Wow. Even Young People Are Old Now.

28 years ago today. Where were you?

In your Gardiner art book from college (everyone still has it in a box in the basement), the intro (you skipped it) addresses critiquing art in context, which meant understanding the times in which the work was released. Honestly, though, there's not much to report on the 90s. Nothing really happened. Bill Clinton would soon be elected president and the American economy would be at its height, equalling the prosperity of the early 1920s. The only real issue was music. Case in point, the biggest songs of September '92? Right Said Fred's "I'm Too Sexy For My Shirt," Sir Mix A Lot's "Baby's Got Back" and "Jump" by Kris Kross. So, yes, I remember it well. Cobain and Co. were a Godsend.
