags at this abandoned house we found.
    People wrote "i.d." next to their tags if they were drunk, it was fucking stupid.
    it took me still about 5 years to figure out how to paint a simple fill-in & outline.
    none of my friends got past the toy stage, everyone quit before 97.

    -got drunk the first time and had the first and latest two cigarettes of my life that day.
    the same night at least two kids got too intoxicated and started to throw up blood, it was fucked up.

    -saw this catfight, a 13y/o girl smashed another in the face with a bottle.
    people were cheering, blood was all over the place. We threw small rocks at them

    -the houseparties were always insane. windows smashed, all the shit stolen and
    the food from the fridge used as wallpaper. phone wires ripped off the walls and garden fences fallen apart.
    fun times fun times.

    after 95 everything went to shits in my town, I'm so glad I'm out.
    Kids stopped writing graffiti, everyone started to listen to rap and I got tired of myself and my friends.

    Shit changed alot after that.

    1996

    I dropped a lot of acid and smoked a lot of weed.

    Made lots of money the fun way.

    Dropped out of high school.

    Did insane amount of scratch tags. David Gunn was on TV talking about my tag, and besides that, me and my buddy were always coming off on the local news as part of that "scratchitti" epidemic..

    Tons of court dates.

    Really started getting into that alternative music, I guess.

    Was kicked out of my house a whole lot.

    yeah
    bad boys coming out in 93 just doesn't seem correct.
    but it also just came to me at this very moment that he could be talking about the one with sean penn...but then again i thought that came out in the 80's.
    anyone?
