Friday Nineties – 1997 – Buffy the Vampire Slayer

If any of you were about to correct me and tell me that the Buffy movie came out in 1992, not 1997, shut up.  The movie was OK.  The TV series was extraordinary.  And not just because I have a weird thing for Sarah Michelle Gellar.  I apparently only have a weird thing for her…

Friday Nineties – Clinton Clinton Clinton

In the Nineties most people didn’t have very much to do on email, mainly because we still talked to each other on the phone and it took longer to get online to read email than it did to actually go to the person’s house.  Of course it is a very different world now and look…
