Pop Culture References From Mr Schwarten's Day

Remember To keep in mind that Pop Culture is always shifting and changing over time.  Below are the notes we had in class today.

Due to popular request, here are some reminders from Mr Schwarten's days back in in 1990's.  I was a little young for some of these things, but they were the most prominent things that I liked to do back then.

JNCO Jeans (This is not me, but everyone says this guy looks like me)

Music: (These were some of my favorites)

This album was the 1st one I ever bought...  On a cassette tape...  The world has surely changed.

Smashing Pumpkins

This movie came out in 1993, but was hugely popular.  Most people would probably put Titanic here, but I still have never seen that movie to this day. 

This was the most popular movie from my high school years
Skating was a huge part of my life in middle school.  The picture below sums up a lot of the fashions and the baggy clothes for guys.

During this time Skating was deemed a destructive activity and may people got angry with me and my friends back then.  Once communities created skate parks the issue resolve itself.  So this is an example of the community solving a problem by spending some public funds.  I remember it being very controversial, but it has solved the problem for my parents community for years.  

Anyway, these are all things that I used to be a part of and things changed over time for me.  Pop culture changes over time and will for you as well.  Remember that pop culture and national culture sometimes merge and sometimes they change.  

Enjoy your day!
