It Came From the '90s: The Nineties on CNN

This series looks back at the 1990s and its influence on the generation of people who came of age during the decade.

A heads up for readers of this series: starting this Sunday July 9, CNN will air The Nineties. Here's how they describe the event on their website:
From executive producers Tom Hanks, Gary Goetzman, and Mark Herzog, in association with HBO, CNN's Original Series "The Nineties" explores the decade that gave us the Internet, DVDs, and other cultural and political milestones.
Yes, it's true. CNN is now copying me. I can see the Mango Mussolini's enraged tweets already: "Fake News network #CNN has NO originality. Copying a blogger! Sad." Sad, indeed.

I kid of course, because I can. You can be sure I'll be watching. If it's anything like CNN's previous miniseries on other decades, The Seventies and The Eighties, it'll likely be a breezy yet insightful look back at the cultural and societal shifts that shaped our lives back in the day.

The CNN series will also likely inspire some future '90s posts here, so stay tuned on that front. I am currently working on a few entries in the series now. Again, stay tuned. Once I find some time, motivation, and inspiration, I'll share them here.

Meanwhile, will you be watching The Nineties? More importantly, will you be watching while wearing flannel, drinking Snapple, and shouting "Cha-ching!" at your TV or tablet screen? You know I will.
