I've noticed this (OP) myself for a while now, and pondered why it is the 90s seemed to have something fresh and original going that neither the 80s nor the 00s had, and whether it's simpy the fact that I was a teen in the 90s. Haven't figured it out yet. Maybe the next step is to go watch 90s movies which best epitomize that 90s quality and look for common elements. Heroin? Hmm... actually... Might be something in that.
"Love is not a product of reasonings and statistics. It just comes--none knows whence--and cannot explain itself." -Mark Twain, Eve's Diary
"Laughter which cannot be suppressed is catching. Sooner or later it washes away our defences, and undermines our dignity, and we join in it -- ashamed of our weakness, and embittered against the cause of its exposure, but no matter, we have to join in, there is no help for it." Mark Twain
