When you look back in time, it's easy to forget what exactly happened when. Things sort of just blend together. Luckily we have YouTube videos to do our remembering for us now. Remember Videos just created a video about 1990 that shows off all that happened in pop culture back then, think Windows 3.0 Back to the Future 3, Total Recall, Robocop 2, some incredibly dated video games and more.
Not having cable and video games growing up seems to make me quite an outsider when it comes to all this nostalgia stuff. And I was born in 1982. It seems like I didn't know about a lot of pop culture that was from my time until I was 18 or so. The only music tapes I had growing up were Roxette. And we only had one big tape player in the house, so I would have to sit on the floor to listen to it. Still my favorite band! I watched Full House, DuckTales, Blossom, anything I guess that was on the networks. Fox came in but was very fuzzy. And I always thought of it as the channel "on the edge." That's why I loved hotels so much as a kid: the cartoon channels. I would get excited about going to a Motel 6 or Super 8 and think they were luxurious for having all those channels!
