Wow, that was kindof well spread back in the 90s for some reason.  Stupid people claimed Marilyn Manson was the friend of Kevin Arnold on the Wonder Years. The kid named Paul with the glasses.  Never added up, and MM (who I never got either) was obviously many years older than what Paul would have been.

Stone Temple Pilots.  Never like them.  The singer at least, band was ok for what they were.

oh, well i just never have watched a lot of t.v.

seen the wonders yrs, but mostly know of fred savage cuz of  The Princess Bride.

i do remember the rumor about the Ultimete Warrior being dead and a new guy replacing him and it being claimed he was the real U.W.

in the 90's any t.v. i saw was nba, wrestling or star trek.

Apple. On the one hand, huzzah to them for convincing tens of millions of people to happily pay for what is essentially marketing, as opposed to the product itself. On the other hand, I want an MP3 player. Just an MP3 player. I don't want an iPhone, I don't want a touch screen, I don't want a tiny movie player. I just want an MP3 player. And since Apple kinda has a monopoly on the MP3 player interface (I don't mean the headphone jack interface, but the dock interface that most bookshelf-type stereos have), I would have to get an iPod classic. But I don't want to pay $250 for a fucking flash drive, just because it's in a sleek and shiny shell and has the Apple logo on it.

If you mean Scarface, I'm right there with you. What an overrated pile of horseshit that movie is. But I like mob/gangster shows/movies as a general rule.

Kindles - give me a proper book with real paper any day.  And bought from a bricks & mortar bookshop - preferably second hand.

Please with all seriousness tell me why people hate on tomato and sugar. You know ketchup is banned from French schools? lol

I mean, how did a condiment become known as a tacky element of life?

No mention yet of The Matrix. Most overrated sci-fi trilogy of all time. Anyone who thought that was a mind-blowing original concept was obviously not familiar with Descartes, or Plato for that matter. And the "bullet time" effect might have been cool the first time anyone saw it, but it has become the most sickeningly overused gimmick ever since, both in films and in video games.

Sensitive, misunderstood vampires who love humans.  What. the. fuck?  Vampires are predators who prey on humans.  In the original Dracula novel, vampires thought nothing of snacking on babies when they couldn't get an adult!!!  Even though they could be seductive, Bram Stoker's vampires were basically animated corpses and kind of disgusting, especially when they were sleeping off a meal.  Damn you Anne Rice!
