The 90s

Ever wish you could re-live the 90's? Do you miss seeing music videos from bands like Cheap Trick, Warrant and INXS? How about seeing Cher half naked riding a cannon? (Remember the video 'If I Could Turn Back Time'?) Well, all you have to do is visit Russia as these are the only songs played on trains and music videos played on buses. (Oh, they do like ABBA too.)

It seems that the iron curtain went back up in the 90s. In addition to the music, the tour guide I had at the 'Natural History Museum' talked all about the Seattle Supersonics from the 90s. He talked about Gary Payton and Sean Kemp. He also knew Karl Malone and Shaquille O'Neal. He asked me who the stars were now and I was sorry to have to break the news to him that the Sonics no longer exist - at least not in Seattle - and that I don't follow basketball so couldn't tell him any other of the star players.

That's hilarious! I bet there are some awesome graphic elements left over from the 80's, too. How about the fashion scene?

Miss you hon! Will write more soon.

I can't believe that he was so into basketball but didn't know anything more recent!
