for some reason right now, i am fascinated with remembering the year 1996.
(nostalgia seems to be my obsession, i guess).
i don't know who reads this blog but i think i like to remember for the simple sake of remembering. documenting is also an obsession of mine because i think that when I die, something will be left (even if it is on the internet).
the olympics ruled my heart. moceanu + whatnot (but i've talked about that already). music was huge for me. fiona apple, bone thugs. biggie + tupac. TLC. aalyiah. edwin mccain's one hit. sister hazel (ha, i admit) god, back then so many singles. ones that you would be afraid to admit that you liked today but back then, you couldnt help but love.
i remember lying in my bed with headphones on, falling asleep every night to Third Eye Blind's self-titled album. it was comforting. it was red.
i still love that album. I recently found 3 other people to admit that they not only own but love that album as well. it was a relief.
i also remember when MTV was good. when you could turn it on and find music videos of all genres, interviews with your favorite artists, and good documentaries/movies.
Romeo + Juliet. I was obsessed with that movie. Titanic. Basketball Diaries. (i think i was obsessed with leonardo dicaprio).
Or, remember MTV's "celebrity wrestling"? i used to watch that show with my brother and cousins.
or golden girls! i still love this show immensely but i used to watch the marathons with my older cousin Gary. I would make fun of him and call him "dorothy". he took pride in it, secretly.
i miss him.
i just realized that.
remembering so much kills hours.
