Subject: 1995

Written By: MrCleveland on 10/12/09 at 1:45 pm

Here's another year of view thread. To me, 1995 was like 1994...but different too....

Jan-It was a month where not much happened, but it felt like 1994 still...
Feb-I went to the Rain Forest Exhibit at the Zoo...that was cool.
Mar-I went to Deer Creek and that was fun.
Apr-It was a slow month, but I started to watch 'Mystery Science Theater 3000'
May-I started to watch 'Home Improvement'
Jun-I saw 'Forrest Gump'
Jul-It was a fun summer with the TV shows I watched and taped.
Aug-I made a tape that had most of the stuff I remember in 1995.
Sep-I would start Jr. High and ditch the Disney Channel on cable (Now I wish I didn't).
Oct-I spent some times with my Youth Group.
Nov-In my mind...I would make-up The Deep Red Band (It would be a band featuring me and a few characters that I saw on TV).
Dec-It would be the 1 1/2 Best Year that I would ever have.

I agree that 1995 was like an extention of 1994, so I tend to get them mixed up when I try to look back and remember. A lot of the music I was listening to might have been released in '94, such as Dave Matthews Band's "Under the Table and Dreaming", Hootie and the Blowfish, and Nine Inch Nails "The Downward Spiral". What stands out about 1995 is I was listening to mostly alternative, like Pavement. 311's self titled album was really good (probably my favorite album of that year, and by 311). The only major news event I can recall at the time is the OKC bombing.

I started my senior year in high school in the Fall of 1995.  It was a little less hectic than my junior year. 

Finally got to go out with this guy I was madly in love with.  We were together for a little while, but it didn't last.  :-\\

I listened to a variety of music that year...Hole, Veruca Salt, Liz Phair, Weezer, Elastica, TLC, Seal, ThalĂ­a, Selena (:\'(), Michael Jackson, and a lot of others. 

Mostly watched MTV or VH1 for music videos and Beavis and Butthead.  In general, I was watching more cable and much less network TV.

At the time, this was like the first year I remember not liking. It wasn't the first year that sucked to me. It just the first year I really, truly looked at as sucking. Hard to explain. It just felt really dull to me at the time. Looking back, I like it much better. Really great albums released that year. Underrated movie year, too.

Compared to 1994, it was dull. I agree!

The WB made it's debut that year, though was more focused on cable and only watched "Unhappily Ever After"...for only several episodes

Don't think I watched "Kids WB", though I wasn't into "Animaniacs" anymore and my Power Rangers phase was also over.

I was 19 years old at the time, almost 20 and pretty much fresh out of high school, and had a disastrous year at college.

Because of that, I moved to Oakville, where I still live.

Musically speaking, I was listening to Dave Matthews Band, Tragically Hip, Hootie and the Blowfish, Garth Brooks, Soundgarden, Devo, Depeche Mode, and Pink Floyd.

I was also watching on TV, Friends, Ren and Stimpy, Seinfeld, Melrose Place, Home Improvement, and Hercules, The Legendary Journeys.

I also went to the World Youth Day, in Manila, Philippines. It was really great, and fun. The city was a interesting place to visit.

Unfortuntly, I had a heat rash on my leg, and didn't feel too great the first three days. And my friend's leg, was nearly ran over by the Popemobile!

;D

1995 was the year I put my past behind me and just started over. After being committed in a mental facility in from Dec. 16 - 18 in '94, I decided I needed to dedicate that christmas vacation to changing my life around. I was a month shy of 15 at the time, and i was starting a new program at school after my expulsion. It was a program for those who were expelled could still get an education and still be in school with a little more provided attention, which, I was supposed to be out of the 8th grade like my sister and best friend were but I got myself out of it somehow. When I started it first day back from christmas vacation, it was so much easier and better, and being in a class with my best friend and sister turned out to be a good thing, they noticed how well the three of us worked together.

1995 was also the year I was introduced to weed, which was on valentine. I grew a fondness of it which died by the time '96 came about. Spent the summer going to the local pool everyday for the first time since 1992. Went to my first rave in August. Started 10th grade that Fall.

1995, along with 1993 are the two best years for music, IMO. I was listening to the radio a lot that year. I think it's very different from 1994, although that may only be because of how different my life was those 2 years. But it seems like pop culture, particularly music and fashion, were pretty much identical throughout 1995 and 1996. With rap becoming a little more new-school, and r&b dominating the charts with eurodance.
