You're probably right. But they went a bit nuts doing the "WHYYYYYYY?!" voices and replaying Nancy crying on the floor.

The one image I remember most of all from the whole thing is Tanya asking the Olympic judges to let her re-skate because her laces were messed up. There she is, her foot up on the judges table and pointing at her shoe, asking for a do-over at the Olympics. And she got it. Incredible.

      Me: Think he will be?

      Her: Only if we have done something to anger one God or another.

      Donal Logue= moronic....sorry.


    Grounded For Life is one thing...but I highly reccomend a movie called "The Tao Of Steve" that he starred in.






I accidentally flipped to "Comic Book Villains" the other day and I rather enjoyed Donal Logue in that. I think he has a production and/or direction credit in that movie.

And I love the woman (sorry, can't remember her name) that was talking about Forrest Gump last night: "You know life IS like a box of chocolates. And I'm gonna eat every f**king one of them." I just about blew my teeth out laughing at the delivery of that line.

I like Hal Sparks, though I've never heard of him before these VH-1 panel shows, and I've loved Donal Logue for years, but I can't stand Michael Ian Black. That guy even annoyed me on Ed!

By the way, a lot of the people I know (myself included) were laughing at Nancy Kerrigan the same month it happened. On the other hand, we are assholes.

And I figured the world would need a bit more time before we could start looking back at the 90's. Guess I was wrong.

Yeah, because I'm like, sooo nostalgic for 1999.
Thanks a lot VH1. Why don't they just make a show for people nostalgic for the previous week?
Oh....wait... Best Week Ever

    Voice over: The Macarena became an overnight sensation.
    Michael Ian Black: The Macarena. Truly did.... Become. An overnight.... Sensation. [nods knowingly at camera]

    Ahh ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! Hilarity! It's ironic that he restated something! And SLOWLY!!! Ah ha ha ha ha! Genius!


Yep. He comes off as one of those pricks who thinks of themselves as hilarious just because he talks quietly and pretends to be introspective in what he thinks is an amusing fashion.

I enjoyed the 80's series, but this 90's thing is pretty underwhelming. It's not like the events of, say, 1997 have some huge nostalgic value to them in 2004.


Regardless, nice to see Hanson get some TV time again, with Scott Ian praising them no less.

Is it just me, or do the "Dirty Alternative Rocker" segments just die a slow, painful death every time they're on? Although Liz calling Billy Corgan chubby works.

ANy excuse for Liz Phair to be on my TV is worth it. She could be reading the instructions on how to use Windex, and I would tune in!

BTW, some of the "celebrities" they have? WTF? I mean, I know some of the comedians will be unknown, but a guy who was on REAL WORLD? WTF?

And I cannot believe that any of you MIB haters didn't laugh at his hilarious Zubaz pants diatribe. Man, I was rolling.



Joe Wilson (looking at Interocitor manual)- Hey, here's something my wife could use in the house...
Crow T. Robot- A man?
Joe Wilson- An interocitor incorporating an electron sorter.
Cal Meechum- Oh, she'd probably gain 20 pounds while it did all the work for her.
Tom Servo- Cal, you bitch!

Speaking of Zubaz, why would they wait until 1996 to bring them up? I had at least 5 pairs by 1991.

(Red/gold/white for the Chiefs, Red/white/black for the Bulls, orange/black/white for the Bengals, red/white/blue for the Kansas Jayhawks, Buffalo Bills, & United States of America, and black/white for zebra stripes with no team affiliation.)

If you mean Kevin Powell, he's probably not that thrilled with them billing him as from the Real World. He has had a fairly good career going as a journalist.

And I'm not complaining about her presence, the segments just suck. She can't even redeem them with a "Fuck and Run" reference.

SEADAWG: I don't even remember those. A castmate in a high school version of "Clue" (he was Ace Ventura, we took liberties) MAY have worn them for that role, but I don't remember them existing.

To illustrate how pop-culture illiterate I am these days. When I first watched 'I love the 80's' and saw MIB I got that "I know that face but not the name" syndrome. I racked my brain for quite awhile, after a very tumultuous exploration of that graveyard of brain cells, I finally solved the puzzle and realized who my long lost friend was.

Someones avatar on the Wienerboard.

The man isn't really my cup of tea humor wise, in moderation his style may be funny, but the novelty wears off fast. My biggest gripe was him and the other dude on the 1973 episode, talking about toking and listening to Pink Floyd's 'Dark Side of the Moon' I went to the IMDB shortly thereafter and found out he was 2 when the album was released, acting as if they were part of the 70's. Everyones done it, but lets be chronologically accurate.

Where if I served sandwiches on the set of Independence Day, making me eligible to be on 'I love the 90's', and they asked me about, say, Limp Bizkit. I'd say, fuck Limp Bizkit fuck there fans, I was rolling J's and listening to DSTM.
