Totally 80s/90s


Inspired again to take up the mantle of nostalgia, 2019 was all about remembering the oddball days of the 1990s. If the 90s were your decade (or even if they weren’t, because hey, the past is cool!) here are my randomly random posts based on the most randomly random picks from one of the most massive 1990s lists that I could find.

Inspired by a couple of Buzzfeed lists, I spent 2014 drowning in the strange, wonderful, and wacky times of the 1980s. From those lists I borrowed ideas and expounded upon them with my own nostalgic fancies in my Totally 80s series. If you feel like taking a trip down memory lane yourself, click on the links below.
