Archives For why the 90’s ruled

The Apocalypse came and went, and we made it through to live one more Christmas. I love Christmas music (so sue me!) — and Americans have the best cheesiest Christmas music that makes you all cheery and bright. The classics are unbeatable by newer songs (except for NSYNC’s Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays [MV]). Some of my favorites are Santa Claus Is Coming to Town (the Rosemary Clooney version she did for the Rosie O’Donnell Xmas special), Here Comes Santa Claus (the Disney parade version), Do You Hear What I Hear, Sleigh Ride (either the Disney version or the Billy Gilman + Charlotte Church duet), Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree, Last Christmas (ok, not so ‘classic’ xD) — DISNEY WAS MY LIFE!

… and of course, Jingle Bell Rock~

So here is SunnyHill performing the song and wishing us Merry Christmas :)

Merry Christmas, everyone!

If you visit the site regularly (or just happened to pop by), make this a Christmas miracle and fill the comment section.

While watching the latest version of Sparkle — besides checking out Carmen Ejogo (*legasp* English??) and fist-pumping for Tika Sumpter — the most emotional scene in the whole movie, which had me side-drying the “single” tear that kept on rolling down my left cheek, was when Whitney performed that song. And I didn’t even cry when her death was announced (more liked shocked). It’s just one of those powerful spiritual moments.

I have been listening to …Baby One More Time and Oops!… I Did it Again — nearly non-stop — for the past two days. And I just really really REALLY miss you so much. I think it’s due to my cousin mentioning you, and then wanting to see you on The X Factor. But it’s not the same :(

… get this hot?

I’ve always liked Clea Duvall. Duh, Buffy~~~ Popular~~~ Girl Interrupted, The Faculty, Can’t Hardly Wait, She’s All That. I’ve grown up watching Clea on screen. She’s a big part of my teen teen teenage years, so I was so happy to see her in Affleck’s latest film, Argo. And I said to myself, “wow~ look at that. She is so great in here.” When I ended up on IMDb that now has her profile pic from one of the Argo premiere pics, I said “OMG, she looks stunning!” I’ve never had this reaction to a photo of her before.

Her face in this snapshot is quite flawless, and it’s impossible to get near-flawless on carpets with all the flashes going on.

When did this become NOT the norm for American pop music videos?

I know music video’s budgets have skyrocketed [1] — as of 2012 MJ and Janet’s Scream [MV] directed by Mark Romanek was still the most expensive music video ever made at $7M USD~~~ adjusted to nearly $11M USD nowadays. In fact, 8 of the Top10 Most Expensive Music Videos are of the 90s, lead by Madonna and Michael Jackson. Though, I still find it unbelievable that Mariah Carey’s Heartbreaker [MV] cost $2.5M USD. That’s just gotta be money not well spent.

Instead, Dominic Sena made this… fairly simple quite rocking and powerful music video.

Also, overreaching here since this MV is from 1989, but did the award circles in 1990 ;P
