Archives For why the 90’s ruled

Been a long time since the last ‘why the 90s ruled’ [click to get the other posts] – almost a whole year, in fact. The other day, actually whenever I ended up talking about TV and growing up, I ended up talking about the different in thematics on shows for teenagers. We always end up asking if TV’s changed because teens have changed, or if teens have changed because TV has. Which is really the cause, and which the consequence?

Meet Joe Black

January 3, 2009 — Leave a comment

I got a little help for the “Best Kisses” list which I haven’t worked on in… a year? They reminded me of Meet Joe Black. I remember the day I saw Meet Joe Black – I was in high school, and had gotten terribly sick, so I rented a couple of films. I always thought I had fallen asleep in the middle of the film due to my illness, years later I found out that I always dozed off in the same part~~ LOL However, it IS an interesting film…

Anyway, Meet Joe Black is the HOTTEST I’ve seen Brad Pitt, plus the peanut butter scene… peanut butter will never be the same after this film. But the peanut butter has nothing to do with this Best Kiss.

Brad Pitt and Claire Forlani kiss… what? Twice? But that scene… that LONG scene of them just sort of hovering around each other, then giving a little kiss, and Forlani taking his shirt off to ‘make love’ to Death. And Death is a virgin… and there’s dramatic music~~ and nice bright light.

Thanks to BradFans.Net for the captures. Some simple graphics after the break…

VMA’s still on, and Pink just performed So What, which I dig. I actually own all Pink albums, even the first one, and I know that Pink pumps the audience good, just didn’t feel the performance tonight… Best of the night though, up until now.

Now, onto rumblings… Britney WON! She actually won a Moonman, which my dad was sure she wasn’t gonna do, and he was left flabbergasted. LOL – Anyway, I actually don’t care for any of the nominees… actually, dunno who’s nominated so I’m kinda going with the flow. xD But Britney won! Yes, I was also surprised, as I thought Katy Perry was gonna win and all…

Why the hell did MTV cut to commercials when The Ting Tings were performing? WHY! And they should really think about changing the category names from such as Best Female Video to Most Popular Video by a Female, because it’s hard to believe that a video by Jordin Sparks could win a spot in the nominees, instead of a Bjork’s video.

Hitoride Dekirumon! is another NHK show for children I happen to see on my archived videos. It ran through 1991 to 2006 (quite the long run compared to Occidental children programming). Not entirely sure what the name means, Google Translate shows it as One Possible!, but I’m more inclined to say that Continue Reading…

Eigo de Asobo (in its original 1990 title display 英語であそぼ, or in hiragana えいごであそぼ), meaning… I think, Play in English or Let’s Play in English. Well, I actually didn’t know what the heck ASOBO meant, lol… but I looked it up. (answer here, if you’re interested in use and phrases), is another NHK show I remember catching a glimpse of. I actually went through my video archive on VCR tapes, and I had recorded some of the show during its 1998-2001 period.

According to Japanese Wikipedia, the show began in 1990 and went through several changes (as apparently many Japanese kids shows do), Continue Reading…
