    Hehehe...the idea of the 90's being 'nostalgic'. I can't tell any difference between the 90's and today aside from this phone.

    I haz a Spotify but haven't used it. I suppose I shpukd check it out since all my music gets streamed through my phone now.

    I believe... The xbox one will hold the nfl package next season without contract to direct. Just like the ps3 did a year ago. It's a bit pricy... But it's like 1.5 months of your bill previously. At least it was last time. 2 bills.

    Now... If you're within range to grab local channels and get the local Titan games.. You're boned because they black out local games. Just a thought.

    Huge difference between the stuff then and now. There is no redeeming quality in today's top 40 music. It is absolutely atrocious. I guess there's some stuff now and then that I don't mind, but not very often.

    A lot of the bands I still like today started back then, and I remember listening to them on the radio in like 3rd grade.

    You were still old in the 90's lol... I was in elementary.

    KoHmm..yeah, my music career started in 1990. Divorced in '93. Downward spiral for a few years. Bounced and became business owner/family man.
    Musically all I remember are grunge standards, Alannis Morrissette, Jewel, NSync, The Tragically Hip.
    I didn't get a computer until after 2000. Had a Nextel 2-way. Still dressed the same as I do now.

    My nostalgic music is 80's alternative. Not a fan of 80's pop. 90's pop had boatloads of sappy love songs with that vile Yamaha DX7 Rhodes patch...HAAAATE that stuff and it's back all over the radio again.

    Blink-182, Foo Fighters, Third Eye Blind, RHCP...

    Granted these are bands that are still around to an extent.

    If you were a kid in the 90s and you hated Blink, you sucked ass.

    I wouldn't expect older folks to like them.
