Defining ’90s music

1 Comment

In search of songs that define music in the 1990s, Matt Daniels and Ilia Blinderman for The Pudding look for songs that that Gen Z still recognizes. Also, the songs that are mostly foreign to the younger generation:

In 1999, “Wild Wild West” was the song of the summer. Yet it is fading far faster than any other ’90s hit with comparable starting popularity. Twenty years ago, it was inescapable. Maybe Millennials are still too sick of it, even for nostalgia rotation. Perhaps it wasn’t even that great of a song to begin with, artificially inflated by Smith’s celebrity and cross-promotion with the film Wild Wild West.

Sorry, Will Smith.

The results are based on data gathered by The Pudding in an interactive survey.

lollipvps:

But you have to understand that when both my cousin and I came out as bisexual to our great-aunt, she told us we were too young to label ourselves.

You have to understand that both of my brothers are gay and came out to her before the ages of 15. She had absolutely no problem.

My great-aunt is a 69 year old lesbian.

You have to understand that not every aspect of biphobia has to do with homophobia.

YOU get some dignity and YOU get some dignity

Finland explained himself in the comic, but in 2010 Denmark started giving heroine to drug addicts for free and it was such a huge success that it has continued until today. Because of this Norway has started experimenting with it too.

It’s a lot cheaper for society because the addicts commit less crime, they don’t have to spend money on drugs so instead they spend it on things that are more healthy for them so they don’t end up on the hospital as often, they have to take the drugs in special clinics so there’s no chance of them taking an overdose or using dirty needles and spreading diseases among each other, there’s always staff ready to help them if they want to get off the drugs, and it’s a lot more effective way to help more people because addicts come into contact with professionals who want to help them before they even think about getting help themselves.

Nobody wants to be homeless or an addict. Though they often end up getting involved in criminality because of their situation, the act of being homeless or an addict is not a crime in itself and the people deserve help like anyone else.

It also gets money out of mafia/crime communities. Really hard to base your business on selling drugs people can get safer for free. Really hard to spend that drug money on weapons or other dangers if you never made it in the first place.

prokopetz:

“Pardon me, sir.”

“What, another one? I was sure I’d gotten all of you this time.”

“Afraid not. I’m going to have to ask you to put those jars down and leave the forest immediately.”

“What, that’s it? Aren’t you going to try and save the day with some ridiculous magical talent?“

“I’d prefer if it didn’t come to that.“

“No whimsical song to wake the stony heart? No farcical flower-based heroics?“

“Don’t make this more difficult than it needs to be, sir.“

“Well, since you’re obviously dying for me to ask, fine – what is your talent?”

“Violence.“

“… um.”

“I get that a lot.”

“I… don’t recall seeing you around the village before.“

“I’ve been travelling.“

“Just… how? You’re six inches tall – how does that even work?“

“Sir, what you should be asking yourself is how badly you want to learn the answer to that question.“

“… supposing I’ll just leave these here and be on my way, then.”

“Your cooperation is appreciated.“
