It Came from The 90s (1990s)

The July issue of American Vogue had an article on the return of the grunge look.

Now I don't have a problem with the grunge look, I actually kind of like it, although its definitely not something I'd wear myself.   Its return does make me feel a bit old as I distinctly remember being 14 years old and being excited that clothing very much like what I was already wearing was in the countries biggest fashion magazine.   

Anyway, there are plenty of things I loved about the 90s, and wish could be brought back.  Including the hilarious and quirky show Mystery Science Theatre 3000 (MST3K),  in which a guy and his robot palls are trapped in space and forced to watch some of worst movies ever made.  Sadly, Mystery Science Theatre was canceled in 1999 after 11 seasons.


The good news is that MST3K, or a version of it, is back with Riff Trax.   The new version consists of digital downloads of either complete movies or commentary soundtrack that you can play in concordance with a popular film and hear the actors from MST3K riffing away.  Anyway, it was through Riff Trax that I discovered something that should most definitely stay in the 90s.   The movie Cool As Ice.

 This hilariously horrible movie stars the rapper Vanilla Ice wearing some of the most hideous clothing ever conceptualized.
Riff Trax has it in their online catalog and you can download it and watch every unbelievable awful moment while listening to the MST3K writers side splitting commentary. My favorite part being the abandoned construction site love scene montage.

 If you are a fan of MST3K you really should check out Riff Trax and even better get tickets to the Riff Trax live showing of Star Ship Troopers on August 15.  

I can't wait!

  1. Fun flashback post! I was quite young when the grunge look was out in full force, so I didn't really get to experience wearing it too much back in the early 90s. Some elements made their way into my childhood wardrobe though, and I look back fondly on them - especially floral print babydoll style dresses and Doc Martin style boots (as well as "granny boots", which I lived in for much of the second half of elementary school).
