Nostalgia: I remember playing Warcraft II PvP over a 56k modem with friends in high school. I’d purposefully pick up the phone if they were going to beat me. This is a video of Youtuber Gough Lui connecting to the internet 90’s style via an period-appropriate PC (with Intel Pentium
The 90’s, what can I say — I lived through them. Or, I should say, I survived through them, because I’m not sure what I was doing could be considered living. What I’m doing now either. This is a half hour mashup medley of 600 songs that were released from
This is a vintage video from all the way back in 1991 (30 years ago!) of a couple kids playing a variety of games in an Aladdin’s Castle arcade at the local mall. Growing up in Alabama we didn’t have any Aladdin’s Castles, but we had a Time-Out arcade at
This is a video from musician Alex Melton (previously) of Oasis’s 1995 banger ‘Wonderwall’ reimagined in the style of Blink-182. Is it an accurate representation? Who knows. All I know is Blink 182’s Dude Ranch album was very meaningful to me when it came out in high school, particularly ‘Dammit’.

Damn, that came out in 1995? Feels like it was just yesterday, doesn’t it? “Not at all.”
This is some surprisingly decent quality handheld footage (complete with mosh pit and crowd surfing!) from a 1994 No Doubt concert at Cal State’s Fullerton campus, about a year prior to the release of the band’s ‘Tragic Kingdom’ album. Granted a tripod for this camera would have been nice, but
This is a video of saxophonist and TikTok recording artist Evan Jacobson adding a sax solo to The Notorious B.I.G.’s 1994 banger ‘Big Poppa’. It works surprisingly well, although I understand why Biggie didn’t include a saxophone solo in the original, and that reason can only be that Kenny G
