The other day, I was watching "American Inventor" and I got to thinking and remembering about a couple books that I really, REALLY loved as a child.
But unfortunately, I think that over the years, they may have gotten lost or accidentally thrown out or given away by my parents, and for some reason, I can NOT seem to remember either the title or name of the author/authors, so even though I want to re-purchase them, I am having a REALLY hard time locating them, and I am hoping that maybe someone on here has these books and/or knows the title and/or the name of the author or authors and can help me out.
The first book was a big children's soft-cover paperback book (I think it was at least a couple hundred pages) about pet care. It had chapters/sections for each kind of pet, from the usual (dogs, cats, fish, etc.) to the unusual (exotic animals, reptiles, rodents, etc.) It was illustrated but the pictures were not actual photos, but cartoons. The book was about the different aspects of pet care, including feeding, training, medical issues, etc, and dealt with nearly all kinds of pets.
The second book was a big children's joke book, but it also had a section for inventions that "you wish existed" Mostly it was a joke/riddle book. But it had this chapter for crazy inventions.
If anyone can help me remember and/or find these books from the 1980's-1990's, I'd really appreciate it.
Computer games in large boxes all the way - especially the super-old ones that were on floppy discs :D
Day of the Tentacle and Monkey Island have to be favourites.
But, we are forgetting all the amazing games from the nineties, anyhow, such as (to name a few):
Star Wars (Jedi Knight, etc.)
Age of Empires
Lands of Lore
Tomb Raider I, II and III
...and other such classics :D
Obviously all of the music was also fantastic, hurrah for early-mid nineties alterna-rock, the ska revival, and of course cheesy pop!
I just joined about 2 minutes ago. I'm 16, I live in buffalo ny. If anyone lives near there, PLEASE tell me because in the late 90's there was a radio station, Alice 92.9 and it was honestly the best thing ever, like sex for your ears. It molded my whole music taste growing up and I've been in total mourning ever since it went off the air. I have a shirt from Alice, but thats all thats left of her. :-(
Anyways- I loved the 90's the music mostly. I love Gin Blossoms, Filter, Oasis, The Verve Pipe, The Verve, REM, Lisa Loeb, Alanis Morisette and all those good ones. I's sure theres more. If anyone knows any awesome rock songs from the 90's, I'd be happy to hear them because they dont make rock like they did in the 90's. As you all know.
Also, I just bought an Orange nano baby on ebay tonight... hell yes- you know you had one.
I love the 90's shouldve talked more about the toys from the 90's...
WHERES POLLY POCKET!?
vh1 left out a lot of the good 90's junk!
Hey! My name's Leigh and I was born in January of 1989. I was in the teenie bopper age the whole time the 90's were going on. I loved the Spice Girls like none other, I worshiped the Backstreet Boys and absolutely loved all of the GOOD Nickelodeon shows they showed back then. I've been watching "I ♥ the 90's" on VH1 religiously and I'm so happy they finally did that show! I had no clue this site existed! I didn't even know there were these many fans of the 90's! I'm so happy!
