Flashback Friday: The 1990’s: The birth of escapism?

What were the 1990’s about again? As a resident generation Y member/millennial who’se childhood was mainly in this decade… I got nothing. Was it about escapism? I watched a lot of television, played a bit of SNES, and etc. What were we escaping from then? We seemed to hate society a bit, and we were given an excellent tool to do so, the internet! It boomed! When the 2000’s hit, we had September 11th, 2001. We got really afraid and I believe carried over the escapism up to not eleven, but even further. Broad band internet is such a mixed blessing, huh? Below are some videos painting a better picture of what the 1990’s were actually about than I ever could.
