Musically speaking, the 90's were my formative years and for me it was the best musical decade since the 60's.

Before the 90's almost all music except jazz was quite awful. Even hip-hop was quite on the verge, having not yet evolved to what it would later. Having said that, the 90's were also full of awful music. Having said that, the 21st century so far has been full of awful music.

Hmm...

Luckily there's also been a lot of good music, so I'm not complaining. You just have to look a little further than the mainstream.

And there have even been exceptions in the mainstream! Gasp!


(Of course, this might just be my opinion. Go figure...)

Well, realistically every decade has had some really good and some terrible music. Even the disco heavy 70's had some great bands!

In my opinion, whilst the 90's were no stranger to rubbish music, there was more great music than most other decades.

This is, I suppose, entirely subjective, although as we are in The Thread I can confidently say that I am completely objectively correct and the rest of you are teh lamez!!111!!1

I love 90's music!
I don't like to much the music from the last years.
Most of them are just trying to shock or "look at me!" stuff
There are some that I don't know why they even call it music what they do...

I was formed in the 80s so I love 80s music. The 80s were the last decade in which you had to have some musical talent as a prerequisite to end up in the Top 40 or whatever list of popular music. After the 80s computers were so good at deforming your voice and rythm that that was not necessary anymore. Luckily, there are still, and will always be, people who are real musicians and can play beautiful music.

I believe this video summarizes what people are looking for, in pretty much every media of entertainment:

It exemplifies perfection in musical quality, TV-programming and the art of a TV-show opening.

And now for something completely different.
Finally Ratko Mladich has been caught. He was the worst war criminal in Europe after WW2, responsible for the death of thousands of innocent people. Let's hope we can close the book on the Balkan wars after his conviction.

I'm happy that a lot of my favourite music happens to be coming out right now. You just have to know where to look!

It always gets on my nerves hearing people say "music was better in (whenever)" and "there's been no good music since (whenever)". Especially when some of these people are YOUR OWN DAMN AGE.

Didn't I mention two years ago that I really wanted to ________ Hammy's enormous ____________, since he bragged about how impressive it was, much to the envy of his friends?

Spoiler:
I once correctly guessed one of these. It was for Jimmy White Snooker and when it asked for the word my friend looked it up and challenged me to guess, saying that I'd never do it because it was in the French section of the manual. As "Table" is the same in French as in English I guessed that. He almost fell off his chair in surprise.

> Change Installation Type to Double-check developers aren't trying to sneak a load of malware onto my system as part of the install

Also check the disk space requirements. I understand that RLacey is a highly complex program and I might need to skip some of the less used modules to fit it in. When am I going to need a thread-killing utility anyway?

Assuming there is a conviction

This actually fit right in with my international law and criminal law (which includes a part about international criminal law) exams I've had going on
