Stuff From The 90′s Music Video Gets Real Serious Real Quick

There’s a bad habit online that seems to romanticize the 90′s like it was just a perfect decade of sunshine, Oval Office escapades, and Ninja Turtles.

To battle this obnoxious trend, Pop Roulette just published this genius, overly-enthusiastic and happy 90′s focused music video, titled Let’s Name Stuff From The 90′s

Looking like they came straight outta 1996, the dance crew sings and dances about all the great nostalgic ‘stuff’ from the 90′s, like Lunchables, Boy Meets World, and the war in Kosovo. 

Wait… Kosovo? We’re only covering happy, fun stuff from the 90′s that promote fond memories. Nothing bad ever happened in the 90′s, remember?

5 Things ‘Arthur’ Neglected To Teach Us About Life

Youtube via Arthur Complete Series 2014

The PBS animated afternoon program ‘Arthur’ may have taught us life lessons for over 200 episodes, but that doesn’t mean it left us totally prepared. Here are some lessons ’Arthur’ dropped the ball on.

1. We All Die Alone

Youtube via Arthur Complete Series 2014

Arthur had a whole school full of friends, a loving family, and a loyal dog, but even after 17 seasons, they never managed to do an episode showing the fact that, even if you’re gripping your spouse’s hand in the hospital bed, you ultimately slip away and face that great unknown with no one else beside you.

2. Time Takes Everything

Like most kids’ shows, Arthur hit the reset button at the end of every episode and got things more or less back to the status quo. Sure, he celebrated a few birthdays, but Pal stayed a puppy, the Tibble Twins remained annoying toddlers, and third grade seemed to go on forever. These are lies. Everything we know, everything we love, is devoured by the insatiable beast of entropy. Friends move. Romances end. Pets die.

3. Religion Is No Comfort

A progressive show right out of the gate, Arthur devoted seasonal holiday episodes to showing the diverse cast of kids celebrating Hanukkah, Ramadan, Kwanzaa, and even an agnostic student welcoming in the Winter Solstice. What it failed to point out is that all of these superstitions and token memorials are just social constructs designed to subjugate the lower classes and/or perpetuate the illusion of an orderly universe. “Happy” Holidays.

4. What Matt Damon Might Look Like As Other Animals


Sure, celebrity guest star Matt Damon may have stopped by Elwood City in the 11th season as an adorable tiny-eared bear—but what about all the other anthropomorphic reimaginings they could’ve designed for him? We can’t rest until we see Damon as an alligator, tapir, and maybe even some kind of sentient moss.

5. That You Can Live With Someone For 6 Years And They Can Turn Around And Forget You In A Second

When Buster moved away, he and Arthur kept in touch via postcard, demonstrating that the bonds of friendship are unbreakable. If only Arthur had mentioned that the same can’t be said for romantic relationships, when in the span of one argument, you can go from intertwined souls imprinted on each other’s cellular memories to strangers in the same bed with so much distance between you that it may as well be infinite, until finally there’s nothing left to talk about but the logistics of packing up the IKEA plates as you ring in your new life as a ghost in your own skin. Thanks for nothing, Marc Brown.

You Need To See This Magical Concept Art Of Disneyland

It was meant to be The Happiest Place on Earth from the beginning.

1. Everyone knows Disneyland is The Happiest Place on Earth.

But what a lot of people DON’T know is the amazing effort that went into making the park as magical as it is today!

2. But in these rare archival images that were used to sell prospective East Coast licensees on the park, you can see Disneyland BEFORE it was actually Disneyland.

3. And it turns out that the plans for the park…

4. …were pretty similar to what guests get to enjoy today!

Although the Monstro the Whale ride was never built. :(

5. Like Adventureland, which looks just as wild on paper…

6. …as it does in Southern California!

7. And Tomorrowland looked just like the futuristic metropolis you would expect.

This was nearly identical to what Tomorrowland looked like when the park opened, though it looks very different today.

8. Last but not least, sketches of Sleeping Beauty Castle look JUST as magical as it does in real life… although we’re missing the fortress-like walls!

Fresh Breath Of Farm Air Music Video Parodies Fresh Prince

The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air theme song is one of the most popular nostalgic tunes online. There are countless spoofs and parodies posted all the time. Even Will Smith himself apparently can’t help but drop the beat when he’s a guest on television talk shows. 

Last summer, the web saw a slew of farmer-themed parodies of pop music hits from The Peterson Farm Bros, such as the I’m Farming And I Grow It spoof of LMFAO, and Farmer Style spoof of PSY.

Now, the farmers from Kansas have traveled back to the 90′s to spoof what the Fresh Prince theme song might sound like if Will was originally from a Kansas farm instead of West Philly.

’90s Kid Forever! This Man Still Chooses To Watch Scrambled Porn

If elections were held to name the ultimate ’90s kid, this guy just might win by a landslide.

Meet 28-year-old Michael Schoen. Like many ’90s kids, he loves talking about old-school Nickelodeon shows, he mourns the fact that you can no longer buy Dunkaroos, and he still remembers exactly what the inside of a Blockbuster smells like. But what separates him from the rest of his peers is his steadfast commitment to a certain—ahem—after-dark form of entertainment: Michael still chooses to watch scrambled pornography!

Yep, we’re not kidding. In an age when an endless buffet of hi-def nudity is instantly accessible to anyone with a Wi-Fi connection, Michael, like a true ’90s purist, still elects to stare endlessly at the squiggly picture on encrypted television channels in hopes of spotting an occasional nipple.

“There’s just something really special about straining your eyes for hours on end in hopes of spotting a stray vulva in scrambled Spice Channel programming,” said Michael, who watches the footage with his finger readied on his TV’s input button in case he hears someone coming and needs to switch over to Sega. “There’s just no challenge in watching porn on the internet—I live for the hunt.”

Michael admits that watching scrambled porn has its frustrating moments, such as thinking you’re masturbating to a wonderfully perky breast only to realize it’s actually a man’s chin. But he insists this is also part of what makes the experience so exciting: the mystery of not really knowing what you’re jerking it to, but trusting your imagination to complete the picture anyway.

“In my opinion, it’s just a vastly superior porn-viewing experience,” said Michael. “If you’re doing it any differently, then I just don’t think you can truly call yourself a ’90s kid.”
