This is a video of musician Jared Halley performing all the individual instrumental parts (including vocals) of Green Day’s 1992 banger ‘Boulevard of Broken Dreams’ acapella, combining them into a multi-track performance of the entire song. That’s neat. You know, I always fancied my voice a bass guitar. It’s deep.
This is a video documenting launch day of the iMac at a CompUSA store in Alexandria, Virginia on August 15, 1998 — just over 24 years ago. The interviews with the Apple reps and customers are great. As my mom would say, it’s a real hoot. I remember when I
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

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’.
This is a commercial for the Yomega Brain yo-yo (Amazon ad link) aired during Saturday morning cartoons in the 90’s. It perfectly encapsulates the nineties in a now painful to watch 30-second ad. God, I was one of those kids. Toss in a kid with terrible hand-foot coordination playing hacky
Because nothing quite says gangster’s dreamworld like a resonant transformer producing high-voltage, low-current, high-frequency alternating-current electricity, this is a video of Coolio’s 1995 banger ‘Gangsta’s Paradise’ performed by a trio of Tesla Coils.
