Halloween Blog

I grew out of Halloween costumes, and the whole Halloween scene in general, about 6-7 years ago. I get though, that not everybody is a cynical curmudgeon like myself, and some people actually enjoy playing make pretend even though they’re like totally grown ups.

The thing is that Halloween these days has been watered down the same way Christmas has. There’s a war on Halloween! Trick or treating, once the staple of the holiday, is reserved for the newly bipedal crowd and their post-workday parents. Themed parties with an actual Halloween atmosphere are out.

The Top 50 Songs of the 1990’s

So, I kinda felt like doing this now. It’s a compilation of my personal favorites from 1990-1999.

To be honest, this list will be sacrilege to many. There’s barely any grunge, most of the big guns are missing, and overall it does not really display the true spirit of the decade.

There you will get your fix of Nirvana/Pearl Jam/Oasis/Chilis/etc. This is not to say that those bands aren’t great, or added tremendously to the tapestry of modern rock, it’s just that they’re on everyone’s lists, and I personally don’t listen to them that much.

I’m not saying that my list is in any way revolutionary or unique or OUT THERE, it’s just what I, you know, like.

OKAY? IS THAT FINE WITH YOU?
