I remember that fucking donkey kong 3d animated show 30 years later mainly because there was nothing to do but watch it when it was on on sunday afternoons. The first one, then the repeat two hours later. Awful.
This is peak childhood and I wish I could go back and un-waste all that time in front of the retard-cube to do those things. Though where I grew up you'd need a car for most of it.
Yeah, kinda. I have nostalgia for a lot of that shit. I found some VHS cassettes last summer, for example, and had some fun sitting in front of an old TV seeing what was on them. Mostly WWF. I vaguely remember being torn between watching Monday Night Raw and playing Ocarina of Time, so I recorded a few episodes.
The actual content isn't as nostalgic as the commercials. The way people looked and dressed. The pre-internet world, where if you were to explain some of the absurdities of the 2020s to a person of that era, they'd rightly call you a fucking loser.
>Like, you carry around this device 24/7 so you know when people are talking about you? Enjoy your swirlie, nerd.
Then again, I think back to sitcoms of that era like "Friends" (which in theory embodies the archetypal '90s twentysomething) and not only do I find nothing to be nostalgic for, it's mostly the same shit that I sometimes have to endure watching or overhearing when spending time with my mother: sub-mediocre people saying things that would repulse the audience if not for the laugh track.
There are things we've lost and which are to our detriment as a culture, but a lot of it is obviously just a step along the path that led us to this horrible period.
