Lambchop's song will never end, and Gameboy will always be a big brick to me. I remember Warheads, and when it was worth getting up on Saturday mornings for the cartoons, and I looked for Waldo. I remember Highlight's, and I remember the internet back before MySpace, and when people used phones to talk, and not to text.

I'm a 90s Kid.
