43 Things That Made Christmas in the ’90s All That

43 Things That Made Christmas in the '90s All That

We aren’t ashamed to admit that we’re obsessed with the ’90s. After all, we’re talking about a decade that gave us Tamagotchi and Clueless! And as we listen to classic holiday albums by *NSYNC and Mariah Carey this month, we’re reminded yet again of what made Christmas in the ’90s so rad. There were cheesy Christmas sweaters (worn nonironically), even cheesier pics of boy bands in Santa garb, holiday episodes of our favorite TV shows, and, of course, JTT in I’ll Be Home For Christmas. See some of the most memorable toys, music, movies, and more from the holidays in the ’90s! Read more on Tres Sugar…

The Top 7 Hair Metal Videos In Which The Music Is So Powerful It Defies the Laws of Physics

The Top 7 Hair Metal Videos In Which The Music Is So Powerful It Defies the Laws of Physics

I don’t know you, but I’ve spent an awful lot of my life wishing that I’d been a teenager around the time that I was born. Bon Jovi was touring for Slippery When Wet in 1987! “Here I Go Again” was topping the charts! “Talk Dirty to Me” was one of the most popular videos of the year! We were out of the recession! The Soviet Union was about to fall apart and Ronald Reagan was making Americans feel like we really were the cool kids!

And apparently we had so much confidence in rock and roll that we believed it could do ANYTHING. LITERALLY ANYTHING. Hair metal bands seemed like they were obsessed with proving that they were the anti-conformist avant garde (while also basking in the tremendous capitalistic success they were intent on wasting on cocaine), and to do so they made videos that pitted the band against authority figures, using only music as their weapon. If they’re to be believed, the sound waves emitted from instruments and the adrenaline they get from performing transforms them into the bastard child of Gandalf and the Mighty Hulk.

Anyway, god knows we need a good laugh right now in 2014, so without further ado, here’s seven (OK, eight) music videos that’ll show you the righteous anti-authority power of hair metal. Keep reading »

Get Nostalgic: The Cast Of “The Wonder Years” Reunites!

Get Nostalgic: The Cast Of "The Wonder Years" Reunites!

Awwwww! That’s what I couldn’t help but think when I saw these photos of the cast of “The Wonder Years,” the iconic late-’80s show about a family in the ’60s, reunited to promote the upcoming DVD release. Kevin Arnold (Fred Savage), his meathead brother Wayne (Jason Hervey), his hot, buck-toothed hippie sister Karen (Olivia D’Abo), their parents, Jack and Norma (Dan Lauria and Alley Mills), Kevin’s BFF Paul (Josh Saviano) and his longtime love interest Winnie Cooper (Danica McKellar) … the whole gang was there! Can I be honest about something? I never understood why Kevin was so crazy about Winnie. She was kind of a snot. Also, remember when everyone in the world believed the rumor that Josh Saviano was Marilyn Manson? Total myth. Speaking of Josh, he posted tons of pics of the reunion on Twitter. Check ‘em out after the jump… Keep reading »

Like We’ve Been There Before: Check Out The Cast Of “Friends” Then & Now

Friends Cast Hanging Out With Their Younger Selves

To mark the upcoming 10th anniversary(!) of the “Friends” finale, People magazine used the power of Photoshop to unite the show’s stars with their younger selves. While some of the transformations are more dramatic than others (David Schwimmer has definitely earned himself a spot in the “celebrities who never age” club), they’re all very entertaining — if only for the amazing ’90s fashion trends the younger Friends are rocking. Wow do I not miss the button-up tank top vest. But I digress. Take a look at the rest of the cast photos after the jump!  Keep reading »

O-Town Reuniting Without Ashley Parker Angel

O-Town was the by far the best boy band ever created on a reality show called “Making The Band” in the year 2000. We all enjoyed their vocal (and hair) stylings until 2003, when the band broke up, leaving the world a dark, sad, lonely place where fans could only ask, “Why? Whyyyyy?” while listening to “Liquid Dreams” on repeat and crying. (Not that I did that.) (I totally did.) Today, our long national nightmare comes to an end: O-Town has announced they are reuniting and working on a new album. Hooray! Rejoice! But wait, there’s a catch. The new O-Town will be a smaller and significantly less blonde group, because Ashley Parker Angel has opted not to renew his O-Town membership card. This news brings up many important questions, most pressingly: What is O-Town without Ashley Parker Angel? What is life without Ashley Parker Angel? Doesn’t this go against the message of their biggest hit, “All Or Nothing”? I need to go lie down. Check out the band’s reunion announcement video after the jump, if you feel emotionally ready for it. Keep reading »
