    Default 1990's Living history

    The 1990ís saw the Berlin wall fall, the fall of the Iron Curtain and the idolising of Super Models. The Internet took off as did the mobile phone, the whole world got communication crazy, and then feared the Y2K virus. Europe saw the birth of the Euro. Aparthide stopped in South Africa, Nelson Mandel was freed. Dolly the Sheep was born. The rise and fall of Girl power as we all went Spice crazy. Cline Dionís heart went on, as the Titanic sank. Alanis Morisette got down and dirty in a theatre because he ought to know. Madonna saw Rays of Light and Brit pop put the UK back on the map. And of course, there was the last ever 20th Centrury babies were born... Ah

    The purpose of this thread is to share music from that decade, lyrics, news items, personal recollections, fashions and trends, anything you think is typical of the era. Think wide and allow yourself a bit of creative freedom.

    Computer Tech accelerated and hit mass production. 1995 networked PC's were not the norm in every office, by 1997 they were, the net still didn't have masses of content.

    This declared war on the fax machine, long live the machine... not one I'd miss

    Harry Potter series was started and was first published

    DVD's replaced Video technology

    [excerpted from an old post..]

    1990 - 2000: Seinfeld certainly speaks for a decade about "nothing." The Boomers get the keys to the WH, the nation debates important issues like "school uniforms" and V-chips for television. OJ's acquitted - the biggest piece of the decade long sensational crime obsession that also included the Menendez brothers, Lorena Bobbitt, Tonya Harding and Joey Buttafuco. Cal beats Gehrig's consecutive game streak (a better baseball story-line than the McGwire - Sosa race), the country takes sides on Starbucks: love it or hate it, and we end with a tie election in Florida.
