TGIF: 90s Edition!!!! Which of These Images is MOST 90s?

The 90s! Gave us so many great smile inducing photos!!!! With silly silly people in silly silly clothes. Which is good, because I am STILL GRUMPY. Hopefully HAHK this afternoon will cheer me up.

Valentine’s 90s Week of Romance: I Am Super Grumpy and I Am Going to Complain About Jerry Maguire (and a little Ranbir), and A Lot a Bit MEN!!!!!

The world is a bleak and horrible place filled with no sun and snowdrifts, it’s super unfair that I have to do work-work in the living room instead of continuing to sleep in my nice warm bed, and I don’t want to walk the dog. And you know whose fault that is? MEN! White Old Rich Men!!!! In some way I am not clear on, but I know I am mad about it. I’m gonna talk about how Tom Cruise/Cameron Crowe are terrible people who think they are good.

90s Week of Romance: Best Hindi Love Song of the 90s, “Tujhe Dekho” or “Pehla Pehla Pyar” or “Khandala”????

A challenge!!!!! Which will be well-nigh impossible! At least, it would be for me. All 3 Khans had amazingly iconic love songs in this era, with adorable spectacular co-stars and forever hit tunes and so on and so forth. But which is BEST? And I guess also which is worst, and which is middlest.

Valentines 90s Week of Romance!!! Sleepless in Seattle and Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, the Same Story Told Different

Woot! It’s 90s week!!!! Gotta start with the two most significant romances of the 90s, Sleepless in Seattle and Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. Yes, HAHK and DDLJ were more important films in general, and When Harry Met Sally is more influential, but these two movies were the biggest romantic hits of the decade, the ones that you pull out when you just want to swoon over love and not worry about anything else.
