What the World Was Like When the Elder Gods Were Born

Max Read · 10/15/14 01:00PM

Because the contemplation of death is the highest level of human activity, every year we meditate on the passage of time by examining the pop-culture artifacts that were omnipresent at the time of birth of the students now entering high school and/or college. What was the world like when the high school class of 2018 was born? The world was like, as it turns out, the pop-culture diet of a middle-class American adolescent.

It is absolutely not surprising that this edit of the intro to Disney's DuckTales, starring real ducks, exists. It's just surprising that it took so long—we've passed the peak of '90s pop culture nostalgia by now, right?—and that so much effort went into redoing it shot-for-shot when a much lazier video could have filled the same internet-hole.

The Three Stooges: Nope, Still Not Funny

Brian Moylan · 12/07/11 03:25PM

I'm sorry, but I never understood the appeal of The Three Stooges (outside of animated guest appearances on Scooby-Doo) and I don't at all understand why some brilliant sonofabitch in Hollywood thought it was a good idea to bring them back. It's the same joke over and over again for two hours!

Dallas: Never as Good as the First Time

Brian Moylan · 12/01/11 06:06PM

Because everything old is new again, TNT is bringing back Dallas this summer. You remember Dallas, the show your mom watched the night you were conceived, you young whipper snapper. Get ready for round two.
