Friday Five: Two Thousand Zero Zero Party Over Oops Out of Time

Friday, August 26, 2016
This week's Friday Five:
  1. What's your favourite song from 1999? It's way too hard to pick a favourite album, let alone a song. Too many good records came out in that year, so I'm just gonna list my top ten:

    • Blink-182 - Enema of the State
    • Foo Fighters - There is Nothing Left to Lose
    • Incubus - Make Yourself
    • Linkin Park - Hybrid Theory
    • Matthew Good Band - Beautiful Midnight
    • Moby - Play
    • Our Lady Peace - Happiness... Is Not a Fish That You Can Catch
    • Red Hot Chili Peppers - Californication
    • Silverchair - Neon Ballroom
    • Thursday - Waiting

  2. What are some of your favourite films from 1999? Oooh, that was a good year for film:

    • 10 Things I Hate About You
    • American Beauty
    • The Bone Collector
    • Cruel Intentions
    • Fight Club
    • Girl, Interrupted
    • The Green Mile
    • The Matrix
    • She's All That
    • The Sixth Sense
    • Toy Story 2
    • The Virgin Suicides

  3. What's something interesting that happened on your birthday in 1999? Whether or not it's interesting is subjective, but according to Wikipedia, Neopets was launched on my birthday in 1999.

  4. How did you ring in the new year as 1999 became 2000? With my parents and my brother at some fancy New Year's Eve gala that my dad's Lions Club chapter was hosting.

  5. What's something that's gotten better since 1999? Technology, but that's kind of a cheap and obvious answer. So I'm gonna say restaurants. Also, makeup. Also, eyebrows.

  1. Wait: eyebrows are better than in 1999? Forgive me--I'm a guy, so these things are a mystery--but in what way are eyebrows better?

    1. Haha, the shape of them. In the '90s, it was all about the skinny, over-tweezed brows or the "sperm" eyebrow (like they literally looked like sperm, lol). Like, nothing about them was remotely natural. They looked like they were drawn on with a marker. Now, everyone wants fuller, more naturally arched brows. This and this are perfect examples. :)
